I highly recommend...

Okay, so I was just bumming around YouTube a bit to find some music. Just something to have in the background while I work - even though I almost always return to one of my old favorites, I DO also find something new and great once in a while. ANYWAY, I actually discovered a great BBC series one time, when I was just "YouTube bumming", and I thought I'd share my found treasure with you. That's just the sweet kind of GayGirl I am. ;o)

I was looking at some "best kisses" compilation videos (oh yes, t'was the lesbian kind), when I saw a clip I didn't recognize. And that doesn't happen often, since Wifey and I buy pretty much everything remotely decent looking. This one, however, we'd missed and (Thank the Goddess!), the beautiful soul who made the compilation, also included the titles it had been made from. That made it very easy to single out the new wonder: "Mistresses".

Checked it out real quick, and people were impressed and happy with it, so I bought it immediately and never looked back. In any case, here is a compilation video made by someone else, and only containing clips from "Mistresses".

Oh, and FYI, there are more (others, longer and hotter) scenes in the series, so this is merely a teaser. Amazon has it here.

Feel like a good laugh?

Okay, I know this is hardly anything new, but every couple of months, I re-discover it and have a good laugh. This time, I figured I should share it with you all:

Of course, it's something by The Ellen 'cause she can ALWAYS make me laugh.

When I fell across good ol' Gladys in the above clip, I was actually looking for the first scene I ever remember seeing Ellen in. I remember the exact moment, since I nearly peed my pants and felt an instant connection with this fabulous, goofy, sweet and funny person.

Anyway, I'll get back to you with that when I find it. :o)

QAF Mama and Mrs. Madrigal both go gay

OH... MY... GOD!!!

So, as always, I make sure to spend my Friday reading the latest installment of's "Best.Lesbian.Week.Ever", and then on page three there's a story on upcoming movie called "Hannah Free" starring Sharon Gless as a lesbian!

And I LOVE Sharon Gless... though the movie sounds like a pretty sad and tough lovestory, it's in a "The Notebook"-sorta way, and I ADORE "The Notebook" (makes me cry every single time).

Anyway, I'm all excited about this fantastic woman from "Cagney and Lacey" and "Queer as Folk"-fame playing a lesbian, in a lovestory type deal, when I get to page six and now it's Olympia Dukakis playing a lesbian in the upcoming movie "Cloudburst", which is a roadtrip type movie along the line of "Thelma and Louise"... Could you die?! I am SO excited by this... Mrs. Madrigal (from Armistead Maupin's "Tales of the City", in you're uninitiated) will play a lesbian.

Oh, and her lover of 30 years will be the brilliant Irish actress Brenda Fricker.

I have really high hopes for both of these movies, and simply relish the idea of having movies with lesbian lovestories that don't revolve solely around 20-something girls. I'm a 20-something girl, but I want movies portraying what I'll have with my Wifey 30 years from now - as well as portraits of our lives now, of course. I'm not giving up on that. ;o)
