I'm suddenly very happy

That Isherwood never reviewed When Is A Clock.

Which has a lot of direct address. A lot. Because, you know, I think it works for the play.


I'm back on the grid after an absolutely smashing wedding. I am the happiest guy around right now. It couldn't have been more beautiful. Thanks to everyone who was there that made it so special, to Lynda, our friend and officiant, our families, John Devore who was our awesome MC...just thanks.

After the ceremony and festivities, Pam and I took a trip up to Hudson, NY. If you're ever around that way, might I recommend staying at The Croff House? It's where we stayed and I can't praise it highly enough. The couple that run it, Russ and Duncan, are just insanely terrific.

Anyway thanks for your patience. I'll hopefully have more to say soon enough. In the meantime, how're you?

Gettin' hitched

Well ladies and gents, time to go on a brief hiatus. I will not be blogging for about a week and a half, as I'm getting married on Saturday to this lovely lass.

See you on the other side!

National Coming Out Day

On National Coming Out Day, I'd like to send a special thought to my brother Dan.

Where Dan and I grew up, it wasn't exactly easy to be gay. In fact, I'm sure it was incredibly confusing and difficult for him. Now that he's out, living with his long-time partner Joe, he's got a great house in the Minneapolis area and a fantastic job.

Dan has been through a lot in his life, but he's right now as happy as I've ever seen him. I'm proud of him and I love him and I know that he wouldn't be as happy as he is now if he hadn't decided to embrace himself and live in the open. He's incredibly smart, strong and determined. He's an inspiration.

Love you Danny! Happy Coming Out Day!

Bachelor Party

All I can say is that I remember about one third of my bachelor party. So, mission accomplished right?

Steve Burns tells a story on The Moth podcast

Steve Burns has a great story up at The Moth. Their podcast is terrific, and you should definitely check it out on iTunes.

You may have heard of him from GLEE CLUB, THAT OLD SOFT SHOE, DENOUEMENT and BRANDYWINE DISTILLERY FIRE. Oh, and that kids show.

Listen here. Fantastic.

Obama at Gen44 Summit

Listen. This is a great speech, but more than that, it's true. I absolutely still believe in this guy, and if you don't, remember how many of his opponents are blissed out by idea of you feeling disheartened. That's their whole strategy people. Anyway, love this.

And while I'm at it

Kyle shared this with me and now, I share it with you.
