Skim Milk came when we thought that eating less fat would make us thinner. In fact, Europe only drinks whole milk and we are far fatter than them. Diet Coke was made to decrease sugar, but studies show it may kill us in other ways. In both cases, without fat and sugar, we are less satiated and eat more.
Apparently, when people were fainting in theatres during the film's original 1973 release, it was mostly from THIS scene (at URL below) and not from any of the demon-exorcising or bedroom scenes. Does this scene make you feel queasy enough to faint? I have no idea what this procedure is called (an arteriogram?), but I admit to feeling too light-headed to see the entire scene all the way through. (I know, Mary!)
This guy chats me up out of the blue this morning on Scruff: "Hi". I look at his profile and he's okay, nothing special. I write back: "Hi". I mean, he said hi first, right? And I'm not that interested, but I'm also not against people saying hi to me and I don't want to be rude, but the conversational ball is in his court, IMO. So he writes back: "Good Morning" I write back "Good morning to you" He writes back "thanks". "Thanks"? What am I supposed to do with that? Is this how people flirt now? I've had more memorable conversations with toll booth operators.
So whatever happened to him anyway? There was a guy with his whole career behind him!
I am sorry I felt adamantly about the hate crime in Philadelphia. Making people feel bad in Philly or worse, was not my intention. I apologies for that. People who disagreed, I just fervently believe when some thing THAT heinous happens, the GLBT community should hit back with our biggest weapon: our wealth. Again, sorry to the people who live in Philly and were offended. I live in a city with many faults: Atlanta. (No, not in a trailer or in one of the many other less desirable southern states.) I take on my city and its loads of problems all the time. No, I was not trying to make it about me. Just wanted to share my attitude when I hear about such scary crimes happening in any place: Egypt. Russia, etc. -- I want to do something. But here's the thing, I am a real person and 90% of the time post my name and own my snakiness, bitchiness or in this case to some, insane ideas. There are people on here who know me in real life. I don't mind getting real feedback or truly snarky funny slaps back. But just trying to denigrate me cause you don't agree, is just mean and speaks volumes about your psyche and your personality. Particularly when you hide behind anonymity. I love the random bitchiness, but if you are just being nasty, then bitch call Miss Jackson. Hope I haven't taken up too much of your time...

I was there today and could not believe my eyes. Almost everything in the food department had gone up between 3 - 5 dollars just since I was there 3 weeks ago. I mean my god, I get a 40 or 50 cent rise but this is ridiculous. Has someone new taken over Costco. Are they becoming the new Whole Foods? I'll give you one example...the 4 lb sticks of butter was 8.99 3 weeks ago and is now 12.99. The Alaska wild smoked salmon was 15.99 for a pound an is not 18.99. These are the only two I remember but at least another dozen items I looked at had a similar raise of 3 - 5 dollars. I'm sure had I known last month's prices of every item sold I would have seen those have gone up greatly too. I walked out without buying anything. My guess is everything in the non foods like aluminum foil and garbage bags and water and such has gone way up too. I'm done with Costco. I can do much better waiting for sales at my local supermarkets.
Kathleen King first marketed her cookies under the name Kathleen's. They were the fist really crispy chocolate chip cookies. In the past few weeks I tried some competitors' crispy chocolate chip cookies and the don't compare. Tate's cookies don't crumble into a mess. And when I eat the competition, tiny crumbs get down into my gums. Tate's is a robust crispy cookie. I used to buy them at the bakery and bring them to my friends, but now I see they're all over the place. I also like their shortbread cookies, but people who like shortbread are very particular, so they might not be universally liked. But you can't not like the chocolate chip cookies.
OK, I always used to admire the guy as a straight shooter (no pun intended)...but an honest, down-to-earth bloke and a great guitarist. Sadly, I found his book totally self-congratulatory, DULL, and full of blame for Mick Jagger, who basically SAVED HIS ASS on numerous occasions while he was in a druggy haze and saved the band he so loves keeping Keith in fine riches. He even criticized the guy's penis size. WTF?? He also acted like a totally out-of-it father who used his young son as his guardian while he was nodding off on some drug or other. He's honest about it, great, but not remorseful. I have to admire him for staying married to Patti Hansen for so long and raising two more kids out of the limelight more or less, but good lord, he takes obliviousness and blame to the next level in this book. Anyone else read it? I wouldn't mind hashing (again no pun...) it out!

Rob Ford has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The Toronto mayor has a “fairly aggressive” type of malignant liposarcoma in his abdomen – an unusual cancer that affects soft tissues in the body. He will soon undergo chemotherapy at Mount Sinai hospital. “I'm optimistic about treatment,” said Dr Zane Cohen, who is overseeing his treatment. “It's a rare tumour, a very difficult tumour.” Doctors have found two tumours – one measuring 12cm by 12cm in his abdomen and another smaller 2cm one his left buttock, which are believed to have developed over the past three years. Within the next 48 hours, Ford will start three days of “fairly intense” chemotherapy. He will then be given a break of 18 days, before undergoing a second round of treatment.
I've done everything to get rid of them. They are too smart. There's one who takes a nuclear shit every morning at 2:30am. It's 2:30am. He just did it, somewhere on this floor of the house. I hate him so much. Don't post. I just wanted to tell somebody.
I was just talking with a female friend who said she feels unsafe when men catcall her. But unless it happens at night or when she's vulnerable (i.e. drunk or alone), wouldn't it be flattering? I wonder if a lot of women pretend to be annoyed when they really love it.
No, the Palins weren't there. There was blood on the dance floor and holes in the walls of a Buffalo country club after a wedding reception descended into a brawl that required cops from seven different police departments to break up, according to eyewitness accounts. No one was arrested, but police are reviewing video of the fight, which broke out at Orchard Park Country Club Saturday after the reception for a local couple with about 200 guests wrapped up at 11 p.m., The Buffalo News reported. Police were called at 10:18 p.m. when a member of the wedding party — accused of inappropriately touching a woman — was punched in the face, Orchard Park police Lt. Patrick Fitzgerald said. The accused man was escorted from the grounds, but that incident was the spark of a much larger melee once the event ended. "I'm telling you, there was blood everywhere," a witness who worked the event but asked not be identified told The Buffalo News. "There was holes punched in the walls. Words couldn't describe it. Just when you thought it was over, another fight started." When police arrived a second time they saw more than 100 people fighting both inside the banquet hall and outside the country club, according to WIVB. It took more than 15 minutes for police to calm the situation. A 39-year-old man was treated for a head injury at a local hospital, but several others refused medical attention. Holes were punched into the banquet hall walls, drinking glasses and crystal bowls were shattered and [bold]blood saturated the facility[/bold], Fitzgerald said. So much for the honeymoon. The bride was ushered out a back door for her safety while the groom tried to break up the brawl, The Buffalo News reported. "It was hard to sort it out who the instigators were," Orchard Park police Chief Mark Pacholec told WIVB. "There was a lot of yelling and pushing and shoving going on. There was over 100 people there from what my officer described. We're still looking into the cause. There were some reports that someone grabbed someone inappropriately. We don't know if it's that or a family feud issue but we don't know what the issue was."
It's a beautiful city (in parts) but I'm sick of the obscenely high rents, the tech bros who all look the same, the pretentious hipsters, and the lack of decent public transportation. There's also not arts culture here. No underground scenes or movements or anything. Is Oakland better? Any other major cities you'd recommend?
I just finished the book "Thing of Beauty" (which I recommend) It's a great look at a different era. It was sad how many people in her life insisted that she couldn't be gay b/c she was so pretty. It also sounded like her narcissistic mom really did a number on her and made her a raging borderline. It sounded like there was some growth. Did any of you know any of these characters? I'm particularly fascinated by Way Bandy and some of the photographers. Also, the book didn't say it, but I get the distinct impression that Patti Hansen was the one who introduced her to heroin.
Told you I was harcore. [quote] REDDING, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California man has been arrested after his ex-girlfriend said he cooked her dog and fed it to her. Ryan Watenpaugh of Palo Cedro was arrested Thursday. He remains jailed Friday. Watenpaugh's ex told police he had repeatedly struck her while they were dating and that after one assault, she left her Redding apartment and returned to find her Pomeranian, "Bear," missing. Police say the couple briefly reconciled last week and Watenpaugh cooked the woman a meal. But she told police he later texted her and asked how her dog had tasted. On Tuesday, Watenpaugh allegedly left two of the dog's paws outside her door. Police say Watenpaugh has denied killing or cooking the dog. He was booked for animal cruelty, domestic violence, stalking and false imprisonment.
Is anyone else looking forward to this new Ken Burns series? Three fascinating historical figures, one of them voiced by our own Meryl! Also, what are your favorite Ken Burns series? I have to admit that I never watched The Civil War, but I loved Baseball and Jazz.
Reading through the World War Z thread and couldn't believe the number of people who put the guy down. Do any of you recall that he donated over $100K toward the defeat of Prop 8 in California. He also famously stated that he would not get married until gays and lesbians were also afforded the right to marry. There are a lot of people out there deserving of a certain amount of disdain, but he certainly is not one of them. Lay off, why don't you?
I always loved his music. He had some amazing gospel roots and could hit the bottom notes as well. I still have several of his albums which I was able to get on my computer. The last time I saw him was back in Brooklyn NY at the Odyssey, not too long before his death in 1988.

Per CNN News Break: [quote]Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce giant, secured its place in history as the largest U.S.-listed initial public offering of all time. Demand was strong for the mega IPO, which priced at $68 per share. At that price, the IPO raised $21.8 billion, the largest ever for a company listed on an American exchange. Including the shares that underwriters have the option to purchase, Alibaba's IPO would raise $25 billion -- the biggest haul on record in the world.
I see thread after thread expressing that sentiment, yet they're terrific in oatmeal cookies, toast, meatballs ... and all sorts of things. Do you folks hate cranberries, too?
He may have convinced himself that he’s the Most Rational Man Alive, but if wants to be the face of a welcoming movement, he’s doing a terrible job I became an atheist on my own, but it was Richard Dawkins who strengthened and confirmed my decision. For a long time, I admired his insightful science writing, his fierce polemics, his uncompromising passion for the truth. When something I’d written got a (brief) mention in The God Delusion, it was one of the high points of my life. So, I’m not saying this is easy, but I have to say it: Richard Dawkins, I’m just not that into you anymore. The atheist movement – a loosely-knit community of conference-goers, advocacy organizations, writers and activists – has been wracked by infighting the last few years over its persistent gender imbalance and the causes of it. Many female atheists have explained that they don’t get more involved because of the casual sexism endemic to the movement: parts of it see nothing problematic about hosting conferences with all-male speakers or having all-male leadership – and that’s before you get to the vitriolic and dangerous sexual harassment, online and off, that’s designed to intimidate women into silence. Richard Dawkins has involved himself in some of these controversies, and rarely for the better – as with his infamous “Dear Muslima” letter in 2011, in which he essentially argued that, because women in Muslim countries suffer more from sexist mistreatment, women in the west shouldn’t speak up about sexual harassment or physical intimidation. There was also his sneer at women who advocate anti-sexual harassment policies. But over the last few months, Dawkins showed signs of détente with his feminist critics – even progress. He signed a joint letter with the writer Ophelia Benson, denouncing and rejecting harassment; he even apologized for the “Dear Muslima” letter. On stage at a conference in Oxford in August, Dawkins claimed to be a feminist and said that everyone else should be, too. Then another prominent male atheist, Sam Harris, crammed his foot in his mouth and said that atheist activism lacks an “estrogen vibe” and was “to some degree intrinsically male”. And, just like that, the brief Dawkins Spring was over. On Twitter these last few days, Dawkins has reverted to his old, sexist ways and then some. He’s been very busy snarling about how feminists are shrill harridans who just want an excuse to take offense, and how Harris’s critics (and his own) are not unlike thought police witch-hunter lynch mobs. Dawkins claimed that his critics are engaged in “clickbait for profit”, that they “fake outrage”, and that he wished there were some way to penalize them. For good measure, Dawkins argued that rape victims shouldn’t be considered trustworthy if they were drinking. Benson, with whom Dawkins had signed the anti-harassment letter just weeks earlier, was not impressed. “I’m surprised and, frankly, shocked by Richard’s belligerent remarks about feminist bloggers over the past couple of days,” she told me. “Part of what made The God Delusion so popular was, surely, its indignant bluntness about religion. It was a best-seller; does that mean he ‘faked’ his outrage?” There’s no denying that Dawkins played a formative role in the atheist movement, but it’s grown beyond just him. Remarks like these make him a liability at best, a punchline at worst. He may have convinced himself that he’s the Most Rational Man Alive, but if his goal is to persuade everyone else that atheism is a welcoming and attractive option, Richard Dawkins is doing a terrible job. Blogger and author Greta Christina told me, “I can’t tell you how many women, people of color, other marginalized people I’ve talked with who’ve told me, ‘I’m an atheist, but I don’t want anything to do with organized atheism if these guys are the leaders.’”

Fox News host Dana Perino this week suggested that atheists should leave the country instead of trying to maintain the separation of church and state. In a case before the Massachusetts Supreme Court, atheist lawyer David Niose argued that the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance violates the Equal Rights Amendment of the state’s constitution. “I’m tired of them,” Perino complained on Wedneday. “I remember working at the Justice Department years ago when I first started right after 9/11 and a lawsuit like this came through, and before the day had finished, the United States Senate and the House of Representatives had both passed resolutions saying that they were for keeping ‘under God’ in the pledge.” “If these people really don’t like it, they don’t have to live here,” she added. “Yeah, that’s a good point,” co-host Bob Beckel agreed. “If you don’t believe then why do you care?” Perino wondered. “It’s just like some guy’s name.” Watch this video from Fox News’ The Five, broadcast Sept. 4, 2013.
I've done three sessions now with my boyfriend of 4 years. I'm 30, he's 33. I'm doing well at work and just generally. He's in a rut. He suggested therapy. The therapist has asked me maybe two direct questions over the course of those three sessions, but has really been pressing my boyfriend. The revelations are mundane enough, but extremely depressing: He has never been able to maintain sexual interest in someone through the course of a relationship. Which would be one thing, except the longest he's ever been with anyone continuously until we got together was five months. Until now, he's never kept a job longer than a year (he's at 18 months and is already looking for something else). He doesn't want to feel pressure. Too much support feels like pressure. Not enough support and he doesn't feel understood. Doesn't every want to have to explain himself or his needs because that feels disappointing. No thanks. Already I'd pay $200 an hour not to have to hear this shit.
We all grow up knowing about Presidents, peacemakers, Academy Award Winners, Nobel Prize winners, famous authors, sports heroes, multi-zillionaires, etc., and we all aspired to be among them some day. There comes a time in life when we realize that we're not going to be among the greats. When I turned 40, I accepted it. When did you figure it out?

