All of the dresses have names and I just had to jot them down because they were pretty unique (as LDS names tend to be).

2020.07.05 23:04 quernika How come B+ and above celebrities, half Asian/Asian women never dated Asian men?

They tout their horns about Asian men (once it got mainstream) but never really dated any Asians. The majority are white, and some black men. Few examples Munn, Kimora, etc. Why is this? Are there actresses that did?
Is it because there are fewer successful A+ Asian men in western media? So then does it feel petty when they do a SJW for Asian men?

標 Mark

訓読み- No importa tanto
音読み- ヒョウ
ejemplos
目標(もくひょう) Propósito. Algo que te propones; Landmark
Hay una palabra que puede confundir: 目的(もくてき) que significa META FINAL.
Explicación de un japo:
I think it boils down to the difference in English between "purpose" and "goal". A goal is something finite you hope to achieve. A purpose is like a motivation for why you do something. Often they will overlap, but not always. Having a finite goal kind of implies that you have a motivation. However, the converse -- having a motivation implies you have a finite goal -- is not necessarily true.
Ex. A: Why did you come to campus today? B1: I came to visit my professor and get a letter of recommendation. → The goal and the motivation are the same: get the letter. B2: I came to visit my professor. → The motivation of why I came to campus is to see my professor. However, there is nothing "achievable" just by visiting him. So the same with the Japanese words. If you have a 目標 you also (likely) have a 目的. However, if you have a 目的, you do not necessary have a 目標. That's how I see them anyway.
Comments de otro japo
目的=目標+意味
I would think of a basic example.
I want to become better at shooting the basketball. => 目的 I will consider myself better at it when I score at least 50% of my shots. => 目標
I think 目的 is a high level image, global image of a goal. 目標 is more achievement like low level goal, usual can be quantified and explicit that will define the concrete steps to the 目的.
Comments de otro japo:
目的is your goal, 目標 is your steps to reach that goal. You have only one 目的 but there are many 目標.
目的is your goal, 目標 is your steps to reach that goal.
For example you want to become a good presenter.
Then you have one 目的:
Become a good presenter.
But you have to set up many 目標 such as : Practice 1hours every day, public speaking
every month, have good skill of powerpoint....
You can still reach you 目的 even give up some 目標.
目標is more concrete than 目的
En resumen 目標 es lo que te propones para lograr tu 目的. 目的 Es tu visión, tu driving force. La ventaja que tenemos es que, al igual que en el español, generalmente se usa “propósito” para referirse a retos de superación personal.

2019.08.28 09:10 VesuviusBlotch 10 Things we all want to see happen in Book 13...

Now the most important issue here is that argument isn't necessary, or advised. I speak for the majority, and I say these ten things are what every true fan desires to see occur in Book 13's lavish pages as of its 2020 release. Let's begin. Oh, and since almost all of these branch off of Bedlam's events, if you haven't read it yet, you're venturing into a spoiler zone.
10) Tanith and Oberon hook up, and at last we're allowed to read an explicit scene but the two lovers are interrupted by the burgeoning truth of all sorcerers' bisexuality. They stop and Oberon goes off to have a fling with Peccant and Tanith with the Sea Hag. I know the Hag's got the hots for Fletcher but not every expectation has to be met, you know. Unfortunately, Magenta finds out about Tanith coming onto her ex, and the two have the mother of all catfights, whilst poor Robbie is kidnapped by Solace and raised to become a master assassin to kill China.
9) Speaking of Fletcher, next up is a vital scene where Fletcher speaks with Militsa of the latter's relationship concerning Valkyrie and gives her some advice on how to handle the volatile Val. Afterwards, they have a Corrival coffee drinking contest, effectively dooming them, and Fletcher Teleports off to have his way with Miss Wicked, as he's been doing for nigh on since Corrival was first put into action.
8) Creed's plan kicks into gear and he unleashes an army of faceless Kith onto an unsuspecting Roarhaven, thanks to the dark magic of the True Teachings; Vespers is revealed to be a spy and a traitor and Adam Brate is the only one who can save the day. Eventually, Serafina and Creed's forces will clash and the fate of the Disciple-dom will be decided. Oh, Temper shows up, but he gets beaten up and captured of course. By the way...
7) Temper becomes beaten up and captured enough to be consumed by his Gist and in doing so, tears apart the whole of the City Guard, but only the non-corrupt ones so bitter irony and suffering can prevail. He'll then be hunted down, and captured (again) before being rescued and forced to join Black Sand, where he meets Frightening Jones and the two have a swordfight.
6) Destrier, in all his mad genius, replicates a series of magical weaponry for the High Sanctuary, and bides his time until he is deep enough to salvage the remnants of the Accelerator deep under the corridors, then triggers the detonation imbued into every sorcery gun and kills half of Roarhaven's security. He then finds Tipstaff in a dank cell and recruits him as an underling and escapes Roarhaven in an inferno of temporal bloodshed and sets out to wage his destructive mind on the world.
5) Omen grows a humongous pair and marches up to the Humdrums, kicking Buach's teeth in, pissing on the statue the mortal democrats have chosen to have erected, gives Aurnia a tongue-lashing for her mistreatment of him, before sauntering back to Corrival and taking October Klein on a hot date, claiming he was really the one who is the Chosen One (and getting mad girls because of it), made easier by his brother's untimely death.
4) Sebastian chats philosophically with Darquesse and takes her to Roarhaven, where she rules the Society with an iron first and kills them off one by one, in decidely dastardly ways. First Kimora by feeding her glutenous sandwiches and so on. Eventually, somehow Bennet saves Sebastian bravely and Sebastian as a result of his friends' sacrifice, wants to die and takes his mask and suit off, condeming himself to oblivion. The baby in his arms is Odetta and Conrad's child, who he uses as a bargaining chip with the Dark Cathedral so they don't kill him for breaking into their vault by offering a fresh babe who they can Activate, thereby making the Child of the Faceless....cos it's made of paper.
3) A portal opens on the outskirts of Roarhaven, and a young Dreylan Scarab pops through, assassinating obstacles like passing citizens before lengthening the portal to a degree, and letting in Jaron Gallow, Murder Rose and Gruesome Krav who patrol and circle the portal, allowing it to breathe further out. Soon, Vengeous and Vile pop out and pave the gateway for Mevolent's grand entrance. Meanwhile, Sebastian and a beleaguered Darquesse observe and before long....rematch. And the Leibniz invasion commences.
2) Crepuscular Vies and the Unnamed forge an alliance, testing all their evil experiments on Flanery. Finally sick of being a puppet, Flanery leaks info to the sorcerer world and the Arbiters show up. Skulduggery duels Crepuscular, Valkyrie and the Unnamed duke it out and Omen is assigned with escorting the bedraggled Flanery out of the now-besieged White House. On the way, Flanery and Omen have an enlightening chat and somehow, they both end up back in villains' hands. Omen tries to attack the Unnamed and fulfil his brother's destiny but gets incinerated. Then, Mr Vies and the King of the Darklands take turns in beatiing up Flanery until he dies and Crepuscular relives himself one last time on the President's corpse.
1)- Valkyrie has gone over the edge and there she sits- getting off to adrenaline and life wearing the Necronaut suit; listening to the relentless, dark soothing tones of the music box and completely Splashed out of her mind, with new boyfriend Glee sitting beside her, writing his name a dozen times in Xena's blood covering the floor, whose doggo head is hanging up on the wall. Oh, and they're in Greymire Asylum. Desmond and Melissa are allowed to visit occasionally, but they plan a rescue mission and the only man who can help spearhead the stratagem to snatch Valkyrie out of bedlam is the man, the myth, the suave, debonair, handsome legend, Fergus Edgley. But Fergus' actions are hampered by Beryl, who is revealed to be Serafina's assassin sister and is determined to do away with her pestering niece once and for all, and more, More, MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh, and Saracen's power is the power of love, because that's the only answer.
Thanks for reading. Feel free to feedback on the possibility of these happening, whether you enjoyed or agreed with any to any degree, or your own ideas (they actually can be serious or jocular).This may come as a monumental surprise (or just a mental one) but a couple of these are ones I legitimately want 100% in some shape or form to come to pass. Others have a grain, too, of events I'd desire to happen. Ah, but what fun it is to indulge in the depths of the imagination. Hope you enjoyed in this fancy, and remember, I'm reserving the right to say I told you so...

2019.07.18 01:09 Double-Parked_TARDIS Forty-five knee-jerk reactions I had while rewatching c1, e4–6 for the 50th time

EPISODE 4
  1. Ooh! Stock footage of squirrels on benches!
  2. If Jon Silverman stormed into my apartment, clapping his hands loudly and yelling that it was time to go, I would not question it. *wistful sigh*
  3. The first five minutes or so of this episode largely comprise footage of the contestants lounging around the apartment and generic talking head shots in lieu of showing things happening. Just saying. This happens again after the acting lesson and once more after Ms. J.'s visit. I'm wondering if this was because the producers couldn't schedule enough to happen on consecutive days.
  4. They show Giselle twirling and then falling on her butt. The shot immediately afterwards features Giselle sitting in the audience and laughing. What is this—the end of John Mulaney's New in Town? I know I'm nitpicking, but...come on.
  5. Elyse mentions that she was in a middle school production of Black Elk Speaks, which is the name of a memoir dictated by a Lakota man. I find this production a little questionable without additional context.
  6. Ms. J. holds his palms up to the camera in order to show how much lotion he accidentally wiped off Ebony's skin. But the camera takes so long to focus that I had to pause at just the right second in order to see anything. And now we have two minutes of almost nothing but shaking butt shots. That's quality film-making, that there.
  7. I'll say this once, and I'll never say it again: Robin did a great job at cold reading.
  8. Giselle starts sputtering and placing her hands all over her face after asking Ebony to wash her hands after applying lotion. I think this was the prototype for c10's "I'm racist? Are you kidding me?" moment. Ebony's freakout at her a few minutes later regarding the apartment cleaning is perfectly justified; "Ginselle" doesn't seem to grasp the concept that another person could be upset by her refusal to pull her own weight. (And Ebony can't remember whether she's eating strawberry shortcake or strawberry cheesecake. It looks like cheesecake, but, like, with an outer edge crusted with tobiko—the fish roe used in some types of sushi.)
  9. Robin and Shannon need to be smacked upside the head. I imagine that the producers allowed them to air their ignorant nonsense in order to positively portray Ebony and Ka a few minutes afterward—with Robin and Shannon missing out on the good time that everyone else was having—but there was no reason for us to have to sit through those prejudicial and intolerant remarks first. "Everybody has to deal with their own sins." Come, now! It's worst of all that Tyra is gunning for plus-size representation so hard that she practically gives Robin carte blanche to act as terrible as Robin wants until the episode just before she's eliminated.
  10. The commercial director criticizes Adrianne's Great Lakes lilt ("I'm from Chi-keah-go." "Well, lose it!") but not Kesse, Robin, or Shannon's twang ("ex-sat-mint" for "excitement"; "ee-az" for "is"; "ahyz" for "eyes" half the time) or Ebony's slightly New Yorker speech ("wawder" for "water"). I will concede, though, that everyone except Adrianne was able to somewhat tone down her respective accent during filming.
  11. "And the taste—like refreshing crystal snowflakes falling on a sparkling, snow-covered mountain." No. Just no.
  12. Director Troy Ward is the first person to say "The camera loves you." And then Janice berates Robin for saying "Yes, ma'am" instead of just "OK." I need a conference call with Nicole c5 immediately to discuss this mishegas. Anyone have her contact info?
  13. Janice says that Shannon has too many teeth and should consider having a few removed. No further comment necessary.
  14. I'm kind of curious about Kesse's name. I studied onomastics for some time, and her name throws me for a loop because I can't place it. Is it inspired by Kizzy (a diminutive of Keziah) but influenced by Cassie (short for Cassandra or Cassidy)? I demand answers.

