Lesbian double bill at the movies – The Kids are all right and The Girl who played with Fire

published: July, 25, 2010 Categories // Arts and Entertainment

I remember when I saw the first film about HIV , Philapdelphia , and then the first film about with a woman with HIV played by Mary Louise Parker.

I remember when I saw the first film about HIV , Philapdelphia , and then the first film about with a woman with HIV played by Mary Louise Parker. In both cases I was so relieved to see myself up there that I forgave almost every flaw in the films ( there were more in the latter than the former.) I can only write these reviews from my vantage point of a straight woman who wants to see good films with good stories and good acting. In one case I did and in one case I didn’t. I did not think

Review of Dinner for Schmucks, Ramona and Beezus and I am love-August 4th 2010

published: August, 04, 2010 Categories // Arts and Entertainment

I loved Dinner for Schmucks. I generally don’t like slapstick comedy. It relies too much on making fun of other people’s failings, weaknesses and disabilities.

One hit and two near misses I loved Dinner for Schmucks. I generally don’t like slapstick comedy. It relies too much on making fun of other people’s failings, weaknesses and disabilities. This movie does too but the “butts” of the jokes, so to speak, are corporate businessmen. No problem there. The jokes are suitably silly and the gags hilarious. Steve Carrell is a very funny guy, no doubt. Just go and get your endorphins jiggling.   Ramona and Beezus The young girl who pl

It's finally Spring and I have relocated to Toronto. Why? Because I am getting married and it was time for me to start a new life for the new year. The past few years in New York City had been really rough ones for me. The scene had changed into a popularity clique. No longer were there experienced DJ's headlining at the clubs and bars. It was all the new kids who had no clue about mixing or programing. Watching legends like Troy Parrish being pushed aside for lip glossed, rhinestoned headphon

"This Is Why I Don't Like To Play Reggae In Gay Bars and Clubs" by DJ Relentless

Often when I am working at a bar or a club, I notice that there is always some young kid (ages from 18 to 25) who will run up to the booth and request the latest Reggae hit.

Often when I am working at a bar or a club, I notice that there is always some young kid (ages from 18 to 25) who will run up to the booth and request the latest Reggae hit. I usually frown and then tell them that I don't like playing Reggae. Then I tell them that if they knew the politics and hatred that goes with that genre of music, they wouldn't be asking. They usually look as if I had three heads and a tail and then proceed to tell me that this is what the kids are listening to these days

I Am (The Remixes) Mary J. Blige (Geffen Records) The first time I heard this song, I was at a drag performance of Toronto's legendary Michelle Ross.

"I Am" (The Remixes) Mary J. Blige (Geffen Records) The first time I heard this song, I was at a drag performance of Toronto's legendary Michelle Ross. I recognized Mary's voice and hoped that there were some remixes. Well, I got my wish. I found two remixes. Erek McQueen & Nick Harvey both gave the song a make-over. The one that got my attention was the Nick Harvey Private Club Mix. He gave it energy without making her sound like some sped up chipmunk with cheesy Hi-NRG production. **** "Hard

“Do Fries Go With That Retro Hit?”

I dont get it. Why are we even spending time on some child who hasn’t reached puberty yet?

After spinning for “Vogue Night” at Gladaman’s Den last night, my fiancee and I were kinda lunchie. So, we decided to check out the new Hero Burger on Church Street. John thought that is was some kind of healthy burger place, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that not only did they serve great juicy burgers with amazing onion rings but some of my favorite retro tunes. “Jessie’s Girl” by Rick Springfield and “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar. And let’s face

Would it be rude to....

Would it be rude todedicate Jade Elektra's "R.I.F (Reading Is Fundamental)" to those who are not smart enough to figure out what to do when invited to a virtual wedding?

"Would it be rude todedicate Jade Elektra's "R.I.F (Reading Is Fundamental)" to those who are not smart enough to figure out what to do when invited to a virtual wedding?" Because most of my friends and family are back in the United States, John and I decided to create a virtual wedding event on facebook so they could feel like they were a part of our special day. We thought that everyone would have read the invitation and figured out that they were not actually attending a real wedding.

There’s a moment in the documentary “Paris Is Burning” where Dorian Corey says something to the effect of “We were trying to emulate Marilyn Monroe.....I didn’t realize I shoulda been trying to be Lena Horne.” while describing who the queens would do as showgirls on the original Ballroom scene in the ‘70’s. I was very sad to hear the news of Lena Horne’s death on Mother’s Day. She being a mother not only to her own children, but also to so many young black actress and perf

Relentlessly Speaking About Music.....with DJ Relentless

We have old collaborations trying something new. And we have some folks who shouldn't have tried it at all.

Rating System: No * means horrible* means you better get used to it** means there is something to like about it*** means I like it alot**** means I love it I guess everyone is rushing to get their tracks out before Pride. We have some ol' gyrls doing a comeback. We have old collaborations trying something new. And we have some folks who shouldn't have tried it at all. But I must say that my digital record pool is really keeping on top of all the new releases. "Commander" Kelly Rowland (Columb

Okay, I have been on this earth for close to 43 years. I have witnessed some historical moments on the news during my lifetime. The Watergate scandal. The wedding of Prince Charles & Diana.

ILL NA NA performing at Pride 2010 I wasn’t sure if I was gonna make it through this past weekend, but I actually did it. When I took the booking for Blockorama on Pride Day, I wasn’t employed on Sundays. So, having to DJ in the afternoon then run and change into my alter-ego, Jade Elektra and then back to DJ Relentless to spin until 4:30 AM was quite the task. But I survive. I’m tired as hell and in need of a good 48 hour nap, but I actually did it and am proud of myself. But I must sa
