Filling In For Susan Sarandon At Burning Man This Year Will Be...  »  Ron's Log
Grover Norquist?! Would Twitter lie? Its official. Samah and I are off to "Burning Man" this year. Scratch one from the Bucket List.— Grover Norquist (@GroverNorquist) July 28, 2014 Wikipedia. If he gifts me on the playa, I'll let you know. I wonder if he delayed this announcement until he got his tickets in the mail or if he was in the STEP program and just got the email that his tickets will be at Will Call. ...

Club Cleveland To Become Apartment Building  »  Bathhouse Blog
Club Cleveland has been empty for a few years. It used to be the only game in town until the chain of Flex Spa opened a franchise in Cleveland. I don’t know the circumstances that led to Club Cleveland shutting its doors. Its Facebook page is still up and according to one poster the club owned $63,000 in property taxes. Regardless they have been closed since 2010. In 2012 the building even sustained further damage due to Hurricane Sandy. So the chances of someone opening up a new bathhouse in that building was nil. It would be a ...

Should We Not Have Done That…?  »  The Story So Far
A soldier in the war against the homosexual menace has a road to Damascus moment… As she sobbed over the breakup of her parents and family, an errant thought darted through my head: If we as a society didn’t condemn homosexuality, gay people wouldn’t feel pressured into marrying heterosexually, against their true attractions, and families […] ...

On NC's Attorney General and the bipartisan hunt for a 'culture war' off ramp  »  Good As You
North Carolina's Democratic Attorney General has announced that he will no longer defend his state's discriminatory marriage ban, as he believes it would be "futile" in light of today's 4th Circuit ruling in favor of equality: AG Roy Cooper says federal decision in VA clears way for gay marriage in NC [News & Observer] And he's right. Marriage equality is inevitable, and people who are inclined to care about justice and their legacies want to be recorded on the right side. But the politics of it are even more interesting. Increasingly we are seeing political figures from both sides ...

Box Office: Lucy! Hercules! Plus Monkeys, Planes and Stuff  »  popbytes
  • What’s funny about last weekend’s box office is that the two main releases, Lucy and Hercules, were really cut from the same cloth: Both were big loud action movies that so lovingly embraced the conventions they were in that they ended up turning into brilliantly entertaining little nuggets of cinema. But ultimately, Lucy wound up winning this weekend with a $44 Million opening, which is what happens when you give director Luc Besson room to do his thing. Fifth Element represent!
  • And likewise, Hercules took home the silver medal this week with a $29 Million opening. And now for some reason all

Beyoncé: Kim Kardashian will not social climb via my rung!  »  popbytes
Remember that time Beyoncé reportedly bailed on Kim Kardashian‘s wedding because she didn’t want to be on Kim’s trashy reality TV show? Of course you do, because that tiny spark of hope is what keeps us going through this dark night known as “The Kardashians’ Fame”. Anyway, RadarOnline has brought it up again, with a new story about how Beyoncé reportedly said that she doesn’t want Kim or any of her family to start using her as a rung in the social climbing ladder … “Beyoncé wasn’t going to allow a Kardashian to socially climb ...

Read: 4th Circuit strikes down Virginia marriage ban  »  Good As You
Since Windsor, we are twenty-nine for twenty-nine in the courts. Here's the right side of history's latest decision (vindication?): "We recognize that same-sex marriage makes some people deeply uncomfortable. However, inertia and apprehension are not legitimate bases for denying same-sex couples due process and equal protection of the laws. Civil marriage is one of the cornerstones of our way of life. It allows individuals to celebrate and publicly declare their intentions to form lifelong partnerships, which provide unparalleled intimacy, companionship, emotional support, and security. The choice of whether and whom to marry is an intensely personal decision that alters the course ...

Man who stands in way of Texas equality works to stunt economic windfall as well  »  Good As You
Responding to the obvious-stated report that Texas' economy would benefit if it opened the booming wedding economy to same-sex couples, the state's head of the self-appointed morality police, Jonathan Saenz, wonders the following: [SOURCE] Of course the answer is no because responsible researchers prefer to cull their data from sensible study and projections based off the many states that have had marriage equality for some time now rather than the fear mongering of people who collect a paycheck off of this form of discrimination. But that's the thing with anti-gay activists circa 2014: they act like it's ...
