Whee Movies!  
I got David Searching and Open House. Mmmm Anthony-filled weekend. ^_^

Convo between me and Ana on the phone about David Searching:

Me: He actually plays a gay guy!
Ana: Oh my God!
Me: I know! Anthony being gay! Can you imagine it?!
Ana: Of course not!
Me: It's unbelievable!
Ana: There are riots in the streets when Anthony acts gay!
Me: *Pause* You know, if that were true, Anthony is to blame for the whole Middle East fiasco.

(To those who don't know anything about Anthony Rapp, 1.) you haven't been reading my LJ and 2.) he is gay. Okay, so he's queer, which means he doesn't exclude the possibility of being with women, but he's been mostly with men for years, and has said that he can only really form emotional attachments to men. But even when he plays straight characters, he acts pretty damn gay. Like the gaydar goes off the charts.)

And a note to Victoria: for shits and giggles, I looked for Adam's books while I was in Borders. They actually had one of his out of print books there. When I have money again, I plan to pick it up (along with 33 Snowfish). I doubt they're going anywhere, since this is East Bumfuck, Maine we're talking about.

Sounds like your weekend is going to be a fun one ^_^

And you know most of those riots are made up of women right? They get all upset about finding out Anthony is gay because they love him so much...and then they discover the joys of Mark/Roger.

And everyone lives happily ever after.

*giggles* I like the way you think. And I LOVE the icon. ^_^

I wonder if I could manufacture a "correlation" between Anthony acting gay and actual riots around the world. It would be far too amusing.

Why thank you, on both accounts ^_^

I bet you could. And then you should find out how many have turned out like Goo's icon says *snickers* Now if ever there was a good way for the government to waste taxpayers money, that would be it *nods*

Out-of-print! Which one? I'm now working through the ones I haven't finished at a rapid pace. I'm in the middle of COPPER ELEPHANT at the moment. They're all just . . . really wonderful novels. They're the sort of young adult novels that would make members of the PTA cry themselves to sleep at night.

ZOMG! Anthony's GAY? . . . Yeah, he can't play straight characters at all. Like when my mother's girlfriend started watching RENT, she was like: "So he (points to Mark) is going out with him (points to Roger), right?" I'm like: " . . . not unless you're reading fanfiction." I totally want to see DAVID SEARCHING. How is it?

I thought it was one of the out of print books, but it turns out the Borders computer was messed up (they've been having problems all week. Made ordering the movies a bitch). They had a paperback copy of 33 Snowfish and a hardcover copy of Under the Wolf, Under the Dog.

As for David Searching, I didn't watch it yet. I just watched Open House, where Anthony plays the cutest little psycho swishy guy in the world. I am actually about to watch David Searching right now, if you want me to let you know how it is.

That book's still like impossible to get. (Then again, ANY Adam Rapp novel except 33 SNOWFISH is almost impossible to get.) I had to go to like all of the Strands to get 80% of his novels. I haven't read UWUD yet but I've heard that it's like the next CATCHER IN THE RYE or something. Because of the whole part where Adam's the next great American author . . . and I told him that too. He was all like: " . . . (shuffle shoes and smile broadly.)"

Let me know how the movie goes. OPEN HOUSE = LOVE.

So I just watched David Searching. It's very cute and funny and amusing and two words: Anthony masturbating.

O Much icon love, and where did you get the pic for your banner its like the best thing I have seen all weekend!!! I love it. Oh and I love the quote.
A Guy Named Gooaguynamedgoo on May 13th, 2006 11:19 am (UTC)
The icon was made for me by pyralisha (one of my favorite people in the world), the banner on my LJ is the current pic Anthony has on his MySpace, and the quote obviously comes from his book (it's my favorite part of his book and my favorite quote. The one that made me shake because of how much I identify with it).
*Hannah Bear* Theatre Pimp!angel_1stdegree on May 13th, 2006 11:22 am (UTC)
Ok thanks, Yeah i identify with it too. I like cried thought out his entire book you know he might/in the process of writing a fictional book to? Thanks for telling me I emailed you throught my St.Joanne account if you get it than the email works.

And I responded to your e-mail. ^_^ And yeah, I heard about the fictional book. He said it is going to be a story about fame, only set in something like a futuristic or sci-fi setting. As for Adam's books, he writes...I don't know how to describe this. He writes plays, obviously, and mostly young adult novels. The thing is these novels are rather strange and great, but they deal with things like sexual abuse and STDs and incest and all sorts of fun stuff.
*Hannah Bear* Theatre Pimp!angel_1stdegree on May 13th, 2006 11:33 am (UTC)
Replyed, and yeah I hope he writes the book. I nkow he writes plays I wanted to go see the one that is currently playing ( forgot the name) but my dad was like no we already saw 4 on broadway. :( But Yeah I knew he wrote palys. Well the last book I read and fell in love with was " I am not myslef these days" which is about a drag queen and his male escort crack smoking bf so yeah I like to read books like that!!

What kind of books does Adam write?? And what are the titles?
