In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

NSFW Linkage

Michael Blowhard writes:

Dear Blowhards --

Enough with the Olympian tone! Enough with the detached culture-observing! Time to share where my mind's really at.

* If I could pass just one law, it'd be one that would require all girls to study bellydancing from 9th grade right through college. We'd all inhabit such a happier world ...

* This is emphatically not a kink that would have occurred to me independently. (Link deactivated at the request of the kinky site's webmistress.)

* Nor this one.

* I think I remember majoring in this subject my freshman year in college. Hard to remember through all the funny-smelling smoke, though ...

* Why am I feeling a sudden desire to become a film director? Oh, it's because then girls like this one would be begging me for roles in my movies.

Best,

Michael

Probably it's time you turned to celery-hurling.

The "leave your hat on girl" completely missed the point of the lyric: "shake-em."

Oh well.

michael,

1) she thinks a shirt is a "dress"

2) she has a face made for radio

Michael,

While I can appreciate your amusement at the BDSM kinks illustrated on my blog, I am concerned your link is bringing underage viewers to my site. Could I possibly request you de-active the link (my preference, to be honest, as my blog is for my own group of friends) or at least make clear via an edit to this post that my blog is an adult site with strong BDSM illustrative content.

With many thanks and all best wishes,
Ms160

Done.

Michael,

Just out of curiosity, what do you think the chances are that you have any underage readers?

Posted by: CyndiF on March 27, 2007 11:22 AM



Very low. And I suspect that the underage these days (and especially the underage with broadband connections) have pretty much an infinite number of other easy conduits to naughty material ...
