just got back from the strippers on a balmy, sleepy monday evening. thought: could stripping a direct derivative of meditation/buddhism? the disconnection, the abolishment of ego, the "everything means nothing" mentality. sure, it all revolves around money which certainly tears all of it down in one fell swoop but for the individual, for the mentality of the stripper, surely she is in a blissful place of nothingness at most points? plus they're super flexible... and can reach enlightenment despite the banging bass and distractions surrounding her. just a thought. either way, heck, that was fun.
