Pride Aside, I’m Still Alive

Detail of a grave rubbing painting made on my gravestone (which is waiting for me in my hometown cemetery) My “portrait” you might say, by the artist Scott Covert. – oh here he is now…

Hi Scott. How long are you in town for?

Don’t cry Judy. I’m not actually dead from Pride. That’s just a typical gay exaggeration. We do it CONSTANTLY! See? ……..,.,.Judy?

ummmmm……JUDY?

Judes? Can you hear me baby?….. Judy? ……..

“Jesus Christ. “

JUDY????

OK Judy, listen to me………WHAT DID YOU TAKE?

JUDY?….answer me now…….WHAT DID YOU TAKE TONIGHT JUDY?

I can’t do this anymore. It’s not fair. This is not fair.

Oh my God, …really Judes? CONTACT COLD CAPSULES??

HOW MANY BOXES JUDY???

HOW MANY!!!

Ain’t No Remix Long Enough

Please remember that Disco was a specifically gay form of music that would eventually become all the forms of modern dance music we have today.


You’re welcome! …now let the damn record play and be proud…

More Music And Memories

This mix is sorta more of the same as the last one, like the one I played at Martin Keehn last week. There was too much, it needed a supplement. Basically the same songs I have been dancing to for thirty years. LOL. Grandpa still likes to get down…just a little slower at times. Mostly disco tracks, but somehow Adele got right in there too…keep it loose and move around.

Traffic jams, fire trucks and the sounds of what was.

Go ‘head.

The Sound Of The Gay Parade

Here it is, from 2015. I wonder if it will be five times as loud this year?…but I’m not really wondering that too hard.

I gotta say, the rainbow lei’s are making my gay heart ache. #lowestcommondenominator
