30 May 2015 Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are slated to sit down with Fox’s Megyn Kelly next week to discuss the scandal involving their son Josh’s admitted sexual molestation of five young girls, including his sisters. In a press release, the Duggars write: “Next week we will sit down with Megyn Kelly on Fox News to share our hearts with you about the pain that we walked through as a family twelve years ago, the tears we all shed and the forgiveness that was given. We appreciate the outpouring of love and prayers for our family at this time.” Revelations over a week ago by In Touch Weekly have rocked the reality show family, with TLC pulling their show off the air as advertisers flee the now-less than-wholesome Christian family show, 19 Kids and Counting. While it remains to be seen exactly how hard-hitting former attorney Megyn Kelly’s questions will be be for the Christian couple, the appearance by the two for a half-hour program on Fox will massively increase coverage of the Duggar family by the network which has avoided the controversy like a biblical plague since the story broke. According to Media Matters, Fox News devoted less than 2 minutes to the breaking Duggar molestation story during the normally news-less Memorial Day holiday weekend, while at the same time, Fox “media analyst” Howard Kurtz knocked the other networks for “piling on.” Since that time, the network has found time to demonstrate how not to change a car tire and shared a recipe for Ainsley’s Southern Pimento cheese. The Duggars appearance on The Kelly Files is slated for Wednesday, June 3.
Found some DVDs at the library so decided to watch. Hadn't seen it in years. Jesus, green rug in every square inch of that house. Did they know Diana Hyland was sick when she was cast or did she not get sick until after the pilot? She's only in four episodes. Think Betty Buckley was poisoning her? Why was Adam Rich considered cute? He looked like a mutant monkey. Grant Goodeve looks to be three feet tall when he's next to other men on the show. He and Willy Aames are both born again now so feh.
Colorado school refuses to let valedictorian come out as gay in speech Gay rights activists criticise high school’s decision as principal says graduation ceremony is not the time for a student to ‘push his personal agenda’ Associated Press in Longmont, Colorado, Friday 29 May 2015 14.24 EDT A Colorado charter school refused to let a class valedictorian deliver a graduation speech in which he planned to come out as gay, prompting criticism from activists. Evan Young, 18, said he agreed to make some suggested changes to the speech he planned to deliver on 16 May at the commencement ceremony for Twin Peaks charter academy high school in Longmont. But he refused to remove the disclosure about his sexuality, the Daily Camera reported on Thursday. “My main theme is that you’re supposed to be respectful of people, even if you don’t agree with them. I figured my gayness would be a very good way to address that,” Young said. He and his father, Don Young, said they weren’t notified until a few minutes before the ceremony that Evan wouldn’t be allowed to speak or be recognized as valedictorian. Evan said he previously emailed a speech with other suggested changes to school officials, but they contend that he didn’t submit a revised version. In a statement, the district said the first draft also included ridiculing comments about faculty and students and was condescending toward the school. School attorney Barry Arrington said in the statement that a graduation speech is not the time for a student to “push his personal agenda on a captive audience”. Before the ceremony, Don said the school principal, PJ Buchmann, called and said the speech was a problem because his son had mentioned another student’s name and planned to come out as gay. Don said he and his wife didn’t know their son was gay. They were initially sympathetic to Buchmann’s objections to the speech, considering there would be young children at the event, but did not like how Buchmann handled the matter. “It’s wrong, and it’s not fair,” said Mardi Moore, executive director of Out Boulder, a gay activist group. “The young man has all but a 4.5 GPA; he has told me that since a toddler he has worked for that honor, and they denied it.” Out Boulder has asked Young to deliver his speech at an annual awards event on Sunday.

You could even order assassinations! ... ROSS ULBRICHT CONCEIVED of his Silk Road black market as an online utopia beyond law enforcement’s reach. Now he’ll spend the rest of his life firmly in its grasp, locked inside a federal penitentiary. On Friday Ulbricht was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for his role in creating and running Silk Road’s billion-dollar, anonymous black market for drugs. Judge Katherine Forrest gave Ulbricht the most severe sentence possible, beyond what even the prosecution had explicitly requested. The minimum Ulbricht could have served was 20 years. “The stated purpose [of the Silk Road] was to be beyond the law. In the world you created over time, democracy didn’t exist. You were captain of the ship, the Dread Pirate Roberts,” she told Ulbricht as she read the sentence, referring to his pseudonym as the Silk Road’s leader. “Silk Road’s birth and presence asserted that its…creator was better than the laws of this country. This is deeply troubling, terribly misguided, and very dangerous.” In addition to his prison sentence, Ulbricht was also ordered to pay a massive restitution of more than $183 million, what the prosecution had estimated to be the total sales of illegal drugs and counterfeit IDs through the Silk Road—at a certain bitcoin exchange rate—over the course of its time online. Any revenue from the government sale of the bitcoins seized from the Silk Road server and Ulbricht’s laptop will be applied to that debt. Ulbricht had stood before the court just minutes earlier in navy blue prison clothes, pleading for a lenient sentence. “I’ve changed. I’m not the man I was when I created Silk Road,” he said, as his voice grew hoarse with emotion and cracked. “I’m a little wiser, a little more mature, and much more humble.” “I wanted to empower people to make choices in their lives…to have privacy and anonymity,” Ulbricht told the judge. “I’m not a sociopathic person trying to express some inner badness.” Ulbricht’s sentencing likely puts the final seal on the saga of Silk Road, the anarchic underground market the 31-year-old Texan created in early 2011. At its peak, the Dark Web site grew to a sprawling smorgasbord of every narcotic imaginable—before Ulbricht was arrested in a public library in San Francisco in October of 2013. Eighteen months later, he was convicted in a Manhattan court on seven felony charges, including conspiracies to traffic in narcotics and launder money, as well as a “kingpin” charge usually reserved for the leaders of organized crime groups. Two of those seven charges were deemed redundant and dropped by the prosecution just days before the sentencing, though that technical change to the charges didn’t lessen Ulbricht’s mandatory minimum sentence—or his ultimate punishment. Ulbricht’s defense team has already said it will seek an appeal in his case. That call for a new trial will be based in part on recent revelations that two Secret Service and Drug Enforcement Administration agents involved in the investigation of the Silk Road allegedly stole millions of dollars of bitcoin from the site. One of the agents is even accused of blackmailing Ulbricht, and of allegedly selling him law enforcement information as a mole inside the DEA. But the judge in Ulbricht’s case ruled that those Baltimore-based agents weren’t involved in the New York FBI-led investigation that eventually took down the Silk Road, preventing their alleged corruption from affecting Ulbricht’s fate. Speaking to press after the sentencing, Ulbricht’s lead attorney Joshua Dratel said that Forrest’s sentence was “unreasonable, unjust, unfair and based on improper consideration with no basis in fact or law.” He added: “I’m disappointed tremendously.” In emotional statements at the hearing, the parents of drug users who had overdosed and died from drugs purchased from the Silk Road called for a long sentence for Ulbricht. “I strongly believe my son would still be alive today if Mr. Ulbricht had never created Silk Road,” said one father whose 25-year old son had died from an overdose of heroin, requesting “the most severe sentence the law will allow.” In the weeks leading up to his sentencing hearing, Ulbricht’s defense team attempted to lighten his punishment with arguments about his motives and character, as well as emphasizing the Silk Road’s positive effect on its drug-using customers. In more than a hundred letters, friends, family, and even fellow inmates pointed to Ulbricht’s idealism and lack of a criminal history. And the defense argued that Silk Road had actually reduced harm in the drug trade by ensuring the purity of the drugs sold on the site through reviews and ratings, hosting discussions on “safe” drug use, and giving both buyers and sellers an avenue to trade in narcotics while avoiding the violence of the streets. But the prosecution countered that any protection the Silk Road offered drug users was dwarfed by the increased access it offered to dangerous and addictive drugs. And beyond the two parents who spoke at the Friday hearing, it pointed to six individuals who it claimed had died of drug overdoses from drugs purchased on the Silk Road. In her statement preceding Ulbricht’s sentencing, Judge Forrest fully sided with the prosecution against the defense’s “harm reduction” argument, arguing that the Silk Road vastly expanded access to drugs. “Silk Road was about fulfilling demand, and it was about creating demand,” she said. “It was market-expanding.” She also tore into the argument that the Silk Road reduced violence in the drug trade, pointing out that most of the academic papers submitted by the defense to support that argument focused only on the protection for the final buyer of drugs. But that digital remove, she argued, did nothing to prevent violence at any other point in the narcotics supply chain, from production to distribution. “The idea that it’s harm reducing is so very narrow,” she said. “It’s…about a privileged group, sitting in their own homes, with their high speed internet connections.” The Justice Department also argued in their letter to Judge Forrest that Ulbricht should be made an example of to stop even more Dark Web market kingpins from following in his footsteps. After all, dozens of copycat sites and advancements on the Silk Road market model have sprouted in the years since its takedown, including the Silk Road 2, Evolution, and the currently largest Dark Web black market to survive law enforcement’s attacks, Agora. To combat the spread of those anonymous bazaars, prosecutors asked Judge Forrest to “send a clear message” with a sentence for Ulbricht well beyond the mandatory minimum. Judge Forrest sided with the prosecution on that point, too, arguing that she needed to create a strong deterrent for the next Dread Pirate Roberts. “For those considering stepping into your shoes…they need to understand without equivocation that there will be severe consequences,” Forrest said. The defense’s arguments about Ulbricht’s character and his idealistic motives were also undercut by accusations that Ulbricht had paid for the murder of six people, including a potential informant and a blackmailer. Those accusations never became formal charges in Ulbricht’s case—five out of six of the murder-for-hires appear to have been part of a lucrative scam targeting Ulbricht, with no actual victims. But those murder accusations nonetheless deeply colored Ulbricht’s trial, and strongly influenced his sentence. “I find there is ample and unambiguous evidence that [Ulbricht] commissioned five murders to protect his commercial enterprise,” Forrest said, leaving out one alleged attempted murder for which Ulbricht was charged in a different case. With those attempted murders as context, Forrest was merciless in her assessment of Ulbricht’s seeming multiple personalities: the altruistic and admirable young man described in the letters sent to her as evidence of his character, versus the callous drug lord she saw in his actions. “People are very complicated, and you are one of them,” she said simply. “There is good in you, Mr. Ulbricht. There is also bad. And what you did with the Silk Road was terribly destructive.” In his own letter to the judge ahead of sentencing, Ulbricht took a more personal tack, promising that he had learned that the Silk Road was a “terrible mistake” and a “very naive and costly idea” that he regretted and wouldn’t repeat. He pleaded for a chance at freedom in the decades after his incarceration. “I’ve had my youth, and I know you must take away my middle years, but please leave me my old age,” he wrote. “Please leave a small light at the end of the tunnel, an excuse to stay healthy, an excuse to dream of better days ahead, and a chance to redeem myself in the free world before I meet my maker.” But in her sentencing statement, Forrest denied even that the Silk Road was a naive experiment, or some sort of youthful mistake. “It was a carefully planned life’s work. It was your opus,” she said. “You wanted it to be your legacy. And it is.”

I was emailed by a friend from HS who invited me to a BBQ where a lot of our old classmates were going to be. I passed, but he pressed me saying it would be fun. I went and I did have fun, especially after Gary arrived. I considered him my best friend through HS. He tells me that he actually hated my guts. It turns out on the first day of grade seven we were all sitting in home room and Gary said he was really excited and I said, "Why, did your mommy buy you new underwear?" which got a laugh, even from the teacher. We hung out all the way to grade 10 when he moved away. When I asked if he hated me why did he remain friends with me, he said because he was looking for an opportunity to embarrass me like I did him. When I told him nothing he ever said or did embarrassed me and I took it as friends busting each others balls, he just starred at me and then walked away. I should have stayed home.
Razzies for George?
**BREAKING** "Former Md. Gov. O'Malley jumps into 2016 Democratic race" BALTIMORE (AP) — Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley on Saturday joined the Democratic presidential race with a longshot challenge to Hillary Rodham Clinton for the 2016 nomination. "I'm running for you," he told a crowd of about 1,000 people at Federal Hill Park in Baltimore, where he served as mayor before two terms as governor. He said "the urgent work" drawing him into the campaign was "to rebuild the truth of the American dream for all Americans." O'Malley has made frequent visits in recent months to early-voting Iowa, where he was headed later Saturday, and New Hampshire, his destination Sunday. Yet he remains largely unknown in a field dominated by Clinton. "My decision is made. Now you will all have a vital choice to make next year, for the good of your families, and for the good of the country you love and carry in your hearts." Already in the race is Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who could be O'Malley's main rival for the support of the Democratic left. An ally of former President Bill Clinton, O'Malley was the second governor to endorse Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in 2007. But he says Democrats deserve a choice in the 2016 primary. "The presidency is not a crown to be passed back and forth ... between two royal families," O'Malley said. "It is a sacred trust to be earned from the people of the United States, and exercised on behalf of the people of the United States." A leading Republican contender is former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, son and brother of presidents. The 52-year-old O'Malley has spoken often about the economic challenges facing the nation and said he would bring new leadership, progressive values and the ability to accomplish things. "Our economic and political system is upside down and backward and it is time to turn it around," he told the crowd. "We are allowing our land of opportunity to be turned into a land of inequality." O'Malley has presented himself to voters as a next-generation leader for the party, pointing to his record as governor on issues such as gay marriage, immigration, economic issues and the death penalty. Just weeks ago, riots in Baltimore broke out following the death of Freddie Gray, an African-American man who died in police custody following his arrest last month. A few demonstrators gathered near Federal Hill Park to protest O'Malley's criminal justice policies as mayor, an office he held from 1999 until his election as governor in 2006. "He's claiming to be this savior of Baltimore, but he's not," said Duane Davis, who said he is homeless. During O'Malley's speech, there was sporadic shouting from protesters. O'Malley was known for his tough-on-crime, "zero tolerance" policies that led to large numbers of arrests for minor offenses. Critics say it sowed distrust between police and the black community. Supporters note the overall decrease in violent crime during his tenure. O'Malley has defended his work to curb crime, saying he helped address rampant violence and drug abuse. He has said the unrest in Baltimore should wake up the nation to the need to address despair in poor communities. "Last month, television sets around the world were filled with the anger and the rage, and the flames of some of the humblest and hardest hit neighborhoods of Baltimore. For all of us who have given so much of our energies to making our city a safer, fairer, more just and more prosperous place, it was a heartbreaking night in the life of our city," O'Malley said. "But there is something to be learned from that night, and there is something to be offered to our country from those flames. For what took place here was not only about race, not only about policing in America. It's about everything it is supposed to mean to be an American." O'Malley could soon be joined in the Democratic field by former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, who plans to make an announcement next week, and former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, who is exploring a potential campaign. *** Now, what do we do?

Per NYT: "WASHINGTON — J. Dennis Hastert, the former Republican speaker of the House of Representatives, was paying [bold]a man[/bold] to not say publicly that Mr. Hastert had sexually abused him decades ago, according to two people briefed on the evidence uncovered in an F.B.I. investigation into the payments. Federal prosecutors on Thursday announced the indictment of Mr. Hastert on allegations that he made cash withdrawals designed to hide those payments and for lying to federal authorities about the purpose of the withdrawals. The man – who was not identified in court papers — told the F.B.I. that he had been touched by Mr. Hastert when Mr. Hastert was a high school teacher and wrestling coach, the two people said on Friday. The people briefed on the investigation spoke on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to be identified discussing a federal investigation. The F.B.I. declined to comment."

Once again we return to the red clay of Paris. Rafa Nadal: he will win again, no? Or is his body worn out to the point of decline and retirement? "Nole" is itching to hold La Coupe des Mousquetaires high above his head, but will it be denied by the man with the famous ass? Sad, mopey Murray still under the sway of his Lady Macbeth of a mother will, one suspects, not triumph. Will Kevin Spacey comfort him in his time of need? Have Pospisil and Berdych ever been seen in the same place together? Your OP kindly submits that they may be, in fact, the same person travelling through dimensions of time and space. Will Federer manage one last victory at Roland Garros? Will Brooklyn-Decker Roddick, model and thin, show a baby bump and snidely insult Mirka Federer by saying that her bump comes from having sex with her hot husband rather than from Peeps and HoHos? Speaking of Roddicks, both present and future, will we see Fox commentator Andy's beautiful ass? Now, on to the ladies. Will Sharapova be able to defend her title against the powerful Serena Williams? Will Venus Williams manage to strive for success and string together some wins at Roland Garros? Shouldn't we lump Petkovic, Wozniacki, Kvitova, Pliskova, Kuznetsova, Azarenka, Strycova, Ivanovic, Halep and Kerber in one bucket and largely ignore them because that's pretty much what ESPN will do in order to put the spotlight on American players, men and women, and might-as-well-be-American players (we're looking at you M. Sharapova)? Will Serena sail smoothly into the final? Of course not, because standing in her way is someone you have to pencil in for the final - Bouchard. Right, Chrissie, World's Worst Tennis Commentator? And, as always, let's maintain our comments and discussion civil and demonstrating the better angels of our nature in keeping with the ideals of this sport which is, and should continue to be, at its best a remnant and a bastion of civilized behavior and strongly contested, yet honorable, competition. And finally, will the salivating mouth and loins of avowed and world-renowned heterosexual, Pam Shriver, at long last find the man they have been seeking, one who can satisfy her base lust and cravings for men?
One that has a decent story and good sex scenes.

I've been to the doctor because I'm tired all the fucking time. All my blood work is fine; blood pressure, thyroid, blood sugar, testosterone, everything is normal. But I'm always tired, always in a mental fog, chronic headaches and body aches. All I want to do is sleep. Doctor says I should exercise more. When I do exercise it actually makes my mood worse and I snap at everyone and feel angry. This has been going on for over a year now with no end in sight.

