Hollywood Slash

Everyone have a nice weekend? Good. As did we.

Last night Lisa and I found ourselves watching Velvet Goldmine, a strange little movie that's basically a thinly veiled retelling of the boy-on-boy relationship of David Bowie and Iggy Pop. It's a bit kinky, to say the least, with a really good soundtrack (if you're a Glam Rock fan). Plus it's got two sci-fi geek culture icons, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Batman, getting hot and heavy in a scene should fuel the imaginations of thousands of slash fanfic writers, and the highly amusing Eddie Izzard playing a high-powered agent. It's slashtastic.
