Unabashedly L.GAY: Coming to an LA Gay/Les Center Near You

December 30th, 2009

The LA Gay & Lesbian Center aka the House of Hues aka the El Gay aka the the (Yes I) WILLtern aka the Club (I never say) NOkia–is THE performance venue for all of our most treasured queer legends.  And I DO use that term loosely.

screen-3_014I was tardy in reporting one of the funniest queens this side of Anaheim, a one Miss Leslie Jordan, who was performing her one woman show, Full of Gin and Regret.  Look her ass up on the google-net, facebook her, suck her dick and receive $75 or a new pair of sneakers.

Have no fear cause the queen of quirk, our very own Major Tom Space Oddity, Miss Beth Lapides (Lah-pee-dis) is beaming into the Renberg Theatre on Saturday, January 9, for one-night of her solo show, 100 % Happy 88% of the Time.

Bethy started out on those mean, penis-centric Hollywood comedy club stages back in the day and DID THINGS HER WAY…  bethlHer UN-CABARET comedy workshops provided me a soothing environment, not unlike Desitin on a fat lady’s thighs, in which to get my start speaking my gay mind to the peoplez.  And look where I am now!  I got a blog, some videos on YouTube, and just filled out $755 worth of grad school applications.  Don’t hate the player, hate the game, y’all.

Speaking of PLAYAS…don’t nobody fuck with the real queen bee…whew jenifer_lewis_actresslawdy my fingers are on fire just typing her name, MISS JENIFER LEWIS, as I live and breathe.  She started out on Broadway as one of Bette Midler’s Harlettes and has since become known as the black mother of Hollywood.  She sings, she acts, she dances…she holds nothing back; just the way we like it.  So definitely see her show, HOT FLASH, this February.

An Unabashed Queer Moment

December 27th, 2009

I got pulled over by a cop today and dude asked me why I seemed irritated.  I asked him if it was against the law to be irritated.  It isn’t.fuck-the-police

Unabashedly Funny Lady: Cheri Oteri

December 22nd, 2009

Cheri Oteri, where have you been, funny lady?  If it hadn’t been for the local video store’s closing blowout DVD sale, I might have forgotten your comic genius.


b. murph: was it my fault?

December 20th, 2009

tv-animation-11I was literally–no joke–singing the praises of Brittany Murphy not 12 hours ago…and I wake up to find out she died this morning.  This is the first celebrity death of 2009 that makes me sad and B. makes me nervous that the entire casts of the Real Housewives of Atlanta and New Jersey are going to die because I was talking about them last night, too.  God, you can have all of them EXCEPT Kandi.

Unabashed RIP: The Ghost of NMH Past

December 17th, 2009


Upon receiving the news that the Northfield campus of Northfield Mount Hermon School would be sold, NMH alums (which includes me) were promised that the Northfield campus would go to something GOOD…NOT GOD.

I came to terms with the sale of the Northfield campus a few years ago.  But to pound another nail in the cross, the campus has been sold to a crazy fanatical right-wing Christian company named fuckin’ Hobby Lobby.  The campus is going to be turned into the home of  C.S. Lewis College, a school named for the author of the Lion, Witch and whatever novels.  Read their mission statement:

The College will be rooted in the historic Christian faith and so structured as to ensure its fidelity to that profession. It will be characterized by a firm commitment to “Mere Christianity,” and therefore be inclusive of Christians of all traditions. In the spirit of C.S. Lewis, the envisioned college will actively encourage opportunities to discover the vitality and profound relevance of the Christian faith as it is lived openly within the larger pluralistic setting of mainstream colleges and universities (more…)

Unabashed Blue Collar Fashion Show: Roseanne

December 15th, 2009

A dream come true:




Roseanne, Roseanne, Roseanne.  I live for the show.  I watch the same episodes over and over and glean something new every time.  GOD, I LOVE ROSEANNE.  I dare say it’s the best sitcom ever (minus the last two seasons).

Enough about me…Third and Delaware provides a thorough herstory of the  fashion of Roseanne as created by genius costume designer, Erin Quigley.
