JOSS ON VERONICA MARS WEDS!




BIG NEWS: JOSS WHEDON GUEST STARS ON VERONICA MARS, WEDS NOV. 9th, 2005 9pm *UPN*

From the beautiful insiders over at tvguide.com: Think of the trend as "once more, with feeling." This TV season Buffy the Vampire Slayer alums are proving there's more to life than slaying vamps. Here, their old boss, creator Joss Whedon, weighs in on his old gang's brand-new gigs.
Joss Whedon Cheers on Buffy Alumni

He's *mostly* right about Bones, it is NOT Angel at the FBI, though it's scary enough to almost be. After being annoyed by the pilot of Bones, I'm now willing to conceed that the show is WELL WORTH watching. I didn't dig the female lead at first, but the chemistry is good it's just really quirky.

Joss called Veronica Mars, "the best show ever".
Season 1 of Veronica Mars is excellent, the pilot is one of the best things I've ever seen (cried like a baby)...

Lost: Veronica Mars?

"I wish that the juggernaut that is 'Lost' wasn't our direct competition," says "Mars" creator Rob Thomas. "The flip side of that is UPN gave us their number-one time slot [after 'America's Next Top Model']. I just pray that the people with the TiVOs watch us and tape the other show, because we need it.

"I've got friends who write for 'Lost,' and I say [to them], 'You don't have to suck much, just suck enough to lose two million viewers.'"

Thomas' friends are writing partners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. Regarding Thomas' comments, Horowitz replies, "Eddy and I would be happy to respond. We love Rob. We LOVE 'Veronica Mars.' So we decided to run the 'just suck enough' idea past our boss, [executive producer] Damon Lindelof. He responded with what we think is a fair counter proposal. We will ship two million 'Lost' viewers over to 'Veronica Mars' ASAP. But on one condition ... Rob must rename the show 'Lost: Veronica Mars.' It's time to franchise up, bbby."

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

No Apologies for Queer White Tears - 2016 BlaQOUT Keynote

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