EPISODE 5
  1. Tyra has an assistant named Ty. I have opinions about this. Also: "Tyra has unbuttoned her pants to prepare for a feast."
  2. Interesting how homophobic Robin is perfectly comfortable answering Mr. Jay's phone with "Who is this calling my man?" Does she not realize that Jay Manuel is gay? Or has she convinced herself that he's celibate? If you're going to be prejudiced, at least be consistent.
  3. I thought for a moment that Adrianne threatened Giselle with "chiclet cyanide." But she just said "Should I put cyanide...?" I need to get my hearing checked, but is chiclet cyanide something I should worry about in life?
  4. Ay ay ay—Elyse doesn't have an eating disorder. Everyone needs to listen to Taylor Swift and calm down immediately.
  5. Shannon says the following twice—to separate people—verbatim: "Never drank, never smoked, and I'm still a virgin." She needs a new tagline. What kind of a person defines herself by what she hasn't done in life?
  6. "Not fitting into a model—like, typical model mode, or whatever. I have nothing to be ashamed of, you know? I—I embrace every curve that is on my body. If more women do, then, you know, we wouldn't have problems like bulimia and anorexia and, you know, things like that making women feel all insecure. And I think that that's the reason why I'm still here." Robin, without even meaning to be, you are a prophet.
  7. Ooh! Pigeons on icy park benches in Central Park! And to think I forgot what season and what city it was.
  8. I can't tell if Shannon is crying tears of happiness about the fact that Adrianne's mom is going to visit or if she's just having some trouble swallowing peanut butter. Because that's how I speak when I'm dealing with that latter problem.
  9. For a "working member of the press," Steve Santagati trips over his words—kind of a bit. Some gems: "What do you think about this—rall [sic] this religion? I've talked to s-so many of the women today...", "no one that perfect—no one's that together," "my decision—my decision." Nothing wrong with tripping over one's words—I do this several times an hour on a daily basis when I'm perfectly relaxed—but...he's a journalist, so the standards are a little higher.
  10. JON SILVERMAN IS IN HIS SWIMSUIT. WANT. NEED. NOW! And why is this his last appearance on the show? We need more of his jawline and his large trapezius for the benefit of all humanity.
  11. Adrianne's mom calls her Chewbacca. I'm here for this.
  12. "This looks like she escaped from a mental institution. This is the worst photograph I've ever seen. You look deranged. Your arms look amputeed [sic], your legs look amputeed [sic], and it looks like you have a penis!" I want this as a plaque on my bedroom wall, but with correct grammar and vocabulary.
  13. BEAU. Let's just call it as it is. Robin, first of all, is too old to be starting to model.
JANICE. And fat! She's huge! She's not going to be a top model.
BEAU. She won't—that's the reality!
JANICE. She—she should work for a car tarpaulin company!
TYRA. I think that you guys are the problem with America. I think that you are the problem of why women are leaning over their toilets at this very moment and vomiting after they've eaten—or taking laxatives after they've eaten. The full-figured market's changing!
Tyra, get off your high horse. Yes, Janice is being rude. Yes, body image issues are a problem. Yes, eating disorders are a problem. Yes, the fashion industry's promotion of typically unachievable and unhealthful ideals is a problem. Yes, you can and should try your best to change that element of the fashion industry. But that doesn't mean that you can pin all your hopes on Robin; she's a terrible person, not a blank vehicle to use for your own designs. If you really wanted a full-figured model who people liked to win this competition, you would've fought harder for Toccara and to send Ann home. *snap*
  1. There is no reason for both Elyse and Giselle to be in the bottom two. Giselle has a diffidence problem, yes, but everyone says that her photo is the best of the week. Also, Janice is absolutely right to remind Kimora that the eating disorder accusations against Elyse are "hearsay." And Tyra criticizes Elyse for her bad attitude, saying that it makes people not like her. And speaking of hypocrisy, Robin is about half-cropped out, and Janice and Beau both want her gone. By the time she's eliminated, Robin gets called second to last four times.
  2. Speaking of correct grammar and vocabulary, the correct way that Tyra's bottom two stock speech should be said is thus: "I only have one photo in my hands, and this photo represents the girl WHO is still in the running towards becoming America's next top model. I will only call one name, and the GIRL WHOSE name I do not call must immediately return to the house, pack HER belongings, and go home." Not once in the entirety of the show does Tyra get the grammar 100% correct. That's twenty-three seasons. ARGH! I know, I know—we all know what Tyra means. But there's that little voice in the back of my head that whispers, "So, does Tyra think that a woman's name will physically manifest and pack the bags of the contestants she's speaking to?" (Yes, I'm aware that's a dangling preposition.)

EPISODE SIX
  1. IMPORTANT: Pink berates Adrianne for having her hair pulled back because go-see clients won't easily associate her with her photos due to the different hairstyle. The judges berate Adrianne later in the episode for not having her hair pulled back. To quote Rich Juzwiak (aka Rich FoFo), "Do as I say, not as I say."
ALSO IMPORTANT: He says to Kesse that people "love accents in this industry." Being aware of Danielle's (c6) existence and having watched episode four (see #10 above), I'm still calling foul.
  1. I just love how the producers reused Shannon's footage about her obsession with that male model. Oh, wait—I don't. Also, Brad's year of birth is 1981, meaning that he's in his late thirties today. I can't picture that. I kind of want to see what he looks like today and what he's done with his life, but I can't tell if I'd be more upset if he wound up a complete failure or if he managed to become hugely successful.
  2. I'm glad that the show used a graphic that showed the cast traveling to France and actually landing in it. I'm still scarred from that Olsen twins movie Passport to Paris, where a similar graphic showed the twins' plane looping around Big Ben, which was sticking out of London (where they didn't even go!), and landing in the middle of the Congo, where the Eiffel Tower was ostensibly located. No. Do not pass "Go," and do not collect two hundred dollars.
  3. "Me keep-ee this-ay." Robin, you need to stop. And when Shannon hears the taxi driver say "très bien," she repeats it as "muy bien." Anyone else notice that?
  4. Now Robin is glaring at Adrianne every time Adrianne says something even mildly (or moderately) inappropriate (or hilarious). Robin's justification? "I don't speak like that." You know, Robin would be merely unpleasant if she were just judgmental of others, but she both regularly denies judging others and tries to berate them for not living up to her ridiculous standards. There's a way to proselytize without explicitly pushing one's views on another person: just make that person feel awful for believing and behaving as he or she has until that person starts to break. Elyse was right to call Robin "proselytizing."
  5. "If you guys are mad at your apartment, that was my idea because a model's apartments are cramped and tight." Tyra, we know the show didn't have enough left in the budget. We're OK with that. (Future me says to just wait until c15 when this whole thing repeats itself, but with an apartment that's still really nice.)
  6. Adrianne says "a porn." Quoting Family Guy, that hits the ear wrong. But it doesn't seem professional for Mr. Jay to ask Shannon if she's ever masturbated. And he did it again in c8 with Samantha during the high school cliches shoot! Also, Shannon doesn't realize that women can do it by themselves. US educational system, people!
  7. Robin says she doesn't know what the setting of the "scene" is on the photo shoot. Um, there's a guy, there's a window with an Eiffel Tower view, and you're in lingerie. I think that scene has set itself, girlfriend.
  8. Watching Brad reminds me of an Iliza Shlesinger quote: "Have you ever dated someone who is…so pretty…but so stupid?" And Robin thinks that Shannon is obligated to go on a date with Brad because Shannon had his picture on her bedroom wall? What sliver of legal precedent is there for any of this?
  9. Her name is Marilyn, and her modeling agency she owns is called The Marilyn Agency. Creative. I was hoping that someone would ask her if she were the head of the agency, to which she would say, "No, but I get that all the time."
  10. Robin, you couldn't all take a cab because you're not all financially privileged and because models often struggle for money. Hell, Adrianne says in the next episode that she herself doesn't have enough money to go shopping. I can imagine Robin's face next to the dictionary definition of "capitalism" based on the way she hired that one guy on the spot to show her around. "That's how we do it in America," she proclaims. I'm surprised they didn't disqualify her after the go-sees after that ridiculousness; she used money to give herself an advantage!
  11. Adrianne just jumped a turnstile. Not judging her, but I heard that Shei (c21) was arrested in real life for doing the same thing in New York. This makes me sad. And tangent over!
  12. And now Adrianne's narrowly avoiding getting molested while walking down the street. After the commercial break, IT'S NEVER MENTIONED AGAIN—NOT EVEN DURING JUDGING. This wouldn't fly on TV nowadays. I have a problem with the judges criticizing Robin for asking a random man for help and not addressing the fact that Adrianne was brave to continue the day's assignment despite what she had to go through during a three-second encounter with a different man, and I find it unlikely that the producers wouldn't bring it up at all to Tyra.
  13. Robin says that nervousness isn't "of God." Um...what? OK, so, I'm fine with people following whatever faith they wish as long as it means that they (a) don't try to make life harder for those who differ from them and (b) follow some semblance of logic. But here...Robin says way back in episode two that God already knows who's going to win the competition, and here she's not nervous because everything, even the future, is already decided. It's "not in [her] hands; it's in God's hands," as she says later in this episode. So...if God already knows who's going to win and being nervous is unnecessary because God has already decided who will win despite Robin's efforts, why does Robin even try? Clearly, according to her rationalizing, she'll either win or lose no matter what she does because it's already decided. Does she realize that it's the judges making decisions directly based on her weekly performance, or does she view everything as a realistic marionette show with God as the puppeteer? I'm going down a bit of a rabbit hole here, but Robin's personal brand of logic is riddled with problems.
  14. It takes Beau a suspiciously long time to look up and say hi after Tyra introduces him. Also, "too obvious" doesn't mean "too pretty"; it means "too ostentatious." To compare, however tangentially: my in-laws are French, and they celebrate Christmas, but they wouldn't dream of putting lights outside their house. French homes don't change much where exterior Yuletide decorations are concerned—unlike many houses in the US and Canada, which tend to turn into light shows. It's a cultural difference, and neither practice is inherently right or wrong, but it's important to at least understand that cultural difference. Tyra didn't sound like she was condemning the French perspective, but it did sound like a mild mistranslation.
  15. I just love (read: hate) how the judges are berating Adrianne and Kesse for not making it to all four go-sees. They still made it to three, for crying out loud—though Kesse had a silly excuse—and they came back on time! And Tyra's talking about having up to twenty-five go-sees per day. That's impressive that she would make it to all of them while relying on public transit, but it's not fair to compare her situation to the challenge in this episode because the contestants only had three hours—hardly a full day.
  16. These Wonderbra shots are all terrible, but it's not the models' fault. And it's clear that this is the episode when Tyra's view of Robin as her plus-size godsend finally started to change for the worse. Took long enough! There's no way she had no idea what was going on in the model apartment, so I'm kind of upset that it was the fact that Robin paid for outside help and not the EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT HER PERSONALITY that affected Tyra's opinion. Also, Brad's profile in Cosmo Girl said that he was 6'1". Either Robin, a 5'10" woman, is wearing heels at least four inches high during the shoot, or Brad was fudging his measurements just a bit.

Then, Lashley cuts a work-shoot on Elias laying out everything of his arrival in ECW as they New big guy and he didn’t everything but the fans booed him, he won the ECW Championship at December to Dismember after a Elimination Chamber Match and he was booed. How he did everything he was asked but he just got booed and Vince McMahon was the only man who wanted me success and tried to give me it but he’s the reason Lashley could never reach the heights he deserved. They even name drop TNA in there! But now, he’s got a trustful Alliance and the world title and Elias just plays his stupid guitar, he will destroy Elias at Night of Champions like he did at Battleground. Storms off.

