Aces of course. Shame you had to get so bladdered after the N screwed with the schedule. :-P
But you weren't missing much, I probably would have enjoyed the show more if I had a drink in me. We better get some girl kissage next week.

Full of funny quotes and pics as per usual,
'and what on earth does Kyla have in that bag? Sounder?'
Hehehehe ah Sounder, ah Jenny....on that note, til next week!!

The Spaz:
Thanks so much for that! I looked it up and it seems there is a little disagreement as to the original text, so here is what they have written outside the Holocaust Memorial in D.C.:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out -
because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out -
because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out -
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak for me.

I have to admit, I rather like my present tense version of the final line, it seems more immediate and forceful.
Thanks again...

Katie -- Cincinnati

Katie From Cincinnati if you want to find it again the quote is actually a poem called First They Came by Martin Niemoller.

Katie the First -- thanks I like your name, too! That's why I put Katie from Cincinnati (no relation to John, btw, thank God)

Riese, it's very cool of you to respond to my nagging rants, and with such grace. I'll drop it where it is as more discussion would, I think, lead us in circles. And I think I'm afflicted with a cetain degree of contrarianitis that requires me to take the side of almost anyone who is alone... almost (Castro can suck it).
I keep thinking of this quote I heard and can't quite remember fully, b/c I only heard it once. But it was really cool, and all you need is the punchline, really. This guy is saying how 'they' came for these various groups and destroyed them, but he said nothing, because he was not one of them, and finally (something like) "now they are coming for me, and there is no one left to speak up for me."
Dang, how'd did I get from Spashly tonguing to this?

Katie -- Cincinnati (some things I know, MOST things I don't)

2007-08-20T23:13:00.000-07:00

What? I got confused for a minute cause there's another Katie here. Cool name by the way, Katie. =)

Girls, I'm gonna hold you guys to that--the whole recapping thing from the very beginning...even though Carly hasn't officially agreed yet. She WILL do it, right Riese? Don't toy with my feelings. =P



Katie[disclaimer: I still love that you're a fan, ...

2007-08-20T20:16:00.000-07:00

Katie

[disclaimer: I still love that you're a fan, and glad that you'll keep reading despite your offense. That being said, I gotta respond because it's just in my nature.]

OK. Here's the thing:

1. I make fun of everything. I make fun of everything and everyone, most of all myself. So me JKing about anything is barely indicative of me stating that it's either a good thing or a bad thing. It's just me making a joke.

2. 10-15% of college-aged students report some sort of sexual activity with a sibling. I've heard stories, even from friends.

Have you read Flowers in the Attic? JK. (Totes JK)

See, I can't stop. Maybe you're right. I make fun of gay people too, really.

Anyhow, I think the taboo comes from things like; if you grow up in the same home with someone, and you see them naked and you see them in diapers and you maybe even sleep in the same room and so on, usually for an attraction to develop from that is natural and perhaps normal .... but also generally unhealthy if it extends into adult development ... many writers have done well on the topic; Dorothy Allison, Michelle Tea, Miranda July, etc.

But I think that a good portion of the taboo develops from the fact that within the home, there is potential for abuse/molestation/etc. -- and that for an attraction to develop in that kind of environment is potentially troubling. Like anyone you live with or are tied to in a permanent way.

4. I'm certainly willing to be convinced that things can happen which overcome these boundaries -- I feel like I actually did recently read a story about a brother and sister who fell in love or something but I can't remember where it was.

Had I seen a genuine love story develop between Ashley and Kyla, I would not be JKing. If I'd seen them fall in love when reunited and then develop an incredible affection for one another, then I probably wouldn't judge for precisely the reasons that you state.

After all, they didn't grow up together, and these things happen. It happened to Maybey and George Michael.

5. Homosexuality is an orientation. It's a proclivity towards a particular sexual practice that enables attraction towards a specific gender, that gender being your own. 50% of the population, so to speak.

Incest is not an orientation.

Maybe it is -- but it seems an awfully limited orientation. I mean, being homosexual, you can choose from any number of partners. Incest the description of an act between two related persons. If your orientation is "incest," you're going to have a tough time in the dating world, methinks.

It would seem easier to just like, fall for someone who's not your blood relative than it would to fall for a different gender.


