Ninth Cativersary

Nine years ago this week I brought Shelley (formerly “Little Gray”) home from the East Harlem ASPCA. She was 20 months old, very underweight, timid, and FIV+, the last of which might explain the “owner surrender” notation on her adoption papers. Shelley was so freaked out upon arrival in my apartment that she first tried to escape by climbing up …

Ted Shoebat: JMG Is A “Filthy Sodomite”

Rats. I rather preferred his dad’s term: “sodomite blasphemer.” Anyway, I’m continuing to get pulled into nutjob Christian infighting. Shoebat writes: Peter LaBarbera was blocked from entering Canada, and he goes before the media showing how persecuted he is, but yet he wants to block me — a Christian — from being in a documentary for being more politically incorrect …

Walid Shoebat: Anti-Gay Activists Worship JMG

Last week I reported that Christian activist Ted Shoebat has agreed to debate fellow anti-LGBT activist Michael Brown over whether Jesus would stone homosexuals to death.

Because of …

I Will Hold You Ten Times

As longtime readers know, there are four or five JMG entries that I repost every year. This is one of them. My dear friend Daniel Johnson, who threw the most kickass Groundhog Day birthday parties for himself, would have been 59 years old today. His was a life that burned brightly and I am illuminated still. Daniel Johnson, 1957-1997. I …

Dance Of The Sugar Plum Lesbians

This story makes its twelfth annual appearance on JMG…. Grand Central Terminal functions as the mechanical heart of midtown New York City, pumping out several thousand workers and tourists on one beat, then sucking in several thousand more on the next. The rhythms of the terminal are fascinating. Beat. Four thousand, inbound from New Haven. Beat. Three thousand, outbound to …
