!! OMG, Loop Dreams: Sundance Short, ‘The Roper’ !!


When I was a little sprog and finally put down my older sisters’ neglected dolls, I watched City Slickers with Billy Crystal, and then stole my mom’s washing line to make lassos.
Kendrick “Luck” Domingue is the brown version of that: he’s better, with more skill, and a shit load more patience. This short for Sundance 2013 profiles Kendrick and his dream of making the Rodeo Finals in Las Vegas, and is currently being developed into a feature-length under the working title “Rookie”.
It’s inspiring how this kid deals with racial judgement, believing his dream is more important than other peoples’ old-fashioned judgements. Makes me want to pick up my washing-line lasso again and lasso…erm, stuff.

!! OMG, All that Jazz: Barbara Walters meets Jazz !!


I have a bit of a problem with term “gender identity disorder”: There is so much apparent love and support amongst Jazz’ family and friends, it’s hard to look at her situation as ‘disordered’.
Barbara Walters asks Jazz about the potential problems facing her when it comes to dating, now she is growing up:

“If any of the boys decline me based on my situation then I just know they are not right for me. At all”

I love that Barbara says “pooberty”, I imagine this is like when you grow pubes and poop at the same time ? Cute !

!! OMG, executive realness: OUT TV’s ‘Ladyboys’ !!

Yollada Suanyot_300512afamilyDSChuyengioi1_9ed8f.jpg
I started watching OUT.TVs ‘Ladyboys’ series yesterday morning and I’ll be watching the second half tonight. Being a British documentary, they tend to edit it as though they are talking about gap-year kids at an Ibiza foam party, but still I find some of the interviews are quite lovely.
My favourite [not a ladyboy, she’s a woman, since 19 years old] lady is Yollada Suanyot [pictured]. She serves up EXECUTIVE REALNESS 24/7 and she’s stunning, and I’d buy all that QVC-style tack she’s selling if she told me too. It’s disappointing to hear that currently, Thai law does not permit even those who have had gender-reassignment surgery to obtain legal status as woman:

“My mind is not wrong, my mind is correct, but my body is wrong…don’t ask me about the thing that makes my heart hurt”

Uuuuurrggghhh…that makes my heart hurt too : (
Hop down below to watch parts 1 & 2

!! OMG, WE defo DO: Campaign for Southern Equality !!


“The South will rise again”, no I’m not talking about crazy Fox-fed Confederates with bayonets, this is the Campaign for Southern Equality’s WE DO Campaign.

I am lucky enough to live some place where my marriage is recognised, so it breaks my crumbly, flakey heart to see them old lez-ladies walk up to the counter and get denied their marriage license. It’s simply not fair. I think it’s inhumane treating gays like they are second-class citizens in the twenty-first century.

You can send a wee message of support right HERE…and hopefully some time soon they’ll be able to go back to the counters and say “WE DO!” [or “we doodoo” if they get real excited and can’t quite get the words out]

OK. Forget Bagel-heads, ie, an attempt to make it look like you went to bed all normal looking and woke up with BREAKFAST-IN-HEAD. Well before bagel-heads Japanese singer Shoko Nakagawa took to popping cicadas all over her head in all manner of styles:
CICADA BANGS
CICADA BONNET
and my fLavourite…CICADA TUMBLE-CHEST-BROACH!
