Lime Street Entertainment: Quirky, Sexy & Irresistibly Fun!

From: Favorite Hunks & Other Things
'My name is Steven and I'm a writer / director of Indie Features Films that range from ArTHouSe to Gay Comedy and Mind Bending Erotic Drama. '

Brandon Rife and Addison Graham in ErOddity(s)
 I think like many of you, I've had a complicated history with Gay Cinema. Throughout my teens, and even into my early twenties, it was all about the nudity. I can't tell you how many films I bought or rented to watch the a movies's one nude scene. I hate to think of how much money I spent at Blockbuster, re-renting Die Hard over and over.  Although I love Die Hard, I didn't rent it to watch, but to put on top of the gay themed movie or foreign film I was really wanting to see  With all this effort, and all that money, I usually had a film with no memorable story, and about 20 or so seconds of flesh.

 As I got older, my tastes certainly expanded, and I was certainly drawn to beautifully shot, character driven gay themed films. That did not mean however, that I still wasn't interested in a decent amount of skin, woven within the tragic and theatrical or course!. Some films and filmmakers managed to get the mix right, again usually foreign films such as two of my favorites, Grande École and Y Tu Mamá También.

Now I'm sure that many American directors could have done the same thing, and I'm guessing there plenty who wanted to. My guess is backers may not have seen much of an audience for a gay themed, character/story driven film, with a healthy and hearty dose of male nudity. Thankfully, writer, director, producer and editor Steven Vasquez, still found a way to get his films made.

 Two of Steven's films, ErOddity(s) and Counselor Week at Camp Liberty, I had seen before.. I was impressed with well how fully formed his characters were and how quickly I became invested in their pain, loves and especially their lusts. I was also impressed with how straight forward Steven was with nudity, especially male nudity. There is no switch and bate, or teasing of frontals which never actually happen. In Camp Liberty for example, all of the main male cast members take off their clothes. The nude scenes are not just 'blink of you'll miss it' either, nudity and erotica are important elements of the movies, not just something used in promotion to get gay men to fork out a few bucks.

It wasn't just Steven's movies however, that had me wanting to feature his work, it was also his work as a photographer. I always try to do a little research o the artists I profile. Last month, while profiling Ivan Bohman, I was going through the sexy sixty year old models credited photographers to pick out some favorite images. One of those hotographers listed was LIME STREET, which led me to Steven's ModelMayhem page. I quickly also learned Ivan has been in a couple of Steven's films including his 2014 erotic three part drama, Angels with Tethered Wings. And yes, Ivan has a brief nude scene in the film!

 I was instantly drawn to Steven's images. Most are shots of the actors in his films, with many behind the scene stills, outtakes and shots taken in between filming. Since Steven's films include nudity, it only made sense that so did some of his images. Many of the faces, and bodies in his films were familiar, some are models as well, with their own Model Mayhem pages.  Not that Steven's actors all have to have model good looks.  Some are goofy, and nerdy and fit the characters they're playing. They are all however, sexy in their own distinct and beautiful way.

... there were a few familiar models, a couple of whom I featured on FH. In addition to Ivan, I was also pleasantly surprised to see some hot shots of FH favorite Quinn Jaxon. Quinn was a part of Steven's 2013 Horror flick, Vampire Boys 2: The New Brood and has a lead role in the upcoming release, E Ticket Ride.

 Surf and sand, hot guys and gals, drama, fun, and sex - E Ticket Ride is quirky, sexy and irresistibly fun

 Given E Ticket Ride features Ivan and Quinn, and given Steven's MM page had plenty of behind the scene shots from the film, I thought it was a good idea to give it some extra attention. The film is getting close to having a release date, and when it does, I will let you all know how to watch or get your own copy.

E Ticket Ride is a heartwarming story about two best friends, Wesley and Garret. Stumbling through life's hurdles together, they must overcome the battle of love. Afraid of ruining their friendship, Wesley holds in his feelings about Garret, not knowing how it may affect their friendship. Garret also finds his personal battle of acceptance, and impressions, pushed to the limit. If they can let go of their fears, they both may realize what they've been looking for is right in front of them.

