This week, TNB’s DON MITCHELL lauds those who’ve taken him where he’s never been (and this is from a guy who’s been almost everywhere):


Matt Baldwin was safe in an underwater cage as a Great White circled. He didn’t stick his arm out.


Sean Beaudoin took me to a batshit crazy house party. The pre-party was pretty crazy too.


Ronlyn Domingue showed me what it’s like to be a stranger at an early-teen party.


I went with MJ Fievre and watched an autopsy that didn’t prepare her for what else she found.


What could be better than going with Ben Loory to the looney bin, except going to the Loory Bin?


Tyler McMahon battles with bureaucracy in a prison; loses that one, but wins with the prisoners.


Our own Prince Uche Ogbuji shows us Nigeria from the inside.


Erika Rae deals with personal space issues in a sauna with an asshole — in a public sauna he thinks is his.

The Nervous Breakdown is an online culture magazine and literary community. It was founded in 2006. Our masthead can be found here.

    Ah, thanks for the shout-out, Don. I was just thinking about you today while driving down the mountain. Leaning into the curves, of course, made me think about the post you made about your wicked set of wheels. Thinking of that post made me think of the memory of coconut pudding and macademia nuts. Then I started thinking, man it’s been too long since I’ve talked to him. Anyway, it’s nice to be thought of back. Hope you’re well!

    It was a toss-up between the sauna and the schoolbus-driving one, but the sauna was more of a “place,” so I went with it.

    I had more favorites than there was room for.

    What an appropriate topic for an anthropologist, eh? Thanks for the inclusion. Thank God I never have to go back to that place.

    Great new photo of you.

  4. Mahalo Don!

    I love getting some good recommendations from the archives this way…

    Hey thanks. It was my pleasure to take you to my beloved, zany homeland, just as you’ve taken me so many times to the vibrant islands off across the international date line. We’ll have to get back to swapping earthy culture proverbs sometime.
