Science affirms bisexual dudes


To everyone who thought that "bisexual" was just a bus stop on the way to "GayTown,"  science disagrees

Via NY Times

Jim Larsen, 53, a chairman of the Bisexual Organizing Project, a Minnesota-based advocacy group, said the findings could help bisexuals still struggling to accept themselves.

“It’s great that they’ve come out with affirmation that bisexuality exists,” he said. “Having said that, they’re proving what we in the community already know. It’s insulting. I think it’s unfortunate that anyone doubts an individual who says, ‘This is what I am and who I am.’"

Masquerade, Q & A with Neil Zumwalde


Mo: So Neil, you're set to release your new EP at HOMOapolis Live @ Lush's birthday block party, how would you describe your sound to someone who has never herd it before

Zumwalde: I start from a sound design meets songwriting point of view, where I integrate a lot of electronic noises in carefully placed nooks in the songs, which have a more concrete and dynamic song structure than similar electronic music. I am willing to use any and every object around me to make the sounds I want, and to modify it unrelentingly.