6. Anyhow the main point is that I was just JKing. I get what you're saying, but do you get what I'm saying?

2007-08-20T19:47:00.000-07:00

el n: I was unaware I was bringing any kink with the scarf, I just like the scarf. I guess it did prove to be useful in that the show was so godawful this week.

anon: Sorta describes my college years too. Except these kids are supposed to be in high school, which makes it even funnier.

riese: Maybe we need even MORE costume changes next time? Or a theme? Haha.



Hey Riese, thanks for the reply. You're right, the...

2007-08-20T19:30:00.000-07:00

Hey Riese, thanks for the reply. You're right, there was no slamming in the recap, I think I was a little bothered by the following in the comments:
"So they are not 100% related, which means they could still make out. JK! Totes JK."
Why just kidding? I'm totally not trying to be oversensitive, but if someone had said that about Ashley and Spencer's lesbian relationship, it would have been totally, totally unacceptable. But because it was about sisters, it seems like it is OK to marginalize them.
And I know that people say that incest has health risks, but they said that (and some still do) about homosexual activity not too long ago. And really, what kind of health risks could Ashley and her half-sister face? I know there is an increased risk of birth defects for immediate family members who breed, but no more than any two people who share the same negative recessive traits, regardless of the distance of their relation. And who says you can't practice safe incest sex?
Sorry, I'm not trying to be difficult, and I'm also not trying to be a proponent of incest. I just think that people too easily hit those who are universally despised, and, not feeling too far removed from such a position, I hate to see it. I came out almost five years ago, and even in these better times, there has been some awful stuff I've been through, so just think how it would be for others who have literally no traction in the national debate.

OK, I know that's long and I don't mean any offense. It's been a really sh***y couple of weeks and I'm really sensitive right now. But I still love your stuff and can't wait to read your next recap!
Much love...

Katie -- Cincinnati

2007-08-20T18:59:00.000-07:00

Kyla and Ash are half-sisters...

One Tree Hill used to be on the WB, now the CW. It's total guilty pleasure trash that takes itself too seriously - it's unintentionally hilarious and ridiculous, and this is why I love it. Oh, and two words: SOPHIA BUSH. Is all I'm saying.

Glad you like 'thank zeus' - being a non-believer in higher powers of any sort, I try to avoid using references to such...

Carlytron, LOVE your comment about how no one is shown drinking, they just show up drunk - amazing. And a beautiful thing - sort of describes my college years.

2007-08-20T14:24:00.000-07:00

El N: I'd also like to thank Carly for bringing the kink to my living room with that smokin' hot scarf.

*

Amanda: Yeah, I'm inclined towards Glen. It was just like, just remove one of those shirts, you know, that's all?

*

Katie:

Thanks! I do rule, don't I? Yeah, I rule. I feel like incest is different because of like, health risks? And I don't think there was anything in the recapping slamming their vibe, cos I didn't really even pay attention enough last season to know if they were actually related anyhow. Seriously at this point I don't care who makes out as long as someone does.


*

Edilma:

I couldn't hear her name either, nor could I find it on the N website! Eventually I looked on IMDB, but I seriously wrote the recap the first time around calling her "Kailin" and "Karlyn" alternatively. Then 'Karmen.' I don't know what's wrong with me. Well, I have some ideas.

Besos right back atcha.

2007-08-20T13:07:00.000-07:00

This episode sucked, thank God we have you :D

So the new lesbian name was Carmen? really? I was too distracted by her to hear her name hahahahah, she's cute, I hope her and Spencer make out :D

BESOS!

2007-08-20T01:01:00.000-07:00

OK, first of all, I love, love, love reading what you write. Your recaps of SoN are better than the show. I've been reading your blog for a while and am now addicted to it. In short, you rule.

And then I was reading your recap of ep. 2 and you were talking about Kyla and Ashley at the club and it slammed the incestuous vibes eminating from that scene. And it really bothered me. I've never done anything incestual, but I've also never done a guy, and society gives me a lot of s**t for that. So I created in my head these two girls who were sisters separated at birth and who met and fell in love, only to find out they were sisters and no one anywhere would offer them a shoulder. I actually lost sleep over this because I've never thought about it before, and I was all ready to write in and say, "Hey, we shouldn't be judging people who do stuff that doesn't hurt anyone else, no matter how weird or depraved it might seem." And then I re-read the recap and it wasn't there. Maybe it never was or maybe you pulled it, but then that's all one. But I thought I should at least get this crap off my chest because it's making me want to scream. SOOO, thanks, and keep up the great work!

