Allright [sic]. Let's take a look at this picture again.


I've been mulling this over. There is something that really bothers me about this picture of Samantha Power.

She's sitting on a box with a HOLE in it. We've established that. What that means is that she is being offered up as a spectacle. And she sat down for the portrait willingly, unless there is a person with a gun in his in the background... And, if there is a woman sitting down for a portrait on a box with a hole in it, then we can say she is showing her beauty. And if she is showing her beauty, then let us judge it.

Judgments:

#1 Her arms are too long.

#2 Her back is curved. It should be erect.

#3 Her legs come down into her heels like a nerd's. A woman who wants to get a man stirring would sit in her heels--as if--she feels insecure. Samantha Power sits in her heels as if she's a Professor trying to pose for a photograph.

#4 The skirt is too long. It looks like someone threw a rag on her legs. It drops down around the ankles, laboriously saying nothing about her thighs--ah her marvelous thighs, just around where the ehem is. What it should do is be short enough to want to invite one's hands. What it does do is say, "Hey, why don't we go through these lawbooks for another 8 hours?"

#5 Right around where her arms join the shoulders, there is another sag. A lover might want to caress that curve that would be heavenly otherwise, but not in this case. It is sad and depressing, and it precipitously drops down into the sag of her entire body.

#6 Her entire posture is un-enticing. Her boobs are sagging, when they should be perking up, saying, "Hello, sunshine!"

Here is beauty wanting to beautiful:

Silly, but what man out there would not like to, erm, bring her to her senses?

UPDATE: Yo ka yok ya-he (with a yerkaratsman nshan).

And men always complain that women can't think straight because of their hormones...

They can't. It's already settled.

So the Ottomans and Chinese were right--leave all the decisions to the eunuchs. I knew Obama was leaving some group out.

There you go making things complicated.

Here's a sentence that's guaranteed to take your mind off of Samantha Power for a while:

"Yang Kuei-fei, the Tang emperor Hsuan Tsung's beautiful courtesan whose machinations set off a civil war, kept a tiny jade fish in her mouth."

I don't know about the analysis of the lady's portrait... I just wonder where and how you find the Youtube videos of obscure video clips.

Armen Filadelfiatsi said...

You know, now that I revisit this post, I think I was maybe a little to hard on Power. I probably shouldn't have posted that stupid picture twice. She shouldn't have posed for that picture to begin with, but Mea Culpa anyway.

Nazarian, are you asking me how I came across a beautiful Armenian girl? Nature. Even on the internet.

nazarian said...

I thought it was an Indian girl in the latest video clip... By 'obscure' I meant the video clips of the Persian singers and the other 70-s stuff that were posted earlier. Maybe these are famous songs and I'm probably detached (or ignorant) of them.

Armen Filadelfiatsi said...

The girl in the video is Tulip Joshi, and she's fully half Armenian--beating Princess Diana's 1/64th, or whatever it was, Armenian ancestry with a far healthier cup size and a mustache.

The 70s clips are mostly from 1974. I have this, um, preoccupation with that year.

Ani said...

When I watched that video, my first thought was "when did Sirusho make a Bollywood movie?" Really, they look a lot alike, but maybe it's just the mannerisms.

nazarian said...

Watched 45 seconds of the clip (couldn't handle more than that) and didn't see a mustache :) Must be well camouflaged.

Armen Filadelfiatsi said...

She does look like Sirusho. Much of it is the beautiful skin tone.
