It's annoying, cut it out.
Josh Duggar, one of the members of the family that stars in TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" ... was the subject of a police investigation for allegedly sexually molesting 5 girls, some of whom are his sisters. The story was broken by In Touch Weekly, but TMZ has confirmed with law enforcement that Josh Duggar -- who was around 14 at the time -- was the alleged molester against 5 girls starting in 2002. According to the police report, Josh fondled the genitals and breasts of the girls, some of whom were sleeping, but sometimes they were interacting with him ... in one case reading a book. There was another reported incident 9 months later. According to the police report, the police were not immediately contacted. Instead, Jim Bob, the dad, met with church elders and agreed Josh should be put in a treatment program. The police report says Josh's mom, Michelle, said it wasn't really a treatment center ... they simply sent Josh to a guy who was remodeling a building to do manual labor. In 2006, the family was scheduled to appear on "Oprah," and before the show someone sent an email to Harpo warning that Josh had molested girls. Harpo forwarded the email to a hotline, which triggered a police investigation. Cops wanted to question Josh, but Jim Bob lawyered him up and Josh declined the invitation. Josh, who is now 27, apparently cannot be charged because the statute of limitations has run. As for the Duggars, one of the family members told investigators, "this entire incident had brought the family closer to God" ... this according the police report.
I must admit I never heard of this place until today. It is quite beautiful. It must have been dream-like back in the day. IS1S will most likely destroy it. Human achievement reminds them how they are complete fucking losers.
At a recent fete, there were several women wearing skirts that barely passed the beaver. And those fucking stripper-esque high heels. And these were thirty to forty year old women! I always thought you dressed so you didn't outshine the bride (who was completely radiant in a conservative gown). But I guess that rule doesn't abide anymore? It wasn't just me. Women I know who went even said the same thing about the trashy attire.
Simon is looking OLD. Matt is looking FINE.
All right girls, this is where you can let loose
Tragically, this almost never goes reported in spite of how widespread it is. Because men are so associated with this behavior, female predators fly under the radar and are allowed to run rampant. Here is one young man's heartbreaking story of abuse at the hands of his depraved mother.
Madonna has rescheduled the first five nights of her Rebel Heart Tour, delaying the international trek’s launch more than a week. Madonna is saying her show isn’t ready but insiders tell NAUGHTY GOSSIP that it is because of BAD TICKET SALES Her planned concerts in Miami on Aug. 29 and 30, Atlanta on Sept. 2 and San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Sept. 5 and 6 have now been moved to January 2016. “Sales are bad in all these markets. It would have been embarrassing to kick of the tour in empty venues. They are hoping that by pushing back the dates, they will sell out by then.” “As my fans already know, the show has to be perfect,” said Madonna in a statement. “Assembling all the elements will require more time than we realized. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause my fans. I can promise you this show will be worth the wait. Can’t wait to share it with all my Rebel Hearts out there.” Madonnas album isn’t doing much better . It has sold under 200,000 copies since being released.

Sorry if this was posted already...since it came out a couple weeks ago (didn't see it here). That cunt and her two douchebag friends are going to face charges on May 21. --- Common Pleas Court judge on Thursday upheld charges against three people accused of beating a gay couple in Center City last year. Judge Frank Palumbo denied defense motions to quash aggravated assault and conspiracy charges against Philip Williams, 24, of Warminster; Kevin Harrigan, 26, of Warrington; and Kathryn Knott, 24, of Southampton. A trial date has not yet been set for the trio, who remain free on bail. They are next due in court May 21. Williams, Harrigan, and Knott were walking in a group of about a dozen people the night of Sept. 11, 2014, when they encountered the two victims near 16th and Chancellor streets, police said. Some of the people in the group allegedly lobbed anti-gay slurs at the men, and a fight ensued. The brawl left both victims hospitalized, one of them with severe facial fractures, according to investigators. The case drew national attention and prompted Philadelphia City Council to pass an LGBT-inclusive municipal hate crime ordinance.

Article doesn't give much detail, but it does put some of our old rumors into official publication. Will audiences care that an aging pretty boy has taken a walk on the wild side? Will the fraus care that he's cheated on the latest wife? Is Brad and Angie's relationship in trouble? Is this the opening salvo of a bitter divorce? Does anyone still care about those two?
The U.S. government has a very peculiar strategy when it comes to fighting against ISIS. Let us not forget that ISIS is simply blowback (or an unexpected consequence) of the U.S. government's bone-headed move of invading and occupying Iraq. The U.S. should remove itself completely from the Middle East. Every clear-thinking person should come to the conclusion that the U.S. has done enough damage already. They surely have not brought "freedom" or "democracy" or any of the other pollyanna terms to the Middle East. Just chaos and destruction that never seems to end. The U.S. government should pack it up over there and take it's losses. However, military empires don't do such things, especially when the mentality of those running the show reaches messianic levels. They instead double-down, and triple-down, and quadruple-down until they ultimately bankrupt themselves trying to keep their thumb on everything that happens in the world. So, with that being the case, and since the U.S. government is going to keep on keeping on, let's observe how it's going so far. Well, after the bone-headed invasion of Iraq, the U.S. spent the next decade training the Iraqi Army, arming them to the teeth, and spending untold billions of our earnings on the endeavor. Then, blowback (Ron Paul talked about blowback during the debates, remember?) in the form called ISIS appeared on the scene. ISIS steamrolled through Iraq during 2014 and captured Mosul. The Iraqi army folded like a deck of cards, and ran away leaving ISIS with tons of U.S.-made military equipment. The U.S. then got to work on trying to destroy the equipment that ISIS seized with bombs and airstrikes. Along with trying to bomb this equipment (and I'm not making this up) the U.S. gave the Iraqi Army even more military equipment. Now you may be thinking to yourself: "Wow, I'm in the wrong business. I should be making military equipment. It's like minting your own money." Yes, the military-industrial-complex surely believes it has created its own circle of life. Now let's go from 2014 to 2015, or last week to be more specific. ISIS captured Ramadi, which is the capital of Iraq's largest province called Anbar. Once again, the Iraqi Army folded and ran, leaving behind tons of military equipment that is now in the hands of ISIS. "Not again," you may be thinking.....Oh yes, again. And guess how the U.S. is responding? Antiwar.com has the headline: US Rushing Anti-Tank Missiles to Iraq. So the U.S. is rushing in even more military equipment to try to destroy the equipment captured in Ramadi! Do you see a pattern here? You should....and it should cause you to scratch your head, and wonder how The United States of America, which was supposed to be the "land of the free," got so far off the tracks.

I saw it in 8th grade. I thought it was brilliant. It still holds up after all these years.
People are discussing the original roadshow cut of A Star is Born in another thread and how one person apparently has a print. It would be amazing to see. For me, it's the original cut of The Magnificent Ambersons. Lost forever, alas. What would you like to see?
Jonathan Groff The Sequel to the Sequel's Sequel The Sequel's to the Sequel's thread filled up. I don't think anyone has started a new thread. If so, please let me know. I primarily like Groff for his child-bearing hips, but he's a good actor and singer, too. I suppose I could just stalk him to grab a photo with him? He seems pretty open to such things. Is that okay to do? How long after the restraining order does it usually take for an actors to lash out? Thanks!
The Republican response to the AMTRAK crash was, on the day after the recent crash, to [bold]cut[/bold] spending. WTF? Are they trying to punish AMTRAK? Does that ever work? What vile, awful people, the disgusting fuckers in Congress. Obviously AMTRAK would benefit from funding for safety upgrades. Some people, especially here, ridiculously complain that "government can't do anything right". Maybe it's because government is underfunded. That goes for AMTRAK, the Post Office, and elsewhere. The Congress [bold]cut[/bold] funding for Embassy security, and then blames Hillary for her imaginary failures at Benghazi. The Republicans in Congress are just disgusting.
Some words and phrases have come in and out of style over the years. For example, the word "ought" is nearly extinct. Same for "shall." These were very commonly used in the earlier half of the twentieth century. Historical dramas seem to have people do research to ensure the costumes and sets are historically accurate. Why don't they hire linguists or language historians, too? Or do they? Also, nowadays, characters say "We need to talk." This week, employees told Mr. Selfridge, "You need to see this." Was that any way to speak to one's boss in London in the 1920s? Am I the only one who is annoyed by that fact that people who aren't doctors are so presumptuous that they now tell others what they "need?" I know I'm not the only one bothered by script dialogue language.
I would love to read this but will believe it when I see it.
Looks like the out of the closet, wait, back in the closet...no, out...wait, what!? he's not even gay?! Oh wait, back out! Ah who cares - the welsh actor and the Spanish beauty are seemingly no longer a couple, so, in keeping with grand Datalounge tradition, let's continue with our assumption that every hot guy who appears next to Jon in any photo is his new boyfriend. Of course, we all know what happens when you assume...you make an ass out of yourself. Carry on fellow asses!
They are calling her fat, ugly, and a hippo crit. They're asking why it's okay for her to play with her sister's vagina and not be called a child molester while Josh Duggar plays with his sisters' vaginas and he's automatically labelled a child molester. It's such a double standard. She can be a movie star and Golden Globe winner and critical darling on HBO while Josh has to resign from his job in disgrace. It's really unfair.
I seriously hate everything about the god-forsaken place. Its crappy American-wannabe stores, its garage sale-like "businesses". Do you ever wish you were not here.
I thought that was him being a rather poor sport. He should have relaxed and had fun with it. The rest of the team had fun with it and came off looking good, dancing and having a good time. Clay Matthews was an okay replacement but it would have been epic to see Aaron Rodgers do Beyonce and shake his booty to Bootylicious. Did Olivia Munn not let him do it?

... at the White House. The purpose of the summit was to bang heads with the top names in tech and come up with ways to improve healthcare.gov. Evidently, the CEO of Zynga (the company that makes Farmville) asked Obama to pardon Snowden. (Why was the CEO of Zynga at this summit anyway?) Evidently, the president declined. I'm pretty sure that he will eventually pardon him though. Obama knows what's good for his brand and he does act out of vanity from time to time. I am predicting that he creates a firestorm by drawing common cause with Snowden and pardoning him on his way out of office.
This is inspired by various Reddit threads. So post your own, real-life experience. I'll go first. I've had several but I'll tell a few here. Me and my best friend used to be fascinated with a local cemetery. It's claim to fame is that a notorious killer is buried their in an unmarked grave. Anyway, the cemetery is gorgeous. Lots of roses and other flowers. Lots of old statues. The huge gates at the entrance used to be kept open at night. So my friend and I would drive in there and explore. Well, one night we were exploring and we had stopped the car and had the lights off for some reason. This would have been about 1 AM. I noticed headlights ahead and told my friend that we might be busted. Instead, I see the headlights pull into a mausoleum. The mausoleum is beautiful and was decorated in that faux-Egyptian style and even had a stylized sun disk with wings over the top of it. Anyway, it turned out to be a black limo. Out of the limo exits the driver who opens the door and lets three or four men out. The drive gets back into the car. The 3 or 4 men are dressed in black suits and walk up to the mausoleum, unlock it, and walk in. We freaked out! Our lights were off but we were afraid they would still see us because we weren't that far away from them. So we wait for about 30 minutes hoping they would come out and leave. Nope! After about 45 minutes we decide that we can't sit here much longer and my friend says we need to start the car and casually drive off with our lights off. So we do that. Instead of going down the road that leads right past the mausoleum we decide to take a road we had never taken before and prayed that it led to the exit. Out of nowhere behind us comes a car that had it's headlights off as well. It turns on it's high beams, scaring the shit out of us. The car is riding my bumper. I immediately floored it. We made it out of the gate and that second car, a black car, just stopped half-way out of the gate. We went back a few weeks later and found that the huge gate was closed and locked. Now, every time we go back at night it's closed and locked so we think they did that because of us. I've include a picture of a similar mausoleum. This is not the same one but this is very close to what it looked like. As to what was going down, we think it was a secret society of some form or another. Because none of the men had anything in their hands and because they were in the mausoleum so long I think that there is like a trapped door or secret entrance or tunnel there that they use to attend their meetings.
[quote]He was a child at the time of the incident and according to the police reports there was only touching no intercorse seriously you people need to find god!!!! I'm not saying his actions were acceptable but god forgives everyone even pedophiles and josh is not a pedophile he was a child touching other children a pedophile is a adult who touches a child inappropriately I was a victim of molestation as a child I forgave my offender just like I believe if he asked GOD, GOD himself would forgive him
I have an acquaintance whose boyfriend has Asperger's Syndrome. Their relationship is odd to say the least, but I always wondered if the sex is more "mechanical" or " perfunctory ". I cannot image passion or lust from the boyfriend with Asperger's.
I redid my business website and it looks fresh, modern and professional. The package I paid for lets me integrate my shopping cart with Facebook. In fact, with a press of a few buttons it will take my photos and make a Facebook store for me. Fine. I never signed up for Facebook. I have my hands full with other online tasks, but I would sign my business up IF I knew it would generate sales. Otherwise I don't need it. Question: Does anyone have real experience integrating their retail business with Facebook? Did you notice increased sales? Is it worth it? I don't want to sign up, have a FB presence, hate it and then abandon it.
Next time don't be so fucking mouthy, bitch!
As requested. Was Michael Pitt a complete asshole towards JGL?
I just watched this last night and what a bizarre and fascinating film it is. I think it's considered some kind of cult/camp classic isn't it? Gorgeously filmed (Harry Stradling was DP) but the script has everyone so sarcastic and hostile. It's over the top campy at times. And Crawford looks like a caricature of herself at this point: big, red clown mouth, huge dark painted on eyebrows, yet she's supposed to be this beauty who all the men desire. Mercedes McCambridge is a hoot, so butch and hysterically angry through the whole thing. She hates Crawford's character so much (and apparently she hated Crawford just as much in real life) that it's palpable. I loved Peggy Lee's title song though.
Opera companies, ballet companies, and symphony orchestras -- which of the three stands the best chance of surviving for another century? How about a poll? Just for fun, we added a few more?
Was Dr. Tony Jones from 'General Hospital' ever this hot on the show ? Pic is from After Dark Magazine in 1981. Maule joined GH in 1984 Woof.
How about the gay hookups on that show.
I am fascinated by the nipples that appear to be falling off the pecs. I don't like puffy nipples.
Look out Atlanta, Chicago and Miami! Did anyone see the Boston show? When I heard about the Boston event, I figured it was a one-time thing like an evening at 92Y. But a tour? What do they talk about? Is it a new ad libbed conversation each time or a planned show? Can they really hold any interest just blabbering and giggling for an hour? Who's the audience?
..and what year was it?
In response to the other thread, I thought I'd come out of the closet and admit that, yes, I actually love the following songs: "Afternoon Delight" -- Starland Vocal Band "The Lady in Red" -- Chris Deburgh "What's Up?" -- 4 Non-Blondes No, they're not the greatest song, but they're enjoyable and harmless and extremely well-produced. Share your guilty pleasures!
I never quite get it. Or is it just because he's famous and gay? Any thread about him is always hundreds and hundreds of responses long, I can never make head or tail of them.
Why don't they put railings in front of the ledge where you stand for a subway? It would prevent people from either tripping and falling or getting pushed. Seems like a no-brainer to me with minimal cost.
So I guess he isn't the great genius everyone said.
I watched it again. Not the best episode of Mad Men ever, but neither was the pilot, and this gave a little bit of hope laced with skepticism. I'll miss this show.
He was totally playing himself in "In And Out". He still looked hot then..hadn't started dying his hair that blue-black crap that he does now. Who's he trying to kid anyway?
If you've been in favor of TPP, think again. The bill now includes a $700 million cut in Medicare for your grannies.
Anyone in the US watching? What's going on with Chris Pine's hair? He still looks hot with a ratty t-shirt
What made the song "Bad Blood" so bad that the producers felt the need to add a rapper onto the track to make it better? I think it made it worse! The song was good enough without polluting it with ebonics! Taylor Swift has been on fire with all her hits! She doesn't need a rapper on any of her songs! This is a charity thing, isn't it!? This is Taylor Swift helping out a poor black rapper, helping him to potentially score a #1 hit.
Or do they get pussy-whipped into it?
Because the old one vanished. I'm starting The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer--so far it looks good.

Shades of Snowpiercer. I know global warming gets all the attention, but global cooling would be far worse. We are living in an interglacial era. Every time the world gets closer to our current peak, it quickly plunges into another ice age. These interglacial periods appear to have some correlation with sunspot activity. The latest news on sunspot activity is similar to other cold spells. Although sunspot data only goes back a few hundred years, the "mini-ice age" from 1250-1850 leads to this detail- [quote]…if history is a guide, it is safe to say that weak solar activity for a prolonged period of time can have a negative impact on global temperatures in the troposphere which is the bottom-most layer of Earth’s atmosphere - and where we all live. There have been two notable historical periods with decades-long episodes of low solar activity. The first period is known as the “Maunder Minimum”, named after the solar astronomer Edward Maunder, and it lasted from around 1645 to 1715. The second one is referred to as the “Dalton Minimum”, named for the English meteorologist John Dalton, and it lasted from about 1790 to 1830. Both of these historical periods coincided with below-normal global temperatures in an era now referred to by many as the “Little Ice Age”. In addition, research studies in just the past couple of decades have found a complicated relationship between solar activity, cosmic rays, and clouds on Earth. This research suggests that in times of low solar activity where solar winds are typically weak; more cosmic rays reach the Earth’s atmosphere which, in turn, has been found to lead to an increase in certain types of clouds that can act to cool the Earth. Here is the link that got me thinking. Notice how the planet is at the peak temperature. Hundreds of thousands of years of data, all showing that we are on the cusp of a new ice age.
Best screen presence. Most alluring. Most fun to watch. And if you could hook with only 1.
Ben Savage will be playing Cory Matthews once again! The actor has joined the cast of "Girl Meets World," the sequel series to the '90s ABC comedy "Boy Meets World," according to the Disney Channel. Danielle Fishel will also reprise her "Boy Meets World" role as Topanga Lawrence for the pilot. Disney Channel confirms the pilot is still in "very early stages of development" and that a nationwide casting search is still underway for 13-year-old Riley Matthews. "Girl Meets World" will follow Cory (Savage) and Topanga's (Fishel) teen daughter Riley. "Boy Meets World" creator Michael Jacobs is behind the project. The cast for "Girl Meets World" will also include Maya, Riley's edgy best friend. Sounds a bit like Shawn Hunter to us! In the new series Cory will be a history teacher, just like his "Boy Meets World" mentor Mr. Feeny. "I'm very excited for Disney and [creator] Michael Jacobs," William Russ, who played Cory's dad Alan Matthews on the series, said in a statement to HuffPost TV. "They are a great team and will produce an exceptional show, I have no doubt." Anthony Tyler Quinn, who played Mr. Turner on "Boy Meets World," told HuffPost TV he'd be interested in appearing on the new series. "'Boy Meets World' was and continues to be these beautiful brushstrokes in my life," he said. "It was a wonderful experience, and I think Michael's going to create something fresh. I'd love to be a part of it." Tell us: Are you excited that Cory and Topanga might be back on TV?

