I will always love you,
Conan the Barbarian.

#1 Find your own poem with the comedy stylings of Teri Yaki and Dusty and their Twisted Trivia every Wednesday night at Cocktail.
#2Danny Kopelson over at Center On Halsted wrote me that Harry Hamlin appeared on our 100th issue's cover because he and his then wife Nicolette Sheridan hosted the AIDS Foundation of Chicago's Not Just Song & Dance gala. Also appearing that year were Kenny G, Karen Mason & Brian Lasser, Concetta Tomei, CGMC, Windy City Gay Chorus, Joseph Holmes Chicago Dance Theatre, plus many more. He produced the event when he was working at AFC.
Thanks for the info, Danny!
#3 Stare very closely at this bejeweled crotch without blinking for 60 seconds. Now, close your eyes very tight and wait 10 additional seconds. Do you see the face of Jesus? Well, then you're obviously a schizophrenic. I caught this snapshot at Hydrate where many were gathered after having seen this young, new artist named Britney Spears. I haven't heard of Miss Spears but, judging by the fever pitch of the crowd, she's gonna go real far!
#4 Here's an adaptation of another poem I "found" on the intertubes:
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord I am reincarnated as a slice of pizza on Bear Night at Touché.
Jesus Christ, he's hot!
