I’ve been listening to the Throwing Shade podcast with Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi for a few years now after falling in love with Bryan’s “That’s Gay” segments on the show infoMania on the former Current TV. The show summarizes itself as “taking a weekly look at all the issues important to ladies and gays… and treating them with much less respect than they deserve.” It’s hilarious while also focusing attention on important issues in our culture.
The great news is now they’re branching out into late-night TV! The show will be on TV Land, but unfortunately we’ll have to wait until early 2017 to see it. I’m greatly looking forward to it, and I really hope they keep the same incredibly inappropriate edge they have in the podcast.
Well, here I am, back on the Interwebs. After 4 long months away I’m thrilled to be back in touch with the outside world. For my fellow geeks, I’m running a 20Gb DSL connection and am really happy with the speeds I’m getting.
On a further geeky note, I added some additional login options for my comments. You can now just login with Facebook or Twitter, so you have no excuses not to leave comments.
Now, on to the good stuff. Excuse me while I turn into a shrieking 12 year old girl…OMGSH ARE YOU WATCHING GLEE!!?!!??!1 I’ve fallen in love with this show. The pilot was excellent, the second episode was underwhelming, but since then they’ve recovered nicely. Jane Lynch alone made me interested in the show; I loved her on the short-lived Lovespring International and she’s just laugh out loud funny. Jane Lynch aside, there’s a really sweet gay character and my favorite of all, a fiercely fabulous black woman.
Warning: If you’re a straight male who watches football, hunts, drives a pickup truck, or thought Sarah Palin was a good idea and/or should hold any elected office then you probably won’t like Glee.
If you haven’t watched the show yet, do it before Hulu decides to pull it down.
There’s the light stuff. I’ll get to what’s really been going on in my life in a future post.
