People are always (never) asking me how I fill the long hours between part-time jobs and flashes of inspiration. While I have lots of fake answers--important books, lengthy explorations of respected museums, Tibetan sand art--but the truth is usually YouTube.
I'm a restless sort, though, so I'm always pausing videos to grab some applesauce or check to see if anybody has left any comments on my website. I have an incredible knack for pausing at the least flattering moment. Of course, what am I to do but take a screenshot? I have scads of these, so I thought I'd share. Today's theme: blonde ladies (click on the images to link to the source videos).
Okay, so that last one was an intentional pause. I'm obsessed with Fritz Lang's Metropolis, especially this moment, when the virtuous heroine becomes the cruel robotic sex-fiend. I'm actually considering using this still as the cover of my next book (I might be able to break into the sci-fi and drag-queen markets). What do you think?
