You should wear tao's clothes. Like some ipath sneakers, levis jeans, a short sleeve button up, and an awkward smirk. I think that would be funny. Or a taco suit.

sarahspy said...

hi i just wrote 2, but i meant 11. sorry!

tomhanks said...

@everyone: thank you for voting and for saying nice things about my clothes/my body in clothes

pretty sure this is most comments i've ever received and i think all of them are either neutral/informative or say nice/funny/benignly supportive things

feeling some big time positive vibes about this comments section right now

surfing the posi-ass comments wave

brain is morphing into a 200pt. font :) emoticon

am now going to @ specific things, if i didn't address a thing then i probably thought something along the lines of what i just wrote above this sentence about your comment:

@Acissej Iksworob: jesus, just figured out who you are, hi jess :)

@matthew it does seem comfortable

@alli Sams: not sure how/why

@itchytooth: i thought the muumuu thing too

@Anonymous 1: pretty sure i was smirking/grinning awkwardly in most photos

@Samuel Mark Reynolds: wish i had thought of that in advance and maybe ordered, seems really funny

@Sarah H: it's actually tao's shirt. i have the 'retarded faggot' one, you can borrow that if you want

@Anonymous 2: thanks for the encouragement, have been considering making one for awhile, might do that tomorrow if i finish all the shit i told myself i would

@david fishkind and @steveroggenbuck: seems unexpected/funny to me that you guys both voted 9...you guys and 'matthew'...3 guys in support of flannel...not unlike the 90's band 'nirvana'...

tomhanks said...

going to post some negative comments:

way to wear belted dresses, asshole

way to make creepy faces, asshole

way to wear ponytails, asshole

way to be carles, asshole

way to use single quotes, asshole

way to not be able to call single quotes 'scare quotes' without using scare quotes, asshole

way to have a contest on your shitty blog you never update, asshole

way to be in nylon for some reason, asshole

way to be an asshole, asshole

maybe #1 or #4, or #5 if you want to be hard--

Anonymous said...

i saw you walking on 23rd street the other day... honestly felt like "OH SHIT it's megan boyle!!" in my head, like the same thing i would think if i saw will smith. didn't have the guts to say anything to you. you seemed happy and on a mission to do something important.
