Simple global search and replace on the following should take care of it, right?
"Hello, I'm Jerri Blank and I'm a 46-year-old high school freshman. For 32 years I was a teenage runaway. I was a boozer, a user, and a loser. My friends were dealers, cons, and 18 karat pimps. But now I'm out of jail, picking up my life exactly where I left off. I'm back in high school, living at home, and discovering all sorts of things about my body. I'm finding out that though the faces have changed, the hassles are just the same." -- Jerri Blank
Visited The Heartland to see The Hotness That Is Nina X earlier today. One of the topics that came up?
Showtime’s The L Word debuts this Sunday
Sunday, Jan 18, 9 p.m., Star Gaze. The premiere of Showtime's new lesbian series, The L Word, 5419 N. Clark. (773) 561-7363. T-shirts, giveaways, drink and food specials, $1 pink pussy shots. Star Gaze, the only lesbian bar in Chicago showing The L Word.
Indeed, while the ladies from The L-Word may be as stylish, frisky and prone to slumming in cafes, and both shows offer glimpses into their respective close-knit social circles, the similarities really do end there. Executive produced by Ilene Chaiken and co-created by Chaiken, Kathy Greenberg, and Michele Abbot, The L-Word’s ensemble of nine gorgeous core characters stand to redefine lesbian iconography: there’s not a Birkenstock, mullet, vegetarian potluck or O’Donnelesque woman to be seen.
“It’s really funny and ironic because when Go Fish came out in 1994 everyone was like ‘not all lesbians are ugly, you know,’” notes Go Fish/L-Word pilot director Rose Troche. “And I think what will happen with this is that people will say ‘not all lesbians are beautiful and skinny and fabulous.’ Certainly we know that, but we have to start somewhere. If the show’s popular we will get more leeway [to show more diversity]. Not a potluck yet, but they have dinner parties!”
Guess it doesn't take place in Columbus, huh, Neo?
Wondering if I should brave the cold tomorrow and walk the two or so blocks to Star Gaze for the show.
Star Gaze, one of the few lesbian bars in the city that's not packed with 708's and 630's, is a comfortable lesbian bar located in the heart of Andersonville (aka "Girlstown"). StarGaze is owned by a fab Latina lesbian couple, Dusty and Mamie, who took over the bar a few years ago from Cafe Ashie's owners. They've done a great job with the place, making it into the City's best and most diverse lesbian bar, at least on the North Side.
I have never before seen Andersonville called "Girlstown," but maybe I don't get out enough.
Oh well. Might be able to scrape up enough cash to afford one pink pussy shot, which I can then nurse the rest of the evening. . .
