Morning Brew: Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2010


Hi, Humpday-ers!

You’ve heard “Pants on the Ground,” but have you heard “Boobs Out Your Blouse?” Wanda Sykes, you never fail to amuse me!

Speaking of hilarious gay women, The Big Gay Sketch Show is gearing up for Season 3, and putting on a show as part of San Francisco Sketchfest Feb. 1.

If a photo of the posed comedians aren’t enough to entice (or you won’t be able to make it to the event), here’s a video to tide you over: “When Dykes Attack.”

Want to help in Haiti? Here’s a list of 20 things you can buy that will give to the country in need. You need a Gaga T-shirt anyway, don’t you?

Bisexual musician Amanda Palmer has a new project called Evelyn Evelyn, a duo with Jason Webley. It’s very vaudeville-Dresden Doll-esque. Check out their track “My Sister Evelyn.”

Speaking of Amanda Palmer, she’s in good company in a new book, Meeting in the Ladies Room. Rosie O’Donnell, Sarah Bettens, and Jen Foster have all contributed essays on having their own space. It’s got great photography as well, so check it out if you’re, you know, into women and spaces.

Naomily’s Skins co-star Kaya Scodelario (who plays Effy Stonem) told The Sun that she would have loved to join in on the Sapphic storyline. “Acting out lesbian scenes would have been really fun,” she said. “I have so much respect for Kat and Lily that they can make it work because neither of them are lesbians but it looks so beautiful and real.” I think many fans would agree. Effy as a lesbian? I could see that being beautiful, as well.

A review of a new Bengali film Cha-E-Chuti says that it’s not very good, even with a hyped girl-on-girl kiss. “The lesbian leaning of Locket [Chatterjee] looks forced,” writes Washington Bangla Radio. “Her publicized kiss with Dona [Das] had no effective build-up.

Know any “fesbians“? Apparently there’s a “former lesbian” trend, and a trend in calling bisexuals or women who have ever been with women and men anything but what they are. Hasbian, fauxmosexual — cuter. Stop trying to make fesbian happen!

Talk to you Thursday.
