Congrats to Sir Jim and boy nelson for their recent wins at this year’s Northeast Leather Weekend in Providence, RI. Well deserved honors for such honorable men.
Boots all beat up from this winter’s excessive weather? Jay Falcon, 2011/2012 Northeast Community Bootblack & 2012 international Community Bootblack 1st runner up will be at your service during SNOWBOUND this weekend.
Check him out Friday night during the White Out and C*CK Party at Paramount (Crown & Anchor), Saturday afternoon during Chaps & Straps at The Vault (C & A) and on Saturday night during The Leather Dance at The Atlantic House Dance Club.
I’m fairly certain that I’ve shared these lyrics (written below) in the past but feel compelled to do so again.
Sleep has escaped me in recent days, in large part because of the (way too many) friends we have lost this last year, JASON LYNCH, TIM STARKEY, DAVID DURMAN, JASON SCOTT. These men were WAY TOO F*CKING young to leave us & I, for one, have an overwhelming sense of uncertainty and fragility, feelings that are unfamiliar and uncomfortable to me. It is surreal.
These lyrics speak to friendship and honor and truth…unspoken but universally held tenets of the brotherhood & family I have aligned myself with. I share these words in hopes that each of us, for at least a moment, pauses to acknowledge the value of those around us and the brotherhood we claim proudly as our own. I bow my head in deference to these men and acknowledge their influence on me and the selflessness and generosity that they freely extended to the world. Rest In Peace, my brothers.
When the dragons grow too mighty
To slay with pen or sword
I grow weary of the battle
And the storm I walk towards
When all around is madness
And there’s no safe port in view
I long to turn my path homeward
And stop awhile with you
When life becomes as barren
And as cold as winter skies
There’s a beacon in the darkness
In a distant pair of eyes
In vain to search for honor
And in vain to search for truth
But these things can still be given
Your love has shown me proof
