I have to say... the premiere was a bit underwhelming. It seemed awfully "forced" and "contrived". I hope it's just the nature of being a pilot that has to set up so much, and that future episodes are better. I'm still in.
Oh, and he has had trouble with the law already at the age of 15... Anthony Stokes, a 15-year-old boy from DeKalb County, Ga., has less than six months to live. A heart transplant would save his life. But his hospital refuses to put him on the transplant list. Why? Doctors told the family it was because of Stokes' "history of noncompliance": "They said they don’t have any evidence that he would take his medicine or that he would go to his follow-ups," his mother says). But friends tell Atlanta's WSB-TV it's "because Anthony has had low grades and trouble with the law." “The non-compliance is fabricating, because they don’t want to give him a heart,” family friend Mack Major told Thomas. “This is unacceptable because he must lose his life because of a non-compliance.” “They've given him a death sentence,” said Christine Young Brown, president of the Newton Rockdale County SCLC. The hospital says it is "continuing to work with this family and looking at all options regarding this patient's health care." Transplant lists typically have strict guidelines for potential additions, and patients who are considered a serious risk for non-compliance—i.e., those who might refuse or be inconsistent with follow-up care—may be denied space. But Stokes is 15. Georgia allows its residents to seal or expunge their juvenile records, enshrining into law the principle that underage "trouble with the law" is not a past indicator of future behavior—certainly not any more than "bad grades" might be. If the government of Georgia is willing to give Stokes a chance at a full and free adult life, why can't Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta?
The grandson of J. Paul Getty was found dead Tuesday and TMZ has learned and his ex-girlfriend is currently being detained as a possible witness/suspect. Cops tell us they are handing this as a death "under suspicious circumstances." We're told he suffered a traumatic injury to the rectal area and paramedics found significant bleeding. Andrew Getty was found in the bathroom of his L.A. home at around 2 PM. Law enforcement sources tell us the ex-GF called 911 to report cardiac arrest. Our sources say Andrew and his ex-girlfriend have a storied history with the LAPD. Cops have been to his residence 31 times, mostly for domestic disturbances. Our sources say they have both frequently been under the influence of drugs during the police visits. We're told the drugs cops found in the past were prescriptions. As for their relationship, we're told he has a restraining order against her and she has been placed under a 5150 psychiatric hold in the past, after injuring cops when they responded to the house. We're also told she's allegedly broken into Andrew's house on numerous occasions. Andrew's dad, Gordon Getty, is one of the richest men in the U.S. Forbes put Gordon's wealth at $2.1 billion ... the family was listed as the 54th richest ... worth an estimated $5 billion.
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.

I know I'm very late as it's been off for over 5 years. But I recently started enjoying clips on Youtube. I thought if anyone knows anything, it's you guys. What was your favorite storyline? What behind the scene gossip have you heard? What are the actors doing now (how do they support themselves)? Could it have been saved? Just tell me everything, sweeties.
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.

Who has visited the Lebanese capital? Were you there during its heyday as the "Paris of the Middle East"? What about since the civil war ended? The U.S. State Dept. advises against Americans travelling to any part of Lebanon. I checked the British official travel advisories.

1. There’s more than one theory about where Easter got its name. The word Easter has been linked to Eostre, an Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring and new life. 2. Easter has always been tied to the moon. In 325, the Roman Emperor Constantine I gathered bishops from around his empire at the Council of Nicaea and decided that Easter would be observed on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the spring equinox. 3. Easter is the reason why we use the Gregorian calendar. Eastern Orthodox churches still use the Julian calendar to calculate religious holidays. As a result, while most of the Western world will celebrate Easter on April 5 this year, Orthodox churches are celebrating on April 12. 4. The Pilgrims despised Easter celebrations. The Puritans scorned religious holidays like Easter and Christmas, claiming they had pagan roots and lacked a scriptural basis. 5. The Easter Bunny barely scratches the surface of this holiday's traditions. In Spain, some Christians don cloaks and pointed hoods to participate in eerie night-time processions.
I had a very vivid dream last night and woke up very excited about it and then realised it was just a dream. I have never visited the US and in the dream I had won a competition when taking out a home insurance policy and had won a trip to the US with $10 thousand in spending money. I was able to pick 3 cities to visit for 1 week each. Which cities should I have picked? I might even do this now!
“There’s been shameless rhetoric about my state and this law and its intention all over the internet,” Mike Pence said. “People are trying to make it about one particular issue, and now you’re doing that as well.” “The issue here is: is tolerance a two-way street or not?” Pence said. “There’s a lot of talk about tolerance in this country having to do with people on the left. Here Indiana steps forward to protect the constitutional rights and privileges of freedom of religion for people of faith in our state, and this avalanche of intolerance that’s been poured on our state is outrageous.” Pence reiterated that he will not make LGBT citizens a protected class. “It doesn’t have anything to do with this law,” he objected. “This isn’t about individual rights or preferential rights for anyone.” Pence said the business industry backlash, which already includes the collapse of a deal between Indianapolis and Angie’s List, was due to the “gross mischaracterization” of the law. “Frankly, some of the media coverage of this has been shameless and reckless,” Pence said. Stephanopoulos finally asked if Pence thought it should be legal to discriminate against gays or lesbians. “Come on!” Pence responded. “Hoosiers don’t believe in discrimination.” Stephanopoulos reiterated the question. “You’re trying to make this issue about something else,” Pence said. “I signed the bill. We’re going to explain to people who don’t understand it.” See link for video

It was wonderful. We were just so in sync. I mean, who knows you better than your brother, right? We knew just what to do with each other's bodies. The right spots to stimulate. And there was complete and total trust. He gave it to me smooth and deep, and instinctively knew where my pleasure spot was. I took every drop of his hot load. I'm not one to cum from blow jobs, but he fucking made me do it. And he swallowed every drop. I love him more now than ever before. Nobody has made me feel thus good before and no one ever could. My entire body is a limp noodle right now, I am so relaxed and at peace.

Meanwhile, poor little Sweatpea waits in the background ... Whilst the possibilities aren't endless, they should be hilarious in any case.
To always be put on a pedestal as a hunk is slightly demeaning. It really is and it’s in the same way as it is for women. When an actor is seen only for her physical beauty it can be quite offensive. Well, it’s not just men that can be inappropriate sexually; women can be as well. I’m in a successful TV show in a kind of leading man way and it can sometimes feel like your art is being put to one side for your sex appeal. And I don’t like that. In this position you get asked a lot, ‘Do you like being a heart-throb? Do you like being a hunk?’ Well, my answer is, ‘That’s not what I got into it for.’” — Game of Thrones star Kit Harington lamenting his sad, sad fate in a new interview
An Italian grandmother has accidentally poisoned herself and three children with hot chocolate that went out of date 15 years ago. The 77-year-old woman, named as Mrs Rosetta, reportedly found the expired sachets at home and mixed them into warm milk as a treat for her two grandchildren and their friend. She also enjoyed some of the hot drink, along with her partner and son, Il Mattino reported. Her partner was the first to feel the effects, suffering sickness and diarrhoea, before the whole group had to be hospitalised with food poisoning symptoms.

The New York Times .... BREAKING NEWS\tFriday, March 27, 2015 7:55 AM EDT Germanwings Co-Pilot Hid Medical Condition From Employer, Prosecutors Say Documents showing that Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot who is believed to have deliberately crashed a Germanwings jet into the French Alps on Tuesday, had a medical condition that he hid from his employer, prosecutors in Düsseldorf, Germany, said on Friday. The documents, which were found in his home, included a torn-up doctor’s note allowing him time off from work because of an illness. The German investigators said they had not found a suicide note or “any indication of a political or religious” nature among the documents secured in Mr. Lubitz’s apartment. “However, documents were secured containing medical information that indicates an illness and corresponding treatment by doctors,” prosecutors said in a statement.
What did Cheets do??
This will end the debate, once and for all! TV URBAN LEGEND: Michael Landon pulled a prank on an actress during her “Little House on the Prairie” death scene, resulting in her seemingly using a baby as a battering ram. Michael Landon’s long-running television series “Little House on the Prairie” (based on Laura Ingalls Wilder’s classic books about growing up on the frontier) has a reputation as a throwback to more wholesome times (reruns of the show air on both the Hallmark Channel and INSP, formerly known as The Inspiration Network). While that is certainly true to a certain extent, that also overshadows just how dark the series could be. Just looking at the Ingalls, Charles and Caroline lost a son in the first season, their oldest daughter Mary went blind and later had a miscarriage. That was on top of the plagues and droughts that seemingly popped up every other season. There was also the infamous episode in which a teenage girl is raped by a sociopath dressed as a mime. Heck, even the series finale, as I noted in an old TV Legends Revealed, ended with the town of Walnut Grove being blown to smithereens! So the show had a lot of dark moments. Likely none more dark, however, than Season 6’s “May We Make Them Proud,” which aired as a special two-hour episode during February sweeps in 1980. In the episode, the Ingalls’ adopted son Albert sneaks a smoke on a pipe with his friend in the basement of the School for the Blind. When they’re discovered, they pretend not to be smoking and leave the basement. However, the lit pipe is forgotten, and sets fire to the entire school! By this point in the show’s run, Mary had given birth to her first child with her husband Adam, and the three of them were all living in the School for the Blind. The fire spreads through the school, forcing Mary and Adam to lead the students to safety. However, in an odd – and, frankly, not particularly believable — twist, neither thinks to make sure their baby is safe. Instead, visiting family friend Alice Garvey (played by Hersha Parady) goes to save the baby, only to be trapped with the infant in the bedroom. She tries to break through a window, but it is too late, and she and the baby are burned to death. That alone is horrific enough to make the episode stand out in the minds of “Little House on the Prairie” viewers, but the episode is also known for the oddity of the scene in which Garvey breaks the window. It looks as if she’s using the baby as a battering ram! A legend that spun out of this episode is that Michael Landon, who was a noted practical joker, messed with the glass, leading to Parady to hit it harder and forcing her to seemingly use the fake baby to do it. While it’s true Landon was a big prankster, the scene in “May We Make Them Proud” utilized actual fire; there were firefighters on set for the controlled burn. There was no way Landon would have joked around with something like that. However, there is a little truth to the legend, in the sense that the glass was difficult to break, and that is why it looks like Parady is smashing the glass with the baby. As Parady recalled: One thing was that they did not rig the windows to break easily and I’m not, as Michael Landon pointed out a lot, a meek, delicate woman, so when I try to bust something, I usually succeed! It was Michael himself who first mentioned that it looked like I was trying to use Mary’s baby as a battering ram to bust the window! So because they’d forgotten to “break away” the windows, I was determined to get out whatever the cost! It’s very possible they chose not to use “break away” glass in the windows because Parady was strong, and was known for occasionally breaking props, like the Garveys’ water pump. So it’s possible they used stronger glass, but I don’t know for sure. In any event, the change in the glass IS why Parady had to hit it harder, therefore making it look like she was using the baby.

I guess I'm late to the party. I'd always heard good things about this show, and I like Elmore Leonard, so this week I sat down and watched the entire first season on Amazon Prime streaming. I must say I enjoyed it. It was not at all what I expected, however. I thought it would be all about catching moonshiners in the woods, but there was hardly anything about that-- and one episode was even set in California. I find it odd that they based it on a short story--did the story just provide the basic characters? It took me a while to figure out the Crowders, since so many of them had similar names: Bo, Bowman, Boyd. I'm ready for Seasons 2, 3, and 4. What am I in for? (No spoilers, please!)
It seems to be heading for "I'm not running a hotel here!" and "Not without my daughter" levels.
I was driving to work last week, when i slowed for a school zone. I saw a tiny, tiny young girl walking her two kids (I hope they were siblings but I doubt it) to school. She's holding the baby, and the toddler is holding her hand. The toddler/pre-K was sucking his thumb. The baby was sucking her thumb. And the tiny mom was sucking HER thumb. All walking zombielike toward the school. I suddenly felt so sad, like when a teeny tiny black kitty living at my best friend's apartment complex showed up heavily pregnant.
I have a chest infection and the ER doctor prescribed antibiotics and told me to start them immediately and then get chest x-rays and see my doctor for the results in two days. Problem is all the x-ray places, and my doctors office, will be closed closed until Monday because of Easter. Can I start the antibiotics on Saturday and get x-rays on Monday or am I going to die if I don't start them immediately?

I am a pretty neat guy and I mop my kitchen floors and wood floor 1 or 2 times every other week. I do wash my windows if they need it. I like to live in a clean house but my old house cleaner was charging $200/2x a month for the two of them to clean. I thought that was way too much so I have been doing things myself. It's not that hard but I can't help but feel I don't do as good a job even though I try hard. Any tips from those who care about a nice looking home?

The film producer Harvey Weinstein was questioned by the police on Saturday after a 22-year-old woman accused him of touching her inappropriately during a meeting in Manhattan, according to two law enforcement officials. Mr. Weinstein has not been charged with any wrongdoing and, after being located by detectives, voluntarily accompanied the police to be questioned about the matter. Ken Sunshine, a representative for Mr. Weinstein, said: “We are cooperating fully with the authorities and are confident that we will be fully vindicated. We will have no further comment.” The woman said that during their meeting, Mr. Weinstein asked her if her breasts were real and then groped her, an official said. The woman, whose name was not released by the police, met Mr. Weinstein for the first time on Thursday at a social event at Radio City Music Hall, where he is producing a show called “New York Spring Spectacular,” the officials said. “They did not know each other,” said one of the law enforcement officials, who agreed to speak only on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing. “She didn’t know him and he didn’t know her; there is no indication she knew who he was.” The two exchanged emails, and on Friday the woman went to meet Mr. Weinstein at his offices at the Tribeca Film Center, at 375 Greenwich Street in Lower Manhattan, the official said. It appears the two met in private, according to the official, and it was during that meeting that she claims he touched her inappropriately. After the meeting, the official said, the woman immediately went to the police. She was interviewed by detectives from the Police Department’s Special Victims Squad. On Saturday, detectives located Mr. Weinstein and he voluntarily accompanied them to the First Precinct police station around 5 p.m. to be interviewed, the official said. After a period, Mr. Weinstein asked to consult with a lawyer, and he was allowed to leave. “He talked for a while and at one point he stopped talking and decided to retain a lawyer,” the official said. The matter is now in the hands of investigators with the office of the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., officials said. The district attorney’s office declined to comment.

"You're too short for that gesture" is a come-down and reality check. "All right, Mr. DeMille" without the rest being necessary pops up.

Brit star went all in for the first three shows but viewers seem to be suffering from fatigue as numbers fall James Corden's Late Late Show was a massive success on it's debut night but after just three days it looks like viewers are switching off. Figures for the comedian's US chat show stint have slumped by 310,000 according to preliminary stats. On the launch night of the Late Late Show the new host averaged a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.66 million viewers overall - the largest audience for the show on a Monday since November 2011 with Craig Ferguson as host. But by Wednesday the CBS show had suffered a decline with just 1.35 million viewers tuning in and an average of 0.3 rating in adults 18-49. According to the Daily Star CBS bosses are said to have given him a month to get things right. Corden has acknowledged it might take a while to win over America, as most viewers up late already have a favorite host and ratings for the daypart tend to move at a glacial pace. Another hurdle for Corden is that he comes to latenight a virtual unknown in the States. Corden started out with small TV roles and shot to fame as the co-creator, writer and star of British sitcom Gavin & Stacey. In recent years he's had more of a presence in the US, winning a Tony for the play One Man, Two Guvnors, which had transferred from the UK, and then last year starred alongside Meryl Steep in the musical film Into the Woods.

It was a horror classic when it first appeared, but it's become less and less of a cult favorite over the years, which is too bad. It's beautifully photographed (especially underwater), and the creature's inexplicable sexual attraction to Julia Adams (who is a different species--and it doesn't even look like the Gill-man has a working penis to inseminate her with) is part of why its so great.

About a week I downloaded software that had malware on it. It was putting tons of ads on various different websites that I go to, including DL. Not sure how they do that without getting the permission of the company that owns the site, but whatever. But at any rate, I quickly uninstalled it. But the ads were still there, so someone said to use malwareBytes anti-malware and anti-exploit to scan the entire drive, which should take several hours. So I got that and scanned the drive, but it only took about 10 minutes. The ads are still there, even though it is running in the background and periodically displays a message saying it has prevented something from loading or running. So what else can I do to get rid of these ads? Some are popup and some are in the page itself.
What's the quality of their food and stores? I hear the prices are really good. Second question- if you do shop there are you on public assistance?
Here's a brand new thread just for 2015. I'll begin. Tax Troll - The tax guy I've been using for years died recently and I couldn't find a new one that I liked, so decided to try TurboTax. I have my previous years' returns which were done professionally and my situation is not particularly complex. Question: Do you generally find that TurboTax performs calculations, including the worksheets such as the AMT, correctly with all the tax tables, "if greater than" multiply by .25 and such?
By request and I have little to say at this precise moment myself, but here's the Forehead of Doom outside Number 10.
He looks JUST like him in this photo. (But does he have ten pounds of cock like Frank did?)
I technically live in Hollywood but commute to West Hollywood pretty often. Aside from the many restaurants and shops, West Hollywood doesn't seem like that great of a place to live. It's kind of soulless. And parking is more ridiculous than any other neighborhood I've seen so far. I'd only live here if I managed to get a really good deal on a place.
There are other accent choices like, UK, U.S., Australian, and Canadian. English with a Trinidad accent would be so cool.
What are some of the most interesting or disturbing things you have overheard. This thread was inspired by my male neighbour yell at his wife one night "i do love you more than the double ended dildo"... they broke up soon after.

I remember seeing ads for this when I was a young teen circa mid to late 70's. Who knew that Ryan Phillipe and our own little ghoul, Guiliana Rancic, are alumni. I always thought it was some kind of bullshit racket but I guess it's a real thing.
kansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s (R) reported efforts to attract the tech industry to his state are at risk of being undermined by the advancement of a “religious freedom” bill. Talking Points Memo reported on Friday that Apple CEO Tim Cook criticized state House Bill 1228 online, comparing it unfavorably to Indiana’s Senate Bill 101. “Apple is open for everyone,” Cook wrote. “We are deeply disappointed in Indiana’s new law and calling on Arkansas Gov. to veto the similar #HB1228.” The Arkansas measure, known as the “Conscience Protection Act,” passed in the state Senate on Friday in a 24-7 vote. It now goes back to the House for passage. The bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Bob Ballinger (R), said it would impose “strict scrutiny” on the state for it to infringe upon someone’s religious beliefs. Hutchison has indicated that he would sign the bill into law. But the bill has drawn widespread criticism for opening the door to discrimination against the LGBT communities, much like Indiana’s “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” and Arizona’s Senate Bill 1062, which was ultimately vetoed by Gov. Jan Brewer (R) amid national scrutiny. The Arkansas Times reported that the head of the review site Yelp, which draws $380 million in annual revenue, Jeremy Stoppelman said his company would no longer add jobs in the state in response to HB 1228′s passage. It would be “unconscionable to imagine that Yelp would create, maintain, or expand a significant business presence in any state that encouraged discrimination by businesses against our employees, or consumers at large,” Stoppelman said in his statement. According to the Washington Post, the LGBT advocacy group Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is directly encouraging Silicon Valley businesses to avoid Arkansas. The HRC will run a full-page ad in the San Jose Mercury News on Sunday calling the state “closed for business due to discrimination” and asking readers to call on Hutchison to stop the “vicious” bill. “Arkansas wants your business, but at what price?” the ad reads. As of 2011, the Mercury News’ Sunday edition had a subscription of more than 600,000 readers. The ad can be seen in its entirety below While nearly 20 other states have enacted similar legislation, the passage of SB 101 in Indiana brought with it renewed focus on the issue. Gov. Mike Pence (R) and Indiana Republicans have seen both criticism and multiple boycott threats this week after pushing the bill through.

I can make fun cause I have one. I am also gay. So far, no one has ever expressed a connection to me directly, but I've always been self-conscious about having a lisp. How much of a correlation is there between homosexuality and this particular speech impediment? Anybody know the science of it? A little late to be asking, but is there a cure?
When Jon Stewart announced earlier this year he would be stepping down as host of The Daily Show, Comedy Central bosses were handed the unenviable task of finding his replacement. Although Stewart has put no timeframe on his departure, a shortlist of people to take over from him is already being drawn up. According to Variety, one name on that shortlist is South African comedian Trevor Noah. Noah will be no stranger to fans of the Comedy Central show, which he joined as an infrequent contributor last December. Noah, who once told an audience “I was born a crime”, would continue the trend of The Daily Show hosts starting out as relative unknowns in their early 30s.
I wonder about a lot of them. Troy Roberts(48 Hours) Clarissa Ward (news) Lara Logan (60 Minutes) Married but pings Bob Simon RIP anyone else or any knowledge ?
Driver looks like he's Middle Eastern but maybe Indian or Pakistani. Anyway, cop is being a dick.
I have glasses, and my vision's fine, but as I get older the tendency of my eyes to get squintier and squintier (that is, they crinkly up more and more) in repose seems to increase--when I smile for photos, my eyelids crinkle up so much that the eyes themselves practically disappear. I've noticed something is similar with some other men as they get older, like Russell Crowe. Is there any reason this happens? is there anything I can do about it?
It's weird because he can actually carry it off with his hairy daddy thing--he's still about the hottest guy in porn right now, with his huge muscles, his hair, his gorgeous eyes, and his quiet super-confidence. But I would also say that right now he's the fattest major gay porn star working right now.
43, never married, no mention of a GF. I think he's really cute.

I need to buy a new range and was wondering if any of you have the double-oven kind. Not the double-oven kind that goes in a wall...the free-standing kind. It had to be electric as we have no gas here at the house. Also, what are the most reliable ranges out there. Is the Kenmore brand any good?
Was he gay? He was married most of his adult life, but they separated very early into the marriage and never bothered to divorce. He was sexy in his skintight Riddler's costume.
I just canceled my HBO service, not to mention a whole bunch of channels I don't watch. Got my cable bill knocked down by almost a hundred bucks.
After all wouldn't it make more sense to have the blond in the middle, between the two brunettes? Or how about having the Asian guy in between the two Caucasian men. But it is Freddie Smith smack dab in the middle, while the other two are on either side like an after thought, Why?
And the dumbing down of America continues
In talks for Ramses role opposite Christian Bale's Moses. Joe Manganiello, of course, was not available for the role because of his commitment to "True Blood."
He starred in two homoerotic series (Route 66 and Adam-12) partnered with three of the hottest guys who ever appeared on TV: George Maharis, Glenn Corbett, and Kent McCord.
As a kid, I remember paying attention to how soft my flannel sheets were and how annoyed it was to feel tiny grains and lint in the white triangles of my jeans pockets. I loved tracing the embroidery or that braided trim on my granny's sofa pillows. Once my dad told me to stop fingering the couch. He could be a jerk.
For me, it's the rumor about Aretha Franklin's kids being fathered by her own father. Freaky.
The police, then, are essentially just bureaucrats with weapons. Their main role in society is to bring the threat of physical force—even, death—into situations where it would never have been otherwise invoked, such as the enforcement of civic ordinances about the sale of untaxed cigarettes. For most of American history, police enforcement of such regulations was not considered a major source of funding for local government. But today, in many municipalities, as much as 40% of the money governments depend on comes from the kinds of predatory policing that has become a fact of life for the citizens of Ferguson.How did this happen? Some of it, of course, has to do with populist anti-tax movements, beginning with California's Proposition 13. But much of it has happened because in recent decades, local governments have become deeply indebted to large, private financial institutions—many of the same ones that brought of us the crash of 2008. (In Ferguson, for instance, the amount of revenue collected in fines corresponds almost exactly to that shelled out to service municipal debt.) Increasingly, cities find themselves in the business of arresting citizens in order to pay creditors. But the banks themselves are using very similar methods. Most financial institutions themselves now acquire the majority of their profits from penalizing members of the general public for rule-breaking. According to a 2012 report by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, overdraft and insufficient funds fees made up sixty-one percent of bank profits from consumer checking accounts; and in 2009, J. P Morgan Chase, the biggest bank in America, reported 71% of its total profits derived from fees and penalties. Put another way, this means that the profitability of America's banks is based on knowingly creating rules so complicated that they know a significant portion of their customers won't to be able to follow them—and then punishing those customers for failing to do so. And this pattern can be observed down the line. Even our higher education system now operates largely as an engine for trapping students in permanent debt, and much of the profits to be extracted from student debtors comes from penalizing them for missed payments, postponements and defaults. Almost every institution in America—from our corporations to our schools, hospitals, and civic authorities—now seems to operate largely as an engine for extracting revenue, by imposing ever more complex sets of rules that are designed to be broken. And these rules are almost invariably enforced on a sliding scale: ever-so-gently on the rich and powerful (think of what happens to those banks when they themselves break the law), but with absolute Draconian harshness on the poorest and most vulnerable. As a result, the wealthiest Americans gain their wealth, increasingly, not from making or selling anything, but from coming up with ever-more creative ways to make us feel like criminals. This is a profound transformation, and one we barely talk about. But it is rapidly altering people's most basic conceptions of their relations with society at large. In a very real sense, the "middle class" is not an economic category, it's a social one. To be middle class is to feel that the fundamental institutional structures of society are, or should be, on your side. If you see a policeman and you feel more safe, rather than less, then you can be pretty sure you're middle class. Yet for the first time since polling began, most Americans in 2012 indicated they do not, in fact, consider themselves middle class. The Department of Justice report on the Ferguson Police Department should give us the means to finally begin to understand why. Most Americans no longer feel that the institutions of government are, or even could be, on their side. Because increasingly, in a very basic sense, they're not.
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?
As disgusting as they always were, [...] used to march proudly in every Gay Pride parade. Have they disbanded or are they just hiding out somewhere?
Victoria Grayson here, bitches.
I need advice about planting grapes. I purchased them in the fall and have kept them in the garage with minimal watering. 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? I'm also planting a 20' by 40' wildflower garden in order to attract bees and birds and increase pollination for other plants. The flowers are region-specific. I live in Zone 6.
Please take my poll.
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.

Bellagio in Vegas is supposedly the top-rated hotel/casino for customer service. What would you do if the following happened to you? Attending an event at Bellagio hotel/casino, I needed to use the Women's Restroom. In the middle of using the toilet, I saw a huge flood of DARK BROWN FECES flooding my stall from the one next to it. My brand new Satin high heels and large cloth bag were immediately covered in the filthy poop. I finished as quickly as possible and went to the bathroom sink. The smell was horrific. I told the housekeeper what had happened. She yelled at me in front of the other patrons that I should have inspected the stall before using it. She didn't care that the flood of shit happened after I was using the toilet. She ignored my request for help in cleaning my shoes and cloth bag. I had to stand in my stocking feet on the restroom floor, and clean someone else's feces off of my things. I had no choice but to wear the shoes out of the restroom, and carry the cloth bag. I then called for a shift manager. After a long wait, he finally showed up. His response? He didn't see the incident so there was nothing that he could do to help me. I would be happy to take a lie detector test to prove that what I'm saying is 100% true and accurate.
Oakland A’s pitcher and girlfriend make the save after backlash to team’s LGBT Pride event Arturo Garcia, 31 Mar 2015 at 20:03 ET Oakland Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle and his girlfriend, Eireann Dolan, stepped in to head off what she described as a negative response to the team’s first LGBT Pride Night this coming season, the San Jose Mercury News reported. Late last week, Dolan offered to buy tickets for the A’s June 17th game against San Diego, saying several season ticket holders were refusing to attend and trying to sell their tickets because they were uncomfortable with the event. “If you’d like to sell your tickets to June 17th’s LGBT Pride Night game, I will buy them from you at face value. As many as I can. No judgments. No questions asked,” she wrote on her blog. “From there, I will donate any tickets I purchase to the Bay Area Youth Center’s Our Space community for LGBTQ youth.” She revealed in the post that her biological mother is part of a same-sex couple living in San Diego. “In fact I’m starting to suspect that the Athletics focus-grouped this event idea with just my two moms and nobody else,” she wrote. “It couldn’t be any more perfectly tailored to my moms than if the team announced that NPR’s Terry Gross will also be throwing out the first pitch and there will be a free notepad giveaway on which my moms can write down all of the reasons I should have majored in something more practical in college.” On Monday, Dolan said, Doolittle agreed to match her donations up to $3,000. She also started an online fundraising campaign to purchase more seats to donate to the youth center group. The campaign surpassed its initial goal of $6,000 as of Tuesday evening, prompting her to raise the goal to $10,000. As of publication, the campaign had raised just over $8,000. In response, Dolan said, the team has opened up three additional seating sections for tickets purchased with the donations. The team said in a statement that some of the proceeds from the event will be donated to two local LGBT advocacy groups, Frameline and AIDS Project East Bay. The team will also honor former Athletic Glenn Burke, the first major-leaguer to announce that he was gay. Burke died in 1995. Dolan posted a picture online of rainbow-colored wristbands that will be available for ticket buyers sitting at field level, which can be seen below.
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.

