The Not-So-Wonderful WIZ Comments (0)

The-WizWiz trivia galore here

Last night, we randomly watched Sidney Lumet's lurid mess, The Wiz, a true failure of a film that is nonetheless fascinating in random ways. The most interesting part is its capturing of the NYC of 1977, when it was filmed.

Tumblr_m0sqwkTFCj1r31wv0o1_500 Tumblr_mdlnb7d25U1qiz3j8o1_500The movie works better as a collection of animated gifs.

With thanks to my pal Jason, check out this link and this one for some interesting reading on the movie, of which Diana Ross is the only survivor among the main cast.

Tumblr_lofpakltGm1qc4cp9o1_r3_400I'll give her (only) this re her perf: Ross brought plenty of energy to the dances.

Ann-Margret-outfitThis one sure cleaned up well.

This Profiles in History auction of rock memorabilia has some pretty incredible stuff that I'd love to own (such as the outfit worn by Ann-Margret that showed off her Tommy knockers so well) or that I can at least appreciate is wildly rare and unique (such as the Michael Jackson inscribed pillow begging for love).

Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

Statue Must Be Kidding Me... Comments (0)

Lady-Gaga-Artpop
This is not a "copycat" post. Remember, I pre-date the days when everything a popstar did that wasn't wholly original was branded as theft. I actually like seeing things in artists' work that remind me of other artists.

But this is a "this reminds me of something from the past that I thought was equally stupid" post.

I've never liked Koons in spite of loving modern art, and his Gaga statue—which is apparently part of the Artpop cover that will soon be revealed in full—does not move me into his column. Lifeless and ugly, and immediately reminds me of how annoying it was when Michael Jackson floated a similarly egomaniacal statue of himself down the Thames.

But maybe the cover will be saved by the overall design.

BTW, anyone who thinks "Applause" was a flop at this point is not familiar with Billboard, but I'm really ready for her to move on to one of the new songs that I really liked, like the title track.

UPDATE: Here is the actual cover, apparently, which has nothing to do with the statue. Do you like it? I know Madonna fans who hate Gaga will bring up the spread legs but remember: Madonna is not the first pop tart to spread her legs!
