Anyway, the Frameline sched is keeping me busy so I have not been able to post anything here. But hopefully you are following me on Twitter?
I definitely have lots to share when I get back. And let me tell you, the San Francisco audiences are amazing! And very wild and crazy! I (and many other Programming Directors here) so envy this festival which could pack a 1400-seat theater at 2pm on a week day! And the women come out for the films too!
A few more movies to watch this weekend and I'm on a plane back to my Rochester reality. Sad and happy. But definitely needing some sleep ... which will be impossible with what's waiting in my DVR and the DVD screeners to watch. Ugh!

So check out the pictures of 8 of the featured hunks here and please tell me why these male beauties do not do something to control those eyebrows? Well except for our favorite reality singing competition star Adam Lambert, of course! I might need to forward my brow architect's number to some of these guys.
I guess it was naive of me to think that everyone has cable. LOL.

DLB has released an apology this weekend. “It is unfortunate that individuals and other outside parties are trying to profit from material which is clearly private” DLB said in a statement. “I have had the privilege to speak to people across the country, both gay and straight, on a number of critical issues including safe sex. More important than the embarrassment of this incident is the misleading message these images send. I apologize and cannot emphasize enough the importance of responsible sexual practices.”

PELHAM 123 is just mindless entertainment. The key word is entertainment -- it's a lot of fun! And you know that you are just watching a movie. I know films about NYC and a terrorist attack seem to bring nostalgia all the time. But this one for sure feels like just an enjoyable ride sans the emotional baggage.
I'm sure there are purists out there who find it blasphemous that a remake of what already is a great movie (as I was told) is even made. Let them have ulcers.

Now I can breath easy knowing that if Miss USA, North Carolina's Kristen Dalton, wins the ultimate crown of Miss Universe, there is no more possibility of Prejean taking over the Miss USA title (I know, it sounds complicated).
EVERY LITTLE STEP is the fabulous new film that follows the casting process of the 2006 Broadway revival of the legendary musical, A CHORUS LINE. Not only do we get an inside look at how hardworking performers do everything they could to land a coveted role, and get emotionally involved in the heartbreaking rejections and the joyous selections. But we also get a background on how the original show was born, complete with interviews with some of the original performers. For an even better theatrical experience, The Little is hosting one of their talk-back sessions after the 6:30pm screening on Saturday, June 13, featuring special guest Mark Cuddy, Artistic Director of Geva Theatre Center. Screenings with talk-back sessions usually sell out fast, just so you know.
And for those looking for a local connection and also an added bonus for fans of the better dance show SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, resident Broadway and jazz choreographer Tyce Diorio who was in the Geva production of A CHORUS LINE from a few seasons ago was one of the rejected auditioners.
From one of ImageOut's Premier Sponsors, here! and its sister company Regent Releasing, comes LITTLE ASHES, a drama set against the backdrop of Spain during the 20s and 30s, as three of the era's most creative young talents meet at university and set off on a course to change their world. Luis Buñuel watches helplessly as the friendship between Salvador Dalí and the poet Federico García Lorca develops into a steamy love affair. Did I mention that TWILIGHT's resident hunky moody vampire Robert Pattinson plays the role of Dalí?
Definitely two great choices for your film viewing agenda this weekend. For more information and show times, check out the Little's website.
See you at the movies!

Adam has been seen around with his boyfriend Drake LaBry, a Southern gentleman. We have seen him on the show seated with Adam's family during almost all of the American Idol telecasts. He's a cutie! Where can I get one of those?
I don't know about you but I'm excited to pick up Adam Lambert's debut album when it comes out in the fall (he also just signed a recording contract). But in the meantime, I can't wait to be at the Aug. 15 Idol concert at the Blue Cross Arena. I'll be front and center in the floor area. I hope to see some of you there!

Anyway, before I get too carried away, I was also very glad for BILLY ELLIOT's big win. I had to work hard to get my ticket for that show late last year and it was worth it! The show brought the "big musical theater" back to the Broadway stage. The three Billy's winning the lead musical actor award was a delightful surprise too. Although I only saw Trent Kowalik in the show (he did the show's featured number in last night's telecast), I did meet both David Alvarez and Kiril Kulish backstage and got them to sign my playbill and program as well. I am such an autograph whore when it comes to my Broadway playbills and programs. Ha!
I hope GOD OF CARNAGE is not closing any time soon! Need to plan my next trip to the big city.
By the way, this morning I was reading some of the news about the show and was surprised to see all the brouhaha about Brett Michael's accident with a descending stage prop. I did see that happen last night but I wasn't sure if it was a mishap. That stage was sooo busy and bustling with sooo many talents for that opening number that it was difficult to keep track of all the actions. It was indeed one of the best openers I've seen in recent years.
So did you watch the show last night? What are your thoughts? Have you seen any of the productions that were nominated? Oh do share.

"Enchanting! Endearing! Striking! Movie musical magic!" - The New York Times
Armed with a magical love potion and empowered by dazzling musical fantasies, struggling with his identity and acceptance, adorable teen, Timothy (dreamy Tanner Cohen) turns his narrow-minded town gay while capturing the heart of Jonathon (buff Nathaniel David Becker), the rugby jock of his dreams. Also starring Wendy Robie (Twin Peaks), Broadway star Judy McLane (Mamma Mia), Zelda Williams (House of D), and Jill Larson (Opal on All My Children), WERE THE WORLD MINE uses vibrant imagery, a first-rate cast, and innovative music to push modern gay cinema and musical film beyond expectation.
