You want to know what love is?

If you read only one personal story on the web today, please make it my pal Jake's about his chosen family. Then take a moment to think about the thousands upon thousands of stories yet untold it represents.

Then get up and go change the world. Thank you.

Words make reality

To whom it may concern: Your friends are not getting "gay married", they're getting married. You are not going to a "gay wedding", you're attending a wedding. Words make reality. Lose the superfluous quotation marks. See also: "lady doctor", "male nurse", etc.

Luke and Noah auf Deutsch

Despite being a big Days of Our Lives fan throughout high school and college, I don't really follow the soaps anymore. I've got several friends who are simply mad for the Luke and Noah storyline on As the World Turns, but the tortoise-like pace with which those boys were permitted to proceed to their first big kiss was enormously frustrating.

For my money, a much better boy-on-boy storyline is the trials of Olli and Christian on the German soaper Verbotene Liebe ("Forbidden Love"). You can catch up on the backstory here; on Youtube, a fan has thoughtfully subtitled the clips in English.

I have a big crush on Jo Weil, who plays frisky, puppy-dog-eyed Oliver Sabel (Olli). Hubba hubba.

Cruising coming to DVD

As noted by Nightcharm, the 1980 William Friedkin travesty Cruising is going to be released on high-definition DVD this September, uncut (ahem) with restored unseen footage. (N.B.—that last link, in addition to featuring a lengthy consideration of the film and its attendant controversies, also features some naughty pictures of nekkid fellas.)
In the dawn-tinted Parthenon of awful gay movies, Cruising stands alone. It doesn’t merely backfire; it backfires brilliantly. ...

Cruising was certainly a shocker in its day. The 1980 thriller is set in the night-world of New York’s orgiastic backrooms, peepshows and open-air fuck-fests that ran 24/7 in the bushes of Central Park. A then hot and nasty Al Pacino goes undercover to attract a serial killer, decoying himself as a hungry bottom in wife-beaters and low-slung jeans. The killer, meanwhile, a lanky, long-torsoed lad whose face is always concealed, is shown tricking and then killing his bound-up S&M partners — a sort of buyer’s remorse we usually associate with the black widow spider — ever whispering in his victim’s ear the moronic catchphrase “You made me do that.”

Gay TV cable channel Logo will host a live presidential debate August 9. Candidates Clinton, Edwards and Obama are on board so far. Did you ever think you'd see such a thing? A gay cable TV channel, I mean?

Chris Jones shares trade secrets of a Chicago theatre critic. The really good ones, like where to park and get grub. However, as one commenter notes, nearly every theatre in Chicago is accessible by CTA trains or buses, so a great tip is to leave the car at home.

There's something that appeals to the obsessive and the transportation geek inside me about mileage running, but I have the impression it's something you don't mention you do at parties.

Made of awesome

I am skeptical of hyperbole, but when Joe posts about something titled "The Greatest Entrance In Drag History", I'm gonna have to look. And so are you, by gum. Don't blink around the 30 second mark.

Tricked out Dreamliner 787VIPs: If I had one, I would totally make it look like the inside of the TARDIS.

I don't know. If I ever saw a penis that looked like that, I'd run in the other direction. Folks, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar and a concrete traffic post is just a concrete traffic post. [via Obscure Store and Reading Room]

Peter Davison joining the cast of West End Spamalot. "On second thought, let us not go to Castrovalva. It is a silly place."

Voice talent includes Alan Cumming, Billy West, Laraine Newman, Margaret Cho, Peter Paige and more; it's created and directed by Q.

Across the Atlantic Sea…

A little help? Where might a homosexual gentleman go in Manchester, England—on a Thursday night, say—to enjoy drinking and dancing with similiarly-inclined fellows? Specific recommendations (in other words, I've already assumed a stumble down Canal Street) are appreciated. Have you any favorite nightclubs? Do let me know. Thanks!

