45 years of accumulation -- musical finds, ephemera, soul searching, hilarity ensuing random thoughts.
One more thing to worry about --That Your Hands Smell Like Lard!
Oh good, so now she smells sexy like his sister?
FROSTILLA? Its like a cross between frosting and Godzilla. I don't think this name would fly today...Gary Airedale
Actually, Frostilla would be a great name for punk hair highlights.I can see the label now, featuring the Bride of Frankenstein. It'd fly off the shelves.
Frostilla girl, get your ass over here!
I'd love it if she were "frank enough" to tell him he had the smallest dick of any guy in the room.Honestly, what was it about those old ads that the men took such license to be rude and obnoxious to women under the auspices of "frankness?" No wonder women hate us so much now!
Old ads? Have you been to Fark or Something Awful recently? The misogyny and hatred oozes from every thread. Every mother is an idiot. Every breasfeeding mother is a filthy whore (seriously: I've read comments like "if she thinks it's so natural to breastfeed in public she won't mind if I (redact) all over her face in public, since that's natural too"). Women over 40 are all lazy, fat, stupid, and do nothing all day but watch Oprah and eat Cheetos. Women deserve to make less because they're less intelligent and less capable than men. Women who divorce men are "taking their stuff", even if the guy spent all his money on Nintendo and she paid the mortgage. And on and on.There are thousands upon thousands upon thousands of these comments made by tens of thousands of college-aged guys. It's really opened my eyes to how hateful young men are and how little they know of women.
Internet stupidity is, sadly, a mainstay of what passes for our culture. But I was talking about the "institutionalized misogyny" portrayed in these ads--not just by vulgar, porn-watching "college aged" guys (who are stupid in person and even more so online), but even by older professional men who were being held up then as "paragons" of virtue and kindness.And as far as the young men of today being ignorant of women, that's sadly true--so perhaps society should stop pressuring its young women to marry them.
