THURSDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2014 Partial butt shot:
(Apologies if this has already been posted. I did a Google and a DL search; they're not always fool-proof) German tourists film a tour guide in San Francisco going off on a foul-mouthed racist rant against the city’s Chinese population on her last day of work, KGO reports. And as she delivered her filthy racist rant, passengers on her tour bus APPLAUDED HER. An excerpt from the rant: "F*ck your pre-schools and your little pre-schoolers making all that noise at six in the morning when I was trying to live here. F*ck your salons, f*ck your little herb gardens, f*ck your little seafood f*cking markets with your turtles and your frogs inside, OK. "When you come to America you gotta assimilate a little bit, and here in America we don't eat turtles and frogs. They're gonna bring that here to America? There's a limit ok. "F*ck your laundry hanging out the windows, f*ck your three or four people inside each one of your little SROs, f*ck your noise, f*ck your parades, f*ck your dragons, f*ck this shit, f*ck Chinatown."
He is now 45 with very little money and very few job opportunities. He's aging, has no wife nor any children. He's on the z-list with no real following. And as for Queer As Folk, he basically whored himself out for a job if he is in fact straight. Where do you think he will be years from now?
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.

Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt on Wednesday lashed out at atheists who had asked that Christian plaques be removed from public schools in Texas, saying that they “need to understand the culture” in the South. Earlier this year, the Midlothian Independent School District covered Christian plaques at two schools after the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) threatened to sue. But parents and students protested, and the Midlothian ISD board voted to uncover the plaques. The FFRF has said that it was considering moving forward with a lawsuit, but the board declined to take up the matter at Monday night’s meeting. Tiffany Davlin, who organized protests to keep the plaques, told Fox News in a Wednesday interview that the schools should have to keep the plaque because a majority of the parents were Christians and approved of them. “We’re all about wanting to see the cause of Christ go further,” Pastor Justin Coffman, whose children attend Midlothian ISD schools, explained to Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt. “We want to see the cause of Christ in more public arenas in the American culture. We don’t want to take things away from. We want to see Christ in our schools.” “This is the same group that has attacked other schools in other states,” Earhardt said of the FFRF, pointing out that a coach at Clemson University had been asked to stop holding Bible studies for students. The South Carolina native continued: “And I think, growing up in the South, people in Wisconsin, these atheists in other cities need to understand the culture in the South, and how church is a very integral part of our childhood and growing up, and it’s a very important part for the Southern culture.” Davlin said that she was upset that a secular group could “come into a community, which is a strong Christian-majority community, and say what we can or cannot have.” “Attempt to bully us,” Coffman opined. “Yeah,” Earhardt agreed. “Yeah, Justin, you touched on it: the War on Christianity.”
Both have plusses: attractive, one fantastic body for his age and one coming-along body AND a big minus: they are playing with the gay. OP would probably go with Joel as Daniel would be too silly and has an ass issue.
TAYLOR LAUTNER and PATRICK SCHWARZENEGGER 3rd Annual Hilarity for Charity Variety Show to benefit the Alzheimer's Association Hollywood -- 17 October 2014
WASHINGTON -- Joni Ernst, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Iowa, said during an NRA event in 2012 that she would use a gun to defend herself from the government. “I have a beautiful little Smith & Wesson, 9 millimeter, and it goes with me virtually everywhere,” Ernst said at the NRA and Iowa Firearms Coalition Second Amendment Rally in Searsboro, Iowa. “But I do believe in the right to carry, and I believe in the right to defend myself and my family -- whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from the government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.” Ernst made the remark a little more than a month after gunman James Holmes allegedly killed 12 people and injured 58 in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Ernst’s campaign did not respond to The Huffington Post's request for comment about the remark on Wednesday evening. Earlier this year, Ernst released an ad in which she points a gun at the camera and vows to “unload” on Obamacare.

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.
The EAR ONS case in Northern California/Sacramento fascinates me and frightens me. Never caught and not much public attention despite his horrifying MO. Polly Klaas still gives me shivers. So, too, does the case of Cary Stayner (Yosemite) and his brother.
The other thread is filled up and couldn't find a new thread, so here it is. I'm in Dallas. I heard it through the grapevine that one of the relatives has gone to Baylor Carrollton because he/she suspects being infected. More to come.
The only pet I had was a Westie from age 8 until my early twenties and he was a family dog and we shared the responsibilities. I remember not especially liking it when my parents went away and I was left in the house with him (although I love dogs) and have therefore never really related to the idea that they can help if you're feeling lonely. A friend was on the 'phone earlier nagging me to get a dog...but I'm not sure. So back to the first question...does a dog really keep you company and keep away he lonely blues if you find yourself on your own in life or will I feel like a sad single parent family.
Are his painting in thrift stores yet? The Placerville art gallery that helped launch the stunningly successful career of Sacramento-born “painter of light” Thomas Kinkade is going dark. The Thomas Kinkade Gallery in downtown Placerville will shut its doors following a going-out-of-business sale that will begin Thursday. Owner George Carpenter and gallery manager Nathan Ross announced the decision in a letter to customers on the gallery’s mailing list and on a giant banner in the store’s window. Ross said the decision was prompted by Carpenter’s upcoming retirement. Rather than carry on with the business, Ross said he has decided instead to pour his energy into expanding a toy store he runs. “It’s been OK,” Ross said, referring to business at the Kinkade gallery. “It’s not what it was. ... My future in the business is moving in a different direction; it’s not with Thomas Kinkade.” He said the toy business, known as Kiddlywinks, is growing more quickly, and he plans to diversify into home and garden goods. The announcement means Placerville’s historic Main Street will lose one of its signature businesses, a destination that draws tourists. “We do have people who walk in the visitors center looking for it,” said Jody Franklin, director of tourism for the El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce. The impact won’t be huge, but “that name has such recognition, it’s going to be a loss,” she added. With the gallery’s closure, Placerville loses another connection to the late artist, who was raised in Placerville and was often inspired by images of the town’s past. “Thomas Kinkade was kind of like the hometown hero around here,” said Jim Powers, owner of a Main Street photography gallery that bears his name. Although he was born in Sacramento, Kinkade grew up in Placerville and got his start in the mid-1980s, when he was commissioned to create a work of art for the Placerville Library. He painted an image of downtown on a rainy day, as he thought it would have looked in 1916. For a while, he sold prints of his paintings from a card table at a Placerville shopping center. Then in 1990 he walked into the downtown gift shop owned by Carpenter. “He comes in with a few pieces under his arm – some framed and some without frames – and we set them around the store and lo and behold one sold, then two, and pretty soon three or four sold,” Carpenter recalled in the book “Thomas Kinkade: Twenty-Five Years of Light,” published six years ago. “And I said, ‘Thom, we might have something here!’” Carpenter soon renamed his store Thomas Kinkade Gallery, and an empire was born. Millions of Kinkade prints and and paintings have been sold, and scores of galleries have sprung up around the country. Kinkade set up a publishing company based in Morgan Hill, conducted a public stock offering, and then teamed up with investors in 2004 to buy the business back from shareholders. Kinkade’s works were largely a mix of pastoral scenes, designed to evoke nostalgia, but he also depicted big cities and such landmarks as Yankee Stadium and Graceland. He was almost universally scorned by art critics, but he said he couldn’t have cared less. “My art represents a yearning for a comfortable place of warmth and security, one of serenity in the chaos of our day,” he said in a Sacramento Bee interview in 2008. His last few years were anything but serene. Several former gallery owners sued the Kinkade company, saying Kinkade had exploited his Christian faith to persuade them into opening galleries, and then undermined them by marketing discounted artwork through other vendors. The Los Angeles Times reported in 2006 that the FBI began investigating the Kinkade company. The company, known as Pacific Metro, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in San Francisco in 2010. Kinkade was arrested on a drunk-driving charge in Carmel a few days later. In April 2012, Kinkade died at the age of 54 at his home in Monte Sereno. The Santa Clara County medical examiner ruled the death an accidental overdose of alcohol and prescription tranquilizers.

Bellagio in Vegas is supposedly the top-rated hotel/casino for customer service. What would you do if the following happened to you? Attending an event at Bellagio hotel/casino, I needed to use the Women's Restroom. In the middle of using the toilet, I saw a huge flood of DARK BROWN FECES flooding my stall from the one next to it. My brand new Satin high heels and large cloth bag were immediately covered in the filthy poop. I finished as quickly as possible and went to the bathroom sink. The smell was horrific. I told the housekeeper what had happened. She yelled at me in front of the other patrons that I should have inspected the stall before using it. She didn't care that the flood of shit happened after I was using the toilet. She ignored my request for help in cleaning my shoes and cloth bag. I had to stand in my stocking feet on the restroom floor, and clean someone else's feces off of my things. I had no choice but to wear the shoes out of the restroom, and carry the cloth bag. I then called for a shift manager. After a long wait, he finally showed up. His response? He didn't see the incident so there was nothing that he could do to help me. I would be happy to take a lie detector test to prove that what I'm saying is 100% true and accurate.
Do you read the blinds? I keep reading on DL that Enty Lawyer of CDAN is a big fraud. I tend to agree. Also, Blind Gossip. Many of those blinds are so vague it could be anyone. Others are obvious bullshit. In the last couple of weeks , Lainey has done a blind about Kristen Stewart hooking up with Nicolas Hoult, and Enty did a blind about Stewart marrying her girlfriend in secret. How often are these blinds ever revealed as true? What are some unconfirmed blinds you've read that you believed, and thought you guessed accurately? One that stuck in my mind from Enty: Sandra Bullock and Jesse james had done a sex tape of themselves in nazi uniforms, and shit was involved, Sandra had shit on her body on the tape and she adopted the black baby to ''protect'' herself from the Nazi rumours! Oh, please! Yet, the posters on those sites take it so seriously.
Yet another way to waste time. I was watching a German today putting potatoes up his ass. Granted, they were only fingerlings but I could not stop watching. Anyone else?
Has she poked her head out spouting her stupidity in any threads? Or is she quite while mourning her "great loss"?
Will it ever be solved? In 1987 two teenage boys near Mena, AR, were murdered. Their killers have never been brought to justice. However, things are a bit more complex and involve a conspiracy starting with the police and going all the way to Gov. Bill Clinton's office. It seems the murders may be related to covert CIA drug smuggling operations.

My aunt would resend post cards using the same stamp, crossing out the message and rewriting a new one. One day my mom got a postage due notice.

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.
What will be uncovered?
I've been a DataLounge subscriber off & on for several years. Frankly, I find it strange that the only (BIG) advantage to being a subscriber is our ability to post topics. 1) I'd like to have the ability to go back & edit my posts. 2) Access to a more efficient "Troll-Dar" would also be nice as well. One in which a pop-up comes up showing all recent posts by a particular person when you hit their "Troll-Dar". 4) A "Block" feature would also be wonderful! What additional features would you folks like to see offered to subscribers?

Every now and again a Republican state party operative or elected official will drop the ruse and admit that the purpose of state-level voter restrictions isn’t to curtail voter impersonation fraud or to cut election costs, but to keep the wrong kinds of people from voting. Usually the admission is purely cynical, as when Pennsylvania’s House Majority Leader Mike Turzai said, “Voter ID … is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania.” (It didn’t.) Other times it’s suffused with racism—the forefather of vote suppression—as when Don Yelton, then a Republican precinct chairman from North Carolina, appeared on "The Daily Show" last year to announce that “the law is going to kick the Democrats in the butt… If it hurts a bunch of lazy blacks that want the government to give them everything, so be it.” Governors, senators and national operatives are better at keeping a lid on this kind of candor. But as evidence that voter fraud is a right-wing superstition mounts, alongside evidence that the GOP’s remedies measurably suppress the vote, savvier arguments for voting restrictions are reducing toward either naked appeals like Turzai’s and Yelton’s or toward a kind of post-modernist denial of objective reality in service of ideological gain. “Would you rather have Rick Scott in Florida overseeing the voting mechanism, or Charlie Crist?” New Jersey Governor Chris Christie asked this week at a Chamber of Commerce event in Washington. “Would you rather have Scott Walker in Wisconsin overseeing the voting mechanism, or would you rather have Mary Burke? Who would you rather have in Ohio, John Kasich or Ed FitzGerald?” Christie went on, “The fact is it doesn’t matter if you don’t really care what happens in these states, you’re going to care about who is running the state in November of 2016, what kind of political apparatus they’ve set up and what kind of governmental apparatus they’ve set up to ensure a full and fair election in 2016.” By no coincidence, Republicans in each of those states have already imposed disenfranchising restrictions, which makes it clear that Christie sees these kinds of laws as an existential necessity, the key to Republican self-perpetuation. In Christie’s mind, American election outcomes are a direct function of partisan control of states. Republicans, who “oversee the voting mechanisms,” need to win so that they can continue to “oversee the voting mechanisms." If they don’t win now, they’ll lose control of the voting mechanisms ahead of an election in which fundamentals will favor the Democrats, and be doomed. There’s a blinkered and an unblinkered way to interpret such a view. The former—a more generous interpretation—is that Christie believes, against all evidence, that when Republicans lose control of the voting apparatus, fraud becomes rampant and cheaters swing elections to Democrats. The latter, to quote the Washington Monthly’s Ed Kilgore, is that Christie is “treating the right to vote as discretionary, depending on [his] party’s needs, which makes voter suppression just another day at the office”—that he believes Republicans must cheat to win now, so that they can live to cheat another day.
Gawker reports that Mama June from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is "dating a man who molested an 8-year-old by forcing oral sex on her, TMZ reports. Mark McDaniel was convicted in 2004 and served 10 years in prison before being released in March. The child he molested was a relative of June's." TLC has said that it is "reassessing the future of the series."
Well, this is embarrassing for her, innit?
Jimmy Kimmel of late-night television has sold his home in Hollywood Hills for $2,178,200. The Hollywood Regency-style house, built in 1947 and updated, sits on a knoll with views that take in the Griffith Observatory, the Hollywood sign and the surrounding hillsides. A path that leads to the front door crosses over a water element. Inside, vintage details include a floor-to-ceiling leaded-glass bay window and oval leaded-glass windows. The 3,605 square feet of living space contains formal dining and living rooms, a bar, four bedrooms, a bedroom converted to a sound studio with a recording booth, and five bathrooms. An outdoor kitchen features a pizza oven, a beer keg dispenser and a barbecue with a smoker. The grounds also have a swimming pool with a spa, decks and mature trees. Kimmel, 46, created and has hosted "Jimmy Kimmel Live" since 2003. He bought the house in 2002 for $925,000, according to public records. Karen Misraje of Partners Trust was the listing agent. William Barker and Joan Caplis of Coldwell Banker represented the buyer.
During a recent Obama speech, a few hundred primarily black people walked out. The incident became so distracting that volunteer workers had to go around and ask people not to leave and wait until the President was finished speaking.

