  • Entertainment Goin' Deep

    The title of homo-hop act Deep Dickollective's fourth release, On Some Other, has manifold meanings. ' 'On some other' is an African-American colloquial for 'odd,' 'next-wave,' or 'unsure,'' says member Juba Kalamka (a.k.a. Pointfivefag), who produced most of the album's highbrow tracks. 'It was also a tongue-in-cheek reference to the idea that queer hip-hop artists were reinventing the wheel by telling their stories.'

  • Entertainment The Gay Agenda

    FLICK: Check out the big-screen adaptation of Star Trek scribe David Gerrold's autobiographical novel Martian Child. The film tells the story of David (John Cusack), a writer who seeks solace from a bad breakup by adopting a young boy who believes he's an alien from Mars. The main character, who was queer in the book, is now straight, but the movie still tackles themes resonant to the gays -- like the families we create for ourselves. Bonus: Gay icon Joan Cusack cameos.

    Before big pharma's marketing of multidrug cocktails plastered cheerful HIV-positive models on billboards and at bus stops, there was David Wojnarowicz, a raw and wrenching voice from the burning belly of the AIDS beast. His essays, eight of which are collected here, testify to the rage of dying in a culture that refused to recognize, much less save, the lives of gay men. 'I needed to be shook,' he wrote of hustling in Times Square at 15, and his Beat-inflected prose still does the same to us.

    The ice-cream truck on Avenue C is playing 'It's a Small World.' Inside sits a local Latino. His old-school truck is plastered over with rainbow rocket pops and graffiti. It's definitely been around since before Alphabet City became trendy. Back before gentrification, when it was Avenue C for Crime. The ice-cream man will soon be priced out too, and I find that sad because he is local flavor. He puts smiles on faces -- a Puerto Rican purveyor of high-calorie happiness. He looks up briefly as I walk by with my boyfriend. 'Faggots!' he calls out, and returns to eating a chimichanga.
