Too Shy Comments (9)

A Q&A with Madonna in People (May 14, 2012) reveals some things you may not have known about her, such as her assertion that she is "shy." WTF? Or that her favorite food is French fries. Is this 1985? I want to see a picture of Madonna '12 eating fries!

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


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...

Open Your Heart Comments (1)

2010-06-25-vascobymaryhurlbutCathleen Falsani is not a columnist I usually read—she's HuffingtonPost's "God Girl" religion writer. But her open letter to Madonna, praising her for her precedent-setting adoptions from Malawi that opened the door for Falsani's adoption of a son from that country, is deeply moving and open-hearted.

It reads, in part:

"Legal precedent! Case law! A miracle! A door swung open and a way had been made for us to become a legal family. It was a mitzvah created by many human (and divine) hands, including yours."

Thanks to his adoption, Falsani's son, Vasco (pictured), was able to receive life-saving open-heart surgery.

Hot Child In The City Comments (0)
I'm not on board with pitting children against children in "adorable fashion face-offs," but I suppose as a Madonna fan it's some comfort that her daughter Mercy has at least won her first battle, as seen in In Touch (June 14, 2010).

Madonna, Jesus & family (does Lourdes have a cute boyfriend now? or is this Madonna's new, very young assistant?) attend Carnival in Rio.

Madonna Buttered Up, Buttered Down Comments (3)

00027188Just now realized their hairdos kinda matched.

First up, the Daily Mirror publishes a specious story about Madonna and Janet meeting at the MTV Video Music Awards and then again bonding over dinner at Butter here in NYC. I would find this fascinating but I can't really believe it...wouldn't MTV have reported on these two female icons meeting backstage? Are there really no paparazzi shots or fan reports of them eating at Butter—a high-profile place—during Fashion/VMAs Week?

The first pictures of Madonna with her new daughter Mercy James are in and look so sweet. If only they weren't snapped at Kabbalah, sighs. From and more here.
