If you’re not watching Sirens on Thursday nights at 10pm on USA, then you’re missing out. Not only is it one of the funniest shows out there right now — being that it’s co-created and executive produced by Denis Leary — but it’s also highly inclusive.
It centers on a team of Chicago EMTs, and focuses on the odd partnership of three men, Brian, who is the new guy, Johnny, a guy with a slow developing emotional range, and Hank, an African-American homosexual who defies all stereotypes the rest of popular media inflicts upon gay men. Their team is fleshed out in Cash, Voodoo, and Stats. And last night’s episode showed that Voodoo is asexual.
It took Brian from confusion and denail, to attempts to understand, and eventually wrapped it all around in a bow of acceptance. Brian went from the ideology that asexuals “just haven’t had proper sex,” to wanting to understand what asexual means — and failing — and finally all the way to realizing that sex isn’t what defines relationships, and that just being around Voodoo is enough for him.
Do yourselves a favor, and catch up on the episodes, and start tuning in Thursdays at 10.
this looks promising!!
THERE’S AN ASEXUAL CHARACTER ON A TV SHOW RIGHT NOW SPREAD THIS SHIT LIKE WILDFIRE
I haven’t seen it and doesn’t look like my kind of show, but maybe some of you all would be interested!
This is society for everything, if you are considered “conventionally attractive” than whatever you do it’s appealing. However if you are considered to be less attractive than whatever you do it’s wrong.
This deserves so many notes. I have heard all of the black quotes behind my back. It’s really demoralizing.
We Can’t Get Out Of The Bedroom Now.

I’m going to a massive family thing next week and knowing some of my family members who haven’t seen me in a while, I’m most likely going to get comments on my weight loss.
So here’s the quandary I find myself in its this:
When someone asks me “what I’ve been doing” do I give a noncommittal and vague statement about just watching what I eat, or do I go for the full honesty and blurt out “antidepressants!”?
The One Person that Mattered the Most
Based on the classic Mucha poster Zodiac, Grand Bazar and Nouvelles Galleries. Colored in Coral Painter. All of the type is names for the structures of the skull. Even the curling white decorative lines at the bottom are actually type (though it’s hard to see at this size). If all goes well, I’ll do posters for other Sherlock characters as well, each in the style of a classic art nouveau poster.
Prints are available here at my new redbubble account.
For those interested, I’m starting a secondary blog devoted to body image and the personal “weight loss journey” (even though that tired phrase annoys me) that I’m stumbling through at the moment.
Jack’s mom said to me that there’s only a few different types of men in the world. And at my age, I have met all of them.
If there’s anything else…
