STEVEN MICHAEL IS MY NAME, BOO!

Steven Michael is my name and that’s the way it is. I Google’d myself (insert dirty joke here) and man, I came up feeling ehhh. Where am I? I’m here, dammit! There’s my social media moments Twitter and Facebook but Lady Google has slapped me with the shade of it all. I blog my finger tips to their very nubs and Googlezilla really serves a platter of crickets to many of us in the internet world. If you’re not a major player in the game it’s difficult to get noticed. Oh, Mommie Googlest… I am not, one of your… FANS! …

BEN COHEN – HERO EQUALITY ACTIVIST

You’ve seen his image and strong equality stance on gay magazine covers, over the social networks and through media for a few years now. Ben Cohen is a prominent activist for homophobia and bullying. With his Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation he is raising awareness and doing more good each time he appears on behalf of those who care about we gays. …

ONE CHAPTER ENDS: “STEVEN SPILLS” 2008-2012

I’ve been asked lately by various readers, followers and friends what has happened to PULP magazine and if I’m still involved writing for them. One minute the magazines are on the stands and the next they are surprisingly not! Yes, I know. The answers are that PULP has gone online only and no, I’m no longer involved. With changing times and the deteriorating magazine lifespan these days, …

JEREMY WELLS FROM B.LOVED SPEAKS

As soon as I published the previous post about how wonderful my b.loved clothing was I received an email from founder Jeremy Wells answering a few questions about the mission he and Barbara set forth with their company. I decided that I had to include the open dialogue he offered about why he does it and feels his campaign is important. …

JUST LOVING B.LOVED

When reading about Jeremy Wells and Barbara Riso at b.loved, their message is clear. Everyone wants to be themselves and be loved, without hatred nor judgment. “Their most precious baby” exudes all of that through exciting powerful logos printed on quality textiles and superior fabric. When I received my order in the mail, I was first impressed by how fast it arrived but also the t-shirts fit amazing and feel fabulous. …

TAKING THAT EXTRA FIVE

I actually got this idea from a stray copy of Glamour magazine that was laying around the gym. Yes, I read it for the hot trends and pictures of gorgeous women I’ll never be. No comments, Sassy? It seemed like a fun way of sharing timely advice and a few opinions on how to make the most out of things that are worth taking the extra five minutes to do! …

ENGINE’S REV ON RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE 4

Thanks to Logo TV Online, I was able to see the first episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race a.k.a. RDR and this season is starting off with all the ego drama and catfighting one Main Stage can contain. Front runners the petite posing beauty Kenya Michaels and America’s favorite Cher impersonator Chad Michaels seem to be steering the pack of queens towards the title “America’s Next Drag Superstar”…

“THE HELP” HITS HOME

We are all into Redbox right now. Easy movie rentals for $1 and there is a kiosk almost everywhere. Reserve the film online or take your chances at the actual machine, then pick it up for the night returning it by 9 p.m. the next evening at ANY Redbox kiosk. I always wondered how you could rent a movie at the airport via Redbox with the transient ways of a traveler. …

DEDICATED TO MY DEAR JAMES

… James was unique, special and a big fan of my columns “Steven Spills.” He would often say out to me “Hello! Mr. Spills,” as he came in daily to World Gym past me singing back to him some catchy chorus of The Saturdays, one of the many music in-commons we had. James was a great DJ and his mixes popular to his circle of fortunates. The last time I saw James we were so busy at the gym I only got a quick glance of him coming in as I looked up. …

ELEPHANT’S “QUEER NATION” SHOCKS

I was contacted by the publicist for these West Hollywood-based gay rapping twin brothers who have such an edge about them and their music that gave me reason to almost not post their video. The first time I sat and listened I thought it was way too much for my website. Their music and sound is quite reminiscent of Eminem’s “I Am What I Am” featuring Marilyn Manson. …
