Who's gonna get a Tony nomination? What's gonna close? How old is Jesse21?
For some time, I had been having problems when walking long distances, lifting heavy objects, etc and when I finally went to my general practitioner who diagnosed me with angina and then sent me to a cardiologist. The cardio doctor has scheduled me for a cardiac catheterization and briefly went over what it is, what to expect, etc. Has anyone on DL had one done? If so, how was it? Is it true that you're not under 100% but just somewhat sleepy?

Riots are breaking out in Baltimore City. Protest against Freddie Gray death is turning violent.
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.
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.

Here's a new thread for lovely Lee
I always thought that Catholicism's emphasis on Mary makes it more interesting than Protestantisn. Many people have a basic need to worship a female deity or mother figure. Catholicism found an way to meet that need in the context of an essentially patriarchal tradition,. Ayway, the Virgin Of Guadalupe was looking pretty yoni-ish to me today.
Ok I'll start... "Honey I Shrunk Your Tits"
Mo'nique claims that she now knows why the offers didn't start flooding in after her big Oscar win in 2010. The former star of The Parkers, who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as the title character's abusive, domineering mother in Precious, writes in an essay in the Feb. 27 issue of The Hollywood Reporter that director-producer Lee Daniels clued her in just a few months ago. Noting that an Oscar win "normally does" lead to "more respect, choices, money" in the business, Mo'Nique writes, "But I got a phone call from Lee Daniels...And he said to me, 'Mo'Nique, you've been blackballed.' I said, 'Why?' And he said, 'Because you didn't play the game.'" After steamrolling the competition throughout the 2009-10 awards season, Mo'Nique famously didn't campaign for her Oscar, going on to say in her acceptance speech that she was grateful to the Academy "for showing that it can be about the performance and not the politics." "I said, 'Well, what game is that?'" her THR piece continues. "He gave me no response." People who would say that she's "difficult," "tactless" or "tacky" would "probably be right," the actress writes. "That's why I have my beautiful husband because he's so full of tact. I'm just a girl from Baltimore. But being from that place, you learn not to let anybody take advantage of you." Since co-starring in Precious with Gabourey Sidibe, Lenny Kravitz and an unrecognizable Mariah Carey, the 47-year-old actress only has a few credits to her name, none of them major theatrical releases. Mo'Nique also writes that she was offered the role of Forest Whitaker's wife in Lee Daniels' The Butler, a part that ultimately went to Oprah Winfrey; a role in the Daniels-produced Fox hit Empire; and the role of Richard Pryor's grandmother [also now set to be played by Oprah] in the upcoming biopic Daniels is working on—but, she adds, "they all just went away." In response to Mo'Nique, Daniels said in a statement to THR: "Mo'Nique is a creative force to be reckoned with. Her demands through Precious were not always in line with the campaign. This soured her relationship with the Hollywood community. I consider her a friend. I have and will always think of her for parts that we can collaborate on, however the consensus among the creative teams and powers thus far were to go another way with these roles."
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.
Was this considered a good movie? I really thought it would re-launch her film career.
At the close of part four discussion had turned to Jon being in Seville and a certain Welsh lad being in Istanbul, so of course we are all wondering if they are still a couple. Who cares, let's focus on Jon shall we?
After being abruptly dumped by her longtime p.r. rep this week, Mariah Carey’s quickly moved to find a replacement — and is assembling a whole new management team ahead of what she hopes will be a career comeback. “Mariah is creating a whole new team around her,” an insider said. “New life, new relationships, new label, new management, new publicist, new residency, new, well, everything.”
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.

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.

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.
It seems that people always mention Grant and Peck whenever they talk about legends of Hollywood, and Fonda isn't discussed as much. I've been wanting to watch some of his better films, but I'm embarrassed to admit that I've only seen him in "On Golden Pond" and "Yours, Mine and Ours". Looks like he made a lot of westerns, which I'm not a big fan of. Any recommendations?

She was 95 (link is to Fox News, so I won't put it here). Is she playing "I've Got a Secret" while dying Steve's hair in heaven? Is she actually meeting all those people she impersonated so badly in "Meeting of the Minds"?
Oscar Isaac (born Oscar Isaac Hernández; January 5, 1980) is a Guatemalan-Cuban-American actor and singer. Isaac was born in Guatemala to a Guatemalan mother, Maria, and a Cuban pulmonologist father, Oscar Gonzalo Hernández. He was raised in Miami, Florida. While in Miami, he played lead guitar and sang vocals for his band "The Blinking Underdogs." He has described his evangelical Protestant upbringing as "very Christian."
What's your take? I've switched to paperless for a few things like phone (cell and landline) and cable, but have hesitated about credit cards, bank statements and the like. Is there some reason the companies who encourage you to go paperless don't offer any incentive to do so? They must certainly be saving money on printing, postage, envelopes, processing, etc.-- so why not offer a discount or some other incentive?
(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."

ABC News host Diane Sawyer seemed more surprised that former Olympic champion Bruce Jenner identified himself as a Republican than announcing he was a trans woman on Friday, the Huffington Post reported. The revelation came when Sawyer asked Jenner for his reaction to President Barack Obama identifying trans Americans during this year’s State of the Union address. “He actually was the first one to say the actual word transgender, I will certainly give him credit for that,” Jenner said of Obama. “But not to get political, I’ve just never been a big fan — I’m kind of more on the conservative side.” “Are you a Republican?” Sawyer asked. “Yeah, is that a bad thing?” Jenner replied. “I believe in the Constitution.” Sawyer, who noted during her report that 32 states lack laws protecting LGBT workers from job-related discrimination based on their gender and sexuality, then asked him if he thought it would be “an unsettling thing” for some conservatives. According to her, Jenner said neither major political party has “a monopoly on understanding.” She then asked if he would ask GOP House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to “champion” LGBT rights. “I would do that, yeah, in a heartbeat,” Jenner replied. “Why not? And I think they’d be very receptive to it.” The Log Cabin Republicans, a conservative LGBT advocacy group, released a statement supporting the former Olympic decathlon champion. “Log Cabin Republicans congratulates Bruce Jenner in the tremendous courage he demonstrated tonight, being true to himself both in terms of his personal identity as well as his political identity,” the statement read. “There is a home for you in Log Cabin Republicans — as there is for all lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender conservatives and straight allies.” ABC said in a separate tatement that, while Jenner identifies as a woman, he chose to use the pronouns “he” and “him” to refer to himself. Watch footage from the interview, as posted online on Friday, below.

I'm in a quandry, fellow Canadian travellers. Canadian to Canadian, I'm flying to Vancouver from Toronto to see my parents this summer. Normally when I fly I prefer Air Canada. It's a more professional airline and they have a better in-flight entertainment system. I love being able to watch weird little Canadian movies and NFB shorts and other unusual movies and TV shows when I'm travelling. But WestJet has a flight for at least $120 cheaper than AC, which is not insignificant. Thing is, I don't care for WJ much and their entertainment system sucks. I'm always a little surprised when their flights actually land at the correct destination. It seems like the airline is operated by Tim Hortons drinking, Stephen Harper voting yahoos. Anyway, I WOULD like to save the money so I'm thinking I'll suck it up just this once and fly WJ. I can always download movies on my iPad and watch those. Or read. Or will I regret it? The trip is three months away so there's still time for AC to drop their fares.

I saw him on Ellen and she asked him about his dating life...he stated he was single and not dating, the way he said it I got the impression that he was bi. I do remember a photo of him from a few years ago when he was still drinking and he was making out with a South American soccer player at a bar. \ I also saw his sex tape so obviously he likes women but I bet he has had a dick in his mouth as well.

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"
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...

Carly Fiorina - What Leadership Is Taking a swipe at Hillary Clinton, Carly Fiorina asks “Mrs. Clinton, name an accomplishment?" “Like Mrs. Clinton, I too have traveled the globe. Unlike Mrs. Clinton, I know that flying is an activity, not an accomplishment.” Asked about Clinton’s recent use of the phrase “unlocking potential,” Fiorina -- whose Super PAC is titled the “Unlocking Potential Project” -- suggested this isn’t the first time Clinton may have copied her. “Her book cover was remarkably similar to mine, as well,” she said. “Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but I could steal one of her lines and ask, ‘What difference does it make?’”

This Downy Woodpecker visits every winter to a feeder outside my window. He's been coming around for about 5 years. The oldest known DW reached age 11y 11m. No evidence of a lady friend. DW comes daily but usually waits until the sparrows are finished. I don't get much variety of birds visiting here. Occasionally I get Blue Jays, who are easily spooked. I had a dove nest on my window sill recently, and I had a hawk visit once. The hawk made a God-awful screeching sound. I hope he didn't eat the dove.
Sorry for the absence. I've been busy with clients and daily life. Got some big projects lined up, some traveling in store, and I am about to start collecting a lot of the witchy elements I need in my practice. I have some ant hills outside that I will be collecting for use in some of the darker work against the people that would mean me harm. My order of a dead man's finger bone came in the mail. I bought a few chicken feet at the same time. If you are in the market for a dead man's finger bone then you better buy him quick. Just a few years ago you could get them for under $10. No they are over $40 and the price will quickly rise to over a $100 as the sources are drying up. The same with skulls. You used to be able to a whole, complete skull for 2-3 hundred. Now the going rate is about a grand. The reason being is that most of the human remains were coming from China who were selling the remains found in old cemeteries that the government confiscated to use the land. Supplies are finite which is driving up the costs. Gathered my graveyard dirt last full moon. It was spooky but beautiful. There was a dog who just sat in the distance and watched me the entire time. On a lighter note, I finally found a supplier of Adam and Eve root, also called putty root. It's one of the most powerful roots used for love but it's almost endangered. If I couldn't locate a source fast I was planning a trip to Tennessee to gather some from the wild myself. So that's about it for now. I'm in a rare break in between clients. So I should be able to post for a while before having to stop again. Need something to take my mind off of the work as my last few clients have wanted hardcore stuff against their enemies. So I need a palate cleanser if you will. Ask me anything. :)
Just so you know.

“I am shaken to my bones”: Gay NYC real-estate baron apologizes for hosting Ted Cruz event Ted Cruz (Credit: AP/Nati Harnik) Facing a furious backlash from the LGBT community, the two gay New York City real estate developers who own nearly three-quarters of the real estate in Fire Island Pines and LGBT-oriented hotel The OUT NYC issued an apology over the weekend for hosting a fundraiser for arch conservative Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). David Badash at the New Civil Rights Movement reported that Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass are furiously backtracking on their support for the Tea Party favorite and 2016 presidential hopeful, calling the fundraising dinner “a terrible mistake.” “I am shaken to my bones by the e-mails, texts, postings and phone calls of the past few days,” Reisner said on Facebook Sunday night. “I made a terrible mistake. I was ignorant, naive and much too quick in accepting a request to co-host a dinner with Cruz at my home without taking the time to completely understand all of his positions on gay rights.” “I’ve spent the past 24 hours reviewing videos of Cruz’ statements on gay marriage and I am shocked and angry,” Reisner continued. “I sincerely apologize for hurting the gay community and so many of our friends, family, allies, customers and employees. I will try my best to make up for my poor judgement. Again, I am deeply sorry.” Mati Weiderpass echoed his sentiments, writing that “I came to realize that I might have nullified my past efforts and accomplishments in just one week. On the eve of this momentous legal occasion at the Supreme Court, I dedicate myself to work even harder to advance our cause that I share with the LGBT community; our community.” But those who read these statements were having none of it. Keith Gibbons wrote that it’s “inconceivable that any well-informed, aware adult in this country could not known where Ted Cruz stood issues affecting the LGBT community.” ADVERTISEMENT James Roman was even more withering, writing that “I founded the political action committee that got the Gay Rights Bill passed in New York, so that the next generation would never have to know the venom that my generation experienced from intolerant Conservatives. Then YOU come along and give a leg up to the Conservative monster who wants to dismantle our equal rights. Does all that money make you stupid, or just deaf? Sell the properties in The Pines immediately. This community is spitting you out.” But the furor isn’t limited to Facebook — the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS non-profit has already cancelled its annual even at a Weiderpass and Reisner property, as has the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus, David Badash reported. Reisner caught the attention of the national media last fall, when paramedics rushed 23-year-old Sean Verdi from the real estate tycoon’s penthouse — where the Cruz meet-and-greet was held — in an unsuccessful attempt to save his life. Investigators determined that the probable cause of death was a drug overdose, but did not believe Reisner was criminally responsible for Verdi’s demise.
I'm gonna be there for about 3-4 days this October. Any recommendations? Also, is 4 days too long?
One of the hoteliers, Mati Weiderpass, who hosted Ted Cruz, the event causing a firestorm, wrote this according to another post. He sounds unhinged. I find the use of the word "Gaystapo" particularly vulgar and inappropriate. "Not content to steal a man’s livelihood or a near-successful attempt to destroy a small business owner, the venomous Gaystapo is now sending a chilling warning to apostates by calling for the boycott of two gay hoteliers who hold the unapproved opinion of not-hating Republican Senator Ted Cruz. Nevertheless, despite Cruz’s not-at-all surprising tolerance and the hotelier’s longstanding support for gay rights (including the cause of same sex marriage), in the eyes of the Gaystapo, both gay men are guilty of stepping off the Progressive Plantation and engaging in the thoughtcrime of treating a conservative Republican like a human being. For this sin, and to no one’s surprise, an organized boycott has been launched. Dissent will not be tolerated. Conservatives like Ted Cruz believe that, like all people, gay people should be allowed to hold whatever opinions they wish. And that makes us more open-minded and tolerant than so-called progressives.'

Are there people who really want to do that? Why?
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.
Ian Reisner faces online storm after hosting outspoken gay critic Texas Senator Ted Cruz in New York Bloomberg Mon Apr 27 2015 NEW YORK — A gay hotelier and businessman who co-hosted Texas Senator Ted Cruz for a small meeting last week in New York has apologized, saying he didn’t know about Cruz’s anti-gay stance. Ian Reisner wrote a Facebook post denying Cruz and all his works, but still faced a storm of protest. “I am shaken to my bones by the e-mails, texts, postings and phone calls of the past few days,” Ian Reisner wrote. “I made a terrible mistake. I was ignorant, naive and much too quick in accepting a request to co-host a dinner with Cruz at my home without taking the time to completely understand all of his positions on gay rights. I’ve spent the past 24 hours reviewing videos of Cruz’s statements on gay marriage and I am shocked and angry. I sincerely apologize for hurting the gay community and so many of our friends, family, allies, customers and employees. I will try my best to make up for my poor judgement. Again, I am deeply sorry.” Judging by the immediate reaction on social media, Reisner did not calm the waters. Some posts suggested Reisner was slow to distance himself from Cruz. In an early statement to a reporter, Reisner seemed to be aware of his differences with Cruz. “Senator Ted Cruz and I disagree strongly on the issue of gay marriage,” he said, “but having an open dialogue with those who have differing political opinions is a part of what this country was founded on.” “Apology NOT accepted!!” wrote Charles West, a New York theatre singer. “You knew EXACTLY what you were doing and with whom you were doing it, Monsieur!” “Anyone who has heard Ted Cruz speak for one minute knows how virulently anti-gay he is!” wrote Ken Benson, a vocal consultant. “It is a source of great pride to him and hatred of gays is in his DNA. Sorry, it is impossible to believe you are THAT naive. I will never understand homophobic gays!!” “It is quite simply impossible to believe that you did not understand Cruz’s position on gay rights,” wrote Peter Pfeffer, a photographer. “You will have to come up with a better excuse than that. Nobody can be that naive or stupid.” Cruz, who is seeking the Republican nomination for next year’s presidential election, gave one of his most passionate defences of “religious liberty” on Saturday, describing businesses that were hounded because they balked at catering gay weddings. “There is a liberal fascism that is dedicated to going after believing Christians who follow the biblical tenets on marriage,” said Cruz, speaking at the Iowa Faith & Freedom gathering in suburban Des Moines.