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.

My god she is like watching paint dry.
Another HGTV mantra. While House Hunters in mainland US want the granite countertops and jack and Jill bathrooms, the HHI episodes set anywhere in a warm climate have to have a house "within walking distance of the beach." After the Boxing Day and Japanese tsunamis, the last place I want to live is within walking distance of the beach. Even Hurricane Sandy proved you shouldn't live within walking distance of an ocean or bay. Poll: would you want to live within walking distance to the beach if you could?
Or in any big city for that matter? Putting the money aside for a second, is it something you would choose? Personally, I'd feel like I was living in an aeroplane. Every time you went out it would be an ear- popping ride in an elevator. I'd feel so disconnected from the world. Pas ma scène.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a group like Al-Gayda or Lezbollah that was devoted to the militant advancement of gay rights by destroying all the institutions that oppose it and the people who run them along with them?

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.

For me, it's 3 days. My thoughts start getting very sexual and every man starts looking sexy
Here's for you
Ugh. This, along with BLASTS, is so worn out. I wish the Internet could think of a better way of phrasing such headlines. What's bothering you?
I was only semi-out when I was 17 (12 years ago), but I adopted a very androgynous, somewhat emo-ish style, sometimes wearing eyeliner and nail polish. One day I was the only left hanging around in the locker room after sports, when 4 guys from my school walked past the half-open door, and one of them muttered "fagg*t" at me. I replied by shouting out something about fucking their mothers (don't remember if it involved me or them doing the deed). That made them stop in their tracks, and 3 of them came in, telling the 4th to keep watch at the door. 2 grabbed hold of me, and I thought the 3rd one ( who was, btw, the nerdiest looking of them) was going to beat me up now. But then he told them to turn me round and bend me over. They did it, and he gagged me with my t-shirt and pulled down my trousers. Then he took my hand cream from the bench and smeared some on his dick. He told them to hold me still, and started entering my ass, telling me to stop clenching; when he'd made it past the sphincter, he said "Good girl." One of the other 2 seemed rather uncomfortable with it all (yet still held me down), whereas the other one clearly found it funny. He shot his load inside my ass (which seemed to go on for ages, almost as if he was having 2 orgasms in quick succession). When he was finally done, he said "You were not bad, sweetie - not bad at all" and patted my ass; then he took out a few dollar bills and threw them at my feet, saying "Here, buy yourself some new nail polish on me". I was at first afraid the other two were going to fuck me as well, but they let me go. As they were all leaving, he said I should probably go and wash my ass now. I had always had something of a masochistic streak (even before puberty) and after the incident I became kind of obsessed with the guy who'd raped me. I always stared at him when I saw him in the halls, and in the one class we had together. His friends (not the ones who'd been involved in the rape) noticed, and it became kind of a running joke among them that I had a "crush" on him (teasing him about going to the prom with me and stuff like that). He himself seemed to be half amused, half bemused by it. One day we were alone in the toilets, and I took the urinal right next to his. When he had finished pissing, he went into a stall (leaving the door open), sat down and took out his dick. I just looked at him, and he said "Well?". So I went in, closed the door behind us, knelt down and started sucking his dick. After a while he told me to sit down on it and ride him to orgasm, and I did it. As I rode him I didn't exactly kiss him, but I put my closed lips against his closed lips. When he had cum, he said "Man, you're such a slut" and left. That was pretty much our last interaction. I haven't really thought about him much the past 10 years or so. I didn't have any pictures of him, and his name was so generic I wouldn't have found anything on the web. But a few weeks ago, by total coincidence, I happened to see a photo of a guy who looks [italic]exactly[/italic] like he used to (to prevent misunderstanding - I know from the context that it' s definitely not a picture of him, just a "doppelgänger"). And since then, I've jerked off to it pretty much every other day - always while replaying the 2 experiences described above (but mainly the original rape). On a scale of 1 to 10, how fucked up am I for this?
I haven't seen such a gay vocal group since the YMCA
I don't give a shit. Yes, every murder should be solved, especially for the sake of the surviving family and friends. But for fuck's sake, quit putting this story and other similar ones as front page headlines.
Who yells at her brother "QUIET!! MOM HAS A HEADACHE!!" She says it with such venom. I want to kill her. I seriously want to pummel her face with that box of Legos shot from a machine gun. Something also tells me they wouldn't have produced a commercial like that with a little boy yelling orders at a little girl that way. She's a fucking monster from hell!

UNITED NATIONS — The boys said they approached the French soldiers because they were hungry. Some were so young that they didn't quite understand the acts the soldiers demanded in return. One boy, 8 or 9 years old, said he did it several times to the same soldier, "until one day an older kid saw him and told him what he was doing was bad." Another boy, 9, said he thought the soldiers had been urinating. United Nations investigators heard such stories of sexual abuse from several boys in May and June 2014 in Central African Republic, where French soldiers were protecting a sprawling displaced persons camp in the conflict-torn capital, Bangui. One year later, revelations about how the U.N. handled the boys' accounts have horrified people both inside and outside the world body. Statements marked "strictly confidential" have shown that its top human rights officials failed to follow up for several months on the allegations their own office had collected. No arrests have been announced, and it's not clear where the accused soldiers, who were supporting a U.N. peacekeeping force, are now. The U.N. seems unable to say when the abuses stopped, or how long it continued to investigate. On Friday, more documents were released by a non-governmental organization run by two former U.N. staffers that's calling for an independent investigation into the case. The documents show U.N. officials scrambling not so much to help a French inquiry into the allegations but to investigate the human rights staffer who told French authorities in the first place. A separate report with the children's allegations, obtained by The Associated Press, says the first account was heard May 19 by a human rights staffer and a UNICEF child protection officer. The interviews continued through June 24. A Geneva-based human rights staffer shared the report with French authorities in July. The boys' accounts are simple and stark. An 11-year-old said he had gone "looking for empty wrappings to play with" when a French soldier first called him over, later giving the boy food and a little money in exchange for oral sex. Another boy, 9, "had been severely beaten by his mother when he told her what had happened." A UNICEF spokeswoman did not immediately respond to questions Friday about how the children's agency reported the allegations, and to whom. The case has exposed a glaring weakness in a world body that considers human rights one of its three main pillars: It has no specific guidelines on how to handle allegations of child sexual abuse, and no requirement for immediate, mandatory reporting. Even when French gendarmes showed up at the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Bangui to investigate the allegations — the report shared with French authorities is on the mission's letterhead — they were told they had to go through proper U.N. channels and talk to the human rights office in Geneva instead. That was in August. At the end of March, the U.N. finally handed France a redacted copy of the same report they already had. The U.N. says the report first given to the French included the names of the children and witnesses and was a breach of protocol. The children's allegations didn't make their way to top officials at U.N. headquarters in New York for months. On Friday, U.N. peacekeeping chief Herve Ladsous told reporters he first heard about them this spring. When asked why the mission in Central African Republic didn't alert his office in New York right away, he said, "Some reporting lines maybe didn't function." The NGO that on Friday released internal U.N. documents related to the case, AIDS-Free World, called for an independent investigation into the way the allegations were handled from the start. "The grim reality is that those with experience within the U.N. system are unlikely to be surprised," its statement said. "They know that this is not an unusual case; it is simply one that has come, partially, to light." A spokesman for the U.N. human rights office did not comment Friday. The spokesman for the U.N. secretary-general, Stephane Dujarric, told reporters that the documents "may or may not be authentic." It is not clear whether a U.N. commission of inquiry on Central African Republic looked into the child sexual abuse allegations. In August, as word of the case started to spread, the commission gained a new member, Philip Alston. Alston's bio at New York University, where he is a law professor, lists "children's rights" as a research interest. In an email to the AP, he said only that the commission is now defunct. The commission's final report in December suggests that the U.N. secretary-general report alleged violations by all peacekeepers in Central African Republic, regardless of whether they are part of a U.N. mission. But on Friday, his spokesman said the secretary-general only heard of the child sexual abuse allegations this spring. Among the documents released Friday is a March 24 statement by the human rights staffer who interviewed the children. The statement is for the U.N. investigation into what it calls the "leak" to French authorities. Between September and March, the staffer says, she didn't hear anything about the case. But she offers, "I still have all the notes I took of the interviews if they would be of any help."

Another day, another altar boy with PTSD:
As the state legislative session comes to a close in Texas, Democrats have impressively managed to beat back the bulk of over 20 anti-gay bills conservative Republicans had created in committees in an effort to blunt a Supreme Court ruling this month that could bring marriage equality to the entire country, including Texas. Some of the bills were stalled by Democrats running out the clock, while Republicans chose not to move forward with others. Rep. Mary Gonzalez (D-Clint), a member of the Texas House from the El Paso area and the nation’s first openly pansexual legislator, says one way she tries to change minds among her colleagues in both parties is by fostering a “familial” bond, which she believes goes a long way toward helping people “overcome a lot of their prejudice.” Sitting in her office at the Texas State Capitol in Austin, speaking with me for an interview for SiriusXM Progress, Gonzalez first wanted to dispel some misinformation about her identity. She first came out as pansexual — which is distinct from bisexual because it defines an individual who is attracted to various gender identities — in 2012 after first being elected, noting that she’d dated transgender and "gender-queer" people. But it had been reported that she came out as lesbian first and then later came out as pansexual. But, she explained, "lesbian" was never an identity that she claimed for herself. “It’s a more complicated history,” she said. “The media labeled me [as a lesbian]. I always identified as queer or LGBT-identified or pan. When I first came out in politics, I used to say I was LGBT-identified and the media took that [as], ‘Well she must be lesbian’ as opposed to having a more complex understanding of our sexual community. And so, because of that I had to clarify that and say, ‘No, not lesbian. Love them. [laughs] but…’ I identify as pan and talk about what that means. And having those conversations does bring up gender diversity and the trans community. And so, I’ve been able to have a lot of conversations about that in the political world in Texas.” Changing minds by exposing people to the diversity of gender isn’t easy, Gonzalez says, but it can be done. “I’m not going to lie — those have a been a lot of difficult conversations at times,” she said. “But I think one of the best ways to combat homophobia and heterosexism is to use your own story as a tool for justice. So I tell my story, and these colleagues, while some people might have an impression about them, they also wind up being my friends. We work on other issues together. I’m on the agriculture committee. So I get to talk to a lot of conservative members and we care passionately about supporting agriculture in Texas. And we bond on those issues and then they really like me and they hear my story. And well, you know, I think that that they start to at least change their minds a little bit.” Gonzalez tells a story that underscores the there are many ways that work at helping make people connect with gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender — and pansexual — people. “Last session I came onto the floor,” she said. “There were 3000 articles written about me. There were a lot of whispers, ‘Oh, there’s the — they don’t know a lot of language I use — they would go, ‘Oh there’s the gay one.’ And they would whisper. And I could hear it and it would be hurtful at times. But in March — because we started in January — March of 2013, one of the Republican legislators came up to me and put his hand on my shoulder and said, ‘Mary Edna, do you know you’re the same age as my daughter?’ And I said, ‘No sir, I had no idea.’ And he said, ‘Well, on this floor you’re my daughter.’ To build relationships that are grounded in familial ways helps people to understand and overcome a lot of their prejudice, their misunderstanding and their stereotypes.” Listen to the interview with Gonzalez below
This poor woman is a mess! The too tight dresses, the wild hair in her face and bouncing all over the place like a giant drag queen wig... She tries to cross her legs when the cameras come in but they're tree trunks, and her dresses so tight, so short, it looking like they're about to blow apart like to giant hams loaded with TNT. I like her, but can't a friend tell her that her clothes are too tight?
I can totally envision them having candle lit dinners in a dark corner of NYC after long days of work at the ABC headquarters, after which they both fall asleep in each other's arms before David has a chance to tag that tight Cuban ass. I hope they show up hand in hand at Anderson and Andy Cohen's birthday extravaganza at Bedlam!
Or should we just get together and stop paying? Either way, does it really matter? Just electrons.
Let us count all the ways in which "The Princess of North Sudan" is a disaster When it comes to cultural sensitivity, it would be a dramatic understatement to say that Disney has a checkered past. Whether in colonized India (“The Jungle Book”) or the “barbaric” Middle East (“Aladdin”), the animation giant has long denied its characters of color their full humanity. Case in point: The only Disney movie set on the continent of Africa to date, “The Lion King,” didn’t even have any Africans in it, only animals — and yet Disney still managed to inject racial and cultural stereotypes into the film. And so it is that after a smooth eight decades of racist depictions, the studio recently announced the development of a new film, “The Princess of North Sudan,” a story based on actual events that will be adapted for the screen by writer Stephany Folsom, hired earlier this month. From the title alone, this sounds like a promising departure from history, suggesting perhaps a newfound respect for black characters and the African continent as a place populated by, you know, human Africans. Might this princess be different from Disney’s long lineage of lily-white royals? Could the days of an archetypal Snow White in fact be coming to a close? Alas, appearances can be very deceiving, and anyone who looks past the title of the movie quickly discovers this jaw-dropping central detail about Disney’s “first African princess“: She is actually white. She’s not African, either. Nor is she even a princess. She’s just Emily Heaton, of Virginia. Granted, she is adorable, and seven years old; so I hate to say this, but she’s also an entitled brat with a rich, spineless dad. She is the spirit animal for global white supremacy and American imperialist power. And now she’s slated to be immortalized by Disney. As Princess Emily’s dad, Jeremiah Heaton, spoke to the Guardian last summer and explained her path to royalty. One night before bed, Emily, then a lowly commoner, asked her father is she’d ever become a real princess. This question thus faced dear old dad with a “dilemma.” “I didn’t want to break her spirits, so I said ‘yes, absolutely,’” Heaton told the Guardian. “She had such a serious tone. I knew it meant a lot to her.” Because she was six. Emily has probably been raised on patriarchal Disney movies (of which canon she’ll eventually be a part), and her sense of reason and possibility are that of a six-year-old. So Heaton started looking for a kingdom for his daughter to rule, and eventually he found an 800-square-mile tract of North Sudan called Bir Tawil, claimed neither by Sudan nor Egypt, with whom it shares its northern border. With a flag designed by the Heaton clan, Jeremiah flew to Africa and traveled 14 hours by caravan to the largely uninhabited, barren region of Bir Tawil to proudly claim his kingdom. Explained his reasoning to the Washington Post, he reminded everyone that this is “exactly how several other countries, including what became the United States, were historically claimed.” Except, well, that’s not exactly how it was done. And, as the Guardian’s Bim Adewunmi points out, another Disney princess, Pocahontas, neatly sums up the problem with Heaton’s colonialist logic: “You think you own whatever land you land on.” Heaton, though, contends that, unlike the Americas, his “Kingdom of North Sudan” actually is situated on uninhabited land. “Bedouins roam the area; [but] the population is actually zero,” he explains. Then the population isn’t zero! You do understand that Bedouins are people, right? They just don’t live in a way that you recognize. They’re nomadic, just like most of the native peoples before Europeans came to the Americas with their flags to plant. Oh, you stuck a pole in the ground? That totally trumps the Bedouins’ claim to their ancestral land. You’ve really thought this one through. But Heaton explains that the kingdom will be a magnanimous one, a benevolent monarchy. “We’ll help each other out,” is the moral message of the new royals’ to their new neighbors. Just like the Europeans said in America! (At first.) The kingdom’s Indiegogo page (it’s a free market country entirely for sale) describes its princess’ plan as such: “Emily, having learned about hungry children in Africa from her elementary school teacher, stated very clearly, ‘Grow a garden as big as our country to feed people!’” The kingdom sits on one of the most dry and barren places on planet earth; it’s Saharan sand when it’s not mountains. Nobody’s growing nothing there. Stop listening to your seven-year-old daughter’s ideas. She’s seven, for Christ’s sake. Before you claim a kingdom you need to claim a few pages in a book or two. The Indiegogo page advertises all the ways you can buy into the kingdom and feed Africa. Poor fans of postmodern colonialism can get a bumper sticker for $15, while for $50,000 they can continue the tradition of putting wealthy colonialists’ faces on currency. Never mind that Heaton is really into Bitcoin (because of course he is) and the kingdom’s currency will be digital. The Indiegogo page also lists the incipient nation’s proto-cabinet: David G. Marmon is the Secretary of International Relations. Marmon, a well-educated lawyer and world traveler, runs an apparently successful firm that helps churches obtain tax-exempt status. Though much of Marmon’s travel has been for beneficial missionary purposes, he appears to once have been a Reaganite anti-communist, helping “Nicaraguan refugees escaping the Sandinistas” during the 1980s. Marmon’s website describes a man very much concerned with poverty, but then there are also biographical details like this: “I met with the sub-director of the National Guard, the ones behind the death squads—I sat in his office and had tea with him and was his friend.” This enigma will be in charge of relating to other nations. The Surgeon General of the kingdom, Dr. James H. Schrenker, should more accurately be described as the Minister of Medicine—because his medical practice is Christian faith-healing, augmented by a hodgepodge of Eastern religion-sounding stuff like “auras” and “chakras.” He explains in his medical manifesto: “It is the essence of GOD in that it requires Faith; the magic bullet for medicine, because it heals; and the big bang for science, as it explains creation.” Pro tip: Penicillin is also a magic bullet. (Far be it from me to criticize Schrenker’s take on Western medicine, which he denounces as being driven by “capitalist companies,” but something tells me that that disease-stricken regions of Africa need a little more than prayers to Jesus about malarial auras.) All of this is by way of stating the obvious: These are people with little to no interest in Africa as a place that actually exists. Even the adults in the room — as opposed to the literal children, whose whims are elevated to foreign policy directives — are motivated by ideas that are, at the very best, precious and uninformed; and in any case undergirded by centuries of colonial violence, and decades of cultural whitewashing and misappropriation. So of course the people at Disney want to animate it. Still high off its eruption of racial consciousness in 2009’s “The Princess and the Frog” — in which its first-ever black female protagonist spends a good portion of the movie as an amphibian — the studio gobbled up the rights to Heaton’s life story last year. Appropriately, the Internet freaked the fuck out. Heaton told Foreign Policy that his family is “blessed” to be the subject of a Disney film. “In this process we have been able to make Emily a real princess,” he said. “She’s also a Disney princess.” He defended the decision to make the movie, for which he has been compensated handsomely by the entertainment giant, heaping scorn on the “academics” who have protested the valorization of his story. “[M]uch of the criticism has come from what [Heaton] scornfully calls ‘academics,’” Foreign Policy explains. Otherwise known as people who actually think about things and don’t take intellectual direction from seven year olds. Screenwriter Stephany Folsom also responded to the Twitter blitz following her hiring earlier this month. Taking on critics, Folsom assured everyone of her bona fides: “I’ve been to the Sudan. The people there are amazing.” Oh, she’s been to Sudan! And its people are so amazing that she’s writing a screenplay about a place almost wholly devoid of Sudanese people and soon to be overrun with Americans. To her credit, Folsom remarked in another tweet that “colonialism is bullshit.” That tweet has since been deleted. In another deleted tweet, Folsom continued: “There is no planting a flag in Sudan or making a white girl the princess of an African country. That’s gross.” OK, so it’s a movie that isn’t about what its only source material would suggest it is exactly about. Got it. (And I thought Charlie Kaufman wrote crazy screenplays.) I hate to ruin it for everyone but here’s another spoiler: This movie won’t ever be made. Disney may be clumsy and racially clueless, but they’re not commercially suicidal. The story of the princess of North Sudan cannot be told without racism and colonialism, and no amount of sentimental nonsense keeps that from being the case, whether in the Heaton family or in the screenplay. You could salvage the title, though; just make the movie about an actual African princess. It’s a big continent. There has to be someone besides a middle-class white girl around whom to build a movie.

