Meet Lacie Harmon and Robin Greenspan from the YouTube hit show ‘Lacie and Robin show’

Good morning everyone and welcome. As I promised, I have invited Robin Greenspan and Lacie Harmon from the hit YouTube Lesbian show, “Lacie and Robin”. These two women talk about everything under the sun, while being as hilarious as ever. If you haven’t seen them, you have to check them out. You you’re going to be amazed!

Tell us about yourselves, each of you.
Lacie: At this point, there is no “each of” us. It’s one big organism. Just kidding (kind of). Robin’s from L.A. I’m from Jersey.

Robin: We met 21 years ago doing stand-up comedy. We were cast to play lovers in a play and we took it too far. We accidentally fell in love . . .

Lacie: If you really wanna know how we met, you can see it in our movie, “Girl Play”, on Amazon. It’s the movie version of our two-woman show and we star in it, along with Dom Deluise and Mink Stole. (If you’re over 40, you know who those people are.)

What is the ‘Lacie and Robin’ YouTube channel about? How did it come into being?
We lesbian-splain everything from relationships to personal development. One of our most popular segments is called “Ask a Lesbian Couple”. People ask us questions about the lesbian lifestyle that they maybe don’t have a lesbian couple to ask or maybe have been too afraid.

Lacie and Robin Show  – New shows every Wednesday.

What was it like being on the beach when you visited Cancun, Mexico?
Robin: It was an all-inclusive resort and Margaritas were served on the beach. The water was warm and it was only waste-high so you could drink and pee at the same time. It was perfection.

Lacie: God, I can’t take you anywhere. I’m not a beach person. I experience the beach as a burst of indignities, from my toes touching the sand until the last salty particle has gone up my crotch. All that aside, I had a good time. We were with family and it was a great group of people.

Who do you relate to most from Absolutely Fabulous – Edina, Patsy, or Saffron and why?
Robin: I still struggle with being Saffron but Eddie’s my spirit animal. Although, I think it also bears mentioning, I took an online quiz once that said I was most like Bubble.

Lacie: I think I’m Saffron but with a little edge of Patsy. I’m definitely a schemer like she is. I have a sneaky side.

Lacie and Robin and Dom

How long have you been vegan? Can you share with us your favorite dish?
Robin: We’ve been vegan a little over 5 years now. We saw a documentary that had, like, a two-minute visit to a factory farm and that was it. We looked at each other like, “Okay. I guess we’re vegan now.”

Lacie: We made a vegan nacho cheese recipe for a recent video. It was just supposed to be for fun but we got so addicted to this stuff that we’ve eaten it every day for a week. It’s not really a dish but since we pour it over everything we eat now, it’s become more of an entrée.

In addition to your show, in what other ways do you reach out to your community?
We’re big Twitter and Facebook lovers. We’re “Lacie and Robin” on both and we have a very engaged crowd who comment and retweet. And, we love talking to everybody on those platforms.

Where can we get a great cup of Joe in LA?
We’re not sure it’s the best cup of coffee, but the hippest cup of coffee is at Highland Park Café, which is close to our home. You must have multiple piercings, sleeve tattoos or the skinny lumberjack look (men only) to enter. They let us in, we assume, because we’re lesbians, which is its own type of hip nowadays. And they have three types of non-dairy milk.

Lacie and Robin's cats2

Have you ever volunteered for a cat rescue sanctuary? If so how was your experience?
We’ve always had at least two cats who we got at the pound at any given time, so we consider ourselves a bit of a small-scale cat sanctuary. But, we’ve never volunteered at one.

Tell us about your experience in making your movie, ‘Girl Play’. Have you done any other writing? Where can it be found/purchased?
Lacie: Making “Girl Play” was a magical but nerve-wracking experience. It was the opportunity of a lifetime to star in a movie by and about us. But, it was also scary as shit to star in a movie by and about us.

Robin: Nothing in life prepares you for doing a topless love scene with a legend like Dom Deluise in the room. But, in all seriousness, he was delightful. The hardest thing about working with him was trying not to crack up during our scenes with him. We both just absolutely adored him.

