japonisme: SAY IT LOUD!

17 September 2010



(for those of you who do not live in this extremely odd country,you might want to know that the republican nominee for the us senate
for the state of delaware, is, quite vocally,

running on an anti-masturbation platform!
it is time for all self-pleasurers to come to the aid of their party!)

SHE BOPWe-hell-I see them every night in tight blue jeans--
In the pages of a blue boy magazine
Hey I've been thinking of a new sensation
I'm picking up--good vibration--
Oop--she bop--

Do I wanna go out with a lion's roar Huh, yea, I wanna go south n get me some more Hey, they say that a stitch in time saves nine They say I better stop--or I'll go blind

Oop--she bop--she bop

She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--she bop,
I hope He will understand
She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--she bop,
Oo--oo--she--do--she bop--she bop

(whistle along here)...

Hey, hey--they say I better get a chaperone
Because I can't stop messin' with the danger zone
No, I won't worry, and I won't fret--
Ain't no law against it yet--

Oop--she bop--she bop--

She bop--he bop--we bop...

back with a, er bang. Really, wtf happened on election day? Saw a mayoral candidate on TV who, if he were air-dropped in Afghanistan would fit right in with the Taliban. Abortion? No. Abortion after a rape? No. The baby can be adopted. Abortion after incest? No. The baby can be adopted. I wish the reporter had asked if a wife can leave a bad marriage. No. Cut off her ears & nose & leave for dead on a hill top. Makes me embarrassed to be a male (thank God I'm not a Republican male). An anti-masturbation campaign? Republican? No surprise there. Delaware? Not for lovers anymore, well, self-lovers. Well, I guess it goes to show how little is really going on there, though, I could go off on the raging stupidity of using sand that's different from the beach sand for beach reclamation. Can you say sudden drop offs & bone breaking shore-break?
Great imagery (I especially like the Leda image).
A word of wisdom to the neophyte wanker- while the minty smell & warming properties of Ben Gay might seem alluring- do not go there.

you again make me laugh out loud, evan.

whoopie goldberg just went on a long rant on tv's the view about how when she was a young hippy she'd tried essential oils down there. she agrees with your conclusion.

Poor Delaware! And this is hard to believe for someone from Europe...
Courbet is one of the greatest painters, in my opinion anyway!
And you are a funny lady.

darn -- i wrote a really long response and it's disappeared, so let me simply say thanks, and if i get the energy i'll try writing it again.

here's what i was going to say, before the ether ate my comment:

absolutely, sabine-- i think about that sometimes, how this must all sound wildly absurd to europeans. it sounds wildly absurd to me too. one progressive tv news commentator has even suggested that maybe it's actually all theater!

let me try to make this simple: the various trillionaires who are completely tied up with, and in charge of, the energy, insurance, and financial industries set up a phony protest group, named something like 'americans for freedom,' in the summer of '09. the trillionaires bussed the AFF around to town hall meetings where the representatives from those states would be and screaming hoards of these phony protesters, who had now decided to call themselves the 'tea party,' disrupted meetings throughout the summer.

what they were instructed to do, and what they did, was to yell throughout the whole meeting so nothing could get done. they had been fed a pack of lies, like that there would be death panels in the new healthcare program which would decide if you could live or die (ironic, since the insurance companies do that now), and they believed them.

and the "movement" just exploded. continuously exploited (often against their own personal interests) by the politicians who were cashing in (ie sarah palin, who has cashed in literally) and by the original instigators. the movement grew on the steam of absolute deceit.

besides the anti-masturbation candidate that has bubbled up from this teapot, there are the following, also no doubt baffling to anyone from another country:

brown people must carry papers so they can prove that they are here legally.
muslims should never again be allowed to come here at all.
the koran is evil.
no mosque should ever be built in the united states.
abortion should be banned, even if the woman got pregnant by rape or incest.
women should obey their men.
that obama is channeling the spirit of his dead african father.
instead of healthcare reform, people should just trade medical services for chickens.
and many many more.

the tenets are racist, sexist, bigoted, hateful and dishonest ones, but the candidates are getting a lot of headlines because either 1.) they are a hot babe, or 2.) they are just very very loud.

and we just shake our heads and watch msnbc and the daily show and wonder if the sideshow will become the main tent come november when the election is held. and if it does, what the heck would we do then?

We read about the tea party here in Europe, about Sarah Palin, etc... and we laugh a bit in disbelief, or should we cry? And to think that the US used to be a shining example of freedom, to us Europeans.
It's such a pity that the loud people over there never read a good newspaper, or watch a decent TV-channel...
Thanks for this very interesting response, didn't hear the rumour about Obama and the african spirits... My, my, who invents this stuff???

Picasso's late erotic prints were apparently much influenced by his collection of Japanese shunga, "spring-time prints." Now we just have to wait for the English-language version of the catalogue of the Barcelona show on Picasso's "secret images":
