No Longer Live From New York: SNL's Don Pardo Dies @ 96 Comments (0)

Don-PardoFebruary 22, 1918—August 18, 2014

Don Pardo, the instantly recognizable, mellifluous voice of Saturday Night Live, has died at the age of 96. “Jaws” is not a suspect.

Pardo had been with NBC since 1944—a cool 70 years on the job. He celebrated his ninetieth on the set of SNL and had apparently worked for SNL in-studio nearly continuously up until his death.

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.

Star Magazine implying gay people aren't quite right? Not normal! This took off on several blogs and GLAAD got an apology from Trunzo over it. Some people think it's being "oversensitive," but Jesus...how much clearer is "Man to man" with a huge "NOT" (NORMAL) stamped over it?

Lady-Gaga-Madonna-Born-This-Way-Express-Yourself
Lady Gaga did herself and Madonna big favor on SNL last night, making self-deprecating light of comparisons between the two. In a skit about "bad cover songs," she lip-synched "Born This Way" while doing Madonna moves (including some vogueing). If only she'd taken the piss out of their pissing match two years ago with something like this...
