Wow.. I am in the middle of this video and I must say: that flash of LA was amazing.

It escapes the standard format that exists in my mind of what a "diary video blog entry" should, or more accurately, should not be.

RE: your question, are you objectifying a woman?

no, what you conveyed to me was a sense of the cosmic hilarity the situation represents:

The idea of some random male drivin around steered by randomness in his machismo car with some random fictionalized, mythologized, downsized, enlarged, female image on the hood.

Its hilarious... when we are not mindful of the possible real-world consequences that objectifying any person or type of person can have.... but that's almost another issue.

re: freedom of expression

we are led to believe pornography is illegal. It is not. It really does have to do with free speech.

Many people would rather not see a graphic photorealistic image of genitals, for example, in a public place, where their little children wander. Is this a bad thing? I don't know. I do, however, strongly support the freedom of expression.

However, if you put a huge picture of a young persons image (nude), photorealistic, on your car, I'll make a bet with you that you will be brought to court.

while it is concievable/arguable that this is not an objectifiying image, it seems that one might recieve the idea that the message being sent by this car is "this is my ride and this is my bitch(or at least this is the bitch i would like to ride like my car)". is it goofy? yes. is it objectifying? sure seems like it to me.

anyway, video blog rules! soooo awesome, ryan!
