Fierceness

I am, apparently, the only gay man in the universe who despises the television so-called show Glee.   Hate. It.  I would prefer having Chlorox injected in my brain and the two times I have suffered my way though an entire episode, I have considered doing just that in order to erase the horror.

And yet, because I am of the internet world, I cannot escape it.  How humiliating that I have no idea who the Prime Minister of Japan is, but I know the weasely little white gay boy is boyfriends with the one in the bow tie.  A bow tie?

Through those same inescapable channels, word has reached me of a fabulous cover of Boogie Shoes on a recent episode by a tranny, who may or may not be a new character.  I couldn't figure out from the bits I read if he's a guest star or what and didn't have the stomach to do any real research.  Let's just leave it at a new-ish guy who likes to dress like a Lady.

And can sing!  Girl!  I think I may love him.  In fact, if they would line up all the other characters (except Jane Lynch) and shoot them so the show would consist of the new tranny guy and her, I would watch it.  I would also watch the show where they shot all the ones I don't like, but then, I'm just petty like that.

And as the dear Princess commented on Infomaniac, I also HATE HATE HATE fucking Blogger's new fucking lay out when I'm just trying to post my drivel.  Hate.

    The Google thing: So annoying, I guess they are trying to push us out.

    1. I know MJ explained how to circumvent the changes and get back to old school blogging, but I'm too lazy to do so. I'd rather just complain.

  2. I haven't quite managed to sit through a whole episode of this trashy teenage twaddle, fortunately I seldom remember when it is on the telly. But that gurl can sing sistah!

    As for Bloggers rude changes... It is definitely the latest increment in google's attempted world domination....
    Just unplug the machine I say!

    1. My theory is as long as youtube cuts out the twaddle and gives you this, who needs the show?

  3. Wait - where's the tranny?

    Oooooooooh.

    Girl is fine. That is some, as I believe the parlance goes (or went, once upon a decade) fierce realness.

    1. Did you SEE when he did his little Bette Midler run across the stage in his giant silver lame pumps? Real realness. Really.

  4. As a gay who watches Glee, that tranny is/was a contestant on a reality show where kids tried out to be on Glee and he was one of the finalists.
    I don't know is he's a one-shot or not.
    There, I've done my Googley-Gay-Goodness for the day!

    1. Thank you for the G-G-G. Since the rest of the cast portraying high-schoolers is going to be ready for Medicare pretty soon, maybe it's this kid's turn? Just sayin....

  5. I, too loathe "Glee" - karaoke for the infantile. I think your idea of a Columbine-style massacre could only be a good thing...

    As for the new Blogger interface - WTF? Horrible.

    1. The blogger update seems to fall in the "change for its own sake" category.

  6. Frankly, I've never seen the show.

    Thankfully, I work in a real high school....so I get to see better tranny musical productions in the hallway every day.

  7. i've NEVER watched glee. i thought about it, but ignored the impulse. the bloke i just watched here was great, like to think of him as,"latrice, the very early years."

    as for blogger, i haven't run into what it is that you speak of. maybe it will be waiting for me when i figure out what to post next?

  8. You're not alone. I would rather cut one of my tits off, turn it inside out and wear it on my head for a beret than watch that pile of shit.

  9. I wanted to see if I could reply to all the comments the way MJ at Infomaniac does. I now see she is a better woman than I. This is more work than writing the damn post. From now on, please consider your comments read and cherished even if I am silent as patience on a monument.

    1. The last time I saw Patience on a monument, she was shrieking in the throes of a Big O. You must know a different Patience than I.

  10. Peenee, you are in good company. I will go you one further: I sometimes feel like I am the only gay man alive who hates live "theatre". And if you mention "Community Theatre", my blood runs cold.

    1. Oh, dear - and Jerry Herman always has such nice things to say about you... Jx

    2. Well if Jerry would call me, we could discuss it. But he never calls. So there you have it, no?

    3. I live in San Francisco with so many ferral crazies crowding the streets that I get plenty pf "community theater" just riding the damn bus.

      Delete
    4. Not that kinda community theatre sweetie. I'm talking no talent directors telling their no talent actors to "reach into the very marrow of your soul" and pull out Annie Get Your Gun. Or posters claiming "Ahmad Rodreiguez is Tevia".

  11. I hasten to add that I have never watched a single episode of Glee and never will. I simply can't be bothered.

    Love Jane Lynch, though.

    1. I want to hang out with Jane Lynch, saying mean things, yakking it up and giggling.

    2. Wait. Don't you have me for that?

  12. Dear god, what a lot of activity! I feel like the party ended before I even got there. But . . . I totally don't get the Glee thing; I tried to watch it after people kept posting on FB about how much they loved it. It made me consider getting different friends.

    1. Like the girl with a curl in the middle of her forehead, when Glee is good, it is very, very good; when it is bad (much of the time), it is horrid.

      It did help bring Jane Lynch and Kristen Chenowith to a larger audience, and revive interest in some older songs and performers. On the other hand, some of the musical performances sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks having their teeth drilled.

      Delete
    2. Things that people keep posting on FB are often best ignored.

    3. Oh Thom, you're right as usual!

      Delete
    4. I just ignore FB altogether. I find life is much easier that way.

  13. Glee???? Brings anything but, for me! Im don't watch either!

  15. I don't make it must see TV but I did catch this number when it aired as the TV in my house is in every room and always on and has a mind of its own.

    It must be said that things have changed since I attended high school, what with all the glee and the out in the open trannies, gay boys, and dykes.

    In my day high school was a hellish prison for children.

  16. Drivel is precisely the right word.
