Sister Spit Coming To Brown, Like, Now

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 night. Sister Spit was founded in 1997 as a means

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” while protesting to Sears patrons at the intersection of Bald

Caped Crusaders In Town

The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property is in town. Yesterday a contingent of the clunkily-named group of Catholic extremists started campaigning around the state to remind us all about the evils of gay marriage.  They’re an easy bunch to spot, since wear red capes to do their protesting.  However, unlike

Shake Your Love On Over To Westminster St. Tonight

[youtube]gjy3XbxMW1A[/youtube] So, tonight is David’s big fundraiser, but if for some reason you can’t make it over to Nick-A-Nee’s, or if you want to party-hop or whatever, it’s also the opening of Gallery Q in the Westminster Street location previously occupied by Butterfield (which is in Wayland Square now, if you were wondering.)   Gallery

Fred Phelps Here To Tell Us About Baby-Eating, The Beast Obama, Claiming To Go To College, etc.

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 targets, and Phelps’s lengthy typo-ridden and deranged reasons for the

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. [youtube]haVqcPfeqKI[/youtube] See, this ad works on the idea that gay marriage is bad because

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 that other people had previously done much better. This year,

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 “Volare,” “Waterloo,” and “Ooh Ahh (Just A Little Bit).” [youtube]yOqtDtUEpVM[/youtube]

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, the mob, a scene that makes me not hate “Sweet

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 people that won’t let a little noise get in the
