the traffic, the traffic, the traffic, the lack of parking. Only nice thing is the weather. Why do people live here?
Alex Pettyfer = Gorgeous.
God I hate Christmas.
It's on!! And yes, I am already tearing up! Let's dish about it ... that hunky George Bailey. The saucy Violet Bick! Mean Mr. Potter, who's Drew Barrymore's uncle in real life. Donna Reed, mugging it up as Mary Bailey. The tragedy! The redemption! The broken dreams...and, of course, Clarence the angel.
I would make him rub the armpits of a line of fat women and then sniff his fingers. I want to see him open a can of biscuits in the nude. Light farts with a Bic lighter. I give him a coloring book and a 24 pack of crayons and make him color a few pages.
I have a friend from out of town staying with me for a couple of days. We fell asleep around 1 in the morning and now its noon and he's still asleep. Im no drill sergeant and I get he's on vacation but I have friends (mutual friends) coming soon plus his car is blocking my car so I cant run a few errands like I wanted to. Would I be a bitch for waking him up at 12:30? I just think its a really long time to sleep.
My boufriends mom is here and I offered to make her some tea. I put the tea kettle on and she asked why I dont just microwave the water. I gave her a dirty look.
So my partner decides that I should return to Tennessee with him for Christmas (gay male couple of ten years, his parents are very homophobic). Believing I actually have an invitation, I agree. We arrive yesterday (staying in the B&B) and go for dinner. His mother looks right through me and doesn't say a word. Today, I've just returned from lunch, same situation. I say, "How are you?" and she doesn't even register my presence. I feel as if I'm in a gay version of "The Sixth Sense." Father is hostile, but at least talks. Other brother nice, but obviously lives in fear. As does my partner, unfortunately. Yes, he's another Southern mamma's boy, and no, I won't leave him, I love him, although at this moment I'm tempted to both comfort him and rip his gutless guts out. I think they disinvited everybody else so it's just the five of us. I wonder if she might poison me, should I go with a taster? Stay in my room and watch cable? Leave immediately? We drove 20 hours to get to this hellhole.
I'm watching her in [b]The Mortal Storm[/b] on TCM and she is just terrible. I mean, you root for the Nazis to shoot better in the last reel. I can't remember any role, even [b]Back Street[/b] or [b]The Shop Around the Corner[/b], where she isn't dull, boring, or just plain shit. She is the Blythe Danner of the 1930s and 1940s.
From President Obama's speech today, see below. This is why it's important to vote Democratic in the November election. We need more representatives who will fight for the working man and woman, to keep these gains from being reversed and to move forward with more gains. When President Obama was elected, businesses where laying off 800,000 people a month; today, they are hiring 200,000 people a month. The unemployment rate has dropped from 10.9% in 2009 to 6.1% today. Over the last 4.5 years, businesses have created 10 million new jobs. This is the longest uninterrupted stretch of job creation in our nation's history. There are more job openings now than anytime since 2001. During the Obama Administration, the US has put more people back to work than in Europe, Japan, and every other advanced economy COMBINED. Of course, there are people who are still struggling, that is why we need to vote Democratic in all offices this November, to elect people who will fight for the working man and woman. We can't afford to have these gains reversed.
[quote]Very thoughtful article about the godawful relationship between the police unions and NYC Mayor DeBlasio. It certainly surprised me to hear that the police unions have attacked every NYC mayor in recent history, up to and including Giuliani... Here in New York, over the last few weeks, we've seen a turbulent and tragic series of events which might seem far-fetched in its plot line if had it unfolded in a novel. Protests erupted in the aftermath of a Staten Island grand jury's decision not to indict a police officer in the death of Eric Garner, an event which was itself catalyzed and primed by the roiling protests in response to the death of Michael Brown near St Louis. Major street protests followed. And then, as if to bring all the tension to a head, a deranged and violent man perpetrates what can only be called a street execution of two police officers waiting in their car in Bed-Stuy. The fact that the alleged assailant, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, attempted to kill his ex-girlfriend hours earlier in Maryland suggests there was some deeper, more personal impulse to violence and self-destruction behind his rampage. But there is no getting around the fact that at a minimum he grabbed on to the wave of protest against police brutality to provide some logic or rationale for his violent end. So now we have police and their critics, each with their own righteous aggrievement, thrust together for a collision with no good outcome for anyone involved. Before the killing of the two officers, actually just a day before, I wrote this post about Pat Lynch, the head of the biggest NYPD police union. By then, Lynch had asked officers to fill out forms requesting that the Mayor not attend their funerals if they died in the line of duty. This was followed by a union meeting in which Lynch appeared to call for a slowdown of police work in response to a lack of "support" and "respect" from the city's political leaders and went as far as to say de Blasio "is not running the city of New York. He thinks he’s running a fucking revolution.” As I said at the time, the head of the police union isn't an active member of the force. So he gets leeway serving officers might not. But still, as the official spokesman of the officers' labor organization this seemed like really over the top rhetoric. And with that lead-in it probably wasn't that surprising to see his vitriolic response following the deaths of officers Ramos and Liu in Brooklyn. At a press conference, Lynch didn't pussy-foot around with talk of rhetoric creating climates of tension or anything like that. He went right for it.

right now. On my TV. I'm excited...
It's awful. Joan Crawford is probably the only person who enjoyed it. Bette Davis looks horrible and gives a tedious performance.
A gay event? Fixed up by mutual friends? A bath house?
She gives off a butch vibe in White Christmas.\ \ Read this article from early in her career and learn about Jackie, her roommate of two years.\ \ Yes, there was the marriage to Ferrer and the kids and the final relationship to the dancer Dante. But there was also the alcoholism and sadness and she pinged like crazy. \ \ Was she?
Dildoes seems so cold and impersonal. Could someone explain why they turn you on to use them, particularly when you're alone?
I've got a slice of Grand Marnier and orange peel Panettone with a dark chocolate topping here. No, I won't share.
What do you do? To paraphrase Blanche Devereux, "Become an intellectual and find a retired Jew"?
Oh boy, what a dull movie. The fakest-looking and most badly lit sets since Brigadoon, forgettable songs (with the exception of the title song and "Snow"), musical numbers that don't really fit the atmosphere well (like that "Choreography" number), tepid romance subplots and an overlong screentime. I've seen Holiday Inn years ago and I really loved it - it was fast-paced and had a very cosy and Christmas-y atmosphere, but White Christmas is a lifeless Vistavision extravaganza that doesn't deserve its classic status.
Little bit of trivia for you: I'm almost certain that Charles Dickens' classic story A CHRISTMAS CAROL has more film versions than any other storyline. It's been made into a movie or television film more than 20 times. Do you have a favorite version ? Mine is the 1951 version entitled SCROOGE starring Alistair Sim.
It's great entertainment and hard to believe it premiered before 9/11, in 1999. But I'm surprised by how viscerally disgusting I find those white trash Italian fraus, Carmella especially. Why is wealthy David Chase such a miserable asshole? And why hasn't his ugly daughter "Hunter" (Meadow's friend) found other acting jobs?
I've always wanted winged doors ever since I saw that movie with them.
Sorry, I'm the obsessed Brenton Thwaites troll, but I've GOT to know what the consensus is!
I did this once. I took some family and few close friends to a ski resort. Exotic, Expensive. way expensive. but it was not the "picture perfect" Xmas I planned. One very close friend , I actually caught talking to the ticket agent before we even took off from the starting city, The rest of us were all excited , my friend was actuallly checking to see if he could change his ticket to be back sooner for his Girlfriend. Such a jerk, I think the perfect xmas would be in the mountains, snow,
DL, This thread's topic may or may not be partially or completely accurate. Opinions from those with more knowledge are requested. Deadline's article 12/19, linked in R2, states Lynton asked Rand's North Korean expert, Bennett, to view the film and give his opinion once it was completed. In contrast previous public comments claim Lynton sits on Rand's Board which supposedly has CIA links. Bennett and various US Gov't experts on North Korea were acting as technical advisers on the film since Day-1. So why didn't they ask for massive changes? Perhaps they didn't anticipate China's reactions? Now it's better to be in an adversarial relationship with North Korea than with China. "Educated Mind • on Dec 19, 2014 3:49 pm This Rand Employee Bruce Bennett is telling us the design of this film in a last ditch effort stir up dissent in North Korea now that the movie is dead. This film was a complete state Department “nail in the coffin” designed to catalyze the internal coup that has been brewing in North Korea. The fact that Michael Lynton is on the board of the Rand Corporation says it all. The Rand Corporation is a CIA shell company that does social engineering research to analyze how to shape public opinion. What the Rand Corporation failed to realize in all of their projected implications of the release of this film: was a CHINESE cyber attack. China knows what the US is up to, and they know that once Kim Jong Un is axed (which is inevitable), the natural resources and labor pool of North Korea are up for grabs. China used their massive computer power to hack the film, and earn favor with top brass in the North Korean ranks once the bidding begins for the “New” North Korea. China is now two feet inside the door. China had many other things to gain from the attack but this was their primary goal."
Sorry, my one frau post of the year. Im drunk on Xmas eve. Sue me.
Is there anything more of a turn off?
Merlin star Bradley James has landed the title role in Damien, Lifetime’s straight-to-series drama follow-up to 20th Century Fox’s classic horror film The Omen. In his TV directing debut, Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth) will helm and executive produce the first episode. Produced by Fox TV Studios, the six-episode Damien follows the adult life of Damien Thorn (James), the mysterious child from the 1976 film who has grown up, seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist, the most feared man throughout the ages. Damien, slated to premiere in 2015, is written and executive produced by Glen Mazzara via his 44 Strong Productions. Ross Fineman, who developed the project alongside Mazzara, executive produces through his Fineman Entertainment. Pancho Mansfield also serves as executive producer.
Was Rogen's presence what threw him over the edge? After all, Dennis Rodman seems to have the support of the DPRK regime.
Easy to ridicule, I know, but I've been watching the whole thing over the past couple days and am really into it. Yes, it's a soap opera and there are blinding anachronisms, but it's so cozy.
Is it anyone named Kardashian? Or possibly Darren Wilson. Kim Jong-Un is pretty filthy, too. But there can be only one, so who is it? I want names, people!
I read the following post by another poster: OP, you are essentially a stalker. The guy had no idea how you felt, he was nothing more than acquaintance, and clearly spotted your imbalance before you could even befriend him. That you consider this person you barely knew and for whom you held a one-sided, disproportionate crush to be you "first true love" speaks volumes to your frightening immaturity. When you do have "true love" with someone you know better than just being in your mysterious "program," I pity the poor object of your insecure affection. In short, you are a mental patient. Also, "ya" does not equal, "yeah." This is from the thread: How painful is it for you to part with your true love? There were a number of other posters on that thread who said that my "affections" for this guy was essentially a crush. I don't consider myself a stalker considering I try my best to avoid every and all situations where I have to interact with him and in situations where we have to interact, I am filled with anxiety. I would think that a stalker would need to constantly follow this guy around and like know his house number and makes trips to his house. Yes, I sometimes look at him in class and he knows...something about starring always alerts the person who is being starred at. But I don't think I am a stalker since I don't follow him around.
My mother finally let loose on her husband (not my real father) on his increasingly right-wing, tea-nut politics. He's been stockpiling weapons and first aid items. His emails are full of wild conspiracy theories about race wars and other shit. I'm supposed to drive up there tonight. I'm proud of her though for finally telling him that he's merely an old, frightened white guy, who felt a sense of losing the establishment control, and who melted down after a black guy got elected. I've been telling her that for a few years now. This should be fun.
I wonder if he died, maybe eaten by a cat?
Last night I espied her in my guest room, jacking off on one of the bed knobs. She doesn't know I saw. How do I tell her I know she did it and that I'd like her to clean it? Do most women do this kind of thing?
So why are you all alone right now. And what are you doing?
I am an Atheist who celebrates a secular Christmas. On Christmas I love to watch holiday-themes horror movies. Does anyone know of any good ones? The only recent one I have found is Silent Night but it looks bad from the trailer. I hear that the movie Sint from the Netherlands is good. It's about Santa killing people when Christmas falls on a full moon. Post your favorite holiday-themed horror movies. You can also include Winter-themed horror movies as well.
Heads of all the top studios and talent agencies say they NEVER received George Clooney and Bryan Lourd's petition in support of Sony Pictures!
Some of you DL smartasses should have no problem figuring this one out: A TV series developed a "situation" about a month before it wrapped forever. A young man, who'd been an extra on the show for over a year, was enjoying his status in a throuple which happened to include one of the show's producers as well as a theatrical producer. The extra made no secret about his relationship(s), making it clear to all the other primary extras (who worked several days a week) that he had power over them because of it. He would even text the show's producer to get a few of them taken out of particular scenes. He was able to get his wardrobe adjusted to make him look "hot." One day the leading lady was showing the producer (who was also her manager) a video. The extra sprung up behind her, put his hands on the shoulders of both the leading lady and the producer and said "Hey, what are you watching?" The leading lady quietly walked over to the other extras and asked them "Who is this guy and why does he seem to think he has the run of this place?" She'd noticed his antics before but this was the tipping point. She found out about the throuple situation. She was furious because she was very protective of her show and knew that because this guy was throwing his weight around simply because he was part of a double team literally getting screwed by the show's producer and that might not be such a good thing. She fired her manager/producer/friend and he never showed up on set for its final weeks. The extra was, of course, not allowed to work on the show in its final weeks. He's been on other sets since saying what a bitch and a diva the leading lady was when in fact she's the farthest thing from it. He is apparently continuing in the throuple despite the havoc he wreaked and keeps on complaining that he can't go on vacations with the married couple because they have a 14 year old son and he only gets to be with them for limited periods of time in Manhattan and in the summer in the Hamptons. He's "working on the kid," though, thinking if he befriends him then the kid will ask him to get asked along on the next famiy jaunt to places like Rio. Sure, like that'll happen. Any guesses?
Dec 23, 2014, 10:08 PM ET Former President George H.W. Bush was taken by ambulance to the Houston Methodist Hospital as a precaution after experiencing a shortness of breath Tuesday, his spokesman said. The former president, age 90, will be held for observation, again as a precaution, Bush spokesman Jim McGrath said. Houston Methodist is the same hospital were Bush spent nearly two months for a bronchitis-related cough and other health issues before he was released in January 2013 after treatment. "The President has been made aware that President Bush was admitted to the hospital. President Obama and the First Lady send their good wishes to the former President and the entire Bush family during this holiday season," White House Spokesperson Eric Schultz said in a statement. Bush's most recent public appearance was in November at an event in November at Texas A&M University he attended with his son, former President George W. Bush. He celebrated his 90th birthday in June by making a tandem parachute jump near his summer home in Maine. He also celebrated his 75th, 80th and 85th birthdays the same way. Bush began experiencing health problems in 1991 when, as president, he entered the hospital with an irregular heartbeat. Doctors diagnosed him as having Graves Disease, a thyroid condition that, by coincidence, his wife also had. Bush experienced a recurrence of the irregular heartbeat in February 2000, when he was attending a reception in Naples, Fla. He spent a night in the hospital, but smiled and joked with reporters the next day. In November 2012, he was admitted to a Houston hospital for bronchitis and a chronic cough. He was expected to return home well before Christmas, but remained hospitalized after the holiday, with officials saying he had a high fever and had been placed on a liquids-only diet. His family has said publicly the former president was no longer able to walk unassisted, a frustration for a man who enjoyed an active lifestyle of golf, fishing, jogging, and power walks on the beach near his summer home in Maine.
Home from work early and watching the 1950s "Dennis the Menace" on Antenna TV. It's been years since I've seen it, but it never occurred to me how obviousy gay Joseph Kearns, who played Mr. Wilson, was. In the comic strip, he was a paunchy, grouchy old man, but here he was the biggest fussbudget KA-WEEN of all time. He puts the "Mary!" into the Merry Christmas Marathon.
I just wanted to formally introduce myself. See you all in February.
Who else is going to be alone on Christmas? I've been to a few holiday parties etc but have no plans for the 25th. I think I'll rent some movies or maybe binge on one of those tv shows that everyone else has watched and loved, like The Wire or Homeland. Who else is alone on Christmas? What are you going to do? (And, of course, I'll check into Datalounge)
Based on the many Datalounge recommendations, I bought some. It's delicious but I'm not sure what to put in it and it definitely needs to be cut with something. DL Christmas Lushes, what would you put in your Broguiere? Rum? (light or dark?) Some kind of liqueur? Please advise. Also, how do you pronounce "Broguiere" anyway?
We want to know
Will Into the Woods, Blannie and Last Five Years herald the "rebirth" or the "end" of movie musicals? What will the casts of If/Then, The Last Ship, On The Town, Side Show, and Honeymoon in Vegas do Jan 5? Will Chita really return in The Fuckin' Visit? How much does Hunter Ryan miss Elaine? What happened to the guy who used to make these questions?
This morning "Live" did a feature on Kelly before the show. Hair, make-up, clothing. and interaction with staffers. This afternoon at a Thanksgiving dinner of ten her name came up. One of the guests said a former boyfriend was a dresser when Kelly was with Regis and said she's very nasty. Has anyone heard this about her?
R60, (from the Clooney getting married thread) I'm on FB under my name. I've just arranged for professional pics; what's there now is another amateur shot. I'm also on Gmail. Again, it's under my name (first&middle.) I'm calling your bluff. I'm in discussion for a few new "faux" reality series, and just left one because of the pay. I've also responded to another local comedy performance opportunity. I am NOT looking to be a star, as I'm a comedy/character actress. Right, the ditzy blond that everyone else teases. At least I'm told that I have "excellent, excellent sense of timing." We know casting isn't based on talent or even looks. Since I'm not bi or a super slut, I never expected to have a major career. Too bad I'm not related to Hal Kanter, as everyone asks. Whoever he was. I hinted at what Mr. Clooney promised to help me reveal, on last night's free question to a psychic thread. It would have been polite if he had told me to look elsewhere for representation, after I was told not to sign with a different manager. Obviously I must have totally misjudged his character and level of honesty. I've now moved on. There are those on DL that will always insult evryone else. I accept that fact.
J.J. McCullough a gay conservative says the Gay movement has jumped the shark. It is not a lifestyle, it is a sexual orientation. He says all the battles has been won, so why are we being an exhibitionist. It is counter productive. We want to show gay people are like everyone else, but now it has shifted in a radical and counter productive stance. And it holds itself up as the homosexual identity. It behooves gay people from coming out to be critical of Pride. Repellent and not who they are. We should mount a resistance. Dominated by a radical fringe. See the entire interview at link Do you agree?
Name names, Mike!
Looks like he sat on the Christmas Mouse
He looks really haggard . also he needs to wax that arm hair, so very creepy
I'm swilling beer and watching "Gremlins." Merry Christmas, everyone!
Bet he offed himself. That dude had a really hard life.
Everyone is around the pool and waiting for the fireworks to start. There's still plenty of ribs, chicken and burgers for everyone to dive back in. We have used a large quantity of ginger-ale, but that's to be expected whenever Cooper's around. He doesn't drink anything else. I was pleasantly surprised the local Costco potato salad was excellent. The stuff we get in LA's Costco's is awful. They sell that horrible Resers which is like mashed potatoes and mustard. All in all, I'd say our Dec. solute to America is coming along very well.
That's what friends are fooorrrr
Go to 1:48 of the video. I think Lena deserves a lot of the criticism she receives, but she is brave -yes, brave- to show herself like this in public.
Tiny Tim, of course. Also, the Ghost of Christmas Present is likely a big ol' gay bear. The housekeeper who steals the bed curtains is obviously a lesbian.
This is gooooood... [quote]All but a handful of the existing songs have been shredded, often retaining just a signature line or two and drowning it in desperately hip polyrhythmic sounds, aurally assaultive arrangements and inane new lyrics. The original songs, by Sia, Greg Kurstin and Gluck, are forgettable synthetic riffs that recall those boring filler tracks you skipped over on old Justin Timberlake albums. [quote]Every ounce of charm has been pulverized out of the musical in a strained effort to drag it into the social-media age. What's even sadder is that the same could be said for the film's young star, Quvenzhane Wallis, who brought heroic authenticity to her role in Beasts of the Southern Wild, creating a lyrical poster child for the marginalized poor. Here, she's reduced to one-note, processed pluckiness, as if she's been cloned from those overconfident children of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, who optioned the material and are also producers. [quote]This movie's notions of joy are aggressively fabricated, nowhere more so than when Grace gives Annie a whirlwind tour of the skypad, singing a butchered version of "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here." Choreographer Zach Woodlee's moves mostly involve running and flailing all over the place with no rhythm, while presumably for comic relief, an ingratiating Russian city employee (Stephanie Kurtzuba) galumphs around, getting in the way — much like cinematographer Michael Grady's lurching cameras. If there's a more awkward musical number ever committed to film, I can't recall it right now. Oh wait, there is one later with the big finale, "I Don't Need Anything But You," in which Wallis, Foxx and Byrne get to — gulp — dance, while everyone else stands and sways, wearing frozen smiles. These scenes make you wonder if Gluck has ever seen a movie musical. [quote]The film's pandering load of 21st century concessions is tiresome indeed, reaching its nadir when, OMG, Katy Perry tweets about Annie! [quote]When an orphan advocates, "Save your dreams for good stuff, like shopping with an unlimited credit card," the film seems to be pushing materialistic desire over any yearning for family. [quote]Even in a movie Auto-Tuned to within an inch of its life, Wallis clearly is no singer. [quote]But it's a telling statement that the playout song on the end credits is "Moonquake Lake," a disposable pop theme to a movie whose premiere Annie & Co. attend. (It features Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis and Rihanna, with other gratuitous celebrity cameos elsewhere.)
I'm surprised "noone" have posted this yet. Go on then, spew. Let the hate go forth.
Almost everything they sell under their store brand is great.
And what exactly were they doing?
A jury in Montreal has found Luka Magnotta guilty of first-degree murder in the killing and dismemberment of Chinese engineering student Jun Lin in 2012. The jury returned the verdict Tuesday, on its eighth day of deliberations.
He claims he was "making rather merry. " Was he drinking all day or were he and Mrs. Cratchit up all night doing atrocious things to each other?
She moved to New York two years ago, husband in tow and after a year couldnt bad mouth it eough and left posting post and after post on facebook about how awufl it was. That was October. Guess who is back for Christmas husband in tow. I live in Westchester and they are staying on the East Side. She asks if I want to have dinner. I say sure, but can we meet half way on the West Side. She says sure. Today she send me a note with the time and restaurant. It is two blocks from her hotel on the East Side. I checked for entrees and they start at $50+ So, Im supposed to schlep two hours in the rain to a place two blocks from her hotel and pay $100 for dinner with a fish who does nothing but bad mouth new york. ugh
Because some ASSHOLE is posting spoilers on the other Amazing Race thread and ruining the show for everyone. Anyone who posts spoilers on this thread will get banned immediately. Moving to Fridays. With Bethanny Frankel and Survivor veterans. No more Brenchal :(
Things may become very unpleasant indeed for many figures within the UK Establishment. Scotland Yard has a number of investigations under way looking at the abuse of children by British entertainers, politicians and figures reportedly high up in the Church of England, the judiciary and UK law enforcement. The Yard went public last week stressing that seasoned detectives find allegations of the murder of young boys by senior politicians in the 70s and 80's to be highly credible. London cops have been discussing the issues on a forum set up for and moderated by retired and serving members of the London Metropolitan Police (The Met). Who is the celebrity whose file they are discussing? One retired detective with 30 years service says the celebrity has had a file cataloguing their criminal activities ( which must be abuse of children in this discussion) which 'rocked me back on my heels' when he was shown it by a colleague.
What are you doing right now?
[quote]They tied the knot in 1996, but it would seem Kelly Ripa and husband Mark Consuelos are still very much in the honeymoon period almost two decades down the line. The Live! With Kelly And Michael host has revealed that the key to her successful marriage is down to the fact they ‘have lots of sex’. In an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, she explained: ‘I fundamentally believe that the more you do it, the more you do it. The less you do it, the less you do it.’
May your caftans be merry and bright and all your earrings sparkle like a cha-cha heel in a grease fire. Now shove off!
Why did you resign?
I've noticed that whenever I buy something, the salesperson, almost as if in conversation, asks for my address and phone no. Without thinking I give it. Then I realize that it will lead to more junk mail, sales calls, and, if they get hacked, identity theft. My new rule is never give out my address to merchants (for online shopping, you have to of course). Just say no.
Why are these the only Christmas movies in television rotation at Christmas time? Sure, there's the occasional showing of It's a Wonderful Life, but think of all the Christmas movies made over the years that are never shown. How about the Muppets Christmas Carol? Or Scrooge, the Musical? Even Oliver Twist would be nice to see. The old Alastair Sim version of A Christmas Carol used to be on quite a bit. Now we're lucky if they show it somewhere at 8pm christmas night, when the whole impact of a Christmas Eve visit is lost. Even Mr Magoo's Christmas Carol would be fun.
Let's say you were invited to a wedding of a close friend. And the person said you had to wear a cultural or religious garment to attend, as it is their custom. Some examples include wrapping your head in a scarf or wearing a yamaka or wearing a robe or even painting your face with war paint. The point is, it is culture to don a certain garment to respect the person's culture. So would you don this cultural garment, without hesitation? Vote below and discuss.
When a man wants to look like a woman, he has to add stuff on. When a woman wants to look like a man, all she has to do is take stuff off. Discuss.

