Throwing Shade #53: Planet of the Apes & LP

| 0 comments

Let’s talk “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” Actually - let’s not. Because Bryan and Erin hated it so much that they weep for the future. Where my gay and lady characters at? At least we know there’s one new lady character in this crazy, messed up world: Thor! She’s taking care of business and not listening to the haters. Plus singer-songwriter LP stops by to whistle the theme song from Friends and sing us a song! If you ever wanted to see Erin cry behind a dog, you gotta watch.


Throwing Shade #52: Jack and Rachel Antonoff

Ghost the Musical is happening, everyone. So take your Advil and start warning your childhood secretaries that you’ll need a ride. At least, that’s how Bryan and Erin will be enjoying it. Plus, famous soprano Tamar Iveri got herself booted from Opera Australia by being homophobic. Luckily, Jack and Rachel Antonoff are on the show to turn the “Shade or No Shade” tables on Bryan and Erin. What a week!


Throwing Shade #51: The Pope and Sharon Van Etten

| 0 comments

Summer is here and you know what that means - It’s time for Bryan to trick a bunch of old women into going down the rides at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. And hold on to your hats, because the Pope got caught saying some dumb stuff about women, prompting Erin’s soon to be classic segment: "Dude, C’mon Man You Don’t Get It." Plus, the fantastic Sharon Van Etten is here to conduct a rousing rendition of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” You have to hear to believe!


Throwing Shade #50: Hobby Lobby and Musical Guest Rhett Miller

| 0 comments

Erin & Bryan went to a Robyn concert and they’ve got the mullets to prove it! Too bad the Supreme Court is ruining everything by letting Hobby Lobby (Mrs. Lobby if you’re nasty) refuse to pay for its employees’ birth control. It’s a good thing we have guest Rhett Miller to serenade us with a song and help us forget our troubles. 


Throwing Shade #49: The World Cup and Thinspiration

| 0 comments

Erin and Bryan are high on life! Or rather, high on martinis and gym floor Xanax. But at least it dulls the pain of Adam Richman from Man v. Food using the thinspiration hashtag, and homophobic slurs heard at the World Cup. It’s like we always say, “Late for Hale–Bopp, early for ‘mmmbop!’”


Throwing Shade #48: Rick Perry & E3

| 0 comments

We finally find out why Bryan's electric bill is so high. Hint: Think "The Banger Sisters" and 85 remotes. Plus Rick Perry throws his ten gallon hat into the ring to defend the Texas GOP's position on conversion therapy, and the makers of Assassin's Creed just don't have time to make a female character. Buckle up, kiddos!


Throwing Shade #47: Summer Vacay and Guest Mø

| 0 comments

Well, Bryan is back from Mexico and he brought with him his best friend Ruth and an army of feral cats. Plus the Texas GOP is taking one step forward, two steps back (MC Skat Kat style) in their party platform language. Luckily guest Mø is here to sing and make everything right again.


Throwing Shade #46: Jill Abramson & The Harvey Milk Stamp

| 0 comments

Bad news! The electric company owes Bryan $10,000! But don't worry because there's also...great news! The new Harvey Milk stamp is out and available at a post office near you! But back to the bad news. Some of us still have problems with women in the workplace, even though we don't think we do. You know what they say - you take the good, you take the bad, you take them both, and then you have...mostly bad news.


Throwing Shade #45: Gay Cartoons & Summer Weddings

| 0 comments

"How to Train Your Dragon 2" is getting a new gay character! Plus, being a wedding guest costs more than $500 per wedding now! It's hard to believe. As hard to believe as Gwyneth Paltrow in Seven.


Throwing Shade #​44: ​Burning Man and Korean Plastic Surgery

| 0 comments

Erin tries to get Bryan to go to Burning Man and we all learn about Brigham Young's terrible survey making skills and South Korean plastic surgery. Happy summer!!
