Poor Lima

posted by on May 29 at 12:20 PM

By what way did I find this image?
The way began with the movie Máncora, which is in SIFF, screens on June 7th, and concerns youth, beaches, and sex. The movie begins in the city of Lima. The next step toward the image of the woman on the chairs was an interest in the city of Lima. Máncora is the source of that interest. The director, Ricardo de Montreuil, captured a melancholy that can be only be cultivated in cities that are old and crowded. I had no idea Lima was so old and so crowded. Wanting to see more of the city, I did a Google search for images. What did I find? Adriana Francesca Lima, a Brazilian supermodel. An image of the largest city in Peru only appears after the model. And the images of Adriana seem to outnumber the images of the city. This one woman is swamping a city of 8 million people.

That was my way to the legs, arms, and brown eyes of Lima.

Simple answer: no one jerks off to pictures of cities, especially cities that share names with supermodels.

WASHINGTON -- The number of Army suicides increased again last year, amid the most violent year yet in both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. An Army official said Thursday that 115 troops committed suicide in 2007, a nearly 13 percent increase over the previous year's 102. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because a full report on the deaths wasn't being released until later Thursday.

Speaking of bad architecture, if we wanted to, we could really fuck with Mudede by painting the image of Natalie Merchant's face, billboard size, on the EMP building (under cover of night, natch). Let him find out on his own, by way of serendipity. How much you wanna bet he'd end up on the evening news the same day, busted for madly groping the EMP in a frantically lusty frenzy?

How'd you find that? Typing stuff into google image search one-handed, I assume.

I just did my own google image search for Lima, Peru... here you go, Charles:
