I've been catching lots of previews from ABC, for Viola Davis in [italic]How to Get Away with Murder[/italic], and from CBS, for Tea Leoni in [italic]Madame Secretary[/italic], for the upcoming new television season (2014-15). Are you looking forward to any of the television networks' brand-new series?
Here we go -- again!
I am in my early 30s but terrified I'll never save enough to live in retirement! I've watched the Suze Orman Show, and she's amazing, but I can't figure out the big picture. Sure, I know I'm supposed to save in my 401K, etc, but how much show I save? How much do I need for retirement? How do I know if I'm saving enough before it's too late???
She's my new fixation!!!!
What's new in Freddie Smith land? Scene partners, personal trainers, delivery boys....who knows? Does Freddie have Domino's on speed dial? Are moobs a thing? And....go!
..because then I start looking for clues from the very beginning. When I saw The Sixth Sense, for example, the minute the boy says, "I see dead people," I knew the twist was that the Bruce Willis character was dead. When I saw The Crying Game, I immediately knew the twist was that she was a he.
She's had exactly one movie hit: BASIC INSTINCT in 1992--yes, over 20 years ago. Sure, she got an Oscar Nom for CASINO, but did anyone actually see that? Every movie she's in nowadays is an automatic flop--you'd think producers would know that by now before hiring her. Has anyone else been able to extend stardom so long with nothing to back it up (except Kim Kardashian, of course)?

When I first came out of the closet, I was emotionally vulnerable and desperate to believe there is actually something called the gay community to embrace me. I went to Chelsea (NY) because that was gay-central. I was utterly ignored--not buff, not gorgeous, not wearing the right clothes, etc., I was invisible to them. I got really depressed, thinking I was rejected by, not only the gay-hater but gays. It took me a while to get over that funk despite continued rejection from Chelsea types. Chelsea boys seem to be able to define gay beauty for the world. First it was buff. As they grew older and couldn't keep up the gym routines and eyebrow plucking, and suddenly bears with pot bellies became hot. Now, it's daddies as they've all gotten older. Fast forward a decade or so, and so many of these same guys have facial wasting from AIDS. They hit on me all the time because they are desperate for the same kind of attention I wanted. They now see how hard rejection can be on the soul. Well, Fuck You.
Did anyone see the film, or read the book? Do you think, Travis Walton, was really abducted? Do you think he believes that he was, but he actually wasn''t? If so, where was he when he disappeared? The film always used to scare the shit out of me!
Howard Stern made a public apology to Robin Williams on his show a few days ago. Apparently he treated Robin Williams like $hit in a 1986 interview. The archived interviews on YouTube have all been edited so there's no talk of Balushi's death, his affair with the nanny, comedy, etc. Did anyone here hear the interview when it originally aired? The edited Interview on YouTube is unbearable to listen to. Howard's voice is different, they talk about absolutely nothing, and Howard inserts commercials everywhere.
Should we be alarmed?

I have a question for my fellow paying members since we're the only ones who have the *PRIVILEGE* of posting right now anyway: What was your most successful thread you've ever created? Mine was a simple thread linking to a vid of MTV Real World's Dustin Zito getting it on with another guy. Somehow that thread grew legs and is still limping along today, years later, with 421 replies. Yours?
What was so special about it that it was "must see TV"? What were your favorite episodes? Guest stars? Regular cast? I don't remember much about it, I was just a little kid, but I hated the Captain's daughter and wanted to fall madly in love with ship's photographer Ted McGinley.
Let's say I came into a significant amount of funds, and wanted to create a scholarship with a portion of it for LGBT students interested in my professional field. Any DL advice on how to do it, pitfalls to avoid, etc? TIA

I had a huge crush on Frank. We hung out some, but he never had any interest in me. Cute and funny, he had tons of friends. He invited me to a holiday party he was having in his apartment. So excited to spend an evening with him, I arrived with a bottle of wine. He opened the door, smiled and said, "Oh, I forgot I had invited you."

Conservative Actor Kevin Sorbo: Ferguson’s Black Protesters Are Acting Like The ‘Animals’ They ‘Truly Are’ As people voice their reactions about the fatal shooting of Michael Brown and the resulting Ferguson protests, Facebook has become home to many vile, racist posts (like this one – from a Missouri cop). Joining the hateful conversation is conservative actor Kevin Sorbo, who took to Facebook this week to call black Ferguson protesters “animals” and “losers.” In the post, Sorbo wrote: “Ferguson riots have very little to do with the shooting of the young man. It is an excuse to be the losers these animals truly are. It is a tipping point to frustration built up over years of not trying, but blaming everyone else, The Man, for their failures. It’s always someone else’s fault when you give up.” Sorbo continued, saying that Brown’s death is a “Reminder to the African Americans ( I always thought we just Americans. Oh, well.) that their President the voted in has only made things worse for them, not better.” [source] Sorbo also blamed the media for agitating protests and making things worse. “The media promotes chaos to boost their pathetic ratings. We should shut them all off and watch clips on the internet only when republished under fair use by a conservative media watchdog group.”

CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. — Officials say four firefighters were injured — one critically — when a fire truck’s ladder came in close contact with a high-voltage power line at Campbellsville University in Kentucky Thursday morning. According to Campbellsville University President Michael Carter, the marching band was being sprayed with water by two Campbellsville firefighters in the bucket. The event was for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge near one of the university’s football and baseball facilities just before 11:45 a.m. A photo taken by witness Tyler Arterburn shows the firetruck’s aerial ladder hovering over the challenge participants as firefighters inside the ladder’s bucket spray them with water. After the water spray ended, the students left and the firefighters began moving back the ladder, according to Campbellsville Police Chief Tim Hazlette. This is when the bucket at the top of the ladder came close enough to power lines to shock the firefighters with electricity. There were two men inside the bucket and two on the ground. Captain Tony Grider, 41, and firefighter Simon Quinn, 22, were inside the bucket. They were taken to Taylor Regional Hospital and then transferred to the University of Louisville Medical Center Burn Unit. “One is in critical condition, the other is fair. Both have been admitted to the hospital’s Level 1 burn unit,” said KentuckyOne Health spokesperson, David McArthur. Two other firefighters, Captain Steve Marrs, 37, and Alex Johnson, 28, received electric shocks when they tried to lower the bucket and an electric current traveled down the extended ladder, said Hazlette. Marrs and Johnson were taken to Taylor Regional. Marrs was released and Johnson was admitted for observation, said Hazlette. The incident remains under investigation but according to Hazlette, the ladder never touched the nearby power lines. “From talking with the power company, if you get within a distance of 3 to 4 feet, the energy that surrounds the high-voltage wire will actually arc over another object, in this case being the personnel occupying the bucket,” said Hazlette.
From the "Richard Dawkins: It's 'Immoral' Not To Abort If Foetus Has Down's Syndrome" thread: He got one thing wrong: they shouldn't try again. The vast majority of people should not reproduce in a world of dwindling resources, continuing environmental damage and overpopulation. Those without the means or capacity (mental, emotional or physical) to rear children should not reproduce. I would support programs that provide that those without the means or capacity to rear children agree to sterilization in exchange for any government benefits they receive. The world's population should be strictly limited and controlled in light of environmental concerns, population and resources to support the population and future generations.

Great list from BuzzFeed with some titles I've never even heard of - the Hollywood series is all on YouTube though and sounds fantastic. Top of my wish list that they don't mention is Ken Russell's The Devils... Oh and Looking For Mr Goodbar There is a weird span of 80s-90s stuff that seems to be disappearing though, since it came out on VHS and that's it. What else?

He was the star of most of those Ray Harryhausen special effects movies ("The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad," "The Three Worlds of Gulliver," etc.) and did some other TV and movie work. Kind of hot, and definitely one of us. [quote]He retired from acting in 1978 and moved to San Francisco, where he ran a clothing and antiques shop. He died in his sleep in San Francisco on July 5, 2007 at the age of 81. He was survived by his partner of 46 years, Tom Nicoll.
Do they still give these in school? I took them in high school (and before) in the '60s. You had to answer a bunch of questions about what you enjoyed doing, then I guess they compared your answers to those of people in various occupations. The tests were supposed to determine what career you were suited for. Mine usually came out "librarian" or "banker." (I didn't go into either field) So are they still around, or has something replaced them? And for those of you who took them and remember, what were your results, and what occupation(s) did you end up in?
Has any Datalounger ever been there? The NYC French restaurant sounds like a place Norma Desmond would go to. "I am not a bit surprised on the fact I am the first one to review this restaurant. I believe it's because there aren't any Yelp members who are in their late 60's." "Going into the restaurant I felt like I was stepping through a timewarp. Wow I knew 1950 went somewhere, we found it! " "As someone noted, the first thing you notice when you walk in is the smell of an old closet. Then you notice a table with desserts standing right by the coat check, all desserts are open" "I looked around some more and noticed that most of the clientele were eligible for Medicare."

Former friends 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather show us how it's done! [quote]There was a time when 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Jr were best brofriends forever, but their bromance ended after a business deal between the two went bad two years ago. Since then, 50 Cent has made it one of his life goals to troll the shit out of Floyd and he continued to troll him hard on Instagram yesterday. While celeb whores keep challenging each other to that Ice Bucket Challenge, Ten Dimes challenged his ex-BFF to something else. A bunch of ice falling on Floyd isn’t a challenge at all, because he’s been hit in the skull so many times that he’s lost all feeling in his head and face. So 50 dared Floyd to complete a really challenging challenge. 50 dared Floyd to read. Apparently, the noted lady beater has the reading skills of Kendull Jenner and this Christmas he’ll probably find a copy of Hooked on Phonics in his stocking. Floyd reads about as good as 50 Cent throws. On Instagram yesterday, 50 challenged Floyd to read one page from a Harry Potter book. If Floyd can do it without stopping and starting again, 50 promised to donate $750,000 to any charity of his choice. 50 later changed up the challenge when he realized that maybe Harry Potter is a little too advanced for Floyd. 50 is allowing Floyd to read “Cat In The Hat” and Jimmy Kimmel agreed to host the “ALS/ESL challenge” on his show. Oh, 50, that glorious piece of shit asshole. After 50 Cent challenged Floyd to read, Power 105′s The Breakfast Club played a clip of Floyd struggling to read a handful of words. That’s some Jordan Catalano shit. What do you think? Floyd hasn’t publicly responded to 50 Cent yet, but there’s a rumor on Tumblr and Twitter that he tweeted (and deleted) this: "I SEE YOUR $750K & RAISE YOU A MIL IF YOU CAN POST A VID OF UR SON SAYING HE LOVES YOU" Floyd can’t read a book, but he can read a bitch.[/quote]
No, I'm not Michael K or any of his minions.
Rupert Everett, of course, has freely admitted prostituting when he was younger.\ \ We know Steven Antin (of THE GOONIES) used to be Joey Stefano''s keptboy, and that Ted casblanca was Bruce Vilanch''s when he was young.\ \ There are many rumors Robert Gant from QAF used to be a WeHo kept boy before he made it (sort of) big as an actor.
It's like they're struggling to break free.

Yes, that's my kneejerk opinion after having spent the last three months having to be there for business. In the spirit of full disclosure yes, I'm a recent resident of New York, but I'm originally from a small city down south, so I'm not trying to throw "flyover state" type of shade. (I live in Boston now). Yes, there are wonderful people here, and the area is very pretty, in the summer which is about 3 months out of the year. I've been visiting the area the last two years, during all two seasons they have. I've been there almost non-stop the last few months and reserved judgement until I couldn't take it anymore. But it's the people in general, or most of them who've left such a negative impression on me. An area, two cities I expected would be generally full of friendly, welcoming people is infested by wanna-be hipster types, trying really, really hard to be a sort of Portland OR or Brooklyn or Austin. That's the primary takeaway: Most of the under-50 crowd in the cities are full of people who've apparently become so taken by the 'hip', creative and independent cultures so prevalent in places like NYC and such, they've become convinced they've become it. Think lots of horned-rimmed glasses on late 20s-late-30s guys, lots of going on about the "arts" district and their tech hubs (which really don't exist at all) and their art scene, etc. etc. A sort of snarky, pretentious, poseur crowd but it's not just a passing whiff of it, both towns simmer in the stench of it. It's mostly a frozen wasteland with a bit of a regional economy. The people in both cities snark and mince about the people who live in the outlying areas.. Not the burbs, but the small town Minnesota folks. They're awful Datalounge. Awful, awful people and I want to be done with them!
What should I see and do? Where to dine? What is the best beach and drinking spot?? I am staying at the White Barn in Kennebunkport.
Mary Kay Fualaau (formerly Mary Kay Letourneau) brothers worked for both Bush Presidents. Her brother, John Patrick Schmitz, was the deputy counsel to President George H. W. Bush. Her other brother, Joseph E. Schmitz, was Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Defense under George W. Bush. How could they pass a security clearance and work at the White House? btw next year she and Vili Fualaau will celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary in 2015.

Conservatives like to call Obama a communist or socialist but he's more like a moderate Republican when you analyze all his policies. So why exactly are communism and socialism supposed to be so bad?
I am changing the theme of datalounge. its really filled with a bunch of outdated queens. THAT TYPE OF GAY IS OVER. just because you are a homo does not mean you have to been so concerned with dick all the time and opera and finding love and existing as a stupid young or old little court jester for other twat gays...............change your ways. you out dated hags. Class no 1 you will be watching old ladies get gang banged. Class no 2 you will be following Dan Bilzeiran on instagram daily........WHY ? cause he is friggin hot
She was phenomenal in that part. Critics and the audience all loved her.

See link for Dawkin's crackpot tweets... Scientist says a mother has a responsibility to ‘abort it and try again’ if she knows her baby would have the disorder Richard Dawkins says it would be immoral for a mother to continue with a pregnancy if the baby would be born with Down’s syndrome. The scientist Richard Dawkins has become embroiled in another Twitter row, claiming it would be “immoral” to carry on with a pregnancy if the mother knew the foetus had Down’s syndrome. The British author made the comment in response to another user who said she would be faced with “a real ethical dilemma” if she became pregnant and learned that the baby would be born with the disorder. Dawkins tweeted: “Abort it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice.” He faced a backlash for his comment, with one mother, who has a child with the genetic condition, saying: “I would fight till my last breath for the life of my son. No dilemma.” Dawkins later defended his view, saying he would not apologise “for approaching moral philosophic questions in a logical way”. He went on to point out that Down’s syndrome foetuses are aborted in many cases, and that abortion was a woman’s choice. Some users supported the God Delusion author, agreeing with his assertion that there is a difference in deciding on a termination before a child is born, and suggesting after the child is born that it should have been aborted. The Down’s Syndrome Association (DSA) issued a response to Dawkins’s initial comment. “People with Down’s syndrome can and do live full and rewarding lives, they also make a valuable contribution to our society. “At the Down’s Syndrome Association we do not believe Down’s syndrome in itself should be a reason for termination, however we realise that families must make their own choice. “The DSA strives to ensure that all prospective parents are given accurate and up to date information about the condition and what life might be like today for someone with Down’s syndrome.” Previously Dawkins has caused controversy on Twitter by saying the world’s Muslims had won fewer Nobel prizes than Trinity College Cambridge; and by arguing some types of rape or paedophilia are worse than others, then telling people who couldn’t understand his logic to “go away and learn how to think”.

ENOUGH! Fini! Arrêtez! Detente! Knock It Off! It's become a game for FaceBook and Twitter famewhores and I'm not buying that it's raised as much as people are saying. Every loser fatty gay friend of mine online, every attention seeking college student, every mommy with too much time on her hands and a little precious she wants to promote..... they're all doing it. Make it go away!!!!!
That continue to post their half naked pics even though they clearly can see that their constituency is 99% gay. And then get pissed when viewers continuously ask them if they are gay. What's their deal? Attention whores? Or just latent homosexuals...
I have met an unusually large number of gay men who were abused as kids. I'm not saying that being molested caused the homosexuality--most predators specifically choose most docile kids or the one who show gay characteristics. Were you ever molested?
I can see why he needs the publicity what with TB ending and him being killed off so early in the season. But why does she need press? Modern Family is doing pretty well, no?
I started my sexual life as a top. Since I have a large, thick cock, I didn't have to do much, and my partners would often cum in seconds. The flip side is I didn't really learn to be a great top. Plus, with a condom on, my cock was fickle. Worst of all, while I was searching for guys who liked me, I mainly found guys who liked my dick. I was getting bored so I started bottoming. While thicker cocks do feel better, overall, having something in my hole feels more uncomfortable than relaxing (as other bottoms have told me they feel). I like the thought of someone in me rather than actually having him in me. The intimacy part is great, however. Kissing someone and feeling his chest on me while he's fucking me is nice. Men have told me I'm a great bottom--but it just doesn't feel that great. Of all things, I love being sucked. Anyway, does that make me a top, bottom, or just lazy?
I guess they realized people stopped paying attention to their bearding PR stunt.

In the past few weeks i have done my research for the benefit of the planet and tracked ex women friends who were extremely hot here in los angeles. I wondered what happened to them as they would only, ONLY screw very hot model guys . well now they are 42, 43yrs old. they loved the bad boy straight friends that I had so I wondered what happened to these women. sure enough..... looking on face book, both got married to geeks , creepy jewish producers , pudgy, and fugly and popped out kids.....i figured it would happen. how they crawl into bed with these guys i will never know. But i figured they saw their expiration dates coming and they needed to secure their futures.. pop out two kids....lol, its a pattern with hot women.
I am. Unless I'm drunk, then I'm a total whore.

I've never lived in LA but have a really great job offer that I'm considering. The office is located in Beverly Hills (is it odd for a business to be located there?), what neighborhood should I live in? I am a single, 30 year old lesbian. I like Santa Monica because it is closer to the ocean, but is it too far from BH? What about Los Feliz, Silverlake and West Hollywood? I would be renting and price is not a big limitation (nothing over $2,500 per month). Ideally I'd rent in an apartment building unless I can find a nice guest house or bungalow or something like that. I want to be around people. Thanks in advance.

Is this why I have no friends?
It’s been a little over a month since software developer Ed Summers created the Twitter account @congressedits, which tweets out any anonymous Wikipedia edits made from Congressional IP address ranges. And it looks like it’s finally found something newsworthy, if unsurprising: Somebody in the House Of Representatives is transphobic. Shortly after 10 p.m. last night, somebody from within the House Of Representatives changed the Wikipedia entry for Laverne Cox, a transgender actress who plays transgender inmate Sophia Burset on Orange Is The New Black. The entry originally said that an article in The Advocate “touted that Orange Is The New Black contains the first ever women-in-prison narrative to be played by a real transgender woman.” But the anonymous elected representative (or someone from their staff) changed the line to the hateful “a real man pretending to be a woman.” The elected official (or their staff member) also added a link to a National Review article published last month that claimed Cox is “not a real woman.” The IP address was banned from making edits for one month.
While the rest of the developed world has discovered that universal healthcare covers everyone, is the cheapest solution, and provides the highest quality of care, the US, even with Obamacare, hasn't figured it out yet. Universal healthcare is done in different ways--In England, for example, the government employs the docs, owns most hospitals, and pays for the healthcare (like our VA). In Canada,Germany, and France, the government pays the bills but the docs and hospitals are private (like our Medicare). Most of the developed world has single payer--where the government pays for everyone's healthcare through taxes (like the Medicare for all concept). Obamacare is modeled on the Swiss model, where people are required to buy their own insurance. These countries have all rejected for-profit insurance companies because companies take out 25-30% of the healthcare dollar for profits and administrative costs. Yes, one third of every dollar you pay for insurance doesn't even go to your improve your health. My theory as to why America does not have universal healthcare is because we're so hung up on race. Whites think blacks are all lazy and poor and take their money (ignoring the fact that most welfare and Medicaid recipients are, in fact, white and that most blacks are middle class). Conservatives, who support insurance company profits, keep pushing this racist view to confuse the masses (which is why we hear about myths like "Welfare Queens" being black mothers with a multitude of kids). If we all agreed that we're actually all in this together and not different just because of our races, we could have a much cheaper, more effective healthcare system.

They were rumored about but nobody was publishing photos, etc. Was it PR who kept the photos away from sight? But what about the same thing happening today. How are all these young Hollywood gays meeting and hooking up at parties- and you know they happen- and there are never any photos leaked online. Do they have a "check your phone at the door policy" (which would seem impossible to enforce as everybody is always texting, etc.) Or do they have people sign paperwork (which would kind of kill any fun party buzz.) Just amazing that one of the only outings that happened like that was Chad Allen and that was 20 years ago.
Tipping the scales at 270 lbs now Jonah Hill is the heaviest he has ever been — and sources tell The National ENQUIRER that they fear for his life! “Jonah is eating again with reckless abandon,” a friend of Hill’s told The ENQUIRER. “He is a brilliant comedic actor with decades ahead of him, but he has to get a handle on his health before he faces deadly consequences.” In 2011, Moneyball co-star Brad Pitt urged Hill to lose weight and the 5-foot-7 double Oscar nominee lost an impressive 40 pounds from his 250-pound frame. “This past year, it has all come back and more and in recent months, Jonah is ballooning out of control,” the source added.

Please herald the early arrival of Part 12! Thanks to the Spam troll for its early arrival, I guess. Or was it the fact that Vern's messy self-identification all over the net made its way onto these pages due to her careless nature and being named a plaintiff in a lawsuit among other indiscretions? I suppose that Vern's adventures as a would be prison matron, yet actual food services supervisor in the Tennessee prison system were just too much for TPTB. However most of us are quite happy now that Kristen and Alicia are together. Proceed.
The new documentary is on HBO. Did the kids set her up or is she a lying whore? I loved the Nicole Kidman takeoff on it 'To Die For'.
From its website: [quote]And when Josh finds himself in bed with a very attractive man after being dumped by his girlfriend, it’s clear he has a few things to sort out. All six episodes air tonight on Pivot, a new cable station formerly known as Halogen. Well-received by critics, it should be fun to watch. It has a page at Wikipedia, but here's the link to its website.
Classy, Ben. I wonder if Anderson and Ben sampled the goods as payment? Link NSFW.
Now THIS is a Speedo.
A movie where he is in a big paper mache mask for the entire thing (or a big chunk of it). Well, at least no one will be talking about his huge cock, right?
I have no interest in sports and mafia movies. They bore the shit out of me. I've never seen the Godfather movies and still haven't seen Moneyball.
Top, bottom? Did he ever have a black boyfriend? How bad are his issues?
It's happened to everyone, right? Aren't we all a bit blind in that department?
A lot of DL people think he was too "girly"? But there are so many hot videos that are instant hardons . . .

more than Matt Damon.
It got three replies and was bounced. I'm curious as to what was posted that warranted a deletion. Must have been truly horrendous to offend Dataloungers!
On his wedding website! Only 9 days until the big day!
Since several replies in the Jason Adonis thread has people making claims about their interactions, making it a thread on its own. "Interaction" could be just meeting them, or hot sweaty sex, or anything in between.
This thread will reach 600 in 3, 2, 1...
I signed up to attend this study abroad program (in the UK) but decided not to go. I paid a deposit which I expected to lose but now they say I still have to pay the full year's tuition because it is too late for them to "fill my space." Does this sound legit? Will they come after me if I don't pay?
To the outsider, they don’t seem to have much in common. The internet doesn’t seem to understand their relationship. But it’s serious, lasting a lot longer than people thought it would. How have they prevailed? Love, sure. And also…oxycontin. They’re both addicted to oxy and often spend days at home, wrapped up in each other, doing oxy, back to her old habits. But he’s been partying for a long time, somehow he manages to make the bare minimum at work. So when they hooked up, she just kinda fell into that lifestyle. It’s not like she has to worry about money. And it’s not like she has the kind of job where anyone’s waiting on her to show up either. She’s already a boss as it is and then there will always be a mirror to hold her up.
Don't taxpayers have the right to know where and how their dollars are being spent?
Are most gays bitter, self hating and jealous when others succeed? (Serious question)
Like y'know... down there?
They won't show us their goodies in the gym lockerroom. Hissssssssssssssss!
Is it true the gay strip clubs are a shadow of what they used to be? 10 years ago I was blown away by how clean, fun, and friendly they were. Recent online reviews make them all sound like they're terrible now. Guys who don't bathe, super-aggressive money-grubbing. Remington's in Toronto? Campus, Stock, Taboo in Montreal? What's the reality these days? They're much more expensive for Americans now, of course, than they used to be. But have they all gone bad? Is Swinging Richards in Atlanta better than all of them?
Not a bad tune at the link. I didn't know that Ross left so early. I love Cindy Birdsong. Any gossip about this trio?
and I want them now!
After watching We Bought a Zoo!, I felt really angry at Matt Damon's character for what he did to the tiger. What he did was kill a tiger that could have had a normal or great future (at least for a few more days) and murdered him. The reason Spar, the tiger, died was because of Matt Damon's character. He did not love animals. He was not a zoophilic. People who are not zoophilics make me so angry. Little kids and teens are so defenseless and naiive, for an adult to permanently damage the kid by killing an animal would be a very easy thing to do. What these lowlife adults are doing is ruining someone else's life. It's disgusting. Period. All through the movie I wanted to strangle Matt Damon's character. Toward the end, I was so sad for Spar, who died because of Benjamin, who I thought Matt Damon did a great job portraying. Although, I thought Damon did not do justice to the true inhumanity of someone who is not a zoophilic.
Reason I ask is that when I croak, I would appreciate it informing everyone and not just leave my words there forever, hanging.
Tell me what to avoid. I already went through these turkeys: "Test" (2013)- A bunch of fey dancers pirouette around 1964 San Fran, having bareback and thinking about getting tested for AIDS. Dreary. "Django Unchained"- The first Tarantino film I haven't enjoyed. Poorly cast, and halfway through the boredom I said, "Why am I still watching this?".
How unfortunate for them that all this gossip about their union exploded just as they were looking for publicity for their joint tour! LOL who else thinks it's all bullshit, just Hov pulling strings to move more money into his pockets.
Im watching Behind the Candelabra and notice he has a nice juicy ass. I'd do him.
You'd think this would be common knowledge, but some people just don't get it.
My father would often "parade" around naked in front of me and my younger brother. He once commented that young boys could be intimidated by adult men with large penises like his. I realize this is unusual but I'm not sure what it means. He was definitely not gay.
They never really disappeared, did they?

Endorsed today by Mike Huckabee. Looks like gayface to me. Interestingly, his campaign site ticks off all the social conservative boxes (NRA membership, anti-abortion, etc.) but there's not a word about "traditional marriage." I did find this: [quote]Paul (II) moved from his home in Baton Rouge to be with his paternal grandparents Paul and Anne Dietzel in August 2013 when Coach Dietzel became ill. Coach passed away in September 2013 and Paul (II) made the decision to stay with his grandmother, who turned 90 in December. Lots of pictures on this page. What do we think?
Who are they?
A female friend's daughter is interning for one year with Oscar de la Renta. She's found an all-girl boarding house she can stay in for a few weeks that includes two meals a day but wants an apartment near work. How much can she realistically expect for an apartment and, yes, she's open to roommates. BTW, she's a gorgeous young blonde who gets mistaken for Amanda Seyfried all the time. I almost envy her for being young, beautiful and working in NY for a fashion house.
Have you had one? Did you know what it was? How long before you found a solution? The first time I had a panic attack was in the water. I was swimming in a fresh-water lake and before I knew it I was in the middle of a panic attack and swam as fast as I could to the boat, pulled myself in, and lay on the floor sucking in air like a beached flounder. I thought it was physical, not mental, and this went on for a few years until I was prescribed Xanax. By the time I finally got the prescription, I felt like I was on the verge of a complete nervous breakdown. The medication took all the symptoms away.

Kim explains who the ghost is and why he/she was trying to make contact. It's awesome!! Anyone else watch it?
Prancing around in his hotel room in not a whole lot. Nice body.
Look at this piece of shit! There are no curves on the hood. The mouth is droolier than Rob Ford. And it's fat. What the fuck were these assholes thinking. No self-respecting queen (real estate agent or not) will be caught dead in these monstrosities. Are they trying to remake the Ford Festiva or the Dodge Neon, because it sure as shit looks like they're headed in that direction.
I'm growing increasingly jealous of those who are coupled. I love coming home and having my sacred alone time each and everyday...but I really want someone to share simple burdens with me like grocery shopping, preparing food, laundry, maintenance! Life seems so much easier, especially for straight dudes who have wives that basically serve as their second mothers, feeding them, buying their clothes, etc. I'm amazed at these guys who I work with, who can rattle off endless sports stats, because they go home and sit on their ass in front of EPSN everyday. I want a male wife, NOW!
Will the new Broadway revival be any good? It usually doesn't hold up in revival, despite some really good songs (like "New York, New York" and "Ya Got Me").
I can sort of understand if you're a twink and want to look like a child (which is really disturbing on more than a few levels). But why would a hairy bear shave his balls? Trimming the bush. Sure, I get that. But shaving your balls to make you look like a pre-adolescent? I really don't get it. At all. What is the problem with hair? Again, yes, trim it? But shave it all off trying to look like a teenager or ... gulp .. a girl? WTF?

Do you realize how many of our posts are about entertainers and celebrities, as compared with, say, how gay is Dark Energy or Shakespeare?
Smart, hot and sexy, these men make the best lovers. Nice guys too. The new focus on the physical completes the man. It brings balance. When you find one hold on tight.
Are you really clean and sober if you continue to smoke marijuana but have given up everything harder? What about if you still smoke cigarettes? An acquaintance says he is while continuing to use both.
All of these amazingly fat people walking around, I mean, the FAT is simply unbelievable. Do you suppose many of them are having sex? How? My mind tried to picture it, and I couldn't turn the thought off. Think kitties!! Little kitties and puppies playing!! Didn't help. And basic hygiene .. also how? I know there are tools and whatnot, but what about the 900 pounders, confined to a bed. Do I not want to know?
How would those around describe you?
Pretty scary. The thieves went for a grand slam. See what I did there?
What does this exactly mean? Are they trying to say that guns don't make people kill? No matter what, it's stupid.
Fahrenheit 451. Everyone complains about it, because it's centrally miscast (with Oskar Werner who can barely be understood when he reads out loud from David Copperfield). But I love its look and its little details, and its has two of Julie Christie's best performances as the sweet rebel Clarice and the ethically and emotionally anesthetized wife, Linda. Plus its got one of the greatest of all Bernard Herrmann scores.

I'm 18. Leaving for college tomorrow. Thus far any hook-ups I've had were either not going all the way or were from grinder where you know exactly what you're going to get. But when you actually meet a guy out that is attractive to you and you end up going home with him... what happens if you're both tops? How do you figure it out before you take the wrong guy home?

Does it piss you off when the dealership where you bought your car slaps their advertising on the back of YOUR car without even asking you? I hate that!
You all here think so, at least if you read the Timberlake threads. But on other gossip sites they think he's straight. Celeb writers/bloggers who traffic in gossip say he is straight - EG Ted C, that Lainey person. If you read on him here and other sites, it's like two different people. What's the real deal? Is he gay or not? Am curious to hear from DLers who actually know something, not so much a bunch of speculating fraus, fans and haters...
Zoé Zebra, 22, is planning the event — dubbed “Boule-O-thon” — in a trailer next to Club 77, a strip club on the city’s Main St., on Sept. 5. Her goal, according to the event’s Facebook page, is to perform sex acts with 25 men in one evening. In exchange, she will receive a cheque from her employer, porn company AD4X, which is producing the event and plans to film the whole thing. The money would cover the costs of breast implants from a surgeon of her choice. Zebra, from Saguenay, Que., told media earlier this week that she will choose her partners and what she does with them. “It’s my choice, and I’m not ashamed of that,” she said. “My mother is proud of me. She is happy that I’m doing what I love.”
I just randomly thought about her and remember how even when she was popular in 2002-2004 she was mocked and hated by a ton of people. For instance, I was at Great Clips and there was a magazine laying around that I decided to flip through. One of the articles was about how they received more hate mail about Avril than any other person. I find that sort of hilarious. Do any of you have any stories about her? What's she like in private/public? Any strong opinions on her music? Please share.
What is your experience with the happiest place on Earth?
I'm fat, and have been my entire life. I'm an emotional eater, and have never blamed my weight on genetics. I'm a coward who's afraid to confront my emotions, so I hide behind food. I work with a guy, very nice guy, but he weighs 500 pounds. He blames his eating on genetics, and his obesity. He says if he could just lose weight, he would get his eating under control. He doesn't seem to understand that he needs to get his eating under control to lose weight. So in the meantime his lunches are usually junk food; a large pizza, or several Big Macs, or two orders of Chinese food. Break snacks are usually cookies, or snack cakes and big bags of chips. The only thing he drinks is Coke, usually 2 liters a day. The only fruit he eats is apple pie, and the only veggies he eats are the onions and tomato sauce on his pizza. And all the while he blames his overeating on genetics, and his "body's need" to overeat. Am I an asshole for calling bullshit on this? I'm not a skinny guy who doesn't understand what binge eating is all about. I know his body isn't forcing him to eat a family size container of ice cream. I've seen him eat, it's like watching someone fuck; all moans, and licking his lips. He loves to eat. But according to him, he hates overeating, but his body won't let him eat healthy.
Because some of us like it!
The latest shocking revelation in the corruption trial of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife came in court Thursday, as McDonnell testified the couple is living separately and that he has moved into the rectory of a Richmond church. And to think that this douchebag was being considered as a potential vice presidential candidate and didn't discourage the speculation. Video:
She hasn't posted a story since Robin Williams died and hasn't approved a new comment since Tuesday. Considering no one has ever seen her, it's entirely possible that she was really Lauren Bacall.

