Dancing With Myself: A Dialogue On Gender & Sexuality, Part I

4 years ago with 9 comments in Uncategorized
Joseph Prever and Steve Gershom run into each other at the coffee shop. After they get over their initial surprise at seeing each other in the same place at the same time, and after they are done complimenting each others’ rugged good looks (but before it gets weird), they have a discussion about, what else, gender and sexuality. Joseph, apparently in a cantankerous mood, begins with a ...

Seven Extremely Quick Takes

1: I was just going to take a whole post to say this, but I thought that would be cruel. So I’ll take 1/7 of a post to say it: effective immediately, I will be posting on Sundays instead of Fridays. I’m working on something large & rambling that I really hope will be done by Sunday, and if it is, that’ll be my first Sunday post. 2: This soundtrack is gorgeous, and if my ...

Wednesday Tweet Digest, Vol. 4

4 years ago with 4 comments in Uncategorized
The best (according to me) tweets I have twitted over the course of the previous week or so, as a momentary stay against the essential evanescence of twitter. What can separate us from the love of Christ? Neither counterintuitive syncopations, nor insipid melodies, nor unnecessary key changes… — Joseph Prever (@stevegershom) August 3, 2014 Where do sinners go if they don’t believe ...

Four Short Graybles For My One-Year Outiversary As a Fancy Man

4 years ago with 10 comments in Uncategorized
One year, almost. On August 9, 2013, my WORLD CHANGED FOREVER when I invoked the patronage of Daffy Duck and Edith Stein, in that order, and wrote a post telling the whole world that I [mostly] fancy men, and am therefore, arguably, myself a Fancy Man, which why isn’t that a euphemism yet? (“Did you ever wonder if Joe was a little…you know, Fancy?” “What, you ...

The best (according to me) tweets I have twitted over the course of the previous week or so, as a momentary stay against the essential evanescence of twitter. My phone buzzes and says “4:30 – Meds”. I chuckle at it condescendingly before pushing “dismiss” — Joseph Prever (@stevegershom) July 26, 2014 It’s that critical moment where if I don’t make ...

Give Your Heart

Today’s Gospel1 starts with Jesus going off to hide and be alone so he can process the death of his friend and cousin. But he arrives at his prayer-place — maybe it was his favorite spot, maybe it was where he always went in times of deep distress, to be alone with the Father — to find it overrun with people clamoring for his attention: heal us, help us, give us what ...

What good is having your own blog if you can’t self-promote a little bit? When I’m not sequestering myself in my room to write, I like to sequester myself in my room to make music. Here’s my latest. Share and enjoy. Happy Sunday!

Towards a Post

4 years ago with 3 comments in Uncategorized
It’s a good day, but it’s not a day for finishing posts. A month ago, my therapist cocked her head to the side and asked me in all honesty, “What do you mean by ‘same-sex attraction’?” and I found out that the answer wasn’t simple. I’ve been working on a doozy of a writeup ever since. I hope I finish it some day. Ever hear of the Method Of Loci? ...

The best (according to me) tweets I have twitted over the course of the previous week or so, as a momentary stay against the essential evanescence of twitter. Dammit I specifically picked this cafe because there weren’t supposed to be any hot guys here — Joseph Prever (@stevegershom) July 17, 2014 PSA, being concerned about the awful things that you routinely do does not make you a good ...

At the Grackle: On Fartistry

4 years ago with 1 comment in Uncategorized
I have a new post up at The Grackle Rag. It is about the following story, which did not happen to me but did happen to someone: Today in math class I had the urge to fart.  I thought that if I dropped my book and farted at the same time, no one would hear it.  I dropped my textbook and everyone looked at me.  Then I farted.  Loudly. And what came of that story: I thought about [the story] ...
