Do any of you know you have this? It's a fear of small holes in clusters, and it apparently affects something like 20% of the population. But they weren't aware of it until just recently, and they're not sure yet what causes it. Supposedly the unofficial test for it is if looking at a picture of a lotus seed pod (pictured) fills you with revulsion, you'd got it.

Tom Daley talks about his celebrity male crushes, ideal job after diving, and wanting a family in the latest issue of ‘Attitude‘ magazine
A friend of mine just got back from the Lake Como region, where she said her Italian friends all swear up and down that not only does everyone in the area know that George Clooney is gay (despite the engagement), but that he's had an affair for years with some sort of male psychiatrist or psychologist who practices in Florence. Have any of you heard about this before?
Has all the recent news made you nervous about your travel plans.
He is friends with Jeff because Jeff is Harry's agent, he is supposed to introduce him to a lot of important people in LA. Harry wants to be known as a songwriter, he wants to become 'friends' with people who can help him become famous as an individual when the time is there. You can keep calling Jeff his boyfriend, but that doesn't make it the truth. The only truth is that Harry is a smart ass who knows exactly how to charm the right people into doing a lot for him. Even if those people have their own agenda as well. Harry has talked his way right into the Azoff family. What more does he need? Well, maybe a secret girl- or boyfriend who loves him for who he is, and not for how famous he is. Someone who doesn't care about him being in LA all the time. So this person must have the possibility to see him, even though he is always staying at different places around the world. Someone whom he wants to stay faithful to, even though he knows that he could sleep with a lot of beautiful people. But why would a guy his age want to do that? Does that mean that his love interest is famous as well, and that he/she can pull the same card? Open your eyes, there is only one person who would fit in his life right now. He has never made a secret of his feelings.
Do you ever get the feeling they are silently evaluating you when you are around them? Perhaps keeping a secret file on you?
The word, "bromance" has even crept in to the coverage. I have to say that photographs of the two of them together tend to emphasize what an ugly fuck Robert Pattinson is.
I keep it groomed nice and short but I'm thinking about going all the way. What do you guys think? (I'm super well built and have a big one, if it makes a difference.)
Is he the new Cody Cummings ?
He's not married. He states on the show that he goes to movies alone...he dresses immaculately. Any sightings around NYC?
This time going after Adult Swim. The late night programming on the Cartoon Network, known as Adult Swim, plans to air the non-animated show "Black Jesus" portraying Jesus as a "black guy living in the hood." The show depicts him living in Compton Gardens and makes a mockery of our Lord. The foul language used in the trailer, including using the Lord's name in vain, is disgusting. In addition, there is violence, gunfire and other inappropriate gestures which completely misrepresent Jesus. This is blasphemy! "Black Jesus" is set to premiere on August 7 at 11:00 pm ET/ 10:00 pm CT, unless we intervene. Adult Swim plans to blaspheme Jesus on a weekly basis. This mockery will be similar to "South Park" and "Family Guy," but much worse since the entire program will be based on lies about Christianity. 1MM will defend our Savior because He is Holy! Adult Swim is obviously not a family network, and this program is set to air later in the evening when children should be asleep, but that is no excuse. Adult Swim has crossed the line by belittling the Christian religion with foul jokes. We need to send a loud and clear message to Adult Swim, its owner Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (a Time Warner Company), and all potential advertisers of "Black Jesus" that this kind of programming is insulting and completely unacceptable. Adult Swim is not ridiculing any other religion currently and wouldn't dream of mocking Mohammed or Muslims. If we speak with one voice now, we can keep this program from ever seeing the light of day. Christians must take a stand and not be silent. Networks like Adult Swim continue to mock Christianity, and we will not stand for it. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow this blasphemy to continue without speaking up in protest. "Black Jesus" is anoher attempt to distort the truth about Christianity. There is power in numbers! Forward this to everyone you know in a fight to keep this show off the air.
So, I'm about to jump back into the job market, and I need some suggestions. I've generally had good skin all my life, and am careful to wash it (with a gentle scrub). But I noticed a few small bumps on one side - I think these are the sebacious bumps people are talking about. I've also noticed gray specks in my goatee. What should I do, and what can I do without pouring a bunch of toxic chemicals on my skin and hair?
Canada is proposing to strip citizenship from people found guilty of some serious crimes, even someone born in Canada, but who for whatever reason also holds the citizenship of another country. The classes of crime in question are serious: treason, terrorism and specific military crimes such as spying for the enemy in time of war. But however serious the offence, when someone is born here, he or she is Canadian, for good or ill. Not anymore if Canada has anything to do with it. With more and more terror babies born in Canada, the government will now have to option to STRIP citizenship from Canadian born criminals, and ship them to the country they hold dual citizenship with!
He's gay, right? I'm watching him give the forecast on Good Day NY in my doctor's office. He's incredibly muscular, really well-groomed, and has a certain "pingy" quality about him. So what's the verdict on this gorgeous weather hottie?
When it was The Closer the cases were interesting and well written. Now it is more soap opera...but I love the home drama...any of you watching?
While Russian lawmakers have claimed the law is necessary to "protect children" from the dangers of homosexuality, the proposed law in the former Soviet nation of Kyrgyzstan law doesn't even try to couch its repression in a faux concern for youth. If passed, the Kyrgyzstani law would criminalize any positive comments about homosexuality, "sodomy, lesbianism, or any other forms of non-traditional sexual behavior," made through any form of electronic or print media to any person of any age.
He may not be conventionally hot but there's something attractive and sexy about him
Uber, Lyft, WTFEver- some day, very soon, the competition from advanced technologies will destroy every licensed Taxi service in every city in every country. Taxi medallions in NYC are worth nearly a million dollars today. In February [quote]For the first time in six years the city auctioned taxi medallions for yellow cab drivers on Wednesday and the winning bids ranged up to a record-setting $965,000. The guys that drive them make shitty money. The medallion owners make millions.
What happened to him?
Never mind your personal favorites and who you have a fondness for. Who are the actresses who have caught the imagination of audiences and the business, affected how other actresses look at their acting, and spun imitators? I say, for starters (and I don't even much like some of them): Faye Dunaway Julie Christie Julia Roberts Jodie Foster Who else? (In the period immediately before this, and into this period, too, there also were Audrey Hepburn - enormously influential - and Liz Taylor, among others.)
he's gay. Really gay. And what is up with that fucking hair?
The Ramoncoaster is in full swing. Will she pop someone's eye out with some more plasticware? Aviva is shedding "friends" faster than body parts. Given her on again/off again appearance in the opening credits, will she stick around for another season? Will her dad's dick finally fall off from some nasty STD? Heather's only significant contribution is still her hot husband. Will he and Mario finally get some drunken alone time? Will Sonja's tooth get lost (permanently) at the bottom of a champagne bottle? Will Carole finally finish her transformation into Steven Tyler? Will Lumann be un-demoted and be brought back as a full housewife? Will we get to see some of her short, thick Frenchmen? Will Kristen--oh who cares. Zzzzzzzz!
"The song she really hated was 'If I Could Turn Back Time,' but I held her leg down during a session and said, 'You have to record it!' " To which Cher responded, according to Diane Warren, "'Fuck you, bitch! You're hurting my leg! OK, I'll try it.' She gave me this look like, 'You were right.' If you look at Cher's song history, she's not always the best judge of her own material. I mean, she hated 'I Got You Babe.'"
What are your memories of the public reception?
Let´s all say it together: "You in danger, gurl!".
What Uber happened to them? Some day, very soon, the competition from advanced eugenics will destroy every yellow-skinned white man in every city in every country. These yellow-skinned white men are worth neatly a million dollars a day because they are so rare.

1. Womanly butts 2. White/Caucasian with yellow skin 3. Feminine-looking pecs (manboobs, moobs) A guy with one of those features is great. Two is better. Three is the trifecta!
It''s really more me .... but he''s really working my nerves lately. I''m feeling really judgemental, critical and sarcastic about some things he''s doing lately. Our differences are becoming more apparent and I just can''t catch a break from him. (He''s not really getting my efforts to dodge his requests to get together and I can''t avoid all of his phone calls)
Still want to see Ryan Carnes and Ryan Paevey cover each other in baby oil and play Human Slip and Slide.
From the New York Post: Anderson Cooper and his partner, Benjamin Maisani, will be relaxing in historic splendor in Connecticut’s affluent Litchfield County this summer. Multiple sources tell us the CNN anchor has splashed out on a massive, 10,127-square-foot Tudor revival stone mansion, called Rye House, for the mid-to-high seven figures. The tony estate — sold by Karen Shaw, a former Miss Connecticut who starred on “Dallas” and “The A Team,” and her husband, Marc — was built in 1908 and designed by Wilson Eyre, a founder of House & Garden magazine. The home includes an Olympic-sized swimming pool and tennis court, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Its 18 rooms feature original chestnut wood paneling, limestone fireplaces and a hand-carved marble staircase. There’s also a private four-bedroom guest wing. The 280-acre grounds boast Japanese pagoda trees, wisteria, magnolias, a walkway with stone pillars and a grape arbor. The Shaws, who bought the house 15 years ago and lovingly restored it, have been renting it out for $1,800 per night, sources said. Depending on which local you ask, Cooper bought the property in leafy Litchfield for anywhere between $5 million and $9 million. The anchor will be in good company: The Litchfield area has been home to Meryl Streep, “The Normal Heart” playwright Larry Kramer, Henry Kissinger, NBC Sports vet Dick Ebersol and Susan Saint James, and HBO documentary doyenne Sheila Nevins. Anderson and Maisani already own another unusual property, an 8,240-square-foot Greenwich Village firehouse they bought in 2010 for $4.3 million. In April, Cooper also listed one of two waterfront properties in Quogue for $2.99 million. In November, Cooper, who makes around $11 million a year at CNN, signed a contract extension through the 2016 presidential election. Despite being the son of Gloria Vanderbilt, Cooper recently told Howard Stern, “My mom’s made clear to me that there’s no trust fund.” Reps for Cooper did not return calls.

I have not seen 1 or 2 in 6-7 years and decided to watch on HBO on Demand. I always thought the 2nd film was better (and wasn't it more critically acclaimed than the 1st?) but my god the first one is by far the best. Much more plot driven than part 2, but much more exciting... James Caan is sexy has hell too! Any fans? (I love mob films)

The tragic downing of MH17 brought forth instantaneous judgments, insinuations and accusations on the part of the highest of U.S. officials. This kind of careless and reckless shooting from the hip, based on little or no solid information, has been a characteristic of American leaders at least since George Bush’s propaganda campaign that launched the Iraq War. Whatever happened to careful measured assessments of situations? Whatever happened to maturity? Whatever happened to patience? Whatever happened to withholding judgment until facts could be ascertained? And, within government, whatever happened to the capacity of executive officials to listen to intelligence reports and interpret them with intelligence, as opposed to spinning stories without basis in fact? These all have fallen. Truth has fallen. Objective truth has fallen. What has risen in its place? The creation of false realities by the U.S. officials. They have discovered that they can produce fiat reality by their own words.
Suck it, bitches! *** Disney's fairy tale update starring Angelina Jolie is the highest-grossing original film of 2014 Disney's “Maleficent” has surpassed $700 million at the global box office, the studio said Tuesday. It's Disney's 15th release ever to reach that threshold and the second of 2014, the first being the Marvel superhero sequel “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” It's also Angelina Jolie‘s highest-grossing live-action film of all time domestically ($229 million), internationally ($472 million) and globally ($700 million), as well as the highest-grossing original film of 2014 worldwide. Released domestically on May 30, Maleficent opened at No. 1 with $69.4 million and has seen strong week-to-week holds. It's till in the top ten, eight weeks into its run. Internationally, “Maleficent” has been bolstered by exceptional performances in China ($47.4 million), Mexico ($45.7 million), Russia ($37.5 million) and Brazil ($32.3 million), as well as in Japan ($32.7 million) where the film opened July 5 and has held the top spot for three weekends running. It was only a few months ago that analysts had, foolishly it would seem, branded Disney's live-action adventure 'Maleficent' as a flop, and that was even before it had been released in cinemas. However, after a strong opening and consistent debut week and beyond, the stattos were left scratching their heads at the impressive $697 million it has made to date, from a $180 million budget. But what's more impressive is that 'Maleficent' was, until Michael Bay's 'Transformers: Age of Extinction', the highest grossing non-superhero film of 2014, which was a heck of an achievement, considering it was predicted to flop upon its end of May release. Impressively, 'Maleficent' can now boast as being the highest-grossing film sold on a single movie star's name. And what does that mean? Well, it basically means films that were marketed with a single name on the poster and its advertising material. Angelina Jolie's name solely features on the posters, which qualifies the film. It has proven to be a big hit across the globe and appears to have captured the imaginations of audiences in far greater numbers than anyone ever thought it would. Top 5 Movies sold on a single star's name: 1. Angelina Jolie – Maleficent – 697.2 2. Tom Cruise – Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol – 694.7 3. Tom Hanks – Forrest Gump – 677.4 4. Bruce Willis – The Sixth Sense – 672.8 5. Will Smith - Hancock – 624.4

I have to say honestly that it seems to be a myth. If anything, they're normal size for the most part. I don't know where this stereotype came from. I've seen one study where the black penis was half an inch larger than the white, but that's not saying much. I've seen white guys with humongous cocks. I have seen black guys with really big dongs, but not as a rule. It's sad that it seems to be that black guys can only get jobs in porn if they live up to their stereotype, while white guys can be all different shapes and sizes in the genital department. For the whores out there, what's been your experience with white vs. black cock? Is one bigger? The same? It should be noted that whites come from all different backgrounds. That could be where the discrepancy comes from. On and off topic, they've found that gays have bigger penises on average than their straight counterparts. I call bullshit on that one too, but that's another topic.
I find "The Dark Knight Returns" too nasty and heavy-handed. Among my favorites are probably the whole Steve Engelhart/Marshall Rogers run from 1977 (climaxing in the great "Laughing Fish" Joker two-parter), or "The Long Halloween." But my favorite of favorites is "Batman: Year One." Frank Miller really reined in his sadistic and misogynistic streaks (with Barbara Gordon emerging as a very strong and intelligent female character), all the mythos of the storyline was resestablished in such a way that still holds 25 years later, and you just can't beat Mazzuchelli's artwork.
They always shoot in these massive houses, uh, mansions. Are these their homes? Are these porn directors rich? I mean, can they be making THAT much money from a shitty porn site? Also, if it is their house, do they have special bedrooms for the fuck scenes? I mean, do they actually let the guys fuck on their living room sofa?
Fabulous show! Just saw them in Los Angeles. Adam Lambert is perfect as a stand-in for Freddie Mercury. He twirled, strutted and preened like Cher imitating Liza Minnelli. He worked the runway like Naomi Campbell circa 1995. And he sang/screamed the sh*t out of those songs. Queen performed all of their best-known songs. There were even very nice Freddie Mercury visuals throughout the show, including Adam and Freddie duetting part of "Bohemian Rhapsody." Crowd was 60% for Queen and 40% for Adam and everyone left happy. It was the absolute opposite of the train wreck that you vicious DL b*tches predicted.
As they got older, and had to settle for anyone that would have them, as opposed to being able to pick and choose. Do you know anyone like this? What are they like--humble in their old age and growing old gracefully, or bitter and still convinced they're hot shit?
The endlessly fascinating world of HKN is not quite so fascinating anymore. Is this because there's just so much a person can take when it comes to the sorry state of affairs in the land of delusion? The name-calling is growing old and repetitive. The We Believe! mantra is becoming more and more transparent. And, well, honestly, just how many laughing gifs can a person stomach in one day? And then we have the subjects of this thread themselves. Unless one of them comes out or learns to act or finds some talent, the fact is that they will not be able to hold our attention much longer. Then again, one can always hope. Right?

Mmmm... This looks peculiar. Health survey gives government its first large-scale data on gay, bisexual population Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation. The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual. The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey. An additional 1.1 percent declined to answer, responded “I don’t know the answer” or said they were “something else.” The figures offered a slightly smaller assessment of the size of the gay, lesbian and bisexual population than other surveys, which have pegged the overall proportion at closer to 3.5 or 4 percent. In particular, the estimate for bisexuals was lower than in some other surveys. The inclusion of the sexual-orientation question in an influential survey used to guide government funding and research decisions was viewed as a major victory for the gay community, which has struggled with a dearth of data about its special health needs.
It would end in tears, right?

This is the guy who single-handedly shortened World War II. It was really sad when he was arrested because he was gay and died as a result. I think this is a really good argument for gay marriage. There are so many gay geniuses out there that could help society why no allow gay marriage?

There are rumors that Putin's presidential plane flew a similar route to that of the Malaysian airliner within 37 minutes of one another. This report has led to speculation that Washington decided to rid itself of Putin and mistook the Malaysian airliner for Putin's jet. RT reports that the two airplanes are similar in appearance.
Gravity star says paper has crossed 'far beyond just a laughable tabloid and into the arena of inciting violence' Actor George Clooney has accused the Daily Mail of concocting a false and irresponsible story about his fiancée, the human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin. He issued a strongly-worded statement to the popular American national newspaper, USA Today, following the publication of a Mail article which claimed that Alamuddin's mother, Baria, opposed their forthcoming marriage on religious grounds. It cited unnamed family members as its source. Clooney wrote: "I want to speak to the irresponsibility of Monday's Daily Mail report. I seldom respond to tabloids, unless it involves someone else and their safety or well being. The Daily Mail has printed a completely fabricated story about my fiancée's mother opposing our marriage for religious reasons. It says Amal's mother has been telling 'half of Beirut' that she's against the wedding. It says they joke about traditions in the Druze religion that end up with the death of the bride. Let me repeat that: the death of the bride." In his statement he dismantled the key details of the Mail's story: "None of the story is factually true. Amal's mother is not Druze. She has not been to Beirut since Amal and I have been dating, and she is in no way against the marriage." But that, in his view, was not "the issue." After claiming that he is used to the Mail "making up stories" about him, he argued that "this lie involves larger issues." He wrote: "The irresponsibility, in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous. We have family members all over the world, and the idea that someone would inflame any part of that world for the sole reason of selling papers should be criminal." Clooney, 53, whose father was a TV journalist and broadcaster, continued: "I'm the son of a newsman; I accept the idea that freedom of speech can be an inconvenience to my private life from time to time." But he was concerned by the fact that the Mail's false story had been picked up by hundreds of other outlets, such as Boston.com, New York Daily News, Gulf News and Emirates 24/7. Daily Mail story on George Clooney's fiancée Daily Mail story on George Clooney's fiancée He concluded his statement by writing: "The Daily Mail, more than any other organisation that calls itself news, has proved time and time again that facts make no difference in the articles they make up. "And when they put my family and my friends in harm's way, they cross far beyond just a laughable tabloid and into the arena of inciting violence. They must be so very proud." He cited three "idiotic" and false stories that the Mail has fabricated about him and Alamuddin: she was pregnant, their marriage will take place on the set of Downton Abbey and he is running for political office. These are, he claims, stories "they sit at their computers and invent." The latest Mail Online version of the story is different from the one published in the newspaper on Monday. It was amended six hours after it was originally posted on the website. But it still states that Alamuddin's mother, Baria, "is not so impressed" with Clooney and "wanted her to marry within their strict Lebanese religious sect, according to close family friends." USA Today reports that the Mail "did not respond to requests for comment."

