Does Ashley Judd’s impending divorce make a Senate run more likely?

Although I’m not from, nor do I live in Kentucky, I personally would love to see Ashley Judd is a United States Senator!

Addiction…

 I am addicted to RT America, which  broadcasts from its studio in Washington, DC. Of course they offer news reports with an edge, the news reports, features and talk shows are presented with a totally different perspective from mainstream American television. RT/America reports on the other side of the story, not making any conclusions, but raising the unanswered questions. Oh and it’s all presented by some of the best news anchors worth watching.



The Thing Is…..

Vanessa’s Last Laugh

Hate me if you want but I stand by my: Amber Heard is an http://www.gotceleb.com/wp-content/uploads/celebrities/amber-heard/2013-art-of-elysium-s-heaven-gala/Amber-Heard---2013-Art-of-Elysiums--02-560x781.jpgopportunist claim. Heard saw the opportunity to climb the Hollywood starlet ladder when she worked with Johnny Depp on the movie flop: The Rum Diary

However the movie offers may not have come pouring in as she suspected they would.  Oh Amber you took allot of meetings and was stalked by the paparazzi. You dumped your babe GF Taysa Van Ree:

Amber Dahhhling,you meddled in the Depp/Paradis union all for naught you lil hussy. 

http://images.fashionmodeldirectory.com/model/000000275921-marie_de_villepin-fullsize.jpgBut if disappointing lesbians worldwide with her hetero affair wasn’t enough, Heard continues to slap bisexuals in the face by now choosing to be with French model Marie De Villepin, an equally gorgeous blonde. 

How is that a slap min the face? Well Amber is an opportunist and social climber, didn’t I already write that?

Sure people climb social ladders in  show business, however Heard's behavior seems to be calculated career moves and only contributes to the negative oerceptions of bisexuals as indecisive and unable to commit to life partnerships. I don't want Cynthia Nixon held up as an example of how I am wrong in my assumption either.

The actress and her new squeeze -- daughter of former French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin -- are currently http://cdn02.cdn.justjared.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/heard-marie/amber-heard-charles-de-gaulle-with-marie-de-villepin-30.jpgenjoying a romantic getaway in Paris and according to the New York Post, Heard was with her paramour on the Champs-Elysees.

I was recently attacked in a comment posted on my blog when I alluded to bisexuals only choosing  straights for life partners. Well I stand corrected because (at least in Amber Heard’s case) gender is not the defining factor: Social Standing is and dating the daughter of a former Prime Minister of France outweighs dating a middle aged former heart throb actor any day.

Oh Vanessa wipe that smirk away, can’t let Johnny see it when he comes sliming back to you like a loser.

B E Y O N D

My readers know that I expressed many complaints about the President during his first term, yet I voted to re-elect him for a 2nd term in office. Why? The alternative [a Romney presidency] was just too frightening to imagine, so the voters decided to "shut that whole thing down."

I swear, I was excited about this day as much as I was stoked about the Royal Wedding. I’m silly, I know but there was electricity this Frigid January 21st here in the Nation’s Capital and although the crowds on the street weren’t as impenetrable as in 2008, it was exciting, fun,  diverse and “We” were mentioned in the President’s 
 Speech!

In addition the Lesbian and Gay Band Association (LGBA), a musical organization comprising marching and concert bands from across the United States and around the world, was selected from more than 2,800 bands in the nation to perform for President Barack Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden during the presidential inaugural parade Jan. 21.

Haven’t been posting lately, my computer is winding down and indicates that I either 1. Replace it or 2. Replace it.
I am in need of a new or gently used computer, and while I have some funds saved towards this purchase, many of my readers are aware that in all of 2012 I only earned $32.00 from donations and advertising.

And although it would be nice I am not asking for so much in donations that I will be able TO AFFORD a Mac AND a Vacation [I SHOULD BE SO LUCKY], no I'm a PC gal and I need a new or gently used computer tro continue being the voice for the under-represented and MOST Importantly to complete my story "Beyond the Quiet." Besides PC's a very affordable. I am also going to try one of the alternative operating systems that are available because windows is a virus magnet

So if you can please help you can either use the PayPal option on the left or the GoFund Me option  to your right. All amounts will be most appreciated.

No More Lip Service and Guess What?

