You Can Never Go Back To California: Check Out Steve Grand's Third Single & Video Comments (0)

Steve-Grand-Back-to-CaliforniaI related to this video even more than falling in love with a straight boy.

Steve Grand's third song, the slow-burning grower "Back to California," is a sonic stroll down memory lane, a melancholy meditation on the nature of friendship. The friendship is illustrated in the music video by younger versions of the character Steve's playing as well as of the female playing his friend, and this inclusion of a woman has led some to suggest the song is about bisexuality. One commenter asked Steve, "So are you straight now?" Sigh.

Back-to-CaliforniaThe casting of the young version of Steve's character is painfully perfect.

The video and song are straightforward snapshots of the type of intense—then not-so-very-intense—bond that most of us experienced with someone (for gay boys, it's often with a straight girl) in high school, and how that bond weathers the ensuing 10 or more years. Directed by Jason Knade, the video is another sophisticated, visually stylish picture postcard, one that ends with Steve humbly asking for you to support his Kickstarter campaign.

Did I mention that he raised nearly the entire $81,000 he was seeking for his album in a single day? By the time you read this, it's very likely he will have blown past that goal. Kid is doing something right.

Oh, and Larry King is a fan.

Contract Killer: Lou Pearlman, Thief Of Hearts Comments (0)

Lou-Pearlman

Lou-Pearlman-signatureIf you care at all about '90s pop culture and/or the boy band phenomenon, or even just business, this lengthy profile of disgraced and incarcerated blimp-and-music mogul Lou Pearlman will fascinate.

I will start this off by saying that Lou Pearlman was always very kind to me...and by saying that this doesn't matter when it comes to deciding who he is as a person.

He loved "my" magazine, loved the somewhat misguided coverage I often gave his acts, and not just the marquee ones (BSB and *NSYNC). He was friendly to me always, inviting me to his birthday bashes, prioritizing me for photo shoots and access, even being part of the reason that the magazine I worked for was sold, thus allowing it to live on for another decade before its next incarnation.

In person, he was legit jovial. He always seemed almost spookily light-mooded. "S'great, s'great," he would mutter about everything. He took me (and a dozen other people at a time) out to fancy dinners more than once, dinners I suspected were paid for thanks to ungenerous deals with boy bands, but dinners I never knew were paid for with stolen money.

Paul-Singer-gay-rights

Meet Daniel S. Loeb (L) and Paul E. Singer (R), the hedge fund giants who spoke out in favor of gay rights at Davos this week.

From a New York Times piece on gay rights at the forum, the following interesting commentary from U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) regarding Singer's conservatism vs. his gay-rights stance, which he modified when his adult son came out as gay:

"Also present were two Democratic United States senators, Patrick Leahy of Vermont and Claire McCaskill of Missouri, the latter of whom kidded Mr. Singer about his unusual circumstances as gay rights activist and Republican moneyman.

“'Paul, it’s a devil and angel situation,' Ms. McCaskill said. 'The angel hopes they see the light. The devil hopes they stay there so that we can beat them over and over again.'

"She later added, 'Let me be clear: I want the angel to win.'"