Radio Report on WOR New York .. Can't find story on net.
ONEONTA, Alabama -A woman was caught on camera Tuesday stealing flowers from a gravesite at an Oneonta cemetery, and police said it's not the first time it has happened. Police Chief James Chapman said Carol Stevenson complained to lawmen that someone has repeatedly vandalized her late husband's grave at Oakhill Cemetery over the past year, though he's been dead 23 years. The vandals, Chapman said, have stolen real and artificial flowers from the site, and sprayed the headstone with black paint. "They started having trouble last year,'' Chapman said. He said there were at least four instances of someone stealing the artificial arrangements, and/ or digging up real flowers planted there. Twice, he said, someone has spray painted the headstone and Stevenson's daughters had to repaint the indented white lettering. Chapman said often people think flowers from gravesites are stolen when, in fact, the wind blows them away. That didn't appear to be the case here, so police suggested the family set up a hidden camera to verify their suspicions. They went out and bought a deer cam, and set it up nearby. On Tuesday, they found out for sure. A woman was photographed taking flowers from the site. "It got good footage of the woman pulling up the flowers but there was no vehicle in the images,'' Chapman said. "I think it's clear enough that she can be identified." Chapman says the family thought they might know who was behind the vandalism, but when they took the memory card to police and saw the images, they didn't recognize the woman at all. "She said, 'I don't have any idea who that is,''' Chapman said. Chapman said stealing artificial flowers from graves can be lucrative. Some of the arrangements sell for up to $500. Once stolen, they are rearranged and then resold at trade shows and markets, he said. Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the woman in these photos. The photos are also posted on the Oneonta Police Department's Facebook page. Anyone with information is asked to send police a private message on Facebook, or call the department 205-625-4351. They can also call Crimestoppers at 205-274-2746.
Outside of pregnancies from rape, incest, or danger to the mother, there is no reason to murder a baby. Fuck a woman's right to choose, she is made to carry a baby. Biology is quite simple.
This shit is scary and creeps me out. I need a drink( of whiskey). I just feel so sorry for people who are so lost and unfocused they wind up in a cult.
My God, have you seen Bradley Cooper's latest look - 40lbs heavier and looking pretty damn hot. The Oscar nominated Actor can look good in ANYTHING, at any weight and still look absolutely gorgeous!!
The website says: There's nothing quite like the sexy, silly, naked, stupid bromances of the "Pad". It's a bunch of mostly-straight, ab-tastically hot, college-age guys living in an enormous fake-Tuscan mansion in Arizona. I don't believe they're straight.

Sherri Shepherd does not want anything to do with her unborn surrogate baby ... because she believes her estranged husband defrauded her into having the kid in the first place so he could get child support ... this according to multiple sources connected with the couple. TMZ broke the story ... Sherri and her husband Lamar Sally each separately filed legal docs to end their marriage. The big complication -- a baby will be born this month to a surrogate who signed a contract with Sherri and Lamar. Now our sources say ... the baby was conceived with Lamar's sperm, but NOT Sherri's egg. Now here's where it gets tricky. We're told Sherri does not want custody or even to be considered a parent ... because she doesn't want to get stuck with massive child support payments. Sherri wants a judge to rule she has no parental rights or responsibilities -- which would shut the door to child support. She claims Lamar defrauded her -- that he got her to sign on for a surrogate birth knowing full well he would divorce her and then nail her to the wall for child support. Our Lamar sources say Sherri tried to get pregnant in vitro and when it didn't work she got deeply involved in the surrogacy process. Another twist ... Sherri has filed for divorce in New Jersey and Lamar has filed in California. This is not a coincidence. We did some digging, and found New Jersey courts generally do NOT recognize surrogacy agreements, which means Lamar would probably be shut down. Not so in Cali.
My dad, a former sociology professor, insists that there are more masculine gay men than there are stereotypical gay men. He says, it''s just that the stereotypes are more apparent. I''m not exactly the most masculine of men, so, I feel like he''s telling me I''m an anomaly. %0D\ %0D\ Is he right? And if so, where does he get this from? How does he know this?

Since 1992. I'm afraid to catching an STI At least I'm still alive.
It''s strange. I sometimes wonder how some people can date so much. I only find somebody attractive like once in a blue moon!
Still no homo.
Although it has been around earlier than that, we have known about the existence of AIDS since 1981. Since then, we have come up with new drugs to combat it. But we still don't have a cure, and gay men are still seroconverting. Why? Is it ignorance of tried-and-true prevention methods (don't whine about lack of access when there's more access to HIV/AIDS education materials now than there's ever been) or just the inevitable result of self-destructive tendencies caused by internalized homophobia?
He's a retired intellectual property lawyer. Good-hearted and well-meaning. But GD it, just about every time I go out onto my patio (he lives next door) to water plants or clean stuff up (multiple times per week, depending on weather -- more, obviously, in the growing months), he suddenly 'appears'. He has this booming voice and yells HELLO! so loud (to announce himself) I practically crap myself. I know he isn't trying to be cute and sneak up on me, but it amounts to it. Don't like that. Also don't like being bugged when I'm doing yard work. I don't have a gate and it wouldn't be practical/aesthetic to put one in. The few times I have ventured onto their yard, uninvited, to chat with him and his wife, I haven't been received well. I got the message: it's OK for him to invade my privacy, but not vice versa. I gotta tread light with this guy and his wife. I take off during the year for weeks at a time and they take care of mail, cats, etc. while I'm away. I do the same for them when they travel. Yes, he's probably bored and lonely, but damn it, so am I sometimes and I don't go bugging people uninvited. I'm beginning to hate going out to water. I've tried the body English thing and being somewhat brusque, but he doesn't seem to get it. Sorry this is so long. Solutions? Suggestions? I've thought about turning the hose on him, but that's not practical, ha ha! TIA!
Do you watch it the show for hot dudes? Do you ever yell at the teevee: "Hey, brainiacs! How come I knew the answer and YOU didn't!"
According to Popnography, Robert Downey Jr. tells Rolling Stone magazine that his rumored bisexuality was something he manufactured: "A lot of my peer group think I'm an eccentric bisexual. That's OK. Being relaxed about sexuality is something you're born with...[My bisexuality] was manufactured. I didn't have an identity. I was playing around. I expressed it. I grew up in the Rocky Horror Picture Show world, where even my butch friends turned out to be androgynous on Saturday nights."
Attached is a history of the Speedo from an Australian point of view. This paragraph caught my eye:%0D\ %0D\ ''American men have an aversion to displaying their bodies in public,'' one German visitor blogged. ''Ever since gay men came out of the closet in the ''80s and showed us who they were, straight American men went into the closet to show us what they weren''t. Before the late ''80s men wore shorter shorts and swimwear was short and fitted. Men used to be so free and liberated then. Now they are scared.''%0D\ %0D\ Amen! Americans need to get over their body aversion. The full article attached.
What albums are you looking forward to? What new artists have you discovered? I'm really digging this British band that goes by the name of Arthur Beatrice. Their debut album drops Feb 24.
I have and it was heaven......
For any relationship to work there has to be compromise. I get that. You might even pretend to like something or think it's interesting when in fact it's opaque to you or you might secretly HATE it. You might even learn enough about the topic/ to be conversant when you don't really give a shit. Maybe it's a TV show they're into? Here's mine. The Diane Riehm show on NPR. He loves it. I fucking hate it. Secretly. Secretly.
I''m thinking about doing this. There''s this guy at the gym I''m obsessed with. He seems totally narcissistic and I suspect he would love to have another guy worship him. Has anyone attempted this?
Continuing a great thread with fabulous pecs.
A Facebook friend of mine (44 years old) just posted pics of her nineteen-year-old son and one of his "bros," and they were both wearing black grandpa socks-- the kind that go halfway up the calf-- with white beach shoes, tee shirts, and shorts. No, they aren''t nerds. They''re jocks. All the "grown-ups" are making fun of them in the comments, but the mom says her son insists this is the look now.

Oh God, she's still a delusional mess! In a new interview with the San Francisco Examiner, Jackson talks about his upcoming part in Ryan Murphy’s HBO pilot about open relationships. Jackson, himself in sober recovery, will play a meth addict. Teasing the new HBO show, the actor, who has already appeared nude onstage, admits he has no caveats when it comes to getting naked for his HBO role "only" if it’s “germane to the story.” In September, Jackson filed for divorce. A month later, he publicly began dating a fellow actor. At the same time, Jackson shaved his head, grew a mustache and got Elvis Presley lyrics tattooed on his arm. The media labeled the drastic transition for the once clean-cut actor as a sign of a midlife crisis. “I have had quite a difficult and transitional year. Despite this newfound reputation as a 38-year-old bad boy, Jackson said settling down and raising a family is something he’s always wanted.“I have known I was going to be a dad as long as I can remember,” he said. Addressing the daily barrage of twitter and Instagram selfies Jackson has been posting of himself kissing his new boyfriend. Cheyenne tagged his latest selfies WeAreWellAwareHowAnnoyingWeAre
If not, why do chicks starting screaming so soon when a penis is inserted? Why doesn''t the guy start screaming like crazy too through the entire thing like the chick? Not all women can be faking it. The penis and vagine are suppose to be made up of the same material. I would love to get a feel for whatever these women are experiencing getting fucked in the pussy. For guys, it can never feel "that good". Guys get the rush when they cum finally. Not fair.
Met a guy on Grindr last night. (Should I post pic?) Anyway, he came over and had some ecstasy. Never tried it but he had me put it in my south mouth lol Holy fuck that's some good shit. We watched Enter the Void a bit on Netflix and i could t control myself. His cock was in my mouth within minutes. I felt so physically connected with him. He shot up some coke and I passed out. He woke me up and had made breakfast so that was cool. I asked him if I could buy some ecstasy from him but he said he'd just bring some more tonight. It's not too bad right? We're not talking meth right?
Wacky, quirky, highly entertaining film. Tilda Swinton will get a Best Supporting Actress nomination. Chris Evans should have done a love scene with Ed Harris.
This thread replaces the earlier one where the links did not work for some people. I have switched the photos to a different hosting site. Oh, and to answer another question, the reason I started a separate thread is because these are all Israeli men - so I thought they could have their own special thread separate from the other men & soldiers etc. #1 - Naked Israeli ass in front of a gorgeous lake
I can't remember if I first saw it here on DL. Anyway, it's worth another look. It's so funny in so many ways.
...... or know what it's called? My great grandmother use to tell a story about cheating death. When she was young and living in Jerusalem she became very sick and her parents were told she would die. Her mother went to her rabbi who found a woman who was conected to their temple who taught her how to perform a ritual that changed my great grandmother's name so the Angel of Death couldn't find her. She survived and fifteen years later her husband's doctor found that he had cancer.. She was told there was nothing that could be done to save him, he would soon die. She performed the name changing ritual to trick the Angel of Death and he lived for another ten years. I had thought that the ritual/ceremony was just one of her stories but I've heard versions of the same story from several people over the years, primarily from people who had lived in Jerusalem. Has anyone heard of this? Or know what it's called?
I was reading about how self-proclaimed uber-gay Leo Domenico and Mitch Vaughn have girlfriends, even though they claim to be gay. Honestly, don't you feel weird about "gay" men who lie about their sexual orientation and in reality are into women?

Complete with hokey, American flyover 'sadness' music and fading in-and-out images of the motorcades of coffins and Dutch flags at half-staff.

The world is abuzz with news that actor Laverne Cox has become the first transgender person to appear on the cover of Time magazine. If I understand the current state of the ever-shifting ethic and rhetoric of transgenderism, that is not quite true: Bradley Manning, whom we are expected now to call Chelsea, beat Cox to the punch by some time. Manning’s announcement of his intention to begin living his life as a woman and to undergo so-called sex-reassignment surgery came after Time’s story, but, given that we are expected to defer to all subjective experience in the matter of gender identity, it could not possibly be the case that Manning is a transgendered person today but was not at the time of the Time cover simply because Time was unaware of the fact, unless the issuance of a press release is now a critical step in the evolutionary process. As I wrote at the time of the Manning announcement, Bradley Manning is not a woman. Neither is Laverne Cox.
So inspiring. No tits this time?

The pop-star Lana Del Rey denied this week that she had “slept her way to the top”. This was the patient response to an interviewer’s question about her song, “F***ed My Way Up To The Top”, in which Lana addresses the sort of wholly idiotic, culturally acceptable trope that occurs whenever a young-ish woman is found being successful at, well, literally anything. “It’s a commentary,” Lana explained, coming across in print as more affable than I’d be during similar dimwitted probing. She wasn’t, Lana underlined, saying she DID sleep her way to the top, she was saying she was aware of that general tedious mumbling which drips from people’s mouths whenever a woman has acquired something another man - and often another woman - hasn’t. Yes, women are just as guilty of this. It drips from our gobs so freely when we’re faced with our own shortcomings. The mythical concept of the all-powerful, bewitching vagina which can give leverage to any pay deal or promotion is so entrenched in earthly society that even women stare at other women’s success and mutter, “Who did she sleep with to get that?” Obviously, nobody glances at William Adams - Will.i.am - who is currently enjoying the financial boost of being a partner in Beats headphones - recently acquired by Apple for $3bn - and mutters, “Pfft, who did he sleep with to get his place in THAT meeting?” Nobody glances at Will, feeling a mixture of jealousy, admiration and vague insecurity at their own relatively petty successes and invents a story, to comfort themselves, in which Will.i.am has probably slept with a lot of music industry men. And that these imaginary music industry men flipped open their laptops and said, “That was delightful. Now, how can I reward you for this?” Nobody supposes this about successful men because when men’s achievements are focused upon, people are generally wholly reasonable and logical about the hard work, talent, determination, sacrifice and steely will it requires to rise higher than other humans. Of course, people don't think that a man can screw another man and then the next day demand a job. Because, outside of wibbly wobbly porn land, how does this work exactly? Isn’t it more likely that the shagger would actually want rid of the shagee from his daily life once the act had taken place? READ MORE: LANA DEL REY: 'I HAVE SLEPT WITH A LOT OF GUYS IN THE INDUSTRY' LANA DEL REY: THE LATEST POWERFUL WOMAN THAT WE WANT TO SEE AS JUST ANOTHER TOY Is the shagger going to explain to all his underlings that an unqualified person is taking the role because of a sexual encounter several months ago that he's still paying installments on via a meeting here, a reference there, a promotion later. Nobody says this about men, because, logically, it makes no bloody sense at all. You can’t “shag your way” anywhere. Yes, you can flirt your way - men and women - into a lot of places. Light flirting oils the squeaky wheels of commerce the world over. But having sex with people is a guarantee of nothing. If a sexual act acted as a binding document of trust then women wouldn’t have been sitting beside telephones waiting for him to call since approximately 1877. I sat at a dinner recently amongst intelligent sorts hearing a very successful female friend being picked to pieces over her reported sexual history. A number of potato-shaped men were framed for 'giving her one' and thus boosting her financial acumen.

I broke my toe, and so I've been laid up the last 36 hours. I searched for some cool new music and found a couple of gems. Yes, they gave me Percocet. I narrowed down from 8 to 2. These were the two that blew me away- especially the video for the former, and the live Letterman appearance for the latter. The first is by Future Islands, "Seasons Change" and the song takes a few plays before you love it, but the video is jawdroppingly gorgeous and the dude is HAWWWTTT! They even show him without the cowboy hat. Dude is awesome sexy cowboy hot! The second is Kiesza. Inside.

My father gave me $15k. I refused to take it, and told him I did not feel right, or good about taking money from him and my mother. He told me to take the money and use it. Buy a car, spend it, start a business. Do something with it. I don't know why he did this, and I know my sisters would shit if they ever found out about it. I've spent the last few days looking online for possible business ideas. All I've found are websites telling people to start a successful website and sell it. Start a website, make it popular and make money with AdSense. Start a website and make money with PPCs, (pay-per-clicks). I can barely navigate Datalounge, so much as start websites. So I'm hoping to get some advice from Dataloungers. No one here bullshits--when it comes to money. So what kind of business should I look into?

At least that’s one of the features his health-centric building advertises.

A federal judge in Denver declared Colorado's gay marriage ban unconstitutional Wednesday, but he temporarily put the ruling on hold to give the state until next month to seek an appeal. Judge Raymond P. Moore's ruling was in response to a lawsuit filed July 1 by six gay couples who asked the court for an injunction ordering that the state's ban no longer be enforced. Colorado Republican Attorney General John Suthers and Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper had requested a stay so the issue could eventually be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court — though both agreed the state ban should be declared unconstitutional. The couples filed the lawsuit after the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ruled against Utah's gay marriage ban but put the decision on hold pending an appeal. Moore said in his ruling that Colorado's attorneys "have not met their burden" for a stay because they did not oppose the injunction. But he's giving them until Aug. 25 to seek a stay from the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver or the U.S. Supreme Court. Shortly after the ruling, Suthers filed a notice of appeal to the 10th Circuit. The matter of the injunction was never in question, only whether there would be a stay. Moore indicated as much during a hearing Tuesday. Moore said the U.S. Supreme Court has signaled that it may take up the constitutionality of gay-marriage bans, citing a decision last week granting a stay in the Utah case. The Supreme Court said state officials don't have to recognize the marriages there until their appeal is heard. "There is a fuse that has been lit that is burning across federal courts, and all of the district courts that have looked at the issue seem to be pointing in a single direction," Moore said during the hearing. "But not withstanding that, it seems as if with wet fingers the Supreme Court has put its finger on that fuse and perhaps said, 'Wait.'" Gay couples applauded the ruling, but said they were still waiting for a final resolution. "It's been a long time coming," said one of the plaintiffs, Breanna Alexander, 30, of Arvada. "But we're still meeting opposition that feels even more unjust when it comes to frivolous appeals." The fight to legalize gay marriage began in earnest after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the Clinton-era federal Defense of Marriage Act last year. The majority ruled that it was unconstitutional for the law to deny federal benefits to same-sex married couples. Same-sex marriage now is legal in 19 U.S. states, including several socially conservative ones. Recent polls show a majority of Americans support gay marriage. Colorado voters banned gay marriage in 2006, though civil unions became legal in 2013. The couples' federal lawsuit alleged the state's same-sex marriage ban violates due-process and equal-protection rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Although some of the couples in the lawsuit have civil unions in Colorado, the lawsuit called them unequal and an inadequate substitute to marriage. Suthers' office said the question of gay marriage should be resolved by the U.S. Supreme Court. Hickenlooper also said the legal process should play itself out, but he has reiterated his support for same-sex marriage. After the ruling, Suthers said he was gratified that Moore issued a temporary stay. The attorney general said he expects the appeals court to continue the stay and believes the nation's highest court will be the final authority in gay marriage cases. Even though Colorado's gay marriage ban is still in effect, clerks in Boulder, Denver, and Pueblo counties have issued marriage licenses to gay couples after several favorable court rulings. Denver and Pueblo counties have stopped because of a state Supreme Court order, and Suthers is trying to get Boulder to cease issuing licenses to gay couples.

