Something Different

Tonight I can truthfully say that I’m sick of everything. Or rather, the same old everything.

I need something new to look at and fixate on.

I can’t take any more dumb idiots, dumb whores or dumb dummies. No more It girls or would-be It Girls. I need images and I need things to stimulate my imagination. I need things to hlep my brain work. I need things to hate but different things.

Here’s Martin Cohn, a boy who looks like a girl.

Here’s Gemma Banks, a girl who looks like a boy.

I realize that pictures of androgenous people are the only things I can stand to look at right now. I can’t figure out why, but I find them very relaxing.   Male models and homo’s. too. I’m deliberately using the word homo because a blog called Homo-something is about homo’s and the word “gay” now sounds condescending to me. If you’re a homo and you object, let me know.

Here’s another girl who looks like a boy.

See? Isn’t that more relaxing than looking at what some moron wore today? I found it at a blog with lots of nice images, whose author is either a boy or girl, I can’t tell from looking at him/her. You go, girl, or boy!

Oops, I found this there, too, so it’s not all androgeny there but also weirdness and some pervy stuff. That blog sent me to this one... where I liked this beautiful Asian-looking girl, or at least I assume it’s a girl.

There are some great images there and no one bothering you with their outfits or their Mom.

Okay, that’s it.   Who has some recommendations for me? Websites, books, music, anything to break the frozen sea within?

    Have you seen the swedish film Together (Tillsammans)? If you’ve seen it and hate it then ignore me – but that is my favourite little feel-good movie, it is set in the 70s and reminds me exactly of how it was (as opposed to how it usually turns up in movies or tv or whatever).

    It’s not dark or androgynous or anything gothy though, I don’t really get into that stuff.

  2. Kenita says:

    How about you try my blog. It’s not about clothing but about my photography and stimulating the mind to think. At least that’s what I hope people can gain from it.

    Taking a page from @skye, you should watch the movie the Doom Generation. So much leather and leather shorts it will make you moan in ecstasy 😀

    Sister Wolf I adore you, honestly I do. And I know exactly what you mean about not wanting to always read about daily outfit posts and RICH SNOBBY TEXAS ELITE WHO OF COURSE SPEND THEIR TIME ONLY TRYING TO PROCURE GOODIES ON EBAY. You don’t have the knack for being obscure at all. We know you, cause we read you!

    Love lots xoxo

    I recommend some music although I have no idea what you like. Never mind, check out The Slew, 6 turntables and a rhythm section. Most excellent. What about a book? The Wind-up Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi is some SF set in near future Thailand in a post oil, gene mutating, rising sea level dystopia. It’s dark and depressing, but I love that. Good then.

  4. Lala says:

    oh sister wolf, i came across a blog/website yesterday and immediately thought of you. it’s basically a collection of wannabe it-girls that whore themselves out in front of someone else’s camera……some “known” faces, some new faces, but all equally obnoxious. Would love to hear what you have to say…….

    If you weren’t the author of this blog, I’d send you here. It’s the only blog I read. Talk about elitist.

    Martin Cohn is a pretty thing, isn’t he.

  7. Can you adopt me please? Or at least just consider it? Ok great, thanks.

    Your blog makes my sister and I almost pee – we are both obsessed.

    You need to trust me on this one, just give them a chance or LOOK AWAY, they sound as good as they look bad. It’s a very special gender bending, but I can imagine that it’s visually just too much.

  9. Faux Fuchsia says:

    Ok listen to me carefully Sister Wolf: you need to embrace gardening.

    It teaches patience and is good for the soul. That’s all I’m saying.

  10. Dru says:

    Hmmmm. It might sound hackneyed by now, but I recommend The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, if you haven’t read that already. It soothes me a great deal when I’m angry with the world, to know that at least a girl in fictionland gets to take her pissed-offness out on the rest of the world. It also helps to not look at ‘fashion’ stuff, in such a mood.

  12. Of course I send you to the petit garcon’s blog if I hadn’t been slacking of late. The child is an amusing diversion. Today I sang along to a song in the car on the radio. He said to me ‘have you got a guitar’ ‘No’ I said. ‘Why are you singing then, don’t’. At 4 and a half I’m quite impressed at his put downs. He then went on to day that Cheryl Cole sounds a bit like Lady Gaga. I’m loving his music critique.

    no slacking now I need you blog to be the uber diversionary element in the blogging world.

  13. Roman says:

    Close your eyes, so you can see & yes, start reading so you can write about something else, perhaps something you love. Evolve Sister !

