Here are some of the highlights of my journeys:
- Monty Python's Spam-A-Lot
- Billy Elliot The Musical
- Moths ate my Dr. Who Scarf
- Jim & Chris' Wedding
- Stark Bollock Naked at The Hoist
- Starker's Club (London's Naked Disco) (yes, there are females there as well!)
- my usual clubs: The King's Arms, The Hoist and Compton's
I got a super surprise! Do you happen to recall me mentioning Club XXL from my 2006 trip to London? (It was that really huge Bear Bar near London Bridge that I wrote about and vowed never, ever returning to due to the ear-bleedingly loud music.)
Well, after Jim & Chris' wedding reception at the Canal Museum, we all went to Club XXL. I was really not looking forward to it -- being so damn loud with no escape from it all, plus paying £10-£20 just to get in and be subjected to it all! Well, I was delightfully surprised to discover that they resolved the noise problem! Each five sections now has different volume levels and types of music, allowing people to lose their hearing whilst boogieing their butt off -- or sitting on a couch in the quite popular lounge chatting up that really woofy leather bear with the basket of death! There is very good noise separation between each arch section. Truly, it now has something for everyone!
If the hearing/communication comfort level wasn't awesome enough, they have now embraced leather and fetish bears! Check out their new "Filthy Fridays" (dress code) and other events! XXL is obviously doing quite well, whereas other clubs (even The Hoist) have been struggling since the smoking ban went into effect. Rumour control says that the Hoist is giving up half of it's space in order to remain open. :-(
Dave Pike and I met up with some folks for meals and various entertainment chrishansenhome and his partner Wai-Liang, also our new mates, Daniel and Orlando (of course, Orlando would probably say it should be read: "Orlando and Daniel") wink, wink! We watched the first two episodes of season four of the New Dr. Who. (I'll have the first three episodes up on Chazhome.com soon, I promise!! Don't beat me!)
Do please click the links I've so painstakingly put in this message before asking me silly questions, as I've a very busy schedule. This weekend it's skydiving in Lebenon -- then it's off to Atlanta, Georgia. I meet up with Rob in Atlanta and he joins me for the plane ride to Manchester England for The 11th Annual Great British Bear Bash! Following the Bear Bash, it's off to undisclosed travels with Dave Pike.
I return directly to Boston simply to head over to Rochester, NY for the Rochester Rams' CanAm weekend, directly from Rochester to Chicago, IL for IML and the Bear party, then back home to grab my motorcycle and ride to New York City for the Empire City Motorcycle Club's Picnic!
Why do I bother living in Boston? It's expensive and has very little rewarding adult male night life. I'm seriously contemplating moving once again. This time, somewhere cheaper, somewhere warmer, somewhere where there aren't a lot of Republicans. ...Of course, I'll probably end up back in New York. They have the best airports to escape to the world from!

I'd move to England or Canada in a heartbeat if I had a job I could transfer there (and get good proper pay for where I lived, London is much more expensive than Boston!) -- but my manager hasn't a clue if I could retain my job across borders on a full-time, non-US citizen basis (yes, with a move out of the country, I wouldn't hesitate giving up my citizenship after what Bush has done to this country -- I won't be alive to see a recovery from this mess!)
Oh well, I'll work on that more when I return from New York. If you've got any ideas, please shoot 'em my way! Remember: Warm, Cheap, Large Airport, Gay Scene, Few Republicans. ;-) ... hummm, Atlanta perhaps?
