Willie's Off-Brand Web Journal: May 4-May 10, 2004

Wednesday, May 5, 2004:

I have a theory, and I've tested this hypothesis enough times that I think it can now be considered a scientific law. I posit that Jennifer Garner is seen as exceptionally glamorous and pretty ("luminous," "gorgeous," etc.) by gay men and straight women, whereas straight men really don't care one way or the other about her. Every straight woman and gay man with whom I've spoken has expressed an appreciation of her physical beauty- if perhaps not thinking she's exceptionally talented in the artistic discipline she's chosen for herself- but every straight male I've asked has given an answer no more enthusastic than, "She's cute, I guess." Bear in mind that these particular straight men are generally very forthcoming with their attraction to female public figures, so I have no reason to suspect they're holding back for any reason here.

The one and only aberration I've come across occurred at work today. After polling Aimee, who cheerfully affirmed her belief that Garner is remarkably comely, I shared my theory with her. She mentioned to Jon and me that one of our straight male coworkers has "a thing" for Garner. Without naming names, this particular coworker is, shall we say, perhaps not the choosiest fellow in all the land. He's the sort of guy who, six years ago, likely made it a point of pride to know exactly how many days were left until Britney Spears turned eighteen, and once that occurred, quickly shifted his focus to the Olsen twins and, now that they're almost eighteen, will surely initiate a similarly creepy countdown to the day Dakota Fanning will be legal. Or, to put it in Jon's terms, "he'll fuck anything that moves." I personally think this is a bit unfair, in that I suspect motion might not be a prerequisite. At any rate, my admittedly miniscule faith in the inherent goodness of mankind is enough for me to disqualify him on the basis that I think (or at least hope) that he is not representative of the average straight male population. To the bluenoses who would suggest that I disqualified this individual merely because he gave an answer contrary to my theory, I promise you that (a) my personal distaste for him is such that I would never willingly include him in any study, regardless of whether his data suited my needs, because I am an immature young man, and (b) I view this as no different from disqualifying, say, a straight woman who punctuated her confirmation that she finds Garner attractive by greedily consuming a live seagull. These people are quite obviously insane.

For my part, Garner reminds me of one of those carnival games where you use an air cannon to knock the teeth out of the giant clown's mouth. That's not to say I wish to inflict any sort of dental harm upon her, of course; just that her appearance has too goofy an association in my mind to strike me as appealing.

(1) What physical qualities does Garner possess that set the hearts of gay men a-flutter and leave straight women standing in slippery little puddles, while eliciting nothing more than vaguely favorable apathy from straight men? How would lesbians react to her? Morrissey?
(2) Would Catch Me If You Can have sucked any less had Garner's brief appearance been dragged to the "Cutting-Room Floor" folder on the iBook that served as the film's editing room?
(3) Which Olsen twin do you suspect will first wind up in rehab?
(4) Does this Willie fellow truly believe that he is funny or clever? How much does "irony" factor into the equation? How much of this post is reaction formation?
(5) What's the difference between Alias and Dark Angel?

CURRENT MUSIC: That gigantic random collection of MP3s from yesterday. This is going to keep me amused for a good long while. While I typed this, I heard "Within the Orderly Life" by Pulseprogramming, "What's the #?" by Apples in Stereo, "Sforzande!" by Sebadoh, "Chicago New York" by Aislers Set, "Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down" by Uncle Tupelo, "Guelah Papyrus" by Phish, "Tomorrow Plus X" by Man... Or Astro-Man?, "Underground" by Tom Waits, "Mamma Mia" by ABBA, "Lowlands" by Gillian Welch, "Wayfaring Stranger" by Johnny Cash, "All Our Base are Belong to Them" by The Books, and "The River" by PJ Harvey.
Blinded with science.

Tuesday, May 4, 2004:

For fun, Adrian Denning suggested that everyone on Music Babble should open the entire playlist of MP3s we each have saved on our computer, randomize them in a program such as MusicMatch Jukebox, and then see what the first ten songs happen to be.
