That's So Gay! - Books And Better Off Ted

Dan Savage's The Kid The Musical? Seriously? Considering it's one of my favorite books, one that I recommend to ANYONE having a baby, whether you're gay or straight, and a book (full title: The Kid: (What Happened After My Boyfriend and I Decided to Go Get Pregnant) an Adoption Story) that could make me laugh and cry, all within a single paragraph, why not a musical? (Here's EW's review)

And for all those getting married, gay or straight, I highly recommend Dan Savage's other book The Commitment. It's a good book to read before you get married, whether you have doubts or not (and especially if you have doubts).

While I'm on gays I love, Better Off Ted's geeky labrat and out-in-real-life Jonathan Slavin speaks out about actors playing gay with his views here and here.

And how awesome was this week's Better Off Ted?

Better Off Ted - Through Rose Colored HAZMAT Suits, Racial Sensitivity, Win Some, Dose Some, Goodbye, Mr. Chips - Eps. 103-106

Actually, with the exception of the 3rd episode, which kind of fell flat, the whole series has been hysterical.

The racially sensitive motion sensor? The white guys hired to shadow the black employees? The accidental drugging of Linda? Anything Portia de Rossi as Veronica? Kristoffer Polaha!?! (above with Jay Harrington, who has finally found a great show to exude his charms and likability).

And Veronica stealing all the ID cards to secretly help out Ted? Awesome!!!

WHY IS NO ONE WATCHING THIS SHOW? Oh sure, you're all gonna discover it on DVD years from now, just like you did for Arrested Development, and then wonder why they didn't make more seasons. I hate you all.
