  • It’s rather surprising that Nickelodeon allowed John K to do what he did for so long. ‘Twas the golden age of Nickelodeon.

  • Oh, and I don’t think it’s so much the case that RHPS is “gay,” as it is that it’s “counter-cultural.” But it’s certainly the case that the themes are illustrated by various LGBT characters, etc.

  • Another great episode, guys. Sorry, Matty, I heard Gaylo Reach-around from my friend Sham at least six months ago, so yeah it has already been out there. I would love to watch Iron Giants, though. That idea sounds like the perfect sequel to the original. I didn’t watch Ren & Stimpy after it left Nickelodeon, so that them being gay is news to me.

    I promise I will try to keep this succinct. Also, yes, I realize this is a month and a half late, but I just listened to this pod cast! :-)

    I don’t think it is accurate to call RHPS a “gay” film. Certainly the gay community has embraced for its themes, similar to how they’ve adopted The Wizard of Oz. Just like he says in his Sweet Tea song, he’s a Sweet Transvestite from Transsexual Transylvania… I take it that while he may have the body of a male (and refer to him in the masculine sense) that he is neither male nor female.

    Does Rocky Horror have homosexual elements? Yes. But there is also some straight action with Rocky and Janet. What about the incest between Magenta and Riff? You could even construe that Columbia and Magenta are doing more than spying on Rocky & Janet. What about cannibalism?

    Rocky explores various themes, “Give yourself over to absolute pleasure” or “Don’t Dream It Be It” have almost become cliche. I also like to look at it from the point of view of Riff Raff, Frank N Furter has just completely lost touch with reality “your lifestyle’s too extreme” and has given into excess. Plus I think his feelings were hurt. Its easy to read into this, but at the end of the day its just a campy movie that parodies old sci-fi/horror movies.

    I’m in a Rocky Horror cast, and although we do have gay members there are certainly more hot straight girls and straight guys than there are gays or lesbians. I can’t say this is true of every cast, but I am friends with people from six other casts throughout the country (Los Angeles, Orlando, New Jersey, Massachusetts) and its roughly the same. I’ll let you in on a secret, some of us don’t even like the movie! The movie isn’t the reason we go do the same thing week after week, its the atmosphere, the camaraderie, and the acceptance.

    What I love about our cast is that there’s such diversity. We’ve got geeks, gamers, divas, stoners, ravers, college students, college dropouts, etc. etc. and everyone sorta blends in with each other really nice. We’ve got a kid who makes minimum wage delivering pizza and a guy who makes six figures performing next to each other.

    Anyway’s, I hope this didn’t come off as negative or a bitter diatribe, I’m only offering my POV.

    Fair point. It’s still gay.

    Everyone’s entitled to an opinion! ;-)
