UPDATE: Sean McCarthy just made me aware via this post that Carlin's last HBO special actually aired this past March.
Oh. And this is, uh, brilliant:
RIP, great one.

UPDATE: More kudos to my best boy Gabriel Croom who appeared in the Lion King scene with Whoopie! I missed the first half hour of the show because Adriana had to watch Caillou ($&*%) but you know, I'm a good Mom and I let my kid do pretty much whatever she wants... I only noticed his shining face inside his giraffe costume in this picture from the TONY Awards website. He's on the left:
Check out this post covering the time I took Adriana to see Gabe in the show.

The Main House:
I think the only thing gayer than a Sex and the City watercolor is this:
I love it when a joke comes to life.
Everyone at the place was so sweet and so fun, especially our new BFFs Trey and Brian who are such inspirations. They're both dancers (of course). Trey cuts hair and opens orphanages in Africa (for real!) and Brian is a choreographer, his most recent piece "Cake" having just played at the Joyce. (Here's the NYT review with a great pic!) There was much debauchery and good timeation. Here are pics of it getting retarded in there:
At a gay resort, even the trees have personality:
After all, nobody wants to deal with dead wood.
Thank you, Shawn*!

Thank you, Hillary.
And thank you to Rachel Sklar, whose Eat the Press analysis on HuffPo is incredible. Rachel's insight is so valuable because it is nuanced, heartfelt, intelligent and accessible all at the same time.
If you care about this historic primary and election season and/or feminism and/or a fair media, you must read:
What Does Hillary Want? That's Easy: Respect - commentary about Hill's New York "conciliatory speech" and why she deserved that moment. Gave me some new perspective about her achievements, though I still think she could have thrown Barack a bigger bone that night.
A Dream Deferred - coverage of Hillary's concession speech. This made me cry:
More young men than I would have expected — and all of them seemed to want
a photo with Terry McAuliffe, who threaded beaming through the crowd, stopping
to shake hands and pose with anyone who asked. "I love you, man," said one young
man. "I love you too," said Terry. "Keep fighting, everybody!"
And this brilliant/hilarious piece, Obama Fist-Bump Rocks The Nation! (There are a few typos in the piece, but it's very comprehensive. I can't believe how much coverage the bump got! Shit.)

I mean, I look at that cut and I think, "Wooooooaaaaaah!"
All I'm saying is, I have pretty much the exact same photo on my Driver's License. Is someone trying to play a trick on you, D? Cuz if the shadows on your shirt were any higher, the breasts they'd demarkate would make me think this show was starring Kate Clinton. And also - that smile? I gotta say, it looks a little demonic. We need the Church Lady, stat. And someone much better at Photoshop.
