Violence banAfter last week's tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, it was only a matter of time before we heard pundits hop on CNN and MSNBC and tout the "Violence and Hollywood" angle as a possible motive.  A secondary thread to this is "Violence and Video Games," and that is also another factor in this case.  Many folks want to take a look at MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) ratings, because PG-13 films have the same amount of violence, suggestive scenes, and language that a Rated R film did ten years ago.  Has violence in Hollywood movies escalated?  Sure.  I would hardly argue with that statement, as torture porn movies like Saw came in vogue and sophomoric sex humor encouraged by the success of the Judd Apatow movies grew.  I think we have become accustomed to tolerating more in our PG-13 movies as trends and social mores have changed.

 

Celebrity Baby BumpIn the last few years, our country has endured a rough economy, layoffs, and a weak real estate market, but not in Hollywood. When a female star's career is waning, there is one key thing she can do to revive interest in her cooling career: get pregnant.  A baby bump has become a hot commodity in Hollywood and here are the ways a star can make money from having a baby:

WWGRANDDAUGHTER MTBy: Michael Fitzgerald Troy


With all of the shocking revelations Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang have been bestowing on everyone's favorite Amazon over in the best thing since sliced bread, DC New 52's Wonder Woman, I wondered (pun intended!) what in great Gaea's girdle Wonder Woman's granddaughter thought of all of the hullabaloo? Okay, so Christie Marston isn't really Wonder Woman's granddaughter, but she is the granddaughter of Wonder Woman's father, or creator rather, William Moulton Marston.  Wonder Woman hit the scene in 1941 as a result of Marston wanting to create a positive role model for everyone - boys, girls, men, and women - thus, Wonder Woman was born.  Marston was also the creator of the first lie detector test. I mention these nuggets as I feel they bear great relevance on the Amazon with a gilded lasso, a gift from the gods that compels whomever be bound by it to tell the truth.
  It is no secret that I am a huge Wonder Woman fan. Ironically, my last name has no connection to Wonder Woman's wayward sister, Donna Troy.  Christie was kind enough to answer a few of my questions regarding my lifelong idol.

Going Gaga Digital MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy



After seeing a copy of Michael Fitzgerald Troy's pop culture mash-up tribute comic book Going Gaga! at Comic-Con this year, Mother Monster tweeted, "So Cool! Someone found this at Comic-Con. Can I buy it pleasssee!!!"  The tweet heard 'round the world; Facebook and Twitter started blowing up in a man hunt for Michael Troy, as little, devoted "Monsters" everywhere were clamoring to find the book for their musical matriarch.  After posting it on Facebook, Gaga talks and fans listen to the tune of 72,0000 plus "likes." Further proving the power of Twitter, the story of Lady Gaga's comic book endorsement spread to the likes of MTV Style, Gaystar News, and several news outlets in Italy! (Ciao, Gaga!)

The bad news is that the small print run book has sold out.  The good news is that the book is now available for digital download for the discount price of only $1.99 via Mydigitalcomics.com.  And, another print run of the book is being planned.

Happy Anniversa-Con MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy




The cutest couple I know and the heart and soul of Fanboy Comics could only be cuter if they had their honeymoon at Comic-Con.

Oh, wait . . . they did!  Happy Anniversa-Con, guys!

 

 

Marten WeberMostly known for writing intelligent, gay erotica, Marten Weber dips his toe in the geek pool with his first science fiction novel, Bodensee.  A decided departure from the "Papi Porn" of Weber's more widely known tales of Cassanova's younger, gayer brother "Benedetto" and a not-so-angelic fallen angel, "Gabriel," Bodensee is a thrilling, page-turning epic.  Described as "a modern mash-up of Henry James meets The Matrix," sign me up!

Cars LandYesterday, I finally hit Cars Land at California Adventure to see what all of the hype was about.  The rumors that it's crowded are true, but here are three tips to take with you the next time you visit the park.  I also included some fun photos from the day.  I will be doing a few Disney posts throughout the year as I put my new Annual Pass to good use.

Who's Who? in the New DC Studio 54: Gaylo.  In another dimension a group of alien sentient disco balls watches and studies human behavior, known as Oral Co.  After a gay hustler falls victim to a rough trick, a nosy member of Oral Co. takes pity on the young, dead ho, accidentally bonding with the corpse. The Oral Co. reanimates the amnesiac hooker, and they adopt the identity of John Dough to fight crime. The only problem is that the orb has a female energy, and the dead hustler is gay! Holy gender benders, Batman! A chick caught in a twink's body!


 

 

 




Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the '70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael's first published book, Homo-Hero's Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the "Divas and Lassoes" panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his "underground" status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit). Check out Michael Troy and Lethally Blonde updates here!!!
