I Wish That I Had Jussie, Girl!

I just binge-watched Season 1 of Empire (yes, I'm that behind) and can I just say how much I love it!?  Poodle asked me to describe it for him and I said it was Dynasty meets Dirty Sexy Money meets Glee meets Hip Hop, Rap and R&B.

It's sad that those three shows have almost no POC presence (as most mainstream television doesn't), but that's the beauty of Empire.  It's a primarily black cast who bring depth and substance to the characters, regardless of how large or small the role might be.

Speaking of beauty, there's not an ugly mug to be found anywhere, save for Judd Nelson as Terence Howard's nemesis (oh, and maybe one other character that I'm not going to mention because spoiler alert if you haven't seen it).

I'll probably go on about various members of the cast, but for the time being, I am smitten with Smollett.  Jussie Smollett, that is.

Jussie plays the middle child of Lucious Lyon, Jamal Lyon, who is incredibly talented, but he's also gay, which makes his father reluctant to name him the successor of Empire Records.

He.  Is So.  Dreamy.  He has also been added to The List.  Which reminds me...I'm going to have to do an update on The List.

Until, I do, won't you please just love on this gorgeous man.  I've also included one of my favourite performances from the show. 

 Jussie "Jamal Lyon" Smollett, You're So Beautiful.  SPOILER ALERT!  If you haven't watched the show yet, don't watch past 1:15!!

Let's Go Down To The Tennis Court Locker Room

Rafa has teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger to create a sexy locker-room moment.  Normally, I'm much more about his body than his face, and this pretty much solidifies my belief that he is much more about the body than the face.

Call Me Irate

Halloween is a little more than two months away, but it's never too soon to for transphobic assholes to make themselves known!

The folks over at Wholesale Halloween Costumes have whipped up a hate-worthy get up that lets you reenact Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair cover.  I am so fucking angry about this.  Transgender people aren't here for us to make fun or suggest they're worthy of being a costume!  I knew this was going to happen, too.

A few days after Caitlyn came out, the jokes and memes began almost immediately.  I went onto my Facebook and really asked everyone to think about what they were reposting.  I also sent out a link to a GLAAD page helping people understand transgender people.  I also asked people to PLEASE don't make this a joke at Halloween.  I was mostly afraid that someone would think a half man/half woman costume would be hilarious.

And now it has started.

I've already sent the link to GLAAD and the HRC, but please feel free to contact Wholesale Halloween Costumes and let them know what transphobic assholes they are.

I might also suggest...(totally up to you) making a preemptive strike by spreading the message on Facebook and all your social media connections about this!

A Change Is Gon' Come... ~or~ I'll Not Tumblr 4 Ya

I've neglected The Lisp for far too long.

I've relied too much on Tumblr because I was afraid that "The Powers That Be" would shut my wee spot down.

Tumblr is a dangerous place for gays of a certain age.  If you're damaged like me, then you're constantly looking for validation, and Tumblr is both perfect and dangerous for anyone looking for instant gratification.

So, I'm back...

The Lisp is going to be NSFW, so bookmark this page for your hometime.

I'll be working on some classic posts, following up on exclusive interviews and finding some new content that you haven't already seen, like, EVERYWHERE on the internet.

Thanks for hanging in there, and welcome! to new followers visiting from the Tumblr site. 

Adam & Who?

Heavy Metal Devil Noise

NOTE:  I am not making ANY of this up.  

 Over the years, my constant search for new music has delivered some major winners and a LOT of losers.  I've also found that there are so many new genres and sub-genres popping up every day, especially in the world of hardcore heavy metal music.

I've always referred to it as "Heavy Metal Devil Noise" but did you know there are tons of sub-genres?  There's descriptions like, doom, death and industrial.  And then you come across descriptors that you just feel compelled to explore.  Take it from me...don't do it.

Take for instance, Anal Arcade who hail from Ecuador.  Their new release is called The Temple Of Madness and is considered Porno Goregrind.  With such compelling titles as: Vaginal Skin, Bukkake Chicas, and the inoffensively titled Shemale Monster Cock. 

Charming...but then what was I expecting from a pornogrind band?

Then there's Carnivorous Eyaculation (yes, I typed that correctly) from Peru.  Their release, Grotesque Inhuman Extermination is considered "Slamming Brutal Death Metal."  Included on the CD are tracks like Cerebral Executions Feat. Mittch Vomitous (from Raped By Pigs), Excrement Goddess and Sodomizing Whores.

Nice.  To be fair, it's not clear who is getting sodomized. 

And finally, from the gentle and serene land of Germany comes Brutal Castration by GutFuck.  Featured are the title track (of course) along with Cock-O-Copter, and a slew of other titles that at this point in the post is making my stomach turn.

Absolutely no pun intended there.

YUCK!  Time to listen to some Madonna and BeyoncĂ© and Kylie and Robyn and Rihanna and...

I'll be returning to my "What I'm Listening To" posts and providing links for sample tracks.  Cheers!

In the meantime, enjoy something a little more OUR taste.

Happy Birthday, Madonna!

This is the first year I haven't planned a big mega-post or mixtape...

Not that I don't worship the queen ANY less, but I'm just going through stuff right now and doing a big post just wasn't on my mind.

I'll try to make it up.  In the meantime, enjoy the Rebel Heart megamix, available for d/l on soundcloud!

I'm Going Down Low?

Here's a switch!

Republican State representatives Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat wanted their aides to help them cover up their extramarital affair by fabricating an email from an anonymous political enemy would indicate he had been “caught behind a Lansing nightclub” having sex with a man.  (The link above also includes the recorded conversation between Courser and his aide.)

So, these two Tea Party Republicans think that being exposed as a closeted homo is easier to recover from, politically, than a cheating husband and father.

I guess we're not so bad after all.
