The Bigger Apple

The Mac-heads in my office are positively wetting themselves over the new midtown Apple megastore, which opens on May 19th. The new store is located in the underground concourse beneath the former Trump, now General Motors Building, at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 59th Street, and will be Apple’s first ever store to operate 24/7, answering the city’s dire ...

GB:NYC3

The 3rd Annual Gay Blogger Invasion of New York City is coming up. Spawned from the sick mind of Dallas blogger Mark, author of Zeitzeuge, this entire event is nothing more than bunch of trampy alcoholic gay bloggers staggering from one sleazy bar to another, occasionally falling on each other in hotel rooms. And thank Zod for that. No meetings, ...

Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman With DSL

Don’t Date Him Girl is “the internet’s largest database of lying and cheating men”. As I clicked around the site, reading some of the thousands of testimonials posted by cheated upon women, I wondered how a similar website for gay men might work. Then, on a hunch, I typed “gay” into the Don’t Date Him Girl keyword search. Sure enough, ...

Friday Mailbag, May 5th, 2006

Today’s mailbag theme: Conversions Good Morning Joe! Breaking news flash! As you know, I’m a Republican from a long line of Republicans. It has gotten so bad here in Ohio, that I’m changing my party affiliation to the Democrat Party; I think the Republican Party is too far gone. It gets better: many others in my family are or have ...

Urban Cougars? Mrrow!

For those of you who might be a little embarrassed of the gay community’s employment of zoological nomenclature to describe ourselves (bears, pigs, cubs, etc), you should be aware of the straight usage of the word “cougar” to describe an older woman trying way too hard to look young. Ouch. But just like fat gay guys created the bear scene ...

The Historic Dugout. No, Really.

In the first expansion of the Greenwich Village Historic District in 36 years, yesterday the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission voted unanimously to expand the boundaries of the Historic District another three blocks west and to create the stand-alone Weehawken Street Historic District. This action immediately places another five full blocks (sixty buildings) under landmarked/historic protections, shielding them from ...

In the early days of JMG, I posted a verbatim compilation of messages I’d received on Manhunt.net, the gay sex hook-up site. Here is an updating of that list, including some of the originals.-Hey dud! -U R Hott! Put that in the sexy place! -I am *completely* uninhabited. -Tonight I’m feeling VERY ranchy, how about u? -Are you interested in ...

TV Talk With Joe And Johnny

Joe: So I think I hurt my brain. Johnny: Huh? Joe: I walked through the living room last night and Amazing Surreal Next Runway Idol was on. Or something. Johnny: Hey! I watch those. Joe: My exposure was 15 seconds, tops. Today I can’t name a single state capital. Coincidence? Johnny: what am state? Joe: See. Johnny: me am likey ...

Rhythm Is A Prancer

Last week CNN.com published the results of its readers poll which asked the question, “What is the worst pop song of all time?” This poll occurs from time to time in various publications and I found CNN’s results unsurprising, other than the appearance of the gay camp classic, Charlene’s I’ve Never Been To Me, which came in at #4. But ...

Jose’, Can You Si?

In 2000, I happen to be in Sacramento, the state capital, on the day of California’s sesquicentennial celebration. Amidst all the pomp and circumstance of paying tribute to the state’s 150th birthday, there was a sizable counter-demonstration, staged by immigration reform activists. Passing by that rally, I saw a demonstrator’s sign whose message has lingered on my mind to this ...
