i love the goodwill on capital circle northeast, and they have half off all clothes on mondays! also plato's closet is ok near ocala publix. it's great for basics like jeans but otherwise kind of overpriced and overtrendy. what ius an SnB?? I hear we have one now?
have been away from this forum for a long while, just now reading it again. i live off cap. circ ne near the hospital, work as a server at nino's, and have a 14 month old son. email me,ya'll; let's meet up! email@example.com
ok, so....... has anyone actually tried these methods? i searched for and found this thread, desperate for a way to soften and fade my many cool random goodwill tees. they have great graphics, perfect fit, but they all feel way too stiff. they already look vintage enough for me, i am all about the feel. i was careful to get 50/50 blend. i remmeber that show on style, and that the guy said the point was to get rid of all the cotton fibers. anyway..... if anyone's tried ANY of these many methods on their shirts and had a postive experience, please, oh please, i beg of thee, post a pic or 2!!!
even better, a sexy, talented male musician doing his thang. i think it has to do with the fact that i need to assign him some kind of personality to feel attracted, even at a completely basic level.
Right. I agree with you there.
So why is it ok to objectify women, then??
it's ok to objectify women for the same reason it's ok to objectify men: they make very pretty objects. i meant that i personally am not sexually aroused by solely a representation of a nude form. i definitely didn't mean to attach any negative judgement to objectification in general; i happen to be a feminist fan and supporter of the entire sex industry as well as all sex between consenting adults, which definitely includes porn and nekkid pictures. i feel that women who think 'objectification' of the female form automatically somehow hurts or lessens the value of our entire gender are totally misguided. i mean, i have bettie page magnets on my fridge and vintage vargas pinup girls in m bedroom; i adore and identify with these versions of womanhood. not only does that not diminish the intellectual sides of myself, i feel it enhances them. why just be a smart, interesting, and opinionated mind when you can also be a sexy and fabulous body, or 'object'? avoiding objectification because it is politically incorrect would only hurt us.
brae_day had an excellent point too....men and women are totally different, and there's no point pretending that men and women will ever be equal, especially in terms of physical beauty and sexuality. isn't it awesome that we don't have to deal with that whole homophobia thing the way most men do?
P.S. is this something you can copywrite? If so, I'd get on that pretty quick, you just might be going places with this!
! good call brae... annette, this idea is up there with refrigerator poetry and paper-doll-dress-up venus and david. it's kitsch-art in it's highest, most beautiful form; throw in interactivity, and this product would be completely at home in hundreds of stores i can think of. i applaud your creativity, and wish you the best of luck on the financial end!!!!
i have to amend my earlier point regarding the female vs. the male.... i do agree the nude male form is beautiful. i appreciate a well-muscled calf or a broad, smoothly chiseled back (mmmmmm......) as much as the next girl. but for some reason, and i honestly can't figure why, pictures or statues of nude men to me, while artistically beautiful, seem only homoerotic as porn. i honestly could never imagine myself feeling aroused by a picture of a hot nude guy or a stripper or anything like that. much more effective (for me, anyway) are the male models of polo or diesel ads, or even better, a sexy, talented male musician doing his thang. i think it has to do with the fact that i need to assign him some kind of personality to feel attracted, even at a completely basic level. a completely naked, posed male, devoid of expression, purely as a visual=beautiful, maybe, but not sexy.
i have to agree, as a 99% heterosexual chick, i still prefer the female nekkid (at least aesthetically) to the male. i mean, my husband looks hot in just jeans, or boxers, but the full monty is best reserved for when i'm actually interacting with his equipment, otherwise, it's just either like, flapping around, or else it's all huge and obscene! women, on the other hand, are all smooth curves, and as amazing to the eye as a brand new corvette. bring on the naked ladies!
oooohhh, did i sound like a stalker? how embarassing....i was truly overcome with emotion over such a cheap, easy, doable project that looked so good! i am very new to the site, altho not to crafting, but had never before heard of such glorious things as pillowcase skirts and t-shirt surgery. anyway, i assure you i am not insane, at least not dangerously, and, uh, just ignore that campsite on your front lawn.............
