[italic]The Last American Virgin[/italic], starring whomever, about a teen guy who loves a girl and loses the girl to his horny straight friend and, of course, he gets used by both as he loses both girl and sense of whatever integrity he may have ever once had. It's passed off as a coming-of-age sex comedy with only white people.
Ricky Martin was on Ellen Friday talking about his kids, boyfriend, and performing his new single "Come With Me" I remember when he came out with "Livin La Vida Loca" everyone wanted him (male and female). And once he came out everyone just kind of turned him on mute. Is this just me or do you all see the same thing?
For me: Extremely wealthy, good career, Awesome husband, loose relationship with mom, close relationship with dad, lots of friends and good health.
Watched incredible hulk and thought he was hot in that. What are your thoughts on him? Why didn't he become a big name like Tom Cruise? He's equally as handsome.

Do you think he's hoping to find a wealthier, less controversial suitor? The partner of the Guardian journalist who has written a series of stories revealing mass surveillance programmes by the US National Security Agency was held for almost nine hours on Sunday by UK authorities as he passed through London's Heathrow airport on his way home to Rio de Janeiro. David Miranda, who lives with Glenn Greenwald, was returning from a trip to Berlin when he was stopped by officers at 8.05am and informed that he was to be questioned under schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000. The controversial law, which applies only at airports, ports and border areas, allows officers to stop, search, question and detain individuals. The 28-year-old was held for nine hours, the maximum the law allows before officers must release or formally arrest the individual. According to official figures, most examinations under schedule 7 – over 97% – last less than an hour, and only one in 2,000 people detained are kept for more than six hours. Miranda was released, but officials confiscated electronics equipment including his mobile phone, laptop, camera, memory sticks, DVDs and games consoles. Since 5 June, Greenwald has written a series of stories revealing the NSA's electronic surveillance programmes, detailed in thousands of files passed to him by whistleblower Edward Snowden. The Guardian has also published a number of stories about blanket electronic surveillance by Britain's GCHQ, also based on documents from Snowden. While in Berlin, Miranda had visited Laura Poitras, the US film-maker who has also been working on the Snowden files with Greenwald and the Guardian. The Guardian paid for Miranda's flights. "This is a profound attack on press freedoms and the news gathering process," Greenwald said. "To detain my partner for a full nine hours while denying him a lawyer, and then seize large amounts of his possessions, is clearly intended to send a message of intimidation to those of us who have been reporting on the NSA and GCHQ. The actions of the UK pose a serious threat to journalists everywhere. "But the last thing it will do is intimidate or deter us in any way from doing our job as journalists. Quite the contrary: it will only embolden us more to continue to report aggressively." A spokesperson for the Guardian said: "We were dismayed that the partner of a Guardian journalist who has been writing about the security services was detained for nearly nine hours while passing through Heathrow airport. We are urgently seeking clarification from the British authorities." A spokesperson for Scotland Yard said: "At 08:05 on Sunday, 18 August a 28-year-old man was detained at Heathrow airport under schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000. He was not arrested. He was subsequently released at 17:00." Scotland Yard refused to be drawn on why Miranda was stopped using powers that enable police officers to stop and question travellers at UK ports and airports. There was no comment from the Home Office in relation to the detention. However, there was surprise in political circles and elsewhere. Labour MP Tom Watson said he was shocked at the news and called for it to be made clear if any ministers were involved in authorising the detention. He said: "It's almost impossible, even without full knowledge of the case, to conclude that Glenn Greenwald's partner was a terrorist suspect. "I think that we need to know if any ministers knew about this decision, and exactly who authorised it." "The clause in this act is not meant to be used as a catch-all that can be used in this way."

I hear that Richard Dean Anderson is being courted to return as Dr. Jeff Weber. I would definitely like to see him reprise the role. Seriously, what are the major plot-lines that I would need to understand in order to pick-up where I left off? Does Leslie Charleson appear much as Monica? What about Stuart Damon/Alan Quartermaine? I know that Tony Geary/Luke is an occasional character. I know all about his son Lucky. Also, I know that Robin has AIDS and that her father, Robin Scorpio, died in General Hospital. I guess that the major story-line now concerns Sonny and Brenda (or has she not returned?) I know that it's a lot of ground to cover, but I have total faith in the collective memory of DL memories. Please fill me in. I also read in a current thread that Donna Mills has joined the cast. What is the story with that? And, Cheryl, SHUT UP!
I read somewhere that he was a drug addict and it almost ruined him. Iron Man saved his life.
I hate working, I'm sick of my partner's bullshit but I'm afraid to be alone, my friends suck, and life is just a pain. I'm over all the bullshit. I took a mental health day yesterday, but now I just want another one. Xanax is the only thing that helps.
One of the top five actresses of the 20th century in my opinion. Nowadays she does just about any film and is not too picky in her roles. Sure she wants a nice little nest egg for retirement. But still doesn't detract from what she has accomplished in her career. Was almost booed offstage in 1978 when she won her oscar for her politics. Lots of love here for Maggie and Judi. No one here mentions Vanessa much. She is definitely their equal. Thoughts and opinions?
When I first started working here and would overhear her on the phone with him(she talks to him ever day, usually more than once), I thought she was talking to her husband or boyfriend. She calls him her "sweet, sweet muffin" and makes smooching sounds into the phone. Frequently, she'll talk about how she can't wait to see him over the weekend. She has a picture of the two of them on the beach on her desk, her in a very tight fitting swimsuit with her big tits pressed up against him. He looks a bit uncomfortable. The man is 35, and she is in her 50s. She's been divorced from his father for decades and has hardly ever mentioned him. The son has never been married, but occasionally gets a girlfriend, which never fails to put his mother in a foul mood for months. She'll talk about nothing but what a bitch the girlfriend du jour is, and how she monopolizes all her son's time, and how bored and starved for attention she is. Then she'll gleefully announce that he's broken up with the girl and that she has her "baby" back. He sends her red roses on Valentines Day if he doesn't have a girlfriend at the time. Once he came to the office to deliver them to her. He kissed her on the lips, and she held the kiss longer than he seemed comfortable with. She pinched his ass as he left, and spent the rest of the day asking all the girls if they were jealous of her because her son was such a hunk, and didn't they wish they could have him? The whole thing is disgusting.
I mean, ice cream and Pepsi for breakfast.
Will he ever break into television or films? Is Queer As Folk the peak of his career. Looking at imdb, the projects he has can't be paying him much.
Does anyone still watch this mess?
Gay or not? Let's get a conclusion.
I'm puzzled by the common wisdom on the Internet that it was bad but forgivable for a character to push a child out a window of a high tower to kill him, and to kill his own cousin in cold blood... but yet rape is for some reason worse than all those things, and unforgivable. And that to show this rape was the show going too far, but showing cannibalism and torture and bloody murders (including a crossbow bolt shot into a head) is not a problem. I just don't get the incredible hysteria around rape in our culture right now. This is all tied with the "triggering" bullshit.
Disclaimer: I usually avoid using slurs of any kind, but for the sake of getting this point across, I'm abandoning that for this blog post. Please do not take offense. There's a conversation happening right now that's long overdue. With growing tensions between the LGB and T components of our community, we are doing little to bridge the gap -- quite the opposite in fact. Instead of binding together to respect one another's viewpoints and have a meaningful discussion about language in our culture, we're jumping on the defense every chance we get -- further hurting the historic bond we have. It has to stop. Gay men: Telling trans people to stop being so touchy and sensitive over language is wrong. For too long they've stood in the dark supporting you for your fight for marriage equality and protections under the law, while you make little attempt to understand their struggles. Why are you jumping to assume this is a new sensitivity or cry for attention? Why aren't you attempting to understand that MAYBE the trans community finally feels like it has enough clout in our society to speak up for themselves? Why are we trying to stifle that and treat them as if their opinions and feelings don't matter? Was there ever a time you walked by a group of straight dudes in high school, calling one another faggots and a little piece of you died inside? It doesn't matter to you that those guys take pleasure in using the word because to you -- it sucks. THAT's what it feels like to trans men and women when you throw around "tranny," like Rhianna's new single. You may use it as a term of endearment, but to others it hurts. And rather than get defensive over using it, maybe we should start exhibiting some compassion and understand how others are affected. Maybe you weren't negatively affected by the word "faggot." I'm happy for you, but there are people who have, so maybe take a moment to understand someone else's experience. Non-trans drag queens: You are not trans. You don't get to throw around hateful terms, either, even if you feel you're reclaiming the word. It's not yours to reclaim. There are women who get beaten by their boyfriends or random strangers, left for dead, where tranny is the last word they hear. It's not a word that represents frivolity and flamboyance or whatever you want it to mean. It's not a joke, and trans people aren't a spectacle. When someone tells you they're offended by your language, instead of jumping to defend your free speech, take a moment to educate yourself on why it means so much to this person that you change your behavior. It's time we start considering each other's stories before assuming our own experiences trump those of others. RuPaul is a poor representative of this ideal. It's one thing to take pride in a term that may hurt other people, but it's another to blatantly fight the understanding of and compassion for those who are negatively affected by it. Trans people: Please understand that there are cisgender gay men who are on your side, and please continue to have this dialogue. I understand you're frustrated, hurt, annoyed, angry, etc. on how you've been treated, and for me to ask patience of you is probably insensitive, but I do ask that you help us be better allies by calmly and eloquently continuing to call us out. Continue to let us know when our words, behaviors and micro-aggressions get to you, but please forgive those of us who make mistakes unknowingly as we work to change our language and understandings to reflect yours. Please don't assume all gay men are ignorant fools, and please -- no more rebuttals beginning with: "Easy for you, cisgender white men of privilege to say..." it doesn't promote healthy discussions either. Being an ally is a constant process of empathy and understanding, and trust me, we will make mistakes -- but it doesn't make us bad people. We have made tremendous strides as a community together. We often think of the Stonewall riots as a momentous time in gay activism, and in many ways it was, but we can't forget that it was a collaborative effort led by LGBT people across the board. People like Sylvia Rivera -- a trans bisexual woman, helped make this happen. In our alienation of our taboo lifestyles, we bound together and created a movement. What happened? At what point did we stop considering the contributions and experiences of others outside of our own? When did arrogance and defensiveness take over our inclination for empathy? Finding middle ground in a community as diverse, artistic, and expressionistic as ours is tough. BUT what we CAN do is respect one another and educate ourselves on how words affect us. It's high time compassion and authenticity and an attempt to understand one another be our goals in this fight for equality. Who knows? Maybe it could be the beginnings of a real revolution.

What a whirlwind couple of weeks for our heroes Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, who are steadfastly determined to remain not pregnant and not a couple, despite all the hard evidence presented by the brain trust at HKN's Haven. Sure, RPattz was seen at Coachella with Katy Perry while KStew was drinking Coors Light and smoking a bowl in a NOLA park, but like the brain trust says, beer and pot are just super great for fetuses, and KStew [italic]was[/italic] at Coachella but had magical powers that prevented cameras from taking photos within a 100-yard radius. Or something. Now that our delightful duo are headed to Cannes, the Havenettes are sure this is a sign from D-list Celebrity Heaven that the pair were meant to be together forever. Oh, and there's still little Burrito Sweetpea Pattinson on the way, sometime in April. Or May. Maybe June. Possibly July. How long do humans gestate, again? Join in as we discuss KStew and RPattz, the Havenettes, and their completely and totally sane behavior.

Have you ever found something while passively creeping on the internet that you wish you hadn't found, like some random chick's Instagram account featuring said random chick making out with your friend's fiancee. Your dad's Match.com profile. The face of the guy who broke up with you because he just "wasn't interested in seeing anyone right now" on Tinder. Your therapist's Twitter account. Your boss's N*Sync fanfic Livejournal. Tell us what you found, and what — if anything — you did about it.

No, this isn't a cause and effect thing, I KNOW one didn't cause the other, just a funny story. I've never been able to really get a lot of cock down before, but this new guy I'm with is larger than anyone else I've been with. I don't know why, but I am able to get him pretty far in, I'm guessing it may be related to the fact that the largest part is now past my gag reflex? Or maybe your gag reflex gets weaker with age (I'm 37)? Who knows. I was still very proud of myself. Anyway - that was this past weekend. And Monday, and Tuesday. Wednesday I start to feel kinda sick, throat sore, etc. Thursday I wake up with a fever, a really painful sore throat/neck, and those disgusting white bumps in my throat. My primary dr's right by my office, so I went by, just to make sure it wasn't strep. His first question to me was "what were you doing this past weekend?" I stammered something about not getting a lot of sleep, and he went on to tell me it's not strep (he'd done one of those quick culture thingys), just a bad infection and a fever, and to take it easy for a few days. No work today, no leaving the house for 48 hours. I think the whole thing is hysterical, and also comically embarrassing. So...embarrassing blow job stories/after effects? Share, I'm stuck at home sick and bored.

It seems to happen with many gay men. A guy I used to work with now has several photos of himself being all cozy with a girl. His mother posted a comment on one saying how "proud" she is of him, presumably for turning straight. Then there's the famous case of DL favorite Anthony Perkins, who was famously turned straight by Victoria Principal. What explains this phenomenon? Is pussy magic?
This show is going for ATL-style ratchet. Radziwill WROTE her book. She spent 3 decades writing copy for ABC News. There is no question she can string a few words together on her own. Aviva's stupid-ass has never done anything except birth some babies and have anxiety attacks. Any nitwit knows the difference between a ghostwriter and an editor or proofreader. That bitch was on TV slandering Radziwill, telling folks that after 30 years of being a professional writer she used a ghostwriter to write a f*cking MEMOIR (??!!) If I were Princess Carole -- and not obviously suffering the effects of anorexic wasting disease -- I would have sailed across that sofa onto Aviva and beat her ass so hard and savagely that her prosthetic leg would have been the only evidence that she ever existed. Aviva IS a fucking psycho! The show has gone completely beyond the pale. I can't wait for Heather the stomp the sh*t out of Aviva's freaky sycophant, Elphaba or whatever.
Say you live in the heartland. And you want to throw a festive, fancy party to celebrate your nuptials. And say you met with an event planner at your house to see whether they were a good match for this project. And say they came back with a bid of $29,000 flat-fee all inclusive for a 4-hour heavy appetizers, open bar party for approx. 70 people. Would that be an outrageous amount, or in the ballpark of 'reasonable'? Anyone??

Researchers at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research, led by Associate Professor Dr. David Harrich, say they have developed a form of gene therapy that turns the HIV protein against itself and ultimately stops it from replicating, according to the Australian Times. Harrich himself notes that his research is not an HIV cure. "You would still be infected with HIV," he said, according to the Queensland Institute's statement. "But the virus would stay latent, it wouldn't wake up, so it wouldn't develop into AIDS. With a treatment like this, you would maintain a healthy immune system."
Dustin was set to deliver the commencement address at his Alma mater Pasadena City College. But the offer has now been withdrawn, citing concerns about his sex life. Board President Anthony Fellow said. “We’ll be on the radio and on television. We just don’t want to give PCC (Pasadena City College) a bad name.” For his part Black has written an open letter (regarding his sex life and the photos that were leaked) which in part reads "old images from a far simpler time in my life, a time before digital camera phones and Internet scandals. They were photos of me with a man I cared for, a man who shared my Mormon background, and who was also struggling with who he was versus where he came from. And yes, we were doing what gay men do when they love and trust each other, we were having sex." Read the full letter below

Lupita Nyong’o has been chosen as the prestigious cover girl for People‘s Most Beautiful issue! Here’s what the 12 Years a Slave Oscar winner had to share with the mag: On being named People‘s Most Beautiful: “It was exciting and just a major, major compliment. I was happy for all the girls who would see me on it and feel a little more seen.” On what she used to think ideal beauty was: “Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair. Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess.” On her favorite thing: “When I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on. And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress. Happiness is the most important thing.” Also making People’s Most Beautiful list are Keri Russel, Jenna Dewan, Mindy Kaling, Pink, Amber Heard, Gabrielle Union, Molly Sims, Stacy Keibler, and Kerry Washington.
The actress says she has tax and credit card debts totaling more than $1 million, most of which is owed to the Internal Revenue Service. She is being sued by her landlord for $30,000 after she allegedly moved out of a rental apartment in Los Angeles. She has worked consistently, how can she be broke?
Why was she stuck playing that same cliched uppity old bitch role from then on? Why didn't she play any trully meaty roles like her bestie Judi Dench did (Notes on the Scandal, Philomena, Mrs Henderson Presents...). It's sad that most younger people know her only as that actress from the Harry Potter movies.

Lindsay Lohan has just been dropping bombs for the past weeks. With her own docu-series coming to a halt, the troubled actress has made it a point to drop rather nonchalantly explosive revelations about her never ending personal struggles. The "Mean Girls" star emerged sad and weak after her "sex list" surfaced for everyone to see. During an interview on her own documentary, the troubled actress said that the sex list was "not only humiliating but was also just mean." Now, Lindsay Lohan is back for more controversies as the latest publicity act of the actress includes dissing none other than America's sweetheart Jennifer Lawrence. During an interview with Kode Magazine, which the "Herbie" actress is also cover girl, the 27-year old did not fail to generate public drama when she accused American Sweetheart of derogatory terms. The article says: "...She saunters off into the opposite side of the room as the conversation then moves to America's current sweetheart, Jennifer Lawrence. Her feeling towards her infamous stumble at the ceremony's red carpet is pretty evident. "She's so fake and I'm sorry I'm not going to fuck for roles." It is clear from the article that Lindsay Lohan accused the "Hunger Games" star of sleeping around to snag popular roles in movies. While such statements might have been said out of angst or envy, the likelihood of Jennifer Lawrence sleeping around is just slim. For one, the American sweetheart has a stable relationship with "Warm Bodies" actor Nicolas Hoult. Secondly, the 23-year old actress has already won an Oscar for her well-received portrayal of a mentally unstable girl in "Silver Linings Playbook." Is Lindsay Lohan trying to drag in Jennifer Lawrence's name to generate publicity for herself? It could be the case that Lohan is trying to drag in one of America's most popular faces into controversy to generate publicity for herself. After all, the former child star has been dropping bombs all over the media to possibly up the ante for her low-rating docu-series. Looks like Lindsay is succeeding in generating publicity for herself albeit at a negative kind of fame.

The New York Police Department attempted to harness Twitter to drum up support today, but things haven't exactly gone as planned. Earlier today, the official NYPD Twitter account asked followers to tweet photos of themselves with NYC police officers under the hashtag #myNYPD — but so far, many users have jumped on that hashtag to flood it with images of police aggressively apprehending apparent suspects. So far, these are hardly the friendly images the NYPD was hoping for.

Hello LA DLers, my boyfriend and I are headed to LA this weeekend for a friend's wedding. We are staying in West Hollywood at the Andaz hotel. We arrive early afternoon on Saturday and have dinner reservations at Sur and then planning on going to Saturday Night Slut, Jonny McGovern's party. Sunday it's just walking around and seeing sights. I am guessing most places will be closed for Easter. Monday is the wedding and we are headed back on Tuesday. Is there anything we should definitely plan on doing? Sunday will be entirely ours. You have an good ideas for brunch?

