Smells Like The Eighties

Usually after I take a shower, I reach for a bottle of cologne a spray a dab or two on. Last night, I reached way into the back of the bathroom cabinet and pulled out an ancient bottle of cologne that looked to only have one spray left in it and spritzed myself.

As the sticky sweet, cotton candy smell of the 1980's cologne covered me, the years fell away and I was young again.

Can a smell, a scent be a time machine ?

There I was - a simple, uncomplicated version of me in a Frankie Says Relax tank top, black parachute pants and a pound of product in my hair. I'm drinking a Coors Light and trying to catch the eyes of a cute blond guy wearing a really awesome lime-green Swatch.

Then it hits me.


All those beautiful, beautiful (forever young) people I used to club with are dead now. So, why am I still here ? I wasn't an angel, I took no special precaution... Not for the first time, I wish I'd been taken - when they'd been taken.

I still hear their shrieks of laughter and their wide smiles and mirthful faces are imprinted on the underside of my eyelids and I dream...oh God, I dream of them.

Always spinning, spinning - twirling on the dance floor, young and healthy and reaching for my hands. 

The 80's fade away and I'm staring at my bloated 50 year old face in the mirror again. My eyes are glistening just a bit as I drop the bottle into the trash.

I'm speechless. Somebody's really going to have some fun...or die.

Preach it, Davey Wavey !

This is a perfect video for younger gay guys. Something you might consider next time you snarl up your nose at "some old troll".


Stop and think about it first. Your generation didn't invent gay. The freedoms you now enjoy are all because of the older gays that fought and marched through the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's.

Watch those Craig's List Hook-ups, Folks !

Not being a smart-ass and I hope I don't come off as having a glib attitude about this poor man's death, but be careful with Craig's List hook-ups, folks. Shady ! Shady ! Naughty ! Naughty !

Always meet a potential hook-up at a coffee shop first. If they're not willing to meet out in public first - beware.