For years The Talk has been within striking distance of dethroning The View as the number 1 female panel show. After four years of hard work The Talk has finally BEATEN The View According to Nielsen live plus same day ratings, the CBS talker topped “The View” in women 25-54 by +10% (1.1/07 vs. 1.0/07) and by +14% in women 18-49 (0.8/05 vs. 0.7/05) for the week ending Friday, July 11. What can The View do to turn this sinking ship around?
Idiot rancher wanted his cattle to graze freely on federal land, and he threw a tea-tantrum to make it happen. Now a driver was severely injured plowing into one of his cows that was in the middle of a federal highway. [quote]Bundy had not been served with notice of the lawsuit Wednesday, but he was familiar with the accident. He said it was his cow that was hit, but he denied any responsibility. He said it is the state’s job to maintain the fence that keeps his livestock off the interstate. “It’s a state problem. It’s not our problem,” Bundy said. “We really feel bad when it happens. We sure don’t want it to happen. But we’re not liable.” And he might sue the driver for hitting the cow: [quote]Bundy said Wednesday that technically he is within his rights to make a claim of his own against Beck. “The person whose car hit that cow is liable to me,” he said.
Bellagio in Vegas is supposedly the top-rated hotel/casino for customer service. What would you do if the following happened to you? Attending an event at Bellagio hotel/casino, I needed to use the Women's Restroom. In the middle of using the toilet, I saw a huge flood of DARK BROWN FECES flooding my stall from the one next to it. My brand new Satin high heels and large cloth bag were immediately covered in the filthy poop. I finished as quickly as possible and went to the bathroom sink. The smell was horrific. I told the housekeeper what had happened. She yelled at me in front of the other patrons that I should have inspected the stall before using it. She didn't care that the flood of shit happened after I was using the toilet. She ignored my request for help in cleaning my shoes and cloth bag. I had to stand in my stocking feet on the restroom floor, and clean someone else's feces off of my things. I had no choice but to wear the shoes out of the restroom, and carry the cloth bag. I then called for a shift manager. After a long wait, he finally showed up. His response? He didn't see the incident so there was nothing that he could do to help me. I would be happy to take a lie detector test to prove that what I'm saying is 100% true and accurate.
I'm so worried.

One shouted about God’s love as he crossed the frozen river, clutching a Bible. Another swam, drunk and naked. Several US soldiers dashed around land mines. Time and again, Americans over the years have slipped illegally into poor, deeply suspicious, fervently anti-American North Korea, even as it has become increasingly easy to enter legally as a tourist. To many, the dangerous passage is incomprehensible, especially since tens of thousands of desperate North Koreans have crossed in the opposite direction, at great risk. The latest incident came on Tuesday night, when a US citizen apparently tried to swim across a river separating the Koreas, eager to meet the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, local media reported. And on Sunday, Matthew Miller, 24, of Bakersfield, California, who entered legally but then tore up his visa was sentenced to six years of hard labour on charges he illegally entered the country to commit espionage. Sneaking into autocratic, cloistered North Korea has proven a strange and powerful temptation for some Americans. Sometimes the spur is religious conviction. Sometimes it is discontent with America and a belief things will be different in a country that can seem like its polar opposite. Quite often, analysts say, it’s mental or personal problems.

Okay, now I'm going to say it: Are we sure Obama is American? This spits right in the face of our heritage. Is Obama the latest victim of Twitter? ... President Barack Obama reiterated his stance against Scottish independence with a tweet on Wednesday. Obama said he hopes the UK remains "strong, robust and united." The Scottish independence vote takes place Thursday, Sept. 18. The White House ✔ @WhiteHouse The UK is an extraordinary partner for America and a force for good in an unstable world. I hope it remains strong, robust and united. -bo Obama first commented on the vote in June. "We obviously have a deep interest in making sure that one of the closest allies that we will ever have remains strong, robust, united, and an effective partner," Obama told reporters after the G7 summit. "But ultimately these are decisions that are to be made by the folks there." Earlier this week, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the vote is a "decision for the people of Scotland to make," but echoed Obama's comments. "I will certainly respect their right to cast their own ballot without interference from people on the outside," Earnest said. "But, you know, as the president himself said, we have an interest in seeing the United Kingdom remain strong, robust, united and an effective partner." Former President Bill Clinton has also spoken out against Scottish independence, saying he hopes "the Scots will inspire the world with a high turnout and a powerful message of both identity and inclusion."

Ooooh! Gossip like this gives me tingles! "TRUST ME you don’t want JEFFREY DONOVAN. I worked with this PR-IC-K on Burn Notice this man had the whole set TERRORIZED. Picture your worst stereotypical diva and multiply it by like a GAZILLION and you’ve got Jeffrey. In fact, his behavior is so LEGENDARILY ATROCIOUS that I was in Miami eating at Johnny Rocket and one of the girls behind the counter recognized me from other work and asked what I was in town filming and I told her Burn Notice. She said, “Oh that’s with that guy who’s like a complete a-hole right?’ A waitress. “Nuff Said. I was on MIAMI VICE by the way as a youngster, I played a character called Archie a young inner city track and football star who saved the lives of Crockett and Tubbs. I’m sure you know that Don Johnson had a legendary “people problem” right? Well, in Don’s case I didn’t find it to be entirely true, he’s a perfectionist and if you showed similar commitment to the work, you were in his good graces. Jeffrey Donovan would SCARE THE SHYTE out of D.J. I was also a character on CHARMED over a couple of seasons and I’m sure you know about Shannon Doherty’s legendary temper. She’s gave me nothing but love ( not like that) and we’re friends to this day. Jeffrey Donovan would SCARE THE WITCH out of Shannon Dougherty. I don’t like talking badly about someone but this man is the most appalling CRETIN I have ever worked with in a THIRTY YEAR CAREER, I’ve been in movies with Actors that wouldn’t let the Crew LOOK AT THEM and would only allow a crew member to speak to them IF THEY SPOKE FIRST ( Bobby D.) but again, he gave me nothing but love. Jeffrey Donovan would scare the beejeebers out of Robert Deniro."
What a fucked up movie. I'm surprised it was even able to get made. It's that disturbing. Regardless of its supernatural nature, the murders were incredibly graphic and believable. Did anyone see this movie? I'm a big horror movie buff, and I haven't been into an American horror film in at least a decade, if not longer. I can't believe the film was only made for $3 million.
This was a request made, so there you go. What music of the 80's didn't suck? Please provide a short or long explanation for your choices. My choices are: -X, Los Angeles and Wild Gift: the latter cd is so much better than all the other punk cds out there, not that there isn't plenty of competition -Dead Kennedy's: underrated group, they sang the best version of I Fought the Law -Yaz: more capable of emotion than early depeche mode -Depeche mode: some of their songs are still very good -New Order: a new wave band you can take as seriously as some of the great punk bands) -early U2: Bono wasn't totally full of himself and his strident attitude was refreshing, especially on songs like New Years Day -Siouxsie and the Banshees: great cover of Dear Prudence and other great songs like Spellbound and Arabian Knights -Slick Rick: you gotta love those sing-song rhymes -Husker Du: a huge nirvana influence, but I like their music even more so. It has a rough-around-the-edges quality that I really like. For ballads, I will take the Replacements, but when that doesn't happen (and that's most of the time), I like Husker Du better. Also, I only found out Grant and bob were gay later, but it makes me appreciate their music more. -Bad Brains: I have a huge issue with their homophobia, but the impact of their music cannot be denied. They sang both hardcore punk and reggae and I cannot think of any 80's band that could play faster or harder than they could. -Jesus and Mary Chain: I still love the sound of Psychocandy even if I haven't listened to it like I did in college. It manages to be as catchy as 60's pop and more aggressive than the Ramones.

His majesty King George III reiterated his stance against American colonial independence with a tweet on Wednesday. Obama said he hopes the 13 colonies remain "strong, robust and united." A group of 56 colonists signed a Thomas Jefferson-penned "Declaration of Independence," accusing His Majesty of numerous crimes against the colonies as justification for the current battle for independence. The Royal Family ✔ @GBRoyalFamily Great Britain is an extraordinary partner for the colonies and a force for good in an unstable world. I hope it remains strong, robust and united. - HRH His Majesty first commented on the declaration in July. "Those ungrateful bastards just want representation," His Majesty told reporters after a visit to one of his doctors. "But ultimately these are decisions that are to be made by the crown." Earlier this week, Prime Minister North said the vote is a "decision for the people of the American Colonies to make," but echoed His Majesty's comments. "I will certainly respect their right to cast their own ballot without interference from people on the outside," North said. "But, you know, as His Majesty himself said, we have an interest in seeing Great Britain remain strong, robust, united and an effective partner." Former PM William Pitt the Elder has also spoken out against American independence, saying he hopes "the Americans will realize they're better off under the British Crown, and just because they face taxation doesn't entitle them to representation."
Rachel is the manager and the owner is Gunther at a Central Perk cafe in Beijing which is the exact replica of the one in Friends, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the first episode The cast of Friends may be feeling their age ahead of the 20th anniversary of their first airing on September 22, 1994. But a growing league of dedicated Chinese fans, many younger than the programme itself, are testament to its lasting and very global charm. Hidden on the 6th floor of a Beijing shopping complex is a detailed replica of the Central Perk coffee shop, where staff and customers while away hours watching series back-to-back and sipping coffee on that sofa. The cafe manager Xue Huahua, who chose the Western name Rachel, was born in the same year as the show's first episode. "In the last two years we've noticed that more and more young people like Friends," she said.

He is friends with Jeff because Jeff is Harry's agent, he is supposed to introduce him to a lot of important people in LA. Harry wants to be known as a songwriter, he wants to become 'friends' with people who can help him become famous as an individual when the time is there. You can keep calling Jeff his boyfriend, but that doesn't make it the truth. The only truth is that Harry is a smart ass who knows exactly how to charm the right people into doing a lot for him. Even if those people have their own agenda as well. Harry has talked his way right into the Azoff family. What more does he need? Well, maybe a secret girl- or boyfriend who loves him for who he is, and not for how famous he is. Someone who doesn't care about him being in LA all the time. So this person must have the possibility to see him, even though he is always staying at different places around the world. Someone whom he wants to stay faithful to, even though he knows that he could sleep with a lot of beautiful people. But why would a guy his age want to do that? Does that mean that his love interest is famous as well, and that he/she can pull the same card? Open your eyes, there is only one person who would fit in his life right now. He has never made a secret of his feelings.

And guess who he'll be playing?
Ben Whishaw has been cast in the lead role of forthcoming BBC thriller London Spy. The 33-year-old British actor, who played Q in Skyfall, is to take on the role of Danny in Tom Rob Smith’s first television drama series. Danny is an outgoing and pleasure-seeking romantic who becomes embroiled in the world of British espionage, after falling for the enigmatic Alex. But when Alex disappears, Danny must decide whether he is prepared to find out what has happened to him. Tom Rob Smith said: “Ben Whishaw is quite simply one of the best actors in the country. It's an extraordinary privilege, as a writer, to have him play the lead.” BBC two controller Janice Hadlow, who commissioned the series, added: “Drama on BBC Two has seen an incredible resurgence and I'm thrilled to be welcoming this gripping new series to the channel, written by an exciting talent.“ Filming for the five-part series is to commence next month – and additional casting is to be announced soon. Whishaw’s past credits include Hamlet, Brideshead Revisited and Cloud Atlas. He is also set to take on the role of Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic about the Queen frontman’s life and is due to reprise his role as Q in Bond 24 in 2015. He will also star as Herman Melville in The Heart of the Sea, a Warner Bros film about the whale attack that spawned Moby Dick.

The Archbishop of Canterbury has admitted to feeling doubts over the existence of God. In a recent interview at Bristol Cathedral, Archbishop Justin Welby said on a recent morning run with his dog he had questioned why God had failed to intervene to prevent injustice. “The other day I was praying over something as I was running and I ended up saying to God ‘Look this is all very well but isn’t it about time you did something – if you’re there.’” Earlier in the interview, when asked if he had moments of doubt, Archbishop Welby replied: “Yes. I do, in lots of different ways.” “There are moments, sure, when you think is there a God, where is God?” In the mostly light-hearted interview, the Archbishop later conceded later his views as the leader of the Church of England are “probably not what the Archbishop of Canterbury should say.” Citing his love for the Psalms, especially Psalm 88, which is “full of doubt” Archbishop Welby defended his comments about faith, saying: “It is not about feelings, it is about the fact that God is faithful and the extraordinary thing about being a Christian is that God is faithful when we are not.” One in four people in Britain regards themselves as belonging to the Church of England. 1.7 million people take part in a church service every month, according to statistics from the Church of England.
As the chaining of America continues a lot of interesting restaurants get lost in the mix. This article got me thinking (yes it's Huffpo, sorry those bitter betty's who disdain it).

How Social Media Improved Writing. According to this guy, anyway. [quote]This is a very modern phenomenon: writing that reads like conversation. Day by day, prose is becoming blessedly more like speech. Social media, blogs and emails have hugely improved the way we write. [quote]Before the internet, only professional writers wrote. I remember the term at school when we were taught to write essays. Most of my classmates just endured it. They’d never written down their extended thoughts before, and were confident they’d never need do it again.
It was a mass-produced painting of a little boy with tears streaming down his face. At some point in the 80s the urban myth grew that mysterious fires broke out in houses that contained a copy. Supposedly when the smoke cleared it was discovered that the only thing undamaged in the home was the painting. Who had one? Did any weird shit happen that you attribute to it?

She was 25 years old.\ \ According to the Associated Press, Blasberg''s agent would not divulge details about the cause of the golfer''s death, and it is unclear whether foul play was a factor. Henderson police are currently investigating.\ \ Golfweek reports that Blasberg won six tournaments in two years while in college at the University of Arizona, where she won Pac-10 Player of the Year. The publication named her Player of the Year in 2003.\ \ In a statement, Blasberg''s agent said, "We are devastated to learn of the passing of Erica Blasberg. To most of the world, Erica was known as a professional golfer, but she was more than that. She was a loving daughter to her parents and a compassionate and loyal friend. Erica had a good heart, was extremely kind and very thankful for what she had in her life."
I always have, since I was a kid. Loved when the daytime talk shows like "Donahue" and "Geraldo" would have them on. Loved when the "exercise" magazines featured male dance troupes. I almost like men wearing almost nothing than nothing at all. I love finding converted to DVD old stripper videos. Yeah, the mes are greasy and long-haired (80s) and often straight (though I don't always believe that every troupe is sooo straight and there are no gay men. Come on.) Weirdly, nowadays it seems like more and more male dancers have their dancers just in small posing straps with a full back. Makes no difference as it's still hot but anybody know why this is?

Why would he have cancer in his fat?

How do you console those close to you when they are grieving? I personally believe that when you die, you die. Game over. No heaven. No hell. No reincarnation. You cease to exist. I find a certain peace and comfort in that, but understand that most people find that horrifying. My mother's brother just died two days ago, and I want to be there for her. But she is deeply religious, and now is not the time for philosophical debates on my lack of belief in God or an afterlife. Now it is just time to be there for my mom. But I also don't want to sit and spout about "seeing him again some day" when I don't actually believe that. Grrr. Suggestions?
I haven't heard much about this, but it sounds interesting. It's about the gays who supported the coalminers' strike in the UK in the '80s. Anyone seen it or know anything about it? For our UK brethren-- was this story well-known at the time, or is it just being brought to light now?

He was with his sister or girl friend. He's a mtof transter. He was quite tall for female and in a halter top with heavy necklace. Quite amusingly sweet. I tried not to stare, but he really looked like a guy in girl summer clothes. He seemed to have real female breasts but the voice was a dead giveaway. Gawd, I'm really grateful that I don't have any delusions of being a female.

I was after this guy I thought was hot, but he was playing hard to get. So one day I bluntly said, "I want your cock so bad." To him. He replied, "Why do you want to suck my dick so bad? What is your need? You do it and what then?" I was taken aback. For once I wondered what compels me to want to do this thing to him. What makes me want to perform oral sex on men? Certainly to pleasure them and make them orgasm. That's the objective, but WHY? So I get him off. Once I've sucked it, what then?