I was diagnosed with major depression a few years ago and prescribed Prozac. It's been wonderful, aside from a reduced libido. My partner is convinced I don't need it, and that I just need to exercise and "learn to control my emotions." I've attempted to go off the meds a couple of times to appease him, but that just results in my not being able to get out of bed because of the depression. My boyfriend takes this as evidence that I'm "addicted" and goes on to rail against the evils of the pharmaceutical industry. This relationship is doomed, isn't it?

Nasty, incompetent, straight writer Jo Becker gets all her facts wrong, tries to pretend that gays didn't start thinking about marriage until 2008, and basically writes a book that's a script for a Hollywood fantasy, not a history of an important movement in civil rights. What does her publisher do? Stand by her and pretend nothing's wrong.

Appearing on CNN, the investigative correspondent also described a CBS News culture where "ideologically entrenched" managers were hesitant to portray the Obama administration negatively. Sharyl Attkisson leveled strong, but carefully worded, criticism on Sunday against her former employer CBS News, describing a pattern where stories that painted the Obama administration or corporate interests in an unflattering way faced resistance at the network. "It did get to the point were there was not a lot left for me to do," Attkisson reiterated about her employment during an interview with Brian Stelter on CNN's Reliable Sources. The investigative reporter alleged a culture among some sectors at CBS News that was hesitant toward airing a story critical of the government and singled out "the producers that decide what gets on a program during a given day." She also noted that in the past several years stories that were favorable to the Obama administration were likelier to be embraced by CBS News producers. "We had an almost total change in management in the time after Katie Couric left, the top managers who were very into the stories of government waste and government oversight all of them left at one time," she said. "It's fairly well-discussed inside CBS News that there are some managers recently who've been so ideologically entrenched that there's a feeling and a discussion that some of them -- certainly not all of them -- have a difficult time viewing a story that may reflect negatively upon government or the administration as a story of value," Attkisson said. Attkisson announced her resignation from CBS News on March 10, ending a career with the network that spanned over two decades. As an investigative correspondent at CBS, she reported aggressively on the Fast and Furious gun-smuggling scandal and the aftermath of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya. She was nominated for a 2013 Emmy in the investigative journalism in a newscast category for her work on a report titled "Libya: Dying for Security." Attkisson has been critical of CBS since her departure, expressing similar displeasure in an interview with Howard Kurtz during his Fox News media show on April 13. "There seems to be a visceral reaction to doing stories that could ruffle feathers, whether it is certain people in the political spectrum or even corporate interests," she told Kurtz. "I think there has come to be a narrowing universe of stories that are desired by the broadcasts, and it leaves us sometimes I think with newscasts that don't dig very deep."

First thread is full.
Another thread got me thinking. Seems every time we bring any of the current crop up (Jonas Bros, Miley, etc) there''s something sordid going on. What secrets has Disney tried/is trying to cover up for the sake of a clean cut image?
Always with the work. You go to your jobs so early and you barely take time for a proper lunch, and then you work so late into the evening. It's madness! In the mañana culture, we go to work at 9am, but it is not such a hard and fast rule. Then we take a proper lunch at noon, followed by siesta. Many shops close during this time. Most people go home for the day between 4-5pm. Why do you Americans work yourselves to death? I don't understand.
General bs thread and also continuation of the Louis football thread. They are all in their 20's now, they must be growing tired of this schtick... how long until the collapse begins?

Okay granted I am not from the south but is it typical for late forties and early fifties men to social friends with 20-30 somethings? Case #1 Thomas Ravenel who is 51 years old, been indicted for selling cocaine and forced to step down as state treasurer now wants to run for congress as a "Libertarian"." Episode two showed a picture of his father with a very large confederate flag draped across the steps of the state capitol. Racist much? Case #2 Whitney Sudler Smith - 41 year old "film maker" who lives with his mother. The rest of the cast seem in the late 20's to early 30's. Thomas seems to think he is quite the stud man about town....given he is handsome and rich he is also racist and vile.

Mr. Harris is in full command of who he is and, most excitingly, what he has become with this performance. That’s a bona fide Broadway star, the kind who can rule an audience with the blink of a sequined eyelid. With this show, Mr. Harris joins an elite club of musical-comedy male supernovas that has exactly one other member these days, Hugh Jackman.
I want to retroactively go there.
These threads are where we at DL really excel. The conspiracy theories; the dark humor; the crying as we type.
In the suit, Egan claims the abuse started when he was 14 or 15 and moved to Los Angeles with his family to start his acting career. It was in LA that he was introduced to another Hollywood powerplayer, Marc Collins-Rector and his lover Chad Shackley, he claims. Egan was invited to one of Collins-Rector's 'notorious' parties held at his home, dubbed the M&C Estate in Encino, California. According to the suit, the parties were well-known in Hollywood and attended by investors in Collin-Rector's company who lured young boys as part of a 'sordid sex ring'. Collins-Rector eventually faced justice himself, admitting in court in 2004 that he lured five minors across state lines for sexual purposes. While these parties allegedly 'featured sexual contact between adult males and the many teenage boys', Egan maintains he 'never freely' consented to the advances. It was two or three months after Collins-Rector began allegedly abusing Egan that he was introduced to Singer at one of the parties. Egan was in the pool when Collins-Rector approached him and ordered him out to hug Singer. Egan was nude, as per the rules of the house pool, so when he hugged Singer the director allegedly 'grabbed his bare buttocks'. Egan claims the three then went to a jacuzzi where he was ordered to sit on Collins-Rector's lap before being passed off to Singer.

I have only recently started watching men and women broadcast sexual activity on these sites. You can watch for free. Often I end up seeing some incredible stuff. What surprises me is the casualness. Most are clearly identifiable and leave nothing to the imagination.Some broadcasts are very intimate and personal. Anyone can capture these images. Many young college age men are on there. This stuff never goes away and can haunt you 20 years from now. Please explain
Too much plastic surgery? Reconstruction after an accident? It looks weird.
I was reading an old Rolling Stone at my parents' house, with a fascinating article about a cheerleader named Kirsten Costas who was stabbed to death by another girl, who was panicked that Costas might mock her at school the next day. It sounded like the other girl had been trying to break the ice with Costas (or possibly confess feelings) and freaked out when it went wrong. It was a really well written article and made me wonder if the writer of "Heathers" drew inspiration from the case. (All of Costas' friends seem to have been named Stacy and Costas herself seemed like a Heather. A friend is quoted in the article saying "She was only mean to people that she didn't like.") Anyone remember this case?
The victim's funeral is today & I just can't stop thinking about how disturbing this thing is...

The Avengers movies have a mostly white male cast. All straight, apparently. Wouldn't it be awesome to introduce Captain Marvel (the former Ms Marvel) into that universe, as an amalgam of the Mar-Vell, Monica Rambeau and Carol Danvers versions? Half Kree, and aware of it, but not too different from us until Nick Fury gives her the Nega Bands that give her powers. They're keyed to her unique genes, but when she has them she has her cosmic comic powers- flight, semi-invulnerable, strength and power blasts- plus a link to the Kree. "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" could have her on the team. Hell, she should be named Monica Danvers Mar-Vell, just to give a nod to all three characters. I would watch a documentary on saving albino snakes in Burma if Lupita was the star- she is a true star. Marvel should lock her into a 6 picture deal NOW, and bring a real super powered black woman into the MCU.
They were both stars at MGM at same-even appeared the same movie" Ziegfeld Girl"-did they get along? Were they in classes together?
ruh-roh Tom Daley's Hollywood screenwriter boyfriend is to be called as a character witness in the sex abuse trial of X-Men director Bryan Singer. Dustin Lance Black, 39, whose relationship with the 19-year-old Olympic diver was made public in December, is expected to be named as a witness in lawsuit filed against Singer in the U.S. The director has been accused of hosting depraved sex parties and raping teenage boys by Michael Egan, 31, who says he was one of Singer's victims when he was 15.

How do you get rid of anger? I'm so angry at a family situation, I swear I'm seeing red. I want to get pass the anger - I'll never forgive them, but need help letting the anger go.

[quote]When he’s working in New York, he shares his apartment downtown with his personal assistant, Spencer Soloman, a 38-year-old former dancer and camera man, who became close with Radcliffe’s family when he was teaching the actor to dance for “How to Succeed.” Soloman and Sam [i.e. his hunky bodyguard, pictured at link] function, in some ways, like older brothers: fun, but responsible and organized. Soloman plans Radcliffe’s schedule and talks to his father, agents and publicists two or three times a day; he might tell Radcliffe when he needs to shave for a photo shoot or search their apartment for a garment that his stylist wants him to wear for some occasion.
Holy shit. She looks ... good, actually.
Movie is causing controversy. Many religious are coming out against it. I've not seen it, but it seems that the kid was just parroting stuff fed to him by dad and it is seen as a ploy to make daddy a rich celebrity preacher.
maxi pads were for women with big cunts and mini pads were for women with small cunts. I always felt bad for women with medium sized cunts and thought they needed a voice.
Looks like Logan/Wolferine travels to Japan this time and squares off against Viper and The Silver Samurai! Should be exciting! Oh...and a Jean Gray cameo, too.
Do you have billions of these fuckers in your gardens/flower beds? I've been inundated with them for 3 or 4 years now and I cannot get rid of them. Nothing kills them. I even have guinea fowl and they won't eat the fuckers. They are called sowbugs and when you look them up online, they are invariably called beneficial to gardens and articles will tell you that they eat dead, decaying plant life and "only rarely" eat live plants. They eat every fucking live plant in my garden. I did not ever see them in my garden until I allowed a landscaper to put down his own mulch instead of the mulch I usually bought in bags from the store. It was easier for him to pick up a trunkful of the stuff and put it in my flower beds than opening bags. Have you been able to do anything to cut the population of these pests? They are not roly-polies, BTW. These bugs do not roll into a ball.
On the heels of a civil lawsuit alleging that director Bryan Singer sexually abused a 17-year-old boy, and attempted to appease him with the promise of acting roles in his films that never materialized, Kirsten Dunst had some timely thoughts on the casting couch. In an interview with W Magazine guest editor Sofia Coppola, Dunst said she doesn't have much sympathy for actors who find themselves the victims of lecherous bigwigs looking to trade sex for roles. When Coppola asked the 31-year-old actress if a director had ever "pounced" on her while working together, she laughed off the idea. "I don't give off that vibe," she said. “I think that you court that stuff, and to me it’s crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in your working relationship." Perhaps Dunst should tell that to Susan Sarandon, Gwyneth Paltrow and Charlize Theron -- all of whom have gone on record with unfortunate stories of being pressured to have sex in order to advance their careers. Dunst is on a roll lately, having made controversial statements earlier this month about gender norms. "I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued. We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking -- it’s a valuable thing my mom created," Dunst told Harper's Bazaar U.K. "And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work."
It looks like the other thread is closed so I thought I would start up another on. I think this place can be hot sometimes (especially at lunchtime). They have a downstairs area that you can do whatever you want and I have been there and had fun with some super hot dudes. Looking to know if there are any other times when this place (xpressions on 53rd) is crowded - weekends? late night?

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s marriage isn’t the only area of her life that’s in shambles. Just days after the CEO of her lifestyle company, GOOP, announced his unexpected departure, RadarOnline.com has uncovered disturbing corporate filings that reveal the company’s dire financial state: For two years running, they racked up serious losses totaling more than $300,000 — thanks in part to an interest-free loan Paltrow took from the company coffers! According to the most recent corporate documentation filed with the Companies House in the U.K., in 2011, GOOP “incurred a loss of $255,312 (£152,060) and had a net liabilities of $259,969 (£154,834).” And in 2012, they reported “a loss of $39,823 (£23,718) and … net liabilities of $298,512 (£177,788).” It’s not that GOOP wasn’t making money. In fact, in 2012, they raked in more than $1.5 million (£908,378), thanks in part to $463,486 (£276,040) in product sales, as well as an impressive (£222,243) from Groupon promotions and $373,159 in commissions. All told, the company made $1,893,065 (£1,127,456). But that same year, GOOP spent $98,150 (£58,456) on Goop.com, $79,961 (£47,623) on the notorious GOOP newsletter, $189,590 (£112,918) on product costs, and a whopping $1,564,995 (£932,096) in administrative expenses,” adding up to the grand profit total of a loss of $39,823 (£23,718). Chief among those “administrative expenses” were Paltrow and CEO Sebastian Bishop’s “renumeration,” or salaries, for which the company allotted $587,653.25 (£350,000), a sizable increase from the previous year’s figure of $172,585 (£102,788), despite the company’s losses. The documents also show that in 2012, both Paltrow and Bishop were the recipient of interest-free “loans to directors,” with Paltrow’s listed at a balance of $49,025 (£29,200), of which none was paid back, and Bishop’s at $83,617 (£49,800). Other expenses in 2012 included $456,007 (£271,584) in other wages, $34,507 (£20,551) on travel, nearly $4,000 (£2,118) on “Entertaining,” and nearly $5,000 (£2,951) on “Staff Entertainment.” All told, the expenses swallowed up the entire $1.8 million profit for the year and then some, resulting in a loss of $39,823. Paltrow and Bishop’s report had an excuse, insisting, “As the company started product sales in June 2012, the directors are of the opinion that predicted profits will provide sufficient resources to enable the company to continue trading for the foreseeable future.” The continued existence of GOOP, it seems, would depend upon it, since the report noted that in addition to the losses, the company owed creditors more than $1.2 million (£722,111), all of which would come due by the end of 2013.
I love onion dip. Can I make tubs of it and eat it with beef jerkey and pork rinds instead of chips? Will that make me skinny?
...I just got out of the hospital yesterday evening. I started the Atkins Diet on Sunday and was doing induction - on Monday night/Tuesday morning I woke up *terribly* sick and continued vomiting at intervals of every 2 hours. When the frequency increased to every hour (and I was just throwing up water and bile) I went to my doctor, who advised me to go to the ER for some IV fluids and some intravenous Zofran to stop the vomiting. Once at the ER, the doctors ran some blood tests and found that I was in a severe state of ketoacidosis - the acid level of my blood had become dangerously high. This is similar to what happens to diabetics when they don't take their insulin. If I hadn't gone to the doctor when I did, I might've gone into a diabetic coma (even though I am *not* diabetic). The doctors believe this was purely a complication of the Atkins Diet and have advised me *never* to try it again, as it could be fatal for me. I'm an otherwise healthy, normal person, 34 years old. I've never had any major health problems before. I'm not overweight - I just wanted a more streamlined look, and I've known a lot of people who've supposedly done Atkins. Anyway, this diet scares the shit out of me. I just wanted to put my experience out there, so people are aware that serious complications can arise. Barely 36 hours on this shit almost killed me.
How long can any relationship that begins at the G-Lounge last? The old guy is gross (and I say this as a fellow Eldergay). "'I could never do that,' is usually the first thing a bystander will state when he finds out someone is in a three-person or more relationship. But why do some people seem to thrive in such an arrangement? Franco DiLuzio and Mark Lander met while working at G-Lounge, a club in the in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood. Five years later, they were married. But two months after their wedding, everything changed for the happily married couple. After a few chats online via a male dating site, Franco met Vinny Vega, a 24-year-old fashion photography student at the Fashion Institute of Technology. What went from a casual hook up turned into a serious, closed polyamorous relationship. Franco, Mark, and Vinny have been together for two years. “I talk about my boyfriends proudly," Vega explains. "I know it’s hard for people to accept. I don’t really care if people accept me or not." There's an age gap within their relationship: DiLuzio is 45, Lander is 41, and at 24, Vinny is the youngest. As the men explain candidly, this age difference creates different dynamics between the three of them. “My relationship with Mark is lover and husband. And my relationship with Vinny is lover and son—even though there’s a sexual aspect to it,” DiLuzio says. “I think the type of nurturing we both give to Vinny is more of a parental kind of guideline, as well as a boyfriend guideline.” While this relationship works for the three of them, there have been critics along the way. Lander admits that most people have a negative opinion about them. “I find that gay men have the most problem with it. Whereas my straight friends look at it and say, ‘oh, there’s three of you now!’ And the gay friends were more wanting to have that traditional guideline,” DiLuzio says, explaining that their gay friends often looked up to his relationship with Lander as an example of a strong, monogamous relationship. But for DiLuzio, he doesn’t think that Vega was brought into his relationship with Lander because something was missing. “I still believe that Mark and I have a strong relationship. And bringing Vinny in was an addition to the relationship,” DiLuzio says. Even though they’ve only been together for two years, Vega feels he can see himself together with DiLuzio and Lander for the next 20. “I don’t think I can ever leave because I am very much in love with Franco and Mark," Vega says. "I feel like they are the two pieces of my heart.”
Is Christina a secret Datalounger? [quote]The gorgeous actress also spoke about her upcoming 39th birthday as she admitted: 'I think I'm going to end up working on my birthday, which is fine. To be working on your birthday is a gift.' She added: 'I had wanted to go to Palm Springs with my friends and have a kaftans and casserole party.' When Jimmy asked what that meant, she explained: 'My friend knows how much I love a kaftan. It's what I wear at home all the time, it's my go to thing... and then we just eat casseroles.'
Apparently, the finale is this Monday but, the show just started up again at the end of February. WTF, a 7 episode season?

[quote]I started having pain in the testicles, i figured i sat down to fast and injured myself, upon doing the self-exam i noticed a lump. I went to my primary care doctor, the medical assistant wanted to know the exact reason, I told her "non specific male issues" she did not like this. Once the doctor finally checked he ordered a STAT testicular ultrasound. I called to book the test, i was told my techs name, she was obviously female, i asked for a male tech, i was denied as they didnt employee male ultrasound techs, I refused to be exposed infront of any females. [quote]Once I was out of surgery in post op i remember the female nurse trying to lift the blankets to place an ice pack on my groin instinctively i hit the blanket down and said NO (the first time i spoke since waking up) The doctor came over and told the nurse as he placed it from the other side. Not to expose the patient and if anything was needed that they were to call him to do it. I got dressed and moved to the discharge nurse, due to the type of surgery i was required to urinate prior to discharge, after being hounded, I finally had the urge, when i got up to go into the bathrom the female nurse tried to follow me into the bathroom, my brother (he is a BIG boy) kind of pushed his way in behind me this nurse was MAD she was huffing and puffing her attitude, and slammed the door shut. She looked back towards my bay where my mother was sitting watching the nurses behavior. the nurse was mumbling giving my mom dirty looks. I always get told "its just another body part its no big deal to us" but not one nurse can explain to me that if it is not a big deal to see it, why is it a big deal NOT to see it ? Email me if you guys have any questions so it can be posted I do want to share my story so others know they CAN stand up for themselves !

