5 pints of beer is a lot for 140-lb me. 3 aspirin, one orange juice, and on my second cup of coffee, the temptation to crawl back into bed is great. but I had fun; music was sometimes awful, but mostly decent, and sometimes amazing - and it was good to see a crowd of scruffy friendly guys. I've always enjoyed weeknight going out, so I must do it again soon.

Location: Minneapolis, MN
Marital Status: Not married. 47 6'4.5" 205 musc
Hobbies & Interests: Getting and giving good old fashioned over the knee bare bottom spankings. Making young guys kick and cry as I spank their cute bottoms. No face pic - if u ask for one before reading this profile, you're lazy and deserve a spanking.
You'd think the problem I have with this profile is either the spanking thing, or the no face pic thing. Nope. I just wanna know why if you are over 6 feet tall, you gotta include that extra 1/2 inch? I mean, to those of us (nearly) 5'8", there is no difference between 6'4" and 6'5". You're really really tall, and I doubt I'd have to bend or kneel to lick your balls.

Do not adjust your TV set. Still gay; still porno-crazed; still rambling; definately not straight - not even curious. BUT - I am selling these two Command Books which have some cool - if hard to look at cuz it's got all this nakedy woman-y stuff - Bill Ward illustrations. I was only familiar with his name cuz he did a comic for Drummer magazine - entitled DRUM. But apparently the guy's been doing his thing for decades! Seeing these, I never would have imagined he'd done "pin-up" style illustrations in the 50's - but here ya go - The Glamour Girls of Bill Ward. Funny, I was searching GOOGLE for the name "Bill Ward" but then narrowed my search to find the gay stuff - so I used "BILL WARD + DRUMMER" - not realizing there's some Black Sabbath guy with the same name. Scarier than the str8-sex-pics! Anyhoo --- here's more samples, and a pic of the artist himself.

Somehow I managed to find a phone number for a guy I knew a couple of years ago who helped me thru a similar crisis. He answered on the 2nd ring, and is such a tech-geek that he immediately was asking all the right questions with only a couple of seconds on the "how've you beens" But, alas, after 6 hours with no internet connection, and 2 hours of him toiling away at my P.C. yesterday afternoon, and what seemed like a big fix without the dreaded hours and hours of saving files - this morning I'm starting to see similar intermittant connectivity with my Road Runner internet connection. Rats! Something about my tcp IP stack being corrupt - and then I coudn't find this file - "secur32.dll" - this is the part that doesn't make sense. Ok, a file is corrupt, another one isn't found - why can't I just lift/copy the two from my Windows disc, and not have to erase my whole hard drive and start all over from scratch?

you can prick your finger, but don't finger your prickThis post from bentkid reminded me of my favorite George Carlin routine. I was a kid (11) when the album came out, and remember my parents buying the album, but only letting us listen to part of it. My older brother (15 or 16 at the time) begged and begged to hear the whole thing, and was allowed to take it into his room later that night only after swearing he wouldn't let the rest of us hear it. I was too good of a kid - it never occured to me to even try to get a hold of it until years later when I was in college. Here's the clip of Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television.

unpleasant, uncouth, and tawdry"Many of the photographs were of nude male models, usually posed with some object in front of their genitals . . .; a number were of nude or partially nude males with emphasis on their bare buttocks . . . . Although none of the pictures directly exposed the model's genitals, some showed his pubic hair and others suggested what appeared to be a semi-erect penis . . .; others showed male models reclining with their legs (and sometimes their arms as well) spread wide apart . . . . Many of the pictures showed models wearing only loin cloths, `V gowns,' or posing straps . . .; some showed the model apparently removing his clothing . . . . Two of the magazines had pictures of pairs of models posed together suggestively . . .
Each of the magazines contained photographs of models with swords or other long pointed objects . . . . The magazines also contained photographs of virtually nude models wearing only shoes, boots, helmets or leather jackets . . . . There were also pictures of models posed with chains or of one model beating another while a third held his face in his hands as if weeping....
Our own independent examination of the magazines leads us to conclude that the most that can be said of them is that they are dismally unpleasant, uncouth, and tawdry. But this is not enough to make them 'obscene.'"
What a job! Yup, another Friday night reading old Supreme Court cases on line. (Uncouth?? - wtf?) It's fun to sift thru these things, and then wonder about the stuff that's not in there. This one had a favorable decision, allowing the bare buttocks and barely covered genitals that were "deliberately planned .. (to) appeal to the male homosexual audience" to continue to be sent thru the U.S. mail, but most puzzling to me is that it's a 6-1 decision (remember, there are 9 seats on the Court). So what reason did Frankfurter and White have for not participating in this case? And what happened to the copies of MANual that were at issue here? (My money's on Byron "Whizzer" White)

