Sometimes, the truth hurts. In this case, the truth is that these depicted friends are only representatives of a greater problem. That show-tune lover, however, has two children and I think it would be unfair to insinuate the obvious implications of that. So, his identity shall stay hidden to protect the innocent… and Jake and Meg will be forced to sing the Music Man. Really, though – let me be honest here… most of my straight friends are conventionally “gayer” than I am. I’ve been told most often that my partner and I live like any two bachelors would live, and honestly – that’s a huge comfort… though this weekend we have all intentions of rectifying the current state of our home. The winter is a hard time on we of the fur persuasion… I’m somewhat certain that the more body-hair covers a man’s body, the more that he just wants to hibernate for the winter… and I get nowhere near the sleep that I should… My head tells me 8 hours, my body tells 6 months, and in honesty – I get about 4 hours. Blah.
In other news, I’m thinking I need to recruit some of my more ‘full-bodied buddies’ to model some t-shirts for me sometime here in the near future. Aside from the basic BtL logo t-shirt I have up right now, I’m going to be developing a few more in the coming weeks. Some as references to previous comics and some more on both the generic “safe” front and others on the more… risqué front.
I know that it always seemed funny to me how strange the looks are when I wear my Small Town Gay Bar t-shirt. I always wondered why people who read t-shirts feel the need to discuss what they say with you. “Small Town… what does it say there? Does that say ‘gay’? Is that a joke that I don’t get? Should I be offended? Am I gay now that I read it?” And the answer is ‘yes’. Sometimes it amuses me, and sometimes… well… I just don’t wear that shirt.
The guy who made Small Town Gay Bar (a documentary about gay bars in the deep South) is starting to get more information out about his new film, entitled Bear Nation… I’m intrigued by the concept of any Bear film, of course for the visuals – but more-so on the message… I mean, I watched Bear Run so I know where things can be right and where they can feel… awkward. So – I’m hoping that I can manage to get a viewing in and be able to adequately review it… What the hell – maybe I could even do that here. Who knows what the future might hold.
