VIVA LA VIDA.

Upon my first ever listen to the entire new Coldplay album, I have to say it is quite an odd piece of work. Not as instantly catchy as their last effort, but I sense this new CD will definitely grow on me. The band claims this new album was inspired by Hispanic culture; I'm excited too, because I was finally able to get tickets last night to their upcoming concert here in L.A. in July! YEEHA! Yes, I'll be really close to the stage and near an aisle, which is always cool in case I need to get out quick for whatever reason. I know, I'm kind of claustrophobic like that, and hopefully my beloved bud Loren Soth will come with me. Should be a pretty good show and fun to sing-a-long to Coldplay's many memorable catchy tunes! Their bass player Guy Berryman is so hot by the way! DAMN!

My co-worker and I were discussing gay icons yesterday: Madonna, Liza, Judy, Barbra, Bette Davis, etc. At the karaoke bar Monday night, I had the nerve to tell three older dudes there that I wasn't that big a fan of Barbra Streisand, and they scoffed at me for even saying such a thing. I mean, I do recognize the Jewess has a nice voice and all, but I'm just not into her musak. It's kind of boring really. They stood there and attempted to put down The Beatles, but whatever! They were just being bitchy little queens who luckily also happen to be decent guys whom I do consider friends when I see them there. Imagine trying to put down The Beatles! HOW??? It's an almost impossible task to put down rock/pop music's greatest most successful geniuses! LOLOLOLOL! Well, infallible they weren't, but STILL!

I've been watching lots of Bette Davis movies lately, but now I'm ready to get into Judy Garland's work. And Barbra's one and only son Jason Gould with actor Elliot has been on my mind lately too. I hope he is doing o.k. Last I heard he had the HIV and had been a bit ill. Poor guy. I have heard many people say he is a very nice guy, and that Barbra adores him, but is very protective of his public image and quite dominating. He rarely takes pictures, but here's a clip of him some 15 years ago or so.

To Jason, wherever you may be...

I'd take the Beatles over all of those ladies. Bob Dylan for that matter. Babs was fun in her early career when she was just plain weird and adventurous before playing it safe and self indulgent. I saw Jason's directorial/starring debut a few years back at the LGBT festival in which is was not exactly reclusive and bared his butt. It was also bizarre seeing him go on a date with a blond jock and acting exactly like his mom in "The Way We Were". "Do you think I'm pretty? Do you really, really, think so?"

I too can be inspired by the hispanic culture. I have many songs in me just about that subject matter, but most are so politically incorrect I doubt they would ever be written.
