Minor notes:

1. Oakley at Joanne's framing department did not steer me wrong. His choice was pure genius. If you want to see what I mean, uh, drop by I guess.

2. I met the agent for the neglected hulk next door. The owner has finally decided to pass on this poor sad rotted excuse for a house and the results of his years of cruel neglect to someone else. For $250,000. That ass. I guess I won't be running my social work practice out of there once I fix it up. (Nevermind not having a degree or a license.)

3. Still have cake in the house. May die of cake poisoning. Not complaining.

4. The L-word: I'm 4 episodes in and not so impressed. Is Shane seriously supposed to be the most butch lesbian on this show? Ever?

Butch? No. Merely hot. There are no butch lesbians on the L Word. But then, it's L.A.

When I was doing research about the show seeing if I wanted to own the DVD collection, I thought there was a 'butch' lesbian. Or maybe she was just a 'tomboy'.

She is hot. But I want to give her a sandwich.

Her and EVERY SINGLE PERSON ON THE SHOW. It is really ridiculous and pains me, like, hello. Isn't there a LITTLE feminism in our lesbianism? Fine fine, the L Word isn't reality, but can't there be ONE non-skeletal girl?

Sing it, sister.

At one point they see some butch lesbians and (gently) mock them, does that count?

You wish I was kidding. You WISH!

I do. And the next worst thing? I asked netflix to bring me season 1 disc 2. Even though I hate LA!!! HATE!

We'll see what it takes for me to quit and go back to getting netflix to send me Golden Girls.

Golden Girls kicks @$$.
Estelle Getty rules. ;)

I am sad. :(

I don't hate you! I hate the "LA"-ness of the show though, which plays up the LA lifestyle pretty aggressively.

I know. I just am sad when people say stuff like that. There's definitely a certain lifestyle that the entertainment industry promotes as "the LA lifestyle", but really, a lot of us live pretty normal ones. Mine's a bit too much in the long hours at work, and there are a LOT of people here, but other than that I don't really see this "LA" thing as much. I bought into the "I hate LA" thing when I lived in the Bay Area (bashing LA is an art form there), but once I moved here I found it quite nice. Well, except that I really miss rain and snow. :)

So is The L Word like Sex and the City but with no wieners? (haha! I said wiener. sigh...)

So far (4 episodes) less funny, more sex.
Aug. 3rd, 2005 06:12 pm (UTC)
Hrm. Sex is great and all, but I liked the funny more. Course I also watched because of my gigantic crush on Big. Mmmmm. Sexy smile and sarcastic humor. I'm sooo in love.
Aug. 3rd, 2005 07:00 pm (UTC)
Yeah I would really appreciate less long sex scenes (obviously the show will be somewhat about sex, fine. but if the show was a little better written so that they made more sense and were not just "ooh ooh there are two chicks"...) and more funny. we'll see i am still giving it a chance. first eps of anything are never all that great. except firefly.

I wonder if the Oakley at your framing store is the same Oakley I know in your area.

I've heard the only cure for cake poisoning is more cake. :)
Aug. 3rd, 2005 07:00 pm (UTC)
that would be weird. how many oakleys can there be?

i'll give that antidote a try when i get home. :)

Lived to be thirty, then suddenly passed away of acute cake poisoning. Enh, not a bad way to go. =)

You should Check out _Queer as Folk_ too. It's got that skinomax feel, but with hottie men instead. ;-)
Aug. 4th, 2005 04:05 pm (UTC)
I specifically was hoping for less skinomax feel. :( When I watched Sex & the City even when watching the sex scenes it felt like they had a purpose in the story, so I could sit through them. (Background: I am made VERY uncomfortable emotionally during sex scenes on screen. VERY. It's rare I can sit through one.)

ahhh. okay, then you don't want to watch QaF afterall... it's, at least, twice as bad.

The L Word is not as good, plot-wise, as Sex & the City... and it doesn't really get much better. However, I think underneath the "Hollywood" they're trying to address some issues, etc.... I think they're trying to appeal more to people outside the culture, and unfortunately that comes with some stereotyping... that also means, it's not really a show for people with whom homosexuality is commonplace.

Basically, I'm trying to be understanding in hopes that it creates progress, and trying not to be offended... for different reasons than you though, as I could watch it for the skinomaxian qualities alone, and forget the rest. ;-)
