It's Memorial Day, bitches! A day to remember all of those who have lost their lives whilst serving our country. I have to tell you... I received a text message this morning from one of the (flaky) gays I know here in Atlanta. The message read "HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!"... It just seemed odd and incongruent. While I do not know anyone personally who was killed at war, I do have a friend who lost their father in Iraq in 2004 and I am certain he is thinking of his father today. Anyway, I replied "YOU TOO BITCH!"

Fleetwood Mac's "Unleashed" tour stopped in Glendale, Arizona last night and sadly, I was not able to attend that show... Kitten - were YOU there? Let us know!

I love unexpected things, don't you? (But don't show up at my door because, well, that's rude). A couple of months ago a friend invited me to see the '70's classic rock sensation "Heart!" I forgot about the concert until yesterday afternoon when the friend asked what time we should head to the venue. Woops! (So the event has been classified as "unexpected.") Anyhoo, I don't care what anyone says, those girls (Ann and Nancy Wilson) are talented! I like them a lot. (I even bought a "Heart" tee shirt - sized white trash tight, which I am wearing right now - it has a barracuda down the side and it looks like a tattoo). Joan Jett, who was also very good, opened the show. "Heart" is of the same genre as, you got it, STEVIE NICKS so I felt like I was watching Stevie's "cousins" last night. I like strong rock 'n roll type ladies and they were GR-EAT! The crowd was a little rough but we fit in fine. The drunk lady next to me (seems like there is always a drunk lady next to me no matter where I go, "Tigra," grabbed my ass for two hours despite the fact that I told her I am gay. I didn't care, she didn't care, and let's face it, ass grabbing is fun. (She also commented on my flawless skin... She really won me over.)

This song made me cry (inside, of course...)

I like this one too... (Here are some of the lyrics so you can sing along)

"So this ain't the end. I saw you again today. I had to turn my heart away. Smile like the sun kisses for everyone and tales it never fails. You're lying so low in the weeds. I bet you're gonna ambush me. You'd have me down, down, down, down on my knees, now wouldn't ya, barracuda." (LOL! Reminds me of a barracuda I know!)

Okay, I gotta go now bitches.

Hello YOU (and YOU, and yes, even YOU) -

It's Saturday. I love Saturday, don't you?

While I have not a thing to write, I wanted to post what I am listening to TODAY. I don't know what the song is about, although it "speaks" to me. Anyhoo, I ran 5 miles today through downtown Atlanta listening to THIS song over and over again... Did I mention that I love Saturday?

I hope YOU (and you, and yes, even YOU) have a GREAT Saturday.

Bea Arthur

You should know that if you send me an email, it is fair game for "The Corner." (You knew that, right?) Mostly because I have run out of things to write about and some of YOU are pretty funny.

The email/feedback below came from my friend Steve, not to be confused with my ex-BFF of the same name. I met Steve in high school and he is VERY funny.

Steve writes...

"A few things to cover.

I will admit, I have been a bit late in reading "the corner". But,
did you not pay tribute to the death of Bea Arthur? If you didn't I
am shocked and I am thinking of coming to ATL and taking away your gay-blog card/keyboard. 5 star vip shit is nothing on the death of a
Golden Girl! But, you looked good in that shirt and your neighbor is
kinda cute. Are you sleeping with him? Girls gotta eat, so why not
make it in the same building, no need to go out when it rains!

Have a good weekend"

In response to my silly friend, I will say YES we were remiss in mentioning the passing of Bea Arthur. Tisk tisk. The truth is, "we" were so busy consoling mourners that day (it's true, I wish I were making that up...) that "we" overlooked it here. "We" hope you will forgive us. When Betty or Rue "hears the call of the night bird" (yes, that's a Stevie Nicks reference to death) "we" will be all over it! So, if you haven't heard, actress Bea Arthur, most famously known for playing "Maude" on the sitcom of the same name and for playing "Dorothy" on "The Golden Girls," has died. She was 86 (just shy of her 87th birthday, which is May 13th).

Next topic - No, I am not sleeping with my neighbor but do agree that he is cute (he's smart and nice too so I am not attracted to him - I like my men CRAZY). Also, experience has taught me that a little rain never hurt anyone. I love the picture of us though. Mostly because I am standing closer to Stevie's microphone, under the stage light, and I look like the star. My neighbor is standing back a little bit, out of the light, like a stage hand. (In "real life," he's the star and I'm the stage hand.)

