She Is Going To Ruin That Pretty Shirt

So it seems that with blogger's fuck up it has either re posted or deleted everyone's last post on their blog. Yay, I get to rewrite everything I've written again, thankfully it was a tiny blog post.

I was checking out My Food Looks Funny and noticed two pictures that were being compared because they looked similar. However one of them absolutely repulsed me while I was entranced by the other. I have no clue why also.



And then the other one



You'd think it would be the second one that would make my stomach churn, but it wasn't, it was the first. Despite the fact that Bjork looks like she's birthing a Cthulu/Zalgo hybrid out of her mouth, I love it.

I've been mulling it over and I know what's not making me hate the first pic. It's not the amount or the type of food being shown, nor is it the color. It's not even really the way the food is being handled or the fact that she is going to need some serious dry cleaning after her little pasta feast. I just can't pinpoint it.

The only thing I can really think of is the fact that the second one looks more artistic while the first is a blatant and kind of stupid way to sell clothing.

Am I the only one seeing this? Or does anyone else get simultaneously repulsed and intrigued by the sets of photos.

  2. I'm with you on this one. The first one really creeps me out in a nausea inducing way (which could in part be down to her fingernails..and maybe the fact she's holding the spaghetti in her hands...with all tht jewellery?). Is that really selling clothes? Really??

    I actually quite like the Bjork one. It's like it's on freeze-frame and I want to see what happens next...

  3. JessJess-Truth be told, I keep forgetting. :(

    Elk-I didn't think of it that way, perhaps that could explain my aversion.

  5. The first one seems vaguely pornographic in a sell something kinda way, the second one is more artistic, yes, and eerie in a saint's prayer card kind of way.

    Erik- You may have hit the nail directly on the head. Bjork, patron saint of batshit crazy.
