I was reading the Bryan Singer thread on the Lipstick Alley message board and there was THIS: * * * "God knows I knew something like this would grab the spotlight once again. Out of respect, I won't say names but I've attended a few of these odd Hollywood freak festivities and while most peoples jaws would drop if they saw this in person, it's so common in this industry. I've seen some of your favorite actors get their backs blown out while being force fed pills to keep them helpless and drifted while these heavy hitters have their ways with them. I remember one party a top director had at The Castle. A lot of young actors were on the scene and security held a tight shift and guarded the entrance with their lives [up until the director had them lock the doors and only thing you could hear was the bass booming from inside]. Drinks and pills everywhere and transexuals dressed up as nurses, standing in corners and by the bar selling ecstasy pills and everything under the sun. The very top floor, which was pretty big and covered in red brick was used as some type of orgy room. Couches and bean bags were scattered around with a disco ball, flashing lights and DJ playing the latest tunes [Blame it on the Alcohol brought the freaks out of everyone] A certain white boy was so drunk and high and I remember seeing him [along with a few others] do some sort of human centipede stunt, face down, ass up with an ashtray of what was most likely coke in front of him with a nose redder than Rudolphs. Sex on the floor, sex against the wall, used condoms on the floor with body fluids seeping out, poppers and confetti. The director leaned white boy over a bean bag and raw dogged him like no tomorrow in front of a few hundred people. Director holding a bottle of Cristal and laughing hysterically while the crowd cheered him on. "You like this stiff cock in you?!" white boy was so sedated to the point to where I felt he wasn't there. He was there but he wasn't 'there'. Hollywood is a monster if you fall into the wrong hands." * * * "He won an MTV Movie award, he worked with Diddy, Beastie Boyz, Kanye, Biggie and Jay Z." does anyone have a guess for this? a director and a drugged out white guy he was fucking at the party." * * * "My guess was M&/M. He seems so drugged out and miserable most of the time, and he seems to fit the description. His entire circle of associates in LA have been long rumored to be a bunch of DL freaks. Also, he did make a successful, well funded film and soundtrack. For a newbie with no acting experience...I raise my eyebrows on that. Also, B/Murphy, another tragic druggie with a weird family dynamic was in that movie." * * * "That was my guess too. That's why he disappeared for a few years, gained all that weight, and went to rehab. It's sad and I hope hes found happiness." * * * WTF is that line about DL freaks??? Does it seriously refer to Datalounge!!!
seriously worth a scroll down.
The most exciting piece of information from today's [italic]Hollywood Reporter[/italic] article on THE NORMAL HEART was this: "[Ryan Murphy] hadn't planned to pitch it to HBO when he found himself in a meeting with HBO programming president Michael Lombardo about another project, [bold]a proposed movie about the making of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, starring Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon.[/bold] Lombardo wasn't interested in that concept but asked what else Murphy was working on." I hope to god Lombardo reconsiders and greenlights this pronto!
Is there any place I can buy seeds in bulk? For $1.19 I get a packet of about 15 seeds. I'd like a packet with a hundred or so seeds for a lower price per seed.
Not sure there is much in the way of eye candy this season. But I do appreciate an entirely new cast.
I'm about half-way through this book, which I have pretty mixed feelings about. It is a very cinematic novel of course, so it could make a decent movie I've seen a few little threads with casting ideas (not on DL of course) but I thought this was a perfect thread for DL since so many of you have read this. I have no good ideas for Theo. I do keep thinking Michael Fassbender would be perfect for Theo's Dad--I had not seen that suggestion anywhere. Rachel Weisz has already been suggested by others as his mom, which would be perfect IMO. I can see John Hurt as Welty and Mia Wasikowska as Pippa. Somebody else suggested Anna Paquin for Xandra, though I think she's a little young looking. Cameron Diaz? Ezra Miller seems like a perfect Boris (but I've only seen him in one movie.) Now that I've been looking online for Ezra Miller, I found a photo of Logan Lerman might be good for boy Theo, but I have no idea how good he is as an actor. Not even sure what he's been in. I could see Brendan Gleeson as Hobie. So, Lynn Stairmaster et al, have at it...
The Great Webmasteroni has been making a lot of threads magically disappear lately.
Lot's going on. German players talking about coming out/not coming out. Real Madrid in free-fall. Sevilla maybe reborn. Cristiano asks to leave. Villa a scoring machine again. Iniesta voted best player in Europe. Llorente still hot as fuck. Pep settled into fancy digs in New York. Fasten your seat belts!

Like this guy... "So, Anthony Hopkins was one of the stars in a film called "The Girl from Petrovka." And he went to London to buy a copy of the book so that he could read about the book and the character and so on. But he couldn't find a copy of the book. None of the bookstores stocked it. But then on his way home on the tube station in London, he came across a copy of the book on the seat next to him. Absolutely incredible. Later, when he met the author and told the author this story, the author told him that a year or so before he'd lost a copy of the book in London and it was a particular copy that he'd been annotating to change the English into American spellings and things like that, and he'd lost it on the Tube. And when Anthony Hopkins showed him the copy of the book that he'd found on the tube months later, it turned out to be exactly the same book. So, somehow, this book had traveled through space and time in a loop, in a circle."

No, dear. That's your daughter. 'Three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep has revealed that, as a student, she thought she was "too ugly to be an actress". Speaking at Indiana University Bloomington, Streep said: "I think I was probably like every other girl who puts on a princess dress and expects everyone to pay full and total attention. And most of us grow out of that. [At Vassar College] I was always in plays, but I thought it was vain to be an actress. Plus, I thought I was too ugly to be an actress. Glasses weren't fabulous then."

Does City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito play for our team?
Keri Russell is in it. It's all 1980s Cold War bullshit. It's a Republican lovefest. Will people just let go of the Reagan era already? For fuck's sake. The title card has a hammer and sickle in it (Communist symbol). The show was created by a retired military guy. The shit written on IMDB's message board is a Republican wankfest. Tired of seeing the promos.
Isn't that usually the progression. Housewife, failed career comeback, humanitarian. and what the hell does A and U stand for?
I cannot believe that this week (April 25) is FIVE years since Bea Arthur passed away. I rarely fuss over celebrities but she was just so unique, and her comic timing was amazing. I want to be Maude Findlay when I grow up. Still.
Yeah, she's a pampered brat who cheated on her first husband. But Dean's chronic cheating has really damaged her. He used her for money and she must know that by now, after having 4 children.
I hate working, I'm sick of my partner's bullshit but I'm afraid to be alone, my friends suck, and life is just a pain. I'm over all the bullshit. I took a mental health day yesterday, but now I just want another one. Xanax is the only thing that helps.

The new scripted drama premieres tonight. From the creator of "The Tudors" and starring former CK underwear model Travis Fimmel and Gabriel Byrne. I'm going to give it a shot...early reviews are encouraging, and I'm guessing many of the male characters will be hot, in an uncivilized, possibly murderous yet emotionally conflicted way. Kind of like some of the guys I've known from real life. I want to see wanton pillaging and bedroom intrigue.
It is known.
Is Betty losing her fla-vah ?
Since the spoiler in the "official thread" states that his spoilers are wanted, can we have a thread that doesn't say what happens in each episode until it has aired? I like all the teams in this All-Stars season. I will hate to see all of them get eliminated. I can't believe Team YouTube just let their taxi go while they were in the middle of no-where. They knew they had blown it and were good sports about it. They must have really been behind because even in the edit, they never crossed paths with Brandon and Rachael.
Directed by Melissa McCarthy. (suddenly G's cable lawyer show seems dignified.)
lucky bitch that he married.
Coming up at 11!!!!! So now what's her problem?!!!
I swear I saw her on my TV the other day.... What's she been doing lately? I saw her on GCB a few years ago and she was in a Dolly Parton circa 1970s wig...looked positively ancient.
Lesbian couple devastated after baby they adopted is 'killed by teen father' a month after they were forced to give him back - and they learned of his death on TV An Iowa couple are in shock after a four-month-old boy they adopted was killed, allegedly by his teen father, just a month after they were forced to give him back to his biological parents. Rachel and Heidi McFarland of Ankeny cared for little Gabriel from birth until the middle of March, when his mother, Markeya Atkins, 16, took him back. But on Wednesday the couple learned the infant had died - when they were watching the evening news. 'It's like he's been taken away from you again,' Rachel McFarland told the Des Moines Register. Police have charged Drew James Weehler-Smith of Des Moines with neglect of a dependent person after he left his son alone in an apartment on Tuesday. The baby was found unresponsive by his mother, who had been out running errands, at around 8:20p.m., with a bottle by his side and a white substance around his mouth. Atkins is heartbroken over the death of her son, a picture of whom she's put as her Facebook cover photo. But the McFarlands, who have been married 5 years and together 18, are also devastated.They had supported the mother financially through her pregnancy and had been with her at every doctor's appointment. 'We brought him home from the hospital,' Rachel McFarland told the Register. 'I cut his umbilical cord.' She said from that moment on she spent every waking moment with the baby until his birth mother reneged on the adoption that was agreed last September. In Iowa, the birth mother has three months and then one additional 31-day probationary period to change her mind about giving up her baby. 'We had to go through our worst possible day with our attorney,' Rachel said, referring to when Gabriel was taken from them. 'And then we found out on the news today. ...Nobody called or told me.' According to police, the young mom left the baby with Weehler-Smith in an apartment in the 6500 block of Chaffee Road at about 7:25p.m. while she went to the library and to run errands. About 25 minutes later, a friend dropped into the apartment to collect a phone charger and saw the father holding the child. She left and called the mother asking whether she trusted Weehler-Smith with the infant. The Register reported that the mother asked the friend to return to the apartment but when she pulled in she saw the father driving away without the baby. She notified the mom who rushed home, and found Gabriel limp and not breathing in a glider chair. He as pronounced dead at hospital. While devastated, the McFarlands are determined not to let the failed adoption and Gabriel's death ruin them. 'We're just left to put the pieces back together,' Rachel said. Weehler-Smith could face additional charges pending the results of an autopsy.

Seth Meyers to Host 2014 Emmy Awards APRIL 24, 2014 | 07:55PM PT; Cynthia Littleton Seth Meyers has been tapped to host NBC’s telecast of the Primetime Emmy Awards on Aug. 25. NBC and the Television Academy have also set kudocast vet Don Mischer as exec producer of the live broadcast originating from downtown L.A.‘s Nokia Theatre. There was little doubt that the host of this year’s Emmycast would come from NBC’s latenight ranks, given all the changes that NBC implemented this year. “Seth’s expertise and ease in front of a live audience during his time at ‘SNL,’ as well as his comedic brilliance both as a writer and in front of the camera on ‘SNL’ and ‘Late Night,’ makes him the perfect choice to host the Emmys,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC’s prexy of latenight and alternative programming. “Plus, with Don’s vast experience at putting these type of big productions together, we’ll be in great hands.” Peacock execs likely concluded that Meyers would get more of a boost from the Emmycast showcase than Fallon, who has been on a strong ratings roll since he took the helm of “The Tonight Show” from Jay Leno in February. Fallon benefited from the Emmy spotlight when he hosted in 2010, about 18 months after he replaced Conan O’Brien on “Late Night.” Meyers’ long run at “Saturday Night Live” makes him perfectly suited for awards-show duty. He also hosted ESPN’s Espy Awards in 2010 and 2011. Mischer is an Emmy mainstay who most recently steered the 2012 telecast and also has numerous Oscars, Tony, and Olympics telecasts on his resume. This year’s Emmy telecast falls on the final Monday in August — instead of its usual mid-September berth — because of NBC’s commitments to “Sunday Night Football.” On Wednesday, MTV announced it would mount its annual Video Music Awards bash the night before the Emmys, on Aug. 24, at the Forum in Inglewood.

Bumped into him this morning with his daughter, and he told me how he spent $200k making his daughter a "singing sensation" as he put it. She had a minor autotuned hit here in Canada with some airplay, and a video on the Family Channel (Canadian Disney channel,) but other than that, she isn't that big. He pointed at her and said I should ask for her autograph now, because she was going to be the next Christina. I didn't ask which Christina. As he was talking to me, I looked at the daughter while she stood there with her oversize sunglasses, and huge handbag hanging off her emaciated forearm as she texted, and I thought what an immense waste of money that was.

I'm puzzled by the common wisdom on the Internet that it was bad but forgivable for a character to push a child out a window of a high tower to kill him, and to kill his own cousin in cold blood... but yet rape is for some reason worse than all those things, and unforgivable. And that to show this rape was the show going too far, but showing cannibalism and torture and bloody murders (including a crossbow bolt shot into a head) is not a problem. I just don't get the incredible hysteria around rape in our culture right now. This is all tied with the "triggering" bullshit.
Whatever happened to her? Bitch dominated the 1980's then collapsed.

I just discovered that ESPN Classic (a channel I would NEVER otherwise watch) seems to be re-running these classics from the 70s and 80s. Today I saw the swimming competition featuring Daniel J.

Maybe gays that are watching want to know, "Can God forgive me? Or can I go to heaven as a gay person?" Absolutely. But the same for any of us. We have to repent of our sins in turn. A person cannot stay in adultery and be accepted by God. You’ll have to repent. Graham continued, "Franklin Graham is a sinner, and I’m no better than a gay person. I’m a sinner. But I’ve been forgiven, and I’ve turned from my sins. For any person that’s willing to repent in turn, God will forgive.” Video:
I'm at the brink of my final year in my undergraduate. I failed two courses in my first two years, had to stay behind a full year. My gpa, I think, for my first two years was either a c plus or a b if you count the courses which I retook. My third year has been pretty good with only two B pluses and the rest A's, so is there any likelihood that I could make it into medical school. After I graduate, I plan on resting a bit and perhaps try my hands at research after I got some work experience. I will also try to make contacts with my employers and other people who could serve as my reference. I'm currently 21 soon to be 22. I'm hoping to finish medical school by age 30. Does anyone see this as being possible? Could I get in based on merit and recommendations?

Holy Mary Mother Of God who hell green lit this? From just the commercials it has to be the campiest piece of crap to come down the pike in years. This "actress" hanging out of a car arms akimbo, standing on a rooftop gyrating like a cat in heat. Nothing in any of the clips shows she can even recite a line, let alone carry a show.

The First Lady got a little more than she expected on Thursday while hosting a ceremony for Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day at the White House. During a question-and-answer session with Michelle Obama, a young girl hopped forward as Michelle Obama attempted to hand her the mic while the girl handed her a piece of paper. According to The Associated Press, the girl passed Obama her father's resume.

Sorry if this has been posted already. I searched but couldn't find the most recent news. I love the smell of schadenfreude in the evening. Cliven Bundy: Another conservative folk hero exposes racial nerve Washington (CNN) -- Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy's remarks about whether the "Negro" fared better under slavery represents the latest in a series of incendiary racial comments from a new crop of folk heroes embraced in some conservative circles. "They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton," Bundy said to reporters, according to the New York Times. "And I've often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn't get no more freedom. They got less freedom," he was quoted as saying. Bundy, 67, a rancher whose much-publicized land dispute with the federal government endeared him to conservatives, defended his comments as idle thoughts. "In my mind I'm wondering, are they better off being slaves, in that sense, or better off being slaves to the United States government, in the sense of the subsidies? I'm wondering. That's what. And the statement was right. I am wondering," he said Thursday on "The Peter Schiff Show." But politicians like Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, a potential 2016 presidential GOP contender, Nevada Republican Sen. Dean Heller and other conservatives scrambled to distance themselves from the controversy. "His remarks on race are offensive and I wholeheartedly disagree with him," Paul said in a statement. Heller "completely disagrees with Mr. Bundy's appalling and racist statements, and condemns them in the most strenuous way," according to his spokesman, Chandler Smith. The Republican National Committee said Bundy's comments were "completely beyond the pale. Both highly offensive and 100% wrong on race." But experts on race and politics say the comments, much like those of rocker Ted Nugent, who created a firestorm when he called President Barack Obama a "subhuman mongrel," also speak to complicated and deeply fraught cultural tensions running beneath the surface in some segments of America. "We are looking at some of the 'last white men standing,'" Mark Anthony Neal, an African-American studies professor at Duke University, said of demographic shifts that show minorities now represent more than half of the nation's population born in 2010 and 2011, according to the most-recent Census data. "His comments represent that and people rally around him because of this idea that white men are under siege. They are calling out the political establishment to stand by them," he said. Over the next several generations, political experts say minority voters will become more of a power base in the Deep South, the Southwest and in California. During the 2012 presidential election, Republicans faced huge losses among minorities and women, prompting the GOP to reexamine outreach to those groups. But Bundy's comments -- much like those of Nugent and Duck Dynasty star, Phil Robertson, who shared during an interview with GQ last year pastoral recollections of blacks "singing and happy" as he and his family worked alongside them in Louisiana cotton fields -- speak to a certain politically active fringe element, political experts say. Among those who support views of limited government, there is often a "higher than average endorsement of views that could be seen as racial resentment," said Andra Gillespie, an associate professor of political science at Emory University.

I'm 45 and am finally ready to embrace the fact that I am, to most younger men, a Daddy. At least sexually speaking. I have not really been attracted to twinks in the past but they are the only ones who have been approaching me for the last few years (both on Grindr and in person). They are the only ones who seem sexually available. Men my own age (who I prefer) are already partnered or want younger men too. So I have decided to go for it. The only way I am going to have a sex life with something other than my right hand is to work the Top Daddy thing and start fucking some twinks. How do I make it work without being a creepy old man? Let them Grindr me first? What are they expecting? Just sex? How should I present myself? The twinks in my city are all very trendy and hipstery and quite girly. I suppose they want the gruff, masculine Dad experience. I know I did at that age.
Was reading some stuff about Shilts, and he claimed that sailors from aroud the globe who gatherered in NYC that summer brought AIDS here. His theory was based on anecdotal evidence.

Which decade was wilder, crazier, more fun? I admit that I sometimes get these two decades confused (in terms of fashion, music) especially around the late '60s/early '70s when the style seemed blended together. Bell bottoms started appearing around '68/'69, no? Growing up in the '70s, did people reminisce about the '60s?

My mom used to use it in the 1960 on chops and steak and burgers. It was SO good. It made everything taste like it was charcoal broiled without having to go outside. I haven't seen it since the 1970s. It was jet black. I don't remember if it was salt or powder, I think salt. Whatever I can't find it even online. I'll bet it was very toxic or something but sure was good. It was especially good on the huge veal chops my mom would make.

STORRS, Conn. – A University of Connecticut professor asserted that he came from an ape on Tuesday as he went wild during a campus gospel presentation that included discussion on evolution. James Boster, Professor of Anthropology at University of Connecticut, spent over two hours attempting to draw students away from several evangelists that were open-air preaching and distributing gospel literature on campus. Evangelist Don Karns of Hampton, Virginia told Christian News Network that Boster approached him as he was holding a sign about evolution and became condescending and confrontational. “He asked me if I had accepted Darwin as my lord and savior,” Karns stated. “He was very agitated, very demonstrative. … It was very unbecoming of a professor.” Minutes later, Boster also began to heckle campus tour coordinator Scott Smith of Schoolmaster Ministries of Raleigh, North Carolina as he preached. “As I was pointing to Christ—I was talking about the sin nature—I said, ‘There’s probably some people out there—maybe even professors—who think they descended from monkeys,’” Smith recalled. “[Boster] jumped off the ground and came running over and basically started screaming, ‘I did not come from a monkey! I came from an ape!’” “He got about two inches from my nose,” he noted. “You could tell he was going to pop." Karns states that Boster then confronted him a second time, using profanity and likewise coming closely to his face. Andrew Rappaport of Striving for Eternity Ministries in Jackson, New Jersey witnessed Boster as he began presenting a speech in an attempt to stir up the students.

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.
So who is it? Who's the worst actor on television today. I'm curious to know what you guys think.
Remember the thread about the guy who accidentally sent his wank video to all of his friends, and family - and the hilarity that ensued?
Is anyone here a fan of her work? Does she love the gays?

Giant John Paul II crucifix falls and instantly crushes young man to death in Italy By Agence France-Presse; Thursday, April 24, 2014 12:30 EDT An Italian man was crushed to death on Wednesday by a giant crucifix honouring John Paul II that collapsed during a ceremony ahead of the late pope’s canonisation. A piece of the 30-metre (98-foot) high wooden cross fell during the event near an Alpine village, killing the young man on the spot, Italian media reported. The Jesus Christ statue on the cross is six metres high and weighs 600 kilogrammes and the crucifix was curved and fixed to the ground with cables, the reports said. The victim’s age was given at 20 or 21 years old. The cross was designed by sculptor Enrico Job and was created for John Paul II’s visit to Brescia in the Lombardy region in northern Italy in 1998. It was taken down, held in storage and then installed in a picturesque spot near the village of Cevo in 2005. The unusual shape of the crucifix was intended to represent the scars of World War II. John Paul II is to be declared a saint in the Vatican on Sunday, along with Italian pope John XXIII.
Thank you for playing and so long.
Twenty years ago riding the bus to work, there was a teenage girl sitting in the seat across and up one from me. She had the zipper on her pants down, and she was masturbating and sniffing/licking her fingers. When she noticed I was starring at her she flipped me off and called me a perv. I said, "You're fingering yourself on the bus and call me a perv?" She said she wasn't fingering herself, she was just adjusting her tampon. Frankly, that wasn't much better.
I watched both films and I have to say they are pretty similar in terms of quality with one HUGE difference that really sets one apart from the other. And that's none other than the actor Heath Ledger. In terms of action scenes, ya Captain America wins. Chris Evans is slightly better than the guy who plays batman who I can't even remember the name of. But Sebastian Stan loses big time to Heath Ledger as a villain. He's just not as engrossing to watch. I think the only reason I liked the Dark Knight is because of Heath Ledger. Thoughts?

It seems to happen with many gay men. A guy I used to work with now has several photos of himself being all cozy with a girl. His mother posted a comment on one saying how "proud" she is of him, presumably for turning straight. Then there's the famous case of DL favorite Anthony Perkins, who was famously turned straight by Victoria Principal. What explains this phenomenon? Is pussy magic?
Wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin: I’m absolutely for same-sex marriage 22nd April 2014, 9:52 PM, Nick Duffy Wrestling legend Stone Cold Steve Austin has proclaimed his strong support for same-sex marriage. The wrestler, real name Steven James Anderson, 49, said on his podcast, recorded last year: “I’ve got some damned good friends that are gay and I’m absolutely for same-sex marriage. “I don’t give a shit if two guys, two gals, guy-gal, whatever it is, I believe that any human being in America, or any human being in the goddamn world, that wants to be married. “If it’s the same-sex, more power to them. “What also chaps my ass, some of these churches, have the high horse that they get on and say ‘we as a church do not believe in that’. “Which one of these motherf**kers talked to God and God said that same-sex marriage was a no can do? Can you verify? Can you give me some background on that 411?” The WWE legend retired from professional wrestling in 2003, after winning a total of 21 championships, and is described as “the biggest star in the history of the WWE”. Last year, current WWE star Darren James came out as gay, the first time a wrestler has come out in the competition’s history. Listen to a clip from the wrestler’s podcast below.
The row began on April 19, when Morrissey published an anti-seal hunting screed on his website in which he lashed out at the Canadian Government for the characterization of the hunt as humane. Here is the back-and-forth Morrissey “If she (the Fisheries Minister) considers such butchery to be so ‘humane’, why doesn’t she place herself amongst the tens of thousands of grey-coated harp seals that will be slaughtered within the next few weeks? She could then test the humane aspect of having her head blown off for herself. Only then could she be thought to speak with any authority on the subject.” Canada Government Spokesperson Sophie Doucet "I would urge Mr. Morrissey to consider the impact that his ignorant and inflammatory statements have on the livelihoods of thousands of hard-working men and women in rural communities" Morrissey "I should remind Sophie Doucet that building and maintaining the Concentration Camps of Auschwitz also provided livelihoods, but this hardly made the Camps warranted.” Canada Government Spokesperson Sophie Doucet “Morrissey a millionaire celebrity, desperate for a hobby, shamelessly regurgitating misinformation” Morrissey “whether a challenge comes from a millionaire or from someone who is homeless is a remark that would only be made by someone of imperious ignorance, who cannot develop the moral debate, and whose own personal financial agenda comes before the lives of thousands of healthy beings,” “In Western culture, there is no acceptance of the Canadian seal slaughter, and simply because someone bears the badge of Minister does not insulate them from being a disreputable thug.” Canada Government Spokesperson Sophie Doucet Morrissey’s statements are “ignorant,” “Anyone who takes a careful look at the seal hunt will see that it is humane, sustainable, and well-regulated.” “Mr. Morrissey and his Hollywood buddies have been brainwashed by decades of propaganda from fringe animal rights groups and radical environmentalists.” Now waiting for the next volley from Morrissey

Without the action scenes and the cgi I doubt I would even find the least bit of joy in watching it. Even Cavill's handsome mug could not keep this overlong bore afloat. For the first half or so, there was a bit of background on Clark. What I keep thinking throughout all this is why does this guy need to help people so much. I know that is a great trait but when it puts your life at danger then why bother with it? Also, why does virtually every movie I watch that involves the supernatural involves protecting human beings. It really is an unnatural theme. Here you are something different than humans and because of your "differentness" you are persecuted. You turn out and help humans? Like for real? That's last thing I'd be doing. As well, why can't they kill off all people on earth and restart their race?! Who cares about humans? I mean we never cared about any of the extinct animals, we drove to their extinction. Lastly, I'm not white but is Henry Cavill really considered the epitome of white male beauty. To be honest, he is only really "beautiful" when he turns his head to certain angles. He's overall "meh". There are much better looking guys like Chris Evans or Gale Harold. This guy is not really that good-looking. And his chest hair is revolting.
Wow! The man looks good for 63. (Although the whole being an idiot thing sort of detracts from the package.)
So many favorite DL themes and stereotypes all rolled into one delicious story waiting for a feeding frenzy. Go at it, boys. A father was arrested and banned from seeing his daughter after a social worker falsely accused him of abusing the little girl. Jonathan Coupland, 53, was handcuffed in front of his neighbours, thrown in a cell and interrogated for ten hours after Suzi Smith claimed she saw him sexually assaulting his daughter Jessica, then six. The social worker is said to have made the allegation in a fit of pique after the single father criticised the way she was handling a custody battle with his former partner. Mrs Smith, 53, later retracted her claims and Mr Coupland has been paid £86,000 damages by her employer, the Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service (Cafcass). The public body - accountable to Justice Secretary Chris Grayling and funded by his department - has sacked Mrs Smith and apologised to Mr Coupland. But furious about his ordeal, the father-of-one has taken the matter to court, pushing for Mrs Smith to be prosecuted for misconduct in a public office. He is also taking action against the police for false arrest and false imprisonment. Last night, he told the Daily Mail: ‘I was manhandled by three policemen and dragged out of my house in handcuffs. ‘It was humiliating. My neighbours saw and parents at Jessica’s school turned on me. ‘It was a completely false story of lies but my daughter could have been fostered and I could now be in a paedophile wing of a major prison because of this social worker. I won’t rest until she faces justice for what she has done.’ Former painter and decorator Mr Coupland has raised his eight-year-old daughter alone. Jessica’s Thai mother, Kajchi Jiraekkaphob is an illegal immigrant. He was granted custody shortly after Jessica was born in December 2005 but Miss Jiraekkaphob fought him through the courts for seven and a half years. Cafcass worker Mrs Smith became involved in January 2012, when she visited the family at home in Spalding, Lincolnshire. Mr Coupland claims her initial report, read out during a custody hearing the following week, was glowing. But four months later, she reported Mr Coupland to the police, saying she saw him touch his daughter inappropriately. Mr Coupland believes she did this because he had accused her of acting unprofessionally by contacting one of his character witnesses during the custody proceedings – and he had asked for her to be removed from the case. The father was arrested at his home a week later, on suspicion of sexual assault. He was handcuffed and dragged into a police car in front of neighbours, put into cells and interrogated for around ten hours. His daughter was visited at her school by social services and interviewed by police. Officers told Mr Coupland that Jessica would be put into temporary care but he begged them to allow her to stay with her grandmother. He was bailed but told he could not contact his daughter at his mother’s home. A day later, police said they were taking no further action against him as Mrs Smith had retracted her allegation. He reported the social worker to police and she was interviewed, but the CPS decided not to take action against her. Mr Coupland, who has finally seen off custody challenges from his former partner, plans to contest the decision not to prosecute Mrs Smith at the High Court. She was sacked by Cafcass, the largest employer of social workers in England, for gross misconduct, but only left work six months after making the false allegation. Mr Coupland said: ‘In the meantime she was still working in the courts, affecting children’s lives... It is disturbing that this person is paid to look after the welfare of children. She has done the opposite and got away with it.’ He said he is still viewed with suspicion by other parents at his daughter’s school and that many will not allow Jessica to visit their children at home.

Or pouring as much of herself into the role as Ellen did? I can't imagine her wanting to be thrown to the ground like Ellen did, literally breaking her ass. I'm sure a stunt double would have been used. She probably also would have objected to the ice cold temperature on the set.

We were better off when we were just the gay rights movement and none of these other freaks were parasitically piggybacking off of us to get rights for themselves. We would have gotten our rights 30 years ago if it hadn't been for bisexuals and transgenders, the real self-loathers in our community. Bisexuals are self-loathing because they add fuel to the fire of homophobia, mainly their own. Why else do they usually marry the opposite sex while screwing the same sex on the side? And Tom Daley was never, ever bi. Anyone who believes that probably also still believes in Santa Claus. Transgenders are some of the biggest homophobes I've ever met. Just because you're gay and your Gender Identity Disorder is so severe, it causes you to want to mutilate your body in order to conform to heteronormative standards, it does not give you the right to make the homophobic and vaguely racist comments you made about RuPaul. These two groups have been a pair of albatrosses around our collective necks for decades, and it's time we took them off.

Michael Phelps heads back to competitive swimming in Arizona • The American has not raced since London 2012 • 28-year-old Phelps returned to training last autumn Press Association; The Guardian, Wednesday 23 April 2014 10.44 EDT Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, will make his return to competitive swimming on Thursday. The American, whose 22 Olympic medals include 18 golds, has not raced since London 2012 but he is among a strong entry for the Arena Grand Prix in Mesa, Arizona, where the 28-year-old is likely to be joined by his fellow Olympic medallists Ryan Lochte and Katie Ledecky. The three-day meeting has attracted more than 500 swimmers, including almost 50 members of the United States team. Phelps has not yet revealed whether he intends to put himself in the mix for the Olympics in Rio in 2016, and there are many who feel he will struggle to rediscover his form that made him swimming's hottest property. Phelps' four London golds followed an unprecedented eight gold medals in Beijing four years before – where he broke Mark Spitz's individual record medal haul for a single Games – and six in the Athens Olympics. He has entered three races in Mesa – the 100m freestyle, 100m butterfly and 50m freestyle. Top of his agenda if Phelps has serious competitive intentions this year will be the US championships in August, which also doubles up as the 2015 world championships trials. He returned to training last autumn, working throughout the week with his coach, Bob Bowman, at the North Baltimore Aquatic Club. Speaking recently, Bowman said Phelps was "pretty far" from being back in top form but backed him to perform competitively in Mesa.
Vatican City (AFP) - Pope Francis's habit of picking up the phone and cold calling people who write to him is landing the Vatican in hot water and spokesman Federico Lombardi has had enough. Lombardi said on Thursday the calls were part of the pope's "personal pastoral relationships" and "do not in any way form a part of the pope's public activities". The spokesman said media reports about the phone calls have been "a source of misunderstanding and confusion". "Consequences relating to the teaching of the Church are not to be inferred from these occurrences," he said. The statement follows reports about a phone call that Francis apparently made to a woman in Argentina who had complained her parish priest would not grant her Holy Communion because she had divorced and remarried. Francis was quoted by the woman's husband as saying that the issue was being "looked at" in the Vatican and that divorcees who take Holy Communion "are doing nothing bad". Catholic rules currently ban divorcees from taking Holy Communion, the spiritual high point of the mass, although the doctrine is in practice widely flouted by parishes. The pope has previously been reported making calls from the practical to the intense, including calling his newsagent in Buenos Aires to cancel a subscription and comforting a mother grieving over her murdered daughter. The Vatican rarely makes official comment on reports of the calls, which often rely solely on the person in question saying that they have been called by the pope -- who has been dubbed "the cold call pope" by the tabloids.