In an interview with Seth Rogen on The Howard Stern Show last week. At about the 33 minute mark:
During oral bris ritual.
Adam Sandler Tops Forbes’ Most Overpaid Actors List December 23, 2014 | 11:18AM PT, Marianne Zumberge Forbes’ annual list of the top 10 most overpaid actors in Hollywood saw comedian Adam Sandler claim the top spot for the second year in a row. To compile the list, Forbes’ analysts examine the last three movies the actor was in and compare those combined grosses with his or her combined paycheck, generating an investment return figure for each star. By that model, Sandler returned about $3.20 for each dollar he was paid, a result of his recent comedic outings that have failed to perform at the box office, such as his rom-com with Drew Barrymore, “Blended.” Close behind Sandler is Johnny Depp, who returns $4.10 per dollar paid. Though Depp has ridden hit blockbusters such as the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise and “Alice in Wonderland” to box office (and bank account) success, audiences hesitated to shell out for gambles such as “Transcendence,” earning him the No. 2 spot. Rounding out the top three is Ben Stiller, returning $4.80 per dollar paid. Stiller has proven his profitability over the years, but missteps such as “Tower Heist” and “The Watch” were tough to overcome in this formula. The full top 10: 1. Adam Sandler: returns $3.20 for every $1 paid. 2. Johnny Depp: returns $4.10 for every $1 paid. 3. Ben Stiller: returns $4.80 for every $1 paid. 4. Ryan Reynolds: returns $4.90 for every $1 paid. 5.

He fought the good battle and lost yesterday morning. He was 9 years younger than me and he had done everything the right way his entire life. It really made me feel guilty for surviving him. I'm alone, chronic infection for 20+years. It didn't seem fair in the least, . My poor sister was understandably devastated. I would have changed places with him if it were at all possible. He was a successful electrical engineer with three children, 5 grand children and everything to live for. These sad happenings convince me even more the ridiculous idea of there being a god or God of relevance to anyone of us. It's all cause and effect and when all of one's life occurrences total equal a particular situation, one's life is brought to an end.
Would the wars and the fate of Europe and its possessions turned out differently? If so, how?

Cheyenne Jackson's gone Hollywood. Though the 39 year old actor and self proclaimed "Broadway Baby" came to fame via musicals like "All Shook Up" (Theater World Award, 2005) and "Xanadu" (Drama Desk nomination 2008) and promises to return, TV and film came calling soon thereafter and appear to have stuck. His most notable early filmed roles were as a heroic passenger in the Oscar-nominated true story United 93 (2006) and a recurring gig on Emmy favorite 30 Rock as Danny Baker, a singing actor with a voice so beautiful he gave Jenna Maroney "rage strokes." That first flush of mainstream success seemed to have been briefly eclipsed in the media by upheavals in his personal life, a divorce from his first husband and sobering up. But Cheyenne is eager to move on from that topic which he feels was overblown by the media. "Definitely with the gay press, it was rough there for a bit. Things were never not together; I think that's the misconception," he explains. Was it a rough patch? "I guess other people can think of it that way but to me it was just the next chapter. Time to clean up." And the next chapter is moving along well. After his brief note-perfect cameo in the Liberace movie Behind the Candelabra (2013) he's filmed several more roles including a small part as half of a gay cop couple affectionately referred to as 'The Policewomen' in one of this year's very best films LOVE IS STRANGE (2014, reviewed here). Ira Sachs moving drama recently won a handful of Spirit Award nominations. As a longtime fan of Cheyenne Jackson, I confess to an atypical case of the nerves during our phone interview from separate coasts. Cheyenne helpfully tells me to imagine him in his underwear, and we both laugh immediately realizing that is not going to help. 'No wait. Maybe not. Maybe not'.
Something to raise the Christmas spirit from Bruce Springsteen, who I wouldn't mind finding in my stocking tomorrow. HAWT.
So I have been interested in Islam for a while, I have read the Koran, I think its a very pure religion and is pure monotheism which is in my world view how it should be and I am starting to believe that it is the truth and that the Islamic life would be pretty peaceful There is one problem in that I find sexual attraction to women impossible and only other guys, I heard that is completely unacceptable in the religion and that I can't be a Muslim with that

A coworker is obsessed with other's money. Can't have a conversation without bringing up the topic. She's a wannabe gold digger but is so obvious about it that she scares actual prospects away. So far she's only been able to hang onto a bipolar mess who claims to have a trust fund which he'll use to take her to Bora Bora. Meanwhile she's swimming in debt by leasing BMWs and buying crappy jewelry. She just posted a picture of her new bracelet, Tiffany box prominently displayed. So sad.

Another excellent episode. Holy shit, that argument in the parking lot felt completely real... Damian Young was great. I loved the bloggers. And Mickey's apartment is exactly what I picture Momma's place to look like (minus the Valerie Cherish shrine).
THR: "The Bottom Line: As enchanting a screen version as the show's fans could desire" "Streep is quite wonderful, delivering something far richer than her karaoke turn in the clunky Mamma Mia! Her performances in the film adaptations of stage hits Doubt and August: Osage County are among her less remarkable work of recent years. But she reinvents this role from scratch, bringing powerful vocals, mischievous comedic instincts, bold physicality and raw feeling to the Witch. Her entrances and exits alone are priceless."
Thanks mainly to One Direction, older generations have just about wrapped their heads around the fact that teenage girls like to fantasize about their celebrity crushes getting it on with each other - but they still think that someone who is actually openly gay would be rejected as a teen idol. Troye already has a huge teen girl fanbase from YouTube - and they don't just see him as a "gay best friend" figure (like Tyler Oakley), but as a crush object. I expect him to become a household name when his debut album is released next year (he's already being promoted by Time magazine and the Grammys). His success will show people that being openly gay not only doesn't deter girls from squeeing over a celebrity, but can make them squee all the more - especially if he should step out with an equally cute bf (Connor Franta?). Celebrities like 1D who temper their gay-baiting with bearding and "I'm actually straight" twitter rants will suddenly seem like dinosaurs. You heard it here first.

It's over for Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton. E! News confirms the two have called it quits after 13 years together. The pair, who never married, have two children together, son Billy, 11, and daughter Nell, 7. "Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children," reps for both Burton and Carter tell E! News. "We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time." The 56-year-old director and the 48-year-old actress met in 2001 while filming Planet of the Apes, which Burton directed. After coupling up, the pair also continued their working relationship, teaming up for films such as 2003's Big Fish, 2005's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, 2007's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, 2010's Alice in Wonderland and 2012's Dark Shadows. In October 2013, the duo found themselves at the center of infidelity reports after a very grainy photo appeared in the New York Post that reportedly showed the director kissing a mystery blonde. Carter, meanwhile, instantly jumped to her partner's defense as speculation began to swirl and immediately slammed the fabricated report. "This is absolutely nonsense," a rep for the actress told E! News at the time. "The pictures were taken whilst they were out and the large group includes family, friends and work colleagues." Carter and Burton are known for their unconventional ways, as they reside in two adjoining houses in Belsize Park, London. Wishing the pair all the best.
I was watching a food history program and this was about chocolate. Well, it turns out that the inventor of M&Ms saw candy coated chocolate pieces in Europe and then "got an idea" to create M&Ms and market it as chocolate that wouldn't melt in your hands. This is clearly outright theft. How common do you think this practice was among companies?
It's the announcement that the thread is "by request," like the OP is some sort of surrogate mother expecting a nod of gratitude for dropping another turdlet onto the DL. Enough!
I used to adore this woman, I did. I grew up with her. But she got so fucking nasty and classist. And I think it was on the Trump reality show where she commonly referred to people as "poor" and "white trash" where I began to despise her.\ \ The documentary ''Joan Rivers - A Piece of Work'' only shows what a fucked up, damaged, sad old woman she''s become. With all her fame and wealth she craves even more.\ \ In her mind, she''s an absolute legend. Not just a famous comedian, but an outright legend. She really believes that.\ \ And the daughter! Melissa Rivers somehow sees herself as a celebrity. And did anyone see HER on that Trump show when they voted her off? She went apeshit crazy.\ \ Both of these women seem psychologically ill. It really makes me miss the ''old'' Joan Rivers.

Margaret Keane was kept in a state of virtual slavery by her psychopathic- sounding husband, Walter, in the 1960s, churning out uber-kitsch portraits, mainly of kids with huge, sad eyes. Amy Adam stars as Margaret in Tim Burton's upcoming biopic, Big Eyes. Will anyone make a guest appearance as Miss Crawford? Joan purchased four paintings by Keane and her Keane portrait can be seen on the cover of My Way of Life By the early 1960s, Keane prints and postcards were selling in the millions. You couldn’t walk into a Woolworths without seeing racks of them. Luminaries including Natalie Wood, Joan Crawford, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis and Kim Novak were buying the originals. “He was always pressuring me to do more,” she says. “‘Do one with a clown costume.’ Or: ‘Do two children on a rocking horse.’ One day he had this idea that I’d do this huge painting, his masterwork, to hang in the United Nations or somewhere. I had a month to do that.” The “masterwork” was called Tomorrow Forever. It depicted a hundred sad-looking, big-eyed children of all creeds standing in a line that stretches to the horizon. The organisers of the 1964 World’s Fair hung it in their Pavilion of Education. Walter felt deeply proud of the achievement. He wrote in his memoir that his dead grandmother told him in a vision that “Michelangelo has put your name up for nomination as a member of our inner circle saying that your masterwork Tomorrow Forever will live in the hearts and minds of men as has his work on the Sistine chapel.” The art critic John Canaday reviewed Tomorrow Forever for the New York Times: “This tasteless hack work contains about 100 children and hence it is about 100 times as bad as the average Keane.” Stung by the review, the World’s Fair took down the painting.
It's the last minute and I'm short on both time and money. I really don't know what to get people. I'm thinking of just giving a bunch of those Starbucks gift cards (unloaded, of course). That way they can load it up with however much they want and get whatever drink they want. Or are Peet's gift cards better?
(condensed version of his OP-ED) The gay community has a chip on its shoulder from the politicians and preachers that it once fought, passing it off as a never-again mentality. That’s bunk. It’s not a popular opinion, but it’s true: the gay lobby has become the bully. The absurdity of it all is that we’ve won. Not every member of the queer community. Far from it. And hardly all of our brothers, sisters and fellow queer people worldwide have experienced the same victory that we have. But if we’re talking about middle-class white gay men in Canada? Hell, we arguably have it better than the average straight guy. That’s not a comfortable, or perhaps even conceivable, thought for a population so well trained in cultural guerrilla warfare. At the end of the day, where does it end? Do we go after every person who actively works against us? Do we destroy every funder of anti-gay movements — like Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich? Do we attack everyone who speaks out or makes a one-off comment — like Ted Bird or reality-TV bachelor Juan Pablo? Institutionalized homophobia, transphobia, racism or discrimination should always be fought. But teasing out the personal convictions of anyone and using it as a basis to take them out? That’s exactly what we experienced, and we know how oppressive it feels. The queer community won its rights — and will continue to win its rights — by engaging the debate and winning. We won’t cement those rights in place by turning around and taking shots at those who haven’t come around to seeing us as normal, yet. And we don’t reduce violence by engaging the state to attack our enemies. We do the opposite. Gay rights are not a lucky break brought about by fooling the populace at large. Gay rights are not a fragile peace that can be broken by a man in a sandwich board with a strongly worded leaflet. Gay rights are the product of decades of struggle, and if you think a few holdouts are going to threaten that, you have another think coming, sister. If you want to stand up for closeted youth or marginalized queer populations or our oppressed cohorts overseas, do it not by demonizing the few who don’t like us, but by holding up the millions who do. -Justin Ling

It's funny how many parallels the '10s have with the '80s! First of all, there's the Royal Wedding. In 1981, Charles married Diana. In 2011, Will married Kate. Synthpop has really come back. Taylor Swift's latest album is all about imitating the '80s sound. All the '80s movies that have been remade this decade, from [italic]The Karate Kid[/italic], [italic]A Nightmare On Elm Street[/italic], [italic]Red Dawn[/italic], [italic]Endless Love[/italic], [italic]Robocop[/italic]etc. "We Are the World" was remade. And now, finally, "Do They Know It's Christmas" has been remade, and it features those [italic]ADORABLE[/italic] boys of One Direction!
To start off with: Harry Styles The "One Direction" superstar, known for his good looks, has four nipples. He is fairly open about the subject and even jokes, "I must have been a twin, but the other one went away and left its nipples behind."
Nigel, Nigel, Nigel!!! He throws a temper tantrum. Because he wanted to be the center of attention, and didn't get it. See link (at 8:00 at video) for his explosion!

Long running magazine editor gives up popular column
I think it's so strange when people act like torture and lies by the government is some new thing. FDR knew that Japan was going to bomb Pearl Harbor, but kept it secret so he had an excuse to enter WW2. He allowed thousands of innocent men and women to die so he could convince the "average person" to enter WW2. Fuck him, and the people that love his bullshit. You are the same moronic thug assholes that allowed Bush to invade and bomb the Middle East based on bullshit.

Is she a gay icon?

Because the other thread was deleted. [quote]Jay and Beyonce have an open relationship. He is not faithful, but neither is she. And he doesn't bother with Mya anymore— she is too old and a C-lister. He had a thing with Rita Ora but grew bored of her. I think he still fucks around with Rihanna, though it might be over. The Mrs. Carter tour was like reclaiming her territory. Anyone who has to boast about how great their marriage is probably has a shitty marriage. [quote]The rumors about their divorce are hilarious to me. You think that after so much PR effort bragging about their sexy marriage, Beyonce would EVER consider divorcing?! Hell no, not unless it is something sudden and on her terms, not the NY Post's. [quote]Sean and Charlize have a really, really unhealthy relationship. They are both mentally unstable, and I am not throwing that term around— I mean it genuinely. They both do a lot of coke together (and, I have also heard, oxy.) If they both shouted and screamed at and were even physical with each other, I would totally believe it. [quote]Jennifer Garner puts up with a lot of shit. Ben Affleck's drug use and gambling addiction have been bad lately, especially after he injured himself on the Batman set. But she is obsessed with Ben, and no matter what he does she will kind of always give him a pass. [quote]Because he will never leave her— she totally revived his career with her family-friendly image. He owes her too much, and is too invested in her to leave. But I think he really does love her and their children, though she does most of the work.
Cute story (via Outsports). Very brave of both of these boys to be out and proud in West Virginia of all places. Both student-athletes and erm, unstereotypical.
I think it was a uniquely 70s thing, but was it in reaction to something?
I''m hot. This troll I met in a bar last night was not. He wouldn''t leave me alone. I tried to be nice, so I chatted with him, but made it clear that I wasn''t interested in anything. I finally made a break for it and followed me outside and down to the corner. He stopped me and told me that he wants me SO BADLY and that he would pay me to fuck him. He offered me $500. I knew he was a doctor from our chat, so that was probably a drop in the bucket for him. My instinct told me "no," but the reality of some bills piling up told me to go for it, despite his ugliness. I agreed. We went back to his place a few blocks away, and this guy couldn''t get enough of me. I let him suck me off, and then I fucked him. I thought of a former bf in order to stay hard. He gave me $500 in cash, as agreed upon, thanked me, and I left. I feel kinda gross, but not bad enough not to try it again if offers are made.
12.17.14 Janet Jackson and her husband Wissam Al Mana made a rare public appearance this week, visiting children at a refugee camp in Jordan. Much like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow or unicorns, recent sightings of Janet Jackson have become the stuff of legend. We see her so infrequently that the world nearly stops every time we hear there's a new picture. What we can tell you is that Janet (who is looking fresh faced and good as usual) and her fabulously wealthy husband Wissam Al Mana use their time and resources to improves the lives of others. You'll recall that last time we saw Miss Jackson she was raising money for AmFAR. This week, she and Wissaam took pictures hugging, and playing with kids at Zaatari, a refugee camp in Jordan. Janet posted the photos on her Facebook page with the caption, "With UNICEF Zaatari Camp. Syria’s beautiful children. Their openness and love... so wonderful. Wissam and Janet." It's worth it to note that Rhythm Nation 1814, Janet's socio-political album, was released 25 years ago and the social issues she tackled remain current. It's great to see that her charity work was never a "fad" and she continues to give back. So where is the couple headed off to now? “Next visiting the children with @UNICEFJerusalem. Wissam and Janet,” she tweeted to her legions of fans.
Editor’s Note: Out of respect to gender identity, we, like many other publications, referred to the eight-year-old using gender-neutral “they” pronouns. Angelina Jolia and Brad Pitt definitely go down as two of the coolest parents in our book! Years after the 51-year-old father told Oprah his now eight-year-old Shiloh preferred the name John, in an interview with 'The Telegraph,' a child psychologist has commended the parents for showing their support for their child. Brad and Angie’s fourth-born was not even three-years-old in 2008, when the actor told Oprah Winfrey they would only reply to “John” within their home.
Sorry, the quotes are compulsory. Daddy is looking all grown-up these days.
where you allow your hubby to have sex with other guys? Just wondering. Margy Cho does this. I would not condone it myself.
Hot and slutty!
I just discovered these yesterday and love them!
A gorgeous guy I see a few times a week at a local coffee shop is physically perfect for me (and given the flirtation, a there seems to be a mutual attraction). But he has ear gauges. Not little ones, either. The plugs he wears look like they could be used as cookie cutters. They're a massive turn-off and I would never be able go get past it. What are your dealbreakers?
She's 43?!! Wow.
Alright ladies, place your bets. Will Zsa-Zsa buy the farm or will we find out that she died years ago?
Oy! ___________ A black teen was fatally shot by an officer on Tuesday night just two miles from Ferguson, Mo., police said. Antonio Martin, 18, was shot at a Mobil gas station in Berkeley, Mo., the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. The alleged victim's mother, Toni Martin, spoke to The Dispatch and confirmed that her son had been shot by police. It was originally reported that the shooting occurred early Wednesday. However, according to The Associated Press, the incident actually took place late Tuesday: County police spokesman Sgt. Brian Schellman says a Berkeley police officer was conducting a routine business check at a gas station around 11:15 p.m. Tuesday when he saw two men and approached them. Schellman says one of the men pulled a handgun and pointed it at the officer. The officer fired several shots, striking and fatally wounding the man. Schellman says that the second person fled and that the deceased man's handgun has been recovered. The Berkeley Police Department requested that St. Louis County Police Department's Crimes Against Persons Unit handle the investigation, The St. Louis County Police Department noted on its Facebook page. "At this time, we cannot confirm the identity of the deceased subject. The investigation is on-going and further details will be provided as the investigation proceeds," the Facebook notice said. The hashtag #AntonioMartin is trending on social media. Those at the scene, along with The Dispatch, report approximately 60 to 100 people gathered around the gas station where the shooting took place. Livestreams at the scene show residents verbally clashing with police. A woman identified as Martin's mother could be heard sobbing "That's my baby!" on the feed.
Because some of us like it!
CNN and FOX news have hundreds of their reporters hanging around Ferguson hoping to capture the riot that will ensue when the announcement comes from the court. All day long their talking heads have been discussing Ferguson, showing the mob pacing back and forth like kill-hungry predators in a zoo waiting for meat to be thrown to them. It's fucking cray-cray.
wtf will Stupid Face say next?
SHUT THE FUCK UP
My understanding was Hispanic people in Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, etc. descended from European Spaniards and that's why they all speak Spanish and call themselves Hispanic. Now I read Hispanic people are "Amerindians" -does that mean America Indian, as in Native Americans? Native Americans and Hispanics don't look the same, but neither do European Spaniards and Hispanics.
1. Don't go looking through your boyfriend's phone or email. 2. Lock your phone/email down with a password that only you know or the finger print technology. 3. Never be the first to say 'I love you'. 4. Have sex whenever he wants it. Even when you're not in the mood. Just fake it. It won't last long. If you won't fuck him someone else will. 5. Stay out of his family drama. Even in the most fucked up of families, family always wins out over boyfriends. Never make him choose. Offer an ear, be supportive, never make comments. They will always come back to bite you in the ass.
Because a hairy chest is still a thing of beauty...

This will be my very last thread on this guy. I've decided to completely forget about him; there is no point in devoting time, emotion and energy to a guy who I will never be in a relationship in. Do you guys think I should unfriend him on facebook. I looked at his pics on fb periodically and imagine various love scenarios involving him and myself. And I think I should unfriend him so that I no longer have access to these photos. What do you do when you are trying to forget about a crush? Do you think I should unfriend him?
They're [italic]baaack![/italic] And joining them are previous winners, Dmitry (Season 10) and Michelle (Season 11). Your thoughts?
Any recipes you guys could share? I'm not a cook!
In a nod to "the longevity of 's career really surprised " thread, whose career did you expect to last much longer than it actually did? My choices: Lohan--she was hyped as the next big star and she fizzled faster than anyone before, far more dramatically too. People on the thread about Mommie Dearest killing off Dunaway's career said she aged faster than any other actress they knew off. Clearly, they forgot about Lohan. Jennifer Aniston--yeah, she was always one-note, and I always thought Lisa Kudrow was the best part of Friends, but I thought that she would at least have an agent who would steer her in the right direction. Nicole Kidman--she is capable of being a good actress. She was even hyped to become a bigger star than Tom Cruise. Yeah, ok. What are your choice?
What do people do when shit just keeps happening. like jackie O , She lost another kid , still born , then her husband killed two months later. who can deal with shit like that. and she was no even rich yet.
She is going nuts. 13 songs leaked. The album wasn't suppose to come out until at least next spring. She never even did one photo shoot for the thing.
Kate Upton, Padma Lakshmi, Kelly Brook, Miranda Kerr?It's been Dita von Teese for a while but that includes a lot of kink which pays extremely well. I'm not counting one-night-tourist-hookers like Rihanna or second-tier pros (Lohan, Electra, Reid, etc). I'm also not including full-time beards who are only pretending to have sex for money (Huntington-Whiteley, Amal Clooney, Suki Whatshername).
Stories please! PS. I've never read a single nice thing about Sarah ever.
What are they, where do you get them and how much does the daily or weekly cost add up to? Any trade-offs? I don't smoke but am looking at nicotine products too. I've had noticeable results with Hydroxy Citrate in the past, but a medication change now has me turning into a fat foodie... Thanks, bitches.

I just have the streaming video portion of Netflix since they did that stupid shyt last summer. I check the site every Tues for new releases, but the pickings are always paltry. The last straw that made me cancel my Netflix subscription this week... they have a shytload of Indian films. I'm through

There are men, particularly some straight men, who will not wear the color pink. There are even some women who think that it is inappropriate for men to wear the color pink. I knew a an Indian man who wanted to wear a pink shirt but it was his wife who forbade him to wear it. This really upset him and also confused him. It's simply a color. A color that has been empowered by some. So, let's celebrate men wearing the color pink. Pink shirts; pink underwear; pink socks; pink ties; pink, pink, pink!!! Let's restore/inspire the confidence in men to feel good about wearing the color. Post your pics! Post your thoughts! If you are wary of men who wear the color pink, or such a sight causes you to look sort of negative towards such a man, post your reasons and why. It's anonymous and could be an interesting discussion. Let's show and talk about men in pink! I'll start off with a few pics.
Anyone else find this show absolutely hilarious?
[quote]When he’s working in New York, he shares his apartment downtown with his personal assistant, Spencer Soloman, a 38-year-old former dancer and camera man, who became close with Radcliffe’s family when he was teaching the actor to dance for “How to Succeed.” Soloman and Sam [i.e. his hunky bodyguard, pictured at link] function, in some ways, like older brothers: fun, but responsible and organized. Soloman plans Radcliffe’s schedule and talks to his father, agents and publicists two or three times a day; he might tell Radcliffe when he needs to shave for a photo shoot or search their apartment for a garment that his stylist wants him to wear for some occasion.
With so much identity thief going on in the world, the banks have to be careful. A TD Bank Group employee shut out a Toronto trans woman from her bank accounts and credit card because he didn’t like the sound of her voice on the phone, the woman alleges. “I got locked out of all my accounts because . . . my voice wasn’t completely perfect,” says Emily-Rose Kinsley, a self-employed business owner. “He was calling me ‘ma’am’ but then switched to ‘sir,’” she says. “[He] refused access [to my records] and then called me a man because of my voice and said that I was being locked out . . . [he] didn’t even ask me my security questions,” she claims. Kinsley says TD’s customer service representatives refused to listen to her when she called back and appeared to have no awareness of trans issues. “I even told them I was transsexual, and they just hung up,” she explains. “I was shocked; it made me cry.” Without access to her money, Kinsley was at a loss. “I couldn’t eat or smoke or anything for two days.” She says she used to trust TD with her money “but not anymore.” “They made me cry; they made me scared to be me. They told me I was a guy. I can’t trust anyone who would treat me with such disrespect.”
I always wait for the yum yum face. Looks like he stopped working out. But he is so affable it is hard to hate on him.
Is a boundary-obsessed lez to blame? [quote]And during an appearance on The Real last year she explained: 'I'm married to a man but I'm bisexual so I like both.

[quote]Margaret went on to say that their house is big enough that if the other one has lovers home they stay on separate sides of the property. [quote]'We have a really big house,' she said.

For years, amateur bodybuilder Mike Hoffman has been tempting fans with NSFW muscle flexing YouTube videos and half-naked pictures on Tumblr. But, the Texas-based Hoffman finally crossed the line into X-rated territory. He showed off the family jewels and then some in a video that went viral on Tumblr. We’d go into detail about what he does, but so long as you’re not at work or in public, we think it’s better if you sample the goods for yourself. We promise, it doesn’t disappoint. And, if you aren’t in a place to enjoy the video just yet, check out some pics of Hoffman wearing slightly more clothing. Since the video went viral, Mike created a video stating "Most of you know me by now. I just want to say I know there are videos going around of me. I wanted to say a few things. I'm not gay. Those videos I can understand making me look that way — and I respect gay people completely — but, I'm not gay. I'm straight."

Anyone have a recipe for corn pudding using frozen corn? Never made it before and someone requested it for Christmas.
Ugh. Can't stand that bitch, and apparently mom is the show mom from HELL.
Every week she tosses a little red meat at the Harry Potter fandom. A tweak to the folklore, an unexpected backstory, a multi-million dollar themepark. Drip, drip, drip. She seems to be having the most trouble of anyone in getting past it. How long before she drops words that she will be writing another Harry Potter book. (And when she does, I would put money on it getting savaged by the critics and ending up a sales disappointment.)

It sounds like fun.
I don't think that's what would work. Reason being how many adults now eat plain hamburgers, cheeseburgers that are about portion size for a child ? Maybe if they also keep the Big Mac, Quarter Pounder, & Quarter Pounder With Cheese.
Someone with a morbid sense of humour programmed the Godfather trilogy on TV over the Xmas period, so I watched the first one tonight while doing some last minute wrapping and card writing. Al Pacino was actually terrific in this. When did he become such a ham that I find it hard to reconcile this info?
My family always celebrated on Christmas Eve. We would have a big dinner with relatives, open some presents, do Secret Santa or White Elephant. On Christmas morning, it was just the immediate family and I never even saw my relatives on Christmas Day. It was like the holiday was over at Christmas Morning. I was kinda surprised when some people said their families didn't really celebrate Christmas Eve but had the dinner and relatives over on Christmas Day instead. How strange. When do you celebrate?
And I am freaking out about the contrast. I read that it can cause kidney failure?

They always shoot in these massive houses, uh, mansions. Are these their homes? Are these porn directors rich? I mean, can they be making THAT much money from a shitty porn site? Also, if it is their house, do they have special bedrooms for the fuck scenes? I mean, do they actually let the guys fuck on their living room sofa?
I'm watching the news and they're interviewing people at a gas station about how happy they are about it. I wonder how many of them voted for Romney.

So I'm reaching the end soon. I will never see the guy who I've dedicated many posts on datalounge to, again. Despite the fact that we never established much of a relationship, and not only was I not able to get out of the friend zone, I was not in the friend zone in the first place, I still feel upset and sad that I am never to be able to lay eyes on him again. I've been pretty upset the past few days thinking about it. And just yesterday while I was doing the dishes, I finally realized that the reason why he shot me dirty looks, why he won't look at me at all after a certain point is because, quite simply, that I am a loser. He thinks very little of me. The first time we met, he thought I was above average type of guy in our program; the second time we met, he thought the same, the third time we met, the same. But as different situation and problems presented themselves, I realized, because of my inadequacy in many different aspects, he looked down on me. It came as a shock to him which is why he reacted so violently the first time, and then he just resorted a softer way of dealing with me which was by avoiding me the best he could. So ya, even though we never really had much of a relationship, I still consider him to be my first true love, and find it painful to part with him. What about you?
That shouldn't prevent him from getting the 2016 nomination.

Free career advice: if your boss’ daughter shows up at your workplace, you might want to make sure everything is perfect. Or else she might just go nuts — in more ways than one. That’s exactly what happened aboard a Korean Air flight from New York’s JFK to Seoul. Officials say the CEO’s daughter, who is an executive vice president for the airline, delayed the flight’s takeoff, claiming her nuts were served improperly. Flight Exec Delays Flight After Going Nuts Over Improperly Served Nuts A nut controversy delayed a Korean Air Seoul-New York flight (Photo: Getty Images) Free career advice: if your boss’ daughter shows up at your workplace, you might want to make sure everything is perfect. Or else she might just go nuts — in more ways than one. That’s exactly what happened aboard a Korean Air flight from New York’s JFK to Seoul. Officials say the CEO’s daughter, who is an executive vice president for the airline, delayed the flight’s takeoff, claiming her nuts were served improperly. Related: Air Rage: Why Does Flying Make People So Crazy? According to AFP, the nutroversy occurred as the plane was taxiing toward the runaway. The VP, Cho Hyun Ah (who also goes by Heather Cho), reportedly got upset because she was served pre-flight macadamia nuts without being asked. Then she really got upset when the nuts were served in a packet instead of a bowl. Cho blamed the chief flight attendant for the grave lapse in nut-serving procedure and had the person booted off the plane. So the plane returned to the gate, the offending flight attendant left, and the plane — and its properly served nuts — went on to New York 11 minutes late. As you might imagine, news that an airline official delayed a plane full of 250 paying passengers in a fit over nuts isn’t playing well in South Korea. The main opposition party released a statement saying Cho “soiled the reputation of our flag carrier… Why did she have to make all that fuss because of some stupid macadamia nuts?” Korean Air is backing Cho. A spokesman tells AFP, Cho had lost confidence in the flight attendant’s ability to ensure the safety of the flight’s 250 passengers (because if flight attendants can’t handle a simple pre-flight snack, they can’t be trusted to open the emergency doors). The spokesman added the pilot on board the plane agreed with Cho’s decision. Korean air regulators are now investigating whether any air safety rules were broken along with any nut infractions.

I know someone who still posts pictures of himself with Madonna taken at a party 10 years ago. "Throwback Thursday" he writes, but it looks sad and empty. What kind of personal validation do they get? Most famous people in entertainment aren't that interesting so it must be a great let down if they get to know them.

I never understood why One Direction's management never makes Zayn Malik the lead singer. I mean he clearly has the best voice out of the group, he's a little skinny but still attractive. And he's the only one of the group that can hit those high falsetto note's effortlessly. But in their new video "Steal My Girl" (below) when Zayn's singing part comes on towards the end, they switch camera's to him and Harry Styles when it's clearly Zayn's voice throughout doing that high note NOT Harry. Is it because Zayn is a muslim that 1D's management downplay his role in the group? I'm just curious. What do you think DL?

So I went to Tokyo and was SO underwhelmed. It's like a sterile American city with ugly architecture and no street life. At all. The temples and gardens were interesting, but dull, really.

When will the obese, 'ranch-dressing stained' hospital gowned EHL realise that her obsession with Engelbert Humperdinck is ridiculous. Are her frantic phone calls to her cousin merely for the benefit of her eavesdropping mental health case worker Sue? Or maybe the little Indian doctor on her ward? Or is she just crazy and doesn't realise that the phone is unplugged...?
So who'll get the blame if someone blows up a theater full of people, Sony or Obama? I know who Fox will blame but what about the sane world? Sure the one to blame would be the terrorists but that's too easy.