Who are the actresses and actors (and directors and writers) who fucked themselves the worst, and lost the potential of great careers over a long period of time? Aside from the obvious picks of psychological messes such as Marilyn, and Montgomery Clift (who didn't do too bad even if they were self-destructive), who could have been better or bigger but threw it all away? I think Mickey Rourke had a lot more going for him than he ever managed to make happen. He killed it. KZJ may have picked up an underserved Oscar for reasons beyond my comprehension, but her combined mental and substance issues really screwed what could have been a wonderful career. Just go back to her big break in ZORRO and see how great she could have been. Bening fucked herself with that marriage. What was she thinking. THE GRIFTERS alone is evidence enough of someone who should have had a huge career, not just one that has always felt like "almost" and "yeah, but." AMERICAN BEAUTY should have had a series of similar accomplishments. Some people might include Winona Ryder here, but I think she's an example of someone who did well for no reason associated with talent. Inept at every turn. Her klepto mess was just the public piece of a great disorder that spared us even more bad performances, right? Glenda Jackson is a special case - she hit the top of her niche and stayed there a while, and then walked away. A rational career destruction.
I loved it, will def. be watching the whole season. Anyone else watch?

“Ever since Bryan Singer first talked to me about shooting the first one in Toronto back in 1999, I’ve been on side. Why? He explained to me that the three largest audience groups for the X-Men comics are young blacks, young gays and young Jews. “They are people who’ve been made to feel like mutants by society, so of course they can all relate with the plight of the mutants in the story. At its most profound, basic level, it’s a movie about civil rights.”

Back in the 1980s,there was a BBC tv programme called The Kenny Everett Show. Kenny Everett was a comedian and he used to have various characters he''d do, Sid Snot – a punk rocker, Tinsel-Man - an effeminate superhero, Cupid Stunt - an American sex-kitten and others.\ \ Kenny Everett had started out as as a presenter on BBC radio in the early sixties. He then went on to work as a pirate radio deejay where he became immensely popular.\ \ He married the singer Lee ''Lady Lee'' Middleton in 1966. By 1979 they had separated, and Everett came out as gay. He launched himself into the London gay club scene, and could often be seen in London club Heaven in the 1980s (then a very popular clubbing destination) on Saturday nights.\ \ Everett had been told in 1989 that he had HIV. It is believed he caught it from Freddie Mercury''s partner, with whom he''d also had a relationship. He died from an AIDS-related illness, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London, on 4 April 1995, aged 50.\ \ Clips of his show at link.

Starting from season one, and God, it is bloody awful! Big hair, bad acting. Yikes. Don't understand how it managed not to get canceled, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it more when Heather Locklear shows up.

Al Roker's "Wake Up With Al," at 5:30 a.m., had 70K in the demo...nearly TWICE Champion's audience. Or, to put it another way, nearly half of Roker's demo audience leaves when Sammy shows up.

You already know him as one of the most powerful men in Hollywood. You may or may not know that he is gay. But what you probably don’t know is that he uses his money and his power to maintain a harem of boys. We’ll call him Duffy. He keeps between five and eight boys at a time. All of his boys are over 21. While some men prefer twinks, Duffy prefers studs. Great-looking, hard-bodied young studs. The Duffy Boys are a multi-ethnic bunch. Black, white, hispanic, mixed. All really handsome. If one of them walked past you on the street, you would definitely turn your head. He pays each of the Duffy Boys approximately $5000 a month. He also buys each of them a luxury car of their choice (usually a Mercedes or a BMW). Duffy owns fabulous homes and toys, is a respected power player in films, music, art, politics, and philanthropy, and knows absolutely everyone, so there are lots of other perqs for the Duffy Boys as well… especially if they are trying to make it in Hollywood. We know of at least one famous actor who started out as a Duffy Boy. Duffy calls them in “to work” on a regular basis. “Work” always takes place at his house, where he feels safe. He loves to give oral sex to them, and he likes being a “bottom.” But his very favorite thing to do is to call in all the Duffy Boys to work at once… and watch them have group sex with each other. A job as a Duffy Boy only lasts for a couple of years. Since they are over 21 to begin with, it usually only takes two or three years before they start aging out of the Duffy Boy system. If they have done their job well, they are set up with a job in the entertainment industry. They get a generous severance package. They get to keep the luxury car.
Recently I've been getting more error messages from Chrome when I try to connect to webpages. Usually they are certificate errors and I know how to get around some of them (like for images on Twitter) but tonight I got one that wouldn't even let me connect to a Google search! I'm not using wireless so that isn't the issue.
My FB page is blowing up with people who are ecstatic about them being on tour this summer. I'll be honest, I've only heard their radio singles but they are just so middle of the road and kind of lame.

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000′ Reboot May Come Online in Not-Too-Distant Future APRIL 22, 2014 | 06:07PM PT; Maane Khatchatourian On the heels of the 25th anniversary of its premiere, the cult comedy series “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ may be rebooted in the not-too-distant future. Show creator-writer-producer Joel Hodgson, who hosted the sci-fi series from 1988–1993, told Wired that he plans to revive the show online this spring. “MST3K” was cancelled in 1999 after 11 years on the air. Comedy Central dropped the show in its seventh season and the Sci-Fi Channel picked it up after audiences fought to keep the series alive. “I’ve talked to a bunch of fans about their lives and what ‘MST3K’ means to them,” Hodgson told the magazine. “I’m overwhelmed by how people took to that show. It really affected them. I thought, if enough people still love it, maybe we can bring it back.” The resurrected web show will feature a new host and cameos from “MST3K” alumni. “Even avid viewers sometimes don’t realize that every major role in the show had been swapped out over time,” he said. “So in my mind, the show is built to be refreshed with new people and new ideas. It’s like Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle as it applies to ‘MST3K’: If it doesn’t change, it’s not the same show. And fortunately for us, as long as there are movies, there are always going to be cheesy movies.” The “MST3K” team “reunited” earlier this month to bring the “RiffTrax” show to the National Geographic Channel. “Total Riff Off,” a three-hour April Fool’s special, found the gang overdubbing nature shows that included “Honey Badgers,” “Unlikely Animal Friends” and “Swamp Men.”

Certainly one of the more unexpected properties to serve as the basis for a narrative feature, Deadline reports that Just Born, Incorporated's marshmallow Peeps are being targeted for the big screen. Underdog scribe Adam Rifkin has secured the rights to the sugary treats and will be providing the screenplay. The Peeps movie is planned to take place on the eve of the annual Peeps diorama contest. The heroic lead Peep will have to journey through various other dioramas (and their respective fantasy environments) to return to its rightful home. Likened to The LEGO Movie, the Peeps film hopes to also make use of other intellectual property characters, although none have as of yet been revealed. Originally created in 1952, Peeps have become a mainstay of Easter baskets and are now available in a number of different flavors and varieties.
7-1/2 minutes of movie, alternating with 3-1/2 minutes of commercials. Never again!
Any overlap with the Singer case?
Wow! The man looks good for 63. (Although the whole being an idiot thing sort of detracts from the package.)
Is this the "god bless you" troll in new form, or someone completely new? Either way, DL seems to be attracting more and more unhinged people, be them obsessed fans or single-issue obsessed social issue types.
I saw some things in there that I would like to have but I'm not spending $ 600. on a belt even if it is crocodile. Similarly, much of what I see these days that is promoted is both ridiculous looking & so overpriced. When I was in there though, there were plenty of people willing to lay out 5K for a suit, $ 800. shirts etc Would you spend that kind of money for clothes ?

I was reading this on Jezebel and it's hard to tell whether o = We have never figured this out. And now, the three living witnesses have to be good and fucking druuuunk to discuss the whole thing. I was 7, my brother 10, my mom in her early 40s, my grandmother (her mom) in her 60′s. So we were all cogent. No one was too young or too senile to not recall this nonsense. Yet, still no bloody answer. Grandma lived on an isolated country road in NC that was named after her family since they were the only crazy fuckers who lived on the land for about 1000 acres. And I *do* mean crazy. We have stories about relatives that start with, “You remember that time Uncle Bob was in the ditch with a shotgun?” “WHICH TIME?!” Her house had been empty for several weeks while she’d been visiting us in Florida, but we were all back, spending the weekend with her before trekking back to the Sunshine state. The house is in the foreal country, literally over train-tracks, past a salvage yard and her nearest neighbor (a cousin — everyone is related to everyone who owns a house on the road) ain’t within screamin’ distance. Yes, that seems to be a real system of measurement — “screaming distance.” It’s early in the AM, like just before daybreak. We’re awake because these are farm freaks who wake at the crack of dawn from sheer ingrained habit. We’re eating cereal when we hear someone pull up outside. Curious, we all run to the big picture window that looks onto the front yard. There is a strange truck there. No one seems to be behind the wheel, though the engine is idling. The truck is… well, old, for one thing. It’s old-timey like from maybe the 1930′s? You could picture the Joad Family heading to California in this thing. It’s rusted but it was probably once painted blue. We stare at the thing, bewildered. Mom asks grandma if she knows who that is. Nope, not a clue, says grandma. She runs to get the phone to call her cousin and ask him to come up — she thinks maybe it’s a hired hand and he’s just at the wrong farm. Just as she asks him to come on down, the phone goes dead. Well. That’s unsettling. All at once, there is a loud, insistent banging on the front door. We all scream. My grandma, who is terrifyingly resourceful, huddles us all into the living room, away from a window where anyone can see us. Then, while mom, me and my brother tremble there on the couch, she grabs a serrated bread knife from the kitchen and cautiously approaches the front door. She peeks out a side window, very stealthily. She turns back to us and looks confused. She shakes her head, like, “No one is there.” We all kind of breathe easier. Then EVERY goddamn door in the house is banging — relentlessly. I can still hear it. Rhythmic and terrifying, like all the doors are about to splinter and crack. There were two doors in the basement beneath us, so the sound is also a reverberation at our feet. The three ground-floor doors are shaking — we can see them trembling and jerking on their hinges from our vantage point on the couch. Finally, mom runs to the window — either from a psychotic break with reality or terror, I have no clue. She cries, “Oh thank Christ — Cousin is here!” We run to her and peek out the picture window — there is no one that we can see in the yard, but we can’t see all the doors from our viewpoint. Cousin walks by truck with a shotgun in his hand. Cousin, it should be noted, has pretty much every gun ever made. He looks puzzled, looking at the rear of the truck, then he glances in the cab window and he stops. He goes pale, runs a hand down his face. Then he RUNS towards to house, towards us. My grandmother flings open the kitchen door as she sees him coming. He shouts, “Everyone get behind the couch! Get DOWN!” He runs past us as we bolt for the couch. The banging starts AGAIN, all the doors and now we can hear the windows rattle. It’s like a tornado or the end of the world. We are too scared to even scream. Cousin flings open the front door and fires the huge shotgun, once, BANG, deafening. As he does, the truck roars into life and it sounds lik
New movie written by Joss Whedon released online today for $5. It's really good. I do like Whedon but the big draw for me was Michael Stahl David. And I do have an affinity for sci-fi/romances.

Wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin: I’m absolutely for same-sex marriage 22nd April 2014, 9:52 PM, Nick Duffy Wrestling legend Stone Cold Steve Austin has proclaimed his strong support for same-sex marriage. The wrestler, real name Steven James Anderson, 49, said on his podcast, recorded last year: “I’ve got some damned good friends that are gay and I’m absolutely for same-sex marriage. “I don’t give a shit if two guys, two gals, guy-gal, whatever it is, I believe that any human being in America, or any human being in the goddamn world, that wants to be married. “If it’s the same-sex, more power to them. “What also chaps my ass, some of these churches, have the high horse that they get on and say ‘we as a church do not believe in that’. “Which one of these motherf**kers talked to God and God said that same-sex marriage was a no can do? Can you verify? Can you give me some background on that 411?” The WWE legend retired from professional wrestling in 2003, after winning a total of 21 championships, and is described as “the biggest star in the history of the WWE”. Last year, current WWE star Darren James came out as gay, the first time a wrestler has come out in the competition’s history. Listen to a clip from the wrestler’s podcast below.

how long do the cravings really take to fade? Because I'm at about week seven or eight and I still yearn for it like I'd do something dirty for one smoke. I know I've quit for good this time, but, fuck, there are still points I'd sin for a cigarette.
Hell yeah! Anyone gonna celebrate?
From the "My Friend the Streisand Fan" page: [quote]...most people who are obsessive fans of one celebrity and who force their diva-worship on you are really narcissists. When they're telling you is: "This is who I wish I could be, and you have to love her as I do, so you can show me you love my ideal version of myself." If this is true, what are obsessive fans of the following divas telling you about who they wish they really were?: Barbra Streisand, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Cher, Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, Judy Garland, Idina Menzel, etc.
80''s cutie. Director of "Burlesque". What a shame.
ooh he hit a part II only took a year !
Because the first thread is full
Streisand was considered to play Ellen Burstyn's role. Love Ellen in it, and she more than deserved the nomination. Do you think Barbra would have been as good? Or pouring as much of herself into the role as Ellen did? I can't imagine her wanting to be thrown to the ground like Ellen did, literally breaking her ass. I'm sure a stunt double would have been used. She probably also would have objected to the ice cold temperature on the set.
Watched a few episodes of Hoarders yesterday and like 90% of the cases, the hoarders were lumpy, insane fraus. My baby died 15 years ago, so I'm going to neglect the kids that are still living and bury them in cat shit, dead rats and adult diapers. My husband cheated on me and left me, so I'm going to fill the house to the ceiling with stuffed animals and food that expired five years ago. Are fraus just nuts in general?
He's become totally obsessive and we are all tired of it. What should we do?
What happened to him?
Wow! She is very pretty!
She's kind of fierce though isn't she? Love the no eye contact trophey grab.
I just read Brad Davis' widows book. She pretty much says that Clayburgh and Davis had an affair and that they day Davis went public with AIDS Clayburgh called her in hysterics. Any talk of this back in the day? Sort of makes sense.
Or a gunt. So knock it off.
Tom Daley: I’m definitely gay not bisexual 3rd April 2014, 10:45 AM; Scott Roberts Five months after saying he still fancied girls, Tom Daley says “I am a gay man now”. Speaking on ITV2′s Celebrity Juice the 19-year-old Olympic medalist also said his relationship with Oscar winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, 39, is “all good”. Explaining why he initially suggested he was bisexual, Daley said: “I came out on YouTube as I wanted to say what I wanted to say without anyone twisting it. “I told my family before I told the world. I was terrified. I did not know what the reaction was going to be. “I did it on YouTube because people were constantly digging and asking questions.” Daley’s relationship with Black was exposed days after he posted the coming out video. “It really was love at first sight,” Daley told ITV’s Jonathan Ross after going public with their romance. “I’d never felt anything like it before. We were at a party and I hadn’t even spoken to him all night. “I didn’t know what to do or if he was gay at first. I made the first move, I typed ‘call me’ in his notes with a smiley face on this phone and the next day he texted.” Celebrity Juice airs tonight on ITV2 at 10pm.

And what the hell is "fillers"- caulk?
If ever there was an incident made for DL. I did a search and could not find a previously posted thread. Atlanta — Legendary singer Patti Labelle arrested and charged with assault and battery after attacking Aretha Franklin. The singers were in Atlanta for an R&B/Soul concert on March 20th when they ran into each other backstage. Labelle was still fuming from a recent run-in with Franklin at the White House for the “Women of Soul” concert. While Aretha Franklin was making her way to the stage, Labelle extended her hand to greet the “Respect” singer, when she threw epic shade in an effort to avoid her. The two exchanged obscenities after the event and parted ways. While at the concert in Atlanta, Labelle attempted to approach Franklin to resolve their outstanding issues, but Franklin once again turned up her nose. Onlookers say Labelle quickly removed her wig and earrings as she approached Franklin. Aretha, knowing that the removal of earrings is a tell-tale sign that a fight is about to ensue, attempted to prepare herself for the confrontation. Franklin was quickly struck with a Mayweather style right and left and stumbled backwards, landing awkwardly. Bystanders subdued Labelle and escorted her outside of the venue. Franklin suffered only minor injuries.

Do you devote a lot of attention and energy to keeping your personal environment organized? 3. Do you give people a lot of "shoulds" and "oughts" - unsolicited advice, suggestions, and "constructive criticism?" 4. Do you have lots of personal rules, routines, rituals, and ceremonies? 5. Are you the one who takes over and orders other people around when the situation seems confused? 6. Do you dislike depending on others, accepting help from them, or allowing them to do things for you? 7. Do you insist on "being right," having things done your way, or having the final word? 8. Do you "over-plan" simple activities? 9. Do you find it difficult to admit making mistakes, being wrong or misinformed about something, or acknowledging that you've changed your mind? 10. Do you become angry, irritable, or anxious when someone or something makes you late, when things don't start on time, or things don't go according to plan? Interpret Your Score: 41 - 50: yep, you're a control freak. 31 - 40: you probably have some control issues. 21 - 30: you can live and let live. 10 - 20: are you being honest? Aha!

First day of summer and Moi feels pretty!!!!!
Any suggestions for a hair dye that will cover my greys? I have medium brown hair with lots of grey coming in. I''ve yet to find a dye that will cover my greys. Every color I choose seems to darken my hair while barely coving my greys. I want to keep the same hair color, but would like my grays to blend in.\ \ I know going to a salon would be the obvious answer, but I can''t afford salon services and would like to take care of this myself at home.\ \ TIA.
Fairly new to Southern Maine and have heard a little about the invasion of Canadians who swarm down in the summer to this area. They mostly go to Old Orchard Beach, a sort of Brighton Beach for Maine, only it's for Canadians instead of Russians. I don't hear a lot of vitriol about our Canadian friends, but I do hear a little grumbling about how obnoxious they can be. Well, this morning I went through a Starbucks drive-through when I saw some middle aged guy come out to his car. My window was still half way down and I noticed him when he emitted this huge hocking sound, only to look up to see him hock a massive gob of spit/snot right onto the parking space next to him. Not into the grass, he didn't walk away from the store, he just hocked one out right there for all to see and have to come in contact with. As I drove around, I gave him sort of a nasty look and then noticed his plates were from Brunswick, Canada. Mainers - Are the Canadians who come down mostly rude, obnoxious people or is it rare? I'm going into my first Maine summer (transplant from NYC)and live in an area of Portland where a lot of tourists visit. Is this what we have to look forward to?
What famous men have you slept with?
The attorney's name is Marty Singer (I wonder if he's related to Bryan Singer). Interesting how Marty Singer represents both of his clients on sexual assault allegations. Interesting how in both cases, Marty Singer finds evidence, documentation to prove that Singer and Travolta weren't in the area during the time that the alleged events took place.
Do you? Are you gay?
Is he really? His fans and some of his "friends" keep saying that he is bisexual and very promiscuous with women, and only says that he is gay because he is HIV positive (which is a weird reason to call yourself gay, isn't it?).
Which of the male judges has the biggest dick, and why did you select him.
Since the spoiler in the "official thread" states that his spoilers are wanted, can we have a thread that doesn't say what happens in each episode until it has aired? I like all the teams in this All-Stars season. I will hate to see all of them get eliminated. I can't believe Team YouTube just let their taxi go while they were in the middle of no-where. They knew they had blown it and were good sports about it. They must have really been behind because even in the edit, they never crossed paths with Brandon and Rachael.
If yes, how were you talked into doing it the first time? Were you drunk? Did it happen while you were showering together?
Just like everyone is a journalist these days with the proliferation of countless websites...apparently now everyone is a co-host.
I was watching a program about Tammy Menendez tonight, she is married to Erik Menendez. It was so sad that after 22 years there is no chance that Erik will be realized and be able to live his life with Tammy, what a travesty of justice. 22 years is more than enough punishment. I don''t even know how Erik can get through each day, when he knows that there is no chance for parole.

