Cinemanic Monday: Approval neither desired nor required.

   Oh To Wong Foo. This movie brings me so much joy. It's fucking fabulous! This movie brought life to me. I watched this constantly when I was a kid. I still feel like I'm a gay man trapped in a woman's body. I just loved these "girls"! I don't think they could have casted this any better. Wesley Snipes, John Leguizamo and the wonderful and sadly late Patrick Swayze. They're amazing!!! 

Oh Chi-Chi. Always shaking things up. You were sentimental and cruel and I love you for it. 

Miss Vida. The epitome of class and never afraid to kick some ass.

Noxeema. So good!!! I love this character more and more every time I watch it.




They all kind of remind me of my late uncle Ricky. I was introduced to this movie by him. He introduced me to a lot of movie genres I hold dear today. He went through a dozen phases, drag being one of them. He was a very convincing woman. The first time I had my eyebrows tweezed was Ricky's doing. If he only knew the monster he had created, he probably would have snatched those Tweezers away from me before the inevitable near undoing of my eyebrows. I miss him every day. I really feel like he help sculpt the woman I am today.

These two parts remind of him the most. He laughed like that all of the time! God, he was funny. And we often spent hours and hours in his black lit room dancing to Lords of Acid.








I read on the Wiki page that this signs still stands!


Is there anything better than Chi Chi at the end? She looks incredible! I love that mole.

Coincidentally, I went to the Austin Pride Festival this past weekend and got to see Lady Bunny!!!
