Its a Gay Sophie's Choice

What are the Chicago gays to do on such a summer's night?

Donna Summer is appearing tonight at Ravinia - to the north

And Liza is appearing at the Casino in Hammond - to the south

Where to go? Which diva to see? Who will we run into?

Doug and I tried as hard as we could to get all of our packing done and are siding with Liza.
Because - frankly - each time she takes the stage could be her last. Maybe This Time indeed.

Who would you go see?

This makes me feel weird inside...

I know this didn't make the primetime, but it was a perfect start to an amazing night.

Moving Sucks

Oy. I'm so fucking sick of packing.

Thanks for being patient this week everyone. I"m taking a week off of La Purge so I can wrap everything in newsprint and move.

Good times. Anytime you meet a payment. Good Times. Anytime you meet a friend.

I just figured it out...

Ever since this ad from McCain came out the other day, I have been trying to place what it reminded me of and I just figured it out!

Here's the ad:

Now, start at 1:53 in this clip:

F-ing Drop Dead Gorgeous! I love that movie!

Stupid Ad McCain...

Where the stories went to...

As we talked about on the last show, The Daily Purge's feed will no longer hold the entire history, so, starting today, you will only be able to access shows that were produced in 2008, (right at our format change). With that, all of the stories I used to read on the show are now gone as well. So, as we talked about on the last episode, I started a new podcast called I Know How It Is... that will feature those stories, some new ones, and hopefully some guest story tellers will be contributing.
I will be reading new stories on The Purge as well, but rather than play the same stories again, I thought this would open up a new avenue for this work.

So, if you would like to subscribe, head over to or subscribe on iTunes!

Thanks, as always, for all of your support!

Brand New Look, Same Great Taste!

Just in case this startles you, we have new podcast artwork! Don't worry, we're still the same. Now our artwork doesn't look like a death metal radio station.

Nerdy... but awesome!

Go ahead, make fun, but I totally had all the Star Wars action figures, so this kinda thrilled me.

I'm a Headline!

So for the last 10 years or so I've been checking out everyday for my theatre and Broadway gossip and news.
Imagine my surprise when our listener James e-mailed to tell me he read about me in Playbill today.

I had a lil thrill seeing my name in a headline.

Silly, I know - but kinda cool

Fun With Truncation

So a friend of mine just sent me this screen capture from his facebook home page.

At first glance I just thought it was funny that Allison's said "gave birth to a whole"
then I saw mine.

For the record it read "is looking forward to cockTAILS tonight"

but is probably true as it reads above as well.

Thanks facebook.

I'll just say it... I love him.

Anderson likes the leather lady... interesting.

AC... swoon.

Funny stuff...

Paris Hilton... who would have thought...

I'll Take a Case of Big Mo' Please

My co-host on Sara caught this display with her iPhone.

I friggin' love it.

The fact that it seems to be endorsed by a NASCAR star makes it even more delish.

Sounds like something I could really sink my teeth into.

Doing Push-Ups...

Excuses, excuses... they got caught, the end... (via Towleroad)

Emile Hirsch says he was just engaging in some non-gay work-out action when he was caught in a strange-looking situation with his Speed Racer co-star Kick Gurry, and now he's been prompted to explain it:

"Me and Kick were in the trailer hanging out. Kick was sitting back with his hands behind his head and I was doing push ups. It was hot so I peeled my driver's suit down a bit, and then Eric, the wonderfully gay production assistant, walked in. I jumped up really quick, but I was out of breath. Eric slammed the door shut. We went to Eric later and tried to explain. He was like, 'Shhhhh. I will never tell.'"

Hirsch is set to star this fall as gay activist Cleve Jones in Gus van Sant's biopic Milk.