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!
Didn't see thread on this. Since the Olsons won't be returning, I hope they make Michelle (who only exists offscreen in this revival) an eccentric millionairess with a Daddy complex.

One thing that always bothered me is that they had him try on the *actual* bloody gloves during the trial. Why didn't they acquire a brand new pair of the exact same gloves so that the jury could see what those gloves *would have* fit like had they not been soaked in blood & allowed to dry?

To the man at the Eden Prairie AMC theater, It's 3:00 a.m. here in Waconia, MN. Somewhere in this area are two men sleeping the night away, while my pillow gets heavier and heavier with my tears. You will never remember me. But, I will remember you way more than I should ever have to. You were the man who shouted: "Get that kid out of here!" In the dark, like a coward. I'd like to show you THAT kid. He's our Vito. Our ever amazing, beautiful Vito. He's a cancer warrior. Yes. He has some issues. He talks differently. He doesn't talk at all. He uses vocalizations for his excitement and frustration. His excitement is expressed in grunts and shrieks with giggles. He really liked the movie so he shrieked many times. This expression was hard-earned. Before cancer our Vito talked and babbled like any other 11-month-old. He actually was an earlier talker than my other boys. But, cancer took that from him. It made him mute for weeks. Every sound Vito makes is the fruit of intense therapy for nine months' labor. He did cry for a minute when he couldn't drink from his brother's cup. We removed him immediately. He was giggling in the hall. We brought him back in and he giggled through the movie. I guess that was too much. It would be one thing if we kept Vito in the theater when he was crying. But, we didn't. It would be one thing if you told us to leave when he was crying, but he wasn't. You shouted for us to leave when Vito was laughing and giggling. Like other kids in the theater. But my son just laughed differently. I'm sorry that bothered you. No. I lie. I don't care. To say I'm sorry would be acknowledging there was something wrong with him. There's nothing wrong. He expresses himself differently. My son earned his right to be there. He has fought hard for every one of his skills and his life. He's no different than my 2-year-old who was bouncing off the seats. But, I guess that's more normal so he's allowed. When you shouted for me to remove my son, you put me in a tough spot. See, I have a 9-year-old. I suddenly was in a conundrum. What lesson am I going to teach my 9-year-old? If I ignored you, I would teach my son to let people treat his brother like this. So the movie ended. I don't know how. I stood up, my heart pounded and my body shook. See I didn't know who you were because you shouted at us behind the clout of darkness and curtain of cowards. So I just stood and spoke to the stranger in the dark: "To whoever said I should remove my son. This is Vito. I'm sorry he is a little different but he has brain cancer which changed his communication abilities." You didn't say anything. Silence echoed. It's amazing how quiet a theater can be, even with credits playing in the background. Patrons scurried out, not looking at our family, avoiding any eye contact with us. We apparently were branded. You are a coward, sir. You are a coward. You should have come up to me. Met this beautiful miracle. Instead you scurried out. Another man muttered to me, "Well, maybe you shouldn't bring him out." We were in a Disney movie. A DISNEY movie. Kids are to be expected there. Kids make noise. I understand, I've gone to adult movies with screaming kids. But, there's an expectation kids will be at a Disney movie, on a Saturday. Every single person I saw leave, left with children by their side. We taught those children that being different is not accepted. We taught those children that if we don't like someone, just embarrass them until they leave with their head low, ashamed. We taught those children that disabilities are something to be ashamed of. We taught those children that you can belittle someone, make them feel inferior. We taught those children to hide, hide behind closed doors, so no one sees their differences. We taught those children discrimination. We taught those children that they can tease and belittle my son on the playground because we as adults did it at a movie theater. Vito is beating brain cancer at 20 months. This is an amazing accomplishment. But it has come with great costs. Vito ha

This thread is for discussing the various douchelike aspects of Anderson Cooper. Please use one of the other threads if you want to engage in a boyfriend flame war. Like many people, I have been saddened by Anderson's descent from serious journalist to a giggling, spray-tan demonstrating, child beauty pageant obsessed, boyfriend hiding, Kathy Griffin and Kelly Ripa- behagged douche. What do you think caused Anderson to pursue this douche lifestyle? He is such a joke nowadays. Is this some kind of revenge against his mother and her good taste and breeding?

There's a watch forum I like to visit and look at pictures of things I will never own. I made the mistake of asking how so many people can afford to buy several multi-thousand dollar watches in a number of months and was immediately dog piled, flamed and pilloried. Apparently asking how Americans can afford to spend so much money is tantamount to communism, being a Socialist and wanting Obama to take all their stuff. So where do people get so much money to spend so freely?

Roger becoming pussy whipped seemed out of character. Peggy and Stan getting together was too obvious. Fuck you Weiner. Call Vince Gilligan next time you want a great series finale.
This chick is obsessed with being "sexy". I guess growing up without a father she has a psychological needs to attract a man. She is on "Live With Kelly & Michael" dressed in a long hot pink gown with the front cut into a miniskirt to expose her legs and a plunging neckline highlighting her pendulous boobs. A total red carpet look. Now being a morning show would be one thing, but the are in Disneyland with an audience of families.

My partner and I will be spending the bulk of the summer in Berlin, where he will be working. We'll be in Dahlem in southwest Berlin. We have easy access to the U-Bahn, but no car. We've been once before for a few days and saw the Pergamon, Holocaust memorial and the Brandenburg gate. We love to eat out and see museums and other cultural attractions. He's a huge classical music fan while I'm a huge Bowie fan. I'm wondering if there's any place that commemorates the gay community's loss during the war?

Are you watching The Bachelorette? This week two of the male contestants fall in love with each other in the shower. There is about to be a major shocker on the show and it involves a gay relationship between two male contestants! “It’s absolutely insane. I never thought that I’d meet somebody like that,” Clint says. “Falling in love with a man never crossed my mind.” Clint then says he is “100%” in love with JJ and that they have “grown very close to each other in the shower.” He also admits that Kaitlyn is not the right girl for him. “I love JJ, so I need the rose tonight,” he adds.

A high-profile study that purported to show that gay people could change skeptics' minds about same-sex marriage by talking to them for about 20 minutes on their doorsteps was retracted Thursday by the journal Science. The move comes 10 days after one of the study's authors, Donald Green, a political science professor at Columbia University, accused the other of falsifying the data at the heart of the study. Michael LaCour, the UCLA political science graduate student now in the hot seat, has acknowledged some wrongdoing but says he can defend his actions. However, the editors of Science decided Thursday to move forward with a retraction, citing LaCour's misrepresentations and false statements and his inability to produce his data.
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.

Bruce Jenner lands his first major magazine cover as a woman! His fame whore daughters (especially Kim K.) must be jealous as hell! "Bruce Jenner Lands First Post-Transition Cover Shoot With Vanity Fair" Bruce Jenner has landed an upcoming cover for Vanity Fair, the first print photo shoot and interview since the former Olympian revealed plans to transition from male to female. People magazine reports that Annie Leibovitz will shoot Jenner as a woman — a first for a celebrity athlete who has posed for his share of magazine covers over the years, from Sports Illustrated to GQ. Reps for Vanity Fair, Liebovitz, and Jenner have not yet responded to requests for comment. Jenner’s Vanity Fair pictorial is set to hit stands this summer. During a recent Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce special, taped earlier this year, Jenner told stepdaughter Khloé Kardashian he was planning to fully transition "probably in the spring." Jenner will chronicle his new life as a woman in an eight-part docuseries premiering in July on E! If Jenner indeed reveals himself as female for the first time, it could net record-breaking newsstand sales for the Conde Nast title — whose best-selling cover, in September 2005, featured Jennifer Aniston‘s first interview after separating from Brad Pitt. Leibovitz, a veteran photographer, most recently photographed the Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast for Vanity Fair’s June cover and has chronicled the world’s biggest celebrities over her 40-plus year career, including Michael Jackson, George Clooney, Queen Elizabeth II, Johnny Depp, and Lady Gaga.
I'm really confused about whether he is truly trans. He said he was attracted to women as a man and he's not sure that will change when he fully transitions. He says he's not gay. But as Kim pointed out to him that if he still likes women when he transitions that WOULD make him gay. Then he said he's not sure what will happen and that the point is just to transition first. He's not planning on having any relationships. They also mentioned that they all knew he liked to dress up as a woman. They've know for years. He still seems to be confused which is not what I seen from other stories about those who have transitioned. The other stories they knew they were the opposite sex in the "wrong" body and they were clear on who they were attracted to. So I think either he's just a cross dressing hetero male who has gotten confused by all the trans talk in the media or he's attracted to men but being attracted to them as a man is anathema to him. Once he transitions he can then feel all right in his attraction to men because he will be a women. All I know is that he's still not telling the whole truth. I feel there are still some things he hasn't admitted to himself.
It only made $9.7 million. Pitch Perfect 2 is killing it and remains number 1. Who would have thought Rebel Wilson would be a bigger movie star than George Clooney??
Has she poked her head out spouting her stupidity in any threads? Or is she quite while mourning her "great loss"?
What better way to mark the culmination of a year of intensive training than by scurrying to the top of a 21-foot-tall oil-slicked obelisk with your nearly-naked peers? For the roughly 1,000 freshman at the U.S. Naval Academy, wrapping up the year by climbing the Herdon Monument is a rite of passage. Some traditions should never be broken. Pics at link:

Thu May 28, 2015 Washington (CNN) Federal officials have indicted former House Speaker Dennis Hastert for lying to the FBI and evading taxes as he sought to pay off the subject to "cover up past misconduct." The indictment was unsealed in the District Court of Northern Illinois on Thursday. The Justice Department alleges that Hastert made large withdrawals after he agreed to pay an unnamed subject $3.5 million. The indictment does not explain precisely what the "past misconduct" is, but instead details at length various withdrawals and financial transactions he made with the unidentified subject. The payments occurred over a period of years beginning in 2010 and ending in 2014. Hastert served as House speaker from 1999 until 2006, when Democrats retook the House. Before serving in Congress he was a high school teacher and coach in Yorkville, Illinois.
Why are they so racist on that site? I am serious.
Michael Jackson's iconic home hits the market at 100 million dollars! Check out the photo gallery. At first, I'm like, "it's so beautiful!" However, as you scroll through the pictures of the inside of the home and the details, it starts to look totally tacky. What do we think, "tasteful friends?"
For some reason the "scandal" thread got closed down. For those fans posting on the old thread, Seann William Scott just starred in a direct-to-video movie called JUST BEFORE I GO. It looks awful and it got bad reviews, but I plan to watch it because I've always been a supporter of this hottie. There's also a GOON sequel coming out. For those he said he's a bad actor who never made a good movie, lighten up! He's a genius at comic delivery and most actors (or people) as hot as him aren't willing to make such asses of themselves so brilliantly for our enjoyment. The following movies are GREAT: AMERICAN WEDDING AMERICAN REUNION ROLE MODELS DUDE, WHERE'S MY CAR? THE GOON BALLS OUT: GARY THE TENNIS COACH OLD SCHOOL has its moments and FINAL DESTINATION is an enduring legacy, for better or for worse.
Lets continue singing the praises of the hunky Brian Sims.
Okay, she must have connections, right? How did she manage to come back after decades away and at nearly 80 years old? Even 20 year olds know who she is now thanks to her Netflix show and showing up to award shows like the Grammys and the Oscars, and after parties, decked out in a tight fitting green getup. Howard Stern even said he'd still bang her. She's back to doing exercise videos, this time for seniors. She had officially stated that she had retired back in the 90s. She did a couple of things in the 2000s, but nothing significant. She in "The Butler," playing Nancy Reagan, and has a few more films coming up. The media is up her ass, reporting on her all the time, with her giving juicy statements. She's been open about her plastic surgery. She's becoming somewhat of a media whore, but why is the media so interested? I know she comes from a famous family, but can they get her jobs and a high profile like she's getting again now? She shed seven years off her age in her new television series. She looks great. The linked photo is from February.
and she looks ridiculous. Her face looks like the guy's on "Drag Race".
This is a lot of re-tread and not much we haven't already heard on DL, but I spoke with my insider source this weekend for gossip (this person is 100% reliable and I've know him for over twenty years) and I can unequivocally confirm a couple things: - George Clooney has an apartment in NYC that he uses exclusively used for entertaining male escorts. When the hustler arrives, Clooney never acknowledges that he is actually Clooney and most of the times says something like, "Oh, I get all the time." However, both parties are well aware and it's just not spoken out loud. The escorts/hustlers are required to sign a full NDA. Fuck, get paid, then they're whisked away in a black car. - James Van Der Beek never had an affair with John Wesley Shipp the guy who played his dad, but the latter is definitely gay (and poz). Van Der Beek is straight. - Bradley Cooper = totally and completely gay. I'll get more info during the next couple days. In the meantime, let's get some more dirt and post it here.
And i mean they are deeply in closet. Also, why do we tolerate it?
[italic]One of many articles[/italic] Men who have not been circumcised typically have larger penises than men who have been circumcised. What is the reason for this? Circumcision is a surgical process usually performed when the male is in his infancy. It removes the foreskin from his penis. It is a traumatic process for the infant and some researchers believe that it creates deep-based psychological fears, as the male is so young. When the foreskin is surgically removed it creates scarring and scar tissue. If a circumcised male looks at his penis he can usually see the scarring between the shaft of the penis where it meets the corona (the corona is at the base or back of the head of the penis). The scarring is usually visible because the skin will have a different color than the rest of the penis. This scarring damages the tissues in this area of the penis and will impede penis length on erection. Because this is done in infancy (usually) and before puberty, this will affect the size of the penis when it gets its growth spurt during adolescence. An Australian scientific study measured 158 men for penis length. They compared circumcised and uncircumcised men. They found that the average penis length in circumcised men was 5% less than non-circumcised men. This, of course, is the average. Some men lost less and some men lost more of their size. It's also worth noting the research of Dr. John Taylor who revealed that 51% of an infant's penile skin is removed with circumcision. But affecting penis size isn't the only problem with circumcision. The foreskin is rich in sensory nerve endings and is one of the main areas of the penis that increases a man's sexual pleasure. When it is removed this decreases the sexual pleasure a man will feel during intercourse. The foreskin is also rich in tactile nerve endings, like those found in the fingertips that can perceive very fine sensations through feeling. With removal of the foreskin, the male loses this very fine touch sensation in his penis. This is important because he won't be able to "feel" the vagina with his penis. The scarring of the penis cannot be reversed, unfortunately, but there are methods of natural penis enlargement that can help increase a man's size if he was robbed of it through this surgical procedure.
Commence the hate.
I just read on another thread where this guy fell in love with his rapist. Is this even possible? I find it really hard to believe.
Wants Diane's job.
He forgot the handbag.
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.
He is leaning Days/DOOL but we can certainly continue discussing him and Guy Wilson (Strudel) and Chandler Massey until the sands run through the hourglass. Also can we talk about non-whites, like Freddie, playing white characters or is this not the right forum for it?
This is one place where you can tell friends all about, because what's typed in the DL stays in the DL.
A lot of DL people think he was too "girly"? But there are so many hot videos that are instant hardons . . .
ABC’s David Muir Continues to Trump NBC’s Lester Holt In Winning Advertisers’ Crowd March 31, 2015 | 12:27PM PT, Brian Steinberg NBC’s Lester Holt may be the most-watched evening-news anchor in the United States, but for advertisers, ABC’s David Muir is emerging as a favorite. Muir’s “World News Tonight” broadcast on ABC has won more of the viewers advertisers covet for three consecutive weeks, a situation that threatens to undermine “NBC Nightly News” while that program is in transition. “World News” attracted an average of 2,145,000 viewers between the ages of 25 and 54, the viewers most desired by sponsors fo news programs, for the five days between March 23 and March 27, according to data from Nielsen. “Nightly News,” meanwhile, attracted an average of 2,044,000, while CBS’s “CBS Evening News” won an average of 1,478,000. The dynamics suggest that ABC is making notable incursions on NBC’s franchise. Holt remains a steady presence at NBC, but has lost some viewers in the absence of Brian Williams, who has been placed on a six-month suspension following the disclosure that he falsified an account of a 2003 reporting trip in Iraq. Holt is filling in while NBC investigates Williams’ behavior, and is considered to be a candidate to keep the seat should NBCUniversal decide Williams ought not to return. ABC’s 25-to-54 audience rose 10% over the previous five-day period, while NBC’s rose 5.6%, according to Nielsen. NBC’s numbers include views of a wee-hours rebroadcast across ten local stations owned by Gannett that NBC arranged to start about two months ago. Several advertisers asked to be pulled from those airings, according to a person familiar with the situation, which took place on the local stations between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. The sponsors discovered the practice in recent days after ABC brought it to light, and objected to the late-night views counting as part of their agreements with the network. NBC has agreed to pull national ads from those broadcasts, the person confirmed. What effect that may have on next week’s ratings, if any, remains to be seen. The advertiser pushback against NBC was previously reported by The Wall Street Journal. To be sure, NBC’s Holt continues to be seen by more people than ABC’s Muir. “NBC Nightly News” attracted an average of 8,709,000 viewers during the five-day period, marking a rise of 2.2% over the week-earlier period. ABC’s “World News” lured an average of 8,597,000, representing an 8% rise. CBS’ “Evening News” captured an average of 6,739,000, Nielsen said. The CBS broadcast was disrupted on two nights by NCAA basketball broadcasts in Western states.
What do you suppose it was like when the reigning 100% red-blooded he-man heart-throb of the day was first introduced to the most beautiful and desired songstress of the era? What words did he use to let her know at once she was dealing with a true lady-killer?

