Morning View – Hillside Campground

Isn’t it funny that we have wi-fi out here in the boonies? It poured all the way here (screw you Weather.com) and it poured most of last night. But things let up around 10PM and we were treated to spectacular skies as we gathered around the rec hall bonfire. I had forgotten about stars. There’s a lot of ’em. It’s …

Chillaxin’

I’m off for three days of gay gay gay camping in the Poconos at Hillside Campground with Aaron, Chris, and the Thruple. It happens to be their “Hog Ranch” weekend, a prospect which would have thrilled me ten years ago, but today makes me rather apprehensive. Strange.

Rethinking Merv Griffin

Spurred by Michelangelo Signorile’s withering appraisal of Merv Griffin’s legacy as a closeted gay man, the Hollywood Reporter yesterday published a column posthumously outing Griffin, something the mainstream media had failed to do definitively, despite some making references to Griffin’s sexual harassment and gay palimony lawsuits.

Morning View – 777 Third Avenue

The only reason I include such a blah-looking building as 777 Third in the Morning View series is because it is the home of Grey Group, the massive advertising agency conglomerate. Mediacom Worldwide, one of Grey’s buying agencies, is also at 777 Third.

Open Thread Thursday

A couple of weeks ago I read a funny new novel, Paul Schmidtberger’s Design Flaws Of The Human Condition, in which, Ken, the gay lead character, and his partner of several years receive separate invitations for a friend’s wedding. Incensed, Ken devised this response: He zipped out the door and bought a beautiful long oval copper-plated fish poaching dish from …

HomoQuotable – Steve Schalchlin

“Gay people who are raised in a religious environment, a conservative religious environment are basically told, ‘You’re not good enough / you don’t belong here / you need to change / you need to be something else.’ And so, in a lot of our lives, we end up leaving the church and hating God or hating Religion or hating the …
