Morning Brew – Thursday, Feb. 3: Britta and Annie from “Community” tease us, a new documentary is looking for gay siblings

You guys, the snowstorm killed my internet yesterday. It was awful. I couldn’t even Brew, and that was devastating. So now, I’m back, and I’ll say “better than ever” if such a thing is possible.

French reader Valoudi told us about a made-for-TV movie called A La Recherche Du Temps Perdu (In Search of Lost Time), based on the novel by Marcel Proust, that featured some lesbianism. In true Proust form, the whole thing is highly-sexual and very, very gay. Check out the NSFW trailer if you’d like a glimpse at the orgy. (No, seriously.)

Kate Clinton has penned a piece for The Progressive entitled “Congrats, Annette Bening! It’s Our Year!” It starts out:

Congratulations to Annette Bening on her Oscar nomination in THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT, for the role described by the NYT as “a controlling lesbian.” I say it’s about time! Time not just for Annette Bening to get an Oscar. It’s way past time for a controlling lesbian to be so honored.

The hilarity continues. Head over to read the rest of her accolades for manipulative gay women.

Are you in a Tegan and Sara situation? And by that, I mean are you gay and so is one of your siblings? Then you might want to get in touch with Liz Collier and Cat McShane who are hard at work on a documentary all about you. In an interview with The Most Cake, Cat explained her own experience.

My sister came out when I was 18 and she was about 21. I was pretty devastated by it actually, because I thought I was the gay one in the family but hadn’t quite figured it all out yet. I was nowhere near the stage of doing anything about it and I was quite a late developer in some respects, but her coming out to me … I thought there was no way I could come out now.

Shoot them an email if this sounds like something you want to be a part of.

Tired of waiting for the Arrested Development movie? In the meantime, you can play the boardgame, which you can print out to play at home. Done and done.


Do you watch Community? Do you ship Britta and Annie?

Well, you’ll have to continue writing fan fic because this photo is just part of a stunt from the cast, who put together some unlikely pairs and took some pictures, just for fun.

Congrats to Mary Bonauto, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) Civil Rights Project Director, and Attorney Martha Coakley for being named two of Boston magazine’s most powerful women in the city.

Blog that’s on my s–t list this week: The Jawa Report. They linked to a newstory this week about a journalist castrated with a cork screw. Their HILARIOUS joke following the link? “Isn’t that how Rachel Maddow got started?” No. No it isn’t.

Marathon TV was at Amber Heard‘s DJ gig in Los Angeles and shot this fun video.

Guess what’s back tonight? Calzona and Other Doctor-Types. I mean, Grey’s Anatomy. Here’s a sneak peek!

Canada, you are getting the Sophie-Sian storyline on Coronation Street so soon! Are you psyched?

Funny or Die has a message from teens to the Parents Television Council regarding their Skins uproar.

It’s so true. The PTC are the best PR the show could have asked for.

Do you remember when we ran the WB series Joni & Susana? It was one of the best things we’ve ever put on the site, in my opinion. Bridget McManus had a hilarious cameo, and the whole thing was NSFW and super funny. At any rate, out writer/actress Joni Lefkowitz is working on a new production called Unscreened. The plays are performed every Monday night in Los Angeles at the Zephyr Theater and the cast includes Adrianne Palicki, Shannon Woodward and Zosia Mamet, among others. Once again, you win, Los Angeles!

Today on TV: The Ellen DeGeneres Show (check local listings), A Baby Story (TLC 9 a.m.), Laughing Matters (Logo 1:30 p.m.), The Talk (CBS 2 p.m.), House (USA 5 p.m.), The Rachel Maddow Show (MSNBC 9 p.m. and midnight), Grey’s Anatomy (ABC 9 p.m.) and Private Practice (ABC 10 p.m.) (Thanks Roni!)

I am going to be at the Creating Change Conference in Minneapolis tomorrow, so I won’t be Brewin’, but I’ll try to convince Heather Hogan to do it so you guys don’t have to go without two Brews in one week. I’m nice like that!

Until next week!
