This is your brain .. this is your brain en femme .. any questions?
When I visited Kaitlyn's blog site this morning, I was intrigued by this particular caption, which was in the form of a Public Service Announcement aka a PSA. When I was a radio DJ, we occasionally had to read one of these things, or play a pre-recorded one, and we used to call them Pissers, cuz they took all the fun and jocularity out of the show. Nothing like a good old, "smoking while pregnant can lead to low fetal weight or premature babies," spot to get the party started!
She mentioned possibly making more, and truth be told, I wanted in on the action! Well, especially since my mind started playing 2 of the most famous PSA's of the 1980's. One was the, "this is your brain on drugs, any questions?" commercial, and the other I referenced in today's caption. Its such a product of the late 80's and early 90's. We'll quote it in the household at least once a month. "Sweetie, who taught you to swear like a sailor?" "From YOU Dad. I fuckin' learned by listening to you!"
The hardest thing about making the caption was finding a suitable picture that would work. I wanted to find a androgynous guy on a bed, so I could try to recreate the commercial as best I could. I knew I wouldn't be able to find a dad holding up lingerie in front of his son who is drumming on a bed, so I searched until I found the best photo I could find. This one worked out perfectly .. and it wouldn't have shocked me if I came up with the idea for this caption if I saw this picture first.
From what I hear, Miss Simone is gong to do a PSA or two as well. Perhaps tonight, but she really likes to make sure they are polished, and her design takes much more work than what I do, so be on the lookout for it when its posted! Sounds like its going to be a lot of fun to read!
Apparently, Caitlyn enjoyed Simone and my PSA so much she made her own which you can see HERE! Its like a tidal wave of PSA captions! If you are a TG captioner out there, why don't YOU try and make one too! Join in the fun!
So, I guess I can start with the Christmas songs now, right? Nah, but here's a video from a band that WILL have one of their Christmas songs posted here in the next week or so!
If the government could read my mind, they'd know I'm thinking of you!
