It was a beautiful but chilly evening. And we talked and talked. One thing led to another and it was far too late to catch the subway for home. So, I stayed the night. My friend has a stunning condo as the Castro goes steep. After a great night's sleep we had to get rolling. He had to get to work and I had things going on as well. I walked out on to the landing infront of his door which leads to the stairs that take you to the street --- as he was locking his front door I closed my eyes and allowed the cool breeze to wash over me with sun pouring rays on to my head. I opened my eyes and looked out at the view from his small porch and was just amazed at the beauty of the day and that view. I took out my cell phone and attempted to capture the moment, but the quality and limitations of my cell phone camera hardly do any justice to it. But, let me just say it was a very Tales-of-the-City-Moment --- and I was even thin! It was great.

We kissed goodbye. I was about to head home, but noticed that they were showing a documentary which I had read about recently that fell in line with a conversation I had been having with another friend a few days before about the perception of what marriage is ---- or what is should be.

The documentary is called "Three of Hearts: A Post Modern Family" and follows the lives of 2 men and a woman who forge a "trimogomous" marriage. The two men had been in together as a gay couple for over 5 years and decided that they wanted to bring a woman into their relationship. They met this really cool woman, all 3 fell in love and an unusual marriage was born -- as well as two children. The film follows this family over the course of 8 years. I will not give out any spoilers, but it is a fantastic film filled with ideas and challenges to what we all think of as "marriage" and "family" --- and forces the audience to evaluate how much of what we think is valid. Utopia. What a concept. Great movie! See it, if you get the chance!

I had never seen the Castro put a slide show up, but they had this neat-o slide up wishing the audience a happy holiday.

Then, they showed the original and vintage preview for SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER --- which ended with a little promo about the "upcoming" 2 record set soundtrack featuring "great new songs" by the Bee Gees on RSO Records and tapes! It was awesome! I am so there when they screen SNF!!!! Despite the hair, John Travolta was so hot!!! And, I mean, really --- how deep is your love? And, then they showed the preview for a way cool looking documentary called GAY SEX IN THE 70's which I MUST see!!! Opens January 1st. I am so there!

But then my attention turned upwards above my head...

...and, I thought, "Oh my God. I will be killed if a major earthquake hits and that big chandaleir thing falls down!" But, then I thought, "Oh well, if it's my time to go, it's my time to go" ...can't be worrying about earthquakes when you're about to see a great movie.

All in all -- this was a really nice day.

Well, I'm guessing your cranium is chandelier-free, so luckily it wasn't your day to go today. Yay! And yeah, Gay Sex in the 70s sounds interesting .... I wonder if it'll make it's way across the Atalantic. Might have to wait for the next LGBT film fest for that one.
