Probasco1
This fetching creature, Mr. Dwight Probasco, is the principal of Wasilla (Alaska...yep!) High who banned a performance of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" because Freddie Mercury was gay. Imagine if anti-gay conservatives decided to avoid anything associated with anyone gay? I guess that's a clever way to completely end all arts education in the schools, and it would help save money on buying books, too.

Probasco apparently backed down for fear of a scuffle with the ACLU.

Palin Comparison Comments (1)

SafariScreenSnapz001
Independent Republican Lisa Murkowski—who is about to officially kick Joe Miller's ass in Alaska's Senate race, now that she's overtaken him in the vote count—disses arch-enemy Sarah Palin in a new Katie Couric interview. (Points for doing it with Couric, Palin's other arch-enemy.)

"I just do not think she has that, um, uh, those leadership qualities, that intellectual curiosity that allows for building good and great policies."

I'll take my anti-Palin news where I can get it, now that lead-footed Bristol Palin is swatting down "9" scores (!) from overcompensating judges on Dancing with the Stars and Palin herself is being heralded as the Second Coming for inventing a new word to use when Islam-baiting and getting five million people to watch her TLC show. (Obama drew 15 million to 60 Minutes recently, but whatevvver.)

Boy Culture Turns 5: My Favorite Posts Comments (23)

6a00d8341c2ca253ef00e54f16b6088833-800wi

Img_0736As of midnight tonight, it will be exactly five years since my first post. It's hard to imagine it's been that long, and a lot's changed—the tone and subject matter are different, how often I post, my limits (no nudity in a couple of years due to ad constraints). I've devoted a crazy amount of time and money and energy to this blog for a very small financial return (you couldn't guess low enough), but it's always rewarding to have this forum with which to express myself, keep my writing ability fluid, perhaps influence a couple of people here and there, share obsessions with strangers (in both senses of the word) and learn new things.

6wzn3lxTake That's Howard...can you believe this happened onstage at a pop concert?

Here are some of the posts that were most important to Boy Culture's history. For the uninitiated, some of the oldest ones refer to Boy Culture, the movie made of my novel; I started the blog at the time Boy Culture was being filmed as a way to keep people informed of the progress...and it all snowballed from there.

Some of these posts are milestones when it comes to the hits they provided but most are filled with original writing and/or photography and video and are just the posts of which I'm proudest. I hope you'll take some time to click on them and send their links around to others—and some time is what you'll need...

The Mourning After: And Now For Thumping Completely Different Comments (7)

More election thoughts and observations:

It still sucks this morning...I was thinking of calling in Democratic!

Democrats should be proud of what they accomplished in the past two years. Those who are not proud were either defeated or should be. Stuff got done—big stuff. Americans don't hate Democrats. Americans don't love Republicans. They dislike them both equally, or dislike Democrats a tad less. But voters are fucking pissed off at the economy and at waiting around for their lives to improve. And they hate the idea of a deficit to the point that they blindly don't realize the stimulus helped stave off a second Great Depression. That's all hard to address (for both parties, actually), but it's easier to address than, say, being hated.

Obama-spotlightx-large Obama's presser today will be historic. I hope in the good or at least not bad way. If I were him, I would sound a conciliatory note (no baseball bats—see below) yet I would draw some progressive lines in the sand. His only hope for re-election rides on re-engaging the left (the youth vote had better things to do last night and the black vote was somewhat depressed) because going even more centrist (he's already more in the middle than Malcolm) is not going to win him even one right-winger's vote. The Blue Dog Democrats were CRUSHED last night—so he shouldn't become one. His differences with Bill Clinton—the last Democratic prez in this position at this point in a presidency—may be skin-deep, but that's plenty deep enough for the teabaggers. Trust. Of course, this presumes Obama is his party's nominee in '12, a provision that had to be made regarding Reagan and Clinton before him at the same points in their presidencies, but one that nonetheless needs to be made here again.

The Day In Insane Teabagger Videos Comments (2)

SafariScreenSnapz001
DailyKos has the already infamous video of a reporter who was forcibly handcuffed by the private security force hired by Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller of Alaska...it's just nuts. Until you realize Miller thinks highly of the former East Germany's attention to detail when it came to security.

And then there's batshit-crazy, bald-faced liar Sharron Angle, who is running a so-far winning senatorial race versus milquetoast Harry Reid. After running a blatantly race-baiting ad demonizing Latinos, she had the audacity to tell a group of Latino high school students that (1) her ad was also about the Canadian border; (2) she herself has been called the first Asian legislator from Arizona (she's not Asian...at all); and (3) she can't tell the students apart from Asians anyway. 

Nevada...are you sure being rid of Harry Reid is worth six years of this?

After the jump, check out the nasty throw-down aka debate between Democrat Jack Conway and teabagger aka Republican Rand Paul. Lots of Dems are turning on Conway for being too nasty, but I say bring it on (if it works). Paul's never denied the specific charges, BTW. It's absurd that the folks of Kentucky, hurting as much as anyone in this economy, would decide they'd turn to an Objectivist for the milk of human kindness as opposed to a dude who has sworn to oppose any cuts to Social Security...

Electing Rejects Comments (1)

Sarah Palin is set for a big win—the lunatic she endorsed for senator in Alaska, Joe Miller, looks set to unseat establishment fave Lisa Murkowski, and will then go up against Democrat Scott McAdams in November.

Miller is a batshit-crazy teabagger...yay! Here's a fun video of his campaign manager's wife threatening a radio host ("I will bury you alive," etc.) and blowing her top at a group of Republicans.

There's definitely something going on with the Republicans as the teabaggers eat away at them like a cancer. Sure hope that doesn't seep into the overall results in November; dissatisfaction with Democrats leading to losses is one thing, handing over the keys to a bunch of teabaggers is quite another.

Better Off, Ted Comments (2)

Ted-stevens I think Ted Stevens is better off having lost his seat today. He'll be pardoned by Bush, guar-own-teed. And won't face expulsion by his peers.

But anyway: Ted Stevens lost his seat today! Begich won! That's awesome, period, plus it fucks Sarah Palin's diabolical plan to swoop into that seat and build her cred for a 2012 run.

Now she knows how those wolves feel, running unprotected on the open ice as people like her fire at will from helicopters.
