Things That Are Random

Back Off Hiatus!

Hello queers! Thank you for all your kind, loving tweets/words/emails about the GRE. I kicked its standardized butt! Well, maybe not in math (only 154) but I got a 165 in Verbal Reasoning and a 5.5 in Analytical Writing. And of course, now I’m ready to take on the World! As you may have guessed [...]


It Broke

Hi Readers– Something about the blog is officially broken.  I’m working on fixing it.  This is the obligatory “don’t judge me post.”  Thanks guys!


Autostraddle. Look What I Get To Do For Three Weeks.

    Autostraddle — “Common Gender” Brings A Queer Love Story to Bollywood. The cat’s out of the bag now, as my first post went up today.  I recently applied to Autostraddle for one of their contributing editor positions and was accepted on a trial basis for the next three weeks.  That link up there? [...]


Blog Hiatus Until August 15th

Due to GRE prep, I’m putting my blog on hiatus until August 15th. Wish me luck, my possums! I do not take standardized tests well! I’m going to need it.  


Why I’m Proud To Write Subversive Smut

Events in my life have taken a turn lately and I’ve been writing things that aren’t smut. Actually, that have nothing to do with sex. And that has led to a strange disconnect–a sort of half and half split, a Jekyll and Hyde. And lately I’ve found myself in more and more situations where I’ve [...]


A Very L-Word Trip Down Memory Lane

The L-Word went off the air the year I came out. I just checked, because I didn’t remember. I never had showtime or HBO or whatever the hell it aired on and I went out and bought the DVD boxed sets to the detriment of my budget because I couldn’t stop. I was addicted, sewn [...]


This Blog Is Currently on Hiatus Due to a Break Up and NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month!  Broke up with Jae!  Gah!  Wanted to check in with all of you to tell you I’m having a great, healing time writing a novel this month that has zero to do with sex.  I will be back in December with a lovely review of some anal lube Babeland sent me. [...]


Why “Fish Out Of Water” Was Really Important for Me to See

This all started when my father asked his church for their stance on homosexuality. Or perhaps it started earlier than that. Our church makes up the majority of my childhood memories and friends. We had the coolest minister when I was little. A live and let live kind of guy who preached love above all [...]


Why I Should Occasionally Post Stuff Outside of Overt Queer Sex

I wanted to take a moment to explain why I posted that sappy poem yesterday (it’s a first draft, so don’t roll your eyes out of your head just yet, I’m sure it’ll be good one day.)  The poem had nothing overt to do with sex or being queer, which really are my main aims [...]


I’m Sure of It

This is dedicated to anyone, and I’m sure there are many, who have sat in the parking lot in the mall where they work their shitty retail job singing “Louder Than Words” by Jonathan Larson, eyes closed, pretending they do not see the cold, soulless monolithic shrine to consumerism before them. To anyone who sits [...]
