On the Woefully Miniscule Number of Slog Posts Dedicated to Films About Popping Zits

I will take this unique opportunity to increase it by one.

You’re welcome.

I love popping zits. Black heads that just keep giving are my favorite.

Ugh, gross.

YouTube actually has a lot of zit-popping and boil type videos. This one is quite disgusting. Something completely gross, yet I watched the video until the end. I'm glad my zit problems are not that severe. Shudder.

I wish I had this much luck on the bad boy on my right buttock this morning. I couldn't get far enough under it and it seemed to pop further inward.

I saw this video projected onto a huge screen at 'Le Consortium' in Dijon (a builing that used to house grain and slaves and was later remade into a contemporary art space). This is the same airy music that played then. The security guards mostly scowled and/or snickered at any one who stopped to look at the film. I found it difficult to tell exactly what I was looking at at first--blown up so monumentally and documented so lovingly. First the images seem somehow pleasing (or maybe you are tricked into this by the music) and then, after you figger it out, you feel this sense of repulsion and mock betrayal. I watched in fascination. I loved it.

EVen accounting for the zoom, he gets stuff out when it seems they cant give any more!

Anyone have any good methods for cleaning vomit off of keyboards? I tried a damp towel, but there's still this little chunk of carrot under the space bar.

I love popping zits...especially nice big blackheads...but watching someone else do it for 4 1/2 minutes made even me feel kinda sick.

Oh My God!

that is the worst way to pop a zit or blackhead. the best way to extract is to place a round tube or object that is slightly larger than the most painful circumfrence of the blemish and push down toward your skin. there are some blackhead extractors similar. it drains the zit but doesn't push the bacteria all back up in the skin. its just hard to find something to use but it changed my life. i never have zits get worse any more. and blackheads are gross because they have a thin clear pouch around them that stays behind when you push out the blackhead and it just fills up again. you have to peel that clear film out of the pore, if you can see it.
