Friday Five: But Seriously...

Friday, March 13, 2015
This week's Friday Five:
  1. What's something most people just don't take seriously enough? Drunk driving.

  2. What's something most people take too seriously? The credibility of YouTube "beauty gurus."

  3. What kind of serious business are you up to today? Coaching one of my staff for her first make-up application certification.

  4. When did you last get the giggles at a time when you were expected to be serious? During Fifty Shades of Grey.

  5. What are some foods you think of as serious, and what are some you think of as funny? I don't know if I've ever considered food to be serious, but I guess foie gras? And I think crabs (as in crustaceans) and black truffles are pretty funny.

  1. oh yes.. drunk driving. like someone my age still does it. and i /seriously/ can't believe it. i'm dumb are you... i'm not friends with them but when i hear about their behaviour...

    oh god. empires have been built on the 'guru-ness' of beauty you tubers...

    i think i snorted at a few moments when watching 50shades. just couldn't take it seriously.

    1. Yeah, sadly, I know too many people who still drink and drive. I don't go out with them anymore, partly because I don't drink and just don't find it fun to go to bars, but mostly because I just can't witness such stupid behaviour. I have no patience for that shit.

      I know. There are a legit few makeup artists on YouTube who know what they're doing but then there are some that I question why people put so much trust in. People have to realize the difference between makeup artists and makeup enthusiasts. I think it bothers me more because I have people requesting certain looks and specific products used by YouTubers and I'm like, "You realize that you're about six shades darker than that YouTuber, right? If I use that product, it will look like paste on you."

      I didn't mind 50 Shades as entertainment, and I thought the movie was a good adaptation of the book (maybe even better because it's less repetitive; there's only so many times you can use the word "heady"), but I don't think the franchise as a whole is meant to be taken seriously, lol.
