An ailing Penny Marshall (she is battling cancer and currently rushing to complete her memoirs) reminisces about A League of Their Own with Rosie O'Donnell. Great little tidbits in there.

I've always loved the Lane Twins—Gary and Larry—and now they have a Dolly Parton-themed documentary coming out called Hollywood to Dollywood that I'll be seeing on the 17th in NYC. As part of their promotions, they landed a spot of The Rosie Show on OWN. Non-Dolly clip of them after the jump...
Rosie O'Donnell has a new show and a new love she's talked about marrying (Michelle Rounds), but National Enquirer (October 31, 2011) claims the GF's father isn't thrilled. For one thing, Rounds allegedly never came out to her family prior to Rosie talking about their relationship in public, and Rosie's claim to have met the parents was only half-true—the father's never met her. Ouch!
Still, Team Rosie—the dad sounds like he's working through some homophobia more than anything else.
As 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.
Take 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...
FROM BOY TO MAN: BC B.C. (2007): The entire history of my novella, novel and movie Boy Culture; might be my ultimate post.
From '07, one of my faves. Old iPhones were better because they were worse.
"Your pictures suck" (2008): An art critic attacks me, but not without sustaining some hits in return.
BOY ON FILM (2006): An account of the NYC launch party for Boy Culture as it played the TriBeCa Film Fest.
FRIENDS AND "FAMILY" (2006): The movie version of Boy Culture hits Chicago.
RAPT PUPIL (2006): The final night of Outfest with Boy Culture; I was fat but on the other hand got to meet Bryan Singer.
DRAWN TOGETHER (2008): How my desire to draw related to my secret desire. One of my absolute favorite posts.
BURNING MAN (2007): Tribute to my late high school friend and first romance.
AN OBSESSION IS BORN (2009): One of my best posts about my obsession with...obsession.
ILLINOIS DEATH TRIP (2007): Ruminations on death while revisiting a past home, and the past.
PASSING BY (2008): Mourning the loss of a person I only met once.
HAVEN'T WE MET? (2010): Celebrating my time with someone I've only met once—Madonna.
Us (August 23, 2010) would seem to be dousing Rosie O'Donnell's proposed new show for Oprah Winfrey's network with cold water—their poll says 83% of readers won't watch. (Not surprising considering how lefty she is and since 68% of the country is blatantly bigoted.) Bu then again, if 17% of America watches, she'll be the biggest thing since Ed Sullivan!
I'm not sure what it is that attracts gay men to jobs requiring the coddling of divas, but we seem to do it often and well. I have more of an idea of why gay men love gossip, which we also do often and well. We're also probably inordinately psyched by our own life stories, but that's just because we're so fassscinating.
I was sent this book a few months ago and kept meaning to post something about it. Better late than you'll never eat lunch in this town again, right?
Rosie O'Donnell has announced she'll be back in the public eye...or at least its ear...with her own Sirius XM Radio show. Rosie Radio will be on daily, so I imagine it will be a much-needed return to constant controversy, considering she will have to comment on all the day's news just like she had to do on The View. The first guest should be Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who says she had to restrain herself from hitting Perez Hilton when he was on The View—a feeling a lot of people probably have to stifle when they're around Hasselbeck.
