I AM YOUR QUEER CREATION! Haha.  I love love love you too, and as soon as I get some $$$$$ back in my pocket I’m coming out to one of the bars to see you because I misses you. <3

The "Fabulous creature" in the "throw some glitter on it" gif is Raja Gemini, winner of Rupaul's Drag race Season 3, if you care to know. That's one of her best moments.

Thank you!  I’ll add the info.  Tumblr’s interesting, because the contextless stuff has a sort of extra meaning for folks who know (it’s the pleasure of recognizing it, I think?  I feel like that sometimes) and yet when stuff has meaning to the folks who *don’t* know what the image is from, the meaning they may take from it can vary wildly from the authorial intent.  And yet, how were they to know?  In sum, this website is hell of postmodern and I’m sure some academic is going to come along and write something about it and get tenure, the bastards.

That started going somewhere totally different so I’m gonna wrap this up now.

I don’t use any Nyx products, I find them really overrated, actually. The only pencil product I use is NYC pencil eyeliner for my waterline. I’ve been using Makeup Forever eyeshadows from Sephora. Expensive ($20 each), but worth it.

Ugh, same.  I got a white and a green NYX pencil since everyone was talking about them, but no matter what I do they crease and smear.  I use the white immediately under my brow–it is good for that–but don’t have much use for it otherwise.  Makeup Forever has a really good reputation!  I bought an orange from them a while back and like it.  I’m mostly using Urban Decay now since I bought a zillion colors when they were all marked down to $6.  That and some MAC.  I feel like they do the job pretty well, but the lure of pretty colors is hard to resist sometimes.  It’s hard not to try other brands.

NARS gets a lot of attention but I’ve not been very happy with what I’ve tried from them, and their cream eyeshadow pencils wore off immediately when I tried them on my hand last night.  Never really set.  By contrast, the UD cream pencil stayed put even though it was right under my cuff.  Go figure.

I have to deal with unwanted advances a lot when I’m out in drag and, as an entertainer, I’m fairly obligated to be polite and accommodating. Being unabashedly inclined toward polyamory complicates things further. Thanks for sharing your story.

Oh wow I bet you do get advances–hell, I overheard a fellow in the vintage shop talking about using the dress he was buying for a drag performance, and I wanted to strike up a conversation just because wow, that’s really nifty.  Then I realized I actually had nothing to add to the conversation and I was eavesdropping anyway, which is Rude.  *cackle*  But yeah, I’m not surprised!  And of course there’s a whole subset of interactions people can choose to have in which both are on the market and looking to hook up, in which case the etiquette is probably completely different.

Oh hey I was meaning to ask you–you use Nyx eyeshadow pencils, right?  I thought you’d mentioned that before?  I’m having a hell of a time sharpening my white one, since my cheapie sharpener is a smidge too large, and damn if I’m going to randomly buy sharpeners until I find one that works, because $$.  It’s a silly question in a way, but do you have a brand recommendation by any chance?

Wow, I didn’t expect this to garner such a large, positive response! O_O Thanks everyone!

And I totally get what you mean about how people perceive you like that ~ I KNOW people think of me as relatively prudish (being a shy wallflower and all) and honestly that’s pretty far from the truth!

You know, this makes me wonder how many people this happens to…is the world full of super kinky yet vaguely unassuming people?

Someone should do a study…

This is so pretty. Love their newest album.

I loved their first album so fiercely that I was afraid to try any later ones.  (I know, I know.)  Are they still just as good?

I tried to share some of their work yesterday so friends could enjoy it and, you know, maybe buy the album or something, but WMG and UMG claim rights to it (*eyeroll*) and have made it unavailable in the US.  Talk about your backward thinking.

Have fun! Be safe! Sounds like there could be bears.

Bear threat is minimal, but there is a slight one, so I’ll be sure to watch out! (I was going to say it wasn’t a problem, but then I remembered the time my dad rescued me and my brother from a bear when we were little, so…..)

Just set them on fire. Then you have a reason to smile. :)

Excellent answers all! It is a huge pet peeve, and those are great suggestions for the future…

starsareneverfaraway replied to your post: How is David Bowie still so good?

The new album is amazing. I think it’s probably his best since Scary Monsters.

Total agreement. I was already thinking the album was awesome at the beginning, but then halfway through it just got *off the rails* good.

I’m particularly confused by this guy because he has a ‘Bob Marley’ tag right on his shirt.  It’s obvious who you’re trying to be, so what’s the point of doing blackface other than to see who you could offend?

At least you’re one of the good ones. :) *hugs*
