Care to clue us in on what this dastardly villain has done?

Posted by Fnarf | October 14, 2008 12:33 PM

He/she/it's on Livejournal? They must be slime.

Might want to link directly to the post...

What a wanker.

Posted by Fnarf | October 14, 2008 12:40 PM

I'm appalled that you're wearing a hat 1) indoors and 2) at the *table*. Sweet lord, Dan.

Posted by Balt-O-Matt | October 14, 2008 12:47 PM

No self pictures in his icons page = he's fat and ugly or old and sad.

You're rich, you're influential, you're cute (even in this blurry thing with your NorthFace very Seattle hooded shell and butch hat), you're read, and you're loved.

Let's point and laugh at this loser banzai

Posted by Derek | October 14, 2008 12:49 PM

Clearly this person is sexually attracted to you. How about a column on this kind of fetish?

Posted by Cat in Chicago | October 14, 2008 12:49 PM

Yes, definitely some Christian repressed crush going on here. Banzai hearts Dan.

Posted by Nixor | October 14, 2008 12:52 PM

oh man, I love Ballet! #17 ftw!

it also happens to be the place where I typically first crack open that week's Stranger.

this is feeling like a LJ posting. ack!

Posted by stinkbug | October 14, 2008 12:56 PM

totally off-topic, but those ads for Hump are killing me. Far too distracting and yummy (except the clown mask).

Posted by robo | October 14, 2008 12:57 PM

I've been eating out John Bailo for 15 years, and I agree with Maximillian: Go eat your curds and whey, Dan Savage!

Posted by Chalupa Alcatraz-Bailo | October 14, 2008 12:58 PM

why do you keep following him?

Posted by cochise. | October 14, 2008 1:04 PM

Why does this loser hate you so????

Posted by belle absente | October 14, 2008 1:04 PM

dan, i have to agree with balt-o-matt re: hat indoors. just. not. done.

also, i loathe these "churches" that clothe themselves in hipster garb to pass under the radar. just so douche-y. can we go back to the days when christianist assholes weren't in bands, didn't attend shows, or frequent bars, let alone hang out on capitol hill? i mean, i stay out of their "world". i don't go to the cheesecake factory, bothell or mars hill. please stay out of my world. and if you are compelled to come to a show or eat at ballet, at least shut the hell up about it not complying to your narrow-minded world view.

Posted by chris | October 14, 2008 1:05 PM

He's almost as maniacally dedicated as the "Kurt Cobain Was Murdered" guy - maybe you could hook them up, Dan?

Posted by ReverendZ | October 14, 2008 1:09 PM

I love their spring rolls.

Why are you following him, Dan? Who is this person? Please, lunch ended like 10 minutes ago. You can't expect me to find out on my own. I'm too drunk to fingerfuck google right now.

I have to admit, "Go Away, Dan Savage, Go Away" has a catchy ring. Would be a great children's book title. Sort of a reverse "Where's Waldo".

Would he rather run into Dr. Ruth at lunch? Is it sex columnists, or just you he hates? Besides himself, of course.

Posted by MJ | October 14, 2008 1:15 PM

Look for significance of soup in the "Milk and Toby" story in today's USA Today Newspaper.

Posted by danielbennettkieneker | October 14, 2008 1:17 PM

Sounds a little obsessive, if you ask me.

Posted by oscar | October 14, 2008 1:19 PM


Posted by Laural | October 14, 2008 1:24 PM

I don't see the problem. If you sat next to me, I'd buy your lunch.

Posted by Charm | October 14, 2008 1:28 PM

That blog makes my head heard. I don't get the theme, or focus, or why the fuck he's using the word banzai.

More importantly, did Ballet do a big remodel or management change in the last 10 years? I tried it a few times in the 90's and thought it was terrible. Chances are if it's still there, something got better.

Posted by Dougsf | October 14, 2008 1:29 PM

Dude has a whole tag, icon, etc. devoted to you on his LiveJournal. He probably types these posts one-handed.

Posted by Greg | October 14, 2008 1:37 PM

If you sat next to me, I wouldn't buy you lunch. I would probably vomit due to the sickly wetness that the anuses of your retarded little fanboys drip like tears from the cloaca of an angel, stinking up da joint.

You suck and your fans are retarded.

Every wonder if Hitler liked the people that worshiped him?

Yup, you suck.

Maybe I would just spit in your food when you went to the can or to refill yer sody pop. It's hard to tell these days.

Posted by ecce homo | October 14, 2008 1:38 PM

@6 & @15, there are still people like you? there are really hat rules?

Posted by cochise. | October 14, 2008 1:41 PM

All your ballet are belong to us. I would have that at least that much would be obvious, even to a religulous nutter.

Posted by kinaidos | October 14, 2008 1:45 PM

@27 There is only one clothing rule now: Never be unintentionally badly dressed.

Posted by inkweary | October 14, 2008 1:50 PM

Who says "beer is my love language" really?

Oh Dan, please come to Pittsburgh again so I can randomly see you out to lunch. I can see how seeing someone could make your day, but ruin it?

Posted by ofelia | October 14, 2008 1:50 PM

I thought I'd give the guy the benefit of the doubt and started to read through his blog but all of a sudden I had the urge to...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

snort...where am I?

