American Beauty

A combination of delayed first flights and early connecting flights forced me to cancel for the weekend (my scale thanks me, but my social life is shaking its head in frustration). I purloined this from a friend's blog...the magic of Photoshop, no? It sort of makes you wonder what models and actresses really look like before the airbrushing, but it's also a pretty sobering look at what it takes to be "beautiful", and how incredibly hard it would be for some to get there.

Potentially NSFW, if women wearing negligees fall under that category for you. Also, loud, loud techno music blares when you click, so have your Ecstacy and glo-stick already in hand, please.



EDIT: The song is actually "Bootylicious" by Destiny's Child, as roz was very nice to point out. I guess I have the same reaction to the introduction that song as I do to "Sound the Alarm", which means I body slam my speakers until it's muffled, even though I like the actual song part of both of those a lot.

Wow, that was great. I hope you don't mind, but I would like to send it to a couple of friends. Thanks for sharing, really made me think - wowow...

BTW, that song is Bootylicious from Destiny's Child so doesn't really count as techno :-D But the video was awesome. Strange how they don't do anything to her feet...

Oh, roz, you're right...I listened to about the first four seconds of the intro and muted it. I actually LIKE Bootylicious, too.
