Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I’m getting married next Saturday, and I could use some advice in choosing my bridal gown.
Sure. Congratulations on the happy event! In selecting your gown, you should think about what message you want to send to your gathered loved ones, because that’s what the perfect wedding dress does.
You know, something like “I’m so happy to be joining my beloved soul mate on this life journey…”
But put it in your own words, of course. What’s the message YOU want to send?
As a blogger who watches stupid fashions all over the world, I’ve always been happy about one thing. No matter how dumb an outfit is, I only have to see it once.
Until this week, that is. Spotting the outfit on the left, from New York, I set it aside to think of a way to express my contempt. Four days later I’m looking at photos from Madrid, and THERE IT IS AGAIN!
Okay, Dr., uh, Smith, let me see if I understand what you’re saying here.
You’re telling me that you can breed fashion models that are part human and part animal, so they can show our new designs but we don’t have to pay them? Is that it?
Do they look pretty presentable, all things considered? Antlers AND fur? I guess nobody’s perfect.
Blog Guy, I was intrigued by your post about models having to get “instructions” before fashion shows. Were you able to learn anything more about what they were being told?
No, but I have learned more about how important it is to motivate folks just before a big event.
Somebody needs to help me out with this one. We have TWO photos purporting to show fashion models “listening to instructions” before presenting creations at a fashion show.
I can buy a team of surgeons getting final instructions before creating the Six Million Dollar Man, but what kind of instructions do models need to hear?
Blog Guy, am I missing something? It’s the middle of February, and you haven’t posted any new Victoria’s Secret photos. Just warmed-over stuff from 2009. What’s up?
That’s what I’m trying to find out, stranger. I have some shots from a recent New York City event, but they are confusing and vaguely disturbing.
Readers often say to me, “Bob, in your line of work you must meet lots of interesting people,” and I say to them, “No, not really.”
In fact, I tend to keep an up-to-date list of folks I DON’T want to meet, under any circumstances. It changes often, but right now these are the LAST five people on earth I want to see.
The traffic statistics are in for January, the first month of the new, slightly more educational, grown-up version of this blog, and clearly readers are coming along for the ride.
