Um, hi. I realize this might be construed as rude to post during the Holidays, and I also know that not a lot of people--including liberals--like PETA. But. A lot of people DO like Project Runway, lol, and Tim Gunn has worked as a sort of liason between PETA and the fashion industry for years. And no one can deny that fur, as used in our first-world fashion industry, is cruel.

WARNING: If you are sensitive to violence against animals, this will make you vomit. I mean it. BUT Tim is so great, and I think it's something we need reminding about every so often.

The closing line is brilliant, so close your eyes if necessary in order to get through the whole thing. But listen. And stay aware.

Tim Gunn's PETA video.

Celebrations in Seattle: Posse's on Broadway, indeeeeeed. [Nov. 9th, 2008|11:53 am]

The context here is that a) Seattle is liberal and b) Seattle is generally apathetic. 'Seattle', in this case, meaning the actual city, NOT Bellevue or Redmond or Boeing or Microsoft but the Queen Anne Hill and Capitol Hill and Belltown neighborhoods, populated by large groups of young, hip, trendy, often-queer, beautiful, consumerist people, who pay too much for rent and way, way too much for martinis and all have A Purpose. The Stranger is their newspaper, that reflects in its simultaneous love and loathing for all that surrounds it their casual yet passionate attitude about everything that surrounds them.

I lived in Capitol Hill for three brief months, and loved it dearly. Dearly. Miss it terribly while stuck in this small town in the middle of nowhere.

So when I found the following, I flat-out cried.

From The Stranger's blog post on November 4th (well, okay, Nov 5th at 00:50 hours):

"These blocks are awash in red and blue, and there are riot cops at the perimeter, but everyone’s drinking in the street—PBR, wine, bottles of champagne—and the police don’t care.

"Someone climbs a lamppost, stands on a WALK/DON’T WALK sign on one side and something else on the other side, and starts waving an American flag."



"There are fireworks, there is a rousing rendition of the national anthem led by a drag queen on the roof of Neighbours [a huge queer danceclub] and sung by everyone in the street, and there are riot police looking on peacefully. One is asked, 'Have you ever seen anything like this?' and he responds, 'It’s peaceful! It’s peaceful!'"

[Oh, ps, the subject line is a reference to a Sir-Mix-A-Lot song, because said Sir is from--and still resides in, last time I checked--Seattle, and the reference in the song is indeed to the place pictured.

To my goodbye to Brita yesterday was added a bemused 'The next time I see you, Obama might be president-elect!'

Such a thought. AFter I got off my shift Friday night, Halloween night, I sat and had a drink (a Dammit, Doris, one of our best martinis, while sitting next to a lumberjack) and had a middle-aged combed-over guy in an Obama shirt sit next to me. I assumed it was a joke, being a Republican town and Halloween and all, but no. The conversation included a very sober, "I never thought I'd be voting for a black man."

And that, people, is how far we've come. Even if he doesn't win. Remember that.

COOL.




OH OH And if you want a laugh, watch Bradley Whitford on Bush. I watched it three times before I could pick my jaw up off my desk, but I'm easily shocked. XB

Aaron Sorkin strikes again, the bloody crackwhore genius. [Sep. 21st, 2008|08:48 am]

Seeking a President Who Gives Goose Bumps? So’s Obama.


By MAUREEN DOWD
Published: September 20, 2008

Now that he’s finally fired up on the soup-line economy, Barack Obama knows he can’t fade out again. He was eager to talk privately to a Democratic ex-president who could offer more fatherly wisdom — not to mention a surreptitious smoke — and less fraternal rivalry. I called the “West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin (yes, truly) to get a read-out of the meeting. This is his account:

BARACK OBAMA knocks on the front door of a 300-year-old New Hampshire farmhouse while his Secret Service detail waits in the driveway. The door opens and OBAMA is standing face to face with former President JED BARTLET.

BARTLET: Senator.Collapse )
