“People love to slowly uncover things about you as they go on more dates,” agreed dating strategist Michelle A. Roberts In fact, this strategy holds true in the wild kingdom as well. According to psychology today,
“Caution during courtship is also characteristic of spiders. The male wolf spider, for example, must enter a long, dark entrance of a female’s compound in order to court and copulate.
This he does slowly. If he is overeager, she devours him.
HAHAH!! The female spider devours the man if he is too eager!! Haaa! I loved this bit from an article on flirting. Can't help but froth over psychology. Read the article here.

"Lula Hyers: Ever since I was born, sex ruled the world. There was sexual innuendo in every facet of the mainstream media, and porn was, like it is now, widely accessible and watched by younger and younger people. At the same time, nudity——especially nudity among those same young people——was becoming more and more censored and sexualized. I try to show that not every nude is sexual, and not everything sexual is pornographic."

* SCARY!!!!* Can't help but think this is one big MASSIVE metaphor for the direction our world is moving in with our celly's & more. I was recently at the Miami airport and stopped in ma sneaks when I saw a VIRTUAL lady speaking about the airport or some shiet. It truly looked like a cute little Latino lady -- but it was just an empty HOLOGRAM!!! It was sooo trippy. She was moving & speaking and looked like she had something very important to tell us passerby's! Ta ta, sister. Gotta keep moving. On my feet.
dolce far niente: the sweetness of doing nothing
I recently watched La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty) and lingering images and lines from the movie have been truly tickling my brain since. It's ultimately an incredibly beautiful story on the meaning of life (or atleast, I thought ;) as each scene seems to make a comment on the nature of duality. The movie shows the sweetness of life; youth, love, purity, nature, while also exposing what seems sweet, but is actually an empty, illusory sweetness. Conversely, the movie takes a good, long look at mediocrity, loss of hope, bleakness, and illusion...which provides a sometimes stark, yet often subtle, contrast to the film's rich, incredibly vivid imagery.
The movie is truly alive and dead, as it truly prompted me to ooooooo eeeee ahhhhhh, look inside myself (heh) ...and see if I could find some not-so-alive parts of myself that would like to join the otherwise, party. I imagine it did this for a lot of people as both introspection and a re-clarified perspective were the swift gifts of this movie. In addition to mesmerizing scenes and perplexing, perhaps even faux-insightful (a line so simple that there must be another meaning...but maybe not?!! aka the roots line - of course, roots are important sista! heeeeheeehooohooooo) lines that stay in your head for days, keepin' you itchin' and ticklin'
