GOOD LORD!

R.I.P. SYLVIA ROBINSON!



Very sorry to hear of Sylvia Robinson's passing. Though some might consider her to be a one-hit wonder, when your one hit happens to be one of the sexiest songs ever recorded I think that's OK. Check out these groovy threads! For a minute in the 70's, it was all about Sylvia.

She founded Sugar Hill Records with the first breakout rap hit but she also rapped herself--this rarity used to drive us nuts at the Pyramid Club.

BRAVO, YOU CREATED A MONSTER!



Patti Stanger of Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker fame is one of the most loathsome TV personalities ever. So naturally, it's fun to see her get in trouble. And Bravo can't gripe if they hoist this bitch on the nation and then it bites the hand that feed it. I'm less offended by her statements than the notion that this dog has the nerve to offer anyone advice. And she's the perfect example of why not everyone looks better in straightened hair--her ugly mug juts out from her straightened hair and looks harsher as a result. A curl or wave might soften her mug. Sorry, but I despise her and this show. At least Dolly Levi sang and danced!

FROM HUFFPO:

Following the matchmaker's probing, one caller admitted he's homosexual, to which Stanger responded, "There is no curbing the gay," asserting that they're not interested in monogamy. Host Andy Cohen, who is gay, was visibly uncomfortable with Stanger's wisecrack. She proceeded to dig her hole even deeper by making inflammatory observations about tribal dating culture, as well. Referring to Jewish men later in the show, Stanger claimed, "They lie." Cohen is not only gay and Jewish; he is also Bravo's Executive VP of Original Programming and Development (i.e. Stanger's boss). "So I am a non-monogamous liar," he concluded on air.

STARBUCKS COFFEE CAUSES CANCER?

(Sorry this pic is so blurry, but they don't like photographs.)



I noticed this sign in a San Fran Starbucks claiming that their coffee contains cancer-causing agents. The barrista explained that it had something to do with the ceramics it was roasted in and that it was trace amounts. In her early 20's with piercings, I doubt that the counter girl represents the man. She went onto say that CA had very strange laws and gave the example of a burglar who tripped over a rug while exiting and successfully sued the homeowner he was trying to rip off.

But the mega-chain is forced to post signs in every CA store, there must be something to it. Is this unique to Starbucks or do other coffee chains roast their coffee in a different, healthier way? As I put an Equal in my coffee, clearly I wasn't too concerned about it. But I do drink their coffee every day. Makes you wonder...

THE REVOLUTION WILL BARELY BE TELEVISED

Police are not allowing amplification at the Wall St. protests. Law officers paid to protect us are literally silencing the voice of the people. And you want hear much about it on the news because our news is owned by big biz. Sick! The opposite of democracy and the beginning of a police state. Didn't Obama just allot some monies for riot cops? We have no $ for the sick, poor, unemployed, vets or schools. But there's no shortage of ways to silence us.





Since the police are not allowing amplification, the speakers are taking a sentence and then everyone gathered around repeats the words. They haven't found a permit to take away THAT voice yet.

BUN-BUN ON THE COVER OF ODYSSEY NYC THIS WEEK!

I posed with some of Escuelita's resident hunks who'll serve as cocktail waiters at my upcoming show, That Ain't No Lady! at Esco every Tuesday night in October. I must apologize because my wig is blocking the view of one of the most bulging package of meat imaginable. Oh well! The "interview" I conducted with myself about the show is below.



MUST-SEE TV: Lady Bunny in THAT AIN'T NO LADY!

I regularly write a column for Odyssey. But if you can remove your eyes from the crotches of the Escuelita hunks for long enough, you'll notice that I'm also gracing the cover of this issue. So the editor asked me to write up my new show That Ain't No Lady! every Tuesday in October. It's been a decade since my last full-length night club act--so why now?

First off, I need the money! When I hit 29 last year, my modeling jobs vanished overnight. I can't run for political office until I'm 35. And it's tough holding onto your escort clients when you're known to have bed bugs. The effective, citywide anti-meth campaigns have virtually shut down my side gig as a drug dealer, especially after regular clients like Kevin Aviance and Jackie Beat skipped town. Whoops! I'm supposed to be pretending that Jackie's dramatic weight loss was the result of some surgery. Since Sarah Jessica Parker, Cameron Diaz, The Olsen Sins and Baked Apple Paltrow moved into my Greenwich Village neighborhood, grocery prices have sky-rocketed. So I'm literally going to have to start singing for my supper. And as you can see, I hate to miss a meal.

