!! OMG, a premiere: ‘Little Time’ by Chris Cool !!


We are excited to premiere the music video for the wistful pop ballad “Little Time,” by multi-hyphenate artist Chris Cool (fka Antoine93).

The song might be moody, but the music video, co-directed by Nick Bostick, is a fast-paced, saturated summer adventure. Chris takes us into a hyper-real realm, where summer’s vibrancy collides with a distorted, delirious queer daydream.

Splashes of blue begin to take over everywhere. And if a sensory visual experience isn’t what you’re looking for, maybe the dripping wet hunks and twinks in this video are! Take it all in after the jump.

!! OMG, WATCH: Queer dark comedy series ‘I Hate People, People Hate Me’ releases Episodes 1 & 2 FREE online !!

An exploration of queer identity as queerness has become more mainstream and commodified, offbeat comedy I Hate People, People Hate Me, written/created by and starring comedian newcomer Bobbi Summers, is inspired tonally, in part, by films like Ghost World, Good Burger and Welcome to the Dollhouse alongside Summers’ diaries, written while in their 20s:

The show follows Jovi (Summers) and Tabitha (played by fellow writer/comedian Lily Kazimiera), two people perpetually disturbed by the world around them that have bonded over a mutual hatred of their peers and society at large, alongside suicidal feelings and drug abuse. The series was directed by Blake Mawson and co-stars Alden McWayne (AKA everybody’s favourite TikTok mullet-ed sweetheart, Gucci Pineapple).

They’ve just released the first TWO episodes for free. Find them both after the jump!

!! OMG, new music: ‘Bamboo’ by Ciel !!

DJ and producer Ciel will be dropping her debut album on November 24th, and so far we’re loving the first single “Bamboo”!

The music video dips your head into a lake, guiding you into a psychedelic trance with blurred pastel colors and flashing fishes as you float through the moody electronic track; an immersive experience punctuated by sharp edges of light.

Check it out, after the jump!

!! OMG, WATCH: Pitch black queer comedy series ‘I Hate People, People Hate Me’ to premiere in November on CBC Gem !!

Finally! A queer series that isn’t just a weepy coming-of-age about twunks in love… The self-deprecating humour of this seems right up our alley 😂.

Perpetually disturbed by the world around them, two friends navigate their lives as outliers in Toronto’s queer community. This offbeat comedy explores queer identity in a time when queerness has not only been mainstreamed, but commodified.

Creator and writer Bobbi Summers poses the question – who wants to fit in with society anyway? The CBC Gem original series stars Summers, Lily Kazimiera, Alden McWayne (aka Gucci Pineapple) and is directed by Blake Mawson (PYOTR495, Orville Peck‘s Hope To Die).

I HATE PEOPLE, PEOPLE HATE ME officially drops November 7th on CBC Gem in Canada. Check out the brand new trailer after the jump!
