The trailer is out! And it looks like Jimmy is finally getting some vagine. But still no phallic entertainment on the horizon for Thomas. Bloody bollocks! Even the poor sodomites need companionship in this post-War era! Isobel, could you ring us up some tea, dear?
As well as Vanessa Hudgens, Avril Lavigne, Kaley Cuoco, etc.
It looks like the rumors were true: Colin Farrell has confirmed that he'll star in the second season of True Detective. In an interview with the Irish newspaper The Sunday World, he said, "I’m so excited...I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids." The paper reports that the plot will center on a "bloody murder of a corrupt city businessman found dead the night before a major transportation deal" with "three police officials from different cities" trying to solve it. As for who else will be joining him? Considering that everyone from Elisabeth Moss to Jessica Biel has been thrown into the rumor mill, it's safe to say that we'll just know when we know.

I'm taking my comedy show on the road and would really appreciate any hilarious material about how I look or smell. Post your comments here.
The answer is no, which means we are in big trouble in another 30 years. It's going to be tragic in Palm Springs, Ft. Lauderdale, Brooklyn, Portland and Seattle. Ugh!

Here are a few I can think of: VHS vs. Beta SD Cards vs. XD, Compact Flash, Memory Stick Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD Apple/Android vs. BlackBerry (the jury is still out on Windows) AC vs. DC 110 vs. 220 Comments? Thoughts? Others?
As requested . . . I'll start . . . Will Patricia Arquette go for Lead Or Supporting in Boyhood? And is Richard Linklater a lock for Best Director? Will Michael Keaton get his first nomination and resurrect his career with Birdman? Who is more likely for Supporting Actress in that film - Emma Stone or Naomi Watts? And can Foxcatcher deliver nominations for Steve Carrell and Channing Tatum?
Drama post, but here goes. I've been in this neighbourhood for about 10 years, and everything was fine. But as the street has changed, and new people moved in I feel like I'm being ganged up on and harassed. My next door neighbour was letting his dog shit on my lawn. I told him to keep his dog off my grass, but he ignored me. I called animal control and the day the officer showed up, the guys dog was shitting on my lawn. The officer did not give him a warning, but issued a $375 ticket and said if it happened again he would have the dog removed from the owner. The owner was pissed at me, and I found out today he has been calling around pretending to be me and trying to have my electricity, water and gas turned off. He has not been successful since he doesn't have my account numbers. The neighbour who told me what he was doing doesn't want to get involved, so I can't go to the police since I have no proof. My other neighbour has started playing hockey and basketball against my back fence until late at night. After a few weeks, I finally called the police to complain and he was also fined for disturbing the peace. So then he started throwing his garbage and grass clippings into my backyard. Another call to the police and once again he is fined. He's made it clear he will get even with me. Lastly, my garbage has not been picked up regularly. Turns out the neighbour with the dog, pretending to be me, managed to piss off the local garbage collection company and they have been avoiding my house as punishment. I was able to fix this this afternoon, but it still makes me angry. It's getting to the point that I think I need to sell and move elsewhere. I used to love this street, but now it feels like I'm a stranger here and that I'm surrounded by enemies not of my own making. I won't go outside when the neighbours are out, I avoid eye contact with everyone, I worry that someone will do something to my house or car when I'm not home. I'm a nervous wreck. The neighbour who confided in me about the dog owner said I should have just ignored it all, but fuck me I will not clean up someones elses dog shit, or be kept up at night because of a basketball game.

For the stupid bitch in the "Scariest Fan Base" thread... [italic]Janet Jackson's 'Rhythm Nation 1814' Revisited By Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis: Track-by-Track Review[/italic] If Janet Jackson's third album, 1986's Control, was a declaration of independence, the follow-up, Rhythm Nation 1814, was a constitution -- a blueprint for the kind of country that this confident, sexy and newly independent 23-year old woman wanted to live in. At least it was for roughly a third of its runtime. Released 25 years ago tomorrow (Sept. 19, 1989), Rhythm Nation 1814 begins with a pledge: "We are a nation with no geographic boundaries, bound together through our beliefs." From there, it goes into the title track, a national anthem for this colorblind utopia Janet has imagined. The four digits in the album's title refer to the year "The Star-Spangled Banner" was written, and with the help of James "Jimmy Jam" Harris III and Terry Lewis -- the production team behind Control -- Jackson gives Francis Scott Key's greatest hit a New Jack Swing remake. Rhythm Nation stays political for a few songs and then segues into kinder, gentler relationship songs, many of which dominated radio and MTV. An unprecedented seven of the album's singles made the Top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100, and four of them -- "Miss You Much, "Escapade," "Love Will Never Do (Without You)" and "Black Cat" -- hit No. 1. The album, not surprisingly, topped the Billboard 200, vaulting Janet to a level of pop mega-stardom almost on par with that of her brother Michael Jackson. In honor of the record's silver anniversary, Jam and Lewis led Billboard on a track-by-track trek down Memory Lane, offering their thoughts on the disc's 13 non-interlude songs. The duo produced and wrote or co-wrote all but one, the hard-rock detour "Black Cat," which Janet penned and helmed herself. Read on to see how these Minneapolis legends remember Janet's breakout LP. "Rhythm Nation" Jimmy Jam: It needed to be anthemic. That was the whole point. It was the anchor of the album, the title track. I think we really achieved it. It has a great energy. The thing to remember, as I always say with all of Janet's stuff, is that she's such a visual artist. It's really hard to listen to the song and not think of the imagery and all the choreography that go along with it. That's the bonus we get with a record like that. We get to see the performance that goes along with it. "State of the World" Terry Lewis: At the time, we were trying to make some statements about worldly things. The song was created from conversation. We used to talk about everything before we would even engage in starting a song. We went on talking tirades, just conversational tirades, trying to figure out not only what was going on in the world, but what was going on in Janet's head. I don't think it's overtly political. It's just drawing attention to the things of the time. In the history of music, there's always been a social commentary with most artists that were substantial artists. You can only talk about so much love and clubs. You have to bring some awareness and have a voice in the times that you live in. That happens to be one of those songs. "The Knowledge" Lewis: We got the song title in London. We were speaking to a cab driver. Over there, every cab driver knows how to get everywhere, because they take a test that's kind of like a map quiz. They know every street, every address in London. It's called "The Knowledge." When we heard that title, we wrote it down. When we had discussions about all these different things -- social commentary -- "The Knowledge" just popped up. And with Janet being associated in a lot of different ways with education, it just seemed fitting to use that subject matter and fuse it all together."

He says he’s a connoisseur of the “ass grab” — but this waitress just wasn’t on his menu. A wealthy hedge-fund titan made a bungled attempt to defend himself against a claim that he fondled a waitress at a trendy Soho restaurant, by bizarrely bragging that he gropes other women all the time. “I’ve grabbed plenty of girls’ asses in my life,” Brian H. Lederman boasted to The Post. “But I’ve never grabbed hers.” The married moneyman went on the defensive Tuesday after server Laura Ramadei made a tell-all Facebook post saying he ogled her like a piece of meat as he fondled her derriere at Lucky Strike on Grand Street. “When I asked you and your companion if you’d be eating, or needing anything else from me, you put your hand — ever so gently — ON MY ASS and asked if you could take me ‘to go,’ ” the 29-year-old wrote, adding that he left only a $2 tip. Lederman, a 57-year-old managing director at Swiss Performance Management & Fiduciary, angrily denied any physical contact — and threatened to sue Ramadei for defamation. But he didn’t help his case much by admitting he made a boorish comment toward her. “I clearly remember making a joke when the girl said, ‘What would you like,’ ” he said. “I kiddingly said, ‘I would like you to go with nothing on it.’ ” He said he was furious that she claimed he did more than spew sleaze. “That f–king c–t, for her to do something like that is pretty ridiculous,” he told The Post. He then threatened to make sure she doesn’t serve lunch in this town again. “I will make sure she doesn’t get another job in New York City. I know everybody,” he raged. “The bar owners, the club owners — that’s a terrible thing to write about somebody.” Ramadei, an aspiring actress who helps run an independent theater company, stood by her Facebook post. “He placed what felt like three fingers on my left butt cheek,” she told The Post. “It was very subtle, but it was definite contact.” She posted a picture of the money manager’s $15.24 bar tab on the social network. Ramadei said she deals with customer harassment all the time working at the noisy bar and posted her story to “raise awareness about how common it is.” Her rant has been shared almost 2,000 times since she posted it on Monday. “It was a small thing, but probably commonplace for women and servers,” she said.

Hey guys! I just wanted some advice. I actually posted a while back about my sleaze bag company changing our position duties and cutting our pay. ( I am in sales).. I stuck it out. About 20% of the salesforce quit so far. And the numbers after all this are disastrous. So that is somewhat satisfying. Anyway, I am beyond burnt out, cannot sleep at night, and need a 4 week break. I have a year's salary saved up and could live on that for 12-16 months. But this is all I have and it was supposed to be a down payment for a house. I have also made all of my car payments (7 months ahead) and I am paid up through May 2015. My goal is to make it through Thanksgiving, quit this hellhole, and actually enjoy the holidays. And yes I know Jan-March will be next to impossible to find a job. These days, is it really suicide to NOT have a job when looking for another? America kind of blows that way. I really want a break. For the first time in my life I understand what burnt out means. It has really fucked with my confidence and outlook.
There a several small antique shops in my city, and invariably the owners are older people with money. Usually a BMW, or Mercedes, or Jag, and in one case a Bentley, is parked outside. The stuff inside is usually grossly overpriced junk picked up from garage sales. I have to assume these shops are just a way for people with too much money and time to waste their days--usually women--or tax shelters.
He was with his sister or girl friend. He's a mtof transter. He was quite tall for female and in a halter top with heavy necklace. Quite amusingly sweet. I tried not to stare, but he really looked like a guy in girl summer clothes. He seemed to have real female breasts but the voice was a dead giveaway. Gawd, I'm really grateful that I don't have any delusions of being a female.
I am a white man. Society has designated that I fit into the racial category of “white” - a category specifically created in the 1600s to create racial allies and a racial identity with the purpose of controlling African slave revolts in the Americas. Whiteness was created to support slavery. In fact, it’s feasible if the concept of a white race of people was never created that slavery would have ended far earlier than it did, African people would have taken over many colonies and towns, and the United States may never have existed. White identity was created not to bring people together under a common culture, but to designate who was not white, and thus who deserves less rights. The exact same thing is true today. We live in a racist and white supremacist world that began in the 1600s. People accept race as a given in western culture, and since western culture dominates the world, racism dominates the world. The reality is that the idea of race, the socially constructed definition of race we all take for granted, is a very new and very terrible concept. When people ask me who I am, ethnically, I do not identify as white. I am white, I know that everyone and society sees me as white, that I have the privileges that come with being white, but I do not personally identify as white because doing so supports the racist world we live in. So, when people ask me, I say I’m Jewish Russian and German, and Christian Italian. If people ask me why I don’t identify as white I give the previous explanation and explain that I am anti-white. I am anti-white because white people should not exist. The very existence of the concept of white people, of a ‘white race’, creates oppression. There is no such thing as white people. In fact, there is no such thing as any race, however there is a major difference between identifying as white as opposed to identifying as black, for example. Black people identify as black because of the shared cultural history they have through the African diaspora. Black people exist, black pride exists, in reaction to the racism and oppression black people have suffered and do suffer. Which also goes to explain why white pride is inherently racist. What have white people - white people as a group, not a person or group of persons who happen to be white - ever done, EVER, that is good? Nothing. Slavery, apartheid, the criminal justice system, Jim Crow, etc. those are all white creations. There are many things that have come from groups of white people that are important and great, but they didn’t come from those people because of whiteness - they came because of some other identity. Seriously - sit there and try to wrap your brain around anything that white people, as specifically white people, have ever done that was good. I bet you can’t. And that’s why I’m anti-white. I want to live in a world where people are appreciated for their diverse history, beliefs, ethnicity, culture, etc. I do not want to live in a world where whiteness exists because that means that white supremacy exists as well. I remember the first time I saw a Black Panther speak and he addressed everyone in the crowd and said, “I also want to thank my European-American friends for coming. And I call you that because that is who you are, you should not call yourselves white.” And went on to talk about much of what I just said.
Addressing the crowd, George said: “I met my lovely bride-to-be here in Italy, whom I will be marrying, in a couple of weeks, in Venice, of all places.” According to the insider: “They want the wedding to be intimate with quiet but happy and fun dinners and lunches after they've said short but meaningful, hand-written vows in front of their loved ones.” Photos:

