Visual DNA

RESIZE_374988A9

A friend of mine sent me this link for an interactive test to discover your Visual DNA.  You are taken through a series of pictures where you are asked to click on the photo that most appeals to you in that category.

At the end of the visual questionnaire, you will have a profile that describes your visual personality.

I took a test like this once at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art.  It was set up during a big social function for people to determine their dating personality.  The funny thing is, at the end of the test, you were assigned a color and a corresponding “match” color.  The idea was for everyone to wear their sticker and you would then be better able to identify your perfect mate.

On a recent trip to the library, I was reviewing the New York Times Best Seller List, in hopes of finding an interesting new read.  I was immediately drawn to Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler.  Mainly because it was a take on my all time favorite book from adolescence, Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret. by Judy Blume

I certainly wasn’t disappointed by this hysterically absurd memoir written by comedian Chelsea Handler.  My only disappointment, was not skipping my girls night out two weeks ago, and driving the 10 miles to Barnes and Nobel to meet her when she was in town.

Be aware though, she is very irreverent.  There were a few topics that I was a little bummed that she poked fun at, but I think that’s her shtick.

Irresponsible and Disturbing

MTV has initiated a casting call for young women from 17 and 24, five foot nine and six feet tall, and between 130 and 190 pounds to be a part of their new reality show Model Maker.

Here is an excerpt from their press release:

“Women come in all shapes and sizes, but models don’t. The term model conjures an image of stick-thin, towering beauties oozing confidence, glamour, poise and sexuality from every pore. “Skinny,” “no body fat,” and “size zero” are the words and phrases associated with models. “Chubby,” “well-fed,” and “big- boned” are not.”

It goes on to say, “With weekly eliminations looming, models must put their best foot forward at all times while staying focused on losing weight.”

The winner will receive $100,000, a modeling portfolio, a personal trainer for a year and “the chance to jumpstart the career of your dreams.”

Can you say disgusting?!

From Buns to Bust

big_butt_women

Have you ever dreamed of transplanting the extra junk in your trunk to your bust?  According to a recent report in the WSJ, the option may be on it’s way to the U.S. 

A procedure that couples a person’s own fat cells with stem cells is already being administered in Japan and Europe and may be a better alternative to saline and silicone.

With recent news from Christina Applegate’s courageous battle with breast cancer, and her subsequent election to have a double mastectomy, using the patients own fat cells, may be a welcome option for breast cancer survivors.

All I have to say is, I am more than willing to donate some of my belly fat to science.

    I am so disturbed by the lasted “Reality Show” coming soon to a TV near you.
    Unfortunately it will probably be a hit, as people can’t seem to look away from a train wreck.

    I will also have to check out the read…maybe you will loan me yours ;).

  2. Hey CJ, gross eh?

    As for the book, I just returned it to the library today. Sorry. ;D

  3. Wow, that model for that reality show looks like she is a figurine in a museum, or could be Gumby’s girlfriend in the bendables category– either way it’s not something I buy into.

  4. Hi Laura, thanks for the comment.

    Just for the record, this is a picture from a past runway show. This is not a contestant for Model Maker.

    From what I could see, they are still in the casting process.

    I used this photo as an illustration in correlation to the comment made by MTV:

    “Women come in all shapes and sizes, but models don’t. The term model conjures an image of stick-thin, towering beauties oozing confidence, glamour, poise and sexuality from every pore. “Skinny,” “no body fat,” and “size zero” are the words and phrases associated with models. “Chubby,” “well-fed,” and “big- boned” are not.”

    I thought the picture I included in this post embodied the disgusting remark that this man made.

    that model gives me the shivers thinking about how skinny she must look in real life. This is not something to be aspiring too..it looks unhealthy. Not to be non-PC but we see photos like that on the tv daily-when we see another famine in North Africa. Growing up in Africa, skinny limbs like that are the sign of one thing-chronic starvation…the West’s women are doing to themselves when in Sub-Saharan Africa-they don’t have a choice to actually give up food, they never get enough of it to begin with.

    I tried out the Visual DNA site…yet another social networking site for me to get addicted to!! Not a good thing.

  6. “on its way”

    not

    “on it’s way”

    🙂
