As promised, our coverage from the Paralympics in London begins.
This appears to be the standard in assistive mobility in London. What I’m wondering is how the fuck you smoke the soapbar in that with the 360 transparent vinyl cover. I’m greatly stoked on the American version of roasting a bone (smoking a J) in a hotbox. American ingenuity at its finest, motherfuckers.
If you’re shocked that crips enjoy bong rips, tripping balls, getting loaded on occasion, etc.: wake up. WE DO THAT TOO! OOOhhh. Bad Crips. No fun for you because TAB’s (temporarily able bodied’s) can’t believe that someone they pity might be able to party them under the table. If you do, you get a whole new diagnosis: drug addict. Well screw that. At least we’re not 2 bottles of a night hypocrites w a habit called “I’m a wine/sake aficionado!!” Alcohol is more harmful than any other drug & most easily abused due to it’s legality. I find drinkers who won’t take a hit off a joint because “That’s doing DRUGS![ *audible gasp*” beyond laughable. Not saying I’ve never gone on a huge bender or 10, just saying when I did, I looked & felt like a cow that was sweating all the time, so I smelled like a delusional animal too.
This post dedicated w love to KK & JG who have been known to “get clean” w a crip.
An accessible airport bathroom in Frankfurt, Germany. I don’t really know why that pull up mechanism was there because it was in the middle of the fairly big bathroom. You couldn’t actually reach it if you were sitting on the can. Whatever. I didn’t touch it but I’m glad I took this picture so I could share it w you. If you can explain it, that would be great. Please submit some kind of comment if you know. And speaking of airports and travel, we have a big announcement! Zoe will be blogging from the 2012 Paralympics in London!! We are super stoked to feature athletes from as many countries as possible. It’s a stylish world & we are ready to meet it with aplomb!! Fancy! On a less exciting note I will be looking for something relevant to this blog around the two pre America’s Cup Race events in Aug. 2012. I wonder what the upholstery looks like on the Louis Vuitton yacht…tasteful I’m sure.
Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs & Betsy Johson aren’t going to represent the USA? What the hell kind of patriotism is that? We need their runway super powers now more than ever. The navy blazer will be good for not showing dirt around the wrists whilst propelling yourself in a wheelchair, but those white pants are like ticking time bombs of messiness. out of the whole collection, I like the belt & shoes the best, but frankly I’d never support such a boring collection, though I do appreciate its 40’s feel. Do you think Spain taps Nicolas Ghesquiere every four years? Lordy, I wish they would. Having designers create team uniforms/kits would be a great PR move for sports & couture. It would draw interest from a potentially untapped demographic & bring together that awesome PR power device the athlete/model or celebrity couple. RL’s resting on his Americana laurels. Let’s see a Heatherette interpretation. Hmmm…who can I talk to to get that ball rolling?
