  1. Really, Bill. Everyone knows that priests and cardinals would be hanging out with half naked boys.

    500 priests imprisoned for child sex abuse, 3 billion in payouts...

  3. The couple, who celebrates their 54th anniversary (wow!), hope you'll have many happy years to come!
    I'd like some anti-gay-marriage person tell us now, what s/he thinks about the LOVE those two men have shared.

  4. Yes, "one" example of gay longevity proves it works. Leave David Bowie alone, his music is timeless, but obviously not from your time. I'm surprised Dave Franco doesn't melt around Zac's beauty. Glad the Abbey is expanding to further accomodate the attitude.

  5. Sorry Mr. Cantor, you Repugs put yourselves into that corner by spewing your ignorance for way too long. Now turn around and face the wall.

  6. I think it is unfair to say Nintendo is "correcting" the bug when they haven't made an official announcement about it yet.

  7. Congrats and good wishes to the 54 year couple. They managed that without popular support and probably against some good-sized barriers. THEY are the kinds of folks who will benefit from Marriage Equality, more than the newbies choosing marriage because it's a current "thing", hitched today and feeding divorce lawyers in a few years. And that's fine, it's what Marriage Equality must be about for so many couples. We can't expect gay couples to be more successful than their hetero counterparts--unless, ofcourse, they have the particular qualities that nurture love for a half century.

  8. Is something finally going into the long-empty Java Detour space in WeHo? That would be rad, even if it's Abbey II.

    More congrats and best wishes to the couple celebrating their 54th together. So marvelous.

    Hahahah, Republicans are being painted with their own tar, not any feathering by the media. Whiners!

  10. Bill is disappointed the video didn't show more half naked men.

  11. Congrats to the couple celebrating their 54th anniversary, and the best line of the day:

    "Asking a gay couple which one is the wife is like asking chopsticks which is the fork," he said. "We just work together. We went from being friends to dating; became partners and became spouses. Not husband and wife."

  12. Like the couple celebrating 54 years, we are almost 72 & 62 and just passed our 42nd anniversary. It will be 3 years since the "official" wedding in Washington DC - where we met so many years ago. Still love my precious Tom.

  13. Beautiful, Stephen. The best to you and Tom for many more years together.

  14. Re: "CNN interview over satellite from the same parking lot" Um... Nancy Grace appears to be in front of a green screen in a studio... not standing outside in a parking lot.

  15. David Cooley doesn't own the Abbey, he sold it many years ago to a straight club owner and is paid to manage it now...and he already tried opening a restaurant on advantage Monica blvd called Prey that over-utilized animal prints in the decor and failed 5 months after it opened. The man is deeply in love with himself and horrible and doesn't deserve any press.

  17. The media folks at SBE need to learn how to spell complement. The Abbey peaked years ago and has gone downhill since SBE took it over.

  18. 105 year old says long life has to do with eating bacon regularly? Excellent. Choke on that,organic vegans. I'm now going to have some bacon, eggs, potato salad and wash it down with a hefeweizen. Cheers.

  19. It's not (unfortunately) the Java Detour site in Weho but the space two doors up from the Mother Lode where the dance studio used to be. Whoever builds there, taking advantage of the view toward the significantly improved park is a good idea.
