I'll Fly Above It

There are many elements to being gay in Bakersfield and I often wonder if those elements are found in bigger cities. Just yesterday I received an e-mail from a person that I thought was my friend--who basically told me that he really doesn't like talking to me. He said that I follow him around like a "rock star groupie" and he doesn't like it and I needed to "get over it". I was in shock since Alex (my bff) and I talked to him about 2 months ago and everything was fine. Suddenly I became the spawn of Satan and he told me that he wanted nothing to do with me.
I wrote him back and apologized if I did or said something that might have been considered inappropriate. I ended the letter saying that I will assume this is our last conversation and I would not bother him any longer. Then he flipped out on me! Telling me about all of the pressure he's under at work, etc.
In the past I might have been deeply hurt and gotten very depressed, but not this time. I can't make his issues my issues. I just don't care enough about him to allow myself to fall into this "depression" trap. Progress. It is being made, kids.

for Halloween this year@

First of all, let me begin by saying that I did not go to GAY PRIDE this year and that says quite a lot because one of my best friends Juan Cerda was involved in planning the event. I was told it was very nice, and I'm actually sorry that I didn't go.I did go to THE CASA and let me tell you that my experience there was not a good one. First of all, THE CASA has always had the policy of getting in free before 10 pm. My friend and I arrived there at 9:30 pm and I noticed that the people in front of me were paying. The cashier told that they were charging $10.00 admission tonight in honor of Pride. So, no matter what time you arrived--you were paying $10.00 to get in. The Casa is normally priced $7.00, so I then asked the cashier if the extra $3.00 was going to a local gay and lesbian charity and I was told "no". So where did that $3.00 go? It certainly didn't go to Ruben (the hardest and sweetest working bartender I have ever seen in my life) or to Michael (who keeps the place clean). There was no air conditioning--so it was hotter than hell in there, so it certainly didn't go there. I'll tell you where it went--into the pocket books of the people who own the CASA. Being the only gay and lesbian bar in town, they were able to make an extra profit on a very special day, which makes me sick to my stomach. The CASA isn't even worth $7 let alone $10, so they made a ton of extra money on Saturday.At past gay and lesbian "events", THE RAINBOW ROOM let people who had wristbands from events get into THE RAINBOW ROOM for free. Why do we continue to support an establishment that basically just fucked us for $3 extra dollars? I'm no longer going to THE CASA, which is sad because I have made a lot of great people there, but last Saturday pissed me off. Shame on them.

Actor Jackie Earle Haley has been announced as an early favorite to play the evil SINESTRO in the GREEN LANTERN movie. I think he would be brilliant in the film!

Sometimes I just don't understand myself and why I do certain things. I feel that I'm a good person, but I seem to do bad things that one might consider "evil". It hurts to admit that about myself...

Why is it that some guys just have natural sex appeal, while others have to work at it?

Go Good!

Yesterday, my pal Juan and I went to the LONG BEACH COMIC CONVENTION. I must say that I was rather impressed with this first time effort and everyone was extremely kind. It was very nice to once again see writer Marc Andreyko, who wrote the graphic novel adaption of the film TRICK 'r TREAT. He kindly autographed the novel for me and was shocked when I told him that I am looking forward to seeing the film for the first time on DVD this Tuesday. Everyone who has seen this film has told me that it is excellent, so why didn't we get it in Bakersfield? Why did THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN play for only 3 days? I have no idea of how the industry works, but has to be a crowd that is willing to see original ideas when it come to horror--even if the movie sucks.

I will admit right now that I am stealing this brilliant idea from my pal Vyktor. Not in any order, but these are the top 20 things I am currently hating at the moment. Let's do it!

1. Most of the members of the Avengers titles

2. Attitude from people in West Hollywood

3. Madonna doing another greatest hits album

4. Smoking

5. Project Runway not being on Bravo

6. X-Men

7. Horror movies that should be rated "R", but are made "PG-13"

8. FEARnet not being carried by my cable company

9. Toby Keith

10. Kathy Griffin's book

11. People who think comics are for children

12. Tight shirts on skinny men

13. Tight shirts on heavy men

14. Transformer 2

15. Toy collectors who get crazy while in line for a toy

16. Hardcore Rap

17. Not having a good gay bar in Bakersfield, CA.

18. Rachel Zoe

19. The new Melrose Place

2o. Yes on Prop 8

Super Powers

When I was a little boy, I wanted the SUPER POWERS action figures so badly! For my birthday, my brother bought me Martian Manhunter and I thought it was so cool because no one in the neighborhood had him. The ones I wished I had were FIRESTORM, BATMAN, and GREEN LANTERN. Oh, to be young again!

Too Much Fun!

Juan and I at Gay Day at Magic Mountain!
