I thought I should have included this. : ) This is where JD and Turk sing about guy love.

Let's face the facts about me and you,
A love unspecified.
Though I'm proud to call you "Chocolate Bear,"
The crowd will always talk and stare.

I feel exactly those feelings, too
And that's why I keep them inside.
'Cause this bear can't bear the world's disdain,
And sometimes it's easier to hide,
Than explain our

[J.D. and Turk]
Guy love,
That's all it is,
Guy love,
He's mine, I'm his,
There's nothing gay about it in our eyes.

You ask me 'bout this thing we share,

And he tenderly replies,

It's guy love

[J.D. and Turk]
Between two guys.

We're closer than the average man and wife,

That's why our matching bracelets say Turk and J.D.

You know I'll stick by for the rest of my life.

You're the only man who's ever been inside of me.

Whoa, I just took out his apendix.

There's no need to clarify,

Oh no?

Just let it grow more and more each day.
It's like I married my best friend,

But in a totally manly way.

[J.D. and Turk]
Let's go!
It's guy love,
Don't compromise,
The feeeling of some other guy,
Holding up your heart,
Into the sky.

I'll be there to care through all the lows.

I'll be there to share the highs.

[J.D. and Turk]
It's guy love,
Between two guys.

And when I say, "I love you, Turk,"
It's not what it impies.

[J.D. and Turk]
It's guy love

They are so gay, and they don't even like boys. ;p

Another cute gay ad.

Is it an ad by mychemistry.com or eHarmony? Whichever one it is, I like the idea of this gay ad. : )

I'd like to see my local newspaper does such gay ad.

This is an adorable gay short film, directed by Judd King. Running Without Sound is a gay themed film that focuses on Sean (Shad Sager) who is deaf. When he is bullied by another guy in the locker, Derek (Trace Barnes) steps up to defend Sean.

That starts a beautiful friendship between Sean and Derek.

Part 1

Part 2

Okay. I am one season behind, but I just thought of checking out Greek to find out what the hype is all about this gay boy Calvin Owens (Paul James). I chose this episode, well.. for the episode title sake, and this season is supposed to be the season to break the taboo of Dawson's Creek's Jack, as in gays do have love life.

And you know what. I was impressed. I did not really know Michael's role, but Michael (Max Greenfield), who is Calvin's boyfriend, brings a nervous Calvin to a gay club. It is Calvin's first time, and so, Calvin drags his sister along, who brings along a depressed female friend who needs some cheering up. Where can a depressed girl be cheered up better? None other than gay club, where the guys are hot, and they are always complimenting on the girls on how hot the girls looked.

I love the dialogs. From the straight guys are insensitive to the others... I'm loving this tv series.

Here's a gay song that talks about what Real Men are. This song reached no.15 in the Dutch Singles Chart in 1982. Phew... talk about a long time ago... Sigh... Anyway, it is a good song. : ) Tori Amos made a cover version of this Joe Jackson's song.

Take your mind back - I don't know when
Sometime when it always seemed
To be just us and them
Girls that wore pink
And boys that wore blue
Boys that always grew up better men
Than me and you

Whats a man now - whats a man mean
Is he rough or is he rugged
Is he cultural and clean
Now its all change - its got to change more
cause we think its getting better
But nobody's really sure

And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are

See the nice boys - dancing in pairs
Golden earring golden tan
Blow-wave in the hair
Sure they're all straight - straight as a line
All the gays are macho
Cant you see their leather shine

You don't want to sound dumb - dont want to offend
So don't call me a faggot
Not unless you are a friend
Then if you're tall and handsome and strong
You can wear the uniform and I could play along

And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are

Time to get scared - time to change plan
Don't know how to treat a lady
Don't know how to be a man
Time to admit - what you call defeat
cause theres women running past you now
And you just drag your feet

Man makes a gun - man goes to war
Man can kill and man can drink
And man can take a whore
Kill all the blacks - kill all the reds
And if theres war between the sexes
Then there'll be no people left

And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are

Bumped into this gay short film, directed by Joel Moser and written by Moser and Sam Mathewes. Story by Mike Clark. Waiting is a simple story about a loving gay couple Michael (Justin Martindale) and John (Sam Mathewes) who want to adopt a baby. They have to convince a pregnant woman why they are suitable parents to raise her child. It runs only for around 9 minutes, but enough to show how longing the gay couple here is to have a child to complete their home.

: )

Beautiful movie.

Ah. The joy of Sailorhood.

I don't normally like a gay themed movie with non-attractive male leads. I know. I am shallow. So, 15 seconds into the movie, and when I saw the male lead of Venkovsky Ucitel, I was not sure if I could sit through the whole movie. But I did. This gay themed film was one of the rare good gay films out there. The teacher escaped his life by coming to the country side. And when he was asked why did he come, I was interested.

