Air Guitars and Rubber Boots
Maybe the gay community should think up some new exciting competitions... Gay Games and Eurogames are fine, but how about some fun championships like Dildo Throwing World Cup, Gaydar Contest, Outing Marathon etc etc?! Start practicing boys and babez, I'm sure it's soon to come...

L Pulp - Bad Lesbians in Bad Stories

gay and lesbian music
but today just a link for you: as a musician I really appreciate the Queer Music Heritage website. This guy has put a lot of work and probably years of research into this site! Preserving gay and lesbian history just becoz it has to be done and out of passion and personal beliefs has become rare in these fast paced times..so kudos to JD Doyle, and to say it in slightly modified ABBA words: thank you for the queer music JD!!
Be sure to check out this mp3: Here come the leaping Lesbians! Today it might seem hilarious, but back then in 77 any lez song was a revolution. I heard the Lesbian Concentrate LP for the first time in the early 80s - and although I was ecstatic about an all lesbian record, I was a bit confused about the song title Leaping Lesbians... frogs leap, bunnies leap. and as a young dyke I did a lot of unusual things...but leap? So, funny then and funnier now - and at least another L-word alliteration for the record.

Bears come and bears go
icebear Knut, everbody's favorite animal at the moment, was born and another favorite of the Berliners panda bear Yan Yan suddenly died shortly after. Yan Yan (22 yrs old) was here for 11 years –meant to be the mate of male panda Bao Bao, but actually they had no interest in each other and lived quite separately all the time. now Bao Bao is the only panda bear left in Germany!
Folks here and even around the world are Knut-crazy (me too, he is soooo cute and cuddly!!), and visitors line up for hours just to get a glimpse of him. If you can't come you can see the pics and videos at the Knut blog. But as Knut dominates the national news and magazines and TV shows let's take the time to say bye-bye to Yan Yan. Brought all the way to Berlin with the sole purpose to make Panda babies - or at least one! - she obviously just didn't give a damn but led her lazy Zoo life as an independent Panda lady, more interested in snoozing, eating and watching the strange humans than in the joys of motherhood. Here's a picture I took of her last Spring
Seeing that, I'm sure she will rest in Peace!

Drag-Trash de Luxe
So now finally: the SqueezeBOX band (Berlin edition!).
I guess they are one of the most unusual bands around. Jutta, Mr Wonke and Andrea are the cool dykes on guitar, drums and bass. Then a slim new-wavy kind of guy on the other guitar (sorry, I forgot your name, but you're extremely cool nonetheless!). And finally the leading ladies Gloria Viagra & Sherry Vine (who flew in from New York). Imagine two drag queens (with the most amazing long legs!) rocking the house with their wild repertoire from Pink to ACDC ... they are charming and rude at the same time, need a drink after every song and are sometimes so out of tune, but that really doesn't matter - it's all party party party and even gets the expensive handbags and business suits jumping up and down and screaming the lyrics.
Oh and check out Gloria's website - she has the cutest flash intro I've ever seen.

Even if you don't know what a Carniceria could be, Señora Mari Carmen's sign helps you figure it out. The sign actually caught my eye as it is very unusual in Spain (and I guess in other countries too) for a woman to own a butchery. However, when I went in and saw this very large older lady with very strong arms and very big hands chopping steaks with a ferocious expression, I knew she was born to be a butcher!

Lily Tomlin 's L-Words
Some of my favourite quotes in the category funny and wise at the same time are by Lily Tomlin, and as I just rediscovered a Lily quote collection I had bookmarked, I have the urge to share them.
So here are some of Lily's L-Words (L as in life, laugh, looney, lily-speak):
- Why is it that when we talk to God we're said to be praying, but when God talks to us we're schizophrenic?
- Sometimes I worry about being a success in a mediocre world.
- The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat.
- Reality is the leading cause of stress among those in touch with it.
- I've always wanted to be somebody, but I see now I should have been more specific.
- If you read a lot of books you are considered well read. But if you watch a lot of TV, you're not considered well viewed.
- Why isn't there a special name for the tops of your feet?
- Man invented language to satisfy his deep need to complain.

Beware of the Lesbian Callgirl Clones
My advice ladies: even if you love femmes and you're desperate: don't fall for the clones - my untarnished gaydar tells me they know zilch about the joys of true all-girl-action! You can get the real thing by contacting Laura, just send her a mail. You could of course just go to a club or party and chat up the attractive girl next to you at the bar, might be the beginning of a passionate long-distance relationship - it has happened before!

Scared of Santa
One of my favourite sites at this time of the year is the Scared of Santa Photo Gallery
It proves that from a kid's point of view that fat old man, the total stranger who apparantly knows if you've been good or bad is a frightening figure! I remember sitting on his lap for the first (and last) time in some department store... he smelt really bad (deoderants failed in those days when you were wearing a thick padded red suit) and had a terrifying deep voice, I was scared to death! My mother then decided to destroy the myth and told me the whole truth about who really brought my presents. I was so happy that it was Mummy and that the horrid fat man wouldn't be invading our house. I still wondered for many years though how my mother managed to get down our chimney....

The Lesbian Google
Surrey school board settles with lesbian mothers
Lesbian mums win fight for more respect
Lipstick Lesbian Take Over!
Marketplace finds lesbians an attractive, but elusive, niche
Angelina Jolie and her former lesbian lover visited dominatrix
I've received 25 news in only 2 days! I also checked out German Google News for the Word "Lesben" and even that produced 187 headlines for the last two weeks. "Schwul" (German for gay) produced 319 news and "homosexuell" another 56...
Welcome to the L-News - we've been discovered by the media and unlike (not so) many years ago, it's not all about scandals, murder and deviated sex in the closet anymore. I remember when I was a kid in the 70s the first thing I ever read about dykes in a newspaper was a series in the German yellow press newspaper "Bild" called "The crimes of the lesbian women"... It was horrorfying, but obviously it didn't keep me away from the girls!

