Amanda Palmer & The Young Punx With Peaches – Map Of Tasmania

Here’s a definite break from the norm.  I ran into this while link hopping on YouTube.  I liked it and I thought you might too.

A Brief History Of Women Shaving

1915: Most men are already shaving.  Razor companies go in search of new customers.  Women are targeted using advertisements of women in sleeveless dresses, with raised arm revealing shaved armpits.  Suddenly, to be sexy, or even classy, armpit hair on a woman was unacceptable.  Razor companies get richer and women’s self esteem takes a hit.

Nude Armpits Tonite Only

1930’s-1940’s: Dress lengths got shorter and shorter.  Pin-up models became more popular, including prestigious murals on the sides of WWII aircraft.  The expectations of hairless legs was in full swing by the early to mid 40’s.  Razor companies continue to get richer as more and more women buy into the idea of shaving.

1980’s-1990’s: Pornographic movies go mainstream with the advent of the VCR (Video Cassette Recorder).  Pubic hair gets shorter, begins to shrink and before long is gone altogether.  Never before, nor more directly, has sex sold an idea.  Women’s shaving products get boosted to a whole new level.  The rich razor companies get richer.  The poor women are left to contend with cuts, razor burn, itchy/irritating stubble, ingrown hairs and humiliation if they don’t live up to these new standards imposed by society.  Next stop—WAXING!?!?

I like that line in the song “if it get too bushy, you can trim”.  😉  Love yourself, ladies’, just as nature intended.

“Map Of Tasmania” Lyrics

(Oh my God – again)
They don’t play the song on the radio
(Oh my God – again)
They don’t play the song on the radio
(Oh my God – again)

They don’t play the song on the radio
They don’t show the tits on the video
They don’t know that we are the media
They don’t know that we start the mania
Your eyes don’t want to see what I’m making you
Your ass is off its seat and I’m shaking you
Walking down the street I’m the lady – ah –
Showing off my map of Tasmania

(Oh my God – again)
(Oh my God – again)

Soft and sweet and shaped like a triangle
Some girls want no shape and they shave it all
That’s so whack, it hurts with the stubble
Walking ’round and look like an eight-year-old
Soft and sweet and shaped like a triangle
Some girls want no shape and they shave it all
That’s so whack, it hurts with the stubble
Walking ’round and look like an eight-year-old

I say grow that sh*t like a jungle
Give ’em something strong to hold onto
Let it fly in the open wind
If it get too bushy, you can trim

They don’t play the song on the radio
They don’t show the tits on the video
They don’t know that we are the media
They don’t know that we start the mania
You eyes don’t want to see what I’m making you
Your ass is off its seat and I’m shaking you
Walking down the street I’m the lady – ah –
Showing off my map of Tasmania

My map is symbolic
It get drunk a lot
Hey, does that make it an alcoholic?
Call it M.O.T. for short
Let’s take this bottomless case straight to the court
Freedom down there, i swear, do you see me smirkin’?
Do you see me wearing a merkin ?
Get in the formation let start
Triangle jerkin’
Triangle jerkin’

(Oh my God – again)
Showing off my map of Tasmania
(Oh my God – again)
Showing off my map of Tasmania
(Oh my God – again)
Showing off my map of Tasmania
(Oh my God – again)
Showing off my map of Tasmania

(Oh my God – again)
(Oh my God – again)
Showing off my map of Tasmania

    Different, yes. Normal, no! I hope that didn’t come with a rash. 😉

    That lady looks like a man!

    Are you talking about the singer? No she doesn’t. The bald guy dancing next to her does, but she doesn’t.

    Any thoughts on the song/video itself?
