Okay, okay, okay. I deserve all the shit I got from my 'phone-in' column last week. I'm scads more well-rested and ready to take on the heavy yoke of another week's column.
In my mental absence, didn't get a chance to mention Crew's Hot Jock Contest last week. Surely, you saw Ms. Crystal Fur on the cover, head stuck amongst the fur of two hot jock winners. With ear pressed to crotch, I wonder if she could hear the ocean. Anyway, Nightspots is pickled tink to be the new media sponsor for this great night.
A hardy congrats to Josh and Lee, the first two finalists headed for stardom with Windy City Gay Idol. Jackhammer hosted the kick-off round to much fanfare. I got to be a judge, which, after 4 vodkas, can be an enlightening experience. I was having a 'Doublemint' moment when Joe and his twin brother each did a number. What fun. What fun.
Another shout out to Luis. Gay Idol wasn't enough for you? You had to take second in Temptations' karaoke contest? Well, good for you. We'll always support a former cover boy ( or girl ) .
Sunday nights are deeper than ever at Spin with Sunday Night Hustle, the new night of 1,000 delights, brought to you by none other than this week's cover boy ( or girl ) DJ Doug Brandt. From deep underground house to random saxophone solos, it's a rainbow of hipness.
One more shout out – thank God Lluvy from America's Next Top Model just squeaked by this week! You better get it together, girl!