There were very few major hits but she tried working with different styles and producers: the Bee Gees, Michael Jackson, Hall& Oats, et alia. Looks like there is a major Rossapalooza in October with all of the RCA releases. Which do you think is the best and worth revisiting?
Gal still looks amazing at 80. Have a great day Sophia. I love those early 50s Italian films of hers, before Hollywood came calling. She is terrific in SCANDAL IN SORRENTO, WOMAN OF THE RIVER, TWO NIGHTS WITH CLEOPATRA, GOLD OF NAPLES, LUCKY TO BE A WOMAN, TOO BAD SHES BAD etc. She was in about 8 movies in 1954, her breakout year, 60 years ago, since she began as a teenage extra somewhere in QUO VADIS in 1951. I like those early American ones of hers: BOY ON A DOLPHIN, LEGEND OF THE LOST, HOUSEBOAT, IT STARTED IN NAPLES (where Gable must have been about 30 years older than her), she has a delicious sense of comedy too, as per her record album with Peter Sellers in 1960 (he, like Cary Grant, was besotted with her). She is terrific in EL CID and FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE and even makes THE CASSANDRA CROSSING bearable. Shame her films with Brando and Newman, Burton and O'Toole were not better, but her ones with Marcello Mastroianni are endlessly enjoyable. It was good to see her back at Cannes and at other events this year, and she did that 30 minute film with her son. Life in the old gal yet. but of course 80 is the new 70 these days.
The French Maritime Gendarmerie, a division of the French Navy responded to distress calls from 10 persons aboard a 120' luxury yacht cruising off of the coast of St. Tropez. Actress Janet Jackson was reportedly vacationing aboard the privately chartered vessel.

Due to severe weather conditions and rough seas, rescue teams were forced to retreat.
Over the years I've run into a large number of people from all walks of like who genuinely feel they are under a curse. Some of them think they know who put the curse on them and why. Others feel they were born into a generational curse. Others have no clue as to why they are cursed. Do you believe in curses? Have you experienced one? I'll go first. I once got into an argument with a self-professed Satanist online. He threatened to put a curse on me. I laughed it off. Within three weeks my dog began acting weird. She refused to eat, drink or lie down. She would just sit up staring into the distance. If you pushed her down she would get right back up. We took her to the vet and she was diagnosed with cancer and had to be put down. Then while driving to work early in the morning a torrential downpour of rain happened right out of the blue. In an instant the highway became slick as ice and I lost control of the car. I ricocheted back an forth between the barriers five or six time before my car finally spun all the way around and came to a complete stop. The car was totaled. Without transportation I was not able to go to work as I was communicating a very long distance and had to resign. So within three weeks of being cursed I lost my dog, my car and my job. Ask me if I believe in curses and I'm afraid to say that I do.

I just got Netflix, so please help me with suggestions. I love documentaries about true crime, unsolved mysteries, the supernatural and the paranormal. The scarier, the better. I've recently watched "Six Degrees of Helter Skelter" (fabulous - best thing ever about the Tate LaBianca murders), as well as documentaries about The Toynbee Tiles and The Dyatlov Pass Incident. TIA!
Very draggy looking, as well. I haven't seen her in years, so was kind of shocked.
What the fuck?
I was listening to one of Howard Stern's interviews with her the other day, and it sounded like she really did not care for that husband of hers at all. She cheated on him several times, and even left him for another man once. What was the story there? I've heard that Edgar was a closet case. I never cared much for Joan, but her life seems so interesting. I get the overwhelming impression that she is incredibly bitter and angry, though.
I have a 65 lb. puppy. He's awesome. Very smart border collie mix. I want to take him into Manhattan. The last time we did it, he was less than half his current size. No carrier; he sat on my lap and people either didn't notice him or went gaga for him. I know dogs can be taken on the train if they're in some sort of carrier (the MTA rules are utterly vague about the carrier). Surely there are other owners of large dogs among us here who've done it. How did you? We live in Astoria but nowhere near the 59th St Bridge, so it'd be a heck of a hike just starting out.

By request. Original author says it's a shocking decision to hire Pratt as The Young and the Restless's head writer.
Peaky Blinders star Tom Hardy has reportedly tied the knot with his actress fiancée. Hearts. Break. Everywhere. The 37-year-old hunk, who has been dating Charlotte Riley since 2009, married in the South of France and managed to keep it a secret for more than two months. How they managed to keep that quiet, we're not too sure. Tom and Charlotte, 32, decided it would be an intimate affair and were joined by a small group of friends and family at the 18th-century castle Chateau de Roussan in Provence on July 4. The actor has a six-year-old son, Louis, by ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed, who was also at the wedding. A family source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "It was a beautiful, low-key day made even more special because they just had their closest friends and family around them. "Tom's son Louis played a key role during the ceremony. And they made certain to pick a stunning and private setting. "There was nothing flash about the wedding, they always said they wanted it to be about the two of them and their family rather than any grand gesture." Tom, who joins the cast of period crime drama Peaky Blinders in October, blamed his former drug addiction for the breakdown of his first marriage to Sarah Ward, who he split from in 2004 after five years. Tom and Charlotte met in on the set of ITV's Wuthering Heights in 2009 and he popped the question a year later. Charlotte previously talked about getting married, saying: "We are desperate to do it, but I’ll never have a celebrity wedding. It will be low-key, with family and friends." It sounds like it was the perfect day for the perfect couple. ~.~.~.~.~.~. i don't care if he's married he's still bi
It's called AB 1014. The bill allows for any citizen to file a complaint saying they "believe" that a gun owner is a threat to the public and then a judge will rule. If the judge rules the gun owner is a threat then his or her guns will be confiscated by police and they will be banned from owning guns. This may sound good at first but there's a problem. The main problem is that it's a witch hunt. Here's why. No judge wants to be the one who said a person isn't a danger and risk having that person later kill someone. So there will be intense pressure put on judges to rule that a person is a threat. So everyone accused will be found "guilty", just as in the witch trials of the past. Second, this opens up a huge can of worms with regard to people seeking petty revenge on people by filing a complaint, again something well known to have occurred rather frequently during with hunts. From the inquisition, to Salem, to McCarthysim, and now AB 1014. This is a very horrible path to voluntarily travel. One would have hoped that people would learn from history. I guess that history is indeed bound to repeat itself. The bill is nicknamed the Elliot Rodgers bill.

After 13 years with my Honda Accord LX, I'm probably going to get a new car at the end of summer 2015. ("New" as in new for me. Could be brand new or used). Starting to check things out now. Looking at small SUVs and mid-sized sedans, nothing particularly unique as a lot of these are best sellers - Honda-CRV, Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forrester, Hyundai Tucscon and Santa Fe, Nissan Altima, Mazda 6, just to name a few. I've always wanted leather interior. It's not a deal breaker if I can't, but, again, it's just something I've wanted. But, I've noticed that for nearly all non-luxury cars now, you can't get leather until you get up into the highest trim level (the most expensive). Am I remembering things incorrectly, or did you used to be able to get leather interior in some of these cars (not all) at lower trim levels? Not the lowest, but the middle of 3, or if there were 4 trim levels, then at least at level 3. I could buy a used car at a higher trim level I guess.
NEIL PATRICK HARRIS AND DAVID BURTKA REENACT SCENE FROM 'LADY AND THE TRAMP' To promote his new book, Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography, the recently married actor released a trailer to give you a taste of what his 'choose your own adventure' style bio will be like, as BuzzFeed points out. In the video, a host of Neil Patrick Harrises proliferate onscreen, looking like a very NPH Brady Bunch. In each separate window Neil offers an entertaining alternative from hearing him talk about his new book. Our favorite definitely has to be the "romantical" moment in the upper left hand corner where Harris and husband David Burtka share a plate of spaghetti and meatballs, recreating the iconic first kiss scene from Disney's Lady and the Tramp.

Matt Damon leaves the Coldplay (Chris Martin and Jennifer Lawrence) concert after watching the live performance surrounded by some security on Wednesday (September 17) in Los Angeles. The day before, the 43-year-old actor was seen out to dinner just after news broke that he would potentially be reprising his role in the Bourne series! George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin‘s guest list was just leaked and Matt is expected to be attending the big affair happening soon. Bono, Ellen Barkin, Sandra Bullock, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts‘ names are also on the list, according to THR. Matt and George have starred in the Ocean’s Eleven series and Monuments Men together.

Does anyone remember these stereo consoles? Some of them were really fantastic looking vintage/modern pieces. Loved pulling out an album and hearing the music crackle through the speakers. Mouthing the words to a Streisand song was probably right behind dialing the phone with a pencil in the List of 101 Signs Your Son Will Be Gay.
I know this has probably been a topic here before but I wanted to open this thread anyway…. Antenna TV has been running Maude and just re-ran the end of the show this week (and is now starting with Season1 again) so it's the first time in a long time that the later seasons have been shown. Has anyone else been watching? I really liked Mrs. Naugatuck, wondering why they wrote her out…it seemed like in the last season they were trying to make the show "younger". Any favorite episodes? (Oh, and PS - I love the Golden Girls too but there's been about ten jillion GG threads. Would love to hear from ppl who have seen this show - which is my favorite of Bea's.)