For years, I've been the only white queen who’s regularly worked at Esco's. Since it mainly caters to a black and latino crowd, not everyone's aware that the space has the perfect stage for a sizzling night club revue. The roomy stage is ideal for dancing--on the off chance that I should learn how to dance by 10/4.They've also put in new cabaret seating with tables and which all have good sight lines. I learned of the new seating when I visited Hunk-o-mania, a strip show for females several nights a week. But don't worry--I don't plan on stripping, even though that would be so a hilarious that it'd be worth my weight in gold--or at least the price of admission. Speaking of which…

I've been to a few shows lately with a $25 cover and a 2 drink minimum. By the time you take a cab and pay tax and tip, you've spent $60 for a drag show. This recession isn’t improving, so I'm charging a price that's as cheap as my humor--$14.98--with only a 1-drink minimum. However, since my singing has been known to drive people to drink, there will be a strictly-enforced 25 drink maximum. And since Escuelita's waiters put the cock back into cocktail, and I know I'd surely order a second round if my waiter was young, hung, next to naked and enjoyed getting groped for a generous tip. And since they're uncut, do try Esco's selection of vino--nothing goes better with wine than a fragrant cheese!

LOOK WHO I GET TO SHARE A DRESSING ROOM WITH!



This fall, I'll have performed at gay pride events from Hawaii to Atlanta, so I must be doing something right. I’m always hearing about the need to celebrate diversity. OK, well I happen to represent the trashy and fun-loving segment of our community who loves raunchy, un-PC humor. I love performing my act in clubs, but this show is a more of a full-length theatrical venture. Of course, I'll do some of my classics, but I've updated my act with new pop parodies from Cee Lo to Ke$ha to and a very climactic Firework by Katy Perry. My new Laugh-In style joke skit rips on everyone from Beyonce to Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. A spoof of Cher (aka Scare) in Burlesque (aka Grotesque) is not to be missed. And there's a timely if tasteless tribute to Amy Winehouse which just had them howling recently at San Fran's Folsom Street Fair. Since my act is full of parodies of current hits and other pop culture references, it's perfect for the younger gays who don't want to snore through the sappy show tunes and self-indulgent monologues typical of cabaret.

Some of my fans from Wigstock days are older now and aren't going out to clubs or likely to wait until 1AM to see a drag show, so the 8PM slot is perfect on a work night. And one thing I hear a lot is that people over 30 don't go out now because they hate the music. To remedy that, immediately after the show I'll spin a classic set of music that people miss: Whitney, Deee-Lite, Crystal Waters--the sound of NYC from the days of the Roxy when entire dance floors sang along to anthems like Peace In The Valley and Pride (A Deeper Love). Drink prices will drop to 2-4-1 for the hour after the show to loosen up some of those backbones that need it. So let's see if this group who complains about contemporary music--and trust me, I'm one of you--will dance when they do finally hear music they like. At any rate, $14.98 and 1 drink minimum is a recessionista-friendly deal to see a performer who Time Out called a "demented, delightful and hilarious queen" as I brings a little trash back to the Disney-fied Times Square area. It’s the chinese Year of the Rabbit so it’s the perfect time to catch me in That Ain't No Lady! At my age, if I wait another decade to do another next one wo-man show, I may not be alive!

Tuesdays in October at 8PM at Escuelita 301 W. 39 St between 8th and 9th Aves. Seating is limited so reservations are strongly suggested. Cash only at the door or purchase online tickets at .

UPDATE: Apparently, this is a hoax perpetrated by the Yes Men. Below is taken from thier wikipedia entry.

The Yes Men often deploy a satirical approach: they pose as a powerful entity (typically a corporate or government representative or executive) and make ridiculous and shocking comments that caricature the ideological position of the organisation or person. Furthermore, they acknowledge the idea that many corporate or government entities manipulate their ideology using spin; in response, the Yes Men use this power of spin to their own advantage, and use media outlets to disseminate their personal interpretation of the situation. A sense of humor and shock value is usually employed to make these issues more palatable to the general public and to call greater media attention to stories of interest.[1] Some of these outrageous ideas include the possibility to sell one's vote or that the poor should consume recycled human waste. On most occasions, little to no shock or outrage is publicly evoked in response to their prank.

On occasion, the Yes Men's phony spokesperson will make announcements that represent fictitious scenarios for the anti-globalization movement or opponents of corporate crime.

ANOTHER TAKE ON IT:

Trader Tells BBC That Greek Default is a Done Deal; Will Anyone Listen?

As of Tuesday morning this clip has been viewed nearly half a million times on YouTube. There’s been a lot of noise in the press and the blogosphere that Rastani was either pulling a prank or is the ultimate Chicken Little. His talk of Goldman Sachs (GS) ruling the world and “dreaming of a recession” makes it easy to take pot shots at him, but can anyone refute his core point?

The markets right now are ruled by fear. The big money and the smart money — I’m talking about the big funds, the hedge funds, the institutions — they don’t buy this rescue plan. They know the market is toast. They know the stock market is finished. As far as the euro is concerned they don’t care. They’re moving their money away to safer assets.

That’s exactly what has been going on. You can dispute everything else he says, but not this. While Rastani sees a crash as a money-making opportunity, it is also very clear he wants to warn people.

This economic crisis is like a cancer, if you just wait and wait hoping it is going to go away, just like a cancer it is going to grow and it will be too late!

WISDOM FROM THE WEB (AUTHOR UNKNOWN)

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who
has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was,
since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He
will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
Knowing when to come in out of the rain; Why the early bird gets the
... worm; Life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend
more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are
in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but
overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy
charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended
from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for
reprimanding an unruly student only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers, for doing the
job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly
children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental
consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a student; but could
not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an
abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses;
and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a
burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to
realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in
her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by
his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility and by his son
Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;
I Know My Rights
I Want It Now
Someone Else Is To Blame
I'm A Victim

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If
you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do
nothing.

A VERY GOOD POINT

LEAVE IT TO PIERS...



When gay mags interview straight stars, they often ask things like "Have you ever had gay sex?" I've never understood this and it seems to only happen in gay press. I can't imagine being interviewed by a straight mag which asked me "Didn't you ever want some pussy?" Until now--last night I saw CNN's Piers Morgan ask Alan Cumming if he would ditch his male lover if he met the right woman. PITIFUL! I was never a Larry King fan but Piers makes me miss him!

BRISTOL AND THE BULL

As much as I love that someone yelled after Bristol Palin rode a mechanical bull "Did you ride Levi like that? Your mother's a whore!", I have to admit that Bristol handled this very smoothly. (Maybe because of the camera crew?) And the guy should have been ready with some reasons why her mom's the devil. There are sooooooo many to choose from. But I applaud his sentiment.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GOOGLE YOURSELF!

Though I don't think I'm the inspiration for this, it kinda fits!

An excerpt:

Lady Bunny skips in, which is so unattractive because she's in her mid forties and way too fat for skipping. She's also at the age where sex should be illegal. Prostitutes-young, beggars-old. Major difference.

Today Bunny's got the bee-hive hair going on and as she sits down she says, "Lots, lots, lots to do today." Because important things need extra emphasis.

Tommy thinks that if she removed the over the top make-up and her hair wasn't so artificially blonde, she could pull of an elementary school teacher. Right now all she's pulling off is a clown disguised as a 'sexologist.'

MORE BANK BAILOUTS?



I know that it's ballsy to suggest that anyone donate to anyone in this economic environment, especially if you aren't even in Dennis Kucinich's district. But his liberal voice is so important to keep around. When running against Obama, he was barred from a primary debate for daring to suggest an end to war--that's how dangerous the powers that be consider peace to be. So at least hear him out. I haven't decided whether I'll donate to him or not, but I know what kind of voice will replace his if he isn't reelected.

(FROM ELIZABETH KUCINICH)

Dear Friend,

Three years ago, Dennis went on the House floor, stood up for America's Main Street, and attacked the first round of bank bailouts - describing them as yet another vehicle to transfer wealth upward, leaving most Americans stuck with a raw deal:

"When Wall Street makes a profit, it is their profit. When Wall Street loses money, our
people lose money. 700 billion dollars. Why aren't we bailing out those millions of Americans
who are losing their homes?"

Three years later, his words still ring true. We continue to shape our economic policy in ways that reward the wealthy and protect the banks, all while we're told we can't restructure mortgages and that there's no money to put our people back to work rebuilding our broken infrastructure.

Click here to donate and help us keep this important voice in Congress:

DONATEKUCINICH

This debate isn't over. The Fed is now considering sending our tax-payer money over to Europe to help out - you guessed it - the banks. That's why on Friday, Dennis reissued the same warning and called on the government to stop the black hole of bank bailouts.

As he said on Friday, we know these unending bank handouts aren't helping struggling Americans. Of course, the banks are not investing in our infrastructure; they're not helping homeowners with inflated mortgages; they're not rebuilding our schools or creating jobs. No - the banks continue the same practices that got us into this mess: global speculation, deceptive financial "products," and excessive leveraging. And we pay the price.

Like Dennis said in 2008:

"I would predict, Mister Chairman, that we will be right back here in a few months with the
same kind of problems because we are not solving the underlying matter here; which is a
distortion of the economy because of speculation run wild on Wall Street."

We are "right back here" again. And its never been more important that we keep Dennis' strong voice in Congress to fight for ordinary Americans and a better future for us all.

Thank you,

DADT REPEAL

Now DADT has been repealed. These were my thoughts on the subject when gay marriage and it's repeal were the two main goals of the mainstream gay movement. Be careful what you wish for.

DON'T ASK, DON'T GO!

I sure hope that Don't Ask, Don't Tell is repealed. Gays deserve equal rights across the board. Case closed.

That said, why on earth would anyone want to enlist right now?

The two unpopular wars we're fighting barely even came up in the midterm elections. Except with gays -- for some reason we're eager to join in the fight. Dan Choi, the poster boy for repeal, recently equated the bullying that the legislature engages in by keeping DADT in place with the bullying that's caused a rash of teen suicides that shocked the gay community. OK, so I guess all gays agree that bullying is a bad thing. And that no one should do it, right? As the most hawkish nation, the US is the biggest and meanest bully in the world! Yet Choi and others want participate in its actions abroad? It's not logical. Either bullying is wrong or it isn't. While the schoolyard bullies harass people verbally the Pentagon flies soldiers to occupy foreign countries for indefinite killing sprees. Oh, but we call that Operation Iraqi Freedom.

She say fiscal CONSERVATIVISM. Unless this is some new hyprib that she invented a la Palin, the word is conservatism. What a dunce. And how can she be against gay marriage with a fag husband?

AND THE AWARD GOES TO...

(via Ashton Cruz) Personally I think the Emmy award for Outstandin­g Supporting Actor in a Comedy should go to Khloé Kardashian . He's a fabulous actor, and I dont care what people say, having to dress up in drag and play a woman on TV is not an easy thing to do.

In 2004, John Cameron Mitchell organized a benefit called Wedrock with an amazing cast which included Margaret Cho and Lou Reed. I had a blast that night but in hindsight, maybe I should avoid wearing white! Kate Bush's version wasn't so big in the states but you might know it as an album cut from Pat Benatar.

GET 'EM, CHER!



CHER CALLED INTO ELLEN'S SHOW TO SAY THIS ABOUT HATE MAIL HER TRANS SON CHAZ HAS GOTTEN: "If you got that excess time and that amount of hostility, I'm not so sure that I can say anything to you that would make you change your feelings," Cher says. "Those are feelings of such hostility and fear I don't know that I would have any magic words to make you feel more comfortable and to soothe you into not being terrified of my child dancing on Dancing With the Fucking Stars."

But then it got weird. Ellen started drooling and told Chaz to pull out her c@ck. So Chaz did and then Ellen pulled out her bigger one but since Ellen's stitches were fresh hers fell off as the room filled with a fishy smell. I can't tell you what happened next because I got out the tweezers and shot my load all over the TV.

