oh my word – i’m all for body piercing (i’ve got both of my nipples pierced along w/ my bellybutton and my neck…yes my neck…i know it does sound a bit odd but i really wanted to get pierced in a place most people don’t – i’ve had it for almost ten years now and i don’t see myself taking it out anytime soon) yes there’s a drop of pleasure in getting pierced but i certainly could not stand the pain from being hung from a bunch of hooks in stuck in my back – holy freakin’ cow – i feel faint just thinking about it! brave performance artist alice newstead was hung up in a lush window over in london for about fifteen minutes – helping to promote the store’s new line of ‘shark fin soap’ – a blue soap made with seaweed & sea salt with a cardboard shark fin sticking out the top…no sharks were harmed in the making of this beauty product (apparently sharks are hooked and killed just for their fins which supposedly contain magical properties) i get the statement the store was trying to make with their window display but i bet it turned off more people than it enticed – i do love lush products but they need to calm their asses down! popbytes over & out for tonight…xxoo

Alice’s performance is very reminiscent of what happens to sharks when they are caught. When they are caught the sharks are pulled from the water, their fins are sliced off, and they are kicked back into the ocean, so they sink to the bottom and suffer a slow death. Fins are the most lucrative part of the shark, which explains the massive escalation in the numbers of sharks killed in the last few years.
