Danke to hedy for reminding me about Queer Soup.
Date: July 20th, 2005 (Wednesday)Gee, i guess i don’t need to ask my dad to tape The Inside since FOX is showing the 2-hour premiere of So You Think You Can Dance instead. Boo. [Edit: TVGuide has an episode listed for next Wednesday, though, which comforts me.]
Time: 7:30 PM
Event: Summer Simmer: Queer Soup's cooking up this latest endeavor "HOME" delves into a world of drag kings, transgenderism and religion (a world not unlike Boston). Lulu's ready to graduate from seminary following in her grandfather's footsteps when her world is shaken up by a death-bed revelation. Join us for a journey into four lives never allowed to leave the stage. Discussion and cookies to follow the reading.
Location: Boston Playwrights' Theater, 949 Commonwealth Ave, Boston
The new Serenity trailer? Far too spoilery for my taste. Yeah i know i refused to see the first trailer, and i am still glad that i saw the images for the first time in the movie, but this trailer feels like it gives away too much, too many plot points, while the first one mostly just gave you a feel for what the movie would be like. Admittedly, i was absolutely gonna see the movie without need of any prompting from a trailer whereas people who aren't already Firefly fans would need additional prompting. Though i'm not sure how well either trailer works for selling the movie to people who don't already know the show. (And of course i think everyone should watch the series first and then watch the movie.) [Edit: Love this article pimping Firefly. link via justhuman]

Joe’s reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and is so far away from the culture as to not know of the Americanisation brouhaha, though to my delight he said he actually consciously wondered whether the book had been Americanized.
He is also a darling and knows me so well. Excerpt from our AIM conversation last night:
[Joe]: btw -- do you like Gertrude Stein?
[Joe]: I know that's a loaded question
[Joe]: I probably should ask is there any GS that you like and if so, what is it