BUSTED: BIANCA LEE'S NEW SHOW

I really enjoyed this show during it's first run. You may recall her fun role in TransAmerica. Here's the info:

BUSTED: THE MUSICAL



Spend the evening in New York’s infamous Tombs with downtown legend Bianca Leigh

Sept. 26 - Oct. 10 at The Laurie Beechman Theatre

Buy tickets here

"Leigh has a story to tell that is significant and relevant... out-and-out bracing fun" - Martin Denton, NYTheatre.com

"Excellent... (Leigh is) an ingratiating personality armed with killer timing." - David Barbour, Lighting and Sound America

"Leigh is beguiling...clearly honest and consistently engaging... a joy to behold." - Erik Haagensen, Backstage

"Richly complex." - Dan Bacalzo, Theatremania

Theatre Askew will present the World Premiere of BUSTED: The Musical, written and performed by Bianca Leigh. Directed by Theatre Askew artistic director Tim Cusack, it features original songs by Tony-winner Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q), Obie-winners Taylor Mac (The Lily’s Revenge) and Ellen Maddow (The Talking Band), Jeff Domoto (Cornbury: The Queen’s Governor), Super Buddha (Debbie Harry, Scissor Sisters), Matty Pritchard and Isam Rum (The Din), and William TN Hall. The production, which was workshopped last year under the title A Night at the Tombs, features musical direction by William TN Hall and costuming by Arthur Oliver. Performances begin September 26 at the Laurie Beechman Theatre.

Chicago meets TransAmerica in BUSTED: The Musical, actress Bianca Leigh’s recounting of the events surrounding her arrest for alleged solicitation against the backdrop of the "Black Monday" stock market crash of 1987. While cooling her 6-inch heels in the clink awaiting arraignment, Bianca looks back at her past and tries to make sense of how a skinny Jersey boy with dreams of becoming a great Shakespearean actress ended up as a high-priced dominatrix. In a tour-de-force performance both hilarious and moving, Bianca revisits her past as a young transwoman in early transition and brings to vivid life more than a dozen characters -- from her disappointed mother to the sadistic corrections officer who enacts the ultimate humiliation.

Bianca Leigh is one of downtown theatre’s leading lights, "an expert actress and exquisite personality" (NYTheatre.com). Her New York stage roles include Time in Taylor Mac’s The Lily’s Revenge, and Margareta in William M. Hoffman’s Cornbury: The Queen’s Governor and Livia in Theatre Askew’s I, Claudius, Live (the latter two directed by Tim Cusack). Bianca most recently played Virginia in Talking Band’s New Islands Archipelago; Frannie Halcyon in the workshop production of the new musical Tales of the City at ACT in San Francisco; and co-narrated Young Jean Lee’s Untitled Feminist Multimedia Technology Show at The New Museum. Movie roles include Mary Ellen in the groundbreaking film TransAmerica. Miss Leigh has also worked extensively in nightclubs and cabarets such as Bar d’ O, Arci’s Place, and Don’t Tell Mama.

BUSTED: The Musical runs September 26 - October 10, Mondays at 7:00 PM. The Laurie Beechman Theatre is located at 407 W. 42nd St, between Ninth and Tenth Avenues -- accessible from the A, C, E trains to Port Authority. Tickets are $18 and available at 212-352-3101 or www.SpinCycleNYC.com.

MICHAEL MUSTO'S DISH WARMED OVER



The Advocate:

Kudos on a terrific title. What’s the story there?
Michael Musto:

There was a cater waiter at Robin Byrd’s house on Fire Island who once told me that the motto of the Pines is “fork on the left, knife in the back, spoon up the nose, dish, dish, dish.” I thought it would be too unwieldy to run the whole thing, so I just went for the first half.

JUSTIN VIVIAN BOND'S TANGO:

It’s difficult to pin down exactly what sort of literary debut Justin Vivian Bond has made with "Tango: My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels."

Is it a bruising chronicle of gender identity struggles, told from the other side of the mountain? Is it the funny/sad tale of a budding trans kid cut down by small minds before he could bloom? Is it a steamy bisexual tween-to-teen confession of first base romps with chicks and dangerous role-playing liaisons with the neighborhood bully?

