Re: ““Game of Thrones” Season 4, Episode 1: “Two Swords”


I do believe Dontas gave her that hair piece. Which does make sense for the upcoming episodes/plot.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 6: Rap Battle Extravaganza

As much as I liked MILK, his range was limited. I noted his Dina Martina t-shirt in the workroom -- & I think he has the potential to evolve into a freak superstar like Miss Martina. Look forward to spectating his trajectory.

Re: “"RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 6, Episode 2: Meet the REST of the Queens


Bianca: absolutely loved her from the moment she made the first joke about drag queens never being early. :P Love her.


Jolsyn: I do like her, and the black horse thing was just hilarious.

Milk: WOW!... on that entrance I died... and on the behind the scenes interviewsWOW! what a man, just gorgeous. I love the style, but considering how late I joined to this comments, now I fear she won't be able to show anything else. Still love her... still think he is the most handsome ever on the show... but fear for him.

Courtney: Is the fact that now Simon Sherry Wood is on the show related to Courtney... I mean, together on that super sexy hallowed costume: HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish I could have seen them up close to see that make up :P because he seems to be almost naked, oh this is heating up... so back to it. Love Courtney.

Darien Lake: so gorgeous.... loved the performance and I hope stays for long.

Magnolia: stink face, stinky attitude, hope nobody ever talks about her so she does not gain any fame at all.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 1: Meet Your Queens (Well, Half of Them)

Hello, I just recently discovered this blog.
Greeting from the Netherlands.

I love your reviews and I look forward to read them after every episode.

If I may add my two cents:

1. Adore: I like her from the beginning, I think the runway was awful but the way she conducted herself was charming and thus saved. I look forward to seeing more of this character.

2. Dela for short (:P): to be honest I hated her the moment she walked in (that red bull/energizer bunny entrance was so annoying), fortunately this was a 2 seconds feeling. I liked her after. I think this is top 3 material.

3. Gia:

4. Lasagna: Although her fashion sense is absolutely nice, the death drops are so shangela, so I am not surprised by her. Personality: ....... next.

5. April: I absolutely loved her/him the minute she walked in. I think the runway was amazing and now as I write this weeks late, I wish she had moved forward in the competition. She did not deserve to go so soon.

6. Kelly: she was robbed, despite how good vivacious lip synk was, for what vivacious did later on... is a travesty that Kelly had to go so soon. If she had stayed, I am sure she would have don a good job on episode 3 and thus moving forward in the competition. But I definitely did not see her in top 6 material.

7. Vivacious... glad she is gone. Should have been the first one.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 5: Snatch Game!

I was also thinking that for versatility as in new look every runway, we should call Tyra, raja or the ultimate queen Sharon needles. They really were innovative on every episode.
Michelle visage is blind because she used to call Sharon on her lack of versatility but if we recap, Sharon has girly look on episode 2, kind of feminine not so spooky on episode 4, super glam looks worthy of Italian vogue on the bitch ball , so hello! Pay attention visage.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 5: Snatch Game!

I adore your reviews.¿ but not delano which means something sexual in Spanish :P

Absolutely agree :)

Dela: true star, true top 3 material. Love his character. I wish the shown does not set her up with a curve-ball: "can you do anything young?". I root for dela.

Bianca: true judge del rio, he is right on all critics towards lasagna. I love her interaction with Adore against the pathological need for attention and passive aggressiveness of lasagna. Bianca is also in my top three along with dela. About versatility?, yes maybe she has a very defined style, it could be his weakness for when the judges come for him, but I love it. For what I care he can do the same look because is great for me. :P

Adore: before even if her challenges and runway sucked, I was rooting because I just like his character :P but now that I saw that besides charm there is real talent, love him more. :P I adore adore. And just for confronting Lasagna on her bullshit, adore just won the race :P Might be young but is miles away from the stupidity club: Gia and lasagna.

Darienne: is just great :)

Courtney: Love him and her :P gorgeous man, gorgeous woman. Versatility?, that is a tricky thing to say because none of then can actually do it.. they are their own... in everything. Does she deliver?: absolutely, at least she did not repeat dresses as MILK repeated leggings/shoes/undies/waist band in the first entrance and third episode. (Bullfighter inspired look and Pinocchio look)

Joslyn is so charming, I like her and definitely is my miss congeniality. Is she the Dita Ritz of this season?.. sneaking all the way to top 5 without being really noticed?. The comments she makes.... hilarious!!!!.

Trinity: ........................ neutral just not top 6 please.

