Welcome to My La-La Life!!!

Well, folks, here it is--my very first blog entry! Everyone else seems to be getting in on this thing these days, but for some reason, I seem to have fallen behind. I wanted to get a blog up and running on my professional site, HollywoodKen.com (which is actually not functional right now, but will be again soon), but until I purchase my own domain and all that good stuff, this will have to do for now. It's a cool way for me to keep you up to date on my latest news tidbits and stuff like that, especially now that my first book, Homocore: The Loud and Raucous Rise of Queer Rock(Alyson Books), is officially in stores (though the release date is not actually until Aug. 30).

Anyway, here's some rather cool news: I had my first book signing over at A Different Light in West Hollywood the other weekend, and it went pretty well. A lot of people who are profiled in the book came out to get their copies signed, as did a few of my good friends, and there was a rather cute couple of guys there who came out as well having just read about the signing in the paper or something. So that was pretty neat. I'm posting a pic of me at the signing here, so you can see how happy I looked that day.

There are some other cool things coming up, such as a book release party in September over at the Gauntlet II, one of L.A.'s premiere leather bars, and a few other articles and interviews as well. I will try to post them all as I find out about them myself.

In the meantime, I've started work on my next book, tentatively titled The SeXXX-Files: The History of Gay Porn and Its Influence on Gay Male Sexuality, which should keep me quite busy for some time with research and interviews and all that good stuff. I'm very excited about it, as it's given me somewhere to focus my energy in the wake of the brush-off I got from the hot guy I was dating who decided to go back to his ex. Whatever.

Masha the kitty is doing just fine. For those not yet acquainted with my wonderful furry little soul mate, here she is. She's been with me for the past eight years of my life, and she is, quite frankly, the greatest friend I could ask for. Isn't she just so damned cute?

So yeah, Masha is doing fine, and well, slightly broken heart aside, I'm not doing too shabby myself. I got to meet Rufus Wainwright the other night, so check back for my next blog entry, when I'll be posting a pic or two from that fun night!

Anyway, that's all for my very first blog entry. Just wanted to give it a shot and see how it turns out. Hope you keep checkin' back. Take care, and talk soon.

XOXO,
Ken

Very Cool Ken! Looks like you've been busy. Would like to read your interview with Bob Mould. Can you send it to me?

Hey Ken! Nice kitty you got there. A few years back I was ltalking to a breeder about getting a Manx cat like our old pal Stokie, but it was too much money at the time. I ended up getting a kitty at my local cat clinic that was left on the side of the road in a bag :( He's a fixed up and fat now.

My two kitties are here:
