My sister may have had a child but I still refuse to be interested in people sharing about their flesh turd.
I think I like being "mean" to my sister when she shares about her child more then I like being "mean" to anyone else. Of course my sister knows Im kidding BUT IM ALSO TOTALLY NOT. Im not buying that kid one thing till its five at least, six was just to push the point home. "Poppa" is what we called my grandfather who lived through the depression and was famously old school New York and far from a spendthrift. He once yelled at me as a child when I purchased a rainbow snowcone for about .85 cents and exclaimed "YOU'LL BUY ANYTHING! THATS JUST ICE!!!"

In 2008 I wrote a very long comment on here and never posted it on "masculinity".. Reading it again I realize it holds up but now I would stress the importance of recognizing the performance of it but also enjoying it and somehow enjoying it makes it more "real"
This is the comment: There is no such thing as "real" masculinity. The word itself is just a cultural concept, its not a fact. So if youre wrapped up in that youre kidding yourself. A women could be into all that exact same stuff and she wouldnt be called naturally masculine, she be called bull dyke full of tryory. I think its a really a bit naive to say one thing is "naturally" masculine. I feel security is "masculine". Guys hung up on being "masculine" are usually HUGE TERRIFIED PUSSIES. Ive dated some and they fall apart at the seams when you call them "gurl", they cant handle it, THAT to me is NOT masculine. I dated this dude who was SO hung up on being "masculine" He looked "masculine" and acted "masculine" and when you went to his house he had CATS and LAVENDER WALLS. Ugh he was sooo fucked up that I HAD to rip him apart about the subject, I almost made him cry...TOTAL PUSSY. I mean I know im a total castrating and vicious CUNT but dont come for me about the "masculinity" stuff. Ive experienced it first hand and know EXACTLY what its all about. MY DAD was a General with the Pinkertons, smoked cigars, played sports, drank a pitcher of beer and two whiskey sours for dinner ( yet I never saw him drunk), hunted, took me to GIANTS and YANKEE games (SNORE), all that cliche bullshit, but knowing the guy I just came to learn he was a TERRIFIED TOTAL PUSSY. All that shit may have been "natural" to him but the "masculinity" adage is a TOTAL put on. My MOTHER was "feminine", tall, and pretty and had balls about 500x bigger than my dad, wasnt a terrified person and actually stood up to people if she felt someone was "coming for her". There was nothing "naturally masculine" about her but she was so much more of a STUD then my dad who on paper was "hyper masculine". Which is sorta a large portion of why I am who I am today I can see the importance of the "look" but also know how that is NOT REAL, and what it takes is NERVE to be powerful which in essence is "natural masculinity". SECURITY is masculine if you have the BALLS to be different , THAT is masculine to me because that takes COURAGE and NERVE. Thats why I like all these kooky type straight guys , oddball women, and fierce gays, because they have the nerve to be themselves which essentially in my mind is what is "masculine" . They have BALLS basically. I find that your concept of "naturally masculine" often just means terrified and confused. Im mean sure they put up a good front and I have to say its sexy for like a date, but you see right through it after about twenty minutes and just see them as a silly and desperate hoax. I mean if a guy was "naturally masculine" and had the balls to be interested in something transgressive, wear a grace jones t shirt, or even just say "hey gurl" as kind of a joke then I think its great but its never happened just because like I said from the very start "masculinity" is a put on like everything else, just because theres a lot of advertising that backs it up doesnt mean its "real", it just means they know they have wildly insecure and terrified customer who needs to conform to preconceived and regiments behavior. The reason why I think you DONT see it is because people who actually are powerful, "masculine" and have BALLS can see through that masculinity hoax so they DONT NEED TO DO IT, its not that they CANT do it, YES some simply CANT do it. It just like being a femme queen you obviously need the right "look" but I mean people with actual balls arent insecure so they dont need to put up the front of "naturally masculine" . I for example find it sexy so I like doing it. I actually LIKE looking like a dude but mixing it up by either wearing something a little faggoty like a samantha fox t-shirt or talking openly in public about GAY SEX or simply being comfortable embracing a faggoty moment in public if I want to. I can only do this because Ive become more secure as Ive gotten older and realize "oh shit I actually can be a dude AND a Full Queen if I want" because Im secure and THAT takes balls. Im 6 4 and now 222 and could probably beat 95% of straight men in an arm wrestling match so Ive learned that nobody is debating if im masculine (this btw is a new concept because for YEARS, up until about 2 years ago, I just saw myself as the awkward walking candy apple head I was when I was a kid. thank god my bf helped get it through my head that im actually a big dude) so I feel I almost have to counter it be being openly faggoty because I dont wanna come off like one of those "naturally masculine" dude who are pussies. Yes I turn the levels up and down depending on the situation and what Im going after at the moment but I think that being able to shift is really important. To me it shows ability to "pass" in either sector which to me is a sign of security and thus "masculine" . My friend gave me a great compliment once it its really meant A LOT to me he said "David You are a FIERCE dIchotomy of dude and full queen." I was so honored I felt like I really achieved something that is super important which is personal security, honesty, and a "real" identity. Dont get me wrong I am WILDLY INSECURE but just hearing that made a big difference to me and helped me realize that what Ive been working for for all my life has paid off. Its not easy being a both AT ALL , because what ends up happening is most of either of the two groups are TOTALLY THREATENED by you and they dont like you, but also Ive found that the people that DO get you ARE the SECURE ones who you want to meet in the first place. So honesty is the best policy I guess here . If you feel youre being totally honest in your "natural masculinity" then great go for it, sounds totally hot, but youd be the first one ive ever met in my life. Even the most "masculine" guy gets a little faggoty at some point. I think David Lee Roth is a great example of natural masculinity. Friendly, smiling, works as an EMT but also not afraid to wear spandex , do high kicks and pout to the camera, the dude has BALLS. I think all of my "fierce straight men of the day" are great example of what a "naturally masculine" dude is....

