Totally raining in my heart. Also guys that sounds like a beautiful day.

It is very frozen where I am recently and it's been a pleasure to take the dog for a walk out on the ice, watching her scrabble around like she's got wheels-for-paws.

Today I am starting on a score for a documentary about climate change

Hi gays!

Freezing here too—there have been three days in the last week where I deemed it unsafe to take the dogs for a walk. The one is really pissed at me and has been sulking around the house like she’’s suffering from melancholia.

Currently reading some Butler and Sedgwick in order to flesh out my in-progress dissertation chapter on queering the school story. Fun! (No, really.)

Love the winter so much
Everyone seems to have such a terrific day ahead, digging the creative vibes
I aim to get started on a new ambient project this weekend, trying to learn a new program though which is a pain and a half

i'm at work. my shoulders are tired and sore. i need to dig out some good stuff from the collection of a "ufologist" today. going to be not-frozen but overrun by book people next week in pasadena at a book fair.

An extremely nutty gay acquaintance messaged me this week that he had dinner in a NY coffee shop in the '70s with Douglas Sirk and Rainer Werner Fassbinder. He said RWF smelled bad.

Lauren Berlant is a talking head in the doc I am scoring and her interviews are so fascinating that I took a break to read some snippets of "Cruel Optimism"

Berlant is cool; I’m pretty sure I read a chapter of Cruel Optimism for a class once. Her (older) essay on the Lisa goes to Washington episode of The Simpsons is great.

My boyf and I have been dating for 8 months or so and I still cannot believe how hot and smart and cool he is and that someone as awesome as him also finds me hot and awesome??? It's like two people who feel out of each others leagues. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of house and disco, a huge Gengoroh Tagame tattoo on his thigh, 4 cats, and a position as executive director of Boston's lgbt film festival, who IS this person???

It's Boning Men: SPRING 2019 GAY THREAD

I am on my way to Montreal where I am shooting a video. I am planning on visiting my ex who I’m told has been living like a college kid since I moved out, house piled high with grocery delivery boxes. My current bf is having ACL trouble and I wish I was home with him online shopping for braces. Electrelane’s first album costs over $100 on vinyl, who knew?

flamboyant goon tie included, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 14:37 (one week ago) Permalink

I guess it is spring, right? New thread?

Anyway I do love big dicks, but I can only perform on them for more than 10-15 minutes before I’m like “sorry dude that’s all I got”

I haven’t bottomed in over a year at this point :( I don’t know what is wrong with me, zero desire for it

flamboyant goon tie included, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 14:41 (one week ago) Permalink

I don't think we need a new thread ever 3 months anymore, we should just have yearly ones

new spring title

recriminations from the nitpicking woke (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 18:45 (one week ago) Permalink

yearly is fine but a new title would be fine too.

Did anyone see The Miseducation of Cameron Post? It's pretty good mostly but turns over exactly as you'd expect it to it's set apart from most of these things by some excellent performances and a truly stunning turn from Chloe Grace Moretz.

I recommend the novel of Cameron Post over either film (though, yes, CP is the better of the two films). The film basically adapts the last third of the novel, so even if you have seen the film, there's a lot that will be fresh.

Timothée Charalambides (cryptosicko), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 21:30 (one week ago) Permalink

thanks for the rec! I was surprised that D A managed something so controlled. Not really something I'd have expected from her. her UK TV thing "The Bisexual" was embarrassing. Maybe she should only make things she isn't in and aren't about her. I mean, she should definitely not be in them, to be clear.

Blechh!

I went to a local musician's memorial today and got pretty emotional about it. My commitment to sobriety got sidelined by a couple of boozy nights out this past week and I'm feeling shitty about my lack of discipline. Got teary-eyed at the memorial feeling like "I need to work harder to honour my body and my time on this earth" etc.

Anyway aside from that everything is peachy good, happy boyfriend happy dog happy me
