mmm. gay.

I bought a bunch of clearance dollar videos at Half-Price Books to while away the time on my Couch of Sickness. I got In & Out, the movie where Kevin Kline's character, Howard, is outed on national television, throwing his life topsy-turvy.

They just got to the scene where he's listening to the masculinity self-improvement tape and "I Will Survive" starts to play and he's supposed to resist dancing to it (Tape Man: "Truly manly men do not dance." -- Howard: "Oh, come *on*!"), but he ends up boogying crazily around his house. I love that scene. When I first saw it years ago I actually cried a little; it really moved me despite the fluff of it all--seeing this man break out of his false straitjacket and feel joy in himself. I love Kevin Kline of course. He is a god.

Such is my afternoon as it segues into evening. Pop culture and codeine-laced cough syrup.