The New York Police Department attempted to harness Twitter to drum up support today, but things haven't exactly gone as planned. Earlier today, the official NYPD Twitter account asked followers to tweet photos of themselves with NYC police officers under the hashtag #myNYPD — but so far, many users have jumped on that hashtag to flood it with images of police aggressively apprehending apparent suspects. So far, these are hardly the friendly images the NYPD was hoping for.

Last week everyone was talking about James Franco’s new show at Pace for which he had recreated Cindy Sherman’s “Film Stills” and (obviously) casted himself in the title role. Now, even art critic Roberta Smith has spoken out to condemn Franco’s antics in a scathing review for the Times. “The deep content here, beneath the entitled narcissism, is a confused desperation that seems to drive Mr. Franco’s pursuit of visual art,” Smith writes. “It’s hard not to feel some sympathy for him, while also wishing that someone or something would make him stop.” (ArtInfo via NYT)

[bold]...and secret history of ruthlessly intimidating workers [/bold] You might find your Prime membership morally indefensible after reading these stories about worker mistreatment ~ Simon Head, 02/24/14 [italic] Excerpted from "Mindless: Why Smarter Machines Are Making Dumber Humans"[/italic] When I first did research on Walmart’s workplace practices in the early 2000s, I came away convinced that Walmart was the most egregiously ruthless corporation in America. However, ten years later, there is a strong challenger for this dubious distinction—Amazon Corporation. Within the corporate world, Amazon now ranks with Apple as among the United States’ most esteemed businesses. Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s founder and CEO, came in second in the Harvard Business Review’s 2012 world rankings of admired CEOs, and Amazon was third in CNN’s 2012 list of the world’s most admired companies. Amazon is now a leading global seller not only of books but also of music and movie DVDs, video games, gift cards, cell phones, and magazine subscriptions. Like Walmart itself, Amazon combines state-of-the-art CBSs with human resource practices reminiscent of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Amazon equals Walmart in the use of monitoring technologies to track the minute-by-minute movements and performance of employees and in settings that go beyond the assembly line to include their movement between loading and unloading docks, between packing and unpacking stations, and to and from the miles of shelving at what Amazon calls its “fulfillment centers”—gigantic warehouses where goods ordered by Amazon’s online customers are sent by manufacturers and wholesalers, there to be shelved, packaged, and sent out again to the Amazon customer. Amazon’s shop-floor processes are an extreme variant of Taylorism that Frederick Winslow Taylor himself, a near century after his death, would have no trouble recognizing. With this twenty-first-century Taylorism, management experts, scientific managers, take the basic workplace tasks at Amazon, such as the movement, shelving, and packaging of goods, and break down these tasks into their subtasks, usually measured in seconds; then rely on time and motion studies to find the fastest way to perform each subtask; and then reassemble the subtasks and make this “one best way” the process that employees must follow. Amazon is also a truly global corporation in a way that Walmart has never been, and this globalism provides insights into how Amazon responds to workplaces beyond the United States that can follow different rules. In the past three years, the harsh side of Amazon has come to light in the United Kingdom and Germany as well as the United States, and Amazon’s contrasting conduct in America and Britain, on one side, and in Germany, on the other, reveals how the political economy of Germany is employee friendly in a way that those of the other two countries no longer are.
The Jim Brown thread got me to thinking about the various celebrities who showed us some skin in the magazine's hey day. Who was your favorite?
Thanks to MeTV, this has become my favorite night of TV viewing. I've discovered some gems that are now but a memory for most people. At 10pm, they show Boris Karloff's "Thriller" anthology series. Some of the episodes are hit and miss (mostly hit), but for the most part the stories are really well told and suspenseful. After that, they have back to back episodes of "Twilight Zone" followed by "The Fugitive" at midnight. "The Fugitive" was before my time, but I'd always heard great things about it. The show definitely lives up to the hype and has a great '60s vibe to it. You'd think the writers wouldn't have been able to milk several seasons out of one plot, but they were clever enough to create self-contained episodes with engrossing stories featuring guest stars, while weaving in Kimble's storyline. Then at 1am comes the incredible cop show "The Naked City." Although I could see some viewers deeming it somewhat stagy, pretentious, and slow-moving, it's really an incredibly written and acted show. Very gritty and intelligent, with episodes that are more like character studies rather than plot heaped upon plot. Again, the episodes can be slow moving, with long scenes that develop character rather than advance the plot, but the payoffs are more organic and much more satisfying because of this. The show features top-line guest stars like Robert Duvall, Maureen Stapleton, and Barbara Barrie. The only downside of these shows is that there's no one at work to discuss these shows with at the "water cooler," so to speak. If you don't watch Real Housewives, Mob Wives, Shahs of Sunset, or those Kardashians religiously, then you're left out of the "water cooler" conversation. A couple of people asked me what I watch on TV, and I mentioned these shows, Perry Mason, and Alfred Hitchcock. They looked at me like I had three heads with one eye in the middle of each.

You can't give them honest advice, because the truth is painful, and everyone will think that you are an ass. My Coworker has been angrily eating chocolate today, and whining about her boyfriend who cheated. She hasn't talked to the guy in weeks, and he hasn't returned her phone calls. She reactivated her Facebook account to spy on him, and he has a bunch of photos with another woman. She went to his house to confront him about his 'cheating' and he called her psycho and told her to leave. Everyone is kissing her ass, telling her how sorry they are, and telling her that he is a jerk. The truth is that they have only dated for a few months, and she hasn't talked to him in weeks. He moved on a long time ago. He didn't cheat if they weren't even in a relationship, and if he thought that they were together, he wouldn't have the photos all over the internet.
Is the black guy with the balloon his boyfriend?
The man who tried to kill president Ronald Reagan may have his free time increased. Some people actually think he may get a full release at some point. What do you think? Can a person who gets so obsessed over a movie star ever be cured? Or, will he revert when he is no longer monitored?
I didn't know that this was humanly possible; but after researching it's actually pretty common! I'm still not buying it though. -30 degrees, low oxygen levels...I think he hid in the cargo section or something. Top notch security that we have here, eh?

When you watch a TV show (usually a drama) from the 70s and early 80s, the wait staff are usually dressed like they're prostitutes. Hot pants, halter tops, cleavage. I'm not talking about men's clubs, just portrayals of regular restaurants on nighttime dramas. "It's a Living" had the waitresses in tight shirts the first season and when it returned for a seocnd season, the outfits were more modest. Was it really like this?

Seriously, just fuck them. I hope every single person who works for them has to watch their closest loved ones crushed beneath an overturned vehicle. That is all.
maxi pads were for women with big cunts and mini pads were for women with small cunts. I always felt bad for women with medium sized cunts and thought they needed a voice.
Four Hasidic Jews have been arrested for attacking a 22-year-old gay man in Williamsburg last December. The New York Daily News reports that two of the four suspects had fled to Israel. All four are expected to be arraigned on Wednesday, and more suspects will likely be arrested in the coming days. Early December 1, Taj Patterson was attacked as he walked home from a party in Williamsburg. Patterson said he was jumped by about 20 Hasidic men, who allegedly yelled anti-gay slurs—"Stay down, faggot!"—as they beat him. "I'm walking down some block by myself and then the next thing I know, I'm surrounded by a group of Hasidic Jewish men and they're attacking me," Patterson told Gothamist in December. "I was alone. I was an easy target. I'm black. I'm gay, a whole slew of reasons." Based on witnesses' accounts of their clothes, the assailants may have belonged to Williamsburg Shomrim, a Hasidic neighborhood watch group. After the attack Patterson was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for a broken eye socket, a torn retina, and blood clotting. UPDATE 4:25 pm: From the New York Daily News: Aharon Hollender, 28, Abraham Winkler, 39, Mayer Herskovic, 21, and Joseph Fried, 25, were charged with gang assault and other counts, but not with any hate crimes, sources said Wednesday. "I would point out that the department, from the very beginning, very aggressively investigated that crime as a very serious crime with incredibly serious injuries caused to the victim," said Police Commissioner Bill Bratton.
I like all of these guys
Did she really have a nosejob? Was her voice naturally deep or was that from smoking? Who would be her equivalent today?
Is he the new Cody Cummings ?
Say you live in the heartland. And you want to throw a festive, fancy party to celebrate your nuptials. And say you met with an event planner at your house to see whether they were a good match for this project. And say they came back with a bid of $29,000 flat-fee all inclusive for a 4-hour heavy appetizers, open bar party for approx. 70 people. Would that be an outrageous amount, or in the ballpark of 'reasonable'? Anyone??

They know who's hung and who isn't, girlfriend.
That special moment when a gay guy tells a woman that he likes pole- not hole. The laughter, the tears, the hugs..
About the sleeve length... should it be short enough to show a cufflink?
[quote]When he’s working in New York, he shares his apartment downtown with his personal assistant, Spencer Soloman, a 38-year-old former dancer and camera man, who became close with Radcliffe’s family when he was teaching the actor to dance for “How to Succeed.” Soloman and Sam [i.e. his hunky bodyguard, pictured at link] function, in some ways, like older brothers: fun, but responsible and organized. Soloman plans Radcliffe’s schedule and talks to his father, agents and publicists two or three times a day; he might tell Radcliffe when he needs to shave for a photo shoot or search their apartment for a garment that his stylist wants him to wear for some occasion.
Someone briefly explain what those bitches are talking about in that thread. Thanks. I don't have time to read all of that.
1. They know how to take a break from the stresses of daily life. 2. They drink to their health--coffee, that is. 3. They've been blessed by Aphrodite. 4. Their diet is heart-healthy. 5. Family is everything.
The Following starring Kevin Bacon started tonight on Fox. He plays a former FBI agent. James Purefoy stars as a killer. It is being called a psychological drama.
In industrial cities like New York, Boston, Chicago. Was gay sex easy to be had back then? The hats and suspenders look was hot.
Please take my poll.
I'm not as knowledgeable as I should be, but it seems like all those adorable Czech boys are cut. Is that common in the former Eastern Bloc?
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?
Daymn! Hung too.
French Macarons are better.
A British celeb with a cut cock. She was surprised because she assumed he was uncut. Go to the 16-17 minute mark.
Anybody watch it? I remember my dad addictively watching the original Cosmos and I love anything that brings knowledge of science and history to the masses. I enjoyed the first episode, though I thought the "spaceship" was kinda silly. The CGI effects and animation were terrific, Neil is a great host and I love that, right out of the gate, it tells religion to stuff it.
The victim's funeral is today & I just can't stop thinking about how disturbing this thing is...
With al that precautions nowadays and whatnot, honestly: how many different guys do you have sex with in a given year?
No question about it. He was stroking my inner thigh and telling me how the boys in Kenya like to sleep together. It would have been my first gay sex, but I ran like a scared bunny rabbit. Worse thing about it is that I ended up with a five hour C in what could just as easily been an undeserved A. Thinking back, I wish now I had gone ahead. I mean he was sooo black.
How's the new HTC One M8?
I loved it, will def. be watching the whole season. Anyone else watch?
Take my poll. Hope it works for once.
This show is going for ATL-style ratchet. Radziwill WROTE her book. She spent 3 decades writing copy for ABC News. There is no question she can string a few words together on her own. Aviva's stupid-ass has never done anything except birth some babies and have anxiety attacks. Any nitwit knows the difference between a ghostwriter and an editor or proofreader. That bitch was on TV slandering Radziwill, telling folks that after 30 years of being a professional writer she used a ghostwriter to write a f*cking MEMOIR (??!!) If I were Princess Carole -- and not obviously suffering the effects of anorexic wasting disease -- I would have sailed across that sofa onto Aviva and beat her ass so hard and savagely that her prosthetic leg would have been the only evidence that she ever existed. Aviva IS a fucking psycho! The show has gone completely beyond the pale. I can't wait for Heather the stomp the sh*t out of Aviva's freaky sycophant, Elphaba or whatever.

Okay granted I am not from the south but is it typical for late forties and early fifties men to social friends with 20-30 somethings? Case #1 Thomas Ravenel who is 51 years old, been indicted for selling cocaine and forced to step down as state treasurer now wants to run for congress as a "Libertarian"." Episode two showed a picture of his father with a very large confederate flag draped across the steps of the state capitol. Racist much? Case #2 Whitney Sudler Smith - 41 year old "film maker" who lives with his mother. The rest of the cast seem in the late 20's to early 30's. Thomas seems to think he is quite the stud man about town....given he is handsome and rich he is also racist and vile.
There’s a boy band battle brewing! Joey Fatone from *NYSYNC was recently on Huffington Post and claimed that the Backstreet Boys are going back on tour because, “they just need the money.” “I feel like they just need the money,” he explained. “No offense, guys. But I’m saying if you think about it, it’s like, why are you coming back out again?” He added that *NYSYNC are too busy with “their own lives,” and “doing their own thing,” which would make a reunion tour difficult. According to Rob Shuter of VH-1’s “The Gossip Table” this theorizing didn’t sit well with Nick Carter from Backstreet Boys who sent off a flurry of tweets including one that read, “I’m proud of who we are and love what we stand for. Truthfully its about not letting our fans down. Sorry bro but you have us all wrong.” Another tweet read, “Now let me go back to enjoying my honeymoon.” Carter married Lauren Kitt last weekend in Santa Barbara with a Moroccan-inspired theme.
American dream fades as data shows middle classes falling behind Canadian counterparts By Rosa Prince, New York 4:17PM BST 23 Apr 2014 Middle-class Americans have lost their status as the most prosperous in the world, a study has found, shattering the myth of the US dream of prosperity and opportunity. For the first time in 40 years, a person on median income in America is less well-off than one in Canada, which has over taken the US as the best place in the world to be middle class. The data, published by the New York Times, shows that median incomes – those in the 50th percentile in wealth terms – are falling in the US compared to international competitors despite relatively strong economic growth. The disparity is explained by the fact that the richest five per cent of Americans remain by far the most affluent in the world. In contrast, the poorest five per cent are worse off in the US than in many other countries in the developed world, including Canada, Sweden, Norway, Finland and the Netherlands, all of which were behind America in poverty terms in the 1980s.
I just got off the phone with my mom, who is a teacher at a local private school. She has told me before about an autistic kid in her class who has threatened to kill her. So today she's all casual and says "oh, remember that autistic kid who threatened to kill me?" and I said "of course" and she said "today he threw a water bottle at me and called me a whore". Its crazy, the kid gets in trouble but his parents think he walks on water. They totally thought the threats were my mom's fault for instigating him or just making up lies about their son. Thank god she's close to retirement.
Has anyone ever seen the hardcore porn video by this German rock group for their song "Pussy"? It's hot, they're hot, and it's really them in the hardcore scenes.
After all she was, and still is, the number one musical performer in the world. Shoot Babs singing five songs and you have a hit movie. So why didn't the producers approach her. Anyone know?
What a whirlwind couple of weeks for our heroes Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, who are steadfastly determined to remain not pregnant and not a couple, despite all the hard evidence presented by the brain trust at HKN's Haven. Sure, RPattz was seen at Coachella with Katy Perry while KStew was drinking Coors Light and smoking a bowl in a NOLA park, but like the brain trust says, beer and pot are just super great for fetuses, and KStew [italic]was[/italic] at Coachella but had magical powers that prevented cameras from taking photos within a 100-yard radius. Or something. Now that our delightful duo are headed to Cannes, the Havenettes are sure this is a sign from D-list Celebrity Heaven that the pair were meant to be together forever. Oh, and there's still little Burrito Sweetpea Pattinson on the way, sometime in April. Or May. Maybe June. Possibly July. How long do humans gestate, again? Join in as we discuss KStew and RPattz, the Havenettes, and their completely and totally sane behavior.
Disclaimer: I usually avoid using slurs of any kind, but for the sake of getting this point across, I'm abandoning that for this blog post. Please do not take offense. There's a conversation happening right now that's long overdue. With growing tensions between the LGB and T components of our community, we are doing little to bridge the gap -- quite the opposite in fact. Instead of binding together to respect one another's viewpoints and have a meaningful discussion about language in our culture, we're jumping on the defense every chance we get -- further hurting the historic bond we have. It has to stop. Gay men: Telling trans people to stop being so touchy and sensitive over language is wrong. For too long they've stood in the dark supporting you for your fight for marriage equality and protections under the law, while you make little attempt to understand their struggles. Why are you jumping to assume this is a new sensitivity or cry for attention? Why aren't you attempting to understand that MAYBE the trans community finally feels like it has enough clout in our society to speak up for themselves? Why are we trying to stifle that and treat them as if their opinions and feelings don't matter? Was there ever a time you walked by a group of straight dudes in high school, calling one another faggots and a little piece of you died inside? It doesn't matter to you that those guys take pleasure in using the word because to you -- it sucks. THAT's what it feels like to trans men and women when you throw around "tranny," like Rhianna's new single. You may use it as a term of endearment, but to others it hurts. And rather than get defensive over using it, maybe we should start exhibiting some compassion and understand how others are affected. Maybe you weren't negatively affected by the word "faggot." I'm happy for you, but there are people who have, so maybe take a moment to understand someone else's experience. Non-trans drag queens: You are not trans. You don't get to throw around hateful terms, either, even if you feel you're reclaiming the word. It's not yours to reclaim. There are women who get beaten by their boyfriends or random strangers, left for dead, where tranny is the last word they hear. It's not a word that represents frivolity and flamboyance or whatever you want it to mean. It's not a joke, and trans people aren't a spectacle. When someone tells you they're offended by your language, instead of jumping to defend your free speech, take a moment to educate yourself on why it means so much to this person that you change your behavior. It's time we start considering each other's stories before assuming our own experiences trump those of others. RuPaul is a poor representative of this ideal. It's one thing to take pride in a term that may hurt other people, but it's another to blatantly fight the understanding of and compassion for those who are negatively affected by it. Trans people: Please understand that there are cisgender gay men who are on your side, and please continue to have this dialogue. I understand you're frustrated, hurt, annoyed, angry, etc. on how you've been treated, and for me to ask patience of you is probably insensitive, but I do ask that you help us be better allies by calmly and eloquently continuing to call us out. Continue to let us know when our words, behaviors and micro-aggressions get to you, but please forgive those of us who make mistakes unknowingly as we work to change our language and understandings to reflect yours. Please don't assume all gay men are ignorant fools, and please -- no more rebuttals beginning with: "Easy for you, cisgender white men of privilege to say..." it doesn't promote healthy discussions either. Being an ally is a constant process of empathy and understanding, and trust me, we will make mistakes -- but it doesn't make us bad people. We have made tremendous strides as a community together. We often think of the Stonewall riots as a momentous time in gay activism, and in many ways it was, but we can't forget that it was a collaborative effort led by LGBT people across the board. People like Sylvia Rivera -- a trans bisexual woman, helped make this happen. In our alienation of our taboo lifestyles, we bound together and created a movement. What happened? At what point did we stop considering the contributions and experiences of others outside of our own? When did arrogance and defensiveness take over our inclination for empathy? Finding middle ground in a community as diverse, artistic, and expressionistic as ours is tough. BUT what we CAN do is respect one another and educate ourselves on how words affect us. It's high time compassion and authenticity and an attempt to understand one another be our goals in this fight for equality. Who knows? Maybe it could be the beginnings of a real revolution.
Lupita Nyong’o has been chosen as the prestigious cover girl for People‘s Most Beautiful issue! Here’s what the 12 Years a Slave Oscar winner had to share with the mag: On being named People‘s Most Beautiful: “It was exciting and just a major, major compliment. I was happy for all the girls who would see me on it and feel a little more seen.” On what she used to think ideal beauty was: “Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair. Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess.” On her favorite thing: “When I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on. And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress. Happiness is the most important thing.” Also making People’s Most Beautiful list are Keri Russel, Jenna Dewan, Mindy Kaling, Pink, Amber Heard, Gabrielle Union, Molly Sims, Stacy Keibler, and Kerry Washington.
I have been waiting for him to release dirt on her, because there is a new story about his infidelities every week. Apparently, Tori has been using pain pills to curb her appetite, and mixing them with wine. The story also makes her look like a shitty parent, who just parks the kids in front of a tv 24/7, while Dean does all of the housework. This is going to get ugly fast.
my eyes!!! the face!!!!
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?
Let's recall the 1984 Best Actress Race where three of the Best Actresses were fighting to save their land!!!!
I just watched this version of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" with Jessica Lange. I know it's been discussed here before, so I thought I'd provide a link. I've always enjoyed David Dukes' work. It was good to see him. For people used to the film version, this one is a tad different.
Continue your foolishness.
...go after young man for spreading chlamydia. Just wow!
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Postal Service on Monday unveiled the image for its new stamp honoring Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected official to be featured on a U.S. stamp. The image is based on a 1977 black and white photograph of Milk at his Castro Street Camera store in San Francisco, according to the Postal Service. The original photo was taken by Daniel Nicoletta of Grants Pass, Ore., and Antonio Alcala of Alexandria, Va., was the art director for the stamp. Milk first made history in 1977, when he became one of the first openly gay elected officials in the United States. He was assassinated shortly after winning a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. During his 11 months in office, at a time when the gay and lesbian community was encountering widespread hostility and discrimination, Milk passed a stringent gay rights ordinance for the city. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama in 2009, and he was also the subject of a 2008 Academy Award-winning biopic starring Sean Penn, called "Milk." The official first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony for Milk's stamp will take place at the White House on May 22, which is known as Harvey Milk Day in California. A public dedication ceremony will also take place in San Francisco on May 28. Harvey Milk stamps can be ordered via the Postal Service.
Anyome else see it? Apparently we're passing through a meteor shower
First day of summer and Moi feels pretty!!!!!
Who's had him?
Billionaire gaming mogul...married and closeted. Impresses his wife's naïve, pretty, small town nephew. Pays for college and takes him on expensive vacations. Hooks up with nephew at Billionaire's luxury apartment in the city. Boy ends up dead, did he jump from apartment balcony out of guilt...or was he pushed? Has this already been done?
Do they know that most of the books have had his penis inside them?

'American Idol' alum David Archuleta was spotted at a gay club in New York Saturday night, and when reports surfaced he started tweeting frantically that he was only there to watch his friend perform. David, 19, said in 2008 that he had never been kissed and he had no celebrity crush. He tweeted on Monday: "Hey guys just wanted to clear something up real quick lol. Last night in New York I got invited to go and see my friend Charice perform.." "Mental note to self: always ask where before you go! Wasn't my kind of place lol, and I had no clue! I guess you live and learn. The.." "upside was that Charice was awesome, and she has an incredible voice. Hope that clears things up! Been seeing some of the tweets.. sheesh!" "Can get crazy quick. NO worries all, I wouldn't get into things like that intentionally haha. Hope you guys have a good Sunday!" "@hamghost I have friends who are gay, and they're great people. Whether they're gay or not doesn't change how I think of them." "@hamghost I have nothing against anyone, I'm sorry if that's how it came across. I'm just not into the partying scene lol."
Where is the line that differentiates doing what's right and being a sap for not playing the game?
The Savory Pie thread reminded me of how much I just love little pug dogs. I realize they're "ugly" to some people. But they must be the sweetest little critters on Earth. I've never met one that isn't a sweetheart, who doesn't crave being cuddled but also who loves to bounce and play. They're happy little dogs, always happy, even if the famous face doesn't show it. No doubt many dog breeds fit this description but for me, my heart goes soft at the sight of a pug. Anybody here have one?

Some reviews mention this, but others don't, so I don't know if this is supposed to be a major plot revelation on the film. It was covered in articles when the book came out (see below.) He grew up to be a top Reagan and Bush I administration lawyer, responsible for among other things, gerrymandering. But he was also gay, and dying of AIDS. Are you able to have sympathy for such a person?
Another thread got me thinking. Seems every time we bring any of the current crop up (Jonas Bros, Miley, etc) there''s something sordid going on. What secrets has Disney tried/is trying to cover up for the sake of a clean cut image?
So fucking hot
What's her story?
When I first started working here and would overhear her on the phone with him(she talks to him ever day, usually more than once), I thought she was talking to her husband or boyfriend. She calls him her "sweet, sweet muffin" and makes smooching sounds into the phone. Frequently, she'll talk about how she can't wait to see him over the weekend. She has a picture of the two of them on the beach on her desk, her in a very tight fitting swimsuit with her big tits pressed up against him. He looks a bit uncomfortable. The man is 35, and she is in her 50s. She's been divorced from his father for decades and has hardly ever mentioned him. The son has never been married, but occasionally gets a girlfriend, which never fails to put his mother in a foul mood for months. She'll talk about nothing but what a bitch the girlfriend du jour is, and how she monopolizes all her son's time, and how bored and starved for attention she is. Then she'll gleefully announce that he's broken up with the girl and that she has her "baby" back. He sends her red roses on Valentines Day if he doesn't have a girlfriend at the time. Once he came to the office to deliver them to her. He kissed her on the lips, and she held the kiss longer than he seemed comfortable with. She pinched his ass as he left, and spent the rest of the day asking all the girls if they were jealous of her because her son was such a hunk, and didn't they wish they could have him? The whole thing is disgusting.
Would go ballistic on her Sherman Oaks apartment neighbor every time the woman had the audicity to TURN ON HER BLENDER!

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s marriage isn’t the only area of her life that’s in shambles. Just days after the CEO of her lifestyle company, GOOP, announced his unexpected departure, RadarOnline.com has uncovered disturbing corporate filings that reveal the company’s dire financial state: For two years running, they racked up serious losses totaling more than $300,000 — thanks in part to an interest-free loan Paltrow took from the company coffers! According to the most recent corporate documentation filed with the Companies House in the U.K., in 2011, GOOP “incurred a loss of $255,312 (£152,060) and had a net liabilities of $259,969 (£154,834).” And in 2012, they reported “a loss of $39,823 (£23,718) and … net liabilities of $298,512 (£177,788).” It’s not that GOOP wasn’t making money. In fact, in 2012, they raked in more than $1.5 million (£908,378), thanks in part to $463,486 (£276,040) in product sales, as well as an impressive (£222,243) from Groupon promotions and $373,159 in commissions. All told, the company made $1,893,065 (£1,127,456). But that same year, GOOP spent $98,150 (£58,456) on Goop.com, $79,961 (£47,623) on the notorious GOOP newsletter, $189,590 (£112,918) on product costs, and a whopping $1,564,995 (£932,096) in administrative expenses,” adding up to the grand profit total of a loss of $39,823 (£23,718). Chief among those “administrative expenses” were Paltrow and CEO Sebastian Bishop’s “renumeration,” or salaries, for which the company allotted $587,653.25 (£350,000), a sizable increase from the previous year’s figure of $172,585 (£102,788), despite the company’s losses. The documents also show that in 2012, both Paltrow and Bishop were the recipient of interest-free “loans to directors,” with Paltrow’s listed at a balance of $49,025 (£29,200), of which none was paid back, and Bishop’s at $83,617 (£49,800). Other expenses in 2012 included $456,007 (£271,584) in other wages, $34,507 (£20,551) on travel, nearly $4,000 (£2,118) on “Entertaining,” and nearly $5,000 (£2,951) on “Staff Entertainment.” All told, the expenses swallowed up the entire $1.8 million profit for the year and then some, resulting in a loss of $39,823. Paltrow and Bishop’s report had an excuse, insisting, “As the company started product sales in June 2012, the directors are of the opinion that predicted profits will provide sufficient resources to enable the company to continue trading for the foreseeable future.” The continued existence of GOOP, it seems, would depend upon it, since the report noted that in addition to the losses, the company owed creditors more than $1.2 million (£722,111), all of which would come due by the end of 2013.

I miss seeing thick Matthew. He recently said that he's not back at his pre-DBC weight and that he's in no hurry to get there, but a world without a meaty, bubble-butted MM is just a tad less sexy.
Why isn't he more famous/popular in the gay community? He literally broke the mold in regards to a man's physical appearance in movies in the 1950s. His body still looks great even by today's standards. He was a God amongst men.
and no one seems to mind since she's so damn hot!
Fall and hits his head trying to light a cigarette.
No, this isn't a cause and effect thing, I KNOW one didn't cause the other, just a funny story. I've never been able to really get a lot of cock down before, but this new guy I'm with is larger than anyone else I've been with. I don't know why, but I am able to get him pretty far in, I'm guessing it may be related to the fact that the largest part is now past my gag reflex? Or maybe your gag reflex gets weaker with age (I'm 37)? Who knows. I was still very proud of myself. Anyway - that was this past weekend. And Monday, and Tuesday. Wednesday I start to feel kinda sick, throat sore, etc. Thursday I wake up with a fever, a really painful sore throat/neck, and those disgusting white bumps in my throat. My primary dr's right by my office, so I went by, just to make sure it wasn't strep. His first question to me was "what were you doing this past weekend?" I stammered something about not getting a lot of sleep, and he went on to tell me it's not strep (he'd done one of those quick culture thingys), just a bad infection and a fever, and to take it easy for a few days. No work today, no leaving the house for 48 hours. I think the whole thing is hysterical, and also comically embarrassing. So...embarrassing blow job stories/after effects? Share, I'm stuck at home sick and bored.

The New York Post reached new lows publishing "an open letter to Chelsea Clinton's fetus" -- rather than simply reporting on Clinton's recently announced pregnancy or offering the couple well-wishes, the Post took the opportunity to attack the new baby and soon-to-be grandparents Bill and Hillary Clinton under the guise of "news." The April 22 letter told the baby that "what makes you so special" is "you're going to live your whole life in make-believe." The Post labeled the child a "campaign asset" and "stage prop" for "Lady Pantsuit" and non-"maternal" Hillary Clinton: Welcome to advanced gestation! Since you're new around here, I thought you'd like to know a little bit about what makes you so special. The reason is, you're going to live your whole life in make-believe! [...] In two years or so, when most babies are just learning to crawl, you will be hitting the road! Grandma Hillary is going to need you to smile and coo whenever there are Sunshine Men around. So play nice and don't projectile vomit. Grandma is not what grown-ups call "maternal," and was busy turning $1000 into $100,000 in the magical cow trading market when your mommy was a baby, so she will have to make believe she is really "helping out" with you. No crying if she gets the diaper on the wrong end! [...] The best part of your make-believe Clinton-Mezvinsky life is that people will pretend you're good at things and give you gifts like high-paying consultancy gigs when you just got out of college, jobs reporting for NBC News when you have as much camera-awareness as a smoked flounder, and the leadership of the free world because you "deserve it." UPDATE: Sometime after the publication of this blog, the New York Post altered its headline to "An open letter to Chelsea Clinton's unborn child." The Post promoted its story on Facebook and Twitter under the original headline before changing it: "An Open Letter to Chelsea Clinton's Unborn Fetus"
Holy shit. She looks ... good, actually.
I was reading an old Rolling Stone at my parents' house, with a fascinating article about a cheerleader named Kirsten Costas who was stabbed to death by another girl, who was panicked that Costas might mock her at school the next day. It sounded like the other girl had been trying to break the ice with Costas (or possibly confess feelings) and freaked out when it went wrong. It was a really well written article and made me wonder if the writer of "Heathers" drew inspiration from the case. (All of Costas' friends seem to have been named Stacy and Costas herself seemed like a Heather. A friend is quoted in the article saying "She was only mean to people that she didn't like.") Anyone remember this case?