His aggression to Lince gets to such a point that in his mugging of Lince on the outside he doesn’t care if he’s counted out and continues to beat the poor man up. He grabs Lince by the mask and throughs him into the wall of the entrance way and standing on top of his prone body taunting.
NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS: BOBBY LASHLEY W/CHAD GABLE AND PAUL HEYMAN VS. ELIAS
"Who Wants to Walk, With, Elias?” Elias comes down to a big pop after his recent face turn he’s been one of the most popular acts going at the moment and is here to win the Universal Championship.
Lashley makes a similar entrance to SummerSlam with the smoke and pyro being a normal part of his entrance now, but now when he walks out of the smoke after the pyro, he has the Universal Championship around his waist.
Both men start off hot with some high impact strikes at the start of the match. Elias gets some mat wrestling in there wrenching at Lashley showing his dominance as a competitor. They trade strikes again until Lashley starts bringing in the power onto Elias but surprisingly, Elias holds his own getting some slams and suplex’s onto Lashley. A powerbomb onto the ring apron from Lashley gets him in control of the match.
Lashley whips Elias into the corner and hits him with some punches, Elias knees him in the stomach then goes to the middle rope and hits a tornado DDT! Elias then while Lashley is down sings a song about how he’s going to win. Lashley then gets up and attacks Elias managing to hit a Superplex from the top ropes! That causes a ref bump however and after that happens, Lashley teases the guitar smash that won him at Battleground, But Elias thinks ahead and grabs the guitar for himself, Smash! 1–2–KICK OUT!!!!!
Lashley hits a Spear, Running Powerslam, Dominator! 1–2–3. Bobby Lashley retains putting Elias over huge and getting a great match out of him.
NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS CARD:
Chad Gable def. Mustafa Ali for the Cruiserweight Championship; after finally winning the big one Ali loses it to Gable due to help from the Dangerous Alliance. The lose is soul crushing and a redemption storyline is done.
The Usos def. The Authors of Pain w/Paul Ellering for the Raw Tag Titles; after months of being undefeated on Raw the last chance for Raw to stop these unstoppable killing machines. The one and only, Usos. They wrestle a clinic, Tag Match of the year it would be. The Usos finally defeat The Streak.
The Broken Universe def. The Lucha House Party; this Match is to prove that Roode, Matt and Wyatt as The Broken Universe would be great together and this is to show that off.
Dean Ambrose def. Seth Rollins for the IC Title; after Ambrose defeats Ziggler for the IC Title on Raw it’s announced this match will go down. The two men have to try co-exist but can they with such high stipulations and the title they both so want?
Sasha Banks def. Bayley for the Raw Women’s Title; the one women to stop Sasha from going insane with The Dangerous Alliance, is the person she loves the most, Bayley. Can she stop Sasha? Can she snap her back to reality? Or will she just be another of Sasha beating sticks?
Demon Bálor def. Braun Strowman; after Bálor’s snap a few months back he has been one of the best parts of Raw. But a injury at Money in the Bank caused him to be out of action for 3-1/2 months. He is against the monster among men, the one he could never defeat, Braun Strowman.
Bobby Lashley vs. Elias; as above
BUILD UP TO SURVIVOR SERIES:
Bobby Lashley and Paul Heyman cut a promo about how nobody in this world can beat Lashley he is the most destructive being on earth the true Beast of WWE.
https://youtu.be/Qiqzc2li1yc
"OH LORD! HE’S BACK!” Brock Lesnar comes out completely unannounced to a massive reaction. He was fighting for UFC but is here in WWE! Paul Heyman sells this fantastically like a dead man has just come back to life, he’s here. "Bobby, at Survivor Series, I’ll crush your bitch ass” massive pop. He then storms the ring, German Suplex, F5, HE’S BACK MUDDAFUCKERS!
Over the next weeks they cut promos on Lesnar and Lashley gets dominant victories. Lesnar doesn’t appear on Raw but his latest tweets our shown to the world to know what he’s thinking.
Bobby Lashley wrestles a Match with Sami Zayn before Survivor Series as a throwback to when he first arrived in the company and its one of his best to date. Sami is an amazing wrestle and the two just go together as a combo. Bobby wins using the Dominator and then cuts a vicious promo on Brock Lesnar laying waste into him being a part timer, not caring about the fans, only there for money etc. Bobby is the savior and will crush Lesnar at Survivor Series.
SURVIVOR SERIES: BOBBY LASHLEY W/PAUL HEYMAN AND CHAD GABLE VS. BROCK LESNAR
Both men start off running off the ropes into and then running into each other about 4 times until Lesnar catches Lashley into a German Suplex. They go to the outside. Lashley gets a kendo Stick and gets some narly shots to the back of Lesnar, but Lesnar grabs that Kendo Stick and snaps it in have like a twig. He throughs the broken stick at Lashley and hits him with some rights and lefts. Lesnar gets a chair and absolutely just DESTROYS Lashley hitting him with about 20 chair shots. Then a F5 on the outside.
Lashley targets the leg of Lesnar locking in some submissions as they both have UFC backgrounds we get some glimpse off that style of action. Lashley gets a Kimora Lock on Lesnar and nearly takes him out but, Lesnar powers through and they keep going. Lesnar gets some good elbows on Lashley put a Suplex rolled into a Powerbomb knocks him off his perk.
SUPLEX CITY BITCH!
Lesnar sets up a Table in the ring and one on the outside then battles Lashley on the outside. While they exchange blows on the ring apron Lashley puts Lesnar through the table with Dominator. As they go to the announce desk they each get on top one of the announce desk of the Spanish and English desks. Then they exchange blows. Lesnar manages to just hit a F5 through the announce table.
They go back to the technicality in the ring with some submissions and lock holds. Lashley hits a Running Powerslam, 1–2–Kick Out. Lesnar hits a Spinebuster, 1–2–Kick Out. Bobby hits a Spear, 1–2–KICK OUT. Lesnar hits a fucking Piledriver, 1–2–KICK OUT!!!!!! Neither man can get the other down so, Chad Gable comes in the ring and they both mug Lesnar violently with Weapons and their stomps. Then Spear, Running Powerslam, Dominator. 1–2–3. Bobby Lashley has retained.
LOSING THE UNIVERSAL TITLE
On the New Years Eve Episode Of Raw, Bobby Lashley would lose his Universal Title to Drew McIntyre in a hell of a match. Drew would then go on to continue Singles success as World Champion and Lashley would have a fine run for the next year until eventually retiring.
I hope I did well in booking Lashley’s time in WWE after return. From The Dangerous Alliance to epic rivalry’s I feel Lashley would be one of the best after this run.
Thank you for reading.

2019.02.10 13:40 IforaNye Season 4 Tic Tac Lunch with Veruschka!

Ira D'Essence sat to chat with Vera over a bountiful platter

IRA: Hey Miss Veru, thanks for stopping by! Please help yourself, we've got plenty of options...orange Tic Tacs, carnelian Tic Tacs, reddish yellow Tic Tacs...what would you like?
VERUSCHKA: Oh hi! I was just eating fruit snacks, so I'm good. Thank you for the offer though.
IRA: Of course! So, how're you feeling?
VERUSCHKA: After the last two weeks I feel like the cockroach y'all just can't kill no matter what. When the end of times come I guess I'll be partying it up with Cher and roaches! No but seriously, I'm feeling fine. Happy even. It hasn't been an easy ride but I'm glad I decided to take a shot at this season.
IRA: Haha well, cockroach strategy or not you've still made it to this point and that's what matters! I really mean it when I say I'm happy you auditioned and I'm looking forward to your ball looks, too. But before we get to the ball, let's rewind for a bit and talk about the past. How do you feel about your run this season?
VERUSCHKA: Oh boy.
The first few weeks were rough as fuck man, there's really no better way to put it. The competition started at kind of an awkward time for me. I had a lot of stuff going on in real life and MPAR was feeling like a huge chore on top of all that. And, well, it really shows if you look at the stuff that I put out.
But around Week 5 things started getting easier and drawing began to feel fun once again! After that week I feel like I've been on a steady uprise, at least art-wise.
IRA: Aw, that's great to hear! I'm glad you pulled through and didn't quit on us, and no matter how you do in the competition the important thing is that you love what you're doing. Do you have a favorite moment from your MPAR journey?
VERUSCHKA: I definitely considered quitting, but I feel like pretty much everyone has had those thoughts once or twice during their run as well! This is a pretty lame answer, but my favorite moment is without a doubt the time between getting the message saying "you're in" and the official cast reveal. Seeing how excited people were getting about the season and the scavenger hunt was just awesome and it made me really happy!
IRA: Aww! I don't blame you for naming that as your favorite moment, the start of the season is always the most exciting because everyone's filled with hope and opportunity and you have no idea how things are gonna turn out. It's probably one of my highlights too.
As for quitting, I think you're right -- I know I myself had those thoughts and in general the competition puts everyone in a weird place mentally. I feel like you've been able to keep calm and carry on despite the incredible amounts of stress and pressure you put yourself through for almost 9 weeks now...as advice for future and current competitors, how the heck do you stay level-headed?
VERUSCHKA: My advice is to not take this competition so damn seriously, we're all just drawing fake drag queens/kings/etc here! View this as more of a "communal learning experience". Just do you and have fun exploring and experimenting with what you can do with art and design. At the end of the day personal growth and improvement is just as valuable as a pretty icon next to your flair saying that you won something... and I'm not just saying this because I haven't won anything, I really do mean it.
IRA: I love your attitude! And I hope you've been able to grow as much as you've wanted this season. Now, speaking of winning...do you think you can win the ball? I'm so curious to see what looks you'll turn out.
VERUSCHKA: Yeah I do feel like I've made some progress, like figuring out that pixel perfect painterly rendering isn't for me. I'll leave that to Aura haha
And anything is possible! I have the least to lose and the most to gain, so I'll try going balls to the wall with this challenge. The overall direction I'm going right now is sorta reminiscent of the look I did for Ugly Christmas Sweater lipsync a few weeks back.
IRA: Yes!! That's so exciting to hear, that lipsync is probably my favorite look of yours to date and that's exactly the kind of stuff I think we'd all love to see more of. I've got high hopes. Is there anything else about your run or the ball you'd like to share? Any comments, questions, or concerns?
VERUSCHKA: I just want to thank you and the other judges one more time for still having me in the race! I'm super excited to show off what I got for the last time before the finale.
IRA: I'm glad! You earned your spot in the Top 5 fair and square, so really no need to thank us. Now, my final question -- why do you deserve to be in the Top 3?
VERUSCHKA: Because of my stellar track record, obviously... Just kidding Kimora!
After what this community has done for me, I feel like I have so much more love and passion to give back to it. MPAR has truly been a life changer and I want to be able to spread the love for art and drag even further and inspire the next generation of competitors.
IRA: Amazing! I love anyone who is passionate about this little community. I think regardless of track record you've certainly made your mark, you've got a lot of people rooting for you and I have high hopes for you myself. I truly believe the ball is anyone's to take this season, and given your upward trajectory this is the perfect opportunity to show us your peak. So good luck with your ball looks, you got this girl!

2019.01.30 02:44 TheRegalOneGen [S] Video Game Survivor Africa

SPOILERS
This season can be summed up in a quote from a very intelligent person.
"Wait, what?" - Kimora Blac
This season was absolutely chaotic and some of these moves blindsided me. Episode 5's tribal was particularly insane. You can best believe even Lillie will return just because of that tribal.
Outside of episode 5 none of the episodes on their own were super wow that I feel the need to talk about them in long depth or anything. But, that's mostly because the strategy here is clearly 400D chess cuz I'm lost. Amazing but chaotic cast. I wonder if we decided to let Kass do hiring this season.
Also, I need to say. Wow did Boran decimate those immunity challengges. Like they only lost one. They were absolutely insane.
So I'm going to do what I did with Borneo and talk about the people I considered to be the stars of the show. And really anyone that made top 6 will be discussed.
So we're going to start with the interesting pre-jruy boots. 2/3 of them are mostly just me musing. Those 3 being Lillie, Vampa and Elegost. Now, both our winner and our runner-up started with a 3 person alliance. Now, you'd think Vampa and Elegost would go near to the end but, Vampa totally got murdered due to the tribe swap. Those extra three votes took her out. I think she's prime second chance material because she actually looked like she was doing well. And, also, Elegost. Honestly I just wanted to mention his irony because this was fully his fault. Not only did his alliance go after the eternally popular Cynder, slayer of alliances. But they also did it when one of them clearly was unpopular. That leaves Lillie of the three. I think, despite her having had no alliance, Lillie had what it took to get to the end. But she mistakingly thought she'd take somebody else out somehow if she just didn't vote Cynder. And, because of Lillie's blunder we had the most memorable tribal to date with a four way tie with only four people on the tribe. Insane. Batty. The real mistake was Lillie was too stubborn to just flip and take out Cynder. She had what it took but she took it away from herself. It was definitely fun though, which may be why she didn't just vote Cynder on the revote.
Now, on to the real important people. Starting with sixth place, Ashley Brown. She definitely deserved her spot in the f6 and let me explain why. This will also apply to her ally Mai. These 3 came into a tribe that had never gone to tribal. Meaning there were five people who'd never had to get their hands dirty. Now, the three could have just lied down and died. But instead, they fed into Aeleus and Elegost's worries about the other half trying to take them out. So, they worked together. I assumme there'd been some tension between the Wii Fit trainer and Vampa. Or they considered Wii Fit a pphysical threat. (Which clearly was true considering her 3 challenge wins) so they were going to cut her. And also got Alex to vote with them. But, instead Aeleus and Ashley merged their two duos, and got WFT in too, and they voted out a strategic and mental threat. She was definitely one of the people leading that charge. And it also ended up biting Joker in the ass too, two tribals later. Where Ashley and Mai once again were voting out a member of Boran. Which they also did the week before when they stabbed Aeleus' ally in the back. Ashley and Mai both had a clear Sandra mindset of "anybody but me" Unfortunately, after taking out three of the boran tribe, people caught on a took out Mai, then Chris and then Ashley.
Next, is Solgaleo. Honestly, he and WFT have the least substance to them of the f6. Most of their claim to fame is being comp beasts. They're also likely the two that were mostly behind Boran's immortality pre-merge. So, Solgaleo's first tribal was the one where everything went insane. He played it probably the most logically and the least sneakily which I need to point out isn't a bad thing. However, he and Tressa better be glad rocks weren't a thing in Africa. Solgaleo definitely didn't seem to be playing the strategy aspect. Wherever Aeleus said to vote he did. Well, until he isolated himself and the first time he could be voted for everyone voted for him. WFT did very much the same thing except a fair bit better. She did the same things as Aeleus when she was safe. But she did it much quieter and with less blood on her manneqhands. I think realistically, everyone wanted to bring Aeleus with them as he had a lot of blood, had made a lot of strategic blunders and wasn't on the level of Cynder or Tressa, or realistically, even WFT. Because while they did the same thing, WFT did it a lot quieter, generally having the excuse of her not having been safe that week.
Next, is Mr. Runner-Up himself. Aeleus played a good game. Don't get me wrong. But he definitely stumbled and he didn't clean the blood off his hands well enough. He failed to keep one of his allies alive in the game and failed to keep Solgaleo loyal. Those two missteps, besides him not playing his hand quite right definitely costed him it. He wasn't sneaky enough. Oh. And he also was against the second best player in the game. Speaking of Tressa.
Tressa, like all the other Borans, really didn't get to play until week 5 (with most borans actually having to wait till week 6). But she started playing immediately. She took a large gamble trying to vote out Lillie and she was lucky it payed off because it could have been her instead. And that move also was the move that pretty much guaranteed Cynder a win if she made it to FTC. But, obviously Cynder didn't make it due to Aeleus and WFT so she got lucky there. Hopefully her plan had been to take WFT to FTC and get rid of Cynder at F3 but it was risky. Outside of the Cynder and Joker votes she was on the right side of the vote every single week. And in the week 5 tribal shes the only one that succeeded at her move and got out her target. She managed to climb over the sinking ship that was Aeleus and co. And managed to swerve her way to the end. A very deserving winner and played exceptionally.
But, obviously the real winner of the season was Cynder. While she went fourth she played to godlike degrees. The fun part of this is, we actually get to talk about weeks 1-4 as she actually played those weeks! Now, Cynder only had a 50/50 correct ratio with her votes pre-swap. So she actually wasn't all that impressive. She tried to get Mai out twice, despite the fact that didn't seem to be the way the vote landed... At all. But she still tried and I mean eventually she succeeded. Now, week 5 was her shining and crowning moment. She was the only one of the samburu actually on the samburu tribe. Making the vote really easy and clear about who needed to leave. But instead, her good social game got both Lillie and Tressa to vote elsewhere, also causing the most interesting tribal to date. It was honestly impeccable as had it been any of the other Samburu tribe members they would left unanimously on that tribe. Which was the true magic of it. It was very much because of Cynder's social bonds that she stayed. Now, outside of her one pity vote for Ashley, she actually was on the right side of every single vote after episode 6. She was more than willing to get rid of the crumbs and dust of Samburu that remainded, with the only one she had difficulty with leaving was Ashley. She played impeccably despite her tribe, overall, had ended up a complete dumpster fire. She went from the obvious vote out to f4 and had she made that FTC, even against Tressa she would have unanimously won. And that I am sure of.

