"And that was how I found out."
Actually here’s a better version! This has been your morning of Clark Gregg appreciation.
I was DEVASTATED when Trinity left!! I was actually rooting for her from the beginning because her drag was INCREDIBLE and I was LIVING for her Princess Leia/Kate silver outfit. It was just so creative and cool and daring, and as quiet and ignored as she might have been by the other girls, you couldn’t touch her once she got on that runway. Also, she won the very first photoshoot challenge, so let’s not forget that bitch had her look together from minute one.
I like Jocelyn a lot too, speaking of queens who were on the bottom this week. I think she’s a lot smarter that her edit makes her out to be. In Untucked she’s always offering this really great encouragement to the other queens that’s so savvy and insightful, and I just remember that time she told Gia she was acting ignorant for acting like Vivacious was so beyond her understanding. THAT’S when I developed all the respect for her. And even Monday night, her apology was so sincere and goddamn classy - I’d like to see Courtney be that humble, is all I’m saying.
That being said, Jocelyn should have been in the bottom for both her interview and her outfit. Trinity’s outfit was everything. BUT. But but but I feel that it was important for the audience to see Adore perform - just like when Jinkx faced off against Detox last season - and that she and Trinity pulled a Carmen/Raja sexy dance during their lip sync just meant so much to me. Trinity had all the confidence and Adore had all the charm, and that lip sync battle was perfection. The other queens should take note, because I -care- about these queens, and there are others still left that I just don’t… connect with that way.
Darienne Lake. For all I think she’s getting an intentionally sour edit, you can’t create something out of nothing and I think some of her defensiveness is coming out super nasty and catty and I’m not about that shit. I hated the whole Heathers/Boogers thing back in season 3, and I’m not about to put up with it from Miss Darienne.
Courtney Act. She’s flawless, but she lacks… charisma? Humility? I don’t know what to call it. I hate to try and say someone’s not being genuine when maybe they’re just confident and talented - I do not need to see you cry to respect you - but damn, Bianca doesn’t cry and I connect with her, so what’s your glitch Courtney? I just… she’s the hollywood film representation of a drag queen. She’s polished, perfect, poised, and just…. I’m sorry. She’s boring. I would rather see Adore swear nervously and sing with that shimmer of panic - that musical episode was all about Adore to me because you could tell she was nervous but - though she crushed it - that shiver in her voice gave her performance a boost of something -tangible- and just. Ugh. Everything. Courtney was perfect and deserved the win, but I rewatched Adore’s part 10 times, not hers.
Dela!!! I love Dela! She’s lovely and flawless and incredibly talented, but I feel like she should have competed in season 1 or 2. The show has moved away from rewarding these precise queens with excellent drag outfits and pristine make-up to recognizing these girls with loads of gumption and hapless charm. Sharon, Jinkx, and now Adore - that would create an established pattern. I feel like Dela would have won against Tyra and possibly Raja. Actually, I would love to see Raja versus Dela, or Chad vs. Dela. She deserves to compete against queens who are more craft/art focused, because she just looks too practiced against the other girls and that’s not fair to her. She’s wonderful and absolutely amazing, but somehow she’s being buried under this whole “no personality” thing which is total bullshit. Just because, like Trinity said, they can’t break you on the runway, doesn’t mean you’re not human. She just so happens to be damn good at what she does. Courtney too, dammit. I embrace vulnerability as much as the next person but shit son tell me to MY FACE that Dela and Courtney couldn’t go up against Nina Flowers and Ongina for style!!
Wow, that turned into a thing. I have a lot of Drag Race emotions.
Can I also state for the record that I’m fucking THRILLED they removed the “she-mail” thing from the opening act? That always got on my nerves, and I’m glad the recent backlash has clued RuPaul in to realizing that shit is not cute. (shouldn’t have taken 6 seasons, Ru, but thanks)
my favorite thing is that i will never be able to watch winter soldier without cackling at the milk inch
"what are you reading?"
"its a…online book."
"oh cool, what’s it about?"
I love that everyone just knows
"what are you writing?"
"oh cool, what’s it about?"
"can i read it?"
"well it’s not really finished yet…"
The odds of being attacked by a shark in the US are 1 in 11,500,000, but no one gets mad at people who want to avoid the ocean.
The odds of a woman being sexually assaulted in her lifetime are 1 in 6, but if she doesn’t feel safe around strange men she’s a stereotyping bitch.
Strange old world we live in.
EVERYBODY SHOULD READ THIS!!!!!!!!!
REBLOG…IT CAN SAVE A LIFE OR TWO!!!
WARNING: Some knew about the red light on cars, but not Dialing 112.
An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on. Lauren’s parents have always told her to never pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather to wait until they get to a gas station, etc.
Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly called, 112 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if there were police cars where she was and there weren’t, and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back up already on the way.
Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind her. One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground. The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes.
I never knew about the 112 Cell Phone feature. I tried it on my AT&T phone & it said, “Dialing Emergency Number.”
Especially for a woman alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarked car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going on to a safe place.
*Speaking to a service representative at Bell Mobility confirmed that 112 was a direct link to State trooper info. So, now it’s your turn to let your friends know about “Dialing, 112”
You may want to send this to every Man, Woman & Youngster you know; it may well save a life.
This applies to ALL 50 states
PLEASE PASS ALONG TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY, IT CAN SAVE A LIFE….
Works in Canada too guys, just tried it!
