Spring Walkabout

After a nice Bloody Mary brunch cooked up by Farmboy C, the three of us made a to-go Bloody and headed up Broadway for a stroll in this lovely spring weather. Somehow we kept going and going, first running into an anti-foie gras protest at Fairway Market, which was largely ignored by busy Seder shoppers. Then we stopped in at ...

Manhattan Peep Pimpin’

Father Tony took this great pic of Aaron and Jeff at Exit Art last week, perfectly capturing their opinion of performance art, or at least mine (usually). I was in hibernation for some pervy disco event and wasn’t along for the excursion, but I thought I’d post this pic anyway, for pure beefcake value. Jeff is taken, but our boy ...

The Fey Four

The Monica Geller in me compels me to mention the Fey Four, the penultimate round of Malcontent’s March Gayness, in which I’m bracketed against Outsports. The other two survivors are Towleroad and OMG Blog. The original 64 blogs in the playoffs yielded me a couple of new reads, I recommend scanning that list for some fun new stuff. Voting in ...

CBN Targets San Diego Pride

The Christian Broadcast Network has set their sights on San Diego Pride, today publishing a news story accusing that city’s pride committee of targeting young children for recruitment, under the guise of family-friendly events, using “reformed” ex-gay, ex-con, and ex-drug addict James Hartline as their insider source. Little do many realize how aggressively homosexual communities pursue and recruit youth to ...

Jennicam Redux

In a real-life remake of the film Ed-TV, from San Francisco (where else) comes the story of Justin.TV, an internet show in which 24-year old Justin Kan is in the 11th day of wearing a netcam on his head and “lifecasting” to the world, 24 hours a day. Justin’s site is sagging from the hordes of net zombies anxiously chatting ...

Morning View – Nutella

In a nod to foreign tourists, the NYC hot dog carts are selling Nutella, a vile gelatinous hazelnut tub of muck that I’d never heard of until I moved here to work for a British company. My coworkers adore Nutella, but are grossed out by peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Go figure. The product was invented in Italy during WWII ...

Arrests Taking Place At ACT-UP Demo

I just got a message from Rex Wockner saying that arrests are beginning to take place at the ACT-UP Army demonstration on Wall Street. Wockner estimates the crowd at 800, with about 20 arrests so far. More to come as I get reports. UPDATE: Rex Wockner has filed this story on the protest. In San Francisco, Michael Petrelis covered the ...

Go Sanjaya!

As reality and contest shows leave me cold, I haven’t followed American Idol since the Kelly Clarkson season. But I have to comment on the hilarity of reading about Sanjaya Malakar continuing to thwart the judges, thanks in large part to the sarcastic support of Howard Stern and the Vote For The Worst website. American Idol has always seemed to ...

ACT-UP Army Marches Today

Don’t forget that today at noon will be the 20th anniversary ACT-UP march on Wall Street to demand universal health care, single-payer insurance and drug price controls. Marchers will assemble at 11:30am at the Federal Building, at the corner of Broadway & Worth. I have a work thing that will hopefully end in time for me to get down there, ...

Family Affair

LOGO apparently doesn’t see any homophobia in Blades Of Glory, as the cast of the movie will host an upcoming episode of the gay cable channel’s Click List video countdown show. Of course, that doesn’t have anything to do with LOGO and Paramount being sibling Viacom companies. Not at all.

Cut Hets, Not Gays, Says UN

The United Nations’ health agencies recommended today that heterosexual men undergo circumcision, citing “compelling” evidence that the procedure may reduce their odds of contracting HIV by up to 60%, while also noting that the procedure has little benefit for men who have sex with men. UNAIDS and the World Health Organization said that up to 5.7 million new cases could ...

Paper Or Paper?

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted yesterday to ban plastic shopping bags, the first major U.S. city to do so. Mayor Gavin Newsom is expected to approve the legislation, similar to laws already enacted in many foreign cities. The ban is expected to save 450,000 gallons of oil and reduce the annual amount of landfill SF creates by 1400 ...

Who’s Your Favorite Big 8 (Blog)?

Go vote for your favorites in the Big 8 round, this time I’m up against 2007 Bloggies finalist Scott-O-Rama. I think the Final Four round will come at the end of the week. Go Ohio State! I mean, Towleroad!