Lacie: Mink Stole, who played Robin’s mom, was also a total blast to work with. We also got to meet and work with Sara Bareilles who made a cameo and contributed her awesome music to the soundtrack. If you want to see it, you can buy it on Amazon.com or stream it on Lesbian.com.

In terms of what’s next, we’ve since written a screenplay that we sold. And, Robin has written a musical comedy called “Beguiled” in which Adam and Eve travel through time to present-day San Francisco, where Adam becomes America’s favorite bad-boy, and Eve is put on trial for the downfall of humanity. So, it’s pretty timely. The show had a very successful staged reading in Hollywood, and we’re really looking forward to taking it to the next level.

Which LA beach (SM, Malibu too) is your favorite to walk along the water’s edge?
Actually, when we go to the beach out here, it’s usually Venice. We love it for the freaky people factor. A total hippie hang. This is the kind of place conservatives are deathly afraid liberals want the whole country to look like: every race, religion, creed and lifestyle on full display. That’s why we love it.

What would you attribute as the number one factor for the success of a long-term relationship?
Robin: We feel like the thing that has made our relationship the most successful is that we never forget how lucky we are to have found each other.

Lacie: We treat the relationship like our child. It’s something we devote ourselves to and take excellent care of. And we feel like we’re both on a team. So, if there’s ever a question about what to do, we always ask ourselves, “What benefits the team?”

Which one of your past jobs offered a lot of fun?
Robin: When I was a teenager, I worked at a movie theatre with a bunch of my friends. We got free popcorn and got to sneak our friends into the movies for free. So, we were pretty popular. I also memorized every line from the movie “Tootsie.”

Lacie: I liked waiting tables. I met some of my best friends for life there. There were constantly celebrities and fancy people coming through and we would sneak food constantly.

Robin: So, any job where there was free food.

What is next for you?
Our plan is to keep growing the YouTube channel and expanding our content, possibly to other platforms. Our mission is to spread as much love, compassion and acceptance as humanly possible. If you’re reading this, come check out our YouTube channel and subscribe! We’d love to have you in the family!

Season’s Greetings to All

Hello friends. It is good to see you today. A lot more has been happening. First of all, I want to thank all of you who have been supportive. Just this summer we lost our Onyx, who was only seven years old. She was my buddy and I miss her so much. She will always have a special place in my heart. It was a riot watching her run around the back yard and then run up the tree. She used to wander until the next door neighbor’s dog scared her away, so she stayed in the back yard. What was fascinating was that she would play fetch with us like a dog would. We often wondered if she was part lab since she was obsessed with water. Things like flowers in a vase would intrigue her. Then she would tip it over.

Recently, we adopted a new friend. His name is Maui, named after our wonderful vacation, and he is a ball of joy. Not that he’d ever replace Onyx. He is about 8 months old and is a ball of fire. Like Onyx, he too, loves the tree in the backyard. He loves being in stealth mode too, especially when he is chasing squirrels out of the yard, which he has officially claimed as his. Chasing balls and the string game are faves of his.

I have been busy beta reading for a friend of mine. Her story captured me right from the start and kept me with it the entire ride. The story will be published early next year and is full of twists. I will keep you posted.

On October 23, 2015 I interviewed Amy Dunne, author of “The Renegade”. We also had a gift giveaway which Annette Mori won. Amy Dunne gave away a free copy of her book. It was fun and I appreciate all who participated. I am currently reading this book so stay tuned for my upcoming review.

Amy Dunne’s Interview

I am hard at work with my three stories. The beta readers who have helped me have been a gift and their feedback has been very valuable. Thank you!

 Go Blue

It was exciting watching baseball this post-season in “October”. The Dodgers won their division for the regular season. Yeay! However, when it came time for them to play the Met’s, they fell apart. I was so disappointed since I was hoping they were going to go to the World Series. Kansas City pulled ahead and got the prize. Congrats to them since they haven’t won the title in 30 years! It was exciting to see this team so into the moment with joy. They have some really great players and I felt they deserved it.