An anti-gay pastor in New Orleans who once called masturbation "immoral" was arrested recently for doing just that at a public park. Grant Storms, who gained notoriety for using a bullhorn to protest an annual gay festival in Louisiana, was busted Friday after two women allegedly saw him servicing himself in his van, the Times-Picayune newspaper reported. A woman who parked next to Storms' vehicle at Lafreniere Park in Metairie was taking her children out of her car when she allegedly witnessed the so-called "Christian patriot" seated behind the wheel with "his zipper down," police said on Monday. She saw him performing the sex act, then told another woman at the park, who approached his van in order to confirm the accusation, authorities said. The 53-year-old pastor allegedly tried to cover himself when he noticed her looking at him. The women reported Storms to a park officer, who then detained him until police arrived. Storms initially claimed he was simply urinating into a bottle, but later admitted to pleasuring himself, WDSU 6 News reported. Although there were children in the park at the time of the incident, police did not believe it was related to the pastor's actions. "I believe that there was some people in the park, but I'm not sure if the presence of the children had a direct correlation to the incident," sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Larry Dyess told WWL news radio. Storms has regularly used signs and a bullhorn to protest Southern Decadence, a three-day gay festival in the French Quarter held every year around Labor Day, for nearly a decade. He often referred to the event as "depraved." "He's done everything through the years to disturb that and try to make it into something nasty that it's not," the festival's organizer, Chuck Robinson, told the Times-Picayune. "If the Rev. Storms is caught doing that in our city, it is ludicrous and heinous that he would have the nerve to complain about any kind of sexuality.
Gwyneth Paltrow, the taut, kale-filled stomach behind upscale lifestyle brand GOOP, was rejected as an editor for Yahoo Food, the New York Times reports, in an article that also broke the news that Yahoo Food exists. Paltrow, whose money-losing newsletter/cookbook brand is a bible for residents of richer suburbs, sadly missed out on the prestigious position with the internet's 12th-ranked (as of May, according to the NYT) food website because Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer only hires bachelors of the arts and/or sciences. The Times: Even though the actress Gwyneth Paltrow had created a best-selling cookbook and popular lifestyle blog, Mayer, who habitually asked deputies where they attended college, balked at hiring her as a contributing editor for Yahoo Food. According to one executive, Mayer disapproved of the fact that Paltrow did not graduate college. Paltrow studied anthropology at UC Santa Barbara before dropping out to win an Academy Award and make millions as an actress, a misstep from which her internet food writing career never recovered. SUNY Plattsburgh alumna and Cherry Bombe founder Kerry Diamond, who owns three restaurants in Brooklyn, was named EIC of Yahoo Food in September. Stay in school.

Now if you're gay or lesbian, I know what you're going to tell me: She doesn't like gays. What she has said when pressured is that she doesn't believe being gay is "God's best." Obviously, I strongly disagree with that statement. I think deep in her heart, she probably does too, but she repeats that same phrase as Joel Osteen out of fear that the really hardcore Christian right would attack her. They don't much like her as it is because plenty of people still don't think it's right that a woman would be preaching. Many people also take issue with the fact she didn't attend formal seminary school. Personally, I admire that she is a woman preaching in a man's world, and that she learned her lessons by living a hard life. The bottom line is that I don't have agree with everything someone says to find value in the rest of what they say. Ninety-nine percent of the time, Joyce is talking about problems and challenge I really can identify with. What she says has, without any doubt, been an incredible blessing in my life. And while I tithe to my very progressive and accepting church, I also give money to Joyce Meyer Ministries every month because I believe in what she is doing with her message and with her work in third-world countries.

I''m thinking about doing this. There''s this guy at the gym I''m obsessed with. He seems totally narcissistic and I suspect he would love to have another guy worship him. Has anyone attempted this?
and his muscle mafia? I''ve got to know. I am not new to the online porn world. But why do I buy this site and it''s premise hook, line and sinker? Surely someone has busted him or revealed his identity by this point.\ \ Maybe because the site is so expensive and you can''t just join and steal all the videos. Maybe it''s because I only get a snippet here and there through torrents I am able to download.\ \ Someone please disabuse me of my fascination.
I can't figure it out. It's not that we need someone to do actual heavy lifting for us, or to physically protect me. All muscles really mean is that someone is physically disciplined for a long period of time and has enough leisure time to go regularly to the gym.
"Forty years ago, I did something terribly wrong that I deeply regret. I have been working to atone for it ever since. I've decided to address these issues publicly because two months ago, various news organizations published a recording made by my then-wife, Faye Grant, during a confidential marriage therapy session in January, 2012. This session was recorded without the therapist's or my knowledge or consent." "On the recording, I described events that took place 20, 32, and 40 years ago," Collins continues. "The publication of the recording has resulted in assumptions and innuendos about what I did that go far beyond what actually occurred. As difficult as this is, I want people to know the truth." "I did have an opportunity to do so with one of the women, 15 years later. I apologized and she was extraordinarily gracious," said Collins, who remains in a protracted divorce battle with Grant. "But after I learned in the course of my treatment that my being direct about such matters could actually make things worse for them by opening old wounds, I have not approached the other two women, one of whom is now in her 50s and the other in her 30s."

"As many of you know I work part time at the door of (gay bar). I really enjoy the diversity of the people I get to meet and find it very interesting to find out how many people from around the world that come through our doors. I even met a young man who as it turns out, our great grandfathers were brothers. For the past several months there has been a young man coming in that is here from Saudi Arabia. Last Friday night there was something different about him, he was nervous and scared. During the night he unfortunately lost his cell phone and a customer literally had to drag him out of the bar at close. One of our bartenders who had befriended him saw him still outside when we left and the young man was in tears. He was being forced to go back home to Saudi Arabia where his family was waiting to kill him for being gay. In Saudi Arabia it is not a crime for a family to kill one of their own for being gay. As I write this it is highly unlikely this young man is still alive."
"The meaning of marriage cannot be redefined, because its meaning lies in our very nature," the Catholic leader wrote. "Therefore, regardless of what law is enacted, marriage remains the union of one man and one woman – by the very design of nature, it cannot be otherwise."

I never know which one to buy. As a kid I liked Maypo.
I'm enjoying Davd Ritz's 500 page tome "Respect" his biograhy of Aretha Franklin which is a lot franker than I expected it to be. He met Aretha several times and has written on and worked with all the major names, like Marvin, Smokey, Ray Charles and others. I am up to page 100 when Aretha is still only 18 and signed with Capitol, so the Atlantic and Arista years are much later. He nails though the story of her first two children - and names the boys who fathered them. Not her father, though he also impregnated a different 12 year old. Aretha was 12 when first pregnant, and 14 when she had her second child. It seems the boys were just hookups and not involved with the children who certainly didn't stop their teenage mother from travelling and singing. Her famous father the Reverend Franklin had an eye for the ladies and had several relationships, including Clara Ward, after Aretha's mother left the family when they were young. Aretha and her sister Erma were boy-crazy, but the other sister Carolyn was lesbian. Ritz writes revealingly on the gospel church world where a lot of the men were gay, as were Billy Preston, James Cleveland and others. Later gay friends of Aretha's were Luther Vandross nd Michael Narada Walden who produced her later hits. Its shaping up to be a fascinating read for anyone interested in this soul, gospel world, and how Aretha became the star she did. Even now when teenage pregnancy is commonplace twelve does seem rather shockingly young to start reproducing, let alone 50 years ago, but the Franklins were a wealthy infulential family with that famous preacher father with important friends.

Colton Haynes: The Saga Continues... here.
The authors investigated the role of homosexual arousal in exclusively heterosexual men who admitted negative affect toward homosexual individuals. Participants consisted of a group of homophobic men (n = 35) and a group of nonhomophobic men (n = 29); they were assigned to groups on the basis of their scores on the Index of Homophobia (W. W. Hudson & W. A. Ricketts, 1980). The men were exposed to sexually explicit erotic stimuli consisting of heterosexual, male homosexual, and lesbian videotapes, and changes in penile circumference were monitored. They also completed an Aggression Questionnaire (A. H. Buss & M. Perry, 1992). Both groups exhibited increases in penile circumference to the heterosexual and female homosexual videos. Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli. The groups did not differ in aggression. Homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies. This study examined the relationship between homophobia (defined as self-reported negative affect, avoidance, and aggression toward homosexuals) and homosexual aggression. Self-identified heterosexual college men were assigned to homophobic (n = 26) and nonhomophobic (n = 26) groups on the basis of their scores on the Homophobia Scale (HS; L. W. Wright, H. E. Adams, & J. A. Bernat, 1999). Physical aggression was examined by having participants administer shocks to a fictitious opponent during a competitive reaction time (RT) task under the impression that the study was examining the relationship between sexually explicit material and RT. Participants were exposed to a male homosexual erotic videotape, their affective reactions were assessed, and they then competed in the RT task against either a heterosexual or a homosexual opponent. The homophobic group reported significantly more negative affect, anxiety, and anger-hostility after watching the homosexual erotic videotape than did the nonhomophobic group. Additionally, the homophobic group was significantly more aggressive toward the homosexual opponent, but the groups did not differ in aggression toward the heterosexual opponent. Discuss...
I know there is a thread on this, but this is a better subject title. After being fired herself, Erica Hill went around shopping for a new job at the various networks. She found an opening at Weekend Today when Amy Robach left for ABC. But the Saturday shift wasn't enough for her. She wanted Saturday AND Sunday (which was being held by Jenna Wolfe) So Jenna got demoted to newsreader on weekends, and now Erica Hill will be weekend co-host on both Saturday AND Sunday. Sound fair?

I'm going with Henry Cavill or Christian Bale. They are the ones who look and attractive enough for the role. The others look way too young or ugly but I'm not really sure how old the character is supposed to be. Some of them nauseatingly like a Ken doll or Ryan Seacrest (barf).
This is Brooke Shields' memoir of growing up alone with her mother, and it's quite good -- Shields is a smart lady and a very good writer. The madeleine at the start of the book is the NY Times obit of Teri Shields -- Brooke had written it (and paid $1500 to have it run), and the Times added a bunch of stuff about her mother that really upset Brooke in a paid obit. So it's the story of Brooke, who grew up with an alcoholic with some personality disorders -- but Teri also was a lively, fun, stylish person much of the time. She had grown up in Newark and headed for New York, where she remade herself as a sophisticate (thrift shop pieces from the toniest neighborhoods, lots of gay male friends). Teri got pregnant by a society guy whose parents were from Europe (Brooke's dad was 6'7" and GORGEOUS). They split up when Brooke was young, but Brooke bore no ill will toward either of them. She'd spend holidays upstate with her dad's society family and most of the time with her mom in a New York apartment. Some points: - Teri took Brooke out drinking with her starting when Brooke was a baby, so Brooke never had a problem finding her mother when Teri was on a tear: "I grew up in bars." - According to Brooke, there was no big plan to sell her as a sex symbol -- she had just been doing a lot of print modeling and commercials when "Pretty Baby" came along. After that, she and her mother just took projects that sounded interesting or were filming in interesting places; after "Pretty Baby" they did "Tilt" (a flop) because teenage Brooke thought it would be fun to play pinball in a movie, and Teri was fine with that. A few years later, she had no idea what the double entendres in the Calvin Klein commercials meant. - She thinks she got so much work because she was reliable and eager to please on film sets, a product of growing up with an alcoholic. Contrary to popular belief, Teri was not a stage mom -- during filming she kept to herself or went out drinking... despite her sophisticated New York style, Teri preferred dive bars. - On the set of "Pretty Baby," Susan Sarandon ran hot and cold toward her. During the scene when she had to slap Brooke, she insisted to Louis Malle that she only could do it for real, and for take after take she belted Brooke on camera. They got along better on "King of the Gypsies," but Shelley Winters hated Brooke and Eric Roberts was just nuts (drug use implied) -- in a car chase scene, he "improvised" by slamming his car against the sides of the cars in the nearby lanes while going 70 mph with Brooke in the car. - Brooke loved Studio 54 as a teen because she could dance for hours and people would leave her alone. She liked Andy Warhol and claims that the people at 54 kept drugs far away from her. There's a lot more -- and I'm only at the point where Brooke went off to Princeton. Has anyone else read this?

Anderson interviewed Shawn Hornbeck today on his show and prefaced the interview by saying he is not allowed to ask him anything about the kidnapping or what happened. Why? It's been 6 years since he's been found and he's still not ready to talk about it? Something's just not right. He wasn't chained up or held captive. He spent all his time playing video games, watching TV and eating pizza and junk food. He was allowed to roam free outside of the house. He biked and skateboarded in the neighborhood. He had sleepovers at friends' houses. Why did he never run away or ask someone for help? Someone even asked him if he was Shawn Hornbeck and he said no. It's like he didn't want to be found. Something just doesn't add up.

NBC is promoting the he''ll out of this. It could either be a big hit or a humongous flop. It just seems so stupid with the judges sitting in those spinning chairs. And it seems so fake that they have to fight with each other for singers to pick them. The judges will have to cheat, lie and steal to get picked. Oh noes. I think this is going to be a career low for Christina Auguillra and Adam Levine.\ \ Sent from my iPhone

From worst to best. Not so much by their subsequent commercial success, just how good they are. 11. Lee DeWyze. He's cute and can more or less carry a tune, but doesn't seem particularly inspired. Should not have won. Has faded faster than a Bravo reality tv star. 10. Scotty Mcreery. He's ok. Barely distinguishable from the two or three who won before him. 9. Kris Allen. Really not that bad, although I'm not sure I see an appeal outside suburban coffeehouses. One half-decent Kanye West cover will not carry a career. 8. Ruben Studdard. So unbelievably dull, if he'd been around in the 80s he'd have fallen far behind a much better group of soul crooners (Luther, Peabo, James Ingram, etc.). I do have soft spot for him, though, for having sung Superstar. 7. Fantasia. Can't say I ever "got" her. I thought Jennifer Hudson and Diana DeGarmo were both much better. And what a nails-on-the-chalkboard voice! Ugh. But I'll give her points for being unique. 6. Jordin Sparks. Can't say I remember too much about her, but she strikes me as someone who should be cranking out anonymous gay disco anthems (a la Cascada or Deborah Cox) and not trying to rule Billboard. 5. Taylor Hicks. Often and mercilessly mocked, but I think it's more like he's in the wrong genre. He's a genuine blues guy in a way that few white guys can pull off, but he will never be a pop star. 4. Carrie Underwood. Strong pipes, no doubt, although I wish she didn't look exactly like 50 other country blondes. Great singer, I guess. Zero personality. 3. David Cook. Wildly underrated. Love the smoky voice. Definitely one who I hope can at some point achieve the commercial recognition he deserves. 2. Phillip Phillips. Dumb name, hugely talented. That Home song is good but starting to get irritating. 1. Kelly Clarkson. The first Idol and still far and away the best. A truly stunning talent. I would put her up against anyone (Celine, Mariah, Babs, Whitney, etc.) as the greatest pop singer ever.

I live on the third floor of a Victorian in a neighborhood full of three-story Victorians. There's another across my driveway with windows facing my apartment. It's never been a problem - I leave the blinds halfway down so I'm not staring into that apartment, and its tenants usually do the same. A new tenant moved into that apartment last week. Tonight my cat was meowing in the window so I looked out to see what was bothering him. The new tenant was crouched on the narrow ledge outside her window, smoking a cigarette and staring into my living room window. She was out there for hours, a chain-smoking Gargoyle. She didn't even leave when I closed the window and blinds and shot her a dirty look. First of all: CREEPY. Second: the ledge she was perched on is maybe 18" wide and has been hollowed out by pigeons that live there. It's freaking precarious, and if the chick falls, she lands in my driveway. I don't want her to get hurt, and I especially don't want to have to clean it up and worry about the insurance and lawsuit implications. Would it be out of line, or not worth the trouble it might cause, for me to mention it to her landlord, who lives on the second floor? I know he'll disapprove - because of the possible falling death thing, and because it's a non-smoking apartment (so I'm sure she lied to him about her smoking). I expect he'll talk to her and tell her not to perch out there... but I don't know if she's the kind of nutjob I shouldn't piss off. It would be easy for her to vandalize my car or fuck with my house. And she's a fucking Gargoyle! Don't they eat people's faces or something? I welcome any advice DL has for me. TIA.
VATICAN CITY (AP) — To the Catholic Church's "seven deadly sins," Pope Francis has added the "15 ailments of the Curia." Francis issued a blistering indictment of the Vatican bureaucracy Monday, accusing the cardinals, bishops and priests who serve him of using their Vatican careers to grab power and wealth, of living "hypocritical" double lives and forgetting that they're supposed to be joyful men of God. Francis turned the traditional, genteel exchange of Christmas greetings into a public dressing down of the Curia, the central administration of the Holy See which governs the 1.2-billion strong Catholic Church. He made clear that his plans for a radical reform of the structures of church power must be accompanied by an even more radical spiritual reform of the men involved. Ticking off 15 "ailments of the Curia" one by one, Francis urged the prelates sitting stone-faced before him in the marbled Sala Clementina to use the Christmas season to repent and atone and make the church a healthier, holier place in 2015. Vatican watchers said they had never heard such a powerful, violent speech from a pope and suggested that it was informed by the results of a secret investigation ordered up by Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI in the aftermath of the 2012 leaks of his papers. Benedict tasked three trusted cardinals to probe deep into the Vatican's back-stabbing culture to root out what would have prompted a papal butler to steal incriminating documents and leak them to a journalist. Their report is known only to the two popes. Francis had some zingers: How the "terrorism of gossip" can "kill the reputation of our colleagues and brothers in cold blood." How cliques can "enslave their members and become a cancer that threatens the harmony of the body" and eventually kill it off by "friendly fire." How some suffer from "spiritual Alzheimer's," forgetting what drew them to the priesthood in the first place. "The Curia is called on to always improve itself and grow in communion, holiness and knowledge to fulfill its mission," Francis said. "But even it, as any human body, can suffer from ailments, dysfunctions, illnesses." Francis, who is the first Latin American pope and never worked in the Italian-dominated Curia before he was elected, has not shied from complaining about the gossiping, careerism and bureaucratic power intrigues that afflict the Holy See. His 2013 Christmas address cast a spotlight on such sins. But a year into his reform agenda, Francis seemed even more emboldened to make clear to the prelates themselves that superficial displays of change aren't what he is looking for. "This is a speech without historic precedent," church historian Alberto Melloni, a contributor to Italian daily Corriere della Sera, said in a telephone interview. "If the pope uses this tone, it's because he knows it's necessary." Melloni noted that until Francis was elected, the Vatican bureaucracy largely answered to no one, saying "an entire generation of the Curia ran it as if they were pope." St. John Paul II was too busy travelling the world, and later too sick, to pay attention to administrative details, and Benedict left the minutiae of running a government to his deputy, later determined to have been part of the problem. The Rev. Robert Wister, a church historian at Seton Hall University, said Francis was essentially asking the Curia to undergo an examination of conscience, asking them to reflect on how they had sinned before God before going to confession. "Perhaps he believes that only a severe rebuke can help turn things around," he said. The cardinals were not amused. Few smiled as Francis spoke, and at the end they offered only tepid applause to a
Inquiring minds wanna know.
In their early days on television, Chris Hyndman says, he was tormented daily by hate mail. The worst part? Much of it came from the gay community. “The gay community can be pretty cold, and it’s pretty hard on you if people turn on you that you expect to really accept you because you’re a screaming queen,” Hyndman says. “Well, a lot of us are, but when a gay person says you’re a screaming queen, that’s pretty insulting because then you’re, like, Oh my god, you’re a queen to the queens.” “You would take them personally,”Steven Sabados chides. Ignoring the hate came more naturally to him. “It just rolled off my back because I don’t really care. You can’t hurt me. I’m just doing the best I can do, and if you don’t like it, then I don’t care,” he says.
Anyone? Anyone? Any and all info is appreciated. I'd also like to know specifically: Are housing prices there still dropping? Do people actually live there during the summer or do they vacate? Am I justified in being a bit nervous about living ON the San Andreas fault line? What's the overall quality of life there? How are the people? PS seems like such a unique, quiet little city...I think I (or even my retired parents) would enjoy living there. Any insight?
Congratulations. You’ve won. You’ve earned your ticket into Heaven by showing your son God’s love. You’ve shown your son God’s love by not allowing him to bring me to your home for Christmas. You’ve done exactly what Jesus would do – shun others. After all, Jesus didn’t let JUST ANYONE at his table. It’s sad that on a day you celebrate the birth of Christ, you’ll be acting in the complete opposite way that Jesus acted. Alas, you must show your son God’s love and not condone “our behavior.” It worked last Christmas. You manipulated him into coming home and he was treated as if he were a leper. He was called names, harassed, and told he was going to Hell because I was dragging him there myself. He was in mental anguish over your treatment of him. You tore him apart with your words. You degraded your only son. But this Christmas….. He’s over it. He’s over the threats, the lies, and the bullying. Since you don’t recognize him and I as a couple and since you’ve said you won’t treat us like part of the family, he’s decided to choose love over hate this Christmas. He’s choosing to NOT go back to what he once called home. His home is with me and it has been for three years. He’s become an integral part of my family. While you were shunning your son away, he found a family of his own. He found people who love him without conditions. He found a table he was welcome at. During your Christmas celebration when you try to justify your actions, please remember that you gave your son an ultimatum – for him to get rid of the love of his life or to leave your family. I know you blame me for taking your son away, but whether I’m in the picture or not, your son is still gay and you must face this realization. You’ve made it abundantly clear that you think I’m demon-possessed, a bad influence, and a sinner. Your judgment of me has no effect, but your treatment of your son causes my heart to bleed. I’ve had to sit by and watch you throw stones at the person I love most. I’ve watched as you and the rest of his family have disowned him. I’ve thought of every scenario to get you to love your son again. I’ve blamed myself because I felt as if I personally caused him to lose his family. I know this isn’t the case and that your son chose me because he recognized true love. I’m writing this to say that I have your son’s love and that’s all that matters. Your son and I love each other and that love is eternal and unconditional. While you’re feeling comforted knowing that you’ll be rewarded in the next life for “not condoning the gay lifestyle”, I’m consoling your son in THIS LIFE. I’m the shoulder your son cries on today. I’m the person who will hug him tight tomorrow. I’m the one who will apologize on your behalf until the day I die. I’m the one who wants to scream at you and say, “Stop! You’re hurting your son! You’re hurting your only son!” But deep down, I know where your heart lies. Your heart beats to that of a literal interpretation of the Bible. Your heart beats to Fox News. Your heart beats to discrimination and treating other “sinners” the way you think they should be treated – condemned to Hell. Your heart beats with hatred to the things you fear and do not understand. This Christmas, your son and I are surrounding ourselves with people who love and care about us. We understand what true love is. So this Christmas when you think to yourselves, “He’s abandoned his family for the gay lifestyle,” just know that your son didn’t abandon you. He’s been the same person he’s always been. You are the ones who changed. You’ve deemed certain people unworthy to sit at your table. You’ve put conditions on your love for your son and that is the worst Christmas gift of all.