My boss chewed out someone at work today for not responding to emails, and I completely agreed. I'm doing business with someone right now, and every time I call her she says, "oh I got your message". Well why didn't you reply bitch?! We have smartphones and computers in front of our faces almost all the time, yet people do not respond to important messages when it only takes seconds. We might as well go back to snail mail.
With mansionization marching on in some Los Angeles neighborhoods and city officials saying stricter regulations are still a year and a half away, some vexed residents are taking matters into their own hands. Beverlywood resident Pam Roberts-Malay said she was moved to act after a new, bigger home was built on a modest lot next door, blocking her treasured view of the Century City skyline with an eyeful of gray wall. The new home, roughly twice the size of the old one, obscured the western sunlight and scenery she had loved. So she gave her neighbors an eyeful of their own. ALSO: 99 ways to boost pensions in California — at public cost Big signs across the western windows of her Cresta Drive home proclaim in block letters "Your house destroyed our privacy" and "Your house blocks our sunlight." Roberts-Malay posted the signs after failing to hear back from the owners or persuade her homeowner association that the house should not have been allowed under neighborhood restrictions. "I am not the type that likes to feel powerless," Roberts-Malay said. The owners of the neighboring home, Ezra and Aviva Sagi, declined to be interviewed. In a September letter to Roberts-Malay and her husband, the Sagis' attorney said they were seeking a temporary restraining order, arguing that the couple were "deliberately seeking to annoy them" and making it harder for them to sell the vacant house. Such squabbles represent the latest round in the long-standing tug of war over how far the rights of L.A. homeowners — and their neighbors — extend. Los Angeles leaders say they want to tighten restrictions on mansionization, but citywide fixes are expected to take at least 18 months to allow for repeated hearings and environmental review, according to city officials. As the gears of city bureaucracy grind on, irritated Angelenos are planning protests at open houses of fresh "McMansions" near Beverly Grove, and passing out tip sheets on how to report suspected building violations at the bigger, often boxier houses that irritate them in the La Brea Hancock area. In North Beverly Grove — an epicenter of the mansionization backlash — the frustration has even shown up on the fences of demolished or soon-to-be demolished homes, some of which have been spray-painted with slogans or festooned with bags of dog poop, said longtime resident Clark Carlton, an outspoken opponent of mansionization. Carlton said he and his allies don't condone the destruction of private property. "But people are frustrated because they feel like they've done everything they can do legally," he said.

Breaking News Story
Died of heart attack brought on by cirrhosis of the liver
The Republican candidate for the top education job in Idaho has been caught lying about her education, endorsements, and marital history – but she’s still leading in the polls. Sherri Ybarra has claimed throughout her campaign that she expected to earn a doctorate in education in August, but she instead received an education specialist degree from the University of Idaho, reported The Spokesman-Review. Her campaign spokeswoman said Ybarra did not intend to mislead voters, but she said the candidate had decided to apply some of the credits she’d earned in the doctorate program toward the lesser degree. “She’s been working toward this for a long time,” said spokeswoman Melinda Nothern. “(But) she changed her mind.” Ybarra holds a master’s degree in education from the University of Idaho, reported The Spokesman Review, and she has been enrolled off and on since 2007 in the education specialist program. She was enrolled this summer in that program and the doctorate program, and her spokeswoman claimed Ybarra was still enrolled and actively pursuing that degree. Her Democratic opponent, Jana Jones, earned a doctorate from Idaho State in 2001, and she said there’s “no way” Ybarra could have earned a doctorate in just one semester. Jones, who trailed Ybarra by three points in a poll conducted last week, said her opponent’s behavior is baffling. “At this point with everything else that’s gone on, I just think she misleads the public, and I don’t understand why,” Jones said. “But she does, and then acts like it’s no big deal — and I just find that puzzling.” Ybarra previously apologized for plagiarizing material from her opponent’s campaign website and posting it on her own campaign website, the newspaper reported. She also inaccurately claimed a former opponent in the Republican primary had become an official in her campaign. Ybarra has spent this week clarifying her marital history after claiming in an interview that she had moved to Idaho in 1996 with her husband when he was transferred by the military. She did move to the state that year with her husband, reported the Idaho Statesman, but not her current spouse – who she married in 1999 and declined to identify by name in an interview earlier this year. When the Statesman questioned her about her previous marriage, Ybarra said she did not recall how long she had been married or when exactly she was divorced. “My brain doesn’t operate in the past,” she told the newspaper. Ybarra also admits she has never voted in Idaho since moving there, but she claims she’s running for state superintendent to atone for her lapse. “That’s a civic duty, and if elected, this will be a civic duty that I will repay Idaho through for my lack of having a consistent voting history — and I would be honored to do that,” Ybarra said Tuesday during a televised debate.
It's good to be informed... read this and spread it around. It's important to know the facts.

23 October 2014 They are soon to become first-time parents as their due date draws ever nearer. So it seems fitting that Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen are getting ready to welcome their little one by working on some home improvements. The 33-year-old actress is currently pregnant with her first child with the actor, and the two were seen shopping at a home renovation store in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Although former The OC actress Rachel stayed inside their car, Hayden got out and did his bit, selecting from a collection of rocks. The Star Wars actor, also 33, carried the rocks back and forth to his star girlfriend, as she approved them from her car seat. The father-to-be sported a blue Nirvana band t-shirt under a casual hoodie as he used his muscle power during the shopping trip. Meanwhile, the stunning brunette sipped from a bottle of water as she directed him from the comfort of their vehicle. As her due date draws closer, the expectant parents, who have been in an on/off relationship since 2007, are no doubt keen to make their home as perfect as possible for their new arrival. It's thought the Hart of Dixie star is going to give birth before the end of the year. Earlier in the week, she was seen out and about running errands in Hollywood, wearing a casual outfit of fitted black leggings and a flowing, grey top that covered her blossoming bump in the most flattering of ways. It was recently revealed that the expecting mum was given birth beads by Natalie Portman and Jaime King at her baby shower on August 31. She was surrounded by her friends and family, including the Black Swan actress and her Hart of Dixie co-star, each of whom gave her a birth bead. The beads were then strung together into a necklace for Rachel to wear while she is in labour, so as to give her strength.
I felt so bad that trolling-type posts of mine meant as camp humor and pointless cuntery was taken seriously and offended some of our sisters. Sometimes we don't know where the limits of understanding are. So, please, join me in a celebration of all the good things the many straight women now on the DL and posting in so many threads bring to the DataLounge. I don't want them to feel that they are unwanted or unappreciated. Thank you.
Brian Bowman was elected Mayor of Winnipeg, Manitoba tonight. First Aboriginal Mayor of a Large Canadian City. Does he ping to anyone else?
Be proud and show off the little guy.
The Duchess of York looks more put together now than ever before. She recently celebrated her 55th birthday with a party at Windsor Castle.
Shia LaBeouf gets shirtless and barefoot for the new Interview Magazine where he talks about his strained relationship with his father he says: “The only thing my father gave me that was of any value to me is pain. The only time my dad will ever talk to me is when I need him at work. He knows to pick up the Skype phone call, and he knows what I’m looking for. It’s not to say ‘Hey, Dad.’ We manipulate each other. We service each other. I use him when I go to work. It’s not a real conversation; it’s just an excuse to rev up. He’s the marionette puppeteer. My dad is the key to most of my base emotions. My greatest and my worst memories are with my father, all my major trauma and major celebration came from him. It’s a negative gift. And I’m not ready to let go of it, because anger has a lot of power.” Maybe that's why he's been acting so erratic lately. This guy has deep rooted issues that need a psychological evaluation pronto.
Quinn Jaxon's new thread, since the last one got closed...
U2 guitarist The Edge faces protests over a plan to build five mansions on 156 acres in Malibu Just a week after Bono raised eyebrows for defending Ireland’s controversial tax laws, The Edge is facing a Champagne socialist dilemma all of his own. The U2 guitarist has found himself the target of a potential environmental protest as he moved to end his eight-year battle to be granted planning permission for a mansion development in Malibu. The musician aims to build no less than five new residences on the 156 acres of land he owns that overlooks the Pacific Ocean on the Californian coastline. The Coastal Commission of California originally rejected his application in 2011, but he has since put negotiations into motion and is awaiting a final decision from the body in January 2015. The Edge, whose real name is the far less rock ‘n’ roll David Evans, argues that all five (count them) of his potential properties would be environmentally friendly. Not so, say local environmentalists, who claim that the development would ruin the landscape and damage surrounding wildlife.
Since the last thread seems to be locked up/inaccessible since last week. More about those towns we were chatting about. Don't misbehave and don't make me snap you with my fuckin' dishtowel!
You can vote to stop the GOP. But voting for The Green Party won't stop the GP. That actually will not work. So if you want to stop the GOP, you cannot vote for The Green Party.
So, Sparkle's squiring his new girlfriend, the increasing grumpy looking FKA Twigs, around Europe caused a few problems for the inhabitants of HKNs Haven. How DOES one keep arguing that Stewart-Pattinson are secretly married in the light of the new couple? Why, it's simple! Twigs is merely a business investment, that Pattinson is helping as a friend. Or he's 'managing' her as 'a tax break'. Or he's provoke hatred against himself and Twigs on twitter to 'deflect hatred from KStew' in the light of her Gitmo wittering. Problem solved. And nerves at the Haven have been further calmed by yesterday's shock revelation by Vern that she has a 'Cousin Nephew' in LA who has journalist friends in Robsten's 'inner circle' and - phew! - Cousin Nephew says all is well! Thank goodness for imaginary inbred relatives!
Seems some folk are offended.
How does Datalounge feel about them?
I'm finally watching it tonight. What can I expect: a life changing movie or a boring piece of schlock?
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.
I'm not an e!derghey, but I'm no baby ghey either, and in any case, let's be real: once you hit 30, there's always those moments of hearing something on TV, reading something online, etc. that make you feel old. Hearing that X number of years has gone by since your favorite album was released, or favorite TV show was on the air, etc. Is there a certain recent thing you heard or saw somewhere that made you feel old?
What's it like? I've never been, and a friend of mine, also a newbie, is trying to get me to go, just to see what it's like and to say we experienced it. Specifically the westside club on 20th btwn 5th and 6th. I imagine old, out of shape, disease riddled guys walking around leering at anyone in decent shape under 50.
Things got off to a supremely strange start at Florida’s gubernatorial debate on Wednesday when sitting Governor Rick Scott (R) found out that his opponent, Charlie Crist, brought a small fan with him to keep cool. Citing the rules, Scott refused to join the debate stage. The resulting temper tantrum left a visibly confused audience listening to Crist effectively have a debate by himself. The moderator does his best to put a brave face on what is, perhaps, the oddest debate in recent memory by explaining the situation to the crowd: “We have an extremely peculiar situation… Florida governor Rick Scott, our incumbent governor and the Republican candidate for governor is also in the building,” he explains. Hoping that perhaps cooler heads have prevailed, the moderator hopefully calls for Scott to come out from behind the curtain. He doesn’t. “We have been told that Governor Rick Scott will not be participating in this debate,” he concludes. The audience boos. The incident was started when Crist brought a small fan to the debate platform so that he could keep cool during the debate. Scott, presumably fan-less, demanded that Crist be prevented from using the cooling device because the debate rules forbid the use of electronic devices. It seems likely that Scott believed that he held the moral high ground regarding said fan and therefore his stubborn unwillingness to actually join the debate would be viewed as a righteous protest against injustice, but the audience – who came to hear a debate, damn it – weren’t buying it. They first laugh, then begin to get angry. After it becomes clear that Scott was serious about never coming out because of a fan, they start yelling. After a few more minutes of the moderators discussing whether or not the fan was, in fact, fair game, they simply start the debate without Scott. Crist, sensing an opportunity, even landed a choice soundbite, asking the room, “Are we really going to debate about a fan? Or are we going to talk about education, and the environment, and the future of our state? I mean really?” After several more minutes, Scott finally emerged and the post-fan debate began in earnest. Later, both campaigns sought to justify their actions. Crist’s campaign tweeted out an agreement, purportedly signed by both candidates, that specifically stated that Crist would be allowed to use a fan.
Dress shirts, t-shirts, wifebeaters, jackets, whatever. For the nitpickers, don't shit over someone's post if you don't happen to like it for whatever reason. Just move on! Other than that, let the hotness begin!
Speculate. One of the greatest accomplishments of all time by mankind is the mostly peaceful dissolution of the Soviet Union and it's satellites. This kind of thing almost never happens. The French or Russian Revolutions are more typical of this kind of thing. How long do you think N Korea can keep the balls in the air without dropping them? Will they invade the South to unite their people by creating a foreign enemy to instill fear? Will their soldiers defect en masse? Now that they've got the bomb (thanks W!), how can we defend the South? Or will they lumber on for another 20 or 40 years? How will President Palin react?
This inflatable “Christmas tree” erected in Paris is making passers-by feel a little uncomfortable. The 80ft-high object is raising eyebrows because of its uncanny resemblance to a sex toy, but is actually an installation by American artist Paul McCarthy. Simply called “Tree”, it is towering over the Place Vendome as part of a contemporary art fair. McCarthy, who is no stranger to controversy, designed the piece specifically for the “Fiac” festival but it has not been taken well by some critics. Printemps Francais, a far-right group that opposes gay marriage, has been complaining on Twitter. Paul McCarthy's sculpture is for the FIAC Art Fair Paul McCarthy's sculpture is for the FIAC Art Fair “Taxpayers – this is where your money goes!” said one post, while another claimed the Place Vendome had been “disfigured” and Paris “humiliated”. It is one of McCarthy’s many Christmas-themed works, including a controversial “Santa Claus” intended for Rotterdam in 2001. It was never placed next to a concert hall as planned because of arguments about another suggestive Christmas tree that earned the statue the nickname “butt plug gnome”. An inflatable sculpture called 'Complex Pile' by American contemporary artist Paul Mccarthy on display at the 'Inflation!' exhibition An inflatable sculpture called 'Complex Pile' by American contemporary artist Paul Mccarth on display at the 'Inflation!' exhibition He also created a giant inflatable installation depicting excrement in Hong Kong last year and in 2011, an exhibition of his work in London included a pair of animatronic George W Bush sculptures having sex with pigs.
Why oh why must all the HOT ones die so young?
It looks like the other thread is closed so I thought I would start up another on. I think this place can be hot sometimes (especially at lunchtime). They have a downstairs area that you can do whatever you want and I have been there and had fun with some super hot dudes. Looking to know if there are any other times when this place (xpressions on 53rd) is crowded - weekends? late night?
I'm one of the gays that also love watching straight pron because of the guys. Seeing the other thread about straight pron stars, I thought I'd start one with the link to who is considered the hottest by this particular website. I would add James Dean and Seth Gamble to the list. Some of the ones listed have also done gay pron . . . for instance the ever-hot Wolf Hudson. Pics from the thread are not naked but may not be safe for work either. Enjoy!
This out to be good. From what I heard Christian really screwed this guy over. "Harrison Cheung - who was never paid by Bale by say he worked as his publicist for years - claims that when the Dark Knight star was approached by fans he became angry with them. Far from being flattered by the attention he would 'lecture little girls about being rude and intrusive until tears streamed down their faces, and their parents tugged them away from our table,' according to the Huffington Post which reviewed the new book. Also details an alleged incident when Bale received a letter from a fan at his home. Cheung claims Bale sent him a fax, saying the fan should be 'eliminated', writing: 'Better to be safe than sorry. 'A screwdriver thrust thru the eyeball into the brain prevents any screaming. Let me know how it goes.' Cheung also writes how Bale did not attend his Batman co-star Heath Ledger's funeral in 2008, following the star's accidental overdose..." Con't ..
But an ugly, deformed product of inbreeding.
or did you have to learn it on your own?
I love all of his films. My favorites are Fire Walk With Me, Inland Empire, Lost Highway & Mulholland Drive. Do any other Lynch fans on DL have theories about what is going on in Inland Empire & Mulholland Drive? I'm especially lost about Inland Empire. The film is haunting and I love to watch it but I always come away feeling very lost. What are your favorite Lynch films?
Sure, there might be a few, but is (or was) it as common as some of the media portrayed?
I watched this again last night for the first time in years, and some of the images are still floating in my head today... whether all the pieces make sense or not (I think they don't), the overall story is still strong, given that it was a TV movie-pilot for a series and David Lynch went back later and cobbled it into a single movie. Some of the images are stronger than anything he's done before or since, and the music is beautiful and truly haunting. When you see it again, Naomi Watts' performance takes on a whole new depth of meaning; it's really an Oscar-level piece of acting. And Ann Miller's casting as the landlady becomes not just a campy hoot (which it is), but an important part of the story. I'm sure some people find it pretentious, or just something David Lynch made up as he went along. But does anyone else like it? (If you haven't seen it and you plan to, best to close this thread right now; the less you know going into "Mulholland Drive" the better.)
More and more websites are using FB for the 'comments' section of their articles. I feel trapped because I often want to comment on certain articles but I don't have a FB account and I don't want to create one just for that. They should have alternatives but they often don't. I know this is mostly done to stop trolling but how many people can't participate in a discussion because of this? I hate it!
He looks an awful lot like my dad did 25 years ago. Am I fucked up?
I love how it's sort of a secret treat that no one sees. Then when the ass cheeks are spread apart, there it is, like a puckered little brown rose. I also love the natural scents from it.
I know we are brainwashed to think anything over a 4 is FAT, fat, fat, but I don''t think this is a size six. My sister is a size 12 and is built like this and about the same size. \ \ Why would you like about something that people can see?
You probably have a few friends so opinionated about the sourcing and quality of their food, part of you wants to test whether they'd really know the difference between crap and cuisine. You love those friends, but you also think they're being snobs, and you'd just love to troll them hard. Well now you don't have to, because two guys named Sacha and Cedrique did it for you. As you can see in the video below, they're on a mission to prank organic food experts in the Netherlands. They pack their bags full of a mix of McDonald's food and real organic food and present it to these connoisseurs of the finer things in life. Check out this hilarious culinary experiment and skip to about the 2-minute mark if you want to see the real golden nuggets.

As Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York and Republican presidential candidate, joined protesters outside the opera house Monday evening to denounce the work, which he said offered “a distorted view of history,” the current mayor, Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, defended the Met’s right to perform it. He said that Mr. Giuliani “had a history of challenging cultural institutions when he disagreed with their content.” “I don’t think that’s the American way,” Mr. de Blasio said at a news conference Monday morning in Broad Channel, Queens, apparently alluding to Mr. Giuliani’s efforts as mayor to stop funding the Brooklyn Museum of Art after had it mounted an exhibition that Mr. Giuliani deemed offensive. “I think the American way is to respect freedom of speech. Simple as that.”
I say all of them are.

It's like getting a patent for hurricanes, tornadoes, or hell itself, right?

Please share your kind thoughts.
I don't get it: are members of all Japanese boy bands gay as hell or is that just the way men dress over there? Even if that's just their fashion I honestly can't imagine any of these lip glossed twinks licking pussy. And why would any horny teenage girl like their idols dressed like this?
I find myself searching for a cozy destination to spend the holidays. No family, no clingy friends. Just me, the mountains and a small town. Couldn't think of a better way to spend the last week of the year. What about you? Are you going to spend it alone?
Facially and/or "bodily".
I'm sick of the fake, weepy, "we're all sisters," 20-stinks-per-woman, soft-piano-lady-shit-commercialed, hectoring, kitty-puppy-baby-ooooooo, "it's SO rich," weight-obsessed, inauthentic fakery that has become our culture. The result of much-needed women's equality movements is a society where nasty, backstabbing, miserable cunts demand nonstop messaging on the gooey qualities of life, usually with voices all crackling, fried and squeaky, since they are complete phony messes. People here make all the typical lesbian jokes, and I have enough lesbian friends to know where some of it is as true as the gay-male jokes. But a lot of lesbians are well-grounded, no-nonsense and smart, and not connected at all to this shit. (Except concerning the execrable Ellen, today's Rosie). Straight women? Find ONE who isn't running around with colored hair, playing manipulative games in the workplace, being incompetent, and pretty much dragging down every organization into which they dig their fake nails. And look at the DL. These cunts, whether phishing or being themselves, are fucking up the beloved fucked-up place. So fuck your rotten tits and get the fucking pink off the dog food, packaged lettuce and candy bars, the balloons and garlands and everything else. And fuck your faux worship of a bunch of dead "survivors" you insist on crying about. We all die, of a lot of things. You don't need a whole fucking month of everybody's lives to celebrate the pretense of your victimhood and strength. WHILE THE MONEY GOES TO A HOMOPHOBIC ORGANIZATION OF ASSHOLES.
Why doesn't this bitch have a record deal? Here she is singing 'CIRCUS'!
(by request) It could be interesting to have a thread on people who get caught in lies on the Internet. We see people who quickly delete tweets and instagram posts when they are caught in their fiction. We see it at places like comments on magazine stories, IMDb forums, and even at DL where the comments can't be erased by the person who posted them. Their fiction stands out for all to see.
Made an official Part 16 so we can more easily keep track of the threads... someone please summarize in R1
In addition to a large part for Papi Raul, it was all about one of DL's favorite topics-- SLUT-SHAMING! It almost made up for the lack of Danny Pino. Oh, and I guess that new blonde Italian guy is now a regular.
What creates a stalker? Are they mentally ill from the start? Or does something short circuit in their mind when they decide that THIS is the man/woman of their dreams? The majority of the stalkers don't seem dangerous, but how can one tell if a stalker is the garden variety stalker sending love letters, or thinking they are in a relationship with the famous person or if they are a dangerous stalker sneaking onto the famous person's property with a gun and duct tape? How do famous people protect themselves from stalkers?
Broad category, but hopefully this thread will catch a lot of sexy men, in and out clothing!

I had a huge crush on Frank. We hung out some, but he never had any interest in me. Cute and funny, he had tons of friends. He invited me to a holiday party he was having in his apartment. So excited to spend an evening with him, I arrived with a bottle of wine. He opened the door, smiled and said, "Oh, I forgot I had invited you."

Months ago, Richard Dawkins talked about an incident that happened to him at age 13 where he was fondled by a teacher, and he doesn't feel like it was a big deal. How old were you? How severe was the abuse? (e.g. having your genitals fondled vs. being anally raped) Was it a single incident, or was it an ongoing situation? If ongoing, how long did it go on for? It it something that haunts you, or do you have a "whatever" attitude looking back on it? Do you feel as though it had a long term negative influence on you? Like, do you have sexual dysfunctions, relationship problems, drug/alcohol addictions, etc. that you attribute to the sex abuse?
Continuing the tradition!
Last week I visited a Men's Health Clinic here in S.C. to try a new treatment to help with my erectile dysfunction. I could only get halfway hard, usually enough to jerk off but not enough to fuck. Being an active top this was becoming very frustrating. The clinic advertised their treatment was guaranteed to work, so I thought I'd give it a try. Basically, they've created a mechanism that uses a small syringe with a thin needle that is injected into the base of the penis. At first I said no way, but when they did the injection I felt no pain at all. I had an erection in about 5 minutes that was harder than I've had since I was 15 and it lasted for over an hour. Hard as a rock. Even ejaculation doesn't make it soft. It just takes some time. The first time I tried fucking the guy couldn't believe how hard I was and after we both came, he wanted to try again so I did and came twice, still hard as a rock. There are a couple of issues. The hardness can last too long, which can be brought down by holding the penis by the base for a few minutes to force the medication down. Also, it was a little painful the first few times since I was stretching parts that hadn't been stretched in many years. It contains four different medications, which is created by the doctor specifically for you. And it is expensive. But when compared to the price of Cialis, which I've tried several times but didn't like the result, it's actually cheaper. I'm not quite ready to endorse it since I need to try it a while longer. But no doubt, you will get an erection and you will last forever. I would like to get opinions on anyone who has tried this for an extended period of time and if they experienced any unexpected side effects.

My life isn't perfect, but I'm grateful for what I have. I don't have a great job and I'm always broke, but I have a partner who loves me, good friends and a supportive (if crazy) family. My health isn't perfect but I don't have anything that will kill me. I drive a beat up old car, but I have a car! Many can't even afford one. I have anger issues and can sometimes be cranky or rude, but I try to stay positive, see the good in others, and treat people as I would like to be treated. I struggle with depression so it's important to keep things in perspective. What's good in your life?

73-year-old Jacqueline Laurent Auger, has had her past catch up with her after pupils went online and discovered softcore porn films she appeared in around 45 years previously. She has now been dismissed from her position teaching drama workshops at the elite Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf in Montreal. “As educators, we had to ask what message is transmitted to all our students, boys and girls, from the first year of high school to the fifth, by the fact that the teacher of their drama workshops could now be seen on the Internet in the most suggestive of scenes,” the school wrote in an online statement, adding that they wanted to preserve “a calm setting free of allusions or discomfort that is unfavourable to our educational mission.” Laurent Auger has called the move “completely absurd. I’m 73 years old. When I made those films I must have been 28 or 29. It was to make a living so that after[wards] I could work with great teachers and actors, in Paris and in Quebec. Come on.” So do you support the firing?

A café owner in Australia has sparked fierce debate after declaring her establishment is not tolerant of children who misbehave. Jodie Morris, owner of The Little French Café in Broadmeadow, near Sydney, New South Wales, caused a stir among parents when she posted a message onto her business’ Facebook page, stating that if parents are looking for an area for their children to “run rampant and annoy other customers,” then her café is “not child friendly”. “However, if you would like to bring your children here, and they are happy to sit at a table with you, whilst you enjoy a coffee, and are well behaved, then please come in,” she wrote. The post, which has since been removed, was attacked by many as “arrogant” and an “attack on parents,” with one parent stating the café had “just alienated a lot of people”. Owner Jodie Morris says business is better than it's ever been But many showed support for Ms Morris, who is a mother herself, claiming there is “nothing ruder” than a parent who allows their child to misbehave in public, while others claimed the café would “probably get more custom” from its public stance on unruly children. “Everyone’s said oh you’re going to lost so much business but we’re the busiest we’ve ever been,” Ms Morris told the Daily Mail Australia. The original Facebook post was in response to a one star review the café had been given by a woman, who had asked if it was child friendly. Ms Morris has since taken her Facebook post down, claiming that it was taken “completely the wrong way”, but has posted a follow up to clarify her position. “I have been subjected to children emptying salt and pepper shakers into my fireplaces, parents changing nappies on my loungers, kids grinding their own food into my carpet, parents sitting babies in nappies in the middle of dining tables, kids running around the café like it’s a Formula 1 track, jumping on the furniture, screaming – just for fun – not pain, and encouraged by their parents, upsetting the rest of the customers and I’d really just had enough,” she wrote. Ms Morris added that she is a single parent and that she “scrimped” every penny to put into her café, which she is “very proud of”. “When I have to stand there and watch people disrespect and damage my belongings and property, it breaks a piece of my heart every time,” she said. “Some will agree with my stance, some will not, but it’s my stance for my business.”
Let's list ugly women married to hot men. I'll start. Julianne Nicholson and Johnathan Cake. (no defending. no saying she's not ugly etc. the poster is always right.)

Because I'm a bitch.
Inspired by that "Liza speaking French" thread. So which celebs added fake info to their bios? Can anyone really beat Raymond Burr and his fake wives and kids?
Why on earth did they cast that weasely looking guy in the lead? He can't act!
Sean Johnson, a 19-year-old Floridian was caught taking a stuffed horse off of a shelf at Walmart, masturbating with it in the bedding department, then returning it, covered in semen, to the shelf. Today, police released a photo of his equine paramour. Good-looking stuffed horse! Nicely done, Sean. We've also learned a few more details about Johnson's afternoon of passion. A report from a Brooksville, Fla., police officer, for instance, contains the tidbit that Johnson utilized "short fast movements" to bring himself to fruition, and that his ejaculate ended up mostly on the stuffed animal's "chest area." In a statement given to police, Johnson admitted that he had committed a "horrible act" and that he is "extremely sorry."
When they get fat, do they gain weight in their genitals? You know, the lips?
I dont know how to link the article but apparently they're reenacting the beginning of season 5 of Will and Grace. I know u bitches got shit to say.
And manages to shade the talentless piece of shit that is Rob Schneider at the same time!
I guess everybody is pissed that she made/ran it.
Hobos on the street
Is she supportive now? How did she treat his husband who just committed suicide? Was it similar to how she treated Timothy Scott or has she advanced in her tolerance.
What about the children!!!!
Goodbye to the Senate seats in Virginia and Michigan!
I've been doing Crossfit and for the first time ever I feel confident enough to show off my new body. What would be a good sexy costume that shows off maximum skin? I was thinking Tarzan but that might not be original enough to win the costume contest. There's $5000 at stake and a trip to Hawa'ii and an iPhone 6 Poz and an iPad. I want to win at least the iPad!
You with your pageboy, your opera glasses, your velvet cloak, your lorgnette, your high-button shoes, your pearls -- it's so five minutes ago, I don't even know how your wife puts up with it.
Now, Watts and her boyfriend, Brian James Lucas - who said they were "appalled" by the charges - face a fine and the possibility of up to six months in jail if found guilty.
And they're not even nice tats, either!

Any guesses?: A couple of years ago, this famous female actor became concerned that gravity and the aging process were taking a toll on her face. She decided to go beyond the usual Botox and collagen treatments and get cheek implants to restore her youthful contours. Unfortunately for her, the cheek implants looked ridiculous and unnatural on her face. She had them removed a few months ago for a new project. Thank goodness. In our opinion, she looks much better without them. Will she ever admit to having had plastic surgery? Oh hell no! She wants you to believe that everything about her is – and always has been – natural.
I knew that would be the case..... just like with the Duke University frat brothers. Media and university professors wanted to hang them on the spot, but then, hey, turns out all the evidence was on the students' side and then the DA got disbarred for outright ignoring evidence(among other things).
Well, that was a great opening! Glad to have Ollie, Felicity, Roy, and Diggle back!
I'd say this one qualifies by any standard.

I've just read a great book called "The Sick Habsburgs" which unfortunately isn't available in English yet. Here's an excerpt from the chapter about the inbreeding among them: [quote] Emperor Maximilian II married his cousin Maria of Spain (their fathers were brothers). Philip II of Spain (Maria's brother) married his niece Anna, his sister Maria's and cousin Maximilian's daughter. His sister therefore also became his mother-in-law and his cousin became his father-in-law, who was also a cousin to his own daughter. Philip II himself became great-uncle of his own children. The son of Anna and Philip II was Philip III who married Margareth, the granddaughter of emmperor Ferdinand I, so Ferdinand I was at the same time the bride's grandfather and the groom's great-grandfather. Don't forget, these people actually ruled most of Europe for centuries. And no wonder your average Habsburg looked like this:

Wackadoodle artistic genius Paul McCarthy (no relation to Jenny McCarthy as I said "genius") created an 80 foot tall inflatable green sculpture and plopped it down in the heart of Paris. Despite being called Tree, it was somehow mistaken for a butt plug, raising the ire of anti-art wingnuts who vandalized it. And the way you vandalize a giant inflatable green butt plug is to deflate it. Poor giant butt plug, we hardly knew you! See link for yourself!

