Came up on this little oddity on YouTube. It's a midi musical score so eliminates the need for an orchestra. The singing is lipsynced. So there isn't much else for the cast to do but just meander around the stage. And it results in one really bad regional production. I thought maybe it was one of those productions that people with mental disabilities put on for people but why choose this? The overture and the "Superstar" itself are just bad.
I'm suspecting one of you bitches did something.
This movie [bold]ROCKS[/bold]. Will it be the one to finally topple Titanic? Furious 7 is still furiously climbing up the charts, trying to overtake Marvel's The Avengers. To topple Avatar, it will need to rake in about $2.8 billion. Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, and the very beautiful Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Oh, and anybody want to volunteer to lift Thor's thick, heavy hammer? Captain America can make it tingle.

I found an I interesting thread on Reddit about creepy experiences while camping or hiking. It's over 3,800 replies so I found some really good stories. Thought I would pass it on for others who like to read this kind of stuff.. Do you have a creepy camping story?

the Streisand film, might prove to be interesting. This was a bit hit and once considered hilarious and one of Streisand's best comedies. Now, it's nowhere to be found and it's probably because it's so politically incorrect. Streisand says FAG many times throughout, for one thing. Also, this film was RATED X when it first came out--anyone know why? I know Streisand was supposed to do a nude scene that ended up on the cutting room floor. Was it just the language that gave it the rating?
Diana Ossana and Larry McMurty, the writing duo who won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for Brokeback Mountain, are gearing up for another gay drama. The story centers around the true story of Jadin Bell, a 15-year-old openly gay sophomore who committed suicide in 2013 after relentless bullying by classmates His grief-stricken father, Joe, embarked on a walk across the continental United States as a tribute to his son and to raise awareness of anti-LGBT bullying. Halfway through his cross-country trek, though, Joe was struck and killed by a semi. (The driver was charged with reckless driving.) The tragic tale will be brought to the screen by Ossana and McMurty, and directed by True Detective executive producer Cary Fukunaga. We’re already emotionally preparing ourselves.

In my hometown. I've been going there for 30 years. I moved away a long time ago, but whenever I went back there, I always stopped in for a gyro and spinach pie. If I went with friends or family, we'd share a plate of hummus and tahini with pita and cucumbers. Baklava for dessert. Now that I think of it, it's one of the only Greek restaurants for many towns. Greek diners are also changing hands now that the owners are retiring and their kids don't want to run a diner. Chinese immigrants are taking over the diners. Where will we get our souvlaki and avgolemono in a few years? Will we lose all that Greek food?
or is it staged? I'm not sure what the laws are there. I sometimes find it depressing to watch, which can make it unfappable.
Extra credit if you can add the Coast Guard.

Did any of you defect from your childhood religion and, if so, was your decision based on your religion's treatment of homosexuality or was it due to general philosophical differences? I was raised in the very conservative and oppressive Church of Christ (not to be confused with the liberal and humanistic United Church of Christ). I broke away for both reasons. What does the REM song mean?

I've dealt with a lot of trashy people in my life, but I've really come to hate them over the last several years. They seem to revel in being gross, useless and a burden on society. I'm not rich, and I'm not a snob but when you purposely act like trash you deserve all the derision that comes your way.

......but it's taken down 40 minutes later The Baltimore Police Union set up a GoFundMe page for the six officers arrested in connection to Freddie Gray's death - only for it to be taken down 40 minutes later. The organization, which compared protesters to a 'lynch mob', tried to set up an account, but it was shut down as it violated the fundraising website's terms and conditions. They had reportedly raised around $1000 before it was deleted. The description on the site read: 'The Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #3 has been overwhelmed with the enormous generosity of people from around the world. 'We have received many requests to open an online account that will accept monetary donations for the 6 officers who have been wrongly charged in the death of Freddie Gray. 'All monies collected will be used to assist our officers with their living expenses during their unpaid suspension. as well as to help defray their legal expenses. 'We thank you, in advance, for your continued support.' After discovering their profile was no longer active, they tweeted: 'Apparently our GoFundMe account has been suspended with no explanation. We are working to find a new site for donations. Thank you!' According to GoFundMe's guidelines, a page will be in violation if it: 'Campaigns in defense of formal charges or claims of heinous crimes, violent, hateful, sexual or discriminatory acts.' The police union sparked controversy on Wednesday for their attempt to smear protesters. 'Which one is the #LynchMob again?' John Cotton tweeted, posting a photo of a peaceful protest next to photos of Gray during his arrest and hospitalization. An attorney for the Gray family said the choice of words was especially inappropriate given the history of African-Americans being lynched. 'The choice of words is not only ironic, it's sad,' said Andrew O'Connell. 'Police officers are never the subject of a lynch mob. It's actually usually the other way around,' he told CNN. 'And in the context of the powder keg that Baltimore city is right now, referring to the citizens of Baltimore city who are peacefully protesting as a 'lynch mob' doesn't serve to keep the peace. It only heightens the flames, or fans the flames of people who are already on edge.' Two further rallies are scheduled for Thursday including one at noon, and one at 3 p.m. After the charges of the six officers were announced on Friday, a lawyer retained to represent them denounced it as an 'egregious rush to judgement'. 'We believe that these officers will be vindicated as they have done nothing wrong,' said Michael Davey, a lawyer working for the city's Fraternal Order of Police. 'I have never seen such a hurried rush to file criminal charges,' he said, arguably suggesting prosecutors had been rushed into acting by pressure from a week of street demonstrations.
I worry about doomsday scenarios all the time - that I'll lose my job, get cancer, somehow get "found out" as a bad person and lose my friends, and so forth. SSRIs help but not totally. Anyone else like this? What helped you change perspective? All this worrying is so exhausting.

Meet the "dad bod," a new way to describe that guy who has let his college-athlete body fall to the wayside. Behind the layer of soft pudge, you can tell this dude once played lacrosse or football. It's a term that's forced itself into the mainstream in the past 36 hours. And everyone's loving it. The dad bod was brought to light initially by Mackenzie Pearson, a 19-year-old Clemson University sophomore who wrote the premiere "dad bod" 101 about a month ago for The Odyssey — think Elite Daily meets your college paper. Pearson's post, called "Why Girls Love the Dad Bod," describes the physique as "a nice balance between a beer gut and working out." She writes: "The dad bod says, 'I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time.' It's not an overweight guy, but it isn't one with washboard abs, either." This isn't the first time a crazy trend buzzword sparked immediate popularity. Remember normcore? The term, introduced to mainstream pop culture by New York Magazine in February 2014, put a name to a certain unassuming style wreaking havoc on the streets of New York City. Also referred to as "blank clothes" or "mall clothes," normcore looks include light denim jeans, a polo shirt, and a sweatshirt, white athletic sneakers, and a visor. Normcore describes anyone who dresses like a dad ... or the cast of "Seinfeld." While the term is now pretty well known — The New York Times even wrote about it! — its successor, the dad bod, has just arrived on the scene, and it looks like, once again, fathers just can't catch a break. Neither can Jason Segel, who has unknowingly become the face of the dad bod — publications keep using his photo as art for their dad-bod stories. Since Pearson's post started to make its way around Twitter and Facebook, the idea behind the dad bod was picked up by GQ and NYMag. The latter even came up with a "dad-bod diet," encouraging those who wanted the perfect dad bod.
Anybody else ordering it? It'll be over by round 6, but still, I wanna see it.

I once told a sociopathic ex that he was a sociopath. He just stared blankly at me. It's not like you can cure it.
His most popular songs boil down to these two messages: "Life is fabulous! Shake your ass!" or "Beware, that woman is sexually insatiable! She terrifies me!"

Fran frau cult BI: Their leader inhabits a subterranean basement, permanently welded to the keyboard, 68 bags of Cheetos, 80 bottles of Mountain Dew and a pisspot under her chair. She has family, but they no longer frequent her house due to the smell and the dangerously high piles of hoarded paraphernalia of a certain franchise, which may topple at any moment. She has regulars at her blog, but the numbers are dwindling, so she must create ranting tirades on twitter to attract attention. Her life is a sad and lonely one, but the fact that she is such a horrific (sub)human being, no sympathy comes her way. Who is she?
She looks like she's lost a shit-ton of weight. He doesn't look happy. Is she dying?
Did she emasculate him? Drive him to suicide? Both?

While he couldn’t indulge in same-sex crushes during his previous incarnation, he’s far less miserable now that he can show up at gay clubs and call it “research” (we hear he likes his research rough). It’s one thing to cavort with male strippers overseas, but it’s pretty foolish to do so stateside – even at a private home. Happily, his gal pal ain’t the jealous type. In fact, her only complaint is she’d really like to be able to wear high heels again. Be careful what you wish for…"
I cannot stand sitting aside any longer, during these times of tremendous moment for our community. And by that I mean us Diva-Americans. My lipo-plastique accident that caused my slim passably-thin-for-the-60s plush pursers to swell up until I looked like a baboon ass bending over while the thing sat on my face has been fixulated and I am back to my timeless presentation of too-cool radiance. Just let me tell you, though, in case you're tempted. The Fountain of Youth is not something attached to what looks like a firehose with a Courtney-Love-sticker on the end. But back to the issues. I am afraid it is time to take a leadership role with the community. Ferguson, St. Louis, Baltimore - I am deeply offended by what it tells me about our people. Mainly, YOU ARE LOOTING WEAVE SHACKS AND CVS? Shit. I mean, if you want to make a statement you head to the Galleria or Towson Town Center. They'll get your goddamned outrage there. Throwing a brick through a pawn shop to grab an old lady's zirconia is NOT how it's done. Look at Oprah. When she was in Paris setting up to hit Hermes, she was doing the freedom run right. Until they caught her and she made up that "You closed because I am not French and the color of ivory" bullshit. You KNOW how they all hushed that shit up fast. SO because of my upset and my not being able to stand Hillary's pear-cut pant suits any more, or that Charlie-Brown-in-drag head-and-hair look of hers, I am going to be making a very important announcement soon. And just for a hint, if it all works out I shall NOT be inviting Re to do the Star Spangled Banner come January 2017. But otherwise I am happy to announce that Damont and CIndi have have a couple of babies. Darling. I told him I could get him 50k on the Arab market for the spare, but they say they're keeping both. MORE mouths for me to watch going hungry while I collect mine off the top. Such responsibility, to be a mogul diva with ambitionations. Bobbi Kristina? Let's just say that last I heard Cissy had put some potting soil up her ear holes and started some cucumber plants. I think she is slipping - Cissy I mean, because BK has done slipped as far as life's banana can fucking land her - because she keeps muttering, "Now she's my little vegetable." Cissy always made the best crystal pickles. Yes, even from space I could see that a one-armed cripple, a Mormon geek-cousin-of-the-whore-and-closet-case and two white men who can't walk straight would last longer than Patti on that dance thing show. Fuck, she looked like a villain out of H.R. Pufnstuf - that gash-mouth, fat-hip, no-ass shaking around was just too. Too fucking too. And I sold three more copies of my last album. Well, three sets were downloaded. They told me a iTunes the people had made a mistake but I'm counting them, damn it. So I am setting up exploratory committees and of course will be seeking donations from my many fans and supporters. I've got enough pictures from the old days that I could just about knock half the runnners out of the box. But for the record I have nothing on Bill. You think I can't smell herpes when it waggles its ugly fat head at me, all drooly like? I just know Barbra had a lot of explaining to do when she passed it on to that TV man she married.
Did they ever have an affair? She seems to prudish for that sort of thing.

Washington (CNN)Bernie Sanders' nascent presidential campaign announced Friday that it raised more than $1.5 million in its first 24 hours, a number that far outpaces what Republican presidential hopefuls posted in their first day. Sanders, the independent senator from Vermont who caucuses with Democrats, kicked off his dark horse campaign for the Democratic nomination on Thursday with an email to supporters and a press conference outside the U.S. Capitol. Since then, more than 100,000 people signed up for the campaign and 35,000 people donated money, according to a campaign press release. The average donation was $43.54. "This is a remarkable start for Bernie's campaign," said Tad Devine, the campaign's senior adviser. "People across America are yearning for authentic leadership that tells them the truth about what is holding back our nation. Bernie Sanders understands the problems we face." Sanders' 24-hour fundraising haul puts him ahead of what every currently declared Republican presidential hopeful posted in their first day. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul's campaign announced that it had raised $800,000 a day in. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's campaign raised $1 million in the first 24-hours of its existence. And Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's campaign raised $1.25 million in its first day. The only other Democrat in the race -- former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton -- did not announce what her campaign raised in its first 24 hours and declined to do so on Friday. Sanders is an outspoken critic of the proliferation of big money in politics. He regularly rails against the Koch Brothers, the Republican uber-donors, and has said that his campaign would be devoid of "billionaires." At the bottom of his website, underneath the required phrase "Paid For By Bernie 2016," his website proclaims, "Not The Billionaires." "I don't believe that the men and women who defended American democracy fought to create a situation where billionaires own the political process," Sanders said at his announcement press conference. "That's a huge issue." In the lead-up to his presidential campaign, Sanders and his aides openly worried about whether he would be able to raise the money needed to mount a serious challenge to what will certainly be a well-funded Clinton campaign. "To run a credible campaign in this day and age, you do need a whole lot of money," Sanders said. "Whether the magic number is $200 million, or it is $150 million, it is a lot of money, but even with that, you would be enormously outspent by the Koch Brother candidates and the other candidates who will likely spend, in the final analysis, over $1 billion, if not two."
The gay porn industry is mourning the loss of performer Rylan Knox who died after hanging himself in his boyfriend’s apartment late yesterday, Str8UpGayPorn reports. Knox’s suicide was first announced last night by his friend and fellow performer Nick Cross, who shared series of tweets asking his followers to “cherish [their] lives.” Str8UpGayPorn adds: Knox’s body was found in his boyfriend’s apartment at approximately 7:30 p.m. EST. As of post time, no other details were available. Many of Knox’s colleagues, including Colt Rivers, Boomer Banks, and Ryan Rose (who just appeared in last month’s Poolside with Knox), took to social media to offer their condolences as the news spread. Knox, a relative newcomer who had performed in multiple scenes for Falcon, GayCastings, NakedSword, and Hot House in the past year, called Florida his home and was extremely well-liked among fans, directors, and co-stars. The tragic news comes less than a month after 18-year-old Corbin Fisher performer “Clay” was the suspect in a workplace shooting before he turned the gun on himself and committed suicide a short time later. If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts or behaviors, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or online at suicidepreventionlifeline .org for help

Getting manscaped for his new movie
Floyd Mayweather Jr. extended his undefeated record beating Manny Pacquiao in one of the most widely anticipated boxing matches of the decade. "He's a hell of a fighter," Mayweather, who now stands at 48-0, said after the match. "I outboxed him." Pacquiao didn't seem to think so. "I thought I won the fight," Pacquiao said, adding that Mayweather was "moving around" and "he didn't do nothing."
Following his split with Miley Cyrus he's started crafting for himself a big body, although not quite at the level of what his father's used to be.

I've never seen Queer as Folk, and couldn't pick Gale Harold out from a lineup, but someone on here seems to be obsessed with the show and him. I don't get it. is it just someone who seriously is obsessed with him? Or is it a joke I don't get because I never watched the show? There just seem to be SO MANY threads about someone who doesn't even register on my scale as someone we should discuss. Or is that the joke?
This is inspired by various Reddit threads. So post your own, real-life experience. I'll go first. I've had several but I'll tell a few here. Me and my best friend used to be fascinated with a local cemetery. It's claim to fame is that a notorious killer is buried their in an unmarked grave. Anyway, the cemetery is gorgeous. Lots of roses and other flowers. Lots of old statues. The huge gates at the entrance used to be kept open at night. So my friend and I would drive in there and explore. Well, one night we were exploring and we had stopped the car and had the lights off for some reason. This would have been about 1 AM. I noticed headlights ahead and told my friend that we might be busted. Instead, I see the headlights pull into a mausoleum. The mausoleum is beautiful and was decorated in that faux-Egyptian style and even had a stylized sun disk with wings over the top of it. Anyway, it turned out to be a black limo. Out of the limo exits the driver who opens the door and lets three or four men out. The drive gets back into the car. The 3 or 4 men are dressed in black suits and walk up to the mausoleum, unlock it, and walk in. We freaked out! Our lights were off but we were afraid they would still see us because we weren't that far away from them. So we wait for about 30 minutes hoping they would come out and leave. Nope! After about 45 minutes we decide that we can't sit here much longer and my friend says we need to start the car and casually drive off with our lights off. So we do that. Instead of going down the road that leads right past the mausoleum we decide to take a road we had never taken before and prayed that it led to the exit. Out of nowhere behind us comes a car that had it's headlights off as well. It turns on it's high beams, scaring the shit out of us. The car is riding my bumper. I immediately floored it. We made it out of the gate and that second car, a black car, just stopped half-way out of the gate. We went back a few weeks later and found that the huge gate was closed and locked. Now, every time we go back at night it's closed and locked so we think they did that because of us. I've include a picture of a similar mausoleum. This is not the same one but this is very close to what it looked like. As to what was going down, we think it was a secret society of some form or another. Because none of the men had anything in their hands and because they were in the mausoleum so long I think that there is like a trapped door or secret entrance or tunnel there that they use to attend their meetings.
Here's a new thread for lovely Lee
Woo hoo! Shipping confirmed. I'm special. .
Professional bowler Scott Norton publicly announced yesterday that he is gay via a post on the Professional Bowler's Association website. Norton, who was awarded the PBA Rookie of the Year Award, was inspired by the coming out of Phoenix Suns President & CEO Rick Welts earlier this week. Read Norton's personal statement, posted on the PBA website, below: On May 15, Phoenix Suns CEO and President Rick Welts announced publicly that he is gay. That announcement was important to me because he is someone who is actively involved in professional sports and has publicly acknowledged his sexuality. While many athletes wait until they retire to officially come out, the fact that Mr. Welts has the courage to do so while still actively involved with the NBA has encouraged me to also acknowledge that I am a gay athlete. It is extremely important for me to come out to show other gay athletes, both current and future, that it is important to come out to show that we are just like everyone else. Being gay doesn%E2%80%99t define who I am as a person or as a professional athlete. I'm also a professional bowler, lawyer, caring, compassionate, strong, and many other things. It's important to show people that being gay has nothing to do with one's ability to do anything as a man, least of all compete at the highest level of sports. In 2009, after successfully passing my California bar exam, I made a decision to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a professional bowler. I entered and won the PBA Regional Players Invitational, which gave me the opportunity to bowl full-time on the Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour during the 2010-11 season, and I was fortunate enough to win the Chameleon Championship in Las Vegas for my first PBA Tour title. At the conclusion of my first year on tour, I was selected by my fellow players as PBA Rookie of the Year. It was the culmination of years of hard work and dreams, and made every obstacle I had to overcome worthwhile. I have encountered specific obstacles due to my sexuality, but I really do not wish to cause a great deal of turmoil in the industry or make waves. The issues that were in the past remain in the past but there were serious impediments to my progression to becoming a professional bowler. They only made me stronger and made me the person I am today. Those issues only strengthened my belief that knowledge is vital in our path to acceptance. I will say, however, that my experience on the PBA tour surpassed nearly everything I could hope for in terms of acceptance. The vast majority of bowlers out on tour were accepting and welcoming as were all the staff, which deeply touched me. I know from my own experiences that it was difficult for me personally to acknowledge being gay because of the shame and stigma brought on by society and I was afraid of not being accepted. I know it is more prevalent in the female sporting community to be gay, but I wouldn't necessarily say it makes it easier. It just means there are more people around to share your story with. I don't feel I have that kind of connection with anyone since many people I am around on our tour do not have that perspective. I am very proud and happy with who I am and who I have become as a person, and I would hope that this will empower other gay athletes %E2%80%93 past, present, or future %E2%80%93 to come to terms with the truth about who they are and love themselves for who they are. I appreciate the discretion and care with which the PBA staff has handled my situation. I have tried to conduct myself in a professional manner at all times and try to put forth a good reputation both for my community and for the PBA and sport of bowling. I am currently working with Compete Sports, a gay sports network, as an advisor in developing different forms of media coverage (publishing, radio, and soon tv) which will hopefully bring even more exposure to our sport, as well as increased tolerance and acceptance within the sports community. I hope everyone will continue to see me as the person I am, and nothing more, nothing less. Scott Norton, PBA Rookie of the Year.
Almost one third of London men are so overweight they are unable to see their own genitals, according to a survey. The study, carried out across all regions of the UK, found the highest percentage of men who could not see their privates due to their bulging stomachs were in the West Midlands and the lowest number in the South East. A new online men's health service has launched a campaign to encourage men to watch their weight by checking if the view of their penis is obstructed. WeLoveOurHealth.co.uk - has launched the 'Big Check' Campaign. The initiative, backed by leading medical professionals, hopes to encourage men to make one simple, yet potentially lifesaving health check - by asking "Can you see your manhood?" - to highlight the importance of a man's waist measurement, rather than his Body Mass Index (BMI), for determining his risk of developing weight-related illness such as stroke, diabetes and heart disease. The website's online doctor, and A&E specialist Dr Johan du Plessis, said: "This new research is really worrying and men must be encouraged to wake up to the potential life threatening risks of being overweight and to make this vital check. "An obese man who can't see his penis is five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, three times more likely to develop cancer of the colon and more than two and a half times more likely to develop high blood pressure - a major risk factor for stroke and heart disease."