Thursday, May 21, 2015 WEST PALM BEACH — In a move that shocked and angered circumcision opponents around the globe, an attorney representing a jailed Boynton Beach woman and her 4½-year-old son on Wednesday dropped a federal lawsuit aimed at stopping the boy’s father from having him circumcised. Social media sites that have been raising money for Heather Hironimus’ legal battle exploded with the news that attorney Thomas Hunker dropped the suit two days after he tried to persuade U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra that nothing less than the boy’s life was at stake. Even attorney Ira Marcus, who represents the boy’s Boca Raton father, Dennis Nebus, said he was stunned. “I almost fell off my chair,” he said. “It’s shocking because so much time and effort went into doing this and taking up the court’s time and the stress and anxiety.” While Hunker couldn’t be reached for comment, he said in an email to Hironimus’ supporters — many of whom helped pay her legal fees — that the decision to drop the suit was made with her consent. Hironimus was arrested in Deerfield Beach last week for hiding her son from Nebus and authorities. Charged with interfering with child custody, she is being held without bond in the Broward County jail. The boy was turned over to Nebus. In the email, which was blasted by supporters, Hunker said it was clear at Monday’s hearing that Marra “seemed quite hostile to our position” that the circumcision would violate the boy’s constitutional rights and endanger his life. “Thus, it became clear that the only foreseeable outcome of proceeding with this case would be an unfavorable order which could potentially hurt the cause and future efforts to establish a child’s right to object to circumcision,” he wrote. Further, the email said Hunker worried that the ongoing litigation would inflame a Palm Beach County family court judge, who upheld Nebus’ rights to have his son circumcised and could declare Hironimus unfit to raise her son. “At this juncture, we need to conserve resources to help Heather get out of jail and preserve her custody rights,” he wrote. “That is my mission now.” Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Jeffrey Gillen issued a warrant for her arrest in March after she defied his order to appear in court to turn her son over to Nebus. In the order, Gillen called Hironimus’ actions “reprehensible.” In a Facebook post, Hironimus’ mother, Mary, agreed that placating Gillen is now key. “We are not only trying to save the circumcision now, but to save (the boy) himself and to have him safe with this Mother and Grandmother,” she wrote on the Facebook page of the anti-circumcision group Save Our Sons. “Hopefully, Judge Gillen will realize that this decision was a Godsend for him and respond more favorably.” But many supporters said they would no longer pay Hironimus’ legal fees, explaining that they were funding a battle against circumcision, not a custody fight. “This was the case we needed to walk into the U.S. Supreme Court,” said David Wilson, a Cocoa Beach man who on Monday protested outside the federal courthouse. “This would have been the beginning of the end for underage cutting in America.” Instead, Wilson said, Hironimus “went from being a hero in this movement to nothing.” As part of the federal lawsuit, Hunker hadn’t sued just Nebus but also Gillen and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, claiming they all were violating the boy’s rights. Hunker also had filed an emergency motion in state court asking that Gillen and all other Palm Beach County judges be disqualified from deciding what began as a simple paternity lawsuit. Shortly after he dropped the federal lawsuit, Hunker withdrew that motion. Nebus, the owner of Excalibur Granite & Marble in Pompano Beach, filed the paternity suit in 2010, a month after the boy was born, to establish his rights to raise his son. In 2012, as part of a parenting plan, Hironimus agreed the boy could be circumcised.

Wednesday night is the last show. I haven't watched Dave in awhile but I watched Monday and Tuesday this week and enjoyed Hanks and Murray.
I post a lot about what goes on in my life on DL most of it involves my crush and what happened to me in college (graduated six months ago). Anyway, I have read on my threads people saying things along the lines of: this guy just sits around crafting stories, none of it is real. No. everything I have ever posted on DL has happened in REAL life in REAL time, and the pictures I have posted are of REAL people I have interacted with. I don't believe crafting a persona and spinning tales around said persona; I know some people like doing it but I'm not one of them.I'm sure most of DL post factually about their life.
Do we know anything about him?
Which is worse in the public eye?
all the same time? For instance, in this life that I know my family is dead, I'm in my early 60s. Physically I'm not well at all and can't work. Is the theory that there are other universes where I'm still young, my family is still young and healthy, my pets are alive and so on? Maybe a third or fourth or more where the same people are involved (a specific) family, but things are different in some other ways? I read some things I didn't really understand (yes, not the brightest bulb in the box here) If there is such a theory does anyone understand it and of those does anyone think it could be true? Also, if it is true is there anyway to get there? I miss my family so much. I hate being sick and in pain all the time. Not to sound like a baby but I want my mom and my dad. I remember when I was in my 20s I had a big surgery and my father was there when I woke up and I was in so much pain and I could see how helpless he looked being unable to help me. He did the one thing he could do. He took my hand. I'll never forget what that feels like. When I have surgery now, when I wake up I'm alone or among strangers. While other people in my room have visitors I have none. I get my curtain drawn because I don't want the other patients' visitors to see me cry because I miss my family so much. Does anyone think when we die we get to one of those other universes? Or is it all just some idiotic fantasy? I'm like Old Man River, tired of living but scared of dying.
I was raised on this chow. Chicken from the supermarket roasting display, meatloaf, frozen pizza (olive oil drizzled prior to heating for that special touch). I have to say I never much liked boiled hot dogs. Nor am I nostalgic for my mother's "signature" dish of minute rice, breakfast sausages and applesauce (no, it was not a breakfast item). We had Worcestershire sauce in the house for homemade Chex mix FROM SCRATCH. Any other fond memories of Mom's home cooking?
May 21st, 2015 Josh Duggar, the eldest son of conservative icons Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting fame, has announced that he is resigning from his position at the Family Research Council following revelations that he molested several young girls, including some of his sisters according to TMZ, when he was a teenager. In Touch magazine first published details from the 2006 police report that showed that when Duggar was 14 he confessed to his father that he had sexually molesting five young girls. But Jim Bob waited more than a year before alerting the police and his since tried to keep the felony investigation out of the public eye. “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends,” the now 27-year-old Josh Duggar told People magazine in a statement Thursday. “I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.” In his role as executive director of the Family Research Council’s political action arm, Josh Duggar has fought to prevent LGBT Americans from receiving discrimination protection and publicly argued that the gay “lifestyle” is harmful to children. Just last month, the Duggar family announced that it was endorsing Mike Huckabee for president in 2016 and as of Thursday evening are still featuring on the home page of his website. UPDATE — 7:23 p.m. ET: Family Research Council President Tony Perkins issued the following statement in reaction to Duggar’s resignation: [quote]“Today Josh Duggar made the decision to resign his position as a result of previously unknown information becoming public concerning events that occurred during his teenage years. [quote]Josh believes that the situation will make it difficult for him to be effective in his current work. We believe this is the best decision for Josh and his family at this time. We will be praying for everyone involved.”

Speaking to GQ the Jurassic World star says: [quote]"I was a jokester, I had a dirty mind, and a dirty sense of humor. And I was naked a lot. I was naked all the time. It was just recently, in the last few years since I've become an adult, that I've learned to keep my clothes on. And even then, I really haven't. I got yelled at by NBC for getting naked. [While filming multiple takes of a Parks and Recreation scene in which he was supposed to shock Amy Poehler by being naked in a doorway, in one take he did it for real.] I got suspended from the track team in high school for getting naked on the track bus. I was always getting naked. I thought it was hilarious. I didn't understand how somebody could be so offended by me just taking my junk out." (more at the link)
Take a gander at this. Now I'm not naive enough to believe everything I see in porn is real but... is everything fake? I mean, does penetration ever occur or is it all cleverly edited? :/
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.

There is a huge paradox surrounding what is supposed to be the crowning achievement of Obama's second term, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), a bill whose contents virtually nobody is familiar with or will be before it passes into law. That's not the paradox: the paradox is that back in October 2009, the White House Press secretary said that "the President has returned to a stance of transparency and ethics that hasn't been matched by any other White House.... the President believes strongly in transparency... that transparency in that way in the best policy." Or to paraphrase Nancy Pelosi, "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it." And yet while everyone seems to have an opinion on the final formulation of the TPP bill, especially Elizabeth Warren and her circle of progressive democrats who have emerged as the bill's most vocal critics, the truth is that none have actually read it for the simple reason that anyone who is familiar with its text could be jailed for disclosing its contents.

[quote]A lot of Republicans who want to be president got their picture taken with a child molester 21 May 2015 With so many candidates lining up, many voters may become confused by which white guy is the white guy that all the white guys are gonna vote for. With that in mind — and with a Twitter assist from former Family Research Council employee Josh Duggar of the sexing and baby-making Duggar breeding line– here are some photos of GOP candidates taken with Josh. There probably won’t be any new ones forthcoming from him despite the fact that he is expected to have a lot of time on his hands going forward because it turns out he was pretty forward with where he put his hands when with the young gals… including his sisters. Ew. During Josh’s brief public career shaming the pervs for Jesus, he was always willing to gladhand a politician who came to him hoping some of that Duggar magic would rub off. Now it seems it may not have “technically” been “magic.” Ew. Again. Remember to bookmark this for the future, when the debates roll around. You — and the Republicans in the photos — can thank me later for the reminders. He’s not running, but here is Josh with RNC anagram Reince Priebus This would be Josh with Iraq flip-flopper Jeb Bush…who would rather be photgraphed with his brother right now Oh Look, here is Josh with Iowa breadbag lady Joni Ernst, who could be a VP contender. Sure, why not? Here he is with Bobby Jindal and Rush Limbaugh’s brother, Fredo. Jindal is the only candidate whose candidacy this photo will absolutely have no impact on. With super smart guy, Rick Perry Here is Josh with Koch Industries Employee of the Year, Scott Walker Josh with Duggar family favorite Mike Huckabee Rick Santorum, because, of course Let’s not forget Ted Cruz!
What kind of fuckery is this? It's a moving staircase, for Christ's sake.
Outcry over proliferation of sex shops! Who will think of the children?! FILTH! Although, I thought everyone bought this stuff online now and people go on Grindr to hook up. And who buys DVDs anymore? "Along with its handsome brownstones and quiet side streets, Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood is known for liberal politics, social activism and a large gay professional class that is accepting of all sorts of lifestyles. But lately, with the opening of the fifth gay sex shop on a five-block stretch of Eighth Avenue, residents are asking if enough is more than enough. “It’s starting to feel like Times Square around here,” said Stephen P. Williams, a writer who has told his teenage son not to get into conversations with the men outside the stores. In large display windows, the shops advertise things like Boy Butter (“a revolutionary creamy formula”), penis-enlargement systems (“used successfully for 30 years with 15 million satisfied customers”) and peep show viewing booths (“$10 entrance, 12-hour access”). They are between 18th and 23rd Streets, with names that are displayed prominently in blue neon lights and on bright-colored awnings: Rainbow Station, Blue DVD, the Blue, Splosh and, most recently, Vibe. Several of the shops are open 24 hours. Neighbors complain that they find used condoms and latex gloves in front of their homes, have light bulbs removed to darken their vestibules and see men having sex in the hours before dawn on playground benches. They say male hustlers are drawn to the area, including men who charge for sex in the booths in the rear of the shops. He said men typically come to the store to pick up someone and then go elsewhere for sex. Two weeks ago, he said, he had to call the police when a hustler tried to steal a customer’s wallet. Mr. Fernando said that after patrons started snapping pictures with their smartphones, the man ran away. How aggressively to regulate New York City’s sex shops has been a sensitive matter for elected officials, including the gay politicians who represent Chelsea. They are caught between gay residents who see the shops as a quality-of-life issue and want them shut and gay patrons, who say a crackdown would be a return to the days when the police raided their bars and social clubs to intimidate and humiliate gay men."
Yesterday I was fooling around with a buddy of mine, and his technique is very basic -- hugging and kissing and rubbing and jerking and a little oral. He reminded me of Thom, an old high school boyfriend (who has since passed away) and so I closed my eyes and thought about Thom and the things we used to do with each other, and soon thereafter I had a very satisfying climax. I hadn't thought about Thom in months, but driving home what should come on the radio but our song -- "Love will Keep us Together." My heart was full of love and sadness at the unexpected but happy coincidence of hearing our love song right after I imagined I was back in his arms. Weird, right?

Two Argentine judges are under fire after cutting the sentence of a paedophile in half on the grounds that his six-year-old victim was gay. Describing the now 11-year-old as having a “homosexual orientation”, appeal court judges Horacio Piombo and Benjamín Sal Llargués decided to cut the prison sentence for Mario Tolosa from six years to three, as they felt his victim was “accustomed to sexual behaviour” following years of abuse by his father. “It cannot be considered abuse when a boy is used to being abused in his home and is accustomed to sexual behaviour and has a homosexual orientation,” they said in their ruling. Calls to impeachment the judges have spread across the country after the verdict came to light last week. Justice Piombo defended the decision on Monday, saying that before Mr Tolosa molested the boy, the child had already suffered “the initiation by his father into the worst of worlds, leading him to depravation.” The judge said that as a result of that experience, the boy had showed “signs of a transvestite conduct, of conduct we had to take into account.” Adding that Mr Tolosa’s actions could not be considered “gravely outrageous” in legal terms because his victim was already “making a precocious choice” about his sexuality. The ruling dates from last year but become public last week as prosecutors at Buenos Aires’ Supreme Court decided to appeal the verdict. The Argentine Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Trans have demanded the judges be removed from the bench, saying the ruling placed the victim "in the position of a suspect". Interior Minister Florencio Randazzo said the ruling was "an embarrassment". "It's repugnant to say that the presumed sexual orientation of an abused six-year-old boy is a reason to reduce the sentence of the abuser," he added.

I have gone a few dates with a guy, a great guy (so far), who's over a year "sober". I'm a casual drinker, which he doesn't seem to have any problem with whatsoever. My two best friends, also casual drinkers, say this is a HUGE red flag, that alcoholics, even ones in recovery, are difficult to deal with. Sort of like dating a christian when you're an atheist. I have a college friend who is in recovery, and I adore her. Other than that, I don't have much interface with addicts, I guess. Have any DLers dated or are dating a recovering alcoholic? Was it worth it? Am I being ridiculous even asking this?

The world around you is not "real". You are not "real". We have a creator but we don't know what form the creator has. The creator may be an advanced A.I., such as in the Matrix or it may be advanced beings. The creator may even be us. It likely would have started with video games. As technology increased the games became so advanced that players were able to upload themselves into the games. Eventually super advanced video games gave rise to simulated universes. We already have very primitive simulated universes today. So the question is, do we have an external reality outside of the simulated universe we currently reside or are we ourselves just products of this simulated universe? If the latter is true we can never escape. If the former is true then upon our death we may wake up in the "real world". Author Phillip K. Dick was one of the first visionaries who realized that our reality is not "real", specifically that it is simulated. You can here his press conference he gave back in the 70s in the below clip. However, various philosophers through time have proposed similar things.

Glenn Beck’s been making a lot of predictions lately, and today is no exception. Beck warned that if Hillary Clinton wins the 2016 election, the “people are dead” and the country was going to be destroyed. Sounds ominous. It also doesn’t sound any different from any other prediction made by a right-winger ever. This sort of “the sky is falling, the sky is falling!” mentality isn’t unusual on the right-wing at all; Beck issued a similar warning before Romney lost, saying that his loss would mean Americans are “so dead inside … that they can no longer see the difference between good and evil, [and so] we have to be destroyed because we will be a remarkable evil on this planet.” Fast forward from 2012 to the present and Beck is now making a similar prediction about 2016 — this time, warning about the dire consequences if Hillary Clinton is elected: If she is the president of the United States, I swear to you, that is it, we are done. You can’t have all of the scandals that she has and be president of the United States. That means the people are dead. That means we have voted for destruction. If he’s still in broadcasting, I look forward to what Beck says about the 2020 elections, but somehow, I’m pretty sure I already know. Listen to his remarks below

I just watched Judy Garland's "A Star Is Born" and I've got to say that I find it shocking she didn't win the Oscar for that performance. There are so many scenes that were phenomenal: The Man That Got Away, the 'dinner show' sequence at home, the Academy Award scene, the dressing room breakdown scene, the screaming scene at home after Norman's death....any one of them would have propelled another actress onto an Oscar. It just boggles my mind that Grace Kelly's subdued performance beat this dazzling star turn. And everyone always talks about how amazing it is that The Man That Got Away is filmed in one, long take--and it is amazing, Cukor said no other actress in Hollywood could have done it that way--but there is also one extraordinarily long take in the 'dinner show' sequence that is nearly as jaw-dropping. It is a tour-de-force performance in every sense. Yes, her weight fluctuated (who cares?) and she does not always look her best (fault of the DP if you ask me; the lighting is downright bad in some scenes) but it is still Garland at her peak and she is thrilling. She was robbed of that Oscar.

I was off on an assignment overseas last week and I stayed at a great hotel (somewhere in the Mediterranean). Every morning at the breakfast buffet I saw the same obese American woman pile her plate(s) high with sausages, bacon, all kinds of fried crap, all kinds of cakes and pastries. I was disgusted. I kept thinking, why don't you lay off the greasy chow for just ONE FUCKING DAY and have a salad? Why pork yourself up like that in front of everyone on sight? Then today at the supermarket checkout line I looked at the grocery basket of the obese guy in front of me and guess what: frozen pizzas, chocolate bars, muffins, sausages, bags of crisps. How fucked up is that! How are we the bad guys for judging fat people and looking down on them, when that's how they fucking eat? I have no problem fat-shaming the fuck out of anyone who eats like that.
SALON MAGAZINE- U.S. troops are now operating openly in Ukraine. The "paper of record's" "coverage" is an embarrassment, per usual ----- As of mid-April, when a Pentagon flack announced it in Kiev, and as barely reported in American media, U.S. troops are now operating openly in Ukraine. Now there is a lead I have long dreaded writing but suspected from the first that one day I would. Do not take a moment to think about this. Take many moments. We all need to. We find ourselves in grave circumstances this spring. At first I thought I had written what newspaper people call a double-barreled lead: American soldiers in Ukraine, American media not saying much about it. Two facts. Wrong. There is one fact now, and it is this: Americans are being led blindfolded very near the brink of war with Russia. One cannot predict there will be one. And, of course, right-thinking people hope things will never come to one. In March, President Obama dismissed any such idea as if to suggest it was silly. “They’re not interested in a military confrontation with us,” Obama said of the Russians—wisely. Then he added, unwisely: “We don’t need a war.” Don’t need a war to get what done, Mr. President? This is our question. Then this one: Washington is going to stop at exactly what as it manipulates its latest set of puppets in disadvantaged countries, this time pretending there is absolutely nothing thoughtless or miscalculated about doing so on Russia’s historically sensitive western border? The pose of American innocence, tatty and tiresome in the best of times, is getting dangerous once again. The source of worry now is that we do not have an answer to the second question. The project is plain: Advance NATO the rest of the way through Eastern Europe, probably with the intent of eventually destabilizing Moscow. The stooges now installed in Kiev are getting everything ready for the corporations eager to exploit Ukrainian resources and labor. And our policy cliques are willing to go all the way to war for this? As of mid-April, when the 173rd Airborne Brigade started arriving in Ukraine, it looks as if we are on notice in this respect. In the past there were a few vague mentions of an American military presence in Ukraine that was to be in place by this spring, if I recall correctly. These would have been last autumn. By then, there were also reports, unconfirmed, that some troops and a lot of spooks were already there as advisers but not acknowledged.

Two intelligence sources tell NBC News that the year before the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, a “walk in” asset from Pakistani intelligence told the CIA where the most wanted man in the world was hiding – and these two sources plus a third say that the Pakistani government knew where bin Laden was hiding all along. The U.S. government has always characterized the heroic raid by Seal Team Six that killed bin Laden as a unilateral U.S. operation, and has maintained that the CIA found him by tracking couriers to his walled complex in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The new revelations do not necessarily cast doubt on the overall narrative that the White House began circulating within hours of the May 2011 operation. The official story about how bin Laden was found was constructed in a way that protected the identity and existence of the asset, who also knew who inside the Pakistani government was aware of the Pakistani intelligence agency’s operation to hide bin Laden, according to a special operations officer with prior knowledge of the bin Laden mission. The official story focused on a long hunt for bin Laden’s presumed courier, Ahmed al-Kuwaiti. … The NBC News sources who confirm that a Pakistani intelligence official became a “walk in” asset include the special operations officer and a CIA officer who had served in Pakistan. These two sources and a third source, a very senior former U.S. intelligence official, also say that elements of the ISI were aware of bin Laden’s presence in Abbottabad. The former official was emphatic about the ISI’s awareness, saying twice, “They knew.”
Merlin star Bradley James has landed the title role in Damien, Lifetime’s straight-to-series drama follow-up to 20th Century Fox’s classic horror film The Omen. In his TV directing debut, Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth) will helm and executive produce the first episode. Produced by Fox TV Studios, the six-episode Damien follows the adult life of Damien Thorn (James), the mysterious child from the 1976 film who has grown up, seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist, the most feared man throughout the ages. Damien, slated to premiere in 2015, is written and executive produced by Glen Mazzara via his 44 Strong Productions. Ross Fineman, who developed the project alongside Mazzara, executive produces through his Fineman Entertainment. Pancho Mansfield also serves as executive producer.
Our leadership keeps thinking that the answer to economic growth and ultimately job creation is more innovation, and we continue to invest billions in it. But an innovation is worthless until an entrepreneur creates a business model for it and turns that innovative idea in something customers will buy. Because we have misdiagnosed the cause and effect of economic growth, we have misdiagnosed the cause and effect of job creation. For the first time in 35 years, American business deaths now outnumber business births. Let's get one thing clear: This economy is never truly coming back unless we reverse the birth and death trends of American businesses. It is catastrophic to be dead wrong on the biggest issue of the last 50 years -- the issue of where jobs come from...when small and medium-sized businesses are dying faster than they're being born, so is free enterprise. And when free enterprise dies, America dies with it.

