I have started adding all the coolest people on livejournal. this is a big step for me. I have to move from my little fandom corner to that bigger corner over there. 

REQUESTED FAQ (this is a lie no one asks me anything): DOES SEVENPM ADD PEOPLE TO HER FLIST THAT SHE HAS EXCHANGED NO PERSONAL WORDS WITH? Answer: NO, BUT IF THEY COME ON OVER AND GIVE A SHOUT, I'LL ADD EM FASTER'N YOU CAN SAY "HEY, sevenpm,YOU'RE A TOOLBOX FOR NOT MENTIONING THIS EARLIER!" C'mon, I'm cool! I'm hip!

so naturally ole auntie sevenpm hasn't had much time to view and review the ghey due to getting an education. OR. like. so you'd think. We've been reading Edward II in English - Or, rather, GENDER TROUBLE IN SHAKESPEARE'S ENGLAND. I, unintentionally, signed up for a class balls deep in fangirls. Fantastic. Even the boys in it write fanfiction ( "I cried for WEEKS after reading Harry Potter 7, and then began my own book 8."). It's like entering the gay twilight zone every MWF from 1:55-2:50.

Edward II, basically, is about a big gay king with his big gay minions and they cheat on their wives in big, gay ways. No, I'm just kidding. Making out with your favorite minion in front of your wife the Queen isn't big and gay, it's just severely mislead. GET A ROOM, YOU TWO.  We watched a specific film adaptation of the play, too, to get a real FEEL for it. You know, what other directors have interpreted as the general THEME portrayed using the most historically accurate method possible. Example: The film opens with a discussion between two main characters, sitting on a bed. They share this bed with two other men. Who are having sex. Together. This scene is maybe five minutes long.

It's these subtle, fleeting additions included by the director, the true modern artist, that you really have to watch for, or they just pass you right by. (Provided you were looking in some other direction for about five minutes.)

Flaming interpretive dances, men in golden thongs with slithering boa constrictors, concussing yourself in favor of having sex with your wife...oh no, the gay hasn't left. It's been here the whole time, just waiting to explode into rainbows of glory. And here I was worrying about getting sexy back.

you know it's really kind of creepy how I call myself auntie so I think I might stop.
