GG Reaction Series! (Part Three) | Rory's Stars Hollow Party & Post-Danc...

Image
Here is Part 3 of my 'Gilmore Girls' reaction series! This was probably my favourite one to film - as I got to watch some really sweet, touching moments before jumping into one of the most intense scenes in the series. I talk about various relationships in ways I haven't in before, trying to understand Emily Gilmore, and shed more light on what makes the Rory/Richard relationship so unique. And then I dive into the post-dance fight, commenting on where Lorelai's anger comes from, and how Rory views it all.

Like I said, great to film - but an actual nightmare to edit. I don't know if you guys know this (you will when you watch the video, because I got so sick of editing this dang thing that I let the sloppy editing slide), but I have to sync up my reactions to the episode after I've filmed it. That could be the day after - or fifteen days later, when I honestly couldn't even tell you what I was watching. I have to find a better filming system - but this is …

27 May 2017 || Tonight, I sit in front of my laptop - writing the words that I have been terrified to officialise in any way. I know this isn't going to be shared today. I know that the people I know need to know first. But it doesn't come naturally to me. Using my actual vocal chords to verbalise words which have been floating in my brain for years is difficult, especially when I'm not sure how much it matters to the people when I'm not in a relationship. In some ways, it feels like I've known this feeling forever - and I don't really want to share it with the world. In others, I'm scared of blindsiding people by waiting. At the hardest of moments, I worry it's too early to come out - because what if the label doesn't fit me enough? Labels are great. They're a great way to get an immediate understanding of someone, before you get to know them. They act as a little reminder on your phone, one that reaches the forefront of yo…

#VOTEYES | On Marriage Equality in Australia and Respect

Image
This is your reminder to #VoteYes.

All links to various commentary, official information and helplines are in the video description.

Key Dates:

September 12: Mail out survey (could take up to two weeks to receive)

November 7: Due date to have the survey returned (preferred return date is 30 October so it is received on time)

November 15: Results announced

For online voters - people who live overseas or in remote areas, etc - there are no dates confirmed. The Australian Bureau of Statisitcs has admitted they are behind schedule in this area. (Hm, is this why it's ridiculous to spend $122m on a non-binding postal survey by an organisation which only has the power to collect and collate data? Or is the endless 'respectful debate'? I have no idea.)

SUMMARY

#VoteYes. Have the compassion and humanity to recognise that if you intend to vote no, and you have been called out for it - put yourself in the shoes of the people who want the same rights as you. People aren't discrimin…

On 'Gilmore Girls' Overarching Theme || A Response to 'Like Mother-Daughter, Daughter-Mother'

Image
I recorded a video version of this topic - which is a lot less concise, but jump into that if you're keen... now.



If you'd rather read, or even better - you want to hear me in multiple forums, here's your chance! Since this post is being written a few weeks after recording the video, there may be some more and improved content here. Anyway...

Even if you've never heard of 'Gilmore Girls', it's become a household name in its exploration of an 'unconventional' mother/daughter relationship - where friendship comes before parenting. It's drawn all kinds of reactions - but some of the most memorable ones are hearing about the excited mothers and daughters who are just happy to see their relationship reflected on television. Its memorability is not only in its exploration of a specific type of a relationship, but also the fact the show is not rooted in the stigmatisation of single mothers. There is no expectation a nuclear family must be on the cards …
