    Queer film, novels, art

    Yes please! It makes you wonder-- all those men and just one girl... It was a very homosocial environment, that's for sure.

    expect to see lots of Tom of Finland art in all the gay blogs this week. It's his birthday on the 8th. His official site is selling a cross stitching kit that I need in my life!

    My mind is still reeling a bit from just watching this, but I can definitely say it's the most sensual and suspenseful film I've seen in awhile.

    ^I just watched that on NETFLIX.
    Before I watched it, however, I looked it up and the word "HitchCOCKian" was in every description. They weren't kidding.
    The film is so bizarre. The fact that we never see any of the characters outside the confines of the lake is really what intrigues me. I mean, maybe the reason why the movie is so talked about is exactly because of all the things a "typical" movie has that this film doesn't. Look at a movie like Shortbus for instance that has the same graphic sex.. that movie can be embraced or dismissed for many reasons.. there's a lot of stuff going on outside of the Shortbus Club... the characters have lives and the club is just a component.
    A while back .. around the time the last X-men movie was coming out.. some friends and I were talking about Hedwig. I told my friend she needed to see Shortbus, etc. And someone else told her not to watch it, knowing her taste in film, because Shortbus was a porno. I defended Shortbus and said it wasn't a porno. Then he convinced me and I decided, yes, it was porn.. If you ask me now, I'd say it wasn't... but whatever.. back to this film

    With this movie the things that grab your attention are the things that never change until the crazy ass ending. The guy who is just sitting there to have some peace of mind before going back to work for instance. Why did he have to
    .
    I would have loved to have been at the table reading for this movie. I can't imagine what the lead actors were thinking when they were told this is what's going to happen and then this is also going to happen.
    But then again movies like Come Undone, Blue is the Warmest Color, Three Dancing Slaves (all French Language).. maybe it's no big deal at all and there are just directors and circles of actors that only commit to filming this genre.

    If I may spoiler some other things about this film:

    I watched a movie over the weekend by TLA Releasing called "In Bloom." Spoiler for size


    A very watchable film regardless of all the issues I had with it.
    I'm sure someone else will come away from it with a completely different set of frustrations with the characters or maybe none at all.

    Apparently HBO is playing an documentary about oppression and imprisonment of LGBT people in Russia. I will watch it, eventually. i just can't right now. Not in the head space for it at this point, especially after how much the Pussy Riot documentary pissed me off. Better be glad I'm not president, we'd be in a very Cold War over getting those girls out of Siberian work camps.

    Yes it is one of my favorite books. It guts me every time I read it. I would also recommend Another Country by James Baldwin. What an amazing writer he was.

    Thanks, .chris. I've had If Beale Street Could Talk sitting on my bookshelf since the summer. I should get to checking out his other books.

    I've been instagramming a lot of my gay comics and gay themed art and/or art produced by gays and lesbians. Been able to meet with some of my favorite artists this way. If you want a peek, my IG handle is la_saguesera

    Armistead Maupin recently tweeted that he is in talks for a new Tales of the City miniseries. Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis are attached to it. I am a HUGE fan of the books / miniseries. I am overjoyed by this news.
