Dustin Lance Black

anyone see the new movie "Milk" yet? dustin lance black wrote it. turns out he is mormon. who knew? he was the only mormon writer on the first two seasons of 'big love,' which is one of the greatest tv shows of our time.

this interview is a pretty interesting listen. it is a pretty good take on mormonism, prop 8, and writing for film and screen. please listen to it now. it's essential for understanding this issue, imho.

no anonymous, that is not what meant. if I had meant that I would have written that.

FYI fans of Mormon media--the 'life of the party'guy in the new Real World Brooklyn is Mormon.

i love this: "no, anonymous, that is not what i meant." calling someone "anonymous" might be something i could get into. it's funny and casually belittling all at once. golden. i LOVED black's interview here. loved it. like, dustin lance black is my new gay crush. thanks for posting this.
