Observations from my Bed 6.17

As I fade to black it seems maybe the vote on the New York same sex marriage bill wont happen today. More important things, such as rent controls, seem to have gotten in the way. But more likely it's the Archbishop's fear gay marriage will turn this country into North Korea, or China, or god forbid a theocratic state such as Iran. Or maybe it's just the Republican members of the Senate fear that if they do what's right, and actually vote their conscience instead of their wallet, the golden sun won't come up in the morning. Sometimes it just all makes me want to scream, but not now, not yet. The thought of being on the right side of history still makes me smile.


On a lighter note Lady Gaga's video for "The Edge of Glory" premiered tonight. I have to admit that although I'm a closet Gaga fan I haven't always been the biggest fan of her vids. But this is awesome, just a stark understated video that features only Lady Gaga and Jersey shore legend E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons. It really is totally awesome, take a look.

Clarence Clemons suffered a stroke last weekend and his condition is still listed as serious. The family has said fans can send wishes via email to
