October 2007

For Leather Week the leather flag replaced the rainbow flag in Harvey Milk Plaza.

This bubbling cauldron was at the corner of 16th and Castro. Happy Halloween!

Go to Pushing Daisies at abc.com and watch just a few moments of any episode.. It's like nothing I've ever seen: a romantic comedy fairy tale murder mystery with perfect sets and costumes. When Ned touches dead people, they come alive. When he touches them a second time, they're dead forever. If he wakes them and doesn't touch them again within a minute, someone else dies. What they've done with these simple concepts boggles my mind. Wednesdays at 8 on ABC.

Castro Street Fair, Sunday, October 7

It was a perfect day, and crowds filled the eight blocks of the Fair. This is the corner of 18th and Castro.

Here's the kissing booth getting a lady customer.

Service with a smile.

I ran into my friend Dr, John Newmeyer and two of his friends.

Also a Cockette friend, David Faulk, known as Mrs. Vera.

Here's a behind-the-stage shot on Market at Castro.

But "Clubbing is no longer just for seals" was the highlight of the Fair for me.

Two Things to Try

Nick Swardson is a fun comic. This is his first album.

Making Money by Terry Pratchett, HarperCollins 2007, $25.95
I love Terry Pratchett for his humor and insight. He's sold 45,000,000 books. On Discworld Moist von Lipwig, former arch-swindler, is put in charge of Ankh-Morpork's Royal Mint.

What harm can it do to find out? It's a question that left bruises down the centuries, even more than "It can't hurt if I only take one" and "It's all right if you only do it standing up."

It would be hard to imagine an uglier building that hadn't won a major architectural award.

[Bank policy on currency backed by gold] "I would prefer to say that it is a tacit understanding that we will honor our promise to exchange it for a dollar's worth of gold, provided we are not, in point of fact, asked to."

"Ah, and she sees your inner self? Or perhaps the carefully constructed inner self you keep around for people to find?"

"Of course, a mistress was expected to be a woman of some accomplishment in those days." She sighed. "Now, of course, the ability to spin upside down around a pole seems to be sufficient."

"People set their watches by the arrival of the Genua Express. They used to set their calendars."

Whoever said you can't fool an honest man wasn't one.

A job for life but not for long.

His eyes had the faraway look of a man who can already see you dead.

She was always referred to as "a society beauty," which showed just how rich the Lavishes were.

Cut My Own Throat Dibbler sold pies and sausages off a tray, usually to people who were the worse for drink, who then became the worse for pies.

"They used to use arsenic to make skin whiter. That's where we get the phrase 'drop-dead gorgeous.'"

"You mean he ended up inside a fourteen-inch cube?" said Moist, horrified.

The mood would have been more precisely obtained if the tune it was playing did not appear to be "Cantata and Fugue for Someone Who Has Trouble with the Pedals."

"... because I belong to a small group of ladies who run, well, a god-of-the-month club. Er ... that is, we pick a god and believe in him ... or her, obviously, or it, although we draw the line at the ones with teeth and too many legs, er, and foreign ones, of course, and then we pray to them for a month and then we sit down and discuss it."

A smile played around Cosmo's lips, which was a dangerous playground for anything as innocent as a smile.

Trolls don't go mad, they get mad.

There's nothing a small dog likes more that a high place from which to yap madly at people.

Hubert looked like a man who had been wrestling with his conscience and got a knee in the eye.

The price of a good woman was proverbially above rubies, so a skillfully bad one was worth presumably a lot more.

My pal Bill Samios says, "Of course Dumbledore is gay. He's in love with Frodo."

Leah Garchik's column, San Francisco Chronicle, 10/26/07: Stephen Pullis told Strange de Jim that "Dumbledore's not gay. J.K. Rowling just made that up."

From the blog of a lady named Alisa:

J.K. Rowling Shocked By Response to Gay Dumbledore...  

Author J.K. Rowling is stunned by the reaction she received  
after outing popular Harry Potter character Albus Dumbdledore  
as gay. The writer revealed the truth about the Hogwarts school  
headmaster's sexuality at New York's Carnegie Hall on Friday  
as part of her American book tour. The outing of Dumbledore  
provoked more that 3,000 comments on Harry Potter fan site, The  
Leaky Cauldron and Rowling is shocked by the anger over her  
character's sexual orientation. Rowling says, "It has certainly  
never been news to me that a brave and brilliant man could love  
other men. "He is my character. He is what he is and I have the  
right to say what I say about him."

It’s about three cavemen who share an apartment: Fred, Barney, and Fabio. There were three different types of cavemen: the Cro Magnons, the Neanderthals, and, before the Neanderthals, the Baldwins."

Stephen Colbert: "Bill O'Reilly is taking a break from being frightened to death by Dumbledore's flaming wand."

Jay Leno: "Lot of candidates getting into the Halloween spirit. Today, John Edwards said he was going to get a $15 haircut and go as someone from the other America." "Even FEMA employees are celebrating Halloween. They’re all getting dressed up as reporters this year." "Turns out taking Viagra can also make you hard ... of hearing."

Dave Letterman: "The marathon is this weekend in New York City. Along the route they have those portable toilets — or as Sen. Larry Craig calls them — singles' bars." "Being a N.Y. Yankee's manager is a lot like being a Pamela Anderson husband. You know you're going to be replaced, but it's a great ride."

Conan O'Brien: "In a recent interview, Arnold Schwarzenegger said cannabis is not a drug. Of course, when Arnold said it, it sounded like, 'Cannibals need a hug.'” "A man in Europe set a world record by solving a Rubik's cube in 58 seconds using only one hand. Then he went home and celebrated, again using only one hand." Celebrity questionnaire: "I had to leave my childhood home when ... Larry King said, 'The entrance to our cave was blocked by a glacier.'"

Craig Ferguson: "Not a good day for Hillary Clinton. She was criticized by Mitt Romney. He was saying that she has no experience; he called her an intern. It’s ridiculous! If she was an intern, Bill would be sleeping with her." "My favorite horror movie? My Best Friend's Wedding."

Jimmy Kimmel: "Britney's new album is called Blackout, and it’s expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. They’re expecting it to go gold, then go platinum, then go bald."

Rob Riggle on The Daily Show: "Kids. Next to oil, they're our most valuable resource."

Dave Letterman: "Joe Torre, formerly of the New York Yankees, signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Who wouldn’t take earthquakes and wild fires over George Steinbrenner?" "Happy Halloween! I used to hate it. My mom used to dress me like a tramp—hair, makeup, the works." Guest David Spade said Hugh Heffner at the Playboy Mansion was "a little like Weekend at Bernie's."

Craig Ferguson: "Last Halloween I went as a banana. People said I looked like an overripe fruit. And that was before I put on the costume." "Last year I went to a West Hollywood party . . . the guys there really dressed up. One guy was like Judy Garland and one tiny guy was dressed as Tom Cruise. To be fair, I think it was Tom Cruise."
