Unabashedly Just Sayin’: Stop Just Sayin’

I’d prefer Bold statement + faggot to the aforementioned.

Unabashed RIP: Custom Car Decals

June 19th, 2010

A special request for when I leave this earth: please don’t memorialize me via custom car decal on the rear windshield of your car.

Today on Sunset and Vine, the Kia in front of me memorialized Tay-Tay (1981-2009), not with a decal, but scratched into the paint.  There’s something more custom about keying your own car which I can appreciate.

Unabashed Casting Recall: James Franco as Allen Ginsberg

June 13th, 2010

Thumbing through my LA Gay and Lezzie Film festival guide, I was forlorn to see a too-attractive wasp sitting at a typewriter wearing a white tee and Buddy Holly glasses with the word “HOWL” next to it and, moreover, the name “James Franco” under that.  I say Goddamn!  Put a hot guy in anything and gays will eat it up.  Shit.  Ginsberg wasn’t a hot Aryan, he was a handsome Jew.  James Franco is a mere showpiece, a tart.  Where’s Jeff Goldblum when you need him?

It's fun to be a gay beat poet!