Elton John's mother reveals how she has not spoken to her son in seven years Sheila Farebrother says Elton is only concerned with 'wealth and fame' as she blames his husband David Furnish for their fall-out 10:44AM GMT 28 Mar 2015 Elton John’s mother has revealed that she has not spoken to her son for seven years, and blames his husband for their fall-out. Sheila Farebrother said that in a disastrous argument, Elton asked her to cut two men out of her life but she refused. She said that Elton and his husband David Furnish are only concerned with “wealth and fame” and have cut all of “the plebs” - including herself - from their lives. Farebrother said she decided to speak after pictures emerged of her 90th birthday party two weeks ago, for which she hired an Elton John impersonator, prompting speculation about her relationship with her son. “Yes, it's seven years now in June”, she told the Daily Mail. “But you know, I've got used to it. And it was all so stupid — so petty.” She said that seven years ago this June, Elton told her to cut off contact with two of their oldest friends, Bob Halley and John Reid, with whom he had fallen out. Bob had worked for Elton for three decades, first as a driver then later as a personal assistant, before he was fired as part of a series of changes he was making to his team. John, who had been Elton's manager and briefly his lover, guided his career from its early days through to his £235 million fortune. “I told him: 'I'm not about to do that and drop them. Bob is like a son to me. He has always been marvellous to me and he lives nearby and keeps an eye on me’,” Farebrother said. “Then to my utter amazement, he told me he hated me. And he then banged the phone down. Imagine! To me, his mother!” Farebrother said she has no regrets about standing up to her son. “I'm not a person to be controlled or told what I've got to do,” she said. “Also, why should I be alone and not talk to nice friends nearby and people I've known all through his career? “I had no intention of dropping John and Bob and I told Elton so. He told me I thought more of Bob Halley than I did of my own son. “And to that I said to him, 'And you think more of that f***ing thing you married than your own mother.'” Farebrother was referring to Furnish, who she blames for taking over all aspects of Elton’s life, at the expense of his old friends and family. “Everyone who used to be invited to the parties doesn't get invited any more . . . and we know who is behind that!' she said. “And that is exactly what happened. There are none of his old loyal friends around — they have all been dropped. Look how John Reid has been outcast. "Everybody was got rid of all of a sudden. That's what happened and everybody has gone — me included.” While Farebrother was invited to be the official witness at her son’s civil partnership, she was told she could not appear in any of the photographs because she refused to wear a hat. “That didn't go down well with Furnish because he wanted it to be the Wedding of the Year,” she recalled Another blow to their already fractured relationship came in 2007, when Sheila's husband, Fred Farebrother, to whom she was married for 40 years after divorcing Elton's father, Stanley Dwight, fell seriously ill and died three years later. “Fred became even more ill and I think he just hung on thinking that Elton would come to see him and he never did,” she said. “We only tried to do everything to help him. Fred idolised him and he was so upset, you know, that he didn't even bother to come and see him when he was in hospital. But clearly Elton wasn't worried about him; he wasn't worried about me, either.” She said that despite not receiving a Christmas card or a Mother’s Day card for seven years, she does not feel bitter. “I've had all the upset and crying and the worrying and the nastiness. I've got over it now and I've got a nice life. And I just hope he's as happy as I am.”
We'd also appreciate your definition of just how fucked up fucked up sexually is. Diagrams encouraged.
Has anyone tried it? A few years ago an elderly neighbor with Chrohn's disease used it. She said she always knew when it was time to reinfect- her body told her so! (She was crude but funny) I thought it was kooky, but it worked for her. My little cousin developed asthma- severe, life-threatening shit. While I was helping her mom, I discovered the link- asthma, Chrohn's, Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, diabetes, etc.- all are autoimmune disorders. A little parasite action and BOOM! --the body quits fighting itself, symptoms abate, you have a dry cough and a rash but no more skin lesions or painful joints or insulin comas. My neighbor had died (she had breast cancer) so I had no idea how to find them. I found them online, but they wanted $500/each. I went "sketchy" (aka found a pre-med student who works with biologics) and infected him. That was 2 months ago. No attacks, no inhaler, no issues beyond the dry cough- the only side effect.
Not a lot of progress with this case......
Or just a case of "humped 'n dumped"?
Sam Smith is the new belle of the ball, the male Adele. He currently has three songs that are on the Billboard Hot 100. He is featured on the song "La La La" by Naughty Boy, which peaked at #19. He is featured on the song "Latch" by Disclosure, which peaked at #34. His song "Stay With Me" is currently rising on the charts, so far peaking at #49. Sam Smith says that much of the songs he's written were based on a heartbreak over a guy. And here is his new music video for "Leave Your Lover" which features him in a bisexual love triangle. The only thing that bothers me is... why did they have to cast a BLACK guy as his love interest? Couldn't they have picked a better looking white guy?
Will it tank? Or does it matter who hosts these shows?
Anyone know what is the #1 gay-related web site on the web now?
It's been made out to be a big deal. I like it.
A hotly anticipated new film that aims to tell the story of the historic 1969 Stonewall Riots just added a number of familiar faces to its line-up. Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and Joey King have all signed on to "Stonewall," a film by Roland Emmerich that focuses on one man's political awakening following the riots themselves. According to Deadline, the lead character (Jeremy Irvine) "befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the watering hole of the local drag queens, gays, lesbians, and everything in between: the Mafia-run Stonewall Inn. There he meets the suave Danny (Meyers) but catches the eye of the Stonewall’s repulsive manager (Perlman), who colludes with corrupt police, exploits homeless youth for financial gain and is even suspected to have had a hand in some of their 'disappearances.'" "Stoneall" does not currently have a release date, but check back with HuffPost Gay Voices for updates as they come.
Suck on it, haters!
Haven't heard any updates on the Brian Singer Scandal. Will any stars be called to testify? Have the now 2 accusers been paid off and sent away?
for a while!
I'll go first: South African I've heard it any times before but this evening news had a clip of Trevor Noah speaking. I hadn't realized before how beautiful a South African sounds.
There, I said it!
Or everyone else?
Soon...anyone seen the first one? I've been tempted to watch it.
As suggested in the first thread.
We lost thousands of people to HIV/AIDS in the 80s, 90s and beyond...should we all be trying to build a gay history of the past from what those of who are left know? How can the older folk in the LGBT community build a bridge to the younger so there isn't so much suicide in the community? Laws are changing but it gay life in America getting any better? If homosexuality was more acceptable would there be a need for red light districts, sex in parks, bathrooms and adult theaters? Are most gays catty and mean or are most of the gay folk you know kind loving and outgoing people?
I've heard Hillary speak out but not Bill. Republicans and some of the press keep saying he signed the same thing though that's not true. Where has he been to defend himself and condemn Spence? I've heard nothing.
God, I love this guy. Yesterday I binge watched all of Season 2 of LOUIE, which I had gotten out of the library. It's terrific--clever, well written, and perfectly suited to him. Season 2 had an episode featuring Joan Rivers--they're both playing at a Trump casino; she's in the main room and has a lavish suite, while he's in the shitty lounge right outside the casino. And Season 4 has an incredible b&w sequence where he goes to the gravesite of some comic and the only other mourner is Robin Williams. The two little girls who play his daughters are excellent, and Pamela Adlon is beyond fabulous. Season 5 starts April 9.
Hugh Jackman Will Play Wolverine Only One More Time March 28, 2015 | 11:24AM PT, Maane Khatchatourian Hugh Jackman is taking his claws off once and for all. The actor revealed on Saturday that he will be playing the “X-Men” character one final time. “WOLVERINE … ONE LAST TIME,” he captioned an Instagram photo of a single pair of claws. This means that the actor will likely not play Wolverine in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” with the upcoming sequel to “The Wolverine” spinoff serving as his swan song. The movie is set for release on March 3, 2017. Jackman first played the mutant in 2000’s “X-Men,” taking over the role from Dougray Scott after the actor sustained an injury. He has now assumed the role an unrivaled seven times, including two turns in his own offshoots — “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and “The Wolverine.” It’s unclear whether the actor will make cameos in “Apocalypse” and/or “Deadpool,” or if this photo is meant to put an end to those rumors as well.
So I have been invited to participate in an orgy. All hot guys. Part of me so wants to do this because it would be hot. Part of me says i haven't got herpes so far so why sign up for the fast lane? Do healthy people participate in orgies?
I don't mean that they know what it is, given that they can be taught to 'dance' and do other weird tricks. But do they enjoy music or are humans the only species to create/like it?
And did you find out the easy way out the hard way?
"Rebel Flop" goes from #2 straight to #16. In Australia, it goes from #1 to #18, both in their second week on the charts. She even bombed in Japan -- JAPAN, not even making it to the top spot. It bomb in the UK by an album that was a year old, and it bombed in France. Poor Vadge. She couldn't even beat her last record: the biggest second week drop in history - 87% with her last flop album, "MDNA". Madonna hasn't had a hit single in years, and her tour sales are stalling in many venues. Her last tour made less than the previous with more dates. Next up, another film directed by the flop herself. Her directorial debut cost $29 million to make, and only made $868,439 at the box office. Perhaps it's time to bow out gracefully like some other performers that shall remain nameless. She's already driving her children to drugs by her antics.
I mean, it's been nine years and some feelings must still be hurting. Perhaps she will make up for it in her Galactic Honors Festival for the Arts, Humanities and Other.
I just came across this version of Easy To Be Hard by Jennifer Warnes.
first thread is nearly full (nearly 590), so starting thread #2 for when the first thread is full.
Where would you want to go and with whom?
26? Really? Oh dear.
While visiting my mom there recently, she was telling me of a BMW she'd seen with the personalized plate reading HUNTY. I nearly burst out laughing having seen that term used here at Datalounge. She is not aware of the slang term, poll figuring the owner's name is Huntington or something.
How do singers deal with the repetitiveness of practicing and performing their hit songs again and again and again? That would have to get really old, even if it is a fantastic tune.
It has one of the greatest death/murder/killing/shooting scenes in television history, if you like that sort of thing AND, Earl survives yet another week. He may just make it, though I expect few players to remain by the end, in two weeks. Even including Raylan. It would be just like today's filmmakers to let him lose in the inevitable fast-draw which is coming. Oh you know it's coming.
I'm the lapels on the oldest daughter that, individually, are bigger than her maxipad.
I'm fascinated by this. Ryan Patrick often seems to be high. In the linked vid he tugs furiously at his soft dick and every once in a while he gets a crazy look in his eyes. I've never done meth or had sex with anyone on meth but I understand anecdotally these are telltale signs. Do these guys smoke or shoot up immediately before the cameras roll How do they get away with that? Are the other performers aware? Is the director? Camera operator? Any other scenes? Any other experiences?
Take the poll.
03/22/2015 WASHINGTON — A Chicago Sun-Times analysis of auto mileage reimbursements for scandalized Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Ill., reveals he may have been inflating claims on not just one but two vehicles, starting in 2008, when he was first running for Congress. The Sun-Times has calculated that since last month Schock has reimbursed taxpayers at least $127,590 – almost three-quarters of his annual salary — for his office redecoration, mileage and a charter flight to a Bears. Schock, 33, from Peoria, announced Tuesday he will resign from Congress on March 31. That comes after revelations from news outlets, including the Sun-Times, about questionable campaign and official spending and other business dealings. The reimbursements and pending resignation did not shield Schock from a Justice Department investigation. The Sun-Times reported last week that FBI agents based in Springfield were in Washington on Thursday, handing out subpoenas and questioning potential witnesses. In April, a grand jury in Springfield will be hearing testimony. Schock resigned the day after a Sun-Times report that he billed taxpayers for mileage on a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe he purchased with campaign funds. Illinois vehicle records, obtained by the Sun-Times through the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, showed the title for the SUV was in Schock’s name. But it is taxpayer- and campaign-funded mileage payments on his previous SUV — a 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe — that are far more legally dangerous to Schock. [More at link]:
I'm quite surprised actually. Do you buy that he stepped down over finances, or was something gay-related about to leak out?
Julianne Moore, the critically acclaimed Oscar winning actress who was celebrated this year for her lead role in Still Alice, has been dropped from an advertising campaign promoting Turkey due to her “poor acting”. The Hurriyet Daily News reports that Moore was due to appear in a promotional film for the country’s tourist board entitled ‘Home of,’ but that Turkey’s Culture and Tourism Ministry disapproved of the actress’s performance and ordered a re-shoot. A source told the newspaper that the ministry rejected the film for Moore’s “poor acting”, and when the actress declined to re-shoot the ad, the project ended up being cancelled. The newspaper reported that many had criticised the choice to use Moore in the country’s promotional feature. The advertising agency, Iconisus & I mean It, had filmed the ad in Los Angeles, in which Moore, sat in a plane cabin, recounted her childhood journeys to Turkey, believing the actress would appeal to American and British travellers. Moore received widespread praise for her portrayal of a professor living with Alzheimer’s in Still Alice, which landed her the best actress Oscar this year. She had been nominated four times previously. “I'm so happy, I'm thrilled that we were able to shine a light on Alzheimer's disease,” she said at the time. “So many people who have this disease feel marginalised. People who have Alzheimer's disease deserve to be seen so we can find a cure.”
Anywhere--South America, Asia, etc. If so, what was your experience like? Would you recommend it? I've seen postings where companies and China and Korea offer a stipend, accommodation, and payment for your flight just to have you teach there for a year. Seems like a lot to offer for just 1 year, but people seem to have done it and enjoyed it. Any personal experiences or things you've learned from friends that have done it?
WASHINGTON -- Arkansas passed a religious freedom bill on Tuesday that is similar to an Indiana law that has faced national backlash for legalizing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. The bill cleared the Arkansas Legislature and now heads to the governor's desk, where it is expected to be signed. Like the Indiana law, the Arkansas legislation allows a person who feels his or her exercise of religion has been “substantially burdened” to cite that argument as a claim or defense in a private lawsuit. The legislation also grants corporations the right to religious freedom. This language is not in the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), and critics say it could be used to override existing anti-discrimination protections. "The Arkansas and Indiana bills are virtually identical in terms of language and intent,” said Sarah Warbelow, legal director at the Human Rights Campaign. “They place LGBT people, people of color, religious minorities, women and many more people at risk of discrimination.” Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) defended his state’s law on Tuesday, calling for a legislative fix that would clarify that the law does not allow businesses to discriminate. Earlier in the week, Arkansas lawmakers also tried to head off concerns about that state's bill, approving language that says “the General Assembly finds that it is a compelling governmental interest to comply with federal civil rights laws.” However, according to Eunice Rho, advocacy and policy counsel at the ACLU, federal civil rights laws have no explicit protections for LGBT people, and this legislative finding -- while helpful -- is not part of the law. “If the Arkansas Legislature is serious about preventing discrimination, they need to write it into the actual code,” she said. “We would like to see both Indiana and Arkansas adopt language clarifying that the state RFRA cannot be used to undermine federal, state or local non-discrimination laws," Warbelow said. During Monday's committee hearing, some lawmakers raised concerns about the bill being inconsistent with federal and state RFRA laws when it comes to protecting civil rights. Some proposed a simple solution: adding a non-discrimination disclaimer to the legislation. "It's not a philosophical debate with me at this point. I think we're going well beyond the other states," said state Rep. Camille Bennett (D), who ultimately voted against the bill. But the bill's author, state Rep. Bob Ballinger (R), said its language was staying put, and that it would be too confusing to try to define what constitutes discrimination. "If that means that you can force somebody who has deeply held religious beliefs to engage in some activity that violates their deeply held religious beliefs, and that the state has the right to force them into doing it, I can't say that I do agree with that," he said. Arkansas is about to enter the same minefield that Indiana has been trapped in since Pence signed his religious freedom bill last week. In Indiana, major companies like Twitter and the NCAA, as well as celebrities like Apple CEO Tim Cook and Miley Cyrus, have spoken out against the law. In Arkansas, both Walmart and Acxiom, a big data company, have spoken out against the legislation. The Democratic mayor of Little Rock also warned Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) on Tuesday that “any piece of legislation that is so divisive cannot possibly be good for the state of Arkansas and its people.” But Hutchinson appears unfazed by these concerns. Last week, he vowed that he would sign the legislation: “Arkansas is open for business, and we recognize and respect the diversity of our culture and economy,” he said in a statement.
THE FUCKING VISIT begins previews tonight! Carry on, as you were...
I seriously don't know how to bring this up to friends online but it's become irritating to the point I can't stay quiet anymore. Most if not all are women. The mirror selfies. The duck lip selfies. The close up selfies and of course, the most horribly omnipresent one of all, the CAR SELFIE! Even my 50 year old dog walker is posting these silly, up close face shots where she figures she's looking super gorgeous, staring deeply into the camera and then posting them. It isn't that this is happening with a lot of different people, it's that most of the people doing it are doing it every fucking day, sometimes multiple times per day. We get it. You think you look really stunning sitting in the driver's seat of your Toyota because the light is just so awesome and all. And it doesn't show how heavy you are or how imperfect your skin is, etc. etc. Yes, females are the prettier sex. But seriously folks, ya gotta stop doing this!
For instance, misjudging your impending load and shooting all over the place, causing an unexpected problem (see: "Please return to your seats and fasted seat belts.")
Pucillo leans on friendship to ease difficult decision Updated: 03/27/2015 Ohio State’s Mike Pucillo was a three-time All-American and 2008 NCAA Division I Champion at Ohio State. By Jason Bryant, Mat Talk Online; Special for TheOpenMat Mike Pucillo nervously held his phone 15 months ago as he sat in his apartment trying to find the right words. For months, the NCAA wrestling champion from Ohio State had tried time and again to share his biggest secret, but he couldn’t bring himself to verbalize two words. Finally, on a December morning, Pucillo reached for his phone and tapped out a lengthy text message to his best friend and college teammate, Reece Humphrey. The gist of the message was this: I’m gay. ...
A Facebook friend-of-a-Friend posting on a thread about the Letter To Iran scandal, maintains that in Arkansas, at least, many think that Tom Cotton is a closeted hypocrite who only recently bearded-up to win his election. What do we know?
My grandmother is 90 and miserable due to arthritis. Her hands are always in pain; if she were a dog, I'm sure she would chew them off. And she can't even move her shoulders enough to comb her hair. My mother lives with her to take care of her in her own home. She goes to the doctor on a regular basis, but he is a country-type doctor. I want to see her get some pain relief, but Granny is anti-drug and stubborn. Plus she lives in a rural area with poor access to specialists. Help us, please.
I'm 45 and I've noticed some faint moles growing on my inner cheeks near my nose. I use sunscreen and generally avoid the sun. I don't think it's cancer because the bumps aren't dark or irregular. Would dermabrasion get rid of them?
World's Hottest Math Teacher: College Student Discovers His Lecturer Is Actually a Male Model By Adam Carlson, 03/28/2015 AT 11:55 AM EDT What would you do if you realized your math teacher was actually a super successful – and super attractive – male model? Because that's exactly what happened to University College London student Arief Azli, who (like any college kid) then shared his discovery on Facebook. "That moment when you realized your maths lecturer is one of the top designer model," Azli wrote in a post comparing two photos of his teacher, Pietro Boselli: One of Boselli at the whiteboard, papers in the hand; the other of him ... not wearing very much at all. "#OnlyatUCL," Azli hashtagged it, adding: "#Bromance." Other students reportedly followed suit, sharing more photos of Boselli in the classroom. According to his LinkedIn account, Boselli worked as a teaching assistant and then lecturer at UCL until June 2014. As for his modeling work, he's represented by Models1. His Instagram says he has a PhD in engineering and is "addicted to training." We can tell.
Let's continue the DL tradition...
I'm home today and watching Will and Grace reruns in between housework. What is the deal with this KUWTK runner up? The drama, the cheating with a tranny husband? Who the fuck would air their dirty laundry on a tv show? Is every "reality" show completely scripted like a regular show now? I thought there was at least a tiny iota of "real" about some of them.

What types of venues have you hooked up at outside of a house or hotel/motel room ?
The 2015 season officially starts now! What do you ball kids want to see happen this year? Me: 1) Lesbian coaches Martina Navratilova and Amelie Mauresmo lead their respective pupils, Agnieszka Radwanska and Andy Murray, to slam glory. 2) Someone hires Chris Evert as a coach so she can stop commentating. 3) ATP sex tape, gay hooker, or PED scandal. That's all.
Which one of these films do you prefer over the other three? Why?
I know... another Aaron Schock thread, but I do think that this one is quite different. He isn't reporting to work. He hasn't been seen. So, what do you think she is doing right now? What would you be doing? My guess is that he is fielding calls from many campaign donors that want to extricate themselves from this mess. However, I don't know what kind of contact they would/could have since the FBI is now involved. Also, I think he might be piss-ass drunk, in tears, and with a dildo up his ass, thinking about Jonathon Link and their wonderful trip to India. Ahhh,,, the good ole days...
Did you ever blow a fraternity brother? Has one blown you? Did it happen in the fraternity house? I admit to blowing three different brothers, who laid back and enjoyed the ride... How about you, Greek Men?
The corner of First and H streets in downtown Washington, D.C., is a reflection of the changing face of the nation's capital. From here, you can see the Capitol dome, while across the street is a concrete public housing complex and a hip new Peruvian chicken restaurant. You can also see a new Wal-Mart. With wide, flat windows and exposed brick, it blends subtly into the surrounding urban architecture. The sleek building defies all stereotypes of the big-box store as most picture it: a monolith of consumerism, an island surrounded by the sprawl of a parking lot, tucked away in the suburbs. That Wal-Mart chose to open a store in a rapidly developing urban neighborhood is indicative of where this company sees its future. More than 80 percent of America's population lives in cities. So while big-box stores are likely to continue opening in rural and suburban areas, Wal-Mart must go smaller if it wants to get bigger.
Continued salute to part one and two and all the guys who aren't shy about showing their bods at the beach.
Okay granted I am not from the south but is it typical for late forties and early fifties men to social friends with 20-30 somethings? Case #1 Thomas Ravenel who is 51 years old, been indicted for selling cocaine and forced to step down as state treasurer now wants to run for congress as a "Libertarian"." Episode two showed a picture of his father with a very large confederate flag draped across the steps of the state capitol. Racist much? Case #2 Whitney Sudler Smith - 41 year old "film maker" who lives with his mother. The rest of the cast seem in the late 20's to early 30's. Thomas seems to think he is quite the stud man about town....given he is handsome and rich he is also racist and vile.
My cousin Eddie. Just to give you an idea of his luck, when I was a kid I had a paper route with an old lady who never paid her bill. She always begged me not to cancel the paper because she would pay me "next week". I carried her for months and when I gave up the route and my cousin Eddie took it over, the old lady paid him the second week he was on the job. He kept every penny and never told me about it until years later. Five years ago Eddie bought a house and rented it out. Last year a developer offered to buy the house because they wanted to knock down these old houses and put up a new "planned community". My cousin made about 75k above market value for the house and part of the deal was he could demolish the house and sell the structure. So he ended up making even more selling the copper pipes and wiring and salvageable materials. Then I find out this morning that while he was breaking up the basement laundry sinks to get the copper, he found a hollow spot under the concrete floor. After digging it up expecting to find a body, he found a metal box with about $50k in silver coins inside. I hate him so fucking much.
With apologies to person who first shared this deep within the "He says he is straight. We have no evidence to the contrary" thread -- this deserves its own discussion. ++++++++ The Rayburn House Office Building is a labyrinth of beige offices. And then, there’s . . . Rep. Aaron Schock’s new digs. Bright red walls. A gold-colored wall sconce with black candles. A Federal-style bull’s-eye mirror with an eagle perched on top. And this is just the Illinois Republican’s outer office. “It’s actually based off of the red room in ‘Downton Abbey,’ ” said the woman behind the front desk, comparing it to the luxurious set piece at the heart of the British period drama.
I can't force myself to watch anything with Tom Cruise, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina "The Self-Whittler" Jolie, or McBongo. Cruise is just too stupid and earnest - no intelligence and the $cio thing is too much of a turn-off. Paltrow has given some fair performances but her smug, alkaline personality has me avoiding her. I can see her insect brain working. And Jolie is so mannered and conniving I turn her off even when the film has decent production values. And McConaughey reeks of ambition and "look at me and my hotness" exhibitionism - always. I try to separate good acting from the fact that the actors are assholes, but with these I just stopped bothering - including their older films. What about you? Who kills your interest in a movie or TV show?
So, how many years for you?

