Q-Tip: Keeping it Old Skool


The words that enlighten the soul are more precious than jewels.
~Hazrat Inayat Khan

Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
~James Baldwin

Remember yesterday, but live for today.

1. Transformer ~Gnarls Barkley
2. Torture Me ~RHCP
3. Ghetto Musick ~Big Boi (Outkast)
4. My Doorbell ~The White Stripes
5. Moment of Clarity ~Jay Hova

This an homage to a seemingly mundane hygiene product.

Who doesn't love that feeling of swabbing out the ear? For me it borders on orgasmic. Okay well that maybe taking it a little too far, but seriously it is one of the best feelings. I know I'm not supposed to do it every morning, but something wouldn't seem right if I didn't. I know you're only supposed to go around the outside part of the ear and not in the ear-hole, but c'mon that thing just begs to be stuck in and twirled a lil' bit. Oh Q-tip how I love thee, you're as hi-tech as you'll ever be, but yet still reach maximum efficiency. In this day and age of 5-Bladed, vibrating razors (yes there is a 5 blader out there), power stripes on deodorant, and tooth brushes with built in polish and tongue scrapping capabilities, the Q-tip stays old skool.

So versatile too, can be used for art projects, and cleaning electronics!! The best are the original with the sturdy cardboard/paper stem. So go home and clean out ya ears son!

I also love this Q-Tip!

I also share your feelings for both varieties of Q-tips. Did you know the Q stands for Queens, where Q-tip is from? I only think you would care because for some reason I think you are from NY.

Anyway, quite unfortunate, his name is now Kamaal Ibn John Fareed (he converted to Islam)

"For me it borders on orgasmic"

that was one of my made-up words on Tara's blog- "Eargasm." I have one every time I swab- like a mini-orgasm.

Ready for action, nip it in the bud.
We never relaxin’, OutKast is everlastin’
Not clashin’, not at all
But see my nigga went to do a little actin’
Now that’s for anyone askin’
Give me one, pass em’
Drip, drip, drop... There goes an eargasm.

yeah, I've heard that...but I was using "eargasm" back in high school. All of these clever words were actually ones I made up- everyone uses my shit without thanking me. :-)
