Earlier this week I gave you the lyric video for “Hair Do” from Richard Simmons. Here’s the official video.

Here’s the trailer for the direct-to-dvd Fright Night 2, with Jaime Murray vamping it up.

Here’s Robbie Rogers talking to Chelsea Handler about the Olympics and what it’s like in the locker room since he came out.

Via NewNowNext comes the trailer for Coming Out, which documents a film student’s year-long coming-out process to friends and family.

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT to … Jay Brannan. Wrapping up our week with Jay, last year he released his third album Rob Me Blind. Below you can see the gorgeous video for the title track.

Now, presenting … THE TOP 40 HORROR FILMS OF THE 80’S! Journey with me back to the birth of the Dead Teenager movie (actually, that began in the 70’s, so I guess it would be the Afterbirth Of The Dead Teenager Movie), the last gasps of the Italian Horror Masters, and the franchises that still continue today. Yes, your Freddy, Jason, and Chucky will be represented, but I’m also going to pay tribute to the obscurities that deserve to be seen. At #3 is … Prom Night.

Disco Death! Five young schoolkids taunt a fellow classmate to death (that falling pane of glass was just … overkill, literally), and years later at the senior prom, someone … exacts revenge! Jamie Lee Curtis has said this was her least favorite slasher film, but it’s one of my favorites. But I can’t quite figure out why. The photography is shockingly muddy (we’re talking Lucille Ball in Mame), and the characters are either forgettable or unlikable (i found myself rooting for Classic Bitch Wendy to get away, simply because she was the most interesting character in the film).

But there’s something compelling about watching these snotty kids get their comeuppance, and the ending is undeniably sad (if inevitable). And then there’s the fabulous soundtrack, which does contain THE #1 GREATEST 80’S HORROR MOVIE CLOSING THEME SONG. It’s called “Fade To Black,” performed by Gordene Simpson, and it reveals the entire plot of the movie in a classic power ballad. It’s been a permanent part of my iPod for years.

Congrats to chronomaxx, who was the first to correctly that yesterday’s Pixuzzle™ © ® was Damages.
