Trevor Project Honors Actor

by Accidental Bear

The Trevor Project, founded in 1998, is devoted to increasing acceptance and preventing suicide among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. Its fund-raiser may also be one of the few in New York City where several pairs of men’s 2xist underwear were up for silent auction.

The first thing being celebrated was the 21-year-old actor Daniel Radcliffe, currently starring in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” on Broadway and soon to appear in movie theaters in the final installment of the Harry Potter films, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2.” The second was the right to gay marriage in New York.

Let’s start with Mr. Radcliffe, who a few years ago, lent his name to the organization and made a public-service announcement on its behalf. MORE

The Quentin Tarantino Toe-Sucking Sex Email That Will Haunt Your Dreams

by Accidental Bear

I mean, I like to chew on my own toe nails while I watch Jeopardy and eat my TV dinner. Don’t you? Whether this story is fact or fiction I don’t care. Quentin races through my blood and tickles all my sensations no matter what he does. His Jay Leno skin doesn’t even bother me. If this alleged toe sucking fetish is true Quentin, I love you all the more because you are no a cookie cutter. AB

Feeding the Gays; New Addition to Accidental Bear

by Accidental Bear

I needed to add a section on Accidental Bear that made no sense, was gratuitous and an excuse to post artfully taken sexy pics and inconceivable, unthinkable,unimaginable, unconvincing, far-fetched, dubious, implausible, improbable, unrealistic and  unbelievable stories, videos and pictures. I guess that we could also call this section, Formerly Known as Fluff.

Swedish Preschool Bans GenderA public preschool in a liberal part of Stockholm has created an environment where gendered pronouns are not used, the children are referred to as “friends” instead of “boys and girls,” and toys are deliberately gender neutral. Sounds crazy! It also sounds like a conservative’s worst fucking nightmare. From the New York Daily News:

Michelle Obama Mum on Marriage If Michelle Obama supports gay marriage, she’s not saying so publicly.The first lady’s communications director, Kristina Schake, told Politico today that “Mrs. Obama has never made any public statements about same-sex marriage.”

San Francisco Street Sheets; What the Hell Are They? Who, What, and Why gets Answered

by Accidental Bear

While tramping around the streets of San Francisco, whether in the Castro, Downtown, Civic Center, The Haight and all other neighborhoods, it is most likely at the most awkward of times, you have been approached by what looks like a possible homeless person asking/shouting, “Street Sheet. Spare Money or whatever you can. Street Sheet.” Like a well weathered street-walker, I am numb to these distractions and pounce past the, “Street Sheets” calls with little of no acknowledgment.

The STREET SHEET is a publication of the Coalition on Homelessness, San Francisco. The Coalition on Homelessness was formed in 1987 to foster the active participation of homeless and low-income San Francisco residents and front-line staff in the struggle for economic and social justice. Through an integrated approach that combines outreach, peer support, leadership development, public education, advocacy, and community organizing, the COH works to defend homeless and low-income people from attacks on their rights and their persons, while advocating for permanent solutions to homelessness that take into account not only poverty’s devastating effects, but also its root causes.

If You’re Arrested This Weekend, Do It Whitey Bulger’s Way

by Accidental Bear

The next time you get thrown in the slammer forget your grandmothers useless advice about wearing clean underwear. When busted for whatever illegal activity of your choice you hope to look as good as Whitey Bulger in this classic, actual mug shot from 1953. Fashionably un-aware  Bulger gets him a spread in Esquire Magazine  in 2011.

(via Esquire.com)

If the New York Times wanted to avoid burnishing the legend of Whitey Bulger, who was wanted for 19 counts of murder until the FBI arrested him on Wednesday, they picked the wrong front-page photograph: a mug shot from 1953 that may be the most stylish diptych in the history of criminality. Bulger is 23-years-old. He’s wearing a collared shirt and a wide-checked zip-up flannel coat. In profile, he looks just like James Dean. The crazy thing is the shot was taken when James Dean was still a nobody, working in TV. On the right, staring straight at the Boston Police cameraman, he’s inexplicably wearing an outsize fedora. As a whole, the mug shot is a strange amalgam of Jim Stark and Roger Sterling. He’s the rebel with a cause, the real tough from whom the Hollywood toughs were ripping off their style.

Non-intelectual Summer Reading ‘Wrestling the Hulk’ : No Brain Required

by Accidental Bear

As a young man I was obsessed with Hulk Hogan for a selected period of my youth. Growing up in a litter of 4 brothers our bedrooms were often turned into WWF platforms. I even cuddled my 12″ tall Hulk Hogan-strechy doll to sleep at night. Little did I know at that moment he was my daddy figure. Some of us, with Hogan always on our radar were slightly embarrassed when we saw his family public shame produced in form of a reality show. We were also shocked to see his family life come tumbling down and hit rock bottom. His ex-wife  Linda Hogan picks up the pieces and moves on with her life and is trying to make some money in a tell all book. I am embarrassed to say that I am intrigued. This will be one of my guilty pleasures of the summer.

Bob Mould Reads from His “See a Little Light : The Trail of Rage and Melody” |SF CA June 28

by Accidental Bear

The perfect reason to call in sick today. I will write you a doctor’s note.


Bob Mould is perhaps best known as the founder of Hüsker Dü, one of the most influential and enduring bands to emerge from the punk scene of the 1980s. Hüsker Dü was part of a movement that included such seminal bands as label mates Black Flag and the Meat Puppets, and influenced and inspired up-and-comers such as Nirvana, Soul Asylum, the Pixies and countless other musicians.