From here, you can see the Capitol dome, while across the street is a concrete public housing complex and a hip new Peruvian chicken restaurant. You can also see a new Wal-Mart.

The sleek building defies all stereotypes of the big-box store as most picture it: a monolith of consumerism, an island surrounded by the sprawl of a parking lot, tucked away in the suburbs. That Wal-Mart chose to open a store in a rapidly developing urban neighborhood is indicative of where this company sees its future. More than 80 percent of America's population lives in cities. So while big-box stores are likely to continue opening in rural and suburban areas, Wal-Mart must go smaller if it wants to get bigger. Most urban stores are 25 percent of the size of their rural and suburban cousins. They feature a slightly modified selection of products that caters more to a grab-and-go culture. That reflects a shift in consumer demand, as more Americans make their evening meal decisions in the late afternoon, says food industry analyst Justin Massa. That's one reason freshly prepared foods are so important to Wal-Mart and its competitors like Target and other big grocery chains. And in densely populated cities like Washington, ready-to-go foods are even more of a focus. "In some stores, we might sell lots of iceberg lettuce, for example," explains Dorn Wenninger, vice president for produce and floral at Wal-Mart U.S. "But in Washington, D.C., stores you might see us selling much more of prepared salads, or kits, or the full salad bistro bowls, which are really on fire." An NPR analysis found that in 2005, none of Washington's 600,000 residents were within 1 mile of a Wal-Mart store. Today, almost 13 percent are. Chicago has experienced an even more dramatic transition. In 2005, only one-half of 1 percent of the city's 2.7 million residents lived within 1 mile of a Wal-Mart. Today, more than 22 percent do. (All estimates are based on 2010 U.S. Census population numbers.) "Many of the areas they're moving into, they've been able to identify as 'food deserts,' " neighborhoods where residents have few options for fresh groceries, says Paul Trussell, an equity research analyst at Deutsche Bank who works in retail and big-box store analysis. "Areas on the South Side of Chicago, for example, really stand out as places that Wal-Mart has found success — there's very limited competition." Pushback in some urban areas has been fierce, however, including in Washington, D.C. And some cities, such as San Francisco, Seattle and New York, remain holdouts against the chain.
Who doesn't love it when men wrestle while wearing nothing but sopping wet leather straps? This question will soon be answered by The Legend of Hercules, which is about a man with a sword made of lightning — and underwear that always flaps open in just the right places. Ridiculously campy and full of 300-style slo-mo, this flick is perfect for bad movie nights and stoner outings. [italic]The Legend of Hercules[/italic] stars Kellan Lutz, a guy whose main claim to fame is as a lesser Cullen vamp in the Twilight series. He plays the Greek demigod with frat boy aplomb, letting us know when he's emoting by bulging up his neck or spitting when he yells. He's born when a woman in a forced marriage to a bloodthirsty tyrant begs the goddess Hera to save her. Hera sends her husband Zeus, king of the gods, to have sex with the afflicted woman and give her a son who will bring down the tyrant's kingdom. And this is the first of many explosively awesome/silly scenes that elevate this movie out of merely bad and into so-bad-it's-amazeballs territory. Because director Renny Harlin — who is basically a schlock auteur at this point — doesn't want to send a cameo actor down to seduce Hercules' mom. No, she has to have sex with lightning. Hot sex, too. Thank you everybody involved in this film, for my favorite geophysical porn moment ever. After that, the insanity is basically nonstop. When Hercules is born, his father guesses that he's the son of weather rather than his own, and mistreats him; his elder brother, meanwhile, covets Hercules' strength and way with the ladies. The brothers are competing for a Generic Babe from Crete, who only wants Hercules. Finally, his father sends Hercules and his loyal Greek buddy off to fight a war in Egypt, where they are captured and enslaved. Of course they become naked mud wrestling slaves — duh! Cue endless scenes of wet men punching, kicking, and zooming through the air in slo-mo with freeze frames right when the dudes are showing us that they have a million teeth in their snarling mouths. It's only a matter of time before Hercules retakes Greece using his bulging pecs and tight thighs. Also, he does a lot of fighting with giant chains and sword-whips made of lightning, which made me think happily of a 1980s Dio video crossed with Highlander. Probably the best part — well, other than the lightning sword — is that this movie is basically nothing but beefcake. Every ridiculous position that you've ever seen a female superhero in — from the "I'm looking kittenishly at you over my shoulder from a prone position" move, to the "somehow I fight while showing off my tits" maneuver — Hercules does it. It's like somebody from the Hawkeye Initiative infiltrated the choreography department. When Hercules is reunited with Generic Babe, she's standing there fully dressed while he emerges from a lake, gleaming and naked. It's pretty obvious whose body we're supposed to be fetishizing here, and I like it. This movie is available in 3D, and for once I'd say that the cheapo post-production 3D totally works. It makes the slo-mo look even more ridiculous, and the whirling chains come zipping out of the screen in cheesy splendor. I should warn potential viewers, however, that this film is best enjoyed while lightly intoxicated. Do not attempt to watch The Legend of Hercules without at least getting high on chocolate or your substance of choice first. As long as you're in the mood for a movie that's so bad it's good, The Legend of Hercules will not disappoint. If you're in the mood for another movie like Gladiator — just go watch Gladiator on DVD.
Punched out a crew member, the dick. Will May and Hammond carry the show, or will they bring a new car nerd in?
Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin famously starred side by side in the 1980 classic Nine to Five – and if these exclusive stills from their new Netflix series Grace and Frankie are any indication, they've still got it. The two are reteaming for a Netflix original series from Skydance Productions about two women whose husbands (played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) leave them for (SPOILER ALERT) ... each other.
Jealousy is when you worry someone will take what you have. Envy is when you want what someone else has. Please use the correct word accordingly.
She said Rand makes Mickey Spillane look like Dostoevsky. Really? I don't like Rand, but objectively speaking, I don't think "the fiction of Ayn Rand is as low as you can get re fiction" as O'Connor said. What about the trash romance authors? Aren't they the lowest of the low?
Is tolerance a factor? Or if you are old enough, does it matter? I think society views all elderly as sexless. I'm wondering if I'm an 80 year old man in a grocery store if people will be whispering "fag" behind me or if I'd even care. I probably wouldn't hear it.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah man was arrested this week after police say he acknowledged damaging more than 30 cemetery headstones because he wanted to help the deceased be brought back to life. Spencer Robinson, 36, told police after his arrest Monday that the headstones were interfering with the people's ability to be resurrected, Payson Police Lt. Bill Wright said. It appears Robinson did the damage early Sunday morning before sunset at a cemetery in Payson cemetery, Wright said. Payson is a city of about 19,000 located 60 miles south of Salt Lake City. The headstones were found by police midday Sunday in varying stages of destruction. Some were smashed into pieces. Others were just slid off the base. Some were thrown over a fence. Many were more than 100 years old and probably can't be repaired, Wright said. The damage is estimated to be about $50,000. Robinson was arrested Monday on suspicion of a felony count of intentionally damaging property. He is also facing charges of resisting arrest and criminal trespassing. The AP sought comment on the charges from Robinson but could not verify whether he had a listed telephone number or an attorney. Police have had previous encounters with Robinson.
Or are they titillated by this fascinating new topic coming at them? The media has seized upon us as one of the last provocative, hot button issues. Everyday it's 'gay athletes', 'gay marriage', 'gay adoption'. I have to admit, I'm a little saturated on the issue myself (though I'm old enough to find it amusing, because when I was growing up it was a taboo subject everywhere... that is, until AIDS).
Let's list them and discuss them here. I know Rosie O' claims she was abducted by aliens and was hypnotized by Budd Hopkins. Tom DeLonge from Blink 182 is a paranoid UFO nut, even recently doing an interview where he said his life is in danger because of what he knows. Fran Dresher claims she and her husband were abducted by aliens but her husband says it's not true. Dan Aykroyd is another paranoid UFO nut who did a documentary on UFOs where he chain smoked and talked all kinds of crazy stuff. Britney Spears had an unsual encounter with Dan Aykroyd. Basically she and he sighted "Men In Black" which Aykroyd believed were harassing him because of his interest in UFOs. Country singer Kayce Musgraves just admitted she believes in UFOs and has seen them twice. Singer Ryan Adams claims he saw a UFO. Basketball player Baron Davis claims he was abducted by aliens. Kendal Jenner claims she saw a UFO. Russel Crow claims he took a picture of a UFO. Singer Rihanna admitted she is obsessed with UFOs. Jodi Foster donated a large sum of money to SETI. Singer Katy Perry believes in UFOs and says she is fascinated by the subject. Sammy Hagar claims to have made mental contact with aliens and had a weird abduction-like event. Elvis was obsessed with UFOs and claimed to have seen them several times. Halle Berry believes that we are not alone. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith believe in UFOs. Jada claims she even asked Obama if UFOs were real and he said he could neither confirm nor deny it, which she took to mean that they were real. Mick Jagger claimed he had 2 UFO sightings. An unconfirmed rumor has it that he had some device installed in his home that would alert him if a UFO flew overhead near his home. Muhammed Ali claimed to have seen 16 UFOs. President Carter said he saw a UFO in 1969. Shirly MacClaine is a huge believer in UFOs. According to Shirly MacClaine, Ronald and Nancy Reagan came to a party later and when they arrived they were all excited and said that the reason why they were late was that they saw a UFO on the way to the party. Olivia Newton John claimed to have seen a UFO and became a huge believer afterwards. Sigourney Weaver is a huge believer in UFOs and even stated that there is a governmental agency that suppresses UFO information. Keanu Reaves is a believer in UFOs but has never seen one. Billy Ray Cyrus claims to have seen UFOs and snapped pictures of them. David Bowie is a huge UFO believer. He claimed he saw several UFOs in England and that he used to work for a UFO magazine. "The Rock" says he believes in UFOs. Tom Cruise, as a Scientologist, believes that aliens seeded earth. Cruise is also rumored to have built a multi-million dollar bunker in Colorado where he plans to take his family when the alien come to take over earth. Victoria Beckham claims to have seen a UFO and snapped a picture. Singer Demi Lovato admitted she believes in UFOs an conspiracies. Bob Hope had a home shaped like a UFO. I don't know if he believed in UFOs though. And finally, Jackie Gleason was obsessed with UFOs after allegedly being shown dead alien bodies recovered from the Roswell crash by President Nixon. According to Gleason's ex-wife, the event really happened! Supposedly Nixon, who was best friends with Gleason, took him to a location in South Florida, where the bodies were being stored. This took place in 1974. She claimed that Gleason told her after coming back home. At the time of Gleason's death it was said he a library of over 200 UFO books. Do you know of any other celebrities who believed in UFOs or who had experiences?

What's your coping mechanism?
How many have you done, whores?
I recently bought a condo and I couldn't be happier. I love everything about it. It's a dream home. Except... The couple next door is very friendly, but they have a litter of the most feral, beastly children I have ever encountered. So far I have counted three of them ranging from toddler age to about ten years old, but honestly judging by the noise they make it could easily be five of them. They scream, whine, cry, shriek, mewl and whimper all the fucking time. They run, kick, smash and jump practically non-stop. I swear it's like they are moving furniture over there. Mercifully after 10 PM all is completely quiet, so sleep has never been a problem -- until I want to have a bit of a late wake-up (I work from home), in which case I will be waken up by more jumping and shrieking at 8 AM. Every time I see their mother, I feel sorry for her. She is my age (early 30s) and looks like in another lifetime she was fun and pretty. Now she looks perpetually exhausted, and I can't blame her, really. Since all noise ceases after 10 PM, I have no legal grounds to complain, nor would I want to pile on the poor harassed mother, who seems to be suffering quite enough as it is. I guess I just want to vent. I fucking hate those kids. I fucking do.
I just watched a Dutch made-for-tv movie, "Jongens" ("Boys"), which was really well done. Can anyone suggest some others that were produced late 2013, early 2014? TIA!

Can't relate. We don't all have Jewish elders. They annoy me.
Both myself and another colleague are leaving work for other opportunities elsewhere. Apparently this one coworker arranged a huge party for the other colleague, praising her excessively and making a huge fuss. I was present, and not a word was mentioned about me. And I even caught the coworker who arranged the party cast a sidelong glance at me, revelling in my reaction which is extreme sadness ( I was almost crying). With days left at work, the coworker who arranged the party and I are speaking no more than necessary to each other. I felt so bad afterwards that four days later, I still feel bad. How would you feel?
WASHINGTON -- Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy (D) will sign an executive order on Monday barring state-funded travel to Indiana because of the state's new law that could allow businesses to turn away gay and lesbian customers for religious reasons. Malloy announced his plans on Twitter.

Who knew she was this funny?
(as Kellan would spell it) See his pecs and nipples ripple.
Do you think there are any stars who made "deals" with gossip sites or tabloids, either to get coverage or to cover stuff up (like Bill Cosby did with the Enquirer to squeal a story on his rapes)? I wonder if Ryan Seacrest has some kind of a deal with tmz, they are always promoting his "romances" with random models no one cares about
Barbers always make a big deal about my preference about how I like the back of my neck. Should the hair be cut straight, rounded, or natural, they ask. Then they show you how lovely it looks in a mirror. I honestly don't care but I've gone natural lately. You?

I'm starting a side business for a trial run. I posted about it a few weeks ago. I'm going to start making all natural, "organic" and marketed as locally made (for tourists, who love that shit) body butters and scrubs, just to start off with. I will have unscented for men and some scented for women. They will be packed in glass bottles. I'm still trying to decide on those. If successful, I will start making shampoos and lip balms, etc. I need a name though. Someone suggested "Rawhide" because we're in TX but that sounds too masculine and rough. Maybe for a men's line but not for women. I was thinking of something that would suggest the Earth like "Gaia's something or other".
So much better than that thinning, long haired look he was sporting. More musicians should do that - the long hair (especially of it's thinning/balding) looks ridiculous on an older guy.
Should we invite them to visit?
What a hottie! Anyone know him or have any stories?
Caramel Frosting I don't ask for much out of this life. I would like, however, just once before I die, to make one successful batch of ho-made caramel frosting. I melt my I/2 stick butter, add the brown sugar, bring it to a boil, let it boil for 2 minutes, cool it, then add the confectioner's sugar. Although the flavor is delicious (and why wouldn't it be?) the texture is terrible. OK, DL experts, spill. What am I not doing, or doing, that guarantees disaster.
Thank you again Nevada.

A couple months ago I stumbled onto Chaturbate. It has since become my new on-line porn obsession. An interesting array of guys jerking off, having sex for tokens. Most quickly forgettable. But I have become "a regular" of Colby Knox, the video performances of "Colby" and "Mickey", an incredible hot and adorable young gay couple from NC who also own a separate porn site, which I don't bother with. Anyone else know who I mean? What's their story off-line? Are they truly as sweet as they seem on? I know it's ridiculous but I find myself not only watching for the hot sex they have together but also enjoying the conversation they have together and with "fans" before and after. I know, I know - pathetic. But whether genuine or not, these boys are like puppies or having a "relationship" with your favorite bartender and seem truly "in love" with each other. They also have brilliantly marketed "friendly" with some of the hottest sex I've seen in a while. Anyone else? Anyone know the real story? (Be gentle, I know I'm also being worked.)
This is male model, Justin Joslin. He is unarguably the most handsome man ever. Is he gay or straight?
An acclaimed actor. And an acclaimed director. A director with a huge ego, recently made even bigger, and his acclaimed friends are pricks too, so it’s not like there’s anyone around to check his behaviour... until he took it a step too far with someone who has some experience with knocking around douchebags on set. So it’s been a long shoot. And this is a technically particular director. His exacting demands have made it so that production is taking a long, long time. He berates and belittles the crew, he’s impatient, and he’s often cruel, even unethical in his pursuit to get the “perfect shot”. With the hardware now, he feels even more justified in being as unkind as he wants to be, because in his mind, art is often not compatible with compassion. Compassion was the problem when one of his leads, due to a physical ailment, relied on wardrobe to come up with a solution that would alleviate some of his pain. It was a relief to the actor and, for the most part, it wasn’t a big deal aesthetically, until a long shot was required, at which point the director noticed that an adjustment had been made to help with the actor’s discomfort. The director went ballistic. He got right up in the actor’s face. They start screaming at each other. They decide to take their argument somewhere private, where they continue to yell at each other. It’s LOUD. It’s ugly. It’s level 15 on intensity. The director won’t forgive, the actor won’t apologise. Everyone can hear. And then… Silence. The actor exits. On his own. The director? Is found by the crew moments later. On the ground in his tent. One punch.

