¡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

‘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...

Vote 2012: Gay Marriage Battleground

North Carolina, Maggie Gallagher smiles at your misery today, and that is unacceptable.
Tales From the Closet!

Tales From the Closet!

Today is a day for schadenfreude!  With Amendment 1 in North Carolina stipping LGBT folk of what pitiful few rights they had left, I think it is appropriate to spend today looking at consequences of similar shit situations. Pull your chair close, children, and listen to a tale of two corrupt men who are currently...

I want to talk about reputation.  The new superhero fuckfest The Avengers is Hulk-smashing its way into your attention span this weekend whether you want it to or not.  While reviews so far have been glowing, reviews of the music score have been less so. Behold, score and cover art font genericness! After listening to this,...
I (PUNCH) Broadway!

I (PUNCH) Broadway!

I saw my very first Broadway musical on Broadway!  Light the lights, because Michael and I went to see the beloved Mary Poppins musical, which has been in operation since 2004!  And like the American army into World War II, we happened upon the Holocaust way too late.  That was a fucking mess of theatre. It’s...
Pay Gay

Pay Gay

I don’t want to start screaming here, but gays, why we gotta pay?  Gays, I don’t know if you realize this, but we, by nature, pay some big ass taxes.  And straights, especially straight rich men, listen here:  I don’t care how much you think you’re paying in taxes, there’s a gay guy out there...
The Blunder Blames

The Blunder Blames

The Hunger Games is a hit, I tell ya!  It’s a big, fat hit!  It’s the first movie in 2012 to cross the $300 million mark, and it did so in the first two weeks!  The response is sensational!  What are you guys gonna do next? Send nearly everyone responsible for the film’s success packing! Yes, Hunger...
How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: "Cold n' Cozy"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: “Cold n’ Cozy”

  You know, Rick Santorum just dropped out of the Presidential race (I’m sorry, suspended his campaign— as if he’s putting it into hibernation, to be thawed out in the year 2045).  I heard the fait accompli breaking news over lunch with boyfriend, and I felt like indulging in some hedonistic opulence.  But we had...

LA Playlist: “Good Morning, Little Schoolgirl”

  For Spring Break, Michael and I drove the 15 hours from New York to Chicago, otherwise known as the “Reverse When Harry Met Sally Drive.”  It is known as this only in my head.  It was a beautiful drive through lots of Pennsylvania nothingness countryside, and in general, made me feel better about Earth’s...
Rick Santorum, Your Brain is Breaking

Rick Santorum, Your Brain is Breaking

This is Mr. Santorum’s new ad that attacks President Obama…   The world sure is a scary place to this man.  I’m worried about his mental well-being.  I fear that Mr. Santorum lacks the cool, calm and collected aura that a leader of such a crumbling society requires.  I worry about his explosive outbursts… Last...
