I’ve noticed that as I’ve been developing this blog I’ve been talking about various things going on in the world and posting a Glamour Shots photo that sometimes matches what I’m talking about. I think I like that as a track to use. I’m also thinking of expanding this beyond the strict confines of Glamour Shots since there is a finite number of pictures available from them. I may have to start looking for Glamour Shots-like photos.
This lady obviously thinks it’s a good idea. Do you? Answers are open so reply away!
When I was looking around for photos this morning I came across this lovely example of a Glamour Shot done right.
Maybe it’s just me but I immediately thought that she looks like Dalbello, a second rate Canadian singer who had a couple of hit songs in the mid80s. I wouldn’t say I was a huge fan of hers back in the 80s but I have a feeling I’d totally be into her camp and over-the-top facial expressions and silly songs had they come out now.
For those of you who don’t know who Dalbello is here is an example of her musical and video genius. I was hoping to find a different video but couldn’t so this is second best!
I live in what was once a frigidly cold country with regular snowfalls. When I was younger we’d be lucky if it hadn’t snowed by Halloween. Now that climate change has taken over though there are years, like this one, where the first snow comes very late. Very very late. Like Nov. 30th late. For those of you who are seeing your first snowfall bundle up and keep warm; here’s an example what to do:
Don’t hate, peeps, but I’m low on pics to use and decided to take some time off. In that time a few new reblog pics popped up with you’ll see in the next couple of days and then I’ll hit my stash up to see what else I can do.
In the meantime, people, please send in any shots that you find or of yourselves. It’ll make things much more fun if I get some audience participation!
I’m firmly ensconsed in my new home now with things roughly where they belong and all so I can start posting again. I wish that I had a scanner so I could scan a portion of a college note I wrote to someone (I found a cache of these old notes and they’re pretty embarrassing). The part I want to highlight though says:
"PS You should get your pics taken. We’ll go to Glamour Shots. HAHAHA"
See, even when I was a young child in College I was obsessed with this place!
So packing is continuing on and moving is on Tuesday. Hopefully sometime next week I’ll be back to posting more regularly. In the meantime I went to see if anyone posted a shot of themselves and, thanks to heavymetalover now have this lovely kitty to share with everyone! Never mind that the cat looks like it’s high as a kit in its feathery love den.
Just a head’s up for everyone that I won’t be posting as much over the next few weeks as I’m moving into a new place with the other half. I’ll try to get some pics up when I can, for sure, but please don’t unfollow me because I’m not posting that much! Packing is such a pain in the ass. *sigh*
