  • Comments: Well *I* don't wish I was a lesbian, personally (although it's a nice idea)... but there's some anime characters who really do wish they were lesbians because, let's face it, guys suck. Especially anime guys.


    This video is a comedy about the benefits of being a lesbian.


    I had the idea way back in spring 2002 and was going to try and make the video for AWA 2002. I didn't so the next plan was for Otakon 2003... and then I missed the deadline. So, this became my entry for the AWA Professional Contest.

    In a sense, this is a homage to a lot of old comedy videos such as DokiDoki works, Hungry Like the Wolf (lupin) etc etc. It's also a serious attempt at lip synch which is something I've always found very very hard to do.


    Lyrics:

    I wish I was a Lesbian and not a hetero,
    I wouldn't have to mess with men and all their come and go
    and all that awful facial hair and yucky machismo!
    Ooooh I wish I was a lesbian and not a hetero.

    I wish I was a lesbian and that I wasn't straight,
    I would sleep with women only, man it would be great!
    I could throw away my diaphragm I wouldn't wanna mate!
    Ooooh I wish I was a lesbian and that I wasn't straight, hey!

    I wish I was a lesbian I'd like to be a dyke,
    I would hang with K.D. Lang, Mel Gibson take a hike,
    I think it would be nice to love someone who was alike.
    Ooooh I wish I was a lesbian I'd like to be a dyke.

    I wish I was a lesbian that's why this song is sung,
    it shouldnt' have to matter how someone is hung,
    other things are more important - like how you use your tongue!
    blblblblbl I wish I was a lesbian that's why this song is sung, hey!

    (I dare Casey Casem to play this)

    I wish I was a lesbian I know it's sad but true,
    then maybe I'd understand you guys and all you do,
    but if I was a lesbian I wouldn't have to!
    I wish I was a lesbian I know it's sad but true, hey

    I wish I was a Lesbian and not a hetero,
    I wouldn't have to mess with men and all their come and go
    and all that awful facial hair and yucky machismo!
    (I hate that damn machismo)
    Ooooh I wish I was a lesbian and not a hetero.
    I wish I was a lesbian and not a hetero.
    I wish I was a lesbian and not a heterooooooo.