Seems like it's been an ongoing practice for quite a few years for certain stars (McBongo, Brad Pitt, Depp, etc.) to have reportedly horrendous body odor. Could somebody explain this to me? Is it drugs and if so, what's the connection? Is it some weird badge of honor? Is it an FU to the world? I just don't get it.

Says he misses his children. PITY HIM!!!
A Texas veterinarian was fired after a Facebook photo showing her with her "first bow kill" -- a local cat -- went viral. Dr. Kristen Lindsey bragged online that she killed a "feral" cat in her neighborhood in Brenham. She posted a photo on Wednesday, which shows her holding up the dead cat by an arrow protruding from its head, according to KBTX. The caption reads: [italic]"My first bow kill, lol. The only good feral tomcat is one with an arrow through it's head! Vet of the year award ... Gladly accepted."[/italic] Lindsey apparently didn't know that the "feral tomcat" she bagged was actually Tiger, a 6-year-old orange Tabby who went missing earlier on Wednesday. A Facebook page titled "Justice For Tiger" was quickly set up and called for Lindsey to be charged with a crime. The page has photos of Tiger as well as a video that the kitty's owner posted to YouTube in November. Lindsey also wasn't aware that she'd be fired on Friday. After the photo went viral, she reportedly posted to Facebook, "No I did not lose my job. Lol. Psshh. Like someone would get rid of me. I’m awesome!" Though she was eventually canned, it wasn't immediately clear whether she'd face criminal charges. Austin County Sheriff Jack Brandes told KBTX that he'd forward the case to the district attorney for review. Tiger's supporters have been lambasting the scorned vet since the news broke. That said, Lindsey does have supporters of her own. Some of her clients visited her clinic to leave flowers, saying she was good at her job. The Texas Veterinary Medical Associated issued a press release condemning the post: [italic]We are saddened and disturbed by the unfortunate actions of this individual, and we remind Texas residents that this conduct is not reflective of the veterinary profession or of the veterinarians who strive to embody the words of the veterinarian’s oath every day. Upon learning of the troubling misconduct, the Brenham clinic where the veterinarian was practicing immediately condemned her actions and terminated her employment. [/italic] Lindsey later removed the post and took down her Facebook page.

So much passion around this. I feel very strongly but I can see where others who don't share my view might be reluctant to speak up. So a poll: simple question... the privacy of the voting booth...
Does anyone have an online business or store? A friend and I are thinking of starting off an online homewares store catering mostly to men - artworks, prints, decorations, bedlinens, knickknacks, bags and wallets all with a masculine edge. I'm the web designer/graphic artist and my friend produces amazing photography and crafty type projects - cool ones not shit stuff. He's just done a trip overseas to source product. Does anyone have any advice about pitfalls or things to be aware of? Dos and don'ts? Many thanks!
Nursing and cooking stand out to me. There seem to be so many overweight nurses. I realize the job is stressful and can lead to stress eating, but I wonder how they can perform their jobs without being in excruciating pain. Hospital shifts are 12 hours and they are on their feet for most of them. Watching Food Network, it seems that almost half the competing chefs and celebrity chefs are overweight. The Chopped judging panel seemed to get larger and larger across the seasons. These are people who work 12-16 hours on their feet in hot kitchens. As a former fatty myself (I lost 70 lbs), I don't know how they manage. Cooking a Thanksgiving dinner led to terrible foot, back, knee, leg pain. Moving and even sitting still hurt a lot afterwards.
One of you guys needs to get him drunk so he'll dish the dirt!
THE AFTERMATH Starring... Kim Richards (What's she up to now?: A few bottles of vodka, most likely a few more bottles of pills, a lawsuit, a relapse, a scandal, estranged relatives, and a killer dog MIA. Whew! This little spitfire is taking on too much drama! In all seriousness, though, please get well soon, Kim! We all know that at the center, there's a heart of gold. No, really.) Kim Richards (What's she up to now?: Still estranged from Kim after Fingergate--and maybe not too happy with Kathy either--but still trying to pick up the billions of shards. Just don't get cut, sweetie. Cuts can get infected.) Lisa Rinna (What's she up to now?: Schlepping schmatta to QVC for a few more shekels until the next Bravo paycheck. She's also sending Twitter love to Kim. Uh, sure baby.) Eileen Davidson (What she up to now?: F*cking DOOL bitches up as the evil Kristen DiMera. She'll also be starring as the President of the United States alongside Jamie Lee Curtis in the upcoming flick, Spychosis. How's that for Revenge?) Yolanda Foster (What's she up to now?: In bed somewhere, watching time tick by. In all seriousness, though, please get well soon, Yolanda!) Brandi Glanville (What's she up to now?: Same shit, different cock, different bottle of booze.) Lisa Vanderpump (What's she up to now?: Getting ready for the series debut of her new show featuring her new bar, Pump. Name suggestion: Vanderpump Tools. Heh.) with... Bravo Execs busily making casting decisions for Season 6. It'll be a doozy!
Who knew? And he was totally hot when he was young.
Which would you still do?
I often hear conservatives blast Jon Stewart for being nothing but another cog in the ever churning wheel of the liberal media. Granted he definitely leans to the left, but I’ve seen plenty of times where he’s hammered liberals and Democrats, and openly mocked many people on the left. That’s something you’ll rarely see Fox News do to Republicans. Hell, even when someone on Fox News calls out a Republican, it’s often just because they’re trying to prop up another member of the GOP. That being said, on Thursday night’s show Stewart decided to address the recent announcement by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) that he’s running for president, mocking the fact that, while the Vermont senator is fairly popular among many who follow politics regularly, the vast majority of Americans have no idea who he is. “He’s basically running as the anti-Hillary,” Stewart proclaimed. “She’s an establishment centrist, he’s an unapologetic leftist. Her campaign is managed to a T, he forgot his comb.” Much of the segment seemed to teeter back and forth between Stewart mocking Sanders for having absolutely no chance at winning, to pointing out that he’s clearly the more reliable liberal of the two (a fact that I don’t think anyone denies). But I think the overwhelming tone of the segment was: To take a few shots at Hillary because it’s clear Stewart is not her biggest fan. To point out that Sanders stands absolutely no chance at winning. It’s like I’ve said before, if you really believe Sanders stands a chance at becoming president, you really need to rethink everything you think you know about how politics works. There’s absolutely no way a guy who’ll be 75 in 2016, who describes himself as a socialist, is going to get elected president. I’m a huge Bernie Sanders fan and I love what he’s fought for in the Senate, but I’m also a realist. Not only that, but Sanders - like Elizabeth Warren - is best suited for the Senate. Some liberals seem to think Sanders running will be “good for Hillary,” irrationally thinking that he’s going to somehow “bring her to the left.” Granted, that kind of rhetoric sounds good – it just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. The only way Sanders will bring her more to the left is by being what he’s been in the Senate – a fighter for a common sense approach to income inequality and our economy in general. Like I’ve said numerous times before, it doesn’t matter who’s president, they’re going to be beholden to whatever Congress we give them. If that president is a Democrat, and the Congress is controlled by Republicans who simply refuse to pass anything that the president supports, then we’re simply going to see more of what we’ve seen the last few years – a whole lot of nothing getting done.

Let's post pictures of amazing balls... goose-eggs, low-hangers, or just plain amazing sacks. Whatever, as long as the focus is on the balls!
Broad category, but hopefully this thread will catch a lot of sexy men, in and out clothing!
I watched it again on Netflix last night. Anthony Minghella directed so of course it was beautiful. Paltrow was wonderful and Matt Damon did ok, but boy did he look nerdy and toothy. There was a scene where Marge drops ice cubes on the floor and the floor is made of stunning blue/green tiles. The sets were amazing. I thought it was supposed to be the 1940s, but the year was 1959. Patricia Highsmith was a piece of work.
The 2015 season officially starts now! What do you ball kids want to see happen this year? Me: 1) Lesbian coaches Martina Navratilova and Amelie Mauresmo lead their respective pupils, Agnieszka Radwanska and Andy Murray, to slam glory. 2) Someone hires Chris Evert as a coach so she can stop commentating. 3) ATP sex tape, gay hooker, or PED scandal. That's all.
The long (and often inglorious) history of the royal 'spare' From the swashbuckling Henry VIII to the loose cannon Duke of Clarence who met a sorry end in a butt of Malmsey wine, the history of the royal spare isn't always a glorious one. Although modern spares are rarely required to step in and have lives far removed from their predecessors, their lot isn't always an easy one with many, Prince Harry, Prince Andrew and George VI among them, choosing to throw themselves into military careers instead. So what's in store for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's new baby girl? From Prince Harry to Richard III, there's no shortage of royal role models to follow - and in some cases, avoid. During the Middle Ages and on into the Georgian Age, spares were regarded as a crucial insurance policy at a time when children often died young and the lack of a male heir could catapult the country into turmoil. It was this that drove Henry VIII, himself a spare, to marry woman after woman in a bid to finally produce a male heir, and the reason for James II's desperation for a son following a first marriage that produced only girls. But while some spares went on to become great monarchs, others proved disastrous. The spares to remember - and forget.
I'd say this one qualifies by any standard.

The press makes him out to be this charming old man who spouts folksy little sayings, but you know he didn't make his fortune without cutting some corners, probably a lot of corners. What do we know? What do we suspect?
This is the thread where we enjoy biceps.
The stock market is at record highs, the housing market has bubbled back up, and yet no one I know is truly doing all that well income-wise. Certainly not well enough to justify all these record high prices. I'm starting to smell bullshit again like I did in 2004-2007. Am I the only one who senses something is amiss?
I did not know that Paul Anka bought the rights to a sad French song and turned it into My Way. David Bowie wanted to sing the a English translation of the sad French song ("Comme d'habitude"), but couldn't because Anka had bought the English language rights. So he stole some of the music and wrote Life on Mars instead.
I have a friend who's daughter has just completed 2 years at a community college and is now starting classes at a 4 year school. My friend wants her (in the fall) to fully experience college life by living in a dorm for at least 1 year. The kid has no friends. She dates a guy who has no drivers license (he's 21) and expects her to tote him all over the place. He can't keep a job and lives with his parents. Mom would like her away from this guy or at least meet kids and makes friends in a college environment. Money is not an issue. Any suggestions on how to persuade her to do this? Mom wants her to see there's more to life than living in a small town with no one but this boyfriend for a social life. Don't know if the kid is shy or what. Thanks for any suggestions or tips.
I went to high school with Jeff Kathrein. He is still married to Ana Sandman. They were together off and on through all of their high school years during the '90s. They graduated in '99. I don't even know if Jeff comes from a Scientology family or not, but at least one of his sisters did end up joining Sea Org for awhile. Ana was born and raised in Scientology. Her mother and stepfather worked at Delphi. Jeff was as straight as they came. He and Ana were the golden couple of Delphi. Jeff was on every varsity sports team at the Delphian School. Yes, he did theatre and choir, but he mainly did that as an activity to be with his girlfriend, as far as I know. He was certainly not what you'd call a theatre or choir geek. If anything, I'd say that he joined the choir reluctantly. He certainly wasn't one of the more exceptional singers. He played the ship captain in Anything Goes (Ana played one of Reno's Angels), and if I remember correctly, he and Ana played Lysander and Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream. I think he also played Mr. Bennett in Pride and Prejudice (Ana played Jane), if my memory is correct. After Ana and Jeff graduated Delphi in 1999, the story I heard was that they broke up when Ana joined the Sea Org. Jeff wouldn't join (he still moved down to LA, but he's originally from Nebraska). Ana ended up leaving the Sea Org because she missed Jeff. When I returned to Delphi for Alumni Weekend in 2003, I was happy to learn that John Travolta had hired them to be nannies to their children. Of course, a young, pretty Scientology couple like them would be hired by the Travoltas. But when I saw that picture of John Travolta and Jeff kissing in the National Enquirer, I was SHOCKED. I couldn't believe it, and I still can't believe it, to this day! It had to have been Photoshopped, or taken at a bad angle. From what I can tell, Jeff and Ana are living in Clearwater, FL and have their own wedding photography business. They also have two children. I don't see any evidence of them working for the Travoltas anymore. If I ever knew a pair of soul mates, it would be Jeff and Ana. They've been together since they were fourteen/fifteen! Now they're in their mid-thirties. I believe that John Travolta is gay, but I just can't believe that Jeff would put out for him! That sounds so disgusting! I can't even imagine Jeff and Ana being in foursomes with John and Kelly!
Does it ever stop? I just agreed to go on a family trip over the 4th of July. As soon as I hung up the phone I got pangs of anxiety thinking about how and sisters and mother will fight about something my mother says about their hair or weight. My mother doesn't even seem to get it. Last year I told her she was being mean because on the first day she said to one sister "It looks to me like you've gained weight." She was oblivious. Like that's mean? Really?
This is a very flattering article.

Washington (CNN) Bernie Sanders is in. The independent Vermont senator announced his run in an email to supporters and media sent just after midnight early Thursday morning. "After a year of travel, discussion and dialogue, I have decided to be a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president," he wrote in the email, highlighting economic inequality, climate change and the Citizens United Supreme Court decisions as key issues spurring him to run. Sanders first confirmed to the Associated Press in a story published Wednesday that he plans to run for the Democrats' 2016 presidential nomination. "People should not underestimate me," Sanders told The Associated Press. "I've run outside of the two-party system, defeating Democrats and Republicans, taking on big-money candidates and, you know, I think the message that has resonated in Vermont is a message that can resonate all over this country." Sanders caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate but is an unlikely candidate for the Democratic nomination, primarily because he has never been a registered member of the party and calls himself a "democratic socialist." Yet many of his views fit with the Democratic left, a constituency in which Sanders has found a small yet devout following. Sanders and his top advisers hope that group of voters will propel his dark horse candidacy. Though Hillary Clinton is the dominant frontrunner, many in the progressive left of the party think she's too moderate and are clamoring for a different candidate to support. For their part, the Democratic National Committee offered a measured welcome of Sanders to the 2016 race on Thursday. "Sanders is well-recognized for his principled leadership and has consistently stood up for middle class families," DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in the statement. "Throughout his service in the U.S. House and Senate, Bernie Sanders has clearly demonstrated his commitment to the values we all share as members of the Democratic Party." Sanders will outline his presidential plans further on Thursday when he holds a press conference in Washington. Sanders' campaign advisers said that while their candidate has announced his plans to run, he won't hold his first campaign rally until May. That event is expected to be in Vermont. Sanders is an outspoken critic of Wall Street banks and the outsized influence of money in politics and is a supporter of universal health care. He regularly talks about the need to rebuild the middle class and raise taxes on America's highest earners. "At a time of massive wealth and income inequality, we need a progressive tax system in this country which is based on ability to pay," Sanders said last month in Washington. "It is not acceptable that a number of major profitable corporations have paid zero in federal income taxes in recent years, and that millionaire hedge fund managers often enjoy an effective tax rate which is lower than the truck drivers or nurses." In interviews before his campaign announcement, Sanders said trade, income inequality and health care would be key tenants of his run. But despite having vocal liberal supporters on these issues, Sanders is a dark horse candidate and has acknowledged that his run will be uphill. A CNN/ORC poll in March found that Sanders has the support of only 3% of Democratic voters. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Sanders moved to Vermont after graduating from the University of Chicago. His first successful run for office came in 1981 when he was elected Burlington's mayor by a mere 10 votes. He was elected as Vermont's at-large member of Congress in 1990 and jumped to the Senate in 2007. Sanders is the longest-serving independent in congressional history. Sanders does not have the personality of a typical politician. He is sometimes gruff and blunt, dispensing with social niceties and usually getting right to the point. He has come to be known as much for his fly-away hair as his passionate speeches in the Senate -- and has bluntly lamented the way political journalism in the United States focuses on personality. "I think this is not about personality," Sanders told CNN earlier this year, raising his Vermonter-by-way-of-New York voice. "I am not a singer, I am not a dancer, I am not an entertainer." He also starts with a small campaign infrastructure, largely the remnants of his past Senate runs, and is primarily being advised by Tad Devine, a Democratic political consultant who worked on the presidential campaign for Al Gore in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004. At an event this month in New Hampshire where Sanders leaned heavily into a presidential bid, the signs outside the house party touted his 2012 Senate re-election bid. From the outset of his campaign, it appears money will be Sander's biggest issue. The senator has regularly conceded in the last month that he would not be able to raise near the money Clinton will bring in. "To run a credible campaign in this day and age, you do need a whole lot of money," Sanders said. "Whether the magic number is $200 million, it is $150 million, it is a lot of money, but even with that, you would be enormously outspent by the Koch Brother candidates and the other candidates who will likely spend, in the final analysis, over $1 billion, if not two." Despite being a champion for many on the left, Sanders has been somewhat left out in the cold by big liberal organizations like MoveOn.org and Democracy for America, who have spent the last few months unsuccessfully urging Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren to run for president. "Obviously one would hope one would have as much support as possible from all walks of life," Sanders said on Tuesday when asked why he thinks those groups aren't rallying around him. "I am a great fan of Elizabeth and as for what people do and why they don't do it, I am not going to speculate." Anna Galland, executive director of MoveOn.org Civic Action, even mentioned Warren in touting Sanders' jump into the race. "MoveOn members welcome Sen. Bernie Sanders to the presidential race," said Galland. "The Democratic Party is made stronger by each additional voice who enters the race and commits to being a strong advocate for everyday, hardworking Americans and not just the wealthy few. That's why we and our allies continue to call on Sen. Elizabeth Warren to also bring her tireless advocacy for middle-class and working Americans to the race. Our country will be stronger if she runs." Sanders enters a race that has so far been dominated by Clinton, the former secretary of state and Democrats' prohibitive favorite for the nomination. For most of 2015, Sanders has been reticent to attack Clinton, but he recently has issued statements calling on her to change her policy positions.

