2 Girls, 1 Podcast ep#12: Bowling for Oscars

I was really hoping Glenn Close (R) would win Best Actress for Albert Nobbs though I do love Meryl Streep (L) as Margaret Thatcher. Both portrayals seem pretty gay.

This week’s podcast dispels some rumors, discusses the Hollywood Bowl drama and digs on the Oscars.

First we address a rumor about Just Out from last week before moving on to a couple “sports” related updates. Can queer community drama, […]

A weekend to use your Party Language and Slutty Heart for Leslie and the Lys, Oscar and more

Leslie and the Lys play at Blow Pony's 5 year anniversary Saturday at Rotture.

Friday

Slutty Hearts cassette release party – I’m not totally convinced of the hipster merits of producing an album on cassette and the only place to play them for me, and most people, is that one roommate’s car that still has a tape deck. But then they get an iPod converter and the party’s over. […]

This night is for them. There’s quite a movement incorporating faith with gay liberation and this is just the function to explore that.

The Cafeteria – Vendetta is a small […]

In the spirit of new contributor’s Nicole’s piece earlier today on GLAAD’s Media Award nominees I’d like to give a nod to all the Academy Award noms that represented for the homos this year.

Especially exciting are two nominations in the Best Picture category for Black Swan, a pyschosexual thriller which stars Natalie Portman as […]

Best movies of 2009

'Precious'

So, 2009 wasn’t a huge year for film but we do have a couple Oscar hopefuls. It may not be the shoe-in that we all thought Brokeback Mountain would be, but perhaps a little less drama is ok.

5 – Big Gay Musical

It’s big, and gay, and a musical. That alone gets it 5th place. Slow year…

4 – Hannah Free and Patrik Age 1.5

A Swedish […]