I know they were a put together boy band but I heard a song tonight at the end of Grace and Frankie and realized they were pretty damn good. Much better than a lot of the shit put out today. Any fans out there?
I don't have any friends at the moment, but live with my family and my family members keep me company. But I yearn to have friends my own age, maybe just 2 or 3. One really close friend and two who I keep a bit of distance from but who I still talk to. It's going to be a couple of months before I'm going to start putting in my resume. So in the meantime, I try to imagine about weird scenarios involving people I used to know that involves us socializing. Sad but a good way to feel like I have friends.
Unforgiving and exploitative media and political operatives will milk Bernie Sanders’ old misogynist essay Bernie Sanders is an idealist with good sound policies for America. Millions of Americans were just learning about what he stands for. They were learning that he is and has always been the champion of the poor and the middle-class. When anti-corporatism wasn’t vogue, he was an anti-corporatist. Inasmuch as Bernie Sanders has not been registering as a substantial threat in the polls, as more Americans pay attention, his message was sure to resonate. Why? Because Americans are still hurting and he is best able to encapsulate that pain into policy he has been advocating for decades. Unfortunately going forward his message will go unheard by those who need it most. Why? Because of an essay he wrote decades ago. Tim Murphy published the article “How Bernie Sanders Learned to be a Real Politician” in Mother Jones a few days ago. The article included an image of a rather misogynistic essay written by Bernie Sanders in 1972 for the alternative newspaper Vermont Freeman. The content of the essay was not mentioned in the article. This was clearly a hit job from the centrist (read corporatist) side of the Democratic Party. (see scans linked) The reality is that inasmuch as this was a soft hit job, it is important. Had Bernie Sanders become the nominee, this would have been milked for all that it is worth. It is not an overreaction to state that this essay pretty much makes the Bernie Sanders candidacy toast. It is a sad reality that it will overtake his message not for the faithful but for those who most need to hear his message. The Plutocracy’s corporatist media cannot allow a Democratic Socialist message to take hold. Those who support Bernie Sanders need to move on. There are other liberals and progressives who have the ability to challenge Hillary Clinton. They need to be encouraged to get into the race. Even Hillary Clinton supporters should want that for if she fails, who will be the real progressive alternative that is needed?

The up-and-coming actor is mostly known for his role in the long-running British soap EastEnders British actor Ben Hardy has reportedly landed a key role in Bryan Singer’s upcoming movie X-Men: Apocalypse. Hardy’s part in the comic-book film sequel hasn’t yet been disclosed but the Wrap reports it will be “important.” Fans of British dramas will recognize Hardy as Peter Beale from long-running BBC soap opera EastEnders. He’ll be joining X-Men regulars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult.
You know, it’s so ironic — I wanted to build kind of a community center in the gateway to Hell’s Kitchen, which in 2008–2009 was already a gay place and now it’s even gayer. Very close to Broadway. We decided there’d be so many different ways to give back to the community. We show gay artists there. For gay performers, we have let this cabaret club go on for three and a half years. And you don’t make money when you let drag queens in on Tuesday night and 30 people drink at $10 a drink and you have to pay five people to watch over the place. You don’t make money … My only point is, this has not been a profitable venture. Gays are cheap. They’re frugal; gays are frugal. Let me retract that … gays are entitled … Do you know how challenging it is to make a penny off a gay person? I’m gay, I don’t pay cover. I’m gay, where’s my comp drink? No, I’m being serious! The Out NYC has not shown a profit yet …” — Ian Reisner attempting to explain to New York magazine why he and business (and former romantic) partner Mati Weiderpass recently hosted an event for antigay presidential candidate Ted Cruz, but perhaps managing to outrage the community even more, if that’s possible
And if so, what should the proper punishment be?
Okay granted I am not from the south but is it typical for late forties and early fifties men to social friends with 20-30 somethings? Case #1 Thomas Ravenel who is 51 years old, been indicted for selling cocaine and forced to step down as state treasurer now wants to run for congress as a "Libertarian"." Episode two showed a picture of his father with a very large confederate flag draped across the steps of the state capitol. Racist much? Case #2 Whitney Sudler Smith - 41 year old "film maker" who lives with his mother. The rest of the cast seem in the late 20's to early 30's. Thomas seems to think he is quite the stud man about town....given he is handsome and rich he is also racist and vile.

I've tried it all and getting sucked stays at the top of all the sex acts for me. Getting deep throated especially feels so phenomenal.

Yes, he's gay. That's not what this is about. DLers, what plastic surgery procedures has he had, judging from this comparison pic?
I like her, but let's be honest. Aside from her looks and her bad girl image, not much else explains why she managed to have so much success since 2005/2006. There had to be so many other women--others with more talent--waiting to get a recording deal with Def Jam records in the mid 00s. I'm guessing Jay Z had her sucking his dick. Does anyone here have any information on her? Does anyone here know how she managed to get a record deal? And is it true they were planning on shelving her until Umbrella became a huge hit?
Because a hairy chest is still a thing of beauty...
So I finally got around to seeing two of the John Hughes teen film classics that '80s teens always rave about (Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles), and while entertaining, I was surprised at the strain of casual homophobia prevalent throughout the films. Use of words fag, queer or gay by the main characters are supposed to be funny har-har gags.. I guess that must have been a sign of the times. Mean-spirited homophobic humor definitely was not so common or tolerated in teen movies in the 00s and 10s. Was it your experience in the '80s that anti-gay attitudes and humor was the norm? Did you go to high school in that era and was this attitude common? The '80s seemed like a mean-spirited time for gay people, or really anybody who was "different." It seems like it wasn't until the late '90s that attitudes about gay people (amongst teens at least) started to change.
"Her comeback this year has been nice, and her song "Body Party" is 1 of the biggest gay hits of the year."

I love my Boo. Never want to hurt him. Also want to suck on some big knobs, gobble down some stranger cum. I don't want to cheat but if it's just a dick and not a person it's hardly cheating, yes? I figure it's all good if it's just me and a cock and no awkward hellos. Just sucking like the whore I am through a hole seems better than looking someone in the eye.
Cissy Houston broke her silence regarding the condition of her granddaughter Wednesday, Bobbi Kristina Brown, saying there is "not a great deal of hope" for recovery. Houston, 81, mother to Whitney Houston and grandmother to Brown, gave an exclusive interview with New York's WBLS. She reiterated that Brown, 22, had been moved to a rehabilitation facility and said though recovery seems unlikely, the family has been praying. "I don't pray like that. I give it to God one time, because I know he's able, and I cannot change a thing," Houston explained. "So I'm asking everyone to pray to the Lord, who we know can do something about it." Earlier this week, a source close to the Browns told PEOPLE that some family members wanted to move her out of the hospital and into the rehab facility earlier, but her father, Bobby Brown, held off on the decision. In the WBLS interview, Houston said she had put her faith in God. "If he works a miracle, thank God," she said. "If it happens the other way, I'm all right."

a.k.a FLOPS, Reuben Studdard, Fantasia, the gray haired guy (can't remember his name) who else?
From worst to best. Not so much by their subsequent commercial success, just how good they are. 11. Lee DeWyze. He's cute and can more or less carry a tune, but doesn't seem particularly inspired. Should not have won. Has faded faster than a Bravo reality tv star. 10. Scotty Mcreery. He's ok. Barely distinguishable from the two or three who won before him. 9. Kris Allen. Really not that bad, although I'm not sure I see an appeal outside suburban coffeehouses. One half-decent Kanye West cover will not carry a career. 8. Ruben Studdard. So unbelievably dull, if he'd been around in the 80s he'd have fallen far behind a much better group of soul crooners (Luther, Peabo, James Ingram, etc.). I do have soft spot for him, though, for having sung Superstar. 7. Fantasia. Can't say I ever "got" her. I thought Jennifer Hudson and Diana DeGarmo were both much better. And what a nails-on-the-chalkboard voice! Ugh. But I'll give her points for being unique. 6. Jordin Sparks. Can't say I remember too much about her, but she strikes me as someone who should be cranking out anonymous gay disco anthems (a la Cascada or Deborah Cox) and not trying to rule Billboard. 5. Taylor Hicks. Often and mercilessly mocked, but I think it's more like he's in the wrong genre. He's a genuine blues guy in a way that few white guys can pull off, but he will never be a pop star. 4. Carrie Underwood. Strong pipes, no doubt, although I wish she didn't look exactly like 50 other country blondes. Great singer, I guess. Zero personality. 3. David Cook. Wildly underrated. Love the smoky voice. Definitely one who I hope can at some point achieve the commercial recognition he deserves. 2. Phillip Phillips. Dumb name, hugely talented. That Home song is good but starting to get irritating. 1. Kelly Clarkson. The first Idol and still far and away the best. A truly stunning talent. I would put her up against anyone (Celine, Mariah, Babs, Whitney, etc.) as the greatest pop singer ever.
Inspired by the Dennis Hastert story....how often do you think celebs, polticians, athletes, etc. get blackmailed? Anyone who is wealthy and has an image to maintain is probably a huge target for that sort of thing.
Together we win. I can see how.
What a goddamned waste. "Washington farmers are dumping unprofitable apples" Record crop and ports dispute prompt Washington farmers to dump $100 million worth of apples SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- A record crop of apples, coupled with the West Coast port slowdown earlier this year, is taking a toll on Washington apple growers. Nearly $100 million worth of apples that cannot be sold have been dumped into fields across central Washington, the nation's most productive apple region. The apples are being left to rot and compost in the hot sun, an unusual occurrence for an industry that has found ways to market ever-growing crops. "If we wouldn't have had the port slowdown, we wouldn't have needed this," Todd Fryhover, president of the Washington Apple Commission in Wenatchee, said of the dumping. He estimated that apple exporters lost at least three weeks of their season because of labor problems at West Coast ports. Along with a record supply of apples, that created surpluses that could not be shipped profitably to markets or processors, Fryhover said. "It is unusual," Fryhover said. The Washington State Tree Fruit Association estimated $95 million in lost sales because of apples that could not ship, a figure Fryhover considers low. Washington is by far the nation's largest producer of apples, a crop worth about $2 billion a year to the state's farmers. The 2014 crop totaled a record 150 million boxes, which weigh about 40 pounds each. About a third of the apples each year are exported to more than 60 countries. The labor dispute that hobbled international trade through West Coast seaports earlier this year didn't officially end until last week, when the union representing dockworkers announced its members had ratified a five-year contract. Union leaders had reached a tentative deal in February with the companies that own massive oceangoing ships that bring cargo to and from ports and operate the terminals where that cargo is loaded and unloaded. Ports from San Diego to Seattle were all but shut down several months ago as the two sides haggled. Companies that accused workers of coordinated slowdowns decided to cut their shifts, shuttering ports on nights and weekends. The tit-for-tat led to long lines of ships queueing outside of harbors, waiting for space at the docks. Meanwhile, U.S. exporters complained that their goods — including apples — were stuck on the docks as foreign competitors filled orders that should be theirs. The ports dispute created numerous problems for farmers. A big issue is that apples loaded into unrefrigerated containers sat on docks for weeks waiting to be loaded on a ship, Fryhover said. "It is a perishable crop," he said.
Just what proportion of them are there because of a physical attraction to adolescent boys? I'm guessing it is more than we would suppose. And are they all going to come under scrutiny now because if the scale of the Hastert? Thinking back to some of mine, I wonder now why were they doing this? It was either uncompensated or poorly so and full of lots of frustration and anger. My Boy Scout troop leader and my 7th grade PE teacher ..

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.
New study says they can be bad for your health. "Study: Tattoos Can Cause Serious, Long-Term, Adverse Reactions" Whether it’s a skull, cross, rose, or mom’s name in a thorn bush wrapped around the bicep, about one quarter of American adults have a tattoo. But a new study says about one out of every 10 inkers does not anticipate something that can come along with them: a severe, ongoing skin reaction. In the just-published NYU Langone Medical Center research that studied tattoo-clad New Yorkers, those who reacted to tattoos experienced a rash, itching or swelling that lasted anywhere from four months to several years, with the longest-lasting complications stemming from ink shades of red and black. “While we know infections are a risk of tattoos and can be dependent on tattoo parlor practices, a lot of the complications in our study — and that I have seen in my patients — do not have to do with the tattoo artist or parlor practices, but rather the qualities of ink and how the body’s immune system responds to it,” Marie C. Leger, MD, PhD, study lead and Assistant Professor at the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology, tells Yahoo Health. The 300 respondents ranged in age from 18 to 69, with most having no more than five tattoos — and 67 percent of studied tattoos were on the arms. “We were rather alarmed at the high rate of reported chronic complications tied to getting a tattoo. Given the growing popularity of tattoos, physicians, public health officials and consumers need to be aware of the risks involved,” added Leger. While less than a third of the affected study participants saw a doctor for the reaction, the majority returned to the tattoo parlor to complain or ask for guidance. “Tattoo artists are ‘first responders’ when people have problems,” says Leger, who adds that a planned follow-up study will examine what kind of reactions artists see most frequently, and how clients are directed, in an effort to get people to the right place for help. Experts are not surprised by the news. “While tattoos are popular among Americans, there is still little to no regulation of what exactly is being injected into the skin,” says Jeremy A. Brauer, MD, dermatologist and Director of Clinical Research at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, where he has seen patients with tattoo reactions — most often to red ink. The majority of patients have allergic contact dermatitis, which is marked by redness, swelling and itching in the area of the tattoo." Thank goodness I skipped this stupid trend.
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?
If you could have been born in any country OTHER than the one you were born in, which would it be? I'm American, but I wish I had been born in France. I love the language, I love the food, I love the cities, and I love the scenery. To have been immersed in that culture from birth, would have been amazing. They have a right to be stuck up, because their country is wonderful, and they know it.
While it can be vastly entertaining to watch the gaylings get all screetchy and hysterical when the THEATRE GOSSIP Threads inevitably turn to discussions of FOLLIES - it also gets so tiring to hear these children rant against something that they know nothing about. Let's discuss the incomparable FOLLIES here in this thread: backstage stories, comparisons of performances, videos and pictures, anecdotes and analysis - of one of musical theatre's greatest achievements. I suspect we'll hit 600 quickly, to be followed by #2, #3 ... ad infinitum!
If anyone is interesting in picking out the right scent or would like to know the proper regimen to maintain a particular kind of scent vibe, ask me. Some hints: 1. Consider the age of the person you're pursuing and what scents were most popular when they were coming into their earliest sexual awareness. Those scent memories will be very vivid and associated with those feelings. 2. Drink green tea and eat parsley for inside out scent-ual radiance. Remember that smell issues are often bacterial related (you can actually catch smell; propagate someone else's bacterial colonies that emit a particular kind of smell). Apply yogurt with live-active cultures to the problem area, external and internal. 3. The fragrance notes that most mimic clean, male skin: Vetiver, white amber, Mysore Sandalwood and cardamom and nutmeg (clean, male sweat). Most men are anosmic to musks except, interestingly, gay men. They are able to recognize musk exuded by males in the same way straight women can. Men are highly turned on by lavender and pumpkin pie notes; lavender actually increases blood supply because of high level of terpenes which relax, while allowing for better vascular flow. Pumpkin pie can be a cultural association thing and comforting because of that but realize because it's a fatty fragrance note, the spice notes accompanying it dispel more intensely, yet evenly and spice notes are sexy. 4. If you want to be playful about it, you can apply more classically femme-centric notes, like Gardenia, tuberose and lily of the valley. Realize they will smell differently on male skin. Fragrances don't have genders and different cultures associate different notes traditionally with different genders, anyhow. For instance, in The West, rose notes are often viewed as highly feminine, while they are almost exclusively associated with masculinity in The Middle East. 5. Never over-apply unless you really are going for 18th Century rent-boy appeal. Parfums are strongest, one drop across the collar. The heaviest, spice notes often sing in high concentrations. Eau de Parfums are slightly lighter and less, long lasting and fattier florals fare best in this form. EDT and Colognes are best for dispersing woods and citruses but last for the least amount of time before re-application. Suggestions, a mix of low and high priced brands but all are exceptional, quality blends: Sporty and low-key: Citruses, lime, Soft woods and grasses, spikenard, sandalwood, vetiver. - "Moroccan Myrrh, formerly Nomad" of Crabtree & Evelyn - "No. 6" Caswell-Massey - "Eau de Marveilles" Hermes - "L'Antimatiere" by Les Nez - "Stetson" - "Inis" Fragrances of Ireland - "Bay Rum" Royhall - "West Indian Lime" Crabtree & Evelyn Artsy: - "Voleur des Roses" L'artisan Parfumeur - "Opium" original one, by YSL - "Old Spice" original - "Gris Clair" Serge Lutens - "Imari" Avon Boardroom: Intense woods and musks, few spices - "Polo Black" Ralph Lauren - "Jockey Club" Caswell-Massey - "Old Windsor; heritage collection" Crabtree & Evelyn - "Invictus" Paco Rabbane - "Greenbriar" Caswell-Massey - "Bois des Isles" Chanel - "Nuit de Noel" Caron All-out dandy: - "Serge Noire" Serge Lutens - "Black Absinthe" Crabtree & Evelyn - "Five O'Clock Gingembre" Serge Lutens - "Artisan" John Varvatos - "4711" Muelhens Any questions, ask and I'll answer thm.