This is from Entertainment Lawyer: For all of his career, this mostly movie actor never got above B-list, although he co-starred in some A+ list movies. He raised eyebrows when his wives began to look the same and he went behind the camera in an attempt to make them bigger names. Especially the last one, who said she was underage when she first met and then married him. Although all of his wives knew (hell, they probably knew right away after he didn't sleep with them!), the public didn't know that he was gay. He got his first movie contract after having sex with his male agent, who "discovered" him after hiring him as an escort for a one-night stand. Towards the end of his life, he hired a male escort and contracted HIV, which his publicists quickly covered up and said he had lung cancer.
Eli just got sacked AND managed to fumble the ball. He was saved by a Cardinals penalty, but still. They are a disaster. Who cares if he has two rings. He needs to be sent packing.
I fill out application after application.\ \ They supposedly want to give dogs a new home, right? Well you can''t prove it by me.\ \ This is the typical scenario:\ \ I get accepted for a particular dog.\ \ And that''s when the fun starts...\ \ "We feed only raw food and insist you do too."\ \ "We are volunteers so even though that puppy has been on our site for a week, it will take a week or two or three to get back to you." And then I never hear back from them. \ \ "The dog''s foster family decided to keep it."\ \ "Yes we have other dogs - you''re approved - just pick one" And then I do and I never hear back from them. \ \ I follow up with a call or an email and still get no response.\ \ Whats with these nutcases? Do they get off on this or what?\ \ I mean - I''ve been approved, but they won''t give me a fucking dog?
The season is off and running, and already we welcome a new member (David McElwee's) to the Broadway BD Club. The game is afoot!
You knew this was coming. What I can't understand is, why did they almost never talk about their children?
Was their bitch slapping? Cries of racism? Cries of ageism? Did M just sit back and observe with the bemused dignity of a two time winner?
Anyone here have one? Are they good phones?
I''ve been watching the DVDs. It''s a great show. \ \ It''s 15 years old, so some of the minor details are a bit dated, but even that is fascinating. For example: Ted (the main character) receives a phone call at a fancy restaurant. When''s the last time we saw THAT as a plot point (in this age of smart phones.)\ \ And love John Fleck as Louis, the control freak and out gay HBIC of running the office!
She's got her claws out for a lot of the contestants. They better look out.

Quinn Jaxon's new thread, since the last one got closed...
It starts tonight on CBS, probably late because of football. Will Alicia run for State's Attorney? Will Florrick/Agos become Lockhart/Florrick/Agos? Will Louis Canning finally die? All this, and hopefully some shirtless Matt Czuchry, tonight.
I'm Cora's slight head tilt as she benevolently "tsk tsks" about something the Earl says.
I just discovered that ESPN Classic (a channel I would NEVER otherwise watch) seems to be re-running these classics from the 70s and 80s. Today I saw the swimming competition featuring Daniel J. Travanti, Mark Harmon, Heather Thomas, Cristina Raines, Telma Hopkins, Doug Barr, et. al. and featuring Broadway star Brian Stokes Mitchell! (From when he was on "Trapper John, MD," I assume.) And hosted by .... Howard Cosell!
I enjoyed her in Silk, where she played a driven, intelligent QC. She reminds me a little bit of Miranda Richardson. She's getting great reviews for playing Hamlet. Any other fans?

Talkin about gay guys, not women.
When I was younger I definitely believed and have heard personal tales from people who claimed to have seen one. However, as an adult I tend to think they didn't exist. Now I'm not sure. My own personal theory is that perhaps Bigfoot is nothing more than feral humans. If a breeding population of feral humans existed in N.America then they would quickly adapt to the cold winters via natural selection. This would mean that those offspring that were hairy would survive and spread their genes. We also know that another adaptation to cold climates is to grow larger. That's why most of the animals of the ice ages were so big because large animals lose heat slower than smaller animals. Therefore it is possible that a breeding population of feral humans could become hairier and larger than non-feral humans within just a few generations. If the initial breeding pairs of feral humans were literally feral from an early age they would not have developed socially and would be incapable of passing socialization skills onto their offspring. They would be illiterate and may never develop the need to even make tools, other than rocks and sticks that can be easily found in nature. What says you? Of course I think it's also possible that Bigfoot is purely mythical.

This thread is dedicated to the Black Male Porn Star who seems never to get any recognition. Is it marketing? Lack of self drive? Or, is it something else? So, cheers to the Black Male Porn Star! Share some pics, some info, or whatever you like about them! I'll start with the first few;
Come on, I know one of you out there does.
How common is it for a man to have sensitive nipples? Mine are very sensitive, but I haven't met too many other gay men with that same level of sensitivity... As a result, I always feel a little weird asking guys to lick or suck on my nipples.

Has there ever been any gay gossip about him?
Might as well start one before our resident Bigfoot/curse believing troll starts one.
Because the original was so popular. Original thread at link.
The old thread was closed... and there's just not enough eye candy in this world, so this thread is here to fix that! No nudes, just totally gorgeous men:
Has there ever been a believable explanation for why he was in the White House so frequently? It's really weird.

Did anyone watch it? What did you think of the episode? What did you think of Peter Capaldi as the new doctor?
Do you think they will have children? Not necessarily children that she would carry herself, I’m thinking she might be too old, but I could them going the surrogate route. They would have some beautiful kids.

Her family has long occupied a prominent place among the Druze: Her father is a retired professor at the American University of Beirut, while her mother, Baria, is a well-known former beauty-queen turned journalist with the pan-Arab newspaper Al-Hayat. Plus, they hail from Baakline, birthplace of Emir Fakhreddine, a 16th century Druze prince. Those credentials bear great weight in the Druze sect, an ancient offshoot of Shiite Islam that boasts a mere 1.5 million followers.

Is anyone else watching STAR's Outlander? A woman time-travels from about 1946 to about 1743. Tonight is episode 2 (8/8/14). Some of the Scottish accents are a little tough to understand, but I think it has potential. I usually like time-traveling movies, so I am optimistic. It's funny the author picked ~1946 as the starting point, instead of the current date. Whatever.
What's our current composition? Are we really more straight than gay these days? Let's find out:

Sherlynn Fenn is playing her mom. The wigs are horrid, particularly the one on the 'Alicia Silverstone' actress.
R60, (from the Clooney getting married thread) I'm on FB under my name. I've just arranged for professional pics; what's there now is another amateur shot. I'm also on Gmail. Again, it's under my name (first&middle.) I'm calling your bluff. I'm in discussion for a few new "faux" reality series, and just left one because of the pay. I've also responded to another local comedy performance opportunity. I am NOT looking to be a star, as I'm a comedy/character actress. Right, the ditzy blond that everyone else teases. At least I'm told that I have "excellent, excellent sense of timing." We know casting isn't based on talent or even looks. Since I'm not bi or a super slut, I never expected to have a major career. Too bad I'm not related to Hal Kanter, as everyone asks. Whoever he was. I hinted at what Mr. Clooney promised to help me reveal, on last night's free question to a psychic thread. It would have been polite if he had told me to look elsewhere for representation, after I was told not to sign with a different manager. Obviously I must have totally misjudged his character and level of honesty. I've now moved on. There are those on DL that will always insult evryone else. I accept that fact.
I wasn't aware of this woman's story when it first happened, but I'm reading her Guardian interview and I wish there were more people talking about the problem of poverty in our country. "In America we have this myth that if you deserve it, you will have it. We’re afraid to look at our downtrodden because it undercuts that myth. There is a fear of the poor that is uniquely American. It’s especially hard to look at someone who could be one of their kids – someone like me who’s white and intelligent – and see them as poor. When the crash happened, there was a panic among the rich because suddenly wealth wasn’t only to do with how hard you’d worked. It could be taken away! They got really fearful. So much of Americans’ self-image is based on what we own and how we present ourselves." "Why do you think, as you say in your book, so many poor people vote against their own best interests? You’re assuming people feel any sort of connection to the system. I have a very close friend who votes Republican like clockwork. He understands the party doesn’t do much that is likely to help him as someone who might need welfare. So, as a social conservative, he’s going to vote according to which party supports his views on abortion, because that’s a thing that matters to him and he feels he can get movement on it, there will be a direct effect. Whereas if he votes on an economic issue, it’s just a different bunch of rich people doing a bunch of rich people things. It’s a question of marginalisation and trust. We [the poor] don’t trust anybody."
Frustrated fans of Lauryn Hill took to Twitter last night to criticise the singer after she arrived an hour and a half late for a show at the O2 Brixton Academy. The gig was the first of five UK performances in half a decade from the former member of The Fugees but unfortunately it was mired in controversy. From the 90-minute wait for the singer to the supporting acts to technical issues, there were plenty of disappointed fans in the nearly 5,000-seat auditorium. The warm-up act DJ Tieks left the crowd cold after he asked if any of them were from the West Coast of America despite the show being in London. The fan ire was such that “Lauryn Hill” started trending on Twitter, with one user called Yuichi commenting; “Lauryn Hill is the most disappointing concert I have ever been to. It’s heartbreaking.” When Hill did emerge, her set caused further criticism when she performed remixed version of her hits and the sound quality and was booed by the audience. She has only released one album in 1998, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and an unplugged album, which may be why the revamped arrangements of her hits did not go down well with the audience.
You are neither clean, nor sober. You are a drug addict. Time to start sending smokers to rehab to deal with the issues that make them addicts.
The lead singer is surely one of us.
They come in with flattering comments and are oh so helpful and on your side, but their secret agenda is to take the life you've worked so hard to have?
And that's final!

I nearly pissed myself laughing last evening as I idly watched a music channel while waiting for friends to call. It was John Legend on his favourite legends, I missed most of the countdown, I think I came in about number 8 when it was Alicia Keys - then he talked about and played a video from Adele, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Kanye & J Zee, and Beyonce was number two with that "put a ring on it" video, so I wondered who his number one would be? It was himself, as he played a video directed by his pal Kanye. I know the ego of music people knows no bounds, but to present oneself as one's number one choice, with a straight face, takes some beating. Most of Legend's stuff has passed me by, but I see both Smokey and Barbra included him in their latest Duets collaborations. That should boost his ego a bit more ...
SO many people love that brand of coffee. I tried it and found it actually weird tasting. I'm a Tim Hortons regular and I can't understand this attraction to the brand. I am told by friends that people pay for the atmosphere there.
The fashionable darlings of the figure skating world are back on NBC, possibly bumping longtime commentators Tom Hammond, Scott Hamilton, and Sandra Bezic from the anchor's desk. I cant stand Weir. What a douchebag.
He is now 45 with very little money and very few job opportunities. He's aging, has no wife nor any children. He's on the z-list with no real following. And as for Queer As Folk, he basically whored himself out for a job if he is in fact straight. Where do you think he will be years from now?
I was surprised. Someone needs to tell Janbot.
"Director Neil Patrick Harris has taken the conventional cabaret structure and turned it upside down, creating a show unlike anything that has been seen before," according to press notes.