“The Sound of Music,” the movie, turns 50 this year, as popular as ever, a bedrock memory of untold millions of childhoods. Mine, for sure. Some far-off day, when neural engineers do a digital download of my dying brain, they will find, way back with the oldest grudges and PIN numbers, the “Sound of Music” soundtrack, every line and rhyme. She climbs a tree and scrapes her knee. When the dog bites. Yodel-ay-hee-hoo. The movie is returning to theaters for two days in April, and no doubt many in middle age will go, to visit an old friend who they hope hasn’t aged a bit. A few may be disappointed. “The Sound of Music” is a great movie, but it isn’t a very good one. Critics in 1965 recoiled from its operetta schmaltz, its wooden acting, the sentimental goop poured all over what was already considered one of the sappier Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals. They were right, even though the movie’s many devotees will disagree, now and forever. Don’t get me wrong — I love the movie and still enjoy making fun of it. But I often wonder why it has never been reimagined, rescued from its reputation, reborn as a movie to enjoy for reasons other than nostalgia or camp. I had this thought after seeing “South Pacific” in its first Broadway revival; the director, Bartlett Sher, shook off the dated racial themes and left it radically refreshed. I remember, too, how the director Trevor Nunn, with Hugh Jackman as Curly, darkened “Oklahoma!” and made it almost terrifying. Shouldn’t it be possible, without total demolition, to respectfully upend everyone’s idea of “The Sound of Music”? To unearth cruelty and carnality, honesty and deep feeling, all the things that lie buried under all that Salzburg sunshine and the radiance of Julie Andrews? In other words: Is this story really as one-dimensional as we think it is? Here is Maria, a girl supposedly so wild and unfit for the convent that one nun suggests tying a cowbell on her neck. Another supplies the perfect tag line: “She’s a wonderful girl — some of the time.” There is the captain, who has seven (seven!) children. He also has issues, as we see from the moment he meets Maria and tells her he wants her out of that dress. Rodgers and Hammerstein were no babes on Broadway. Their shows often have secondary couples who, unlike the prim leads, couple from the get-go. In “Oklahoma!,” Ado Annie just cain’t say no. “South Pacific” has Lieutenant Cable and young Liat, who meet and mate in about a minute. In “The Sound of Music,” it’s the daughter Liesl and Rolf, the Nazi telegram boy, whose name sounds like what I want to do whenever he’s on the screen. Their duet, in a gazebo in a thunderstorm, is all about sex and crossed signals. She’s ready; he’s an idiot. Later, she sneaks into the house, soaked, and Maria lies to cover for her. “The Sound of Music” is never going to be “Spring Awakening,” the rock musical about sex-addled 19th-century German adolescents. But there is a lot that isn’t saccharine in the source material: devotion and desolation, spiritual fervor and erotic longing. A lonely captain who dumps his rich girlfriend for the babysitter. All that, plus lusty goatherds. And Nazis! Poor Ms. Andrews has been lugging this rucksack over the Alps for 50 years. It’s time for another Maria to take it from here. What’s Lady Gaga doing? I mean no insult to the lovely, the luminous, the practically perfect Ms. Andrews. But I liked her better in that other movie, the one where she plays an unlicensed caregiver who is hired to provide structure to two at-risk children, but instead brings them to hang with her boyfriend, a street musician who likes to get high at his uncle’s house. Can there be wit, irony and genuine laughs in a family film? Yes — keep “Mary Poppins” just as it is.

Who in the fuck is this bitch?!? The chop-jawed Brit who is suddenly omnipresent in their PLANE! PLANE! PLANE! coverage? He's physically irritating to watch, completely obnoxious (as most Brits on US news shows go), desperate to suck up air time. He's on at 5:30 in the morning on through Anderson Cooper and perhaps later. I'm not watching CNN all day but every fucking time I tune in, there this asshole is. WHO the fuck is he? And while I'm at it, are there as many Americans on British news programs as there are Brits on US shows??
Do we hate him for being a closet case.

'X Files' actor David Duchovny to release 1st album in May Associated Press, 39 minutes ago NEW YORK (AP) — "X Files" actor David Duchovny is releasing his first music album. He announced Tuesday he'll release "Hell or Highwater" on May 12. The album will include 12 tracks he wrote. Duchovny has won two Golden Globes and is best known for his roles in the TV series "The X Files" and "Californication." He says in a statement making the album was a "dream come true," though he adds it's shocking to think he has a musical career. The first single is the title track and already is available. The music is being released on ThinkSay Records. Duchovny will star in the upcoming NBC series "Aquarius," which debuts May 28.

The New York Times ...BREAKING NEWS ALERT...\t Tuesday, March 31, 2015 1:34 PM EDT The co-pilot at the controls of the crashed German jetliner had informed Lufthansa in 2009 about his depressive episodes when he was seeking to rejoin the airline’s flight school after a months-long pause in his studies, the company said in a statement Tuesday. Lufthansa said that it had shared with prosecutors email correspondence between the co-pilot, Andreas Lubitz, and the flight training school, which included medical records about a “deep depressive episode.” French prosecutors said that Mr. Lubitz apparently crashed the Airbus A320 jet of Germanwings, a Lufthansa subsidiary, into the French Alps intentionally on March 24, killing all 150 people on board. Prosecutors in Germany said Monday that that he had been treated for suicidal tendencies.

This show doesn't get much love on DL. There are some really talented artists on the show and they are always mixing it up a bit. It is always about the competition and really very little drama amongst the competitors ... they actually get along and help each other out. And some of the artists have been pretty cute. Well worth checking out .........

This time it wasn't a contestant committing a big flub on "Wheel of Fortune." Host Pat Sajak did the honors instead. While introducing player T.K. Klotz during an episode that aired Thursday, the host noted that Klotz was engaged. "Some woman has agreed to marry you," he said to the contestant. "Some gentleman," Klotz corrected. As you can see in the clip above, things got a little awkward, but Sajak handled the gaffe with aplomb. A commenter who appeared to be Klotz told Deadspin that Sajak apologized during the commercial break. He also joked that the host had "better fashion sense than this homosexual." Some reaction on Facebook wasn't as forgiving of Sajak. "He can't be that dumb," one user wrote. The mistake took on uncomfortable context. In April, Sajak raised eyebrows by sending out a sarcastic tweet proclaiming his heterosexuality. "It might be seen as just a likely ribbing at the recent spate of celebrity outings, except that Sajak is a serious right-winger" who has donated to Republican candidates, NewNowNext wrote.

My neighbour just got home and pulled his Harley out of the garage for the annual park-n-rev. He'll sit in his driveway and rev the shit out of this bike, but not actually ride it--yet.

Well, that escalated quickly. Two judges for The X Factor NZ, the TV talent competition's New Zealand spinoff, are facing heavy backlash for their nasty words to one contestant during a live broadcast on Sunday night. The married couple Natalia Kills and Willy Moon, both musicians and performers, took a swift dislike to the young singer Joe Irvine "I'm just going to state the obvious: we have a doppleganger in our midst," began Kills, an English pop singer who has toured with LMFAO. Appraising Irvine's natty blue suit and slim tie, she continued, "As an artist who respects creative integrity and intellectual property, I am disgusted at how much you have copied my husband, from the hair to the suit. Do you not have any value or respect for originality?" Her words only grew harsher as she further compared Irvine to her husband Moon - who, conspicuously, was not wearing a blue-and-white suit combination that evening. "You're a laughingstock," she added. "It's cheesy, it's disgusting. I personally found it absolutely artistically atrocious. I am embarrassed to be sitting here in your presence having to even dignify you with an answer of my opinion... You make me sick." As Irvine struggled to maintain composure onstage, and the studio audience booed, Moon added his own damning judge's critique. "It's like Norman Bates dressing up in his mother's clothing. It's just a little bit creepy," said the New Zealand-born singer-songwriter, referencing the villain of Psycho. "I feel like you're going to stitch someone's skin to your face and then kill everyone in the audience." The backlash to Kills and Moon has been swift. TV3, the network that broadcasts The X Factor, called the incident "bullying" on its Facebook page. (more at link)
I'm not a big believe in homeopathy but damn these zinc pills work for me. Normally, my colds last two weeks. When I start Cold-ease zinc lozenges at the start of a cold, my colds last 3 days!

Anyone else try these?

Thebox shut itself down last year, only to create a new "secret" site, ZXCV. Well, the latter was finally closed a few days ago. It was the best place to get rare British television shows. The moderators were the worst though. They were schoolyard bullies. Anyway, did anyone here use those sites? I'm not big into torrents. That was the only place I would use them as the stuff they had was so rare, and it wasn't a big public web site.

Her last album "MDNA" bombed, selling only 1.8 million worldwide, the worst-selling album of her career. They gave the album away with tour tickets and perfume too. The album's three singles all flopped. The first single, a critical disaster, "Give Me All Your Luvin'" got to #10 on the charts thanks to Live Nation paying for airplay. It still only got to #10 even after the Super Bowl promotion, and giving the single away with pre-orders. The next two singles bombed, even in places like the UK, one of her most dedicated markets. "Give Me All Your Luvin'" charted at #37, "Girl Gone Wild," "MDNA"'s second single, charted at #73, and the third and last single "Turn Up The Radio" chart at #175. It didn't even chart in the US. Then there was horrible film "W.E." in 2012, which cost $29 million to make, and only made $868,439 at the box office. Does she understand that she's musically irrelevant now? Should she just stick to performing "Greatest Hits" tours? I'm betting she lives in a bubble with a whole load of Yes Men. Her last tour didn't pull in the same amount of $$$ as the previous one, although it didn't remarkably well. Why? She's still having to sing "Vogue" and "Like A Virgin". Her personal life is a disaster as well - all the plastic surgery, 20-year-old bought and paid for boyfriends, etc. Then she's still in that freaky cult. Oh, let's not forget her taking her tits and showing her ass and vagina at 54, she trying to prove that she's hot and trying to shock people. Do you think she can accept simply being a touring artist, a nostalgia act? That's all she has now. Her directing career, which she was aiming for, is never going to happen. We're seeing and discussing child stars and over-the-hill celebs in crisis non-stop today. I imagine Madonna's going to be added to the list.

Gay couple serving life sentences to marry in prison Convicted murderers Mikhail Gallatinov and Marc Goodwin are to get married at Full Sutton prison near York, but will not be able to share a cell Helen Pidd, northern editor, and Eric Allison, prisons correspondent; Friday 20 February 2015 17.28 GMT A gay couple detained in one of the UK’s toughest prisons are to marry after conducting an illicit relationship in the library. Both men are serving life sentences for murder in Full Sutton prison near York, which houses some of the most dangerous offenders in the country. Mikhail Gallatinov, a convicted paedophile, was jailed in 1997 for the murder of Adrian Kaminsky – who he had met through a gay chat line. He will soon marry Marc Goodwin, who in 2007 was sentenced to life behind bars for a homophobic killing on Blackpool seafront. He kicked and punched to death his victim, Malcolm Benfold, 57. The pair will wed in a ceremony inside the prison next month, the Mirror reported. It is believed to be the first same sex marriage or civil partnership to occur on the prison estate since the equal marriage act came into force last year. A source who visits Full Sutton regularly told the Guardian the relationship was well known inside the jail. “These two guys were on separate wings at Full Sutton and used to meet – and have sex – in the prison library. Then they managed to get on the same wing and had sex regularly,” she said. Since submitting their application for marriage, the men have been split up and housed on different wings, the source claimed. Full Sutton has a “Rainbow” group, where gay, bisexual and transgender prisoners can meet to discuss issues and problems. Heterosexual prisoners are also allowed to join the discussions, which are chaired by a prison officer. Though not official policy, health care staff distribute condoms to prisoners who ask for them, the source said. According to the Mirror, the couple gave their jobs as bar staff on the notice of marriage, which was posted at the register office in Beverley, East Yorkshire. The notice, which also describes Gallatinov as a chef, says the wedding will take place at “Sutton View, Moor Lane, Full Sutton” – neglecting to mention that it is a prison. A Ministry of Justice spokesman refused to comment on the marriage, saying: “We do not comment on individuals. “Prisoners are entitled to apply to be married in prison under the Marriages Act 1983. This would take place at no cost to the taxpayer and there is no possibility they would share a cell.” Under the terms of the Marriage Act 1983, all prisoners can exercise their right to marry under civil law in the place of their detention, and this right is reinforced by the Human Rights Act. When passed, the 1983 law was intended to allow heterosexual prisoners to marry their partners from the outside world. The logic was that prisoners should largely enjoy the same human rights as their free counterparts, and that building and retaining family ties can help with the rehabilitation process. But with the introduction of the Civil Partnerships Act 2004 and the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act coming into force last year, gay inmates are now legally allowed to marry each other inside jail, causing logistical issues for prison staff. There is no rule prohibiting sex or relationships between prisoners, but prison officers do not allow inmates to have sexual relationships, according to the Commission on Sex in Prison, carried out by the Howard League for Penal Reform. Frances Crook, the Howard League’s chief executive, supports marriage in prison, saying: “As a general principle, I think that prisoners should be allowed the same civil rights as people outside. They are in prison for public safety reasons, not to stop them asserting their civil rights.” But she said it would be fair for the couple in Full Sutton to be split up, so as not to give them a privilege heterosexual prisoners cannot enjoy. She wants to see prisons build private family rooms where prisoners can meet their families in private. “That’s what they do in Norway, and in long-term prisons in France there are little cottages where families can spend two or three days together,” said Crook. Access to such facilities should also be extended to inmates married to each other, she suggested. It is impossible to accurately assess the prevalence of same-sex relationships in prison, according Roger Ingham, professor of health and community psychology at the Centre for Sexual Health Research at the University of Southampton. He said he had never heard of a gay marriage or civil partnership between prisoners inside a jail, but predicted this would not be the last. “Given the increasing acceptance of same sex relationships in society at large, one would imagine that there are more of these relationships going on in prison too. The authorities will have to respond to these changes,” he said. The Guardian spoke to one man who was recently released after serving a long sentence at a high security jail. He said: “Paradoxically, given that legal and cultural progressions have almost rendered the ‘gay liberation front’ redundant in the UK, the situation in prisons for homosexual men is arguably more difficult now. “Though engaging in consensual sexual activity is no longer illegal, when prisoners do so other institutional sanctions and disciplinary actions are deployed to obstruct, punish and deter. The easiest pretext for the authorities is always to pretend that ‘security’ or ‘good order and discipline’ are threatened when two men are momentarily beyond the panoptic disciplinary gaze of authority – actually a legal necessity since legalisation enjoins that ‘acts’ be ‘in private’, a rare commodity indeed in prison.”

The former Shimmer Cabaret is being transformed into her own venue, Suzanne’s, with an intimate environment of lush sound, glamour and luxury. “I’m thrilled to be back in Las Vegas with my new show,” she said. “I took 25 years off to write books to express my passion about aging properly.

Please?
Coincidence or political plot?

Seen some videos and seems more like India. Only a nascent democracy and significant impacts from climate change (many areas around Everest no longer has snow). Cost of living is cheap but I can't find much in the way of healthcare. Anyone live there or spend any significant time there?
It seems that her best days are behind her and the scenes have been getting more and more disappointing. Did going bareback scare many of the current and would be models away? Is it because of new ownership? Are there just not that many hot guys wanting to do porn anymore? Did they decrease the amount of pay? Any suggestions on new porn sites?

I don't believe I am duplicating this thread and I think it will be helpful to many! Let's have a one stop source where those who are looking for gay oriented entertainment can learn about different projects and easily locate them. Please give a short synopsis, any history--if you any, and a link to the project. Let's support these efforts!!! I'll start off with a few that I have seen:
I was VERY friendly was this girl back when we were in our late teens and early 20s. Then I moved to a foreign country for five years. When I came back she came for lunch one day with a friend of hers. Then a month or so later...we had a date to go out for dinner and she didn't turn up, nor did she answer her phone when I called to see where she'd got to and I never heard from her again. This wasn't a gradual falling away thing, but an aggressive rejection. A point was being made. Fair enough. Her choice. But, over the years I've felt the loss and have never forgotten her. My mother met her mother last weekend and the mother said the girl and been 'trying to track me down for a long time'..."How wonderful to have met you!" Then I get a message from my brother saying she'd contacted HIM through his Facebook and wanted my email address. Point is...at first I was glad to hear she wanted to get in touch...then I thought, hang on...you REJECTED me, one of your best friends and it's taken you 27 years to get in touch? TWENTY SEVEN YEARS? Sure I'd love to catch up. I'm sort of fascinated after 27 years, maybe I should just get over it.... But she's had all that time to track me down. My father still has the same address and phone number he had all those years ago....easy as pie to locate me. Even I lived at the same place for 14 years after she rejected me...same number too. After the initial elation to hear of her, the details of the rejection etc...have come back. I'm not sure what to do. What would you do?

It's called "Easier Than You Think" but who knows what to think of it. It seems like it might be a travel show but it might be something else that I can't figure out. What's strange is that they have promos for seasons 1 and 2 but only one full episode. They are certainly built but I don't think this one will make it.
I knew that it was over when she was dragged down those stairs.

