..............and here we have a treat. Scott from Bill In Exile is back for a part 2 of the profile that got the most traffic ever on my blog. Now some would use the term groupie - but I am a great admirer of Scott.
He represents a minority of gay men these days - cultured, urbane, witty, intelligent, insightful. Yes, he is also a pig with a penchant for porn and some of the PRETTIEST boyfriends you will ever see BUT it is part of the picture and not the WHOLE picture. Some of you lads could learn a thing or too from this.
Oh - and I just had to throw my 2 cents worth in at certain points as well because these answers deserve some worship. I'm in PINK. Surprise.
(2CW) Hey Scott- welcome back mate !
Glad to be back. You know, you're the only blogger I would do one of these for don't you?
And I am grateful that a mensch like you said yes to my request - twice :)
The man himself
Not too bad actually. They took my appendix out and that healed fine......for a bit.
(2CW) Now since you were last here, a lot has happened in your life. Why don't you bring us all up to date?
Wellll, after the appendectomy one of the incision sites got badly infected so I got rushed back to the hospital where they opened me up again in order to scrape out the abscess. They had to leave the wound open -- it was so big that they couldn't suture it -- so now, and for the next couple of weeks, I've got a hole in my stomach that you can slip three or four quarters stacked on top of each other into.
(2CW) How are you doing being on your own with the puppies?
The dogs miss Richard. Me? Not so much.
Liar .......... :)
(2CW) How was your Summer in Seattle this year? Did you get a good one this year?
Summer here tends toward the beautiful -- our weather comes from Hawaii during the summer -- but this summer was a once in a century summer. We had gorgeous weather pretty much non stop from May until the end of September. Although, the last week of July was hot. In fact it got to 107 degrees here one day and was actually hotter here that day than at Death Valley -- usually the hottest spot in America.
(2CW) Lets get down to politics coz you know how much I love that. Let's start off with the obvious. Joe Wilson. I am not even going to use his proper form of address. Can you believe this douche broke ALL the rules and heckled during a Presidential address??? 1st time in the history of the Capitol. Nancy Pelosi looked like she was gonna do a twirl and put the smack down on his ass.
(2CW) Has the political right suffered a group acquired brain injury recently?
(2CW) And the whole "Gay Marriage is Socialism?" That one makes me laugh so hard I pee myself a litte. You have to love ignorant people who actively demonstrate their Appalacian-backass-country-fuck education which only serves to highlight one single fact........................... they are douches........... and stupid ones at that.
(2CW) As a Jew I have to say that I am pretty disgusted not only at the overt racism being chucked at the President but also that these meat heads are throwing in Nazi references as well?
You know Damien, that's really not all that unusual in American politics. We've got this wide and deep strain of racism that runs through our country and its always been right out there on display for everyone to see. Its just gotten more out there and in your face since November when all of these fuckwitted bigots lost their God given right to not have a black president and are now all pissed off about it.
The overt racism we are now seeing is just stomach turning.....
I give him a Gentleman's C teetering on a C minus if he doesn't pull his head out of his ass. I think he's made a huge mistake spending too much time trying to win bipartisan support for his policies from republicans who have no investiture in anything other than seeing him fail and who have demonstrated zero willingness to negotiate in good faith. He's done so at the expense of good policy, giving away things in the health care debate that didn't need to be given away.
I also think that he and Tim Geithner have done nothing to curb the excesses of the bankers and Wall Streeters that brought our economy to the edge of ruin. He's also been abysmal when it comes to gay issues and there I give him an F. I think his embrace of Bush era anti-terror polices such as the Patriot Act and his willingness to detain people without charges and to continue the Bush era surveillance polices are outrageous as well.
(2CW) It is the 70th Anniversary since the start of World War II. My grandad was an American GI who fought in the Pacific. Interestingly enough we have seen Nazi references used by Birthers, college guys in New Zealand dressing up as Jewish concentration camp prisoners, an Australian Radio host who used concentration camp references and several other bits in the news all about the tacky use of WWII images and references. Have we failed to educate the current generation about the sacrifice and horror of that period?+
Yes and no. I think that we don't focus on stuff like this because its hard and because people want to forget it all. But at the same time even if you did educate people better you run up against the problem that not only is it hard and people want to forget it but many people are also stupid and racist -- and a lot of them like being that way.
I just do not understand people who want to remain "intentionally ignorant"!
(2CW) I love the Military Porn you show on BIE. For those who have no clue what that is - Active Duty and Military Classified aside - can you explain what it is?
Military Porn is, quite simply, military weaponry. Shit blowing up. And people blowing shit up. A picture or a YouTube of an AC-130 "Spooky" Gunship firing all of its weapons on a night mission is the epitome of Mil/Porn. Google it and after watching it for a while tell me it didn't get your dick hard.
(2CW) It seems to me that we are totally losing our civilty these days. We just do not seem to be as respectful and as mindful a society as we once was. Would you agree or disagree?
We were civil once? When was that because I'm pretty sure I missed it.
I think we once were - at least at the societal level.
That boy is fucking convinced that Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a dinosaur. You've just gotta love a person who so convinced of his righteousness in spite of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Did you see him in the tee vee version of The Left Behind series? They should have given him an Emmy for Earnestness.
Kanye has clearly been surrounded too long by yes men and go on girls. He needs to get out from his bubble and he'll realize that he's just a poor dumb asshole like the rest of us.
(2CW) Onto men - and hot men - namely your exes. You CERTAINLY know how to pick hot, handsome men. You are also very good friends with all of them it seems. Most gay men I know have that rule "Exes are exes for a reason and that makes them my enemy". Now I've had a couple of break ups where it was acrimonious and parting ways was the right thing to do. But I have also had some exes that I did stay friends with. How have you managed it?
Plus, all my Exes are really hot and I like having them around so that as I enter my dotage I am able to be reminded that I was, at one time, capable of scoring hot menz like them.
(2CW) On to Porn - WOO HOO !!! (Come one Scott - you know how much of a piglet I am :) - What's happening in your life in the world of cock, butt and cum? Any news? Anything you wanna share :) ?
Absolutely NOTHING if you can believe. I've been very very calm the past couple of years.
Oh dear :(
(2CW) In a recent post on your blog about how lacking the art of true cocksucking is - I can't agree more - you made mention that you produce porn. Do tell?
I consider Bill in Exile porn. I mean, I get banned from enough links from other blogs because they deem my blog porn so I consider the fact that I produce the blog as the same as producing porn. My blog is banned in China for that very reason you know.
(2CW) How are the Hot House guys? They visited you recently didn't they? If you saw my Porn Star profile recently he said a number of highly complimentary things about them. They really do seem to be the standard of how companies should operate.
Actually, they'll be here in three days! Hall of Fame director and Hot House President Steven Scarborough and his BF Brent, the HH VP/Creative Director (and my Ex) arrive here on Friday Oct. 2 to help me celebrate my 50th birthday.
(2CW) You've been puttting up some bareback vids on your site recently? Any backlash because of that? I love 'em. Keep 'em coming.
(2CW) You're turning 50 very soon. Firstly, Mazel Tov and may HaShem keep you safe and healthy for many more birthdays to come. How you feeling? Do you have a big birthbay bash planned or more of a laid back do?

(2CW) So what's next for you and your blog Big Fella?
Well, I've got a big business project that is going to start impacting my time soon so I'm trying to figure out how to keep the blog from suffering because of it. Hopefully it won't but if it does I trust you to let me know.
Thank you Scott - Enjoy all!
