How can you not love Jason Mewes?!

He’s funny, outrageous, charming, no bullshit kind’a guy, polite and, yes, very cute.

The star of such landmark films as The Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob and the current, Zack and Miri Make a Porno [he steals the film and, in it, even bears it all], the man in REAL life has been on a curvy and taxing journey.

I had the opportunity to spend a couple hours with Jason today at his home in the San Fernando Valley for an article I’m writing about him, his career, and his mother, Gayle, who died from AIDS. It will be published in A&U magazine and the reader will be surprised at some of Jason’s candid responses.

Been sick with a cold the past week, so I’ve had time to think about interviews that got away – people I would have liked to interview.

Top on the list is Karen Carpenter. When everyone was into the Rolling Stones in the late 60s, early 70s, I was crooning with The Carpenters. At times I was slightly embarrassed to admit it because others would poke fun and call ya ‘white bread’ or ‘uncool.’ Today I’m proud of it! Karen was such a talent and had the voice of -- I know its cliché -- but an angel. She was pitch-perfect and sang with such clarity. When I hear her songs played now, I get chills.

In the late 80s they made a TV movie about her life. Cynthia Gibb played Karen and Mitch Anderson played Richard.
Louise Fletcher played their mother. I hope they release it on DVD. I’d like to see it again.

This is the quintessential Christmas album ever!

Over the past couple of years I’ve pursued an interview with Richard, but I was told that he does not do interviews any longer.

For All We Know, Karen’s probably on Top Of The World looking down on all our Rainy Days And Mondays. And Karen, We’ve Only Just Begun because I still feel very Close To You…..

What a BANG up time I had aboard the Crown Princess with 200 gay and straight Pozers for the Cruise Retreat. The ringleader, Paul Stalbaum [in yellow trunks], had many activities such as The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game, seminars, medical lectures, and many social networking gatherings and off the boat excursions. Paul is an extraordinary guy and I’m currently piecing together an article about him for A&U. Many people I met on the Cruise Retreat had been repeat cruisers -- that certainly says something about Paul and this wonderful bunch of people.


Such a cool cat. No, it was hot and huuuummmid!
The ports we stopped: Princess Cay, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and Grand Turk

Formal night for dinner aboard ship

The BOOBS flowed on Friday night, 7th November, at Here Lounge in West Hollywood, for the launch of award-winning photographer, and my friend, Renee Jacobs’ Provocateur 2009 wall calendar of nude women. Hell, if I wasn’t gay I’d swing the other way! Renee’s photography truly is incredible.

BUST those Mormon balls! We joined the protesters on Thursday, 6th November, at the Mormon Temple in Westwood to fight against Prop 8. Shame on them! Tax ‘em! Keep religion out of state politics. It’s civil rights [again] and [again] we’ll win. There is NO WAY they can stop us. Personally, I don’t believe in marriage, but I do believe in Human Rights.