At a very busy 132 pages, the slim and sassy "Tango" fires in too many directions-but rarely does it miss the mark.

LADY BUNNY IN THAT AIN'T NO LADY! 8PM EVERY TUESDAY IN OCTOBER AT LA ESCUELITA!



(photo by Billy Erb)

The raunchy, demented drag diva of Wigstock fame presents her first full-length one wo-man show in almost a decade at the popular latin nightspot La Escuelita every Tuesday in October at 8PM. Fast-paced and action-packed with glitzy costumes and Bunny's trademark gravity-defying bouffant wig, THAT AIN'T NO LADY is a cabaret designed for a night club crowd--no lengthy monologues or sappy show tunes here. For mature audiences who enjoy irreverent humor!

Though she just finished her second season of RUPAUL'S DRAG U on LOGO as the Dean Of Drag giving contestants "Lady Lessons", Bunny's deliciously bawdy brand humor is far from ladylike. Bunny re-works pop songs into hysterical parodies, using recent smashes like Ke$ha's TIK TOK (which Bunny transforms into BIG COCK) to classics like ALL THAT JIZZ. No musical genre is sacred so expect to hear from everyone from Katy Perry to Taio Cruz to Britney and Whitney. Sprinkle in zany Laugh-In style joke routines for added politically incorrect fun.

The wacky Blonde From Beyond will also re-create some of her hit youtube videos, including her rap debut with a parody of Like A G6--the ode to uncircumcised men entitled Like A Cheese Stick, which was featured on Perez Hilton and Dlisted. Finally, a tribute to recently departed musical giants Amy Winehouse and Nick Ashford of Ashford and Simpson. And just wait until you get a load of Bunny as the monstrous "Scare" in a wicked spoof of Cher in BURLESQUE.

With a ticket price of $14.98 that's as cheap as her humor and a recession-friendly 1 drink minimum, THAT AIN'T NO LADY provides over an hour of laughs for a decidedly affordable price. However, since Bunny's singing has been known to drive audiences to drink, there is a strictly-enforced 25 drink maximum. And this show re-introduces a quintessentially NYC venue with a great stage and atmosphere while bringing some much-needed trash back to the increasingly Disney-fied Times Square area.

PLEASE NOTE: Online ticket sales end 1 hour before showtime--ie 7PM. No credit cards are accepted at the door-- Cash payments for admission only. Credit cards are accepted for drink purchases.

CHAZ BONO RECEIVING DEATH THREATS OVER DWTS

Cher's female-to-male transgendered son is scheduled to appear on Dancing With The Stars. Here's what one troll from Fox has to say:

Chaz Bono does not have a civil right to be transgender, suggests Fox News pundit Dr. Keith Ablow, discussing his recent column, “Don’t Let Your Kids Watch Chaz Bono On ‘Dancing With the Stars’.” Ablow adds that Chaz Bono’s appearance on “Dancing With The Stars” is a “fame tour” “promoting transgenderism,” and warns parents that tomboys watching Chaz Bono on DWTS will want to become boys—or may think they’re transgender.

DENVER CHURCH HIDES RAPED TEEN

I guess abortion is against their religion, but this isn't: "The church pastor made young Anderson apologize to the congregation when she discovered that she was pregnant, but she was not allowed to tell the church goers that the pregnancy occurred because she was raped."

If the have to work that hard to deceive to make themselves seem respectable while sacrificing a 15 year old rape victim's integrity if not sanity, doesn't that force one to question the entire mission organized church?

LAST YEAR'S EVENT:

OLBERMANN BLASTS OBAMA ON CLEAN AIR

OBAMA would rather lick corporate butt again than reduce smog!?! Who can defend this? Olbermann said that Obama had given a huge gift to polluters and corporations, and had delivered an equally large "whack across the knees" to his base. "Who on earth in the White House thinks this is a positive for them and in which delusional parallel universe do they live?" he asked.

Where are the clergy on this? Obama and corporate polluters are defiling God's green earth--yet religious leaders say nothing? I guess that offering plate doesn't get too full if they are too controversial and suggest outrageous,conspiratorial lefty ideas like fresh air to breath.