Like this guy... "So, Anthony Hopkins was one of the stars in a film called "The Girl from Petrovka." And he went to London to buy a copy of the book so that he could read about the book and the character and so on. But he couldn't find a copy of the book. None of the bookstores stocked it. But then on his way home on the tube station in London, he came across a copy of the book on the seat next to him. Absolutely incredible. Later, when he met the author and told the author this story, the author told him that a year or so before he'd lost a copy of the book in London and it was a particular copy that he'd been annotating to change the English into American spellings and things like that, and he'd lost it on the Tube. And when Anthony Hopkins showed him the copy of the book that he'd found on the tube months later, it turned out to be exactly the same book. So, somehow, this book had traveled through space and time in a loop, in a circle."
After Valerie Solanas's 1968 attempted murder of Andy Warhol, the artist retreated from public accessibility and became more entrepreneurial, spending his time in the company of a veritable Who's Who of 1970s rich and famous. By his side was Bob Colacello, editor of Warhol's Interview magazine and--for more than a decade--his collaborator, wingman, and confidante. Bob's HOLY TERROR: Andy Warhol Close Up is a rare and definitive portrait of the ever-enigmatic cultural titan, originally published in 1990... From the Silver Factory to the Interview offices; from Studio 54 to a compound in Montauk, Bob went where Andy went--and knew him as both the domineering, influential artist who loomed large on the world stage and the shy, vulnerable man who came from Pittsburgh's Slavic ghetto. Warhol just as easily bedeviled as bedazzled; he knew how to push his collaborators' buttons and play both sides of conflict within his coterie...In HOLY TERROR, Bob pulls back the institutional red ropes to offer a between-the-scenes memoir that, most of all, makes a case for Warhol being human.
Any good stories here about fraxel for the face?Any horror stories? I was considering using it for my face to get rid of some hyperpigmented spots on my face (sun spots and dark spots from acne). I know there are two kinds of fraxel laser, and one should not be used for the face (or so I've heard).
They just make you want to turn straight.

Transcendence is a flop, one in a string. Looks like his career as we know it could be done. He should have done something serious in all those years he was playing drag in Tim Burton films.
Do you know anyone who has never moved away from their hometown or has had the same job their entire adult life? Or people who never change the way they dress or reevaluate what they want in life? I can't imagine what it is like to be that way. Why would somebody want to be so stagnant?
of otherwise obscure celebrities? It would appear that way. The site is simply drowning in these crazed fan threads that sit on the front pages for months (years at this point). The quirky thread topics that were once so popular, the Sumarian Housewives and lesbian potlucks and Dialig the Phone threads have all gone away. It's either all fringe politics or BomerRennerContractIsUpBagsofOranges etc. What went wrong?
It's laughable. Does any woman find him sexy?
Please take my poll. Right now these are the top names being bandied about as potential Letterman replacements.Also likely being discussed as potential candidates are Amy Schumer and Chelsea Handler; I did not list them because I ran out of space and it is unlikely they would be hired. But you are wlecome to vote for them as "Other." I also did not list Jon Stewart because almost everyone agrees it is extremely unlikely he would want to leave his position on Comedy Central, where he is top banana. You could also vote for him as "Other." Amy Poehler would have to leave "Parks and Recreation," but it is expected to be over when Letterman leaves next year.
Have you checked out her instagram account? She sure gets around...

There are 17 of them (see link below for the photo). Are all the tenors gay? Wonder if they have all gotten together for a group hook-up. That is one way to break the ice. Theatre DLers, see link below and tell us if they are all gay.
Who's been there? Is it nice? It was named after an ancestor of mine, and I've always wanted to visit.

So recently at a Julie Ruin show (Kathleen Hanna’s new joint), folks unrolled a banner in the balcony that said “APOLOGIZE FOR MICHIGAN.” Got that? The woman who isn’t playing this year, and hasn’t played for about 6 years, is being told to apologize to the trans community for ever having set foot at Michigan. Bow down, bitches. I want everyone to recognize that Michigan is a space of liberation. All those individuals out there who have never set foot there, who only know it through the rampant ignorance they have read on the internet, Michigan is not fucking Lillith Fair. It isn’t a fucking white party. It sure as shit isn’t a Dinah Shore skirts weekend. Michigan is revolutionary. I am showing these pictures, because words can’t explain it until you are there. Males are not allowed on the land (over the age of 10) except to suck the shit out of the porta-janes. We don’t even allow music with male voices in it. It is a space where we allow. females. to. reign. In that space, there are not threats of male violence. We walk in the woods, at night, without light and without fear. And for our trouble, every year when we show up there is graffiti from the local guys: ”DIEDYKES.” ”WEAREGONNAGETYOUBITCHES.” One year,they even snuck on the land and hung the little girl’s dolls in nooses from the trees. Sound familiar? And still we rise. Why? Because in that space, women do everything. They build the stages, they put in the plumbing, they hang the lights, they put up the scaffolding, they cook the food, they chainsaw the trees, they build the files, they counsel, they serve. THEY PROTECT. We leave our children to play without fear. We leave our bodies out, as is, without shame. We present in all of our gender non-conforming beauty, without ridicule. We are fat, hairy, femme, gorgeous, bearded, skinny, pregnant, masectomied, and any and all combination stated and not. At Michigan, we are everything, unapologetically. All while being female. Clearly. Without question. We are this world. We release from our bodies the years of protection and armoring that we carry within and upon ourselves; we dismantle our built up walls to protect ourselves from unwanted ogling, attention, violent words and thoughts. We release from our bodies things we have never lived without in patriarchy. We release the “close your legs,” “act more ladylike,” “ooh, you bled through your pants,” “stop being bossy”, “girls don’t...,” “I can smell your stinky pussy,” the”can’t you wear a dress?” We put it down entirely. It is gone. And you don’t understand the amount of space that fear holds in you until it is gone. And in that time that it is gone, the you of you fills that space. And that bell cannot be unrung. And that you of you helps you survive the year a better, bigger, and more complete female. This is enough to declare war. Because any woman who has become embodied is unstoppable. She is an amazon and a warrior and can do and will do anything. And this is why these people are trying to destroy or shame women out of this space. There are several other women’s music festivals that welcome all women. These people aren’t going to those. They don’t care about the culture, about the music, about the recovery. They care only about the dominance. This isn’t about equality. It is the patriarchal, colonial intent of “MINE.” And the women who assist these efforts are so brainwashed, so accustomed to male domination, that they walk alongside and facilitate it. The females who need this space the most are working hardest to undermine it. I don’t fear Michigan disappearing because over 40 years, the community of Michigan (all those other weeks of the year) have spread; the tendrils are huge. We are immediate and real and true and we are all over the globe with those lights inside of us. So that cannot be erased; that power is in the world. Out there are more lives to be saved, and these people are trying to tear that down. So for all trans women of conscience. I beg you. Get your girls. Speak out like Calpernia Addams in PUBLIC.

Half Italian, half Black, big dick, fat ass, handsome face, juicy lips, and he can suck is own dick with his legs behind his head because he's a former gymnast. What more is there to ask for? I've fallen in love bitches!
My cat just turned a year old. I received tons of brochures and email from pet insurance providers when I adopted him. I didn't mean to put off the idea of getting some. I already paid out of pocket for his first year exams and shots. I also paid for his medication for a tummy ache. After going through all of that, when he turned a year I began considering getting him covered. Since he's still young, I thought I should get serious now if I'm ever going to enroll. There are so many insurances, I can't really decide which one is best. He doesn't have any ailments yet, ailments that would require constant attention. I know a lot of you are pet owners and animal lovers. Can someone suggest an insurance? I'd love to hear from people who've actually used the company. Again, I have a cat. I'm not sure that matters, but perhaps one insurance is better for them when it comes to issues such as kidney disease, something cats are known to develop. Thanks so much!!!
Dear Jetstar, Do you like riddles? I do, that’s why I’m starting this letter with one. What weighs more than a Suzuki Swift, less than a Hummer and smells like the decaying anus of a deceased homeless man? No idea? How about, what measures food portions in kilograms and has the personal hygiene of a French prostitute? Still nothing? Right, one more try. What’s fat as fuck, stinks like shit and should be forced to purchase two seats on a Jetstar flight? That’s right, it’s the man I sat next to under on my flight from Perth to Sydney yesterday. As I boarded the plane, I mentally high-fived myself for paying the additional $25 for an emergency seat. I was imagining all that extra room, when I was suddenly distracted by what appeared to be an infant hippopotamus located halfway down the aisle. As I got closer, I was relieved to see that it wasn’t a dangerous semi-aquatic African mammal, but a morbidly obese human being. However, this relief was short-lived when I realised that my seat was located somewhere underneath him. Soon after I managed to burrow into my seat, I caught what was to be the first of numerous fetid whiffs of body odour. His scent possessed hints of blue cheese and Mumbai slum, with nuances of sweaty flesh and human faeces sprayed with cologne - Eau No. Considering I was visibly under duress, I found it strange that none of the cabin crew offered me another seat. To be fair, it’s entirely possible that none of them actually saw me. Perhaps this photo will jog their memories. Pinned to my seat by a fleshy boulder, I started preparing for a 127 Hours-like escape. Thankfully though, the beast moved slightly to his left, which allowed me to stand up, walk to the back of the plane and politely ask the cabin crew to be seated elsewhere. I didn’t catch the names of the three flight attendants, but for the purpose of this letter, I’ll call them: Chatty 1, Chatty 2 and Giggly (I’ve given them all the same surname - Couldnotgiveashit). After my request, Chatty 1 and Chatty 2 continued their conversation, presumably about how shit they are at their jobs, and Giggly, well, she just giggled. I then asked if I could sit in one of the six vacant seats at the back of the aircraft, to whichGiggly responded, “hehehe, they’re for crew only, hehehe“. I think Giggly may be suffering from some form of mental impairment. I tried to relocate myself without the assistance of the Couldnotgiveashit triplets, but unfortunately everyone with a row to themselves was now lying down. It was then I realised that my fate was sealed. I made my way back to Jabba the Hutt and spent the remainder of the flight smothered in side-boob and cellulite, taking shallow breaths to avoid noxious gas poisoning. Just before landing, I revisited the back of the plane to use the toilet. You could imagine my surprise when I saw both “crew only” rows occupied by non-crew members. I can only assume Giggly let them sit there after she forgot who she was and why she’s flying on a big, shiny metal thing in the sky. Imagine going out for dinner and a movie, only to have your night ruined by a fat mess who eats half your meal then blocks 50% of the screen. Isn’t that exactly the same as having someone who can’t control their calorie intake occupying half your seat on a flight? Of course it is, so that’s why I’m demanding a full refund of my ticket, including the $25 for an emergency row seat. I’m also looking to be compensated for the physical pain and mental suffering caused by being enveloped in human blubber for four hours. My lower back is in agony and I had to type this letter one-handed as I’m yet to regain full use of my left side. If I don’t recover completely, I’ll have to say goodbye to my lifelong dream of becoming Air Guitar World Champion. If that occurs, you will pay. To discuss my generous compensation package, email me at: [Redacted], or tweet me at: @RichWisken No regards, Rich Wisken.
Married Georgia cops file lawsuit challenging state ban on marriage equality By Reuters; Tuesday, April 22, 2014 18:18 EDT By David Beasley ATLANTA (Reuters) – A federal lawsuit was filed in Atlanta on Tuesday, challenging the constitutionality of a Georgia law banning same sex marriage, the first such case in the southern U.S. state. Until the suit was filed, Georgia was one of only a handful of states in the country which had not yet faced a legal challenge to its same-sex marriage ban. Georgia’s law denies same-sex couples “equal dignity and respect and deprive their families of a critical safety net,” said the suit, which seeks class-action status. Georgia state Attorney General Sam Olens will “fulfill his constitutional obligation to defend Georgia law,” said spokeswoman Lauren Kane. The lawsuit is sponsored by Lambda Legal, a non-profit group specializing in civil rights issues for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender people. Two of the female plaintiffs are Atlanta police officers who married in Connecticut and want Georgia to legally recognize their union. Another plaintiff wants Georgia to include her name on her late spouse’s death certificate. Currently, seventeen U.S. states and the District of Columbia allow same-sex couples to marry. That number would increase if federal court rulings striking down bans in several states are upheld on appeal. The Georgia case, however, could take years to resolve in the courts, said Beth Littrell, an attorney for Lamdba Legal. Georgia voters in 2004 amended the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The U.S. Supreme Court last year ruled that legally married same-sex couples are eligible for federal benefits.
Does City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito play for our team?
Enough of this shit already! Some cunts set a bomb off. The brave people are the ones who fought back from their injuries and who suffered the loss of their loved ones and hunted down the bombers. Wearing tshirts and waving Red Sox banners doesn't make you "strong". What the fuck was the city supposed to do anyway, melt the fuck down and cease operations? Seriously, it's become the new "Stronger than the Storm" and "We Will Rebuild". We're going to be deluged with this crap the next 7 days so get ready. It's all going to be about how the city "came back" and is "stronger than ever" etc. etc. When did tragedies become tourism marketing campaigns and why would they make entire cities or states heroes for having lived through it when those people had nothing to do with surviving it?
The New York Post reached new lows publishing "an open letter to Chelsea Clinton's fetus" -- rather than simply reporting on Clinton's recently announced pregnancy or offering the couple well-wishes, the Post took the opportunity to attack the new baby and soon-to-be grandparents Bill and Hillary Clinton under the guise of "news." The April 22 letter told the baby that "what makes you so special" is "you're going to live your whole life in make-believe." The Post labeled the child a "campaign asset" and "stage prop" for "Lady Pantsuit" and non-"maternal" Hillary Clinton: Welcome to advanced gestation! Since you're new around here, I thought you'd like to know a little bit about what makes you so special. The reason is, you're going to live your whole life in make-believe! [...] In two years or so, when most babies are just learning to crawl, you will be hitting the road! Grandma Hillary is going to need you to smile and coo whenever there are Sunshine Men around. So play nice and don't projectile vomit. Grandma is not what grown-ups call "maternal," and was busy turning $1000 into $100,000 in the magical cow trading market when your mommy was a baby, so she will have to make believe she is really "helping out" with you. No crying if she gets the diaper on the wrong end! [...] The best part of your make-believe Clinton-Mezvinsky life is that people will pretend you're good at things and give you gifts like high-paying consultancy gigs when you just got out of college, jobs reporting for NBC News when you have as much camera-awareness as a smoked flounder, and the leadership of the free world because you "deserve it." UPDATE: Sometime after the publication of this blog, the New York Post altered its headline to "An open letter to Chelsea Clinton's unborn child." The Post promoted its story on Facebook and Twitter under the original headline before changing it: "An Open Letter to Chelsea Clinton's Unborn Fetus"
Do you habitually leave anything on when you leave the house, either overnight or for just a few hours? What about while you're at work? On vacation? Do you leave a radio or television on for a pet? Do you use lamp timers? Surge protectors? Point-of-use or whole house? What about a programmable thermostat for your heating and/or cooling? Do you set your 'stat up/down/off at night? Or away? Do you use fans in warm (not hot) weather? Do you ever open your windows for ventilation and/or cooling? Do you use power strips to stop vampire loads? Do you know what a vampire load is?

This isn't partisan. This is something systemic and rotten to the core of government. There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning each answer, in the case of the jobless survey, carries the weight of about 5,000 households — Buckmon’s actions alone would have given inaccurate readings on the economic health of 500,000 families. Buckmon alleged that he was told to fudge the data by higher-ups. There was no formal probe back then into what Buckmon was doing or what he was alleging, although a Census investigator — who is now under indictment for other crimes against the bureau — did question a few people. A source told me from the start of my investigation last October that Buckmon’s actions weren’t isolated and that falsification continued in the Philadelphia office right through the 2012 presidential election, only stopping when I exposed the practice last fall. Now others who work at Census in different areas of the country are stepping forward to tell me similar stories about data being changed at the whim of supervisors who are more concerned about making quotas than protecting the integrity of information that is used for everything from cost-of-living adjustments for Social Security recipients to monetary policy decisions by the Federal Reserve and business plans by companies in the US. “I can tell you that waste, falsification and fraud are rampant,” says one of my new sources, who works as a Census supervisor in the Midwest and handles a number of surveys, including those on jobs, health and crime. When this source complained, higher-ups “told me to shut my mouth.” When that didn’t happen, the source was deprived of work.
By that, I mean straight women who love gay men (don't like lesbians); straight guys who like lesbians (hate gay men). There are quite a few young women in my office who love the gay guys in the office (and in general), but they give the cold shoulder to the one lesbian in the whole building. I know that sucks, because I hate straight guys who do the opposite. This is a selective form of homophobia? Do you know people like this?

Have a friend who is a florist, insists on being referred to as a "designer". Not a 'floral designer' or 'florist', but "designer". I love him to death but he's become too much with it all. He goes to competitions and talks about all the high drama of the flower arranging contests, and bitches about "placing" when he doesn't get first place. He was recently voted third best in his state and he isn't going to let anyone forget it. We were at dinner last week and he launched into a tirade of how churches and wedding venues should not allow weddings until those getting married have provided verification they have a "licensed floral designer on their team" to avoid any "issues". He's constantly pushing and shilling Facebook groups like "The Floral Boys of Facebook" and "Bears who Make Beautiful Things" etc. I will keep biting my tongue but it's just getting harder to do every day.
My drain is clogged so I don't really have a choice, but it looks clean to me for about a week.

Painfully unfunny. Worse even than SCRUBS. WHO watches this?
New Orleans house specifically. It used to have a restaurant in the complex that faced the street. First it was a bad diner, then a bad Italian restaurant. Now I see a small pizza place but what about the restaurant space...anyone know what it is now?
Does anyone know for sure? I can't find anything really conclusive, one way or another. He covers many, many gay-related stories. All I know is this: He is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful.