So I signed up for Hulu Plus (we've "cut the cord") and there's a bunch of old stuff on there. I saw that "Cybill" was there, hadn't seen it for 20 years and started watching a few old eps. LOVED it. Christine Baranski is a hoot. Anyone watch this show during its original go-round? And what was the backstage dirt? I've heard Cybill was a huge cunt to Christine.
Now she's tied to the Simpsons forever.
Patty says he bought her a regulation school girl uniform at Marks & Spencers, including Mary Janes and white panties, then told her to walk along the street like she didn't know him. Then he picked her up in his car, bent her over the hood and fucked her in an alley. She saw him again a few years ago and he refused to be in a room with her without her husband present and only talked about the Koran. What a waste - he was hot back in the day. School girl anecdote begins at 5.50.

So, Friday i get invited to los angeles country club. for those of you who are not rich , white, privilege. pull it up, but dont get too excited cause you will never get in. or even be able to view the interior unless you can get a job as a server, anyway, i am always amazed, cause everyone is like 90yrs old, the food is good, and i really get into the history of this place, and how its remained so exclusive. I think the only celebrity who got in was randolph scott and only because of his family. but they denied bob hope and many others.......the place is pretty old guard. anyway, just sharing, cause no one , trust me no one , on this dismal little site would ever experience this place, just saying, so ...trying to do my part to fit in around here and share.......

[italic](I'll just repost this, since the original thread was lively but died a premature death after someone posted to it at the wrong time - btw, if this can't get fixed, can we at least get some kind of warning for it?)[/italic] Thanks mainly to One Direction, older generations have just about wrapped their heads around the fact that teenage girls like to fantasize about their celebrity crushes getting it on with each other - but they still think that someone who is actually openly gay would be rejected as a teen idol. Troye already has a huge teen girl fanbase from YouTube - and they don't just see him as a "gay best friend" figure (like Tyler Oakley), but as a crush object. I expect him to become a household name when his debut album is released next year (he's already being promoted by Time magazine and the Grammys). His success will show people that being openly gay not only doesn't deter girls from squeeing over a celebrity, but can make them squee all the more - especially if he should step out with an equally cute bf (Connor Franta?). Celebrities like 1D who temper their gay-baiting with bearding and "I'm actually straight" twitter rants will suddenly seem like dinosaurs. You heard it here first.
It's important, and the other thread got closed... so present away, men!

I have no where to go for Christmas and my boyfriend was kind enough to invite me to go home with him for the holidays. But the problem is my boyfriend is not out to his family and has told them he's had a girlfriend named Matilda all these years that he's been out in Seattle. He's created this elaborate history and sent them pictures of the happy couple (which is always our Halloween photos. This year we went as Lucy and Ricky. Last year I was Wonder Woman and he was Superman). So my boyfriend's family already kind of know me through pictures, although only as a woman. So what should I do? It's one thing to pull this off in pictures, but an entirely different thing in person. It's only for 2 days so I think I can do it. I just have to go study all the emails for all the details of Matilda's life (emergency room surgeon, graduated top of class while working 4 jobs, Alzheimer's mother, sister killed in plane crash, etc.)

Natalie Portman has blamed the Star Wars prequel trilogy for almost thwarting her acting ambitions. The Hollywood actress, 33, starred as Luke and Leia Skywalker’s ill-fated mother, Queen Padme Amidala, in George Lucas’ commercially successful but critically-panned movies. “Everyone thought I was a horrible actress,” she told New Yorker magazine. “I was in the biggest-grossing movie of the decade and no director wanted to work with me.” Of course, Portman went on to win the best actress Oscar for Black Swan in 2011, after late director Mike Nichols revived her career by taking her on for his 2001 stage production of Chekhov’s The Seagull. “Mike wrote a letter to Anthony Minghella and said ‘Put her in Cold Mountain, I vouch for her’,” she said. “Then Anthony passed me on to Tom Tykwer, who passed me on to the Wachowskis [who cast her in V For Vendetta].” Portman recently played Jane Foster in Marvel’s Thor films and will soon be seen starring alongside Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett in Knight of Cups from The Tree of Life director Terence Malick.

Seven girls aged between 13 and 14 have fallen pregnant after going on a school trip in Bosnia. Furious parents are demanding to know why there was such a lack of teacher supervision when the girls, from the town of Banja Luka, returned from a five-day trip to the capital city. The school had taken 28 girls on the educational outing to Sarajevo to visit museums and other historical sitess, but since returning the girls have now reportedly dropped out of lessons.

I've been so fucking depressed lately. I've come to the realization that pretty much no one at work likes me -- I see fb posts of them all out together, drinks and parties etc that I was not invited to -- and I feel like a total outsider. I don't have any friends. I feel completely isolated. I think I'm a hell of a great guy! I'm smart (Ivy grad degree.) I'm passionate. I'm healthy. Im in good shape. I have a good sense of humor. I'm well read. I'm good looking. (Finding sex is not a problem, never has been.) But: I have the misfortunate to live in a southern town where I just don't belong, and I can't afford to move away. I feel trapped, unliked, unloved, helpless, and frustrated. And I'm sorry for venting and expressing on here, but, as I said, I don't have any friends to vent to. I'm fucked.

Former porn star's lawyers say he is mentally ill and not criminally responsible for dismembering Chinese student A model and former porn star who killed and dismembered a Chinese student in Canada sent the body parts to schools and politicians in packages with pink tissue paper and hand-written notes, a court has heard. Luka Magnotta, 32, has admitted to carrying out the gruesome killing and captured his acts on video camera, but defence lawyers at his murder trial this week said he is not criminally responsible because he is mentally ill. Yesterday the jury was shown grainy footage from four security cameras positioned outside Magnotta’s Montreal apartment, where he killed and butchered 33-year-old Jun Lin on 24 May, 2012. Prosecutors said the videos showed the killer holding the door for his victim to enter on the day he died, and then later leaving the flat with a series of black bags and a large grey suitcase containing Mr Lin’s remains. Throughout this week the court has heard graphic evidence from police and forensic witnesses about the material found in Magnotta’s apartment and in the packages he sent by mail across Canada. Jurors were shown photographs of packages sent to two Vancouver elementary schools and to the offices of political parties in Ottawa. One item was labeled “black garbage bag wrapped around foot”. The items addressed to the schools contained pink tissue paper and notes on pink paper. One included a poem reading: “Roses are red, violets are blue, the police will need dental records to identify you, b****.” The investigator said the boxes that were sent to the political parties included one note that mentioned the name of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper's wife. Prosecutors are trying to prove that Magnotta planned the killing at least six months in advance of Mr Lin’s death. On Monday, the court heard that Magnotta allegedly emailed a British journalist in 2011 detailing his intention to kill someone and film the act. The incident first came to police attention when the caretaker at Magnotta’s flat used pliers to break the lock on the grey suitcase, which was left outside and starting to smell. He called the police when he found remains inside – by which point the killer had fled. The international hunt for Magnotta grabbed headlines around the world in the summer of 2012. He was eventually arrested in an internet cafe in Berlin, where he was reading articles about himself online.

New York City police officers, already at war with recently elected Mayor Bill de Blasio, turned their backs on the mayor as he entered the police press conference to address the shooting deaths of two officers in Brooklyn, PIX 11 reports. Two officers were killed “execution style” as they sat in their squad car in a Bedford–Stuyvesant neighborhood Saturday afternoon. According to Police Commissioner William Bratton, the shooter, identified as Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, took a shooter’s stance on the passenger side of the squad car and opened fire on the two officers with a silver semi-automatic handgun. Invited to attend the press conference to discuss the shooting, Mayor de Blasio was greeted by hallways filled with police officers who turned their backs on the mayor as he and his entourage made their way to the press room. New York police officers have been in conflict with the mayor following the choking death of Eric Garner. After a Staten Island grand jury declined to press charges against police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Garner, de Blasio blamed the death of Garner and the unrest following the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, on “centuries of racism.” “This is now a national moment of grief,” he said. “A national moment of pain. We are dealing with centuries of racism that have brought us to this day.” de Blasio vowed to push forward, reforming the New York City police department and cracking down on officers “who don’t live up to the values of the uniform.” The mayor also called for peaceful, non-violent protests in the wake of the deaths. Angered by de Blasio’s comments, New York City’s police union launched a campaign to keep the mayor away from funerals of any officers who might die in the line of duty. On Twitter, de Blasio was criticized by NYPD’s Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) which tweeted: “The blood of 2 executed police officers is on the hands of Mayor de Blasio. May God bless their families and may they rest in peace.” de Blasio was also criticized by former New York Governor George Pataki, who tweeted: “Sickened by these barbaric acts, which sadly are a predictable outcome of divisive anti-cop rhetoric of #ericholder & #mayordeblasio. #NYPD” See the tweets and video below: George E.

It sure was one gleeful moment when the actor popped the question to his longtime girlfriend last summer, but Matthew Morrison and Renee Puente must be grinning ear to ear after tying the knot. The two were married Saturday evening in an intimate celebration in front of 50 family and friends on a private estate in Kihei on the island of Maui, Hawaii, the actor's rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE. Morrison wore a custom Brooks Brothers tuxedo for the occasion, while the bride wore a one-of-a-kind Gustavo gown with shoes specially designed by Emmy London. Of course a Glee wedding would be incomplete without musical performances. Pianist Chad Whidden played for the crowd and soloist Kiley Dean sang "Feels Like Home" as Puente walked down the aisle. Keep up with your favorite celebs in the pages of PEOPLE Magazine by subscribing now. Later on in the evening, Puente put on a special Hula performance for Morrison, and he then joined her in a couples version. The talented newlyweds ended their performances with a special duet together, singing Laura Benanti's "Starry Eyed/Video Games." Kevin Covey Wedding and Events planned the affair, which featured food by Bev Gannon's Celebrations Catering – including a special dessert station made up of Morrison and Puente's favorite family recipes – and floral and décor by Inviting Occasion. Photography was provided by Natalie Watson Photography and Watson Studios, and the videographer was Perryfield Films. The Glee actor, 35, and the model, 31, have been dating since 2011. "An incredible night of LOVE @ejaf ball," Morrison Tweeted in June of the engagement. "I'm going to marry my best friend! Happy day for me and @Renee_Puente."
Is he gay? He's a cutie. Talented too.
But honestly, I thought he already WAS dead.
Touching or cringeworthy? I could never quite figure out whether I like or hate her quasi-operatic voice.

Wtf? This movie was on the other night. It has iconic status among many movie fans. So I watched it. And I was thinking, "When does it get funny?" Rodney Dangerfield had a few zingers, the Baby Ruth in the pool was cute, but how could anyone think this film was laugh-out-loud funny? Reviews on imdb said they'd watched the film over and over. Why? Was it because there were titties in it and 12 year old het boys got off on it?

Reporter repeatedly collapses into giggles in front of pile of burning narcotics What a gurly giggle he has, too,
Last week, the Food and Drug Administration’s Blood Products Advisory Panel met to discuss lifting the government’s 31-year-old ban on blood donations from men who have sex with men. Currently, any man who has had sexual contact with another man since 1977—even once, even using condoms—is barred for life from donating blood. The ban was instituted in 1983 in the early days of the AIDS crisis, when HIV testing was still rudimentary. It hasn’t been altered since. There was some hope that the panel might support a policy recently endorsed by a nearly unanimous Department of Health and Human Services panel, which would allow gay men to donate blood if they’d been celibate for one year. But even that half-measure appeared to be too much for the panel, which closed its discussion without taking a formal vote. (The panel itself can’t make rules, but the FDA takes its suggestions very seriously when issuing guidelines.) The panel’s refusal to advise replacing the lifetime ban with a one-year deferral—twinned with its craven refusal to go on the record as opposing it—is deeply irritating. Even more galling is its reasoning, or lack thereof: It’s clear that the advisers on the panel saw the campaign to lift the blood ban as more a political crusade than a scientific appeal. (Apparently, they haven’t checked in with American Red Cross, America's Blood Centers, the American Association of Blood Banks, and the American Medical Association, all of which oppose the ban.) “It sounds to me like we're talking about policy and civil rights” rather than safety and science, one adviser scoffed. Another anxiously described lowering the ban as “a leap of faith.” This language is quite curious. The advisers were not considering abolishing the gay blood ban altogether; they were simply considering replacing it with a new ban that forces gay men to be celibate for a year before donating. Their stated opposition to gay blood donation is a fear that HIV-positive men will donate. But every blood donation is tested for HIV, and the virus can now be detected within weeks of infection. If gay men were celibate for a year before their donation, how could they possibly carry an increased risk for HIV? If they were already HIV-negative prior to a year of celibacy, how could they even have HIV at all? Parse this chain of reasoning, and the Blood Products Advisory Panel’s true fear is obvious: It is afraid gay men will lie. The advisers won’t support a one-year deferral because they believe gay men will lie about how long they’ve been celibate in order to donate blood. There’s just no other way to justify opposition to a one-year deferral. The panel’s skepticism might make sense if the FDA took a generally wary approach toward blood donation. But it doesn’t, to an almost comical degree. Under the current policies, a straight person who had sex with a prostitute of the opposite sex can give blood one year later. So can a straight person who had sex with an HIV-positive opposite-sex partner. Straight people who frequently have unprotected sex with multiple anonymous opposite-sex partners face no deferral at all. The FDA doesn’t seem concerned that any of these people will lie about their sexual behaviors. Now, what do all of these lucky folks have in common that might make the FDA trust them? Ah, yes: They’re all straight. Ask a straight man whether he’s had sex with a prostitute in the last 12 months, and you can take his answer as the gospel truth. Ask a gay man if he’s had sex with anyone in the last 12 months—even his husband—and, well, you really just can’t take those people at their word, can you? This treatment is very much in line with the FDA’s general attitude toward gay men, which is that they are diseased, irresponsible, and untrustworthy. Last August, a 16-year-old gay kid who committed suicide was forbidden from donating his eyeballs under FDA guidelines; the organization bars tissue donation from men who had sex with men less than five years before death, and the teen’s mom couldn’t prove he was celibate. When I heard the news of that horrific indignity, I didn’t think the organization could be any more dismissively disdainful of gay men. As it turns out, I was dead wrong.
There are 17 of them (see link below for the photo). Are all the tenors gay? Wonder if they have all gotten together for a group hook-up. That is one way to break the ice. Theatre DLers, see link below and tell us if they are all gay.

I used to do it with 45s, then using my CD player's "repeat" function, and now I do it with iTunes. If I really love a song, I'm perfectly happy to listen to it for an hour or more. Right now it's Lucinda Williams' hymn to New Orleans, Louisiana, "Crescent City." "Tous les temps sont temps." Which songs do you listen to over and over and over and over?
By far the best looking chap I've seen.
Just discovered this series and am a fan. Any other fans out there? Anyway, I was surprised to learn that it's completely wrong in it's portrayal of the characters. The central figure is Ragnar Lothbrok, the first Viking to sail to the West and to England. The series portrays him as this awesome hero. The truth is far different. In reality, Ragnor was captured by the North Umbrian King Aelle and was put to death by being thrown in a pit of snakes. Also, on the show his firstborn son is called Bjorn and is a healthy young boy. In reality, Ragnar's first born was called Ivar the Boneless and he was a cripple and was said to have been born without any bones. Ivar the Boneless grew up to be the hero, not his father. Also, the human sacrifice scenes were wrong as well. In the series they portrayed the human sacrifices as being willing victims. That's just not the case. In some instances the did require that the victim "voluntarily" offer themselves but the person was usually tricked into doing such by being drugged. The slave woman who was killed to accompany her lord in the afterlife was tricked in this manner. After she sobered up and realized what was going to happen to her she then tried her best to decline but was not allowed. She was then kept drugged until it was time for her sacrifice. Also, she did not "have sex" with multiple men before being sacrificed. In reality she was gang raped. She was not killed by a slit throat but was in fact held down and repeatedly stabbed to death. Kind of weird how the show goes nowhere near the reality of what life really was like back then. I was struck by the fact of how good the women and children were treated on the show. In reality the women would have routinely been raped and both women and children would have been routinely beaten.
Kornacki just said today is the final show, if I heard right? Did Cupp outshine them all SO much that she's been promoted, and no use the rest going on without her? J o P
I love dress shoes and dress socks. I have been attracted to them since I child. I always look at what a guy has on his feet first. I am also a celebrity shoe whore. I''m always excited when I see any male celebrity with great shoes on. GQ and Esquire always fill this addiction. Anyone else out there have this fetish for male celebrities and dress shoes?
First Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton have split after thirteen years together. The couple “separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children. We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time,” a rep for the 48-year-old actress said (via People). The couple, who never married, met on the set of his 2001 film Planet of the Apes. They have two children together, Billy, 11, and Nell, 7. Tim, 56, has frequently cast Helena in his movies. She’s had roles in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows.