Recently watched an interview she gave to the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Wonderful woman, and she's not afraid to look her age. (She looks good). But I get the sense that she's not interested in acting anymore. She's not fond of most current television. She would rather advocate for mental health. But there has to be one real good role out there for her, preferably in a motion picture. Something to give her a second Oscar.

Saturday, May 23rd, as they were returning from an evening with friends, one of David Rey's friends was assaulted by three men, who also shouted homophobic slurs. Still reeling from the incident, and tired of dealing with homophobia, he decided to tell us what happened- Last Saturday night, with ten friends, we watched the Eurovision song contest over at a buddy's place, as is now our habit every year. We had a great time together and when we said goodbye to our friends, in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, 25 meters from the Simplon metro station, some of us went to take the subway, some did not . In the end, we were five taking the subway, in small groups, some dragged on more than others at the time to say goodbye. I was with my boyfriend, going down the stairs, two friends in front of us and behind, when I started hearing phrases and words directed at me, including a "dirty fag. " comment. These are phrases and words that we hear too often when you are gay. I decided to act as if I hadn't heard anything, and I continued my discussion. I think we all acted as if nothing had happened. But now, Saturday night, pretending to be deaf to the slurs was not enough. When I turned around to see what was happening, I saw my friend who was walking a few meters behind us, struggling with three... (continues at link, in French))

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.
Oprah Winfrey has caused a stir among atheists by suggesting that non-believers cannot experience “awe” and “wonder”. In an interview with American swimmer Diana Nyad on her show Soul to Soul, Winfrey questioned her guest about whether she could claim she was an “atheist in awe”. Winfrey asked Nyad: “You told our producers you’re not a God person, but you’re deeply in awe?” Nyad replied: “Yeah, I’m not a God person. I’m an atheist", prompting Winfrey to question: “But you’re in awe?” Nyad said: “I don’t understand why anyone would find a contradiction in that. "I can stand at the beach’s edge with the most devout Christian, J ew, Buddhist and weep at the beauty of this universe, and be moved by all of humanity. "So to me, my definition of God is humanity, and is the love of humanity.” Winfrey, who has spoken about her Christian faith on television before, replied by telling Nyad that her beliefs did not fit with traditional atheism. “Well I don’t call you an atheist then. I think if you believe in the awe and the wonder, and the mystery, then that is what God is. That is what God is. It’s not the bearded guy in the sky,” she said. Nyad continued: “It’s not bearded, but there is an inference with God that there is a presence, that there is either a creator or an overseer. I don’t criticise anybody because we will never know, we will never know until our last breath. “Just for me, I’m an atheist who’s in awe”. Continuing to press the point, Winfrey said: “So do you consider yourself a spiritual person, even as an atheist?” Nyad replied: “I do, I don’t think there’s any contradictions in those terms. I think you can be an atheist who doesn’t believe in an overarching being who created all of this and sees over it. “But there’s spirituality because we human beings, we animals, we plants and maybe even the ocean and the stars, we all live with something that is cherished and we feel the treasure of it.”

I ever, ever do, unless they're ridiculously oversized (like Christina Hendricks's or Dolly Parton's). Of the major female movie stars working today, I doubt I could tell you offhand who had bigger breasts and who had smaller breasts.

Some of those Nifty stories have funny misuse of words.

You'll enjoy the replies to this on Free Republic... "IMO this spells electoral death for the Republican Party. They have been attracting middle-to-lower income voters since the late 70’s by appealing to them on moral issues. If they are taken off the table these voters have absolutely no reason to not go back to the Democrats, who espouse the redistributive economics that these voters really prefer. All of the little old Catholic ladies in Pittsburgh that vote Pro Life come to mind."

We know what 10% of you (according to Kinsey) are thinking, and yes ... they will be auditioning for some new employees before shooting. If you've got abs and baby oil ... get ready.
Definitions for "duggar" had been spreading online even before Savage's suggestion. On Sunday, the word "duggary" was added to the crowdsourced Urban Dictionary, where it was defined as "the act of fondling young girls while they sleep. To be a duggar." Urban Dictionary lists as examples: "He was arrested for two counts of duggary. They really should put sick duggars like this on the sex offender registry."

I'm a black guy and I had a date with another black guy yesterday. He was hot and a generally nice guy but he kept making racist jokes about a group of Indian guys near us. This is a huge turn off for me and I made it very clear that I'm not one who tolerates racist humor. He texted me this morning wanting to hang out again but I told him It wouldn't work because the series racist jokes. I'm 34 and never had that experience on a date. Would you agree to a second date in spite of the jokes? And before anyone asks, yes I do have a sense of humor but if you're going to mix race and humor you've gotta be smart about 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.
I'd love to hear some of our own DL fiscally conservatives answer this...

Dean Potter, one of the generation’s top rock climbers and charismatic personalities, was one of two men killed in a BASE-jumping accident at Yosemite National Park in California on Saturday. Potter, 43, and the other man, Graham Hunt, 29, leapt near dusk off Taft Point, a promontory about 3,000 feet above the floor of Yosemite Valley, not far from the iconic granite masses of El Capitan and Half Dome. Flying in wingsuits, they tried to clear a notch in the granite cliffs but instead smashed into the rocks in quick succession. Neither of the men pulled a parachute. Rescue parties began searching late Saturday, and the bodies were spotted by helicopter Sunday morning and retrieved early in the afternoon, said Mike Gauthier, Yosemite’s chief of staff. Continue reading the main story Related Coverage “It’s tremendously sad,” said Gauthier, an occasional climbing partner of Potter, who lived in Yosemite. “Dean was part of this community and had such an impact on climbing. He was a luminary and in the pantheon of climbing gods.” BASE jumping, which is essentially parachuting from a fixed structure or cliff, is illegal in the national parks, and Yosemite officials have tried to curtail the practice. But Potter fought and flouted the rules for many years. Sinewy and strong at 6 feet 5 inches and 180 pounds, with dark hair often at shoulder length, Potter stood out for his looks and audacious achievements. He was a prosthelytizer for climbing, BASE jumping and living free. “Part of me says it’s kind of crazy to think you can fly your human body,” Potter told The New York Times in 2008. “Another part of me thinks all of us have had the dream that we can fly. Why not chase after it? Maybe it brings you to some other tangent. Chasing after the unattainable is the fun part.” Potter, who grew up mostly in New Hampshire, bloomed on the Yosemite climbing scene nearly 20 years ago. In 2001, he climbed the nose route of El Capitan in a record 3 hours 24 minutes. He was the first to free-climb (no ropes except to catch falls) both El Capitan and Half Dome in 24 hours. (cont.)

MAY 25, 2015 During his six years in Congress, Rep. Aaron Schock could count on commodity trader Darren Frye and his wife, Becky, for campaign cash, transportation and use of an upscale condominium in Chicago, according to records and sources. But now that Schock has resigned from Congress and is under federal investigation, his dealings with donors such as the Fryes could prove far from beneficial to him. Schock's use of the Fryes' condo and travel services may run afoul of campaign laws and House ethics rules, according to legal experts. In addition, some of the Fryes' campaign contributions have raised questions about possible "donor swapping," a practice that falls into a gray area in the law and can allow political candidates to effectively collect more from a single donor than is legal. A federal grand jury in Springfield has been hearing testimony amid a state and federal probe of the former congressman's use of taxpayer and campaign money. The grand jury is expected to hear from more witnesses in early June. The Fryes have been important donors to Schock and other Republicans. The couple has given more than $383,000 to Republican political committees and candidates for federal office since 2008, including $121,500 to Schock's committees and an affiliated GOP party committee. Darren Frye was Schock's guest at President Barack Obama's 2012 State of the Union address. Records show Schock, 33, regularly traveled with help from a Frye company that operated a Cessna airplane. Sources said the former congressman frequently stayed at a condo off Chicago's Magnificent Mile owned by the couple. Neither Schock nor the Fryes responded to phone calls and emails seeking comment. The Fryes have not been accused of any wrongdoing. Darren Frye is president and CEO of two Peoria firms. Water Street Advisory Inc. offers commodity brokerage services. Water Street Solutions gives financial advice to farmers and sells them crop insurance. Becky Frye co-founded Water Street Solutions with him and, according to the National Futures Association, is a principal at the brokerage. The Fryes, who live outside Peoria in Washington, Ill., were among four Illinois donors who accompanied Schock on a March 2011 trip to Saudi Arabia, sources said. The other donors on the trip were two Schock friends: Peoria car dealer Jeff Green and Galesburg beer distributor Adam Vitale. Schock never reported the trip, as required by the federal Ethics in Government Act. Vitale said he paid for his own ticket and declined to say more. Green has declined to comment on the trip. Schock's top aide and two other lawmakers on the trip said in travel disclosure reports the Saudi government paid their expenses. Condo and travel According to three sources, Schock regularly stayed at one or both of two high-end condominiums in downtown Chicago owned by the Fryes. The properties, one of which has since been sold, were held in the name of another Frye venture, D&B Developers LLC. House lawmakers are prohibited from accepting personal hospitality at a property owned by a corporation or firm. If the stays were a gift to Schock, he was required to put them on his annual financial disclosures. He did not. If Schock used a Frye condo for campaign business and did not reimburse the couple, that should have shown up in Federal Election Commission reports as an in-kind contribution. If he did pay them, it should have been reported to the FEC as an expenditure. Reports reflect neither. One source said Schock used a Frye condo at least five and as many as 15 times. One of the Frye condos "was Aaron Schock's condo, basically," he said. "They would allow him to have free rein." The transportation provided by the Fryes also could pose a problem for Schock.

Senator Rand Paul, of Kentucky, seems to have no problem contradicting himself. The self-proclaimed "constitutional conservative" is typically lost in libertarian thought leading him to make inflammatory sexist, racist and overbearingly hypocritical comments on nearly every issue he faces. Whether he's attempting to police women's bodies, ignoring police brutality for stingy tobacco taxes, or speaking out against vaccines and posting himself receiving booster shots only days later, Ron Paul's son is one politician you can unabashedly hate or enjoy laughing at. (see link)
Out of all the homophobic actors out there--and I’m sure their numbers are legion--Jensen Ackles irritates me the most. I don’t understand the gay men who worship him. He’s undeniably good looking but he can’t open his mouth without making a homophobic comment. What kills me is that gays everywhere take up for him just because of his looks. “Oh, he didn’t mean it that way;” or “Oh, it was just a joke;” or “Oh, you’re taking his comments too literally;” bullshit like that. Are you fuckin’ kiddin’ me??? I’m sorry but affecting a lispy high-pitched voice while ineffectually slapping at someone OVER AND OVER AND OVER, TIME AFTER TIME AFTER TIME, IN EVERY POSSIBLE CONTRIVED SITUATION isn’t funny. It isn’t a joke. And, similarly, using the word “gay” or “pansy” as a derogatory adjective in interviews isn’t okay either. Those things are evidence of a belief, people, an attitude toward gays, and I’m sick of guys lusting over him. I’m 46 and own my own architectural firm, and I have 6 architects working for me. Two of them are gay and about 10 years younger than me, and I had listen to them all goddam night go on about this guy. Even on DataLounge his name pops up constantly. It’s like a bunch of freakin’ yeshiva boys jonesin’ to blow motherfuckin’ Hitler. I don’t know what Ackles makes per episode, but word is that he clears 40k to 50k for an appearance at a “Supernatural” convention. So far this year he’s done twelve. On top of that, once he’s there he charges for meet-and-greets and photo ops, and it’s gays who are putting a lot of that money in his pocket. (Unless you’re [i]too[i/] gay. Then there’s no photo because he won’t pose with you.) Gays are also the ones glued to their tv sets each week, boosting his show’s ratings while they queer every gaze between him and his on-screen brother. [i]Idiots.[i/] This guy doesn’t even have the testicular fortitude of Sabrina the Teenage Witch! He won’t just come out and say what he thinks about gays, gay marriage or even politics because he knows it would hurt his career. In fact, his wife will re-Tweet stuff showing mild LGBT support just to muddy the waters and throw people, most likely Hollywood producers, off their GOP scent. However, the latest is that Stone Park Trust, the same trust that owns his Brentwood property--the same trust for which he’s the trustee--has allegedly made past donations to NOM, Prop 8 and Romney’s campaign, so anyone who thinks Ackles isn’t a Republican is nuts. His wife’s Twitter page practically spells it out, along with their very devout “I love me some Jesus” status. “Jensen’s favorite book is the Bible;” “His favorite actor is Jim Caviezel;” “His favorite time of year is Easter.” Blah, blah, blah. Man, I got nothing against anyone’s religion or their personal beliefs about gays and lesbians. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is entitled to their own opinions, but that doesn’t mean that I have to buy their product or watch their show. I’m not going to further any actor’s career so they can fight harder against my rights. And I’m sure not going to give someone like Ackles a starring role in my fantasies. I mean, compare his douchebaggery with the incredibly respectful and classy comments George Clooney made about constantly being called gay. Night and day. Night and day. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE HOMOPHOBIA, PEOPLE. STOP LUSTING OVER ASSHOLES.
I honestly think that I would be lost without DL. Despite all the mean comments I receive on DL (which I'm sure almost everyone is subjected to), it is one of the very few places where I feel at ease and feel accepted on more than one level. Life would suck without DL. What about you?
Has anyone ever purchased one of his films before? They seem like really hot short films. I especially like the Banker's hidden cam. Most of that video you can get online elsewhere, but some of the other one's, like the casual sex short seem worth the money. I love artistic real life porn. Sort of like Black Spark and the Clouds without the artsy pretension.

My dear old friend and I were having a discussion tonight about our boys. Mine is a Sharp shooter, hers special ops, very advanced. We're both very liberal- I asked her, "how do you feel about having a kid (these little guys rested in our arms watching Steel Magnolias, my good lil' guys) who is in the armed forces?" Now they kill people in the name of our democracy and they are quite accomplished. I'm an old queen with a kid who has turned into a bad assed mutherfuckah. My dad is SO proud. I love him, and I'm proud but A) I'm worried, and B) I don't like his tattoos. Little shit.
Please define the prison roles each young lady would assume.
Shame about the pubes, but he seems totally stoked about it
I just watched Dustin Hoffman on ITAS and thought he was really good. Lots of crying. Great anecdotes. Talks about his films from long ago in a very fresh, energetic way. He was great on it (& I'm not really much of a fan of his). What I want to know is who else has been really good on this show? Which episodes (if that's the right word) are worth looking out for? & which ones should be avoided?
Be proud and show off the little guy.

It's weird because he can actually carry it off with his hairy daddy thing--he's still about the hottest guy in porn right now, with his huge muscles, his hair, his gorgeous eyes, and his quiet super-confidence. But I would also say that right now he's the fattest major gay porn star working right now.
she NEVER made those homophobic comments!

Is anyone else watching STAR's Outlander? A woman time-travels from about 1946 to about 1743. Tonight is episode 2 (8/8/14). Some of the Scottish accents are a little tough to understand, but I think it has potential. I usually like time-traveling movies, so I am optimistic. It's funny the author picked ~1946 as the starting point, instead of the current date. Whatever.
And you hate it? My old job has already been filled.
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. Chris Rossini is author of Set Money Free: What Every American Needs To Know About The Federal Reserve.

[quote]Santorum to return to his Pennsylvania roots for ‘major’ announcement Pittsburgh Post-Gazette May 27, 2015 Cabot, an unincorporated community in the southeast corner of Butler County with a downtown that consists mainly of a post office, will be in the national political spotlight this evening. Former Sen. Rick Santorum, who grew up in the county, is returning home to make a “major” announcement, according to an organization called the Rick Santorum Presidential Testing the Waters Committee. Has he tested the waters enough to throw his anchor into the presidential pool once again? No one was saying Tuesday, but some Butler County residents are looking forward to his appearance at 5 p.m. at Penn United Technologies in Cabot, one of five communities that make up Winfield Township. Ray Lassinger, 76, of Butler has a photo in his office at Associated Ceramics and Technology in Sarver of himself shaking hands with the conservative Republican. He hopes Mr. Santorum is in the race. “He has a good heart,” Mr. Lassinger said Tuesday. “He’s concerned about people, about the next generation.” During the 2012 presidential primary election, Winfield supported Mitt Romney, who received 49 percent of the Republican vote there compared with Mr. Santorum’s 27 percent. Butler County residents overall voted similarly, despite Mr. Santorum’s ties. Mr. Santorum was born in Winchester, Va., in 1958, but his family moved to Butler County when he was in elementary school. He went to high school in Butler before the family moved to Illinois, where he graduated. According to a profile in 2005 in the Philadelphia City Paper, his nickname at Butler Area Senior High School was “Rooster,” because of a strand of hair on the back of his head that stood up and because of his “competitive, in-your-face attitude.” That’s what politicians need, his supporters hint. “We got some big, deep-rooted social problems,” Mr. Lassinger said. “I’m hoping that Rick has some solutions.” Others see his social conservatism as an obstacle in 2016 just as it was in 2012. “I like a lot of the things he stands for,” said Richard Krauland, 61, of O’Hara, president and CEO of NexTier Bank, which has its headquarters in Butler County. “I don’t think he has a good chance to win, but I said the same thing about Jimmy Carter in 1976.” Mr. Krauland met Mr. Santorum in 2000 during the politician’s campaign for the U.S. Senate. “I remember him as being a nice, clean-cut family man,” he said. “People thought he had a bright future back then.” Saxonburg Mayor Pam Bauman said she’s looking forward to finding out who all the presidential candidates will be in order to make her decision — but is happy to see a familiar name on the ballot. “A local boy is very exciting,” said Mrs. Bauman, who added that she had met Mr. Santorum once. Mrs. Bauman said she doesn’t know enough about his platform yet to decide whether to support Mr. Santorum if his announcement tonight is that he is a candidate. “[If] he’s in the running, we’ll see,” she said.

