Glitterati Comments (5)

The new issue of TV Guide is seriously trying to fuck with us, offering up Glitter starring Mariah Carey as a highlight of the week on TV. The writers refer to Carey as "one of our favorite divas!" and launch into a blurb explaining what Glitter's all about...as if everyone in the world doesn't already know it as one of the most maligned movies in the history of cinema (right down there with Shanghai Surprise and Swept Away). And you wondered why TV Guide's circ is a shadow of its former self?

IMG_7536Prove it!

As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.

Here are my favorite 100+ posts out of nearly 11,000. Please take some time to read (or re-read!) a couple and tweet or Facebook any you like.

In TV Guide (October 24—November 6, 2011), Joe Manganiello comments of his upcoming guest role on Two and a Half Men:

"Ashton's getting naked, so I don't have to. In fact, I have several layers on, which is a new thing for me!"

He was hired by Chuck Lorre to be the kind of guy who could intimidate even Ashton Kutcher.

In TV Guide (August 15—28, 2011), Jane Lynch comments on her character Sue Sylvester running for political office:

"She's going to run on the platform of 'Lets get rid of the arts and cut all the entitlements.' She's basically running as Michele Bachmann, without the crazy 'I hate homosexuals' bit."

Rock Hudson's Private Diaries Comments (9)

Img459TV Guide (April 18—May 1, 2011)

Not sure if you ever saw Rock Hudson's Home Movies (1992), but it was a fun and creative documentary that used scenes from Rock Hudson's real movies to highlight moments when his real-life homosexuality seemed to inform or vibrate against what was happening on the screen. Well worth a look.

Img464OK! (May 2, 2011)

The modern version is this collection of three images from current magazines, all of which seem to comment on the widely rumored homosexuality of three otherwise closeted stars.
