Sister Spit, a legendary-in-certain-circles group of writers and performance artists, is in town today and tomorrow.  Led by the eternally awesome Michelle Tea, the raggle-taggle group of wordy gypsies will be hosting workshops at Brown starting, like, an hour from now, and continuing through tomorrow

There’s Always Something Happening Kinda Near Warwick Mall

Update on the Caped Crusaders report: On the 26th someone commented here, implying that he was a member of TASFTDOTFAP and that “gay rights extremists” had tried to run him over.  Three days later, the group claim to have been attacked by mayonnaise-wielding “burly women”

Right-wing loony/hatemonger/ABBA-rejector Fred Phelps is coming to town today, and thanks to the convenient picket schedule on his website we know that he’ll be at the State House from 4:45-5:30, after a full afternoon of Jew-hating at the JCC on the East Side. Other local

The Laughs Just Keep Coming

The National Organization for Marriage has a new commercial out, titled I’m Confused.  While it sadly doesn’t involve people puking black ooze like the Handsome Furs video of the same name, it is apparently very terrifying to certain segments of society. See, this ad works

And The Future (Of Pride) Is Electric Thirtysomethings?

Those of you that have been reading this blog since last year may remember my consternation that the Pride people spent probably an ungodly amount of money booking 80’s teen starlet Tiffany, a woman who twenty years ago made a name for herself singing songs

Eurovision Tomorrow

Tomorrow marks one of my favorite days of the whole year: the finals of the Eurovision Song Contest.  Since 1954, the countries of Europe have competed annually for dominance through the power of campy spectacle.  Eurovision is where many classic tunes were first performed, including

Gus, Who’s Coming To (A) Dinner(time Chat At RISD)

Fourteen years ago, Gus Van Sant made To Die For, one of my favorite movies.  In it, Nicole Kidman plays a New Hampshire weathergirl whose affair with the underage Joaquin Phoenix leads to all sorts of suburban bloodshed and hilarity.  It also features Matt Dillon,

National Grid Might Be My New Favorite Band Name

It’s Monday again, which means that it’s time to don your gayest kafiyyah* and get over to Wheels.  This week: LLOVE, Hardontron, National Grid, and DJ 11:11.  Trashy music, a really ugly bar, beer that’s not as cheap as it should be, cracky old gay
