Saturday Night

It's Saturday night and there is a sense of anticlimax, cos I made out last night, seriously big time.

This deflated feeling is exacerbated by it being 'Sleaze Ball' tonight - the second most gritty all-night dance party on the Sydney gay calendar. The most is 'Inquisition' - 'Mardi Gras' is at the other end of the spectrum. Links are for interested non-local persons.

But back to last night's crotch-oriented events. One way of circumnavigating round any post-good-sex gloom can be to re-live the experience. So ... it had all the athletics you could want, and I (finally) came but with a lot less bang than I wished for. Waited too long between sex! Super-hopeless planning. Four days-ish for me is for maximum big effect. How bout you guys? Actually, re-living this is boring ... .

I did get Ang Lee's 'Brokeback Mountain' out from the local video store. A great great movie - I knew it was good but didn't expect more. It is not obvious, or trite. Nothing is gratuitous - all things develop the main themes of the piece. Everything in the right balance - nothing pushed too hard or done heavy-handedly. Beautifully shot, as was 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon'. And the film gathers to an understated but heart-wrenching end.

Anyway, keeping to the theme of the movie going:


  1. I liked Brokeback, up there among the tops of the year, but it's a sad movie.

    Love the pics you've chosen here.

  2. sad, yeah - but real, don't you think, to the time about the difficulties of being outwardly being gay. and the pics came from a guy who collects old pics and gave me a copy of his collection. be in touch! nick

  3. And sad that there are people out there now still finding it so hard to be outwardly gay. The film is a tragedy but a good one, emotional and thought-provoking.

  4. Yeah, a lot! I've thought about the film quite a bit over the day - last night was the first time I'd seen it. Often we judge the state of things by our own (liberated) friends and circle but every now and then I realize the world outside that can be different.