Anthony Bourdain has become the celebrity he loved to hate
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.
He's a hot priest. What a waste.

This was a pretty famous case years ago. This teenage scumbag raped two high school girls and then fled to Europe and lived the high life with his rich parents' help. I knew people who knew him and they all said he was damn guilty. He was brought back to the US and convicted to 20 years in prison. He's out on parole right now...he served 10 years and got out on good behavior. I hated that guy. Does anyone know any new details? Has he reformed? How is he treated in town. He still lives in his rich parents' home. It makes me sick that such a pig only served 10 years.
Who is your imbecile du jour? Who is making you see red with his or her idiocy? Mine is this woman I know who used to be nice and normal until she did some sort of self-development course. She quit her job, became a self-styled "social media guru" and is spiralling out of control in front of our very eyes. She now believes in homeopathy, The Secret and Mercury in retrograde. I don't think she can pay her bills.
Continue your foolishness.
Sensationalistic and bizarre: Manson murders. Patty Hearst. OJ Which others?
I was listening to radio discussion about being a school teacher. One Call-in person mentioned being a teacher and noticing a lot of the newest ones don't last long. Caller stated that it has to do with their student loan debt being around $80,000 and that, for them, generating about $40,000 in income wasn't going to cut it. And that a number of them moved on after a couple years. For anyone caring to comment … is the idea of becoming a teacher, despite having been considered by some as "a noble profession," no longer worth it?
It looks like the old thread was deleted. Maybe it was the comments made about the building in Saudi Arabia. I want to compliment the person who chose Lake Point Tower in Chicago and the attractive photograph.

Pity the PR working on the Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour. First Robert Downey Jr walked out of a Channel 4 News interview when asked about his drug addict past - now two of the film’s stars other have been criticised for telling Digital Spy that Scarlett Johansson’s character the Black Widow is a “slut”. When asked about the character’s relationship with Bruce (the Hulk), Jeremy Renner deadpanned “she’s a slut”, prompting his co-star Chris Evans to burst out laughing and add: “I was going to say something along that line.” “She a complete whore,” Renner then added. “She’s a slut… She has a prosthetic leg anyway.” The comments have outraged fans, with many stating how disappointed they are. Tumblr user incpetion summed it up, saying: The general public, has always given Natasha [the Black Widow] a bad wrap, because she’s a female character. People constantly throw sexist remarks at her, calling her a slut for no reason, etc. The MCU (marvel comic universe) has always been a white male dominated place, with not much room for women, or POC (people of colour), and we’re really disappointed that Jeremy and Chris didn’t take this question and the interview as an opportunity to emphasise that the sexism given to black widow isn’t okay, but promoted the sexism through their own sexist actions. Watch their full remarks below

Former ‘Baywatch’ Star Accused Of Stabbing Man With Knife April 26, 2015 9:38 PM LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Jeremy Jackson Dunn, the actor who played David Hasselhoff’s son Hobie on the popular 90’s era “Baywatch,” was arrested after he was accused of stabbing an unidentified man, the LAPD says. Jackson (he doesn’t use Dunn professionally), now 34, bailed out of jail on Saturday, according to police. His bail had been set at $30,000. A police source told CBS2/KCAL9 that they were called to Good Samaritan Hospital about a stabbing victim last month. While officers took the complaint, the alleged victim said he was stabbed “by a ‘Baywatch’ star.'” Jackson appeared on “Baywatch” from 1991-1999 and some of its brief incarnations including “Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding” and the video “Baywatch: White Thunder at Glacier Bay.” Jackson has said he left the series (about two years before it was canceled) because of a drug problem. The stabbing reportedly occurred on Friday, March 24 in the 1600 block of West 7th Street in the Ramparts section of Los Angeles. The victim said he was fighting with the actor when Jackson allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the stomach, forearm and tricep. Police did not say what the two men were allegedly fighting about. Saturday, around 7 a.m., police said they responded to a possible burglary call in the same area. Officers said they saw a man running from the scene and detained him. The officers on the burglary call also worked the stabbing complaint and believed the man they detained matched the description of the stabbing suspect. The alleged victim remains hospitalized in stable condition. In recent years, Jackson has admitted to having had a serious drug problem (steroids, meth) including a stint on “Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab.” In 2009, he starred on VH-1’s “Confessions of a Teen Idol,” with other former poster boys like Chris Atkins of “The Blue Lagoon”, Eric Nies (“The Real World”), Billy Hufsey (“Fame”) about grappling with the vagaries of fame. Last year, he reportedly got into a bloody fight with Paris Hilton’s brother at her Malibu house during a party. Jackson claimed he was hit in the face with a vodka bottle. He was also thrown off the British version of “Big Brother” in Jan. 2015 (after only four days) after allegedly exposing the breast of a fellow housemate while she was throwing up in the toilet. On his Facebook page, Jackson lists himself as “Entertainer, Host, Public Speaker, 2013 4X Jiu Jitsu Champ, Celebrity Personal Trainer, Physique Transformation Specialist, Life Coach +SillyCacapoopohead”

I'm worried and extremely frustrated. My ex, who I'm still very close to, has been sick for close to a week. His immune system is compromised anyway from HIV and he's had a recent breakout of KS. He's been complaining of extreme pain in his head and neck. It could be related to some dental issues he had with infected teeth, but I'm not sure. He has a slight fever. I've begged him to let me take him to urgent care, but he refuses and gets really mad at me when I keep trying. I mean really mad. He tells me that he'll call his Dr. tomorrow, but we'll see. I brought him over to my house to feed and watch over him. I'm also giving him Amoxicillin to help with any infection. His birthday is today, too, poor guy. But why would he get so fucking angry with me for being on his case about seeing a doctor?

I returned home for a visit this past weekend. While I was there I heard rumors about my little sister who is still in high school. Apparently she has something of a reputation. So I mention it to her and she's pretty nonchalant about the whole thing and says that she hooks up but only does anal and oral. That she is technically still a virgin because she doesn't let guys into her vagina. So I tell her that it doesn't work that way. Then she gets all bitchy with me. And says that I hook up with a bunch of guys, so I have no room to talk. Should I clue my parents in to her behavior. I just don't think this will end well. Any advice would be appreciated.

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?
She really did get a raw deal. Dan (Fuckhead) was a bastard and Linda (The Cunt) was a slut.

I have semi-trellises to start them on, as well as a hillside and plenty of room for them to grown downhill. I need some advice on how best to encourage growth. I bought a blueberry bush. Any ideas on how to keep it going? What's the best way to fertilize the grapes and the blueberry bush?

We all know about "gay" creative professions like fashion, interior design, acting that typically attracts a disproportionately high amount of gay men in the field. But on the flip side of that coin, do mostly-male-only-oriented careers disproportionately attract a different type of gay man (truck-driving/military/firefighter/policeman). Jobs where there is little to no contact with females or female coworkers? Truck-drivers seem especially gay. These burly guys seem to love glory-holes in bathrooms and hooking up at rest-stops across the US. Are a lot of truck drivers gay?

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.

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.

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?

She did some research on her own and went straight to Quebec. NO ONE has done that in the series - everyone did the stupid "let's check out ancestry.com" website. Fucking LOVE THAT. You know she purposefully did that because of the Mormon church and their Prop 8 support. Good for her. Still had ancestry.com commercials though.

The interview was startling in that Jenner reinforces the arguments of skeptics of transsexualism such as Bailey and Blanchard.

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.
I'm one of the gays that also love watching straight pron because of the guys.

After being queried on politics and drugs, film star smiles and waves goodbye to UK Channel 4’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy: ‘It’s getting a little Diane Sawyer in here’ Promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron, the actor took exception to Guru-Murthy asking him about an interview he gave to the New York Times in 2008, in which he said: “You can’t go from a $2,000-a-night suite at La Mirage to a penitentiary and really understand it and come out a liberal.” In a testy exchange, Downey Jr said that he couldn’t remember what he meant: “Things that you said in an interview seven years ago, I could pick that apart for two hours and be no closer to the truth than I’d be giving you some half-assed answer right now. I couldn’t even really tell you what a liberal is.” When Guru-Murthy pressed the point, Downey Jr responded: “Are we promoting a movie?” Saying that he wasn’t a liberal, Republican or Democrat, the actor added: “I was talking to the person who was doing the interview that day, and that just happened to be my opinion. That’s the nice thing, you can have opinions and they kind of change and flow.” The atmospheric temperature plunged further when Guru-Murthy said that as well as the film, he would like to ask some more personal questions. Downey Jr retorted: “You have as much time as anyone else will.” Glaring at a fumbling Guru-Murthy, he added: “Your foot’s starting to jump – you’d better get to your next question.” As Guru-Murthy said that Downey Jr had spoken before about his relationship with his father, drinking and taking drugs, the actor shook his head and said: “I’m sorry, I really don’t … what are we doing?” Guru-Murthy replied: “I’m just asking questions,” at which point Downey Jr smiled, got up and waved goodbye.

