Isabella Rossellini on Joy, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Blue Velvet drag.

“They do me in drag in Blue Velvet. I had a friend who was gay who died, unfortunately, and he would go out on Halloween and dress up like me. I had a Blue Velvet robe, and I had my wig for a while, and he would borrow it every year.”


Here’s the couch gag from Sunday’s episode of The Simpsons, which combines Miami Vice and every ’80s action movie ever made.
 


That’s one hell of a smile.

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 and bisexual celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Paul Winfield

Closing out our week with Paul, he won an Emmy for a guest appearance on Picket Fences, narrated 94 episodes of the A&E series City Confidential, and continued to work up until his death from a heart attack in 2004, two years after his partner of 30 years passed away.

He will forever have a special place in the Trek universe, having starred as Starfleet Captain Clark Terrell in Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, and most memorably, in the beloved fan favorite Next Generation episode “Darmok.”
 


Three years ago I presented my personal favorite Briefs list, The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s, and because if there’s one thing Hollywood has taught us, it’s that sequels and reboots and remakes are ALWAYS better then the original, we’re going to the well again with The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s Part 2: The Even More Forgotten

We’ll be spotlighting 100 more of the greatest minor hits of the decade, the songs you don’t hear on any 80’s nostalgia show. Songs that missed the top ten, or top twenty … or top forty. Hopefully these forgotten gems may ring a long dormant bell, or for younger readers, provide a pop music history lesson.

At #32 is “Murphy’s Law” by Cheri.

The duo of American Rosalind Hunt and Canadian Lise Cullerier only hit the Hot 100 once, but it was with an irresistible slice of post-disco dance funk. It squeaked into the the top 40 in July 1982, peaking at #39.
