Phil Dancing In The Grocery Store , In a Subway Car etc

by Accidental Bear

Take art to the street. Free spirited hips and dance moves galore, Phil has put one huge smile on my face. I am surprised at the lack of response as he prances around. His free styles moves look absolutely contagious. In a world full of angst and natural disaster I welcome these little pockets of joy. Thanks Phil!

You know when you’re waiting (a long time) for the subway to pull into the station and just the right song comes through your headphones? You know the one that makes you feel like you wanna dance a mess all through that subway car and all over the platform? Well that’s what happened here and I was lucky enough to meet up with some amazing dancers to help me out!

The songs you hear are Kylie Minogue‘s “Get Outta My Way” and at the end “Better Than Today”.

The dancers are Toronto’s very own ILL NANA/DiverseCity Dance Company and they’re beautiful. They’re a super sexy, queer positive crew who “representing the super queeroe’s and real humans in all of us.”

They also teach dance and perform all over the place, learn more here:http://illnana-dcdc.com

San Franciscos Baby-boom of High-End Health Food Stores

by Accidental Bear

Mollie Stones, Whole Foods , Trader Joes , etc are popping up everywhere these days in San Francisco neighborhoods. I am usually 100%  for these yummy specialty grocery stores. I look forward  to my occasional trips to Traders Joe, a treat, a pat on my back and reward myself with a bag of treats( I’m a TOTAL SUCKER for cool or “healthy” packaging). Now that these type grocery stores are becoming COMMON, will they loose their flare?

Sir Elton Covered for YOUR Protection

by Accidental Bear

I told myself I wasn’t going to use works like fuck, cunt and so on on my blog. But some time I cannot resist. The owners of this store putting these “family shield” covers over Elton and hubby while they hold their brand new off the shelf baby are ASSHOLES. And while I’m at it Fuck You Arkansas ! That really sums it up. No debate needed. I mean, Elton wasn’t even wearing anything offensively gay or hideous ( this time) .

Can Elton John‘s Baby Hurt You?

Update: The shields have been taken down at the store, according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, which spoke to Harps corporate executive assistant Marty Yarborough. She told GLAAD that the shields were placed over the covers because some of the customers complained. Brittany, a worker at the store, confirmed that the shields were taken down this morning.

A Harps grocery store in Arkansas censored an Us Weekly cover featuring new dads Elton John and David Furnish with their son, Zachary.

A Harps shopper named Jennifer posted a photo of the move to censor the cover at the Mountain Home, Ark., store on Twitter. It shows the issue of Us Weekly with a “family shield” to “protect young Harps shoppers” from seeing the image on the cover, typically reserved for sexual or violent images on magazines like Maxim or Playboy.

The manager at the store said there was no comment, and a call to Harps’ headquarters in Springfield, Ark., has not been returned.

Harps, founded in 1930, has 64 stores in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.
