Random Love: Julia Sugarbaker.

.

To start, let's stipulate that Dixie Carter was conservative. She probably would've disagreed with much of what I'd state as kind of obvious, since I'm not religious [this isn't the same as 'atheist' despite what many would say] - I can overlook this because this post is about the character of Julia Sugarbaker. A woman who was annoyingly opinionated, fierce, willing to almost... almost... be rude when it suited her.

But damned if she didn't have some fantastic rants.

So, yes. I love her as a character.

KILLING THE RIGHT PEOPLE   ... 
[as a young gay, scared to death that SEX=DEATH because of the 80's AIDS crisis, this hit home. I wish I could tell the younger folk who never knew the 80's that this was exaggerated. It wasn't. This was the time when suicide seemed like a mercy to our parents, so they wouldn't be faced with the embarrassment of telling friends and family that their kid was a homo. Thank God, Harsens-Rob's family and friends had known all along and didn't react in the way he expected, and was ready to accept. It seems OTT, but it wasn't at the time. People, especially those who'd 'sinned' with whores, mistresses, ect. were more than happy to spit in your face if it allowed them to believe that 'GOD' was punishing you, and they had nuthin' to fear. It was a dark, dark period].


The Night The Lights Went Out In GEORGIA[You must recite this line as printed. No, just watch it, and from now on, recite it as Julia. And when you hear anyone shaming the overweight, think of her. Plus, also -- always feel free to cut somebody off when they try to squirm out of acknowledging the appalling shit they've just spewed.]


Whatever her personal views, I admire Dixie Carter for being so convincing in her recitation of her lines for her character.

Random Love: "Somebody That I Used to Know" parodies.

.

I KNOW!!

I can't explain this shit. I just find myself freaking "liking" them on Youtubish. WHY?! What is my obsession with this song?

I need help. But since there isn't a free psychiatrist hanging out behind my chair, I present these. Maybe by sharing the madness, I'll get over it.
[These aren't even added to YouTube Favorites because I don't even like them that much... but I can't stop myself anyway.]


Some Study That I Used To Know

Somebody That I Used To Troll

Somebody That I Used To Blow   [jeez, I miss sex]  Um... this one is NSFW - despite being done with dolls [Uh... Lilo and uhm.. Frank Castle - The Punisher? ... and Earring Ken maybe?] , unless your company has an unusually lax attitude about adult comedy, in which case I'm totally jealous and you should keep it to yourself.

Obama That I Used To Know [Poor President Obama. So much vitriol over the past 8 years. Surprise to everyone who doesn't know how gov't works... the President isn't an Emperor. If Congress won't cooperate and if the Supremes second guess his directives, then yes... he really is quite limited in what he can do.]

Captain America - Some Bucky That I Used To Know [Which I'm just objecting to on principal. I'm so effing sick of comic characters who are DEAD only to suddenly be not dead. Listen asshats... If you don't have more creativity than this to create your own characters with enough personality to grab imaginations, then f'ing quit.]

Somebody That I Used To Blow [yeah, again... but with people rather than plastic, which I suppose means it's even less for work viewing-- Unless your work place is so lax in attitude that I want to hunt you down, kill you and take your place  -- uhm and different lyrics like "Still I let you kiss me where I pee..."  Oh! And it's quite gay].

Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments: Angel & Faith

.


Best of / Worst of Character Moments with Angel & Faith, Season 02, Issue #1.

With Giles back in the land of the living, Faith has decided on some time away from Angel's drama-drama while the vampire tries to protect the traumatized citizens of the newly christened "Magic Town".


Our focus characters for my critical eye are: Angel and Faith.

There are several others, but I'm counting them as cameos, some literally, some glorified.