Im conducting an experiment with my brain and sex drive... This is nothing new.. but its a new experiment.
I decided Im going to see what its like to not have sexually stimulating images in my face all day. I subscribed to about 8 different tumblrs that are very specifically honed into my sexual interests. So every day multiple times a day Im being inundated with hot hairy buttholes basically so i wanna see what its like NOT to be constantly stimulated by this. It might be interesting, there might be no change.. we shall see. Im thinking Ill be more focused with interpersonal relationships and creative. Who knows though maybe Ill be less creative. Salvador Dali said creativity comes from the testicles which is why woman arent creative. Which for the most part theyre not at all. Which is another reason why I like trannies more, the visuals of a woman but the mind of a man. Dali made Amanda Lear after all. She was his living art in a way. He paid for her sex change in Morocco. The outcome was perfection! Update, its only a few hours later and I can tell you how this experiment is going....I HAVE MORE TIME ON MY HANDS.

Ok so OF COURSE Im excited about the new trailer. In fact I got goosebumps watching and loved the "fear me" concept of it because of course I can relate to it as a gay because its sort of the same feeling I had as a kid, and I imagine many other gays did as well, of "If you see the real me you are not going to like it" compacted with the WISH that you could be powerful because of course as a baby gay you are anything but and are a totally outnumbered outsider so the fantasy of being an uber powerful witch is VERY appealing and you can relate in a wishful fashion. I mean the girl quite literally asks her to "come out", which of course she does to the terror of all, which is why we love her. She looks great but SO HELP ME GOD IF THEY DONT MAKE HER TALL I will be the one conjuring green flames at the premiere! Visually I REALLY HOPE its not all goopey over saturated CGI like the shitty and empty Alice in Wonderland movie, which it looks like it could be. I would be really surprised if they didnt do any art direction or styling with the CGI though but who knows maybe they wont. For example why is the light source that we see in every shot WHITE LIGHT?! Thats just WRONG, it needs to have some kind of color to it. Sleeping Beauty is SO INCREDIBLY stylized and beautifully so and this trailer is not at all, this is sort of a shame and a missed opportunity for Disney to regain some artistic "street creds" and earn back the respect they used to have for being true artists. MAYBE HOPEFULLY they can do something between now and MAY to tone down the garishness of what were seeing here and add some art direction that reigns in the limitless spectrum, and overly bright lighting, theyre currently showing and give the film some STYLE other then "LOTS OF CGI AND SATURATION" which in my book is not a style at all but actually the LACK of styling and art direction which is just really crappy image making. Did I ever give my mantra for good design/styling? Its easy... Limit, relate, repeat. I learned it from an old queen. The almost NAGEL-esque direction of this poster I totally appreciate as well as the sting-ray skin on the fore-head. p.s I thought more about it and this is what I thought: Disney is responsible for a lot of the most incredible art direction ever but that was mostly in animation a field that was mastered in the 30's. Now with "new" cgi I think the art form is so new they havent learned how to make "art" with it yet. I think its the fact that these CGI artists are trained to make things as "real" as possible and not to make "art" which is the NEXT step. They havent even mastered getting it "real" yet before they can make it artistic. I know many can, but theyre (or the studios) still more concerned with realness over manipulation of that realness to create fantasy. They still just want to make a unicorn look PASSABLE. They sorta havent learned that to make something more real you have to stylize it so that it can become a fantasy just like in our mind, and thats what makes something of fantasy have power and seem fantastic. Making it "real" makes it well...like this.

I love One Kings Lane, I have bought a few carpets and other Objects d'art from there before. Its mostly LADY STUFF but once in a while you find something cool. This is the second time this object has come up and Ive been tempted to buy it because I happen to have a gold Skeletor and this "mid century african tiger" - ALL OF THAT MAKES NO SENSE BTW- is just a cast made from Panthor, Skeletors pet or Battle cat, He-mans Pet (They were the same mold just different colors) cast in brass. I may be OLD but Im not THAT OLD and I wouldnt call 1985 MID CENTURY. Furthermore there are no tigers in Africa, Tigers are ASIAN. Please remember this for your lives. It makes me bonkers when people say AFRICAN TIGER. Its like saying AFRICAN MOOSE. So dear One Kings Lane, please recognize that this is just some crappy mold that someone in India made from a toy in 1985, which I totally appreciate but not for 150$, and that there is no such thing as an African Tiger. - Battlecat, as you can see the exact same mold.

I really did like the teal bedroom that was very Northern Mystic themed but I needed a change. So now the color story is grey with a deep purple accent wall, grey curtains, a grey fox fur carpet, grey snakeskin bedding with purple sheets. The visual concept is the struggle between Batman and the Joker which is any modern mans struggle actually. I was happy about the pillow, it perfectly captured the Jokers look from the movie in 99, and the black leatherette stuff, taxidermy and museum piece stuff feels very Wayne Manor to me. I would do really well with millions of dollars and a big house. Id make very cool spaces if I do say so myself. I think the next round it will be red orange with the grey carpets but thats in a couple years when im bored of this one. Heres a pic of the old room.

Without giving too much away here is a sneak peek at a scene from the upcoming holiday commercial. It is based on the three gifts of the Wise Men, gold, frankincense, and myrrh in concept but of course weve abstracted that and did it in my style which will hopefully be beautiful, interesting, creative, funny, weird, and sexy. Which is a lot to ask for but were hopefully delivering a lot for you. I really hope you like it!
