Celebrity Skin ... Return of the iBod!

The freaks come out at night!

Made this a few years ago for Jaime, as I was making a caption for Caitlyn. She got an iBod caption with lyrics from Courtney Love, who is a godsend for TG captions with her fractured word stylings, seemingly made for gender fuck play. I was listening to Celebrity Skin while writing yesterday's post, and figured, "I don't THINK I've posted this caption yet. Why not?" Both her and Kurt Cobain seemed to inhabit a relatively gender neutral wavelength, and she often seemed to have the balls of a bull while he had that delicate vulnerability while screaming out RAPE ME! They were definitely an interesting couple ... probably my generations Sid and Nancy.

This caption also led to the discussion in the last post, over whether people like innocent person vs bad jerks getting transformed. This one definitely falls into the innocent bystander, but as I mentioned in the comments section, who's to say that John's life isn't better off now that he isn't so sheltered?

She has another song that I never worked into a caption, but many of the words do fit a TG caption.Its called "Reason to be Beautiful". It most likely has do do with her coping with Kurt's suicide, but when I pull out verses, it does take on a different sort of viewpoint.

Oh, give me a reason to be beautiful
So sick in his body so sick in his soul
Oh give me one reason to be beautiful
Oh and everything I am

Miles and miles of perfect skin
I swear I do, I fit right in
My love burns through everything
I cannot breathe
Miles and miles of perfect skin
I swear, I said, I fit right in
I fit right in your perfect skin
I cannot breathe

Hey, baby, take it all the way...down
Hey baby taste me anyway
Oh you were born
So pretty oh summer babe
We'll never know
And fading like a rose....

Give me a reason to be beautiful
So sick in his body so sick in his soul
I'll give you my body just sell me your soul
Oh and everything I am will be bought and sold
Oh and everything I am will turn hard and cold

And they say in the end
You'll get bitter just like them
And they steal you heart away
When the fire goes out you better learn to fake
It's better to rise then fade away

DISCUSSION QUESTION: I know I've been doing a lot of musical influenced caption posts lately. What would YOU the readers like to see next? Its a new year so I'm pretty much up for anything! I will be working on the next Haven Quarterly on Saturday, so if you have any magazine advertising styled ideas, let me know!


  1. Love the iBod cap. And I remember the cap you are talking about as that was a lot of fun... almost three years ago now!

    I'm not sure what else I'd like to see... I'm really digging the music inspired caps. I've tried to make a few caps based on songs, but I don't feel that any really ever turned out, so it's nice to see ones that DO work.

    Well... after giving it a bit of thought... we've talked before how we think of 'Bimbo' differently. How about some good Bimbo caps?

  2. Love the idea behind this caption. Well done, Dee!

  3. I think there must be a repressed slut in me. Girls like her just get me going so bad!!
