    I saw a simulcast of the Bolshoi Ballet’s Nutcracker just before Christmas (part of a series put on by a movie theater chain called ”Ballet in Cinema” and ”Opera in Cinema” to show world class productions and draw new audiences) and though Chinese Tea was still semi-racist, it was not as bad as the Balanchine version. Arabian Coffee was surprisingly well done, with a male and female dancer doing a very lyrical pas de deux and both dressed in costumes that covered them and the choreography emphasized very connected and flowing adage movements by the pair…no ”harem dancing” or turbans. It was quite refreshing.

    Over drinks and dinner to celebrate a friend’s birthday last night with my fabulous grad student/scientist/alpha female cohort, out of post-holiday stories, new year’s resolutions, and current events discussion came a spectacularly funny and personal idea for celebrating the outgoing administration: we are going to shave/wax away the bush to mark the historical occasion of No [...]

    Olympians…world class athletes or fuck toys? Depends on if the athlete in question is male or female.  High-acheiving men are revered for their accomplishments, but the women athletes are still judged on their attractiveness and fuckability.  The Facebook group linked below states that Alicia Sacramone "sucks at gymnastics" (yeah, so why did she make the Olympic [...]
