NOM is a Classless Piece of Shit

NOM is a Classless Piece of Shit

I know, the title leaves little to the imagination.
Twitter & The Mundanity of Evil

Twitter & The Mundanity of Evil

  “The Laptop of Cowardice” is what many critics of the Internet tubes call the culture of Facebook, Twitter and blogs that has emerged to handle problems (for topics both personal and the world over) in a way that is far too reactionary, shallow and usually negative.  Well, I’m here to write a blog about...
I'm Worried About Our Opponents

I’m Worried About Our Opponents

The life of a pure fundamentalist Christian must be a life of nonstop gnawing terror.  The sky is constantly falling in their world.  As a gay man who writes about the world he lives in, I don’t think the sky is always falling.  I believe I live in a treehouse in a beautiful jungle, and...
We Need More Shows About Housewives, Damn It!

We Need More Shows About Housewives, Damn It!

All things good and fun have their zenith, celebrate their own ingenuity and then reach too far into the masses and become dumb and dull.  You struggle to remember what was ever new and silly about it in the first place. *I’m talking about Sheryl Crow songs. *I’m talking about Chuck Norris jokes. Chuck Norris...
15 Minutes of Blame

15 Minutes of Blame

  Apparently, Kirk Cameron went on CNN’s Not-Larry-King-Anymore Show with Piers Morgan to announce that he’s gay!  Or that he thinks gay people are unnatural.  Either one, I’m not sure.  I’ve spent the last four days in a Twitter-proof mason jar. Mr. Cameron did indeed go on Piers Morgan and said “Gay people shouldn’t marry...

Apple, Art, Anger, Anonymous

This is a post about the news of the invitation of the announcement of the release of the iPad 3.  News fell yesterday that March 7 would indeed be the day the product would be available to the public.  No!  That would be the day they tell you about what’s in it and when you...
The Unsexy Side of the Marriage Fight

The Unsexy Side of the Marriage Fight

If you’re gay and want to be married, you can get a marriage license today in one of seven places: Iowa, New York, Massachussetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut and Washington, D.C. By this time next year, that number could be increased to as many as thirteen (in decreasing degree of likelihood): Washington, Maryland, Maine, New...
Gay in Washington: Do You Feel Lucky?

Gay in Washington: Do You Feel Lucky?

Call it Prop 8:  now with more confusion! Last month, Washington State approved marriage equality through its senate and assembly and was signed into law by Governor Gregoire.  However, no marriages will be allowed to take place until after the November election, as it awaits a Prop 8-y citizen’s votes.  Yes, I spelled that right...

Chiddy Bang – “Mind Your Manners” This is for us hipster-y white folk who really, really want to get into the hip hop but worry that it never had enough frosting.  Hurry up and listen to the whole Breakfast album before they ruin it and put it behind every shitty 2012 comedy trailer.   Youth Lagoon...
Help! They're Being Oppressed!

Help! They’re Being Oppressed!

If you’re like me, there’s nothing you love more than having a conversation about where church ends and where public policy begins.  Well, that and Caramel Apple Cider.  And dried mangos.  And that moment where spring turns to summer.  And, actually, there’s a whole bushel of bagels I’d love to talk about besides the overthinking...
You Have Been Marked as Spam

You Have Been Marked as Spam

  For the second time in two months, my hard drive has crashed, leaving me to restart my desktop from before.  I backup regularly, so this never really affects me. Except in one area:  Online IDs and Passwords. Launching an Internet browser again after a hard reset is an endless torture for the online person....
Spot the Scandal

Spot the Scandal

  If there’s one thing I hate doing, it’s hunting for a news organization to say one thing (JUST ONE!) about this upcoming 2012 election. I mean, come on, the election is in 8 1/2 months, don’t you think you guys started talking about “who’s it gonna be?”  Just kidding.  I know you know that...