Out TV/Radio personality Clay Cane is hot with dreds...
Any Canadians remember this movie? It used to air on CityTV a couple times a year, until they stopped showing movies. I haven't seen it in years.
Back in June it seems that the people aboard a UK flight witnessed what they claim was a flying man. Looks like the pilots and crew saw it too. The man did not appear on radar. The pilots are upset by the sighting and are trying to convince themselves that he was supported by some type of canopy, whatever that is.
Do their own bodies turn them on? Are they attracted to themselves? If so, why would they be attracted to their own bodies?
I'm sure he's not a gardener. He appeared in a YouTube video called the Cream Pies a few months ago -- and now he's the resident hunk. Boy is he HOT!
I'm in my early 30's and I have lived in London and New York... I came out onto the circuit scene at 19 and everyone had to be buff to be noticed... If you weren't, you were just out... A fug musclehead had a thousand times greater chance to land a decent lay than a very, very, very cute twink... I got me some roids STAT and did alright for myself... (Haven't done them for years though). But... I was talking to a friend and we were discussing that all that's changing... Fewer and fewer queens are now into the muscled look, and the ones that still are are generally the now aging, then mid-thirty-somethings that granted me my degree in Body Fascism well over a decade ago... Steroids now seem restricted to those vintage queens, and to grunting straight halfwits... Primarily... Some of my fellow younger "apprentice muscleheads" of the late 90s are still at it, but not the majority... Twelve years ago, opening the social pages of the fag rags meant glossing over pages and pages of abs and pecs glistening in sweat... Now, other than for the mostly G4P go-go dancers, not so much... What say you? Is muscle going out of style?... I think Signorile's "Life Outside" would have to be rewritten... There are now other fads. Every fag still works out, but she's a lot less results-obsessed than when the towers fell.

Why does this seem so frowned upon here? I'm just curious why so many here at DL are so nasty about people like me who live modestly, whether by choice or chance. Hey, if you're into money and toys and "stuff", fine - but why put others down who have less? I used to live it up and make a LOT of money, then I got laid off and ended up blowing through my savings because I wanted to continue living in the style in which I became accustomed. When the money was running out, and I still didn't have a "good enough" job, I panicked. Gone were the expensive nights on the town, glamorous vacations and trips abroad in 5 star hotels. Many of my "friends" with whom I shared my wealth (booze, trips, fancy dinners, nice holiday gifts) stopped calling. And then I embraced it, and shockingly, began to love this new, paired down existence. I moved from NYC to a small, gay friendly town in Oregon. I make about 30K a year, drive a very NON-luxury car, grow vegetables, roast coffee, share a few beers and great conversation on my porch with neighbors a few evenings a week (when it's not too cold).. And no, I am *not* a hipster or a hippie, although some may see it that way. I'm happier than I have ever been. In a humorous turn of events, as soon as I made peace with my new lifestyle, I was offered a job back in NYC that paid as much as before. I happily turned it down. I look back at who I was a few years ago, and my stomach turns. I was such a pretentious, greedy, selfish, arrogant asshole. Has anyone else done this, or is looking to do this? How do you feel with less?
I caught her latest(?) movie last night and was distracted by her face. The movie was actually kind of entertaining but WTF is it with her face? I figured out that her forehead is botoxed to hell and back, it didn''t move the entire movie making her lower face compensate and she horrible crows feet around her eyes. Her lips look worse as she gets older and I can only hope she didn''t plump them up and her skin looks as if it was scrubbed with a wire brush and then they tried to cover it up. Even makeup can''t hide the weird texture. She also has a bloated look to her cheeks. Are there any DL cosmetic surgery buffs out there who can explain this oddity of nature?
New thread since the other one filled up
The ghost stories that I find most impressive are the ones that involve phone calls from the dead. Usually the person hears a ringing phone and answers it. They are able to identify the voice as a specific person they know but there is a lot of static on the line. The call usually ends abruptly. Then later on they learn that such call was impossible because the person had actually died prior to them receiving the call. That's the standard claim of these types of incidents. There are other, less common reports involving phone calls. Some even are of ghosts calling other people. For instance, in the UK there was a case where a woman had a sick child and so put her to bed earlier. A man knocked on the door and said he was hear for the girl and mentioned her by name. The woman was confused and the man said and old woman called for a doctor and gave him the address and name of the child. So the doctor checks the girls and believes she may have a serious illness. She is taken to hospital and is diagnosed with meningitis. That ghost call saved her life. Recently, there was that case of that man who died in a horrible multi-car accident. His cell phone called his family 35 times, so the family believed he was still alive. However, they eventually located his body and he in fact died on impact. No explanation as to who called the family 35 times. Each time the family answered one of the calls there was no one else on the other end. These incidents even happen to famous people. Dean Koontz received a series of strange calls from an unidentified woman whom he believed sounded remarkably like his dead mother. His cell was unlisted and so he does not believe it was a random prank. Every time he answered one of the calls there would be a lot of static and a woman would softly say, "Please be careful" and then nothing else. A few days later Koontz went to see his dad at a center he was living. Koontz' father was very violent and had several incidents with staff. When Koontz entered the room his father pulled out a knife and rushed him to stab him. Koontz had to wrestle it away from his father. He then walked out of the room holding the knife but was meat by cops brandishing guns and ordering him to drop the weapon. Someone had called the cops after seeing the struggle. Koontz was in a state of shock and didn't understand what was going on. He later claimed that he could have easily been shot and killed by the police. Koontz refused to say that he outright believes the voice was his dead mother but he does believe the voice was trying to warn him. As far as my own experiences go, I've never received any phone calls from the dead, that is while awake. However, I have had numerous dreams where I answer the telephone and either a dead friend or loved one is on the other line or a stranger whom I don't know. The calls appear trivial in nature and all conversation is about routine, normal stuff. Nothing newsworthy or earth-shattering. The conversations all appear friendly and light. I say appear because of one strange detail. The very instant I become aware that the person I am talking to is dead I immediately wake up.
Last night at his late night show at the Trocadero, comedian Hannibal Buress did an extended bit about Philadelphia native Bill Cosby, calling him a rapist. Cosby has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting multiple women, including Barbara Bowman in Philadelphia magazine. He has not, however, ever been criminally charged with rape (the legal definition of which varies by jurisdiction).* The above recording starts about 15-20 seconds into it. “It’s even worse because Bill Cosby has the fuckin’ smuggest old black man persona that I hate,” Buress said. “He gets on TV, ‘Pull your pants up black people, I was on TV in the 80s! I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom!’ Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches.” "I guess I want to just at least make it weird for you to watch Cosby Show reruns," Buress says later. "I've done this bit on stage and people think I'm making it up.... when you leave here, google 'Bill Cosby rape.' That shit has more results than 'Hannibal Buress.'" Buress — who has done stand-up for years and is a regular on Comedy Central's Broad City — praised Bill Cosby: Himself in GQ, and noted how hard it is not to curse on stage. He specifically praised Cosby's bit on drugs, which is one of the funniest parts of that special. Immediately following Buress's Cosby bit, a man in front of the bar downstairs at the Troc threw up all over, causing such a commotion I first thought people had gotten into a fight over Bill Cosby.
The recent news will upset many who have followed the case but it appears that the official autopsy results support the claim of a significant altercation between Brown and the officer. Brown was shot in the hand at close range. Officer Wilson claims Brown was fighting with him and was going for his gun, forcing Wilson to fire upon Brown. Brown was also high at the time of his death, or had recently smoked marijuana before dying, but this information had already been released.
I bet no one on DL will cry victim on here like all the poor women whose nudes were leaked. These Snap Chat photos were only meant to be seen by the receiver.
I was in the 12th grade and me and Dusty Johnson from down the road had snuck off in the woods behind his house with a case of his Mama's Natural Light and was drinking and making out. He pulled down his britches and I went to sucking on his tallywacker and after awhile he asked me if he could put it up my pooper. I was pretty well lit up by then so I said I hadn't never tried nothing like that before, but he could do it if he wanted to. Next thing I knew, he had me up against a big ol' oak tree and was pouring beer on his dick to get it wet. It didn't go in real smooth, but after a while it quit hurting and started to feel good, but I had to try not to get too loud. Dusty pulled out when he was getting ready to cum and shot it all over the tree trunk. Afterwards, my legs and pecker was all skint up from straddling that tree.
I've been watching a few and it's part charming (Lucy and her kids have a certain appeal) and part excruciating (Lucy's overbearing ham-acting character are embarrassing to see.) But I welcome the opportunity to see her in gloriously overlit color, and the parade of guest stars is a time capsule in itself.
A family who buried their beloved grandmother with her mobile phone is in shock after receiving text messages from her – seemingly from beyond the grave. The elderly lady’s granddaughter had been texting the phone as part of her grieving process, never expecting to get a reply. But she was shocked when she got a comforting message on her nan’s number telling her that she was being watched over. “I’m watching over you, you’ll get through this, you’ll be alright”, the text said. Sheri Emerson, 22, a care worker from South Shields, asked who she was speaking to, and received another text: “I’m watching over you and it’s all going to get better. Just push through.” “When the reply came through at lunchtime the following day I felt sick. Crazy stuff was flashing through my mind like ‘Is she still alive?’” Miss Emerson told MailOnline. “I started getting horrible visions that someone might have dug up her grave and taken her phone, my mind was full of all sorts of really unpleasant possibilities.”
He sure does like male strippers.

The new bar opens on Friday night: [quote]As Chelsea's gay scene fades into the distance and Hell's Kitchen's blossoms, nightlife fixture Benjamin Maisani and his business partners are taking a chance on a new bar in the bustling but not quite fully gay Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. I caught up with Anderson Cooper's better half to find out why he decided to cross the river this time around, what the boys can expect from his latest venture -- the subtly named LOVEGUN -- and if it was really him I saw eating sweet potato casserole at Boston Market all those years ago.
Doesn't he know that tennis' biggest lez is one of his own? ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Russian Tennis Federation President Shamil Tarpischev has been fined $25,000 by the WTA Tour and suspended from tour involvement for a year for questioning Serena and Venus Williams' gender in comments on Russian television last week. Tarpischev appeared on the Russian late-night show "Evening Urgant" alongside former WTA player Elena Dementieva last week. When Dementieva was asked what it was like to play against the Williams sisters, Tarpischev jumped in and referred to them as the "Williams brothers," according to multiple reports. After a back-and-forth with the show host and Dementieva, who did not laugh at the comment, Tarpischev reportedly continued: "It's frightening when you look at them. But really you just need to play against the ball." The WTA Tour said Friday that the $25,000 fine is the maximum allowed under tour rules and that it is seeking Tarpischev's removal as chairman of the Kremlin Cup for one year. The tour also said Tarpischev owes the Williams sisters a personal apology. "The statements made by Shamil Tarpischev on Russian television with respect to two of the greatest athletes in the history of women's tennis are insulting, demeaning and have absolutely no place in our sport," WTA Tour chairman and CEO Stacey Allaster said in a statement. "Mr. Tarpischev's statements questioning their genders tarnish our great game and two of our champions," the statement continued. "His derogatory remarks deserve to be condemned and he will be sanctioned.'' Tarpischev said Saturday that his comments were only meant as jokes and he doesn't understand why he was banned for a year by the WTA Tour. Asked whether he regretted his comments, Tarpischev told The Associated Press at the Kremlin Cup that the program on which he spoke was "a humorous show," adding: "I don't answer stupid questions." When asked about his ban, Tarpischev said: "I can't comment. I don't understand it." Dave Haggerty, the president and chairman of the U.S. Tennis Association, also called on Tarpischev to issue a formal apology to the sisters. "As the president of the Russian Tennis Federation and a member of the International Olympic Committee, Mr. Tarpischev is expected to conduct himself with the highest degree of integrity and sportsmanship,'' Haggerty said in a statement. "Unfortunately, his comments do not embody either of these traits and in fact were reprehensible.''
Tell the truth.
"What interests me is how quickly it got pushed into the social consciousness," McConaughey said in the interview of the movement to alter the Redskins nickname. "We were all fine with it since the 1930s, and all of a sudden we go, 'No, gotta change it'? This guy is a complete douchebag.
But what else is new? Every time you turn around this crazy bitch is babbling to the press about Alec Baldwin & their marriage that didn't happen...OVER 30 FUCKING YEARS AGO! I've attached a new clip of her pathetically gushing like a schoolgirl to "Liberal Media Darling" Oprah Winfrey's Own Network about her first meeting with Alec. There also was a long & rambling recent blog post on Janine's website all about Alec. Not the first time she's devoted a post to him. & if you Google "Janine Turner" & "Alec Baldwin" you'll find that she's CONSTANTLY dishing about her time with him to various news outlets & disk jockeys. It's been 30 years. Has she no shame? Well she's a card-carrying member of the "Tea Party" so I guess I've got my answer to that. Janine also dated (fucked) Mikhail Baryshnikov, Sylvester Stallone & Troy Aikman. But never a peep about them. It's all about Alec Baldwin! Can it be any more obvious that the bitch still loves him after all these years & rues the day she let that Sweet Cock slip between her lips & out of her life forever?
I was checking Snopes to see if this is true, and it says Mixed. The Right is in an uproar this week over it. Here's the report: My friends, the persecution of Christian pastors has begun in this country. We previously warned about the efforts of the Freedom from Religion Foundation and its secretive settlement with the IRS allowing them to demand sermons to scrutinize for “political activity.” Well, it has indeed happened, in one of the reddest of red states in the reddest county in America: Houston, Harris County, Texas. As reported by Fox News, “The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity or Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court. “The city’s subpoena of sermons and other pastoral communications is both needless and unprecedented,” Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christina Holcomb said in a statement. “The city council and its attorneys are engaging in an inquisition designed to stifle any critique of its actions.” ADF, a nationally-known law firm specializing in religious liberty cases, is representing five Houston pastors. They filed a motion in Harris County court to stop the subpoenas arguing they are “overbroad, unduly burdensome, harassing, and vexatious.” If there is anything that should unify Americans, it should be an assault on Christian ministers. It is absolutely amazing that the Obama administration sends a personal congratulatory note to the Islamic center in Oklahoma that spawned Alton Nolen who beheaded a 54-year-old American grandmother — and we have this openly lesbian progressive socialist tyrant allowing a subpoena against Christian pastors. This is the test case (and as it happens I was just in Houston last week and will be back next Monday) and this is unconscionable! However, if this case is successful, it will be replicated elsewhere — and where is the Left screaming out about First Amendment rights of these pastors: “Freedom of religion and the free exercise thereof?” Where is the ACLU? After all, they care so much about the rights of unlawful enemy combatants aka Islamic jihadists and terrorists. “Political and social commentary is not a crime,” attorney Holcomb said. “It is protected by the First Amendment.” Fox says, “the subpoenas are just the latest twist in an ongoing saga over Houston’s new non-discrimination ordinance. The law, among other things, would allow men to use the ladies room and vice versa. The city council approved the law in June.” This is just how upside down Mayor Parker is and reflects her intent to establish a radical far left, gender-blind agenda and through coercion and intimidation, destroy any opposition – including church leaders. This is the tyranny of the Left and the radical gay agenda in full display. And I just have to ask, how does this bring anyone into alignment with the gay community if they are fully supportive of these initiatives? Houston is home to Pastor Joel Osteen and I wonder if he’s going to make a stand and speak out — or is his ministry just for show? I can bet that just up the road in San Antonio, Pastor John Hagee won’t be taking this lying down. And what about Pastor T.D. Jakes up in Dallas — where does he stand? Many people laughed when the progressive socialists came out with their “Turn Texas Blue” campaign – who’s laughing now? The State Capitol of Texas, Austin, is well known as a bastion of progressive socialists and now look at what’s happened in Houston — perhaps Gov. Rick Perry should stop going to Blue states and asking them to move to Texas. Leftist progressives are like locusts; wherever they migrate they bring along their destructive policies and agenda in order to infest their new host — just look at how the migration of leftist progressives from California has affected Colorado? And now it’s happening to Texas. Here’s a clear example of the radical gay agenda and tyranny of Houston Mayor Parker. Per Fox, “the Houston Chronicle reported opponents of the ordinance launched a petition drive that generated more than 50,000 signatures – far more than the 17,269 needed to put a referendum on the ballot. However, the city threw out the petition in August over alleged irregularities.” As voter referendums supporting traditional marriage are being tossed aside by courts, judicial activism and legislating from the bench is alive and well. “After opponents of the bathroom bill filed a lawsuit, the city’s attorneys responded by issuing the subpoenas against the pastors. The pastors were not part of the lawsuit. However, they were part of a coalition of some 400 Houston-area churches that opposed the ordinance. The churches represent a number of faith groups – from Southern Baptist to non-denominational.” Mayor Parker won’t explain why she wants to inspect the sermons — and what makes her believe she has the power to do so anyway. Mayor Parker’s director of communications, Janice Evans, said “We don’t comment on litigation.” Fox reports that “ADF attorney Stanley suspects the mayor wants to publicly shame the ministers. He said he anticipates they will hold up their sermons for public scrutiny. In other words – the city is rummaging for evidence to “out” the pastors as anti-gay bigots. Among those slapped with a subpoena is Steve Riggle, the senior pastor of Grace Community Church. He was ordered to produce all speeches and sermons related to Mayor Annise Parker, homosexuality and gender identity. The mega-church pastor was also ordered to hand over “all communications with members of your congregation” regarding the non-discrimination law. “This is an attempt to chill pastors from speaking to the cultural issues of the day,” Riggle told me. “The mayor would like to silence our voice. She’s a bully.” Rev. Dave Welch, executive director of the Texas Pastor Council, also received a subpoena. He said he will not be intimidated by the mayor.” I’ve said before that America is under assault from the unholy alliance of progressive socialists, Islamo-fascists, and secular humanists. What is happening in Houston is wrong on so many levels, it defies logic and reason but it is to be expected from the tyranny of the Left. If Mayor Parker is successful, it will happen in other major American cities under radical progressive socialist control. It is time for all — especially Christian Pastors — to stand up, “be strong and courageous,” and defy this illegal edict reminiscent of Henry the Eighth, who proclaimed himself head of state and head of church. Mayor Annise Parker is out of control, and knowing the backbone of true Texans and Houstonians, she will be defeated. To the gay community, if this is what you support and believe in, you’re not positively advancing your case – but demonstrating you advocate coercion as a means. Time to rally America, and let’s send a message to Mayor Annise Parker of Houston: Molon Labe!
Seems very odd to me.
France's national debate about overt displays of religion in public -- specifically full veils worn by some Muslim women -- has resurfaced after an incident at the Paris Opera. A female spectator was asked to remove her veil or leave an Oct. 3 performance of Verdi's "La Traviata" at the company's Opera Bastille venue, according to reports from Le Monde and Agence France-Presse. A relatively young company at just more than 25 years, L.A. Opera has already experienced its share of accomplishments and hardships. Here are some of the company's milestones. (By David Ng) The woman, reportedly a tourist from the Middle East, was seated just behind the conductor and was wearing a veil that covered her mouth and nose. Certain members of the opera chorus threatened to stop the performance if the woman didn't leave. The spectator and her male companion left the performance after speaking with a representative of the opera. The news was first reported by the French publication Metronews. On Tuesday, Le Monde reported that it has obtained an internal memo from the opera saying that in the future, audience members whose faces are obscured by a veil, a hood or a mask must be refused entrance. The communication was signed by Jean-Philippe Thiellay, the opera company's associate director. The incident has resurrected France's national debate over veils, with news outlets picking up the story. A 2010 French law forbids the public wearing of veils that hide the face, though headscarves are still permissible. Those who violate the law can face a fine of 150 euros, or about $190. In France, the wearing of veils has long been controversial in a country with a large Muslim population. France has long prized secularism and has frowned on individuals wearing displays of religion in public. Later this week, the French government is expected to issue a communique to cultural institutions reminding them that it is illegal for individuals to wear a full veil in public places.

