Gay - Erotic Romance
File Size: 927 KB
Print Length: 61 pages
Publication Date: February 17, 2017
Amazon: Silken Isobel Starling

Matthew Fisher loved being a dancer, but his ten-year ballet career came to an abrupt end with a knee injury. He had to find a new way to make a living, and luckily, his sister was friends with Annabelle Ramsay-Aiken, only daughter of property magnate Sir James Aiken. She arranged an interview, and six months on the job training saw Matthew stepping out as a real estate agent for Aiken Luxury Lettings. Now, instead of stretching at the barre, Matthew spends his days inspecting the vacant London homes of their rich and famous clients.
Losing his dance career had left a huge hole in Matthew’s heart, and to fill it Matthew began a Tumblr blog dedicated to his fetish for wearing lingerie. He wanted to give his followers the impression he lived a charmed life, so decided to use A.L.L properties as locations for erotic photo shoots.
One of his online followers presses all of Matthew's buttons, and a long distance, online Dom/sub relationship develops between them. But when the relationship suddenly moves from online fantasy to real life... can Matthew really submit?

Marshall     HD720p 93MB
Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. The movie tells the true story of his greatest challenge in those early days – a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman (Josh Gad), a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown), accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Kate Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder. Dan Stevens and James Cromwell are also part of the cast.
Judging by the trailer, this won't be a staid courtroom drama.

The Only Living Boy in New York     HD720p 97MB
Relationship drama about Thomas Webb (Callum Turner), the son of a publisher (Pierce Brosnan) and his artistic wife (Cynthia Nixon), who has just graduated from college and is trying to find his place in the world. Moving from his parents' Upper West Side apartment to the Lower East Side, he befriends his neighbor W.F. (Jeff Bridges), a shambling alcoholic writer who dispenses worldly wisdom alongside healthy shots of whiskey. Thomas’ world begins to shift when he discovers that his long-married father is having an affair with a seductive younger woman (Kate Beckinsale). Kiersey Clemons is also part of the cast. Directed by Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer, The Amazing Spider-Man, Gifted).

Stronger     HD720p 89MB
Drama about Jeff Bauman (Jake Gyllenhaal), a 27-year-old, working-class Boston man who was at the marathon to try and win back his ex-girlfriend (Tatiana Maslany). Waiting for her at the finish line when the blast occurs, he loses both his legs in the attack. After regaining consciousness in the hospital, Jeff is able to help law enforcement identify one of the bombers, but his own battle has just begun.
Doesn't get more Oscar-baity. Watching the trailer, you pretty much have seen the whole movie.

Ferdinand     HD720p 91MB
Another trailer for this animated family movie to be in theatres in December. Set in Spain, it tells the story of a giant bull (John Cena) with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure. Further voices will be provided by Kate McKinnon, Gina Rodriguez, Daveed Diggs, Gabriel Iglesias, Bobby Cannavale, David Tennant and Anthony Anderson. Co-directed by Carlos Saldanha (Rio, Ice Age 2).

American Assassin     HD720p 87MB
Second trailer for this action thriller that follows the rise of a CIA black ops recruit (Dylan O’Brien) under the instruction of a Cold War veteran (Michael Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by a CIA Deputy Director (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East. Directed by Michael Cuesta (Kill the Messenger).

Road trip

My best friend and I have a road trip planned for the second half of September! Sadly, he will not be moving in with me this year, because of the illness and death of a close friend of his that caused his dissertation to be delayed, yea unto the fifteenth year.

But! At least the road trip is happening. We're not going to have as much time as I'd hoped, but it should be good nonetheless. If he can get a couple days off work, we should be able to extend the trip until we have about as much time as we had last time.

We leave the 15th, and return either the 24th or 26th, depending on whether he can find someone to cover for him. I have offered to comp him for lost income (ah, the beauties of a tech job).

We are not going anywhere exciting. The goal is to check off the remaining continental states we haven't been to, aka the boring ones (sorry not sorry).

For him, lucky bastard, this is just Arkansas and North Dakota.

For me, this is Arkansas and North Dakota AND ALSO *deep breath* South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey. And DC, the only vaguely interesting place we're going.

My family's rules for states (or countries) visited have always been: flyovers don't count, but any on-the-ground technicalities count! My mom putting one hand/foot in each of the states at the Four Corners counts. My dad's 15 minutes in the Detroit airport count. Layovers where you don't get off the plane count! My friend's and my 15 minutes in a car passing through the tiny southwest corner of Montana between Idaho and Wyoming on the way to Yellowstone counts.

So we will be doing a lot of border-tagging. If we pass the "Welcome To" sign, it counts!

Here are our current plans, assuming he gets the time off work.

I fly to meet him in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he will have been visiting family. We rent a car and head off into the sunset.

