I like my floozies Frank-Miller style: red lipstick, red heels, sheer, skin-tight red dress. I get turned on during the finale of Brian De Palma’s Carrie. I am a sucker for gadgets in the Pantone spectrum Beschizza so luridly refers to as “whore red.” And I’m a sucker for the (PRODUCT) RED series of Apple products, with part of the proceeds going to fight AIDS in Africa. Sure, there’s something a bit morbid about buying an iPod in the precise shade of healthful hemoglobin coveted by some unlucky, HIV-positive Zimbabwean, but it satisfies both my gadget lust, a sliver of my conscience and the monotonous obsession that drove me to paint my kitchen the same color as an end-of-day abattoir… an interior design choice with the unfortunate side effect of making me commonly mistake the bottle of V8 in the fridge for milk and slashing it all over my morning Count Chocula, which isn’t really a good gastronomic combination no matter how much you might love each individually… and hey, wasn’t that a hell of a sentence: welcome to the end of it.
But I digress. Rumor has it that Apple will be releasing a (PRODUCT) RED iPhone 3G model around Christmas time. I will try to buy it, if I can hold out that long. That is all.