Mayhem Miller ""Oh god yes. I didn't want to go on 4, because I want actual competition. [laughs] I'm just kidding! I would be honored to be on season five. If not season six is cool too, but I'm on a winning streak right now" 12/20/2018
Dusty Ray Bottoms When asked if she would shave her head in a lip sync, she said "I will do it for sure. Maybe on All-Stars 4!" 4/13/2018
Yuhua Hamasaki "Of course girl! It is an opportunity! If All Star 5 want me I will be there. If not, 6, 7, 8. If there is money, I am there. If there is a dollar, I am there." 5/16/2018
Kalorie Karbdashian Williams "I would love to hopefully maybe get on All Stars 4, because I want that little redemption arc for Kalorie [laughs]. Because let's be real, my time on the show was short." 3/30/2018
Vanessa Vanjie Mateo "If they asked me, of course. Bitch, if they asked me to come clean the bathrooms, I would do it. If they say 'Miss Vanjie, we can't bring you on, but can you please be the janitor for All Stars?' I'd say, yes of course. Give me the gloves, Mary. Let me start cleaning." 5/17/2018

Christina comes down into the workroom. Angie doesn't even pretend to clap.
Hello ladies! So I hear yáll have been working on your Snatch Game celebrity impersonations, but that dumb whore Bianca locked me out of the Snatch Game studio. So this week you will be using your impersonations to film your own addition to the Vogue series 73 questions!
In case you don´t know, this youtube series revolves around a vogue filmmaker following a celeb around their house or work and asking 73 very important questions. And today we will be filming our own installments. You will have to write and film your own extra special episode with your celebrity impersonation and make it as funny as possible. As for your questions, you will get to create 43 of them to fit your narrative and add in whatever gags you want, but you must answer the following three questions
  1. What is the secret to fame
  2. Pineapple on Pizza
  3. What are your opinions on abortion?
  4. Can I come in?
  5. Tell me a bit about yourself
  6. Do you have any hidden talents
  7. What is your favorite movie
  8. Who is your biggest inspiration
  9. What are your biggest weaknesses
  10. What are you most scared of
  11. Why did the chicken cross the road
  12. Whatś your go to Karaoke song
  13. Trump or Clinton?
  14. Do you consider yourself to be a spiritual person?
  15. What is your biggest regret
  16. Do you have any dating tips
  17. Have you read any good books lately
  18. What would be your advice to a fan suffering from Pizza
  19. How old are you
  20. Did you have a happy childhood
  21. Whatś your biggest secret
  22. Are you truly happy
  23. Are you sure
  24. What do you consider to be your greatest achievement
  25. If you had to describe yourself using only the title of a movie, what movie would it be
  26. How´s your head?
  27. What's your life motto
  28. What is your biggest guilty pleasure
  29. Do you believe euthanasia is morally justified?
  30. Do you like potatoes?
And on the runway, just to make sure you have a solid grasp on your impersonation, you will showcase a look showing how your celebrity died. So for example, if I did Lena Dunham, I would do a failed coat hanger abortion that I performed out of solidarity.
Good luck, and don´t fuck it up!

