    I stumbled upon this article and now realize that it's from last year, but it's cool and I hadn't heard about this before, so I'm posting it anyway:

    I guess that opens the door a crack. Still a sort of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Southie-Style. But the group can carry their MassEquality banner and wear their T-shirts...so that's something positive.

    The St Patrick's Day parade organisers in New York and Boston are stuck in the past of an Ireland that doesn't exist any more except in their own imaginations. It's pathetic really.

    And the irony is that LGBT Irish people can march openly in Dublin's St. Patrick's Day Parade!

    Mayor Walsh said that it's just one or two older members of the Southie parade committee who are so staunchly against changing their policy.

    Yeah, sure. :lol: I've no doubt that some of these actors and actresses were gay or bisexual, but it's strange that none are still around to refute it. And he slept with all of them (the men anyway) ? Wow, he must have been REALLY attractive. Sounds to me as though he's been adding a lot of fantasy flesh to the gay skeleton.

    That's going to kill any aspirations of a healthy fanbase...which is thin to begin with! :wall:



    We only have one episode left until 2015!!!!!!!!!! :eek:

    OMG! Watching Daniel Radcliffe give it all in "Kill your Darlings" has left me drained. :eek: What a talent! I mean he gave a great performance.

    I urge everyone to go watch this film. It's an instant gay classic.


    Also, no one watched Looking's final episode? :confused: I thought it wrapped (for the most part) very nicely. Patrick needs to grow a bit more in order to be ready for a serious relationship.

    Richie needs to sort his baggage before he can think of having a stable relationship.

    Kevin, what an ass! Sorry but imo he used his position as a way to pressure Patrick into having sex with him.

    btw wouldn't there be security cameras in the sitting/sofa area? I am pretty sure an office like that would have them... :eek:

    I felt a bit let down by the last episode. I can't even put my finger on why. It sort of put in this closure over everything that seemed quite forced I guess?

    Sam Adams beer manufacturer pulls out of South Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade

    Sam Adams is tied for first place in being the best selling domestically brewed beer. It has been a major sponsor of the St. Patrick's Day parade, but no longer. Several Boston radio stations have also pulled all support for this event.

    The Kylie single flopped (number 12 in the first week in the UK). :(

    I blame the SERIOUSFACE arty farty video. Seriously who thought it would be a good fir for a camp, happy, MDMA-spiced club track?

    So now she has decided to go in the exact opposite direction and release a a very subtle fake-lesbian video to Sexercize. (she meant 'Sexercise'). It's rather desperate, I'm sure you will agree. Terrible track as well. The whole "Kiss Me Once" album is very disappointing. :(

    It will keep the gay fans happy though as the promotional campaign includes various video 'interpretations' of the song like this one, including male underwear models. (Still desperate).

    Isn't all pop music these days desperate and disappointing? It could just be that as I age, I no longer get the appeal. I'm a lot crankier and bitch a lot more now. *sigh* :shuffle: The video did however reaffirm the fact that I much prefer fuzzy guys over smooth guys; I don't like the plastic look, sorry.

    No.

    A few fantastic pop tracks from the last few months:

    Allie X "Catch"
    Linnea Dale "High Hopes"
    Tove Lo "Habits" ('I eat my dinner in the bath tub / then I go to sex clubs' is one of the best opening lines ever :cheer:)
    Zhala "Prophet"

    Same here but I think the main problem was the plastic faces and not as much the lack of body hair. When Marina did the same (frolicking with underwear models under the showers) for her video, the results were much more satisfactory. Marina & the Diamonds "How to Be a Heartbreaker". :swoon:
