Shits And Giggles

Apparently, the gay nightlife downtown is starting to blossom. Just one cursory look at the weekly club, Shits & Giggles, makes me want to put my little party shoes on. Check out their myspace page and ask yourself why you shouldn't enjoy yourself as we head into the end times.

Karl Rove's Not-so-subtle Racism

Recently, Rove asked if we would want Obama as President when he seems like the kind of guy who would be standing aloof in a country club, with a drink and a cigarette and a stunning date, making snide comments. What was this about? Elitism? Not so much. Talking Points has an interpretation and it should give us all pause.

George Carlin

Carlin was one of the first comics that I really really loved growing up. My pal Doug (son of a comedy writer) and I (stepson of a comedy writer) would play is albums over and over again. He was that good. I'll miss him.

Franklin Avenue found a pre-"7 Words" clip from the Tonight Show in 1966.


I love my little village of Atwater, but I really don't know my neighbors very well. I know the one on my right, but not even really know the older gentleman's name on my left and, except for a few cases up and down the block (and blocks), I know faces but no names at all. I've always wished this to be different, but haven't put in the effort to change it. I'm thinking maybe I should.

Gay Royal Marriage

Or what happens when somebody has too much time on his hands. Well done, Andrew.

Happy Gay Marriage Day Continued

At least in California. And the LA Times -- sadly declining under Tribune -- manages to get it right with an Editorial today. The question, the paper poses, comes down to this: "How can the state's blessing on these acts of love in any way diminish us?"

Back from Costa Rica

Congratulations Obama, nice job (finally) bowing out, Hilary, and fuck you, Tom Delay.
