Paper and Kim Kardashian and whores.

Lets just face this fact first.  The recent photo shoot of Kim Kardashian isn’t about Kim and her ass, its about the magazine called Paper, who I’m willing to bet that other then myself no one knew about outside of the New York City.  The Kardashian shoot was the first I had ever heard of this magazine.  So it is obvious that Paper is trying to keep itself relevant and they have done a great job by posting a semi-nude spread of one of Generation Y’s favorite whores.

I came upon this revelation as i looked at a variety of these pictures and the comments.  Quite literally every American generation and every American Decade going back to the 50’s and maybe even the 40’s had their own whore.  A woman who defied conventional stereotypes of women and how they should behave by acting sexy or being very sexual.  Madonna and Ally McBeal were the ‘whores’ of my generation and now Gen Y has a slew of them; Miley Cyrus, Brittany Spears and so on.  Hell we’ve even divided them by race, with Nicki Minaji as Black Gen Y’s ‘whore/slut’.  They all have the same MO though, show as much flesh, talk about having as much sex, and create as much controversy as possible.  And while we revile, marvel, and lust after them one thing will never change, they are all doing it for money, not for a cause, which is what makes them what I call them, whores, not icons of the cause of femininity or  female sexuality.

 

P.S.  The picture of the black female in the same pose as Kim is actually the original idea for the pose that Kim is doing.  The pictures was taken back in 1985-86.  And the photographer of Kim just rehashed his masterpiece with Kim for this shoot.

Okay i have to admit the reason I’m reblogging this is because i found it funny. Also as a gamer and nudist i found it to be interesting.

I’ve not been contributing much lately. If you’re an SL regular, you’ll know that feeling. Sometimes RL simply swamps you. And ‘swamp’ is an appropriate word!

You might have read Ella’s postings on the storms that have battered the UK in recent weeks. I was ‘victim’ to them, although I thankfully got off much lighter than many others. Our garage, set on the hill to the side of our house, was flooded, and we did lose electricity to our house for several days and some of our ‘white goods’ (our freezer, washing machine and tumble drier) were all lost to the water, alongside much of the remainder of the contents of the garage…lawnmower, etc.

Anyway, life goes on.

The house is largely back to normal now, and SL time can return 🙂 Hoorah!

The only ‘upside’ to the flooding around us (we’ve not been affected this last, awful week) is…

What am i missing?

DAMNIT!!  As i write this i find myself quietly trying to contain the anger I have at myself.  I still can’t figure out what I’m missing, but i think I’m close.  The pictures posted above are from a tumbler called p0ire.   I’ve looked at his work over the last year and had such jealously in my heart.  His pictures always seemed to be better then mine and i was frustrated because i felt i couldn’t achieve what he had.  Looking at some of the newest pictures that he posted today i get the feeling that I now know what I was missing.  It’s hard to describe, but it has something to do with the models themselves and the pictures.  The pictures are in black and white and look as if they were taken with some old camera and then scanned.  But there is such beauty and art in them.  I’m sure I’m missing something.  I’m so close i can smell it!  I’m so frustrated…if only i could find what it is and put it into words.

It begins!!!! IT BEGINS!!!!

Yes i have started my tumblr!  As we speak i am adding photos to it!

So go here and look at my photo greatness!  If the link doesn’t work try this then!  http://valisshaw.tumblr.com/

And one final note.  There will be non-nudes as well!

 

P.S.  I had to update the links.  Apparently tumblr gives me a different address because of cookies, while others have to use a different address

tumblr and some thoughts

Well I’ll be posting this on both blogs.  Whats going on is that I’ve noticed several of the people i follow also have a tumblr.  It seems that tumblr is a great, simple way to post your photographs and art without too much hassle.  I am seriously thinking of doing this so my art can get more exposure.  But i am worried about people stealing my art for porn purposes.  Also i have been thinking about doing more sensual and maybe even erotic photography.  The reason for this is because I’m beginning to see that some of my hang-ups are more along the lines of arrogance and fear, more then actual artistic stubbornness.  I’ll think about it some more before i do.  But what i really want is some feedback from others on this.