2017.11.13 02:45 getmeoutofthelab Promoted to Blue Belt Part 1

I recently got my blue belt. When I first started BJJ I was looking for advice or someone to relate to, and although there is no shortage of advice, it wasn’t really chronological or in depth the way I wanted it. I decided to document my “emotional journey” in a small forum. A number of people have said they related to what I wrote, so I cleaned up all my posts and figured I’d post it here.
I already posted the video of why I started BJJ in another thread, so I’ll post the link to that here: https://www.reddit.com/bjj/comments/57dv0m/me_getting_shot_and_stabbed_because_i_didnt_know/
DISCLAIMER: I’m not a wordiologist, and I wrote this in a stream of consciousness style to keep it as honest as possible. There are also a few references to the board that I posted on.
Now onto the story of an unexceptional nerdy former white belt.
4/22/16 Membership: After e-mailing with a guy at the gym we arranged a date for me to come in and sign up. I walked into a hot sweaty cramped place with a tiny welcoming area and a sea of purple belts, and white belts milling around before their class. I flagged over the guy who I had been talking to via e-mail. I recognized him because the gym has pictures of all their instructors. He stuck his hand out to greet me, and I can honestly say he couldn't have been more welcoming. You'd kind of expect all these legit badasses to be kind of exclusive, and try to size you up and all. It wasn't like that at all. He asked me what I wanted to do, and I just said I wanted to learn BJJ, and I'm tired of getting my ass kicked in combative classes when the fight hits the ground. He was very welcoming, and told me their schedule and how their payment system works. I asked about Gi and he said if I purchased their Gi when I signed up for the membership I'd get $50 off. He went over what classes they have and who can take what. He told me that even though I'm just starting out I can take the advanced BJJ classes because they're just more sport in nature when compared to the traditional Gracie Self defense classes. He told me anyone is welcome to any classes they have and they'll make sure to put me, a new guy, with a more advanced person at first so I don't get hurt. He even said I can come into the open gym Sundays and roll all day, and not to worry about it because they have all levels of people coming. I honestly don't want to slow anyone down, so I'll probably hold off on the all day rolling for a few weeks/months until I'm more confident I wont accidentally hurt myself or anyone else, but it's great to know the option is there.
After I got fitted for my Gi he told me I was more than welcome to hop into the class and start right then and there. Unfortunately I had to run home to make dinner for my family so I declined, but that simple act of inclusion really made me feel at home. These guys are there to learn themselves, and to teach. I really expected all the bullshit I got when I was a skinny kid going into a gym and the jacked up sales guys would give me shit for not being on their level. It was the complete opposite. Right before I left he talked about the belt system. I kind of zoned out (which wasn't polite) because I can't imagine myself becoming a black belt or anything so it didn't make much sense to me to care about promotions. After the promotion talk the guy told me how to sign into their system for attendance so that I can keep track of how much work I'm doing and how much progress I'm making. They use something called Mindbody. I still haven't figured that thing out, but if there's a problem I'll just call them. It was funny. Right before I left the guy said all relationships flourish or fail based on communication so stay in touch and make sure to communicate if there's a problem. Again, that caught me off guard. He asked if he'd see me the next class, and I told him I had something planned and I'd try to move it, but if not I'd see him next week. We shook hands and I went to my car.
I sat in the driver's seat and I stared at my Gi that I threw on my passenger seat. It was staring back at me, and completely entranced me. I'm really excited to hopefully meet a new group of awesome dudes, but mostly I'm just happy to be learning something again. I'm the kind of person that loves learning new things, and I'm about to unlock this magical world of BJJ. I'm tired of watching UFC or BJJ or ECQC videos and not have any freaking clue what's going on. After I collected my thoughts I rolled down the windows turned up Octane and drove home daydreaming about being in an EWO/ECQC evolution where Craig doesn't have to yell at me to stop fucking up the second the fight hits the ground. (ECQC/EWO are classes taught by Craig Douglas of Shivworks. You can youtube the evolutions to see what I was talking about if you’d like)
4/29/16 Week one and BJJ withdrawal: So Tuesday was my first official training class. I woke up grabbed my Gi and threw it in a backpack so that I could change at my job and head to the gym. I was a nervous wreck. I don't know why, but I was really freaking out and anxious. All day all I could think about was what would it be like, would they be accepting, who would I pair up with if we did partner work, what if they say I'm not good enough for their gym and have to find another one, what if I do something stupid and get kicked out? I've taken a number of Craig's classes, and have gotten my ass kicked, so I wasn't nervous about that. I completely expected to receive righteous ass kickings and was totally ok with it. I was nervous about all the things that didn't really matter. No one prepared me for that. It was odd. The things I'm told people worry about, like not being good enough or thinking their going to be amazing and then feeling the reality of life crush them, weren't even on my mind a little. Once I got to the gym I went inside and waited for the kids class to finish.
Tuesdays and Thursdays have three classes I can attend after work. First up is the Gracie self defense class or the fundamentals class as they call it. Next is advanced BJJ which is more sport in nature and a fast paced class. After that there's rolling for a half hour.
The fundamentals class began and I wandered out on the mat with everyone else. We were given a brief into to some techniques and told to pair up and work on them. The instructor said that anyone that is comfortable with this specific lesson should pair up with someone who isn't. Everyone knew each other and paired up with someone they were familiar with, and I was left alone. As I was looking for someone the instructor came over and put me in a group of blue belts and told them I was new and to show me what to do. First mental crisis averted I guess... The other dudes were cool and we worked on the basic stuff. It was actually really easy. It didn't phase me at all and we kept working on what the instructor told us to do for the rest of the hour.
Up next, advanced BJJ. I checked again with the assistant instructor that it was cool for me to stay for that class and he said, "Of course, but remember white belts are like kids, they should be seen and not heard. It's an advanced class." This actually didn't bother me at all. I was happy they let me in the class at all. It was WAY over my head. I thought I'd have to take a ton of the fundamental classes before I could take the advanced class, so I was fine with that. The instructor showed the move we would be doing. He went through a ton of different things and a conservative to generous estimate would be that I knew about 0%-0% of what he was talking about. I just watched what they did and tried to commit it to memory. The head instructor was good though. He realized what must have been going through my head. When we broke into pairs he swung by and said just do your best. I looked for someone to pair with and there was another brand new person right next to me. I said I had no clue what I was doing and he said the same. The assistant instructor noticed the two idiots bumbling around and said figure it out and do your best. At least there was no pressure to do things with perfect form... Me and the other new guy, got to it and tried our best. We weren't terrible, but I'm sure if any of the big dogs here saw what was happening they'd cringe. I managed to learn a lot. The head instructor would swing by every now and then and give us pointers, but never stay too long. I completely understood why. The new guys shouldn't be slowing down the advanced class, so I wasn't bothered at all.
At the end of the class we gathered up and the instructors gave a recap of some tournaments that had happened the previous weekend. They thanked everyone for showing up with banners and stuff to support the people that were fighting, and thanked the competitors too. They seemed like a supportive group. It was actually really cool. It was also a little nerve wracking. Would I ever be a part of that group? Would that group ever accept me? What the hell do I do now? After the advanced class was over everyone took a break to get their mouth guards and stuff for rolling. I decided to head home because I had no clue what I was doing and forgot my mouth guard. On the way out I realized I was the only one that left at that time, and put that in the back of my head for some reason. I went home excited and happy and dejected, and ready to not suck one day! Bring it Thursday class!
Thursday came around and things kind of got off track for me. My wife was super stressed that week, and she couldn't sleep. That of course means I can't sleep. She also made it clear that she was kind of bummed I went to the gym the night before we were supposed to meet a real estate person to get a quote on a house... I stand by my decision and think I did the right thing. Anywho... Thursday morning I grabbed my gi and threw it in my truck so I could once again change at my job and head to the gym after work. I dragged ass at my job. I was super tired, but I kept telling myself I'd wake up for class. About three quarters through the day I made the decision to skip the gym that night. My wife was a wreck and the gym would be there next week. It was rough. I really wanted to go. I felt like I was going through withdrawal. I had only taken one class and already I'm mad that I'm missing a day of training. I think I might be hooked.
I didn't want my night to be a total loss though. My knowledge is seriously lacking. those people might as well have been speaking a different language. What the hell are the three hops? Who is the kimora? Omiplata!?!?!?!? I don't like being clueless. There are so many videos out there, but who knows what's decent and what's garbage. Any idiot can make a youtube channel. I figured I'd research some books that might help me along while I'm not in class. BJJ University came highly recommended by many people. so I grabbed my wife after work and went to the book store. I also figured there's no reason to stop at books. I took some private lessons with Jerry Wetzel in L.A. after Craig Recommend him to me, and my ability to not get my ass kicked on the ground improved greatly. I decided I would also contact the school and see if anyone gave private lessons. I figure taking private lessons will accomplish a lot. 1. I'll get a lot of guidance that can accelerate my learning curve. 2. I'll be able to work on problems I have in my combative lifestyle. 3. The instructors will see I'm serious about this. 4. The more mat time I get, the better I'll get, etc.
So that's where I am now. If anyone is just starting out and is curious how their first day will go, maybe it'll be like mine, but hopefully you won't be as weird and neurotic, and your day will be even better.
5/24/16 One month in, extra curricular activity: I’ve been doing BJJ for one month now. I’m still not in the clique, but people are at least saying hi to me. Me and a few other new white belts seem to be coming to the same classes. We pair up every now and then but for the most part, whenever we split up to find partners I’m still getting flashbacks to being the last kid picked in gym class while I try to find a buddy. The blue belts I’ve worked with have been very gracious and tolerant, so I can’t complain. The white belts I’ve worked with that have no clue what’s going on have been awesome at working together to try and figure out what the heck we’re supposed to be doing. I’m sure this will work itself out in time.
Now to my current situation… My initial plan was to go two to three times a week going to both fundamental and advanced classes. After attending one of the advanced classes, I quickly realized that it might not be a good idea to go to the advanced classes yet. They welcomed me to the class, but the general way the class worked was that they expanded on concepts we learned in the fundamental classes, which I hadn’t taken. I was doing tons of things wrong, and I felt like I would just develop training scars if I went to the advanced classes. At the same time I was being dominated by the more experienced guys in the fundamental classes, BUT as soon as one of the instructors came over while I was being dominated, he would tell me what to do to fix my problems, and it worked. It became painfully obvious that the solutions to all my problems was to learn and focus on the fundamentals. I decided I would stop going to the advanced classes until I had taken all the fundamental classes at least once. Then I’d try one advanced class and re-evaluate.
What do I do in the meantime???? Unfortunately there are only two fundamental classes during the week, with one repeated on Saturday. I was already going to both, but I wanted more. That’s the most frustrating thing ever! I want more, I know how to get more, but I have to wait for classes. I’m not a movie star that can rent out a gym with some elite instructor for 8 hour private lessons. I have to wait for each class. Since I’m the most impatient person the world has ever seen, I devised a plan to keep my anxiety at bay.
Since I’m not going to the advanced classes anymore, I have some room in my schedule. I also have BJJ university, and thanks to some private messages, I have a list of other books to read. My plan so far has been to read a little every Tuesday and Thursday instead of going to the advanced classes. It’s honestly helped a ton. My knowledge from reading is not equivalent to actual experience, but the beauty of my situation is that I’m essentially reading the textbook before class… Well technically after class, but don’t throw salt in my game! A lot of the stuff I read in my books I see and practice in the following classes. I don’t have an outline of which moves and techniques are taught each class so I can’t specifically prepare for each class, but I get lucky every now and then. When we go over a move I learned in the book, I’m able to perform at a much higher level, which motivates me to read more because I see the extra work paying off! I recently had to attend a NASCAR race, and while sitting in my seat, I busted out my book and read a little. Any spare time I have, I’m reading my books.
Thanks to a SUPER AWESOME member of the board, I was also able to borrow the Gracie Combative DVDs. Since I don’t want to hog the DVDs and copying them bothers me on a moral level, I’ve decided to follow the “touch it every day” plan. Every day I have to watch at least one section from the DVDs. Usually it’ll turn into more than one slice, but sometimes I just fall asleep after a long day at work, and I barely see anything, but I do see something.
For now this is where I am. Trying to satiate my hunger for knowledge any way possible, while not so patiently waiting for the next class. It’s extremely frustrating, but I’m sure all of the experts have gone through it when they were the new to the sport.
I can see why so many white belts quit. It’s hard. It’s hard getting the motivation to come back to the gym after you’ve had a crazy day at work. It’s hard telling your wife you’ll be home late because you’ll be at the gym again. It’s hard getting tapped all the time. It’s hard knowing that there’s a way to not get tapped, but you just flat out don’t know it. It’s hard having such a weak grasp on things that you can’t even improvise something that works. It’s hard seeing all these fancy colored belts and thinking about how many years it took for them to learn what they know. It’s hard seeing those guys get dominated by a higher belt that has been training even longer. I can see why so many white belts quit… but fortunately for me I’ve dealt with much worse for much longer, so don’t get your panties in a twist thinking this nerd is going anywhere but up.
6/24/16 Craig was right… "It" finally happened: A video of me getting dominated got about 95k views on the shiv works Facebook page. I was on the ground, not really panicking, but just totally confused and frustrated. I kept trying to solve a problem that I knew there was an answer to, and nothing I did worked. I would try something, it wouldn’t work, I would try to think of something else, Craig would yell at me “Don’t give up, do something!” I would try something else, it wouldn’t work, and the cycle would repeat itself for what felt like an eternity. That frustrated me because I wasn’t giving up! It’s just that everything I could think of wasn’t working. Afterwards Craig said that 3-6 months in a BJJ gym and I would know what to do. I didn’t really understand what he was talking about at the time but, spoiler alert, he was right.
I’ve been training for a little over 2 months now. I’m averaging two nights a week, and a private lesson every other week. I’m not going crazy. I’ve been sick and missed classes for a week. I’ve been traveling etc. The point is I haven’t been going super crazy in the gym all the time, and I’m your average guy. A few classes ago “it” clicked. I have no clue what “it” is, or what "it" means, or how to describe "it" like I’m sure other people can, but “it” happened.
We were practicing escaping from head locks while in side control. The instructor for that class, a brown belt named Jeff, said “You shouldn’t be panicking. We can get out of this stuff. You shouldn’t be in this situation in the first place, but if you are DON’T PANIC. If someone puts you in a headlock, you should be like, oh man this guy is in trouble!!” I kept that in the back of my head while I was shrimping out of the bottom, and coming over top of the guy, who was much bigger than myself. And suddenly I heard Craig’s voice telling me not to give up, and I felt this feeling of relief. I knew what to do now. My problem was not that I was giving up, it was that I had no clue what to do when on the ground and everything I did wasn’t working, or looked like I wasn’t trying to do anything. After a few months in the gym, I know how to get out from the bottom, I’m comfortable on my back, I’m not spazzing out wasting a ton of energy doing things that don’t work, I’m not getting frustrated, I understand the mindset I needed. “It” happened. Later on when we were rolling, all I did was let people get on top of me, and I practiced getting out from the bottom. It worked! I got out from side control, from being mounted, etc. I could do it… Against other white belts. Obviously I’m no match for the higher belts, but for a random street fight, I can move around and get my blade or my gun out, or just shrimp out of something, I hope. I have a long way to go in BJJ. I can see that, but for my self defense purposes. I’m way ahead of where I thought I’d be. I honestly thought I would have to be a purple belt before I would be remotely capable of doing ANYTHING in a fight. I thought it would take years before I understood the magic that the black, brown, and purple belts were doing. Three months. It took three months.
As for everything else. I’m still not mentally ready for the advanced classes, but I’m getting there. I started rolling, which was cool, but frustrating because I still have so much to learn. The other crew of white belts and I recognize each other. We still keep forgetting each other's’ names, but we remember faces. I’m familiar with most of the warm up drills, so I’m not panicking while I try to find a partner at the beginning of classes. The instructors are remembering my face, and seeing things I’m consistently doing wrong and correcting them. It’s really nice. There are social events that my gym puts together, but I usually spend all my free time doing something with my wife, and I’m kind of socially awkward, so I haven’t attended anything yet. I probably will eventually. The gym has become a part of my lifestyle now. Everybody at my job knows on Tuesday and Thursday I leave at 425pm to get to the gym on time.
As I sit in a hotel room waiting for VCAST (A vehicle combative course) to start tonight, I’m excited that I might get to put my knowledge to good use. I’m excited, not scared, to see if I’m really getting better. I’m no longer nervous that I won’t have any clue what to do. I’m no longer scared that if something were to happen and I were to hit the ground I’d be totally screwed. I have a starting point I’ll work from there. I know that as long as I keep going to the gym, and keep taking these types of classes, I should be ok.
3 months seems to be the magical number for me. Around 3 months and things started coming together. For you new guys out there, just hold out. It’ll get better. Maybe it’ll take 6 months, maybe it’ll take you 4 months, but things will make sense. “it” will happen to you too. Just make sure you keep going after “it” happens. There’s always more to learn.
P.S. I shrimp as much as possible now. I sit in an empty hotel room shrimping on the floor if I travel. Shrimping is key.
8/9/16 Stripeless and proud: I've been training for a few months now and things have been progressing. I haven't been in the gym as much as I'd like primarily because I'm traveling to take shooting classes (VCQB, VCAST, Super Dave). Recently there have been a lot of white belts getting their first stripe. A lot of those guys came in about the same time I did, and oddly enough the other guys getting promoted didn't bother me. Normally I'd be upset about being left behind because I can be kind of competitive, but I actually don't care. I'm of course happy for my gym mates, but I'm also happy for myself. I’ve been going to the gym fairly consistently, and every time I hit the gym I learn another move, or I get to practice a move a little more to get myself a little smoother. That’s all I really want. I’m moving at my own pace and making what I consider to be great progress. BJJ has mellowed me out. It's actually really nice. I can see the personal emotional progress I’ve made.
As far as my gym progression goes, I actually noticed I'm getting better there too. Last Friday I rolled with a more experienced white belt that normally controls me completely. Once I got him in side control, I pinned him down, and he couldn't do anything. I almost submitted him three times. That's HUGE for me. A month or two ago I couldn't even come close to submitting anyone even once, and there was no way I'd be able to maintain side control for more than a second or two. Then I got paired up with a new guy with some wrestling experience. I was nervous because every time I've sparred with anyone with any experience they beat me on the ground. I submitted him almost at will. I noticed all the rookie moves that I used to do, and was able to counter him. When he did get me in a bad position I just slowly moved out of it, and put myself in a dominant position. Exactly how the guys with a few months of experience had done to me a few months ago. It was surreal. At that point I realized I was actually getting better, and it wasn’t just in my head. The entire car ride home I reflected at how much better of a person and how much better of a BJJ guy I am becoming. The crazy thing is that I’m just starting out. I see the purple belts doing all sorts of magic I don't understand, and I can’t imagine myself doing what they’re doing, but I just did what I thought I couldn’t do a few months ago. I told myself, “Just keep showing up and things will make sense” and I guess that was right.
I re-read my previous posts shortly before writing this and it's crazy to see how everything worked out. It's even crazier to see that a lot of other people had the same progression I did. I still have a lot of questions, but as my instructor says, "All questions will be answered with more mat time."
10/19/26 The past comes back to not haunt me: So I’ve been consistently training for about 6 months now. I’ve been at the gym at least 2-3 times a week and I take one private lesson every other week. I’ve had to take small breaks due to travel and a cold or two, but I’ve been consistent. A few weeks ago something crazy happened that made me look over my progress. There’s a video of me on the Shivworks Facebook page. It was me getting completely dominated in ECQC. I got shot with my own gun, and stabbed with my own knife. It has about 95k views and it keeps popping up in my life. A few weeks ago, a local black belt shared the video. One of my instructors saw it, and commented that the guy on the bottom (me) trains at his gym. He also said, “I know he’s ready to redo that drill.” That was a huge boost in my confidence.
Funny enough… That local black belt just so happened to stop by our gym a few days ago to teach a class since our instructor was out of town. I mentioned to him that I was the one in the video, and he was very happy I was training now. He was a former police officer and he said he’d seen my scenario play out in real life before, and he’s happy I had that experience in a safe training environment. After class I shared the video in my gym's private Facebook group. Some people had overheard, and I think the video is a great training tool that shows how powerful BJJ is. One of the other instructors commented and said, “I’d say you’re significantly better now.” Again, I was very happy, but it made me kind of review my progress from the beginning.
The last post I made, I knew I was getting better. I knew I wasn’t the same person, but I didn’t realize just how dramatic the change was because I was comparing myself to semi-trained and trained guys, not my original self. I also hadn’t had anyone who saw the original video see me roll now, so I didn’t have an outside perspective. Compared to my old self, I am so much better. I looked at the video of me before BJJ, and I saw a million ways for me to get out of a situation I couldn’t figure out how to get out of at the time. My body motion is completely different on the ground. Things that were not possible to me back then are instinctive now. It’s really fascinating. Not to toot my own horn, but the people that saw the video all said I’m way better now, so I know I’m not imagining things. So that’s super cool.
As far as my current state in my BJJ journey…. I know the majority of the fundamental moves taught at my gym. I’m starting to find my game. I know the moves that I’m good at, and I’m working on finding ways to get people into positions, or get myself into a position where I can use my preferred moves. I’m starting to recognize when I should do certain things. My action is slow, meaning that although I know what I should do, a lot of times, I do it a few seconds too late and it doesn't work out. Every now and then I realize what I should do when I should do it, and I can catch some people off-guard.
My cognitive abilities have progressed a lot. Now, when I watch BJJ I see what kinds of moves people use. It’s no longer two dudes rolling around doing cool stuff I don’t understand. Also, if I don’t understand something in class I can youtube it and I’ll understand what the video is trying to show me. Before, when I youtubed things I would watch the technique, but I wouldn’t really be able to understand what they were doing, if that makes sense.
I’m starting to find people I want to emulate. I watch the Ribeiros, Roger Gracie, and Rafael Lovato Jr. and something in me likes what they do. I don’t know what it is, but when I see those guys roll, or see pieces of their instructional stuff I really dig it. It’s like they’re always putting pressure on their opponents and just crushing their will to survive. I think I’m going to get some DVDs. Pretty soon I’ll have a house and I can put mats in the garage, so I can practice what I see on the DVDs. I’m told the Ryan Hall DVDs are pretty awesome, too.
Oh yeah, I got my first stripe. Only 15 more to go.
12/11/16 Where is everybody? I’m sitting here writing this instead of rolling at my gym. I had to stay late at my job, and for the second or third time in two weeks I missed class. It sucks, but that’s life.
BACKSTORY TIME!!!
I recently got a nail in the sidewall of my tire. It couldn’t be plugged so I had to replace my tire. My tires are apparently not very common, so I ended up having to get a nicer tire. I didn’t want to have one different tire on my truck so I replaced both rear tires. What does this have to do with BJJ? Calm down, I’m getting there. I posted on Facebook that I was looking for tires. A friend replied to me about tires. He recently replaced some of his. To make a long story somewhat shorter… He couldn’t afford the tires he wanted and to get a decent set of tires, he had to open a credit card and do a bunch of other things just to get something for his truck. I got two tires without thinking of the cost, and drove away with little worry. I then, while at work, scheduled a private lesson. The focus of the private lesson… To learn some drills that I can do at home, on my mats that I just bought for my garage… Using the grappling dummy I also bought because my wife won’t let me practice on her anymore. Things could be a lot worse.
I’m bummed I’m stuck at work waiting for my ELISA to finish instead of being in class, but BJJ doesn’t pay my bills. I want to pack up and leave my lab, but today I need to stay at work and make sure I can pay for BJJ, because BJJ isn’t my job.
That’s where I am right now. The realization that BJJ isn’t my job. I have kind of an extremist personality. I’d love to go to every seminar, and every class, but I can’t. Heck, I’d love to go to every class when I’m not supposed to be working, but that’s not possible either. I have to be happy with what I can do. Which is apparently more than some…
Now to the genesis of this post. I’ve noticed a few of the people I started with aren’t showing up anymore. They’ve been gone for weeks or months. Some have stopped showing up all together. Some of the people that I started with that were there every single day are no longer showing up. I’m sure they all have their reasons, but it’s odd to me that people that were so into it for a few months would suddenly stop being interested. I’m just scratching the surface of BJJ and it’s blowing my mind. I can’t imagine stopping now and not learning all the cool things I’m seeing the upper belts do. I thought to myself that a lot of these people would be back, and they were only taking a short break, but it looks like we lost some. I missed a few classes, but i’m back at the gym.
I guess i’ve made it past the first round of drop outs? I’m more sad about this than anything. I’m happy i’m still there, but i’m a little sad other people either can’t or decided to stop their journey. Such is life.

