It only takes ten dollars.


I'm raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

It's a pretty big deal.

I'm supporting this organization because the "gay community" has proven itself to be extremely effective at raising funds for its own causes, like political organizations and AIDS research and care--but we don't have to support our own causes all the time. As I'm a part of that "community," I think we should contribute to the world around us.

But it doesn't matter what your reason is. Please, go to this page:

On that page you can make a donation. In Miami, $20 will buy you about 2 drinks. And everyone I know has more than that. If we can afford overpriced liquor, we can afford giving to the leukemia & lymphoma society. And I promise, as much fun as those drinks are, this will feel better.

If you've never given money to a charity before, now is your chance. This is a recording. Please wait for the beep. Thank you.

I hope you have your TiVos ready. We need to discuss a few things about American Idol.

1) They obviously wanted Jordin to win, when they picked that song. It's like Season 1 all over again, with poor Justin Guarini trying to belt out A Moment Like This. The whole thing is Season 1...awkward big-boned girl who sings loud vs. cute guy with a boy-band voice who dances well and has a big smile and weird hair.

2) If/when Jordin wins, she'll make a really good album, I promise. Someome just needs to tell her what to do.

3) If Paula tripped on her dog, when she fell why didn't she hurt her hands?

4) If you didn't get the same interview where you live: here in Miami there was a bit with Anthony Federov, from seasons ago (remember the blonde skinny guy?). Apparently he's on Broadway in The Fantasticks. Great great show, and I'm sure he's fab in it.

Okay, TiVo-related business:

5) Go to Jordin singing that final song, when they cut to the audience and show Chris Richardson, Phil Stacey, and Melinda Doolittle listening. Look at the expression on Melinda's face. I cannot believe that bitch is up there instead of me. Vicious.

6) Blake has the biggest bubble-butt in Idol history. Seriously, look at his 2nd song. His waistband literally doesn't touch his back, because his pants are just hanging off his butt. And NOTICE, IN SONG 3, he has the front of his shirt out--but the back is tucked in. He's giving it a clear view. Goin' for the gay vote, methinks.

...and on a final note:

7) Did Randy dance on the Janet Jackston Rhythm Nation tour with that jacket?
