Went to battle of the seasons tonight. Alaska owned the loving show. Like just put on the most amazing performance.

The one in Dallas? We're going tonight and I'm so frickin' excited!

So I had a thought last night while re-watching this episode. I wonder what the chances are that within the next episode or two Pearl decides to leave the show and ask that Trixie replace her. Hmmm.

Man, I took my time watching this episode and when I got to it the internet exploded.

I felt so bad for Trixie! Even having already spoiled the episode for myself! She looked like a kicked puppy on the runway! And I for one don't terribly care for how "accurate" a lip sync is to the original performer; I want to see what you do with the song to reimagine it as your own. So even if Pearl, as many have said across the internet, was closer to Deborah Harry, Trixie's livelier rendition was more engaging to me. Hell, just the line "like the back of my man-hand" won it for me.

I wanted Jaydinn to win this one. Her Bianca was so fun to watch. And I thought she looked true-to-her-name FIERCE on the runway.

Well, the outpouring of goodwill towards Trixie these past two days has been so generous, this has been a huge boost to her Q rating.

The Apple is truly the greatest film of all time. I even managed to track down the soundtrack on vinyl. Nobody will walk away disappointed by it, guaranteed.


EDIT: It's an excellent Rifftrax, but everyone owes it to themselves to go in without the accompaniment first to really appreciate the bugfuck lunacy and songs about methamphetamine.

Yeah, I thought for sure she was a shoe in to win this week. She was fantastic, and to me, Kennedy didn't stand at anymore than Mrs Kasha Davis or Kandy Ho.

But then I remembered. Ru LOVES a ghetto queen done even moderately well, and I had forgotten that's what Kennedy did. Doing a ghetto act just cracks Ru up. I remember back to when Shangela and Coco Montrese won their comedy challenges, when they were not the strongest that week.

Usually they can edit even terrible performances to be bearable but holy poo poo I had to watch MacBitch through the cracks of my fingers.

Someone had made the comparison between Max and Jinx last week and I just groaned. The whole feigned underdog act when she was clearly getting a winner's edit was absolutely tedious to sit through that season. Max's come into her own, though. That said, I'm riding the Katya train until the goddamn wheels fall off.

Speaking of goddammit, Willam's back from her cruise tour with a new Beatdown!

The only reason Kennedy stood out for me is because I hated the makeup she did for her group's video.

Speaking of Kennedy, I was surprised it took this long for them to get to the touching emotional moment about Sahara. You'd think they'd crank that out as fast as possible.

So yeah, Pearl didn't look like she put as much effort into the lipsynch as Trixie did, but if you think in terms of Blondie actually being the one performing that song, then Pearl did a drat good job. Sure Trixie was lively (and certainly didn't deserve to go home) but Pearl did Debbie Harry, which is quite possibly what Ru saw in her.

...Unless this is a big ploy for Trixie to come back later in the season, which I am also A-OK with.

I also thought one of the main reasons Trixie got sent home was due to her being the team leader and falling short, but then in the episode prior Kennedy sucked at being a leader, so there goes that theory.

I kind of suspect that Trixie trying to get off stage when they were working on the music video in front of RU was what sealed her fate. I will admit when I went back and watched the finished video again that Trixie didn't really stand out especially next to Katya's genius performance. I still think it's bullshit even if I can see the reasoning.

Honestly watching it, the team with Kennedy was the worst of all of three. I'm pretty sure the only reason they won was because it was advertising Ru's crap.

I think that's part of it, but I also now think that they were the only one who really got what Ru wanted for the challenge. Ru said that she wanted to be spoofed and the other two teams didn't do that. Ru wanted Weird Al poking fun of Gaga to the tune of "Bad Romance" and the rest gave her Weird Al making fun of grammar to the tune of Robin Thicke. It helped that Ru could then say "I can laugh at myself" when picking them as the winner.

Still think "Get Ready to Clock" was better.

Trixie has said that Ru and Michelle actually weren't giving any stage directions and just let the girls do their thing. It's totally reasonable for someone to not instinctively know the first time that when your green screen shot is done, you don't physically get out of the shot.

Giving Trixie an edit like that was definitely supposed to be signalling weakness to the audience, but after finding that out, it just seemed silly.

I'm really going to miss Mrs. Kasha Davis. I loved that bitch.

It was like someone let someone's dad enter the contest and then completely forgot that she was there and a dad because she wasn't completely awful.

And then you'd realize she was there and laugh.

Dad what are you still doing here? This is a competition. It's not for Dads.

I honestly think that it's because the queens are all pretty much on the same level this season. In previous seasons there were always a few obvious duds who were definitely going home the first couple episodes. Then a several middle of the pack girls, and then one or two absolute standouts. Really, since season 3, pretty much every season the ultimate winner was getting a winner's edit the entire season. Raja, Sharon Needles, Jinx Monsoon, Bianca del Rio, I don't think any of us had any doubt that any of them were at the very least for sure going to be in the final three. But this season, I have no clue. Maybe Ginger? But even she isn't that much of a standout compared to the winners of seasons past.

I think some of this stems from wanting to mix it up a bit. They are worried about the format becoming stale but instead might of broken a winning formula.

Honestly this is kind of what I thought when I was watching the critiques and such. I didn't agree with the winners or the elimination but just in terms of looks, they are all pretty amazing. There's no Raja just slamming it in terms of runway looks or what have you over everyone else, no one just monopolizing challenges. It's a much more even playing field it feels like, at least now that Jasmine is gone. My idea of who might be in the top three eventually keeps changing each week.
