of the gaycentric perspective.

I just don't get it...


I caught Fantasia on the Ellen show last week, performing her new single "Baby Mama." The crowd was completely in awe of Fantasia's performance. I downloaded the song to see what all the fuss was about, but just could not find anything all that interesting about it...I guess I'm just not a baby's mama; I don't get it. Perhaps it's her stage presence...ah well. I'll just fulfill my Idol fix with a listen to Kimberley Locke's album; god I love that girl.

The next best thing...


If you haven't seen the BBC's "the Office," the next best thing is check out the new NBC sitcom The Office." Steve Carrell is wickedly funny. The new show debuted to a strong audience; let's hope it can keep the pace.

From E!:
"NBC's U.S. version of comic Ricky Gervais' cult British television show The Office performing well in its debut Thursday for the network with over 11 million viewers tuning in, beating out Fox' premiere of Life on a Stick and leading the Peacock to ratings victory for the night. "

Don't get any ideas.


I get a kick out of you.

Insert shrivel joke here.


Once a cast member of the Real World / Road Rules / Inferno / Islands or whatever, Jake Bronstein has his own blog.

He shares with his readers a tender moment ice diving in Finland. What follows is a healthy romp in the nude with a few buddies. Some guys have all the luck.

A crisp, fall weekend on Black Lake...

Move over Leann...


okay, I admit. I'm a fan of Carrie Underwood. Competing with competitors not quite in her league on American Idol, each Underwood performance is a knockout. Her performance of Heart's "Alone" on Tuesday night secured her place in my heart. Her tone, understated sex appeal and delivery just resonate with me. If it weren't for my wife, Leann Rimes, I'd be all over Carrie.



Long bored by what's been in the mainstream music marketplace, I've been inspired by The Chemical Brothers' latest track "Galvanize." A mash of hip-hop, dance and breakbeats all bundled into one chaotic little grenade. back with another one of those block rockin' beats!

An early comical genius with coy wit and timing, Paul Lynde firmly held down the Squares of Hollywood. Here are some classic Hollywood Squares Q & A's

Q: Paul, why do Hell's Angels wear leather?
A: Paul Lynde: Because chiffon wrinkles too easily.

summer hype for Fantastic Four


USA Today speaks with Stan Lee, creator of the original comic book strip of the Fantastic Four. I've never been a comic strip follower, so hardly picked up similarities between Lee's creation and Pixar's 2004 hit the Incredibles. Read it here.

fun with [golf] balls...


Who knew golf could be so much fun!



...from Page Six of the NY Post:

JADA Pinkett Smith has ruffled some of the easily ruffled feathers in Harvard's bisexual, gay, lesbian and transgendered community. Pinkett Smith, who was being honored as Artist of the Year by the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations, reportedly spoke about gender roles, but some students felt that the heterosexual wife of superstar Will Smith absurdly limited herself to male-female sexuality. 'Some of the content [of the speech] was extremely heteronormative,' said Jordan Woods, a student who is co- chair of the school's Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender and Supporters Alliance. 'Heteronormative' means 'implying that male-female sexual relations are the norm.' "

Barbie and RuPaul have something in common...


...and it's not Ken. If you've just been introduced to me through this website, you'd think I have a doll fetish. First, I went ca-razy for a Leann Rimes doll (love the voice, not the twang.) Now I'm gearing up for the launch of the RuPaul doll! Just don't ask what I do behind closed doors with my plastic RuPaul and Billy dolls...

I just LOVE the nature of a blog. A gossip piece is no longer left on page six with no comments. The online community now has the ability to post their own speculations. Most recently, we witnessed this with the Marcia Cross coming out rumor. Now the following blind item is sparking speculation quicker than you can say Darth Vader likes it kinky:

What saber-wielding summer movie sexpot was spotted smooching a same-sex companion good-bye on the corner of Kings Rd. and Fountain deep in the heart of West Hollywood the day of the Oscars?

Check out Andy towleroad's website for those dying to guess who the item refers to.

gay bash victim fights back


News from towleroad:

Chapel Hill gay bash victim Thomas Stockwell has broken his silence about the attack he experienced last Friday night in which six men taunted and beat the 21-year-old University of North Carolina student, breaking his nose and leaving him unconscious.

'Out of nowhere I just hear 'Fag' and all sorts of derogatory comments made towards me,' Stockwell said. 'At first I didn't realize they were yelling at me. They just punched me in the face. I did fight back. I'm not the only one hurting in town tonight.'
Hundreds came forward Tuesday night for a rally but so far only one witness to the crime has emerged."

The Bitch does a duet


The Scissor Sisters and Elton John performed "the Bitch is Back" at Johns' post-Oscar bash in LA. Given Elton's track record, isn't it just a matter of time before he lavishes the group with compliments and, two months down the road, trashes them Elton-style?

"ONE Finnish woman probably really hates John Stamos. The actor was asked by Jane magazine, 'What's the worst you ever screwed someone over?' He answered: '[In the mid- '80s] I was in a band. I was playing somewhere in Finland, and there was a girl hanging around who was really drunk and in terested in me. I wasn't into her, but my friend was. So the girl came back to my hotel, and I turned the lights down, and we started making out. I said, 'Hold on a second, I've gotta go brush my teeth.' It was dark, I left the room, and I sent in my friend who looked like me. And she thought she was having sex with me, but she was really having sex with my friend.' "

Page Six dish on Martha


New York Post Online Edition: gossip: "MARTHA Stewart has lost so much weight in jail, she needs a whole new wardrobe. The domestic diva has dropped close to 20 pounds due to workouts, yoga and her inability to eat prison food � so she sent daughter Alexis to get her some clothes to fit her new, svelte figure. Alexis and a Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper were 'ostentatiously' perusing the racks last week for size 12. 'They decided on a $3,980 suede jacket for Martha,' said our spy, 'among other things. I guess it will be Martha's 'coming out' look.' Stewart gets out this weekend. "
