Because It’s Monday, Here’s a Dazzling Vintage Glamour Portrait
March 21, 2011

It’s Monday, y’all, and I don’t know what the weather’s like in your neck of the woods, but it’s cold and rainy and definitely not indicative that spring is anywhere near up here in New York City, so I figured if it won’t actually be warm, let’s at least warm the cockles of our hearts:

Obviously this portrait’s doing the trick.

It’s clear this kid understands that it takes more than just a yellow mesh muscle shirt or a pair of spandex pants to get the sort of look that simply screams, “WORK, BITCH!” No no, you’d best be putting them together, and you’ll also need a rat tail that would make Vidal Sassoon and his “five point” haircut weep tears made out of deep conditioner and seething jealousy. Most importantly, though, you really need a pair of ballet flats.

Alright Already! We’ll Talk About Glee
May 27, 2009

Yeesh.  Certain people, who shall remain nameless but might have names that rhyme with Shmarker and Shmathan (just saying, and also, love you guys!), have been all up in my grill about Glee.  It’s nothing but “Why don’t you blog about Glee?” this and “I hate your face ’til you blog about Glee!” that.  So fine, here we go:

Seriously, was there ever any question?  I think not.  If anything, my only complaint is that we’re all forced to wait until this fall for more Glee.  That’s ass and a half, y’all; fortunately, despite Fox clearly conducting an experiment in patience amongst the nation’s gays (and their fag hags), Glee is anything but ass and a half.

Maybe it’s hyperbole, but Glee‘s the most inspired television show in quite some time.  The underdog-competitor-meets-Busby-Berkeley-musical vibe is infinitely charming blend of camp and heartfelt sincerity, and any show that can bring together both the eternally adorable Jayma Mays and eternally fierce Jessalyn Gilsig clearly knows a thing or two about casting.  And let’s not forget that Glee gave us the single greatest rendition of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” ever made EVER:

Give Me a Good Reason to Not See Chéri
April 2, 2009

Oh, wait, there are none.  Just look at this period-piece hotness:

This.  Looks.  Fabulous.  

I would gladly just sit for forever watching Michelle Pfeiffer and Kathy Bates read each other the phone book while lunching on tuna sandwiches and getting pedicures.  I’m not quite sure why I have such a specific image in my head, but if you imagine it, you too will realize that its incredibly delightful.  Throwing them in such gorgeous and colorful costumes and casting them as retired courtesans in turn-of-the-century Paris is like a delectable, pink buttercream icing on an already decadent homo cake.  Knowing that Stephen Frears, who’s responsible for some damn fine films like High Fidelity and Dirty Pretty Things, is playing chef to this cinematic dessert only confirms the already obvious: Chéri will be delicious.  

June 26th cannot come quickly enough!  Me so hungry right now!
