MEN IN LUST

DVR ALERT: SNL PREMIER W/ SETH MACFARLANE AND FRANK OCEAN

Tonight is the season premiere of Saturday Night Live! Guest host is Seth MacFarlane (sooo sexy) and musical guest is recently out Frank Ocean. We'll also get to meet the new cast members.

The Presidential election brings out the best in SNL and this year they may not have Tina Fey as Sarah Palin (I'm sure there'll be a guest appearance or two) but the Romney/Ryan ticket is a bonanza of comedic material. So if you have plans to be out, make sue you set the DVR or you'll be watching all the good parts on your computer.


DOGABLY PAWFECT LOYALTY

Six years ago, Capitan's master died and was buried. The man had died in the city and was taken to a cemetery that was extremely far from the home where he had lived with the dog. After the burial, no one in the family noticed the dog was missing. Then, one day they went to the cemetery and there was Capitan at the grave. The dog had found it on his own. Now, everyday, at 6pm the dog makes the journey from his home to the cemetery to lie beside the grave of his master. He has done so everyday for the past six years.

MEN'S SEXY FEET

THE NEW NORMAL: REVIEWED

NBC has aired the first two episodes of The New Normal this week and seem to be giving it a lot of exposure. YEAH! Especially since it's on the Million Mom's hit list. The show did well it's first night, being seen by 7 million households for a 2.5% share. They also aired an episode after the Olympics.

David
Bryan
Nana/Jana
                         
                          Goldi
Rocky
Shania
I was not impressed by the pilot. I was put off by the overly stereotypical characters and way too similar  to Will and Grace characters. Also, Bryan's (played by the super cute Andrew Rannells) reason for wanting a child was way too superficial -- he wanted to dress it. But I loved it when the little girl, Shania, unfriended her Nana (Ellen Barkin). I wasn't sure why or how David and Bryan ever became a couple because they are soooo different but they have two scenes in bed and kiss on the lips so points for that.

So basically:

  • David (Justin Bartha) is Will - a straight acting, sports loving, doctor who didn't come out until he finished med school and met Bryan.
  • Bryan (Andrew Rannells) is Jack, very flamboyant, quick witted, fashion and pop culture, and super gay.
  • Nana/Jana (Ellen Barkin) is Karen, a cross between Archie Bunker and Lisa Campanella. No one is as good as she is and she's not racist or bigoted because "only the gays could keep her looking so good. 
  • Goldi (Georgia King) is Grace but without the self absorption. She's kinda pure of heart and wants to create a better life for her daughter by finally striking out on her own by earning her money by being David and Bryan's surrogate.
  • Shania (Bebe Wood) is a new character and is a show stealer. She marches to her own beat and loves her mother and just rolls here eyes at her Nana.
  • Rocky (NeNe Leaks) is Rosario, and is basically the same as her character on Glee (it is a Ryan Murphy show) which is fine because she does it well and has just enough screen time.
The second episode was a vast improvement and guarantees that I'll be watching (and so will you) for the first run half of the season at least. How can you not when after Shania (the little girl) spends the entire episode dressed and speaking (brilliantly!!) as Little Edie of Grey Gardens after she watches the documentary. I was dying!

Bryan (the gayer one) completely warms up to Shania and is so good with her - they have wonderful chemistry. We get a flash back (which I think there'll be a lot of) of how David and Bryan met and it is very sweet and heartfelt and totally believable. So other things happen and they do get pregnant. 

Overall, keeping in mind that this is a sitcom, it can be forgiven for some things. After seeing the second show, I think character development will continue and the foundation of a solid show has been laid. Fingers crossed!

MEN IN LEATHER

TMI ANSWERS: BACK TO SCHOOL


BACK TO SCHOOL
1. What level of education have you earned? Where?
After a bit of a rocky start, I earned my BBA at Adelphi University while living at home and working two or three part-time jobs at a time. I then went into a full-time MBA program at Clark University, Graduate School of Management in Worcester, MA. It was two of the best years of my life. I was VP of the Graduate School of Management and not only became a member of the A group, I actually became the nice Heather. It really changed my life.


2. If you went to college, did you join the greek system?
No. I wasn't attracted to it (I thought I'd only get black balled or beat up) and since I was working so much, I wouldn't have had time.


3. If money and time weren't an issue, would you go back to school? What would you study?
I've thought about it, language and computers for fun, counseling for profession, but feel like I've lost some capacity to learn in a classroom environment. 


4. Ever make it under the bleachers?
No, but do the bathrooms count?

5. Knowing what you know now, what would you change about your education?
YES! I would study much harder in high school and not let the bullies who made fun of me for doing well suppress me. I would also go away to college - it is the time in your life when you really become an adult and I think if I had I would have come out then and not many years later.
Bonus
What was your best or worst experience in school?
My best experience in school was in Grad School. I really was able to be the person I am - friendly, out going, confident, a leader - although I didn't come out then it helped me to later. I was elected to VP of the Graduate School of Management, started a monthly newsletter that actually was granted a small budget and ran for several years after I graduated, was the Grad School Rep to the board of trustees, and became not only a member of the A group but also one of its leaders. (that was worth repeating) Best of all, I became friends with people from all over the world - over 30 countries and 5 continents - many of whom I'm still in touch with.

NEXT WEEK:
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR LOVE?

I invite you to:
