  1. Hi - can you post some kind of warning when linking to stuff on the Daily (hate)Mail? I'm sure I'm not the only person who wants to avoid giving them any page views.

  2. I wish Gym Bar in NYC would turn off the Lady Gaga and turn up the volume on the games. Although being a Cowboys fan in New York, maybe it's not a good idea to be there for the game anyway!

  3. An underground house is creepy. If you have enough money to afford that, you can afford to buy privacy and security above ground.

    I went to a bar (the Pilsner Inn) in San Francisco for more years than I care to admit before I realized it's ostensibly a gay sports bar. Oops.

  4. There are 3 gay sports bars in Chicago that play the A/V of the games. This is not a new concept but I am glad it is working in WeHo.

  5. The DNC is pathetically craven when it comes to gay issues.

  6. A bar blaring sports from a TV is revolutionary? It's everywhere. Just once, I'd love to walk into a bar or restaurant and find the TV tuned to SoapNet or Turner Classic Movies. Now THAT would be revolutionary.

  7. I was interested in the Enceladus link. Organic molecules have been found in the plume spewing from the moon's south pole. This is more evidence that the stuff of life originated in space before the Earth was formed, maybe even life itself. Life should be ubiquitous on any habitable planet.

    And that would be an empty bar, EXCEPT for you. ESPN is widely popular. SoapNet is not.

  9. Just because something is widely popular doesn't make it good. Or that I have to see it everywhere I go.
