LESBIAN QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"Britney’s new haircut makes her look like a butch dyke. I like it. I think
I’ll her marry her, but I’ll have to do it in the U.K."
— Out singer Beth Ditto of The Gossip, on Britney Spears, according to unsubstantiated
LOVE THEIR LIFE
A reader (thanks Cat!) tipped me off to a new-ish Japanese lesbian movie based
on a manga called Love
My Life, which is not the depressing 1993 movie My Life starring
Michael Keaton as a father dying of cancer, but according to Yuri blogger Erica Friedman, it’s a "a really cute movie with an undoubtedly happy end where
the girl got the girl." Read a more detailed synopsis here.
It looks like a fun movie, although I can’t really figure out what’s going
on in the trailer since I don’t speak Japanese, and unfortunately, neither does
my half-Japanese girlfriend. I can’t exactly throw stones, though, since it’s
not like I speak Polish, Norwegian or Danish fluently. Or at all. Although
I do have a rusty reading knowledge of French, and I taught myself some Yiddish
in college (Jewish girlfriend). The latter ought to be a big help when the next
Yiddish lesbian movie comes out. Just like my girlfriend’s minimal knowledge
of Tlingit (her other half) will come in handy the next time there’s an Alaskan
Native version of High Art.
Where was I? Oh yeah: Love My Life. Not a Michael Keaton movie. Happy
lesbian ending. Check it out!
SHE SAID WHAT?
week, we discuss hot women at the Oscars, South of Nowhere and
filmmaker Sam Farinella’s Alix Olson documentary, Left Lane.
Next week on SSW: Kim Stolz talks about life after America’s Next Top Model,
and I finally learn how to talk in short sentences. Well, one of those two things
is true, anyway.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Starting next week, Scribe Grrrl’s L Word recaps won’t be posted until
late Monday nights, and her podcast will be up on Wednesday nights. And since
there don’t appear to be any lesbian or bi contestants on Cycle 8 of America’s
Next Top Model, we won’t be recapping the show, but our brother site AfterElton.com
is, so check their site every Friday for your weekly
ANTM recap fix.
That's it for this week! Check back next Friday for another edition of Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever.
