Since it’s launch, The Big Gay Read has captured the public’s imagination. From household names to more obscure titles, literally thousands of books have received votes during the campaign. Today, The Big Gay Read announces the winner – Tales Of The City by Armistead Maupin – and the rest of the nation’s favourite Top Ten Lesbian & Gay Books.

MySpace has a new rival – From Towleroad – AIM launched a major competitor to MySpace this week with AIM Pages, a new social networking site. This is huge, since MySpace is one of the top websites on the internet today, and since AIM is the widest-used instant-messaging program on the market. (from Gary – I’m finally just breaking up with Friendster, and now I have to deal with this!)


Am I the only person who a.) couldn’t care less about this new Superman movie? b.) is tired of hearing about the digitally-reduced codpiece? c.) is no longer fooled when yawn-zines like The Advocate suggest an element of homosexuality in an upcoming movie on their cover, only to refute it entirely in the actual article with the execption of mentioning that the director, and maybe one of the assistant production accountants, is out and proud?? Despite the years that have passed since its release, very little can be done to improve on the Alexander Salkind-Christoper Reeve Superman and everyone knows it.

  1. i’m actually looking forward to the new superman movie. from the previews i’m digging that a.) marlon brando as supermans pa, could not be beat and is still there. b.) the original brilliant score could not be beat and is still there. c.) the special effects seem to be more realistic (love superman trying to stop a crashing plane and the wing falling off…hello physics.) and d.) the previews give a peek at what may be an ultimate lex luther performance from spacey. maybe, from the previews, spacey will be the ultimate lex, just as nicholson is the ultimate joker, devito the ultimate penquin, or pfeiffer the ultimate catwoman.
