I’m not a huge fan of the name of this product, but what they lack in creative branding they more than make up for with ingenuity.  I want one of these.

Saturday night video: Panti at TEDx Dublin

This talk was given by Panti at TEDx in Dublin, Ireland last September.  Panti shares her experience of the little, everyday things that can have a huge impact on the wellbeing of gay people and shares her thoughts on navigating a world in which the simple act of holding hands can be a political statement in itself.

Coming out

It is 2015 and for some, coming out and being true to who you are with your closest circle of friends and family can remain daunting.  Watching this video of the Rhodes Brothers who are fraternal twins brought me back to when I finally came out at first to friends and later my family.  It is hard to articulate how personal and terrifying this process can be for individuals and my heart broke all over again watching this clip.  I have no idea what their relationship with their father is like who apparently does not live near his sons, but his response was spot on, which only made me get more choked up.  Nearly 20 years later and I still get emotional watching the stress and pain associated with coming out.

Much thanks to NewNowNext for sharing this story since I don’t subscribe to the Rhodes Bros YT channel and missed this post from earlier in the month.

I am the locker room guy from Jimmy Kimmel Live

Is there any doubt that Late Night TV is in the midst of a Renaissance? I love Kimmel’s fictitious beef with Damon that goes back to when his former girlfriend, Sarah Silverman shared this hilarious video, I’m F*cking Matt Damon.

I’ve not been following the details of ‘DeflateGate’, but this video from Jimmy Kimmel Live last night is hilarious.  Love all those local Boston actors.

“Untitled” (Go-Go Dancing Platform), 1991

Felix Gonzalez-Torres, UCLA Hammer MuseumAre you one of those guys who doesn’t like going to museums?  Do you find them stuffy and boring? Maybe this exhibit in Los Angeles is more your speed.

Cuban artist, Felix Gonzalez-Torres’, takes the male body out of the gay club and into the museum. The installation at UCLA’s Hammer Museum consists of a lit-up platform, that is empty most of the time except for five minutes a day when a go-go dancer randomly appears. Unscheduled and unannounced, the performer dances to the music blaring from his headphones, inaudible to the guests at the museum. Not your typical installation for sure.

Thanks to Oscar Raymundo and his blog Confessions of a Boy Toy for bringing this story to my attention.

SnowMyGod: Images from Boston’s South End

Eat your heart out local television broadcasters.  Sergio stepped out today to check out the neighborhood.  While this may not be as large a storm as initially predicted it is still packing quite a punch.  Below are images Sergio snapped earlier today.
