My Arm’s Been Banded: Pride Film Festival Night 1

Even though my birthday’s not quite here, yet, Mateo and Chaz have already given me my birthday present: a weekend pass to this year’s Pride Film Festival in Bloomington, Indiana.

Thus the timing of this trip to the States has worked out magnificently and instead of finding myself looking for things to do on the […]

Weekend Plans

The Buskirk Chumley Indiana Theater, Bloomington

This weekend is the Pride Film Festival here in Bloomington, and I am going every single night!

After figuring out how to navigate the festival’s calendar I realized that I’ve already seen two of the films: Patrick 1.5 and Coming Out.

The former I watched with my Pseudo […]

Classy Cinemas

#1 Screen

Since moving to Weimar, I’ve always known Weimar to have two movie theaters: a branch of the national theater chain, Cinestar, and a local cinema, mon ami. The former specializes in the wide Hollywood releases, the later specializes in… err… honestly I no longer remember, I think foreign films.

After a local […]

Brokeback Mountain Redux

I’ll be the first to admit that I rewatched Brokeback Mountain last week because of my impending trip to Wyoming, but to say that the film is Wyoming related would be like saying that the best way to prepare for visiting Pittsburgh is to watch the Queer as Folk.

All of that aside, Brokeback Mountain […]

Wünderbar Brüno

First things first: I haven’t read any reviews of Brüno, the film. I have, awhile back, read criticism of Brüno, in general. This means that the specülative things I am aboüt to püt forth are exactly that: specülation.

Second things second: The film is absolütely positively hilarioüs to the point where ones sides coüld start […]

Angels with Filthy Souls

Now admittedly I haven’t had as much time to sit in front of the television and watch stuff as I had originally planned, but two things intervened.

First, I popped over to the UK for a friend’s going away party and secondly, I’ve been cat sitting.

Admittedly, I have been watching “Dead Like Me” whilst […]

Adios Denver

Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver

It’s been a great week in Denver.

Unfortunately in less than 24 hours I will be winging my way east toward Old Europe, leaving behind my family for the land of good bread.

Whilst in Denver, not only did I buy five pair of blue jeans, I also picked […]

Thankful for Milk

Now Showing!

One thing I am especially thankful for this year is the fact that I was in the States on the opening day for Gus van Sant’s newest film, Milk. Seeing the film reminded me of the many thanks I owe my gay forbearers.

Yesterday I found myself outside the Mayan box-office window […]

Makin’ Porn

One of my few American weaknesses that I’ve managed to retain in Germany is my subscription to Rolling Stone.

Not that it’s easy—I have a $99 lifetime subscription that is valid only in the States, so I must rely upon a friend to receive the magazine and then to forward it to me a few […]

The Hunt

It’s been a long time since I’ve watched The Hunt for Red October.

Yesterday I found a copy on sale for 5.99€