The more obscure or weird the better! The Stepford Wives- I actually have two because they are so subtly moving and scary that they sneak up on you- When Kathryn Ross goes to the shrink and says that if she is wrong about what she expects, she is crazy- and if she is right about what she suspects it is worse than if she's wrong. The entire scene is chilling and moving, and both she and the shrink are excellent in these scenes. Also love when she visits the gallery for the 2nd time and he loves her pictures and asks her what she wants from it all. She says she just wants to be remembered. It is simple and sad. Also, mine is of the last scene of Fernando Montenagro in Central Station. (She is on a bus) Extremely moving....
They treat him like he's the POTUS. Why on Earth are you so excited about having a semi-gay friendly Pope? They're all excited. How does that help your life? Others on here are starting to ask the same question. Are y'all Catholic?
A lot has been written about her turbulent public life, but give the lady credit, she raised three well adjusted children. They went to the best schools money can buy. I believe Liza is fluent in French. Her and Lorna had drug problems but have been sober for decades now. And jokes aside, Joey is the family archivist and is a successful business man when it comes to Judys legacy. Why don't they talk more about this instead of the usual drama?
Trannies lose their shit.

I bought the iPhone 6 on AT&T but am thinking of getting the bigger 6+ instead. I've never changed cell phone companies before, but think that going to Sprint will allow me to get the 6+ without paying anything (Sprint reimburses for broken AT&T contracts; I can sell my iPhone 6 on Gazelle to Sprint itself) Has anyone changed cell phone companies before? How did it go?

Is there any cable or satellite provider that carries any of these stations? In this whole global media environment, I don't understand why cable systems don't have CBC or Global from Canada, or ITV or BBC from UK, or stations in other English speaking countries (Ireland, Scotland, Australia). NOT BBC America, a channel so devoid of actual content sometimes that it played the very American "Star Trek Next Generation" as its primetime flagship show for years....but real direct content. Maybe if more Americans could see a glimpse into other countries and cultures around them, they wouldn't have their heads so up their own asses about the rest of the world.
Police say they have charged a woman who was renting a Winnipeg storage locker where the remains of six babies were found. Andrea Giesbrecht, who is 40, faces six charges of concealing a body. Const. Eric Hofley says it could be months before police find out if the woman is related to the dead infants.
Flipping around today being a news junkie, I''m more convinced than ever that Wolf Blitzer has to be fucking someone to keep his job. God damn is he bad.

That''s the only explanation.\ \ I''m done ranting. Discuss, whores.

Yay! [quote]When police arrived at the Anchorage residence around midnight, they spotted a shirtless Track Palin being led to the family’s limousine. Track’s associates, a cop noted, appeared “intent on keeping him away from me.” Track, an officer noted, “appeared heavily intoxicated” and had blood around his mouth and on his hands. He also seemed to have an injury under his left eye. While initially “belligerent,” Track agreed to exit the limo and, at his mother’s direction, speak to police. [quote]McKenna said that “the problem was that Bristol and Willow were drunk as were their boyfriends.” McKenna added that after Bristol punched the party host “in the face six times,” a “bunch of wives tackled her ass.” [quote]An “extremely agitated” Willow Palin told an officer that the party host had assaulted her sister and that “several guys were on top of her sister when she was on the ground.” Willow claimed that “an older lady” pushed her, and that “people were saying things like ‘Fuck the Palins.’”
Really cute. Pro-gay. What say we, DL?
When you see another guy go by and catch his eye--you hold the look a little longer than would normally. That's, of course, the gay stare. Sometimes it's accompanied by a smile.
If so, what am I doing wrong?
Is he going to be one of those actors who becomes a proud gay man at the age of 80?
So is he getting the last laugh since Mike Myers has gone wacko?

What a lovely family! -- Track began to explain to the officer how his father's 50th birthday celebration that night turned into a melee. "Alright this is my old man," Track said. "It's his birthday, okay. So we're at this party in Wasilla. Dude, surprise him with a new truck, new trailer, new wrap on the trailer. Everything was fucking kosher." As he described what happened, Todd Palin interjected periodically. Both Track and Todd agreed that the fighting started when "a father-son team" punched their friend, "Steve." "He's like a little pussy you know what I'm saying?" Track said, referring to Steve. "Like he's not gonna fight nobody. … Most innocent, basically a gay guy, but he's not." -- In one of the audio recordings, Bristol Palin spoke to an officer, saying that she had been attacked by Korey Klingenmeyer, the owner of the house where the party took place. "Can we talk in here because I have my 5-year-old in here asleep?" Bristol said, before beginning to tell her version of what happened. "I don't know who Korey is," she said. "Korey pushed me on the ground and took me by my legs and dragged me across the lawn calling me a 'cunt' and calling me a 'slut.' I don't know Korey. I don't know Korey." The police officer then took photos of Bristol's injuries. "I don't want my face in a picture right now," she said. "There's nothing on my face except for beer and makeup."

The long-awaited third movie in Sony's "Ghostbusters" franchise will update the paranormal exterminators with a cast of female characters, director Paul Feig announced Wednesday. On Twitter, Feig wrote, "It's official. I'm making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women. That's who I'm gonna call." Feig came aboard the project in August, and his tweet confirms months of speculation that his take will focus on a new generation of female Ghostbusters. The director previously worked with Katie Dippold, the screenwriter referenced in his tweet, on the female buddy-cop comedy "The Heat," starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. That film was a hit to the tune of $229 million worldwide. Feig also found success with a cast of hilarious women in 2011's "Bridesmaids," a surprise hit that helped catapult McCarthy and Kristen Wiig to movie stardom. Sony has been trying to mount a new "Ghostbusters" movie for years, and until recently the plan was to reunite the original team of Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis. Ivan Reitman, who helmed the 1984 original and 1989's "Ghostbusters 2," was to return as well. Murray, however, has proved reluctant to return to the series, and Ramis died in February. Ramis' passing ultimately prompted Reitman to drop out of directing (he's still on board as a producer), clearing the way for Feig to take the reins. With the film's course now set, the next question is obvious: Just who is Feig going to call?
Each time there is a thread about Sarah Ferguson or Prince Andrew on DL, some queens start posting ''I hope they remarry!!'' Well, here's the low-down on Prince Andrew. from Vanity FairPrince Andrew: Ties to Jeffrey Epstein and His Tenuous Position in “the Firm” “I remember when Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein first became friends,” someone who knows both men well tells Vanity Fair writer Ed Klein. “Jeffrey had Andrew put on a pair of sweatpants for the first time in his life. He had him wear blue jeans for the first time. It was Jeffrey who taught Andrew how to relax.” But the source goes on to explain that “after Jeffrey was convicted, I phoned Andrew and told him, ‘You cannot have a relationship with Jeffrey. You can’t do these things.’ And he said, ‘Stop giving me a hard time. You’re such a puritan.’ From there, our conversation descended into a screaming match, and finally Andrew said, ‘Leave me alone. Jeffrey’s my friend. Being loyal to your friends is a virtue. And I’m going to be loyal to him.’” The prince’s connection to Jeffrey Epstein has inflicted the greatest damage on his reputation. According to a sworn deposition by Juan Alessi, a former employee at Epstein’s Palm Beach estate, Andrew attended naked pool parties and was treated to massages by a harem of adolescent girls. At least three of the girls were questioned under oath about whether Andrew had had sexual contact with any of the masseuses. One of them, Sarah Kellen, refused to answer, citing her Fifth Amendment right to remain silent. Another, Adriana Ross, was asked, “Has Prince Andrew ever been involved with underage minor females to your knowledge?” She reportedly replied, “I refuse to answer.” (Prince Andrew denied having had sexual contact with any of Epstein’s girls and says he neither attended nor was aware of any naked pool parties.) “The major reason Andrew hung out with Jeffrey was to get money for Sarah Ferguson,” someone who knows both men well tells Klein. “Andrew feels responsible for Sarah.… There have been newspaper reports that Sarah got £15,000 [$24,500] from Jeffrey, but I think that Sarah has actually received hundreds of thousands of dollars from him.” (Ferguson’s spokesman confirmed that she had received £15,000 from Epstein but wasn’t aware of any additional amount.) Elsewhere in the article Klein reports that, although Andrew and Fergie’s shenanigans get a blind eye from the Queen, they do not go unnoticed by Charles. “My understanding is that Prince Charles was less than happy that Andrew was given the role of trade envoy back in 2001 after he left the navy,” Robert Jobson, author of William & Kate: The Love Story and a royal commentator for NBC News, tells Klein. “When Charles ascends the throne—which he will do despite all the talk to the contrary—he’d like the royal family to be streamlined; he wants a smaller, more cost-effective monarchy.”

Matthew McConaughey is known for many things. His starring role in True Detective is one of them. As is his Oscar-winning performance as a one-time homophobic cowboy in Dallas Buyers Club. Modesty, however, is not one of them. And he knows it, too. In fact, he’s proud of it. “I am vain,” he confirmed in an interview with US GQ magazine. “I think vanity is a good thing. It's done more good things for me than it has not.” “I have good genes,” he continued. “My dad was an athlete. I got real fortunate with that. I haven’t used a weight in three years. Plus ten pounds, minus ten pounds - I can go bam, within a week.” This, of course, is the man who made a point of thanking God, his father and, most importantly, himself during his famed Best Actor speech at the Academy Awards earlier this year. “And to my hero,” he told the star-studded audience as he accepted his Oscar. “That's who I chase. Now when I was 15 years old, I had a very important person in my life come to me and say 'who's your hero?' And I said, 'I don't know, I gotta think about that. Give me a couple of weeks.' I come back two weeks later, this person comes up and says 'who's your hero?' I said, 'I thought about it. You know who it is? It's me in 10 years.' So I turned 25. “Ten years later, that same person comes to me and says, 'So, are you a hero?' And I was like, 'not even close. No, no, no.' She said, 'Why?' I said, 'Because my hero's me at 35.' So you see every day, every week, every month and every year of my life, my hero's always 10 years away. I'm never gonna be my hero. I'm not gonna attain that. I know I'm not, and that's just fine with me because that keeps me with somebody to keep on chasing.”

