!! OMG, that skeleton from your closet: Abdabs’ Top 5 Gay Movie Monsters !!


Abdabs is just your everyday gay, English, skeleton in the closet who’s kindly taken the time to creep out to share with us his TOP 5 GAY MOVIE MONSTERS, just in time for your Halloween movie night!
There’s much to choose from in terms of LGBTQ portrayed in the horror genre. We’re often portrayed as blood thirsty killers (not sure where people get that from, ha, but…) and it’s going to be a close race! Check out The Bloody Mary Show‘s clip above!

!! OMG, free documentary: Matt Wolf’s “I Remember” on writer/artist Joe Brainard !!

Screen Shot 2013-09-30 at 11.28.38 AM.png
Last year, New York-based filmmaker Matt Wolf made a beautiful documentary about American artist, and New York School writer, Joe Brainard.
I REMEMBER‘ is based on Brainard’s memoirs and you can stream it for free this week over on Mousse Magazine’s VDROME. (There’s also an interview with Matt about the film.) Some more info from VDROME:

I Remember is a kind of biography of the New York School writer and artist Joe Brainard, who died of Aids in 1994 at the age of 53. I say kind of because it’s also a visualization or vivification of his wonderful book I Remember, which is in itself a difficult to categorize work – an autobiography, let’s say, by way of intensely sensual fragments of memory.
Using found footage and archival audio and visual materials to construct his narrative Matt Wolf creates a memento-like reenactment of Joe Brainard’s poem “I Remember”. Composed by an ongoing flux of recollections and images, the film maintains the fast cadency of the Brainard’s text while weaving a touching biographical account of the American artist and writer.

!! OMG, leather-tastic: LUTHER is hitting the road !!


Roving fetish night LUTHER is embarking on a mini-tour over the next couple weeks, hitting hedonistic parties in three North American cities. The event is the leather-centric sister party to San Francisco’s Honey Soundsystem, Provincetown’s FAG BASH, New York’s Wrecked and D.C.’s RAW/The Needle Exchange.
The LUTHER crew like to keep their identities anonymous by wearing leather masks and business suits when they DJ, but they sent us a backgrounder elaborating on what the party is all about. Here’s the best bit:

LUTHER’s sound forges the dying aesthetic of your neighborhood leather/gay biker bar with the driving force of gritty Chicago/Detroit inspired house and techno. LUTHER’s live sets range from sludgy banging drum tracks to surgically edited dance-floor edits of bands often heard from the urinal of an Eagle Tavern but never on a 1,000-person dancefloor.

Basically, if you’re longing for a leather daddy poltergeist to emerge from your TV set and pimp-slap your ass into one of the club scenes from Cruising, LUTHER is probably your jam.
Check out LUTHER’s tour trailer above and their Fist Putin mix and upcoming dates below:

LUTHER fall 2013 tour dates:
September 28 – San Francisco, CA @ Folsom Saturday
October 11 – Montreal, QC @ Black & Blue
October 13 – New York, NY @ Hustlaball

!! OMG, who’s got $30,000 for bail?: I present to you the hottest grave robber there ever was !!

robber.jpg
I’m not even gonna post the picture of the other guy, because… well, this isn’t about him. This is about 29 year old David Ryan from Kendall County, who was arrested this week at Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago for stealing brass vases from the graves, ya’ll!
David was caught by police at the cemetery with a bunch of tools on his person (!), and he and his friend (who’s not as blessed in the hot department), are both linked to a series of other grave robbings in their county. David also didn’t come easy. He resisted arrest and tried to fight the cops in the cemetery during a lighting storm (I made that last part up).
Congrats David! You’ve won this minute’s award for HOTTEST GRAVE ROBBER OUT THERE! Now, where’s $30,000 when you need it?

!! OMG, haze/boogie/shade: Mykki Blanco is NOT a fan of Britney’s new single, ‘Work Bitch’ !!

mykki-blanco-kingpinning-video-608x261.jpg
Mykki Blanco is a NYC-based, poet/artist/rapper whose career has elevated over the past couple of years with the success of his singles, Haze Boogie Life and Wavvy. This year, Mykki joined Bj√∂rk as the opening act on her most recent tour, which didn’t hurt in helping deliver his music to an even broader audience.
But while Mykki may be known for donning a blonde wig, or poppy, pink bra when he performs, it seems that he’s far from enchanted with the state of pop music today. Yesterday, Mykki took to his Twitter upon hearing Britney‘s new leak, ‘Work Bitch’ to express his distain with a growing trend he feels is becoming common amongst today’s female pop stars: marketing aimed at the gay community (Known to marketing people as “The Pink Dollar”).
Check out Mykki‘s Twitter rant, along with Britney‘s new single, after the jump:
