Yes, I Want Kids.

For as long as I can remember I have REALLY wanted to be a parent. Every time I see someone with a baby, or see a cute little kid on TV I get this funny feeling inside, I just can't wait for the day that I get to be a father. It's not one of those, "Ohhhh babies are cute, I want one so I can dress it up and play house" things either. I realize that a baby is A LOT of hard work and responsibility. It's a human being, not a dolly, and you shouldn't enter into parenthood with all these ideas of how easy it will be. I can't really put into words WHY I want children so badly. There's just something about the idea of loving someone so much you'd do anything for them, and all the other wonderful things that come along with parenthood that just appeal to me.

Now, that being said, I don't really know if I'll ever get the chance to be a father. I'm gay, and it's not easy for gay men to have children, the number one reason being that men can't get pregnant. When I bring this up with my friends they all say "Well, there's always adoption and surrogacy." And they're right. Those are two options. However, for some stupid reason, there's still a debate going on in our country that asks "can two gay parents properly raise a child?". I personally think that this is one of the most ridiculous things ever. EVERY DAY children are taken care of by single mothers, or single fathers. There are a lot of children raised by gay couples, and none of them are majorly messed up. (No more than any "normal" straight families anyway).

Some people argue that two men can't provide a child with the maternal aspect that he or she needs to grow up "properly". I wonder what people consider the "proper" way to grow up? I mean, everyone is different and thats what makes life so great. I am very confident that If I were given the chance to be a father I would do just fine with giving the child any and everything they need.

The other option mentioned was Surrogacy, and it's a good option. I'm not sure how it works, I haven't really looked into for one reason: There are so many children in this world already who need good homes. That is basically the only reason why I haven't though more seriously about it, I'd really like to be able to adopt someday after I find someone to share my life with who also wants kids.

I don't know if I'll ever be a parent, but I REALLY want it. I HOPE that by the time I'm ready for children (which is no time soon, it's years away actually) America has opened its eyes and realized that I can raise children, and do a damned good job of it.

Held Hostage By My Television

Last week I decided I was going to rent the first three disks of Season 1 of 'Queer as Folk' from Netflix. I made this decision based on some of the Netflix reviews and the fact that the show is filled with attractive men. I watched the first episode and liked it, but no more than any other TV show.

Then, episode 3 happened.

Spoiler Alert: Read no farther if you ever plan on watching Queer as Folk.

There's a scene in episode 3 in which Justin (a cute blonde boy) is trying to get Brian (sexy, but brutally honest) to notice him. They had already had very good sex in the first two episodes, but Brian is the type of guy who sleeps with a person once, then moves onto someone new. Anyway, Brian is on the dance floor dancing with not one, but TWO hunks and isn't giving Justin another thought. Justin is standing up on this platform type thing with his friend Daphne, who makes the comments "Is he gonna do it with BOTH of them?" Just responds with "He can do anything he wants." Justin then walks down the stairs, removes his shirt, and makes his way onto the dance floor. (All the time 'Lets Hear it for the Boy' is playing in the background.)
There's also a large amount of glitter flying. Anyway, Justin ends up getting Brian, and it was awesome! Why am I even typing all this, here's a video clip. Just skip through to 1:20 and ignore the scene where Ted is about to go into a coma.

Anyway, that scene got me hooked. I was then held hostage by my television for the rest of disks 1-3. (Thats 11 episodes) and couldn't wait the two days till the next disks arrived. (I'm not completely crazy, I left my room to eat, shower, and go to the movies with my friends.)

The show gets better as it goes. Brian and Justin have lots more things happen (because Brian can't seem to commit to anything, let alone a relationship) But at the end of Season 1 Brian goes to Justins prom with him (Did I mention that Justin was only 17 when they met, and Brians 28?) and then Justin gets bashed in the skull by a homo-hating idiot. (Who happened to let Justin give him a hand job earlier in the season) The show then ends with Brian sobbing (which is a big deal, he never cries.) in the waiting room.

I can't wait for season 2 now, but Its probably good that it'll have to wait till Wednesday (because Netfix is exchanged through the mail which does not run on Sunday, which throws stuff off) because I have homework to do this weekend.

Anyway, check the show out, it rocks.

Road Trip!

Ok so, tonight I went on a road trip to Point Pleasant West Virginia. Now, granted, its not a long drive at all, but it totally still counts. A few friends and myself got really bored and decided to go see the Mothman statue and the Silver Bridge. The ride there was really fun, we stopped at Wendys and got some food, and listened to music the whole way there.

When we got there we were looking around for the statue, we almost missed it, but got lucky when Millie saw it. We parked the car, got out, took some pictures with the statue (it's 12 feet tall and John asked it to marry him), looked around the town a bit, then got back in the car to head home. On the way back we drove across the Silver Bridge. I took some footage for YouTube, but my camera ate some of it and the rest is too dark, maybe I'll put some of it in as extra stuff after my next video.

