Some of the most interesting characters in classic fairy tales (many of which have been translated into Disney films) are the “evil” queens, sorceresses, and crones who are at odds with the precious heroines. For example, in the upcoming film, “Snow White and the Huntsman,” Charlize Theron’s evil Queen Ravenna is so delightfully dark yet glamorous, that we’re already asking, “Uh, Snow White, who?” Seriously, characters like Ravenna, Cinderella’s evil step-mother, the sea witch from “The Little Mermaid,” Maleficent in “Sleeping Beauty,” and Gothel in “Rapunzel” are what give fairy tales their edge — but the question is, which one are you most like?

My favorite thing about the trailer for “Harmless,” a Christian propaganda/horror movie about the evils of porn, is that this fictional family is being terrorized by a box of porn. Now, let’s just pretend that I actually thought porn was metaphorically evil enough to make a horror film about — I would be far more terrified by the seemingly limitless array of pornography available via the internet, not a little ol’ box of VHS tapes.

If you watched Willam Belli on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” this season, you noticed two things: one, he is an incredibly talented and beautiful performer; and two, he was smart enough to be the bitchiest, most ego-centric drag queen in the room. After all, reality TV viewers may love Miss Congeniality (Latrice Royale, in this case), but the cameras love drama.
I caught up with Willam just before the finale event for a series of more serious videos about politics and bullying, but you can’t keep the performer behind “Love You Like A Big Schlong” or “Chow Down (At Chick-fil-A)” from cracking wise. What you can, however, get is the lyricist behind “The Vagina Song to respond to charges of misogyny and transphobia … once you explain what “misogyny” means. [YouTube] Keep reading »
Winona and I recently made a very important discovery: There is no foul mood that can’t be cured by a ’90s dance anthem. It’s like the music of the decade was specifically created with funk-busting in mind. Whenever you’re having a crap day, all you really need to do is find the appropriate ’90s tune to lift your spirits and help you get your head straight.
