topless-reading-4

There comes a time when every blogger takes a desperate leap to increase their hits.  We all know what that means for me though right?  I either have to post about cars or sex.  It’s depressing, but true. Comics are only as popular as the movies make them, and even then not everyone reads.  I’ve been looking at ways of increasing my hits without compromising my own values and appreciations, and thanks to the recommendation of an exhibitionist friend who lives here in Colorado, I found the perfect update for my site!

A group of women who run a website titled The Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society, which is based in New York, get together and read books while topless out in public.  According to the site, New York doesn’t have laws against sitting around certain areas without your top on.  So this band of friends gets together on a regular basis and chats about their favorite crime novels.  How can I increase my blog hits without feeling like I’m desperate?  Combine my love of reading with my love of those who’re are willing to push the boundaries of what is socially acceptable. I have a love of doing nude art as well, and this also falls in line with that. Group bio from their website is below…

We’re a group of friends, and friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends, and complete strangers, who love good books and sunny days and enjoying both as nearly in the altogether as the law allows. Happily, in New York City, the law allows toplessness by both men and women. So that’s the way we do our al fresco reading. If you’re in New York and the weather’s good, won’t you join us sometime…?

To answer your question…yes, this site is filled with pictures of these women laying around a public park in New York completely topless reading books together.  Now before you head on over to their blog, Keep in mind this isn’t a pornographic site.  (well, I guess that depends on you’re own reasons for visiting huh?) From what I can gather, this is a group of women (and men occasionally) that really do like to live on the edge in the company of a good book.  I’m not certain I would be brave enough if I was a woman to do this, but I’m not going to hate on this band of readers for their need to feel alive and liberated.

Currently they’re working their way through a good selection of hard crime novels, which is always good reading despite the author.  However I’m hoping they bump into this little blurb supporting their reading/exhibitionist group and look into getting some comics in their future reading lists.  I know I could give them some damn good reads that would not only be substantial, mysterious, and fun, but also go right along with their exhibitionist drive.

1. Watchmen – which deals with that pulp fiction era of superheroes, but also has a blue man completely in the buff, presenting this image that nudity isn’t bad, and no one should be afraid of it.

2. Y the Last Man – in which all the men have died except for one, and the mystery of how all the men around the world kicked the bucket begins, leaving women in charge of the post-apocalyptic society.  It’s thought-provoking and intense, with quite a humorous end.

3. Sin City – a quick read, but still incredibly fun.  Filled with the feeling of noir and over-the-top crime crime stopping action, sex, violence, and wonderfully written campiness.

But even if they don’t see this and go on with their reading endeavors, I hope they know that what their doing is awesome and riveting.  I wonder what’s next on their list after the crime novels have been read through?

DoctorPuppet

Doctor Who’s become so popular that it’s becoming a fan-film maker’s dream.  Just under a month ago, Doctor Puppet Episode 1 was released on youtube – this episode titled “The Red X.”  In typically Doctor Who style, it combines humor, angst, and a little quirkiness to the mix.  The only thing missing is the hilarious dialog coming from Matt Smith and David Tennant.

And isn’t the likeness uncanny???  This is one of the things I really miss as a child – a handful of shows that showed us the magic of puppetry.  Granted I think this viral show is much more on the clay-mated side of TV, but it still represents something which we’ve lost in today’s television magic, which is so much of what Doctor Who represents at its core.  Who ever started this show, you’re great!  Keep it up!
