Guess What, I’m Not A Robot June 28, 2009

If you are female, you can prove that you are not a robot with way too much makeup, apparently.  Or, you have a fan blowing your hair around.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

What’s up with that?

I do not understand women.  But I get the basic point of this video.  She is pissed off at some guy.  She has deep feelings about it.  The guy is no doubt clueless about this, and does not know what he did wrong.

In a recent post, I noted that most women are weird about shoes.  Many of them also use too much makeup, like the chick in this video.

Vid makes perfect sense.

Wazz with you dudes?

Many need it.

The problem with a lot of wiserbud’s photos is that in most cases, the “w/o” photos are candid, while the “w/” photos are staged. The lighting is totally different, and the expressions are not comparable. I’d say that about half really benefited from makeup, while the other half were fine without.

But I’m more of a natural kind of guy – I like ’em the way God made ’em.

Yeah, I actually thought Courtney Cox looked better in the before pic than she did in the after.

Goldie Hawn, however, was pretty amazingly stark.

A woman can really do some amazing things with well selected and applied make up. There’s something about beholding it that make’s Dave’s synapses light up like Chinese New Year in Hong Kong.

although I probably shouldn’t have used a 7 second bottle rocket analogy.

Good makeup makes a woman look ‘finished.’

Too much goopy eye makeup (especially in unnatural colors) bothers me.

There’s an awful thin line between the ‘smoky’ eye that’s so popular with the starlets these days, and the ‘raccoon eyes’ effect.

I wear it, but avoid goopiness. And there’s something about a good lipstick that just makes my day better.

11. Dave in Texas - June 29, 2009

* synapses firing *

12. lauraw - June 29, 2009

Yeah, I started going a little nuts with the bright or dark lipsticks a year or so ago. That’s another good reason to keep the eye makeup simple.

13. Dave in Texas - June 29, 2009

That stuff even looked good on my cheek.

14. Robert - June 29, 2009

Wow. Looks like the new terminator line has realistic hair and mental issues. lawlz

15. lauraw - June 29, 2009

Heh, when did you notice I had marked you up?

16. Dave in Texas - June 29, 2009

Heh. Not till I got back to my hotel that evenin. Pretty bright lights in the bathroom there.

17. Mrs. Peel - June 29, 2009

Yeah, I try to make my eye makeup more “dramatic” for dates, but the trouble is that there’s a thin line between “dramatic” and “hooker.” Sometimes I have to take it off and start over.

On the bright side, when you’ve looked in the mirror and realized that you look like David Bowie, your evening can only go up from there.

18. TattooedIntellectual - June 29, 2009

Bowie in Labyrinth or Bowie as Ziggy Stardust?

On second thought, is there that much difference?

19. cynthia - July 1, 2009

this is the most deranged and beautiful work I have seen in years, destined to be not understood at first look because it exposes the viewer to something so keenly new that it cuts. I don’t mind bleeding, if I can look at this video. The melody is haunting and has instant mental playback, and the visuals are beyond any predictability. That which is beautiful and unpredictable is known as art.

20. Mrs. Peel - July 1, 2009

So, anyway, three cheers for makeup. Today, I would look as anemic and washed-out as I feel if it weren’t for makeup. Hip hip hooray!

Yes, but can you dance to it?

I give it a 45, Dick.

22. lauraw - July 1, 2009

I seem to remember something a long time ago that claimed to show that women’s posture and mood improved with a good makeup application.

I would not doubt it.

Guess what, your insights are not as deep as you seem to think

24. BrewFan - February 22, 2010

Eliza, if you’re referring to Michael’s insights I have just one word: Duh.

However, we humor him as he suffers from low self-esteem. He was a clarinet player as a child and it scarred him for life. Don’t hate the playa, hate the game.