Damn these bitches are hardcore. Surprised the front deck doesn't hand out lube and condoms when you swipe your card. Makes the westside club look like a county fair. Repulsive yet intriguing at the same time.
I've read a few threads where people have talked about being flat broke at one age and then working their way up to becoming a millionaire a few decades later. I'm intrigued by this since it's not the usual overnight millionaire success story that the media peddles. If anyone has done this, would you mind sharing your story a bit? Even if you're not a millionaire but are comfortable (and used to not be), how did you get to where you are? Do you own a company, acquire a high-paying job, etc.? Please also be honest and note if you received money from someone else to help out (like your parents or a significant other).
Hillary Clinton's lead over her would-be GOP foes has slipped in three critical swing states as the growing controversy over her email use has dominated coverage of the likely Democratic presidential candidate. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush scrapes past Clinton with a three-point lead, still within the margin of error, in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup in Florida, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday. Clinton had a one-point edge in the Florida dead heat Quinnipiac reported in early February. The last two months have also erased Clinton's previously double-digit lead over every other potential GOP contender for the presidency in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Sen. Rand Paul, the libertarian-leaning Republican from Kentucky, is now the man to beat in Ohio after he narrowed his margin against Clinton to just a five-point deficit, according to Tuesday's poll. Paul, who is expected to announce his bid for the presidency next week, trailed Clinton by 12 points in Quinnipiac's early February poll. Every potential 2016 Republican contender included in the February survey has since gained on Clinton in Ohio -- even if by just two points, like in Bush's case. Paul is also winning over Pennsylvanians, trimming his 9-point deficit to a virtual tie, landing 45% of support to Clinton's 44% in the state. Clinton remains a strong favorite -- especially so early on -- against virtually every other potential Republican contender for president in the three battleground states. But it's clear Clinton's email scandal -- first that she exclusively used private email housed on a private server as secretary of state, and then that she deleted all the emails on that server -- has leveled a hit to Clinton's public image and trustworthiness, according to the Quinnipiac poll. About half of voters in all three states say Clinton is not honest and trustworthy -- by a 5-to-4 margin in Florida and Pennsylvania, with a closer split in Pennsylvania. And Clinton's favorability rating has also slipped in Florida -- to 49% from 53% -- and Pennsylvania -- now at 48% from 55% -- though she still gets more favorable reviews than all of her would-be Republican opponents, except for Bush and Florida's Sen. Marco Rubio in that state.
Well, should I do it?

NO, this is not a hate racist question. I just want to know why they ALL pick and choose black men. It's rather odd, don't you think? Is there some sort of racial undertone going on with them?
Just in case you thought he'd be a "different" kind of Republican - nope, he'll pander to the homophobes and religious fundamentalists just like the rest of them. *** "Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has no problem with Indiana's Religious Freedom Act. In a radio interview Monday night with Hugh Hewitt, Bush praised Indiana Governor Mike Pence for signing the legislation into law. "I think Governor Pence has done the right thing," Bush said. "Florida has a law like this. Bill Clinton signed a law like this at the federal level. This is simply allowing people of faith space to be able to express their beliefs, to have, to be able to be people of conscience. I just think once the facts are established, people aren’t going to see this as discriminatory at all." “I think Governor Pence has done the right thing.” Since Pence signed it into law on last Thursday, the Religious Freedom Act has come under withering criticism, sparked a boycott of Indiana, and ignited a national debate about whether such legislation sanctions discrimination against homosexuals.
Tokyo's Shibuya ward is first in Japan to recognise same-sex marriage Officials in popular shopping and entertainment district will give certificates to same-sex couples and are planning educational campaign on LGBT issues Justin McCurry, Tokyo; Tuesday 31 March 2015 12.50 BST Gay people in Japan are celebrating a breakthrough in their quest for equal rights after a district in Tokyo became the first municipality in the country to recognise same-sex partnerships. The vote by Shibuya ward to issue certificates recognising same-sex unions as “equivalent to marriage” was greeted with cheers on Tuesday when it passed in the local assembly by a comfortable majority, but drew a cautious response from conservative politicians. Although gay celebrities are visible in Japan’s mainstream entertainment world, campaigners say recognition of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights lags far behind the US, where gay marriage is legal in all but 13 states, and more than a dozen other countries that have also legalised it. There is still no serious discussion among Japanese policymakers of legally binding civil unions, and same-sex couples say they regularly encounter discrimination in housing and other areas of civic life. The Shibuya ordinance, which will go into effect on Wednesday, will allow local same-sex couples to rent apartments together and grant them hospital visitation rights as family members. Although the ordinance is not legally binding, hospitals, real estate firms and other businesses found in breach of the ordinance will have their names disclosed on the ward’s website. Officials in Shibuya, a popular entertainment and shopping district whose 217,000 residents include almost 10,000 non-Japanese people, said they were also planning an ambitious educational campaign on LGBT issues. Shibuya’s mayor, Toshitake Kuwahara, said the move was in keeping with the friendly, progressive spirit of the area – a chaotic mix of clubs, restaurants, bars and shops that is probably best known overseas for its “scramble” pedestrian crossing. Kuwahara said Japan’s sexual minorities lived in fear and were gripped by self-doubt. “This is the reality,” he told reporters recently. “The purpose is to realise a society where everyone can live with hope.” Conservative politicians, however, have urged caution in granting same-sex couples more rights. The prime minister, Shinzo Abe, is among those who have pointed out that Japan’s constitution describes marriage as “based only on the mutual consent of both sexes”. Abe said “great care” needed to be taken in considering any change to the constitution that would recognise gay marriage. The current constitution, he said last month, “does not envisage marriage between people of the same sex”. Mari Sato, a Liberal Democratic party lawmaker in Shibuya who opposed the move, said before the vote that “more time” was needed to discuss the issue. “The decision will have major social ramifications,” she said. Shibuya officials, however, said that its same-sex partnerships were “totally different” from conventional marriage. LGBT rights activists who had gathered outside Shibuya city hall welcomed the decision. “Thank you Shibuya,” read a rainbow banner. Fumino Sugiyama, a transgender campaigner, told Reuters: “It’s not that we want to achieve something big, all we want is to be able to live with the people we love.” Campaigners are hoping that the vote will prompt other parts of Japan to follow suit; two other wards in Tokyo and the nearby city of Yokohama are reportedly considering similar measures. Bob Tobin, a resident of Tokyo whose marriage in the US to his Japanese partner has no legal standing in Japan, said the Shibuya move was “really a step forward”. He added: “Hopefully all of Japan will take notice. I hope that other prefectures and cities follow suit.” Shibuya’s recognition of same-sex marriages reflects growing public support for LGBT rights. A recent poll by the Mainichi Shimbun newspaper showed 44 % of respondents approved of same-sex marriage, while 39% opposed it.

Please let there be at least one alumni of the Train Line here to share their first hand memories of ignoring Michael Jackson like he was a turn at a dive bar, gasping with joy as Mr. Luther Vandross debuted A House is Not a Home and bitching about Rose Perez shaking her booty like that thing was on fire. I'll settle for any audience members, especially those who got near enough to Don Cornelius to feel the crackle of his chocolate toned polyester tailoring.

Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was an American singer and songwriter. She was named the "top Latin artist of the '90s" and "best selling Latin artist of the decade" by Billboard for her fourteen top-ten singles in the Top Latin Songs chart, including seven number-one hits. She was called "The Queen of Tejano music" and the Mexican equivalent of Madonna. Selena was murdered at the age of 23 on March 31, 1995 by Yolanda Saldívar, the former president of her fan club. On April 12, 1995, two weeks after her death, George W. Bush, governor of Texas at the time, declared her birthday "Selena Day" in Texas. In 1997, Warner Brothers produced Selena, a film based on her life starring Jennifer Lopez.
I'm not. I used to date a guy who wanted to lie down in the afternoon just for cuddling. I cannot nap nor do I like to lie down on a beautiful afternoon. He even hated sitting outside a gorgeous day because "I don't smoke". Glad he's not around anymore. I love sitting outside with nice glass of wine.
MSNBC seems to think that this blue checkered shirt is fashionable, as I keep seeing it on different men on their channel. Maybe they have only the one shirt, and their on-screen commentators all have to wear it. It certainly brings the blue out of the eyes, if they are blue. I guess I should run our and buy one. These people have worn it lately: Howard Fineman (yesterday) Thomas Roberts (twice, lately) Ari Melman (yesterday) Josh Barro (today)
And i mean they are deeply in closet. Also, why do we tolerate it?
There are 4 major pronunciations of the word pecan depending upon where you live. For example, in my area (Texas,Oklahoma) we pronounce it as "pick-AHN". Here are some other pronunciations: Pee-KAHN PEE-can PEE-kahn The most popular and widespread pronunciation is Pee-KAHN. The rarest pronunciation is PEE-kahn.
And which are not? For example, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?
my bf pushed me into out bedroom, shut the door and locked. He unzipped his pants and ordered me to "get down here and suck it you dirty cocksucking bitch" His dick was rock hard. He shoved me down on the bed on my back, pressed my knees up to my boobies and proceeded to pound the crap out of me. And that's how it started. Now every day he grabs me and forces me to suck his dick or screw. He ordered me not to wear panties. He just drops his sweat pants and shoves it to me, thrusting like a mad dog. My pussy is red and sore, there are black and bluish hand marks all around my inner thighs. He has been shouting names at me when we do it and makes me do the most dirtiest things in bed at night for hours. I feel like a fucken whore. A piece of shit. I'm sore and banged up. How can I get this fucker off that shit!! I hate this. Omg
Jamie Foxx has been accused of transphobia after making fun of Bruce Jenner and his reported gender transition into becoming a woman. The actor made the inappropriate comment while hosting the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on Sunday. He said: 'We have some groundbreaking performances here too tonight. We got Bruce Jenner, will be here doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his and her duet all by himself.' Jamie then added: 'Look, I’m just busting your balls while I still can.' Although Bruce has still yet to publicly discuss his rumored gender reassignment, it didn't stop host Foxx from receiving a backlash on Twitter over his remarks. Perez Hilton was first to tweet complaining: 'Boo! Shame on you #iHeartAwards for allowing @iamjamiefoxx to be transphobic on national television! Those #BruceJenner jokes were wrong!!!'. Another Twitter user wrote: 'That transphobic joke about Bruce Jenner was not necessary & not funny at all #iHeartRadioMusicAwards.' Jenner's daughter Kylie was reportedly supposed to be attending the awards with her rapper boyfriend Tyga, according to a picture posted before the event which showed placecards with their names attached to chairs at the venue. However, neither was spotted on the red carpet Sunday night. Daily Mail Online reached out to iHeartMedia and the production company which puts on the annual awards, Done + Dusted, for comment about the joke but we did not receive an immediate response. Despite not commenting publicly, there have been various reports about Bruce's transition, and that he has the full support of his children. A source close to the family recently told People that his sons Burt, Brandon and Brody are giving their dad their blessing, as well as step daughter Kim Kardashian. However, Kendall Jenner recently denied that she spoke about her father's transition, after a publication claimed she had said she would 'always love' Bruce whether 'he's a man or a woman'.

About a month ago a month ago the MO state auditor, who was running for governor, suddenly kills himself. Now his spokesman also kills himself? Sounds a bit fishy, huh?

Has anyone been watching the first gay male married couple on a soap? Nuptials took place on-air in May 2014. The character of Paul has been introduced as having slept with Will since his marriage.
And, just because of our fabulous specialness, you may define "good" any way you want.
Watched it last night and loved it- one of the best movies of last year. It's one of those movies that doesn't tell you what to think and allows you ponder the complexities of the characters, plot and themes. As a gay man, I think part of the humor (and sadness) is seeing the power of gender stereotypes that people cling to when pushed into stressful situations. Loved the ending as well- uncertain and open-ended.
The Internet’s favorite item this week, and with good reason, is Kathleen Hale’s Elle interview with professional New Yorker/noted Wolf of Wall Street actress Fran Lebowitz. For those who haven’t read it yet, it starts with Lebowitz refusing to talk on a cell phone and meeting Hale at Burger Heaven instead and only gets better from there. At 64, though, Lebowitz already has a treasure trove of style (and life) wisdom to her name, collected here now that we’ve been reminded we could all use a little more Fran in our lives.

Hugh Jackman to Star in Biblical Drama ‘Apostle Paul’ March 31, 2015 | 12:38PM PT; Dave McNary, Film Reporter Hugh Jackman will star in and produce faith-based drama “Apostle Paul” for Warner Bros. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck will also produce through their Warner-based Pearl Street banner along with Jennifer Todd and Chris Clarke. Courtenay Valenti and Nik Mavinkurve will oversee “Apostle Paul” for the studio. Matt Cook is writing the screenplay about Paul, who had been persecuting Christians as Saul of Tarsus. According to Biblical accounts, as he neared Damascus a light from heaven flashed around him and he heard a voice say, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” Paul became an apostle of Christianity, wrote 14 of the 27 books in the New Testament and founded many churches. Jackman will be seen next in July as Blackbeard in “Pan,” which opens in July for Warner Bros., and stars in the next Wolverine film, which opens March 3, 2017. Jackman, Affleck, Damon and Cook all are repped by WME. Jackman is also repped by attorneys Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern. Cook is also repped by Anonymous Content. The news was first reported by Deadline.com.
I think my favorite may be this one, when (with guest stars Kathy Burke and Rowland Rivron) they spoof "Pan's People," the glamorous and slightly bizarre 70s female dancers on Britain's "Top of the Pops" . There's not a word of dialogue on it, but both French and Saunders are so incredibly committed they're hilarious.
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.
Because the other threads no longer exist.
We'd love to hear about them.

Shirley Booth is fabulous. Everyone loves Hazel, the greatest gal in the world but no one seems to notice, she's actually a terrible person. Yells, constantly interrupts in conversations none of her business, is insubordinate, feeds the whole neighborhood on her bosse's dollar and then is mad when he puts his foot down. Not even to mention her stealing two men from her best friend.
There are a lot of Dlers in LTRs that haven't had sex in years. So would it be a deal breaker for your LTR if your partner wanted to transition? Why would it matter if you don't have sex?

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.
The threads about him are only full of speculation about whom he allegedly blackmailed. I'm curious about whether they will deport him.
Anyone watching the budding romance between Jude and Conner? Opinions?

I was arrested last week for having my prescription pills in a keychain fob. You know, those things they sell at CVS right by the pharmacy prescription counter? The cop asked for my prescription, and I actually had the bottle with the prescription label on it in a bag. But he arrested me anyway. Apparently it's still a crime. WTF?! I ended up missing a day of work, and when they found out it was because I was being charged with possession, they let me go without any conversation. My lawyer says it will likely be dismissed since I have prescriptions, but the damage is done. My plan today is to get stoned! I haven't smoked weed in years, but hey, if I'm going to get fired for doing drugs, I might as well make it worth it.

ABC’s David Muir Continues to Trump NBC’s Lester Holt In Winning Advertisers’ Crowd March 31, 2015 | 12:27PM PT, Brian Steinberg NBC’s Lester Holt may be the most-watched evening-news anchor in the United States, but for advertisers, ABC’s David Muir is emerging as a favorite. Muir’s “World News Tonight” broadcast on ABC has won more of the viewers advertisers covet for three consecutive weeks, a situation that threatens to undermine “NBC Nightly News” while that program is in transition. “World News” attracted an average of 2,145,000 viewers between the ages of 25 and 54, the viewers most desired by sponsors fo news programs, for the five days between March 23 and March 27, according to data from Nielsen. “Nightly News,” meanwhile, attracted an average of 2,044,000, while CBS’s “CBS Evening News” won an average of 1,478,000. The dynamics suggest that ABC is making notable incursions on NBC’s franchise. Holt remains a steady presence at NBC, but has lost some viewers in the absence of Brian Williams, who has been placed on a six-month suspension following the disclosure that he falsified an account of a 2003 reporting trip in Iraq. Holt is filling in while NBC investigates Williams’ behavior, and is considered to be a candidate to keep the seat should NBCUniversal decide Williams ought not to return. ABC’s 25-to-54 audience rose 10% over the previous five-day period, while NBC’s rose 5.6%, according to Nielsen. NBC’s numbers include views of a wee-hours rebroadcast across ten local stations owned by Gannett that NBC arranged to start about two months ago. Several advertisers asked to be pulled from those airings, according to a person familiar with the situation, which took place on the local stations between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. The sponsors discovered the practice in recent days after ABC brought it to light, and objected to the late-night views counting as part of their agreements with the network. NBC has agreed to pull national ads from those broadcasts, the person confirmed. What effect that may have on next week’s ratings, if any, remains to be seen. The advertiser pushback against NBC was previously reported by The Wall Street Journal. To be sure, NBC’s Holt continues to be seen by more people than ABC’s Muir. “NBC Nightly News” attracted an average of 8,709,000 viewers during the five-day period, marking a rise of 2.2% over the week-earlier period. ABC’s “World News” lured an average of 8,597,000, representing an 8% rise. CBS’ “Evening News” captured an average of 6,739,000, Nielsen said. The CBS broadcast was disrupted on two nights by NCAA basketball broadcasts in Western states.

While I respect their faith, don't you secretly think that they're a little stupid? We finally went to breakfast with our new neighbors. Before we ate, they said grace. After the prayer, they thanked us for joining them and went on about how faith is important to their lives and they go to church and we should join them one Sunday and blah blah blah. One is a hedge fund guy, the other is a doctor. Nice people, but we will not be continuing this friendship.
What are your tips? I finally had them cut off that forelock they always left, thinking it would be an adjustment but okay looking....and it turns out that my hair in front is thinning worse than I realized and now I can see scalp through the hair. Oops. Well I can't really stay inside for two months, can I?
I feel sorry for these people Everyone lives in a single wide trailer. ( Decor , don't get me started) No one works including the extended family who enables the massively obese one. They all eat fast food all the time. Who is paying for all this surgery?? Who is paying their expenses ? We are with taxes !!! Margaret Sanger had some good observations.
NBC will ease on down the road for its next live musical television event. “The Wiz” will take center stage on Thursday, Dec. 3, the net announced Monday. Following the success of its past TV musicals, “The Wiz” marks NBC’s third production, after “The Sound of Music Live!” starring Carrie Underwood and “Peter Pan Live!” in which Allison Williams played the title character. “The Wiz” will be co-produced by Cirque du Soleil’s new stage theatrical division. After the television event, the musical will make its Broadway revival for the 2016-17 season, presented by Cirque du Soleil. Casting for both projects is yet to be announced. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who exec produced NBC’s “Sound of Music” and “Peter Pan,” return as exec producers. Kenny Leon will stage both NBC’s production and the Broadway revival, along with Harvey Fierstein, who will contribute new material to the original Broadway book by William F. Brown. “We love this yearly tradition and we’re more excited than ever to not only bring another Broadway musical to America’s living rooms, but also see it land on Broadway as well,” said NBC Entertainment chairman, Robert Greenblatt. “It’s a natural next step for our live musical events and we’re so pleased to be in business with this award-winning creative team and Scott Zeiger, President and Managing Director of Cirque du Soleil’s new theatrical division. Cirque’s incredible imagination will help bring the fantasy world of Oz vividly to life and give this great show a modern spin on the age-old story we all love.” Universal Television will produce.
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indiana House of Representatives voted in favor of a controversial religious freedom bill Monday afternoon. The bill, which critics say would be a license to discriminate, passed the House 63-to-31. Stay tuned for more on this developing story.