This is going to sound crazy but I've lived in NYC for 20 years and have never been to Fire Island before. I am thinking of just going for a weekend in July if I can still book something. Can someone please explain the layout and how it works. Are most of the bars, clubs, restaurants in Cherry Grove or Pines? Is the Pines just mostly residences? Which one should I stay in? Is it a 20, 30, 45 minute walk between the two? How should I go about my first visit? I don't mind spending a couple of thousand for one weekend stay. Please advise.
Most mornings last year, Terrance Wise left home before his three daughters woke up, to head to his $9.30-an-hour job at Burger King. And after working his second job of the day, as a $7.47-an-hour cook for Pizza Hut, he returned home 16 hours later, around 11 p.m., after his daughters had gone to sleep. “The kids started saying, ‘Daddy, we never get to see you,’ ” said Mr. Wise, 35. The situation worsened when Burger King cut back his hours and his feyonce was sidelined from work with a back injury. Despite his working two jobs, he and his family were evicted from their apartment, leaving them homeless for three months. On Thursday, the Fight for 15 campaign staged another wave of one-day strikes, this time in more than 150 cities. Mr. Wise was at the forefront in Kansas City, demonstrating outside McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s restaurants. “I have never seen a movement like this,” said Mr. Wise, in his crisp tenor voice. “We’ve seen how the civil rights movement won civil rights and we’ve seen how women won the right to vote. Those things weren’t given to us. People faced hoses and beatings. “Some people even died. We have to bring the same pressure for today’s times and make the companies listen to us. We have to do whatever it takes to win.” The pay for fast-food jobs was bad then and still is, he said. “What we’re asking for is realistic. We took in $1,200 the other day at lunch hour at my Burger King. The six workers there cost them $60 or so for that hour. So I see they can pay us $15,” Mr. Wise said. “My kids are living in poverty. It’s hard getting just the basic necessities, and they truly are the reason I fight,” Mr. Wise told the workers in the conference call. “It makes me angry, and you should be angry, that these billion-dollar corporations are robbing from my kids and your kids. So we’re going to have to stand up and fight back.” In September, they fought back. Mr. Wise led a sit-in outside a McDonald’s here, and 52 workers were arrested. Nearly 500 fast-food workers and supporters were arrested nationwide that day. The ones in Kansas City wore red T-shirts that read, “We Are Worth More,” and sang civil rights songs. Industry officials often call the movement a union front — indeed, the Service Employees International Union has spent more than $10 million to underwrite the movement, seeing it as a powerful lever to raise pay for low-wage workers nationwide. McDonald’s says it pays its workers competitive wages and warns that a wage increase will hurt small and medium-size restaurant businesses. Burger King says it has provided entry-level jobs for millions of workers. Brad Jones, Missouri director of the National Federation of Independent Business, a trade group, criticized the $15 fast-food wage effort. “They’re not looking at your independent pizza guy, your deli on the corner, your little bar and grill,” he said. “If these folks have to increase their wages by $5 an hour, it’s really going to be detrimental to them.” He said that if restaurants had to pay $15, they would hire far fewer young workers for entry-level jobs.
Looks like I'm gonna pass this one up also...
Until 2 p.m. on Monday, the ‘Our Church Staff’ section of St. John’s Lutheran Church and School’s website described Reverend Matthew Makela as an associate pastor who enjoys, “family, music, home improvement, gardening and landscaping, and sports.” Screenshots obtained by Queerty from a source who asked that his name be withheld shed light on some of the Reverend’s other favorite past times — namely nude make out sessions and sex with other men. Of course, how someone behaves between the sheets is really nobody’s business but his own, except when he’s actively doing damage to others. We’ve seen it time and time again. The lawmaker who spends his days fighting against gay rights and his nights cruising for bottoms, or the ex-gay activist who isn’t quite as ex-gay as he’d like everyone to believe. Which brings us back to Makela. The married father of five from Midland, Michigan doesn’t just preach Jesus’ love and help with bake sales. He also uses his position of authority and respect in his community to broadcast his self-loathing view on same-sex attraction. (more at the link)

I have always found it hard to make a friend. So finally, I was able to make a really good friend who was also around my age (finally) at school. But I felt like she acted dismissive towards me at times, and that I was less than all her other friends. I also found it hard to say no to me. So after she found out that my mom was in the same profession as us. She asked me if my mom can help out in helping her find her a job. And I couldn't think of a good way out of the situation so I said yes. As the semester wore on, she, at times, would not respond to my text messages and that pissed me off big time. Because we were near the end of our graduation, I decided you know what since there are no consequences, let's stop being friends, so I stopped answering her texts altogether. So I lost my one and only friend. Do I feel bad? Sort of, but having written out my feelings and the events that played out, I no longer regret my actions.

Person asking this question is either (1) A straight woman who isn't mobile enough to sniff, or (2) a man who never has and never will, got there
You're fucked, girl!
Is he on the D-list? A b-list? What the hell happened to his career?
From President Obama's speech today, see below. This is why it's important to vote Democratic in the November election. We need more representatives who will fight for the working man and woman, to keep these gains from being reversed and to move forward with more gains. When President Obama was elected, businesses where laying off 800,000 people a month; today, they are hiring 200,000 people a month. The unemployment rate has dropped from 10.9% in 2009 to 6.1% today. Over the last 4.5 years, businesses have created 10 million new jobs. This is the longest uninterrupted stretch of job creation in our nation's history. There are more job openings now than anytime since 2001. During the Obama Administration, the US has put more people back to work than in Europe, Japan, and every other advanced economy COMBINED. Of course, there are people who are still struggling, that is why we need to vote Democratic in all offices this November, to elect people who will fight for the working man and woman. We can't afford to have these gains reversed.
I felt bad for him as he was such an unattractive, chubby kid. Damn. Like is to Daily Mail.
I''m lesbian, 43, in good shape, financially solvent, educated and attractive. I''m very sexual and sometimes would just like to be able to hook up like gay guys do for some good, old fashioned sex. Are there any mature, attractive, adventurous, interesting women out there who would love to be wined, dined, entertained and then shagged senseless? I''m nice, drama-free, kind, thoughtful, a great cook and love fine wine and good conversation, but let''s face it, I really need some nice tits to play with and a wet, willing pussy to indulge in. Any takers? Would you?
Has anyone read it ? Just downloaded it from my local library. Thoughts ? THANKS
Harry Styles isn’t bisexual. Or, at least, he doesn’t think he’s bisexual. The 19-year-old appears on the cover of the September 2013 issue of British GQ, one of five covers featuring the boys of pop group One Direction. When speaking with the magazine, Styles was asked about claims he is bisexual. Questions about the teen singer’s relationship with Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw have been circulating the rumor mill for months. Styles insisted to GQ that he and Grimshaw aren’t dating and are just friends. "Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so," Stiles said. “I’m pretty sure I’m not." The rumors do sometimes bother the British crooner, who used to date country sweetheart Taylor Swift and has most recently been linked to model Kara Rose Marshall. "Some of them are funny," he told GQ of the rumors. “Some of them are ridiculous. Some of them are annoying. I don’t want to be one of those people that complains about the rumours. I never like it when a celebrity goes on Twitter and says, ‘This isn’t true!’ It is what it is; I tend not to do that. The only time it gets really annoying is that if you get into a relationship and you get into a place where you really like someone and then things are being written in the papers that affect them and how they see you. Then it can get annoying." Grimshaw has previously defended his relationship with Styles, saying there is nothing “weird" about it. "It seems totally normal to me: a DJ being mates with a pop star," he told Now magazine back in April. “It’s not like he’s some weirdo who can’t talk. He’s really funny. When anyone meets him, it’s like, ‘Oh yeah, he’s really nice and interesting.’ And they immediately understand." Although he might not be bisexual, Styles has extended some support to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. When anti-gay, quasi-religious group Westboro Baptist Church protested outside a July 19 One Direction concert in Kansas City, Mo., Styles tweeted a simple message in retort, saying he believes in equal rights and that God loves all.

05/21/2015 Josh Duggar has apologized following reports that he was investigated for allegedly sexually molesting five underage girls, some of whom are his sisters. In an statement posted on Facebook on Thursday, the 27-year-old who appears on TLC's "19 Kids and Counting," wrote: [quote]Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life. I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption. According to police reports obtained by In Touch, family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar allegedly waited more than a year before he turned in his then-teenage son over to Arkansas State Police for sex offenses, including forcible fondling. Due to a strange turn of events, the magazine reported that police were unable to conclude their investigation of the case, and the three-year statute of limitations prevented them from further pursuing any charges. Today, Josh Duggar is married with with three children and a fourth due in July. The Washington Post reports he has now resigned as executive director of Tony Perkins' conservative and anti-gay group, Family Research Council Action. Josh's parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar also addressed the allegations on Facebook on Thursday: [quote]Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives. When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before. Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God. We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family. We have challenges and struggles everyday. It is one of the reasons we treasure our faith so much because God’s kindness and goodness and forgiveness are extended to us — even though we are so undeserving. We hope somehow the story of our journey — the good times and the difficult times — cause you to see the kindness of God and learn that He can bring you through anything. The Duggar family has starred on TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" for 10 seasons. TLC has not responded to request for comment at this time.
Does anyone have any info on this guy? i can''t find any reviews. has anyone hired him or heard any stories? good or bad. thanks
I work in a small office with six other guys. We all share a bathroom and in the past two weeks somebody has jized on the floor like five times! I've stepped in it twice and its getting out of hand. I haven't discussed it with my co-workers and I'm not sure if I should. What is a polite way to address this? Should we hang a sign? Our cleaning lady only comes in once a week and I'm not cleaning it up.
Is this web site well-known in DL circles, or only since the Casey Anthony trial? I see a lot of people mentioning it.\ \ I joined it awhile back. I''m glad some have picked up on the craziness happening over there. lmao.

I thought it was next weekend. I live in one of the world's biggest vacation areas and I have a late afternoon doctor appointment tomorrow out of the area. I can't break the appointment because I need my medication renewed, I'm going to have to get in the traffic heading back home, with 100 billion other cars all funnelled into one roadway. Fuuuuuck. What are your holiday plans?

Blond, blue-eyed Wisconsin boy picked by the Houston Texans in the 2011 draft. Woefully underrated at first, and signed to a four-year, $18 million contract. After a mediocre first season with the Texans, he emerged in his sophomore season as one of *the* best NFL defensive players of all time, with 69 solo sacks and an astonishing 16 blocked *passes* -- a job for defensive backs, not defensive ends. He won NFL Defensive Player of the Year with an astonishing 49 out of 50 votes. Late Monday, the Texans wised up and signed him to a long-term, $100 million contract extension. Its $17 million annual value is the highest ever for a defensive player. J.J. is 6'5" and, as you can see from the photo below, 290 pounds of PURE MIDWESTERN BEEF. He is also officially on record as not having a girlfriend because he's "too busy to have a personal life." So: who's his bf?

Almost 5,000 disabled adults have been sexually abused in England in the past two years, figures show. The NSPCC said information from 106 councils showing 4,748 reports of sex abuse against disabled adults is the "visible peak" of what could be a bigger problem. People with learning difficulties were the victims of almost two thirds of reported incidents, the BBC found through Freedom of Information requests. Jon Brown, the NSPCC's lead on tackling sexual abuse, said while these figures focus on adults, disabled young people can also be victims. "We know with sexual abuse that many victims find it difficult to speak out," he told the BBC. "We know from research that disabled children and young people are three or four times more likely to be abused and neglected than children and young people who are not disabled. "Abusers are often very adept at identifying vulnerabilities. And, importantly, we know that it's less likely for children and young people to be believed as well." The BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme submitted requests for information to 152 councils with adult social services responsibilities. The Local Government Association told the BBC that "keeping people safe, including people with learning disabilities, is one of the most important things councils do". It said "councils work hard to ensure support is available when cases of abuse are referred".

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is continuing to woo gay voters in Iowa, just one month after she announced her intentions to become a “champion” for everyday Americans. On Tuesday, she visited the Mason City home of Gary Swenson and Dean Genth, one of the first same-sex couples to marry in the state when it became the fourth to welcome marriage equality in 2009. It was there she hosted a fireside chat with 65 guests, all of whom she took the time to chat with personally. “A delightful visitor today to our home,” Swenson wrote on Facebook. “If I liked her before, I like her now amazingly more. Personal one on one conversation revealed an erudite, personable, and capable individual.” During the chat, Clinton “embraced her ties to President Obama and cast herself as his tested and natural heir,” the Washington Post reports. “Hanging out with Hillary at our home today,” Genth wrote on Facebook, adding that the “Secret Service said that their dog was smitten by ‘Jack’ our fake Lab.” Aside from featuring gay voters in one of her first videos from the campaign trail, Clinton changed her social media icons to rainbows the day the Supreme Court began hearing arguments in cases challenging same-sex marriage bans in four states. Before that, she called upon the Supreme Court to rule favorably for marriage equality, calling marriage a “Constitutional right for all.” She emerged as a “champion” for LGBT rights early on, featuring a same-sex couple (with a super cute backstory) in a video initially announcing her intentions to run for president.

I've had a life-long nightmare with the post office. For the umpteenth time they put "vacant" on my mailbox. I've lived here for 2 1/2 years. It's a private bank of individual boxes inside a gated community. There have been literally weeks when I could not get paychecks, bills, magazines, anything. The last few places I've lived were even worse. Please don't tell me to call the "800" customer service number. Literally hundreds of calls later, I get a call from a heavily accented person who says says I should walk the 7 miles round trip to the post office, where after waiting in line for an hour, he will show me where my place is listed as vacant. He refuses to tell me how to correct the problem. The post office used to accuse my neighbors of stealing my ads and bills. This has never, ever been the case. Then the post office accused me of living in a poor neighborhood; also a total lie. You would not believe the horrible insults I've gotten over the years from Sen Reids and Shelley Berkeley's staff. I've been repeatedly blamed for moving too often. This is a lie, although it is my legal right to move when I choose. At least the NV Republican elected officials are sympathetic but powerless to do anything at all. Any advice? I wish the post office would go private. Maybe then I could get my paychecks from out of state without a nightmare.
even after a good bath it still stinks.
UK's Eurovision 2015 entry – we know we won't win so we haven't really bothered Electro Velvet’s Still in Love With You sounds like a nightmarish attempt to fuse Cotton Eye Joe, Doop by Doop and the collected works of Scatman John into a monstrous new form Stuart Heritage, Saturday 7 March 2015 22.55 GMT First, the obvious. The UK isn’t going to win Eurovision this year. It isn’t going to win because it never wins; because everyone hates us, because we insist on swanning into the final uncontested like a gaggle of entitled wazzocks, and because we’re not allowed to choose who actually represents us. The UK knows this, which might explain why it hasn’t really bothered this year. Our entry, revealed on Saturday night, is Still in Love with You by two people called Electro Velvet. Electro Velvet are comprised of a Mick Jagger impersonator and a woman who didn’t make it past the first round of BBC1 show The Voice, and Still in Love With You sounds like a nightmarish (and unnecessarily long) effort to fuse the DNA of Cotton Eye Joe, the 1994 song Doop by Doop and the collected works of Scatman John into a monstrous new form, possibly as a way to deliberately make Europe disassociate with us entirely. Nigel Farage is probably making it his ringtone as we speak. It’s a bad song, but the announcement was always going to be laden with anticlimax. We can’t win Eurovision with promising newcomers. We can’t win with beloved heritage acts. We can’t even win by reuniting a borderline-contemporary boyband with a huge continental fanbase. The message this year seems to be “We’ve tried everything and we’ve failed, so here’s something that sounds like a million ragtime-era dentist drills going off in unison. Hope you choke on it.” I’ve heard the song twice now – which is twice as many times as Eurovision viewers will hear it in May – and all I want to do is issue Electro Velvet with a set of fake passports, a bag of mixed-denomination banknotes and a message reading ‘It’s not too late. Get out while you still can’. I’m Still in Love with You doesn’t have the inspirational backstory of the Finnish entry, or the surprising catchiness of the Moldovan entry. We aren’t fielding an absurdly cute barefoot pixie girl like Iceland, or making a hard-hitting political statement like the Hungarians. We aren’t as catchy as Estonia. We aren’t as cool as Latvia. Instead, we’ve resuscitated The Crazy Frog. May God have mercy on our souls. It doesn’t help that I’m Still in Love with You was unveiled in such a half-cocked way, either. A low-rent, amateurish red button announcement farted out in the middle of Take Me Out is not a thing that naturally inspires a lot of confidence in a song. It’s hard to see how the BBC could look any more apologetic about the whole affair, with the possible exception of somehow releasing it on Ceefax at 3am. Hopefully, though, this is a nadir. Hopefully the BBC will make a bigger deal about next year’s entry. Hopefully they’ll even do the unthinkable and allow some level of public consultation on the song choice. This is a long shot, but maybe they’ll even televise it. Even if it’s just a week of shows on BBC Three, allowing us some form of control over our entry is the only way to stop terrible mistakes like this from ever happening again. Yes, we entered some stinkers during the bad old days of A Song For Europe. But at least they were stinkers we agreed on. They were our stinkers. This, meanwhile, is an unelected marauder. It’s Frank Underwood from House of Cards in song form. Well, enough’s enough. It feels mean-spirited to criticise Electro Velvet too harshly for this. After all, they didn’t write the song – that was the man who wrote the Jim’ll Fix It theme tune – and they certainly weren’t the ones who let it represent the UK. They’re just jobbing performers with an upsetting lack of taste. Our real scorn should be directed at the people who organise the UK entry; the ones who chose this song and hid their process from view. They’re the reason why we’re going to collectively hide our faces behind a pillow come May, and they deserve to be punished. Surely we can do better than this.
Some big controversy happened in Britain over this in a discussion on a talk show. Anyway, legally, why should a bakery have to make cakes for a gay wedding? What exactly is it that they won't do? Put two grooms on top, or won't make them if they find out that it's for a gay wedding. I've always been confused over this. I've heard people ask about bakeries being forced to make cakes for a Klan rally, and having to make cakes featuring controversial material. Would they be forced to make them (put certain images or writing). Can someone lay this all out for me?
Is anyone watching this?
Kinda cute, but I wonder what could be done for her to boost her kinda sad look. Does she need a chin implant?

"They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held."

