What's This Bitch Talking About? Becoming, Part 1

"Bottom line is, even if you see 'em coming, you're not ready 
for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it 
does. So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are 
gonna come. You can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that 
counts. That's when you find out who you are." -Whistler

What's This Bitch Talking About? Go Fish

Buffy is not the Slayer of discreet surveillance.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer endeavors to start conversations about privilege and slut-shaming. "Go Fish" is about as discreet as Buffy trying to protect the next possible victim of a gill-monster, but this is still a "fun" (kind of?) episode.

Due to the nature of my podcast (I watch, recap and review every episode 20 years after their original airdates), we are about to embark upon a punishing FOUR MONTH Buffy drought. Please vote in my Twitter poll to weigh in on what you'd like this bitch to talk about during those four long months.

It's been seven LOOOONG weeks without Buffy. I am so happy to be back! "I Only Have Eyes For You" is one of my top ten episodes.

Mixtress Rae is watching every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer exactly 20 years after its original airdate in the U.S.

Favorite Music Video Directors: Michel Gondry

I made a little YouTube playlist featuring my top ten music videos from one of my favorite music video directors, Michel Gondry. These are in chronological order and span the years 1993-2002. He also directed "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".

MixtressRae's Top Three:

* Hyperballad // Bjork
* Sugar Water // Cibo Matto
* Around the World // Daft Punk

For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with music videos. They combine two of my favorite things: music and, urm, videos. Just like any art format, they can depict anything, but the format of putting a visual to a song lends itself to more surreal imagery. You can tell a huge story in a short time while still keeping it vague. A music video doesn't have to make sense. Michel Gondry doesn't make sense. What's your favorite Michel Gondry music video? Here's a list of all the videos he has directed.

Mixtress Video: TT Purple Cupped Gemini Corset

I bought myself a pretty purple corset for Valentine's Day 'cause it was on sale. I didn't get to keep it, but loook how preeeeetty!