“I realize something’s happening in Ferguson, but we’re talking about something important here.” During her show on Tuesday, Megyn Kelly was visibly frustrated when her interview about the beheading of American journalist James Foley was interrupted by a breaking news update from the protests in Ferguson. “I realize something’s happening in Ferguson,” Kelly said. “But we’re talking about something important here, so can you at least split-screen the video?”
My choices are... Alanis Morissette - her last two albums (Flavors of Entanglement & Havoc and Bright Lights) were brilliant with zero filler and the best of her career. I actually loathe Jagged Little Pill and can't stand to see her in concert anymore because half the show is those boring Pill cuts. Pizzicato Five - Made in USA is one of my favorite records of all time yet no one in the States barely know who they are. They are just so fun and produce catchy tunes.
She was a thing back in the day. She never really crossed over. She just disappeared. No one saw her for years, and then she just died fat and alone. Poor thing.
Posted in another thread but copied here because it needs its own thread! What do you think, did this interviewer out him? I say yes due to totality of circumstances, not just the comment but the responses it gets, including from Mr JT. Rough description: [quote] the Charlamagne exchange went like this: it's a wakeup show so super early, as interview is ending DJ NV (other host) pretending it was a good talk instead of boring bullshit, he says 'we went deep in the morning," Justin says yeah and Charlamagne puts on his sexyvoice and says 'all day, Justin."Justin says pause (the tape? but it was live so they couldn't?), the other host is shocked then tries to cover, then the bitch female host makes some homophobic joke about skinny jeans. Breakfast club int link, exchange is in the last minute or so, listen for yourself
I've watched the promos, an episode of Rush and half an episode of Satisfaction. The two leads are supposed to be hot but to me they are almost hot but not as hot as their characters should be. Anyone else have the same reaction. Where did these men come from?

Yet ANOTHER HuffPost piece by a mom about why you're a terrible person for judging her because her child is running wild in public. This time it's because her son is ADHD and she doesn't believe in medication. ************************* You've seen him in restaurants; he's the loud one who rudely disrupts the other diners. On the first day of school, he's the kid in your child's class who you see spinning and wiggling and you think, Please let him not be sitting next to my child. When you pass out your child's birthday party invites, he's the kid you'd just as soon not invite. At soccer practice, he's the one on your child's team who makes you think, Why do his parents even bother bringing him? At the grocery store, he's the brat who makes you think, His parents need to learn to control their kid. But there are some things you don't know about that wild, unruly child... You don't know that from the time he was 2, his parents received daily notes home from preschool saying things like: "During storytime, your child ran around the room instead of sitting on the carpet." "Your child was disruptive during naptime." "Your child did not finish any of his work today." You don't know that when his worried mom first shared her concerns with her trusted friends and relatives, they said things like: "That behavior is normal at his age." "All little boys are hyper!" "It's because he's so smart -- he's just bored!" You don't know that at his preschool Christmas pageant, he was shoved all the way in the back where he would be less conspicuous, which meant his parents were unable to take a video of him. Not that he was doing anything worthy of recording as a family memory; instead of singing the songs that had been rehearsed ad nauseam, he jumped, squirmed, spun and made weird faces. You don't know that at his pre-kindergarten graduation, when he said his memorized line at the microphone better than any other child in his class, his mother burst into tears, not out of pride, but out of relief. You don't know that in kindergarten, he was threatened with expulsion because of his picking habit... when he absentmindedly picked at the waistband of the little girl sitting in front of him during carpet time and she screamed out that he was trying to look at her underwear. And his mother had to explain to him about private parts even though he had no concept of the idea, no clue that he'd done anything inappropriate. You don't know that the parents of that undisciplined little hooligan didn't even believe "ADHD" was a real thing. They smugly thought it was an excuse made up by weak parents of unruly children, parents who were too lazy or stupid to stay in control. You don't know that his mother has bought, read and highlighted no fewer than 10 books, and not just ones about ADHD; books about parenting "strong-willed" children, books about discipline, books about love languages. (Maybe she just wasn't giving him enough love and it was making him wild? Or maybe she could "cure" him with love?) You don't know that the parents of this child maintain a highly-structured, loving, nurturing, encouraging environment in their home. They have rewards charts and everything. Yes, they even have discipline! You don't know that sometimes, when his mother tells someone that they've chosen not to medicate, the person gets offended because they medicate their child, and it's been a GODSEND for them. Do you think you're better than them or something? You don't know that sometimes, when his mother tells someone that they've chosen not to medicate, the person says, "GOOD. Medicating your kid for ADHD is the same as giving them CRACK." And then his mother makes a mental note to not tell that person if they ever do choose to medicate, because, quite frankly, she still hasn't ruled out the idea. (cont.)
A federal judge on Thursday declared Florida's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, joining judges across the country who have sided with gay couples wishing to tie the knot. U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle in Tallahassee ruled that the ban added to Florida's constitution by voters in 2008 violates the 14th Amendment's guarantees of equal protection and due process. Hinkle issued a stay delaying the effect of his order, meaning no marriage licenses will be immediately issued for gay couples. That also means gay couples legally married in other states will not immediately have their marriages recognized in Florida. Hinkle, an appointee of President Bill Clinton, compared bans on gay marriage to the long-abandoned prohibitions on interracial marriage and predicted both would be viewed by history the same way. "When observers look back 50 years from now, the arguments supporting Florida's ban on same-sex marriage, though just as sincerely held, will again seem an obvious pretext for discrimination," Hinkle wrote in his ruling. "To paraphrase a civil rights leader from the age when interracial marriage was struck down, the arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice." Gay rights have long been a contentious issue in Florida, a politically complex swing state where the northern counties tend to lean Republican like their Deep South neighbors and parts of South Florida are reliably Democratic. In the 1970s, singer and orange juice spokeswoman Anita Bryant lobbied to overturn a Dade County ordinance banning discrimination against gays, though the protections were later reinstated. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, a Republican, has appealed previous rulings striking down the ban, which were issued earlier this year in Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties. Hinkle's ruling allows time for appeals in the federal case. Bondi wants the Florida cases to remain on hold pending a definitive national ruling on gay marriage by the U.S. Supreme Court. "The U.S. Supreme Court, they need to decide this case, they are going to decide this case, hopefully sooner than later so we will have finality," Bondi said earlier this week. "There are good people on both sides of this issue and we need to have finality for everyone involved." Gay marriage proponents have won more than 20 legal decisions against state same-sex marriage restrictions since the U.S. Supreme Court invalidated the federal Defense of Marriage Act last year. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court delayed an appeals court decision that would end Virginia's gay marriage ban and, in January, the justices did the same thing in a same-sex marriage case in Utah. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati recently heard arguments in six same-sex marriage cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. The latest Florida ruling came in a pair of lawsuits brought by gay couples seeking to marry in Florida and others who want to force Florida to recognize gay marriages performed legally in other states. Currently, 19 states and the District of Columbia permit same-sex marriage. The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, which represented some of the gay couples, said the tide of rulings makes legal same-sex marriage in Florida appear inevitable. "We're very pleased to see the ban held unconstitutional in such unequivocal terms so that all Florida families will soon finally have the same protections," said ACLU staff attorney Daniel Tilley. Hinkle did add one wrinkle in his decision: he said the delay on marriages should have no effect on a proposed change to the death certificate of Carol Goldwasser, who was legally married in New York in 2011 to Arlene Goldberg before Goldwasser died earlier this year.

Really good acting but it is so depressing. I want to throttle Teddy and some of the other hicks.
A federal judge on Thursday ruled Florida's gay-marriage ban unconstitutional and ordered the state to recognize marriages legally performed elsewhere. U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle, however, immediately stayed his order until after the appeals process is completed. “When observers look back 50 years from now, the arguments supporting Florida’s ban on same-sex marriage, though just as sincerely held, will again seem an obvious pretext for discrimination,” Hinkle wrote. “Observers who are not now of age will wonder just how those views could have been held.” Hinkle’s ruling comes after 22 individuals including nine married couples sued Florida to recognize their marriages or grant them marriage licenses. Plaintiffs in the case include eight same-sex couples from South Florida and and LGBT-rights group SAVE. “While we are overjoyed that the judge erred on the side of fairness by ordering the state of Florida recognize the legal marriages of the plaintiffs, we will continue to make the case that it is Florida’s responsibility to recognize the legal marriages of ALL same-sex couples, and not only those named as plaintiffs in our suit,” SAVE Executive Director Tony Lima said in a statement. “SAVE will continue to advocate for a pro-equality ruling as the court examines the case further in the weeks and months ahead.” Whitney Ray, a spokesman for Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, declined to say if Bondi's office was planning to appeal. “We’re reviewing the ruling,” he said. Florida Gov. Rick Scott “respects the many views Floridians have on this issue,” said Greg Blair, his campaign spokesman. “He believes in traditional marriage, consistent with the constitutional amendment passed by voters in 2008. There are several cases going through the court system and the governor respects that process.” In March, eight same-sex couples who married elsewhere in the United States sued Florida to recognize their unions: Sloan Grimsley and Joyce Albu of Palm Beach Gardens; Lindsay Myers and Sarah Humlie of Pensacola; Chuck Hunziger and Bob Collier of Broward; Juan Del Hierro and Thomas Gantt Jr. of Miami; Christian Ulvert and Carlos Andrade of Miami; Richard Milstein and Eric Hankin of Miami; Robert Loupo and John Fitzgerald of Miami; and Denise Hueso and Sandra Jean Newson of Miami. The ACLU suit eventually was consolidated with a similar case involving two couples in North Florida, one already married and the other wanting to wed. “It’s the first federal decision in Florida. When the stay is lifted, it will have statewide impact,” said Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU of Florida. “What it will mean, when the stay is ultimately lifted, is that there families will be protected and strengthened. They'll start getting health insurance, pension benefits. They could protect their families with survivors benefits. These are the dramatic, practical ways that this victory will ultimately help families in Florida.” On April 10, the ACLU of Florida amended its complaint by adding another plaintiff: Arlene Goldberg of Fort Myers, whose wife, Carol Goldwasser, died March 13. Goldberg and Goldwasser had been partners for 47 years. They moved from the Bronx to Florida in 1989 and married in New York in October 2011. “Isn’t that fabulous? I’m so excited,” Goldberg said Thursday. “It confirms that they actually believe we were a couple. Married. We were together for 47 years and married for three in New York.” Goldberg is caring for her late wife’s elderly parents. Because Florida hasn’t recognized her marriage to Goldwasser, Goldberg is unable to collect her late wife’s Social Security. Hinkle’s stay covered all aspects of the case except one: The judge ordered Goldwasser’s death certificate be amended to show she was a married woman, not single at the time she died. “The defendant Florida Surgeon General must issue a corrected death certificate for Carol Goldwasser showing that at the time of her death she was married to Arlene Goldberg,” Hinkle wrote. Bondi has until about Sept. 22 to appeal the case or the ruling takes effect, making Goldberg eligible to collect Goldwasser’s Social Security. The gay-marriage battle is being waged across the nation. According to the national group Freedom to Marry, LGBT advocates have won more than 30 times in federal, state and appellate courts since June 2013, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Edith Windsor, a lesbian widow, and threw out a key portion of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. Since mid-July there have been five rulings in Florida declaring the state’s 2008 gay-marriage ban unconstitutional. The previous four rulings were in circuit courts throughout South Florida. On July 17, Monroe Chief Circuit Judge Luis Garcia ruled the ban unconstitutional and that Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones of Key West could marry. Eight days later, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel ruled six same-sex couples in South Florida also had the right to marry. Those decisions are valid only in the judges’ respective counties, and both rulings have been put on hold pending appeals by Attorney General Pam Bondi. On Aug. 4, Broward Circuit Judge Dale Cohen ruled Florida must recognize and then dissolve the Vermont civil union of Heather Brassner, a lesbian whose partner left her four years ago. The following day, Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Diana Lewis ordered W. Jason Simpson should be personal representative in the estate of his husband, Frank Bangor, who died March 14. The two men, together 37 years, were married Oct. 23, 2013, in Delaware.
I gotta say, I enjoyed this. At least he's creative AND donated money. I love that he challenged John Travolta!
She was so much, much, much more than just Webster's adopted mom and Alex Karras's wife. She won an Emmy for her turn as Babe Didrikson Zaharias, America's favorite closeted lesbian ever, in "Babe," and Clint Eastwood's love interest in "Coogan's Bluff," and Gene Hackman's bra-less wife in "Night Moves." And prostitute Cherry Forever in "Porky's." It's time she at last got her own Datalounge thread.
Bet she's a lot of work. She grew in the next town from me on Long Island, the same town as Rosie, totally middle class, when there actually was a middle class. Nick seems to have ten jobs to prove to her he could support her.
Oh, dear, I might have to watch this shit now if only to hear him talk about what a cunt Debra Messing is.
New series about a ship in a world where an epidemic has swept the world killing almost everyone. Anyone going to watch it?

The New York Post's Page Six reports Carey and Cannon are "living separately." She has allegedly suspected him of cheating and even hired security guards to make sure he stayed away from other women during club appearances. “He hasn’t been staying at their home,” a source told Page Six. “He’s been living out of hotels. They’re fighting a lot.”
My choices are.. Nina Gordon's Tonight and The Rest of My Life (despite the over-produced sound) Jesus and Mary Chain's Munki Liz Phair's self-titled cd and Somebody's Miracle
Hot. I don't go for the shaved head look but still, hot. (Especially in the picture at his desk.) Who knows something?
I guess she's come out of the country closet, and decided to go "pop". I always thought she was country/pop, so it's no big deal to me. New song is kinda catchy

Yes, I have a sick mind.
Ferguson is not just about systemic racism — it's about class warfare and how America's poor are held back, says Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Will the recent rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, be a tipping point in the struggle against racial injustice, or will it be a minor footnote in some future grad student’s thesis on Civil Unrest in the Early Twenty-First Century? The answer can be found in May of 1970. You probably have heard of the Kent State shootings: on May 4, 1970, the Ohio National Guard opened fire on student protesters at Kent State University. During those 13 seconds of gunfire, four students were killed and nine were wounded, one of whom was permanently paralyzed. The shock and outcry resulted in a nationwide strike of 4 million students that closed more than 450 campuses. Five days after the shooting, 100,000 protestors gathered in Washington, D.C. And the nation’s youth was energetically mobilized to end the Vietnam War, racism, sexism, and mindless faith in the political establishment. You probably haven’t heard of the Jackson State shootings. On May 14th, 10 days after Kent State ignited the nation, at the predominantly black Jackson State University in Mississippi, police killed two black students (one a high school senior, the other the father of an 18-month-old baby) with shotguns and wounded twelve others. There was no national outcry. The nation was not mobilized to do anything. That heartless leviathan we call History swallowed that event whole, erasing it from the national memory. And, unless we want the Ferguson atrocity to also be swallowed and become nothing more than an intestinal irritant to history, we have to address the situation not just as another act of systemic racism, but as what else it is: class warfare. By focusing on just the racial aspect, the discussion becomes about whether Michael Brown’s death—or that of the other three unarmed black men who were killed by police in the U.S. within that month—is about discrimination or about police justification. Then we’ll argue about whether there isn’t just as much black-against-white racism in the U.S. as there is white-against-black. (Yes, there is. But, in general, white-against-black economically impacts the future of the black community. Black-against-white has almost no measurable social impact.) Then we’ll start debating whether or not the police in America are themselves an endangered minority who are also discriminated against based on their color—blue. (Yes, they are. There are many factors to consider before condemning police, including political pressures, inadequate training, and arcane policies.) Then we’ll question whether blacks are more often shot because they more often commit crimes. (In fact, studies show that blacks are targeted more often in some cities, like New York City. It’s difficult to get a bigger national picture because studies are woefully inadequate. The Department of Justice study shows that in the U.S. between 2003 and 2009, among arrest-related deaths there’s very little difference among blacks, whites, or Latinos. However, the study doesn’t tell us how many were unarmed.) This fist-shaking of everyone’s racial agenda distracts America from the larger issue that the targets of police overreaction are based less on skin color and more on an even worse Ebola-level affliction: being poor. Of course, to many in America, being a person of color is synonymous with being poor, and being poor is synonymous with being a criminal. (Cont'd)
Girl, you aren't in New York. Stop trying so hard.

