Off topic: In love with a strict machine

This is not a post for children! In the past few days, there has been a vibrat*r theme in my life.

It started when I read an interview with Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria in Rolling Stone in which this exchange occurred:

RS: What’s the best sex you've had this year?
EL: Probably with my vibrat(r. I own two. I have the rabbit one, and I give that as a gift all the time. To other girls. For a birthday or the like. It's the best gift to give: an org*sm. And if I can't do it for ya, I'll give you the tools to succeed! I have one rabbit and a Pocket Rocket.


Then we saw Berman and Berman suggest the Pocket Rocket on their show. I guess you can find that at Good Vibes?

Then someone complained to me about crankiness due to a lack of batteries for their vibrat*r.

Finally I was in bed (alone!) replaying one of my favorite CDs of 2003, Goldfrapp's "Black Cherry" when I finally clued in to the song "Strict Machine" and its lyrics. I just had not been paying this much attention!

I get high on a buzz
Then a rush
when I'm plugged in you
I connect when I'm flush
You get love when told what to do

Wonderful electric
Wonderful electric
Wonderful electric
Cover me in you

I'm in love, I'm in love
I'm in love with a strict machine
I'm in love with a strict machine

When you send me a pulse
Feel a wave of new love
Through me
I'm dressed in white noise
You know just what I want
So please

Wonderful electric
Cover me in you
I'm in love, I'm in love
I'm in love with a strict machine

Everyone who loves kick ass electronic music should own that record. It's gorgeous and kinky and totally modern. Depeche? check. Bjork? check. Goldfrapp? check!

That’s all I have to say on this dirttty subject. Is it a sign that everyone should be buying these toys? Would there be less war if all the world leaders were too busy workin’ themselves over? These toys are everywhere if you look (and maybe you just can’t see them!). Just sayin’

Buzzz! buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

I don't suppose that is what the beach boys were singing about with "good vibrations"? (i don't wanna think about b.w. and a vibrator)

Wow, I'm really naive... I had no clue what that song was about! Awesome song, though.
