“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,...

4 Non-Money Things (and 1 Money Thing) You Can Do for Marriage Equality!

  The most important thing in this election is THE FOUR. TheFour2012.com is a website that brings you messages of love and support from people of all kinds, from committed gay couples, to grandparents, to religious leaders, to public figures like Jay-Z, Bruce Springsteen, and sports figures like Brendan Ayanbadejo of the Baltimore Ravens and...

The Best Anti-Gay Attack Ads of 2012, Part 2

Word on the street is that American media doesn’t hold a monopoly on outlandish political ads with unintentional comedy that borders on artistic decision. Australia is just as flagrant. And, oh, what a flagrant! Like the Anti-Mark Grisanti porn bomb ad from last week, the Katter spot uses an image of gay people that is...

“It’s grim. It’s grim.” That was what Aimee Mann said to Salon.com when asked to comment on the 2012 election. Actually, she was talking about her new album, Charmer, out since Tuesday, but all conversation nowadays is drawn inexorably down into the election drain. It’s a very honest, heartfelt, non-crazy read, and I strongly suggest you...

It’s Fall, and here come the biopics! If Summer is about Blowing Shit Up: The TV Show: The Movie: The Comic Book: The Movie Part 3, then Fall is about Famous People Go Through History and Emotions Then Put on Old Age Makeup and Die. Fall 2012 has big shoes to fill because Fall 2011 had a...

This is a post about the news of the invitation of the announcement of the release of the iPhone 5.  News fell that today would would indeed be the day the product would be available to the public.  No!  That would be the day they tell you about what’s in it and when you can...

The Best Anti-Gay Attack Ads of 2012, Part 1

We’re less than two months from the election that you may or may not have heard of. The topic on everybody’s lips is jobs. The word “jobs” has been said so many times in the past four years, that I’ve begun hating the sound of it and am think-tanking an alternative. In the meantime, I...
LA Playlist: Coppola Soundtracks

LA Playlist: Coppola Soundtracks

“egh, it’s hot outside! It’s HAAAHT!” Three good listens today, all Coppola soundtracks. Been feeling touchy and moody lately. It’s 90 degrees outside on a regular basis, and I just spent three hours getting a replacement air conditioning filter. Now it’s a struggling 83 degrees in the apartment. Be hot and moody with me: 1. “The...

In times of trial, I turn, as many do, to my Dad for wisdom. Recently he supplied me with some advice that I think can be applied to the media coverage of the “Batman” movie theater shootings. “Pigs do as pigs do. You can’t stop the pig from rolling in shit, but you can stay...
NOM is a Classless Piece of Shit 2: None of Your Gay Business

NOM is a Classless Piece of Shit 2: None of Your Gay Business

I’m often misunderstood as a politics man. I have a mild understanding of it, and an even milder passion for it, and this very website covers gay politics. So why do I not consider myself a politics man? Because I detest it. Like Eddie Valiant in Roger Rabbit, I unfortunately have to work in the...

Why Do Kids Hate Disneyland?

Disneyland! Little did Walt realize 57 years ago, when he opened his park to the public, that it would one day become a place where local college students would have the absolute silliest time of their lives and children would scream as if they were being burnt by candle wax. Pictures and video from the...

  We call my friend Becky the Angel of Death. When celebrity or other person of interest dies, I can always count on her as the bearer of the sad tidings. I don’t know what websites she frequents, or what Google alerts she gets, or what inside man at Cedars Sinai she’s got– someone dies,...
