Pleasantly surprised to discover "The Other Two" on Comedy Central, which I can only describe as the love child of "The Comeback" and "Barely Famous" -- two of my favorite shows of the 21st century. Drew Tarver and Helene Yorke are brilliantly understated as Cary (a struggling gay actor) and Brooke Dubek (a onetime aspiring dancer), the perpetually humiliated older siblings of a newly minted YouTube sensation turned superstar, Chase Cubek -- stage name ChaseDreams.
Molly Shannon is adorable as Pat Dubek, the ever egalitarian mother who tries to give her fledgling off-spring as much love and attention as Chase, who also has an opportunistic manager named Street (played by Ken Marino). The series was created by openly gay Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider, who previously served as head writers on “Saturday Night Live.” They are also the show's executive producers.
And if the premise hasn't roped you in yet, the show's explicit gay content might. Cary's sexually confused roommate -- Matt, played by the incredibly hot Andrew Ridings -- is reason enough to tune in. More proof HERE.
P.S. But unlike "The Comeback," we won't have to wait nine years for more as it's already been renewed for a second season!
Have been wondering how Lindsey Buckingham's recovery has been going -- then had dinner with a friend who encouraged me to check out the ex-Fleetwood Mac member's 1992 solo effort, "Out of the Cradle." The album bombed -- it peaked at No. 128 on the Billboard 200 -- but I was not given incorrect information. Was hard to pick just one song to feature, but this one definitely gets the point across. Hard to see how this wasn't a smash.

I'm awfully glad the American public is finally hearing from someone inside Trump's inner circle what the failed businessman is really about. But between the Republican grandstanding and Michael Cohen's own disgustingness, I have no desire to actually listen to it. Will this be the first stop on the long journey toward getting GOP senators to finally face what really needs to be done? Only time will tell. But it sure is idiotic for Trump hangers-on to dismiss Cohen's credibility for being a "convicted felon." That's his status due to a) confessing everything and b) having committed crimes on behest of ... Trump.
My colleague got the giggles after hearing Cohen mention a Trump associate named Matthew Calamari -- and it's even funnier when you read where Trump dug this guy up!

Thought I recognized that voice during the Tiafoe-Thompson match in Acapulco -- it's everyone's favorite out-adjacent* former tennis player. What a great addition to the team!
*It means you've never come out in a way that would be of help to other gay athletes or children but you do post your big gay life on social media.
Colleague Steve Weissman was quick to post this!
