Just like the blacks' discrimination against the high yellers and the Haitians and the Jamaicans and the American Blacks, the CT Gay & Lesbian Film Fest is run by a staff, headed by Shane Engstrom, who practice the same discrimination against other gays who go out of their way to "try" to support the Festival, especially in its 25th year.
I actually sent emails in JANUARY for advertising and donations for their silent auction, and whoever they hired used the poorest excuse with "I didn't get your email" which, dated January 2012, I forwarded back to her...only to find out that my $1,000 worth (retail) of donations to the silent auction wasn't wanted, sight unseen, and since they dragged their ass, it's now "too late" to place an ad, when I placed previously a $600 ad, 4/c, for the inside front cover.
But because "everyone" including the director, were "too busy" to attend to their email, now the ad deadline has passed, effectively telling me to "fuck off" as the donations for the silent auction were also "declined" sight-unseen.
Hartford may be the capitol of Connecticut, but unless you have an 8" dick which is fat and cut, and a checkbook with no limits, they aren't interested.
So I suggest that anyone reading this BOYCOTT the film festival this year, regardless of what anniversary it is.
Gay discrimination within the gay community is wrong wrong wrong, but then again, it happens in the black community, so the "fairies that be" for the CT Gay and Lesbian Film Fest can pick and choose whose support they wish to accept.
Fuck it anyway. I've got better taste in film than them, seven years teaching in college, and more than a few degrees to back it up.
Clearly, these people have never seen THE CELLULOID CLOSET.
They might learn a thing or three.
And I'm dead-on sure they have no idea of William Friedkin's relationship between THE EXORCIST and CRUISING.
Then again, it's good for some people to live under a fucking rock.
X-rated doesn't even begin to describe this film. Nor does "snuff." Do you have the eyes and stomach? You will NEVER be the same. Trust me.

Where DO you go
when the record's over?
Another movie from 1977 which started a cultural revolution. I was a junior/senior in a homo-bashing CATHOLIC high school: Holy Cross High School in Waterbury CT. What a waste of money. Who's laughing now!

Knowing that I'm not a guy into listening to guitar players and vocalists in coffee houses, that's exactly what I found myself doing last night as I wandered the streets of downtown New Haven, looking for a place to have an (anti-starbucks) Cup o' Joe to fuel the darker part of my evening.
Surprisingly, Todd Kramer (ironically an Orangeman like myself – Syracuse alum) was tucked away in a corner, no stool, no amp, no backup band. Just him and his guitar. It was amazing. I'd heard about him earlier in the week from another Syracuse friend in NYC, and checked out his iTunes stuff, and was surprised (after I downloaded his EP ONE PAIR OF EYES) and I found a voice which really filled the small coffee house (great, by the way; BYOB, for those looking for a bit of proof in their beverage) without all the glitz glam and production of the "new music" these days, usually culled from AMERICAN IDOL or THE VOICE or one of the other many star
fuckers making machines.
Step out of your comfort zone (in my case, disco's resurgence!) and sample the local blend.
You'd be surprised who's on iTunes these days.
Todd Kramer. Remember that name.
His EP will quickly give you an earworm.