[bold]No, the GOP Has Not Lost Its Lust for War[/bold] It seems like only yesterday that the conventional wisdom was that the Republican Party was on the cusp of a major shift in philosophy: The libertarians had made huge inroads into the party and the rank and file was very, very taken with their agenda—most especially their isolationist foreign policy. The fact that there are exactly two senators who might be called true libertarians, Rand Paul and Mike Lee, and no more than a handful in the House, did not strike political observers as evidence that Republican voters might not be quite as enthusiastic in this regard as they believed. For a piece entitled "Has the Libertarian Moment Finally Arrived?" in the New York Times magazine last August, journalist Robert Draper spent some time with a few "libertarian hipsters." He was apparently smitten with their hot takes on various issues, and how they were changing the face of Republicanism as we know it. Of course, there's nothing new about libertarians and conservatives walking hand in hand on issues of taxation, regulation, and small government, which orbit the essential organizing principle of both movements. Where libertarians and Republicans disagree most is on social issues like abortion, marriage equality, and drug legalization. (The libertarian-ish GOPers have found a nice rhetorical dodge by falling back on the old confederate line that the "states should decide," which seems to get them off the hook with the Christian Right, who are happy to wage 50 smaller battles until they simply wear everyone down or the Rapture arrives, whichever comes first.) But what Draper and many other beltway wags insisted had changed among the GOP faithful was a new isolationism which was bringing the rank and file into the libertarian fold. They characterized this as a return to "the real" Republican philosophy, as if the last 70 years of American imperialism never happened. Evidently, the ideological north star of the GOP remains Robert Taft, despite the fact that 95 percent of the party faithful have never heard of him. After quoting Texas Gov. Rick Perry saying that we should cut costs by closing prisons, Draper asserted: [quote]The appetite for foreign intervention is at low ebb, with calls by Republicans to rein in federal profligacy now increasingly extending to the once-sacrosanct military budget. And deep concern over government surveillance looms as one of the few bipartisan sentiments in Washington… The bipartisan "concern" over government surveillance is unfortunately overstated. Polling shows that it ebbs and flows depending on which party is doing it. And regardless of the sentiment, the default solution is to fiddle at the edges, legalize the worst of it, and call it "reform." (lots more at the link):

Can you imagine being a restaurant owner and having this crowd show up? I wonder how many of the dead and injured are employees and bystanders. I wonder how many of the shooters had carry and conceal permits. By ABC NEWS A shooting between biker gangs in a Waco, Texas, restaurant parking lot today left nine people dead, police said. In addition to the 9 people confirmed dead, many others were injured, according to ABC affiliate KXXV-TV in Waco. Everyone involved was a gang member, KXXV-TV reported. The shooting took place at the Twin Peaks Restaurant during a rival motorcycle gang fight, police said. The fight broke out just after noon and escalated into gun fire, police said. Waco police said officers were at the scene when the shooting started this afternoon. No officers were injured, police said. Twin Peaks and a nearby restaurant were temporarily locked down during the incident, according to KXXV.
Just watched a gay indie this weekend called 'Naked As We Came" in which Ryan Vigilant plays the gay son in a very dysfunctional family who ends up sleeping with his mother's caretaker (male). First time I'd ever seen him. I think I'd rank him as one of the top five best-looking actors I've seen in years. Very appealing, sexy and wholesome looking. Anybody know much about him? From my web searching, I can't find that he's been linked to any women.
Baidu trans is a Chinese translation app that enables users to photograph and identify objects. Take a picture of a pair of scissors, say, and Baidu trans will give you the Chinese characters for scissors with the English word ‘scissors’. While the app works pretty well at identifying inanimate objects, it is unable to identify people, and the results can be both amusing and eerily philosophic. So what better use for it than to load in the faces of Republicans? Baidu trans offers the best way to separate those who are too handsome from those who are British or those who are standup comedians. And then vote for Hillary

'Stable' Antarctic ice sheet may have started collapsing, scientists say Southern Antarctic Peninsula ice sheet losing ice 8,500 times the mass of the Great Pyramid of Giza every year, satellite data shows Karl Mathiesen, Thursday 21 May 2015 19.00 BST A vast slab of Antarctic ice that was previously stable may have started to collapse, according to new analysis of satellite data. Research published in the journal Science on Thursday found the Southern Antarctic Peninsula (SAP) ice sheet is losing ice into the ocean at a rate of 56 gigatons each year – about 8,500 times the mass of the Great Pyramid of Giza. This adds around 0.16mm per year to the global sea level. The sheet’s thickness has remained stable since satellite observations began in 1992. But Professor Jonathan Bamber of Bristol university, who co-authored the study, said that around 2009 it very suddenly began to thin by an average of 42cm each year. Some areas had fallen by up to 4m. “It hasn’t been going up, it hasn’t been going down – until 2009. Then it just seemed to pass some kind of critical threshold and went over a cliff and it’s been losing mass at a pretty much constant, rather large, rate,” said Bamber. Previous studies had found thinning was occurring on the SAP ice sheet but the cause has been a matter of conjecture. Ice sheets can thin for various reasons. Less snow can pile up on top of the sheet, the snow can become more compacted or the rate at which the ice is lost into the sea via glaciers can increase. The latter effect, to which the study attributes much of the observed thinning, can destabilise the sheet and cause it to collapse. Bamber said the findings were particularly concerning because the SAP ice sheet sits on land that slopes downward away from the sea. This allows currents of relatively warm water to push inland, undermining and further destabilising the sheet. “This part of Antarctica is believed to be inherently unstable. So what that means is you only need to give it a nudge and it will go into a different state. And it looks like its been nudged into a different state where it looks like it’s going to a considerable amount of mass for considerable amounts of time – years to decades,” he said. Bamber said further modelling of the sheet would be able to confirm whether or not the sheet had entered into a centuries-long irreversible collapse. The sheet contains enough water to raise the world’s oceans by 20cm – more than the rise caused by climate change over the whole 20th century. The SAP ice sheet is bordered by the ice sheets of West Antarctica and the Northern Antarctic Peninsula, both of which have begun catastrophic collapses that could raise sea levels by metres over the coming centuries. The mass currently being shed by the SAP ice sheet is more than half the amount being shed by the giant West Antarctic sheet. “If you add [the ice loss from Antarctic ice sheets] to what’s happening in Greenland you’re seeing a really worrying increase in mass loss from the ice sheets. It’s not plateauing, it doesn’t look like it’s stabilising. It just seems to be increasing,” said Bamber. But Andrew Shepherd, a professor of Earth observation at Leeds University, said the study had overestimated the effect of ice loss from below. He said a large reduction in snowfall and compacting of the snow could account for much of the thinning. “I think the new estimates of ice loss computed from them are far too high, because the glaciers in this sector just haven’t speeded up that much. It could be that a bigger chunk of the thinning is down to snowfall fluctuations than the authors have accounted for, and so I would be cautious about the new numbers until more information is to hand,” he said. “It’s very hard to see how we could have got the snowfall estimate wrong,” said Bamber. He said the study had used two sets of satellite data that measured different aspects of the ice – meaning the error would have to be replicated across both sets of results. “They are totally independent and they both give us the same result. That gave us a lot of confidence.”
As Brian reported this morning, the Republican National Committee continues to partner with the American Renewal Project, which is run by Christian Nationalist and anti-gay extremist David Lane and is affiliated with the far-right American Family Association. Lane is a busy guy these days. In addition to leading a training session at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, his American Renewal Project is gearing up for its next political prayer rally, this time hosted by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley in the important early primary state. Previous Response rallies were hosted by Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. All the events push David Lane’s divisive and exclusionary view of America as a nation founded by and for Christians — a view on display in an email alert Lane sent to his supporters last night. Lane’s letter opens with a typically distorted view of American history: Did you realize that America's Founders established Christianity as the official religion of America in the 13 Original state Constitutions? ... Then suddenly, following three and half centuries of meteoric rise and cultural distinction, a secular U.S. Supreme Court in 1963 pronounced that the Bible would no longer be the fixed point in which to structure and judge community. Lane’s opening misses a few minor historical points: the adoption of the Constitution, First Amendment, and Bill of Rights, and the fact that states with established official churches had disestablished them in the 18th and 19th centuries, long before the Supreme Court ruling Lane is complaining about. Speaking of the Supreme Court, Lane declares, “God defines marriage, not secularist crusaders of the superior court.” And in order to be “completely transparent and unclouded on God’s position on homosexuality,” he quotes several Bible verses, including one from Leviticus that a man who sleeps with another man “shall surely be put to death.” Lane denounces the American church for its “submission to secularists.” Egregious and scandalous is the Church’s submission to secularists, and the resignation of America’s Founder’s mission, “We do hereby Dedicate this Land, and ourselves, to reach the People within these shores with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to raise up Godly generations after us, and with these generations take the Kingdom of God to all the earth.” That’s another historical sleight-of-hand. In common usage, terms like “founders” and “founding fathers” typically refer to men involved in the Declaration of Independence and the writing and ratification of the Constitution. Lane’s quote comes from Robert Hunt, a leader of the British settlement at Jamestown nearly two centuries earlier. Republicans who attend Lane’s candidate forums, invite him to conduct trainings, or join him on all-expenses-paid trips to Israel, can’t really claim ignorance of his agenda, which is crystal clear, as he states in this week’s email alert: The American church has lost its commission in the public square, its purpose for being. Ultimately, unless we find the chart and compass used by Colonial America to establish Christianity as the official religion of America, America will no longer be.
Church of Scotland opens door for appointment of married gay ministers General assembly’s vote in favour of change allowing appointment of ministers in a same-sex marriage follows decision to approve clergy in civil partnerships Severin Carrell, Scotland correspondent, Thursday 21 May 2015 20.59 BST Ministers in a same-sex marriage could soon be working in Scottish parishes after the ruling body for the Church of Scotland took the first step in approving their appointment. In a further victory for liberal reformers, the general assembly of the Church of Scotland voted on Thursday to propose the historic change after agreeing last weekend to approve the appointment of gay ministers in civil partnerships. Last Saturday’s decision to allow congregations to appoint gay men and women in civil partnerships followed a protracted and often bitter dispute with traditionalists, which has seen ministers and congregations quit the Church in protest. Both decisions, which mark a major shift in the Church of Scotland’s attitudes to gay clergy, come as voters in Ireland prepare for an historic referendum on Friday on the legalising of same-sex marriage. Following the latest vote by 215 in favour to 195 against, the Church of Scotland’s presbyteries will now be consulted and asked to approve the plan to extend the same rights to married gay ministers by the end of 2015. If a majority agree to it, the law change will be put to a final vote at next year’s general assembly. The liberalisation of Church policy is described as allowing individual congregations to opt out of traditional church teaching – by appointing gay ministers – rather than requiring all churches to follow the same policy. The Very Rev Prof Iain Torrance, convenor of the Church’s theological forum, told a general assembly the new policy was a legal process which extended to married gay ministers the same rights already given to those in civil partnerships. He insisted the measure would not change the Church’s traditional stance on marriage, nor amount to a recognition of the validity of same-sex marriage. His forum was now working on a review of the theology of gay marriage. Speaking after the vote, the Very Rev David Arnott, coordinator of the Church’s principal clerk’s office said: “The general assembly understood this to be a logical extension of the benefits which accrue to those in civil partnership.” The Torrance motion was accepted after a rival proposal, to defer the decision for two years until the theological forum’s report was completed, was rejected by 213 votes to 205 against.
Ireland to hold referendum on gay marriage in May Campaigners welcome deputy prime minister’s announcement, as latest opinion poll shows 71% of electorate would vote yes Henry McDonald in Dublin, Tuesday 16 December 2014 19.41 GMT A referendum on legalising gay marriage in Ireland will be held in May, the Republic’s deputy prime minister announced on Tuesday evening. Tánaiste and Irish Labour leader Joan Burton confirmed that the cabinet in Dublin had agreed to hold the vote then. “The fact that this referendum is now to take place is a mark of the progress that has taken place in this country in recent years and decades, and indicates the extent to which attitudes to lesbian and gay people have changed,” Burton said in Government Buildings. A gay Christian group was among the first to welcome the announcement. Dr Richard O’Leary, chair of the Church of Ireland group Changing Attitude Ireland, said: “In the forthcoming referendum on marriage Christians will be campaigning on both sides.” He added: “Although Catholic bishops have expressed opposition, Christians can still use their freedom of conscience to vote yes to civil marriage equality, like they did 20 years ago in favour of the availability of civil divorce.” The latest opinion poll in the Irish Times found that 71% of the Republic’s electorate would vote yes and allow for legal gay marriages in the state. The hierarchy of the Catholic church last week came out against gay marriage in the Republic. A yes vote would mark another defeat for the temporal power of the Catholic church in a country it once dominated. On the same day as the gay marriage referendum, the Republic’s voters will also be asked to endorse a constitutional reform that will allow lowering the age an individual can stand for the Irish presidency from 35 to 21. A gay member of the main coalition partner, Fine Gael, said the referendum would be a landmark day for social equality in Ireland. Jerry Buttimer, who presents Cork South Central in the Irish parliament said: “As a gay man and member of Fine Gael, I am immensely proud that this referendum has been brought forward by this Fine Gael/ Labour Government. However the hard work is only starting now. “We must be fully committed to this campaign and leave no stone unturned in explaining the importance of a yes vote. I truly believe the referendum will be passed and that Ireland will be lauded across the world as a leader in social justice and equality.”

Long story short, I have a bipolar neighbor in my apt building who is driving me and the rest of the tenants up the wall. Over the past 3 years, the pattern seems to be that things are quiet for a while and then she goes through screaming and crying spells that are very loud and stressful to hear. Even the tenants in the apt building next to ours have complained and called the police. She told our landlord she is embarrassed and that she is bipolar. She wanted to write a letter to the tenants which she gave to him but at the last minute she told him not to distribute it. She seems either 'on' or 'off'. A few weeks will go by where it's very peaceful and then there are weeks where she is constantly crying, yelling loudly, slamming doors and causing a ruckus. Us tenants come out into the hallways during the really loud episodes that she has and we all stare at each other but we're too afraid to confront her to tell her to shut up. if it gets really bad someone calls the police. Long story short, There are 8 units in my building and I have lived in here for over 10 years. It was a great, peaceful environment. Then this bipolar tenant, a woman who looked to be in her late 20s, moved in a few years ago(fall 09) and it's been disruptive off and on ever since. The police have come out at least every other month, particularly when she gets in knockdown verbal screaming matches with her boyfriend. (He is not a tenant but stays over regularly). They have both been arrested or taken away for 5150/72 hour supervision in a psych ward a few times over the past few years. He scares us more than she does when he goes into rages. A few weeks ago he was screaming at her and tried to break down the front door to our bldg until the police arrested him. Now he's back and I heard them screaming this morning. Our landlord is tearing his hair out. He got an atty and tried to evict her but she fought back and said that under the Fair Housing Act you can't evict someone with a disability (her bipolar condition being a disability). We have had some tenants leave because of her. I don't want to move because the rent is really reasonable in a great neighborhood and it's close to my work. I looked for other options in this neighborhood but couldn't find anything affordable. (My building is cheaper because it's older and seen better days but the location is great). My landlord said if one of us tenants would testify in court against her that's our best chance to evict her. We are all too scared to do it. (Yea, I know) I wrote a letter to my landlord with extensive dates of incidences where the police had to come over but he says it's not enough. He has police records of their visits out here as well but says we need someone to testify to evict her. Again, no one wants to go to court as they are too scared in case we lose. So we are stuck with this woman who yells, slams doors, screams in our common hallway that we are 'bad people' for calling the police, etc. She is also paranoid and says we broke her mailbox (there's nothing wrong with it) and other random things. She has no concept of how her ongoing episodes are ruining the quality of life for people not only in this building but in the one next door as well. We are all waiting for the day when she or her boyfriend end up shooting or beating each other up, their arguments are escalating. I realize this sounds like some bad drama queen journaling but I'm sick of it. She just had another episode this afternoon and the police came out again to investigate. This time she was not taken away but was given another warning. I don't know if she voluntarily goes off her meds or if her meds aren't working but I'm just burnt out on being sucked into the yelling, screaming, etc. Sorry for the long novel. I'm just hoping someone will offer some insight or maybe just tell me to pull up my socks and move. But I don't want to be pushed out of a place I love because of this woman. Are there any attys out there who have insight on how to work around the Fair Housing Act?

Viewers are calling for British television host Coleen Nolan to be fired after she compared gay couples who want to buy wedding cakes to the radical Islamic group ISIS. The Mirror reported that Nolan made the remarks during a panel discussion on ITV’s Loose Women, a daytime talk show with a similar format to The View in the U.S. Host Janet Street-Porter said that she had sided with Christian bakers who had refused to bake a cake with a message in support of same-sex marriage because she did not consider them to be bigots. “I’ve has so many rows with my gay friends about this who say, ‘Can’t you see what they did wrong?'” she explained. “And yes, I can see what was wrong about it. But I also have tremendous sympathy for them.” According to Street-Porter, same-sex couples already couples already had equal rights under the law so “they can choose where to go get their cakes.” “If you went in somewhere and two days later they said we don’t want to make your cake because of our beliefs and all that, you would just never go back to that shop,” Nolan opined. “And you would probably say to all your gay friends, ‘Don’t go there.'” “But having said that, what if somebody walked in and said, ‘I want a cake and I want the whole Islamic state on it, and how I support it, and I how I support them killing our people,'” she added. “Because it’s a business, do they have to make it?” The Independent noted that officials at ITV have declined to respond to viewers’ calls for Nolan to be fired.

Maybe I'm naive. But I always thought of Brad Pitt as a wholesome, average guy - probably not the brightest, but genuinely interested in the world, nice, kind of a stoner type, from a solid family. His parents seem old-fashioned, Midwestern, All-American, what have you. What does Angelina Jolie see in him? And he in her? She seems very ... damaged. Beautiful, talented, but dangerous. You never hear of her having female friends, and she seems to live a nomadic life with that tribe of kids. Not to mention the strife-filled relationship with her dad, and the weird relationship with the brother she made out with at the Oscars, and the exhibitionistic romance with B. Bob Thornton. Not to sound like a school marm, but I cannot imagine Brad's parents love her. And I don't really know what they see in one another either. Wouldn't someone as frisky as Ang become bored with ho-hum yet hot Brad? Wouldn't his old-school morals be somewhat upset by her...weird ways? I think he and Jen Aniston were actually much more suited to one another -- kind of earthy average joes living large in Hollywood. He and Gwyneth made no sense, either, but she ended up breaking up with him due to her snobbery (he came from a different "class). Anyway, can someone explain the attraction? Do you think they'll last?

They've been letting her bark all night next door and she would pace outside by my bedroom window. I tried earphones and earplugs but it was a shrieking kind of sound, with howling. She was young, part retriever. I guess they were trying to get her to grow up. They're horrible people and I couldn't talk to them. No one else would do anything. People here aren't like that. Eventually someone just would have given her antifreeze of something. So I started tossing raw meatballs over the fence with a tiny amount of my Xanax and Diazepam in them, one each night around 10. It worked fine. But I guess there was a build up of something because Tuesday morning I heard screaming and they had found the dog dead with froth all over its face. The woman came to my door and asked if I had seen anything and then as much as asked if I did something. I said no of course not, I loved Shelly. (I would give her treats and even walked her when she was a puppy a few times before the people got weird) Now she's going all over accusing people. She says they're getting two pit bulls and if anything happens she's going to start civil war. Now I don't know what to do. Should I just go and tell her the truth? It was an accident. I could say I was trying to soothe the dog and it was a terrible mistake. If she gets pit bull they'll be barking all the time and I'll have to move, and I can't afford more rent. I'm afraid they'll hurt my cats, which Shelly never did. I have an understanding with my landlord and I'm worried. Can I be arrested if I confess? All I wanted was some sleep. I know how this sounds, but any ideas will be helpful. Has this ever happened to you?
Excerpts from "O.J. Simpson is Innocent And I Can Prove It" by private investigator William C. Dear: "Prior to the killings, O.J.'s son Jason was diagnosed with "intermittent rage disorder" (AKA Jekyll and Hyde syndrome) and was given the drug Depakote to control his rage and seizures." "A note titled 'Dear Jason' that described the writer as being three persons was identified by handwriting experts as being written by Jason Simpson; he also wrote about killing anyone who hurt his loved ones and how he felt like 'Jekyll and Hyde' (in diaries obtained by Dear)." "In January 1994, six months before the killings, Jason went to the emergency room because he heard voices of people who weren't there and said he felt as if he was "going to rage" because he ran out of Depakote. He stopped taking Depakote two months before the murders." "In his past, Jason had nearly killed a girlfriend (with a knife) and almost seriously injured another in fits of rage (whereas O.J. has been accused of domestic abuse, but he has never been arrested for assault and was not prone to use weapons to settle a dispute)." "The murders took place between 9:45 and 10:05 p.m. Jason was by himself after approximately 9:50 p.m. and "has no alibi that can be supported by anyone else as to where he was while the killings occurred." Did O.J. Simpson take the ultimate fall in order to protect his troubled son? Did O.J. risk his reputation, his fortune and his freedom in order to protect his child? "The O.J.

any lesbian rumors?
She was petite and pretty, exotic looking, was a cast member of a huge show, married a rock star, why didn't she have a bigger career? I thought "Angel Heart" was her ticket to feature film stardom but nothing happened. Her "Cosby" spinoff seemed to quickly grow into itself without her, and I don't remember hearing anything about her in the media. Did she just not want it? Or did she have a bad reputation? Or simply had no potential?

