As I prepare bto welco0me in 2013, I have time to reflect upon my success and missteps.

Let’s start with some things that Jezebel thinks were significant 2012:
2012 was the year of...
2012 was also another year of having readers not make donations to this blog.  In all of 2012 I raised exactly $35 Dollars. $25 in Donations and $10 in advertising revenue for all of 2012.
Let’s reflect on why that could be:
So since I also need a new computer, and I can hardly purchase one with $30.oo in earnings, I wondered why I always have visitors on Lesberatti and yet no one helps me to maintain this blog? Could it be that I was too confrontational? Or maybe I didn’t refer to my readers as felines:

hell I don’t know.  And while I am sure that some of you are sniggering: Only $35.00? I can respond with a hearty “Oh Well.” Happy New Year!

Goodbye 2012

Bye Bye Blondie

Virginie Despentes
Writer/Director: Virginie Despentes (Photo credit: zigazou76)

Merci Emmanuelle Béart pour dépeindre une lesbienne sur le film.

Bye Bye Blondie. Starring Emmanuelle Beart and Beatrice Dalle as a pair of Sex Pistols-worshipping gals who try to rekindle an affair they began several decades earlier, the film is as cinematically freewheeling as it is emotionally sincere in its portrayal of a star-crossed couple struggling to make it together.


 HERE

Directed by Virginie Despentes (famous french writer). It's more mainstream than her previous one (Baise moi !) but nevertheless very provocative. Provocative because it's a lesbian comedy, Virginie Despentes being herself a lesbian.

As for the film itself I had some hesitation: At first I didn't really believe the love story of the two main characters (B. Dalle & E. Béart), I thought that this was going to be another movie starring actresses who wanted to pander to lesbian audiences.

Portraying the main characters as teens:  Soko and Clara Ponsot. Two promising , attractive young actresses shed vibrancy and urgency to their respective roles.

I am most appreciative of the adult love story between the two adult female leads and of its inherent complexity. I don't need to see teenagers struggling to identify themselves.  I prefer to see what is real, as with what happens to us when we make choices that aren't always true to ourselves and what we to to reconcile this incongruity.
Frances is in a not loveless marriage of convenience, while Gloria seems to retain the impetuousness that landed her is the psych ward as a teen.

It is during the third act that we see the characters begin to switch roles as each woman comes to terms with the changes in her life.

The soundtrack is excellent with songs from Berurier Noir, La Souris Déglinguée, OTH, Metal Urbain... All in all this is not a very good film, a little flawed but that is not very important here. What counts is it’s freedom of speech and that's priceless.

Joan Smalls Is Number One

Joan Smalls is having quite the stellar year. The Puerto Rican supermodel wowed us on the cover of W magazine, landed a job as co-host on MTV's "House of Style" and was the face of Fendi and Chanel's Spring 2012 campaigns.
A year like that is definitely hard to top. However, judging by the two January 2013 Vogue international covers that were just released, Joan will be ringing in the new year in a big way!
 
The 24-year-old graces Vogue Turkey's first cover of 2013 in a gold-and-black embroidered dress with a sheer bodice. The look is toughened up by a black motorcycle jacket and a slicked back ponytail. 

Warning: NOT Politically Correct.


This blog entry is NOT “Politically. Correct,” it is reactionary and it’s the way many people honestly feel but are afraid to say.
In light of the Newtown Ct. Shooting there is dialogue concerning the issue of Mental Illness and it’s prominent role in violence.
I endeavored to develop a professional writing partnership with an individual who divulged the he was living with Asperger’s Syndrome. and now  “Authorities are speculating about if Adam Lanza the Newtown Elementary School Shooter suffered from a mental illness, such as Asperger’s Syndrome and if that could have lead him to commit such a terrible crime.”

This is not the first time this form of Autism has been cited in the wake of a violent crime.

And while experts claim there is no link between Asperger’s Violence and violence which may be true, there is the uncomfortable correlation of Asperger’s Syndrome  being involved to some extent, at least in the case of an animal research technician, Raymond Clark III, who was sentenced to 44 years in prison in June for murdering a Doctoral candidate at Yale University who worked in the same building. Raymond Clark is living with Asperger’s Syndrome. which is considered a high functioning form of Autism.

