OliviaB, see? Nice one.
LIKE A WHEEL WITHIN A WHEEL
I feel I am numbing down. It is as if it has been months since I wrote anything original. The windmills of my mind haven't been catching much wind, seems like. I just caught myself recycling older posts, which is fine to a degree, I think, because they are worthwhile posts left to rot in the backwaters of my StumbleUpon reviews where no one ever goes anymore. And it helps me arrange my thoughts. However, sometimes it is the consequence of pure idleness and I simply can't be bothered to write something new. Taking the shortcut as it were. And that is always a bad thing.
I almost start to feel like middle age is creeping up on me. Wake me up, seekers.
FOOLS FOR FUR
Ah, but you see, that just isn't true. I've seen some beautiful people wearing fur and also some decidedly ugly furry animals. I think if you make a slogan, you should at least be accurate. Or at the very least try to make some sense. And don't -DON'T- give me the old "ah, but you know what we mean," because that is just lazy. Sometimes you have a slogan which sounds catchy and clever, but when you really think about it, it just isn't. In which case you should abandon it and decide to do something better.
Don't get me wrong though, because some of you have the tendency to do so. I am not saying here that I am in favour of the use of animal fur in clothes, because I completely agree with Alec Baldwin who (not quite very eloquently either, I hasten to add) said: "fur to me is a bunch of misguided people who feel that something beautiful is something they need to possess."
I am sure that he didn't actually mean to say that the outer layer of animal skin was made of misguided people and since he wasn't proposing it as a slogan I would be the last to order him to be more precise in his utterances.
It had been quite a while since I last used Gnod.net and I admit I wondered if it even existed anymore, but it did. Tired of the music on my phone that doubles as an mp3 player I decided to give gnoosic a run for its money. Entry one: The Baseballs. Entry two: The Drapers. Entry three, the wildcard: The Doors. Where on earth the algorythm got "Zaz" remains a mystery to me. But I like it. A lot.
I like my stumblers opinionated. If they are funny. Mayamoi effortlessly brings the voice of reason to his posts, doesn't eschew sarcasm and delivers some good images. Follow: check.
I don't have a solution, but I admire the problem.
Now I get it.