They are reinventing the wheel!!!!
NBC's “Celebrity Apprentice” all-star tells TheWrap that the controversy surrounding the “Grey's” and “Scandal” creator is “appalling” Former White House staffer, businesswoman, church pastor and bestselling author Omarosa Manigault (universally known by just her first name) forged a reputation of being one of the biggest villains of reality TV on NBC's “Celebrity Apprentice.” She knows a thing or two about being called an “angry black woman.” And in the case of the New York Times writer applying the “angry black woman” description to ABC's “Grey's Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder” executive producer Shonda Rhimes, Omarosa told TheWrap that the reference is a “libelous,” defamatory “slur.” “I am deeply disappointed in the author,” Omarosa said. “I believe what she did is libelous and is the highest form of defamation. It undermines the incredible accomplishments Shonda has made. Calling her an ‘angry black woman’ is nothing short of defamation.” On Friday, the controversy blew up when Shonda Rhimes took to Twitter to address being described as “an angry black woman” in a story about her newest contribution to television, this fall's “How to Get Away With Murder.” She did so by first correcting the author, Alessandra Stanley, over the fact that Rhimes isn't the creator of the new show. In fact, “Murder” was created by Pete Nowalk, a white male. She then pointed out that she isn't called “an angry black woman” when Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), “Grey's Anatomy's” white titular character, goes on a rant. Instead, the author minimized Rhimes’ extensive stable of characters to “Murder's” Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) on “Scandal” and Dr. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) on “Grey's Anatomy” — all black females. “It really is a deliberate attempt to trivialize the accomplishments of Shonda,” Omarosa explained, “to put her in a box where she could manage the success of this woman. Shonda is phenomenal. She tried to manage, dissect and analyze her, and totally got it wrong. Once you assign that label to someone, it is very difficult to reverse that. The damage has been done.” She added, “Now when you google Shonda, instead of seeing how many [Emmy nominations she has earned] or how many awards she's been nominated for, you will see this slur.” After Rhimes and her supporters weighed in on the article on Friday, the unapologetic author released a statement that argued the exec producer and others didn't get her point and then belittled their use of Twitter. “The whole point of the piece — once you read past the first 140 characters — is to praise Shonda Rhimes for pushing back so successfully on a tiresome but insidious stereotype,” said Stanley in a statement to TheWrap. “When you are on the receiving end, it is an attack, the most important thing is how you react and respond,” Omarosa said. “I think Shonda was shocked by this attack on her integrity and reputation. It was deliberate and misleading, then the author tried to attempt to support it.” She also said, “The New York Times tends to be provocative. What surprises me is that people don't understand that by saying she should write a book on [being an angry black woman] is saying her whole life she has been angry. It is appalling.” To be clear, Omarosa doesn't think the descriptor is purely about race as it is another way to belittle a woman in charge. “They don't need to be racial attacks they can be gender attacks,” she said. Omarosa points out that the NYT author has placed Rhimes in a difficult position. How does one answer to being characterized as “an angry black woman” who personifies that in her characters without then living up to the description? “You always have to take the high road because she can't prove them right,” the reality star said. “The author has robbed her the right of getting upset about it. She can't get pissed. It robs you the ability to have a natural reaction to things.” “I think Shonda should allow what is happening now, which is the incredible amount of support that she's gotten, to show that this author got it wrong,” she advised.
As requested here is a new gym sex thread...
The old thread "does not exist" which I find extremely disturbing as it had a lot of good information in it. Has the "Clean Cut Gang" infiltrated Datalounge?
In order to end smoking for good the public needs to embrace e-cigs and vaping. Just to give a quick breakdown of e-cigs: They were invented by an American in 1964 but were never manufactured over claims that cigarettes were so inexpensive that it would not be able to compete in sales. Fast forward to early 2000s and a Chinese man reinvented them an they were manufactured. They took off in sales. By 2007 they began to infiltrate Europe. By 2009 they were in the U.S. Original models looked like real cigarettes. Newer models do not resemble cigarettes and have a longer battery life and produce a more satisfying vaping experience. The problem with cigarettes is the actually combustion part of the habit. It's the combustion that produces the carcinogens that can lead to cancer and the tar that damages lungs and hardens arteries. E-cigs remove the combustion aspect and thus does not product the carcinogens and tar that cigarettes do. The liquid that is used in e-cigs is called e-liquid or e-juice. It is liquid Nicotine diluted in a base of propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerin. Food grade flavoring are then added to product whatever of thousands of flavor one wishes. The liquid is not burned. It is heated by a metal coil inside the device and is vaporized. The vapor that one sees when a person using an e-cig inhale and exhale is actually 99% water. Water molecules are attracted to the vaporized glycerin and form for a very short-lived cloud or fog. Unlike with cigarettes smoke, the exhale completely vanishes within seconds of being exhaled. Also, unlike smoke which is warm, the exhaled vapor is cool. One can demonstrate by having a vaper blow the exhale on their arm/hand. The benefits of vaping include: -not stinking -no longer having to go outside to smoke in the heat and cold -no longer having yellow teeth and fingers -no more coughing and hacking -no bad breath -cheaper than smoking cigarettes -healthier than smoking cigarettes If it sounds that e-cigs are a miracle then why aren't almost all smokers switching to them? Well, to be honest it's because they are stupid. Some have tried a rinky-dink model when they first came out and were not satisfied with them and just dismissed all e-cigs because of that one bad experience. Some are still in denial about their own mortality. Some are so ignorant they believe that e-cigs are more dangerous than smoking cigarettes. (This is the modern version of the group of smokers who claimed that filters is what really cased cancer, not tobacco.) So how can we reach these people? Some of the things we can do is to normalize it in society. There's no reason for treating e-cigs as if they were just as disgusting and dangerous as cigarettes. There's no reason for special taxation of e-cigs or the banning of their use in public places as there is no evidence they are harmful. What there actually is is rumor, hearsay and fear-mongering by idiots who routinely bring up, "Won't Someone Think Of The Children!" Anybody who argues this position needs to be slapped in the mouth. E-cigs are for people who are already addicted to smoking. If any child should take up vaping then this is simply a child who would have taken up smoking if vaping wasn't available. Curtailing e-cigs are actually causing the smoking rates to increase among teens because cigarettes are still easier to get for them, compared to e-cigs. You may have heard that the FDA recently opened public comments on proposed legislation that it will possibly enact in two years. If the FDA does indeed enact this legislation the the entire e-cig market will be handed over to the Big Tobacco companies. All the mom & pop shops will not be able to afford staying in business. Big Tobacco only wants the rinky dinky models that look like cigarettes. They don't want people to be satisfied using them so that they will go back to cigarettes. So the FDA might be playing into the hands of Big Tobacco. And they media used scare tactics to force the FDA to act. So this entire war against e-cigs is so very contrived.
Let's face it: Hollywood is just one big prostitution racket. There I said it! The merchandise aka 'actresses' are traded here and there between producers, studio heads, directors, actors, investors, heck even the paparazzi. That's why the majority 40+ year old actresses' careers are over since no one wants to trade that. Yeah some men are traded but no one pays attention to that, only gays and bi men...so a real actress with real talent who doesn't let herself be traded in such a way is quite rare evidently.
Did you read it? I did. I read it in third grade. What's so funny is that my best friend didn't read it until she was almost 30! LOL Did the book really get to you because of the subject matter being based on a true story? I've yet to see the movie though.
Though precise modelling was never pursued, the investigators later estimated that this was the last moment, as the airplane dropped through 13,000 feet, when a recovery would theoretically have been possible. The maneuver would have required a perfect pilot to lower the nose at least 30 degrees below the horizon and dive into the descent, accepting a huge altitude loss in order to accelerate to a flying angle of attack, and then rounding out of the dive just above the waves, pulling up with sufficient vigor to keep from exceeding the airplane’s speed limit, yet not so violently as to cause a structural failure. There are perhaps a handful of pilots in the world who might have succeeded, but this Air France crew was not among them. There is an old truth in aviation that the reasons you get into trouble become the reasons you don’t get out of it.

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.
The cable channel released the following statement: "We are deeply saddened by the loss of Joan Rivers and, for the last two weeks, have turned our attention to honoring her memory on all of our platforms. We have also thought long and hard about what Joan would have wanted as it pertains to the future of Fashion Police. We decided, with Melissa Rivers' blessing, that Joan would have wanted the franchise to continue. Fashion Police will return in 2015 commencing with Golden Globes coverage on Monday, January 12. No further details will be announced at this time."
I've been wondering whether this movie will be a big flop, or a mega hit. Well, this trailer makes me think the latter. If it is half a funny, half as exciting and half as stylish as this trailer it will be a HUGE HIT. Marvel is doing it right.

Has anyone watched this? What do you thing, I kinda like it? Season 3 has aired on SyFy channel and 1-2 are on Netflix. Season 4 has been renewed. The series centers on the conflict between a group of rebels from the year 2077 who time-travel to Vancouver, BC, in 2012, and a police officer who accidentally accompanies them. In spite of being many years early, the rebel group decides to continue its violent campaign to stop corporations of the future from replacing governments, while the police officer endeavours to stop them without revealing to anyone that she and the rebels are from the future.

It was a role Henry was cast for and attached to for a while, the lead in Legendary's The Great Wall. But after production delays and a change in directors, Deadline is now reporting Matt Damon is up for what at one point was Henry's part: This is the China-set epic that Legendary Pictures principal Thomas Tull has been trying to mount for the past several years. Scripted by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro, the film was going to shoot last year and give Legendary a foothold into the China market, at the time with Ed Zwick helming. While Zwick went as far as casting Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker, it just didn’t get over the wall that time (..) The Great Wall reveals the mystery behind why the Great Wall was built, and the secrets that are kept under its stone structure. The film will be produced by Thomas Tull, Chuck Roven, Jon Jashni and Alex Gartner. We would have LOVED to have seen Zwick's version, that had Henry traveling through 15th century China as a British soldier. But had Henry filmed that project last year, he likely wouldn't have been available to do The Man from U.N.C.L.E. - and we can't even imagine that thought.. *gasp* So go ahead Matt Damon aka Batman's BFF, take The Great Wall. We'll keep Solo, because we know he'll shine in that U.N.C.L.E. role come August 14, 2015. And then he'll kick your buddy's butt a few months later.

Most websites, even at the truTV''s CrimeLibrary, seem convinced Green Beret physician Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald was indeed telling the truth and that he has been unjustly imprisoned for killing his family (as dramatized in the book and miniseries "Fatal Vision").\ \ But how can they explain that in his account of the murders, a hippie woman in a big floppy hat held a single lit candle and intoned, "Kill the pigs! Acid is groovy!" while the killers went at it? He has never varied from that impossibly unbelievable story.

OMG, this film was absolutely beautiful! I would really love for it to win. To have a country choose a gay film to represent the best their country has to offer in cinema is a big deal, and this film delivers! The film is about a blind boy who falls in love with one that is sighted. They're in their early teens. When you say "blind" it usually turns people off right away. This isn't one of those films. It's not about the poor blind boy trying to make it in society. It's just adorable. It also gives subtle clues as to how blind people are able to function. The main character has been blind since birth. If you can track this movie down, please see it. I wish Netflix had it. Perhaps after this news they'll try to get it.