Benedict Cumberbatch has defended the decision not to include overt gay sex scenes in his latest movie, The Imitation Game. The British actor plays genius codebreaker Alan Turing who helps the Allies defeat the German Nazis in World War II, only to be criminally prosecuted for being a homosexual when he is caught with a 19-year-old man in 1952. Some critics have asked why sex does not feature in the film but according to Cumberbatch, it is "not an exploration of someone's sex life". "He's chemically castrated because he admits to being a homosexual; he talks about entreating a young man to touch his penis. I mean, it's pretty explicit," he told The Wrap last month. "If you need to see that to understand that he's gay, then all is lost for any kind of subtle storytelling. The conversations are so naked in themselves that the idea of having to see two naked men wasn't something I ever thought was missing in the script." Director Morten Tyldum also commented on the lack of gay sex, adding that it was a "very conscious choice" as Turing's sexuality was "just one part of the character that [he] wanted to reveal". Keira Knightley, Allen Leech, Matthew Goode and Rory Kinnear also star alongside Cumberbatch in the film, which is already being tipped for an Oscar. It is due for release in UK cinemas on 14 November.

Federal law enforcement officials are taking an ISIL threat against Michele Bachmann so seriously that Capitol Police have given the Minnesota Republican her own security detail. An online threat against Bachmann emerged recently, according to multiple law enforcement officials familiar with the situation. Last week, Bachmann was provided a security detail in response, according to the sources. Members of the U.S. Capitol Police’s Dignitary Protection Division were briefed on the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The police security will continue until Bachmann, who will retire at the end of this Congress, is no longer in office. (more at link)

Oscar de la Renta Ben Bradlee _________?
Lena Dunham says that opening up about being date raped at college has helped her recover from the experience. The Girls creator discusses the incident in her new memoir, Not That Kind Of Girl, although she admits that she had reservations about sharing her account of what happened. Dunham is a graduate of Oberlin College in Ohio. US colleges have faced scrutiny recently over their handling of sexual assault reports, prompting protests across the country. The US Justice Department reports that one in five undergraduate women will have experienced sexual assault by graduation, but less than 5 per cent of college rape victims report the assault to law enfocement. Currently, Columbia University student Emma Sulkowicz is carrying a mattress around college until the man she accuses of raping her is no longer on campus. She calls the performance piece Carry That Weight, a reference to the burden she is being forced to endure. "The chapter about date rape in the book was a really, really terrifying thing for me to put into the world because as important as the topic is - and we are also having this massive moment of cultural awareness about campus assault, which is a very gratifying thing to see and I hope it leads to incredible change - but just sort of honestly, the idea of seeing sort of, you know, the fourth-hand UK Daily Mail headline - Lena Dunham Tells All About Rape - was - it was a nightmare to me," said Dunham on US radio show Fresh Air. "But at the same time, I think I knew that sharing that experience was - I not only felt it was important because of what I was seeing other young women go through, I felt it was important because of what it was going to give me spiritually to not be hiding that anymore." Earlier this month, Barack Obama launched a campaign entitled It’s On Us, which aims to end and address sexual assault on college campuses "It was a painful experience physically and emotionally, and one I spent a long time trying to reconcile," Dunham continued. "At the time that it happened, it wasn't something that I was able to be honest about. I was able to share pieces, but I sort of used the lens of humour, which has always been my default mode."
I LOVED "In Living Color," especially the first year or two. I think I even wrote the Wayans brothers a fan letter. Today I saw a rerun and I thought, "What did I see in it?" I don't think its held up well. Unlike Richard Pryor, for instance, whose work remains brilliant and funny.
Hmmm, 5 years for killing your girlfriend, sounds like he got away with murder. Here's hoping they rip Oscar a new one in the pen.
OK the showed aired last night. What do you think? For one thing...Lisa Weil from Gilmore Girls is scary skinny... and Viola Davis is 49 years old...just saying.

A mob of nine men beat David Sal Silva, 33, to death in Bakersfield, California, last week. They hogtied him, bashed his head with batons, picked him up and then dropped him at least twice as he screamed and pleaded for his life. They committed this crime openly – I would say in broad daylight, except that it was around midnight. Nonetheless, they slaughtered Mr. Silva on a fairly busy road, across the street from a hospital and in view of the neighborhood’s residents and passers-by. Indeed, so blatant were they that said passers-by videotaped the atrocity from beginning to end on their cell phones. Which the thugs or their accomplices then stole, menacing and intimidating the witnesses. Where are the cops in all this? Protecting their own: the nine killers are sheriffs from Kern County. When a guard at the hospital called to report a “possibly intoxicated” man in the area, they descended to exterminate him. Their excuse is the usual: resisting arrest. But the onlookers vehemently deny that. One named Sulina Quair called to report the crime and courageously told a dispatcher in the sheriff’s office, “…These cops have no reason to do this to this man." She repeatedly stressed in her comments (listen to them here by scrolling to the bottom of the article) that the attack was unprovoked murder. The victim’s screams awakened Ruben Ceballos. "When I got outside,” says Mr. Ceballos, “I saw two officers beating a man with batons and they were hitting his head so every time they would swing, I could hear the blows to his head.” (More Inside)

Seems in her forced time away from the movie screen, (she was last seen in a direct to dvd movie in 2010) she had some work done. It looks like she had some kind of eye lift surgery? But what else? She does not look liker herself anymore.
She often mentions this in interviews but I found this clip where she is being interviewed along with Charles Aznavour by some French TV: she says only a thing or two in French (and it doesn't really sound like a fluent French to me) and then she just continues in English. Did all the cameras just make her shy or is this another case of Liza whitewashing her own life story?
I'm 46 years old and am out of work for really the first time in 15 years. It's only been two months now, but it's the longest I've ever been jobless. I work in the finance industry, and have a few other times in my career utilized temp agencies that specialized in that field. I never had a problem getting placed, and some of my best jobs I got through agencies. So, I tried to work with a few agencies that seemed to have a lot of job listings. They love my resume (because I only put the last 8-10 years of work experience on it) but their tone changes completely once we meet for an interview. One of the recruiters even attempted to ignore our meeting once she saw my paperwork which revealed my age. I waited for an hour and fifteen minutes, while everyone ignored me. Finally a 22 year old walked me to a conference room and said he could do a quick interview. I said I would prefer the recruiter who was supposed to meet with me. Ten minutes later the bitch comes in and makes up a bunch of lies and blames the receptionist for the delay. She gives me the spiel to get me out the door as fast as she can and then never returns any emails or submits my resume to clients. Same thing with another recruiter. An in-house recruiter saw my resume on Indeed and urged me to apply to her very large company. I did and they responded almost immediately that my qualifications match just what they are looking for. They sent an email with a link for a company called HireVue that does digital video interviews. You're video and audio recorded answering four questions with nobody on the other end. That video is then forwarded to the recruiter who passes it along to the hiring managers. I did mine late last night and by 10 a.m. had received the no thanks email. I know my responses were good and I met all qualifications, but once they saw me they couldn't reject me fast enough. I apologize for the length of this post. I just wanted to see if anyone else is dealing with what I'm dealing with. Is there hope? Did you find a job!
Words you'd like to use, but can't because they're just not socially accepted, like: Zeitgeist Nonplussed I can't use the above, because most people would think I'm crazy, but there are times when they'd be perfect. Then there are plenty of words I have picked-up by reading, but can't use, because I don't know how they are pronounced. For example, and this actually came up this last week, the first name Urial I have no idea how to pronounce this, and there are so many possibilities.
Last night at his late night show at the Trocadero, comedian Hannibal Buress did an extended bit about Philadelphia native Bill Cosby, calling him a rapist. Cosby has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting multiple women, including Barbara Bowman in Philadelphia magazine. He has not, however, been publicly accused of rape. The above recording starts about 15-20 seconds into it. “It’s even worse because Bill Cosby has the fuckin’ smuggest old black man persona that I hate,” Buress said. “He gets on TV, ‘Pull your pants up black people, I was on TV in the 80s! I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom!’ Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches.” "I guess I want to just at least make it weird for you to watch Cosby Show reruns," Buress says later. "I've done this bit on stage and people think I'm making it up.... when you leave here, google 'Bill Cosby rape.' That shit has more results than 'Hannibal Buress.'" Buress — who has done stand-up for years and is a regular on Comedy Central's Broad City — praised Bill Cosby: Himself in GQ, and noted how hard it is not to curse on stage. He specifically praised Cosby's bit on drugs, which is one of the funniest parts of that special. Immediately following Buress's Cosby bit, a man in front of the bar downstairs at the Troc threw up all over, causing such a commotion I first thought people had gotten into a fight over Bill Cosby.
What do the gays think of him? I am oddly smitten.
I had it on good authority that this was a scary film ... but it wasn't. Does anyone have any scarier movies they want to recommend?
Yes I'm on a roll. Queen Letizia needs to eat something. But I bet she has fans here who appreciate her near-anorexic frame. King Felipe looks nice but not so bright. His sisters Elena and Cristina are really ugly. His mom made some serious anti-gay comments a few years ago. Juan Carlos is still fucking around on her too at his advanced old age. How close is Spain to becoming a republic?
Pointless bitchery aside, there have been some interesting threads/responses here on the DL. Why not thank a fellow DL'er who gave some good advice, a movie recommendation, book recommendation or just a quote that really made you laugh? I'll start.

The announcement is in November. Whose PR people are working overtime to get the cover? Who's having a good year?
Every black guy I've been with talks about his cock like its the greatest thing since sliced bread. They ask me shit like if I've ever been with a black guy and make comments about how big it and how sore I'll be. Usually when the zipper comes down I'm very disappointed. Most of the black cock I've seen has been average to small. One guy from Martinique had one nearly as big as my forearm. Seriously. So I guess my question is why do these tinymeat black guys all lie? Are they hoping I'll just accept their dick as big because they say it is?
Here we go again.
The Jan Hooks thread got me to thinking...is there any other person who would actually get mostly nice things said about them in a DL thread? Mister Rogers, maybe? He was pro-gay before there was even a word for it. So many wonderful, beautiful things he did, and was, as a person. Can it really be over a decade since he died? MARY!

and Terry Castle is a cunt. The collapse of publishing and criticism is complete. The twats have taken over, and their lack of aesthetics and their inability to get their heads out of their own snatches mean another field has sunk under their lard-ass weight.

I happened to catch an episode of "All in the Family" from one of the later seasons after Mike and Gloria left.\ \ I was shocked to see that this all-time classic, ground-breaking series sunk to one of the sad sitcom cliches of having one of the stars (Jean Stapleton) portray another character.\ \ In this episode, she portrayed a German lady (with a ridiculous exaggerated accent) all with a stupid double shot from the back when she appeared as Edith in the same scene. Of course there was a big split-screen scene when Edith and this other character-named "Judith" (Oh, Lord!) appeared face-to-face including audience applause at the magic and wonder of it all.\ \ I just never knew this show sunk to this level. I hope I don''t find out there was an episode where they all did a variety show or where there was a dream sequence!!

Have you ever met one that you would even want to date? How was it? To be honest, most are not even that attractive.
I'm thinking of starting a game night with friends. I'm sort of over watching comedy specials and comedians and think this might be a fun night in and a great way to cut some expenses, save a little $$$. Seems like everyone I know could use a way to save some money and still have a little fun, something a little different from another night out. Something a bit more mature than monopoly or life. Thanks.

[quote]Venture with Nick back to carnal caveman days. 23 hours ago Nick Jonas wants to get you naked in the woods… but not in a scary murdery way, I swear. On his new song, “Wilderness,” Nick strips away distractions to deal with basic human desire — and that is, uh, reproduction? The song, which dropped early Tuesday morning (October 21), takes listeners back to caveman days — sexual caveman days. That said, it’s not hard to imagine Nick grabbing his loin-clothed crotch (just sayin’). “Before the fire/ We discovered desire/ There’s no use so you can just let me hear you breathing/ Or I’ll overheat it,” Jonas croons on the track, a Bruno-esque sex jam off his upcoming self-titled album, out November 10. With “Wilderness,” we get a staccato piano beat, falsetto goodness and whole lot of hollering from men in the background — perhaps they’re hungry for gazelle? Nick continues to distance himself from his Jonas Brother past. “Wilderness” follows solo jams “Jealous,” “Chains” and “Numb,” featuring Angel Haze.
The Amazon Princess' ardent fans have demanded it for years, and it's finally happening: Wonder Woman will get her own movie in 2017, Warner Bros. Pictures announced on Wednesday. The movie will star Gal Gadot in the title role. And she won't be alone. Rumors that Jason Momoa was going to play Aquaman in his own movie were confirmed as well, with that film slated for 2018, along with "The Flash" starring Ezra Miller ("The Perks of Being a Wallflower"). All these movies will follow 2016's highly anticipated "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" (with Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Gadot). 2017 will see "Justice League Part One," which will gather all the DC Comics heroes, similar to "Marvel's the Avengers" in 2012. A second part is slated for 2019, and Zack Snyder, the director "Batman v. Superman" will helm both films. "Shazam," the story of a child who turns into a superhero when he utters the fateful word, will bow in 2019. 2020's "Cyborg" will star Ray Fisher, who will also be seen in "Batman v. Superman." Those who were disappointed by Ryan Reynolds' take on "Green Lantern" will see a reboot come 2020. Warner Bros., which is owned by Time Warner, as is CNN, also announced more "Lego Movies:" one about "Lego Batman" (with Will Arnett voicing the caped crusader) in 2017, and "Lego Movie 2" the next year. Potterheads have much to look forward to as well. J.K. Rowling's screenwriting debut will take the form of a trilogy of "Fantastic Beasts" movies, in 2016, 2018 and 2020. Fans of superheroes, wizards and toy blocks may need to start saving up now for all those movie tickets.

Let's keep it 100, most guys are going to keep you at arms length once they figure out your sexuality. Now I'm not super feminine, but after talking to me, you can kinda feel me out and get the idea that I'm gay. I really felt like I was developing a friendship with this guy in Bio lab, but lately, I'm noticing that he keeps his distance. For instance, I'll try and engage him and ask him about the lecture and he responds with short sentences. When I first met him, he was so chit-chatty, but now I'm lucky if he gives me a head nod. I have a theory that once he added me on Facebook, he saw the "interested in men" on my page, so it probably freaked him out. I just wish guys could let their guard down around gay dudes, because most of us are chill and have good intentions, but society tells guys my age to avoid the "gay". I hate having to settle being friends with just females. Most chicks think that because you're gay, you wanna hear about all their "girly" problems, but that shit is boring to me. Before I came out, I used to have a gang of straight guy friends, but now that I'm out, it's weird seeing how my social circle was forced to change.
I fill out application after application.\ \ They supposedly want to give dogs a new home, right?

And then I never hear back from them. \ \ "The dog''s foster family decided to keep it."\ \ "Yes we have other dogs - you''re approved - just pick one" And then I do and I never hear back from them. \ \ I follow up with a call or an email and still get no response.\ \ Whats with these nutcases? Do they get off on this or what?\ \ I mean - I''ve been approved, but they won''t give me a fucking dog?

I have to say... the premiere was a bit underwhelming. It seemed awfully "forced" and "contrived". I hope it's just the nature of being a pilot that has to set up so much, and that future episodes are better. I'm still in.

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.