Honestly, how does anyone sleep at night knowing that for some short-term profit they'd kill our one atmosphere? Not to mention that an election is coming up and Obama is the candidate most likely to respect the environment. This has nothing to do with party--this is self preservation, baby!

FROM HUFFPO:



Keith Olbermann excoriated President Obama on his Friday show for halting the impending toughening of environmental regulations against smog.

The announcement from the White House that it would keep widely criticized 2006 regulations in place until at least 2013 did not sit well with Olbermann. In the voiceover introduction to his show, he thundered, "what the hell is going on in the White House?"

Olbermann said that Obama had given a huge gift to polluters and corporations, and had delivered an equally large "whack across the knees" to his base.

"It seems, in short, to reduce his campaign logic to 'what are you going to do, vote for Rick Perry?'" Olbermann said.

MARTHA STEWART AS ME

Folks are saying that Martha Stewart's Hallowe'en look resembles me. I don't see it, myself. SHe's too thin!

POPEYE THE SAILOR MAN

I was channel-surfing and caught Popeye. The plot: his baby's trying to sleep but a harpist who looks like Harpo is playing loudly. So Popeye punches him to death and then sings a lullaby while the brat smokes dad's pipe, gets sick and passes out. Popeye, desperate to keep things quiet, punches out a whole music school. But he needs his spinach to have the strength to punch out honking 10 cars. The end. NUTS!

And I wonder where that whole spinach thing which gives him strength came from? Do sailors really eat spinach or was this a trick to get kids to eat their vegetables to be strong like Popeye? And does canned spinach even have nutrients? The things that keep you up at night!

THE DREADED HARD SELL

ME: "Venti iced coffee unsweet no room."

Starbucks barrista: "Would you like to try our clover whatever-it-was?"

ME: "Can you just give me what I ordered?"

She acted like I was the meanest queen on earth but I'm so sick of the constant hard-sell. I'm already there buying your over-priced product and you demand more before you accept payment? Whatever happened to customer is king? Or queen, in my case.

I know I shouldn't take it out on the employees but Starbucks is about to lose a very loyal customer. It's also very sick that someone in a boardroom decided that it would please customers to hear "May I help the next guest?" Did they debate between choosing guest and client--I want a damn drink, you fool! You didn't invite me there so I'm not your guest, hon. And they sometimes wear headsets at that location on 14th and Greenwich Ave, Starbucks is getting kinda gross. I know a lot of lefties hate them but I do like their product, but the aggressive marketing to existing customers is a big turn-off.

It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, & truth." The boy thought about it, and asked, "Grandfather, which wolf wins?" The old man quietly replied, "The one you feed."

JOEY ARIAS I'VIEWS MISS PIGGY!

Ye Olde Papere: Joey Arias Interviews Miss Piggy By PAPERMAG

Welcome to our new feature, Ye Olde Papere, wherein we pore over old issues of Paper magazine, looking for juicy nuggets from yesteryear to share with you. Today, we feature an interview between drag icon Joey Arias and timeless ingenue Miss Piggy from our February, 1999 issue. The piece was timed to the release of Muppets from Space and the launch of Piggy's perfume, Moi, which is a real thing that you can still buy. Though we think about Muppets at least two to three times a week, Miss Piggy and Co. have been particularly in the ether lately, with Jason Segel's upcoming November film revival, the Muppets, and, her royal pigness' appearance at Opening Ceremony's Fashion's Night Out Party at their Ace Hotel location September 8th. Here, we learn a little about her dark past and, ahem, what happens behind closed doors with Kermy.

HOG HEAVEN -- GETTING A TASTE OF MISS PIGGY


click here

Although her millions of fans around the world can't remember a time when Miss Piggy wasn't a superstar, the glamorous leading lady hasn't always been in the pink. Born and raised on a farm, Miss Piggy enjoyed a typically happy agrarian childhood. Tragedy struck when she was six and her beloved father was killed by a tractor. Never close to her mother, Piggy was brokenhearted, finding solace only in her dream to become a star.

Miss P. left home as a teenager, having graduated from charm school, where she became the perfect lady. She gathered her courage and managed to find employment in retail, selling ladies' gloves. Miss Piggy was forced to pose for certain ads -- one of them for a bacon product.
