Kim Clijsters wins US Open again

12 09 2010

She might not have played her best in most of the matches this tournament, but that is still enough to beat everyone. Maybe except for Serena, but she was not there so we will never know that. Have been a big fan for many years, so super excited!





That’s Gay

2 09 2010

My favorite thing on TV combined with my bf’s.

Queen from Ru Paul’s Drag Race and American Football.





Homosexuality and twins

14 07 2010

This clip reminded me so much of me and my twin- brother when we were kids. He as Zorro and me as a nurse. He with army toys and I was playing with My Little Pony. I wanted to be a girl like the kid in the clip for years but from 11/12 years on not anymore and never since.





Extreme weather

12 07 2010

Wow, I just experienced somewhat of the most extreme weather I have ever seen in the Netherlands. It has been super hot for days with heat index at around 108 and today around 1 pm all hell broke loose. Thunder/lightning and wind like a tornado. Car windows smashed, big tree branches collapsed, the roof of the train station and of several buildings collapsed and fell 100 meters further on the floor and tons of traffic lights broke in two. For some states in the U.S this might be common, here not so much and apparently we are also not very well prepared. Scary it was for sure.





School for boys who want to be girls

9 07 2010

New York has its own Vera’s finishing school for boys who want to be girls. Jesse Archer went over there and transformed into Mildred Fierce. For a boy who used to want to be a girl until he was 8(played with My Little Pony’s etc), I have surprisingly enough never been in drag. I think I will probably look like Jesse, not too pretty.





Update Beenie Man

21 06 2010

I am probably not the only that called the organization of Parkpop in the Hague because I just heard they cancelled Beenie Man!! The reason was the negative reactions they got over Beenie Man’s homophobic lyrics. Snoop Dog was apparently not cancelled because of himself but because of rivaling gangs attending his performance!?





Beenie Man family-friendlier than Snoop Dog?

21 06 2010

A music festival in the Hague, the Netherlands this coming sunday has cancelled Snoop Dog because he was not open and family friendly enough?? His replacement in Beenie Man, the homophobic reggae artist from Jamaica. In his lyrics he talked about executing gays and gay sex being disgusting. Sounds better than Snoop Dog right??? WTF. I just called the organization and they told me the city council of the Hague is against Snoop Dog performing and they think Beenie Man is OK now because he wrote an agreement last year that he would not ever sing about such things again. Something he only did because otherwise he did not get any gigs anymore,I said but the guy on the phone told me (very nicely) I cannot look in his brain and that is true. Hope the city council will do something about this, I sent them a digital complaint and am probably not the only one.





Sex and the City 2

19 06 2010

Finally I saw this movie yesterday evening with my sisters. After hearing all the negative reviews and the declining audience-numbers I was very curious to see if it was worse than the first movie or not at all. We were not disappointed. We had a great time, lots of laughs etc, but that might be due to the company as well. The beginning with the gay wedding scene with Liza was fabulous. According to a blog I read it took 300 takes for Liza to get it right but eventually it was pure bliss. Carrie is still the same Carrie; bony, whiney and self-absorbed. Very relatable to me! She needs to grow up a little though, being in your 40’s and still acting like a little girl does not work well anymore on her. With Samantha it is a different thing, she can get away with anything even though she is older. Charlotte was pretty funny, but the same cannot be said for Miranda. In the TV-series she used to be clever and witty but in the movies this does not come across the same at all. Some things in the Middle-East were a little far-fetched but if you love those girls they can get away with a lot. If there is going to be a third installment I want more NY, more sex and more comedy(mot lame but sharp). Regardless, if you are a fan you will love it!! So did we.





My TV crushes

18 06 2010

My first TV crush was Sean Connery when I was a young budding gay. He was masculine, adventurous, dark and brooding. Back then that was my thing. Then for years there was no one else until I watched the U.S version of Queer as Folk a few years back. Michael had a boyfriend named Dr David, played by Chris Potter in the first season and he is all I like in a man. Money, intelligence, a certain age and good body/face. Muscular but not ripped with a sex-pack. I always told my boyfriend Dr David was my perfect man, luckily those exist only in fiction. I know my partner has his fair share of celebrity crushes as well, very different type than mine though. Since a few weeks there is a new man in town though. On dutch gay channel OUTV there is a german krimi(detective show) that was on cable channel in SAT1 between 2002-2006. The detective was the first gay one on TV named Leo Kraft and he is played by Henning Baum. He and his best friend and colleague Nina Metz solve crimes and he is so hot. Deep manly voice, great muscular body, good face and smart as hell. He makes my thursday-night. My taste has changed from dark to blondish but the things that stayed are intelligent older and muscular. Curious to see who will be my number 4 will be.





I feel old

14 06 2010

Saturday I tried my nephew’s rip-stick, similar to a wave-board. I thought I would be cool and after seeing how good he was, I could do the same. Not. Within a minute I fell on my ass and hands. Just for some loose skin I thought I was fine until waking up the next morning with a super sore arm from trying to break the fall. Today it is even worse! After I fell my nephews said, well I forgot to tell you it is for people under 20. Ouch!!
