Horrible Haircut, The Gay Guru After Dark, International AIDS Conference Brings Out The Stars, Ohio Governor Candidate Slurs Gays, Eye Candy

****finally got pics up for you....sorry about the wait, blogger messed up****


***BLOGGER IS NOT LETTING ME UPLOAD PICS RIGHT NOW, WILL HAVE THEM UP LATER***


What's happening blogger friends, in the world of cyberland today? "IIIIIIIIIIIIIII am forbidden to produce................Milk" Sorry about that, whenever I say, hear or see the word cyberland, I cant help but think of RENT, and Maureens big show at the lot. Those fellow RENTheads out there will get it at least, lol. So I got my haircut today after work, and it made me a bit behind today, and somehow end up looking like a dweeb at the same time. I hate my hair, mostly 'cause I never know what to do with it, and I am limited by it's obsession with being curly and thick. My favorite way to wear my hair is with it clipper cut very short around the sides and back of the head, with the top left long enough to curl good and fall over all around. I ask for that each time I get my hair cut, and I actually get that cut about 60% of the time. I dont have a regular person that cuts my hair since my fave hair girl moved her shop about 2 hours North last year, so I am trying new places out and as I said, having about 60% success, but not continuing, one time it will be great, the next time it sucks, and I am off to find another salon. Oh well, enough folicle grumbling, what else?

Okay, I didnt get much comments on my post about the more risque "After Dark" Gay Guru, but I did get quite a few emails, and most were supportive of it. I have reserved a blog and a MySpace for it, they are not really set up yet, but you can go take a look and I will tinker and try to start it out this weekend. Any blogger friends who would like to link the new site, I appreciate it, but please list it as an 18 and over adult blog with "mature content", lol. I will be sending all my linking blogger friends a note letter in the week with more info if they would like to add the other site as well.

In the news, Stars On Bill For AIDS Conference: Once a stage for big-name scientists to showcase their latest research, the International AIDS Conference is also attracting another kind of star power - actors, singers, politicians and business magnates who lend their status to raise awareness and funds for global causes. The 2006 installment of the biennial AIDS conference - to be held in Toronto next month - will kick off with an opening ceremony and concert featuring a who's who from the world of entertainment and HIV/AIDS activism. The star-studded Aug. 13 concert lineup includes Alicia Keys, the Barenaked Ladies, the Blue Man Group, Our Lady Peace, Amanda Marshall and Chantal Kreviazuk. Opening ceremonies will include remarks by actor Richard Gere, Canadian Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean and UNAIDS executive director Peter Piot, followed by the concert. The event will conclude with a keynote address by Bill and Melinda Gates, whose charitable foundation supports a variety of HIV/AIDS programs, followed by a performance by Canadian opera star Measha Brueggergosman and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Invited guests also include actors Sandra Oh and Olympia Dukakis, who will be showcasing their film Three Needles, which features differing perspectives on the AIDS pandemic. Former U.S. president Bill Clinton and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, a UNAIDS special representative, are also slated to attend the conference.

Of course, here in my own backwards state of Ohio, GOP Candidate Compares Gays To Arsonists, Kleptomaniacs: Ohio's largest LGBT civil rights organization is demanding an apology from GOP gubernatorial candidate Ken Blackwell after he compared gays to criminals in a newspaper interview. Asked by the Columbus Dispatch if homosexuality is a sin and if it can be cured Blackwell said: "I think homosexuality is a lifestyle, it's a choice, and that lifestyle can be changed. I think it's a transgression against God's law, God's will. The reality is again ... that we make choices all the time. And, I think you make good choices and bad choices in terms of lifestyle. Our expectation is that one's genetic makeup might make one more inclined to be an arsonist, or may make one more inclined to be a kleptomaniac. Do I think that can be changed? Yes." Not surprisingly Blackwell, who currently is Ohio's Secretary of State, also opposes same-sex marriage. But while his Democratic opponent, Ted Strickland also opposes gay marriage, Strickland told the paper that he differs with Blackwell on 'nurture vs nature'. Aides to Blackwell did not immediately return calls for comment. A recent poll shows that Blackwell trails Strickland by more than 20 points. (Thank God!!)

And since I am running late, I will go str8 to daily Eye Candy....Hope you are having a great week, drop me a comment and tell me how life in blogger land is....GG
