Thumbing through my LA Gay and Lezzie Film festival guide, I was forlorn to see a too-attractive wasp sitting at a typewriter wearing a white tee and Buddy Holly glasses with the word “HOWL” next to it and, moreover, the name “James Franco” under that. I say Goddamn! Put a hot guy in anything and gays will eat it up. Shit. Ginsberg wasn’t a hot Aryan, he was a handsome Jew. James Franco is a mere showpiece, a tart. Where’s Jeff Goldblum when you need him?

I hate the entire SATC franchise
I hate the acronym SATC
I hate the slutty one who was in Mannequin
I hate Carrie’s voice-overs
I hate New York City
I hate rich white bitches
I hate alleged fashionistas
Not all of us queens like this shit, okay ladies? Oh and while I’m on the topic: FUCK GLEE, TOO.
Now listen to Sandra B. explain why she turned down the role of Miranda:
THIS JUST IN from the New York Times re: Liza Minelli performing “All The Single Ladies” in SATC 2.
“Her version is in no way superior to the one in ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel,’ and it is somehow both the high point of ‘Sex and the City 2′ and a grim harbinger of what is to come.”
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…)
Ashaka is a character searching for identity, and subsequently, performing her idea of what black is based on television and media portrayals of black women.
Is Ashaka ignorant? Yes. Ashaka has a lot of learning to do. But bear in mind that she believes her transracial identity is every bit as valid as her transgender identity.
My goal was to depict a person who is haphazardly appropriating identities in an attempt to find herself. It’s about identity politics and identity performance.
But most of all, it’s fucking funny.
