I was interested to see the wildly-popular revival of Hair on Broadway because I think the gay and hippie movements are intertwined, as both really got started in the late 60s. While the history of the gay rights movement links the Stonewall Riots to the death of Judy Garland, as they happened during the week of her funeral, to me it's always seemed like the culture was already shifting sexually, spiritually and culturally in ways that demanded that homosexuality express itself more naturally.
In the 40-odd years that have passed since Hair first played Broadway, hippies have become a bit of a cultural joke, but a lot of their legacy is still with us: the sexual revolution (including LGBT acceptance), health food, drug culture, expanding consciousness in other ways such as eastern religions, and of course, the music.
So, it is interesting to see Hair through that lens in its current revival, as a snapshot of a huge cultural shift. Of course, if you could care less about any of that, you'd still be in luck, since it's just a fun time capsule of a show brought expertly to life with an exuberant young cast.

When I put "Newcastle" on, I figured the worst case scenario would be seeing hot surfer guys with not much else going on. And that's exactly what happened.
I don't want to give this much of a review, because this is one of those bait-and-switch gay movies, where it's marketed to gay audiences, on a gay DVD label, there's a bunch of hot guys on the cover, and… nothing much gay happens. If you mistimed a bathroom break, you'd miss the closest thing to a gay scene. And the gay scene there is seems to opt for a much different perspective than the well-lit, prolonged scenes given to the heterosexual sex scenes.
Sure, there's a lot of amazingly hot guys, many of whom run around and swim naked. But, really it isn't enough.
it's time for another round of "I'm mid-way through this paper and it's killing me!", folks!
i think i'm gonna be in a causal type relationship with this girl. more like friends that are close physically too. i'll see what happens when i see her again but that should be interesting. she doesnt want a commited realationship, and i don't really think i could either that this point. i just need someone to hold me.
theres a girl who lives across the country that has a crush on me. thats not going to happen though, for many reasons, distance being the main one. thats been stressing me out, to add on to everything else.
I made an Amazon.com Wish List
First of all, there is a new Christopher Guest movie coming out! "A Mighty Wind"! MWAHAHAHA! I'm excited and dorkishly looking forward to it! I saw the preview for it while watching "Chicago" with a neat friend I haven't seen in a while
So today I went to Best Buy to pick up my copy of Queer as Folk season two on DVD.
I know, I know, Queer as Folk is trashy now blah blah blah...
I like it raining and everyone else being annyoed, and laughing at them for being annoyed becasue of ssuch trivial things
I like people asking me out and saying, 'i would, but i'm gay' (on the rare occasion that this happens) why don't girls ask me out though? Damn them!!
I like finding out things from other people that i don't know that well, like what it's like to work at a call centre thing or whatever JB does.
I talked to my sister the other night on the phone, and she told me she'd come out to our Dad. He seemed fine about it and all, but he said the funniest thing when she told him...
