Post Apocalyptic Bohemia is really not a very political place, although I am very upfront with my politics when not blogging. I read several blogs that give strong political statements & I always come away ruffed up & ready for the world after stopping by places like Bob’s-I Should Be Laughing. This little spot on the World Wide Web is meant to be a celebration of the people, music, films, theatre, books, & events that I love. But, on my Christmas Eve dog walk through my neighborhood, I just couldn’t get my head wrapped around the fact that The Vatican has stated that the Church will do everything in Vatican’s power to stop same-sex marriage in Mexico City, but has said nothing about “Kill the Gays” legislation in Uganda. On the eve of the birth of Jesus, the message from the Catholic Church is: genocide = OK, marriage = very bad. I need the miracle of the Christmas whiskey.
I am a mid-20th century gay man still trying to get a handle on how to live life with meaning. I live in Portland Oregon with my husband/partner of 32+ years & the terriers: Lulu & Junior.
As an actor I have been in over 150 full stage productions, 12 films/TV, over 50 commercials & voice overs.
Our home & garden in Seattle (1981-2001) were published several times & were featured in a "coffee table" book- Flea Market Decorating by Meredith Press. That garden was on the Seattle Art Museum's Tour Of Artists' Gardens in 1999.
We moved to Portland in a fit of middle age anxiety in 2001.
We spend our time & money working on our house & garden in a working class bungalow, in a working class neighborhood.
The old-ball-& chain & I are thought to be a little nutty. ME:
