That isn't easy even if you're a guy.
That's the only reason why I want another Clinton in office. If she can not deliver then please do not vote for her. Bill had his problems but at least the economy was good. I don't want to have her become the first woman president only to blame everything on GW.
Is the DL consensus that she has acting talent or not? Can you take her seriously as an actress? Did Gigli completely prevent her from taking any more acting roles?
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to honor both Prince William's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and his mom Diana, who died in a car crash in 1997, if their second child is a girl. Britain's next royal baby will be named after Prince William's mother Diana if it's a girl, it's claimed. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to call their second child — if she's a younger sister for 14-month-old Prince George — "Elizabeth Diana Windsor." The couple are said to have spent hours deliberating over the decision. Kate Middelton is reportedly a great admirer of her husband's late mom (seen with him in April 1992) And they reportedly ended up deciding to honor both Prince William's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and his mom Diana with the name. The claim was made by Diana's biographer Andrew Morton at the weekend. "They discussed girls' names before George was born and now they're hoping the next one is a girl so they can carry out their wish to honor William's mother," he told the Sun on Sunday. "Diana was always in the mix but they had to remember she wasn't everybody's favorite with the royals. By putting her name after Elizabeth they're playing safe. Nobody should be upset." The royal couple hold the Prince of Cambridge shortly after his birth in July 2013. "They're not too thrilled at the thought it will be shortened to Princess Di. But it won't change their minds," he added. Morton wrote "Diana: Her True Story" in 1992. The Princess died in a car crash in Paris, aged 36, in Aug. 1997. He also claimed that it was Kate Middleton, expected to give birth next July, who was the "driving force" behind the naming. "Catherine never met Diana but she's a great admirer of her humanitarian work and her influence on her sons," he said.
Not much discussion here for my 3 favorite shows, Sons of Anarchy, The Blacklist and Ray Donovan. I hate the bullshit at IMDB - can any of you suggest other sites? I'd prefer to discuss with other gay guys.
Sexy vintage masturbation video. This guy reminds me of the guys I used to fool around with. Ah, good times. NSFW, obviously
Yes, he died in 1995.
I've read lots of articles listing the worst gay men ever (Roy Cohen, Karl Rove, Ed Koch, J. Edgar Hoover, Jeffrey Dahmer, et al) ... but they seem to forget about the lesbians. Besides Condoleezza Rice and (Mama) Rose Hovick who else would you say that the lesbians wish weren't one of them?
on the advice of DL, I ate a clove of garlic to banish my head cold. Now my tongue is on fire and I cannot breathe. OW. What the hell???
Why do Muslims cut people's heads off when they get angry? Does it mean something in their religion? I am honestly just curious.
oooh and so no one will know he is a homo
81% at Rottentomatoes so far. Anyone going to see it? If not, can we at least discuss any hanky panky on the set?
Suck on it haters! Lens really is the voice of her generation. "I love Lena’s book (I’m calling her Lena). I just want that out of the way. Not That Kind of Girl is a memoir in essays crammed with frightful and delightful detail and Lena-ish quips. It is, says Lena, a sort of guide to getting the best out of life. Reading it is an intense experience – more shocking than I was expecting, sadder and more beautiful – anyway; within a few pages I have become Lena’s nanny, her mum, the older sister she never had but would have loved, and her best sensible friend. I’m charmed, anxious, furious and totally committed. She starts in typical self-deprecating fashion: “I’m already predicting my future shame at thinking I had anything to offer you… I am not a sexpert, a psychologist, or a dietician. I am not a mother of three or the owner of a successful hosiery franchise...” Lena’s being modest. She was included on Time’s “100 most influential people” list last year (not that we needed Time to spell it out, but there it is). She’s not the mother of three, it’s true, but she is the person who grew chubby from her OCD meds and who, while loathing herself, became a long-term vegan because a cow winked at her, and whose mother wore the kind of straw hat that “makes you want to kill yourself”. We want to hear from this girl because she came through it all and landed some big gigs. Because if she can, we can; maybe not an HBO comedy series or the $3m-plus advance that the press love to mention, but at least take part in real life and not trip ourselves up repeatedly thinking we don’t deserve it. Lena’s childhood should have been fine – she’d be the first to admit it – but from tot-age she’s an energetic and opportunistic worrier. Seeing a picture of anorexic girls with their hands folded, she wonders if, at some later date, she might be afflicted in the same way. She needs to see food emerge from its packaging before she can eat it. Her worries multiply and mutate and “the germophobia morphs into hypochondria morphs into sexual anxiety”.
As requested . . . I'll start . . . Will Patricia Arquette go for Lead Or Supporting in Boyhood? And is Richard Linklater a lock for Best Director? Will Michael Keaton get his first nomination and resurrect his career with Birdman? Who is more likely for Supporting Actress in that film - Emma Stone or Naomi Watts? And can Foxcatcher deliver nominations for Steve Carrell and Channing Tatum?
Who are these people?
Starts tonight. Are any of you planning on watching?
The last thread was erased. What did we think of the season premiere? Beck Bennett had lost weight and looked very hot, though I did not get at all the parody of the 80s sitcom he did with Kyle Mooney and Pratt. The new host of "Weekend Update" was terrible.
I live in an apartment built in the 60s. I don`t think it has been renovated. I clean regularly but black sludge has started building up in my drain. I could see it because the sink was old fashioned and had a much bigger drain than usual. I cleaned the sink like I usually do and poured extra cleaner down the drain but it got worse. It finally got to the point when my drain was basically clogged and the sink was getting plugged. I finally unclogged it with Drano. What the hell was it? I've never seen this before in my life.
Now that we all know about Bryan Singer's "proclivities", is it safe to assume that the reason Shawn is in the X-Men movies but Aaron isn't is that Shawn gave it up?
I wanted to start a thread on these sickos anyway.
So many threads are dedicated to hot celebrities, why not post one about the uglies?

Ahead of the release of ABBA: Live at Wembley Area, Benny Andersson tells Craig McLean why he isn't interested in an ABBA reunion At the ABBA Museum in Stockholm, all your dreams come true. Via the wonder of digital avatars, you can become the fifth member of the band, singing alongside Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Fridt. At another interactive exhibit, you can create your own mix of one of the innumerable hits that powered the band to 360 million album and singles sales. Or you can make your own pop video to Summer Night City. If ever a band were ripe for a ride on the reunion carousel, it’s the Swedish super-troupers, who are now being celebrated again, 40 years after their victory at the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton. Sadly, this museum is probably the closest any fan will ever get. Recreated in the small but packed museum is the small suburban kitchen inhabited by Björn Ulvaeus and Agnetha Fältskog in the late Seventies. In the audio guide, Ulvaeus explains how the weight of the foursome’s huge global success undermined this group comprising two married couples, creating all sorts of domestic subsidence. While his soon-to-be-ex-wife was increasingly craving more time with their children Ulvaeus, alongside songwriting partner Benny Andersson, was a slave to the recording studio. On the audio guide, we hear the result of that: Slipping Through My Fingers, a song about the lyricist’s regrets about not being around to see their son and daughter grow up. “Of course that was difficult for me too,” Fältskog told me last year, the sadness still etched into her face. We were talking in a grand, castle-style conference venue in another part of the Swedish capital. Now a 64-year-old grandmother of three, she was promoting A, her first solo album in nine years. “You want to be with them all the time. But then, there was long periods when the boys were writing and we could take it easy and be with the children. That could be half a year sometimes. [Then] I did the opposite of ABBA – coming from hotels and this life that we had, home to dishes and cooking and being with the children. I loved to come home.” Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad had no children together, but Ulvaeus and Fältskog worked hard to give their kids a normal life. “Yes, and we had very, very good nannies to take care of them. I think we did it well – they’re very normal persons today.” As for her children's children, they've seen granny’s old videos, “but we don’t speak about it often. We just live a normal life. I sing with them at the piano. But they are not aware of all things that has happened.” Does it feel like another life? “It does really,” she replied quietly. “It does.” A couple of hours before my ABBA Museum experience, I have my own time-travel trip. In his studio on the island of Skeppsholmen, a short boat-ride away, Andersson is introducing Live At Wembley Arena. It’s a recording of an ABBA concert from 1979, now being released on double-CD for the first time. The still shaggy-haired, still-spry 67-year-old pops some chewing tobacco in his mouth and presses play on a laptop. Wild cheering, clapping and whistling bursts from the speakers, accompanied by the portentous sounds of an old Swedish folk song, Gammal Fäbodsplan. Then out booms the arena-sized, synth-pop storm und drank of Voulez-Vous. After it ends, the keyboard player holds his hands up. Compared to the well-known single version (Number Three, 1979), “you can hear the tempo is slightly faster – that was the adrenalin. And I was responsible for the counting.” Pause. “But it was too fast.” Andersson gives a what-can-you-do? shrug.
What kind of statement was she trying to make with it? Even if that photo was taken before the swastika became abused by the nazis, I've never seen it used so prominently on a dress before. Was it a popular symbol in the 1920's?
The rules: 1. Only one question can be asked. If more than one question is asked I will only answer the first question and ignore any other question. 2. The question must be about you. No questions on celebrities, deaths, earthquakes, stock market, etc. 3. No vague "tell my future" requests. Questions should be specific. 4. Do not post any identifying information. 5. No follow up questions. 6. Include a short story or incident from your past that has an emotional impact on you. This will help me tune into your energy without you having to publicly out yourself here. Don't write a novel. It doesn't have to be long. 7. If you forget to post your story I will ignore your question. You must repost everything again in one post. Do not split it up by telling me your question and your story in separate posts. 8. I'm not taking the Randi Challenge. Don't treat me as if I am. 9. Be warned that in the last thread people like to reply pretending to be me. I will never answer in a cruel fashion to someone. In my real life I am a professional psychic and I know how to treat people and am very caring and understanding. People tell me everything so there's nothing I haven't heard before. 10. Be open-minded. You don't have to be a believer. However, you can't be a debunker. The more closed-off you are the crappier you reading will be. You can block your energy so that I can't pick up on it. Be positive. 11. I will end the readings when I decide to go to bead. I will post a message saying I am ending the readings. Any post made after I post that message will be ignored. Good Luck! :)
WTF is wrong with this network?
I don't have time for this snot.
I'm a person in a position to know about what the U.S. government knows about UFOs. For obvious reasons I can't reveal my identity. I swear this is 100% legit. Ask your questions and I'll tell you what I know. If I don't know the answer to a question I will not make up something but will tell you that I don't know the answer. All I can say is that reality is far crazier than you think. I honestly believe that people, including posters here at DL, can not handle the truth. However, I know that the public must be prepared for this knowledge as we don't have a lot of time left before our friends start acting in a far more open manner.
I want/need some. Do you have to go to a shrink or can your PCP give it to you?
Meet our eager friendly crew!!!!

In 1980, legendary comedian Andy Kaufman and his writing partner, Bob Zmuda, wrote a script for a film called “The Tony Clifton Story,” based on a character of Kaufman’s. On Page 124, there is a block of dialogue intended for Kaufman to speak as himself, informing viewers of Clifton’s demise. Among the lines: “On June 12, 1980 . . . Tony Clifton, at the age of 45, died of cancer at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Hollywood, California.” Four years later, at age 35, Kaufman himself would, supposedly, die — from cancer at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Hollywood, California. It was no coincidence, Zmuda reveals in a new book, “Andy Kaufman: The Truth, Finally” (BenBella Books), written with Lynne Margulies, Kaufman’s girlfriend. Not only does he firmly believe that Kaufman faked his death, but that Kaufman will be emerging to reveal his great prank to the world very soon. Longtime obsession Zmuda believes the germ of this idea — and, it appears, many of Kaufman’s mental-health issues — began with an incident in his childhood. As Zmuda tells it, Kaufman, who first appeared to be “a normal young boy,” had a grandfather he adored called “Papu” with whom he would “sing songs, play games and just have a great time.” But when Papu died, Kaufman’s parents made “a horrible mistake.” Instead of telling young Andy, his parents, fearing his heartbreak, said Papu “went away to another country far, far across the ocean and wasn’t coming back.” So rather than learning to deal with death, Kaufman thought he had been abandoned. This, Zmuda says, is when Kaufman began withdrawing from the world. He would “lock himself in his room and start talking to the walls.” But it also, Zmuda believes, planted the idea that life and death “could be manipulated.” “It was here where I believe Andy would develop the concept of ‘bending reality’ to suit his needs,” writes Zmuda. “If his parents could fake his grandfather’s not dying, Andy would just fake himself dying.” Kaufman, a “Saturday Night Live” regular who rose to fame on the sitcom “Taxi” and was immortalized by Jim Carrey in 1999’s “Man on the Moon,” was known for stunts, such as once taking his entire Carnegie Hall audience out for milk and cookies after a performance. He began talking with Zmuda about faking his death several years before his “actual” death. When SNL’er John Belushi died in March 1982, Kaufman was very upset — not for normal reasons, but because, as he told manager George Shapiro, “John Belushi is pulling my stunt, faking his death.” Shapiro, who recalls in the book that Kaufman truly believed this for a time, says Kaufman spoke often of faking his own death. “Could you imagine how this is going to blow everyone’s mind?” he would say.
I loved Michael Moriarty in Law & Order. He had a commanding presence in that show that was probably accented by his 6'3" height. He was replaced with Sam Waterston as DA ages ago, but I don't think Waterston was as good, or even, good at all. I'm watching a rerun "The 4400" now and Moriarty speaks like he'd had a stroke, but I read his IMBD entry and he seems to have always been unstable. He seems to have prematurely aged, too. I'm surprised he's still alive, though he's only 73.
I say 5 or 6. You?
The old thread was closed... and there's just not enough eye candy in this world, so this thread is here to fix that! No nudes, just totally gorgeous men:
Enough about Kathryn Knott -- let's discuss the men. This is the thread to bash them back. We don't have as much info on them, since they didn't leave their social media accounts up, but we can still discuss them. First topic: closet cases?
Continuing a great thread with fabulous pecs.
Like 7" or more totally soft. You know it happens. Of course, they don't get much bigger after it firms up (though we know it doesn't get any shorter haha). But something about a man who is helplessly saddled with the proverbial "thigh slapper" for life is so hot.
Does anyone remember this gem from the 80's? What can I expect?
Someone predicted that Part 13 would not bode well for the HKN. And that prediction came true. Let's go back in time for a minute and reflect on the disasters that HKN has had to face: Google did not live up to HKN's promise when they took down the Partners designation; Robert did not live up to HKN's promise when he went public with Twigs; Kristen has not been living up to HKN's promise for a long time by not showing up in public with Sweet Pea, and the Havenettes aren't being faithful to HKN by not fully buying her complicated photo shopping scenario. Oh well. The number 13 is unlucky, after all. So that explains it.
The trailer is out! And it looks like Jimmy is finally getting some vagine. But still no phallic entertainment on the horizon for Thomas. Bloody bollocks! Even the poor sodomites need companionship in this post-War era! Isobel, could you ring us up some tea, dear?
Bitter Betty indeed!!!!
It could happen.

No, actually, just because your kid gnawed its way out of your stanky vagina, you don't get to tell me how rude I am because I wouldn't let you check out first at the grocery store. After I unpacked half my cart. GIVING BIRTH DOES NOT MAKE YOU MOTHER EARTH, YOU CRANKY BITCH!

If so, any really bad side effects, especially anyone with mild renal failure? I'm always very nervous about taking antibiotics. I had friend who's brother died from Steven Johnsons disease, a horrible death that the got from antibiotics. I also read really horrible stories here about Cipro and Avelox (sp?). I have a UTI and mild renal failure since I'm a lifelong diabetic. The doctor wanted to give me Cipro, I said no way since I had a terrible reaction to Avelox and found out here on DL they are in the same family. So he said he might give me a sulfur drug when the urine culture comes back.
After mostly laying low for months and staying away from the driveways of Memaw Mushroom Queens and Party City wigs that look like they were pulled out of the gutter the day after Halloween, Amanda Bynes got arrested for allegedly driving while under the influence of drugs. Insert TyraScreamingWeWereAllRootingForYou.GIF here. Also, insert the ShockedNotShocked.GIF for the people who follow Amanda’s supposed secret Twitter account.What do you think? TMZ says that Amanda was pulled over in L.A. on Saturday morning. The only thing that TMZ knows right now is that she was taken to a nearby station at 4:10AM on a misdemeanor DUI. She was released into the wild at around noon after posting $15,000 bail. Amanda Bynes’ quick descent into Our Lady of Cheetos circa 2008 territory started when she was arrested for DUI in 2012. And now here we are again.What do you think? I’m sure TMZ will throw up Amanda Bynes’ latest mug shot of beauty any second now and if she’s wearing a crooked wig that looks like it was made with Benji’s mangy ass hair and she’s looking at the camera like, “Camera, you’re ugly,” then everyone in the L.A. area needs to immediately build a safety fence around their driveway.
Why is this? No one else cares in the slightest! Only it does.

I had to start new thread for all things Louis. Fuck that bloke is fit. Anyone still on the fence about him being gay?
Eli just got sacked AND managed to fumble the ball. He was saved by a Cardinals penalty, but still. They are a disaster. Who cares if he has two rings. He needs to be sent packing.

What did George and Amal do?
I've been on again off again dating a guy who is the worse fucking kisser. I swear, I either take a tongue bath or get a closed mouth widow spinster kiss. I've talked to him, kind of around the issue, and he definitely seems sensitive about the issue, but shit, it's such a turn off. Lately, I've just began to tell him I'm going to fuck you and simply turn him around and fuck him or shove his head down to my cock and tell him to blow me. I don't know how to approach this issue and instruct him.
Ok. Let's try this again. No wondering why the other threads were deleted. Any news today? Are there any death toll updates?
Not invited to the Clooney wedding. Guess he's not one of the cool guys in the lunch room.
with very wealthy people, crazy, wonderful, passionate people.. a lot of texas ranchers and a particularly stodgy grand dame with multiple personalities and a wonderful diction.. The Four Seasons, The Palace...? It was a wonderful place. And I had never experienced a world that could go from one extreme to another as this place did. I wlll say that I was NEVER bored. And I will never experience a place like this again. I sure do miss it. I miss the people. I miss it's passion and I miss its humor and pathos. It was quite a life.
It's about as nonsensical as shutting down the Mamie Eisenhower. There was nothing remotely offensive there (unless you consider comparing the Duggars to baboons offensive.) Maybe the Philadelphia gay bashing threads were shut down for no reason, too?
Not that it should surprise anyone here, but problems are now being experienced in the old "Meet Philadelphia Gay Basher Kathryn Knott - New Thread" thread which, itself, was the last in a long line of disappearing threads on the topic of the Sept 11th group assault of two gay men in Philadelphia. These threads will continue to experience issues and eventually be shut down as more and more freepers, conservative trolls and their various ilk try and have them shut down. But this has always been a story that was born out of people on the Internet who weren't afraid to tell the truth about the injustices that were happening around them. So, we're going to keep discussing this case. And we'll also keep talking after this thread has been infected. This is the new thread to discuss all developments, discussion of the case, the many evil faces of Kathryn Knott, etc. Have at it, friends.
I'd say this one qualifies by any standard.
Rockstar Jon Bon Jovi (John Francis Bongiovi, Jr) was pronounced dead today after paramedics found him in a coma at his Empress Hotel, city and law enforcement of Asbury Park, NJ sources told The Times after World Christmas Tour concert on The Bamboozle Festival,North Beach Asbury Park. New Jersey Fire Department-First Aid Captain Douglas Gray told The Times that paramedics responded to a 911 call from the home. When they arrived, Bon Jovi was not breathing. The paramedics performed CPR and took Bon Jovi to Jersey Shore Medical Center, Ruda said. Hundreds of reporters gathered at the hospital awaiting word on his condition. The sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Bon Jovi team rushed to Bon Jovi’s bedside, where he suffered Cardiac arrest. The detectives plan to interview relatives, friends and Bon Jovis’s doctors to try to figure out what happened. The N.J. County coroner’s office will determine a cause of death. A New Jersey Fire Department source told The Times that Bon Jovi was in full cardiac arrest when rescue units arrived.

Ummmm... "First Kim nearly takes a tumble after an enthusiastic prankster tried to hug her, and next the couple are booed by high-fashion hecklers for turning up late to the show. However, Kanye wasn't going to sit there and be jeered and dropped the name of Lanvin's creative director to excuse their tardiness. 'Alber [Elbaz] asked to see us we're not late, don't boo us,' he said in a video obtained by TMZ. Once seated, it looked like Kim wasn't the only one keen to flash her cleavage on Thursday night. Because Kanye mirrored his high profile wife on the front row by unbuttoned his sleeveless shirt to his navel. Kanye's well-defined pectorals were a sight to rival Kim and her famous assets as they sat front and centre for the catwalk show.

Darlings! Come, come, join us. I'll have Matthew fix us some nice hot toddies and we'll all sit by the fire and gossip. I need to hear more about those awful, trashy types you've been talking about.

But not necessarily in that order.
The Shining is on cable this morning. It's been years since I've watched it. I think the music should be its own character because it is wonderful. Was Jack Nicholson drunk during the entire shooting of this movie? He appears to be. Lastly, in older movies when people are driving cars, why do they move their hands so dramatically on the wheel? Was it that difficult to steer a car in the 1980s?

Aging lesbian, gay and bisexual adults in California have higher rates of chronic disease, mental distress and isolation than their heterosexual counterparts, according to a report released yesterday by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research.... Aging gay and bisexual men were 1.5 times more likely to rate their own health as fair or poor than were heterosexual men with similar demographics. They also had significantly higher rates of hypertension, diabetes, psychological distress and physical disability. And 50.5 percent of gay and bisexual men lived alone, compared to just 13.4 percent of their heterosexual counterparts. "They are in a particularly vulnerable situation," Wallace said. "If you have a fall, if you need somebody to take you to the doctor, need somebody to help you with medications, that's more of a challenge." The same was true for women. One in four lesbian and bisexual women lived alone, compared to one in five heterosexual women. The report found significantly higher rates of psychological distress, physical disability and self-reported health as fair or poor among lesbian and bisexual women.
Victoria Grayson here, bitches.
Meet Sadie Stone, the new girl in town on “Nashville.” Laura Benanti debuts on Wednesday on the ABC series, where she plays a singer-songwriter whose slow-mo career gets a sudden jump-start. “Sadie is respected in the musical community,” says Benanti, who starred in NBC’s “Go On.” “But she hasn’t had a breakout hit.” A new album changes everything. And superstar Rayna James, played by Connie Britton, becomes her ally. “Rayna takes Sadie under her wing,” says Benanti, who describes her character as “casual and silly, not glittery and fabulous. She’s a lot like me.” Five episodes into production on her planned 10-show story line, Benanti says it’s been “calm seas” between Sadie and Rayna. But on nighttime soaps cordiality can curdle instantly. If need be, Benanti assures, Sadie can throw down. She can also sing. Sadie’s country-fried duet with Rayna, a fiery number called “Gasoline and Matches,” airs in episode four. Benanti has shown off her pipes on Broadway, where she won a Tony Award for “Gypsy,” and on NBC’s live telecast of “The Sound of Music” a year ago. Does the actress have tips for the cast of the upcoming live broadcast of “Peter Pan”? “Christopher Walken doesn’t need advice from me on anything,” she says, referring to the Oscar winner who’s playing Captain Hook. “Except maybe a good restaurant recommendation.” Benanti adds that if she was asked to play Tiger Lily, she’d book a ticket to Neverland quick as you can say “Ugg-a-Wugg.” “That’s just what the show needs,” she says, “an Italian Tiger Lily.”

Omar Gonzalez, the White House fence-jumper from earlier this month, apparently surprised the guard at the front door because a nearby alarm box had been muted: After barrelling past the guard immediately inside the door, Gonzalez, who was carrying a knife, dashed past the stairway leading a half-flight up to the first family’s living quarters. He then ran into the 80-foot-long East Room, an ornate space often used for receptions or presidential addresses. Gonzalez was tackled by a counter-assault agent at the far southern end of the East Room. The intruder reached the doorway to the Green Room, a parlor overlooking the South Lawn with artwork and antique furniture, according to three people familiar with the incident. Secret Service officials had earlier said he was quickly detained at the main entry. Agency spokesman Edwin Donovan said the office is not commenting due to an ongoing investigation of the incident. So....they just lied? On a related note, I wonder who the whistleblowers are that have been feeding all this stuff to WaPo's Carol Leonnig? Not that it matters, I suppose, but I'm curious about whether it's folks who are appalled by the security lapses or folks who have some other kind of axe to grind.

Marie Osmond in her Las Vegas show filmed a new segment where she portrays Hollywood icons and uses Hollywood make-up artists for her transformation. This is the behind the scenes and I think she nails them. I'd liked to see the finished film.
For decades Prince has thrilled with his eclectic songs and unique style. And as he prepares to release two albums on the same day, Katya Foreman assesses his wardrobe. There is a funky homage to New Age spiritualism on the cover of Art Official Age, the latest album by Prince, the solar system reflected in the singer’s Lennon-style sunglasses with their striking additional third eye. His cream turtleneck and embroidered gold-leather gilet add to the cosmic vibe. Add in a perfectly coiffured microphone-shaped afro, handlebar pencil moustache and flawless complexion, and the visual message is clearly one of precision and control. His eyes shaded from view, Prince is untouchable, protected, preserving the air of mystery the interview-shy artist has cultivated throughout his four-decade career. With a nod to his spiritual side, this new look evokes more the commander of a mystic disco spaceship than the horny, doe-eyed provocateur of yore; among his outré early looks, the kinky costume for 1980s Dirty Mind comprised a red neckerchief, open trenchcoat, thigh boots and bikini briefs. Back then, of course, Prince – who for many defined the sound of the ’80s, with his erotically charged combination of funk, rock’n’roll, soul and New Wave – had only one thing on his mind when it came to carving out his own unique visual image. “He was very, very savvy, even at an early age, and knew he had to differentiate himself and the band in specific ways. One of the earliest conversations I remember having with him, right after being brought into the fold, was that he wanted everybody in the band to have a distinct image, and that what he was going to do was, in his words, ‘portray pure sexuality’,” recalls Dez Dickerson, Prince’s lead guitarist from 1978 to 1983, in the documentary Prince in the 1980s. “Over time, he understood that that was kind of what brought him to the party, and he’s been real consistent with that.”
Gay bashers need to be treated just like terrorists because they are terrorists. Throw them in Guantanamo Bay and waterboard the shit out of them. There is literally no punishment too cruel and unusual for any anti-gay hate crime. And if you are anti-gay, you're giving aid and comfort to terrorism.
Maybe more like BRETT Butler?
Who the FUCK was that hot, ripped guy at the end... the Diet Coke guy? WANT!!!
Gays always hail Stonewall as the start of the gay rights movement but there have been few violent uprisings since. ACT UP had some pseudo violent moments like the sit in at St Patricks cathedral--and ACT UP was extraordinarily effective. Heck, the civil rights movement soothed because Malcolm and his rhetoric of violence served as a contrast to MLK's. Would gay rights have moved faster if we brought guns with us?
Who should play the lead?
On tonight's episode of the Simpsons they showed Ned with wings and flying up to heaven. They normally only do this when they kill off a character or when an actor has died. The actor who voices Flanders, Harry Shearer, is still alive. So did they kill of Ned Flanders? Weird.
Do you partake?
I'm dying to know!
President Obama says ISIL, the BBC says IS and CNN says ISIS. I think it should still be ISIS.
Well, when did he?
Seriously, it's getting ridiculous.
If you don't live in a gay ghetto, is there a way to do it without becoming a shut-in?
I want to know the sex secrets of the Orient! Well?
Anyone see the premiere? I thought it was nicely produced but don't see how they can make an entire series out of it.
Such a beautiful woman in her day. What went wrong? Why was she so wonderful playing Cordelia on Buffy/Angel but horrible in every other role? Why has her looks drastically deteriorated?
I despise gore and violence in films, but something about the contempt and casual violence in this film captivates me, including that of Fassbender's wife and Paul Dano's treatment of the slaves. I find his portrayal almost sexual as I did Ralph Fiennes' in Schindler's List. This is not even racist but rather just an admiration of the contempt and ease with which they engage in violence. I am not a violent person, but I find it captivating in this film for some reason. I also found Hannibal Lecter's brand of contempt and violence intriguing but that has been years. I also enjoyed when Dano's character got beaten to a pulp. He got what he deserved.
Talking with my cousin who's the same age as me--both early 40s--she insists the seventies really were a better and simpler time. No cable, no videos games, no internet, no cell phones. Better music, better TV better movies. I countered with much more overt racism, sexism and anti-gay bias. Massive interest rates, gas crisis, difficulty finding good work. She says that yes there was much more sexism, and work place harassment, but at the same time people weren't so uptight and humourless like now. She said that people were more ignorant about the world and that made life easier to live. What say you Dataloungers?
This is so hot!
A poll. I know it's probably impossible to avoid the subsequent insanity in the posts so I will ask (with no authority and less hope) that if you comment you confine your response to why, without debating anybody else and ignoring anyone who tries.) It would be interesting to see a list of the reasons why and why not without the foolishness on the other thread. Remember, obsessive fangurls can only derail a thread if you engage them between fistfuls of corn chips.

I was watching an excellent documentary about the life of Divine on Showtime. His bf was porn star Leo Ford, believe it or not! Divine was one-of-a-kind. Any memories to share?
Me 1- Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal. I eat it only a few times a year but when I do, I go through a whole box in a day. 2- Extra spicy chicken wings. 3- Ketchup chips. We have those in Canada and I love to eat them once in a while with a nice cold beer.
She joined Sandra Oh, Sarah Jessica Parker, Britney Spears and Amy Winehouse on the list. I'd venture to say that Madonna is the ugliest of the five, for the gap teeth alone. I've never been fond of gaps.
The “Umbrella Revolution” is not going anywhere. If anything, it is spreading. Pro-democracy protesters again defied Chinese officials and took to Hong Kong’s streets Monday. They carried umbrellas and wore goggles to protect themselves from police batons and tear gas amid the worst unrest the former British colony has seen in decades. Fight on. Video:
Is anyone else looking forward to this new Ken Burns series? Three fascinating historical figures, one of them voiced by our own Meryl! Also, what are your favorite Ken Burns series? I have to admit that I never watched The Civil War, but I loved Baseball and Jazz.
The season is off and running, and already we welcome a new member (David McElwee's) to the Broadway BD Club. The game is afoot!
Has she poked her head out spouting her stupidity in any threads? Or is she quite while mourning her "great loss"?
Hopefully she doesn't have Grandma's thighs.
Does anyone else thinks it''s ugly?
Damn, I never knew EM Forster was so kinky. And that's a quote from his personal diary, not from one of his books.
"Lover" is out, so I have to modify my stories. I understand "boyfriend" - someone you're dating and presumably fucking regularly and exclusively*. Is there a term for steady but not fucking? Can you date freely? Or is that just "whore?" But, what comes before boyfriend and after boyfriend but before engaged? * Theoretically.
Bakula offers breakfast 'Creole eggs, with remoulade sauce and Andouille sausage. Deviled eggs and spicy sausage would not be a breakfast item. The eggs are more likely found at a party and the sausage is more often used in sauces and gumbos than straight with breakfast.
Rescue workers on Sunday found more than 30 people unconscious and believed to be dead near the peak of an erupting volcano, a Japanese police official said. The victims have been described as not breathing and their hearts have stopped, which is the customary way for Japanese authorities to describe a body until police doctors can examine it. The official from Nagano prefecture police said details of where the bodies were found and their identities were not immediately known. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak publicly. Mount Ontake in central Japan erupted shortly before noon Saturday, spewing large white plumes of gas and ash high into the sky and blanketing the surrounding area in ash. At least 250 people were initially trapped on the slopes, but most made their way down by Saturday night. Keita Ushimaru, an official in nearby Kiso town, said that Nagano prefecture crisis management officials had informed the town that at four people were being brought down with heart and lung failures, and that there were others in the same condition. Rescue workers were also trying to bring down the injured who were stranded on the mountain overnight. Military helicopters plucked seven people off the mountainside earlier Sunday, and workers on foot were also helping others make their way down.
In July 1971, Henry Kissinger got into a small plane in Islamabad and briefly disappeared off the map. The official story for the next couple of days was that he was ill, but in fact President Nixon's right-hand man was on a secret journey to Beijing that would electrify the world. It was a period when the US was constantly redefining the possible. Just two years before it had put the first man on the moon. While the physical challenges of building diplomatic ties with Mao's China were not quite comparable, politically it felt like the equivalent of smashing through the stratosphere. It says much about the dangerous tilt of the world that when we meet – 43 years later – we find ourselves talking about the possibility of war between the US and China. The subtle diplomatic architecture that Kissinger constructed in those historic visits looks increasingly under threat. In his new book, World Order, he cites a Harvard study that shows that in 10 out of 15 cases, when there's an established power and a rising power, war ensues. I ask him how likely he thinks conflict is, and what can be done to avoid it. "Both President Obama and President Xi – President Xi particularly – have said they would like the relationship to demonstrate how tensions actually could be dispersed between a rising power and an existing power," he replies in his distinctive lugubrious gargle. "But having said that, they have not been able to give it a practical expression. And I think it is a huge problem." Referring to the simmering tensions over the South China Sea Islands, he says, "Sooner or later one of them is going to lead to a confrontation. I don't want China and the US to be like Germany and Britain in 1914, but I don't think we can resist it primarily by military deployments along the Chinese border. So the question is: can we create a space between ourselves and China... with an American military presence being on the horizon but in which we can compete by some established rules?" We meet on a clear blue September day in New York at the offices of Kissinger Associates, the international consulting firm that he runs with Brent Scowcroft, also a former US National Security Advisor. Though Kissinger is 91 and is recovering from a recent heart-valve operation, the overwhelming impression in his offices is of youth, as good-looking young men and women flit discreetly in and out of different doors. Kissinger once said of Mao: "He had the quality of being at the centre of wherever he stood". It was a trait he deeply admired, and he has cultivated it in himself. Despite the fact that he is the shortest person in his office and now uses a stick, the aura of power is unmistakable as he walks into reception and surveys me, blinking, a cross between Cardinal Richelieu and a European eagle-owl. President Ford holding a meeting in 1975, when Kissinger (right) was Secretary of State President Ford holding a meeting in 1975, when Kissinger (right) was Secretary of State (Getty) Kissinger's enduring magnetism for world statesmen almost certainly dates from his success in gaining the US President an invitation to meet Mao. That meeting marked his rise from senior politician to international phenomenon, one of the most glitteringly divisive figures of his time. The statesman "must act at the outer edge of what is possible," he declares at one point in his book, "bridging the gap between his society's experiences and its aspirations."
I hope this doesn't affect my nesting doll collection.
Just watched a crime procedural where three people had committed a murder 25 years ago, but were able to successfully bury the body and cover up the crime. Over time, one of them became consumed with guilt and after 25 years was ready to confess. Do you think you would be able to go on living without letting the guilt overtake you, or would you crack too? Are you currently living with a secret you will take to your grave? Personally, I don't have any big secrets like that, but I'd like to think I have an iron will and wouldn't be burdened with guilt.

Did any of you know Cary Leeds? He had the biggest cock in New York, lived in a penthouse on the West side, then moved to Florida, Delray then Miami. Did porn. Into orgies, black men. Any of you knew him, any stories?
She's an international film sex siren, but I'm not sure who we're supposed to think of as her model. Is she supposed to be Brigitte Bardot? Sylvia Kristel?
Obviously excluding horror classics such as "Exorcist," "Shining," etc. Candyman (1992) is a great example. Excellent, overlooked little horror gem that also happens to star two criminally underrated actors as the leads (Virginia Madsen, Tony Todd). Tony Todd perhaps being the most underrated black actor or all time (but that's another thread).
WASHINGTON — Devoted customers of Apple products these days worry about whether the new iPhone 6 will bend in their jean pockets. The National Security Agency and the nation’s law enforcement agencies have a different concern: that the smartphone is the first of a post-Snowden generation of equipment that will disrupt their investigative abilities. The phone encrypts emails, photos and contacts based on a complex mathematical algorithm that uses a code created by, and unique to, the phone’s user — and that Apple says it will not possess. The result, the company is essentially saying, is that if Apple is sent a court order demanding that the contents of an iPhone 6 be provided to intelligence agencies or law enforcement, it will turn over gibberish, along with a note saying that to decode the phone’s emails, contacts and photos, investigators will have to break the code or get the code from the phone’s owner. Breaking the code, according to an Apple technical guide, could take “more than 5 1/2 years to try all combinations of a six-character alphanumeric passcode with lowercase letters and numbers.” (Computer security experts question that figure, because Apple does not fully realize how quickly the N.S.A. supercomputers can crack codes.) Already the new phone has led to an eruption from the director of the F.B.I., James B. Comey. At a news conference on Thursday devoted largely to combating terror threats from the Islamic State, Mr. Comey said, “What concerns me about this is companies marketing something expressly to allow people to hold themselves beyond the law.” He cited kidnapping cases, in which exploiting the contents of a seized phone could lead to finding a victim, and predicted there would be moments when parents would come to him “with tears in their eyes, look at me and say, ‘What do you mean you can’t’ ” decode the contents of a phone. “The notion that someone would market a closet that could never be opened — even if it involves a case involving a child kidnapper and a court order — to me does not make any sense.” Apple declined to comment. But officials inside the intelligence agencies, while letting the F.B.I. make the public protests, say they fear the company’s move is the first of several new technologies that are clearly designed to defeat not only the N.S.A., but also any court orders to turn over information to intelligence agencies. They liken Apple’s move to the early days of Swiss banking, when secret accounts were set up precisely to allow national laws to be evaded. “Terrorists will figure this out,” along with savvy criminals and paranoid dictators, one senior official predicted, and keep their data just on the iPhone 6. Another said, “It’s like taking out an ad that says, ‘Here’s how to avoid surveillance — even legal surveillance.’ ” The move raises a critical issue, the intelligence officials say: Who decides what kind of data the government can access? Until now, those decisions have largely been a matter for Congress, which passed the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act in 1994, requiring telecommunications companies to build into their systems an ability to carry out a wiretap order if presented with one. But despite intense debate about whether the law should be expanded to cover email and other content, it has not been updated, and it does not cover content contained in a smartphone. At Apple and Google, company executives say the United States government brought these changes on itself. The revelations by the former N.S.A. contractor Edward J. Snowden not only killed recent efforts to expand the law, but also made nations around the world suspicious that every piece of American hardware and software — from phones to servers made by Cisco Systems — have “back doors” for American intelligence and law enforcement. Surviving in the global marketplace — especially in places like China, Brazil and Germany — depends on convincing consumers that their data is secure.
Two Brooklyn men and one teenager have been charged with hate crimes, after they chased down a gay man and shot him, on Saturday September 27, 2014. According to police, the three attackers hurled anti-gay insults and profanities at the victim, who ran in fear for his life. The three men, Cody Sigue, 22, Matthew Smith, 21, and Tavon Johnson, 17, chased after him. The shooter, 21 year old Mathew Smith opened fire on the man, hitting him once, before police arrived at the scene. The bullet struck the 22 year old victim in the buttocks. He was treated at Brookdale University Hospital and released. The three attackers fled as police arrived on the scene. They were all taken into custody, following a brief foot chase. Sigue and Johnson have been charged with menacing and third-degree hate crime, while Johnson has been charged with first-degree assault. Police say the victim, who was dressed as a woman, was walking with friends early Saturday morning, when the attack began. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, between 1995 and 2008 there were 15,351 anti-gay hate crimes in the US. The organization says that the LGBT community is 2.4 times more likely to suffer a violent hate crime attack than Jews, 2.6 times more likely to be attacked than black people; 4.4 times more likely than Muslims; 13.8 times more likely than Latinos; and 41.5 times more likely than white people. In 2013, reports of anti-gay crimes in New York rose 26 percent. There were 594 reported anti-gay attacks in the city last year, up from 470 in 2012. Last year marked the fourth year in a row that reported hate crimes against the LGBT community had risen from the previous year. The jump in 2013 was the highest yet. While the latest victim of homophobic violence survived Saturday’s brutal attack, there’s little doubt that, had authorities not arrived on the scene when they did, this man’s life would have been taken by these three attackers. Authorities say the shooter in this incident, 21 year old Mathew Smith, was also responsible for another shooting that occurred the night before the the attack on Saturday morning.

It has been more than two weeks since two gay men were attacked at 16th and Chancellor streets, and new details are still emerging. Now that Kathryn Knott, Kevin Harrigan and Philip Williams have been charged with the crime, an affidavit of probable cause describing the incident has been made available by the court. According to that document, the incident began when "words were exchanged" between the two groups of people, with suspect Kevin Harrigan allegedly calling the victims "faggots" several times before a "heated argument developed." The affidavit also alleges that Knott screamed "faggots" at them and hit one of them in the face. Below, the affidavit.
It's not a thing, people. It's just cake baked in a sheet pan. Get the fuck over it.

Just wondering if it's still a thing. Honestly, I never really liked it. Sure, it was novel but there's something disturbing about eating cake that has been soaked in a liquid. Also, and just for the record, I still don't think most people know that these cakes are meant to be refrigerated. You can not just keep it on the counter. I made that mistake real fast and few things stink as bad and spoiled milk products.

I've had a life-long nightmare with the post office. For the umpteenth time they put "vacant" on my mailbox. I've lived here for 2 1/2 years. It's a private bank of individual boxes inside a gated community. There have been literally weeks when I could not get paychecks, bills, magazines, anything. The last few places I've lived were even worse. Please don't tell me to call the "800" customer service number. Literally hundreds of calls later, I get a call from a heavily accented person who says says I should walk the 7 miles round trip to the post office, where after waiting in line for an hour, he will show me where my place is listed as vacant. He refuses to tell me how to correct the problem. The post office used to accuse my neighbors of stealing my ads and bills. This has never, ever been the case. Then the post office accused me of living in a poor neighborhood; also a total lie. You would not believe the horrible insults I've gotten over the years from Sen Reids and Shelley Berkeley's staff. I've been repeatedly blamed for moving too often. This is a lie, although it is my legal right to move when I choose. At least the NV Republican elected officials are sympathetic but powerless to do anything at all. Any advice? I wish the post office would go private. Maybe then I could get my paychecks from out of state without a nightmare.
When I was in the 7th and 8tth grade, we had gang showers. The gym teacher, a recent college grad, would stand at a small window and watch us showering. If anyone got a boner, which happened at that age, he would point it out and mock the kid. Sometimes he changed with us and showered with us. Sometimes, he would wrestle some of the guys in class when we were changing and then place his jock strap over their faces. It all sounds like a porn movie fantasy. But it's all true. I think that if this kind of behavior was reported today the teacher would be arrested. Was it standard behavior any where else? Just curious.
Would you wear one?

A suit filed in District Court claims 18 examples of where the $1 billion animated film overlaps with Isabella Tanikumi's autobiographical works. Disney says 'she needs to let it go.' A $250 million lawsuit against Disney claims the inspiration for the mega-blockbuster film "Frozen" came from the works of a Peruvian author. Isabella Tanikumi, aka L. Amy Gonzalez, filed the suit Sept. 22 in U.S. District County in New Jersey, accusing the Walt Disney Company of copyright infringement, fraud and plagiarism, according to court documents obtained by E! Online. "This is beyond ridiculous, she needs to let it go," a Disney spokesperson told CNN. Tanikumi said the 2013 animated film, which made $1.2 billion worldwide, ripped the tale of an ice queen who is saved by her princess sister, but only after an epic journey aided by a snowman, mountain man and reindeer. The suit cites 18 examples of where the film and Tanikumi's own autobiographical works overlap. She claims Disney stole the story, characters, plots and subplots from two of her works, "Living My Truth" and "Yearnings of the Heart." One of the plot similarities includes a betrayal. The suit alleges that in Tanikumi's work: "Isabella's first love played with her affections and did not return her love." Compare that to Disney's "Frozen": "Anna's first love played with her affections and did not return her love." 'This is beyond ridiculous, she needs to let it go,' a Disney spokesperson said of the suit. Disney has said "Frozen" is loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen's 1844 fairy tale "The Snow Queen." The company has big plans for the franchise, including merchandise, a planned Broadway adaptation and an EPCOT theme park ride. In the three-page suit, Tanikumi, who lives in New Jersey, says she wants a jury trial and for Disney to halt any further marketing efforts. Now that's cold.

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro dedicated all of her Sunday show to the growing danger of ISIS, and how viewers should prepare to fight Islamic terrorism on U.S. soil. After 45 minutes of talking to Fox News contributors about the fight against ISIS — and how President Barack Obama was bungling the effort — Pirro brought on former Navy SEAL Larry Yatch for advice on how Americans could “protect themselves against terrorist attacks on our own soil.” “What does the ordinary viewer do at this point?” Pirro wondered. “You’ve got to have a mindset, you’ve got to be prepared. To be the winner, you’ve got to be ready. But what do you do for your family?” Yatch said that it was important to have a plan of action, and to prepare in advance with the right equipment. The former SEAL recommended that everyone prepare a “go bag” with food, and the ability to filter water. Women who wore high heels to work, also needed to carry other shoes in case of attack, he said. Yatch said that viewers should pack “comfort items” for sleeping and charging their mobile phones, and a knife for defense. Following a commercial break, Pirro opined that President Barack Obama’s plan was “anyone can enter” the country, and she shared advice from viewers who were preparing to fight terrorism in their communities. “I know my family takes the threat of ISIS seriously, we are locked and loaded,” a viewer name Angie wrote. “Our shores and borders have already been penetrated,” Ray wrote in. “Every one of us has to be vigilant in our neighborhood, and on our jobs.” “If the Obama administration won’t do it, we Americans must band together to protect ourselves from the terrorism here on our soil,” Ann told Pirro. “I am locked and loaded, let them in if they can get past my guns,” a viewer named Wendy said. Felicia said she was preparing with a three month supply of food storage, 1,000 rounds of ammunition, and she was living “as normally as I can.” Susan wrote in that she had been “practicing at the gun range, and I just bought myself a pretty pink pistol.” Pirro added that viewers needed to stock up on ammo before Homeland Security hoarded all of it. Carol advised that she was “target practicing and praying,” and Jason said that he was purchasing “a gun or two — can’t depend on the current government to protect me.” Watch the video below from Fox News’ Justice With Judge Jeanine, broadcast Sept. 28, 2014.

Samy Bouzaglo, who runs Amy's Baking Company in Arizona, was caught on camera waving what looked to be a knife and cursing at patron during a shouting match outside his restaurant. The Scottsdale eatery was featured in an infamous episode of Gordon Ramsay's 'Kitchen Nightmares' last year. This baker’s buns may be headed behind bars. A notoriously hot-headed restaurant owner who feuded with chef Gordon Ramsay on "Kitchen Nightmares" chased a drunk customer out of his restaurant and threatened him with a knife, authorities said. Samy Bouzaglo, who runs Amy's Baking Company, waved a knife and screamed profanities as he ran the patron out of his Scottsdale joint at around 5 p.m. Saturday, local CBS5 reported. Part of the confrontation was captured in a video posted on TMZ. In it, the white-haired Bouzaglo is clutching a small, sharp-looking object in his right hand as he screams at the unseen customer on the sidewalk. In the beginning, his wife Amy, is trying to push him back into the restaurant, but by the end of the video, it's Samy who is trying to hold her back. "You motherf---, piece of s---- coward!" Amy Bouzaglo yells at the man. "You drunk! You drunk!" Police were summoned to the scene, but no arrests were made. Police told CBS5 they wanted to talk to the customer, and charges could still be filed. Meanwhile, someone at the restaurant later told TMZ the Samy Bouzaglo was holding a pen during the incident, not a knife. The short-tempered was catapulted into the national spotlight in 2013 after a disastrous appearance on the FOX reality series "Kitchen Nightmares." The couple was shown feuding with both customers and employees, and servers told Ramsay the couple pocketed their tips. Ramsay eventually walked away from filming. After the episode aired, the couple had a meltdown on social media, using Facebook to lash out at the "little punks" and "fools" who criticized their restaurant on Yelp and other sites. More than a year later, the vulgar threats are still visible on the restaurant's page.
When did they live now that they've met? Did Halls bear the kids himself? Does Bomer have much of a career now that White Collar is vanishing and the Emmys didn't reward him? Does Matt (Bomer), in fact, have a womanly ass?

Belgrade was placed under lockdown last night as Serbia’s first Gay Pride march in four years took place under the watchful eye of tanks and special forces. The activists were able to advance several hundred metres through the deserted city-centre streets, but only thanks to the protection of thousands of riot police, water cannons and helicopters. It was a rare sight for Serbia, one of the most conservative countries in Europe, to witness a march akin to those found in the more cosmopolitan cities of London and Berlin. Albeit on a smaller scale and with far more security. After a march in 2010, pride events were banned for three years because of clashes between police and extreme right-wing groups, which saw more than 100 people injured. This year there appears to have been little violence, despite threats made by ultra-nationalists. Belgrade’s mayor, Sinisa Mali, who joined the demonstration with foreign diplomats, said it was an opportunity to show that Belgrade is a world capital where “all citizens are equal.” Darko Pandurevic, 23, from Sarajevo, who came to show solidarity with marchers, added he felt “a little bit scared,” but believed everything would be fine. Pressure from the EU is thought to be the main reason Serbian officials allowed Sunday’s event to take place after the three year ban. The country is keen to join the organisation and wants to burnish its human rights credentials. “This is a very positive and strong message,” the head of the EU mission in Serbia, Michael Davenport, told the rally. “It is also a strong message to those using hate language.” There is some way to go before members of the LGBT community can enjoy full acceptance in Serbia however, as thousands of anti-gay campaigners protested against the march on Saturday and the head of the country’s Orthodox Church denounced the march.
It's a transaction between two consenting adults. How is it different from taking a date out to dinner and expecting sex afterwards?
R60, (from the Clooney getting married thread) I'm on FB under my name. I've just arranged for professional pics; what's there now is another amateur shot. I'm also on Gmail. Again, it's under my name (first&middle.) I'm calling your bluff. I'm in discussion for a few new "faux" reality series, and just left one because of the pay. I've also responded to another local comedy performance opportunity. I am NOT looking to be a star, as I'm a comedy/character actress. Right, the ditzy blond that everyone else teases. At least I'm told that I have "excellent, excellent sense of timing." We know casting isn't based on talent or even looks. Since I'm not bi or a super slut, I never expected to have a major career. Too bad I'm not related to Hal Kanter, as everyone asks. Whoever he was. I hinted at what Mr. Clooney promised to help me reveal, on last night's free question to a psychic thread. It would have been polite if he had told me to look elsewhere for representation, after I was told not to sign with a different manager. Obviously I must have totally misjudged his character and level of honesty. I've now moved on. There are those on DL that will always insult evryone else. I accept that fact.
We recently bought a condo with wall to wall carpeting. Since it was brand new, we decided to keep it instead of replacing it with wood or tile. But does it get dirty in a hurry! Do any of you have carpet steamers? Do they work well? Any recommendations or advice? I see them listed at around $100 or so, and it seems to me we should buy one instead of constantly calling in Stanley Steemer.
For me, he's got the red hair, the build, the eyes, and the lips.
I'm rooting for it because of the Asian male/White female romantic pairing which has never been done before. If it fails, no network will touch that kind of racial pairing ever again. John Cho wasn't supposed to star in the My Fair Lady-like ABC sitcom Selfie. The producers of the show were looking for someone more in the traditional Henry Higgins mold, namely British and oldish. Cho is neither, but as creator Emily Kapnek has said, the further they got into their search, the less the older and British parts mattered. Eventually, she said, "We just need a brilliant actor — and John's name came up." That said, there's no getting around the fact that this is an update of an iconic character we've always thought of as British, and it's difficult to avoid the question: Can 'Enry 'Iggins be an Asian dude? (The answer in this case is yes, absolutely.) Sure, in a perfect world, there have been so many Asian-American male romantic leads that this casting choice is hardly worth noting as unusual or counter-intuitive, but as Cho himself acknowledges we don't live in that world. There's a reason we still have to call it "colorblind casting" instead of just "casting." Interestingly, the traits that make the classic Henry character tick overlap with commonly held views of Asian-Americans: nerdy, uptight, workaholic.
Full tweet in response to X-rated video NSFW (It's obviously not him): "I'm 100% not homophobic. But I'm also 100% not gay so when somebody says I am I'm gunna say I'm not which does not make me a homophobe"

Ozzy Osbourne says the band had such a good time with their last album and tour that they want to repeat the experience before it’s too late Black Sabbath, uncowed by guitarist Tony Iommi’s cancer and by rumour their gig this past summer in Hyde Park would be their last, are to reunite for one last album and tour, singer Ozzy Osbourne has told Metal Hammer. “The whole Sabbath experience this time around was great,” Osbourne said. “We all made friends, we didn’t fuck around, we all knew that we had a job to do, and we did it. It was a lot of fun. So we’re going to do one more album, and a final tour. He said the ageing of the band had placed a certain time pressure on making a decision about whether to regroup. “I said, ‘Sharon [his wife and manager], I ain’t fucking 21 anymore. If we’re going to do [it], I want to do it before I’m 70. Time isn’t on our side.’ So she made the call and came back and said, ‘Yeah, the record company wants another album.’ I believe Rick Rubin is going to do it with us again.” No new material has been written yet, but Osbourne said sessions would probably get underway in 2015, and that although no location for writing and recording had been decided, “I’ll fly to the fucking moon for it if I have to!” Black Sabbath’s last album, 13 – featuring original members Osbourne, Iommi and Geezer Butler – became an international hit. By reaching No 1 in the UK, it set a new record of 43 years for longest gap between No 1 albums. At the time of 13’s release, Osbourne had said he would like to make another album, but was non-committal about it actually happening. “I don’t want to promise anything to anyone,” he said. “It took us long enough to do this, and we can’t wait another 43 years to have another No 1. If it comes to pass we don’t make another record, then I can rest easily knowing we finished things properly with 13.”
Moonstruck was just on my local PBS station and I was struck again by what a wonderful film it is. Simply glorious. Lovely screenplay and charismatic performances from everyone, especially Cher and Olympia Dukakis. One of my all-time favorites. It should have won the Best Picture Oscar over The Last Emperor.
Fonda shared the personal story at an event celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Rape Treatment Center, which provides free treatment for sexual assault victims. She vowed to support efforts to combat the 'epidemic' of sexual violence. BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Jane Fonda told an audience of activists and philanthropists that her mother had been sexually abused as a child before eventually committing suicide at 42. Fonda shared the personal story at an event celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Rape Treatment Center, which provides comprehensive free treatment for sexual assault victims. She hosted the Rape Foundation’s annual fundraising brunch Sunday at billionaire Ron Burkle’s Greenacres estate in Beverly Hills. Fonda said that while writing her memoirs, she reviewed her mother’s medical records and discovered she had been sexually abused when she was 8 years old. Frances Ford Seymour committed suicide when Fonda was 12. “The minute that I read that, everything fell into place,” Fonda said from a small stage set up in Burkle’s sprawling backyard. “I knew why the promiscuity, the endless plastic surgery, the guilt, the inability to love or be intimate, and I was able to forgive her and forgive myself.” She said sexual violence is “epidemic,” vowing, “I will support the Rape Treatment Center for the rest of my life.” Lily Tomlin introduced Fonda, her “9 to 5” co-star and longtime friend. David Schwimmer and Eric McCormack also spoke during the luncheon, where guests included Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum and Sam Waterson. Gail Abarbanel, founder of the Rape Treatment Center and president of the Rape Foundation, introduced several rape survivors, including the mother of the victim of the 2012 Steubenville High School assault in Ohio. She noted her daughter’s bravery in pressing charges against her attackers — beloved star football players who had the support of the community. Schwimmer and McCormick asked the deep-pocketed in the crowd for their support, and five people — including Burkle — spontaneously gave $100,000 to help the Rape Treatment Center continue to offer free medical, psychological and legal services to children and adults. The Rape Foundation also provides free training for first responders and sexual assault prevention programs nationwide.
The justices, who will meet in a closed-door conference on Monday, will consider whether to hear any of three same-sex marriage lawsuits during the next term, which officially starts Oct. 6. If they decide to review one or more of the cases, a ruling could be reached by July on whether same-sex marriage must be allowed nationwide. If they choose not to hear the cases, the decision would allow gay nuptials in the ten states covered by the three lawsuits. The court could also wait for a circuit court to disagree with the others and support the state bans. The justice have until January 2015 to make their decision.

I come from a Southern family with an actual tradition of what you call witchcraft. Ask my any question you like. It's not a religion. I'm very confused by all these people who call themselves wiccans and witches because what they do is in no way similar to what my family does. You might be shocked but my family never referred to it as witchcraft and we don't actually call ourselves witches. We don't really have a name for it. It's just what you do. If you got a problem you need help with then you go do some work (what you call spells) and that's that. I have heard the term worker applied to us before. Like, "she's a worker". It's usually applied to those in our family who take on paying clients. But not everyone in my family does. We use a lot of Christian stuff. Like using the bible, especially the Psalms. We go out in nature an gather what we need and we use what we got around the house. I will shop at these wiccan stores for supplies but most of my family does not and would rather pick up what they need from grocery stores or Walmart. We do it all. We do what needs to be done. I don't really like labels but I guess you would describe us as doing white and black magic. We don't really set out to harm innocent people but only use the darker aspects against our enemies who wish us evil and who try to destroy us. That's about it as an introduction. I just want people to know that we exist. We're out there and my family isn't the only ones. If you want to post your questions I will try to answer as best as I am able.
Do you think they will have children? Not necessarily children that she would carry herself, I’m thinking she might be too old, but I could them going the surrogate route. They would have some beautiful kids.

