______________________

We’re all familiar with James Bond 007, but have you ever met Jayson Bend 009? If not you’re in for one heck of a gay ride – a really, really, reallyyyy gay ride. Matt Canter decided to put a queer spin on the old James Bond formula and created ‘Jayson Bend: Queen and Country‘ – rip-roaring queer adaptation of the James Bond we all know and love (except ‘Quantum of Solace’ – does anyone like that one?).

Exploding dildos, smoking condoms, and a car with built in Grindr?!? Sign me up! When I first watched the film I remember rolling my eyes for the first few minutes, but then… the opening credits sequence. My god the opening credits sequence is PERFECT! It’s exactly like every other 007 movie except they replaced the sexy girls with guys (and references to hair products – more on that later). It’s truly a stroke of genius and executed outstandingly. I could sit through 10 minutes of it. After that I was ready for anything and boy does JB keep the hits coming! After Jayson recovers a microchip from a murderous salon employee, he’s informed by ‘L’ that it contains genetic data that might be related to a satellite being sent into space by the owner of a mega salon corporation. What?? Uh, ok. Yeah sure. Let’s get to the gadgets!!

Sure enough JB delivers and we get to head down to G’s lair of fun gadgets where we get to see the condom that can fill a room with smoke in 1 minute, the wristwatch that can control his car, and some tracking stickers. Soon we’re whizzed off to Switzerland where Jayson can track down a cute Chinese geneticist who might know more about the potential evil plot. Helping him out is Alec DeCoque – just wait until you hear him pronounce his name – a cute Swiss guy who might be Jayson Bend’s match!

Just like any James Bond movie worth its salt (I’m looking at you ‘Quantum of Solace’!) intrigue, danger, sex, and… more sex awaits our hero Jayson Bend who will stop at nothing to protect Queen and Country! Watch it on Dekkoo tonight!

DEKKOO DISPATCH 055 – ‘I’M FINE SEASON 2’

Title – ‘I’m Fine – Season 2

Director – Brandon Kirby

Starring – Perry Powell, Lee Doud, Shaughn Buchholz, Brittney King, Richard Stokes, Ulysses Morazan

Release Date – 2018

______________________

Today is a very exciting day in the Dekkoo-universe! ‘I’m Fine‘ Season 2 launches worldwide right now!!! At Dekkoo we truly believe in the power of gay filmmakers that tell stories about their communities and ‘I’m Fine‘ is the perfect example of that. Brandon Kirby lives in West Hollywood, CA (considered by many to be the mecca of gay life on this planet!) and he plumbs the depths of the craziness and camaraderie that goes on there to create a series that contains plentiful amounts of laughs and feels.

Alright so let’s do a quick recap of Season 1! :Spoilers ahead:
Meet Nate. Nate’s your average ‘figuring out life post-college’ Angeleno living in West Hollywood. He’s trying to get over his breakup with Joey with the help of his fab friends: Jeff, Brian, Andy, and Nicole. Jeff is adorable and has a crush on Nate, Brian and Andy are a couple that have their share of spats and Nicole is the party girl that glues them all together. At the end of the first season Nate has a big fight with Jeff after a drunken hookup that Nate wasn’t into with the result of Jeff being completely pissed at Nate.

We enter Season 2 at the same place we ended Season 1 – with a sunset smothered view on the top of the Hollywood mountains. All seems… strangely peaceful. Nate’s life up until now never seemed this serene. Enter Mick. An adorable button of a twink, he claims to have just moved there and would love make some new gay friends. Nate, although taken aback by such an open and honest proposition (not seen very often in LA) appears taken by Mick and agrees to meet up later on. Nate’s journey in this season seems to me to be a journey of forgiveness. He’s made a lot of mistakes and he knows he won’t find happiness (in the form of Mick perhaps?) until he receives forgiveness from everyone including himself.

But! This season is about a wholeeee lot more than Nate this time around. The bffs from  last season are not about to be merely supporting characters. No! This time we get full blown storylines with each and every one of them. Brian and Andy go to a sex party, Jeff has a hilariously bad blind date, and Nicole apparently was once in a lesbian relationship?!? We also get to meet a lot of new characters: Nate’s sexy roommates, his parents and sister, a sexy latino hunk at a pool party, and many more! There’s also a very long and hilarious post-credits scene hidden after the credits in episode 7 so make sure to stick around for that.

We really hope you binge the heck out of Season 2 and we’d of course love for you to tell all of your friends about it and encourage them to join Dekkoo. We love bringing original gay stories to life, but it takes the support of a community to do it!

DEKKOO DISPATCH 035 – ‘POPPORN’

Title – ‘Popporn’

Director – Charlie David

Starring – Andrew Cheng, Conchita, Dwayne Wilson, Erin Burley

Release Date – 2017

 

______________________

POPPORNNNNNN! Wowza it’s always awesome when something totally catches you off guard that you absolutely cannot stop watching. I had no idea this show existed and right when I get home tonight I’m going to binge as many as I can handle. It’s funny that this show came along right when I just started getting into watching Mystery Science Theater 3000 because it’s superrrr similar.

The basic gist of the series is that a bunch of comedians (including a character from Avenue Q [Lucy the Slut]) riff on some incredibly bad, cheesy, and stupid gay porn films with titles like ‘Stealth Fuckers’, ‘Freaky Friday’, and ‘He Can Do It Better’. It’s half in the style of MST3K and half ‘I Love the 80s/90s/etc’ where there’s animation (yes sadly they do censor the porn, but at least they use emojis!) and use of clever editing to great comedic effect.

The series comes from the mind of Charlie David, the prolific director, producer, and actor. If you want to catch up on his work here on Dekkoo we’ve gottttt: ‘Paternity Leave‘ ‘Mulligans‘ ‘I’m a Porn Star: Gay4Pay‘ ‘I’m a Porn Star‘ ‘More Scenes from a Gay Marriage‘ ‘I’m a Stripper Too!‘ ‘I’m a Stripped: American’s Most Wanted‘ ‘I’m a Stripper‘ ‘I’m a Stripper: Boylesque‘ ‘STUDlebrity‘ ‘I’m a Stripper: Digital Dancer

Whew! I told you he was prolific…

Anyway the show is broken up into 6 episodes that each touch on a specific subject: “Straight2Gay”, “Cockbusters”, “Fantasy”, “Money Talks”, “Daddy Issues”, & finally “Hard Criminals”. The comedians also score each porno at the end of every segment via the ‘Squirt-O-Meter’. Some of my favorite lines in the first episode:

“He looks like Jabba the Hut crossed with Roman Polanski”

Creepy guy with camera – “Why don’t you play with your shirt off?”
Hot dumb ‘straight’ guy playing Frisbee Golf – “I don’t see why not…”
CGWC – “Hey can I touch you?”
HDSGPFS – “I don’t see why not…”

“You call that choking?? Maybe she doesn’t want to have sex with you BECAUSE YOU’RE BAD AT IT!”

If you’ve got got even a slight sense of humor, hunker down with some friends tonight and ‘get off’ to ‘Popporn‘!
