!! OMG, They Never Went Anywhere: The Pet Shop Boys !!


The Pet Shop Boys hold a special place in my heart not just because they rule but also because there was this one summer when I was world’s most homosexual professional housepainter, during which I spent about one-thousand hours painting condo interiors while bumping around to The Pet Shop Boys’ Greatest Hits in paint-splattered cut-offs. The good old days. 🙁
Although I’ve retired that particular pair of cut-offs, the Boys are still around, with a tour and a new-ish album– you can watch them perform their new single in the video above. The New Gay has a really smart interview with Neil Tennant, in which he discusses irony, the state of electronic music, and todays’ gays. Says Tennant in the interview:

TENNANT: What I think is missing [from today’s electronic music]– and I won’t name any names– is exuberance. I like exuberance, and I don’t hear a lot of that at the moment… I don’t think it’s irony culture, I think it’s cool culture. The idea of cool is a stifling one. It’s much more refreshing to be uncool. That’s where the fun starts, and sometimes that can then be cool. You dont want to be tragically retro, either. I hate that. Funnily enough, I don’t like camp. People always assume we would, but I think camp can be lazy…

The gay scene is so strong its stifling. I don’t think it’s particularly interesting. What is interesting is how much gay culture has become mainstream, but with the sex taken out of it. It’s been like this for ten years or so, There aren’t many of the weird, edgy clubs left, and there used to be loads of them.

!! OMG, it’s better than cold boogers on a paper plate: MEDUSA !!


Okay, don’t kill me cause this has literally been around since before I had pubes, but with Madonna busy collapsing her way across Europe I thought it was a good time to revisit Uptown Julie Brown’s completely genius MEDUSA: DARE TO BE TRUTHFUL mockumentary. Yes, I know you’ve already seen it. But that was probably ten years ago, right? Whatever. There will be loling.
As a 12-year-old just blossoming into the beautiful flower of my gaiety, I thought Ms. Brown’s TRUTH OR DARE parody was the absolute f*cking height of comedy. And you know what? Watching it, uh, a few years later it’s actually maybe even better than I remembered. Julie Brown’s Madonna voice– the nasal timbre and the clipped, precise consonants– is particularly LOLish/brilliant. Plus it’s prescient: MEDUSA was crucifying people on stage ages before the real Madonna did it.
Fun fact: A very young Kathy Griffin has a small but crucial role as one of Medusa’s backup singers. See her star turn and a few other choice moments after the jump.

!! OMG, It’s Brian the Tennis Player! !!

Picture 18.png
For day two of our award-winning US Open coverage, we bring you “Brian the Tennis Player” a go-go dancing waif circa 1987 whose hair looks like it came from a dusty corner of Mel Gibson’s steamer trunk. He gets almost completely naked, f*cks around semi-pornographically with a tennis racket, and– in even further eerie confluence with the themes of yesterday— looks a little bit like Jason Bateman circa Silver Spoons. (Except, you know, legal and everything. Probably.)
Beware: although it is safe-ish for Youtube, I’m putting it after the jump cause it’s definitely NSFW.

!! OMG, we take it back: Levi Johnston to Preserve His Innocence !!

MotherF! Asleep at the wheel again! No sooner do we mention Levi Johnston’s alleged upcoming UNZIPPED disrobing than does Gawker report that the former-almost-Mr. Palin will be posing for Playgirl instead!
Okay, so we got our information wrong, but at least we’ll still get to see Levi’s salmon bait, right? WRONG. Gawker also reports that little Tent Palin’s daddy will NOT be displaying his Great Northern Thing. That’s right: Mr. Johnston is posing for Playgirl but is choosing to disrespect his weiner-crazed fanbase at OMG Blog by keeping the dime between his ankles… and his undies ON.
What the f*ck? This can only mean one thing, of course: 8==D. No? Prove it!
(Also: uh, I’m too lazy to Google it but I swear I thought Playgirl folded like a year ago?)
UPDATE: I’m not going to do another post about this, because really how much Levi Johnston can one site take, but the plot thickens– it seems that Gawker’s report was incorrect, or at least premature. Luckily, The Advocate has a truly exhaustive investigation into the situation. It’s nice to know that even in this day and age, hard-hitting gay journalism survives!