So, what is this movie about?

It's about this male teacher, Petr (Pavel Liska). With this new female friend, Marie (Zuzana Bydzovska). Who is interested in him.
But he is interested in this one, Lada (Ladislav Sedivy). Who is her teen son.

Who is interested in this girl.

Who has a fling with the teacher's ex who drops by to check on the teacher.
One thing led to another, and the son ran away to look for his ex-girlfriend. He ran away because the teacher betrayed his trust, when the teacher did a bad bad thing at night when he passed out. And the teacher needed the boy to forgive him badly, but the boy would not. Only the boy's mother did.

I still think the movie is well-made.

This is what I have to admire of Singapore - its willingness to explore the art of movie-making, and taking one further step to make a taboo topic - gay movie.

With the help of the Auteur Sylvia Chang acting as Jen, this movie explored the life of a Singapore woman, who raised her 3 sons with her earnings from her Hainan chicken rice business. The situation is made a little more complex with her two eldest being gay and were already dating men, with reluctant blessings from her. Her only 'hope' to see grandchildren now lied with Leo, her youngest son. With the help of Kim Chui, a neighbour who was interested in her, Jen wished to know if her son was gay.

Along came Sebine, a French exchange girl, whom Jen hoped would convince Leo of the beauty of the hetero world.

But Leo's world was shooked up when his best friend, Batman, left Singapore. As Jen witnessed the tears of Leo shed, Jen knew her wish for her own self-defined perfect world was never meant to be.

I did not think that the movie did justice to Sylvia's talent, but I did believe that her skill did help to save the movie. It was funny to see a Taiwanese actress trying to capture the way of a typical Singaporean woman style of talking.

Alvin Chiang & LePham

I thought the movie should focus on the eldest son too - Daniel (Alvin Chiang). Daniel is a air steward. Who is young and good-looking. Who chooses to settle down with an older guy. Way older guy. Like a daddy-type. What the heck?! Where's the glamour world of a gay air steward? The movie did not pay enough attention on his problem. Only merely at the end where he chooses to get registered with his darling in France Taiwan (thanks, Anon).

Alan Wu & Craig Toh

Harry (Craig Toh), the second son, was portrayed as the typical gay comic relief. Slightly sissy and a BIG drama princess. Who could not stay long in gay relationships. Not of his own doings, but because relationships just happened not to last in his gay world. But I did think it was funny how he would always get gifts for his mom - gifts that were from the line of work of his boyfriend of the moment. Shampoo, and then cookie, and then lastly toothpaste. It was the toothpaste boyfriend that allowed a glimpse of happiness for Harry - it did shine and sparkle. And watch carefully Harry's toothpaste boyfriend - he's none other than the sporting hunk Alan Wu.

LePham & Andy

Leo (LePham Tan)was the teenage son that everyone wanted to watch over - to see what he would be. I was disappointed that the film did not try to explore his relationship with Batman sexually, but instead chickened out and concentrated on the weird, and unnecessary, Sebine. She was a laugh, not in a good way. Leo did explore his sexual side with her, but with Batman, we were expected to accept that Leo was indeed a confused gay boy, just because he cried when Batman left.

Where's Superman when we need one?

But this movie is still a must-watch, to see the attempt made in a country where gay is a taboo practice. Admirable. And light.

The first ever openly gay song? Apparently, according to Wikipedia, Do You Come Here Often by The Tornadoes in 1966 was. I had hunted everywhere for the dialogs shared in the song to have an idea what they were talking about, but unfortunately I failed. Anyone cares to share?

Well, this is a good find, although I am not able to locate the lyrics anywhere on the net. Ron Morris sang about his Boyfriend's back - taken from his album Boyfriend and Other Sides of Love. I was seriously believing that it was a cover version of the famous My Boyfriend's Back, but it is not. I still like it though.

In his album Another Side (2007), John Barrowman of the Torchwood fame covered several old hits and one of them was the classic You're So Vain, made famous by Carly Simon. I was so thrilled to find that he did not change the lyrics.

The song was accusing the guy who neglected the singer, abandoning something that could be beautiful between them... The first part was revealing the accused to be a man, so vain.

You walked into the party
Like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror
As you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed
That they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and....

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

You had me several years ago
When I was still quite naive
Well you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave

But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams
They were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee and....

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you? Don't you?

I had some dreams
They were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee and....

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

Well I hear you went up to Saratoga
And your horse naturally won
Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun

Well, you're where you should be all of the time
And when you're not you're with
Some underworld spy
Or the wife of a close friend
Wife of a close friend, and....

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

Wilson Jermaine Heredia (Angel) & Jesse L. Martin (Collins)

I have wondered how gay Rent (2005) is. So, I forced myself to sit down and watched this depressing musical, which is a contrast of Hairspray or Mamma Mia!. I was eager to see any male leading gay plots of the show. And then, I saw it. Nope. No manly male-to-male gay plots, but a drag queen and a man. Sigh. What a waste of my time.

