HBO Party: All Aboard

For the life of me, I can't seem to spell "Premiere" . . .

Anyway, saw the last preview of "All Aboard: Rosie's Family Cruise" with the director at the Museum of Fine Arts. The party was not particularly exciting . . . there was no one there my age, but the movie was interesting.

It was nice to see gay people in situations that were positive. All the people with families and kids. I mean, they really managed to find just about everyone for the ship ride.

So I don't think I'll be spoiling anything by revealing the plot: Rosie O'Donnell and her partner Kelly rent out a Cruise ship and fill it with gay and lesbian and transgender families. But the movie isn't really all about them, it's more about the people that ride with them.

Of course, when you've got that much love in a place, you also have that much hate. They're protested in the Bahamas by churches. I mean these are families, not just gay people. They have the straight daughter of a Lesbian walking by the protesters, holding up a v sign and they're screaming at her, and she walks by what looks to be a gay family holding a baby . . .

Because apparently, Christian Love means hating gays and their families, and anyone who respects them.

Not that there weren't problems on the boat, like the mother against gay marriage, or the jeweler that makes a faux pax, but it's the reception at the Bahamas. Well, now I know that I'm hated there. Good thing I know, I can plan my vacation plans accordingly.

Incidentally, there's drama at home again. Maybe I go more into that later.

    But I'm having a whale of a time!

    You have a riveting web log
    and undoubtedly must have
    atypical & quiescent potential
    for your intended readership.
    May I suggest that you do
    everything in your power to
    honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
    Designer/Architect as well
    as your revering audience.
    As soon as we acknowledge
    this Supreme Designer/Architect,
    Who has erected the beauteous
    fabric of the universe, our minds
    must necessarily be ravished with
    wonder at His infinate goodness,
    wisdom and power.

    Please remember to never
    restrict anyone's opportunities
    for ascertaining uninterrupted
    existence for their quintessence.

    There is a time for everything,
    a season for every activity
    under heaven. A time to be
    born and a time to die. A
    time to plant and a time to
    harvest. A time to kill and
    a time to heal. A time to
    tear down and a time to
    rebuild. A time to cry and
    a time to laugh. A time to
    grieve and a time to dance.
    A time to scatter stones
    and a time to gather stones.
    A time to embrace and a
    time to turn away. A time to
    search and a time to lose.
    A time to keep and a time to
    throw away. A time to tear
    and a time to mend. A time
    to be quiet and a time to
    speak up. A time to love
    and a time to hate. A time
    for war and a time for peace.

    Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

    P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
    that the common culture of my youth
    is gone for good. It was hollowed out
    by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
    then splintered beyond hope of repair
    by the emergence of the web-based
    technologies that so maximized and
    facilitated cultural choice as to make
    the broad-based offerings of the old
    mass media look bland and unchallenging
    by comparison."

    P.P.S. Here's some blogs that I found
    of interest
    as I negotiated my way
    through cyberspace:
