"I have the weirdest boner"

that's the number one comment on youtube for this German video/short film by Cold Star. Watch and tell me, is it loaded brilliance or pretentious masturbation?


Not really clear on much here, but I'd much rather be in that pool than out of it.

The freedom of diving into the fluidity of sexuality and gender roles. The sublimation of desire results in a sad affair with French Fries. I especially dig something beautiful we rarely see - intergen(d)erational hand-holding. It's gonna be okay, everything's fine says the drag queen with her defiant air of reassurance.

I'm gonna run with loaded brilliance.

I agree. The video/short film can best be described as loaded brilliance. Found your analysis of the film interesting. Howerver, came to the conclusion that so much can be read into the film. Furthermore, each of us can probably relate to one or more of the characters. So much can be taken/interpreted from the film. Thanks for putting it on your blog.

Thanks anonymous, and you're right. I love how everyone brings something unique to this - and will take something different away from it.

Maybe a little overdone with all the slo-mo, but a good message nonetheless, especially for us old guys.
Can someone hack the American Family Association's website and post it there? What a hoot that would be.
