Sweetbear started a podcast
This voyeuristic show brings you inside the living room of SweetBear as they play songs, discuss music, drink, argue, kiss, and even sometimes... fart.
Virtually unedited; come be a fly on the wall to our piddlings around the internet and piano
SweetBear listens to Phil Collins, Stephen Bishop, Dan Fogelberg, and Tom Waits. They hate on Andrew Lloyd Webber, fight over how bad of a listener Michelle is, and end the night jankily working their way through a new tune on the piano and guitar. Also, Nick farts.

You don't have to watch too much Sex and the City to know that the character of Samantha is pretty damn delicious. Unless of course, you fucking hate the whole thing anyways. Which is kind of understandable. Sex and the City is not for everyone. It's incredibly white, rich, and on many accounts ridiculous.
But if you're anything like me (and millions of other people out there), you just fucking love it. You love it so much that even 10 years after you originally binged it, you find yourself binging it again, and even putting yourself through the almost excruciating process of watching Sex and the City 2, a film not quite as terrible as we all first thought it was, but still... pretty fucking bad.
You may even find yourself saying, even out loud to your spouse/partner/whatever "Oh my god why don't they make a Sex and the City 3!!?"
And then you realize.... Kim Cattrall.
"Oh yeah... they can't make a third one... Kim Cattrall won't do it."
And while yes, they could make one without her, and if it's half as good as the first movie, and at least twice as good as the second one, we'll love it- we'll all wish Samantha was in it. I mean... she's practically the best part of the whole thang.
So okay, she won't do it.
Guess what. It's none of your fucking business.
Kim Cattrall owes you nothing. The entertainment industry owes you nothing. And it's not of your god damn business why she doesn't want to do it in the first place.
Personally, I totally get it if an actress with her career and experience decides that she doesn't want to put herself through the process of playing Samantha Jones again- especially if she does in fact have personal "beef" with Sarah Jessica Parker, or anyone associated with the whole thing. Whether she has beef or not, it still makes total sense to not want to go through that process again. Samantha is an incredibly sexual character who isn't afraid to show her body or her kinky mind to anyone and everyone in her path. You can't imagine going through playing that role for 15+ years and
at age 65 feeling like, "yeah, no, that's okay... I'm good." ??? If you can't imagine feeling that way, you've definitely never had a job you had a love/hate relationship with.
Whether she has beef or not with the cast or crew, can you not understand the amount of work (especially physically) it takes to prep for a role like that, and then execute it?
If you're personally all up in a tiff that she "won't" do it; Ummm.... why?
I've had many of my male friends, who have neither seen or heard a single episode of the show say something along the lines of "Oh yeah, what? They couldn't come up with a million dollars to offer her?" Or "Oh yeah, don't they hate each other or something?"
I just gotta say... the fact that people who don't even know the show say and think that is pretty fucking telling. It tells me that 1) people suck, 2) rumors spread easily, 3) people talk out of their ass allllllll the time, and 4) ummm.... just gonna say it... people have an issue with women.
On point 4- totally open to discussion. Type away.
P.S. This blog was written without any attempt at structure. Had zero editing, and is basically just me typing away. Should people actually care about what's written, please be kind with your grammatical and structural critiques; ain't nobody got time for that.
She be thinking... a lot.
