Kim Gordon may be one of the coolest women on earth, and the Times sure knows it. She was one of the few women in rock music who was recognized for her talent and not for just being "a woman in rock". I also with that she and Thurston Moore were my parents.
In about a week and a half I will be in DC for the wedding of the century. I can't believe it is here. I know there are several people in DC that I have neglected and need to see. I am just putting it out there that I will not be there long, and the weekend is taken up with wedding stuff and other long standing committments to certain people. And, to be honest, I haven't been feeling that great both physically and mentally, so I don't know how much great company I will be. I know that sounds like some crap exscuse, but I would almost have people see me during my better times, which I know will come soon. This is not a pity party, it's just honesty. I have a hunch that I will be back again at some point in the summer.
After that, off to Long Island to see my brother and sister and law's new house. And spend some time with the parents. I hope I don't revert back to acting thirteen; there is a strong liklihood of brattiness ocurring.
So with the X-men post, some people have sent me some more stuff.
Wonder Woman is a lesbian. And this comes as a suprise? This is about as shocking as when Michael Stipe came out.
This isn't the last x-Men movie. No kidding. Anything can continue when a paycheck is involved.
Finally, I joked that slash fiction writers were in heaven over these movies. Apparently, I was right. How can people actually write this stuff and think it is good? Just so you know, I didn't find that site. A certain co-worker sent it to me.
So this is why I have given up on watching The Real World. That disgusting hateful boy Tyler declared "operation bitch takedown" on an annoying but harmless roommate and gathered up some of the others to start a burn book about her. He does not make the gays look good. What a sad, sad, man who obviously has a deep hatred for women. And then our old anorexic friend Paula who goes ballistic because the producers will not let her boyfriend stay over the house because there is a restraining order against him. Watching this show has gone from guilty pleasure to making me feel absolutely hopeless for the youth of today.
In other quality MTV programming news, The Hills starts tomorrow. It is a spin-off of Laguna Beach where one of the blonds (still can't tell them apart) is an intern for Teen Vogue in LA. Wow, life is haaaaard. It will be amazing. And by amazing I mean as much as a train wreck as Laguna. I am not one to talk beacuse whenever the show is on I stop like a deer in headlights. There was a marathon on when I was sick and I (again) got sucked in for at least an hour. Anyway, the NYTimes seems to be treating it as Emmy worthy…
Camera Obscura is a band I loathed for a while, but now I lurve them. I guess you would call it mellow-indie-country-pop? You know I can't categorize things. They are what Belle and Sebastian try to be, but good.
