RuPaul wins award
« on: July 21, 2014, 11:32:15 AM »
From http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/tv-critics-award-good-wife-719794

"A smattering of Emmy make-goods and perhaps a bit of prognosticating, winners of the 2014 Television Critics Association Awards run the gamut from the expected (True Detective and Orange Is the New Black) to complete surprises (RuPaul's Drag Race)."

"RuPaul's Drag Race nabbed a historic win in taking Outstanding Reality Series and beating fellow nominees like The Amazing Race and The Voice. Entering its seventh season on LOGO, this is only the second formal accolade RuPaul has received for the competition series. It took best reality series at the GLAAD Awards in 2010, shortly after its premiere. An elaborate face-off for drag queens, Drag Race has become something of a cultural phenomenon, even prompting an all-stars season for fan-favorite contestants."





I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Oh yes, this seems like just the sort of thing Punch would enjoy watching.
You sound like a professional who knows what he's talking about.  That's because you are.

He looks a lot better in that pic than years ago in that duet with Elton John. :P

Work it, Punch! Do your thing!
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

That mental image can only be described as a mixture of terrifying and impressive.

I guy in my High School class, built something like me, got into this sort of thing.  Based on his experience, I will have to pass.  His stage name is Tina Torch.  He is on YouTube and FaceBook. 

I hated gays with a passion when I was in High School.  Seeing the last video of Freddie Murcury changed something in me.  He looked so pitiful, and I thought then that nobody should die like that, regardless of their sin.  A couple years later I saw the movie "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert", which was an insight into the sad lives of these people.  Watching RuPauls's Drag Races with an open mind also gives an insight into the lives of these people.  While I do not agree with their lifestyle (most if not all are gay), they found a soft spot in my heart. Given most of the trash that is on TV these days, I consider RuPaul a class act. I have to say that I am genuinely happy that his program got an award.

Don't even get me started on Klaus Nomi.  Vamrat will hunt you down and kill you if you make me play Nomi's music for you . . . ;)

Punch posting something from a website called Hollywood Reporter? That was a bit unexpected.

If it restores my image any, I found it because the Drudge Report had it linked.

I know where you live.
I know that your cats will do anything for Fancy Feast.
I know you have a rickety set of stairs.

You have been warned.

You know that Greytard and Mewtard won't hurt their daddy.

Cats are fickle.  Enough fancy feast?

Pictures of Klaus Nomi are one of the few things that could tempt me to patricide.  One more picture and I will sell every thing of value I own.  My computer, every once of silver, I'll even sell my car (might be able to get $20) and get an entire pallet of fancy feat.  Then, after they trip you on the stairs, I will fall on my sword (specifically the saber you gave me) since I was the one who introduced you to him, and thus deserve to die an agonizing death by disembowelment for that infraction.






(I hope everyone takes these death threats as the inside joke they are meant as!  Specifically you Punch, as you also know where I live and I am quite certain that for a double quarter pounder with cheese and some fries, Mdog would be more than willing to tear my jugular out and eat the evidence.)
