!! OMG, the vision of Divinity: Jeffrey Schwarz interview !!


Jeffrey Schwarz has directed over 100 films; documentaries about movies, films on films, covering the making as such classics as ‘Footloose’ [this amounts to several films, obsessed much?!], ‘Bewitched’ and ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.
His in-depth documentary on the queen of all queens, Divine, premiered this year at SXSW and features previously unseen photos and videos provided by Divine’s mother Frances Milstead who was still alive when Jeffrey was collecting together his material for what he describes as “the ultimate ‘it gets better’ story”.
Schwarz sat down with Afterelton to discuss his dream of one day making a Divine Biopic, his search for film-funding sugar-daddies or “donor angels”, and remembering that John [Waters] and Divine, were creating “movies for gay people who didn’t get along with other gay people”:

“Today’s queers need to remember people like Divine and the people on the fringes who made it easier for the rest of us.”

True dat!

!! OMG, FRANCO-FILES: 3 James Franco portraits !!

james-franco-frederik-heyman.jpg

“Do you think that I come off as not humble?”

Under 3 chapters entitled ‘The Image’, ‘The Artist’, and ‘The Ego’, Bullett spoke to Franco about his various deep-throating scenes, his continuing curation of his public persona as the guy with all his fingers in all the pies, and the inherent backfire from asking questions about mainstream heteronormativity that Franco is becoming all too familiar with:

“Criticism can sting but not for long…If anyone wants to say that my doing these things makes me a jerk, that’s not about me–that’s about people reacting to me.”

You can read the 3 portraits in their entirety HERE, and view the accompanying photo portraits after the jump.

mykki_1033413.jpg
It runs true that a gender-exploratory rapper such as Mykki Blanco would have his/her feet heeled in poetry and performance art roots.
Mykki spoke to dazed about her/his early ventures into performance art [through the Paint Unconsciousness collective], an fetal love of ‘fringe biographies’ [Bette Midler, Oscar Wilde], and his early ventures into poetry which s/he describes as “Brothers Grimm turned on it’s head”.
You can read her/his interview HERE, and see one of Mykki’s earlier backing-tracked poetry readings of ‘From the Silence of Duchamp to Noise of Boys’ HERE.

!! OMG, God Loves Flags: Westboro’s friendly neighbour, ‘Equality House’ !!

slide_286389_2239161_free.jpg
Aaron Jackson, of Planting Peace believes “where there’s hate, there’s also love”, so went ahead and bought a house just across the road from the hate house of Westboro Baptist Church’s head quarters, where Shirley Phelps makes fashion faux-pas’ as quickly as she constructs those hateful placards of hers.
What better way to enrage a tangly hateful hairdo than with a gay-ass rainbow flag paint-job, so Aaron and co got to work turning a tongue-and-groove shack into a rainbow home-sweet-home, which he hopes will now become an HQ of new anti-bullying initiatives. This is what Aaron had to say of his new neighbourly gob-on-a-stick:

“It’s the craziest thing — and it really throws you off — because she’s the type of woman who calls you “hun” and “darling” She’d probably be fun to hang out with.”

Erm, don’t hang out with her, her faded ILL-FITTED BASEBALL CAP SKYPE HEADSET COMBO might rub off on you and in no time you’ll forget to brush your hair and your teeth will start to rot in your mouth [because it’s all full of basic silly shit that you keep saying at people].
I’m
just
saying.

“We’re taking the energy that’s being poured into them and turning it into something positive for the [LGBT] community…I know we have a long way to go in fighting bigotry, but we all know the gays are going to win. It’s going to happen.”
