First, a word about last night's first read-through for the JTMF production of Paul Rudnick's The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told. In a word: brilliant. Rarely have I seen a cast so instantly 'get' a play. They laughed at every joke; they teared up at every poignant moment and they applauded when it was all done. For a director, a first read like this is almost as good as sex. Afterwards, most of us headed out to the local spot for a few drinks and bonded. This is going to be one hell of a show, folks. I only wish all of you could see it.
Is it possible to fall in love with nine people all at the same time? The answer (at least for this director) is a resounding "Yes!" We're planning on inviting the author to attend. I hope he does, because I think he'd be as thrilled with this cast as I am.
Next, several members of the Israeli Army got together and made his video for the Samwell song "What What (In the Butt)." It's both hilarious and a little sexy, though I don't get why they pixellated fully-clothed men simulating sex.
And finally, here's a trailer for Humpday, director Lynn Shelton's story about two straight friends who decide to make a gay porn film.
So tell me, if you were in desperate need of money (ala Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno), would you? I know that if I had the body for it, I'd be out there getting paid to have sex. Is there someone you'd be willing to make a porno with? Or maybe you've made your own private videos... What would you do if they were leaked on line, like Paris Hilton, Rob Lowe and Pamela Anderson (none of whom seem to have suffered because of it)? Would you get your kink on for the camera?
