Yes it is the morning and you are very very busy, and it feels like you are doing everything. In fact you are everything and everyone. You are Cher. See, yes, it is understood that you need to get things done, but maybe take the minutes needed to see Cher in the video above where she is portraying every member of the cast of West Side Story. Be inspired that you can be everything, do everything. Why?
It's that time of the year where there is so very much to do and so very many people to see that you need to know that you can do it, and you can. This weekend's weather will be amenable to that with temperatures in the 50's most of the time and lots of sun at least today and tomorrow. (If I can add one thing to your to-do list, let it be a brief survey of your winter coats to ensure that all of the buttons are secure because they can loosen at the end of a season and if you didn't attend to them last spring then you could face a button emergency once the weather does snap down.) So look at your calendar and ours (which is brimming with celebrations) and figure it all out. Do everything. Be everyone. Be Cher.
This airs on the BBC later this month (which means it will be officially in the states around 2019, but downloadable via illegal means within 24 hours). The clip is obviously geared to the twitter people and the blog people, and well, hello.
For me a new Ab Fab always brings me curiosity as to what they've done to the kitchen. I'm trying to spot all the changes. I note that the same Liebherr refrigerator is there and the other major appliances are the same. More to come with that ...
Wouldn't you love to have Ms. Lebowitz over for Thanksgiving? I don't think she'd overeat. She probably knows how to pour a proper cocktail. Most of all every word of conversation would just be so filled with all the truths that we all know to be true. It is assumed that she has plans, so don't set another plate. For now though you can still enjoy the company of Fran by listening to this radio interview with The Majority Report.
Bonus quote not from the interview above: “Homosexuality is god's way of insuring that the truly gifted aren't burdened with children.”
How do you beef up an otherwise anemic song? Fill it up with models. Lots and lots of models.
Sienna Denima, famous for the Jiz series, has taken an eye toward porn. In the first outing Randy Blue's "The Coach" is reworked. Note: You'll may crave zucchini after this. Also? NSFW.
With the workday just about over, you might enjoy "Cocaine". "Cocaine" is cute and a little trippy and makes me think about Prince a little, back in the early 80's. The adorable storyline shows a cute lesbian couple having fun at the carnival, and, after enjoying a bit of cocaine, having way more fun at the circus. "Cocaine" is adorable and I wanted to share it with you, just don't overdo it, because "Cocaine" could have diminishing returns over time. Oh, and be sure to take in all of "Cocaine" as it ends in a surprise. (Via The Awl)
Here's one you may not have been expecting: Sean Lennon visited Occupy Wall Street and sang Material Girl to the crowd giving the song a whole new meaning.Meanwhile, where is Madonna? You would think she could take a moment to stop by the protesters. And maybe pimp her new Macy's clothing line called, ahem, Material Girl.
Oh, Internet. We deride you at times, but without you we wouldn't know about these things from the past. You would think our parents would have told us, or at least some old queen. There it was on Facebook though. Bette Davis in an Aaron Spelling pilot from the early 1960's. Part one is presented above. The other two parts are also on YouTube.
Didn't see that coming, now did you?
Remember back when Cher roller-skated across the United States with a crowd of gay icons following behind her in vehicles as they could not keep up with Cher as she would skate at speeds in excess of sixty miles per hour? Well of course you don't because you were barely a child then and adults kept this information from you in fear that you would join in Cher's trek because you were well on your way to becoming a gay icon and your future ferocity was daunting. Now you you can see video of this momentous occasion and perhaps reenact it for the rest of your life.
I wasn't going to post this. It's very Towleroad in that "OMGOMGOMG, LOVE THAT A STRAIGHT GUY IS DOING SOMETHING REMOTELY GAY!!! BTW? OMG!" kind of way (which is my biggest complaint about Towleroad). On the other hand I really like Stamos and Saget though.
And who doesn't like cuddling? (Actually? I could name names. Names that you know who even despite being cuddly in appearance are not cuddly in any way. And I know. I've cuddled around, okay?)
Anyway, it's cute and it's fun and it's yours to watch. Enjoy.
