A return to blah blah blahdiddy

Okay, this first one requires some explanation: last week, CityPages (the big free weekly here in the Twin Cities) featured a cover story on "rock's next big gay thing" -- the current big gay thing, presumably, being Ricky Martin -- a shitty faux-metal band called Faggot. The band is fronted by a likable-seeming 48-year-old gay man named Tim Carroll, who apparently views the noxious, untalented shock-rock group as therapy for the tragedies in his life, including the death of his lover of many years and seeing a friend of his beaten to death in a gay-bashing incident. Fine; more power to him. He seems like a fine fellow. Less fine, though, is the group's manager, guitarist, mastermind and provocateur, a repugnant hipster named Jason Wade (who is, like the other two people in the band, not gay). Every time the article mentions anything at all about him, you just want to punch him in the face. So:
