My darling husband made this movie for my birthday. It is the best gift ever:

Laughspin: The PsyCHO comedian has Tooken our hearts again (INTERVIEW)

Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 6.23.10 PM

Oh, Margaret Cho. Whether she’s psycho, or one bad mother, or charitably spreading her charity through charitable acts – like a little campaign you may have heard of, #BeRobin – the unstoppable comedian and actress never ceases to amaze, surprise, and blow audiences completely away.

And get this; she’s been doing stand-up since she was 14. Fourteen. What were you doing at fourteen? If you’re like Read More

Aroma Smells Like Bigotry

Aroma Spa & Sports

This is a really beautiful Korean spa in Los Angeles. Korean spas are wonderful, and they hold a special place in my heart. I have been going to the jijilbang since I was a little girl in Korea. You can have a bath and a scrub and a sauna and usually a meal and other spa treatments if you like, and aroma Read More

Michelle Shocked

Well, Michelle Shocked, I am actually totally shocked. What the hell?! It’s freaky to me, the whole business of going from a queer icon to someone who would actually say that God hates us. When the shock wore off, I found people were super angry but I just got scared. I think that as a queer person of color, I have been scared my entire Read More

Going Down

I went down on my bike, fairly badly, and I am unhurt, but it was so terrifying. I didn’t run into anybody.

I did a semi wheelie going uphill and all Read More

Swim

The hour that gives me the most difficulty is 2pm.

I am good in the mornings. The sunrise is ever hopeful, the strange way you can tell light is new, the way it comes at you, shy through the trees. Yes I love mornings, because it’s another chance, you get another stab at it, whatever it is. Nothing bad has occurred really in the early hours Read More

Chewbacca

chewbacca

I think about Chewbacca with a ferocity and intensity one would think that I actually had some kind of Wookie genealogy, because I think of him as family. I think of Wookies as myself and my own, as I am much hairier than anyone would know and I am actually fairly good at fixing things. The Wookies are the Star Wars galactic race that I’d Read More