Debutants would give up the social whirl, To be a funny, funny girl.

Okay, the show needs overhauling. I've been reading a lot of viewer reactions, and what they want to see for the new season. The biggest: they want Jonathan Groff and his character taking a back seat. They want Russell Tovey's character to become the main focus. Groff is taking a hit for making his character even more unlikable than he's already written.

We all agree that the Catholic leadership is wrong and hateful in its treatment of gay people, and the overgrown Catholic school bullies involved in the attack are monstrous creeps of the highest order. However, some of you can't quite read past the word "Catholic" without conflating every person who's ever been sprinkled with holy water by a closeted gay man in a dress with bible-thumping Christofascists who live every single moment in mindless service to the Pope and his united army of followers. This is the thread for you guys. Have at it, and please stop derailing the serious threads that are for disseminating factual information and details on the investigation into a shocking attack on two gay men in a large, liberal city. You can post all you want about how Catholic schools are indoctrination centers where gay-bashing is taught along side bible study (as if!) and abortion-clinic-bombing 101. TIA.

Ready to be poisoned: Seven decades after Margot Wölk was forced into life at Hitler’s bunker, she has told her full story Every meal could have been her last. And when she had finished eating the bland vegetarian dishes put before her, 25-year-old Margot Wölk and her young female colleagues would burst into tears and “cry like dogs” because they were grateful still to be alive. Margot Wölk was no Nazi, but she was one of 15 young women who were employed at Adolf Hitler’s heavily guarded Prussian “Wolf’s Lair” headquarters during the Second World War. Her job was to taste the Nazi leader’s food before it reached his lips, to make sure it wasn’t poisoned. She was the only one to survive. All her colleagues were rounded up and shot by the advancing Red Army in January 1945. Now a frail 96-year-old widow, Margot Wölk has overcome feelings of shame and broken decades of silence about her time as Hitler’s food taster to tell her story to German television. “The food was always vegetarian,” she told Berlin’s RBB television channel, for a programme about her harrowing and sometimes horrific experiences, which was aired on Tuesday. “There were constant rumours that the British were out to poison Hitler. He never ate meat. We were given rice, noodles, peppers, peas and cauliflower,” she recalled. But she added: “Some of the girls started to shed tears as they began eating because they were so afraid. We had to eat it all up. Then we had to wait an hour, and every time we were frightened that we were going to be ill. We used to cry like dogs because we were so glad to have survived.”

What will be uncovered?
I was supposed to have intestinal surgery a couple of weeks ago, but my pre-op urine test showed an infection. The dr didn't tell me which bacteria it was. I took Cipro. The repeat urine was a culture and it was positive for E. coli. UTIs that are resistant to Cipro are strains of E. coli ST131. I'm on Macrodantin now. If this doesn't take care of the UTI, I don't know if they will operate on me because ST131 can cause sepsis. My surgery is seen as an elective procedure. My surgeon stressed this twice when he explained the surgery to me. It's a colostomy reversal. When I was in the hospital for an intestinal perforation, they put a Foley catheter in me and had difficulty putting it in. The nurse had to try a few times. I wonder if I picked up the UTI in the hospital. They never tested my urine in the hospital. I'm not really sick or anything. I just feel really tired. I'm afraid that I might not be able to get my intestines put back together again. :-(
Since the other threads are closed, here's a new one!
When I first watched it last year, I thoroughly enjoyed it for the camp ("I look like my father in 'Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte!'" and Rob Lowe performance). I laughed throughout and enjoyed Michael Douglas as Liberace. However, watching it again tonight, I am struck by how Matt Damon doesn't seem right for his part. He has bits of great acting, but he doesn't seem to fill his role. Douglas [italic]was[/italic] Liberace, but after a year of not watching it, Damon does not seem to inhabit the role of a boy toy. It is not just the age difference between Damon and Scott's age at the time he was with Liberace. Rather, it seems as if he was playing a different role (sweet and naive, then corrupted) who happens to be in the body of a boy toy rather than an already dissolute young man who used Liberace as much as Liberace used him. Damon doesn't seem to do that. Sure, the character as portrayed makes for a better story (fall and some redemption at the end) but it strikes one as false.

And will "try" not to leave marks on her. What a loving, thoughtful father/fucker he is! I'm sure the Kimmy K, c-worded queen is thanking her lucky stars! In trying to defend Adrian Peterson, Reggie Bush outs himself as an actual, de facto NFL, cunty, child-beating felon! How often do NFL players actually talk about themselves as if the lesser of two evils is actually comes true? [quote]'I have a one-year-old daughter, and I discipline her,' he said during the interview. 'I definitely will try to — will obviously not leave bruises or anything like that on her. But I definitely will discipline her harshly depending on what the situation is.' In other words, you'll be sure not to leave marks depending on law enforcement pursuits, right? [quote]Reggie Bush is the latest athlete to come to the defense of Adrian Peterson in the wake of his indictment on child abuse charges last week, saying he will discipline his own daughter in the same manner Peterson disciplined his son. [quote]Appearing today on the Boomer & Carton show, the 29-year-old Detroit Lions running back said Peterson should never have been suspended from league play after getting in trouble for beating his son with a switch. [quote]He then defended similar treatment for his ONE YEAR OLD INFANT: [quote]He then added that if his daughter behaved inappropriately, she too would receive a punishment similar to the one Peterson gave his son. [quote]Too much?: Bush said he would be sure not to hit his daughter Briseis (left with mother Lilit Avagyan, right with Bush) so hard that she was left bruised like Peterson's son Bush's daughter Briseis is just one-year-old. [quote]'I have a one-year-old daughter, and I discipline her,' he said during the interview. 'I definitely will try to — will obviously not leave bruises or anything like that on her. But I definitely will discipline her harshly depending on what the situation is.' [quote]According to CBS 2 New York, Bush, who used to date Kim Kardashian, was then asked if he would ever hit his daughter with a switch, to which he responded, 'I would possibly consider it, depending on what she did.' [quote]Bush chalked up his opinion on the subject to the fact that he was disciplined in the same way as Peterson's son when he was younger. [quote]This weekend, former NBA star Charles Barkley also defended Peterson, saying the type of punishment the NFL star doled out is common among 'black parents in the South.' [quote]It's so good that he will try to disguise the abuse such a big man as he shovels harsh and in his mind, hopefully unforgettable abuse, upon a poor ONE year old. Please tell me how the black community is trying to explain this shit away?! [quote]Barkley: Every black parent in the south whips their kids [quote]One person who is not coming to Peterson's defense however, is Minnesota Vikings Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton, who said earlier today he is 'embarrassed' by his former team's decision to allow Peterson back on the field this weekend. [quote]'These are serious accusations,' he told Fox News. 'And the only way you’re going to get the attention of an NFL player is to take away his paycheck and take him off the field. This is way above winning or losing a football game. I strongly disagree with the notion of playing him this week.' [quote]Former Viking Cris Carter also said that he felt Peterson should not be playing when he appeared on NFL Sunday this weekend. [quote]This all stems from an incident last May when Peterson hit his four-year-old son so hard the child was left with bruises and open wounds. Peterson faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if found guilty.
Stay classy, Missouri!
I had a couple of odd experiences this past week when I drank tea (PG Tipps) in the morning. Last Wednesday, I brewed a cup and rignt after drinking it a nausea welled up in my stomach. It happened so quickly that I still had the cup in my hand when I threw up. I thought that I might have made it too stout or drank it too fast. This morning I had another cup (first one since) and was careful not to let the bag steep too much and drank it slowly. I had the same reaction. From beginning to end it was less than two minutes. I normally don't drink much caffeine, but beyond getting a bit agitated, I've never had reactions to it even when I drank coffee on a regular basis. I've had the box for about seven or eight months and it's about half full. Strange...

When I was younger I definitely believed and have heard personal tales from people who claimed to have seen one. However, as an adult I tend to think they didn't exist. Now I'm not sure. My own personal theory is that perhaps Bigfoot is nothing more than feral humans. If a breeding population of feral humans existed in N.America then they would quickly adapt to the cold winters via natural selection. This would mean that those offspring that were hairy would survive and spread their genes. We also know that another adaptation to cold climates is to grow larger. That's why most of the animals of the ice ages were so big because large animals lose heat slower than smaller animals. Therefore it is possible that a breeding population of feral humans could become hairier and larger than non-feral humans within just a few generations. If the initial breeding pairs of feral humans were literally feral from an early age they would not have developed socially and would be incapable of passing socialization skills onto their offspring. They would be illiterate and may never develop the need to even make tools, other than rocks and sticks that can be easily found in nature. What says you? Of course I think it's also possible that Bigfoot is purely mythical.

I am the lump in Jennifer Marlowe's left breast, which she discovered two weeks ago.
Because the other inexplicably "does not exist" anymore. Fucking Granny G! I know it was you, you rancid old twat!
Not that it is a surprise but Bennett has avoided ever publicly mentioning he is gay and she just blurted it out on national TV. Hell, maybe more people should start doing this to obvious closet cases. Colton Haynes your next?
Urban Outfitters has stooped to a new low in their attempt to appeal to kitschy tongue in cheek hipsters and frat boys who let their shirts do their talking because they were born without personalities. They recently offered up a Kent State sweatshirt which looks like blood is spattered all over it. You don’t have to run a CSNY fan page on Facebook to get the reference. This keeps with Urban Outfitter’s tradition of offering up shitty puns and juxtapositions on their clothing. It’s one thing to sell a five dollar T shirt for thirty bucks because it says “Suck My Footlong” with a picture of a sandwich. It’s another to intertwine your bullshit company with one of America’s national tragedies. Kent State was not amused: “This item is beyond poor taste and trivializes a loss of life that still hurts the Kent State community today.” To be fair, Kent State could actually do something important so maybe people can get over the dead students from forty-five years ago. Maybe they can buy one of those God particle laboratories and accidentally blow up the universe or something. Urban Outfitters was quick to respond to the outrage, or not so quick if you consider they had a pre-prepared statement in the hip pocket and all they had to do was unfold it: “Urban Outfitters sincerely apologizes for any offense our Vintage Kent State Sweatshirt may have caused. It was never our intention to allude to the tragic events that took place at Kent State in 1970 and we are extremely saddened that this item was perceived as such… There is no blood on this shirt nor has this item been altered in any way. The red stains are discoloration from the original shade of the shirt and the holes are from natural wear and fray.” That’s not really even a decent attempt at a lie. I hope someone pipe bombs Urban Outfitters corporate headquarters, takes a photo of the debris and rubble, and laminates it on a shirt that says “Urban Outfitters Is The Bomb”. It would be nice if nobody died during the bombing so I can live with myself. Charge one-hundred bucks for the shirt and hipsters will instinctively start forming a line.
You should know the rules by now. Only post one question. Include a story from your past that has an emotional impact on you.

The Oscar-nominated Irish actor, who is more at home in an action movie than a period drama, said he wouldn’t fit in among the aristocrats but might suit a role below stairs. “Maybe Dan (Stevens) could have a word with them. I must speak to him (about that),” he told London Live. “Maybe I could be a stableman or something. I definitely wouldn't cut the hierarchy, ya know?“ Fellow Hollywood actor George Clooney might also be someone to have a word with – the Academy Award-winner is to appear in a special charity episode of the ITV drama this Christmas.
The trailer is out! And it looks like Jimmy is finally getting some vagine. But still no phallic entertainment on the horizon for Thomas. Bloody bollocks! Even the poor sodomites need companionship in this post-War era! Isobel, could you ring us up some tea, dear?
Glitter stickers on her nipples, pills hot-glued to some cheap sunglasses and hair that hasn't been washed in two weeks. That's our Miley!
R60, (from the Clooney getting married thread) I'm on FB under my name. I've just arranged for professional pics; what's there now is another amateur shot. I'm also on Gmail. Again, it's under my name (first&middle.) I'm calling your bluff. I'm in discussion for a few new "faux" reality series, and just left one because of the pay. I've also responded to another local comedy performance opportunity. I am NOT looking to be a star, as I'm a comedy/character actress. Right, the ditzy blond that everyone else teases. At least I'm told that I have "excellent, excellent sense of timing." We know casting isn't based on talent or even looks. Since I'm not bi or a super slut, I never expected to have a major career. Too bad I'm not related to Hal Kanter, as everyone asks. Whoever he was. I hinted at what Mr. Clooney promised to help me reveal, on last night's free question to a psychic thread. It would have been polite if he had told me to look elsewhere for representation, after I was told not to sign with a different manager. Obviously I must have totally misjudged his character and level of honesty. I've now moved on. There are those on DL that will always insult evryone else. I accept that fact.
Twin 21-year-old brothers recorded the moment they both came out as gay to their parents. Here's the surprising conversation that followed:
What is wrong with these assholes and their fetish for cutting peoples heads off?
Growing up my family always yelled at me when I complained that cornbread needs to have some sugar in it. They would all seemingly unanimously scream, "It's cornbread not cake!" I'm sorry, but if you don't put sugar in cornbread it's going to turn out dry and tasteless.
And that's final!
WTF is it with people responding to my ads asking if I'm willing to trade? Is Craigslist a bartering website or some shit & I just didn't know about it? The only thing I'm willing to trade my shit for is DOLLAR BILLS. Sick of it!
NO, this is not a hate racist question. I just want to know why they ALL pick and choose black men. It's rather odd, don't you think? Is there some sort of racial undertone going on with them?
Having a dinner party for 12 in a week and not sure what to make. I'm a passable cook and I'd like to not use the oven since it will be hot in my apartment already. Thoughts?

Croc say: รสชาติเหมือนไก่! [quote]An elderly woman committed suicide by jumping into a pond full of crocodiles, it has been reported. Wanpen Inyai, 65, was torn apart after apparently throwing herself into a pit with more than 1,000 crocodiles at a zoo in Bangkok, Thailand. [quote]A disturbing picture was posted online reportedly showing a crocodile approaching her moments before she was attacked. [quote]Police said they arrived at the scene to find zoo keepers and staff desperately trying to ward off dozens of reptiles which were feasting on her body. [quote]Her sister Sunan Tharmna said Wanpen was depressed and had not spoken to anyone for several days before her death on Friday. [quote]Her family tried to file a missing person's report that day, but were told to wait 24 hours by Rom Klao police as required by law. [quote]CCTV footage reportedly shows her leaving her shoes on a walkway before jumping into the pit at the Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm & Zoo, it was reported by the Bangkok Post. [quote]Officers said they were able to identify after finding her healthcare card floating on the surface of the water. This was later confirmed by DNA tests. [quote]Farm owner Uthen Youngprapakorn said staff had already installed extra fences and security measures along the walkway which the woman jumped from. [quote]He described her death as a 'force majeure' and expressed condolences to her family. [quote]Founded in 1950, Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm & Zoo describes itself as the world's largest crocodile farm.

