An old photo

I posted this as a “private” post a little under a year and a half ago. I’m not sure why I didn’t “unhide” it at the time, but I reckon I might just as well post it now. It’s not the very best photo I’ve ever taken, but it’s … um … you know … interesting, nevertheless.

It is of my good acquaintance Rob, with his then-new band, the Panty Huffers, at the Uptown Bar in (of course) the Uptown area of Minneapolis. I’m not sure whether they’re still together and/or whether Rob is still performing. He is a very bad boy

He is a very bad boy…

*shrug* Enh.

Yeah, well…
Sometimes makes for interesting—if not necessarily good—entertainment though. But certainly, yes indeed, he isn't somebody most anybody I know would want to take home. Very high maintenance and more trouble than he's worth, don'tchaknow….

I have no idea who she is, but I like that cute raven-haired woman, foreground left.

Hmmm. The one with her tongue sticking out? On the left in this photo?

Another angle

Personally, I think I prefer the woman behind her wearing the choker with the ring on it,
not to mention this woman:
her 1

this woman:
her 2

and this woman:

all of whom where there that same night, but … well … to each their own, I always say.

All very cute women (magnificently photographed, too; didn't you run that last one here fairly recently?), but I'll stick to my guns. I like Miss Raven-hair.

Sticking to guns is frequently good, yes. I give you credit for that. And she does look better when her tongue is not hanging out.

Glad you enjoyed seeing the others as well (at least, that's the inference I draw from your reply). Yes, I did indeed run that last photo here fairly recently. I find that woman more than just a little bit attractive, have seen and photographed her more than once, and very much wish I could get in touch with her (and that she'd be willing to do more photos). *sigh* Ah well.

They're all pleasant to look at, and your unerring eye captured their images at telling moments. Now that I think about it, the woman with the choker and ring has a blissful expression that I find appealing.

However -- tattoos, multiple piercings, and bondage/biker chic just aren't my thing. A dozen years ago I had a relationship with a woman I might describe as a folkie-lace Goth. What I got from that is that I probably shouldn't get involved with a Goth.

I am primarily attracted to women with raven-black (or at least very dark) hair, which is why it's unusual that the woman I'm presently interested in has blonde hair.

That seems utterly reasonable in any number of directions.

Me, while I'm not specifically attracted to tattoos, I don't generally find them objectionable and wouldn't rule out a relationship just because a woman had one or more of them. Although I must say that the tattoos of the woman in the purple top are so fantastically wonderful I do think they really are a part of why I find her so attractive, rather than as something to be overlooked or thought of as "just there—a normal part of that person."

Piercings? That's a tougher one. Some of them do rude me out. Heck, just the notion of them rudes me out, since I can't help thinking about what they must feel like, especially those in … uh … sensitive parts of the body. They're something I most certainly wouldn't care to do to myself (well, truth to tell, I did have my earlobes pierced in order to wear earrings for a while, but it got too bothersome and I've long since let the holes close up). But I don't have any direct experience with someone who has them, so I'm not going to rule such out until/unless I discover it just won't work.

Then there's that bondage/biker chick chic and Goth thang. Hmmm. I dunno. I guess it depends on how much it's an annoying affectation (since most any annoying affectation can get, well, annoying) and how much it's a part of the person. And how much I find I like the person it's a part of.

Obviously, everyone's mileage varies. But the world would be a pretty dull place if we none of us had different opinions and tastes and outlooks, eh? (I seem to recall Shelly Berman being in a Twilight Zone episode about that very thing a long, long time ago.)

The young lady with the tattoos looks very familiar - like someone who works at The Loon on Lyndale...

"People, people, people!"

I don't (heaven knows) seek out women with tattoos; what puzzles me are the ones who get what appears to be a random splotch here and then a random splotch there, just because there's room for it and she has a momentary fancy; or so it seems to me.

And then there's the phenomenon which some call the "tramp stamp." Well, it's a lifestyle and/or aesthetic choice, I suppose.

That last woman is a remarkable beauty. Bit of a Betty Page bangs thing. Love her smile.

I like the expression of the dark-haired woman at the front of the audience. She seems to be saying, "what is this shit?"
