KListen: Mark Ronson feat. Amy Winehouse – “Valerie”

After my obsession with the last KListen song, QueenS by The Satisfaction, there was only one place I could go. I love this song and actually sang it loud and proud on the way into the office today. In case you missed the title of the post, I was crooning along with Amy Winehouse to “Valerie”.

Let me say this before I say another thing, I knoooooow this wasn’t originally written about a woman by a woman. But once Amy sang the first note it became a lesbian song  for a lot of us… or at least for me.

The video is an interesting one. Though Amy was still alive she wasn’t on the video set. Unfortunately, it seemed like a precursor to her untimely demise. Instead, we get to enjoy a bevy of beauties lip-synching for their lives.

RIP Amy.

Take a look. Take a listen. What do you think? Continue reading

NLbutimacheerleader011As our countdown to the 16th annual Miami Gay and Lesbian  Film Festival continues, let’s all get out our tents because it’s time for camp.

But I’m a Cheerleader is the story of All American girl Megan Bloomfield, from Anytown, USA. She’s pretty, she’s popular, and she cheers in support of her football playing boyfriend. But there is something just not right about this girl. Why doesn’t she like having her face gnawed off by her BF during their make out sessions?  Why did she start eating tofu? Is that a Melissa Etheridge poster hanging in her room? OH NO, she must be A GAY. Continue reading
