WIN Tickets to BLOWOFF! on August 1st

Next weekend Bob Mould and Rich Morrel are bringing their East Coast dance sensation BLOWOFF! back to Chicago again - just in time for Market Days.

They were here during IML/Bear Pride/Memorial Day weekend and blew the roof off of the Metro.

Next Saturday Night - August 1st - they're doing it again. You'll be partying the day away at Market Days so why not spend the night dancing to some of the hottest DJ's/Music Producers in the country!

No need to buy tickets though as I've got a pair of tickets to give away.

**TO WIN JUST GO HERE AND LEAVE A COMMENT**

Everyone that I talked to said that they had an amazing time dancing the night away.

Hey Folks,

I'm giving away two pairs of tickets to the Queer Queens of Comedy show that's hitting the Lakeshore Theater tomorrow night.

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post.

You can enter as often as you want! The drawing will be held tomorrow (Friday) at noon.

You actually get two shows for the price of one becuase they're having their full blown comedy show at 7:30 and then a taping of a gameshow at 10 that you can stay and watch!

What a great way to start the weekend.

So head on over and enter the contest.

Those crazy mormons just love their porn

A recent study has shown that per-capita, Utah is the largest consumer of Internet Porn!


Yep, you heard that right, they love themselves some porn!  Did you realize that the porn is a $12.5B industry?  That is $12,500,000,000 and almost $3,000,000,000 of that is from online porn.


The author of the report, Ben Edelman, took at look at peoples online porn subscriptions and linked them up to income, zip codes and even the value of online memberships and came up with something really interesting - Utah has the highest per-capita consumption of porn in the country.


That's right, that cute little old square state over there that's filled with hate against the homos likes to buy porn....and especially those with broadband.  5.74 homes per thousand with broadband internet buy porn online.  Now don't worry about those people with dial-up or less than broadband, they're still number 1 with 1.74 per thousand homes subscribing to porn.  Illinois is somewhere between Virginia at 1.0 and North Dakota at 0.69 per thousand (apparently there was a lot of bunching)


But what about those crazy Mormons.  First they deny that they had anything to do with Prop 8 in California and then it turns out they did.....and now they're using their "internal email system" to get their Illinois congregants to call State Representatives to vote NO on HB223.....I'm surprised that they can get their hands out of their pants and rally the troops.


Here is a brief description of Illinois HB2234:



Creates the Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act. Defines "civil union" as a legal relationship between 2 persons, of either the same or opposite sex, established in accordance with the Act



Don't just sit there and let them change the vote in Illinois like they did in California!  CALL YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE and tell them to vote YES on HB2234 and that you support Civil Unions!
