the naked switch

September 30, 2019
Been thinking on two related quotes lately:
If you get the least bit bored,
just flick the nudity switch
and remember that everyone around you
could possibly get nude at any moment.
Bruce Hainley
The epigraph for "Schnick Schnack Schnuck", a German indie porn film - very women- and people-in-general- friendly relative to most porn, I'd say.
"Rach, ya know, I can see you naked any time I want."
"All I have to do is close my eyes. See? Woohoo!"
"Ross! Stop that!"
"Ah, I'm sorry."
"Come on! I don't want you thinking of me like that any more!"
"Uh, sorry. Nothing you can do about it. It's one of my, uh, rights as the ex-boyfriend. Oop... oh yeah!"
"Stop it, cut it out! Cut it out!"
"Okay, okay, I'm sorry, it will never happen... Uh-oh! Wait a minute! Wait... wait... now there are a hundred of you--and I'm the king."
Ross and Rachel from Friends (Season 3 Episode 21: "The One with a Chick and a Duck")
Been thinking about this lately. Is it ok to do that? It's interesting because if memory is mostly an act of reconstruction - as I believe it is - than the line between fantasy and memory - at least for our objective experience - is quite a bit blurred! Maybe it's fine to do so long as the people you are featuring in your naked imagings are never, ever aware of it. Which is why I'm posting this on my blog and not mirroring it on FB I guess...
Billie Ellish defying gravity on SNL - not bad for a live show. Besides the Fred Astaire and Lionel Richie references, it's also a call back to the SNL <SPOILER>Penn & Teller magic skit</SPOILER>...
For human kindness for people paid to interact with you, the jokes to avoid...
I remember once upon a time I was sort impressed with Giuliani? Like in his mayor of NYC days... yeah they made mussolini jokes about him, but there was that whole clean up of times square thing...

...but now...
I had a dream that the lil 7up dot was the KoolAid guy's son and I can't stop thinking about it