Apologies in advance, but either I'm totally missing the point or things have changed since I last worked with temp agencies. When I worked with one before, they would work to match you with a job, and you could say yes or no. I've signed up recently for temp work as a contract job I was at ended, but at three different agencies, they have set it up so it's almost exactly as if I was applying for a full time job on, like, CareerBuilder - by that, I mean, I have to go online, fill out an application, attach resume, and so on. Has anyone done this lately? Has the process changed?
The author asserts that it cannot be done. It would seem he is no fan of Gwynnie either.
I'm watching "Tootsie" right now. I love the final scene when Julie (Jessica Lange) is on a NYC sidewalk, walking away from Michael (Dustin Hoffman), then stopping to finally listen to him. When she says, "I miss Dorothy", and he replies, "She's right here", it always makes me smile. When they subsequently walk off into the proverbial sunset, it is always a feel-good moment for me. What are your favorite final scenes from movies?
Shame about the pubes, but he seems totally stoked about it

The new TV show "Constantine" premiers tonight! And unlike the Keanu Reeves movie, it looks like they're trying to get this one right! (well, except for expunging the character of his casual bisexuality). Anyone else going to be watching? I hope it's as good as I want it to be!
Who is who?

Dear PBS, I had to cut my expanded cable service and now I have only basic. I don't know if it's because I have no other choices, but I've fallen in love with PBS and now, at night, it's all I watch. Earth on Fire, Hetty Wainthropp Investigates, DCI Banks, NOVA, The Best of Lawrence Welk, Martha Stewart, Shakespeare Uncovered and, of course Downton Abbey. Seriously, it's nice to be entertained again by watching TV. Thank You

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) said Friday it will end its long-standing Labor Day telethon, aired on the ABC network, to focus on more digital fundraising efforts after the success of last year's ALS Ice Bucket challenge. The organization's annual telethon, hosted by comedian Jerry Lewis from its inception in 1956, has seen its broadcast cut from its standard 21 and a half hours, last seen during Lewis' final hosting stint in 2010, to just two hours last year. "In the last few years, the show was adjusted to reflect changes in viewership and donor patterns," MDA's president and chief executive, Steven M. Derks, said. "Last summer's Ice Bucket Challenge once again affirmed for us that today's families, donors and sponsors are looking to us for new, creative and organic ways to support our mission. The MDA aims to raise awareness and improve the lives of people suffering from muscular dystrophy, a rare muscle-wasting genetic disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and other related diseases. So far, there is no cure. The ALS Association, which funds research into ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, found a surprise fund-raising hit last year when it launched its Ice Bucket Challenge. MDA's telethon, most recently named "Show of Strength," raised $56.9 million over the 2014 Labor Day weekend.
When did he get fat again?
My lovely intel powered Imac died on me today after only 5 years. I dug out my old G5 and it fired right up and saved my skin. This is my second Intll Imac. The sure don't build them as they used to build them. Granted the new machines are beautiful and thin, but they just don't last. I'm yaking a bit prematurely, I haven't had my Imac 28" diagnosed, but from the worning signs I'd say the hard drive has bitten the dust. Just a little APPLE brag from the olden days.

Ever since Edward Snowden handed thousands of National Security Agency documents over to filmmaker Laura Poitras and writer Glenn Greenwald in a Hong Kong hotel room, the NSA’s mass surveillance of domestic phone calls and Internet traffic has been widely compared to the abuses of East Germany’s secret police, the Stasi. The communist republic may have imploded in 1989, but it has nonetheless become synonymous with a smothering, all-knowing spy apparatus. A year ago, President Obama cited East Germany as a “cautionary tale of what could happen when vast, unchecked surveillance turned citizens into informers and persecuted people for what they said in the privacy of their own homes.” He was responding to accusations that just such a vast, unchecked effort to collect data has metastasized on his watch. It was no coincidence that Poitras chose Leipzig, a city in the heart of the former East Germany, for the recent German debut of her documentary, Citizenfour, about Snowden and the NSA. “If the government is doing that kind of surveillance, it has a corrosive effect on democracy and society,” Poitras said after the premiere. “People who lived through it can tell you what it was like.”
It's Pablo Schreiber!
The Government is forcing people, at the point of a gun, to "Spring forward" this weekend, a euphemism for turning your clocks ahead an hour. Productive people are losing an hour which is being redistributed to takers so they can lay on the couch for an extra hour. Government controlled time is an abomination. Like government controlled math or reality, it is skewed towards MSNBC viewing, Chardonnay drinking, cheese eating, lady-men. This is time theft. It's not voluntary, so it is theft. The Federal Reserve is probably involved with this somehow, but the people who feed me my ideas haven't explained this to me yet. But the Fed is involved. Also International Jewery, which is practically the same thing anyway. How can intelligent people disagree?

Ah, Republicans, the party committed to protecting traditional families... unless they think you'll write them a big check, in which case they'll speak out of both sides of their mouths. And get a load of the gay hotelier! "Senator Ted Cruz has positioned himself as a strong opponent of same-sex marriage, urging pastors nationwide to preach in support of marriage as an institution between a man and a woman, which he said was “ordained by God.” But on Monday night, at a reception for him at the Manhattan apartment of two prominent gay hoteliers, the Texas senator and Republican presidential hopeful struck quite a different tone. During the gathering, according to two people present, Mr. Cruz said he would not love his daughters any differently if one of them was gay. He did not mention his opposition to same-sex marriage, saying only that marriage is an issue that should be left to the states. The dinner and “fireside chat” for about a dozen people with Mr. Cruz and his wife, Heidi, was at the Central Park South penthouse of Mati Weiderpass and Ian Reisner, longtime business partners who were once a couple and who have been pioneers in the gay hospitality industry. “Ted Cruz said, ‘If one of my daughters was gay, I would love them just as much,’” recalled Mr. Reisner, a same-sex marriage proponent who described himself as simply an attendee at Mr. Weiderpass’s event.
The man has lost his credibility. He puffed-up his resume, and that won't do. We need reputable news readers on the "main stream media" stations now, more than ever, to contrast with the lying liars on the extremist stations. Thomas Roberts can read a TelePrompTer, and seems to be smart enough to wing-it when he has to. He's also the kind of generic white guy that usually gets the top spot, though being Gay might count against him. No war experience that I know of, that's not good. He is adorable, that must count for something.
No one is going to judge you, so please be honest. Again... dual opinions on a topic or and issue. A public and a private that doesn't necessarily go together. One that you share publicly, but when you're in private you believe or do or say something totally different.
What do you do at a fondue party when your bread cube slides off the stick and lands in the cheese sauce? Are you supposed to stand there and fish it out or is it OK to just slink away and leave it?

I ain't buying his story of why he did it either. Crazy!!!!
New thread since the other one filled up
My heart bleeds. maybe it has something to do with that ridiculous hat, and allowing himself to be fondled by obese drag queens in bad wigs and open cut bras. Apparently, he wrote some movie with Cam Gigandet abut a guy whose cock is replaced by a bad comic. "I get very insulted when people like to call me a hooker, whore, prostitute, or man-whore because I don't do that stuff and I miss out on a lot of fucking money by not doing it. I routinely get offers to accompany people back home. They're called "privates," to do anything from cuddle with someone, masturbate for them, or let them blow me. The price range varies. I've been offered anywhere from $200 to $5,000, and I can't bring myself to do it." "I've been condescended to many times. I'm essentially a zoo animal and a piece of meat at work. You know, people think because they have a dollar bill they have a magic wand of some sort. Since you're there for their entertainment they can treat you how they want. It's frustrating sometimes. I try to be a good sport but when you have people hanging back taking pictures and videos secretly in dark corners it is hard. This is the thing; go-go dancing is kinda like a stripping loophole. Go-go dancers aren't afforded the same protection that strippers are. In a strip club they're very up front about no photography, no touching. Since go-go dancing primarily occurs in gay bars that aren't strip clubs, security doesn't do much to enforce that stuff. It's usually the guy with the lone dollar bill that wants the most from you. The people with money don't make a big deal about making you dance for them, or treating you like a bear with a tiny hat on a ball." "One night I had made seven dollars in two hours and it was so demeaning and humiliating, I left early, came home, and punched a fucking hole in my door. Nobody was tipping me but everyone wanted to come up to me and squeeze my dick. It's nights like those that really make me question why I'm doing this. Most nights are pretty decent, though. People are always trying to touch me and get their hands in my underwear; I've become desensitized to it. It's more about the money than that."
Since the "Grimm" and "Once upon a Time" thread is mostly a "Once..." discussion, I wanted to have a place to discuss Grimm. Any fans out there? I think it's getting better but I have a feeling it won't last long.

Do You Find Graveyards Creepy? My Mother used to take us to all the historical sights in the area: The 1600's oldest house; the Revolutionary War fort; the Whaling Seaport; [italic]and Ye Old Cemetery. [/italic]. Now, as an armature genealogist, a bit of a taphophile, I visit cemeteries all the time looking for ancestors, and it doesn't bother me. It fascinates me. I'm planning a trip to NYC where my primary goal is to seek out and photograph the family plots there (we are no longer NYers). On another thread, I see some people don't like cemeteries, Yes, I am an older fellow.
Desperate fame whore, Courtney Stodden, is finally releasing a solo sex video. Her other ploys for fame have failed.
Does anyone remember this film? One of those cultish films a lot of people really liked that seemed to go over my head. I liked the song though.
I tell you it is true!!!! (and they are mean and moody!!!!)
Putting in a new parking lot. Some of them are pretty hot. A cop came by a while ago asking me questions. Apparently my neighbor got a punch in the face by one of those hot guys. He was being friendly with them and after inviting one back to his apartment "to play video games" made a pass at the guy. The guy got pissed and punched my neighbor and left. My neighbor called the cops and reported an assault. As a gay man I'm angry that a straight guys reaction to an unwanted pass is violence, but I hate my neighbor so much that I gleefully told the cops that's he always making passes at guys and generally being very inappropriate. What makes this more delicious is that he's married to a woman and claimed the guy just randomly assaulted him. Oh to see the look on her face when she learns the truth!
For a "vacation". But she refused because he wouldn't tell her that she would not have to share a room with him. Wonder how the anti-Mia contingent will spin this?
There was a shocking, ugly moment during the argument of Obergefell v. Hodges, the same-sex marriage case, in the Supreme Court on Tuesday. Right after Mary Bonauto, the lawyer challenging marriage bans in several states, completed her argument, a spectator rose from a back row and started screaming, “If you support gay marriage, you will burn in Hell!” As the man yelled, “It’s an abomination!,” guards carried him from the courtroom. That wasn’t the ugly part, though. In the quiet moment after the man was removed, as his shouts vanished into the hallway, Justice Antonin Scalia filled the silence with a quip. “It was rather refreshing, actually,” he said. It may have been just a joke from the senior Associate Justice on the Court, but what kind of joke—or was it really a joke at all? Scalia probably did think that the directness of the protester was bracing—“refreshing.” Indeed, there’s every reason to believe that Scalia more or less shared the protester’s view of the immorality of homosexuality, and that he regards the Court’s toleration of gay people as one of the great disasters of his nearly three decades as a Justice.

How do you define an A List gay life? Are you A-List? If not, what is your opinion on A-List gays in your city/country?
I've always wondered about this. Every now and then on my porn expeditions online I come across a guy who reveals not just his face but his full identity online and then is shown engaging in some really extreme sexual behavior. For example, I saw one guy who had all kinds of gay slurs written in black marker all over his naked body. He showed his driver's license, and his real fist name. He then proceeded to have multiple men shoot their loads over his face. When it was done he looked like he had a bucket of snot dumped over his head. Now, bukkake is not that rare but when you add that this guy is getting off on the public humiliation factor then it becomes extreme. It's not just that 20 or 30 cocks have exploded on his face, it's the thought that now everyone knows who he is and what he has done. So what's the appear of public humiliation?
I'm a hiring manager at a consulting firm. We have some pretty "old school" blue collar clients who do not really like gay people. And, there's nothing we can do to change them. Overly feminine gay men are going to be a major turn-off to these kinds of clients, and might even risk the projects we have with them. Its illegal in this state to discriminate based on LGBT, but I cannot see a possible good outcome of hiring this person. The problem is that he's more qualified than the other applicants and several of our recent hires. So, he could (conceivably) figure out what is going on, though obviously any of us would deny it - and nothing would come of it. I am a female, btw, so maybe he wouldn't assume this. The standard form letter rejection is all we'd say and we don't give additional feedback. What do you think?
Figured you girls would know. How much money do you think I can fish from every lonely housewife who thinks I'm Grant Gustin? Not that I would do such a thing.
May 1, 2015 US Attorney Paul Fishman announced Friday that one former official in Chris Christie's administration had pleaded guilty to two counts in the Bridgegate scandal, and that two others had been indicted on multiple counts. Fishman alleged that the three officials conspired together to shut down access lanes so that the town of Fort Lee, New Jersey, would be paralyzed with traffic. Their motive, he alleged, was to "punish" Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich for his refusal to endorse Governor Christie's reelection. David Wildstein, a former Port Authority official, pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy — for having intentionally misapplied the agency's property, and for violating the rights of the town's residents to travel. Two other former members of the administration, Bridget Kelly (Christie's ex-deputy chief of staff) and Bill Baroni (the top operational Port Authority official appointed by Christie), were charged on multiple similar counts. The indictments also mentioned that "others" were involved. Fishman said at the press conference that it is not the department's policy to identify unindicted co-conspirators, though their involvement could come out later. The alleged motive: punishing Mayor Sokolich for not endorsing Chris Christie Since the involvement of Christie administration officials in Bridgegate broke into the news last year, there's been much speculation about their motives for creating "traffic problems in Fort Lee," as Kelly put in an email. Wildstein's guilty plea and Fishman's charges match the most common theory — that the aides were trying to get back at Mayor Mark Sokolich because he refused to endorse Gov. Chris Christie's reelection campaign. "Wildstein admitted that he, Baroni, and Kelley executed a plan to suddenly and without warning ... reduce access lanes to the bridge," Fishman said at Friday's press conference. "Baroni, Kelly, and Wildstein agreed to this plan in August 2013, when Kelly confirmed that Mayor Sokolich was not endorsing Governor Christie." That's when Kelly's infamous "time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee" email was sent, and when Wildstein responded, "got it." But, Fishman continued, "They chose not to execute the plan during mid-August, which is traditionally a light month for traffic." Instead, he said, they waited until the first day of school in Fort Lee, in September, so the impact would be greatest. [More info here]:

Now that the weather is nice I have opened the windows for some fresh air, and I can hear the kids playing two houses down. Around quitting time the father comes home and starts ragging on the kids very loudly. He verbally abuses them. Every once in a while I hear a smack followed by crying. Something is not right, and I wouldn't get involved except I can't use my deck or patio because of the noise. What should I do?
Or do you figure it's their business and avoid handling them?

My sister has a new girlfriend of a few months. The GF is a vegan pain in the ass... quasi sjw. I can't stand her. Her fun gene was spliced out. We're having lunch at our place for mother's day and I don't want to invite the gf. They don't live together. I'm reasonably sure this is not going to last so why spoil it with whatever she's being sour about? My boyfriend says it's rude but I'll probably get away with it because he's pretty sure nobody else likes this nutbar either.
A friend works at a car dealership and offered me a position. Today he called and said he didn't feel I was "a right fit" for the business. When I pressed him he said I "don't have the right look". When I asked what the fuck that meant he just hung up. I've been out of work for two years, doing whatever temp shit I could get and was looking forward to having a full time job again. I didn't relish the idea of trying to sell cars, but it was work.
FARGO—A North Dakota lawmaker who sent an explicit photo of himself to another man says the exchange being made public is retaliation for a recent vote against expanding gay rights. Rep. Randy Boehning, a 52-year-old Republican legislator from Fargo, says a Capitol employee told him a fellow lawmaker vowed to out him as gay if he continued to vote against bills granting gays legal protections against discrimination. Boehning refused to identify at this point who he believes is behind the purported political payback for his vote against Senate Bill 2279, the third such bill defeated in the past six years by North Dakota legislators. The exchange came to light when Dustin Smith, a 21-year-old Bismarck man with no known connections to the Capitol, contacted The Forum earlier this month, saying he recognized Boehning from a gay dating smartphone app called Grindr. Chatting under the user name Top Man!, Boehning sent Smith sexually suggestive messages and, in the early morning hours of March 12, an unsolicited photo of his penis, according to exchanges reviewed by The Forum. "How can you discriminate against the person you're trying to pick up?" Smith said in a recent interview. When first questioned about the messages two weeks ago, Boehning declined to comment on whether he sent the explicit photo and messages. But on Saturday he confirmed he was Top Man! and said he doesn't think sending a graphic photo of himself to a stranger is a lapse in judgment, as Grindr is an adult site where users often exchange such images. "That's what gay guys do on gay sites, don't they?" Boehning said. "That's how things happen on Grindr. It's a gay chat site. It's not the first thing you do on that site. That's what we do, exchange pics on the site." Boehning, who is not married, said there are people who know he is gay, but many of his family members and friends do not. He said Saturday he is also attracted to women and was relieved to come out because he no longer has to worry about being outed. "The 1,000-pound gorilla has been lifted," he said. "I have to confront it at some point." Boehning said before he voted against the anti-discrimination bill on April 2 a Capitol employee told him a fellow House lawmaker who supported the bill said Boehning would be targeted for retaliation if he didn't vote for it. The 12-year veteran of the House still voted against 2279. He also voted against a similar bill in 2009 and would have in 2013, had the proposal not died in the Senate before a House vote. He would not say who told him he would be targeted or name the lawmaker who is said to have mentioned it. Also, he couldn't recall the day he was informed of the alleged retaliation threat. As of Monday, Boehning said he hadn't talked to legislative leaders about the alleged threat and wouldn't identify who he thinks is involved without doing that first. Though there is no binding ethics code for North Dakota legislators, he said there could be ramifications and "this isn't something I take lightly." Smith said he stepped forward on his own after discovering Boehning's identity when he saw the legislator's photo, which was published on the front page of The Forum the day after the vote. No one with connections to the Legislature encouraged him to take that step, he said. Rep. Josh Boschee, a Fargo Democrat and the only openly gay member of the Legislature, said he did not speak with Boehning about his vote. But Boschee said lawmakers from both parties have told him a gay Republican staffer at the Capitol who had been in contact with Boehning on Grindr since his last run for office had warned Boehning "there could be consequences for the hypocrisy of [his] vote," Boschee said. Boschee would not identify the staffer, saying the man was concerned about the political fallout from his own party. Asked on Monday via email if it was a Republican staffer who warned him to change his vote, Boehning didn't address it specifically. "Well it would be interesting who it was then stay tuned I guess," he wrote. Outing closeted gay politicians who cast votes seen as anti-gay is divisive in the gay community and has many critics. But while Smith and Boschee said they regret that Boehning was forced to come out of the closet, they believe it points out an important discrepancy between Boehning's vote and his personal life. For his part, Boehning said coming out under these circumstances was both a personal relief and a political struggle. "This has been a challenge for me," Boehning said. "You don't tell everyone you're going to vote one way and then switch your vote another way—you don't have any credibility that way." Boehning, a self-employed general contractor, said he has voted against multiple attempts to extend protected-class status to include sexual orientation because he doesn't believe his south Fargo constituents support it. Also, he has problems with the bill's language, which would protect people who are "perceived" to be gay. If "perceived" was removed from the bill, he might vote in favor of it, he said. Asked whether he would be personally concerned about being discriminated against in the areas of housing, workplace or public accommodation, Boehning, who lives in a rented Fargo apartment, said landlords have the right to do as they see fit. He said many members of the Legislature find themselves allying and clashing on a variety of issues, regardless of party. "Politics makes strange bedfellows," he said.