Days Of Our Lives' Eileen Davidson Is Joining RHOBH, Says Source By Emily Strohm 07/23/2014 at 06:55 PM EDT One way to add more drama to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Throw in a couple of former soap opera stars. Just a week after PEOPLE learned that Days of Our Lives alum Lisa Rinna will appear in the Bravo series, a source says that Eileen Davidson is now set to join her soap opera star pal next season on the reality show. The new additions will take the place of former housewives Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud. While Davidson, 55, and Rinna, 51, might be newbies when it comes to the Housewives franchise, this won't be the first time they've appeared together on television. Davidson first got her start on the daytime soap Days of Our Lives in 1993 when she starred as the villainous Kristen DiMera alongside Lisa Rinna, who played Billie Reed from 1992 to 1995. Both actresses later returned to reprise their roles on the NBC series. Bravo has yet to officially confirm whether Davidson is joining the cast.
With the 1990s comeback in full swing, countless blog posts and articles have been written about the TV teen heartthrobs from the decade. Mark Paul Gosselaar. Luke Perry. James van der Beek. Mario Lopez. Many gay men who grew up in the ’90s have credited these guys for awakening their inner homosexuals. But what about all the hot TV dads from back then? We think they deserve a little credit, too. Scroll down to see some of the hunky TV patriarchs from the ’90s who totally helped to turn us gay… See all them at the link provided. Mista Sheffield was hot as fuck!
If you ever happen to come across a Republican on television these days, chances are that you will hear the name Ronald Reagan. Recent Republican debates are the perfect example of the love fest that the current Republican party has for Reagan as each candidate name drops the former president at every turn. If you only listened to conservatives you would think that Jesus Christ was the only person above Reagan on the totem pole of conservative love. They talk about his love of low taxes, less government and conservative family values. The problem is that when you step out of the conservative dream and come back to reality, you find that not only was Ronald Reagan a bad president, but he was one of the worst presidents we've seen in modern times. Reagan's policies have destroyed the United States for three decades, and for the eight years he was in office, here are eight reasons why Ronald Reagan was the worst president of our lifetime. 1. Reagan cut taxes for the Rich, increased taxes on the Middle Class - Ronald Reagan is loved by conservatives and was loved by big business throughout his presidency and there's a reason for it. When Reagan came into office in January of 1981, the top tax rate was 70%, but when he left office in 1989 the top tax rate was down to only 28%. As Reagan gave the breaks to all his rich friends, there was a lack of revenue coming into the federal government. In order to bring money back into the government, Reagan was forced to raise taxes eleven times throughout his time in office. One example was when he signed into law the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982. Reagan raised taxes seven of the eight years he was in office and the tax increases were felt hardest by the lower and middle class. 2. Tripling the National Debt - As Reagan cut taxes for the wealthy, the government was left with less money to spend. When Reagan came into office the national debt was $900 billion, by the time he left the national debt had tripled to $2.8 trillion. 3. Iran/Contra - In 1986, a group of Americans were being held hostage by a terrorist group with ties to Iran. In an attempt to free the hostages, Ronald Reagan secretly sold arms and money to Iran. Much of the money that was received from the trade went to fund the Nicaragua Contra rebels who were in a war with the Sandinista government of Nicaragua. When the scandal broke in the Untied States it became the biggest story in the country, Reagan tried to down play what happened, but never fully recovered. 4. Reagan funded Terrorists - The attacks on 9/11 by al-Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden brought new attention to international terrorism. All of a sudden, Americans coast to coast wore their American flag pins, ate their freedom fries and couldn't wait to go to war with anyone who looked like a Muslim. What Americans didn't realize was that the same group that attacked the United States on 9/11 was funded by Ronald Reagan in the 1980s. Prepping for a possible war with the Soviet Union, Ronald Reagan spent billions of dollars funding the Islamist mujahidin Freedom Fighters in Afghanistan. With billions of American dollars, weapons and training coming their way, the Taliban and Osama Bin Laden took everything they were given and gave it back to the United States over a decade later in the worst possible way imaginable. 5. Unemployment issues - When Ronald Reagan came into office 1981, unemployment was at 7.5%. After Reagan cut taxes for the wealthy, he began raising taxes on the middle and lower class. Corporations started to ship more jobs out of the United States while hiring cheap foreign labor in order to make a bigger profit. While corporations made billions, Americans across the country lost their jobs. As 1982 came to a close, unemployment was nearly 11%. Unemployment began to drop as the years went on, but the jobs that were created were low paying and barely helped people make ends meet. The middle and lower class had their wages nearly frozen as the top earners saw dramatic increases in salary. 6. Ignoring AIDS - By the time the 1980s came around, AIDS had become one of the most frightening things to happen to the country in recent memory. No one understood what AIDS and HIV really was and when people don't understand something, they become scared of it. The fear of the unknown was sweeping across the country and Americans needed a leader to speak out about this horrible virus, that leader never came. Instead of grabbing the bull by the horns and taking charge, Reagan kept quiet. Reagan couldn't say the words AIDS or HIV until seven years into his presidency, a leader not so much. 7. Reagan gave amnesty to 3 million Undocumented Immigrants - In today's GOP, the idea of any immigrant staying in the United States whether they are legal or illegal isn't something that conservatives embrace. What might shock them is that in 1982 Ronald Reagan gave nearly 3 million undocumented workers amnesty. The biggest reason for undocumented workers coming to the United States is because corporations hire them at a cheaper rate than they would an American citizen. All the laws that would have cracked down on companies who hire undocumented workers were, of course, removed from the bill. 8. His attack on Unions and the Middle Class - The Republican war on unions and the middle class has been heating up in states like Wisconsin and Ohio, but it has been going on for a long time. Unions are formed to give a united voice to the workers in an attempt to create fairness between the corporations and their employees. On August 3rd, 1981, PATCO (Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization) went on strike in an effort to get better pay and safer working conditions. Two days later, taking the side of business, Ronald Reagan fired 11,345 workers for not returning to work.

Comedienne Roseanne Barr is planning a big move from Hawaii to San Francisco, California, so she can be near her youngest son as he attends college. Buck Thomas, 19, has just completed high school and now he's hoping to get away from his mum - but she has plans to follow him to college. She says, "He's going to San Francisco... I always go where he goes; he hates that I do that. "I know it's weird but I moved across the street from the boarding school that he went to. He wanted to get away from me and go to boarding school, so I'm like, 'OK, go to boarding school', and then I moved right across the street. "You have to... Of course you wanna keep your eye on them these days... Who else is gonna wash his laundry and stuff?"
Gets a rave review in Guardian. I find it fascinating that Linklater kept the filming a secret for so many years (for those who don't know about the film, it chronicles the life of a boy and his family over 11 real years). He is a great director and I love that he is not a shameless self-promoter. He just sort of keeps it really quiet and announces his films when they're ready to be shown. Any other DLers like his work?
Good, Christ, they are trashing Obama left and right. They also wouldn't let go of Obama's scheduled "Jimmy Kimmel" appearance. TMZ is run by a gay man. What is he thinking??!

I need any and all information about the three uber bottoms. I am in love with all three of them, and as luck should have it they''ve all retired from porn so I''m left pining for new information. Does anyone know their real names/whereabouts/recent pics/etc? I''ve already found Kevin Williams on Facebook but the other two seem to have disappeared off the face of the earth. Any and all information you may know about them is greatly appreciated!!!
God damn her feet are huge!
I think not!
Out of all the homophobic actors out there--and I’m sure their numbers are legion--Jensen Ackles irritates me the most. I don’t understand the gay men who worship him. He’s undeniably good looking but he can’t open his mouth without making a homophobic comment. What kills me is that gays everywhere take up for him just because of his looks. “Oh, he didn’t mean it that way;” or “Oh, it was just a joke;” or “Oh, you’re taking his comments too literally;” bullshit like that. Are you fuckin’ kiddin’ me??? I’m sorry but affecting a lispy high-pitched voice while ineffectually slapping at someone OVER AND OVER AND OVER, TIME AFTER TIME AFTER TIME, IN EVERY POSSIBLE CONTRIVED SITUATION isn’t funny. It isn’t a joke. And, similarly, using the word “gay” or “pansy” as a derogatory adjective in interviews isn’t okay either. Those things are evidence of a belief, people, an attitude toward gays, and I’m sick of guys lusting over him. I’m 46 and own my own architectural firm, and I have 6 architects working for me. Two of them are gay and about 10 years younger than me, and I had listen to them all goddam night go on about this guy. Even on DataLounge his name pops up constantly. It’s like a bunch of freakin’ yeshiva boys jonesin’ to blow motherfuckin’ Hitler. I don’t know what Ackles makes per episode, but word is that he clears 40k to 50k for an appearance at a “Supernatural” convention. So far this year he’s done twelve. On top of that, once he’s there he charges for meet-and-greets and photo ops, and it’s gays who are putting a lot of that money in his pocket. (Unless you’re [i]too[i/] gay. Then there’s no photo because he won’t pose with you.) Gays are also the ones glued to their tv sets each week, boosting his show’s ratings while they queer every gaze between him and his on-screen brother. [i]Idiots.[i/] This guy doesn’t even have the testicular fortitude of Sabrina the Teenage Witch! He won’t just come out and say what he thinks about gays, gay marriage or even politics because he knows it would hurt his career. In fact, his wife will re-Tweet stuff showing mild LGBT support just to muddy the waters and throw people, most likely Hollywood producers, off their GOP scent. However, the latest is that Stone Park Trust, the same trust that owns his Brentwood property--the same trust for which he’s the trustee--has allegedly made past donations to NOM, Prop 8 and Romney’s campaign, so anyone who thinks Ackles isn’t a Republican is nuts. His wife’s Twitter page practically spells it out, along with their very devout “I love me some Jesus” status. “Jensen’s favorite book is the Bible;” “His favorite actor is Jim Caviezel;” “His favorite time of year is Easter.” Blah, blah, blah. Man, I got nothing against anyone’s religion or their personal beliefs about gays and lesbians. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is entitled to their own opinions, but that doesn’t mean that I have to buy their product or watch their show. I’m not going to further any actor’s career so they can fight harder against my rights. And I’m sure not going to give someone like Ackles a starring role in my fantasies. I mean, compare his douchebaggery with the incredibly respectful and classy comments George Clooney made about constantly being called gay. Night and day. Night and day. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE HOMOPHOBIA, PEOPLE. STOP LUSTING OVER ASSHOLES.
Any gossip?\ \ It''s been around for a while now, surely someone has to have some dirt.\ \ Who loves each other? Who hates each other? Who''s fucking who?
I've been wondering whether this movie will be a big flop, or a mega hit. Well, this trailer makes me think the latter. If it is half a funny, half as exciting and half as stylish as this trailer it will be a HUGE HIT. Marvel is doing it right.

Sarah Palin: ‘True Blood’ wanted a cameo By SARAH SMITH | 7/23/14 2:34 PM EDT HBO’s “True Blood” found itself back in the political spotlight Tuesday when Sarah Palin revealed she declined a request to make a cameo on the show. “The brilliant minds of ‘True Blood’ were brazen enough to ask me to do a cameo on their show, apparently so they could insult a conservative woman in person instead of just all conservative women in general,” Palin told conservative website Breitbart News. “To producers who throw these deceitfully ‘flattering’ bones that sound fun on the surface, is it really any wonder I don’t accept your offers to participate in your shows?” While Palin conceded that the offer wasn’t made in any “negative way,” she decided to decline regardless. “I’d put any mama grizzly in America against a vampire any day; for only one of them actually exists,” she said. The hit vampire show made waves in the Beltway after last Sunday’s episode featured a fictional fundraiser for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) at the George W. Bush Presidential Library. The Texas Republicans who gathered to see Cruz — unsurprisingly to those who follow the show — were brutally murdered. The real-life Ted Cruz was not amused. “Sunday night, they aired a misogynist and profanity-ridden episode where Texas Republicans are murdered attending a ‘Ted Cruz fundraiser,’” Cruz wrote on his Facebook page Tuesday. “Well, I’m sorry to have lost the vampire vote, but am astonished (and amused) that HBO is suggesting that hard-core leftists are blood-sucking fiends….”

Cannes Leonardo DiCaprio who famously dated supermodels Gisele Bündchen, Bar Refaeli and Erin Heatherton seems to be losing his touch. A few months ago his advances were rejected by 25 year-old Next model Heather Hahn in New York. At Cannes, where the 38 year-old Great Gatsby actor was greeted as a conquering megastar, he did not seem to have the same effect on 20 year-old British model of the moment Cara Delevingne. According to Life & Style... "Leo kept hitting on her at the 'Great Gatsby' bash at Cannes ... He even lunged at her at one point, and she dodged him ... He was begging her to go back to his hotel room, but she declined."
This 20 something year old femme, Grammy-award winning songstress and sometimes actress has been a beard for a number of singers and A'listers in a desperate attempt to suppress her lesbianism. Although she is a fearless advocate, and generous supporter, she is worried how her fans would react and more importantly her record label if she were to come out. She prefers to take her girlfriends for trysts to Europe, during breaks from touring, because she thinks she would be safer.
For some wholesome fun.

Here is the rule of the Internet: If you combine two bizarre, viral things, you are going to get something even more bizarre and viral. In this case, it's hipster beards and flower crowns. Although hipster beards may have peaked and flower crowns may have withered away during the polar vortex, the two trends have come together to unleash an unstoppable new style for meme hairy hipster dudes everywhere: flower beards. That's right: Bearded men across the country are taking advantage of the good weather to pick some flowers to adorn their faces. The combined effect is, shall we say, peak hipster.

OK, I'm finally ready to get rid of cable because it just isn't worth the expense. I'm keeping cable internet, in fact I'm increasing the speed. So what now? What online TV services do you use/like best? My experience with Netflix was that it was mostly old direct-to-video movies no one wanted to see in the first place. One of the other services (Hulu?) wanted you to BUY newer movies instead of just watching them once. Hulu/ Vudu/ Amazon Prime/ Something else? What works for you?

Gay porn star Bruno Knight has been arrested for attempting to traffic samples of crystal meth from the US to the UK inside his body. Knight, whose real name is Philip Gizzie, had attempted to board a Virgin Atlantic flight at Los Angeles Airport in California when he was stopped and questioned by custom officers tipped off by the US Drug Enforcement Administration. Officers noticed something was amiss with Knight after he was said to be "moving erratically" and "sweating profusely". He told border officials he had been partying in Hollywood with several friends where he had taken methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana and GHB. But after being taken to a holding room he later admitted to carrying three packets of crystal meth in his anus. He was able to dislodge two of the packages by himself, however he needed to be taken to Centinela Hospital in Inglewood to get the third removed via an enema. The packages weighed a total of 226 grams, or just short of half a pound. Knight is currently being held at Los Angeles Metropolitan Detention Centre awaiting charges.

This Making Of...special is fairly interesting. Mr. Jennifer Aniston is hot.
And I don't mean just because he plays a child's game for a living. Here in New York, people are acting like he's a beloved family member because he plays for the hapless Mets. Everyone says he's such a great guy. He looks great ... not arrogant at. He's self-effacing. He acts like he deserves to be "Miss July" in a car repair shop calendar. He gives gift baskets of his baseball memorabilia as a consolation prize the morning after he autographs them. That's after giving them the gift that keeps on giving: a rear view. Plus, he's looking real great of late. His face looks like a model's. I can believe he's pulling a genuine one over everyone. He has somehow convinced people that he's worthy of a second look.
Never heard of him before a few days ago. He sorta looks like the love child of Jesus and Brad Pitt. What do we think, bitches?
Someone get a bottle of water for him!