  14. Braindance says:

    Any novel by Francois Sagan, The Crinson Petal & The White by Michael Faber, any song by Nick Drake, the website Regretsy and a hot chocolate with rum in

    Shit, I should take my own advice, I am becoming one of those fucking assholes I used to laugh at from the car, a middle aged person who runs.in.the.rain, what a cunt.
    I am running away from my middle aged spread and depression, the fuckers aint gonna catch me, try as they might

  15. Aimee- WTF! says:

    wow, sister wolf.
    This is the largest amount of spam I’ve ever seen on your comments page. Congratulations! You’ve “made it” in the blog world!

    I agree though. You can only take hating on people so much before it gets boring and makes you hate yourself. I stopped reading blogs/looking at flickr for a bit, but did spend an inordinate time on cakewrecks.com on monday.

    But you like leather shorts. And to mock bad fashion. and fucked up poses.
    Here. Make fun of 90’s comic books as well: http://progressiveboink.com/archive/robliefeld.html
    Even if you never read them, or your son never read them, it’s still fun to make fun of Rob Liefeld. I am sure you remember the Levi’s commercial. There, I just mad it fashion-topical for you. 🙂

  16. Elaine says:

    daddylikey.blogspot.com
    contrary to the name of said blog, it does not have a pornographic stream of photos with young bloggers in poses where their mouths are open or in some kind of pout
    it does have a feature called don’t show-cha your choca in which rising hemlines are slandered which always puts me in a good mood

  17. patni says:

    Damn this is a spam fest!
    i have a bunch of suggestions. I also hate on everything and as aimee says sometimes i just need not to any more.

    To escape from the horrifyingly narcissistic world of the teen fashion blogs, may i suggest slash.
    the original is fo course, spock and kirk. may i suggest this

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PwpcUawjK0
    this one if you enjoy lady gaga is also excellent… many are not.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEghawKig_0&feature=fvw
    The world of slash is large and horrifying. Google bible slash and read some poorly written shit to make your very mind bleed.

    Aside from that i when i feel ennui, i like the food web sites. http://www.davidlebovitz.com/index.html

    and the perfume nerd sites, sadly the links to them are on my other computer.

    I also like to laugh at other peoples fetishes. fluffies? is that what they are called? that like to rent big teddy bear and fluffy costumes and have orgies are fun. They write some really really bad stories that can be laughed at.

    I would suggest my own blog, as it makes me laugh, but it started funny and angry, and may have ended up just the inner noodlings of my mind comprehensible to no one but me. and the barbie dolls who play me.

    I am also with faux fuchsia. gardening, or walking or bike riding.
    and i am very very glad to hear your son is on the mend.
    you make me laugh, and think and i love your blog.

  18. Dru says:

    If you had the patience and a taste for it, Sister, I’d direct you to the Temeraire series, some very nice novels about dragons acting as an air force in the Napoleonic wars, written by this lady: http://naominovik.livejournal.com. One of the major reasons why she warms the cockles of my misanthrope heart is because she started off as geekily (not the cool hipster geek way, the ‘omg what a freak I can’t believe you do this’ way, experienced firsthand by me) as imaginable- writing fan fiction. No joke.

    No porn, no fashion, and nearly all the human protagonists of the novels are past 30. If fantasy/dragons were ever your kind of thing, you will love these. You might even have a laugh.

  19. Dru says:

    patni- OMG, slash!!! I can’t believe you actually mentioned that- I was, once upon a time, a moderator on a fairly large Harry Potter discussion forum, and slash was one of our absolute no-nos when it came to allowing fics to be posted on our forum. I tuned out of the Harry/Snape ship about a decade ago…ah, memories.

  20. Bessie the Buddha cow says:

    I feel you SW! Firstly, I’m glad the Wolf child is healing and surgery was a success! Secondly, I love the photos you posted on today’s blog. I have no suggestions for books, songs, movies (though I will take Mark up on his suggestion for reading The Wind-up Girl). This is a good thing you’re going through, a growth spurt, questioning what has come before, no? Looking for something more, something personal, unusual, a heat to blast through the frozen sea? Keep looking, be bold, “Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” (Goethe).

  21. mutterhals says:

    Here is a palette cleanser for those of you sick and tired of the one woman whine-fest:

  22. erika says:

    I am also bored to death with most stuff so I am embarking upon the old fashioned life make-over thing. This is where I change my attitude, exercise habits, wardrobe, career choices…A sort of choose the life I want type thing.
    Maybe a good suggestion for you would be to try photographing your wardrobe and showing it off to us. That is time consuming or go on Polyvore and play grown up paperdolls http://www.polyvore.com/ . Or get off the internet and make something.
    I wish you luck with tis. I know the feeling, restlessness and boredom are good however, it is a symptom of the bud cracking forth from the pod. Bloom, Bloom!!

  23. erika says:

    BTW, WTF Is all of this spam ???

