More J.T., a homo superhero, and Cape Cod swingers
Tube: After a year of unfunny bringin sexy back jokes courtesy of late-night talk-show hosts and inebriated frat boys, many of us wished that Justin Timberlake would take his sexy and make a break for it. However, the Prince of Pop will take it to the chorus again at his Labor Day Justin Timberlake: FutureSex/LoveShow on HBO: proof that you can bring sexy back without the receipt.
DVD: Pick up the third season of The Office, featuring the critically acclaimed gay-themed episode, Gay Witch Hunt, where accountant Oscar (Oscar Nunez) is outed by brutish boss Michael Scott (Steve Carrell), who shares an on-screen kiss with office sociopath Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson). Still too straight? Then snag a copy of the second season of Prison Break. Our suggestion: the Prison Break drinking game, in which you sink a shot every time Wentworth Miller makes an effeminate gesture and indulges in lingering eye contact with fellow jailbirds.
Page-turner: Superheroes have always been like that pal of yours who quotes Showgirls constantly but swears hes straight. Supermans X-ray vision seems primed for late-night cruising in Chelsea, Spiderman shoots sticky goo at his foes, and Wonder Woman wears chunky braceletsthe evidence is there, but no one cops to it. Thankfully, you can check out Perry Moores young-adult novel Hero, which features one of the very first openly gay superheroes.
Scene: To kick off New York City's Fall Fashion Week, Radio City will host the star-studded Second Annual Fashion Rocks concert. Celebrating that ever-important bond between music and couture, the events lineup includes Alicia Keys, Gwen Stefani, David Bowie, Duran Duran, and Destinys Child (gasp!in their last live performance as a group). The burning question: Will we spot any resentful looks aimed at Beyonc? For tickets (and you'd better hurry), visit TicketMaster.com.
Game: Whether youre a seasoned swinger or a clumsy novice, we strongly suggest hitting up Cape Cod, Mass., where you can indulge your inner WASPiness and participate in the Provincetown Open, a tournament that hosts all divisions in mens singles and doubles.
