Damn The Man, Save The Howard Brown Health Center!

Help! The Howard Brown Health Center, which has been serving the LGBT community since the ‘80s, needs donations, baaaaad. Two top officials were dismissed earlier this year for financial mismanagement of grant funds, and now the new CEO, Jamal Edwards, has regretfully announced that the center needs to raise $500K by Jan. 1, or it will have to close its doors. Noooooo! The clinic has been a cornerstone of AIDS research and gay outreach in Chicago. In fact, Howard Brown is currently conducting a decades-long research program, the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study, and it would be a cryin’ shame for humanity if it had to give up on the work now.

Sarah Palin Fights The Cookie War

Yesterday, Sarah Palin brought cookies to an appearance at Plumstead Christian School. No, she wasn’t trying to bribe the kids for votes if she runs in 2012. She was protesting big government. “I heard that there’s a debate going on in Pennsylvania over whether public schools were going to ban sweets,” she explained, referring to a set of nutrition guidelines the Pennsylvania Board of Education is considering for school parties. Only, she got the details wrong—what the Board is actually debating is encouraging parents to offer only one sweet per kid at parties and include fruits and vegetables as well. “I wanted these kids to bring home the idea to their parents for discussion. Who should be deciding what I eat? Should it be government or should it be parents? It should be the parents.” Keep reading »

Old-School Wednesday: N*Sync Says “Bye Bye Bye”

Before he was starring in “The Social Network” — and even before he was bringing sexy (and fedoras) back — Justin Timberlake used to be in a little boy band with a few other friends. Perhaps you remember them? N*Sync ruled the charts, and our hearts, with their poppy dance numbers, sweet ballads and perfectly choreographed dance numbers. In this video for the band’s 2000 hit song, “Bye Bye Bye,” Justin and the boys lash out against former manager (and creepy dude) Lou Perlman—the song and video a metaphor for no longer being under the thumb of their controlling ex-manager. Deep! [YouTube] Keep reading »