The South Florida chapter of The Impulse Group, a non-profit that “focuses on the sexual and overall health of the gay community” by throwing swanky shindigs, stands accused of age discrimination after requiring anyone over the age of 40 to pay a $50 age tax “donation” for entry into a pool party in Miami. Related: Gay Party Group Accused Of Age Discrimination For Only Charging The Over-40 Crowd This week, the group issued a defense saying ageism “played absolutely no role” in its decision to charge anyone over 40 a fee to attend the event, then said promoters were “deeply saddened and stunned” by the amount of hatred and vitriol they received, calling attacks against them and their volunteers “unacceptable.” That’s right. The club promoters, not the people they discriminated against, are the real victims here. And shame on you for accusing them, a non-profit organization, of being ageist when all they’re trying to do is help raise awareness to HIV prevention! Unfortunately for The Impulse Group, its plan to shut people up seemed to backfire. “Why can you not adopt the simplest solution: charge all or charge no one?” one person commented in response. “You have already stated on your website and other places on this very page you are ‘funded by AHF and private donors.’ Therefore, you don’t need an over-40 surcharge.” “In the long term, you cannot alienate the community at large even if it gets you what you want for now,” another person wrote.” Later on you might need us oldies, and you will [have] lost us.” “There is no real apology, for they continue to state they did nothing wrong,” someone else commented. “Too bad, for any hope they could have had for healing this rift is over. Maybe they should have someone over 40 make the responses.” Here’s the defense in full (link)
So .. have you parked yourself in the J.C. Penny's men's room (or the I-52 truck stop, Philosophy Library 4th floor stall 3, Albuquerque airport parking garage Row 52,) wherever, and sucked every single dick you were offered for 2 (4,6,8,10+) hours, or some other anonymous romantic site and enjoyed similar or even more disgraceful behavior, and feel it's time to tell some supportive friends about it? This is the place. Go. No judgments, promise.

Anyone else tired of the news media asking candidates this question and trumpeting their responses? After all, even if you answer to the positive, that doesn't mean you support any pro-gay issues. You could attend the same-sex wedding of your child but still vote to maintain discriminatory laws in hiring, employment, housing, etc. Alternatively, it's no shocking surprise when some candidates say they would never attend when they already have an abysmal record regarding gay rights.
Turns out, he was 16. No, I didn't make a pass or come on to him, nor would I. I'm 30. Not that it matters, but I just wouldn't. This kid is future porn material, if he doesn't balloon or gets into some tragic accident. Has this happened to anyone else? Did you ever misjudge an guy's age - jailbait age? Perhaps maybe made you feel creepy afterwards?

Or are some of them modest? I ask because I've always had this image of athletes happily lathering up together in showers following games, but is it possible that some of them don't like being naked in front of others? If so, do they shower after everyone's gone, or do they wait to shower at home or at their hotel? Also, photos of group showers would not be unwelcome.

A female friend I've known since college recently told me that she and her group of suburban mothers agreed that gays having kids was wrong because it was unnatural and surrogacy exploits poor women. This was a woman who fucked every guy in college (proclaiming her feminist right to explore her sexuality), had two abortions, went on birth control, and years later, when she couldn't have a child with her husband, underwent IVF to produce twins. Is that natural? As for exploiting the poor, pretty much everything we do in this world exploits the poor--from the clothes we wear to the food we eat have low prices because someone is getting paid next to nothing to produce them. The military is filled with poor men and women who had no other options. Worst of all, aren't feminists the first to yell that abortion should be legal because a woman can choose to do what she wants with her body? Is anyone holding a gun to a surrogate's head or is she choosing too?

Decided on a Saturday to take a trip to Big Bear and booked a room here through Hotels.Com. We arrived from Torrance and pulled into the Resort in about 2 hours. We were so excited as a Family. When we got out of the car my wife says to me " why are there so many guys at the pool and no Woman." I said im not sure. Then it was clear to me when my son pointed out and said. " Dad what are those guys doing on the Balcony." They were having oral sex out on the Balcony. I about died. We were not told at the time of booking and at the time of check in of any events going on. We could defianetley see what was going on. I have nothing against gays. I feel I should have been informed so I could decide if I would like to Stay Here. When I spoke with the Manager and asked for a refund. He told me that he would give me 25 dollars back for not being able to use the Facilities. Just think everyone should know where they are staying. Sam Baca is the Manager, and he had no interest in hearing what We had to say.
(This has been discussed before, but we're posting this because oral arguments will be presented this Tuesday, April 28th.) The case being argued on Tuesday will consider the constitutionality of same-sex marriage bans in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee, and it will consider these two questions: 1) Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex? 2) Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out of state? The surprise compromise could answer "yes" to the second question but "no" to the first, meaning a state wouldn't have to grant gay marriages itself but would have to recognize those granted in other states. A couple in Georgia, for example, would have to take a trip to a state like California to get hitched, but then they'd enjoy all the rights of a married couple when they returned home. A ruling like that could appeal to Justice Kennedy, who's a fan of both states' rights and gay rights. A compromise ruling could be considered pro-states' rights because it would let states have their marriages be recognized by other states while stopping short of forcing states to grant their own gay marriages. While a compromise ruling might not sound dramatic, (UCLA Law Professor) Adam Winkler said it would still lead to "a lot of hand-wringing and the court will once again have advanced the cause of gay rights without going as far as it could."

I have to turn on closed captioning when those UK shows come on with characters speaking in those godawful northern accents. The UK is a small place, but they've got very different accents. Cornish, West Country, scouse, Geordie, North London, South London. Then you've got to add Welsh, Northern Irish and various Scottish accents. That's a lot of accents for such a small area. The US has various accents. Long Island/North Jersey, New England, Texas, southern accents, valley girl type accents, Northern accents derived from German and Scandinavian origins. Does Australia have different accents? Is there a Queensland accent? A Perth accent? An Adelaide accent?

for "They're Playing Our Song." The show was nominated for 4 Tony awards including Best Musical, Best Director, Best Actor (Robert Klein), and Best Book, but no Tony love for star Lucie Arnaz (who did, by the way, get nominated for a Drama Desk Award). Best Actress in a Musical nominees for 1979: Angela Lansbury (Sweeney Todd) - winner Tovah Feldshuh (Sarava) Dorothy Loudon (Ballroom) Alexis Smith (Platinum) I understand the Lansbury nomination and win, but the others? Sarava, Ballroom, and Platinum combined ran for fewer performances than They're Playing Our Song. Yet their female leads all got nominations over Arnaz. I don't know how a person gets over something like this.

If there is such a thing. Everyone thinks the gays are so good with fashion, but I've noticed here it's rarely mentioned except to be ridiculed for look or cost. I have never come across a thread with an interesting or engaging discussion about fashion, or designers. Having said that, I am reaching out to anyone on here with an eye for fashion to help me with completing an outfit for my 40th Birthday Day dinner at the Standard Grill here in NYC. I've bought the linked jacket already from the Kooples. I just love it. It's a one time thing, and if you can't wear it for a bday, when can you wear it? I'm thinking of a more funky formal look, black shirt, pants, burgundy bowtie and cummerbund - a downtown twist to a tuxedo. Is there anything else anyone would recommend to pair with it?
I'm Kimberly's massive head scar.
Sat May 2nd at 2AM/11 Pacific!! on TCM!!!! Not quite an essential but still!!!
Sensationalistic and bizarre: Manson murders. Patty Hearst. OJ Which others?
Because some of us like it!
Hot and slutty!
Because the last thread is just about full
I just LOVED seeing Peter Dinklage tied up with a ball gag.
how would you attract a younger audience and eventually get them to become season subscribers?
"What are the great movies for younger women where they're the protagonist [being] made now? You know what I mean? The whole thing -- there's no equal rights amendment. We're fucked," Hunt said. Video:
When you found those big, soft, terry cloth towels in the linen closet as a kid, did you put them around your neck to pretend you were a flying superhero? Was it long, luxurious hair? Or did you go Continental with a chic turban look?
I love him. Please tell me all the horrible things you know about him so this pointless reaction will pass. Nice ass in the Shameless scene, too.
I have a bread machine. I only do the dough in it and then bake in the oven. Quite a few breads I want to make call for a small amount of powdered milk. I shopped for it and see that powdered milk is very expensive. It's about 20 dollars a box with way more than I'll ever need in my lifetime and it probably does expire. My question, do I really need to use it when the recipe calls for it? Can I leave it out or use regular milk and just use less water? Of course I know I would have to bring the regular milk to a temperature that won't hurt the yeast. What purpose does powdered milk serve in some breads that regular milk can't?
Has anyone watched this? It's a reality show about a bunch of ex soap stars (Hunter Tylo, Vanessa Marcil, Donna Mills) getting together and pitching a soap. The reviews have actually been decent, but I don't get the channel it airs on (Pop) and don't know if it's worth seeking out.
What is the biggest beefiest muscle ass you have ever seen?
Most mornings last year, Terrance Wise left home before his three daughters woke up, to head to his $9.30-an-hour job at Burger King. And after working his second job of the day, as a $7.47-an-hour cook for Pizza Hut, he returned home 16 hours later, around 11 p.m., after his daughters had gone to sleep. “The kids started saying, ‘Daddy, we never get to see you,’ ” said Mr. Wise, 35. The situation worsened when Burger King cut back his hours and his feyonce was sidelined from work with a back injury. Despite his working two jobs, he and his family were evicted from their apartment, leaving them homeless for three months. On Thursday, the Fight for 15 campaign staged another wave of one-day strikes, this time in more than 150 cities. Mr. Wise was at the forefront in Kansas City, demonstrating outside McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s restaurants. “I have never seen a movement like this,” said Mr. Wise, in his crisp tenor voice. “We’ve seen how the civil rights movement won civil rights and we’ve seen how women won the right to vote. Those things weren’t given to us. People faced hoses and beatings. “Some people even died. We have to bring the same pressure for today’s times and make the companies listen to us. We have to do whatever it takes to win.” The pay for fast-food jobs was bad then and still is, he said. “What we’re asking for is realistic. We took in $1,200 the other day at lunch hour at my Burger King. The six workers there cost them $60 or so for that hour. So I see they can pay us $15,” Mr. Wise said. “My kids are living in poverty. It’s hard getting just the basic necessities, and they truly are the reason I fight,” Mr. Wise told the workers in the conference call. “It makes me angry, and you should be angry, that these billion-dollar corporations are robbing from my kids and your kids. So we’re going to have to stand up and fight back.” In September, they fought back. Mr. Wise led a sit-in outside a McDonald’s here, and 52 workers were arrested. Nearly 500 fast-food workers and supporters were arrested nationwide that day. The ones in Kansas City wore red T-shirts that read, “We Are Worth More,” and sang civil rights songs. Industry officials often call the movement a union front — indeed, the Service Employees International Union has spent more than $10 million to underwrite the movement, seeing it as a powerful lever to raise pay for low-wage workers nationwide. McDonald’s says it pays its workers competitive wages and warns that a wage increase will hurt small and medium-size restaurant businesses. Burger King says it has provided entry-level jobs for millions of workers. Brad Jones, Missouri director of the National Federation of Independent Business, a trade group, criticized the $15 fast-food wage effort. “They’re not looking at your independent pizza guy, your deli on the corner, your little bar and grill,” he said. “If these folks have to increase their wages by $5 an hour, it’s really going to be detrimental to them.” He said that if restaurants had to pay $15, they would hire far fewer young workers for entry-level jobs.
Continued salute to part one and two and all the guys who aren't shy about showing their bods at the beach.
If so, what's the point? The only place to show it off is in the change room?
They have a reputation for fun and enjoying life; cool, humane presidents; and beauty of people and landscape. Any other contenders? Can anyone say anything bad about Brazil?
Damn he's hot - had some scenes showing his pecs on the last "Grimm." Link is to an earlier performanc but shows a nice ass and body. Any stories about him?
I expect a 'coming out' announcement any day now.
RIP He was a great singer
Anyone else looking forward to his memoir, due out at the end of this month? I hadn't realize he was terminally ill these days.
I do NOT. Help.
What are your thoughts?
Reading DL I get the impression that many people here were not popular in school at all, and it seems to affect them still to this day. I was popular in school and it's difficult to put myself in the mindset of those who were not. There seems to be a lot of repressed jealousy and envy that fills unpopular people with resentment and anger. I think being popular in school gives you a lot of advantages that carry over into adulthood. Confidence, attractiveness, success and a sense of fun, which many other people don't have. At my high school reunion you could pick the popular group from a mile: confident, youthful looking, well dressed, relaxed, hot etc. Most of the rest looked frumpy and unattractive and trying way too hard. So my question is, were you popular in school? If not, how bad did you wish you were, and how did you relate to the popular kids? Did you try to befriend them, be like them etc? Ps: by POPULAR I mean being in the "in", cool group, the hot rich ones with the great lifestyles, that everyone knows and wants to be. Don't say "well I had a lot of friends so I was popular" unless you were in the "in" crowd.
It appears Keanu Reeves gave Charlize a very affectionate send-off recently. So, have we all been wrong about the boy?
A guy I follow on Instagram - who is not transitioning in any way, shape or form - posts a selfie with the caption: She thinks she's cute today! Previous captions include: Why can't I find a boyfriend? I think there's a link.
Does anyone care besides him?
Don't let the magic die! I vote for Carrie's stupid rodeo clown outfit at the Hampton's party where she met Natasha. Then she tops it off by puking in the ocean
Well, that was a great opening! Glad to have Ollie, Felicity, Roy, and Diggle back!
David Koch said at a fundraiser for the New York State Republican Party on Monday that he and his brother would support the party's eventual nominee in the general election, but that it should be Walker, the paper reported, citing two people in attendance. The Koch brothers are among the best-known conservative donors, and potential Republican candidates court their favor. The pair has said they plan to spend nearly $900 million during the 2016 campaign cycle.
Damn, if only this interview had been published in time for the Oscar voters to read it. And when did the Hollywood Reporter turn into Us Magazine?
Well, it finally happened. Some blame the trans controversy. I think rampant allergies rendered nutloaf obsolete so continuing was not an option.
Don comes up with a big idea. Roger asks Joan to help him fix a clerical error. Peggy has difficulties casting for a commercial.
For my money he still has the handsomest profile in movies. You never hear any gossip about him--why? What do we know about him?
I thought about this yesterday. There were certain live performers/performances I would have loved to have seen, but either because of money or laziness, did not have the opportunity to do so. Now I shall never see them. Mine are: Ella Fitzgerald Bobby Short--Had tickets but he died two weeks before the performance. Sarah Vaughan
I just found out about this...Besides getting all stretched out, the color changes down there and their nipples, too. Disgusting. Does the sensation fade as well?
We pay for these gym memberships not only for our health but to look good too! Have y'all seen the clothing at Modells, Reebok, or Paragon, lately? That shit is hot! Straight boys as well as the gay boys are buying it too! This thread is for showing men in HOT exercise gear! Post your pics! Comment on your likes! Rip apart your dislikes! What's too gay! Or, what's not gay enough! Let's show pics of men in HOT exercise gear!!!
Johnny Depp's career took off after 21 Jump Street. Grieco's not so much. He's now an "abstract emotionalism" (his term) painter and celebrity Scientologist fundraiser. His affected douchebag look has been perfected. Take a gander at him practicing his art with a cigarette dangling from his lips.
I never read the first three....can I pick up the narrative thread easily?
She is starting to get on my fucking nerves.
Do you like Archer’s mid-century modernist aesthetic and fascination with the bureaucratic machinations of superheroes and villains? Do you like Arrested Development’s self-referential callbacks and its obsession with how failure and dysfunction are handed down from one generation to another? And sure, I’ll go there: Do you like The Wire’s complex web of characters whose motivations and relationships are slowly teased out over season-long and even series-long arcs? Then you will probably love The Venture Bros. Written, directed, designed, edited, and largely voiced by two men, Eric “Doc” Hammer and Christopher McCulloch (aka Jackson Publick), The Venture Bros., which airs on Adult Swim, is one of the best—and certainly most original—shows on television. In four seasons produced over the course of a decade—the fifth premieres this Sunday—the series has grown from a goofy, oddly specific riff on Johnny Quest cartoons and other pulp adventure stories into an elaborate and wonderfully realized universe. The premise is complicated enough: Dr. Thaddeus “Rusty” Venture (voiced by James Urbaniak) attempts to recapture the fame and success of his world-famous super-scientist father, with his two sons Hank and Dean (the titular brothers) and their herculean body guard Brock Samson (perfectly voiced by Patrick Warburton) along for the ride. And that barely hints at the world of bizarre and hilarious characters, twisting plot lines, and superbly specific referential humor that makes the series so damn exciting. There’s the self-absorbed, butterfly-themed villain The Monarch and his Jackie Onassis-channeling 2nd-in-command/romantic interest, Dr. Girlfriend; the New Wave music enthusiast Albino and his hydrocephalic best friend, who met competing in illegal underground Quizboy competitions; the secret intelligence officer who bears a striking similarity to Hunter S. Thompson; the family of industrialists who illustrate just how messed up the Fantastic Four might have turned out; Phantom Limb, a villain with invisible appendages who vies for control of the organized villainy union, the Guild of Calamitous Intent, currently controlled by (who else) David Bowie. Actually, there’s a lot of David Bowie.
Matt Walsh, TheBlaze.com: "The former top psychiatrist at John’s Hopkins, Dr. Chapman, penned a Wall Street journal article several months ago, making it clear that “transgenders” are mentally disordered. Boldly affirming the indisputable findings of every credible biologist who’s ever existed, Dr. Chapman reported that sex change is biologically impossible, and to tell a transgender he can be 'reassigned' or 'transitioned' from one gender to the other is to 'promote and collaborate with mental illness.' "
Hold on. She has to tune her guitar and put her man-bun away.
From cute child actress to drugged-out train wreck. How did it happen?
He seems like that guy who is always saying how he likes everybody and isn't shallow when all they are is shallow. And the waving of his hands when he says "Hi, guys!!!" What is he, a Muppet? He has no point.

Our leadership keeps thinking that the answer to economic growth and ultimately job creation is more innovation, and we continue to invest billions in it. But an innovation is worthless until an entrepreneur creates a business model for it and turns that innovative idea in something customers will buy. Because we have misdiagnosed the cause and effect of economic growth, we have misdiagnosed the cause and effect of job creation. For the first time in 35 years, American business deaths now outnumber business births. Let's get one thing clear: This economy is never truly coming back unless we reverse the birth and death trends of American businesses. It is catastrophic to be dead wrong on the biggest issue of the last 50 years -- the issue of where jobs come from...when small and medium-sized businesses are dying faster than they're being born, so is free enterprise. And when free enterprise dies, America dies with it.

Once a year I have a little cold sore inside my mouth near my gums -- small red circle with a white center that HURTS, but fades after a day or two. Now I have something similar on the edge of my foreskin -- what the fuck?
I know she's the subject of many jokes around here, but she is just so fucking awesome. Anyone heard LITTLE MISS HAVANA yet? The album kicks ass. Pharell was a good idea for producer. She's a middle aged woman singing appropriate songs but with current beats. And she's a worldwide gay icon.
A politician from the Czech Republic is claiming to be the President of a brand new “independent sovereign state” in the Balkans. Vit Jedlicka, a member of the Conservative Party of Free Citizens, is the self-appointed president of “Liberland,” a 7sq km “country” (only the Vatican and Monaco are smaller) where taxes are optional and there is no military. It is situated on the banks of the Danube between Serbia and Croatia in an unclaimed no-man's land, or terra nullious territory, meaning that neither country has ever held full sovereignty over the area. Thus Jedlicka claims that his new country has been created entirely within the boundaries of international law. Czech TN news website says: "It's not entirely clear to what extent the activists are being serious, but they have turned up at the location of their 'state,' where they have raised the flag." Jedlicka, however, seems to be completely sincere about the establishment of the new country. A statement announcing the creation of Liberland read: “The objective of the founders of the new state is to build a country where honest people can prosper without being oppressed by governments making their lives unpleasant through the burden of unnecessary restrictions and taxes.” Its motto reads: “To live and let live.” Jedlicka, 31, said that if Croatia or Serbia wanted to oppose the creation of the country then he would only put up a “passive defence.” Speaking to TIME Magazine, he said: “We will move, but we will keep out claim to the country,” and added that he was still waiting for a diplomatic response from Liberland’s neighbours. He claimed that Liberland had been founded as a political stunt to attempt to garner media attention: “It started a little bit like a protest. But now it’s really turning out to be a real project with real support.” The country has apparently already received around 20,000 applications for citizenshipa. Jedlicka estimates that they will receive as many as 100,000 applications by the end of week. Some people, he says, have already made plans to relocate. The country’s website provides details of how to apply to be a citizen of Liberland, which include sending an email of introduction and an optional CV.
I just saw the DVD version of this classic and was really surprised at how the storyline went and how it ended. \ \ (possible spoilers inside)
Do you own your body? If not, who owns it? If you DO own your body, do you own your labor? If not, who owns your labor? If you use your body and labor to create something, who owns the product of your body and labor? If you own your body, and you own your labor, and you can sell these things you create, why do we need government?
She's on the latest episode of Hoarders. She has THIRTY cats. Most of them are sick. There's cat shit everywhere, the place reeks of ammonia from the piss, and they're finding dead cats everywhere. Everyone has to wear hazmat suits and use a decontamination station when they leave the house. When the hoarder psychologist first entered the house she asked Vula how long the place had been like that and she says "a couple of months." I fucking hate her HATE. HER. I hope she dies.
What is it with American directors and writers that they seem to feel the need to inject wisecracks or otherwise unwarranted little bits of so-called humor (often corny) into horror and/or thriller films? I find it very distracting and unrealistic to the point of actually ruining the movie for me. I don't find this to be prevalent in foreign films.
The "blind date" season. Could be interesting..
Well, I don't know what we did to cause Chapter Two of this thread to not open. Mr. Webmaster??? Anyway... I enjoyed that thread and I do not want to derail it at all. So, until Two reopens, if at all, let's proceed to three! It would happen anyway. Mr. Originator of that thread would you please the requirements of this thread. Thank you. Reminder: Some images are NSFW and please note--Like this first one: NSFW!
Bravo Tony Geary! Someone get this man (another) Emmy. Tears were in my eyes today after this powerful episode, one of the best ever. Bravo Ron C, you handsome genius. Bravo Frank V. Everyone did a great job. I even enjoyed the kids playing young Luke and Patricia. They handled their weighty material quite well. This remains, as always, the best show on television.
I don't know what else to say...
I vote for Rosie you-just-hurt-my-feelings O'Donnell? You know her, the one who VOLUNTEERED to be the face of celebrity mental illness? My second vote goes to - and this is a big longshot since I have never, ever seen a thread or any mention of him on him on DL - Pete Townshend. Poor me, I'm so ugly, everyone else is happier than me, I actually wrote a song called "Melancholia", Pete Townshend. Anyone else notice any especially self-pitying, mega rich celebrities?
They really showed off his perfect tight ass (unfortunately always under pants) on "Gotham" tonight. I'm always surprised he never made it bigger--he's a good actor, and he's stunningly handsome. What do we know about him?
On As The World Turns no less and in FRONT of Marisa Tomei! See link and go 2:00 into video
Gay-for-pay porn star Johnny Rapid has gone from asking Justin Bieber to have sex with him for $2 million to facing jail time for beating his girlfriend. A newly released police report reveals the 22-year-old Men.com performer, whose real name is Hylan Taylor, is being charged with battery for allegedly choking, pushing and hitting his girlfriend last year. In the report, it alleges the girlfriend refused to arrange a threesome between the couple and a 14-year-old girl on 9 October. A Rockdale County, Georgia officer writes the couple encountered a young Asian female at a bowling alley who told Taylor's girlfriend she was 18. As the conversation went on, the girl then told the couple she was actually 14. The report alleges Taylor's girlfriend refused to have a threesome with the teen, but apparently the porn star told her to finish 'hooking things up'. After refusing and walking out of the bowling alley, Taylor allegedly choked her and pushed her to the ground. He allegedly continued to hit her in the car until they got home. The deputy noted seeing red marks on the victim's neck and lips, she appeared to have redness above both eyes and blood on her right ear lobe - looking like a ring had been torn out. Taylor was arrested 15 December and transferred to Rockdale County Jail. He was released the following day on $2,500 bond. Prior to the officer writing the report, the girlfriend contacted him to 'attempt to get me to forget the whole thing, that she's lying, that she made the whole thing up.' 'I then advised her that no matter what she said I was not going to change what was going to happen; that the report would be filed in charges in reference to Battery (FV) would be brought against her boyfriend,' the officer writes. While no court date has been set, and the girlfriend is unwilling to press charges, it appears police are intending to go ahead with the case. Taylor, who has filmed numerous same-sex scenes as a top and bottom as Johnny Rapid, describes himself as Men.com's number one performer. He was featured in a documentary series, I'm A Porn Star, where he talked about being gay-for-pay. 'I’m really dominant over females. I fuck the shit out of them,' he said. 'Dominate them. I choke them… I do my porn, and then I go home to my girlfriend. I have sex with her until she bleeds.' Taylor or Men.com have yet to make a public statement about the arrest.
She refuses to press criminal charges or seek civil damages, and pretending to be a Serta Sherpa is part of her thesis. (No fair guessing whether she uses the term 'triggering' in her interview)
What is it like nowadays? (I've only seen movies from the past like Longtime Companion.)
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!
I just found this site. I love selfies and dumb sports players!
I'm just sayin'.
"Some of the people who work with which globally famous sports star really shouldn’t be talking so loudly about putting bets on when he’s coming out, should they?"
Can she make it for another year and a half? Will everything blow over, or will more shit start to hit the fan the closer we get to election day? What a fucking shame that Sanders, Biden and Warren aren't viable candidates.
WTF is wrong with these people?
How do you stand it? You want to go to Per Se, they want to go to Applebee's. Your home is tastefully decorated with clean lines, they prefer something out of Hoarders. You're farm to table, they're Walmart to table. You go to the islands for a getaway, they go on a Carnival cruise. You're Ivy, they're state school, or heaven forbid, no school at all. How do you make these relationships work?
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.

When we think of grandparents, we often envision sweet old ladies and chaps. But that's not always the reality. Were your grandparents whores, criminals or drug addicts? Did they beat yo ass and make you pick the switch?
Fuck theres a lot of chicks this season. I'll have my pinot and popcorn ready. Are we excited?
I knew that it was over when she was dragged down those stairs.
I was a big fan of Once & Again and discovered it years after the event, on DVD. Sela Ward was especially good. This has always made me curious about Sisters that she was also in. How does it compare? Is it in the same league? I'm not that keen on VERY female shows and the title make me slightly wary. I hated Gilmore Girls.
Went to sleep with _________ on my mind!
gotta love it.
SIENFELD? JESUS FUCKIN' GOD If you ever thought Hulu was only half-heartedly committed to winning the streaming TV wars, think again: the online service just slapped down “just under $1 million per episode”, securing the rights to every minute of Seinfeld ever aired. According to a report from Variety, Hulu cut a deal with Sony Pictures TV the rights to NBC’s enduring comedy, seemingly beating out competing offers from the likes of Amazon and Yahoo. An official announcement is expected on Wednesday.
SO which guy banged yolanda to produce this boy, he is hot
I loved her.
The other guys were hotter.
You may have heard of "Peak Oil". Well, Peak Phosphorus is similar. We could run out of phosphorus in as little as 50 years. Why is this important? Well, from the beginning of agriculture mankind has used human and animal feces to fertilize the earth to grow crops. In modern times knowledge of how diseases are spread as well as the need to maximize and church out crop production has made it so that phosphorus is mined for use in fertilizer. In fact, mining phosphorus is the only way to support our current production of food, let alone increase it to match population growth. And that's the problem. We are almost out of minable phosphorus. We should hit peak production at around 2030 and then it's all downhill from there. Even if we return to human and animal feces such sources don't have the concentration of phosphorus to truly maximize crop production. So, move over Global Warming. Lack of phosphorus may end up doing us in.
Fast forward this video to 1:45. This is a cute, handsome twink who is handing out personality tests and greeting people at the door of the Scientology Testing Center on Hollywood Boulevard. How old do you think he is? Is he even 18? What is his ethnicity? He's there very often! He works there. He's also occasionally a bike guard at the Scientology complex on Sunset and L. Ron Hubbard Way. Won't some kind hearted Samaritans go and try and talk some sense into him! Entice him with ice cream, Turkish delight, whatever, but let him know that there's thousands of people who've seen him on the Internet and who think he's cute and who care and want him to do something with his life besides working in the Sea Org.
[quote]The book, Kelly Preston Unscripted, will expose the truth behind the high-profile Scientology couple’s 23-year marriage, according to author Robert Randolph. What a shock! Wonder how the "church" is going to handle this one.
There, I said it! KKKristianity and I slam are the two worst religions on Earth today, and I blame them both for everything that's wrong with the world today. The sooner we throw them on the ash heap of history where they belong, the better.
"Her comeback this year has been nice, and her song "Body Party" is 1 of the biggest gay hits of the year."
We're maligned! Told that we are finished after 35! The younger gays love to make fun of us... and unfortunately, some of them will not even reach our ages. This thread features hot men 40, and older. It is intended to compliment those who are still looking good, and loving life! It is intended to inspire others who may have given up, and let them know that it isn't over, but it's up to them! It is intended for those, who are younger, to pause, and think; "Wait a minute...just maybe I would." Post your pics! Better yet, post your pics with ages, if you know them! Feel free to write your thoughts about older men, and what you think of them! LET'S DISCUSS AND SEE HOT SILVER DADDIES!!! ...and of course, this will be NSFW! I'll start with a few: Actor; David Pevsner--55 years old
The season is more than half over but I felt Season 3 warranted its own discussion. The show is begging to be cancelled. Christette, mercifully, is gone. Her passive-aggressive flower-child schtick is tedious. Chante is around but she's just collecting a check because she's a real talent who's no longer trying to slum with a bunch of old-ass, no-name b*tches on the come-up. As always, Michel'le is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Lil' Mo is still a pitbull terrier with the wackest wigs on TV. I don't get Leela James -- at all!!! The new girl is Brave from that girl group that was like Destiny's Child redux. She's pretty but you know Beyoncé had to shut all of that down, that's why we don't know who she is. I'm interested in her because she seems superficially nice but possibly extremely bitchy underneath. Stacy Francis is a crazy bitch through-and-through. Can't stand her. I would have loved to see Whitney Houston punch her in the face and snatch her weave off. Show is set to implode in 5-4-3-2...
I like Mozart, I think. Too bad he died so young, at 35. It's not that I'm a big fan of his music, he just seems so accomplished, in his area of interest. Newton also is a fav. He changed everything.
Anyone watching? It's hilarious. It's like The Big Bang Theory but better and more intelligent.
The press tour for "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" is pretty much at an end, and Robert Downey Jr. is feeling a little punchy. He walked out of an interview with Channel 4's Krishnan Guru-Murthy, later calling the journalist a "bottom-feeding muckraker." And now the actor is going all Tony Stark on indie moviemaking, while also throwing some shots back at Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. Chatting with EW, Downey Jr., who spent his comeback back years making a string of smaller movies both at the indie and studio level ("The Singing Detective," "A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints," "A Scanner Darkly," "Charlie Bartlett," "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," "Goodnight And Good Luck"), expressed he has zero desire to go off and make a tiny film, working on a shoestring budget. And he had some very harsh words about that world and being a part of a movie on that level. “...they’re exhausting and sometimes they suck and then you just go, ‘What was I thinking?’ " Downey Jr. explained about why he wouldn't sign up for an independent film. "But I’m interested in doing all different kinds of movies. Sometimes the little movies are the ones that wind up taking the most out of you because they’re like, ‘Hey, man, we’re just running a couple of days behind. Do you think you can stay through your birthday and then come back on the fourth of July. And, by the way, but, like, the crew — can you pay for the craft services? And, oh, by the way, man, when we go to Sundance, it’s like, can we just sit you in a chair and you can sell this for six days in a row so that we’ll make 180 bucks when it opens in one theater?’” he continued warming up to his subject, pretending to be an indie moviemaker. And then caps it off with his own rejoinder. “Actually, most of you are kind of inexperienced and lame,” he said. It's pretty dispiriting to hear a major, wealthy, successful Hollywood star, who is a huge part of the blockbuster machine, essentially turn his back on folks who are trying to work their way up the ranks. And it's also pretty rich coming from a guy who has no problem making mawkish Oscar bait like "The Judge." Meanwhile, you might recall that last year, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, while doing press rounds for "Birdman," railed against superhero movies, saying they were "cultural genocide." The Guardian asked Robert Downey Jr. about the comments, and as per usual, he had a quip ready in his pocket. “Look, I respect the heck out of him [and] for a man whose native tongue is Spanish to be able to put together a phrase like ‘cultural genocide’ just speaks to how bright he is,” the actor retorted.
Harry Styles isn’t bisexual. Or, at least, he doesn’t think he’s bisexual. The 19-year-old appears on the cover of the September 2013 issue of British GQ, one of five covers featuring the boys of pop group One Direction. When speaking with the magazine, Styles was asked about claims he is bisexual. Questions about the teen singer’s relationship with Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw have been circulating the rumor mill for months. Styles insisted to GQ that he and Grimshaw aren’t dating and are just friends. "Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so," Stiles said. “I’m pretty sure I’m not." The rumors do sometimes bother the British crooner, who used to date country sweetheart Taylor Swift and has most recently been linked to model Kara Rose Marshall. "Some of them are funny," he told GQ of the rumors. “Some of them are ridiculous. Some of them are annoying. I don’t want to be one of those people that complains about the rumours. I never like it when a celebrity goes on Twitter and says, ‘This isn’t true!’ It is what it is; I tend not to do that. The only time it gets really annoying is that if you get into a relationship and you get into a place where you really like someone and then things are being written in the papers that affect them and how they see you. Then it can get annoying." Grimshaw has previously defended his relationship with Styles, saying there is nothing “weird" about it. "It seems totally normal to me: a DJ being mates with a pop star," he told Now magazine back in April. “It’s not like he’s some weirdo who can’t talk. He’s really funny. When anyone meets him, it’s like, ‘Oh yeah, he’s really nice and interesting.’ And they immediately understand." Although he might not be bisexual, Styles has extended some support to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. When anti-gay, quasi-religious group Westboro Baptist Church protested outside a July 19 One Direction concert in Kansas City, Mo., Styles tweeted a simple message in retort, saying he believes in equal rights and that God loves all. Read One Direction’s full interview in the September 2013 issue of British GQ, on newsstands Aug. 1.
... Many people come on here and insinuate that Simon Halls is some kind of evil, power-hungry, ruthless Hollywood publicist and that he is widely disliked. Can we get some SPECIFIC stories that back this claim up? Not from the Matt Bomer troll but from someone who is actually in the know.
Are you an expert?
Not a serious topic. But, serious question.
I made a huge mistake of misreading the signs and thinking he was interested in me, and then letting myself fall madly in love with him. In all honesty, he wasn't someone I considered dating when I first met him initially. He's really cute though and has a personality that is quite endearing. It was actually the thought that he liked me that made me reconsider. I wouldn't have given him much thought otherwise. Well, turns out, I was wrong, but it was too late since I've actually fallen for him. The most painful part is that he met someone on his trip to Sweden 2 weeks ago. And I just found out that they had a secret rendezvous to Paris just this past weekend (probably for an all-night fuckfest) and I'm gutted. The guy he met is much more attractive and much more successful than I am. How do you guys deal? I know I should not fall in love too easily, but sometimes, it just happens. I haven't felt this way for a guy in years. We share some mutual friends and I will inevitably be bumping into him. I just want to get him out of my mind.
It appears that she is still out of work, but living a FABULOUS life regardless. LOTS of posts on her Facebook page about various foods she likes to eat, places she goes to visit, and her hottie (younger?)boyfriend, of course. I'm kinda jealous....
So Casper Andreas, best known as creating the quasi-Colton Haynes biopic "Going Down in LA-LA Land" needs help. The movie stars DL fave Gale Harold, DL fave Van Hansis and openly gay cuties from Mad Men Kit Williamson and from Buffy Tom Lenk. It's a gay murder mystery that will no doubt become a DL camp favorite so throw them some money bitches.
Physicians want Dr. Oz gone from Columbia medical faculty Associated Press, 5 minutes ago NEW YORK (AP) — Ten top physicians want Columbia University to remove celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz from his medical faculty position. They cite what they call the heart surgeon's "egregious lack of integrity" as host of a television program where he promotes weight loss products. The letter was sent this week to the dean of Columbia's Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine. Led by Dr. Henry Miller of California's Stanford University, the physicians say Oz had "misled and endangered" the public by pushing what they call "quack treatments and cures." The New York Ivy League school responded Thursday, saying Columbia "is committed to academic freedom and to upholding faculty members' freedom of expression." As vice chair of Columbia's surgery department, Oz still occasionally teaches. A show representative did not return a call for comment.
Its founder sent out this letter earlier today. Reports of rioting at Henrietta Hudson's have just started pouring in. "Dear Sisters, Amazon, Festival family, It has been my honor and privilege to produce the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival for 40 years. It has been my life’s work, my deepest commitment, my constant challenge and my most profound joy. Every single thing of value I have learned in the world I have learned in the process of being part of building this beloved community. Almost every friend and family member who I cherish I have met on that hallowed ground, and every single way I have learned to put my mind/heart/shoulder into the purpose of creating something beautiful that honors womyn has come from the sweat I earned on that Land. I am writing to tell you that the 40th Festival will be the last Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival. The spirit of this community will live on forever, the friends and family we have found on the Land are eternal. Everything we have created together will feed the inspiration for what comes next. It’s possible that I will come back with something else, or that other sisters will take the inspiration of the Michigan community and create the next expression of our Amazon culture. What is true for me is that now is the time to bring this 40-year cycle to a close, stepping out on joy at our most incredible anniversary celebration. We have known in our hearts for some years that the life cycle of the Festival was coming to a time of closure. Too often in our culture, change is met only with fear, the true cycle of life is denied to avoid the grief of loss. But change is the ultimate truth of life. Sisters – I ask you to remember that our 40 year Festival has outlived nearly all of her kin. She has served us well. I want us all to have the opportunity to experience the incredible full life cycle of our beloved Festival, consciously, with time to celebrate and yes, time to grieve. There have been struggles; there is no doubt about that. This is part of our truth, but it is not--and never has been--our defining story. The Festival has been the crucible for nearly every critical cultural and political issue the lesbian feminist community has grappled with for four decades. Those struggles have been a beautiful part of our collective strength; they have never been a weakness. For many of us this one week in the woods is the all too rare place and time where we experience validation for our female bodies, and where the female experience presides at the center of our community focus. A place to lay our burden down from the misogyny that pervades our lives from cradle to grave…a place to live in intergenerational community, and to live in harmony with Mother Earth. I know this is true for me. And I have a deep trust that each and every one of us can take what we have experienced on that Land and continue to create space that feeds our spirit, creates diverse community, honors our experience and supports our struggle as womyn making our way through the patriarchal world. Please take what you love about Michigan and use it to create something new and beautiful. It is important that each and every one of us knows she is empowered to build on what we have experienced together on the Land. Everything you feel on the Land, everything you see – is something of spirit, and love, and passion for female empowerment….for womyn’s community. The Festival’s 40 years of culture and community are a powerful seed and our communal experiences have created fertile ground to plant in. I know that we will find inspiration and vision to create our next time and space. For those of us who will be gathering for our 40th anniversary this August – let’s joyously hold up our incredible community and allow ourselves to be strong enough to consciously let go of this incarnation of her, with all the love we each hold in our beautiful hearts. Let us gather this August knowing that what we truly cherish about the Festival lives on in each of us, and more will come from this fertile ground."
Watch what happens in this thread, and why does he like Anthony Recker?
I tend to hate black socks because nearly every single brand leaves black fuzz all over my feet, until about 5-10 washes. I think they look weird with gym shoes, but I am out of touch.
Equivocation. Learned this word here on Datalounge. I love it because it describes perfectly the conversational tactics used by my narcissistic ex-boyfriend.
I don't get it. I think at times it works on women ... but when subtle. On men, just creepy. I know two guys who are older (I don't know the age, just know much older than me, maybe 70) who had face lifts. And we all know it. Do guys think we don't realize they've had surgery? And, if you do realize it, then how do you think it looks good? I don't get it. I'd like to grow old with the grey hair, wrinkles....ruggedly handsome, swarthy handsome. You know, grow into it with experience.
I go to Adam4Adam all the time and see these profiles where the guy says he is a "jock". So does this mean he runs marathons all the time or he just wishes he was a jock? What activities qualify one as being a "jock"? Like does going to the gym 7 days a week for an hour qualify as being a jock even though half of that time you are in the steam room getting blown?
Aright, so... I am not a total pig as the title suggests. I joined a new gym recently and had a free training session & evaluation with one guy. While doing cardio, I saw one of the most attractive men I've ever seen in my life (can't find him on their website ATM, sorry). Every trainer is in the $100-125 range per session, and they are all equally qualified. My past two trainers at other gyms were guys that I had no attraction towards, whatsoever...so I don't really care that much about it. This gym is expensive as hell. And, while I am paying near-rentboy prices (including the membership fees), why not have the fitness model guy? I figure that I work in a field with not-so-hot people all day, I am average looking, my BF is average looking...and we are monogamous (and I rarely even watch porn). But, this would just be for my viewing pleasure - he's obviously straight. The problem is - how can I transition from the trainer who did my evaluation...and what excuse can I give for wanting to work with the fitness model trainer without seeming like a total pig and being a dick to the guy who did my eval? The training mgr seems like a lesbian, and she was very nice...but she'll know whats up pretty easily.
This crazy old lady, Kaye, sent over $218K to some guy on the Internet. She's lost her home, etc... but still believes they will be together once he gets back from Nigeria. Her stepdaughter is also on and saying this is all a scam. Well Kaye ain't buying that. At one point she screamed, "SHUT UP! SHUT UP! You goddamned whore-faced bitch you better shut up!" Does Kaye post on DL?
What happened to her career?
A two-headed calf has been born alive on a farm in the US. The animal, named “Annabel” by farmers, was found in Baker County, Florida, on Sunday. Her two heads face in different directions and feed separately, with four eyes, two noses, two mouths and two ears. Carolyn Crews found the calf in her field and told WJXX television she has to feed her four times a day. She is unsure how long Annabel will live, saying her breathing seems laboured and she cannot stand up under the weight of the heads. “It was just like a surprise because no one has even seen anything like this around here,” Ms Crews added. “I never even dreamed of such a thing happening. It'll be something that we probably never seen in our lifetime.” Dwight Crews, the owner of the farm, said he had never seen a two-headed calf in more than 60 years of raising cattle. The odds of such an occurrence are said to be as low as one in 400 million and such animals rarely survive beyond a few days. In February, another two-headed calf was reportedly stillborn in Martinsville, Virginia, and others have been born in recent years in several US states and Morocco.
Priest revealed to be former gay porn star 2nd February 2015, 2:33 PM, Gaz Jeffries A priest in Puerto Rico is refusing to resign – after he was exposed as a former gay porn star. San Juan Pastor Jose Santiago faced an outcry after explicit videos spread online of him engaging in camsex with another man. According to the Mirror, the preacher has defended himself from calls to resign, saying that he is no longer a homosexual – and is married to a woman. He said: “In those days I was gay and participated in homosexual activities, but God touched me, God transformed me, God gave me a woman who loves me and she loves my past. “I haven’t seen any of these films in years. I don’t receive any money for them and it’s part of a life that is over. “We have all done things we regret. That part of my life was before I knew God.” In October, the Pope vowed to investigate allegations that a diocese in northern Italy includes priests who posted naked photos on gay websites. An investigation in November shed light on a “large gay scene” for priests in Ireland, with a number frequenting local gay bars. One priest, ‘Fr C’ – admitted to being in a long-term gay relationship, while another, known as ‘Fr L’, admitted to hooking up with a fellow priest after being ordained.

