Disclaimer: The following is purely fan fic and should be treated as such. The wild delusions of Michael Troy are intended for nothing more than a quick guffaw.
The DC Universe has gone kaput yet again, and this time the finger on the trigger of the gun is pointing to the past. The DCU is born again in the '70s. Meet the revised heroes in the demented eyes of Michael Troy in the days of disco, free love, and killer dance beats.
Dust off your bell bottoms and enjoy!
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).

When you are given the assignment of interviewing Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum for Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike, honestly, it’s not a tough assignment. The actors play male strippers and wear very little clothing in this often dark portrayal of a lifestyle that may seem cheesy onstage, but it is fraught with its own demons. You can tell the guys had a lot of fun on set and during their requisite “Stripper Camp” before filming began, because Tatum swears that the moves from Magic Mike are responsible for McConaughey’s recent nuptials.
Take a look at the iVillage interview here:
Magic Mike opens in theatres today, June 29th, nationwide.

Lizzie Borden took an axe,
And, gave her mother 40 whacks.
When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41.
And, Abraham Lincoln? What did he do when he picked up a silver-laden hatchet? Well, open a can of good old fashioned whoop @$$ and annihilate a bunch of vampires while ending slavery and The Civil War, all at the same time. Or, at least that is what the new film Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, directed by Timur Bekmambetov and based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, would have you believe.
A few episodes into the series, all of you fellow Falling Skies fans are nearly caught up with me in enjoying this exciting season. Those of you who know me know I work very closely with the Falling Skies cast, and it was a pleasure and a blast to interview my friend (online and off), Mr. Connor Jessup. Connor plays Ben Mason on Falling Skies, a character who spent most of last season separated from his family, only to step up into the main show spotlight this season. The studio has some amazing things planned for Ben this season, and below is a transcript of my interview with the man behind the middle Mason boy, if you'd like to learn more about him. -N
