C'mon, Dan. I expected that you would have better taste than that. Being into other dudes is one thing, but being into pansy-freaks is a whole different ballgame. It damages your credibility. And why exactly is this crap slog-worthy?

The boy on the left is the one that brightened my morning. But into pansy freaks? Guilty, I'm afraid. Always have been.

And this crap is Slog-worthy because I say so. Edit your own damn blog, TD.

Uber pansy.

I wake up to pictures of Anderson Cooper and Scooter Libby. Yum.

It's probably on the enemies list due to someone's disdain for the prices. $725 for a sweater? Even if I had the money to pay for that, I would feel like such a scumbag piece of shit for wearing it.

Cute boys, yadda, yadda, yadda...

Holy Crap! Did you catch those prices? $135 for a fucking tee shirt? A tee shirt? For real?

And you could fly to Hawaii for less than that sweatshirt costs.

*shakes head in utter amazement*

Somebody please buy Dan a $135 t-shirt that says, "PANSY FREAKS DRIVE ME CRAZY."

I think its a better idea that he pay for it himself.

Hell, Dan's enough of a celebrity - they'd probably give him the shirt for free, if it meant he'd wear it to public events and get his picture taken in it.

As someone who is not into fashion and actually has a grudge against it, why is a $725 dollar anything better than a $72.5 dollar thing if they look similar enough?

i just never got it and won't

You can't even use it to wash the car after it's worn out. The rhinestones would scratch.

This is my cue to launch into a defense of fashion, but I won't. You are either into it, or you aren't, you get it or you don't, much like everything else.

I will say this Bellevue Ave -- there are $725 sweaters that are are worth $725 and there are $725 sweaters that aren't worth close to that.

Honestly Dan, they look like anorexic girls. If you're going to call yourself gay, could you please ogle some actual *guys* sometime. Otherwise we're going to have to take away your queer membership card.

The one on the left sort of looks like my cousin when he was a little younger, if you squint...

If Dan was only into str8 acting frat boy A&F types you would slam him for that too. Bears and real men, bears and real men. Yeah, they're hot. But sissy boys need love too.

I'm so tired of people not getting that gender does not equal sexual orientation. Butch women, pansy freaks, femme bitches, bears, femme MTFs, butch FTMs, androgynous everybody... this is gender, people.

It has nothing to do with what parts of whom you put where.

Posted by bitch on heels | June 14, 2007 9:59 AM

but mark, is there ever a time where you wish you had bought $725 worth of many clothes instead of one clothing item?

Posted by Bellevue Ave | June 14, 2007 10:04 AM

Mr. Poe @ 3,

Scooter Libby yick. Anderson Cooper is cute, but closet cases are a total turn off.

May I humbly suggest out and proud Rick Dinihanian as an uber-fine dream gentleman?*session*id*key*=*session*id*val*

Umm, I'm kind of a collector. I'll spend a large amount of money on a really amazing piece (sweaters especially) that I'll be able to wear for years, but I buy inexpensive jeans, t-shirts, etc. Even if I had the money to buy "top shelf" all the time, I don't think I would -- jeans are a good example. There isn't a hell of a lot of difference between a $60 pair of jeans from The Gap and a $600 pair from John Galliano. The Galliano will be a slightly more interesting cut, but we're still talking about cotton denim fabric. Hardly a $500 plus difference. But when you're talking about a sweater (or tailored jacket, or shoes) there are a lot more variables that come into play. Materials, craftsmanship, etc.

Posted by Mark Mitchell | June 14, 2007 10:22 AM

Shit, I find price in jeans makes a hell of a difference for me ... if it's not cut exactly the way I like it, it looks like crap on me. Maybe it's different for women's jeans. Ladies?

Posted by Gloria | June 14, 2007 10:40 AM

Why is it that everyone must like the same kind of guy? When someone thinks someone is hot, and you don't think so, why does it bother you so much that you have to shoot them down? Some people like their eggs over hard, but if you don't like them that way, will you attempt to get them not to like it too? Some of you have got to stop trying to decide what other people like or dislike.

And for the record, I too am not into that look.

Posted by Andy | June 14, 2007 10:49 AM


Coop is not in the closet. He's in a contract. Duh.

Posted by Mr. Poe | June 14, 2007 10:51 AM

but at some point spending $300 on a pair of jeans thats only slighly better than a $100 pair of jeans doesnt make sense.

also whats the point of spending all that money on jeans when guys just wanna get them off you?

Posted by Bellevue Ave | June 14, 2007 11:00 AM

Man, I saw a website the other day with vintage t-shirts, and I believe the most expensive one I found was somewhere around 10,000 dollars.

Posted by Jordyn | June 14, 2007 11:07 AM

The day some skanky twink convinces me to buy a $725 dollar studded sweatshirt is the day I drink the hemlock.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | June 14, 2007 11:11 AM

I thought the one on the left was Martha Plimpton.
