Morning View – Park Avenue Armory

The Park Avenue Armory (also known as the Seventh Regiment Armory) straddles an entire block on the Upper East Side from Park Avenue to Lexington between 66th and 67th streets. The Gothic Revival building was designed by Charles Clinton and was completed in 1881 with entirely private funding, the only such armory in America. The massive 55,000-square foot Drill Hall ...

Daily Grumble

Are plain white button-down cotton shirts simply not made anymore? Yesterday I hit up every store on the Upper East Side – Bloomingdales, Gap, Banana Republic, and on and on – and found bupkis. Either the shirts were over-fancy with ridiculous buttons or they were of some open weave that would be suitable for tending bar in a poolside tiki ...

Blowoff Photo Recap

Let’s just say that this weekend’s Blowoff was out of control, off the hook, off the chain, or whatever the kids are saying these days. The venue was behind schedule in turning the room over to Mould & Morel, so by midnight the line stretched from Western Beef all the way back to Ninth Avenue. But once everybody was inside, ...

The London jury mulling the inquest into the death of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed has ruled that the accident was an “unlawful killing”, saying that her death was the result of negligent driving by her chauffeur and the pursuing paparazzi vehicles.

Absolut Bigotry

Our nation of wingnuts is severely pantie-twisted over the latest ad from vodka giant Absolut, which is now running in the Mexican press. The ad shows a map of the United States before Mexico “ceded” most of the western half of the country to us at the end of the Mexican-American war in 1848. The ad was created by a ...

HomoQuotable – Andrew Sullivan

“The latest revelations on the torture front show the memo from John Yoo…means that Don Rumsfeld, David Addington and John Yoo should not leave the United States any time soon. They will be, at some point, indicted for war crimes.” – Andrew Sullivan, on yesterday’s Chris Matthews Show. The recently declassified 81-page memo from John Yoo was “used as the ...

Charlton Heston, 83

By now you’ve surely heard that Charleton Heston died this weekend at age 83. Probably like most of you, I was a huge fan of Heston’s acting work (particularly Planet Of The Apes and Omega Man), but loathed some of the man’s politics. Heston marched on DC with MLK in 1963, but was occasionally less charitable towards gays. Here’s a ...

An Oopsie For Out Magazine

Matthew over at Boy Culture found an amusing mistake in the new issue of Out Magazine, in which they list “Pastor” Donnie Davies’ Love God’s Way as “favorite website of the month”. I guess the folks at Out don’t know that Donnie was outed as a hoax here on JMG in January 2007. Matt notes: The most embarrassing thing I’ve ...
