In one hole, out the other. [Jan. 15th, 2008|11:44 pm]

Tonight, we were bored- and Nadine was talking about those Netty Pots or whatever that were on Dr. Phil/Dr.Oz/Opera?? I think the conversation started whilst I was doing my routine bitch about how shitty my sinuses feel, and how much worse my ear infection is gett'n. Anyway- we ended up doing Mcguyver nasal lavages in the bathtub with yogurt containers. There's something super satisfying about syphoning salt water through a good friends nasal passage.

The Great, Mighty and Infallible Nail [Jan. 7th, 2008|11:47 pm]

Oh... Im out of practice at this.


I dont even know how to make conversation with myself.

...I just ripped the cuticles off of all my nails and painted them. I feel like thats an admission of guilt. I liked to think of myself as not the nail painting type. But I feel so drawn to do so, only because they're actually semi-long. And when I say semi-long, I mean essentially short- but long, considering I usually bite them off. Nails make delicious stress food.

Whenever there is a reference to ...biting toenails, or toejam, in movies or conversations- the universal cringe and shutter rolls around the room. Gross. Even grosser is when someone else is eating another person's toenail/toejam. Why are we so grossed out by toenail biting, but partial to finger nail biting? I think I am equally repulsed by the idea of biting off someone else's toenails/toejam, as I am to the idea of biting someone else's nails.

I love the name of nail polishes- its the most ridiculous thing in the world. But it completely illustrates the genius of marketing and the enormity of vanity. I dunno if I'd buy a colour called "Reddish Red", but I sure as shit know that I want "Sex Bomb" or "Atomic Fallout". ...hmm, Im going to start a line of nail colour with a Nuclear War theme. That should go over real well-


...what exactly is toe jam???

"I just wanted to ask you about a comment you made earlier, when you said that your work has changed. That its less conceptual, I was wondering if you could talk about that."

"Well, ...its age really. Its less about the intent, and all about the form. The body. I love working with clay because its essentially mud. its very sexy- very sensual. The feeling of clay in your hands."

"What brought on the shift from concept art?"

"I think that the mind goes before the libido. Im sure you know what I mean.."

And then they shared a very male laugh.

I've just finished a book. the second book I've read by a Brazilian, male author. Both times the subject is sex, the approach is prostitution. I don't know whether its a culture thing... I don't think its a male thing. But he wrote this book third person. I was so offended... a lot. More in the beginning than in the end. I hated the way he ...'portrayed' his female character. She was as cute and static as a 60s B movie. ...she was supposed to be energetic, impulsive, adventurous and naive. But the narrator rationalized her like an old, lecherous man. I learned more about the author than I did about the character. I also find it sinister that an omnipotent, clearly male narrator should expose sections of the protagonists 'diary'. (P.S. no one would write a diary the way he wrote it for her... bad bad bad). What does an old rich guy know about being a young, woman and a prostitute? I think anyone can write about anything, when they employ sensitivity and genuineness... but... he kept inserting his new age, feel good spiritual rational. I didn't like that.

In other news, its cold. its fall. my hands are so cold that my bones are cold. Nadine is cooking something greasy in the kitchen, and even that smells like autumn. My toes are like ice cubes clinging to an iceberg.

I've been meditating. I'm not taking any ones advice. I'm not necessarily following a prescribed 'this is how its done' formula. But I'm doing ...this thing. And I would call it meditating. And it feels good. I don't feel as irritable.

I think I will go to bed early.

My computer is teetering so dangerously near the edge of destruction that each time it boots up successfully (after numerous botched attempts) I praise some non-existent higher power. Purely out of superstition. I should be smart and back everything up. but it wouldn't be Russian roulette if I did that.

I am- of course, as usual procrastinating. Not writing that paper that is half written already. Out of laziness and shear terror. My summer feet dig their heals in.

I've been- ...forcing my friends to send me burnt cds with their music. Some do it gladly. Some treat it like rape and drag their feet. Anyway- I got two cds from Travis today. And based solely on his song choices, I think that we're soul mates. If he enjoys knit postcards of parasols then its fate. He put my favorite sigur ros song on there. My favorite Garbage song, favorite Metric song. Favorite Interpol song. ...not favorite Fischerspooner song, but a good one. Favorite tegan & sarah song- anyway. The point is that... the prerequisites for cds sent to me, are just- what people are listening to right now. Anything goes. Some people send me cds and ...whatever, they're good. Some send me great ones. But- everyone's cds are usually filled with songs I've never heard, by bands I don't know. And... its just bizarro to get a cd that... I would have made. To a t. ....T? tee? te?

I am in such a good mood today.

And! To top it, it was a rad day in the studio.

...now I just have to figure out what to say. What Im trying to say. I dont want to go on the usual "FEMENIST ART OF PORN = PORN IS BAD!!! BOO!". I dont think porn is bad. I mean, I don't think its good. But, there has always been porn/erotica. And there always will be. Its an essential expression of human sexuality. That just the way it is. ...ugh, I guess Im trying to articulate my experience with porn?? ...We'll see. This requires further meditation.
