    Love is that burning sensation when you pee.

    Long, but well worth it to watch it through without skipping. At 4:08? Chills. Gorgeous.

    We need more of this. I love my down and gritty rock music as much as anyone, but damn, let us not shove Beauty and Transcendance from the world. Please?

    I wish I had 1/10th of ability to express myself as so many of you.
    I am a gay man who knows what it is like to be 16 and a dishwasher who comes home to a note from bios mother to get her smokes walked to a convenience store and a bunch of guys chased me . They caught me and kicked the shot out of me then posses all over me. I went numb walked into the store got the Viirginia Slim Ultra light one hundreds
    otd the girls that were with the guys laughed at me. I walked home shaking and covered In urine. Laid the smokes on the table walked outside grabbed a cushion from a seat kicked in a basement window and attempted to sleep. I relay this only because I am growing tired of the elites trying to define society when they HAVEN’t been there. I wish I could convey even a tiny bit of what it was like to be at Purdue laying in bed listening to tapes telling me I was a heterosexual. Tragic then. But I find the present climate so much scarier. DAMN I WISH I HAD WMCB WAY WITH WORDS

      I sympathize with you, Timothy, even if I can’t truly relate. I keep getting this horrible feeling that trying to tie all gay people so tightly to the progressive agenda is going to turn out badly for gays themselves.

      It’s frankly unsafe to invest your entire identity as a human being into any political movement or entity. Things happen. The world changes, as do political winds, sometimes on a dime. I feel the same way about women.

      Call me crazy. It’s an intuitive thing. I’m deeply uneasy of late with the political spirit of the age. It’s like watching a spring get wound tighter and tighter. I don’t want to be a part of that spring at this point, right or left. I want to back off of all of it, and wait. I engage people on the fringes at times, trying to figure out where the fuck the fault lines are that have my hackles raised so. I can’t shake the feeling that one way or another, my grandkids are going to live in an ENTIRELY different world than I do. Sorry if that sounds way too pessimistic – I don’t exactly mean it that way. Hard to explain.

        It’s what I cannot express that is driving me bonkers. I have a convoluted history But I always believed in my family my community and my God. I wouldn’t’t have wanted to survive without those things. All of my college friends talk to me about what they bought for their kids. How they are sending them to kindergarten classes that exceed my college expense. When they do talk about their kids it’s like a badge. Now granted my BRat is straight A’s and blah blah blah– but their kids are flat out rude. We had a get together a few months ago and my pup actual said to me afterwards it was nice to see the Capital but your friends kid’s were very rude to everyone. Think I slapped in the head for that.

    I am such an idiot what I wanted to express is that the backlash of the daily gay news story may make Andrew Sullivan feel good but he lives in a bubble. I live in the real world. I am old enough not to give a rat’s ass what anyone thinks of me but I hear it all the time. People Re sick and tired of every time they turn on the TV there is some gay lesson. Shut up is what I hear as well as praise for Ellen and Modern Family.

    My spoiled cat has decided she will no longer eat regular dry food, only the expensive canned food and fancy dry “treats”. She also has developed quite a bit of junk in her trunk.

    I am thinking of changing her name to “Michelle”.

    So freaking sad. I loved Daddy Walton.

    • mothy67 says:

      My very first job in NYC was at a place called the Rose Cafe right off Washington Square Park and my manager was Ralph Waite. HIs nephew. He popped by on occasion. But my favourite Ralph Waite story was when I was working at Joe Allen and he came in to eat at the bar after the shows had started so the place was empty. Got his check and then asked for everyone else’s check in the place. He was working at Joe Allen when he got the call that he got the walton’ s gig and he walked out in the middle of a pre theatre seating. Don’t know if that is true but JOe just laughed and said double the tip.

    Best cover My Funny Valentine? For a kid. Chet Baker? Too much? Michelle Pfeiffer to adult? BOUGHT this smart tv and really can’t see any difference but I Can Program a YouTube video to play upon being turned on.

  15. mothy67 says:

    Well I decided to have my baby girl have to cut through three doorways of paper towels from floor to ceiling covered with how much she gets on my nerves only to arrive at the TV– best songs I can think of are A love that will never grow old or These are the days?

    Love Cher! “It’s in his kiss”
