Women As Pokemon and Other Things I Have Never Finished Writing
When I set out write a post I am often crippled by my chronic lack of an attention span. Until last week when I deleted all my unfinished drafts, I had 3 times as many drafts as posts. Some of them had potential, but remained incomplete for one reason or another. Examples of reasons include moths fluttering about in my peripheral vision, finding myself in another LeBron is not going to Chicago debate with a friend who will remain nameless, or my occasional bouts with ennui.
Here are a couple of ideas that I never completed:
Women Personality Types and Their Pokemon Counterparts:
TV Character Equivalent: Diana Guzman played by Michelle Rodriguez in the film Girl Fight.
Magikarp: Less of a personality, and more of an idea. Magikarps are for the most part useless, but their evolved forms are quite awesome. They turn into the Pokemon pictured below, which depending on your point of view is a swan or a bitter old shrew. I choose to look on the bright side and go with swan.
Other Media Equivalent: The Pretty Ugly Girl who gets made over in teen movies.
Magikarp Bonus: It’s only attack is splash attack, which serves as a metaphor for what is often the best qualities of those diamonds in the rough. Very wet…um fish.
When The Glow Is Not Enough:
This entry was supposed to be about my hatred of the character Bruce LeRoy, who was famously played in an effeminate manner, by alleged woman-beating actor Taimak(seen below). I intended to rant about how preposterous it was for the gorgeous Laura Charles, ably played by Vanity(below Taimak) to hook up with, and eventually marry Bruce.I was distracted from doing so because of the arrival of tacos.
I was supposed to include other unfinished/underpursued ideas, but true to form I have become distracted again. I will push the publish button before all is lost.
