If you still have an affinity for books, there can be few more choice summer reads than Edmund White's 2005 autobiography, My Lives. Divided into nonlinear sections devoted to his relationships with his parents, his hustlers, and his female entanglements, there's also a chapter entitled "My Europe." Herein White notes how while in the Paris of the 1980s, he became aware that petite green beans are tastier than their larger cousins. He also recounts how the social theorist Michel Foucault, a pal of his, noted that while "'gay philosophy' and 'gay paintings' were meaningless notions...writing gay fiction was legitimate since it enabled us to imagine how gay men should live together."
Foucault apparently "felt that relationships between gay men were tenuous, undefined, still to be invented, and that gay fiction was the place where a vision of association could be worked out in concrete detail."
The same could be said of Lgbt cinema, »

Happy Christmas, 2014
Directed by Joe Swanberg
After a break up, Jenny moves in with writer Kelly, her filmmaker husband, and their child. Despite a rocky start, Jenny’s influence helps Kelly realize that an evolution in her life, career and relationship is necessary for her happiness.
Joe Swanberg made quite the name for himself with last year’s Drinking Buddies. So much so that he was so busy touring the movie, he had to ditch his usual three-movies-a-year schedule to produce just one for 2014. What we get is indie comedy Happy Christmas starring Anna Kendrick – a movie that has such little point, you have to wonder why he bothered in the first place.
Taking place over the festive period, Happy Christmas sees Jenny (Kendrick) getting out of a relationship and moving into the basement of her brother »

If you were worried that Andy Samberg is on his way to being the next Adam Sandler, have no fear! He’s also taking a shot at being the next Will Ferrell. At least, that’s what it sounds like he’s going for in HBO’s 7 Days In Hell, which will feature Samberg as a “bad boy” tennis player embroiled in a seven-day long tennis match at Wimbledon.
Samberg is both starring in and had a hand in creating the “professional tennis mockumentary” alongside Girls co-writer/producer Murray Miller. The one-off HBO “event” will also feature Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington as a tennis prodigy who faces off against Samberg’s bad boy player at Wimbledon. The story, while extreme, is based in reality: a real-life tennis match between John Isner and Nicholas Mahut went on for three days at Wimbledon, back in 2010. Not content with reality, Samberg and »

The movie actually isn't too far fetched. To date, the longest tennis match record, held on Court 18 at Wimbledon, went for 11 hours over the course of three days as John Isner and Nicolas Mahut battled it out during the 2010 Championships.
HBO is putting together a sports mockumentary project, and the network has pulled together a rather promising comedic ensemble. Girls writer/co-executive producer Murray Miller is teaming up with Andy Samberg to create 7 Days in Hell, which is described as a mockumentary send-up of professional tennis. Per THR, the one-off HBO Comedy Event will star Samberg as a superstar tennis “bad boy” who becomes embroiled in a seven-day tennis match at Wimbeldon with an Andy Murray-type prodigy and certified truck driver, played by Game of Thrones star Kit Harington. The current roster also includes Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, Will Forte, Karen Gillan, Howie Mandel, Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen, June Squibb, and Soledad O’Brien, who will play herself. This sounds like the kind of delightfully goofy project that’s perfect for Samberg, and I’m very curious to see how Harington’s comedic skills stack up. No word on when the project may air, »

J.J. Abrams is currently filming Star Wars: Episode VII in Abu Dhabi, but will soon be packing up his new X-Wing and taking the film to Ireland. According to the Office of Public Works, filming will commence off the coast of County Kerry. They’ll be filming around Skellig Michael, an island in the Atlantic Ocean 11.6 km west of County Kerry’s Iveragh Peninsula.
Apart from the typical beautiful scenery Ireland has to offer, Skellig Michael is unique because it’s home to some ancient Christian Monastic ruins, which could fit in well as some dwellings on some alien world in the film. This also marks another great example of how Abrams is going back to Star Wars‘ roots and shooting on location instead of in front of a green screen. We may not know anything about the film’s plot yet, but we do know that the backgrounds and »
