There’s a little weird air in the world this morning. I was up a little early and out for a run. Slowly getting back on top of it. Shorter run than the other day, but then I’m still recovering from the first run back of getting into shape. I hop online to get the morning dose of news. Some good, some not so good.
My headline is a little strange right? One of the stories I saw this morning on CNN had to do with bras. Of course that’s probably gonna pique the interest of most guys, probably a lot of girls. There’s an awful lot of women that wear them. What’s the deal with formaldehyde?
Victoria Secrets has a line of bras known as pushup bras. I’m thinking I’ve seen a few up close and personal on women. Well it’s alleged that this line of bras has formaldehyde in it. You know, that smelly stuff that keeps frogs fresh for school experiments. 🙂 Actually Victoria Secrets denies the use of formaldehyde in it’s products. This isn’t stopping a good number of women from coming forward and saying they’ve had rashes and possibly scarring from the product. Thus they allegedly have formaldehyde bras.
As a guy, I feel it’s my civic duty to protect that which a lot of us hold dear – the breast. The desire to which they create for attraction is nothing to be ignored. Thus if you have a bra, not only from Victoria Secret, but any bra causing an issue with rash or scarring. Don’t keep wearing it. Do us all a favor and protect those valuable beauties from such pain and suffering.
Of course there is probably a class action suit coming to Victoria Secret. However, I’m not sure how reasonable it is. I am not a lawyer, only a concerned man looking to protect a valuable asset to the human race.
All of this leads me to today’s pick. Ridiculosous. By a group out of the UK, Electrocution 250. Absolutely brilliant, high paced, jam packed, silly music that should be in a cartoon. If you don’t see the irony in what I’ve been talking about and the title of today’s song, then I don’t know what to say.
I first heard about them roughly 2 years ago. I was so taken aback by the sheer prowess and the sly humor in the music that it’s really a fetish that I have with them. I bought the CD. When I need a musical laugh I can always go right to the Electrocution 250 CD. It’s insane. The chops, the precision, the runs, the melodies, the crazy rhythms. It’s almost like a mathematical joke in music, yet it’s still musical. That’s no small feat to accomplish.
Generally with most technique oriented musicians they’re pushing their fingers as fast as they can go, but they tend to forget about a melody. That’s what I love about Electrocution 250. They don’t forget about the melody. They’ve merely sped it up to mach 10. It’s not random shredding for the sake of shredding. It’s melodic shredding turned on it’s ear.
My connection here with the music and the bras is that it’s fairly ridiculosous that someone will sue Victoria Secret for making their breasts look better. Especially since Victoria Secret has already come out with a statement that claims they do not use formaldehyde in manufacture of their product. Thus it’s very likely to come from a 3rd party shipper that may be using the chemical. Who knows. It may be interesting to see where this falls to the floor and what’s left standing.
Go get Electrocutioned!