Watched this again on GetTV the other night and I was really impressed! Funny how by today's reality Lynn R. would hardly be considered the unkempt, monstrous hippo the way she is intended in the movie. All the cast is first-rate (esp. sexy Alan Bates) but I gotta say Charlotte Rampling almost blows the whole movie over as the coldest, meanest bitch ever! I can't imagine that character in a film made today. Swinging Sixties cinema rocks!
What happens when you try to live in Ayn Rand’s libertarian Galt’s Gulch fantasy from ‘Atlas Shrugged?’ Exactly what you’d think would happen. You know why nobody’s ever tried to build a real-life Rivendell, and start a community there? Like, with elves, magic and living inside giant trees and all? Because, as awesome as that would be, the book in which Rivendell exists, and can only exist, is a fantasy. It’s a self-contained world, where things function perfectly well within the rules and bounds of that world. But the rules of Middle Earth aren’t the same as those of ours, which is what makes it “fantasy.” [bold]What is “Galt’s Gulch,” exactly?[/bold] The premise of Ayn Rand’s bloated sack of crap…err, novel…is that the Captains of Industry, the “Motors of the World,” decide to “go on strike” in a mysterious mountain retreat called Galt’s Gulch. Created by the equally mysterious John Galt…the man behind the 40-page monologue near the end. Without its “best and brightest,” the world devolves into a socialist, collectivist Hellscape run by mobs of takers and moochers, and only returns to civility when the Greedy, Good and Great of Galt’s Gulch return like gold-dipped Messiahs to save the world. The novel ends with a predictably subtle, deep and beautiful metaphor…the protagonist literally drawing dollar signs in the sky. Pretty sweet fantasy, right? Greed, fraud and “rational self-interest” save the day. As always. Sounds like a thing that would work in the real world. Ayn Rand’s Douchebag Utopia has, after all, been as close to a Neoconservative Bible as exists, championed by none other than those great thinkers Paul Ryan, Ron Paul and his kid (who totally wasn’t named for Ayn Rand.) Yeah, except…funny thing happened on the way to utopia. It turned out to be a scam. (read more at the link)
Anyone care to admit to this? Enough with the PC "versatile" bullshit!
Did anyone watch it? What did you think of the episode? What did you think of Peter Capaldi as the new doctor?
Dementia? Heart? Back problems? What is it and is she really in bad shape?
Yeah, she's a woman. I wonder how much he paid her. He said you can't imagine the terror he lived in....he hired bodyguards. What extra duty did they have to pull?
Please keep it real, and NO dissing other posters. That is all. Thank you.
It's like the other thread, minus the pointless, irrelevant and boring female celebrity gossip. I'll start: Christian Slater. His gay/bi side only ever comes out when he's completely sloshed or wasted, but when it does, he likes young brunettes that look almost identical to him in "The Name of the Rose." He kept leaving the biggest tips of life to my baby-faced friend who was a bartender at Los Globos in Silver Lake. He has not aged well.
Detroit is dying. Why not turn it into Hong Kong on the Great Lakes? End all state and federal taxes and regulations. Allow any company to relocate. Allow anyone to buy property with zero taxes for 20 years. Create a "FTZ" (free trade zone) where anything goes. If the US Government did this it would become the most prosperous city-state in a matter of months. Companies would beg to relocate. People would move in droves. So, why not allow them to be great?
Olive Garden's sales are down, and an activist investor in the restaurant believes the pasta is partly to blame. The Italian-restaurant chain supposedly breaks a basic rule of Italian cooking — salting the pasta water. "Shockingly, Olive Garden no longer salts the water it uses to boil the pasta, merely to get a longer warranty on its pots," Starboard writes in its 300-slide presentation. "This appalling decision shows just how little regard management has for delivering a quality experience to guests." We reached out to Olive Garden for comment but haven't heard back. The company's website confirms that the pasta contains a negligible amount of sodium until you add sauce or meat. This Starboard slide points out that "the first step of Pasta 101 is to salt the water." Competitors like Carrabbas add salt to the water, with better-tasting results, Starboard claims. According to Smithsonian Magazine, adding salt to the water gives the pasta a better flavor. "Do as Mario Batali does and salt the water until it 'tastes like the sea,'" the magazine instructs. Starboard believes that Olive Garden should focus on offering authentic Italian cuisine. The brand's new menu items this year have included Spanish tapas and a burger.
My good deed for this month . Thread by request so someone who won't pay $18 can talk about the bulge in a Dominican guy's speedo.
There is a local family owned pharmacy near here that advertises they don't have quotas like chain drug stores do. What does that mean? What kind of quotas?
My mechanic helped me out of a warranty jam on a car I bought and saved me hundreds. I want to give him a thank you gift, but not sure what. A bottle of booze maybe?
This is awesome. Plus, he goes after dirtbag Sean Hannity (who made a bizarre comment using homophobia to defend Adrian Peterson)

The Broadway actor and husband of Marin Mazzie just posted this on Facebook. Who is he talking about? "I had to unfriend someone on an "ethics" and "morals" charge who, at one time, I considered a friend. I cannot say who or why. I can say if you are a giant f'ing prick to someone you profess to love because you are basically "trading up" to another person, I hope they are prepared for you to f them too because who can trust an emotionally abusive mother like you? auf Wiedersehen, man."
I've been coming here for awhile, but rarely post, but need some advice.%0D %0D %0D A very good friend, who is gay, is getting married and asked me to be his best man. That's cool and I'm looking forward to it. I've been a best man before to straight guys and the job is pretty easy, throw a bachelor party, make sure he gets to the ceremony on time and give a toast. %0D %0D I'm concerned about the bachelor party part. Most straight guy bachelor parties that I've thrown or been invited to involved, at some point, strippers or whores. %0D %0D All of my friend's friends are straight guys, but he's gay. If I'm going to get whores for his party, it would be rude to get female whores, right? But, to get guy whores for a bachelor party, where 90% of the guys are straight, would be kind of awkward, right? %0D %0D What's the best thing to do? I want to do an all day thing like I've done with other bachelor parties. Golf, poker, whores, then go out to a club. %0D %0D What should I do? %0D %0D %0D Oh, and since I know you guys have to haze me. Yes I'm straight. I'm 27 and engaged. My dick is 6 inches and cut. I'm a moderate democrat. The only time I engaged in gay sex was when I was 6 and my friend and I touched our dicks together. No, I will not post a picture. I can't think of anything else.%0D %0D Thanks in advance for your help with this.

What are your thoughts on him?
Pharrell Williams has again reiterated his belief that the controversy surrounding “Blurred Lines” was overblown. Speaking about last year’s collaborative track with Robin Thicke, the “Happy” singer dismissed denigration of the song, which was widely criticised for objectifying women and trivialising sexual violence. “I’m not surprised because it’s the way that media works,” he told Stylist. “My point to you is, anything can be taken out of context and even though there were models that were topless and there… I’m sorry, read the lyrics… I’m talking about the portion that I wrote, I’m not talking about TI’s rap.” That would be the rap including the lyrics "Nothing like your last guy, he too square for you/ He don't smack that ass and pull your hair like that". But Pharrell, 41, said he didn’t regret his involvement: “If you know anything about me, and my career, you know how I love women, and the last thing I want to do is degrade.”
Most gay porn is so vanilla. Lousy camera angles, boring models, no sensuality. The worst is when it's 20 minutes of passionless banging and asshole closeups. Oral cumshots are extremely rare. Straight porn actually shows of the girls, and the girls act just so much more into it.
These guys really think they are straight?!
Who likes the slightly saggy look of a hot daddy ass? Let's post pics!
They said it wouldn't last. Bitches, we had to prove them wrong!
Do they only hire white people under 25? Seriously. Wondering if the company owners are racist and ageist.
In person, or on the Internet? The ones that are aggressive? Delusional? Don't seem to have a clear understanding that the character/couple that they love is fictional and part of a book/film/television programme?
It has to be said.
I forgot for a moment that she's no longer with us. It truly is a magical, iconic song. It's up there with the classics by Dusty and Judy. I believe that Whitney could've made a comeback with the right material, even though her voice was perhaps not what it once was. Ella had some shining moments in her later years, even after her voice started to go. At first when I heard she had died, I couldn't believe it. Then I broke down in tears. I wept when Dusty and Ella died, too. I was a very young child when Judy left us, but I can remember going into my room and singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and the tears welled up in my eyes.
Hi. This weekend, Hallmark Channel begins its Countdown to Christmas. It runs all through November and December. I'm so excited.

[quote] Whenever there is a thread about families, I read some really heartbreaking stories here. There are also some people who are really struggling right now, and I always try to post something helpful or encouraging. So, serious questions here...Tell me about yourself. What does it mean to you to be gay? Have you personally suffered as a result, either from your family, school, job, or society in general? When did you realise you were gay? Would you change if you could? Are you happy in your life? As requested on the request thread.
Continuing a great thread with fabulous pecs.
The world is abuzz with news that actor Laverne Cox has become the first transgender person to appear on the cover of Time magazine. If I understand the current state of the ever-shifting ethic and rhetoric of transgenderism, that is not quite true: Bradley Manning, whom we are expected now to call Chelsea, beat Cox to the punch by some time. Manning’s announcement of his intention to begin living his life as a woman and to undergo so-called sex-reassignment surgery came after Time’s story, but, given that we are expected to defer to all subjective experience in the matter of gender identity, it could not possibly be the case that Manning is a transgendered person today but was not at the time of the Time cover simply because Time was unaware of the fact, unless the issuance of a press release is now a critical step in the evolutionary process. As I wrote at the time of the Manning announcement, Bradley Manning is not a woman. Neither is Laverne Cox.
Olympic diver Tom Daley has made his modelling debut for sportswear giant Adidas. The British diving champion has made a splash as a playful fashion model and launched a new teen clothing range with Adidas. The collection is a line of basics: including jeans, tees, socks and hoodies aimed at 14-19 year olds. As the UK ambassador of Adidas NEO label, the 20-year-old sportsman, who recently came out and is dating screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, posed wearing the latest autumn/winter collection in different iconic locations across the capital, including Westminster Bridge, the Houses of Parliament, Southbank and Shoreditch.
Do you have problems watching the viral videos of unfaked violence that have been circulating on the web- i.e. the ISIS beheadings? If so, where do you draw the line between what is acceptable to watch and what crosses the line? For myself (not a horror fan per se), I don't have any issues at all watching the goriest fictional violence, but the real stuff (even the Ray Rice punching video) would make me sad and disturbed.

Mary Ann and Ginger were also integral parts of a talent-packed cast where every character played a major role, even though they weren't originally supposed to be on the show. Neither woman was a character in the original "Gilligan's Island" pilot, which instead featured two secretaries, Ginger and Bunny (and a high-school teacher instead of the Professor). Video:

A Colombian women's cycling team said they would not stop wearing flesh-colored uniforms that earned them criticism from the International Cycling Union president. The cyclists gave a news conference in the capital Bogota wearing the uniforms which have a flesh-colored section between stomach and thighs. "I've already said that I designed the uniform and as an athlete, as a woman, as the cyclist that I am, I wouldn't be ashamed with this kind of design," said Angie Rojas, one of the team members. The president of the International Cycling Union (UCI), Brian Cookson, said the uniforms were "unacceptable by any standard of decency." The uniforms were worn by the IDRD-Bogota Humana-San Mateo-Solgar riders at the Tour of Tuscany in Italy over the weekend. Australian police make terror arrests 18 Sep 2014 They have led to online comments such as “Colombia's women's cycling jerseys are unintentionally vagina-like” and “Worst Uniform Ever!”. It is unclear if the six-woman team was intending to wear a similar uniform next week while representing Colombia at the road world championships in Ponferrada, Spain. Pictures of the team shared on social media prompted Cookson's response.
As Hollywood's biggest male movie stars start to slide towards retirement, who's ready to take their place? I'm not sure what happened between the high point of Brad Pitt and Clooney's fame and this Young Hollywood-ruled free-for-all. My favorite male stars are aging. And no one -- and I mean NO ONE -- is there to replace them.
Lingerie brand Tezenis has removed a piece of underwear from a range on sale in its British store after receiving a backlash of criticism over the phrase ‘crime scene’ printed across them. The latest clothing gaffe saw social media users deriding the apparent “rape” connotations over the phrase on the knickers, which were on display at the brand’s Oxford Street store in London. The knickers were initially spotted by Twitter user Rhiainj and posted by her friend Natasha O’Neill, who described them as “disgusting”, while another condemned them as “gross, sexist, and nasty”. Other users criticised what they described as the implication of sexual violence evident in the words crime scene, with one writing: “I think the implication is rape, isn’t it?”

I recently saw one of these statuettes at a garage sale and remembered how ubiquitous they were in the 70s. I hadn't thought about them in years and have no desire to ever see one again. No fond memories, no nostalgia. So even though we're glad they're gone, let's remind each other of things from the past most people have forgotten.

So, Neil Young has filed for divorce from his wife Pegi. They had been married for 36 years. She sang background for him and inspired some of his better-known love songs, such as "Unknown Legend." No reason was given for the divorce. Do any of you bitches know anything? Have there been rumors floating around about this? In all the comments I've seen, people express shock. Call me sentimental, but I'm always surprised and saddened when people who have been together for decades decide to call it quits. It happened to Al and Tipper Gore, to Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon, to Michael Moore and his wife, and now to Neil and Pegi Young. You'd think that if a marriage -- and especially a show biz marriage -- had weathered decades' worth of storms, it would be strong enough to withstand anything. But apparently not. Does anybody stay together any more?
I've never come across a human being without a single redeeming quality. Luka Magnotta is trash. Pure and simple. And he's really freakish looking. I think what he did to that international student was terrible. I'm glad he's locked up.

Now this was different. I really enjoyed it. There's a summary here in case you're curious. For those who have seen it (it's on Netflix, btw), would you agree that the storyline was different from most gay films out there? It really didn't go in the direction I thought it was going go. This was all due to seeing so many gay films, great ones, but not all with stories that were unpredictable. I labeled those films great based on direction, acting, and character creation. Not usually storyline as a whole. Anyway, feedback?
This man is HOT and has been in soooo many gay porn vids. But now he is married to an escort who is six months pregnant. And they're starring in a foot fetish porn vid, featuring the little porn prince. Ooooh or ewww? Oh well, at least they're keeping the family legacy going!
Different types of writers, but contemporaries in a sense (of the '60s, and endlessly morbid, female authors). Female literary titans in a man's world. Who would you rather read?
I feel like the 90's were rife with great indie films in the $5 million - $25 million range (roughly). Now, anything artistic is on TV. That's fine I guess, but I really miss going to see great indie dramas, horror, and comedies. I'm not really one to sit and watch a whole TV series at home. Is independent film dead? Do you think it'll make a comeback at some point?
Here we go -- again!

Janet Jackson's 4th studio album was released 24 years ago today. It would go on to become the biggest selling album of 1990, the first album to spawn 7 top 5 Hot 100 singles which included #1s in 3 separate calendar years, and it made Janet the artist with the most succuessful debut tour, a record she still holds. The album's topics of various societal ills such as bigotry, homelessness and violence against children are just as relevant today as they were when it was released, and the influence of its Broadway-esque, intricately-choreographed music videos still live in the works of the new crop of pop stars.

She''s stepping into "The Addams Family" later this month. But I don''t think there''s been a thread on her. She''s had one of the more interesting careers.%0D\ %0D\ But you have to admit that she improved acting wise as she got older. People who saw her in Chicago said she was magnificent.
Ten days ago I adopted a 14 year old cat that had been almost exclusively an outdoor dweller. The corner property and yard that she used to live at is being razed and developed into a McMansion (not joking) and she's also getting older so the owners thought living outside isn't such a good idea anymore. Thing is she's very tough to keep indoors. She's been with me for 10 days now. She's a super-sweet, agreeable cat (she got complimented for her attitude while getting chipped at the vet's), but it's obvious she wants out. She paces from window to window, meows while sitting at them, and bolts to the doors if someone is near them. She's escaped twice and it hasn't been too hard to get her back in. Nonetheless, it worries me since it's a new property. She's a perfect little kitty in every other way. Barely sheds, uses the litter box consistently and neatly, affectionate, huge kneader. I'm afraid she's distressed by being kept in. Any DLers have suggestions, tips to ease her transition?

According to Stevie Nicks & Mojo magazine, he didn't want Christine McVie to return to Fleetwood Mac for their current tour, saying she'd "burned her bridges" and "she can't just come and go." When Mojo magazine recently did a retrospective on "Rumors", he asked them not to use a photo of the band that included Christine on the cover. Stevie: "Much as Lindsey adores her - and he does; she's the only one in Fleetwood Mac he was ever willing to listen to - he doesn't want the first night reviews to be all about Christine's one song." I think he's just jealous because while he's a great producer, McVie and Nicks were and are better songwriters than he is.
Hot butch daddy.
The Kelly McGillis thread has me thinking. I came out in the 80''s and it seems that almost every gay rumor around in the 80''s and 90''s have been substantiated. \ \ Let''s list the rumors and those that have been confirmed: \ \ Kelly McGillis\ \ Jodi Foster\ \ George Michael \ \ Lead singer of Judas Priest\ \ Queen Latifah
He was the star of most of those Ray Harryhausen special effects movies ("The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad," "The Three Worlds of Gulliver," etc.) and did some other TV and movie work. Kind of hot, and definitely one of us. [quote]He retired from acting in 1978 and moved to San Francisco, where he ran a clothing and antiques shop. He died in his sleep in San Francisco on July 5, 2007 at the age of 81. He was survived by his partner of 46 years, Tom Nicoll.

And can Foxcatcher deliver nominations for Steve Carrell and Channing Tatum?

Is that all the people we think are gay who vehemently deny it....well, they are really gay.
It was this video that made me just give up pretending I could ever, ever be straight. After seeing this, I had no choice but to embrace the gay. God, he was so fucking hot.
Because the first thread was full. I find the new Verizon commercial loathsome. A mother and daughter are lamenting that the daughter is moving out. They are crying so much (and so dreadfully artificially) that there are subtitles. How do advertisers not understand such a commercial is so repulsive?
What does that mean? Some are on the bottom like normal.
Do we hate him for being a closet case.
Kanye West allegedly pulled a real Joe Biden at a performance in Melbourne last night when he threatened to stop a performance if a wheelchair-bound fan—whoops!—didn't stand up. According to the Daily Mail, a concertgoer said Kanye announced he couldn't perform a particular song unless everyone was standing, adding, "Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and shit." In this instance, Kanye reportedly moved on when the audience member he was waiting on waved a prosthetic limb in the air, confirming that he did, in fact, get special parking and shit. But this wasn't the only case of accidentally-asking-a-wheelchair-bound-fan-to-stand Kanye experienced last night—later, the Daily Mail reports Kanye sent his bodyguard to make sure a seated audience member was, in fact, handicapped: But when another fan remained seated, he stopped the song Good Life, saying, 'This is the longest I've had to wait to do a song, it's unbelievable,' before sending bodyguard Pascal Duvier into the arena to check whether the person was in fact in a wheelchair- which they were. 'The crowd was also yelling that he was in a wheelchair but he waited for Pascal's confirmation,' the witness said, while others said the crowd made 'wheelchair motions' to alert the singer to his mistake. Kanye continued with the performance after getting the confirmation, telling the wheelchair-bound fan that remaining seated was "fine." Phew! Luckily, as long as they're standing, Kanye has no problem performing to a crowd of people making wheelchair motions.

"She was so gracious and nice, and made me feel like I was part of show business, which quite frankly I never feel like I am," he said on his show. "I'm really, really, really rocked by her death. It was a very upsetting time when I'd heard that she died." Photos of celebrities pay respects to Joan Rivers:
Lesbian here and I desperately need a new look! My hair is past the middle of my back, and because of my age (45), it's looking pretty dated. Also, is not as full and voluminous as it once was. Some call it "mermaid hair", but it's thinning, and the blonde highlights, while pretty, have damaged the hell out of it. So now it's a thin, fine, wispy mess that tangles easily. A bit about me: I am 5'11", and need to lose 30lbs, but I am evenly proportioned. I have a long face (not as bad as Rumor Willis, probably about as bad as SJP..) and (depending on my age and how my hair was colored/cut) have been told I look like these celebrities: *Renee Russo (several times, even now. Usually they say "That actress from The Thomas Crowne Affair")) *Bonnie Hunt (once, two months ago) *Brooke Shields (When I was younger) Wendie Malick (a couple times about 10 years ago) *Tori Spelling (I almost slapped the shit out of that one. The woman had the nerve to say, "You look like a pretty version of Tori Spelling") ouch I did some runway modeling in my teens and early 20's, but no print jobs because I was told I have terrific charisma, and look great in person, but "photograph flat" .. I have to agree. Big eyes, high cheekbones, a pug nose and a long chin photograph terribly. Crazily enough, they loved my look enough for shows. Anyhow, I'm stuck in a rut and really need some advice. What worked for me when I was young, most certainly is not working now. HELP!
Hey guys! I just wanted some advice. I actually posted a while back about my sleaze bag company changing our position duties and cutting our pay. ( I am in sales).. I stuck it out. About 20% of the salesforce quit so far. And the numbers after all this are disastrous. So that is somewhat satisfying. Anyway, I am beyond burnt out, cannot sleep at night, and need a 4 week break. I have a year's salary saved up and could live on that for 12-16 months. But this is all I have and it was supposed to be a down payment for a house. I have also made all of my car payments (7 months ahead) and I am paid up through May 2015. My goal is to make it through Thanksgiving, quit this hellhole, and actually enjoy the holidays. And yes I know Jan-March will be next to impossible to find a job. These days, is it really suicide to NOT have a job when looking for another? America kind of blows that way. I really want a break. For the first time in my life I understand what burnt out means. It has really fucked with my confidence and outlook.
from towleroad Minnesota Police have released more photos of the man wanted in the murder earlier this month of his ex-boyfriend and former business associate. Lyle "Ty" Hoffman is the prime suspect in the killing of Kelly Phillips (right), an LGBT Minnesota activist and executive. Kelly-phillips-from-facebookSee the Minnesota Department of Public Safety website for more information and new photos of Hoffman. Meanwhile, thanks to many of Phillips' friends, the reward money offered by Crime Stoppers of Minnesota has increased to $10,000. One of those friends has pleaded for help in locating Hoffman: “The appeal I would make would be to the broader public. People don’t disappear in thin air, this execution happened at 8:40 in the morning along a busy interstate at a busy location. The car has been recovered, somebody knows something,” Tober said. “Our appeal is for people to be active, to be aware and to help.” Hoffman's sister has also asked for her brother to turn himself into police custody. Her message to him via an interview with FOX-9: "Turn yourself in. I can't imagine what Kelly's parents are going through -- family, friends. Please come forward. We're here to support you through it. We love you. We're family." According to the Star Tribune, Hoffman may be using apps to hide out. "...he may be relying on social media to find shelter while on the run. The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office released a 'wanted' poster Thursday that says 44-year-old Lyle 'Ty' Hoffman could be evading capture by using Craigslist and dating apps such as Grindr and Scruff." If you have any information about Hoffman's whereabouts, call 911 or Crime Stoppers of Minnesota's toll free number at 1 (800) 222-8477. local news vid at link
An Internet comment: " I am baffled by Kristin Chenoweth. I saw her years ago on stage, in her breakthrough part as Sally in a Broadway revival of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown (the show was meh, but she was terrific - check out her "My New Philosophy"). At some point soon after that apex, the wickedly funny, intensely charismatic woman I saw was replaced with a shrill, treacly, botoxed god-botherer. She still has the pipes, when she chooses to use them, but everything else always seems a little off. What happened?" Good question. When did she turn into her GCB character?

Her family has long occupied a prominent place among the Druze: Her father is a retired professor at the American University of Beirut, while her mother, Baria, is a well-known former beauty-queen turned journalist with the pan-Arab newspaper Al-Hayat. Plus, they hail from Baakline, birthplace of Emir Fakhreddine, a 16th century Druze prince. Those credentials bear great weight in the Druze sect, an ancient offshoot of Shiite Islam that boasts a mere 1.5 million followers.

An invitation from Barbra Streisand to record a duet is still the closest thing in pop to a royal summons. Her newest duets album, “Partners” (Columbia), with its blurred edges and pastel shades, is even mistier, gauzier and more texturally diffuse than such confections as “Guilty.” The instrumentation and the vocal tracks are so processed in pursuit of a high-gloss perfection that any sense of two people standing side by side and singing their hearts out is lost. Some cuts are so swamped in echo that Ms. Streisand’s male partners, especially John Mayer on “Come Rain or Come Shine,” Billy Joel in “New York State of Mind,” Josh Groban on “Somewhere” and John Legend on “What Kind of Fool” are only semi-recognizable. “New York State of Mind,” in particular, is an exercise in bombastic excess that smothers the song. The only distinctive element of the Mayer duet is a stunted little guitar solo. Ms. Streisand’s voice has noticeably diminished in size, but its signature quality, an ingrained sob, still exerts its pull. The choppy calls and responses between Ms. Streisand and her partners, however, lack conversational or narrative flow, and you have an uncomfortable sense that the parts were spliced together after the fact. Andrea Bocelli (“I Still Can See Your Face”), surprisingly, is a vocal mismatch. So is Blake Shelton (“I’d Want It to Be You”). A beyond-the-grave duet with Elvis Presley on “Love Me Tender” is a crass commercial stunt that should have been omitted. More listenable is the duet with Lionel Richie, “The Way We Were.” But in general, remakes of songs Ms. Streisand has recorded before are inferior to the originals. Only once, on a moderately swinging rendition of “It Had to Be You,” with Michael Bublé, is there a suggestion of ease and naturalness and genuine enjoyment. The most touching cut is the mother-son duet, “How Deep Is the Ocean,” by Ms. Streisand with Jason Gould. She knows what she’s singing about and really feels it.

So I finally got around to seeing two of the John Hughes teen film classics that '80s teens always rave about (Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles), and while entertaining, I was surprised at the strain of casual homophobia prevalent throughout the films. Use of words fag, queer or gay by the main characters are supposed to be funny har-har gags.. I guess that must have been a sign of the times. Mean-spirited homophobic humor definitely was not so common or tolerated in teen movies in the 00s and 10s. Was it your experience in the '80s that anti-gay attitudes and humor was the norm? Did you go to high school in that era and was this attitude common? The '80s seemed like a mean-spirited time for gay people, or really anybody who was "different." It seems like it wasn't until the late '90s that attitudes about gay people (amongst teens at least) started to change.

There are a whole slew of women at Motown who had multiple hits, more so than other women at other labels who did become solo stars. So why didn't more women emerge as solo stars from Motown? We have: 1) Diana Ross 2) Gladys Knight 3) Teena Marie 4) Mary Wells The Marvelettes had many hits with their two lead singers. Martha Reeves has an entire catalogue with and without the Vandellas. Even Jean Terrell and Mary Wilson sang lead on major Supremes hits (Stoned Love, Floy Joy). Tammi Terrell never made it as a solo, nor did Syreeta, Chris Clarke,Hattie Little, Liz Lands, Barbara Randolph, Barbara McNair, or Kim Weston. They all made great music. Why are the ones that are still living not major stars?

Singer Patti LaBelle takes stand in civil trial By Amanda Orr HOUSTON Wed Sep 17, 2014 7:22pm EDT (Reuters) - Singer Patti LaBelle took the stand on Wednesday in a federal civil trial and denied telling her 400-pound bodyguard to attack a man standing too close to her luggage at the Houston airport in March 2011. The man, former West Point cadet Richard King, has sued LaBelle, her son, the bodyguard and an assistant over what his attorneys have said was an unprovoked attack that left King with brain damage and forced his withdrawal from the service academy. King arrived in Houston with a blood alcohol level of 0.285 percent, or more than three times the legal driving limit. Security cameras recorded the melee and the aftermath when Houston firefighters took King to a hospital and responding police officers posed for photographs with LaBelle. LaBelle, 70, testified that she rolled down the window in her limousine to ask her bodyguard if all of their luggage had arrived since the flight had been delayed for over an hour, not to give instructions to assault King, she said. The grammy-winning singer said she did not see what happened after King punched her son, Zuri Edwards, who is also her manager. "After seeing my son beat up, I didn't want to look any more," LaBelle said when she was asked to explain why she didn't see the whole incident. LaBelle testified for about 30 minutes on Wednesday. The trial began on Tuesday before U.S. District Court Judge Keith Ellison. It is expected to last about a week. A Harris County jury acquitted LaBelle's bodyguard, Efrem Holmes, of charges stemming from the melee in 2013. An attorney for King asked whether LaBelle's posing for photographs with the officers could have influenced the investigation into the melee. "It could have been a homeless person, dear. I take pictures with anyone and everyone who asks," LaBelle replied. LaBelle said she heard King use a racial slur, but that words, even if offensive, did not warrant a physical attack. "I've been doing this for 52 years and I've heard all kinds of things and I don't react," LaBelle said.

This story has it all. Stretch Hummers. Booze. A right hook. And a former vice presidential candidate screaming, “Do you know who I am?” Just another Saturday night in Anchorage with the Palins? Several Alaska bloggers reported a brawl at a house party over the weekend for the Iron Dog snowmobile race (that Todd Palin has won four times). And it allegedly involved the former first family of Alaska. UPDATE: Anchorage Police Department’s communications director Jennifer Castro confirmed to the Loop what others have reported that there was a fight at a party where the Palins were in attendance: “On Saturday, September 6, 2014 just before midnight Anchorage police responded to a report of a verbal and physical altercation taking place between multiple subjects outside of a residence located on the 900 block of Harbor Circle. A preliminary investigation by police revealed that a party had been taking place at a nearby residence and a fight had broken out between multiple subjects outside of the residence. At the time of the incident, none of the involved parties wanted to press charges and no arrests were made. However, the case is still an active investigation and is being reviewed by APD and the Municipal Prosecutors Office. Alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the incident. Some of the Palin family members were in attendance at the party.” Here’s the salacious scoop from Alaska political blogger Amanda Coyne: “A nice, mellow party, until the Palin’s show up. There’s beer, of course, and maybe other things. Which is all fine, but just about the time when some people might have had one too many, a Track Palin stumbles out of a stretch Hummer, and immediately spots an ex-boyfriend of Willow’s. Track isn’t happy with this guy, the story goes. There’s words, and more. The owner of the house gets involved, and he probably wished he hadn’t. At this point, he’s up against nearly the whole Palin tribe: Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly, and it’s something to hear when Sarah screams, “Don’t you know who I am!” And it was particularly wonderful when someone in the crowd screamed back, “This isn’t some damned Hillbilly reality show!” No, it’s what happens when the former First Family of Alaska comes knocking. As people were leaving in a cab, Track was seen on the street, shirtless, flipping people off, with Sarah right behind him, and Todd somewhere in the foreground, tending to his bloody nose.” Is this real life or a scene from a Real Housewives show? If the above account is real … oh my. Meanwhile, because the drama never ceases, the next night, Bristol Palin returned to her home in Wasilla to find a stalker in her driveway, who was arrested and charged with felony stalking. Somewhere, producers at TLC are kicking themselves that “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” isn’t still on the air.

