Even Bimbos Can Use These!

Wanted to post something before 2010 came to an end, but didn't have much to discuss, since I am still quite sick. I hope everyone had a wonderful year, and if you didn't, I WISH that your 2011 will be the best year you've ever had! Keep track of this blog, as I hope to have more discussions soon!

Anyway, as to the posted caption, I posted this mostly because I was looking through stats and noticed that people are actually looking at this blog through the Nintendo Wii and Playstation 3 among other things. There are so many more options to surf the web now, and since I'm not a fan of Apple, I just HAD to post this caption I made for Lyndee awhile back. "It is so easy, even a bimbo can use it!" should be their new sales pitch!

DISCUSSION QUESTION: We are going to have an open discussion here. Any questions you'd like to ask me pertaining to captions I've made or just random thoughts? Post away!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

I've been VERY sick for the last week. I'd wanted to post 1-2 a week, or at least ONCE a week, but this virus has taken a ton out of me, including robbing me of my voice yet again. I will also be home by myself as I'm not able to travel the 3+ hours each way like we normally do (plus one family member is going through chemo and I don't want them to even SNIFF what I have.) It sucks but I'll deal. Perhaps that time alone will help me truly rest, and not get all antsy that I'm not doing something productive.

Anyway, I am up over 50 followers now, and even though a fraction contribute with comments, I am very content. I want this blog to grow organically and it is doing just that. Viewing TG captions as more than just spank material is what I am trying to accomplish. Sure it turns people on, but I like going further than just the shiny alluring surface. Its the mindframe of the creator, how that creator adapts the story to the recipient, the pictures chosen and why, what part should be focused on, plot development, etc ... that all leaves me curious and made me ask if others felt the same way.

I guess that is why I love "bootleg" recordings of musician "scratch tracks", live versions, and unfinished demo / unreleased recordings. Even recording acts I'm not a big fan of. There is a bootleg album from the Beatles, and its about 50 minutes of Strawberry Fields Forever. Starting at the acoustic demo and from there, it gets fleshed out to the full version. I am not even a fan of that song, but I can listen and see the levels being added and appreciate the vision as its coming from the collective heads to the recording tapes. Sometimes, I'll get some unreleased songs from a band I do like and say, "why didn't they release THAT on the CD instead of " when to me, its obvious they left the best song off the damn disc (or their record company did). In 2010 though, bands let the listener inside much more so than in the past.

This is how I feel about this blog, and I'm glad that we've got 50+ people on board. I've noticed that some people are detailing more of their creative process when posting captions to their sites. BRAVO! I can only see the caption from my own perspective, to add the creators (and recipients) take on the same caption makes me understand everything better.

DISCUSSION QUESTION: When the end of the year comes around, are you more or less likely to view/create TG captions? Some people have a much busier end of year time and can't find the time. Others need to escape from the duties that the end of the year provides, and use TG captions to escape. Which side do you fall under?

Dee is always right!

This is to follow up on Petra's comment that she will often use body shots without a head when working on sissy and realistic captions. That brought to mind this caption I made a few weeks ago for Samantha1 and the reception it received.

I've done this style caption before, and I don't mind using the transformation technique over and over. I call it the salesman behavior modification system. In general, a salesperson wants you to see the same things they do, and vice versa. Anytime a potential client says YES, they are step closer to doing what you want them to do, People tend to like to (1) agree with others, and (2) be positive. Guiding them to YOUR conclusion, and avoiding negative responses is imperative. They never want you to say the word NO.

What I did in this caption is solve a series of problems for Sam. Each time, I've lowered his resistance to my suggestion since they seem to work. If you notice at the end, he has no idea how the black dress is going to work, but seems resigned to find out afterwards. There is no resistance in actually WEARING the dress.

If you haven't seen it by now, this sales technique is very similar to hypnosis techniques. Usually, a good Domme will use this methodology in subtle ways. Think about THAT the next time you go to buy a car, large screen TV, or some other luxury item

Discussion Question: Would you be more susceptible to the "positive guidance" technique that I used in the caption above, or some other form of control? Does that figure into what type of controlled change you prefer in captions made for you? For creators, do you think of the psychology of the caption and the characters in it?

Still too competitive!

Not sure that many people will like this caption, but I think I did a good job of fulfilling Steffimarie's preferences. She doesn't particularly like magic, and trends towards sissy type captions. Its not quite my forte, but I think I've done a fair share of decent ones.

The main reason I like this one is I used a male trait to ensnare the "victim" into being more feminine. Often men can be incredibly competitive, and Ronald is willing to be even more femme than what his wife is making him do, IF the endgame is winning. Even when the winning involves a "sissy beauty pageant". If anything, he'll probably realize how wrong he was to do this, and probably feed further into his wife's plans. I mean, if he wins HERE, there must be more competitions to enter, and further training to undergo.

I came up with the story by finding this picture. none of the models are particularly busty, and could possibly be considered sissy males after some intense dieting. Ronald himself looks like there is a VERY slight bulge in the swimsuit bottoms which could be a tad bit humiliating as well. I mean, not even having to TUCK? I think it was the look on the middle girls face that really made the caption. The look that Ronald was probably more femme than him sealed the story in my opinion. That and the "innocent bystanders" in the background, watching each sissy parade around in swimwear.

DISCUSSION QUESTION: Does the picture make the story better, as it is pretty realistic in my opinion, or should I have used a bustier and more feminine styled pageant picture? I don't find any of the models particularly attractive, but as was mentioned in an earlier post, I like to think that this made the caption more grounded in reality, since there was no element of magic involved.

The "Lost" Artifact

This is one of the newest captions I've created, and I'm not quite sure if I like it or not. The reason I say this? Well, I've been known to be vague in fleshing out the transformations, with an alarming deficit when it comes to back story, but I'm not sure if this is the most "blank-slate" caption I've ever done.

I say blank slate, because when I was looking at comments people posted about it on the haven, I reread the caption. If it wasn't posted at a TG site, and for someone that had posted TG preferences, would you even KNOW it was a TG caption? Perhaps I've taken for granted, and for the sake of brevity, not given enough "content" for the story to be delivered.

DISCUSSION QUESTION: I believe in the intelligence of the reader and try not to (1) talk down to them, and (2) assume that they are in on whatever inside knowledge is necessary to enjoy the caption. I think that everyone knows of the archetypes inherent in all most/TG captions, which gives me the leeway to omit, or completely deconstruct the basic structures within them. Do you think that this caption is too wide-open, or is the story not that hard to follow? I was hoping that the general idea and plot is there, but by leaving some of it loose, that most people can add it up on their own, which would make the caption a bit more universal.
