Ruby Rhod is one of my favorite characters in sci-fi ever because he is Luc Besson’s vision of the hetero sex symbol of the future: a flamboyant, emotionally labile man who wears skin-tight leopard print or decks himself in roses, a man who accessorizes with big jewelry and dabbles in cosmetics. And the ladies love him. Everything about him screams “gay” according to our stereotypes, but he’s portrayed as a 100% straight sexual dynamo.
Besson is one of the few directors I’ve seen who actually recognizes that our ideas of sexuality and gender performance might have changed drastically in the future.

This was always one of those shows I assumed I’d hate — about a bunch of women I couldn’t relate to. It does have a teenager, though, so I checked out the first couple of episodes. I was somewhat optimistic because I like Bunheads and this was similar banter-heavy fun. Also, the kid actually goes to the damn expensive school that will help her future, instead of doing the typical “oh, I can just stay where I am because my friends are here/I’m blue-collar and therefore pure of heart” routine (okay, bitter about all the times a character fights for something like that, then gives it up after it has been achieved at great inconvenience to other people, and we’re supposed to applaud their individuality and wild spirit or something).
Ep 1 — OMG bebe Padalecki kawayui~ Ep 2 — joke about looking for a guy named Moose *snigger*
Also, Alex Borstein as the grouchy harpist is entertaining. And Bunheads is sooooper similar in retrospect, although I like Kelly Bishop’s character in Bunheads a lot better.
Another series to get back to when I’m done with the thesis, I think.
Friends, here is the Wheelmate Laptop Steering Wheel Desk, and the product created such an impression on me, I decided to review it.

It’s true. I wasn’t disappointed.