It's official: Fox's global phenomenon Glee will be cut in half for its final season. The musical from creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk will be trimmed from its typical 22-episode order to 13 episodes, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Sources tell THR that Murphy sat down with the network and studio 20th Century Fox Television to discuss the best way to end the series and decided that the story would be best told in one final run of 13 consecutive episodes. For its part, Glee has been showing its age. The musical has repeatedly hit series lows in its fifth season, with ratings down considerably from those of its early heyday. The move comes as little surprise after Glee — one of the lowest-rated scripted series to earn an additional season renewal after Fox's two-season pickup a year ago — was left off the network's fall schedule. The musical starring Lea Michele and Chris Colfer will return midseason as part of Fox's 2015 lineup. An exact date and time slot have not yet been revealed, but the network plans to make the sixth and final run of the series into a big event for fans. The decision to hold Glee for a midseason bow comes after the network trimmed its current fifth season from 22 to 20 episodes, following production delays at the start of the season after the death of star Cory Monteith. Sources told THR that Fox was mulling tacking the final two episodes onto season five, bringing the total to 24 after the show's two-season pickup a year ago. (The two-season renewal was for 44 episodes.) In May, then-Fox Broadcasting president Kevin Reilly said the standard 22-episode count for seasons is no longer the norm as more networks adopt a cable model in a bid to retain viewers and eventize programming. Murphy, meanwhile, told THR in April that he has a final idea for the series, which will not be "New York-centric" after the series was uprooted from its former Ohio-set high school location. "The final season is really its own story and its own location and while the New York stuff will be alive, the final season is not New York-centric at all," Murphy said at the time, noting there will be a time jump for the final episodes. "It really [will be] a lovely, fitting season that…dwells on the original people that were on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. That really is the last season.… We'll revisit some of the new kids that came and went. There's a return of the Jane Lynch-Matt Morrison characters in a big way. It's a really interesting, very sweet, satisfying ending to the story." The news comes mere hours after Murphy picked up a whopping 34 Emmy nominations for programs including HBO's The Normal Heart, FX's American Horror Story: Coven and Glee, which was nominated in the directing category for its 100th episode. Click here for our interview with Murphy about all the Emmy attention.

He says he’s a connoisseur of the “ass grab” — but this waitress just wasn’t on his menu. A wealthy hedge-fund titan made a bungled attempt to defend himself against a claim that he fondled a waitress at a trendy Soho restaurant, by bizarrely bragging that he gropes other women all the time. “I’ve grabbed plenty of girls’ asses in my life,” Brian H. Lederman boasted to The Post. “But I’ve never grabbed hers.” The married moneyman went on the defensive Tuesday after server Laura Ramadei made a tell-all Facebook post saying he ogled her like a piece of meat as he fondled her derriere at Lucky Strike on Grand Street. “When I asked you and your companion if you’d be eating, or needing anything else from me, you put your hand — ever so gently — ON MY ASS and asked if you could take me ‘to go,’ ” the 29-year-old wrote, adding that he left only a $2 tip. Lederman, a 57-year-old managing director at Swiss Performance Management & Fiduciary, angrily denied any physical contact — and threatened to sue Ramadei for defamation. But he didn’t help his case much by admitting he made a boorish comment toward her. “I clearly remember making a joke when the girl said, ‘What would you like,’ ” he said. “I kiddingly said, ‘I would like you to go with nothing on it.’ ” He said he was furious that she claimed he did more than spew sleaze. “That f–king c–t, for her to do something like that is pretty ridiculous,” he told The Post. He then threatened to make sure she doesn’t serve lunch in this town again. “I will make sure she doesn’t get another job in New York City. I know everybody,” he raged. “The bar owners, the club owners — that’s a terrible thing to write about somebody.” Ramadei, an aspiring actress who helps run an independent theater company, stood by her Facebook post. “He placed what felt like three fingers on my left butt cheek,” she told The Post. “It was very subtle, but it was definite contact.” She posted a picture of the money manager’s $15.24 bar tab on the social network. Ramadei said she deals with customer harassment all the time working at the noisy bar and posted her story to “raise awareness about how common it is.” Her rant has been shared almost 2,000 times since she posted it on Monday. “It was a small thing, but probably commonplace for women and servers,” she said.

DL has discussed the Dept of Social Services and welfare in the US. What would be the equivalent in other countries? How do you qualify?
If you could have any dog in the world what would it be and why. And yes, in real life we should all get a rescue. I know- but this is hypothetical. Irish Wolfhounds are amazing and seem like gentle giants, but I could even begin to afford how much food they eat.

I have a dear friend who I am a bit worried about. He's always been a wee bit high strung, and I know he's dealt with depression and panic attacks. But his recent behavior is troubling me. For example: He's almost constantly talking to himself or vocalizing in some way. He'll play a snippet of music, or a clip on YouTube, and play it over. And over, and over, and OVER. Not two or three times, but 20, 30 or more. He seems to be doing a lot of repetitive motion type things, where he moves something from one place to another, then moves it back. He's taking two to three hours to get ready for the day, in the shower/bathroom. I obviously am not privy (nor do I wish to be) about his bath time habits, but it's just odd - the shower runs, then the bath water, then the shower, six or seven times. Questions and decisions are a huge challenge for him. Ordering from a menu in a restaurant involves a level of decision making and inquiry comparable to the Spanish Inquisition. Simple things like going to the store or following directions are needlessly complicated to the nth degree. He's a normal sized person (in shape) but he is beginning to obsess about what he eats. He ordered a healthy dish in a restaurant and then spent the entire meal regretting it, talking about other menu items, and almost tearfully asking people to sample their dishes...and then saying "that's so decadent." When we have shared vacations or he visits, there is always evidence of middle of the night food raids. (the food stuff in and of itself may not be a huge concern, but in the larger context it's a red flag for me.) Is he mentally ill or does he have mental health challenges? Or is he just being neurotic? I'm willing to embrace my friend's quirks, but some of these newer or more severe behaviors make me wonder if I should say something.
Id love to watch!

It seems a shame that Ms. Jackson has never performed on Broadway, or even off-Broadway. Considering that tits-and-teeth Cheryl Ladd starred in Annie Get Your Gun and human hairbrush Farrah Fawcett did Extremities off-Broadway, you'd think that Kate could have snagged something. The good news: there's still time!

They've been enjoying an Italian getaway together. And unlikely friends Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez were pictured flying into Sardinia Airport via a private jet on Thursday. They were accompanied by their host, Italian businessman Gianluca Vacchi and his girlfriend. That day, Gianluca shared an Instagram video hopping out of the private jet and kissing the ground, with the caption, ‘SARDINIA finally!!! enjoy #GVlifestyle’ Zac, 26, and Michelle, 35, were last pictured together at Porto Cervo in Sardinia on July 25, embarking on a boat ride. It appears they have returned after vacationing elsewhere. Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Zac and Michelle looked coordinated on Thursday, and were both clad in head to toe black. The Neighbors actor sported a sweater over shorts with high socks and sneakers and a duffel bag slung over his shoulder. Feeling warm, he then removed his outerwear to reveal a blue and white T-shirt.

I cannot tell if this is for real or not. Cannot find other sources, have you heard anything about this?
The president of the country's best-known Christian ministry dedicated to helping people repress same-sex attraction through prayer is trying to distance the group from the idea that gay people's sexual orientation can be permanently changed or "cured." That's a significant shift for Exodus International, the 36-year-old Orlando-based group that boasts 260 member ministries around the U.S. and world. For decades, it has offered to help conflicted Christians rid themselves of unwanted homosexual inclinations through counseling and prayer, infuriating gay rights activists in the process. This week, 600 Exodus ministers and followers are gathering for the group's annual conference, held this year in a Minneapolis suburb. The group's president, Alan Chambers, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the conference would highlight his efforts to dissociate the group from the controversial practice usually called ex-gay, reparative or conversion therapy.

A great weekend and now snow after midnight. Man, Mother Nature is a bitch this winter. WTF
Personally, I've noticed that people who exhibit stereotypical masculine traits such as aggression, competitiveness and directness (of speech) are vilified for being assholes--whether they're male or female now. Stereotypical feminine traits such as cooperation, listening to other people, and caring are lauded much more often in both men and women (obviously, 'feminine' men still have to put up with homophobic attitudes in others). I'm not saying one is better than the other. Just curious as to the direction certain values are moving. Keep in mind that I'm just talking about traditional masculine and feminine TRAITS, not gender. I'm aware that women can be masculine and men can feminine. Thoughts?
I know I'm late to the show but have been watching it in syndication on Conedy Central and local programming and love it. All of the main characters are despicable and the situations are so wrong and so politically incorrect but so funny. Anyone else like the show? What are your favorite episodes?
Just wondering if this is going to be the pattern for now on, U.S. creates the group and then the group years later becomes the next boogeyman.

The Ukrainian government designated Chernobyl as a tourist attraction in an attempt to bring in more foreign dollars to use in their futile fight to keep their best looking teenaged girls from going to work strip clubs in the West. Troves of “nuclear tourists” have flocked to Chernobyl, many seeking an especially morbid experience like finding personal keepsakes left behind in the nuclear fallout evacuation, taking maudlin photos of dusty dolls, and then tributing the photos in the woods when their rented Filipina wives aren’t looking. The abandoned city features many amenities. Borderline dangerous radiation levels for the next two-thousand or so years, starving wolves, and former Soviet Union war criminals exiled to abandoned buildings who would strangle you for an ounce of non-radiated peanut butter. For the kids, there are the areas many scenic lakes and rivers that won’t necessarily give you skin cancer if you shower in the liquid form of argon within seconds of exposure. There’s plenty of stone ground cornbread and pickled herring to be had and there are never any lines. It already sounds better than Disneyland
And it looks nothing like the 73 year old's Old Face.
I've had a life-long nightmare with the post office. For the umpteenth time they put "vacant" on my mailbox. I've lived here for 2 1/2 years. It's a private bank of individual boxes inside a gated community. There have been literally weeks when I could not get paychecks, bills, magazines, anything. The last few places I've lived were even worse. Please don't tell me to call the "800" customer service number. Literally hundreds of calls later, I get a call from a heavily accented person who says says I should walk the 7 miles round trip to the post office, where after waiting in line for an hour, he will show me where my place is listed as vacant. He refuses to tell me how to correct the problem. The post office used to accuse my neighbors of stealing my ads and bills. This has never, ever been the case. Then the post office accused me of living in a poor neighborhood; also a total lie. You would not believe the horrible insults I've gotten over the years from Sen Reids and Shelley Berkeley's staff. I've been repeatedly blamed for moving too often. This is a lie, although it is my legal right to move when I choose. At least the NV Republican elected officials are sympathetic but powerless to do anything at all. Any advice? I wish the post office would go private. Maybe then I could get my paychecks from out of state without a nightmare.

I've been a Mac person for over a decade, but so far I haven't used (or even signed up for) iCloud. Now that I'm upgrading to the iPhone 6 this week, I wonder if it's finally time to give it a try. Does anyone here have anything positive or negative to say about it?
And this most likely caused her to stop breathing. Melissa can back up the Brinks truck as that clinic will be closed down.

With some trepidation, we're going on a one week NCL cruise from NYC to Bermuda. We're allowed 1 bottle of wine per person but would rather substitute it for liquor (rum or vodka). Does anybody here have suggestions about smuggling booze on a cruise ship, or is it an exercise in futility? TIA!
For those of you who have seen it, would you recommend watching it? It would be a long-term watch, obviously, as I believe 3 Seasons have already been filmed, right? Does it grab you pretty much right off or is it one of those "by the end of Season 1, you're really hooked" kind of things? Thanks.
Bono’s ego may soon be in need of its own charity, as the band’s free release of their new record “Songs Of Innocence” has been downloaded less than 200,000 times since being dropped into more than half a billion Apple iCloud accounts earlier this week. According to Billboard (but refuted by the band’s label), the record has been met with massive waves of criticism from both retailers and those who have actual taste in music. While it is understandable that UMG was quick to refute Billboard’s claims that the record had been downloaded by less than 5% of those given the option, this is likely nothing more than hopeful marketing for a record they knew would perform poorly. Billboard makes much of their reputation on accurate charts, and since they have no vested interest in whether or not an album does well, their word is far more reliable than that of companies with big money involved in the U2 brand. The band’s thirteenth formal studio album was sent free to the account of every iTunes user, but the users must opt to stream or download the record to experience the musical mediocrity. This move has infuriated retailers, as it will no doubt impact their bottom line when the album hits shelves next month. Target has a policy of not carrying records that have been released digitally beforehand, and they found themselves in a tough spot with Beyonce’s album late last year. Amazon also takes similar tactics, often denying such releases a strong presence or featured spot. In an effort to combat this, Universal Music Group says the physical release will include four tracks that iTunes will not get until November.
[bold]Apple offers a way to 'return' that free U2 album[/bold] Apple learned an important lesson this week: Not everyone likes U2. And even those who do really don't like it when you put music in their libraries without asking. A week after giving away a U2 album to most iTunes users, Apple has announced a way for customers to get rid of it. The company released instructions on how to delete the album from an iCloud account, complete with a giant "Remove Album" button. Somewhere, a single tear is rolling down Bono's cheek. At the end of Apple's iPhone and Apple Watch announcement last week, the company trotted out the rock supergroup to announce a major marketing collaboration. Apple was giving away U2's first new album in five years, "Songs of Innocence," to 500 million iTunes customers for free. It was a clever way to get more people to sign up for iTunes, and Apple even produced a special ad to promote the collaboration. Unfortunately, instead of just offering customers the option to download the album for free, Apple went ahead and gave it to them without asking. The album was dropped into the 500 million active iCloud accounts in 119 countries. The people who have their iTunes account set up to automatically download any purchases saw the files on their computers and mobile devices. Many complained that the way the album was distributed was invasive. It also came off as tone-deaf, since it happened so soon after iCloud's security was scrutinized for its part in high-profile celebrity photo hacks. Apple spent up to $100 million on the U2 marketing campaign, according to The New York Times.
John Edwards Trial: Testimony Reveals Elizabeth Edwards' Dramatic Confrontation With Husband Over Affair 05/2/12 GREENSBORO, N.C. — A former adviser to John Edwards recounted Wednesday how the former presidential candidate's now-deceased wife indignantly confronted her husband, baring her chest in front of staff members the day after a tabloid reported that he was cheating on her. During a session at Edwards' corruption trial that saw his 30-year-old daughter flee the courtroom in tears, Christina Reynolds described how a very upset Elizabeth Edwards stormed away from her husband in October 2007, then collapsed in a ball on the pavement outside a private airplane hangar. Reynolds and another woman guided the anguished wife into a nearby ladies room to compose herself, but she soon returned to the private hangar to again confront her husband. In front of several staff members, the woman who had endured grueling treatments for breast cancer took off her shirt and bra, exposing her chest. "'You don't see me anymore,'" Reynolds quoted Elizabeth Edwards as screaming. "He didn't have much of a reaction." As staffers scrambled to cover up Edwards' wife and huddle her into a car, Reynolds heard the Democratic candidate use a cell phone to call his wife's doctor to ask for help. Edwards then boarded a waiting jet and took off for his scheduled appearance in South Carolina, Reynolds said. She testified that Elizabeth Edwards had known about her husband's affair with Rielle Hunter before The National Enquirer made it public. Hers was the most stirring testimony of the day at Edwards' trial on corruption charges, as prosecutors worked to build a timeline of the affair and efforts to cover it up. Shortly before Reynolds began her account of what happened that day at the Raleigh airport, Edwards turned to his daughter Cate, a lawyer who has been seated in the front row for much of her father's trial. "I don't know what's coming," Edwards was heard saying. "Do you want to leave?" She responded to him in a whisper, grabbed her purse and walked out, wiping away tears. Edwards was heard saying, "Cate, Cate" as she left. She returned to court about a half hour later, after a brief recess. Shortly before her testimony about the airport argument, Reynolds recounted that Elizabeth Edwards asked her over to the couple's gated estate near Chapel Hill in the summer of 2007 to tell her that her husband had confessed to an affair the prior year. "I was very surprised by what she told me and I didn't want it to ever become public so the kids wouldn't have to know about it," the former aide said. Reynolds, now 37, had worked on John Edwards' successful U.S. senate campaign in 1998 and had quickly bonded with his wife. Both women grew up in military families and had moved around a lot as children. Reynolds worked as the research director and a senior communications adviser to the 2008 presidential campaign and recently joined the board of the educational foundation named for Elizabeth Edwards, who died in December of 2010. Edwards has pleaded not guilty to six counts related to campaign-finance violations. He faces up to 30 years in prison and $1.5 million in fines if convicted on all counts. At issue are payments from wealthy donors used to help keep his pregnant mistress out of public view. Edwards' attorneys have said he didn't know about the money.
When I was in the 7th and 8tth grade, we had gang showers. The gym teacher, a recent college grad, would stand at a small window and watch us showering. If anyone got a boner, which happened at that age, he would point it out and mock the kid. Sometimes he changed with us and showered with us. Sometimes, he would wrestle some of the guys in class when we were changing and then place his jock strap over their faces. It all sounds like a porn movie fantasy. But it's all true. I think that if this kind of behavior was reported today the teacher would be arrested. Was it standard behavior any where else? Just curious.
Whenever I want something fixed or cleaned at homes, the vendor ALWAYS tries to up-sell. Want your bathroom tiles acid washed instead of just power washed? Want your rugs shampooed with heavy-duty cleaners instead of standard cleaners? Want your air conditioners power cleaned instead of just wiped down? I have no idea if the up-sell is better or not, I just always fall for it--handing over and extra $50-$60. They always follow the same pattern. I called for some home fix. A guy comes to the apartment alone, checks out the issue, and offers the up-sell. When I say yes, he leaves to get the equipment and brings his crew. Even though I know this is going to happen, I STILL fall for it. WHY? Are up-sells really any better than the basic? Is really any difference between the basic and the up-sell?
It's my dream. One day. Please tell me about your experiences.