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.
A friend of mine showed me the following message on urban dictionary [quote]" The idea that we can live alongside people from other cultures and accept them as they are (unrealistic expectations, completely disrespectful to the host country, defeating the purpose of emigrating from your home country), as opposed to excluding minorities or forcing them to assimilate into clones of us (which is what every sane country that DOESN'T suffer from ethnic violence does) . Currently, it seems to have replaced the antiquated idea of the melting pot (also a stupid idea that no one ever took seriously) . It leads to more knowledge of and respect for other languages and cultures ( in the same way that forcing kids to study subjects they're not interested in teaches them to appreciate school, amirite?). Sensible person: Multiculturalism just doesn't make sense, the entire world is full of ethnic strife and violent cultural rivalries that can't be contained by the largest oceans and most vast continents. Wouldn't throwing all of these groups into one country just mimic the global situation on a domestic scale? Fucking idiot: you be a racisss 'n shit " [/quote] Isn't this considered hate speech? Shouldn't it be removed?
DALLAS, Tex. — Hooters, Twin Peaks, Bikini’s, Tallywackers. Wait, Tally what? Breastraunts look out, there’s a new spot coming to Dallas, and it caters to a different clientele. KDAF reports that according to their colorful Craigslist ad, Tallywackers is now hiring an all-male staff for their grand opening next month. We’re not sure if they’ll plan to serve up hot dogs and cocktails, but the whole idea has the town talking. Besides the raunchy Facebook pics of shirtless guys in Calvin Klein undies, we did notice that Tallywackers will replace the old Lolitas Mexican Restaurant on Lemmon Avenue. Yeah, that’s smack dab in the middle of what locals call the “gayborhood.” Pays to know your customers, right? So, if you’ve ever had an appetite for half-naked men in red aprons, order up!
I feel kind of sorry for him. He says he is not gay but as a woman only likes women. Huh? Did anyone see the interview with Diane Sawyer?
WASHINGTON -- Progressive Democrats have been hoping to see a showdown between Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton for years. Instead, they're getting a public feud between the senator from Massachusetts and President Barack Obama. Obama accused Warren and congressional Democrats on Friday of being "dishonest" and spreading "misinformation" about the Trans-Pacific Partnership -- a trade pact the administration is negotiating among 12 nations. The overwhelming majority of Democrats in Congress oppose TPP, while Republican leaders support it. It was an unusually aggressive attack for the president -- accusing members of his own party not of having misplaced priorities, but of actively working to deceive the public. Obama is rarely so severe even with his Republican opponents. Obama said that the Democratic criticism that "gets on [his] nerves the most" is the notion that his TPP pact is "secret," and went on to insist that the terms of TPP will help American workers. On Saturday, Warren and Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) responded with a letter essentially telling Obama to put up or shut up. If the deal is so great, Warren and Brown wrote, the administration should make the full negotiation texts public before Congress votes on a "fast track" bill that would strip the legislative branch of its authority to amend it. "Members of Congress should be able to discuss the agreement with our constituents and to participate in a robust public debate, instead of being muzzled by classification rules," Warren and Brown wrote in the letter obtained by The Huffington Post. Democrats and some Republican critics have been particularly frustrated by Obama's decision to treat the TPP documents as classified information, which prevents them from responding to Obama's claims about the pact in detail. "Your Administration has deemed the draft text of the agreement classified and kept it hidden from public view, thereby making it a secret deal," the letter reads. "It is currently illegal for the press, experts, advocates, or the general public to review the text of this agreement. And while you noted that Members of Congress may 'walk over ... and read the text of the agreement' -- as we have done -- you neglected to mention that we are prohibited by law from discussing the specifics of that text in public." Warren and Brown appeared particularly miffed at being accused of lying. "We respectfully suggest that characterizing the assessments of labor unions, journalists, Members of Congress, and others who disagree with your approach to transparency on trade issues as 'dishonest' is both untrue and unlikely to serve the best interests of the American people," the letter reads. The White House was not immediately available to comment. Some of Obama's claims about TPP on Friday took some creative license with the truth. He said that he wanted a trade deal that would allow American automakers to sell more cars overseas, without mentioning that Ford and autoworker unions do not support the pact. He also said that he had not included any language barring currency manipulation -- a key tactic by which Japan and China undercut American production -- because it might hamper the Federal Reserve's monetary policy operations. That scenario would only be possible if the pact defined "currency manipulation" in a particularly bizarre manner. The Warren-Brown letter also includes a subtly vicious Democrat-on-Democrat dig, suggesting that Obama's trade transparency record is worse than that of former President George W. Bush. They note that Bush published the full negotiation texts of a major free trade deal with Latin America several months before Congress had to vote on giving the deal fast track benefits. The Obama administration has resisted calls to follow suit with TPP. "What was true then remains true now," the letter reads. "The American people should be allowed to weigh in on the facts of the TPP before Members of Congress are asked to voluntarily reduce our ability to amend, shape, or block any trade deal." The Obama administration has been negotiating the TPP deal since the early days of his presidency. Democrats and a bloc of House Republicans lead by Rep. Walter Jones (N.C.) are concerned that the pact -- which has not been finalized -- will exacerbate income inequality and undermine U.S. authority to write its own regulations, while Obama and Republican leaders say the deal will help all Americans by boosting economic growth. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other top corporate lobbying groups support the deal, while environmentalists, organized labor and many Tea Party organizations are opposed. Warren and Brown said that corporate support for the deal shouldn't be surprising. "Executives of the country's biggest corporations and their lobbyists already have had significant opportunities not only to read [the TPP text], but to shape its terms," the letter reads. "The Administration’s 28 trade advisory committees on different aspects of the TPP have a combined 566 members, and 480 of those members, or 85%, are senior corporate executives or industry lobbyists. Many of the advisory committees -- including those on chemicals and pharmaceuticals, textiles and clothing, and services and finance -- are made up entirely of industry representatives." By focusing his attacks on Warren, Obama has elevated a quiet political quest to win over congressional Democrats into a prominent public debate with one of the most popular figures in his party, one widely seen as its standard-bearer on economic policy. Brown is one of the top Democratic experts on trade policy. His 2006 book detailing problems with the North American Free Trade Agreement and other trade pacts is celebrated by progressives. Democrats have been wringing their hands about the potential damage the dispute on Capitol Hill could do to the party, particularly as the 2016 elections get into gear -- a concern that is only compounded by the vitriol now being exchanged between two of its most prominent figures. Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has largely avoided addressing TPP in the early stages of her campaign. Read the full letter here.
Is this really going to happen? Anyone have any information?
SHOCKING is just one of the many word that go through my head. Just mean-spirited stuff Helen says to Kristy. See link below
first thread is nearly full (nearly 590), so starting thread #2 for when the first thread is full.
I have to travel and hotels in some of the cities I've been in are charging fucking ridiculous rates. Nothing against cities like Indy and Pittsburgh, but few hotels in those cities are worth $300 or $400 a night. Madison WI too. I mean, it's fucking Wisconsin. A bland ass hotel with chipped wallpaper is charging $300 a night? Give me a fucking BREAK. Is there some obvious reason for this I'm missing?
I just LOVED seeing Peter Dinklage tied up with a ball gag.
Hot and slutty!
Their men''s exercise wears are so form-fitting, they border on gay fetish clothing.
And all is now right with the world. Daddy is still hot to death. Link NSFW.
... 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.
You guys don''t know what you''re missing. My cooter got punished last night. It''s almost 10 and it feels like his cock is still pounding my hole. I really wish every gay man could experience that just once. I am laying in bed still luxuriating in the feeling. \ \ Its gonna be a good Sunday. Love to you all.
I have so many, but 2 of them are: They NEVER shut the door!! Why? Film school grads, is there some hidden meaning to this? It drives me crazy. No one does that In real life. When brushing with an electric toothbrush, where you are supposed to let the brush do most of the work and you just slowly move it along, people brush as though they were using an old-fashioned toothbrush. Why? It's distracting! It happened most recently in "Force Majeure". About 5 times!
I know a few bi men who identify as straight. They''re completely comfortable within themselves and acknowledge that they like guys/girls equally, yet if you asked them they''d say they were straight....Is this common amongst bi men?
Recently watched an interview she gave to the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Wonderful woman, and she's not afraid to look her age. (She looks good). But I get the sense that she's not interested in acting anymore. She's not fond of most current television. She would rather advocate for mental health. But there has to be one real good role out there for her, preferably in a motion picture. Something to give her a second Oscar.
Is he the new Cody Cummings ?
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!!!”
There have been a million threads on The Golden Girls, but let's devote one just for dreams about the show or about the characters. Last night I dreamed a feature film was being made and it was called "The Golden Girls: Sophia Goes to Hell."
What do you think of his looks?
I am enjoying it thoroughly. Anyone watching? I like the actress playing the lead character and her clones, and really enjoy the gay foster brother (I've always had a thing for hot campy guys). Maria Doyle Kennedy does "woebegone and stern" very well (The Tudors; Downton), but I have a feeling she'll get a chance to show more as the foster mom/grandmother as this goes on. Is the setting supposed to be Toronto?
I know that many ethnicities make up the Middle East, but I've been reading about what it means to be legally "white" in a country such as the United States. I'm interested in knowing if scientists consider Middle Easterners overwhelmingly Caucasian. I remember reading a piece years ago about whether or not Pakistanis were or weren't considered white. It seems to change legally from country to country.
For the athletic world outside the infamous saga!
Assuming, of course, that it is settled in our favor.
It''s been a stereotype for ages, but it''s most definitely true. Why can''t they cook?
Really. Some of us need to talk about this TO-night.
Has there been any? Discuss.
Despite the story lines: Mr. Belvedere; Mr. Furley; Monroe Ficus; Cagney + Lacey; Anthony Bouvier; Uncle Arthur: "Bewitched"; Miss Jane Hathaway...
Go to Marshalls or Homegoods. A friend turned me on to this. They have high quality, name-brand/designer sheets at great prices. I am assuming that they are last seasons styles or something, but who cares they're sheets.
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?
I''m reviving a thread from 2003 that I found on my computer. I''ll post the original thread.
Last night's "Inside Amy Schumer" had an interview with a trans woman -- Schumer asked some good questions, kept it light and funny and informative, and overall did a great job. Of course, to this Salon writer, IT WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. [quote]Schumer facilitated one of the most clumsy, contextually clueless, cringe-inducing exchanges on transgender issues I’ve ever witnessed—and this, after a period of trans emergence in the media during which someone of Schumer’s intelligence and curiosity should have learned to do better. And whatever was supposed to be wrong with this question just fucking eludes me: [quote]At one point, she asks Jay “What do you think the biggest misconception is about someone who’s trans?” apparently not recognizing the painful irony that the very interview she’s conducted has trafficked in the worst of those misconceptions: that trans people are defined by their genitals and their sex lives, that their worth depends on their ability to “pass,” and that they should be comfortable discussing the most intimate aspects of their lives or risk being seen as unfunny or not cool. Even the Salon commenters are saying "What the fuck?"
She doesn't really have a face for the silver screen. She'll probably have a few rom-coms and fizzle. Who does she remind you of?
We go a few times per year and just got back from another long weekend. It''s become Palm Springs east. Lots and lots of older gays have moved-in and seem to have taken over.\ \ I don''t have an issue with older guys, I''m no spring chicken myself at 33, but the entire town seems to have taken on a different feel the last couple of years. While many of the crowds this summer were much of the same, much older guys are showing up. Some of them are the old crusty muscle daddies and some are just ancient. Lots of mimosa drinking happening, so many of the year-round townies appear to be mid 40s and up, lots of sneering and bitching about how they''re tired of the "tourists", etc. (we know several locals).\ \ What used to be a vibrant, diverse gay resort town has become God''s waiting room for fugly, sour faced old gays. I''m expecting piano bars specializing in Shirley Temples to dominate Commercial Street by this time next year.
A homophobic femme boy who tries so hard not to seem gay marries a bisexual woman who just got divorced less than 6 months ago. Well that will work!!! Mazel!!!
...and summer brings out so many. Guys flashing their dicks out of the leg of the shorts, guys with hard ons rubbing off on my shoulder, men playing pocket pool. Even late at night some full on masturbation. Share your subway tales here.
As requested here is a new gym sex thread...
I have a friend who has blondish hair on his head and arms, but he's growing a beard right now and it's coming in a bit redder. Does that mean his pubes are probably reddish as well?
I am trapped in a "no broadband" area and just stumbled upon MeTV and they are playing a Wonder Woman movie. Great Zeus! I really think she might be an alien. There is no way a human being can be that perfectly beautiful. Those eyes, those tits, that waist...damn!
Confirming a long-held fan theory, pages from “All-New X-Men” #40 have leaked online ahead of Wednesday’s release that reveal Iceman is gay. The development has been picked up on by a number of gay media outlets, from The Advocate to NewNowNext. However, Marvel had no comment. Debuting in 2012, the series centers on the five original X-Men — Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Iceman and Jean Grey — who are brought from the past to the present to confront their counterparts. In the latest issue, written by Brian Michael Bendis and penciled by Mahmud Asrar, Bobby Drake comments on the “hotness” of Magik, leading telepathic teammate Jean Grey to pull him aside and point that he’s gay and appears to be overcompensating. After an initial denial and a suggestion that he might be bisexual, Iceman finally agrees with Jean that he’s “full gay.” Although Iceman has had romantic relationships with numerous female characters, from Opal Tanaka and Polaris to Mystique and Kitty Pryde, few have lasted long (seemingly fueling persistent speculation about the X-Man’s sexuality). An exchange in Wednesday’s issue addresses both canon and potential objections from some readers, with young Bobby asking, “How can my older self not be [gay] but I am?” before continuing, “Because maybe he couldn’t handle being a mutant and gay in a society that has issues with both? And one is easier to ‘put away’ than the other?”
Does that fuel the rumor that she is a hermaphrodite?
That way the rest of us would have an easier time of avoiding them without being tempted to troll them.
It almost seems like just about everything organic on this planet was "provided" for us to eat or build things with. Everything inorganic seems also to have some particular usefulness, just for us. If that's the case, what the heck is Space for? There isn't any conceivable way for us even to get to the nearest star let alone to the nearest Galactic Supercluster.

Approximately a dozen Native actors and actresses, as well as the Native cultural advisor, left the set of Adam Sandler’s newest film production, The Ridiculous Six, on Wednesday. The actors, who were primarily from the Navajo nation, left the set after the satirical western’s script repeatedly insulted native women and elders and grossly misrepresented Apache culture. The examples of disrespect included Native women’s names such as Beaver’s Breath and No Bra, an actress portraying an Apache woman squatting and urinating while smoking a peace pipe, and feathers inappropriately positioned on a teepee. The film, which is said to be a spoof of The Magnificent Seven and was written by Adam Sandler and his frequent collaborator Tim Herlihy, is currently under production by Happy Madison Productions for a Netflix-only release. The movie will star Adam Sandler, Nick Nolte, Steve Buscemi, Dan Aykroyd, Jon Lovitz and Vanilla Ice.
or are they just settling?
Which is better, and why?
Have any of you used one of these things? I'm moving to a smaller apt with my kitty and I want her to have fun and get exercise. Wonder if I could build this myself.
Economywise, yes, China surpassed America, but many people in China are still dead poor. What would happen if the standard of living in China surpassed America? E.g. people get paid more, the services are better. How would Americans react?

Half a century ago, Neil Young and Steve Stills were regulars on the Sunset Strip rock scene with Buffalo Springfield. They reunited on the Pantages stage a few miles east of their old stomping grounds Saturday night, delivering a short but powerful set to close out an autism benefit concert that also featured Steve Earle, Shawn Colvin and a raucous guitar auction won by Brad Pitt, whose $23,000 bid trumped that of auctioneer Jack Black and others to land him a Fender Stratocaster signed by all the performers. Young, 69, and Stills, 70, played with chemistry and charisma, two Sixties legends who have somehow managed to reinvent themselves again and again, navigating the perils of rock stardom that felled so many of their contemporaries. "We've been through some things together," Young sang, opening the nine-song set with "Long May You Run," the 1976 song from the short-lived Stills-Young Band. Young's high tenor was strong, clear, melodic. Stills had more rasp in his voice, and those notes at the top of his range often proved elusive. But when it came to their fretwork, both men were like old gunslingers showing the kids how it's done — soloing frequently on songs that included their Buffalo Springfield hits "Mr. Soul," "Bluebird" and "For What It's Worth."
We know what she's going to look like when she's 70. Not good.
Is he bisexual? I know he has a son and has been engaged in the past, but do you guys think he pings at all? He is currently playing Fiyero in the Wicked tour. He sure is an Instagram whore, loves posting photos of himself in his underwear. Not that any of us should mind that in the least, we should be grateful that he's such a whore! Seriously, who does he have taking some of these photos of him? A guy or a girl? I really loved this photo without the smiley face. He had the best bulge profile!
Next? Please don't become a Beeb
I'll admit, I do not know exactly what a frau is, and I likely would not recognize a post. If our generally reliable correspondents would post some typical frauish headings so we novices can spot them ... Thanks so much
The "importance" of the US television drama Outlander to the political atmosphere of last year's Independence Referendum was highlighted by key TV executives before a meeting with Prime Minister David Cameron. In cache of leaked memos from the Sony organisation obtained by Wikileaks, an email written by Keith E. Weaver, executive vice president at Sony Pictures Entertainment, which produces Outlander, discusses a meeting with the Prime Minister last summer. An Outlander insider last night said the meeting may have been why Sony "took the foot of the pedal" with finding a UK broadcaster. The Sony email mentions the "importance" of the TV series to the political situation last year, and how it would likely be a "focus" of the meeting with Cameron. Publication of the leaked email has further fuelled social media speculation that the UK Government did not want the show broadcast before the independence vote in September. The speculation ran that the show's depiction of heroic, Gaelic-speaking Highlanders fighting red-jacketed British soldiers would lead to a boost of the Yes vote at the referendum. Although a spokeswoman of the Prime Minister declined to comment last night, an Outlander insider, said that if Cameron had made an intervention on the transmission date of the show at the meeting, it would make sense. The insider, with intimate knowledge of the show, said: "It makes complete sense as to why Sony took their foot off the pedal with UK sales. "It was all systems go and they had the BBC up to see the set, etc, then there was a definite sense of trying to back pedal." Outlander, based on the best selling books by Diana Gabaldon and shot in Scotland, was finally broadcast in the UK this year, well after other countries, some who saw the show last August. It is now viewable on the Amazon Prime streaming system. In the background briefing document for a "PM Cameron event" last summer, Mr Weaver writes to other Sony executives: "Your meeting with Prime Minister Cameron on Monday will likely focus on our overall investment in the U.K. - with special emphasis on the jobs created by Tommy Cooper [the ITV show], the importance of Outlander (i.e., particularly vis-a-vis the political issues in the U.K. as Scotland contemplates detachment this Fall), and the growth of our channels business..." A spokeswoman for Sony declined to comment on the email. A spokeswoman for the Prime Minister said last night said: "We do not comment on leaks." She declined to comment on the meeting between Sony and the Prime Minister or whether he had asked for the transmission of the show to be delayed. At last year's Edinburgh International Book Festival, Gabaldon speculated on why the UK broadcast of the series was apparently delayed and she mentioned the rumours linked to the independence referendum. Gabaldon said: "There are in fact negotiating with one or more UK TV suppliers. "Why that deal has not come to a conclusion, I don't know, they have been at it for three months at least. "There has been talk and rumour and speculation, even though there is no evidence on which to speculate, but the most common rumour is they are waiting until after the Scottish referendum - but there is no evidence to suggest that is true. "You can take that for what it's worth." Pete Wishart, the SNP's candidate for Perth and North Perthshire, commented on the speculation that the Prime Minister intervened in discussions over the transmission of the programme. He said: "If correct, this is a new low for David Cameron - who has been cutting the choice of television programmes people can watch for political reasons. "A strong team of SNP MPs elected to Westminster on May 7 will make Scotland's voice heard like never before, end austerity and demand that no UK Prime Minister is able to censor like this."
Any on DL?
Young frauleins are as bad as the office fraus. We had a table of them sitting next to us at brunch, all talking in whispery baby voices where every sentence? Is a question? They all had their Pebbles Flinstone hair-piled-on-the-head look, and they thought it was totally appropriate to talk, while adults were sitting next to them, about: - Poop - diarrhea, pooping at the club, etc. - Changing tampons - A guy eating them out - Throwing up at a wedding because they were so drunk! And so on. I'm not a prude but seriously, these were like twentysomething women who though talking about these things made them somehow cool. It made them look like sad, desperate heifers.
It still exists! Who wants to go shopping? As a child, I was obsessed with the coin-sorting "Money Miser." Only $16.50!
It's not really a horror movie. It's not scary. What it is is very intelligent. It's a movie that requires you to be observant of both actions and symbolism and metaphors. What the movie excels in is maintaining a high level of anxiety and paranoia. There's no gore. None of the textbook scares found in todays "paint by numbers horror movies". The premise is simple and if you think about it then it has a familiarity to it as if you have actually always known about it. It's a supernatural STD. You catch it by having sex with an "infected" person. There is no cure. There is no way to stop it. And by it I mean the monster that will immediately begin to stalk you. It can appear in any form, as long as it's a human form. Your only saving grace is that it can only movie at a walking pace. It never runs, never sprints, just the steady walking pace. It's slowness is quite deceptive. Because it never sleeps, never rests. However, humans must do these things. Humans lose track of time and have their minds wander. Humans daydream, get caught up in movies, books, t.v. or friends. In the end it will always catch you and when it catches you it will kill you. The only way to stop it is to give it to someone else through sex. It's a fascinating film. It's about 2 hours in length. It does not drag. The music score and sound track are retro 80s. It better win awards. If you haven't seen it yet you are missing out. If you do go see it make sure to remain observant. There's hints to multiple things that happen off-camera that will help to broaden your understanding of the events you will see. The following video is of the opening of the film and commentary by the writer/director.
Sometimes they die showing off -oh well! If they really intrinsically loved mountain climbing and distance running, they would do it alone and independently, without documenting it on social media.
I was at Walmart about 6pm and I was in the middle of the crossway walking to the entrance. Cars are supposed to slow own for pedestrians and I was already in the middle when this car pulls in and doesn't even slow down in the slightest but attempts to swurve around me. It missed me by a couple of inches and it actually hit the bags I was carrying. If I had a brick on me I would have definitely threw it at the back window. I fucking hate idiots like this. They should have their license revoked permanently. To memorialize my escaping being injured, here is a compilation of people getting struck by cars.