I have two straight friends who''ve confessed to getting oral sex from men but say they were freaked out about the idea of reciprocating or, worse, taking it up the ass.\ \ On the other hand, I have another "straight" friend who only wants to get fucked - absolutely nothing else - when he hooks up with a guy. He just loves to have his ass opened up and his girlfriend isn''t into it using toys, etc..\ \ Anyone else know similar guys?
Has anyone watched inglorious basterds? Omg, the guy's acting chops is cringe-inducing.

How'd you get so rich? Tell us about your lifestyle. What's your gender, age, and country? What's your politics?
I've only started watching, but it seems that Thomas getting laid on a regular basis might mellow him from his scheming ways? There must have been some back alley hookups that led to something back in those days, right? Someone tweeted Jessica Fellowes (Julian's niece) about this as was told: "it would be unrealistic to show T in a loving gay r/ship as that was not a reality then. Tragically." So, no happy ending for him, huh?
They reduced local government (and their city tax bills) by using volunteers to maintain the street and parks?

I just canceled my HBO service, not to mention a whole bunch of channels I don't watch. Got my cable bill knocked down by almost a hundred bucks.
They seem like oil and water. Was it just a bearding situation?

New job: Bruce Jenner 'will return to motivational speaking to make a fortune talking about his transition into a woman' Bruce told Diane Sawyer in a 20/20 special on Friday he was a woman Once his transition is done he will return to motivational speaking The 65-year-old could make tens of thousands of dollars per engagement By HEIDI PARKER FOR MAILONLINE PUBLISHED: 16:23 GMT, 30 April 2015 | UPDATED: 23:41 GMT, Bruce Jenner has already told the world that he is transitioning into a woman. Now the 65-year-old reality star wants to talk even more about the process that has involved taking hormones and undergoing numerous surgeries. On Thursday UsWeekly reported the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star will return to motivational speaking, something he did with much success in the Seventies.
Are you going? What titles are you picking up?
For some reason the Colton Haynes Tweet thread people are using says "thread closed" so I started this one. Had to post this somewhere because has anyone seen his recent quote? He put Jeff Davis ON BLAST. [quote]Haynes transition to acting was set into overdrive with a recurring role on MTV’s hit series Teen Wolf, followed by a sudden departure that went bizarrely unacknowledged. “There was a level of unprofessionalism that went down that I just wasn’t comfortable with,” he recalls. “It was tough when other parties went on ‘convention tours’ to announce false news, but I know the truth, they know the truth. It sucked. I felt like I was ripped away from this cast I had grown up with, who had become my family. I have this issue where I’m a rug. In the past, I’ve kind of nodded and said yes a lot and went about my business. I’m done being that.” So, looks like he is claiming he was more ripped away from Teen Wolf than left it willingly and the version Davis told was bullshit.

I'm watching his PBS travel show and it's absolutely hilarious. He constantly sounds like he should be a nellie choreographer in a 30s musical: "All right, on your toes, girls!" It's jawdropping to me he's a divorced heterosexual.

But 57% think businesses should not be allowed to turn away LGBTI customers on religious grounds Most Americans think the government should protect religious liberties over LGBTI rights when the two come into conflict, a new poll has found. But 57% think businesses should not be allowed to turn away LGBTI customers on religious grounds. AP-GfK polled 1,077 adults online between 23 and 27 April, just before the Supreme Court started hearing oral arguments on whether state bans on gay marriage are constitutional, On the case, 50% said the justices should rule that gay marriage must be legal nationwide, compared to 48% who said they should not. Just under half of Americans want gay marriage to be legal in their states, while just over a third are opposed. Some 56% of Americans said religious liberties were more important for the government to protect than LGBTI rights, compared 40% who said the opposite . Only a quarter of Americans said LGBTI rights were a very or extremely important issue to them personally, while half said religious liberties were a very or extremely important issue. Only 40% of American think business owners should be allowed to refuse service to gays and lesbians on religious grounds. But 52%said wedding-related businnesses should be allowed to do so, down from 57% in early February. The new poll found a distinct split between Republicans and Democrats on the issue. Two-thirds of Democrats and just under half of independents said they supported gay marriage, compared to less than three in 10 Republicans. Only 15% of conservative Republicans want gay marriage to be legalized, while 46% of moderate Republicans said they were in favor. Most Democrats opposed all anti-gay discrimination by businesses, while most Republicans thought businesses, wedding-related or otherwise, should have the right to refuse service.

I just saw her in an ad on TV and took a pic of it. Then I compared it to her "old" teeth. Looks like she has new veneers and added a bigger space between them. It's hard to tell by the pic I took, but it's quite a gap between her front teeth. Is she trying to be edgy now??
Come on Ron, Frank and GH! Very exciting that they will be televised again this year. GH leads the nominations with 28. Let's hope they can pick up all they can. Who else is excited?

ROSIE O’DONNELL wrecked her marriage when she “went nuts” in a Thanksgiving Day tantrum fueled by booze and drugs! In a blockbuster world exclusive, The National ENQUIRER can reveal the untold story of Rosie’s relationship-ending meltdown, which left terrified wife Michelle Rounds locked in a bathroom and fearing for the safety of both herself and their 2-year-old daughter. Multiple sources have confirmed the shocking incident took place last November at Rosie’s home on Casey Key – north of Sarasota, Fla. – with raging Rosie throwing a holiday tantrum in front of Michelle’s visiting relatives! The dinner disaster began when the former television host announced to several guests that she was planning to divorce Michelle. “Everyone was pretty much floored, after having been invited to Florida for the holiday,” said one insider. “At the meal, Rosie just remained stone silent. It was uncomfortable for everyone.” Finally, Michelle dared to confront Rosie about her talk of ending their marriage. A source said: “Rosie went into a rage. Her screaming was loud enough for everyone to hear.” That’s when Michelle locked herself in the bathroom, as her rampaging wife repeatedly screamed at her: “Where’s the Xanax, b---h?” Said one source: “Michelle knew the marriage was over right then and there. She loved Rosie, but she could no longer live this way. Michelle was scared stiff and spent the night sleeping on a towel, locked in the bathroom!” Meanwhile, Michelle’s embarrassed family was “mortified” by Rosie’s behavior. “She turned the place into a house of horrors!” said an insider. Rosie wasn’t finished ruining the holiday, though – she ended up crashing into one of the family members’ cars! “Rosie had been taking her usual meds and drinking wine all night. She decided she was going to spend the night in a hotel, but left while clearly in a drunken stupor,” said another insider. “Rosie eventually came back to the house, but – either on her way to the hotel, or when she returned – she hit one of the cars belonging to Michelle’s family.” The family then witnessed the same kind of savage mood swing that had characterized the comic’s second stint hosting “The View.” “In a bizarre ending, Rosie acted as if nothing had happened,” explained one insider. “She just mentioned that the whole group would be going on a boating expedition the next day, and instructed someone to make sandwiches for the trip. “Rosie said, ‘Make mine roast beef, but hold the mustard!’ That’s the last thing Michelle’s family heard from her.” They weren’t interested in hearing anything more. “In the morning, the family headed to the airport as fast as they could,” said a source.

Elvis Summers became accustomed to letting the homeless woman on his block, 'Smokie,' go through his recycling. She would stop by his Los Angeles apartment often and the two would talk. Summers - who runs a company that supplies dancers for parties - said he wished he could further help out Smokie, a mother who is 60-years-old and sleeps in a patch of dirt. That's when he heard of a a man in Oakland who had built miniature houses out of discarded materials - Summers and decided he could do the same for Smokie. So Summers got to work. He rearranged some of his finances and started buying the necessary materials. Summers did not have anywhere to actually construct the home, so he just started doing it on the street. After five days, and about $500, the miniature house was complete. Smokie, who has been living on the streets for 10 years, was then given the keys. It's the first time she's had a proper roof over her head in decade. The whole process was filmed, with a video uploaded to YouTube quickly going viral. Summers was smart enough to build the shelter on wheels so it can be easily moved around.'The local LAPD cops have been super cool, and have told me they support it – as long as we move it to a different spot every 72 hours,' he told The Good News Network. Summers added that the way people today perceive homelessness is wrong and antiquated. 'Being homeless is not a crime,' Summers said. 'The true crime is how we as human being look at and treat people that are homeless. Some people don't, but most homeless people want help and are desperate to get off the streets. Many to most are losing hope or have already lost it and are simply dying, homeless and hungry.' Due to the way Summer's story has spread, he has been inundated with people asking whether he would be able to build them a place to live as well. He has subsequently started up a Go Fund Me page and is trying to gather money together in order to help out other people. 'This "Welcome Home: A Tiny House, Huge Purpose" project is to build tiny house's for homeless Woman, Men, Children, US Veterans and Families who are homeless,' Summers wrote online. 'Human Beings, are not "bums or trash" who need a little humanity, a little help to get off the streets.' The page had already gathered over $7,400 as of Wednesday night. The aim is for $50,000 which, based on how much Summers spent on building the house for Smokie, would build 100 shelters.

When I tell my friends about certain (negative) people in my life - they always jump to saying "cut him off - you're done" ... and I've been in that mode for the last 5-10 years because I sort of agree. Who has time or energy for shitty people, right? Well, I just realized I have 3 real friends left. Yes, three. I am also seeing someone, but that doesn't really make up for having 3 friends (2 of whom are not in my city anymore - my weekends are *fabulous*). I'll give you an example of a "cut off" situation so you can see if I am going to far here: I became friends w/ a guy about 2 mos ago at a party. We hung out a little bit right after, I went to his Easter brunch & out w/ someone of his friends on st pats. (The BF is out of town a lot, so sometimes he'd come...sometimes not. It's always a group thing anyway.) Then, he would text and ask when I'm free. We'd agree to certain days/times...and then he would just not reply or send any texts on those days (happened 4 times already). Then, two days later, he'd text "how was your [day we were supposed to have plans]". Just now, he asked me why I have been "so quiet" lately - and I said "you don't really reply consistently so I don't know what to make of you." Then, I got the ultimate cliche of "Sorry - i've just been really busy". No, you just have other friends you'd rather hang out with, and I don't need to be kept on your back burner. Next! Or, am I the ass hole because he is really busy? Anyway, by now - I've done this over and over and over again with people to the point that only 3 are left. So...wtf.
The new bar opens on Friday night: [quote]As Chelsea's gay scene fades into the distance and Hell's Kitchen's blossoms, nightlife fixture Benjamin Maisani and his business partners are taking a chance on a new bar in the bustling but not quite fully gay Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. I caught up with Anderson Cooper's better half to find out why he decided to cross the river this time around, what the boys can expect from his latest venture -- the subtly named LOVEGUN -- and if it was really him I saw eating sweet potato casserole at Boston Market all those years ago.
Russell Tovey also promoted to regular.
So, let us all here in DL decide this thing once, and for all. We welcome your thoughts, opinions, and DEFINITELY your pics! Some background to give some color to our discussion: Outside of Western cultures, men's clothing commonly includes skirts and skirt-like garments; however, in North America and much of Europe, the wearing of a skirt is today usually seen as typical for females and not males, the most notable exceptions being the cassock and the kilt. People have variously attempted to promote the wearing of skirts by men in Western culture and to do away with this gender distinction, albeit with limited general success and considerable cultural resistance.
Olympian/Dancing With The Stars competitor Charlie White has a new title to add after his name: Fiance. The American ice dancer proposed to longtime girlfriend Tanith Belbin during a vacation to Hawaii, according to a post on his Instagram account. “Couldn’t ask for a more beautiful setting for the best time in our life!” he wrote. “Hashtag she said yes!!!”