This happened not too far from me although I live in eastern Ontario. I see CNN has now picked up the story. Very sad. (CNN) -- The mayor of a community just outside Montreal died of anaphylactic shock Sunday after being attacked by wasps while on vacation. Lucie Roussel, the mayor of La Prairie, was 51, according to a release issued by the city. Roussel had served as mayor since 2003. A lawyer by training, Roussel is survived by her two children, Constance, 20, and Antonin, 19. Roussel was attacked by approximately 15 wasps, according to a spokeswoman for La Prairie, Chantal Charron. However, Charron said the mayor was not allergic to wasps. Canadian broadcaster CTV spoke with Roussel's former colleague Reine Hebert, who spoke of the loss. "I'm thinking about her family. They lost their father a few years ago. You can't do that to the family. I mean it's so sad." Hebert continued, saying "It's sad for the people, it's sad for her two children, for the whole city." Several politicians expressed their condolences online after word of Roussel's death became public, including the mayor of Montreal, Denis Coderre, who tweeted about the death, saying it was "very sad," and offered his condolences to her family and her two children. Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.
Premieres Sunday July 13. Caroline, Kathy, and Jacqueline are out. Dina is back along with 2 new women.
With apologies to socially responsible Californians: Who on DL has had to put up with a person -- a friend, acquaintance, work colleague, relative -- who can't simply say, 'I'm sorry, I can't do so-and-so' or 'I've got other plans for that night' but instead engages in this chicken-shit habit of running out the clock and saying *nothing* when you have invited them to do something? You're therefore stranded, waiting for an answer and unable to make alternate plans, out of a misplaced (and increasingly undeserved) sense of loyalty toward the person who's playing the 'California No' game? Any more, if I don't hear yes or no within a few hours, I say, 'I know you're busy, and if I don't hear from you by noon tomorrow, I'll go ahead and make other plans.' I'm so tired of all the negotiating and game-playing and 'busier-therefore-more-important-than-thou' BULLSHIT going on out there. The person who has done this to me several times *always* claims not to have received the message. Or to have gotten it at the very last minute, so unable to go, meet, whatever.
Anyone watching this guy now? I want to sew his mouth shut. God, the camera guy must have ear plugs in and and plastic covering his face from all the spit coming out of Sharpton's mouth. Learn English, fool!
John Travolta Can't Stop Former Pilot's Lawsuit Over Secrets (Exclusive) 1:44 PM PDT 7/22/2014 by Eriq Gardner A California appeals court allows Douglas Gotterba to challenge the validity of a confidentiality agreement. Douglas Gotterba, who worked for John Travolta's aircraft company Alto in the 1980s, will get the opportunity to argue in a lawsuit that he holds no confidentiality duties to the actor. On Tuesday, the airline pilot was given the go-ahead sign by a California appeals court. Gotterba worked for Travolta for six years. According to press interviews he's given, he claims that his relationship with Travolta was more than professional. He stopped working for the actor in 1987, at which point he entered into a written termination agreement with Alto. Nearly 25 years later, Gotterba came forward to "tell the story of his life and those involved in it," including his personal relationship with Travolta. According to Gotterba, he was "unwillingly thrust" into the gossip tabloids by public revelations from another former Travolta employee. Upon hearing that Gotterba had spoken to the National Enquirer and was planning a book, Travolta's attorney Martin Singer sent out cease-and-desist letters. The lawyer warned Gotterba about breaching the confidentiality provision of his termination agreement. Gotterba's own attorney then demanded to see the asserted confidentiality provisions. He eventually saw what Singer was relying upon when the parent company of the National Enquirer forwarded the relevant portion of a four-page agreement. But the airline pilot maintains that this agreement is "not authentic," that it is merely an early draft of another three-page agreement that didn't contain the confidentiality clause. So Gotterba sued Travolta and Alto seeking a judicial declaration about which agreement was valid and whether confidentiality was really enforceable. In response, Alto aimed to kill Gotterba's lawsuit by bringing an anti-SLAPP motion. In instances where someone's First Amendment rights are at stake, California law provides defendants with an early exit as well as the possibility of recovering legal fees. In this case, the defendants asserted that Travolta's right to petition was protected. The question for the trial judge and then the appeals court was whether Gotterba's lawsuit was based upon Singer's demand letters. California appeals court Presiding Justice Arthur Gilbert says that it is not based upon Singer's "sabre-rattling" but rather "the validity of the asserted termination agreements." He adds, "Although the prelitigation letters may have triggered Gotterba's complaint and may be evidence in support of the complaint, they are not the basis of the complaint." The justice says that to hold otherwise "would lead to the absurd result that a person receiving a demand letter threatening legal action for breach of contract would be precluded from seeking declaratory relief to determine the validity of the contract. Declaratory relief would be limited to situations where the parties have not communicated their disagreement."
I seriously don't want to spend time with most people anymore even friends who I think pretty highly of. I just want to go out alone or spend time with my cat. Anyone else ever go through this? I feel like an asshole for always saying no to plans but bring around people makes me unhappy. Is this how ill probably be the rest of my life?
[bold]Brave Australian Olympic Games champion Ian Thorpe tells: I’m gay [/bold] AFTER years of personal struggle, Olympic hero Ian Thorpe has bravely revealed he is gay. The 31-year-old confirms his sexuality for the first time tonight in an exclusive interview on Channel 10, telling all to veteran British interviewer Sir Michael Parkinson. It’s understood the interview, which Parkinson has described as one of the best he has ever conducted, includes a full admission from Thorpe that he is gay despite having dated women in the past. In the emotional sit-down shot last month, Thorpe also details the years of depression he has battled while denying his sexuality from the world.

David Gregory’s time is nearly up at “Meet the Press,” sources told Page Six, and he could be replaced as moderator of the nation’s longest-running TV show soon after the November midterm elections. While NBC News President Deborah Turness has publicly supported the embattled Gregory, there are serious concerns about the losing battle to turn around the show’s sinking ratings. Viewership is down a whopping 43 percent compared to when Gregory ascended to the moderator’s chair in December 2008, after the death of Tim Russert. The show finished in third place behind CBS’s “Face the Nation” and ABC’s “This Week” in the second quarter of 2014. An NBC source said, “The discussion is whether to make a change before or after the midterm elections. Just after the midterms would give the new moderator time to settle in.” According to insiders, NBC political director and chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd is the rightful heir to Gregory, but he has not been officially offered the job. Other names said to be in the frame include “Today” anchor Savannah Guthrie, who comes from a political background but is unlikely to be released from the flagship morning show where she’s hugely popular. Guthrie is also due to give birth to her first child next month and will return to “Today” after maternity leave. MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” team Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have also been said be angling for a Sunday slot, but NBC insiders said there are concerns about putting a partisan host in charge of “Meet the Press,” as Scarborough is a former Republican congressman. After the Washington Post recently reported that NBC had commissioned a “psychological consultant” to interview Gregory’s wife and friends, NBC publicly stood by Gregory, who denounced the psychologist claim as “gossip reporting gone wild.” An NBC spokesperson told us Tuesday night, “We heard the same false rumors and suggest you take them with a grain of salt, as we did.”

The bankrupt city of Detroit is shutting off water at a rate of 3,000 residents per week. It also recently increased water rates by nine per cent. Nearly half of the 329,000 accounts are in arrears and the average cost of a Detroit water bill is double the national average. Maude Barlow, chair of the Council of Canadians, flagged Detroit's plan to deal with delinquent accounts to the United Nations earlier this year. The UN calls the plan to shut off water a clear violation of human rights. "I've seen this in the poorest countries in the world," Barlow said. "This is what we call failed states, but to see this in North America, it's a disgrace." "We're sitting on the Great Lakes, supplying a fifth of the world’s surface water. It’s appalling," Barlow said. Barlow will be part of a convoy bringing what she called "good Canadian, public, clean water" across the river to Detroit on July 24. "Our water is their water," Barlow said. Maude Barlow Maude Barlow will lead a convoy of Canadians bringing water to Detroit on July 24. (Council of Canadians) She is also preparing an appeal to the White House. "We’re going right to the top," Barlow said. She has one question for President Barack Obama. "There are potentially 500,000 people who are going to spend a good part of the summer, in the heat, in the summer, without water. Is that OK with you?" she said Do you agree?

I just finished the book "Thing of Beauty" (which I recommend) It's a great look at a different era. It was sad how many people in her life insisted that she couldn't be gay b/c she was so pretty. It also sounded like her narcissistic mom really did a number on her and made her a raging borderline. It sounded like there was some growth. Did any of you know any of these characters? I'm particularly fascinated by Way Bandy and some of the photographers. Also, the book didn't say it, but I get the distinct impression that Patti Hansen was the one who introduced her to heroin.

It would be difficult to come with a more on-the-nose metaphor for New York City's income inequality problem than the new high-rise apartment building coming to 40 Riverside Boulevard, which will feature separate doors for regular, wealthy humans and whatever you call the scum that rents affordable housing. Extell Development Company, the firm behind the new building, announced its intentions to segregate the rich and poor to much outrage last year. Fifty-five of the luxury complex's 219 units would be marked for low-income renters—netting some valuable tax breaks for Extell—with the caveat that the less fortunate tenants would stick to their own entrance. The city's Department of Housing Preservation and Development approved Extell's Inclusionary Housing Program application for the 33-story tower this week, the New York Post reports. The status grants Extell the aforementioned tax breaks and the right to construct a larger building than would ordinarily be allowed. According to the Daily Mail, affordable housing tenants will enter through a door situated on a "back alley." Any of the unwashed folk who complain about such a convenient arrangement, of course, are just being ungrateful. As the Mail points out, fellow poor-door developer David Von Spreckelsen explained as much last year: "No one ever said that the goal was full integration of these populations," said David Von Spreckelsen, senior vice president at Toll Brothers. "So now you have politicians talking about that, saying how horrible those back doors are. I think it's unfair to expect very high-income homeowners who paid a fortune to live in their building to have to be in the same boat as low-income renters, who are very fortunate to live in a new building in a great neighborhood." In these economically fraught times, it's easy to forget that the super rich earned their right to never see you, hear you, smell you, or consider your pitiful existence. Expecting them to share an entrance would be unfair.
I know she''s not everyone''s cup of tea, but I''m personally glad to see her career in recovery mode.

Or does HBO only do feature films highlighting Republican dimwits (e.g. Katherine Harris in Recount and Sarah Palin in Game Change)?
Is it a drive towards self-destruction or a drive towards the destruction of others (i.e. murder, torture)?
I met Steve McQueen and Robert Vaughn during the filming....I stole stuff out of Napoleon Solo's briefcase.... It was one of the first times I knew I was gay...it was Steve McQueens stand-in that caught my eye and made me feel funny down there.. Good times
So fucking hot
Article from Salon today. The most interesting statement in the article is this one: "If there is fire to be found in this great cloud of gay smoke, it would be remarkable. The guy’s been A-list famous since 1983, and there has been no public evidence at all, none, to support the rumors." I've been saying this for years on the DL, to much disdain from fellow DLers. In my view, it is just not plausible that a mega-watt star like TC could be so famous for so long, engage in gay-sex seeking activities, and yet not a shred of evidence can confirm it (or even hint at it). Moreover, the rumor that he is gay seems to exist in a vacuum. It comes out of thin air from people who have just decided he must be gay (and that it's just so obvious), rather than from specific instances of TC being caught or observed in gay-sex seeking behaviors. TC is weird enough on his own from what we are able to observe publicly. Why we need to invent a closet for him to live in is beyond me.
Was anyone here a fan of this show?
Lots and lots of balls.
Say you have enough money to tide you over for a while and you want do get out of the grind to save your sanity (You''ve been caretaking for an elderly relative and working full time for a while and you need a break). You have a tolerable and even sometimes friendly relationship with the people who hire and fire.\ \ What do you say to the big kahuna when you go in to quit? What do you say that will be graceful and not burn any bridges and not seem like a cry for help or a request for pity? What''s the grown up way to deal with this?
Why he could be gay/bi: 1. He hangs with the "gay posse" Colton Haynes, Matthew Morrison, JC Chasez, Chace Crawford, Penn Badgely, etc. 2. He LOVES Les Mis 3. There've been rumors about him and Penn Badgely, him and Colton Haynes, etc. 4. Not linked with any girls recently. Why he could be straight: 1. He might hang with the "gay posse" simply because they all have the same manager? 2. There's just not much evidence on his Twitter that he's into guys or into gay interested, as opposed to Jonathan Bennett, who follows EVERY hot guy on Twitter. 3. He had a fucking BEARD recently (the hairy kind, not the female kind). I don't know any gay guys that grow facial hair! How come Shawn Pyfrom hasn't been acting lately? What has he been up to?
Has anyone been there? Are there deserts? What's it like? Do the people even pretend to be Mediterranean, or are they gazing towards the Stans, Azerbaijan, Iran?
How was it?
in America, we're obsessed once again with Israel and the shit they've stirred-up in the Middle East. Because, it's always ALL about Israel and the Palestinians. I am so complete sick of all these fuckers I can't even stand it anymore.
With more athletes coming out we should do a thread about gay athletes. Carl Lewis has to be a 'mo...right?

I’m sure this story will ruffle the feathers of many Winona-stans, but I think this is good news for Winona Ryder. Her career comeback is going well, she spent a few years doing smaller parts in smaller movies, getting some critical acclaim again, getting photographed more often and coming out in public more often. So it’s good news when the tabloids start discussing her as a scandalous and/or bizarre person. Winona’s always been a little strange, and now a new generation of tabloid readers get to enjoy it. For the young’uns, let me tell you: Winona Ryder used to be like Kristen Stewart, Selena Gomez and Jennifer Lawrence all rolled into one. Winona was HUGE. She dated her costars, she was a child actor who transitioned to adult roles beautifully, she won awards and praise, she was BFFs with some of the biggest celebrities out there and there were plenty of scandals and drama. Ah, the halcyon days of the 1990s. So this Enquirer story references some of those older scandals. Like, Johnny Depp and Winona were crazy about each other way back when (before Kate Moss, even), and Winona used to be BFFs with Gwyneth Paltrow. So, enjoy: Winona Ryder is getting weirder by the day, becoming a virtual recluse and taking potshots at her former friends. Insiders say she’s dyed her hair bright white and become obsessed with online shopping, filling her closets with unworn clothes that still have their tags. And just about the only time she leaves her home is when her cleaning staff arrives, because she can’t stand talking to them. Winona has also been trash-talking her ex-BFF Gwyneth Paltrow and former flame Johnny Depp, a source tells The ENQUIRER. “She’s alienating so many people it’s no wonder she’s turning into a hermit,” said a longtime friend of the 41-year-old actress. Winona has a “major grudge” against Gwyneth because she believes the blonde-haired beauty made unflattering comments about her in an online lifestyle blog four years ago. And Winona also never got over Gwyneth beating her out for a plum role in the 1998 hit movie “Shakespeare in Love” – and winning an Oscar for it! “Those comments were a huge embarrassment for her,” the pal said. The friend says Winona has also been blasting Depp, 50, for hooking up with 27- year Amber Heard not long after splitting with his longtime love, Vanessa Paradis, 40, last year. “Johnny couldn’t care less,” said the friend, “but she’s really ragging on him for being so predictable and going for a blonde in her twenties.” As The ENQUIRER reported in April, Winona had a fleeting hope she and “The Lone Ranger” star would reunite. “It’s really sad she’s become so vindictive,” the friend continued. “She rarely leaves the house because she hates being around people so much. And she makes sure her housekeepers don’t speak English because that way they are less likely to know who she is. “When she was younger, her eccentricities were perceived as cute and quirky, but now she’s just bizarre.” [From The Enquirer] I think the Gwyneth reference is about an old Goop post from a few years ago where Gwyneth talked about “how to break up with a friend”. And the Hollywood rumor back in 1997 was that Gwyneth outright STOLE Winona’s script for Shakespeare In Love and Goop went behind Winona’s back and got the part. And they were never friends after that. As for the Depp stuff… I’m not sure I believe Wino and Johnny still talk. She might talk smack about him (as she should, because he’s absurd), but I doubt Johnny even hears about it. Oh, and remember how Matt Damon dumped Minnie Driver (while appearing on Oprah!!!) and then he started up with Winona two seconds later? I wish people still brought that up, because that was an amazing scandal. God, I miss Winona’s scandals. I want her to start dating someone really controversial. Not Charlie Sheen! I want her to throw it down old-school, like Winona could steal Garrett Hedlund away from Kirsten Dunst. That would be fun.
Can't her big ass come up with anything else? She's a wonderful singer, worthy of better album titles that will stand the test of time.

Original Buffy the Vampire Slayer Kristy Swanson doesn''t agree with Joss Whedon that revisiting the 1992 movie is a bad idea.\ \ In fact, the 40-year-old actress is touting for a role in Warner Brothers'' remake.\ \ "If they wanted me to be a part of it, I think that would be fantastic and that it would be a blast," she told Entertainment Weekly.\ \ Her enthusiam isn''t shared by Buffy creator Whedon, whose response to the remake announcement came via a sardonic written statement to E! Online, in which he called it "a sad, sad reflection on our times, when people must feed off the carcasses of beloved stories from their youths."\ \ But Swanson has no such reservations, adding: "There are die-hard Joss Whedon fans who absolutely love him to death, and rightly so; he''s a brilliant man, no doubt. I love everything Buffy. I don''t care who''s doing it."\ \ Swanson''s co-star Luke Perry has so far declined to give his reaction.
Beyoncé and Jay Z have more than 99 problems and only “divine intervention” can save the troubled marriage, a source close to the powerful couple has told The Post. While Jay Z seemingly is the one most at fault, he’s also the one doing all in his power to keep the couple together, even hiring marriage counselors who are believed to be traveling with the super duo on their tour, the source said. “They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing . . . This is a huge concert tour and they’ve already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front,” the source said. Despite the tens of millions the couple will pocket from the current tour, this will certainly be their last and the end of the tour could officially spell the end of the marriage, the source said. “There are no rings, if you haven’t noticed,” the source said, admitting that he thought things would get better after the birth of the couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. “For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family,” the source said. “But, after a while, Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey. They made the classic mistake of thinking a child would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire, and it didn’t.”
I just saw the episode where the woman won't leave Daddy's room because "he promised me marriage!" This is eventually thwarted by the woman's son hustling her away. Her son is a 45 year old complete dork, who seems absolutely TERRIFIED of Rose's bag of skimpy undies, fleeing in terror when she comes on to him. Are we supposed specifically to infer that he's gay?

Former friends Spike Lee and Michael Rapaport are now warring over gentrification in Brooklyn borough of New York City and the quality of films they pro due. Rapaport fired the latest verbal missile at Lee during a visit Tuesday to HuffPost Live. Rapaport, who is producing and directing his new film My Man is a Loser, denounced the filmmaker a “s— stain” who is playing the race card when he discusses gentrification in New York. Then, he went on to disparage Lee’s filmmaking career. “When’s the last Spike Lee film you saw?” Rapaport asked host Marc Lamont Hill. “Nobody goes to see them s—-.” Despite coming to talk about his new film, Rapaport instead appropriated the balance of his interview time addressing Lee, who during a May interview on HuffPost Live called Rapaport “stupid” and said he “doesn’t know what he’s f—— talking about.” Lee also discounted Rapaport’s talents as a director, to which Rapaport fired back Tuesday, “I’m going to see him sooner or later,” Rapaport said, which some took as a a threat. “I wanna see you say ‘you’re stupid and your movie sucks’ right to my face.” Lee, whose industry beefs are legendary and go way back to the time he slammed Morgan Freeman fiercely for his subservient role in Driving Miss Daisy, responded to Rapaport saying a month earlier that Spike Lee had no business talking about Brooklyn’s gentrification since Lee lives on the Upper East Side in the neighboring borough of Manhattan.

Does it all go back to him having acne as a teenager?
...when they forbade her from seeing her ne'er do well boyfriend? She just got a restraining order against him. MORRISTOWN, N.J. — Rachel Canning, the teenager who moved out of her parents' home and then sued them for support and college costs, has gotten a domestic violence temporary restraining order against her boyfriend — the man her parents had wanted her to stop seeing. Canning, who graduated from Morris Catholic High School this spring and is headed for Western New England University this fall on a $56,000 scholarship, accused Lucas Kitzmiller, 18, of choking her with his hands during a quarrel early this past Sunday morning, according to Canning's father, Sean Canning. The incident allegedly occurred after midnight Saturday into the early-morning hours Sunday. The alleged assault of Canning, 18, by Kitzmiller occurred on the street. She says that she fled in her vehicle — and that Kitzmiller tried to stop her — then she drove to Denville Police headquarters. She filed a domestic violence complaint against Kitzmiller and a temporary restraining order was issued by a municipal court judge based upon her allegations. Kitzmiller was not immediately available for comment. The pair are to appear Wednesday in Superior Court in Morristown for a hearing on whether the restraining order should be made final. Kitzmiller could agree to the restraints or a trial could be held where the order could be dismissed by the judge or Canning could seek its dismissal. Sean Canning said his daughter did not seek to file criminal charges against Kitzmiller, but the underlying basis of the restraining order is an alleged criminal act. Kitzmiller's relationship with Rachel Canning was one of the key areas of contention between her and her parents; they wanted her to break up with him, but she refused. She moved out of her parents' home to the residence of attorney John Inglesino, and in February his family and an attorney filed suit on her behalf requiring the Cannings to pay support and Rachel's upcoming college costs. The lawsuit attracted international attention but was withdrawn in March when Rachel Canning reconciled with her parents and returned home to Lincoln Park. Sean Canning said that since his daughter's return, the household has been peaceful and he and his wife had decided not to criticize Kitzmiller when Rachel continued to see him on an on-again, off-again basis. "She has repaired her relationship with us," Sean Canning said. "She went off the deep end in the past, but things are good now. We said to her 'Listen, you're an adult. You make your own choices.' " The actual domestic violence restraining order and complaint filed to receive them are considered confidential documents by the court.
She bullies people to get their damn hamburgers.

