Quite the year for Moonlight. I want to be serious by first stating that Moonlight was in fact a good movie. I get it, it’s suppose to be some artsy fartsy movie for “high-brow” culture. Well let me tell you, there’s nothing High Brow about me watching that movie in sweat pants on a Wednesday morning because I live like I’m unemployed. Moonlight although it wasn’t my favorite movie this year, was really good. There was a level of anxiety and curiosity that at least kept me going. I don’t know maybe its like a very gritty version of Degrassi If it focused on one person. One gay African American person in one of the roughest neighborhoods. It’s definitely worth a watch and delivers all the right messages about the stigmas of being a gay black person in America.
But if we’re being honest with our selves, that was not a Kiss Scene, It was a Hand Job scene. Like not an Over-The-Pants-Handjob scene. An aggressive, I’m gonna get in there and stroke his dick until completion Hand job scene. Yea I know it all started with a kiss. A very well delivered kiss between 2 guys, but in conversation at parties when you and someone share a conversation about Moonlight and you ask them about the scene, the conversation will go like this.
You: Hey what did you think about the scene?
Them: What scene?
You: You know, the kiss scene?
Them: Oh you mean the hand job on the beach scene.
You can’t defer to that scene and not think of it as a scene highlighted by a hand job, not some kiss. And for the sake of Chiron, you shouldn’t either. More happened on that night that brought him pure bliss. Guy was randomly called up and his first at bat after being confused about his sexuality hits a double. Shouldn’t reduce moments like that to just a best kiss. I get for the sake of culture you gotta have Moonlight winning that very prestigious MTV Movie & TV award and It honestly was the best Kiss Scene out of the group. But lets be clear about it and understand that if this were some alternate Zoolander award show where they have Slashies, it would be Best Handjob/Kiss scene and not the other way around.
DailyTimes- A new bizarre fashion trend suggests you may have been overlooking the ultimate clothing item, despite unwittingly bringing it home with you after every shopping trip. People are stripping naked and posting photos of themselves wearing nothing but a plastic bag, as part of the latest social media sensation in Taiwan. Men and women alike are thrilled with their latest garment, although the transparent bags leave absolutely nothing to the imagination. It is particularly ‘cool’ to be seen flaunting a grocery bag from convenience store 7-Eleven, which seems to be a popular brand among plastic bag fans. The near-naked posers make a true fashion statement by displaying the green logo across their bare chests with pride. The incredibly affordable hot look of this season is adaptable and chic – simply slip your arms through the plastic handles and go! Perhaps the Taiwanese trend setters took inspiration from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia in April. The St George New Generation models strutted down the catwalk with plastic bags over their heads which proved to be a polarising accessory.
This is something straight out of Mugatu’s Derelicte campaign. It is the fashion, the way of life inspired by the very homeless, the vagrants, the crack whores that make a wonderful city so unique. Fashions just a weird thing. Its not suppose to make sense i dont think. Just has to be absurd and weird and if the person is hot or not, it works. If you’re gonna try to pull off something so god damn insane like wearing a grocery bag you have to be hot off the bat. The only one of these that are hot is the 7 Eleven brunette one because it just looks like a white top. You can’t see the plastic crinkly creases, the logo is simple, and the person just looks like a cute asian chick and not a freak. The third chick is just not hot. If you’re not hot and have those bangs that make you look like a prude and not a beautiful face then just dont even bother to wear a plastic bag because it just makes you look like a boney lunatic. And dont even get me started with the guy in glasses. If there really was a hot chick who started the trend then the second that guy put on the plastic bag, he ended the trend. Last of all, is the pair at the bottom. The look works for them. Wanna know why? Because those are 2 actual homeless guys who sleep on a sheet of cardboard next to a dumpster. Some styles are just regional to a certain place. A bearded guy wearing heavy flannel and a Northface jacket doesn’t belong in the Caribbean, He belongs in the cold north. Well anyone rocking a grocery bag, belongs in no home, but near a dumpster begging for change.