[bold]"The Wire" creator on Freddie Gray, the drug war, and the decline of “real policing.”[/bold] David Simon is Baltimore’s best-known chronicler of life on the hard streets. He worked for The Baltimore Sun city desk for a dozen years, wrote “Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets” (1991) and with former homicide detective Ed Burns co-wrote “The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighborhood”1 (1997), which Simon adapted into an HBO miniseries. He is the creator, executive producer and head writer of the HBO television series “The Wire” (2002–2008). Simon is a member of The Marshall Project’s advisory board. He spoke with Bill Keller on Tuesday. "The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighborhood"1"The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighborhood" by David Simon and former Boston homicide detective Ed Burns, 1997 BK: What do people outside the city need to understand about what’s going on there — the death of Freddie Gray and the response to it? DS: I guess there's an awful lot to understand and I’m not sure I understand all of it. The part that seems systemic and connected is that the drug war — which Baltimore waged as aggressively as any American city — was transforming in terms of police/community relations, in terms of trust, particularly between the black community and the police department. Probable cause was destroyed by the drug war. It happened in stages, but even in the time that I was a police reporter, which would have been the early 80s to the early 90s, the need for police officers to address the basic rights of the people they were policing in Baltimore was minimized. It was done almost as a plan by the local government, by police commissioners and mayors, and it not only made everybody in these poor communities vulnerable to the most arbitrary behavior on the part of the police officers, it taught police officers how not to distinguish in ways that they once did. Probable cause from a Baltimore police officer has always been a tenuous thing. It’s a tenuous thing anywhere, but in Baltimore, in these high crime, heavily policed areas, it was even worse. When I came on, there were jokes about, “You know what probable cause is on Edmondson Avenue? You roll by in your radio car and the guy looks at you for two seconds too long.” Probable cause was whatever you thought you could safely lie about when you got into district court. Then at some point when cocaine hit and the city lost control of a lot of corners and the violence was ratcheted up, there was a real panic on the part of the government. And they basically decided that even that loose idea of what the Fourth Amendment was supposed to mean on a street level, even that was too much. Now all bets were off. Now you didn't even need probable cause. The city council actually passed an ordinance that declared a certain amount of real estate to be drug-free zones. They literally declared maybe a quarter to a third of inner city Baltimore off-limits to its residents, and said that if you were loitering in those areas you were subject to arrest and search. Think about that for a moment: It was a permission for the police to become truly random and arbitrary and to clear streets any way they damn well wanted.

Oh, Lawd: BALTIMORE — A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post. The prisoner, who is currently in jail, was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him. His statement is contained in an application for a search warrant, which is sealed by the court. The Post was given the document under the condition that the prisoner not be named because the person who provided it feared for the inmate’s safety. The document, written by a Baltimore police investigator, offers the first glimpse of what might have happened inside the van. It is not clear whether any additional evidence backs up the prisoner’s version, which is just one piece of a much larger probe. Gray was found unconscious in the wagon when it arrived at a police station on April 12. The 25-year-old had suffered a spinal injury and died a week later, touching off waves of protests across Baltimore, capped by a riot Monday in which hundreds of angry residents torched buildings, looted stores and pelted police officers with rocks. Police have said they do not know whether Gray was injured during the arrest or during his 30-minute ride in the van. Local police and the U.S. Justice Department both have launched investigations of Gray’s death.
I watch it relentlessly. What's your favorite show?
God, he had a hot ass. Sophia took to Twitter to express her sorrow. She went on to encourage her 1.5 million followers to appreciate and hug their friends and family. "Please tell those you love that you do," she wrote. "Right now. This very minute. And please send a kiss to the sky for my friend Dan." "There are no adequate words. Today I find myself attempting to pick up the pieces of my heart that have broken into such tiny shards, I'll likely never find them all. Today I, and so many of my loved ones, lost an incredible friend. Dan Fredinburg was one-of-a-kind. Fearless. Funny. A dancing robot who liked to ride dinosaurs and chase the sun and envision a better future for the world. His brain knew how to build it. His heart was constantly evolving to push himself to make it so. He was one of my favorite human beings on Earth. He was one of the great loves of my life. He was one of my truest friends. He was an incredible brother, a brilliant engineer, and a damn good man. I'm devastated and simultaneously so deeply grateful to have known and loved him, and to have counted him as one of my tribe. I was so looking forward to our planned download of "all the things" when he got home. I am crushed that I will never hear that story. I am crushed knowing that there are over 1,000 people in Nepal suffering this exact feeling, knowing that they too will never hear another tale about an adventure lived from someone that they love. Disasters like this are often unquantifiable, the enormity is too much to understand. Please remember that each person who is now gone was someone's Dan. Please remember that our time on this Earth is not guaranteed. Please tell those you love that you do. Right now. This very minute. And please send a kiss to the sky for my friend Dan. His energy is so big and so bright, and it's all around us, so put some love toward him today. And then hug your loved ones again. #goodbyesweetfriend #savetheice #Nepal #AdventureswithDAN"

A totally hot pig bottom/versatile slut with an ass that won't quit. Fisting, spitroasting, BDSM--you name it, he's done it. He was a bit twinkish when he started off in porn but built his body up and became a hot, hairy daddy later in his career. He was also a regular on American Bandstand in the mid '80s. Any more stories about him?
Continue your foolishness.

Dear Piers Morgan: There is no more sure way of making me reach for my remote and change channels from your show than bringing on this horrible asshole as an expert. You might as well bring on Ann Coulter or Bill O'Reilly.
They''re all so ridiculously good looking and hot. And don''t get me started on their thick, meaty bubble butts. They REALLY get my boihole all atwitter. Many of them are bi too. Most of the guys in my gym are Dominican, and I''ve slept with at least six of them in the past year. %0D\ %0D\ %0D\ I moved to Inwood last year, and they''re all around. They''re everywhere. It''s like a wet dream come to life. I never want to live anywhere else. Seriously addicted to these men. Surely there must be a 12-step program for me. Anyone else totally in awe of Dominican men?
I always have, since I was a kid. Loved when the daytime talk shows like "Donahue" and "Geraldo" would have them on. Loved when the "exercise" magazines featured male dance troupes. I almost like men wearing almost nothing than nothing at all. I love finding converted to DVD old stripper videos. Yeah, the mes are greasy and long-haired (80s) and often straight (though I don't always believe that every troupe is sooo straight and there are no gay men. Come on.) Weirdly, nowadays it seems like more and more male dancers have their dancers just in small posing straps with a full back. Makes no difference as it's still hot but anybody know why this is?
Fap vids on the way.
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...
They''re such a hot mess, they give me a good laugh. I''m in the library, and this one specimen, thugged out beyond redemption with his TIMs and the vomit-yellow hoodies they all seem to be fond of this season, approaches this one girl he knows and is just so flaming my computer screen nearly caught on fire. I mean, really, you can thug yourself out, but who do you think you''re kidding.

Male victim was attacked in bathroom at MGM Grand hotel Police were summoned to the MGM Grand after a hotel security guard walked into the bathroom and found “a Hispanic Male Adult who appeared to be attempting to have anal sex with an unresponsive White Male Adult.” During subsequent police questioning, Banegas said that he found the passed-out victim “sitting on the toilet with his shorts pulled down to his ankles.” After lifting the man off the toilet and onto the floor, Banegas said, he “saw the unconscious male’s penis and was immediately turned on so he began to masturbate while standing next to the sink.”
R54 of the Phyllis McGuire thread got me wondering about all the famous women pre-Roe vs Wade who remained childless, despite multiple marriages and expressed desire for children. Were most of them really messed up from bad/multiple abortions? Some, like Jane Russell, ended up adopting children. What other Old Hollywood/Broadway/DC insider women were rumored to have visited illegal chop shops that destroyed their reproductive systems? Well-known heiresses count, too. Spill, DL!

[quote]Syfy, Space and Temple Street Productions announced today that Hannah John-Kamen, who starred in the West End musical Viva Forever, Aaron Ashmore, who played Steve Jinks on the long-running Warehouse 13, and Luke Macfarlane, who portrayed Scotty Wandell in the popular Brothers and Sisters, have been cast as the leads in the upcoming original space adventure drama series Killjoys. [quote]From Temple Street Productions, the producers of Orphan Black, and Michelle Lovretta, the creator of Lost Girl who will serve as writer and showrunner, Killjoys follows a fun-loving, hard living trio of interplanetary bounty hunters sworn to remain impartial as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant system on the brink of a bloody, multi-planetary class war. Chris Grismer (Vampire Diaries) will direct the pilot and additional episodes. [quote]Commissioned by Space and produced by Temple Street Productions for Space and Syfy, the 10-episode, one-hour series will begin production in Toronto on August 5. Killjoys will premiere on Syfy and Space in 2015. [quote]In Killjoys, Hannah John-Kamen stars as the gorgeous, complicated, and deadly Dutch. A top-level Killjoy, she’s a much loved and charming presence in her community, with a unique gift for earning people’s trust and respect regardless of their class. Under her banter and protective flirtations, there is pain, maturity, and a deep solemnity resulting from a dark secret past. [quote]Aaron Ashmore takes on the role of John Jaqobis, a peacemaker who hates conflict. Cheerful and kind-hearted, John prefers not to fight, but his sarcastic wit has put him into the fray enough over the years to teach him how to do it well, and dirty. [quote]Luke Macfarlane stars as D’avin, a handsome, rugged, sarcastic, and incredibly loyal former soldier. He dreamed of enlisting in the military since boyhood, and his hard-won expertise in tactics, maneuvers and hand-to-hand combat make him an instant asset to the Killjoy team.

Coming soon, ANOTHER reality television show on TLC featuring a Conservative Christian (Dominionist?) family whose twelve children -- all of whose names start with the letter "J" -- sing and play instruments. The family band was featured on Season 9 of "America's Got Talent" where they made it to the quarterfinals. "19 Kids and Counting" featuring the Duggars, now this family. At least it's not Conservative little people...
My PCP recommended I begin therapy. The first therapist I went to was younger than me, green in the profession, and less professional than I would like. I dropped him after the first session. I went to another therapist today. This practice was recommended to me, but the therapist I saw was new. Again, young, inexperienced, and we didn't click. How does one find a good therapist? Getting these appointment was no small feat. I had to deal with insurance and coordinate for several weeks with the therapists. Am I being rude by eliminating them so quickly? I haven't told the therapist today that I don't wish to utilize his services. I feel kind of bad about it.
Add Jeremy Renner to the rash of holiday season break-ups -- his wife wants out of their marriage after just 10 months. According to docs filed earlier this month, Renner's wife Sonni Pacheco is seeking the split over irreconcilable differences -- but get this ... she's demanding he return her stolen passport, birth certificate and SS card. The couple just copped to their secret marriage back in September ... and every indication is the break-up will be nasty. In her divorce docs ... Pacheco says they have a prenup, but adds it should be torn up because it was based on fraud. There's no further detail about what she means by "fraud." Pacheco wants the moon ... she's asking for spousal support and physical custody of their 1-year-old daughter, Ava Berlin. She's also looking to use the Range Rover until the smoke clears, and for Renner to pony up her rent and moving expenses.
What does DL think of this French phenom?
But it's been altered. Everyone believed that ID pulled the plug. === It was pretty much agreed upon that the network’s greatest show “Disappeared” had been cancelled. A formal announcement was never made, but the cancellation was reported from those (seemingly) in the know. It made sense too. When you take a glance at the series’ original schedule pattern, you’ll see why people would think that it had been cancelled. Even IMDB labels it Disappeared 2009-2013 RIP.The final episode aired in early 2013. ”Disappeared” was sorta cancelled - the show in its original format anyway. We now find out that the show’s gone through an overhaul… ID announced this past week that it’s set to air ”Missing In Maui: A Disappeared Special”. It airs tomorrow night, Monday, May 26, 2014 @ 10PM ET. Peacock Productions, the show’s production company, has confirmed that the series is indeed returning for a new season, but it’s been revised… After five seasons of presenting missing persons cases that have already been investigated, Peacock Productions is about to launch a new season of DISAPPEARED that will delve into fresh cases. Airing on Investigation Discovery, the stories will be just as gripping as in previous seasons, but there will be a different feel to this new incarnation of the series. Our production team will be embedded with families just weeks after their loved one has gone missing and will document the raw emotion that unfolds as friends and relatives desperately try to make sense of the deeply troubling set of circumstances they suddenly face. Private Investigator Gary Micco will join the team and help families take action to try to find their missing loved one as well as explain to them the steps law enforcement is taking. The series will issue a call to action to viewers in the hopes that they can possibly provide information that could move the case forward. I’m not liking the narrator in the promo for the special that’s airing. I hope the show’s original narrator Christopher Walker, whose voice I now deem iconic, returns. Perhaps the change won’t be a total disaster. There’s a new series that the network is currently pushing, “Last Seen Alive” (premieres Sun, June 1 @ 9/8c) which is supposed to be like “Disappeared”. In fact, in one promo they even mention that it’s from the same people that brought us “Disappeared”. Here’s the show’s premise: We’ve all witnessed the national impact of an Amber Alert when a child goes missing, with police and media mounting a major operation to find them. Unfortunately, cases are rarely investigated with the same urgency when the missing person is over the age of 18 or considered a possible runaway, leaving devastated loved ones lost and alone in their search for answers. Investigation Discovery’s new series LAST SEEN ALIVE follows the emotional and action-packed journeys of 12 families-turned-detectives as they chase down leads, interview potential witnesses, and travel cross-country in the hope of reuniting with their recently missing relatives. Beginning with the moment the person was last seen alive, episodes chronicle the search efforts of a desperate family with everything to lose, aided by a skilled investigator determined to turn chase down every lead. Though the status of these investigations could change at any minute, many concluded filming with heart-warming resolutions, some with tragic endings, while others remain open and active to this day. They’re basically splitting the “Disappeared” premise into two different shows. “Last Seen Alive” sounds like a ‘sister’ series. Anyway, be prepared to scream, “Why, oh, why, did ID fuck up its best original show??!!” tomorrow night.
How much did she pay for Bill Gates to get that result? Are you brave enough to try it out?
I haven't followed it for a while, maybe I'll try again this season.
Why couldn't they cast anyone attractive? There are attractive engineers in real life too. Regardless of content, it is really hard to watch because of the ugliness and eye-bugginess of the cast. Is this how straight men feel about watching Girls?
What is the psychology (101) behind it?
The fifth installment in the legendary series of hot black guys. Let us celebrate fine ass brothas in the heart of Black History Month, and all year around!
I hear that Richard Dean Anderson is being courted to return as Dr. Jeff Weber. I would definitely like to see him reprise the role. Seriously, what are the major plot-lines that I would need to understand in order to pick-up where I left off? Does Leslie Charleson appear much as Monica? What about Stuart Damon/Alan Quartermaine? I know that Tony Geary/Luke is an occasional character. I know all about his son Lucky. Also, I know that Robin has AIDS and that her father, Robin Scorpio, died in General Hospital. I guess that the major story-line now concerns Sonny and Brenda (or has she not returned?) I know that it's a lot of ground to cover, but I have total faith in the collective memory of DL memories. Please fill me in. I also read in a current thread that Donna Mills has joined the cast. What is the story with that? And, Cheryl, SHUT UP!
The original Part Two was 3:02ed. Here's Max Emerson:
I love that look! Both to observe and to participate in....in fact whenever I am naked without socks, I feel a little naked.
Over a week now and no activity on social media (Twitter, Instragram). Do you think they are okay? I imagine Harper & Gideon in chains in a dungeon. Something is not right.
The Sequel's Sequel thread filled up. I don't think anyone has started a new thread. If so, please let me know. I that last night's episode of Looking was amazing. I primarily like Groff for his singing skills, but he's a good actor, too. I'm not having luck in the Hamilton lottery. I suppose I could just show up after a show to grab a photo with him? He seems pretty open to such things. Is that okay to do? How long after the play's end does it usually take for the actors to come out? Thanks!
Oh my God, what if he looks at your junk?! Clearly, this is the most terrifying thing a modern-day gladiator like yourself faces at your job. No. The minute chance of a split-second side eye glance from another man who may, in his private life, be naked with his boyfriend, is clearly far more stressful. Steps 1-9:
Is it wrong that I want him to have his way with me and then smack me around when he''s done?
Or just gorgeous?
Reese was one of the first stars to emerge from Sean Cody. What ever happened to him?
This question is notoriously difficult to answer. Historical estimates range from about 2 percent to 10 percent.
As a gay man, would you be able to stand sharing a place with a hot straight guy? Would you be able to put aside your attraction to him, or would it drive you crazy? For example, would you be able to withstand the site of seeing him in his underwear, smelling his manly scent wafting through the air, seeing him get out of the shower naked etc. ? Or would it be such a constant sexual distraction that it would disrupt you from being able to concentrate on your job, own life etc.?
Thursday night’s Republican Governors Association fundraiser featuring New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, the party’s 2012 presidential nominee, was initially scheduled for a private home in Newton Corner. But Christie’s status as the onetime presumptive frontrunner for the GOP 2016 presidential nomination, now ensnared in a controversy over punitive traffic re-direction complicated things. The event, intended to be a staid and intimate affair, instead rocketed into the national political limelight. The intended host, New Balance chairman Jim Davis, is a generous political benefactor, but eschews media attention, including the reporters who flocked to his home on Thursday afternoon.
My brother and I (I'm gay, he's straight) share a house together and he just informed me that we're having a "bro night" this Friday. Is this a "thing"? I've never heard of it.
I'm counting on DL to point out the differences. I've avoided getting involved with bisexual men for years - not for any issue with their own sexual orientation but because, based on my experiences, I've always felt they were different from gay men. But I met a really great guy and we're very attracted to one another. So I thought I'd break my rule and give it a go. We've had a few dates and have a lot of chemistry. I've made it clear that I'm not a bottom, that I'm versatile, that I'm gay and that I'm a grown man. I feel strongly that his sexuality shouldn't define mine in a limiting way. I've been pretty persuasive about the joys of ass play and I haven't been aggressive and have promised to take my time with him, etc. His comfort level is my highest concern. And he has a gorgeous ass. But he's a bit of a tease, a bit coy. He says things like, "If you're lucky, maybe I'll let you do this...," etc. I suppose a certain amount of negotiation is to be expected but it makes think what I've always thought about this equation - bisexual men just want to control everything. Any experience here?
The other thread is full, and we need to provide emotional support to Brandon, Cameron and Abe the only studs left whose taints are untouched by dick or dildo (at least on film). Stay strong and whatever you do don't sign up with Men.com!
Okay granted I am not from the south but is it typical for late forties and early fifties men to social friends with 20-30 somethings? Case #1 Thomas Ravenel who is 51 years old, been indicted for selling cocaine and forced to step down as state treasurer now wants to run for congress as a "Libertarian"." Episode two showed a picture of his father with a very large confederate flag draped across the steps of the state capitol. Racist much? Case #2 Whitney Sudler Smith - 41 year old "film maker" who lives with his mother. The rest of the cast seem in the late 20's to early 30's. Thomas seems to think he is quite the stud man about town....given he is handsome and rich he is also racist and vile.
He's adopted, biracial, heavily tattooed, and the most exciting QB in the NFL. Oh, and he's sizzlin' hot. Plus, he has a pet turtle that weighs 119 pounds.
I have to say... the premiere was a bit underwhelming. It seemed awfully "forced" and "contrived". I hope it's just the nature of being a pilot that has to set up so much, and that future episodes are better. I'm still in.
The pastor of a church in Milledgeville, Ga., recently changed the sign outside his church to read, "Homosexuality is a death worthy crime," according to Georgia television station WGXA. The sign caused a stir in the neighborhood, but Robert Lee, the pastor of Ten Commandments Church, defended his sign and claimed he was quoting the Bible. "Homosexuality is an abomination, and the Bible says that homosexuality is a death worthy crime," Lee told WGXA. The sign references Leviticus 20:13, which reads, "If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads." Lee told WGXA that he hoped his sign would have an impact and said he would oppose a Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage. "The institution of marriage was instituted by God and it should not be changed by people who deserve not to live," he said.
He played a greeter at Abercrombie who asked Sue to the prom. Awesome body. Actor's name is David Hull and apparently he's a dancer. Anybody know anything more?
I didn't know they saved them for me to see later! I was posting a new listing to have my pool vacuumed, and up pops a list of all my old ads -- everything from apartments I had available to rent to blowjobs I was seeking. How embarassing. Can I remove these records of my darker moments?
I adore her. Her music has meant a great deal to me. I read that she went into a coma, and a friend has requested to be made responsible for her health because Joni doesn't have any family to make decisions for her. I thought she found the daughter that she put up for adoption, and, I suspect, her grandson must be an adult by now. Does anyone know if they're estranged? Why would they not be considered family?
Oliver Wendell Holmes was right.
Gay as freakin' Christmas!!!! Why is no one talking about that?
Lord Greville Janner, long rumoured to have committed sex offences against children in a north England care home and to have been part of a Westminster pedophile network, will not face trial for the 22 charges the British police want to prosecute him over. Criminal prosecutions in England are mounted when the police submit a file of evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service, whose lawyers decide if the evidence merits the expense of the state launching trial proceedings. The head of the CPS, Alison Saunders, announced last week that Janner would not stand trial, as doctors were persuaded that he was in the advance stages of dementia and would not be able to follow trial proceedings or instruct his counsel (a criminal trial barrister). The police - and Janner's now middle -aged male victims, some of whom he is alleged to have raped when they were as young as 10- are so furious they are looking into challenging the decision legally. Janner, ironically, has spoke out in the past about how suspected Nazi war criminals should face trial even if they showed signs of dementia. the UK media have revealed this weekend that two weeks ago, Janner signed documents requesting that his membership of The House of Lords - the UK's highest law-making institution - continue. Campaigners are left wondering how Janner, who gave Michael Jackson a tour of parliament in the 90's, can not be fit to stand trial, but be fit enough to pass laws.
French Speakers can help, but I did listen to every word.

