Busy day here at the ranch! I thought I’d throw you few curves to help keep your day interesting:
- Roxie’s World brings us the heartwarming story of a non-gay pro-gay little boy in Arkansas named Will Phillips who refused to say the Pledge of Allegiance at school until there truly is “liberty and justice for all” in these United States. (Some of you may also want to weigh in on the pressing question raised by the insult this little boy hears now at school: what is the proper spelling of “gaywad?” Is it “gaywad,” “gay wad,” or “gay-wad?”)
- There’s a fun new gay blog I’ve found called Down and Out in Denver. Actually, the blog proprietors Alastair and Blake hate Denver, which is why they started a blog to complain about the lack of urbane gay funky goodness there. So, all you Colorado straightwads and breeders, with your matching team PolarFleece jackets driving your Subaru Outback wagons, heading on over to the REI to get the skis rented for the kids and debating whether or not you’ll head up to Copper or A-Basin the day after Thanksgiving –well, this blog is way too cool for you. Don’t even bother to click. Don’t even think about clicking. (Unless you’re already familiar with Tabitha and Undine Spragg–in which case, are you quite sure you’re a heterosexualist?)
- Finally, a little time capsule for all of you middle-aged gaywads and straightwads: the incomparable queer punks, the Buzzcocks, asking “What Do I Get?” Yes–this is the band that originally recorded “Ever Fallen In Love with Somone (you shouldn’t have fallen in love with)?”, which was gratuitously updated just a few years later, 80s-style, by the Fine Young Cannibals.
Have a great Wednesday, all you gay-shooters and straight-shooters out there! Hey–can some of you gaywad fashionistas get a fashion consult for that cowboy in the upper right who’s wearing a green shirt with a matching green cowboy hat? What say you: sorta gay, super-gay, or just a dancer leftover from Oklahoma?
