'Evil Genius' just sliced a piece of my heart right out of my chest

Netflix. What a great documentary. Technically, I am both inspired and jealous. I wish the documentary I have been working on would make someone feel the way I did after I watched the final episode of 'Evil Genius' - I was literally in tears. What a major shit show. What a waste of a life of someone who had never done anything mean to anyone. Brian Wells was innocent from the start, but you only find out at the end. And it is heartbreaking.

There are strong stories about vulnerable beings like animals or kids and older people, the disabled and anyone who cannot stand up for themselves which hit a chord. And I feel that Brian Wells was one of those. Sure, his house looked like a right mess and he was obviously mentally challenged (at least according to the documentary's narrative 'cos I did not know him personally). But he was described warmly by his landlady at the beginning of the movie and he had cats whom he loved. Ok, he had a long list of prostitutes he visited (t…

Hot shoes give me a headache after a while...

They have a strange effect on me. I am both compelled to look at them and I end up feeling completely overwhelmed by their utter beauty.

Only two designers have that effect, however...Alexander McQueen and Dolce E Gabbana.

Here are some examples that make my head spin:

The fascist tendencies of Twitter - who complains and why you're thrown off the platform on occasion

Granted, it's the first time it has happened to me, but still, I did not take to it too kindly.

Here's what I received:

It appeared out of nowhere after I tweeted about my disagreement about the Eric Schneiderman's case. I found some like-minded people and some (the majority) who sided with Manning Barish and Selvaratnam. I don't know these ladies personally and I was not a fly on the wall during their physical dalliances with the ex-AG, but I have a right to express my opinion based on what I have read so far and so fucking what if it does not comply with the rest of the #metoo movement?

I support the movement as long as it conduct itself with integrity and honesty. I have no time for a mob type movement, however. And in the case of Aziz Ansari, Al Franken and Eric Schneiderman, the #metoo movement has greatly disappointed me. It does not speak on my behalf. I am not a feminist 'no matter what'. I do not despise men and wish they could all be caged in some bas…

Did Trump use Ronan Farrow to take down ex-AG Eric Schneiderman?

Donald Trump and Eric Schneiderman have had a tense relationship for a long time. Years.


A new story has broken out in the media about two women having been 'sexually victimized' by the ex Attorney General. Their stories date back to 2012-2013 when their lawyer, Peter J Gleason thought it would be a good idea to convey his clients' vicissitudes to Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen  back then. And this is where things become murky. What were Gleason's intentions to pass on this information to Cohen for Donald Trump? It does not sound like this man gives a fuck about the #metoo movement. According to this article, Peter Gleason swings 'right'. Sure, I have no evidence of Gleason's party affiliation as such, but I am 'deducing' it because of the photograph of him next to Sara Palin which features the caption 'Backstage with my old friend from Alaska, Sarah Palin.' No member of the Dem Party would describe Palin as a friend, surely? Here …

Eric Schneiderman is not a monster - he is just a very naughty boy

Before I went to bed last night, I read the article in the New Yorker where four women accuse Eric Schneiderman (the now ex-Attorney General of NY) of violence. I was disappointed to find out that he resigned a few hours after the news broke, but his reasons made sense. "In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me. “While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time."


To me, the New Yorker piece screamed of BDSM used on people who weren't that familiar with it or its power dynamics. This was no 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' (a movie that's usually ridiculed by the BDSM community for being soccer mums' pap). It stands to reason that people without true insights or experience into this subculture would label these practices as 'violence against women'. 

One could argue tha…
