I don’t do emoticons. I know words
To shit on other people’s dreams while daddy buys you yours makes you the very worst kind of person. And you’re ugly too. - Buddha
An Insensitive Clod
I know, I’m a dick. I know, the tornadoes in Oklahoma are awful. I’m from New York. Where Sandy tore through. In October. I have friends who are cooking in their bathrooms, because they can’t access the ground floors of their homes, still. I have friends who didn’t have heat throughout the whole, really cold, Winter we just had. I have friends who just got, and I mean...

On Maturity And Aging.
Maturity happens in the brain and manifests in the personality. It is not guaranteed, usually requiring pain, loss, struggle and the unhappiness of life to attain, and therefore remains elusive to some. It requires experiences that force you to look inward, which creates empathy. It’s nature is to fluctuate, to be in abundance, then at once, to suddenly disappear. It is hard-won and worthy...
A big dick needs love. A small dick needs a really good cook attached to it.
Oscar Hammerstein II
He wrote these lyrics in 1949 “You’ve Got To Be Carefully Taught,” (Lyrics from South Pacific.) You’ve got to be taught to hate and fear, You’ve got to be taught from year to year, It’s got to be drummed in your dear little ear, You’ve got to be carefully taught. You’ve got to be taught to be afraid Of people whose eyes are oddly made, And...
Save The Vaseline.
Tonight, while trying to give notes and warnings and a bit of advice to a group of high school actors before the second and final performance of the show we’d been working together on for weeks, some of the boys decided to mess with me. I know the boys, They know I’m gay, they don’t seem affected by it and it’s not ever an issue. We have a respect for each other, largely...
The denial of marriage equality is exactly the kind of tyranny we should bear arms against.
This song is freaking out the dog.
I was given the chance to direct a play in a local High School with kids I know well and was asked what play I’d like to do. I have an idea about staging The Laramie Project, which I’ve done before, but would like to include other members of the school community to contribute to an art exhibit focusing on acceptance and anti-bullying, including short essays by students, that the...
The argument goes that violent video games, shooting a fake gun at fake life, and watching violent movies, passively observing what you know is staged, desensitizes people, making it more likely that they will commit real gun violence in real life. Also, gun ownership rights should be protected for the sake of sport hunting. Following a string of logic, why wouldn’t sport hunting, using...
So…This was my 14 year old lead singing his establishing number, Sweet Transvestite.
The mentally ill and the second amendment.
It seems to me that the supporters of an extreme interpretation of the second amendment are missing a point. In wanting to put the mentally ill on public lists the NRA are becoming the very sort of intrusive government that they claim the second amendment is there to defend against. Why are the gun people not put on lists? They don’t want their names on lists. That’s a government...
All hope abandon, ye who enter here.– Dante. And my tramp stamp.
My father was alcoholic. My mother was foodaholic. I smoked cigarettes for 32 years. I was high every day for at least 15 years. Then I got pneumonia and had a heart attack. The cardiologist who installed the first stent told me I could never smoke a cigarette again, but I could smoke all the pot I wanted. Three days later, I had another heart attack. Then the cardiologist told me I could...