Executing an Agenda



The 'hacktivist' group 'Anonymous' published names, email addresses, phone numbers and home addresses of every adult member of the Westboro Baptist Church over the weekend, after the church announced its controversial plans to picket Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. 

The Westboro Baptist Church believes that the shooting tragedy, which left 20 innocent children dead, was somehow caused by America's supposed acceptance of homosexuality. 
 
A video features an Anonymous member with his voice disguised saying: “Your impact and cause is hazardous to the lives of millions and you fail to see the wrong in promoting the deaths of innocent people. You are self-appointed servants of God who rewrite the words of his sacred scripture to adhere to your prejudice. Your hatred supersedes your faith, and you use faith to promote your hatred.”

The Anonymous member said the group has decided “to execute an agenda of action which will progressively dismantle” the church, reports RawStory.com.


Monday’s Workout


 
Remember that you have to burn more calories than you consume, for that you can jog 3 times a week 30 minutes each jog and you also have to get the app MY FITNESS PAL to track calorie intake. try to eat about 500 calories under the weight you maintain at (most likely about 1500 calories. IF YOU DO ALL OF THIS YOU WILL LOSE ABOUT A POUND A WEEK. YOU CAN SPEED UP THIS PROCESS BUT NOT BY MUCH/ 3500 CALORIES = 1 LBS. So easy to put the weight on so hard to take it off.

So Sad



sad-big-bird
It’s difficult to write when one sees the horrors set upon the innocent.  We are removed when tragedy occurs elsewhere and shocked when it appears on out front step. and  more so when children are affected.

It’s unfathomable wherever the tragedy occurs, but we know that Guns Kill people, more specifically people with guns kill. There is nowhere for the gun zealots to hide, there is no more misinterpreting the Constitution in order to justify blood lust. It’s time to stop fearing the NRA, as they conspicuously remain silent during this latest holocaust.

The NRA is so damn quick to lobby for people to have the right to own guns, and even more fervent in resisting efforts to weed out the crazies by requiring background checks. The NRA never offers any insights on how to lessen such tragedies.  Where is their leadership, when it comes to curbing gun violence? One jerk said: "Legislating guns is like passing a law making spoons smaller so there will be lass fat people," while another idiot chimed in with" "Is it any worse than dying by hunger?" Unbelievable.

Yes those comments are as asinine as they read because people don't go on killing rampages and masscre an entire class with  spoons the starvation vs. gunshgot argument i9s too "Out There" to address. If this is the level of intelligence in an average NRA supporter. Well no wonder they remain silent.

I am not interested is arguments that nothing could have prevent this loss of lives. I hate guns, perio and I look down upon gun owners as lower life forms to be avoided.

First Graders are a NOT threat to ANYONE, most grade school students and teachers are not a threat either.

I am heartbroken. 

I grew up in New England, would take Sunday drives through Newton. It shouldn’t be this way.  Newtown, CT represented the type of place where you wanted to raised your children. Removed from the smog ridden  and choke-filled streets of New York City, it was a haven, a respite. Not anymore, I feel for the mothers and fathers that lost their children, for the children who lost parents and for everyone affected by this tragic occurrence.

I Can Wait No More….

Seriously, it’s terrible what the networks are doing, cutting seasons down to six episodes.
It wasn’t that long ago that a regular TV season lasted a minimum of 13 to 22 episodes with repeats in the spring.  Now everything is being downsized.  To ,make matters worse we have to wait longer and for the new season to begin. Frankly I’m not loving Grimm all the much. I’d rather had seen season two of SMASH tart in Sempter 2012, not Februry 2013.

Well it’s almost here and as usual they’re still messing with my fantasy woman of the moment Ivy Lynn (played by Megan Hilty).


Karen is after New Meat and Jennifer Hudson “Brings It.”

So this is what I was thinking

I was checking out the videos on YouTube Friday evening. I needed somethin to cheer me up. Earlier in the day it had been reported that the nurse who had answered the prank telephone call fro the two Australian DJ's comitted suicide, apparently she had been so shamed by the senseless prank she felt there was no other way out. 

Clearly this is illustrative of a deeper psychological issue.  Nonetheless there may have been cultural actors hat contributed to this tragedy. This is exactly why those two white radio personalities should exercise discretion and not assume that everyone who do not share their cultural norms and values will react to their tricks benignly.