I recall in the 1990s there was a lot of noise about America's obesity problem. But now, I'm hearing that Americans have gotten fat [italic]since[/italic] 1990! So we're fatter than fat now. How is this possible? It's not just Americans anymore. Mexicans and the Brits are big piggies, too. The rest of the Developed World is also well on its way, though perhaps a bit behind America. That's American exceptionalism! I was traveling recently, though not [italic]in the Mediterranean area[/italic], and it is really noticeable now. It seems like the majority are all fatties. Or perhaps more accurately, the majority of public space is filled with fatties. It's also a National Security issue, if we can't produce enough scooters in wartime. Most importantly. Why is this happening? What's changed in recent years to make people so fat?

Ashers Baking Company accused of discrimination after refusing to make cake featuring gay pressure-group slogan A Northern Ireland bakery run by devout Christians could face legal action after it refused to make a gay-themed cake depicting the Sesame Street couple Bert and Ernie. Ashers Baking Company published a statement on its website defending its decision to refuse to bake the cake as the slogan above the puppets was in support of gay marriage. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK where gay marriage is still not legal. That ban is expected to face a challenge later this year, firstly in the high court in Belfast, with the possibility of the action going all the way to the European court of human rights. Northern Ireland's first openly gay mayor, Andrew Muir, has backed legal action against the bakery, saying businesses should not be able to pick and choose who they serve. In its statement, the firm's general manager, Daniel McArthur, said: "The directors and myself looked at it and considered it and thought that this order was at odds with our beliefs. It certainly was at odds with what the Bible teaches, and on the following Monday we rang the customer to let him know that we couldn't take his order." McArthur said the company had offered to fully refund the customer, who wanted to have the logo of the pressure group QueerSpace on the cake. The 24-year-old businessman, whose company was established in 1992, runs six shops in the region and employs 62 people, confirmed he had received a letter from the Equality commission for Northern Ireland. He said: "We thought that was the end of it, but approximately six weeks later we received a letter from the Equality commission. The commission's letter said that we had discriminated against the customer on the grounds of his sexual orientation." McArthur said he was very surprised by the watchdog's letter and had asked the Christian Institute, an evangelical pressure group, for advice. The institute supports the bakery's stance and is providing legal assistance. McArthur said: "I feel if we don't take a stand on this here case, how can we stand up against it, further down the line?" He added that it was not the first time his company had refused cake orders: "In the past, we've declined several orders which have contained pornographic images and offensive, foul language." Muir, the outgoing mayor of North Down and a gay member of the centrist Alliance party, said the Bert and Ernie cake was for an event he was hosting in the constituency in May. He said it was ordered to coincide with the International Day Against Homophobia on 17 May. "Businesses should not be able to pick and choose who they serve," he said, adding that he would be supportive of legal action against the bakery. "For Northern Ireland to prosper and overcome our divisions we need a new society where businesses are willing to cater for all, regardless of religious views, political opinion, disability, race, age, sexual orientation, marital status, gender and other backgrounds. "I was pleased that another bakery, in Bangor, was able to step in and produce this cake for the event I hosted as mayor of North Down. We were able to ensure that this event went ahead, despite the actions of Ashers Bakery, and enjoyed a great afternoon celebrating the vibrant diversity Northern Ireland enjoys." Gavin Boyd of the gay rights organisation the Rainbow Project, said the firm "cannot have their cake and eat it" in relation to equality legislation in Northern Ireland. "The law on this matter is clear. Companies may not pick and choose the laws that apply to them and they cannot pick the sexual orientation of their customers," Boyd said. The Equality commission for Northern Ireland said: "In this case the commission has granted assistance to the complainant, and has written to the company concerned on his behalf. The commission will consider any response before taking further action."

Hillary Clinton had sensitive but unclassified information in the private email account she used as secretary of state, and distributed internally several memos on the Benghazi attack from a friend whose closeness to Clinton has become controversial. Those are among the revelations from the first batch of Clinton’s emails from her private server made public, after being obtained by The New York Times Thursday morning. The State Department will soon start making batches of the emails public on a rolling basis, but it could take months for all of her emails to be released. Clinton turned over 55,000 pages of email from her private server, and said Tuesday that she wants them to be released as soon as possible. But State needs time to process them, leading a federal judge this week to say that the department should release them on a rolling basis beginning as soon as possible. State is supposed to produce a timetable for the release by next week. The department last year turned over roughly 850 pages of emails related to Libya to the House Select Committee on Benghazi, and the Times obtained a tranche of those. The 349 pages put online by the paper appear to contain no bombshells nor classified information. There is nothing in the emails to support some of the wilder claims Republicans have made about Clinton’s role in the attack, like that she issued a stand-down order to U.S. forces hoping to intervene in the attack. But they could raise new questions about her use of email and that of her longtime adviser, Sidney Blumenthal, whom Obama White House officials had barred from serving in the State Department. The emails also include “Sensitive but Unclassified” information, including one from a year and half before the Benghazi attack in which Ambassador Chris Stevens considered leaving the country due to deteriorating security. The envoy’s delegation is currently doing a phased checkout (paying the hotel bills, moving some comms to the boat, etc.),” read email that forwarded to Clinton by Huma Abedin, her longtime aide. “He will monitor the situation to see if it deteriorates further, but no decision has been made on departure. He will wait 2-3 more hours, then revisit the decision on departure.” Stevens was killed in the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 when attackers set fire to the compound. The emails also show that Clinton seemed to take advice on Libya from longtime friend and aide Sid Blumenthal, who sent Clinton emails that she forwarded to officials in the government via a top aide. Blumenthal is not a foreign policy expert, and was apparently engaged with business hoping to make money in Libya. During an appearance at a small business event in Iowa this week, Clinton defended taking Blumenthal’s advice. “I have many, many old friends,” she said. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. He sent me unsolicited emails, which I passed on in some instances, and that’s just part of the give-and-take,” she said. “When you’re in the public eye, when you’re in an official position, I think you do have to work to make sure you’re not caught in a bubble and you only hear from a certain small group of people.” The emails show Blumenthal sent Clinton numerous memos on Libya and on the Benghazi terror attack. He offered different explanations for the attack as time went on, first blaming demonstrators and then saying it was a premeditated attack by a local al Qaeda affiliate. That second explanation conflicted with the Obama administration’s understanding of the attack at the time, though they later revised their explanation. Blumenthal was recently subpoenaed by the House Benghazi committee, which sent U.S. Marshalls to his home. Clinton is expected to testify soon, though a date has not been decided. Abedin might also be asked to appear.

Many here seem to think he's gay, but his (apparent) relationship with Alexandra Daddario is very low-key and private, which makes me doubt that it's bearding (or it would be very subtle). Thoughts?

Ah, Republicans, the party committed to protecting traditional families... unless they think you'll write them a big check, in which case they'll speak out of both sides of their mouths. And get a load of the gay hotelier! "Senator Ted Cruz has positioned himself as a strong opponent of same-sex marriage, urging pastors nationwide to preach in support of marriage as an institution between a man and a woman, which he said was “ordained by God.” But on Monday night, at a reception for him at the Manhattan apartment of two prominent gay hoteliers, the Texas senator and Republican presidential hopeful struck quite a different tone. During the gathering, according to two people present, Mr. Cruz said he would not love his daughters any differently if one of them was gay. He did not mention his opposition to same-sex marriage, saying only that marriage is an issue that should be left to the states. The dinner and “fireside chat” for about a dozen people with Mr. Cruz and his wife, Heidi, was at the Central Park South penthouse of Mati Weiderpass and Ian Reisner, longtime business partners who were once a couple and who have been pioneers in the gay hospitality industry. “Ted Cruz said, ‘If one of my daughters was gay, I would love them just as much,’” recalled Mr. Reisner, a same-sex marriage proponent who described himself as simply an attendee at Mr. Weiderpass’s event.

Some initial thoughts: - Holy shit - they all look 20-25 years older than their listed ages. Without exaggeration. - I'm assuming this was a brawl between a white gang and a Hispanic gang, judging from the mix of mugshots. - Brian Brincks is handsome - though he looks 42, not 22 (per above). - Juan Garcia - be my daddy. - James Devall, Jim Harris, and Dusty Oehlert look like aliens with their massive craniums - why do so many of these guys have alien heads? What else?

The Associated Press, May 14, 2015 2:20 PM EDT NEW YORK (AP) -- ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos has apologized for not notifying his employer and viewers about two contributions totaling $50,000 that he made to the Clinton Foundation. The network news division said Thursday that "we stand behind him." The donations, made in two installments in 2013 and 2014 and first reported in Politico, were made because of Stephanopoulos' interest in the foundation's work on global AIDS prevention and deforestation, he said. Stephanopoulos, co-host of "Good Morning America" and host of the Sunday morning public affairs program "This Week," has reported on Peter Schweizer's book, "Clinton Cash," which traces the public involvement of organizations that have donated to the foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton, whose wife Hillary is the former secretary of state running for the 2016 presidential nomination. Stephanopoulos interviewed Schweizer on "This Week." The news anchor said that he believed his contributions were a matter of public record. "However, in hindsight, I should have taken the extra step of personally disclosing my donations to my employer and to the viewers on the air during the recent news stories about the foundation," he said. "I apologize." ABC News, in a statement, agreed that Stephanopoulos was wrong not to notify his bosses and viewers but called it an honest mistake. Stephanopoulos worked on Bill Clinton's first presidential campaign and in the White House during the early years of Clinton's administration. He joined ABC News in 1997 and besides his regular work on the two programs, he is ABC News' chief anchor during major breaking news stories.

I know the Brits like their sex a bit kinky given that they're all so uptight, but they really need to stop diddling their kids! "Police reveal complaints against 135 figures from the world of TV, film or radio, 76 politicians, 43 from the music industry and seven from sport. Some 261 celebrities and politicians, including sports, TV and music stars, are being investigated for alleged child sex abuse, police have revealed. They are among more than 1,400 men suspected by police of being sex predators as the Home Secretary warned it is only the “tip of the iceberg”. The rogues gallery includes 135 TV, film and radio stars, 43 musicians and seven sports figures as well as 76 politicians, the officer in charge of the issue has disclosed. Hundreds of schools, religious institutions, children's homes and sports clubs are also implicated. Chief Constable Simon Bailey said reports of child sex abuse were increasing on a daily basis and expected police to receive some 116,000 allegations before the end of this year. The surge is partly a result of the Jimmy Savile scandal in 2012 and Mr Bailey warned victims will run “in to the thousands”. He said superfast internet connections, such as 4G, are making it easier for perverts to groom children online and feared hundreds of thousands of youngsters have already been targeted. The figures, from the new police coordinating hub Operation Hydrant, reveal for the first time the massive scale of inquiries in to historic and current sex abuse cases. Speaking separately, Theresa May, the Home Secretary, told rank and file officers that the picture was the “tip of the iceberg”. Mr Bailey, the head of Norfolk Police and lead on child sex abuse for the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC), said the scale of child abuse was “stark". "The referrals are increasing on an almost daily basis so the numbers I refer to today are a snap shot in time,” he said. He said the figures suggested more sex abuse was being perpetrated. Officers have identified 357 different institutions linked to the alleged abuse, including 154 schools, 75 children's homes, 40 religious institutions and nine prisons. Forces have had to shift resources from other departments to focus on historic sex crimes. Several celebrities have been convicted for historic sex abuse, including children's entertainer Rolf Harris, 85, and PR guru Max Clifford, 72. But public confidence in the Crown Prosecution Service's (CPS) willingness to prosecute VIPs was shaken when it announced that it would not prosecute Labour peer Lord Greville Janner, 86, despite having enough evidence, because he has dementia. Mr Bailey also warned the arrival of superfast internet is likely to see "more and more" abuse of youngsters, including the live-streaming of abuse on the internet.He said predators have attempted to groom hundreds of thousands of children in Britain through internet sites and chat rooms. "We assess there might be 50,000 people who are viewing indecent images of children online,” he said. Speaking at the Police Federation annual conference in Bournemouth, Mrs May said: “We will need to face up to the changing nature of crime and the impact on police forces, including the much greater reporting of previously ignored or under-reported crimes such as child sexual abuse. "I have said before that what we are seeing is only the tip of the iceberg. "So let me be clear, I am committed to ensuring the police have the resources they need to investigate these appalling crimes and bring perpetrators to justice." But Jon Brown, the lead on tackling sexual abuse at the NSPCC charity said: "There is not enough provision, and as far as adult survivors of abuse are concerned it is extremely patchy.”
First, mice. Only they believe we're roommates instead of their being vermin and me the exterminator. Second, flies. Of course. When you kill mice and rats you get flies, the worst kind. Flies that have just come from dead mice and now want to land on your nice butter. Thankfully, my flies are suicidal. They probably feel like shit after chomping down on poisoned mice. My mice don't poop in the house. They pee, but only in the sinks. The don't eat anything of mine. And I never, ever see them. What they do do a lot is screw. Okay okay I'll get a blog.

Believe it or not, people with this affliction, at their very core, are the inverse of the narcissist. People with BPD start out 'too sensitive', too empathetic. People with borderline personality disorder empathize to the point of pain. When the highly sensitive person grows up in a very non-validating and/or abusive environment, with a history of trauma, BPD can manifest. In order for borderline personality to develop, an invalidating environment with and a highly sensitive person MUST BE present. What is going on in a Borderline Personality Disorder sufferer's mind and how they are acting can be two entirely different things. To the sufferer, BPD is about deep feelings, feelings often too difficult to express, feelings that are something along the lines of this : If others really get to know me, they will find me rejectable and will not be able to love me; and they will leave me; I need to have complete control of my feelings otherwise things go completely wrong; I have to adapt my needs to other people's wishes, otherwise they will leave me or attack me; I am an evil person and I need to be punished for it; Other people are evil and abuse you; If someone fails to keep a promise, that person can no longer be trusted; If I trust someone, I run a great risk of getting hurt or disappointed; If you comply with someone's request, you run the risk of losing yourself; If you refuse someone's request, you run the risk of losing that person; I will always be alone; I can't manage by myself, I need someone I can fall back on; There is no one who really cares about me, who will be available to help me, and whom I can fall back on; I don't really know what I want; I will never get what I want; I'm powerless and vulnerable and I can't protect myself;. I have no control of myself; I can't discipline myself; My feelings and opinions are unfounded; Other people are not willing or helpful. To the family members, BPD behavior is often very frustrating can feel unfair and punitive - something like this: You have been viewed as overly good and then overly bad; You have been the focus of unprovoked anger or hurtful actions, alternating with periods when the family member acts perfectly normal and very loving; Things that you have said or done have been twisted and used against you; You are accused of things you never did or said? You often find yourself defending and justifying your intentions; You find yourself concealing what you think or feel because you are not heard; You feel manipulated, controlled, and sometimes lied to.
Siân Phillips turned 82 last week! Here's a recent interview: ----- Siân Phillips is indefatigable. Shortly to turn 82, she is rarely off the stage. Most of last year Phillips was giving her Lady Bracknell in two separate productions of The Importance of Being Earnest, first in Washington DC, then in the UK. Before that there was Alan Bennett’s People, Cabaret, Abi Morgan’s Lovesong (requiring strenuous dance), and Calendar Girls. No wonder, when Bristol Old Vic set Romeo and Juliet in an old people’s home, Phillips played one of the star-crossed lovers. Her latest lead is in Playing for Time at Sheffield Theatres, an Arthur Miller rarity in which she is onstage for more or less the whole play. Where does this undimmed zest come from? “Oh please!” she says. “I’m not aware that I have a lot of energy. Working has never tired me out. If you say to me, ‘Just pop into that cocktail party and have a word with so and so,’ I am a stretcher case at the end of half an hour. I don’t have a cast-iron energy. I just have it for work. I just like acting.” We meet during a break in rehearsals. She doesn’t dress like an octogenarian, wears fearsomely on-trend round-rimmed specs and talks animatedly in a rich Welsh mezzo (the accent has returned in recent decades). The agelessness is internal, too. Send Phillips a birthday card and it’ll fetch up in the bin, unopened. “Sometimes the day comes and goes and I don’t notice that it’s been.” [Rest of article]:
I love this show. The season finale just aired and it brought the usual drama and hysterics. Trina debuted her stage act for the entire family and was a success, amidst her own personal marriage drama. Tamar has decided that she wants kids (maybe), but wants to have "popsicle" babies (have the eggs frozen and have a surrogate carry them at a later date). Towanda offered to carry the child for her, but no more than one.
"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.
We'd like to hear all about it.
Im considering a Nexus. I want something to watch porn on, and web surf to nefarious sites such as this. But I also need something I can use for work occasionally.

Oh yes, I and must be able to tether my phone via USB. Any recommendations?
Another cast, another season. Cast revealed (at link).
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) on Tuesday slammed the popular HBO series "Game of Thrones" for airing a "gratuitous" rape scene in Sunday night's episode. McCaskill tweeted that the episode's final scene, in which the young Sansa Stark is raped by her new husband on her wedding night while a former childhood friend is forced to watch, was so "disgusting and unacceptable" that she would no longer watch the show: Claire McCaskill @clairecmc Ok, I'm done Game of Thrones.Water Garden, stupid.Gratuitous rape scene disgusting and unacceptable.It was a rocky ride that just ended. The senator, who is known for her efforts to combat sexual assault in the military, became perhaps the highest-profile "Game of Thrones" fan to voice a complaint that's become increasingly common among viewers disenchanted with the show's weekly parade of sexual violence. Male characters have forced themselves on their female counterparts since the show's first season, and one incestuous rape scene that aired in the spring of 2014 sparked particularly vehement critical backlash. There's something to the criticism that the rape scenes on "Game of Thrones" are "gratuitous," as both the scene McCaskill objected to and the incest scene mentioned above were departures from the books on which the show is based. George R.R. Martin, the author of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, addressed fans' outrage Monday on his blog without taking on the rape scene itself. "Prose and television have different strengths, different weaknesses, different requirements. David and Dan and Bryan and HBO are trying to make the best television series that they can," he wrote. "And over here I am trying to write the best novels that I can. And yes, more and more, they differ. Two roads diverging in the dark of the woods, I suppose... but all of us are still intending that at the end we will arrive at the same place."
When will it end? "Never!" say the precious petals that are SJWS!!! What will be the next target?