Married lesbian trio from Massachusetts expecting first child together Three women and a baby! A married lesbian trio from Mass. is expecting its first child. Brynn, Doll and Kitten Young - who claim to the only "throuple" in the world - are expecting their newborn in just 3 months time. Doll, 30, and Brynn, 32, had been together for 2-and-a-half years when they decided to spice up their relationship with an additional partner. Smitten after meeting Kitten, 27, through a threesomes' website, they decided to tie the knot to each other last August. And, after undergoing IVF with an unknown sperm donor, the youngest of the group is now with child."The three of us have always wanted kids and wanted to grow our family," Kitten, who like Doll took IT expert Brynn's surname because she is the main breadwinner. We decided that I'd be the one to carry the babies because I'd like to be a full-time mom," she added. Massachusetts became, in 2004, the first state to legalize same-sex marriage. It does not allow polygamy, however, meaning the trio's marriage is not officially recognized. Despite this, they claim their union is the real deal."In our eyes we are married. We had specialist lawyers draw up paperwork so our assets are equally divided," said Brynn. "I cried watching Doll and Kitten walk down the aisle towards me with their dads. After we said our vows, Doll and Kitten kissed me first then each other," she added. The trio share a bed and have sex together as well as in pairs, with Brynn working a 40-hour week to bring home the money, Doll doing the cooking and Kitten the cleaning.

Look at the photo in the middle of the page of Wynn, Wynn's trophy wife Andrea, and Clooney. What the fuck is wrong with Wynn's head? It's literally about twice as large it should be. Also: does he really think he's fooling anyone with that horrible henna rinse?
Forget whether it's a good representation of teh gays, or a decent comedy. Just tell me who the fuck they're supposed to be talking to when they talk to the camera a la shows like The Office which have the conceit of a documentary crew following them around. The problem is that no documentary crew is ever seen or referred to on Modern Family; we've seen the characters in bed, and fighting, and doing tons of things you'd never do if you knew there was a camera present, yet there are these cutaways where they are talking directly to the audience as if they are being interviewed. The conceit itself is rather tired now that it's done so often, but on Modern Family, it doesn't even make sense. Or am I missing something?
That is all. Thank you.

I saw an ad with a lesbian kiss and I just want to know how integral to the plot that relationship is. I am not anti-gay, I just would like to know if is subtle or in your face a lot. BTW I am male, straight, but lesbian porn does not turn me on, nor do gratuitous lesbian scenes. In response to a response...

What are you doing today to celebrate the birthday of ageless DL fave Joyce DeWitt?
Early this week, Monday I think, I switched on The View for a little while. I stopped watching the show quite a while ago. Barbara Walters was talking and Sherri Shepherd obnoxiously butted in. Barbara was obviously upset and slapped her down so she could finish what she was saying. Sherri shut up and looked like she was pouting and sneering for the rest of the show, even on the couch with some celeb. Every picture I've seen of her this week since then shows the same nasty attitude. Isn't she cutting her own throat? Is she on her way out, too, like Joy and Elisabeth? Sherri and Hasselbitch are why I stopped watching. How can air-head Sherri think that what she says matters or has any relevance to today's world? I know that everyone has the right to their own opinion, but vapid comments like she expresses do not deserve a public forum like The View.
Always with the work. You go to your jobs so early and you barely take time for a proper lunch, and then you work so late into the evening. It's madness! In the mañana culture, we go to work at 9am, but it is not such a hard and fast rule. Then we take a proper lunch at noon, followed by siesta. Many shops close during this time. Most people go home for the day between 4-5pm. Why do you Americans work yourselves to death? I don't understand.
Johnny Weir wrote a 5-page post-nup which is part of his newfangled reconciliation package with Victor Voronov -- and Johnny makes it clear mutual masturbation will NOT be tolerated. TMZ broke the story ... Johnny and Victor agreed over the weekend to call off their divorce, but Victor wanted Johnny to sign a document apologizing for trashing Victor in the media and promising to keep Johnny's mom out of their relationship. So Johnny fired back with a document of his own, which, among other things, defines the type of cheating that will not be tolerated. The document -- obtained by TMZ -- lists the following: -- sex outside the marriage -- oral sex outside the marriage -- kissing or making out -- sexting -- aggressive flirting -- mutual masturbation -- social media/grindr/dating And it gets better. According to the document, if either one has a situation where they're "in close range or contact with someone from our past or someone to be part of the future" ... the other can veto the contact. Johnny specifically gives an example of a figure skater he dated. The document also requires joint STD tests every 6 months with the results being read with both in the room. And there's a section about splitting assets if they ultimately get divorced: "Should a gift be given, i.e., the Cartier Roadster (R.I.P.), the gift belongs to you." Someone broke the watch! And finally ... there's a section titled "Ultimatums." Johnny lists examples of Victor's ultimatums, including, "If I give you one more day to get your bank records to me, then I want to have a free fuck of anyone I want." Simply fabulous.
I usually spend 20 minutes just heaving over the toilet, sick. :( My dr. prescribed an anti-vomit medicine, Phenergan, but it makes me so sleepy that I have to take it at night and even then, I wake up in a haze and sleep right through my alarm. My other option is to quit my job, but ... then I'll have no income! Not exactly an optimal choice, although honestly, it's beginning to look better than heaving over the bowl each day.
I dare you!
Jeremy Renner gave a candid interview to The Hollywood Reporter, in which he challenges people who questioning his sexuality, recalls incidents of his volatile behavior and discusses his roles in the upcoming The Avengers and The Bourne Legacy. Renner admits to being bothered by the speculation that he is gay and the constant scrutiny about who he's dating. "I want my personal life to be personal, and it's not f---ing true," he says of the rumors. "And I don't care if you're talking about things that are true, you're still talking about my personal life. How about I go peek in your window, take what underwear you wore last night, whose husband you were f---ing, and shove that in the megaphone throughout your neighborhood? How does that feel? It's none of your goddamn business." He also recalls a particular Christmas Eve bar fight. "This guy chokes me with the scarf I was wearing. He called me a f-- 'cause I was wearing a scarf! Then he shoved my sister and I got behind him and I choked him out -- put him to sleep." But, he claims, "I'm not violent." Renner, who received Oscar nominations for his roles in The Hurt Locker and The Town, is set to take over the Jason Bourne franchise from Matt Damon. His decision to accept the opportunity wasn't an easy one. "It was a game-changer in anonymity," he says. "I had to consider how this was going to affect everyone I love -- especially myself," he says. "The star thing, the celebrity thing is new to me. I don't want to be a good celebrity, a good f---ing star. I want to be a good human being." Renner co-stars in Marvel's The Avengers, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johannson. The film hits theaters in May.

Ricky Martin was on Ellen Friday talking about his kids, boyfriend, and performing his new single "Come With Me" I remember when he came out with "Livin La Vida Loca" everyone wanted him (male and female). And once he came out everyone just kind of turned him on mute. Is this just me or do you all see the same thing?

We're both so happy for her! We were worried, to be honest. Now she can get some new lips or a chin or something! Hurray!
I finally got to see them as they are playing on HBO. I forgot Winona Ryder was in the 4th installment.
Per a request on the Oscar Pistorius thread. Apparently, this guy is also the East Area rapist in Sacramento. I grew up there when he was active in the city and the place was gripped, terrorized. Police helicopters buzzed the city almost nightly for what seemed like months and months. He was incredibly bold, breaking into homes with a male present, tying him up, and making him watch the rapes. Around this time ('76 - '79), I started seeing a lot of homes with wrought iron bars on the windows. My own parents had them installed. I moved out of state for many years and had no idea he was linked to the Night Stalker through DNA. Chilling.

On the heels of a civil lawsuit alleging that director Bryan Singer sexually abused a 17-year-old boy, and attempted to appease him with the promise of acting roles in his films that never materialized, Kirsten Dunst had some timely thoughts on the casting couch. In an interview with W Magazine guest editor Sofia Coppola, Dunst said she doesn't have much sympathy for actors who find themselves the victims of lecherous bigwigs looking to trade sex for roles. When Coppola asked the 31-year-old actress if a director had ever "pounced" on her while working together, she laughed off the idea. "I don't give off that vibe," she said. “I think that you court that stuff, and to me it’s crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in your working relationship." Perhaps Dunst should tell that to Susan Sarandon, Gwyneth Paltrow and Charlize Theron -- all of whom have gone on record with unfortunate stories of being pressured to have sex in order to advance their careers. Dunst is on a roll lately, having made controversial statements earlier this month about gender norms. "I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued. We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking -- it’s a valuable thing my mom created," Dunst told Harper's Bazaar U.K. "And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work."

Do you think he's hoping to find a wealthier, less controversial suitor? The partner of the Guardian journalist who has written a series of stories revealing mass surveillance programmes by the US National Security Agency was held for almost nine hours on Sunday by UK authorities as he passed through London's Heathrow airport on his way home to Rio de Janeiro. David Miranda, who lives with Glenn Greenwald, was returning from a trip to Berlin when he was stopped by officers at 8.05am and informed that he was to be questioned under schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000. The controversial law, which applies only at airports, ports and border areas, allows officers to stop, search, question and detain individuals. The 28-year-old was held for nine hours, the maximum the law allows before officers must release or formally arrest the individual. According to official figures, most examinations under schedule 7 – over 97% – last less than an hour, and only one in 2,000 people detained are kept for more than six hours. Miranda was released, but officials confiscated electronics equipment including his mobile phone, laptop, camera, memory sticks, DVDs and games consoles. Since 5 June, Greenwald has written a series of stories revealing the NSA's electronic surveillance programmes, detailed in thousands of files passed to him by whistleblower Edward Snowden. The Guardian has also published a number of stories about blanket electronic surveillance by Britain's GCHQ, also based on documents from Snowden. While in Berlin, Miranda had visited Laura Poitras, the US film-maker who has also been working on the Snowden files with Greenwald and the Guardian. The Guardian paid for Miranda's flights. "This is a profound attack on press freedoms and the news gathering process," Greenwald said. "To detain my partner for a full nine hours while denying him a lawyer, and then seize large amounts of his possessions, is clearly intended to send a message of intimidation to those of us who have been reporting on the NSA and GCHQ. The actions of the UK pose a serious threat to journalists everywhere. "But the last thing it will do is intimidate or deter us in any way from doing our job as journalists. Quite the contrary: it will only embolden us more to continue to report aggressively." A spokesperson for the Guardian said: "We were dismayed that the partner of a Guardian journalist who has been writing about the security services was detained for nearly nine hours while passing through Heathrow airport. We are urgently seeking clarification from the British authorities." A spokesperson for Scotland Yard said: "At 08:05 on Sunday, 18 August a 28-year-old man was detained at Heathrow airport under schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000. He was not arrested. He was subsequently released at 17:00." Scotland Yard refused to be drawn on why Miranda was stopped using powers that enable police officers to stop and question travellers at UK ports and airports. There was no comment from the Home Office in relation to the detention. However, there was surprise in political circles and elsewhere. Labour MP Tom Watson said he was shocked at the news and called for it to be made clear if any ministers were involved in authorising the detention. He said: "It's almost impossible, even without full knowledge of the case, to conclude that Glenn Greenwald's partner was a terrorist suspect. "I think that we need to know if any ministers knew about this decision, and exactly who authorised it." "The clause in this act is not meant to be used as a catch-all that can be used in this way."
Robert Pattison has recently claimed he''s allergic to vagina, but can anyone remember back in 2005/2006 when this hot stud (JARED LETO) said he was "as Gay as a Goose"?? \ I''m surprised no one picked up on that and everyone on DL still thinks he''s straight?? Are we blind or what?
It's official: Lupita Nyong'o is People magazine's Most Beautiful Person for 2014, besting other gorgeous ladies like Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts and Julianna Margulies. But it's the Kenyan Mexican actress' reaction to the new honor that captures her the most. "It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," Nyong'o told People after learning she's gracing this year's cover. "I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."

Ok DL'rs, Today is Mamie Von Doren's birthday. I used to work at a cafe in South Coast Plaza about 16 years ago and Mamie used to come in at least 5 times a week. In the mornings, she would come with her L.A.timed journalist husband (he looked more like her son)and she would order the baguette french toast . It had to be crispy on the outside, soft in the center. *eyes rolling* or she would sent it back. Just a total PIA. They would return for lunch with Mamie's mom,(looked more like her twin sister) Between the three of them, the would order 2 french onion soups and a side (very small) Cesar salad. ok whatever. They were very haughty when dealing with the peons such as myself. I would always have to look away at her disgusting SAGGING chi-chis. One time, my co-worker mentioned to her" Oh I saw you on A&E biography last night" and she snapped back, "I don't talk about that" whatever bitch. Truly couldn't stand waiting on her. Another co-worker left to go work at another restaurant and was so happy not to have to ever wait on the old hag ever again; Until she came in for lunch during her first week of training. Another time Dr. Laura was perusing the menu and someone was like "oh Dr' Laura wow and she was like yeah yeah don't bother me (BIG surprise I know) Signy Coleman (Hope from The Young and Restless sat in my section one day was was a bitch.) And my co-worker José Luis swears Fidel Castro was in the resturant chomping on a Croque Monsieur.
Yes, Tamera of "Tia and Tamera" 1990s kid fame... Her husband is a conservatard. He got into a fight via Twitter claiming that there's no such thing as ethnicity. This happened because he didn't like people claiming George Zimmerman's ethnicity. Click the link to see the exchange. ... The husband of Tamera Mowry-Housley — who recently talked openly about how she and her husband, Fox reporter Adam Housley have been on the receiving end of nasty, racist attacks — is breaking his silence. His wife and her twin sister Tia Mowry-Hardict were featured on OWN’s Oprah: Where Are They Now? Friday, and she cried as she shared hurtful comments the twosome have heard of their pairing. In an interview with TVNewser, Adam says that “the fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad…it is pathetic. Yes, I am white. Yes, she is half-black. Marrying a white man does not erase her color and marrying a woman who is half-black does not mean I am blinded. The problem isn’t pigmentation…the problem is backwards, bigoted thought from people who should know better.” Tamera — her mother is black and her father is white — said during the Oprah special that “it’s hurtful, because my husband and I are so openly and fine with showing love, but people choose to look past love and spew hate. That’s what hurts me because I’ve never experienced so much hate ever in my life. I get called ‘white man’s whore.’ The new one was ‘back in the day you cost $300, but now you’re giving it to him for free.”

I was diagnosed with major depression a few years ago and prescribed Prozac. It's been wonderful, aside from a reduced libido. My partner is convinced I don't need it, and that I just need to exercise and "learn to control my emotions." I've attempted to go off the meds a couple of times to appease him, but that just results in my not being able to get out of bed because of the depression. My boyfriend takes this as evidence that I'm "addicted" and goes on to rail against the evils of the pharmaceutical industry. This relationship is doomed, isn't it?

Belated congratulations are in order for Matt Bomer. The former White Collar star reveals in the May issue of Details that he and longtime partner Simon Halls privately wed back in 2011. Bomer, who quietly came out in 2012, and Halls, a Hollywood publicist, have three sons together, an 8-year-old and a pair of 6-year-old twins. The 36-year-old's upcoming role as dying AIDS patient Felix Turner in The Normal Heart, HBO's movie adaptation of gay-rights activist Larry Kramer's critically acclaimed 1985 play, is one close to the actor. In high school, he says, "I was in romantic relationships with girls … At the time, I was clueless and obviously in a different place in relation to my sexuality." But, he adds, reading the play in 1992 "completely rocked my world." For Bomer, who lost more than 35 lbs. for the movie, it's the role of his life. "I wouldn't have a lot of the rights I have today if it wasn't for people like Larry … It's rare that you get to be a part of something that, hopefully, has some significance socially or historically," he says.