I was browsing through Wikipedia, looking at the largest religions and Christianity was the largest. Within Christianity, Catholicism is the largest denomination by far. Islam is a pretty big one, too, but I know there are different forms of Islam. I am wondering if Catholicism is the largest single denomination of a religion (if that makes sense). Anyway, if Pope Francis accepted gays or gay marriage (I know that is a huge if), it would have a profound effect on over a billion people (and that's just the people that call themselves Catholic). OK, end of random thought.

This seems to be the 'thing' du jour on FaceBook right now: Friends agreeing to post ten things a day they are grateful for for a week. And then challenging their friends, by name, to do it, too. I'm all for gratefulness. It's important. But going public with these lists seems crass and exhibitionistic. And really? Most of the things -- great husband, great job, gobs of friends, etc -- come across as nothing more than humble bragging. It's icky. Please continue to be grateful, but do it in private, please.
At 58, not bad.
So there always was a group of military guys who would perform on camera - gay sex for Dirk Yates. Some seemed to be gay for pay and others seem in the closet. There is just a scale I believe. What do you think. Are these guys gay or gay for pay? OR another category: guys that are just close to each other and can be more "intimate" because they've lived, breathed, worked hard around each other and sex is just whatever. They'd rather have chicks but blowing a guy? Not that big of a deal. What do you think?
"This is a real growth in me and that's not something I'm doing anymore," he told HuffPost Live's Caitlyn Becker in a Tuesday interview, referring to his vow to not practice sex before marriage.

Fifty-four percent of U.S. adults have abdominal obesity, up from 46 percent in 1999-2000, researchers reported in Wednesday's Journal of the American Medical Association. Abdominal obesity is defined as a waistline of more than 35 inches in women and more than 40 inches in men. During the 12-year period studied, the average waist size in the U.S. expanded to 38 inches for women, a gain of 2 inches. It grew to 40 inches for men, a 1-inch increase.
last friday i accompanied my roommate to a birthday dinner for his friend, whom i'd met before and gotten along with just fine. i expected i'd be splitting the tab with my roommate and a couple other people - picking up the birthday girl's tab, right? well first, not everyone shows up for the dinner, so it's three people picking up the birthday girl's tab. but second -- the birthday girl brings her childhood friend CLAIRE who is also having her birthday that night. so now i am at this dinner -- at a pricey steakhouse -- where i am dreading having to split *two* tabs between three people.. . .
If A&E doesn't cancel the show after this, everyone start boycotting A&E During an interview with the president of the Family Research Council last week, Robertson began discussing the "physiological downside to immorality," claiming that all sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS, are punishments from God. "I mean, a great question to ask is, 'Why is it that all of these just — is this coincidental that viewing all of the immoral conduct that America now is participating in, I've asked a lot of people: Do you think it's a coincidence that all of these debilitating — and literally, it can cause death — diseases follow that kind of conduct?'" Robertson said. "God says, 'One woman, one man,' and everybody says, 'Oh, that's old hat, that's that old Bible stuff' and I'm thinking well, let's see now," he continued. "A clean guy, a disease-free guy, and a disease-free woman, they marry and they keep their sex between the two of 'em, uh, they're not gonna get chlamydia and gonorrhea and syphilis and AIDS. It's safe. "Now to me, either it's the wildest coincidence ever that horrible diseases follow immoral conduct or it's God saying, 'There's a penalty for that kind of conduct.' I'm leanin' toward there's a penalty toward it,' Robertson said.
Boy oh boy, what is going on behind the scenes and how much do these people hate each other? There was major drama during Josh Elliott's tenure and departure, George S ( cant spell his name) looks bored, awkward and completely detached, and theres a long standing rumor that Lara Spencer and the other blonde anchor hate each other- at least when blonde #2 came in as a replacement for Josh Elliott. Gillian Zee seems like the younger sister none of them really like. The show should just have a nude Gio Benitez doing the news. Is TODAY a better show?

Do you find this statement to be true? Do you think there is something more to the "gay experience" (if such a thing exists) than just sex between two people of the same gender? Is there inherent qualities, traits and mentalities that link us all together? I personally think that there is a unique experience and even culture that we have to ourselves that is separate from the straight world, as un-PC as that is to think these days. I think that there is definitely something more to being gay than just our sexuality. I can't put my finger on it but it's there.

Facebook has started enforcing their real names policy and has been deleting the profiles of drag queens who won't change the name on their Facebook pages to their legal names. Facebook says that the drag queens can start fan pages. The drag queens say that their drag names are how people know them and the fan pages don't have the same capabilities of regular pages so that they limit social interaction. Facebook has agreed to meet with the drag queens. Who is going to win this battle?
It''s just like "Twin Peaks," down to the plot being set in motion by a beautiful high school girl (with a secret life) being found murdered in the Pacific Northwest, her father discovering her death and screaming in agony while the mother hears on the phone, and then a close-up of a photo of her. And ominous mists and pine trees. The only difference: it''s without any sense of humor or style whatsoever.\ \ The cast is like a Who''s Who of cable TV, with Mireille Enos ("Big Love"), Betty Draper''s brother William from "Mad Men," and, inevitably, Michelle Forbes. Plus: the improbably handsome Billy Campbell!
The thing is 14" thick. I read on the packaging that the mattress wasn't intended to be used with box spring foundation. I happen to have a good one, and was wondering what would be the downside of placing the foam mattress on top? I checked the foundation to see if there were substantial spaces between the cross supports and there isn't. Any DL'ers have experience in this matter?

Sunday night, people noticed Urban Outfitters had a new item for sale: a faux bloodstained Kent State sweatshirt for a modest $129.00.

It runs in my family. It's a form of psoriasis, but it's episodic, it comes on after a strep throat, then fades over 6-12 months. The first time was frightening! I recall reading in my Dermatologist's office at the time about GIRD, this strange Gay cancer that appeared about then, and hoping I didn't have that. I've only had this psoriasis outbreak twice. My nephew may have it now, poor kid. I worked with a fellow once who had the true "heartbreak of psoriasis", which is permanent and completely disfiguring. You leave huge sheets of skin every where you walk, sit, lie. Your hair is matted with dandruff. It's terrible. If you dare to click on the link, make sure someone has smelling salts at the ready.

Just started watching the new season of Dallas. So far after only five minutes in they have done two very big things right. One, they showed John Ross's bulge in some tight undies. Two, they have cast photos in the opening credits. For me that was what was missing from the first two seasons. Now it's Dallas!

