Pride Film Festival: Let’s talk about the T.

I guess that I’ve been somewhat fortunate that I’ve had incredible exposure to diversity in my life and that whenever I’m presented with something new, it rarely throws me for a loop.

Like transgender individuals.

Apparently I’m oblivious to the social problems that face the Ts because although I lived with one I never really […]

Holy Cow! An Excellent Lesbian Film at Pride Film Festival

I figured that after heaping praise on Butthole Lickin’ yesterday that my luck was going to run out and that Saturday night’s feature film, a “lesbian comedy” was going to suck and that for 70 minutes I would be watching time go by so very, very slowly.

Instead I’d like to report that “And Then […]

It’s So Gay: The Pride Film Festival Friday Steers Queer

I’m about to make a claim that may or may not be true, but from my perspective the vast majority of lesbian films are awful.

I’ve suffered through Go Fish and The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant, to name two of the worst. Lesbian films are filled with women sitting around and talking with […]

Conversation Gone Bad

I was running a website in the background today when I got a chat request.

The transcript is below, only the name of the other person has been vaguely modified.

You are now chatting with jadedevone_adulthunt. >> hey jadedevone_adulthunt: whats up man? jadedevone_adulthunt: how are you? >> not much, working on work >> […]

My Arm’s Been Banded: Pride Film Festival Night 1

Even though my birthday’s not quite here, yet, Mateo and Chaz have already given me my birthday present: a weekend pass to this year’s Pride Film Festival in Bloomington, Indiana.

Thus the timing of this trip to the States has worked out magnificently and instead of finding myself looking for things to do on the […]

Weekend Plans

The Buskirk Chumley Indiana Theater, Bloomington

This weekend is the Pride Film Festival here in Bloomington, and I am going every single night!

After figuring out how to navigate the festival’s calendar I realized that I’ve already seen two of the films: Patrick 1.5 and Coming Out.

The former I watched with my Pseudo […]

Avoiding Clichés

It’s all too easy, when visiting Bloomington, to resort to that old Indiana chestnut, “Back Home Again.”

It’s not that I’m back home, but I am some place comfortable – I have a hotel from where I can walk pretty much everywhere worth going. I can walk to restaurants, campus, meetings, the library, and to, […]

Two Thousand Blog Posts

Wow, when I realized that the 2,000th blog post was getting closer, I thought that when it arrived I would have something profound to say.

Well, it’s here, and I have nothing profound to say.

I view my blog as a way to vent and as a way to record my life’s goings-on. I like […]

Lagging Behind…

I am one of the strangest people I know because everything I’ve read says that time shifting from Europe to America should be easy as pie and going from America to Europe takes days.

The thing is, when I fly from America to Europe, the next morning I am on European time, but when I […]

Surprisingly Good Eats in Indianapolis!

This trip I spent a couple nights in Indy attempting to adjust to local time while visiting Koko and Boy. Food-wise, there wasn’t a single restaurant in the city that I really wanted to return to immediately as all my old favorites have either slowly decayed or closed.

I’m happy to report that this time […]