Mash It Up With The Rhodes Brothers For #NationalGuacamoleDay

From: Queerty
When they’re at their best, they’re soft to the touch. They can be sweet or savory depending on the environment. Oh, and two is always better than one.

We’re obviously referring to the ever-charming Rhodes brothers, who have teamed up with Los Angeles LGBT Center Coordinator Arlita Miller and Center board member and celebrity chef Susan Feniger to celebrate National Guacamole Day.

So cut, scoop, mash and season your way to glory this NGD — it’s what the founding fathers would have wanted.

Watch below:

And if you still have an appetite for some guac, revisit this classic:

Keith Olbermann Channels Edward R. Murrow in Blistering Takedown of Donald Trump

From: Towleroad

Keith Olbermann is back and taking aim at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Olbermann will be running a new web series for GQ called “The Closer.” In its first episode, Olbermann tallies the 176 most outrageous of Trump’s offenses in his “15-month assault on American democracy.”

Said Olbermann in a call to arms to defeat Trump,

“Every few generations, we Americans are called upon to defend our country. To defend it not so much from foreign dictators or war or terrorism, but from those here who have no commitment to progress or democracy or representative government—no commitment to anything except their own out-of-control minds and the bottomless pits of their egos.
Our society has thrown up these people before: Joseph McCarthy. George Wallace. Father Coughlin. Jefferson Davis. Aaron Burr. The Know-Nothings. The Blacklisters. The America-Firsters. And we have always thrown them out.
And now our generation has its own: the most dangerous individual ever nominated by a major party for the highest office in this country.”

Olbermann proceded to run through all the shocking things Donald Trump has done that we have become numb to because of the bombastic nature of his candidacy. In what is perhaps the most effective assault on Trump, Olbermann attacks the Republican nominee as an almost pathological liar:

The Republican Party has actually nominated for president a man who lied about opposing the war in Iraq, when there is a tape of him supporting it. A taperecorded on the first anniversary of 9/11…
Who lied about opposing the war in Iraq during a speech in which he insisted, “I will never lie to you.”
Who lied about six million dollars in charitable donations to veterans’ groups from his telethon; who lied about donating his profits from The Apprentice, about charitable donations from The Celebrity Apprentice, and from “Trump the Game” to St. Jude Cancer Center.
Who lied about a plan to debate Bernie Sanders for charity.
Who lied about why he wouldn’t release his taxes, because he was being audited and proved himself a liar by saying he would release his taxes if Hillary Clinton released her e-mails; who lied about how much money his father gave him or helped him get, coming out of college; who lied about sending his private jet to ferry stranded U.S. servicemen; who lied about talking to the Attorney General of Florida, who declined to investigate Trump University after she was given a campaign donation; who lied about his business in Russia; who lied about meeting Russian president Putin; who lied about offering child care to his employees, when it was child care for his hotel guests; who lied about “some people” wanting a moment of silence for the murderer of five Dallas policemen; who lied about seeing thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating 9/11; who lied about 9/11 hijackers sending their wives and girlfriends home to Saudi Arabia.
Who lied about thousands of Syrian refugee terrorists being secretly admitted to this country; who lied about the Chicago police urging him to cancel a rally; who lied about the Chicago police saying they could solve crime there with “tough police tactics“; who lied about how there was no drought in California, how he never said Japan should have nuclear weapons, how he opposed the ouster of Egyptian president Mubarak, how the unemployment rate is 42 percent.
Who lied about ISIS making millions a week selling Libyan oil; who lied about dozens of secret terrorist cases in this country; who lied that a protester who tried to rush onto his stage had “ties to ISIS”; who lied last May and again last week about refugees entering this country carrying cell phones with “ISIS flags on them” and phone plans pre-paid by ISIS!

