Random Musings

First up ... congrats to Violet Chachki for winning RuPaul's Drag Race this season.
I was late to Team Violet, but after her lipsync, and strip show, on the finale, all I could say was ...

Here’s a little update on Steward Butler, the former running back for the Marshall University football team, who was arrested last month and charged with battery after beating a gay couple because they were :::gasp::: kissing in public—see my post HERE.

He was just indicted on felony state charges of violating the civil rights of the two victims … say it with me, Hate Crime. 

Right after his arrest Butler was dismissed from Marshall's football team, and now he faces jail time.

Let me make this queer: people kiss on the street, even gay people.

Speaking of men kissing … last week a video appeared of Justin Bieber riding his little skateboard aboard his private jet, and stopping for a moment to give a peck on the cheek to Mikey Arana, his male bodyguard. And, of course, people freaked: Is Justin gay?

Well, to his credit — and Hell must be getting a few degrees cooler if I’m complimenting The Biebs — Justin said:

“I’m not gay, but even if I was that’s not an insult.”

Oh, and the kiss? It was like a little boy kissing his father Good Night.
Rick Perry is throwing his hat into the GOP Clown Car this week, and Bobby Jindal and Jeb Bush will be trying to climb in later this month; they ought to think about getting a GOP Clown Bus.

But, speaking of Perry,  under indictment as we speak, wouldn’t it be something if he won the GOP nomination the very same day he was found guilty of abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, for threatening to veto $7.5 million in funding for the Public Integrity Unit, a state public corruption prosecutors department, and found guilty of coercion of a public servant, a third-degree felony, for seeking the resignation of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, after she was convicted of drunk driving, and incarcerated.

He could be the nominee and be sentenced to jail on the same day.

Now that’d be fun!
Apparently Adam Levine bared his ass in a new video because the music isn’t good enough to stand on its own.
Pride month, or months, is here, and all kinds of folks are celebrating with us … like Maytag and Adidas and Converse.

Could you have imagined this even five years ago?
So, we began watching Aquarius last week — though the reviews were unkind — and we found it kinda slow, but kinda interesting.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that it stars a couple of hot guys — not Duchovny who could use a sit-up or 1,000 — but Grey Damon and Gethin Anthony. Man, even their names are hot … but I digress. 

Damon plays the new breed of cop, kinda Serpico-esque for my older readers, while Anthony plays Charles Manson. Hot hot hot.

I do have an issue with Anthony’s Manson because he’s more hot that psychopath, and they are playing up the gossip that Charlie Manson loved the dues as much as he loved the ladies, and apparently liked having sex with a girl and her daddy … though not at the same time.
Meanwhile, back at Pride … Indiana Governor Asshat, er, Mike Pence has issued his first ever LGBT Pride proclamation welcoming residents and visitors to Indianapolis' Pride Celebrations.

Strangely enough, though, Pence makes absolutely no mention of LGBT people, sexuality or gender identity in his letter; in fact, the words 'gay,' 'lesbian,' 'bisexual,' or 'transgender' aren't included anywhere.

Mike needs to rethink Pride. And then sit down and be quiet until his term in office in up.

Then go away.
Hannibal returns tonight on NBC, and I am so ready. I love the operatic gruesomeness of the show, and the creepy, almost too-icky-for-TV quality. It really is like nothing that network TV has shown before.
Diana Ross is on Twitter y’all. Diva. Icon. And, from my own personal experience, a lovely dance partner. Diana.Ross.Is.On.Twitter! That is all.

I thoroughly enjoyed DragRace this year, but never did arrive to the Violet show. I have yet to see what she'll ambassador. I'll give her.... she serves good face, killer looks, and paints a flawless face, but drag shows these days are already hurting, and to be seen and get a crowd, one must really be a well-rounded, versed queen to go see. People want more than those queens who stand and pose, collect the ones with nothing else. I still think Ginger should have won. That said Violet I'm sure will grow into a phenomenal queen, I just don't see it all just yet and no warmth. She had a terrible reception in Philly about a year ago, only because she wasn't engaging. But I do wish her well.....and don't get me started on Hannibal.......Thank goodness something juicy to look forward too.

AND PS.....I had no idea that the clown bus was growing so big!!!!! That is a hell of a lot of pancake foundation and red rubber noses.

I was won over by Violet's strip-lip-sync. But, yeah, I can see how she might come off as aloof in a show.

i couldn't agree more about Levine. It's why Colton Ford strips down in his videos : his music sucks.
