The Ass Blog

maxresdefault

Welcome to the blog! Looney Tunes did not get censored when I was a kid so neither should I.

The ass is the ego. The ass does not exist. Beauty is all encompassing. Beauty is not a thing; it just is. The beauty of life is life itself and life itself is nothing more than a state of being; a state of being which cannot be labeled or identified without sacrificing the beauty of life. Hence the state of being is not, in fact, a state of being, but rather it simply is.

I drank a bottle of wine before school today.

As I get older life seems to have less meaning, probably because the illusion of meaning is ever fading away, exposing life for what it is; a meaningless void.

I cannot remember what I did, so I cannot remember what it was that I was going to do. But time is an illusion so all of that becomes irrelevant; further decomposing the facade that is the meaning of life.

I’m going to take a nap now.

Independence Day; our Forefathers’ Struggle with Beauty

Beauty certainly has come a long way and trends over time have come and gone and come again. Hopefully people do not start painting their skin white again or start wearing powdered wigs! They say that trends are cyclical ya’ know. 😉

A few fun facts:

  • The history of colonizing America spans from 1492 – 1763.
  • The first world map showing New World “America” was produced in 1507.
  • The Roanoke Colony was established on Roanoke Island, and is later referred to as the “Lost” Colony due to its disappearance.
  • The American Revolutionary War (1775–1783) gained the American colonists their freedom and Independence Day is celebrated each year on the 4th of July.

The evolution of make-up was an interesting (and often times lethal) journey for our ancestors. Some of the more notorious methods and products of the times included:

  • White lead paint to cover the skin and mercury sulfide for rouge coloring;
  • drawing one’s blood to achieve a faint color;
  • ingesting arsenic to achieve rosy cheeks; and
  • dilating pupils pupils with belladonna.

To add insult to injury, if a bride-to-be in England in 1770 managed to survive her beauty regimen of choice, her marriage could be annulled due to her fiancée being tricked into thinking she was more beautiful than she naturally was (apparently padded bras had not yet been invented).

So this holiday, choose your make-up safely and wisely and let your beauty shine; God Bless America!

Get that healthy glow by protecting that healthy glow!

Summer is in full swing, and I am a warm weather, sunny kind of a guy! I love to be outside and I love going on adventures; particularly in the sunny warmth of the season.

The sun and I have a love-hate relationship. On one hand, I am completely addicted to it. I probably have a mild bit of seasonal affective disorder; but the dark cold winter season certainly does nothing for me. Then Spring comes along and teases with bits of warm weather, hinting at the summer to come, intermixed with flashbacks to winter. Finally, the sunny warmth of Summer comes and puts those short, cold days behind us.

We need the sun for our survival. Being out and about in the sun’s nourishing glow provides us with much-needed, mood-enhancing vitamin D; something people in this part of the country are chronically deficient in due to our short summer season and oft cloudy skies.

However, it is no secret that the sun can wreak havoc on our skin, not to mention the increased risk for skin cancer. With any good thing; moderation is best.

The best way to protect against the harmful effects of the sun is to wear sun protection such as sun tan lotion. But that’s not all! Did you know that regular use of sun tan lotion can actually REVERSE signs of skin damage and improve the overall health of your skin? It’s true! So lather up with a quality sun lotion on a regular basis, followed by a quality retinol product and people just may start asking you if you have discovered the fountain of youth!

Below are pics of products that I sponsor and believe in. The suntan lotion also provides insect repellent which is a nice 2-1 product and the retinol products are winning awards all over the place!