Is anyone else following this case? I don't think their person of interest did it. Nursing assistant who's been communicative and open talking to police so far. I believe a different person may have picked her up in a car. Sad, this could have happened to anyone. I hope she's found alive but it's not looking good. There have also been four other female students that have gone missing over the years.
Anyone remember this? Happened in 1974. Link to wiki article.
I was just talking with a female friend who said she feels unsafe when men catcall her. But unless it happens at night or when she's vulnerable (i.e. drunk or alone), wouldn't it be flattering? I wonder if a lot of women pretend to be annoyed when they really love it.
Another young adult dystopian allegory for growing up, this time staring the amazing Dylan O'Brien from the very gay-positive Teen Wolf series. Looks likely to be number one at the box office this weekend... anyone else going to go see it? The reviews are mostly decent.
I've had a life-long nightmare with the post office. For the umpteenth time they put "vacant" on my mailbox. I've lived here for 2 1/2 years. It's a private bank of individual boxes inside a gated community. There have been literally weeks when I could not get paychecks, bills, magazines, anything. The last few places I've lived were even worse. Please don't tell me to call the "800" customer service number. Literally hundreds of calls later, I get a call from a heavily accented person who says says I should walk the 7 miles round trip to the post office, where after waiting in line for an hour, he will show me where my place is listed as vacant. He refuses to tell me how to correct the problem. The post office used to accuse my neighbors of stealing my ads and bills. This has never, ever been the case. Then the post office accused me of living in a poor neighborhood; also a total lie. You would not believe the horrible insults I've gotten over the years from Sen Reids and Shelley Berkeley's staff. I've been repeatedly blamed for moving too often. This is a lie, although it is my legal right to move when I choose. At least the NV Republican elected officials are sympathetic but powerless to do anything at all. Any advice? I wish the post office would go private. Maybe then I could get my paychecks from out of state without a nightmare.
I noticed a few recently. 1. Just before they go to Hollywood, Lucy is on the phone with her friend Marian Van Vlack discussing the trip. Couple of episodes later, when Mrs McGillicuddy arrives, Lucy asks her mother how Marian Van Vlack is doing, as if she hadn't had contact with her in ages. 2. In that same episode where Mrs McG arrives, she announces she wants to go Hollywood so she can take her book to Dore Schary, with the hope that he'll turn it into a screenplay. A few eps later, when they're all in Hollywood, Ricky makes a comment about Dore Shary, and Mrs McG shrieks over and over, "Who's Dore Schary? Who's Dore Schary?" 3. This one's a blooper: in an episode when they're getting ready to go to Europe, Fred brings his old vaudeville trunk to the Ricardos. The phone rings, and Ricky picks it up. I don't know if the sound people had the phone ring prematurely, but just after he picks up the phone, with phone to the ear, he turns to Fred and asks what that trunk is. Lucy has to quickly remind him that he's on the phone when she scoldingly says, "the phone, dear." Any others you can think of?
I didn't realize she was an exact contemporary of Sophia Loren. Since her first public appearance in 1950, BB, the screen icon who turned her back on film fame, has courted scandal The woman Paris-Match deemed "immoral, from head to toe" in 1958, is turning 80 in a few days. "The most beautiful woman in the world" may have chosen to leave the limelight in 1973, at the peak of her fame and beauty, to dedicate her life to animals, yet Brigitte Bardot has never ceased to be a controversial figure. Some anecdotes speak volumes. On the evening of 7 December 1967, Paris held its breath. Charles de Gaulle and Brigitte Bardot were about to meet for the first time. Le général had invited the film star to the Elysée Palace. And in shocking breach of Elysée protocol, which at the time banned trousers for women as evening wear, Bardot arrived dressed as a Napoleonic hussar. With gold braiding and more than a dozen rows of shiny buttons covering her chest, she had her long blond mane loose over her shoulders, and her eyes neatly circled with black kohl eyeliner. The chamberlain at the Elysée must have felt a cold sweat down his spine when he saw her walking up the steps in such attire. The star and the general met on the steps. She was the first to talk: "Bonjour, mon général," she said, a little shy. De Gaulle, feigning to inspect the frogs on her dolman, replied: "Indeed! Madame." Panache is the word, and they both showed plenty during their lives, albeit in very different fashion and circumstances. Unlike other screen goddesses of the time such as Gina Lollobrigida and Sophia Loren (who had her 80th birthday on Saturday), Brigitte Bardot was not a working-class lass. She came from a very bourgeois, pious Catholic family, living in a seven-bedroom apartment in the plush 16th arrondissement of Paris, not far from the Eiffel Tower. Having studied ballet for three years from the age of 13 at the Paris Conservatory (her fellow dance mate, Leslie Caron, would later be picked up by Gene Kelly to star alongside him in the Technicolor masterpiece An American in Paris), she developed the elegant poise and gait which would soon fascinate the world. On 8 March 1950, at 15, Brigitte Bardot appeared on the cover of Elle magazine, and the Earth's axis shifted. Here was the epitome of grace and style. She was demure, she was a Catholic, she was all curves, and yet her body was toned and strong; an athlete's build sculpted by intense sessions of entrechats. She wore uncorseted cotton dresses with no elaborate lining and bright-coloured pattern bikinis. With Françoise Sagan, who penned the bestseller Bonjour Tristesse at 17, she shared an impudent smile, an intelligent gaze and barefoot summers in St Tropez. They were France's bright prodigies. After Bardot's early "retirement" from cinema, Sagan wrote a book about her in 1975, both a celebration and a eulogy: "Bardot didn't apologise for her absolute triumph whereas so many others apologised for their half-victories." The innocent jeune fille grew, in just a few years, into a sex symbol. In 1957, age 23, she made cinematic history in And God Created Woman, her husband Roger Vadim's seminal film, where her exploding sensuality is as graceful as ever, and never lewd. In a famous scene, she dances as if in a trance, barefoot, her skin glowing with sweat, her hair wild and loose. Her thighs, that of a dancer, are tanned, strong and muscular. She is so far from the neat and constructed image of Hollywood stars of the time that, when the film was released in America, it provoked outrage on a continental scale. When they saw those pearls of sweat, American men went wild. Movie managers daring to show such a film were prosecuted, the film was banned in some states and newspaper articles denounced the depravity of it all. As a result, the film proved an even greater box-office success and the furore travelled back to Europe.
Jesus Christ, what is it with this guy? Do his films suck THAT much?
Police chief travels to tourist island as residents say prayers for murdered Britons Thai police struggling to solve the murders of two British tourists bludgeoned to death on a beach want the FBI's help to analyse semen found on one of the bodies, and say they need more time to catch the killers. There has been little progress working out who killed Hannah Witheridge, 23, and David Miller, 24, since their bodies were found on the holiday island of Koh Tao a week ago. Police have been criticised for failing to seal off the crime scene fast enough and then focusing on two British brothers travelling with Miller and a group of migrant workers, who were all later cleared by forensic tests. Deputy national police chief General Somyot Pumpunmuang is now flying down to personally inspect the crime scene and speak to investigators. "We will ask the FBI to help identify the DNA in the semen we found – whether it belonged to an Asian or European," the Nation newspaper quoted him as saying. "This is a big case and the premier has been very concerned about the matter." Residents of normally quiet Koh Tao have donated to a reward fund for tip-offs that might help solve the murders. "We offer 50,000 baht [£950] for anyone who can provide clues which lead to the arrest of a suspect," local mayor Chaiyan Turasakul told Agence France-Presse, adding that residents had also said prayers for the victims. The killings are the latest blow to a tourist industry already dented by years of political turmoil, which in May culminated in an army coup, tarnishing the image of a country that likes to be known as the "Land of Smiles". The prime minister, General Prayuth Chan-ocha, has promised extra security at tourist attractions, and says he has personally ordered police to find the killer. Earlier he suggested foreign visitors to Thai beaches could be unsafe in bikinis, but later apologised for "speaking too harshly". Local police are under huge pressure to find the killers. "I am well aware that the murders have affected Thailand's reputation and travellers' confidence. I'm asking for more time as I want to work on a step-by-step basis," regional police commander Lieutenant General Panya Mamen told the Phuket Gazette. "We still believe we will bring the attackers to justice. Police have collected a lot of evidence and interviewed many people, and this should help us find the culprits." Mamen said he plans to expand the search to nearby islands, and believes the murders were carried out by a group of at least three attackers. Semen taken from Witheridge's body has already been found to contain the DNA of two men, and neither sample matches Miller's. A cigarette butt close to the crime scene carried traces of Witheridge's DNA, Somyot said, suggesting that she had met and had a conversation with her attackers before she was attacked with a hoe, which was found nearby. Miller died from blows to the head, and possibly drowning. Police are now trying to track down a handful of people captured on security camera near the scene of the crime. They include a western woman seen running near the crime scene and a man of Asian appearance seen coming from the direction of the murder site, tourism police commander Major-General Atichai Ti-amart told the Phuket Gazette. Sky TV also released footage of Miller walking down a street behind the beach at around 1.30am, and then heading back in the opposite direction around half an hour later with a man and a woman who have not been identified. The woman is not believed to be Witheridge.

