25 Songs, 25 Days: Day 12


Day 12:  The Last Song I Heard

I heard this song for the first time a few days ago while in the car and I could not stop laughing.  Oh, selfies.

Now, hear me out.  I’m not totally against all selfies.  If there is no one to pull the trigger to capture a moment, fine!  It happens.

But how many selfies can one person take of just themselves and it be healthy?  Please, layer on some makeup and put on your best duck face…everyone loves to see a different version of that every four hours on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, blah, blah, blah (because there are so many apps to support your perfect face display now).

I can’t imagine being so obsessed with yourself.  Granted, I’m on the other side of the spectrum.  I don’t wear make up and I don’t brush my hair on Sundays (at least).  Nine times out of ten, I haven’t looked in the mirror before I left the house so I have no idea what I look like (and it shows).  I was not born with the ability to match colors or patterns, so my clothing can sometimes appear creative … but really it is because I have no idea what I’m doing.  I don’t take myself that seriously.  This is what I look like, don’t like it move on.

And let me tell you young bucks something about selfies.  Back in the day when I was your age, you didn’t have a rear facing camera screen so you could see yourself!  You didn’t have special apps to touch yourself up!  You had to hope and pray that you were actually in the photo, then wait a week while your film was mailed out and the photos were shipped back to you!  Do you know how many photos I have seen of the top of our chins and that’s it?

Some 90’s selfie examples:




Now that shit is ratchet, bitches.

  1. I’m with you! Selfies are all well and good, but I remember 110 film like it was yesterday. Good song by the way!

  2. Okay, the funniest thing is that just yesterday morning Mr. T came in with that song playing so I could hear it! And just like then, I stopped as soon as she said “but first, let me take a selfie”. LOL. Had no clue it was a “song”, I just thought he found a funny clip!

    Now, I’m not opposed to a selfie and I’ve taken my fair share, but I get so irritated at those people that post half a dozen selfies a day! Because yes, we have forgotten what you looked like because it was a full 31 minutes since your last one!! UGH!!!

    And, I’m guilty of not brushing my hair and I seldom wear make up 🙂

  3. I just had a conversation with someone about taking selfies at the gym! I thought the point of a selfie was to show everyone how “totes adorbs” you are. If I took a picture of myself at the gym it would be hair matted to my head, sweat pouring down my face, beat red and screaming at the instructor that she is an evil nazi bitch and should die a horrible fiery death! BTW, definitely taking a selfie running that 10k tomorrow!!!!!

  4. Ok, that song was as annoying as selfies!! But maybe that was the point. On the upside, I heard a new song before my two teens did 😀
