BDCTV = Celebrity Party

Posted in Uncategorized on November 8, 2010 by browndowncrown

Jenna Riot and I just premiered BrownDownCrownTV Episode 3: I Know What You Did Last Summer With That Celebrity at the K’Vetsh 14th birthday party (for those who don’t know, K’Vetsh is one of SF’s longest running open mic nights…. but kind of so much more). They pulled out an all star line up — Michelle Tea, Jenny Hoyston and Tara Jepsen with their band Lesbians, Beth Pickens telling an amazing story about fiber, Dave End singing from his musical F.A.G.G.O.T.S. which I am so excited to hopefully see in SF soon, Chris Vargas and Greg Youmans, Vero Majano, Kari Orvik, DJ Tanner and Kirk Read. It all takes place in the lobby of a bathhouse Bette Midler style. Huge thanks to K’Vetsh — which is the main reason BDCTV even exists!

Check it out and tell yr friends — BDCTV3 !

BDC is Back and Wants to PARTEE

Posted in BrownDownCrown, HARD FRENCH, Partee on November 8, 2010 by browndowncrown

Hey all —

BrownDownCrown had to take a few months off to do some incredibly awesome things — the most exciting of which is the dance party, HARD FRENCH. The party is put on by six amazing folks in San Francisco (one of which is BDC’s Devon Devine), and we just wrapped up a mind blowing season. The party took us to NYC and Toronto, we had a celebrity WhiteTightRight guest DJ John Cameron Mitchell and coming up in January is a winter ball at a haunted lodge in the Santa Cruz Mountains! Its a simple formula — daytime soul party with a BBQ, photo booth and the most mixed ass crowd of folks on a huge back patio in the Mission. We just wrapped up our season finale this weekend which happens to coincide with the resurrection of BrownDownCrown the blog and TV show! Find out more on our facebook page… and we are glad to be back reporting on all things brown and down!

The Oscars were important and all but everyone knows its all for white people movies. Every now and then some ladies and brown people sneak their way in as winners (with wins for Mo’Nique and Kathryn Bigelow this year) but the REAL awards are here at BDC Headquarters. As we approach our one year anniversary as a blog we are are announcing — THE BACON WRAPPED LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD!! Really, there was no one more deserving of this PRESTIGIOUS honor than MO’NIQUE.

Her role in Precious is phenomenal. She is the highest paid entertainer on the BET network for her late night talk show. She has been a longtime supporter of fatties through her comedy specials and books (Never Trust a Skinny Cook and Skinny Women Are Evil: Notes of a Big Girl in a Small Minded World).
And of course her 6 year stint on The Parkers! Her brutal honesty and adoration of the big girl makes her one of the most beautiful people in Hollywood right now. Honestly, we have so much to say about Mo’Nique and her funny moments and breakthrough achievements that it is almost impossible to list them all!

The icing on the cake is her the way she honored actress Hattie McDaniel – the first African American Actress to win a best supporting actress- at the Oscars this year. Not only by thanking her in her speech but, as she stated after her win:
The reason why I have on this royal blue dress is because it’s the color
that Hattie McDaniel wore in 1940 when she accepted her Oscar. The
reason why I have this gardenia in my hair, it is the flower that Hattie
McDaniel wore when she accepted her Oscar. So for you, Miss Hattie
McDaniel, I feel you all over me”

I know this is not shocking news to BDC readers but in the past 73 years only FOUR black ladies have won best supporting actress?!? I guess there were a few years in there where Brown people were busy fighting for EQUAL RIGHTS but come on!!

Check out the beautiful Hattie McDaniel’s acceptance speech back in 1940:

The brilliance of xEmoBoy1987x‘s videos is exactly what we look for in a BACON WRAPPED ICON – hot brown chubby femme EMOGAYSIANS (yes people, asians are brown too — anyone who is not WHITE is BROWN in our world!) with gold bows deep throating marshmallows on long pointy skewers making videos for the WHITETIGHTRIGHT boyz they love. Whoa momma! Check out ALL his videos to hear his postmodern poetry and ramblings of a future icon and hopefully it will bring as much tears to your eyes as it does his because of “all the hair products in his bangs.” Dear EMOBOY1987 – YOU HAVE AN OPEN INVITATION TO MAKE A VIDEO FOR BDCTV!! Love, BDC

a video dedicated to Myles Cooper and tho we have never seen a white boy look so nick jr. cute singing to puppets with dancing strawberrys and muffins we can only hope EMOBOY will have a starring role in Myles’ next video:

and an ode to HUNX from Hunx and his Punx:

BDC hearts GAYZ on BSG

Posted in BSG, DZ drama, nerd alert, Toran, world takeover on February 24, 2010 by browndowncrown

The only thing nerdier than loving Battlestar Galactica is discovering it a year after the four season stint has ended. Maybe its just us here at the BDC world headquarters, but we thought it was kind of a known scientific fact that in the future the world is going to be ALL BROWN (jealous?) but I guess its ok to throw some whiny white folks for some diversity on TV. But as FEMINISTS,HOMOSEXUALS and PUNKS, BDC was left wondering — when the Cylons nuked the planets — where did THEY all go? There may be some spoilers for those hardcore fans but in the end if you were that hardcore you probably already watched the entire series three times and these tiny bits of information don’t really give away any major plotlines. With that warning — read at yr own risk my BDC BSG fans…

Our first answer came in the form of a TV movie called Razor that gives us a glimpse into the Battlestar Pegasus and reveals that Commander Helena Cain was actually a POWER HUNGRY LESBIAN who was doing it with a CYLON (Ilene Chaiken eat yr L Word heart out with that storyline). Sure she was a little crazy and basically freaked her frackin frack when she found out her lover was a robot but what modern day DZ hasn’t?

Although its not officially on the actual series but via the BSG’s webisode series, Face of the Enemy, we do find out that the hella sexy and hella brown Lt. Felix Gaeta (pronounced GAYta) is a big ole pervy queer who likes it both up the butt and with robots. The entire webisode series gives us a deeper glimpse through flashbacks into his life on New Caprica (and him falling for a Cylon) as his lover set out on a quest to save Gaeta who is on a ship that did not make a jump with the rest of the fleet.

The lack of queerness on the show, according to executive producer and writer David Eick (via this pretty horribly written article that assumes all gays need is a shirtless jock to watch a tv show) is mostly due to the fact that they are too busy fighting Cylons to worry about giving each other bjs.

And that leave us with Caprica — the newest spin off from the BSG series that takes place 58 years BEFORE the Cylon attacks and stars a wide eyed 13yo Bill Adama before he ever thought he would be trying to find Earth for a living. This show which is attempting to gain a larger audience than BSG (i.e. – ladies, teens, queers, freaks, goths?) is jam packed with the most important elements of any tv show – gayz, cults, teen angst, polygamy, ritualistic murders and Eric Stoltz. We find out that young Bill Adama’s bad ass uncle, Sam Adama, is married to some dude named Larry and in between being HOT and COVERED IN TATTOOS he is killing people and blowing up buildings. Is this the Dynasty of the future? I don’t know but someone over at SYFY channel realized all the gays really want is a shirtless inked up homosexual gang member to tune in. He’s also from the BROWN PLANET – TORAN – which we’re not sure if you have to actually be brown or just have a good tan… but in any case they do brown things like eat meat, play with bones and get discriminated against. Check out what all those tattoos mean here and we’ll keep you updated on any juicy gay gossip that emerges from BSG and Caprica.