And you thought the Ham Game was crazy... Our new series, Manzo'd With Children, takes you inside the wild, out-of-control, smack-talking, pork-product-tossing lives of Caroline Manzo and her beloved family, husband Al Sr., sons Albie and Chris, daughter Lauren and her fiancé Vito. The show is set to premiere on Bravo later this year—and we've got a first look at the hilarious action. In this clip, Lauren and Chris pull a major prank on Albie, who is fighting off an allergy attack. Lauren convinces her bro to try an ancient secret to make him feel better—and it involves hummus. It's all fun and games until the Manzos start hurling globs of the condiment at each other—and Caroline steps in to show them who's the boss of the household.

Yas, the new season starts next week. I can't wait! Too bad Kelly Price left the show. She brought so much fuckery to season one that her drama will be deeply missed. But we still got Lil' Mo on the show, the breakout star, so it should be a good season.
Last year Brandon announced the birth of his daughter, Skylar Rain. A few weeks ago someone found posts made by Brandon on a Christina Aguilera message board with the username, Matt. Brandon responded that he was a "Matt Rutler fan". Who is Matt Rutler? He's Aguilera's fiancée and the father to her newborn baby, whose name was just announced today to be...Summer Rain! What's going on here? In this post he's addressing Christina:
Now that I can afford it, I've been thinking of getting some work done. I'm 46 but people say I look much younger--except I have some bags under my eyes. I've had these for a decade.

US: Parents beat 8-year-old to death because he played with dolls 20th August 2014, 7:32 PM, Joseph Patrick McCormick The parents of an eight-year-old beat “every inch” of him, until he was dead, because he played with dolls, a court heard. Pearl Fernandez, 30, and Isauro Aguirre, 34, beat their son Gabriel Fernandez in May 2013, the Los Angeles court was told by prosecutors. The eight year old was beaten “for eight straight months”, and he was “tortured more severely than many prisoners of war.” The child wrote his own suicide note because he could no longer take the abuse. On 22 May 2013, the parents called emergency services because they said their son was not breathing. She claimed he had fallen an hit his head on a dresser. According to statements given by his two siblings, he was forced to eat cat faeces and rotten spinach and was not allowed to use the toilet. He was called gay, and beaten when he played with dolls. He was beaten with a metal hanger, a belt buckle and lost multiple teeth when he was hit with a bat. His siblings said he was taken to a bedroom and beaten until he was dead, as he would not clean up his toys. Two social workers and two supervisors were sacked following the death of the 8-year-old. Every incident report concluded with no abuse, and a detailed report was never written up.
It was so awful. Not to make it all about me...but... I feel so weird tonight. Crying jags. Dizziness. Should I go to an urgent care place? Will I just adjust in the days to come?

Do you think it is much easier for high school kids today to be openly gay than kids in the 70s, 80s or 90s? Back in the day most teens were closeted and there weren't really an role models. I was called fag more times than I'd like to remember. It seems now though there are more teens committing suicide due to bullying for being gay. Is it just being reported more now, or are social networks making the situation worse?

New art director. He's all over the place, talks in circles, non stop, is forever going over details of projects that have already been done - wanting to do them over, constantly changing his mind about projects and artwork changes, is out of work a few days a week (always a different excuse).. This is resulting in missed deadlines, and the rest of us having to do the work he forgets and having to stay late to finish his shit. It's not laziness, the guy is just a fucking disorganize, hyper mess. I haven't been around a lot of people who do drugs, what are the signs I should be looking for?
'Glee' Books Max Adler's Return -- as Blaine's Boyfriend? (Exclusive) 11:38 AM PDT 8/21/2014 by Lesley Goldberg Glee's sixth and final season is starting to take shape and one of the show's most beloved characters might be in for a rude awakening. Max Adler has booked a return visit to the Fox musical and will reprise his role as former bully-turned-openly gay good guy Dave Karofsky, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Adler's arc is said to be major and he'll appear in at least four of the final 13 episodes of the series. Sources tell THR that Dave may now be romantically tangled with Blaine (Darren Criss), which is surprising news since season five ended with Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine seemingly better than ever as a couple after performing at a glitzy showcase for the all-powerful social mover June (Shirley MacLaine). However, Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy told reporters in April that the final season would feature a time jump — and focus more on the core original cast members — which could mean Kurt and Blaine have split after that. Or, knowing Glee, it could all be part of an elaborate dream sequence. "The final season is really its own story and its own location and while the New York stuff will be alive, the final season is not New York-centric at all," Murphy said. "It really [will be] a lovely, fitting season that … dwells on the original people that were on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. That really is the last season .… We'll revisit some of the new kids that came and went. There's a return of the Jane-Matt characters in a big way. It's really interesting, very sweet, satisfying ending to the story." Adler was last seen in the 17th episode of Glee's fifth season when Karofsky appeared in Rachel's pre-Opening Night dream sequence. The plot twist would come after Blaine helped Kurt get through Karofsky's bullying. The closeted jock routinely tormented the openly gay Kurt and, after Dave forced a kiss on him in season two, was outed in a landmark season three episode in which he attempted suicide. For the actor, the Glee return comes as he's been recurring on ABC Family's recently renewed Switched at Birth. His credits include the upcoming features Saugatuck Cures, The Midnight Man and Believe Me and 23 Blast, with the latter two due out this year. He's repped by CESD and Justice & Ponder. Glee returns midseason on Fox. A premiere date has not yet been announced.

WTF is going on??! Is a new idiot intern controlling their Facebook page? These aren't even stories featured on the TMZ web site. They're posting links to other web sites shitting on liberals and Obama. WTF is their problem? They had one today about liberals having to perform like they were in a circus for Obama co to even blink and eye at them. It's funny, as many Right-wingers there are on TMZ, even they are saying to stick to celeb news, not this shit.

Attached is a history of the Speedo from an Australian point of view. This paragraph caught my eye:%0D\ %0D\ ''American men have an aversion to displaying their bodies in public,'' one German visitor blogged. ''Ever since gay men came out of the closet in the ''80s and showed us who they were, straight American men went into the closet to show us what they weren''t. Before the late ''80s men wore shorter shorts and swimwear was short and fitted. Men used to be so free and liberated then. Now they are scared.''%0D\ %0D\ Amen! Americans need to get over their body aversion. The full article attached.

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

Steve Kornacki gives me a wet spot in my panties.
Talking with a friend over coffee and he said his first sexual encounter at the age of 16, was with his older brothers fat friend. They had a party, and everyone had a few beers, and while upstairs the brothers fat friend made a move. My friend says the brothers fat friend tried to have sex with him, "But his gut was so big and his dick was so small, he couldn't get inside me. So I just jerked him off till he came." They never talked about it again. The brothers fat friend is married to a woman and has several kids. Apparently he's still very fat. My friend says he's deathly embarrassed by this encounter, and swore me to secrecy. He's embarrassed because the guy was fat, not because it went so badly. So, Dataloungers, did any of you lose your cherry to a fattie?
Or don't you have any?

Don't steal cigarillos. If you are going to steal cigarillos, make sure the store doesn't have video surveillance or you will be caught by the owner.

Back in the paleozoic era, I went to a party at actor/writer Tom Tryon's apartment. This was in the days when Tryon was living with porn actor Cal Culver. Tryon was making a name as an author, mostly writing novels I think. I never read any of his stuff, but I did get one book. It's called "All That Glitters" and it's a thinly-disguised and well-written (I thought) story about old Hollywood. In the book "Babe Austrian" is Mae West and Clair Regrett is Joan Crawford. I like stories where they hide the name and give you all the gossip. Does anyone else have any juicy Roman a Clef recommendations. Please, list 'em here!
Thinking about giving SlimFast a try. Any suggestions or advice from DL? Should I get the premade shakes in the cans or just a canister of the powder and make my own shakes? Flavors to avoid?
He was cute, and had an obvious crush on me. I had decided to act on the crush I had on him, until I found out his father was a cop. Always wondered what happened to him. Does it seem pervy that in 1991, a 17 year old was interested in a 15 year old?
What's the cheapest wedding gift you've ever received, heard of someone receiving or (gasp) that you've given? We do a lot of wedding bashing here but I thought we could turn tables on the guests. My sister received a photo album from a friend; they're not super close but they socialize regularly. No, it was Not an unusually nice photo album, not particularly large or fancy, just the kind of 100-4x6 holders that you pick up at the drugstore. And no there were no "special" or personal photos included, it was still wrapped in plastic and empty. This woman brought her husband and she's in every photo, always with a drink in hand and spent half the night on the dance floor dancing to the band. She also raved about all the food. And she brought a $15 cheap, empty photo album. Who does this? I know people think weddings are rackets but come on. If you're getting a free meal, endless booze and some live music, you can put at least some thought into a gift. If you can't afford something expensive, do something creative or thoughtful.
It seems like it's fizzled but it just got an early renewal for a 7th season, even before the 6th season premiers. Jackie will apparently go back to drugs (which she kinda already dead in the close of last season.). No more Dr. O'Hara and 'Dr. Coop' is leaving as a cast regular. I'm sure we'll be smothered with more smearing on of the "precocious and precious" Zoe. I want to see late in life nurses hook up with hot, younger boyfriends! I wanna see more cliche E.R. scenes!
I've already noted the black socks/tennis shoe trend among the kooky kids as well as the knee-high tube sock fetish of chicken-legged men. Aside from wearing rehab shoes (white leather tennis shoes), I've noticed a great many men of my age (45+) wearing belted walking shorts with a polo or tee tucked in. It looks very special ed. Did I miss a trend?
So I met him just before Christmas and he is kind and considerate. I am a total bottom and he is an especially well endowed top. He said he loved me and I said it back. I do love him. He lost his job in January and needed a place so he moved in. He makes all of my meals, cleans every thing. He gets a meager benefits check, and spends it on gifts for me (but not groceries or anything useful). He has become needy, calling me 'pookie bear' (even in front of people and he uses baby talk in bed. He actually said "Pookie? I wuv you to much!! Can I put my wee-wee in your poo-poo hole?" Needless to say, my attraction has worn off and he complains about the lack of sex. A few weeks ago I was out with some friends and I met a man. I went back to his place and he has a nice old house and a pool. We took a swim and had some drinks. He grabbed my shoulders and said 'Christ! I want to fuck you!' and I said 'Then do!' I came home and all was fine. Then this Friday my BF and I were out with some friends. My BF wanted someone's phone number so I gave him my phone and told him it was in my contacts... well he saw a text from the guy referring to what a 'hot fuck' I am and could we meet again. Right there in the bar, at the table with our friends, he blurted 'Did you cheat on me?' Emboldened by a few drinks I replied nonchalantly. 'Yes I did'. He began to cry... not quiet tears and not sobbing, but I love Lucy style WAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH! and left the bar, still crying. I chose not to return home that night, opting instead for a good fuck at the other man's house. When I came home the next day, he was gone and the neighbor told me she'd heard him bawling his eyes out until 4 AM. His stuff was still there so I took a nap and knew I would have to deal with this, bracing myself for a fight. He came in at noon with a 50 inch screen TV. He made me promise not to cheat again unless it's a threesome... and I had to let him put his 9 inch pee-pee in poo-poo hole while I tried not to fall asleep. Now I'm just thinking of all the fun I'll have getting him to buy me a car!
Top Chef doesn't get a warm welcome from Boston teamsters. Padma called a slut. Contestants subjected to racist and homophobic slurs.
That warmonger Dorothy Gale, who couldn't even keep her dumb dog out of Miss Gulch's yard like any dog owner with brains or consideration for other people's property, fucked it all up. The Wicked Witch of the West was even worse (Glinda said so herself), and after she was killed and Dorothy overthrew the Wizard and sent him into exile, the rule-by-committee incompetence of the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion (an apt name if ever there was one) let Oz turn to shit and allowed the Gnome King to take over. Look at what happened to the Yellow Brick Road. And even though the Munchkins welcomed Dorothy as a liberator at first, they were also destroyed. The Wizard may not have been all he said he was, but at least under his rule, people could get up at 12 and start to work at 1, take an hour for lunch and then at 2 be done. Jolly good fun, right? Wrong. What about the coachman? The doorman? The Wizard's guard? The Wash and Brush Up Co.? It looks like they had to work pretty damn hard. Perhaps the worst thing about all this is the fact that Dorothy just went back to Kansas with the ruby slippers with the intention of spending the rest of her life there. And who knows what happened to Miss Gulch, the innocent victim of an unprovoked canine attack. And all of this blood was shed over a fucking pair of shoes! No war for ruby slippers!
A rage blog about dudes on New York City subways. Some are kind of hot though..
Damn, he's fine. I had no idea who he was, but had to look up his name after seeing this trailer. Anyone know anything about this dude?
Started in January. New city, didnt know anyone. She asked me to lunch my first week after some friendly conversations waiting for the elevator. She blew me in her car during lunch and I fucked her that same night. Things were cool. She works in another department as me but the same floor so not a lot of interaction but we kept it friendly. She asked me out a couple more times, but I was genuinely budy, and things just naturally fell off. I got a call from an HR person this morning and when I we t down there I was asked about making sexual remarks at work where people can overhear me she made it sound like I had been talking publicly about my sex life. I told her no, that I'm new, don't really socialize with anyone there and I'm pretty much in my office the majority of the day. She accepted that and she really didnt seem concerned. I brought it up to another guy that's in chick'sOP department and he told me that she had been openly talking about us fucking and he was pretty sure ANOTHER woman in his dept complained. Should I go tell chick to shut the fuck up? Forget about it, since it wasn't even me doing the talking and HR really didnt seem to care, just going through the ropes? It's a good job and I wouldn't mind hooking up with a few of my other co-workers.
He's married to a woman. He's 51 and insists he's still gay. He says he always wanted kids, but he couldn't find a man who was willing to settle down. Odd, since he was with the same guy for 10 years. But then he started talking about how kids need opposite sex parents, and it's not fair to make kids "pawns" in gay relationships to make "political statements". He also said he needed to "grow up" and become a responsible adult man, and he couldn't do that without a wife and kids. It seems odd that he says he's still gay, that his wife knows he's gay, yet he spouts anti-gay rhetoric. He was never a slut, or big time party gay; but he liked to have a good time. Now he makes himself out to be a homebody, while all other gays only care about partying and anonymous sex. When I reminded him that he was the only gay man I knew who used to be a stripper in the early 1990's, he became somewhat agitated and said he had to leave. He didn't bother to say goodbye when he walked away. Guess I touched a nerve. The sad thing is, he dumped his boyfriend of 10 years and married his female friend of 20 years. I thought about contacting his ex-bf, but figured after 10 years, I should let sleeping dogs lie.
**FOR LADIES ONLY**
during sex. Let's hear it!
Do we know anything about him?
Anyone see the premiere? I thought it was nicely produced but don't see how they can make an entire series out of it.
I know mine really likes what he's eating when he grunts while doing so.
I've been wondering whether this movie will be a big flop, or a mega hit. Well, this trailer makes me think the latter. If it is half a funny, half as exciting and half as stylish as this trailer it will be a HUGE HIT. Marvel is doing it right.
This is kind of an old story but I thought some DLers might enjoy hearing about one of the times someone hit me. It was in Galveston, TX. I'd hang out at my friends loft while my girlfriend was at school (I lived with her and her parents, had no wheels and didn't want to spend all day with her mom). Most days is go chill at this coffee shop called MOD. Galveston has a lot of doctors and med students because of UTMB and this one very handsome doctor would come in all of the time. Sometimes with his wife and little boy, but mostly he'd ride his bike over solo, and we'd always chat. Anyway, I invited him over to my friends loft to smoke some weed one afternoon and he was game. (Friend was at work btw). We smoked and I told him I wanted to fuck him. He tried to laugh it off, but I sat right next to him and started rubbing his thigh. He just continued to nervously laugh, I pointed out he wasn't stopping me ... So I'm fucking him on my friends bed. Face down ass up. His pants are next to me and I see his phone in the pocket. I decide to shoot some video. I get a great shot of my load seeping outta his ass (he didn't know I had his phone LOL). I quickly run to the bathroom and look at his texts. It's obvious which one is his wife and I send her the video along with a nice message. Come out the bathroom. He's got his pants on, my load still fresh in his ass, and he's asking if I have his phone LOL Busted! I give him the phone and the first thing he does is look at his texts. He starts screaming "What the fuck is wrong with you?!" And I very quickly walked to the door hoping he'd follow. He did but was screaming at me, then started poking me in the chest. Finally he punched me in the face. It hurt but I didn't fall down or anything. I wanted to laugh but it hurt too much. He said something like "thanks for ruining my life" and left. I did see him at MOD. A few times after that but we never talked.
Is this what music had come down to? Shaking your ass and getting naked nowadays seems to be the recipe for making a hit. This music video is deplorable.
After watching Behind the Candelabra, I felt really angry at Librace for what he did to Scott. What he did was pluck a kid who could have had a normal or great future (Scott wanted to be a vet) and ruined him. The reason Scott was a drug addict was because of Librace. Pedophilics and ephebophelics make me so angry. Little kids and teens are so defenseless and naiive, for an adult to manipulate the kid would be a very easy thing to do. What these lowlife adults are doing is ruining someone else's life. It's disgusting. Period. All through the movie I wanted strangle Librace. Toward the end, I was so sad for Scott who became messed up from being in a relationship with Scott which I thought Matt Damon did a great job portraying. Although, I thought Damon's age did not do justice to the truth which is that Scott was 16 (!) when taken in by Librace.

