Furry Friday

handsome, hairy, hunkI had a request come in recently asking me to post photos of “Men”. I think what they meant was guys who might actually remember the 1970s and 1980s. Growing older definitely has some drawbacks but this guy makes it look easy.

BosGuy brain teaser

riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.

I’ll confirm answers in the afternoon so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance to guess.

This week’s brain teaser:

My spine limp but I stand straight up
I mark the passing of time but not the date
My sacrifice puts souls at ease but doesn’t bring them back
What am I?

I dedicate this weekly post, featuring vintage gay photographs, to the men and women who lived in a more critical time where being true to yourself and loving who you want wasn’t always an option and came at a great price. Do you have a photo you would like to share?

Gollum reads Donald Trump tweets

Andy Serkis, Trump Tweets

Andy Serkis is an English actor and director probably best known as the voice of Gollum, a fictional character from The Lord of the Rings movies. Last week he happened to be on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert when the host, Stephen Colbert, asked if he would read one of Donald Trump’s recent tweets.

This could make for a great political commercial next fall. It is both hilarious and frightening. If you missed it, check out this 90-second clip.

InstagramThis week on Instagram I’m featuring someone who I’ve never met in person but who I’ve carried on conversations with using Twitter.

Onerebeldeveil has a great sense of humor and he uses his IG account to post a combination of what I’ll refer to as man candy photos and humorous pictures. A great example of the latter posts is the post I shared below.
