Can we get something like this here at the University of Texas? Swimmers in Speedos were auctioned off as pizza delivery boys in order to raise funds at Penn State. The boys sold for $235. Clearly there weren't enough gay men in the room.
We may not have Donnie Osmond or "Twilight" author Stephanie Meyer fighting for our rights, (she hasn't officially said anything negative so don't freak quite yet vampire lovers... but she is a VERY devout Mormon) but most of Hollywood ALWAYS defends our honor. For example:
Dear Maya, I miss seeing your many faces every week. Come back to us! Dear NPH, you keep getting cuter in this quirky way... and I think you should always go shirtless:
I also LOVE how OTR friends Brunson, Tate, and Quintin are in this fantastic sketch. THE BEST part of this musical, however, is the non-star in the glasses BARRETT FOA (well that's a bit harsh I guess, since he DOES have several facebook fanpages and has been in several Broadway productions). Last week, Chris Arnold made out with Barrett at Popstarz! The next day Chris showed Pocket pictures of his midnight conquer to which Pocket showed Chris a message he coincidentally received on facebook that day from Barrett that read "We should date. Let me know when you're available." So direct! So creepy! I wonder what Barrett's reaction will be when he finds out Chris and Pocket are roommates. Oops! Gays are so incestuous.
I know all I do is push music and movies down your throats, and I apologize but here comes another.
I along with everyone at Focus Features is extremely proud to be associated with MILK and should you take the time to see the film I think you will understand why. Its a touching hopeful film that just might be the "Best Picture" of the year (fingers crossed). MILK is playing in New York and LA as well as other select cities across the country and will open this Friday, December 5th in Austin.
If you have not seen the trailer yet, check it out.
See you all at "Hey Homo!" on Tuesday night! The legendary Rebecca Havemeyer is hosting Clue at the Alamo Drafthouse Downtown. Here's what she has to say: Have ya' ever been trapped in a big ol' fancy house in cold weather with a rope around ya' neck, a dagger in ya' back, a candle stick on ya' head, a wrench in ya' teeth, a revolver in ya' face and a lead pipe up ya' butt? We'll I have!...and I gotta say it was one hell of a party! REBECCA HAVEMEYER here sayin', "It's November, Turkey Necks!"..and HEY HOMO! is cordially inviting you to join your enthusiastically ignorant hostess as I emcee the one and only...CLUE at the Alamo Ritz! It's gonna be a night of boozey murder, special guests, chilled monkey's brains and after party shufflin' at Rain! You'd be a sad duck to miss this one, honey! All's I gotta say is...Flames, Flames from the side of my head! Booya!
I checked out Ophelia (written and directed by Dustin Wills) last weekend and it was thoroughly entertaining... Check out the review over at The Onion or just buy your tickets here because "thoroughly entertaining" is enough for you.
I see a lot of films and rarely recommend them, for example The Changeling (skip it, it was a Lifetime Movie without any substance abuse, dangerous sex or murderous cheerleaders, basically just melodramatic and long.) However, I saw Slumdog Millionaire in a sold out theater on a freezing Wednesday night in New York City and loved it. I highly recommend taking the time and money to see this film.
If you live in New York or LA you can check this film out now, for those of you in Austin and around the rest of the country check your local listings on November 28th.