Boy, finally

Boy Culture posterAfter about a million years (well, 12), the movie adaptation of Matthew Rettenmund's witty, sexy novel Boy Culture will open in March. Here's the official website and, naturally, Rettenmund's got a blog.

Derek Magyar, who geeks may remember as Kelby on Star Trek: Enterprise, is a great choice to play X, and Patrick Bauchau also as Gregory. Looking forward to this one.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES: This website for a sperm bank catering to lesbian couples, Man Not Included Dot Com, puts me in mind of a t-shirt my funny friend Jill (the lip-schtick lesbian) used to wear for a fake summer camp for dykes: Camp Menowannawienie.

Speaking of spooge, the theory that semen can be a mood elevator (which I've found, anecdotally at least, to be true) could, if proven, change the anti-depressant medication industry into a service-based one, n'est pas?

DID I SAY THAT? It must be June, since reporters have begun to call the high-profile queers in their Rolodexi and ask "what gay pride month means to you" (or some variant thereof). That's why you'll catch me averring in today's Post-Dispatch that "It is no longer enough just to be gay".

...AND THE RIDE: Woof! Team USA forward Brian McBride has got me thinkin' football been very, very good to me.

MUST SEE J.D.: It appears that NBC has scheduled a little Scrubs mini-marathon Tuesday after next, June 25. If you're not already hip to the funniest sitcom on TV — featuring cutie Zach Braff as a first-year resident and the scrumptious John C. McGinley as his gruff mentor — it'll be a great chance to sample it.

CHALK IT UP: The theme from Simon in the Land of Magic Chalk-Drawings periodically scales the distance of nearly three decades deep in my psyche to get stuck in my head. Here's a small site dedicated to the animated cartoon about a boy whose chalk drawings come to life, which I watched when it aired in the United States as part of Captain Kangaroo. [I nicked the "Simon" link from Boing Boing which you should be reading every single day.]

(WEB)LOG-ROLLING: If you've a mind to discuss matters related to weblogs (tools, practices, history, etc.), there's a new place to do it called Blogroots. It's the companion site to a forthcoming book by Matt Haughey, Meg Hourihan and Paul Bausch.

Also, please go read Merlin Mann's Kung Fu Grippe. It's excellent.

Um, hey there, Sparky…

HOW HOT WAS IT?: McSweeney's serves up a steaming selection of punchlines. It was so hot...

NAUGHTY: An illustration of (one of the many such) double standard the Motion Picture Association (MPAA) has regarding same-sex/opposite-sex onscreen sexual relations and affection.

I LOOKED ALL DAY... for the answer to a relatively simple question I had about AppleScript syntax. No wonder AppleScript is considered one of the Macintosh's best-kept secrets. It's powerful, but damned if you can find the documentation. Dig this funky URL!

POOR LITTLE SINGLE RICH MAN: So there's this guy from Toledo, right? Loaded to the gills. On the search for a wife. Been on the search for a while now. Can't figure out why he's not hooking up with the perfect future missus. To wit:
"Another point I would make: some people think gay rights doesn't hurt anybody, but I would say to be a single male over 40 years old, the gay movement is very hurtful­definitely detrimental to my position, because I am a totally heterosexual individual. In the past, I would have gotten credit for that. Today, people say, 'Why aren't you married?' Or, 'Maybe he's gay.'"

"I will speak personally. I'm a conservative on this matter. I am a tolerant person, but I believe sexuality is a private matter and it should stay private. I do not believe in gay expressions of sexuality in public, period. If someone says, 'Well, that's unfair,' well, I would say, 'O.K., now we can have a 1950's morality as far as heterosexual expression of sexuality.' But I do not believe that gays should be kissing in public. I don't believe in openly homosexual people! It used to be it was a mental illness. Today they think there's some biological­the bottom line is, the answer to that would be they're now proving that schizophrenia has a biological basis. You're born with schizophrenia, too, but no one's saying, 'Well, that's normal.'"
Um, hey there Sparky: maybe your problem isn't that women think you're gay. Maybe it's that they think you're a backward, Victorian jerk. Eh?
