The Gay Agenda
By Peter Schaus
FLICK: We kind of hate T.R. Knight for snagging Katherine Heigl as his resident girlfriend. Her chain-smoking, outspoken pro-queer politics, nervous wit, and status as a fallen Mormon make her the perfect gal-pal to throw back dollar well drinks at Feathers on a Wednesday night. So chances are we�ll be seeing 27 Dresses, her first shot at Julia Roberts rom-com fame. Ditching the frat boy comedy of Knocked Up, this time around Heigl stars as Jane, a perpetual bridesmaid who preaches the benefits of �hot hate sex with random strangers� and ultimately bags dreamboat James Marsden. 27 Dresses is now playing in theaters nationwide. Head over to Apple.com to check out the theatrical trailer.
TUNES: You�ve got to love Cat Power. The Florida-based songstress is the creative mind behind the hauntingly beautiful �Good Woman� and her take on �Sea of Love,� featured prominently in Juno, is one of the best covers to emerge in recent years. The singer, born Charlyn �Chan� Marshall, further explores her talent for reinvigorating classic songs with Jukebox, the latest installment in her collection of covers. This time around, she tackles Bob Dylan�s �I Believe in You,� Joni Mitchell�s �Blue,� and takes a feminist approach to Hank Williams�s �Ramblin� Man.� Jukebox will drop into stores on January 22.
