Hey good lookin’.
I have really good news for people who were big into Sleater-Kinney. Lesbian member o’ the band, Carrie Brownstein, has successfully transitioned into a music writer and now actress since the band’s demise. But she is finally returning to music in a new band that includes her old SK bandmate Janet Weiss. Although she doesn’t give much more detail on the new outfit, she does say that she could see a new album come out from Sleater-Kinney in “the next five years.” Grown up riot grrls, rejoice!
It’s refreshing to hear someone embrace those kinds of tunes instead of push themselves farther away from “lesbian” music.
The sci-fi film Earthling (not to be confused with the initial genius name of The L Word) made its debut at SXSW and features a lesbian student named Abby who hooks up with her teacher, Jude, and also attempts to “impregnate” one of her peers with an “alien slug baby.” io9 has a full review with clips.
Queering Edgar Allen Poe is cool, in theory. The Pit and the Pendulum is now on DVD, complete with gay characters and lesbian makeout scenes. Here’s the trailer.
Word to your gran, Lily.
The lesbian that was on What Not to Wear talked with her local paper and said she had a fine experience being told her fashion sucked. Anne Concemi told the Andover Townsman, “I don’t fit into the [lesbian] stereotype at all, but I’d never dress like a housewife of the Orange County either.” Now Anne says she is more in tune with what to look for. “I know the sizes, I know the fit, and I know what just does not look good,” she said.
See you tomorrow!
