Why Can’t We Just Be Gay?

If you’ve listened to any of the Mediafile Podcasts with me on them, you’ll notice that we mention a lot that I am not from Rhode Island/New England. This is strange for anyone living in New England as they mostly don’t seem to notice that there’s a world outside of their corner. (Sorry, guys, I gotta get my jokes in where I can…)

The thing about being from the South is that yeah, people tend to be a little more narrow-minded when it comes to, well, everything. That’s okay though because there are also some amazing people from the South, too.

Today though, I was very disturbed to see that an openly-gay man in the Country music-scene, Joey Greenwell,  is now claiming that he’s straight and is going by Nate Green. Check the main article out by clicking me.

The New Aperture Chat Short Form

Aside

The guys at Aperture Chat have completely revamped their programming this week.  Rather than one long podcast style video each week, the new format focuses on having 5 daily segments, each focusing on what was one part of the podcast previously.

Monday News
Keeping you up to date.
Tuesday Product Previews and Reviews
The More Money Than Brains Club
Wednesday The Two-Way
A weekly discussion and debate.
Thursday News Redux
Because news comes more than once a week.
Friday Games and Challenges

The new format begins with Episode 15: Welcome to the New Format.  This much more easily digestible format, which they make light of as “daily chunks that you can watch while you eat your breakfast,” is generally 15-18 minutes in duration.  Even if you’re not the least bit interested in photography, they are fairly entertaining, and it’s generally not too nerdy.
