I hope you had a fab weekend. I went to a Portlandia event at Portland’s feminist bookstore/lending library, In Other Words. Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen took questions, pictures and explained why they love shooting at the store, which fans of the show might recognize as Women & Women First.
I can’t wait for Season 2!
Also over the weekend, Chely Wright and Lauren Blitzer got hitched in front of 200 people. Congrats to the happy blonde couple!
Now you might not believe me, but I think Curb Your Enthusiasm is one of the best shows with lesbians on it around. Carol Leifer and Wanda Sykes guest star often and last night’s episode featured Rosie O’Donnell in a hilarious face off with Larry David. Here they fight over the same girl and decide she must be bisexual, after she gave her number to both of them.
If you have a chance to catch the whole episode, you should.
GIrl/Girl Scene has released a trailer for its upcoming sixth episode. Such a tease!
