Marvel Comics Will Feature Its First Same-Sex Marriage

Earlier this week we learned that DC Comics is planning to reintroduce an established comic book character as gay. Today we learn that Marvel Comics is planning a same-sex wedding for one of its already well-established gay characters. Northstar, a member of the X-Men, came out as gay back in 1992. Next month, he will marry his longtime boyfriend Kyle Jinadu in Astonishing X-Men #51. Marvel Comics has enjoyed a long tradition of superhero weddings over the years, so this wedding for Northstar and Kyle comes as no big surprise … er, that is, except for the fact that it will be Marvel‘s first same-sex marriage ever :) More »

Floating In Space

Last night I met up with my homies Ollie and Caleb in Koreatown so that we could grab a drink before we made our way to The Wiltern to see Spiritualized in concert. The last time I saw the band in concert was WAAAAY back when I still lived in Detroit … way back in the 90s. I honestly never thought I’d get the chance to see Spiritualized live again since I missed them almost 2 years ago when they performed a special one-off performance of the entire Ladies and Gentlemen, We’re Floating in Space album. So, yeah, I was really excited to see them in concert last night. More »

Last week Prince Charles was the weather man and now he is a budding deejay. Yes, Prince Charles, Prince of Wales surfaced yesterday in Toronto, Canada, on day two of an official Diamond Jubilee tour of Canada and showed his mixing skills behind the decks at a youth center music studio. The photo (and video!!) is hilarious. The image of Prince Charles with headphones on, scratching and fading a turntable is just too much. You have to see this and laugh yourself silly. More »
