Badass Of The Day Comments (6)
State Sen. Kelvin Atkinson (D-Las Vegas) used the struggle for marriage equality in Nevada as the occasion on which to come out to his colleagues and the world. This is an example of how coming out is meaningful, and shouldn't be mocked and disrespected by coming-out strategies such as the one employed by jaded Jodie Foster.

Your Service Sucks Comments (1)

A college student (must be a legacy!) is suing a Las Vegas escort service for $1.8 million because the hooker he hired spent only 30 minutes instead of a full hour with him, and also because he felt he was too drunk to make a contract with them in the first place. He already called the police, who—surprise!—threatened to bust him for prostitution...which he didn't know is illegal in Vegas.

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...

The Mourning After: And Now For Thumping Completely Different Comments (7)

More election thoughts and observations:

It still sucks this morning...I was thinking of calling in Democratic!

Democrats should be proud of what they accomplished in the past two years. Those who are not proud were either defeated or should be. Stuff got done—big stuff. Americans don't hate Democrats. Americans don't love Republicans. They dislike them both equally, or dislike Democrats a tad less. But voters are fucking pissed off at the economy and at waiting around for their lives to improve. And they hate the idea of a deficit to the point that they blindly don't realize the stimulus helped stave off a second Great Depression. That's all hard to address (for both parties, actually), but it's easier to address than, say, being hated.

Obama-spotlightx-large Obama's presser today will be historic. I hope in the good or at least not bad way. If I were him, I would sound a conciliatory note (no baseball bats—see below) yet I would draw some progressive lines in the sand. His only hope for re-election rides on re-engaging the left (the youth vote had better things to do last night and the black vote was somewhat depressed) because going even more centrist (he's already more in the middle than Malcolm) is not going to win him even one right-winger's vote. The Blue Dog Democrats were CRUSHED last night—so he shouldn't become one. His differences with Bill Clinton—the last Democratic prez in this position at this point in a presidency—may be skin-deep, but that's plenty deep enough for the teabaggers. Trust. Of course, this presumes Obama is his party's nominee in '12, a provision that had to be made regarding Reagan and Clinton before him at the same points in their presidencies, but one that nonetheless needs to be made here again.

Rad Ad Comments (2)

One of Harry Reid's closing ads in Nevada recruits prominent Nevada figures and businesspeople (including a self-avowed Republican) to all but scream, "This bitch is crazy, y'all, let's not lose our heads!" After the jump...

"Too Dangerous To Have Real Power Over Real People" Comments (0)


Sharron Angle is among the craziest teabaggers to have gotten herself on the ballot during this already crazy cycle, and yet she has a great shot at unseating boring but sane Harry Reid. Great new video against her by the SEIU after the jump...

No Se Puede Comments (3)

A conservative group in Nevada masquerading as some kind of grassroots effort has produced one of the most grotesque ads I've ever seen, and that includes "Daisy," "Call Me, Harold!" and the ones that have merged the faces of various Democratic candidates with that of Osama bin Laden.

Angle_adNot voting for Reid gets Latinos Sharron Angle. An image from her ad above.

Called "Don't Vote," the ad claims that because the Democrats have not produced comprehensive immigration reform, Latinos should not vote. Never mind WHY the Democrats have had their hands tied on this and other progressive issues, just...don't vote.

I would point out to the many gay people rightfully and righteously pissed off at the Democrats that "don't vote" is exactly the message the anti-gay, anti-brown people, anti-working class right-wingers wish they could shove down all our throats. Because if the U.S. had 100% voter turn-out, Republicans would be the marginal party they deserve to be.

Watch the ad after the jump...

The Day In Insane Teabagger Videos Comments (2)

DailyKos has the already infamous video of a reporter who was forcibly handcuffed by the private security force hired by Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller of Alaska...it's just nuts. Until you realize Miller thinks highly of the former East Germany's attention to detail when it came to security.

And then there's batshit-crazy, bald-faced liar Sharron Angle, who is running a so-far winning senatorial race versus milquetoast Harry Reid. After running a blatantly race-baiting ad demonizing Latinos, she had the audacity to tell a group of Latino high school students that (1) her ad was also about the Canadian border; (2) she herself has been called the first Asian legislator from Arizona (she's not Asian...at all); and (3) she can't tell the students apart from Asians anyway. 

Nevada...are you sure being rid of Harry Reid is worth six years of this?

After the jump, check out the nasty throw-down aka debate between Democrat Jack Conway and teabagger aka Republican Rand Paul. Lots of Dems are turning on Conway for being too nasty, but I say bring it on (if it works). Paul's never denied the specific charges, BTW. It's absurd that the folks of Kentucky, hurting as much as anyone in this economy, would decide they'd turn to an Objectivist for the milk of human kindness as opposed to a dude who has sworn to oppose any cuts to Social Security...
