Channel 4 ad: “Later on Hollyoaks, the secret is out”
Boyfriend: "Do you know what I really like? I have absolutely no idea what that’s referring to."
Is it weird that one of my most favourite little details in My Mad Fat Diary is Finn using Rae’s big teddy bear as a pillow the night of the sexy party?
For an episode so utterly bursting with amazing, meaningful, human details, it does feel a bit odd that that would be my favourite…but I just love it.
I think maybe it’s just the actual reality of a cool, attractive, 17 year old indie guy happily and peacefully bedding down on a teddy bear, especially because Rae had been sitting hugging it earlier in the night - I love it.
Did Punk say “creative genius”? Does that count as fourth wall?
Uhm, did someone’s phone just go flying?
From my evening of World AIDS Day.
I tend to be quite proud of my city every December 1st because a lot of buildings do get involved and do their bit for awareness.
I only just heard about this…
I…I’m literally shaking, I’m that angry.
I always read about the activities of the Westboro Baptist Church with disdain, a roll of the eyes, a shake of the head that people, actual human beings, can be that shit and that insane… And I always giggle at the awesome actions that the pro-gays do across the street from the church; rainbow houses and drag shows galore… But it was still massively disconnected from me really, because I’m British. That shit, as much as I can’t ignore it and I care about it, ultimately falls under “Crazy ‘muricans are crazy” in my head.
But this? This is attacking my home. Not just Glasgow, not just my city and my people, but LGBT in Glasgow. From The Polo being the first club I went to at 16, to every Glasgow Pride, LGBT History Month high teas, Riot Grrrl-esque gigs, baring witness at Civil Partnerships at the Registry Office, every LUYD and Sheboom event night… Every loved one who’s come out, been themselves and loved who they’ve loved… FHQ to Bennets, the friends who’ve worked for LGBT Youth Scotland, the drag exhibits, Glasgay!, Glasgow’s World AIDS Day service… Every night and laugh and smile and cry I’ve shared with LGBT Scots… To being “the honorary lesbian”
I… This is my life. My family. My home. It is MY city that is in mourning. It is MY people that are picking each other up so beautifully after something so awful. It is MY country that is passing gay marriage, so fuckin’ proudly, and it is MY community that these cunts are attacking…
I am so angry. I’m absolutely fuckin’ ragin’!
There are a lot of really rubbish people in this world. There’s a lot of really damaged people in this world. There’s a lot of really lost people in this world. There’s even a lot of really evil people in the world… But these fuckers of The Westboro Church? Scum. Absolute scum. Scum who will never do anything good, will never understand real love (any or all love), who will never be able to embody the exceptional, wonderful traits of Scots, of Glaswegians - Weegies of any gender, of any sexuality, of any faith, even. Scum who the rest of the world will continue to detest and stand against.
So please Westboro Baptist Church, do one and go fuck yoursel’s. And just…as a P.S? Just try it; we’d kick your fuckin’ heads in, nae bother.
Eh, aren’t the X Factor lot wearing World AIDS Day ribbons? They always do! For years! Every year! That’s the only reason I’d ever give X Factor any kudos! They were always the only TV show that wore them and I had to love them for that.
Did they wear them last year?
This feels like a major campaign blow. Not happy.
I say this as a Glaswegian:
Get tae fuck Alex Salmond, you absolute twat. Using the helicopter crash in my city for Independence PR? Cunt, total cunt!
That is a whole lot of blue.