And found the latest entry to be something called "Datalounge"? What do you think they thought? Do you think they hung around and posted?
And she's fat.
They interviewed him on the radio this afternoon. He said after all of these allegations that he's only going to have sex with twenty nine year olds from now on. The host was understandably all "Why twenty nine year olds???" Singer responded "Because there's 20 of em!"
Is Christina a secret Datalounger? [quote]The gorgeous actress also spoke about her upcoming 39th birthday as she admitted: 'I think I'm going to end up working on my birthday, which is fine. To be working on your birthday is a gift.' She added: 'I had wanted to go to Palm Springs with my friends and have a kaftans and casserole party.' When Jimmy asked what that meant, she explained: 'My friend knows how much I love a kaftan. It's what I wear at home all the time, it's my go to thing... and then we just eat casseroles.'
Please take my poll. Right now these are the top names being bandied about as potential Letterman replacements.Also likely being discussed as potential candidates are Amy Schumer and Chelsea Handler; I did not list them because I ran out of space and it is unlikely they would be hired. But you are wlecome to vote for them as "Other." I also did not list Jon Stewart because almost everyone agrees it is extremely unlikely he would want to leave his position on Comedy Central, where he is top banana. You could also vote for him as "Other." Amy Poehler would have to leave "Parks and Recreation," but it is expected to be over when Letterman leaves next year.
My cat just turned a year old. I received tons of brochures and email from pet insurance providers when I adopted him. I didn't mean to put off the idea of getting some. I already paid out of pocket for his first year exams and shots. I also paid for his medication for a tummy ache. After going through all of that, when he turned a year I began considering getting him covered. Since he's still young, I thought I should get serious now if I'm ever going to enroll. There are so many insurances, I can't really decide which one is best. He doesn't have any ailments yet, ailments that would require constant attention. I know a lot of you are pet owners and animal lovers. Can someone suggest an insurance? I'd love to hear from people who've actually used the company. Again, I have a cat. I'm not sure that matters, but perhaps one insurance is better for them when it comes to issues such as kidney disease, something cats are known to develop. Thanks so much!!!
Dear Jetstar, Do you like riddles? I do, that’s why I’m starting this letter with one. What weighs more than a Suzuki Swift, less than a Hummer and smells like the decaying anus of a deceased homeless man? No idea? How about, what measures food portions in kilograms and has the personal hygiene of a French prostitute? Still nothing? Right, one more try. What’s fat as fuck, stinks like shit and should be forced to purchase two seats on a Jetstar flight? That’s right, it’s the man I sat next to under on my flight from Perth to Sydney yesterday. As I boarded the plane, I mentally high-fived myself for paying the additional $25 for an emergency seat. I was imagining all that extra room, when I was suddenly distracted by what appeared to be an infant hippopotamus located halfway down the aisle. As I got closer, I was relieved to see that it wasn’t a dangerous semi-aquatic African mammal, but a morbidly obese human being. However, this relief was short-lived when I realised that my seat was located somewhere underneath him. Soon after I managed to burrow into my seat, I caught what was to be the first of numerous fetid whiffs of body odour. His scent possessed hints of blue cheese and Mumbai slum, with nuances of sweaty flesh and human faeces sprayed with cologne - Eau No. Considering I was visibly under duress, I found it strange that none of the cabin crew offered me another seat. To be fair, it’s entirely possible that none of them actually saw me. Perhaps this photo will jog their memories. Pinned to my seat by a fleshy boulder, I started preparing for a 127 Hours-like escape. Thankfully though, the beast moved slightly to his left, which allowed me to stand up, walk to the back of the plane and politely ask the cabin crew to be seated elsewhere. I didn’t catch the names of the three flight attendants, but for the purpose of this letter, I’ll call them: Chatty 1, Chatty 2 and Giggly (I’ve given them all the same surname - Couldnotgiveashit). After my request, Chatty 1 and Chatty 2 continued their conversation, presumably about how shit they are at their jobs, and Giggly, well, she just giggled. I then asked if I could sit in one of the six vacant seats at the back of the aircraft, to whichGiggly responded, “hehehe, they’re for crew only, hehehe“. I think Giggly may be suffering from some form of mental impairment. I tried to relocate myself without the assistance of the Couldnotgiveashit triplets, but unfortunately everyone with a row to themselves was now lying down. It was then I realised that my fate was sealed. I made my way back to Jabba the Hutt and spent the remainder of the flight smothered in side-boob and cellulite, taking shallow breaths to avoid noxious gas poisoning. Just before landing, I revisited the back of the plane to use the toilet. You could imagine my surprise when I saw both “crew only” rows occupied by non-crew members. I can only assume Giggly let them sit there after she forgot who she was and why she’s flying on a big, shiny metal thing in the sky. Imagine going out for dinner and a movie, only to have your night ruined by a fat mess who eats half your meal then blocks 50% of the screen. Isn’t that exactly the same as having someone who can’t control their calorie intake occupying half your seat on a flight? Of course it is, so that’s why I’m demanding a full refund of my ticket, including the $25 for an emergency row seat. I’m also looking to be compensated for the physical pain and mental suffering caused by being enveloped in human blubber for four hours. My lower back is in agony and I had to type this letter one-handed as I’m yet to regain full use of my left side. If I don’t recover completely, I’ll have to say goodbye to my lifelong dream of becoming Air Guitar World Champion. If that occurs, you will pay. To discuss my generous compensation package, email me at: [Redacted], or tweet me at: @RichWisken No regards, Rich Wisken.
I watched several hours of television, and don't remember any of it. I also posted all over Facebook, and don't remember doing so. I'm scared. I drink every night, but I didn't realize that I was blacking out.
'I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I've never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really. I've lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity — it's why I like guys. I'm not a super effete person, and I have to turn into that, and in doing so it brings up a lot of homophobic insecurities within myself.' Lean, toned photos:

Tom Daley: I’m definitely gay not bisexual 3rd April 2014, 10:45 AM; Scott Roberts Five months after saying he still fancied girls, Tom Daley says “I am a gay man now”. Speaking on ITV2′s Celebrity Juice the 19-year-old Olympic medalist also said his relationship with Oscar winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, 39, is “all good”. Explaining why he initially suggested he was bisexual, Daley said: “I came out on YouTube as I wanted to say what I wanted to say without anyone twisting it. “I told my family before I told the world. I was terrified. I did not know what the reaction was going to be. “I did it on YouTube because people were constantly digging and asking questions.” Daley’s relationship with Black was exposed days after he posted the coming out video. “It really was love at first sight,” Daley told ITV’s Jonathan Ross after going public with their romance. “I’d never felt anything like it before. We were at a party and I hadn’t even spoken to him all night. “I didn’t know what to do or if he was gay at first. I made the first move, I typed ‘call me’ in his notes with a smiley face on this phone and the next day he texted.” Celebrity Juice airs tonight on ITV2 at 10pm.
Will he ever break into television or films? Is Queer As Folk the peak of his career. Looking at imdb, the projects he has can't be paying him much.
Any suggestions for a hair dye that will cover my greys? I have medium brown hair with lots of grey coming in. I''ve yet to find a dye that will cover my greys. Every color I choose seems to darken my hair while barely coving my greys. I want to keep the same hair color, but would like my grays to blend in.\ \ I know going to a salon would be the obvious answer, but I can''t afford salon services and would like to take care of this myself at home.\ \ TIA.
How do you get rid of anger? I'm so angry at a family situation, I swear I'm seeing red. I want to get pass the anger - I'll never forgive them, but need help letting the anger go.
...I just got out of the hospital yesterday evening. I started the Atkins Diet on Sunday and was doing induction - on Monday night/Tuesday morning I woke up *terribly* sick and continued vomiting at intervals of every 2 hours. When the frequency increased to every hour (and I was just throwing up water and bile) I went to my doctor, who advised me to go to the ER for some IV fluids and some intravenous Zofran to stop the vomiting. Once at the ER, the doctors ran some blood tests and found that I was in a severe state of ketoacidosis - the acid level of my blood had become dangerously high. This is similar to what happens to diabetics when they don't take their insulin. If I hadn't gone to the doctor when I did, I might've gone into a diabetic coma (even though I am *not* diabetic). The doctors believe this was purely a complication of the Atkins Diet and have advised me *never* to try it again, as it could be fatal for me. I'm an otherwise healthy, normal person, 34 years old. I've never had any major health problems before. I'm not overweight - I just wanted a more streamlined look, and I've known a lot of people who've supposedly done Atkins. Anyway, this diet scares the shit out of me. I just wanted to put my experience out there, so people are aware that serious complications can arise. Barely 36 hours on this shit almost killed me.
Or been fucking a guy and he accidentally shat? This happened to my ex one time and he tried claiming that this is not uncommon during anal sex. I've certainly never experienced it before nor have I heard anyone else talking about what I'd assume is a highly-traumatic experience.
One of the top five actresses of the 20th century in my opinion. Nowadays she does just about any film and is not too picky in her roles. Sure she wants a nice little nest egg for retirement. But still doesn't detract from what she has accomplished in her career. Was almost booed offstage in 1978 when she won her oscar for her politics. Lots of love here for Maggie and Judi. No one here mentions Vanessa much. She is definitely their equal. Thoughts and opinions?
From time to time, Dee Williams does a possession count. The last tally was 305. In many homes, that may amount to the stuff found in the kitchen cupboards, or the contents of one walk-in closet. For Ms. Williams, it included all of her worldly belongings, from her bedroom suite (a mattress and a quilt) to her home entertainment equipment (a laptop) to her jewelry collection (four pieces in all: two necklaces and two pairs of earrings). “That’s everything,” she said, adding that she recently ordered a book on house design, a big splurge. “I’m constantly going through my stuff, figuring out what I should get rid of. Creep happens.” When your house is 84 square feet, life gets pared down. ...
They were both stars at MGM at same-even appeared the same movie" Ziegfeld Girl"-did they get along? Were they in classes together?
Enough of this shit already! Some cunts set a bomb off. The brave people are the ones who fought back from their injuries and who suffered the loss of their loved ones and hunted down the bombers. Wearing tshirts and waving Red Sox banners doesn't make you "strong". What the fuck was the city supposed to do anyway, melt the fuck down and cease operations? Seriously, it's become the new "Stronger than the Storm" and "We Will Rebuild". We're going to be deluged with this crap the next 7 days so get ready. It's all going to be about how the city "came back" and is "stronger than ever" etc. etc. When did tragedies become tourism marketing campaigns and why would they make entire cities or states heroes for having lived through it when those people had nothing to do with surviving it?
Can they still be called straight? I think so. An actress might sleep with a man to further her career, but that doesn't mean that she's sexually attracted to that particular man.
The Savory Pie thread reminded me of how much I just love little butt plugs. I realize they're "ugly" to some people. But they must be the sweetest little critters on Earth. I've never met one that isn't a sweetheart, who doesn't crave being cuddled but also who loves to bounce and play. They're happy little plugs, always happy, even if the famous face doesn't show it. No doubt many plugs fit this description but for me, my butthole goes soft at the sight of a plug. Anybody here have one?

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

In novels and movies, you often have plots driven by wills where money is left to someone under extreme conditions: they will inherit a lot of money but only if they get married within a certain time frame, or they have to live in a certain house, etc. I've never heard of such stipulations in real life. is it legally possible to make such stipulations in a will about how other people must live their lives in order to inherit your money?
It is not without intention that this year's May 5 Metropolitan Museum Gala and Costume Exhibit theme "Charles James: Beyond Fashion (1906-1978)" is diametrically opposed to last year's raucous and rakish "Punk." Considered one of the few true American couturiers, James perfected the art of the ballgown. Simply put: That's the way Conde Nast artistic director Anna Wintour wants it. For the official opening of the newly renovated and renamed Anna Wintour Costume Center (to which Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch donated a cool $10 million), a source tells THR, "Anna wants more exclusivity and high fashion" -- though one-half of April's cover, Kim Kardashian, is still on the invitation list -- and raised ticket prices from $15,000 to $25,000 per person. Vogue sent out an "informative email," says a source, "for gentlemen to be dressed in white tie. That means black tails and top hats -- you might as well ask them to wear monocles and canes!" Menswear designers, flummoxed, went back to the drawing board; few even do white tie. Expect a male contingent, including Gala co-chair Bradley Cooper, to be vaguely reminiscent of the Edwardians. There's no mandate for women, but the Jamesian-style ball gowns are expected to stun -- and make group photos, as well as walking the Met's stairs, challenging. THR hears attendance was booked fast and early: Prada will be represented by brand face Lupita Nyong'o and Michelle Dockery; Prabal Gurung by Zoe Saldana; Givenchy by Amanda Seyfried; J. Mendel by Taylor Swift; Diane von Furstenberg by Margot Robbie and Olivia Munn; Tommy Hilfiger by Zooey Deschanel; with Jessica Chastain, Emilia Clarke, Naomi Watts, Jessica Pare and Allison Williams also attending. Lanvin's Alber Elbaz will be there with a mystery celeb, but not usual house model Emma Stone. According to sources, with less prominent designers, some stars are being paid to attend, flown in first-class, put up in hotel suites … and, of course, there's that steep ticket price.
Is there a point to this? Has someone been stupid enough to hire this bimbo for another movie role?
Enjoy, circ trolls!
Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson has made headlines for the $31 million in contributions he and his wife have made to conservative super PACs so far this campaign, but he's no longer the only high-profile Las Vegas figure writing big checks to benefit Republican candidates. As Politico's Ken Vogel and Steve Freiss report, Wynn Resorts chairman Steve Wynn has emerged as one of the leading benefactors behind Crossroads GPS, a political group founded by GOP strategist Karl Rove that has already spent tens of millions of dollars against President Barack Obama's re-election. Unlike its sister group, American Crossroads, Crossroads GPS was organized as a 501-C4 advocacy group and doesn't have to disclose its donors. But sources tell Politico Wynn has contributed millions to the effort and was the group's single biggest donor as of earlier this year—a relationship based in part on his close friendship with Rove: Wynn, the flamboyant Las Vegas billionaire who claims to have voted for President Barack Obama in 2008, was the perfect get for Rove. Wynn was loaded, had soured on Obama and was just the kind of wealthy businessman who could help underwrite a plan hatched by Rove and other influential conservatives to spend close to $1 billion total to win the White House, Senate and House in 2012. Wynn, a registered Democrat until recently, was reluctant to attach his name to any high-dollar gambles on the GOP, worried that Obama's allies would make him a bogeyman. So Rove—who helped develop Crossroads GPS in 2010, one of a growing roster of non-profit groups that can now accept unlimited contributions for hard-hitting political ads—was a perfect get for Wynn, too. Rove knows all the players—and the groups he works with are skilled at minimizing media attention to their financial whales. The courting, which took place in direct conversations and through friends and allies of both men, produced big results. Wynn has kicked in millions to Crossroads GPS, according to multiple sources. And Rove, who attended Wynn's gala wedding last year in Vegas, recently got something of a personal bonus out of the relationship. After Wynn attended the veteran operative's wedding last month in Austin—an intimate and until-now unreported affair also attended by former President George W. Bush—Rove and his new wife Karen Johnson flew to Naples, Italy, aboard Wynn's Boeing 737—a nearly 11-hour, 6,000-mile trip that could cost tens of thousands of dollars from a charter jet carrier. Wynn joined Rove in Italy. Crossroads spokesman Jonathan Collegio told Politico "Crossroads does not comment on anonymous speculation concerning who might or might not give to the group," and would not comment on Rove's relationship with Wynn. A Wynn spokesman also declined to comment on their relationship.
The actress says she has tax and credit card debts totaling more than $1 million, most of which is owed to the Internal Revenue Service. She is being sued by her landlord for $30,000 after she allegedly moved out of a rental apartment in Los Angeles. She has worked consistently, how can she be broke?

The purpose of this thread is to make this one of the top Google hits for anyone searching for "Is Aaron Schock Gay" or "Aaron Schock Gay". The other purpose of this thread is to let anyone searching for information that Aaron Schock is gay know that he is INDEED gay, he has had more cocks pass through him than through the gloryhole onboard the USS Intrepid, and is a traitor to BOTH the gay community whose semen he can't get enough of AND to the Conservative Christian community that he claims to represent. Feel free to trash this shameless cockgobbler here.

The image of cigar-chomping race fans no longer applies to horse racing's signature event. Slightly more than half of NBC's Derby viewers last year were women attracted to the party, the Nielsen company said. No other major TV sports event, with the exception of the Olympics, is so weighted toward female viewers, NBC said. "It's not just a two-minute race," said Rob Hyland, coordinating producer for the NBC Sports Group. "Of course, the two-minute race is extremely important, but our job is to capture the venue and the day — it's a huge celebration — as creatively and poignantly as possible."

