And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT to … Dan Bucatinsky.

Dan did many guest appearances on network shows (most memorably as an obnoxious blind date for Will on Will & Grace), and in 2005 he guest-starred in and exec. produced his creative partner Lisa Kudrow’s short-lived classic The Comeback. I’d still be upset about its demise, but … angry hurts my throat.

And now we have the 50 GREATEST LOST HITS OF THE 90’S! I’ve often ragged on the pop music of the 90’s for being an arid desert devoid of fun, but there were bright spots, including these 50 songs, which should have performed better on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Like The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80’s countdown, this list is very female-centric (what can I say, I like rock chicks), but hopefully, some of these pop gems may trigger a long dormant memory.

At #40 is … “Martika’s Kitchen” by Martika. My favorite Kids, Inc. diva (sorry, Stacey), Martika hit it big with her debut album. It yielded three top 40 hits, including the #1 classic “Toy Soldiers.” She enlisted Prince’s help to produce her second album, and the first single “Love … Thy Will Be Done” sailed up to #10. But the album flopped, peaking at #111, and the second single and title track, “Martika’s Kitchen” debuted on the Hot 100 at #93 … where it peaked, spending just two weeks on the chart. And that was it for Martika, who would never hit the chart again. She continues to make music independently, but I was shocked her pop career had such a short shelf life.
