  1. Thank you, I needed a good laugh today. That Aaron Carter tall tale hit the spot.

  2. Nice to see that wealthy gay couples can be just as obnoxious and ostentatious as wealthy straight couples. Ahhh, Equality!

  4. @shawnthesheep: my thought, too. that's what Equality is about, as much as everything else.

  6. Miley Cyrus claims to be gay-friendly but fails to put male-male sensuality in her videos. What a fake she is!! She's using us.

  7. Love that the gang that "beat up" Aaron Carter would be doing it singing the "Hangin' Tough!" NYOTB tune. That image painted is a scream.

  8. So . . . we've got yet another young musician advertising himself as "queer". As long as you're trendy, who cares if you're ignorant? I do! Stuffed Animal's got discriminating tastes, and he doesn't patronize "queer" art or artists. Tacky, darling, much too tacky.

  9. Oh please, I'm really sick and tired of Buffalo jokes. Aside from the fact that it is consistently rated as the top five cities in the US for art (yes, look it up), and is one of the top two or three for American architecture, I can assure you that the Hotel Lafayette just won an award for preservation. It was built in 1905 and was considered one of the most luxurious hotels in the America, and is now fully restored to its full glory.

    If you haven't been to the city, then please go before you start bashing it.

  10. Yes, but Randy, the winter! Good God, the winter! And that's not even counting the lake effect snow.

  11. Just returned from Buffalo in Feb. Stayed at the '4 Star' Millenium Hotel'. What a bedbug infested pit. And the city is a pie-hole of a place. It is broke and crumbling. Steer clear of those who claim otherwise: their taste is well...suspect.

    Posted by: bill dawn | Jun 25, 2013 10:29:36 PM

  12. Uh, Bill? The Millenium Hotel isn't in Buffalo -- it's far from the city in a sprawling suburb. Built in the 70s, I agree it's a lousy place. Why you would stay there I don't know, but every city has lousy 70s hotels.

    But hey, glad you can judge that a nice gay couple having a wedding in their own hometown have "suspect" taste -- Guess they just aren't as cosmopolitan as you are!

  13. @randyowen, right, that picture is of the PA State Capitol.
