If you have followed my blog, you will remember that my blog was reviewed not too long ago. That reviewer claimed that if Corky St. Claire (Waiting For Guffman) wrote a blog, it would be just like mine. I was shocked! I was offended! I immediately made changes to my blog. Along with that change, I changed my avatar to a more “holiday-ish” kitschy drag queen with cocktail. And then I was hit with another blow.
Now I know RuPaul (who doesn’t), Divine, and Lypsinka. I absolutely adore Charles Busch of Die, Mommy, Die! fame. I even own Girls Will Be Girls, yet I had no idea who Brini Maxwell is. I was ashamed! I was mortified! I was afraid they’d take away my Gay Card. (or at least the toaster oven they gave me when I came out of the closet!)
The most embarassing part is that Brini is so retro kitsch, being described as a cross between Martha Stewart and Donna Reed. If I was going to do drag on a regular basis, that’s how I’d want to look-retro 1950/60’s. (I collect 1960’s Kitschy bar and glassware) Just look at that hair! Those earings! Those cocktails! And the wallpaper screams 1960’s Eames Era Atomic Kitsch. This is someone I should have been following since I was12 ! I don’t know how I missed her!
