Thicker Hemp

We went to Michael’s to buy some thicker hemp today.  The hemp that Erik “the Hippie” was using in his tutorial was much thicker and is what I wanted to buy but Michael’s didn’t have it.  They had the #20 and #48 but no thicker.  They actually had a thicker one but it wasn’t the same stuff and it was extremely itchy.  I’m not going to get an itchy cord to wrap around my neck and constantly be irritated from it.

The #20 is good for rings and for smaller projects but not very good for making necklaces.  I don’t know how the #48 is going to look yet so I’ll find out when I start working with it.

Chips bracelet keeps falling off of his wrist so I’m going to make him another one because I bought some barrel clasps that I’m going to put on his new one and my new one too.  I don’t mind using a pony bead as a clasp but if they are going to keep falling off then it’s not worth it.  I also wanted the barrel clasp for making a necklace because I don’t want extra hemp cord tickling the back of my neck.

I didn’t get any extra beads because I have plenty for now.  Also, I’m still a beginner so I don’t want to have all these extra craft supplies if I burn out on it you know what I mean?

So, off I go to remake our bracelets to find out if this new stuff is thick enough for a necklace.

Justin Timberlake Goes Gay For Pay

Justin Timberlake Will Play Gay for Upcoming TV Series – Source PopEater.com

I love Justin Timberlake and I was thrilled to read that he is going to be doing the voice of a gay character in the animated Family Guy spin-off The Cleveland Show. He will be playing Paul who will be the love interest of Terry.

Terry Kimple?  The guy with the mustache?  Seriously?  I never would have taken him for gay.  That surprises me and is hilarious at the same time.

I have mixed feelings about this because on one hand I think it’s awesome that he is going to play any role on a show that I watch but at the same time, a lot of straight people who act gay for a tv series or movie tend to overact the part because they or the director think that is how a typical gay person acts. And yes, sometimes they are spot on certain gay people but that’s not how all gay people act and it comes off as condescending to me sometimes.

When Will and Grace was on the air I didn’t know that Eric McCormack was actually Straight but I thought he portrayed the typical gay man perfect. He couldn’t be more perfect for the role of Will Truman. He wasn’t overly feminine in the show, although he had his moments but don’t we all?

It will be interesting to see how Justin plays a gay character in The Cleveland show when it airs. Either way, my opinion of him most likely won’t change because he is just so funny to me. I loved his SNL music video skit of D*** in a box, that was hilarious lol.

Oh, he’s not only playing Paul but he’s also playing a singing booger.  Rallo’s booger in fact.  That is hilarious and something I would’ve expected him to do.
