Top 10 guy-on-guy onscreen kisses
I'm just posting this link so I can have a subject line that totally grabs your attention. I've seen about half the films on that list and they are pretty hot. I think I need to get Wilde
on dvd; I've never been able to see Jude Law as anyone besides a really bratty gay boyfriend, nanny or not.
Anyway, this link reminds me of a story that Sarah's mom Jeanne told me once. A few years back, Jeanne was in town and I went over to say hi. After chatting for awhile, Jeanne said, "You know, a few weeks ago, I went to the video store and asked if they could recommend any Ewan McGregor movies." Jeanne was getting the movie for her other daughter Charlotte, who was 13 at the time and had liked Ewan McGregor ever since seeing Moulin Rouge
. The clerk recommended Velvet Goldmine
and for some reason or another, Jeanne decided to preview the movie before giving it to Charlotte. Needless to say, Jeanne decided that Charlotte was too young for a movie about glam rock and gay sex.
At this point, I have kind of a bad feeling about where this is going and Sarah and I exchange a look.
The next day, both Jeanne and Charlotte go back to the video store and while Charlotte's checking out the other movies, the clerk asks Jeanne how she liked the movie.
"I really didn't think that's an appropriate movie for a 13 year old," Jeanne told her.
"Oh no!" the clerk said. "I thought it was for you! I would never have recommended it for Charlotte. Of course, she's too young for a movie like that."
At this point, Charlotte walked up and asked, "What's wrong with it? It can't be as bad as Velvet Goldmine
Both Jeanne and the clerk were shocked. "You've seen this?" Jeanne asked.
"Oh yeah," Charlotte said. "Sarah and Jennifer let me watch it. We didn't watch all of it. Just the parts where Ewan was naked and we fast forwarded through the rest."
I really wanted to hide under my chair at that point. Sarah and I both had that "we so fucked this up" look on our faces. It had never occured to either of us to tell Charlotte not to tell her mom about it in much the same way it hadn't occured to us that you can be a fan of Ewan McGregor and not, at some point, see his dick in a movie. That's quite a few movies you'd be missing out on.
Luckily, Jeanne didn't seem as upset as much as she just really wanted to see us squirm. And we didn't let her down on that, I think. Since then, I've heard that Charlotte has gotten to see Velvet Goldmine
in its entirety and now has her own copy. See, corrupting innocent teens all works out in the end.
