  1. for whoever didn’t watch the glee promo, SPOILERS AHEAD STOP READING oh my god brittany and santana were holding hands at the end!!! i hope they’re openly dating. that would make my life.

  2. You know, that Johnny Weir clip proves something I’ve been thinking for a long time. Men’s skating doesn’t need to be butchier. It needs to be GAYER. Instead of playing at “Oh these guys r totes str8 and masculine”, they should just let it be the Gaga-infused glitter fantasia it was meant to be. Johnny skating flamboyantly to Poker Face? I could watch that shit all day. Who watches skating? Middle aged women. What do middle aged women LOVE? Tiny adorable gay men. Just let them all be like Johnny, or at the very least, go with modern music. Crowd was eating his shit UP. Go Johnny go!

    • Hells yes! Let ice skating embrace its inner fabulousness. Also, I’m once again flummoxed that Weir isn’t officially out. I understand why he’s got to play the “I’m just me, not a label” game as long as skating is a subjective competition and his score is in the hands of potential homophobes, but it just seems so wrong for this guy to have to play that game in FREAKING ICE SKATING.

  3. See, i was just thinking that $39.95 was a little more than I can swing. Then she used the word “epherma” and I was like daaaaaaamn. It just blows my mind how one woman can be so smart, so sexy, and soooo talented.

  4. I freakin’ loved watching Johnny’s routine. So awesome.

    My mind is blown every time I watch Lady Gaga perform. The visuals are so fantastic. Even if you don’t like her music, you have to appreciate her artistic ability.

    • I like how every time she sings a song she does it differently… sometimes she changes the words, but she adjusts it to fit the context often without even changing the words.

  5. I am so sad that I can’t afford the L-word book right now. I’m fully planning on basing an insane/fictitious religion off of it. I guess it’ll just have to wait until I actually get a job.

    Oh, Glee. How I’ve missed you gaying up my television every week.

  6. Can anyone explain how a show as hot as Glee can have a 4 month ‘hiatus’ in the middle of season 1?

  7. So, I just had a nap, and part of my dream featured a flying superhero having an aerial battle above a deserted beach at dusk, a nice ice man vs. an evil giant fiery beasty. After a while of trading blows, the ice hero realises that he’s barely hanging on, then one of his hero chums flies up. After a few words of encouragement, they share an unexpected gay snog, which makes the ice hero realise what he has to do. He sizes up the evil fire beast, then flies straight into its mouth, down its gullet and wraps himself around its flaming heart, freezing it to death from the inside.

    Anyway, I think this dream of gay ice men winning is a premonition that Johnny Weir will take Olympic gold.

    • Unlikely. Actually, nigh impossible. He was in 6th last night, so someone will have to trip up for him to take bronze. I think he was criminally underscored, but that’s another matter.
