In the past few months I’ve been re-watching The L Word with a few of my best friends. I absolutely LOVE this show. It’s on my top 5 favorite TV series of all time. I love the way it’s written, the acting, the directing, the weird lesbian music…I love it all. The show is about a group of mostly lesbian women who live in LA and their relationships. There are solid characters and they all grow throughout the seasons so much. Plus, hot lesbian sex. Who knew I’d be so into it?
I know I’ve mentioned the Real L Word on here before, the reality spin-off, but there’s nothing quite like the original. It’s just so good. Do you watch? The women are simply beautiful. Which one is your favorite character? I’m probably mostly a Bette with some Shane phases. You should watch and find out what that means…
As you may or may not know, I love music artist Pink. I always have.
She stood out when she first came out as an R&B diva and then later unleashed her inner rockstar. Throughout the years I’ve enjoyed her music and her attitude. She’s just so no-nonsense and tough. It’s a fusion between feminine beauty and this sort of rough masculinity she exudes. I love how she’s open about her political views (check out the song she wrote for the president), her stance against conforming to a typical dumb bimbo or other stereotypes (yes, she’s a feminist), her efforts to promote empowerment, independence, strength, self-love and self-respect. She’s sexy and has killer lungs; she’s just an amazing vocalist. Her raspy belting is intoxicating. So yes, I’m a Pink fan.
Well! She released her newest music video for her latest single “Raise Your Glass.” Check it out:
**UPDATE: I think it’s great that Pink is pregnant! It was in the media that she and Christina Aguilera and Pink were friendly about being moms and even talked about setting up a playdate for the kids. Ugh. So cute. Also, it seems that VEVO doesn’t want the “Raise Your Glass” video on my blog, SO you can check out Pink’s video on YouTube 🙂
Let’s talk about lesbians! I love lesbians. I know that there’s this weird unspoken understanding that for some reason gays and lesbians don’t always mix well. Something about gays liking girly girls who like men and lesbians not feeling the flaming queens…but you know what? I say get over it, people!
We’re all gay and we should work together to educate the rest of the world.
So I’ve been watching Showtime’s “The Real L Word,” a reality spin-off of its popular lesbian drama “The L Word.” I absolutely LOVED the L Word. It’s by far one of my favorite shows of all time. I like how it’s written, the way it’s shot, the acting, the weird unknown music, the insight to lesbian culture, and the characters are so solid. I love it!
Well, I wasn’t so sure how I’d feel about a reality spin-off of the show. I mean, I love The Hills and other reality shows, but I wasn’t sure how this was going to work, exactly. Specially when originally the spin-off would be a drama about one of the main characters: Alice. Well, either way, I’m actually really enjoying The Real L Word. It’s a completely different show with a different feel, mainly because it’s unscripted.
At first I was trying to pinpoint who’s who in the show, then I realized that it’s not like The L Word, these women have their own personalities. I see fusions of different L Word characters in some of the women. They’re all cool and I like all the main gals. Plus, it’s so cool that they shoot in a lot of the places where I’ve been or hang out. It’s set in LA and you see places where I have had my own memories or drama or whatever (ahem, THE ABBEY).
So I give The Real L Word a thumbs up. It’s not like The L Word, so L Word fans, please don’t turn on me. It’s a separate idea and different tone to the flow of the show, but it’s cool. So watch!
Yesterday I finally got a chance to watch Inception. I have been wanting to watch this movie for a while. I was fascinated by the previews of the movie in the trailers and, actually, right after watching the first trailer my immediate thought was, “Damn, why wasn’t I cast in this movie?!” lol It just looks so cool! Visually stunning and such an intriguing idea.
I thought Leonardo DiCaprio did a great job as the leading man. I believed him. I was very pleased with the casting. To my surprise, Ellen Page wasn’t awkward or goofy or quirky at all. I thought her performance showed versatility and I think that’ll work in her favor. Plus, she’s super-cute! (Am I right, lesbians?) Yeah, for some reason the lesbians LOVE Ellen Page.
I thought the idea of dream layers were very cool and I found the action scenes to be quite suspenseful. I felt the acting was great and the directing was also great. There was a certain elegance to the photography. I just thought it was beautiful in all it’s weirdness. After hearing feedback from a few people, I was concerned I might feel confused after watching the movie, but it wasn’t very confusing at all. Everything made sense and I liked the ending. I felt like the director was flirting with me. lol
If you haven’t seen it already, you should check it out. One of the best movies I’ve watched this year.
