Sand + box + gays = vagina jokes.

Eric H., Monday, 28 November 2011 17:00 (nine years ago) link

well, we can't set up a Toolbox.

Dr Morbius, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:03 (nine years ago) link

Stevie and I were talking about how "are you a feminist" is a good litmus test question for potential boyfriends.

Sandbox Jesse, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:29 (nine years ago) link

I am not speaking for Stevie, just something he said made me think of it. Anyway, if a guy doesn't identify as a feminist, it's a huge minus.

Sandbox Jesse, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:31 (nine years ago) link

oh boy.

Dr Morbius, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:31 (nine years ago) link

There's nothing more resistible than a man trying to sound like Alan Alda fishing for applause on Donahue in 1982.

Dr Morbius, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:34 (nine years ago) link

Alan Alda's perm phase?

Lord Sotosyn, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:35 (nine years ago) link

LOL, with Morbs on this one.

Eric H., Monday, 28 November 2011 17:36 (nine years ago) link

Is that what you read in what I wrote?

Sandbox Jesse, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:38 (nine years ago) link

my god I just saw said photo.

Lord Sotosyn, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:38 (nine years ago) link

The focus for me is, if the guy is in a hurry to distance himself from feminism, he's probably not the one for me (fatty).

Sandbox Jesse, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:39 (nine years ago) link

Oh, that ("photo") reminds me!

Here is the pic of the guy who announces to the world that he gives BJs in The Hole

Sandbox Jesse, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:40 (nine years ago) link

Ideally, "the one for me" wouldn't make much point of steering the conversation toward how much of a feminist he is.

Eric H., Monday, 28 November 2011 17:40 (nine years ago) link

And it seems like he was being serious about that bruise being the result of a dick-whipping....

Sandbox Jesse, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:40 (nine years ago) link

Feminism shows itself in deeds though, at least that's how I see it.

Lord Sotosyn, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:41 (nine years ago) link

Believing in equal rights for women is quite possible to manage without using "ist" words. xxxxxxp

a photo of Alda?

Dr Morbius, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:42 (nine years ago) link

Anyway, this whole thing came up in a conversation about OKC profile making, which is a whole different beast from meeting in outmoded ways and being like "Hi, I'm Jesse and I'm a feminist!"

Sandbox Jesse, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:44 (nine years ago) link

Speaking of which, I was preternaturally socially capable this weekend. It felt like I was taken over by a politician. I met a guy from a previous El stop whose name I remembered, welcomed Michiganders to town, and generally "made connections." I need to circle back with the people I met and get some notes on how to do that again.

Sandbox Jesse, Monday, 28 November 2011 17:48 (nine years ago) link

The "ist" thing is just a matter of self-presentation. You may not believe it but I don't think you're a bad person, Jesse.

A well-connected Brooklyn florist took me and two ladies to Justin Bond's show at Joe's Pub last night, everything comped! JB did a few Joni and Kate covers I was entirely unfamiliar with, so bad on me, eh? He also did the least prominent Ronee Blakely song from Nashville.

Dr Morbius, Monday, 28 November 2011 18:34 (nine years ago) link

longest weekend ever

(donna btw)

silvana mangano, Monday, 28 November 2011 19:03 (nine years ago) link

ending w/ Occupy LA?

Dr Morbius, Monday, 28 November 2011 19:11 (nine years ago) link

lol, just wrote about it on the occupy thread

also i did a lot of things i probably shouldn't write about here

silvana mangano, Monday, 28 November 2011 19:19 (nine years ago) link

*applauds*

Dr Morbius, Monday, 28 November 2011 19:42 (nine years ago) link

It never occurred to me that you might think I was a bad person.

The weather in these parts is bumming me out. Gray, chilly, spitting drizzle, sun setting at 3:30.

This morning my Gmail theme showed snow piling up on my Inbox, but outside the air was empty.

We carry on.

Sandbox Jesse, Monday, 28 November 2011 21:04 (nine years ago) link

I do spit the drizzle you guys?

Pablo, Monday, 28 November 2011 22:36 (nine years ago) link

I had one of the best first dates ever Sunday (like 2am diner good) and then the next day we met up for lunch and ate shrimp burritos and talked about gender performativity and made out for like 10 minutes, and then we're hanging out Thursday night too. He's super intelligent and witty and has glasses a giant red beard; I'm trying not to get my hopes up but it's sorta difficult not to.

Stevie :-D, Tuesday, 29 November 2011 15:25 (nine years ago) link

that sounds nice!

surm, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 06:08 (nine years ago) link

this sandbox thing confuses me. I also don't know what spit the drizzle means, though, so I'm just generally confused.

Alex in MTL, btw.

lexferenda, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 19:22 (nine years ago) link

What is confusing you about the sandbox?

When I said spitting drizzle, I just meant that there was spotty, irregular precipitation that fell short of being straight-up drizzle. That is all I know it to mean.

