Another historic building in jeopardy. :-(

Robert Wilonsky of the Observer posted a blog about the Knights of Pythias Temple and the obvious disregard that Westdale Properties has for it.

Happy Birthday To Me! :)

For my birthday today we're officially moving to the gayborhood and I just can't begin to tell you how excited I am about it. The movers are due to arrive at 8:30 and B's going to be in charge of that while I'm working my little part time gig today. It's gonna be a good day, tater!!! :)

Observer Blog - Make Your Voice Heard!

Here's is a current story on the Dallas Observer blog worthy of response...Where's the Outrage if you are into Deep Ellum in any manner...

Just say no to liquid coal! :-(

Although its proponents claim that liquid coal is a cure-all to our nation's energy problems, the truth is that liquid coal is plagued with economical and environmental downsides from the time coal is mined until long after the liquid is burned.

Liquid coal releases almost double the global warming emissions per gallon as regular gasoline, making a hybrid filled with liquid coal as dirty as a Hummer H3 running on regular gas.

Liquid coal also requires huge amounts of water, and would lead to an over 40% increase in coal mining just to replace a mere 10% of our nation's transportation fuels. Proponents of liquid coal also want the government to funnel billions in subsidies and tax breaks to artificially create an entirely new industry. Liquid coal is arguably the dirtiest, most expensive energy gamble we could take.

So, if you agree with me that liquid coal is a Bad Deal for Global Warming - we can tell Congress to find clean solutions to our energy needs! Here's where: http:/…

I Got a Little Day Job. :)

I just realized that I forgot to blog about this and that's just not right. :-(

As of today I'm the new part time front desk, set up, and processor for a credit repair company. I got the gig through a friend of a friend and it should be the perfect thing since they know I'm still going to be doing real estate so I don't have to hide it. I'll be working Mon-Wed-Fri from 9a-5p and it's not much money but it'll be enough to cover our new rent which is a huge weight off my mind. Also, there's definitely something to be said for having a mindless job that I can do in my sleep.

Hopefully Zip will just get over themselves and realize that I can't live on no money and sometimes people have to do what they need to do and I'll be all set. The company policy is that you're not supposed to work for anyone but them, but I think that's fucked up when they don't pay me any kind of base. I'm not ready to move my license yet because I have too many…

Sounds like a win-win situation for everyone involved.

My buddy, Nick, and his comrades at Ranger Up have launched OPERATION GRIM - a plan to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project by getting Ranger Up's most popular model into Maxim. The whole thing is here with all the details and pictures of a UFC fighter and a rather attractive woman is at Operation Grim. Nick is asking people to send a note to Maxim to ask them to do a spread *snickering at the play on words* on the Ranger Up girl while also raising money for the WWP. You can send a note of your own or follow Nick's sample letter and fill in your name:

Dear Sir or Madame,
I am writing to inform you that private citizens who support the military community are strongly urging you to support OPERATION GRIM and PUT GRACE IN MAXIM in order to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project which supports badly wounded soldiers from the international war on terror. We are not asking for char…

Attention geeky types... :)

Brian emailed this link to me and I just can't resist blogging it...it's fairly high-end geeky shit so if you don't understand it, don't feel bad about yourself. ;-)

Great Weekend! :)

I had some seriously fun events this weekend and I gotta share.

Friday night Lil Bro took me to see Spam A Lot at Dallas Summer Musicals as an early birthday present. Oh my gawd, it was too funny! The first half wasn't as good as the second in my opinion because it was mostly just snippets of the Holy Grail and I've seen that movie SO many times that I was quoting along with the show. The second half absolutely made up for it and then some. I highly recommend seeing this show if you have the chance.

Saturday while B worked I got to spend the entire day reconnecting with Da Jules and hanging out with her. We went to the lake for Karla's 30th birthday event and chilled in the sun (yes, it's a miracle the sun actually came out...). We went and visited B at work and then the three of us went down to Ellum and saw a gallery opening at Kettle Art. We adjourned to the bars after and one of Da Jules new friends met up with us and hung out for the rest of the evening.

Getting Better All the Time. :)

I have great news: we found an apartment in Oak Lawn and our new lease starts on my birthday! The place is a little smaller than the one we have now but it's laid out really well and should be totally workable. We're actually planning to store most of our knick knacks so it doesn't get overwhelming. And now for the best part...it's walking distance from the strip. OHMIGAWD, I'm SO excited to be moving to the heart of the gayborhood!!! We're also just down the block from the community center so B might start doing some volunteer work.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!!

Equality Texas Mourns the Death of David Ritcheson

18-Year Old Victim Had Testified in April for Passage of Matthew Shepard Act

Austin, TX (July 2, 2007) - Equality Texas today mourns the death of David Ritcheson, the 18-year-old Spring, Texas teenager who had survived an April, 2006 brutal hate crime.

On April 22, 2006, Ritcheson was beaten nearly to death by self-professed Skinheads, who cut him, burned him, poured bleach over him, sodomized him with an outdoor umbrella pole and yelled anti-Hispanic slurs.

Last Novemer and December, Ritcheson sat in a courtroom in Harris County, Texas and faced his attackers for the first time as they went through their respective trials. Ritcheson's attackers eventually were convicted of aggravated sexual assault; one was given a life sentence, the other 90 years.

Less than three months ago, on April 17, 2007, David Ritcheson went to Washington, D.C. and testified before the House Judiciary Committee urging passage of the "Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007", also kn…
