- I just shot a set with my friend Sarah. (She's Sawa on Suicide Girls.)
Oh yeah? What was it like?
-It was all creamy and sun dappled and autumnal. I had nice shoes on.
Autumnal with tits or autumnal without tits?
-With tits of course!
What do you think do you this economy?
-It sucks. That's what I think.
According to economists we are technically no longer in a recession.
-Oh really? Tell that to the strippers.
I will gladly tell that to the strippers--bring them over here and I will tell them.
-They will rejoice....eventually....whenever it is they can tell we're no longer in a recession. I doubt it will be soon.
What else is going on Mandy?
-I'm flying to NYC the day after tomorrow. For an art show opening and some photoshoots and hopefully D&D with the "Yale friends".
Do they all talk about nuclear physics and rocket science?
-No they talk/argue about art a lot. And laugh at seemingly mundane things which are actually crazy insane things but most people don't notice or care.
What's an argument about art that they've had?
-It's usually someone says they like some artist's work and then someone else says that's weird and stupid and "why".
Are they witty and urbane like Stewie and Brian on Family Guy?
-Yes--they are like that.
So you wanna hang out with a talking dog and a baby with a football for a head?
If you had to go out with Brian or Stewie which one would you go out with?
-Ew....Brain 'cause he's not gay and I like guys who will fuck me.
So you would have sex with a dog rather than a person?
No. Brian isn't a real dog he's a cartoon. The other choice is a baby who's gay. Really?
I think Stewie is bi, or what they call in psychology polymorphous perverse.
-Bi? Oh well then Stewie obviously. 'Cause he's not an alcoholic dog and I prefer sober creatures most of the time.
What about Peter?
What if it was the law, like Barack Obama said "Mandy must have sex with Peter Griffin. This will benefit all Americans, not merely the wealthiest among us"?
-Seeing as how I'm not American I don't give a fuck about what Obama thinks will benefit all Americans...if he's talking about having sex with an obese, lewd, immature, idiotic cartoon man.
What if he said that if you don't the terrorist win?
-I don't think anyone even knows what that would mean---not even the terrorists. Besides, those terrorists don't hate Canadians as much.
Well of course not they don't have as many freedoms and terrorists hate freedoms.
-I think Canadians have more freedom in many ways due to societal infrastructure and stuff, but hey if they think we have less hateful freedoms then maybe we'll get along better.
Yeah you should probably keep pretending that you have less freedoms.
-Yup. Hey did you know everyone I know got pets this year? EVERYONE. And two of my friends got engaged as well. Weird, everyone is growing up or something.
Pets hate our freedoms.
They're all like "Oh you can't go out 'cause you have to take care of me tonight." "Oh you gotta go to work so you can afford to buy me food." "Hey stop doing that and take me to have my worms removed.""Hey stop having sex 'cause I'm watching and I'm a dog and it's weird."
-I don't really care if my dog is around when I'm having sex. He's just a dog he doesn't care.
He hates your freedoms that's the important part. Plus what if your dog was Brian from Family Guy?
-Do you think Brian hates your freedoms?
Maybe, he's racist.
-Oh yeah I forgot about that---now I really don't want to fuck him.
Ok people who read my blog--I want to know if any of you have read the article about feminism in the latest issue of Harper's. (Well I think it's latest issues--it's in the other room--'cause it's the last one mailed to me.) If so, what did you think? I was slightly offended by it--but I'm not going to write much about that now.
Have you ever read anything else Susan Faludi?
-I don't know. I should pay more attention to who's writing what I read I suppose.
I liked her book Backlash. She provided a lot of evidence to back up what she was saying with things like, about how TV networks pulled shows that were doing well off the air just because the female characters made the execs uncomfortable. There were detailed interviews of facts and shit. What was the thing you read about?
-I actually really liked most of the content of the article which is about the division in feminist theories between 2ond wave and 3rd wave and "new" wave feminism and about materialism and capitalism and there's some brief history of feminism in there as well. What I didn't like was how at the end she seemed emotional and condescending. It got a bit too personal.
Well you know how women are.
-Yeah unfortunately I do.
So what did she say exactly that bothered you?
-She seems to think that young feminists and their ideas and means of expressing themselves are "infantile" and "weightless" and "ahistorical"and essentially frivolous and useless. Which I think is kind of silly and dismissive and condescending.
So basically she's accusing younger feminists of being exactly what sexist men think women are like?
-Hmm. I don't know if I'd put it that way.
Well that is what they'd say. She sounds like she's just being like "Hey kids get off my lawn."
-That's what the article is about though, this schism in feminism.
And she joins in.
-Yes and the end of the article she does.
So she's describing a problem of which she is a part?
-Yes. That's what I meant when I said it got too personal. She made her own feelings on the subject obvious.
You should invite her over so you could talk about it.
-I doubt she'd want to talk to me.
-I'm not an academic for one thing, I'm not educated (well traditionally), I'm not a writer, I'm not involved in any feminist organizations, and I'm a nude model, stripper (sometimes) and I've done some porn. I'm 26. I'm the last kind of female she'd want to discuss this with.
