  6. looks like a complete waste of time... an hour and a half on facebook is probably time better spent.

  7. I think this calls for a party.

    Is there already a drink called, Liberace? If not, let's go Gays... get on it!

  9. Man, they are bringing the gay with this! Thanks, Steven! If this is seriously your "retirement" picture, you're proving you're going out not giving a good goldarn what the skittish think.

  11. Can. Not. Wait. Even if it sucks it'll be great.

  14. @Steve, my sentiments exactly!

  15. Before the Liberace Museum closed it's doors, if you asked one of the docents about Liberace being gay, they would staunchly deny it and get all huffy and feather ruffly. The gift shop had the best videos about him. The one where he gives a private tour of his mansion was hilarious, and I'm sure served as inspiration to this generation's Liberace, Lady GaGa.

  18. This could be fabulous or it could be the next Showgirls. Either way I'm throwing a party when it's on TV.

  19. Steve nailed it. Lurid is the word of the day. Can't wait to see this gay fever dream.

  20. The glitter... the camp.... suhweeeet!

  21. This looks horrid... so of course I am going to live for it!!!

  22. Matt is rockin' that speedo! Looks like a lot of campy fun. The actors are talented so they might be able to add some nuance to the characters not that it's entirely necessary in this story but it wouldn't hurt. And for that extra touch of gay appeal...Debbie Reynolds!!

  23. @Pete N SFO
    Here is the Liberace Drink Recipe
    •1/3 shot Kahlua coffee liqueur
    •1/3 shot milk
    •1/3 shot Bacardi 151 rum
    *Pour in the Kahlua, layer the milk on top, and the Bacardi 151 on top of the milk. Ignite, let burn for about 10 seconds, blow out and shoot.
