G.B.F.

Doesn't he look like he could be Jonathan Silverman's son?


Oh..there aren't many movies like this one. Especially, with such a wonderful message. I loved the cast. I loved the writing. And it was great to see Michael J. Willett and Paul Paul Iacona in a movie ..together. Both actors are quite the chameleon. Saying that, they know how to define their characters and it was these two who made the movie.

Of course, they had some fantastic support from folks like Sasha Pieterse, Andrea Bowen and Xosha Roquemore as the Queen Bees at school.

Taylor Frey as Topher was so funny and great in this movie!

Director: Darren Stein
Starring: Michael J. Willett, Sasha Pieterse, Andrea Bowen, Xosha Roquemore
PlotWhat happens after Tanner is outed by his classmates and becomes the title “gay best friend” for three high school queen bees?
Ugh everyone go watch GBF it is amazing, like a gay version of Easy A and Mean Girls. Seriously so good and funny.
And fuck ratings. It’s rated R for “sexual content” or whatever but it’s no worse than either movie I mentioned above, both of which were PG-13. It’s disgusting that there is a clear bias against it for gayness because it is perfect for boys (sorry, but it is gay male-centric, not much for non-straight girls here) going through being gay/bi in high school, and girls who befriend them thinking that they are doing something good. The MPAA pisses me off so much with this.
But it’s easy to find online, so if you are having trouble with your sexuality PLEASE WATCH IT. I’m in college but it resonated so much, and I honestly think it could help other people.
So, yeah.-mac

Its now on Netflix. You just might have to watch it more than once.

Fiction Tuesday

Lucky Santangelo. A fifteen-year-old wild child ready to discover life, love and independence. Daughter of the notorious Gino, Lucky discovers her mother's murdered body floating in the family swimming pool at the tender age of four. Since then Gino has kept her protected from life closeted in their Bel Air mansion. But in Jackie Collins' Confessions of a Wild Child, Lucky finally breaks free, and running away from boarding school the adventures begin. Boys, sex, drugs and rock n' roll - Lucky explores it all in preparation for the strong, kick-ass woman she eventually becomes. Delve into the world that Lucky rules!


Jackie Collins takes you back, way back to where it started. Before Lucky was Lucky Santangelo, she was a wild child who faced tragedy as a five year old when she discovered her mother’s body in the pool and then been kept as a “prisoner” in her own home. But she was a Santangelo, the son Gino always wanted and he couldn’t accept that his daughter was a strong independent woman who was in charge of her own life.

Be strong. Kick ass when necessary. Never give in.
— Lucky Santangelo - Drop Dead Beautiful

Confessions of a Wild Child is in first person and in present tense which may to some readers be a distraction but this proves to be an advantage for this novel as it reads like one long neverending sentence that allows you to devour every confession that Lucky makes. It also gives you insight into the makings of this great character so young adults or established fans can read it. You will not want to put it down. Celi staff didn’t.-S Cuppari
It is summer. Bring on those guilty pleasures. Jackie Collins is probably someone your mother or your grandmother read..and they might not even admit it. But Collins has a way of putting all the glam and Hollywood in perspective. Even the rich and famous have problems too. This is book nine in the Lucky Santangelo series.
