|You just got Robbed|
I often find myself studying the faces and physiques of freshly minted gay porn stars and wondering how the hell they got into porn instead of becoming world-famous movie stars. With Rob Lowe, I spent the '80s wondering the opposite. Literary. No worries, though—his '80s output was like porn with clothes on anyway. What a gorgeous twink, and how impressive that with such a pretty-boy look and such a light screen presence he wound up looking more (the face and body) or less (the hair) ageless and being the one gainfully employed Brat Packer 25 years on.

Monday Night Baseball
June 12, 1972 - September 1, 1975
From 1972–1975, NBC televised Monday games under a contract worth $72 million. In 1973, NBC extended the Monday night telecasts (with a local blackout) to 15 straight. September 1, 1975 saw NBC's last Monday Night Baseball game, in which the Montréal Expos beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6–5. Curt Gowdy called the games for NBC with Tony Kubek in 1972–1974 (meanwhile, Jim Simpson and Sandy Koufax called the backup telecasts), being joined in the 1973 and 1974 seasons by various celebrity guests from both in and out of the baseball world (among them Dizzy Dean, Joe DiMaggio, Satchel Paige, Bobby Riggs, Dave DeBusschere, Howard Cosell, Mel Allen, Danny Kaye, and Willie Mays). Joe Garagiola hosted the pre-game show, The Baseball World of Joe Garagiola, and teamed with Gowdy to call the games in 1975.
On April 8, 1974, when Hank Aaron hit his record-breaking 715th career home run, Tony Kubek, who was calling the game with Curt Gowdy and Joe Garagiola, criticized Commissioner Bowie Kuhn on air for failing to be in attendance at Atlanta on that historic night. Kuhn argued that he had a prior engagement that he could not break.

Last night, during the final commercial break on CBS, before I switched over for Downton Abbey (yep, I got hooked several years ago), CBS Cares ran a special Valentine's Day edition.
I found it to be amusing and perfect, though the use of "woman" could be "spouse" or "partner"!
Yes, my good people, it is
Buddy Ball Check Day
Nothing says love more than making sure you're nuts are in good shape. Then, encouraging the men you know to do that Testicular Self-Exam (TSE), to get them to do a thorough check of their balls, says you care.
And, we should all care about the welfare of our fellow man.
American Idol alumnus Rayvon Owen has come as gay in his new music video for his song “Can’t Fight It.”
Owen, who placed 4th in the 14th season of Idol, says that the song and the video are both very much about his coming to terms with his sexuality. In an interview with Billboard, Owen opens up about his journey to self-acceptance and why he didn’t come out while on Idol.
Says Owen of his decision to come out now,
“First I had to become comfortable with myself and who I am as a person. For the longest time I kept that part of my life separate, away from music, away from a lot of things. As I was growing as an artist, I realized I was missing out on so much of my artistry by not connecting the two. It’s easy to ignore when there are only a few thousand people who are fans and know who you are, but after Idol millions of people know me and I’m much more public.”
Owen adds that a personal tragedy influenced his decision:
“Someone I knew passed away. He never got to live his truth, and there are many people who die young and never get to leave their mark or make a difference. I’ve been given such an awesome platform so why not use it to help, when there are so many people out there like me who haven’t come to terms with who they are or even worse, have been kicked out of their home or who have been bullied or who have committed suicide. As long as this is happening, it’s worth bringing this to people’s attention. Since Idol and music in general have given me an opportunity to reach people’s lives, why not get the conversation started?”
Owen released the video for “Can’t Fight It” on Sunday, Valentine’s Day. His love interest in the video is played by Shane Bitney Crone, whom you may recall from his heart-wrenching documentary Bridegroom. After Crone’s partner of six years, Tom Bridegroom, died in a tragic accident, Crone was barred from attending Bridegroom’s funeral by his family. Owen says that Shane’s story “really inspired” him.
As for why Owen didn’t come out while on Idol, he says,
“I was afraid. Here’s a show that reaches so many people, including a lot of small town, conservative people, who grew up in the same environment I grew up in. I was afraid that if I shared this part of my life, would people vote for me? It’s sad that I had to think that. I never said I dated a girl or I’m straight, but I never said I was gay, either. I just let people think what they think. Not just publicly but with the contestants, with the producers, with everybody. I decided to keep that to myself. Do I regret that decision? You can’t go back and change it. You just learn from it.”
Another reason for not coming out at that point is that he hadn’t yet come out to his mom, which he wanted to do personally rather than on national TV.
Owen grew up Christian in the South and says that coming out to his mother was challenging but ultimately worthwhile. He hopes that his coming out will have a positive impact on LGBT youths struggling to come to terms with their sexuality in the face of bigotry:
“People are still getting kicked out of their homes and parents are still disowning their kids. My mother still loves me but it wasn’t easy at first. And she said some things that she apologized for. She only knows what she knows from the community she grew up in, which is very similar to how I grew up. That’s another reason why I’m doing this. I think it’s a conversation that needs to be had in the church, especially as an African-American. There are so many LGBT people in the black church who are either leaving because they don’t feel welcome or they’re afraid to be who they really are…No kid should have to do what I did and pray to not be who they are. That’s why I think it’s important even in 2016 to say this…It took a lot for me to come to this point to want to talk about this. I think this issue is bigger than me. If I can contribute to that and help get the conversation started, it’s really important.”

