YouTube Pulls Controversial Music Video With Graphic Gay Sex After It Racked Up 700,000 Views


WANT A LESSON IN GAY SEMIOTICS? and more than you bargained for?? so...a few weeks ago, Brendan Maclean shows up to guest with me in melbourne and while in soundcheck, mentions "tra la la i'm making a porny video, i just finished shooting it, tra la la" the way someone else would off-handedly mention they just got their bangs trimmed, or just discovered that their local organic shop now stocks that tea you like in bulk.

and then a few nights ago he was guesting with me in melbourne again and was like " i am making you sit here and you will watch my new video" and so there i sat, because i will basically do whatever brendan tells me, because i love him.

and at first i was like: "aw, this is lovely!" and then i was like: "ohh, this is naughty!" and then i was like "this is fucking brilliant".

and then i was like:

holf fuck me i think brednan maclean needs a nobel prize, some kind of youtube nobel bravery peace prize.

and yes, i can see why it got banned.


it isn't all fun and games. he's been getting a lot of hate on the internet for having made this video, both from the exxxtreme christians and from some parts of the queer community who think he just didn't do it right.

i think he did it right.

AND COME SEE HIM OPEN FOR ME IN ADELAIDE. there are still tickets for both shows, and he's flying over from melbs just to be fabulous with me. this friday and saturday at Her Majesty's Theater.

people. Brendan Maclean defends "House of Air" as art: "This was never a 'marketable' idea, but it was an original one that I cared about. Was it for everyone? Absolutely not. Has it been the most success I've had with anything ever? Absolutely."

the couple in front of us, boarding the plane in new zealand. don't worry, i asked permission. o my god i love them so much.