So, here is the song they both shared -

Live in my house
I'll be your shelter
Just pay me back
With one thousand kisses
Be my lover - I'll cover you

Open your door
I'll be your tenant
Don't got much baggage
To lay at your feet
But sweet kisses I've got to spare
I'll be there - I'll cover you

I think they meant it
When they said you can't buy love
Now I know you can rent it
A new lease you are, my love,
On life - be my life

Just slip me on
I'll be your tenant
Wherever - whatever - I'll be your coat

You'll be my king
And I'll be your castle

No you'll be my queen
And I'll be your moat

I think they meant it
When they said you can't buy love
Now I know you can rent it
A new lease you are, my love,
On life - all my life

I've longed to discover
Something as true as this is

(Collins) (Angel)
So with a thousand
sweet kisses If you're cold
I'll cover you And you're lonely
With a thousand
sweet kisses
I'll cover you You've got one nickel only
With a thousand sweet kisses
I'll cover you
When you're worn
out and tired With a thousand sweet kisses
I'll cover you
When your heart has

Oh lover I'll cover you
Oh lover I'll cover you

Damn. This gay cologne ad is hot!

MTV is cool. It is an icon, and it is friendly. A gay friendly channel. And here is an gay ad that encourages one to be safe. Or perhaps a bi ad.

I do not know much about car, but I am convinced now to buy a Renault Clio, after looking at this cool gay ad. : )

A newspaper playing the gay card? Nice gay ad.

This is the first Asian gay novel that I have bought and completed reading. A good gay book, I have to admit. From the first page onwards, I wsa already hooked.

Peculiar Chris is a gay novel about a teenage Chirs growing up, as a gay boy, hoping for acceptance in Singapore. From his first mixed up pretentious relationship with Sylvia, to his actual first - Ken, and his friendship with Nicholas, a brief affair with Jack and finally, Samuel.

I was hooked when I read. I was hooked and wanted to know more about him and Ken. I wanted to know Sylvia's reaction to her finding out that he was gay (which the book did not cover) and perhaps to his life in Singapore, after being labeled as a 3-0-2, as in 3 over 3, which means 1 1/2. 1 for male, and 2 for female.

This is a must-have book for gay books collectors, but I have to say that since this book was the first book written by Johann, I forced myself to understand how the characters in the book was portrayed to be in self-control, and not obsessed with wild sex, unlike the stereotyping that is going around in the society about the gay community.

Chris is one who is obviously not into that much sex. No sleeping around, and neither are his friends. No experimenting. And for a 20 year old guy, I think he goes through a lot, and seems to be very matured for his age.

I did not like at all the ending that was brought up to the Lan Yu level. I hate Lan Yu's ending, and I hate AIDS plot, and I still don't see why the book has to be ended in that way. And why the screw up in a Johor hospital? Is there a need to end gay books in tragic?

But still, for all the pages until the unnecessary last few chapters, I find myself liking Johann's way of writing. : )

Here's one delightful book that I have just completed reading. The Best Little Boy in the World novel, which is supposed to be a memoir of the author, Andrew Tobias, who wrote as John Reid. Actually, to be honest, whether it was John Reid or Andrew Tobias, the change of the name did not do so much influence on me as I explored the book. When I was reading this book, it was more like Andrew-who? Not that I am really fond, or knowledgable, of the financial world, where Tobias is famous in.

This book is about the supposingly Best Little Boy in the world. A boy who does not do things he believes the society is not approved of. So, he does not fart. Nor does he talk dirty words. And he gets the best results in classes. And in sports. He does not lie. Nor does he masturbate. The Best Little Boy does what Best Little Boys are expected to do.
However, Best Little Boy notices that he likes boys. He likes to imagine his cute male friends as cowboys he wants to play cowboys with. No kissing, no touching, no hanky panky, but just cowboys. And that makes him a loner in the world where boys grow up to become young men who date girls, who want to have sex with girls, who have sex.
Best Little Boy grows up slower. But when he does, he explores his world and leaves his suppressed life behind, and begins to feel that happiness he longs for. Not that it comes easy. There is Eric, who fails to keep him interested for long. There is Chris, whom he has gone into a relationship with, although he is eyeing Golden Boy, Chris's best friend. And there is Freddie, whom he admires, but cannot have.
I enjoy this book. It tells me of an American boy who grows up in an American society where gay is the background. There is much to learn from his life. But what I do like as well is the honesty projected by the author.
The author said that his friends commented that the earlier part of the book was interesting, and the other half was a drag (a bit). I sawit differently. I thought the earlier part was draggy, although still interesting enough, and the otehr half was the fun part when he explored his sexual world.
