NEWS: IN BETWEEN MEN, Tina Sloan, Agnes Nixon, GLEE

Agnes Nixon to young women entering industry: Be proud of yourselves and don’t sell yourselves short
When she was a student at Northwestern University, Nixon was the only writer among her classmates and friends of actors and actresses. The very person who inspired her to take a different path was another frontman of electronic media, who was also honored with the “Giant of Media” title.

“One night I heard Norman Cowen broadcasting ‘On a Note of Triumph.’ I knew I made the right choice,” Nixon recalled.

As an encouragement to young women entering the media industry today, Nixon said, “Be proud of yourselves and don’t sell yourselves short.”

Tina Sloan advises women to not let life walk all over them

Elvis and James Brown are still #1 and #2 overall.

Sony's Google TV remote looks like it was designed blindfold. In the 1980s
Google haven’t often seen design as a priority, which has led to some rather ugly products. Useability, however, the aspect of design that concerns itself with the ease with which we learn how to operate things, is rather a strong point for them. Which is why it was something of a surprise to see a giant brick of a remote control in a demonstration of the upcoming Google TV system.

So What Exactly Is a "Golf Lesbian?" More on IN BETWEEN MEN
IN BETWEEN MEN is new web series, supported by Marc Jacobs, that, according to its publicist "is about masculine, gay men who feel caught between two worlds. Obviously, they are not straight, nor do they identify with the behaviors of mainstream gay social scene for the most part, so they live somewhere in between." The series will have seven 10 minutes episodes beginning in November (premiere episode TBA).

This means a lot for gays men in sports. As you know, the climate in professional American sports is so inhospitable that no athlete in the major leagues -- NFL, MLB, NBA -- has ever come out while still playing. Sports is far behind most of society in this respect.
