Out Like A What? March 30, 2014Posted by voolavex in Social Issues.
Waiting for March 2014 to leave tomorrow and realize I spend lots of bon mots on FB. Opinions that should rightly be here. And owing to laziness and lack of energy ( that is another term for laziness) I have left poor Voolavex to its own devices. Having none so it sits.
Is it the most fabulous blog written? For me yes because I am an unabashed fan of my own writing style. It flops at times but not in a way that cannot be fixed – editors have told me this and I believe them because they are editors after all. With that in mind I shall return to these eldritch pages and be more productive. Hits would be helpful. Writers are serious egotists and they do love positive (and even negative) input.
Things that Voolavex me:
Icon. Please let it be a nice illuminated portrait of Byzantine saint or the Lord or his mother. Nothing else. It usually takes eons to achieve the position of icon. Justin Bieber is not nor will he ever be one.
Signature style. Boring. It ended for me with Diana Vreeland’s wonderful t-straps and those hideous Chanel cuffs Carrie Donovan wore. Audrey Hepburn had it and some truly do wear their personalities – but damn. Everyone writes differently and therefore each style is a signature. Let it be so. (this includes other things like “brand”,”iconic style”, “trademark look”.)
Breaking News. Usually it isn’t actually “news”.
Imported. Now a euphemistic term for “Made in China”. Beware this word when spending more than $10 on anything.
Pet Rescue Groups. Used to be real and very good at helping animals. Now the purview of sad folks who also like money and judging other people’s lifestyles. I support Best Friends for the most part because they do exactly what they say – they work to Save Them All.
Lawd I haven’t done this in ages so I will post it and then take up the screed betimes. If you like it – please do. And then check in again.
