Liz Smith(Video still via ABC News)

Liz Smith, one of the gossip greats — up there with Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons, for sure — has died at 94.

Gay activist Michelangelo, who sparred with Smith over her willingness to help keep famous folks (Malcolm Forbes) closeted and over her being closeted herself until 2000, offered this classy reaction to Smith's death:

BOY CULTURE Turns 12: 50 Links To Celebrate! Comments (0)

ThirstyBoy of my dreams
It's been another year of Boy Culture, and that makes 12.

Img100 copy 2 Img100 copy 3I've spent a decade and change of my life posting think-pieces, don't-think pieces, sexy butts, sexy bulges, infuriated protests, news of the day, news of the gay, surreptitious photos, self-promotion, self-deprecation, humor, pathos, dead celebrities, celebrities you thought were dead and what evidence of what passes for my powers of observation. I've acquired fans and anti-fans and momentarily interested passers-by.

The first blogs I encountered (I was a late bloomer) were Perez Hilton and Pink Is the New Blog ... and I barely understood how to read them. The concept of scrolling down for information, which is now becoming passé, was so new to me, they just looked like a jumble of information.

As I became accustomed to the idea, I noticed Towleroad — a specifically gay blog. Color me inspired, and by the end of 2005, when I was living in misery in a temporary apartment across the street from the dream apartment into which I would soon move (and eventually lose), I spent my free time figuring out Typepad. I was off-the-charts thrilled when I became adept at uploading images and formatting captions. I had previously experimented with Blogger, but now I was in business. Posting some old Blogger pieces and plunging ahead with all my thoughts on Madonna's new album Confessions on a Dance Floor, Boy Culture was born.

Why did I start this blog? (Besides as an excuse to disseminate images of guys in their skivvies.)

Mainly, I thought I could promote the theatrical release of the movie of the same name, which Allan Brocka had co-adapted and directed from my debut novel (new edition coming). I was proud of the movie and wanted to help get the word out, so I posted about each screening in-between quirky, topical entries on music, movies, Madonna and me. Just this past year, I used my blog (and Kickstarter) to help get the word out about the sequel to that movie — to which you can still donate here. I would also eventually lean on Boy Culture to help create awareness of Encyclopedia Madonnica 20, which was a huge hit.

Kim Kardashian Could Get Awfully Awful In This Spotlight Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-10-29 at 4.19.28 PMKim Kardashian annoys a lot of (mostly older) people. The most common complaints are that she doesn't do anything for a living (which sounds like jealousy — who wouldn't do nothing for a living?) and is too narcissistic (which, if it is a disqualifier, just canceled all your friends on Facebook).

I don't have a special fondness for her, but I don't think she's the villain Trump supporters are, for example. She's a reflection of.

And the girl does a mean Madonna, so she can't be all bad ...
