Your Green Eyes

babygirl, hows that bedroom we christened                                      
and that boy that you don't really love
all he wants is those curves of your body
all he don't is all of the above

steady income is the prize that youre winnin
for a sleep that youre losin at night
wonderin if there's somethin you're missin
i cant stand to sit and watch you go blind

had a dream you were sucking on icecubes
smilin at me cross the table we built
sun was shinin, the wind swept your pigtails
and your green eyes, they shone, just for me

been awhile since your smile meant somethin
now a courtesy to those you call friends
while youre peelin the label off your bottle
much too sober to think theres no end

to the misery loves company theory
your brand of misery is nothing like this
loverboy leaves the room and you call me
say you're missin the way that i kiss

but these games never come to fruition
at the end of the night i'm alone
and youve got some boys dick in your mouth
while i sit here and stare at my phone

Live! Nude! Vloggers!

Liz Shannon Miller, April 16, 2008

Some of the worst decisions people make involve when, where and why they take off their clothes. But that doesn’t seem to be a huge concern for YouTube user Chris3ff and the vloggers participating in his Naked Vlog Campaign.

As of writing, Chris3ff has located at least 125 videos. (edit: 600+ as of this date) My first reaction when hearing about this concept was, “Wow, we’ve discovered a way to make vlogging even more exhibitionist.” But what’s interesting about these vlogs is that many participants, normally so comfortable on camera, clearly find the experience a little disconcerting.

Speedyconkiwi is reduced to telling awkward jokes, whileJabazzy frets over her hair and makeup.

Of course, those from different planets seem to have no trouble whatsoever stripping down.

The guys seem to feel slightly more comfortable going sans garments (perhaps because a head-and-shoulders camera framing puts them in much less danger of violating TOS). Here,BilliLovesMargot performs an homage to the D’Angelo video “How Does It Feel”.

Not all of the men participating are so excited about taking it off. But Nalts’s round-up of this meme is comprehensive and fun — plus, naked Nalts, which is certainly not something you see every day (unless, I assume, you are Mrs. Nalts).

As Dinzla admits at one point, “I think this naked vlogging thing is kind of fun to do, because, well, anyone can do it. We all have a body and the only thing keeping you from revealing your body is you.” Of course, just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. But there’s something compelling about watching people normally so comfortable with exposing their emotions expose their bodies — or their bare shoulders, at least.

I wonder how longtime fans of the vloggers feel after watching the videos. After all, once you’ve seen someone naked, your relationship has totally changed..
