Rupauls Drag Race Season 8 episode 8 Book Looks and Autobiographical stroll down the runway.

I haven't watched Untucked yet because I watch it with Alvaro and that means I have to wait but I also want to get this review out for you guys so Im going to write it without the Untucked. Were going to write the review backwards today because I feel like a BIG THING just sorta slid under the radar and its something Ive been asking Ru since season 2 which is WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE SONGS SUNG BY MEN?!?!? Finally it happened, aptly with Sylvester… BIG SHOES TO FILL….. This is a BIG THING because basically now were saying FISHY ISNT THAT IMPORTANT because were now segueing into FIERCE IS FIERCE AND WE DONT CARE ABOUT THE GENITALS SO MUCH. I mean YES, it will of course remain DRAG but I feel this really opens a lot of creative doors while simultaneously letting basic fishy queens know that their concepts might be dated and and in need of some remodeling. I mean could you imagine that first queen who got chopped pulling off Sylvester???… NO WAY… and you know shed complain and say it isn't even a woman or some tired third world oppressive bullshit that backs up her tired third world oppressive drag. The final two were Derrick Barry and Bob THE PERSON THAT IF HE DIDNT SAY DRAG QUEEN IN HIS NAME YOUD NEVER THINK HE ACTUALLY WAS ONE. Bob did an OK job, you know I'm SOUR on her so Id be hard pressed to say anything nice despite the fact she honestly is talented. Her performance was acceptable to a sourpuss so that means it was probably pretty good, not up to Sylvester standards in my book though, and there was A LOT of Dida Ritz going on there. but it was certainly a better performance than that poor cracker Derrick Barry. Im sure Derrick knew she was going home this episode so Im assuming thats why she TRIED IT with Naomi. She couldn't do it to Kimchi because that would be picking on a chunky robot with a lisp. (Kimchi on the Runway) She couldn't try it with Bob because shed just get shut down, and she couldn't try it who Chi-Chi because its unadvisable as a perfectly privileged white guy to pick on a poor black person who is much much smarter than you despite not having your opportunities and is much more talented... so she went for Naomi.. the other white girl. What Naomi said was completely true about how she, Kimchi, Chi-chi, Bob all have created something and offer that as something to behold yet derrick IMMITATES a PRE EXISTING PERSON and therefore offers... NOT MUCH. It was so interesting that Derrick JUST DIDNT GET IT. Derrick thinks he really is being somebody by BEING SOMEONE ELSE?!?!? I mean we are all amalgams of people and experiences we have observed but Derrick is a SINGULAR SPECIFIC REPETITION, not a kaleidescope of concepts! ISNT THAT FASCINATING?! Its like BETA-ism in its PURIST FORM. Thank god for these people they keep us all rich! If you go further into it the person he chooses to be, when he thinks he's being something, has no personality themselves?!?! He compared himself to Chad Michaels but CHER is A VERY different personality than Britney Spears?! Cher is a COMPLEX PERSON, Britney is a Cocker Spaniel just STARRING and waiting for you to tell it what to do?! It was all very fascinating to me. I imagine Derrick Barry has never been alone, or if he was it was "with Britney". He HAS to be the kind of person who just is ALWAYS dating someone because why wouldn't he be? How could he possibly be alone, without someone else to put himself into he is nonexistent. Is Derrick Barry a GHOST?! and ALIEN SYMBIOTE?!?!? Were on to something SINISTER!
They did the puppet thing… kinda over the puppet thing to be honest.. comes off as a teensy bit forced and they shouldn't do it again I think because if they do it again it will go from KINDA over it to TOTALLY OVER IT and then because I love the show and I fear its dying I will not show my honest emotion which is sadness and fear of being abandoned I will instead start foaming at the mouth and attack everything else that hasn't changed like the WORK ROOM and that fucking GRIM REAPER MUSIC at the beginning of Untucked!!! I was listening to Eckart Tolle while doing back today at the gym so Im making a stronger effort to be present. I CANNOT recommend his teachings and meditations series enough by the way. Ru is actually the one who gave it to me. Its GOLD…
The runway was the most interesting of the season and I really liked the 1.5 hour format. I thought the challenges were creative and I was impressed with all of their abilities except Bob and Derrick, no surprises there Im over the SLOP SHOWS between them both. Its funny that Derrick calls Bob ratchet because Derrick is just as ratchet to me. They should actually be friends. Chi-chi just impresses me so much. Im so charmed by somewhoe who can makes something out of nothing. Its TRUE WIZARDRY!!! It really is TRUE SORCERY like you basically have the ability to summon something of your creation to this plane of consciousness from nothing!! Its FIERCE! I also thought Naomi did an excellent job. Im so impressed with both of them that its hard for me to say who should win. If either win I will be happy but if either win I will also be sad. Chi-chi is golden and like your grandma, she's not CUNT, she COULD BE CUNT, and HAS BEEN CUNT, so you respect her but you also know she holds the deep wisdom to know to not waste time in anger (wish I had that ability) so she's the power of love and creation. Naomi however speaks to me personally because she upholds all that I cherish and DOES have the RAGE to SLAY and DOMINATE and TEACH. Naomi is a COBRA and Chi-chi is a cow, how am I supposed to pick?!?! They are both so important for separate but equal reasons. I can relate to both fully and respect them equally. This season is really good I think for fresh reasons. I don't know of another season where Ive been into two of the finalists equally yet for different reasons.

That untucked music is so bad. They need to cheer it up. the tone says: "we execute the eliminated queen once the minivan turns the corner. Michelle Visage pops up in the back seat with a garrote and chokes them death and steals their lashes... 4 queens remain...."