Kuntal Patel tells court she suffered violent abuse and was left devastated by mother’s interference over her love life A woman accused of a murder plot inspired by the TV drama Breaking Bad wept as she told how her “controlling” mother beat her. Kuntal Patel, 37, allegedly tried to kill her magistrate mother, Meena, by spiking her Diet Coke with abrin after she forbade her to marry her boyfriend, Niraj Kakad. Taking to the witness box for the first time on Monday, Patel dabbed tears away from her eyes with a handkerchief as she told how her mother slapped her and called her a “fucked-up-brain girl”. Wearing a blue floral shirt and black trousers, and her voice barely above a whisper, she told Southwark crown court in London: “I couldn’t understand how or why my mother was behaving like this. It was not the mother I had always known who loved and cared for me. I just couldn’t understand her reaction to everything.” Patel, a graphic designer, said that when she told her mother Kakad had described her as controlling, she erupted in fury and beat her. She said: “I think for her that was a sign of him being disrespectful to her.” Patel said her mother “started slapping” her “on and off”. She lived with her mother and younger sister, Poonam, in Plaistow, east London, where her mother kept tabs on her “24/7”, jurors heard. Patel said she was unhappy about her looks, confiding in a friend that she felt like an “overweight buffalo”, and had never had a boyfriend. She turned to the Asian dating website Shaadi.com to find a man she could marry and have children with – but her “manipulative” mother even wrote Patel’s online dating profile for her. When she struck up a relationship with Kakad, her mother quickly turned sour and tried to break them up, it is claimed. When Kakad, who lived in Arizona in the US, flew out to see Patel in June 2012, her mother wanted to “check him out” before she met him in person herself, jurors heard. Peter Rowlands, defending, asked Patel: “Did your mum always know where you were 24/7?” Speaking in a quiet voice, Patel replied: “Yes.” Rowlands added: “Every minute of every day?” She replied: “Yes.” She said that despite being a grown adult, her mother expected her to “abide by” her rules, and let her meet Kakad before she did. Rowlands said: “Before you clapped eyes on him [Kakad] yourself, your mother wanted to check him out and see him first?” Patel replied: “That’s right. I know the way Niraj was, he wasn’t too happy about that. I felt that was a bit awkward for him. He wanted to see me first and then my mother.” She said she respected her mother’s views. “I knew she was just frightened and we didn’t have much family support and I knew that as a mother she was worried about me,” she said. But she was left “devastated” at her mother’s interference in her relationship. As Kakad went back to the US, Patel said she slumped into depression. She said: “I was just crying. I wasn’t eating properly I wasn’t sleeping too well, just genuinely feeling more and more depressed.” Last December, she allegedly bought a deadly dose of abrin off the “dark web” which she slipped into her mother’s drink to kill her. But her mother survived. Patel denies trying to murder her mother, who sits on the bench at Thames magistrates court, and acquiring a biological agent or toxin. She has pleaded guilty to two counts of attempting to acquire a biological agent or toxin last December. In another fit of rage Patel’s mother beat and threw slippers at her two daughters, jurors heard. But Patel said she was “too embarrassed” and “ashamed” to tell her Kakad about the violent abuse. At one point she told a friend in an email: “I wish I was dead or my mum dies I hate her so much”, the court heard. The trial continues.

Does she live, or does she die?
I actually think it's about 90%
Is anyone else following this case? I don't think their person of interest did it. Nursing assistant who's been communicative and open talking to police so far. I believe a different person may have picked her up in a car. Sad, this could have happened to anyone. I hope she's found alive but it's not looking good. There have also been four other female students that have gone missing over the years.
It starts tonight (7/13). From Guillermo del Toro and the guy who does Bate Motel. Starring Corey Stoll, the man with the biggest dildo collection I've ever seen! I'm interested. It's a vampire story that's NOT about some kind of love triangle.
He has gotten do much hate lately and many saying he has gamed the system and cracked the code which has ruined Jeopardy. Is what he's doing really that bad? He also has some fans who are all aboard the Chu Chu Train.
from towleroad Minnesota Police have released more photos of the man wanted in the murder earlier this month of his ex-boyfriend and former business associate. Lyle "Ty" Hoffman is the prime suspect in the killing of Kelly Phillips (right), an LGBT Minnesota activist and executive. Kelly-phillips-from-facebookSee the Minnesota Department of Public Safety website for more information and new photos of Hoffman. Meanwhile, thanks to many of Phillips' friends, the reward money offered by Crime Stoppers of Minnesota has increased to $10,000. One of those friends has pleaded for help in locating Hoffman: “The appeal I would make would be to the broader public. People don’t disappear in thin air, this execution happened at 8:40 in the morning along a busy interstate at a busy location. The car has been recovered, somebody knows something,” Tober said. “Our appeal is for people to be active, to be aware and to help.” Hoffman's sister has also asked for her brother to turn himself into police custody. Her message to him via an interview with FOX-9: "Turn yourself in. I can't imagine what Kelly's parents are going through -- family, friends. Please come forward. We're here to support you through it. We love you. We're family." According to the Star Tribune, Hoffman may be using apps to hide out. "...he may be relying on social media to find shelter while on the run. The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office released a 'wanted' poster Thursday that says 44-year-old Lyle 'Ty' Hoffman could be evading capture by using Craigslist and dating apps such as Grindr and Scruff." If you have any information about Hoffman's whereabouts, call 911 or Crime Stoppers of Minnesota's toll free number at 1 (800) 222-8477. local news vid at link

They are disgusting offal that was once considered unfit for human consumption. The poor took to it and then companies realized they could make money off of it. However, the problem is they aren't truly tasty on their own and must be smothered in sauce to be eaten. I refuse to eat them.

It is just months since same sex-marriage became legal in the UK, a landmark ruling that David Cameron claimed sent the message that that people are equal “whether gay or straight”, but despite the passing of this liberating law, 16 per cent of people – almost one in six – think that gay sex should be made illegal. A new survey of British sexual behaviour, which used a sample of 1,052 UK adults and carried out by The Observer, found this conservative sentiment peaks in London and the south-east, where 21 per cent of people think gay sex should be illegal. The data shows that attitudes have been becoming increasingly liberal however, as the proportion of people who think that homosexual sex should be illegal has dropped by eight per cent since 2008, when The Observer last carried out the survey. The amount of people who believe that same-sex couples should be able to get married has risen significantly in the last six years from 53 per cent to 63 per cent, while 61 per cent of people now support the right for same-sex couples to adopt children. The nation’s sex drive has also been dropping overall; on average, Brits have sex four times a month, but the rise in people not having sex at all in a given month (one in three) has brought the average down from people in the UK having sex nearly seven times a month. But for some it is the little things that matter the most: one in five men are unhappy with the size of their penis, and the proportion of people happy with their endowment has shrunk from 86 per cent in 2008 to 79 per cent today.

Microsoft’s former chairman Bill Gates was at the top of the list for the 21st year in a row. The nation's richest have gotten so wealthy that it now takes a net worth of $1.3 billion to secure a spot. It's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to make the Forbes 400 list of America's wealthiest. At $1.55 billion, the minimum net worth to be included this year was so high that 113 U.S. billionaires were left off. It was, in fact, the highest price of entry since the business magazine started tracking wealth in the U.S. in 1982. Microsoft's former chairman Bill Gates unsurprisingly clocked in as the richest American for the 21st consecutive year with $81 billion. His pal, Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett was runner-up — as he has been since 2001 — with an accumulated fortune of $67 billion. Larry Ellison's success as the founder and CEO of software firm Oracle locked in the No. 3 spot with $50 billion — followed by the Koch brothers, Charles and David, who both raked in a whopping $42 billion apiece. Christy Walton may be the co-chair of the Children's Scholarship Fund, but she’s also the richest woman in the world because of her connection to Wal-Mart. She married into the family of Sam Walton — who founded the big-box retailer — and inherited her husband's fortune when he died in a plane crash. As expected, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg secured his place on the list with $35 billion. Ever the businessman, Bloomberg returned to run the company that bears his name less a year out of office. Facebook wunderkind Mark Zuckerberg's collection of cash skyrocketed to $34 billion, a $15 billion increase since last year, making him this year's bigger dollar gainer. Still, he was a spot shy of the top 10. Another young businessperson, Stanford University dropout Elizabeth Holmes, 30, is among the most interesting newcomers to the list. She founded blood testing company Theranos, which has an estimated value of $9 billion. This makes her the world's youngest self-made female billionaire. Top 10 1. Bill Gates $81 billion 2. Warren Buffett $67 billion 3. Larry Ellison $50 billion 4. Charles Koch $42 billion 4. David Koch $42 billion 6. Christy Walton & family $38 billion 7. Jim Walton $36 billion 8. Michael Bloomberg $35 billion 9. Alice Walton $34.9 billion 10. S. Robson Walton $34.8 billion
The £3,200-a-night canal-front hotel's location ensures complete privacy with the only entrance being by waterway Captivating, breathtakingly beautiful, architecturally inspiring - it’s hard to capture the essence of Venice in one word. Perhaps the first and most fitting description is the epitome of romance. Venice has long been known as a city synonymous with romance. British poet Arthur Symons once said ‘A realist in Venice would become a romantic by mere faithfulness to what he saw before him.’ Thus it comes as no surprise that George Clooney and his fiancée, British lawyer Amul Alamuddin have chosen the 7 star Aman Canal Grande Hotel as the location for their celebrity-studded wedding this weekend. Built in 1550, the palazzo has an inherently regal heritage and was part of Vera Papadopoli Alborandini’s dowry when she married Count Giberto Arrivabene at the end of the 19th century. Today, the palace is owned by her grandson and the palazzo-turned-hotel was opened last year after a spectacular restoration. The Aman Canal Grande’s ambiance is more reflective of a royal residence than a hotel as its location ensures complete privacy with the only entrance being by waterway. The £3,200-a-night canal-front hotel which features classic frescos, plush furniture and high ceilings of a long-forgotten era of exuberance, will welcome the couple and their guests, who are thought to include 150 prominent members of Hollywood and the art world such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Andrea Bocelli, Lana del Rey, Bono and Cindy Crawford.

Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt has given an interview detailing the 'brutal' rivalry between the search engine and rival Apple Competition between Google and Apple is more brutal than ever, and is the "defining fight of the computer industry", according to Eric Schmidt. In an interview with Bloomberg, the Google executive chairman said the fierce rivalry benefited billions of global consumers. "In fact I would say that this brutal competition between Apple and Google over Android and iOS has enormous benefits for consumers worldwide," he said. "If you look at the innovation on the Apple side and on the Google side, that competition which I think is the defining fight of the computer industry today, it benefits global at the billions of people level." Schmidt pulled no punches when asked about how he felt about seeing the huge queues outside Apple stores as customers eagerly waited for the new iPhone, stating "Samsung had these products a year ago", but refused to elaborate. Of the global smartphone market, Schmidt explained Google's strategy as one of mass penetration. Android currently holds around 84.7 per cent of the market, compared to Apple's 11.7 per cent. Windows Phone 8, BlackBerry OS and other operators make up around 3.6 per cent. "The fact of the matter is you can make a small market share with a lot of profits, or you can make the same amount of money with a much larger market share, and lesser profits. We go for volume in our strategies," he said. The rivalry between Apple and Google was more brutal than ever before, he added. "It's more brutal in the sense the margins are very tough for the operators, the handset manufacturers; and the benefits to the consumer of having these products dropping... It's always good to have more competitors, but trust me, between Apple and Google you're seeing enormous, enormous racing." Schmidt and former senior vice president Jonathan Rosenberg gave the interview to promote their book How Google Works, covering corporate culture, strategy and innovation at the search engine.

It’s a long way from Greendale. A depressed, alcoholic New York postman appeared in court last week accused of hoarding more than a tonne of undelivered mail over the past decade. Joseph Brucato, a Vietnam War veteran who is 67 years old, was arrested on Wednesday after a fellow postal worker spotted stacks of letters and packages in his personal car, a Mitsubishi Galant, which he is not permitted to use for postal deliveries. Mr Brucato subsequently admitted that he had stashed more letters in his work locker and at the Brooklyn apartment that he shares with his wife and child, where postal investigators later discovered some 40,000 items dating back to at least 2005. Officials put the weight of the trove at 2,500lbs (1.1 tonnes), adding that this was a “conservative estimate”. According to court documents, Mr Brucato was hired as a postman in 2001 and had been delivering mail along the same Brooklyn route for the past 11 years. He was not discriminatory in his habits, purloining second-class and special-delivery items alike. His landlord told the New York Post that it had taken postal agents five hours to remove the accumulated hoard of post from the apartment. When investigators confronted Mr Brucato, he reportedly confessed that “on some days” he failed to deliver the post on his route “for various personal reasons.” In court, his lawyer said Mr Brucato suffered from depression and alcoholism. A judge released him pending a court hearing, on condition that he “abstain from excessive alcohol consumption” in the meantime. Mr Brucato, who has been suspended by the US Postal Service without pay, could face up to five years in prison if convicted. The Postal Service has said it will attempt to see that the 40,000 undelivered letters finally make it to their intended recipients. Mr Brucato is not the first New York postie to be caught neglecting his duties. In March, 24-year-old Patrick Paskett, of Long Island, was arrested for throwing more than 1,000 items of post into rubbish bins along his route so that he wouldn’t have to go to the trouble of delivering them.

The couple's song 'Holy Grail' helped fan the flames of gossip over their rumored marital problems. The celebrity-studded concert in Central Park on Saturday, which also featured actors like Jessica Alba, Ryan Reynolds and Olivia Wilde, aims to end extreme poverty on the planet by 2030 by getting citizens involved. At the Global Citizen Festival on Central Park’s Great Lawn, before 60,000 New Yorkers, headliner Jay brought out his wife as an unannounced guest toward the end of the night to perform a song guaranteed to get tongues wagging. The two rendered “Holy Grail,” a depiction of troubled love, in the context of addictive fame, with Beyoncé playing the saddened party. “Oh, that’s real life,” Jay said as the song ended. The scene played right into the hands of all those who’ve been speculating about the state of their marriage for months now. Jay’s performance also must have raised eyebrows for home viewers: The NBC censor apparently snoozed through f-bombs, “bitches” and “n” words. Together, the details lent a note of odd intrigue to an event otherwise devoted to unflinching positivity. “Global Citizen” has as its considerable goal to end extreme poverty on the planet by 2030. It aims to do so by getting citizens to urge world leaders to address related issues of vaccines, education and sanitation. To rally the masses, organizers have been convening annual, all-star concerts in Central Park since 2012. For its third birthday, the fest embraced a far wider world of sound than before. For the first time, it boasted a rap superstar (Jay Z), a country staple (Carrie Underwood) and a fixture from the demimonde of electronic dance music (Tiesto). To this, the show added pop acts like No Doubt and fun., as well as the pan-genre band The Roots. Also taking part were guest stars Sting and Alicia Keys. The sprawling show also drew names from the worlds of acting, politics and activism. Presentations and speeches were delivered by Jessica Alba, Ryan Reynolds, Olivia Wilde and others. As always, the event coincided with the United Nations General Assembly meeting, which explains the participation of dignitaries like the Prime Ministers of scores of countries from India to Norway. Though the concert was free, the 60,000 fans gathered could only garner tickets by pledging to do various good deeds through the Global Citizen website. Actions ranged from signing petitions to tweeting at world leaders to taking part in tutorials on the central subject at hand. Brian Palmer travelled to the show from Massachusetts, as he did last year. Palmer said he performed the maximum number of actions on the site to get a ticket because he “wanted to spread awareness for a good cause. Even if it cost money, I would have donated for a ticket,” he said. “It makes people listen.”

In the dumpster, there’s only an eighth inch of steel separating us from the motion of the outside world. That’s part of the magic. Camping is the only thing I can compare it to, though even that doesn’t quite capture the experience — it’s the difference between pitching a tent in the middle of Union Square and unrolling a sleeping bag in the Rockies. Still, the experience shouldn’t be over-glamorized. A few months ago, when the dumpster was moved to a public plaza for a festival, we woke to zippers sliding and the unmistakable sound of piss trickling down the outer wall, just above our pillows (“Dude, I can’t hold it. Is anyone around?”). Jeff laughed from inside his sleeping bag while I fired off obscenities and barreled my fist against the metal. To no avail — the bar-hoppers were either too hammered to register the noise or too sober to accept the possibility that a human might be inside. Fooling around is also more complicated than it used to be. We rarely fight, but when we do, we’re forced to choose our battlegrounds carefully. My place is usually out and the dumpster doesn’t work either — it’s impossible to take anything seriously in a one-room box that doesn’t even have a proper door. If a fight needs to be had, we usually end up hashing it out in the relative privacy of a car in a parking lot. I’ve cried my fair share of tears parked between two yellow lines.

Lord help us !!! *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** In a newly-released statement, Al Sharpton announced that he and his organization, the National Action Network, were “engaged in immediate conversations with the White House on deliberations over a successor whom we hope will continue in the general direction of Attorney General [Eric] Holder.” To be clear, as he told BusinessInsider, he’s not actually picking picking the next candidate for Attorney General. “We did not say we are in the decision making,” he told them in an update. “We are in conversation to reach out to them to have meetings about what we want to see in a successor.” In his statement, Sharpton called the outgoing AG’s tenure “more than exemplary,” and he was “proud [but] disappointed” to hear about his resignation, initially reported earlier this year. “We are proud that he has been the best Attorney General on civil rights in U.S. history and disappointed because he leaves at a critical time when we need his continued diligence most,” Sharpton said, citing his work in the Ferguson shooting aftermath, upholding voter rights, and curbing an excessive use of police force. ” Policing of Americans is the critical challenge of today, especially Blacks and Browns in particular,” he added.We will aggressively pursue the Justice Department’s involvement in dealing with these matters in his remaining days and in the days ahead of his successor.” Sharpton hosts a nightly political talk show on MSNBC.

Seriously, the funniest post. The one that made you completely lose it. I'll go first. The funniest post I ever read was of a woman here who recounted her memory of losing her virginity. It was her Quinceanera, the Hispanic party celebrating a girl's 15th birthday. Her mother made her wear an elaborate dress. However, she failed to mention one important detail prior to diving into her sexcapade. She proceeded to tell of how the boy and her snuck away and how they made out. Then she said he slipped his hand down her diaper and began to finger her. Yep. She just nonchalantly stated that she was wearing a diaper and the guy reached his hand into it and fingered her pussy. She forgot to mention that she was forced to wear a diaper because of the dress. I lost it. I spit my drink. I was laughing so hard I started seeing stars and got dizzy. I didn't stop laughing until maybe 30-40 minutes later, with repeat rounds of laughter every time I thought about the diaper for days afterwards.

During his speech on Friday at the Values Voter Summit, former Senator and Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum claimed that “the West” was in an “existential fight” against the forces of “radical Islam.” Unlike fellow Values Voter Summit speaker Michele Bachmann (R) — who urged President Barack Obama to go to war with all of Islam — Santorum limited his criticism to those Muslims who were rightly hesitant about modernity. Still, he noted, there is “a fundamental foundational problem in Islam of embracing issues of freedom of conscience and religious persecution.” “Christendom [once] expanded by the sword, that doesn’t happen anymore,” he continued, but “you don’t have any Baptist ministers going on jihad.” “The Western world,” Santorum said, “has come to terms with religious liberty, freedom of conscience, and that persuasion is the way to spread the faith.” But the president and those who believe that not all Muslims are fundamentalists were not Santorum’s only targets. He also called out Kentucky Senator Rand Paul (R) in all but name, saying. that “clearly, there are people out there who are trying to advocate for us to take a more limited view of what our role should be internationally, both from the standpoint of our engagement in foreign policy as well as our military strength.” However, he added, “there is a difference between limited government and small government. I believe in limited government. I believe in small government in some areas but I don’t believe in small government in every area. There are some areas the government needs to be big and robust and one of them is defense.” Santorum finished fourth in the Values Voter Summit presidential straw poll, behind Texas Senator Ted Cruz, neurosurgeon and Fox regular Ben Carson, and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee.

George Eads will take a leave of absence from the long-running drama after engaging in a heated exchange with one of the show's writers, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The actor, who has played Nick Stokes since the series premiered in 2000, will appear in the first three episodes of CSI's upcoming 14th season. Producer CBS Television Studios declined to reveal a date for his return but said he would be back later this season. "George Eads will not appear in several episodes during the first half of the season. We look forward to him returning to CSI very soon," a rep for CBS TV Studios said in a statement to THR. The actor signed on to return as a regular along with the rest of the cast when CBS renewed the series in March. His absence, sources say, is not considered an attempt to renegotiate his contract. Eads -- and co-star Jorja Fox -- were both briefly fired from CSI in 2004 after a short-lived salary standoff with the network and studio. Instead, Eads was unhappy with the creative direction of his character, sources tell THR, and clashed with an eight-months-pregnant co-writer of a recent episode. Word of the incident is said to have gotten back to showrunner Carol Mendelsohn and resulted in a meeting that ended with Eads threatening to quit. A rep for Eads declined to comment. Eads is one of only three actors who have been with CSI from the start (Paul Guilfoyle and Eric Szmanda are the others). Fox left and later returned to the show. Sources tell THR that Eads' absence will be addressed in the fourth episode of the season when Catherine (Marg Helgenberger, who will reprise her role in the landmark 300th episode) hand-picks his character to receive special training at Quantico. CSI returns Sept. 25 on CBS.