The ultimate "frau" site?
He's gay, right? I'm watching him give the forecast on Good Day NY in my doctor's office. He's incredibly muscular, really well-groomed, and has a certain "pingy" quality about him. So what's the verdict on this gorgeous weather hottie?
Ergh, couldn't he invest in some lipo?
I have the strong sense when I'm around women that they operate with a lot of shame. Almost all of the women I know - as direct, fun and open as they can be - seem to be hiding shame of some kind. So what are women most ashamed of? Is it their bodies - the fat, the heavy thighs, the folds, all the things that are anatomically "normal" about being a woman? Is it their genitalia, rather than their bodies in general? Like they feel "dirty" or the menses bother them or leave them feeling unclean (in some weird way)? Is it their families and background? Their lack of education - educated women almost always seem determined to let you know it as soon as they can. What are women so ashamed of? (And, no, this isn't a thread for a poll.)
William Vahey, a teacher suspected of molesting hundreds of students at international schools during a 40-year career, took his own life. HOUSTON, April 22 (UPI) -- A teacher at international schools around the world may have molested hundreds of teenage boys after drugging them with sleeping pills, the FBI said Tuesday. William James Vahey, 64, took his own life last month in Minnesota. The FBI in Houston is leading the investigation into his past. The FBI said that Vahey was teaching at the American Nicaraguan School in Managua when administrators obtained a thumb drive that showed teenage boys who appeared to be drugged. The school said Vahey admitted molesting underage students and said he had been a victim of sexual abuse as a child. Vahey was jailed in California in 1969 on a charge of molesting children. But he was able to obtain positions at schools catering to the children of U.S. diplomats, the military, other expatriates and local families seeking U.S.-style schooling for their children, and was a popular and respected teacher and basketball coach. Special Agent Patrick Fransen said the thumb drive held images going back to 2008, and suggested Vahey had molested at least 90 boys on overnight field trips. The boys may not have known of the abuse because they were unconscious. Investigators have learned that Vahey took students on field trips at other schools during his long career. “I’m concerned that he may have preyed on many other students prior to 2008,” Fransen said. “I’ve never seen another case where an individual may have molested this many children over such a long period of time.” During his 40-year career, Vahey taught at schools in Britain, Venezuela, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Greece, Iran, Spain and Lebanon before his arrival in Managua. The FBI is working with the State Department and foreign law enforcement agencies in the investigation. “At this time, investigators have no knowledge that Vahey shared or traded any of the pornographic material he made,” Fransen said. “But his suicide left a lot more questions unanswered than answered.”

I know I am probably late to this party but : I saw a PBS program about Oscar Hammerstein ll , and Matthew Morrison was the host. He was a good host, but I could not imagine him as a straight guy in real life. That opinon was not based on his voice or body language, but just on him taken in as a whole person. Why he would shy away from being gay is a mystery. Being gay would not ruin his career. It might exactually.

Jimmy Kimmel is catching up to Fallon in the ratings. Where is Jay when we need him? "Speaking of Fallon, last night’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon drew a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 with a total viewership of 4.456 million. That’s down 17% in both categories from the show’s February 26 results. While Fallon was down to his lowest number since taking over The Tonight Show, the other Jimmy was up strong and closing the 11:35 PM gap. With a much stronger Thursday primetime as a near lead-in and Scandal’s Kerry Washington as his main guest, Jimmy Kimmel Live got a 1.0 rating in the demo and an audience of 3.555 million. That’s a 100% leap up among the 18-49s from the night before for Kimmel and a 44% rise in viewership from the 2.456 million viewers of his February 26 show. Last night’s JKL was actually the show’s second most watched episode ever after the 3.642 million who watched the January 24, 2013 “Matt Damon Takeover” show. CBS’s David Letterman had a 0.5 rating with 2.710 million viewers, a slight upturn from the night before. Still the fourth show of the second week of Fallon’s new gig equaled the 1.4 rating that Conan O’Brien got on the fourth night of his second Tonight Show week on June 11, 2009. While the demo rating was on par, like the night before Fallon bested O’Brien’s comparable night’s 3.565 million viewers. Like in metered-market results, Fallon was ahead of the 1.14 rating and 4.066 million viewers that Jay Leno got on the comparable night of his Tonight Show return in 2010.)"

Any doctors, nurses or pharmacists out there, PLEASE!!! I have had type 2 diabetes very well controlled by diet alone for almost 6 years with my A1C ranging always between 5.2 and 5.6. I had a severe asthma attack and have been on and will have to stay on for another week a large dose of Prednisone. I had been getting it IV at the hospital as an inpatient for the past week and now have to continue with a tapering off amount for another week. My blood sugar has gone quite high because of the prednisone. I was instructed to take regular insulin for this week whenever my sugar goes higher than 200. I had no insulin in the house, never used it before. I got a prescription at the hospital and picked up a bottle of Novolog. The pharmacy is now closed. I went to use it and I see on the box that it expired September 2013. Again, this is regular, not long lasting insulin. I called the hospital and they said they can’t tell me to use expired insulin or to just skip it, one way or the other. I have no private doctor. I don’t know if I should take it or skip it until tomorrow when I can call the pharmacist. My sugar is 257.

Story contains a photo taken with an employee of the store: “We thought he was a movie star, but we just couldn’t place it. So we asked him when we rang him out,” Salt Lake Running Company employee Amanda Theobald told CB! of the actor's surprise Sunday shopping trip. "He said he's back to training at Gym Jones for the next movie." And that means getting back into Spandex -- $300 bucks worth. "He bought two pairs of C-WX tights and a couple pairs of Saucony and Northface shorts," she added. The 30-year-old heartthrob also brought a shopping companion. It looks like he and his girlfriend Gina Carano are going strong, despite their brief break-up this summer. "He was with his MMA fighter girlfriend. She helped him pick out some shorts and took care of him more than we did," added Theobald with a laugh. "He really kept to himself and no one recognized him," except one lucky employee. "One of our employees loves Superman so he just had to get a picture with him."
Kim Novak says that cruel jabs about how she looked during the Oscar ceremony amounted to bullying that left her crushed at first, but then determined to speak out in protest. "It really did throw me into a tailspin and it hit me hard," Novak, 81, said in a telephone interview Thursday, after she released an open letter condemning remarks by Donald Trump and others about her appearance. In her letter, Novak said: "I will no longer hold myself back from speaking out against bullies. We can't let people get away with affecting our lives." She had initially remained silent after serving as a presenter with Matthew McConaughey at the March 2 Academy Awards because the comments were so painful, Novak said from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. "For days, I didn't leave the house, and it got to me like it gets kids and teenagers" who are attacked, she said. Trump tweeted during the Oscars that Novak should "sue her plastic surgeon," while others noted how unnaturally smooth-faced the veteran star of "Vertigo" and other classic films looked — even though actresses are pressured to look forever young. "I'm not going to deny that I had fat injections in my face. They seemed far less invasive than a face lift," Novak wrote in her letter, adding, "In my opinion, a person has a right to look as good as they can, and I feel better when I look better." Novak's Oscar night speech, which some observers characterized as halting, was the result of a pill she had taken to relax and a three-day fast, she said in her letter. Novak wasn't the only older actress targeted at the Oscars. She was disturbed, she said, when ceremony host Ellen DeGeneres singled out audience member Liza Minnelli, 68, and pretended to mistake her for a male impersonator. "Good job, sir," DeGeneres said. Novak said she retains dark memories of her years as a young actress in Hollywood, when she suffered from untreated bipolar disorder and was acutely sensitive to the industry's casual snideness and harsh reviews of her lesser films. But the Oscar sniping took her aback, Novak said, because she had been given such a gracious welcome during a visit last year to Cannes, France, and gets warm notes from fans. "I thought, 'Perhaps Hollywood is ready to receive me in a different way.' I was just not prepared for such a negative reaction and it just caught me off guard," she said. Comments spread fast and far online, she said, and people don't realize you're listening. "It goes over in such a public way now," she said. It was a commitment to appear at the TCM Film Festival last week that changed her mind about going public with her concerns. Novak, an artist with an upcoming exhibit at the Butler Institute of American Art in Ohio, also showed one of her works, a "Vertigo"-related painting, at the festival. She was well received during her initial appearance but felt she had to "take the bull by the horns" and deal openly with the treatment of her and Minnelli, she said. Turner Classic Movies host Robert Osborne agreed to discuss it during an interview that preceded a festival screening Saturday of her film "Bell, Book and Candle." Novak, who said she takes medication for her disorder, decided afterward that she wanted to spread her message more widely and asked her longtime manager, Sue Cameron, to release the letter. "I realized that I had to stand up not only for myself but for other people that don't have the courage to do so," Novak said. "I feel like I have a mission."
"I don’t believe we have definitive data (although many psychiatrists with very impressive credentials, who seem to mean well, assert that we do) that any male or female soul has ever in the history of the world been born into the wrong anatomic gender. Let me put that more clearly: I am not convinced by any science I can find that people with definitively male DNA and definitively male anatomy can actually be locked in a cruel joke of nature because they are actually female."

Qaud and Mariah no longer friends. Dr. Simone is Broke.. Dr. Jackie is fighting mad... and Kari demoted to "friend of Toya"...oh my,
or is it staged? I'm not sure what the laws are there. I sometimes find it depressing to watch, which can make it unfappable.
I say "stupid" not because I''ve seen it, but the commercials for it make me nauseous with the acappella "dah dah da dah dah dah dahhh" music, tight shots of the cast members looking pensively into the camera or repeating some mega cheesy line, the dark haired woman who seems like she poses for every shot of every scene she''s in.\ \ Seriously, it must be the most douchey show on television if it resembles the commercials in the least.
They're changing the entire premise of the show. They will be cocaine smugglers, and it will become a take on "Miami Vice."
Do people think you look younger than your real age? Do you look 5 years or 10 years younger than your actual number? What do you do to keep yourself looking youthful?

Despite having the world's most enormous cranium, Kim Jong Un wasn't very bright, stuggling and lagging far behind his classmates at an expensive Swiss school. He never passed his exams and like his father before him he had (and has) his fixations (Dads: Disney; His: computer games/basketball). There's a little something else about this Kim Jong: [quote]At weekends there were parties and a lot of under-age drinking. But I never once saw a drop of alcohol pass his lips and he wasn't interested in girls. What? No Kim Jong Deux?
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Postal Service on Monday unveiled the image for its new stamp honoring Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected official to be featured on a U.S. stamp. The image is based on a 1977 black and white photograph of Milk at his Castro Street Camera store in San Francisco, according to the Postal Service. The original photo was taken by Daniel Nicoletta of Grants Pass, Ore., and Antonio Alcala of Alexandria, Va., was the art director for the stamp. Milk first made history in 1977, when he became one of the first openly gay elected officials in the United States. He was assassinated shortly after winning a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. During his 11 months in office, at a time when the gay and lesbian community was encountering widespread hostility and discrimination, Milk passed a stringent gay rights ordinance for the city. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama in 2009, and he was also the subject of a 2008 Academy Award-winning biopic starring Sean Penn, called "Milk." The official first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony for Milk's stamp will take place at the White House on May 22, which is known as Harvey Milk Day in California. A public dedication ceremony will also take place in San Francisco on May 28. Harvey Milk stamps can be ordered via the Postal Service.
I hope you bitches are happy! Look at what your gossiping has done!

My partner is being transferred to England by his company. We consider this a very good move because we are currently in Charlotte, NC which we hate, having previously come from Chicago which we loved (simmer down anti-Chicago troll). We will be living SW of London in Surrey. This makes commutes, etc bearable. My partner is from London, grew up in central London and does not want to go back into the city to live. This will be a point of discussion for us over the next year, but regardless, we are moving to Surrey to start. We are past clubbing age, at least for us (we're both 43) and live a reasonably quiet life, working a lot, traveling, like to eat out, outdoor activities, meet friends for drinks, etc. I'm excited about this move, but also know there will be lots of cultural things I'm not ready for. Any pointers in assimilating well?
my eyes!!! the face!!!!
Is this one person, or two individuals who seem to obsess over two, for the most part, obscure and little known people?

Uma Thurman is set to star as anti-gay activist Anita Bryant in Anita, directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman from a screenplay by Chad Hodge. The film follows Bryant, a former celebrity singer and orange juice spokeswoman, who, when she allows a gay screenwriter into her home, is forced to confront her past as an anti-gay Christian crusader who successfully campaigned to overturn a gay rights law in Florida and destroyed her show biz career in the process. UTA Independent Film Group and WME are co-representing domestic rights, and are shopping the project to financiers in Cannes. Epstein and Friedman, a successful filmmaking team since 1987, aren't strangers to depicting real-life people and events. They recently directed the Linda Lovelace biopic Lovelace, starring Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard and Sharon Stone, while their documentary The Battle of amFAR will be broadcast on HBO in early December. Anita has high-caliber producers in Sex and the City showrunner Darren Star, Howard Rosenman, Jeffrey Schwarz and Dennis Erdman. Thurman is represented by UTA, Untitled Entertainment and attorney Ira Schreck. Star is represented by UTA.
Lindsay Lohan says she suffered a miscarriage during the taping of her reality show. Lohan dropped the bombshell during the final episode of the OWN show Sunday night ... when asked to reflect on her experience with the reality show. "No one knows this," Lohan said ... "I had a miscarriage for those two weeks that I took off.” She continued, "It's a very long story, but that's why on the show when it says she doesn't want to come down, I couldn't move, I was sick. Mentally, that messes with you." Lindsay did not identify the FATHER of the child.
I hope you bitches are happy! Look at what your gossiping has done!
It's like they're struggling to break free.
Anna's face looks different. BTW Joe M. Is now available!!!!!
You all should learn from this.
I have never heard of such a thing. "That was actually my fifth step in AA at Betty Ford. And someone, when I was moving during the OWN show, must have taken a photo of it. And so that's a really personal thing and it's really unfortunate…I talk about it on the last episode on the OWN show, so to be continued."
There culture is homophobic, right, but surely dataloungers have had relationships with some.
Star Magazine is trying to make something offscreen between Kerry Washington and the married actor who plays President Grant, Tony Goldwyn. It sounds like some fan fiction, but I could see his wife wondering if something is going on behind the scenes. In a recent interview, Tony admitted that his wife doesn’t watch the show and that he doesn’t want her to: "The drama on ABC’s Scandal isn’t just on the small screen! In a scenario fit for the juicy series, Tony Goldwyn’s real-life wife is jealous over his too-close-for-comfort relationship with his on-screen love interest, Kerry Washington. In a recent interview, 53 year-old Tony – who plays President Fitzgerald Grant – admitted that his wife, Jane Musky, 59, isn’t a fan of his sexy story line. “My wife doesn’t watch it,” Tony revealed. “I don’t encourage it.” But insiders explain that Jane’s jealousy is about much more than just his love scenes. “Tony and Jane constantly argue about his close off-camera relationship with Kerry,” spills the spy. “Jane has been to the set a few times and thought Kerry was too flirty with him in between takes. Tony constantly reassures her that nothing would ever happen with Kerry, but she will never be comfortable with it.” [From Star Magazine, print edition, July 1, 2013] Kerry Washington is gorgeous and single (as far as I know) and the tabloids are constantly trying to link her with someone. Last year The Enquirer was claiming that Michele Obama was jealous of Kerry’s close relationship with President Obama and had banned her from the White House. (Kerry helped campaign for Obama and was appointed to his Arts and Humanities committee.) That whole scenario sounded like it was lifted from “Scandal,” as does this one. She’s performing a role and she does it so well that people are convinced it mirrors her personal life. I would like to know more about her personal life actually. She seems to play it very close to her chest.
I've read rumors elsewhere that he's gay and mentioned this to my boss, who is a lesbian. For some reason she got bent out of shape refusing to entertain the notion that Daniel Craig might be gay. So, IF he is gay, does anyone have some good strong evidence that Daniel Craig is gay that I can present her?
This show is addictive. David and the show are so sweet and comforting. Some people go to church and pray to get that feeling, but this works for secular me.
Why wasn't her career bigger?
Or will they? Ever since the Havenettes reported themselves to the online tabs so they could get the attention and validation they lack in real life, there has been a low-level and very silly rumor that RPattz is still in love with KStew. But "sources" say RPattz isn't interested in dating -- after KStew, he's scared of all girls forever! But is it all just a ruse to cover the fact that little Burrito Sweatpea Pattinson could be born any day now? Will Havenette Vern ever get an editor for her self-published porn? Will Traceybelle wish death on more little girls? Come with all your theories and evidence here!
Premiers tonight... this is the new fall show I've probably been most looking forward to. Karl Urban! Premiere tonight, and then a new episode tomorrow at its regular time. Anyone watching? Anyone excited?
We know from other threads (and life) that some are. So post the gym(s) you regularly go to and whether or not they are sexual bombs. Include the city, and the branch as well as the name of the club. I will also include a poll in order to get a read on what this situation is nationwide.
(condensed version of his OP-ED) The gay community has a chip on its shoulder from the politicians and preachers that it once fought, passing it off as a never-again mentality. That’s bunk. It’s not a popular opinion, but it’s true: the gay lobby has become the bully. The absurdity of it all is that we’ve won. Not every member of the queer community. Far from it. And hardly all of our brothers, sisters and fellow queer people worldwide have experienced the same victory that we have. But if we’re talking about middle-class white gay men in Canada? Hell, we arguably have it better than the average straight guy. That’s not a comfortable, or perhaps even conceivable, thought for a population so well trained in cultural guerrilla warfare. At the end of the day, where does it end? Do we go after every person who actively works against us? Do we destroy every funder of anti-gay movements — like Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich? Do we attack everyone who speaks out or makes a one-off comment — like Ted Bird or reality-TV bachelor Juan Pablo? Institutionalized homophobia, transphobia, racism or discrimination should always be fought. But teasing out the personal convictions of anyone and using it as a basis to take them out? That’s exactly what we experienced, and we know how oppressive it feels. The queer community won its rights — and will continue to win its rights — by engaging the debate and winning. We won’t cement those rights in place by turning around and taking shots at those who haven’t come around to seeing us as normal, yet. And we don’t reduce violence by engaging the state to attack our enemies. We do the opposite. Gay rights are not a lucky break brought about by fooling the populace at large. Gay rights are not a fragile peace that can be broken by a man in a sandwich board with a strongly worded leaflet. Gay rights are the product of decades of struggle, and if you think a few holdouts are going to threaten that, you have another think coming, sister. If you want to stand up for closeted youth or marginalized queer populations or our oppressed cohorts overseas, do it not by demonizing the few who don’t like us, but by holding up the millions who do. -Justin Ling
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.
They won't show us their goodies in the gym lockerroom. Hissssssssssssssss!
Are they good to use if you have a sinus infection or only as a preventative measure?
I'm surprised he doesn't get more love here. He's a porn star who was a former high fashion model who actually LOOKS like a high fashion model--no tattoos--abs and dick of death--razor sharp cheekbones and great hair. And an inexhaustible performer.
What happened to these threads?\ \ An example of why I go to adult book store video booths in NYC.
Quinn Jaxon's new thread, since the last one got closed...
I've come to dislike this question at work. On Monday everyone is asking. My co-workers seem to lead exciting lifes, one co-worker is away every weekend to climb. The issue is not that I'm not out (I am) but that I stay in abd enjoy the downtime wuite a lot. But otherssometimes make me feel like I have to do something else, go outside. It's the same with my gfs family. Always sending pictures via a family whatsapp group of where they've just been and how much they did.