Nervous that she could end up in jail for not completing her community service, Lindsay announced that she will flee to Monaco where a "friend" has offered asylum. Earlier in the week, Lohan was seen running around Brooklyn in a keffiyeh, carrying a Qur'an. She was also recorded yelling the Arabic word for "enough" when stalked by a pap. It must be her safe word to prevent more of those bruises and abrasions she typically has on her legs.

Her son was born Sept. 2011. Bobby Flay and Stephanie March's divorce is not what you'd call amicable. The couple split in early April after 10 years of marriage and March is challenging the prenup under which Flay is required to pay the actress $5,000 a month. In Touch reports that March is challenging the prenup on the grounds that Flay allegedly cheated on her with three women, including actress January Jones. A source familiar with the case told the magazine that the former "Law & Order: SVU" actress is claiming in court papers that the 50-year-old celebrity chef "committed adultery" with Jones several times in the in early 2010. The magazine also reports that March has accused Flay of cheating with a food stylist and his assistant. Page Six previously reported that it's believed the couple's prenup had no infidelity clause, and if true, March's claims likely would not help her cause. However, TMZ reported that the actress also filed documents claiming that it's her "amazing palate" that is responsible for his success. Reps for Flay and Jones have yet to respond to requests for comment.

Some people just go too far. Read this shit: "The rickroll is a kind of postmodern "shared joke" that can be used to dissipate online social anxiety—at least inasfar as everyone "gets" it. But among whom is that implicit context shared, really? The truth, according to this insightful longread at Medium, is that rickrolling is highly problematic, especially in its dependence upon the semiotics of cisgendered discourse."

One of the officials, who would not speak publicly about the federal charges in Chicago, said “Individual A,” as the person is described in Thursday’s federal indictment, was a man and that the alleged misconduct was unrelated to Hastert’s tenure in Congress. The actions date to Hastert’s time as a Yorkville, Ill., high school wrestling coach and teacher, the official said.
Before the UK elections earlier in the month, David Cameron spoke about his desire to clean up the internet. Pulling -- as he is wont to do -- on parental heartstrings, he suggested that access to porn on computers and mobiles should be blocked by default unless users specifically requested access to it. This opt-in system was mentioned again in the run-up to the election as Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Sajid Javid assured peopled that the party "will age restrict online porn". But it's not quite that simple. There is the small problem of Europe. A leaked EU Council document shows that plans are afoot to stop Cameron's plans in its tracks -- and with the UK on the verge of trying to debate a better deal for itself within Europe, the Prime Minister is not in a particularly strong position for negotiating on the issue. Cameron has a fight on his hands, it seems, if he wants to deliver on his promise that "we need to protect our children from hardcore pornography". Documents seen by The Sunday Times reveal that the EU could make it illegal for ISPs and mobile companies to automatically block access to obscene material. Rather than implementing a default block on pornography, the Council of the European Union believes that users should opt in to web filtering and be able to opt out again at any time; this is precisely the opposite to the way Cameron would like things to work. The subject is written about in a document on the topic on net neutrality. It suggests that users would have to explicitly ask their providers to block access to content, and they should retain the ability to "withdraw this consent at any time". As reported by The Independent, David Carr from the advisory board of the UK council on Child Internet Safety reacted to the document by saying: "The risk is that a major plank of the UK’s approach to online child protection will be destroyed at a stroke". I, like the EU, have a problem with restricting access to the internet. Any sort of content management system is going to be flawed, that's just the nature of the beast. There is simply no way to ensure that all hardcore pornography websites would be blocked, nor is there any way to guarantee that perfectly inoffensive sites would not be inadvertently blocked. As is so often the case when the emotive issue of 'protecting children' crops up, there seems to have been very little thought put into how such a system could work. The sheer number of websites that pop up each day means that swatting one site you take exception to is like cutting a head off the Hydra: kill one and two, or more, will spring up in its place. Just as the fight against torrent sites has shown, while it is certainly possible to make access more difficult, it is absolutely impossible to stop people from accessing the content they want to access -- and if teenagers want to access porn, then they will… there are no two ways about it. To think that the web can be controlled like this is naive to say the least.
Would explain a lot.

She'll get $12 million to spill her guts. Monica Lewinsky is reportedly set to write a tell-all book about her affair with Bill Clinton - including her intimate love letters to the ex-president and how he had an insatiable desire for threesomes. The former White House intern, 39, reportedly wants revenge on Clinton, who she believes escaped unscathed while she has never been able to shake the disgrace of their Oval Office trysts. Friends claim publishers are scrambling to get their hands on the book, and after holding meetings, she has learned she could get as much a $12 million if she recounts every tawdry detail. While she has not yet secured a book deal, her apparent attempts to cash in on the affair could rattle the Clinton marriage - and wreck Hillary's bid for the presidency in 2016. Speaking to the National Enquirer, her friends said the memoir could even spark further health problems for the former president, who has undergone heart surgeries. 'Her book could be more than just revenge, it could kill him!' a source said. Her bids for a book deal will at least shake Clinton - bringing him crashing down from the success he enjoyed after an energetic speech at the Democratic National Convention earlier this month.
Acting Labour party leader Harriet Harman said that the party will now back a referendum on whether to remain in the European Union by the end of 2017. Speaking in the Sunday Times, Harman said Labour had changed its position after it "reflected on the conversations we had on doorsteps". However, she told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show the party would still campaign for the UK to stay in the EU. She said: "Whether we are in the European Union or not is a huge, important, constitutional, political, economic decision." Harman added: "There just does not seem to be the public appetite for us to man the barricades against a referendum that appears inevitably going to happen. We will vote for the bill and then get into the big questions for and against Europe." Prime Minister David Cameron has pledged to renegotiate Britain's ties with the EU ahead of an "in/out" referendum in two years' time. The party opposed the PM's plans under the leadership of former Labour leader Ed Miliband, but following the heavy defeat in the 2015 general elections, it has decided to change tack. Nearly half of the trade in the UK was from within the EU and it remained the country's largest export market, according to the article, and UK membership of the EU amounted to 4% for 5% of GDP. Pascal Lamy, head of the Notre Europe think-tank, said Cameron should be positive about the EU during the referendum campaign. The former director general of the World Trade Organisation told the BBC: "Most European leaders, including myself, feel David Cameron needs to be able to make a good case for Europe in the referendum. "He himself must make a pro-EU case in the UK, which frankly hasn't been done for the last 15 years. There has to be some change to the UK narrative, which will probably be the price for a compromise."

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.

In most movies, anal sex between two men is almost always shown doggie-style, which is perhaps why straight people don't know that gay men can do it face to face. I'm trying to think of films (non-porn) that show two men doing it missionary style; the only one that immediately comes to mind is the Mexican film "4 Moons" (2014), with Cesar Ramos (top) and Gustavo Egelhaaf (bottom), although their positioning doesn't seem quite right.

"I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That's the biggest problem for children in this industry. ... It's the big secret," Feldman said. The "casting couch," which is the old Hollywood reference to actors being expected to offer sex for roles, applied to children, Feldman said. "Oh, yeah. Not in the same way. It's all done under the radar," he said. "I was surrounded by [pedophiles] when I was 14 years old. %E2%80%A6 Didn't even know it. It wasn't until I was old enough to realize what they were and what they wanted %E2%80%A6 till I went, Oh, my God. They were everywhere," Feldman, 40, said. The trauma of pedophilia contributed to the 2010 death of his closest friend and "The Lost Boys" co-star, Corey Haim, Feldman said. "There's one person to blame in the death of Corey Haim. And that person happens to be a Hollywood mogul. And that person needs to be exposed, but, unfortunately, I can't be the one to do it," Feldman said, adding that he, too, had been sexually abused by men in show business. Feldman said his realization followed the discovery of what some adults around him had allegedly done to other children. "There was a circle of older men %E2%80%A6 around this group of kids. And they all had either their own power or connections to great power in the entertainment industry," he said. Feldman admitted that Haim struggled with addiction but said it was a mechanism to cope with his demons. "It was a symptom," he said. In their 2008 reality TV show, "The Two Coreys," Feldman and Haim confronted each other on their dark past. "[T]here's a lot of good people in this industry, but there's also a lot of really, really sick, corrupt people. And there are people ... who have gotten away with it for so long that they feel they're above the law, and that's got to change," Feldman said. Corey Haim's mother said in an email to ABC News, "I am not willing to discuss or respond to anything Corey Feldman has to say. He shouldn't be talking about my kid. I wish he would talk about himself only and leave my son out of it."
The child molestation case brought against Michael Jackson's estate by Australian-born choreographer Wade Robson has been dismissed, after a judge ruled too much time had passed to file a claim in court. Robson, 32, star of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance, and choreographer to celebrities including Britney Spears and 'N Sync, alleged he was repeatedly abused by Jackson for eight years, beginning in 1990. But Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff ruled the choreographer had waited too long to make a legal claim and dismissed the filing on Wednesday, May 27. Robson had previously said, under oath, that the "Thriller" singer had never abused him (the testimony was given during another molestation case brought against Jackson in 2005, for which he was eventually acquitted). At that time, witnesses claimed they had seen Jackson molest Robson, but the dancer vehemently denied it. His recent suit, which was filed against Jackson's estate in 2013 four years after his death, was, according to Robson, the result of a breakthrough in therapy which he received following a pair of nervous breakdowns in 2011. Jackson's estate has denied Robson's allegations of abuse.
Have to admit it''s become my favorite porn.\ \ Been in a relationship for 12 yrs., and i slipped up twice -- both times with a black stud. Yeah, it was good, really good.\ \ In my next life, I think I want black dick every day, and a lot of interracial porn.

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!
Joe Manganiello is doing the press circuit for Magic Mike XXL, in which he returns to the role of “Big Dick” Richie. Talking with Pop Sugar, the Italian stallion revealed the sequel will be racier than the original. “What I think a lot of people wanted the first movie to be, and were hoping the first movie was going to be — that’s what the second movie is,” he says. You’ll see us in all types of altered different states and unaltered dress states and undressed states.” The True Blood star compares XXL to the “out there” movies of the 1970s. “In today’s climate, I think movies play it very safe,” he confides, “and this is going to be something that is out there.” The site’s savvy reporter also asked Manganiello which Magic Mike XXL star would make the best real-life stripper. “Well, it’s like a boy band in that way that everybody has their favorite,” he demurred. We’ve got a 7-foot professional wrestler, big sexy Kevin Nash, who is one of the most charming, intelligent, and hilarious people you’ll ever meet in your life. Matt [Bomer] sings his own song — well, sings a D’Angelo song—but you know Matt can sing and dance and has that covered. You’ve got Chan, who is probably the best dancer on the planet, doing a routine with Twitch [in] which the two of them can dance it out for the best dancer on the planet. So you’ve got that covered in that way. Then you’ve got Adam [Rodriguez], who has this like great, fun, kind of New York flavor to him, and so you’ve got that covered. And then you’ve got my character — there’s a whole other thing that gets covered with that. Kind of like this BDSM sort of something. Has Joe practiced his routine for his girlfriend, Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara? “Um, she’s seen it.” Lucky bitch. Magic Mike XXL hits theaters on July 1.
Why did she and Sarah Paulson break up? Are they back together?

... is the excellent Thai food. Not the homeless panhandlers, the runaways, or the trannie prostitutes. Tattoo shops. Endless gift shops selling tacky trinkets. Freaks walking around with cobra snakes wrapped around their shoulders. Loads of pickpockets. Homophobic as well. If you're gay, stick to WEST Hollywood. The biggest mistake out-of-town tourists make is assuming Hollywood is glamorous. Native Angelenos never go to the Hollywood/Highland area unless it is to show tourists the Walk of Fame or the Chinese Grauman Theatre. Celebrities wouldn't be caught dead there, unless they're some Z-Lister like Angelyne. If you absolutely must visit Hollywood, stick with the Thai food.
The majority of us go to sleep each night wearing our pyjamas – only 8% of Americans go to sleep naked. But did you know that sleeping naked could in fact benefit your health? Read on to find out more. 1. Help Stop Your Insomnia By Sleeping Naked Recent studies have shown that a drop in core body temperature is needed in order for you to fall asleep easily. If you are wearing pyjamas, your body is unable to cool itself to the temperature at which it functions best when you sleep, and therefore, you are more likely to suffer from insomnia. Sleeping naked will allow your body to release any heat and cool down more quickly, enabling you to fall asleep faster. 2. Sleep Deeper And Longer Another interesting study has shown that your body temperature needs to regulate itself when you are asleep, by releasing excess heat throughout the night. Sleeping naked allows your body to keep and regulate the correct body temperature, which will result in uninterrupted deeper sleep and help you to sleep that little bit longer. 3. Sleeping Naked Helps Prevent Belly Fat When asleep your body’s natural cooling system helps to lower your cortisol levels during the deep sleep hours between 10.00pm and 2.00am. After 2.00am your glands start to produce more cortisol to actively prepare your body for the next day, so that you awake with energy. However, when you don’t get enough sleep, you wake up with abnormally high levels of cortisol, which will make you feel hungry all day and reaching for the sweet and fattening comfort foods that will end up as fat around your middle. Sleeping naked will help you to get a good nights’ sleep as your body will be cooler, helping to regulate your cortisol levels. 4. Sleeping Naked Helps You To Stay Looking Younger When we are asleep our bodies release growth hormones and melatonin, which are both vital anti-aging hormones. That’s why, when you have a good nights’ sleep you wake up looking well rested, but when you don’t sleep well you wake up looking haggard. Sleeping naked keeps your body temperature regulated and therefore your sleep will be of better quality, allowing you to sleep longer and deeper, with your body producing the right amount of hormones to keep you looking younger. 5. Sleeping Naked Is Good For Your Skin Sleeping naked is good for your skin as it is allowed to ‘air out’ because it is not restricted and overheated, therefore preventing sweating, especially in areas like your feet, armpits and genitals, which means a lowered risk of skin diseases like athlete’s foot and intertrigo (an inflammatory condition of skin folds, induced or aggravated by heat, moisture), which are caused by overheating and sweaty restricted skin. So, from now on go to sleep naked – you’ll get a better nights’ sleep, and have all round better health – so ditch those pyjamas!
This video was posted in another thread, Ass of the Day, Shower Edition. The guy in that thread was identified as Storm Lefron aka Baseball Dude. What do you think of his ass and body? Of course, NSFW.
Older heavy set guy with grey hair living in the Denver area seems to have a never ending supply of trade come over to his house for bjs. I'm also convinced a fair number of them are straight (ie closted bi) guys just looking for head because it's easier to find it this way than with a woman. He surreptitiously films his sex sessions with these dudes and then uploads it to his xtube channel. (at link above). He mentions that he places ads somewhere but I don't know where (maybe craigslist) He finds all types of guys willing to take him up on his offer to provide non-reciprocal oral sex. Lots of blue collar dudes (eg house painter, postman, hvac repairman, a car mechanic etc. etc.
Trash with money.
I get so sick of those Austinites who talk about how liberal their city is. It isn't liberal. in the 2012 election, liberal cities voted between 75 to 90 percent for Obama. Some cities/counties, like San Francisco or New York or Kings or Boston--and especially DC--voted up 10 to 1 Obama over Romney. Austin comes in at about 60%/40% Obama/Romney. That is NOT a very liberal city -- it is a moderate city that leans liberal. Texas is just one big assswipe of a state, and Austin is just a little better than the rest of it. That's all. And just wait till you see what Greg Abbot has in store for Texas.
I''ve been watching the show on and off for a few months. It''s oddly soothing to me but Ina Garten (sp?) is a bit too ''precious'' for me to relate to. She''s constantly entertaining her ancient gay friends and when she HAS made food for groups of people, I get the impression they''re all uber entitled Hamptons types.\ \ She seems okay but I don''t get the impression this little tea kettle of a woman would give me the time of day on the street. She seems to live in a perfect little bubble. UGH! Yet, something draws me to the program when I''m channel surfing and come across it.

Their story has changed half a dozen times already. Repulsive.
Anyone surprised? I'm not. She should have known when she was fucking him in her trailer, while they werer shooting Daredevil, that he was not a good "gamble".
If so, how'd you proposition him? I'm currently living in an area where there aren't many attractive gay guys at all, but tons of college students…most of whom appear to be straight. Needless to say, I think it's time to get creative.

