Four Movies in a hectic life.

Sorry about my blog silence, but life’s been super busy at work.

In addition, my free time has been super packed with activities, to the point that whenever I’ve had down time, typically I’ve taken naps, read books, or otherwise vegged out.

That said, I did squeeze in four movies in February, all of which […]

Why I went to Denver when I went: Hump!

For family reasons I visit Denver once a year – the timing is always a bit in question – last year was October, this year also October – this year because Dan Savage brought the Hump! Tour to Denver.

Hump is, as he explained it, an accident: back in 2005, Dan Savage and a colleague […]

Movies I have seen…

Since November I’ve been to the movies four times – something close to a record for me. Normally I would tell you about the movies immediately, but I’ve been lazy, so you’re getting four updates for the price of one. This will save you from having to read my complaints about movie theaters (too many […]

Well now, that was Fucking Different XXX!

A week ago Sunday, I went on an adventure with a friend to an all-you-can-eat cake buffet at Hudson’s Bakery over in Kreuzburg (Quick Review: 8€, includes tea, great cake, do it).

Between the U-Bahn Station and the bakery, we passed a movie theater that I’d never heard of, Moviemento – and in its front […]

A Tale of Two Films: One Good Bad and One Bad Bad.

My last evening in Indianapolis was with friends and two movies: You Should Meet My Son! And MILF.

The first I found on Amazon.com by pure chance, and after watching the trailer, I decided to buy. The second was streamed over Netflix, and was listed both as a comedy and a drama.


A Mismash of Many Things!

I’ve had a pretty busy week – Actually it’s been a fantastic week.

I can only think of two “negative” things: First, I banged my leg into a table Tuesday evening –pretty hard—it took me 2 minutes of cursing before I could move again—and it hurt enough to noticeably bother me through Friday. It’s still […]

Bloomington’s Pride Film Festival: A few last thoughts…

I’m probably one of a very few people who managed to make it to all 25 movies that were shown during Bloomington’s Pride Film Festival and I’ve talked about all but four at this point.

So to mention them, starting with the two shorts: The Island was an odd live-animation out of Canada in which […]

Pride Film Festival: Let’s talk about the T.

I guess that I’ve been somewhat fortunate that I’ve had incredible exposure to diversity in my life and that whenever I’m presented with something new, it rarely throws me for a loop.

Like transgender individuals.

Apparently I’m oblivious to the social problems that face the Ts because although I lived with one I never really […]

Holy Cow! An Excellent Lesbian Film at Pride Film Festival

I figured that after heaping praise on Butthole Lickin’ yesterday that my luck was going to run out and that Saturday night’s feature film, a “lesbian comedy” was going to suck and that for 70 minutes I would be watching time go by so very, very slowly.

Instead I’d like to report that “And Then […]

It’s So Gay: The Pride Film Festival Friday Steers Queer

I’m about to make a claim that may or may not be true, but from my perspective the vast majority of lesbian films are awful.

I’ve suffered through Go Fish and The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant, to name two of the worst. Lesbian films are filled with women sitting around and talking with […]