Finally, THANKS for the props on the shirt, which, I admit, is the real reason I am sharing your email! I LOVE Ben Sherman! His shirts were made for me! I have 6 now (size small) and watch what I eat just so I can continue wearing them!

Isn't Steve hysterical folks? He cracks me up. THANKS for the email Steve! "We" want him to join the staff here and write for "The Corner."

TODAY is our friend Patrick's birthday. While I was not in town to celebrate with him, it sounds like he did plenty of celebrating on his own (he needs to get his ass to Promises). Anyway, raise whatever it is you are drinking ("we" need to get to Promises too) and help wish our friend Patrick a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

"Kev" will be continuing his tour with Fleetwood Mac, rejoining them (from the stage) in NASHVILLE! YAY! The Nashville concert will be "Kev's" 54th Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks concert! YAY! I like writing YAY! (I did get another funny email from Jean, you know, our British friend in London, who said that she thought the Fleetwood Mac thing was just a phase, since, like Steve, Jean and I have been friends since high school.)

Okay, I have nothing left to say today. I hope YOU have a GR-EAT Tuesday

It's FRIDAY, bitches!

Okay, "Russ" & "Sherrill" (the fish) seem to be on the mend! No more lying on the bottom of the tank (aren't you relieved?).

"We" are heading out of town (home to Chicago) and won't have time for this silly little blog for a bit, but "we" hope YOU have a GR-EAT weekend/week.

Be back soon...

It's a sad day here at "The Corner..." Both of my goldfish, "Russ" and "Sherrill," are at death's door, or as Stevie (as in Nicks) would say, "they have heard the call of the nightbird." Both fish are laying at the bottom of the tank and neither has moved in hours... The ph level in the tank has been high and I have tried everything (including replacing most of the water) to save them. I don't know what to do? I have spent almost $600 on two fish that cost $14. If there is a fish doctor, I would rush them to him. Anyhoo, have a good day everyone...

A super sad,

My Friend Mick Fleetwood

WUZ UP BITCHES?!; It's really late, I am SUPER drunk (it's true...) and it is now officially FRIDAY!! YAY!

Alright, if you read Tuesday's post, then you know that "Kev" (hey, that's MY name!) was a "5-star VIP" at the Fleetwood Mac concert here in Atlanta on Tuesday. It's true... I am still reeling from the evening! You want to hear (read) all about it? Okay... here's what went "down..."

