DEKKOO DISPATCH 060 – ‘JAYSON BEND: QUEEN AND COUNTRY’

Title – ‘Jayson Bend: Queen and Country

Director – Matt Carter

Starring – Davis Brooks, Paul Norton, Tom Read Wilson, Djalenga Scott

Release Date – 2013

______________________

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?).

740full-jayson-bend_-queen-and-country-screenshot

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!

Coffee House Chronicles: The Movie‘ is a comedy that explores the many ways LGBT people connect in the world of the Internet, social media, and of course coffee houses.

This is the art for Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional

While not a gay-centric comedian, Colin Quinn’s ‘Unconstitutional’ is a poignant (and hilarious) stand-up special that deserves a look due the current political environment. Quinn offers an analysis of the creation of the United States Constitution and its effect on the American psyche how the three branches of government are similar to people in a bar, why most U.S. presidents are unattractive, and how the Kardashians reflect on our country. Watch ‘Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional’ on Dekkoo!

This is the artwork for the gay film Palace of Fun

Lily meets an attractive young man named Finn and invites him to her rich family’s summer home. When Lily’s jealous younger brother Jamie finds out that Finn is not who he claims to be, Jamie decides to play a sinister game to get rid of him – and blackmail him into performing some “favors.” A stylish and sexy sun-soaked thriller, ‘Palace of Fun‘ is a throwback to European art-house thrillers of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Think of it like Roman Polanski’s ‘Knife in the Water’, but with more gay kissing.

This is the collection art for the gay short film Grind

Grind‘ is a musical short film that explores a damaged man’s search for a connection in an interconnected world.