[italic]Researchers in the US studied 36 dogs and found that most were indifferent when their owners ignored them and read aloud from a children's pop-up book. But when the owners showered their attention on a stuffed dog – or even played with a bucket with a face painted on the side – the dogs' behaviour changed dramatically. Video footage showed that when owners petted the stuffed toy, which barked and wagged its tail for effect, their dogs growled more and sometimes snapped and forced their way between the toy and their owner. A quarter of the dogs snapped at the stuffed animal, while only one snapped at the book and the bucket.[/italic] LOL
I really enjoyed it. I like Marco Berger's films. Hes relatively new to films. All his movies have yearning and lust in them. It's hot, and they're usually small budget which leads them to really focus on the characters and not the scenery. "Hawaii" did take place on an estate though with just two leads. Oh, and there was cock in it!
Did you just see a poor woman accidentally fall from a rope swing? If you did you’re a victim of a predatory passive aggressive personality type. This is the best example of a PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE PREDATOR at work. Do NOT feel sorry for this woman! She knew EXACTLY what was going to happen. This is the way she controls people. By GUILTING them into feeling so sorry for her they then become compliant with her needs. As soon as she lands she falsely exclaims “I can’t feel my legs…wahwahwah.. HOLD MY HAND.” He wasn’t going to hold her hand any other way. This woman is no victim, she is a PREDATOR! Manipulating someone else’s emotions and hurting yourself to make someone else feel bad in order to control them is especially rotten. Its a stunt done in thousands of ways by millions of people. There are sooo few “accidents”. Often accidents are simply someones repurposed rage. For example your neighbor “accidentally” forgets to water your plants while you’re on vacation and they all die. It wasn’t an accident. The person was resentful that you burdened them with this chore AND that you went on a vacation and passive aggressively punishes you by letting something you care that you’ve put in their hands without their request die. This case is similar but even more twisted. This woman knows that there is a VERY strong chance this will not end well but she’s willing to take the risk because of the potential of an opportunity to manipulate other people through their guilt. She takes the jump, suffers very real pain, and although she may consciously feel regret she could not be happier because her, potentially subconscious, plan of passive aggressive control of others has them hooked! She should be pushed off a higher cliff by children. This “victim” is CONNIVING! She’s the ultimate predator, willing to risk physical pain to have her needs met. She’s no different then any other mega sociopath. You just thought you saw a tragic woman hurt herself and you felt bad and maybe laughed. If you did, she tricked you. In either of those reactions she wins. I wonder if this woman is a candidate for Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy? Im pretty sure this behavior qualifies as Maunchausen Syndrome but the BY PROXY version is so much more INSIDIOUS! She’s definitely willing to hurt herself to make you feel bad so she can control you. Im forced to wonder if she would hurt others in order for you to feel bad and thus be able to control you as well. See, and here you thought you saw one thing, and it turns out it was something quite different entirely. All you needed to be was curious enough to look beyond the surface.

I have no idea who Sam Smith is, but that song is tiresome and sounds like it's being sung by a black drag queen with a church choir as backup. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I can't get in my car and turn on the radio without this fucking awful, melodramatic torch song blaring. It's even played on rotation on the satellite top 100 streams. Apparently Sam Smith is a white guy, I just looked him up. Which makes this God-awful song even more irritating. MAKE IT STOPPPPP!
And equally harmful to a person´s psyche. Discuss.
There's a bit of a hullabaloo going on right now about Secretary of State John Kerry being forced to go through a security check and metal detector before meeting with the Egyptian president. It seems a little unprecedented but it made me wonder, since the U.S. President is such a huge target, do foreign heads of state, (not necessarily those of the U.K. and Australia), but say, those from Middle Eastern Countries or even Russia or Africa, go through any physical screening prior to being allowed into the White House's inner sanctum and next to the President? How do such things work? Also, when the President is abroad and is meeting with a dignitary of the host country, does the staff and those close to that head of state have to go through U.S. Secret Service screening? I would suspect they do, but it would also seem highly offensive.

The old thread was closed... and there's just not enough eye candy in this world, so this thread is here to fix that! No nudes, just totally gorgeous men:
The U.S. has really become a vile and ugly place. Observing what is happening with the immigrant children, people advocating violence against them...the frenzied hatred against Obama and his family and all Dems and liberals, for that matter...the police brutality against citizens (and animals...anyone been reading about how many pets have been shot by the cops in their own backyards lately?)...it just goes on and on. Sure, there are still a lot of decent people here, but it sure appears that the lunatics have succeeded in taking over the asylum. Have never seen it this bad, ever.
It's been seven months since Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete left The Talk, and now Remini is finally ready to spill the beans about their surprise exits. On Monday, Remini blamed co-host Sharon Osbourne, 59, for getting them axed from the CBS talk show. "Sharon thought me and Holly were 'ghetto'. . . we were not funny, awkward and didn't know ourselves," Remini, 41, tweeted. "She has the power that was given to her." (Remini was tweeting in response to a radio interview Osbourne had done with Howard Stern, 58.) Osbourne denied Remini's claims via Twitter Tuesday, saying: "In response to Leah Remini's continuous comments that I had her fired from The Talk, let me just go on the record to say I had absolutely nothing to do with her departure from the show and have no idea why she continues to take to Twitter to spread this false gossip." Leah knows that I have never been in the position to hire or fire anyone on the show," Osbourne added. "That being said, my only wish is that Leah would just stop all this negative, unprofessional and childish behavior. It's been seven months. . .it's time to move on. Leah is a very talented actress and I only wish her happiness and success." She concluded: "I know that better things are to come if she can just get beyond all this negativity." Remini didn't stop tweeting, though. On Wednesday, she argued that Osbourne "just wants publicity out of this" and said she has no intention of keeping quiet. "If someone wants me to stop, they should call a lawyer and tell them what I am NOT telling the truth about," Remini told her followers. "We can go from there."

Senator Tex Cruz (R-Texas) did not enjoy seeing his name pop up in last Sunday's episode of HBO's vampire series "True Blood." He responded to the reference in a Facebook message posted Tuesday. "Of all the places I never thought to be mentioned, HBO's True Blood vampire show would have to be near the top of the list. Sunday night, they aired a misogynist and profanity-ridden episode where Texas Republicans are murdered attending a 'Ted Cruz fundraiser,'" Cruz wrote. "True Blood" featured vampires preparing to attend a Cruz gala at the George W. Bush Presidential Library. Before the event, they dismissed the types of people who would be present. "You'll never get in. You're vampires. Security is going to be tight, and they only invite assholes," one of the characters says. "You don’t know us, sweetheart. We can be assholes," came the reply. After dressing up for the gala, a female character declares, "Oh my God! I am a Republi-cu**!" Cruz said the entire situation had confused him since he would have expected the film industry to depict vampires as conservatives instead of "hard-core leftists." "Well, I'm sorry to have lost the vampire vote, but am astonished (and amused) that HBO is suggesting that hard-core leftists are blood-sucking fiends," he wrote. HBO did not immediately return a request for comment about Cruz's remarks.
Ryan Murphy's "American Horror Story" series is known for pushing boundaries and scaring the hell out of viewers, and it looks like his latest installment is preparing to pack on the weird. FX CEO John Landgraf attended the TCAs this week and said fans of the show can expect a darker Season 4 than what they saw with "American Horror Story: Coven." “Some years it’s going to be big and bright and brash and campy the way 'Coven' is," Landgraf said. "Other years it’s going to be dark and brooding -- like 'Asylum' was. I guess I would put 'Freak Show' half-way in between the two. It’s got a little bit more humor and a little bit more camp, but its got a brooding period feel to it also." "Freak Show" is set to premiere in October and Murphy is bringing back stars Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson and Kathy Bates for the fourth go-around of the horror series. Taking place in Florida in the '50s, Landgraf promises the newest season has a very different look from what we've seen so far. "The characters are really distinctive, really original, some are really strange," Landgraf said, "but I think really compelling, I love what I’ve read so far.” Speaking of strange, if this set photo of Paulson playing conjoined twins Bette and Dot is anything to go by, we think anyone worried Murphy was losing his touch when it comes to terror should just relax. He's still got it.
Most of the time, litigation in federal court is pretty straightforward: Someone sues someone else; one side wins; the other side appeals. Done and done. Not so with the battle raging over Obamacare’s subsidies. In the wake of yesterday’s dueling court rulings, that fight – one with massive implications for the law’s future – has descended into an unusually complex legal chess match. The next move: Look for Obamacare’s challengers to run to the Supreme Court and ask it to hear the case now. The Obama administration, meanwhile, will be pressing the fight in a lower court and doing everything it can to stay out of the high court altogether. Obamacare’s future may depend on how willing the Supreme Court is to step in. * * * Yesterday’s rulings are about a key piece of the Affordable Care Act: the tax credits, or “subsidies,” the law provides to lower-income Americans who buy insurance through health exchanges. Those subsidies dramatically reduce the cost of insurance, making coverage possible for millions who otherwise couldn’t afford it. In New Jersey, for example, the average “sticker price” for a monthly premium is $465, or more than $5,000 per year – out of reach for those at the bottom of the income bracket. But most people who have signed up through Obamacare qualified for a subsidy – $317, on average – making the consumer’s cost just $148 a month. Without those subsidies, many new customers would not sign up. And without an influx of healthy new customers, the insurance market could face what health analysts call the “death spiral”: Only people who are already sick (and expensive to cover) would find health insurance to be a good deal and sign on, which would raise insurers’ average costs, which would lead to a big hike in premiums, which would push more healthy customers out of the market, and so on. That’s what makes yesterday’s rulings so important: If the law’s challengers prevail, subsidies will be unavailable in 36 states. The issue comes down to four words in the Affordable Care Act. When Congress drafted the statute’s tax-subsidy section, it wrote that insurance applicants are eligible for subsidies if they enroll through an exchange “established by the State.” But after the statute was enacted, 36 states refused to set up exchanges, so the federal government did it for them. Obamacare opponents have argued that in those 36 states, there is no exchange “established by the state” and thus those states’ residents can’t get subsidies. The administration has taken a different tack: In a ruling last year, the IRS concluded that federally-established exchanges stand in the shoes of state-established exchanges, and it made subsidies available nationwide. Obamacare opponents quickly challenged the IRS decision as unlawful – in direct conflict with what Congress wrote. That fight has been raging before a pair of federal appeals courts: the D.C. Circuit in Washington, D.C., and the Fourth Circuit in Richmond, Virginia. Yesterday, in a wild turn of events, both courts handed down their long-awaited rulings within hours. In the first ruling, a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit sided with the challengers and ruled that the government cannot provide subsidies in 36 states. Soon after, a three-judge panel of the Fourth Circuit came out the other way, siding with the IRS and ruling that, read in context, the statute authorizes subsidies nationwide. So what happens next? The government has already said what it will do: ask the full, 11-judge D.C. Circuit to rehear the case. The majority of those 11 judges were appointed by Democratic presidents, and so far, every judge to weigh in on the subsidies has voted along party lines. The administration thus has a decent chance of flipping the D.C. Circuit result. It is hoping, no doubt, that the case will end there. If both the D.C. Circuit and the Fourth Circuit end up siding with the government, and no court disagrees, then the best reason for Supreme Court review – a disagreement among the lower courts – disappears. The challengers, however, know that’s the government’s best play. That’s exactly why their next move is likely to run straight to the Supreme Court. They’ll appeal from the Fourth Circuit decision and ask the high court to take the case now and resolve the current split between the two appeals-court decisions. The government presumably will oppose that move, telling the Supreme Court to sit tight until the D.C. Circuit is finished. But the Supreme Court could decide to take the case now anyway. And if it does, watch out: The high court’s five conservatives may well be sympathetic to the challengers’ argument that the statute’s key words – “established by the State” – mean exactly what they say. Chief Justice Roberts, in particular, could adopt that position without contradicting what he said in the first blockbuster Obamacare litigation. The government’s best shot, in short, is to bar the door to the Supreme Court. Obamacare’s future hangs in the balance.
It's so awkward. They are not supposed to greet you unless you acknowledge them first- a privacy ethic. So there's that clumsy moment between when you see each other and when you decide how to react.

(ABC News) - A 5-year-old Massachusetts boy battling cancer said all he wants for his upcoming birthday is a box of birthday cards. Danny Nickerson, of Foxboro, Massachusetts, will turn six on July 25. He was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor this past October -- one of the most chemotherapy-resistant cancers. As a result, he has since stopped going to kindergarten. The boy gets lonely from time to time, and is always happy to get cards with his name written on them. “He can recognize his name now,” Carley Nickerson, Danny’s mother told ABC News. “When he saw his name on the package from magical fairies on Easter, he was so happy.” But the packages and cards stopped after Easter. “He had 33 radiations from November through December last year,” Nickerson said. “We are now getting chemo therapy every two weeks.” Doctors tell Nickerson that less than 10 percent of the children diagnosed with this type of cancer live longer than 18 months. “I don’t really believe in that. He is doing great,” Nickerson said. “Every day is a blessing for us,” So far, Danny has received about 40 letters. “I gave him to key to the P.O. box,” Nickerson said. “He was so excited when he opened it.” Nickerson said Danny loves Lego and Super Mario. “I wish Lego makes Super Mario toys,” Nickerson chuckled. “That would really make him happy.” Danny’s birthday is July 25. All cards can be mailed the Nickerson’s home addressed: Danny Nickerson, P.O. Box 212, Foxboro, MA, 02035.
People will bitch about my saying it, but the U.S. media is becoming dangerously controlled, influenced by and populated with Brits. From the NBC News president to news network talking heads to satirists to magazine, newspaper, blog editors and now presidents of major networks, able to influence coverage and public opinion. Sure, Aussies are there also, but it's Brits that are becoming a dominant force in fifth estate (U.S. media). No other country on Earth would allow such a strong positioning of Americans into their news media. Why isn't this ever talked or written about? It may seem harmless and, for now, it may be. But this is a risky thing to allow in the long run. The Brits are no doubt our friends and close cousins of American society, but in many ways, we're allowing our media to become compromised by outside influence.

Sexually, I mean? Do you ever feel weirded out or guilty about it? I broke up with a guy a couple of months ago, but man the memory of the sex we had is still prime jerk-off material (even if he did turn out to be a bit of a disrespectful immature jerk).
I'm not a lifetime follower of professional sports in the United States. But I have been a late bloomer with some interest for a little of MLB and a little of NFL. Who - whether it's players and/or coaches/managers/owners - are the homophobes? I ask because of the recent thread on Tony Dungy.
He became a childhood favourite to a generation of fans when he starred in Boy Meets World. But while Ben Savage has returned to the role of Cory Matthews in a spin off show, he is doing it with a very different looking profile. For the 33-year-old appears to have had a nose job if his pointy looking schnoz on Girl Meets World is any guide. It is certainly a much different look to the rounded conker his fans know and love from his early days on the show. A long time in the making, fans are looking forward to seeing grown up history teacher Cory and his chemistry with daughter Riley, who is played by Rowan Blanchard and is the main character on the new show. Explaining the concept, Ben said: 'While fans of the show I think a lot of Boy Meets World fans are sort of expecting the show to pick up where it left off. 'And for us, really, I don't want them to be disappointed, but this show, Girl Meets World, is for a new generation. It's not so much a continuation of Boy Meets World as it's a brand-new slate for a brand-new generation of kids. However he said he is hoping that the programme can be enjoyed by the whole family. He said: 'Some of the best emails and notes and messages and tweets I've gotten are from former Boy Meets World fans who tell me how much they're excited about watching the new show with their own children. 'It's really a nice feeling to know that they grew up with us, and now their kids are going to get to grow up with Girl Meets World. Disney have just released the first trailer promoting the show's summer debut, and it shows Ben and on-screen wife Danielle Fishel bringing up their own family in New York City.

A Florida couple were arrested after they had sex on a public beach Sunday, according to WTVT Channel 13. Several children were among the stunned onlookers. Jose Caballero, 39, and Elissa Alvarez, 20, were charged with lewd and lascivious behavior. A woman recorded the incident and turned the video over to Bradenton police. "I've lived here since 1978, and I go to the beaches, and I've never seen anything like this," she told the TV station. Caballero is a personal trainer who served several years in prison for cocaine trafficking, according to the New York Daily News. To read the full story, go to myfoxtampabay.com.

Frank Skinner is a popular English comedian, and has been doing a weekly radio show for a few years now (you can get it as a podcast). There are no guests or preordained topics, just a freeform chat with his 2 co-hosts, but it's one of the most consistently entertaining and funny podcasts I've found. The reason why I'm posting about it here is not so much Frank himself but rather one of the 2 sidekicks, Emily Dean; she's a fashion editor in her day job, and has a very Datalounge sensibility - her partly self-ironic snobbishness often reminds me of this place.
Let's say there were two candidates you had to vote for in an election One was an extreme right-wing Tea Party candidate The other was socialist democrat who proclaims he is a functioning addict. Drinks himself to a drunken stupor and does drugs regularly. Those are your only two options. Spoiling your ballot or not voting is NOT an option. You have to chose one of the two. Who would you vote for?
Major studios fail to show positive LGBT characters.
It had to happen. Can Eddie fake continuous love and affection for the cameras? Their every move is followed by the tabloids. Now celebrity couple LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian will let their everyday lives play out on TV with their own reality series. VH1 has ordered LeAnn & Eddie (working title), a six-episode half-hour series to premiere on VH1 in Fall 2013/Winter 2014. Scott and Deirdre Gurney’s Gurney Prods., which is behind monster unscripted hit Duck Dynasty, is producing. LeAnn & Eddie will chronicle how singer-actress Rimes and actor Cibrian navigate their careers while also co-parenting Eddie’s two sons. It also promises for the duo to poke fun at what it’s like to be a high-profile couple with more than a little misinformation out there about them. “We are really excited to be working together on a unique show that will give you a glimpse into who we really are or better yet who we’re really not,” Rimes and Cibrian said. “We’re thrilled to partner with VH1 and The Gurneys to put our spin on a project full of love, humor and music.” Rimes and Cibrian will executive produce the series through Country Cuban Productions, along with the Gurneys, John Ferriter for Octagon Entertainment and Scotty Abrams for Maniac Filmworks and Music. “This is going to be a really fun show in which we hope to reveal what their lives are really like – from the normalcy of their home life, to what drives them artistically, to the chaos of their celebrity life,” said Tom Calderone, President of VH1.

is turning into the LMN, since Lifetime is abandoning that format As young girls, we wished upon a star that someday a prince – preferably one of TV royalty – would sweep us off our feet and we’d live happily ever after. But then we grew up and learned the hard way that heartthrobs can be real heartbreakers. In Investigation Discovery’s (ID) original new series HEARTBREAKERS, hunky Hollywood actors from the ‘80s and ‘90s reunite on screen to portray real-life dreamboats who turned into total nightmares. Directed and written in a sensational, Aaron Spelling-esque style reminiscent of classic primetime soaps, HEARTBREAKERS takes true stories ripped from the headlines to show what really happens when the perfect catch turns out to be the perfect criminal. Featuring Kevin Sorbo, Jack Wagner, Judd Nelson, Rob Estes, Tracey Gold, Nicole Eggert, Jamie Luner, Christopher Knight, and Antonio Sabato, Jr., HEARTBREAKERS makes its world premiere debut on ID on Wednesday, August 13 at 10/9c. “Our viewers simply cannot get enough true stories of love gone wrong,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, Destination America, American Heroes Channel and Discovery Fit & Health. “With HEARTBREAKERS, ID has hit on a unique hybrid that marries those true stories our viewers crave with all the romance and drama that they love in their favorite primetime soaps, featuring an amazing line-up of television and movie legends in the most over the top, deliciously devilish roles they have ever played.” HEARTBREAKERS is rooted in real stories that are already truly unbelievable on their own. The series also features interviews and behind-the-scenes commentary with the actual people involved, layering in context and additional information about each case. And not to disappoint, HEARTBREAKERS provides a nod to the actors’ previous lives in the primetime soap world, dropping little golden surprises that are sure to appeal to the fan’s sense of nostalgia: anyone for The Brady Bunch’s pork chops and apple sauce HEARTBREAKERS premieres on Wednesday, August 13 at 10/9c.

