The Problem with 'Bully': FILM REVIEW

The Problem with ‘Bully': FILM REVIEW

Written by guest writer Marcus Kaye.

You didn’t read that wrong. It’s not supposed to say a problem with “bullies.” Bullies are already a problem. A huge problem.

I know, the title leaves little to the imagination.

6 Stupid, Probably Unhealthy Ways I’m Surviving Agent Querying

This is not going to be a love letter to myself, to my work, or to my patient almost-husband. As an unpublished author with a tasty thriller out on query to a dozen literary agents, it is my primary job to get back to work. Another manuscript is in the hopper, and a series of...

The Life and Death of a Bookstore’s Gay Pride

As I arrived in West Hollywood in 2008, A Different Light was dying. I don’t have any memories of the queer bookseller other than its closure. It had been a chain store with enormous swinging power and meant a ton to everyone in town. I would have liked to have seen the little bookshop in...

Which Books Scare Gay Kids?

All gay kids want to be borne from their bullshit. I did, but if you’d ask me then, I’d have told you that I was married to my bullshit – and by the way, what bullshit? Leave me alone. People who know me now know I’m as gay as Truman Capote’s purple cigarettes from Murder...

REVIEW: “House of Cards” The Entire 1st Season

SPOILER-FREE SECTION House of Cards is the first great film of 2013. Oh, what is our industry to do when the walls between film and television’s dimensions dissolve completely? Netflix Original Series made TV history yesterday when they launched all 13 episodes of their remake of the 1990 British Series of the same name. The...

LA Playlist: DJANGO UNCHAINED Soundtrack

“Django Unchained” Originals (EXPLICIT) The Golden Globes have come and gone, and they proved infinitely entertaining (as my post yesterday pointed out). The Oscars are also approaching next month, but there’s one category in both award shows that I feel is woefully broken: Best Original Song. Gone are the days of “My Heart Will Go On”...

LA Playlist “Watch This Edition”

The Golden Globes were last week, and my oh my, was that an entertaining and eventful night! As of late, these shows have become kind of “meh,” but this year, the show elicited three “MUST SEE” videos. First and foremost, you’ve probably seen this bit already that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig did when introducing...

Gay News Roundup: Darling, It’s 2013, Darling!

Congress is Back in Session! (Sorry) Long story short, America has some spending cuts to make, but we are never too broke to drop the gay marriage fight. Millions funding the legal defense of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) will continue, and Hurricane Sandy Relief funding will stop, as will the now discontinued Violence...

Gay in Illinois, The 10th Marriage State

Chicago at this time of year gets a magnificent soft winter sunlight. “New York in your pocket” is how I think of my home city with its snow-salted skyline. For people who presently live there, I’m sure my carrying on is a little silly, possibly even enraging, since you are most definitely in the grip...

NOM is a Classless Piece of Shit 3: Revenge of the Snits

It’s been one week since the election, and boy, the Internet has been a tree of delicious, ripe fruit for gay-friendly people! The whirlwind re-election of Barack Obama, the hobbling of the Tea Party, the self-destruction of poisonous GOP puppet master Karl Rove, the clean sweep of gay marriage initiatives… Let me just say that...

How is Adam Getting His Drink On? Election Day!

“It’s not about political parties, it’s about the cocktail party!” – James Carville (D) and a silent, fuming Mary Matalin (R) That’s right, it’s been one long year of campaigning, and another long year of Republican primaries, but we’re finally wrapping this big piece of crap up. In a way, this election has been the Avengers...

“For now, let’s call her Cleopatra.” Eccentric musician Frank Ocean has had a tremendous surge in the last year. This is surprising because, as I wrote the other day about David Lynch’s music, Ocean is not exactly the norm. His biggest singles of the moment, “Thinking About You” and “Pyramids” (which he performed brilliantly on Saturday...

“I want to have a good day today.” David Lynch has returned to his unsettling music career in the six years since he’s made a film (2006’s underrated, horrific, Laura Dern-cry-face slog Inland Empire). Last year, he released the album Crazy Clown Time, which you can sample on his site DavidLynch.com, along with spooky mood pieces from Inland,...
