Chloe Sevigny Impersonator Marries Two Bears
It has recently come to our attention that Drew Droege, the mastermind behind the brilliant YouTube series "Chloe," has officiated a gay wedding.
Droege, who parodies the one and only Chloe Sevigny in a series of online videos, recently officiated the marriage between David Hawe and John Paul Kane.
In the video titled "Nuptials" (pronounced nup-tuals) Droege marches down a flight of stairs to Hi Fashion’s "Amazing." He then tells the wild tale of how he and his friends Matthew Simpson Fluffy Soufflé and Josh Broskoski came to learn that he needed to provide the nuptials for the couple’s wedding.

Yikes - what’s next for Big Bird? A spit?
Yikes - what’s next for Big Bird? A spit?
First Mitt Romney said he would "fire" Big Bird and the rest of the "Sesame Street" cast by defunding PBS in Wednesday night’s debate.
Then last night Rick Santorum, his rival for the GOP Republican nomination, went on CNN and addressed the issue. Let’s just say the Big Bird should seek a Presidential pardon (like the lucky turkey does at Thanksgiving).
Talking to CNN anchor Piers Morgan, Santorum explained to CNN anchor Piers Morgan that as a Senator he voted not to fund PBS.
"I’ve voted to kill Big Bird in the past," he said when asked about his position on the issue. "So, I have a record there that I have to disclose. That doesn’t mean I don’t like Big Bird. I mean, you can kill things and still like them, maybe to eat them, I don’t know."
Realizing what he said might be perceived as "inelegant" (to quote Romney’s description of his 47% remark), Santorum said, "Can we go back on that one? That’s a bad Youtube moment right there."
The snafu about Big Bird and the budget became a leading talking point after Wednesday’s Presidential debate in which Romney vowed to defund PBS if elected president. The GOP candidate not only fired Big Bird, but the debate’s moderator, Jim Lehrer, who is the NewsHour Executive Editor. "I’m sorry, Jim," Romney said. "I’m going to stop the subsidy to PBS. I like PBS. I love Big Bird. I like you too."
On "Saturday Night Live" Big Bird made an unscheduled appearance, but was surprisingly non-partisan. As he put it, he didn’t want to "ruffle any feathers."
Chris Crocker goes Maverick
It was a video that made Chris Crocker a star - okay, an Internet sensation - with his "Leave Britney Alone" YouTube video in 2007. Since then the video’s had 44 million views.
Since then the Tennessee native has continued to make vlog entries on YouTube, released a number of singles and was the subject of a recently aired HBO documentary "Me at the Zoo."
He said in 2007: "I’m going to make the leap from living with my Pentecostal grandparents to living with drag queen roommates. I’m going to star in my own TV show. I’m going to make the leap from outhouses to bathhouses...to my very own house."
This week he lived up to the "bathhouse" promise by making his long-awaited porn debut. Initially he was going to appear in a video for Chi Chi LaRue, but that project was sidetracked by his involvement with the documentary. With that behind, Crocker returned to his porn debut, making it this week the Boston-based bareback site The Maverick Men (NSFW), which has released an x-rated trailer featuring Chris and his now-ex, Justin Goble. The full scene debuts on the site October 4.
About starring in porn, Crocker wrote on his Tumblr page:
"The mere NOTION that someone can be intelligent, talented, and do porn on the side is jarring and impossible to most. (Not all, I know you supporters are out there reading this as well. I am not focusing ONLY on the narrow-minded.) Don’t get me wrong: I am not painting an impossibly pretty picture for the sake of changing anyones minds. It IS difficult. I have to wonder about an array of things it will interfere with. Here are some of the most commonly asked issues..
"The being in relationship aspect: It all starts with trust. I tell my amazing partner everything. I tell him when a twink asks about doing a 3-way with us. I tell him when I think someone is attractive. I tell him my fantasies involving us with others. We do NOT have an "open relationship", we do however have an OPEN MINDED relationship.. and the fact I share everything with him allows us to have 10000% trust. Plus, he knows there is a difference between me sharing my body with the internet and the way I share my body/soul/heart with him. Also, any porn endeavors I accept will include him in some capacity...
"Sharing my sex life and sexual desires is no different than my day-to-day intimate videos, in MANY ways. It’s me letting down a wall most of society keeps up. That’s my only talent. Being my 100% self on camera- The self most of us try to hide. Bringing the shadows of who we are to light...
"PS- What is porn anyway? ;) Is it doing a shameful, crass act on camera.. because if so, I screwed myself on camera years ago."
Queerty also reported of another Crocker project: "Chris Crocker is giving legitimate film another go, pairing with actress Maria Conchita Alonso and Dante’s Cove star Charlie David in a new unnamed comedy from Scenes from a Gay Marriage director Matt Riddlehoover."
