This item is completely fucking random, but whatever. In a recent issue of GQ Magazine, Elton John started talking about all the projects he has in the pipeline, like anyone under the age of 50 gives a shit what Elton John does these days. But the one interesting nugget he dropped was a Broadway production he was writing for Ben Stiller:

“It’s about a guy on Broadway who is gay, has HIV and AIDS, and has to go back and face his wife and his kids that he left. It’s very funny. The premise doesn’t sound funny, but it is. All right?”

Ha! No. That is funny, Elton. I mean: He’s gay, has HIV and AIDS. And he’s played by Ben Stiller? Hilarious!

The fuck, dude? It’s not the 80s anymore. Or even the 90s. AIDS-themed stories have absolutely no resonance in 2008. Did you know, for instance, that in large swaths of America, they don’t even care if you’re gay anymore. No. Seriously. In fact, even if you’re straight, it’s totally acceptable now to admit raging, hard-core man crushes. Not that I’d know.

I was once in a frat, for instance. But you know what? I can now safely admit that I like the feel of soft Pashmina scarves on my face. Pashmina scarves, like these, which are free with a $150 order at Fabulous Stationary!


How’s that for seamless product placement, folks? I just wanted to see if I could do it. Take that, Tina Fey!

But seriously: Now through December 19th, you’ll get a Fabulous FREE Pashmina scarf with any order of $150 or more. This year Trish designed three rich ombre palettes with the season’s hottest colors. This is positively the softest, most luscious Pashmina Fab Stationary have ever offered. And I say that as a completely straight man who’d never touch Ryan Reynolds’ hard, sculpted abs if offered the opportunity.
