light



everybody needs it

edit: does anyone know where i can find a high resolution image of black acrylic / bronze with a few slightly jagged lines of congealed blood? is there like an abstract expressionist painting out there that has this texture?

this post makes me giggle, too.

what can i say ...

i'm gonna take it to the lowest common denominator! (not to say physical desire is an LCD)

i just have absolutely no time to post what i want to post lately.

this post makes me google (was going to say sizzle but we all know how corny that would have been).

on a related tangent, do eunuchs have phantom feelings of their member?

jean said...

or is a member unremembered?

sigh ... and i was going to write an entry on bush administration's wire-tapping the american public -- and little outcry. oh the irony.

andrea said...

i could prolly help you with the hunt for that high res image.

if i can't, i can at least give you pointers? let me know.

andrea said...

hah!

i think "physical desire IS an LCD"..
..for guys! no joke!

well, ok. plenty joke.

"makes me google"?
grosssssssssss!!!!

[google] equals [splooge] plus [sizzle]?

oh, boys will be boys.

andrea said...

yepp!

geez.

i understand...
i mean, i just think that it
hasn't been "blogging season" lately.
if that makes sense.

very-related to the Bush scandal
(in berkeley, we like to say:
"mm mm! Fuck Bush! spare change
for cunnilingus!".. no joke!)...

GOOGLE PLUS CHINA. stories
were reported in yesterday's paper,
either the n.y.t. or the s.f.c. ..

my housemate's a great guy because
he keeps his ears perked to the news.
hyper-perked.

water > light.

on that related tangent, eunuchs probably do. i mean, it depends on
how you look at it, eh?

this is where freud comes rolling
out of his grave.. from beneath the
dirt and into the bay area..
..rolling like a sausage..

anyway. you remind me of this Taschen-published book i saw at Moe's.. it's all about "aesthetic
surgery". grossest thing in the world,
this book. well, nearly. my housemate
& i were just talking about trans-sexual surgery on wednesday morning; wednesday evening comes, and PLOP: we end up in Moe's and start
flipping through this book.

you also remind me of ancient chinese eunuchs. i mean, the local asian-ethnic t.v. channels always love to broadcast "historical epic dramas"...
... in convenient half-hour dosages.

i was watching some of them with my parents over winter break. my dad loves to point things out to me, things that i might never guess about
ancient chinese people. one thing in particular: "that character? you see him? he portrays a eunuch!"

however, you stick this character in modern-day san francisco, and he seems like any old asian guy. i asked my dad, "what really distinguishes him as a eunuch?" and he told me that it was his high-pitched voice and slender frame.

what the fuck!!

i guess asian actors are scarce.

and my pop was more fixated on the story-line than anything else.
