you got the swagger of a champion

I have to admit to all of you my most shameful moment of the past 3 weeks.

Britney Spears “Womanizer” is my absolute favorite song of the moment.

What the heck is wrong with me???? Me? Me of indie rock and 80’s Brit bands? How can this be? I have no freaking idea.

Sadly, this song is followed up by Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.”

I’m somehow regressing into a teenager.


i think this means I have good taste

Out magazine has just listed it’s “100 Greatest Gayest Albums of all Time.”   This list is fairly awesome and inclusive and I know all but 3 of the Albums/Performers.

Not only do The Smiths show up TWICE in the top ten,  (# 2 and 6) they show up in total 5 times on the list. Which is the same amount of times that Madonna shows up on the list. 5 is the max number entries on the list for any artist.

I think this makes me super uber gay. I’m not so sure that’s a shock to anyone.

The new 90210 is how you say….the shit?!

I know, I just lost every cool point I may have ever earned but really, it’s awesome.

S’s recovery is going so well that last night she felt good enough to go out to a movie. This is a GREAT thing because A and I have wanted to see “Hancock” since we first heard about it a few months back. In general I LOVE Will Smith movies, especially the big July 4 blockbuster types.

Sadly, despite a pretty good and tight quirky superhero plot, Hancock was one of the most homophobic mainstream movies I’ve seen in YEARS. It was made clear early and often in the movie – from the first 10 minutes to the last scene – that being weak was equated with being queer which was equated with being punk. And the word “homo” was used in a not very nice way about 1/2 a dozen times.

Honestly, I kind of thought that Hollywood didn’t need to go…there…anymore to make a point, and this movie was clearly strong enough to have gotten by without it. It wasn’t necessary at all and….I don’t know. I mean, there are some questionable moments in movies like “Blades of Glory,” or “The 40 year old Virgin” but to me it seemed like those jokes were so gay that while the mainstream audience might laugh for one reason, gay people might laugh for another and recognize that it takes a someone really in touch with the gay community to write a joke that funny. Hancock was just mean.

I’m not going to say you know, don’t go to this movie, like I said, it wasn’t bad – just a little advance warning so you’re not shocked or saddened or surprised during the movie, like we were.

**EDIT** So GLAAD is up on the “homo” part, what they ignore is the large if your a weakling your a sissy and if you’re a sissy your queer and queer is punk. That was my biggest issue.


i promise

Back on track with your questions tomorrow. As for today? Well…marches and parades and pier dances have sapped my energy and my sleep and I just need a recovery day from all of that. Ok, well, that and I kind of have a hangover. I know – terribly unlike me.

Dear Subaru,

I know that you expected to sell 24,000 Baja’s a year when you started production in 2003. I know that over the 4 year run of the car you only sold 33,000 total. This must have been disappointing for you, and I understand that. However, I really really love mine. A lot. I mean, yes, this IS the second one I’ve owned, but this one is starting to reach its full potential with the bike rack addition.

A nice ride over the bay, being met by my wife for breakfast, and then a breezy drive back home? Awesome Sunday morning on the first warm day of the season.  For some of us, this is the perfect perfect car. Thanks.

Oh yeah. I know that in part my livelihood is provided by how well your company does, so thank you for making some really   good commercials for like, perhaps the first time ever.
