The Gay Agenda


By Joseph Hassan

Thursday, November 13: Have you ever woken up wondering, What the hell am I doing? or Who's that guy? If so, you may have 'rapid eye movement disorder' (and probably a wicked hangover, we imagine). Either way, you'll relate to comedian Mike Birbiglia's theatrical debut, Sleepwalk with Me, co-produced by Nathan Lane.The Comedy Central vet's show takes a look at alarming yet hilarious situations caused by the comic's chronic sleep condition. Mike's outlandish prescription for the problem: a toe-to-chest'zipped sleeping bag and special mittens to prevent crazy antics. The show begins at 8:00 PM EST at New York City's Bleecker Street Theater.

Friday, November 14: Ian Fleming's notoriously dashing secret agent takes center stage in Quantum of Solace (above), the 22nd installment of the James Bond franchise, which hits U.S. theaters tonight. It is heartthrob Daniel Craig's second time in the leading role, though this flick finds our protagonist in a much more cantankerous state than years past. Quantum may offer less bedroom action than its predecessors, but the newest Bond babe Olga Kurylenko and Dame Judi Dench make up for what's missing in the boudoir. Following the footsteps of Shirley Bassey, Carly Simon, and Shirley Manson, Alicia Keys and Jack White (of the White Stripes) lay 'Another Way to Die,' the film's catchy theme song. Another far more important must-see event tonight is the annual Out 100 Party, Out's celebration of the 100 queer movers and shakers who made 2008 an unforgettable year. Keep one finger on the Out 100 blog starting at 8 PM EST to catch live, behind-the-scenes updates from the star-studded event, hosted by Chelsea Handler.
