This week I had the pleasure of spotting Mexican actor Diego Luna in our fair store.  Remember him from Y Tu Mama Tambien?  That was such a gorgeous movie. Before I knew it, I was assisting Corrie in ringing him up!  For the curious, he bought mostly DVDs, including Eastern Promises (buffing up for harvey milk gay san francisco moscone the life and times of harvey milkthis weekend's Oscars, no doubt!) and was super sweet.  I pretended I didn't know who he was, and I am positive he realized I was pretending not to know who he was.  Agh.  He winked at Corrie when she handed him his bag and the end of the counter.  What a heartbreaker!

Luna is in town shooting Gus Van Sant's upcoming Harvey Milk biopic, Milk.  In addition to Luna, it's also reporthe life and times of harvey milk dvdted to star the likes of Sean Penn and James Franco.  I've seen them filming up and down Castro St. recently.  The street has been lined with old cars and camera equipment.  That movie will be Oscar bait next year, no doubt.

If you haven't already checked it out, now is the time to see the amazing documentary The Times of Harvey Milk.  It is a phenomenal, moving film.  I'm extremely interested to see just how Van Sant thinks he can top it with a fictionalized scripted film.  I will have to revisit The Times of Harvey Milk myself before Milk is out.

P.S.  James Franco has recently been spotted at SF stalwart Trannyshack!  I'm guessing he musta been researching his role as Harvey Milk's lover.  And no doubt having a blast in the process!
