Paul Newman announced that he’s quit acting to focus on daughter Nell’s organic products and his own “homegrown” Westport, Connecticut eatery, Dressing Room, with chef Michel Nischan (Pure & Simple cookbook author), which hosts local farmers markets on its “backlot.” Read More

The Gaying Of America

The Phoenix
Ten moments when the mainstream assimilated gay culture and made it its own


ArtWork: Lucy Wilkins

In our post–Queer Eye for the Straight Guy world, many people — particularly younger people — take for granted that the divide between gay culture and mainstream culture is as thin as the latex of an expensive condom. This has not always been the case. Since the Stonewall Riots of 1969, the underground gay counterculture has consistently, and vitally, influenced mainstream popular culture in style, music, fashion, language, sexual mores, and politics. Here are 10 moments — all of them decisive — that chart the gradual, but irrefutable, queering of American culture. Read More

This Day In History

Bette Midler sends Johnny Carson off with the perfect Valentine for his last show. Just beautiful and right on target. I know there are many bootleg videos out there, but this moment should maybe be preserved and bought from his own video collection.

“Experience The Divine” Webmaster Graduates!!!

I know all of you remember Terri Eades from site…arguably the prettiest Bette site on the internet. Anyway, she graduated college on May 12 as a designer. Currently she works for a wireless company around the Denver area.

Congrats Terri and a hug and a kiss from all of us…. Read More
