There are tidbits I didn't know. Child genius, warped sensibilities and family hypocrisy. The catalog is immense as is the concept of each song. Many odes to so many things only we can remember. The razzle dazzle is there, the actor siphons the legend's anger and the music remains inspired. A life worth celebrating. 05-Jul-2019
I Am Mother (2019)
It's about control as much as it is about survival. All three characters are mothers because that is a woman's first natural instinct. It has the most force and the film acknowledges it. They battle, the direction alights the mood, it's subject is fresh and I was never bored. 04-Jul-2019
Tales of the City (2019)
It suffers from appeasement. It wants to speak for everyone which sometimes creates a whisper. The loud is that family can be found as well as borne. The mysteries don't pump the heart, it confuses gripes with wit and it doesn't break new ground. All it wants to do is represent us. It did fine with that. 29-Jun-2019
Still Laugh-In: The Stars Celebrate (2019)
The nostalgia is cute and the new lets me snort for a bit but I don't understand what the celebration is about. There was no added description of the show past its pencil drawings. I was there and I still don't get it. 30-May-2019
RuPaul's Drag Race (2009-)
I appreciate the learning but the training has to go with it. 15-May-2019
Heartbreaking sweetness (Ms. Davenport.) I'd take your footage. No, I wouldn't. Maybe. 15-Mar-2019
Gorgeous pretense. Exactly what I needed. 13-Mar-2019
Finale. Salud. 29-Jun-2018
Reunion. It was about gay pride...the real one. 22-Jun-2018
The girls brought me happiness. 18-Jun-2018
The highlight was watching Ru bring adorableness to her drag. 26-May-2018
Good taste in body parts, great camaraderie between the girls and the showdown was built for the audience to stand as the girls bow. 22-May-2018
It was everything the last all-stars forgot this show was about. 27-Apr-2018
Ru was art deco doll, the girls brought fire and fantastical whimsy to drag and an integrated roster of pretty boy. Christina flashed her gay badge which warranted hope for an artistic comeback that only a supreme deserves. I'm excited. 23-Mar-2018
Blume In Love (1973)
A man thinks he can redeem his indiscretions by realizing his wife is the love of his life. The women keep it real, the story never flinches and George Segal keeps it nervously serial. The outcome is so fucked up it loses its purpose. 14-May-2019
Unexpected thoughtfulness. 08-May-2019
I no longer have Buffy but I still have you. The last two episodes wrung every artistic sentiment my mind could withstand. Thank you. 06-Apr-2019
The company allowed the schmuck in me to celebrate Christmas. 02-Dec-2018
The daddy (Bassett and Hines included) heroics are inventive, the pulse quickens with current thinking and our hearts get pulled. 25-Oct-2018
A great action piece can energize an attention span but plugging the acting talent to words that allow them to emote beautifully is sublime. 12-Mar-2018
We're in dire need of heroes to save us and Murphy's latest gift is ready to give them to us. Connie Britton and Peter Krause have returned to dominant form, Angela Bassett is having fun and Oliver Stark is a fragile delicacy. The stunts wallop, the words are thoughtful and inclusive and Ryan and crew are experimental ninjas. 16-Jan-2018
Ben Is Back (2018)
A Mother's Day Celebration card. Roberts is luminous lending artistic strength to a mother's compassion and struggle to save her addicted son. Her heart is her valor. Lucas Hedges adds fatigue to the privileged son who defies the comfort his family provides. He suddenly awakes to redemption while implicating everything he cared about. 05-May-2019
Morgan, The Pirate (1960)
Spanish history, slave trade, pirates, wenches and ship wars. Plenty of action and debauchery for short attention spans and Steve Reeves exposes body beautiful to keep the eyes fixed. 20-Apr-2019
Anti-gay GOP ex-congressman Aaron Schock photographed making out with another man at Coachella
The GOP ex-congressman whose sexuality was DC’s worst-kept secret has been spotted making out with another man at Coachella. Former Representative Aaron Schock who made a splash in the nation’s capital with his clothing choices, Instagram photos, and interior decorating choices, resigned after being accused of illegally using campaign funds to finance his over-the-top lifestyle.
Schock was a reliably anti-gay vote for Republicans, despite the parade of young men who visited his DC apartment, and his outing by journalist Itay Hod in 2014. Hod claimed he had walked in on his male roommate and Schock showering together.
But the former Congressman is back on social media after moving to West Hollywood where’s he’s been spotted doing some of the most stereotypical gay things possible – hanging out in gay bars, posing shirtless with gay fitness junkies, and enjoying quiet dinners with other men.
Public health emergency declared amid Brooklyn measles outbreak
Mayor de Blasio on Tuesday declared a public health emergency in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn to stem an outbreak of measles.
As part of the emergency order, unvaccinated individuals living in selected ZIP codes in the heavily Orthodox Jewish community who may have been exposed to measles will be required to receive the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine to help curtail the ongoing outbreak.
“We don’t take these steps lightly,” de Blasio said of the mandatory edict to get vaccinated. “It’s time to protect your family and your community.”
Those who have not received the measles vaccine — or do not have evidence of immunity — could be slapped with a violation and fined $1,000.
Love, Death & Robots (2019)
It doesn't allow you much prep time. It dives right into the action (with mixed results) but the eye is warped to the land of innovative technical wizardry and it magnetizes. 26-Mar-2019
Sally Field and Gay Son Sam Greisman Come Out for Equality Act
Multiple Academy Award and Emmy winner Sally Field has been a fierce advocate for LGBTQ rights, especially since she spoke publicly about her gay son Sam Greisman at a Human Rights Campaign event in 2012. Now she and Greisman appearing in a video together extolling the virtues of the Equality Act and just why the country needs it.
In a video for HRC, Field and Greisman chat back and forth via a video call about his being gay and how the Equality Act could impact so many American lives if Congress were to pass it.
The legislation, introduced in Congress earlier this month, would amend federal law to provide a wide range of protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It would ban discrimination not only in employment but in housing, credit, public accommodations, education, federal financial assistance, and federal jury service.
Will & Grace (2017-)
Snide and sweet. 13-Mar-2019
Exposing our weaknesses will force our strength to come out. Good job. 02-Dec-2018
The waitress killed it, the drag punched it and Grace/father/writers greatly punctuated "me too." Joy. 05-Nov-2018
Each actor hit an old note and the quickfire delivery allowed us to laugh with them. Tacky looks good on us. 08-Oct-2018
The teen girls deserve a sequel and Debra Messing got in touch with the Grace we all know and love. 12-Mar-2018
Allow them to grow up in character and we might never leave. 06-Nov-2017
There were times that Mullaly's Karen and Hayes' Jack were teetering on caricatures of themselves but all gets forgiven when we heave our first laugh. The politics are sharp, the hard work is evident and our love is unwavering. Welcome Back. 01-Oct-2017
Before Night Falls (2000)
A writer depicting the beauty of life is impaired from enjoying it due to oppressive politics and human tragedy. Schnabel practices skittishly and misses cultural opportunities but punches the story forward. Except for Depp's drag, the cameos resist the film's realism. Antonio is gay function, survivalist and poetically melodious. He sells it...and Martinez doesn't hurt. 09-Mar-2019
