HarperCollins has announced a new book series about Oz, that will start with Dorothy Must Die. “In this re-imagining, a twister rips through Kansas and transports Amy Gumm — most likely inspired by Judy Garland’s birth name Frances Gumm — into Oz, which has been transformed under Dorothy’s tyrannical misrule. In a complete twist from the original, Amy must steal the Scarecrow’s brain, remove the Tin Woodman’s heart, and take the Lion’s courage. And ultimately — destroy Dorothy.” Seriously?

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 … Jonathan Groff. After Spring Awakening, Jonathan had a very busy time on stage, and made a memorable West End debut in Deathtrap.

And now we have the 50 GREATEST LOST HITS OF THE 90’S! I’ve often ragged on the pop music of the 90’s for being an arid desert devoid of fun, but there were bright spots, including these 50 songs, which should have performed better on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Like The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80’s countdown, this list is very female-centric (what can I say, I like rock chicks), but hopefully, some of these pop gems may trigger a long dormant memory.

At #34 is … “Passionate Kisses” by Mary Chapin Carpenter. The faboo Mary was a huge star on the country charts in the 90’s, but her music encompasses many different styles, from folk, to rock, to gospel and pop. Her crossover cover of the Lucinda Williams song “Passionate Kisses” was her biggest hit on the Hot 100, peaking at #57 in March 1993, but it should have scored much higher.
