As much as I’m reluctant to watch sports, I always make sure to catch (some of) the Super Bowl. The main reason is to do my duty as a fellow American and partake in this long-lasting American pastime (also to not feel completely clueless when I’m a part of water cooler chatter). But most importantly, […]

I have a confession to make.  I’ve been cheating on blogging with writing features for the Washington Blade.  I know, I’m awful but who can resist having their name in print for thousands around the Washington Metropolitan area to read?

The year is 1987. Michael Jackson’s “Bad” reigned on the Billboard Charts, a gallon of gas was $0.89 and Ryan Oliver Alexander Rosado (R.O.A.R.) was born. While cleaning my apartment the other weekend I stumbled upon a little booklet filled with ads from 1987. They’re from Seek Publishing’s “Remember When” series. Thought I’d share them […]

Stock photos are so overrated.  Why pay for pictures when there’s a whole world of high quality, high resolution photos available through Creative Commons?  Sometimes when I’m writing a blog post or making a presentation for work, I want to use striking photos but either don’t have the money to pay for stock photos or […]

So I don’t just usually post stuff like this but for those who don’t know I LUV Madonna!  To me not only is she a great performance artist but a heck of a business woman.  Last night at the Superbowl XLVI she put on the what I think to be the best Halftime Show of […]