Today is St. Patrick's Day and I'm hungover. The reason I'm hungover today, as opposed to tomorrow, is that over the years I've learned that being hungover on March 18 comes with a particular type of regret. A regret dipped in green and stinking of shit, vomit-sprayed and cackling various Pogues songs at the end of my bed. But today my hangover is run-of-the-mill—I've learned over the years to drink like a professional on the 16th and avoid today's whole pissing-yourself madness. That I'm hungover, anyway, on what's still just a Wednesday (when I knew I'd have to be up at 6 AM to write this) tells you I'm not opposed to inappropriate drinking. I, like anyone, enjoy the occasional pint of vodka—yet I resent the fact that, just because I'm Irish, I'm expected to take part in what's essentially a vomiting contest between idiots too thick to tell the difference between real culture and fake. Even in Ireland, St. Patrick's Day is fake culture. Though the idea of celebrating our country is a great one, distilling our myriad contributions to the world to a pint of Guinness and parades of people in stupid costumes not only undermines the concept of paying tribute, but also points to a basic misunderstanding of what's good—for starters, parades are shit. I say this as an Irish person, sitting here in Ireland: My own country doesn't know how to pay tribute to itself. With a tremendous tradition in resisting oppression, and a disproportionate contribution to great art, the best we can come up with is the same Guinness-and-parade bullshit you have. It's a shame, America, that of all you could've inherited from us, you choose our excessive drinking and this kitsch, camp celebration of nothing. I should make clear that, unlike me, most Irish people like St. Patrick's Day. A day off work and an excuse to drink—what's not to like? But we're all universally baffled as to why you'd celebrate this, our national holiday, with such vigor. Though we respect your many Irish-American communities, and applaud their contribution to the American way of life, we sometimes regard them as more outwardly Irish than ourselves and therefore a bit cringeworthy. Admittedly, our knowledge of them comes mainly from films like The Fighter and The Town, so maybe we've the wrong impression. But it's not just the Irish who are fascinated when you Americans over-identify with your ancestral roots. When you call yourself Italian or German it baffles Italians and Germans too. Why can't you just identify as American? For a country that waves a lot of flags and considers anything but blind patriotism in politicians an act of treason, the contradiction at the heart of your identity frustrates us. We're aware of your flaws—your wars and shitty sitcoms—so when you don't identify as American, it seems like you're trying to shirk responsibility for what your country has inflicted on ours and, in effect, have us shoulder the blame. But your shittiness isn't unique. God knows every country has its own problems. In fact, being proud of America as an American is, theoretically, admirable—as is the concept behind your society. A place where Italian people can mix with Irish, Polish with Russian, is the dream of every openminded person. But aren't these communities generally isolated from each other and obsessed with ways of "the old country"? It strikes me that this has less to do with keeping traditions alive and paying tribute and more with being scared. The irony is that, in Ireland and the UK, pretty much every kid wants to be American at some point. Your culture looms large over ours—Cadillacs and open roads, Clint Eastwood and Jimi Hendrix, the Empire State and Alexi Lalas. Americanism is the height of cool, and that you wouldn't want to identify with it is only as strange as why you'd want to identify with us. But it goes deeper than that, doesn't it? Though there are certainly millions across America right now cranking U2 and thinking of long-lost relatives swimming in Galway bays, there are many more with no relation to Ireland whatsoever jumping on this St. Patrick's Day bandwagon just because it's an excuse to get drunk. Which is fine—getting drunk is great—but appropriating a culture in such a cartoonish, willingly blind way points to something more troubling than that hangover you'll have in the morning. Though I may be wrong, it seems like there are so many different sections of America that a communal whole is no closer to existing than it ever was, and until you realize that boundaries not just between races but different cultures need to be broken down more, you'll always have an excuse not only to hate other countries but each other. Speaking specifically as an Irish person, there are many reasons why you mightn't want to appropriate our culture. Historically, our country is a shambles. Repressed by the British and Catholic Church for centuries, we drink for a reason much more tragic than partying—we drink to cope, and learned how to do this (as well as empower ourselves through drunken feats of masculinity) at a time when we were too poor to eat, too controlled to open up, and too indentured to own land. That we still do it on such a large scale is more a crime than celebration, and at least here, St. Patrick's Day is the public holiday equivalent of a crying clown. When you come here on holiday, America, and drink Guinness in tourist pubs, you must surely know that what you're seeing has been created for the purposes of taking your money. The real Ireland exists in places you often don't go—Dublin's north inner-city, the suburbs, regional towns full of hardworking people who want what you want: kids, houses, happiness. These are the places you'll find people you can bond with, not the cartoonish, exotic beings which haunt tourist spots like Temple Bar. Frankly, an Ireland removed from the quiet everydayness which spawned our true wonders—Samuel Beckett, James Joyce, Roy Keane—isn't one worth knowing. At the same time, we go to Disneyland and Times Square. Most of us are only just getting into the NFL, and hardly any of us have read Moby Dick. So our understanding of your culture is probably just as bad . Maybe all we want when we visit a place or celebrate a culture is exactly what we expect—our own version of it. Maybe realness doesn't interest us because everything comes with downsides, things determined to kill our buzz.

I avoid my neighbor in my gated condo complex, a very angry and bitter man. Originally from NY, his Chinese wife had a gambling problem and lost their restaurant. He claims that he can't talk about his former job which I think was as a government employee in Taiwan, possibly in computers or engineering. He was friendly with my previous roomie, a Chinese lady who left Vegas due to her own issues with gambling. She needed him for rides, but non-stop complained about his cheapness, such as never leaving a tip. On the $4 movie discount day, he'd brag that he snuck in candy bars so that he could see 4 complete movies without getting hungry. Whenever he used to come to the door to visit her, I'd hide, especially after hearing him brag about committing petty crimes in NY as a teenager. Since reading on DL, something bothers me. This childless man regularly chaperones Boy Scouts on extended camping trips. My former roomie used to tell me that this proved that he really was a good and honorable man. Am I being paranoid?
Not looking exactly as pictured is one thing, but what about guys who turned psycho? Anything along those lines, or even worse.

Met this great guy over the weekend and it turns out he's obsessed with Bob Dylan. I've never really listened to his music, and frankly, what I have heard kinda sucks. But I want to impress this guy, so what makes his stuff any good? Some early replies: R 461 - the lyrics. He conveys emotion and experience efficiently and unpretentiously in the song lyrics I've read. The problem is you can't really hear what he's saying. R462 - And the humour. His voice is like listening to sandpaper haha. Some of his poetry is really great. He's a very gifted poet, and then as a singer... Well, it works I guess.

I doubt most of you could hammer a nail or mow the lawn and I disagree with leftist politics, but when it comes to art you people are pretty smart. I think homosexuality clearly infuses creative sensibilities and I wonder what the world would be like if AIDS never happened in NYC and SF.
Hello dears! After a long dry spell I'm finally getting boned on Friday. Hurrah! I'm even taking the day off work for the occasion. Now, my question for you know-it-alls is what do you think of salt water flushes as a preparation for anal sex? I've done them before, for health reasons, and they're pretty effective and thorough. Two tsps of non-iodized sea salt in one litre of warm water. Drink first thing in the morning. Wait. Expel the entire contents of your bowels and colon. It feels great. So clean. In the olden days I would simply give myself an enema before bottoming. But that was always a crap shoot (pun intended) and not always foolproof. I heard porn bottoms do salt water flushes if they don't want to deal with enemas.
There’s a grocery chain that sells sub sandwiches. Similar to the Subway setup, where you tell them what you want on it out of a bunch of choices. I love the things. They’ve got Boar’s Head meat and are very good. I’ve been getting one usually once or twice a week for maybe the last year. There is a glass cover on top of, in front of, and on the sides of the area where the store employees get the meat and vegetables to put on the subs. There are gaps between the front glass and the top glass, and between the side glass panels and the top and front panels. I went in yesterday to get a sub. There was a man in line in front of me. He lunged forward, sneezed like 10 times. I saw some of the nasal spray make it between the gaps into the food area. I just couldn’t order anything, doubt I can ever go back there again. I know it’s ridiculous, but I just cannot picture myself eating anything out of there again, or anywhere with gaps in the food cover. I’ve made fun of people for being germaphobes, but think I’ve joined the crowd now.
The guy's not a monk. He's slept/dated some of you . He's been around NYC o long time, he's cute, he's an executive/TV personalty. He's slobbered over a few of you, I bet.

Senator Lindsey Graham, the Republican foreign policy hawk, has confirmed that he will run for US president in 2016. The senator from South Carolina told CBS This Morning that he would make an official announcement on 1 June in his home town of Central. But when asked why he was considering it, he said "I'm running" because "the world is falling apart" and he would make the best commander-in-chief. He becomes the seventh leading Republican to join a crowded field. Mr Graham has been a fierce critic of President Barack Obama's foreign policy, particularly in the Middle East. He wants US ground troops to be sent into Iraq and Syria to combat Islamic State, to prevent terror attacks in the US. line Analysis - Anthony Zurcher, BBC News, Washington Lindsey Graham tried to be coy about whether he was going to run for president, but his decision is clear - he's in. That makes four members of the US Senate - 9% of all Republican senators in office in 2014 - now running. A foreign policy hawk in the mould of Senator John McCain of Arizona, he is likely to make national security the central theme of his campaign. If polls are to be trusted, that may play well with Republican audiences. He is still a long-shot, however, given that his past efforts at co-operation with Democrats and support of sweeping immigration reform put him out of step with many Republican primary voters. The mere fact that he's in a position to run for president now, however - given that just a few years ago he was seen as a prime target for a grassroots Tea Party primary challenger - is an impressive political achievement. line When asked by CBS whether he thought the Republican field was weak, he revealed his intention to run himself. "I'm running because of what you see on television, I'm running because I think the world is falling apart, I've been more right than wrong on foreign policy," he said. "It's not the fault of others, or their lack of this or that that makes me want to run, it's my ability in my own mind to be a good commander-in-chief and to make Washington work."
If you turned on CBS last night, you might have thought you had gone through a time warp: The network aired two classic episodes of I Love Lucy that had been meticulously colorized. The I Love Lucy Superstar Special presented the 1955 episode “L.A. At Last!” and the 1957 episode “Lucy and Superman,” like viewers have never seen them before. Golden Age screen idol William Holden guest starred in the first episode, which chronicles Lucy and Ricky’s arrival in Hollywood. Last night’s airing featured footage that hasn’t been seen since the episode’s debut. The second episode, “Lucy and Superman,” sees Lucy try to get TV’s Superman, George Reeves, to come to Little Ricky’s birthday party—but winds up donning the famous super-suit herself.
Shit this show didn't age well. I was the same age as Angela when the show was on but I was into it. But now its so... Poor rich white-girl, sort of a precursor to Girls. Fuck me.

Threeways often crash and burn (usually two of the three are more interested in each other, and the third watches and grumbles from the side). But every once in a while, they work great. Stories about good/great/mindblowing threesomes you've had?
Do you think they would work well together in a sitcom?
69 years young today. At least some parts of her are.
CLEVELAND, Ohio — One of the three women who survived a decade held captive inside the Cleveland home of Ariel Castro debuted her new song on Tuesday. Michelle Knight’s song is called “Survivor.” It is now available on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon. Knight said she’s always had a song in her heart, and earlier this year, she met a producer who decided to help her make her song a reality. Producer Aaron “D-Boyy” Dissell took Michelle’s words and turned them into the song, which talks not only about her suffering but also about her triumphs. Michelle said she hoped that “Survivor” will be an inspiration; a message of hope. Just singing the song brings out the emotional turmoil she’s had to endure.
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?
Today I was ridig my train to work, and checking one of the mobile apps gay men check each other out with. I spotted a profile close by with a profile photo of someone unclothed kissing a well known porn star, I commented: "Wow, nice that you can make out with Brad kalvo!" His response was: "Thanks " I said, "congrats" He responded, "why - U should be congratulating him " I said, " I will, when I encounter him on this site" He replied, " he won't be, But have a good one worshipping people u would never get to sleep with ". I responded, " you too" His final reply was, " I been with them, So I don't need to fantasize. " I found that particularly cunty of him, I was trying originally to compliment him. Oh, well, bitches are birches. What happened to you today that was cuntastic?

I cannot stand sitting aside any longer, during these times of tremendous moment for our community. And by that I mean us Diva-Americans. My lipo-plastique accident that caused my slim passably-thin-for-the-60s plush pursers to swell up until I looked like a baboon ass bending over while the thing sat on my face has been fixulated and I am back to my timeless presentation of too-cool radiance. Just let me tell you, though, in case you're tempted. The Fountain of Youth is not something attached to what looks like a firehose with a Courtney-Love-sticker on the end. But back to the issues. I am afraid it is time to take a leadership role with the community. Ferguson, St. Louis, Baltimore - I am deeply offended by what it tells me about our people. Mainly, YOU ARE LOOTING WEAVE SHACKS AND CVS? Shit. I mean, if you want to make a statement you head to the Galleria or Towson Town Center. They'll get your goddamned outrage there. Throwing a brick through a pawn shop to grab an old lady's zirconia is NOT how it's done. Look at Oprah. When she was in Paris setting up to hit Hermes, she was doing the freedom run right. Until they caught her and she made up that "You closed because I am not French and the color of ivory" bullshit. You KNOW how they all hushed that shit up fast. SO because of my upset and my not being able to stand Hillary's pear-cut pant suits any more, or that Charlie-Brown-in-drag head-and-hair look of hers, I am going to be making a very important announcement soon. And just for a hint, if it all works out I shall NOT be inviting Re to do the Star Spangled Banner come January 2017. But otherwise I am happy to announce that Damont and CIndi have have a couple of babies. Darling. I told him I could get him 50k on the Arab market for the spare, but they say they're keeping both. MORE mouths for me to watch going hungry while I collect mine off the top. Such responsibility, to be a mogul diva with ambitionations. Bobbi Kristina? Let's just say that last I heard Cissy had put some potting soil up her ear holes and started some cucumber plants. I think she is slipping - Cissy I mean, because BK has done slipped as far as life's banana can fucking land her - because she keeps muttering, "Now she's my little vegetable." Cissy always made the best crystal pickles. Yes, even from space I could see that a one-armed cripple, a Mormon geek-cousin-of-the-whore-and-closet-case and two white men who can't walk straight would last longer than Patti on that dance thing show. Fuck, she looked like a villain out of H.R. Pufnstuf - that gash-mouth, fat-hip, no-ass shaking around was just too. Too fucking too. And I sold three more copies of my last album. Well, three sets were downloaded. They told me a iTunes the people had made a mistake but I'm counting them, damn it. So I am setting up exploratory committees and of course will be seeking donations from my many fans and supporters. I've got enough pictures from the old days that I could just about knock half the runnners out of the box. But for the record I have nothing on Bill. You think I can't smell herpes when it waggles its ugly fat head at me, all drooly like? I just know Barbra had a lot of explaining to do when she passed it on to that TV man she married.
We’ve been telling you for years that this young actor was only playing straight because his PR team convinced him that it would give him a wider audience and a better choice of roles. It worked in the beginning because it helped him succeed on a famous TV show. However, the show is over, he is tired of faking it, and he now wants to come out! It’s not like there is going to be some big press conference next week. This is a cautious and gradual process and he is testing out things one at a time to see the reaction they get. He is playing a gay-friendly role. He is giving interviews to gay-friendly media (that curiously do not mention his sexuality). However, the biggest step is yet to come: He wants to break up with his beard. It’s not that he hates her. they are friends. However, he has gotten to the point where he is angry and annoyed about the charade. His PR team is definitely NOT happy about this, and they are pushing back. “They helped to craft his heartthrob straight image with this girlfriend and they don’t want him to just throw all their hard work away. [The actor and the publicists] are debating back and forth. Last I heard [the publicists] were suggesting to him that maybe he could say that he’s bi as a transitional step and then just date men. While that sounds like a good compromise, he’s really just sick of lying.” Let's see: young, heartthrob, famous former tv show, beard. (Link is to "Blind Gossip" nothing more there)
I just LOVED seeing Peter Dinklage tied up with a ball gag.
What the FUCK? Kandi is talented (beautiful voice) sweet, kind, lovely ect... But all of these spinoffs really surprise me. As wonderful as she is, she is an absolute BORE to watch. And don't get me started on her enabling the behavior of her vile mother. She must have a huge Q rating and bring in serious ratings/positive focus group tests or something. My god she is like watching paint dry.
If I'm correct, "Oil" was the original title for the show "Dynasty". I know that was the title of the pilot. I'm wondering how similar "Oil" is going to be to Season One of "Dynasty"? Instead of Colorado, it's set in North Dakota. I'm assuming that Don Johnson plays the Blake Carrington type patriarch and that Chace Crawford plays the middle class Matthew Blaisdel who is trying to strike it rich with his own oil well? Amber Valetta plays Don Johnson's wife. I wonder if she plays the new wife, or if they've been married for some time? I wonder if she's the mother of his son and daughter (played by Scott Michael Foster and Caitlin Carter respectively)? I wonder if Chace Crawford will have an affair with Amber Valetta? I wonder if Chace Crawford's wife will have an affair with Scott Michael Foster? I'm wondering if this show can be the show that Season 1 of "Dynasty" was aiming to be, showing the middle class versus the upper class, before the Blaisels were all written out of the show?
Thanks to the Daily Mail for showing us excellent pics of celebs at their worst (see Jonathan Rhys Meyers thread from this weekend). Here, McBongo is at an charity event, the Amazing Race, he attends annually for DL fave Drew Brees' "Dream" Foundation. McBongo looks almost as dirty as James Franco and as sick as he did in Dallas Buyers' Club. His pubic-like facial hair is disgusting. Brees looks much better than McBongo despite Brees' hideous facial mole.
Let's see, Colbert interviewed him for "Into the Woods," let him host the show, sang Christmas carols with him. Why does America get all the British trash? The Brits hate Corden with a passion, the same way they hate Piers Morgan. I've asked this ten billions times: HOW DID JAMES CORDEN GET THE LATE SHOW GIG????!!!

I'm reading an interesting new book about the making of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, written by the record producer. Buckingham is portrayed as very talented but volatile and abusive to his girlfriends. It's gratifying that in the end, Stevie went on to mega-stardom, leaving him in her dust. (BTW, Stevie also twirls in the recording studio.)

"Kris Jenner Says She Feels Like She's Mourning Bruce Jenner" While part one of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce" focused mainly on Bruce Jenner discussing his transition with his daughters and stepdaughters, the second-half and conclusion of the special featured the former Olympian having a heart-to-heart with his now third ex-wife, Kris Jenner. Bruce and Kris married in 1991, after meeting on a blind date, and were husband and wife for 22 years before they announced their separation in 2013. In a particularly heartbreaking and emotional scene, Bruce visited Kris at her home to talk to her about his transition, but the two ended up rehashing details of their failed marriage. Clearly a lot of love remains between the two, but there is also a lot of anger. "I feel like I'm just trying to be honest with everybody and it seems like I've talked more to the kids and you've kind of been on the outside," Bruce told Kris. "And I hear all these rumors from the kids, 'Oh, mom is upset.'... And I don't want that to happen. So I thought I would come over. And sit down and talk." "First of all, you’re an amazing woman. We have had so many great moments together. Twenty-three going on 25 years of great moments together. They still live inside me. They’re still part of me. I don't want to let that go ... I’m just trying to deal with myself and what’s best for myself," Bruce explained to Kris, reading from a piece of paper. "In so many ways, I’ve lived my entire life running away from me and who I am. We raised amazing children and those memories will live inside me forever. And I will continue to have more of those wonderful memories. And I just want to get through this and do the best damn job of not hurting anybody, and that includes you. And I would hope that you would be on board." Kris was visibly upset to hear this -- as she teared up and mascara ran down her face. "I think I’m just so confused right now ... I think you shut me out a long time ago. You were angry, made me angry,” she said. "You treated me badly those last years of our marriage," Bruce responded. "You were just very, very angry where we just had to separate. So now it makes sense to me. The truth in your head was different from the truth that came out of your mouth," she replied. “I don’t want to hurt you. God this isn’t easy," he told her. Kris then admitted that she always knew he wanted "to dress differently, and dress as a female," but she didn't know he was transgender, that he identified as a woman or that he decided to start taking hormones. "I wasn’t taking them while we were together. That was all done after we separated," Bruce said, adding that he took hormones in the 1980s way before the two had met. “That’s part of the problem. You never explained. And every time I said to you, 'Why are you such an angry person?' You said I just wouldn't understand and you couldn’t talk to me about it. That was your answer every time," Kris told her ex. She continued, "Just so you're aware, ten years prior, you did the exact same thing ... I talked to you about it and I said I don’t know what is wrong with you ... I said I can’t handle this. You said you’re right, I’m sorry. You never said one time it was because of any issues you had. I just thought you were going through something ... And I turned into the Wicked Witch of the West because of the way you were behaving. I couldn't take it anymore. I couldn’t work 18 hours a day and then have no love at home ... because you were so far gone at that point you just needed to go do your thing." “I’ve always had these issues, honey, and I’ve never dealt with them," Bruce, who seems to think that their relationship troubles aren't just based on his gender issues alone, while Kris clearly disagrees, replied.

I'm an immigrant who is nonwhite and I remember growing up that whites were considered seriously mentally deficient; they were usually the slackers or the clowns. The ones who could holler the loudest but did shit in school. After graduation, virtually all white students in my class fulfilled the prophesy. Every one of them became somewhat of a loser (being a teacher, not graduating) and only one went on to become an m.d. so ya obviously the stereotype isn't true considring the world's riches countries are white. Are whites underachievers because they are surrounded by persons of color who respect them for their skin color and not their accomplishments? That's how I interpret it.

