On Local “Real Food”: Farm Bloomington is overrated.

Last night, my last night in Bloomington, I wasn’t really interested in venturing too far from my hotel: although it wasn’t really cold there was a definite nip to the air and the idea of going outside for a long walk was unpleasant.

Mentally I’d settled on going to the Irish Lion—until I popped into […]

The Favorite Webvideo at the Party is below, it raises an important question. How to Make a Caipirinha Cocktail Would you go to this bartending school? […]

Another Level: Space!

Saturday night was a big night for me.

After a couple months of having nothing to do locally on the weekends, beyond watching my own movies, this past Saturday night I had TWO parties to attend. One was a housewarming party in Jena, and the other was “Gays In Space” at Weimar’s Kunst Turm.

As […]


It was as we were leaving the Lesbian Duo “Mosh Mosh” concert that my friend said, “I don’t know where I am.” Helpfully, one of the cute young men standing outside the bar/concert venue told him he was in Weimar.

It was really an excellent evening—We’d started at the Barking Dogs United: Size Matterz gallery […]

Lucky Number Slevin

Saw it tonight; not sure if I liked it or not – I think they were trying to be too much like The Usual Suspects and in doing so, failed.

The Sanctimonious Faggot’s Film Reviews

I know its been awhile since I last did anything that would specifically annoy Mr. J – that man who went after me and called me names last December (and no, I will not link to him in this post, but if you want his current URL, email me).

One of the oddest things about […]

Thick And Thin

Hopefully I will not regret this post.

In case you haven’t noticed, and there really isn’t a reason for most of you to have noticed, I was attacked this past weekend in response to some criticism I posted about the Gay Men Rule blog.

It’s kind of odd to me: As far as I can […]

Ooops, I did it, …

For Real: I’ve never really discussed it on my blog, but this past week it finally happened for real: I messed up my mobile phone number when telling it to somebody. The sad pathetic story is that my mobile phone number in Germany is surprisingly similar to a phone number I call regularly in the […]

MT Envy & Bad Food

Today was an interesting day—Lot of interesting information about Dutch policy and revitalization efforts (MT probably not envious), followed by lunch and then a fantastic lecture about the Rotterdam Ports and a two hour tour of the harbor, going in and out of the slips and getting up close and personal with the ships. I […]

Muhammad Ali Center

Muhammad Ali Center

Originally uploaded by elmada.

Today I made time, after doing laundry, to visit the Center that honors Louisville’s most famous citizen, Muhammad Ali.

Before visiting the museum I knew two factoids about the man: (a) he was a boxer; and (b) he lit the Olympic Torch in Atlanta.

Seriously, that’s […]