Speaking at the Values Voter Summit in the US capital, Palin said: “Truth was an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue”. The White House is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Number 1400, a number of blocks away, is occupied by the 5 star Willard Hotel. The former Governor of Alaska made the error in a speech that accused President Obama of “telling lies” after speaking at length about the abuse of truth in US politics. Palin later poked fun at herself on Twitter, writing: “Doggone it! That explains why my Christmas cards keeps (sic) getting returned!” The politician made headlines with her infamous gaffes during the 2008 presidential election when she supported John McCain on the campaign trail. Palin appeared to be unsure of what the role of vice president would entail, and could not name any newspaper she read when questioned by a reporter. In 2011, she said that the US should stand with “our North Korean allies” in a radio interview, appearing to confuse North and South Korea. Most recently, she called fellow ex-governor Jesse Ventura a “jackass” and used an analogy comparing Obama to a domestic abuser harming his “battered wife”, the US.

Detroit school to review its ‘pick and choose’ morality clause after Barb Webb was fired after revealing she was pregnant A Catholic high school outside Detroit, where a gay teacher was fired after revealing she was pregnant, has said it plans to review its morality clause governing employee behavior after a backlash against the decision.. The teacher, Barb Webb, taught chemistry for nine years at Marian high school, a Catholic high school for girls in Bloomfield, Michigan. Webb, 33, says she told the administration last month she was 14 weeks pregnant and offered to take a leave of absence until after her child was born. She says she was told she could resign or be fired. She chose the latter. Webb said she does not believe her firing was strictly based on the fact that she is gay, but that it was because she became pregnant outside of a traditional marriage. The school’s morality clause, which all teachers are expected to sign, is “quite vague”, Webb said, in that it only states that teachers and other employees must not publicly display or teach anything that contradicts Catholic doctrine. Legal experts say such clauses can often mask unlawful discrimination. Webb said the administration has actively hired teachers knowing they are gay, and are aware of other teachers who have gone through divorce. She says she was terminated only because her pregnancy would become visible. “It’s pick and choose” regarding what constitutes morality, she said. “The administration hired people knowing they were gay but knowing they could choose to keep it private. Unfortunately, when you want to start a family, you can’t keep it quiet forever.” The Guardian had not received a response to requests for a statement from administrators at Marian high school by the time of publication. But earlier this week, Marian parents received a letter from Sister Mary Jane Herb, president of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Monroe, Michigan, a group of nuns that founded the school in 1959. She did not mention Webb by name but said that her organisation would work with the school’s executive committee to “re-examine policies and procedures in light of Catholic identity.” Barb Webb Barb Webb (right) with her Kristen Lasecki. Photograph: Barb Webb “Pope Francis has brought a sense of hope to our lives and encourages us to look at our church with new eyes. No, it is not likely that doctrine will change, however the Pope emphasizes that the values of mercy, inclusion and compassion need to be included in our response to complex situations,” Herb wrote. The letter was posted on a Facebook supporting Webb. A spokesperson for Herb said she would not comment further on the record. Webb’s firing has ignited an international protest movement online. A petition to ask Marian “to rethink [its] policies and start supporting LGBT staff and students” has gathered nearly 70,000 signatures and another effort to raise money for a diversity program within the school has raised about $3,600. Webb, who is married to a woman, said she was not interested in pursuing legal action at the moment, but wants to first wait to see what effect the letter from Herb will have, it any, on the school policy. She is currently substitute teaching and says her primary interest is to raise awareness, not to get her old job back. “I just want people to know this is going on,” she said. Kingsley Brown, a law professor at Wayne State University in Detroit, who specialises in employment law and discrimination issues, said that Webb was “clearly discriminated against” because she was pregnant outside a traditional marriage, and not solely because she is gay. However he added that morality clauses protect religious organisations from such actions. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Michigan is one of 29 states that do not prohibit employment discrimination based on sexual orientation, which means that even if Webb sought to prove she was fired due to her sexuality, the high school would not have been in the wrong to do so.
I love the woman (I'm guess I'm the only one here) but for someone with a dance scholarship, she has always seemed like a sloppy dancer, especially in her early years. When she looks good, she's usually doing very slow, simple moves. I don't expect her to be great now given her age, but I remember being surprised at how simplistic her dancing was in videos like Lucky Star.

Generally singers have years of working at clubs and such before recording their first albums. They can pick from numerous songs they wrote over the years of waiting. Subsequent albums suffer because songs were only written over short periods of time. Such singers I can think of include Tracy Chapman, J Lo, Jody Watley, Mariah Carey. Others?

Openly gay actor/screenwriter Wentworth Miller will join the CW's ever-expanding roster of gay and possibly-gay actors when he joins "The Flash" this fall. "The Flash" is an "Arrow" spinoff and stars Grant Gustin as the titular superhero from the DC comics universe. Wentworth will play a villain (of course). In other Wentworth news, he is interviewed in latest issue of Details magazine and has the following to say: [quote] DETAILS: Last year you also publicly came out as gay. Was a burden lifted? Wentworth Miller: I feel more fully expressed. After Prison Break, I came to grips with the fact that my public persona was in misalignment with how I actually felt. I was out to a handful of people in my twenties, and once I hit 30, I was out to family and friends. But professionally, I was feeding a fantasy. I created this air of "We don't address that thing." [quote] DETAILS: Do you ever regret lying in interviews by saying "I'm not gay"? Wentworth Miller: My face was on billboards, and I thought it was my job to act a certain way. But I think audiences knew to a certain degree.

I don't get it. How does she look so good? She's in her 60s. If it were just plastic surgery, why don't other celebrities who are decades younger look as good? She's hardly A-list so it's not like she can afford better surgeons than, say, Madonna. Please explain.

Okay, the show needs overhauling. I've been reading a lot of viewer reactions, and what they want to see for the new season. The biggest: they want Jonathan Groff and his character taking a back seat. They want Russell Tovey's character to become the main focus. Groff is taking a hit for making his character even more unlikable than he's already written.
I was visiting family for winter break in Los Angeles, this was about five years ago. I was heading to the bathroom on the second floor of my aunt's house when I saw my cousin, April, on the stairs. April was four and very animated. She was busy making funny faces while sitting on the stairs. I asked her what she was doing. She said, "I'm copying the lady with the braid." I looked around, there was no one else but us. I asked, "where is the lady, April?" She pointed to a beam running parallel to the stairwell. I asked April, "what is the lady doing?" She said, "makin' funny faces." I smiled and started walking up the stairs again when April said something that stopped me in my tracks. April, "her braids is around her neck." I turned back and asked April to repeat herself. April pointed,"the lady is hanging by her braid... She's making funny faces." Then April started making a face which I then realize was it someone gasping for air.

About a man who's married to a woman with a child on the way who falls in love with a man who goes on to be a ghost. It's not a horror film. It's not over-the-top. It's presented as though it could realistically happen. Has anyone seen this? Pretty damn original.
I know this has probably been a topic here before but I wanted to open this thread anyway…. Antenna TV has been running Maude and just re-ran the end of the show this week (and is now starting with Season1 again) so it's the first time in a long time that the later seasons have been shown. Has anyone else been watching? I really liked Mrs. Naugatuck, wondering why they wrote her out…it seemed like in the last season they were trying to make the show "younger". Any favorite episodes? (Oh, and PS - I love the Golden Girls too but there's been about ten jillion GG threads. Would love to hear from ppl who have seen this show - which is my favorite of Bea's.)
I wanna see it right it now!

I've never noticed spontaneous palm bruises before and I have had three in the last month. For no reason at all, at least that I am aware. They don't hurt, but it's unnerving to notice a bruise on a palm or finger and you have no recollection of hitting it or jamming it or smashing it. And no, I don't drink or drug so I *would* remember. I'm a young 60 and this has never happened before. Anyone else get unexplained palm bruises? Are they indicative of some dire disease that will cause some of you to ask for my stuff?
He's originally from Spokane, Washington, so I'm wondering whether this is a regionalism or simply a result of bad education. He's the first person I've known from eastern Washington. Beyond what we've discussed and some Google searches I've done, I don't know much about the region or its particular culture. What are some speech patterns specific to the region? He also writes, but does not say, things like "going dinner" instead of "going to dinner". Is that typical of that region? Thank you.

Would someone make a mint coming up with a gay combat/action game?
... at least that's the impression they're leaving. I saw an interview with Alison Arngrim where she talked about how she bonded with Melissa Gilbert, but MSA had a "prom queen" attitude and they were never close. Didn't think much of it till I was at the library today and they had Melissa Gilbert's autobiography, PRAIRIE TALE, on display. I snapped it up to see what she had to say about the other Melissa, and it was even more dismissive of MSA. Gilbert said they didn't have any common ground, then dropped the topic. Later in the book she mentions Alison Arngrim joining the cast and said she pulled her aside to tell her "Everybody here is really nice, except one person who is really mean." (No names mentioned.) The last mention of MSA comes later, when Melissa Sue had to be 15 or 16 and Gilbert gets a whole meow-y paragraph about how much more "sophisticated" Melissa Sue was -- smoking cigarettes and drinking Tab (!) between takes. "Later she would go on to date Frank Sinatra Jr.," she mentions dismissively, and that's it for Melissa Sue. So: was Melissa Sue Anderson really the Little Cunt on the Prairie, or were Melissa Gilbert and Alison Arngrim ganging up on her, Mean Girls style?

Is he really? His fans and some of his "friends" keep saying that he is bisexual and very promiscuous with women, and only says that he is gay because he is HIV positive (which is a weird reason to call yourself gay, isn't it?).
I forgot for a moment that she's no longer with us. It truly is a magical, iconic song. It's up there with the classics by Dusty and Judy. I believe that Whitney could've made a comeback with the right material, even though her voice was perhaps not what it once was. Ella had some shining moments in her later years, even after her voice started to go. At first when I heard she had died, I couldn't believe it. Then I broke down in tears. I wept when Dusty and Ella died, too. I was a very young child when Judy left us, but I can remember going into my room and singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and the tears welled up in my eyes.

Who gets the most barely legal tail?
She is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 278 pounds. Her legs and arms are almost normal sized. Her butt and hips are normal. But Lord have mercy, her gunt! She can't even bend over to tie her shoes. She has a large tire of fat right below her boobs, then her waist cuts in rather abruptly, then she has this huge swollen gunt. My sis is disturbed by her body, especially the gunt because it is so disproportionate to the rest of her. She told me she doesn't know if she has any grey pubes because she hasn't seen her genitalia in years. Is there a diet just for gunts?
I hate, hate the baying sound of hounds and other hunting dogs. Horrible when they all get going. I absolutely love Australian shepherds but when you get several together they are awful too. My stupid, trashy bitch of neighbor has 5 shepherds in her yard cooped up and they go nuts on a regular basis. They are working dogs meant for a farm and are bored as shit so I don't blame them.
The singer was in the passenger seat of her ride as Remini drove when the car was hit from behind before the driver fled the scene. The Bronx came out in Jennifer Lopez Saturday when her "new whip" was rear-ended by a drunk driver. The "Booty" singer was riding in the passenger seat with her bestie, Leah Remini, behind the wheel when the intoxicated driver hit them from behind before fleeing the scene, law enforcement sources told TMZ. "Sitting at a light, Riding high right before some drunk fool rear ended us in my new whip!!!" the 45-year-old singer wrote on Instagram with a photo of her and the former "King of Queens" actress. While the gossip site reported two children were also in the vehicle, Lopez posted another Instagram photo showing her 6-year-old twins -- Emme and Max -- with Remini's 10-year-old daughter Sofia in the backseat. "These three cuties make my day!!" she captioned the sweet snapshot. "#Coconuts #Sofia #lunchwthekiddies #bigpimpin' #brooklynindahouse" They were riding along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and stopped at a light when the drunk driver in a small pickup truck hit them and took off. The "Jenny from the Block" singer apparently had a few choice words for him before one of the ladies called 911 to report the incident and described the driver and vehicle. Shortly after receiving the emergency call, officers located the driver nearby and it was determined that he was driving under the influence. The unnamed man was arrested for DUI and hit and run. No injuries were reported. "Thank god everyone ok!!!" Lopez said, adding, "#GRATEFUL #THANKYOUGOD #DontdrinkandDrive!!!! #cursedthatfoolout #theBronxcameout #dontmesswithmycocnuts #mamabear #leahstayedcalm #thatwasweird."

CBS has finally decided that it will back away from the liefest that was the October 27 report on Benghazi. Lara Logan appeared on CBS This Morning today to announce that CBS had been “misled,” and that a correction would be issued. We’ve all heard Dylan Davies’ riveting tale: He, as fictional superhero Morgan Jones, scaled a 12 foot wall. He heroically knocked a terrorist to the ground, fighting desperately to save his friends. This patriot even lied to his superiors to protect himself, as he was nut supposed to be at the compound that day. He even saw Chris Stephens in the hospital. It was truly a monumental story! In fact, it served to fuel right-wing nut job conspiracy theories very well:
All the money in the world at this point, and he still has to play these games. I wonder how much she's earning for all this?

The fashionista is on a journey to utilize her celebrity to bring change in the world through her work with the UNAIDS campaign. ‘I will do whatever I can to raise awareness.’ JOHN MINCHILLO/AP Fashion Designer Victoria Beckham speaks during a news conference after she is named an United Nation's Goodwill Ambassador during the 69th U.N. General Assembly at U.N. headquarters, Thursday. Victoria Beckham's fashion empire was put on the back burner for a good cause. The fashionista said she was "honored" to be named UN Goodwill Ambassador for its UNAIDS campaign Thursday. In her new post, Beckham, who ditched the opening of her first store in London to be at the event in New York City, had a clear message to share. "I am a mother and I am a woman," she said. "I will do whatever I can to raise awareness. I feel very passionate about this," the wife of former soccer star David Beckham and mother to their four children said. Her passion for the cause increased after visiting South Africa in February where she saw the reality of children stricken by the disease first-hand. "I recently visited South Africa and was so touched by the women I met and felt inspired," she recalled. "I came home and I knew I had to do something." After traveling to Cape Town on behalf of the Born Free initiative that focuses on issues of HIV's transmission from mothers to their children, Beckham used her power in fashion to raise money. She sold 600 items from her own personal wardrobe online. "It's taken me to get to 40 to realize I have a responsibility as a woman and as a mother," Beckham continued. "For some reason people will listen to me. This is the beginning of an incredible journey for me." This personal journey will soon take Beckham back to the country that left a lasting impact on her.

"I have people mentoring me," she said. "I am going back to South Africa in a few weeks and then further afield next year." Beckham is mom to sons, Brooklyn, Cruz, and Romeo, and daughter Harper. Her kids, she says, bring her closer to this personal quest she's on now. "I would do anything for my children and I think every woman has the right to health and every woman has the right to give their children a healthy future," she told the UN audience Thursday. Victoria Beckham and her daughter Harper Seven are seen arriving at the 'BONTON' store on May 4, 2013 in Paris, France. PAUL HUBBLE/FILMMAGIC Victoria Beckham and her daughter Harper Seven are seen arriving at the 'BONTON' store on May 4, 2013 in Paris, France. This isn't the first time Beckham has worked toward bringing more awareness to HIV and AIDS. "(Sir) Elton (John) is a very dear friend of mine and David's and we've been patrons of the Elton John Aids Foundation for 20 years so I have been working a lot with lots of AIDS charities," she detailed. "It's why I realize I have to step forward and do whatever I can do," Beckham added. "I want to get to know the women and understand them. It was life changing when I went to South Africa." That life-altering trip opened Beckham's heart and mind to utilizing her celebrity to make real change in the world. "Thank you for mentoring me through this," she said. "I have so much to learn, this is just the beginning for me."

Something incredible happened in 2012 when Wendy Williams expanded her Hot Topics on her syndicated talk show from a few minutes to 20 minutes. The live show produced and syndicated by Debmar-Mercury saw its ratings surge — a trend that has continued this season. Wendy Williams’ season premiere last week ranked No. 1 among women 25-54 with a 1.6 rating in local people meter markets. In 2012-13, Wendy’s live-plus-seven-day rating among women 25-54 was a 0.9, up from a 0.8 each season since it premiered in 2009. Last season, Wendy’s rating went up again, to a 1.1, a 22% year-over-year increase. The show’s executive producer, David Perler, says Hot Topics’ expansion has helped boost the show’s rating because the segment is about celebrity gossip, meaning it’s time sensitive. So, it works best on a live show like Wendy or Disney-ABC’s Live with Kelly & Michael or, years ago, Warner Bros.’ Rosie O’Donnell Show.

I realize that's many a gay man's dream: a super-tight butt to fuck. But for the first time in my 37-year-life as a sexually active guy, I'm discovering the downside. He and I are about the same build, although with one complicating factor: I've got a big cock. Not porn-star enormous, but approaching seven inches and fairly thick. But I've always had said cock, and never ever had a problem fucking guys with ease in the past. Certainly, there have been guys who were nervous at first, and consequently hard to fuck. But I always took it very, very slow and eventually they relaxed to a point where there wasn't a problem. Not so this time. And I've fucked this guy dozens of times. He says he's not nervous and really, REALLY loves getting fucked. We've tried nearly every position imaginable with lots of lube and foreplay, but without any luck. I've considered suggesting poppers, but that could only be a short-term solution. He says this has never been a problem in the past, and attributes this to the size of my cock. (He's got far less sexual experience than me because he came out relatively late in life: at age 55, so that may be why he's never experienced a big guy.) I would never, ever even suggest surgery to loosen him up, even if it was possible, because, well: how gross. So, Dataloungers, have you had this problem? Did you find a solution?
Out of America: After 21 years, she might like to retire, but that would probably let in a right-winger, so she feels she can't To start, a simple question: which is the most influential of the three branches of America's government, all "co-equal" according to the constitution? The obvious and correct answer is, of course, the presidency. In domestic policy the occupant of the White House may have less clout than a British prime minister, underpinned by the "elective dictatorship" of a parliamentary majority. But at home and abroad, the president remains the face of his country; by sheer force of personality, he can change history. But which branch comes next? Not Congress, divided against itself to the point of paralysis, the epicentre of the country's political dysfunction. The answer is the bit you tend to forget about: the judicial branch, or the Supreme Court. "Equal Justice Under Law," reads the inscription above the colonnade at the entrance to the Neoclassical building, majestic yet oddly modest too, that houses the court. It appears what it is meant to be: the embodiment of impartiality – as John Roberts, the current Chief Justice, puts it in baseball parlance, an umpire who merely "calls balls and strikes", handing down final judgment on what is in accordance with the constitution and what is not. But matters are no longer that simple. As gridlock has overtaken Congress, which is supposed to make the laws of the land, that role has slipped by default to the Supreme Court, whose members, once nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate, hold their critically important jobs for as long as they wish, unencumbered by the need for re-election, accountable only to the Almighty and themselves. Supposedly the court is above politics; in fact, it is now more political than ever, divided into what amount to Democratic and Republican factions, with the latter in a majority. The turning point was the Bush vs Gore case, when the court, not voters, decided the outcome of the 2000 presidential election. Even then, however, the link between the justices and the political party of the president who appointed them was understood, rather than trumpeted. But now truth has been spoken out loud, by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in the unlikely setting of an interview with Elle magazine. Ginsburg has been on the bench some 21 years, a pillar of the court's liberal (that is Democratic) bloc. Some fellow liberals have quietly urged her to resign while the going is good, with a Democrat in the White House who presumably would pick someone of similar persuasions to replace her. But she refuses, and with remarkable frankness told Elle her reason. "Who do you think President Obama could appoint at this very day? If I resign any time this year, he could not successfully appoint anyone I would like to see in the court." The Senate may have scrapped the filibuster for lower federal court appointments, she noted. "But it remains for this court. So anybody who thinks that if I step down, Obama could appoint someone like me, they're misguided." So she will soldier on, but her calculation may be wrong. If the Republicans claim a Senate majority and then win back the White House in 2016, Ginsburg's successor would be even less to her liking. And few seriously think she can hang on until 2020 or 2024, when a Democrat might win back the presidency. And so the current divide on the court will be perpetuated, as the very paralysis of Congress has made the two parties even more concerned with the balance of power within the judicial branch. Like their liberal counterparts, conservative justices will wait until a Republican is in the White House before they step down.

