the greatest beauty is

Organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things,

the divine beauty of the universe.

Love that, not man apart from that,

or else you will share man’s pitiful confusions,

or drown in despair when his days darken."

I remember! I was naive enough at the time not to realize a gay bathhouse's function as hookup central. I thought it was a spa.

 

When I first heard the weho boys refer to the bh as a spa I thought they really meant a spa. I'm glad I'm not the only one lol

 

Hugs,

Greg

Several years ago I was on a blind date and he started peppering me with questions like "boxers or briefs" "pajamas or naked" and then he asked "Madonna or Cher." I answered "Bette." He was puzzled.

 

Was there ever a second date? I'm guessing "no."

 

If I'd had the aplomb to think of it, I'd have responded the same way.

You guessed correctly.

If I'd had the aplomb to think of it, I'd have responded the same way.

 

It's the sort of reply I'd wake up at 3am and think that is what I should have said.

 

Both of my parents were quick with snappy answers to dumb questions, so my brother and I come by it honestly. He married a woman who is the same way, so you can imagine what family gatherings are like.

 

Maybe that's why I prefer Bette to the others. ;)

I might have come out with either "Piaf" or "Little Richard." :rolleyes:

While Charlie was spending time at the Continental :rolleyes: I was just coming out but not by all that much. My first boyfriend was a drunk, and by association, I became a huge Jane Olivor fan.

 

I'll never regret that part. The Jane Olivor Part.

 

Sadly, there are few videos available on YouTube of her music in concert

 

We had many of these.......

Bathhouse Bette was released around the same time as Cher's Believe. There were rumors that the record execs from each label wanted to piggyback sales of one with the other to maximize the traffic of gay men in record stores. Remember, this was during the fairly early days of illegal downloading. There was also an ersatz rivalry manufactured between the two artists to rev up publicity. With the huge success of the title track "Believe" Bette's release didn't see the success it should have. As a whole, it is a much better album. Well IMHO anyway.
