As a native Washingtonian, I suppose
it's only natural that I love Northern Exposure and Twin Peaks since
they were both filmed near my hometown. I think they'd be favorites
even if I didn't grow up here, though; I love that both of those
shows embrace both the mundane and the magical, allowing us to believe
that there is something beyond the veil. I love that they're about
communities filled with bizarre and intriguing characters.
The characters I identify with most on these shows are Maurice
Minnifield and Catherine Martell, both mature, bossy, money-hungry,
and obnoxious. It's always Maurice's tender moments that make me
cry the most, and Catherine's demandingly dominant and cruel moments
that THRILL me to the bone. I would love to find out that there's
a porn video of Catherine beating a humiliated and exposed Josie
Packard before overseeing a gang of ruffians to fuck her senseless.
I never thought I would become a fan of Star Trek, but after watching
the documentary, Trekkies, I was so inspired by the idealism and
uninhibited enthusiasm and imagination of Star Trek fans that I
wanted to watch the show. We picked up on Next Gen and I am totally
smitten. Data is by far my favorite character, and I would LOVE
to see Dr. Beverly Crusher and Counselor Troi make sweet lipstick
lesbian love to each other after grinding their cameltoes together
while wearing their tight shiny uniforms. My least favorite character
is Riker; he's such a bossy hypercritical arrogant prick! Unfortunately
I think I might hate him most out of a fear that I'm most similar
to him. Sigh.
I guess I'm an idealist at heart, and stories that describe communities
of people who defy stereotypes by creating some type of mildly-utopian
lifestyle operating off the grid away from the dullards in mainstream
society really appeal to me. In a way my little webwhore porn empire
is my own defiance and step away from what society says is right
and good, into what *I* believe is right and good and totally perfect
for me. We don't have to lead lives like everyone else's, and these
shows help remind me of that.