How do you feel when a colleague is casually hands on in the workplace in a non-creepy, non-sexual way? I'm thinking like a hand on the back as they squeeze by you in a congested area or a hand on your shoulder if they have to reach past you for something or you ask them to read something over you shoulder, etc. Or do you strictly believe "No Touching!"? I don't talk a lot and when I do I'm usually very quiet so people assume I'm being bitchy so I'm trying to find something non-verbal to combat the negative assumption.
Maybe from the area? I just heard that they're imposing a curfew.

Could speculation about a main "Walking Dead" character being gay be true? Fans of the popular AMC zombie show have long questioned the sexuality of one of the lead characters, Daryl. Now, creator Robert Kirkman is addressing the rumors after he was directly asked about Daryl's sexuality in the letter column to "The Walking Dead" #130. He told ComicBook.com, “All I can say is that it’s been discussed. We have very specific ideas about Daryl’s sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing… we’ll tackle it in the show.” Kirkman also reportedly stated that AMC "absolutely would" allow the show's creators to make Daryl gay. This revelation comes in wake of a recent blog on HuffPost that questioned: why are there no gays on "The Walking Dead"?

Just ended a relationship (for the second time) with a guy who has this attachment style. It was the most unworkable situation I have ever been in. From Wikipedia: [italic]People with a dismissive style of avoidant attachment tend to agree with these statements: "I am comfortable without close emotional relationships", "It is very important to me to feel independent and self-sufficient", and "I prefer not to depend on others or have others depend on me." People with this attachment style desire a high level of independence. The desire for independence often appears as an attempt to avoid attachment altogether. They view themselves as self-sufficient and invulnerable to feelings associated with being closely attached to others. They often deny needing close relationships. Some may even view close relationships as relatively unimportant. Not surprisingly, they seek less intimacy with relationship partners, whom they often view less positively than they view themselves. Investigators commonly note the defensive character of this attachment style. People with a dismissive–avoidant attachment style tend to suppress and hide their feelings, and they tend to deal with rejection by distancing themselves from the sources of rejection (i.e., their relationship partners).[/italic]

First- Laurie Garrett is senior fellow for global health at the Council on Foreign Relations and a Pulitzer Prize winning science writer. "Attention, World: You just don't get it." "You think there are magic bullets in some rich country's freezers that will instantly stop the relentless spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa? You think airport security guards in Los Angeles can look a traveler in the eyes and see infection, blocking that jet passenger's entry into La-la-land? You believe novelist Dan Brown's utterly absurd description of a World Health Organization that has a private C5-A military transport jet and disease SWAT team that can swoop into outbreaks, saving the world from contagion?" She then goes on to point out the global outbreak that would ensue if the disease took hold in Lagos, Nigeria. Well, this just happened in Lagos- NYDailyNews- MONROVIA, Liberia — Liberian officials fear Ebola could soon spread through the capital's (Lagos) largest slum after residents raided a quarantine center for suspected patients and took items including blood-stained sheets and mattresses. The violence in the West Point slum occurred late Saturday and was led by residents angry that patients were brought from other parts of the capital to the holding center, Tolbert Nyenswah, assistant health minister, said Sunday. It was not immediately clear how many patients had been at the center. West Point residents went on a "looting spree," stealing items from the clinic that were likely infected, said a senior police official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the press. The residents took medical equipment and mattresses and sheets that had bloodstains, he said. "All between the houses you could see people fleeing with items looted from the patients," the official said, adding that he now feared "the whole of West Point will be infected." Some of the looted items were visibly stained with blood, vomit and excrement, said Richard Kieh, who lives in the area.
Damn! I'd FHH. *After he is no longer infectious.

I've had two offers, the second of which almost went all the way. I got earnest money. Both times, the City nixed the deal because the intent of the buyers was to subdivide the land and cut down the trees. However, there might be a way to, umm, mitigate, fix, adjust (whatever they're calling a BRIBE these days,) mentioned in the most subtle way. I'm willing to pay the br.., uh, modest "consideration," myself just to (1) Get the deal over with and, (2) Tell you guys how it went down. Any sense whatsoever? It is 3 in the morning after all.
[quote]GTA teen's cover of "As Long as You Love Me" on Vine leads to record deal and real world stardom. Aug 19 2014 A year ago, Shawn Mendes filmed himself singing a tentative acoustic cover of the Justin Bieber song “As Long as You Love Me” and put the results on Vine. He wasn’t expecting much response. “I didn’t really want anything to happen; I just kind of wanted to see what people would think,” says Mendes, 16. “I posted that first Vine and woke up the next morning with 10,000 followers. That was pretty cool.” Mendes’s Bieber cover went viral and he soon became a popular presence on Vine, a service that allows users to share six-second video clips. He began posting Vines — mostly covers of popular songs — almost every day. “It just started to pick up in this snowball effect to where I am now, which is insane. Everything has come through Vine,” Mendes says in a recent phone interview. “I went to Toronto one afternoon for this Vine meet-up and there was 2,000 people there cheering my name. That was one of the biggest eye-openers of my life.” A few weeks later, managers and record labels came calling. Mendes soon signed with Island Records, which issued his self-titled EP late last month. It reached No. 1 on iTunes 37 minutes after it was released. Mendes is at the forefront of the first generation of Vine stars: singers, performers, dancers, comedians and whatevers who are attempting to use the online platform as a springboard to real-world success. Michael and Carissa Alvarado, the married folk-pop outfit who record as Us the Duo, signed to Republic Records this spring; they are widely thought to be the first Vine stars to land a major record deal. Like Mendes, they started with cover songs. And like Mendes, they soon found that being “Vine famous” took work. “It wasn’t this thing that happened by accident,” Michael Alvarado says. “We thought about every single post and changed our outfits for every video, and thought, ‘What’s the most strategic six seconds from this video that everyone can relate to?’” Except for Mendes, who seems to have wandered into tween stardom from a Frank Capra film, most Vine stars tend to be pragmatic about their path to fame. For every one who has worked since childhood to become the next Beyoncé, there are easily a dozen others who see Vine as a greased path to an amorphous, Kardashian-like celebrity. They are conversant in the language of site algorithms and demographics. They know just which six seconds of just which hit song to cover for maximum impact. Many spend days editing their footage; others enlist video directors. “To get on there specifically to be famous, I feel like that is probably the wrong motive,” warns Alvarado. “When you go into Vine with that mindset, it’s not going to happen like that.” Except sometimes it does: Recent Casablanca Records signee Dawin got famous after a Vine he made — attaching footage of the much-memed “Carlton dance” popularized on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to his own track, “Just Girly Things” — went viral. “I found the right platform at the right time,” says Dawin, an artist and producer from Brooklyn. “A lot of people were discovered from YouTube and then became amazing superstars. Justin Bieber had great success online, then became a global star. I feel like Vine is having the same effect. It’s actually happening faster than it did with YouTube.” Vine artists usually start with cover songs, then gradually introduce their own material (if they have any). They use Vine to drive traffic to their longer-form YouTube videos, or their Twitter or Instagram feeds. “All this feeds into building your brand,” says Keith Caulfield, associate director of charts and sales at Billboard. “If Shawn Mendes had tens of thousands of re-Vines and millions of views on YouTube, and Facebook impressions and Tumblr followers — when you add up all of those impressions, it becomes a tangible audience of people who are willing to engage with you and become part of your fan base.”
My partner is a tightwad. Last week, I ran into a long-lost friend on the street and we made dinner plans. I said, I'd love to introduce you to XX [my partner]. I texted my partner, suggested dinner, and we all went out. I paid for the friend. My partner now, a week later, is still bringing up how much dinner cost, why did I insist on going to dinner spur of the moment, and why did I pay for my friend. He keeps saying, "I hope that $150 dinner was worth it!" and mentioning how much we've spent lately on restaurants. What COULD have been a spontaneous meet-up and a fun night has now become a source of guilt for me. I told my partner this, and he doesn't get it. Am I right or is he??

Not sure what I think about this author's claims of ALS essentially stealing charitable funds from other organizations, but he makes a compelling argument. Thought this was the most interesting bit: [quote]It’s called moral licensing: the idea that doing one good action leads one to compensate by doing fewer good actions in the future. In a recent experiment, participants either selected a product from a selection of mostly “green” items (like an energy-efficient light bulb) or from a selection of mostly conventional items (like a regular light bulb). They were then told to perform a supposedly unrelated task. However, in this second task, the results were self-reported, so the participants had a financial incentive to lie; and they were invited to pay themselves out of an envelope, so they had an opportunity to steal as well. [quote]What happened? People who had previously purchased a green product were significantly more likely to both lie and steal than those who had purchased the conventional product. Their demonstration of ethical behavior subconsciously gave them license to act unethically when the chance arose. [quote]The explanation behind moral licensing is that people are often more concerned about looking good or feeling good rather than doing good. If you “do your bit” by buying an energy-efficient lightbulb, then your status as a good human being is less likely to be called into question if you subsequently steal. [quote]In terms of the conditions for the moral licensing effect to occur, the ice bucket challenge is perfect. The challenge gives you a way to very publicly demonstrate your altruism via a painful task, despite actually accomplishing very little (on average, not including those who don’t donate at all, a $40 gift, or 0.07% of the average American household’s income): it’s geared up to make you feel as good about your actions as possible, rather than to ensure that your actions do as much good as possible.
I'm 27 and have been working out since I'm 20.. But lately (as in: the past 9 months), I just can't be bothered with going to the gym anymore. Prepping meals, keeping my protein intake in mind all the time, lifting weights.. Wonder if any of you gym rats feel this way too. Maybe it's time for another sport.. I also don't feel the need anymore to look pumped all the time - there is more in life than dumbbells..
This dates back to the original Broadway production of RENT but carries over into the film adaptation as well: In the song "Today 4 U" the character Angel Dumott Schunard sings, "Like Thelma and Louise did when they got the blues/ Swan dove into the courtyard of the Gracie Mews." The line is anachronistic because that scene in RENT takes place in 1989 whereas "Thelma & Louise" didn't come out in theaters until 1991. What are yours?

He also collected designer caftans and Princess Diana memorial plates. **** Brace yourself because this story is truly horrifying. A 52-year-old man nicknamed the “Penis Collector” has been arrested by police in Slavonski Brod, a small city in eastern Croatia, on suspicion of possessing a collection of human body organs. The man was apprehended earlier this week. When authorities entered his apartment they found jars and jars of human penises soaking in formaldehyde. According to sources, the man, whose name has not been released, works as a registered nurse at a city hospital. He has no criminal record and has been described by some as “a family man,” though others say he is an alcoholic who often showed up to work drunk. “On behalf of all employees of the hospital, I have to say that we are very unpleasantly surprised by an event that threw a shadow over this hospital,” a hospital spokesperson said. “Our apologies to families of the deceased.” It is unclear how exactly police learned about the “collection.” Also unclear is how the man got his hands on so many human penises, though it is believed they were cut off from the dead bodies of hospital patients. The man, who has since been released from custody, now awaits criminal charges for disturbing the deceased, which has a maximum sentence of up to two years in jail.

I've been reading a lot of "just okay" books lately, and I'm craving something awesome. Yes, I've read Gone Girl. Some books I've read more recently that I really enjoyed are: John Dies at the End (and its sequel), The Magicians series, Horns by Joe Hill. My favorite author is Fran'z Kafka.

My sister, who lives out of state, has been living with a financially dependent woman for 7-8 years. The woman is a hoarder, has other psychological problems, and I recently learned she is verbally abusive to my sister. My sister is on disability, has her own mental issues, and will not be able to afford living in her home much longer. Any suggestions as to how to get this abusive, hoarding woman out of my sister's life? Does this woman have legal rights to living in the home since she has been there for over 7 years? Would reporting elder abuse help? Anyone here been in a similar situation? Really? What should I do?

It is really good! It features Prince's ex wife, Jose Canseco's ex, Eddie Murphy's ex, and R Kelly's ex. Kind of like real housewives, but it seems more real.

Eddie's wife is one of the most beautiful women that I have ever seen...she must have been paid a bundle to put up with his shit.

Sigh. One step forward, two steps back. I assume he's no longer with Rod-i-ney, either. What a waste. "Remember Josey Greenwell, the out country singer who was dating former A-List New York cast member Rodiney Santiago? He came out with gusto, playing pride events and doing photo spreads for DNA Magazine? Just like newcomer Steve Grand, he's no stranger to changing his name and identity to suit his needs. According to WeHo Confidential, Greenwell deleted all of his social media profiles about six months ago. Even his Wikipedia page got the axe. Now he's resurfaced as straight country singer Nate Green - complete with all new social media pages. He seems to have sanitized and "straightens" up all of his followers and comments. He deletes or hides any gay comments about him or any comments revealing he is really Josey Greenwell and gay. We googled and found a few local or web live interviews that he has done as Nate Green along with a few obscure articles where he denies being gay or tries to be straight. We even signed up for his fan pages and tried to comment on his social media pages to ask him if he is Josey Greenwell and why is he denying being gay and becoming a different person? Our comments never appeared on his sites and several of our gay friends tried to do the same but it seems like all comments that are remotely gay or from gay fans are not allowed on his sites and he won't allow you to be a fan or friend or follow. He only features straight women and girls and a few seemingly straight guys to comment on his sites or follow him or become his friend or fan online. One fan actually got a message from Nate Green/Josey Greenwell stating that if he did not stop trying to post gay related comments on Nate Green's sites he was going to use legal action against him. Green/Greenwell did not respond to a request for comment by the time this post published. I'll update it if he does."
7/31/2014 from IDOLATOR.COM: [italic]The black cat‘s out of the bag: Over six years after her last studio album, Discipline, Janet Jackson is working on a follow-up to her 2008 record. (!!!) In an interview with studio speaker company Barefoot Sound, vocal producer and engineer Ian Cross confirmed what many of Miss Jackson’s devoted fans have been waiting to hear ever since the conclusion of her Number Ones, Up Close and Personal Tour in 2011: Janet’s back in the recording studio, and she’s been working for a while now. “Janet [Jackson] and I had a little bit more of a special relationship because we became friends naturally,” Cross told Barefoot of their ongoing working relationship. “You meet a lot of people and you become friends with a couple of them, but sometimes there is one person you become really good friends with…She asked me to work on an album with her called Discipline in 2007 and, again, just do the same thing, produce the vocals. That led to her hiring me full-time to work with her. That’s where I’m at now.” The producer, who also helped to engineer Janet’s past three studio albums (Damita Jo, 20 Y.O. and Discipline), also confirmed that the upcoming record has been a particularly global experience this time around: “The Janet Jackson’s of the world can’t just spend their time in one studio in one city anymore…we’ve been working in Qatar. We’ve been working in Paris, the Middle East, and now we feel like we can work anywhere.” And as for what to expect? “The new album is going to be great. It’s a process. There’s a lot in store, yet to come. I can’t go into too many details but I think Janet Jackson’s fans are going to be very excited about the new album, and I think people who don’t know her as fans are going to be excited about it, too.” So excited, indeed.[/italic] ....and to the haters, the naysayers and everyone else who swore she was retired and that there was no new album coming? You can sit now.

