Ballroom Culture: Category is Television I: Madonna, "Paris" & More

Yes, you read that correctly, the category tonight is television. No, not characters in television – how ballroom culture has been portrayed on television and how media has been shaped by the underground LBGTQ culture (and vice-versa).

Solar Opposites Gives The Wall Some Michael Bay Movie Trailer Love

Fans of Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan's Solar Opposites should be feeling pretty good about the series' future.

We have seen anime brought to life before, but today we're switching things up. Today we talk about which live-action shows would make great anime.

Back in the old days, twenty years ago, we eagerly awaited the weekly episode of our favorite television series.
