My People Shame Me, Make Me Giggle.

Greeks from the island of Lesbos take gay rights group to court over use of term 'Lesbian'.

Greek people being somehow anti-gay/displeased with being associated with gayness is, like, the height of irony. They didn't call it "the unspeakable vice of the Greeks" for nothing! But come on, how can you not LAWLZ at this quote:

"My sister can't say she is a Lesbian," said Dimitris Lambrou. "Our geographical designation has been usurped by certain ladies who have no connection whatsoever with Lesbos," he said."

Thanks to Shane for the link!


Apparently this slab of man meat is walking around our building today as he is here for a test shoot for our upcoming gay bondage site.

Tober Brandt is his name.

Nice to know that our new website director has some decent taste in men.

Ye Olde Ex-Boyfriends, Pt. 1

Colin gave me some DVDs of olde, olde show footage of us when we were just a wee band of 1 or 2 years old. I am ripping and uploading some more but, for now, enjoy these!

Ex-Boyfriends: "Relationship" live @ Hemlock Tavern

We think this is from 2005 but we're not entirely sure. It was back when Chriso still had facial hair, Peter still had shaggy hair and Colin had, well, the same hair he has always had. Never change Colin! This song is off of our first album, Dear John. Video by John Goldie. Coincidence??

Ex-Boyfriends: "It's Not Me, It's You" live @ Hemlock Tavern

This is another song from that Maybe It Was in 2005 Show. The song title is pretty self-explanatory: it's another one of Colin's songs about how much he loves love and the loving feelings of loveliness. This song was also used in the background scene on the HBO show Big Love. This has yet to make us rich or famous, which we find somewhat troubling. Thanks for nothing, fake Mormons! This song is also off of Dear John.

Jack Shamama Speaks the Gospel Truth


Grey Gardens 2: Electric Boogaloo

I am pretty positive that I met the reincarnation of Big Edie Beale this morning. I was walking to work as usual, trucking on down Church towards Market with music blasting in my headphones when I saw this older white woman with long, silvery-gray, disheveled hair wearing a black, strapless, calf-length dress made of some kind of modern, sporty looking micro-fabric that threatened to slide directly off her bosom as it was weighed down by the strap of a bright red mini-messenger bag. I noticed her reaching her arm out towards me andto show no signs of continuing it's forward motion that we'd both be victim moving her mouth as I walked by so I pulled out one of my ear buds to hear what she had to say, bracing myself for my usual response of about not having any cash on me.

"Can you help me across the tracks," she asked, continuing to reach for my arm. I looked right and saw the N Judah train creeping out of the tunnel towards the intersection we stood at.

"Sure. But do you want to wait until the train passes?" But she already had taken hold of my forearm and began moving towards the criss-cross of metal tracks in front of us, guitars, drums and howling vocals providing a totally inappropriate soundtrack in my right ear. We ambled slowly across the street and I was surprised at how strong her grip was. I looked down at her cracked and dry, flip-flop clad feet and then up at her sun-tanned face and little hairs sticking out above her upper lip and really felt like I was looking into the face of Edie Beale. Albeit a quieter, slightly less eccentric version of her. I worried as the train seemed s of another Municide. But the driver began slowing down so I didn't have to worry about how I would grab and drag this sizable woman and bring her to safety if he had not.

We reached the opposite curb and I asked her if she wanted me to keep walking her to the bus stop. She simply let go of my arm and mumbled "thank you", looking away to rummage in her bag. I popped my left ear bud back in and continued my brisk pace to work, hoping I might see her again on my usual route and maybe get the courage to ask if I could take her picture.

Why I rule:
I organized the shelves full of bowls, plates, coffee cups, plastic tumblers and utensils in the employee lounge and labeled the shelves in both English and Spanish so the cleaning crew can read them with ease.

Why I suck:
I failed to realize that my new favorite chip contains non-fat milk solids. Hello flaming shits of death!!

Three Things That Need to Stop Happening on the Internet

1) Posting a link to the video of that dude trapped in the elevator. It's not like he's hot and decided to jerk off so who fucking cares?

2) Gay men making online profiles and using the phrases "I don't bite...hard" or "I don't bite...unless you want me to" or any variation on that horrible theme. You should be denied all gay sex for the rest of your life for continuing to beat that dead horse.

3) Setting your Flickr to auto-blog every. photo. you. take. I've complained about this before but here I am again. Odds are you're not as great a photographer as you think you are and no one really wants to see a blurry picture of your left sneaker posted on your blog when they can already see it on Flickr.

Thank you, plz comply!

Vacation, All I Ever Wanted

ATTN: Everyone at my workplace who is going on a lovely vacation to somewhere warm and gorgeous and fun and new and NOT HERE IN SF needs to shut up and/or die right now before I stabby-stab you in the face with jealous rage. I haven't been on vacation in SO long. And this year my vacation = touring with my band. Which I love. But I haven't gone anywhere to just relax and explore and have fun in forevs. And it's not so much financially in the cards any time soon. DAMN U ROCKNROLL!!

Half Days Make Me Spazz the Fuck Out

I'm taking a half day today to hang out with a friend of mine who is in town for a conference and only has this afternoon free before he flies out. So I love half days cuz, hello, less time at work. But it basically means I crammed 8 hours into 4 and I feel like a total spazz. Anyways! Time to go eat tacos and buy comics!

Mountain Battles

Mountain Battles 02
Originally uploaded by ohnochriso
Last night I bought a copy of Mountain Battles, the new album by The Breeders, on vinyl. Much to my delight it came with a code for downloading the entire album in MP3 form so I can basically have my cake and listen to it on my iPod as well!

The album is pretty damn fantastic. I've been a Breeders fan since Pod (still their best album if you ask me) and I've enjoyed most of their releases but was kind of disappointed when Title TK dropped after a zillion years and it was pretty mediocre. Mountain Battles has some sonic similarities in the sense that some of it sounds like it was recorded in Kim Deal's bedroom - possibly in her closet or under her bed. There's a very hushed, intimate tone to some of the songs while others are bristling with noises and echoes and weird blips and guitar parts that somehow all fit together perfectly. Kim Deal has always had this weird, unexpected sexiness to a lot of her songs and that same quality is definitely in effect on this record. And I love it.

I am now more excited than ever to see them at the end of this month! And I really hope they play a bunch of stuff from Pod like they did on their last tour.


I wonder how long this site will be allowed to exist what with the proprietary nature of the music industry. But I'm loving it for now!

The Meme Marches On

From my good friend Ron:

Your turn!! How will you "I (misspelled verb) U CAKE"??

Monday, April 07, 2008


To this photo by Curtis. And this post by Donny.


I think a lot of people move to San Francisco so they can live out their extreme social retardation under the guise of being "quirky" or "flaky".

Obviously, not safe for work. But SO safe for boners!

Must. Not. Touch. Self. At. Work.

P.S. Yes, that is two posts in one day about hot dudes. Shut up!

Super Ultra Wonder Fantastic

Anyone who has read this blog for even three seconds knows I love super hero comics books a wee bit too much. I always have since I was a kid and I've always been fascinated with the idea of super heroes and super powers. From mutants born with their abilities to heroes who gain them in a freak accident to an Amazon warrior imbued with them by the gods of her pantheon, I've always had daydreams and actual dreams of leading a super-powered life. And I know I'm not the only one.

So my question, dear readers, is this:

If you could have any super power, what would it be?

Answer in the comments!
