As A Kid, I Often Said I Wished I Could Speak In Hieroglyphics
“How rad it would be,” I thought
[ though — since the timeline I’m referencing is circa rural Arkansas —
quite likely not verbatim, my choice of vernacular ]
“If I could speak in pictures. Fancy symbols, and all that shit . . .”
Meaning : not carved in stone, but rather contained
in word bubbles,
like in a comic strip
Y E A H .
A funny thing, time : cycles : that symbol of the serpent swallowing its tail . . .All these years later, and where do I find myself? Obsessed with animated .gifs / yearning to communicate by means of a visual vocabulary. But I mean . . . let’s face it : Does this gem
excavated-from-the-uncredited-swag-on-imgur from Tod Browning‘s silent film The Show [ image source / with kind regards to Mogsville ] not speak volumes?
Or how about the next, in terms of a comment response?

And this flash-tastic action? Is it worth the proverbial thousand?
[ Or has ‘creepy’ been eclipsed by the contest of All-The-Fucks-You-Don’t-Give? ]
Hasty generalizations and snide jabs swept aside like unpaid internships, corporeal punishment, or any scenario in which Unique, Special Beings aren’t coddled — even and especially when [ HARMPH! ] “bored. So tot-al-ly bored” : Animated awesomesaucery is served with syllables and consonants, on occasion.
For example : this little ditty by Seacrestcheadle, which I would’ve plastered on my pal Ugly Shyla‘s wall many moons ago, if Facefail permitted such forms of communication [ because yeah, She Gets It ]
Alas, Focus! I need focus!
Seacrestcheadle isn’t why I’ve chosen to get bloggy this fine day [ though worthy a post of his own, indeed! ] Au contraire, I’ve intended to post about the following individual for quite some time now . . .and finally : here we are — and here I am.
If by chance you’re not familiar with the guerilla art of Princess Hijab,
O.K. — Now that I’ve provided a bit of background info . . .
Aside from recalcitrant acts of Hijabization, the Princess constructs some friggin’ amazing GIF animados ; must admit.
And since ultimately, that’s what I’m ‘on about’ today . . .