2017.07.28 21:32 PCP1120 Review! - War On The Catwalk (Cleveland) [WARNING: Super Long & Detailed]

Hey sisters! I always do review posts after tour shows, so here's some info and my opinions about the WOTC show in Cleveland :) I'll break it down by queen and tell you about
1) their performances
2) their bantecrowd interactions
3) their Q&A question
4) my interaction with them at merch signing!
Overview: In general, I personally feel that this tour was more entertaining than the Season 8 tour. I don't know if it's just because this was a new set of girls that I haven't seen before, but you could tell that the girls all get along and most of the time their banter was more entertaining than the actual performances. Trinity is an absolutely outstanding host. She was definitely the highlight of the entire night for me, but we'll get into that in her section!
I didn't get a meet and greet ticket this time because M&P have hiked their prices up into a ridiculous price point for that. A regular VIP ticket was over $100 after taxes, and a super fan ticket was over $150. Remember, super fan tickets only include a pre-autographed poster, a lanyard and a quick picture with the queens. You still have to pay for any extra merch that you want. I really recommend that if a photo isn't super important for you to get a cheaper ticket and just buy merch of your favorites since they do a signing after the show. You get way more time with them than you would during the "official" meet and greet (at least from the past 3 M&P meet and greets I've been a part of).
Trinity Taylor: Like I said before, Trinity was an OUTSTANDING host. She kept things moving along smoothly, interacted so much with the audience, and had a great sense of humor the whole night. She kept flirting with one of the security guards all night, leaping into his arms and rubbing his head 😂
Then at one point, she called 3 guys on stage, 2 gay and 1 straight. She had them all twerk and made the straight guy stay since "he needed some help". She asked him if him and his girlfriend have ever done anal, to which he said no and you could hear his girlfriend scream "BULLSHIT!" from the back of the theater, I died 😂 Trinity then taught him how to twerk better and then said he could have a shirt for being such a good sport, but only if he gave her a kiss on the cheek. He went for it and she literally grabbed his face and made out with him for a good 5 seconds 😂 He blushed and laughed and rushed off stage and this was one of the funniest moments of the night.
Her only performance of the night was in a skin tight blue bodysuit, very slightly reminiscent of her club kid runway.
At the signing after the show, I walked up and she called me a cutie which was super flattering :) I told her that I'm going to see her in Columbus in September and she said that we'd talk more then since M&P were trying to hurry the lines along. I told her that she was a fantastic host and she seemed to really appreciate that. She grabbed my hand, said thank you and that we'd see each other soon.
Kimora Blac: Kimora's performances were my personal favorites of the night purely because she did mixes and interacted with the audience. Her first number was in a black leather leotard with really full blonde hair and tall black leather boots to a Pussycat Dolls remix. She was super sexy as expected and spent a lot of time off stage, stomping up the aisles and giving lap dances. Afterwards she asked if the everyone liked her number and there was applause, but it wasn't deafening, so she goes "Shit, y'all are a Republican state I forgot about that" 😂 Then she goes "I'll be back out later for my next number! You guys wanna see my titties? Will you like me better if I show my titties?" Her banter was really funny and personable and it really pleasantly surprised me.
Her second number was a Nicki Minaj medley in a black bodysuit with crazy neon green hair. I think she forgot some of the words at some point so she did one of the old classic Nicki Minaj blank stares and rubbed her boobs for a few seconds 😂
Her Q&A question was when she put on a dress for the first time. She said it was when she was 14 and "it wasn't even her mom's, it was her friend's from down the street."
She was SO lovely during the signing. She saw that I was wearing an Alaska shirt and goes "Aw, I see you supporting my sister, I love Alaska." I told her that I had her Hot Topic shirt and that she had put me in her Instagram collage of people that were wearing them, but I had left it on campus and couldn't wear it, and she said that it just meant a lot that I had got one. She asked my name and I told her Parker, as in Victoria Porkchop, and it kind of took her aback and she pulled this exact Alyssa Edwards expression and it was wonderful.
Then she asked if it was hot in the theater because "it was hot on stage and those velvet chairs looked super sweaty" 😂 I said that she's going to need to come back soon so we can actually take a picture (no pictures were allowed) and she said that she'd "totally sneak one but they'd probably freak out". She said that she was so grateful for my support and everything that she said just seemed so genuine and humble.
Farrah Moan: Farrah's first number was a burlesque performance to what I believe was a Christina Aguilera song. She peeled out of a black gown and gloves into a panty and bra set (Jasmine Masters is shook). She nearly slipped at one point and Trinity came out and made fun of her for nearly falling "almost 14 times". Afterwards, Farrah sat on stage and said hello and that "she's not a real burlesque performer but she likes to pretend that she is." Then, she made the audience do 3 moans: her classic one, a sexy one, and then a "kind of sexy but you can also tell that you're still slightly scared" one 😂
Her second performance was a fun little pop number in a pink stoned leotard with a feather headpiece and beautifully stoned tights (now Valentina is shook).
Her Q&A question was which queen from any season that she'd sleep with and she went on about how she doesn't think she could do that because in a relationship she likes to be the girl, so she likes super masculine men. Then she was like, "well I guess it's just a fuck and not like we're getting married huh?" and she told us about how she met Milk for the first time a little while ago. She said "I'm kind of a hipster in the way where when everybody likes something I'm like whatever about it. So when everyone was talking about how hot Milk was I was like eh, he's ok. But then I met him out of drag in a club a while ago and he was so sweet...and polite...and everything you'd want in a first date fuck. So I guess I'm gonna have to go with Milk."
Farrah was my absolute favorite signing experience :) I walked up and she told me that she loved my hair and she got up and hugged me. She said that I was so cute and she was like "Do you live around here?" I said that I was from about an hour away and she goes "Babe, when are you gonna get out of here?? I went outside to smoke a cigarette a while ago in this and I looked around and I was like 'hmm, maybe I shouldn't be out here like this', so I came back inside." 😂 Then she asked me what my name was. I told her, and she sat back for a second and goes "...I know you don't I?" and I said "yeah, I'm one of the lucky few that you follow on Twitter" and she went "OH MY GOD! I knew it! I love you so much!" and it was so flattering and sweet and I felt so important 😂
I told her that I was super bummed I couldn't make the meet and greet and that she needs to come back around sometime soon and she said "Hmm, I think I'm probably gonna come back around sometime soon. I'm not sure though. Where do you want me to go? I'll tell my management and we can work some stuff out." That honestly really surprised me and I thought it was really sweet of her to offer to do that :) We called each other cute for a couple more seconds and then she got up and hugged me one more time before I had to move on.
Alexis Michelle: I think Alexis put on the most well received performances of the night which made me happy since she wasn't very well received on the show. Her first performance she sang live (I don't remember the song), but apparently it was the first time she had done it on the tour and she was glad that it went over well. Her second number was a Liza Minnelli performance and it was really high energy and well done :)
Her Q&A question was who was the least liked during the season. She said that Valentina wasn't the least liked during the season, she was the least liked after the season. She said that they found Eureka was pretty annoying during filming, but then she injured herself and went home so everyone felt bad about that and there was no one else to be annoyed by so they all turned their annoyance on her 😂 Trinity went "I didn't feel that way about Eureka. Fuck Eureka." and everyone gasped and she was like "y'all need to relax with all of this gasping bullshit" 😂
Shea Coulée: Shea put on two good performances as well. Her first number was a Beyoncé medley in a black leotard with her big black boa from the naughty nightie runway and HUGE honey blond hair. Her second number was a live performance of "Cocky" which was amazing. She wore a huge blue fur coat with turquoise hair.
Her Q&A question was about "when her goodwill ran out and she finally gave up on Nina" which was pretty shady 😂 She said that she was just pretty annoyed that she always stood up for Nina and then Nina said that she of all people was talking about her. "She could've named anybody else in the damn place and I would've been like 'Imma take em out!' but then she said that and I was like 'bitch what?'" She said that they've talked after the show and she's cool with Nina, but she can't speak for how Nina feels about her.
She was super cordial and polite during the signing. She called me "baby" a lot and I told her that I love "Cocky" and had no idea that her mother and siblings were raised in Youngstown (which she told us after her first number). I told her that I was sad that I couldn't see her and Sasha in Columbus for the 4th of July and she said that she might be coming back to the area soon so to look out for that :)
Sasha Velour: This is no shade to Sasha whatsoever, but I was kind of left with what Ross called "drag blue balls" with her. Her first performance was the English version of "Je ne regrette rien" with the suitcase, and her second was her performance of "Praying" in the Godzilla dress. It most definitely could be because I was sitting kind of far back and couldn't see her face very well, but she didn't seem to commit to emoting as intensely as she usually does which is my favorite part of her performance style. Both performances were well done, but I guess I was either expecting too much or I just couldn't fully appreciate it since I couldn't see very well. However, she was extremely sweet and conversational and uplifting the whole night.
Her Q&A question was about her coming out story and she said that she came out to her dad when she was 15 because they were eating at a TGI Friday's and he asked her if she was "experimenting with her identity" to which she said "yeah, I'm bisexual". Her mom asked her at a park about a year later and she was pretty jealous that Sasha told just her dad and not her 😂 She said "You know your dad and I talk about everything you two talk about right? So, um, is there anything important you'd like to tell me that you told him and not me?" It was a really cute story and yes, she did manage to throw in the word "queer" a couple of times throughout the night 😂
TL;DR The show was amazing, and I really recommend that all of you go see it if it's coming near you! Farrah and Kimora are ridiculously sweet, and they all put on great, diverse types of performances. Just don't waste your money on a VIP ticket ;)

2017.07.17 06:21 whiskeylovegood Queer Expo experience!

