“We kissed, we held each other, we lay on top of each other in bed… and there were lots of complaints about that. Nobody complained that I was shot in the head four times, there were burning people in ovens, that I was stabbed by a mob of 50 people hundreds of times, and I was hanging dripping my blood in a pit. So that’s what confuses me, because you’re not complaining about gay sex, you’re complaining about two men kissing. And it’s 2011. And people say, ‘Well why should we have that on television?’ Because the BBC have to represent the greater public - and there are gay people out there who pay their television license. For people to complain, that’s your prerogative — but you know what, none of them turned it off! They were just embarrassed because it put them in a position where they had to explain things to their kids or their family which probably should have been explained a long time ago.”—John Barrowman on ‘Torchwood’ (via roseandthebeast: cocknbull)
My first artist showcase at the Fine Line Music Cafe in Minneapolis, Oct. 13th. You can purchase your ticket at the link. Make sure to change the pulldown tab from “General audience” to Michael Arthur!
I’ve got a lot of fun things planned for this show. I’ve got a small commitment to bring people out by selling tickets online through the link. So spread the word!
I’ll post my better works here for the rest of the world to see. Expect some “classic” content for awhile until I get caught up to the present. Postings of neat graphic design, weird TV logos, other people’s re-blogs and the like will continue on this channel.
