@1 - As a gay man who has known many gay men and has also slept with women, I must say... Each of those three sentences you've written is so far from the reality I've known, I have to wonder if you've ever met a gay guy before. Sorry, but liking men because they are masculine does not increase likelihood of liking women who are masculine. It just doesn't work that way.

LADYTRON.

Electroclash came and went so hard...
But man, I was in it deep for a good minute.
My hair has never had so much emotion.

Just gonna say to all who are referring to the LW as a lady:
There's nothing in the letter to indicate the gender of the LW here...
All we know is that the ex who left is a guy. But LW is not necessarily a she.
We've had gay marriage for a while now. And we all know men can be crazy too.
No need to use this as another place to reinforce stereotypes that are no good.

I totally second The Shining, Silence of the Lambs, and No Country for Old Men!!! Those books were pretty okaaaaay, but the films were standalone works of art.

Re: the bank ad - that's Conchita Wurst! She is an Austrian bearded drag queen and she just *won* EuroVision this year. The bank is telling you that their bank is for winners - no matter your color of the rainbow. And that is a lovely message.

"Calligraphic" is a beautiful word to describe sax sounds.
