National Geographic programming usually shifts from interesting to completely eye-roll worthy, but this particular special on these three particular transgender people — simply titled American Transgender — is something I’ve seen a couple of times. I think that when it first aired, I saw it twice in a row.

Guess I’m gonna miss the party. xD

In other news, I had NO idea that one of the songs on Time was written by Mavis Fan. The more you know.

Also how cut does BiBi look?

Damn, I know very little about Sammi Cheng — I may have heard a song or two (maybe?) — but damn~ that’s hot. Super hot. Vampire Shane Hot. LOL

Jing Chang just posted a photo of her in MJ attire.

Though it’s hot from the knee up, I gotta say- shoes are kind of distracting.
