Blah blah blah yes I’ve been busy as balls but who cares when I got a new crush to report! The smokin’ hot hottie above is Las Vegas Aces player and newly-crowned WNBA champion Kelsey Plum flaunting both swagger and smolder at the Aces’ parade earlier this week. I may have missed the WNBA Playoffs this year (not entirely my fault–my cable package doesn’t have ESPN, which is usually fine any other time of the year), but I shall not overlook Kelsey from here on out!
Here’s more of Kelsey at the parade, tempting my lady parts as she flexes dem guns, along with her Aces teammates. Also, big congrats to the Aces for winning their first championship! And somewhere, the Raiders and Golden Knights sulk quietly upon knowing their teams weren’t the first to give Vegas their first championship.

It’s been eons since I’ve posted something on thee Kylie, and I couldn’t have picked a better day to do so than today. Happy 21st anniversary to this forever bop!
It’s HOT as Satan’s sphincter in the East Bay Area today, so to take my mind away from our current inferno, I shall gorge on Rebel ice cream, sit on a bag of frozen peas, and rewatch these Girl Power moments from the 1997 MTV VMAs (obligatory when the show mattered and had REAL stars/musicians around), which happened 25 years ago today!
If there was one single flaw from this performance, it’s that effing seated crowd that seemed not into it. Joyless fools! They couldn’t recognize the amazingness unfolding in front of them. The outfits of Kim and Left Eye that scream “QUEEN”, Da Brat entering as a badass warrior that would make the incels pop a vein, and Missy werkin’ it…I live!
If any of you miss genuine speeches with soul from entertainers, or if you want some eye balm from stumbling upon a clip from this year’s VMAs, this clip is all you need to watch. The youths in, erm, music today could never.
I’m not sure what’s more memorably wild: Busta and Martha presenting an award together, seeing Posh eek out a ultra-rare smile, or Ginger Spice going all-out campy drag with her getup. (Side note: I soooo wanted to dress like her for Halloween that year. I ended up dressing like a janky version of Sporty Spice instead. Janky Spice!) Also, no snark here, but the dedication to Princess Diana (who had perished just days before the show) was a sweet touch.
Courtesy of today’s birthday Heather queen (and should’ve been RPDR All Stars Season 4 winner) who has always tusk-us by surprise, Manila Luzon! I adore her!!
Bonus Hump Day music from Manila herself. This video!
I haven’t had any eye candy here in what feels like ages, so here are today’s birthday beings of pure hotness Charlize Theron and Sidney Crosby to make up for it! (I sadly couldn’t find a good full-body GIF of Sid, which is a shame because if you’ve seen his body-ody-ody and dat ass of his…And, yes, I be thirstin’ everyday so don’t be surprised.)
And if you’re wondering what Sid’s talking about in the last GIF…well, I’ll leave it up to your imagination.
It’s Pride Month and it’s also Throwback Thursday, so here’s an old-school clip of the amazing and hilarious Miss Swan going to a gay bar!
After coming across this disturbing headline (who knew that damn thing could sink any lower), I had to cleanse my eyes quick. And there’s no betta balm for battered eyes than 80s supermodel glamour (at least for me), courtesy of these classic Revlon ads!
No tired eyes, no basic-ness detected, no problem! Even their hair is serving it!

For this holiday weekend, let us all do the locomotion under raining glitter in honor of the Impossible Princess who’s had us spinning around with fever over the past 30+ years, today’s birthday queen Kylie Minogue!!!!! We should be so lucky to have this modern-day Aphrodite in our timeline, for her music that we can’t get out of our heads, showgirl style, and golden personality has us all wanting more more more.
Now get outta my way ’cause I wanna hit the dancefloor with these tunes.
Spotted outside Zebra Piercing & Tattoo in Walnut Creek. (The sign would’ve been perfection if they added Transphobia, though.)
What’s a chick to do on her week off from work and she wants to take a trip that’s not too far in distance and not too damaging on the wallet? Why, go to a place you haven’t been to in YEARS.
Though I drove by it once 14 years ago while doing a road trip along Highway 1, it’s been decades since I fully experienced Monterey. I’m not sure how much has changed since my last real visit there, I don’t know why it took me so long to visit the seaside town, and I never realized how near it is. (OK, kind of near.) Who knew that a two hour (and some minutes) drive from home leads you to this:
Stretches of pristine beaches with soothing waves crashing under the clear spring sky–you don’t get any more paradise than that! Though the weather was cool during my short stay, the cool was welcomed. I live in the East Bay and shit gets warm there during this time.
I was in Monterey for only a few days, and, naturally, I crammed everything I wanted to do in those few days. Also naturally, I took a buttload of pics, some of which you’ll see (captioned with my typical jibberish) after the jump!
