  1. David Geffen, I have an 8-track company I might be willing to sell you if the price is right. Normally I wouldn't let such a gem get away, but I'm looking to move my money into VCR production.

  2. I wanted to give everyone a heads up about some transphobic media coverage that's going on about a recent subway crash in Boston - the Boston Herald, ABC, and Fox news have all fixated on the drivers status as a FTM individual, in a sensationalistic and homophobic way - please write these news organizations and let them know it's NOT ok!

    I posted links to all three of the articles on my blog, please take a moment to write the Herald, ABC, and Fox!

  3. I always thought Luke on Amazing Race was cute. Nice to know he's gay too.

  4. Luke wasn't the only gay contestant on The Amazing Race 15. Mel, Mike, LaKisha and Victor, who is closeted and donated to Mitt Romney's primary campaign, are all gay. Victor placed first, Luke third, LaKisha fourth, Mel and Mike sixth.

  5. Yes, Victor was OBVIOUSLY the closeted gay this season. Didn't know he contributed to MITT ROMNEY'S campaign though. Yeesh.