Olbermann also made sure to highlight Trump’s heinous response to the Orlando massacre on June 12, saying,

The Republican Party has actually nominated for president a man who congratulated himself in twotweets and a press release for predicting terrorist attacks like Orlando, while bodies still lay in the Pulse nightclub…

Olbermann may as well conclude his segment with, “Good night, and good luck.” But instead he wraps it up with, “This is madness. Any questions?”

Ivanka Trump Walks Out Of Interview After Questions About Anti-Gay Policies

"I think that you have a lot of negativity in these questions."
From: NewNowNext
Ivanka Trump refused to acknowledge the anti-gay nature of her father’s newly proposed child care and maternity leave policies during an interview with Cosmopolitan this week.

Asked several times to clarify whether the new plan, which offers new mothers six weeks of paid maternity leave after giving birth, would also apply to same-sex couples where both parents were men, the 34-year-old businesswoman all but confirmed it would not.

Moments later, Trump walked out of the interview early, citing the interviewer’s “negative” tone during additional questions about Donald Trump’s previous disparaging comments about women.

Asked if she believed same-sex couples not being entitled to maternity or paternity leave could be seen as an equality issue, Trump repeatedly referred back to “the mother” of said child, refusing to state the obvious— that two men who have a child together simply wouldn’t be eligible to receive maternity or paternity leave under a Trump administration.

During the interview, Trump dodged the direct question a total of three more times:

Cosmopolitan: OK, so when it comes to same-sex—

Ivanka Trump: So it’s meant to benefit, whether it’s in same-sex marriages as well, to benefit the mother who has given birth to the child if they have legal married status under the tax code.

Well, what about gay couples, where both partners are men?

The policy is fleshed out online, so you can go see all the elements of it. But the original intention of the plan is to help mothers in recovery in the immediate aftermath of childbirth.

So I just want to be clear that, for same-sex adoption, where the two parents are both men, they would not be receiving special leave for that because they don’t need to recover or anything?

Well, those are your words, not mine. [Laughs.] Those are your words. The plan, right now, is focusing on mothers, whether they be in same-sex marriages or not.

Ivanka ultimately left the interview after a few more probing questions about her father’s past comments, telling the interviewer “I think that you have a lot of negativity in these questions.”

Emmy Voter Proud To Cast “Shocking” Ballot For “Transgender” RuPaul

From: Queerty
"You’re going to be shocked by this, but I voted for RuPaul. He so deserves it. It’s a really funny show — it would be a feather in the cap of the TV Academy to give a trophy to a transgender [note: RuPaul is a drag queen, not a transgender person], and I’d give anything to hear his acceptance speech."
Anonymous Emmy voter, spilling the tea on their 2016 ballot and being corrected by the good editors at The Hollywood Reporter. And on that note, what’s so shocking about it?! At least they got the part about Ru deserving it right.

Welcome to the Men's Group

From: Favorite Hunks & Other Things

What Happens when Men become brutally honest?

 Back in 2014, when putting together a feature on actor Timothy Bottoms, I mentioned his upcoming film, The Men's Group. Well, the film is completed, and will be released soon with some rather unexpected, but welcome surprises. Those surprises come in the form of a hilarious nude scene featuring pretty much the entire male cast including Bottoms, David Clennon, Stephen Tobolwsky and little Andy, (all grown up) from The Facts Of Life, McKenzie Astin.

Writer and producers Joseph Culp and Scott Ben-Yashar are raising money for the film's release, so I won't post any frontals, but they are offering a sneak peak of the film to those who donate to back the film's release. If you make a small donation in the next 10 days, they're proving a full download of the movie. Check out more about the film at their campaign site:

Dirty Dudes

 September 16, 2011
From: Dude Tube
The US season of Big Brother just wrapped up, but the UK version is just getting started. Tattooed muscle stud Jay Mckay is one of the houseguests and he's the perfect mix of Jersey Shore & gay porn star. Thankfully the UK producers are a lot less prudish about showing the contestants in various states of undress.