I live across the street from an apartment building. About an hour ago, some guy was arrested and dragged out of the building. Turns out he's the boyfriend of a tenant, and he was there to beat up one of her neighbours. He wanted to beat the woman up because she called the cops on his girlfriend. Apparently the GF was walking around in the parking lot around 11AM completely nude. It was a hot and sunny day, and she wanted to enjoy the sun, or so she explained. When the neighbour called the cops on her, she put up a fight. She was supposedly on meth during the altercation with the cops, and the nude walkabout. I was at work, so I missed the nudie show, but I got the entire BF arrest. I really hate this neighbourhood.
This list seems rather thin. What would you add?
and then interviews Leonard Maltin!!!!!! so on point!!!!!

I am NOT "cisgendered." I reject that label. Why? From what I've read, "cisgendered" is a label that began in academic discourse as a way of describing people who weren't trans. But the meaning of it was akin to what we might call "normatively gendered." That means your gender identity is within a limited range of what society considers to be acceptably "normal." Normative is a word of negation and resistance. It rejects the boundaries delineated as "normal" by illustrating their discursive construction, i.e. not essential. However, while "cisgendered" operates within a broader language of gender as a means of description, it is also prescriptive and limiting. The reason I place it in quotations is because it sets up a binary that is antithetical to the purpose for which it is employed in popular discourse. If gender isn't binary, if it is fluid and can transgress boundaries, than a binary between cisgender and transgender cannot exist. If it does, then we must delineate what "real" transgender or "true" transgender means, and who is allowed to inhabit it. If "cisgendered" means your gender identity matches the social construct attached to the sex you were assigned at birth, than there cannot be a male gender identity that acts outside those normative social boundaries. And if you say there is variation on gender identity, but "cis-" just means you were born with a penis and identify and live as a man, than you negate the many variations on what it means to "be a man" or even to "live as a man." You are imposing your concept of those things onto me, enforcing a binary that is paradoxical. Moreover, you are denying the gender fluidity of those who have a penis and identify as male, but prefer women's underwear or wear makeup or transgress norms in innumerable other ways. Adding more labels -- like "cisgendered male transvestite" -- in order to justify your act of aggression defeats the purpose of simplifying things with words like "cisgendered." What is perhaps most disturbing in being called "cisgendered," is that it imposes an identity on me. Doing so invalidates my complicated experience of gender. Don't tell me that I am somehow normatively gendered for my body when my life experience has led me through periods of deep confusion about my gender identity and living as gender queer. How is living gender queer normative? How does that reconcile with the sex and gender roles society associates with having a penis? Moreover, you don't get to make a reductive statement about my gender identity or how I embody my gender while trying to argue for recognition of the diversity of other peoples' embodied genders. If you are going to argue for a less simplistic reading of others' embodied genders, than you have to do so with mine too. That includes recognizing that as a queer person, I'm automatically not inhabiting the normative roles society has constructed for those with a penis. My behavior, and sexual and romantic attachments aren't normative for "men." My intuitiveness isn't normative. My choices of profession haven't been normative. My mode of speech isn't normative.

Could life imitate art yet again, or -- more specifically -- could a title come true? Deadline Hollywood reports HBO is in talks with Lisa Kudrow and director Michael Patrick King to bring "The Comeback" back, the duo's comedy from 2005 that's become a cult classic. Though it only lasted one, 13-episode season, "The Comeback" earned respect from most critics and has developed quite the following since it went off the air. Recent successful resurrections have given new life to many TV shows with rumors constantly swirling of comebacks, "Arrested Develpment" being the most notable example. This makes the news of the Kudrow comedy's possible return even more apt. "The Comeback" was very much ahead of its time, being a single camera reality show spoof. Relevancy shouldn't be an issue, even almost a decade after its original airing. Valerie Cherish still has plenty to teach us. On March 19, Kudrow retweeted a Slate story suggesting "The Comeback" deserves another season. It even went so far as to suggest HBO should make it available on the company's streaming service, HBOgo.

He narrowly escaped a DUI charge last October, and now The Fosters star Jake T. Austin is facing a new set of legal troubles. The 19-year-old former Disney star has been charged with one count of misdemeanor hit and run following a four-car crash last November in Sherman Oaks, California, TMZ reports. According to the website, Jake's car - a 2010 Audi with New York number plates - reportedly drove into three parked cars around 3am, causing 'major damage' to the vehicles. The official incident report, obtained by TMZ, allegedly indicates the Audi is registered to the actor, whose real name is Jake Szymanski. Witnesses said that after the car crash, a passenger in the vehicle threw a bottle of vodka at a nearby building. Eyewitnesses also said they saw the people inside the car call a service to pick them up while another eyewitness said one of the passengers matched Jake's description. He faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted and a possible probation violation for his DUI.
The 16 year old plays Alex on the show. Apparently the producers are meeting right now to determine how the show can deal with the situation.

BLIND ITEM: Which celebrity reporter has naked pictures and kinky profile on sex site? Which very well-known celebrity reporter who has turned himself into a bit of a star, has a very kinky profile and naked pictures on a gay hookup site. NAUGHTY BUT NICE ROB saw the images – our eyes are burning, showing him totally naked and very excited. It was shockingly thick and around 9 inches. His profile reveals he likes kinky group sex and ‘anything goes.’ He adds that he doesn’t smoke but does do drugs. Additionally, he writes that he is on the “HIV-preventing miracle drug” PrEP, so he doesn’t practice safe sex! GUESS WHO….TRUST ME, YOU KNOW HIM!
The Patsy Kensit thread has me curious about other UK starts of TV, film or music that are fairly well known in the UK, but are unknown in the States. I know that many of the people on the TV shows that *have* reached the US (e.g. Downtown Abbey, Call The Midwife) have been recognizable performers in the UK. Who would you put on that list? And why are they famous - or what should we Americans look for, or pay attention to, when it comes to their work?

Betty White once said of playing Sue Ann Nivens, "Of course, I loved Sue Ann. She was so rotten. You can’t get much more rotten than the neighborhood nymphomaniac." It is true that most of the more promiscuous women I've known in my life have been hard types: cynical, competitive, and sometimes downright mean (particularly toward other women). Is the same thing true for gay men?
"Gai ilings" don't shreeeeee eeeeeeee eeeeeeee eeeeeek! you pathetic tired old hissing troll. This generation of young gay men is the most urbane cosmopolitan educated and fabulous group of gay men ever. Stop your jealous attempts at trying to paint us as effemminate and lacking testosterone. We are men, too. We do everything men do. We are a generation of proud gay men, and because you can't handle the fact that you are not 19 anymore you should not act out your pathetic aging angst by attacking and violating a generation of those who come after you, if indeed you do believe that your Judy Garland era won rights HAVE paved the way for us, start supporting us and stop trying to wound us with your hateful slurrr of shreeeeeee eeeeeee eeeeeee eeeeeeeek
Did he handle it well?
ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 07/21 **#11** This actor used to be a comedian. He is B list now. He has been on a hit network show for what seems like forever. The past year or so though his life has gone downhill really quickly. Over the weekend our actor was at a hospital in NYC with a high risk wristband. There he was in clothes that were ripped and worn. He was looking as if he had not showered in weeks. He asked a passerby for help using a pay phone and couldn't figure it out and told the person he was having mental episodes and suicidal thoughts which is why he had the wristband. He said that he wanted to go home and to leave the hospital. He had no one with him, but was very kind to the person who helped him with the payphone. It was just a very sad sight to see for a guy whose character has meant so much for so long. Richard Belzer "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"

If she had not been into penised persyns, she would have been a Mitchfest Goddess. RIP. Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart, who has “embarked upon her silver ship to the Summerlands” aged 65, was a self-styled witch and High Priestess of the Church of All Worlds credited with coining the term “polyamory”, the practice of having a romantic relationship with more than one person, which has now entered the Oxford English Dictionary. With her husband, Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, she dedicated her life to studying the “Dark Arts”, helping him to run the world’s only registered wizard academy, the Grey School of Wizardry, in Sonoma County, California, where novices, split into four houses — Winds, Undines, Gnomes and Salamander — can learn such skills as alchemy, horse whispering, wand-making, spell-casting and advanced “mathemagics”. The pair first met in 1973 at a Gnostic Aquarian Festival in Minneapolis, where Oberon (then plain Tim Zell) was a keynote speaker on “Theagenesis”. They were married the following year in a pagan “handfasting” ceremony performed by Archdruid Isaac Bonewits and High Priestess Carolyn Clark. Shortly afterwards they won first prize in the “most primal” category at a fancy dress competition held at a Sci-Fi festival in Washington, DC. They lived first in St Louis, where Morning Glory studied Wicca, eclectic shamanism and Goddess history, and helped to produce and edit the neopagan magazine Green Egg. She was ordained a priestess in the Church of All Worlds, which her husband had founded in 1962. The Zells (they added “Ravenheart” later on) spent much of their early life together on the move, travelling around in a converted school bus which they named “The Scarlet Succubus”, before moving to a hippie commune in Northern California. They lived there for eight years, among other things raising “unicorns” by carrying out minor surgery on the horn buds of goats — a procedure which they attempted to patent. (more at link)
He seems to be quite forgotten, and doesn't get any credit for being one of the first gay American actors to come out - and as a former Disney star, no less. The fact that his sexuality was arguably one of the reasons why he was fired would only add to his potential gay icon status. Yet while, say, George Takei (who came out very late in life) is ubiquitious, Kirk has an extremely low profile. Do you think it's because his sexual history is too controversial, so today's PC gays would rather pretend he doesn't exist (or is it just a matter of personality)?
Looking at some of his movies, both animated and live-action makes me think so. There's no shortage of beefcake and gay-coded moments, and heterosexuality is depicted in the most chaste manner possible. Hell, "Someday My Prince Will Come" is a gay man's fantasy in song.

President Barack Obama says he supports statehood for the nation's capital. Obama was asked Monday about the prospect of the District of Columbia becoming the 51st state during a town hall at a city school. The president said, "I'm for it," adding that he has been "for quite some time." Obama added that: "The politics of it end up being difficult to get through Congress, but I think it's absolutely the right thing to do." Obama has previously spoken in favor of giving the District voting representation in Congress, and the White House has consistently supported giving the local government full control of the city's budget and laws. Following his re-election in 2012, Obama added District license plates with the phrase "Taxation Without Representation" to his official vehicles.

"Sometimes, all you can do is rely on your faith in God to guide you. That's what Roeland Park City Council member Marek Gliniecki did last night, when the long-debated ordinance to add sexual orientation and gender identity to the group of classes protected by the Kansas municipality's anti-discrimination law at last saw a council vote. From the Prairie Village Post: In an emotional statement, Gliniecki quoted into the record excerpts from a church document related to legislative proposals on the “non-discrimination of homosexual persons.” That document read in part that “the intrinsic dignity of each person must always be respected in word, in action and in law.” So he voted to respect the intrinsic dignity of gay persons, right? WRONG. It turns out that Gliniecki's Catholic sky god actually wanted him to oppose the ordinance that would respect the intrinsic dignity of gay persons. There were other council members who felt the same way: Mel Croston, Michael Rhodes and Sheri McNeil. Another council member, Becky Fast, did not turn up to cast a vote. In Roeland Park, there are eight council members. Mayor Joel Marquardt votes in the event of a tie. But since Fast didn't show, the four votes were all that the opposition needed to beat the ordinance-supporting votes, cast by Jennifer Gunby, Megan England and Teresa Kelly. Ordinance defeated, 4-3. At its core, the ordinance was asking a simple question of the council: Do you believe that the LGBT community deserves the same rights as everybody else in this country? If so, vote for the ordinance. If not, vote against it. But it turned out to not be so simple. The council spent four months giving air time to religious people concerned that its passage would violate their First Amendment rights, despite the fact that the voted-on version included an exemption for religious organizations. In the end, the vague concerns of religious bigots were deemed more important than protecting an entire class of people from discrimination. Ironically, the vote fell on the same day that President Obama signed into law an executive order protecting all federal employees from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity — an order that does not include exemptions for religious entities. "We're on the right side of history," Obama said. " The contact information links for the ones who voted against this ore in the original story linked here. Tell them what you think.
The episode is called "Perky's Visit". Just re-watched it on Logo TV. Julia and Suzanne's mother visits for Thanksgiving and Anthony is suspected of murder (subsequently exonerated; the gay partner did it instead. Ugh). How must Meschach Taylor have felt to act in that episode? I guess Linda Bloodworth-Thomason had good intentions, but it just comes off as "let's all blame the ex-con n***er for the murder since who else could have done it?". Ugh, just ugh. Just really offensive. I'm just queasy now.

“Maleficent” will cross $600 million at the global box office Wednesday, becoming the fourth film of the year to hit that mark. The Walt Disney Studios release is now in its fifth week of release, and has made $205 million domestically and $400 million internationally, making it the biggest live-action hit of Angelina Jolie’s career. Other films that have crossed the $600 million barrier in 2014 include “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ and “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” “Maleficent” is the 20th Disney film to pass $600 million globally. The re-imagining of “Sleeping Beauty” is out in most major foreign markets, including China where it has grossed roughly $40 million. It opens this weekend in Japan, which marks its final international engagement.

His GF/handler was about 45 and peroxide blonde.\ \ Lou Reed is so aloof and rude. Just horrid.\ \ Rolling Stones were the second-nicest band I have ever met. Down to earth and polite and took time to sign autographs and give away free booze from their backstage suite!\ \ Followed closely by BON JOVI. Lame but they were probably the nicest band I have ever met. Genuine as hell.
New series about a ship in a world where an epidemic has swept the world killing almost everyone. Anyone going to watch it?
Not necessarily the most fabulous, or the best-designed, but iconic - pretty much instantly recognizable by anyone as being associated with the film and with a particular cultural moment. In fact, you just describe it and people know what you're talking about (but pictures are appreciated). I'll start: - Audrey Hepburn's little black dress in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" - Cinderella's ballgown in Disney's "Cinderella" - Marilyn Monroe's white "subway" dress in "The Seven Year Itch" - Julia Roberts' red dress and ruby heart necklace in "Pretty Woman" - And a more cultish film, but Cher's / Alicia Silverstone's yellow plaid outfit in "Clueless" - this one's getting renewed attention because of Iggy Azalea's video for "Fancy".

He is 35,unmarried, rarely attends public events with a girl on his arm, no hint of a girlfriend. If he is gay coming out just might help his career at this point. I also think he is very handsome.
I picked up Margo Howard's 1980s biography of her mother, Ann Landers (Eppie Lederer), at a library sale. Some fun stuff in there: - Margo writes that her aunt Popo (who became the competing advice columnist Dear Abby) was oddly competitive with Margo when she was a child. Apparently Popo didn't like to be displaced in Eppie's attentions. - The famous Ann/Abby feud began after Eppie had been doing the Ann Landers column for several months and it became a hit in newspaper syndication. Popo went to the San Francisco Chronicle and offered herself as an Ann Landers substitute, and soon SHE was syndicated (most U.S. cities had two papers then, so she became a formidable competitor to Ann Landers). They didn't speak for years. - When Ann was scheduled to do a TV panel on "Deep Throat," she knew she was against it but didn't know what the title meant or what the movie was about. Margo had to explain it to her mother. - Several women had written the "Ann Landers" column and the paper didn't want to attach any one person to it publicly, but Eppie fought that, appearing on "What's My Line?" as Ann Landers. Becoming the brand in public made her very rich -- and indispensible; the paper couldn't fire her and hire another "Ann." - Both Ann and Abby's daughters grew up to get in the advice business. Margo wrote as "Dear Prudence" and later "Dear Margo," while Abby's daughter Jeanne started co-writing the Dear Abby column very early and eventually took it over completely. While Ann and Abby eventually reconciled, the cousins do not sound close. It's not super-gossipy, but it's light and funny.

I subscribed to this magazine about a year ago because I'd always heard it was the world's best general interest magazine -- but the never bothered to read any of the issues. As close to 30, then 40, then 50 issues piled up next to my living room couch, I started feeling guilty and terrible. Then I finally found the article -- online, natch -- that hooked me: A summary account of LBJ's ascension to the presidency following JFK's assassination. A much more fascinating story than you would expect, and a genuinely thrilling read. Now I'm grateful for all these back issues. I've been going through them and earmarking potentially interesting stories. On Sunday I will wake up and stay in bed until 2PM reading as much of them as I can before I am forced to get up. Hopefully it will rain that day, wouldn't that be perfect? Anyone have any great New Yorker articles they can recommend? I have access to their online archives.

