I'm here! I'm alive!
Yes, I've been watching Season Six, and yes, I've been getting into it. I don't have the free time this year that I had last year, which is why I haven't been recapping--sorry, I miss it too! My pick-for-the-win has been BenDeLaCreme from the beginning, and I'm still rooting hard for her, though I think we can all agree that this season is clever Bianca's to lose, and that if they spun off "Bianca Del Rio's School for Girls," we would all watch the shit out of that. I'm totally endeared by Joslyn (she's 100% my Miss Congeniality pick), I'm begrudgingly enjoying Adore more and more each week, and I swing back and forth hard on how much I like Courtney. I've liked Darienne from the start, and I recognize and sympathize with the phenomenon of hangry-shade.
And I love my Atlanta queen, Trinity K. Bonet. I only wanted one thing out of Season Six--for Atlanta to send a queen, and for that queen to make it past the Snatch Game--and Trinity made good! She's a great live performer (if you're in Atlanta, catch her Thursday nights at Burkhart's, among other places), and you all saw for yourselves how she slays a lip sync.
So anyway, I assembled a supercut of Trinity's time on RuPaul's Drag Race!
I've also been fantasy-casting Season Seven. My top pick from Atlanta will be a familiar name to loyal readers of this blog: the incomparable Evah Destruction. This time last year, I began writing about Evah as an unbiased local fan: we’d never spoken before; I didn’t know her age or boy-name or personal history; all I did know was how brilliant Evah was on-stage, every time I watched her perform. This year, though, my endorsement is totally biased: Evah has turned into a dear friend, and recently, we've also become video collaborateurs. She and I filmed her painting process for a hyperspeed paint video; here's what it takes to turn handsome Alex into gorgeous Evah.
Finally, here are some parting GIFs: Trinity's stone-cold reaction shots have been slaying me all season. Three of my favorites:
I don't know why this last one cracks me up so hard, but it's kind of perfect, right? (Party.)