Overall I had a great time. My friends are crazy and I love spending time with them. Here are some pictures, enjoy! (They're a bit large, so if you want to see the whole thing just click on the photo.)

This is Adriene, Millie, John, and Vanessa standing around the statue:

This is Me, Millie, and John standing around it.

This one is Me, Millie, John, and Vanessa somewhere (I'm not sure where) in the town.

Safe Sex

Found this video on YouTube and it's very sad, but has a good message.

Gotta Love That Scooby Gang!

I have been watching A LOT of Buffy the Vampire Slayer here lately. I've watched almost all the episodes (this show was my absolute favorite thing ever back when it was first on the air). For some reason though, I never watched the final season. Maybe I was just in denial that it could ever end or something, I don't know, anyway, the other day I decided I wanted to know how it ended. I also decided that instead of just watching the final season and being done with it, I would watch every episodes from start to finish. There are a lot of episodes. I'm currently watching Season 3, it's the one where Faith shows up and causes problems by going all evil.

There are a few things I've noticed while taking my trip down memory lane:

The corny jokes are all still just as funny as they were the first time I heard them.

Don't get used to any cute boys because they always end up getting killed or being some type of evil monster.

The girl who played Kendra did a very bad accent.

All the sad stuff is still sad even though you know it's coming.

Spike is still sexy.

Anyway, I have a lot to do today, reading assignment for English, stupid question thingy for EDF, and I need to do laundry and clean my room a bit.

Peace out!

Were The World Mine

Ok so, a couple months back I was browsing around the blog on Out.com and they had this entry about a gay movie/musical called 'Were the World Mine' and as soon as I saw the trailer I wanted to see it so badly! Of course it wasn't coming anywhere near me (living in this part of the world sucks.) and there was no chance I would get to see it before it got released on DVD. After finding this out, I sort of just forgot about it, until yesterday. For some reason it just popped into my head to see if there was any news on the DVD release date front. Looks like it'll be out this Spring or sometime in summer.

I don't know why I'm writing about it, but I'm going to share the trailer with you all because I can.

Now, as long as I'm on the subject of movies, I recently watched a short film called 'James.' about a young man who thinks he might be gay. It was really good, and sad. If you are so inclined then you can get it for FREE from itunes.

Also, I finally got to see the 2008 Doctor Who Christmas Special and it was GREAT. I"m going to miss David SOOO BADLY when he goes. I saw an interview his replacement Matt Smith gave and I'm very interested in seeing where he takes the Doctor.

Besides that, not much going on right now. I've been watching American Idol and its just the same as it always has been only with a fourth judge. I really like her.

The last thing I'm going to mention is that I spent some time watching old episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer today and it still rocks just as much as it did back in the day.

Cold Much?!

God it was cold outside today. Of course, me being me, I spent a very large portion of the day outside. I walked from Pullman Square to the Cook Eye Center with my friend Kirstin. I waited in the waiting room while she had her appointment. You can meet some pretty interesting people in waiting rooms.

I kept hoping some cute guy would come in and sit near me or something, sparks would fly, and we'd have this whirlwind romance. I know, very unrealistic of me. I was having one of those days. Instead I got to meet two very old ladies, they were nice ladies, but I still would have liked my cute guy. (Preferably a sexy nerd type guy with nice glasses.)

Anyway, besides that I went to Starbucks today, twice. (I know, shame on me, but like I said, it was COLD.) I also went to see 'My Bloody Valentine' in 3D. It wasn't a very good movie, but the 3D elements made it worth the money. To hear more about that check out my latest YouTube video.

Things That Bother Me

I'm going to start this blog by letting everyone know that 'Unusual You' by Britney Spears is like THE BEST song to listen to when it's really REALLY cold outside and you have to walk to class.

While I'm on the subject of Britney Spears I'm going to go ahead and say that I don't like the fact that Jive picked 'If U Seek Amy' for the fourth single from 'Circus.' Sure, it's a great song, and the fact that she pretty much spells out 'fuck' is going to get some people interested. I just like 'Unusual You' way better, and I think that it would be a good song for winter time.

Anyway, on to the point. I really don't like it when people who have more than 10 items go through the '10 items or less' lane at Wal-Mart. I mean, the whole point of the lane is so people who aren't buying lots and lots of things can get checked out faster. I don't mind when people who have like 11 items go in the line, its one over, no big deal. But when Miss-Pink shirt-Yellow-PJ-bottoms is at Wal-Mart buying 900 dollars worth of groceries which equals up to like a million items, she has no business in the 10 items or less lane. That's all I'm saying.

If you're a gay guy, I want to know who your favorite Spice Girl is. Here's why: My favorite Spice Girl is Ginger Spice. Almost every gay guy I know likes Ginger Spice. I just want to know if I just know a lot of people with similar tastes in Spice Girls, or if Ginger happens to be like the universal best Spice Girl according to gay men.

Anyway, yay for pointless blogs!
