  1. So sorry, ldyj. I've been using the pandemic as an excuse to delay. And delay. And delay some more.
  2. Here's a local news article. https://www.wral.com/durham-school-of-the-arts-actress-wins-national-award-for-best-performance/19775480/ I find the article confusing. Did both teens from North Carolina win the national award?* I don't think so, but they're certainly giving the guys (in this case, the local winner) close to equal time. Here's another article: https://abc11.com/triangle-rising-stars-elena-holder-joshua-messmore-durham-performing-arts-center/10889734/ *OK, I watched the embedded video. Bryson Battle of Charlotte did win the national award, so both NC teens won, but only the local, Triangle winner of best actress did. I would have liked to hear more from her and about her than we got from either source.
  3. The female contestant in the "Rising Stars" competition that Clay hosted won the national award! — Durham, NC (@DurhamNC) July 16, 2021 Does anyone remember what she sang in the contest?
  4. I thought couchie got it exactly right. Along these same lines, and then some, there's this, from twitter:
  5. Lordy, everyone in NC is already running for that seat, including people who were running in 2020 for Senate or Congress and basically just never stopped. I think the Dem party has already selected its chosen candidate, which is sad, because the chosen one this go-round couldn't keep his pants zipped and lost to Tillis. I think it's too late for Clay to put his hat in, and I'm sure he knows that. Two top candidates of the moment are 1) Erica Smith, who lost the primary to Mr. Zipper last year; she's a senator in the General Assembly, sharp, and multitalented. She campaigned her butt off last time (traveled all over NC) and just kept going. And 2) Jeff Jackson. He is also a state senator. He's a veteran, an officer still serving in the National Guard; great at social media and keeping people informed. He's the chosen one of the moment, and not a bad choice, although I'm rooting for Erica. There will probably be more folks jumping in; early days yet, but Burr announced his retirement last year, so it isn't a surprise.
  6. All is Not Well Don't Come, All Ye Faithful (sorta stole that one) Let it Go, Let it Go, Let it Go
  7. Good instincts. I just saw this today and thought, wow, he's a lot like Clay in his journey to acceptance and his messy cargo pants approach to gay style - lol. https://www.salon.com/2011/11/16/the_coming_out_story_i_never_thought_id_write/
  8. Of course I went on and messed around some more. I think I'll quit now while I'm ahead. Banner is back; added back a little padding to the left of the text in posts. This reply window looks entirely different, but I like it. Oh, and a "search" box mysterious reappeared, this time between the menu bars up top, so I took the search option that was directly on the menu away again. If anyone sees anything else, holler.
  9. Yo folks, sorry about the strange look, and the teeny banner. Ldy was having trouble with Instagram, and, well, long story, and the other board I work on for my community also just went wonky and I need to go check on that. Things look functional here now, so good for now. Back later. ETA: back from the other board. Ugh. My mind has decided it just won't work anymore. Will take a look tomorrow.
  10. OK, I just spent days trying to figure out what YKW stood for. FInally did. Much prefer it to the alternative.
  11. I really enjoyed that interview! He was so good in Drowsy Chaperone--I hope he does get to do it again. Really wise things to say about inclusion. I also love the house--so many windows. So funny that he's doing renovations and he's "butch" now.
  12. ninna, so sorry you've had to go through this! Hope the New Year will bring renewed health!!
  13. I think it has to be Gregory Ellis. The guy in the picture is too young to be William Joseph 14 yrs. later.
  14. Looking at ldyj's lovely new banner, I feel 98% certain that the "new" picture on the right is a re-colorized version of the picture on the left.
  15. Hey, I'm not seeing anything in the post above except your comment. I looked at the code, but ??? Could this be the link, ldyj? Don't know how to imbed a Facebook post but I think this is the link: Live stream a gala song ETA: I did it, kind of.
  16. Well crap! I was going to wait and see this when it airs, and now it's not even available to buy! WAH!!
