Victoria Jackson writes a response to “Somewhere in New Mexico”

                                                                           Somewhere in New Mexico As wacky and fringe as Victoria Jackson is, I really can’t dislike her. In fact, my heart kind of goes out to her. I believe she really truly believes that stuff she says she believes. And I don’t think, in reality, she does any true harm –... Read More

The No-Sides (unreleased songs): The Rapture

I wrote this after talking to a couple of nice true believers on a Rapture Ready forum. I don’t know why I decided that the song should have an early 1970s “Up With People” vibe, but it does. What if I’m wrong And what if you’re right? And what if there is an intelligent design? When the day comes and judgment begins Will I be left behind? But what if I’m right And... Read More

I forgot. Here is the most lesbian song in my catalog: “I Saw a Cop”   I SAW A COP Well I saw a cop and she pulled me over Well I saw a cop and she pulled me over She asked for my ID and proof of ownership She had on dark aviators She had on dark aviators Her pants were tucked inside her leather boots I was goin’ really fast Shoulda known it couldn’t last Shoulda known when everyone slowed down Well I saw a cop and she pulled me over Well I saw a cop and she... Read More

Gayish Back Catalog Songs for National Coming Out Day! Once in a while, maybe once a month, I’ll type my name on the Twitter to see what folks have to say. It’s not really the best use of time, and it can be a gamble for those of thin skin. However, it’s totally worth it when I read a tweet where someone mentions that the (ye olde) “I Kissed a Girl”... Read More