Lip Service, the BBC show about a group of lesbians in Glasgow was officially cancelled by the network after only two seasons, according to Entertainmentwise.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/AwZ3xA6CIAAawJf.jpg:large

I’m not upset, angry or sad.  Frankly the show hasn’t been on solid footing since the beginning. Now that’s not to say that I wouldn’t have watched a new season just to see women  “Doin’ The Do”  with and to each other, but frankly I’m over the emaciated Shane clones (was never attracted to that type) and the constant indecisive: I want/don’t want/love/hate push and pull dynamics. The demise of Lip Service was self inflicted.  NEXT

The “Un” Coming Out of Jodie Foster

English: Jodie Foster at the Academy Awards. P...

 It was the end of an era when Jodie Foster finally admitted that she's gay (though she never actually said the word) at the Golden Globes.  Oh wait Ms. Foster hasn’t actually said she’s a lesbian or gay for that matter. I don’t care what other admission she’s made by acknowledging her former partner, there’s a sense of magic, a sense of finality that occurs when you actually utter the words: I’m a lesbian, or I’m gay. Not to be equated with an end of life finality or ending my career finality…

There was NOTHING Brave about Foster's non admission during the Golden Globes. When you reach a certain age, it really doesn't matter what the public thinks about you.  Especially in 2013 when it's a time that so much progress has been made in our lives that it's historic. 

Besides it's not like Foster was jeopardizing the zillions of dollars she earned in her 47 years of being a movie star. No nothing brave about her non admission at all.



That’s what was so strange about Foster’s Golden Globe moment: After all it's 2013! There’s  “Marriage Equality" in some states [coming to your state] and we can be out in the military! Jodie Foster apparently didn’t know this, being in the closet for so long. 

I'm roughly the same age as Jodie, and yet I had the courage to come out over 20 years ago. This was before Glee and Modern Family and Will & Grace -- and even Ellen DeGeneres' historical and culture-changing pronouncement. In fact the only icons I had  were the ones left over from the 50's and 60's, replete with tragedy and lonliness.  Which is why I, and many others, took a leap of faith and dealt with the consequences of establishing our idntity. Of course, I wasn't worried about losing $20 million a picture and that was I suspect Foster’s motive. 

I’ve stated so every time I read on some lesbian site cheers and allocates for this actress, who never seemed to embrace her lesbian identity publicly.

Foster blamed publicly for her remaining in the closet all these years -- even with a long-term partner and two children --  yes she blamed it on that whiny excuse that so many celebrities use: "privacy."

Cancer, Tig and Taylor

 

Just a few days after comedian Tig Notaro was diagnosed with breast cancer, she found herself on stage at Los Angeles' Largo theater, revealing the news of her illness and delving into other personal struggles. The performance, which is now officially known as "Tig Notaro Live," was destined to make waves across the Internet and inspire all who listened to it.

I said “BOOM Girl”..Not "Bomb" Girl

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/section/movies/filmography/5/WireImage_590928.jpg
Director: Kathryn Bigelow
Last Wednesday was the season 2 premier of the Canadian Television show Bomb Girls: A show about women working  in a munitions factory  during WWII, however that was over shadowed by Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty. The movie opens nationwide on January 11th. 

UPDATE: 1.07.2013 Washington D.C. there have been protests concerning the torture scene in this movie. I didn't think the movie portrayed anything that hasn't already been reported concerning water boarding during the Bush Administration, and I frankly deem these events as Washington politicians trying to get their 15 minutes. The scene was one of many non torture scenes which did not culminate in locating Bin Laden.

I saw Zero Dark Thirty this past weekend and let me tell you this movie is not like the viewers are used to seeing in the HBO series  “Homeland,” even if Maya, the CIA agent played by Jessica Chastain ), bears a slight resemblance to the character Carrie Mathison.

Yes Maya is seriously obsessed (with finding Bin Laden, and as a resu8lt she  isn’t taken too seriously by the men around her), but later in the game, she speaks off a line of dialogue in which puts the “big boys” in their place: “I’m the m***erf!*ker that found Osama bin Laden”, (and you didn’t, and don’t you forget it.
The explosions are LOUD, Unexpected and Louder than in any other war movie I’ve seen, with the exception of Bigelow’s Academy Award winning film: Hurt Locker. Don’t be fooled by this trailer, when it’s relatively calm and then things go: BOOM!


What makes this movie memorable for me is the fact that Kathryn Bigelow has done is, like in her other movies such as: Near Dark is pay close attention to the way life works in seemingly benign, but complex environments; combining ruthlessness and humanity in a manner that is paradoxical and disconcerting yet satisfying as art.

These factors coupled with what has to be her memorable wartime explosions make this movie worth watching.
