    I use two fingers. Get them a little wet first. Then put the curved end between your fingers. Hold the skin open with your other hand and come in with your two fingers from the bottom, away from the center. Then just slide it in and pull your fingers out. Repeat as necessary.

    e: You'll get used to the sensation in time.

    His notoriety is getting this plastered all over the 'net today. What bothers me about it even more than the outline of Buzz's Balls in that one picture, is that this glorifies the cliche misconceptions about people who are into clothing. We all probably spend more money on clothes than the average person, but Bissinger's methods embody the clothing enthusiast who is more about peacocking around in their tacky clothes that costs thousands and thousands based in great part by name recognition.

    Bows it resembles a white version (but not exactly the same) of that Balenciaga jacket that's out for this season.

    Also, all the guns are censored in that crappy video to that crappy song. Jeezy's "r.i.p." video has the words "to the head" censored.

    Much of his music glorifies guns and drugs. I can't see why you'd be surprised by this.

    IDK, I read it more as a really severe midlife crisis combined with some sort of repressed sexual identity thing getting released, not so much about the clothes. I respect him for writing such a candid article, I guess. I think it's going to go way over the head of the average GQ reader though.

    I read this without reading what you were responding to and thought you were talking about ... something else.

    I've had my Nudies for over a year, and use them most of the time. Lately I've been thinking they've stretched a bit too much. Is it possible to safely shrink stretched jeans somehow?

    Well, I always hang dry them after washing. Although I'm not sure when it was I last washed these. Guess I'll hope it shrinks them a little.

    Good call. He's wearing the same printed shirt underneath. With those sunnies I actually like the look

    I just read the article and it kind of bummed me out. Maybe I'm spending too much time and interest on the appreciation of clothes. At the end of the day they're just garments we wear on our bodies. There's a certain level of vanity that one can reach in fashion hobbyism that makes me uncomfortable with the whole thing.

    As uncomfortable as stories of overconsumption make me feel, let's not kid ourselves-- clothing is and has always been more than just something we use to cover our bodies. Like, for just about every assemblage of people ever.

    I just watched that video. couple things:

    1. Yes, ASAP incorporates real live impoverished people into his brand/narrative/fantasy. But no, that's no different from the fantasized version of urban decay that hip hop has used since it started. discussing the use of dominican folks as a suddenly new problem ignores every other romanticized portrayal of the inner city.

    2. bringing children of god into this is just dumb. totally different

    I agree. I didn't mean that clothes have no significance culturally or socially, but that in the end they are, as physical objects, just pieces of fabric woven together in pretty shapes, and that such a thing should not so strongly influence the life of one interested in fashion. There's just the pitfall of letting clothing define who you are, instead of defining the clothing yourself. Buzz made the pitfall of following the former, it seems. It's not even the consumerism that bothers me, but the pity for this man's way of thinking.
