Meryl's Mamma Mia....

Being a Swede, I've never really listened to ABBA. It's fun music in my opinion, but I've never been a fan. And even though I've always been a huge fan of musical, I'd never go and see Mamma Mia on stage. Anyways. Meryl Streep, well, I pretty much want to marry that woman. And Amanda Seyfried, well, I'm a huge Veronica Mars fan, and I love her on Big Love as well. So. I decided I wanted to see Mamma Mia, the movie. Being broke, and in my hometown this week, I talked my mom into taking me to the movies to see Mamma Mia the day before my birthday. And. I mean I thought I'd have a good time, I thought it was gonna be fun music and stuff but. I loved this movie, and I so did not see that coming. I fell in love with Meryl Streep all over, I loved the sense of humour in the movie, loved the realness of the characters, and now I find myself listening to the soundtrack. I don't know if there's something wrong with me, but I am frakking in love with this movie.


Let's promote drugs and homosexuality

I don't believe people like this exist.
It's "interesting" to hear people's views on how sex/sexuality/heterosexuality/homosexuality/men/women/etc. are connected though..



Sexuality and gender in BSG-world

A few things I found interesting in After Ellen's interview with Tricia Helfer (6 on Battlestar Galactica) and Michael Taylor (writer of Razor, BSG movie):

AfterEllen: As a writer writing in the BSG universe, how do you feel sexual orientation is viewed in that (albeit fictional) society?

Michael Taylor: I tend to think that in this respect, at least, they're a bit more enlightened than we are, which is partly why we didn't want to make much of a fuss about the idea of Cain being "gay," if indeed she is gay, or if indeed Colonial society places much importance on sexual orientation.

Then why are all romantic and/or sexual relationships on the show (not counting Razor obviously) heterosexual? That seems very odd to me. When I started watching the show, I almost thought that men and women were equals on this show. I really wish they had created a world without gender in BSG, that would have been majorly awesome.

AE: When the Season 2 episodes "Pegasus" and "Resurrection Ship" were written, was Admiral Cain's relationship with Gina/Number Six already in the backstory, or was that relationship created for Razor? If so, why?

Michael Taylor: That relationship was indeed created for Razor, though it developed from our desire to explore whether Cain's anger and revulsion at Gina, so evident in her first appearance in Season 2's "Pegasus," had a personal component. At which point, the idea that the pair had had an intimate relationship quickly came to mind. It made Gina's betrayal that much more devastating for Cain.

I just saw those episodes of season 2, and I did wonder whether they had thought of the back story before that.. it certainly seemed like it judging by how strongly Cain felt about Gina and how she treated her...

AE: Gina in "Razor" seemed to genuinely care for Helena Cain, but she was also clearly doing the work of the Cylons. Do you think Gina had genuine feelings for Cain?

Tricia Helfer: I do believe that Gina had genuine feelings for Cain. Very much like Six (Caprica Six) who cared intensely for Baltar — that didn't stop her from completing her mission either.

Whole Interview

Edit: And geeze Admiral Cain is hot/interesting. Heh.


Kelka love

I have no idea why I stopped listening to The Planet Cast. KC and Elka are fucking hilarious, and you don't even need to watch a whole lot of The L Word to enjoy their podcast (which is normally about the L Word though).

And look at this they were in Curve Magazine:



Eliza + Joss = TV = Love

I'm late and I bet you already heard of this. But nothing could make an epo happier. I cried, a little bit.

"Whedon's new Fox series, called Dollhouse, stars Miss Eliza Dushku, best known as Faith to you Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans."

Eliza + Joss = TV = Love


Oh Laurel

I have an illness, an illness I say! This androgyny obsession has gone too far. Want proof? Well, I'm watching The Incredible Adventures of Two Girls in Love, and I'm finding Laurel Holloman cute. Yeah? Told ya? Too far.

I don't know what else to say. You're right Fran, it's not a good movie, but it was cuter and more entertaining than I thought it would be. And yes, I am sort of ashamed to say that.

[Edit: Realized that it must seem as if I think Laurel Holloman is really ugly etc., that's not at all what I meant. I guess it's somewhat an inside joke, I just don't usually like her characters much, and people who know me know that her "2 girls in love"-character is not normally someone I'd find attractive.]


Strawberry Panic

I love subtext as much as the next sick-of-heteronormative-movies-y lesbian, I really do. But sometimes it's nice when something actually happens.

I'm not talking about nude sex scenes or even heavy make out sessions (though I guess I wouldn't complain about the last one), but at least crushes that aren't only subtext but actually outspoken? Kissing? I dunno maybe some romantic drama?

Yeah. I like Strawberry Panic. Mhm.

Lesbian paradise?

So I've started watching Strawberry Panic. And even though people have told me it sucks (*cough* mire *cough*), I am really starting to love it.

We've got three all girls boarding schools, where the girls from all three schools sleep in the same dorms. The characters aren't super original, neither are the storylines really, some relationships are kinda weird etc.


There are only female characters in this show, they barely even ever mention boys and it's all about relationships/crushes/etc. What this leads to is that lesbianism becomes the norm. All the characters we meet have crushes on the other girls, and they don't even mention that it's girl/girl love and relationships.

Like I said, in this show and at these school lesbianism seems to be the norm (at least so far, I haven't seen the whole show). They don't even mention homosexuality – or heterosexuality for that matter – and we seem to be living in a world with only girls. Or, I suppose, a world without gender.

(I just wish Amane Ohtori would be promoted to a regular on the show...)


Hakura my love

I do love androgyny – right now more than ever. I've never had a very feminine body, but I've always looked/acted very "girly" and I really hate it. I should cut my hair but I dunno if it'd work. I should get taller and get muscles. Hm. Fuck.

I have a new major crush. Hakura aka Sailor Uranus. Seriously. And her and Michiru (Neptune), how cute aren't they as a couple? Seriously.

Hakura/Michiru - Androgyny - I'm not a fan of fan videos, especially ship ones, but hey

Faith – if you ever read this – isn't she the kind of girl you'd have a character crush on as well? Do you watch Sailor Moon?

What can I say, I want to watch Sailor Moon season 3 forever and all the time. Thank you Susanna and Jenni :)