My cousin went camping alone 27 years ago and never returned. He'd been camping since he was a kid and in his late teens and early twenties would often go off alone on a weekend to the same spot about 30 minutes from his parents home. One Friday afternoon he left and was never seen again. When the area he usually went to was searched there was no evidence that he had been there.
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.

It was a beautiful area and I enjoyed my visit but I''ve never seen so many hippy-dippy, vegan, hairy legged, birkenstock and peasant skirted young women in my life. They all had dreadlocks or some other hideous fucking hair and made disapproving noises when I bought meat at the grocery store. Are they all college students or is that town a haven for these types?
What about a tank cover?
There is a law that allows the government to seize part of the raisin production of farmers. Jeffrey Lessard writes: There are raisins stored in California warehouses as part of the U.S. government’s National Raisin Reserve — but the program may shrivel in the face of a Supreme Court challenge. The National Raisin Reserve — which is overseen by the Fresno-based Raisin Administrative Committee — is part of post-World War II-era program that forces raisin producers to give part of their annual crop to the government to prevent an oversupply of the dried fruit. Controversially, the program seizes the raisins from the farmers without paying them, and that has created friction, lawbreaking farmers, and a Supreme Court case. One scofflaw farmer, Marvin Horne, has refused to surrender his raisins to the government and owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and over 1 million pounds of the sweet dried fruit to Uncle Sam. The controversial raising-seizing program could soon be, however, a relic of history. Several Supreme Court justices expressed doubts Wednesday that federal officials can legally take raisins away from farmers without full payment even if the goal is to help boost overall market prices.

Anyone with a libertarian inclination will exult in the excellent movie, Dallas Buyers Club. It’s based on the true story of Ron Woodroof, an electrician and part-time rodeo cowboy in Texas who was diagnosed with HIV in 1985. Ron spent the last years of his life fighting the corrupt “health care” industry and the FDA as he searched for ways to cure AIDS, or at least diminish its horrendous effects. When diagnosed, he was told by the doctor to put his affairs in order, as he would be dead within a month. Through hard work and courage, he managed to live for seven years beyond that expiration date. He transformed his life from one of party-hardy debauchery to one of dedicating himself to helping others as he strove to help himself. I recommend this movie for its strong libertarian theme as well as its revelation of much truth about HIV and the nauseatingly corrupt U.S. medical industry and its partner in crime, the federal government. A word of caution: this movie is not one for children nor any adult who is easily offended.
It would be enough if they just worried about their own looks but they seem to be obsessed with everyone else's too.
Bruce Jenner’s E! TV Series: The Risk to His New Reputation April 26, 2015 | 06:22PM PT, Andrew Wallenstein, Co-Editor-in-Chief ABC News’ interview with Bruce Jenner on Friday was a poignant, restrained, socially conscious portrait of a person looking to set an example that could do some good for the world. In short, it was the polar opposite of everything we could expect from a TV program linked to either a member of the Kardashian Klan or the cable channel that employs them, E! Which should strike fear into the hearts of anyone hoping that the E! documentary series Jenner is now making will be as responsible as the two-hour Diane Sawyer interview was in its handling of transgender issues. Yes, it’s an inconvenient moment to express some skepticism as to how Jenner’s story will play out. ABC’s primetime special has ushered in enormous goodwill toward a man who has had his image rehabilitated seemingly overnight, transforming himself from the goofy dad on a tawdry reality show to the face of a civil-rights movement. His intention to “change the world” by sacrificing his privacy for public consumption is admirable and courageous. But there are so many reasons to consider that the way we saw Jenner on “20/20” may not be how he will be presented in his next production. And counterintuitive as it sounds, when you contemplate what a Kardashian-style Jenner story would be, that may not even be such a bad thing. Everything we know about E! and the Kardashians heralds the kind of project that could be problematic. This NBC Universal-owned network has long suffused everything on its air with fizz and fluff. In their success with multiple series on E!, the Kardashians have practically redefined the network they’ve called home for eight years in their own tacky image. But harsh as that is to say about the network and their flagship family, it’s not really an indictment. Not everything on TV has to be of redeeming value. But considering the Kardashians and E! churn out nothing but cultural pollution, there’s cause for concern that they lack the capacity to step up their game when the material demands it, as is the case with Jenner’s next chapter. Let’s face it: We’re about to see a show about a man who is trying to be a role model emerge from the same orbit as a family who has succeeded on E! by breeding anti-role models. In its defense, the network wisely emphasized in its announcement of the series the participation of a range of consultants with expertise in transgender issues. But that’s not really much of an assurance about how dignified E!’s approach will really be. Nor is E!’s categorization of the series as a “documentary.” It’s a label chosen to convey gravitas to a series on a channel better known for programming “reality shows,” “docudramas” and other terms that betray the slippery semantics applied to unscripted TV. Even E!’s choice of production company, Bunim-Murray, for the project feels like something to be second-guessed. E!’s announcement cites the company’s history of treating LGBT issues with appropriate delicacy in unscripted series like “The Real World.” But it was many years ago that this MTV series seemed so progressive and intelligent, in its first few seasons, for combatting prejudice with depictions of diversity — a memory that has been replaced more recently by a dumber, louder version of its former self. For every groundbreaking story Bunim-Murray and MTV so brilliantly told like the one of Pedro Zamora, a gay man with AIDS, in 1994, there’s many more of frat-house antics too forgettable to recount. So will E!’s Jenner project be more like the “Real World” of yesterday or today? Perhaps there should be comfort taken in the fact that no Kardashians were actually interviewed on the ABC special, a savvy decision calculated to contain the risk of their celebrity draining the oxygen that Jenner’s story needed to breathe. Of course, their absence could also be read as a shrewd withholding of what’s compelling enough to sell separately as a sequel of sorts to the ABC special: yet another special focused on telling the reaction to Jenner’s story from the Kardashians whose lives were impacted by him in a way that’s never been captured by their reality shows. When the youngest of his six children, Kylie Jenner, tweeted the night of the special, “You will hear what I have to say when I’m ready to but this isn’t about me,” it reads more like a promotional teaser than an expression of selflessness. The Kardashians are masters of manipulating both social media and tabloid-news outlets to market themselves more effectively than any TV promo could, which portends a rollout of disclosures about Jenner sure to be meted out at carefully timed intervals that will crescendo come time for the summer launch. ABC’s primetime special is undoubtedly just the opening salvo from what will no doubt be a relentless publicity campaign to promote not just a TV series but the image of a former Olympian who seems to be on the verge of iconhood all over again. No doubt executives at NBCU are steamed that Jenner’s story was told on a rival conglomerate’s broadcast network rather than one of its own properties. But someone high up the Comcast corporate ladder must be figuring out right now how NBC properties like “Today” or “Dateline” can capitalize on Jennermania with some kind of “exclusive” interview that would exemplify the synergy that warms the cockles of CEO Steve Burke’s heart. But the Kardashians also probably looked fondly upon by NBCU, which has come to understand the value of what may currently may be the two most important words in the movie business right now: “cinematic universe.” The Kardashians’ ability to turn the lives of their many daughters into multiplatform media and merchandise monsters feels more akin to another franchise also populated by many colorful characters — Marvel’s “Avengers” — than anything else TV has to offer as comparable. Though Jenner split from his wife last year, he seems still enmeshed enough in the Kardashians’ lives to suggest that this production is essentially a product of the family empire. It’s hard not to think of Jenner as just a brand extension of Kardashian Inc.–perhaps a distinctly more upmarket product than the trashier stuff they’ve already sold us, but still a product. And therein lies some cause for optimism. Perhaps all the attention the Jenner series will undoubtedly get, and the halo that will shine on the Kardashians as a result, will redefine our understanding of this family, who could position themselves in a way that even garners them some — gasp — respect. Stranger public-image shifts have happened. Or perhaps pessimism is warranted. Contrary to the initial indications that Jenner’s series will be a step up from the E! and Kardashian brands, consider what would occur if the consultants and production company E! has hired end up mere window dressing to a series that emerges from the very same mold that made “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” It’s one thing to serve up, as ABC News did, a few hours of uplifting, educational TV. But it’s quite another to stick to that tone over 10 one-hour episodes without indulging in the kind of bottom-feeding excesses that unscripted TV demands. Truth be told, it’s probably oversimplifying the matter to look at E!’s Jenner production in the stark either-or terms of Good or Bad. The series will likely be some mix of high road and low road: If it’s too saintly, it won’t be popular entertainment. But make some questionable creative decisions that draw the ire of the transgender community, and you have the kind of controversy that ignites the endless media coverage that translates to free promotion for the series. But maybe just a little tabloid flavor is OK. Because what may be the biggest risk of all here is that E! tries too hard to make the project worthy of being called a documentary, and the result is tasteful to a fault — too restrained and respectful to its subject to really resonate the way the savviest of unscripted franchises can convey warts-and-all authenticity (or at least fake that convincingly). Even the most ardent of transgender advocates has to recognize that the portrayal that they themselves would appreciate most isn’t necessarily the kind that would have a broader impact on the public at large. Just a spoonful of Kardashian-formulated sugar could help the medicine that is transgender politics go down. Make no mistake about it, Jenner’s E! production has the potential to be a truly hit series, and that’s “hit” in the old-fashioned sense of the word as it was used before cable and streaming hopelessly fragmented the TV audience. If the 17 million people who tuned in to “20/20″ on Friday was any indication, this should be the most prominent mainstream example of a transgender cultural figure in a way only mass entertainment has the power to deliver, and to an audience even bigger than more refined fare with transgender characters like “Orange Is the New Black” and “Transparent” have already begun doing. It just feels Jenner is poised to transcend being a mere TV star to something much grander. Even the way Jenner injected himself into the realm of politics during his special by declaring his Republican affiliation and calling out its most prominent leaders by name seems to hold out the possibility that he could even end up a symbol of the 2016 presidential race. Just wait until one of the politicians Jenner referenced is asked about him and then he is repudiated as some kind of demonstration of conservative family values. It’s a firestorm just waiting to make endless headlines. Jenner’s story is not going to work as a series if the figure at the center isn’t first and foremost a compelling individual. The Kardashians have, for better or worse, calculated that “compelling” requires putting bad behavior on camera. Jenner may understand he’ll need to play by those rules a little bit to get the most attention. And maybe cheapening his story is worth it. Perhaps Jenner will seek to construct the kind of narrative that will play to the broadest audience, even if it’s a tad trashy. That would be a small price to pay considering his lofty goal: sensitizing the world to the transgendered among us who have suffered greatly from prejudice and ignorance.
One of my favorite 50s movies, and one of Lana Turner's best performances. The boy who played Rodney Harrington was a dream. So was Lee Phillips, who played Dr. Rossi. Why didn't he become a bigger star? The clothes are anachronistic (totally 50s, when the film takes place in the early 40s) and a couple of the performances ring false, but this is truly an example of a trashy book being turned into a great movie. Something that I feel didn't repeat itself until The Bridges of Madison County. Discuss

I am NOT asking who is the best looking--that's a different thread. Rather, who is the best at fucking and gives the consistently best performances? For my money, Adam Killian. He's not the handsomest, but he always acts as if each fuck on camera will be his last ever.
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.
This deserves its own thread. Rise up and give what you can- STRETCH!

Go to the main page to vote, if you like. Have a great day.
Unlike, say, homosexuality, Asperger's is a developmental disorder. These patients require a lot of intervention, which is expensive, and having this disorder is another life struggle. Soon science will be able to identify the genes that contribute to the development of spectrum disorders. But some Aspies fear fetuses with Asperger's will be aborted simply for that reason. They also argue their lives are just fine, thank you. They say they're different; not disordered. But Aspies don't understand how frustrating they are to the rest of us because they have the disorder. I say parents should be able to selectively abort.

Believe it or not, people with this affliction, at their very core, are the inverse of the narcissist. People with BPD start out 'too sensitive', too empathetic. People with borderline personality disorder empathize to the point of pain. When the highly sensitive person grows up in a very non-validating and/or abusive environment, with a history of trauma, BPD can manifest. In order for borderline personality to develop, an invalidating environment with and a highly sensitive person MUST BE present. What is going on in a Borderline Personality Disorder sufferer's mind and how they are acting can be two entirely different things. To the sufferer, BPD is about deep feelings, feelings often too difficult to express, feelings that are something along the lines of this : If others really get to know me, they will find me rejectable and will not be able to love me; and they will leave me; I need to have complete control of my feelings otherwise things go completely wrong; I have to adapt my needs to other people's wishes, otherwise they will leave me or attack me; I am an evil person and I need to be punished for it; Other people are evil and abuse you; If someone fails to keep a promise, that person can no longer be trusted; If I trust someone, I run a great risk of getting hurt or disappointed; If you comply with someone's request, you run the risk of losing yourself; If you refuse someone's request, you run the risk of losing that person; I will always be alone; I can't manage by myself, I need someone I can fall back on; There is no one who really cares about me, who will be available to help me, and whom I can fall back on; I don't really know what I want; I will never get what I want; I'm powerless and vulnerable and I can't protect myself;. I have no control of myself; I can't discipline myself; My feelings and opinions are unfounded; Other people are not willing or helpful. To the family members, BPD behavior is often very frustrating can feel unfair and punitive - something like this: You have been viewed as overly good and then overly bad; You have been the focus of unprovoked anger or hurtful actions, alternating with periods when the family member acts perfectly normal and very loving; Things that you have said or done have been twisted and used against you; You are accused of things you never did or said? You often find yourself defending and justifying your intentions; You find yourself concealing what you think or feel because you are not heard; You feel manipulated, controlled, and sometimes lied to.

Millionaires in the house, I'm not hitting you up for $$, I just want to ask for some advice? Especially since this is the only forum I frequent, and opinions in other threads have been equally brutal and kind... We're working on this social issues project similar to ted.com. We've tried applying for formal grants for more than a year, but were denied being we're not a formal ngo/institution or are unsolicited. We really want to make a difference, but damn, getting started with funding is difficult. We need a little less than 300k to operate it for a whole year. Anyway,I was thinking of approaching "regular" people with abundant means (not the high-profile philanthropists) to help support it, but I'm not sure what approach is the best. Any advice? It is frustrating to be unable to get this going, then read about a few rich people drop 50k for a BAG... I'm not bitter, it does make me hopeful to think if there are people who spend so much on casual crap, maybe this would be chump change to chip in for this project?

