Fashion Silliness


This is a guest post by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome!
Why do women wear jeans with tears in them?  I am at a loss to understand this fashion style.  Do the women want to look like they stole their boyfriends’ jeans after he accidentally tore them while building a skyscraper?  A modern day Potlatch where the women want to make a statement of how rich they are where they can buy expensive jeans then tear them up? Are women so warm in their jeans that they need cooling vents?

I saw a pair of jeans that had such clean tears that could only have been made by a scissors.  That moves the style from tears in jeans to cut-outs in jeans.  Is there a fashion difference between tears and cuts-outs?  Tears look accidental while cut-outs says, “yeah, I did this!”

What if this cut-out trend were to progress further?  Create enough cuts-outs in the jeans and there would be no more material left of the jeans except for a waist band.  The jean waist band would look strange, like a jeans belt with its own loops.  I would not want any woman I know to wear that because all she would have on is a jeans belt on her hips and nothing else but exposed undies below it.
Hip Hugger jeans, oh, excuse me, Low Riser jeans are just embarrassing.  We get to see an excess of muffin tops.  I just love that … muffin tops.  Sounds a lot better than spare tire around the middle.  We get to see the tops of the thong undies. This view has the glorious name of Whale Tail. If not undies then we get to see their butt cleavage.  Must be a fashionable name for that view.   Imagine getting to see all three views at the same time.  I once saw the tail end of a feminine pad exposed out the butt cleavage of a woman in Low Riser jeans.  How embarrassing.

 Fashion can be so silly.

Memoir - The Year of Kent State

by The Urban Blabbermouth
I wanted to write a fictional memoir and it got away from me. 

I was born in the Year of Kent State. I didn't know. I was watching a cable channel specializing in historical programs, in this case, newsworthy events from the 1970s. The Ohio National Guard shot 13 unarmed students protesting the Vietnam War on the Kent State University campus. Four students died. By the time I was aware of a bigger world than my own, Kent State passed into history.

Im gonna git u Sukkah

by The Urban Blabbermouth [who may or may not be shown in the photo above... - v-E] ~ True story. I am walking to my car and I notice a couple of Jewish fellows, twenty somethings, with the bouquets of what looks like bamboo or palm. I know they are Jewish for they look Hasidic. They are wearing long black jackets, wide brim black fedora hats, and have curly sideburns. In truth, I classify all Jewish who dress like this as Hasidic although they may identify themselves differently. They are standing near the corner canvassing passersby.

Climbing to New Heights

by The Urban Blabbermouth
It started when I was ten.  I was riding shotgun with my father when a small plane crossed the highway in front of us.  The plane floated gently to its landing, like it had all the time in the world.  It was beautiful.  I knew then I wanted to be a pilot.  

I dreamed of soaring with the clouds and flying through them.  I could go anywhere the crow flies.  No stuck in traffic following a road as laid out by some anonymous engineer.  I could fly with the birds, although, I never thought myself a bird.  I loved the freedom.

But, I fear heights.  

It's not just any heights, it's low heights, the kind you get with stairs, balconies, bridges, and landing airplanes.  When I fly on airlines as a passenger, I look out the window at thirty thousand feet, no fear.  Somewhere between six feet, my height, and thirty thousand feet, airplane's height, lives my fear, a mysterious feeling that emerges from my stomach and rises up into my chest.  I can't…