For some agents, Snowden says, the racy images were one of the "fringe benefits of surveillance positions" Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency contractor turned whistle-blower, claims that “incredibly weak” oversight of U.S. surveillance programs enabled military personnel to obtain sexually explicit photos of people under surveillance and to sometimes share them with others. In an interview with the Guardian, Snowden talked about the impact of poor auditing systems within the NSA. He claimed many people sifting through monitored communications were 18 to 22 years old and suddenly put in a position of extraordinary responsibility that was sometimes abused. “In the course of their daily work they stumble across something that is completely unrelated to their work, for example an intimate nude photo of someone in a sexually compromising situation but they’re extremely attractive,” said Snowden. “So what do they do? They turn around in their chair and they show a co-worker. And their co-worker says: ‘Oh, hey, that’s great. Send that to Bill down the way,’” he said. Snowden, who lives in Moscow after being granted temporary asylum last year, added that this information is never reported and nobody knows about it because of inadequate oversight. He said the interception of intimate images was “routine enough” and described it as “sort of the fringe benefits of surveillance positions.” He added, “The mere seizure of that communication by itself was an abuse. The fact that your private images, records of your private lives, records of your intimate moments have been taken from your private communication stream, from the intended recipient, and given to the government without any specific authorization, without any specific need, is itself a violation of your rights.” NSA spokeswoman Vaneé Vines gave a comment to the New York Times on the allegations. The Times paraphrased her as saying that “the agency had zero tolerance for willful violations of authority or professional standards, and that it would respond as appropriate to any credible allegations of misconduct.”
Just you watch..
Huffington Post is showing photos of the actual crash site with at least one very graphic photo of the dead. It amazes me at how fast this stuff gets around the world. I'm also surprised at U.S. media increasingly showing these images, particularly so soon. What are your thoughts?

I am loving Last Tango in Halifax with Derek Jacoby! Even though the plotting is rather simplistic, the casting and acting is superb.

"America is full of tales waiting to be told. There are beautiful stories hiding in small towns and big cities, on suburban streets and rural roads. Great wisdom lives in the well-worked hands of aging craftspeople and in the eager words of young artisans. Our very history is whispered into the materials they use to make exquisite goods according to timeless standards of quality and care. That is the tradition we aim to preserve. How wonderful it is to discover something that has been cast aside, to pick it up and restore it to its original beauty. Maybe it’s sentimental of us, but we hold fast to memories and moments, to relics from bygone eras. Our goal is to support the America we’ve always known, and the one we haven’t yet met. We hope to achieve this in small but meaningful ways, through the stories we tell, the treasures we share and our genuine desire to give back to those with fewer opportunities but just as much heart and soul as anyone else. We believe that nurturing a better tomorrow upholds the yesterday we cherish, for all of us. [bold]Sometimes we walk proudly. Other times we stumble gracelessly. Yet we take each step with a generous measure of never-ending curiosity and wonder. We remain in awe of the folks and folkways existing around us. We want to learn about them, embrace them… preserve them.[/bold] PRESERVE is all of us, together, championing the goods, makers and legends that instill meaning inside the moments of our lives. The curios that cozy our homes, the threads that define our silhouettes, the foods that leave our bellies happy, the projects that mean everything to us—we want to share all of this with you; we know we have so much to learn from you. In our ongoing quest for knowledge, these are our PRESERVE passions…" - Blake Lively

It's a vile, nasty slur. Just because a particular genre of lesbian and effeminate young gays want to use it doesn't mean the entire gay population want to be referred to as "queer". Very few black people walk around calling themselves "n*gger" nor would the media or anybody else pick up on it. In the last week alone I've noticed two straight Facebook people refer to gays and lesbians as "queer", it's like the naughty word they're getting away with saying while hiding behind a p/c acceptance of it. It's NOT empowering. How many gay men and women (and even transgendered people) do you think died or lost eyes and limbs while being called "queer" as they were being attacked or beaten to death? How many of us cringed and began to sweat as we heard our fathers or friends say it when we were growing up, terrified it would be hurled at us, which it eventually was, at least a few times? You're not making yourselves or us 'empowered' and you're not 'taking it back' from anything. You're perpetuating a nasty stereotype. We are not queer/odd/different/bizarre. Please stop allowing people to use this as a label without calling them out on it.

He looked fabulous even up until the 80s and Murphy's Romance because he was such a handsome, handsome man--great jaw, great face, and a great athletic body. But he looked so terrible thereafter. What happened? It's not just aging because some men still look good even beyond sixty (like Michael Caine and Harrison ford). Did he smoke, or was it alcohol, or too much time in the sun?
I love the new Acura Gulliver's Travels commercial. The way Gulliver whines about wanting to go home and then flexes his toes is so sexy. The Acura Chariot literally made him curl his toes. The giant dirty flip flop at the end is awesome too. They're going to turn this into a series of commercials. They already made a sequel. Let's hope Gulliver and his flip flops become the new Flo.
Have any of you retired and moved to another county to finish out your life? What country did you move to, and what is it like?

Please indulge me in this pointless bitchery but it's something I thought of over the weekend. We were in New England at a big farmer's market. The quiet hum of the crowd, the birds chirping... it was really nice except, for the two guitar players. One was the cliche' white guy playing "blues" with the stereotypical growling voice and wincing face.. The other was just your garden variety guitar guy doing his own version of a Dave Matthews song. The music and the players themselves are just fine and sometimes can be lovely, but what is it about a lot of these folks who just assume everyone wants to hear their picking and screeching at everything, as if it's a real treat for 100% of the people, 100% of the time? It would be awesome sometime to just enjoy the sounds around you, especially when you're outside. There's a lot to be said for taking in the organic sites and sounds of people and their activity and the humming of a market crowd or a park and such. But it seems like at every outdoor venue, increasingly there are more and more guitar players, sometimes only a few yard apart. It's great if you want to entertain the crowd but it isn't always about YOU being on stage someplace or collecting money from people because you happen to be playing a favorite song. Is this unreasonable? Should there sometimes be public spaces where musical performances (as well as loud radios, violin players et all.) be encouraged not to take place?
You guys don''t know what you''re missing. My cooter got punished last night. It''s almost 10 and it feels like his cock is still pounding my hole.

Mayor Rob Ford is more popular with black Torontonians than the first black president is with black Americans, Councillor Doug Ford said with sincerity on Monday. “I understand — just had a call saying the black community will not be supporting Rob Ford. That is the furthest from the truth. He’s going to have more votes in the black community than President Obama,” Doug Ford said in a call to Newstalk 1010’s Humble and Fred show. “You know that, everyone else knows that.” Nobody else actually knows that. Exit polls suggest Obama got 95 per cent of black votes in the 2008 election, 93 per cent in 2012 — more than 15 million people each time. A total of 383,501 people of all races voted for Rob Ford in 2010. If only 1) Rob Ford was American 2) He instead of Romney ran against Obama he could have beaten Obama for the Presidency!
While you can thankfully find real gay characters on television, trying to find them in the movies is still basically impossible. Of the 102 releases from the big studios in 2013, only 7(!!) had a gay character who had any tie to the plot. 7 out of 102 movies released.

Who was your favorite English songbird and why?
Danny Aiello had never heard of Madonna before he was asked to play her father in the songstress's "Papa Don't Preach" video. So why did he do it? He was persuaded to be part of the mid-80s project by his daughter, who now can't stand the diva. "You know, that came about in a very strange way," Danny explains. "I had no idea who [Madonna] was, so I said to [daughter] Stacey in passing, 'They want me to do this music video with this girl named Madonna.'She said, 'Dad, Dad, you have to.' I went back and said I'll do it if my daughter is permitted on the set taking pictures with Madonna. ... Madonna sort of backed up and told her representative that I don't do that. My daughter has hated her ever since. ... I'm a movie actor doing this piece of crap!" Now Danny is making music himself -- jazz, but not of the traditional variety. He says he's an actor who interprets lyrics rather than calling himself a singer. "[My album] was dedicated to my son. Unfortunately, I lost [him] a year ago in May. He was a very special young man," Danny tells me. "It was pancreatic cancer. I have elected to do PSAs [public service announcements], and they have been so sensational. ... It's just devastating." To catch my entire interview, check out "Naughty But With Rob" on HDNet Thursdays at 8 p.m.

Believe it or not, people with this affliction, at their very core, are the inverse of the narcissist. People with BPD start out 'too sensitive', too empathetic. People with borderline personality disorder empathize to the point of pain. When the highly sensitive person grows up in a very non-validating and/or abusive environment, with a history of trauma, BPD can manifest. In order for borderline personality to develop, an invalidating environment with and a highly sensitive person MUST BE present. What is going on in a Borderline Personality Disorder sufferer's mind and how they are acting can be two entirely different things. To the sufferer, BPD is about deep feelings, feelings often too difficult to express, feelings that are something along the lines of this : If others really get to know me, they will find me rejectable and will not be able to love me; and they will leave me; I need to have complete control of my feelings otherwise things go completely wrong; I have to adapt my needs to other people's wishes, otherwise they will leave me or attack me; I am an evil person and I need to be punished for it; Other people are evil and abuse you; If someone fails to keep a promise, that person can no longer be trusted; If I trust someone, I run a great risk of getting hurt or disappointed; If you comply with someone's request, you run the risk of losing yourself; If you refuse someone's request, you run the risk of losing that person; I will always be alone; I can't manage by myself, I need someone I can fall back on; There is no one who really cares about me, who will be available to help me, and whom I can fall back on; I don't really know what I want; I will never get what I want; I'm powerless and vulnerable and I can't protect myself;. I have no control of myself; I can't discipline myself; My feelings and opinions are unfounded; Other people are not willing or helpful. To the family members, BPD behavior is often very frustrating can feel unfair and punitive - something like this: You have been viewed as overly good and then overly bad; You have been the focus of unprovoked anger or hurtful actions, alternating with periods when the family member acts perfectly normal and very loving; Things that you have said or done have been twisted and used against you; You are accused of things you never did or said? You often find yourself defending and justifying your intentions; You find yourself concealing what you think or feel because you are not heard; You feel manipulated, controlled, and sometimes lied to.

On Monday, during a luncheon for East Coast voters, Liza Minnelli made an unexpected, rousing endorsement of the film. "I have nothing to do with this film except that I am a fan of how it was done, of the insight and the way they played these characters. And the fact that you were watching something that wasn't necessarily comfortable but you could not stop watching. It drew you in, whether you wanted it to or not, and that's magic. That's magic. I mean, the last one [that did that for me] was On the Waterfront! You, crazy Matthew, losing all of that weight -- it's one thing to lose all of that weight and to look like that -- that's harrowing enough -- but then to run like you did, with a body like that? And Jared, I mean, everything that you did -- all of the placements, every single second -- I felt wonderful for you, proud of you and sorry for you all at the same time, which I think one only feels for your friends. And Jennifer [Garner] was great -- she was just f---ing great! I don't know what else to say. I haven't seen a movie like that in so long, and I'm so proud to be able to tell everybody." The Hollywood Reporter reports that the remarks came before lunch was served, and she ended with an offer of her own for the film's star, Matthew McConaughey: "And honey, if you don't win the Academy Award, I'm giving you mine!"
See link below! Too bad they didn't make the movie.
For years he was the meanest film and (especially) theater critic in New York, obsessing in his reviews about how physically unattractive actors were (especially Liza Minnelli, Barbra Streisand, and Wallace Shawn).

Has anyone else noticed this lately? I'm a bit of a commercial hound and love critiquing and studying advertisements and this trend makes me curious. In so many television ads, from cable companies to drug makers to appliance manufacturers: the home is often a gauzy white, with random light blue accents. The very white 'modern' by unoffending kitchen with a blue vase in the distance, a matching napkin folded on a table... or a living room, same white, with blue furniture, light blue walls, all of it slightly out of focus. Are these colors supposed to be appealing to the eye or are we somehow supposed to block them out while our attention is more focused on actor?

Have the colors in women's clothing always been this limited? I just finished a convention, and it seemed that every woman was wearing some combination of four colors- aqua, lime green, yellow, and salmon pink. It was like a chorus from a musical comedy circa 1940.
.. and other dissatisfied fans. Haha, after being burned by all the queer baiting in Supernatural I'm enjoying this: [bold]The CW's attempt to engage 'Supernatural' fans on Twitter backfired[/bold] It might be summer, but the CW, the network responsible for some of the biggest fandoms around, including Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries, isn't taking a break. In fact, this week on Twitter, CW executives, or at least the people who run their social media accounts, have been getting thoroughly schooled in the ways of fandom and social media—and the dangers of inviting fans to talk back. On Tuesday, the network launched a series of Twitter hashtags for various shows, inviting fans to submit questions to be answered by the casts and crews at San Diego Comic Con. After a deluge of responses, the network eventually deleted all but two of the open requests: #AskTheFlash and #AskArrow. Among the hashtags whose official announcements were deleted are #AskTVD, #AskTheOriginals, and #AskSupernatural. Particularly in the case of Supernatural, the CW's ploy backfired; thousands of fans who were angry and upset with the network deluged the #AskSupernatural hashtag for days with snark, challenges, and critical questions, which seemed to far outnumber more innocent questions about the show's narrative. So many fans joined in that #AskSupernatural trended worldwide on Tuesday and then again on Wednesday, and shows no sign of stopping today. Numerous fans compared it to the equally ill-fated #AskRobinThicke. The vast majority of SPN fans joined in to criticize the show's oft-noted ongoing issues: cyclical plots, problematic tropes, and above all the sustained refusal to give Dean and Castiel, or "Destiel," an explicitly acknowledged romance. ... #AskSupernatural [italic]How do you write two characters in classic romantic tropes and then declare NO HOMO?[/italic] #AskSupernatural [italic]There has been 3 bestiality references in supernatural that I've managed to catch.

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s last wish was that his kids wouldn’t grow up to be spoiled brats. The Oscar winner, who died of a drug overdose in February at age 46, repeatedly rejected his accountant’s suggestion that he set aside money for his son and two daughters, because he “did not want his children to be considered ‘trust fund’ kids,” court documents reveal. Attorney James Cahill Jr. — appointed by a court to protect the interests of Hoffman’s children, Cooper, 10, Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5, in his estate proceeding — recently interviewed the actor’s accountant, David Friedman. Friedman “recalled conversations with [Hoffman] in the year before his demise where the topic of a trust was raised for the kids and summarily rejected by him,” Cahill says in the Manhattan Surrogate’s Court filing. Instead, Hoffman wanted his estimated $35 million fortune to go directly to his longtime girlfriend, Mimi O’Donnell, the kids’ mother. Hoffman said he believed she would “take care of the children,” Friedman recalled, according to the filing. “Friedman also advised that he observed Hoffman treating his partner/girlfriend . . . in the same manner as if she were a spouse,” Cahill reported in the July 18 filing. Hoffman told the accountant he “simply did not believe in marriage.” O’Donnell, a costume designer, had “substantial” joint bank accounts with Hoffman, whom she met in 1999 working on a play at the Off-Broadway Labyrinth Theater Company. “The size and nature of the jointly held assets support the position that [Hoffman] regarded [O’Donnell] as the natural object of his bounty,” Cahill says in court papers. O’Donnell had reportedly kicked Hoffman out of their $4.2 million Jane Street apartment before he died because of his drug addiction. But Cahill said that because there is nothing suspicious about the actor’s will, it should be approved by the court. Hoffman’s other concern was where his kids would be raised. He included in his will an unusual request that his son grow up in one of three cultural hubs. “It is my strong desire [that] my son, Cooper Hoffman, be raised and reside in or near the borough of Manhattan [or] Chicago, Illinois, or San Francisco, California,” he said in the will. It was written in 2004 before the births of his two daughters. “The purpose of this request is so that my son will be exposed to the culture, arts and architecture that such cities offer,” the Broadway and Hollywood star wrote. Hoffman’s latest film, “A Most Wanted Man,” opened in theaters on July 18.
And thanks to the Internet, Twitter etc. I can basically stalk him every day. I have found his address, his mother's name and all sorts of personal details which means I'm getting sucked in deeper and deeper. How can I stop myself? Help!
They were roughly of the same time. Which do you prefer, and why?
Damn, what happened to him is really horrible. He was a brilliant man.
“I’m going to push back a little on that," Farrow interjected. "We’ve had Palestinian voices on our air.” “Maybe for 30 seconds, and then you have twenty-five minutes for Bibi Netanyahu, and half an hour for Naftali Bennett," Jebreal countered, referring to Israel's prime minister and minister of the economy, respectively.

Oooh, shall we talk about the time two very well known Vikings players were caught in a compromising situation with an underage girl?... Bet you didn't hear about that one in the news. We can do this all day, Vikings. Special teams hears *everything*... But we'll save all that for the trial. It'll be more fun that way."
From his pearl-clutching review of the new Harper Lee bio: "'The Mockingbird Next Door' conjured mostly sad images in my mind. Ms. Lee has a regular booth at McDonald's, where she goes for coffee. She eats takeout salads from Burger King on movie night. When she fishes, she uses wieners for bait. She feeds the town ducks daily, with seed corn from a plastic Cool Whip Free container, calling 'Woo-hoo-HOO! Woo-hoo-HOO!' Somehow learning all this is worse than it would be to learn that she steals money from a local orphanage."

Some comments in another thread made me want to post this…someone talked about a guy who gets super hard right before cumming. It reminded me of a guy I blew whose cock would bend a little right before he fired his load… What's a hot thing a guy has said, or done, or a hot physical response from a guy that you've experienced just as he's about to blow?
[quote]Vulture: Did you ever get a chance to talk to or bond with Luke Grimes when he was playing James, before they switched off? Ellis: I didn’t, but I’m completely… I mean, I can say I’m not going to make a comment, but I just think that, you’re an actor, you’re an actor on a show that’s True Blood, we’re all sitting there going, “You quit your job because … really?” I’m just… I’m over him. You quit your job because you don’t want to play a gay part? As if it’s… You know what? I’m going to stop talking. [quote]Vulture: That’s okay. I get what you’re saying. If you’re going to be on True Blood, you have to be open to a lot of experiences. Ellis: You have to be open. But more importantly, you make a statement when you do something like that. I did a documentary called Damn Wonderful, about gay suicide, and you make a statement, a big statement, when you go, “I don’t want to play this part because it’s gay.” If you have a child, if you have a son, and he comes out as gay, what are you going to do? If you have a daughter who comes out gay…? You just made a statement, and it has ripple effects. First of all, this show, it’s True Blood, and shit, we get scared when we read scripts! Excuse my language. When scripts come, we’re like, “What are they going to have us do this week?” But when you make a statement that is a judgment… I was kind of like, “Have you met Alan Ball?” I’m supposed to do what my boss tells me to do, as an actor. I can’t approach a character with judgment. I certainly can’t tell my boss, “I can act what I want to act, but not what you tell me to act,” especially on a show where you come in, knowing what it is. I was like, “Okay… I guess?” I just thought that, having just done the documentary, I didn’t like what he did because he made a statement, and sometimes you have to take responsibility. [quote]Vulture: Is it safe to say he won’t be invited back for the True Blood musical? Ellis: [Laughs.] I don’t think he’ll be invited back to HBO.
He had a cute babay too!

