As a pretty typical gay-homosexual I like to have good skin. Even coming from the beardy point of view, your cheeks and neck are still out there for the world to see and judge. As boy I would lather my mothers flowery, brightly colored products all over my face and practice french kissing my hand. Even at a young age, I knew the smell wasn’t to my liking, I wanted something that said, ” I am man , hear me roar” but with nice skin. Ursa skin products for men was brought to attention just this morning and I am ready to consume the whole line. Take a look men. Did you notice the awesome label?

Men’s Skin 101
You may have noticed: men’s facial skin is different to women’s skin. It’s thicker, oilier, has more pores and sweats more. And of course men have much tougher, faster-growing hair follicles or ‘whiskers’. All this creates a unique set of challenges best met by regular use of skincare products designed specifically for men.
These two bands go together like a pot and a parma, but more importantly you’re unlikely to spot finer chin topiary anywhere in this city Head down to Northcote Social Club on Friday, to catch Adelaide’s The Beards pulling tunes from their third fuzz-promoting album – which spawned the smash hit ‘You Should Consider Having Sex With a Bearded Man’.
Sydney’s shadowy Gay Paris, meanwhile, sport the sort of beards that should be twirled thoughtfully while contemplating a broken string – and make sartorial elegance seem like something you should put in your pipe and smoke.
Eat glitter you dirt bag. Being attacked by what are being called barbarians who cover Marcus Bachman is nothing less than awesome. It is most definitely not the first time he has had gay objects shoved in his mouth (says my gaydar).
A flashmob of over 100 “barbarians” approached one of Marcus Bachmann’s religious counseling clinics today in protest of the harmful ex-gay therapy they offer. Staff locked the horde out, so in lieu of confronting the actual Bachmann, the barbarians performed a ritual “glitter baptism” on “Marcus Bachmann,” as they continued to chant, “you can’t pray away the gay, baby I was born this way!” A smaller group similarly protested the cliniclast month. The presidential candidate’s husband has previously compared homosexuals to“barbarians” who “need to be educated” and “disciplined.” (via thinkprogress.org)
Soldier opts to us the internet to gain strength to come out of the closet as a gay man and discusses his views on DADT. He proclaims he is from the bible belt.

He was nervous and stressed out after video he posted of a band that came through his camp that performed Adele’s Rolling in the Deep. after posting the video he woke up the following morning to find the video had 17,000 views. He knew he would have something explaining to do after the video went viral.
In a cheering voice, “Who’s got pride? Oakland Does!!” At this point in pride season, some of us may be all prided out! But I am sure you can squeeze a little more out for our brothers and sisters on Oak-town. Mike Enders

There is a desire deep in the pit of my stomach for these. Classic and sturdy and not going anywhere fast. Red Wing adds crepe soles for spongy goodness and has to beneficial for your ankle joints as you hop around the city. This coming year I am going to pull off my new look, Nerd. Mike Enders

PAT ROBERTSON: NOT TO GET ‘WEIRD,’ BUT THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT CRACKS ARE A SIGN FROM GOD
Evangelist Pat Robertson this week suggested that cracks in the Washington Monument from Tuesday’s earthquake are a sign from God. Before making his point, he had a disclaimer: he doesn’t want to “get weird” when he talks about the Monument as “a symbol of America’s power.
Adviser to Romney and Brown Mocks It Gets Better on Twitter
Following recent criticism toward Brown, the only Republican member of the Massachusetts congressional delegation, for not making an It Gets Better video, the “CrazyKhazei” feed said, “I promise to devote all my time in office to making gay videos. Shame on Scott Brown for focusing on jobs!” Another tweet from July 31 read, “Just got back from sunny California. Thanks to all the elitists there for donating to my campaign.
Antiretroviral medications have allowed HIVers to live longer and manage their viral load, but the drugs also sometimes have harmful, toxic side effects. A recent example comes from new research by the Institute of Genetic Medicine at the U.K.’s Newcastle University, which indicates that the older antiretrovirals are primary culprits in premature aging.

NEW YORK CLERK: SAME-SEX MARRIAGE COULD LEAD TO BESTIALITY
Focus on the Family’s Citizen Link recently caught up with Ledyard, NY town clerk Rose Marie Belforti, who has said she will not sign same-sex marriage licenses because it would “grieve the Holy Spirit that resides in my heart.” She told Citizen Link that she has gay friends, but she’s worried that when people do genealogical research, they won’t know the sex (or species) of the couple: “We know what a bride is, we know what a groom is—but if we choose to be a “spouse,” does that even limit (marriage) to a human being? Do you know what I’m saying?”

‘The Daily Show’ Correspondents Explain The Tea Party (VIDEO)
On Tuesday Jon Stewart’s correspondents broke down the two-party system for us, and today we bring you their examination of one of the most widely known third parties: The Tea Party. Watch as Jason Jones, Samantha Bee, Wyatt Cenac, Aasif Mandvi and John Oliver go over the motivation, tactics and fashion choices of Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin’s prideful followers. For example, Cenac explains how the name was conceived (a 4th grade understanding of American history) and Jones tells us what he thinks of when he hears the term (hint: it has to do with his five-year-old daughter).
I don’t care about Apple stock. (Well, I do think it will be the first trillion dollar company). Or about his business successes. That’s boring. The only thing that matters to me is how Steve Jobs became the greatest artist that ever lived. You only get to be an artist like that by turning everything in your life upside down, by making horrible, ugly, mistakes, by doing things so differently that people will never be able to figure you out. By failing, cheating, lying, having everyone hate you, and coming out the other side with a little bit more wisdom than the rest.
CNN) – If you’re a woman contemplating surgery on your female parts, you’ll find plenty of ladies chatting and blogging away about their experiences, often on websites adorned with pink ribbons. But if you’re a man considering male surgery there’s not so much out there. There’s no ribbon for, say, penis surgery, and comparatively few men trading stories and sharing advice. “Women are much more engaged with their health,” says Dr. Dennis Pessis, president-elect of the American Urological Association. “It’s gotten better in the past 15 years, but still, men don’t always seek out the best treatments for themselves.”

Apes, other animals at Washington’s National Zoo sensed earthquake seconds before shaking started
They may be apes, but they knew the East Coast earthquake was about to hit before their more evolved human cousins realized what was happening. Five to 10 seconds before the earth shook Tuesday, an orangutan at the National Zoo in Washington named Kyle and a gorilla named Kojo stopped foraging and raced to the top of the tree-like structure in their enclosure, zoo officials reported Wednesday.
