Pussy. I'm really really good with my hands and a woman's vagina. I'm sure I'd be reasonably good with cock as well, being a sensual being, but I am frustratingly hetero.

In "Portland Meetup!"

I'm going to post this in here just in case anyone happens to read it. I'm doing something really cool in my cafe this week. Here's the excerpt from the press release. "The Equator Cafe is hosting a five day open source programming flashmob and we have chosen the GPL'd Democracy TV ( as our project. We are centrally located in Portland, OR, and are within immediate proximity to the Oregon Convention Center and OSCON 2006. Take a break in between sessions and come down to contribute code. The event will be filmed and compiled into a short video to be broadcast on Democracy TV at the end of the week. " If any monkeys read this and are in town, come and code. (:

I can't help feeling like the world of High Fashion is a neverending spiral of pompous self-importance and impenetrable self-reference. Eh? I know nothing about high fashion. The imagery in these pictures was fascinating, beautiful, and at times socially poignant. Thanks Tracicle, great post.