This is just an excerpt, but shows shy what is happening in Ferguson is just the natural consequence of Empire and unlimited government. ------------- But of course the media is always part of the story, and a key part at that, whether we’re talking about US intervention in Libya or Missouri. Their role is often that of handmaiden to the State, but in this instance they’re getting in the way of carrying out the mission – which is to silence the people of Ferguson and crush the rebellion underfoot. Officer Wilson will never be charged, let alone prosecuted: far worse crimes have been committed by police officers in this country, and they almost always get off scot free. The reason is simple: the police embody the State, and the State cannot afford to be held accountable for its crimes, which are committed on a daily – nay, hourly – basis. To challenge the authority of a police officer to act with virtual impunity is to attack the very nature of all governments everywhere, which are nothing more – or less – than monopolies on the use of force in a given geographical area. In normal times, it’s relatively easy to maintain the illusion of "democracy," and "liberalism," with elections that are merely contests between two rival gangster clans, and a "free" yet mysteriously complicit media that has by now been almost entirely subsumed into the political class. In times like these, however, the masks come off, and the reality of the Thug State is revealed in all its brazen ugliness. That’s when journalists are arrested and thrown in jail cells along with the rest of the helots, and the MRAPs come rolling down the streets of residential neighborhoods. Yes, the militarization of the police is a Bad Thing: but it didn’t just pop up out of nowhere. The American State, in the year 2014, Anno Domini, is unlike any other the world has ever seen: it is not only superior militarily to all possible rivals, it is also imbued with an arrogance, an unmitigated hubris, of the sort not seen since the Roman Caesars. Most governments in the world limit their sphere of claimed authority to the geographical boundaries inherited from history. While Putin makes his little foray into Crimea and the Chinese may seek suzerainty over a few disputed atolls, no other nation on earth seeks to extend its monopoly on coercion over the entire surface of the earth. While the soldiers of the "Caliphate" may voice this goal as their ambition, no one with any sense takes them seriously, and for good reason: they can’t possibly succeed.

Former friends Spike Lee and Michael Rapaport are now warring over gentrification in Brooklyn borough of New York City and the quality of films they pro due. Rapaport fired the latest verbal missile at Lee during a visit Tuesday to HuffPost Live. Rapaport, who is producing and directing his new film My Man is a Loser, denounced the filmmaker a “s— stain” who is playing the race card when he discusses gentrification in New York. Then, he went on to disparage Lee’s filmmaking career. “When’s the last Spike Lee film you saw?” Rapaport asked host Marc Lamont Hill. “Nobody goes to see them s—-.” Despite coming to talk about his new film, Rapaport instead appropriated the balance of his interview time addressing Lee, who during a May interview on HuffPost Live called Rapaport “stupid” and said he “doesn’t know what he’s f—— talking about.” Lee also discounted Rapaport’s talents as a director, to which Rapaport fired back Tuesday, “I’m going to see him sooner or later,” Rapaport said, which some took as a a threat. “I wanna see you say ‘you’re stupid and your movie sucks’ right to my face.” Lee, whose industry beefs are legendary and go way back to the time he slammed Morgan Freeman fiercely for his subservient role in Driving Miss Daisy, responded to Rapaport saying a month earlier that Spike Lee had no business talking about Brooklyn’s gentrification since Lee lives on the Upper East Side in the neighboring borough of Manhattan.

Case in point, Matt Damon. Has anyone seen pictures of his wife. She's ugly without makeup. Plus, she's a bartender who probably isn't educated because if she was why would she be a bartender. To make things worse, she's already married and has a kid. Can you imagine, another man has touched her intimate parts. And Damon is pretty much taking a bite out of a pie that's already been half eaten. It's disgusting. And she doesn't even speak English well, so I'm assuming that they can't communicate meaningfully to each other because Matt can't speak Spanish. So uh...why Matt? You could have chosen another actress to get married to who actually looks pretty. I get the fact that you care for your privacy a whole lot but there are good people in Hollywood like Paul Bettany's wife who would be willing to give you privacy. Also why couldn't you have married a nurse or a doctor or an accountant? A respectable member of society? A bartender...omg really?! She MUST have a great personality. I mean she must have something going for her. It often baffles me the choices that some good guys make.

When I was younger I used to be able to drink gallons of it and feel relatively fine the next day. But now that I'm middle aged I can't have more than two pints. If I do I feel like complete shit the next day. Weird. I can still handle wine OK and tend not to overindulge on that. I've never been a huge fan of spirits but do you think vodka or gin would suit an aging man's body better than beer? It's certainly less fattening. I'm not interested in getting drunk anymore. I just want to catch a little buzz when I'm out or at home in the evening.

...and challenges fellow Datalounge icon Henry Cavill.
Seriously, her "singing" is the worst thing about the film. Perhaps the film might not have been greeted with such a hostile reception had they gotten a vocal double for her. She used a rather unconvincing one on the first episode of [italic]Here's Lucy[/italic], but Lisa Kirk could have matched her voice easily.
I'm feeling very nostalgic today, as the world goes down in flames.
The ones whom Hollywood producers want for the prestige Oscarbait movies? Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams. Who else?
Is there ANYONE hotter????
Melbourne, Australia Vienna, Vancouver and Toronto captured 2nd, 3rd and 4th places
CBS news just had this story on their program. It is almost incomprehensible that this many Americans need help to feed themselves. A good many of these individuals are military personnel that have experienced psychological problems as a result of war. Very sad, very, very sad when you consider the US military budget $684 billion that we know of.

Transgender boxing promoter Kellie Maloney says she “still” doesn’t think gay couples should raise children, but denies being homophobic. The former UKIP candidate and manager of Lennox Lewis revealed on Sunday that she is transgender, and has transitioned to female. Maloney had caused controversy previously by coming out against same-sex marriage, and saying she would ban pride marches. She also told the BBC in 2004 that she would not campaign in the London borough of Camden, because there were “too many gays”. Speaking to the Telegraph, Maloney claimed the previous comments were just “silly” remarks when she was “caught off guard”. She said: “Look, I was caught off guard. These were just silly, off-the-cuff remarks. I’m not homophobic. I have gay friends. “And my recent experiences have left me wiser and more tolerant. I’ve learnt a lot. “All I will say is that going through the transgender experience doesn’t mean suddenly I have the same opinions on everything as everyone in the LGBT community. “I still don’t think that children should be brought up in same-sex marriages.’’

Does anyone know where one might find these "private" Josh Ohl pics/vids? Would love to see... Thank you, DL!
What''s her story? It''s unusual for a soap star to cross over to tv/movies. Suddenly she is everywhere. Biggest Loser. Allergy Medicine ads. Print ads. I never thought of her as the main attraction for Days fans, but she must have a huge fanbase. I watched Days when she was the bitchy teenager causing trouble in Salem. I just never expected her to have such career longevity. My guess is she''s a really nice person. Anyone have any insider information?
Not just because I've thought he was fine as HELL since his Remington Steele days, but he's also a great actor and seems intelligent and kind. But, I also really admire that his wife hit the wall looks-wise in addition to gaining a lot of weight long-term, and he still seems to love her and be attracted. Keeping their family intact as well. A man among men if you ask me.
So Dad was gay.\ \ Greg had sex with Mom.\ \ Marcia made out with Jan.\ \ Anything else ?
EVEN THE DUMB LITTLE TWATS ON THIS 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?
First of all, death by natural causes will never trump suicide. (The only case of the former that brought out a comparable outbreak of sorrow was Lucille Ball) RW had all the elements that makes classic, newsworthy tragedy: TV comic famous for a few generations. Becomes big movie star. Hangs out with Hollywood hot crowd. Wins Oscar. Somewhat messy marriages. Despite all this, is not an asshole and is well known as being kind-hearted and charitable in private life. Despite all the good qualities is deeply unhappy. Star dims, has money troubles, reruns to TV where star flops spectacularly. Suicide. It will be hard to top.
....and it's a big fat FAIL. Seriously, this may be the end of her.
Why is he suddenly getting [italic]all[/italic] the big roles for young adult males? He came out of nowhere - hadn't done any film or tv work before last year. And he's not even cute. At all.
Old thread deleted, now don't break this one.
Have you ever gotten revenge on someone and left feeling satisfied? My 6th grade music teacher didn't pick me for choir, and for some reason called my parents and told them I had dandruff. I was really embarrassed and pissed off. I set my alarm for 1am and evey night I would call his house and if his wife would answer I would sit there quietly or hang up. If he answered I would just sit there until he hung up. That didn't really do mych and I got pretty frustrated. I guess I was hoping that I'd hear about a divorce or something. Anyway, so finally one day I stayed after class and when it was just us I asked him "Why are you such a bitch?" He grabbed my arm real tight and told me to get out of the classroom. I remember my arm hurt bad and I went to the restroom hoping it would be bruised but it wasn't. I went to the stall and kept slamming the door on my arm until it looked really bad. Then I went to the nurse and showed it to her. My dad got called in. My teacher admitted to grabbing my arm and he was fired. Or at least he was no longer working there anymore. I felt like I had won and actually accomplished something. And I ended up getting on choir but hated it so quit after like two weeks lol
How many men does Franco's character sleep with in this movie?
I follow Todd Sanfield and Justin Clynes. Any other recommendations?
I am shocked that my obnoxious hateful shit-stirring views about religious global trouble spots, or my obsessions about a ubiquitous DL poster, or something else really annoying, can't be posted! Why would such threads ever be taken down?

BEHIND closed doors, a furious Tom Cruise is at the center of two explosive scandals that could blow the lid off his private life, The National ENQUIRER has learned. While the Hollywood megastar has long insisted that he is not homosexual, nightmare rumors – said to be about the 52-year-old father of three – about his sexuality have made it into print. The incredible claims and outrageous allegations involve same sex love affairs, and appear in author Amy Sohn’s blockbuster book “The Actress,” which its publisher has promoted as a “big, juicy literary novel.” But The ENQUIRER can reveal that “The New York Times” and other websites have labeled the book a “roman a clef” – a novel about real people clothed as fiction – and they claim its main character is three-times divorced Cruise! In “The Actress,” Sohn offers a thinly veiled version of Cruise’s life, complete with sham marriages and “fake looking relationships with women,” say reports. Now sources close to Cruise have told of the Hollywood icon’s secret anguish at the sex slurs. Privately, he is blasting the latest lies and false claims that threaten to taint his straight-arrow image. “Tom is fit to be tied!” said an insider. “He is upset when fabricated stories about him are published as if they were the truth. He’s also upset that this novel suggests he is leading a closeted homosexual life.” Referring to the novel’s main character in its July 7 review, “The New York Times” said “obviously he is modeled on Mr. Cruise.” But the article also pointed out that the character, unlike Cruise, isn’t associated with the controversial religion Scientology. The character “has no religious affiliation with a famously litigious church that might go after the author or publisher,” the review noted. An insider added: “Tom must be beside himself over this book. It dredges up all the old gay rumors once again. This is a headache that will simply not go away!” Adding to the big-screen icon’s woes, a lawsuit involving his former Scientology auditor and the church’s legal affairs adviser, Marty Rathbun, could reveal even more secrets, said the source. The suit is set to be heard by a judge in Texas, and was filed against Scientology by Rathbun’s wife, Monique. In it, Rathbun claims she was harassed and even followed to work. Tom with Church of Scientology leader, David Miscavige Chad Slater made false statements about the actor’s sexuality “Marty previously claimed that Scientology spied on the actor’s every move,” added the insider. “If Tom is called to testify in the case, he could face some serious questioning about his private life – and it could settle the issue of whether or not Tom is gay.” Marty Rathbun was a Scientologist for 27 years. At one point, his title was “Inspector General of the Religious Technologies Center.” Before leaving the church in 2004, Rathbun, 57, conducted “audits” – a form of Scientology counseling – with a slew of celebrity members, including Cruise. In an interview with London’s “Independent,” Rathbun said Tom invited him to L.A. for auditing sessions in 2001 while the actor was divorcing his second wife, Nicole Kidman. At the time, the “Top Gun” star was also battling gay porn actor Chad Slater over outrageous, false statements about his sexuality. Cruise – who vigorously pursues those who question his sexual orientation – took on Slater after the hunk was quoted in a French magazine as saying he had an affair with Cruise. Slater later recanted. Experts say it’s possible information about Cruise’s private life could be divulged during testimo- ny in Monique’s court case. Top attorney Alison Triessl, who is not involved in the suit but studied it for The ENQUIRER, said: “Any conversation they (Rathbun and Cruise) had during the course of their friendship outside of the auditing process, regardless of how personal they may have been, may very well come out at trial.” Another former Scientologist agreed that Tom has plenty to fear if Rathbun testifies. “As Tom’s auditor, Marty knows everything about him. Nothing is hidden,” Margery Wakefield, who wrote the book “Testimony” about her Scientology experience, told The ENQUIRER. Scientology may also have maintained a secret file on Cruise, said a source. As The ENQUIRER reported in August 2013, a Scientology staffer reportedly provided Scientology leader David Miscavige with detailed, daily reports about the Cruise household for years, former officials said. Later, Cruise – without his knowledge or consent – was reportedly secretly videotaped via hidden cameras during his “auditing sessions.” The ENQUIRER also reported that ex Katie Holmes was also audited, according to sources, and the church has those tapes as well. Those tapes were also personally delivered to Miscavige, according to former Scientologist Claire Headley. “David seemed to know everything,” the source added. “And some of those secrets have the possibility of emerging in the Rathbun lawsuit.” ‘WE NEVER DISCLOSE SECRETS’- CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY Responds -- A lawyer for the Church of Scientology has blasted Rathbun to The National ENQUIRER in the past, saying he has “pursued his personal vendetta against” the church for years, “making numerous false, defamatory statements.” The lawyer also charged that Rathbun admitted he perjured himself in a court case involving Scientology. Reps from the church pointed out that auditors are Scientology ministers who “have a duty to keep such communications secret, much like a Roman Catholic priest has a religious obligation not to divulge the contents of confessions.” In the past, a church rep has also told The ENQUIRER: “The church treats the secrets of parishioners imparted to it as sacrosanct. It never discloses them.” The church has also previously denied that it audiotaped or videotaped subjects without their consent. Nor does the church keep “secret files” on its members.
Well gurl, this eventful season is about to end in read off! Will Peter, the newest housewife, finally check the Moose?

Madonna's toyboy Timor Steffens has revealed he prefers older women – because they remind him of his mum. The dancer, 26, has dated the chart-topping singer, 56, since January and despite her age, he hopes they will have children. In an interview with the Mirror, Timor said: “There is an age gap between me and Madonna but I don’t notice it. “My girlfriends have always been older than me and that’s how I like it. I learn a lot. “Mum is a big inspiration. She is a fighter, a strong independent woman, and any relationship I’ve had in the past was mostly with women that are independent and like to have an opinion.” Netherlands-born Timor told how his mum was so important as he grew up because he had no father figure when his parents split. He said: “I want to be a dad, it’s my goal to have my own family, that’s there in the back of my mind all the time.” Madonna first introduced Timor as her boyfriend at designer Rudolph Valentino’s New Year’s Eve Party in Switzerland. They have since been inseparable and Timor has become close to her four children. He said: “I hang out with a lot of celebrities. I hang out with their kids, I see the world. “But I do that because I genuinely care for who they are as a person. I’m a very loving person – if I hang out with them it’s because I have a big connection with them.” Timor says he and Madonna spend much of their time together in the gym. He said: “Madonna is so disciplined with the gym, which is great. “I’m in shape, I’ve got a washboard stomach but she inspires me to go that extra mile. I call it ‘besting’ when I workout really hard.” Speaking of Madonna’s religion, Kabbalah, he said: “I like it, it’s spiritual – I’m not a member of it but I am into it.” Having worked with the pop star on her music film secretprojectrevolution, Timor said she had inspired him creatively and as a person. He explained: “She always looks for new challenges in life. “When everyone walks the right path, she will walk the left path to show that she has a vision and her own way of expressing. "She is a very strong woman and doesn’t need to follow the mainstream. That’s what makes her an artist.” Madonna was today spotted in Ibiza after celebrating her birthday in Cannes earlier this week.
8 weeks after marriage and she's knocked up. According to some of the comments they are not as nice as they seem on tv.

