Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

Ladies And Gentlemen, The LATE Mariah Carey! Comments (0)

MARIAH-CAREY

The biggest pair of surprises at last night's "OUT 100" party, honoring Out Magazine's 100 most inspirational LGBT figures, was the appearance of Mariah Carey, who came out (after about a 10-minute pause!) to accept an award on behalf of her buddy/director Lee Daniels.

Jonathan Groff and the cast of the can't-wait-to-see-it HBO series Looking announced her, then had to entertain the crowd by reading her Wikipedia page (!) for several minutes, including full birthdate and Tommy Mottola namecheck. Ouch!

Mariah has taken Madonna's cue, wearing gloves (though hers look like Rubbermaid in my screengrab, I am gonna guess they were satin). She had a great line:

"I'm a straight girl, so I don't really know why they asked me to be here...but my boobs have been out for years!"

It was a brief speech, punctuated by a nobody-listened-to-it heartfelt video speech by Daniels. After she was done, she asked for help getting off the little platform because her arm still had some damage.

The crowd at her up, and Groff referred to her as "the best-selling female artist of all time," which is of course what she demands to be called wherever she goes and which is the nugget around which every one of her press releases is built.

As much of a non-fan as I am, it was exciting to see her in person for the first time, and I give her and Out a lot of credit for such a wonderful surprise.

Full video after the jump...

Last Heard: How Long It's Been Since These Icons Went Top 40 Comments (9)

Hit-artists

What follows is a list of 125 household-name artists grouped by the last years in which they appeeared on a single that hit the Top 40 of Billboard's "Hot 100" chart in America. As a recovering teen chart nut, I find this stuff fascinating. It speaks to their relevance as artists in some cases, but speaks to the relevance of having a "hit single" in cases where the artists are clearly still quite successful by other measures.

Most of all, it's just wow-inducing to see how long it's been for some of these artists, who have sold millions and millions of records in their storied careers. It's also interesting seeing the groups of artists who enjoyed their last Top 40 success together...Gloria Gaynor and Patti Smith, for example.

(Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong on any; it's hard juggling artists' singles, featured appearances, etc.)

Enjoy...

Of Thee I Oversing Comments (24)

Madonna-Mariah"You ain't got a prayer, honey."

Last night on American Idol, Mariah dismissed "Like a Prayer" as being "not a big singing song." Look, plenty of Madonna's songs, including indelible pop classics like "Into the Groove" or "Borderline," could fairly and objectively be classified outside the "big singing song" category. Not so with "Like a Prayer," which even without its big singing choral aspect has plenty of opportunity within its verses for belting (and which features one of Madonna's best vocal performances ever).

For Mariah Carey to sing a song, she almost always insists on oversinging it. Give her "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" and "fellow" would have 18.5 syllables.
