    The Kylie single flopped (number 12 in the first week in the UK). :(

    I blame the SERIOUSFACE arty farty video. Seriously who thought it would be a good fir for a camp, happy, MDMA-spiced club track?

    So now she has decided to go in the exact opposite direction and release a a very subtle fake-lesbian video to Sexercize. (she meant 'Sexercise'). It's rather desperate, I'm sure you will agree. Terrible track as well. The whole "Kiss Me Once" album is very disappointing. :(

    It will keep the gay fans happy though as the promotional campaign includes various video 'interpretations' of the song like this one, including male underwear models. (Still desperate).

    Isn't all pop music these days desperate and disappointing? It could just be that as I age, I no longer get the appeal. I'm a lot crankier and bitch a lot more now. *sigh* :shuffle: The video did however reaffirm the fact that I much prefer fuzzy guys over smooth guys; I don't like the plastic look, sorry.

    No.

    A few fantastic pop tracks from the last few months:

    Allie X "Catch"
    Linnea Dale "High Hopes"
    Tove Lo "Habits" ('I eat my dinner in the bath tub / then I go to sex clubs' is one of the best opening lines ever :cheer:)
    Zhala "Prophet"

    Same here but I think the main problem was the plastic faces and not as much the lack of body hair. When Marina did the same (frolicking with underwear models under the showers) for her video, the results were much more satisfactory. Marina & the Diamonds "How to Be a Heartbreaker". :swoon:

    Ok that commercial was beautifully done. Love is love no matter where it comes from. :swoon:


    OMG, he is gay? :eek: those songs were a big deal not so long ago! Good for you Tyler!


    and speaking of Tylers... :shuffle:

    Why is the Advocate giving that insipid little twat Tyler Oakley a public forum?

    In his column he talks about feeling old and wrinkly at 24!

    "So I shed it, at least for that moment, and decided 24 was going to be great. I decided to stop sitting in my birthday party hat, full of self-pity because of a couple more wrinkles..."

    but wait there's more!

    "Now, a year later, it took a bit more work to get myself back into the mood of feeling positive about my age with so many forces working to ensure I should resent turning 25"


    Freaking 25 and the guy speaks like he's 80!!! :scream:

    There were parts that felt uneven, but as a whole the movie was very good. Both Matt Bomer and Taylor Kitsch were fantastic. There were so many death scenes, my eyes hurt of so much crying.

    I watched "The Normal Heart" 3 times already on HBO. I thought it was exceptional. I came out in 1984, at the age of 22, and the "sentiments of the time" were very accurate. I have to add though, I thought much of the gay community acted as though AIDS would be somewhat of a "confined kind-of-thing" to the California/New York area. We never really thought it would come to our cities, towns and rural areas. We were somewhat naive and felt impervious at the time, IMO. I've lost many good friends (gay and straight) during the '80s and '90s. I'd like to see a sequel. There's still a lot of story to tell.

    "The Normal Heart" was devastating. :( Of all the highly emotional moments, I found the speech by Joe Mantello as Mickey Marcus (when they were having the board meeting) about as raw a piece of acting as I've ever seen...he just let it go and laid it all on the line...stunning...painful...real. :eek:

    I was one of the 3,210 who voted in favour. One of the few good things I did today (I had a really crappy day at the office).