"Cum Crazed Criminals!"
directed by: Ansel Rainier and Vincent DePaul (1989)
Starring: Beau Beaumont (Batdude), Kevin Young (Throbbin), Danny Bliss (bar pickup), Ken Bower (The Poker), Mitchell Cook (Alley Hangout), Eric Degiorgio (chained slave), Marc Peugeot (Sugar Kane), Robert Reyn (The Peeper), Frank Strong (The French Tickler) , Manuel Javier Gomez (Mountain Captive).
Oh gosh, what to say? It's hard to tell if Beau Beaumont is doing a great job being bad, or just plain bad. And then there's the age-old porn problem - letting the actors speak. The "Peeper" has such a thick accent, it definately adds to the fun.

scroll over my bodyI should be doing other things, but a link from an AOL chat profile brought me to this guy's site with a cheesy mouseover thingee (sorry for being so technical). I suppose I am only making fun of him because he is self-described as "naturally masculine and sexy", - and it took years of post-graduate work for me to get my maculinity. Jealousy isn't pretty, is it?

I've been trying to spare y'all the dozens of snapshots I've taken each day of the mourning doves nesting on my window sill - but this one is my current favorite - I took it yesterday morning before work. I can hear them flapping their wings, and I know they'll be gone soon. But I have to say it's one of the best ways to begin the spring, these two new cute little bits of life right outside my bedroom (not to mention the dedicated parents, who take turns chick-sitting, and who've returned to my window sill for the third year in a row so far.).

love at the post officeAs I am putting the kickstand down on my bike in the little lobby of the 3rd st. post office, I see a guy with a big box behind me. I start to open the door for him, but he insists he has it. When I try to let him go ahead of me thru the 2nd door, he gestures for me to go first. Tall, bearded, handsome. I love him. I get in postition in line, and turn sideways, nonchalantly looking back towards him. His profile as beautiful as his , uh, frontview(?), I try not to stare. I notice another man come in, stand right behind him, and ask the guy "want me to wait with you?" Not quite as handsome, but still a good-looking man; he glances in my direction as his pal says "Naw, I'm fine by myself, catch up with you later." A slight frown as he leaves his box on the ground, and walks out. Meanwhile, my guy is so purposefully not looking in my direction, his love for me becomes obvious. It's my turn at the window, as I walk up to the window I try to make eyecontact but as he stares intently down at his package, I realize I should let him be. I finish up my business at the window - meanwhile he's advanced to the other window - I turn to get one more look at his fuzzy face, denim-covered lower half, purposefully expressionless expression that screams "I Want You" - and grab my bike to leave. It hits me then. The other guy must've been his boyfreind; perhaps they had just returned from a New Paltz wedding, and now, seeing me, he has regrets. Sees me, sees the other possibilities out there, and his insides are in turmoil. Wondering what it would be like with me, in bed, in our upstate house, sleeping late on Sundays, having coffee while reading the New York Times, making love again....
I love my post office.

