No Sex For A Week = Lots Of Netflix & CRAVE

It’s rare not getting laid, but I haven’t had sex last week. Seen Max again kind of altered my slut mood. The good thing about it is that I had time to watch movies and shows.

Aside from Game of Thrones, I also watched:

BONDING

Bonding Saison 1 - AlloCiné

Bonding is a seven episodes (all of which are around 20 minutes) sex-comedy show about a top dominatrix that enlists her gay BFF as her assistant.

Having work in the sex industry myself (in another area tho) I can tell the twisted fantasies are realistic. It gets a little raunchy at times; while there is no nudity, there are some bodily fluids flung around.

It is also often laugh out loud hilarious, with a good ensemble cast, and is fairly respectful of the culture and people’s fetishes.

What a liberating delight!

 
This show is just something completely else. And I loved everything about it!

Gays Have Turn On Each Other Long Ago

There’s an Instagram account, believed to have been created by a gay Instagrammer to shame ‘Covidiots’ who have been flaunting lockdown rules during the pandemic.

The @gaysovercovid account, which was created by an anonymous user, sifts through the gay community’s Instagram posts to find and share people throwing maskless parties and huge gatherings while coronavirus cases continue to spiral.

Gay History & Culture Manifests in Pandemic Posts On gaysovercovid

You can read comments like “I love petty in all forms!” or “I’m just here for the drama” because of course! People with lots of free time love this shit.

We’re in the age of mess. People delight on that which they find deplorable. 

For months, anti-maskers and Karens have magnetised the attention of social media users. It is logical that gay men who flagrantly flaunt their privilege via their skin, their low body fat percentages, and their refusal to social distance, should enter the crosshairs. In a way, then, gaysovercovid is a logical, maybe even inevitable product of this cultural moment.

The account shared several images from Christmas parties that showed at least a dozen people packing inside their homes for the holiday. Some were seen enjoying meals while others were having a few drinks

I frankly cannot care less about #gaysovercovid or anti-maskers or Karens, because either you’re a good person or a shit one.

But shaming people won’t stop COVID-19 spreading.

What keeps disappointing me about gays is the way they hate each other.

Fox Propaganda Is Real

How President Biden Handles a Divided America Will Define His Legacy | TIME

You might have seen that brilliant Time magazine cover perfectly illustrating the chaos that Biden has inherited at the White House from Trump.

However, a Fox News presenter doesn’t understand satire… Well, to be honest, Fox people doesn’t understand anything that is not propaganda.

Those Fox people are desperate for material to pretend they’re mad about.

It’s quite obvious, intelligence and grace are not part of the requirements for a job at Fox. The cover is obviously not real… And I wish they weren’t either.

Larry King Has Died

Fly a pair of suspenders at half-mast because talk show icon and King of Suspenders, Larry King, died today in Los Angeles after he was hospitalised with coronavirus. Larry was 87.

Like him or not, Larry was an early defender of the LGBTQ community.

I remember when some vile homophobe on his CNN show from the fake-christian evangelical community would talk about how gays could be “changed”, Larry would ask them his signature question on the subject. He would ask: “If you think sexual orientation is a choice, when did you choose to be straight?”

It always got the ignorant assholes all flustered who thought they would go unchallenged. Rest in peace, Larry King.

Canadians Deserve BETTER

Trudeau stresses green tech in Governor General's speech from the throne - JWN EnergyWhile Canada’s political panorama is not as scandalous as the neighbours on the South, we also have our issues. And recently we probably had one of the most improper with the resignation of The governor general of Canada (the federal viceregal representative of the Canadian monarch) Julie Payette, following a scathing report into workplace harassment and bullying in her office.

Julie Payette is an engineer, scientist and former astronaut that became The governor general in 2017 thanks to Trudeau despite some previous similar allegations. For instance multiple former employees of the Montreal Science Center told the newspaper National Post they witnessed similarly abusive behaviour by Payette in her time at the institution.

Julie Payette wasn't adequately vetted for governor-general role, sources say - The Globe and Mail

Back in 2010, former prime minister Stephen Harper put together an ad hoc committee to advise on finding a new Governor General to replace Michaelle Jean. That committee ultimately gave us David Johnston, who performed admirably in the role.

This is why it’s mind-boggling that Justin Trudeau, upon getting into office, chose to disband this office. Instead, he personally selected Julie Payette to become the Governor General in 2017…  A mess!!!

With that in mind, here are some serious (and not so serious) candidates for Canada’s governor general:

The national icon: CELINE DION

Who better to represent our country and act as our formal head of state than the icon herself? She is adept at communicating important government messages in both English and French. We all know that Celine will show the best of Canada to important officials, and her flair for the dramatic (and amazing outfits) means there will never be a dull moment.

The royal pick: PRINCE HARRY

Since the governor general’s role says they have to be Canadian, so why not get the Queen’s grandson himself to do it? Back in the day, the governor general’s role in commonwealth countries was often filled by members of the royal family. Harry could finally do something of his life instead of wandering around the US manipulated by Meghan… Yeah maybe not a good idea.

The shooting star: CHRIS HATFIELD

Just because one astronaut didn’t work out doesn’t mean we can’t have another in Rideau Hall!

The former PM: KIM CAMPBELL

Canada’s first and only female prime minister has remained an outspoken figure in Canadian politics since her departure from the House of Commons, and remains well-respected by Trudeau and other officials in the current government, having been brought on to several advisory roles in recent years. The governor general’s office has long been a space for retired politicians to take up residence, and Campbell would make sense.

The more obvious political choice: ANNE MCLELLAN

Speaking of political retirees from Western Canada, many are pegging former Liberal cabinet minister Anne McLellan for the role. The former Edmonton MP was defeated in the 2006 federal election, but has enjoyed quite a distinguished career since leaving office.

The Canadian story: TAREQ HADHAD

The Syrian refugee and founder of Peace By Chocolate is at the centre of one of Canada’s most heartwarming stories. He definitely has the “fostering national pride” part of the job down. And there’s precedent, former governor general Michaelle Jean was also a refugee.

All of this blunder was avoidable, and I think it should be noted that academic pedigree and professional success do not mean one can treat poorly the people one works with and for.

Canadians deserve better!

GoT

Game of Thrones (TV Series 2011–2019) - IMDbI’m back to reality after 5 days and some hours watching the 8 seasons of Game of Thrones.

It truly was an experience my sleepless nights, although the ending was unsatisfying.

For years I heard about the series but it’s been years I learnt to live without a television ’cause I’m not the kind of human who spent his time sitting on a couch.

I was usually more active before the pandemic..  But since I’m on forced vacations, business are closed, and on top of all we have a curfew, there’s no much to do.

Anyhow, Game of Thrones was a fun experience overall despite some heavy-sadistic-gore-violent-scenes.

Most of the characters were great, so it kinda upsets me knowing that almost none of the actors got any of the many American award by their performances except for Peter Dinklage, whose also the only American among the actors.

It’s a total crime that Lena Headey on the role of Cersei Lannister never got an Emmy, or Golden Globe or whatever else is out there when she’s beyond SPECTACULAR on her role. One of the best actors of the show.

Along with Carice van Houten as Melisandre.

Seriously, the show was great for 7 season. But season 8, the final, was definitely not what I expected after 5ish days of fucked up sleeping hours.

Frankly, I watched 8 years in almost 6 days and most characters remained strong but some others got reduced to caricatures.

Some deaths were satisfying tho:

Long story short, fantastic show!