1. Brussels Sprouts. Other vegetables in this group include: broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and cabbage. 2. Salmon. other oil-rich fish include blue fish, sardines, mussels, herring, trout, or halibut. These are also low mercury fish. 3. Almonds. Walnuts and pistachio nuts are also other options. 4. Yogurt. Rich in calcium, protein, and vitamin D, plain, low-fat (and no fat) yogurt supports strong bones, helps support muscle maintenance, and is a digestive, plus containing probiotics. 5. Quinoa. Other protein/fiber rich options include buckwheat, chick peas, and black beans. 6. Green Tea. Whether from a bag or free tea leaves, skip the sweeteners and you'll get the full benefit of the flavanols which are well-documented for heart and circulatory health. 7. Blueberries. Other berries containing potent antioxidants include: blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries. Fresh or frozen (without added sugars), berries can be eaten alone, in yogurt or salads, or mashed and eaten as a frozen pop. And red and concord grapes fall into this antioxidant family, and contain another health-promoting ingredient called resveratrol. Since red wine is made from grapes, the antioxidants are both in the fresh fruit, and its fermentation product, wine.
Just wondering. I'm a very emotional type of person who reacts to situations easily.

Since the last thread seems to be locked up/inaccessible since last week. More about those towns we were chatting about. Don't misbehave and don't make me snap you with my fuckin' dishtowel!
I love this regal grande dame! Is she as nice and polite as she seems? Please, do tell.
Instead posters PAY $18 to post stuff. And here are other gossip boards saying they will pay us 10 cents a post! That works out to 100 posts for $5.00 a month. And we have to PAY to post, when other boards are offering to pay posters to post? Doesn't seem right. btw I won't mention what board it is, as that would be a no-no at DL. Might cause people to bolt from DL.
i disagree with the choice of Pedro as #1. Yes, he was courageous and noble but he was a bit smug and not particularly entertaining to watch.
So far its coming across as the live action version of Josie and the Pussycats, but Harris is very hot in that 1970s way.
Hi, Bill Greves, Susie Lee's friend who started her on Datalounge after a big surgery she had a couple of years ago.%0D %0D I haven't been on DL for a long time. Apparently the board has undergone some changes and when Susie tried to get back on to post one day, she couldn't find her thread, couldn't bring it up in a search, nothing, so she just gave up.%0D %0D She is currently with her son, his wife, and new granddaughter Elizabeth in Italy (her son works for a company in the U.S. but has to go to Milan occasionally). I spoke with her on New Year's, and she has requested that I post and tell everyone hello, she hopes you had a wonderful holiday season and have a spectacular new year. When she and I are together at some time, we'll try to get her back to posting if any of her posting friends are still around. She wanted to be remembered to everyone.I realize she doesn't know you, but I think she felt like she did. I apologize for not posting sooner but I have been frantic lately. TY for helping her during what was a sedentary and lonely time for her. She would still love to be in touch. I'll try and get her there when she returns. Bill
Why do they hate each other so?
(P.S. I'm starting a feud even if there isn't one)
I''m sitting here reminiscing about awful presents from Christmas'' past.%0D\ %0D\ Although my Mom''s family was kind of "classy", my Dad''s family was consummate white trash, so awful presents were a part of my life from infancy. %0D\ %0D\ Every year, the present I received at my Dad''s family Christmas party was whatever was on sale at The Dollar Store, usually something like a Bingo game, which you played once and then your Mom vacuumed the rest of it up off the carpet after the first time you actually punched the pieces out of the cardboard and played it.%0D\ %0D\ Last year, my Aunt actually bought me a Christmas sweater with penguins on it. It''s still hanging in my closet. I guess I''ll save it for my funeral, because that''s the only time I can imagine wearing it.%0D\ %0D\ My uncle gave my Dad some kind of mounted fish that talks, which has to be the most useless gift ever devised. I get ill thinking about the resources squandered fabricating this crap.
I demand for this holiday season that my child and his/her partner bring the new grandchild to US, in a different city, rather than have me go see them! Because Christmas is ALWAYS at my house! The screaming baby will annoy the shit out of everyone on the plane, and my child and my child's spouse really cannot afford to fly, BUT: ***I*** and my needs are the reason for the season!
I couldn't find a thread. I felt bad for the cutie who got cut early. And the guy who stated that he didn't care what Tom thought - your dish sounded AWFUL.

When it comes to the origin of Christmas the Germanic peoples get the shaft. They are routinely shoved aside in favor of things like "Saturnalia". In reality almost all of our Christmas traditions come from the Germanic peoples and their celebration of Yule, which was the Germanic pagan midwinter festival. The Germanic pagans get a bad rap as a whole. Meanwhile cultures such as the Celts get touted as the be all of the pagan world. Take the British for example. The British are fascinated with all things Celtic when in reality they were conquered by the Germanic Saxons and were assimilated into Germanic paganism. Germanic paganism ruled in Britain until the coming of Christianity. That's why Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are all named after Germanic gods and not Celtic gods. So as you celebrate Christmas this year please stop downplaying the Germanic pagan influence of the holiday. Almost every single Christmas tradition stems from Germanic paganism, from decorating with evergreens, creating a yule log, to caroling and gift giving. The Christmas Tree itself, while not pagan specifically, was created by Germans and does have the "Germanic pagan spirit" to it. Even Santa himself is a German invention and is eerily similar to legends of Wodan (Odin) who flew in the night sky during Yule-Tide, rewarding good and punishing evil. One of Santa's reindeer is named "Donar", one of the forms of the name of Thunor (Thor). If you are European in heritage and are bit tired of Judeo-Christianity then you might consider coming back home to the faith of your people. Asatru (trueness or faithfulness to the gods) is a growing modern revival of Germanic paganism. Being modern you don't even have to worry about animal or human sacrifices. Today the gods are honored with alcohol, prayer and song. Another plus which puts Asatru above other faiths is that members of the faith do not live as slaves to the deities. Members do not kneel, bow, or even close their eyes to the gods. Members are free to forge whatever destiny they so chose for themselves. Asatru is also not anti-science nor is it racist. Members do not have to dress up in costumes, though most men do wear a Thor's hammer necklace. It is the religion of our ancestors. It is also the fastest growing religion in many European countries. The old gods are calling out to their own to come home.
Was this the most undeserved Oscar win ever? I know it was some sort of lifetime award but it still doesn't make much sense since his character literally didn't have even one big scene. I was still a kid when I saw Cocoon for the first time and I had no idea who Don Ameche is but I did read on the DVD cover that he won the best supporting oscar for the film. After I watched the film I was sure that Wilford Brimley was the Oscar winning guy but when I read on the net later that Brimley wasn't Ameche I couldn't even remember who he played in the movie. Thoughts?
Keram knows what *really* went down in that Beyonce / Solange elevator fight -- and it sure as fuck ain't what they claimed in that press release. Keram will put it this way: Solange walked into the wrong room at the wrong time, and that night in the elevator, Queen Bey found out she wasn't the *only* queen inside of it. (Bey's flacks have been devising a divorce strategy ever since. Solange and Jay can no longer be in the same room together unsupervised.) Keram knows that GOOP had to be restrained -- [italic]literally[/italic] -- when she found out her hubby was dating J.Law. (Keram also finds it endlessly amusing that "conscious uncoupling" was used as a euphemism for "famous singer finally dumps crazy-ass bipolar bitch.") Her mommy Blythe is not only used to such rages by now; she had a locked compound built on the grounds of GOOP's Montecito estate over a decade ago to stash her there during flare-ups. When Gwynnie's in one of her "moods," she's kept in its locked-from-the-outside premises with two burly guards on watch 24/7. Her longest compound stay to date clocked in at nearly a month. Keram knows that two very married stars of the next "Avengers" movie -- stars of the same gender, that is -- had a scorching-hot fling during filming. Not only did their respective wives know about it, one of them joined the festivities one evening! One of them is that bisexual actor who recently renounced his earlier claims of being bi; the other is a "heteroflexible" Brit who seems to have a thing for both mommy *and* daddy types. Keram knows that Jake Gyllenhaal's family is *quite* concerned about his recent mood swings. He's been diagnosed with major depressive disorder, but for inexplicable reasons refuses to take his meds. (No, Jake isn't batshit crazy like GOOP, but still.) Keram has heard talk that the impetus for his downward spiral was Henry Cavill's refusal to return his calls. Keram knows a certain Hollywood crowd is partying like it's 1989: at a cocaine speakeasy. Yes, you read that correctly. Entry fee at the door -- accessible to members only, and guarded by a Sig Sauer-toting ex-Marine -- is $1,000, and all "tabs" must be paid in cash. These speakeasies come and go, but this one appears to have staying power thanks in large part to its hiding-in-plain-sight location. Keram knows that Matt McBongo's gone a bit insane in the membrane in his quest to become the Biggest Box Office Star on Earth. Not quite Tammy Cruise insane, mind you -- CO$ isn't involved -- but he's completely given up sex (with men, of course) to maintain the charade of a normal marriage, and he's gone full-tilt Brando before each of his recent roles. Prior to commencing filming on "True Detective," he moved to the deserts of Moab (for two months!!) to become "one with the land." (His PA choppered in weekly with fresh water and food supplies.) Keram knows that the Bryan Singer lawsuit is effectively over, but Hollywood twinks are attempting all manner of clever devices -- both figurative and literal -- to ensnare Hollywood bigwigs. One of them -- who shall remain nameless, if only because Keram doesn't want the Velvet Mafia hunting his ass down -- hasn't been in anything big yet but has been mentioned on DL a few times. He's over 18; however, his newly out-of-the-closet brother (who isn't an actor) is only 16. Older bro invited younger bro to one of those infamous pool parties at the record mogul's place, and when a certain producer invited him "upstairs," older bro had already set up two high-def "nanny cams" to record the festivities. Make no mistake: younger bro wasn't forced into anything, and he already has a separate sugar daddy supplying him with all the things a growing boy needs (a private flat on Wilshire; a fake ID good enough to fool a CHP officer; and the clicker for Daddy's Ferrari-filled garage), but 16's still 16. Now older bro's just waiting for the right time to use it...

He is so incredibly sexy, and she is so old. I think she's even had cancer. And now she's burdened him with two kids. She's ruined him. What's the appeal?
Are both of them gay? Their younger brother practically set my tv on fire.
FDA Plans to Ease Ban on Blood Donations by Gay and Bisexual Men The Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday that it plans to allow gay and bisexual men to donate blood, but only if they have abstained from gay sex for a year. The decision would end a lifetime ban that was put in place in 1983, during the early days of the AIDS crisis. Medical groups have said that advances in HIV testing make such a ban unnecessary, and gay rights organizations have said it perpetuates stereotypes. The new policy would put the United States in line with Britain, Australia and Japan. The FDA said it had "carefully examined and considered the available scientific evidence," including several recently completed studies. One gay rights organization, Gay Men's Health Crisis, immediately denounced the new policy as "offensive and harmful." "By implementing this policy, the FDA will continue to fan the flames of the outdated stereotype that HIV is only a 'gay disease,'" the organization said. It pointed out that the policy does not require a year of celibacy from straight donors. The FDA's questionnaire for blood donors asks men whether they have had sex with a man since 1977. In November, a panel of blood safety experts convened by the Department of Health and Human Services voted overwhelmingly in favor of doing away with the lifetime ban and moving to a one-year celibacy rule. ##

Could life imitate art yet again, or -- more specifically -- could a title come true? Deadline Hollywood reports HBO is in talks with Lisa Kudrow and director Michael Patrick King to bring "The Comeback" back, the duo's comedy from 2005 that's become a cult classic. Though it only lasted one, 13-episode season, "The Comeback" earned respect from most critics and has developed quite the following since it went off the air. Recent successful resurrections have given new life to many TV shows with rumors constantly swirling of comebacks, "Arrested Develpment" being the most notable example. This makes the news of the Kudrow comedy's possible return even more apt. "The Comeback" was very much ahead of its time, being a single camera reality show spoof. Relevancy shouldn't be an issue, even almost a decade after its original airing. Valerie Cherish still has plenty to teach us. On March 19, Kudrow retweeted a Slate story suggesting "The Comeback" deserves another season. It even went so far as to suggest HBO should make it available on the company's streaming service, HBOgo.
Carter's rep confirmed, telling the magazine that the couple "separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children."
I really love and adore Cotrubas and have always held in her in as high esteem as Callas, Sutherland, Caballe, Freni, de los Angeles and others I listen to frequently. Some of her recordings are simply flawless, especially L'Elisir d'Amore; her Violetta is also perfection. You always hear everyone going on about the other divas and I feel that she deserves her place up there with the rest. Anyone else with me?

SAYBROOK TOWNSHIP — Soap opera star Freddie Smith was legally drunk and possibly speeding in the Oct. 7 car crash that seriously injured his girlfriend, actress Alyssa Tabit, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Smith’s blood alcohol test result was .093, according to OHP. The legal limit in Ohio is .08. Tabit, 27, of North Hollywood, Calif., is recovering from her injuries. Smith, 26, of Los Angeles, Calif., drove off Route 84 in Kingsville Township when he lost control of the Mazda 6 he was driving on a curve in the road, just east of Dibble Road, according to the OHP report. Police have said they suspected speed and alcohol were factors in the crash. As of Monday night, the crash is still under investigation and charges are pending, according to the OHP report. Troopers received the results from Smith’s blood alcohol test on Monday. Smith plays the part of Sonny Kiriakis on the daytime soap opera, “Days of Our Lives.” According to OHP, Smith’s car crossed the center line at about 12:40 a.m. Oct. 7, traveled to the left side of the road and hit a culvert, causing the vehicle to flip end over end. When the vehicle came to rest, Tabit was temporarily trapped inside. She was flown by medical helicopter to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. Smith received minor injuries. The couple was in town visiting Smith’s family. He grew up in Ashtabula County. According to his fan page, Smith is back on the set in Los Angeles.
...but only if you don't have sex for a year. "Some may believe this is a step forward, but in reality, requiring celibacy for a year is a de facto lifetime ban," the organization Gay Men's Health Crisis, a New York-based nonprofit that supports AIDS prevention and care, said after the announcement.

Let's carry on our foolishness in a single thread. To recap: When Welsh actor Luke Evans started out on the West End in Boy George's musical Taboo, he was openly gay, telling The Advocate "I'm going to have to be open. It's who I am. And if people don't like it, then I don't want their jobs." and "If that means I'm going to be a poor man at 60, then at least I've lived a happy, open, gay life and not had to hide it from anybody." More bluntly, he told an English gay rag that what he liked most about gay porn stars were "big cocks." Despite appearing in high profile musicals such as Les Miserables and Avenue Q, major stardom eluded him, so he took the plunge into film. Reneging on his earlier statements, he tried to present himself as straight, even attempting to beard with his friend Holly Goodchild. But the internet remembers and this created a furor in on many gay blogs and here at DL, where his earlier interviews were dug up. At the time, however, the mainstream press ignored it. Luke compounded the situation by going on Cam4 to put on a little sex show; miraculously, only the "PG" stuff from the show has survived. Meanwhile, Luke carved out a moderately successful career in action films, appearing in Immortals with Henry Cavill, The Hobbit with Lee Pace and Richard Armitage and The Fast and Furious 7 with Vin Diesel. Ian McKellan, another co-star from The Hobbit, dropped the ball a bit when he named Evans as one of several openly gay actors from the films; and Luke moved from bearding to living in a somewhat blurry glass closet, saying how he wants to keep his private life private. In the summer of 2014, he was romantically linked with Spanish model/actor Jon Kortajarena, a situation that was even covered in the mainstream press. Doing interviews in the fall of 2014, Luke acknowledged the earlier interviews while his PR people stated "It's not something he's hiding...." which led Time magazine to declare him now openly gay and our first gay action hero. His latest film, Dracula Untold, his major solo starring role, was predicted to be a flop; yet, despite dreadful reviews, the movie opened to big bucks, with a $25 million take in the U.S. and even more internationally; Evans is currently the 7th most searched actor on IMDb.

Anyone else think the hype about tourism in Cuba is completely overblown? Sure, there will a wave of adventure tourism as people go once just because they can, and the cruise ships will go to Havana for a day so Americans can wander Old Town Havana and buy XXXL t-shirts, but do you really think a great boom is coming? Cuba's big draws were gambling and other vices, all of which are now readily available 1000 other places, and Cuba's location 90 miles from the USA, a fact that was much more important in the 1950's before cheap jet airfares changed the tourism map. The last time Cuba was hot so were Acapulco, resorts in the Catskills, and honeymoons at Niagara Falls. I mean, when was the last time you SoCal folks took a little vacation on Catalina Island? I think that once the novelty wears off Cuba will be middle of the pack at best as far as tourism destinations go.
with very wealthy people, crazy, wonderful, passionate people.. a lot of texas ranchers and a particularly stodgy grand dame with multiple personalities and a wonderful diction.. The Four Seasons, The Palace...? It was a wonderful place. And I had never experienced a world that could go from one extreme to another as this place did. I wlll say that I was NEVER bored. And I will never experience a place like this again. I sure do miss it. I miss the people. I miss it's passion and I miss its humor and pathos. It was quite a life.
She's taking beating for this, but I don't think it's bad at all. She has a problem hitting some of the high notes, but it still sounds great to me. She's also performing outdoors. I don't know. Do you think it's so bad that it deserves so much attention? Her outfit, YES!
Good. Bad. New. Old. Doesn't matter. Tell us what it was & share your thoughts about it if you can. I just watched an excellent old "B" Movie called 'Diary Of A Bachelor' this morning. Starring someone named Joe Silver. It was one of those early-60's "Swingin' Sex Comedies", but the writing & direction were more clever than most films of it's ilk. Didn't expect it to be as good as it was. The location filming was great too. I got a real feel of what early-60's NYC must have been like. Immediately before that I watched Bette Davis in Dead Ringer from 1964. One of 2 films in which she played twins. I found it much more enjoyable than the first, 'A Stolen Life'.

Because the first thread was full. I find the new Verizon commercial loathsome. A mother and daughter are lamenting that the daughter is moving out. They are crying so much (and so dreadfully artificially) that there are subtitles. How do advertisers not understand such a commercial is so repulsive?
All these "Kill Cops" people claim were being said at rallies- I was doubting most stories to begin with. This doesn't make me think any differently.
Clever video distraction.

Is there a common theme here? (NSFW)
It might be the worst film adaptation of a pretty good Broadway musical ever. I understand that John Huston hated the song "Tomorrow" and would only allow it sung over the credits. But why did he and the producers take so many of the show's other good songs (like "NYC" and the title song) out and replace them with such shit like "We Got Annie" and "Let's Go to the Movies" and "Dumb Dog"? Why did they film the Warbucks mansion in what looked to be a giant mausoleum? Why were the choreographed numbers so chaotic and filmed with so many zillions of children? In case you've forgotten the horror, here's "We Got Annie."
To tell them all their gifts were stolen from under the tree. I never believe them.

