Fashionista Street: Don’t Tase Me, Babe

The photographer calls this shot “The Fashion Police.” Let’s hope she doesn’t have a taser, or a fashion schnook like me would be dead meat. Taser, by the way, has a new line of leopard-skin stun guns for Fashionista Street. It’s all the buzz (no pun intended) at this week’s CES in Las Vegas. The marketing campaign features two branding jingles: “Fashion with a Bite” and “Who says safety can’t be stylish!” Maybe it’s time to bring back Bob Dylan and the pill-box hat.

    All joking aside, you should see Don’t Tase Me, Bro on YouTube. Where is free speech safe in America? Taser, John Kerry, and the University of Florida — not to mention all the complacent witnesses in the audience — should be ashamed.

    Wandering through your website this morning, I checked out the “Don’t Tase Me, Bro” video on Youtube. I’d heard about the event, but had never actually seen it. Now, my blood pressure is elevated. I became enraged with John Kerry’s arrogance, insensitivity and totally bored, flip attitude, and lack of compassion.
    I’m glad your website doesn’t stray toward politics very often. It’s a big mood-changer.
    On another note, Kimberly and I are heading down to Atlanta today to view the exhibit, “Inspiring Impressionism” at the High Museum of Art. It includes old masters’ works side-by-side with impressionistic works supposedly “inspired” by those works. Whether or not the historians are accurate in their theories, I’ll as always, enjoy seeing Monets, Cezannes, Renoirs with a few Titians and El Grecos thrown in.

    Tom, I know what you mean about political mood-changers. I think a lot about starting another blog for media criticism and political commentary. I’ve got plenty to say on those fronts, but I just don’t know whether I have time enough to do another blog. I think the burgeoning growth of political blogs all across the ideological spectrum is an affirmation of free speech that can counter crap like what happened at the University of Florida. Free speech belongs to all of us — we use it or lose it.
