    I didn't notice before that it's the guy who wrote "The Weekend" who is the head writer but it makes sense now. I didn't like that film (but then I had very high expectations) but it had some good qualities. The mood that it conjured up, in particular.
    It really was an understated but beautifully written fifth episode.

    Is Richie's cancer prediction a bad omen for this relationship though? I get the feeling the director is trying to tell us something.

    Also, it's so true about the old art of "egg cleansing" (that's what they are called) I remember my mother doing it when we were children. Supposedly the science behind it is that you use the egg to cleanse the bad energy. I'm not saying a believe in it! I'm just telling you what I remember...


    The gay sex scene was so sexually graphic and yet no nudity. Odd but I loved it!

    The US government should really do something about Americans that go abroad to incite racism and genocide in other parts of the world.


    One of those three,Scott Lively, is already standing trial for Crimes against Humanity in US courts.

    Defiant Ugandan president signs tough anti-gay bill: http://news.yahoo.com/uganda-preside...JmMQR2dGlkAw--

    The bill he signed into law holds that repeat homosexuals should be jailed for life, outlaws the promotion of homosexuality and requires people to denounce gays.
    Gay men and women in Uganda face frequent harassment and threats of violence, and rights activists have reported cases of lesbians being subjected to "corrective" rapes.
    Corrective rapes?!?

    Corrective rape. When Campaign Against Homophobia did their last report on violence motivated by homophobia over here, there were incidents of "corrective" rapes anonymously reported to the researchers. Of course none of them ended up being reported to the police.

    On a more cheerful note, another good "Looking" episode. I really hope that the figures were good enough for HBO to continue it beyond the pilot season.

    I hope Scott Lively burns in hell along with all of his evangelical/Mormon/Christian thugs. They are partly responsible for what's happening in Uganda.

    Doesn't Uganda receive the most financial aid from the American government? Around 400+ million dollars in aid, a year!

    Can't the Obama administration do something about this? Do they even care?


    I still remember those courageous Ugandans that formed their own pride parade a few years ago.

    They even had a message of hope for LGBT Russians.

    and so it begins... Uganda tabloid outs "100 top homos"

    Both Uganda and Nigeria have passed discriminatory laws against their LGBTQ citizens.


    May god/light protect them. I have a very bad feeling about this.

    ^ Delighted she vetoed, obviously ... but the fact that it was voted for by a majority of state legislators means there's still a big, big problem in that state.

    BTW, I don't know if this was mentioned upthread, but Stephen Fry's documentary about homophoba, Out There, included an interview with a Ugandan woman who had been "correctively raped."

    Mind-boggling.

    Wow that's massive and not what you'd expect from a 'family friendly' company like Disney.

    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    I hear outside a million panicking birds, and know even out there comfort is done with; it has shattered even the stars, this creature at last come home to me.
