America Ferrera, Zachary Quinto et al. get Hot in Hollywood!

America Ferrera, Michael Urie, Becki Newton, Parminder Nagra, Linka Cardellini, Zachary Quinto, Jack Coleman, Sara Ramirez and many others ham it up to benefit Local AIDS Charities at the 2nd Annual Hot In Hollywood event.

The amazing Michael Medico began Hot In Hollywood as a project when he was a participant in the Self-Expression and Leadership Program. My friend Wonder Bright who was also one of the founders invited me.

The project has been embraced by the community and taken on a life of it's own. It was a truly inspriring evening.

Both songs are from her upcoming album Songs of Mass Destruction which is on my "must-buy" list. Actually, it is my "must-buy list. Don't know what it is about Lennox, but she just gets me every time.

13 Comic-Con Video Blogs: Bizarre, Behind-the-Scenes

What if you video-blogged Comic-Con without actually having Comic-Con in any of the videos?

Tim Fish and I set out to do that. The result: 2 clips that feature some of the highlights of Con itself, and 10 clips that feature me and Tim hanging out in hotels, talking about guys, mulling over which party to go. It's a bizarre, behind-the-scenes look at Comic-Con International.

The shit above is Anderson Gabrych posing with his favorite thing at Comic-Con.

I have to highlight this one, because it was so immediately popular once I uploaded it. My friend Joanne, a producer and development exec, always joins us for Con and at The Big Gay Dinner. Hanging out with her at Comic-Con is one of my favorite things, and several of the following video-blogs feature hijinks in her hotel room.

Tim and I ponder sleeping arrangements. And a clip with my favorite bits of the Conventions and Roger Klorese of Prism Comics talks about gay comics.

Tim and I discuss "The Comic-Con Dress." Later we ponder what to do with our evening.

We discuss which party to go to and long-haired guys. Tim in his underwear!

Joanne joins us at Baja Fresh. An incident with the champagne.

Joanne makes a confession and we talk size comparisons. A fond fairwell Comic-Con.

And here's a bonus clip of Joanne and I discussing the bedding at The Westin vs. the decor at The Sofia Hotel. Riveting!

Pictures from Comic-Con 2007

I spent last Wednesday through Sunday down at Comic-Con International. I'm amazed at how huge it is now. Saturday was sold out in advance, and Friday sold out during the event itself. The WB was handing out these huge bags that one fan wore on Sunday:

As usual I stayed with my friends Brian (who is now a viral video star due to "It's all because the gays are getting married...") and Tim Fish, artist and writer of Cavalcade of Boys. I just uploaded 72 pictures to my photostream, and here are some highlights:
