C.R.A.Z.Y.

I really should be preparing for a class presentation tomorrow, but I also really felt like posting about a movie I watched earlier today. It was a French-Canadian movie called C.R.A.Z.Y. and I absolutely loved it. For anyone familiar with gay cinema, you will also be familiar with cheesy plotlines and melodramatic acting. C.R.A.Z.Y. has none of that. C.R.A.Z.Y. didn't feel like a gay movie despite having a clearly homosexual story about a gay son trying to remain close to his not very accepting father. This is one of my favorite movies now. If you have netflix, you can watch it online. If you don't have netflix, you really should try to find the movie and watch it.

(Sorry the trailer is in French with no subtitles, I couldn't find a subtitled version)

Getting to Know You

I'm not the best at updating this blog on a regular basis, but I do read blogs of other people nearly every day. SO... I was thinking it might be nice to know who (if anyone) reads my blog. Instead of just posting to ask that people leave comments saying they read my blog, I thought I'd introduce myself to any new readers and THEN ask that you leave just a simple little comment on this post saying that you read my blog.

So here goes:

I go by the pseudonym "Captain Midnight." I am a 24 year old gay Mormon living in Provo and currently attending my first semester at Utah Valley University. I recently left BYU because I couldn't stand it there any more. I have been with my boyfriend for over a year and I love him so incredibly much. My parents know I'm gay but they don't know I have a boyfriend. My siblings have not yet been told anything about my sexuality. I have a fairly large network of gay friends in Provo (if you're in the area and want to meet new people, let me know). Even though I'm not really attending church anymore, I don't have any bitter feelings toward the church (though I occasionally get frustrated with its members). I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs. I don't even drink coffee. I like iced tea and herbal tea, but are those even really against the word of wisdom anyway? Also, I tend to swear like a gay sailor, but not the F-word.

I'll post more things about me later, I'm sure. So now, if you don't mind, I would love it if you would just leave me a quick comment so that I can know if people actually read my blog :)
