Since this is a long weekend, it’s the perfect time to stop and reflect
on what’s truly important in life – movie props.
Earlier this week, a Pop Candy reader came
up with a discussion idea that Whitney posted on the site: what movie props
would you most love to own? As usual, my mind took the question and applied
it to me-me-me and I started thinking about cool props from lesbian (or lesbianish)
movies. The first one I thought of is probably the most obvious.
But, actually, I think I’d rather have this.
Then I had to stop thinking about Mulholland
Dr. because I got a headache.
I broadened the category to include TV because of the one prop I’ve always
coveted: Gabrielle’s scroll from Xena.
But what fun would this be without asking the rest of AfterEllen.com to play?
So, be thinking about your list while I share more of mine.
Leaves of Grass from The Incredibly
True Adventures of Two Girls in Love. I used to read poetry to girlfriends,
too. Maybe if I still did, I wouldn’t be single. Hmm.
A page of the Rambaldi artifact from Alias. I miss you, Syd.
The basketball from Late
Not many lesbians seem to know about this movie, even though it was a Sundance
favorite when it came out. Let’s just say it gives a whole new meaning to the
The honey pot jar from Fried
OK, my friends, it’s your turn. Give us some props. (Sorry.)
