See Kyle Draw

The opening is next week, and the exhibit wasn't even fully erected. HAHA, so Edward and I went out to Zapistas and got drunk over red wine and Tequila. Not the best idea, but a good one none-the-less.
Another awesome artist "See Kyle Draw" one of the most engaging works of male characters, attractive to the eye and mind, with a touch of Urban class, Kyle's paintings and creations (characters and comics) will be a fun exploration for me and you. Check out his website "" - it's worth it.

National Coming Out Day.

Rewind four years, Oct. 11, 2001, Location Bradley University. I walked around the streets of that campus and along the sidewalks, chalked into the ground, were names of those gays and lesbians that were out. As I walked to my class on that early morning, I vowed that someday, it would happen, my family would love me, my friends would talk to me, and normality would set in. Flash forward, four years. Tough times, sorrows and tears, drama and joy, I'm out without worry. Should I just say I'm me, but I do tip my hat to those just now changing. I must.

Dinner Among Friends.

Reflection of Chicago.

Morning after the marathon, proved to be such a wonderful day. The "RUN AWAY BRIDE" ran with pride, brunch was packed at Angelinas, and the sun was out wishing all of us another fucked up (weather-wise) beautiful day.

Pictures from the MiniBar.

These are all pictures taken during the pre-opening night of the Mini-bar opening. Stu Zirin and John Dalton have outdone themselves, and opened a weekend early - just for us to get an idea of the bars layout and feel. Sounds and looks nice to me, doormen - to bartenders (of course first night jitters) host in a very nice welcoming way. The place is transformed from the ex-filter building, to a tan and hotel feeling which brings you into the center main bar. A round sided bar accents and a nice double mirror (with television in back) that secure the futurstic minimal feeling the designers would like. Drinks at $5 and no smoking will spark many a conversation tonight, but then again - it's only a week before opening. Rumor has it that the "no smoking" part will stay intact, allowing a smooth enterance into the gay nightlife venues. Kudos to Minibar, you've done well.

The worst.

Whats the worst? What is the worst thing that could happen? Weather. weather sucks right now. In the Chicagoland area, we have gone - in one week mind you - from the last day of summer, to a massive rainstorm, to tornados, to bright 88 degree weather, to 40 degrees and cold, damp, rainy, and nasty. the worst. and to top it all off, ran out of coffee, so I had to run to Jewel for some, and it's the hour when all the retired people come, and Jewel is changing all of their isles, slowly but surely I made my way through the crowds of oldies to get my Eight O'Clock Grind. Love it. Hate it. Living it.

Taking a cab to my friends new apartment, we passed a cross walk with an obviously faggy man walking across the street. Now, the faggoty ass faggot was then shouted at by the blazer next to him. "Love your purse man, love your purse". I laughed a little, and was really interested in who said the remarks from the silver blazer. The length of one street I knew the bastards in front of me were not infact bitter queens yelling in fag hatred, but were two white suburban yucks, who with their caps backwards and old 311 blasting, arms stretched out the window, and smurks on smugly. Nasty, what a nasty rodent the city dweller has to deal with. One of the worst expereinces to ever have, any night, is a run in with suburban backwash.

More Pictures

Driving Helen to protective custody Spencer.

We drove and drove. Location: 27th and California. People: Me and Jayne. Why: Visitation for Spencer. After the hour long ride - we make it to the jailhouse, where we go through the process of visitation. Going through frisk after frisk, and waiting in line for a metal detector that blows you six times. after that - you travel through a small area that isn't quite protected, but you arrive at a building with many people waiting for their loved ones. "He's in PC, his visitation day is Sunday, come back on Sunday." No arguing with the lady named "Lee", and we leave, with no hellos, goodbyes, or acknowledgements that we ever were there. Poor Spencer. Just sitting there 23 hours a day, resting and waiting to get out. Know what you have people, freedom, and do nothing to take that freedom away. Spencer, You'll see the light soon, Until now, it's next Sunday.

Night During Day.

Taken during the 20 minutes when a Tornado Warning was brodcast through the Chicagoland area, note: the walls are actually white, the tint of green comes from the bed and the sky. Nice tones and color huh? I thought so.
