Yes, you may be asking yourself “But isn’t that Tom Goss?” And yes, it is. Known more for his singer-songwriter and clothed performances, Goss has gone the actor route in Rob Williams’ new film Out To Kill slated for a summer release for film festivals and a holiday disc release.

The movie is described as

Perhaps not surprisingly, the abhorrent Jaymes is the victim in this intricate and witty “whodunit” murder mystery centered around a group of gay men living in a Florida loft complex. With its surprise ending and tropical location, the film offers a sexy, gay twist to the traditional murder mystery.

We can’t help but think there’s some inspiration for the Jaymes character by way of Cazwell. Well, that and the video. Watch and read more after the jump.



We’re not even sure what Big Dipper had in mind here, but we’re not complaining. The burly bear doesn’t rap in this video, but instead celebrates his #thicklife taking the sexiest shower of all time to Ciara’s “Body Party” along with some questionable antics with some colorful dranks that we had to excuse ourselves for.

While being irreverent, the homo-hopper knows how to be brilliant with sultriness, video effects and Gnarls Barkley homages. Directed and edited amazingly by Tobin Del Cuore, Big Dipper himself even gets some of the directing credit. We’re wondering what parts. The video is hard not to watch, but we are also developing a crush on Big Dipper too, so ya know, we had to.

We’re loving this tidbit from Nhojj and that high note. Sing it! He dropped this homemade video of “Little Brother” just this week and what better way to deliver the humpday blues.

OK, first of all, I have to admit we’re a little confused by this story as there seem to be many players and levels involved. Plus, it’s been a long day. But what I get out of this piece is this completely adorable video of folk icon Janis Ian playing the wine glasses and singing for the audiobook The Singer and the Song: An Autobiography of the Spirit by Miriam Therese. From

Miriam Therese, or MT as she is known by her friends, is credited with introducing folk music to the Catholic tradition.  Her first record, Joy is like the Rain, went gold in the 60s, and since then she’s written and recorded hundreds of songs, sold out Carnegie Hall, and touched hearts all over the globe with her one-of-a-kind folksy yet angelic sound.  (Watch the video above to see the unofficial Skyboat chorus celebrating MT’s music.)  Her fans are too many to be counted, but one of her biggest, the Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter—not to mention Audie Award winning narrator—Janis Ian, is to thank for making us aware of this amazing autobiography.  Per Janis and Skyboat’s proposal via Stefan’s agenting wizardry, Audible acquired the rights to this project, and we here at Skyboat were thrilled for the opportunity to produce and direct this wonderful story.

Hopefully the above helps, but OMG the video! I am just enchanted by it as I was with Ian when she spoke with me back in 2009. She’s a legend for sure but it’s her genuine down-to-earth approach to her work and the world that really remarkable – and of course, her music.

Either Christmas came late or comes way early from Ladi G. Not only did she just release this video for “Love Rants,” but she’s also offering her newest mixtape Problematic Remixes Revisited as a free download. And she covers her bases by offering up the clean version of “Rants” as a free download here. We like!

But first, check out the video after the jump.


In case you missed it, Vice did this impressive q & a with RZA founder and punk pioneer Lenny Zenith on Sunday. They catch up with Zenith to talk about being outed in school by a friend, the stresses of living as a boy in a time trans issues were so stealth, his work with current band The Tenterhooks and his activism for trans rights. From

Was your secret ever revealed?
It was during my senior year. A friend of mine kind of outed me. I confided in her and said, “I have something to tell you. I wasn’t really born a boy, and I go to school as a boy, but I was born a girl.” Well she told her dad…

Short and to the point but with lots of insight to a different time for trans peeps. And check out “Camp St.” performed by Zenith and RZA after the jump.


So Flair Gun is based in Dallas and right now (yes, this very instant) we’re under some major winter storm advisories and warnings. That same storm is also hitting Oklahoma where singer Eric Himan is based. While our part of town has yet to be hit by precipitation, Himan is already getting some and thus he posted this quick video for “Let It Sleet!” And yes, we’ll include this in Your Holigays Playlist.”