May 28, 2015 [quote]Five Leaders In 2016 Republican White House Race [quote]Rubio, Paul Are Only Republicans Even Close To Clinton There are five leaders - or no leaders - as Republican voters look at likely GOP candidates in the 2016 White House race, with no candidate above 10 percent and 20 percent undecided, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today. Leading the pack with 10 percent each are former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. Rounding out the top 10 for televised debates are U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky at 7 percent, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at 6 percent, Donald Trump at 5 percent, New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie at 4 percent and Carly Fiorina and Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 2 percent each. Trump tops the "no way" list as 21 percent of Republican voters say they would definitely not support him. Bush is next with 17 percent, with Christie at 15 percent. Hillary Clinton dominates among Democratic voters nationwide, with 57 percent, compared to 60 percent April 23. U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has 15 percent with Vice President Joseph Biden at 9 percent. No other candidate tops 1 percent with 14 percent undecided. Clinton and Biden top the "no way" list with 9 percent each. "Safe to say, the 2016 Republican presidential primary is anyone's race. With no front- runner and identical numbers for the top five contenders, it's a horserace which can only be described as a scrambled field - at least so far," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. In a general election matchup, Clinton gets 46 percent of American voters to 42 percent for Paul and 45 percent of voters to 41 percent for Rubio. She leads other top Republicans: 46 - 37 percent over Christie; 47 - 40 percent over Huckabee; 47 - 37 percent over Bush; 46 - 38 percent over Walker; 48 - 37 percent over Cruz; 50 - 32 percent over Trump. American voters say 53 - 39 percent that Clinton is not honest and trustworthy, but say 60 - 37 percent that she has strong leadership qualities. Voters are divided 48 - 47 percent over whether Clinton cares about their needs and problems. Voters say 37 - 31 percent that Rubio is honest and trustworthy, 42 - 28 percent that he has strong leadership qualities, and 38 - 35 percent that he cares about their needs and problems. Paul scores 46 - 27 percent for being honest and trustworthy, 45 - 30 percent for strong leadership qualities and 42 - 36 percent for caring about their needs and problems. "Can you get low marks on honesty and still be a strong leader? Sure you can," Malloy said. "Hillary Clinton crushes her democratic rivals and keeps the GOP hoard at arm's length."

Don't usually buy diet things, so I was surprised to find a Diet Coke in the icebox, Flat. I looked at the label: Sell by 6/05. 05? Isn't that TEN years ago now?! No wonder it was flat.

I've lived in cities since I graduated college. I'm kind of over it. I don't go to bars. It's crowded, expensive, noisy, and I have a lot of friends around here. How much is my life gonna suck if I move to the suburbs? I am an introvert anyway w/ just a handful of friends who I don't even see much. I have a couple months to decide. I grew up in the burbs...although it's socially desolate, it's cheaper, quieter, easier to get around, and easier to get to work, than the city. I've never lived alone in the burbs, though...kinda seems like it will put me on a desert island, socially.
Any must see places along the way? I don't want to go far off track, but am open to any experiences from a great diner to .....?
Craig Ferguson and Kathie Lee Gifford are at the top of my list but who else is in the top ten? Nominations ... ?
After all only women are buying these products and have to pay tax for them. That is totally unfair because it penalizes 50% of the population to pay tax for a product that men don't need. So why should women have to pay an extra tax, while men don't have this extra tax burden. Vote below then discuss.

I saw them on some show with the volume turned down. Nick - the alleged "cute" one with FAS eyes = straight. Joe - the gawd-awful ugly one = straight Kevin - no descriptive qualities whatsoever = gay. My evaluation anyway.
I am enjoying it thoroughly. Anyone watching? I like the actress playing the lead character and her clones, and really enjoy the gay foster brother (I've always had a thing for hot campy guys). Maria Doyle Kennedy does "woebegone and stern" very well (The Tudors; Downton), but I have a feeling she'll get a chance to show more as the foster mom/grandmother as this goes on. Is the setting supposed to be Toronto?

Most the of the guys on in are barebacking sex pigs. I joined years ago when it was one of the few hook up sites online, but it's gradually become disgusting. Saturday night one guy (married bi) who is constantly sending me chats wanted me to step out for a walk in the middle of the night so we could hook up in a park. Then last night he said that he was on his way to a sex party and could drop by to pick me up if I wanted to join in. I blocked him after that. Gross. And dangerous. It makes Grindr look like a Bible study.

I lost 30 pounds in last 2 years and am starting to look really attractive. It's getting to the point where people will start to hit on me (I've been hit on by a random stranger the other day) and I have to choose between love or my career. And quite frankly, I think I will choose my career since relationships are not getting to work. I'll start looking when I'm 35. And if all the good ones have been taken, I'll look for someone 10 years younger. I mean younger males and older females are gettting more common see: aaron johnson taylor and his wife.
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.
In the 1950s there was a Quiz Show scandal, when it was found out that quiz shows were rigged. So Congress held hearings, the public was outraged, the networks stopped rigging their quiz shows, etc. Now 60 years later we have "reality" shows that are... not exactly reality. Yet no one seems to think rigged "reality" shows should be viewed the same as rigged quiz shows. Why is that? I don't really see a difference.
She's only 31, but looks 45. Yet her skin isn't wrinkled, she isn't unnaturally tan, she's trim and never been fat, she dresses youthfully, has no grey hair, and she has pretty enough features. But she looks like a weathered whore and I'm not sure why.

Jay Z's office photo at Tidal is kinda like playing Where's Black Waldo? -- and Jay Z is Waldo. The pic popped up on Beyonce's website this week, and shows Jay and Bey mugging with a few dozen staffers at the HQ for the streaming service -- and the ONLY black people in the pic are the owners. On the surface, this seems like something to celebrate. Progress and stuff, right? Problem is, Jay played the race card a few weeks ago, when he called out the black community for not backing his company... the way it supports Apple, Nike and Google. As a result ... the Internet has its knives out, making comments like: - "Jay tried to guilt trip us ... but his staff are all white" - "Jay does a 'Pro-Black' freestyle but then releases a picture of #Tidal's all White staff." - "Those who complain of no blacks in white owned institutions. Well here u go Jay Z OWNS TIDAL. U going to protest?" -"Jay ain't hiring u n***as" Keep in mind, the Tidal office is in Norway -- where the black population is around 2%. Sooo ... what's a black mogul to do?
This Downy Woodpecker visits every winter to a feeder outside my window. He's been coming around for about 5 years. The oldest known DW reached age 11y 11m. No evidence of a lady friend. DW comes daily but usually waits until the sparrows are finished. I don't get much variety of birds visiting here. Occasionally I get Blue Jays, who are easily spooked. I had a dove nest on my window sill recently, and I had a hawk visit once. The hawk made a God-awful screeching sound. I hope he didn't eat the dove.

It's Spring and green in Texas and today I saw an unusual tree in my neighborhood. I'm wondering if it's "special". The tree is an ordinary oak or elm type tree- I don't know the difference-and its leaves are all yellow and orange. All the other trees have green leaves. The tree's trunk looks healthy and it has the same height and fullness of the other green trees. Is this tree retarded in some way?

Some movies, even though they're really good, are not movies you really want to see over and over again (like, say, Platoon, or Shindler's List). But other movies, even if they're not that good at all, you can just watch endlessly and never get tired of them. I'm sure everyone has their own, but here are some of mine: The Wizard of Oz The Matrix Auntie Mame Star Wars Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Dude, Where's My Car LOTR: Fellowship Of The Ring LOTR: The Two Towers LOTR: Return Of The King Real Genius John Dies at the End

A mother in Wyoming talks about her "Tommy Toddler" potty training target, which was specifically invented with boys in mind. KCWY's Tony Cedrone reports. Watch:
I was watching an episode of the popular 70''s British comedy series, "Doctor in the House" on-line and was reminded how sexy and appealing the actor playing the lead in it was.\ \ I looked him up on-line and was quite surprised to hear about his sad personal life and tragic death. He never married and had no children.\ According to his bio, the Daily Mail published an article revealing his bisexuality after his death.For a long time he had supposedly had a crush on actor/director Lionel Blair.\ \ It also said after he stopped being offered parts as he got older,so he ended up becoming a taxi driver.In 1997, he died alone in a dilapidated bungalow at the age of 52.The death was ruled to be caused by alcohol poisoning but initially an eighteen year old boy he had befriended was accused of his murder.\ \ Anybody know more about this former tv star?
for a Hardy Boys & Nancy Drew re-boot! I am going to make some network exec on Datalounge, a lot of money, by pitching this guaranteed hit idea to you. Now go sell it to your bosses. The Hardy Boys & Nancy Drew series was very popular in the 1970's, and I can easily see it being revamped for this decade. Grab a couple of hot guys, put together some interesting murder-mystery plots, and voila! You'll have a hit series. When you get paid, don't forget to send me a check in the mail.
Don't ever trust them.

After being abruptly dumped by her longtime p.r. rep this week, Mariah Carey’s quickly moved to find a replacement — and is assembling a whole new management team ahead of what she hopes will be a career comeback. “Mariah is creating a whole new team around her,” an insider said. “New life, new relationships, new label, new management, new publicist, new residency, new, well, everything.”
Elderly gay man "adopts" his partner, so they can have legal rights and benefits with each other. How cute! "Once 'Father' and 'Son,' Now a Married Couple" A couple who were legally father and son for the last fifteen years had their adoption vacated and were married this week after 52 years together. Norman MacArthur, 74, and Bill Novak, 76, were married in Pennsylvania on Sunday. The couple, who has been together since their 20s, registered as domestic partners in New York City in 1994, but in 2000 they moved to Erwinna, Penn., where domestic partnerships are not legally recognized. “When we moved to Pennsylvania, we had both retired and we were of the age where one begins to do estate planning,” MacArthur tells Yahoo Parenting. “We went to a lawyer who told us Pennsylvania was never going to allow same-sex marriage, so the only legal avenue we had in order to be afforded any rights was adoption.” MacArthur says he thought the suggestion was strange at first. “It struck me as fairly unusual, but we looked into it and discovered that other couples had done it. [Without the adoption] we would be legally strangers.” An adoption would grant the couple certain legal rights they felt compelled to secure. “Most importantly, it would allow us visitation rights in a hospital, and gaining of knowledge if one of us was in the hospital,” he says. “With new HIPAA privacy laws, hospitals are very constrained in what they can say to other people. If we were legally related, I would be allowed into the ER and entitled to know what Bill’s condition was if anything should happen.” So in 2000, the two went through with a legal adoption. Since both men’s parents were dead, the adoption proceeding was fairly easy. “It wasn’t as though I was replacing one parent with another,” MacArthur says. “I was the son and Bill was the father. Bill is two years older than I am, so that was the only reason.” Hayley Gorenberg, deputy legal director at Lambda Legal, says that while adoptions like these aren’t common, they aren’t unheard of, either. “It reflects people’s deep need to protect each other as family, and the attempt to use law that obviously isn’t a perfect fit to their situation to protect each other,” she tells Yahoo Parenting. “While we’ve had a patchwork nation and people have been desperate to take care of each other in some basic way legally, people have sometimes gotten creative to do what they need to do to protect each other as a family. It’s entirely understandable.” But when Pennsylvania’s marriage laws, which prohibited same-sex marriage, were declared unconstitutional last year, MacArthur and Novak wanted to marry. “As marriage equality, which we’ve fought so hard for, is becoming more available, it makes sense that people would pursue the legal option that more closely explains who they are to each other,” Gorenberg says. “Marriage is the better fit, and if it was available without discrimination, it is what they would have chosen originally.” The couple’s original lawyer told them that no court would dissolve an adoption unless another person adopted MacArthur. “I said, ‘that makes no sense to me,’ so we began to look around for other options,” he says. Terry Clemons, a lawyer MacArthur knew through volunteer work on the township’s land preservation movement, suggested that the courts might look favorably on a petition to vacate an adoption if it was made clear that the only reason for the original adoption was to give a legal underpinning to the relationship. The couple went to court on May 14 in hopes the judge would sign the petition to vacate their adoption so they could get legally married. “When we went to court my knees were knocking, but at the end of the hearing Terry said, ‘we’re hoping you will sign the order to vacate the adoption from the bench,’ and the judge said ‘I will happily do that,’” MacArthur says. “We had 30 friends in court to show that this case was out of the ordinary — though the judge knew that — and when the judge signed the order our friends burst into applause and I burst into tears.”
This cast is crazy. How could Fox afford all of these names? And Shamalamadingdong is directing the first episode! Whaaaaaaaaat!
I googled Jeffrey Dahmer after finding out that he was a gay serial killer. And despite the fact that he's good-looking, (after googling photos of his victims, and finding the photo of the his victims' heads in the freezer) I find him really creepy and repulsive. But I'm sure he must have fans on here because of his good-looks. Thoughts on him?

I have lots of questions. Why did Mick Taylor cap off the speeches?? He was in the band for about four yrs. Where were Bill and Charlie? Not invited? Is Keith Richards wearing shoulder pads, or is he incredibly wide? Is Mick Jagger actually reading from a hand-scrawled speech on legal paper?? Why is Jann Wenner so chubby? Help!
I'm watching his PBS travel show and it's absolutely hilarious. He constantly sounds like he should be a nellie choreographer in a 30s musical: "All right, on your toes, girls!" It's jawdropping to me he's a divorced heterosexual.
Looks like this lowlife fuckin' whore will now be popping up on Marriage Boot Camp. Is she in a race with Lisa "Fuck Face" Rinna to see who can do the most of these "reality" shows?

It was the baby’s fault that he was nearly burned to death in his own crib. Bou-Bou Phonesavanh was barely a year and a half old, just learning to walk, and unable to speak, but those limitations didn’t stop him from engaging in “deliberate, criminal conduct” that justified the 2:00 a.m. no-knock SWAT raid in which he was nearly killed. The act of sleeping in a room about to be breached by a SWAT team constituted “criminal” conduct on the part of the infant. At the very least, the infant was fully liable for the nearly fatal injuries inflicted on him when Habersham County Sheriff’s Deputy Charles Long blindly heaved a flash-bang grenade – a “destructive device,” as described by the ATF, that when detonated burns at 2,000-3,500 degrees Fahrenheit – into the crib. The detonation of a flash-bang grenade. Merely by being in that room, Bou-Bou had assumed the risk of coming under attack by a SWAT team. By impeding the trajectory of that grenade, rather than fleeing from his crib, Bou-Bou failed to “avoid the consequences” of that attack. In any case, Bou-Bou, along with his parents and his siblings, are fully and exclusively to blame for the injuries that nearly killed the child and left the family with more than one million dollars in medical bills. The SWAT team that invaded the home in Cornelia, Georgia on the basis of a bogus anonymous tip that a $50 drug transaction had occurred there is legally blameless. This is the defense presented by Haberham County Sheriff Joey Terrell and his comrades in their reply to a federal lawsuit filed last February on behalf of Bou-Bou Phonesavanh and his family. A tax-subsidized settlement was reached about a month ago in which the National Fire Insurance Company will pay $964,000 to the family -- a little more than $538,000 for medical expenses, and multiple installments of $200,000 to the infant after he turns 18 in 2033. This arrangement will leave the family facing at least a half-million dollars in current medical expenses, a figure that will be matched or eclipsed by future costs incurred by Bou-Bou's ongoing medical treatment.
As time has passed and the years have gone by, it has become increasingly clear that the phone records collection program hasn’t stopped a single terror attack. In fact, a recently published report by the Justice Department’s inspector general admitted as much. This takes on increased significance with parts of the Patriot Act set to automatically sunset on June 1st. The Washington Times reports: FBI agents can’t point to any major terrorism cases they’ve cracked thanks to the key snooping powers in the Patriot Act, the Justice Department’s inspector general said in a report Thursday that could complicate efforts to keep key parts of the law operating. Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said that between 2004 and 2009, the FBI tripled its use of bulk collection under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which allows government agents to compel businesses to turn over records and documents, and increasingly scooped up records of Americans who had no ties to official terrorism investigations. Backers say the Patriot Act powers are critical and must be kept intact, particularly with the spread of the threat from terrorists. But opponents have doubted the efficacy of Section 215, particularly when it’s used to justify bulk data collection such as in the case of the National Security Agency’s phone metadata program, revealed in leaks from former government contractor Edward Snowden. “The agents we interviewed did not identify any major case developments that resulted from use of the records obtained in response to Section 215 orders,” the inspector general concluded — though he said agents did view the material they gathered as “valuable” in developing other leads or corroborating information. The report was heavily redacted, and key details were deleted. The entire chart showing the number of Section 215 requests made from 2007 through 2009 was blacked out, as was the breakdown of what types of investigations they stemmed from: counterintelligence, counterterrorism, cyber or foreign intelligence investigations. Redacted indeed. This is what pages 16-20 look like, and the pages immediately after these are just as bad.
The rumors are true – Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are on a break, a source tells PEOPLE. After three years of dating, the actors seem to have fallen victim to the perils of a long distance relationship. Garfield, 31, is currently shooting Martin Scorsese's new film, Silence, on location in Taiwan – and was noticeably absent from the Golden Globes and Oscars, where Stone was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. "He's thrown himself in the project to the detriment of all else," the source says of Garfield's work on the film. "But it's too early to say the relationship is over." "Emma understands his work anxieties – it's why she originally pulled out of Cabaret last year and only did it this year – but they're taking a break from seeing each other," the source explains. "They're both a slave to their schedules. This time last year they were privately discussing marriage." Meanwhile, the former Superbad sweetheart, 26, has been seen spending time with her brother, Spencer, in Los Angeles after wrapping up production on her new film Aloha, starring Bradley Cooper. Still, there is hope for the Amazing Spider-Man costars to reconcile once Garfield finishes filming in May. "It's one of those situations where only Andrew and Emma quite know if they'll pick up where they left off or they've separated," the source says." Another insider confirms that the split is temporary and not an official breakup. "They are just separated for work,” the source says. "Andrew is overseas. They are both busy with their careers and have not seen each other." The couple was last photographed together in New York City's West Village on Jan. 7. Reps for both have not commented.

