Sights and Sounds #30

Videos and whatnot!

  • I can go on binges where I watch a ton of beauty videos on YouTube.  My latest find is ItsRoseRoma.

This is her video on the perfect beginner kit for getting into serious makeup application.

Let’s close this out with some wisdom from the amazing RuPaul.

Sights and Sounds #29

Lots to share!

Old clip of RuPaul on the Arsenio Hall Show. I love RuPaul, and I love even more that the message has not changed in all of these years!

During Britney’s Circus tour, videos played during costume changes, and this one using Marilyn Manson’s version of “Sweet Dreams” was super hot.

Amazing behind-the-scenes video of the Spring/Summer 2012 Alexander McQueen show.

Love this Brian Atwood video, inspired by some new color block heels.

I’m going to need to do multiple Sights & Sounds posts, I have a lot to catch up with.

Realness Report: Fashion Week, Kristen Stewart, Gaga

by Jamie Sanford on September 12, 2011

New feature! I have been sucked into the term “realness” from watching too many episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race, RuPaul’s Drag U, etc.

You can see the origin of talking about realness in terms of “passing” in this clip from Paris is Burning.

In this instance, realness I’m talking about is encapsulating a look or attitude from another person, culture, situation, etc.  It’s a broader definition, but it works for me and let’s go with it.

“Just out of the shower with a hangover” realness at the Alexander Wang Spring 2012 show at New York Fashion Week.

Kristen Stewart looks AMAZING in this month’s W Magazine, but as you can see from the picture, she is giving lots of Priscilla Presley realness.  Click here to check out the rest of the photos and an interview with Kristen.

Carnation realness from Lady Gaga.  Come on, look at that hat.  (In all seriousness though, how beautiful does Gaga look here? She looks fabulous with a pale lip and that blond hair, for about a week she looked just beautiful, without distracting from it with her fashion extremes.  I appreciate that part of Gaga too, but I really loved this look.)

Hook it up on Facebook with your suggestions!

29 WAYS TO STAY CREATIVE

I loved this video. Honoring your creativity is important!

RuPaul is wearing this dress that is sort of my dream “Vegas Wedding” dress, but I do not have those legs or body.  Damn drag queens looking way hotter than me.

Oh come on! That’s the cutest thing ever! Also, that baby cub needs a name.

Did I mention I like to dance? (You want to watch this.)

These are “Knock You Naked” Brownies.  The name and this picture have me sold, check out the recipe here on The Pioneer Woman.

100 Films in 2011: But I’m A Cheerleader

by Jamie Sanford on February 10, 2011

Hello again everyone – my clear obsession with RuPaul is unrelated to the fact that I like this movie.

Well, don’t get me wrong, I’m excited that Ru is in the movie (as an ex-gay), but I didn’t see this movie because of RuPaul.  That was just a bonus.

9. But I’m A Cheerleader (Not available to stream on Netflix Instant Watch)

Let’s start with the trailer, which is rated R.

But I’m A Cheerleader centers around Megan, played by Natasha Lyonne, a cheerleader that we find out doesn’t realize that she’s a lesbian.  Her friends and family bring in RuPaul for an intervention, and she’s off to True Directions, a camp to turn people straight.  We meet the other kids at the camp, but are intrigued by Graham, played by Clea Duvall.  The kids start going through their steps to heterosexuality and hilarity ensues – I won’t give it away because it’s funny and I’m not giving anything away beyond what’s in the trailer.

I will give away that Megan and Graham fall for each other, so it gets to be a sweet love story in addition to a comedy.

I can recommend But I’m A Cheerleader to anyone who likes romantic comedies – and this one has a great message stuck in there too, about being yourself even if it isn’t the most comfortable choice.

But I’m A Cheerleader is available on DVD from Amazon for $11.99.
