“Whatever this is.” — New Web Series from the Creators of “The Outs”

Can’t believe I haven’t talked about this yet, but the latest Web series from The Outs’ Adam Goldman and company has met its rather significant Kickstarter goal. I’m excited about this for several reasons. First, I was one of the Kickstarter contributors and I nudged a couple of other people to contribute as well. Second, […]

“Submissions Only” – How’d I Miss This Great Web Series Until Now??

I am completely late to the table on this one, but if you are at all interested in backstage shenanigans, watch Submissions Only, the Web series created by Kate Wetherhead and Andrew Keenan-Bolger. “Backstage shenanigans” really doesn’t do this series justice in the slightest. It’s ostensibly about a struggling casting agent and his friend, a […]

‘EastSiders,’ Web Series Debuts Second Episode

‘EastSiders,’ Comic Web Series About Gay Life, Debuts Second Episode. I’m not sure why it’s “comic” in the headline. I wouldn’t call it a comedy. Maybe a deep, dark, black comedy. What it is, really, is just plain good. I’ve blogged about this before, but here’s episode #2 of a series you should be watching. […]

EastSiders – New Web Series Worth Watching

Take a few minutes and watch this new web series from Kit Williamson. Interesting story. Terrific acting. Look, I’ll be honest with you. I’d happily pay to watch Van Hansis read the damn telephone book. I think he’s a sensational talent — and I was delighted to see him in this. Like so many others, […]

I Want My GayTV — Web and Broadcast Series Line Beginning to Blur

(Jan. 7, 2014) — Tonight, the cable channel Logo will air a movie-length compilation of the series EastSiders. [Check your local listings, but it looks like 11:30 p.m. in the East.] So, what’s the significance of this — other than the fact that I’m a fan? Well, I think it’s because the series is at […]

Help Van Hansis Make This Series

Hello, Blogosphere. There are nine days left to help make the web series Ms. Guidance by making a contribution through Kickstarter. (Maybe eight now; I’m late.) WHY SHOULD I CARE? Well, you know I am very bully on making your own art happen these days. One of the gifts that technology has given to creatives […]

Looking: Pay TV Goes Where The Web’s Been Before

HBO’s much ballyhooed Looking premiered last night and a lot of gay folks were hanging an awful lot of expectation on this half-hour. Trying to be everything to everybody would be a surefire way to set yourself up for disaster, so I wasn’t looking — as it were — for that. I didn’t have any […]

The Straight Years — A New Website and a Look Back at How it Used to Be

Got this tweet this past weekend from LogoTV — Of course, I had to check it out. The premise is people who are out now showing old pictures of themselves when they were pretending to be straight — or simply hadn’t figured out how to come out of the closet. Back when I was a […]