Not that it should surprise anyone here, but problems are now being experienced in the old "Meet Philadelphia Gay Basher Kathryn Knott - New Thread" thread which, itself, was the last in a long line of disappearing threads on the topic of the Sept 11th group assault of two gay men in Philadelphia. These threads will continue to experience issues and eventually be shut down as more and more freepers, conservative trolls and their various ilk try and have them shut down. But this has always been a story that was born out of people on the Internet who weren't afraid to tell the truth about the injustices that were happening around them. So, we're going to keep discussing this case. And we'll also keep talking after this thread has been infected. This is the new thread to discuss all developments, discussion of the case, the many evil faces of Kathryn Knott, etc. Have at it, friends.

The whole concept doesn't seem to get as many people riled as it used to. I wonder if it's because the younger adult generations see sexuality as more nuanced, less absolute in terms of the labels we use for ourselves and others. Poll breaks out by age group... 30 and under, 31 - 49, 50+. There's a lot of variables (i.e. somebody in the closet in Alabama may be tolerable to to you, but somebody in the closet in Manhattan may not) to the view of the closet but for the poll's purpose I phrased the question as either you care if people are in the closet (because in your opinion it causes some kind of harm) or you don't.
I've been watching reality hip-hop shows lately. Pretty entertaining stuff
Excerpt- This is huge.revolution Similarly, while imperfect, more and more people have at least implicitly accepted that what consenting adults do in the bedroom – and even whom they choose to spend their lives with – is their business alone. We may not agree, some of us, with their activities or arrangements, but how many would wish to see people imprisoned or otherwise have violence done them on account of such things? In the past, you’d find many who would. Today, there are fewer such. A great deal fewer such. The changing attitudes are reflected in the changing laws. Consider the philosophical – the moral – significance of this. Of the principle that’s been – so to speak – smuggled into people’s minds. It is a resurfacing of the old American ideal: He ain’t bothering you. Leave him alone. The importance of this cannot be overemphasized. Because it scales. If one accepts in principle that it’s no crime – though perhaps a vice – for adults to smoke pot or to engage in various consensual sexual acts – then it is only a matter of time before that principle begins to be applied to other things. It is the critical first step toward conscious acceptance of the non-aggression principle (NAP), the moral idea that using violence against peaceful people is always wrong. While you may disagree with your neighbor, dislike him personally, believe that he ought to do this rather than that … so long as he ain’t bothering you, leave him alone.revolution pic 2 Once people grok this, everything will fall back into place. Demagogues (whether Team Red or Team Blue or some other team) will find increasingly less receptive audiences as people begin to recoil from aggressive violence, no matter how it is couched or justified. It may take time for these baby steps to become galloping great leaps forward. But progress is being made. Whether they realize it or not, many people have already embraced non-aggression when it comes to a variety of things that – within recent memory – most people (a working majority, anyhow) fully agreed constituted criminal acts worthy of violent response. Having questioned the moral propriety of some of these things, they have necessarily taken the decision to question all such things. It is no coincidence that “law enforcement” is sliding into general disrepute – even outright loathing. And the same goes for “authority” generally. People are questioning. And beginning, many of them, to see. Our task is to encourage this. And to be patient. To resist the temptation to lose hope – and lash out. The wheel turns. Give it time.

Their new Red Ranger for their 20th anniversary series "Power Rangers Megaforce" just started two weeks ago. They hired Andrew Gray to portray the Red Ranger.

"Megaforce" is actually not that bed. Yes, I watch this shit. lmao. Still love the original Sentai series better though. I agree, there has to be a Sean Cody-type video out there of him.

It's as if all the damaged, angry, sick trolls are beginning to fuse into one type. Has anyone else noticed this? I've been here since '02 and DL was always snarky, bitchy and somewhat brutal, but often snarky and bitchy for reasons not least of which were for humor. Then again, we could often have otherwise harmless, non-controversial topics that people would actually talk about for the most part, without flame wars breaking out. Cut to 2014: Even the most innocuous topics attract packs of wildings, spewing absolute rage and anger and deep, personal attacks on people as boring as those asking where to buy lemon juice, asking what DLers might do for Pride weekend and/or someone asking how otherwise blue collar types get so much disposable income. THIS is the shit that makes you wish death on people and hound a poster all over the site until they run away? We've moved beyond common trolls and seem to have witnessed the evolution of a new breed of psycho web zombie who eats anything in its path just for the sake of harming it. I miss you Datalounge.

They've been letting her bark all night next door and she would pace outside by my bedroom window. I tried earphones and earplugs but it was a shrieking kind of sound, with howling. She was young, part retriever. I guess they were trying to get her to grow up. They're horrible people and I couldn't talk to them. No one else would do anything. People here aren't like that. Eventually someone just would have given her antifreeze of something. So I started tossing raw meatballs over the fence with a tiny amount of my Xanax and Diazepam in them, one each night around 10. It worked fine. But I guess there was a build up of something because Tuesday morning I heard screaming and they had found the dog dead with froth all over its face. The woman came to my door and asked if I had seen anything and then as much as asked if I did something. I said no of course not, I loved Shelly. (I would give her treats and even walked her when she was a puppy a few times before the people got weird) Now she's going all over accusing people. She says they're getting two pit bulls and if anything happens she's going to start civil war. Now I don't know what to do. Should I just go and tell her the truth? It was an accident. I could say I was trying to soothe the dog and it was a terrible mistake. If she gets pit bull they'll be barking all the time and I'll have to move, and I can't afford more rent. I'm afraid they'll hurt my cats, which Shelly never did. I have an understanding with my landlord and I'm worried. Can I be arrested if I confess? All I wanted was some sleep. I know how this sounds, but any ideas will be helpful. Has this ever happened to you?
The US built a nuclear bomb in about 3 or 4 years while fighting two of the most powerful countries on Earth, 70 years ago. Today, even North Korea, India and Pakistan managed to build one. How is it the Iranians are having so much trouble building one now? Is it all fiction? Should we just obliterate them?

The fat cats in Washington D.C. are living the high life, and they are doing it at your expense. Over the past decade, there has been one area of the country which has experienced a massive economic boom. Thanks to wildly out of control government spending, the Washington D.C. region is absolutely swimming in cash. In fact, at this point the state of Maryland has the most millionaires per capita in the entire nation and it isn’t even close. If you have never lived there, it is hard to describe what the D.C. area is like. Every weekday morning, hordes of lawyers, lobbyists and government bureaucrats descend upon D.C. from the surrounding suburbs. And at the end of the day, the process goes in reverse. Everyone is just trying to get their piece of the pie, and it is a pie that just keeps on growing as government salaries, government contracts and government giveaways just get larger and larger. Of course our founders never intended for this to happen. They wanted a very small and simple federal government. Sadly, today we have the most bloated central government in the history of the planet and it gets worse with each passing year. If you were to ask most Americans, they would tell you that the wealthiest Americans probably live in cities such as New York or San Francisco. But thanks to the Obama administration (and before that the Bush and Clinton administrations), the state of Maryland is packed with millionaires. In particular, the Maryland suburbs immediately surrounding D.C. are absolutely overflowing with government fat cats that make a living at our expense. Every weekday morning, huge numbers of them leave their mini-mansions in places such as Potomac and Rockville and drive their luxury vehicles to work in the city. As the Washington Post has detailed, at this point approximately 8 percent of all households in the entire state of Maryland contain millionaires, and the rest of the area is not doing too shabby either… In Maryland, nearly 8 out of every 100 households in 2014 had assets topping $1 million, giving the state more millionaires per capita than any other in the country, according to a new report from Phoenix Marketing International. The rest of the Beltway isn’t lacking in millionaires either: The District and Virginia ranked in the top 10 among those with the highest number of millionaire households per capita in 2014. In Virginia, which was No. 6 on the list, 6.76 percent of the state’s 3.17 million households are millionaires. And in the District, which rounds out the top 10, 6.25 percent of its more than 292,000 households are millionaires. And while not too many of them are millionaires, your average federal workers that toil in D.C. are doing quite well too. Once upon a time, it was considered to be a “sacrifice” to go into “government service”. Not anymore. If you can believe it, approximately 17,000 federal employees made more than $200,000 last year. Overall, compensation for federal employees comes to a grand total of close to half a trillion dollars every 12 months. In fact, there are tens of thousands of federal employees that make more than the governors of their own states do. Does that seem right to you? If you want to live “the American Dream” these days, the Washington area is the place to go. Just check out the following description of the region from the Washington Post… Washingtonians now enjoy the highest median household income of any metropolitan area in the country, and five of the top 10 jurisdictions in America — Loudoun, Howard and Fairfax counties, and Falls Church and Fairfax City — are here, census data shows. The signs of that wealth are on display all over, from the string of luxury boutiques such as Gucci and Tory Burch opening at Tysons Galleria to the $15 cocktails served over artisanal ice at the W Hotel in the District to the ever-larger houses rising off River Road in Potomac.

You're fucked, girl!
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.
The audio recording, incorporated into a video with Russian subtitles and posted on YouTube Tuesday, appears to be a conversation between the top U.S. diplomat for Europe, Victoria Nuland, and the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, discussing how to resolve the ongoing standoff between the Ukraine government and protesters camped out in the streets. [bold]At one point, the voice apparently belonging to Nuland suggests that United Nations efforts should take precedence over the E.U. position, adding, “f–k the E.U.”[/bold]
I just don't get his motivation. Adam Lanza, TJ Lane, the Columbine Kids, Virginia Tech -- I understand why they were so willing to throw their lives away. They were unattractive social outcasts. James Holmes was attractive, he was social, he had an active sex life. Most of these guys live a life of being an outcast, but in Holmes' case, it was only those last few months. So what happened? Drugs? Schizophrenia? Doesn't that usually present itself in the 20s?
Shades of Snowpiercer. I know global warming gets all the attention, but global cooling would be far worse. We are living in an interglacial era. Every time the world gets closer to our current peak, it quickly plunges into another ice age. These interglacial periods appear to have some correlation with sunspot activity. The latest news on sunspot activity is similar to other cold spells. Although sunspot data only goes back a few hundred years, the "mini-ice age" from 1250-1850 leads to this detail- [quote]…if history is a guide, it is safe to say that weak solar activity for a prolonged period of time can have a negative impact on global temperatures in the troposphere which is the bottom-most layer of Earth’s atmosphere - and where we all live. There have been two notable historical periods with decades-long episodes of low solar activity. The first period is known as the “Maunder Minimum”, named after the solar astronomer Edward Maunder, and it lasted from around 1645 to 1715. The second one is referred to as the “Dalton Minimum”, named for the English meteorologist John Dalton, and it lasted from about 1790 to 1830. Both of these historical periods coincided with below-normal global temperatures in an era now referred to by many as the “Little Ice Age”. In addition, research studies in just the past couple of decades have found a complicated relationship between solar activity, cosmic rays, and clouds on Earth. This research suggests that in times of low solar activity where solar winds are typically weak; more cosmic rays reach the Earth’s atmosphere which, in turn, has been found to lead to an increase in certain types of clouds that can act to cool the Earth. Here is the link that got me thinking. Notice how the planet is at the peak temperature. Hundreds of thousands of years of data, all showing that we are on the cusp of a new ice age.
Suppose the United States decides to retire all the debt held offshore. It amounted to $6,112,000,000,000 at the end of last year. We just print the money and send it to wherever the interest checks are presently going. We can do this. I hold that the effect will be far less severe in the United States than in other countries. Reason being, the subsequent precipitous decline in the Dollar will wipe out foreign rich people who have their loot in $$$$'s. What else will happen, guru's? I think there will be little or no inflation here because the government can just continue to report there isn't any.
I was just looking at a trailer for Ricky Gervais''s new film Cemetery Junction. Set in 1973 and it just looks like a 2009 version of what 1973 looked like. It''s not that long ago...why''s it so difficult to get it right?\ \ In the 60s so many films set in earlier eras, say Edwardian times, had girls with big hair and tons of eye make-up. They were hilarious.
From President Obama's speech today, see below. This is why it's important to vote Democratic in the November election. We need more representatives who will fight for the working man and woman, to keep these gains from being reversed and to move forward with more gains. When President Obama was elected, businesses where laying off 800,000 people a month; today, they are hiring 200,000 people a month. The unemployment rate has dropped from 10.9% in 2009 to 6.1% today. Over the last 4.5 years, businesses have created 10 million new jobs. This is the longest uninterrupted stretch of job creation in our nation's history. There are more job openings now than anytime since 2001. During the Obama Administration, the US has put more people back to work than in Europe, Japan, and every other advanced economy COMBINED. Of course, there are people who are still struggling, that is why we need to vote Democratic in all offices this November, to elect people who will fight for the working man and woman. We can't afford to have these gains reversed.

