Re: Live performances of Chris in past and now.

His comment about not liking kissing as it’s too intimate is particularly surreal. I know I'm probably opening a can of worms with this, but that attitude about kissing being "too intimate" is actually a surprisingly common view among some gay men. There are many guys who regard kissing as far more...

Anyone in the States still waiting for theirs?
Yes, I'm still waiting for mine. In fact, I received an email several days ago that, if I understood it correctly, indicated that it hadn't even shipped yet. Not happy. But I guess that's what I get for not shelling out for "expedited" delivery.

Re: Interesting article about Dainton

The first guy in that photo (far left) looks as though he * may * be Peter Andreas (Chris's former longtime roommate, who died of AIDS-related illness in 1994. I could be wrong, however. (And I have no idea when that photo was taken.) What do you think? If it is him, it may be one of the best photos...

Re: Final results of poll on rating Hotspot songs

i can't remember, but were the votes 0-10, or 1-10, because the results were 0-10. The range for the ratings in that poll were 0-10. I always use the 0-10 range for rating songs, whereas for rating music videos the range is 1-5. Why the difference? Beats me. It's just the way I've always done it, a...
