Sam Page’s Guide to Los Angeles, on Gay.com

Gay.com writer, Josh Rotter, recently interviewed Sam for his guide to Los Angeles. It’s interesting, even to me, to see what spots he likes best and why. I have to give him his due: for a guy who, three years ago, didn’t know there was life east of La Brea, he has become a pretty big advocate of the east side.

Below is a taste, and here‘s the rest (which also includes some rare photos you might not have seen).

What are some great restaurants for a romantic gay date in Los Angeles? What about these restaurants appeals to you? Continue reading ‘Sam Page’s Guide to Los Angeles, on Gay.com’

Kathy Griffin & The Pages, “Busted in Bora Bora”

Sam and I will (possibly) be on Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D-List, this Thursday, July 24, on Bravo. The episode is called “Busted in Bora Bora.” I say (possibly) because we don’t know how the show was edited and if we’re in or out until the party on Thursday evening, where we’ll see it simulcast with the Eastern Standard Time broadcast (three hours earlier than the rest of L.A.)

As you will recall, we went to Bora Bora in the Spring, so Sam could interview Kathy for Passport Magazine. We couldn’t show you all of the pictures, for a couple of reasons. Continue reading ‘Kathy Griffin & The Pages, “Busted in Bora Bora”’

Mommie Dearest vs. The Dark Knight

The Dark Knight is sold out, solid, all over town, so Sam and I stayed in this weekend and tried to approximate the experience as best we could, by watching Mommie Dearest.

The first time I saw Mommie Dearest was within a year of the premiere, but on HBO, at home. I was 12 or 13. Soon thereafter, I got into a fight with Mom and called her “Mommy Dearest.” It earned me the requisite slap across the face. God, how dramatic. In fact, we both realized we’d been caught up in a wave of self-concocted drama and busted out laughing. How Camp. (That link, btw, is the best intellectual discussion of Camp, ever.)

25 Live: George Michael in Anaheim

It’s always a little scary to see your icons live, lest they disappoint you. Last weekend, at Honda Center, formerly Arrowhead Pond, in Anaheim George Michael reminded us why he is an icon, and nobody was disappointed.

He’s come a long way since I saw him last, in WHAM, circa 1984 in the Miami Baseball Stadium. It was a wake me up before you gogo thing, a repressed homosexual lust thing, and a fleeting 80’s thing. They were fun, but who knew half of WHAM would become the fully-realized, world-class entertainer who performed last night? At times, it looks as if even George never expected it himself.

Photo Shoot with Tom Bianchi

Tom Bianchi will try to tell you that he’s not a great photographer. “What I don’t know about photography would fill many, many volumes,” he said to Sam and me this past weekend, with a humble grin. I’m not certain I agree, but nonetheless, he is a great artist who, for decades, has worked with subjects to create and capture moments that translate into beautiful, iconic images.

“I always take a lot of pictures and then God gives me some great ones,” he said, skimming through the thousands of shots he’d taken of Sam and me over the previous two and a half hours. He even let me shoot a few of he and his boyfriend, Aaron, as we took a break – according to Tom, something he’s never done before. It was an honor.

Hiker Found, Lesbians Resting, Homeward Bound

The third act excitement came to a resolution today when we learned, rather un-dramatically, that the Canadian hiker, Collin Foster, has been found alive.

It’s been a great one-day extension, but truth be told, if we were here much longer, I’d be looking for a job to occupy me. One thing I’ve learned is that this body doesn’t like to stay at rest.

We spent the day snorkeling under the reception area where all of the incoming guests feed bread to the fish, hence, snorkeling there is like snorkeling in a tank at Sea World.

We’re glad to be headed home. Continue reading ‘Hiker Found, Lesbians Resting, Homeward Bound’

A Fuel Strike, a Missing Hiker, and Agitated Lesbians in Bora Bora

We’re still having a blast, but there is a fuel providers’ strike. There is a fuel tanker moored off the coast, that cannot move because it would be breaking the strike line. AND, a Canadian in our group left his wife and kids Saturday morning to go hiking up into the sacred mountain, where he wasn’t meant to go, and has been missing ever since. Continue reading ‘A Fuel Strike, a Missing Hiker, and Agitated Lesbians in Bora Bora’
