The Bi Line: Little Voice and a Little Bit of Queer Romance from @kleffnotes

I should begin this article by saying that my sister has been very kindly letting Krista and I watch a couple shows on her Apple+ account. Much like everyone in the world, at least I think this is a very standard practice, my family all shares passwords to different services so that everyone can try and watch the shows they want. Krista is a huge fan of Sara Bareilles and she really wanted to watch her new show, Little Voice. The show follows Bess, a singer-songwriter, who is trying to find a place for herself in the music industry. When the series starts she is struggling with being able to perform after being heckled off of a stage while playing one of her original songs. While Bess is the lead she isn’t going to be the focus of this article. Instead I want to talk about Prisha, Shalini Bathina, her best friend and roommate.

Batwoman Season 1 Blu-ray Release Review from @kleffnotes

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own. After that quick mandatory disclosure I am excited to announce that Batwoman is now available on Blu-ray for anyone who might have been having an issue watching the series on The CW, actual channel or their free online site, or could not get HBO Max, which was the only streaming service that you could watch it on after the finale. With a release today you have plenty of time to get caught up on the first season in time for the second season and for the arrival of the new Batwoman.

What the Earp?!: Fandom and the Season So Far from @kleffnotes

Admittedly I am probably not the person you would come to for a Wynonna Earp article. My Twitter is sort of a hodgepodge of non-fandom and fandom things, but you might not be able to figure out what fandoms I am a part of. This ties into my innate sort of fear of fandom, this has nothing to do with any particular fandom and I was, I think at least, a pretty big part of the Carmilla fandom for a period of time. When new content for that stopped coming out I sort of dropped out of the fandom realm. Continue reading “What the Earp?!: Fandom and the Season So Far from @kleffnotes”

The Bi Line: Lawyers and Love Interests from @kleffnotes

In the past few weeks Krista and I have been watching a lot of shows and movies that have included lawyers, primarily District Attorneys and prosecutors. During this binge one of the shows we wound up watching was a two season show with a total of 20 episodes called For the People. This was my favorite of the shows we chose to watch and it surprised me in season one with a character being presented as queer. Continue reading “The Bi Line: Lawyers and Love Interests from @kleffnotes”

To Bane, With Love from @kleffnotes

This article is a bit of a follow-up piece to my Harley and Ivy article that primarily focused on the animated Harley Quinn series. While watching it my wife Krista decided that her favorite character was Bane and as one of the few people on this planet, if not the only person, who reads all of my articles she noted his lack of presence in my previous feature. Instead of crafting an addendum and then putting an update I thought I would instead write about the character of Bane and how the Harley Quinn series handles this particular character.

Reliving My Childhood with The Babysitters Club on Netflix from @kleffnotes

My love of reading was very much influenced by The Babysitters Club books and when I learned the series would be returning with a new modernized story I was immediately very excited. Growing up my parents frequently took me and my siblings, once they were born, to used bookstores. Typically we would travel to Columbus, Ohio from Lima and spend the day going to multiple Half Price Books and in my earliest years of used book shopping this meant spending my time in the children’s clearance section. For whatever reason The Babysitters Club books were always there and always within my little kid book budget. I would stock up on them and while they were a bit mature for me at the time, I was under 6 when I started reading the books, my dad would read them to me and then I would go on to also read them myself.

The Bi Line: Harley Quinn and #Harlivy from @kleffnotes

In the past few years I have grown to love the character Harley Quinn primarily through the Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner comics. I was very dedicated to having Harley on my pull list, now that I live in the country the pull list is gone, but I do still read some Harley, buy Harley merch, and re-watch Harley Quinn: The Birds of Prey. When I heard about the animated Harley Quinn series I was very curious about it, but I didn’t want to commit to another streaming service. When season one come out on DVD I ordered it and convinced Krista we should watch it. Not only did we watch the first season, but within three days we watched all of season two and let me tell you it was completely worth the binging. Continue reading “The Bi Line: Harley Quinn and #Harlivy from @kleffnotes”

The Bi Line: Ending Pride with Some Recommendations from @kleffnotes

Pride is coming to an end technically, though really shouldn’t we just be celebrating our identities every month? As someone who has never lived near a place that does a Pride event, the closest was about an hour and a half away and I was only ever able to go one time since I don’t drive, strangely quarantine allowed me to actually participate in one for the first time in ages. Lez Hang Out, one of the podcasts I try to actively listen to every week, hosted the live stream with guests from across the country. While I was not tuned in for the entire stream, what I did see was a delight and I hope that even if we aren’t in quarantine next Pride month that they host this even again.
