Post Date: 2015-08-29 22:21:46 by cranky

During a preview for Sundays episode of I Am Cait, the 65-year-old former Olympian sits down for a discussion about what it means to be a normal woman, and expresses a desire to have his womanhood validated by a man. It would be very attractive to me to have a guy treat me like a woman, Jenner tells fellow transwoman Jennifer Boylan. What does that mean? the co-chair of GLAADs National Board of Directors asks.

Reflections of My Life - Marmalade (clever split screen 1969/2014 Performance)
Post Date: 2015-08-17 10:32:39 by Liberator
"Take me back...to my old home...." Yes, it's a theme we sort of still remember from John Denver's 'Country Roads'. 'Reflections of My Life' is a melancholy classic from 1969, cleverly and beautifully redone and produced by Joe Tansin in 2014, and performed by the song's original vocalist, Dean Ford. The 45 years in between performances is a bitter-sweet and humble reminder that time....flies. Poster Comment:When I first stumbled upon this video, I wasn't paying attention, wondering who the old guy was who was doing this song. I quickly realized it was the sharp young guy in the red blazer from 1969; Sang with the emotion of a full passing 45 ...

Poster Comment:Been a while since I heard any Jesse Colin Young,and figured others might like it,too. Chances are some of you are too young to have ever heard of him,never mind heard his music. Last time I saw him playing live it was in a bar that might have held 200 people in Va.Beach,Va in the early 70's. I was watching the look on their faces as he sang This is a song for Julia to his wife. Turned out to be a pretty wild night. There were even a couple of chicks backed up to the long wall urinal in the mens room because the line was too long for the ladies room. Enjoy!