Please tell us about some odd occurrence or coincidence that sounds too crazy to be real...but it is. Back in the early 90s, I contacted this guy who had placed an ad in the local penny saver seeking to date other young gay guys. I left a message on the site's voicemail and he called me back. It turns out he lived in the same town in which I went to high school. We talked for quite a while and even decided that I would drive down and meet him for coffee the next weekend. We talked a bit about our jobs and he started describing his. He worked at the local newspaper in the distribution department. He told me he liked his job, but his boss was an awful fucking bitch. She was a total tyrant and made his life hell. He fucking hated her, He probably didn't notice, but I got a bit quiet when he mentioned where he worked, especially after ranting about his horrible boss...whom I knew very well, as she was my mother. Needless to say, I did not keep my date with him. I never told him why because I was not out to my mother yet. That Christmas I went back to visit my mom. I heard her telling my aunt about this little perverted fucker who worked for her, and mentioned the guy's name. Turns out he had molested the neighbor kid and was arrested and sent to jail. I just sat there for a few seconds and then had some more pumpkin pie.

Was wondering what the opinions are. Retin A works but you got to work yourself up to applying it every single night. A peel with glycolic acid is only done every few months or even longer. Both are said to work exactly the same, by sloughing off dead skin and revealing younger skin underneath. Retin A is also far more expensive. Which do you suggest and why? I kind of lean toward glycolic peel because when I am tired and want to go to bed, I want to go to bed, not start a nightly ritual before being able to sleep.
I woke up at a trick's house this morning famished so I went rummaging through his fridge and found bread inside. I've never seen anyone refrigerate bread before. It was just baffling. Wouldn't it get hard? I confronted him about it when he woke up and he said it keeps it fresh and keeps away mold. Is this true? He toasted some for me and it did taste okay with marmalade and farm-fresh butter. I couldn't tell the difference.
And I'm stuck in here until they're finished. The dude is a really noisy bottom - yelling and screaming and moaning. I have to be at work soon and have to take a shower, but I can't go out there while they're fucking. Help.
It’s possible that it occurs even more in homosexual relationships, data reveal. But victims are often hesitant to come forward for fear of being outed or blamed. It’s not just heterosexuals who live in fear of domestic abuse. Domestic violence occurs as much and possibly more among same-sex couples as among opposite-sex couples, according to a fresh look at past research. The study team can’t say why domestic violence may be more common among same-sex couples, but they suggest it may result from the added stress of being a sexual minority. “There are vulnerabilities that come with being in a homosexual relationship,” Richard Carroll told Reuters Health. “It can be as basic as someone not ready or willing to be open to their family or community that they’re in a homosexual relationship. The theory is that additional stressors can add to increased strain that leads to increased violence or abuse.” Carroll is a psychologist at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago and senior author of the review published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy. Domestic violence — sometimes called intimate-partner violence — has been studied since the 1970s, with most research focusing on women in opposite-sex relationships being abused by their male partners, Carroll and his coauthor write. Domestic violence can include physical, sexual and psychological harm caused by current or past relationship partners, they point out. According to Carroll, among the challenges that sometimes prevent researchers from collecting reliable data on domestic violence among same-sex couples is the partners’ reluctance to bring up the topic out of fear of being outed or blamed. “It’s not as easy for same-sex couples to be open about these things in the first place,” he said. A joint report from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that about 22% of women and about 7% of men reported being the victim of domestic violence. For the new review, the researchers searched databases of medical research for studies on the prevalence of domestic violence among same-sex couples. Based on the findings of four studies that had data on nearly 30,000 participants, they found that between one quarter and three quarters of lesbian, gay and bisexual people are the victims of domestic violence. Between one quarter and three quarters of lesbian, gay and bisexual people experience domestic abuse. RUDYANTO WIJAYA/GETTY IMAGES/ISTOCKPHOTO Between one quarter and three quarters of lesbian, gay and bisexual people experience domestic abuse. That rate is at least equal to the 25% of heterosexual women who experience domestic violence during their lifetimes. “I think taken together it seems pretty clear that the true prevalence may be higher for same-sex couples,” Carroll said. In addition to the added stress of being a sexual minority, another contributor to increased risk of domestic violence among same-sex couples could be that same-sex partners are unconsciously acting out an internalized homophobia they developed while being raised in a heterosexual society, Carroll added. As for who is at risk of being a victim, he said many of the risk factors are similar for same-sex and opposite-sex couples. They include prior exposure to domestic violence and drug use. "The good news is that I think the gay community has begun to address this over the past 10 years,” Carroll said. “There are certainly more resources for couples experiencing violence.” For same-sex couples experiencing domestic violence, Carroll said options for help may be limited outside of large cities, but they can always call The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). While Carroll believes most of the interventions and screenings used for domestic violence among heterosexual women can be applied to same-sex couples, he said there would need to be additional elements.

GAINESVILLE, Florida (KRON) — A Florida woman may pursue legal action against police and prosecutors after she spent more than a month in jail for possession of SpaghettiOs. Police say they arrested 23-year old Ashley Gabrielle Huff after they found a spoon covered with a suspicious residue inside the car she was riding in. From the beginning Huff insisted that she wasn’t using, selling, or making methamphetamines. The woman spent more than a month in jail while her attorney tried to arrange a plea bargain. That’s when the crime lab report came back confirming the spoon was encrusted with spaghetti sauce. She was then released from custody. Police say they were acting in good faith. Huff may now pursue legal action against the police departments, the jails, and the D.A.’s office for malicious prosecution and unlawful arrest.
There will be massive arguments, but I think a minimum wage of 22 would make the largest difference. September is the month for reflection..you will hear about people taking the one week food stamp pledge, and doing other things to raise awareness. [quote]You have inspired me. I am going to make a public pledge on Huffington Post that I will work with any food bank or charity in the US or Canada and do as many 12-hour cooking sessions as are needed, to continue to raise funds and awareness. I am not kidding. If you feed people and have the means or sponsors to put on an event like this and want my participation, you've got it. If you have an idea for a different event I can be helpful with or lend my participation to, let me know. I am open. The food stamp Chef is at it again, this time via Huffpost. I am no fan of Rachel Ray, but she is doing something good with this. Could you live on 4 bucks a day for food?
The world assumes everyone is straight until proven otherwise. Strangers will often say things like, "I bet your girlfriend picked out your clothes today," to a well-dressed man, never assuming he might be gay. Even a simple question like, "What did you do last weekend?" will make a gay man or lesbian wonder, Do I mention my sex-sex partner to this stranger? So how out are you to strangers? Do you go out of your way to make it known you're gay or do you just nod when the stranger assumes you're straight?
The actress, then 64-years-old, was said to have got plastic surgery to wow the musician, who reportedly told her that she "shouldn't have gone to the trouble" A new biography on the enigmatic David Bowie claims a famous female admirer was so drawn to him that she had plastic surgery to wow him – but was unfortunately rebuffed when he said he “only like[s] black women and Asian men”. Wendy Leigh’s release Bowie: The Biography says that in 1977, Elizabeth Taylor invited Bowie, a friend of hers, to meet another of her circle – Loretta Young. Oscar-winning actress Ms Young had a colourful and varied career and lifetime. In 1935 she gave birth to a secret love child conceived after she had an affair a then-married Clark Gable while they both filmed The Call of the Wild. In 1977 she was 64-years-old “still a great, if faded, beauty” and was “vibrant and vivacious and, despite her age, her sexual appetites remained undimmed,” Ms Leigh’s book outlines. It continues: “Moreover, her considerable carnal desires were now directed obsessively at David Bowie”. She begged her friend Ms Taylor to introduce her to him and when told that he wasn’t due in LA for the next few months, began “feverishly preparing herself for her first meeting with him”. Ms Taylor reportedly said that her friend had gone to all sorts of trouble getting into an exercise regime, having her hair done and some plastic surgery on her body and face before the day arrived.
What sort of plastic surgery have you had? Were you happy with the results?

John Edwards Trial: Testimony Reveals Elizabeth Edwards' Dramatic Confrontation With Husband Over Affair 05/2/12 GREENSBORO, N.C. — A former adviser to John Edwards recounted Wednesday how the former presidential candidate's now-deceased wife indignantly confronted her husband, baring her chest in front of staff members the day after a tabloid reported that he was cheating on her. During a session at Edwards' corruption trial that saw his 30-year-old daughter flee the courtroom in tears, Christina Reynolds described how a very upset Elizabeth Edwards stormed away from her husband in October 2007, then collapsed in a ball on the pavement outside a private airplane hangar. Reynolds and another woman guided the anguished wife into a nearby ladies room to compose herself, but she soon returned to the private hangar to again confront her husband. In front of several staff members, the woman who had endured grueling treatments for breast cancer took off her shirt and bra, exposing her chest. "'You don't see me anymore,'" Reynolds quoted Elizabeth Edwards as screaming. "He didn't have much of a reaction." As staffers scrambled to cover up Edwards' wife and huddle her into a car, Reynolds heard the Democratic candidate use a cell phone to call his wife's doctor to ask for help. Edwards then boarded a waiting jet and took off for his scheduled appearance in South Carolina, Reynolds said. She testified that Elizabeth Edwards had known about her husband's affair with Rielle Hunter before The National Enquirer made it public. Hers was the most stirring testimony of the day at Edwards' trial on corruption charges, as prosecutors worked to build a timeline of the affair and efforts to cover it up. Shortly before Reynolds began her account of what happened that day at the Raleigh airport, Edwards turned to his daughter Cate, a lawyer who has been seated in the front row for much of her father's trial. "I don't know what's coming," Edwards was heard saying. "Do you want to leave?" She responded to him in a whisper, grabbed her purse and walked out, wiping away tears. Edwards was heard saying, "Cate, Cate" as she left. She returned to court about a half hour later, after a brief recess. Shortly before her testimony about the airport argument, Reynolds recounted that Elizabeth Edwards asked her over to the couple's gated estate near Chapel Hill in the summer of 2007 to tell her that her husband had confessed to an affair the prior year. "I was very surprised by what she told me and I didn't want it to ever become public so the kids wouldn't have to know about it," the former aide said. Reynolds, now 37, had worked on John Edwards' successful U.S. senate campaign in 1998 and had quickly bonded with his wife. Both women grew up in military families and had moved around a lot as children. Reynolds worked as the research director and a senior communications adviser to the 2008 presidential campaign and recently joined the board of the educational foundation named for Elizabeth Edwards, who died in December of 2010. Edwards has pleaded not guilty to six counts related to campaign-finance violations. He faces up to 30 years in prison and $1.5 million in fines if convicted on all counts. At issue are payments from wealthy donors used to help keep his pregnant mistress out of public view. Edwards' attorneys have said he didn't know about the money.

I'm 23 and have had multiple strep throat infections which are a total pain in the ass in the past few years. I have no idea where I keep getting the strep from, the people around me are all healthy. I thought maybe it was hookups but even when I don't hookup I just get strep. I've noticed that my tonsils are very large, certainly larger than average, and confirmed by my doctor. No tonsil stones. I'm considering getting removed, but have heard it hurts like hell and I will be nursing scabs in the back of my throat for a week. Some docs have said that removing tonsils won't help, but people I've talked to have said they don't get sore throats/throat infections anymore after getting them removed. My doc said it's up to me. Have any of you gotten your tonsils removed as an adult? Why? How painful was it, how long was the recovery, and was it worth it? Thanks!

But it took 31 years for "Motown 25" to make it onto DVD, which will happen Tuesday when the historic broadcast is issued by TimeLife in both a three-disc set and six-disc deluxe version, with digitally restored video and a 5.1 surround mix. "Motown 25," celebrating the Detroit-born label's quarter-century anniversary, was taped at L.A.'s Pasadena Civic Auditorium in March 1983 and aired two months later for an NBC audience of 47 million. The two-hour program hit a cultural sweet spot, luring young viewers for Jackson and drawing Baby Boomers whose '60s nostalgia was kicking into high gear. Both audiences got what they wanted: Jackson, whose "Thriller" was taking over the world that spring, served up his now-iconic moonwalk, and a host of his former Motown colleagues performed vintage stuff: Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, the Supremes, the Temptations, the Four Tops. Today the notion of a "Motown family" is a staple of the Hitsville story. "Motown 25" helped cement that concept, says producer Suzanne de Passe.

(Photo: Elaine Lee ) "I don't think until 'Motown 25' the rest of the world really got to understand that — that regardless of anything else, the coming back together was … the bigger feeling of love and appreciation for what they had experienced together," says de Passe, then head of Berry Gordy Jr.'s Motown Productions. "It was like we all came back together for Thanksgiving dinner," says the Tops' Duke Fakir. The DVD set's bonus footage has its own charms, including little-seen rehearsals by Wonder and Gaye, who gamely endures a clunky stage lift before practicing his eloquent monologue and piano journey through black music history. Also included are taped roundtables with de Passe, director Don Mischer and artists, along with historical Motown featurettes. A DVD release was held up for years because of song and image license clearances, says de Passe, with TimeLife's muscle ultimately breaking the logjam. Also demanding input was Jackson's estate, because "they have a number of their own projects going and just didn't want to, I suspect, flood the marketplace," she says. With appearances by the likes of Adam Ant, DeBarge and host Richard Pryor, the show is as much a snapshot of 1983 as a celebration of Motown history. It's also a glimpse of an era when mass, shared cultural moments could still happen on a random Monday night. Today, "where the competition for eyeballs and interest and pocketbooks is so unbelievably competitive and there are so many choices, it seems as though that unless it's a specific sporting event or some monumental programming, then it's very hard to have that water cooler moment," says de Passe. "Motown 25" certainly delivered its share of memorable touchstones: the musical battle between the Tempts and the Tops, Gaye's powerful speech, Lionel Richie's call for sickle-cell research, Gordy's triumphant curtain call. But none loomed larger than Jackson's performance of "Billie Jean," which introduced his moonwalk and immortalized his sequined, white-gloved image. It almost didn't happen: Jackson and his brothers had split Motown for Epic Records seven years earlier, and only a personal entreaty from Gordy coaxed him aboard for the night, de Passe recounts. The star's attorneys demanded that the performance not be taped for TV, but when de Passe assured Jackson he had an editing-room veto, he was won over. "If you see him in the finale, he's as happy as he can be," says de Passe. "Motown 25" produced another enduring talking point, one long shrouded in mystery: the Supremes' closing reunion performance of "Someday We'll Be Together," with Gordy called down to take his moment onstage.

Recently watched the movie “If….” (1968) and was struck by actor Richard Warwick; I was sure I’d seen him in something else and sure enough he also appeared in “Nicholas and Alexandra” (1971) and “Sebastiane” (1976) – interestingly, in all 3 films, his character was implied to be or definitely was gay. Later, Warwick played Judi Dench’s brother-in-law in the sitcom “A Fine Romance” (1981-84). I was shocked and saddened to see that he died of AIDS at age 52 in 1997. This got me to thinking about lesser-known actors (or writers, athletes, etc.) who died of AIDs. We all remember Rock Hudson, Liberace, Rudolf Nureyev, etc., but who are some of the semi-famous that we lost during the plague years?
A new breakthrough by scientists at Imperial College heralds a future where a single drug could fight multiple diseases A wonder drug which could fight cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes could be developed within 10 years following a breakthrough by scientists. Imperial College has discovered how to turn off an enzyme which is driving many incurable diseases. The NMT enzyme makes irreversible changes to proteins which stop damaged cells from dying and, instead, speeds up their replication, causing cancer. It can be responsible for cancers become resistant to chemotherapy. It is also known to be involved in Alzheimer's disease, although scientists are unclear as to how it works. But now researchers have identified more than 100 proteins that the enzyme interacts with and have discovered a molecule which acts like an ‘off switch.’ The breakthrough could lead to a new generation of drugs which can be used for a number of different diseases. “This work opens a completely new avenue for the treatment of these diseases, and works very differently from other drugs currently under development,” said lead researcher Professor Ed Tate, from the Department of Chemistry at Imperial College London “We now have a much fuller picture of how NMT operates, and more importantly how it can be inhibited, than ever before. “Eventually we hope this would simply be a pill you could take. It will be perhaps 10 years or so to a drug 'on the market' but there are many hurdles to get over.” The team believes the same enzyme could be driving auto-immune diseases like diabetes and parasitic infections. The chemists used living human cancer cells to identify more than 100 proteins that NMT affects. In one experiment the team programmed cells to die – as would happen in chemotherapy – and discovered that the enzyme stopped the process. Researchers hope that a drug to switch off the enzyme could be used to prevent cancers becoming resistant drugs. The work is so complex that a whole new set of equipment had to be developed over several years to examine the impact of NMT. Dr Emma Smith, Cancer Research UK’s senior science officer, said: “This promising research could lead to new treatments for cancer patients, and for people with other types of disease too. Drugs targeting the molecule the team studied could make current cancer treatments more potent and help stop the cancer coming back. "The next steps will be to develop this idea and make a drug - but there's a way to go before we'll know if it's safe and effective in people.” The study was published in the journal Nature Communications.

Attorney General Eric Holder will resign, a Justice Department official tells ABC News. Holder was the nation's first African-American attorney general. According to the official, "Attorney General Holder has discussed his plans personally with the president on multiple occasions in recent months, and finalized those plans in an hour-long conversation with the president at the White House residence over Labor Day weekend. "At a formal announcement later today, the attorney general plans to express his personal gratitude to the President for the opportunity to serve in his administration and to lead the Justice Department, which he will call the 'greatest honor of my professional life.' He will note he has loved the Justice Department since, when he was a boy, he watched how, under Attorney General Kennedy, the Department played a leadership role in advancing the civil rights movement. During his tenure as Attorney General, Holder has had Attorney General Kennedy’s portrait in his conference room."
The convention will start with a 10-day-long 'New York Super Week,' which will include 110 events around Manhattan and Brooklyn leading into Comic Con. The annual four-day nerdfest will kick off its ninth installment Oct. 9. The annual four-day nerdfest known as New York Comic Con — set to kick off its ninth installment Oct. 9 — has grown by leaps and bounds since its modest beginnings in 2006. Last year’s event, which took up every nook and cranny of the Javits Center, drew a record 133,000 geeks, many of whom hid their secret identities under homemade costumes. The attendance was just over half the number of the annual pilgrimage at the older, more established San Diego Comic Con. For fans in real-life Gotham, it’s become the ultimate geek mecca. “I love being home in New York for Comic Con,” says Norman Reedus, the Manhattan-based star of “The Walking Dead,” the popular AMC zombie series. “For reasons like the time last year the audience sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to my son, I love New York.” Yes, even the celebrities in attendance geek out when they beam into a haven for fellow lovers of comic books, sci-fi movies, superhero TV shows and video games. “At last year’s Comic Con, I met (‘Blues Brothers’ and ‘Trading Places’ director) John Landis, and I felt like I was in the presence of royalty because he made some of my favorite laughing movies ever,” says “Cosmos” host Neil deGrasse Tyson, who’s hosting a “Star Trek Live!” panel. “Should I grovel at his feet? Should I kiss his ring? There’s got to be some gesture that is the right gesture in front of this man.” Constrained by the capacity of the convention center, however, passes regularly sell out months in advance. Organizers’ aspirations of one day besting their West Coast archrival seemed to be as daunting as wrestling a Wookiee — until now. This year, there’s a 10-day-long “New York Super Week” leading into the convention, with 110 events around Manhattan and Brooklyn starting next Friday. Take that, San Diego! “The whole idea of Super Week is to bust outside the walls of the Javits and to spread our pop culture goodness through the Borough of Manhattan,” says Lance Fensterman, the manager in charge of the New York show.

