BOOM! That's the sound of my mom hitting the ground after being hit with last week's cliff hanger. She's fine though, she's a strong, independent woman, capable of doing all her own stunts and recovering from that not-so-major plot twist.
First and foremost, you need to appreciate the majesty of the first minute of this episode. The intro was recorded and added to the beginning of this episode thanks to the magic of podcasting and post-production - just to give you a peak behind the curtain. But it was also recorded while Aidan walked home, and he is VERY out of breath because he can't not walk as fast as he can between point A and point B.
We dive back in this week with Justin Beiber's new tattoo(s?):
Is it still called a sleeve when you cover your torso in fresh ink, but your torso is roughly the same size as the average arm? #scrawny
One of my favourite things about Instagram is the comments on celebrity posts. Like for example... this quality feedback from Justin's tattoo post:
Both valid feedback and a poignant question. Do you think it's a shared account for Kendal and Kylie to throw shade at famous friends?
We also talk about how long it's been since we've gone to the movies and the importance of the Rotten Tomatoes rating system. Seriously, if it's not certified FRESH, I'm not really interested. PLUS - there's rotten and then there is ROTTEN.
We also dove butt-deep into the hilarious world of fictional horror movie gay power couples. Seems niche, but it's surprisingly mainstream.
Even Netflix has the Babadook in the LGBTQ movies section now.
Aidan explains Toronto's premier drag queen, Jada Shada Hudson, and her provocative performance style. She has a unique style and a DEDICATED fan base and lest we forget, a LIT social media feed. Take a break from work and take some time to go through that wonderful feed.
We also talk about the high stakes of Halloween. There's so much pressure to choose a great costume, and how your childhood Halloween costumes can be a clear gay-dar in retrospect.