Sandbox Jesse, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 19:34 (nine years ago) link

hi gays!

Lord Sotosyn, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 19:36 (nine years ago) link

I am a little confused in this sandbox b/c of new user names. I mean, who the f is "Lord Sotosyn"? I'm guessing buffandmaxsmom, but who knows.

Also, hi to you both.

Sandbox Jesse, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 19:43 (nine years ago) link

It's Alfred, eighteenth descendant of the greatest English poet laureate.

Lord Sotosyn, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 19:44 (nine years ago) link

Should probably have not had so much whiskey on a Wednesday night.

Eric H., Thursday, 1 December 2011 04:38 (nine years ago) link

Fuck it. I don't work tomorrow and don't love anyone. *pours another*

Eric H., Thursday, 1 December 2011 04:39 (nine years ago) link

Quick, say something scandalous!

Stevie :-D, Thursday, 1 December 2011 05:09 (nine years ago) link

Almost updated my FB with status: "Fully ready to enter my long-deferred hot mess period. Suggestions appreciated."

Damn my grandma for friending me.

Eric H., Thursday, 1 December 2011 05:10 (nine years ago) link

i had a lot (3) of cocktails tonight

silvana mangano, Thursday, 1 December 2011 08:54 (nine years ago) link

Good morning!

Eric, I had the same trouble Tuesday morning, after spending Monday night consoling my BFF (women problems, mais oui).

Lord Sotosyn, Thursday, 1 December 2011 10:56 (nine years ago) link

i am very sad, i just want to cry all day in bed but i have to go to work and look professional

this year has all but taken it out of me, i don't know what to do anymore

surm, Thursday, 1 December 2011 11:47 (nine years ago) link

geez surm, that's a bummer to hear. But there's always something to be done, kid.

Dr Morbius, Thursday, 1 December 2011 12:39 (nine years ago) link

you know what, i did do something. i googled. and i have discovered a new terminology for my psychological condition. so that's something.

surm, Thursday, 1 December 2011 12:48 (nine years ago) link

we love you, surm.

and Eric, it's not Wed night if you're off the next day.

I had 2 beers and a shot at my friend's variety/monologues show, where I sat next to gayble TV star Cole Escola as he prepared his bit, and the last act of the night resulted in some onstage accusations of homophobia. Drama!

Dr Morbius, Thursday, 1 December 2011 13:18 (nine years ago) link

i just contacted a "renowned" specialist for help - and now i'm going to smoke a cigarette

surm, Thursday, 1 December 2011 13:19 (nine years ago) link

You can do it, surm.

oPal, Thursday, 1 December 2011 13:29 (nine years ago) link

:::thanks:::

surm, Thursday, 1 December 2011 13:33 (nine years ago) link

Surm you are a beautiful bouquet of flowers and if you ever need to talk baout stuff you got my info / don't hesitate.

This dude and I have either hung out or texted/IM'd each other every day since Sunday (when we met). He even biked like 3 miles to come visit me on my lunch break yesterday, and tonight we're gonna watch movies and I might cook him dinner and then we're going to some dance party. I think I'm smitten.

Stevie :-D, Thursday, 1 December 2011 13:45 (nine years ago) link

surm, we got your back.

Lord Sotosyn, Thursday, 1 December 2011 13:46 (nine years ago) link

Stevie, it sounds like I don't need to fwd you the info about the upcoming 'bearpig' event at the NY Eagle, then.

river wolf, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 17:32 (nine years ago) link

He's never made a great album. Buenas Noches From a Lonely Room has a killer first side and spotty second one. If There Was a Way comes closest but it's too long. This Time has all the huge radio hits, most of which are melodic and lyrical wonders but rather wooden in the rhythm dept ("A Thousand Miles From Nowhere," "Ain't That Lonely Yet").

Lord Sotosyn, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 17:36 (nine years ago) link

but, really, you can't go wrong with one of his comps or one of the first five records (all cheap and easy to find).

Lord Sotosyn, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 17:37 (nine years ago) link

this is my favourite yoakam song, yoakam is p indebted to buck owens in general and he says this song is specifically influenced by "tiger by the tail" the way it stops and starts

also his little outfits

judith, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 17:40 (nine years ago) link

saw him at Folk City in a snowstorm circa 1985, about 5 ppl in the joint

(and then later opening for Husker Du)

Dr Morbius, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 17:41 (nine years ago) link

thx dudes

river wolf, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 17:41 (nine years ago) link

I like the idea of turning the sandbox gay thread into a Yoakam one.

Lord Sotosyn, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 17:54 (nine years ago) link

i don't love it

judith, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 17:56 (nine years ago) link

anyway, i'm just saying that i only use Sliquid H20, because i hate everything about silicone lube. everything.

nuhnuhnuh, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 18:54 (nine years ago) link

He's an artist too; I was thinking abt how much you'd likely fancy him. We're very friendly and I'm worried it might lead to some level of tension...

