I like this very much! I related to roughly 85% of your profile statements, and you put words to that inner-monologue in a very precise way.
@DullHypothesis I guess, but the responses are still awfully, "You look so much prettier when you smile!" I don't think her statements were depressing, just honest.
@j-i-a That puppy looks like she's had a few too many. Why doesn't she realize that she's basically ASKING FOR IT??
@de Pizan That's how I read it, too. Catcalling is a way to put focus on someone who isn't asking for it, and a way to exert power over them. It is dehumanizing. By immediately busting out a camera and taking their picture, I think she is shifting the focus back on them and making them the spectacle. I feel as though it would be very empowering to get out of an uncomfortable and threatening situation by doing something so unexpected. Even if she doesn't show them the error of their ways, at least she is preserving the dignity they are trying to strip from her. Pretty cool!
@Lily Rowan I was totally thinking the same thing! If poor Jess had to contend with that ad, I imagine she might've thrown herself through a sliding glass door and run screaming into the Hollywood Hills. Nick would just watch on with an amused grin on his smug face.
On Grimes' Tour Rider: "If possible, one cute bulldog, french bulldog, pug or pomeranian to visit & hang out"
@Lily Rowan Ooooh! Pick me! I know the answer! Trent and the other band members douse themselves and their clothes liberally in corn starch before shows to create a dusty, post-apocalyptic look. I saw it in a documentary years ago, so I assume this is still the case. Unless Trent now uses it to prepare Cook's Country's recipe for Honey Fried Chicken, which uses only corn starch as a batter!
This was perfect. And THIS is how I want to spend my retirement.
@TheLetterL Gorton's fisherman should be included on the fuckyeahcraggydudes Tumblr, if it ever comes to pass. Fishy Hot!
@MashaNigel Weirdly Beardless! That is just dying to be the name of something major!
