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. After reading Signorile’s post and stewing over it a couple a days, I appeared …

Storage Firm Shakes Up Pro-Lifers

Over the last year, I’ve written a couple of times about Manhattan Mini-Storage’s billboard campaigns, which comment amusingly on a broad range of social and pop culture issues, ranging from the government’s wiretapping to Paris Hilton and the Queer Eye guys. Their latest series, which started a few months ago, is beginning to cause a lot of upset among pro-lifers, …

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.

Daily Show On Visible Vote

I’m kinda heavy on the videos today, but I cannot resist sharing last night’s Daily Show take on last week’s Visible Vote ’08 forum. Remember last year when I asked who was gay America’s best straight ally? Yup, still Jon Stewart.

Karma Kameelians

Local Buddhists went to Chinatown and purchased $7000 worth of live eels, turtles, and frogs and then set them free in the Passaic River – in the hopes of improving their karma. The New Jersey EPA will be rebalancing their karmic windfall with a $1000 fine for releasing non-native species into an open environment. Existence is suffering. For idiots, especially …

Clinton: You Are Invisible To The President

Hillary Clinton launched her first television commercial this week, in which she declares that soldiers, single moms, and the uninsured are “invisible” to the president. The White House immediately issued a strong criticism, calling Clinton’s ad “absurd”, “outrageous” and “unconscionable.” Clinton turned around and put their complaints right up on her campaign site. Good for her.
