NEON HITCH BEHIND the SCENES + PERFORMANCE!! (klik here)
In the last 15 years or so, chances are, if you’ve been to one of the Pier Dance that caps Gay Pride, Friday night at Splash Bar, Great Adventure during the annual Out @ Night at Six Flags, Asbury Park’s Sand Blast, or a hell of a lot of other events in New York or nationally, you may have noticed the name Mark Nelson somewhere on the invite or the club marquee.
Nelson is not one of New York’s most active promoters and producers of dance parties; if you can name one of the gay icons, chances are Nelson has worked with him or (more usually) her.
Nelson rarely takes the spotlight himself; instead, he prefers to remain an eagle-eyed observer behind the scenes, where he ensures everything comes off as planned. So who is the man behind the curtain?
Nelson has come a long way since growing up in a church-going family in the wilds of Minnesota, where he was regularly taunted for being gay.
EDGE got the big blond muscular Nelson to open up and dish the nightlife scene. And has he got More >
The modern use of the word mentor: A trusted friend, counselor or teacher, usually a more experienced person
Without others to follow & learn from, life would be so much more challenging
FYI: Father Day is Sunday (public service announcement) My Father turns 82 on Saturday – simply amazing.
I see my Father daily in my mind. I attempt to channel him when I can. He created a wonderful family and life for the Nelson clan w/ my Mom. Not the perfect family; they do not exist My Father is the most trusting, honest, hard-working & loving man I know. He shows this thru his daily activities & how he takes care of Mom & my brother and sister. He still mows the Lions Park in Merrifield, MN + fixes furnaces & anything else their church needs. He runs around w/ a bunch of other 80 something men, who have lived full lives & raised families of their own. Dad will take in information, process it & then carefully word or make a response I am still working on being like that I am too quick to respond Character flaws – I have plenty of them
Mentors share experiences, so others can skip the More >

Ok: Ms Bachmann I was suppose to go to Anoka high-school. The Nelson Clan lived in the middle of nowhere You know that place. It is between the boon-dogs & soybean fields for as far as the eye can see, w/ a hint of cow manure floating thru the air. Barn cats, gophers (Minnesota), bears (I never saw one), apple pie (It is early as I write you, and my sweet tooth is More >
I have waited my whole life to feel the earth move. Mind you, I have had sex where I thought the earth move But that is an entirely another conversation
Do you remember the Wrigley Extra Gum commercial where the woman missed seeing the elusive blue back whale? In case you need to jar your memory: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjeD_G0m0Kc Well, that was how I felt when I was alerted to the Quake on Tuesday I missed it! And I was sitting @ my desk in the heart of Manhattan.
Oh well, what is it w/ all these crazy things going on? I am sure there are international comments about the Washington Monument cracking about a higher being sending a message∑ The again, DC is on a swamp; from what I gather
Good old NYC is on bedrock. ______________________________________________________

It rained in the city; but in New Jersey; other then a slight sprinkle @ 8pm for a bit: The weather was magnificent! At the Park itself tho: We had a great time!! For those who went More >
