Spinning Callista Heads!


UPDATE: The trend these days is to do profiles of Callista without interviewing her and without any new information. Politico did just that and managed to stretch it into three whole internet pages.

Take the yellow out of the hairlmet and put it in the teeth and it'll be spot on!!

Did Condoleeza ever see this blog? I think she did. Do you think Callista's facial expression would change if she saw it?

Matty Boy said...

Can an image be hypnotic and nausea-inducing at the same time?

I think we have our answer.

THIS is why you are the top blog on my bookmarks.

You are feeling very sleepy, sleepy....

You want to convert to Catholicism....

Alas, will the glory days of Callista soon be over? Newt has apparently fallen to third in Iowa...

Wow! This is just fantastic.

But, yes, I fear we may be nearing peak Gingrich, both Newt and Callista. I think that's the reason no one's actually bothered to sit down and talk with her: the Newt-train did not appear built for the long haul, so why not just regurgitate and speculate? So much easier than doing any actual work!

You need to post something to push the heads down the page. They are nauseous and I am nauseated by 'em.

Whoa, serious vertigo just now.

Recueillement

Sois sage, ô ma Douleur, et tiens-toi plus tranquille.
Tu réclamais le Soir; il descend; le voici:
Une atmosphère obscure enveloppe la ville,
Aux uns portant la paix, aux autres le souci.


Pendant que des mortels la multitude vile,
Sous le fouet du Plaisir, ce bourreau sans merci,
Va cueillir des remords dans la fête servile,
Ma Douleur, donne-moi la main; viens par ici,


Loin d'eux. Vois se pencher les défuntes Années,
Sur les balcons du ciel, en robes surannées;
Surgir du fond des eaux le Regret souriant;


Le soleil moribond s'endormir sous une arche,
Et, comme un long linceul traînant à l'Orient,
Entends, ma chère, entends la douce Nuit qui marche.

— Charles Baudelaire

Hope everyone saw Slate's insightful structural and chemical analysis of Callista's hair.

samael7 said...

That is an amazing article, jg. Brilliant. Favorte quote:

The color alone took three hours to achieve. Three hours of bleach and gloss and glaze and goop and my head being knocked about left and right. The gloss (or maybe it was the glaze?) burned my scalp; when I mentioned this, Pejman looked right at me and said, “Beauty tingles.”

Callista must be tingly all the time!

I have a question for you: may I use your spinning Callista heads in a project? You'll get full credit and a link to the finished result if you wish.

Matty Boy said...

Thanks, jg, good link.

The young lady got the color, but not the perfect immobile shape! Think of how much more time that is. I'm guessing at least an hour and God know how much product.

Peteykins said...

Sure, scriblerus, go for it.

What a fun article about Callista's hair. I'd do a post about it, but now it would be pointless since JG scooped me in the comments section of my own blog.

Note to JG: please don't do that. :(

jg said...

Peter: Sorry for the scoop. I'll email next time.

I always thought Callista as a Stepford wife, but the more I see of her the more I am convinced its actually a blow-up doll. One of the expensive ones with real hair and functional parts.
