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.

TOTALLY RANDOM LISTS (2011—2013)

I've gotten way into lists. Way. You'll find more of my lists higher up on, uh, this particular list. But the ones that are just completely random go here because I worked my ass off on them, because I love them and because—judging from Quantcast data—you like 'em, too.

Celebs Who Enjoy Gambling in Casinos Comments (0)

Shirtless-Andy-Roddick

Article written by Thomas Shannon.

Casino gaming has become an enjoyable pastime for many different reasons. For people who enjoy a healthy dose of competition, casino gambling can fulfil this need. Also, for some people, casino gambling is simply exciting. Casino gambling provides a chance for players to reap big rewards from various games. Today’s casinos provide a backdrop for an exciting evening out on the town with lots to do. With so much to offer, it’s no wonder that no matter one’s social standing, casino gambling is a popular pastime. Many of the most recognized celebrities have been known to enjoy gambling in casinos.

AP_Shannon_Elizabeth_003American Pie actress Shannon Elizabeth is well known as a poker player, especially in the casinos of Las Vegas. She has even gone so far as to promote the game. She was instrumental in the creation and opening of a brand new poker room at the Caesar’s Palace casino. The design of the room was quite revolutionary and so well done that other casinos have replicated it in their venues. By including this type of poker room, casinos are better able to provide privacy for their customers. Shannon Elizabeth also uses her love of the game of poker to give back to certain charities that are near and dear to her heart.

Alex-Rodriguez-A-RodSports celebrities are also known to playing casino games in land based venues. These celebs hail from a wide range of sports. Tennis star Andy Roddick has been known to spend time gambling in casinos. American baseball player Alex Rodriguez is also a fan of gambling, usually poker. The highly colorful basketball celebrity Dennis Rodman has also been spotted gambling in casinos, as was the case with Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

So, the next time you’re spending an evening out in the casino, keep your eyes peeled, you never know who you may run into. And if you enjoy playing casino games from the comfort of your own home, visit www.luckynuggetcasino.com to play some of the most famous casino games.

Madonna Is The Gold Standard Among Touring Acts Comments (0)

MadgeMadonna can well afford to keep her grills, even in the face of widespread, bipartisan condemnation.

Madonna made more moolah than any other celebrity last year, according to her nemesis, Forbes. (The magazine, which has shunned her in an uncomfortably personal way in the past, takes pains to begin its positive article about her this time with some negatives.)

The reason Madonna's on top? Because when she goes on tour, people react as follows...
