Frank La Terra's Agent Was Unavailable for Comment





Reader Mike Miller sent this one in to us (and made us wonder what sort of websites he has been frequenting, exactly):




Muscle-Man Vs. Skeleton Man: A Love Story

http://www.playbill.com/news/article/112292.html


"Two readings of Muscle-Man vs. Skeleton Man: A Love Story. . . the musical will be presented in November at Chelsea Studios.

"Directed by Richard J. Hinds, the readings will be held Nov. 5 at 6 PM and Nov. 6 at noon at the West 26th Street venue. The cast will include Brian Charles Rooney as the Sorceress, Adam Pellegrine as Prince Hector/Muscle-Man, Ginamaria Trello as Skeleton Man, Jalynn Yvonne Steele as Shaniqua, Richard Binder as Man With 4 Arms, Steven C. Rich as King Crusty/Harry and Sarah Bolt as Queen Butt/Evil Annie with Briana Carlson-Goodman, Andrea Dore, Kelley Faulkner and Dustienne Miller as the Greek Chorus.

"Muscle-Man was penned by Richard J. Hinds and Ginamaria Trello. The musical, according to press notes, is described as such: "Evil lurks in the mythical land of Queerternia, a peaceful territory full of glitter and dreams. Skeleton Man is on a rampage, terrorizing citizens. No one can stop him… until Sorceress grants Prince Hector special powers, transforming him from a puny weakling, into a heroic, powerful Muscle-Man. As Skeleton Man and Muscle-Man battle to rule Queerternia, they realize there is a thin line between love and hate. Can two sworn enemies find happiness in the sculpted arms of one another? Is peace possible for Queerternia?"

"The creative team for the musical, which is billed as "a hilarious and thrilling satire of the fantastic worlds of our youth," also includes Albin Konopka (music supervisor), Rachel Coffman (musical director) and Walter Shepherd (stage manager)."






Frank's been telling us all along. We just didn't listen.

We were talking about this at CBR last week:

It turns out that there is some seriously gay subtext to the old He-Man cartoons. (Not that there's anything wrong with it.)

I mean, when you have characters named Fisto and and Ram-Man and Extendar (who can make his limbs longer), that's moving beyond mere campiness and into Village People territory.

Or in the words of one Mexican He-Man fan at CBR, "Well, it is the story of a muscled man -wearing hairy trunks, no less- fighting over a muscled skeleton for the control of a purple sword. When you're a kid, you miss a lot of subtext, but right now you go...whoa!"

Who was that dude on She-Ra that had the little red heart on his chest? For some reason I want to say his name was Blaine Gayheart, but I might be wrong.

You can read gay subtext in anything if you try.

Ooh! Let's!

First up: PUERTO RICO.

Shellhead said...

The combination of exploiting slaves and "shipping" corn does potentially sound kind of gay. (Not that there's anything wrong with it.)

Michael Barnes said...

Fair enough.

AGRICOLA.

Shellhead said...

That all depends on whether the sheep on the box cover is male or female. Either way, that bearded guy is sure pressing his crotch up against it's rear. And chartreuse is such a festive color.

I was thinking AGRICOLA might be some kind of pidgin abbreviation for "Aggravated Colon"...

Ryan Walberg said...

For Chrissakes, I come here so that I *don't* have to hear about Agri-fucking-cola in every post.

Michael Barnes said...

But hey- there isn't anywhere else you'll get a line drawn between sodomy and AGRICOLA, now is there?

Ken B. said...

And that line, my friends, is VERY thin.

Thanks a lot! Now my co-workers wonder what websites I'm frequenting.

"Hey, that's a boardgame-blog!"

"Yeah,yeah allright. "Boardgames". Does you wife already know?"

Michael Barnes said...

I can't tell you how many times I said "Atlanta Game Factory" and some wiseacre said "Atlanta GAY Factory?"

Ken B. said...

Look, man...it's right there in the opening segment to the show.

I mean, who says "FABULOUS secret powers"?



Now does anyone know if there is any truth to the rumor that Man-at-Arms shaved his mustache because "Teela said it tickled"?

Bored gay geek, anyone?

Ken, this is the second time I'm aware of that you've asked this very question on F:AT. It's time to move on. Some questions are best left unanswered.

Shit, I've been here so long I'm starting to repeat gags.

If they had called the game GAY FACTORY FUN, I would have considered buying it.

Michael Barnes said...

Indeed Ken, Indeed.

Now how 'bout that Tom Vasel?

Reading a gay subtext into euros is hard. They're generally too conformist...pleasing bosses and lords, toiling in the fields, sweaty men working together in the heat of the summer...theres something about looking into the tired, yet gleaming, blue eyes of your working companion and knowing the corn will get out in time...in his eyes you can see the dream you share, of working hard enough in the fields to climb the ladder of serfdom, until you both can quit together and jet-set around the globe to be party to the latest auctions, buying and selling the latest trends of abstract art.

Oh! The Master's whip! Back to work, master needs another bathhouse...

I realize this is a very creative story, and I think the team was very well chosen because it was something which had to be really well planned.