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — The winds of political change are coursing through austerity-weary Greece, but a financial whirlwind may lurk round the corner. Opinion polls ahead of Sunday's closely-watched national election agree: The radical left opposition Syriza party, which has vowed to rewrite the terms of Greece's international bailout, is poised to defeat Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' conservatives. To govern — in a historic first for the Greek left — it may need the backing of a smaller party, but most seem willing to oblige. "I want this government to go. It has disappointed me," said Babis Limnaios, 41, an Athens electrician who last voted in 2004 for the conservatives but will now back Syriza. "I want them to change everything — tax, health care, education." Communist-rooted Syriza has alarmed markets and investors with its talk of massive debt forgiveness and riding roughshod over the bailout deals. But the mood is less fraught than in the last national election in 2012, when many saw a Syriza victory as a precursor to a possible Greek exit from the eurozone, the 19 nations that now share the euro currency. For one, Greece's European partners are less exposed to fallout from a Greek financial collapse. The eurozone has a bailout fund and the European Central Bank has committed to buy the bonds of troubled countries, if needed. And despite erratic bombshells from some Syrizan officials — one candidate suggested printing euros if push comes to shove — the party is straining to play up its mainstream, Eurocentric aspects. Still, Greece's next government faces an enormous to-do list. It must consolidate reforms, keep running balanced budgets, strengthen weak growth after a six-year recession, conclude frozen talks with bailout inspectors to secure a 7.2-billion-euro ($8.1 billion) loan tranche and negotiate further relief for its bloated, 320-billion-euro ($359 billion) debt. Creditors insist Athens must honor its bailout commitments if it is to receive continued support. If things go wrong, Greece could again face default — despite its 240-billion-euro ($269 billion) bailout and years of belt-tightening — and find its eurozone membership untenable. Samaras, whose New Democracy party governed since May 2012 in a coalition with its Socialist former archrivals, has promised some tax relief, saying economic growth and investment will gradually reduce unemployment. He was forced to call Sunday's vote to end an impasse over the election of Greece's new president. Syriza's 40-year-old leader, Alexis Tsipras — a former Communist youth member — favors a radical approach: Writing off most of Greece's debt, a burden he describes as "not just unbearable, it objectively cannot be repaid." Tsipras voiced confidence Friday that he can strike a "viable, mutually acceptable and beneficial" deal with creditors by the end of June, after which Greece will need to pay maturing bonds worth more than 10 billion euros that are held by the ECB. Syriza wants to ditch primary surplus targets, while still pursuing a balance between non-debt-related spending and revenues. It proposes to restore the minimum monthly salary from 586 to 751 euros ($657 to $842), provide free power and food coupons to 300,000 households, raise the tax-free income threshold from 5,000 to 12,000 euros ($13,500), reverse public sector firings and liberalize labor laws. Greece's electoral system gives a 50-seat boost to the first party, making it effectively impossible for the runner-up to form a coalition if the winner fails. In a deeply polarized campaign, the conservatives have demonized Syriza, stoking middle class fears of bankruptcy and a return to the old drachma currency. "The only thing they haven't said so far is that, if Syriza wins, it will round up your children and seize your women," Tsipras joked. But the invective doesn't seem to be working. Opinion polls published on the last day of campaigning showed Syriza increasing its lead, with five surveys giving Tsipras an advantage of between 5.2 and 6.7 percentage points — a gain of about 2 points in a week. In the name of national salvation, Greeks have suffered five years of gruesomely high unemployment, during which the economy shrank by a quarter and average incomes by a third. Jobs, where available, are mostly underpaid or part-time, offering no social security or prospects for advancement. Health care services have deteriorated, pensions have been slashed, and most apartment blocks lack central heating because so many residents can't pay. Meanwhile, the average tax burden has multiplied. The final straw was last year's decision to make permanent a hated new property tax. That hurts, because for decades ordinary Greeks had invested in real estate. Since 2009, however, market prices — but not taxable values — have dropped 40 percent and rents have shrunk. Cinema production electrician Gerasimos Soulis said he would vote for Syriza but without great conviction in its ability to enact change. "Jobs have opened, but they're not jobs. It's like you're making pocket money," he said. "We are trying with a third of the money to do what we used to do. And we're happy that we now have a third, because they made us grow accustomed to having nothing." What remains doubtful is whether Syriza will secure the minimum 151 seats in Greece's 300-member parliament that it needs to govern alone. If not, it must look for a partner from a smaller party. Tsipras said Friday that he is "one step" away from an absolute majority, which would spare him an alliance with "the forces of yesterday, which have every reason to want to trip Syriza up after the election." But he indicated that he would compromise, if needed, to avoid a second election a month later. With the politically untouchable, Nazi-inspired Golden Dawn party, whose leadership is in jail awaiting trial for running a criminal organization, and the Communist Party — which refuses to cooperate with anyone — out of the picture, possible partners include the new, centrist but untried Potami (River) party or the once-formidable PASOK Socialists. Friday's polls suggested Golden Dawn has made late gains and is challenging Potami for third place. A third option for Syriza could be governing with the populist right-wing Independent Greeks, who agree with Syriza on need to end the austerity but disagree on about everything else.
Again, for a Prime Minister.
Office workers want technology to help them get things done anywhere, sunrise to sunset." That's the chipper headline of a Microsoft infographic that's currently going viral on social media, although not for the reasons the company intended. The ad pairs findings from a poll of employees' remote-work habits with vignettes about all the ways you can stay productive outside of the office, 24/7/365. For instance, you could be getting work done on the john like 19 percent of your colleagues, according to Microsoft. On vacation? "You can still participate in meetings," the ad reminds you -- even while at a national park! No trip to the Grand Canyon is complete without a quick update from the sales team via video conference. Starting to get worried about "work-life" balance? Fret not: "you don't have to miss the kids' game or recital when you can work anywhere." Just look at the World's Greatest Dad here, on the phone with his boss while his kid scores a soccer goal. I have to assume that a final pane showing a worker dead in a coffin, arms crossed peacefully over a Surface Pro, was only omitted due to space considerations. Kidding aside, this is an unhealthy, unproductive way to live. For instance, a recent study found that more people than ever are trading sleep for work, and to the extent that less sleep is linked to myriad health problems, that bargain is killing us. Exhausted workers -- like who have been up all night filling out Excel sheets in bed -- are more likely to lie and cheat on the job. And study after study has shown that well-rested workers are more productive and perform better at their jobs. Ditto for workers who take vacations -- especially if they leave their work at home. Your brain needs downtime -- and if you're working at the dinner table, you're probably not getting it. Microsoft frames never-ending labor and connectivity as a way to "help balance life's demands." I'd counter that if you're writing earnings reports on the toilet, your work-life balance needs more life and less work.

Beyond gay marriage: Idaho LGBT advocates battle legal discrimination Activists are pushing to ‘add the words’ of LGBT inclusion to protections law in a state where same-sex couples can marry but also be fired for being gay Amanda Holpuch in New York, Sunday 26 April 2015 00.00 EDT As the US supreme court’s decision on whether states can enforce bans on same-sex marriage moves to the oral arguments stage on Tuesday, LGBT activists are getting ready to face a more aggressive campaign to diminish their rights. Concern is highest in places like Idaho, one of 13 states where a person can be in a same-sex marriage, but can also be fired for being gay. “People are worried that if they do get married, then they can then lose their job for getting married,” said Jess McCafferty, education and outreach coordinator at the American Civil Liberties Union of Idaho. In several of the state’s major cities, campaigners such as the ACLU have successfully pushed for municipal ordinances that offer protection from such a situation – but Idaho has a large rural population that remains unprotected and its powerful conservative government is not inclined to pick up such laws statewide. For the past 10 years, LGBT advocates in the state have been pushing Idaho to do just that – and grant state protections to people based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Such legislation was finally made the subject of a hearing in January, but a House of Representatives committee blocked the so-called Add the Words bill the day after the testimony ended. One of hundreds to testify about the experience of being a gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender resident of Idaho was Christine Antonio, the mother of a transgender teenager. “My stomach lurches when I think about his prospects in a place where just being different is still frowned upon,” Antonio said. “We do not expect everyone to understand him, but we do except that he is treated with dignity and acceptance.” The more conservative people in the state tend to accept that same-sex couples exist, McCafferty said, but did not necessarily support that relationship being state-approved. She described the attitude as: “It’s OK if this guy is a queer, but they’re not getting married.” She and other advocates are expecting a more aggressive push by lawmakers for more so-called “religious freedom” ordinances. In 2000, Idaho enacted its version of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a bill that forces the government to prove that it has a “compelling interest” in infringing on a religious person’s beliefs. It resembles the controversial legislation passed in Indiana last month which Governor Mike Pence was pushed to amend to show that it did not create a pathway to discrimination after receiving tremendous global pushback. Even with the RFRA in place, Idaho lawmakers are introducing bills that would protect the type of discrimination opponents to state “religious freedom” laws are concerned about, such as allowing businesses to refuse service on religious grounds.
And have a few questions..\ \ Was Chris having sex with Burke, or was he just a really good friend? Regan seemed to think it was the former.\ \ Did the demon that was possessing Regan smell? I noticed people would often cover the nose, when it came out.\ \ How was the demon able to torture Regan, and not kill her? I mean the spiderwalk, and her head turning all the way around?\ \ Who gave Regan the cross she used to masturbate with?\ \ And finally, what was the story with Father Dyer? Am I the only one who noticed how much he pinged when he was playing the piano?

BOSTON -- Despite missing Saturday's practice with a bruised tailbone, Boston Celtics big man Jared Sullinger declared himself available for Sunday's must-win Game 4 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. And he believes he can thank his large backside for the quick recovery. [quote]"I just went up, tried to wrap up (Kevin) Love, and I flipped and fell on my backside," he said before the game. "Luckily enough I have a big enough ass to the point where it didn't hurt that bad. I didn't have an Isaiah (Thomas) type of injury. I was able to bounce back in two days." Sully's phat ass can now been seen jiggling in action on Game 4 againts the Cavaliers on ABC!

Twilight fans may be upset that Robert Pattinson decided to put a ring on girlfriend FKA twigs, but his famous ex Kristen Stewart seems 100 percent okay with it. In fact, she couldn’t have looked happier at an event in Los Angeles on Friday, April 3, a day after Us Weekly confirmed her ex-boyfriend is engaged. Grinning from ear to ear and flashing the peace sign, Stewart looked amazing while she posed at the screening of her latest flick Clouds of Sils Maria at the Bing Theatre at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Friday. The Twilight star, who famously dated Pattinson from 2008 to 2012, opened up to the audience, revealing that she feels more satisfied than ever before with her career. “I’m having more fun now than I ever have,” Stewart, who was awarded the Best Supporting Actress Cesar Award in Paris this past February, said, via the Associated Press. “We made Camp X-Ray in 20 days. It’s just better when it’s faster. [In these movies], there were no moments that people had read in a book that were the most important thing in their lives. I really let go,” she explained of taking on roles not based off a novel. As previously reported, Pattinson and FKA twigs got engaged after just six months of dating. The two took the next step in their relationship by exchanging what they said were “promise rings.” "I hear they were telling people they were promise rings, but I haven't seen Pattinson wearing one. They only told a few people about the engagement," an insider told Us. "They've been inseparable. He's planning on going to Coachella to support her," the source adds of FKA twig’s upcoming performance this weekend. "They've been living together and he's been calling her his greatest love." Stewart, for her part, has been spending her downtime vacationing in Hawaii with pal Alicia Cargile.
What a welcome addition to the trans movement. Fun is something that group hasn't put much emphasis on in the past.
There are conflicting reports out about ticket sales for Britney Spears' Vegas concerts ... some are saying sales are disastrously poor ... Brit's people are saying "it's the best-selling show in the history of Vegas." TMZ now has the numbers, and it's pretty clear -- Britney is about to own Vegas. Britney will be performing 48 shows a year for the next 2 years -- according to the contract obtained by TMZ. Tickets are available now for the first 16 shows. We've been on dozens of calls with StubHub, Ticketmaster and Planet Hollywood's box office among others ... and here's what we're told. For the first 16 shows ... a total of 73,600 tickets were up for sale. The number of tickets actually sold are impressive -- 70,242. Of the available, remaining, 3,358 tickets, 2,887 are in the nosebleed section. We can't vouch for this being the best selling show ever in Vegas, but it's definitely up there. Britney sources have told us they're actually talking about adding shows, and if that happens Britney will rake in even more than the $15 mil a year she's already guaranteed.
I've known for years that I'm terrified of physical contact, but never really felt that it would be a lifelong thing. I know it has a lot to do with not liking my body, and being shy, and never having been physical with anyone. I've been alone my entire life and can't imagine having another person in my life. But the actual act of getting naked and having sex with someone scares the hell out of me.

Bruno Amadio’s portrait of a weeping child hit the headlines in the 1980s when a Yorkshire firefighter claimed to have noticed the painting left unscathed at the scene of numerous house fires, leading to rumours that it was cursed. Newspapers organised bonfire burnings of copies of the painting to rid the country of the curse. Haunted bunk beds of Wisconsin terrorised a whole family in late 1980s.Four people said to have died after sitting on Philadelphia 'death chair' From the Indiana 'ghost cane' to the 'chair of death', these regular household fixtures are sure to give you the creeps''
On W80th St... anyone ever been there?\ Any hot UWS guys there?\ Married guys?\ \ Any info?
Let us continue discussing hot brothas, filming that ass for cash! The legends, flashes in the pan, and the like. The first thread is getting full, and it's not working for me anymore anyway. Mike Mann is NOT amused, if you couldn't tell.
Their photos are public because they want the whole world to know how amazing they are!! These kind of people fascinate me for some reason. Blogs and other websites also welcome.
Take it back, please! Thank you. (Don't you hate it when they don't toast the bread properly?)
Today on "CBS Sunday Morning" Martha Teichner did a feature on Paul Stankard who designs beautiful paper weights. She said "the furnace, for what's it's worth, is called the Glory Hole."
Does the series end with them all dying in a grease fire?
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.
I have lost count of all the ugly, fat, girly or otherwise undesirable men I know who hide their flaws behind their beard. No, you are not a 'bear'. You are not 'masc'. You are a fat ugly gay guy who grows facial hair. When will the beard trend go away!?
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.
Sherri Shepherd does not want anything to do with her unborn surrogate baby ... because she believes her estranged husband defrauded her into having the kid in the first place so he could get child support ... this according to multiple sources connected with the couple. TMZ broke the story ... Sherri and her husband Lamar Sally each separately filed legal docs to end their marriage. The big complication -- a baby will be born this month to a surrogate who signed a contract with Sherri and Lamar. Now our sources say ... the baby was conceived with Lamar's sperm, but NOT Sherri's egg. Now here's where it gets tricky. We're told Sherri does not want custody or even to be considered a parent ... because she doesn't want to get stuck with massive child support payments. Sherri wants a judge to rule she has no parental rights or responsibilities -- which would shut the door to child support. She claims Lamar defrauded her -- that he got her to sign on for a surrogate birth knowing full well he would divorce her and then nail her to the wall for child support. Our Lamar sources say Sherri tried to get pregnant in vitro and when it didn't work she got deeply involved in the surrogacy process. Another twist ... Sherri has filed for divorce in New Jersey and Lamar has filed in California. This is not a coincidence. We did some digging, and found New Jersey courts generally do NOT recognize surrogacy agreements, which means Lamar would probably be shut down. Not so in Cali.
CNNMoney (New York) April 16, 2015 Wikileaks on Thursday published a searchable database of every Sony email and document that was stolen by hackers last year. The U.S. government blamed North Korea for the hack that destroyed computers at Sony Pictures, temporarily shut down the movie studio and exposed embarrassing emails from top executives. It even resulted in Sony Pictures Entertainment's co-chairman Amy Pascal's resignation. These files have already existed online, hosted on computers around the world. But now they're easy to find on Wikileaks.org. WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange justified the tactic this way: "This archive shows the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation," he wrote in a statement. "It is newsworthy and at the centre (sic) of a geopolitical conflict. It belongs in the public domain. WikiLeaks will ensure it stays there." In a statement, Sony blasted Wikileaks: "The cyber-attack on Sony Pictures was a malicious criminal act, and we strongly condemn the indexing of stolen employee and other private and privileged information on WikiLeaks," a spokeswoman said. "We vehemently disagree with WikiLeaks' assertion that this material belongs in the public domain."
A video has popped up on LiveLeak of a woman who appears to be ESPN reporter Britt McHenry dressing down a parking lot attendant, making fun of the woman’s features, and using the “do you know who I am?” argument.
For what reasons do you think these celebs would be selected? Inspired by the ass fucking in prison thread.

I'm lonely. Anyone want to watch it with me?
The only way to do it scientifically is with a poll because lurkers love polls.
Uma should stage an intervention, at least for the children's sake!
[quote]“I know that’s my demographic. That’s been made clear to me by my fans,” she says with a laugh, noting that she’s often stopped by gay admirers of her work when she’s out in public. “I love it. I think it’s so cool, because one day I hope to be a gay icon.” I don't get why she thinks she has a big gay following. I actually love her and think she is a terrific actress but I've never noticed her getting a lot of gay love.
That is the weirdest industry term.