I'm hoping Teri Garr could somehow make an appearance. (I read where she wasn't even mentioned in that retrospective clip special they showed a few days before) Teri helped to define the Late Night era prior to CBS. Bill Murray, Howard Stern have also been mentioned, and they make sense (Murray did the first ever late night NBC show) But for the most part, it seems like the usual A list asskissng sendoff. When did Letterman become so Hollywood?
Some people say 12 or 13. For me, it was about age 9. (I know..that probably explains a lot about me.) I found it felt really good to lay face down with a pillow at my crotch.

Sir, – As the more than proud father of one shining person who happens to be a member of the LGBT community, I will be voting Yes in the coming referendum. In that sense it is a personal matter. I have read quite a bit in the papers about our new more tolerant society, and that may be so, and of course it is a solid point of view from which to vote Yes, but I don’t see it as a matter of tolerance, so much as apology. Apology for all the hatred, violence, suspicion, patronisation, ignorance, murder, maiming, hunting, intimidation, terrorising, shaming, diminishment, discrimination, destruction, and yes, intolerance, visited upon a section of humanity for God knows how many hundreds of years, if not millennia. My child will be just shy of 18 when the votes are cast, and therefore cannot vote himself. By voting Yes I will be engaging in the simple task of honouring the majesty, radiance and promise of his human soul. – Yours, etc, SEBASTIAN BARRY It made me tear up!

I mean seriously. I just watched it and for the first half of the film, nothing happens. Then the climax comes with Dr. Mann murdering the protagonist. It was okay at that point. But the entire movie is honestly a waste of time. It's just so boring and they insert science in it to make it look like an intellectual film which it is not.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Model Sonni Pacheco has filed for divorce from actor husband Jeremy Renner after 10 months of marriage, according to court documents filed in Los Angeles on Dec. 5. The petition cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the separation. Pacheco, in the petition, also seeks return of her stolen passport, birth certificate, and Social Security card as well as invalidation of their prenuptial agreement based on fraud. Pacheco and Renner have one child, Ava Berlin Renner, who is 20 months old. The two wed in secret on Jan. 13, 2014, and only confirmed their union to the press in September. Renner has 30 days to file a response to the summons and petition.
The online retailer is entering the competitive e-book subscription game The online retail giant Amazon announced Friday it’s launching an e-book subscription service called “Kindle Unlimited.” Kindle Unlimited lets Amazon customers pay $9.99 every month for unlimited access to 600,000 titles plus more than 2,000 audiobooks accessible on any Kindle or Kindle app on any mobile device, according to the company. Amazon introduced the service in this video, which is unavailable for embedding in this post. With the announcement, Amazon enters a field populated by other similar services, chiefly Scribd, Oyster and Entitle. Titles available through the service include books like The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the the Harry Potter series. The more than 2,000 audiobooks available through the service are linked up with Amazon’s Whispersync program, allowing the reader to switch between reading and listening to the narrated text. Depending on the details of how Kindle Unlimited was set up, the program may further complicated Amazon’s relationship with book publishers. Several of those publishers have been locked in a years-long tug-of-war with Amazon over the company’s pricing of e-books, which publishers argue has been too low. In a somewhat separate but related issue, Amazon is currently embroiled in a dispute with one publisher in particular, Hachette, most likely over the pricing of Hachette’s physical and digital books.
There is evidence at least 20 prominent figures - including former MPs and government ministers - abused children for "decades", a former child protection manager has claimed. Peter McKelvie, whose allegations led initially to a 2012 police inquiry, said a "powerful elite" of paedophiles carried out "the worst form" of abuse. The government has already announced two reviews into claims of abuse. The Home Office's top civil servant will appear before MPs later. BBC Political Editor Nick Robinson said the child abuse probes had been spurred on by "dramatic shifts in public attitudes". Permanent secretary Mark Sedwill will face questions from the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee about his department's handling of child abuse allegations made over a 20-year period. 'Almost exclusively boys' Announcing the reviews in the House of Commons on Monday, Home Secretary Theresa May said the first would be a wide-ranging inquiry - similar to the inquiry into the Hillsborough disaster - led by an independent panel of experts on law and child protection. The second review - which is to be led by head of the NSPCC Peter Wanless - would cover how police and prosecutors handled information given to them, she told MPs. Jump media playerMedia player helpOut of media player. Press enter to return or tab to continue. Home Secretary Theresa May: "With allegations as serious as these, the public needs to have complete confidence" The chairman of the wider inquiry is expected to be named and the inquiry's terms of reference are set to be unveiled on Tuesday. These may or may not include allowing evidence from alleged victims of abuse. Following the announcements, Mr McKelvie - giving his first television interview for 20 years - told the BBC he believed there was evidence to link a number of former politicians to an alleged paedophile network. "I would say we are looking at upwards of 20 (people) and a much larger number of people who have known about it and done nothing about it, who were in a position to do something about it," he said. Mr McKelvie said some of those who were alleged to have abused children had now died. He told the BBC he had spoken to victims over "many, many years" and that children - "almost exclusively boys" - were moved around like "lumps of meat". They had been subjected to the "worst form of abuse", including rape, he said. Mr McKelvie was a child protection manager in Hereford and Worcester and worked on the conviction of paedophile Peter Righton - a former consultant to the National Children's Bureau. Righton, who is now dead, was also a founding member of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), before he was convicted of importing child pornography. However, Mr McKelvie told the BBC that the evidence discovered in the case went much further than simply Righton. 'Boxes of evidence' Mr McKelvie - who had access to documents relating to paedophile networks linked to the Righton inquiry - said he told police in 2012 there were seven boxes of potential evidence being stored by West Mercia police. He said the evidence included letters between Righton and other alleged paedophiles. In 2012, Mr McKelvie took his concerns to Labour MP Tom Watson, who then raised the matter in Parliament, prompting a preliminary police inquiry in 2012 that became a formal inquiry in 2013.

Well this is different.
Was it down for maintenance or broken?
BOSTON (CBS) – A Cape Cod woman says the IRS is to blame after her personal information was broadcast on the Howard Stern show. “No one should go through something like this,” she says. The woman, who did not want her face shown or name used, says it all began when she called the IRS to iron out a tax issue. “I started to receive phone calls and text messages from all over the country informing me that the information I was discussing with the IRS agent was being aired on the Howard Stern show.” A portion of what she thought was a private call was in fact being transmitted via satellite to millions of listeners, including her personal phone number. “As soon as I heard of this information I just started to quiver, and had what I would call an out of body experience,” she says. “I couldn’t believe it at first I thought it was a joke.” The IRS agent was apparently on another line with the Stern show at the same time, but didn’t seem to realize he was on the air. In a statement to WBZ, the IRS said, “We are aware of this troubling situation, and we are currently reviewing the matter. The IRS takes the confidentiality of taxpayer information very seriously, and we have high standards that we expect and require employees to follow.” “A special agent informed me that in fact what I had explained was accurate, that the agent that I had spoken with initially was sent home on administrative leave and that the case was under investigation,” the woman said. The woman says the damage has been done. She’s gotten a slew of prank calls from Stern listeners and is now considering getting a lawyer. “My phone number is out there, my personal conversation and I just feel terribly violated and I feel like I’m in jeopardy that my credit information might be out there and I’m just totally devastated.” Ever since this happened the woman says she’s been a nervous wreck. In fact, she can’t even eat; she says she thought she was speaking to somebody she could trust, but that clearly was not the case.

[quote]Corden's Late Late Show debut, says Alessandra Stanley, "only deepened one of the more enduring mysteries of late-night television. There is no good explanation for why top executives at the major networks would bet on a little-known British performer who resembles every other white male talk show host already on the air rather than take a chance on a more familiar, more charismatic star who, by just being female or non-Caucasian, breaks the mold."

The Guardian reviews it today: ''It’s been salaciously described as “the movie Hollywood doesn’t want you to see”, and while this sounds like marketing hyperbole, An Open Secret’s rocky road to the big screen suggests it might not be too far from the truth. The film, a documentary about the sexual abuse of child actors in the entertainment industry, has struggled to gain distribution, been rejected by numerous festivals and received cuts to excise some of the more litigious content. Its US release is now moving forward this summer to 5 June, and an out-of-festival screening at Cannes took place this week to appeal to international buyers. What Berg does is bravely hand over the details to the audience, naming the accusers without reticence. What the complainants do, with even more courage, is refuse to hide behind pixels or fake names, sharing their difficult stories on camera. It’s shocking and inflammatory stuff, revealing a grim network of abuse, centering on interconnected industry names who would host parties where drugs and alcohol would be used to get what they wanted. What’s even more disturbing than the acts described is the aftermath. The long-term damage to the boys who grew up with addictions and/or psychological difficulties is devastating and in one particular case, life threatening. The film also details the surprisingly muted effects on the paedophiles in question. Both the legal system and film industry have failed to protect these boys and punish the predators who molested them. There seems to be a strange legal and industry apathy towards such crimes, and it’s this that the film hopes to change. In Hollywood, convicted and registered sex offenders are still allowed to work with children and, chillingly, the film reveals that some of the men named in the film are still doing so. As an important call for change within the industry, it’s hugely effective.
Contestants at the International Gay Rodeo in Arkansas, a Bible Belt state with a same-sex marriage ban on its books, competed in events from barrel racing to bull riding on the soft soil of a fairground that looked like just any small-scale rodeo held throughout the United States. ...
Eugene Levy's son and the queniest thing on two legs has a wife of four years and a child. I must say I'm genuinely surprised.
Looks like our beautiful Spanish model may now be 'A Single Man' as that in and out of the closet gay actor was allegedly spotted making out in a public place with a tattooed daddy type; hard to believe that the paranoid actor would do such a thing unless he was drunk like that one time that involved a webcam. But, I digress. This is Jon's thread so let's continue admiring him, shall we?
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?
He was hit by a car crossing the street on Monday. His family wouldn't let see him in the hospital. They are saying I can't come to the funeral either.
Jamie Lee Curtis is Dean Munsch (because Edward Munsch painted "The Scream", you know?) Abigail Breslin is Chanel #5 (because there are five girls in the sorority named Chanel, and she is Chanel number 5) Billie Lourd is wearing earmuffs that make her look like Princess Leia (because her real life mom is Carrie Fisher, get it?)
THE AFTERMATH Starring... Kim Richards (What's she up to now?: A few bottles of vodka, most likely a few more bottles of pills, a lawsuit, a relapse, a scandal, estranged relatives, and a killer dog MIA. Whew! This little spitfire is taking on too much drama! In all seriousness, though, please get well soon, Kim! We all know that at the center, there's a heart of gold. No, really.) Kim Richards (What's she up to now?: Still estranged from Kim after Fingergate--and maybe not too happy with Kathy either--but still trying to pick up the billions of shards. Just don't get cut, sweetie. Cuts can get infected.) Lisa Rinna (What's she up to now?: Schlepping schmatta to QVC for a few more shekels until the next Bravo paycheck. She's also sending Twitter love to Kim. Uh, sure baby.) Eileen Davidson (What she up to now?: F*cking DOOL bitches up as the evil Kristen DiMera. She'll also be starring as the President of the United States alongside Jamie Lee Curtis in the upcoming flick, Spychosis. How's that for Revenge?) Yolanda Foster (What's she up to now?: In bed somewhere, watching time tick by. In all seriousness, though, please get well soon, Yolanda!) Brandi Glanville (What's she up to now?: Same shit, different cock, different bottle of booze.) Lisa Vanderpump (What's she up to now?: Getting ready for the series debut of her new show featuring her new bar, Pump. Name suggestion: Vanderpump Tools. Heh.) with... Bravo Execs busily making casting decisions for Season 6. It'll be a doozy!

Russell knows a thing or two about needing a helping hand, but he knows even more about offering one of his own. The hardy orange cat has been a patient at the Animal Emergency Hospital and Urgent Care Clinic in Raleigh, North Carolina, for more than a year. In early 2014, he was found in the smoldering rubble of a fire that destroyed his home and left with severe burns on his face his body. "He was pretty far gone, and we didn't know if he would make it," clinic staffer Alan Wilford told The Dodo. "He has taken a long time, but he has made a miraculous recovery." Russell has yet to completely heal from his injuries, which require constant attention, but he's made the most of his long stay at the clinic. Despite the discomfort that continues to nag him, the friendly feline has taken it upon himself to make life a little more comfortable for other animals in need of care. ~ Click link for more!

DL, This thread's topic may or may not be partially or completely accurate. Opinions from those with more knowledge are requested. Deadline's article 12/19, linked in R2, states Lynton asked Rand's North Korean expert, Bennett, to view the film and give his opinion once it was completed. In contrast previous public comments claim Lynton sits on Rand's Board which supposedly has CIA links. Bennett and various US Gov't experts on North Korea were acting as technical advisers on the film since Day-1. So why didn't they ask for massive changes? Perhaps they didn't anticipate China's reactions? Now it's better to be in an adversarial relationship with North Korea than with China. "Educated Mind • on Dec 19, 2014 3:49 pm This Rand Employee Bruce Bennett is telling us the design of this film in a last ditch effort stir up dissent in North Korea now that the movie is dead. This film was a complete state Department “nail in the coffin” designed to catalyze the internal coup that has been brewing in North Korea. The fact that Michael Lynton is on the board of the Rand Corporation says it all. The Rand Corporation is a CIA shell company that does social engineering research to analyze how to shape public opinion. What the Rand Corporation failed to realize in all of their projected implications of the release of this film: was a CHINESE cyber attack. China knows what the US is up to, and they know that once Kim Jong Un is axed (which is inevitable), the natural resources and labor pool of North Korea are up for grabs. China used their massive computer power to hack the film, and earn favor with top brass in the North Korean ranks once the bidding begins for the “New” North Korea. China is now two feet inside the door. China had many other things to gain from the attack but this was their primary goal."
What's his story?
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.
I just watched this after recording it off of TCM a while back. I hadn't seen it since it was in the theaters (1973?) Screenplay by Stephen Sondheim and Anthony Perkins, directed by Herbert Ross. James Coburn, Dyan Cannon, Richard Benjamin, Raquel Welch, Joan Hackett, James Mason, Ian McShane. Oh, and Bette Midler, who was essentially unknown at the time, sang "Friends" over the closing credits. I really didn't remember much of anything about it other than it took place on a boat. So it was all new to me. Kind of an interesting movie, but not wholly successful. In a way, too clever for its own good. But a fairly satisfying twist at the end. And good performances from everyone except Raquel. Thoughts? Anyone else seen it recently or recall it fondly?

Anyone? Anyone? Any and all info is appreciated. I'd also like to know specifically: Are housing prices there still dropping? Do people actually live there during the summer or do they vacate? Am I justified in being a bit nervous about living ON the San Andreas fault line? What's the overall quality of life there? How are the people? PS seems like such a unique, quiet little city...I think I (or even my retired parents) would enjoy living there. Any insight?

I've never seen Queer as Folk, and couldn't pick Gale Harold out from a lineup, but someone on here seems to be obsessed with the show and him. I don't get it. is it just someone who seriously is obsessed with him? Or is it a joke I don't get because I never watched the show? There just seem to be SO MANY threads about someone who doesn't even register on my scale as someone we should discuss. Or is that the joke?

Is Chris Pine a reality TV junkie? Judging by his track record of lady friends, we're leaning towards yes. The Star Trek actor was photographed packing on the PDA with Vail Bloom, who appeared on the most recent season of Bravo's Vanderpump Rules. Pine, 34, and Bloom, 32, took a PDA-filled stroll out in Hollywood on Sunday. The possible new couple held hands as they went shopping at American Rag and then were snapped kissing over lunch. This isn't the first time Chris has been spotted out with a reality TV star. He and The Hills's Audrina Patridge dated back in 2009 #neverforget. So who is Vail Bloom? She most recently appeared in season 3 of Vanderpump Rules working as a hostess at Lisa Vanderpump's West Hollywood restaurant Sur. Before she caught the acting bug, Vail was headed down a very different path. She graduated from Princeton with a degree in Architecture but got that good ole' L.A. itch and relocated to L.A. She was even nominated for a Daytime Emmy for her role as Heather Stevens on The Young and the Restless in 2008. While Chris and Vail look quite smitten with one another, Pine has been up front about how difficult it is to settle down in Hollywood. "It's really hard in our business to maintain something," he told Out in 2013. "For me, right now, it'd be really hard." He also added it isn't exactly difficult to meet women in Hollywood, "I feel like it's always springtime." Vail, you've been warned. But lets face it, Chris Pine is certainly a step up from drunkenly flirting with Jax Taylor.
A friend was just served with one from his fiancé (they're both male). This came 2 months after the engagement and about 5 months before the wedding. He's very upset and has refused to sign, but the partner is defensive and pressuring him to sign. They've been together 13 years and have lived as a de facto married couple for over a decade. I don't know specifics, but I can guess that my friend makes under $100,000 himself, while the partner makes several times that amount. The partner might also have some family money, but he's not a billionaire AFIK. Meanwhile my friend, the poorer of the two, is a "wife" in every sense; cooking, cleaning, entertaining, caring for the pets and running the household. This in addition to his full time job. The wealthier partner, from what I see, doesn't do any of that. He works long hours and then sits on the couch the rest of the time. Their relationship model strikes me as very hetero and 1950s, but I always assumed they both liked that and wanted it that way. Now I feel sorry for my friend because he feels like he's been nothing but a servant this whole time. I say if you're working that hard to make your partner's life comfortable, it's a 50/50 split, whether your "work" is billable at $500/hr or cleaning up someone else's shit, and whether that "comfort" is a home cooked meal nightly and your dry cleaning picked up for you, or the security of a fat income and a worry-free retirement. What do you think of prenups? Now that we have marriage rights, things like this are going to be more common among the gays.

Janet Jackson’s new album. We think it’s called “Conversations in a Cafe.” We know it’s produced by Jimmy Jam Harris and Terry Lewis of FlyteTime, her long time musical collaborators. We also know it’s NOT with L.A. Reid at Epic (See: ‘Discipline)’, or at Atlantic Records. It’s probably not ready for July 10th, I’ve heard. It’s still being worked on. However: the word is that Janet may be making a 360 deal with LiveNation, a la Madonna or U2 or Nickelback. In that case, LiveNation would handle the tour and license “Conversations.” Janet’s tour is going to be key to the whole thing. I think it could be HUGE. She cooled off a few years ago, got married, took time off. People miss her. With the right music she can make a big comeback now. Why LiveNation? Let’s be reasonable. Janet’s not doing a deal with AEGLive, after Michael’s death etc. Right? And after album crashes from JLO, Mariah, and others, someone has explained to her that albums by artists of a certain age are not going to sell 1 million copies. So a 360 deal is just right. Harris and Jackson have been dropping clues for weeks, on Twitter. And which label? I could see Warner Bros., which also brought back Prince this year. And you could see Janet’s catalogue going there since it’s spread out everywhere. But remember– Virgin EMI was where Janet made her biggest deal in 1996. Virgin is now part of Capitol Records, which is Universal Music. That would be a natural fit for the LiveNation deal. We’ll see.

I thought she was a very talented presenter and I was impressed with how enthusiastic she was able to be about all the rubbish she had to talk about.%0D\ %0D
I've never used it before and I am a bit nervous about getting stuck with a bad deal. Any tips? I'm looking to stay in Chicago near the Newberry Library--I'm not even clear what neighborhood that's in.