"Shonda Rhimes doesn't have time for your closed-minded ways of thinking. The Scandal and Grey's Anatomy creator shot down a Twitter user who complained about gay scenes on her shows, including those on the new hit How to Get Away With Murder. Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder both feature gay male characters in the regular cast. The tweet in question: "The gay scenes in Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder are too much. There is no point and they add nothing to the plot. Rhimes was having none of that business and responded with a series of tweets for all the world to see. "There are no GAY scenes. There are scenes with people in them. If you are suddenly discovering that Shondaland shows have scenes involving people who are gay, you are LATE TO THE PARTY. If u use the phrase "gay scenes", u are not only LATE to the party but also NOT INVITED to the party. Bye Felicia. #oneLOVE."............
The GOP has said over and over that it will not support equality for gays. It was against gays in the military. It's against gay marriage. When asked about what he would do for gays if he were President, he told the person to vote for Obama. Bush famously claimed that more gays voted for him than for Kerry, which may be true. Why do these gays vote against their own interests?
I was walking from the bus stop to my office the other day, and as I passed a poster of a smiling man with a dog in his lap advertising some product, it suddenly occurred to me that the job of the man in the poster was simply to sit and have his picture taken. \ \ When I go to my office every day, I have a pile of real work to do. But the guy in the poster only has to sit (and smile) so someone else can take his picture. What kind of career is that!\ \ I know someone is going to say, "Oh, it''s not that easy." But how hard could it be? As hard as construction work? As stressful as managing a corporation with thousands of employees? As exhausting as being a short order cook in a restaurant?\ \ No point.

OCT 18, 2014 Tom Daley confirmed himself to be a huge Zac Efron fan in a new interview with Attitude, adding that he thinks Zac has “a great body.” Attention creators of Tumblr fan fiction: this is your queue! Tom’s confession is out now in the November issue of Attitude, the cover of which he graces as the magazine’s “Man of the Year.” At an awards ceremony celebrating the accolade last weekend, he thanked his boyfriend Dustin Lance Black for being supportive. But back to the important details about Tom Daley’s body crush on Zac Efron: “I don’t normally watch many films, so I’m terrible with actors’ names,” says Daley, when asked who his favourite actor is. “But I think it would have to be Zac Efron in Bad Neighbours.” When asked which male celebrity has the perfect body, Daley replies: “I think Zac Efron has a great body…I see a pattern emerging…[laughs].”
I''m lesbian, 43, in good shape, financially solvent, educated and attractive. I''m very sexual and sometimes would just like to be able to hook up like gay guys do for some good, old fashioned sex. Are there any mature, attractive, adventurous, interesting women out there who would love to be wined, dined, entertained and then shagged senseless? I''m nice, drama-free, kind, thoughtful, a great cook and love fine wine and good conversation, but let''s face it, I really need some nice tits to play with and a wet, willing pussy to indulge in. Any takers? Would you?

In their pursuit of a fugitive ex-cop, at least seven officers opened fire on what turned out to be a mother and daughter delivering newspapers on a quiet residential street, law enforcement sources told The Times. It was "a tragic misinterpretation" by officers working under "incredible tension," LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said Friday in an interview with The Times. Margie Carranza, 47, and her mother, Emma Hernandez, 71, were the victims.[...] around 5 a.m. Thursday in Torrance, police from nearby El Segundo saw a pickup truck exit a freeway and head in the general direction of the Redbeam Avenue residence of a high-ranking Los Angeles police official, which was being guarded by a group of LAPD officers. A radio call indicated that the truck matched the description of Dorner's gray Nissan Titan. As the vehicle approached the house, officers opened fire, unloading a barrage of bullets into the back of the truck. When the shooting stopped, they quickly realized their mistake. The truck was not a Nissan Titan, but a Toyota Tacoma. The color wasn't gray, but aqua blue. And it wasn't Dorner inside the truck, but Carranza and her mother delivering copies of the Los Angeles Times.[...] "How do you mistake two Hispanic women, one who is 71, for a large, black male?" said Richard Goo, 62, who counted five bullet holes in the entryway to his house. Glen T. Jonas, the attorney representing the women, said the police officers gave "no commands, no instructions and no opportunity to surrender" before opening fire. He described a terrifying encounter in which the pair were in the early part of their delivery route through several South Bay communities. Hernandez was in the back seat handing papers to her daughter, who was driving. Carranza would briefly slow the truck to throw papers on driveways and front walks. As bullets tore through the cabin, the two women "covered their faces and huddled down," Jonas said. "They felt like it was going on forever." Hernandez was shot twice in her back and is expected to recover. Her daughter escaped with only minor wounds from broken glass.

It used to be you'd hear about the occasional child with leukemia and then maybe some 60+ year olds. It was very rare to hear about 20-40 year olds who were suffering from it. So rare that you'd read it in the newspapers. Now I know 17 people (closely) that have been diagnosed at very young ages with cancer, including my own brother. My nextdoor neighbor is a nearly retired hospice nurse and she swears it is from cellphones. Do you sense an uptick in cancer case numbers in the fairly young?

I'm a middle aged, progressive homo who has always volunteered (health projects, prison education) and am becoming increasingly intolerant of people who espouse versions of identity politics. No need to get into examples. I just can't believe the way in which progressive politics has been hijacked in this way. Whatever happened to the universal? In answer to my question, I usually smack back, but this just seems to generate more ammunition for people whose only purpose in life, seemingly, is the cultivation and assertion of their identities. But perhaps I should just ignore, and stop reading The Guardian.

This past weekend I hit a deer (ugh!) and it did approximately $7,800 worth of damage to my car. The car, at best is worth $8-10 so its likely the insurance will declare it a total loss. I am literally 3 months away from paying it off so I really don't want to buy it new one, plus I loathe car shopping. If the insurance considers the car a total loss can I take that $$ (plus some of my own) to fix the car? Would my insurance even cover it anymore at that point? There is some internal damage, but most of it is body work. Thank you in advance for any suggestions!

Derek Hough may be one of Hollywood's hottest dancers, but life wasn't always so sweet. "On one occasion, they would tie my ankles up with a very rough rope, hang me from a tree upside down and spit on me and call me names and even held a gun to my head," Hough remembered last night at GLSEN's Respect Awards, where he was honored by the LGBT student advocacy group with the Inspiration Award. "I didn't tell anybody — my parents, teachers, my friends, my sisters," Hough said. "It became my safe place, the place where I could grow and flourish and where I could find those answers," he said.
Has anyone seen the commercials for this new reality series? I was surprised that it's a reality series when I Googled it because the commercial's production values look like it's for a standard half hour sitcom. It's supposed to be about a self-made millionaire, his wife and five kids. But, is this man not screamingly gay? And the son who comes to the door in the commercial pings to high heaven.

Biden's son joins Navy Reserve Associated Press - 4 mins ago WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden will have another military son to worry about as he helps chart America's course around the world. Youngest son Hunter is joining the Navy. The attorney and former lobbyist applied for a commission into the Navy Reserve as a public affairs officer and was selected, the Navy said Friday. Because Hunter Biden is 42, he needed a special waiver to be accepted, but that is not uncommon. He is one of seven candidates recommended for a direct commission for public affairs. The direct commission process allows individuals to apply and become a reservist if they have particular skills or professional expertise. A board of senior Navy officers interviewed the candidates and made the recommendations. Biden's oldest son Beau is Delaware's attorney general and an Army National Guard member who served a yearlong deployment in Iraq. According to the Navy, Hunter Biden must serve three years of selected reserve status, during which he is available for active duty and must be prepared to deploy anywhere in the world. He then will be in the so-called Ready Reserve for eight years, which means he can be called back to duty under certain circumstances. He will spend the next few months completing medical screenings and the security clearance process and would then be commissioned as an ensign. He will participate in a two-week training course in Rhode Island during the next year, and then do a military public affairs training course sometime in the next two years. Joe Biden also has a daughter, Ashley.

The Django Unchained actress who claimed racial profiling by police last month has been charged with lewd conduct, according to TMZ, which broke the story initially. Daniele Watts and her boyfriend Brian James Lucas were each reportedly charged with lewd conduct, a misdemeanor conduct charge that could result in six months in county jail and a $1,000 fine. The couple were stopped after eyewitnesses called the Los Angeles Police Department complaining of a couple having sex in public during daylight. They claimed they were apprehended because Watts is black and Lucas is white, garnering national news attention until a recording of the incident was leaked to TMZ. The City Attorney's office could not immediately be reached for comment.

10/18/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF Stephen Collins -- a self-proclaimed child molester -- will NOT be prosecuted for either molesting or exposing himself to the 3 victims ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ. TMZ posted audio of Collins confessing to wife Faye Grant that he molested and/or exposed himself to 3 girls ... ages 11 - 13. And, as we reported ... the NYPD and the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. have open investigations. The LAPD is also looking into the case they closed 2 years ago. But law enforcement sources in all 3 police departments tell TMZ ... the cases will go nowhere. All 3 cases are decades old, and our sources say prosecution would be barred by the statute of limitations. The NYPD case is the one with the best argument that the statute hasn't run ... as we reported the victim came forward in 2012 and spoke with NY detectives. But that case involves an incident in the 70s and we're told law enforcement has all but given up on a viable case. Grant has alleged Collins molested a child while he was shooting "7th Heaven" -- sometime between 1996 and 2007 -- but we're told no such victim has come forward. Although it looks like Collins will not be prosecuted -- assuming no one else comes forward -- he will still have to deal with the molestation issue in court. His divorce trial is next month, and Grant plans to raise the issue because she wants her portion of the assets protected in case one of the victims files suit. And he plans to raise the issue because he claims she used the audio to extort him.
The Department of Homeland Security has announced that all passengers arriving from Ebola-affected countries in West Africa must go by way of a handful of U.S. airports as part of measures to control the spread of Ebola. "Today, I am announcing that all passengers arriving in the United States whose travel originates in Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea will be required to fly into one of the five airports that have the enhanced screening and additional resources in place," Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said in a statement. Starting on Wednesday, those passengers will then be subject to "secondary screening and added protocols, including having their temperature taken, before they can be admitted into the United States," the statement said. The airports are: New York's JFK; Newark, N.J.; Washington, D.C.'s Dulles; Atlanta; and Chicago O'Hare. "We are working closely with the airlines to implement these restrictions with minimal travel disruption," Johnson said on Tuesday. "If not already handled by the airlines, the few impacted travelers should contact the airlines for rebooking, as needed." Meanwhile, a nurse in Madrid who contracted the Ebola virus while treating a Catholic missionary returning from West Africa is free of the virus, a second blood test has confirmed, according to Spanish health officials. Teresa Romero, 44, who was diagnosed with Ebola two weeks ago, became the first person diagnosed outside West Africa during the current Ebola outbreak, the largest since the virus was discovered in 1976. "We consider her cured of the Ebola virus by World Health Organization criteria," said Jose Ramon Arribas, doctor at the Carlos III Hospital in Madrid where the nurse is being treated, according to Reuters. The mother of Amber Vinson, a U.S. nurse who became infected while treating Thomas Eric Duncan, the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the United States, says her daughter is doing well. Deborah Berry tells ABC's Good Morning America that the family is "very confident" that Vinson is receiving good care at Emory [hospital in Atlanta] and is relieved that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued stricter safety protocols for health care workers treating Ebola after Vinson and another nurse, Nina Pham, became infected. Another Ebola patient evacuated from West Africa who was being treated at Emory has been released after being confirmed as free of the virus, hospital officials say. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was transported to the hospital in Atlanta on Sept. 9.

She's now a ghost and there's a turtle that the couple carved their names into that grows into a giant monster. Anyone know either or both of these movies?

Ryan Idol, the great former gay porn star, a man so classy he is currently serving time for using part of a toilet as a deadly weapon in an attempted murder, was the first to popularize the term "bitch tits" in the gay world for steroid induced gynaecomastia (a condition he suffered from). Let's post pictures here of men with "bitch tits." To start things off, a bow towards the master himself (NSFW):

Anyone remember this show? I'm watching episode 2, on the Green Bay Chopper right now, I love the way Kathy Baker and Tom Skerritt interact. Kathy's got great comedic timing. IMDB says Kathy hasn't been working in a decade. I don't understand that. Their boys are so cute. The oldest, Justin Shenkarow, is on our team, I think. Costas Mandylor was such a hunk, but a terrible actor. He's been in a couple "Saw" movies since then, not much else. I guess Fyvush Finkel was a one trick pony, but lots of fun. It seemed so edgy, but things are only edgy once.

Animated GIFs have been around since the early 90s, and for two decades everyone pronounced it "ghif" with a hard G. Everyone except the creators at CompuServe, who for some reason pronounced it "jif," even though that makes absolutely no sense. GIF stands for "graphics interchange format." So unless you also pronounce graphics as "jraphics," it makes sense to say "ghif." And most of the world agrees. Mashable surveyed 30k people around the world and found that 70% of people pronounce it "ghif." The survey asked how people pronounce a few other tech terms, as well. 82% of people pronounce meme as "meem," but people in the computer industry are more likely to pronounce it "mee-mee." 66% of people pronounce data with a long "a" like "dayta" as opposed to "dat-ah." And there are actually people in the world that pronounce wi-fi as "wee-fee." Five percent of responders owned up to that. Now go nuts posting your favorite GIFs in the comments.
Let's revive this timeless thread, in which we post personal anecdotes outlining celebrity bitchery. According to Tom Shales' SNL book, Chevy Chase is the prickiest prick to have ever pricked.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) says he’s "not qualified" to debate the science of climate change, but insists that President Obama should "absolutely consider" a ban on U.S. travel to West African countries experiencing Ebola outbreaks. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says he’s “not a scientist” when it comes to climate change, but also says it would be "a good idea to discontinue flights" from Ebola-affected countries. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal — who studied science in college — says he’ll "leave it to the scientists" to talk about climate change, but says it’s "common sense" to institute a flight ban.
For me--the comedy films. Summer Rental, Revenge of the Nerds, Weekend at Bernie's. Any time I think about the 1980's, I think about the movies. The decade may have been shit for a lot of reasons, but the films were awesome.
They seem to be easy to distinguish. I think that the ones with dementia are those that give us the impression they at one time had rational thoughts (whether those thoughts were misguided or not.) The quintessential celebrity lunatic is Michelle Bachman. And it's obvious that George Will and Barbara Walters are suffering from dementia. I think that in the last months of her life, Joan Rivers seemed to be showing dementia. So who is which? Which celebrities have lost their minds and which celebrities are losing brain function? (Challenge: Donald Trump. Demented or crazy? Personally, I think he has always been a little crazy, but is suffering from dementia.)

The Ebola virus and government handling of it is reminding people of the ignorance and misinformation the White House had in the age of AIDS.

It's a CHILDREN'S holiday, okay? And a stupid one at that. But at least they do it to get candy. What do adults get out of Halloween? Nothing. They dress up because they hate their ordinary lives and don't have the balls to break out of them in any way, shape, or form unless it's sanctioned. If you see an adult in a Halloween costume, you can be sure it hates its life and wishes it was still a child... yet they won't DARE to buck the system on a normal day. They put on a stupid costume and brag all the rest of the year about it as if they were creative and rebellious, when all they have ever been is SAD.

Downton Abbey star Rob James-Collier has spoken about the show’s current ‘gay cure’ storyline. In recent episodes, fans of the ITV period drama have seen James Collier’s character, Thomas Barrow, begin a painful process to try and change his sexuality. Gay sex remained illegal in Britain in the 1920s, with men facing potential prison sentences if they were caught engaging in homosexual acts. Speaking about Barrow’s struggles, James-Collier said: “He wants to be able to love, so he embarks on quite a dark and serious journey rooted in his sexuality to try and change how he is. “I really wanted to get down to why Thomas was how he is. For me, I made the choice it was his sexuality. You wake up every morning and your religion is telling you you’re condemned. I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of men like Thomas did do this, because what was the alternative? There wasn’t one.” Meanwhile, the show’s creator Julian Fellowes, said that Barrow’s “fortitude” will “take him through a period of incredible physical discomfort”. “The result he seeks is impossible – it’s not to be obtained by any medical treatment, it was just quackery,” he added.

