Sorry about the jerky camera-work! It’s hard to film yourself in a parade.
So I thought I had found out something titillating when I recognized my home-away-from-home was the set of “America’s Prom Queen“:
Yes, that p R O m queen, not p O R n queen.
But the cake has been taken by Andrea’s blog revelation that our little mansion was used in the must-see gem “Cougar Club“, starring Faye Dunaway and Joanie Laurer! As both a “cougar” and a Faye Dunaway fan, I didn’t know what to be more excited about! I will be posting a writeup of “Cougar Club” as soon as I’ve watched it.

I have to think that at this point, Faye Dunaway is just having fun with life.
Probably the best I’ve ever looked in my life. Thank you, television!
Well well… like a kid with a book report due, I’ve put off writing this episode recap for quite some time now. I blame most of it on the fact that I exhaust easily, so I’ve needed a lot of time to recover from the back-to-back Ohio, London and New Orleans trips.
From a phone call received while walking in the bright Summer sun of 2007 to the emotional roller coaster of shooting in that Fall, to the fun of airing it on Logo in early 2008, here we are, the season finale of Transamerican Love Story!

So, after a week of trying to get this video to upload to YouTube (it kept timing out), it has finally made it up! This is some footage of Leslie and me settling into our hotel room, running around town and rehearsing for our monologue. Then I added in some clips from a few other YouTube people who had uploaded video from that night, and some photos.
To my great and lasting heartbreak, I somehow lost my digital camera as I was returning to Los Angeles from New Orleans. On it were many photos of me with the various women in the play, including Jane Fonda, Rosario Dawson, Doris Roberts, Didi Conn, Kristina Krepela, Amber Tamblyn, Ali Larter and of course Eve Ensler. All of the photos are irreplaceable, so this loss will haunt me for some time to come. But thankfully, the most important part was that I got to experience the event, and I will never lose the memories.
Wow, the “Bad Questions to Ask a Transsexual” video continues to be popular (over 112,683 views and counting!), leading me to do a re-edit I’m calling “Bad Questions to Ask a Transsexual: The Director’s Cut“. It was doing surprisingly well on YouTube when it first debuted, spreading to blogs and email lists around the net, and then bigger blogs such as BoingBoing picked it up, skyrocketing its views up for a few days. Next, Logo picked it up and featured it on LogoOnline.com, and now I got even bigger news today!
According to a personal email from YouTube, it’s in the works to be featured on YouTube’s front page! WOW, that will expose it to potentially MILLIONS of viewers! When it goes up, I’ll let y’all know!
