Well, that was fun. Thanks to everyone who came out to our showcase this past Sunday at the 2014 Mo-Wave Festival in Seattle! At one point during the show, I looked out and saw Christeene, Justin Bond, Carletta Sue Kay and the boys from Night Cadet in the audience — which was really special.
I adored everyone I got to know this weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again soon! Thank you again to Mo-Wave organizers Jodi Ecklund, Markus Wilson and Seth Garrison for having us perform. Chop Suey recorded the audio and my drummer AC filmed our set, so there will be live clips sometime soon, which I will share. Here are some of the photo highlights to tide you over:Tweet

Miley Cyrus Performs Logan Lynn and Gino Mari’s Arrangement of “We Can’t Stop” on Saturday Night Live
For those of you who may have caught Miley Cyrus performing “We Can’t Stop” tonight on Saturday Night Live and thought “Hey, that sounds awfully familiar” well…you were right! It sounds familiar because it was the arrangement written and released by Gino Mari and yours truly.
The hi-fiving continues…
Click HERE to watch video of the SNL performance (or via the embedded video below). The single, which was released just 3 weeks ago, is available on iTunes (and wherever music is sold) courtesy of RCA Records/Sony Music Entertainment HERE.
Thanks, Miley! So many “Holy Shit!” moments lately! Is this real life???Tweet

Today will forever be known as the day New York Magazine called me “dreamy” on the internet. At least…that’s how I’m going to remember it.
Check out the article on NY Mag’s Vulture blog HERE or by clicking the current issue cover below.
From New York Magazine, Vulture: (9/18/2013)
“We Can’t Stop With These ‘We Can’t Stop’ Covers – And Why Should We? Arguably the track that would have been 2013’s Song of Summer were it not for “Blurred Lines,” Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop” has managed to linger far beyond the whole twerking thing that initially captured popular attention. How do we know this? Aside from being stuck in our heads since its release and being played at every summer wedding we went to, the song has also produced several very good covers. Doo-wop ones, reggae ones, and ones that really get into the heart of the matter. Neon Hitch’s brass-filled reggae cover, Logan Lynn’s dreamy, guitar-heavy version, Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox’s doo-wop version and Bastille’s incredible cover, which mashes up “We Can’t Stop” with Miley’s father Billy Ray’s “Achy Breaky Heart” to create a narrative of a rebellious child and her concerned father.”Tweet

Nothing Is Sacred: An Interview With Margaret Cho
I previously reported that actress & comedian Margaret Cho is bringing her new stand-up show “Mother” to the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland this November, and this week I had the pleasure of interviewing this amazing, hilarious talent for Queer Voices on QBlog!
Margaret and I talked about gay men and their mother figures, what it’s like to have intersecting minority identities these days in Hollywood, how weird “Dancing With The Stars” fame is, and much more.
Read our chat below, then get your tickets to the Portland stop of Margaret Cho’s “Mother” tour HERE.
Logan Lynn: Hi Margaret! Thanks for carving some time out for me today.
Margaret Cho: Thank you!
Logan Lynn: The name of your new tour is “Mother”, so I’m guessing it’s about…politics? Animal rights?
Margaret Cho: (Laughs) Well, it is about a lot of different things. It’s about my own mother a little, but it’s also about being at the age where everybody perceives you to be a mother. In your 30’s and 40’s you’re kind of looked at as a mother figure, and then I have a lot of friends who are younger than me, who consider me kind of the maternal figure in their lives. Certainly as a hag, you know, like, a fag hag, you get to this stage where you become like a mother, where they just start calling you mother. That’s a great place to get to, that grand dame queen mother identity; so that’s part of what the show is, too.
Logan Lynn: Do you feel like that’s why gay men have historically been so magnetized your way? Do you fill some sort of mother-shaped void for us?
Margaret Cho: I think that’s true. I think it’s why sometimes gay culture is Read the rest of this entry »Tweet
