6 Stupid, Probably Unhealthy Ways I'm Surviving Agent Querying

6 Stupid, Probably Unhealthy Ways I’m Surviving Agent Querying

This is not going to be a love letter to myself, to my work, or to my patient almost-husband.

The Life and Death of a Bookstore’s Gay Pride

As I arrived in West Hollywood in 2008, A Different Light was dying. I don’t have any memories of the queer bookseller other than [...]
Which Books Scare Gay Kids?

Which Books Scare Gay Kids?

All gay kids want to be borne from their bullshit. I did, but if you’d ask me then, I’d have told you that I was married to my bullshit – and by the way, what bullshit? Leave me alone.

“For now, let’s call her Cleopatra.” Eccentric musician Frank Ocean has had a tremendous surge in the last year. This is surprising because, as I wrote the other day about David Lynch’s music, Ocean is not exactly the norm. His biggest singles of the moment, “Thinking About You” and “Pyramids” (which he performed brilliantly on Saturday...

“I want to have a good day today.” David Lynch has returned to his unsettling music career in the six years since he’s made a film (2006’s underrated, horrific, Laura Dern-cry-face slog Inland Empire). Last year, he released the album Crazy Clown Time, which you can sample on his site DavidLynch.com, along with spooky mood pieces from Inland,...

4 Non-Money Things (and 1 Money Thing) You Can Do for Marriage Equality!

  The most important thing in this election is THE FOUR. TheFour2012.com is a website that brings you messages of love and support from people of all kinds, from committed gay couples, to grandparents, to religious leaders, to public figures like Jay-Z, Bruce Springsteen, and sports figures like Brendan Ayanbadejo of the Baltimore Ravens and...

“It’s grim. It’s grim.” That was what Aimee Mann said to Salon.com when asked to comment on the 2012 election. Actually, she was talking about her new album, Charmer, out since Tuesday, but all conversation nowadays is drawn inexorably down into the election drain. It’s a very honest, heartfelt, non-crazy read, and I strongly suggest you...

It’s Fall, and here come the biopics! If Summer is about Blowing Shit Up: The TV Show: The Movie: The Comic Book: The Movie Part 3, then Fall is about Famous People Go Through History and Emotions Then Put on Old Age Makeup and Die. Fall 2012 has big shoes to fill because Fall 2011 had a...

LA Playlist: Coppola Soundtracks

“egh, it’s hot outside! It’s HAAAHT!” Three good listens today, all Coppola soundtracks. Been feeling touchy and moody lately. It’s 90 degrees outside on a regular basis, and I just spent three hours getting a replacement air conditioning filter. Now it’s a struggling 83 degrees in the apartment. Be hot and moody with me: 1. “The...

Guns Don’t Kill People, Gays Kill People

In times of trial, I turn, as many do, to my Dad for wisdom. Recently he supplied me with some advice that I think can be applied to the media coverage of the “Batman” movie theater shootings. “Pigs do as pigs do. You can’t stop the pig from rolling in shit, but you can stay...

Why Do Kids Hate Disneyland?

Disneyland! Little did Walt realize 57 years ago, when he opened his park to the public, that it would one day become a place where local college students would have the absolute silliest time of their lives and children would scream as if they were being burnt by candle wax. Pictures and video from the...

  We call my friend Becky the Angel of Death. When celebrity or other person of interest dies, I can always count on her as the bearer of the sad tidings. I don’t know what websites she frequents, or what Google alerts she gets, or what inside man at Cedars Sinai she’s got– someone dies,...

Get pumped for all of the music that will soon be lodging itself on your mental Repeat button. Next month begins the wave of LGBT Pride festivals and parades throughout the country, and we have a lot to celebrate now...

¡Amigos Ultimos!

Last week, I experienced a rush of shameful joy in the prison sentencing of two former New York senators.  These guys are two of the few Democrats who “voted their conscience” to block gay marriage rights in 2009.  In fact, they voted their consciences on this so hard that they had virtually no conscience left...

‘One Million Moms’ Gets a Mother’s Day Gift

What did you get your mom for Mother’s Day? Whatever it is, it don’t hold a candle to the gift ABC gave the anti-gay group “One Million Moms”:  delusions of grandeur. The radical group (and I mean “far right” radical, not “Gushers commercial” radical) has been calling for the destruction of ABC’s mildly rated hot...
