Guess why I donned all purple for today?
What's Lovely for October 20, 2010 (10/20/10!):
In continuing my penchant for finding things in unexpected places, I'd like to point out this heart made out of ... space fabric wrapped around heater. Screw Valentine cards, nothing's more romantically sweet than this.

Gogol Bordello got it right when he warbled in his quasi-Russian: start wearing purple for me now. Then again, he didn't really finish that sentence with "for raising awareness of anti-gay bullying." Unfortunately those lyrics weren't as catchy, so it ended up on the cutting room floor. Despite this, the song played on sporadic repeat in my head as I walked around decked out in more purple than a stereotypical pimp. And much like a pimp, I
felt like I had to slap some rakes and hos around loved to help a brother/sister/anything-in-between out in a tiny way.
And here's my gift to you. This song. Enjoy it. Dance to it. Wear purple to it.
Two reasons you know this is a true man: his mustache and the fact that he can somehow pull off drag.
