Way back when we let you in on "Fagney & Gaycey," the totes hilar and campy-to-the-max new web series from Planet Unicorn creator Mike Rose, and now the gals are back with Episode 3. Sadly we didn't get to this before Halloween, when it was posted, but it's still funny nonetheless. Cheers.
Any Bravo-loving gay worth his salt has become intimately acquainted with Taylor Jacobson over the last year or so (most of us just know as Taylor, and as kind of a neurotic bitch) on the fantastically, fashionistically trashy Rachel Zoe Project. What can we say? We adore Taylor, and have certainly grown tired of her whining about not being able to grow in her job, and finally the inevitable has occurred: she sent an email out to her contacts and twittered that she will be leaving Rachel and going out on her own as a stylist. We have to assume that Taylor will stay on as a character in the third season of the show, but maybe Rachel's going to insist that her new competitor doesn't need the publicity. We can only *imagine* the flare-up of vertigo going down at Zoe HQ right now. [Fashionologie]
UPDATE: Did Taylor actually get fired?
Some hot straight guys make infomercial for The Dick Towel. And yes, it is a real thing.
Alas we should have done our homework... this clip comes from "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia." We should have known the writing was too good for a random bit of YouTubery.
Since the straight press is now reporting on it, we might as well note it for the record that NY party promoter and impresario of this summer's "Home for Wayward Boys" in Cherry Grove on Fire Island, Daniel Nardicio, is the brains behind this whole Levi Johnston shoot as a means toward getting Playgirl off life support. The mag's publishers are still thinking that a hipper gay mind could breathe new life into the dying brand and they're banking on this Johnston spread to allow them to go back into print on a bimonthly basis. This is, of course, silly, because especially where porn is concerned, print is WAY dead. Who needs an old sticky magazine lying around when a whole world of cocks and balls are right at your fingertips on the interwebs, live and in motion, often for free? But sure, we all want to see Levi's junk, and this one last publicity coup will at least remind gay readers that Playgirl exists, and we're happy for Daniel now that Dlist has been sold and he still has this cushy corporate gig. He's reportedly been scouting hockey rinks and locker rooms for the shoot, which is awesomely appropriate -- and he promises to post photos on his Facebook of the mayhem as he picks up Levi from the airport TOMORROW.

After the jump, some naughty pics Daniel orchestrated last May at his Fire Island fuck palace.
In honor of this weekend's Mr. Black 2033 in San Francisco, featuring DJs from SF's Honey Soundsystem as well as NYC kids Sammy Jo and DJ Nita, we thought we'd offer up an example of Nita's recent work -- a little sound collage of a DJ set he did with Gant Johnson this past May called Mario Bros.
Homo-Neurotic brings word of the closing of one of our favorite East Village bars in NYC, The Hose. It seems to have something to do with the lease. A vigil/celebration will be held on the sidewalk outside tomorrow (Friday) night. We feel for all the NY gays who loved this place and who were planning to attend tonight's Muppets Take Judy pary, and now we have to adjust the Le Fag Gay Bar & Party listings page accordingly. The NY Press' Gerry Visco has some more details. *Sniff*
Oh, this is rich. Those persistent button-pushers Trey Parker and Matt Stone over at South Park have now made an entire episode about embracing and redefining 'the F word' as something not derogatory toward gays, and the sticks in the mud that comprise GLAAD can't help but be appalled. We think this is hi-larious; the only problem is that South Park's take on the word 'fag' doesn't totally jibe with ours.
In the episode, some bikers roll into town on their loud Harleys, Cartman tells them that they're all a bunch of annoying faggots (in other words, assholes), and the whole town along with a dictionary commission get in on the act of redefining the word to mean "annoying asshole on a Harley" instead of "gay person." (See clip of Big Gay Al discussing it after the jump.)
This weekend marks the one-year anniversary of a hot and happening little Sunday party in San Francisco hosted and DJ'd by the collective known as Honey Soundsystem, and the scenester kids from NYC dance den Mr. Black are headed west to help celebrate. In addition to Honey DJs PeePlay and new addition Derek Bobus, there'll be tunes from Mr. Black's residents Sammy Jo and Nita, and much crowd-working and posing to be done by NYC denizens Lady Fag, One-Half Nelson, Drew, Macky, and Nicky B. Basically it's going to be a meeting of the minds (and outfits) of the ruling class hipster/scenester fags of America's two great hipster/scenester fag cities, with some undoubtedly good music and a recession-friendly cover charge of $0.
Keep up with all the hot weekly and monthly happenings in SF & NY at the Le Fag Bar & Party Guide page.
What do you get when you mix drag, live video projection, balloon art, sharp knives, animal costumes, and REALNESS with a bunch of rapid-fire technological and pop-culture references? You get Big Art Group, in particular their latest touring piece S.O.S., which combines all of the above along with the talents of a troup of talented and hilarious performers. (Clip after the jump.)
Big Art Group was founded in New York by Caden Manson and Jemma Nelson in 1999, and they've been creating new ensemble performance works and touring them around the U.S and Europe (mostly in Europe) for the past decade. We saw them earlier this year in San Francisco, and they just wrapped up a performance of S.O.S. in Italy, so hopefully they're headed back.
We've already shown you the teaser for Bruce LaBruce's latest harcore-porn zombie picture L.A. Zombie, and we'll come right and say that even we think this is some sick looking shit. Personally, we don't like mixing blood with sex, or the idea of jacking off over dead bodies (see also Raging Stallion's newest, Focus/Refocus). While this necrophiliac/zombie porn trend disturbs us, we have to wager that LaBruce's aim in all this is a little more intellectual than Raging Stallion's -- which probably has more to do with envelope-pushing and needing to sell DVDs in a down market.
The full-length trailer for L.A. Zombie is now out (watch it after the jump), and we're starting to think this movie is an allegory for gay men's obessions with hot bodies, and their simultaneous devil-may-care attitudes, in many cases, when it comes to sex and hooking up. Why else would we see a guy decide to pick up a hot zombie hitchhiker (Francois Sagat), and not expect that he's going to be gutted and killed right after (or while) he gets fucked?
Little Britain funnyman David Williams went after DJ Mark Ronson's nuts and berries on stage at a benefit concert in London the other night, then he went to rip his pants off and ended up tackling him to the ground. While this is quite funny, we have to express a little bit of embarrassment about this kind of gay minstrelsy -- no man enjoys being aggressively molested by someone he's not into, be he gay or straight (and Mark Ronson is, unlike his little sis, straight). This all happened at the Concert for CARE, so maybe Williams thought this was all for a good cause? After the jump, a pic of Ronson's ass in the air that makes it look like maybe this was planned? (Of note also is this video of Williams molesting Zac Efron on The Graham Norton Show.) [Queerty]
Yes, that's right. For a mere $8, you can take in Monistat's bitchiness, drag king realness, and Margaret Cho's presence. Wwe're not sure if she's MC'ing, performing, or just dropping in. TONIGHT at Chaser. (Full disclosure, Monistat and Margaret are pals from way back.

The whole gay-for-pay thing is a popular subject, and one that a lot of gay men like to carp about -- particularly with the angle that no man who has sex with men could possibly be straight. But, actually, that's not really the case. Many veterans of the gay porn industry know quite well that 25-30% of the performers are straight-identified or bisexual, and that with the help of a little Viagra and the promise of an easy $1000 (or more in many cases), they're willing and able to get it in on with whomever -- including love of our lives Reese Rideout, who's married to a woman.
Anyway, thanks to The Sword and Queer Me Now, we have this 23-minute video to share. It's a doc produced by Here! networks about the whole phenom which aired in '08 (we think), and features some famous faces like Ken Ryker (who cops to being bisexual here) and Billy Brandt (same, with teacup chihuahua in his lap). Enjoy all the NSFW education, kids (after the jump).
We have "Web Soup" to thank for introducing us to Loco Mama, and now, assuming you haven't had the joy, we offer her to you. In this video, the dentally challenged tranny sings an original tune about a candy bra, harasses a cat, and dances aroung the backyard. As commenter orvillegreensburo puts it, "Most epic shit ever made." (You can also see Loco Mama out of drag offering her review of This Is It -- Spoiler: She loved it)
