FCKH8 :F-bomb goes ballistic

Totally not safe for work, but it'd be worth the ensuing job search just to see the reactions.

I gotta get this t-shirt.

National Coming Out Day 2010

Here on the cusp of so many suicides by gay and lesbian and transgender young people, I wasn't sure I would make this video. So I sat at my desk with five files open. Should it be one? Should it be two? Should it stay five? And what font?

Really. I was thinking those very thoughts, and I decided that I was wasting whatever it is I am and have, so I went for a walk, which is my custom these days. Perhaps later, it'll be for a run.

During the walk, I made about 30 minutes of video, and then deleted most of it. Here are the nine minutes that survived.

Sunday morning at the J.C. Raulston Arboretum

Oh what was I thinking? After the grand hoof-about around the ever lovely KMart, I noodled up past the Shell (where I fetched more coffee), and trundled across and about the arb. Hardly anyone else was there, except for a raucous couple in the accursed white garden.

Arrived, I have

Well, in a manner of speaking. Maybe. Somewhat.

It wasn't enough to participate in the field-defining publication: Assessing Performance.

Oh, no. How could that ever suffice?

Then there was the heart-rending compilation: Foursquare and me.

So let's lay it on even deeper: When I was a cat.

All soon to be followed by a collection of white trash haiku. Well, we're supposed to write about the stuff we know, are we not?

Lightning and the Tree: Reprise

A few month ago during a summer storm, lightning struck this tree and rattled my dishes. The tree roots were blown from the ground at the edge of this cemetery. There have so far been no reports of undead, well, except for the few exceptions over by the airport.

It gets better

If you're not aware, there's a large project over on YouTube that is focused on a concerted response to the alarming up-tick in gay suicides finding their way to the mainstream media now.

After some reflection, I decided to contribute to the project. Although I do not expect to be included in the final product, it was cathartic to make the video.