I get a kick out of this series. Though it is clear the 'celebs' are picked not for who they are but for who is found in their family tree. The researchers start with a pool of celebs and the one who had a murderer or abolitionist or royal connections gets chosen. In some cases like Chris O'Donnell he knew the entire history before they chose him for the show and he was not a good enough actor to pull off surprise.

"Durst was living in a luxury apartment in a Dallas high-rise, but Zevallos says that one of the rooms inside had only a concrete floor and a saw. When the building manager asked Durst about the room, he said he needed it because he "used a lot of chemicals." Ok so was he bringing to the apartment, killing them, cutting them with a saw, and dissolving in chemicals? Wasn't that what Dalmer did? He definitely seems to share the same mental condition as Jeffrey: borderline personality disorder. If you had to guess how many people do you think he has actually killed?

Everything I know about it I learned on Law & Order, so pardon any stupid questions. But seriously--if I'm an NYPD detective, and I take an undercover assignment as a drug dealer, am I undercover 24/7? Like, could I go to a baseball game? If so, what if I'm recognized by one of the drug people? Won't my cover be blown if they see me out with the wife and kids? What if I get recognized by someone who knows me in real life?
On the cover of Out:
The playwright, novelist and gay activist Larry Kramer’s new novel, “The American People, Volume 1: Search for My Heart,” is a bit like Mr. Kramer himself: blustery, sentimental, embittered and unlikely to take no for an answer. At 775 pages, it’s a grand diva of a book, a wheezing jukebox of filthy jokes, political hit jobs, killing gossip, love songs and fluky mutterings. Mr. Kramer is, of course, best known as the author of “The Normal Heart” (1985), a semi-autobiographical play about the dawn of the AIDS crisis in New York City. It was turned, last year, into an HBO movie starring Mark Ruffalo and Julia Roberts. Mr. Kramer is also a founder of Act Up, the AIDS advocacy group. Forty years in the making and nearly as long, it can seem, in the reading, “The American People, Volume 1” is Mr. Kramer’s magnum opus. It braids reimagined American history together with, well, allow one of his narrators to say it: “Dr. Sister Grace is going to tell you more than you want to know about the history of anal intercourse.” Tony Kushner’s play “Angels in America” (1991) was subtitled “A Gay Fantasia on National Themes.” A better subtitle for Mr. Kramer’s novel might have been “A National Fantasia on Gay Themes.” Most histories of gay men in America begin around the time of the Stonewall riots in New York City in 1969, when homosexuality fought its way into the national consciousness. Mr. Kramer’s novel rewinds to prehistoric monkeys swapping viruses in the jungle. You get the sense he’d like to go back further. One narrator comments, “Everyone has been infecting everyone else since the Garden of Eden.” From here on out, like a Sabbath elevator, Mr. Kramer’s book stops at every floor. American Indians bring “anal intercourse into general use in this country.” The mostly male settlers at Jamestown take a great deal of comfort in brotherly love. In this telling, George Washington, who disappears into the woods with “cute young Indian fellows,” is gay, as are Hamilton, Franklin, Lincoln, Jackson, Pierce and Buchanan. Minutemen jokes? Check. Mr. Kramer doesn’t skim demurely over this material. Scenes don’t dissolve when the candle is snuffed out. Lincoln stars in a sex scene in which, his lover reports, “my big bed took quite a beating.” Lewis, in this book, is frequently, secretly fond of Clark. Samuel Clemens: totally gay. Huck and Jim are “the country’s first gay rock stars.” There is a method, of sorts, to Mr. Kramer’s madness. He combines these stories with those of unknowns, fictional men of no special importance, some of whose tales are moving. Under this novel’s busy surfaces, the author is saying something quite specific: That gay men have always been with us, long before homosexuality had a name, and it is past time we extend to these men our historical sympathy and imagination. Americans may have pretended they didn’t know gay men existed. One character, during the Truman presidency, addresses this nonsense in his own way: “You can’t work in a haberdashery in the sticks without knowing what a fairy is.” “The American People, Volume 1” is uneasy reading, in ways intentional and not so much. It’s a frantic novel that builds up little to no narrative momentum. There are multiple narrators and dozens of characters. Like an old toilet, it is easily clogged. It’s the kind of book that calls many others to mind. It sprawls, satirically, like Thackeray’s “Vanity Fair.” In its necessarily paranoid worldview and its ditsy names (Dr. Bosco Dripper, Lady Hermia Bledd-Wrench, Mordy Masturbov), it recalls Thomas Pynchon’s universe. There is some of the homosexual lyricism of Whitman, the torrential storytelling of William T. Vollmann, and sexual high jinks that bring to mind “Fanny Hill.” (Here’s a fairly typical sentence of Mr. Kramer’s: “You don’t just drop a penis like Tibby’s into the narrative and let it go.”) This novel about disease and the forerunners of AIDS might have been titled, after another gargantuan book, “Infinite Pest(ilence).” I wish I could report that “The American People, Volume 1” had power to match its scope. It does not. As a work of sustained passion, it is formidable. As a work of art, it is very modest indeed. The tone is talky and digressive; few real characters emerge; one feels lashed to the mast after only 50 pages or so. Mr. Kramer seems to know he is flailing. “Are you growing restless?” one of his narrators asks — on Page 13. The flop sweats keep coming: “How do we cut to the chase?”; “Yes, this is a Pay Attention moment”; “If you’re bored from now on, it’s your own fault.” Maximalist in every regard, this novel contains not one epigraph at its front but 12. One of these matters especially. It is from Samuel Beckett’s “Malone Dies.” It reads: “Let me say before I go any further that I forgive nobody.” Mr. Kramer’s novel is perhaps at its most slashing as a chronicle of American bigotry and hate, from the country’s beginnings up through, in this telling, the first stirrings of the McCarthy period. John Winthrop (“he came, he saw, and he told everyone what to do”) and Jonathan Edwards are among this narrative’s Ur-villains. About Winthrop, we are warned: “You are getting off on the wrong foot, America! Can’t you see it, you fools! It is malarkey. And you are falling for it and into it.” Many names are named. Mr. Kramer is in steady league with Jessica Mitford, who declared, “You may not be able to change the world, but at least you can embarrass the guilty.” A lot of media and book talk runs through this novel. The New York Times, of which Mr. Kramer has been critical, appears as The New York Truth. The New Yorker is The New Gotham; its editor, David Remnick, is Byron Remnant. (Yale, which Mr. Kramer attended, is Yaddah.) A venerable medical magazine is The New England Journal of Spots. Mr. Kramer picks small fights with many writers as he skims along. “Oh please, Stacy dear,” he says about Stacy Schiff. He wishes she’d outed Ben Franklin in her book about him. It’s the small moments that function as toothpicks in one’s eyelids while wandering through the maze that is “The American People, Volume 1.” Yet if one line hangs over everything, it’s this: “Show me a plague, and I’ll show you the world!”

Peaky Blinders star Tom Hardy has reportedly tied the knot with his actress fiancée. Hearts. Break. Everywhere. The 37-year-old hunk, who has been dating Charlotte Riley since 2009, married in the South of France and managed to keep it a secret for more than two months. How they managed to keep that quiet, we're not too sure. Tom and Charlotte, 32, decided it would be an intimate affair and were joined by a small group of friends and family at the 18th-century castle Chateau de Roussan in Provence on July 4. The actor has a six-year-old son, Louis, by ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed, who was also at the wedding. A family source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "It was a beautiful, low-key day made even more special because they just had their closest friends and family around them. "Tom's son Louis played a key role during the ceremony. And they made certain to pick a stunning and private setting. "There was nothing flash about the wedding, they always said they wanted it to be about the two of them and their family rather than any grand gesture." Tom, who joins the cast of period crime drama Peaky Blinders in October, blamed his former drug addiction for the breakdown of his first marriage to Sarah Ward, who he split from in 2004 after five years. Tom and Charlotte met in on the set of ITV's Wuthering Heights in 2009 and he popped the question a year later. Charlotte previously talked about getting married, saying: "We are desperate to do it, but I’ll never have a celebrity wedding. It will be low-key, with family and friends." It sounds like it was the perfect day for the perfect couple. ~.~.~.~.~.~. i don't care if he's married he's still bi

From Queerty: “We refuse to concede Jesus to those who act like they own the copyright on Christ, then use him as a weapon to dominate others,” writes Kittredge Cherry about her new book The Passion of Christ: A Gay Vision. The provocative book and accompanying artwork by Doug Blanchard tells the story of a modern day gay messiah, in which the “contemporary Christ figure stands up to priests, bankers, politicians, soldiers, and police…He is jeered by fundamentalists, tortured by Marine lookalikes, killed as news cameras broadcast his pain, and rises again to enjoy homoerotic union with God.” And while we’re all for appropriating made-up stories with the purpose of lifting spirits, the book is predictably enraging many right-wing Christians. Because Jesus was obviously a straight white man who looked like Jim Caviezel. It’s been blasted as an “abomination,” “disgusting” and “an outrage to mock Christ in this manner,” and Cherry says Facebook even initially pulled its ads for being too “shocking” — a move they reversed after outcry. Or as she aptly puts it, they “resurrected” the ads. Here’s a sampling of some of the art, which to us on a scale of one-to-shocking ranks somewhere between an occupy protest and a Quentin Tarantino film.
Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people; - Eleanor Roosevelt One of my favorite funny quotes comes from Homer Simpson: "Marge, please, old people don't need companionship. They need to be isolate and studied so it can be determined what nutrients they have that might be extracted for our personal use."
Is there animal manure on broccoli or something? Why does the house have the scent of shit when I steam broccoli. It's offensive. I know it's good for health, but the smell is offensive. What if my neighbors complain? Anyone a farmer or farm person who can answer why broccoli stinks like shit for me?

"There’s also a danger that it becomes this thing, that you’re constantly seeking this validation, that you’re trying to do something to get a particular response. I don’t like that type of acting ... Bad acting is being self-aware, being self-conscious.”
This is pathetic. Seriously, is he having another manic episode? He is still tweeting even though he 'quit' that too. ******************************* Stephen Fry has quit the social media site, Instagram, telling his fans he was “hounded off” it. The comic and actor, who has a huge following on social media with 92,000 followers on the picture-sharing website alone, said: “Newspapers, as ever, suck all the joy out of everything. Closing down. It was, briefly, fun. Bye.” He posted a blank picture to the page which also included the line “Hounded off. Goodbye”. Advertisement It is not the first time the entertainer has closed down one of his social media accounts. Last November he said he had to stop using his Twitter account, which has more than 9 million followers, because it was not safe. In 2009, he threatened to leave the site because there was “too much aggression and unkindness around”. Fry, who is fiercely protective of his private life, recently used his Twitter account to reveal he had married his partner Elliott Spencer. The QI host posted a picture for his millions of followers showing him and the 27-year-old signing a marriage register. With the picture Fry tweeted: “Gosh. ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing.”
So much about New York, especially in the past, had tremendous style...ABOVE ground. Yet they built the subway stations to look like this >>>> WHY?

