Bronycon, first impressions and a defense of bronies

Bronycon, first impressions and a defense of bronies

Many years ago, when I was in high school, we had open lunches. That means that students were allowed to eat wherever they wanted in the schools. So imagine the stereotypical divided lunchroom from every teen movie ever, now imagine that the cliques could exist in different halls and wings of the school and never have to interact. That’s how mine was. My point is that there were cliques I didn’t understand. I was by no … Read entire article »

SpaceManAndy’s Parting Advice

Parting is such sweet sorrow. It’s been fun, guys and girls. I’ve been doing my advice column here for a few years now, and I’ve enjoyed every unpaid minute of it! But, it’s time for me to move on. Starting very soon, I’ll be doing my advice column over at The B, under the name OutWords as part of their Gay Matters blog (It will also be in print weekly in B). Yes, it will be … Read entire article »

Why SpaceManAndy has no guilty pleasures, and you shouldn’t either.

Why SpaceManAndy has no guilty pleasures, and you shouldn’t either.

I have no guilty pleasures. “But SpaceManAndy” you say, “I’ve seen you tweet about General Hospital. Soaps are the epitome of guilty pleasures, right?” Wrong. I don’t feel guilty about watching soap operas. Not one bit. Soap Operas are just another medium for story telling, and a rather unique one at that. Soaps, like comic books are unique in that the story lines can go on for decades. I’m talking real time here. The actors, directors, … Read entire article »

SpaceManAndy’s Advice for Back in the Game

SpaceManAndy’s Advice for Back in the Game

Dear SpaceManAndy, I got out of a 6 year relationship about 8 months ago and have been enjoying getting back into the dating field. My problem is that one of the gentlemen I am seeing has been seeming like he’d like to get more serious than I am ready for. We haven’t discussed exclusivity and should it come up I will of course let him know that it’s not something I’m ready for yet. My question … Read entire article »

SpaceManAndy’s Advice for What What in the Butt?

Dear SpaceManAndy, I have a new guy in my life and he’s all about ass play, but I never really have been into it before.

SpaceManAndy to Chuck Norris: You want a piece of me?! I can take you!!

SpaceManAndy to Chuck Norris: You want a piece of me?! I can take you!!

As you may or may not have seen, Chuck Norris has shaved his beard! Anyone else feel like they just witnessed Sampson’s hair cutting? His power is gone. Contrary to popular belief, there was a chin under his beard, and not another fist. Who knew? I feel like all those Chuck Norris so-called-facts are also debunked. I have serious doubts now about his ability to push the earth down instead of doing a push up. There were … Read entire article »

SpaceManAndy’s Advice for Is Three Really Company?

Dear SpaceMan, We are Joe and Rob, are a young couple looking to get a place together. Rob already has a roommate, we’ll call him Drew. Drew and Joe get along famously. We would have a lot more flexibility in the type of housing and our price range if we consider having Drew go in on the next house with us. Our reasons for wanting to live together are as much about being practical (location, optimizing … Read entire article »

Some Very Special (& Unsolicited) Valentine’s Day Advice from SpaceManAndy

Some Very Special (& Unsolicited) Valentine’s Day Advice from SpaceManAndy

Nobody wrote in about this, but I feel like it needs to be said. All over the internet, I see “I hate Valentine’s day!” “It’s a hallmark holiday” “It’s a day designed to make money” “I can’t afford to do Valentine’s Day” “It’s sexist and all about men spending money on women” Good lord, people! You’d think with this wild down-with-the-man independent streak, the battle cry should be “Don’t tell me how to celebrate my love” … Read entire article »

SpaceManAndy’s Advice for Unrequited Puppy Love in Remington

SpaceManAndy’s Advice for Unrequited Puppy Love in Remington

Dear SpaceManAndy, My dog loves my girlfriend. He like me, but he loves my girlfriend. We only got him a few weeks ago, but it’s clear who he prefers. I mean, she is better at training dogs than I am, so she has been training him, so he gets treats from her a lot, so that’s part of it. The other part is that every day since we got him, I’ve had to bring work home … Read entire article »

SpaceManAndy’s Advice for Overcome by Oversharers

SpaceManAndy’s Advice for Overcome by Oversharers

Dear SpaceManAndy So, I work in an “open office” where none of us have our own offices, we’re all in open cubes. There are a few coworkers that are unprofessional and loud in the office throughout the day (personal phone calls, loud discussions with each other about NSFW things, etc.). How should I deal with this? I already wear headphones about 80% of the time in the office, but that is acting more as a band-aid … Read entire article »
