Briefs: week of Jan 11

  • I discovered a new comic! Dar: A Super Girly Top Secret Comic Diary (by Erika Moen) is unflinching, witty goodness and her maker, Moen, is queer. Sadly, it’s the comic’s end. [Jezebel]
  • I LOVE THE SAUNA. The one at the gym I mean. I kinda wish girls had the same kind of thing as boys do, for hooking up. Wait… do I?
  • Owen Pallet, a multi-instrumentalist based in Toronto but with strong ties to Montreal (i.e. the Bell Orchestra, etc) talks about the death of Final Fantasy in this awesome write-up. [Now] [cover of Mariah Carey song]
  • As many of my friends know, I am an avid Twitterer (if you’re bored, click on link at left to look at my past tweets). But the recent article about female-empowered twitterers by Vanity Fair makes me want to quit it. It’s kinda like when your little sister discovers My Little Pony and you’re over it you know? And it’s all because the VF piece employed words like “Twilebrity” and  “tweeple.” BARF. [Gawker]
  • The Up Yours! party on Friday was the largest to date and attendees helped raise over 600$ for Radical Queer Week. [Up Yours! + next party]
  • Jane Lynch, (Glee, The L Word, A Mighty Wind) isn’t happy with the way Obama’s administration is handling the gay rights “issue.” And you don’t want to make Mama Lynch mad. [ONTD]
  • Sergio Martinez, a Montrealer who was banned from the United States since 1994 after having been found with HIV medication, is now allowed entry into the U.S. [Toronto Star]
  • CLITTER! It’s glitter. For your pussy!
