the land of the 'free' and mental
An Oregon woman who posted photos of herself reclining nude and spattered with equine bodily fluids in the carcass of a dead horse has declared she was partly inspired by Star Wars. Jasha Lottin and her friend John Frost came to the attention of authorities in Oregon after an animal lover in South Carolina took exception to a …
...riding it and use it as beast of burden is OK, but posing nude with it is a no no. If she was dressed, would it be more or less revolting?
What, didn't *someone* use chunks of something very similar to a horse as a dress before? Was there any fuss back then? Thought so.
I am shocked and disgusted by what she did, but I wouldn't interfere with her freedom of speech. Use its fur (or skin) on the raw, while you're at it. Eeeeww.
I'm torn on this - on the one hand, what the hell is going through her goddamn first-world-spoilt mind? On the other - what the hey? We're all part of Gaia's great bonanza, all flesh and blood, all creatures born without morals or guidance, so as long as no earthly suffering was felt by any party, what does it matter?
Back on to the other hand— what the hell?!
I don't care if she lined up 15 dead horses and had a naked orgy on them and I don't think anyone else should either.
We (as a planet) spend way too much time preoccupied with what other people are doing. We also waste far too many resources on animals for no apparent reason. Tree huggers will be quick to point out that it is "a precious life form" but don't mind swatting bugs, using antibacterial soaps (the ones that use soap), etc. because those life forms are a direct inconvenice to them. Personally I don't care at all what you do with animals as long as it is within the law, it doesn't inconvenience me, and you clean up your mess. The fact that we have homeless people that are actually looking for help that can't get any while PETA holds fully catered rallies shows how stupid the whole "pets are people too" crowd really are. If our ancestors had been that idiotic we as a species would have died out long ago.
Please. Any *real* fan would know it was spelled just 'tauntaun', no CamelCase required.
Of course, anyone sensible would know that something described as a 'reptomammal' on the Star Wars wiki isn't worth arguing about in any further detail, but if I were sensible then I wouldn't be commenting here, would I?
if you've ever been present to see a deer gutted. Nudity is a bit unusual in that circumstance, I will grant, but she's not at all hard on the eyes, and I'd be lying if I didn't admit the predator ape in the back of my brain didn't find the scene at least somewhat appealing.
You would be too. But don't let me stop you.
Is it bad that I read this entire story and the only thing that seemed not right about it was that Han Solo didn't have a light-sabre, he used Luke's?
Also, when I watch that scene in Empire it just seems wrong somehow. Not because he's stuffing Luke inside a meat-bag (Hey look, a HK-47 reference lol), but because I believe that is the only scene, in any of the movies, that a non-Jedi actually uses a light-sabre.
First, that it was clearly Luke's lightsaber and not Han's, and getting that fact wrong is the most offensive part of the article. Also that it was out of character for Han to use the lightsaber after saying "Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid." in episode four. Needs must, I guess. After all, it would have got messy if he tried to blast his way in.
As for other use by non-Jedi, I fear you have overlooked the Sith (particularly General Grievous who presumably buys his in bulk) and the interesting case of R2D2 using Luke's as a buttplug for the first half hour of Jedi...
Have to say it, but this couple are in desperate need of some help for mental instability.
Whatever floats your boat, so long as it doesn't harm anything, but this couple decided to share it all with the world - what freaks me out most is their expressions. "Hey, this is normal and fun! Wheee!"
I *really* hope there was some class A drug imbibing going down during that photo shoot.
Shocked? No, just saddened to be honest - is this where civilisation has bought us? A pair of prize nutters gutting a horse, eating bits of it and rolling in it and posting the results on the web?
Sure, I know there's *much* worse shit happening around the world, but it's the blase nature of this particular sad charade that saddens me.
I looked at the images and wished I hadn't - and now to move swiftly on and attempt to forget I saw them and perhaps therein lies the problem.
Being human, I was curious and had to look, however, also being actually *human* I found it sick and unappealing - so is this couple 'less than human?' - hmm, jury is out on that one, I'd say resoundingly, YES, they are less than human - completely lost their moral compass.

...but I thought the tauntaun was already dead from exposure to the cold when Han sliced it open. But with all the changes Lucas keeps making, who the hell knows. Maybe in the 3D re-re-re-release the tauntaun will take a pot shot at Han first?
Mine's the fur coat...the one lined with fresh entrails.
Title should read "aspiring model finds way to be noticed"
Well.. I wouldnt do it, but I dont see that theres a problem. Horse was scheduled be euthenised, dispatched humanely.... so what... ive seen worse advertising material, and now ive seen something novel and different today.
There are thousands of bankers ripping ppl's tax money. There's a thousands of Eurocrats ripping ppl's tx-money. There's a small bunch of Greeks who turned that country to piss (ripping tax-money from ALL the ther Greeks). But yet, this insignificant couple reaches the headline.
They haven't even done anything illegal. Unlike the Greek authorities whom frauded to get into the Europe in the first place.
The same happens all over the 'western world' authorties, corporations' boses and other rich ppl ripping ordinary folks. Isn't it about time we try to do something about the things that really matters instead of focussing on a couple that fools around with a dead animal?
We're focussing on a couple that fools around with a dead animal to take our minds off the rest of the stuff you mention.
Thanks for the reminder, though - I read BBC News as well today and there was not one mention of the financial crisis anywhere, so it's good that someone's still on that.
I'm going to take your example though, and go around websites that aren't discussing the financial crisis, and remind them of it. That should fix the system in no time.
....said a spokesman for 'Socialist Worker'.
Seriously though there are enough colomn inches and bandwidth dedicated elsewhere to the latest 'oh fuck' moment in the world economy that we dont need to concern ourselves over the odd frivilous -if utterly rank- headline grabbing some attention.
As to the article 'WTF...??' really does sum it up.

I bet he's kicking himself he didn't think of doing that first, although, judging by the sheer size of the building he now owns just down the road from me in an industrial estate he could go one better; have a person inside a horse which is inside an elephant which is inside a whale... Russian doll tauntaun scene!
