When Madonna’s single, Vogue, from her I’m Breathless album (music from and inspired by the film Dick Tracy), originally premiered in 1990, I fell in love with it. THEN, after seeing the video, I fell in love with “Slam.” Slam’s real name is Salim Gauwloos, and he was the face in Madonna’s Vogue video. Perfect in every way. That nose! BEAUTIFUL! *sigh* Continue reading
While attending college, I made assorted acquaintances (I hesitate calling them friends). One of them was a girl named ‘Stacy.’ I actually liked Stacy quite a lot. She was a very cool person, but like a lot of cool people I’ve met over the years, she made bad choices.
Stacy had the distinction of being my first (and come to think of it, ONLY) lesbian friend. We had a few classes together and would occasionally hang out outside of school. We would mostly go clubbing together and that’s where she met her girlfriend, “Renee.” In all honestly, I wasn’t too wild about her, but she always managed to get us into all the hottest clubs, no matter how long the line was, AND once inside, she and her guests (that included me) were treated like VIPs. I never really gave much thought as to the how or whys, I just sat back and enjoyed the ride. Continue reading

Recently, while at Half Price Books, I bought a 4-disc DVD set titled Crypt of Terror: Horror From South of the Border (Vol.1).

Ever-hopeful, I recently signed up for what has turned out to be my final attempt at meeting gay men: I downloaded the Gay Men’s Social Network app for the iPad.
As I write more and more installments of Quantum Kirk (and trust me, we’ve just scratched the surface!), it dawned on me that everything has come full circle: I’m still, however much I hate to use the word, optimistically, trying to grasp the elusive brass
Documenting my extensive, yet comical, experiences looking for love in all the wrong places, I’m sure to the reader-come-lately it looks as if I’ve been looking too hard and that if I merely stop, that’s when it’ll *happen*! I’d say a hiatus of roughly 10 years is a pretty good head start…and finish.
But let me get back to how I arrived at my inevitable conclusion.
As I scrolled through roughly 15 dozen gay men (via the GMSN app), ranging in distance from 1-300 miles, it felt like deja view all over again. It’s all about anonymous sex. It’s all about prerequisites. It’s all a monumental waste of my time and energy…yet again. Continue reading