Apparently a gay chorus boy got a job at the palace ...
For many years I worked in palliative care. My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last three to twelve weeks of their lives. People grow a lot when they are faced with their own mortality. I learnt never to underestimate someone’s capacity for growth. Some changes were phenomenal. Each experienced a variety of emotions, as expected, denial, fear, anger, remorse, more denial and eventually acceptance. Every single patient found their peace before they departed though, every one of them. When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. Here are the most common five: 1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. It is very important to try and honour at least some of your dreams along the way. From the moment that you lose your health, it is too late. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it. 2. I wish I didn’t work so hard. This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship. Women also spoke of this regret. But as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence. By simplifying your lifestyle and making conscious choices along the way, it is possible to not need the income that you think you do. And by creating more space in your life, you become happier and more open to new opportunities, ones more suited to your new lifestyle. 3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings. Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result. We cannot control the reactions of others. However, although people may initially react when you change the way you are by speaking honestly, in the end it raises the relationship to a whole new and healthier level. Either that or it releases the unhealthy relationship from your life. Either way, you win. 4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends. Often they would not truly realise the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying. It is common for anyone in a busy lifestyle to let friendships slip. But when you are faced with your approaching death, the physical details of life fall away. People do want to get their financial affairs in order if possible. But it is not money or status that holds the true importance for them. They want to get things in order more for the benefit of those they love. Usually though, they are too ill and weary to ever manage this task. It is all comes down to love and relationships in the end. That is all that remains in the final weeks, love and relationships. 5. I wish that I had let myself be happier. This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they...
LOTS of bare-chested Ben Foster--in many scenes he was in black boxer-briefs and nothing esle, and in one scene he began to simulate cunnilingus with his (weak) Stella. He was perfectly fine if not memorable in the role. He has developed the perfect body for the part--very thickly muscular and masculine, with a hugely hairy chest and legs. Anderson's voice was like a bleated parody of Vivien Leigh's. She played Blanche unsympathetically--as irritating and as much less charming than Leigh or Ann-Margret or most other Blanches. The revolving set was interesting. I didn't mind the IKEA furniture or the present-day costumes, though Stella had the ugliest outfit I've seen in years--a tight maternity microdress. The music was horrendous.
Bellagio in Vegas is supposedly the top-rated hotel/casino for customer service. What would you do if the following happened to you? Attending an event at Bellagio hotel/casino, I needed to use the Women's Restroom. In the middle of using the toilet, I saw a huge flood of DARK BROWN FECES flooding my stall from the one next to it. My brand new Satin high heels and large cloth bag were immediately covered in the filthy poop. I finished as quickly as possible and went to the bathroom sink. The smell was horrific. I told the housekeeper what had happened. She yelled at me in front of the other patrons that I should have inspected the stall before using it. She didn't care that the flood of shit happened after I was using the toilet. She ignored my request for help in cleaning my shoes and cloth bag. I had to stand in my stocking feet on the restroom floor, and clean someone else's feces off of my things. I had no choice but to wear the shoes out of the restroom, and carry the cloth bag. I then called for a shift manager. After a long wait, he finally showed up. His response? He didn't see the incident so there was nothing that he could do to help me. I would be happy to take a lie detector test to prove that what I'm saying is 100% true and accurate.
..that just doesn't do it for me. Handsome face, nice voice, beautiful manly body. But no. No sex appeal, to me.

[italic]The Cosby Show[/italic] celebrates its 30th birthday on Saturday. It was a monster hit inspired by the comedy and life experiences of its star, Bill Cosby, as shown in the new biography [italic]Cosby: His Life and Times[/italic]. In the book, author Mark Whitaker makes a strong argument that Cosby's comedic style and approach to race issues turned [italic]The Cosby Show[/italic] into television's most quietly subversive program. [italic]The Cosby Show[/italic] rarely came off like a revolutionary situation comedy — especially because the situations, often centered on loving-yet-sardonic parents Cliff and Clair Huxtable, seemed so ordinary. "I was a beautiful woman once, before the children came," Phylicia Rashad's Clair says in one scene to Bill Cosby's Cliff. "Do you think when they grow up I'll be beautiful again?" Cosby delivered the punch line, speaking for many an exasperated parent: "I just hope they get out of the house before we die." . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

It's a beautiful city (in parts) but I'm sick of the obscenely high rents, the tech bros who all look the same, the pretentious hipsters, and the lack of decent public transportation. There's also not arts culture here. No underground scenes or movements or anything. Is Oakland better? Any other major cities you'd recommend?
Is it hip hop? Country music and country stars? Obsession with the Kardashians? Self-absorption? Thinking that American culture rules the world? Football? Professional wrestling? Lack of interest in soccer? circumcision? Race? Global policing? Entitlement? Not being interested in or attempting to understand other cultures? Limited understanding of world history? What do Americans do that leave the rest of the world scratching their heads?

Her new movie This Is Where I Leave You features Jane as mom to three sons and one daughter. In the pic below she is smack dab in the middle. As there are 3 men and 2 women the positioning doesn’t make sense. Should both women bookend the three men? Or have it man-woman-man-woman-man Either combination has a man in the middle, which is how it should be. Yet Jane Fonda is smack dab in the middle. Why?
This is sort of different. Some NYSD-cliche things about it, but not totally. I don't know what to think. I love the atrium/sun room, though not sure I like how he decorated it. LOVE his desk. I sort of love his bed, just cuz it's so eclectic, but it could have been the core of a great bedroom, but it's not, IMO. I sort of dig the light, shades-of-beige living room. But, I don't like the artwork in that room (at least for that room) and don't like the curtains. Kitchen must be tiny because they barely show it. I like his lighted display case, but vases, tchotchkes and cologne? Get rid of the cologne. In fact the whole case could be staged better. Yeah, I'm sure it's expensive stuff, but big deal. There's a lot going on here. Maybe I do like the atrium furnishings.

I hear a lot of people ask this. They specifically ask why it's important to know ones sexual orientation throughout history. I would shoot back with: why do Jews want to learn about other Jews throughout history, or blacks wanting to research their history as well. Then it's pointed out that sexual orientation is not race. We're not a group all stemming from the same ancestor. We're not all automatically connected genetically. Once we reach, say 90% acceptance in the Western world, will we cease being a community? It seems that oppression has stuck us together. When oppression ceases to be a big issue, or the biggest issue, will we care about gay history, linking ourselves to it?

Obviously excluding horror classics such as "Exorcist," "Shining," etc. Candyman (1992) is a great example. Excellent, overlooked little horror gem that also happens to star two criminally underrated actors as the leads (Virginia Madsen, Tony Todd). Tony Todd perhaps being the most underrated black actor or all time (but that's another thread).
He is friends with Jeff because Jeff is Harry's agent, he is supposed to introduce him to a lot of important people in LA. Harry wants to be known as a songwriter, he wants to become 'friends' with people who can help him become famous as an individual when the time is there. You can keep calling Jeff his boyfriend, but that doesn't make it the truth. The only truth is that Harry is a smart ass who knows exactly how to charm the right people into doing a lot for him. Even if those people have their own agenda as well. Harry has talked his way right into the Azoff family. What more does he need? Well, maybe a secret girl- or boyfriend who loves him for who he is, and not for how famous he is. Someone who doesn't care about him being in LA all the time. So this person must have the possibility to see him, even though he is always staying at different places around the world. Someone whom he wants to stay faithful to, even though he knows that he could sleep with a lot of beautiful people. But why would a guy his age want to do that? Does that mean that his love interest is famous as well, and that he/she can pull the same card? Open your eyes, there is only one person who would fit in his life right now. He has never made a secret of his feelings.

Fox News has got to be salivating over yet another Benghazi hearing that began Wednesday, having aired almost 1,100 segments on Benghazi so far. The newly created “Select Committee on Benghazi,” led by radical Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy, will no doubt make another attempt at creating a scandal where one simply doesn’t exist. There have been 8 Congressional Committees, 13 public hearings, 50 senior staff briefings, 3 independent/bipartisan reports, countless interviews, and 25,000 pages of documents that have found no wrongdoing by the Obama administration on this matter, but Republicans are dead set on wasting more of our tax dollars and time; not to mention Fox News jonesing for another fix for its Benghazi habit. The Benghazi panel of twelve is made up of seven Republicans and five Democrats, and is meant to focus on what the Obama administration has done to improve U.S. embassies’ security since the Sept. 11, 2012, attack. This would be a valid issue, but it was the Republicans that cut funding to the State Department for embassy security. ABC reports that when House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, called for the select committee’s establishment in May, he accused the Obama administration of, “obstructing the truth about Benghazi.” The new body, Boehner vowed, will work “quickly” to get answers. Because multi-millions of dollars spent, numerous hearings and reports, all drawing the same conclusion that there are no fingers to be pointed, isn’t enough to bring this political farce to an end. As the hearing got under way in the Capitol auditorium, in front of many empty seats, Gowdy dismissed the call for lawmakers to quit beating a dead horse, and said he was looking into new witnesses, new documents, and asking new questions. What could be new to find that couldn’t be found in the previous hearings or testimonies? “Given the gravity of the issues at hand, I am willing to risk answering the same question twice rather than risk not answering it once,” he said. Twice? How about dozens of times? At a great expense to taxpayers. While discussions on how better to protect American embassies and facilities are vitally important and should occur, I find it hard to believe that it couldn’t be done without launching another attack on this administration and wasting resources and time that could be better spent solving the problem at hand. As Linda Sanchez, one of the Select Committee members, wrote in an op-ed for Blue Nation Review: “If we want to honor the brave Americans who perished that night, we need to leave politics aside and focus on implementing the recommendations that were outlined in the Accountability Review Board’s report.”

Elijah Wood raised eyebrows earlier this week after he waded into the particularly volatile political debate over Scottish independence by telling the countrymen to “f**king go for it”. But the American Lord of the Rings actor has since claimed he was confused by the question he was asked as he promoted his new movie, Set Fire to the Stars, at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, and said he thought he was being probed on the slightly less controversial subject of independent Scottish cinema rather than the referendum this September. Speaking to The Scotsman, he said: “You know, in truth, I thought they were talking about independent cinema. I mean, it’s a film festival.” His original comment in full was the following: “The independence of Scotland? F**king go for it, man!” He joined a host of famous faces – including Eddie Izzard, David Bowie, and Rod Stewart, among others – whose declarations as supporters of either the ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ vote sparked a social media frenzy online.

....about the firing. The idea that these people are role models to begin with is ludicrous ...Why Americans look to sports figures to be the beacons of truth, justice and the American Way has always seemed ridiculous to me. The courts are there to handle people who do this... Why should it affect your job if it doesn't reflect in your performance? If you were charged with a crime would you lose your job? I know some companies have that policy but the great majority of jobs...especially union do not. I consider myself a feminist (I'm male) and abhor domestic violence to say the least... What do you think? Again...this is about the effect on employment not the immorality of abuse...
As the chaining of America continues a lot of interesting restaurants get lost in the mix. This article got me thinking (yes it's Huffpo, sorry those bitter betty's who disdain it). It is about restaurants past, including one in NY that I know was incredibly popular. Right now name one GREAT place that is reasonable in theatre district? Exactly you have to go to 9th at the very least. Restaurant Row sucks, but there used to be a lot of good eateries in that ares. What gone restaurants do you miss?
You never hear about them. Were they close?

It has to be said.
He says he was completely caught off-guard by the question and had no answer. Take a look at link below

Which is your fave? Did Linda-Bloodworth Thomason rip off Susan Harris's idea of four close female best friends? The DW characters even shared similar traits of the GG (airhead, outspoken, self-centered and caustic).
I watched season 1 when it aired.I'm starting season 2 now. I forget what the deal is with the sister-in-law. Why does Anna Gunn hate her and keep avoiding her calls?

Just watched Nashville and can't get over how incandescent she was. She seemingly had it all: natural acting talent, unforgettable voice, even wrote her own (exquisite) songs for the movie. And drop-dead gorgeous to boot. Yet she never became a star, in movies or music. What happened?
Twenty-nine years ago Sunday, The Golden Girls, a sitcom following four women in the "golden years" of their lives, premiered on NBC. In honor of its nearly three decades of reruns, I have ranked all its episodes below. (The "I" above is the Gawker writer)
You are with your straight buds at a mix gay/straight club with at least one male and female stripper/whore. 1. Would you be comfortable enough to suck the male stripper's cock in front of your straight male friends? 2. Would you be comfortable seeing your straight male friends get their cocks sucked by the female stripper/whore? 3. Where would you draw the line? Would you be comfortable enough to eat his cum and get your ass pounded mere inches away from your straight buds? 4. Would this fantasy make an excellent porno? Hot or not? Would you fap and/or dildo your ass to it?

