Chicago Gay Pride Parade 2003

Hetrosexuals like myself who live in the East Lakeview neighorhood of Chicago (better known to locals as BoysTown), can become honorary members of the gay community towards the end of June each year if they so choose. NO it doesn’t mean the we start experimenting, just that we show up on Broadway Street to watch the Pride Parade. I must admit that for the first 5 years I lived in the neighborhood, I refused to go to the parade — even though I could hear it from my apartment. It wasn’t that I’m homophoic, in fact I’m very liberal when […]

Ever have sex in a Wal-Mart?

Have you had sex at a Wal-Mart? If so, Playboy wants your story. Playboy: Wal-Mart recently stopped selling a trio of salacious and sophomoric lad rags after reporting “customer complaints” about their cock-tease pictorials and dumpster-diving humor. It’s the corporation’s latest puritanical move to stop you from reading anything even remotely racy (women’s mags are now covered with binders to conceal sexy cutlines, and even the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue once got booted off its racks).

Zizmor claims it’ll hyperhydrate your skin. But several medical experts—who haven’t analyzed it, but have checked out the list of ingredients—say it’s […]

Freezing Day At Wrigley Field

It’s been a long exhausting day. I went to work but left around noon to head to Wrigley Field where I was to meet my sister promptly at 1:15pm. I got there at 12:30pm. She showed up at 2pm. So I missed the first 3 innings of the first ever opening season game I’ve been to. I was so peeved. Luckily I was able to watch at a nearby bar until she arrived. Once she did, we headed into the stadium which was not even halfway filled. I’m assuming that many people who had tickets for yesterday, simply couldn’t get […]