Posted by michael strangeways | October 14, 2008 1:51 PM


We'd rather not moderate your comments, but off-topic, gratuitously inflammatory, threatening, or otherwise inappropriate remarks may be removed, and repeat offenders may be banned from commenting. We never censor comments based on ideology. Thanks to all who add to the conversation on Slog.

Posted by Comment Deleted | October 14, 2008 1:57 PM

his church is Grace Seattle, part of the PCA.

no wonder Dan makes him twitchy.

Dan, i think you should walk your dog near the church on Sundays.

Posted by ironymaiden | October 14, 2008 1:58 PM

Yeah, the lj guy is a god squad member but, to give him credit, he doesn't really say why he wants Dan to go away. For lj guy, Dan is some kind of mild menace. In the comic strip version, lj guy would turn corner, see Dan walking his way and exclaim a catchphrase in the final panel. He's just being silly, no?

Posted by jseattle | October 14, 2008 2:10 PM

Awe, when I lived in Seattle I'd see you, Dan, at Ballet all the frickin time. It always made me REALLY happy, and I'd have to control myself to not shout "I love you!" whenever you walked in the door. Awe.

Posted by catnextdoor | October 14, 2008 2:37 PM

The crucial question of whether Dan followed (as per an earlier Slog debate) the "proper LJ etiquette" and emailed the user in question about linking to his blog remains unanswered!!

Posted by christopher h | October 14, 2008 3:07 PM

Aww Dan,

All the fanboys are cumming out to say hi.

How adorable.

Aren't you just swelling with pride? All because you know how to describe sodomy in a way that appeals to the disaffected high school student. How quaint.

Posted by ecce homo | October 14, 2008 3:07 PM

A veritable who's who eats at Ballet, it's great. Best non-thai-place curry EVAR.

Posted by AJ | October 14, 2008 3:10 PM


just like Than Bros.

eat more, fat boy!

Posted by M.S.G. | October 14, 2008 3:18 PM

Ecce Homo = Bonzai

That said, dude is lame. And why does god boy have a link to USE on his page? Gross.

Also, dear god dude (aka bonzai, aka ecce) please leave Seattle, or at the very least Capitol Hill.

Where is your proof of MSG usage?

Posted by stinkbug | October 14, 2008 3:55 PM


My guess is that I have lived here a hell of a lot longer than you have.

Plus, I lived on capital hill for so long, I probably know a couple of you assholes personally. However, the young gay contingent that has moved in with the stick up their ass ain't my scene.

I met Dan on more than a few occasions back in the mid 90's, a few of which I have mentioned. But they were all when he still liked dressing in drag.

Posted by ecce homo | October 14, 2008 4:15 PM


A long time, like...9 years?!?

Do you also like beer, rain and water? LOLZ.

Posted by Original Monique | October 14, 2008 4:19 PM

#43 Like since the late 80's.

You? How long you been out of the Renton Highlands sista?


Posted by ecce homo | October 14, 2008 4:34 PM

@44: Oh Ecce...I guess you can call me 'sista' or use words like 'aight' as long as this is 1993 and I am dressed like the girls from TLC.


Posted by Original Monique | October 14, 2008 4:42 PM



Personally, FWIW, I've lived on Capitol Hill on and off since May 1988,and while it's long been, unfortunately, a magnet for haters, it's also long been, fundamentally, a home for lovers.

So how the heck have you survived here so long?

Just askin'.

Posted by Cookie W. Monster | October 14, 2008 4:49 PM

Sorry, OM, I meant, of course, @42.


Posted by Cookie W. Monster | October 14, 2008 4:53 PM

Wow... I had no idea that a misspelling could cause you so much joy!

You should read my other posts cause I don't be spell checkin and I could care less..

So go fuk yerself.

And I ain't no hater. I just think Dan gives fags a bad name. He DEFINATELY give people the WRONG impression about gay parents, and his life choices given his "family" are extremely questionable.

So toss my salad.

Posted by ecce homo | October 14, 2008 6:21 PM

@44: He says "aight" because he's dressed like the girls from TLC circa 1993.

And hating on the Renton Highlands? Understandable, but way to out your roots, sweetie.

Posted by Jessica | October 14, 2008 6:24 PM
Posted by OH, I oh! | October 14, 2008 6:40 PM

Oh man. This reminds me of when I was I was a member of a choir at a small Texas university. There was this openly gay guy named Jonathan and this other dude named Matt who made a point of vociferously HATING Jonathan at every possible opportunity. Guess who's out of the closet now and is totally embarrassed that he was such a dick in college?!

Maybe Banzai will come out one day, or maybe he'll stay in and clandestinely fondle boys on church-sponsored camping trips until someone squeals. Either way, doesn't it make you feel good to know that you're past all that self-hating bullshit?

Posted by Emily | October 14, 2008 7:10 PM

heh...there is a comment on that guy's hate page where someone is wondering who dan is...and they ask if he is the guy from a talk show called SAVAGE NATION and continues to say, you know the really conservative guy?! lol Just thought that was funny. Dan have you ever been confused for a really conservative talk show host???