2007-08-19T16:57:00.000-07:00

I think Glen's outfit deserves the award. It was short of disgusting. I agree that the episode was icky poo poo due to the lack of Spashley make-outs and the surplus of man kissing. Ugh.

2007-08-19T11:56:00.000-07:00

Win, I love you for recapping my favorite guilty pleasure, so awesome, so funny! Sounder in Kyla's bag = brilliant. And Carly, I think I love you for bringing the kink to these recaps with the tie-me-up striped thing!

2007-08-19T10:54:00.000-07:00

stef:

Obviously we couldn't keep just one outfit on while drunk, that's why we had to keep changing! [G-d, I'm funny. I am SO FUNNY.] No but actually; the base remained the same [me=blue tank top, carly=white t]. At intervals, I added Carly's black vest [I really want a vest but can't seem to find any that fit me and that are also probs free] and my striped hoodie, and Carly added a red vest and a scarf to her ensemble. See, that's the kind of resourcefulness the SON people could use.

Also, I live for costume changes.

*

katie:

I know right? I actually don't think I knew anyone who watched this show besides me when it first came on. When we get rich and our teevee show gets on the air and we become lesbians of leisure, we'll recap the first two seasons like WHOA. Carly, roger that.

*

anonymous:

I have heard so much about this Sugar Rush! Sometimes I wish Hey Paula was secretly kinky or something, but it doesn't seem right. I think the sexual tension between them is probably what'll keep us hooked as they do on all teevee shows --which's why the extraneous straight girls need to convert or get replaced ASAP with other lezzies for the girls to date!

*

2007-08-19T04:31:00.000-07:00

I've realised today that this show is the american version of Sugar Rush (which was cruelly taken away from us) only without the drugs, prison, sex and crime sprees (and a set of parents who go to swingers parties and use a sex swing - can't really see Hey Paula being up for that).

If it goes the same way as Sugar Rush there'll be sexual tension for ages until Ashley decides to be all grown up about it and they stop fucking because Ashley will always break poor Spencer's heart.

I hope it doesn't turn out like that. I hope Aiden dies.



Dude, I love your recaps! You guys should've done ...

2007-08-19T02:23:00.000-07:00

Dude, I love your recaps! You guys should've done this since the very beginning of the series cause y'all are freaking hilarious, and I'd like to know what your thoughts were on the episodes!

2007-08-19T00:06:00.000-07:00

i didn't read this cos i have never seen this show, but i looked at pictures. how many COSTUME changes happened here? seriously! when i'm drunk i'm lucky if i can keep ONE outfit on. wtf.

2007-08-18T22:58:00.000-07:00

Oh also spaz: Totes re Kyla's Mom. So they are not 100% related, which means they could still make out. JK! Totes JK.



anon: You are totally welcome. Yeah I thought the...

2007-08-18T22:56:00.000-07:00

anon: You are totally welcome. Yeah I thought the sexual tension between them was weird. Are they 100% related? I can't remember. I never saw One Tree Hill, but it sounds terrif. Also I've already incorporated "Thank Zeus" into my vocabulary.

*

c: You are so right. I had peanut butter today in three different contexts though. Personally.

*

spaz:

Har, Gentle Manatees. Ha ha.

Oh we have PhotoBooth on my macbook. That's how all these photos've been taken for all the recaps, except for when Layla did photos. Rocking the timer is way more expertise than we have now. I don't know maybe Carly could do it though because she knows best.

Yeah Aiden is not doing well in my book this season. Weirdo.

C-Tron:

Totes re: pants. I had MC Hammer Pants, obvs, several pairs. Obviously as the viewer in my home, I did notice your skinny jeans and felt you were quite hip. I think for you they are very skinny, Ryan is underestimating your powers.

I like crossover potential.

She does have a type. Type BADASS. That's like, Type B/A.

Dude Glen omg, waaa.

*

inga:

I am going to call 1-310-Spashley right now and give her a poke like on facebook, and then a big hug. It'll be like a real life hug, except not real, but I told her I'd call her before I go to bed.

2007-08-18T22:45:00.000-07:00

i know there were no kissing girls this time, what the hell? Ha! Riese though you always make me laugh when its been a long day so thank you for that! I would call 1-310-Spashley and tell Spencer Id give ehr a a hug. You two are totally HOT! LUVE the photos. You should drink more often during recaps!!!

2007-08-18T22:42:00.000-07:00

the spaz: I agree, Aiden needs a haircut. And we use PhotoBooth on Riese's MacBook, which is the greatest invention ever.