Probably my two favorite early 90's porn actors, Cliff Parker and Aiden Shaw were in perhaps 6 or 7 videos together (Command Performance , Grand Prize, Dirty Dreaming, Summer Buddies, etc) - but I believe this is the only scene they did together. It's one of the better examples of the dreaded "cum on my cheek" scenarios. While I understand the rationale for doing it on the cheek - it's safe, you still get the cum shot and the bottom's face - it's just that it so rarely looks good. Usually the actor is suddenly tossing his face into the action sideways, grimacing with his eyes sealed shut, waiting for the gooey onslaught. It just looks articifial and unappealing. But here, while the side-of-the-face bit still looks artificial, Cliffy genuinely looks quite interested in getting Aiden's load on his face, and those extra few licks just before Aiden shoots, plus Aiden pulling Cliffy up for the kiss afterwards, make it a much better than average scene.

Yup, I do occasionally sell stuff that isn't porno. But I do think all the above titles, with the exception of John Rechy's The Vampires, is gay-themed (his might be bi-ish, I think). Help me clear off these overloaded bookshelves, please?
Bullets I read several months ago, and thoroughly enjoyed (I have a copy to keep), Consenting Adults - I just watched the made-for-TV movie with Marlo Thomas and Martin Sheen late the other night - you know the author is the same one who wrote Gentleman's Agreement. I remember watching the film years ago and having that "why is it always from their perspective" feeling - but the other night was actually the first time I started to think about how my queerness might've affected my folks. Oddly, I don't really know; I told my Dad by letter - he responded quickly by phone in an amazingly positve way, and I assume he broke the news, officially, to Mom. But I was 22 then, already moved here to NYC, but they must've thought about it for years before then, there were plenty of signs.

Unfortunately, it was a professional. (No, I wasn't paying him to touch my balls, specifically) A visit to the doctor's office, and he pulled on his rubber gloves and tried to explain how to check my balls for any unusual signs. Of course, standing there completely naked with a guy holding my nuts, looking down at myself all I can think about is how tiny my dick looked - it was so friggin' shrivled up - the ol' 'frightened turtle' look. Pre-occupied with that, I was completely not paying attention to his instructions. I didn't even have it in me to joke that checking my balls once a month wouldn't be a problem, as I already do it every twelve minutes.

Reality: staying online with my "lets have sex" AOL screename all night with no takers all the while eating everthing in the refrigerator and cupboards while watching hours and hours of reruns on TV.

Found myself awake early this morning. Out the window, the sky is getting lighter, and I hear this sound. For the third year in a row, a pair of mourning doves have been nesting beside my air conditioner, outside my bedroom window. They've been poking around out there for 2 months, but the past week or two it seemed like one of them was always there in the nest, and I knew from past experience they're ready to lay an egg. Unlike past years, I've disciplined myself not to keep peering thru the manilla envelope I have set up blocking the view thru the window beside the air conditioner. But after hearing all this chirping yesterday, I had to look, and caught a brief glimpse of one of the parents feeding a chick.
So this morning, I quickly realized what had awoken me, stood up on my bed to peer thru the tiny opening and could see bits of a wing moving, and a parent bird pointing it's beak downwards towards a pile of feathers. Feeding time. I got back down, pulled up the covers, as the sun began to appear from behind some clouds. Smiling, I fell back asleep.
As you can see from this pic, I couldn't help myself later, and just had to pull the barrier away long enough to take a pic or two. I was shocked and delighted to see an actual pair of chicks, and the 3 faces facing me nervously, as I quickly snapped a couple and moved the barrier back in place. Blurry, I know, but certainly cute.

I hope the posting of these pics from mags I'm selling isn't too boring for folks. Sure, I'd love y'all to go to the auctions and BID! BID! BID!; but I also think some of these pics are amazing - the men so handsome, or the photographer capturing something that just sticks with you. So for the above pics, if you click, you'll get the larger image version, rather than a link to the auction. Both are from the same magazine - CIAO, October 1974. While both are different sorts of men and poses, both say the same thing to me: balls.
I try not to think how long it's been since my face has been buried in a nice set of balls (9 weeks, 2 days), but I have to say that it is an act I enjoy even more than cocksucking. Perhaps its the aroma - balls are more likely to have a nice bit of sweat that teases the nose while enticing the tongue. Maybe it's the teasing of the cock - dangling just above, waiting for attention but still enjoying the activities just below. And size isn't such a big deal here - while "low-hangers" are often spoken of, what really matters is the effect of your mouth, your tongue, your facial hair pushing into the set of nuts that drives your partner crazy. Small or large, low and loose or close and tight - it's the sensation you give your partner that makes ball-licking so f*ckin' enjoyable - making hiim squirm, moan, yelp, beg you to stop, plead with you to continue.....

