Nude Beaches. Have you ever been? If you have, you know that the notion in your head of bronzed, beautiful bodies laying out with their body parts exposed like fruit on a fugging platter is entirely false and only exists in our imagination. Nude beaches are where the oldest, hairest, most decrepit of people go. Namely, because they have moved beyond the modesty of insecurity and don’t really care what anyone thinks.
That is irony for you. Young, beautiful people are insecure about their beautiful bodies. Old, less attractive people no longer care. Are you there God? Its me, Gargaret. Can you please explain this?
When you are young and attractive, you care more about what people think. That is why we spend hours in the gym, plucking our eyebrows, shaving our assholes, and buying fashionable clothing. I have found that (even more ironically), the more you work out and take care of yourself the more insecure you are.
Then one day, you reach a certain age where you realize it doesn’t matter what the fuck the world thinks. The world isn’t a single entity. It is comprised of millions of individual people, and even if you ask, you will never actually know what any of those people are really thinking.
So I think we should all take a page from the book of old people. We should realize that these are the only bodies we are ever going to have, and embrace them while they are still hot enough to embrace us back.
Do I think this is reasonable? Probably not. The true acceptance of your body seems to be something that only comes with the grace of age. And that, in itself, is inherently beautiful.
During Gay Days, Rose McGowan was not only our official mascot, but also the background wallpaper for my phone. I did this on purpose, because every time I was around a gaggle of hot people and felt myself getting insecure, I just asked myself WWRMD?
You may ask yourself: What the fuck are you talking about you stupid, skinty bitch. But the truth is that everyone in the world, no matter how attractive, famous, young, old, or racist they are gets insecure. Rose McGowan was insecure, and look at her now.
Do you remember her back on Charmed? Scream? Grindhouse, or Planet Terror? Rose McGowan used to be fugging stunning. Then, because she was insecure she decided to fuck up her face and blame it on a car accident. Now her face looks like a melting pot of play-doh, meth, and Maybelline #9 busty beige foundation.

Have you ever thought about how Facebook can fuck with our self esteem? The whole idea of cyber bullying basically originates with Facebook, and we all know that whenever we post something that gets more than 5 likes we get an inward sense of pride over the fact that complete strangers are giving us validation. We hand out our “Likes” like badges of complimentary honor, as if us clicking our fingers can change someone’s entire mood. The sadness of it is that it actually can.
In a world where all of our friends are visible to the public, all of our parties are posted online for strangers to see, Read more…
The caption on this photo said : Soulmates die together. And that’s completely true. They die of boredom. And just so you know, National Geo-fucking-graphic these two skeletons weren’t soulmates. They were cold because they were garbed in nothing but a hamster pelt when a meteor hit the earth causing a year-long winter.
Anyway, sometimes it is our duty at gloganvlog to post something serious. I wouldn’t normally do this, but the following is an excerpt from my actual personal journal (which I have kept since I was 15. and straight. haha.)
I’m posting it just in case it helps someone out there work through their own shit.
Enjoy. Read more…