I hear that Richard Dean Anderson is being courted to return as Dr. Jeff Weber. I would definitely like to see him reprise the role. Seriously, what are the major plot-lines that I would need to understand in order to pick-up where I left off? Does Leslie Charleson appear much as Monica? What about Stuart Damon/Alan Quartermaine? I know that Tony Geary/Luke is an occasional character. I know all about his son Lucky. Also, I know that Robin has AIDS and that her father, Robin Scorpio, died in General Hospital. I guess that the major story-line now concerns Sonny and Brenda (or has she not returned?) I know that it's a lot of ground to cover, but I have total faith in the collective memory of DL memories. Please fill me in. I also read in a current thread that Donna Mills has joined the cast. What is the story with that? And, Cheryl, SHUT UP!
Erections, etc. It's inevitable, I guess. Where do you draw the line? Are there Sex Cops around (NSFW)?

A man's dick is a beautiful thing that gives both life and pleasure. And I'm tired of hearing people call other people "dick" as an insult, i.e. with phrases like "You're a dick!" or "What a dick move!" It's anti-male and vaguely homophobic.

Pat Robertson told a 700 Club viewer today that he has “grounds for divorce” because his wife is not having sex with him regularly, speculating that she was “molested as a child” and needs serious psychological counseling. The viewer told Robertson that he has “only been intimate with my wife a handful of times” and that “she has no interest in the bedroom,” adding: “I believe the Bible says withholding sex is wrong. Correct me if I’m wrong.” Robertson agreed that the Bible condemns withholding sex and wondered whether the viewer’s wife has “psychological problems” resulting from childhood sexual abuse.

Let's discuss them here. Unfortunately, they don't get much, if any, shine here in the States, but there are a bevy of hot ones in the Great White North. I'm particularly fond of bubble butted Yannick Bisson and sexy Steve Bacic.
I know she was not on the level of, say, Davis, Crawford, Garland, or Taylor, but was she considered major A-list back in the day? I can see her limited appeal as the girl-next-door type, but I just don't see najor star quality. Her performances were at least adequate, but she never seemed to stand out in anything she did, always blending in with the furniture. So what was her deal? And please keep the "It Depends" responses to a minimum LOL.
... by the gays--and anyone else with a brain and a memory of the last 40 yeras. Nasty, incompetent, straight writer Jo Becker gets all her facts wrong, tries to pretend that gays didn't start thinking about marriage until 2008, and basically writes a book that's a script for a Hollywood fantasy, not a history of an important movement in civil rights. What does her publisher do? Stand by her and pretend nothing's wrong.
Isn't that the gayest question ever for straight men to ask one another?

Beyonce’s self-titled surprise release, which hit iTunes exclusively on Thursday evening (9 p.m. PT), has now sold over 430,000 units in just over one day, guaranteeing it the top slot on the Billboard 200 once that chart’s top 10 is revealed mid-week. As reported yesterday, “Beyonce” shifted slightly over 80,000 in the three hours from 9 p.m. PT to midnight on Thursday evening, putting her Friday sales at roughly 350,000. With two more days left in the sales tracking week, the title could sell over 600,000 before the buzzer sounds. The iTunes exclusive “visual” album, retailing for $15.99 contains 14 tracks- not available for a la carte purchases until Dec. 20- and 14 accompanying videos, along with other bonus video content. No set date has been announced for the CD release to physical retailers or of its availability on other digital download sites. At 430,000, “Beyonce” is already set to become the biggest debuting album by a female artist since Taylor Swift sold an astounding 1.2 million copies of “Red” in the week corresponding to Billboard 200 chart dated Nov 10, 2012. And if predictions in the 600,000 range hold, the set would grant Beyonce the best debut week- and best sales week period- of her career. Her 2006 album “B’day” started with 541,000 in September 2006.
These were the people I asked to come over Sunday at 9 for drinks & to watch "Game of Thrones" (they don't have cable) who would have brought their dog had I warned them not to. The friend just emailed and told me his partner wanted to bring something, "perhaps a savory pie." I find dishes like that disgusting, and wrote back to him asking them not to bring anything, just themselves. He wrote again saying, "But my partner insists we bring something!" and I responded, "If you really want to bring something, just bring a simple snack... please, nothing elaborate, and please, please, nothing savory." I already regret inviting them over.
Cock, balls & bush:
I saw some things in there that I would like to have but I'm not spending $ 600. on a belt even if it is crocodile. Similarly, much of what I see these days that is promoted is both ridiculous looking & so overpriced. When I was in there though, there were plenty of people willing to lay out 5K for a suit, $ 800. shirts etc Would you spend that kind of money for clothes ?
You knew this was coming.

Research on average penis size has confirmed racial stereotypes, with Africans coming out on top, Asians at the bottom and Europeans somewhere in between. Richard Lynn, emeritus professor of psychology at Ulster University carried out the research, which is published in the scientific journal Personality and Individual Differences. 113 nationalities were included in a study of average penis lengths. Big In the penis size league tables the Daily Mail reports that men from The Republic of the Congo take top position with a porn star like 7.1 inches, with the Ecuadorians, Ghanaians and Columbians not far behind with 7 inches, 6.8 inches and 6.7 inches respectively. The average for the African continent as a whole is a whopping 6.3 inches. Medium The Icelanders come top of the Europeans with 6.5 inches. The Germans are Mr European average with 5.7 inches. The Brits come out above the French, beating the more traditional country of love and romance, by a full 0.2 inches. The Brits also beat the Australians (5.2in), Americans (5.1in) and Irish (5in). Small At the other end of the table, North and South Korea measure in at 3.8 inches. India and Thailand are only slightly bigger at 4 inches. The overall average for north-east Asians was the lowest at 4.2 inches. How reliable are these figures? According to The Telegraph critics have claimed that Mr Flynn’s research is flawed because the penis length data was gathered from websites. The Telegraph quotes Jelte Wicherts, professor of methodology at Tilburg University, Holland as saying, “This is a brave paper in a controversial area but the data has no methodology.” Some of the average penis sizes by country: Republic of Congo, 7.1 Ecuador, 7 Ghana, 6.8 Colombia 6.7 Iceland 6.5 Italy 6.2 South Africa 6 Sweden 5.9 Greece 5.8 Germany 5.7 New Zealand 5.5 UK 5.5 Canada 5.5 Spain 5.5 France 5.3 Australia 5.2 Russia 5.2 USA 5.1 Ireland 5 Romania 5 China 4.3 India 4 Thailand 4 South Korea 3.8 North Korea 3.8
Despite having the world's most enormous cranium, Kim Jong Un wasn't very bright, stuggling and lagging far behind his classmates at an expensive Swiss school. He never passed his exams and like his father before him he had (and has) his fixations (Dads: Disney; His: computer games/basketball). There's a little something else about this Kim Jong: [quote]At weekends there were parties and a lot of under-age drinking. But I never once saw a drop of alcohol pass his lips and he wasn't interested in girls. What? No Kim Jong Deux?
You won't be seeing Zac Efron smile for awhile. E! News has exclusively learned that the actor's mouth is wired shut after he broke his jaw over the weekend. Efron slipped at the entrance of his L.A.-area home on Sunday in a puddle of water he didn't see. He not only broke his jaw when he fell, but he also suffered a gash that required stitches. Efron is expected to make a full recovery. In the meantime, upcoming plans to promote his new comedy That Awkward Moment have been put on hold. Also starring Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan, the movie follows a group of young guys who vow to stay single. It's set for release in January. Just last week, Efron attended a Vanity Fair event in West Hollywood honoring Jordan. Later in the year, Efron will be seen in Neighbors, an Animal House-like flick in which he plays a rowdy frat boy opposite Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne. He also celebrated his 26th birthday last month with a day of golf with his father David and some friends at the Callaway Golf Center in Carlsbad, Calif. He later hit Chateau Marmont for a celebration with his younger brother, Dylan. Get well soon, Zac!

Hello LA DLers, my boyfriend and I are headed to LA this weeekend for a friend's wedding. We are staying in West Hollywood at the Andaz hotel. We arrive early afternoon on Saturday and have dinner reservations at Sur and then planning on going to Saturday Night Slut, Jonny McGovern's party. Sunday it's just walking around and seeing sights. I am guessing most places will be closed for Easter. Monday is the wedding and we are headed back on Tuesday. Is there anything we should definitely plan on doing? Sunday will be entirely ours. You have an good ideas for brunch?
Do you habitually leave anything on when you leave the house, either overnight or for just a few hours? What about while you're at work? On vacation? Do you leave a radio or television on for a pet? Do you use lamp timers? Surge protectors? Point-of-use or whole house? What about a programmable thermostat for your heating and/or cooling? Do you set your 'stat up/down/off at night? Or away? Do you use fans in warm (not hot) weather? Do you ever open your windows for ventilation and/or cooling? Do you use power strips to stop vampire loads? Do you know what a vampire load is? (And no, it's not nasty!) Have you been robbed while using a lamp timer? Do you turn your water heater off when you go on vacation? Do you do anything special or unique that fellow DLers could emulate to reduce energy consumption? Please share what you will so we can learn from one another. I'm having to really cut back due to a prolonged period of unemployment and I need ideas!

Gay or not? Let's get a conclusion.
Have you ever found something while passively creeping on the internet that you wish you hadn't found, like some random chick's Instagram account featuring said random chick making out with your friend's fiancee. Your dad's Match.com profile. The face of the guy who broke up with you because he just "wasn't interested in seeing anyone right now" on Tinder. Your therapist's Twitter account. Your boss's N*Sync fanfic Livejournal. Tell us what you found, and what — if anything — you did about it.

Researchers at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research, led by Associate Professor Dr. David Harrich, say they have developed a form of gene therapy that turns the HIV protein against itself and ultimately stops it from replicating, according to the Australian Times. Harrich himself notes that his research is not an HIV cure. "You would still be infected with HIV," he said, according to the Queensland Institute's statement. "But the virus would stay latent, it wouldn't wake up, so it wouldn't develop into AIDS. With a treatment like this, you would maintain a healthy immune system."
Dustin was set to deliver the commencement address at his Alma mater Pasadena City College. But the offer has now been withdrawn, citing concerns about his sex life. Board President Anthony Fellow said. “We’ll be on the radio and on television. We just don’t want to give PCC (Pasadena City College) a bad name.” For his part Black has written an open letter (regarding his sex life and the photos that were leaked) which in part reads "old images from a far simpler time in my life, a time before digital camera phones and Internet scandals. They were photos of me with a man I cared for, a man who shared my Mormon background, and who was also struggling with who he was versus where he came from. And yes, we were doing what gay men do when they love and trust each other, we were having sex." Read the full letter below

Why was she stuck playing that same cliched uppity old bitch role from then on? Why didn't she play any trully meaty roles like her bestie Judi Dench did (Notes on the Scandal, Philomena, Mrs Henderson Presents...). It's sad that most younger people know her only as that actress from the Harry Potter movies.

MERYL STREEP’s 35-year marriage to sculptor Don Gummer has always been one of Hollywood’s strongest – but sources say it’s been rocked in recent months by rumors of her long-ago cheating and her unyielding focus on her career.

Appearing on CNN, the investigative correspondent also described a CBS News culture where "ideologically entrenched" managers were hesitant to portray the Obama administration negatively. Sharyl Attkisson leveled strong, but carefully worded, criticism on Sunday against her former employer CBS News, describing a pattern where stories that painted the Obama administration or corporate interests in an unflattering way faced resistance at the network. "It did get to the point were there was not a lot left for me to do," Attkisson reiterated about her employment during an interview with Brian Stelter on CNN's Reliable Sources. The investigative reporter alleged a culture among some sectors at CBS News that was hesitant toward airing a story critical of the government and singled out "the producers that decide what gets on a program during a given day." She also noted that in the past several years stories that were favorable to the Obama administration were likelier to be embraced by CBS News producers. "We had an almost total change in management in the time after Katie Couric left, the top managers who were very into the stories of government waste and government oversight all of them left at one time," she said. "It's fairly well-discussed inside CBS News that there are some managers recently who've been so ideologically entrenched that there's a feeling and a discussion that some of them -- certainly not all of them -- have a difficult time viewing a story that may reflect negatively upon government or the administration as a story of value," Attkisson said. Attkisson announced her resignation from CBS News on March 10, ending a career with the network that spanned over two decades. As an investigative correspondent at CBS, she reported aggressively on the Fast and Furious gun-smuggling scandal and the aftermath of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya. She was nominated for a 2013 Emmy in the investigative journalism in a newscast category for her work on a report titled "Libya: Dying for Security." Attkisson has been critical of CBS since her departure, expressing similar displeasure in an interview with Howard Kurtz during his Fox News media show on April 13. "There seems to be a visceral reaction to doing stories that could ruffle feathers, whether it is certain people in the political spectrum or even corporate interests," she told Kurtz. "I think there has come to be a narrowing universe of stories that are desired by the broadcasts, and it leaves us sometimes I think with newscasts that don't dig very deep."

Mr. Harris is in full command of who he is and, most excitingly, what he has become with this performance. That’s a bona fide Broadway star, the kind who can rule an audience with the blink of a sequined eyelid. With this show, Mr. Harris joins an elite club of musical-comedy male supernovas that has exactly one other member these days, Hugh Jackman.
In the suit, Egan claims the abuse started when he was 14 or 15 and moved to Los Angeles with his family to start his acting career. It was in LA that he was introduced to another Hollywood powerplayer, Marc Collins-Rector and his lover Chad Shackley, he claims. Egan was invited to one of Collins-Rector's 'notorious' parties held at his home, dubbed the M&C Estate in Encino, California. According to the suit, the parties were well-known in Hollywood and attended by investors in Collin-Rector's company who lured young boys as part of a 'sordid sex ring'. Collins-Rector eventually faced justice himself, admitting in court in 2004 that he lured five minors across state lines for sexual purposes. While these parties allegedly 'featured sexual contact between adult males and the many teenage boys', Egan maintains he 'never freely' consented to the advances. It was two or three months after Collins-Rector began allegedly abusing Egan that he was introduced to Singer at one of the parties. Egan was in the pool when Collins-Rector approached him and ordered him out to hug Singer. Egan was nude, as per the rules of the house pool, so when he hugged Singer the director allegedly 'grabbed his bare buttocks'. Egan claims the three then went to a jacuzzi where he was ordered to sit on Collins-Rector's lap before being passed off to Singer.
I am. An old Russian piano teacher taught me that you shouldn't cut your nails when waiting for the results of an exam. It's been three fucking weeks and my exam results have not been posted. My nails are so long, I can hardly type.
I have only recently started watching men and women broadcast sexual activity on these sites. You can watch for free. Often I end up seeing some incredible stuff. What surprises me is the casualness. Most are clearly identifiable and leave nothing to the imagination.Some broadcasts are very intimate and personal. Anyone can capture these images. Many young college age men are on there. This stuff never goes away and can haunt you 20 years from now. Please explain
Too much plastic surgery? Reconstruction after an accident? It looks weird.
The Avengers movies have a mostly white male cast. All straight, apparently. Wouldn't it be awesome to introduce Captain Marvel (the former Ms Marvel) into that universe, as an amalgam of the Mar-Vell, Monica Rambeau and Carol Danvers versions? Half Kree, and aware of it, but not too different from us until Nick Fury gives her the Nega Bands that give her powers. They're keyed to her unique genes, but when she has them she has her cosmic comic powers- flight, semi-invulnerable, strength and power blasts- plus a link to the Kree. "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" could have her on the team. Hell, she should be named Monica Danvers Mar-Vell, just to give a nod to all three characters. I would watch a documentary on saving albino snakes in Burma if Lupita was the star- she is a true star. Marvel should lock her into a 6 picture deal NOW, and bring a real super powered black woman into the MCU.
I'm fascinated and afraid.
Fucking hot piece of meat now starring in "Do No Harm." Probably a breeder, but he punches all my buttons.