If all goes according to plan, I’ll turn 44 soon after this column appears. So far in my adult life, I’ve never managed to grasp a decade’s main point until long after it was over. It turns out that I wasn’t supposed to spend my 20s frantically looking for a husband; I should have been building my career and enjoying my last gasp of freedom. I then spent my 30s ruminating on grievances accumulated in my 20s. This time around, I’d like to save time by figuring out the decade while I’m still in it. Entering middle age in Paris — the world’s epicenter of existentialism — isn’t terribly helpful. With their signature blend of subtlety and pessimism, the French carve up midlife into the “crisis of the 40s,” the “crisis of the 50s” and the “noonday demon” (described by one French writer as “when a man in his 50s falls in love with the babysitter”). The modern 40s are so busy it’s hard to assess them. Researchers describe the new “rush hour of life,” when career and child-rearing peaks collide. Today’s 40ish professionals are the DITT generation: double income, toddler twins. The existing literature treats the 40s as transitional. Victor Hugo supposedly called 40 “the old age of youth.” In Paris, it’s when waiters start calling you “Madame” without an ironic wink. The conventional wisdom is that you’re still reasonably young, but that everything is declining: health, fertility, the certainty that you will one day read “Hamlet” and know how to cook leeks. Among my peers there’s a now-or-never mood: We still have time for a second act, but we’d better get moving on it. I think the biggest transition of the 40s is realizing that we’ve actually, improbably, managed to learn and grow a bit. In another 10 years, our 40-something revelations will no doubt seem naïve (“Ants can see molecules!” a man told me in college). But for now, to cement our small gains, here are some things we know today that we didn’t know a decade ago: If you worry less about what people think of you, you can pick up an astonishing amount of information about them. You no longer leave conversations wondering what just happened. Other people’s minds and motives are finally revealed. People are constantly trying to shape how you view them. In certain extreme cases, they seem to be transmitting a personal motto, such as “I have a relaxed parenting style!”; “I earn in the low six figures!”; “I’m authentic and don’t try to project an image!” Eight hours of continuous, unmedicated sleep is one of life’s great pleasures. Actually, scratch “unmedicated.” There are no grown-ups. We suspect this when we are younger, but can confirm it only once we are the ones writing books and attending parent-teacher conferences. Everyone is winging it, some just do it more confidently. There are no soul mates. Not in the traditional sense, at least. In my 20s someone told me that each person has not one but 30 soul mates walking the earth. (“Yes,” said a colleague, when I informed him of this, “and I’m trying to sleep with all of them.”) In fact, “soul mate” isn’t a pre-existing condition. It’s an earned title. They’re made over time. You will miss out on some near soul mates. This goes for friendships, too. There will be unforgettable people with whom you have shared an excellent evening or a few days. Now they live in Hong Kong, and you will never see them again. That’s just how life is. Emotional scenes are tiring and pointless. At a wedding many years ago, an older British gentleman who found me sulking in a corner helpfully explained that I was having a G.E.S. — a Ghastly Emotional Scene. In your 40s, these no longer seem necessary. For starters, you’re not invited to weddings anymore. And you and your partner know your ritual arguments so well, you can have them in a tenth of the time.
Love the free porn. You have to sift through lots of crap out there, but there are some good ones with hot guys. Post your favorites. Here's one:
What are the Mommies in your area like? Where I live, the all wear black yoga pants, calf hugging riding boots, military style tunics, an artisanal, hand loomed scarf artfully arranged around the neck, $700.00 highlights, and drive enormous SUVs. Seriously, the church ladies who shop exclusively at Coldwater Creek show more variation in their dress. The Mommies are like a 1930s musical comedy chorus where everyone had the same costume but in different shade of a very limited palette.
It looks like the other thread is closed so I thought I would start up another on. I think this place can be hot sometimes (especially at lunchtime). They have a downstairs area that you can do whatever you want and I have been there and had fun with some super hot dudes. Looking to know if there are any other times when this place (xpressions on 53rd) is crowded - weekends? late night?

Well, this should prove to be an entertaining clusterfuck! (via TheWrap): -------------------- The show follows married Utah Mormon men who are attracted to the same sex despite being married to women. TLC will air a special in January called “My Husband’s Not Gay” that follows four men living in Salt Lake City, Utah, who don’t identify themselves as homosexual despite having an attraction to men. The show focuses on three married couples: Jeff and Tanya, Pret and Megan, and Curtis and Tera. Joining the cast is 35-year-old Tom, the bachelor of the group who enjoys fishing and baseball andserved as a missionary in Long Beach. All cast members are devout Mormons belonging to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The special will follow the cast as they navigate life while explaining to outsiders their unique marriages. “I get a little defensive when somebody calls my husband gay,” one wife says in the debut trailer. The special is produced by Hot Snakes Media. TLC also airs another Utah-based show, “Sister Wives,” following Kody Brown who’s in a polygamous marriage with four women.

A full 65 percent of American adults believe in the four of primary elements of the Christmas story -- the virgin birth, an angel announcing the birth of Jesus to shepherds, the magi following a star to bring gifts to Jesus and that the baby Jesus was laid in a manger -- according to a recent survey by Pew Research. Woah, look at these percentages. Do you believe in magic?
I'm one of the gays that also love watching straight pron because of the guys. Seeing the other thread about straight pron stars, I thought I'd start one with the link to who is considered the hottest by this particular website. I would add James Dean and Seth Gamble to the list. Some of the ones listed have also done gay pron . . . for instance the ever-hot Wolf Hudson. Pics from the thread are not naked but may not be safe for work either. Enjoy!
That is all. Thank you.

I found a fabulous app that let's you stream old radio shows, mostly from the '30s through the '50s. It is so fun. My favorites are Mama Bloom's Brood, Gangbusters, and Journey Into Space (I think the last one is from the 1960s). Any old time radio fans here? What are your favorites?

No one has ever shown hard at a urinal for you. No one has ever come onto you in the steam room. No one has ever stood outside the gym and tried to take you home so they could suck your dick. No one has ever come onto you at work. No one has ever cruised you on the street or subway and made sexual suggestions. You scream fiction and Elaborate silly tales when this happens to others. Instead we should be pitying you for bing so fucking disgusting nothing ever happens to you.

EXCLUSIVE: As it begins to dawn on everyone in Hollywood the reality that Sony Pictures was the victim of a cyberterrorist act perpetrated by a hostile foreign nation on American soil, questions will be asked about how and why it happened, ending with Sony cancelling the theatrical release of the satirical comedy The Interview because of its depiction of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. One of those issues will be this: Why didn’t anybody speak out while Sony Pictures chiefs Amy Pascal and Michael Lynton were embarrassed by emails served up by the media, bolstering the credibility of hackers for when they attached as a cover letter to Lynton’s emails a threat to blow up theaters if The Interview was released? George Clooney has the answer. The most powerful people in Hollywood were so fearful to place themselves in the cross hairs of hackers that they all refused to sign a simple petition of support that Clooney and his agent, CAA’s Bryan Lourd, circulated to the top people in film, TV, records and other areas. Not a single person would sign. Here, Clooney discusses the petition and how it is just part of many frightening ramifications that we are all just coming to grips with.

Dataloungers will love this article, because Dataloungers think no one should get any kind of tattoo anywhere ever. ********** (CNN) -- A few years ago I interviewed a handyman to do some work on my house. I noticed a teardrop tattoo at the top of his left cheek. Prior to hiring him, I searched online for what this design signified. My mouth dropped when I found out. A teardrop tattoo can mean he murdered someone. So I hired someone else. Plastic surgeons and dermatologists are seeing more and more people who want their tattoos removed, often because they worry that the tattoos could cause problems with employment. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of people undergoing laser tattoo removal increased 43% from 2011 to 2012. This is consistent with a recent survey from the United Kingdom which found that nearly one-third of people suffer from tattoo regret. Several years ago, elaborate designs on the lower back became all the tattoo rage, until someone began calling them "tramp stamps." Now I suspect that thousands of women (and maybe even a few unfortunate men) regret getting them. Other tattoo fads which have come and gone include the barbed wire around men's arms and the Chinese letters which may, or may not, mean what you think they do. And it's not just the common folk who regret their tattoos. Several celebrities have taken steps to have their tattoos removed. Johnny Depp committed the most common tattoo faux pas: he inked then-girlfriend Winona Ryder's name on his shoulder. A short time later they broke up, prompting Depp to morph "Winona Forever" into "Wino Forever." Megan Fox recently underwent laser treatments to remove the massive Marilyn Monroe tattoo on her arm. And some celebs have even embarrassingly enhanced their bodies with typos. Actress Hayden Panettiere had the Italian phrase "Vivere senza rimpianti" ("living without regret") inked on her side, but "rimpianti" was misspelled. Tattoos can also cause significant medical problems. A 2012 article in the New England Journal of Medicine described contaminated ink causing infections of nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM). These infections are extremely difficult to treat. If weeks of antibiotics don't eradicate the problem, then the tattoo must be removed. Reports of allergic reactions or other, less serious skin infections are also described in the medical literature. Laser treatments are currently the most common and effective method for removing tattoos. Each laser targets a specific color in the ink, so the simpler the tattoo, the easier it's eradicated. Most tattoos require at least three to four treatments, spaced eight weeks apart, to remove. Costs can range from several hundred to several thousand dollars, depending on the size and location of the tattoo. Because laser tattoo removal uses heat to destroy the dyes, there's no guarantee that it won't leave behind scarring, discoloration, or an outline of the previous design. The treatments can also be quite painful, akin to someone snapping a rubber band at your skin. So if you're considering permanent ink, take the necessary steps to reduce your risk of tattoo regret. Make sure your tattoo salon is licensed and clean. The needles and ink should be sterile and used only on you. Any dilution of the inks should be done with sterile liquids. And make sure that you truly want this design on your body for the rest of your life. Ask yourself: Do you really want a permanent reminder of what may be a temporary feeling? Don't make the mistake that one of my patients did. She had a tattoo placed on her lower abdomen when she was single and in her 20s. Thirty years later, she was a grandmother who desperately wanted it removed. So I asked her, "Just how bad is it?" Very bad. She pulled down the waist of her pants to reveal the following words, in large lettering: "Dinner is served."
Car crash victim Rory Curtis, 25, says the accident he was involved in changed his outlook on life, after he realised he wasn't a Hollywood actor A barber has told how he woke up from a coma following a car crash speaking fluent French and thinking he was Matthew McConaughey. Rory Curtis, 25, suffered horrific injuries after the vehicle he was driving hit a lorry before six cars ploughed into the side him during torrential rain on the M42. Firefighters battled to free him from the wreckage for 40 minutes at the scene in Tamworth, Staffordshire, before he was then airlifted hospital. Doctors found he had suffered a multifocal intracranial brain haemorrhage, which meant his blood vessels had burst and blood was leaking into his brain. The promising semi-pro footballer remained in a coma at Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital for six days while medics battled round the clock to save his life. When he finally came round Mr Curtis started speaking to nurses in fluent French - despite not studying the language since school. In his head he had also convinced himself he was Hollywood A-list actor Matthew McConaughey. Mr Curtis, from Redditch, Worcestershire, said: "It's quite bizarre to say the least. "I didn't even do French at GCSE so haven't studied it since Year 9 - then all of a sudden I'm fluent in it. "I can't explain how it happened. It's incredible really. "I don't remember coming round but my family said one of the nurses was from Africa and spoke French and I was having conversations with her. "I was just casually chatting away about how I was feeling in this perfect French accent. "My mum and dad were stunned when they got to hospital and the nurse asked them what side of the family was French. "And then I was sitting there spouting a foreign language from my hospital bed acting all French in their sort of arrogant yet sophisticated way. It wasn't me at all. "I wasn't really that good at it at school, so I don't how my brain has managed to do what is has. I don't know how I know it - I just do. "Also, in my head I thought I was Matthew McConaughey. "When I went to the toilet I went to look in the mirror and I was shocked because I didn't look like him, I didn't know what I was looking at. "Then slowly over time it eventually clicked and I thought "he is an actor, what am I on about? "But at times I was in hospital thinking I can't wait to get out of here and back to filming movies. "I was convinced I was him and that I had his good looks as well - I know it was hopeful thinking really." Mr Curtis was treated with an experimental drug after his family were approached by the National Institute for Health Research Surgical Reconstruction and Microbiology Research Centre. He became only the second person in Britain to have the treatment - which drew upon the Ministry of Defence's expertise with injured soldiers. He made a recovery and was allowed home just two months after the accident in August 2012 but faced months of rehab. Now he has now retrained as a barber and is learning to teach hairdressing himself while he works at his aunt's salon in Birmingham. Mr Curtis, who had trials with Manchester United at the age of 14, said he is convinced his recovery is down to the experimental drug. He added: "I feel it made a difference to me. "Because I don't remember the crash, it doesn't feel like I've had a brain injury. Apart from obviously being able to now speak French. "The accident changed my outlook on life. I can't leave the house now without telling everyone I love them and giving them a hug. "I know with a click of your fingers, it could all be over, because life is fragile. There's no point in wasting any time." His mother Vera, 57, said: "He is so lucky to be alive. When I saw him, I felt the most despair at not being able to help him. "He didn't look like my Rory. He was always so fit and now he looked like a little old man. His hip was smashed to pieces. The bone had crumbled away. "It was a real roller-coaster. We thought we would lose him. "Then all of a sudden he wakes up and he's speaking French. "This nurse was from Africa and spoke French - she asked us what side of the family was from France, as his accent was so good. "Well I told her none of us. She not believe it. The brain really is an incredible thing, nobody has quite been able to explain why it has happened."
Not only because of their looks or persona but also because of their genuine political skills and/or what they can bring to the locality, state, nation and/or world.
There is this little girl who was sitting behind me at the movie theatre today. After three hard kicks at my seat back, I turned around to tell her to stop. Then after a long while, she starts kicking once in a while again, this time softly. I did nothing because it took courage for me to ask her to stop the first time and then I thought, kids will be kids and didn't have guts to tell her to stop the second time. I find myself getting upset over this and then getting upset that I got upset over this. But was this the correct way to respond, should I have turned around the second time to tell her to stop kicking or asked her parents to tell her to tell their daughter to stop kicking or moved to the vacant seat beside me? What would you have done in this scenario? Realistically speaking.
Well, he just WOULDN'T have. What else would Buck NEVER have done?
Have we discussed her on DL before? Is she supposed to be a huge cunt like Dionne?

It's that time of year to celebrate the Datalounge un-favorite. I'm the pink high heels, symbolizing my owner's uptight, broken, but secretly sensual character. Hell yeah I'm pissed that the little girl cracked my heel off.
Every day it's the same. I eat my dinner in my bathtub then I go to sex clubs watching freaky people gettin' it on. It doesn't make me nervous. If anything I'm restless. Yeah, I've been around and I've seen it all. I get home, I got the munchies. Binge on all my Twinkies. Throw up in the tub then I go to sleep. And I drank up all my money, dazed and kinda lonely. My will is gone and I gotta stay high all the time to keep my life off my mind. Spend my days locked in a haze trying to forget my life. I fall back down, gotta stay high all my life to forget what I'm missing. I pick up daddies at the playground. That's how I spend my day time. Loosen up their frown, make them feel alive. Oh, make it fast and greasy. I'm numb and way too easy. Staying in my play pretend where the fun ain't got no end. Can't go home alone again, need someone to numb the pain. Please help me break the cycle.
The sad thing about life is that one usually dies before so many confounding mysteries are solved. These mysteries keep me going! I'm thinking I'll probably be dead before the world knows who killed JonBenét Ramsey, and that's infuriating because I really want to know who did. So if you're reading this and I'm dead and the mystery has been solved, please text 1-800-TEL-LEAH (secret PIN: Hell). If any mystery could be solved before you die, what would it be? Here are some ideas from me and the Gawker staff to get your mystery thoughts flowing. *What happened to Madeleine McCann? *Where is MH370? *Who is/was DB Cooper? *Did Amelia Earhart "go missing" to get away from her husband? *What happened with Matt Taibbi and First Look Media? *What if OJ "did it"? *Who killed Elliott Smith? *Who birthed Blue Ivy Carter?
If so, who and why?
It feels like a hand has reached across time to shove that part of you that didn't know if you could or should, and tell him, her that he, she doesn't exist.

I've read a lot about a severe winter starting in late 2013 and escalating in January 2014. What are your 2014 predictions or interesting ones you've heard.
Of course it's in the 60's at 11:12 pm. It was quite warm to day, about 80F and that's why we have this soupy fog tonight. Luckily, we have snow just 80 miles away if we have to have a white Chrishitmas. How cold or warm is it in your area?
The infamous 1996 cult classic, The Craft, may be headed for a remake if movie survey takers are an indication. A Dread Central reader submitted that she took part in a recent panel survey concerning movies and was asked several questions on whether or not she would be interested in seeing a remake of The Craft. Questions are asked for a reason. A direct to video sequel of The Craft was planned several years ago but was eventually scrapped. Let's hope this comes to fruition.
Big. Big. Huge.
Some people say 12 or 13. For me, it was about age 9. (I know..that probably explains a lot about me.) I found it felt really good to lay face down with a pillow at my crotch. I was really surprised when "it" happened, and my eyes rolled back in my head. I thought it was something only I knew about!

DL, Is anyone familiar with this media source, and their accuracy?
Not trolling, and I'm not here to judge anyone. I'm curious if anyone here has either tried it, was approached to try it, or knows someone who is into it. I haven't crossed paths with anyone who is involved with that kink. To me, the stink alone would be a boner killer.
I had unprotected sex with someone I met in a bar overseas because I was too drunk (possibly drugged?) to resist. Before that night I had not had unprotected anal sex, ever. In fact, as a middle-aged overweight guy with mostly a straight circle of friends, I had not had sex with anyone, man, woman, anyone in years. I these three fun people in a straight bar. I had no inkling one of them was gay. We were buying each other strong cocktails, swearing we were going to go visit one another around the world, and having a blast. The next thing I knew, it was hours later, I was in a bed and someone was sticking their dick in my ass. He was slapping my face to get me awake enough to ask the question: "What's your status? What's your HIV status?" I was powerless (either extremely drunk or in a drugged state) and all I could manage to weakly say was "NEG." I couldn't manage to say no or to move away. That's a fairly amazing level of weakness, not to be able to say words well. He did his thing (which I did not enjoy) and we fell asleep. The next morning he cheerily informed me he was "freshly tested" that there was no problem. My clothes were covered with dirt and blood. He said that I had gotten mightily drunk and that he and his friends had put me to bed. I was quite dismayed and decided I was not going to take that chance. Through a great deal of effort and stress I found a place that would give me 28 days of PEP drug prophylaxis. (I also got tested that day and as of that moment tested negative.) I am very afraid to get tested again. I certainly hope he was telling the truth about being negative. And if they were needed, I certainly hope the PEP worked. I've lost a good deal of weight this year. But I also cut out carbs and started walking two miles a day, so I've made a pretty massive lifestyle change. I can't tell if the weight loss is due to my success or to something else. I still have his phone number. I told him I was getting PEP at the time and he said something to the effect that, if it gives you comfort, great. I wish I knew whether he had gotten tested again. The guy was younger and more attractive than myself, so I can imagine having come on to him, but I didn't want this outcome. I pray forgiveness for my mistakes and humbly ask the Lord God to protect me from them.
So the same exact situation happens yet again? The family forgets Kevin yet again? He coincidently meets up with the burglars yet again in ANOTHER STATE?! Kevin again finds himself in a life and death situation? How many 10 year-olds find themselves in life and death situations every single year? He again sets up traps for them and they again fall for it?? I mean, come on now. There really can't be this many coincidences. This kind of implausibility took my enjoyment out of the whole movie. Do they take us for idiots?? And then Home Alone 3, it happens yet again??? Come on! And don't even get me started on Home Alone 4.
they are nominated for Academy Awards? Nobody has seen them yet. I dont get it.
Did anyone get it ? Recommend it ? Can I get rid of my cable if I use this ? I really don't watch any TV ..... I have a Prime membership, so I figure I can watch enough from the other options available.
This sounds promising. [quote]How does a movie about the “filthiest people alive” become family-friendly? Viewers will soon find out with John Waters’s “Kiddie Flamingos,” a video art piece based on Mr. Waters’s notorious 1972 film, “Pink Flamingos.” The 74-minute video will play on a loop at his coming art exhibition, “Beverly Hills John,” at Marianne Boesky Gallery in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.

