Seventeen years ago, it was freezing. Seventeen years ago, they were all snowed in by a terrible blizzard. Seventeen years ago, in Amish country Pennsylvania, if there was a blizzard you weren’t getting out of your house for at least a week because the land was forgotten by snow plows […]

Johnny’s World: Am I A Square?

October 17, 2013 8:22 AM11 comments

A recent obsession of mine is a new television program on Showtime, called “Masters of Sex.” It chronicles the work of a doctor/scientist in the ’50s conducting a “smut”-ridden project to learn about human sexuality and its affects on the body. In addition to being a show filled with personal […]

Waiting lists reach into the years, the cost is outrageous, and the exclusivity is unparalleled. This […]

Johnny’s World: Make-Up

There’s something about the first time you look at yourself in the mirror in the morning that is so revealing. It isn’t something you necessarily think of as you’re staring at the wombat/black-eyed ghost creature that peers droopy eyed back at you after one too many “snoozes” on your alarm […]

Johnny’s World: LGBT

September 12, 2013 9:25 AM13 comments

Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender. LGBT covers a lot of what the world doesn’t quite understand. In recent times I’ve heard the possibility of adding a “Q” for queer, and an “A” for ally, but it’s always been quite peculiar to me how this grouping came about and how it’s very […]

Johnny’s World: Baby

September 5, 2013 7:58 AM6 comments

I was always taught that the American dream was to be a member of the home ownership club, to have babies, and to vacation regularly. Owning a home, for a Birkin bag obsessed person like myself, may be something that comes a bit later than normal. I already have a […]

Johnny’s World: The Gaylympics, Part 4

August 15, 2013 8:38 AM12 comments

This is a topic that just won’t quit. In the last week we’ve heard from several high-ranking Russian officials that they either will or won’t uphold the ridiculous anti-gay propaganda law. We’ve heard suggestions from Western media and fans of the Olympics of actions as outrageous as banning the host […]
