Hotel, Motel, Holiday Win

With an appletini in one hand and a Marlboro 100 in the other, Lady Random spun her glittery wheel and landed on Fog City Mike, this week’s Swag Tuesday winner. Mike, a music writer who has just written the liner notes for the upcoming Sugarhill Gang reissues, will be getting a copy of Mike Jones’ I Had To Say Something, ...

Morning View – BridgeMarket

My favorite supermarket is the BridgeMarket Food Emporium, cleverly wedged under the supports of the Queensboro Bridge with a fabulous tile vaulted ceiling. Just outside is Terrence Conran’s Shoppe of Expensive Whimsy, where you can pick up such necessities as a $2000 molded plastic sofa.

Gays Gone Wild!

Two weeks from today I’ll be performing at Gays Gone Wild, the annual gay pride edition of WYSIWYG, alongside JMG blogroll pals Joel Derfner and Rod Townsend . This will be the final Wizzy, after four years the promoters are burned out and decided to pull the plug on a high note, as the pride show is always a smash. ...

Swag Tuesday

Courtesy of Seven Stories Press, today’s Swag Tuesday prize is a hardback copy of Mike Jones’ brand new autobiography, The Art Of Ted Haggard’s Fall: I Had To Say Something (cowriter: Sam Gallegos). The book ships this week. I can’t imagine that any regular reader of this or most any other gay blog would not know who Mike Jones is, ...

HomoQuotable – Peter Tatchell

“I’m not deterred one iota from coming back to protest in Moscow.” – British gay rights activist Peter Tatchell, who was beaten by suspected neo-nazi protesters at this weekend’s Moscow gay pride event. Unbelievably, after he was beaten, Tatchell and other marchers, including Moscow Pride organizer Nikolai Aleksee were arrested by Moscow police. Tatchell delivered the keynote address to Moscow ...

Charles Nelson Reilly, 76

Charles Nelson Reilly, the campiest creature ever to challenge Paul Lynde’s chiffon sash as TV’s first mean queen, died yesterday in Los Angeles at 76. Most probably know Reilly from his trademark evil snigger, which he delivered for many years on game shows such as Hollywood Squares and Match Game. However, Reilly’s fame first came many years earlier, in 1961, ...

Mr. Fleet Week

Mr. Fleet Week is climaxing. Waist-deep in the Hudson River he stands, back arched, toes curling, straining…UGH…to blow his patriotic load of bipedal cannon fodder one last time over America’s well-fingered g-spot, Midtown Manhattan. The spot, after six nights of polite (compared to the locals) but woefully unskilled (ditto) attention, is currently wavering perilously between grateful, exhausted satiety and “not ...

On Bear Hill

Father Tony took this shot at yesterday’s picnic on Bear Hill in Central Park. I’ll post some pics of my own after the weekend is over. In the meantime, Father Tony has lots more over at his place. This photo is now embiggen-friendly.

“Chelsea, You Rule”

You gotta love the copywriter that came up with this Virgin Mobile ad that Superdaddy and I found on a phone booth on 8th Avenue, which playfully compares sexual versatility to Virgin’s phone plan. Super and I walked all the way from the West Village to the GB:NYC4 drink-up at Therapy, where a massive crowd of sodden bloggers awaited. Along ...
