Spider-Man 3 Trailer

The Spider-Man 3 teaser trailer has hit the internet(s). This looks so cool. I can't wait!

I never thought I'd be a fan of comic book movies, but the Spider-Man and X-Men franchises won me over. OK, actually those are the ONLY two that have been any good. We'll see about the new Superman. The reviews I've read haven't exactly been glowing.

Colbert is at the top of the homosexual agenda's list of people to turn gay. So, it's time for a very special edition of Threat Down; the Homo-sexy Edition. Brazilliant! [Queerty]

Womb environment 'makes men gay'

A man's sexual orientation may be determined by conditions in the womb, according to a study.

Previous research had revealed the more older brothers a boy has, the more likely he is to be gay, but the reason for this phenomenon was unknown. full story on BBC News

Dark Sided

Regular Malcontent readers will recall here fascination with Marguerite Perrin. The “Rev.” Marune is more than a little miffed that there are people who find Perrin’s hyperbolic rants amusing.

Marune, who wears trucker caps and women’s glasses that are too large for his face, focuses his wrath on late-night host “James” Kimmel, who — like many of us — had poked fun at the gap-toothed God Warrior.

In this video — all of which is worth watching — Marune spells out his grievance against Kimmel, then manages to confront the bemused TV personality directly in an attempt to save his soul, which Kimmel seems willing to trade for a delicious brownie.

If this whole thing is just a clever viral video intended to scare up viewers for a ratings-starved talk-show host, it is pretty brilliant. But there is a daft sincerity to Marune that makes me want to say: I believe!

Footnote: Musicians, and artists of all kinds, for that matter, have used their craft to make political statements throughout human history. Springsteen, Neil Young, the Dixie Chicks, et al are carrying on a very long tradition - and one that is particularly American. Why do Republicans hate American History?

Blog Lovers

Here's another group participation post. Blog Lovers is your chance to share some of your favorite blogs.

I'll start off with Made in Brazil. Brazil and all things Brazilian continue to be hot, hot, hot, and this site by a Brazilian fashionista who splits his time between Rio and NYC definitely fits the mold. He's obsessed with Brazilian supermodels (are they all Brazilian now?), couture, speedos, fotologs (apparently a Brazilian national passtime) hot djs and telenovela stars. Made in Brazil is also generous enough to share members only pics from the Brazilian zine Terra's "The Boy" feature. This month we meet Rafael Lazzini. I've never wanted to be a guitar so badly...

Ghost or no?

When this car ad was shot in Britain, they couldn't figure out what the white mist was that appeared alongside the car just as it clears the middle of the screen. What they found out later was that someone had been killed in a car accident in that very area. Ghost or no? Decide for yourself.

Bring on the Freak Show

Following up on the Southern Baptist theme, the country's largest Protestant denomination is currently holding their annual convention and guess who showed up. That's right, the batshit crazy wingnuts of Westboro Baptist Church, are protesting the convention. Queerty has video of an encounter between Shirley Phelps-Roper and a SBC pastor.

I haven't the stomach to watch it yet, but evidently she tells him "the Convention is a whorehouse and a leper colony that worships the idol of the U.S. flag, where the red represents the rectal blood of fags." In the words of Auntie Mame: How vivid.

Sordid TV

LOGO announced it's new season lineup yesterday, with four new shows, including Sordid Lives - The Series. Details are scarce, but Del Shores (Queer as Folk), the writer who penned both the stage and film versions of the story, is on board. Shores stated early on he was trying to get as many original cast members on board as possible - Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace) is confirmed to reprise his role as Brother Boy. The series is a prequel to the movie, beginning the day that Tammye Wynette dies.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, stop whatever you're doing right now and go rent the movie. It's low budget, but a masterpiece nonetheless. It's all about a white trash Southern Baptist family from east Texas as they gather for the funeral of the family matriarch, who died after she tripped over her lover's wooden legs in a seedy motel room. Starring Olivia Newton-John, Delta Burke, Beau Bridges, Leslie Jordan and Bonnie Bedelia among others. Below are the closing credits lip synch from the movie and a trailer (which doesn't do the film justice at all).





In related Del Shores news. A film version of his play Southern Baptist Sissies is in pre-production. Leslie Jordan will reprise the role of Peanut Leroy. Learn all about the world of Del Shores at www.seasonofshores.com

Update: Something is wrong with the youtube trailer. Here's another.

Was 9/11 a conspiracy?

VERY interesting video. Basically shows "evidence" that 9/11 was an inside job orchestrated by the Bush Administration.

They have some very compelling arguments that show the 9/11 story we've been fed just doesn't add up.

It's an hour and 20 minutes but worth setting aside the time.

Please Pray


Joshua Jantz is running for the Oklahoma Senate for District 46 in OKC. Here's a little direct mail piece he sent out recently. Place a hedge of thorns around the district??? Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

I pray the separation of church and state which our founding fathers worked so hard to establish can survive this extremist onslaught.

Josh says he would love to hear from you. Why don't you take the time to ask that he kindly keep his religion out of your government? I did. It was therapeutic.

Mystery Solved




"We’ve wiped the slate clean as to whom we think our fans are, but we do think we have more liberals and more gay men behind us. We have a gay hairdresser and gay makeup artist who are with us every single day, so they fill us in."

We love you girls too, and now we know why you're looking so fucking fabulous these days.

Jesus, Give Me A Homerun

This really makes me want to throw up.

I <3 Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin was on the Today Show this morning to have breakfast with Al Roker and discuss the premiere of the second season of Kathy Griffin: My Life of the D List. Kathy took the opp to nail Ann "Desiccated Cunt" Coulter, who appeared earlier in the program. Poor wretched Ann. Do you think she'd be happier if she just chopped off her penis? Anyway, watch the clip of Kathy and if you want to feed the troll, you can watch Ann spew more of her tired, tired bile. [Good As You via Queerty]


My Life on the D List premieres tonight on GayTV, I mean Bravo. Guess it's time to reconnect the cable...

An Inconvenient Truth


We saw the new Al Gore film last night. It's really scary to see how close to the edge we're getting. If the science is accurate, which I don't doubt that it is, the shit is going hit the fan IN OUR LIFE TIMES! I urge everyone to see this movie.

A Story To Watch


Today seems to be a politics day... Rolling Stone is set to publish a major story, written by Robert F. Kennedy Jr, outlining how the 2004 Election was stolen in Ohio by a high-level scheme. Story will be online today and will hit newstands tomorrow. Evidently there will be a media campaign launched in conjunction with the story. More. Via Raw Story.

Story is now online.

Good News!


Though it may seem like it at times, Oklahoma is NOT the most backward place in the country - there are at least four other states "ahead" of us on that score [explore the interactive map here]. But fear not, our legislators and Christian extremists (which are usually one and the same) are working hard to make sure South Dakota doesn't have anything on us. Time to fight back folks!

Hattip to Towleroad

Remember this the next time you hear an Okie talking disparaging about Texas or Arkansas - our two favorite whipping posts. While hardly progressive, both of these states are lightyears ahead of us on these social issues.

This scares the hell out of me
