I just saw Le Proces de Jeanne d'Arc (1962) (in French with English subtitles that are more or less adequate, as these things go) and was struck that the huge problem for the Holy Ch

And no, I wasn't alive back then. My grandfather was, though. He made his living as a butcher back in the thirties, moving between Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Missouri as the work was available.
This is the one starring Ethan Hawke, Kyle MacLachlan, Sam Shepard, and the ever-cute Julia Stiles.
Modern day setting, original dialogue.
I went to see Philomena, starring Judy Dench and Steve Coogan, based upon the book written by Martin Sixsmith about an Irishwoman's search for her son who was taken from her when he was a toddler and
Every time I try to write about tg stuff it goes wrong. One day I'll get it right, but in the meantime here's Megan Ward.
Someone recently asked 'What Makes You Cry?'
We often see comment here about some of the more repellent representations of the Transgender community on TV. However...
For all Dr Who fans out there.
Yesterday I got interviewed on Transition TV on the NotStr8 television station (now available on Roku). I will post the link as soon as I get it.
I'll be live on transition TV tonight at 9pm tonight. Come watch, tell me what you think.
In my humble opinion, a very well handled and TRUE depiction of how Transsexuals are treated by others AND by the law itself. Frightening, frustrating, and maddening... but true.
Domonique Newburn, one of the stars of "Hollywood Houseboys," was found dead Tuesday after suffering "blunt trauma," the San Bernardino County Coroner's Office said The transgender star of an online r
As we probably all know, Google regularly likes to pay homage to pop culture. They've had a bit of Whoniverse fun recently with StreetView.
Labyrinth had its moments, but for me nothing can beat the 'waltzing dress' scene from Ridley Scott's Legend.
It is sheer cinematic perfection.
From BBC I-player. A look at women in the UK in the 1960s. I'm not sure if this link will last very long (if it works at all).
A BBC4 film about the thespian couple who loved each other but couldn't live together. It was very well performed by Dominic West as Richard Burton and Helena Bonham-Carter as Liz Taylor.
Superman. Not a story but a franchise. As predictable as a McDonalds and just as hard to swallow.
I came back from the cinema last night feeling like an utter child after seeing Man Of Steel.
My Favorite Movies, which have often been a type of cinematic therapy.

If you are an Arizona resident:
The Katie Couric show today was about transgender children. It was VERY good. One girl who is now 19 showed what blockers and hormones can do. She is a really pretty young lady.
Need to get my hands on the Griffin artifact. Watching warehouse 13 and pete and mika switched bodies. That would be so cool to have.
Well this is interesting. As you can tell I am very excited for a new Superman Movie this summer.
I watch 20/20 about Jazz ,what a brave and very beautiful young lady.
ok...20/20's story on Jazz, the 11 year old transgirl was well done and refreshingly openminded.
I just saw a commercial for tomorrow night's (Saturday's) episode of 20/20.
Spotted courtesy of the "Geeks are Sexy" blog, a set of rather impressive photo manipulations to illustrate what (live action) female versions of a trio of Avengers characters and a trio of Dark Knigh
Her Captain Kirk is so Shatner-esque, with Andrea Martin as Spock. And the woman who does McCoy is laugh out loud spot-on!
I'm watching "A Muppet Christmas Carol", and its as good now as it ever was.
i was checking out aol when clip about man who became his wifes wife. jeff probst was interviewing them. interesting stuff, none of that jerry springer yelling and such.
The Science channel is, right now, running a Firefly marathon, followed by the final two episodes and then a reunion of the entire cast.

The new tv series Arrow is a take on Green Arrow. I've just finished the pilot episode- this series looks promising- I'm waiting for the next one with anticipation.
The Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski yes please. Maybe something to keep an eye out for. More details in this story from Variety.
Well, at long last, the movie I have been waiting for since I heard it was going to BE a movie, came out for rental today. The Avengers!
I just saw a commercial for the show 2 Broke Girls (I never heard of the show). The commercial caught my attention with the phrase "lesbian Justin Beiber." It went on with a character saying "I have a secret." The responses are "You are a woman trapped in a man's body" and "You are a little boy trapped in a little girl's body."
Here is the IMDb page of the actor with a secret. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3211555/
Just finished the season finale. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but would love to dish about the finale and what it portends for next season. Are there any other fans? I figure a day or two before it would be okay to post what happened, and give fans a chance to watch it. :)
If only! What a start if he/she wanted to go all the way.
