I love all the media reports saying that these Instagram photos posted by 20 year old Israeli soldier Osher Maman are “disturbing.” Who are they kidding?
The kid may be wasted, but he’s an expert at self-presentation. Alongside his love for his weapon, he’s also super patriotic with his star of David and the galaxy tattoo above his left nipple.
Compared to torture, arbitrary killing, and daily humiliation of the occupied Palestinians, these photos seem sweet and completely harmless. Reminds me of the manufactured controversy over the Israeli occupation soldiers dancing to Kei$sha’s Tik Tok during their patrol.
Thank you, blessed interwebs, for providing us with this brief entertainment.
These nearly naked Venezuelan pro-Ahmadinejad protesters/exhibitionist may seem far afield from Tokyo. But if we’ve learned anything in this time of instant image access, it’s that the potential for moe in our daily lives is increasing in every Twitter/Facebook millisecond.
I wonder who came up with the brilliant idea of placing their hero on their crotches. This loving tribute to the Iranian leader reminds me of the funeral of daddy Assad with a public mourner who had the deceased daddy tattooed on each of his (male) breasts.
I guess if the dicatator were inside you, it would be impossible to exhibit to others. The image also makes me wonder what the view from behind the protesters must look like. Thanks Hooman!
Wow! Thanks to tipster J-son, I can share with my dear readers a new-to-me blog called Hot Guys Reading Books. To quote from the blogs mission statement, “There are plenty of attractive men in the world, but unfortunately few of them that are avid readers. Welcome to “Hot Guys Reading Books” the blog that scours the internet for examples of luscious literary men and gathers the evidence in one place.”
This is a peculiar moe that even my husband will love. I like how some of the men in the photos are photographed in public, others in more private settings. Yet all become public through this online collection. And I love the non-snarky tone, and the request to blog readers that if they don’t find the guys hot enough, they should send in their own photos. Ahhhhh, the useless pleasures of the interwebs. . .
Ah the interwebs. I just re-discovered my favorite performance artist, Nao Bustamante, and this delicious performance at Sundance last month.
