  • “Nothing is just potatoes to Joel Barish”

    Great closing statement to vendor by Joel. It proves Joel is able to connect with anybody around the world and he understands their cultures. He knows what they are saying, their responses to Joel’s questions. After years of travel to other countries, he has taken each culture making them a part of him. Nothing is alien to Joel anymore, I can put on an out-of-this-world clothing outfit and Joel would give its’ history. Nothing is just potatoes to him, but it is about the people, the culture, and the relationship DeafNation has created with the natives.

    Relieved he didn’t have to learn how to peel all those potatoes? (heh)