Gosh, when I see ads like this, and others in the back of some of the vintage porno books I collect and sell, it makes me wonder just how much porn (I realize this is just an ad for leather belts.....) went through that Post Office on Canal Street in the 70's and 80's. My ideal job: being a postal worker, working the P O Box window at the Canal Street Station in the 70's, cruising the pornographers as they came to pick up their orders, and sending out their packages to sweaty, nervous men all over America. Mmmmmmmmm..........

"While you were gone I did some shooting."
directed by: Joe Gage (1980)
Basically, Gage wanted to experiment a bit, get a gathering of select men together for a one-night stand-up sex session, like a backroom, and see if he could get enough material to make it into a commercial film. Using an unprecidented four cameras (the standard was, and is, two - but sometimes only one!), and filmed in 4 hours, (the first hour wasn't even sex, just intros, "sniffing each other out" - clothes on!). Anyone who enjoys copious amounts of cum will f*ckin' love this film!

it wasn't so horrible - I suppose nothing can top crying in the voting booth while pulling the handle for Walter Mondale in 1984. Dean and most of the other former contenders were still on the ballot, as was MR SCAREY HIMSELF - Lyndon LaRouche.
Meanwhile, in other news, I've recently discovered my AOL SPAM folder. While most of its contents are indeed SPAM, unfortunately a few inquiries, and even - egads! - fanmail, were in there. One young man from the West Coast turns out to be rather handsome (I know, I know, 3000 miles is a kinda far to even consider someone that way, but hell, look what happened to local Burrito Man - nothing!) OOOPS! time to get to work!

Dated Dean, Married Kerry?
Remember that catchy slogan from the early days of the Democratic Presidential primaries? I can admit now that way back when, I was actually flirting with the idea of voting for Dean. Despite differences on important issues like capital punishment, after listening to him speak many times, and seeing him interact with voters on those C-Span shows, I thought I might just get over my he-must-be-perfect idealism. Fine, we'll go for another Clinton, someone who's smart, has demonstrated fiscal responsiblity, seems open to discussing the problems with such things as the death penalty, etc., etc. But he's gone, and now we're all supposed to jump on this he-can-beat-Bush bandwagon. Marry Kerry? Need I remind people that not only is that illegal in most parts of this country, but the groom himself is against same-sex marriage. I just don't see why, so early in the process, we're so eager to give this man a free pass. He is unable to come up with anything on same-sex marriage except "I feel it's just between a man and a woman" and "this is just what the Republicans want - wasting our time discussing issues that divide us." I am just so tired of hearing these guys address the nation, and speak as if I, and other gay people, aren't part of the crowd that they are trying to woo, and lead. Screw you!
So tomorrow is the next round of primaries, finally one I can vote in, and we've got the usual dreadful choices. The two top contenders arent even being contemplated by me - so my choice really is between Mr Kucinich and a write-in. Last time I did a write-in for a democratic party primary, the 149-year-old lady at the voting place was quite irritated, and demanded to know if my candidate is a member of the Democratic Party. When I simply said, "Yes, I am" she foisted the big precious piece of paper in front of me, wouldn't let me borrow her pen to fill it out, and walked away. I'm such an evil voter, not playing by the rules. I gotta tell you, Kucinich only looks good on paper. He seems to believe in all the same big issues as me, and there is no hesitancy in his arguments. But he is a scarey man in person (or at least on TV.) The other night, when he stopped mid-answer during a debate to try to get Larry King's attention, and King was like "Dennis, I don't have to make eye contact with you to hear your answer" - Kucinich didn't even get it - that he wasn't addressing King, but us, the voters, watching on TV.
So, I suppose tomorrow I should arm myself with my own pen.
