I Now Hate TWD

Holy guacamole. I had this great idea at the start of the last night’s The Walking Dead episode to write about Tyrese’s conflicting statements about destiny then later about choices and freewill. Which all kind of ties up with ‘what makes a zombie’. Where zombies are pure destiny, lacking any freewill. The zombie apocalypse world is fully destiny driven, and even the survivors are stripped of the feeling of ‘choice’. Yet Tyrese seems to rage against this.

I think this psychological struggle occurs in many survivors. After my accident I negotiated between the two all the time: destiny vs. freewill. If I had just left the house two minutes earlier, if I hadn’t ridden my bike that morning, if I had only done everything differently, I wouldn’t feel like I shouldn’t be alive. (I’ve moved on from that- don’t worry about me. Therapy! Yay!)

So I was thinking along these lines while watching the show. But then? Shitballs.

I can’t even. I won’t spoil anything but I’ve spent the past twelve hours shaking my head.

Nice retooled intro though, right? And how annoying was it that the Talking Dead didn’t come on until 11? I fell asleep before then and now can’t find it on demand. Ugh. Anyway, destiny fucking sucks.

Men and hair and silver bracelets

Who watched The Walking Dead last night? How about The Talking Dead after? Did anybody else notice Slash’s jewelry?

But Slash. The man has a thing for silver. I know the hair, the hat, and the sunglasses are his trademark but does anyone ever see his eyeballs? This is coming from someone who frequently wears her sunglasses indoors. They are prescription lenses! I think the people at the supermarket understand.

Anyway, in my post from the other day Jack Flacco mentioned that my turquoise cuff bracelet looked like something Robert Plant would wear. He was so right! Look at this picture I found.

So much hair too. Sometimes I love a man with long hair, but I’m sorry Robert Plant, let me recommend a deep conditioning treatment for your whole situation there. Maybe the barber of Kashmir can do something with it.

Now Lenny Kravitz, man. This formerly big haired, much bejeweled rockstar made my tweenage heart beat faster.

IMG_2904.JPG I’m experiencing some serious heart palpitations even now! As I type! *fanning myself* Did you guys know he used to date Vanessa Paradis? The things you discover when you google Lenny Kravitz 1992.

Do you all see the connection between these men? Big ass hair that would put the ladies of Texas to shame, general shirtlessness (not on TTD obvi, but often you will find Slash shirtless) and huge statement wrist décor.

I guess if you swap out the shirtlessness for cowboy boots you could say these men are my style icons? :/ Nah, I’ll stick with Karen from Californication plus more bracelets as my style icon.
