  1. What's with all the Mika promotion over the past couple weeks? Is Andy getting paid off by his record company or something?

  2. Andy posts what he likes on his blog, and I'm not sure why you'd single out that tiny mention in the news to accuse him of being paid off..

  3. If Neil Giuliano of GLAAD knew the Isaiah Washington story was so important why didn't GLAAD do anything in October when the story broke?

    GLAAD is absolutely useless.

  4. If there's any sort of kickback Andy may get, I'd think it would relate to Pink is the new blog...there seems to be a daily link to it. Ugh.

  5. >>Andy posts what he likes on his blog, and I'm not sure why you'd single out that tiny mention in the news to accuse him of being paid off.

    Um, this is like the third mention in less than 2 weeks of Mika. The first was a lengthy post about him as an artist and his style of music, the second was about a recent live performance he attended.

    I just find it interesting that soon after Andy raves about a particular movie or artist he saw, ads for that movie or artist start popping up on his website. It happened with Dreamgirls and also, I believe, with Notes On A Scandal.

    Not an accusation, just an observation...

    Who knows, maybe this is just a way Andy has of attracting advertising dollars to his website. Somebody sees him and others rave about a movie or particular musical artist and decide to put an ad on the site as a result.

  7. Bleeping out "God" is too funny. Imagine how people were filling in the bleeps in their heads!

  9. Hi guys, I noticed the thread on advertising/editorial and just wanted to assure you that nobody here is getting paid off.

    Mika happens to be a hot artist right now that I enjoy. And you may ahve noticed that when I begin to follow a story (like a gay bashing, or a political scandal, or a mysterious ex-gay singer), I tend to follow the story until it is played out. That goes the same for artists or entertainers I find interest in that have something going on in the news. Some may see it as obsessive, I see it as giving the site a sense of consistency.

    I generally promote what I like or find interesting, for that reason only. The reason you may have seen Notes on a Scandal or Dreamgirls ads is because a) the advertisers know where to find their audience, or b) Google adsense works contextually and places ads based on the content of the site.

  10. ANDY how dare you put things on your blog that you like. You must be getting paid by Isaiah Washington or his treatment center as well. I just hope it's not from GLAAD.

  11. Andy,

    That makes sense to me. Thanks for the explanation.

  12. Regarding the unanswered questions, I didn't read anything about how they get the caramel in the Caramilk bar or why that fucking chicken crossed the damn road!

    Are those answered???

    I think not!

    Important???

    I doth thinketh !

  13. This Kocis murder out in PA, wow, pretty shocking stuff.

    BTW, Brent Corrigan is actually 20 right now, not 21 (born Oct 31 1986). He is scheduled to do a performance here at a gay club in San Diego tomorrow; it'll be interesting to see if he's forced to cancel the engagement because of all this new drama.

  14. Neil Guiliano (sp?), President of GLAAD met with Isaiah Washington. He (Guiliano) isn't calling for Washington to be fired, but rather was diplomatic, understanding and hopes that the counseling Washington is getting will help him. Of course, Washington's actions will speak for themself in the future, but this is exactly what I suggested from the moment I read about the story (not fire him, get counseling, judge his future actions), while 70% (est.) psoting on this blog wanted his ass canned immediately. Are those 70% going ton ow ask for the head of Guiliano on a platter?

  15. Bleeping God. I love it!

    I would love to apply that logic to our leadership. I positivly CRINGE every time I hear that Born Again asshole (W)and his followers say "God Bless America". I want to ask "Which God blessed America?" He white, Judeo-Christian God? How about a Hindhu God or Goddess? Perhaps it was the Muslim God, Mohamad, that convinced Ata to plow the jet into the WTC? Which God blessed America?

    As far as I am concerned, our leadership has been nothing but a long [bleep] in the [bleep].

  16. Only after sampling Mika's tracks on iTunes did I realize that I have been hearing snippets of "Love Today" on television (sans lyrics) and wondered who it was. Very catchy.

    Ok, I might sip the kool aid a little on this one.

    Posted by: mark m | Jan 26, 2007 6:09:27 PM


  17. Thanks for the answer Andy, it's appreciated. And keep up the good work on your blog, we enjoy it very much!

    Posted by: Da | Jan 26, 2007 9:10:51 PM


  18. GLAAD's Neil Giuliano is a joke...he probably has the hots for Mr Wasington which is why he only has positive things to say on his 'process'

    and he's not very attractive either IMO

  19. Andy, I've been reading this blog for a while. Thanks for the heads up on Mika. Can't wait 'til the entire CD drops here in the states. The two songs on iTunes are not enough.
    As for the whole IW thing, TR was at the opening of "At Least It's Pink" and was in high spirits. I don't think he has let any of this get to him

  20. I think the whole Bryan Kocis story is crazy, I just got one of his emailers this week. I hope they solve this murder case! I wonder what happens to his company, doesn't sound like he has a family or much friends.
