Cattle Call: We bet there are some stories to tell

September 1, 2009
By

The difference between this and a regular cattle call is you only need a headshot if you painted it yourself. And if your head is a figure of GLBT history. The Florida Queer Arts Collective (which goes by QUACK) is looking for works to celebrate GLBT History Month. Details after the jump. <@jump> GLBT...

August 31, 2009
By

Thanks to OW’s Justin Strout for noticing that Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood Daily has gotten Universal to comment on Disney’s surprise buyout of Marvel.

First Shot: Islands of Adventure a smoking husk

August 31, 2009
By

OK, not quite yet. But there’s going to be a crater-sized hole in the place if the lead story at The Hollywood Reporter comes to fruition, and Disney buys Marvel.   So while the rest of America focuses on the more obviously thorny elements of the proposed deal – like what it means for...

August 31, 2009
By

Folks, I’m terribly sorry. A plethora of auditions have passed by unpublicized in this irregular blogging feature. See, I haven’t had a lot of time to dish out the excess, because Fall Guide is just around the corner and I spend nigh-every waking moment entering Fall Guide info so that you’ll be properly guided...

Just in case you were managing to get through your Sunday without succumbing to the feeling that everything you have ever hoped to accomplish is a bitter mockery of human endeavor, chew on this little tidbit:   Jenna Bush Hager is being hired by the Today show as an on-air correspondent.   You remember...

First Shot: If Six was Twelve

August 27, 2009
By

I can’t believe it took me more than a week to tumble to this, when it’s the sort of thing my subconscious should just be alert to — the way Rush Limbaugh instinctively knows exactly when a senator is going to die, or when there’s a Filipino tweener gigolo in the next room.  ...

Cattle Call: Your best “Arrr!”

Yes, the Internet has ruined pirates. All anybody wants to know any more is who would win in a fight: pirates, ninjas or zombies (and sometimes robots).

First Shot: Last Hauserman on the left

August 22, 2009
By

There’s nothing like a grisly murder to ruin an entire season of TV.   It was a rare show of probity indeed when Vh-1 announced it was yanking all remaining episodes of Megan Wants a Millionaire pursuant to the desperate flight of suspected killer/mutilator Ryan Alexander Jenkins (you just knew America would find a...

First Shot: TiVO is on my side

August 18, 2009
By

Having made its bones on the trials and tribulations of the Sopranos and Six Feet Under’s Fishers, HBO is looking toward dramatizing that prototype of the modern dysfunctional family – the Rolling Stones.   OK, not completely. According to Variety, what the network is planning is a fictionalized, comedic version of the memoirs of...

First Shot: The portal is open

August 15, 2009
By

Some odds and ends to help you take stock of your world this weekend:   According to Nikki Finke, District 9 last night supplanted the health-care debate as the most tweeted-about topic. Never let it be said the American public doesn’t care about weighty issues, especially if they’re allegorized a quarter-century after the fact...