Mine is the Dyatlov Pass incident.
She’d said I would be working on her production side, and I thought, Perfect, I'll be doing personal-assistant work, production work; I might even be working on her films. This is exactly what I want to do. She gave me the first book she wanted to option, and I was like, This is awesome. I want to be a part of this. Because I thought this was going to be a production job. So I stayed on, thinking it would happen, and it never happened. That was the first of many straws of that broke the camel's back. I broke up with a very prominent actor boyfriend of hers. She said, "Oh, we're done making a movie together; it's not really going to work; I'm sort of seeing somebody else. Could you just tell him to back off and leave me alone?" And she said this over the phone, over Christmas. She told me, "Accept the date on my behalf. Take the date. Go instead of me." So, that's what I did. You would think sending a text is the worst — no. Sending your assistant to break up with him is the worst. He had no idea it was coming, either, which was sad. Because when I was talking to him on the phone before, he was like, "Great! She said yes! Tell her I'll see her here; I'll order us her favorite wine," and I was just like, "Okay!" Ugh. I felt horrible for him. I was like, "You do not deserve this." That breakup was two weeks into the job. That was my initiation — Oh my God, this is what I'm doing? Before I lived with her, I would leave at four in the morning to get to her house. I would get there at five in the morning to go over the daily routine with her, get her tea, her food, all her vitamins. And once I lived at her house, I would start at five in the morning and go down to Starbucks and get her coffee and put it beside her bed. Go downstairs and make her tea. Start up her computer and get the schedule of what was happening that day, print it out. Go through emails for her and check to see what was coming in. Grab a couple of newspapers and check the book reviews, because then I would have to go to Barnes and Noble to get the books for her, whether or not she would actually read them. Most of them she did not read. Or she would read the first four or five chapters and then give the book away. I'd turn on the TV and figure out what was going on. By 7 a.m., she'd want to know everything that had happened in the news, what she should be aware of around the world. I was very well informed at that point. If she was up for a job, I'd go through the script with her. She was shooting a lot, and on those days, I would have to be her alarm, and wake her up at 4 a.m. And then later in the day I would drive her child and the babysitter to the set to visit her, and I would have to be around, in case the kid threw a fit, to take them back. You don't get that time to do your own stuff if you're living at the house. And I never had privacy whatsoever. To escape, I would have to physically leave her house at certain times. I took a lot of weekend trips. Sometimes the nanny would let me stay over at her apartment — I would drive around the corner and hide my car and hang out at the nanny's apartment on weekends, just to sleep. And I would leave the house and just go drink a lot. I would go down the street from her place and walk to a couple of the bars. The bar owners knew me, and they understood, because she would pick me up sometimes — they would be like, "Trust me, I know what you have to go home to. These next few rounds are on us." I would drink, and then go back and feed her, and then go to sleep in the office. That lasted several months, until I was like, This is making me into a drunk. I'm not happy with who I am becoming. Even my sister later told me, "I wanted to slap you, because you didn't have a life. You weren't you. You weren't happy. You had the fake Hollywood smile." Once I got called in as an emergency because she said, "I need to see my therapist." So I had to leave my family and drive over and pick her up, she was like, "After therapy, I can't drive." That's fine, I get it: So she's in with the therapist, and I'm sitting there in

This is one aspect of gay sex that I can not wrap my head around. The person licking a man's asshole is not getting any physical pleasure from it unless he is jacking off while doing it. For the majority of straight people, licking anus is a huge no-no, and the natural smells of the anus may be a warning sign for our species to stay clear of the anus to prevent disease. The fact is that the thought of voluntarily licking, let alone tongue fucking, a man's asshole is vomit-worthy to most people. What is different about gay men in that they enjoy this practice? The only thing I can possible construe is the whole "taboo" aspect of it.

“Extra” can exclusively confirm that Britney Spears is definitely heading to Las Vegas for a new show. Spears’ manager, Larry Rudolph, told “Extra” that the Sin City show is set, with a choice between two casinos, one of which is part of Caesars Entertainment Group. The deal will be finalized once Britney’s team decides on the casino. The pop star has been in negotiations for several months to set up shop in Las Vegas. Rudolph said, "We are in deep negotiations and I'd be shocked if it didn't happen. Hoping to have a deal done very soon." A formal announcement is expected in the next few weeks.

And please don't say that she wanted to be, but Gary Morton talked her out of it. Seriously, does anyone know if she was? From what I've read in books, she was a heavy chain smoker and moderate drinker (with a special liking, late in life, for margaritas). Yet, on DL, I've seen her routinely referred to as an alcoholic. Desi, yes. But Lucy? Anyone genuinely knowledgeable?

One is among the biggest selling female pop stars of the last 25 years. Another is a UN ambassador and an Oscar-winning actress. The others range from singers to TV regulars and Bollywood stars. All of whom are used to their physical appearances being routinely scrutinised by the tabloid press. But none of whom were probably expecting to be the focus of this particularly critical piece by the Times of India – a leading Asian publication – entitled 'Hot babes with ugly legs'. "Those muscular legs would look more at home at the wrestling ring!" it reads on the subject of Britney Spears' limbs. "This Oscar winner is seen as the epitome of style and grace," it exclaims in regards to Angelina Jolie. "But her skinny arms and legs with bulging elbows and knees defy her style diva image. Her knees, in particular, could surely use some meat." She goes onto describe Katie Holmes as the "Cute and pretty" ex-wife of Tom Cruise, who "may be skinny on top, but has rather thick legs with muscular calves." VIDEO: ANGELINA JOLIE'S UNESCO SPEECH TO 'END SEXUAL VIOLENCE' GIVEN IN JULY And then there are the "Bolly Paradoxes". Like former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who "has legs that look better when covered". And actress Aditi Rao Hydari, who is "pretty" but "clearly not comfortable with her wobbly knees". Louise Court, Editor-in-Chief of British women's magazine Cosmopolitan, was horrified by the piece. "This Times of India article actually made my jaw drop – which I should probably add, in the spirit of things, could do with more definition and was cushioned as it hit the desk by a bit of a double chin," she tells The Independent. "It is like an article from Viz. Women's bodies are not fair game. Creating the ideal of a 'perfect' image that women should look like is vile to the celebrities criticised but also heaps inferred pressure and criticism on the rest of womankind. "I was infuriated by it – but women struggling with their body image are made even more vulnerable. "This article is just mean and pointless. We should be focusing on the talent of the women on that list - not what they look like. Angelina Jolie is an Oscar winner and global humanitarian. Sarah Jessica Parker is an Emmy award winning actress and producer and fashion designer. Do you want me to go on? The conversation should be about their achievements." Susan Ringwood, Chief Executive of leading eating disorder charity Beat, similarly condemned the irresponsibility shown by the Times of India in the publication of the article.

Thanks to Netflix, many of us are familiar with the concept of new TV series that premiere not on broadcast or cable television, but on a streaming entertainment service. And Netflix isn't the only streaming service getting into the act. Starting Friday, Amazon Prime subscribers have access to the entire first season of a new series called Transparent, starring Jeffrey Tambor. To watch the show, which its publicity material describes as a "dark comedy series," you have to pay for Amazon Prime, that online seller's discount shipping-fee service. If you do that, you have access to Amazon Prime Instant Video — you just have to find it. Maura used to be Mort, who was married with three kids. Now the kids are grown, and she's getting used to her new identity. Tambor plays the role without any hint of cheap humor.i Maura used to be Mort, who was married with three kids. Now the kids are grown, and she's getting used to her new identity. Tambor plays the role without any hint of cheap humor. Transparent is created by Jill Soloway, who directed the movie Afternoon Delight and, more to the point for TV fans, was a writer and producer on HBO's Six Feet Under. That was a wonderful series about a complicated, often dysfunctional, usually volatile family — and so is Transparent. Tambor stars as Mort Pfefferman, the patriarch of a fractured family. His ex-wife, Shelly, played by the delightful sitcom veteran Judith Light, divorced him more than a decade ago. Their three grown children have their own lives, all of which are messy. And when Mort invites the kids to dinner at his place, they all fear that he's about to tell them he has cancer. But that's not it. What he wants to tell them is that he's decided, at age 70, to make some very significant life changes. He's in therapy and attending a support group in order to ease the transition to his new identity as a she — as Maura, after a lifetime of denying her inner and real self by, as she puts it, "dressing up like a man." 'Transparent' is a drama/comedy series that could, in theory, make the Emmy nominations next year in either of those categories. It's that good. Tambor plays this character completely straight — so to speak — without any hint of cheap humor. And it's Tambor's commitment to the role that makes Transparent work so well, and so quickly. When Maura, dressed in a wig and a loose-fitting blouse, explains to her support group where she is in her journey to a new sexual identity, there's no condescension whatsoever. Not from the group, and certainly not from the way Tambor plays her. In the four episodes of Transparent I've previewed, those children — played by Gaby Hoffmann, Jay Duplass and Amy Landecker — all have their own issues, which are thrown into a different perspective as their father becomes someone new to them. They all establish their roles quickly, and draw you into their own respective storylines — and Judith Light, as the acerbic and witty ex-wife, does a great job with a very meaty role. Maura attends a support group to ease the transition to her new identity.i Maura attends a support group to ease the transition to her new identity. One of the surprises with Transparent is how traditional it is, despite its unusual premise. The closest thing to it on TV right now is NBC's Parenthood, a drama with lots of sometimes dark humor, about a family filled with very different personality types, who somehow find ways to connect with and support one another — except when they don't.

Tobacco lobby prepares to fight move to abolish cigarettes over four decades France, where a Gauloise once hung from the bottom lip of every actor or intellectual, plans to move to one of the toughest anti-tobacco regimes in the world. Garish colours and brand names on cigarette packets will be replaced by health warnings in large type and by prominent photographs of the diseased organs of smokers. Car drivers and passengers will be banned from lighting up in the presence of children under 12. Although these measures will not take effect until 2016, an uncompromising TV and radio campaign started today, warning that tobacco kills one in two smokers. There will also be a levy on tobacco companies to fund anti-smoking campaigns, and measures to expose the hidden lobbying of the tobacco industry. The Health Minister, Marisol Touraine, said: “We can no longer accept the fact that the number of deaths caused by tobacco in France is the equivalent of an airliner crashing each day with 200 people on board.” Ms Touraine’s long-term objective is to abolish smoking over 40 years by discouraging new generations from taking up the habit. Her medium-term objective is to reduce the French smoking rate – one in three adults– to the present British rate of one in five adults, by 2024. Only one other country, Australia, has outlawed cigarette branding and imposed “neutral” packaging. Similar measures are under consideration in Britain and Ireland. The big tobacco companies are threatening to sue the French government if it goes ahead with its plan. They say that outlawing distinctive packaging and reducing brand names to small-print, is an assault on “intellectual property” and contrary to European law. Tobacconists’ organisations are threatening street demonstrations. Some centre-right politicians plan to oppose the “not in front of the children” rule, which would apply to cars and playgrounds. “Police officers would be better employed chasing delinquents than smokers,” said Thierry Lazaro, a centre-right member of parliament. Anti-tobacco campaigners hailed Ms Touraine’s plans as “revolutionary”. Yves Martinet, of the national committee against smoking, said: “For the first time in France, we have a thorough programme to attack the problem.” Until the late 1960s, almost two-thirds of French men smoked – but far fewer women. From 1976, a series of increasingly tough measures has been introduced, culminating in a ban on smoking in all public enclosed spaces, including bars and restaurants, from 2006. The smoking rate among French men is much reduced but the habit has spread among French women. The smoking rate is now gender-equal at just under 30 per cent. Worryingly for anti-smoking campaigners – and for Ms Touraine’s ambitious plan to get rid of smoking over 40 years – French teenagers are now smoking as much as their parents. Officially, the smoking rate among 17-year-olds is 30 per cent, for both boys and girls. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the rate is, in fact, much higher. Some anti-smoking campaigners were disappointed that Ms Touraine’s plan includes no further sharp rises in tobacco taxes. The price of a packet of 20 cigarettes in France has doubled in 14 years to €7 (£5.40). Tobacconists have successfully lobbied for a slowing of price increases which had led to an apparent boom in tobacco smuggling.

Just came across this interesting interview with Arlene Dahl from last July. The (Ron Russell) character conducting the piece is a complete amateur & a bit of a sleazebag, but he still managed to get some good dish out of Miss Dahl. One of the things discussed were Lana Turner's daughter Cheryl Crane's rape/molestation accusations against Lex Barker (Tarzan). Cheryl has claimed for years that as a pre-teen she was repeatedly raped by Lex during the time he was married to her mother. Lex had previously been married to Miss Dahl before his marriage to Lana Turner. When questioned about the rape allegations Miss Dahl dropped the following bombshell.......... "Lex Barker had the BIGGEST PACKAGE out of any man I've ever been married to. I barely survived! If he had dared enter her body she'd be dead!" Link posted. Thoughts?
Grand Junction, CO — Angel Lane Place, an 11-month-old baby girl has died as a result of injuries received while under the care of state-approved foster parents. A 20-year-old woman from Grand Junction is facing charges in the death of Angel. The Grand Junction Police Department said Sydney Danielle White told investigators she “accidentally dropped” the infant, Angel Lane Place, on the floor September 12, and then on September 15, grabbed her by the neck and shook her. According to an arrest affidavit, White said that on the morning of September 15, Angel was screaming and she couldn’t get her to stop. She told police she held the baby “by the neck with both hands and shook her multiple times.” She said she stopped after one of her children then came into the room and said, “Mommy, stop it,” and put Angel to sleep. “White said the baby initially became lethargic and wouldn’t wake up, but that later she appeared to be doing better,” police said in a statement sent to 7 News. “Later that night White took Angel to St. Mary’s Hospital when Angel’s right side became stiff and she was unresponsive.” When Angel was brought to the Aurora Children’s hospital the coroner ruled the cause of death as “blunt force trauma to the head.” This is sadly another tragic case of child abuse and murder under state-approved foster care. But why was Angel taken from her biological parents in the first place? 7 News Investigator Theresa Marchetta spoke Tuesday with Angel’s biological mother, Tierra Place, who said her daughter her been removed from her home because she and her husband fought, and said her husband told human services he used marijuana. “This is like losing her twice. I don’t know how someone could possibly do that to a baby,” she said. They also spoke with Angel’s biological father, Ted Place, who is threatening to sue Mesa County. “You know I was seeing pictures of her, seeing videos, you know she was doing good, she was making good progress, and I was okay with the situation she was in,” he said. “And then, all of a sudden, I had just found out that your daughter is in urgent care in Denver, Colorado, and you need to come there. I just want Mesa County to pay for what they’ve done.” All couples have arguments, which does not justify taking someone’s baby unless of course they become violent. However, from the information we have, there is no record of violence between Ted and Tierra Place. When Mr. Place admitted to smoking marijuana he apparently became a target for the ‘do-gooders’ at the Department of Human Services. Sadly, children all over the US are taken from parents who have admitted to marijuana. While there’s no national count on how many parents lose custody of their kids each year due to marijuana, Keith Stroup, founder of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) told The Daily Chronic that his team gets calls “three or four times a week from people who have lost custody of their children because they tested positive at birth or in a situation where parents are feuding over custody.” This kidnapping even occurs in regions where marijuana is legal. Sometimes, when these children are snatched from their well-meaning parents whose only ‘crime’ was to ingest something that grows out of the ground, they face abusive foster parents. Sadly Angel Place is not alone, a year ago, there was the horrible yet preventable tragedy of Alex Hill who was taken from her parents because they admitted to smoking marijuana after she went to bed. Alex was murdered by her foster parents. Ready to end the drug war? How many more innocent lives must be ruined before society comes to their senses?

My 80-year old parents, never all that money savvy, or domestic, to begin with, are practically flushing their money down the toilet. They come from a generation that TRUSTS in institutions, and they value loyalty to the extreme. At the same time, their short-term memory is going...yes, they are getting more STUPID by the day! For example, they have a Honda Accord. Every time they take it to the dealership, they're hit with an expensive repair...every single time! This time the repair is over $2,000 and the car is almost 10-years old. I tell them they're being taken, and I try to explain what's going on in today's world, and they think I'm a nutty conspiracy theorist. They're also MAJORLY overwhelmed by health issues but they are determined to stay independent. I feel like my head is going to explode when I talk to them, but I truly love them, so I can't just forget about them the way my siblings can. Am I the only one?
These self made millionares have fell on hard times. Dad is in the construction business in Florida, of all places. Mom homeschooled. They put all their money in their house, believing that it was a good investment. Dad created it from leftover concrete blocks from houses he was building- I wonder if he overcharged his clients for materials? I also wonder if this guy has a not-so-stellar reputation.%0D\ %0D\ Nonetheless, do a search and you find that these folks donated to the RNC regularly. Now they complain the government won''t help them out.%0D

"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."
Broad category, but hopefully this thread will catch a lot of sexy men, in and out clothing!
Snarky internet commentators, both straight and gay, have a lot of fun depicting Zac and Taylor as gay. Not just homosexual, but as mincing girlymen faggots. But what if they really are gay? It's entirely plausible that both of these guys, who achieved fame while still teenagers, hadn't come to terms with who they were when they agreed to sign their personal life over to managers and publicists. What if they decided to come out? Would you feel bad about laughing at the gay jokes made at their expense like the one below (which I admit I thought was hilarious at the time)? Or, if they are straight, would you feel bad about contributing/validating fag-bashing against two admittedly effeminate men? Discuss amongst yourselves.

Lindsay Lohan has just been dropping bombs for the past weeks. With her own docu-series coming to a halt, the troubled actress has made it a point to drop rather nonchalantly explosive revelations about her never ending personal struggles. The "Mean Girls" star emerged sad and weak after her "sex list" surfaced for everyone to see. During an interview on her own documentary, the troubled actress said that the sex list was "not only humiliating but was also just mean." Now, Lindsay Lohan is back for more controversies as the latest publicity act of the actress includes dissing none other than America's sweetheart Jennifer Lawrence. During an interview with Kode Magazine, which the "Herbie" actress is also cover girl, the 27-year old did not fail to generate public drama when she accused American Sweetheart of derogatory terms. The article says: "...She saunters off into the opposite side of the room as the conversation then moves to America's current sweetheart, Jennifer Lawrence. Her feeling towards her infamous stumble at the ceremony's red carpet is pretty evident. "She's so fake and I'm sorry I'm not going to fuck for roles." It is clear from the article that Lindsay Lohan accused the "Hunger Games" star of sleeping around to snag popular roles in movies. While such statements might have been said out of angst or envy, the likelihood of Jennifer Lawrence sleeping around is just slim. For one, the American sweetheart has a stable relationship with "Warm Bodies" actor Nicolas Hoult. Secondly, the 23-year old actress has already won an Oscar for her well-received portrayal of a mentally unstable girl in "Silver Linings Playbook." Is Lindsay Lohan trying to drag in Jennifer Lawrence's name to generate publicity for herself? It could be the case that Lohan is trying to drag in one of America's most popular faces into controversy to generate publicity for herself. After all, the former child star has been dropping bombs all over the media to possibly up the ante for her low-rating docu-series. Looks like Lindsay is succeeding in generating publicity for herself albeit at a negative kind of fame.
Could it be...good?

