What the Miley Cyrus Debacle Says About America

I really didn’t want to do a Miley Cyrus post, but I can’t tolerate all of this bullshit coughed up by checked-out parents suddenly concerned about Miley’s back and ready to stitch a scarlet A to someone’s chest.

I read some dreck today that says that Disney is turning the US into a “Nation of Whores. Good grief. “But she’s a role model for little girls,” I’ve heard some people say. Well, if your kid is mindlessly following the cues of a fellow child pretending to be a fictional character designed by a corporation to be a vehicle to propel ad sales, then something is desperately wrong in your home.

Of Friendship, Love, and Steinbeck

This past week, Sam and I resolved a two-month squabble with one of our friends, Paul. It’s funny how stuff like this can spin out of control, and before you know it you’re not arguing about the issue, you’re arguing about the arguing about the issue. So, we all sat down to eat a little crow this past week, with great satisfaction and surprisingly little indigestion. Saturday night we took Mom to a transcendent performance of Steinbeck’s feel-good play depression-era of the Spring, Of Mice and Men, and if that didn’t cinch a weekend of introspection, the post-apocalyptic dream I had that night did. In the dream, Sam and I watched everyone around us perishing from the fallout, and then once we had saved ourselves and Mom, I sickened from tetanus, as I’d stepped on a nail somewhere along the way. I woke up crying, and Sam hadn’t slept well either, likening everyone in his life, and himself, to the characters in the play. Ugh, Steinbeck. Continue reading ‘Of Friendship, Love, and Steinbeck’

How Is A Man’s Thumb Like His Penis?

I have a longstanding hypothesis about the correlation between a man’s thumb (or big toe) and his penis, specifically a similarity in shape:

  • the degree of pointiness or squareness of the tip of the thumb indicating an approximation of the tip of the penis
  • the width of the first knuckle as compared to the width of the space an inch behind the head
  • the litheness or meatiness of the space between the knuckle and the hand (or foot)

Sex Up Your House to Help It Sell

Lots of people in the Los Angeles area are selling their homes and moving: to another part of town, out of the madness, or to Canada, where most of the productions are done anyway.

The first thing to remember is that you’re ‘staging’ the house, in much the same way a set decorator would, and remembering that helps you make good decisions about what to do to present your home in its best light. That said, our friend Robert Carey offered some advice to home owners who are soon to be home sellers: Continue reading ‘Sex Up Your House to Help It Sell’

One Way YouTube Beats XTube: Lots of Guys Kissing

You can find just about anything on XTube: every combination, every kink, every fluid, but what you don’t find a lot of is plain, old kissing. This reminds me of when I was a kid and the days of phone sex lines, before the boom of the Internet, where young, closeted guys like I was, could figure themselves out on the DL, safely. I listened to the phone sex lines first, scared to speak and actually connect with a stranger, and hanging up almost immediately, or getting off before I’d even gotten started or uttered a word.

True Gentlemen, Like No Others

I’m going to embarrass two of our best friends with this post, and I’m not going to apologize for it.

Rob Iles and his partner Michael Paonessa are hands-down, two of the most remarkable gentlemen I’ve had the pleasure of knowing, in my entire life, and I’m so honored to call them best friends.

To know Rob is to love him, and we hit it off right away. He does market research, because he’s smart as a whip, and because he really does know what’s good, what’s cool, what’s going on, and how to make it happen. Continue reading ‘True Gentlemen, Like No Others’