Rosie O'Donnell's marriage is beyond saving. Calling her relationship with wife Michelle Rounds "irretrievably broken," the entertainer submitted divorce papers Friday in a Manhattan court, Yahoo has confirmed. The divorce will not be contested, indicating O'Donnell and Rounds will abide by their prenup and work out an amicable settlement. News of the filing was first reported by People. There was no immediate comment from either side, but today's announcement was hardly a surprise. Just three weeks ago, O'Donnell, 52, cited the demise of her relationship as one of the reasons she was quitting The View.
Some of them are fucking hot & totally my type.
What is your coffee order? A soy cappuccino? A mug of flat white? A small skinny, vanilla latte? A half strength decaf mocha, four sugars? I'm a small double shot long black..
"In a recent interview with Harper's Bazaar UK, the Twilight actress addressed issues of gender inequality within the industry, saying, 'Hollywood is disgustingly sexist. It’s crazy. It’s so offensive it’s crazy.' She noted, 'Women inevitably have to work a little bit harder to be heard.' " Kristen honey? I'm really confused. Publicly flaunting an affair, or having an affair at all with a man you know to be married and who you know has children at home does not seem like a very "feminist" or "pro-female" thing to do. When Rupert Sanders approached you for sex and fun in the sun I bet his wife and children would have been better off if you said, "You are a father and you are married. It offends me that even want to have this affair. No, I will not have sex with you." I'm sorry that sleeping with Mr. Sanders did not result in a career boost for you but don't call Hollywood "sexist" when you were so willing to help end another woman's marriage and so willing help to break up a family. (What does that make you? A sleaze-ist?) Kristen sweetheart? Your problem is not sexism in Hollywood. Your problem is that you are a nasty, sociopathic little cunt. Go cry to your rich Hollywood producer daddy and then wipe your eyes on one of your "Twilight" paycheck stubs and then please fall down a great big, deep hole that has lots and lots of spikes at the bottom.
The image of cigar-chomping race fans no longer applies to horse racing's signature event. Slightly more than half of NBC's Derby viewers last year were women attracted to the party, the Nielsen company said. No other major TV sports event, with the exception of the Olympics, is so weighted toward female viewers, NBC said. "It's not just a two-minute race," said Rob Hyland, coordinating producer for the NBC Sports Group. "Of course, the two-minute race is extremely important, but our job is to capture the venue and the day — it's a huge celebration — as creatively and poignantly as possible."
Who's watching and what do you think. I like it so far. It's written, directed and produced by John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) not too shabby.

Prince's first official "protegee/girlfriend". Was supposed to be in "Purple Rain", but jumped ship for a lucrative Motown recording contract and starring role in "The Last Dragon" and many subsequent B-films. Very alluring in her day, but drugs took their toll on her health (during her time as Nikki Sixx's girlfriend, she and Nikki would reportedly get wasted together). She has since become a minister, and has turned her back on her former stage persona and life. She's also written an autobio called "Blame it on Vanity".
Beyonce, Solange, and Jay Z will attend a private gala in Canada next month as guests of Scientology. Guess The National Enquirer doesn't need to make up stories any more.
Let's discuss this cow. Even though she conned millions of gullible idiots, I still have a soft spot for her. I remember watching her on "Montel" as a kid.
Starts next week and I'm really excited! Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga, yeah they're good, but it's really Richard Harmon and Mike Vogel I'm looking forward to watching. From Carlton Cuse, the half of the Lost producers that DIDN'T write Prometheus.

UNION SQUARE -- More than 120 people arrested after protesters gathered in Union Square Wednesday night to demand justice in the death of Freddie Gray, the man who died while in police custody in Baltimore. The protesters then moved throughout Manhattan, shutting down several streets along the way. Protesters converged at the entrance to the Holland Tunnel, and the tunnel was shut down outbound as police blocked off the entrance for about an hour. It has now reopened to traffic. There are several groups of protesters now marching throughout Lower Manhattan, Times Square and Midtown. Earlier, an estimated 1,000 people gathered at Union Square for the rally, then marched west on East 17th Street towards Fifth Avenue. The group was on East 17th Street about halfway down the block when police took a stand and ordered protesters to get on the sidewalk. Those that refused started pushing and shoving with police officers. At least two officers were injured in the ruckus. Police with batons had to push the crowd back onto the sidewalk. Before the march, while the group was in Union Square, police handed out flyers and used loudspeakers to warn protesters that they would be arrested if they didn't stay on the sidewalk. The protesters chanted "no justice, no peace" and "hands up, don't shoot" as dozens of police officers watched. Organizers say the rally was meant to show solidarity with people in Baltimore. "The game plan is to make sure people are politicized about the issues that are happening in terms of police brutality," said one organizer. "What's happening not only in communities in Baltimore, but in Brooklyn and Harlem and across the country." Demonstrations were also held in Boston and Minneapolis Wednesday night, while in Baltimore, a group of protesters marched to City Hall to protest Gray's death, chanting "Tell the truth. Stop the lies. Freddie Gray didn't have to die." The rallies come as authorities try to maintain calm in Baltimore following the riots that rocked the city on Monday. Police also revealed that a report on the death of Gray will not be released to the public on Friday as promised. Authorities say Maryland's attorney general may file charges so the integrity of the investigation needs to be protected. State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby is expected to get investigative findings from police on Gray's death, and will then have to decide whether and how to pursue charges against the six police officers who arrested Gray.
Sorry if this was posted already...since it came out a couple weeks ago (didn't see it here). That cunt and her two douchebag friends are going to face charges on May 21. --- Common Pleas Court judge on Thursday upheld charges against three people accused of beating a gay couple in Center City last year. Judge Frank Palumbo denied defense motions to quash aggravated assault and conspiracy charges against Philip Williams, 24, of Warminster; Kevin Harrigan, 26, of Warrington; and Kathryn Knott, 24, of Southampton. A trial date has not yet been set for the trio, who remain free on bail. They are next due in court May 21. Williams, Harrigan, and Knott were walking in a group of about a dozen people the night of Sept. 11, 2014, when they encountered the two victims near 16th and Chancellor streets, police said. Some of the people in the group allegedly lobbed anti-gay slurs at the men, and a fight ensued. The brawl left both victims hospitalized, one of them with severe facial fractures, according to investigators. The case drew national attention and prompted Philadelphia City Council to pass an LGBT-inclusive municipal hate crime ordinance.

Why are they so out of fashion in the US when they're such a big deal still in Europe (and vice-versa)?
Texans, particularly Republican and staunchly conservative Texans, have been highly suspicious of the federal government since Americans elected Barack Obama as President. In fact, Texas hardly considers itself part of the United States and often floats the idea of seceding to form its own nation. Recently, reports that the United States military is planning training exercises in Texas has elicited fear among paranoid residents that the federal government is secretly planning a military takeover. Instead of ignoring the paranoid Texans, or telling them to grow up, Texas Governor Greg Abbott incited more distrust by ordering a Texas militia to keep the real U.S. military under a watchful eye to prevent any violations of the Constitution and Texans’ liberties. Abbott sent a letter instructing the Commander of the Texas State Guard, a state militia and not the real “National Guard,” to monitor the military’s movements and update the governor’s office. Abbott issued an official Tweet exacerbating Texans’ paranoia about federal tyranny that read; “I’ve ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor Jade Helm 15 to safeguard Texans’ constitutional rights, private property & civil liberties.” Jade Helm 15 is the designation of a planned training operation of about 1,200 elite forces from all four branches of the United States military conducted in seven states across the southwest with military role players standing in for hostile and less-hostile forces. Fueled by conspiracy theorists and distrust of the federal government, Texas citizens who are certain the Obama Administration, in concert with the United Nations, is planning a military takeover of Bastrop County angrily confronted a representative of the U.S. Army over the military’s upcoming Jade Helm 15 training exercise scheduled between July 15 and September 15. After six years of conservative, armed militia, and teabagger fear-mongering coupled with paranoid conspiracy theorists about an Obama takeover plot, Texans crowded into the Bastrop County Commission to badger a U.S. Army spokesman with questions worthy of certified lunatics. The packed room meant an overflow crowd had to watch and gnash their teeth from downstairs on a closed-circuit television. The questions fielded by Army spokesman, Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria, were bizarre and driven by madness leading Lastoria to assure the crowd that there would be no intelligence gathered on non-participants, no Texans’ property would be confiscated, and no psychological operations would be conducted. Participants’ suspicion of the Obama administration drove their demands to know why they had not been individually notified about the exercise; likely because they will be conducted on private property with the expressed approval of the landowners. When the Army spokesman told the crowd that most of the landowners are either Veterans or connected to the military, one participant demanded to know why Texas residents were not permitted to vote on it. Lastoria replied “I don’t understand why you would vote on private land use.” Another man stood up to ask a series of increasingly specific questions about what was going to happen to protesters who trespassed on private land to disrupt Jade Helm exercises, and whether the operations would be suspended if they were disrupted. Lastoria only replied that “I would find it bizarre that someone would violate someone else’s private property to make a personal statement.” It was really bizarre that the Texans were seriously suspicious of the recent closing of five Walmart stores in Texas that apparently incited fears the stores were being converted into detention centers for patriotic Texans, or somehow secretly linked by underground tunnels to transport large numbers of troops undetected. The patient Army spokesman Lastoria said that if the concerned Texans had done “an extra minute of research” they would have learned that each of the five stores were involved in labor disputes. Walmart is notorious for shuttering stores before giving in to workers’ organizing demands. It surprised the Army spokesman, but if he had done an extra minute of research on seriously insane conspiracy theories he would have expected the lunacy of questions about the United Nations’ part in the military exercises. Lastoria had to assure the Texans that the United Nations was not involved in the U.S. military’s operations, and he drew jeers from the crowd when he told them he was not familiar with Agenda 21. There has been no dearth of conspiracy theories relating to the Jade Helm 15 military training this summer and they run the gamut from Walmart colluding with the Department of Homeland Security to the Obama Administration enlisting assistance from ISIS in Mexico to invade and take over Texas. Apparently the fear mongering has become so virulent that some Texas Rangers (cops, not baseball players) are preparing to mobilize and ‘defend the Constitution‘ when the invasion and assault on the Constitution goes down. Instead of ignoring the noise and allowing the U.S. military to go about its business, Texas Governor Gregg Abbott waded in and ginned up the conspiracy theories and incited more suspicion of the federal government with the announcement he tasked the state militia to spy on the real military. It leads one to believe the governor is just as suspicious and conspiracy-enthralled as the lunatic crowd in Bastrop County. A less-paranoid governor would have felt no need to issue orders to what is basically a Texas tinhorn militia and trust the United States military to proceed with its planned exercise without interference. But according to Abbott, the U.S. military cannot be trusted and requires monitoring by a state militia; all so the governor can stay informed about the training schedules and facilitate communications with local law enforcement and citizens. A normal scenario would be the governor communicating directly with the military if they really felt there was an issue that warranted his involvement. But this is Texas, after all, and there is hardly anything normal about the Lone Star state including its assertion that it is special and not really part of America.
I''m reviving a thread from 2003 that I found on my computer. I''ll post the original thread.
Someone recently mentioned to me a film called "The Babadook" and told me to check it out. Having never heard a single thing about it, I rented it and was stunned. A really exceptionally good horror movie. So, it got me thinking. What other horror gems are out there that get next to no attention? Does anyone have any cool suggestions?
Continue wondering about sickly Matt C., bitchy Julianna M., and missing Nathan L. and Taye D.

I know, sounds dirty. My MRI showed this. They want to do it again, this time with dye. Hopefully it's a cyst. It's a little over a centimeter. Has anyone had one of these found (cyst or tumor)?
Who be these?

It was spring 1973 in Hollywood, I was dining alfresco with my dear friend Brett Summers and Charles Nelson Reilly. Suddenly we heard brakes squeal and a Lincoln Continental Convertible jumped the curb and nearly hit our table !! Charles screamed ! I was so startled I spilled my shrimp cocktail all over my Gucci cocktail dress I had just purchased from Broadway!! From the large car emerged a large man with a booming voice. Typically I am not attracted to men of that size however something about his size and demeanor caused a "stirring" in my erotic zone. He apologized profusely offering to buy our lunch. I did not recognize him at first, however Charles whispered to me that he was a huge TV star named William. William sat next to me and pulled himself as close to the table as he could he was wearing a smart outfit of a white Banlyon polo shirt and black sanasbelt slacks with white patent leather shoes and matching belt. His cologne was Hi-Karate and I so taken with him right away. William felt awful about the incident, he ran over the curb while trying to retrieve a baby ruth bar he had dropped earlier. He offered to make us dessert as a consolation. Brett and Charles declined , however I accepted. After moving the Lincoln off the sidewalk, we drove to Williams Hollywood place at the Coronet Apartments. Upon entering his adobe I was taken aback by the decor. Green shag carpeting and this rather odd furniture made from beer barrels ? We sat on the sofa keg and William offered me a beverage to relax, he brought me back a Martini and Rossi on the rocks and some Jenos Pizza rolls. His sansabelt slacks seemed to be straining, he excused himself and came back with black silk kimono with red silk boxer shorts. I knew that this was on a romantic adventure!! He stroked my hair and softly touched my breast, I thought I saw his manhood peaking out of the boxers It turned out to be one on the Jeno pizza rolls.

The issue is with regards to who the marriage partner may be and not the individual themselves, thus not a Charter issue. The mere fact than an individual does not want to abide by the law and/or wishes to push the boundaries of the Canadian social structure to suit their own personal needs, does not make that person an advocate of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, it simply makes them a Liberal. The biggest lie thus far from this Liberal government is not the sponsorship scandal or the gun registry boondoggle, it is the fact they are brainwashing Canadians to believe the issue of same- sex marriage is a Charter issue. Nowhere in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms does it refer to the rights of couples. The Charter is there to protect an individual person’s rights and freedoms so that they are treated the same as the next person. Same-sex marriage is not a “constitutional” issue, nor is it a human rights issue. The Charter contains no substance to either support it or deny it. For the Charter to come into play, there must be a case of discrimination with regards to who (or what individual) is permitted to marry. ANY PERSON CAN MARRY Any person is permitted to marry. It doesn’t matter whether they are black or white, handicapped or an Olympic athlete, heterosexual or homosexual. The same laws and boundaries apply to all – a single law respected and honoured by all Canadians. The issue is with regards to who the marriage partner may be and not the individual themselves, thus not a Charter issue. The mere fact than an individual does not want to abide by the law and/or wishes to push the boundaries of the Canadian social structure to suit their own personal needs, does not make that person an advocate of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, it simply makes them a Liberal. NOT A CHARTER ISSUE The issue of same-sex marriage is not, has not, and will never be a Charter issue. It is a social issue, a moral issue to be decided upon by our elected MPs, MPs elected by their constituents based on the assumption that they will represent their constituents. Not long ago, Parliament voted unanimously to protect the definition of marriage. NOT POLICY Legislating same-sex marriage is not party policy, nor was it promoted for or against during the last election. Now MPs are being bullied by a dictatorship-style agenda that will forever change the face of this nation. It now appears it was the Liberals who had the hidden agenda. Go figure. Our society and our laws stipulate the definition of marriage is the union between a man and woman. TRUTH AND A LIE I am neither religious, nor have a marriage license, but I know the difference between a truth and a lie. And the biggest lie thus far from this Liberal government is not the sponsorship scandal or the gun registry boondoggle, it is the fact they are brainwashing Canadians to believe the issue of same- sex marriage is a Charter issue. The original purpose of the Charter has been misconstrued by our courts and modified to suit this government’s agenda. Roxanne James
