Is XY still around? Did anyone else even read them? I look back on some of the staples of my new-gayness: XY, PlanetOut, the Abercrombie and Fitch catalog...and its shocking how much I forget they even ever existed. And now, I'm overwhelmed with how many gay-specific social networking sites there are. I'm losing track. Facebook is constantly showing my targeted ads for sites that I have no interest in, but I KNOW that there are people with profiles on most, if not all, of these networks. Whatever happened to the classic days of leaving your AIM buddy list on, so that new guys could bug you into sending you nudie pics?

Don't even get me started on gay.com. Or rainbow star tattoos.

Going around licking foreign surfaces just isn't a good idea, especially when that surface could have had a baby go through it. All I'm sayin'.

John is in the middle of, what he claims is, the "worst kept secret affair in history." We're not quite sure how the other man doesn't know, but we're just figuring it's his rapid memory loss and weak bowels.

As I reach the quarter-century mark in my own age, I realize how insensitive the gay community can be towards age. I tell people how old I'm turning, with a twinkle in my eye that only comes from the realization that I can soon, you know, rent cars or whatever. They respond "Oh, that's great" but it's not genuine. It's that same "Oh, that's great" that people say when you tell them you're Mormon, or that you're getting married to your douche-bag boyfriend, or that you're going to a Jennifer Lopez concert. I'm not dying, people. If there's one thing we gays know how to do, it's age gracefully. I'll just wait till I'm 35 or 40, start shopping at the Gap, and bleach my hair and BAM, I'll be getting carded at the bars in no time again being confused for Jonathon Taylor Thomas. I won't blame you if you don't know who that is -- remember, I'm ancient.

New site design (again). I like the cleaner look, and there's a few new things, mostly the amazing "buy" button by any comic strip[[ LJ Note: This is only on the CHB website at www.capitolhillbillies.net]]. If you want a high-quality print of the print you're looking at, just click there and I'll send it your way. Feedback always welcome: stu@capitolhillbillies.net or comment below.

I think it's time our generation knew the truth. I do my best to spread the word. (And yes, the word is bum.)

We gays have a lot to be thankful for lately -- that agenda of ours is really rolling along nicely. We're cool in the media, if not terribly stereotyped; we're breaking down marriage barriers one state, county, or city at a time; and Our Lady Gaga has graced us with a wonderful, it not awfully short, new album featuring Our Lady Beyoncé. Next year, I'm expecting a vice-versa -- a B album with G on it. Lets keep our fingers and testicles (testes? I can never remember) crossed.

I personally have more to be thankful for than I could express. So I won't gush out here, but I will tell you how ridiculously thankful I am for all of you: the guys and girls out there that are nice enough to put me into their regular internet routine, to comment on occasion, to correct my numerous spelling mistakes. SO THANKFUL. I'm thankful for this comic: from the people who read it, inspire it, or support it. Two thumbs and one wang way up.

This Saturday is a sort of grand gala known as the Red Dress Party, which apparently has been a tradition in Portland for some 15 years, but is only in its second year here in Seattle. William, always wanting to be the belle of the ball, took a considerable amount time picking out his costume until finally coming away with three finalists. Like a real celebrity, he wouldn't dream of being seen in the same dress for an entire event. These things have to be planned, like acts of a play, you know. Thank Beyoncé they limited the color to red, or he still might be assembling an ensemble .

More info here; tickets are $25 and you MUST be wearing a red dress.

Having known each other for so long, I'd say that William and I have a very domesticated relationship -- we comfortable enough around each other where entertaining each other isn't always the reason for getting together. When I was last staying with him, a scene pretty much identical to the one above happened; the two of us, bespeckled, with our respective laptops on, watching random shit, mumbling to each other occasionally. It's a wonderful, comfortable, sexless marriage. We don't need no silly civil rights n' shit. We have love and Hulu.

You all have seen People of Walmart, right? Because I have, and there went HOURS of my life, gone forever, only to be filled with too much denim, too little denim, Aqua Net, and so much crack (both drug and ass related). It's like the polar opposite of Go Fug Yourself, and honestly, I don't know which child I love more.

I'm pretty sure this happens to John, but I know it certainly happens to me. Probably the reason there wasn't a comic earlier this week -- honestly, I don't really remember...

As most of you know by now, Washington rocks and Maine sucks. Living in a state the has the first victory of a same-sex civil rights issue being put to popular vote is pretty rad, and I think for the first time, its apparent to me that progress is being made. Inch by inch (which, as most bottoms know, makes all the difference) we're succeeding. Maine isn't a total loss; its just another way to get to boys riled up again. It lost to, what, 53% opposed? That's only 3% folks! I'm positive if this vote was taking place 5 or so years ago, that gap would be much much larger. Just a little bit more...we need to really lube things up if we wanna get the rest of those inches in.

Barely got this done before work. Th-th-th-that's all folks!

By now, you've probably received a clear image of what I think of hooking up, especially over the internet: it's a game. And, because of this, your mad DPS skills might come in handy when it comes to trying to DT someone, or getting someones to DP you.

That's all I got for today. Washington, make sure your ballots are mailed out today (Tuesday) for Ref 71!

Just a few pointers for all of you who plan on getting more than candy this weekend.

I'm stuck working, so I envy you all. Let us hope, for my sake, that costume-clad drunks know how to tip -- I don't care if you think you're safe behind that Michael Jackson mask, I WILL hunt you down if you stiff me.

You want to know what's really scary? Referendum 71 -- the marriage equality bill in Washington state that's going up for a vote soon. So far, it's polling ahead; that is, more people are approving it. But, considering the disappointment that was Prop 8, I'm not getting my hopes up -- only my actions.

Speaking of actions, if you didn't hear, Bea Arthur remains to rock, even six feet under.

Hey, you all should tell the world what your costumes are this weekend in the comments!