Stevie :-D, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 22:33 (nine years ago) link

i would probably move out

judith, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 23:27 (nine years ago) link

But I just moved in! And he's like my new Philly gay bestie!

Stevie :-D, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 23:42 (nine years ago) link

i said I would. it would be silly for you to.

judith, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 23:47 (nine years ago) link

this wasn't so much advice as daydreaming.

judith, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 23:47 (nine years ago) link

You should at least go in for a nice shirts-off make-out before you leave.

Stevie :-D, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 23:52 (nine years ago) link

But he keeps mentioning over and over how he won't date people that are shorter or significantly younger than him, sorta the way closet cases keep mentioning over and over how they're straight.

Stevie :-D, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 23:54 (nine years ago) link

oh is he tall?

judith, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 23:56 (nine years ago) link

Like 5'10" give or take

Stevie :-D, Wednesday, 28 December 2011 00:06 (nine years ago) link

after living with someone for six months the sexual urge seems to dwindle (at least ime)

tanuki, Wednesday, 28 December 2011 00:18 (nine years ago) link

but I've seen aforementioned roomie and he is pretty (and likes cats!)

tanuki, Wednesday, 28 December 2011 00:19 (nine years ago) link

Have you been living w your man?

I've said it before, but the best sex I ever had was in LTRs. In the first one, even after 4 years, evenings and days off were unmitigated priapism time. Like skin-abrading f-fests.

Sandbox Jesse, Wednesday, 28 December 2011 00:23 (nine years ago) link

I've been sleeping over his house almost every night but not really living w him per se. And truth be told I have little desire to have sex with anyone else atm so roomie is rly nbd. Just glad I didn't move in like 6 months ago.

Stevie :-D, Wednesday, 28 December 2011 00:36 (nine years ago) link

same here — I get enough sex elsewhere that I don't feel the need to bone my roommates (which would just be weird)

how do you make that happen? school/stress/not-actually-living-together-but-may-as-well-be-given-how-often-we-see-each-other-or-sleep-over has been taking its toll.

lexferenda, Wednesday, 28 December 2011 05:30 (nine years ago) link

Well, we lived together and we were not very busy, so that certainly greased the skids, if you will lololaknfnsddf. But also, he had a very strong sex drive and for me, sex improves with familiarity. (I approach sex and music similarly: I don't like *new* music or romance or sex. They start to be really good after they're worn in and I'm comfortable with them. I absolutely hated the supposedly exciting thrills of new relationships.)

In the 2nd relationship it was similar, except that dude had some major baggage w/r/t sex, so things never flourished quite the same.

Anyway, for me it's like what people say about reading the Bible over and over and learning something each time.

So yeh, my advice is be me, I guess.

Sandbox Jesse, Wednesday, 28 December 2011 06:27 (nine years ago) link

Unless you were asking how to get the abrasions, in which case, just ditch the lube.

How many days after a period? Started by Tuomas in December 2011 (v-shasty), Wednesday, 28 December 2011 20:23 (nine years ago) link

Good morning!

Which store was the half head/half sex toys store, J?

Tonight I went to one of our city's fine woman-owned sex toy stores and bought my first grown-up adult toy. I was on the bus home with my gym bag and really, really didn't feel like going to the gym, so I made the bargain that I was either going to go to the fucking gym or buy a decent toy. It was not the most expensive one, but it still seemed $$$$, but I believe that you get what you pay for with these things. I certainly hope so, anyway.

It felt a little weird asking the cute lesbians (a couple, apparently) for assistance and information, but they were helpful and knowledgeable, despite their not having prostates (I assume).

Sandbox Jesse, Friday, 30 December 2011 01:35 (nine years ago) link

ummm it's on belmont, it's called "igor's dungeon" (lol)

How many days after a period? Started by Tuomas in December 2011 (v-shasty), Friday, 30 December 2011 02:03 (nine years ago) link

oh wow

Oh god that place. I went there once years ago and the owner (he said he was, anyway) let me have it with some over the top high pressure sales. I think I went there for poppers, and he was like, "NOW THIS HERE [$$$ brand], THAT'S TOP O' THE LINE RIGHT THERE, SEE? ONLY A COUPLE BUCKS MORE AND WORTH EVERY PENNY."

I tried to get away, but he kept selling at me, even hollering across the store at me when he was ringing up (and upselling) the bachelorette party ladies. When I went near the videos, he told me about the promo he was running. At the sex toys, he asked if I had any questions, and commented "NOW THAT ONE THERE, THAT'S REAL POPULAR" whenever I let my gaze linger on an item. Same thing at the novelty items and pipes.

God, that guy.

Dr Morbius, Friday, 30 December 2011 07:29 (nine years ago) link

We're getting into town the morning of Jan 3rd and we're around until the evening of Jan 6th, so if you guys decide to do something, I can either try to talk the boy into it, or bail on him for an hour or two to grab a drink.