Yesterday my best friend and I went to Queer Expo in Melbourne. Even though turn out was a bit quiet (this is the first year they've had an expo like this in Australia) we were able to get heaps of opportunities to have proper chats with both Ru Girls and local girls. It was awesome! Here's some of our experiences:
First thing in the morning we had meet and greet tix with Miss Royale. We were running late because we're cheap, messy, manly queens and ended up doing the last of our makeup in the car just to get there before the meet and greet ended. As it turns out Latrice was also running late so my friend and I ended up being seated right next to her at the table which we could not have planned better if we tried. I was dazed by Latrice's makeup up close, it was so gorgeous. She could sense everyone was nervous and asked everyone where they're from - one of the guys said "the suburbs" (as opposed to interstate) and Latrice laughed, calling it white privelige. She chatted to us about queer culture in Australia and how exciting it is to have an expo, even if it is kinda disorganised (she joked there were no biscuits at the venue). I explained how the original schedule for the event had it mistakenly listed that Latrice was only doing a meet and greet on Sunday, which was fitting as the Lord's day. She laughed and said that Jesus is indeed a biscuit, and we should let him sop us up. After chatting a bit more about her time on drag race, and the audition process (notably how Ru told her "I loved your video, I just couldn't see you!" - Latrice apparently filmed it on a shitty old camera and had terrible lighting in her apartment) she told us a story about going jetskiing in Perth (western Australian town) with Mimi Imfurst. Apparently Mimi had never jetskiied before and went full blast over a crazy wave and rocketed metres into the air above Latrice and her fiance, screaming for dear life. Latrice said she thought Mimi was gonna die and couldn't believe that she landed it. At this point her fiance Christopher was nearby, and everyone beckoned him to come and join us. Christopher and Latrice spoke about meeting, dating and their upcoming wedding. There was an unmistakable love and authenticity between the two of them, and it was really magical to see such a candid side to Latrice and her gorgeous fiance. She spoke (inspiringly) about how it's now almost 10 years since she's been out of prison - I said she needs a lifetime original movie, and she and Christopher both laughed saying they're "working on it!" lol. Christopher took a group shot for instagram, and then Latrice did some quick selfies before rushing off to her mainstage performance. Overall, this was my first experience meeting a Ru girl and I am still pinching myself. Latrice was warm and hilarious, and looked exquisite. Her mainstage performance was also fantastic, and she lipsynced the house down boots with a reveal, shoe toss and twirl and everything. She's a pro, and it was surreal to meet her.
After our meet and greet, my friend and I went into the main hall for the expo. We were still a bit starstruck from Latrice, and we ended up dawdling around in the foyer while we figured out where to go. Charlie Hides was standing nearby and seemed to sense that we were nervous, because she walked right on up to us and introduced herself. She was in the most towering heels (biggest of the day by far) and looked banging in her skirt. She asked our names and we joked about my boy name also being Charlie! She admired my friend's sewing work, and remarked that she loves a crafty queen and sews all her own outfits. I told her that her and Shea should've been high (or won) the Princess challenge, and she said that Val was wearing a bathing suit and that she knew the viewers would see it for what it was - and that Aja's rant was "on everyone's minds anyway". She also said that for that challenge she helped Alexis and Farrah with their costumes, and that the producers could've easily given her a villain edit by showing her sabotage Farrah with the skirt that she helped her make lol. At this point one of the volunteers was asking Charlie to come back to her booth, so she took me by the hand and said come with (I couldn't believe it!). She chatted to us more about sewing, Australia, acting, impersonations, and got one of the guys around to take some photos of us together. I can't express how touched and impressed I was by Charlie. Meeting her made my day, by far. She truly took the time to get to know us and make us feel seen and equal at the expo. Later in the day when I was walking by her booth (she had lots of fans around at this point), she called out "Charlie!" in a deep voice and then turned her back when I looked around. She ran over laughing, gave me another hug, and then continued back to her fans. I got the real sense that she loved being there, and took the time to get know fans and other queens. I see now why they call her a Dame, because she really does have the grace and air of someone royal.
Here's the shot of us together!
Good ol' Dazza! Darienne was dressed in a beautiful gold and black gown, and as always her hair and makeup were fishy and flawless as fuck. (I do think Darienne has one of the most underrated mugs on the show.) When we got to her booth she was eating a packet of Thins (Australian chip brand) and offered us some. We joked about the irony of a chip company calling themselves Thins and she said she'll eat the whole thing regardless of its name. She chatted to us about the show, complimented our outfits and spoke about her time in Australia. She spoke highly of her S6 cast mates, especially Bianca Adore and Courtney, and said that they all thought (especially Bianca - whom she impersonated a phone call from) that Darienne was in with a chance for Top 3 after the final 4 challenge where she slayed the lipsync/acting components and made Ru laugh hysterically. We chatted about the editing of the show, and I remarked that in many of the Bendela/Darienne moments you can see people laughing but the sound is cut off so it seems shady. She also said that "it's none of your fucking business" was something of a catchphrase/ongoing joke that she said multiple times on the show with the girls, but that they only kept it once to make it look shady. Also apparently there were a few more moments that didn't make it to the final edit which surprised her - such as the continuation of Michelle's "look at you in your pawn scum green" comment where she went on to praise Darienne's look extensively, and a judging encounter where Ru asked Darienne why she hasn't won a challenge yet and Darienne said theatrically "because of you!" which had me gagged lmao. She spoke about traveling, the experience of preparing for the show, and briefly about Pandora/her drag family. Another tidbit was that she goes by Darienne even out of drag, which I didn't know. She said how before Drag Race, drag was something that she was winding down on - possibly not doing it as much as she used to. Then she got cast and it revived her love for the craft which was great to hear. It was a really nice chat, and she was so funny (as expected). Classy gal all round!
Oh wow, where do I start with Jujubee! We had originally planned to pay for photos with Juju, but after the laid back style of the Latrice meet and greet we figured that a meet and greet with Juju would give us the chance to do both, and I'm so glad we did. There was only a handful of us at the meet and greet, so Juju decided to run back into the staff/celebrity area and grab some of the free drinks for us. She looked so fishy and lovely, and I was seated right beside her the whole time which was incredible. She was so approachable and naturally funny, and really loved to hear from all of us. She spoke about Trump and Pauline Hanson (one of our equally terrible political figures) and read Pauline's haircut to filth. When she heard I was studying theatre at university she spoke about her time at drama school which was so cool to bond over. I asked her about her personal journey into drag and how it relates to her experience of gender, and she said that she'd always been drawn to feminine things when she was little and it's always been a part of her. She said that she doesn't see herself as trans but as someone who likes to express themselves as feminine and masculine at different times, like some days she'll want to have her beard out and be her full on boy self. Tatianna snuck out of the celebrity area halfway through the meet and greet in sneakers to grab lunch at one of the food trucks, and Juju laughed saying she "loves that bitch". She also said how AS2 was an amazing vehicle for Tati, as before that Tati was working weekends which prohibited her ability to travel - and now she's able to travel the world and with a renewed fanbase and Juju's really happy for her. After some more chats about fashion and clothing (she wanted to know about the best op shops/Savers in Melbourne, she's a frugal queen!) we all had personal photos with her and headed back to the main hall. She was so nice, and personable, and just naturally funny. Loved meeting her.
Chad, who was in a lovely blue dress, was often moving about so we grabbed a brief moment with her while we could. She was happy to stop and chat to us both, and we asked about how her time in Melbourne has been. She explained that she was brought on originally to replace Alyssa who dropped out, and so this was a bit of a last minute plan for her but that she loves the opportunity and is glad there's an expo of this kind starting up. She said it's been nice to stay at the main hotel with all the girls and that many of them have their partners with them (though Chad's hubby was back home). She was being ushered on by one of the staff to a signing, so asked us to swing by her booth later when she had a free moment. Later in the day we went over again when she had a free moment, chatted some more about Australia and drag race, and took a selfie with her. She was admittedly very tired (it had been a long expo) but she was so congenial and present despite that, and took the time to be there for her fans. So glad I got to meet Mother Dust!
Laganja had a snazzy booth set up, with merch and photo opportunities etc that we got a chance to stop by towards the end of the day. You had to pay for some merch to get a selfie but with stickers as cheap as $3 it was extremely reasonable. She looked beautiful in purple and pink, with a short wig, and I asked her if her purple hair in the "stupid girls" lipsync was boy hair or a wig (it was a wig). She was super, super sweet, high as your receeding hairline (according to the volunteer who was working with her for the day) and really kind towards her fans. She had such a wonderful attitude about the expo, was really supportive to the other queens and the fans, and just generally super cool, okurrr!
Shangela also had a booth set up in a similar order to Laganja (c'mon Haus of Edwards buisness model, let's get sickening!) and you purchased a bracelet/DVD/shirt for as cheap as $10 and you got a selfie with her. She was, as expected, a PROFESSIONAL and was jumping from fan to fan making them laugh, giving them a brief moment, and even throwing in a photo of her which she would autograph with your name for free. (Which is great considering that the autograph signings were, in all other respects, a paid gig). She performed on the main stage as well, and fucking slayed beyond words (Violet voice: but what else is new?) and was very 'on' the whole day. Didn't get much of a personal chance to chat but given the amount of performing and fans, I was happy to even meet her and get a photo etc.
I briefly saw Pandora, Tatianna and Kimora over the day. We went over to Kimora's booth and she showed us her banana merch (love it!) but she was immediately pulled away for a meet and greet, so didn't get to chat about anything else - she looked hot and was happy to be there. Pandora was dressed in a beautiful Tardis (what you call me?!) dress and we chatted for a brief moment while she was being lead to her meet and greet. And Tatianna was very busy at her booth, as you can imagine, but the minimum purchase of merch to get a selfie was 35 for a t-shirt which, at that point of the day, I just couldn't quite justify unfortunately. But we said a quick hello and complimented her makeup (she was flawless, even outside in the sun).
Overall, it was an incredible day. I'm so thrilled that Australia is becoming such a strong destination for the Ru girls, and it also was amazing to get to see our local talent out on display as well. Loved it!

2017.06.28 20:17 ChinnyNotSkinny Thoughts on blasians in the US and elsewhere

Introduction

It is hard to list examples of successful WMAF eurasians in the United States who are prominent in the American media. In most cases, the few we can name had to go to Asia first to make a name for themselves, such as Daniel Henney and Dennis Oh. But oddly, we can name more prominent American blasians from BMAF, despite WMAF being significantly more common. For instance:
There are also blasians who have half-asian mothers:
Some of these people even have the stereotypical American GI father - foreign Asian mother parenting combo which is heavily associated with US imperialism in Asia. What is different about BMAF blasians to WMAF eurasians which could explain this?
 
 

Theory on in-groups and racial identity

African-americans have a significantly larger population in the United States (12% or about 37 million), compared to asian-americans who only number 5.6% (17 million). It is further exacerbated when you consider “asian-american” is an extremely broad term which encompasses a lot of different groups. It includes Desi peoples from South Asian countries such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, who have a different set of circumstances altogether (so “asian” as used elsewhere in this post will only be referring to the peoples from East & Southeast Asia).
These groups, especially first generation immigrants who make up a good portion do not see other asian groups as belonging to the same overarching entity due to cultural/historical differences, old world tensions, and so on. And why would they? People from Europe will likewise prefer to identify by their nationality, rather than as a white person belonging to the white race.
By contrast, most african-americans trace their ancestry back to West Africa. But having lived in the United States for many generations means they have long since become a unified diaspora. They have large communities in cities across the US, institutions such as HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges & Universities) whereas outside of several enclaves here and there such as Southern California asian-americans do not.
It is questionable whether asian-americans can ever gain a significant foothold in the US when as much as 40-60% of asian-american women want nothing to do with asian men. But perhaps more important than any population demographics, african-americans also have a strong sense of their own (counter)culture and media presence.
All of these community networks and power structures are likewise extended to blasians and other biracial/multiracial black people, because what constitutes “black” is extremely flexible. People have become conditioned to the point that they think even slightly dark skin = black and learned to pick out non-white (african) features with the highest scrutiny. This is true of the West but especially in North America. Historically Additionally african-americans will often “claim” mixed-race people as black, and whites and other groups will accordingly perceive these individuals as black.
It seems few groups apart from the black american community engage in this phenomenon. African countries, including the ones african-americans originated from do not follow one-drop rule style-thinking or claim mixed-race individuals as their own. Then why do african-americans do it? I suspect it emerged in response to half-black people being treated for all intents and purposes as black by whites. It may also have something to do with biracial black individuals historically aligning themselves with black causes in America. For instance, Frederick Douglass who was key to the abolition of black slavery, was mixed (white father, black mother). The same holds true for civil rights activist Malcolm X (white grandfather on his mother’s side). One of his nicknames was “Detroit Red” because of his ginger hair!
 