Ooooooh, I bet you could have cut the tension in the room with a knife!
The woman dated Liberace, Tyrone Power and Van Johnson, plus a couple of her figure skating partners. Though she was married three times she never had any kids so Sonja herself might have been a big old lesbo herself. And was she really a nazi sympathizer?
She was one of the best character actress ever! RIP
Good God, what a piece of shit. And that cunt couldn't act if she was on fire.
"My generation of boys is f**ked," says Rupert, a young German video game enthusiast I've been getting to know over the past few months. "Marriage is dead. Divorce means you're screwed for life. Women have given up on monogamy, which makes them uninteresting to us for any serious relationship or raising a family. That's just the way it is. Even if we take the risk, chances are the kids won't be ours. In France, we even have to pay for the kids a wife has through adulterous affairs. "In school, boys are screwed over time and again. Schools are engineered for women. In the US, they force-feed boys Ritalin like Skittles to shut them up. And while girls are favoured to fulfil quotas, men are slipping into distant second place. "Nobody in my generation believes they're going to get a meaningful retirement. We have a third or a quarter of the wealth previous generations had, and everyone's fleeing to higher education to stave off unemployment and poverty because there are no jobs. "All that wouldn't be so bad if we could at least dull the pain with girls. But we're treated like paedophiles and potential rapists just for showing interest. My generation are the beautiful ones," he sighs, referring to a 1960s experiment on mice that supposedly predicted a grim future for the human race. After overpopulation ran out of control, the female mice in John Calhoun's "mouse universe" experiment stopped breeding, and the male mice withdrew from the company of others entirely, eating, sleeping, feeding and grooming themselves but doing little else. They had shiny coats, but empty lives. Social commentators, journalists, academics, scientists and young men themselves have all spotted the trend: among men of about 15 to 30 years old, ever-increasing numbers are checking out of society altogether, giving up on women, sex and relationships and retreating into pornography, sexual fetishes, chemical addictions, video games and, in some cases, boorish lad culture, all of which insulate them from a hostile, debilitating social environment created, some argue, by the modern feminist movement. You can hardly blame them. Cruelly derided as man-children and crybabies for objecting to absurdly unfair conditions in college, bars, clubs and beyond, men are damned if they do and damned if they don't: ridiculed as basement-dwellers for avoiding aggressive, demanding women with unrealistic expectations, or called rapists and misogynists merely for expressing sexual interest.
Sorry, I just needed to vent.
I wish he would win an Oscar. He's never even been nominated, which is completely insane.
If his face was covered on this photo I'd probably think that was a woman's body-just look at those tits and child bearing hips. Was he like Matt Damon of the 1950's? But he was a cute twink.
Doing a stint on Days in a Wilson story line....
This was in 2006. Remember the outrage that ensued? No? That's because at the time, nobody had decided yet that "tranny" was a slur word of n-word-like proportions. The outrage over it is a purely manufactured phenomenon.
"A little more to the left, dude."
So I see quite a few porn videos ( I know slut !) and though sometimes I see an obviously straight guy in the porn who is not really turned on by what is occurring. There seem to be others who seem to see this as an opportunity to release their inner gay. Though this is obviously the point of good porn. Sometimes I wonder if the pay packet and the fact that they are labelled as straight,that gives them the excuse they need to give to give into their deepest fantasies.
Lordy, Peter is back. And he is looking hotter than ever! And Lisa is starting to showcase her "Pump" staff. Is a spinoff in the works? I sincerely hope so...now that will be something to watch! I the meantime, presenting Peter:
Openly gay filmmaker Lee Daniels recently discussed his belief that gay men in the black community just "can't come out." The "Butler" director sat down with Larry King for an interview on "Larry King Now" and discussed when he first knew he was gay. He was just 5 years old when he knew "something wasn't right" after walking downstairs during his dad's poker game wearing his moms red pumps. His father, he said, beat him severely for the act. Daniels went on to discuss homophobia in the black community overall. "I think that [gays] are prejudiced upon even by the African-Americans, too," Daniels explained. He provided an anecdote about when he went to the Gay Men's Health Crisis center in New York City while doing research for his 2009 movie "Precious." He said he was shocked to see all black woman at the center: They [the center] service black women with AIDS. Why? Because black men can't come out. Why? Because simply you can't do it. Your family says it, your church says it, your teachers say it, your parents say it, your friends say it, your work says it. So you're living on this 'DL' thing and you're infecting black women. So it's killing us. I think that because the black culture and the Hispanic culture have a thing about this. Daniels, a Philadelphia native, has discussed being a gay black man before. In an interview with The Huffington Post last year, he said that gay people are "third-class citizens." "We are nothing to many people, especially in the African-American community," he said. "We are told, especially as black men, that we have to live up to certain expectations. The churches say it's not good. Our neighbors say it's not good. Our friends and family say it's not good. I am living in my truth, and I demand that in cinema, too." Daniels' honesty has led to people like BET's Keith Boykin commending him for breaking down barriers and challenging "the persistent meme of our community's homophobia."
I went through a period in high school where I was obsessed with Montgomery Clift and James Dean. Watched all their movies, read all the books about them, etc. Yes, I was a weird kid -they were hot guys, though!

My grandfather (my mother's father) died in 1984. My mother died in 1994. My father died in 2004. I'm the last of the family left. I have no brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles or cousins. There is no one left to take accept me. For the past decade, ever since my father died, I've been afraid that I will die in 2014. I have many medical aliments but at this time nothing, that I know of anyway, that is life threatening. My father died suddenly of a stoke, he had no high blood pressure, right before my eyes. Just like that, one second he was talking and the next he was gone, literally just a second later. So it can happen out of the blue just like that. I've told a shrink that I see and she thinks I'm just being superstitious but then again what's she going to say, "Yes you will die at 11:59 pm 12/31/14 at the latest." I know it's stupid buy I'm kinda nervous. I feel like for 10 years I've had this death sentence hanging over my head and like a prisoner on death row who is out of options I know my time is coming very soon. Has anyone had close relatives, ones that they really loved, die one at a time every ten years?
What happens at those away games?
Different types of writers, but contemporaries in a sense (of the '60s, and endlessly morbid, female authors). Female literary titans in a man's world. Who would you rather read?
Tonight on "Watch What Happens Live". What happened was a caller asked how they met each other and Andy said, "Anderson and I were set up years ago on a blind date," and a few minutes later Anderson chimed in to clarify, "It never happened because we spoke on the phone first and realized it wasn't going to happen." In other words, Anderson smelled Andy's fame whore desperation and couldn't hang up fast enough.

How much do you give? I give $100 each to the three doormen and three porters/superintendent. I have $35 to my hairstylist and $20 to the lady who washes my hair there. I give more than usual for taxis and waiter/waitresses during the holiday season. I used to be stingier with tips but now realize poorly some of these people are paid. I've recently gotten a good bump in my salary and figured I should share more. I have no idea what others give so I made up my tipping rules. What do you give?
I've told her truthfully that I am already committed to visiting my aunt and cousins, followed by visiting my mother's cousins, then followed by a visit to my best-friend and his husband. She says that I am lying and that she can't imagine that I have any plans at all. She insists upon coming and says that she will bring a "great tuna casserole". Julie does not do well with anything involving fish. What did Julie tell you? She definitely stalks people on DL.
The spitting image of her mama—and her papa! Shiloh Jolie-Pitt attended the L.A. premiere of her mom Angelina Jolie's war drama, Unbroken, on Monday, Dec. 15, looking positively adorable with her slicked-back blonde hair and snazzy suit. But her polished ensemble wasn't the only thing that stood out to Us: Look at how much she resembles her famous parents! See photos of Shiloh and her siblings at the premiere. Examining a picture of Jolie, 39, from 1986, when she just 11, it's easy to see that she and her daughter share the same high cheekbones, wide eyes, slightly upturned nose, and—most distinctly—plump pout. On the other hand, while the actress has brunette hair and green eyes, Shiloh has her dad Brad Pitt's sun-kissed blonde locks and baby blue peepers. (Here he is in his 1974 yearbook photo, when he was 11.) The elementary schooler also rocked the same serious expression on the red carpet as her famous pop, 50, not to mention his tailored style, making it so hard to decide whom she looks more like.

Is Judy Garland's only son really a drugged out mess ? You never see him.
He was personally chosen by Marilyn Monroe to play her murderous hunky lover in "Niagara." He's also in "With a Song in My Heart" singing opposite Susan Hayward in the title number. He was incredibly, almost painfully handsome and had a great body and could even sing beautifully, but he never made it. He later said, "You need a real burning ambition to make it in Hollywood. When it's clear that you're not going to, that drive just dies. Then you're left with the most terrible emptiness that never leaves."
Praise from Clint Eastwood on Sniper: “Yeah, he’s quick. I definitely had heard that before I started shooting, so I was, like, ‘I better bring it on the first take.’ But if you want another one, he’ll give you another one. I understand this way of working now — there is something about the first time you say a line that can never really be repeated. Normally, I’m anxious and over-complicated and my process is quite thorough. I would keep going because I very rarely feel satisfied. But somehow with him, he’s so relaxed that you just kind of trust it. On our first day, after we’d shot an emotional scene, I went up to him, ‘I was just thinking, maybe –’ and he was, like, ‘Have a great weekend.’ And as he was walking away he said, ‘You cast the right people,’ and that was the end of the day and I was, like, ‘Whoa.’ So that was kind of a great day — liberating. But then I had a bit of a meltdown.” On her second act as an actress: “I think it’s narrow-minded. I struggled in Hollywood because people had really strong perceptions of who I was and it was hard to see me as anything other than this persona. I just think I was well known for the wrong things, maybe. My personal life. It got very tabloidly. My phone got hacked and I was in newspapers all the time in London, which is the most vicious city in the world for that kind of attention. Or I was known for being fashionable.” How she fought that perception: “I sued everyone in England, basically. [Laughs] I have an injunction against paparazzi, so that’s now illegal. I obviously went to court with News of the World and the phone hacking and all of that. I took active steps and worked very hard to have a private life, which I have now had and enjoyed for six years. … So as a result of not having all those photos and not being on social media, I felt I’ve had the space to do my work.” She tried social media: “I did have Instagram for a week, and it sort of fueled the worst part of my soul. I’d wake up every morning and have more followers and people were, like, ‘Welcome! We love you!’ And I was like, ‘Hee-hee, wow! This is actually fulfilling me!’ But I realized it was filling that part of you that will not ever be filled.”
Who are you surprised is still around? Personally, I'm amazed people still think a leaked Madonna record is BIG NEWS in 2014. Keeping it trite...model girl Kate Moss, still gets major campaigns. The tabloids still follow her every move. In fact models with long careers surprise me the most...some of those '80s supermodels were around for YEARS....decades! I'm not surprised McCartney & Elton John are still around crocking out songs because they were so big, there'll always be an interest (not from me though).
I know her company produced it, but Reese was so miscast as a former hardcore party girl. Would've been a perfect role for J-Law.

Whether the massage is legit or not, if you are getting a massage where it's cash-only, do you tip the guy? He's making 100% profit off what you pay him already. Do you only tip the guys who give you a happy ending? Just curious as to what DLers do in this situation.
I work in an office and my trailer-trash fat fucking neighbor came into work yesterday sick as a dog. Sneezing, coughing and itchy eyes- and never covered his crusty mouth. I lysoled my desk often and purelled my hands often. So of course much to my surprise i woke up with the sniffles this morning. I have too much going on this weekend to be sick and this asshole came in cause he didnt want to waste a personal day. Asshole!

With her peroxide hair and trademark miniskirts, Debbie Harry will always be the ultimate pin-up for a certain generation of men. But at the age of 68, she is ready to quit legendary pop group Blondie. After nearly 40 years since they formed, the band are planning a swansong world tour next year before Harry hangs up her microphone for good. Drummer Clem Burke says that discussions about splitting up have been going on for the past year, with Harry, a former Playboy Bunny, concerned about her age. ‘Debbie is 11 years older than the rest of us, so it’s on her mind,’ Burke, 57, said at an exhibition of paintings by the late singer Ian Dury at London’s Royal College of Art. ‘We’ve tried to keep it going for as long as possible, but it’s not just up to me. Nothing is finalised yet, but obviously there’s no Blondie without Debbie Harry.’ The American singer, pictured right in her heyday, showed signs of strain during the band’s most recent UK tour. Last month she caused uproar during a performance in Liverpool when she declared her love for rival city Manchester. ‘It went down so badly that we were forced to play a rendition of The Beatles’ Please Please Me,’ Burke says. ‘Poor Debbie hadn’t joined the dots, so I had to intervene.’ Blondie enjoyed phenomenal success in the late 1970s – topping the charts on both sides of the Atlantic with hits such as Heart Of Glass and Sunday Girl – before splitting for the first time in 1982, when Harry launched a solo career. The group re-formed in 1996 and reached No 3 in the UK charts with comeback album No Exit. They have been touring on and off ever since. A spokesman for Debbie Harry said: ‘They are in a hiatus at the moment. They will do some tour dates next year. Nothing is confirmed yet.’

Nikki Finke, Hollywood Chronicler, Said to Be in Talks With Politico By RAVI SOMAIYA DEC. 19, 2014 Politico has been in talks to hire the Hollywood journalist Nikki Finke to write about Washington as a political columnist, people familiar with the discussions said Friday. Ms. Finke has visited Washington to meet with senior Politico staff, but has not committed to the move, said the people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the negotiations were continuing. She has also been in talks with other publications, including the New York Observer, for several months. Ms. Finke grew infamous in Los Angeles for aggressive coverage of the entertainment industry, which made her former website, Deadline Hollywood, into a draw for breaking industry news. Penske Media acquired the site in 2009. But in 2012 it purchased Variety, a competing Hollywood trade publication, which sparked a dispute that resulted in Ms. Finke’s leaving the company. Ms. Finke and Penske recently came to settlement terms, which prohibited her from writing about the entertainment industry for another company. Writing about Washington might circumnavigate that agreement. Ms. Finke and Politico had no immediate comment.

My office is across the main lobby from another office space. It's vacant and belongs to the main tenant in the building that has about 80 employees on the second floor. It sits there completely barren; no carpet, some chairs and some fold up tables. It's a big space. I walked by and the double doors were open, and I heard Christmas music just barely playing. In the middle of this huge space were two fold up tables with some soda, a pan of something that smelled like Italian food, two cakes in their original plastic containers and some bags of chips, An office cart was festively decorated. It all looked so sad and pathetic, and I felt sad for the group of people there. What has happened to companies that they treat people so badly? My company does not have one. I think I prefer that to something like what I saw.

Perhaps no other show on the air has experienced such whiplash-inducing extremes of praise and criticism as "Homeland," a program that's become a cautionary tale about the dangers of creating ambitious television in an era of relentless scrutiny and ever-increasing expectations. A critical darling and instant sensation when it premiered in 2011, the Showtime series had, by the end of its third season last year, become a pop culture punching bag, thanks to plot twists that occasionally strained credulity or were, according to some, executed in bad faith. Not only did the critics howl, but the awards suddenly dried up: In 2012, "Homeland" swept the Emmys, including for dramatic series; this year it wasn't even nominated in the category. But don't count it out just yet. When "Homeland" returns Sunday night with successive episodes, it may just woo back the skeptics. Following what show runner Alex Gansa calls a "major reset," the series has a new international setting, a spate of new characters and a revived focus on espionage rather than domestic melodrama. Most notable among the changes is the absence of Nicholas Brody, the POW turned congressman turned international fugitive played by Damian Lewis who was a love interest for Claire Danes' troubled CIA analyst, Carrie Mathison. And — spoiler alert for those behind on their Season 3 viewing — Lewis' character was executed during a covert mission in Iran. (Also off the show: his family, including much-maligned teenage daughter Dana.) "It's a post-Brody 'Homeland,'" Gansa said. "It was incumbent on us to take Carrie, this character that people have come to know over the past three years, and put her in a new geographical space and a new emotional space and to make that story feel compelling. It's up to all our fans and our critics to tell us if we're successful or not." Accordingly, the setting has moved from the relative safety of Washington, D.C., and its suburbs to the Middle East — specifically to the hot zones of Afghanistan and Pakistan, where Carrie has been reassigned. "The big idea this season was that we wanted to see this character do the thing she was trained to do, and that is be an intelligence officer overseas," Gansa said. Following Brody's harrowing death, the first step in rebuilding the show was deciding where to send its protagonist. At the end of Season 3, Carrie, pregnant with the daughter she conceived with Brody, had just been appointed station chief in Istanbul. However tempting it might have been to film there, the city was quickly ruled out because the Turkish government would have required script approval on every episode, according to Gansa. His effort to postpone the season a few months to allow more time for retooling met resistance from Showtime, he said.

Washington dismissed North Korea’s proposal to hold a joint investigation. A spokesman for the White House National Security Council (NSC), Mark Stroh, said Saturday that “If the North Korean government wants to help, they can admit their culpability and compensate Sony for the damages this attack caused.”

It's Taylor Farms chopped kale salad and it also contains chopped broccoli stalks, Brussels sprouts, and something red, maybe radicchio (I don't have the bag with me to read the exact ingredients). It comes with poppy seed dressing, dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds both packed separately. The down side is it's not organic and the dressing is made with soy oil, which I try to avoid, another reason I only had a little of their dressing and mostly had my own, but it's so good you really don't need much to get the flavor of it. I used mostly my own red wine vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and a little of the poppy seed dressing and a bit of the cranberries and pumpkin seeds. The dressing is so delicious that I could have just drowned the salad in it but I stopped myself. The greens themselves are crisp and have a sweetness to them. I did add a tiny bit of feta and 2 olives. So freakin' good. I usually have to force myself to eat my nightly salad but this I could have had seconds. It's 28 oz. and cost under 5 dollars and had a 9 day expiration date. It will never last until the 31st but it's made from greens that all keep well so I wouldn't be surprised if it really does have that lone a life. Most bagged salads I buy go bad long before they expiration date on the bag. They usually last 3 days tops. Has anyone seen this anywhere besides Costco? I never have and I don't get there that often. Oh well, I'll enjoy it while I have it. I bought one of the ready made Costco chicken's with it but I was so satisfied with the salad I hardly ate any of the chicken thigh I cut from the whole chicken to have tonight. YUM!
Pregnant again after giving birth in Febraury. Gh-ett-o. Even Kate had the decency to wait more than a year. "Kate Middleton isn’t the only royal with a bun in the oven. Princess Madeleine of Sweden is pregnant, expecting another prince or princess — just ten months after welcoming her first child Princess Leonore, the 32-year-old revealed via Facebook on Friday, Dec. 19. "We are very happy and look forward to welcoming a new member to our family," Madeleine and her British-American banker husband Christopher O’Neill, 40, said in a statement. The exciting news comes less than a year after the couple welcomed their first child, daughter Leonore, who is fifth in line to the throne, in February."

I know straight guys watch lesbian porn, but I'm curious as to why so many women are into guy-on-guy. What is it about it that turns them on so much? I could understand watching a guy solo (looking at the body), but bringing another guy into the picture and having him fuck the other one is a whole other story. Why do they find it so hot? Has it been researched? It's so common now. Good for them, btw!
