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 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
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,
Then please consider this a formal invitation to become acquainted : your introduction by way of brief video clip [ courtesy : Babelgum ]
Admitted : Oftentimes the six-minute doc plays w-a-y-y-y Richter in the histrionics department [ not to imply I don't — my guess is that producers urged Hijab to "ratchet up the drama" for the cameras ] : to “raise the stakes,” ”show the element of danger,” “provide some conflict”…as if the visual assaults she orchestrates aren’t confrontational enough.
However, to be fair [ I mean : gauche much, Mary? Criticizing grifted content? ] I could be making excuses for the artist, when in fact she’s portrayed exactly as she is.
Whatever the case : now that I’ve provided a bit of background info, I don’t feel as if I’m doing a dis-service by ‘only’ sharing the digital art she creates.
Y’see, 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 . . .
