I was looking for a watch-free-online version of The Celluloid Closet, which is a fantastic documentary about the history of gay cinema, but instead I stumbled across a metafilter post with links to a whole crapton of gay documentaries that I will be watching when I get home.

Go learn something

A belt with some character, from lesbian favorites Lucky Dog Leather. It’s got studs without looking stupid, but it also has a removable buckle so you can add your own rodeo clown buckle.

Friday Book: Bittersweet

I haven’t had time to track down another good (or mediocre) movie this week, so instead let me introduce you to one of my favorite works of lesbian fiction ever. I first started reading Nevada Barr because of her Park Service mystery novels (which are great), but I picked up a copy of her first novel, Bittersweet. I had never really liked historical fiction or the western genre until I read this, and then I realized that I just hadn’t related to any of the other historical fiction I had read. This is a sweet, if sometimes heartbreaking, novel about the love of two women and the measures they have to go through to hide it. It’s also a lot better written than my summary.

$10.07 from Amazon

Nylon Canvas Computer Field Bag

Maybe some day I will have a grown-up job where I will have to look nice and I won’t be able to carry my computer around in a dirt-encrusted backpack. When that day comes, I will strongly consider buying this bag or one very similar. It is simple and water resistant, but at the same time it doesn’t look like that one same black computer bag that every business person ever seems to have.

I haven’t had this beer, but I do love beer. And I love shirts. And one of my goals in life is to visit Hawaii, so all in all this is a pretty great shirt.

Friday Movie: Dress to Kill

If you’ve never seen Eddie Izzard’s Dress to kill, it’s fucking fabulous. I’ve probably listened to it or watched it 50 times and it’s still funny. Izzard is a smart British transvestite who enjoys cursing and poking badgers with spoons. What else can you say?
