So with regard to the fear associated with turning my will and life over to the care of God as I understand God– let me think…

I don’t know that I have much fear of that. Or maybe I’m terrified of it. Organized religion sure put the hurting on me personally and has hurt my people (and many other groups of people) in ways that almost defy description. I’m also pretty afraid of “group think.”
Okay, here’s one: I’m afraid people who don’t believe in God will judge me. Crap! That’s hard to admit. Two women in particular jump immediately to mind, both science-minded atheists. I love both of them– want for both of them to think well of me. I don’t know of another gay man who has spent so much of his time and energy trying to make women like him! What the fuck? I can’t possibly imagine where that paradigm was set!

A sidebar to that one– the not wanting my atheist friends to think I’m stupid is that I don’t want to think I’m stupid. And the version of belief in God that hurt me so badly all throughout my life is, well, a stupid ideology if I am going to risk being insensitive and tonight, I am. That’s kind of hard to understand but I don’t want to be the stupid one now. Does that make sense?

Any other fears associated with “turning my will and my life over to God?” Hmmm… well, there might be some fear there because I don’t exactly know what the nature of God is. Since I renounce any and all human writing as the definitive word on the existence and nature of God, I can’t really go to the Qur’an or the Torah or the Christian Bible to lay it out for me. I believe those books were written by fallible humans. So that sort of creates a little problem with going with others’ conceptions of God doesn’t it? So I won’t.

On several days during this past week, I set the timer and listed (stream of consciousness– always a treat with my twisted brian) “pros of living in LA” vs “pros of living in NYC” to help move me more towards a decision about where I’m headed next. I’ll think I have the definitive answer based on spiritual guidance and then BAM! The other city will make some viable bid– something will happen that will indicate that the other city is the right choice.

Tonight Max told me he’d prefer that I move to LA. There’s that.

Pros of living in LA:

The men are fucking gorgeous. I can find work as an actor. I can get famous. That veterans’ theatre org is there. That boy with the big uncut cock is there– the one that reminded me of _____– the one that needs to get and stay sober– the one I can’t date (can’t remember his name right now). My beautiful apartment there costs much less that a comparable one in New York. My TV and film fame will also help me produce my plays in New York and elsewhere. Large support network. Good meetings. Year-round flip-flops. It’s more relaxed there. Cleaner. I always feel good when I’m in California. (Okay maybe not always.) More dog friendly. Tom Supa. Scotch. Spanky. Herndon. I can work in TV. I can go to the beach. I can ride motorcycle around. I have good memories form there. I can drive my big sexy truck. I can live in Hollywood. Slammer. The Eagle.

The pros of living in New York:

The theatre is there (more than LA). I can also work in film and TV from there. I’ve always wanted to live there. (edited vitriol) It’s harder. I love the subway. I love seasons. Luke Denton. Meetings. The museums! No driving. Statue of Liberty. Hot guys. I’m closer to theatre producers. A million plays to chose from. The history and romance of the city. New York Yankees. Rob _______. (edited vitriol) I love New York. Central Park. Street vendors. So many people hate it. The people are friendlier. Gotham Knights. Roosevelt Island. I have a better chance of pushing _______ in front of a subway there. Fuck ______. Fuck that motherfucker. (edited vitriol) I want my New York. (edited vitriol)

It’s goddamn nice there and the people like me there. I wanna be RICH and it’s a good goddamn place for a writer/actor to get RICH! And with all that money I can buy a place in New York and go there as much as I want but it’s easier for me to get RICH as a writer and an actor in LA. I reckon. The weather is nice and I look great with a tan. There are great meetings there and great gyms. It’s not as hard to live there, it’s not as hard to get around and it’s cleaner! The apartment I could get in LA is nicer on what I have in the way of money right now. Is that true? I ain’t got money to go to either place in fact! But I can get a place twice as nice and twice as big for half the price of one I’d get in New York. I can see myself outside Gold’s gym on Cole and drinking one of those icy protein shakes and going to the Gold’s downtown sometimes and I know _________ and I know ______ and I know ________ and I know __________ and I want to be a FAMOUS actor and make shit-tons of money and greenlight my own projects and be famouser and famouser and change people’s minds about things through film and TV and it’s easier to get into film and TV in LA and how the fuck am I going to get RICH in New York when the actors who ma–


I love New York. I like walking around the different parts of New York. I like WALKING. I love being on the subway and smelling people and being in close physical proximity to all those hot guys in the course of the day. The subway is a great opportunity to meet hot guys– one of them might be my husband. In New York, I can go to a lot of great theatre and I do love to go to live theatre and I even like to ACT in live theatre but am I going to get the roles that I want? If I was a TV– oh wait, that’s LA again. But maybe not because there’s also a lot of TV shot in New York but I do really love New York and I don’t want Adam to win and Central Park is great and I don’t want to lose Luke Denton as a friend and when I’m not there I never hear from him so is he really a friend anyway? That’s a shitty thing to say but for reals… Okay, when I– who are my close friends in New York. I wanna apartment Midtown West or UWS with a sick view of the Hudson, close to everything. New York will be great town to live in when I’m RICH and I wanna be RICH! New York has big companies too that I might could– you never know who you’re gonna meet in New York, y’know? It’s like you’ll just– OH MY GOD the subway musicians. How the FUCK could I live without subway musicians. New York is friendlier.

See y’all tomorrow.