Jacintha Saldanha was well respected by her colleagues and will be sorely missed.
The hospital said in a statement: ““We can confirm the tragic death of a member of our nursing staff, Jacintha Saldanha."

”Jacintha has worked at the King Edward VII Hospital for more than four years," the statement read. "She was an excellent nurse and a well-respected and popular member of staff with all her colleagues. We can confirm that Jacintha was recently the victim of a hoax call to the hospital. The hospital has been supporting her at this difficult time.”

This IS IT People! The Supreme Court will take up the Prop. 8 case and DOMA


The Supreme Court has just announced that it will hear arguments in the Prop. 8 case, Hollingsworth v. Perry.
What's also exciting is that the Court simultaneously announced it'll take up the Defense of Marriage Act. This means we'll finally get a ruling on this discriminatory law by next June. http://localtvwdaf.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/same-sex-marriage.jpeg?w=302
A win in either of these cases would mark an incredible, decisive point in this movement's history, one I've been working toward since I helped bring the Prop. 8 case as co-founder of the American Foundation for Equal Rights.
Extreme right-wing leaders are going to immediately rally their base around today's announcement – claiming the Court can't outpace public opinion.
 
Thankfully though a majority of Americans support marriage equality. We have to counteract the other side with one booming, united voice for marriage equality.
 
Sign HRC's Majority Opinion petition now: "We are the majority of Americans. We stand for marriage equality and the end of DOMA."

The clock is ticking and we have little time to show the Court that if it rules in favor of marriage equality, it'll be reflecting the values of America's fair-minded majority and the momentum this cause has earned recently at the ballot box.

Run Ashley RUN!

 Will Ashley Judd Run for Senate?
OMG I sure the hell hope so!
http://vscdn.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Ashley-Judd_Mitch-McConnell-slider.png
Actress Ashley Judd is reportedly considering running for a Senate seat to represent the state of Kentucky. Sources say she is considering running in 2014 against the top Senate Republican, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, or possibly waiting until 2016 to run against Sen. Rand Paul.


Judd has discussed her possible run with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and as well as a Democratic pollster. The native Kentuckian has also started conducting research to see where in the state she would have to fight the toughest battle, as defeating McConnell would be a considerable challenge. For Democrats, Judd is an attractive choice to take him on because she could raise a lot of money and is already well known in Kentucky.

"I do receive a lot of encouragement to run," Judd said at an event at the Democratic National Convention. "And my deepest desire is to be useful. I want to help serve my fellow [citizens]. And I may be doing that to the best of my capacity … in the space I'm already operating in. Or it may be time to look at possibly running for office."

Oh-Oh Omahyra and Boyd

 

Much  is being made of Omahyra Mota and her Boyfriend Boyd’s x-rated photo shoot for famed photographer Ellen Von Unwerth.

Admittedly, I am used to seeing Mota in Drag, but she is heterosexual and seems to go out of her way to establish that fact.

When Asked......

When she was asked what was the cause of her becoming one of America's top supermodels, Cindy Crawford readily admitted that it was her resemblance to America's first supermodel the late, out lesbian Gia M. Carangi.


Crawford's modeling career dovetailed Carangi's leading to her being nicknamed: "Baby Gia."

Nice video, and I actually think the woman with the short hair is more attractive. 

Now in her 40's we don't know how much of a resemblance to Gia is still apparent in Crawford and that's because Gia died at age 26.

Rihanna and Her Subliminals Again

The other day we talked about the way Rihanna likes to say things without actually saying them [click here if you missed that].
So lets try to figure out what Rihanna is trying to tell us by being photographed leaving a Paris hotel with this book...
Rihanna is carrying a copy of 'Omahyra and Boyd', an X-rated bondage book by German photographer Ellen von Unwerth, featuring model Omahyra Mota and her boyfriend Boyd in a series of erotic snaps including a bunch with Omahyra doing girl on girl. 

Finally


I finally had the telephone wall unit replaced.  Now my DSL is working properly, well except for the fact that I need a new Ethernet cable for the router. My DSL is now constant No flickering lights, but I can’t use the router, so that means that until I replace the Ethernet cable, well I am bound to my desktop. But hey it’s all good because I’m online!
