I’m coming out, so you better get this party started! I just can’t seem to get Shirley Bassey’s campy remake of Pink!’s hit song out of my head. Have you seen it yet? Our lovely […]


  1. OMG that banana jerk is from the Showtime show WEEDS the second season I saw that and almost had an effing heart attack laughing. But I got one of my friends to try it and he had an allergic reaction, he didn’t know he was allergic…. With Hilarious Results.

    I agree with Sarah. SAL-E looks fierce. Especially in that photo above. I probably would have done the same as her and kept talking into the camera. SAL-E is incredible and fabulous.
    I would love one of those iced teas, too. Down South we love our iced teas especially if it has a sweet zing to it.

  3. I listened to the BBC Radio 4 interview mentioned in the podcast, and I don’t agree that Gloria Gaynor is making a turn against homosexuality. She did stick to the statement that she is trying to lead all of her listeners (gays included) to the “…Christ…and whatever he has for them.” That could be practically anything, including a sense of self-love and complete acceptance of one’s identity as a gay person.


    For me, the love of Christ is:

    Inclusive-he ate with people considered the worst of the worst in society, which was considered a taboo in his time.
    Unconditional-he taught and healed anybody who came to him.
    Flexible and Adaptive-When called on a prejudice, he expanded his mind to include that person as one worthy of love.
    Simple-he taught that to love is all that matters, and everything else hinges on that.


    I heard all of this in Gloria Gaynor’s speech, so I don’t think that she is condemning gays, a la Donna Summer. Let’s not jump to hasty conclusions.

    Here is the link to the original interview segment. I encourage everybody to listen and decide for themselves:

    (You will need Real Player to hear the segment).

    so gloria gaynor was to be a pied piper for the gays? hilarious.

  5. I listened to the interview, and I don’t agree that Gloria Gaynor is making an anti-gay sentiment. She simply said she wants to lead gays to “…Christ, and whatever He has for them…” That could be a sense of self-love and a healing experience that we all need at times. It could also be a call to love each other more than we typically have. I invite everybody to listen to the original interview with an open heart and mind and decide for themselves. Here’s the link:

  6. I don’t believe that she is being anti-gay, but here is the link to the interview. Listen and decide for yourself:

  7. I don’t believe she is being anti-gay, but I invite everybody to listen to the interview and decide for themselves:

  8. I listened to the interview more than once, and I don’t agree that she is making an anti-gay statement. Here’s the link to the original show; listen and decide for yourselves:

    Best ice cream flavor ever: Licorice ice cream. Available at the unnamed ice cream parlor that was not named on today’s show. 😉

    Okay, I’m a little slow, but I just figured out where to click to buy the “Best of FOF” DVD. Yay! We’ll listen to it on our way to Toronto later this summer, on our honeymoon redux. We listened to FOF on our original honeymoon trip, so I thought it was only fitting…

  10. I recently came across an interesting new flavor of store bought ice cream: Fried Ice Cream. It’s available from a national brand which shall remain nameless, but whose name rhymes with “wire” and which showed at least a smidgen of gay friendliness by having Bernadette Peters do commercials for it several years ago. The ice cream is cinnamon and caramel flavored with caramel swirled in and bits of cinnamon tostada pieces. Tthe tostadas need some work, as they come out tasting like cardboard, but the rest of the ice cream is good. Not as good as fried ice cream served at your friendly local Mexican restaurant by a Latino hunk, but still good nonetheless.

  11. Tyto Alba says:

    mmmm I love licorice

  12. Maia says:

    You would love it — It’s amazing. I’m having a mild mental breakdown right now, just thinking about it…

  13. Cliff Dix says:

    You can whisper the name of the ice cream place to me. I am going to Chicago in 2 weeks and would love some licorice ice cream.

  14. Maia says:

    Okay, if you are not Cliff, you MAY NOT read any further!
    I caught you! Cut it out!
    Okay, Cliff, here you go:
    Unfortunately, they don’t always have the licorice…
    But you are guaranteed to find something finger-lickin’ good!

  15. Cliff Dix says:

    Thanks Maia. I’ll get an extra scoop in your honor.

  16. RcktMan says:

    Cliff, if you’re coming to Chicago, you’d better be contacting all of us!

    I propose a mini Meet ‘n Greet!

    Mmmmm… Sweet Occassions… Mmmmm!!!!

  17. Maia says:

    Cliff, when are you going to be in town? I’m afraid it’s the same time Kate and I are heading out for upstate NY & then Canada… But if not, let’s do ice cream! I would love to get together with you guys.

  18. Cliff Dix says:

    My partner, Glen is attending a Keyboard Pedagogy Conference in Oak Brook August 2-4. But we are coming up a few days early on the 30th and spending Monday-Wednesday in Chicago. Actually I think we are close to Sweet Occasions. Well, maybe 10 blocks away. But I definitely want to try it. I would love to meet you guys there. I’ve never met a fellow FOFer that I hadn’t converted in the first place.
