The Exquisite Queer
A few months ago I had my picture taken as part of a project by Dave Kube, a student at Temple’s Tyler School of Art. He explained the project as a sort of “Exquisite Corpse” flip book of gay folks. As usual, I was incredibly uncomfortable getting my picture taken but I got through it. As a kind of payment for being part of the project, he gave his subjects a bunch of photos to take home. Mine were great! I don’t think I’ve ever looked so good. (I say this even though the pictures actually look like me!) Anyways, Dave decided to use this as his thesis project and it's on display for a few days at Temple Gallery. That’s my weird head in the upper right in the postcard above. If you want to see more of Dave’s work, the details are below.
April 22-25, 11:00 - 6:00
Reception: April 24, 6:00 - 8:00
Temple Gallery, Tyler School of Art
Norris and 12th St., Philadelphia, PA 19122
In the meantime Dave received the well-deserved First Prize in the 4th Annual Juried Art Show in March at William Way GLBT Community Center, where he showed two stunning photographs from another project. My old friend, the great Jimi Mooney (aka Helen Back) got 2nd prize for his equally beautiful collages. Look for them both in future gallery shows at Willian Way.
I’m listening to “Le Feel Internacionale” from A Wizard, A True Star by Todd Rundgren.
First block on Grindr
I took an entire month, which might be a record, but I finally got some abuse on Grindr. All I did was turn down sex with an 18 year-old. They almost never take that very well. (His messages are on the left, mine on the right.) I wish I had thought to grab his picture before I blocked him.
I’m listening to “Carioca”by Esquivel and His Orchestra from The History of Space Age Pop, Vol.3: The Stereo Action Dimension.

When this guy showed up in the chat room I put him on my gay.com “hot list” because he looked really sexy (with a nice mustache!) in his main picture on gay.com. (Not this one!) It soon became clear that he had an agenda when he almost instantly started mouthing off, out of nowhere, about how “ironic” it is that Madonna is more popular with gay men than Bob Mould is. OK, first of all, there’s nothing ironic about it. Really. Nothing at all. Second, are gay men supposed to flock to Bob Mould simply because he’s a gay man? In my opinion, he hasn’t made a good record since 1985 when Hüsker Dü were still Hardcore and, last time I checked, Bob Mould wasn’t actually popular with anyone. Why pick on gay men for not liking him? No one likes him. Besides, he sings like he’s got a hankie in his throat. When several chatters pointed some of these things out to Mr. Fixit, he retreated, saying, “I’m sorry I brought it up.” I bet.
The butcher-than-thou attitude from these Blowoff queens is really tiresome. Blowoff is probably really fun, and the audience have nice hairy faces and hard muscles, but it’s still just a circuit-style dance party with a couple of famous DJs. They play Madonna and even Britney! Please, get over yourselves. As much as I wish they did, muscles and beards (and Black and Decker cordless drills, for that matter) do not make you masculine.
Then I read his obnoxious, judgmental (I know, pot/kettle) profile, which I’ve posted in edited form below, and saw his other incredibly silly picture, above. I swear, It looks like something from bad calendar from the 80s. (Love the Daisy Dukes, honey!) Totally embarrassed, I removed him from my list immediately. Sadly, he could still see that I had added him in the first place. The limits of technology continue to vex me.
Please note: He’s already won the crunchy race! He says he “was ‘crunchy’ long before you,” so there’s no point even trying. Of course, none of the gay men reading his profile could be nearly as evolved as he is. Please. And don’t forget to “gush” at dinner.
I go to school, I am butch, smart, take care of my body, my mind and my soul....do you?
Carry on a conversation for more than 3 lines. Challenge my mind, not my dick. Do not pretend to want to get to know me if you dont read anything on my profile. You will add illiterate to other derogatory words. If all you want are pics to look at you damn well better have some in return. You will notice I do not ask for pictures and that is because I am more interested in who you are than what you look like.
What I'm Looking For
A man who is not needy, a guy who knows how to do butch things and doesnt feel bad about it. I am not overcompensating, I just dont care to talk endlessly about shit on TV that has no substance. A guy who is a prince on the street and can be a pig in the bedroom. A guy who I could take home to my mom (if she were here) and she would like, cuz I am that guy for him. Someone who likes to snuggle with the pups, prune the dogwood, and gush when a good meal is made for both of us.....
Ask Me About
Please don's start off asking me about my sexual role.
I was 'crunchy' long before you were.
Bob Mould, who is a SINGER he is also queer as hell., Richard Morel who is Bob's 'Partner',
I love this dude and his homosound....Bob Mould, huskerdu, sugar, copperblue, body of song, last dog and pony show, circle of friends...DISTRICT LINE......don't make me cry any more.....moving vans.
Ask Me About
Ask me about me, not the size of my dick, whether I am circumcised or not (it is not 'cut' or 'uncut' -- that is an absolutely disgusting question to ask someone you are not face to face with. If all you are shopping for is a fuck, this store is closed to you. I am an intelligent, hardworking sincere, funny, creative, interesting man. I can frame a house or hang an IV.
I fuckin get HARD over ICE HOCKEY.
BOB MOULD, RICH MOREL, BLOWOFF DC
TV and Film
do not ask me if I watch QAF, Queer Eye, yada....I try to fill my head with good stuff, not garbage. I do not play or like video games (maybe Wii).

Cruising on the iPhone!
During my most recent trip to Atlanta I was lucky enough to get to test a pre-release of Grindr. I think it’s the very first gay hook-up social networking app for the iPhone. Grindr uses the iPhone’s GPS capabilities to find the men closest to you. Users can chat and, with the usual iPhone camera/photo integration features, trade pics. The UI is really nice and navigation is easy. Best of all, it’s FREE! Nice job, guys!
Apple has approved the app, so now you can grab it yourself at the App Store. There are already a bunch of guys using it in Philly. The closest one is only 1,300 feet away!
I’m listening to “Raining Dub” from Blind Idiot God by Blind Idiot God.
