Jesse Archer Has Fire Island Web Series in the Works

Fire Island has long been established as New York’s “Gay Summer Wonderland” and in recent years has had an influx of international visitors keen to spend time in this truly unique resort, almost exclusively populated by gay men during the summer months.

What better place for a gay comedy series?!

A new comedy series from the creators of

A Four Letter Word & Violet Tendencies

Jesse Archer and Sean Hanley.

Fire Island Pines is where the sun meets the sand—free of hesitation, oppression, or explanation!  It’s the fantasy every gay man dreamed of as a child—The Island of Misfit Boys!

Check your inhibitions on the mainland and hop aboard the fairy ferry to a land where carefree men frolic in the skimpiest fashions as if the stuffy outside world didn’t exist.  Stroll exclusive boardwalks where the flip-flops are fierce and the only thing stronger than the golden Adonis-like men are the cocktails at Low Tea!

Take a peek into the lives of one summer house in Half-Share.  Sometimes debaucherous, usually randy, and always outrageous…  When you share a house on Fire Island with six gay men, anything can happen.  And often does!

We live in the Web 3.0 world, where anything is possible.


Video may have killed the radio star, but the internet is definitely reviving the careers of the TV star!  When Lisa Kudrow (Friends) was unable to get the roles she wanted, she decided to co-produce the original Internet comedy Web Therapy.  After three successful online seasons, Showtime was so impressed they bought it for their lineup.  Similarly, the TV hospital spoof Childrens Hospital (Rob Corddry—Hot Tub Time Machine), was launched as a web-series and just made its network premiere after being snapped up by the Cartoon Network. 

Today, content creators are easily able to distribute through many avenues: DVD (compilations in this case), Video On Demand, iTunes, YouTube, Netflix, and future revenue generating outlets of online streaming.  Apple has iTunes and Apple TV, Microsoft has built Windows Media Center into virtually every copy of Windows 7, Google TV is on the horizon, and all of Google’s increasingly popular Android phones come with the YouTube app pre-installed.

HALF SHARE is utilizing all of these tactics, in addition to taking advantage of new media technology (when it is released) to ensure that Half-Share becomes the kind of success detailed in the examples above. 

More details  soon! Check out Jesse’s  blog for more info~!

MEANWHILE  grab  Violet Tendencies
on DVD coming in May!

Written by Jesse Archer and Directed by Casper Andreas. 

At 40, Violet is the racy, fun-loving belle of the ball. She spends her nights as royalty, but when the party ends, she always heads home alone. While her co-worker Riley struggles with his boyfriend Markus going baby-crazy, and her roommate Luke tackles monogo-mania, Violet’s romantic life is one big bellyflop.

Chasing love and lust at all costs, she may find them in the most unlikely of a straight boyfriend.

A film festival favorite and rated 4 out 5 by many! This is a must-see if you haven’t already.

Joe Oppedisano and His Masculine Male Images in Photography

His men are classic strong  figures,
masculine and confident.

They force the viewer to sit up, take notice of their command and sexual allure that has no shame or remorse.

 You know what photographer I am talking about, right?  New York’s Joe Oppedisano.

The details of his images are sometimes immediately noticeable, sometimes, you must look again and again to see the tiniest piece of information that was missed in the first several glances, but they are the details that pull the photograph together, and bring the world of Joe Oppedisano’s photography 360 degrees. These are the defining characteristics that have earned him the comparisons to Caravaggio, Tom of Finland, and more recently named him the most obvious heir to Robert Mapplethorpe, as well as his body of work to date, the face of his generation.

 Joe  first studied fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. After a short stint as stripper ! he worked as a fashion editor for W, Vanity Fair, L’Uomo Vogue and others. Only in America, RIGHT?!

At the age of 30 he decided to never again dress up like a model and taught himself photography.
He lives and works in New York City.

His new book coffee-table book, Brutal Truth: Muscular, Tough Machos , just came out!

Monday Nights in Brooklyn – Pizza and Go-Go Boys Shake it Up!



A match made in heaven! 

It’s called Fondle and it happens every Monday night at South Brooklyn Pizza in Carroll Gardens. It’s a neighborhood scene with local boys, dance anthems and a drink special. Dancing boys take to the floor at 11.

The Monday night Go Go Pizza Party launched quietly in February by Bastard Life Editor and noted LGBT enthusiast Neal Boulton.  Now police are investigating, of course.

The Brooklyn Paper reports:

Police say they will investigate a Carroll Gardens pizzeria that features scantily clad male go-go dancers once a week.

The weekly “Fondle” party, which started in February  didn’t get mentioned beyond the listings section of most newspapers. But on Sunday, the New York Times wrote about the gay-themed bacchanal, creating not only a maelstrom for the pizzeria, but renewing debate over whether tight-knit Carroll Gardens was truly welcoming to newcomers.


First, the maelstrom:


“That [Times article] was the first I heard of [Fondle] night,” Captain Kenneth Corey of the 76th Precinct, which covers Carroll Gardens, told members of the Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association on Monday night. “We’re going to determine the legality of it. If they’re outside of it, then we’re going to take action.”

A police source told The Brooklyn Paper that authorities would examine whether South Brooklyn Pizza violated cabaret license regulations.

The looming police threat evidently arose after the Times story revealed that a key detail about the “Fondle” party: it includes go-go dancers.

The article suggested that strippers are incompatible with the Old Gray Lady’s understanding of Carroll Gardens as an insular, old Italian neighborhood. The neighborhood, of course, is changing, and many of the newer residents don’t mind a gay go-go night.

“It doesn’t bother me,” said Omarr Stewart, who lives in the neighborhood. “I like to think of myself as a progressive.”

Others shared that liberal idea.

“To each his own,” said Michael Rosario, who works next door to the restaurant.

Come for the pizza, stay for the sauce!