The fear of flying revisited
My friend had a bottle of water with her and actually had to take a sip in front of airport security. I'm sure a terrorist who intends to blow himself up on a plane wouldn't mind drinking whatever he has in that bottle, so what's the point? US and UK airlines of course don't allow you to take any drinks with you, but according to the Transportation Security Administration Website there is an exception: You are allowed to take "Baby formula and breast milk if a baby or small child is traveling;" Thank God for that - the idea of young mummys having to squeeze their breasts until all the breast milk is out is even too absurd for the Bush-Blair-Fear-Alliance. It wouldn't surprise me though if you would have to try the breast milk in front of security too.... after all Mum's milk could be some deadly formula hidden in a silicone boob.

Apple Lebanon Mel Gibson
Dear new visitor, I'm sorry but you are part of my experiment, and as you came in search of some information on either of the terms above I might add: I use an Apple Macintosh and have done so ever since the second one was on the market. I feel for all the innocent non-fighting people in the Lebanon who surely do not want war or violence but would really love to live a peaceful life and see their kids grow up happy and without fear. And Mr Mel Gibson already frightened the hell out of me with his horrible Jesus movie - which being a thought through project and probably not something he spat out while drunk is more disturbing. Finally a cool site to find interesting blogs with different views on the Middle East and from the Middle East is this Dubai blog.
If you weren't looking for a Mac but actually for an apple as in fruit check out All About Apples.
And finally, if you were looking up Mel Gibson - well why don't you go outside, get some fresh air, think of something wonderful, plant a tree, donate to a good cause or just hug somebody. That won't be a waste of time! Thank you for being part of my how-many-hits-will-I-get-experiment and have a lovely day...

Lesbians and Wannabe Lesbians in the News
"Eva Longoria thinks it would be great to introduce a lesbian storyline into Desperate Housewives.
Eva told Playboy magazine that she thought it would be fun if Nicollette Sheridan and Marcia Cross’s characters had an affair during the third series of the show - or she’d be happy for her character, Gabrielle to have an affair with Nicollette’s Edie instead."
Nice idea,they should all try it out and then in 2007 rename the series to "Desperate Lesbians"... a suburb version of the L-Word should be fun!
And back to the real life: San Diego’s new fire chief Tracy Jarman is openly lesbian. She says that she's not out to be a role model, but sorry sister: this is such a satisfaction for all the dykes who said: "I wanna join the fire brigade" when they were kids and whose moms shook their heads and told them that that was impossible and only for boys (and then called the family shrink to ask what they should do with their difficult daughter!)
Come on baby light our fire!

Still Football Crazy in Berlin
- German chancellor Angela -Angie - Merkel: the distinguished way of really hitting it off but not allowed to show too much down to earth enthusiasm. At least the match triggers a kind of smile in her usually hound-dog-serious face.
- The team: in lack of cars and honking horns they run around the field like lost rabbits, hugging each other and waving their shirts - after over 2 hours of chasing the ball it's amazing they can still walk anyway.
- Soccer moms and friends at my place: cheering and having a ball (what a pun!). The ultimate proof that football somehow makes you unashamed and lets you forget that you are usually a cool stylish person: nothing else can explain why intelligent women would sit around wearing silly cardboard crowns in the colors of the german flag!!! And now I'm putting this embarrassing moment online- my friends will just love me for it!
Football's truely coming home...sigh!

Condy might be mad but not stupid
I've read some comments in various blogs stating that the notion of Condy and Dubya hitting the sack is just too scary. Above all it's totally bizarre and the more you think about it the more obnoxious phantasies it spins off. That's why I won't go there and just leave it to your imagination as to what kinky role-playing sex and war games these two would come up with....
For me, Condy alone is scary enough. That woman gives me the creeps and if you look closely you will see that she is one hell of a mad lady with an evil look. Maybe she started out with a lot of ideals and definitely a lot of chuzpe, but she turned into a mean angry power-obsessed bitch along the way. Watch the video and you'll see what I mean. Her official White House photos are of course all friendly - your smiling Secretary of State, a trustworthy WOC bound to save the world - but many snapshots have caught her off guard, showing her true colors - and that's really scary!

Berlin is full of art, everywhere, anytime. While 1000s were watching football on the big screens only 5 minutes away, this wonderful public photography exhibition in front of the Potsdamer Platz S-Bahn station was deserted and very peaceful in a kind of urban way....
World Cup Grannies in Style
Fans at the Brandenburger Gate
For some reason this World Cup has turned people into football enthusiasts who probably never even cared before. Maybe it's the sun and fun atmosphere and the gathering of (abnormally) happy people from around the globe - or maybe just the aspiration for a united world without aggression in these wild times. Or maybe some really clever marketing people here have prepared this so well with all the TV ads and songs and general hype that we've all been manipulated into suddenly getting excited about all these guys running after the ball. When I saw these two women today (in the photo below) I knew this World-Cup-Mania had reached even the most unlikely group of people: when elderly ladies who probably usually play Bridge on Sundays, join the cheering crowds and have painted the German flag on their forehead, you know things aren't the same anymore.
Notice the artfully painted wave flag - these ladies are fans with style
