You need a quick break?
Simple and sweet.

Mushpa + Mensa talks quite a bit about the stuff you see out there on the World Wide Web and TV that isn’t always super positive. We want to make Mushpa + Mensa’s blog mad positive. We want to show humans at their best and/or most beautifully vulnerable. We want to build up, not tear down, unite not divide.
Now that we’ve said all that, here is something to start us off, the “Ten Meter Tower“.
Like I always say, it’s about the jumping, as long as you jump, you may not end up where you expect, but you’ll always end up somewhere better than where you were.

I know you all have been waiting for my 2017 lesbian flick preview reviews to come out. Keep in mind they are not all from 2017, that is just when I reviewed said previews. It is 3AM on a Tuesday, raining, perfect.
I have not seen any of the actual movies yet as they are either not officially out or because I now live in an endearing little town in the South that does not have a place to watch said films. I should be the one to remedy this.
The first film is, La Luciérnaga (The Firefly) from 2013. A sister loses her brother and then falls in love with his widow.
Next is Ah-ga-ssi (The Handmaiden) a 2016 South Korean erotic psychological thriller. It’s based on one of my all time favorite BBC series, written by lesbian Sarah Waters, Fingersmith. Watch it first! This should be breathtaking.
Next is Lovesong. No regrets. 2016 release. May not be a full fledged lesbo flick, but you know…. :]
Last, but not least, Heartland – 2016. Death, The South, lesbians, and love, I can’t wait.
Movies are art. Art is life. Life is connecting.

Last week we went to Cucalorus’s opening night party.
The next day I got the flu.
The next day we made a movie.
The next day I was in the ER.
The next day I hurled all day.
The next day we were at the Cucalorus 10×10 Screening and CONNECT Presenters Party.
This was my last week and this is the film we made with our great team (Brianna Okamoto, Josh Stowe, Andy Nielsen, Hillary Scott). I wasn’t sure I was going to make it, the movie that is, but when you have a dream and are given an amazing opportunity you push through it all to get there.
