The Jeannie Tate Show

This is a short video starring a friend of mine from Second City, Liz Cackoswki. Liz and toured together for over a year. The video is wonderfully funny and delightful. Just like Liz.

It Never Rains In Southern California
I am so close to finding an apartment. It could be as soon as the end of this week. I found a potential roommate that already has a great place with beautiful furnishings. He and I got along well. I like him and he seems to enjoy me. I just have to get past two more interviews. One with the manager of his building and one with the owner of the building. It seems weird to me that I would even have to jump through these hoops since the tenant is the one subleasing the room but if it gets me four walls to call my own, I am completely game.

I went to a fun party last night at Chiz and Higgypiggy's place. It was a twisted V-Day party. I hate Valentine's Day so this was right up my alley. It was nice to be out and hanging with friends and I met some new people last night too. Of course, there were no brothahs or sistahs there but fun was had by all.

When the party ended, I rebuffed at least two offers for a ride home. My temporary couch was too far out of the way and I didn't want to be the "handicapped friend" without the car. I was walking distance from a bus stop that would take me four blocks from where I was staying. I insisted on walking to the bus stop and waiting for the bus. Little did I know that I would have to wait 90 minutes for the bus (not kidding). In the rain. And the cold. In fairness, I should say that it was Southern California cold and not Midwest cold. I wouldn't have been able to take that for an hour and a half.

The upside of my late night bus ride through Hollywood was when I spotted this famous singer. Earlier yesterday, I saw this singer downtown.

I Love the 80s
The 80's truly are back. The Bears are in the Super Bowl and now David Lee Roth is re-joining Van Halen.

Our What The F*ck story of the day comes from Surprise, AZ where a 29 year old pedaphile posed as a 12 year old 7th grader for four months last year. He was arrested two weeks ago, a day after trying to register as a 12 year old 7th grader at another school.

What Is Wrong With US?
I haven't done an WIWWUS installment in a while but I have to question what is happening in our country regarding civil liberties. When South Africa allowed gay marriage, I was shocked. This is a country that once caused me to picket and boycott companies. Because of South Africa's egregious lack of basic human rights toward blacks I didn't drink Coca-Cola for years. Now, Israel is stepping up to do the right thing. Israel? The Middle East? One of the most conservative regions in the world is making us look bad.

We need to get it together America. I know the religious right believes that they are saving us from a wrathful God that hates fags but I got news for Jerry Falwell. Jesus was born and raised in Israel. And he never really hung out with religious people, zealots he called them. He hung out with outcasts and at least one known prostitute.

He would have never hung out with the religious right because while they follow his number one command, "Love the Lord thy God." They fail to follow rule number two, "Love thy neighbor as thy self." If marriage is good enough for you, it's good enough for me, neighbor.
Missed Connection -m4m
I have been scanning Craigslist for the last three months trying to figure out my housing and employment situation in LA. I found a job via my little brother but the housing has been an unresolved issue. I will continue to scour the many ads of Craigslist including the personals because they always give me a giggle. This one made me giggle and then made me wish I wasn't single. As you can see, the dating pool in LA is pretty shallow.
