You don’t have to talk with or give SPONGE BATHS to the homeless ,but you are needed to count. Unfortunately our homeless problem is out of control. You will need to count real high (more than hands , feet, and body appendages).
City Still Seeking Volunteers to Count the Homeless
The city’s annual Homeless Count is coming up this week but CBS5 reports today that the project is still short about 150 volunteers. Last year’s census of our city’s vibrant, address-free population counted about 6,500 homeless folks. The population count determines how much money the city will receive from the federal government to help these folks out and the Local Homeless Coordinating Board is looking for Enumerators, Team Leaders, Dispatch Center Volunteers and Data Entry Volunteers. Some of you already make it a personal hobby to note anyone sitting/lying along your route to work, so you’re already qualified. SFGov.org has the volunteer details.
Ok, do I have your attention? Man, I’m totally jonesing for some green tea, lavendar rose hip-tree bark bath salt, Im ithcing, I need Bad
Drug Alert: Fancy Bath Salts Might be the New Meth
A new drug is hitting the streets from the Deep South to California and it’s got some pretty terrifying side effects. According to the New York Daily News, some of those fancy bath salts you use for aromatic, tub-based relaxation may contain the stimulants mephedrone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MPDV) and reportedly give an even more psychotic meth-like high when snorted, injected or smoked.
The home spa supplies make for a readily available drug with relaxing-sounding street names like “Bliss”, “White Lightning” and “Vanilla Sky“. Don’t be fooled though, when used in a manner not intended by the manufacturer (meaning: putting them up your nose instead of in your tub) they cause the opposite of relaxation: suicidal tendencies, intense hallucinations and paranoia. One prolific drug users who had tried “every drug from heroin to crack” got so high on the bath salts that he attempted to slit his face with a skinning knife. Other users and witnesses have reported psychotic episodes lasting for three days after use.
Although this is the first we’re hearing of the impending Bath Salt epidemic, California Poison Control System has responded to “a handful of calls” about the substances since last October. In Louisiana, where the state poison control center got over 125 calls in the last few months of 2010, the state has already outlawed the sale of the substances by way of emergency order.

Just because you are queer as a $2 bill doesn’t mean you have good taste, can design yourself out of a K-hole or superior in the garment world, but Tom Ford says so. Lets think about this. I mean, we (queers) are light in our loafers, ANAL about detail and sensitive to the color blind ( I can pull anything out of my ass), right? But to DEBUNK this idea of Toms, take a stroll through San Franciscos Castro District or down Christopher Street in New York and you will see (CODE RED) total fashion disasters. Hello, gay brother the 90′s wants its style back and the 80s is sadly missing its hair ( but not in a ironic way).
Tom Ford: Gay Designers Are Superior
“I think I detach the physical from the spiritual. It’s my business to make a woman or a man beautiful, and I’m working with a model in a fitting, and I’ve objectified them to the point that they become an object,” Ford told artist John Currin, whose wife, Rachel Feinstein, recently modeled in an intimate show of Tom Ford’s return to women’s wear design.
“They’re something that I’m modeling or shaping or sculpting, but I’m very aware that even though I make them physically beautiful, their soul and personality and character is somewhat detached from that,” Ford said. “It’s great when you have a combination of the two — that’s what makes a true beauty. Some people are physically beautiful but yet they’re completely uninteresting, and thus they’re not beautiful. I detach the two. … That’s why I think gay men make better designers.”

I stand strong believing that if a “straight” guy does “gay for pay” porn he HAS to at least be the slightest amount of gay to 1, even toy with the idea of gay porn, 2 be able to keep his peter raging to penetrate the oh so willing recipients. A 100% straight man would turn to panhandling before he would get his bum rear ended. But PLEASE keeping using these “gay 4 pay” actors, becaue if you snoop at my computers history I am a fan a such shenanigans !
Gay-for-Pay Porn Star’s Wife Talks
Gay-for-pay porn star Reese Rideout, also known as Nick Dent, and his wife Becki talk about their comfort level with his career choice, saying that the decision comes down to money, in the new U.K. issue of Marie Claire.
Boy Culture reports on the couple’s interview, where Nick is featured under the pseudonym Reece Jacobs.
“Now, his focus is gay porn, which, despite what people think, I’m more comfortable with,” said Becki, who like Nick is from Oregon. “I can accept him being with other men more easily than other women. He got into it after he was offered $1,500 simply to masturbate on a gay website called randyblue.com. Straight porn only pays men $300 a scene, but gay porn pays up to five times as much. I don’t care what people think. Reece isn’t gay and I’m just happy he isn’t filming with other women.”
Nick added, “I can have sex at work without thinking about the other person because I’m genuinely straight. But gay sex is tough if you’re straight. The first time I shot a scene with another man, it was oral sex, and I couldn’t keep it up because I wasn’t turned on. Now I watch footage of women or think about Becki when I’m filming. Working in gay porn is better all round. I get paid more and treated with respect.”

Look out, Colonel Sanders. Flavor Flav has a fried chicken restaurant, and he’s coming for you – starting in a small Iowa city.
The sight of Flav cooking at his own restaurant apparently won’t be a one-time thing. He told the newspaper he intends to work at the Clinton location now and then to help draw customers. (Good news for the fledgling operation: If his trademark attire is any indication, he should have no trouble arriving to work on time.)
“You’re going to find me in here working. … You’re going to catch me in here seasoning up my chicken, flouring up my chicken, frying up my chicken. And not only that, but coming out here and serving my chicken to people,” he said.