It's exciting to vote for the president, but other races don't seem nearly as important/exciting, especially when it's impossible to know or care about things like city controller.
I bought tickets in March and was incredibly excited. It was motivation to get my life back in order. I've lost 30lbs. It wasn't enough. I can still barely get around. I am too embarrassed to be the 300lb woman on a scooter. I haven't left my house in over a year. I really wanted to go. I feel like I want to cry but tears are stuck.I've already spent $200 on the badge and $650 on a non-refundable hotel deposit. I hate myself so much right now. Please, no fat hate. I hate myself enough today. I made poor choices. My body can't support me. I wasted $$$. I suck.
& Chrome keeps crashing on my mac. Anyone alternative recommendations? TIA
Did you know that we currently have technology to create tires that will last for decades and will never go flat? Prior to WWI tires were made entirely of rubber. For the war effort manufacturers switched to the current air tires we now use in order to save rubber. So the question is, why didn't they switch back once the war was over? It's because of profit. The tires we have now don't last and we are forced to buy replacements. If we were to switch back to rubber tires then at best we would have to retread them after a few years but they would last for a very long time.
How was your experience?
But don't take it from her. She dislikes musicals as a whole.
"The Mysteries of Laura" has inspired some of the most brilliantly bitchy reviews I've ever read.
Can someone explain top me why this is being mounted again on Broadway when the original only ran 91 performances? Also, this new version is supposed to be even darker than the original. Why would you darken a Broadway show that was already so inherently depressing?
With a tattoo of his wife's and children's names on his arm. Originally I thought it was sexy but now I'm just jealous. I only get to see him about once a week. What should I do?
Giving and/or receiving. Hot or not?
For a couple of years now people have been wondering why they stripped Angelea Preston of her win. Now the big reaveal....It's because Angelea used to be an escort. She's now suing for 3 million dollars!
I do. A bit of butter and some sugar definitely makes a difference on pie crusts. I can't stand eating crust that has no taste.
They come in with flattering comments and are oh so helpful and on your side, but their secret agenda is to take the life you've worked so hard to have?
I have a four year old orange tabby female. She lived on the streets when I found her and she's always had this weird angry sounding meow. Sometimes people are scared of her because of it and think she'll attack but she's a sweetheart. Some other cats seem nervous around her too. I've had her for three years and the vet says she's healthy. Do some cats just have very different voices?
Is it still as big as it was? In the mid-90s and early ''00s, way too many gays were hooked on it. I''m not hearing as much about it so wondering if it''s still going strong or is people are wising up/moving on to something new.
I nominate Justin Bieber or Robin Thicke
It really is a wonder drug isn't it? Anyone here use it?
Do you make noises for no reason when getting out of the car or sitting down? This seems to happen out of nowhere when we age. Besides "getting older" - is there a name for this?
I just listened to her new Christmas album and I think I''m going to have to go on anti-depressants. It''s dire.%0D\ %0D\ I wish that woman would just stop.
In memory of the "OMG Obama is failing in Iraq!" masturbatory fapfest that was uncermoniously shut down, a new thread on the Benghazi hearings starting tomorrow. You're welcome! ------------------------- Just in time for election season, the Great Big Benghazi Hearings and Airing of Grievances are starting Wednesday, so get ready for yet another round of Fox stories about “stand down” orders, Barack Obama sleeping on the job, and of course Susan Rice covering up the attack by saying that it started as a demonstration against an anti-Muslim video (which it did). Strangely enough, as David Corn points out over at Mother Jones, the very first session of the hearings won’t actually focus on any of those rightwing fixations. Instead, it will actually look into something that may be useful and worth congressional review: What has the State Department done to improve security for American diplomats after Benghazi? Weird! Corn notes that the focus of this first hearing was set by Democrat Adam Schiff of California, who managed to convince the Select Committee chair, Republican Trey Gowdy, that it would be worthwhile to look at how State has implemented the recommendations of an independent review board. So at least one day of the hearings will be about “substance, not conspiracy theories.” Of course, that leaves plenty of time for conspiracy nonsense later. In some ways, these are the hearings that Fox News built, and a new report from Media Matters details just how nutso the network was about pushing the Benghazi story. In the 20 months between the attack on Sept. 11, 2012, and the formation of the House Select Committee on Benghazi in May 2014, Fox ran 1,098 afternoon and prime-time stories on Benghazi in the five shows that the report reviewed (sorry, Fox & Friends — you said a lot of stupid stuff too, but you weren’t counted). That averages out to about 13 Benghazi stories a week. HuffPo has a nice breakdown of the kinds of stories the report looked at, including 244 segments that claimed that Barack Obama didn’t initially call Benghazi “terrorism” or a “terrorist act,” although as we may recall from that one debate with a rich guy, Obama did call it an “act of terror” the morning after the attack. This does not count, of course, because he did not use the word “terrorism,” and Barry H. Bamz is a pawn of the New Word Order. Other fun numbers: 478 segments about Susan Rice’s talking points on the Sunday news shows the weekend after the attack; 281 segments claiming that there was a “cover-up” of the events, with over 100 comparisons of Benghazi to comparatively unimportant scandals like Watergate and Iran-Contra (yeah, but 4 Americans didn’t DIE in Watergate, now did they????); 105 reminders that Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign is going to have to answer All The Benghazi Questions; and 174 Benghazi stories in just the month before the 2012 election — even to the exclusion, on Fox, of coverage of Hurricane Sandy.
According to Christopher Andersen's book "Barbra, the Way She Is" Babs was offered the mother role in Disney's 1976 hit movie. So, what would the movie be like if she was cast in it? In this version Jodie Foster would commit a suicide after she gets her own body back at the end of the movie, because once she got a taste of how it's like to live in her mother's gorgeous body she can't live normally in her own skin anymore.
How did she manage to land Sting? He was quite attractive when young.
I hate, hate, hate cats. They smell. They cause allergies. They're sneaky and annoying.
I love it. It's so peaceful and serene.
I may travel there in Mid-January. I have checked out a place called Jungle Bay there. I need a stress free vacation. Thinking natural beauty, nature hikes, swimming, spa.
Someone stole her credit card and charged $400 to it in the first hour alone! How will she pay her bills now?
must she pick at them? This is why dykes get a bad name.
I was looking for one of Enrique Iglesias new song (Loco) on youtube and came upon this video of him serenading a gay guy. It has several years but is very sweet. Never understood why he's always been so critiziced here
[quote]In her private life things weren’t much better. The California courts had decided that her sentence for drink driving and violation of probation should include not only jail time but 12-hour shifts in a morgue. For four months, she worked from 4am to 4pm. It was, as she puts it, “F’d up and inappropriate – because a lot of other people were meant to do it, and they were like: 'No, they can’t handle it. Lohan can.’ It’s different for me than it would be for other people – like, no one would really have to work at the morgue in LA and roll a body bag for Whitney Houston.” [quote]Still, she made the best of it: “I know it sounds really dark and strange, but I thought it would be a lot worse. I kind of regulated a lot of it. I’d tell people: 'You didn’t fold that sheet properly’, because I’m OCD with folding.” It took her a while, she said, to see the point of the “road blocks” that were being put in her path. And then she had an epiphany. “I was like: OK, wait. Something needs to change, and I think that’s me.”
There's a hot new attorney who just joined our firm, and I want him inside me. How do I convey this subtly?
I don't have too weak a chin but think an implant or a temporary liquid injection would help. Anyone had an implant or injection?
I travel a lot and I'm tired of having several bottles of cleansers, soaps, and creams in my shaving kit. I need one good multi purpose soap that I can use on my face, my body, and for shaving. Something gentle, and non-comodogenic with a nice light scent. Preferably in bar form. And reasonably priced. Nothing too expensive. Something I can buy in a drug store. Any recommendations? Aveeno? Cetaphil?
Just discovered him. Countless videos available, all sizzling hot. He seems to be a genuine freebeing with a blog, Facebook page, etc. I would think he is also doing very well financially. He's definitely got IT!!
Home Made Butterfingers: Need: 1 bag of candy corn 1 jar of peanut butter 1 bag of chocolate (your choice of almond bark, chips, bars, etc.) Aluminum pan or other container Knife, bowl, spoon, spatula and forks Waxed paper Buy as close to equal amounts of candy corn and peanut butter as you can. When I made this I used 16 grams of candy corn and 20 grams of peanut butter. It worked great. Place the candy corn in a microwavable bowl and melt them on high. This will usually take 2-2 1/2 minutes. Stir to make sure all the pieces have melted. Add the peanut butter. Combine well. The mixtures will thicken. Dump mixture in aluminum pan or other contain and flatten out. Be careful as mixture will be hot. Pan can then be placed in fridge to cool. Once cool, cut it into small strips and then into smaller bars. Melt chocolate in a bowl in the microwave. Dip and cover bars in chocolate. Use one or two forks for good coverage. Set bars on waxed paper to dry. By the next day the peanut butter/candy corn center will harden. These taste just like store-bought butterfingers. For Chick-O-Sticks: Create the same candy corn/peanut butter mixture but add toasted coconut. Roll into logs and allow cool. For Atkins Peanut Butter Bars: Create the same candy corn/peanut butter mixture. Cut into small pieces and dip in a powdered sugar glaze. Place pieces on waxed paper and allow glaze to dry before eating. You Are Welcome!
Is this real? Geez...
Is he the new Cody Cummings ?
So sad. Nicole Kidman’s father, Dr. Antony Kidman, has died after a fall in Singapore. The beloved dad was visiting his youngest daughter Antonia and her children. Dr. Antony Kidman died on September 12 following a fall in his hotel room in Singapore. Nicole Kidman’s, 47, father was visiting his daughter Antonia Kidman, 44. Antony, who was in his 80s, was taken to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead. Our thoughts go out to the Kidman family at this time. Nicole Kidman’s Father Dead The Kidman family is “in shock and is grieving” following the sudden death of Antony, Nicole’s publicist and longtime friend Wendy Day told Daily Mail Australia. “I think that some time and privacy is needed to deal with this shock and tragedy.” Antony was in Singapore visiting his daughter and her family when he fell shortly after eating breakfast at his hotel on September 12. The Kidman patriarch was taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, Channel News Asia reports. Antony was a clinical psychologist at Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, Australia and a director of health psychology at the University of Technology, Sydney. “We don’t know how to deal with this at the moment or how to digest the fact he’s gone,” a hospital source told News Corp Australia, according to Daily Mail. UTS Vice-Chancellor Professor Attila Brungs recently spoke out on the tragic death of Dr. Kidman. “It is with great sadness that we learn of Dr. Tony Kidman’s sudden passing,” Attila said in a statement, according to Daily Mail. “During his 43 years at the University of Technology, Sydney, Tony has contributed greatly – as a colleague, as a researcher, and as a health practitioner. Tony will be missed by all at UTS. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.” A police spokesperson said they were investigating the death as “unnatural,” Reuters reports. The term “unnatural death” in Singapore ofter refers to falls or other accidents, according to Daily Mail. HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Nicole’s reps for comment. Nicole and her father were very close. She frequently brought her father and mother with her to premieres and awards shows. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Nicole’s family during this difficult time.
If so, please identify yourself and explain to us what makes you tick. I'm seriously curious. There seems to be an overwhelming number of your sort on Datalounge these days. You can't all be Christian freepers, can you? I know some gay people are also always pointing accusing fingers at people who actually do things with their penises.
OK! Magazine reports Mendes is seven months pregnant with Gosling's baby. “She’s been ready for motherhood for a while now and to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her!” a supposed insider told the tabloid. A source also said wedding bells may ring soon, too: “Ryan doesn’t think they need to marry just because they are having a baby, but Eva believes it’s important to have their lives fully intertwined." "Access Hollywood" also reported on the pregnancy, citing an unnamed source.
According to various reports, four gay NFL players will soon come out of the closet. But veteran free safety Kerry Rhodes wants to make it clear: he will not be one of them. Pictures of Rhodes surfaced this week on Media Take Out in which the player's arms are around a man in a tank top, but Rhodes tells TMZ the shots are harmless. "Photos have been circulating of my former assistant and I that have caused some rumors regarding my sexuality, and I wanted to address the situation," Rhodes says in a statement. "I am not gay." The free agent adds that the pics were snapped during a "casual" vacation with his "entire business team." Rhodes does say he agrees with Magic Johnson overall, however: he's all for those athletes who actually are homosexual: "I know a lot of people are recently talking about athletes struggling to come out to their fans right now, and I support them, as well as wish those individuals comfort."
You guys don''t know what you''re missing. My cooter got punished last night. It''s almost 10 and it feels like his cock is still pounding my hole. I really wish every gay man could experience that just once. I am laying in bed still luxuriating in the feeling. \ \ Its gonna be a good Sunday. Love to you all.
The rules: 1. Only one question can be asked. If more than one question is asked I will only answer the first question and ignore any other question. 2. The question must be about you. No questions on celebrities, deaths, earthquakes, stock market, etc. 3. No vague "tell my future" requests. Questions should be specific. 4. Do not post any identifying information. 5. No follow up questions. 6. Include a short story or incident from your past that has an emotional impact on you. This will help me tune into your energy without you having to publicly out yourself here. Don't write a novel. It doesn't have to be long. 7. If you forget to post your story I will ignore your question. You must repost everything again in one post. Do not split it up by telling me your question and your story in separate posts. 8. I'm not taking the Randi Challenge. Don't treat me as if I am. 9. Be warned that in the last thread people like to reply pretending to be me. I will never answer in a cruel fashion to someone. In my real life I am a professional psychic and I know how to treat people and am very caring and understanding. People tell me everything so there's nothing I haven't heard before. 10. Be open-minded. You don't have to be a believer. However, you can't be a debunker. The more closed-off you are the crappier you reading will be. You can block your energy so that I can't pick up on it. Be positive. 11. I will end the readings when I decide to go to bead. I will post a message saying I am ending the readings. Any post made after I post that message will be ignored. Good Luck! :)
This sounds like a great way to start a p0rno.
They seem like a whole other species compared to me. They both terrify and intrigue me. The endless sports talk, the competitiveness, the aggression, the cigars, the beers, the poker games, the strip clubs, the lack of emotion, intuition, and sympathy. I can't identify with any of it, and I have anxiety attacks just thinking about being around all that maleness. Yet, I'm intrigued by, full of lust for, and maybe jealous of them. They've got this whole other level of masculinity that for some reason passed me by. I'm much more comfortable around women. Normally I don't think too much about this, but it comes to the fore every time I have to attend some all-male function. My supervisor is having a bachelor party this weekend. It's compulsory that I go, and I'm filled with anxiety at the thought of just being in the company of all these rowdy, tough guys. It's actually traumatizing to be included as part of this pack. Anyone else feel this way?
Hoo boy, can you imagine what [italic]All in the Family[/italic] would have been like if that had happened.
A friend of mine is part of a group of a gay clique of guys. They have a name, which I'm not sharing. Apparently two of the "members?" started fucking around and there is a lot of drama because the clique wasn't consulted. These are all successful, wealthy 30+ guys. This is absolutely absurd right?
Is this a new weapon to prevent me from doing any last minute bidding?
Who will take over as head honcho at the Fashion Police?
It's like they're struggling to break free.
I know there was a thread on here a few months ago asking if he had health problems, and the verdict was that he was just losing weight.\ \ \ That said, he''s talking funny. He''s having trouble enunciating his words. Maybe it''s just a new set of false teeth, but whatever it is he''s been doing it for weeks and it isn''t going away.\ \ \ Are we sure there isn''t something wrong?
Love the man, just wondering.
I've re-connected with an old friend from college who moved to my city. He was closeted back then (I was out), and he's wanted to be friends. We've had fun together, and have bonded over some common life changes (we've both had parents that recently died, for example), but he often talks to me (particularly when he calls me up or texts me) in this incredibly annoying kidding way, calling me "whore" or "slut" all the time--even "fag." When I've suggested it's annoying, he says, "I'm just kidding!" (He teases people all the time, like he's still in a fraternity, even though we're in our late 30s.) I've never liked it, but as it keeps continuing I'm beginning to feel it's pretty hostile, even though he clearly looks on me as a close friend. And I being too sensitive? Should I lay down the law and tell him to knock it off, or just put up with it and toughen up?
Owing to her presidential run, Madame Clinton must look squeaky clean, though we all know better.
The official thread to discuss all matters pertaining to DL fave and acting luminary Hilary Swank. Carry on.
In his new book The Way Forward: Renewing the America Idea, Ryan discusses his father's alcoholism and death of an apparent heart attack when Ryan was just 15. Todd said the story grabbed him because he'd lost his own father under similar circumstances. Todd told Ryan that it had taken him a long time to come to terms with his father's alcoholism. Ryan said he was familiar with the period of denial.
At the Doll House, a 1930's New Orleans bordello, Hallie is the main attraction both for clients and for Jo, the madame. Her comfortable if tedious life is disrupted by the arrival in town of Dove Linkhorn, her true love of three years before who is now searching for her. When Linkhorn learns the truth of her profession he triggers a chain of events involving a number of people, including the young Kitty with whom he travelled from Texas and who is now the Doll House newest recruit. Walk on the Wild Side is a 1962 film directed by Edward Dmytryk, adapted from the 1956 novel A Walk on the Wild Side by American author Nelson Algren. The film had a star-studded cast, including Laurence Harvey, Capucine, Jane Fonda, Anne Baxter, and Barbara Stanwyck, and was scripted by John Fante. It was not well received at the time; Bosley Crowther of the New York Times described it as a "lurid, tawdry, and sleazy melodrama."
He's so cute and funny. He has three kids but seems so gay-friendly. I think I could get him drunk and kiss him. I'm an atheist so I know there's no marriage in our future. But I can dream, can't I? Too bad kosher food is terrible.
I don't think we'll ever see a gigantic land army of millions of jack boots marching about, although we have seen glimpses such as in Boston after the marathon bombing. No, US fascism is much more subtle, a very slow and gradual process, the destruction of a society thru degradation (enticing materialist and superficial extravagances). It's the withering away of the middle class, the withering away of protections for workers. It's welfare for the top 0.01% disguised as welfare for the poor, etc. Our susceptibility to manipulation, machination and malfeasance...our willful ignorance. We turn a blind eye because as the U.S. becomes more sexually decadent, and morally relative, the erosion of our freedoms and liberties is speeding up, but we don't notice because of our hedonistic debased and lascivious culture thanks to the masters of propaganda, (the corporate-owned and controlled mass media, for example), who create pop culture, not to mention the brainwashing violence of video games and the iphone zombies. To corrupt a nation effectively one must make sure that the descent into degradation is an infinitely slow and imperceptible process, one miniscule step at a time—just as those who wish to cook frogs alive in a saucepan, reducing them to a state of comatose stupor, are advised to place them in cold water and boil them to death as slowly as possible. In other words, psychological warfare subversion & control of Western society... gradually reduce men to beasts, inverting the concepts of good and evil, if you wish to control them.
She has yet to go wrong on the Red Carpet!
A coworker of mine bought one from the Phillipines recently. What are these guys usually like?\ My coworker happens to be overweight and socially awkward, but do you think there are desirable men who do this just so they can have a subservient wife?
Although this twitter exchange is disgustingly homophobic I have been physically unable to stop laughing.
Wow, this shit is still on the air?
Would you, or do you wear speedos to the beach?
So who are you guys voting for? John Tory has been saying over and over and over again this message If you want to get rid of Ford you cannot vote for Olivia Chow? Which explains why John Tory is at the top of the polls But who are you voting for? Vote below and then discuss.
Obviously excluding horror classics such as "Exorcist," "Shining," etc. Candyman (1992) is a great example. Excellent, overlooked little horror gem that also happens to star two criminally underrated actors as the leads (Virginia Madsen, Tony Todd). Tony Todd perhaps being the most underrated black actor or all time (but that's another thread).
They''re all so ridiculously good looking and hot. And don''t get me started on their thick, meaty bubble butts. They REALLY get my boihole all atwitter. Many of them are bi too. Most of the guys in my gym are Dominican, and I''ve slept with at least six of them in the past year. %0D\ %0D\ %0D\ I moved to Inwood last year, and they''re all around. They''re everywhere. It''s like a wet dream come to life. I never want to live anywhere else. Seriously addicted to these men. Surely there must be a 12-step program for me. Anyone else totally in awe of Dominican men?
Is he gay?%0D\ %0D\ I hope so.%0D
With major league baseball season soon to start, let''s hear some gossip about the players, past and present.
I'm sure there will be absolutely NO disagreements!!
The grief fest begins soon, with mourners and a reading of names. Complete with moments of silence so that the professional victims (now rich) can stay depressed for the rest of their lives and the foundation can sell a lot of memorabilia (crap) at the museum.
The common fees in NYC seem so high. Do you owners come out ahead of the game financially nowadays?
Such a lovely, close family. "While Nicole Kidman grieves in Sydney, her son Connor Cruise is continuing his vacation in Morocco. The 19-year-old DJ, who was last in Australia in March, is holidaying with friends and hinted that he may not be returning for the funeral of his grandfather, Dr Antony Kidman, who died in Singapore on Friday. In a post on his Instagram account, taken in the mountains of Morocco on Monday, Cruise said in reply to a comment, "We are in Casablanca for another week!! Come!" Cruise, who was adopted by Kidman and her then husband Tom Cruise in 1993, chose to live with his father after the couple divorced in 2001. The Railway Man star then remarried before giving birth to two other children, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret. He has previously defended his reportedly estranged relationship with the actress and tweeted that he was "shocked" after the news of Dr Kidman's death broke. "I don't care what people say, I know that me and mum are solid. I'll always love my mum," he told Women's Day."
The Following starring Kevin Bacon started tonight on Fox. He plays a former FBI agent. James Purefoy stars as a killer. It is being called a psychological drama.
Im intrigued by the fact that there are soooo many gay men addicted to it. Do they really put crack in it keep people addicted? I think Ive only had two my entire life. I really don't understand how you get hooked on something that tastes like real Coke mixed with sink water. Please explain.
It starts tonight (7/13). From Guillermo del Toro and the guy who does Bate Motel. Starring Corey Stoll, the man with the biggest dildo collection I've ever seen! I'm interested. It's a vampire story that's NOT about some kind of love triangle.