Not sure if I'm envious because they have a group of friends that love them so much, or if I'm freaked out because it seems a bit much..
in attempts to school or correct others? He/she has trolled here now for years but is rarely called out. (Cue the deluge of phantom fans who'll now chime-in on how much they just adore her/him.) The poster appears to think of itself as wise/learned and seemingly in the know of every topic. But she just comes across as perpetually irritating and generally unwelcome and unsolicited in every thread he trolls.
From the beginning. Ive never seen it. Is it really funny or is it Arrested Development "funny".
Jesus Christ, she is disgusting. Her kids are going to be on meth in no time if they aren't already.
Reports indicate that for Batman V Superman Henry will have a shaved chest. Repeat: Reports indicate that for Batman V Superman Henry will have a shaved chest. Thus, the Man of Steel look (see link) will be gone. Do you think Henry's chest should be hairy or shaved for Batman V Superman?
And you can also add ways in which you tried to hide the gay from people, when you were a kid.
Or is "Full Circle" benign? Has anyone been to hear their concerts? It's in Venice, CA. Originally discussed on Huffpo, the page I linked describing it's philocophy doesn't make sense to me.
Watching her in "Hot in Cleveland". She looks so lousy. Betty White looks a lot better. Did MTM have a stroke? Or just a bad facelift?
Post your pics of love and affection.
Does anyone else love this show? It's hilarious, Krysten Ritter and James Van Der Beek are really hot, Dreama Walker is adorable.
As requested on the womanly butts thread: "Can someone start a fresh thread for men with curves. This one has been trolled to death. And the other thread is not really about curvy men, its about dudes that would make good trannies and thats not the same thing." So have at it. Who has them?
(1) Pictures provided by the hotel -- when you are taking pictures of the bathroom, a photo of bath products DOESN'T cut it. (2) Should a 4-star hotel bathroom have a tub with SHOWER CURTAINS? (3) Who in god's name uploads pictures of their kids onto TripAdvisor??

Any recommendations for a password keeper app for IOS? I'm constantly having to use the "forgot password" link for many accounts, websites etc so I'm thinking about downloading an app. There seem to be a lot of them. Any experiences? Thanks in advance.
The best Batman movie. So many awesome lines of dialogue in this movie. From the writer of Heathers.
Scary and disturbing and it's all true.Not an easy film to watch. Compliance 90 minutes 2012 Based on a true incident, this tense drama unfolds as a prank caller pretends to be a cop and convinces a restaurant manager to interrogate her teenaged employee about a supposed theft from a customer -- a situation that soon spins out of control. Cast:Ann Dowd, Dreama Walker, Pat Healy, Bill Camp, Philip Ettinger, James McCaffrey, Matt Servitto, Ashlie Atkinson, Nikiya Mathis, Ralph RodriguezDirector:Craig Zobel
She's surrounded by dressers and hair people and makeup artists while prancing around a set someplace. It's all very "busy actress" and such. What is she supposed to be, a movie star? Who the fuck does this delusional twat think she is and why, in the year 2014, are we still seeing her?
Please [italic]become[/italic] aware! [italic]Examples:[/italic] "Black Officer shoots, kills unarmed teen in Salt Lake City" "George Jefferson was right about white people" The OPs of both those threads are baiting. And, you will find plenty of racist-bait response postings in "Should Darren Wilson get the death penalty for the cold-blooded murder of Michael Brown" that includes the one from r-4.
Who's watching this? I love it!
I'm delighted! We'll get to see him yawning his way through scenes again and get to read all the drama with his fellow stars and his pimp... I mean, "mentor" David Forest. So, are you looking forward to his return?
Who's seen it?! WTF was going on? They were filming their sex romp for "Alfonso's" birthday?

FX does it again! The premiere tonight was killer.
There appears to be a thread about him here "like" every day. Why? Baffleck is the two-time Oscar winner not Damon.
Thank god she kept her clothes on.
I asked this about Anthony Recker earlier. Why or why not?
It seems to me like it is. Liberace is portrayed as being basically a flamer. He's also a lying weasel, promiscuous, flamboyant and vain to the point of disbelief. Scott Thorson is a drug addict, and a clueless idiot. Why couldn't there been someone more normal without these major flaws? Also does anyone feel like Liberace basically ruined Scott's life since he was the one who got him hooked on the drugs. If it were not for the plastic surgery than he would not have been a drug addict.
I've been looking at Youtube videos of men who are being drenched with ice water. Some are wearing white or light colored shirts, so when they are wet, their areolas are completely discernible and sometimes their nipple buds poke straight out. One local weatherman did it yesterday. He's built well, and his entire chest was visible afterward, curly black hairs pressing on his shirt, and dark brown areolas the size of half-dollars. I had to take a commercial break. I hope the video appears on the station's website. What a great way to raise money for an important cause!
This B+ list USA actor who you actually heard of before his current show is shacking up with his niece. He thinks it is fine because she is not blood related. She is barely legal and it has been going on for almost six months. He introduces her as his girlfriend but sometimes she lets it slip they are related... Daniel Sunjata "Graceland"
Can we panic yet?
Since realizing that there is a good chance (1 in 3, maybe 5) that most of humanity will be dead by the time we start hearing 2015's "Song of the Summer" (fuck you Izzy Az!- no wonder we have been doomed) what would you put on the great iPod in the sky?
only I really haven't. And that's the problem. I can't stop thinking about what it'd be like to really be with someone whom I find attractive and vice versa. I get that the people who tell me to 'lower my expectations' are well-intentioned, but I can't just pick anyone and say, 'oh, yeah, I want to spend the rest of my life -- such as it is -- with this person whom I'm not attracted to.' I try not to think about it; if there were a pill I could take where I just wouldn't be attracted to anyone or want anyone then I'd down a whole bottle full of 'em.
That leaves only the lawsuit. The lawsuit will be dropped fairly soon. All that sturm und drang over nothing, just as most of us suspected. Serves you right, hysterical pearl-clutchers. Now everything will be cool until the next gay witch hunt.
How does a 70 year old soap star have access to better plastic surgeons than people like Nicole Kidman and Meg Ryan?
The other threads are full. So, to continue our discussion of the previous... Will onetime Broadway "It boy" Cheyenne Jackson ever rebound or will he continue down his wacky path in 2014? What new addictions or maladies will Jackson come down with to generate more Press - Childhood Leukemia, Fibromyalgia, Gluten Intolerance? Will Cheyenne pull a Katie Holmes and finally get away from that cult? Approaching 40, Will Cheyenne ever top tweeting like 12 year-old girls? The drugs, the cults, the social climbing fiancee, and a big Gay summer wedding to wrap it all up. Place your bets, on what other surprises Ms. Jackson has in store for us?
I know she was married to Bogart and Jason Robards, but who else did she sleep with?
I felt the film was too sad for me to completely like it. I enjoyed watching the relationship between Scott and Librace evolve. Although I have to remark if anyone ever came to me and said I want to be everything to you "a husband, best friend, a lover", and start showering me with gifts, I would immediately back out of the relationship because it is weird, and it would mean he would hold the most power in the relationship. I felt bad for Scott who seemed to truly love Liberace, who, I doubt felt the same way for him. In the last scene, when Liberace said I asked you because you made me the happiest, I rolled my eyes. Ya as if. You are probably saying that because no one else would come to your deathbed.
I am. It's getting some respectable reviews, which is enough for me to give a summer series a try.
For most actors who age normally like Matt Damon and Brad Pitt. And for those cosmetically enhanced vampires like Tom Cruise, or Leonardo Di Caprio, they might last a bit longer, but they won't go past 50 that's for sure. It seems to me like that is the age when actor's careers end. Thoughts?
I almost remembering feeling as though he had semi-retired from the novel world, or from the entertainment world for that matter. I remember him giving away free stories on his web site. Now, in the 2010s, he seems to have had a big comeback, with everyone raving about his latest novels, he's getting movie deals, and he's finally become more public, going onto tv chat shows. Was he somewhat more quiet in the 2000s, regardless if that was done purposefully. He just seemed to have faded a bit. Maybe it was just me.
Openly gay actor/screenwriter Wentworth Miller will join the CW's ever-expanding roster of gay and possibly-gay actors when he joins "The Flash" this fall. "The Flash" is an "Arrow" spinoff and stars Grant Gustin as the titular superhero from the DC comics universe. Wentworth will play a villain (of course). In other Wentworth news, he is interviewed in latest issue of Details magazine and has the following to say: [quote] DETAILS: Last year you also publicly came out as gay. Was a burden lifted? Wentworth Miller: I feel more fully expressed. After Prison Break, I came to grips with the fact that my public persona was in misalignment with how I actually felt. I was out to a handful of people in my twenties, and once I hit 30, I was out to family and friends. But professionally, I was feeding a fantasy. I created this air of "We don't address that thing." [quote] DETAILS: Do you ever regret lying in interviews by saying "I'm not gay"? Wentworth Miller: My face was on billboards, and I thought it was my job to act a certain way. But I think audiences knew to a certain degree.
I broke my toe, and so I've been laid up the last 36 hours. I searched for some cool new music and found a couple of gems. Yes, they gave me Percocet. I narrowed down from 8 to 2. These were the two that blew me away- especially the video for the former, and the live Letterman appearance for the latter. The first is by Future Islands, "Seasons Change" and the song takes a few plays before you love it, but the video is jawdroppingly gorgeous and the dude is HAWWWTTT! They even show him without the cowboy hat. Dude is awesome sexy cowboy hot! The second is Kiesza. Inside.
When did they meet? Did Halls already have the kids? Did Bomer have much of a career at the time they got together?
Early this week, Monday I think, I switched on The View for a little while. I stopped watching the show quite a while ago. Barbara Walters was talking and Sherri Shepherd obnoxiously butted in. Barbara was obviously upset and slapped her down so she could finish what she was saying. Sherri shut up and looked like she was pouting and sneering for the rest of the show, even on the couch with some celeb. Every picture I've seen of her this week since then shows the same nasty attitude. Isn't she cutting her own throat? Is she on her way out, too, like Joy and Elisabeth? Sherri and Hasselbitch are why I stopped watching. How can air-head Sherri think that what she says matters or has any relevance to today's world? I know that everyone has the right to their own opinion, but vapid comments like she expresses do not deserve a public forum like The View.

It'll be the first time two Presidents have had sex with each other.

Janet Jackson teams up with producers Ian Cross and Tommy Parker overseas for her NEW album. LOL at the other thread being locked. Stay pressed, haters!
I can't blame her for not wanting to admit she likes cunt. Who would want such a stigma attached to them? But it's not like everyone doesn't already know. Especially after her contract marriage fell apart because her dumb beard/friend was careless. She's almost 50 years old. There is no reason to continue to lie.
Did anyone here read the famous book? I liked the book, but thought the film was a drag. Maybe they could have made more of it, but I don't really believe there was enough to the book to make a very good film.
who would have thought
The thread about Michael Cunningham's loo got me to thinking about some of my favorite books that were written by gay/lesbian authors, or about LGBT themes. Literate bitches unite! Let's hear your likes (and of course your dislikes too).
This is going to be so much fun.
That's a hell of a catch. Wow. You may not like her, but she knows how to choose them.
Unbelievable good, but my god, the ending. Did anyone see it?
I know we'll get a lot of funny replies but if anyone truly does have good ideas, along with links, please, PLEASE share. The Grooms: Two guys, home-bodies but active, kinda bearish. They have two young girls, about 11 and 12 whom they adore. They're really good guys. They live in a larger city now but both are from rural areas. One is actually a pretty big guy, about 6'4", the other not as tall. I believe they would love something for their home and I'd like to focus on something for their yard; maybe a bit of art or something you can use out by a pool. I realize there's gift certificates but a more tasteful, unique gift would be appreciated too, and I suck buying gifts in a big way. Help me? Please?
Where's my riot? Where's my looting? I almost died.
My choice would be Kiss Me Deadly. Fucking insane movie, I didn't know anything like this existed in the 50's. What are your choices?

Hello, this is Michelle Duggar. I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children. The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men – yes, I said men – to use women's and girls' restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only..."
Do you feel shallow when you meet someone's partner and they are not attractive or even interesting? Do you wonder what others see that you don't? Do you vow to keep an open mind and not judge? Do you think less of your friend for settling? What if it's really visceral and it's hate at first sight? Do you try to understand the attraction or do you reassess your friendship?
I had a lovely afternoon at Club Dallas this week. Nice and clean facility, great mix of guys, and I had a couple of hot connections. I was impressed. But which one is the best in the country?
Flame away, but the guy is a great interview and he's clearly quick-witted and smart as hell. Stern show replayed an interview with him today from right after "Sarah Marshall" and he was thoroughly engaging (really). One poignant part: Howard asked him about Amy Winehouse and whether her demons would get the best of her. Brand said he thought she'd be able to overcome them and be ok.
in junior high I thought it was boring and smelly and the kids were too brutish. I wish I had stuck with it until puberty hit.
This was on another thread but it deserves its own. I wonder if there is a list like this for free climbers.
One of the hottest under-appreciated designer hunks of the '80s. Kinda resembled Tom Thumb, only taller. Loved him in EUROTRASH. He still looks great today, but here's a pic from back then...

