do you ever keep tabs open thinking “eh i’ll get to that later” and then five weeks pass and you still haven’t fucking done anything with it
and then Chrome crashes and the entire neighborhood can hear me screaming…

From The Content Lab
What I’m saying is that the things that make drag drag are the very things that make the Internet the Internet. Take the idea of “mash-ups.” That’s an Internet thing. Isn’t it also fundamental to drag? The idea of picking and choosing different styles, tastes, fabrics, and whatever-else-is-out-there and repackaging it into something new?
Verging on parody, RuPaul repeats the same phrases show after show. Those sound bites become hashtags on Twitter and get plastered to user-generated images all over the web. Then you’ve got the animated .gif’s that capture hilarious moments in the show popping up everywhere.
All of these things show a level of self-awareness that is both extremely high-brow and extremely low-brow. It’s like Drag Race is perfectly attuned to the fact that it’s just a show, and it’s playing with that medium and bringing the audience inside the joke so we can all enjoy it as insiders. That playfulness seems very drag to me — it’s all performance. Everything happens to plug the performance. Toget the message out there. Just like the Internet.
The Minnesota Senate passed marriage equality today! By a margin of 37-30, the senate approved the measure, which was approved by the house on Friday. It will now go to Governor Dayton, who has pledged to sign it.
