Gay Kiss in True Blood

Last night during True Blood there was something that was probably very shocking to some viewers of the show.  Lafayette and his mothers male nurse Jesus shared a kiss in his car.  Then they went to Lafayette’s house and started to kiss before drug dealers bashed in all the windows of his brand new car that Eric bought for him as a gift.

At first I was giddy because I was happy for Lafayette for finally being able to have a boyfriend but then I started to think, that was a very risky thing for the show to do.  It’s one thing to have a gay character but then to have him flaunt it on screen might drive some of the viewers away.  I along with the entire gay community who actually watch the show were probably so thrilled to see this happen but I can just imagine all the clicking sounds of the remote control in all the anti-gay homes.

I’m sure the writers knew what they were getting into when they wrote that into the script and I applaud them for that.  However, many people out there are still very anti-gay and would probably ban watching the show henceforth.

I personally love that there is not only a gay character but he’s getting action on screen.  Good for him, good for True Blood, good for us who care to see that on our tv’s.  It shows that if straight people are bold enough to push their sexuality in our gay faces that we should be able to do the same thing and get away with it just as they have gotten away with it since the inception of television.

Unfortunately, when Jesus found out that Lafayette was a drug dealer who dealt not only Crystal Meth but also “V” (vampire blood), the date was over, he wanted to be driven back to Merlotte’s for his car so he can leave.  Oh well, it didn’t last very long.  Maybe Lafayette will get another love interest in the show in the future.

Sweatvac Ventilator Cap

Ok, I just found something on this thing that made me laugh lol.  First here is what the cap looks like:

Cool right?  It certainly looks cool.  The style is Diablo.  I think it’s really neat.  I was looking at the little paper that came with it that explains how it keeps you dry.  Here is what it says:

“How The SweatVac® System Works:  SweatVac® products are engineered and designed using a unique blend of the finest technical fabrics.  Our multi-layer technology channels vapor and moisture away from your skin and into the outer wicking layers, where they quickly evaporate.  Unlike other headwear, the material that touches your skin stays dry and comfortable – never soggy or clammy.”

Ok that’s neat.  I noticed a washing instructions tag on the inside of the cap and so I was looking at it to see what the fabric was made of and how to wash and dry it.  To my surprise I found this:

Machine Wash, Air Dry, No Bleach, No Drugs, Made in USA…  Wait what?  No Drugs?  You mean I can’t use Tide with Crystal Meth anymore?  Oh my Seacrest.  But that’s how I wash all my clothes.  Well except for all my swim wear which I use Tide with Pot via a Bong.  Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to use regular plain old tide instead. (I KID!)

Drugs lol that’s funny.  I mean, I’m not knocking their message because it’s a good message but I mean come on.  If I were relying on drugs to get me thin again I wouldn’t be riding a bicycle.  I would be riding the crystal meth train to skinnyville.  I wouldn’t have to do all this back-breaking hard work to try to get skinny if I was doing drugs people.
