@The Dilettantista Please please please be my new best friend.
When I was in 8th grade, I sang "New Ways to Dream" from Sunset Boulevard for the spring show. A cappella. 1 or 2 years prior, I was all set to audition for the talent show with "When I Look at You" from Scarlet Pimpernel, but was saved from THAT embarrassment by illness. Did I mention that the Scarlet Pimpernel audition would have been judged by a jury of my peers?
@The Dilettantista Clearly, the definition of drag exists on a spectrum and nothing is going to encompass everything that drag is. I do think that Drag Race the television show has to do with female impersonation (case in point: Alaska getting read for performing the kiddie show in a boy outfit), and that it's not going to be all things to all people.
@The Dilettantista I knowwww. I like Michelle too. I wasn't upset about the contouring comment. I think she was right, but every week she has been super snide to Jinkx. THOUGH it is entirely possible that they are editing it to make her look worse than she actually is towards Jinkx, I hope this is the case because I think it means that Jinkx might be the winner!!
I love those ridiculous commercials. THEY ARE ALL SO AMAZING.
@The Dilettantista YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE. I have had Can I Get An Amen stuck in my head ALL WEEK.
@The Dilettantista I think the show's response on trans* issues has been mixed. The thing with Monica this season, in my opinion, was to make amends for the fact that until now there's been kind of an unspoken rule that trans women can compete only if they aren't perceived as being actively transitioning. They didn't make that an obvious rule but it was enough of a thing that India Ferrah was so mad at the perceived unfairness of allowing trans women to compete that to complain about it she outed Carmen Carrera as trans before Carmen had come out publicly. Now, this stuff didn't happen directly on the show but the competition environment had to contribute, and if you ever read the comments on Carmen's fb page you'll also see that there are plenty of drag "fans" that are ignorant or downright offensive when it comes to trans* issues. So all that could be improved.
That said, WHERE MY PEOPLE AT WHERE MY PEOPLE AT :) Roxxxy had really been flying under my radar until this episode but for some reason I thought that little singing improvisation was cute as a button.

@Bus Driver Stu Benedict I've seen A LOT of BSG and wasn't happy about it, so I probably would have been like "ugh, I can't even look at you guys anymore." Or possibly "EJO! How can you reeeeach these keeeeeds?")
@Princess Slayer Count me in for a D*C pin-up. Also, I was at the panel this article is about, and it was awesome. Someone also asked Patrick Stewart why he started doing voice work, and he said "Well, because I have one of the greatest voices in teh English-speaking world." Which he does, so that's fair.
"BE LIKE HERMIONE!" is the best thing I've read in a while :) Also how I try to act every day.
