Ephemera

The ramblings of a lunatic expat.

I am Californian who relocated to Melbourne, Australia in 2006..

I'm a manicurist and a madwoman and I do a damn good job at both.

Episode 22: Compromise with Mike Monteiro — The Nudge

indefensible:

One of the hardest things in design is knowing the right time to compromise, if there ever is one. The very idea of compromise might send some precious designers into fits.

That’s why we spoke to Mike Monteiro about this topic. The man has a reputation that makes him seem absolute about everything. So when is it ok for him to compromise?

Josh and Ross investigate that idea with Mike which leads into discussion of all sorts of design problems.

Oh look. An egg Easter-egg.

This was because I said I would get up and make coffee in 3 minutes. What a slave driver.

So @erinmargrethe got grumpy about my Instagram profile pic being clean-shaven and then I found the rudest picture of my head that I could and now she’s for some reason happy. Anyhow, women are complex.

Ask and you shall receive

i could masturbate to this article that’s how much it pleases me

everything about this screams fedora

oh my god this is fucking incredible oh my god

holy shit

and when you go to a restaurant and eat something cooked by man, that’s where another man put something inside your body that I didn’t. And when the male dentist looks inside your mouth, that’s where another man invaded your mouth. And when the male cashier sells you those clothes, every time you wear them you will think of him, not me.

don’t even get me STARTED on your gynecologist

If you ever want to read the whol article,it’s here. And it is as shitty as the abstract make it look like.

“I know I didn’t disrespect women with tats until I dated one. She also turned out to be quite the skank.” And there we go. Heart of the entire thing. Men are so immature it’s laughable -Ash

"a level of familiarity over you"
THIS JUST IN. TATTOOS ARE A METAPHORICAL VIRGINAL EXPERIENCE. 
what is this cap from??? I saw the link above, but what the hell is that forum even for?

I’m going to read this article before bed so I can have sex dreams about other women. 



Written by a guy who got dumped by a woman who happened to have tattoos, upon which he subsequently chose misdirected misogynistic vitriol over self-awareness and introspection. I’ll bet $100 that this is how the fedora fell over his eyes.

I also love how this assumes that all tattoo artists are men.

Oh, he addresses that. 
"Female tattooists are rare, and even if you do use one, it doesn’t illegitimate the next points."
This part is my favorite:
"Want to rebel? Want to demonstrate independence? Want to be edgy? Don’t get a tattoo and limit yourself to 2 earrings per lobe per ear. Now that’s daring these days. It’s like eating small portions when you’re handed a giant plate. It’s like going to the gym instead of watching TV when all of your friends are asking you if you followed the new episode of the Walking Dead."He’s right, it IS like all of these things! Except that it isn’t actually like any of them at all.

By this rationale I’ve fingered so many women. #manicurist
