Unabashed Mary Xmas: What Mama Wants #1

November 30th, 2010

The fine folks at Luxury Diva™ have made turbans über-accessible and affordable ($17.99) on  I know what you’re thinking but, no, I don’t want to wear them (unless I’m reenacting scenes from Postcards From the Edge).  I want the turban and the mannequin head.  And I want a bunch of them in all different patterns (the turbans) and ethnicities (the heads) until my house looks like the evil queen’s in Return to Oz.  

Unabashedly I-o-whattttt?

August 13th, 2010

Excuse the absence but I have just endured a relocation from Los Angeles to Iowa City, Iowa which is one of those places where even though it’s called Iowa City, you still have to specify that it’s in the state of Iowa and not like one of those mind-fuck Kansas City, Missouri type cities.

There’s so much I want to say about life here but just accept this image for now:

Bitch is giving up an open-toe, high-heel sandal + panty hose under cuffed short jeans combo complete with ankle bracelet.

Fuck Los Angeles.

Unabashedly Served: The Legends Ball

July 6th, 2010

I only participate in gay pride festivities in cities where gay visibility is needed.  I look forward to the future fag functions in my new home of Iowa City, Iowa, where hate groups à la Westboro Baptist Church still line the parade route using their inbred children as pawns.  LA, New York, San Francisco: count me out; I’m not interested in the fracas.

But then there are the subsets of the major cities’ festivals.  Black gay pride festivals take place in Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and this past weekend, Los Angeles Black Pride.  Among day trips to the beach in Malibu and dance parties downtown, one of the pinnacle events was The Legends Ball hosted by Mother Devine Chanel and Arnold Allure of House of Chanel and House of Allure, respectively.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, wiki it or rent Paris Is Burning, but be gone until you do so.  [Pics after the jump.]

Me: Word.

“For the most part entertainment irritates me because I don’t find it very entertaining: I find it annoying and stupid, boring and dull.  Uninteresting.” (03:36)

Unabashed Dream Deferred

May 1st, 2010

To be the only white female cast member on In Living Color.

You have to be in the back of the cast photo but you’re still the only funny cracker bitch.

Unabashed Crusader: Paul Mooney

I’m on another Paul Mooney kick again.  I love this man.  He is one of my comedic heroes.  Take four minutes and get familiar.

Unabashed Head Turn: Naomi Campbell

April 22nd, 2010

It’s just fun to provoke Naomi.  While the “thankyouverymuches” are good, the head turn at 00:18 is the best.
