I think I was fourteen when my mother turned off the TV, turned to me and asked if I knew what sex was. Of course I did, I told her. And I did, by then I had been taking correspondence lessons from Larry Flynt and Bob Guccione for a couple of years. She actually used the phrase “birds and the bees”, as in “that’s why birds do it, bees do it… even educated fleas do it”. But I think she was being ironic. She’s cool like that… hey, check it out, so am I.
Technical Stuff: Taken with my Kodak C533 pocket digital. You can totally see the wings… fuck yeah. The people who designed my pocket digital gave it a viewfinder, even though just below it is a 1.8″ LCD screen, but they couldn’t set aside 30k of memory to allow my camera to hold focus without my finger on the trigger. I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it, creating a camera without a fixed focus option is the work of people who hate all life. I wouldn’t be surprised if their next generation of work skipped all the in between ‘almost evil’ stuff and just injects diabetes into people.
Cole Porter wrote his song about birds, bees and educated fleas having sex way back in 1928… and people like Barry White, Rod Stewart, Justin Timberlake and Prince have been ripping him off ever since. Cole’s song titles include “Love For Sale”, “After You, Who?”, “Anything Goes”, “My Heart Belongs to Daddy”, and “Mind if I Make Love to You?”. Check out his discography sometime, Cole was a bit of a pervert.
