On The Over It Pie

ikr. I know I always appreciate it when my sexual orientation is regarded as a personal disappointment to a whiny straight person on the prowl! I also always appreciate when my interests are stereotyped for the purposes of hipster-homophobic humor cause you can't be a real homophobe if you read Savage Love or whatever the fuck now.

whine on, you crazy diamonds.

On Goodbye, Roger Ebert

Oh no, this is dreadful. RIP Mr. Ebert--we may not have always seen eye to eye, but I always respected your point-of-view and I've never sought out anyone else's reviews the same way. :( <3

On Lana Del Rey Covers Leonard Cohen, "Chelsea Hotel"

Wow, that's haunting. I do think most Cohen covers miss the sort of bitter je ne sais quoi of his music--either they inject way too much crescendo (Wainwright!) or make it too atonal and inexpressive (Peyroux)--but I'm impressed with this one. Also, Chelsea Hotel's a good song, so.

On The FLOTUS Pie

Also lolll @ "beta males," one must presume this refers to someone other than the POTUS, who wraps an audience around his finger like it's candyfloss.

@thebestjasmine Yeah, this whole thing has got a serious eau de Lena Dunham, hasn't it?

On Friday Open Thread

@rosaline I don't hate winter or cold temps in general! But once things start getting to engine-freezing, sub-30 temperatures I start reevaluating my life decisions and thinking, "god, that 18-y-o me who thought it was so unromantic that the leaves didn't change in SoCal sure was a twerp."

On Friday Open Thread

@rosaline As a Californian(/general West Coaster) transplanted to other place in recent years, I've learned to stop romanticizing snow.

On Dramatic Real Life Confessions

"It might be intellectually interesting to know how quickly someone can make the Tourmalet climb under careful medical supervision." Finally, a reason for me to be interested in any sort of spectator sport!

On "I felt lighter and better, and all those clichéd things."

And by the way, if that doesn’t prove how much same-sex couples are the exact same as heterosexual couples, not once in my career did anyone ever hear a story I told and say, “Wait a second, that doesn’t sound like anything we … ” It’s all the same.

Hah, maybe this is true for happy gay couples and happy straight couples, but speaking from a similar perspective, I've found some shitty boyfriends rather difficult to translate into gender ambiguity for discreet posterity. :P Men have some very particular ways of being shit. Still, good on him, and nice interview.

Maybe I am just sick of "we are just like the straights! We are! Love us!" from other queers.
