Everything's Coming Up Mormons in Pride Films and Plays' The Book of Merman



The Book of Merman - the new musical comedy by playwright Leo Schwartz - couldn't have a more perfect and inviting title. And I would think by now that almost everyone is familiar with the Tony Award-winning musical, The Book of Mormon, which is about two young Mormon missionaries who are sent to a remote village to share their sacred text. Mr. Schwartz has borrowed this simple premise, but instead of Uganda, his characters - Aaron and Jacob - are ringing the doorbells of small town America. And one day Ethel Merman opens the door. Yes, folks, that belting star of Broadway (Gypsy, Annie Get Your Gun) - who died in 1984 at age 76 - has come back to life. Hence, the amusing title, which certainly piqued my interest to attend Pride Films and Plays' world premiere production. And although the show wasn't exactly what I expected, I still enjoyed myself.

Dish of the Day #1569: Baby, You Can Drive My Car

Groovy Giveaway: Best Gay Erotica 2015



Courtesy of Cleis Press, this week's Groovy Giveaway is three copies of Best Gay Erotica 2015.

Best Gay Erotica 2015 is filled to the page-turning brim with fantastic tales of fire dancers and TV repairmen, of hunky painters and electricians and magicians, solo sex, duo sex, and sweat-soaked triple onslaughts. Heck, throw in an alien and a priest, and you’ll soon see why this anthology is head and shoulders — not to mention certain other body parts — above the rest, and always with the highest literary quality that readers have come to expect from this esteemed and steamy collection.

"What the stories all have in common is the ability to add excitement, anticipation and suspense in all the best ways." - 3 Chicks After Dark

"All of the stories are memorable in their way, each one worthy of being someone’s favorite...I can wholeheartedly recommend the book as a whole." - Erotica Revealed

"The Best Gay Erotica series sets and raises the bar…the hottest, freshest, and most literary fiction for the year." - Night Owl Reviews

And from author Rob Rosen, who edited this volume:

"I have been writing gay erotica for well over a decade. I've had more than 300 short stories published, most of them erotica, in more than 200 anthologies and in more than 40 combined issues of MEN, Freshmen and [2] magazines. So when Cleis Press approached me to be the editor of Best Gay Erotica 2015, the 20th edition of the grandaddy of all erotica collections, I naturally jumped at the chance. Honestly, there is no greater honor for a gay erotica writer/editor than this, and so I wanted to make sure that this one was the best yet. In other words, Best Gay Erotica 2015 rocks! There's far more humor, more dark fiction, more fantasy than in years past, and so this collection truly stands out. I hope the readers enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together."

31 Cold Days of Hot Guys #18: Remembering Greg Plitt



Fitness expert and reality TV star Greg Plitt tragically died Saturday at age 37 when he was hit by a train, and to celebrate his life, I think he would have enjoyed being featured as today's Hot Guy.

In addition to appearing on the covers of more than 250 fitness magazines, Plitt starred in two Bravo reality series - Work Out (2008) as a personal trainer and the new Friends to Lovers, which premiered on January 12. Other credits include Days of our Lives (2007-08), HGTV's Designed to Sell (2008) as a carpenter, and the 2009 film, Watchmen, in which images of his body were used to create Dr. Manhattan's muscular physique.

Below you can watch Mr. Plitt in a 2005 interview on The Gregory Mantell Show, on Work Out in 2008, and as the cover model and photographer for Natural Muscle Magazine in January 2011.