Any Oaklanders (or others familiar with the town) care to comment? Oakland—like a swinging party, like an emergency—is happening. Oakland is always happening. From the moment of its founding, in the 1850s, by a nefarious confederation of squatters, opportunists, filibusterers, graft artists, boosters, visionary thieves, and confidence men, Bump City has been happening. And yet, in all that time, Oakland has never quite happened. Or rather, Oakland never has happened. Oakland has never had its day. It has never gone soft, grown fat, rested on its laurels.* It has never entirely gotten its act together, remembered to set its alarm clock, made it through to payday, waited for its cake to cool completely. There is a there there (Oakland coolly says “Bite me” to Gertrude Stein); but Oakland’s not there yet. Getting there, though. Oakland is—always, forever—getting there. Oakland is like America in that way. Oakland is like America in a lot of ways—violent and peace-loving, burdened by a calamitous racial history, factious and muddled, friendly and casual, rich in local genius and in natural beauty, poorly governed, sweet-natured, cold-eyed, out to lunch, out for blood, out for a good time. And, above all, promising. Every day, Oakland makes and breaks the American promise, a promise so central to the idea of America that we carry it around everywhere we go, in our wallets, jingling in our pockets. I mean, of course, E pluribus unum: out of all the scattered sparks, one shining light. It’s a utopian promise, and like all utopian promises, liable to breakage. But even if that promise can never truly be redeemed, it can be—it must be—endlessly renewed. And it’s the work that we put in, day after day, toward renewing the promise, not the promise’s fulfillment, that really matters. Tanya Holland knows that. Every day, starting at 5:30 AM, she renews Oakland’s promise at Brown Sugar Kitchen, a little hip-pocket utopia on a triangular lot between an auto-salvage yard and the free-range graffiti farms of the city’s wild west end. Of all the many good restaurants, greasy-spoon to top-drawer, that make up a substantial share of the cultural wealth of Oakland, Tanya’s Brown Sugar Kitchen most clearly, most faithfully, and most thrillingly embodies, one plate of chicken and waffles at a time, the ongoing, ever-renewed promise of the city she has come to love and, in a very real sense, to represent.

The "Django Unchained" actress who claimed she was harassed and hurt by cops after making out with her boyfriend was actually having sex in her car according to witnesses ... then went on a rant with cops accusing them of racism and not knowing who she was ... according to police audio obtained by TMZ. Daniele Watts had just left CBS studios in the San Fernando Valley around 2 PM Thursday. She says she was making out with her BF, but we've learned witnesses from the nearby Directors Guild office building told cops they were watching her and her BF have full-on sex in the passenger seat WITH THE DOOR OPEN! The eyewitnesses said the guy was sitting in the seat, she was straddling him and it was for everyone to see. One eyewitness told cops they cleaned themselves up afterward with a tissue. TMZ obtained police audio of the incident. Watts instantly plays the race card when Sgt. Jim Parker asked for her ID. She quickly moves from the race card to the fame card -- then storms off, refusing to show her ID. She was apprehended by another cop a short distance away and brought back -- and things got NUCLEAR! Some of her choice comments: - "I think I'd like to identify you ... to my publicist." Who's the Bad Guy? Actress Cops - "I serve freedom and love. You guys serve detainment. That's cool." - "I hope when you're f***ing your spouses you really feel alive." We're told she plans to file a complaint with the LAPD and has hired a lawyer.

Live fast, die young” is usually associated with rappers and rock stars, but it may describe the lives of the precociously successful in diverse fields: Politicians, actors, and scholars who reach career peaks early in their lives may be at risk for premature death. In 2001, Stewart McCann, a professor of psychology at the University College of Cape Breton in Australia, devised what he calls the “precocity-longevity hypothesis”: That people who reach career peaks at a younger age tend to have shorter lives. The idea first occurred to McCann when he was researching American presidents and noticed a surprising pattern: The men who became president earlier seemed to die earlier, too. He decided to look into this trend more systematically, and designed a series of studies looking at the relationship between age at death and age at peak success in different fields. McCann looked at a total of 1,026 people, comprising 23 samples. The first study focused on national political leaders, for example, American and French presidents, and Canadian, British, New Zealand, and Australian prime ministers, who died of natural causes; Roman Catholic popes; male British monarchs; associate justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, etc... He compared the age at which they first achieved their leadership position to their age at death, making some attempts to control for selection biases. (For example: People entering the samples in different decades and even centuries have drastically different life expectancies.)1 McCann found that his precocity-longevity hypothesis was supported for every sample except the Australian prime ministers. For the 32 American presidents included in this study, for instance, the younger ones (those who were inaugurated before the median age of 55.7) died, on average, 7.2 years before those who were inaugurated when they were older (i.e., after the median). In the French sample, the difference was 9.2 years; for popes, it was 10.2. In his second study, McCann extended his theory to exceptional creative achievement—looking at winners of Nobel prizes in all six categories and winners of Oscars for acting. His theory was again borne out, most dramatically for Peace Prize recipients: Those who won after the median age could tack on an extra 13.5 years to their lifetimes. In a third study, he looked at all the participants at a single event attended only by distinguished men: The signing of the Declaration of Independence. Of the 56 signers, the average age was 44.8; the average age at death was 66.4, but those who were above the median on July 4, 1776, lived an average of 7.7 years longer than those who were below it. This study wasn’t designed to explain the possible link between early achievement and premature death, but McCann has a couple ideas. He thinks the most likely culprit is stress: “It is conceivable that stresses resulting from serving in a high-level capacity at an early age may promote premature declines that culminate in earlier death,” he writes. Or it may be that the same factors driving success also contribute to early decline: People who become successful early in life tend to have competitive, achievement-oriented “Type A” personalities (an actual psychological “Type,” apparently)—great for getting ahead, but not as great for health. Another theory suggests that people who achieve success at a young age, who’ve had less time to develop a secure sense of identity, may be more likely to resort to self-destructive behaviors to cope with fame and media attention. This was put forward by Ernest Abel and Michael Kruger, in a paper that found that the precocity-longevity hypothesis also applies to early twentieth-century Major League Baseball players—and might be more plausible for baseball players and actors than, say, Nobel prize-winning physicists or economists. Another possibility is that people who accomplish their life-long goal early have less motivation to carry on; having a sense of purpose has been linked to longevity. Good news for slackers and late-bloomers everywhere.

It seemed to be the courageous sting which did what police around the world would not dare to do: the creation of a computer-generated 10-year-old girl to ensnare men who sought out sexual images of children. But there are serious doubts about whether the evidence gathered from a fake profile set up by a charity in the Netherlands called Terre Des Hommes would be admissible in British courts. Child protection experts have also told the Independent that using entrapment to capture online child sex offenders is ineffective and could actually make the targets more dangerous as well as damage existing investigations. A team of four researchers from Terre Des Hommes spent 10 weeks of 2013 posing in chat rooms as young girls from the Philippines. They even made computer generated images of a fake profile, nicknamed Sweetie, for webcam chats. Police forces around the world were sent details of 1,000 men who had contacted Sweetie and were invited to investigate. Many of the men requested that she perform sex acts in front of a webcam for cash. Today, Sweetie claimed her first scalp. An Australian man called Scott Robert Hansen, who is a registered sex offender, pleaded guilty to three charges in Brisbane District Court. He admitted to sending obscene pictures of himself to Sweetie, as well as having images of child sexual abuse on his computer and failing to comply with a sex offenders order. He was sentenced to two years in prison. In a week when the head of the National Crime Agency was pilloried for admitting that police in Britain will only ever put away a fraction of the 50,000 possible child sex offenders that cross its path, news of the sting’s first scalp should have been encouraging. But as doubts are raised about the research method's effectiveness in Britain, the Sweetie sting has only raised more questions about the best way to deal with people who view indecent images of children online. Donald Findlater, director of research and development for the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, a charity which works to prevent child sexual abuse, said: “The risk of online vigilantes or the honey trap idea is that it’s not run by the police, and there’s an enormous capacity to make people more dangerous. If you suggest to people that children are sexually available there’s a risk you make them more sexually dangerous online.” The NCA was sent details of 110 British men who had been caught in the Sweetie sting, but many would be very difficult to prosecute in British courts because the UK has strong laws against accepting evidence gained by entrapment. The NCA also says a substantial amount of work needs to be done to even identify the 110 men it has been notified about. Keith Bristow, director general of the NCA, came under fire earlier this week for saying that police could not investigate all 50,000 possible sex offender cases, adding: “Our responsibility is to focus on the greatest risk and tackle those people.” The Lucy Faithfull Foundation’s Findlater said: “I’m delighted that the NCA have been honest about this, rather than posture. If we know that last year, and the year before, police forces across England and Wales together arrested around 3,500 individuals [for child sexual offences], with all the resources that took to do - and then look at this 50,000 number, are we really looking at making arrests of all these? And where should the money come from? Should we take it from anti-terrorism?” Findlater added: “Some of these 50,000 people would have been 16-year-olds looking at 15-year-old girls. When we give the label "online paedophile" we’re conjuring up a particular public image of what we’re thinking about, yet some will be young people themselves and exploring their sexuality online. “Do we really think the law is the only way? I want the police to catch the guy speeding doing 90, I don’t want the police to catch the guy doing 75. The police need to focus their energies on the most dangerous cases.”

Investigators from several jurisdictions are looking into the deaths of at least seven women whose bodies were discovered over the weekend in or near Gary, Ind. Six bodies were found in abandoned houses in Gary, an industrial city about 30 miles south of Chicago, and one was discovered at a motel in nearby Hammond, Ind., said Dan Sorbello, an investigator in the Lake County Coroner's Office. "They were all in decomposed states and had been dead for some time," Sorbello said. Lake County spans much of northern Indiana. Sorbello said law enforcement officials from several local jurisdictions were looking into the discovery of the bodies, noting that it's still an ongoing investigation. Requests for comment from the Gary and Hammond police departments were not immediately returned Monday. In a message on Facebook, Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. said officers from his town arrested a man who is an "admitted serial killer." "The suspect Hammond arrested for the Motel 6 murder is an admitted serial killer. The suspect gave up the location of a body in Gary that was confirmed found where he said it would be," wrote Hammond. "He also admitted to a couple of homicides in Hammond back in '94 or '95. The suspect is a convicted sexual offender as well." Sorbello on Monday could not share details about the women or say whether any family members of the victims have been notified.
Rene Levesque, Quebec Premier, 1979: "The democratic tradition is very deeply rooted in the United States. The excesses of the war in Vietnam, Watergate, the CIA were extreme enough to make the United States take a necessary step back from their role as 'the world's policeman.' I hope I am not making predictions through rose-colored glasses by saying that it seems to me the United States is abandoning over-rigid, and sometimes dangerous, policies. Today, it seems to be moving towards a politics of consensus..." Ooops.

Last night at his late night show at the Trocadero, comedian Hannibal Buress did an extended bit about Philadelphia native Bill Cosby, calling him a rapist. Cosby has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting multiple women, including Barbara Bowman in Philadelphia magazine. He has not, however, been publicly accused of rape. The above recording starts about 15-20 seconds into it. “It’s even worse because Bill Cosby has the fuckin’ smuggest old black man persona that I hate,” Buress said. “He gets on TV, ‘Pull your pants up black people, I was on TV in the 80s! I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom!’ Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches.”

The prominent Republican turned himself in to Montgomery, Alabama, authorities after being indicted on 23 felony counts, including the misuse of his public office for personal gain. Hubbard, whose book “Storming the Statehouse” details the 2010 Republican takeover of the state’s legislature, which had been led by Democrats for 136 years, was indicted as part of an ongoing investigation in Alabama.

Men obsessed with building muscles are significantly more likely to objectify women, be hostile toward women, and have sexist attitudes, new research finds. This link may come from their own negative body image, the scientists added. "We have previously found that men who hold stronger oppressive beliefs are more likely to think that thinner women are attractive," study researcher Viren Swarmi, of the University of Westminster in the United Kingdom, told LiveScience in an email. This sexism and objectification by men can lead to a more negative body image for women, can hinder women in the workplace and can even cause women to perform worse on cognitive tests.

For Lessin, the horror of grinding out his daytime hours in San Francisco includes such indignities stepping outside an office to buy things: While I worked at Facebook, I had one big tax on time—a roughly 45 minute commute from San Francisco to Menlo Park every day. What I didn't appreciate is the time I saved moving between activities. At Facebook, my meetings, the gym and food were all within a one or two minute walk. Now, my gym is a few minutes ride away from where I am working. Food requires leaving a building. These little bits of friction add up quickly.

Apparently, Lewinsky has opted out of showing her mentions.

The Guardian reports that London Transport chiefs are investigating incident where driver reportedly shouted: ‘It’s disgusting. Get off the bus’ at kissing couple Transport chiefs have launched an investigation after a gay couple were reportedly thrown off a bus for kissing. Jack James, 23, said he and his partner were ordered off a number 89 bus near Blackheath in south-east London by the driver, who subjected them to a volley of abuse. James, an event co-ordinator from Greenwich, told the Evening Standard: “We were chatting away when my partner gave me a peck on the lips. “The bus driver shouted: ‘Oi, you two, don’t do that on my fucking bus or you can get off, I don’t want to watch that’.” James said that, initially, the couple thought the driver could not be speaking to them. He added: “When the bus stopped at our stop I walked up to the driver and politely asked the driver if he was talking to us. His reply was: ‘Yes, it’s my bus, it is my rules, and I don’t want to watch that. It’s disgusting. Get off the bus.’ “Once we got off the bus we were fuming and I was shaking. The bus stopped again and he shouted and told us we were not real men and we should fuck off.” The alleged incident happened on 8 August at around 10.30pm. Ken Davidson, Transport for London’s head of bus operations, said: “All customers have the right to use our services without fear of being abused and offensive behaviour is completely unacceptable. “We would like to reassure Mr James that this matter is being taken very seriously and that a thorough investigation is being conducted by [bus company] Go-Ahead.”
Now there's an odd couple if ever there was one.
A poster in another thread mentioned he had started drinking again because of boredom. That's always been my problem. I can stop drinking, and within a few days start to feel really good physically because of sleeping better, less hangover headaches, etc. After a couple of months, I start to feel this build up of tension or whatever. I just get incredibly bored with feeling the same way every day, never feeling immensely happy or immensely sad or whatever. I just feel kind of numb. So, I'll give in an go on a bender just to feel that carefree, joyous feeling you sometimes briefly get when you're drunk, which - since I'm an alcoholic - leads into drinking every night again. I'm 50, and at a point in my life where I know that if I want to live another 25-30 years, I've got to stop drinking. For those of you who have stopped successfully, how do you get over the hump here?
Robert Pattison has recently claimed he''s allergic to vagina, but can anyone remember back in 2005/2006 when this hot stud (JARED LETO) said he was "as Gay as a Goose"?? \ I''m surprised no one picked up on that and everyone on DL still thinks he''s straight?? Are we blind or what?
You just know that skinny white bitch wants a piece of that.
Is he as big a prick as he seems?