Well, duh! Here's the link to an abstract of the actual study.
First Andy Schleck, after a fall. Then Chris Froone, after a series of falls. Two minutes ago, the third Tour de France winner just abandoned the race after a nasty fall. Contador, gone. If there were any other previous winners left in the race I'd say girl, you jn danger.
I think they are hot! Especially holding on to the guy driving. I had no idea how erotic it is.
What the fuck is the matter with people ?

I'm moving to a new place and am shopping for a new mattress. Holy cow, there are so many choices and they're all so expensive. I don't want to drop 5 grand on a mattress. Is memory foam better than a regular mattress? Is it like sleeping on a giant sponge? I heard it gets hot and you can't sit on the edge. How is fucking on a memory foam? Do you just sink in since there are no springs to give it any pushback?
His handle is Twink69. I've been following him for about a week and it's like a train wreck...I can't stop watching. He admits in his bio that he has some physical challenges that limit him from doing some things. He also claims he is 18, but then later says he is 25 or 30 years old. He claims he has been living with a 78 year old man who picked him up online when he was only 10. Not to be mean or anything, but it's apparent after watching awhile that he has challenges other than physical ones. He has a big dick, but half the time he hides it under his low hangers so that it appears he doesn't have one and claims to viewers that he doesn't have a dick. He will stick his dick into his asshole as well to hide it. He also owns a very large dildo that he lays on his stomach to get people to think it's really his. The weird thing is, no one has ever seen his dick hard before. It is always flaccid, no matter what. Viewers get very angry with him for doing this and lying. He is online right now.

There's a debate over it in astrological communities and online sources have switched between the two. I say Aquarius rising since that puts her sun in the 7th house and Saturn in the 10th--thereby explaining her tendency to partner with people to build her image and her obsession with her career. Virgo rising would put her moon in the 1st house, which I just don't see.
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?
Best written comedy on TV, though in a weird way it could be funnier. The interplay between Selina and her poor neglected unloved daughter tonight was terrific.

The BF and I are going there for a few days this summer, visiting with an eye to possibly moving there. What can you bitches tell me about the city and its neighborhoods? I know there's a project underway to expand mass transit, and it's going to a few neighborhoods. Where should we visit? Where should we look for houses (especially nice midcentury-ish places and not McMansiony monstrosities)? What should we avoid? TIA.

The idea that Mitt Romney may run for president again in 2016 is getting closer to becoming a reality as a Vox Populi Poll found that 70% of Republican primary voters are open to voting again for Romney. Republican primary voters in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina were asked if they would consider voting for Romney again for their party’s nomination in 2016. Twenty-three percent of South Carolina primary voters would vote for Mitt Romney again, and 51% would consider it. In New Hampshire, 30% would definitely vote for him, and 47% would consider it. In Iowa, 21% would definitely vote for him, and 53% would consider it. The numbers in each state suggest that Romney already has enough support to win two or maybe all three of the first three primary states on the Republican calendar. Romney’s support has stayed fairly consistent with his 2012 performance. In 2012, Romney got 25% of the caucus vote in Iowa. Today, he is at 21% in the state. Romney got 39% of the 2012 GOP primary vote in New Hampshire, and he is at 30% today. In South Carolina, Romney got 28% of the vote in 2012, and he is sitting at 23% today. Romney’s lingering popularity with Republican primary voters suggests that voters aren’t in love with any of their possible options. Scandals have sunk Chris Christie and Scott Walker. Rand Paul remains a Paul, and his foreign policy views are completely out of step with most of the party. Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio have past support of immigration reform working against them, and the rest of the potential candidates hail from the Ted Cruz kooky wing of the party. A glance through the alternatives makes it easy to understand why Romney remains popular with so many Republican primary voters. It might seem unbelievable, but Mr. 47% could be the least damaged Republican option out there. The big money voices in the GOP have been trying to cut a deal to clear the field and hand Romney the nomination, but they may not even need to do it. A path is forming for Mitt Romney to run for a third time, and win back to back Republican nominations. Romney would lose to Hillary Clinton by an even larger margin than he lost to President Obama, but Republicans in early voting states believe that he is their best option in what could be a historically bad field of candidates. Republican voters are willing to hand the presidency to Hillary Clinton by returning to Mitt Romney as their nominee.
The leader of the Mississippi Federation of College Republicans, Evan Alvarez, announced Monday that he was resigning his post — and switching political parties. “I am leaving my position in the [Republican] organization and have begun to speak to members of the Mississippi Democratic Party and will be changing my party affiliation to Democrat in the next few days,” Alvarez told the Clarion-Ledger. (See actual tweets at link!) Alvarez’ departure was apparently motivated in part by the acrimonious primary campaign in which incumbent GOP Sen. Thad Cochran faced off against Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel. Alvarez campaigned for Cochran, the Daily Caller reported. “As chair of the [College Republican National Committee (CNRC)], some would expect I would be disappointed by today’s news,” CNRC Chairwoman Alex Smith told the Daily Caller. “I am not.” Smith said, “This defection was based on self-interest, not principle,” and added, “Mr. Alvarez will feel increasingly lonely in a party that is hemorrhaging young voters because of President Obama’s and Democrats’ extreme left wing agenda that is crippling our generation.” Alvarez’ Twitter activity reflects dissatisfaction with the GOP. For its part, the Mississippi Federation of College Republicans moved quickly and announced a new leader, Caroline Collins, Monday afternoon.
Still very funny. It's fun to recognize in the cast Kathy Griffin as Taffy the back-up singer and Donal Logue as ex-husband Shane Pencil.
[quote]Rosie O'Donnell has made her deal with "The View" ... sources connected with the negotiations tell TMZ. We're told the show will make the announcement shortly. TMZ broke the story ... the negotiations fired up a few days ago and the deal was almost completed by end of business day Monday. The deal is now complete. Rosie will join Whoopi Goldberg on the show. As we reported, producers are also looking for a Latina and a conservative. Two conservative candidates who are being scoped are Abby Huntsman and Margaret Hoover.

After learning that her former View colleague might return to the program for its eighteenth season, the Fox & Friends co-host called into her new show to dredge up old drama. Hasselbeck, who is on vacation, brought up her infamous fight with O'Donnell, which led to the comic's premature exit from the show. "What could ruin a vacation more than to hear news like this?" Hasselbeck asked Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade. "I know Rosie very well. We worked quite closely. Talk about not securing the border! Here in comes to The View the very woman who spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network, and really in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there, coming back with a bunch of control ready to regain a seat at the View table." According to Hasselbeck, O'Donnell's possible re-hiring is "not surprising" at all. As the conservative television personality explained to her co-hosts, "I think this has been in the works for a long time." "I'll go back to the reunion show for [Barbara Walters]. How odd is this, when you have the woman, who again, insinuated that our own troops were terrorists in Iraq at the time, then left the show...to have such ease the day of Barbara's goodbye show was shocking to me? She walked around with a lot of control and I had the chance to talk to her," the Survivor alum, 37, said. She continued, "Rosie herself told me, on-set, while we were mic'ed up, that she produced the reunion show to have everybody together and it was her idea. Now, would you think that the woman who left in the way that she did would be producing Barbara's goodbye show? Here's the shocker: It was actually her hello show." Hasselbeck said she will be "very interested" to see how O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg might interact, particularly because Goldberg is an EGOT winner and O'Donnell is not. "I don't think it would be wise for Rosie O'Donnell to challenge Whoopi Goldberg on anything. I really don't," she warned. "And I would also say that after years of being there, Rosie found out one thing about me: Don't mess with a pregnant mama and do not mess with our military when it comes to this girl sitting next to her." "I'll go back to the reunion show for [Barbara Walters]. How odd is this, when you have the woman, who again, insinuated that our own troops were terrorists in Iraq at the time, then left the show...to have such ease the day of Barbara's goodbye show was shocking to me? She walked around with a lot of control and I had the chance to talk to her," the Survivor alum, 37, said. She continued, "Rosie herself told me, on-set, while we were mic'ed up, that she produced the reunion show to have everybody together and it was her idea. Now, would you think that the woman who left in the way that she did would be producing Barbara's goodbye show? Here's the shocker: It was actually her hello show." When O'Donnell made her first appearance on the show in February 2014 since leaving the show seven years earlier, she joked about their feud. Hasselbeck, who played nice with O'Donnell when cameras rolled in May 2014, also dropped another secret about The View's reunion episode. "I do believe that this has been in the works for a long, long time. She wanted to re-do the split-screen and voice it over from our original confrontation right there. I was not up for that," she recalled. "She seemed to have a lot of control for Barbara's farewell show. Again, it is Rosie O'Donnell's hello show, in my opinion." Though she may sound bitter, Hasselbeck is much happier on a different network. "I could not be more thankful to be at Fox & Friends. You all are an outstanding group," she said. "I'm so thankful. Days like this remind me of that. You're all doing a great job. Mark my words, this is just the beginning—again!"

We go a few times per year and just got back from another long weekend. It''s become Palm Springs east. Lots and lots of older gays have moved-in and seem to have taken over.\ \ I don''t have an issue with older guys, I''m no spring chicken myself at 33, but the entire town seems to have taken on a different feel the last couple of years. While many of the crowds this summer were much of the same, much older guys are showing up. Some of them are the old crusty muscle daddies and some are just ancient. Lots of mimosa drinking happening, so many of the year-round townies appear to be mid 40s and up, lots of sneering and bitching about how they''re tired of the "tourists", etc. (we know several locals).\ \ What used to be a vibrant, diverse gay resort town has become God''s waiting room for fugly, sour faced old gays. I''m expecting piano bars specializing in Shirley Temples to dominate Commercial Street by this time next year.
I know we've fought several (all the recent) wars to prop up the US dollar. There are many smaller countries that can be intimidated in to staying with the status quo. But why hasn't Russia started trading in some other currency or a basket of currencies? If I were Putin, that's one of the first things I would have done. And you might say, "well, we could put a lot of economic pressure on them". Well, Putin knows our economy and empire would go down the tubes in no time at all. And more importantly, he knows that TPTB in the US know that all too well.
What do we think, DL? He's frightening, yes, but he does have great nipples and a beautiful foreskin. How does he get away with all these nude shots in Russia?

My boyfriend and I were lying in bed, naked, in a non-sexual way, and talking about how happy we are to be together. Eventually the conversation turned toward our mutual interest in possibly being married to each other some day. As we talked about the details of being committed to each other in such a capacity, we both sprung rock-hard erections. We now call this a "commitment boner". Has anyone else ever experienced this?
Yas, the new season starts next week. I can't wait! Too bad Kelly Price left the show. She brought so much fuckery to season one that her drama will be deeply missed. But we still got Lil' Mo on the show, the breakout star, so it should be a good season.
Don't I look and sound like James Marsden? I also look amazingly like several other actors who I won't name.

For years The Talk has been within striking distance of dethroning The View as the number 1 female panel show. After four years of hard work The Talk has finally BEATEN The View According to Nielsen live plus same day ratings, the CBS talker topped “The View” in women 25-54 by +10% (1.1/07 vs. 1.0/07) and by +14% in women 18-49 (0.8/05 vs. 0.7/05) for the week ending Friday, July 11. What can The View do to turn this sinking ship around?
This is the thread where you draw attention to pivots in TV introductory sequences, which for some reason is supposed to make actresses look more attractive (this was especially believed to be so in the 70s and 80s). I will start with the most famous on Datalounge: Susan Sullivan on the intro (beginning in the third season) for "Falcon Crest," at @:56 into the clip. We might classify this as the "Oh, I'm so relieved it's you!" 180-degree pivot.

Anybody else see last night''s 60-Minutes interview with "Marky Mark"? The reporter, Laura WhatsHerName giggled and grin throughout the entire thing while recounting to Wahlberg his multiple car thefts, stealing and robbing back in Boston. Even his local priest had an "aw shucks, he was such a little scamp" attitude while recounting how Wahlberg would smile and wave to him while driving by in stolen cars.\ \ He robbed a guy outside a store in Dorchester, a Boston ''burb and stabbed him with something and took the man''s eye out.\ \ Wonder what ever happened to that man and if the very high-brown ''actor'' and ''producer'' ever compensated him in any way.\ \ I had no idea he was such a violent little homophobe.
In spite of all the problems I'd still love to raise an Anne Hathaway baby. She's a little irritating but I think you could shield the kid from that. Plus the kid could sing and be statuesque!!! is that all that matters?
I would guess Whitney or Streisand, but I'm sure DL queens will school me. Is it just range that makes a voice great? Tone? Phrasing? (I know nothing about singing, so I preemptively apologize for my stupidity)
I recently went to my cousin's wedding and met his half-brother's two sons, age 14 and 11 for the first time. The 14-year-old struck me as a typical straight teenage boy, but in comparison, his little brother was very flamboyant in comparison. He was very friendly, crossed his legs, he got very clingy with other male relatives, and boy, could he ever dance at the reception. My gaydar reading was off the chart. They're both nice kids and we got along fine.
Do you think they make him look smarter?
And he was also having sex chats with minors over the internet. Nice.
Have you automatically blocked them? I don''t like the idea of him seeing my stuff on mutual friends pages.

Jake is obviously an exhibitionist (yes, we've seen him onstage!) He just posted a picture of Adam Lambert stuffing him last night in New York. It's great when two openly gay celebrities feel free to mingle the way the the straight ones do.
I'm over a month behind on Stewart/Colbert. Last night I watched a few episodes and noticed Ron Reagan Jr., Celebrity Atheist, doing fundraisers for some atheist foundation (Separation of Church and State Org?). Cool commercial. He says he's a life-long atheist, supports the separation of Church and State as the founders intended and is not afraid of burning in hell. Always liked that boy, sometimes in spite of himself (and his closet).
What level are you on? Let's visit each other's towns and whack each other's snakes.
It's been a whole season without it, I know. But I still miss it.
Musical of film 'Rocky' knocked down on Broadway Associated Press, By MARK KENNEDY 1 hour ago NEW YORK (AP) — The Broadway musical "Rocky" is hanging up its gloves after being battered at the box office. Producers said Tuesday that the show will play its final performance at the Winter Garden Theatre on Aug. 17, after playing 28 previews and 188 regular performances. Based on the Oscar-winning 1976 film by Sylvester Stallone, the musical features a score by "Ragtime" veterans Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, and a story by Thomas Meehan, who wrote "Hairspray." Alex Timbers directed. The musical stays close to the film, which charted the rise and romance of amateur boxer and debt collector Rocky Balboa, who gets his shot against an undefeated heavyweight champ. Andy Karl starred as the hero. The musical never took off after mixed to poor reviews, despite a spectacular final few minutes when the boxing ring is lowered onto the first few rows. It broke the $1 million-mark only once and lately was making only half its $1,263,688 potential. The show earned four Tony Award nominations but took home no wins. The closing notice comes a day after "Holler If Ya Hear Me," a musical that that uses Tupac Shakur songs, announced it would close on Sunday after finding little love at the box office.
OH MY GOD!
What''s the dirt on this E! fashion guy? Does he have a boyfriend? How old is he?
Think his agent is just mindfucking him with all these offers?
I love this show. The season finale just aired and it brought the usual drama and hysterics. Trina debuted her stage act for the entire family and was a success, amidst her own personal marriage drama. Tamar has decided that she wants kids (maybe), but wants to have "popsicle" babies (have the eggs frozen and have a surrogate carry them at a later date). Towanda offered to carry the child for her, but no more than one.
Qaud and Mariah no longer friends. Dr. Simone is Broke.. Dr. Jackie is fighting mad... and Kari demoted to "friend of Toya"...oh my,
Arguably one of the best shows all time. Any behind the scenes dirt?
Just take a look at the comments which followed the story. Think the world is coming around on the gay issue? Think again.

I recall as a child hearing about worms of some kind in pigs. I was told by at least one historian (or was it a grammar school teacher?) that it was thought to be the reason the early Jews didn't eat pork. One historian (I verified this) speculated that Julius Caesar's seizure's were the result of these worms infecting his brain, the final stage of the infection. Are any of you infected by brain worms? That you know of, anyway.

The investors in Woody Allen’s new musical are sweating bullets — “Bullets Over Broadway.” Just when it looked as if Allen’s new $15 million musical had a pretty clear shot at box-office and Tony-Award glory, the New York Times published Dylan Farrow’s essay accusing Allen of molesting her when she was a kid. Who knows if the charges are true? Allen refuted them in his own essay in the paper. Clearly, the guy has a dark side: In “Manhattan,” he’s 40 and sleeping with a teenage Mariel Hemingway. He gets away with it only because he is, at least on-screen, sexually innocuous. In real life, he was never prosecuted for the crime Dylan says he committed. And while his marriage to Soon-Yi is creepy, it’s not illegal. But the court doesn’t buy tickets to Woody Allen shows. New Yorkers do. And the investors in “Bullets Over Broadway” are fretting that the scandal will damage their show. From what I’ve learned, they should be worried. “Bullets Over Broadway” was selling at a decent clip until Dylan’s accusations became public. Sales have slowed down this week, and the advance now stands at just $4 million. Any hopes that the show would open April 10 with $10 million in the bank have been dashed. “They’ll be lucky if they get to $6 million by opening night,” says a source. All is not lost, however. There are, I’m sure, many New Yorkers who will not buy a ticket to a Woody Allen movie, let alone a Woody Allen musical, on principle. In their eyes, he’s a child-molesting creep, and that’s the end of it. But there are other New Yorkers (and I’m in this camp), who, though we think he’s weird and would cross to the other side of the street if we saw him coming toward us, still go to his movies and watch masterpieces like “Annie Hall” at least once a year. My sense is that most Broadway insiders — that is, Tony voters — fall in the latter category. “I love Woody Allen movies,” says a Tony voter. “Woody Allen himself? Yuck. But I’ll judge the show on its merits. If it’s good, really good, it can win the Tony for Best Musical. If it’s bad, or just so-so, I think voters will look for something else to get behind.” The onus, say several insiders, is on Susan Stroman, who’s directing and choreographing the musical. A Tony winner for “The Producers,” she’s a beloved figure on Broadway. If “Bullets Over Broadway” is good, she’ll reap the rewards and just might pull the show over the finish line for Best Musical. But if her work isn’t top-notch, Tony voters will go for something else, “If/Then,” perhaps, or “After Midnight.” “This is Susan’s show to lose,” says another Tony voter. “If her work’s half as good as it was on ‘The Producers,’ the show has a shot. If it’s not, it’s dead. I don’t think any of us could support a bad or even mediocre show by Woody Allen.” Allen can rule out any chance of winning the Tony for Best Book — and not because he’s an accused child molester. Those who’ve read his script say it’s little more than his screenplay run through his typewriter. “It’s not been reinvented for the stage the way Mel Brooks reinvented ‘The Producers,’ ” says a source. “Bullets Over Broadway” begins previews next month. Given the attention surrounding Allen’s scandalous life, you can be sure the same reporters who covered the first preview of “Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark” — that is to say, me and Patrick Healy — will be there. We won’t judge Allen’s private life. But we will judge his show.
