best lesbian kiss

5 08 2009

The Sun out of the UK is reporting that, based on a poll of its readers, the Sarah Michelle Gellar-Selma Blair kiss on Cruel Intentions is the best lesbian kiss on film. In second place comes the Neve Campbell-Denise Richard lip lock in Wild Things, followed in third by a virtual unknown entry (at least, to me) between Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon in the 1980s vampire movie, The Hunger.

Funny. None of these are actual lesbian characters, just highly sexualized (and pretty evil/manipulative) ones. Hrm. Am I surprised?

The NewNowNext awards this summer gave the best lesbian kiss award to Bette and Tina from the L Word after a poll of its readers.

Murse?

Murse?

@JaytheBigLug, @JDDalton and I had a little discussion today on Twitter regarding the term “Murse.” I argued that “murse” was the term for “male nurse,” whereas @JDDalton had used it for a “male purse.” @JaytheBigLug informed me that the term was more common in regards to baggage. The Daily News proves me wrong. Murse means “male purse.” Sad. Whatever will I call myself when I graduate?

Thanks to Joe. My. God.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, a media watch dog for LGBTQ issues, has released its annual Network Responsibility Index. Of the five major networks (Fox, ABC, CBS, NBC, and the CW) and the ten largest cable networks (A&E, HBO, FX, Lifetime, SyFy/SciFi, MTV, Showtime, TBS, TNT, and USA), none received an “Excellent” rating. HBO, the CW, and ABC all received “Good” ratings; NBC, CBS, A&E, SyFy/SciFi, and TBS all received “Failing” grades. Fox jumped the highest, from last place to third, while CBS dropped to the bottom of the rankings.

Daniel Radcliffe on everything queer

15 07 2009

Daniel Radcliffe has been making some public statements lately that make him seem, to my mind, one of the coolest mo’fo’s around. Seriously. I’m sure some people get angry with him over his lack of PC, but, like Hillary making a joke about Indian grocers, I wonder if he says them because he feels so part of the community.

On rumors that he’s gay:

I grew up around gay people my entire life, basically, that’s possibly why I’m quite camp, and some people think I’m gay when I meet them, which I think is awesome…. [Apparently] someone said ‘Daniel Radcliffe is gay. He’s got a gay face!’ [Laughs] I really don’t know what a gay face is. But I think it’s wonderful that Dumbledore was outed as gay … Half of me thinks Jo Rowling just did that to see if she could piss off the right wing, but I’m not sure how true that is.

On wanting to play gay:

I’d love to play a drag queen or transvestite, but not just because of the costumes. Wait, what am I saying? Yes, because of the costumes! If the script was good – I wouldn’t just do it because I got to dress up. Although I maintain that I look good with eye make-up. And I’m not going to be an emo kid, so the only other option is drag queen.

On how to avoid the paparazzi:

The one piece of advice I would give to any actor is, if you want to go out on the street without being recognized, without even being looked at, go out with a 6′ 8″ beautiful transsexual. No one gives you a second glance. Especially when you’re 5′ 5″

See, now I just wanna hang out with him, though I still contend that Emma Watson is the best actor out of the leads in the Harry Potter series. And he’s getting better looking the older he gets…

Speaking of Harry Potter — my mother said it wasn’t good. What were y’all’s thoughts?





GLEE PREVIEW

9 07 2009

I watched it on HULU after a huge response on Twitter after it premiered this past Spring, but then it got pushed aside for new episodes into the Fall and I nearly cried.

How could they tease us with a halfway decent show and then strip us of a follow up?

Because it’s on FOX.

That’s ok, here’ the preview for the next season and I am positively GIDDY with the upcoming season!

And for those who have not checked it out yet, here is the entire Hulu archive of GLEE footage and the Pilot…. which, I just discovered, I could embed:

I actually have to give a nod to, of all places, ManhuntDaily — Manhunt, which despite its operator’s support of John McCain in 2008 and provides for the sexual outlet of innumerable gay boys in the world, runs a damned good blog… so much so it’s been blogrolled.





Total Eclipse of the Heart: Literal Version

It’s making the rounds on YouTube and Twitter, thought you may enjoy it:

I LOL’d a lot. I thought you might, as well.





RIP, MJ

7 07 2009

Today is MJ’s funeral. Bad was the first album I ever bought. I was being selfish and wanted the cassette, which my mother couldn’t dub (we had a single deck) so other people couldn’t have a copy of it. But The Wiz sticks with me as amazingly, simply Michael. But you know my fondness for Broadway. He was the king of showmanship, afterall.


Don’t try to read anything into my choices of music this morning. The videos suck, by the way. Just turn ’em on while you’re doing something else. You’ll be doing yourself a favor.

Go here for a live stream of MJ’s funeral today, starting at 1pm.
