I’m watching Gabi on the Roof in July right now and honestly loving it and soaking it up because I can’t believe I’m gonna say this and even more so I can’t believe that I feel this but I wish I was living in New York again.
My girlfriend is the only person I know who makes her bed every morning (well, now I do it too, after much resistance, because it makes her so happy). She’s got this very particular way of doing it, especially when it comes to the pillow formation. The two pillows in their crisp white cases that we actually sleep on go down first. Then the dark blue body pillow. Then the two pillows with the special white quilted pillowcases that match the white quilted duvet go on top. Finally it’s finished.
One day she told me that the dark blue body pillow used to go down first, but when she started dating me, she changed the order because she thought I would say something about the dark one being put at the bottom of all the white ones.
Race politics, infiltrating my relationships via pillow placement.
and at first I thought I hated it, but I asked my girlfriend if it looked like a lesbian haircut (lol) and she said yes so I was like ok, maybe it’s ok. Then I looked at it this morning and realized it’s sort of Shane circa season 1 (of the L Word duh) so now I’m in loooooove with it.
This French film, starring the enchanting Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos, who has one of the most sweet angelic faces I’ve ever seen, tells the tumultuous story of a young lesbian couple, and it looks both terrifically sexy and tremendously heartbreaking. The film is adapted from the comic of the same title by Julie Maroh. The movie has received many accolades, especially for its two stars. It is also a much anticipated film for us because it features the longest lesbian sex scene in the history of cinema. What!? It received an NC17 rating as a result and that’s just glorious! Watching the trailer though, it’s easy to see how many tears will be shed as we watch two sweet young girls find love and fight their way through it. When we watched it the second time, I said that this is the sort of film Sofia Coppola should be making (it’s going to take us awhile to get over the travesty that was The Bling Ring). An even more delightful bonus is that Léa and Adèle are extra super adorable and cuddly with each other at events and they both dress like a couple of saucy little vixens, so hopefully we’ll see more of them together during award season! The film will be released in the US October 25th.
