Lady Gaga New Video - The Edge of Glory

OK, I admit I am a big Lady Gaga fan and her latest video adds more fuel to that fire!  How can you not like this?

Faux Lesbians and the Blogosphere

As thought it wasn't bad enough that the lesbian blogger Amina Arraf on the blog “A Gay Girl in Damascus” turned out to not only be not Syrian, but a man, now the popular lesbian blogger “Paula Brooks,” editor of Lez Get Real" turns out to be a dude as well! 

As the blog world reels from the shock, I frankly am not surprised.  Consider how many people you may have chatted with online.  Have you ever met any of them in person?  Most likely not many.  Just because you have a Facebook page and an avatar of a hot guy or hot girl doesn't mean a thing.  The world of online communication is most text based.  As a writer, I understand very well how easy it is to write in a different persona.  It's what writers of fiction do all the time, so why can't peoiple get through their heads that their online friends may not be at all who they claim.

The story of Paula Brooks is only now beginning to play out, I expect several more well known bloggers may be exposed as not being who they say they are. For my readers, I assure you that the picture on my blog is me, and I am who I say I am.  Just Google me....after all if it's on the internet it must be true!

Half-Shares - New Comedy Series Pilot

I am a big Alec Mapa fan, so this was perfect for me. Looks like a pilot in search of a network. I hope it finds one. because it looks very funny. Think Fire Island meets Ab-Fab.

Surfing Geese - Silly Video

Yes this is silly, but I needed a laugh today.  According to the source, no geese were injured and some even did it again.

Rick Santorum - New Definition: "Sorry Sack of Santroum."

So Rick Santorum in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon says that "he has gay friends."  Furthermore, Santorum states that he "loves his gay friends".  What he forgets is that he wants his gay friends to be second class citizens.  This sorry sack of shit actually expects us to by the same crap bigots used during the 1960 saying, "I have black friends" and then expects the listener to figure he isn't such a bad guy.

Sorry Rick, I don't believe you for a minute.  A friend wouldn't treat a friend like you do LGBT people.  So that makes you not only a "Frothy mix of lube and fecal matter" but a lying sack of Santorum.
