Since I heard about there being a library in the Second Life virtual reality environment, I sent my avatar, Jfro Gyoza, to visit. I had fun visiting, but my poor spacial sense made it hard to move around. Maybe I have a strabismus and my stereo vision is defective. I can never see those Magic Eye thingies, either. Probably, though, I just need a new computer and a trackball mouse or game controller. Who knew that my lack of interest in 3rd-person video games could become a handicap, if this is the learning model of the future anyway.
The Advocate has suggested that the greatest (i.e. only good) reality show ever, Rupaul's Drag Race , have a drag king contestant. That's fine, but it would be much more entertaining to have a whole drag king competition. One of the best parts of Drag Race is seeing all the different types of queens compete: beauty queens, funny queens, conceptual queens, androgynous queens, scary queens, singing and dancing queens. I want to see punk kings, gangsta rap kings, cock-rocking metal kings, panty-dropping R & B kings, country kings, baggy-pants burlesque comic kings, and of course, Elvis. I picked out some songs that make me think of different aspects of masculinity: swaggering men, heartbroken men, lustful men, romantic men, philosophical men, and suicidally depressed men (interesting fact: I can think of dozens of songs by men about suicide, but only one female one: "Gloomy Sunday". What's up with that?) "That's Life" - Frank Sinatra