If you were thinking of catching Johnny Depp's latest flop this weekend: Don't. The Rating's are in and film critics are shocked at what they assumed would be an intelligent and thought provoking movie. Along with Depp, the cast for this movie is stellar. Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany, Cillian Murphy, Kate Mara, and Rebecca Hall round out an impressive cast that simply cannot hold this steaming mess together. Check under the cut to see what some critics are saying about Depp's latest failure. Synopsis: As Dr. Will Caster works toward his goal of creating an omniscient, sentient machine, a radical anti-technology organization fights to prevent him from establishing a world where computers can transcend the abilities of the human brain. Rex Reed from the New York Obeserver: On Depp's Performance: It’s the cushiest job in one of the worst movies ever made because the star gets to stay home and blow up the world in his easy chair, phoning in the dialogue Overall: The result is a pointless nightmare of pretentious science fiction twaddle with no plot, no coherence and no heart. You couldn’t find a narrative thread with a microscope. Richard von Busack from Metro Active On the overall film: Pretty damned bad. Another example of 2014 CG used to animate 1974's science fiction ideas. On Director Wally Pfsiter: First-time director Wally Pfister is Christopher Nolan's usual cinematographer, and yet Transcendence isn't distinguished visually; Pfister seems to have absorbed all of Nolan's self-seriousness and none of his livelines Jake Coyle from UT San Diego/Associated Press : On Comparison's Between the film HER and Transcendence: ... whereas"Her" was playful and personal about familiar futuristic concepts, "Transcendence" is clunky and lifeless. It's like the movie version of a paranoid TED talk. On Rebecca Hall's Performance: "Transcendence" ultimately hinges on the relationship of Caster and Evelyn. The excellent Hall, looking a bit confused by what she's gotten herself into, does her best to emotionally ground Pfister's increasingly unfocused and heavy-handed story. Brian Bishop from The Verge On the Christopher Nolan Produced Film: It stars several Nolan mainstays, features the same kind of meticulous photography and production design we’ve come to expect, and mixes a high-concept premise with an intimate emotional core. But the comparisons end there, as the film collapses into a shambling mess of ’90s cyber-paranoia and action tropes that not even the charisma of Johnny Depp can redeem. On the Cast: Depp seems disinterested without a crazy costume or affectation to play with, and while Rebecca Hall is wonderful as his grief-stricken wife, there’s no getting around the fact that the duo have no chemistry together ... The same is true for Bettany, Morgan Freeman, and Cillian Murphy, all exceptional actors who at times feel like they’re starring in outtakes from entirely different movies Alonso Duralde from The Wrap On Plot Holes:This is the kind of film where, by the time you've reached your car in the parking lot, you find yourself asking your date questions like “Why was the nano-technology visible to the human eye?” and “If computer Will can scan Evelyn's biochemical emotional reactions, why can't it catch her lying?” On the One Good Thing About Transcendence: If there's one solid take-away from “Transcendence,” it's Rebecca Hall's performance as a computer genius (she's not just Will's wife, she's his collaborator) so blinded by grief and by the possibilities of pushing science to the next level, that she aids and abets Will's ambitious, terrifying agenda. She remains committed to the character even when the plot's logic goes 404 – Not Found. Scott Foundas from Variety On the Leads and their Performance: Depp fails to convey any real sense of the passion and curiosity that supposedly drive Will Caster to do what he does. The gravely beautiful Hall ... seems to have been directed to deliver her entire performance in an unwavering state of glassy-eyed anxiety.
These were the people I asked to come over Sunday at 9 for drinks & to watch "Game of Thrones" (they don't have cable) who would have brought their dog had I warned them not to. The friend just emailed and told me his partner wanted to bring something, "perhaps a savory pie." I find dishes like that disgusting, and wrote back to him asking them not to bring anything, just themselves. He wrote again saying, "But my partner insists we bring something!" and I responded, "If you really want to bring something, just bring a simple snack... please, nothing elaborate, and please, please, nothing savory." I already regret inviting them over.
There were rumors about Eminem which seem sort of gross since she was playing his mother but other than that, anything?
Dr. Nakagawa or Nakagawa-san?
Do people still drink or use "juice" made from concentrate?
When someone who is at present receiving hospice care (bedridden, trouble swallowing, sleeps almost all the time) passes away, I stand to come into a fair amount of money that is currently invested (not cash). Anyone experienced a similar situation? How long does it usually take to dissolve a trust?
Or will they just pretend like the Clintons. (I personally think Barack has worked so hard the last few years he should be rewarded with the chocolate perfection of Lupita for his retirement.)
Of course I'll need a few extra bucks to get rid of that ghastly gray-and-brown color scheme and those hideous chandeliers. But since the house comes with 640 acres of Napa wine country loveliness, it'd be worth the trouble.
Today is the day you celebrate the dead jew coming back to life and becoming your savior? His dad used to be a big meanie who ordered rape and murder but after the kid was born decided to be a loving god since murdering his son made him finally happy? Now you meet up and eat the body and drink the blood of the dead jew? Eventually he comes back to life yet again to ...what something to do with Israel? As someone outside of your religion I find it very strange and really don't understand it.
That's what it said on the cover of EW but I was too tired to stop and read it.
She is so smug and likes to insert herself into the stories she''s discussing on GMA. She also needs to come out of the closet. Anyone agree?
I can think of like 4 butch little teens who asked me out. I said no to all of them.

In America, Carine can hold Gertrude's hand and not be beaten. It's amazing to them both. On Market Street in San Francisco, they can push their baby in a stroller and not be spit upon for being witches or demons of sin - as lesbians are back in their home villages in Cameroon. In that West African country, being convicted of homosexuality brings years of prison, just as it does in Uganda, Afghanistan and 74 other nations. That's why Carine and Gertrude have fled to America, as have an increasing number of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people each year from countries including this month's Winter Olympics host, Russia. hey are the lucky ones who got away, but their freedom is not sealed. Not yet. Gertrude, 34, made it out of Cameroon in July and was granted asylum in the United States in December. Carine, 30, managed to escape to San Francisco in November with their 1-year-old daughter, Eldine - but although Carine won asylum Tuesday, the baby's future is uncertain. If she doesn't gain asylum status from immigration officials, she could be forced to go back to their homeland, where her future would be murky at best and tragic at worst. [bold] Rapes and beatings [/bold] Cameroon is where Gertrude was raped and pounded into a coma several years ago by a band of men who guessed she was a lesbian. It's where a relative who was furious upon discovering the couple's homosexuality threatened to put Eldine up for adoption, and while pummeling Carine dropped the baby on her head, causing damage that doctors are still assessing. "None of us can go back, for so many reasons," said Carine, who like Gertrude did not want her last name used out of fear that government officials or antigay activists in Cameroon will target their families. "But I do not believe that will happen. I believe in God, I know we are not demons for our homosexuality, and I know we are lucky." [bold] Tragic outcomes [/bold] Gertrude is lucky because she survived the attack that left her unconscious for five days. One of her friends was raped so savagely in the same assault that she died. A third friend beaten with them was left paralyzed. Carine is lucky because she also survived beatings, and because their baby - borne by Gertrude, through donated sperm - is alive and has a chance at health with the American medical system. "This baby, our baby, is the reason I am alive today," Carine said, patting Eldine's head. "When things were their hardest, I told myself, 'I can't fail. I must find a way over to America, for her sake.' " She was walking along Market Street as she talked, pushing the baby's stroller and holding hands with Gertrude. They chatted easily in French or English with thick French accents. But even though nobody stared, Carine was still nervous. "Kiss me," Gertrude said, grabbing Carine around the waist. "Nobody is looking. This is America!" Carine grinned and turned away. "You have to get used to what the new things are," she said. "These ways are good, but they are new." Gertrude laughed and nuzzled her cheek. An exchange like that could draw death at the hands of a mob in Cameroon, said their lawyer, Diana Kruze of Morrison and Foerster in San Francisco. She is handling the asylum case pro bono for the couple, who have no savings and no income, and are living in a homeless shelter. They fled with only the clothing they wore. [bold] Life or death [/bold] "You can be arrested in Cameroon, and in so many countries like it, just on suspicion of being gay," Kruze said. "Their choice really is: stay here and live, or go home and face death." Kruze applied for asylum status in December for Eldine with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services office in San Francisco. Officials there rejected her request for an expedited decision Jan. 18, which means the family may now have to wait months for a determination - which is typical for such requests. (More at link)
I like it so far. Almost as addictive as DOWNTON ABBEY.
He's not married. He states on the show that he goes to movies alone...he dresses immaculately. Any sightings around NYC?

I feel like the last one left at the party. Everyone has died or moved away. I've lived in the same rent-controlled apartment since 1975. I had so much fun in NY in the 1970s. I was young and carefree. I hung out at the greatest places -- got into Studio 54 a few times, shows at CBGB/OMFUG, amazing memories at Tunnel. The 1980s were even better. I don't know how I'm still here. Everyone moved away. Got families or different jobs. I walked into my apartment today, the same one I've had where all these good times happened, and I felt so achingly alone. I don't know who my neighbors are. The only mainstay is the old woman who lives downstairs, who has been old since I first moved in. When she dies I think I might seriously lose it. Nothing is the same. Times Sq. looks like a Pottery Barn catalogue. The Village and Soho look like suburban mini malls. Nothing is the same, it's worse.
...while the much inferior "Golden Girls" is still wildly popular. DW was a much better show in every way possible, yet it's now a distant memory, while GG mysteriously continues to suck in another generation of viewers. WTF!
Please let me know ASAP
A fan who shouted out her love for NPH in the midst of his performance was met with a response that she probably did not expect. He stayed in character and stated: "Im doing something up here, Mother-Fucker." Perhaps some people should restrict themselves to watching the afternoon showing of Disney productions.
He looks so much like his late brother Paul!
For those of you who watch.

Being posh doesn’t seem to have done his career much harm so far. But Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch has complained that his privileged background and elite schooling have left him typecast. The 35-year-old actor grew up in Kensington, West London, and was educated at Harrow – where fees are £30,930 a year – before studying drama at Manchester University. As a consequence, he claims he suffers from ‘class-typing’ in his career. Cumberbatch, who also starred in this year’s film version of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, said: ‘I was brought up in a world of privilege. ‘It can ostracise you from normal codes of conduct in society. ‘Being a posh actor in England you cannot escape the class-typing from whatever side you look at it. ‘I realised from quite early on that, although I wasn’t trying to make a class specialty of it, I was playing slightly asexual, sociopathic intellectuals.’ He added that the fact that he went to one of the oldest schools in the world ‘does not make me an archetypal product of that school’. Cumberbatch told Radio Times: ‘We all want to escape our circumstances, don’t we? Especially if you are an actor. ‘It is an imaginative process that gets my juices going. ‘The further you get away from yourself, the more challenging it is. Not to be in your comfort zone is great fun.’ The actor has won plaudits for his portrayal of a brilliant but emotionally dysfunctional Sherlock Holmes in the BBC1 series, which returns in January. Earlier this year he starred as Stephen Hawking in the award-winning BBC2 biopic about the acclaimed scientist, and as spook Peter Guillam in the updated film adaptation of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. He has also played ‘toff roles’ such as Scarlett Johansson’s unbearably pompous husband in The Other Boleyn Girl, and the arrogant Edmund Talbot in the BBC adaptation of William Golding’s epic To The Ends of the Earth. He will soon be back on the big screen as Major Jamie Stewart in Stephen Spielberg’s Hollywood version of the West End theatre hit War Horse, which is released in January. In the past Cumberbatch has said his parents – the actors Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton – sent him to Harrow in the hope that he might not follow in their professional footsteps.
I'd like to buy a new car in the next few months, but honestly, can't find a goddamn thing that's aesthetically appealing. Every new car - American, European, Japanese, whatever - seems virtually indistinguishable with their flattened egg shapes. I like the newly redesigned Beetles, but my partner bought one last year so that's out. He is urging me to get a Volvo C30 but to me they look like a dozen other hatchbacks. When did car design go so badly wrong. New SUVs are the ugliest goddamn things I've ever seen.
So what parts are true and what is totally exaggerated or just completely made up? Does anyone have a reference to the newspaper article (LA Times?) that did a page by page analysis of the book?
from another thread...How common was this? How involved were nuns and lay Catholics? Did Bostonians openly support the IRA?
Oh my, the stories just keep coming...
Business and Internet jargon ("There's no 'I' in team" and "This. So much this," respectively) are irritating in their own rights, but phrases said in day-to-day conversation can be the most grating:

If this doesn't make you sick... GALVESTON, TX — More than a dozen wedding guests were brutalized by police officers during a raid on a wedding party at a hotel. Cops fired tasers, used batons, and generously applied pepper spray to the guests of a bride and groom hours after their wedding. Among them was former pro-baseball star Brandon Backe, who said the shoulder injuries that he received from police caused his pitching career to end. After causing a gaping head wound, bruises, hair pulled out, a broken nose, and pepper spray on numerous individuals, the only reprimand any of the officers received was a paperwork violation. Interestingly, none of the 3 dozen cops reported any use of force. Wedding Crashers An event that should have been happy and memorable turned into violence and chaos when the Galveston Police got involved. A couple had just exchanged their vows and were celebrating with friends and family at the San Luis Hotel. Everything was fine until an off-duty police officer thought that he had witnessed the bride’s brother, Daniel “Cole” O’Balle, 19, walking outside with an alcoholic beverage in his hand. Suspecting an under-aged adult had consumed a beverage without government permission, and violated the “open container” prohibition law, he phoned the police department for backup. “I never thought I would have to go into a room and pray for my brothers life within hours of getting married.” Police officers arrived to confront Mr. O’Balle. Joe and Shannon Belluomini, guests of the wedding party, witnessed the altercation and said that O’Balle was complying with security. Nonetheless, “out of nowhere, mayhem started,” explained Joe Belluomini to KTRK. When the Belluominis tried to defuse the situation, they became targets themselves. Shannon Belluomini explained to KTRK that her husband was grabbed by the throat as Mr. O’Balle was assaulted. “The officer that had a baton in his hand started beating Cole with it. And then there just seemed like there were more and more officers.” As Shannon Belluomini witnessed Cole O’Balle getting pummeled with baton strikes, she tried to intercede to protect his head, which was gashed open and bleeding. “That’s when they grabbed hold of me and threw me backwards and basically encased me with mace. It felt like acid being poured over my face and my eyes and my chest.”
Bullock all the way. Jennifer Lawrence has very limited range and is just a wannabe who basically bought her oscar.
She'll be appearing Monday night on Bravo's WWHL along with RHoBH's Kim Richards.
Let's post pictures of amazing balls... goose-eggs, low-hangers, or just plain amazing sacks. Whatever, as long as the focus is on the balls!
I have been waiting for a long time and Amazon finally delivered it - it's been released. It's an account by a male hooker in Hollywood in the 40s and 50s. He's got the full story on Spencer Tracey and Kate (bearding, he had sex on numerous occasions with Spence) and many, many others. Gore Vidal has endorsed the book as true. Read about Gary Grant, the Duke of Windsor and many more. Shocking. I have written here many times about Tracey being gay - I got it from my friend who was one of Cukor's boys - so this validates exactly what he said.
Will it blow over or engulf Hollywood? Is this the L.A. version of Penn State?
Let's resurrect the Visible Penis Line thread!
Other offenses referenced in the revision of capital punishment regulations reportedly include "rape, adultery, sodomy, extramarital sexual relations for Muslims, insulting any verses of the Quran and Hadith, blasphemy, declaring oneself a prophet or non-Muslim, and murder."
I think he's cuter than his brother Seth. Former MadTV member, was in the classic football-bros-making-out sketch below. I was at an LA party with him recently and he pinged off the charts. Had dudes hanging around him, no women. 37, never married, no mention of a GF. Well?
So fucking hot
Say what you want, I think that we're in deep shit with those guys.
I really want to get fucked, but it hurt so much. I am thinking of putting in butt plug in the morning and leaving it in all day just to open things up. What say you?
I just watched "My Tutor". I'm still panting. Okay, let me take a relaxing position in this chair and allow the gossip to flow. What do we know about him? Give me everything!
Columbine is still having memorials 15 years later, and we can't forget to celebrate 9/11. I hate this trend.
is a ridiculous myth that completely detracts from the factual reality of the Son of God rising from the dead.
who do you think keeps his hole hairy? It may be trimmed, but not shaved.%0D\ %0D
He was one of our greatest Presidents. It's a travesty that MLK's birthday is a national holiday but, not JFK's. There also needs to be a memorial to him in Washington.
Are your parents coming over? Are your drunk, annoying in-laws coming over? Are you hosting? Are you roasting? Did the Easter Bunny leave you eggs? TELL.
How did you find him? Are the ones with knocked up wives more willing since they're not getting sex? Discuss!
In an intensive care unit in Memphis, a virus ravages the body of a 7-year-old who’s in heart and kidney failure. He vomits blood several times an hour as his family gathers in vigil. In a cabinet in Durham, North Carolina, there’s a drug that could likely help Josh Hardy, but the drug company won’t give it to him. They’re adamant that spending the time to help Josh and others like him will slow down their efforts to get this drug on the market. Helping Josh, they say, means hurting others. When asked how he will feel if Josh dies — and he’s in critical condition, so sadly that could happen soon — the president of the company that makes the drug doesn’t hesitate to answer. “Horrible,” said Kenneth Moch. He would feel horrible and heartbroken. But still, he said there’s no way he’s going to change his mind. There’s no way he’s going to give Josh this drug. ‘We’re begging them’ It’s called “compassionate use,” but sometimes it feels anything but compassionate. Here’s the way it works: According to the Food and Drug Administration, if someone has a serious or immediately life-threatening disease and has tried and failed other available treatments, they can ask a drug company for an experimental drug, one that they’re still studying and has not yet been approved by the FDA. Companies often say yes: The FDA approved 974 compassionate use arrangements in fiscal year 2013. But pharmaceutical companies often say no, as they did to Josh Hardy. “Our son will die without this drug,” said Todd Hardy, Josh’s father. “We’re begging them to give it to us.” So now, like many families, the Hardys have turned to the media, Facebook, and change.org to pressure the drug company to change its mind. Countless members of “Josh’s army” have responded with angry tweets to @chimerix, telling them to “open their hearts,” asking the executives how they can sleep at night. “Everyone is watching,” one tweeter warned the company. Others have tweeted out the e-mail addresses of the company’s board members. Chimerix executives say they’ve received physical threats. Moch, the company president, has read these tweets and said he is heartbroken, but the issue is complex and unsuitable for a 144-long character debate. At its very simplest, this is it: Chimerix is going full speed ahead to get the drug on the market hopefully by the end of 2016, and if they spend time and money on compassionate use cases, it would greatly hinder their effort to get the drug, brincidofovir, on the market and available to everyone. The company would have to dish out $50,000 per compassionate-use patient, since insurance doesn’t usually pay for experimental drugs, Moch said. And perhaps even more important than the money, it would divert manpower in this 50-person company, since they’d have to handle the requests and then get the patient’s records and follow up with them, as required by the FDA. “If this were just one patient wanting this drug, then this would be a very different question,” he said. “But it’s yes to all or no to all.” From 2009 to 2012, the company did give out the drug under compassionate use to 451 patients, Moch said, but at least at that time, the information gleaned from those 451 compassionate use patients was helpful to the Chimerix study and helped move the science along. But currently doctors don’t really learn very much, if anything, from compassionate use patients, so the patients don’t help get the drug to market. Beat cancer four times Josh’s journey began when he was diagnosed with a rare form of kidney cancer at 9 months old. Over the years, cancer turned up in his thymus, lung, and bone marrow, and each time Josh beat it. But a bone marrow transplant left Josh without much of an immune system, and in February doctors diagnosed him with an adenovirus that spread through his body. They gave him an antiviral drug, an intravenous form of brincidofovir, but it ravaged his kidneys.
I know they're not "typical" gay music, but they've always radiated an inclusive, warm sensibility. They also put on the best live show going. Been following them since Too Far To Care, between 97s/RhettSolo, must've seen them 20 times. (not to mention Rhett Miller may be the hottest guy in rock) Any other fans on DL?
Starts next week and I'm really excited! Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga, yeah they're good, but it's really Richard Harmon and Mike Vogel I'm looking forward to watching. From Carlton Cuse, the half of the Lost producers that DIDN'T write Prometheus.
Singer Andre Johnson cut off his penis and then jumped from the second floor. A statement was released that no drugs were involved.
Shouldn't he get some kind of GLAAD lifetime achievement award?
Baggage handlers at Pearson International in Toronto toss carry-on luggage that had to be gate checked on overcrowded plane from top of Jetway. In a way, what's the problem. Do we really expect these handlers to walk up and down the plane stairs when it is easier to throw the bags off the plane?
There was a thread about your favorite movie posters a while ago but now let's talk about awful movie posters. I hate the poster for "The Name of the Rose" with Sean Connery. The movie is a dark medieval mystery story, yet the poster makes it look like it's a Nancy Drew film or a Clue-type whodunit spoof.
Pretty fucked up, I think we can all agree.
This one frau got the okay to come in 11am now through the end of summer in order to accommodate some re-scheduling of her brat's camp schedule. Of course she still takes a full lunch break, spends all afternoon yapping with the other fraus, and doesn't stay past 5. A few months ago, when my cat was ill, I requested to leave an hour early for a week in order to get home in time to give her her medicine. I was denied, with the reason that if they make allowances for me, they'll have to do the same for other employees. If that's not a double standard, I don't know what is. These fraus who vomit up a few kids have it so easy and are master manipulators at using these brats as excuses for getting out of doing work. They actually don't get enough for credit for that. Bravo, fraus.
I wish she would come every 3 weeks, but she says 'nie' (she's Polish). She's so good I don't want to lose her.
The following editorial is presented by Tom Hassey, President and owner of KTUC Tucson, KCDI Oro Valley Tucson, and the Hassey Communications Group. Someone please explain to me what is going on in America when we see a son chew his mother's face off, and eat it. And just a few months ago, we had a man cut his son's throat, and decapitate his son. I could go on and on, but it is too gruesome. But we all know where this comes from. It is called "drugs." Let me ask you a question. If Omar Ghaddafi came over to America, and took a few thousand pounds of Ancient Orange, and poured it on our wheat farms in the midwest, we would find out who did it, go over to Libya and bomb the hell out of them. Yet, what do we think is going on in our country when millions of pounds of drugs are let into this country daily, and allowed to be distributed to our children? This is a tragedy that history will show is a real tragedy for America. We must take action, or else the consequences to the future of our country is in question. We must declare war on drugs. We must stop this by stopping the other countries from allowing it to be raised over there and brought in over here. If America took a more aggressive stand, it would stop. We see it going around us every day, and all of us are scared and feel helpless. Somehow our leaders must get the message: stop drugs from coming to America. And all of us, each and every one of us, must be aware of it and let our leaders know that we cannot stand drugs in America anymore. The opinion is that of the management of KTUC and CD Country. Opposing views are welcome. Or contact Tom Hassey at email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keflezighi was born in Eritrea, but his story is quintessential, polite American, from his pleased-to-meet-you smile to his colorful Skechers shoes. He came to the U.S. as a refugee from the war-torn African nation, after a brief stint in Italy, in 1987. The story is documented in his autobiography, “Run to Overcome,” a phrase that also defined the Patriots’ Day race and the last year in Boston. Video:
He has signed a contract with a gay porn studio. NSFW link.
If and when you get married (or even if you have gotten married) what surname will you be taking? Will you keep your own surname? Take your partner's surname? Hyphen both surnames? Or combine the two surnames and both of your legally CHANGING that one surname as your new surname (eg Smith + Foster would be Fostersmith) Vote below and then discuss what you will (or have done) to your surname)

