Above: Steve Schalchlin, me, and Jim Brochu, after last night’s rehearsal performance of The Big Voice: God Or Merman, written by and starring Steve and Jim. The show was fantastic, by turns hilarious and moving, recounting the childhoods of Steve and Jim, the strange meeting that brought them together 21 years ago, and the funny and painful times since then. …Read More »
Monthly Archives: November 2006
I have created life. Upon the suggestion of a reader, I tried unbreaking my iPod mini by smashing it to the ground, as that’s how it broke. Sure enough, it has sprung back to (probably temporary) life. Now if I could only get iTunes to recognize me as the administrator. Thanks to David for the tip!Read More »
Big Holiday Meat
Not usually in NYC on this weekend, my plans to see the Macy’s Parade yesterday were ruined by rain and high winds. We intended on crossing the park and watching the parade from its starting point on the Upper West Side, but Eddie and I got as far as my corner before we were turned back by our blown-out umbrellas. …Read More »

If you remember this post, you might be as pleased as I am to see that Valley National responded to my email. Or maybe you won’t be. Maybe I’m the only lunatic that notices these things. Yes, it’s a slow blogging day.Read More »

It looks like the website for San Francisco’s gay newspaper, the Bay Area Reporter, has been hacked, or at least the homepage has. The rest of the site appears to be there. Anybody know the scoop? Equidrag? Some kind of guerilla drag movement? UPDATE: The hack is gone. Anybody know what that was all about? Equidrag? Huh?Read More »

While Shopping This Weekend, Remember….
I would never ordinarily support shopping at Wal-Mart, but those wack-ack-acky fundies will be out in force this weekend, protesting Wal-Mart’s recent membership in the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber Of Commerce. I support sodomy. Do you? (See what the fundies have driven me to? Supporting Wal-Mart! They’s evil, evil I tells ya!) UPDATE: Alert readers have pointed out a …Read More »

Mr. Eagle Does Disco
Brian Kent, a former Mr. NYC Eagle, has released a pretty ripping music video, I’m Not Crazy. Check out the video and his MySpace page. It’s nice to see a music video with some hot man-on-man, girl-on-girl dance action. Well done, Brian!Read More »
This Is My BOOM Stick!
Last night David and I went to see Evil Dead: The Musical. Three words, people: See. This. Show. Hands downs, Evil Dead is the best thing I’ve seen on or off-Broadway since I got to NYC. A wacky combination of Rocky Horror, Grease, and splatter-film, I don’t know when I’ve been so thoroughly delighted to see decapitations and limb amputations …Read More »

Mould & Morel’s monthly party saw its biggest crowd ever, including a couple of hundred GI’s, who had their admissions comped. I took tons of pictures of the crowd, but obviously I …Read More »
Ruth Brown, Queen Mother Of The Blues
Legendary r&b and blues singer Ruth Brown died this weekend at age 78. A Grammy winner, a Tony winner, and a 1993 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Brown is probably best known to gay audiences as Hairspray’s Motormouth Maybelle. “Tidely papa, I am a whopper!” I was and remain a huge fan of Ruth Brown. In 1997, I …Read More »
Isn’t It Queer?
It was definitely a little late in my career, but I finally popped my Sondheim cherry yesterday. Aaron, the Farmboyz and I attended the matinee performance of A Little Night Music, starring our own Little David. David is a long-time member of the St. Bart’s Players, a 79-year old community theatre group that performs at St. Bartholomew’s Church on Park …Read More »
Karl Rove: “That Ho Hottie Totally Cost Us The Election!”
Karl Rove, quoted above, (special JMG translation) continues to deny his responsibility in steering his party right up the pointy bedsheets of racists and dominionists and out of its plurality in Congress. More literally quoted, Darth Voldermort includes Mike Jones among his short list of ills that undid God’s Own Party, telling Time Magazine, “The profile of corruption in the …Read More »
