Skipped through a few episodes of Hustling, a gay+ web series about a former hustler trying to start a new career as a private chef in NYC. A sad soap opera, though the commentors seem to feel it is Shakespearean.  An empty world. Ah, well. I guess I'm of a different age now and culture. The lead guy is, objectively, a major hunk. He does for me, alas, nothing. As appealing as a new car.

Skipping through a few episodes of Looking, about Three Gay Boys And Their Lives In Contemporary SF. The draw is almost entirely Russell Tovey. Ah, Russell Tovey. Although having Scott Bakula in a steambath scene with Murray Bartlett has its appeal.

In both cases, the evil god Eros does his usual chaos. Hustling is pretty soulless. Looking is more stumblingly human. NYC vs SF?

Neither of these stories have much of any relation to my life at all anymore, old me. (Though some of the tumult I remember...and not that long ago.) The natural passage of time. And my typical way of "moving on." Although the magical draw between men is something I have never moved on from. Nothing else in the world like it.

With all its un-gayness, as it were, I like my moved-on world, with un-gay Mr B in it, a lot more.

A lot more.

Elitist Elites

How Theologians Have Failed Asian Christians—and How They Can Do Better | Christianity Today:

Good line: "In Latin America, Liberation Theology opted for the poor...and the poor opted for Pentecostalism."

Your Monday Morning Decline

I wound up watching about 30 seconds of a hiphop/rap video by a Caucasoid rapper named Riff Raff.

Any culture which creates this stuff and then celebrates it and makes it into a hugely profitable industry deserves to die.

Really. It's beyond shameful.

Archetypal quirkiness

Leather, a strange 2013 gay flick made of fragments of interest and weirdnesses. It's not about the gay leather subculture. Available on YouTube.

Some spoiler info below; if you plan to watch it, you may not want to continue reading.

After learning of the death of his estranged father, urban grad student Andrew arrives at their old mountain cabin with his incredibly infantile queen of a boyfriend* and unexpectedly reconnects with childhood buddy Birch, who'd become dad's surrogate son in the decade-long interim. Drama ensues.
*As I often say, right-wing "homophobes" cannot come up with more repulsive stereotypes than gay-originated media. This pathetic excuse for a male is a tantrum-throwing infant who cares only about fashion and his pet rabbit, Mary Anne. Really. No kidding. 
It's a combo family/boyhood-friend drama. It has antique hippie back-to-nature romanticism, plus contemporary LGBT dysfunction (and contemptible and wholly gratuitous knee-jerk politics). For all its oddness, bumps and wrong turns, the worthwhile center of the story portrays, IMHO, the redemption of a lost gay male through re-connection with the boyhood friend whom his redeemed father redeemed. He moves from a retarding "gay" relationship to a maturing erotic relationship outside the standard identity labels.

The two men are opposites in a variety of ways, which makes for conflict/attraction, of course. The dark furry earth man and the gingerblond smooth intellectual man. A classic pairing of chthonic and ouranic

Both of them look very fine in their own way. Andrew Glaszek especially...who's also a decent actor with a boyish but very masculine energy. And they're even better together.

Enforcing the New Religion

English Manif: 300 Articles You Have to Read to Understand What Is Meant by the Term "Homofascism":

Hugely larger lists in regard to race and sex could easily be assembled.

The Seven Truths of the Liberal Faith --multiculturalism, feminism/LGBTQism, redistributionism, pacifism, secularism, environmentalism, transnationalism--brook no opposition and must be established By Any Means Necessary.

In a charming re-cap of old continental Catholic attitudes, "error has no rights."

Bill Whittle: Ferguson and the Real Race War | Truth Revolt:

"...black racism is the toxic glue that holds the progressive coalition together. Tolerance of – in fact, as we see from the events in Ferguson, open encouragement of black rage at a narrative that not only does not exist but reverses the daily outrages that do exist, is what defines modern progressivism. It is the politics of envy, anger, entitlement, lawlessness, violence and bald-faced lies. "