Dolly Parton, perfect human announced today that she may be working on a new album soon. Something more upbeat. Dancey. Gay. During a press conference before the last stop on her Blue Smoke world tour, the tatted up Iron Butterfly herself said, "At some point I would like to do a dance record and I have several songs that are very positive towards the gay community," Parton said. "I have a song called 'Just A Wee Bit Gay'. It's a great little dance tune, it's funny and it's got a lot of comic in it. "I do write a lot of songs along those lines with people that are different and are just themselves." Just a Wee Bit Gay. We will always love you, Dolly.
Because we lost the original thread and it appears it was useful reference tool. If Blanche raised her family in Miami, why do all her children live in Atlanta?
...and summer brings out so many. Guys flashing their dicks out of the leg of the shorts, guys with hard ons rubbing off on my shoulder, men playing pocket pool. Even late at night some full on masturbation. Share your subway tales here.
Rumors have swirled that Janet Jackson and her husband's marriage is on the rocks. Reports indicated that the singer is not happy with being married to Wissam Al Mana and has already filed for divorce. A source reportedly said she has already confided in her close friends and her mother Katherine Jackson that she's preparing to leave him. Another tabloid reported that Jackson will challenge the prenup and will also demand a payout from his fortune. Jackson was previously married to James SeBarge and Rene Elizonda. She also had a long-term relationship with rapper/producer, Jermaine Dupri. She secretly married Al Mana in 2012, whom she began dating in 2010. Back in October, the couple were taking steps to expanding their family by exploring the process of adopting a child from a third-world country. "She now pretty much knows pregnancy is not in the cards, so she's been looking into adopting," a source said at the time. "She's been very moved by the events in Jordan and Syria now that she's been living overseas. Not sure how soon it will happen, but there's been movement on this." Page Six also noted that Jackson even reached out to Queen Rania of Jordan to help out with the process. "Janet has always been concerned about the welfare of the world's children, and it's important to her that she affords a baby the opportunities that have been afforded her," a source told the paper.
I'm thinking Miami Shores?
Anyone else remember Mizz Gordon?
Raise your hands yall
So, Neil Young has filed for divorce from his wife Pegi. They had been married for 36 years. She sang background for him and inspired some of his better-known love songs, such as "Unknown Legend." No reason was given for the divorce. Do any of you bitches know anything? Have there been rumors floating around about this? In all the comments I've seen, people express shock. Call me sentimental, but I'm always surprised and saddened when people who have been together for decades decide to call it quits. It happened to Al and Tipper Gore, to Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon, to Michael Moore and his wife, and now to Neil and Pegi Young. You'd think that if a marriage -- and especially a show biz marriage -- had weathered decades' worth of storms, it would be strong enough to withstand anything. But apparently not. Does anybody stay together any more?
Mr. and Ms. Moneybags
Michael Jackson’s funeral was delayed because Janet wanted her $40K burial deposit back, says new book
I'll refrain from asking anything about life in prison.
Janet Jackson teams up with producers Ian Cross and Tommy Parker overseas for her NEW album. LOL at the other thread being locked. Stay pressed, haters!
I like what she says @ 0:37 about people who always talk shit about her.

7/31/2014 from IDOLATOR.COM: [italic]The black cat‘s out of the bag: Over six years after her last studio album, Discipline, Janet Jackson is working on a follow-up to her 2008 record. (!!!) In an interview with studio speaker company Barefoot Sound, vocal producer and engineer Ian Cross confirmed what many of Miss Jackson’s devoted fans have been waiting to hear ever since the conclusion of her Number Ones, Up Close and Personal Tour in 2011: Janet’s back in the recording studio, and she’s been working for a while now. “Janet [Jackson] and I had a little bit more of a special relationship because we became friends naturally,” Cross told Barefoot of their ongoing working relationship. “You meet a lot of people and you become friends with a couple of them, but sometimes there is one person you become really good friends with…She asked me to work on an album with her called Discipline in 2007 and, again, just do the same thing, produce the vocals. That led to her hiring me full-time to work with her. That’s where I’m at now.” The producer, who also helped to engineer Janet’s past three studio albums (Damita Jo, 20 Y.O. and Discipline), also confirmed that the upcoming record has been a particularly global experience this time around: “The Janet Jackson’s of the world can’t just spend their time in one studio in one city anymore…we’ve been working in Qatar. We’ve been working in Paris, the Middle East, and now we feel like we can work anywhere.” And as for what to expect? “The new album is going to be great. It’s a process. There’s a lot in store, yet to come. I can’t go into too many details but I think Janet Jackson’s fans are going to be very excited about the new album, and I think people who don’t know her as fans are going to be excited about it, too.” So excited, indeed.[/italic] ....and to the haters, the naysayers and everyone else who swore she was retired and that there was no new album coming? You can sit now.
"...Even Jackson’s three-month first marriage to singer James DeBarge, when she was 18, has some lingering secrecy—although the reports there are harder to take seriously. Gossip rags chased stories for years in the 2000s alleging that Jackson had a secret child with DeBarge. Rumors ran rampant in 2005 that Jackson had given birth to a girl during their marriage. At one point, it was speculated that it was a son named Omer Bhatti and he would now be in his late 20s. While (coincidentally) promoting new music, DeBarge’s brother, Young DeBarge, claimed that Jackson had a grown daughter named Renee who lived with her older sister, Rebbie." TMZ To abandon a child for fame and money is the most scurrilous thing a parent can do. Janet Jackson will rue the day her daughter writes a book about her.
On her last flop album, she sings about daddy fucking her. For years she's been releasing songs such as the one linked. She's a sick puppy.
Janet is breathtaking in this video from 1995 in which she portrays Dorothy Dandridge. This was released around the same time she and Whitney Houston showed interest in playing the late actress on the big screen.
Happy birthday Janet- Miss Jackson if you're nasty…. (Janbot is having a fabulous day today. A bottle of wine and "Twentyfourplay" on loop.)
In an exclusive interview with TODAY''s Meredith Viera, Janet Jackson reveals that her struggles with her body image were once so severe, "I would literally bang my head up against the wall because I didn''t feel attractive. ... There was a lot of pain in my life. But I did. I felt very unattractive," Jackson said.%0D\ %0D
I heard she was relevant during my infancy.
A secret child? Who is the father and why is the kid a secret?
Janet Jackson's first single off the album Janet., released April 20th, 1993. "That's The Way Love Goes" remained at #1 for eight weeks in 1993, the longest run at #1 for any member of the Jackson family. The Grammy awarded song is the most successful single of Janet Jackson's career.
I've listed only what I consider her top hits. These are your only choices. I will post a video of myself performing the winning hit in full Janet regalia on YouTube. Voting ends soon.
She's almost 50 and hasn't produced an album since 2008. She's also no longer under a recording contract. She's married to a supposed billionaire.
They''re releasing one date at a time, places that only a has-been would go to, and those aren''t even selling. The tour starts in the beginning of February. Three dates have been announced so far. She can''t even perform shows in Europe or the US, because she knows no one will come to see her. She''s going to be performing in places that look like high school gymnasiums. Her people have said that this tour will totally be stripped down, and that there will be no pyrotechnics. "Just Janet." Good god!
She's currently in Turkey working with producers Ian Cross and Tommy Parker. Fuck yes.
Her Lawyer released a statement In response to the claim earlier this week that she had demanded MJ’s estate pay her mortgage on her las Vegas Condo. Janet’s Las Vegas home has never even had a mortgage, and she purchased the home outright 10 years ago for her mother Katherine Jackson’s use. Furthermore, Janet has “provided financial support unconditionally to her mother before and after Michael’s death and will continue to do so, Brown says that any implication that Jackson has demanded any payments from the estate, or needs payments from the estate, are “false and outrageous.” “She is a successful artist and very high net worth individual who has never had financial problems. She has no need for any such payments from the estate,” Brown states.
Janet Jackson has reportedly given up her music career to move to the Middle East with her millionaire husband Wissam Al Mana. "She's gone. She married a billionaire," an insider told Showbiz 411. "They've got houses in three countries. She's spending time in the Middle East. She's become a Muslim." The pair who started dating in 2010 were wed in secret last year, with Janet revealing the details to Entertainment Tonight in February. "Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony," Janet said in a statement to ET. "Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children's charities. "We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet." Wissam is Janet's third husband. She was married briefly to James DeBarge in the '80s and Réne Elizondo in the '90s. The successful 46-year-old recording artist has a discography of ten albums and has made various on screen appearances, such as Poetic Justice and Nutty Professor 2: The Klumps.
Did any of you know Cary Leeds? He had the biggest cock in New York, lived in a penthouse on the West side, then moved to Florida, Delray then Miami. Did porn. Into orgies, black men. Any of you knew him, any stories?
I'm looking at old videos of Janet, and it looks like she wasn't really busting out moves until the videos for Control. Was she trained in dancing from a young age or did she primarily learn from Paula? Janbot(s), don't attack me. I'm just looking for answers that are as factual as possible.
My local news (channel 4, Wash, DC) just reported that Janet Jackson is now receiving financial support from her mother. She claimed that her mother does at times stay at her house, so this money is some kind of rent. Janet is broke people. Nothing else makes sense (Posted this at end of other Jackson thread, but it seems to be pretty dead.)
This video separated her from the rest of the pack--including her brother Michael. Even today, it's just amazing to watch. Just her, alone, in a big warehouse ala Footloose and Flashdance, dancing her heart out. The hair, the Guess jeans, the balancing off of a chair, the backflip...iconic and awesome.
The bitch is gonna be 45 years old. She ain't having no damn kids! .... JANET Jackson is at war with her momma! Sources say the sexy, twice-divorced pop superstar has come to blows with Katherine Jackson because the matriarch has told her she must get married before she even thinks about starting a family. Janet is currently dating billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana, 34. %E2%80%9CAt her age, Janet realizes her biological clock is ticking fast,%E2%80%9D a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer. %E2%80%9CShe%E2%80%99s infatuated with Wissam and believes he%E2%80%99d be the perfect father. He%E2%80%99s a billionaire so their child would never have to worry about anything, and that security means a lot to Janet. %E2%80%9CBut Katherine is totally against having kids out of wed lock and has advised Janet not to make that mistake. She also told Janet, %E2%80%98Your baby needs a mother, not a nanny!%E2%80%99%E2%80%9D Janet recently spoke of her desire to start a family. %E2%80%9CI%E2%80%99d love to have a family,%E2%80%9D she said. %E2%80%9CBut really, it%E2%80%99s in God%E2%80%99s hands. So, if it%E2%80%99s meant to be, I%E2%80%99ll have one. I hope it does.%E2%80%9D
Janet Jackson will quit the US to live in the Middle East after her wedding this summer to Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana. Friends say the 46-year-old singer wants to start a fresh life away from the feuding Jackson family. “She’s sick of all the drama since her brother Michael’s death,” said one. Twice-divorced Janet said last week Wissam, 37, had made all the arrangements for a “spectacular” wedding in his home country. Pals say they also intend to adopt children. A source said: “She likes Qatar and describes it as a very open and progressive Middle East country. “It’s going to be more peaceful there away from the disputes with her sister La Toya and brothers.”
2 guys on Friday 2 guys on Saturday 1 guy on Sunday My hole is sore, but I feel good. And no, I'm not a whore. I just have a hole that men can't resist. Go ahead and hiss. I know you bitches want to.
Why is she leading the charge on questioning her brother's estate? Doesn't it say whoever contests the will gets cut out? What happened to all her money?
Guess she's preparing for marriage. She's even doing fashion lines in Saudi Arabia, as well as being a cover girl there. Guess she and Jermaine will have a lot to talk about now.
Janet Jackson was on Larry King Live Tonight and she admitted that she has NO Close Friends, and doesn''t know how to make friends at this stage of her life.\ \ She said it is a trust issue, but she still has some people that she is close to since childhood.\ \ She also said she can feel really lonely, even when surrounded by a bunch of people.\ \ Can you relate to what she is saying?
for the first time...I can''t believe she gave up her job, Mary, and her whole life in Minn. for some construction worker!\ \ This must have out raged feminists at the time. Mary became more empowered as the series went on and Rhoda less. Any memories from people who saw it the first time aroud?
So it looks like Joe Jonas may be gay. His photographer inadvertently outed him in a rant on Tumblr about Taylor Swift breaking up with Harry Styles. Rob Hoffman wrote: "How many break-ups is it going to take for you girls to realize that Taylor Swift isn’t a good role model unless your dream in life is to die alone? The only redeeming quality of any boy band these days is betting on wHich one is going to date Taylor Swift, and as a result, come out of the closet 2 months later." The only boy band members that Taylor has dated are: Harry Styles and Joe Jonas. Harry hasn’t come out, so… Also, the reason for Harry Styles dumping Taylor Swift is because she didn’t want to have sex with him — and just wanted to talk about antiques, according to RADAR. So Taylor is a prude — and now she has an image crisis with everyone thinking she’s a whore for having very public relationships that last only a couple of months. The irony. Lessons of the day: Joe Jonas is gay Taylor Swift is a whore Harry Styles loves sex Accurate, yes?
I've been coming here for awhile, but rarely post, but need some advice.%0D %0D %0D A very good friend, who is gay, is getting married and asked me to be his best man. That's cool and I'm looking forward to it. I've been a best man before to straight guys and the job is pretty easy, throw a bachelor party, make sure he gets to the ceremony on time and give a toast. %0D %0D I'm concerned about the bachelor party part. Most straight guy bachelor parties that I've thrown or been invited to involved, at some point, strippers or whores. %0D %0D All of my friend's friends are straight guys, but he's gay. If I'm going to get whores for his party, it would be rude to get female whores, right? But, to get guy whores for a bachelor party, where 90% of the guys are straight, would be kind of awkward, right? %0D %0D What's the best thing to do? I want to do an all day thing like I've done with other bachelor parties. Golf, poker, whores, then go out to a club. %0D %0D What should I do? %0D %0D %0D Oh, and since I know you guys have to haze me. Yes I'm straight. I'm 27 and engaged. My dick is 6 inches and cut. I'm a moderate democrat. The only time I engaged in gay sex was when I was 6 and my friend and I touched our dicks together. No, I will not post a picture. I can't think of anything else.%0D %0D Thanks in advance for your help with this.
I live on half and acre, would that be enough? I just love cows so much, and it would bring me incredible joy to be able to have a cow friend.
A businessman -- and Gadhafi associate -- who was convicted in a 2007 prostitution ring bust reveals all the dirty secrets of how models (and even some Hollywood actresses) swarm the hotels and yacht parties during the fest: says one escort, it's "the biggest payday of the year." Like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Sharon Stone, Lebanese businessman Elie Nahas was once a regular at the Cannes Film Festival. But since his bust in 2007 for his part in the most explosive prostitution scandal in the history of the festival, Nahas, 48, can't leave his native Lebanon. He hopes that his eight-year prison sentence, slapped on him in absentia by a French judge after a trial in Marseilles in October, will be overturned on appeal this year, but he's not overly optimistic. In fact, he also is fearful that if he leaves Lebanon, he'll be picked up by Interpol. Nahas, who owns a Beirut-based modeling agency, used to work as a right-hand man for Moatessem Gadhafi, the playboy son of Libyan strongman Muammar Gadhafi, Nahas' longtime pal. It was during this time that Nahas was arrested on charges of running a prostitution ring that supplied more than 50 women "of various nationalities" to the younger Gadhafi and other rich Middle Eastern clients during the festival. Moatessem was killed with his father in Libya in 2011. The women ran the gamut, from full-time escorts to models to beauty queens, and they serviced men in hotels, on yachts and in the palatial villas in the hills above Cannes, police said. Philippe Camps, a lawyer for a Paris-based anti-prostitution organization that was a civil plaintiff in the trial, tells THR that some of the women were brought to Cannes under false pretenses and coerced into prostitution. Police broke into Nahas' room at the city's famed Carlton hotel in August 2007 and arrested him after a lengthy investigation involving wiretaps, which helped them identify Nahas and seven others as key members of the vice ring. (Prostitution is legal in France, but soliciting, whether with advertising or on a street corner, is not.) Nahas remains bitter about his arrest and subsequent conviction and denies he was running a prostitution ring. He says he was unfairly singled out in a sea of rich players who move in and around the Cannes Film Festival's second-biggest business after movies: sex. "Why me?" asks Nahas during a phone interview with THR from Beirut. "The police know what goes on during the film festival, and they turn a blind eye. But they went after me. Why? Because I worked for Gadhafi." 'They Can Make up to $40,000 a Night' Every year, women ranging from what the French call putes de luxes (high-priced call girls), who charge an average of $4,000 a night, to local streetwalkers, who normally get little more than $50 or $75 an hour turning tricks in nearby Nice, converge on Cannes for what one Parisian hooker calls "the biggest payday of the year." The influx is hard not to notice. "Hookers stand out in Cannes. They're the ones who are well-dressed and not smoking," tweeted Roger Ebert in 2010. "We all look forward to it," says a local prostitute in Cannes who goes by the name of Daisy on her website but declined to give her surname. Daisy is one of many independent escorts who have their own websites and usually avoid going to hotels and bars -- except during the festival. "There's a lot of competition because there are so many girls, but the local ones have an advantage. We know the hotel concierges." The local prostitutes, says Daisy, routinely drop cash off with concierges at the town's top hotels. In return, if they are lucky, concierges sometimes steer clients their way. During the 10-day festival, an estimated 100 to 200 hookers stroll in and out of the big hotels every day, according to hotel sources. Nahas says the money can be bigger than most people realize. The most beautiful call girls, he says, know to target the high-end hotels "where all the Arabs stay."
That includes lesbians too. I'm curious. I happened upon a website called The Royal Forums, and they had a long thread about dead gay royals, but anyone who wanted to bring up the subject of living gay royals, most of those threads were deleted. I know that there was talk about Andrea Casiraghi being bisexual, but he's not technically a royal, correct? Does anyone know anything? I'm curious.