Which president's best friend wrote, "his thighs were as perfect as a human being could be"?
It’s President’s Day, when we salute George Washington (who was actually born on February 22) and all our Commanders in Chief.
While we’ve never had an out president (yet), gay people have been a part of presidential history since the beginning. In fact, a gay man once saved the president’s life.
On September 22, 1975, Sarah Jane Moore pulled a gun on President Gerald Ford as he was leaving San Francisco’s St. Francis Hotel. Fortunately, Oliver Sipple, a gay man and a decorated Marine who served in Vietnam, was there to grab Moore’s hand as she fired.
He ruined her shot and saved Ford from assassination, becoming a hero to the LGBT community..
“For once, we can show that gays can do heroic things,” said Harvey Milk, then running for a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
Once, calling a president gay was muckraking. Now many in the LGBT community look to the unwritten history of our leaders for glimpses of ourselves.
Here we check out seven times the LGBT community intersected with the commander in chief.
George Washington: Friend Of Friend Of Dorothy
George and Martha Washington never had children, and historians agree he was more interested in her money than her figure. But I couldn’t find any direct evidence Washington was gay.
According to historian Thomas Foster’s Sex and the Founding Fathers, though, reporters often attacked Freemasons like Washington, claiming they were “engaging in anal penetration with wooden spikes used in ship building.”
In any case, we do know a gay man was one of Washington’s closest allies.
Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben was a Prussian military officer who fled Europe to avoid prosecution for homosexuality—even Benjamin Franklin knew of von Steuben’s open secret.
But his expertise in training and tactics was more important to the Founding Fathers than who he slept with.
Von Steuben arrived at Valley Forge in February 1778 and quickly trained the men how to perform drills, stand at attention, wield a bayonet and quickly reload a musket, among other skills. With his expertise and discipline, von Steuben was integral in helping the Colonial Army defeat the British—and served as General Washington’s chief of staff in the final years of the war.
Washington’s last act as general was to write von Steuben a letter thanking him profusely for all he had done.

Gummy, chewy, tasty sweets are the theme of Gumdrop Day, which presents you the opportunity (or the excuse) to eat as many gumdrops as possible (within reason, with consideration for your teeth, sugar levels and general health)!
If your computer is running slowly, if your PC fans are noisy, or if you’re experiencing crashes and poor performance, it may be that your computer is just a bit dusty.
Clean Out Your Computer Day is an annual reminder to open up the casing (turn off the power first!), and to give everything a good, careful clean out.
