True to queer form—with the Julie Andrews worship and all—this video brought me INCREDIBLE joy and made me wish so badly that I had been there. It is post-modern, guerrilla performance art - but with charm and warmth instead of angst, anger, and existentialism.

My friend Jonas was reading Obama's book on a recent plane trip. An older, grey haired woman leaned over to him and said, "you know he's the Antichrist, don't you?"

and you are rarely thought of, you are expendable.
That doesn't mean your job isn't important but if you
were in Star Trek you would be killed off in the first
episode you appeared in.
