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.

Whats up and whats been happening.

Well a few things have happened since my last post.  The flash on my Nikon D40 has died and i am not sure what to do about it at the moment.  Either i repair it, or I buy a external flash.  I like the idea of a external flash because i plan to get a multi-directional flash that will help keep the flash out of my subjects eyes and out of mirrors and windows, but still provide adequate light.  Yeah its a great idea and kind of cheap too since i have found a great Vivitar kit for a good affordable price. 

Now onto somewhat darker things.  I have had it with using friends and family as models.  Too much damn drama and being used like a chump.  I won’t go into too many details mainly because i don’t want to.  But suffice to say that each time I’ve used either friends or family as models they only model once and then i can’t get them to model again.  if they promise to model again they keep putting me off, begging for favors, or using the proposed modelling gig to get me help them but constantly reign on keeping their end of the bargain.  So for now, no more family and friends.  I just don’t need to be so pissed off and feel so used.  Life is hard enough as is.

And now about my Tumblr site.  I am trying to decide whether to keep it going or not.  Even though i have new pictures it may be months before I get anything else; plus i have this blog to keep posting pictures at.  I think i have figured out how to run this thing well enough that I can link the posts to my photography without messing it up.  But i haven’t logged into the site in months and i really don’t maintain anything there any more.  If you think i should keep the tumblr up then just say so in the comments beyond that there isn’t much else to say at the moment because I have other things to do.  I will be posting more pics of Cintra though.

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…

A vacation with my newborn nephew.

So on the 23rd of this month i went to Ohio with my parents to visit my brother and his wife.  My sister-in-law Joi had recently given birth to a 9 pound, 4 ounce baby boy named Grant.  He was actually a week late so he was nicknamed Turtle by his grandmothers.  ^_^

He’s a handsome kid, who likes to sleep, eat, poop, and then sleep some more.  I had a great time with my family and we made it back on Friday evening.  I have to admit i enjoyed holding Grant so much, and when he would open his eyes and look at us he would always have the almost bewildered look on his face as if he’s trying to figure out who we are and why we are there.  We are truly blessed to have this addition to our family.