Milk: repeated leggings/shoes/undies/waist band in the first entrance and third episode. (Bullfighter inspired look and Pinocchio look)... so if you ask for Bianca and Courtney to show versatility: recap MILK's looks. I LOVE HIM as so handsome he is, and as drag queen as well... but recap please, that excuse of "I am just weird and different" is not gonna cut it.

Gia: finally gone as fast as a wink... I mean: A blink.

Lasagna: at this point... who?... dunno who is that anymore.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 5: Snatch Game!

Oh I so concur regarding Laganja and the Millenials. I was just going to tell my 26 year old friend he reminds me of her, and now I have a full explanation to read to him! I live in New York City (I stumbled upon this blog through google, they are my favourite recaps better than AV Club's imo), but I've been saying to everyone Laganja is a Metro drag, which is the popular gay bar in Brooklyn, aka where the junior drags perform for all the Millenials. She, and they, are not yet ready for the big time.
Btw, I grew up in Buffalo and have fond memories of Darien Lake-the park not the woman! Lol

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 5: Snatch Game!

why is everybody targetting Milk regards variety? How much variety are the others giving? Is Courtney versatile? Most drag queens have a certain style and generally stick to it. Indeed, in real life stars generally have a certain schtick they become known for. Its branding. And its not like the producers ddint know what they were getting when he got on the show. Yes, he could show more personality. But as far as his looks go I see nothing wrong with him doing his own thing. The others serve the same looks mostly. His looks are crazy but hardly similar.

As for laganja he just needs to find himself and stop trying so hard to make an impression. He's like every annoying cliche in the book. That OTT act grates very fast. Thankgod we have Bianca there to cut him down. He'll thank him later for doing so.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 5: Snatch Game!

Well, we millennials are the product of the previous generation's parenting, so . . .

Sorry, was that predictably bitchy/ whiny enough for you?

Personally, I just feel sorry for Laganja. She obviously needs some kind of love that she isn't getting, and that sucks. With that said, I want her off my television screen! I don't hate her; I just want her to go away.

I agree with you about Milk. I think she's clearly smart (and sweet), but she doesn't strike me as being particularly funny, nor does she seem particularly good with words. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but you've got to provide us with something else to grab onto instead. She hasn't really done that yet.

P.S. Every week I fall more in love with Joslyn! Did anyone else think it was hilarious that her 2.5 second impression of Fran Drescher was better than Courtney Act's entire shtick?

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 5: Snatch Game!

I LOVEEE reading your reviews.

I'm glad your perspective on Adore and Joslyn have changed. I'm just crossing my fingers Bianca doesn't actually pick up that 'true terror' character. All of her comments (especially her comebacks) so far make so much gawd damn sense.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 5: Snatch Game!

I know a lot of millennials, and they are a lot more like Adore and a lot less like Laganja, maybe because I live inner city, which isn't really the life a pampered kitten wants. You live in a cat box and you have to change your own litter. Thats pretty typical of any twink no matter what generation though. Its what makes them twinks.
You are spot on about Josyln, she is well on her way to the finals.
What Ben and Bianca can't do is all american diva lipsync -- when Jinkz got handed Yma Sumac for a lip sync it was like the show was rigged. For what its worth I know Ru from way back when and lip syncing isn't his forte either, 1/2 the queens would send him packing.

Re: “Theater Review: Geva Theatre Center's "Informed Consent"

I think this is a very important play. It raises issues we should all be thinking about. I really think it is less about science and religion than it is about who we are, how much of our own identity is in the stories we live and tell. This has universal application. Are we living the story we want? Are we telling our family members our stories now? Can we find ways to make our stories vital to our communities? And....when our own story conflicts with another's...then what? How do we act, or react, or tell that story? A very, very important play that raises these topics in a way that allows us to think about them in new ways. Please go and take your friends and family.

Though she's not a performer, former Rochesterian and Bishop Kearney grad Bernie Caulfield is Executive Producer of the HBO series "Game of Thrones."

Re: “More local boys (and girls) done good

I'm not sure these individuals performed before leaving Rochester, but these names quickly came to my mind:

Peter Breck - Big Valley TV show
Foster Brooks - comedian
Louise Brooks - silent film star
Renee Flemming - does opera count as theater?
Robert Forester -Medium Cool (acad. award nomination for supporting actor)
John Lithgow - 2 x supporting actor nominee; 3rd Rock From the Sun
Hugh O'Brien - Wyatt Earp tv series
