San Diego Comic Con 2009

OK, I don’t read or follow comics, or know who most of these characters are, but I got a thing for weird women in tight costumes.  So I’m always happy when a new batch of photos from one of the comic conventions shows up on the net.  Weird Chicks Rule!!

Photos from Parka Blogs.

OK, pictures!!!

Bacon Bra. No comment needed.

Although I can’t decide if this is hot, or completely gross.

Manliness includes learning

Since I engaged in the suit-buying adventure recently, I was reading up on sartorial information.  In doing so, I found The Art of Manliness – and I think I dig these people.

Yes, we're men.  Men is what we are.

Yes, we're men. Men is what we are.

It looks like they’ve been reading up on many things we’ve posted around here, too.  Since most of us are unemployed, might as well Become a Renaissance Man Without Spending a Dime.

How to let some dork with a computer remove your soul

Sometime a few weeks ago I opened a bunch of tabs about photo retouching.  Now that I’ve finally gotten around to reading them, I’m appalled.  Yes, everyone already knows that photos aren’t real, blah blah blah.  Whatever.  I’m appalled at how retouching not only corrects colour, improves contrast, maybe even removes a blemish here or there (hell I was more than happy to have my pimples removed for my high school senior picture I assure you), but removes all the character from people who are already beautiful.

Why bother?

Why bother?

from NYphotographics, who have some of the most minimal retouches I found – most of which I think are almost entirely unnecessary.  It only goes downhill from there.  For example, evidently Mason Marconi needed more booty.  What????  Yeah.  And this beautiful lady was evidently not good enough.  *sigh*.

I can’t even think of a way to discourage this, either.  Some people say “don’t buy any media that contains this” as it’s seen as a pull from customers – which is true in part.  However, in actual fact essentially every product advertises with heavily retouched photos, and since a purchase is almost never traceable to an advert it is likely that any purchase will be construed as having been created by said advert.

Maybe I should build a shack.  In Montana.  And write a manifesto. *sigh*

Good Lord What Were People On In The Seventies?!?!

Designers designed these things.  Actresses wore them.  TV viewers accepted it as normal!  Crazy!

Charlie's Angels

Charlie's Angels

Yes, in fact, I do

I do like the Pet Shop Boys.  Yes, I was born in the early 70s.  Yes, I grew up in the home of techno.  Keep off my back about it.

Anyway, you can watch their vids in HD on youtube!  Totally awesome!

Sin tends to rock. No you freaks, I’m not talking about opposite over hypotenuse.

Tuscan This!

I’m getting really tired of Tuscan food.  EVERYTHING is Tuscan lately, even cat food.  It seems like you people would eat ANYTHING if it was prefixed with the word Tuscan.  Bon Appetit!
