JERRY!

Unfortunately, since A&U magazine had to 
remove* my feature on Jerry Torre
"The Marble Faun" --  the kid from 
the iconic documentary Grey Gardens
I will reprint here.

(A&U, August 2018)

*due to some crazy misunderstanding
between Jerry's photographer and A&U,
currently there are legal issues pending
pressed by the photographer, hence
Jerry's headshot is whited-out 
in the reprinted article below.

The whole legal thing seems a bit silly 
and immature in my opinion!












If you haven't seen the documentary, 
stage musical, or film...
DON'T ...MISS... IT!

Jerry is simply a delight!

LIFE MAKES NO SENSE

Life makes no sense . . . . so . . . 
as a human being
we need to give it sense!

Whatever it is that gets you thru this life
-- DO IT.  
(As long as you don't hurt 
yourself or others.)

Believe in a god, Buddha, Alla, whomever.

I like to believe in myself and tap into 
the power that I possess. I like to create
positive energy within myself, and to attract
other like-minded individuals.

I also like to approach life from a 
rational realistic mind.  
(Theories:  Rational Emotive Therapy, Reality Therapy, Behavioral Cognitive Therapy, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and so on) 

Yes, we do create our own reality, but I hope my reality includes morals and values that serve myself 
and others.

PISS OFF!

There are many annoying things
in the gay community.

One of them is the persistent question:
"TOP OR BOTTOM?"

I am extremely tired of that phrase!
I don't fucking care.

I like sex to just flow.  Why is being a top or bottom 
SO IMPORTANT??!

It's degrading, useless, nonsensical, labeling, 
righteous, humiliating, and shitty

ARE PEOPLE FUNNY?!

There was a 1950s show hosted by Art Linkletter called:

PEOPLE ARE FUNNY

People are. 
There's no words to describe the craziness of human behavior. 
No words fit.

I am confounded nearly every day
just how NUTS people really are.

BOSS

Most people CRINGE when you say the word "Boss."  

-- Why? --   

Because most people do NOT know HOW to be a (healthy, non-toxic) boss.  Most people abuse the power, get greedy, let their ego go wild, and just generally do NOT have the skills to handle people and support production.  

There's a knack of learning how to be in charge.  The boss must leave their troubles at home!  That is Business 101, but very few can do it. A wise astute United Airlines CEO once told me, 

"There are two roads in life; your personal life and your business life.  They should never intertwine."  

And you don't have to like a person to get along with them either. Some of the greatest teams hated each other:  Abbott and Costello, Lewis and Martin, and Fred and Ethel Mertz!

In my lifelong experience I have had many a 
horrible boss. It was all about their drama.

Also, at times, I have become vulnerable and confided in bosses (or teachers). Eventually, they used that personal information as ammunition against me.

Not nice.

I don't mind working with people, but I do not like 
working for them!
