Camelot

King Arthur Daze continue here at CdM as I finally watched Camelot, which I have never seen. I’m actually quite illiterate on classic musicals anyway, being a Bad Gay™, so they’re all kind of new to me in a pleasant way. Ironically, at the moment I was checking out, the video store had on the…

Spider-Man: Homecoming

I was obsessed with the Spider-Man cartoon as a child. I had to be home every day for Spider-Man (and then there’s the story about how my mom took me to Toys R Us to “Meet Spider-Man in person” and made her wait in line for three hours before deciding I was too scared to…

Twin Peaks: Episodes 5-8

I didn’t feel a need to write any more about the new Twin Peaks … until the incredible Episode 8, which was almost a full hour of beautiful, incomprehensible art film short on logic but packed with, as the kids say, “the feels.” The feels are largely what you have to go on in this…

They are spectacles of massive-scale destruction with the thinnest of pretexts holding them together. I cannot recall…

Queer Profiles: Alec Butler

This is my latest Queer Profile and one I am particularly proud of. Alec was born in rural Cape Breton as intersex. At that time, in that small town, the doctors didn’t know what they were dealing with–the words genderqueer and nonbinary were not yet invented–and he was forced to take hormones and threatened with…
