MY FAVE L WORD So, this might be just my opinion, but at

least throughout season one and two, the most intriguing, hottest cast member has been Whitney Mixter—surely I am not alone in this thought. It’s pretty clear she’s the fav, just like good old Shane on the The L-Word. Of course she has returned for season three; It wouldn’t be a show without her, oh and Sara who just might become her fiancée(?). Personally I could do with less Romi—Sorry kid! But I do like seeing more Lesbian family life like Kacy and Cori trying to have a baby. But back to Whitney: Now Whitney’s big

focus has been on promoting her monthly all girl party called Juicy. If it suits your fancy, the next big one is her Birthday Bash—Sat- urday, August 4 at Rage Nightclub on Santa Monica Boulevard. You know there will be an awesome D.J. and sexy dancers. Impres- sively, it’s just a $5 advance RSVP cover be- fore 10:30 p.m. or $10 at the door after 10:30 p.m. They do sell VIP tables as well, but those are long gone for August. I gotta say now, I must be getting older. I

What’s your favorite thing to cook? Things that are challenging, I have been trying

dishes from this classic New York Times cookbook and I like Vietnamese food, seafood, oysters. What’s your dream for the band? To keep playing music and be sustainable as musi-

cians; we have played in Canada, the U.S., Germany and the U.K. I’d like to see us go to more places, like Japan and Australia. You mentioned recording sessions this past winter. We toured so much for two to three months and we

wanted to focus, so we spent the winter in our studio in Brooklyn. One person would submit an idea or a verse or say, “How about this chorus or this riff?” And it would all magically come together—anything is possible with the power of a group. What’s your best advice to someone just starting out in the industry? It is a hard industry, a hard road, but if you are passionate it is worthwhile—it is amazing and challenging. You have to continue to push for it and remember you’ll have good and bad reviews; I don’t love them, but I keep going and focus on the positive.

What’s your nickname? I’m part Japanese so some of my friends call me

Yoko-Homo, sometimes just Homo for short. I’ll be walking down the street in New York and friends will yell, “Hey Homo” and I’ll respond to it. The people around us must be thinking, ‘Why are those girls screaming homo and why is she responding to it?’ How can we best support your rising Lesbian band? Like the band on facebook and you could buy the

CD Collide and Conquer, or come experience a live Hunter Valentine show. Anything else I didn’t think to ask you or you want to say? Yes, I‘d like to say something about me, is that okay?

Sure, of course. I just want people to know that even though I may

look like a hard-ass on the show, possibly even an asshole, I do have a softer side and I hope people see it as the season continues. It’s a big risk and anything I said being a jerk, I can’t take the words back.

OOOH! Gotta love the dyke drama! Catch The Real L Word and Hunter Valentine performances Thursday nights at 10 p.m. on Showtime. Don’t forget to grab a copy of Hunter Valentine’s new CD Collide and Conquer! coming out mid-September.

reached “beyond 30,” and I am settled in and married since 2008. I’m oving life, but I can’t imagine starting the night at 10:30 p.m. any- more—besides I was always a slumber party type of lesbo. If you check it out, let me know what you thought. The monthly All-Girl Juicy Parties are on

different dates and venues throughout L.A. For tickets and more information visit the site
