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.

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

The Cabazon Dinosaurs: A Surprise in the Desert

For more photos of Dinny and Mr. Rex, explore the Cabazon Dinosaurs location page.

For any adventurous road-tripper making the 157-kilometer (97.5-mile) drive between Los Angeles and Palm Springs, California, there are three surefire signs that you’re on your way: vast expanses of desert, fields of industrial windmills—and dinosaurs.

Dinny the Dinosaur and her companion, Mr. Rex, tower over the horizon of Cabazon, California. The pair were created by sculptor Claude K. Belle as a roadside wonder to attract customers to his Wheel Inn Restaurant located beneath their feet. Belle led the project without the help of external companies, opting instead to work with a few friends to complete his vision.

Dinny, an Apatosaurus, came first in 1981, built from salvaged interstate materials over the course of 11 years. In all, she measures 46 meters (150 feet) in length and stretches 14 meters (45 feet) into the sky. Mr. Rex, who is slightly taller at 20 meters (65 feet) came next in 1986. Made from concrete and steel, both dinosaurs weigh more than 100 tons each.

In addition to their photogenic exteriors, the dinos were designed as hollow structures that visitors can explore. Dinny’s belly contains a gift shop and adventurous Instagrammers can scale Mr. Rex for a shot of the desert horizon through the Tyrannosaurus’s mouth.

I want to go to there.

It really pisses me off that this is owned by creationists now and the entire gift shop is full of creationist/intelligent design propaganda. When Clem and I went a couple of years ago, it was the first time I’d been there in about 25 years. I was horrified. Almost every photo is me flipping the bird at the signs telling how dinosaurs died in a “giant flood”. Ugh.