"Did hacker take control of U.S. flight from his seat?" A cybersecurity analyst who was removed from a United Airlines flight after tweeting about the airplane's security vulnerabilities told an FBI agent he had previously hacked into the in-flight entertainment system on a different flight and was able to take command of the plane long enough to make it fly sideways, according to a recently-released search warrant filed by the agency. Chris Roberts, founder of One World Labs, was questioned by the FBI on April 15 upon landing at an airport in Syracuse after his flight from Chicago. According to the search warrant, Roberts told the FBI in February he had taken control of an aircraft, overwriting the code on the plane's "Thrust Management Computer" and issuing a "CLB," or command to climb. “He stated that he thereby caused one of the airplane engines to climb resulting in a lateral or sideways movement of the plane during one of these flights,” FBI Special Agent Mark Hurley wrote in the warrant application filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York and published by a Canadian media outlet. “He also stated that he used Vortex software after compromising/exploiting or ‘hacking’ the airplane’s networks. He used the software to monitor traffic from the cockpit system.” According to the warrant, Roberts — who for years has warned airplane manufacturers of their vulnerability to hackers — said he had accessed in-flight networks more than 15 times between 2011 and 2014 by connecting a modified ethernet cable to a box under the passenger seat in front of him, and had discovered vulnerabilities in three types of Boeing aircraft as well as the Airbus A-320. But he did not indicate which flight he was able to briefly commandeer. Roberts was not charged with a crime, but the FBI seized his computer equipment — including a laptop, several hard drives, flash drives and black iPad with a "Death Wish Coffee Co." sticker — because they believed he "had the ability and the willingness" to hack into in-flight entertainment systems and "possibly the flight control systems" on future flights. According to the FBI, agents warned Roberts in February that "accessing airplane networks without authorization" is a violation of federal laws and that he could be prosecuted. According to the affadavit, a subsequent FBI search of Roberts's seats on that plane “showed signs of tampering." Roberts did not immediately respond to a request for comment. But he told Wired he did not connect his laptop to the box on that flight. “Those boxes are underneath the seats," Roberts said. "How many people shove luggage and all sorts of things under there? I’d be interested if they looked at the boxes under all the other seats and if they looked like they had been tampered [with]. How many of them are broken and cracked or have scuff marks?” He also told Wired that the allegation of commandeering in the FBI warrant application is being taken out of context. "It would appear from what I’ve seen that the federal guys took one paragraph out of a lot of discussions and a lot of meetings and notes and just chose that one as opposed to plenty of others," Roberts said.

Mama Mary Schmucker says this will be her last sesason. Having lots of fun in the English world, being shunned for two years has been a burden and she would like to return to the church. Season premiere is Sunday, May 31st @ 9:00 on TLC.
Showrunners give more details about the upcoming first season. Showrunner Dave Erickson talks with THR and says that the series — a “parallel story rather than a prequel” — still won’t reveal the cause of the zombie apocalypse and answers more burning questions about the summer drama. The drama, described as a “companion” series to TV’s No. 1 drama among the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic, will give the cable network — fresh off the conclusion of Mad Men — a zombie drama in every quarter of the year. It’s also a creative risk of sorts as Robert Kirkman looks to tell a new story (this one set in Los Angeles) that fills in the blanks of the early days of the outbreak — butnot the cause —that changed the world. Fear the Walking Dead starts at the dawn of a flu-like outbreak as one family — played by Cliff Curtis, Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey — try to survive and stay together amid a wave of terror unlike any other as well as their own internal drama. Here, showrunner Dave Erickson (Sons of Anarchy) — who met Kirkman years ago while working on The Walking Dead creator’s little-known TV script Five Years — talks with The Hollywood Reporter about why Fearisn’t really a prequel, rumors of Jenner’s return and if any of the flagship’s stars — past or present — will crossover, and more. AMC has said that Fear the Walking Dead isn’t wholly a prequel. So what is it? We are loosely covering the period of time that [The Walking Dead’s] Rick (Andrew Lincoln) was in his coma in season one. We’re able to watch and experience the things that he missed. It’s more of a parallel story than a prequel; imagine the opening where Rick gets shot and goes in his coma — that day was probably very close to our day one. We’re playing out the idea of what was going on in the country and the world until he woke up, stepped outside and it’s welcome to the apocalypse. That’s why a “companion piece” has been the phrase used at the network. It’s not a prequel in the sense of Better Call Saul, where we’re jumping back six, seven years. It does tie very specifically into the pilot of the original. “Prequel” is not the right word; it’s kind of its own strange, hybrid thing. I wish I had a better word. Kirkman has said the origin of the outbreak is something he’s never going to reveal in the comics or the flagship series. Is that true here, too? I had a couple of early pitches that touched on what you’re referring to and Robert shut me down. For him, it’s never been about what caused it; it’s always been about the impact it has on people. Robert’s always said — and this is what we try to anchor Fear in is: Your parents got divorced or there are zombies. You didn’t get invited to the prom, or there are zombies. Because we’re starting a bit earlier and have more of a slow burn into the apocalypse of season one, it gives us the opportunity to really ground our family’s problems. We have this highly dysfunctional, blended family and all the issues that they face and they would have faced if the apocalypse hadn’t struck, those are the problems we’re exploring. The main narrative drive is the conflicts within this family dynamic and how those things are exacerbated by the arrival of the apocalypse. We’re also trying to show what first is perceived as civic unrest and riots and suddenly we bleed into something that’s wholly unnatural. It’s about a family: Travis (Curtis) just moved in with his girlfriend Madison (Dickens) after they got married. She has two children, one of whom has some issues. Travis has a very pissed-off teenager and an ex-wife. You’re talking about two people who, as the story opens, all they want is to bring their family together under one roof and make everyone whole. The irony for us is that the only thing that helps accomplish that is that the world ends. What’s intriguing to me is to take these problems, which I think would make for a compelling drama, and put them in this much larger canvas and see how they play out

Who has seen this Swedish mini-series about a group of gay friends in the 80's who face the onslaught of AIDS in the Swedish gay community? From little bits and pieces I have seen online, it looks incredible. The main star, Adam Lundgren, is adorable and openly gay. I know it won numerous awards in Sweden and elsewhere. However, it does NOT seem to be available with English subtitles in the US, neither for streaming nor on DVD. The BBC had it with subtitles, but it is now "no longer available". Amazon does have it, but only in EU format, meaning a DVD will not play on US players. (When will someone come up with a universal player?) I find this puzzling, since it was such a highly praised production. You'd think the studio would want it available to the widest audience possible. Anyone have the scoop on this?
What happened to him? Drugs? I'm not the only one who's noticed this.

This pic speaks the truth, yet EVERY Republican will insist it's a total lie. Mostly because they read "conservative" and think "Republican", as if they were synonymous. So they insist that republicans freed the slaves. Okay, sure, but they weren't [italic]conservatives[/italic]. Why are Republicans so damn ignorant of history? And when you show them real, actual history, they deny it and call it all lies?

US Christians ‘bankrolling’ no campaign in Ireland’s gay marriage referendum Row over funding of both campaigns in vote for legalisation of same-sex nuptials, yet despite accusations over foreign money, poll finds 58% will vote yes Henry McDonald, Saturday 16 May 2015 20.18 BST With just five days to go before Ireland’s historic referendum on the legalisation of gay marriage, a bitter row has broken out between supporters and opponents over the funding of their respective campaigns. Supporters of a yes vote have accused opponents of a lack of transparency over finances and of accepting funding from rightwing Christian groups in the US. Ireland’s referendum is the only one in the world where a national electorate is being asked to legalise gay marriage. If it is passed on Friday, gay couples will have the right under the state’s constitution to marry. At present only civil partnerships are recognised in law. Marriage equality would provide full rights of inheritance as well as the right to adopt children – the latter being the most contentious issue of the campaign. A yes vote would also mark yet another defeat for the Catholic church and the political power it used to wield in Ireland. The yes campaign says its opponents have a huge advantage in terms of resources for buying billboard and poster space and have spent tens of thousands of euros in the last few weeks alone. Now no campaigners have booked full-page advertisements to appear later this week in dozens of regional Irish papers, calling on voters to reject incorporating the right for gay couples to marry into the republic’s constitution. One of the no side’s strongest supporters in the US is the lavishly funded National Organisation for Marriage (NOM). In a letter to supporters around the world, it has urged evangelical Christians to visit keepmarriage.org, which is campaigning for a no vote. “Just like in campaigns for marriage here in America,” the letter says, “slanted public opinion polls become fodder to influence and depress supporters of marriage. This is happening in Ireland. If [the no campaign] can manage to pull off a victory, it will be a tremendous boost to the cause of marriage worldwide. Please do what you can to bring awareness to their efforts.” However, a spokesperson for NOM in the US denied this weekend that it had channelled funds to any of the three main opposition groups to gay marriage during the campaign. NOM is aware that foreign donations to lobby groups during referendums in Ireland are banned, the spokesperson said. Some in the no campaign have countered with claims that the yes side has benefited from millions of dollars donated by the Irish-American multimillionaire Chuck Feeney and his Atlantic Philanthropies agency. John Waters, the award-winning Irish columnist and writer, heads the First Families First group, which opposes gay marriage. Waters said it was outrageous that Feeney’s agency had been “allowed to swamp the Irish democratic process”. He and independent Irish senator Rónán Mullen allege that Atlantic Philanthropies is financially backing the yes campaign because it funds a series of pro-gay marriage organisations ranging from the Gay and Lesbian Network to Amnesty International in Ireland. Asked who funds his own group, Waters said: “We have no funding whatsoever and are not seeking any, being simply three private citizens seeking to defend certain constitutional rights and protections.” Atlantic Philanthropies declined to answer questions about the claims, but backers of the yes campaign firmly rejected them. They said their group adhered to the strict rules on campaign funding set up by Ireland’s Standards in Public Office (Sipo) commission. The Sipo register of lobby groups shows that at least 10 of the pro-gay marriage organisations have fully complied with its rules, including a ban on foreign donations. Brian Sheehan, the co-director of pro-gay marriage group Yes Equality, said: “Atlantic Philanthropies are not funding the Yes Equality referendum campaign. Yes Equality is fully funded through its supporters organising fundraising initiatives throughout Ireland. “In addition we ran a crowdfunding campaign to raise monies for our poster, bus tour and booklet campaigns. All elements of the Yes Equality campaign are appropriately registered with the Standards in Public Office commission. Yes Equality is entirely dependent on generous small donations from around the country. The average donation made to Yes Equality has been €70.” Despite the accusations and counter-accusations over foreign money, the no camp appears to be facing an uphill struggle in its battle to defeat proposals to legalise gay marriage. A poll by Ipsos MRBI for the Irish Times this weekend found that 58% will vote yes while 25% will say no, with 17% of the 1,200 surveyed undecided. And in a late bid to stop gay marriage become legal in a state where homosexuality was a crime until 1993, four Irish Catholic bishops released pastoral letters late on Saturday night urging their parishioners to vote no on 22 May. The statements, from Bishops Kieran O’Reilly, Kevin Doran, Martin Drennan and John Fleming will be read out in churches on Sunday. The pro-gay marriage cause also received a significant boost in this last weekend of campaigning when the Republic’s most famous country music star, Daniel O’Donnell, who has an enormous fanbase in rural, conservative Ireland, came out in favour of a yes vote.
How does that happen? Educated people making tons of money, working every day... and it's all shit?
Do the closeted guys you know write in all capital letters when they're writing something by hand? I know it sounds crazy but just humor me. I read once that people who write (not type) in all caps tend to be liars, and my own recent experience indicates that closeted gay guys are more likely to do this too. Just wondering.

My BF's Siamese is about 18 and a real pain in the ass. The damn thing can't even see and shits on the floor. I'm not mean to it, and don't want it to feel any pain. But I know my BF won't take her to the vet, ever. I don't want to spend the money myself. He won't because he will just wait for the stupid thing to keel over. I would like to get rid of it while he's a work and then tell him the thing just went to sleep and didn't wake up.
Come on make your bet!!!

Look guys, you're going to be hearing a lot of shit coming out about me in the papers over the next few days. They'll say I'm a liar, untalented, just a bunch of bullshit. I'm giving you the opportunity to address me, the source, now. I'll answer all questions brutally honestly.
Please take my poll.
A closed thread, inspired by Betty Draper Francis' sad climb up the stairs. When was the last time Mad Men filled up a thread?
Instead we get shitty auto insurance ones.
Why are such simple questions taboo for debate? Do you own your body? If not, who owns it? If you DO own your body, do you own your labor? If not, who owns your labor? If you use your body and labor to create something, who owns the product of your body and labor? If you own your body, and you own your labor, and you can sell these things you create, why do we need government?

If Americans were honest with themselves they would acknowledge that the Republic is no more. We now live in a police state. If we do not recognize and resist this development, freedom and prosperity for all Americans will continue to deteriorate. All liberties in America today are under siege. It didn’t happen overnight. It took many years of neglect for our liberties to be given away so casually for a promise of security from the politicians. The tragic part is that the more security was promised — physical and economic — the less liberty was protected. With cradle-to-grave welfare protecting all citizens from any mistakes and a perpetual global war on terrorism, which a majority of Americans were convinced was absolutely necessary for our survival, our security and prosperity has been sacrificed. It was all based on lies and ignorance. Many came to believe that their best interests were served by giving up a little freedom now and then to gain a better life. The trap was set. At the beginning of a cycle that systematically undermines liberty with delusions of easy prosperity, the change may actually seem to be beneficial to a few. But to me that’s like excusing embezzlement as a road to leisure and wealth — eventually payment and punishment always come due. One cannot escape the fact that a society’s wealth cannot be sustained or increased without work and productive effort. Yes, some criminal elements can benefit for a while, but reality always sets in. Reality is now setting in for America and for that matter for most of the world. The piper will get his due even if “the children” have to suffer. The deception of promising “success” has lasted for quite a while. It was accomplished by ever-increasing taxes, deficits, borrowing, and printing press money. In the meantime the policing powers of the federal government were systematically and significantly expanded. No one cared much, as there seemed to be enough “gravy” for the rich, the poor, the politicians, and the bureaucrats.

Sam Smith abides by the popular “sticks and stones…” nursery rhyme however there is one word that does, in fact, hurt him. It starts with an “F” but it’s not the expected “f-ggot,” but rather “fat.” Smith sat down for an expansive interview on Sunday’s 60 Minutes in which he revealed that he’s been out and proud since he was 10-years-old, never having that decision be the cause of any turmoil despite enduring bullying. The weight, however, has long plagued him, resulting in his recent dropping of fifteen pounds in an attempt to combat his food addiction. Related: Sam Smith Drops 14 Pounds In Two Weeks, Flaunts New Bod On Instagram “If someone called me fat that affects me way more than someone calling me f-ggot,” Smith revealed. “I think just because I’ve accepted that if someone calls me a f-ggot, it’s like, I am gay and I’m proud to be gay so there are no issues. If someone calls you fat it’s like, that’s something I want to change. That’s something I can change so that affects me more.” Watch a clip from the interview below.
Someone needs some press, obviously. "Cate Blanchett has hinted at past lesbian romances in an interview with Variety. The actress, who has been married to Andrew Upton for 18 years, plays a bisexual in a new film Carol. In the interview with Variety, the 45-year-old was asked whether her movie role was her first lesbian experience, she smiled and coyly asked, "On film — or in real life?" When asked to confirm whether she's had past relationships with women, she said: "Yes. Many times". The two-time Oscar winner refused to be drawn further, but doesn't necessarily define sexual orientation with labels. "I never thought about it," she says, when asked why her character never "came out". "I don't think Carol thought about it." She did, however think about how to best get into the role of Carol, based on a controversial 1952 book The Price Of Salt. "I read a lot of girl-on-girl books from the period," said Blanchett, who plays opposite Rooney Mara in the film. As for the response to Blanchett's revelation, the mother-of-four is unlikely to find out. She told Variety that she'll never join Twitter. "I think I'd end up in rehab," she joked. "That stuff is addictive." She doesn't Google herself either. She told the magazine she finds out if she's made headlines when she walks her kids to school and the crossing guard tells her, "What they said about you - that was terrible!" She takes the penetrating gaze of the public lightly though. "We need to get into people's private lives now," she said. "If they are hiding something, they are dishonest." Blanchett's new film will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17. In the meantime, Blanchett and her family are gearing up to move to New York or San Francisco, once husband Upton has finished his tenure at Sydney Theatre Company. Blanchett and Upton have three boys - Dashiell, 13, Roman, 10 and Ignatius, six. The couple also recently adopted a baby daughter, Edith Vivian Patricia Upton. "It's extraordinary," Blanchett told Fairfax about becoming a mother again. "It's been an absolute gift and we're utterly besotted."

"Veteran’s Funeral Drive Detoured By Hearse Drivers To Dunkin' Donuts" Two Florida hearse drivers have been fired after they stopped at a doughnut shop with a flag-draped coffin in the vehicle on the way to a funeral and an outraged man sent a video to a local veterans group. Rob Carpenter spotted the hearse in the parking lot of a New Port Richey Dunkin’ Donuts on Tuesday with its curtains open and the coffin visible. In the coffin was the body of 84-year-old Lt. Col. Jesse Coleman, a decorated soldier who served in Korea and Vietnam. The hearse was transporting him from Clearwater’s Veteran’s Funeral Care to his funeral. Carpenter confronted the driver and sent images to Veteran’s Warriors. The group posted the images to Facebook. “What could they have been thinking?” Veterans Funeral Care President Jim Rudolph told WFTS-TV in Tampa. “I haven’t got the foggiest idea.” Rudolph said he apologized to Coleman’s family, and fired the two men despite a request by Coleman’s widow to spare their jobs. “I think if they had the ability to turn back the day, they’d do things different,” Rudolph said.

Does anyone here ever see this guy? He's on in the mornings here in New York, he dresses and acts like a sketchy used car salesman. He seems to think he's adorably funny, constantly snarks and then looks directly into the camera, he dresses like a Jersey mafia boss and does this weird thing where he bares his teeth when trying to smile. If you've seen him, you know what I'm talking about. It's incredibly weird. He also speaks in a rapid-fire way, like an auctioneer. Worst of all, the man can NOT forecast the weather. Every single week, without fail, he'll predict a "glorious weekend" or talk about how we'll have sun and "MAYBE a few clouds" in the coming weekend.. And every weekend he predicts this, we have clouds and rain 24/7. He seems terrified of actually reporting on what the actual weather for the day will be and fills his weather report with a lot of bullshit jokes and graphics but never just a straight weather forecast for the day. We generally suffer him each morning as we're both getting ready for work. And yes, I realize we can change the channel if we want to, but we like WABC's morning news team, with the exception of this horrible weather guy.
The Tumlbrinas are SCREAMING WITH ANGRY POWER! [quote]Controversial comedian Louis CK left Saturday Night Live viewers confused and uncomfortable after a lengthy joke about child molestation. Opening the show, he mused that the life of a child sex offender is so horrific that abusing young boys 'must be really good'. He compared the 'addiction' to his love of candy, saying he would give them up if he knew they could land him in jail for life, 'but they obviously don't taste as good as little boys'. It was pretty mild compared to Richard Pryor in his heyday, but we now live in the Age of Outrage, so...
The hysterical outcry against the Russian anti-gay law is a monumental public relations scam and has nothing to do with genuine concerns about gay rights.
Guesses? And I mean premium cable, not network.

This thread inspired me: Stuff that shitty friends do... Anyone want to build a list with me? My "friend" is in town, and so far - it is not going well - Complain about their $200k job being "boring" when you've been unemployed for months. - Send you pics of guys they hook up with, who are way out of your league. - Cancel plans on you to hook up with someone (related to previous). - Complain that the restaurants you picked are "for old people" and you need to do a better job selecting "cool places" - but none that require walking more than 2 minutes or getting in a cab. _________________________________

3 or 4 years ago a big group of East Indian men came down and gathered together on the rocks so they had a good view... they were fully clothed and giggling amongst themselves... It took less than 10 minutes for someone to do something. This naked, colourful, sparkly, flammmmmmming homosexual went right up to them and started chatting them up. He was putting his arms around them and dancing a little. Seconds later a bunch of his naked friends came up, with their boombox blaring some lady gaga, and started doing the same. The creepers were SUPER uncomfortable and left right away. That entire half of the beach stood up and cheered. It was a great day. Same shit (creeper voyeurs) happens at Hanlan's all the time.
Prancing around in his hotel room in not a whole lot. Nice body.

This week? This month? This year? Pick the standout and tell us about it. You need to be congratulated by your peers.
I guess when you can't make up your mind if someone is hot or not, they aren't. So, is he? And does the camera linger just millimeters above where his dick begins because going any lower would explicitly reveal the sheer enormity of it? I just don't know.