I recently saw one of these statuettes at a garage sale and remembered how ubiquitous they were in the 70s. I hadn't thought about them in years and have no desire to ever see one again. No fond memories, no nostalgia. So even though we're glad they're gone, let's remind each other of things from the past most people have forgotten.
Charlotte tries to set up Stanford with her wedding planner, telling the planner Stanford looks like "a young Ed Harris." But when they meet, the planner immediately judges Stanford not attractive enough, and Stanford rejects him as "a big queen."
It was a role Henry was cast for and attached to for a while, the lead in Legendary's The Great Wall. But after production delays and a change in directors, Deadline is now reporting Matt Damon is up for what at one point was Henry's part: This is the China-set epic that Legendary Pictures principal Thomas Tull has been trying to mount for the past several years. Scripted by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro, the film was going to shoot last year and give Legendary a foothold into the China market, at the time with Ed Zwick helming. While Zwick went as far as casting Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker, it just didn’t get over the wall that time (..) The Great Wall reveals the mystery behind why the Great Wall was built, and the secrets that are kept under its stone structure. The film will be produced by Thomas Tull, Chuck Roven, Jon Jashni and Alex Gartner. We would have LOVED to have seen Zwick's version, that had Henry traveling through 15th century China as a British soldier. But had Henry filmed that project last year, he likely wouldn't have been available to do The Man from U.N.C.L.E. - and we can't even imagine that thought.. *gasp* So go ahead Matt Damon aka Batman's BFF, take The Great Wall. We'll keep Solo, because we know he'll shine in that U.N.C.L.E. role come August 14, 2015. And then he'll kick your buddy's butt a few months later.
Do we like her?
It was just announced that Jon Hamm has completed a 30-day rehab program for alcohol abuse. The 44-year-old actor decided to check into rehab at Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, Conn. at the end of February, right before the premiere of the final season of his hit show Mad Men. “With the support of his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm recently completed treatment for his struggle with alcohol addiction. They have asked for privacy and sensitivity going forward,” Jon‘s reps shared to TMZ.
Discussion being moved from the Russian Turkish thread. From a Spa Review. [quote]Now on to the disaster known as the locker room. I have never seen so much dick in my life. I understand that it's a locker room and people have to undress themselves, but these guys were literally having conversations with each other, and the staff members, as their dicks were just hanging around. I mean, seriously? Not to mention the pool in the mens locker room that is completely full of nude dudes. Maybe it was a nudist place and I just didn't see the sign or get the memo? (Almost forgot to mention being completely put to shame when I turned around and right behind me saw an 8 year boy with a penis hanging down to his ankles). [quote]That brings me to my next complaint. Why are there children allowed here? I just recently had knee surgery and had to be extra careful (maybe this wasn't the best place to go after knee surgery), but still. There was one child picking up the rocks out of the little fountain and throwing them. Almost hit my knee. Not to mention the other kid who was running around literally purposely smacking everyone that he passed. Oh, I almost forgot about the kid who dove right on top of me by jacuzzi and almost smashed my kneecap. The best part, not one parent reprimanded their child. Wonderful. [quote]Now on to what you can do. Nothing. For your $50, you get to sit in the pools and the saunas and watch little kids piss their pants and overweight c-sectioned moms flaunt their stomach rolls. No food, no snacks, beverages, am entities. Nothing. You have to pay extra for everything. $290 a person for a VIP massage. What do they do, blow you? I'd sure hope so.
Uhm... like, why are we allowing this to happen?
Do they look better now, all these years later or did they look good at the time?
Sounds pretty desperate to me...
Johnny Depp Injured on Location for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ March 10, 2015 | 06:00PM PT, Justin Kroll, Film Reporter Johnny Depp suffered an injury while on location for “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” in Australia over the weekend, Variety has confirmed. According to insiders, Depp will be flown back to the United States to have surgery. He was not working at the time of his injury, and just how Depp, 51, hurt himself was not disclosed. Production is expected to be minimally impacted by the star’s absence — scenes will be shot around Depp’s character, Captain Jack Sparrow, for the next few weeks. The film, which began shooting last month, is not expected to move off its release date of July 7, 2017. “Pirates 5″ also stars Javier Bardem and Brenton Thwaites, with “Kon Tiki” directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning at the helm. In the fifth installment of the “Pirates” franchise, Jack Sparrow himself in the winds of ill fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea … including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas. The last “Pirates of the Caribbean” grossed over $1 billion at the worldwide box office. The Wrap first reported the news.
It's a difficult day for all the Directioners out there, and it looks like the worst may be yet to come. Zayn Malik announced via Facebook earlier this morning that he was leaving One Direction, and now E! News has learned that another band member may be leaving soon as well. Brace yourselves, everyone, but Harry Styles is eyeing a transition from boy-bander to Hollywood darling. Yep, that's right, an insider tells us that "Harry has told his friends that the wants to get into acting. He loves Los Angeles." And in addition to taking his talents to the big screen, Styles is already working on some new (solo) music projects with several other famous faces in the biz. "He's been writing with other artists like Meghan Trainor, Kodaline and Ariana Grande," our source dished. A second source adds that "Harry has distanced himself from the rest of the band over the last year." "He considers himself to be on a different path to the other boys," the insider further explained. "He certainly has hopes of doing solo stuff, branching out on his own, and so this might be the natural juncture in which to do that." Malik made the major announcement today by releasing the following statement on the band's official Facebook: "My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I'd like to apologize to the fans if I've let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight." His bandmates, Niall Horan, Payne, Styles and Louis Tomlinson, all supported his decision to leave and released their own message to fans. "We're really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future. The past five years have been beyond amazing, we've gone through so much together, so we will always be friends. The four of us will now continue. We're looking forward to recording the new album and seeing all the fans on the next stage of the world tour."
I think she's pretty fucking high.
Do you ever call your pets by nicknames besides their "given" names? If so, what are they? I call my dog (male) the following at various points: Jumping Bean Mr. Pee-Pee Pooping Princess (when he's taking a long time to do his business) What are yours?
Billboard is reporting the Empire Soundtrack is #1 this week. Kind of a shame, because I listened to Rebel Heart last night as I was driving home from work and it's not terrible. Except for that awful first single. Whatever possessed her to release that as the lead? Ghosttown is much better.
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...
Never would have figured Brett as going for the older, daddy type. But Todd is a very handsome daddy. What I'd like to know is why they're hiding? Its not like people don't know that Brett is gay and that they are living together as a couple. Comments, flames, shade... throw it all down here.
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?
a few with COPD have managed to become fluffers since they must wear a bag over there head and the bag acts as an oxygen concentrator for them. The more wrinkled and even less fortunate have to perform as abused body parts, mostly as rectums and saggy tits. While the pay is pretty decent, most truly hate portraying voracious bottom parts. Some seniors have tried to better their lot by unionizing, but vanity gets in the way of many due to the unions acronym, SAG.
Good for them
For a "vacation". But she refused because he wouldn't tell her that she would not have to share a room with him. Wonder how the anti-Mia contingent will spin this?
It's ass numbing cold out there. Oh my gawd I thought my ass was going to freeze solid and snap off just walking to the bird feeder. I'm not fat but I would eat a dozen biscuits right now if I had them in the house. Brrrr freezing makes me hungry for carbs. Howz the weather in your neck of the woods? And yes I'm a flyover Kansas City guy.
I was on the bus and some girl played it on a her portable table cassette. I was transfixed.
Not that he has anything to promote...but it has been almost a month since he's been on TV and at least he gets away from those kids!!!
It Takes Two by Seduction
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."
Hide the sharp objects, Pitt, she's going into early menopause!
Two convicted killers have become the first gay couple in the country to be married behind bars. Mikhail Gallatinov and Marc Goodwin, who fell in love over two years spent at Full Sutton Prison in East Yorkshire, were wed in a small ceremony in the visitor centre. As reported by The Mirror, during the 20-minute ceremony performed in front of family, a few fellow prisoners and four invited officers, the couple exchanged personal vows in which they said they were "soul partners". They did not previously share a cell, and will continue not to. The ceremony was not paid for using taxpayer money, according to the Prison Service. A spokesman said: "We are very clear that if prisoners do get married, the taxpayer does not foot the bill for the ceremony and they are certainly not allowed to share a cell." Gallatinov, 40, is a convicted paedophile serving a life sentence since 1997 for the "cold-blooded" killing of 28-year old Adrian Kaminsky who he met through a gay chat line. He can be considered for parole next year. Goodwin, 31, was sentenced to life in 2007 for a homophobic murder that was described as part of a 'gay-bashing spree'. The wedding was the first of its kind in Britain, following the introduction of the Equal Marriage Act last year. Under the Marriage Act 1983, all prisoners have the right to marry where they are being detained.
I want to make a private gloryhole in my apartment, but I don't know how to set it up! I get how to physically construct a piece of wood with a hole in it. I've always wondered where does that gloryhole get put up? You just pick a doorway in your house/apartment? If you do, is there a concern of the guy just stealing stuff from your place? For example, if you set up a gloryhole in the doorway to your bathroom, then you have to be inside the bathroom, and your guest will have access from entering your apartment to the bathroom, as well as the rest of your apartment! If you set up the gloryhole at your entryway, then the guy ends up standing in the hallway/outside with his pants down, which also wouldn't work. Those of you who have set these up before, how does this get done, and do you ever have the concern of the guy just stealing stuff from you? If it's set up in the garage or shed, that makes a bit more sense, but what about in your apartment? Or is it always in the garage/shed? Thanks!
What did you think of this? It was just on HBO again yesterday. I know DL hates all republicans BUT which do you hate the most? I found this film kind of confusing. Sometimes I feel sympathy for Palin. McCain and his team really seemed to be the villins at times. (well I didn't say that very well but I would like to hear opinions. what did you think?
For those of you who have seen it, would you recommend watching it? It would be a long-term watch, obviously, as I believe 3 Seasons have already been filmed, right? Does it grab you pretty much right off or is it one of those "by the end of Season 1, you're really hooked" kind of things? Thanks.
I am going on vacation to Deerfield Beach, near Ft. Lauderdale in a week's time for a 2 week vacation. A friend has generously allowed me not only to use his place down there but is letting me use his car that he keeps down there too. I have never been there and I was wondering if any of you have been or live there? What is there to do there besides going to the beach or out to eat? I am bringing a friend with me so I will have someone to do things with. Any suggestions or warnings would be helpful. Usually when I visit Florida I go to Naples on the west coast not the Ft. Lauderdale area.
Source is Daily Mail but it sounds like the truth This EL James frau is a horrid creature, isn't she?
Aaron Schock - cockgobbler (obviously) On another thread someone was calling Evan Lysacek "Evan Lies For a Check" - love it
Continuing the discussion.
I'm the roasting of the asparagus for dinner while George paints a sunflower.
Fuck Whitney Houston and her spawning a zillion shitty Black Church renditions of the song. Took the bitch for-EVAH with all the added crap. Fuck her in her dead withered corpse ass!
Besides Miss Lindsey and the cockgobbler...
Sounds like it was a possible drug or alcohol overdose.
Come on, don't be ashamed to admit it...
She's reality TV's own Joan Crawford! [quote]In addition to enduring frequent smackings, the duo’s brood – 14-year-old twins Madelyn and Cara; and 10-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Collin, Joel, Leah, Hannah and Alexis – allegedly are petrified by Kate’s rules that prevent them from using the bathroom at night! [quote]If one of them doesn’t eat an item in their lunchbox, “Mother packs that exact same item the next day, and the next day until they eat it. Hannah reported having moldy strawberries and Alexis said her sandwich is stale.” The same leftovers were packed in Leah’s box “for many weeks.” [quote]“Kate has paddled some of the children with a wooden spoon she calls ‘The Spanker,’” the insider revealed. “In one incident about five years ago, Kate went to smack Mady and hit her arm with ‘The Spanker’ right before school. When Mady got to school, she couldn’t move her arm and had to see the nurse. “During the investigation, Mady did say her mother hit her, but the other kids were too scared to say anything." Where's Barbara Bennett From Redbook (TM) when you need her?
Letting my imagination drift back, back 80 years, yeah they're hot.
Is there anyone on DL who are fans of these movies? Have seen more than one or possibly all of the movies to date? I've seen the television promos and movie teasers and previews and they all seem the same to me. What am I missing?
This is from the site Blind Gossip, and unlike most of the blind items posted there, the answer doesn't seem obvious. Who is it? While casting one of lead roles in one of the biggest movies of all time, this very famous Director asked some of the actresses to service him orally. Some refused. Some complied. He taped the encounters of those who complied. One of those who did comply was eventually chosen as the lead. The Director got a kick out of showing the tape to other men in Hollywood. Several years later, Our Actress got married to another celebrity. The Director invited the Husband over one day under the pretense of showing him “the director’s cut” of one of his films. Instead, he showed him the video of his wife, The Actress, servicing the Director! The Husband was furious! However, instead of going to war with the Director, he blamed the Actress. They divorced soon afterward. If you have ever wondered why their marriage only lasted a short time, this is the reason why. Film: Director: Actress: Her Husband:
What's the point of studies like these? It just reinforces racist nonsense. Isn't it more important what an individual's IQ is? What's the point of looking at IQ by nation, which a lot of the time means ethnicity (at least in homogeneous nations)? It's like phrenology. Nonsense.
Everyone has that one person they would give the old silence of the lambs treatment right? Tell me their names.
This scenario has always begat a boner for me. I still fondly recall seeing Matthew Modine as a wrestler drop his drawers on the scale when I saw Vision Quest in the theater. Now I find images of athletes stripping down to their underwear or nothing in front of a group of clothed men to be highly erotic. Any favorite images or videos?
First the shorts started going below the knee, now this. Modesty?
Taken from another thread.
Ready, set, go ....
I don't want this to turn into a femme bashing thread just curious to hear from gay men who are effeminate if they've found it harder to make friends, whether gay or straight, than it is for non-effeminate guys to make frinds.
It was always the most desirable address in New York. Is it still? (I never really got the appeal of Park Avenue in comparison).
Jack wants us to embrace masculinity, and stop worshiping femininity like a bunch of faggots. Certain topics in his books are actually revered by much of the liberal gay community. Any fans?
Let's begin with the awesome trailer. How hot does Jaime look?! Premieres 04/12/2015.
Just saw this indie film about an Asian-American brother-sister pair dealing with the death of their mother - perfect mix of serious matter and hilarious scenes! I'm no rice queen, but fell hard for the brother (played by Andrew Pang). If you haven't seen it, give it a chance!
In the showers, excessive drying and nude tooth brushing. Were they gay? Did they want me to look?
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.
I've selected the songs most familiar to U.S. audiences (with one title per artist), but also an option for other, as there are plenty. Which one is your favorite?
My cat is inside-only and I've always felt a little guilty for depriving her of the outdoors. I've been told that an inside-only cat gets used to a house and no longer craves nature. I'm moving to a 3rd floor apt with a balcony overlooking private woods. Will it be safe and healthy for kitty to have access to the balcony or will she be freaked out by nature? Will she jump?
James Franco has addressed the rumours surrounding his sexuality - admitting that he is 'gay in his art'. The 36-year-old actor cryptically cleared up the question that has long been asked about his personal life in an interview with himself for the March issue of Four Two Nine, the quarterly arts and culture magazine. He played the persona of 'Straight James' and 'Gay James' throughout And one of the first questions Straight James asked was: 'Are you f****** gay or what?' To which his gay alter-ego replied: 'Well, I like to think that I'm gay in my art and straight in my life. Although, I'm also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse, and then you could say I'm straight. 'So I guess it depends on how you define gay. If it means whom you have sex with, I guess I'm straight.' The star then went on to confuse the issue, as he so often does, saying: 'In the twenties and thirties, they used to define homosexuality by how you acted and not by whom you slept with. 'Sailors would f*** guys all the time, but as long as they behaved in masculine ways, they weren't considered gay.' Rumours of his homosexuality have been fuelled by his roles in gay-themed movies, such as Milk, and the pictures he posts on social media. In one jokey Twitter snap he's seen lying on a bed with an almost naked Seth Rogen wrapped around him as he kisses his cheek. And I Am Michael, starring James as a gay rights activist who tries to turn straight, was one of the highest profile films at the Berlin Film Festival in February. The Interview actor admitted he tries not to use social media because he thinks it's 'frivolous.' But that doesn't stop him sending out Twitter blasts to his more than three million followers, calling the medium a 'serious' outlet for him in regards to work and financial gain. When asked if he expresses his true personality via social media, he said: 'No. It's always felt frivolous to me, meaning I think I have a silly attitude, generally speaking, when I post things. I don't take it that seriously. 'On the other hand, it is very serious because one of the main currencies of our age is attention, and so that little number that says how many people are following me actually equates into money, and a certain type of power.' The This Is The End celebrity wrapped his bizarre interview by kissing himself, of course, in the mirror. ... From the Daily Mail
I heard about this a while ago, but I can't find any thread about it on DL. No release date yet. Moore plays Lieutenant Laurel Hester from Ocean County, NJ, who is dying of lung cancer. She fights to get her state pension passed on to her partner, Stacie Andree, played by Page. Based on Academy Award winning short documentary from 2007 of same name. Adapted by Ron Nyswaner, who wrote screenplay for Philadelphia. Nice intimate pose in movie poster at link.
How about Sandra Bullock? Or is she still "dating" her gay bff?
Peggy Fleming, Dorothy Hamill, Scott Hamilton, Dick Button are American sports legends. A few Americans have won Olympic Gold in the last two decades, but none of them went to any sort of post-skating fame. Does the public care anymore?
There are so many negative threads about him?
Anyone use it? Seems like a good deal for someone like me who wouldn't use it too often.
Well, I don't know what we did to cause Chapter Two of this thread to not open. Mr. Webmaster??? Anyway... I enjoyed that thread and I do not want to derail it at all. So, until Two reopens, if at all, let's proceed to three! It would happen anyway. Mr. Originator of that thread would you please the requirements of this thread. Thank you. Reminder: Some images are NSFW and please note--Like this first one: NSFW!
How sad. no more pics of him and the wife. I'm betting the attention whore will be back soon enough when people really do start to ignore him. "Stephen Fry has quit the social media site, Instagram, telling his fans he was “hounded off” it. The comic and actor, who has a huge following on social media with 92,000 followers on the picture-sharing website alone, said: “Newspapers, as ever, suck all the joy out of everything. Closing down. It was, briefly, fun. Bye.” He posted a blank picture to the page which also included the line “Hounded off. Goodbye”. It is not the first time the entertainer has closed down one of his social media accounts. Last November he said he had to stop using his Twitter account, which has more than 9 million followers, because it was not safe. In 2009, he threatened to leave the site because there was “too much aggression and unkindness around”. Fry, who is fiercely protective of his private life, recently used his Twitter account to reveal he had married his partner Elliott Spencer. The QI host posted a picture for his millions of followers showing him and the 27-year-old signing a marriage register. With the picture Fry tweeted: “Gosh. ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing.”
While he has never been quiet or hiding his faith, New Orleans Saint’s Quarterback Drew Brees has went public with his faith on a new app called Gospel Central. The app was created by former San Diego Chargers defensive back and now pastor of the Rock Church in San Diego, Miles McPherson. Brees talks about coming from a divorced family with an unbelieving Mom, but, a father who took him and his brother to church every other Sunday. The 2010 Super Bowl champion talked about how his life changed when he injured his ACL while playing quarterback for his high school football team. Brees, who says he found his identity in sports was himself questioning his future. On his video recording on the Gospel Central App, Brees’ said, “Five weeks later I was still in crutches, and I remember sitting in church, which I went to church every other Sunday with my Dad, my parents were divorced…” Bree’s talked about how that day was different and life changing, “for some reason this Sunday was different. I was still in that mindset of feeling sorry for myself based in what had happened to me since my identity had been wrapped up in sports. All of a sudden, here I am listening to the Pastor and he’s talking about The Lord looking for a few good men and all of a sudden, Jesus came into my heats and grabbed me and said, ‘I want you to be one of my few good men'”. See Drew Brees’ full testimony below:
This was posted in the comment section of a Huffington Post article by an Indiana resident. Ironic it's called Big Apple Bagels. "For those of you who have not taken the time to do the research before commenting, the citizens in my state are furious. We protested before the bill was even voted on by the general assembly. Then, called the Governor's phone until he had it shut off. The people have organized campaigns to identify businesses known to support the bill. Big Apple Bagels in Brownsburg probably will not survive this after merely showing support for Pence. There is a statewide campaign for supporters of everyone's civil rights to self identify, with the proceeds going to SCORE. We're trying, guys. Seriously."
Reminds me of a young Boy George - better singer-songwriter though, don't you think? Oh the anguish of unrequited love.... yes I have an idea who he might be, poor baby
...Oprah, even... I would have loved to have gone to an Oprah show. It was history in the making.
Poor Annette, no Oscars and no this.
THE MODEL GIRLFRIEND CATALOG! Perfect for, um, ambiguous male celebs to choose the next love of their life from an array of generic hot models!
It's not the kids!! It's not the Oscars!!! It's the wife!!! Listen to how smug and devaluing Burtka is towards NPH in this interview. He loves to talk about how he kept him waiting, he proposed marriage, even when they talk about show they want to do together Burtka always casts himself in the bigger more manly part. Yikes! Deluded!! (and all you defenders can scream jealousy etc. Your input makes for fun lively threads!!!) Go!!!
She's a horror to deal with and every perceived slight turns into World War 3 Anyone have any coping tips?
The second-stage Pokemon evolution of Channing Tatum, Ryan Phillippe, recently did an interview with Variety, and apropos of nothing, they brought up the fact that he’s 40 now. I guess because Variety wants us all to feel old by thinking about the dude from I Know What You Did Last Summer blowing out 40 candles on his birthday cake or something. But apparently being 40 doesn’t affect him at all, because according to Ryan Phillippe, Ryan Phillippe still passes for a teenager and sometimes for Ava Phillippe’s older brother.What do you think? “It’s crazy. And still, I get carded constantly. My daughter hates it, because sometimes people have thought I’m her brother, and she’s freaked out by that.”
it AIN'T local.
Has anyone ever had a positive experience with them? And I have no other option for cable. I'm trapped. Why isn't a monopoly like this illegal????!
[bold]Want to opt out? It could cost up to $744 extra per year.[/bold] If you have AT&T’s gigabit Internet service and wonder why it seems so affordable, here's the reason—AT&T is boosting profits by rerouting all your Web browsing to an in-house traffic scanning platform, analyzing your Internet habits, then using the results to deliver personalized ads to the websites you visit, e-mail to your inbox, and junk mail to your front door. In a few select areas including Austin, Texas, and Kansas City, Missouri—places where AT&T competes against the $70-per-month Google Fiber—Ma Bell offers its own $70-per-month "GigaPower" fiber-to-the-home Internet access. But signing up for the deal also opts customers in to AT&T’s “Internet Preferences” program, which gives the company permission to examine each customer’s Web traffic in exchange for a price that matches Google's. AT&T charges at least another $29 a month ($99 total) to provide standalone Internet service that doesn’t perform this extra scanning of your Web traffic. The privacy fee can balloon to more than $60 for bundles including TV or phone service. Certain modem rental and installation fees also apply only to service plans without Internet Preferences. It wouldn’t be accurate to say that paying extra gives customers "enhanced" privacy; paying those monthly fees that add up to hundreds of dollars more per year simply provides the same level of privacy customers would get from other Internet providers, or from AT&T’s slower DSL and fiber-to-the-node services.