The Dodgers are in the process of building their next season’s team – so hopefully they’ll take that ball and run with it. After an anticipating wait, the Dodgers have finally selected former Dodger Dave Roberts as Manager! This is exciting news and I feel he’s going to lead the team all the way into the postseason next year. For those of you who don’t know, Dave was on the team from 2002 to ‘04 and played in centerfield. Go Blue 2016.

 Halloween

This time of year is always a favorite time for me. I have been a fan of the holiday season since I can remember. For Halloween, we decked out the house with some decorations and had a party. I made my famous pumpkin pie, which was really fun. I also made homemade chili, and corn bread. In addition, I made my famous pumpkin bread and homemade vegan enchiladas for my wife’s company potluck. This was the first time I was invited to a company function. It was great to meet her co-workers and see them enjoy the food.

Here is my pumpkin pie recipe:

Pumpkin Pie

Pie Filling

1 pie pumpkin

1/3 cup grapeseed oil

1 package tofu

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

Spices to flavor – Nutmeg, cinnamon, clover, cardamom, and ginger.

 

Pie Crust:

2 cups flour

2/3 cup cold butter

3 Tbs grapeseed oil

3 Tbs very cold water

1 Tbs sugar

Put flour and sugar into a bowl. Cut butter into flour using a mixer. Mix until flaky. In a separate bowl, mix together oil and cold water. Blend this with flour mixture until you can form a ball, then set aside covered for a half hour.

Cut up pumpkin and put into a covered dish and bake at 350° for about 45 mins to an hour. Cool. Then peel the skin and put into a food processor. Blend until smooth, then add the rest of the Pie Filling ingredients. Blend until creamy.

Roll out dough on a piece of parchment paper so that it fits your pie pan. With the crust in place, fill with the filling. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Check using a toothpick. If it comes out clean, it’s done. Enjoy! I take mine with a cup of hot joe.

Recently my wife and I took a day trip up to Point Dume, which is our favorite beach. It was a sunny day and the sun’s reflection upon the water was breathtaking.

 Point Dume.jpg

While there, we strolled along the beach, absorbing the negative ions that were in the air. Strewn every so often were bunches of kelp. What fascinated us were the footsteps in the sand. We visualized what story the very strange patterns of footsteps were telling. Some were joggers along the beach. Others were just people like us, wanting to enjoy the essence of the ocean by just simply strolling along.

Afterwards we drove up PCH along the coast and enjoyed the beauty of the coastline.

This Thanksgiving, we went to visit our sister-in-law, who lives about three hours away.   I made a vegan cuisine, complete with Tofurky, cranberry pierogis, gravy, and pumpkin pie, which we packed. I haven’t been out her way in a long time so it was reminiscent of trips we’d taken in the past through the desert.

I used to take random road trips throughout Arizona, just to get away and enjoy the pretty sights. The serene desert clears my mind. It is a spiritual centering experience to drive through a lightning storm with thunderous clouds, only to follow with pure sun blue skies once again. I love my big city, but it feels good to get away.

On Dec 18-15 Linda Bates, author of “Everlusting Love” will be with us answering questions such as this one: Can you share with us a bit about your love for poetry? Linda is from the UK and is the author of ‘American Dream’ and ‘The Life of a Lesbian Kisser’, both of which are available on Amazon.

 Linda Bates

I want to give a shout out to those of you who retweeted my tweet about author Judy Folger, author of ‘Family Pride.” Judy is one who loves to spread good vibes and her writing is rich and heart-felt.  Thanks so much!

This holiday season I want to wish all of you a safe and fun time. This is also a time for reflection and giving. A great way to share is to participate in donations to your local food-bank. Imagine how happy you can make someone by providing healthy food. Let’s all go out and make our earth a better place. Go out and open doors at the store for mothers who have children in tow. Thank the cashiers and say something that will brighten their day. These actions may be small, but they mean a lot and are well appreciated.

Until Next Time,

Lynn