First, you pay a real lot of money to the "I Love All Access" people for a 5-Star VIP ticket! (It's worth it.) They guarantee you a seat for the concert in the first 10 rows PLUS a buffet dinner and (hold your skirts...) MEET 'n GREET with MICK FLEETWOOD!! We (neighbor/friend Zane) arrived at our secret location at Philips Arena at 5:30 p.m. where we met "Cory," our guide for the evening. Cory was nice. We checked in, signed a waiver (you know, all the things you promise you won't do or say whilst backstage/onstage, etc... and while in the presence of celebrities, then you loose your shit and do/say those things anyway). Once checked in, we shopped hassle free at one of the merchandise tables. I didn't have to push or shove anyone out of my way, so it was nice. As usual, I was first! (It's how I like it, okay.) I bought a real cute/tight Fleetwood Mac t-shirt with the trademark "penguin" on the front. (Fits real good - I look darling in it.) I also bought Fleetwood Mac "dog tags" that looked super gay, so I gave them away before the show even started, and a refrigerator magnet. Next (this is going to be a real long paragraph... I say "fuck it" when it comes to grammar and editing tonight! It is, after all, late and I am, once again, drunk). So next, like I said, they took us ON STAGE where we waited for Mick Fleetwood (founding member and drummer of the legendary band FLEETWOOD MAC). Mick was greeted with thunderous applause and a few squeals from, well, me! First, Mick posed in front of his drum set with each of us for the standard/stock meet 'n greet photo! Before I touched him, I said, "Mick, may I put my arm around you for the photo" (or something really gay like that) and he said, "Of course! Hell ya!" In my real life, I never ask before touching someone. I just do it. They don't call me the little octopus for nothing, you know, but these celebrities can be sensitive and get your ass thrown out, so you gotta follow those rules on the waiver you signed which says something about touching.. (Anyhoo, he wanted me a little bit - I could sense it.) Next, after that, he answered questions from the 20 of us VIPs... I told him, "Mick, I was born in May of 1967. The same year as the original Fleetwood Mac. I think that's "special" and I tell my friends that all of the time!" He said, "The band was actually formed in August of 1967 but you keep telling people that!" He was SUPER nice. I love him. (This was actually the 4th time I have met Mick in person.) So after that was over, we went up to a private party room where Fleetwood Mac songs and videos could be heard/seen. It was off the hook/chain (whatever)! We ate CHICKEN PARMIGIANA! (My favorite). Then... (this is real exciting....) we took a Fleetwood Mac quiz (much like the quizzes I give when I throw a party - it's TRUE!) AND guess who won? You got it! ME! (And my friend Zane, who is also a super fan.) These other bitches didn't know much about Fleetwood Mac. Zane and I missed two questions but still enough to win John McVie's (he's the bass player) guitar picks! Bully awesome is what I say! At this point I was feeling a little caged and wanted to get down to my seat/place at the stage (I had enough of the other VIPs. I was done with them). I left the group and went down to where I would stand for the next 3 hours. (Zane later found me.) I met another crazy fan, "Wild Heart," whom I saw last Saturday and whom I have known for a couple years now. She was happy to see me and I was happy to see her! (I gave her the dog tags!) Oh shit, I forgot to tell you... Whilst up in that party room, they gave us Fleetwood Mac gift bags with Fleetwood Mac shit in them. It was AWESOME! Did I tell you Mick also signed a picture for me, "To Kevin. Mick Fleetwood." I think I forgot that part, but it happened and I am framing it. My head hurts. So the lights went down about 8:10 p.m. (East Coast Diamond Time) and the band opened to "Monday Morning, " a "hit" from their 1975 "white" album (and it reminds me of my friend, who has been more than a friend, if you know what I mean, Russ) because it says, well, you listen to it. It's nice. My place pressed up against the stage provided unfettered (what does unfettered mean? I don't know..) access to Stevie and Lindsey. My friend Zane stood behind me, keeping the riff raff away. Lindsey made a lot of eye contact with me. I smiled, shouted "I LOVE YOU" (to all of them) and lip-synced word for word to every song. At one point, Lindsey came over to me and I am CERTAIN he chose me purposely because he made eye contact with all of us in the front and when he saw me, he came right over. He played a guitar solo (I can't remember the song because, well, I'm drunk) but after the song, he held his hand out for me to take. I held his hand like a school girl for about 30 seconds. It was HOT then I realized it probably looked gay, so I let go. The show was AMAZING. Stevie smiled at me a couple of times but, if I am being honest here, really made a big to do about Zane, waving at him and shit. Tuesday's show was my (and I told this to Mick earlier) 53rd Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks concert! When Stevie sang, "Silver Springs" I thought of my ex-BF, Steve, when Stevie sang "Gypsy" I thought of my best friend in the world who means more to me than anyone, JoAnn. When Stevie sang, "Never Going Back Again, " I thought of my Grandmother because she sent me the YouTube video of that song once and when Stevie sang "Stand Back" I thought of the many people (men) in my life I have given my heart to who did not want it (Sad? A little BUT it is GREAT to dance to!). (Did I tell you I am drunk?)

The pictures here were taken by Zane on his iPhone. You can see what our view of the concert was like. The microphone I am standing by belongs to... STEVIE NICKS! (Notice her trademark ribbons.) If you click on the picture, it will enlarge for better viewing. (You can see her microphone very well and you can almost see the diamonds in my watch....)

If/when Stevie, Lindsey, Mick and John (that's the band) come to your town, I hope you get a chance to see them. Nothing in the world is more exciting to me than being in the front row at a Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac concert. I don't understand it, can't explain it, but it "speaks" to me. (Yes, I am still drunk.)

Okay, if YOU are in Atlanta on Sunday... Come have a drink (perhaps a peach margarita) with ME at Blake's at 3:00 p.m.! I will be there celebrating, you got it, getting old(er) with friends!

Much love -
