Speedo Sunday




There Went Rhymin’ Simon



Bittersweet evening seeing the great Paul Simon tonight in Queens for the final performance on his farewell tour, wishing my brother Bill were here like he and Terence were for Art Garfunkel in 2015. Bill introduced us to Simon and Garfunkel as kids — we’d play their albums constantly in our basement on 13 Mile while hanging out or playing table tennis — and the love never faded.

'There Is a Special Hell for People Who Tear Down People Who Dare to Speak Up'


I'm so proud to call the woman who wrote this a friend:
As a survivor of sexual abuse as a child, you just didn't talk about it.  And just when you think times have changed, you have people arguing that boys will be boys or why did she wait so long to come out? Let me tell you in no uncertain terms, it's mortifying, humiliating, and very scary. You feel fear that your abuser will harm you or no one will believe you or even worse you will be blamed. This woman had to leave her home and hide her family as she is getting death threats, yeah, makes sense she is just making this up. WTF is wrong with people? For all of you making these arguments, pray that boys will stop being boys or that your daughters, sisters, aunts, or friends will have the courage and strength to speak up and out against abuse of any kind but don't be surprised if they don't with how people still react! There is a special hell for abusers and those who defend them or tear down people who dare to speak up. AND I am not saying Kavanaugh did or didn't do it, I'm saying these are ignorant responses being made by ignorant people, yeah, I mean Trump.

Twinsies!


Photo/message sent to me from a high school friend. I'm always fascinated when other people think they've seen my doppelgänger, because do any of us really know how others see us? In a recent diversity work meeting, we all had to go around the table and tell our colleagues the one thing people immediately think about you just by your appearance that is 100% not true. I drew a blank ... what about you?

Exhibitions aren't my favorite, but these boys sure clean up nicely!

The Wrap: Michael Rapaport went ape-shit that people are saying Bert and Ernie are gay -- "grown-ass, sick lunatics are worried about the sexual orientation of puppets made for teaching and educating children" -- yet I don't remember him or anyone else being outraged when Miss Piggy was romantically pursuing Kermit the Frog ... and where do Muppet babies come from? That's what homophobia looks like.
