Aw man. I can listen to Alyssa doing bits all day. She might be the one person in existence who started out unintentionally funny but managed to stay funny after gaining self awareness (unlike, say, Gia Gunn or Tommy Wiseau).

Another good podcast pick: The Dollop is not a gay podcast, it's a weird history podcast where a comedian tells other comedian strange news stories. The Newport Sex Scandal episode recounts the U.S. Navy's attempt to infiltrate the gay lifestyle in 1919 by... Forcing Navy officials to have lots of hot gay sex. :allears:

Yip Yip, bitch.
I did watch this season all the way through, and felt really ... flazedah about it. I feel like Pearl's attitude was the feeling I had while watching it all. Like, I never enjoyed the screaming matches that went down, where the queens would rip each other apart. I found it uncomfortable and awkward. What I did enjoy was the subtle poo poo, or the confessional shade. That was actually funny. It's why I loved watching Bianca so much. Yes, she'd make fun of you to your face and in the confession room, but it wasn't ever like ... an attacky attack. It was more like how friends would bullshit each other after a long day at work, and it never felt mean. It's why I was happy when the seriously mean ones didn't get the win, because their personality was such that I felt like they didn't deserve to win.

This season, however, was just hella bland. Maybe part of it was because the ethnic spread was white people from the north, white people from the south, white people from the midwest, a puerto rican queen, and three black girls. The age spread was for poo poo. Two older womens, and the rest in their 20s. That whole manufactured "bitter old queens" thing got old really quick, seeing as how they're all in their loving 20s.

Also, Katya, where the HELL was that Russian prostitute character during Drag Race? That poo poo would have /slayed/ all throughout. She would have quite handily won that crown.

Initially, I didn't give Kennedy much credit, because I felt like she was a bit too one-note. Then her Snatch Game persona came out, and I was laughing so hard. That's when I felt like her personality started to shine through, and her sense of humour began to show.

Also, gently caress group challenges. I hate them. They bore me.

I'd knock Milk and Ivy Winters out of there, and give the duo of Raven and Jujubee a third shot. They're just too awesome together.

It's interesting to see who are the most hated queens are. Serena Chacha and Mimi Imfurst are obviously down there. But Milan is a bit of a surprise down there. But it's almost like someone has it out for Madame LaQueer and Phoenix. Nothing either one of them did warrants the amount of downvotes they're getting. Hell, Madame LaQueer won a challenge.

It'd be interesting to see one of the queens on there who have since come out as trans. Who do we have: Carmen Carrera, Kenya Michaels, Sonique, Porkchop, Monica Beverly Hillz. Anyone else?

But did they actually go with the fan vote for casting last season? I mean, they knocked out Willam for loving Mimi Imfurst. That was some bullshit.

As a straight guy, the gay music videos with the hyper-sexualized and "objectified" guys are always slightly surprising at first. Makes me think about how normalized it has become for women in entertainment. I always enjoy a good perspective flip, plus the song is quite good.

Yup. Also, consider this. You hear some people saying things like, "I'm okay with you being gay, just don't shove it in my face." Then think about how often straight sexuality is shoved in the faces of everybody all the time. It's just so normalized that you don't even think about it.

So Ru is having a crossover of sorts between his shows. The next episode of Skin Wars has the contestants painting drag queens. I very definitely saw Alyssa Edwards in the preview and I think Yara Sofia. A death drop naturally ensues on the reveal stage.