Movie is causing controversy. Many religious are coming out against it. I've not seen it, but it seems that the kid was just parroting stuff fed to him by dad and it is seen as a ploy to make daddy a rich celebrity preacher.
Looks like Logan/Wolferine travels to Japan this time and squares off against Viper and The Silver Samurai! Should be exciting! Oh...and a Jean Gray cameo, too.
Do you have billions of these fuckers in your gardens/flower beds? I've been inundated with them for 3 or 4 years now and I cannot get rid of them. Nothing kills them. I even have guinea fowl and they won't eat the fuckers. They are called sowbugs and when you look them up online, they are invariably called beneficial to gardens and articles will tell you that they eat dead, decaying plant life and "only rarely" eat live plants. They eat every fucking live plant in my garden. I did not ever see them in my garden until I allowed a landscaper to put down his own mulch instead of the mulch I usually bought in bags from the store. It was easier for him to pick up a trunkful of the stuff and put it in my flower beds than opening bags. Have you been able to do anything to cut the population of these pests? They are not roly-polies, BTW. These bugs do not roll into a ball.
It looks like the other thread is closed so I thought I would start up another on. I think this place can be hot sometimes (especially at lunchtime). They have a downstairs area that you can do whatever you want and I have been there and had fun with some super hot dudes. Looking to know if there are any other times when this place (xpressions on 53rd) is crowded - weekends? late night?
I love onion dip. Can I make tubs of it and eat it with beef jerkey and pork rinds instead of chips? Will that make me skinny?
How long can any relationship that begins at the G-Lounge last? The old guy is gross (and I say this as a fellow Eldergay). "'I could never do that,' is usually the first thing a bystander will state when he finds out someone is in a three-person or more relationship. But why do some people seem to thrive in such an arrangement? Franco DiLuzio and Mark Lander met while working at G-Lounge, a club in the in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood. Five years later, they were married. But two months after their wedding, everything changed for the happily married couple. After a few chats online via a male dating site, Franco met Vinny Vega, a 24-year-old fashion photography student at the Fashion Institute of Technology. What went from a casual hook up turned into a serious, closed polyamorous relationship. Franco, Mark, and Vinny have been together for two years. “I talk about my boyfriends proudly," Vega explains. "I know it’s hard for people to accept. I don’t really care if people accept me or not." There's an age gap within their relationship: DiLuzio is 45, Lander is 41, and at 24, Vinny is the youngest. As the men explain candidly, this age difference creates different dynamics between the three of them. “My relationship with Mark is lover and husband. And my relationship with Vinny is lover and son—even though there’s a sexual aspect to it,” DiLuzio says. “I think the type of nurturing we both give to Vinny is more of a parental kind of guideline, as well as a boyfriend guideline.” While this relationship works for the three of them, there have been critics along the way. Lander admits that most people have a negative opinion about them. “I find that gay men have the most problem with it. Whereas my straight friends look at it and say, ‘oh, there’s three of you now!’ And the gay friends were more wanting to have that traditional guideline,” DiLuzio says, explaining that their gay friends often looked up to his relationship with Lander as an example of a strong, monogamous relationship. But for DiLuzio, he doesn’t think that Vega was brought into his relationship with Lander because something was missing. “I still believe that Mark and I have a strong relationship. And bringing Vinny in was an addition to the relationship,” DiLuzio says. Even though they’ve only been together for two years, Vega feels he can see himself together with DiLuzio and Lander for the next 20. “I don’t think I can ever leave because I am very much in love with Franco and Mark," Vega says. "I feel like they are the two pieces of my heart.”
Apparently, the finale is this Monday but, the show just started up again at the end of February. WTF, a 7 episode season?
It seems every day sees a new call for the Webmaster to ban someone for daring to talk about something other than some pop cultural fossil, so I have a modest proposal: ban everyone. That's right, I said it. Make this site so exclusive, no one will be allowed to post on it.

[quote]I started having pain in the testicles, i figured i sat down to fast and injured myself, upon doing the self-exam i noticed a lump. I went to my primary care doctor, the medical assistant wanted to know the exact reason, I told her "non specific male issues" she did not like this. Once the doctor finally checked he ordered a STAT testicular ultrasound. I called to book the test, i was told my techs name, she was obviously female, i asked for a male tech, i was denied as they didnt employee male ultrasound techs, I refused to be exposed infront of any females. [quote]Once I was out of surgery in post op i remember the female nurse trying to lift the blankets to place an ice pack on my groin instinctively i hit the blanket down and said NO (the first time i spoke since waking up) The doctor came over and told the nurse as he placed it from the other side. Not to expose the patient and if anything was needed that they were to call him to do it. I got dressed and moved to the discharge nurse, due to the type of surgery i was required to urinate prior to discharge, after being hounded, I finally had the urge, when i got up to go into the bathrom the female nurse tried to follow me into the bathroom, my brother (he is a BIG boy) kind of pushed his way in behind me this nurse was MAD she was huffing and puffing her attitude, and slammed the door shut. She looked back towards my bay where my mother was sitting watching the nurses behavior. the nurse was mumbling giving my mom dirty looks. I always get told "its just another body part its no big deal to us" but not one nurse can explain to me that if it is not a big deal to see it, why is it a big deal NOT to see it ? Email me if you guys have any questions so it can be posted I do want to share my story so others know they CAN stand up for themselves !
Man Who Had Lump in Testicles From Las Vegas NV
Who are the actresses and actors (and directors and writers) who fucked themselves the worst, and lost the potential of great careers over a long period of time? Aside from the obvious picks of psychological messes such as Marilyn, and Montgomery Clift (who didn't do too bad even if they were self-destructive), who could have been better or bigger but threw it all away? I think Mickey Rourke had a lot more going for him than he ever managed to make happen. He killed it. KZJ may have picked up an underserved Oscar for reasons beyond my comprehension, but her combined mental and substance issues really screwed what could have been a wonderful career. Just go back to her big break in ZORRO and see how great she could have been. Bening fucked herself with that marriage. What was she thinking. THE GRIFTERS alone is evidence enough of someone who should have had a huge career, not just one that has always felt like "almost" and "yeah, but." AMERICAN BEAUTY should have had a series of similar accomplishments. Some people might include Winona Ryder here, but I think she's an example of someone who did well for no reason associated with talent. Inept at every turn. Her klepto mess was just the public piece of a great disorder that spared us even more bad performances, right? Glenda Jackson is a special case - she hit the top of her niche and stayed there a while, and then walked away. A rational career destruction.

“Ever since Bryan Singer first talked to me about shooting the first one in Toronto back in 1999, I’ve been on side. Why? He explained to me that the three largest audience groups for the X-Men comics are young blacks, young gays and young Jews. “They are people who’ve been made to feel like mutants by society, so of course they can all relate with the plight of the mutants in the story. At its most profound, basic level, it’s a movie about civil rights.”

Someone snatched all of my pics off of a hookup site and posted them on Tumblr. My dick pics have been making the rounds on the internets for some time now and it's no big deal because none of them show my face, but this asshole took it upon himself to post my face pic (which was kept private on the hookup site) as well. I'm not sure if I should be mortified or flattered? Luckily they're all good pics of me. I think they're going viral…the number of notes keeps climbing every time I check the post. This must've been how Paris Hilton felt.
Back in the 1980s,there was a BBC tv programme called The Kenny Everett Show. Kenny Everett was a comedian and he used to have various characters he''d do, Sid Snot – a punk rocker, Tinsel-Man - an effeminate superhero, Cupid Stunt - an American sex-kitten and others.\ \ Kenny Everett had started out as as a presenter on BBC radio in the early sixties. He then went on to work as a pirate radio deejay where he became immensely popular.\ \ He married the singer Lee ''Lady Lee'' Middleton in 1966. By 1979 they had separated, and Everett came out as gay. He launched himself into the London gay club scene, and could often be seen in London club Heaven in the 1980s (then a very popular clubbing destination) on Saturday nights.\ \ Everett had been told in 1989 that he had HIV. It is believed he caught it from Freddie Mercury''s partner, with whom he''d also had a relationship. He died from an AIDS-related illness, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London, on 4 April 1995, aged 50.\ \ Clips of his show at link.

Is he gay?
Blogs about it on HuffPost, of course.
I remember when this aired years ago on FOX. He's such a cutie. Liked seeing Amanda Bearse showing off in her neighborhood that she lived right down the street from the real Brady Bunch house.
You already know him as one of the most powerful men in Hollywood. You may or may not know that he is gay. But what you probably don’t know is that he uses his money and his power to maintain a harem of boys. We’ll call him Duffy. He keeps between five and eight boys at a time. All of his boys are over 21. While some men prefer twinks, Duffy prefers studs. Great-looking, hard-bodied young studs. The Duffy Boys are a multi-ethnic bunch. Black, white, hispanic, mixed. All really handsome. If one of them walked past you on the street, you would definitely turn your head. He pays each of the Duffy Boys approximately $5000 a month. He also buys each of them a luxury car of their choice (usually a Mercedes or a BMW). Duffy owns fabulous homes and toys, is a respected power player in films, music, art, politics, and philanthropy, and knows absolutely everyone, so there are lots of other perqs for the Duffy Boys as well… especially if they are trying to make it in Hollywood. We know of at least one famous actor who started out as a Duffy Boy. Duffy calls them in “to work” on a regular basis. “Work” always takes place at his house, where he feels safe. He loves to give oral sex to them, and he likes being a “bottom.” But his very favorite thing to do is to call in all the Duffy Boys to work at once… and watch them have group sex with each other. A job as a Duffy Boy only lasts for a couple of years. Since they are over 21 to begin with, it usually only takes two or three years before they start aging out of the Duffy Boy system. If they have done their job well, they are set up with a job in the entertainment industry. They get a generous severance package. They get to keep the luxury car.

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000′ Reboot May Come Online in Not-Too-Distant Future APRIL 22, 2014 | 06:07PM PT; Maane Khatchatourian On the heels of the 25th anniversary of its premiere, the cult comedy series “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ may be rebooted in the not-too-distant future. Show creator-writer-producer Joel Hodgson, who hosted the sci-fi series from 1988–1993, told Wired that he plans to revive the show online this spring. “MST3K” was cancelled in 1999 after 11 years on the air. Comedy Central dropped the show in its seventh season and the Sci-Fi Channel picked it up after audiences fought to keep the series alive. “I’ve talked to a bunch of fans about their lives and what ‘MST3K’ means to them,” Hodgson told the magazine. “I’m overwhelmed by how people took to that show. It really affected them. I thought, if enough people still love it, maybe we can bring it back.” The resurrected web show will feature a new host and cameos from “MST3K” alumni. “Even avid viewers sometimes don’t realize that every major role in the show had been swapped out over time,” he said. “So in my mind, the show is built to be refreshed with new people and new ideas. It’s like Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle as it applies to ‘MST3K’: If it doesn’t change, it’s not the same show. And fortunately for us, as long as there are movies, there are always going to be cheesy movies.” The “MST3K” team “reunited” earlier this month to bring the “RiffTrax” show to the National Geographic Channel. “Total Riff Off,” a three-hour April Fool’s special, found the gang overdubbing nature shows that included “Honey Badgers,” “Unlikely Animal Friends” and “Swamp Men.”
I don't have the highest expectations that it will be a particularly beautiful baby, but I'm happy for Hillary. Will being a granny persuade her to stay off the campaign trail?

This is *my* definition of a perfect body. Also, the hair on his chest and stomach is perfection. Thanks you Nick!
Certainly one of the more unexpected properties to serve as the basis for a narrative feature, Deadline reports that Just Born, Incorporated's marshmallow Peeps are being targeted for the big screen. Underdog scribe Adam Rifkin has secured the rights to the sugary treats and will be providing the screenplay. The Peeps movie is planned to take place on the eve of the annual Peeps diorama contest. The heroic lead Peep will have to journey through various other dioramas (and their respective fantasy environments) to return to its rightful home. Likened to The LEGO Movie, the Peeps film hopes to also make use of other intellectual property characters, although none have as of yet been revealed. Originally created in 1952, Peeps have become a mainstay of Easter baskets and are now available in a number of different flavors and varieties.
7-1/2 minutes of movie, alternating with 3-1/2 minutes of commercials. Never again!
Any overlap with the Singer case?

I was reading this on Jezebel and it's hard to tell whether o = We have never figured this out. And now, the three living witnesses have to be good and fucking druuuunk to discuss the whole thing. I was 7, my brother 10, my mom in her early 40s, my grandmother (her mom) in her 60′s. So we were all cogent. No one was too young or too senile to not recall this nonsense. Yet, still no bloody answer. Grandma lived on an isolated country road in NC that was named after her family since they were the only crazy fuckers who lived on the land for about 1000 acres. And I *do* mean crazy. We have stories about relatives that start with, “You remember that time Uncle Bob was in the ditch with a shotgun?” “WHICH TIME?!” Her house had been empty for several weeks while she’d been visiting us in Florida, but we were all back, spending the weekend with her before trekking back to the Sunshine state. The house is in the foreal country, literally over train-tracks, past a salvage yard and her nearest neighbor (a cousin — everyone is related to everyone who owns a house on the road) ain’t within screamin’ distance. Yes, that seems to be a real system of measurement — “screaming distance.” It’s early in the AM, like just before daybreak. We’re awake because these are farm freaks who wake at the crack of dawn from sheer ingrained habit. We’re eating cereal when we hear someone pull up outside. Curious, we all run to the big picture window that looks onto the front yard. There is a strange truck there. No one seems to be behind the wheel, though the engine is idling. The truck is… well, old, for one thing. It’s old-timey like from maybe the 1930′s? You could picture the Joad Family heading to California in this thing. It’s rusted but it was probably once painted blue. We stare at the thing, bewildered. Mom asks grandma if she knows who that is. Nope, not a clue, says grandma. She runs to get the phone to call her cousin and ask him to come up — she thinks maybe it’s a hired hand and he’s just at the wrong farm. Just as she asks him to come on down, the phone goes dead. Well. That’s unsettling. All at once, there is a loud, insistent banging on the front door. We all scream. My grandma, who is terrifyingly resourceful, huddles us all into the living room, away from a window where anyone can see us. Then, while mom, me and my brother tremble there on the couch, she grabs a serrated bread knife from the kitchen and cautiously approaches the front door. She peeks out a side window, very stealthily. She turns back to us and looks confused. She shakes her head, like, “No one is there.” We all kind of breathe easier. Then EVERY goddamn door in the house is banging — relentlessly. I can still hear it. Rhythmic and terrifying, like all the doors are about to splinter and crack. There were two doors in the basement beneath us, so the sound is also a reverberation at our feet. The three ground-floor doors are shaking — we can see them trembling and jerking on their hinges from our vantage point on the couch. Finally, mom runs to the window — either from a psychotic break with reality or terror, I have no clue. She cries, “Oh thank Christ — Cousin is here!” We run to her and peek out the picture window — there is no one that we can see in the yard, but we can’t see all the doors from our viewpoint. Cousin walks by truck with a shotgun in his hand. Cousin, it should be noted, has pretty much every gun ever made. He looks puzzled, looking at the rear of the truck, then he glances in the cab window and he stops. He goes pale, runs a hand down his face. Then he RUNS towards to house, towards us. My grandmother flings open the kitchen door as she sees him coming. He shouts, “Everyone get behind the couch! Get DOWN!” He runs past us as we bolt for the couch. The banging starts AGAIN, all the doors and now we can hear the windows rattle. It’s like a tornado or the end of the world. We are too scared to even scream. Cousin flings open the front door and fires the huge shotgun, once, BANG, deafening. As he does, the truck roars into life and it sounds lik
New movie written by Joss Whedon released online today for $5. It's really good. I do like Whedon but the big draw for me was Michael Stahl David. And I do have an affinity for sci-fi/romances.
The previous thread "Most annoying NPR voice" reached 600 in May 2013. When it began in May 2010, Eleanor Beardsley got the most slams. Then Zoe Chace was hired by Planet Money. There were some really funny posts about the queen of vocal fry.
Upcoming NBC mimiseries. What say we?

I know he''s a dorky 35 year old, but I''ve always fantasied that he has a big schwantz.
Something I NEVER thought would happen again. He may just have a hit on his hands....

how long do the cravings really take to fade? Because I'm at about week seven or eight and I still yearn for it like I'd do something dirty for one smoke. I know I've quit for good this time, but, fuck, there are still points I'd sin for a cigarette.
