The reviews for Morrissey’s novel List Of The Lost are in, and they’re ..well … let’s put it this way:

“Do not read this book; do not sully yourself with it, no matter how temptingly brief it seems. All those who shepherded it to print should hang their heads in shame, for it’s hard to imagine anything this bad has been put between covers by anyone other than a vanity publisher. It is an unpolished turd of a book, the stale excrement of Morrissey’s imagination.”


In Defense of Stonewall

“Stonewall is a movie, not a piece of art. It is certainly not the end of the world. And as a piece of popcorn entertainment, it’s actually not bad.”


Matt Baume on why “straight acting” insults the memory of Stonewall


Looking star Raul Castillo has been cast as supervillain Flamingo in Season Two of Gotham

“Making his debut in episode nine of season two, Eduardo Flamingo is one of Gotham’s most dangerous hitmen. Killing for him isn’t just a job, it’s an art form. Armed with a spiked chain and an appetite for flesh, this rock-a-billy assassin will prove to be one of Detective Jim Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie) trickiest foes.”

Here’s Episode Six of Season Four of Where The Bears Are. “While attending Dickie Calloway’s funeral, Nelson (Ben Zook) can’t seem to muster a somber mood for the occasion. Meanwhile, the Bears question two suspects who both had strong motives for murdering Dickie– his ambitious acting understudy Theo Summerfield and Nelson’s own best friend from college Sandy Quinn (Gabby Sanalitro) who was devastated when Dickie stole Nelson away from her to move to Hollywood and form their Two Fat Guys comedy act.”