I'm hugely obsessed with this guy. I've even contemplated hiring a hacker t hack into his facebook account and phone so that I may read his text messages and fb messages. I don't need to attach a pic to this thread, because I'm sure a good portion of DLers of seen the pics.
I'll start with Dee Snider! This one is hilarious
Best movie I've seen in ages. Juliette Binoche is great as an aging actress but it is Cesar Award-winning Kristen Stewart who gives the best performance as Juliette's personal assistant. What a fantastic (English language by the way) film.
Susan Ames is such a bossy bitch. SHE should have been killed in that car crash, not her mother, Ellen. Poor Peter. What a cunt for a daughter. And that husband of hers! Illicit Drugs!!!
And become the number one superpower? I heard an Indian man talk about it with his friends that by 2015, India would be the number one superpower surpassing United States.
He's gay, right? I'm watching him give the forecast on Good Day NY in my doctor's office. He's incredibly muscular, really well-groomed, and has a certain "pingy" quality about him. So what's the verdict on this gorgeous weather hottie?
I literally just found out about this yesterday. Apparently, the term Lunar Transient Phenomenon was coined by NASA in reference to weird shit being seen on the moon by professionals, not cranks. Things like, white lights, blue lights, orange lights, red lights, clouds, smoke, vapor, lightning, "volcanic activity", objects moving on the surface and above the surface of the moon, tracks or structures that appear and disappear quickly, etc. Lunar Transient Phenomenon have been documented for over a 1,000 years now. NASA compiled an official study of this phenomenon, which you can read below. Unfortunately, when the lunar program was canceled NASA supposedly stopped documenting the phenomenon.
Do we know of any gay relationships he''s been in or of guys he''s bedded? Or is it all just rumor and innuendo?\ \ For the record, I hope he''s gay, and I''m certainly not one who needs "proof," but I''ve just never heard anything about actual gay behavior, and want to know what you all might have heard.
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.
It looks awesome! So hot.
is also a shit movie.
WOW, what a piece of crap
It was very disconcerting. I can't believe someone would ever talk to me in that way. I've never been criticized like this before. I thought I was doing great. I was going into the office everyday thinking I was killing it. If they didn't think I was killing it, why didn't they sit me down and talk to me about it instead of letting me walk around everyday thinking I was made of awesome? I really don't know what more they want from me. I'm already giving 100%. Isn't it enough that I come in everyday and try my best? If that's not good enough for them then I don't know what is. And the worst part is that they not only did this to me on a Friday, thus ruining my weekend, but they also did this to me during my birthday month. Now every time I think of my birthday I'm going to think of this. Thanks for ruining my special day, work. The only person more mad about this than me is my mom. She's going to call my manager first thing Monday morning to have a talk with him. Hopefully they can arrange a face-to-face conference and get my grade changed. Ugh, this is so frustrating. I've never felt this bad before. My self confidence has really taken a hit. I don't know if I can even go back to work to face everyone if this doesn't get sorted out :( Is this what all performance reviews are like? If so, I don't think I can endure another one. This is my first one and I never thought it would go like this. I hate work. I don't ever want to work again.
He said I would never be able to get a girlfriend driving the clunker I had, lol.
About dead bodies during Katrina!!!
I'll start. En El Jardín - Gloria Estefan with Mexican hottie Alejandro Fernández
The new scripted drama premieres tonight. From the creator of "The Tudors" and starring former CK underwear model Travis Fimmel and Gabriel Byrne. I'm going to give it a shot...early reviews are encouraging, and I'm guessing many of the male characters will be hot, in an uncivilized, possibly murderous yet emotionally conflicted way. Kind of like some of the guys I've known from real life. I want to see wanton pillaging and bedroom intrigue.
Top, bottom? Did he ever have a black boyfriend? How bad are his issues?
For example, why is DL fave Cillian Murphy a DL fave?
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...
Just was sent this via text. Um WOW!
I like her, but let's be honest. Aside from her looks and her bad girl image, not much else explains why she managed to have so much success since 2005/2006. There had to be so many other women--others with more talent--waiting to get a recording deal with Def Jam records in the mid 00s. I'm guessing Jay Z had her sucking his dick. Does anyone here have any information on her? Does anyone here know how she managed to get a record deal? And is it true they were planning on shelving her until Umbrella became a huge hit?
I thought this might be a useful thread/resource for listing hard-to-find movies that might be on YouTube. In another thread, someone mentioned seeing the ridiculously homophobic "Windows" on YouTube. That's how I finally saw it. Same with "Picture Mommy Dead" (hard to find on DVD for decades), "Looking For Mr. Goodbar" (a DL poster tipped me off to its presence on YouTube), "Multiple Maniacs" and "A Cold Wind in August." It's hard to find US DVD versions of Russ Meyer movies, but several of them are on YouTube in their entirety, including "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" and "Good Morning... and Goodbye!". Others?
What the fuck is this fuckery? I hear it all the time now. Is this a new saying all the kids are saying these days?

Ed Sheeran is spilling the T on his pal Harry Styles. In a recent interview with New Zealand’s ZM Online, Sheeran was asked whether he wrote “Little Things” about the One Direction member’s… member. Related: Ed Sheeran Took Taylor Swift’s Dancers To A Gay Strip Club “He definitely hasn’t got a little thing, so, no, I did not write ‘Little Things’ about little things,” Ed replied. The ginger singer also revealed that it was indeed Harry in a nude photo that went viral back in 2012. In it, a young man stands in the bathroom taking a dic pic in the mirror. At the time Styles denied it was him. “Did you know Harry leaked that picture himself? He leaked his own picture….I think it’s amazing. He was just like ‘no one knows.’” Well, we do now.
Sounds like it was a possible drug or alcohol overdose.
No more wide belts and her colors should be navy and deep purple. Also, fewer prints.
I just purchased a queen set for $30. They are 0% cotton and completely soft and comfortable. My sister practically called me a vulgarian when I told her. I used to spend over $100 for 100% Egyptian cotton, but these are just fine. Am I white trash?
What would you be emphasizing right about now? Be smart. I believe she reads DL regularly. Not for any lesbiany reason but because of the political wisdom.
Martha Fucking Stewart (starts at 46:00) KILLS IT! As for the others, some are funny, some are mildly, and some are...scary. Enjoy!
I live in Baltimore and I have say, compared to other cities, every corner is full of ugly people-especially the men. I don't know if it is the blue collar background or the accent or lack of fashion sense. But Baltimoremorons would make your ugly cousin look like Brad Pitt.
He was cast by him in 2 blockbuster movies, is exactly his type, and Singer has something of a reputation for using the casting couch, so it seems to add up.
But no Jesica.

There is so much pity out there for gay men who look, talk and act like gay men, but, very little sympathy for men like myself, who come off as straight. Here's why. Men like me hear all of the insults, because people assume we're straight. For instance, the women sitting at a table at a restaurant next to my table went on and on about gay men must be suffering form a disease of the libido because all they care about is sex. They're incapable of having loving relationships because that requires a woman...blah, blah, blah. It was all I could do to keep myself from making a scene. However, if I came off as obviously gay, I'm sure they would've never carried on a conversation like that.
Goin' north here, boss!
I hate his smarmy, know-it-all manner when a contestant gets an answer wrong. As if he''d know the answer if it weren''t written on a cue card.
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?
Just before his band's encore at London's Royal Albert Hall on September 30th, singer Tony Hadley of New Romantic survivors Spandau Ballet told a story about seeing his vocal hero, Frank Sinatra, at this opulent Victorian theater in the late Seventies and actually meeting the Chairman of the Board backstage. "What do you do, son?" Sinatra asked Hadley. "I'm a singer in a band, and someday I am going to play here," the younger man replied. He did – six years later, when Spandau Ballet's tiptoe-R&B ballad "True" was Number One in Britain and a lot of other countries. The group – Hadley, guitarist-saxophonist Steve Norman, drummer John Keeble, songwriter-guitarist Gary Kemp, and bassist Martin Kemp, Gary's younger brother – were back at the Albert Hall to host what was surely the biggest home-movie party in British pop history: the sold-out national premiere of Soul Boys of the Western World, a documentary of Spandau's origins, formation and rise, their near-two-decade split and, in 2009, reunion. The film, directed by George Hencken and first shown at SXSW last spring, was followed by a brief Q&A with Hencken and the band and a six-song live performance – all simulcast in cinemas across Britain and in Ireland. Soul Boys of the Western World aspires to be more than a typical rock doc, and at times it gets there – ditching voice-of-God narration for the band members' own plain-spoken commentary; placing the dress-up confrontation and disco affection of early-Eighties underground Britain against the draconian grip of Thatcherite rule. The pre-hitsville footage is perfectly raw and jittery – super-8 reels of Spandau as teenage wannabes, working-class glam kids performing for family and school friends; then at play and on display with the small, early corps of Blitz kids in 1978-79, a cozy London Weimar Republic of soft-core decadence. In one sequence, Spandau Ballet are shown in their live New York debut: in May, 1981 at a club called the Underground. I was there, covering Spandau Ballet for their first story in Rolling Stone. The venue was new but less than romantic – a midtown basement. But the group worked the small stage like a catwalk with a small, potent set list drawn from their first album, Journeys to Glory, and much closer in its crisp tension and funk momentum to the Chic-meets-Sex Pistols ideal of hairspray brethren Duran Duran. Someone – most likely their manager and Soul Boys producer Steve Dagger – had the prescience to film the moment. But that faith – that Spandau Ballet were destined for more than the dole, as Hadley reiterated in the shiny 1983 gallop "Gold" ("You're indestructible/Always believing/You are gold") – is the straight-line theme running through Soul Boys. The middle third of the movie is all good times and smiles: boyhood friends running across beaches and through champagne like a Rat Pack in Cossack boots and feathered berets. That much fun can't go on indefinitely. Still, the breakup in 1990 – a combined product of exhaustion, mounting tensions over Gary's control of the writing and the Kemps' defection to acting – is not milked for extra tears. Even after Hadley, Keeble and Norman sued Gary in the Nineties for royalties and lost, it was Gary who largely initiated the 2009 reunion. Memo to the Smiths: There are no bridges so badly burnt that they can't be rebuilt, if you really want it.
You go Gaga!

I've had a terrible sore throat, earache, low fever, cough and fatigue for over a week. Saw a doctor and she said it was a virus. You'd think it would be gone by now. Am I going to die?
I will wait until 1pm, just because. But I do not want to!
I have a tooth ache which I took a pill for BUT I feel so depressed today. Nothing bad even happened. (except the tooth)
With Furious 7 out, the Avengers, Jurassic Park, Spectre, the Terminators. This is a good year to head to the movies.

Clinton announces her bid for POTUS 2016. You go, girl!
Such a great film. All the women did a fabulous job. Sandy Dennis is mesmerizing. There is an interesting interview with the playwright as a bonus feature. I get the impression that he may be the reason it took so long to finally be released. It seemed as though the interview was insisted on as a way to get his complaints about the B-way version which he did not like.
Starts tonight on FX. Be sure to be there. It's your duty. Your country needs you. We Soviets must win this war.
Jeez but I hate local news sometimes.
The old thread is full, so we start anew!
I seriously hate everything about the god-forsaken place. Its crappy American-wannabe stores, its garage sale-like "businesses". Do you ever wish you were not here.
I'd like to hear from people who have had PRK eye surgery (similar to LASIK) and what their results were.
I've tried catnip. Any other ideas?
Any psychiatrists on board? So she's in a manic phase of her bipolar disorder. My question is why does she walk in those weird patterns and not take the award from the presenter.
I have to say, both Jade and her daughter seem like grounded people. The baby boy, Ray, is really very cute. The great grandchild resembles Bianca.
I always wonder when I see or hear people calling Angelina Jolie ''Angie!'' or Rihanna ''RiRi!'' or Beyonce ''Bey!'' ...why? Does this create a false feeling in that person that they are ''close'' to the entertainer?
Totally hilarious that Carol Burnett portrayed a sexually voracious and desired woman!! Liz Taylor was quite wonderful in this. As a wee gayling of maybe 7 years old I recall watching this on HBO somehow... It's campy and fun, with some great moments and good chemistry between the leads. This appears to be one of the earliest films who filmed in Canada, and the winter sure looks bleak!

She's really overcompensating about trying to be a good mother. oh and this: Jeffrey laughs and says “Mommy pop me on my butt!” In what alternate universe did butt popping become a fun activity.
I'm assuming this means "hot" as in warm room, warm hands and not the other "hot" which would have trouble being legit here in Tulsa anyway.
Who would you choose to be your beard or merkin?
Does anyone else find this insulting? When I meet a gay man and he makes an especially pointed reference in the beginning of the conversation to "my partner," I always want to say, "Did you really think I was going to ask you out or something?"
Tell us about a sexual encounter when, afterwards, even you thought, "''damn I really am a whore."
The tapping continues...
He's so cute and had a sexy video years ago. Every time I I watch Scary Movie 3 (which im doing now) i get so aroused at him.
Stop it. Now.
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!

Millions of pounds spent and thousands of mourners to see a 500 year old dead king being buried. Eccentric, ridiculous, vulgar and oh, so British. It adds to the fun that you're honouring a murderer and usurper, as well. "More than 500 years after his death in battle, the mortal remains of Richard III were borne to what will be his final resting place on Sunday. The lead-lined, golden-oak coffin of the last Plantagenet king left the University of Leicester, whose archaeologists found him buried under a council car park in 2012, beginning a last, symbolic journey through the Leicestershire countryside to Bosworth battlefield where, in 1485, the king fell to Henry Tudor. The monarch was due to return to the city – to its medieval boundary of Bow Bridge – before processing to Leicester cathedral for 6pm atop a horse-drawn gun carriage. He will lie at the cathedral, guarded night and day, until his reburial on Thursday. Crowds formed, captivated by the extraordinary story of the last English king to die in battle and the rediscovery of his remains. At noon the cortege left the university, where the monarch’s remains have been studied and guarded since being excavated in August 2012. As the archaeologists and academics bade him farewell, white roses were laid on the coffin. The university’s flag had been replaced for the day with Richard’s standard. The coffin, which was seen in public for the first time during the procession, was made by the king’s 16th great-nephew, a Canadian cabinet-maker called Michael Ibsen, who descended from Richard’s older sister, Anne of York, and whose DNA helped identify the remains. Inside the inner casket, the bones were laid out and packed into position with English wool and linen, and covered with an unbleached linen cloth, hand-embroidered with his white rose and white boar symbols. The remains had been carefully laid there in a private ceremony at the university a week ago. The procession was organised so that Richard Buckley, the project’s lead archeologist and legal guardian of the remains until he hands over responsibility at the door of the cathedral, could keep the coffin in his sight at all times."
The woman writes "Recently, a “man” claiming to be transgender, who had not yet begun physical treatments, was permitted by our local Y to use the women’s locker room. There are no secure change rooms. The person they allowed in was not courteous and stared at me while I struggled out of a wet bathing suit. He was naked, had an erection and playfully asked ‘do you come here often?’" She said the incident happened “a couple of years ago” in the late afternoon in the women’s locker room of the Toronto Y on Sheppard Ave. She said she shared her concerns with the Y manager at the time but felt she was not taken seriously. She said the branch manager contacted her in the fall after she sent her letter and she was again contacted by a senior executive of the Y following publication of the Star column. YMCA spokesman Celecia Partap confirmed this week that the Y did receive a similar letter in the fall from “a former female member” about an incident that was “historical in nature.” Partap said the Y has no record of any formal complaint about the incident the woman described and that the general manager of the Y where the woman used to swim had no recollection of a past complaint.
What with the Tsarnaev sentencing phase upcoming, it's all over the news.
Most clubs have them, dreadful old men who stare for hours playing with themselves trying to get action going. NYSC at 80th still has 3 of the most chronic. Despite multiple police calls they never seem to catch these men in the act. King Troll, you all know him Bart Simpson grey hair, purple birthmark on his head. Baby Bird, constantly moving mouth like a baby bird waiting to be fed, his 'Bill' seeking cock. Crooked tooth troll who grabs ankles. These 3 are responsible for more members leaving than any other trolls, why do they have to catch them in the act? Anyone have a good troll replellant?
I hadn't seen this cheesy '60s movie for 30 years... when I was a kid I used to watch it every time it was on TV. Someone uploaded the whole thing to YouTube and it's even better than I remembered! The spectacularly untalented Susan Gordon plays a teenager who was in a "convent" for years after witnessing the death of her glamorous mother (Zsa Zsa Gabor) in a house fire. In the meantime, her father (a very hammy Don Ameche) has married her glamorous governess (Martha Hyer) -- and since Susan has inherited the estate, she's in big trouble! (Susan Gordon seems to be channeling Pia Zadora at times.) The oil painting of Zsa Zsa that dripped blood from the neck was the biggest thing I remembered... but the last 10 minutes had a psychosexual twist that went way over my head as a child. It's a complete DL movie -- and it was shot at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills (site of "Dead Ringer" with Bette Davis). Does anyone else remember this camp fest?

