I'm On Current TV's Series About Docs

Tonight at 9, Current TV continues its series 50 Documentaries to See Before You Die, a look at the best documentaries made in the last quarter-century, hosted by filmmaker Morgan Spurlock.

Maybe because I'm in so many docs myself, I was asked to give my opinions in the show about slightly left-of-center classics like Paris Is Burning, the poignant look at the voguing ball scene, which shed a spotlight on flamboyantly oppressed but twirling divas in 1990.

The result, I'm sure, will be a great documentary about great documentaries.

And if you're not sick of me yet ...

... I've also been running on A&E Biography channel, chatting about the illustrious Mayflower Madam and her classy call-girl service on Aftermath, starring William Shatner.

And on TV Guide Network's series about celebrity crimes.

And Biography Channel's shows about hot stars over 40, as well as one dealing with stellar mess-ups.

I just hope one day there will be a documentary, a Biography, or an Aftermath about me.

Or all three! There's certainly enough material.

I remember this time I was all up on La Daily Musto on my metro ride home and when I got home i decided to relax over a random documentary about drag on Netflix and there you were giving your three cents. It was kinda surreal. Like I'd just run into someone at two different hip coffee shops that no one knows about in the same day.

Re: "Paris Is Burning "

I'll never forget the New York magazine cover story..."Drag Queen Has A Mummy In The Closet"...I knew that girl (I hung out in the dressing room) at the Anvil...obviously, no one knew!

I caught one episode recently and just yesterday DVR'd the whole series.  Glad to hear I'll be seeing your head in this series, too.  I'm a doc-freak as well, so this series looks great.  That little channel is trying hard to get noticed....good luck to 'em!

I've watched hundreds of documentaries, I think it's so I can see how different people behave, my family, growing up was somewhat limiting-LOL.   My absolute favorite is Trouble the Water, about a family during Hurricane Katrina that filmed their experience on a video camera and then were followed up by professional filmmakers.  I cried so much at what they went through but also how resilient they are.  I look forward to hearing your favorites--wow!  what a great gig.
