Morning Brew – Thursday, Feb. 10: Misster brings androgyny to Taiwan, lesbians birth twins on “One Born Every Minute”

Good morning!

Check out the hot blonde in the beginning of this trailer for the new film Paul.

So it looks like Jane Lynch might only be in a small part of the film, but I bet it’s one of the funniest scenes. I mean, look at her hair.

Keira Knightley and Elisabeth Moss had a great official opening night of The Children’s Hour in London last night. Filmmaker Gurinder Chadha was in attendance, and told a reporter:

I thought it was very powerful, I’m a bit overcome. I’m so proud of Keira.


After the standing ovation, the women headed to an afterparty, wearing much more glamorous garb than they do on stage.

Out musician Sophie B. Hawkins is performing at the Conservative Political Action Conference this year. It might seem like an odd choice, but she’s part of an invite-only GOProud event, and said of her participation:

I want the Congress that really is going to listen to the people. I really don’t care what party it is anymore.

It all goes down in D.C. tonight.

Carey Mulligan didn’t give up the role of Lisbeth Salander to Rooney Mara without a fight. She told Radio Times:

I auditioned for it three times. I dyed my hair black, got fake nose rings and covered my face in black make-up. So yeah, I would have loved that part.

Since we’re already redoing it once, how about we just keep trying it out with different it girls? I’m OK with that.

On Lifetime’s One Born Every Minute this week, lesbian couple Rochelle and Corene welcomed the birth of their twins. The super fun part? They used two different donors (one black, one white) so they’re not sure which one made it through.

Grandma was like “Oh boy!”

You can watch the full episode at MyLifetime.com.

Check out this new band from Taiwan called Misster. Let’s just say they’re my idea of a hot boi band.

I don’t even know which one to choose as my favorite to plaster all over my wall. I guess I’ll just have to choose all of them.


You can find out more about them at their official website, but it would be helpful if you spoke Chinese. And if you do, can you go through their site and tell me if any of them are single and interested in American women? It’s for journalistic purposes. (Thanks for the tip LT!)

Amelia Posada and Erika Nakamura, the owners of Lindy and Grundy, who we featured in this week’s Good Taste, are one of Brand X magazine’s powerhouse couples. They talk about getting married, how they get romantic and “their song”:

“This Must Be the Place” by the Talking Heads. We each have part of the lyrics to that song tattood on us, and we played that song while we cut our wedding cake.

They are ridiculously adorable/cool.

Today in lesbianish TV: The Ellen DeGeneres Show (check local listings), The Talk (CBS 2 p.m.), Cat Cora on The Best Thing I Ever Ate (Food Network 7:30 p.m.), Community (NBC 8 p.m.), The Rachel Maddow Show (MSNBC 9 p.m. and midnight), Grey’s Anatomy (ABC 9 p.m.), Private Practice (ABC 10 p.m.) and Mango Kiss (Logo Thu/Fri 4 a.m.) (Thanks Roni!)

We have a lot of fun stuff for today. Come back and you won’t be disappointed. Scout’s honor!