She writes the Financial Times of London a letter explaining the iconic photo. Sir, I write with reference to “Lunch with the FT: Barry Diller” by Matthew Garrahan, published in the Financial Times on March 7 2015. I hold the Financial Times in great esteem and am a loyal reader of your publication. So I was surprised when I read the inaccurate and distressing assertion: “The opening night [of Studio 54] Bianca Jagger came in on a white horse,” he continues, sipping his tea, then motioning to one of the waiting staff for some sweetener. Nobody batted an eyelid at the horse? “No! It was pretty to look at.” I would like to set the record straight. Mick Jagger and I walked into Studio 54. Steve Rubell had apparently seen a picture in a magazine of me riding a white horse in Nicaragua and he thought it would be a clever idea to bring a horse to the club as a birthday surprise for me. It was a beautiful white horse that reminded me of mine and I made the foolish decision to get on it for a few minutes. The photographed image went around the world, giving rise to the fable — that I arrived at Studio 54 on a white horse. No doubt you will agree with me that it is one thing to, on the spur of the moment, get on a horse in a nightclub, but it is quite another to ride in on one. As an environmentalist and an animal rights defender, I find the insinuation that I would ride a horse into a nightclub offensive. I often ask myself how people visualise this fable . . . Where was Mick during this time? Was he holding the reins and pulling me and the horse through the streets of New York, or following submissively behind me!? I hope that you can understand the difference between “coming in” on a horse and getting on one. Hopefully this letter will finally put this Studio 54 fable — out to pasture. Bianca Jagger

I like binge watching and have seen the ones that get a lot of publicity like House of Cards and OITNB. I would love to have new show to binge on. Anything on Starz? Amazon? Netflix... What have you enjoyed that went under the publicity radar?
Let's see if someone actually guesses correctly! The winner will be touted up and down as a celebrity in their own right here on Datalounge. If you want to make up a screen name or fake name do so before submitting so we know who the winner is and can congratulate them. I'll go first. My guess is.....Justine Jenner.

Four visiting Swedish tourists who happen to be police officers, stepped up and stopped a violent fight between two men on the 6 train on Wednesday. The incident was notable for its lack of escalation, and lack of bullets, tazers, wisecracks, insulting sarcasm, chokeholds and a lack of police body flab. New Yorkers were startled and confused by the officers professionalism, people skills and the absence of unnecessary police violence. ---------- While on their way to watch “Les Miserables,” two homeless men started fighting on an uptown 6 train in the middle of rush hour, DNAinfo reports. Witnesses told the news site that the train’s conductor was aware of the fight and remained in the Bleecker Street station, asking over the loudspeakers if there were any police officers on board. “They were lying on the floor, one on top of the other,” said Stockholm officer Makrus Åsberg, 25. “We got to make sure that nobody gets hurt . . . try to calm them down without hurting them. The four Scandinavian cops pulled off the man they described as the aggressor, and restrained him while comforting the other, who was bleeding from the mouth and wasn’t able to defend himself. “One of the guys tried to wrestle us so (we) wrestled him to the floor until the police came,” Stockholm rookie officer Samuel Kvarzell told the reporters. “They were screaming.” Face-down on the subway floor, the man continued to scream and struggle as the men restrained him, urging him to remain calm. Police arrived at the scene and the four officers were able to resume their vacation. Many applauded their quick, effective response, while others focused on their good looks. Video below
I'd forgotten how funny this was. Craig Ferguson is a good actor.
Just looking for a ride... going my way?

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.
And why? Who would you like to meet?
He is by mine. I wonder what it would be like to meet him.
I'm ashamed I preordered.
Pictures are worth a thousands words, aren't they? Well, here's a pic of the boy. I'm probably willing to go to a great deal of trouble to be with him because he seems gentle and kind. You?
Was close friends with Tori Spelling, but now isn't; was Jenni Garth's Maid of Honor but now they're feuding; dated the actor who committed suicide from Suddenly Susan... What's her deal?
I get the fact that some people may find this guy unattractive but what he lacks in appearances, he makes up for in personality. Wouldn't you say? If you reply yes or no, please elaborate as to why.
Lots of friends, part time job; government loan; straight A's. Not too shabby looking. Is this what you would call a good college life?
I really like this guy, and at the same time, I feel deeply envious of his life. The way it's going. He's got more friends than I do; has a social life, works, gets good grades in school. Meanwhile, I slaved away at school, had maybe 1 friend. Couldn't even hang out with that one friend because of schoolwork. Work was out of the question. Ya. And he's better looking than me. I like him, but I feel deeply envious of his life. Honestly. He probably has never been bullied in his life, either.
I keep hearing all of these stories of people being priced out of NYC. That rents and mortgages are skyrocketing for people who make a good living, but not in the one percenter category. So what's the real story? Are you still paying your rent/mortage? Can you still live a good life and save a few pennies each month?
Spent $150k to look like a Ken doll. Anybody had him?
Why was the public so fascinated by her?
Bearding is morally indefensible. There is no reason for anyone living in a modern country to beard. There is no reason for any gay celebrity or public figure worth millions of dollars to pretend to be something they're not in 2015. People should come out when they're ready, but blatantly lying or pretending to be in a relationship with someone of the opposite gender is wrong. Bearding for the sake of your career is an insult to gay people who live in countries where they could be sentenced to life in prison or executed. Visibility matters. There are young people who are isolated from other gay people. If their families are homophobic, they probably have no way of contacting a gay relative for support. They feel completely hopeless and alone. A celebrity that they happen to admire coming out of the closet could be a huge sense of relief for them because they finally have someone with whom to identify. It could be the catalyst a person needs to finally accept their sexuality. It could be that push to inspire a person to come out to their family and friends. Admit that you were bearding. Admit your manager/agents pressured you to stay closeted and beard to appear straight for the sake of your career. Be completely honest. Real fans and the gay community will support you. You could be saving a life or helping someone not feel so depressed and alone. Ignore opinions of bigoted troglodytes. Why would you want such ignorant and hateful fans anyway? “I would like to get rid of the homophobes, sexists, and racists in our audience. I know they’re out there and it really bothers me.” — Kurt Cobain It's possible that you could also change some prejudiced minds. It may be a gradual process, but eventually a prejudiced person could become more accepting of gay people. If someone can let go of their erroneous preconceived notions then they will be more likely to treat gay people with respect. If this person no longer exhibits homophobic behavior, it will be easier for a gay family member or friend to find the courage to come out to them. If you want to give back, you can do so with two words, "I'm gay." Come out when you're ready and on your own terms, but come out. Telling your story could have more of a positive impact on people than you think. We still have a long way to go. Fight for equality in marriage. People are still fired, expelled from school, denied jobs, and denied adopting children for being gay. There are gay people who are harassed and beaten. There are young gay people who are disowned by their families. Many of these disowned young people end up homeless. There are ignorant people trying to deny us service and medical care. Be a voice for those who are in situations where they can't stand up for themselves. Even if you're not ready to come out, if you're "bearding," stop bearding now. Bearding and deliberately lying about one's sexuality is selfish and hinders our progress toward acceptance and equality. Bearding is an unnecessary charade that needs to go extinct
I have been going to gyms for years. The fat people stay fat; the muscular stay muscular. No one's body actually changes. I only know of two people whom I saw get thinner and more muscular, but it was obvious steroids (or something like that) were involved because it happened pretty quickly.
Now we know why: [quote]Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul's hair has been the subject of frequent speculation, but we can officially put the rumors to rest. Paul recently confirmed to Business Insider that he cuts his own hair. Sources close to Paul also confirm that his hair is his own, and not a hairpiece, as is often speculated. Good job, Business Insider!

Your opinion of this term/phrase that people, mainly conservatives, love to use.
The cracker writes a letter.
I like to think they're boy-next-door types who got off the bus and were swept into that world before they knew what was happening.
I was always mystified why she's still hated so much by so many people, because by now almost no one believes she was responsible for breaking up the Beatles, and you would also think most people have felt pretty bad for her for watching her husband get murdered before her eyes. But then my friends this week showed me this clip (which is apparently pretty infamous) of her "joining in" (and ruining) what would otherwise be a great once-in-a-lifetime jam session with John Lennon and his idol, Chuck Berry, as they sing "Memphis, Tennessee," by making weird screeching noises at random moments, I instantly understood why. Many of you will have seen this before, but it will be new for many of you too.
She and Benjamin Walker are splitting. Now I'm glad I never bothered to send a gift.
I've just finished watching a bio-drama on Yves Saint Laurent and I've decided I need a glamorous affect for my writing this evening.
I told her she looks like Amanda Bynes and she didn't know who that was, so I said, "She's that girl who was in the remake of Hairspray & who recently went schizophrenic?" She didn't know what schizophrenic was either, so I explained to her that it's a mental illness where you break from reality and start seeing & hearing voices and thing. She goes, "OH--I don't believe in that stuff!" I laughed and said, "You don't believe in mental illness? What do you attribute those symptoms to then?" She kind of rolled her eyes and again said she doesn't believe in it & goes, "I don't even want to get started." Huh!? The rest of the time I just sat there wondering to myself whether schizophrenia being a 'thing' is even up for debate? And then I thought of Tom Cruise and began to wonder if this chick is a Scientologist.
I love the stories about Dante Satorious marrying the surgeon and the Margaret Rudin story who lived large in Vegas and ended up being caught living in a rented room somewhere in the NE and being recognized by a guy delivered a pizza to her room. She had grandmother-type demeanor. Any other great stories?
This show used to be really good, and even as recently as last year was slightly interesting. But it's a massive shitfest now. And Derek is such an asshole I can't imagine any frau wanting him. This is like ER - all the shit that could possibly surprise anyone has already happened.
The Weinstein Company plans to turn Truman Capote's In Cold Blood into a TV event series. Originally released as a four-part serial in The New Yorker in 1965, it was then put together into a single book that would go on to be considered one of the seminal works of the 20th century. Telling the story of the 1959 murder, In Cold Blood seems to fit perfectly in today's true-crime boom. In Cold Blood has been adapted a couple times since its release, including a 1996 miniseries starring Anthony Edwards. Most recently, two acclaimed films, 2005's Capote and 2006's Infamous, have come out telling the story of Capote as he worked on the piece.
. . . really?
Too bad he's such a turd.
As the Supreme Court prepares to take up same-sex marriage next week, conservative scholars have produced a last-ditch argument to keep the scourge of homosexual unions from spreading across the land: Gay marriage kills. They’re saying that legalizing same-sex marriage will cause 900,000 abortions. The logic is about as obvious as if they had alleged that raising the minimum wage would increase the frequency of hurricanes. If anything, you’d think that more same-sex marriages would mean more adoptions. But comes now Gene Schaerr, unsuccessful lawyer for Utah in that state’s case against same-sex marriages, to file an amicus brief with the Supreme Court on behalf of “100 scholars of marriage.” “On the surface, abortion and same-sex marriage may seem unrelated,” Schaerr acknowledged in a post on the Heritage Foundation Web site in advance of a presentation he made to the conservative think tank Monday. But “the two are closely linked in a short and simple causal chain.” To wit: Legalizing same-sex marriage devalues marriage and causes fewer heterosexual couples to marry, which leads to a larger number of unmarried women, who have abortions at higher rates than married women. As a result, Schaerr wrote, “nearly 900,000 more children of the next generation would be aborted as a result of their mothers never marrying. This is equal to the entire population of the cities of Sacramento and Atlanta combined.” Case closed! Or at least it would be, if Schaerr’s “causal chain” were real. He freely acknowledged that he had no cause-and-effect proof when I asked him about it at Heritage on Monday. “It is still too new to do a rigorous causation analysis using statistical methods,” he admitted, saying that he had found only a decline in marriage rates in states that had legalized same-sex marriage (in fact, marriage rates have declined overall). “The brief doesn’t even attempt to say conclusively that this reduction in marriage rates has been the result of adopting same-sex marriage,” Schaerr said, though there are “theoretical reasons” such causation might occur.
Loved the footage of Frank and Mia.
I want to do a poll to find out if it's just 2 or 3 posters talking to each other about them.
So how many of you are doing the Apple Watch thing? Will your pre-order be available on Friday the 24th? Which model did you get? Plan to get? Was the fitness-tracking component a factor in your decision? Were you able to try it on before buying? I'm actually curious,as I considered one for a hot minute, but I'm sticking with my chronograph and my fitness band.
He's hot. It's that deep voice and those eyes. He got veneers sometime in the last year or so, but he really didn't need them.
Marry, date, whatever. I''ve never met a Larry and Larry.
So I was driving down an elevated road that crosses a bayou and I saw this huge, armored thing lumbering across the road. It was huge with spike looking things on its back. All anyone could do is stop and wait for it to cross because if anyone had hit it, it would have blown out a few tires. I didn't realize they got that big. It looked a tank. Anyone ever been up close to one? Very prehistoric looking.
big of a deal and that I might be sent secondary inspection to ascertain my US citizenship and given some non complanciance paper work. Does anyone have any experiences with this type of situation?

Best Matt Damon movie ever. Agree or disagree?
Watching this tonight instead of Nerd Prom. Kim Greist is not a good actor. Ellen Barkin was Gilliam's first choice. Others considered for that role -- Jamie Lee Curtis, Rebecca De Mornay, Rae Dawn Chong, Joanna Pacuła, Rosanna Arquette, Kelly McGillis, and Madonna.
For better or for worse, most of the profiles we’ve read on "Mad Men" star Christina Hendricks, 37, throw in a mention or two of her enviably curvaceous figure. Video:
My mother, in her early 70's, had a knee replacement and is still going through physical therapy. Since the surgery she has lost her appetite, isn't interested in seeing friends, and she used to enjoy a glass or two of wine but now it gives her an instant headache. When she does eat, it nauseates her and she'll have about two bites and is full and she can't sleep now and needs meds for that. This is a woman who avoided pills except for an occasional aspirin. I think the pain meds she took after the surgery did something to her even though she is not taking them now. She also has to have her other knee done when the other one is healed. Is it common to suffer depression after surgery like this? I'm very worried about her and told her to tell her doctor but I'm afraid he'll just give her more pills.
I'm guessing the answer is no! I think she actually started to believe that whole silly "greatest living actress" nonsense herself. Her mannered performances, self-gratifying awards acceptance speeches and that constant smirk on her face are becoming really painful to watch! And I think even her biggest fans can admit that some of her shenanigans (like that Walt Disney/Emma Thompson thing) were really embarassing. Can you imagine someone ripping Margaret Thatcher to shreds before giving her an award for The Iron Lady? Nope, but she can get away with something like this because she's Meryl fucking Streep. I just hope she'd go away, for a couple of years at least, so we can get some rest from her.
Anyone remember this crime from the 1980s? I saw the TV movie and read the books, but don't remember when it was actually happening.
It's incorrect. It's "So-chee." And yes, that's how the Russians pronounce it. At least there are a few correspondents on BBC World News and CNN who say it the right way.