  24. HelOnWheels says:

    Hey, Mutters. How about you f*ck in the direction of off!! Peoples, do NOT go to Mutter Trolls blog. She’s a c*nt, and not in a good way.

    PS – I nominate mutters for C.O.W.

  25. Suspended says:

    This is the only blog I read regularly (as well as Colin McDowell’s, but he doesn’t update as often as you.)

    When I’m looking for something funny/unusual, these amuse me –
    A lady who loves acting like a drag queen –
    http://ladyfag.blogspot.com/

    Nonsensical camp British humour – http://mitziclutterfromthegutter.blogspot.com/

    Sometimes shocking, sometimes political, mostly drag fueled madness – http://blog.ladybunny.net/

    Why I’ve chosen you three uber-camp blogs, I do not know.

  26. Faux Fuchsia says:

    Pity you don’t live in Australia. There’s a doco on free to air tv tonight about the Stones and Exile in Main Street that you’d enjoy and would be a nice antidote to boredom.

  27. HelOnWheels says:

    Whenever I feel the same way as you do now, SW, I head over to:

    http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/

    It’s one of the few places on the interwebs that makes me yell “THIS. IS. FRACKIN’. AWESOME!!!!” (Using the old, original, correct definition of “awesome”!) Like this post:

    http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2010/05/12/rampaging-cannonball-star-is-rampaging/

    SCIENCE. IS. AWESOME!!

    Some other suggestions like Cakewrecks and taking up gardening have already been made. I could send you to my “blog,” chronicling the progress of my “garden”, a.k.a. containers of herbs & flowers & vegetables on my 7×10′ porch of a 2nd floor city apartment. But I’ll spare you the boredom.

  28. Cricket9 says:

    Dru, thanks for the S-F recommendation; will have to wait until the third “Girl who…” comes out in paperback, don’t have space for hardcovers, but it’s a very satisfying read. Used to read tons of “The Sentinel” slash once upon the time – I’m feeling nostalgic now.
    HelOnWheels, I looked and this really IS awesome, thanks!
    After looking at Halcohlic’s pictures and reading the endless litany of brand names and adoring remarks about her husband (yes yes, it’s so sweet that she’s in love) the one and only fashion-related blog I’m planning to continue reading is “Kingdom of Style”.
    Sister Wolf, Max is better, the frozen sea is going to melt soon, not to worry.
    BTW, Mutterhals is haunting the premises – why Mutterhals, why?!

  29. Andra says:

    So glad Max is going to be OK.
    Try The RealEstalker to see some wonderful and terrifying interior decoration and the result of too much money in the wrong hands.

  30. Alicia says:

    Ooh! I second ladyfag’s blog…because she is a lady who acts like a drag queen…and I love drag queens.

    I also like Regretsy in times like this. Nothing intellectual, but it’s all pretty funny. http://www.regretsy.com

  31. Ann says:

    Mutterhals, go away. You’re fucking lame. This “one woman whine-fest” is a very dear friend of mine and a million times the person you could ever hope to be. If you have such wrath towards her and her readers, why do you keep coming back? It’s pathetic, and transparently attention-seeking. Get help.

  32. Dru says:

    Cricket9- it is out in paperback, though it’s a fairly large paperback novel. Or maybe the US edition is different? (I have a UK one).

  33. Eliza says:

    I love how Mutterhals frequently insults us before requesting our devotion.

    http://rachaelgibson.co.uk/ isn’t a bad alternative to the fashion blogs. No outfit posts, for one, and she likes older rock bands in a genuine way.

    HelOnWheels, do you ever read http://twistedphysics.typepad.com/ – Cocktail Party Physics? Mostly a group of women writing about science, mathematics, and pop culture.

  34. Stella Mayfair says:

    yeah, regretsy! i LOVE that stuff! especially the view it in a room feature. snorted coffee all over the keyboard when i last visited.

  35. Cricket9 says:

    Dru, in Canada it’s a big fat hardcover, not good to read in a bathtub or on the bus. I’ll wait.

  36. HelOnWheels says:

    Eliza – Put that twisted physics blog in my favorites. It looks fantastic. I’ll go back and read it at home. Thank you so much!!

  37. Aja says:

    Damn Mutterhals strikes again. I thought she gave up and retreated . . . not so much, eh? Talk about desperation.

  38. Lezzies says:

    so, rather than “gay” or “homo”, I prefer queers. but hell, i can’t speak for us all.

    also, rupaul’s drag race is all about lady boys, and even though it’s not dark or gothy, it’s a hell of a lot of fun. you can find the whole first season on LOGO.

    love–

  40. Maria says:

    Mutterhals is just jealous. The only time there are more than 7 comments to any of her posts in the past 8 years are the ones that I (her arch enemy) have started.
