ome days in our glorious city of Chicago turn out so incredibly right, it almost makes me want to cry. Last Sunday was one of them. No, it wasn't the weather. No, I didn't get laid. And no, I didn't win the lottery. But I did meet some fantastic people, and that's what I love about this town: The people of Chicago are the reason I've never left.
I had the good fortune of sitting down and drinking a Margarita ( or three ) with the boys of the PNS Explosion. What's a 'PNS Explosion,' you ask? Well, it's a little of this and a little of that. Or, let me call it what I really think it is: a big gay fun comedy show with three outstanding and talented hotties, giving you more laughs per minute than Judy Tenuta on crack.
Judy Tenuta. Yes, I did.
Patrick, Noah and Scott are three queer podcasters, a.k.a. queercasters, who have created a fabulous gay comedy fun show on the internets at pnsexplosion.com . There are no taboo topics for this troika of twittering twinks. And you know if I'm busting a move on the alliteration, I mean business.
People like Cher, Dame Judy Dench and Jessica Simpson even make regular visits to their show. Many other personalities pop up from time to time; a testament to the vocal talents of these three. There's even a generous helping of potty humor. And I mean, really, who doesn't like a good fart gag *poot*. Oh crap, time to change my pants.
Joking aside, these guys have been creating a fun show for some time now. They're close to having eighty episodes produced, with a handful of fun videos sprinkled in the mix, and a blog that will have you roaring with laughter and sighing with fond memories.
Perhaps the best thing about them is that none of them are elitist about any of it. They are three guys having fun and chatting about celebs, the news, and whatever queer things happen to pop up in their lives. Listening to them, I feel like I'm sitting on a couch with a glass of red in hand, dishing with my best galpals.
So my message this week is to fire up your iTunes, search for the PNS Explosion, and subscribe to their show. Or visit their website at pnsexplosion.com . Yes, it's explicit. Yes, there are fart noises. Yes, there is a reason the name 'Scott' rhymes with 'hot.' Yes, Patrick has really large hands. And yes, Noah, taller than the Sears Tower, can charm your manties off with a single smile. They're good folks. Real good. Trust.
And, to squeeze in one last thought, Liza Minelli looked FAGulous at Borders over the weekend. She was bubbly and totally a treat to meet. Someone needs to find out what moisturizer she was using on her hands ( I was too starstruck to ask ) and tell Madonna to slather some on her claws.
With you in 4/4,
