DUELING PUMPKINS

It all started with this picture of me and Noah Willoughby and the following words, “It’s That Magikal Pumpkin Time of the Year!

Pumpkin lattes and splitting a pumpkin scone. We got the second to last one and it’s not even noon! And for all you sillys that don’t like pumpkin, don’t complain about it. Just don’t eat/drink them! More for me! Give me pumpkin or give me death! WHO’S WITH ME IN LIVING ALL THINGS PUMPKIN??”

I posted that picture with these…

Over 50 people “liked” that post and it turned out quite a few people joined us in the “liking” of “all things” pumpkin!

That gave me and Noah the idea of Dueling Pumpkins. We would have a duel, each day taking turns posting pumpkin/pumpkin spice products real (and maybe not-so-real?). There will really be no winner. Our goal was to entertain you. And while Noah has the most excellent Photoshopping skills, I have some loyal readers who started sending me pictures on the down-low! LOL! So here we go, those pictures starting on October 1st and going on to Halloween.

So tell me! Which of these are real. Which are not so real? Is there a winner? Let me know!
(I’ll update this each day for those who don’t follow on Facebook!)

DAY 1: From Noah with these words: Continue reading

MOVIE REVIEW: Me Him Her

What a delight! I had a wonderful time watching this movie. And there were more than a few twists.

Good acting. Even excellent acting. And jokes that build. Including one about rum and coke with jaeger. You have to watch to get it.

I wasn’t sure at first. Seemed pretty low budget. But I kept watching and oh am I glad that I did! I laughed and got more and more drawn into the story. And impressed over and over with what they managed to do.

And they threw me off! Because who I expected the story to be about wasn’t really who the movie was about. Was that a spoiler?

Dustin Milligan was so much fun as the straight best friend. And pretty hot too. Luke Bracey was pretty good as the star, a man who is a huge hit on an action television show and must figure out what to do when he realizes he is gay. Emily Meade is wonderful as the lesbian who realizes she might be bisexual. Geena Davis and Scott Bakula are in this movie! And small as the parts were, the two of them were awesome! Angela Sarafyan was truly scary fun as the psychotic lesbian ex-girlfriend. Jake McDorman, although he didn’t get much to do, really was a delight when we finally meet him (he’s the guy who kisses Luke and makes him realize that he’s gay—this happens before the movie and is not a spoiler). I loved love loved Rebecca Drysdale as the lesbian friend.

Don’t miss this movie. In a world of crappy “gay movies,” don’t miss this one.

And wonder at the end if it was a gay movie!

I am saying no more!

(special note, I posted this review to IMBD some time ago, but can’t find the review here or on Facebook and I really wanted people to see it!)

Please Help Me Pick Out a Man! (Part Two)

Okay!  Same thing as last time (which you can find by clicking HERE). I would like your help. I need…tad dah…the love interest of the young man from my last post! So once again I would like it if you would look at these older men and help pick out the one(s) that you find most attractive or eye-catching. That man that would make you turn your head if he walked by. That man you might to a double take if you were walking by and he was sitting on the steps leading into a building or leaning against a tree. And yes, I would love it if you would get other people to vote as well. All will be revealed. LOL!

Love and kisses,
BG “Ben” Thomas

In one of my many weirdnesses, I would like your help. I would like it if you would look at the young men below and pick out the one(s) that you find most attractive or eye-catching.

At Last! Leaving For Midwest Men’s Festival!!!


My daughter has arrived to house sit and so—at last—we are heading off to Midwest Men’s Festival. For those who regularly read my Facebook or blog you know that each year I head to this event and that my whole life circles around this ten days. It even inspired one of my favorite of my own novels, “Summer Lover.”

But this year it will be different for several reasons.    Continue reading