Why he could be gay/bi: 1. He hangs with the "gay posse" Colton Haynes, Matthew Morrison, JC Chasez, Chace Crawford, Penn Badgely, etc. 2. He LOVES Les Mis 3. There've been rumors about him and Penn Badgely, him and Colton Haynes, etc. 4. Not linked with any girls recently. Why he could be straight: 1. He might hang with the "gay posse" simply because they all have the same manager? 2. There's just not much evidence on his Twitter that he's into guys or into gay interested, as opposed to Jonathan Bennett, who follows EVERY hot guy on Twitter. 3. He had a fucking BEARD recently (the hairy kind, not the female kind). I don't know any gay guys that grow facial hair! How come Shawn Pyfrom hasn't been acting lately? What has he been up to?
All this talk of Bryan Singer reminded me that in Shirley Temple's NYTimes obit, she had said a studio mogul once pulled his dick out when she was in his office alone with him, but all she did was giggle and so he put it back in and didn't bother her. But surely many child stars have been molested. Who? And by whom?
If you're over 50, how many good friends do you have? I'm over 50, and have 3 really good friends. I'd have more, but they keep dying. If you're under 50, enjoy your youth and please don't answer the poll and skew it. Feel free to answer in text, if you care to.
What do we think, DL?
by: Mrs Patrick Campbell (Hollywood veteran) "Miss Keanu, along with Tammy Cruise, are two of David Geffen's 'corn-hole' sucess stories, that is, Geffen corn-holed both of them and then made them stars!" I believe you Mrs. Patrick Campbell...about Keanu and Tammy and David. But from what Van Sant said, HE had a longterm secretive affair with Keanu so, do you think David was jealous?
Last night on the Oscars she looked gaunt, angry and unkempt. When the camera panned the audience, you could almost hear the bigwigs thinking, "Punch... delete". If she cut her foot open somehow, why didn't she just cancel? She made a spectacle of herself- and not in a good way. She's going to throw it all away. What's wrong with her?
Leading homophobe @BryanJFischer claims that the recent proposal by the California Supreme Court ethics advisory committee -- barring judges' membership in the Boy Scouts of America -- would end professional careers in the law "perhaps before it has ever begun." Of course, Bry-bry fails to mention (let alone comprehend) the rationale behind this proposal, that, as the San Francisco Chronicle points out: [quote]Banning scout membership would "promote the integrity of the judiciary" and "enhance public confidence in the impartiality of the judiciary"... and instead attempts to cast the matter as yet another example (in his words) of the "gay gestapo" being so "intolerant" that they -- we -- demand an end to the support of any institution that supports "sexual normalcy." Oh, if only that were the case. BryBry fails to mention the 21 other states "whose judicial ethics codes have antidiscrimination provisions that forbid judges from affiliating with the Boy Scouts," according the SF Chronicle. Because California is so, you know, weird. And then poor, embattled and suffering BryBry goes on to catalog a whole litany of innuendo, misconceptions, deceptions, and outright lies, all attributed to teh gey: [quote]Allowing gay scouts is foolish because it risks exposing young teens to older teen males who have a sexual interest in other boys. Scouts usually camp two to a tent. Any parent in their right mind want to send their 13-year-old boy on one of those trips? Which only goes to further the lying-rightwing meme which suggests that sexual orientation is mutable, which it is not. Or, perhaps no one has ever asked BryBry if he was or is tempted to jump the homo-fence and join our ranks (not that we would welcome him nor even allow him near us). Because, of course, this question leaves the lying-liars with little to say, not being tempted to even give the homosex a try, yet somehow thinking that were homos less persecuted, everyone would want to be gay. Or something. [quote]nothing is ever enough for the gay lobby. You can only appease them by giving them every single solitary thing they want, and even that is not enough. They are like the leech described in Proverbs 30:15: "The leech has two daughters; 'Give,' and 'Give,' You know what would be enough? Full equality. Case closed. [quote]Thus the Court, in a burst of wild-eyed and renegade activism, would violate every First Amendment right of every potential judge. Once again, lying rightwingers conflate the First Amendment prohibition on laws infringing on the free exercise of speech with being held accountable for what one says, and the ultimate accountability here, simply put, is to say that if you throw your lot in with the homophobes, you've disqualified yourself from what is, ostensibly, the impartial bench. The question really comes down to, do we want any standards of accountability for the folks who have the authority to take away your liberty, your freedom -- even your very life -- or not? Would it be acceptable to BryBry if a potential judge was a card-carrying member of the KKK, the Aryan Nation, or the Moonies? [quote]Exercise your right to the free exercise of a religion that rejects homosexuality? Disqualified. Hardly. Judges are free to belong to any church they want. They are not free, however, to impose their religious beliefs on those to whom they sit in jurisprudence, and that includes their belief, however sincerely held, that homosexuality aside and apart from the merits of the case presented have an impact on the matters at hand. I think what BryBry objects to here, in his skewed way of thinking, is that a judge would be swayed to favor homosexuals over heterosexuals in some way, which would, in my non-lawyer point of view, be grounds for a mistrial. Aren't judicial rulings thrown out as a matter of course based on judicial misconduct or misapplication of the law or precedent? cont'd...
What has she been up to lately ? Her CD 'Dive' is one of my favorite 'guilty pleasures'.
Looks good. And he does too.
I just discovered that ESPN Classic (a channel I would NEVER otherwise watch) seems to be re-running these classics from the 70s and 80s. Today I saw the swimming competition featuring Daniel J. Travanti, Mark Harmon, Heather Thomas, Cristina Raines, Telma Hopkins, Doug Barr, et. al. and featuring Broadway star Brian Stokes Mitchell! (From when he was on "Trapper John, MD," I assume.) And hosted by .... Howard Cosell!
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?
Anybody watch it? I remember my dad addictively watching the original Cosmos and I love anything that brings knowledge of science and history to the masses. I enjoyed the first episode, though I thought the "spaceship" was kinda silly. The CGI effects and animation were terrific, Neil is a great host and I love that, right out of the gate, it tells religion to stuff it.
Frankly, it's the sort of thing that Miggs would say.
A Nevada Republican legislator complained about MSNBC host Chris Hayes’ remarks regarding rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle, yet repeatedly referred to undocumented immigrants as “terrorists” during a combative interview Friday night. “I’m not saying I agree with Cliven Bundy, I’m saying the way this was handled was really suspicious,” state Assembly member Michelle Fiore (R) told Hayes. “When in the heck do we send our federal government with arms to collect a bill? When do we do that? When have we ever done that? I mean, literally, if we sent our federal government to the borders to secure them against terrorist crossing, hey, I got that. But they want to come here with arms because cows are grazing?” Fiore spoke with Hayes from outside Bunkerville, Nevada, where a crowd has formed in support of Bundy. The government holds that Bundy has refused to pay federal grazing fees for two decades, incurring a debt of more than $1 million after losing several court battles. After Bundy declared he would give the government a “range war,” the dispute led to a stand-off between his supporters — many of whom arrived with firearms — and officials from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), who later left the area. But Fiore accused the bureau of “coming up” with the fees in 1993 over unspecified damages, and cut Hayes off when he was about to mention that Bundy’s supporters were armed. Hayes also showed footage of one of them openly discussing being willing to kill or be killed by BLM officials during the stand-off. “Chris, do you want them coming to your house pointing guns at your wife and children? Is that okay with you?” Fiore asked. “Because it’s defnitely not okay with me, it’s not okay with Americans across the United States.” “Is it okay with you if every rancher in the country stopped paying their grazing fees?” Hayes asked. “No, it’s not okay,” Fiore responded. “Well, that’s the issue, right?” Hayes said. “Great,” Fiore replied. “Lien the cows. Lien the property. Don’t come here with guns and expect the American people not to fire back.” Fiore did not mention that conservative media outlets have been keen to cheerlead for future conflicts between the Bundy ranch and federal officials. But when Hayes asked Fiore if she would support any undocumented immigrants who felt it best to have their own armed supporters on hand to resist deportation efforts, Fiore did not answer. “Are we talking about cows, or are we talking about illegal immigration?” she asked, instead. “I’m talking about cows.” “I’m talking about human beings,” Hayes retorted. “Which seems to me even more important.” “Human beings that, thank God, did not get slaughtered,” Fiore told Hayes. “Cows did get slaughtered out here.” “What is gonna happen to those cows later on?” Hayes asked her. “Are you saying it’s okay to cruelly slaughter them because they’re raised for beef?” Fiore shot back. “Is that what you’re saying? I would retract those statements, because it’s pretty sad, Chris.” “Don’t put words in my mouth,” Hayes said. Watch the discussion, as aired on Friday on MSNBC, below.
Mine is too small (About 5 and quarter inches), and I don't like my circumcision scar.
Okay, it's a remake/reboot/whatever, but still... it premiered last night right after "Arrow" on the CW. I thought it pretty much rocked. I'll definitely keep tuning in. And of course, it's a CW show, so there was some hot male eye-candy for sure :-)

Video streaming service Netflix Inc said it intends to raise its subscription price for new customers by $1 or $2 a month to help the company buy more movies and TV shows and improve service for its 48 million global subscribers. Chief Executive Reed Hastings said Netflix had improved its selection of TV shows and movies and added original series like critically acclaimed Kevin Spacey thriller "House of Cards." With added revenue from higher prices, "we will be able to license much more content and deliver it in very high quality video," Hastings said on a webcast. The company, in a quarterly letter to shareholders, said it plans to impose "a one or two dollar increase, depending on the country, later this quarter for new members only." Subscription fees will rise in each of the 41 countries where Netflix operates, Hastings said in an interview. [bold]Existing customers will keep their current price for one to two years, he said.[/bold] Since they never keep their wordd, we can expect the existing customers to pay more by the end of the year.
Some highlights from the article, because it's simply too long to post in full: None of the paps have any respect for Dax Shepard & Kristen Bell “pedorazzi” thing: “It’s hilarious,” says Rick “Top Hat Rick” Mendoza. “Kristen comes up with a new hate word – pedorazzi – and goes on this campaign just as her movie Veronica Mars is coming out. What a coincidence! Now who’s manipulating who?” *Any celebrity that takes their kid to Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood knows that their kid is going to get pap’d. Halle Berry, one of the celebrities who instigated the anti-paparazzi legislation, used to take Nahla there. *TMZ completely changed the way the paparazzi operate, and not for the better. TMZ pays off pretty much everyone for info, from hotel managers to cops to airline employees (TMZ gets the passenger lists) to waitresses and salesclerks. *Photos of Kylie Jenner pay a lot more than photos of Mark Wahlberg. *What Vlad has to say about Kylie Jenner hiding her face: “Bitch, stop covering up. Let motherf–kers shoot you and get it over with,” mutters Vlad. “All this f–king attitude – ‘Ooh, I don’t wanna be shot.’ Someone like Angelina Jolie would just give us the shot – she’s beautiful.” Vlad doesn’t mention that Jenner is 16 and Jolie is 38. *But celebs know where to go to get pap’d. RS writes: “Celebs that hit the West Hollywood/Beverly Hills quadrant and places like the Urth Caffé are not exactly trying to keep a low profile; it’s sort of like if LeBron James went to an ESPN Zone and then whined about being hounded for autographs. Probably 90 percent of pap shots in L.A. are taken in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, and where Vlad trawls – the London, Urth Caffé, Sunset Boulevard Equinox, the playground near Coldwater Canyon – resembles a magical place called Pappyland, where the stars’ makeup is always perfect and their kids are freshly scrubbed and immaculate in brightly colored clothes.” *In 2007, when Britney Spears was breaking down hard, she would tip the paps to her whereabouts. Kim Kardashian would tip the paps in her early days. Denise Richards and Tori Spelling still do it too. *Tom Cruise’s publicist would tip the paps as to Tom and Katie Holmes’ whereabouts in the early days of their romance. The co-owner of Fame/Flynet says: “Sometimes publicists tip off the paps without telling their clients. They think their client needs the hit, but the star might think it’s beneath them, so they just leak the information without telling them.” *Angelina Jolie used the paps to rewrite her narrative. RS writes: “Before Angelina Jolie became a humanitarian, she was best known for wearing a vial of blood around her neck and kissing her brother. After she adopted seven-month-old Maddox from a Cambodian orphanage, Jolie carefully orchestrated a photo shoot with an approved pap that repositioned her image from troubled goth to responsible adult. After she started dating Brad Pitt, it was leaked to a photo agency that they would be taking their first big vacation at Kenya’s Diani Beach, not exactly a pap hangout. The pictures rocked the tabloid world. (Now the couple are among the toughest celebs to snap, vacationing where paps can’t get to without an AmEx black card and a helicopter.)” *Some celebs get paid to get pap’d: Lindsay Lohan has tipped off paps about her next stop in return for a gratuity. Ryan Reynolds is known to have an antagonistic relationship with the paparazzi, but recently he has been “captured” eating Chobani yogurt, carrying a Burger King bag, smiling at a Nespresso cafe and caressing a Can-Am motorcycle, all in apparently preplanned shots. *Figuring out what will sell: A good Gerard Butler shot earned Vlad only 60 bucks, but a crummy photo of Jessica Alba scored him $900 last month. Why? Alba is carrying a Christian Dior bag, and Christian Dior bought the picture. Other photos, like Jessie J, have almost no value in the States but will be huge sellers overseas, maybe worth a few thousand dollars.

