PR12 • Pre-Show ShenanigansBeat Meet The Contestants

The information has been out there for a week, so I've had some time to arrive at some irrational conclusions.  Let's take a look!

Because all PR contestants must be the exact same height.
And what's with all the wasted space up on top? 
They had time to photograph everyone individually,
but they couldn't be bothered to take one group pic?

Wait a minute.  Remember these?
Sing it with me.  Pleeeeease.  You know you want to I want you to.

♪  If it seems a little time is needed 
♫  Decisions to be made 
♪  Hey Heeeeeey Hey

... and these?

I still don't forgive you for season four.

Now all I can see is: 
I don't know, I'm still playing with it.
Maybe it needs some flying scissors, rulers, and mannequins?
Not to mention either Ra'mon, Valerie or Kate.
If Ra'mon is the one to get on s12, maybe I can
make one with flying toilets and bowling bags, eh?

I better stop this before I start getting inspired by the Yes video "Leave It."

Project Runway s12
Premiers 9p
Thursday, July 18

Alright, will there be a pre-show at 8p with ZRR?  Let me look on the schedule.  Hmmm ....

I See Nothing!

Nothing is scheduled for Thursday, July 18th, over on the site.  That will probably change soon, and I will update and edit as things progress.

11 July 2013, edited to add:  There WILL be a Road To The Runway at 8p E, with the first challenge episode airing at 9p, and again at 10:30p.

Folks, we know 15 of the 16 contestants.  And, we know the three hopefuls for the last slot, we just won't know exactly which person got it until July 18th.  Do the other two get thrown onto PR All Stars s3?  Do you think it will be Ra'mon, Valerie or Kate?  And will Alison, Shirin, Carol Hannah, Maya or Elena make it onto PRAS?

Do you have a favorite yet?  Over on mylifetime's fan favorite voting, Justin is way out in the lead, with Timothy, Ken, Miranda and Bradon following.  What do you think?

I don't know.  In the last few seasons, I've been impressed with someone's portfolio, only to see them make poor decisions early on and get eliminated quickly.  No need to get TOO invested until the show starts.

Okay, that was a line of bull.  I've got my favorites already.

I'm going back to singing along with The Human League.  Maybe they even need a keyboard player?

Ah, a better use of my time:  I'm going to fast and pray for better scripts for Glee this season.  They need it, eh?  Oh, and for contestants Angela and Sue.  They don't even seem to be getting their family and friends to vote for them as fan favorite yet.  (Their numbers are tragic.)  No need to get a complex, girls.  Just keep your head down, ass up and you'll be fine.

Exodus International Closes? • 20 June 2013

Did you see this article from CBS News?

Did you read this one from America blog?

Exodus International website:

I'm writing at 1:36a, Friday, 21 June 2013.  At this moment the Exodus website does not reflect their closing.  However, I saw on local (greater Orlando area) news that their building is barren, and there is a for sale sign up.  It turns out the headquarter was in the town I moved to last May, just a bit Northeast of Orlando.  Wow. I never knew till a couple of hours ago.  I mean, I knew it was in the greater Orlando area, but I didn't know it was in that specific town NE of Orlando.

I attended an Exodus International affiliated group in Tampa for all of 1993.  I attended another in St. Catharines & Toronto, Ontario, Canada for most of 1994 & 1995.  Looking back I can say that it was quite an experience.  The people I met were, for the most part, truly gay and truly wanting to follow Christ.  What really weighs on my heart is all of the religious right who think they have to keep the gays from the Kingdom of Heaven, that not only were being gay and being Christian mutually exclusive, but that they had to harass queers to the point of inspiring some to not pursue Christ.

John 13
33 Dear children, I will be with you only a little longer. And as I told the Jewish leaders, you will search for me, but you can’t come where I am going. 34 So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”   (NLT) (Bold emphasis mine.)

Matthew 5
43 “You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. 44 But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! 45 In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. 46 If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. 47 If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. 48 But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.  (NLT) (Bold emphasis mine.)

Now, don't you think RuPaul has it right with his mantra, "If you can't love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?"  I'm buying Ru long before I'm buying someone like this:

Luke 6
31 Do to others as you would like them to do to you.   (NLT)

... and how about the most obvious:

1 John 4
7 Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. 8 But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.  (NLT) (Bold emphasis mine.)

Love one another.  It's uncommon.  It's controversial.  It's biblical.  It's what Jesus tells Christians to do.  Don't hate on the queers so much that you inspire them to not turn to God.  Thou art not a bouncer at the pearly gates.  Trust me.

Or, let the Holy Spirit be the one to convict.  We are called to love, not to judge.

Thus endeth the theological rant for the day.

Maybe tomorrow they will announce the contestants for PR12?

Now I feel like Larry King talking sports after a big interview.

Moving? • 18 June 2013
It might be premature, but I believe I will be moving to a bigger place just one town away in a couple of weeks.  I'm concerned that the PR blogging will be affected.  I don't know what Internet set up I will have upon moving.  So, here's to hoping that nothing is missed and that I will be able to pre-blog and blog on time.

I've given up working on Vlogging until I am reasonably set up in the new place.  No, I haven't, but I think it is wise not to get too stressed over it.

I have a question.  Why does John Taffer have to refer to his Point Of Sale system as his POS system?  That just ain't right.  How would you like to SELL a POS system for your livelihood?

Ce n'est pas bon!

PR News!

Yesterday I learned that Alyssa Milano has been named the season three host of Project Runway All-Stars.  No, Judith Light, Tony Danza, Danny Pintauro and Katherine Helmond were not listed as guest judges.

I can almost guarantee that Ms. Milano will NOT be as robotic and monotone as her predecessors.

Have you voted for a past contestant to return and compete in season twelve of Project Runway?  Will the two that don't win get put on All-Stars?  Will they finally bring Maya back?  How about Carol Hannah?  Elena?  Allison?

So much to learn.  So much to hope for.

Too bad they can't take Calvin or Rico from the 2 seasons of The Fashion Show.
