Cowboy Bits

Brokeback Mountain is finally playing in a theatre near me. It's been playing since last Friday but I still haven't seen it. Why?
Wasn't I cute?
Am I the only one who adores NPR's Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me? The show cracks me up.
"Un Beso Is Not a Kiss" is one of my favorite poems by Francisco X. Alarcón .
Goodbye, AD.
I wonder if Rebecca Loudon knows of this blog that showcases some stunning illustrations and drawings?
The cover of Karla Kelsey's first book is gorgeous.
Thank G-d for Homos
un beso
is not just
a kiss--
un beso is
more dangerous
even fatal

Worst Author Photo Ever!

Ben, my darling, is that nautical rope around your neck? Is your chin mooning us? The cleft of your chin is SO deep someone could ride it bareback. You know what I mean?
Un Cowboy Is Not a Vaquero.

Ay, qué cute.

All the hullabaloo over Brokeback mountain has me wondering if Annie Proulx ever heard the Pansy Division Song...

Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other--
What did you think those saddles and boots was about?
There’s many a cowboy who don’t understand the way that he feels towards his brother
Inside every cowboy there's a lady who'd love to slip out.

Yes, you WERE cute.

Still are.

Why HAVEN'T you gone and seen Brokeback yet?

Killer diller link. (bibliodyssey)

I've always meant to ask you: What ARE you looking at in your "author" (or blog) photograph?
