Whatchamacallit 79: Latter Days

Latter Days is a film and – as above – a novelization of a film.

As a book, it is meh – it covers the story of the film, but this is a case where the film is absolutely outstanding. As a film, it grows better and better with time – at least for […]

Whatchamacallit 66: Borat Seksy Moustache

The above Moustache hangs, unopened, on the bulletin board in the kitchen hallway.

I got it while attending the Borat pre-premier showing (or event of some kind) in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, in 2006. I would guess, based on my November 1, 2006 blog post, “In Rotterdam,” that I saw it on Tuesday, October 31st, […]

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 […]

Berlin takes a starring film role, this year in Victoria

Late last week one of my friends told me about a recently released film that features Berlin: Victoria.

So I saw it Sunday evening – and while there are a number of impressive things about (like the fact that it was shot in exactly one take with one cameraman), ultimately I hate Victoria.

No, […]

Baby… #Berlin is Porn That Way; #glbt porn that is…

So Saturday I found myself looking at a gigantic picture of what was undeniably a man. With a pussy.

Yes, it was a naked Buck Angel, and as I’ve heard him described himself, while listening to the Savage Love podcast, he’s a man with a pussy. Never having seen him naked before (not my thing), […]

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 […]

Random Musings for the week…

Stuff that’s been in my head, and I want to get it off my chest.

Recently I’ve been remembering a conversation that I had back when I lived in Bloomington between grad students – we were talking about money and debt. As I recall there was one spouse there, and the spouse said something like, […]

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 […]

Girl on Girl Action: The Berlin Bombshells

The Safety Check, prior to the second period.

A few years ago I saw Whip It, and I enjoyed it – ever since then I’ve been interested in seeing an actual Roller Derby contest.

Unfortunately it can be challenging to see a match as the games are somewhat irregularly and infrequently scheduled. Furthermore the […]
