The Gay Agenda
By Joseph Hassan
Monday, September 8: Some in the blogosphere have termed it �the single smartest move ever made by a television network� -- and we wholeheartedly agree. Rachel Maddow, our out-and-proud media darling and commentator savant, launches her new television show, aptly titled The Rachel Maddow Show (the same title as her show on Air America Radio) at 9:00 PM EST on MSNBC. The network has billed it as �a smart look at politics, pop culture, and all the day�s top stories.� Fans who prefer Maddow in listen-only mode need not worry: Rachel�s dulcet tones will still hit the airwaves on Air America as usual at 6:00 PM EST. In a recent interview with Keith Olberman to announce her new gig, Maddow noted that tonight is also her grandmother�s 93rd birthday. Not a bad gift for Gran, or the rest of us.
Tuesday, September 9: Today look for Knowle West Boy, the latest album from electro daddy Tricky, who shows that, as Out�s Jason Lamphier put it, �he has moved beyond the overcooked trip-hop trend on�an eclectic mix of reggae, blues, post-punk, and hip-hop. Always a sucker for silky-voiced divas, he even includes a snarling cover of Kylie Minogue�s �Slow.�� Knowle West Boy, which catches its title from the area in Bristol, England, where Tricky grew up, is out now on Domino Records. While you�re at it, pick up a copy of Ugly Betty: The Complete Second Season, out today on DVD.
