The Legend of Danny Bailey


The Ballad Of Danny Bailey
Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
art from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road pending (BT|MT)


Some punk with a shotgun killed young Danny Bailey
In cold blood, in the lobby of a downtown motel
Killed him in anger, a force he couldn't handle
Helped pull the trigger that cut short his life
And there's not many knew him the way that we did
Sure enough he was a wild one, but then aren't most hungry kids
Now it's all over Danny Bailey
And the harvest is in
Dillinger's dead
I guess the cops won again
Now it's all over Danny Bailey
And the harvest is in
We're running short of heroes back up here in the hills
Without Danny Bailey we're gonna have to break up our stills
So mark his grave well `cause Kentucky loved him
Born and raised a proper, I guess life just bugged him
And he found faith in danger,
a lifestyle he lived by;
A running gun youngster in a
sad, restless age

Child pornographer?


Who is this man? Who is this child?
What, exactly, is their relationship?

Anna - what about the troops?


Like it never dawned on her to haul her ass, and the rest of her, over to entertain the troops in Iraq, as heterosexual and sexist as it sounds.

Somehow this rings Marilyn-esque.
Well, except for both kids.
Is a Kennedy connected to this somehow?
What about Donald Trump?

Tammy Faye continues to hold her own.

Word of the Day|BLessed

To the "one in a million"

If you had the ability to see where you are unable,
you'd know I chose my words very carefully,
and believe, still, you are one in a million.
It's just that one doesn't profess strong emotions
in front of an assembled group, such as it were.

You're not just some kid.
You're one in a million who matters a great deal to me,
despite my mercurial self.

Haunting me.

Say something nice
even if it isn't true...

Stop eHarmony.com's
BLATANT Gay Discrimination

Update:

A call to a customer service assistant revealed this tidbit of information.

eHarmony's "research" does not reflect that gays (not lesbians; I referred to gays and lesbians, the woman only referred to "you gays") WANT TO HAVE SIGNIFICANT, MEANINGFUL and MONOGAMOUS relationships, and, to that end, they made a conscious decision to NOT service the gay community.

C'mon. I'm not the only fag tired of holding this torch. Let's make their lives fucking miserable.

You've seen the persistent television ads (no, not Gibbs College!) and quite possibly you received some unsolicited e-missive from the latest in the soulmate-matching programs entitled "eHarmony."

For some reason,
only "men seeking women" and "women seeking men"
need apply.

Let's flood them with your feelings on this obvious discrimination
which invades our visual media and computer in-boxes.

Tell as many gay, lesbian, and gay-friendly folks that you can.
Let Connecticut put an end to Dr. Warren and his fucking experts at eHarmony.

Please, make their Sunday a super one and bowl them over
with our collective voice.

Snickering all the way to the...

Snickers Pulls 'Kiss' Website, Sales May Drop

UPDATE: One commenter brings up a very relevant point. Had this ad featured two women, we'd all be drooling over it and loving it. The double standard lives on.

Snickers Pulls 'Kiss' Website, Sales May Drop


Apparently, the backlash over the Snickers Super Bowl commercial in which two men end up kissing after eating a Snickers bar from opposite ends was too much for the company to take and, as a result, the candy maker has taken down the commercial's accompanying website, afterthekiss.com. Typing in the URL simply redirects to the Snickers site.

While we liked this spot purely for its shock value, there's a faintly high probability this will have a very real negative affect on sales. Can you imagine the looks one will now receive from the checkout clerk when they buy a Snickers bar? That's just way too much snickering for most people to take and there's plenty of other perfectly good candy choices with far less embarrassment attached to them.

This just might be one of the most powerful Super Bowl spots ever to have run. Powerful, of course, in a very negative way harming the brand's sales significantly. Beware all you hipster creatives who think your ivory tower, insider coolness will be welcomed by all. Hardly. Remember, there's a whole lot more people living outside your world that in.

Somewhere along the line, this industry forgot that Super Bowl ads still need to accomplish what advertising is meant to do: sell. It's perfectly fine for advertising to go for the laugh, the tear, the shudder but it still has to sell or else it's all a pointless waste of money. It's too bad that many in the industry creating ads have forgotten that and have put too much effort into the creation of entertainment at the expense of advertising primary function: to aid in the movement of product from manufacturer to consumer.

The Snickers ad did accomplish something though. It just might be the first Super Bowl ad in recent memory to reverse the process and halt sales versus increase them.

One can debate (and many are) whether or not the spot, itself, or the reaction to it is homophobic or whether it was just an innocent play on "manliness" but that's not the point. It's an ad that, for whatever reason, has turned many people off of the brand and planted a negative association. That's the worst thing that can happen to a brand and the road to recovery might take some time. Or, like so many important incidents that occur in this country, people will forget within a week and go back to their normal routines with nary a snicker.

UPDATE: One commenter brings up a very relevant point. Had this ad featured two women, we'd all be drooling over it and loving it. The double standard lives on.

2007 will no doubt see some gay or lesbian youth making CNN's BREAKING NEWS headlines, possibly even interviewed by (our own) Anderson Cooper.

What the desired 22-29 year-old GWM crowd doesn't realize is that 30 years ago had I even the presence of mind to take Dayle (pre-op transexual; see various photographs in this blog, keyword "Dayle") to my prom, I'd have probably been beaten senseless and run right out of town.

As it is, they "forgot" to list my name with the other graduates in the local graduation rolls.
