Weekly Wrap Up (Mar. 17 - Mar. 23)



Ho hum :(

First day of spring came and we got snow snow snow 😛 Definitely there are those of you out their that are giggling like skewl gurls on the playground ;) Well I hope your comeuppance comes soon :yes:.

So was looking for a place that I could find some more gay themed movies than Prime and Nexflix and then came across a free streaming service called Tubi which I believe is available in Canada and the US of A. Their is a lot of movies on there, some not so good quality and some good quality. Some in foreign languages with subtitles, others dubbed into English, others made in English. I sat around last weekend holed up at home watching nothing but movies. The thing was I was literally physically and mentally exhausted after. There seems to be soooo many gay movies out there that don't have happy endings. I mean, watching all the movies, one could say that gay relationships can't end happy :( .

I can think of a couple maybe higher budget ones that do. Love, Simon and Handsome Fella. So that is my question to you, can you tell me a happy ending gay movie this week? Maybe not all of us can stream it, so maybe don't put in a trailer or link as what is seen in the US of A, may not be able to be seen anywhere else. Even if they are ones that I might have to go to my vault and crack out my credit card to watch :P 

Okay, now onto the important stuff. What happened this past week on the GA News Blog 🥳

Monday, can you believe it has been a month since our last Signature Feature?

Then it was onto Tuesday where we got a Deep Dive on Romance :heart: 

This week of the month always means Wednesday is followed up to Monday with our Signature Feature Excerpt:

Thursday, GA was taken over by Valkyrie and her rag tag army of molting penguins, discussing the Poetry Anthology :P 

Friday, she was back to introduce the Friday Prompts:

Saturday was a whole new Writing Article on Violence :o 


I'm curious, even if you haven't followed this week, with this list, off the top of your head how many Words of the Day did you not know?

I'm curious, even if you haven't followed this week, with this list, off the top of your head how many Words of the Day did you not know?

One. Never heard of a muskellunge. Now, having looked at it, I hope I'm never introduced to one.

@wildone The move Sublet is good, if you haven’t seen it already. An aging travelogue writer goes to Israel to write and to recover from a personal loss, then with the help of a younger man he finds out that he’s not as emotionally dead inside as he thought he was. The ending is uplifting but unexpected.

Some other movies with happy endings:

Big budget films - Fire Island, Bros

Indies - Fair Haven, Pit Stop, Benjamin (these are kind of angsty, the first one has a tough theme, but do have happy endings)

International - Just Friends (this is cute in my opinion)
