Diamond Rings is Neither Gay or Straight. What do you Label That?

by Accidental Bear

At first I thought we were talking about diamond rings, then I realized we are talking about Diamond Rings.

“When he’s onstage performing as Diamond Rings, the one-man synth-pop project he started two years ago, John O’Regan wears biker jackets, leggings, lipstick and basketball shoes. The Canadian singer draws on a rich tradition of androgynous musicians, and while his look recalls David BowieBoy George and maybe even Grace Jones, he often comes across in interviews more like Morrissey, skirting questions about sexuality.

If Morrissey’s coyness on the subject reflects his private nature — surprising, perhaps, given his songwriting — and desire to preserve a degree of mystery, O’Regan can relate. At the same time, he says his refusal to self-identify as gay or straight is more the product of uncertainty and not feeling like he has to pick a side.”

There Oughta Be a Law: Californians Getting 725 New Ones in 2011

by Accidental Bear
Cops and robbers are kids games and real life for those who have chosen that path. Whats the deal with “citizens arrest? Is it for REAL? This is what I found :
” In California, a person, who is not a law official or police officer, can make a misdemeanor arrest if he witnesses a crime. For example, if a store clerk witnesses a juvenille stealing a radio from the store where he works, he can make a citizen’s arrest until authorities arrive. Based on the information provided by the store clerk (his eyewitness) account, the police will remove the juvenille from the store and escort him to the police station. This is considered a citizen’s arrest and can extend to larger, more severe crimes.

Trans-fats are thing of the past in certain food facilities, for example. And insurance companies can’t charge men and women different rates for the same coverage.

Californians will welcome 725 new laws on Jan. 1. Here’s a glance at some of the laws taking effect when you ring in the new year:


  • AB 119 prevents insurance companies from charging different rates for men and women for identical coverage.
  • SB 782 prevents landlords from evicting tenants who are victims of domestic or sexual abuse or stalking.
  • AB 1844—informally known as Chelsea’s Law and authored by local Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher—will increase penalties, parole provisions and oversight of sex offenders, including a “one-strike, life-without-parole penalty” for some. 
  • AB 1871 allows people to lease out their cars when they are not being used—alleviating the need to purchase additional insurance.
  • AB 537 will make food stamps an acceptable form of payment at farmers markets through an EBT process.
  • SB 1411 makes it a misdemeanor to maliciously impersonate someone via a social media outlet or through e-mails.
  • SB 1317 allows the state to slap parents with a $2,000 fine if their K-8 child misses more than 10 percent of the school year without a valid excuse. It also allows the state to punish parents with up to a year in prison for the misdemeanor.
  • AB 715 makes a change to the California Green Building Standards code. The change will require new California buildings to be energy efficient.
  • SB 1449 makes the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana an infraction with a penalty of a $100 fine.
  • AB 12 allows foster youth to acquire state services until the age of 21.
  • SB 1399 allows California to medically parole state prison inmates with physical incapacitating conditions and ultimately shifts some of the cost of care to the federal government.
  • AB 97 bans the use of trans-fats in food facilities.

Eyes On: Eric Himan

by Accidental Bear

Eric Himan, I want to be your baby daddy or at least die trying. Ok, now that I have that out of my system lets get down and dirty talking about Erics’ larger than mountains voice ( does that make sense? Who cares, you get my drift). I first saw Eric perform live here in San Francisco at a tiny bar called Moby Dicks in the Castro. I thought to myself this guy should be filling stadiums! I was mesmerized by his voice and knocked over by his good looks. The set was mixed with originals songs. playful covers and charming banter.


Eric Himan is so grassroots, his face is green. Though his music tells a different story. Without the help of record labels, booking agents, publicists, or management, Eric Himan is touring to more places, getting great press coverage, and still has time to run his record label, Thumbcrown Records, home to his six studio albums. He just released his newest (selling out of his first shipment before the drop date), Resonate, and has five years of solid touring in the US under his belt. Magazines in the LGBT community took notice right away (The Advocate, OUT Magazine, Instinct) and newspapers (such as the Boston Herald, Pittsburgh-Post Gazette, and Phoenix New Times) interviewed him to find out what makes this work horse stay in the game despite obstacles such as major label artists, rooms that are booked by big agencies, and finding his audience.

Eric and the Adams

Eric, a ten year veteran in the music industry with 6 full-length albums under his belt, joins his experience and music with the Adams’ explosive creativity. After a year of rehearsal and scattered gigs (Austin’s SXSW, Chicago’s Market Days and Tulsa’s Pride Block Party), Eric and the Adams are ready to share their Indie Folk Rock originals, peppering them with cover songs – eclectically stretching from REM to Katy Perry, Maroon 5 and many more. As a solo acoustic artist, Eric has toured the country non-stop for the past five years building a grassroots audience the way many of his influences such as Ani DiFranco did. He released five studio cds adding RESONATE, his sixth cd, to the list this past May. Directly following this, he was nominated by MTV’s LOGO Channel “NewNowNext Awards”. This nomination has been one of many accolades received since the beginning of his career back in 2001 when he began touring the college circuit. He has appeared in the pages of OUT Magazine, The Advocate, Genre, Instinct, and Curve. He also has been featured in the Fender Guitars catalogue of which he has received an endorsement. The band’s first video, Little Boy Blue, was recently chosen for NewNowNext Top 10 Videos of 2008 show for MTV’s Logo Channel.

They just released their debut CD (available on iTunes, Rhapsody, and more) December of 2009. Past accomplishments include an invite to this past year’s Dfest Conference and Festival this summer (headlined by The Black Crowes) and 2010’s Red Gorilla Music Fest (alongside SXSW), Eric was named on a list of 40 under 40 LGBT pioneers in The Advocate (alongside Rachel Maddow and Milk’s writer, Dustin Lance Black), the band was named on Urban Tulsa Weekly’s Hot 100 in January 2010, and Eric has licensed songs to The Hills, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, The Real World, and more.
