My Generation premieres this Thursday @8/7c on ABC.
Back in May when the promo for ABC’s My Generation was released to the press, I felt a wave of nostalgia wash over me in an instant, as if the show was speaking to me personally about my life post high school graduation. In short, I was already won over. With my first high school class reunion coming up next year, I felt that My Generation was a perfect mirror for me to reflect on the ten years that had passed by revisiting the times through the eyes of these nine characters. Well, I was wrong (but not in a bad way), because My Generation follows the Class of 2000, I graduated in 2001. Oops.
That date mixup didn’t deter my enjoyment, however, of the pilot for the ABC dramedy/mockumentary, which centers around nine high school archetypes (the jock, the beauty queen, »

Lesbians were essentially shut out of ABC’s day at the Television Critics’ Association’s summer press tour Sunday. While ABC’s fall programming schedule is packed with new series that feature strong women front and center, the lesbian content doesn’t seem promising judging from their presentation to critics Sunday in Beverly Hills.
Here’s a rundown of the scripted series ABC will be kicking off come September and beyond.
9:45 ABC Executive session
Incoming ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee, noting that he’s only been on the job for 36 hours (having just been promoted after the departure of Steve McPherson), didn’t say much about specific plans for the network’s fall primetime schedule, other than that he isn’t planning to shuffle premiere dates and time slots. Lee, who earned the bump after developing such ABC Family hits as Kyle Xy, The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Pretty Little Liars, »

This is the trailer for Please Give (directed by Nicole Holofcener and starring Rebecca Hall, Elizabeth Keener, Elise Ivy, Catherine Keener, Josh Pais, Sarah Steele, Ann Morgan Guilbert, Amanda Peet and Oliver Platt. Kate (Catherine Keener) has a lot on her mind. There’s the ethics problem of buying furniture on the cheap at estate sales and marking it up at her trendy Manhattan store (and how much markup can she get away with?). There’s the materialism problem of not wanting her teenage daughter (Sarah Steele) to want the expensive things that Kate wants. »

Riddle me this. What do you get when you combine over 10,000 happy lesbians, daily pool parties, nightly dance parties, and enough alcohol to keep Amy Winehouse occupied for five days? If you answered, "I don't know, but where do I sign up?" you wouldn't be the first. Actually, what you do get is the largest lesbian event in the world: The Dinah Shore Weekend in Palm Springs, California.
The desert extravaganza that's been described as "Lesbian Spring Break" is more than gay girls gone wild. I've been to three Dinah's and can tell you it's not for the weak, the straight, or the easily shocked. You haven't lived until you've seen topless girls hanging off a hotel balcony, swinging a blow up doll and waving to Leisha Hailey.
A new feature length documentary, Out in The Desert, promises an insider's look into, not only the dreamy dykes, debauchery and drama, »
“Here is a story you think you know, but do not.” So the tagline goes for the new short film Heartless: The Story of the Tinman by Whitestone Motion Pictures.
Heartless was written and directed by Brandon McCormick and co-written by Charlie Wetzel, both of Whitestone Motion Pictures. It’s based on the original classic story by L. Frank Baum (Wonderful Wizard of Oz) and tells the story of how the Tinman ended up the way he was when Dorothy found him in the woods. It stars Elizabeth Keener (The Golden Samovar) as the Maiden, Mark Ashworth (That’s Magic!) as the Tinner and Joshua Harrison (Gun Town) as the Woodsman/Tinman.
Mackenzie Reiland from Whitestone told me:
“The idea came from reading the source material in Wonderful Wizard of Oz and realizing how powerful and relevant the myth of the Tinman really is. The myth speaks to a modern »