Mayor Ron Huldai of Tel Aviv has come out in support of same-sex marriage and urges I srael to do the same. This comes days after the Republic of Ireland’s monumental marriage equality ruling by a popular vote. While kicking off Tel Aviv Pride this Wednesday, Mayor Huldai told The Jerusalem Post: "I think that the state of Israel can learn from Ireland, that just recently, in a referendum, approved gay marriage. I think that in the state of Israel, given the awakening that’s happening, it's important for there to be a city that says 'here, a person can live their life.'” Mayor Huldai is largely responsible for Tel Aviv’s thriving LGBT community and tourism. In 2012, Tel Aviv was named the world’s best gay city by GayCities .com. This year’s Tel Aviv Pride is set to be the biggest yet in the city's history, with extra focus on the city’s transgender citizens. Now that Ireland has legalized same-sex marriage and Greenland followed in its lead, we can only hope that Israel isn't far from a similar ruling.

She’s back! Well, almost, anyway. The ever-elusive Janet Jackson was all smiles when she was seen arriving at an L.A. rehearsal studio on Thursday, May 28. The “Nasty” singer, 49, is preparing not just a world tour this year, but also a new album, her first in seven years. The Grammy winner was dressed to fly under the radar in a black one-piece hooded sweatsuit and black cap. Though she had the hood up, her curly locks flowed and she smiled for photogs as she entered the rehearsal studio, no doubt to work on what will be some amazing dance moves for the tour. The superstar last toured in 2011, and her most recent, 10th studio album, Discipline, was released in 2008. Jackson has not yet revealed the title of her new record, but she may have dropped a hint with the announcement of new music earlier this month, using the hashtag #ConversationsInACafe. Though Jackson may be busy preparing for the upcoming tour and album release, she did have a bit of fun recently. As Us Weekly previously revealed, her husband, businessman Wissam Al Mana, threw a surprise birthday party for her on May 16, and the singer partied until 1:30 in the morning. A source also told Us that the Poetic Justice star had “two beautiful cakes” at the shindig held at L.A.’s Hyde Lounge, which 30 of her closest friends and family attended.

Republican Governor Pat McCrory has just announced he will veto an anti-gay marriage "religious freedom" bill lawmakers passed today. Back in February when the North Carolina state Senate passed an anti-gay marriage bill to "protect" magistrates from having to officiate same-sex weddings, Gov. Pat McCrory announced he opposed the legislation. The Republican governor has said little since about the bill, even keeping quiet Wednesday when the North Carolina House all but passed the bill, and even this morning when the House passed it and sent it to his desk. But in a wisely-worded statement, GOP Governor Pat McCrory this afternoon announced he will veto SB2, and cited the U.S Constitution as his reason. In a press release titled, "Governor McCrory defends Constitution," the 58-year old governor, elected in 2013, offered a smart analysis of the unconstitutional legislation. "I recognize that for many North Carolinians, including myself, opinions on same-sex marriage come from sincerely held religious beliefs that marriage is between a man and a woman. However, we are a nation and a state of laws. Whether it is the president, governor, mayor, a law enforcement officer, or magistrate, no public official who voluntarily swears to support and defend the Constitution and to discharge all duties of their office should be exempt from upholding that oath; therefore, I will veto Senate Bill 2." Many LGBT activists, including celebrities like North Carolinian native Clay Aiken, had pleaded with the Governor to veto the ill-conceived bill. Lawmakers will need a three-fifths majority to override the veto. NC Policy Watch notes that the Senate will likely override the veto, but the House may not be able to. Of course so called "values" groups were outraged

Yes, I realize that I'm late to the party. I've known about Chaturbate; I just never hooked into it and thought it was weird. But lately, I'm staying up until all hours sacrificing sleep and waking up late for work all so I can watch Chaturbate. I have no desire to be online and have anyone watch me jack off. However, I'm fascinated and bizarrely intrigued that so many people around the world are on Chaturbate without any inhibitions. I can watch for hours. Some of it can be boring, but some of it has me jacking off into the night while I watch. But now I think I need an intervention. I used to cruise DL at night, which I enjoyed while watching TV at home--and I went to bed at a normal hour. Now I'm turning into a sex-addicted Chaturbate voyeur. I need help. Anyone else have Internet addictions?

This was the same period in which his son Josh has confessed to having molested his younger sisters Tuesday, May 26, 2015 After last week’s tide of revelations about the lengths the Duggar family went to in order to hide Josh Duggar’s molestation of young girls — including his younger sisters — it seemed unlikely that the situation could get any worse for the stars of “19 Kids and Counting.” But today, Defamer published an archived version of Jim Bob Duggar’s campaign website, which revealed exactly what Josh’s father thought of his behavior. Jim Bob Duggar challenged incumbent Senator Tim Hutchison for the Arkansas seat in 2003 and lost — during the very period in which Josh was molesting his sisters — that caught the attention of Defamer’s Allie Jones: In his “positional statement” on abortion, candidate Jim Bob Duggar opined that a woman should not have the right to abort the product of a rape or incest, because “[t]he developing infant committed no crime and should be allowed to live.” As for the rapist or person who committed incest, however, he is breathtakingly clear: “Rape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such should be treated as capital crimes,” meaning that in Jim Bob Duggar’s Arkansas, his son would have faced the death penalty.
Does anyone else think that Ryan Reynolds seems gay? I mentioned this to my family and they were completely shocked. They can't believe that a macho stud like him could be gay. It never even occured to me that he might be straight.

Nancy Sinatra puts the rumors to rest: On CBS Sunday Morning, Nancy Sinatra talked about the rumors surrounding whether or not her dad, Frank Sinatra, is the biological father of Mia Farrow’s son Ronan. Sinatra called the rumors “nonsense,” and said, “[Mia] was making a joke and it was taken very seriously and was just silly, stupid.

Adding to the already stunning display of hypocrisy, it has been revealed that Jim Bob Duggar once called for executing those who commit acts of incest. When Josh Duggar was outed as a child molester who inappropriately touched his sleeping sisters, his parents– along with Mike Huckabee– immediately jumped to his defense, claiming on Facebook that it’s all okay because God allegedly helped their son and forgave him. “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.” Problem solved, right? Well, not really. The fact is that Josh Duggar escaped any real form of prosecution and punishment for his crimes because his parents covered them up, which is what a Huckabee-appointed judge continued to try to do by ordering Josh Duggar’s police record destroyed. And as it turns out, Josh Duggar also escaped an even more brutal punishment thanks to his father Jim Bob Duggar’s rampant hypocrisy. In 2002, Jim Bob Duggar ran for a US Senate seat and creating a campaign website that just so happens to still exist in cached form because nothing ever really disappears on the Internet. Anyway, during that campaign, Jim Bob Duggar answered a question about where he stands when it comes to those who engage in incest, which is what his oldest son Josh is guilty of committing. And how did Jim Bob Duggar answer this question? By calling for executing them, of course. Q. What is your abortion position, and specifically, where do you stand on rape, incest, and threat to the mother’s health? A. If a woman is raped, the rapist should be executed instead of the innocent unborn baby. Adoption is an option. Many couples would love to adopt and are waiting for a baby. Abortion has been and always will be the destruction of an innocent child. Rape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such should be treated as capital crimes. The developing infant committed no crime and should be allowed to live. In the unlikely event that the life of both mother and baby would both be lost (for example, a tubal pregnancy) all should be done to save the life of the mother. Did you catch that? Here’s the shorter version. “If a woman is raped, the rapist should be executed… Rape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such should be treated as capital crimes.” But as we all know, Jim Bob Duggar didn’t treat his son’s actions as a capital crime at all. Instead, he and wife Michelle covered them up. That’s a huge example of hypocrisy from the conservative “Christian” patriarch who would have others executed for committing similar acts. Josh Duggar is now 27-years-old, 13 years older than he would have been had his dad practiced what he preached. But apparently, the rules are different for family members. Just to be clear, no one is saying that Josh Duggar should be killed for his crimes. That would be inhumane. But the fact remains that Jim Bob Duggar once called for executing people who commit incest and changed his tune when it came to his own son committing such crimes. That’s not only hypocrisy, it’s ironic.
Joe Biden Calls Irish Gay Marriage Vote 'Courageous Stand For Love' By On Top Magazine Staff, Published: May 28, 2015 Vice President Joe Biden has applauded passage of a referendum on same-sex marriage in Ireland, now the first country to legalize such unions through a popular vote. Voters in mostly Roman Catholic Ireland headed to the polls on Friday. The following day, thousands gathered at Dublin Castle's central square, where returns were being announced live on big-screen televisions. The referendum passed with more than 62% of the vote. In an op-ed published Thursday, Biden praised the Irish people for taking a “courageous stand for love and family.” “They recognized the fundamental truth that every person is entitled to dignity and respect, and that there can be no justification for the denigration or persecution of anyone because of who they love or who they are.” Biden reflected on how the gay rights movement has grown in Ireland and the United States. “In 22 years, Ireland has gone from a nation where simply being LGBT was against the law to a nation where the people resoundingly stand for equal rights.” “And here in the United States, in just the past three years we've gone from six states recognizing marriage equality to 37 states, compromising 224 million Americans. It's about love. It's about equality. It's about dignity. It's about our most cherished values. That's what this is about – it's all it's ever been about,” he wrote. Biden added that it takes “courageous individuals who are willing to step forward, to turn adversity into positive change” and concluded with a quote from Irish poet William Butler Yeats: “Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking.”

“Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.”- Walter Scott I guess the Duggars didn’t cover classic Scottish poetry in their home-schoolin’ lessons. They should have. They have found themselves twisted and bound among a thousand knots, and they keep pulling at the threads Being the phoney, judgmental cretins that they are, it couldn’t happen to better folks. Here’s the latest. Jim Bob lied and his britches are quite possibly ablaze. According to “In Touch,” which broke the Duggar molestation and incest story late last week, the disgraced state trooper to whom Jim Bob Duggar reported his son Josh’s crime (only a year after Daddy learned about it) is claiming that the TLC star and pseudo-Christian hypocrite Jim Bob only told him about one of act of incestuous molestation. Jim Bob should know that lying is a sin, one of the Top 10. Because Bible. Former State Trooper Joseph Hutchens told a lawyer for “In Touch” that the reason he didn’t report Josh’s actions to the child abuse hotline is that Jim Bob only told him about one instance, saying that “Josh had inappropriately touched [redacted] during the time she was asleep,” and that “it only happened one time.” Hutchens, 69, was convicted and sentenced in 2007 on child pornography charges, and released on parole in 2010. Soon after his release he was arrested again and charged with four counts of distribution, possession or viewing of sexually explicit material involving a child. He is currently serving a 56 year sentence, though he will be eligible for parole in November 2020. Given Hutchens’ stellar example, one cannot help but wonder “Is it really possible to rehabilitate a sex offender?” Had he known the molestation happened repeatedly, Hutchens said he would have reported it to the proper authorities. “If I had to do it over again,” he said, “I would have told him immediately I am going to call the hotline and contacted the trooper that worked those cases and have a full report made. I thought I could handle it myself.” “I have lost a lot of sleep over it,” he told “In Touch.” “I am a Christian myself and I worry that something else may have happened. I would be responsible for it, in my opinion, by not reporting it. The young girl should have been my first priority.” Jim Bob’s deceptive actions could lead to charges of child endangerment against the 49-year-old Grand Poobah of the Duggar cult. The statute of limitations has expired for charging Jim Bob with a Class D felony or Class A or B misdemeanor child endangerment, dammit, but other charges could apply. Don’t fool yourself into thinking the molestation case ended when Springdale, Arkansas police closed their investigation in 2006 because the statute of limitations expired. Police shuffled the case over to the Families in Need of Service agency, which has jurisdiction over minors. Subsequently, the Department of Human Services was brought into the case. Nine months later, Josh Duggar filed a lawsuit with the Arkansas Department of Human Services. The trial took place August 6, 2007. The results of the trial and investigation are sealed. It is speculated that Josh sued to appeal the DHS decision, since DHS has the authority to apply restrictions or stipulations about Josh being in the home with the victims and being an in-home offender. The Duggars are refusing to comment on any intervention by either department or Josh’s trial against DHS. They also are refusing to say if their family was monitored by a state agency after the 2007 actions.
What was the big deal? Ryan wasn't exactly a hot an in demand actor anymore when they were together. Farrah was a decent TV actress, but never really made it in movies. Yet they were treated like Taylor and Burton, or Pitt and Jolie.

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.
[quote]Damn that fascist Obama!! Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree to make losses of Russian troops in peacetime a secret. The amendment bans information about the deaths of Russian forces "during special operations" in peacetime. The Kremlin has consistently denied sending regular troops and armour to help rebels in eastern Ukraine. But a new report from the US says Russia has been using training camps near the border as "launching points of Russia's war in Ukraine". The study by the Atlantic Council, published on Thursday, claims to have tracked Russian involvement in the conflict using photographs, videos and satellite images posted online. President Putin's move to ban information about peacetime military deaths comes amid fears of a fresh offensive by Russian-backed separatists.
The first pre-Alexis season was fantastic; very little camp. It's very well done. I am re-watching it now. One thing I just don't get though is why the new staff was so rude to Krystal. Yes, it made for a good story arc with Krystal learning to stand up for herself, but in what universe would a butler (even a snobby one like Joseph) and the rest of the staff be so openly hostile/uncooperative with the boss' new wife? They'd get fired if they did this in real life.
He's back to work after the birth of his son back in September. Daddy's predicting and answering weather-related questions on his FB page, while also documenting his new life as a DILF. People are asking him about their flights, and he's getting all involved with their activities. lol. Is Phillysnoop in the house? You ready for all dat sno?
May 27, 2015 A leading British theological historian has claimed that Western culture is hated in many other parts of the world because of its alleged "obsession" with sex. Speaking at the Hay literary festival, Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch – who also presents BBC TV's Sex and the Church – said the "pressing of sexual imagery on to the world" leads to Islamic extremists wanting to "kill people in the name of purifying the world". And it goes well beyond the Islamists in the Middle East and Africa. The Oxford professor said the hatred of Western culture could also be seen in Vladimir Putin's Russia. "It seems to me that it is about sex. A unique feature of Western culture is that it loves talking about sex, it obsesses about sex, it presses sexual imagery on to the world," he said, according to The Times. Other cultures think about sex a lot but they do not talk about it and they find it intensely embarrassing and frustrating that the West talks about it." Professor MacCulloch added that there were other factors in the jihadis' hatred of all things Western, including women's roles were taking in an increasingly equal society. "The anger that other cultures feel towards western sexual openness; it is so much of the murderous anger which we are seeing in Boko Haram, Islamic State and other revivalist movements of the 20th century," he said. "Islam, in particular, is the religion of angry young men who are terrified by the way in which women's roles have changed in the last 50 years." Professor MacCulloch, a deacon in the Church of England, has described how as a gay man he could not proceed further within the church. He said that Western Christian churches were still tearing themselves apart about many sexual issues, with the CofE having been "so stupid, so self-defeating" in putting a "quadruple lock" on having same-sex marriages within churches. "One of the greatest pastoral opportunities you can have is a wedding day," he said. "You can do so much on a wedding day. And here was the church stopping that possibility. As a loyal Anglican I feel really angry about it."
Is he gay? He's a cutie. Talented too.
The North Carolina House minutes ago passed a bill that effectively allows magistrates to refuse to marry same-sex couples, based on their religious beliefs. A law that will allow magistrates, citing their deeply-held religious beliefs, to choose to not marry same-sex couples. In order to appear non-discriminatory, the magistrate must promise to not marry any couples – gay or straight – for at least six months, but even during debate lawmakers were openly explaining that the legislation was to protect them from marrying same-sex couples. That alone will likely allow a court to strike it down as unconstitutional, if challenged.

[bold]Whiny Libertarian dude-bros are terrified of ‘vagina voters’ — here’s why[/bold] rom polls, libertarians are known to be a fairly homogenous group that skews white, male, young, affluent (i.e. college-educated), and has a reputation for not being particularly gender-inclusive. Far more identify with the Republican party (43 percent) than the Democratic party (5 percent). Is it surprising that they get anxious on the subject of people with vaginas who vote for liberal/progressive candidates? The latest freak-out comes from libertarian blogger-controversialist Brendan O’Neill, who warns in Reason magazine that “women voting for Hillary because she’s a woman are setting back feminism a hundred years,” hyperventilating that such nefarious activity “confirm[s] the descent of feminism into the cesspool of identity politics.” (In the past, Mr. O’Neill has expressed his concern for feminism by comparing it to radical Islam and opining that “stupid men, drunken men, thoughtless men and idiotic men” should not be considered rapists if they have sex with non-consenting women; clearly in his view, being a libertarian feminist would be akin to being a theological atheist.) ADVERTISEMENT O’Neill warns ominously of a tsunami of so-called “vagina voters” on the basis of a single blog by Kate Harding who justifies her own vote for Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama in 2008 by pointing to Clinton’s superior experience and the fact that she is female. Harding explains that she felt it unfair she was expected to disregard the candidate’s gender in her selection, “just as those who were excited to vote for an African-American person in the primaries were supposed to pretend they never noticed the color of the candidates’ skin.” Harding acknowledges that while she would prefer Bernie Sanders in 2016, she would ultimately vote for Hillary Clinton against a Republican because she found the Democratic party “less odious” than the other, and she figured that since we’ve had 220 years of white, male presidents, it might be a good thing to have a president who understood the experience of half the population. Shocking! (lots more at the link):
Anyone watch the premier?? I thought it was pretty fun. I look forward to the next episode.
Now they tells us this wonderful old format will be gone with the wind beginning next week. (sigh)
10 years and nothing except that "Hairspray" musical remake.

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
