"It’s no longer good enough for us to tell kids who are different that it's going to get better. We have to make it better now. So If you're gay and you're in public life, I’m sorry, you don't have to run around with a Pride flag and bore the hell out of everyone, but you can't be invisible. Not anymore."

For the past half week or so I've been crashing with a good friend in London, and among his housemates are a couple members of the band Clean Bandit, which I believe I've posted about sometime in the past (its been my go-to place to stay in London for a few years now). They have a newish video for their track "Telephone Banking," and I'm genuinely not posting it as a favour... It's a innovative video for an innovative song, and if you're in the UK and happen to get a chance to see them live (I did a summer ago and was not alone in my enthusiasm), please do so. Their website is here. Their video - which was impressively made by the band itself for next to nothing - is below:

I was obsessed with Lana Del Rey's "Video Games" all summer, but now there's 3 new reasons to put it in heavy iPod rotation all over again:

14 Minutes and 50 Seconds With Michael Fassbender

A few days back I had the ridiculous pleasure of interviewing Mr. Michael Fassbender when he was in New York promoting both "Shame" and "A Dangerous Method" at the New York Film Festival. Clever, insightful and seemingly quite humble, I'm happy to report that Fassbender the person seems as perfect as Fassbender the actor. The full interview is up over at indieWIRE, but I've posted the audio below. It was actually more like 18 minutes but my recorder tragically died before the last two questions (and before all the lovemaking, of course):

On December 2, 2011...

The two greatest performances of the year (of course only as far as I'm concerned) will be released in theaters. Fox Searchlight has announced that Steve McQueen's "Shame" will begin its limited release on December 2, 2011, the same day that Oscilloscope gives Lynne Ramsay's "We Need To Talk About Kevin" its Oscar qualifying run. These two films - both of which I saw at TIFF a few weeks ago - totally blew me away in large part due to their epic lead performances in Michael Fassbender and Tilda Swinton. Both are clearly being situated for Oscar nominations, but that's truly besides the point. Whether the Academy rewards them or not, these are inarguably two of the greatest actors working and they are both at the top of their game here. They share this incredible knack for choosing role after role that continues to show seemingly endless versatility. And there's also considerable parallels between the films themselves. Both take on serious, often overlooked topics in contemporary U.S. culture: teen violence and the idea that a bond between mother and child are not always inherent in "Kevin," and sex addiction and the hypersexuality of the internet era in "Shame." Oddly enough, these fine cinematic examinations of America today are almost entirely thanks to a bunch of folks from the U.K. Both films are U.K. productions, and Ramsay, McQueen, Fassbender and Swinton - two Scots, a Brit and an Irishman - make up their directors and stars. Hopefully December 2nd leaves enough room for both to find audiences, but either way the audiences that do find them are in for a treat...

This Weekend, Go See "Weekend"

Tender, talky and intensely sexy, Andrew Haigh’s "Weekend" could reductively be described as a sort of gay Before Sunrise. Over the course of its titular timeframe, the film follows Russell (Tom Cullen) and Glen (Chris New), two men who extend their blurry and drunken one night stand into 48 hours to remember. Russell is a pragmatic and semi-closeted lifeguard; Glen is a stubborn intellectual who “doesn’t do boyfriends.” Their star-crossed romance is quite perfectly executed by director Haigh, who lets the film quietly creep up on the viewer as a powerful new entry into the queer cinema lexicon.

Merci beaucoup, unnamed 36 year old man, for giving me a much needed laugh amidst the intense pre-TIFF planning nightmare. The Canadian Press is reporting that said man allegedly broke into Celine Dion's home near Montreal, raided the fridge and even took the time to pour himself a bath. Enjoy:

Last "W.E." related post until I finally see the thing this week, but this is just too good to ignore. At the start of the Venice Film Festival press conference for the film last week, watch as Madonna gets handed a hydrangea by a fan. Unfortunately for the fan, Madge loathes hydrangeas:
