Daily Fix – Three Rivers Run Through It

Today on Autostraddle: Our recap & video from yesterday’s anti-gay marriage rally is obvs not-to-be missed because not only do we interview our favorite person of the week Dan Choi but we also talked to the anti-gays! Also check out our new feature Girl-on-World, featuring a wild Berlin trip to see Metric and our Autostraddle Roundtable on Who’s Really Hot Right Now? (Besides our Hot 100, obvs).

Kate Moenning will be on your TV! (probs wearing more clothing than she did on The L Word) because Alex O’Loughlin’s ‘Three Rivers’ is among anticipated CBS pickups: “In a weekend filled with the broadcast networks furiously renewing shows and greenlighting new fall series, Variety is reporting that CBS, which will officially unveil its fall 2009 line-up on Wednesday in New York City, has given the OK to five new dramas: The Good Wife, starring Julianna Margulies; Three Rivers, starring Moonlight alum Alex O’Loughlin…” (@ ew.com/Entertainment Weekly)

+Gay marriage pumps $111 million dollars into the Massachusetts economy! In other news, Michael Steele is an idiot.

+ Juliana Hatfield, who I have been consistently listening to since 1994, pens “The Ballad of Lindsay Lohan.” (@american songwriter)

“Oh people love it when a beautifiul woman self destructs
Like a bird in a cage or a bug under glass people point but don’t touch
But beautiful boys get away with so much, they get away with murder
They can be wasted and dirty and cruel because they know there’s always another girl And you want her, you really want her,
She’s a mirage, in the desert, she’s like water.”

+Tulane Graduation Honors: “Look at you,” Ellen DeGeneres said to the crowd at the Louisiana Superdome. “Usually when you’re wearing a robe at 10 in the morning it means you’ve given up.”(@nytimes)

+Cynthia Nixon announces engagement to girlfriend Christine Marinoni – video here!

+Leave it to The Sun to blow this WAY out of proportion: POP beauty FERGIE has become the latest celebrity to admit to a lesbian romp: The 34-year-old star explained: “You’ll like our next video, for I Got A Feeling, because I have a little girl-on-girl tease section of the video.” (@thesun)

+Your WHAT THE FREAKIN’ FRACK of the Day:  Girl Scouts exposed: Lessons in lesbianism: “When many parents think of Girl Scouts, they imagine young girls in uniform selling Thin Mints and Tagalong cookies – not learning about stone labyrinths, world peace, global warming, yoga, avatars, smudging incense, Zen gardens and feminist, communist and lesbian role models.” (@wnd)

As aforementioned, here’s some Shannyn Sossamon:

  1. While I am ecstatic to have Kate Moennig back on my screen.. If I see one more doctor or cop/detective/cia drama I will hurl. Its like there is NO creativity anymore. ARG!

    • I know, everyone wants to play it safe. I said the same thing to Carly, re: not wanting to see another thing that’s just more of the same. I feel like the organ transplant twist isn’t enough to make it work, yannow?

      • Yeah. Its still another doctor drama. UGH

        I want (and I have thought about this) a comedy show on HBO or Sho(so people can cuss and have sex, lol). The premise is a straight girl in college whose entire family is gay, parents and siblings. She gets engaged but to a guy and she has to introduce him to her family and ‘come out’, they just assume she is gay. Kinda like Hunter/Micheal/Ben (QAF).

        Very crazy family members. One mom is accepting the other is in denial. Ya know the same thing but reversed and comical. IDK. I think it would be good! Only one season though hit it and quit it.

        If this halfway makes sense, good. If not, disregard this, its late I’m rambling.. whatev’s

  2. yay for graham philips on “the good wife” and christopher j hanke on “3 rivers” !!!

  3. I can’t seem to accept Kate in any role besides Shane on L Word. I look at her in other movies/teevee shows and think, “She’s not a straight woman from Jersey dating that man casually and then killing him in an “accident” while out jet skiing.”

    I. just. can’t. do. it.

    Too much Shane obsession there for me, but I guess I’m happy for her.

    • Yeah me neither. Isn’t that weird? I sort of am not that excited about the show ’cause having read the pilot … I think her character is straight. If her character turns out to be bi or gay than I literally cannot wait for this to happen, but the straight thing just confuses me. I prefer typecasting. :-)

  4. about the shannyn sossamon – brighter news indeed.

    i feel like this was an early birthday present, just for me.
