i was discovered by an eye patch group — it was quite a thrill to get flooded by messages. thanks all for the comments!
i checked out the yahoo group: seems to be all about eye patches, mostly women who wear them. it was started by a man from japan. at first i wasn’t sure if it was some kind of fetish thing, but the moderator reassured me that everything went by him and it was legit.
this is what it said on the site:
it was created by Mr Yuuichi Shibuya in a attempt to create a group where people who wear eyepatches are considered intresting, intriguing and great looking! and not a freak like many people do.
right on mr. yuuichi shibuya!
things i learned on the site.
apparently there is a senator in colombia, named viviane morales who struts her stuff in a patch. unfortunately she lost the 2006 senatorial race. still i just love the lady pirate politician thing.
check out this music video by Smog: I Feel Like the Mother of the World.
it was posted recently on the yahoo group site — thought it was moving.
the eye injury seemed to be a metaphor of the damage that is being done to the earth. i never thought to apply this idea to me, but it surely makes me feel more important. this is chloe sevigny pretending to have an injured left eye. maybe she can play me in the movie version of my accident
