Friday fragments

Remember a few weeks ago when the Pope decided to go from being a religious leader to being a public health specialist? He said 'condoms worsen the AIDS epidemic'?? Well Patrick Boivin came up with a very clever, very funny response! The tag at the end reads "Don't be stupid. Use condoms." Perhaps subliminally, I read "Don't be stupid. Don't listen to the Pope." Don't you love creative people?

Speaking of creative, not to toot my own horn, but I won Kevin's "Caption This!" contest on his blog The Lisp. Don't believe me? Click here and see it for yourself.

Amazon scandal
Did you smell the big stink over's alleged removal of gay books from its rankings? Gay romance author Mark R. Probst noticed that days ago the sales rankings disappeared from two newly-released, high profile gay romance books on The next day hundreds of GLBT books simultaneously lost their sales rankings, prompting many to wonder if Amazon was attempting to suppress the visibility of gay books. Probst learned that Amazon excludes “adult” material from appearing in some searches and best seller lists. Since these lists are generated using sales ranks, "adult" materials must also be excluded. responded that
it was a glitch and is fixing it. Life lesson: Don't mess with a queen's sh*t!!!


Just in case you haven't seen the homo-erotic Adidas ad yet, click here. I have no idea what they're selling, but I'm pretty sure I need one.

Matt Alber
My friend John sent me this video, which I fell in love with! I'm not sure why, but it just speaks to me. I've never heard of the artist, Matt Alber. His voice reminds me of Rufus Wainright and his face (after the shave) reminds me of a very young Bruce Willis. Watch/listen to this video and try NOT to be affected.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Crush du Jour: Denis Ciplenkov

That's the strangest crush pic. It looks like someone took it in his garage. It's odd that he chose to shave his pits, but not his chest.

The crush pic looks a bit scary!

This was the funnest post I have read in a long time. I actually checked out all the links. Posted a caption, switched jerseys with all the boys, and fell in love with Matt Alber...since you said he sounded like Rufus. Ahhhh Rufus.

I like the's no fun imagining sex with someone you think you could break. Grrr.

Matt Alber's album is constantly playing on my iPod. Came as a complete surprise - not usually my style. He's been getting lots of play on the blogs - he has a fan page on FB if you're so inclined. The entire album is beautiful.

Yeah, i found Matt Alber awhile back. He does sound like Rufus... but a more masculine, slightly cuter version.

So which Adidas jock did you print out your personalized poster of? I printed Liam Messam. :-)