Police in Greece are investigating reports suggesting a woman woke up in a coffin after being buried, only to suffocate to death before rescuers could reach her. People visiting a cemetery in the town of Peraia, near Thessaloniki, on Thursday morning reported hearing banging sounds and muffled shouting from inside the woman’s grave, an hour after she had been buried. They called the police who began digging up the grave to try and save her. However, she was found dead when they reached the coffin. The 49-year-old woman had been declared dead by doctors treating her for cancer at a private Thessaloniki clinic early on Thursday morning. A coroner is now expected to examine the body. A doctor at the scene who checked the mother-of-two's body said she could not believe the woman was not dead when she was buried. "As soon as the body was exhumed a cardiogram was conducted that confirmed the woman was dead," she was reported by The Guardian as saying. “Her eyes, it is true, were open but the coroner can give an explanation for that." The woman's relatives are now considering filing a complaint against the doctors treating her for cancer, Greek media reports.
That's the only other way I can explain their behavior.
The famed record producer, serving 19 years for the murder in the death of actress Lana Clarkson, is now at the California Health Care Facility in Stockton. The man behind the “Wall of Sound” is now utterly silent. Legendary music producer Phil Spector went mute nine months ago as his health began failing while imprisoned on a 2009 murder conviction, his lawyer told the Daily Mirror, a British newspaper. Throat polyps were responsible for the 74-year-old Spector losing his voice, said his lawyer Chuck Sevilla. The producer, known for his work with the Ronettes, the Righteous Brothers and the Ramones, is doing 19 years for the shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson. Spector is currently incarcerated at the California Health Care Facility in Stockton, which provides care for sick inmates. “I believe he is able to walk; he’s lost a lot of weight; he’s been unable to speak for nine months due to polyps in his throat which they keep telling him they’re going to perform surgery on,” Spector’s lawyer told the Mirror, noting the surgery has not been performed. “That’s just one of his many maladies,” the lawyer added. “He is in his 70s, and he was not in the best condition going in.” Earlier this week, two mugshots of the producer were released, showing a balding pate that he had covered during his trial with an assortment of wacky wigs.

A tormented young Asperger's sufferer killed himself and lay dead in his flat for up to a week after he was mercilessly taunted and threatened over his sexuality. Jack Ellis, 20, who was also diabetic, is believed to have deliberately overdosed while at his home in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset. He had been living at a supported housing flat for vulnerable adults and his family say that he was supposed to be regularly monitored. His body was found on March 8 with a suicide note - but the delay in finding him meant tests could not reveal his precise cause of death, an inquest heard. Mr Ellis had been visiting his GP, Cordelia Feuchtwang, with mental health conditions for four years and often saw her once a week while she liaised with his teachers, social worker and other medical teams. In a tense inquest, his distraught mother Helen, 57, accused Dr Feuchtwang of failing her son. She shouted across the court: 'You failed him. All of you people, you failed him.' An emotional Dr Feuchtwang solemnly replied: 'I think at some level we have all failed him. I feel sad about that.' The inquest at Flax Bourton, near Bristol, heard that Mr Ellis was bullied over his sexuality at college, over Facebook and via text. He was left with a bloody and scratched face after he was physically attacked by one thug just six weeks before his death. His mother, flanked by daughters Rebecca Weeks, 39, and Amber Camm, 27, told the inquest: 'She (Dr Feuchtwang) never got together with the people who were involved with him. 'There was no multi-disciplinary hearing. She never went to see where he lived. The social worker, they failed him. They didn't know how long he laid dead in that room.' Dr Feuchtwang, who works at a surgery in Yatton, Somerset, replied: 'It's true he didn't have a multi-disciplinary team all in the same room, but we all spent a lot of time speaking on the phone about Jack. 'I think that looking after Jack for several years, there were many times I contacted the mental health team and had long discussions. 'I was also in contact with his teachers and his social worker.' Mr Ellis, who was a train enthusiast, first visited his doctor in August 2009 when he was 16 to talk about how we was being bullied over his sexuality. He had previously tried to overdose and Dr Feuchtwang and his diabetes nurse had limited his prescriptions to make sure he never had more than a week's supply of medication. She told the inquest he also confided feeling depressed over being sexually assaulted by a man involved in the 'train system' a number of years ago. 'He told me about his sexuality and the fact that he got bullied about it,' the GP added.
I love this guy. Anyone know anything about this guy? Where is he from? He looks to be about 30, which is when I think most guys look their hottest and manliest.

Ben McKenzie to Play Young Commissioner Gordon in Fox’s Batman Origin Series February 8, 2014 | 02:30PM PT AJ Marechal, TV Reporter “Gotham” has found its Detective James Gordon. Fox and Warner Bros. TV have tapped Ben McKenzie to star in “Gotham,” casting the “Southland” alum as a young version of DC Comics’ famed Commissioner Gordon. Fox topper Kevin Reilly announced at the net’s winter TCA session that “Gotham” will feature the origin story of Gordon along with Gotham City’s notable villains. A young Bruce Wayne will also be featured, as “Gotham” follows Wayne from his pre-teen years to the moment when it puts on the Batman cape for the first time. Bruno Heller penned the pilot script for “Gotham,” which has a series commitment at Fox. He will exec produce with Danny Cannon, who also helmed the pilot. McKenzie is no stranger to the Fox family, as the thesp landed his breakout role on the net’s sudsy drama “The O.C.” McKenzie also has experience working in the Batman universe, having voiced Bruce Wayne/Batman in 2011 animated pic “Batman: Year One.” The actor is repped by CAA, Management 360 and PJ Shapiro, Ziffren and Brittenham.
This project is conducted by a secret group called Truth4Time. Members of Truth4Time also encourage each other to go on webpages featuring pro-gay articles and freely comment. Again, the group isn't breaking any rules or laws by doing this. But it is the following questionable tactics, such as "ganging up" on pro-gay pages with comments and flagging Facebook pro-gay pages multiple times with the intent on getting these pages removed, which is sure to raise eyebrows. Truth4Time seems to be under the ludicrous impression that gays stoop to this action, so they figure "what's good for the goose is sauce for the gander:" One member of the group, a certain Georgia pastor (who has a long history of maligning the gay community) provides tips on what he calls "leveraging public perception on the subject of homosexuality," or in layman's terms, providing an inaccurate picture of whether or not there is support for lgbt equality: Has anyone else noticed a change in Datalounge?
Which male celebrity (living or dead) would you change your preferred sexual position for IF it meant you could have a night in the sack with him? Mine would be Nick Jonas.

When someone mentions a death in the family, we say "Sorry for your loss." When we talk to someone in the military, we say,"Thank you for your service." Sadly, these really don't mean anything anymore because they are so knee-jerk. Any other examples?
I just discovered that ESPN Classic (a channel I would NEVER otherwise watch) seems to be re-running these classics from the 70s and 80s. Today I saw the swimming competition featuring Daniel J. Travanti, Mark Harmon, Heather Thomas, Cristina Raines, Telma Hopkins, Doug Barr, et. al. and featuring Broadway star Brian Stokes Mitchell! (From when he was on "Trapper John, MD," I assume.) And hosted by .... Howard Cosell!
I am 45, not quite elder-gay but definitely middle-aged (in the truest sense, since I expect to live to be 90, at least). I am attracted to guys in the 28-38 range. I am most definitely not looking to be a sugar daddy or any kind of daddy for that matter. Basically, I just like younger guys. Are there any dating websites geared toward this demographic, preferably one that isn't promoting a fetish, like silver daddy or bears, etc.?
NOT...which her best, but which is your favorite..and why? (& let's be [bold]COOL[/bold] about Star Is Born...& not insult people for liking it).
Anybody else into this. Lovely gay content. Good writing. Exposes the hypocrisy of religious .

"Her comeback this year has been nice, and her song "Body Party" is 1 of the biggest gay hits of the year."
Kanye West allegedly pulled a real Joe Biden at a performance in Melbourne last night when he threatened to stop a performance if a wheelchair-bound fan—whoops!—didn't stand up. According to the Daily Mail, a concertgoer said Kanye announced he couldn't perform a particular song unless everyone was standing, adding, "Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and shit." In this instance, Kanye reportedly moved on when the audience member he was waiting on waved a prosthetic limb in the air, confirming that he did, in fact, get special parking and shit. But this wasn't the only case of accidentally-asking-a-wheelchair-bound-fan-to-stand Kanye experienced last night—later, the Daily Mail reports Kanye sent his bodyguard to make sure a seated audience member was, in fact, handicapped: But when another fan remained seated, he stopped the song Good Life, saying, 'This is the longest I've had to wait to do a song, it's unbelievable,' before sending bodyguard Pascal Duvier into the arena to check whether the person was in fact in a wheelchair- which they were. 'The crowd was also yelling that he was in a wheelchair but he waited for Pascal's confirmation,' the witness said, while others said the crowd made 'wheelchair motions' to alert the singer to his mistake. Kanye continued with the performance after getting the confirmation, telling the wheelchair-bound fan that remaining seated was "fine." Phew! Luckily, as long as they're standing, Kanye has no problem performing to a crowd of people making wheelchair motions.
And her job is to critique fashion? Bitch, please!
She bullies people to get their damn hamburgers.

ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. (MarketWatch) -- "How my G.O.P. destroyed the U.S. economy." Yes, that is exactly what David Stockman, President Ronald Reagan's director of the Office of Management and Budget, wrote in a recent New York Times op-ed piece, "Four Deformations of the Apocalypse." Get it? Not "destroying." The GOP has already "destroyed" the U.S. economy, setting up an "American Apocalypse." Yes, Stockman is equally damning of the Democrats' Keynesian policies. But what this indictment by a party insider -- someone so close to the development of the Reaganomics ideology -- says about America, helps all of us better understand how America's toxic partisan-politics "holy war" is destroying not just the economy and capitalism, but the America dream. And unless this war stops soon, both parties will succeed in their collective death wish. But why focus on Stockman's message? It's already lost in the 24/7 news cycle. Why? We need some introspection. Ask yourself: How did the great nation of America lose its moral compass and drift so far off course, to where our very survival is threatened? We've arrived at a historic turning point as a nation that no longer needs outside enemies to destroy us, we are committing suicide. Democracy. Capitalism. The American dream. All dying. Why? Because of the economic decisions of the GOP the past 40 years, says this leading Reagan Republican. Please listen with an open mind, no matter your party affiliation: This makes for a powerful history lesson, because it exposes how both parties are responsible for destroying the U.S. economy. Listen closely: (more at the link)
Any fans here? They had only a couple of huge hits in America decades ago but I also like their more recent stuff, which still has a nice retro sound to it. I always thought they were like a funner version of Eurythmics.

An invitation from Barbra Streisand to record a duet is still the closest thing in pop to a royal summons. Her newest duets album, “Partners” (Columbia), with its blurred edges and pastel shades, is even mistier, gauzier and more texturally diffuse than such confections as “Guilty.” The instrumentation and the vocal tracks are so processed in pursuit of a high-gloss perfection that any sense of two people standing side by side and singing their hearts out is lost. Some cuts are so swamped in echo that Ms. Streisand’s male partners, especially John Mayer on “Come Rain or Come Shine,” Billy Joel in “New York State of Mind,” Josh Groban on “Somewhere” and John Legend on “What Kind of Fool” are only semi-recognizable. “New York State of Mind,” in particular, is an exercise in bombastic excess that smothers the song. The only distinctive element of the Mayer duet is a stunted little guitar solo. Ms. Streisand’s voice has noticeably diminished in size, but its signature quality, an ingrained sob, still exerts its pull. The choppy calls and responses between Ms. Streisand and her partners, however, lack conversational or narrative flow, and you have an uncomfortable sense that the parts were spliced together after the fact. Andrea Bocelli (“I Still Can See Your Face”), surprisingly, is a vocal mismatch. So is Blake Shelton (“I’d Want It to Be You”). A beyond-the-grave duet with Elvis Presley on “Love Me Tender” is a crass commercial stunt that should have been omitted. More listenable is the duet with Lionel Richie, “The Way We Were.” But in general, remakes of songs Ms. Streisand has recorded before are inferior to the originals. Only once, on a moderately swinging rendition of “It Had to Be You,” with Michael Bublé, is there a suggestion of ease and naturalness and genuine enjoyment. The most touching cut is the mother-son duet, “How Deep Is the Ocean,” by Ms. Streisand with Jason Gould. She knows what she’s singing about and really feels it.
Earlier this year, Tallulah Willis’ older sister Scout Willis both shocked and delighted Twitter followers with her brazen #FreeTheNipple campaign against Instagram’s censorship regulations. The daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis took to the streets of New York completely topless to demonstrate about what she feels are unfair judgements made by the social media site based on its perception of sexuality and beauty. Now, her younger sister, Tallulah Willis has decided to strip down, in order to raise awareness about body dysmorphia – an anxiety disorder that causes sufferers to spend a lot of time worrying about their appearance. Tallulah was diagnosed with this at just 13 years old. “I struggled a lot when I was younger,” she says in the video, filmed for website StyleLikeU, in which she slowly takes off a piece of clothing at a time. “Like I'm diagnosed with body dysmorphia with reading those stupid f***ing tabloids when I was like 13 and feeling like I was ugly, like always. I believed the strangers more than the people who loved me because why would the people who love me be honest?” “That made me start to dress showing off my boobs and my butt and those things that I was getting attention for,” she continues, taking off her shoes. “I was trapped in this body. I started starving myself and losing a bunch of weight and I got down to like 95 pounds. When I lost my curves and when my boobs shrivelled up into like nothing and I had no shape. It put me in even more of a cage.”
I have always loved cold sparkling white wine and Champagne. And drinking it from a flute is half the fun.\ \ Alas, based upon medical reasons ,from now on, with the exception of this one last time, my physician is ordering me to abstain from alcohol.\ \ If I can only indulge one more time, I want to splurge on a high-end choice. My first and obvious choice is Dom Perignon. I''m acquainted, however, with a liquor and wine store owner who says he has tried Dom Perignon and it is overrated especially at its price. And he, like me loves extra dry or brut.\ \ If you had to choose a sparkling wine or Champagne as your "last meal", which brand would you choose?\ \ Extra dry or brut only.

I''m curious what it was like in the early 80''s when people started dying but know one knew why. What did you do? Did you stop having sex? If you hadn''t come out yet did it keep you in?

I thought this guy was great when he first came on the scene. Now he's the biggest attention whore ever and has just posted a pic of his birthday cake decorated with a cock, balls, ball gag and other decs. Ya, now. Because he is THAT edgy.
There are no words.
No Vito, so maybe he's on the prowl foe some fresh chicken. Link NSFW.
Seriously, this poor woman is a fucking moron, the very textbook definition of buffoon. She's been booted from two previous networks, CNN finally got her off the air at the main network after she proved to be an embarrassment on their early program.. Now, even with her being at their trashy sister network, she's STILL a complete idiot. (Link is to HuffPo)
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are bulletproof -- or will be very soon -- because they're ramping up their personal security -- complete with ARMORED VEHICLES -- after a frightening assault in Paris. Our Kim and Kanye sources say ... K&K were "freaked out" after Kim was almost tackled to the ground by a crazy man. They're especially upset because the Paris paparazzi are following them in hordes ... and crowd control has become extremely difficult. Our sources say ... they've hired 2 additional teams of armed bodyguards who will encircle them whenever they're in public during Fashion Week. We're told Kim and Kanye will NOT retain the additional security when they come back to the U.S. They feel Paris has just become too insane for them to handle.
He was with his sister or girl friend. He's a mtof transter. He was quite tall for female and in a halter top with heavy necklace. Quite amusingly sweet. I tried not to stare, but he really looked like a guy in girl summer clothes. He seemed to have real female breasts but the voice was a dead giveaway. Gawd, I'm really grateful that I don't have any delusions of being a female.
It's not working out either.
After finding out about the Obama's Alice in Wonderland party in 2009, in honor of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, drinking blood out of vials and shit, I started looking into Depp's history. I know he and Burton were/are deeply embedded in the occult world, but I didn't know how convoluted Depp's story is. I mean, he really is an enigma. His closer than close relationship with Hunter Thompson (lived with him), who, allegedly directed snuff child porn; The Viper Room/Club Culture; River Phoenix, abused by the "Children of God"; (father sold his kids into all sorts of shit), and his mafia business partner who conveniently for Johnny Depp, disappeared off the face of the earth in 2001. [quote]It can be assumed that after actor River Phoenix died outside the Viper Room on Halloween, 1993 that members of law enforcement launched their own investigations as to what was going on inside the club. However, no legal action has resulted in the numerous incidents that have taken place at the club over the years. Club Manager Sal Jenco, a recovering alcoholic, has gone public in noting the steps he has taken to keep his patrons safe and sober. Jenco and Johnny Depp were named in the lawsuit filed in 2000 by their partner Anthony Fox in which Fox alleged that profits that should have gone into Safe in Heaven Dead Productions, Inc. were instead diverted into a company owned solely by Jenco and Depp. A preliminary ruling by the Judge in this case earlier this year indicated Fox would prevail in the suit. Fox, however, vanished without a trace in Christmas, 2001. Who is this guy?
My boyfriend and two friends can call, everyone else please text or email. anyone feel similarly? STFU bitches!!!
[bold] Everyone's favorite prop comic and watermelon smasher has turned into a hate-filled, right-wing loon [/bold] It's been a blessedly long time since we gave any thought to prop-comic and squasher of summer fruit Gallagher. But when a story in Seattle's the Stranger this week described him as a "Paranoid, Right-Wing, Watermelon-Smashing Maniac," we here at Crazy Central were suitably intrigued. Relating the tale of the 63-year-old comedian's recent sold-out performance at Washington's Admiral Theater, writer Lindy West goes from snarky young critic expecting fogy gags to horrified silent witness to pure unbridled lunacy. Turns out Gallagher's current act, while still relying on hammering random stuff like water chestnuts (which Gallagher puzzlingly refers to as "China people and queers") is a hate-strewn celebration of the "Anglo-Saxon Viking" and his assertion that "I am powerful, I'm an American and I'm gonna speak my mind." Look out, United States. We're not sure how it happened, but somewhere along the way Leo Anthony Gallagher Jr. has gone from merely a comedy hack to a full-fledged hate monger. His disgust for "French fags," lesbians and Obama (about whom he sneers, "You're a latte, you're half whole-milk %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%A6 you could be a terrorist!") is now bigger than that oversize couch he used to jump around on. Things Gallagher likes: America, "poor Michael Vick" and normal names that won't give your baby "little lesbian tendencies." Things he does not like: everything else. Sure, we suspected all was not right under that beret years ago, when he let his brother become his living spinoff, Gallagher II, and then sued him over it. And his notorious 2005 interview with the Oregonian, wherein he managed to trash Letterman, Leno, Tom Hanks, Michael Keaton and Jim Carrey, didn't make us think this was a guy with a lot of love to go around. But someone who rides around in a giant Big Wheel and still dresses like Doug Henning just didn't strike us as someone who'd despise the Rice Krispies elves because they seem so "gay." Someone whose idea of a joke is, "Well-known ana-wreck-sick Nicole Richie had to stop trying to breast-feed her new baby when the poor little thing's cheeks collapsed and mamma was treated for a hickie on her tittie." Waaah-waaaaah. Speaking to the Onion's AV Club last fall, the comic said, "I think the fact that I'm still in business 30 years later proves that this is the proper way to think about things." It proves something, all right, but we think it's likelier the end of civilization. Gallagher has never been funny ha-ha. But who knew till now that the man with the mallet was so funny-horrible?
I am making Smores Cookies from a Dunkin HInes Mix. I just want to say that this mix smells all grahamy like Smores! It really smells Smore'sy. Now fuck off, this aging 37 year old has a HOT tray of cookies waiting for me. Piss off!
At the supermarket today, one of the tabloids (can't remember which) in the checkout line had a cover of stars who might be next to die. I swear one of you bitches wrote the story! Included: Jane Fonda, Liza, and Mare (of course).
I've got stuff in my refrigerator, still unopened, that's been there for a long time (years in some cases). Beer, wine, flavored malt beverages, etc. None of it has been opened and it's been kept cold the entire time. Will it still be ok to drink or do some alcohol beverages go bad with age?
In the earlier days of the Internet, it used to send fellow posters in a rage. How do you feel about it now ?
Who's due for a comeback? Well?
