Hump Our Coverage
posted by July 26 at 14:49 PMon
Eli is carefully tracking the Hillary v. Obama dustup; Josh and Erica are debating the mayor’s housing policies; Jen is writing movingly about two artists that committed suicide (or was it muuuuurrrrderrrrr?); Dominic is slapping around congressional Dems in the Washington delegation for a boneheaded vote on medical marijuana; and Jonathan Golob is debunking that obesity-is-contageous study.
Me? I’m writing “Savage Love”—or I’m supposed to be writing “Savage Love.” The cover of the current issue of The Stranger, which is sitting on my desk, keeps distracting me. Mostly because I’m hoping that everyone pictured on the cover—with the exception of, uh, that wee baby in the lower left-hand corner—is making a film for HUMP!, the Stranger’s annual amateur and locally produced porn festival. But I’m especially hoping that these three guys are making a film for HUMP!
And this guy too, if he’s a guy and not one of those sexy boyish lesbians that make me feel conflicted and confused…
Ecce Homo shall start discussion in the comments thread attached to this post concerning the appalling inappropriateness of this post, detailing my deficiencies as a parent and a person. Other commenters will then weigh in, decrying my ageism, my looksism, my anti-fat bigotry, and my promotion of the “unattainable beauty standards” that these guys somehow managed to attain.
But it will be worth it if these guys—all of them photographed at Pony last weekend—will see this post and decide, hey, we’re gonna enter HUMP.
