D'oh. So much C&P, I thought I had caught it all. Fixed.

In other news, the Hurricane Bianca trailer is out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f22WzqqV_H4

Man I want this to be amazing (and it looks okay at worst), but for me Rachel Dratch is where comedy goes to die.

Tbqh, I think Adore was right about not belonging there. You might be really into tuvan throat singing, hell you might be the loving best at it, and that's awesome! Do you! But you probably shouldn't go try to win American idol with it.

Yeah I kind of felt like that too. It's not a great strategy to enter any season of drag race thinking you're going to just do your regular thing and that will be enough to win, and that's even less viable for All Stars.

Carson is sometimes funny, but I literally forget Todrick is in the room. I don't dislike him, I just literally don't even notice him.

I was sad to see Tatiana go. Not because I thought she had a chance at the crown, but because I like her and I think she was set up. Phi Phi absolutely deserved to be in the bottom three, and if she had been I suspect that either Katya or Alaska would have sent her rear end home. Her Snatch Game was okay, but that lumpy-chested half-assed bullshit runway was more unforgivable for All Stars than Tatiana's medicore Snatch.

I would actually be super interested in seeing some drag kings but I have to admit I don't really see how that would work into Drag Race as it exists currently. Are queens competing against kings? If so, that seems to confer a serious advantage to one or the other side for some challenges/lip syncs. I could see an episode or even a special season of Drag Race where queens and kings compete as couples in challenges designed for couples (not permanent pairings, shuffled around each week?), but that just seems like a fundamentally different kind of show.

e: welp

Well this image:



Was in the article, which is pretty dang impressive.

I haven't seen a single drag king performance so I'm not going to venture an opinion on what's actually out there, but I can see how it could potentially be very entertaining.

I really wanted to compliment him but felt too shy. At the bar a bit later, somebody else complimented him and he looked so genuinely touched that I felt bad for being such an awkward goon about it.

I did this same thing at the drag contest I went to in Austin. There were a couple of performances that rank among those "I will literally never forget that as long as I live" memories and I really wanted to tell them how amazing it was but I felt like they'd be "oh great so I've got the fat straight middle aged uncool guy demo locked down, I'm hosed".

I liked the bit where the loser got slapped. But if that's the best bit of your show, your show's not great.

Saw Bob last night. Very fun show, but very short. Maybe 45 minutes, no opening act or anything. Perfectly fine value for money (it was hella cheap for a show in Oz), but if I'm going to lug my rear end all the way down to Syd I'd rather pay more and have longer show with more than one queen.

Anyway, still pretty great. Did a lip sync to a parody song called "I Like Big Cocks", interspersed with spoken word from this:

From PhiPhi's interview in Vulture:

quote:

Even when I left I was like, Okay, fine, I want to just go see my boyfriend. I didn't hug Alyssa because I didn't want to cry, and I wrote that on the board, but I don't think that they show that this episode. I'm a very emotional person, and I felt like if she hugged me the tears would come out I just saw how fake she was and I didn't want that to be what I ended on.

Girl just doesn't know when to shut the gently caress up. The interview actually made me feel somewhat more sympathetic to her right up to that line. Couldn't even get through the lie of "hugging Alyssa would have just been too emotional" without immediately taking it back and being spiteful and gross.

Yeah I love Katya and she's done okay, but she just isn't performing at anywhere near the level she needs to in order to stand out this season. Actually even when I saw her on tour with BOTS she didn't really do much in the way of performance - there were some amazing showpieces that night, but Katya just came out and talked to the audience about how much Drag has meant to her. And she's loveable as gently caress and I'm crazy about her, but god dammit girl you are on a stage with Jinkx Monsoon and Violet Chachki. I want to see you at least try to wow me.

Not surprised by the outcome, and I think Alaska deserved it as much as anybody. I like Katya more as a person, but I don't feel like she's quite on the level of polish as Detox and Alaska, so I didn't feel like she was necessarily right for the crown even though I want her to have everything she wants in the world.

Holy poo poo, what a weird coincidence. I'm giving a seminar about research today, and one of the key turning points in my talk is a slide that says "is it possible to suck less?"

Totally going to throw the cover of Willam's book in there.
