williebhines: connorratliff: “CLARK KENT” a short film In anticipation of the upcoming Man Of Steel, here is a short film I made using only the “Clark Kent” scenes from Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie (1978). I removed any overt references to Clark being Superman, and I changed the musical score. You COULD still view it as if he’s really Superman, or you could find your own meaning. I...

wonderfulthanks: Word: Kryptonite Guest: Michael Hartney Bio: If you’ve seen a show at the Upright Citizens Brigade in NY, there’s a good chance you saw the very busy Michael Hartney in it. He’s an actor on The UCBT Maude Team The Prom, has written his own show “So I Like Superman: A One-Nerd Show”… This was fun! These guys are great.

Omigod, hi, new followers! I promise I’m not all doom and gloom and righteous indignation and glorious gay activism. Here’s a funny sketch I’m in. It’s written and directed by Jocelyn Guest, and stars Amy Heidt, Jimmy Ray Bennett, the corpse of Tony Rodriguez, and me. Oh, and some chick named Kate McKinnon. I guess she’s on SNL or something? ;) Oh, and boycott DC...

I Just Wrote This To DC Comics
Hi, DC! My name’s Michael Hartney. I’m as big a Superman fan as you’ll ever meet. I have bought Superman comics every Wednesday since I learned to read, which was nearly 30 years ago. Superman was the subject of my blog and my one-man show. My name is tattooed on my arm in Kryptonian, for Zod’s sake. Oh, and I’m super-gay. I can’t and won’t support the...
The Chad Michaels interrogation scene from Rudunnit! From the A Few Good Men moment on, it played out exactly how I saw it in my head when I was writing it. Chad and Michelle absolutely crush it here.
The Phi Phi O’Hara interrogation scene from Rudunnit! The last joke is worded in a very Michael Hartney way, so it’s crazy to hear it in Michelle Visage’s voice.
The Latrice Royale interrogation scene from Rudunnit! I love how the “curves in all the right places…and some of the wrong ones” joke turned out.
Part one of Rudunnit! I wrote some goofy noirish dialogue here, and Michelle Visage and Sharon Needles absolutely kill it.
Everything’s coming up Logo these days! They’re doing a cool HIV-awareness PSA campaign with Avenue Q and Gilead. I wrote the web shorts that go “behind-the-scenes” of the on-air PSAs. Here’s the first!

This looks so cool and the queens (and Michelle) are awesome in it. I am dying of excitement.
