Welcome, fellow Pitch Wars contestants, mentors, agents, baffled strangers stumbling across me in a Google search! My name is ADAM SASS (a real name–it’s German/Nordic), I’m entering 2016’s Pitch Wars as a YA author, and this is my “PIMP MY BIO”! I’ve just gone through a major life change. Growing up in...
6 Stupid, Probably Unhealthy Ways I'm Surviving Agent Querying

6 Stupid, Probably Unhealthy Ways I’m Surviving Agent Querying

This is not going to be a love letter to myself, to my work, or to my patient almost-husband.
The Life and Death of a Bookstore's Gay Pride

The Life and Death of a Bookstore’s Gay Pride

As I arrived in West Hollywood in 2008, A Different Light was dying. I don’t have any memories of the queer bookseller other than [...]
Which Books Scare Gay Kids?

Which Books Scare Gay Kids?

All gay kids want to be borne from their bullshit. I did, but if you’d ask me then, I’d have told you that I was married to my bullshit – and by the way, what bullshit? Leave me alone.

Pie Porn

The Kate Winslet buoyed HBO miniseries “Mildred Pierce” just wrapped up it’s laborious five hours. She did her best, it had great production values (production designers! Is there any Hollywood workhorse that’s had more consistent results?), but in the end, the story did not justify it’s runtime. So, sadly, I don’t think I got much...
How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: "Johnnie Red"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: “Johnnie Red”

Of all of Johnnie Walker’s Scotch Whiskeys, Red is the cheapest, and considered to be the least fine of the batch.  I am starting today’s “Drink On” with Red because I quite enjoy a glass of Red.  It’s fiery, it burns and when I drink Black, I feel like it’s a semi-special occasion. However, that’s...
Two Front Teeth

Two Front Teeth

On the evening of May 12, 1956, in the Hollywood Hills, movie star Montgomery Clift was bleeding to death inside his car. Only 8 months previous, James Dean was beheaded in his car.  When Monty heard the news of his contemporary’s death, he was on a cruise ship with torch singer Libby Holman, who later...
Just Off Fountain: "WURSTKUCHE"

Just Off Fountain: “WURSTKUCHE”

Downtown L.A. has a treasure chest of vibrantly creative ways to be yummy.  Take the German sausage restaurant “Wurstkuche,” a warehouse in a shabby part of Downtown (Psst– there’s no non-shabby part of Downtown).   But that’s the point, isn’t it?  Have one of these smash hits in Hollywood and say hello to a way-too-trendy...
How's Adam Getting His Drink On?: "Spring Ahead"

How’s Adam Getting His Drink On?: “Spring Ahead”

The daylight is longer, and unless you have an iPhone or a stupid work computer, your clocks are all caught up with Daylight Savings Time.  Yes, it is a bitch the day it happens.  All that confusion, plus you lose an hour.  But I welcome it!  It’s all about the electrical Spring/early Summer moment when...
Just Off Fountain: "SHAKY ALIBI" Waffles

Just Off Fountain: “SHAKY ALIBI” Waffles

Belgium’s in Los Angeles at Beverly Blvd & Curson, across the street from the Grove Mall.  If there’s one thing LA excels at in the food department, it’s in cheeky experimentation and hidden gems. That’s right, it’s “Just Waffles!” (jazz hands) at Shaky Alibi coffee bar & wafflerie.  Marcus and I spent Presidents’ Day Monday...

As a Subscriber to Stay On Fountain, you have been auto-enrolled in the Husband of the Month Club.  Congratulations!  The man who is selected will be your husband for 30 days, so enjoy!  And for straight men and lesbians (or interested parties who simply don’t care for the man), you will still be sent the...
How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: "The Delicious Sour"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: “The Delicious Sour”

William Schmidt wanted to be an individual. Hard for a man named William to be distinguishable, even in the 1890’s.  This is why William went by the moniker William “The Only William” Schmidt. This is just the kind of turn of the (other) century nonsense I love. Schmidt was a connoisseur of Lady Liquor, and...
No Debate Today

No Debate Today

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Today is a big day because, being Monday, a day one typically goes back to work, State Senators and State Representatives across the country have found themselves passing the gay marriage pendulum back and forth.  Indiana, New Hampshire, Iowa, Hawaii, Maryland are all debating pro and anti-gay amendments to their state constitutions....
How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: Apple Brandy Rickey

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: Apple Brandy Rickey

I was recently diagnosed with cataracts.  That’s right, cataracts on a 27 year old.  Tsk-tsk, as if I needed more things to feel old about.  Apparently, a simple surgery will take care of both the cataracts, as well as making possible for me to see clearly without glasses or contacts.  So…I suppose this is, in...
How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: "Winter Sangria"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: “Winter Sangria”

How am I getting my drink on in the New Year?  Winter Sangria! How is Winter Sangria different than Summer Sangria?  The fruit you put in it, basically.  Summer’s all about Mangos, Pineapples, Crushed Pom Seeds, and… whoo boy, I kind of want Summer Sangria now.  But we’ve got a long ways to go before...
Goodbye, Little Gay Code! (to the tune of "Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road")

Goodbye, Little Gay Code! (to the tune of “Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road”)

Here’s a bit of surprising news: Cambridge researches have found that, like Latin and Esperanto before it, the gay subculture code language, Polari,is facing extinction. Here’s another bit of surprising news:  There is a gay subculture code language, and it’s called Polari.  THAT.  IS.  COOL. So, it’s going away, and I just found out this...