We pass through SC, AL, and MI on the way to Louisiana. We were going to visit New Orleans, but given that he's already been there and the main attraction for me was seafood, and given how tight on time we are, we're planning to bow to my shrimp allergy and give it a pass, which will buy us another day or so for the rest of the trip. So we'll just tag the LA border and head up to Little Rock, where he wants to visit the Clinton Presidential Library.

Then the scenic route through the Ozarks, and a lot of weaving across the borders to check off midwestern states for me. I was going to just do this for North Dakota, but he wants to visit Bonanzaville ("a pioneer village with 12 acres, 43 historic buildings, 400,000 artifacts, and millions of memories. Bonanzaville is operated by the Cass County Historical Society, with a mission to collect, display and interpret artifacts relevant to the history and cultural heritage of the Red River Valley.")

Then we detour to Wisconsin, because his family has a timeshare near a lake there, and he coauthored a volume on the local history of the lake and the surrounding community, which delayed his dissertation by at least three years ago, and he wants to show me the area. I imagine it will be scenic, am hoping for good hiking, and will try not to get eaten by bears.

Depending on how we're doing on time, maybe a quick visit to Laura Ingalls Wilder's birthplace, in WI not far from his lake. If we don't have time, though, I don't mind, as the only place she lived I really wanted to see was De Smet, and we did the tour there on the big cross-country road trip.

Then south, to catch Kentucky and WV on the way to DC. We'll actually spend a day or two in DC visiting museums, and then we'll check off my remaining eastern seaboard states on the way back to Boston, where he will catch a plane back to LA.

Stay tuned for any impromptu detours and sightseeing we come up with along the way! (Last time, it was the fortuitous* realization that Niagara Falls was totally on our route.)

* And I do mean "by chance"--we passed a sign for a Niagara Cave in Minnesota that made me decide to look up exactly where Niagara Falls was, on the suspicion that it was near our route, and it turned out we were passing through Buffalo, so we gave it a visit.

For this one, I also have a swarm to choose from. Probably not as many as color-songs, though; I like lots of songs with numbers in the chorus but not in the titles. I think I'm going to bypass the entire Schoolhouse Rock set (I like all of them, but especially Zero My Hero, Figure Eight, and Little Twelvetoes) and try to stick to "mainstream" songs, or at least, songs intended to be standalones rather than part of something else. (Mainstream's in quotes because I have some filk here; if you don't know what they are, they'd be hard to track down.)

Christmas at Ground Zero | One Tin Soldier | Two of Us | Threes | Wind's Four Quarters | Five Years | Six Days on the Road | Seven Year Ache | 867-5309 | 9 to 5 | At Seventeen | 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover | '65 Love Affair | 88 Lines about 44 Women | 99 Luftballons ...

Wow, there's a lot of mopey in that list. I should pick something that's a bit more perky.
One bouncy cheerful number song, coming up. )

Consent: Bondage Tales Jeff Mann
Gay - Erotica
Paperback: 280 pages
Publisher: Unzipped Books (April 28, 2017)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1590210697
ISBN-13: 978-1590210697
Amazon: Consent: Bondage Tales Jeff Mann

According to the third edition of The Mann Dictionary of Savage Intimacy, consent is defined as ''compliance in expectation of being ravished while bound.'' Lauded by both the National Leather Association-International and Lambda Literary Awards, Mann writes stories--perhaps even true tales--that produce dangerous levels of testosterone, vigor, and seminal fluids. But the author's favorite trophies do not hang on the wall--though they are often well-hung--but are kept trussed atop the bed in anticipation of consent.

Country Jeff Mann
Gay - Contemporary Romance
Paperback
Publisher: Lethe Press (September 3, 2016)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1590212401
ISBN-13: 978-1590212400
Amazon: Country Jeff Mann

Brice Brown sings about loyalty and broken hearts, the earnestness of being a proud Southerner, yet his popular country music lyrics are misdirection because Brice has kept hidden his attraction to men for all his life. But when a former lover--and band member--goes to the press with the truth, Brice finds himself sick of all the lies and returning to the sanctuary of his West Virginian hometown. The neighbors who used to be proud of the local boy made good now turn on him. His record label cancels contracts, his wife files for divorce, and he finds himself disgraced and despondent.

But then Brice learns from a fan that there is a compound in central West Virginia run by a man who has helped troubled gay youth overcome their self-loathing. Brice takes a chance at redemption at the forest retreat. There he meets Lucas, the handyman at the compound, who simmers with resentment at his past, angry at how he sees his future will be. While Brice thinks that Lucas is attracted to him both men are suffering. Can they rise above the condemnations the world has given them and find something meaningful...together?

When I first saw a link to an article about the More Colors More Pride campaign and their new flag, I admit I was a bit confused. My specific thought was, “But the black stripe goes at the bottom…” because I’m already very familiar with the Victory Over AIDS version of the Pride flag. In that flag, the black stripe represents our being in mourning for the loss of hundreds of thousands of members of the queer community due to AIDS, and it is the bottom stripe on that flag because the idea is that we are determined to be victorious over AIDS, right?

Anyway, my confusion lasted only milliseconds...

Detroit     HD720p 100MB
Second trailer for this action thriller that tells the gripping story of one of the darkest moments during the civil unrest that rocked Detroit in the summer of ‘67. Cast members include John Boyega, Will Poulter, Jacob Latimore, Jason Mitchell, Hannah Murray, Kaitlyn Dever, Jack Reynor, John Krasinski and Anthony Mackie. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, Strange Days, Zero Dark Thirty), like Bigelow's previous two movies again written by Mark Boal.
Still not sure if Bigelow will do the topic justice, but it sure is another tense trailer.

Tour De Pharmacy     HD720p 17MB
Mockumentary - well, sort of - set in 1982, during a dark and fictitious time in cycling history, the sport's most venerable, time-honored race was marred by the doping of virtually all of its competitors. Riddled with nefarious characters, that year's competition was a hornet's nest of moral depravity. Through the perspective of five riders, the film gives an inside look into the grim realities of the darkest event in a sport notoriously tainted by controversy. If the running time permits, there will be appearances by Andy Samberg, Orlando Bloom, John Cena, Daveed Diggs, Maya Rudolph, Dolph Lundgren, James Marsden, Will Forte, Freddie Highmore, J.J. Abrams, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kevin Bacon, Joe Buck, Nathan Fielder, Danny Glover, Jeff Goldblum, Julia Ormond, Phylicia Rashad, Chris Webber, Mike Tyson and ... Lance Armstrong. Directed by Jake Szymanski (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates).
Will premiere on HBO July 8th.

Thank You For Your Service     HD720p 83MB
War drama that follows a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq who struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they’ve left the battlefield. Cast members include Miles Teller, Haley Bennett, Joe Cole, Amy Schumer, Beulah Koale, Scott Haze and Keisha Castle-Hughes. Directorial debut of Jason Hall who wrote the screenplay adaptation for American Sniper.
Difficult to say at this point if the movie is aiming at awards season.

Home Again     HD720p 97MB
Second trailer for this modern romantic comedy in which a woman (Reese Witherspoon) who recently separated from her husband (Michael Sheen) decides to start over by moving back to her hometown of Los Angeles with her two young daughters. During a night out on her 40th birthday, she meets three aspiring filmmakers (Nat Wolff, Robb Derringer, Pico Alexander) who happen to be in need of a place to live. She agrees to let the guys stay in her guest house temporarily, but the arrangement ends up unfolding in unexpected ways. Her unlikely new family and new romance comes to a crashing halt when her ex-husband shows up, suitcase in hand.

Lost in Paris - Paris pieds nus     HD720p 87MB
Trailer for the latest charming movie written, directed and acted by Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon (The Fairy, Rumba, Iceberg) that again puts the emphasis on physical comedy, style and arranged tableaus and has very little dialogue. This time they are playing a small-town Canadian librarian and a strangely seductive, oddly egotistical vagabond. When Fiona’s orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (Emmanuelle Riva) who is living in Paris, Fiona hops on the first plane she can and arrives only to discover that Martha has disappeared. In an avalanche of spectacular disasters, she encounters Dom, the affable, but annoying tramp who just won’t leave her alone. Pierre Richard is also part of the cast.
Now in limited release in the US.

Heathens Jonah Bergan
Gay - Young Adult
Paperback: 540 pages

Language: English
ISBN-10: 1521191425
ISBN-13: 978-1521191422
Amazon: Heathens Jonah Bergan

Well it finally happened. The world ended. It didn't happen the way anyone expected it would. No nukes, no pandemics, just a whole lot of rage and a whole lot of violence. None of us saw it coming. There were plenty of clues, but none of us figured it out in time. The real kicker is, I'm pretty sure someone planned it. I'm pretty sure someone did it on purpose.

I'm Holden. I survived. You won't like my story. That's too bad, because your world's headed the same way as mine. Everything that happened to me, is going to happen to you. The same kind of people that did this to me, will do it to you. They're doing it right now. They're making it worse and you don't even see it. Sure, I could help you. I could give it a try, but you won't listen. I'm not the same religion. I'm not the same as you. I'm a different kind than you, so you won't listen. That's why it'll happen to you. Don't say I didn't warn you. Don't say you didn't have a clue. Not when all you had to do was listen.

Heathens is a young adult post apocalyptic science fiction novel. Heathens contains some coarse language and violence.

Stealing this from [personal profile] kshandra. I decided I should blog more, and telling myself to blog more about Important And Interesting Things isn't working, so I should try one of those "blog every day" things. (I've never done well at them.) This time, I picked something easy and fun instead of something that requires Deep Thought that I usually don't have by the end of my workday.

So: 30 days of songs, which are likely to be YouTube embeds (but maybe not, because I have a great love for a lot of filk that's never made it to YouTube); some are likely to get a lot of commentary, and others are likely to be "here it is, end of the day... um, have a music thing."