 

More interesting examples

This goes back to a time in America when mixed-race white/black people were racially categorised by the government according to the “One-drop rule” (also known as hypodescent), where having as much as one Sub-Saharan African ancestor made a person black (such as The Racial Integrity Act passed in 1924 in Virginia). While no longer a legal practise it continues to be an influential social force. Let's discuss some examples:
 

Drake

Born in Canada to a black father and white jewish mother. As a rapper he almost certainly identifies more strongly with his black side but it is clear he is mixed with white. His nose and mouth are African features, but he has a caucasian face shape and is comparatively light skin tone.
 

Keegan Michael Key

An american actocomedian who also has a black father and white mother. Key identifies as biracial but it is likely he identifies more as black than white, considering a sketch he made several years ago with Jordan Peele, his costar on comedy show Key & Peele. The sketch in question was about a smartphone app which determines if you are black enough to be allowed to use a certain racial slur (video link, NSFW language obviously).
Most white americans would make a snap judgement of Key and think he was a black guy. However, were he to hop on a plane to South Africa he would receive very different treatment, where there is a widely recognised ethnic group for people of mixed black and white ancestry.
Key does have a somewhat darker olive skin tone which suggests he has black admixture. But he also has very white caucasian facial features and profile. Look at this photo of him with Jordan Peele whom I mentioned earlier. Both of them are biracial black-white, but it shows which one of the two can better pass for white. Key actually looks more caucasian(white) than black, whereas Peele has features common in people of African descent such as a shorter nose and wider nostrils.
Did you say Keegan Michael Key was white passing?. Just think about it from the perspective of people living somewhere such as the Ivory Coast or Ghana. Key would most likely be pretty white-passing to them. In fact, most african-americans would probably stick out like a sore thumb were they to travel to these countries. Aside from obvious differences in culture and mannerisms most african-americans have a good chunk of white DNA. This 2014 study from The American Journal of Human Genetics, for instance, concluded that the average african-american genome is of 72% African and 24% European origin, with <1% being of Native American ancestry. I even found one 2002 study that said 10% of the participants who identified as african-american had over 50% white ancestry.
 

Barack Obama

Obama was widely promoted as the first black president of the United States both by others and himself. This is what he himself had to say on the matter of race:
Well, part of my understanding of race is that it’s more of a social construct than a biological reality. And in that sense, if you are perceived as African American, then you’re African American.
When he says race is a social construct, what he means is that it's a classification which is often subject to time and place. I already showed that race is thought of differently in South Africa than in the United States as an example.
To my eyes Obama looks mixed, and very different from his father who is a full-blooded Kenyan man:
Obama has a strong resemblance to his white maternal grandfather more than anything. They have the same ears, head and facial structure.
 
 

TL;DR for impatient people

Getting back to the topic at hand, the reason blasians seem more successful is because they are better able to identify with/as black and assimilate into the black american community. This has to do with the history of african-americans and their acceptance of mixed-race black people. Nearly all of the blasian women I mentioned above married african-american men which further supports this. Eurasians on the other hand are not only excluded by whites but also asians, the latter whom having such little semblance of a community in America. I guarantee that if blasians did not have a supportive community which accepts and helps them foster an identity, many of them would have the same issues similar to WMAF eurasians.
 
 

WMAF has become the default, BMAF is the "new" WMAF

But don't get the wrong idea from this post. I am not promoting black men with asian women. This interracial coupling is just as problematic as WMAF, and here's why:
  • Many asian women marry out because they despise the looks of asian men and to a lesser extent their own features. Further compounding this they also believe the negative stereotyping society has of asian men. Most of these women prefer to date exclusively white, but not all. Many will date anything but asian, or some exclusively black men.
  • Many black american men marry out because they find black women unattractive as a result of social conditioning and implicit bias, so for very similar reasons as asian women. Such men will instead opt for other races of women with lighter skin, such as white, latina, and including asian.
  • Continuing on from the last point, black men can have yellow fever just like white, or any other non-asian race of men. Likewise, asian women can and do fetishise black men.
  • Following hot on the heels of white sexpats going to Asia, black sexpats have chosen to do the same.
If you're still not convinced, look to the disparity where BMAF outnumbers AMBF by 6:1 in the United States. While the imbalance is less noticeable than WMAF since BMAF's numbers are still comparatively low, it is fast becoming more commonplace and will continue to do so as WMAF becomes more stigmatised.
Better still, look to internet pornography. Pornography from the United States, where most of it is produced anyway, is obsessed with interracial power dynamics and racial stereotypes. The two most common interracial porn categories are probably black men on white women (BMWF), and white men on asian women (WMAF) – funny how this is reflected in real life isn't it? BMWF because some white men are fascinated by black male sexuality and want to see their racist preconceived notions on it entertained – as brutish, overpowering and violent. WMAF because asian women are seen as belonging to a demure, subservient race that can be sexually dominated by white men. However, you will find black men on asian women (BMAF) is also promoted because it complies with the race-based sexual hierarchy, as the pairing of the two utmost hypersexualised extremes – the animalistic, overly masculine black man with the submissive, ultrafeminised asian woman. Second only to white men, It is common for asian-american porn actresses to do scenes with black men.
 
 

It is likely blasians (will) have issues too

Even though what I have previously stated may not suggest it, I also believe that blasians in the United States and elsewhere will live a far from harmonious existence. In this respect they have more in common with eurasians than they do with monoracial black people.
Earlier I mentioned that african-americans are more accepting of bi/multiracial black people. But that comes with a price. There is a strong pressure to conform and discard other identities, which may trigger racial stress and confusion. Tiger Woods, who is of mixed black, asian, white, and native american heritage faced heavy ridicule in the 90s from the african-american community when he said he self-identifies as “Cablinasian” rather than as black. Fast forward 10 years to the present and it's obvious people haven't forgotten about it.
  • Blasian boys and men will likely try to downplay and hide being part asian, or at least won't acknowledge it and place emphasis on being black. There's nothing good associated with asian men in the west – even the “positive” stereotypes (note: despite even the best intentions, “positive” stereotyping is still bad) are more like backhanded compliments which can be reverted into an insult at a moment's notice (e.g. “smart and studious” can be reinterpreted as “nerdy, robotic and unemotional”). They will soon learn at a young age that mentioning they are half asian will be met with jeers of “ching chong chinaman”, “do math” and small penis jokes. This can later manifest as strong feelings of hatred and racism towards the self for being asian, and to asian people. Such incidents have been documented in the past on the hapas subreddit. To be fair, many eurasian males do the same and see themselves as white. But blasians are more successful at hiding their asian-ness, because as I previously explained what constitutes “black” in the West is very lenient.
  • Blasian women however, will be fetishised in black communities and elsewhere for their asian-ness, in a similar way to how asian and eurasian women are already fetishised. Look at the MV for the single “Fine China” which Chris Brown released while he was still dating blasian Karreuche Tran. It is hardcore yellow fever coupled with animosity towards asian men. For god's sake, he beats up all the asian men and gets the asian girl at the end – the message couldn't be clearer.
  • Blasians born to a father from Africa will face “othering” should they be in their father's home country, and be seen as outsiders in a similar way to how eurasian hapas are seen as too white for asians, but also too asian for whites. Those in African countries do not readily accept those of mixed-race like the black american diaspora does. If lighter skin worship has hit African nations, you can make the argument that they might be given preferential treatment in some situations. But how is that working out so far for Eurasian hapas who go to Asia, because they think their half-whiteness will confer an advantage? Outside of a few people who see them as a novelty most do not care and treat them as they would other foreigners. You may also want to rethink whether creating individuals who have a superiority complex over the locals, based on their genetic makeup is a good idea. Because that is exactly what it will lead to.
Research indicates mixed-race black/white people have higher rates of mental health issues than monoracials. There’s Health and Behaviour Risks of Adolescents with Mixed-Race Identity, a 2003 study from the American Public Health Association which is often mentioned on /hapas.
Even more recent is Mixed Experiences – growing up mixed race: mental health and wellbeing, a 2014 report from the National Children’s Bureau in the UK:
While mixed-race young people are over represented in the care, youth justice and child protection systems, the authors said they were "invisible" in public service practice and policy.
Co-author Dinah Morley was concerned at the lack of understanding over what it meant to be mixed race, a group most likely to suffer racism. "I was surprised at how much racism, from black and white people, had come their way," she said. "A lot of children were seen as black when they might be being raised by a white single parent and had no understanding of the black culture. The default position for a child of mixed race is that they are black."
The report found that those with mixed-race backgrounds were more at risk of mental health issues because of their struggle to develop an identity. Morley said the strongest common experience was the "too white to be black, too black to be white".
 
Lastly, there have also been several instances of blasians snapping and going on a crime spree, similar to eurasians like ER. Not many, but a few.

A fan got in her face about it coz he was Alexis’ producers. He wanted to take it outside. Jiggly doesn’t give a shit if he was a producer or if he was fisting her. It was a joke  Also mentioned how she didn’t know who Vivienne Pinay was coz she never performs in new York  Thoughts on Reunion looks: o Farrah looks stunning o Shea always slays o I loved Nina’s look o Peppermint is always gonna be Peppermint. Wants to know what titty shimmer she used o Cynthia looked good in red but prefers her finale look o Kimora looked stunning. Jiggly wants the head piece o Loved Aja’s bcalla head piece o They all looked good. Like them all. Sasha’s look.

If u don’t hold urself accountable to what u said or if its shadily edited then say something. Hold urself accountable.  Jiggly saw the twist happen. It was a motherfucking battle  Team New York despite loving them all  Change to fan fave was accurate coz congeniality should be given to the nicest, sweetest girl  Thought it was trite of all the queens to rally against Valentina even if she didn’t deserve it. Thought her playing miss Columbia was fitting in snatch game now  Feels bad for Farrah coz she also had a friend on the show who stepped away and even now when having been in the room with her she ignored her. But had the audacity to get free tickets to Christmas queens. I don’t like fake hoes. It was DIDA!!!  She thinks queens should vote for miss congeniality. Maybe even the alumni get to vote  Who is your not top 4 fave? She still likes Valentina coz she represented her community with elegance but she does love Kimora Blac. She was her fave. Her finale outfit (kim k cavali inspired gown was everything). 3 asian girls proved to America that not all Asian girls are smart nerds. What is horticulture? What is a tony? What is an adjective?
Phi Phi entered the live in chat  ‘Let it go’ about phi phi vs jiggly beef from 5 years ago  Phi Phi: YOU NEEDED TO GO! I HELPED YOU  Jiggly: Fuck you Phi Phi. Dida needed to go home. You didn’t help me.  Phi Phi is a real g  A lot of things shown about phi phi on the show is her playing around or inside jokes.

2017.06.13 09:20 Handsome_Golden_Boy Kimora Lee's Daughter with an Asian Man (Hapa?)

Didn't realize Kimora Lee Simmons's beautiful daughter Ming Lee was dating an Asian guy named Taimaru. Is he an Asian passing Hapa?
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-4597768/Kimora-Lee-Simmons-shows-daughter-prom.html
Even though he's a lot shorter than she is, they are a very good looking couple. And its awesome that Kimora referred to him as her "other son" and was approving.
I was curious to see if Taimaru was Hapa. On his Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/taimaruuu/?hl=en
There is a pic of him and his mom. Something about him looks Hapa-ish, but I'm not sure.
Anyway, congrats to them!

2017.01.30 17:15 PCP1120 Queens' Tour Schedules Compilation

Hey guys :) Surprise! It's not a poll :P With the new year under way and a new round of tours for the queens, I thought it'd be handy to compile a list of all of the links where you can see the queens' schedules. I know I get super frustrated when a girl comes close and I don't know about it, or I just can't find their dates in general.
Since I live in a place where there's not a Roscoe's or a Micky's type club super close (where all the girls go, often), I don't really have a club that has many updates concerning them so my best bet is the queen's own site. These are the one's I could find, and if there's an alternate way to find a queen's schedule, put it in the comments and I'll update the list. Hopefully this can be used as a reference whenever you want to know what your favorite girl is up to :)
