ANNOUNCEMENT!

The time has come, friends. 

I’ve moved!

My idiocy is now chronicled over at www.egajones.com. (Start here.

This is  big, exciting stuff for me—- and for you, too, because I’ll be posting WAY more often!

Feel free to shoot me an e-mail at heyitsega@gmail.com and let me know what you’d like to see more of over at Ega Jones.

Minor disclaimer- my new blog is a bit more personal, and delves a little bit into my love and sex life. If you’re weirded out by this (or you’re my mom), I’d say the new blog is not for you. 

Thanks so much for all of the tumbling fun, y’all. Now, head over to www.Egajones.com !!!

The poetry generally is like a rhythmic articulation of feeling. The feeling is like an impulse that rises within—just like sexual impulses, say; it’s almost as definite as that. It’s a feeling that begins somewhere in the pit of the stomach and rises up forward in the breast and then comes out through the mouth and ears, and comes forth a croon or a groan or a sigh. Which, if you put words to it by looking around and seeing and trying to describe what’s making you sigh—and sigh in words—you simply articulate what you’re feeling. As simple as that.

But I think the first real change in women’s body image came when JLo turned it butt-style. That was the first time that having a large-scale situation in the back was part of mainstream American beauty. Girls wanted butts now. Men were free to admit that they had always enjoyed them. And then, what felt like moments later, boom—Beyoncé brought the leg meat. A back porch and thick muscular legs were now widely admired. And from that day forward, women embraced their diversity and realized that all shapes and sizes are beautiful. Ah ha ha. No. I’m totally messing with you. All Beyonce and JLo have done is add to the laundry list of attributes women must have to qualify as beautiful. Now every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes.

Sorry I’ve been so quiet, guys. I’m working on something big… you’ll hear about it soon! (Hint: it’s just another blog. So, maybe not that thrilling to you. But to me… very.)

Don’t give up on me! I love you all for reading- and promise you’ll have a lot more to read, coming soon.

They’re ———- gross, man. Look, I love beautiful girls too. I think everyone should be free to have their knee socks and their sweaty shorts, but I’m over it. I’m over this weird, exhausted girl. I’m over the girl that’s tired and freezing and hungry. I like bossy girls, I always have. I like people filled with life. I’m over this weird media thing with all this, like, hollow-eyed, empty, party crap.

Yes to bossy girls.