Who is it? Why did this person fail to learn how to read and write?
No wonder he doesn't get any work.
Like 7" or more totally soft. You know it happens. Of course, they don't get much bigger after it firms up (though we know it doesn't get any shorter haha). But something about a man who is helplessly saddled with the proverbial "thigh slapper" for life is so hot.
Vote in the poll!
It really is a wonder drug isn't it? Anyone here use it?
Unless you've grown gills... And was it a cultural thing, sitting in your seat and waiting for further instructions, as the ferry sinks?
We haven't had one of these threads in a while. Yea, they're fake but still fun if done well. I'll get us started with a pic of Michael Phelps.
Has anyone done this? Particularly has anyone here ever done a total reboot where you changed your life and initiated this diet? PLEASE, I'm not looking for advice on various diets of what worked for you outside of this and not in need of various suggestions on any weight loss or diet program outside of this. I'm simply interested in those here who've adopted a Mediterranean diet and how you went into it, and what a source for the easiest recipes might be to begin. Did I mention I don't spending a lot of time in the kitchen? ;-) Thanks everyone
And not just Christianity, too. All of it. Even spirituality is just stealth religion. Atheism is the only sane belief system.
He's hot, but that basket seems to be a little on the underwhelming side.
I'm 30 years old and I enjoy a beverage. Not the kind with an umbrella in it, but red wine, gin, the occasional mezcal. I lived for years with a non-drinking partner and don't go hog wild. In fact I'm non-judgmentally amazed by the ability of so many of my friends to take down four or more drinks at dinner alone. But the morning after I've had a few, I'm a bit puffy and ruddy the next morning, even without any other signs of hangover. I try vitamin C tablets, aspirin, lots of mineral water the night of, and Epsom salt baths, cold compresses the next morning...but what else helps?
Zachary Quinto was on the Howard Stern show today. You can read the full article of his interview in the link. Just click on Wednesday's show. A few things that were mentioned was he made less than $1.5 million for the first Star Trek movie. He's currently dating a model but he doesn't go by looks when selecting a date. He doesn't shave his chest but he sometimes trims his pubes. Also Howard asked him if he dated Colton Hayes and he said no.

As Page Six and Entertainment Weekly are reporting, Harris stayed in character in the midst of one performance after a female fan yelled out, "I love you, Neil!"
I didn't know that this was humanly possible; but after researching it's actually pretty common! I'm still not buying it though. -30 degrees, low oxygen levels...I think he hid in the cargo section or something. Top notch security that we have here, eh?
Would you wear one?
What CAN'T women do with their gines?
How big a deal was it?
There’s a boy band battle brewing! Joey Fatone from *NYSYNC was recently on Huffington Post and claimed that the Backstreet Boys are going back on tour because, “they just need the money.” “I feel like they just need the money,” he explained. “No offense, guys. But I’m saying if you think about it, it’s like, why are you coming back out again?” He added that *NYSYNC are too busy with “their own lives,” and “doing their own thing,” which would make a reunion tour difficult. According to Rob Shuter of VH-1’s “The Gossip Table” this theorizing didn’t sit well with Nick Carter from Backstreet Boys who sent off a flurry of tweets including one that read, “I’m proud of who we are and love what we stand for. Truthfully its about not letting our fans down. Sorry bro but you have us all wrong.” Another tweet read, “Now let me go back to enjoying my honeymoon.” Carter married Lauren Kitt last weekend in Santa Barbara with a Moroccan-inspired theme.
With a new cold war beginning and most of the world hating Russia as it's economy tanks? Maybe he's thinking he could have picked a better country? Why the fuck did he flee to China and Russia anyway? The fact he fled to these two countries is bizarrely ironic considering he's claiming he didn't do it out of espionage but out of a need for freedom of information. Anybody think he will eventually turn himself in so he can fight the charges, or will be continue to be a pussy and cower in that shithole of a country?
I watch the Gaither Reunion shows from time to time and I have to say there seem to be a number of flamers in the gospel world. Mark Lowry, for one. Who else?
Could you ever love a man like me?
what does this mean that I can borrow up to 120% of the purchase price? For the life of me I cannot figure out what this means.. Or why someone would want to do this?
Let's discuss them here. Unfortunately, they don't get much, if any, shine here in the States, but there are a bevy of hot ones in the Great White North. I'm particularly fond of bubble butted Yannick Bisson and sexy Steve Bacic.
Reality check. Things need to change.
They've finally released 1964's [italic]Where Love Has Gone[/italic], a melodrama with the triple threat of Bette Davis, Susan Hayward and Joey Heatherton as three generations of women in a socially prominent San Francisco family. It's an expensive-but-cheap ripoff of the Lana Turner/Cheryl Crane murder case, and while it's not a top-shelf classic, it was well worth waiting for. If you want to see where Helen Lawson came from, it's this role, where Susan Hayward chews the scenery and the drapes as an internationally renowned sculptor AND nymphomaniac, whose daughter Joey stabs her lover to death with a sculptor's chisel. Watching Hayward wield a welding torch wearing goggles and a yellow chiffon scarf is priceless, but not as good as the flashback scenes, where the fortyish Hayward is cast as a twentyish World War II wife (with the same red cast-iron hairdo and smoker's wrinkles).

DeForest Kelley as Hayward's pipe-sucking agent: "So the old Valerie Hayden is back. Sculptor. Painter. ALLEYCAT!" Mike Connors: "You're not a woman %E2%80%93 you're a DISEASE!"

An earthquake with a magnitude 7.5 struck off Papua New Guinea on Saturday and a tsunami warning was briefly issued for the Pacific Island nation and neighboring Solomon Islands, but there were no immediate reports of damage. The quake, at a depth of 10 km (6 miles), struck 68 km southwest of Panguna on the island of Bougainville, the U.S. Geological Survey said, revising down the magnitude from an initial 7.8. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center later cancelled a tsunami warning for Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands and there was no threat to neighboring Australia or across the Pacific Ocean. At least six strong tremors have hit near Bougainville in the past week or so, including a magnitude 7.3 on April 11, but there have been no reports of major damage. "Certainly it has been very active, more active than usual," said Jonathan Bathgate, a seismologist at Geoscience Australia. "(The spate of earthquakes) is relieving some pressure on this faultline, but we can't rule out another large earthquake." The quake would have been felt strongly on Bougainville and nearby islands, but given its position on the so-called "Pacific Ring of Fire" where earthquakes are frequent, extensive damage was unlikely, Bathgate said. However, a local tsunami may have been generated, he added. Readings showed a small wave had been generated, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. In 1998, a magnitude 7 earthquake triggered a tsunami that smashed into villages near Aitape on Papua New Guinea's north coast and killed more than 2,000 people. Resource-rich Bougainville, which neighbors the Solomon Islands, fought a war for independence from Papua New Guinea in the 1990s, leading to the closure of the Panguna copper mine, majority-owned by Rio Tinto Ltd. Bougainville is now an autonomous region of Papua New Guinea.

According to new book "Forcing The Spring", which provides a detailed account of the struggle for marriage equality.
This is a new ABC-Family series about a lesbian couple (one white one black) raising the white woman's son from a previous marriage, two Hispanic adopted twins, one a boy and the other a girl, who had been fosters before they were adopted, and two white foster kids who are brother and sister. The older foster kid just got out of Juvie. The white woman is a cop and in the pilot her new partner is her ex-husband, the father of her son. (Yeah--that would so happen). Oh--And the family name is Foster. Get it? Despite this ridiculous set-up (and despite being produced by J-Lo) the show is pretty good so far. The lesbian parents' relationship is realistic. The elder son is attractive in a geeky way and the male twin is stunning. The show was created by Peter Paige (Yes, that Peter Paige.) I did a search and nothing showed up so please don't yell at me if there is already a thread on this.

We were better off when we were just the gay rights movement and none of these other freaks were parasitically piggybacking off of us to get rights for themselves. We would have gotten our rights 30 years ago if it hadn't been for bisexuals and transgenders, the real self-loathers in our community. Bisexuals are self-loathing because they add fuel to the fire of homophobia, mainly their own. Why else do they usually marry the opposite sex while screwing the same sex on the side? And Tom Daley was never, ever bi. Anyone who believes that probably also still believes in Santa Claus. Transgenders are some of the biggest homophobes I've ever met. Just because you're gay and your Gender Identity Disorder is so severe, it causes you to want to mutilate your body in order to conform to heteronormative standards, it does not give you the right to make the homophobic and vaguely racist comments you made about RuPaul. These two groups have been a pair of albatrosses around our collective necks for decades, and it's time we took them off.

A man's dick is a beautiful thing that gives both life and pleasure. And I'm tired of hearing people call other people "dick" as an insult, i.e. with phrases like "You're a dick!" or "What a dick move!" It's anti-male and vaguely homophobic.

The woman writes "Recently, a “man” claiming to be transgender, who had not yet begun physical treatments, was permitted by our local Y to use the women’s locker room. There are no secure change rooms. The person they allowed in was not courteous and stared at me while I struggled out of a wet bathing suit. He was naked, had an erection and playfully asked ‘do you come here often?’" She said the incident happened “a couple of years ago” in the late afternoon in the women’s locker room of the Toronto Y on Sheppard Ave. She said she shared her concerns with the Y manager at the time but felt she was not taken seriously. She said the branch manager contacted her in the fall after she sent her letter and she was again contacted by a senior executive of the Y following publication of the Star column. YMCA spokesman Celecia Partap confirmed this week that the Y did receive a similar letter in the fall from “a former female member” about an incident that was “historical in nature.” Partap said the Y has no record of any formal complaint about the incident the woman described and that the general manager of the Y where the woman used to swim had no recollection of a past complaint.
According to The Post and Courier, the unveiling attracted a significant number of dignitaries, including Attorney General Eric Holder. But both Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C., the gay man) and Tim Scott (R-S.C., the black man) declined to attend, as did Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), who represents Charleston. All three had been invited to attend. A staffer for Scott went in the senator's place.

David Bailey captures another side of the Queen in birthday portrait
Tiger Mom's head is going to explode when she finds out a black boy got accepted to every Ivy League college. Beat that, bitch. " He has a straight-A average. He scored in the 99th percentile on his SAT. And he’s a shot putter, viola player and a cappella singer. Meet Kwasi Enin, the boy genius from Long Island who’s been accepted into all eight Ivy League schools. His extraordinary achievement was the talk of the education world Tuesday, but the 17-year-old aspiring doctor took all the attention in stride. “It has been a little crazy, but I never really feel overwhelmed because I love what I do and I have great support,” Enin told the Daily News. The senior at William Floyd High School in Mastic turned instant celebrity after it was revealed he hit the Ivy League jackpot. He was profiled on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and his name was trending on Twitter. But all the adulation isn’t going to Enin’s head. “That’s not Kwasi,” said his uncle Edmund Bimpong. “He’s low-profile, very high humility.” A first-generation American whose parents are from Ghana, Enin figured applying to all eight elite schools would improve his chances of getting into one of them."
Rome (CNN) -- The Roman Catholic Church will declare the late Pope John Paul II a saint, the Vatican announced Friday. Pope Francis signed the decree Friday morning, the Vatican said. John Paul was pope from 1978 until his death in 2005, and was in a way the first rock star pontiff, drawing vast crowds as he crisscrossed the globe. At his funeral, thousands of pilgrims gathered in St. Peter's Square and chanted "Santo subito" -- Sainthood now! The Polish-born pope was fast-tracked to beatification and became "the blessed" John Paul II barely six years after his death, the fastest beatification in centuries. An inside look at life as the pope Pope John XXIII, who convened the Vatican II council in the 1960s, will also be declared a saint, the Vatican said No date has been announced for the canonization ceremony. Pope John Paul II, the third-longest serving pope in history, died in April 2005 at the age of 84. He had suffered from Parkinson's disease, arthritis and other ailments for several years before his death. During his tenure, he became the most widely traveled pope in history and canonized more saints than any other pope. His papacy included a lot of firsts. He was the first modern pope to visit a synagogue and the first pope to visit Cuba. There are essentially three steps to becoming a Catholic saint after death. First, the title "venerable" is formally given by the pope to someone judged to have exhibited "heroic virtues." Second, a miracle must be attributed to the deceased person's intervention, allowing beatification. Canonization -- or sainthood -- requires a second attributed miracle. In 2010, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI approved John Paul's first reported miracle: a French nun supposedly cured of Parkinson's disease. Sister Marie-Simon-Pierre, a nun whose order prayed to the pope after he died, said she was cured of the disease, an ailment that also afflicted John Paul. The second miracle reportedly occurred in Costa Rica, where a woman said she recovered from a severe brain injury thanks to the intervention of John Paul, sources told CNN Vatican analyst John Allen. Patrick Kelly, executive director of the Blessed John Paul II Shrine in Washington, explained the church's process for investigating reported miracles. "A team of doctors first examine the miracle. Secondly, the team of theologians look at the miracles, and then they discuss amongst themselves the legitimacy and all the facts surrounding the miracles," he said. Despite being so beloved, John Paul didn't live up to expectations at a crucial moment in the church's history, as revelations of sexual abuse scandals involving thousands Catholic priests erupted across the world in the early 2000s, critics say. In the United States alone, the scandal involved more than 16,400 victims or alleged victims and cost the church $2.6 billion in settlements, therapy bills, lawyers' fees and care for priests removed from ministry, according to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. John XXIII was famed for calling the Second Vatican Council in 1962, which ushered in great changes in the Roman Catholic Church's relationship with the modern world. He was pope from 1958 to 1963, and was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2000.
Someone needs to tell him he's lousy
I hate raisins. Can I leave them out or is that unheard of?
Berlin has buried every trace of the Third Reich—with one big exception. During a recent week in Berlin, I found myself, again and again, doing Berlin things. There’s really no way around it, in Berlin. On my first evening, a friend took me after midnight to the voluminous abandoned basement of an office building that, as far as I could tell, sat dormant 364 days a year, but this night was the site of a roving weekly gay dance party called Horse Meat Disco. The DJ spun Italian disco; bartenders sold artisanal sparkling juice. I visited the Museum der Dinge—the Museum of Things—which displays collections of mundane objects: ashtrays, faucets, sardine tins, household keys, cellphones, candlesticks, lightbulbs, sieves, soap dishes. I saw Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo play at the Lido, formerly a movie theater that was one of the few cinemas in East Berlin to show Western films, and came across a store that sold Sonic Youth winter hats. I heard English spoken often, but almost exclusively by nonnative speakers. I subleased an apartment connected to a clothing boutique that sold a shirt made out of pants: the collar was the unzipped fly; the sleeves were the pant legs. Over my futon hung a life-size photograph of a naked woman being branded on one ass cheek. The neighborhood restaurants were Turkish, Syrian, Moroccan, Sudanese, French, Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, and Cantonese. I didn’t come across a single schnitzel. I ate matzo-ball soup and a pastrami sandwich at a restaurant that, modeling itself after Katz’s Delicatessen, aspires to bring “classic” New York food culture to Berlin. The restaurant is situated in a classroom of a former school for Jewish girls. The school closed in 1942, when most of its students and teachers were sent to concentration camps to be tortured and murdered. The pastrami was gross: slippery with fat and garishly pink. Berlin is caught between the future and the past, which is not the same as being of the present. Berlin is caught between the future and the past, which is not the same as being of the present. The city has solved, for instance, many of the problems that will continue to bedevil metropolises for decades to come. Urban planners visit from around the world to study its vast, efficient public-transportation system, its elaborate network of bicycle lanes (more trips are made by bike in Berlin than in any other European city), its generous integration of parks and canals, and its imaginative transformation of industrial and manufacturing sites. Because few buildings survived the war, Berlin has become a showroom for architects like Rem Koolhaas, Norman Foster, Richard Rogers, Zaha Hadid, and Frank Gehry, whose sleek glass-and-metal hexagons, ziggurats, hyperboloids, and orbs possess the cold, austere gigantism that science-fiction films have taught us to expect from the dystopian cities of the future. Yet the past constantly asserts itself. Berlin is a nostalgic city, its nostalgia extending to every part of the past except its own recent history. You see this in the quantity and quality of its museums; in its many tributes to Prussian glory, which include the Brandenburg Gate, the Victory Column, and statues of Frederick the Great and Otto von Bismarck; and in the ubiquity of stores dedicated to selling magazines, books, vinyl records, and vintage clothing. While it’s impossible, especially during the uniformly gray winter months, not to feel haunted by the knowledge of the atrocities that were plotted and carried out in the city, it’s also nearly impossible to see any traces of that history. The few Third Reich monuments that survived the war have been razed or repurposed to prevent them from becoming neo-Nazi shrines. Hitler’s bunker is now covered by a parking lot. His chancellery has been replaced by apartments and Peking Ente, a Chinese restaurant. Five thousand Soviet soldiers are buried beneath the lawns of Treptower Park; 2,000 more lie under the Tiergarten.

I was a regular on their forums (for a?) through the 90's and into 2000's but as they stopped updating and caring it became just a few die hard regulars and I stopped going as much. Maybe I'd visit once every few months, the last time was probably a month ago. Just had an email from a pal I met through there and he said it was gone. I went and it looks like it's no longer there, or did the domain just expire? Anyone know what's going on?
Is there a statute of limitations on hate crimes? In a letter dated November 24, 1975, INS denied the couple's petition with a single, defamatory sentence. "You have failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots," read the letter, signed by the INS district director. The couple appealed the decision for 10 years, ultimately losing their battle for legal recognition and Sullivan's permanent residency in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. But Sullivan's motion, filed today in Los Angeles, seeks to reverse that discriminatory decision and give Sullivan access to the survivor benefits that any heterosexual immigrant would be granted after the death of their lawfully married U.S. citizen spouse.
Dana McCallum, a senior engineer at Twitter who speaks and writes about women's and transgender-rights and technology issues, was arrested Jan. 26 and booked into County Jail on suspicion of five felonies, according to the Sheriff's Department. McCallum, 31, who was born a male, openly identifies as a female and whose legal name is Dana Contreras, was charged Jan. 29 with five felonies, including three counts of spousal rape, one count of false imprisonment and one count of domestic violence, according to the District Attorney's Office. She has since pleaded not guilty.
Isn't that the gayest question ever for straight men to ask one another?
Portia de Rossi 'didn't want' to be a lesbian. The 40-year-old actress was very nervous about publicly coming out, something she did in 2005, because she always thought that being gay was 'strange' and also because she didn't know any famous women who were openly lesbians. 'I just didn't want to be a lesbian,' she said in a revealing interview on The Conversation With Amanda De Cadenet. 'I'd never met one for a start and I just thought they were strange and that they hated men and they were very serious and I had these ridiculous images in my head and there were no out celebrities or politicians or anybody that I could look to and go, "Oh, I could be like that". 'There was nobody that I could say, "I could date her and I want to be like her." 'I just kind of thought I don't want to live like this. I don't have to, I don't need to, I just shut down the emotional life.' Not coming out had a very negative effect on Portia's life. The actress battled different eating disorders while she was starring in Ally McBeal from 1998 to 2002, and she believes they were symptoms of her hiding her sexuality. She explained: 'The thing that kept me company was my eating disorder. It was like a lover, it was like somebody who never ever left me. Like a thought that would always keep me excited, interested and focused. It's adrenaline.'
Just catching up here and watching on DVD. There really should be more homosex on Downton. With Thomas dressing Lord Grantham I would think Thomas would be taking care of His Lordship's cock as well. And Jimmy's cock is begging for attention. And of course, I volunteer to check to see if Matthew's loads are still working at full capacity.

Whenever I watch "Valley of the Dolls," I always am baffled by what possible kind of musical with this title would feature its star wearing a gown and diamonds while under a giant revovling multi-colored Plexiglass mobile singing "I'll Plant My own Tree." Was it supposed to be a musical about modern art? Or about gardening? Why was it called "Hit the Sky"?
