I Think Our Blogs Are Dating

not to be ridiculously cutesy or anything, but Ish, who i'll officially call my boyfriend "fear of commitment" is asking for opinions about his professional headshot.

and i'm simply pointing this out 'cuz i know how opinionated y'all can be.

(yeah, hi, remember the mayonnaise?)

and since our blogs are dating and all, i thought i should make mention of it.

*returns to writing post about frightening plastic wrap*

  1. So which one do YOU like? I'm not thrilled with the top one where he looks like a mugger, and I do prefer the bottom one, but not the wrinkled forehead nor the outfit. But that's just me being hypercritical.

  2. Ish is a very attractive boy, I love both pics.

    You're a lucky girl, K :)

  3. He is attractive, but I think that he looks angry and unapproachable in the first one, not so much wry and sarcastic.

  4. it depends on the size of the photo. I'd like #1 better if it were an 8x10, but it just makes him look scowly and unhappy at 200x300 pixels. The other one isn't quite as good, but looks better when it's small.

  5. i'm torn. the top one, IMHO, screams: "I'm a comic and i'm trying to look different in my headshot." In the bottom one, I agree with your comment on his blog -- that the raised eyebrow thing looks like he's not sure if what he just said was funny.

    He's a good looking guy. I can't believe there's not a better one out of the whole shoot...

  6. he's got a little david ducovney thing going on in the lower one. I approve!

  7. OMG, totally david ducovney! I didn't think of it, but now that it's been said, I can see it so clearly!

  8. It's the mouth, that's what makes him look like david ducovney in the second pic.

  9. He's handsome! I can't give an opinion... he's too handsome. :)

  10. I think it depends on what kind of humor he does... think of your audience!

    I'm heart-broken Single older chick. You found a boy and you'll never be the same in my eyes.

  11. I don't like either. the first one is angryish, but you can't tell how cute he is in real life. (not that I know). The second one is goofy.

    he needs one straight on picture - no gimmicks. no smirky faces.

    Ish - You're cute!

  12. The first one is HOT in a Domish sort of way.AND It says "I may be a serial killer, but you still find me intriguing, don't you?" The second one is cute, and much better techinically speaking.

    I'm not thrilled with the photographer. The grey background is bad. It really should be white. The first pic is a sea of gray, his skintone is too similar to the background. He needs to POP and he doesn't. He does a bit more in the second one. Also the shirt in the first one is bad. More gray. Love love love the clothes in pic 2.

    Anyway, he's hot.

    very hot.

    And um since this is where I learned that Jew is a bad word. (um even though it is in the bible a whole lot) Do I risk banishment if I ask what Ish's ethic background is? Um not that I need to know this so that I can put up a personal that says WANTED Man of *insert Ish's ethnic background here* um or anything really.

    cause I would never do that.

  13. the second one has more character i think. just because you are a character doesn't mean you have character... it's a start though.

  14. I typically go more for tough guys so I like pic #1. The ringer tshirt is casual and nice...the second picture is ok but Im not crazy about the "whimsical" look on his face and the white shirt is too bright and that is all that I find myself looking at.

    Cute guy though. Love the shaved head.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like them both. He's a cutie!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like the first one. I don't get angry or unapproachable. I see more of a look of contemplation of "hmmmm, what do I say to that comment with out making him/her look like an idiot".

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ummmmm. they BOTH say STALKER to me.

    ReplyDelete
  18. can you date my blog too? it's lonely and hasn't gotten any action in a long time. lol

    ReplyDelete
  19. How can someone be a stalker if they are in a mutually welcomed relationship and their picture and welcomed comments are posted by the person they're dating? Just wondering. Willingly or not. Seems like we're the ones doing the stalking.

  20. first i have to say what a catch! i like the first the best but perhaps with just a bit less of a furrowed brow.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The first one looks like the look my dad gives me when I curse too much and he gets exasperated.

    I would make out with Ish#2, but not Ish#1. Not that that's on the table, but like... isn't that what headshots are mostly for?

    PS: collared shirt wins over ringer tee, any flipping day of the week.

  22. First, grow some hair! Dammit, as someone who doesn't have any, I get really annoyed at young guys who don't flaunt what they're capable of growing in such glorious abundance. There's plenty of time to look old when you get old. I can't wait for this Kojak/Brynner look to pass. Are you chicks all nuts?

    Second: is there a hole in his mirror? He seems to have missed shaving all the parts around his mouth. Make up your mind, Ish, do you want facial hair or not?

    As for the two pics, he looks like a nice guy in both of them. Now all he has to do is stop referring to himself in the third person. That way megalomania lies.

  23. Econoclast,

    Just one thing:

    I would grow some hair, IF I COULD.

    This ain't a fashion trend for me.

    ReplyDelete
  24. econoclast asks, Are you chicks all nuts?

    to which i must reply: are you actually asking me this question? because while i cannot speak for all chicks everywhere, i should think that by now it has been clearly illustrated that

    a. i love men with bald / shaven heads, and

    b. yes

    ReplyDelete
  25. Econoclast - can we see what you look like? 'Cause reading your blog, although very informative and obviously knowledgeable...it's really not sexy. I'll take a young bald guy with a nice moustache/goatee who refers to himself in third person over boring, bland, non-creative, investment banker babble any day!! *big yawn*

  26. econoclast:
    you took the words right outta my mouth.

    'nuff said.

  27. If he's a comedian, his pic should be funny. And in color.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think both pics are very nice. But in the second one especially, maybe check those eyebrows!

    ReplyDelete
  29. He's so handsome in his photos. Lucky are you to have him and also him to have you as his girlfriend. Well no matter how handsome our man though the important thing that matters is that they're honest enough that though lots of girls flirting to him he is still devoted to his girlfriend because he loves her and he don't want to hurt her. That's the best boyfriend I could ever imagine.