The matriarch of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" Michelle Duggar has been publicly campaigning against an anti-discrimination bill in her home state of Arkansas. Duggar is the voice behind a robocall opposing a civil rights proposal put forth by Alderman Matthew Petty. Petty devised the bill to handle complaints from Fayetteville residents who have suffered discrimination pertaining to housing, employment, and other public accommodations, according to the Fayetteville Flyer. In the robocall, Duggar -- who is a conservative Baptist -- addresses the issue of transgender individuals' right to use the proper restroom. Hello, this is Michelle Duggar. I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children. The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men – yes, I said men – to use women's and girls' restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only. I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls. I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space. We should never place the preference of an adult over the safety and innocence of a child. Parents, who do you want undressing next to your daughter at the public swimming pool’s private changing area? City Attorney Kit Williams has responded to criticism stemming from the bathroom argument, highlighting its offensive ignorance, according to the Arkansas Times. "The claim that this ordinance would provide predators with access to women's restrooms in order to assault or leer at girls or women is nothing more than fear-mongering," the statement read, in part. "This ordinance does allow transgender people to use the bathroom in which they feel most comfortable and physically safe. Transgender people — who are far more likely to be the victims of harassment and violence if forced to use a bathroom that is inconsistent with their gender identity or expression — deserve to have the ability to use the bathroom in peace and safety." Duggar's recording is associated with the Family Council, a group promoting "traditional" family values in Arkansas. The group claims the non-discrimination bill, formally known as ordinance 119, "threatens to infringe on the rights of churches as well as religious business people in Fayetteville." KFSM reported many people spoke out against the non-discrimination bill at a city council meeting, and some even took part in a rally. Last month, the Human Rights Campaign released a survey about discrimination against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in Arkansas. Twenty-five percent of respondents experienced employment discrimination; 37 percent experienced harassment at work; 39 percent experienced harassment from family; and 45 percent experienced harassment at school.
Sunday's published polls both found that a majority of decided voters want Scotland to stay within the UK alongside England, Wales and Northern Ireland. A poll for the Scotland on Sunday newspaper put support for UK membership at 47 percent, up 2 points; support for independence at 38 percent, up 4 points; and undecided voters at 15 percent. Another survey commissioned by the pro-independence campaign found 46 percent support for the UK; 42 percent for independence; and 12 percent undecided.
Gary Busey in Celebrity Big Brother homophobia row 20th August 2014, 5:16 PM, Gaz Jeffries Celebrity Big Brother contestant Gary Busey has sparked a homophobia row, after asking a housemate if he likes getting “butt-f**ked”. According to the Daily Star, the American actor made the remarks today to Strictly Come Dancing professional James Jordan, who is straight. While Jordan with joking with Will & Grace star Leslie Jordan, Busey asked him: “You are gay aren’t you?” Jordan tried to clarify that he was comfortable with his sexuality, but Busey continued mocking him, asking him whether he w”to get butt-f**ked”, and joking that he had a “little Vaseline tube in every part of his luggage”. Jordan warned him: “I’ve never hit a seventy year old before. “You should be careful what you say, you might be seventy years old but be careful what you say.” The series also features fomer UKIP candidate and boxing promoter Kellie Maloneyy, who revealed last Sunday that she is transgender, and has begun to transition. She entered the Celebrity Big Brother house on Monday, with leaks suggesting she would be “one of the most highly paid contestants ever”, picking up a rumoured £400,000 fee. Maloney attracted criticism last week when she said: “I’m not homophobic, I have gay friends… I still don’t think that children should be brought up in same-sex marriages.”
The head of the Missouri GOP is furious that residents of Ferguson have decided to fix their city's 12 percent voter turnout after a police officer shot and killed unarmed Michael Brown. The Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party has labeled an effort by some Ferguson residents to fix its paltry twelve-percent voter participation rate "disgusting." And he seems to defensively insinuate that Blacks vote for Democrats and whites vote for Republicans. "In an interview with Breitbart News, Missouri RNC executive director Matt Wills expressed outrage about the reports" of voter registration booths popping up in Ferguson, Breitbart reports. “If that’s not fanning the political flames, I don’t know what is,” Wills said, “I think it’s not only disgusting but completely inappropriate.” Wills explained that the shooting death of Michael Brown was a tragedy for everyone. “This is not just a tragedy for the African American community this is a tragedy for the Missouri community as well as the community of what we call America,” he said. “Injecting race into this conversation and into this tragedy, not only is not helpful, but it doesn’t help a continued conversation of justice and peace.” Wouldn't the director of a political party welcome more potential voters? If not, why not? MSNBC's Steve Benen answers that question. "It appears that some on the right find this 'disgusting,' which is a shame. I’m afraid that says more about those raising the complaints than it does those registering citizens to vote." The far-right wing site Daily Caller chose to inject fear mongering into the voter registration drive. "Liberal activists — including from the George Soros-funded Center for Constitutional Rights — have promoted voter registration booths at multiple locations in Ferguson, including at the roadside memorial marking the spot where Brown was shot." Salon notes that Ferguson "is majority black, but the mayor is white, and five of the six city council members are white. For members of the community who feel their interests aren’t being represented, the first step towards changing that is registering to vote." Also, reportedly, only three of the 53 Ferguson police officers are Black.
So that explains a lot.
Which ones stood out - and why?
Anyone know where I can find pics of hot guys wearing a Santa hat and little, or nothing else. I''ve googled but can find any good pics. It''s for a card for a buddy of mine. Hairy is better :) Thanks.
Canadians will know this ad. But everyone else, watch it, vote below and then comment. Do you find this political attack ad offensive
Great scene. Ted Wass was HOT.
Why can't he be our next president?
He nails this frau perfectly: "“She’s everything I dislike,” he wrote. “I have always loathed the Burtons for their vulgarity, commonness and crass bad taste, she combining the worst of US and English taste. “I treated her with authority, told her not to powder her nose, to come in front of the cameras with it shining. “She wanted compliments. She got none. “Don’t touch me like that,” she whined! “Her breasts, hanging and huge, were like those of a peasant woman suckling her young in Peru. On her fat, coarse hands more of the biggest diamonds and emeralds... “And this was the woman who is the greatest “draw”. In comparison everyone else looked ladylike.” And he didn't much care for Grace Kelly, either, saying of her: “If she did not photograph well, we would scarcely stop to look at her on the street... If both sides of her face were the same as the right half she wouldn’t be on the screen. That side is very heavy, like a bull calf, but the left side is intensely feminine and creates the counter-point.” Me-ow! They sure don't make queens like him anymore.
If I had unprotected anal with a guy on Prep does the Prep shield him from getting HIV from me or shield me (who is not on Prep) from getting HIV from him? I'm so confused and regretting sticking it in.
Why would AC say something like that? And to Howard Stern of all people?
I did a search and couldn't find any posts about this story.

I'm fascinated by this Tumblr site (apparently it's a zine by the same name in the UK). Very amusing pieces of ephemera... like a mashup of Kenneth Anger, After Dark magazine, old tintypes, film stills, old beefcake photos. Lots of fun.

A recent article on Slate.com about a Reddit subgroup known as "Gaybros" inspired the above conversation on HuffPost Live. Urban Dictionary defines a Gaybro as: "A gay man who acts masculine and is interested in guy stuff like sports, video games, military issues, grilling, knives, gear, working out, gadgets, tech, etc…" but also: "Young masculine homosexual males who exhibit no effeminate characteristics or interests and make a point of going on about how 'normal' they are. Previously they would have refered to themselves as straight acting but that's so 2005. Gaybros have no gay friends because they can't relate to other gay people. This is something else they insist on telling everyone." HuffPost Live invited the founder, Alex Deluca, as well as Tim Karu, a moderator of the Gaybros subreddit, to chat with HuffPost Live host Ahmed Shihab-Eldin, HuffPost Live Producer Mitchell Williams and HuffPost Gay Voices Editor Noah Michelson about the controversial Reddit group. In the clip above, Williams and Michelson discuss why they find the idea of the Gaybros movement somewhat troubling. What do you think about Gaybros?

[italic]Apparently, it became too much for AJ to endure. Last year, he committed suicide. He was just 16. The only solace that his mother, Sheryl Moore, had was that AJ had decided several months before that he wanted to be an organ donor. “He spent his entire life trying to make people feel good,” Moore said. Then the FDA stepped in. The government agency was okay to have AJ’s heart, lungs, kidneys and liver transplanted. But not his eyes. The reason: AJ was gay.[/italic] Imagine the poor straight guy who goes to sleep loving big boobs, and waking up and thinking his murse is totes adorbs!
Fired? Where'd he go?
These guys really think they are straight?!
I took a cooking class and I thought the chef was a hottie. I saw him in his t shirt before he put on the white coat and felt lust in my heart. He did not really flirt back but seemed receptive with smiles etc. \ \ When he left the room for a minute one of other students who knew him told me that he was straight and very married. \ \ After the class I apologized and he said that one should never apologize for being complimentary and kind. I think he meant it. \ \ I wish everyone felt this way.
This Making Of...special is fairly interesting. Mr. Jennifer Aniston is hot.
We have all heard of what's going on in Ferguson. And it brought this thought to mind. Just how bad is racism in the U.S.? I live in Canada and faced some racism but have never had anything violent happen to me. (I'm East Asian by the way). I've wanted for a long time to go to the U.S. but based on events in the past few years: Martin Trayvon, this, a couple harassed because their child doesn't "look like" them, I'm reconsidering. I just want your opinion on how bad racism in the America is. It sounds pretty serious to me when you are being gunned down because of your race. What's the point of living in a country where your life is in jeopardy?
I have a conference to go to; where do the gays go there? How about the bears?

After the murder of Michael Brown, I realized that the only good honky is a dead honky.
This famous and good-looking singer has dated several hot celebrity women and has even been married once or twice. However, while he hasn’t dated a woman in several years, he has been keeping busy. What has he been doing? Well, he was caught giving head to his own bodyguard in the bathroom of an Atlanta bar/restaurant a couple of months ago.

And those titties are POST breast reduction! Damn Dana.
I can totally envision them having candle lit dinners in a dark corner of NYC after long days of work at the ABC headquarters, after which they both fall asleep in each other's arms before David has a chance to tag that tight Cuban ass. I hope they show up hand in hand at Anderson and Andy Cohen's birthday extravaganza at Bedlam!
For the past few years I've been signing online petitions on Change.org, Credo, and a few other sites. My inbox inevitably ends up flooded with 20-30 emails a day from various causes, candidates, etc that I've never heard of much less signed up for. I've spent an hour here and there individually unsubscribing to all of this spam, but somehow I end up right back on all of these assholes' mailing lists, so I think one of the petition websites is sharing my information. I just don't give a fuck about any of their causes if they're going to spam me, (half the time looking for money). Fuck them all for greedily sharing my information. This happen to anyone else?
Continue on with the gossip
Tom Daley was way ahead of the other divers at today's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, where he won the gold medal, leaving Australia's Matthew Mitcham in 4th place. That should silence those who have been complaining he was not training enough since taking up with Dustin Lance Black and chasing celebrity status. Go, Tom.
So far I've just flipped around in it... Lee Grant is as no-nonsense as she appears. Unfortunately the "Valley of the Dolls" chapter is only four pages long -- she calls it "Gay Heaven" and says it was one of her first big Hollywood roles after being blacklisted. She liked Patty Duke and Barbara Parkins, but doesn't provide any stories, and thought Sharon Tate was the best of the three when it came to the role (and she misidentifies Martin Milner as Martin Mull). Many years later, she writes, she went to a drag production of the show, laughed a lot, and said the movie should have been made that way. There's a little more info about "Airport '75," which she says fits into the philosophy of "one for the money, two for the show" ("Airport was definitely for the money"). She says they had trouble getting through the scene where the plane is at the bottom of the sea and her character tries to open the door, only to be blocked by Brenda Vaccaro, because the two of them kept laughing at how stupid it was. The best anecdote had to do with a clause in her contract where she specified a stunt double in the scenes when tons of water gush into the plane, because she was afraid of getting hurt. But when it came time to film the scene, she writes, it was Olivia deHavilland who insisted on no stunt double and nearly got drowned. Lee decided that if a 70 year old woman could do it, she could do it. Like I said, not dishy, but at least the chapters are short. Going to read about "Fay" next. Has anyone else read this?
With some trepidation, we're going on a one week NCL cruise from NYC to Bermuda. We're allowed 1 bottle of wine per person but would rather substitute it for liquor (rum or vodka). Does anybody here have suggestions about smuggling booze on a cruise ship, or is it an exercise in futility? TIA!

DLers apparently tend to think of this site as aloof from the mainstream, yet the numerous ALS Challenge threads seem to suggest that, at least on occasion, we too are carried by, and paddle in, the same waters as the larger society. On example I recall is the proliferation of LOLcat threads several years ago. I think there was even a Valley of the Dolls/Helen Lawson LOLcat thread. What are other examples of base and common DL?

If you don't do the challenge, you need to donate $100 to ALS. Why are people bragging and posting videos of doing the challenge? It means they NOT donating (although, i do realize some folks will still donate) Someone explain this shit to me like I'm 5

According to British foreign secretary Philip Hammond. Oh dear.
Let's clear up a few things. There may have been some real anger and grief about the killing of a young black man, but that is totally over and it was very early on. Now, it is simply a way for angry black people to do to cops what they've always wanted but which is impossible one-on-one, or one-on-many. Time after time with these incidents we never seem to realize that. It takes just the right incident to spark a critical mass to get a little payback for all the indignities of a lifetime. While I abhor it and the fact that it is completely self-defeating, I understand it. Now that "the truth" is slowly coming out, the crowds are shrinking. No one will admit it, of course, but everyone is starting to realize the cop's story is the truth.
Clooney's future mother-in-law, Baria Alamuddin, is the Chairwoman of the "International Arab Charity." They sponsor a school in England, "Esmet Al Said," and promote Arab films in London. Their stated philosophy is as follows: "We feel that we now have a whole generation of young Arabs who have grown up in the West. It is more important than ever for Westerners to gain a sympathetic insight into the Arab mind." Such charities are illegal in the US, because they funnel money to the families of suicide bombers, especially the Palestinians. IAC probably does plenty of good. Still what is taught at their school, the guest lecturers and films presented. If Bill O'Reilly, who has already feuded with Clooney over his politics did an expose, I'd guarantee he'd easily find proof of anti-Western, anti-US, and anti-Sxmitism.
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?
What did they actually do? Do they still exist? We desperately need them or militant gay rights groups like them in other countries.

!) Watch ASMR videos on Youtube. If you don't know what ASMR is, look it up! It has everything to do with sensations and tingling. Perfect. 2) Binge-watch TV shows on Netflix. I don't know what it is about being stoned that makes barreling through 5 episodes of "Breaking Bad" or "The Wire" so enjoyable, but it really does. 3) Eating kettle chips and drinking orange juice. Something about the saltiness and crunchiness of the chips mixed with the sugary smoothness of OJ really hits the spot. 4) Jerking off. It is so much better stoned. I love it. Having sex on weed is a disaster though, IMO. I always break out in hysterical laughter. Every time. Jerking off is the better choice for me while high. At least when I crack up, I'm only annoying myself!

Mine, the 70's. My dad listened to a lot of Donna Summer and late 70’s disco in the car when we were driving around and stuff, I still love that music. was quite a spaced out kid. The only thing I thought about was how glamorous it would be to run away from home. It wasn’t even a rebellious thing really, I would ask my mom what I should pack if I run away. I was in love with Andy Gibb and pretended he was my boyfriend.

Ousted “Meet the Press” anchor David Gregory was paid $4 million to leave NBC and signed a contract not to speak out against the network, sources told Page Six. Gregory, 43, who moderated the show for six years, was unceremoniously dumped from the political program on Thursday after dismal ratings and months of speculation about his departure. He has been replaced by NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd. A source said Gregory’s contract extended into next year, so NBC had to pay him for the rest of the term, plus an extra fee to ensure his silence. In return, he was asked to sign a nondisparagement clause, which explains — despite the drama behind the scenes — his saccharine message on Twitter to announce his departure. “I leave NBC as I came — humbled and grateful. I love journalism, and serving as moderator of MTP was the highest honor there is,” he tweeted, adding, “I have great respect for my colleagues at NBC News and wish them all well. To the viewers, I say thank you.” But quietly, sources say, Gregory is “angry and humiliated” at the way he was treated by NBC suits who let him twist in the wind through months of painful speculation before finally pulling the plug. Page Six reported that Gregory confronted NBC brass last week after continuous rumors he would be replaced by Todd. NBC has tapped Andrea Mitchell to host this week’s show, denying Gregory a chance to say farewell — or anything else — on air. Todd takes over on Sept. 7. NBC declined to comment. Gregory’s future may be at CNN. Page Six has reported that the network was developing a pilot for him, while others speculate he could land on “Crossfire” with Newt Gingrich, which could use an authoritative moderator. Meanwhile, Ann Curry, another NBC colleague who suffered an awkward departure, lent Gregory support via Twitter. Quoting the Dalai Lama, she wrote: “@DavidGregory Hoping “in place of this turmoil come confidence,integrity+dignity, heroic qualities all human beings…aspire to.’-HHDL”
I live in a building with lots of actors, retired, and disabled people. I work a M-F office job. Yet on Sundays - daytime and evening - the laundry room is packed and often washers/dryers are not available due to the retired, disabled, and actors who I know are currently in Broadway shows all doing their laundry. Why does everyone who can do their laundry pretty much any other time choose to do it when a large population of us with very limited laundry time can do it? Anyone else have this problem?

Pat O'Brien has shred Nancy O’Dell, his partner from their days on the set of “Access Hollywood.” O’Brien claims O’Dellonce boasted to a crowded room that “she knew how to perform oral sex without actual oral sex.” He adds she once broke down in tears complaining that her first husband made her watch the show with him at night and demanded “that she had to tell him he was better looking than her.” She confessed she had never read a book “cover to cover,” he writes, O’Dell — now the co-host of “Entertainment Tonight” — “could read a teleprompter with the best of them; the problem was she never knew what she was saying,” he writes. She always had her eye on Mary Hart, then the longtime host of “Entertainment Tonight,” who was known as “the velvet claw.” “You’re going to get scratched but you won’t notice until you bleed,” he writes about working with Hart. “She was the silent vampire.”
I have no intention of doing this (if you believe it or not) but some of the shoe stores nowadays are huge and does anyone even notice if you walk out of the place with a brand new pair of shoes on your feet?

Turd. On Saturday, Phyllis Schlafly hosted a very special 25th anniversary edition of “Eagle Forum Live,” in which she received laudatory messages from a number of fans, including Iowa Republican congressman Steve King. King called in to congratulate Schlafly on her organization’s “wonderful success” and to tell her that he carries “in my jacket pocket every day” a copy of her 1964 book “A Choice Not An Echo”…right next to his Bible. Schlafly returned the praise, saying, “We try to get good people like Steve King situated in Congress, where they can keep us faithful to the Constitution.”