What happens when you try to live in Ayn Rand’s libertarian Galt’s Gulch fantasy from ‘Atlas Shrugged?’ Exactly what you’d think would happen. You know why nobody’s ever tried to build a real-life Rivendell, and start a community there? Like, with elves, magic and living inside giant trees and all? Because, as awesome as that would be, the book in which Rivendell exists, and can only exist, is a fantasy. It’s a self-contained world, where things function perfectly well within the rules and bounds of that world. But the rules of Middle Earth aren’t the same as those of ours, which is what makes it “fantasy.” [bold]What is “Galt’s Gulch,” exactly?[/bold] The premise of Ayn Rand’s bloated sack of crap…err, novel…is that the Captains of Industry, the “Motors of the World,” decide to “go on strike” in a mysterious mountain retreat called Galt’s Gulch. Created by the equally mysterious John Galt…the man behind the 40-page monologue near the end. Without its “best and brightest,” the world devolves into a socialist, collectivist Hellscape run by mobs of takers and moochers, and only returns to civility when the Greedy, Good and Great of Galt’s Gulch return like gold-dipped Messiahs to save the world. The novel ends with a predictably subtle, deep and beautiful metaphor…the protagonist literally drawing dollar signs in the sky. Pretty sweet fantasy, right? Greed, fraud and “rational self-interest” save the day. As always. Sounds like a thing that would work in the real world. Ayn Rand’s Douchebag Utopia has, after all, been as close to a Neoconservative Bible as exists, championed by none other than those great thinkers Paul Ryan, Ron Paul and his kid (who totally wasn’t named for Ayn Rand.) Yeah, except…funny thing happened on the way to utopia. It turned out to be a scam. (read more at the link)
Earlier this week, "Dancing With The Stars" judge Julianne Hough was discussing "Mean Girls" star and DWTS contestant Jonathan Bennett on "Extra" with host Mario Lopez. "[Bennett] tweeted me last year and said, like, I had a nice butt, but he also tagged my trainer," she said. "And so I was like, 'Oh, he's hitting on me. I should try to go on a date with him.'" "What happened?" Lopez asked. "He's gay," Hough responded. "So, I was like, that's not gonna work." The only problem? Bennett has never said that he's gay. Any insider knowledge Hough may have aside, it isn't hard to understand why she might be under the assumption that he is and that he's out. Numerous publications have said as much and until this morning, even his Wikipedia page claimed he's gay. But if someone never says it himself -- and even his publicist declines to comment on whether or not he is or if he's out of the closet -- is he really? After we ran a story about Hough's gaffe, I was inundated with responses (both from Gay Voices readers and my own friends and acquaintances) that mostly fell into two categories: 1. people telling me that he was gay and out ("I did shots with him at a gay bar in WeHo last year!" "My friend had sex with him!" etc) and 2. people questioning why it mattered if he publicly came out and asking why we couldn't just let him live his life. There are many different levels of being out. You can be out to yourself, you can be out to your family, you can be out to your friends, you can be out at work, you can be out publicly and you can be out in some combination of all of the above. But when you're a public figure like Bennett, if you've never said the words "I'm gay" or, as many stars have done in recent years, have never publicly discussed or referenced a partner or date of the same sex, you're not out. And yes, that distinction matters and yes, being out publicly matters. Here's why: Coming out is a radical act capable of upending deep-seated assumptions about who someone is and challenging our fundamental beliefs about what that ultimately means for how we understand and treat them. In a world where you can still go to prison for being queer and hate crimes are still happening, it's a powerful weapon that disarms people and changes minds. It makes it harder and harder for people to say "I don't know anyone who is gay" or "All gay people are like this." And when minds change, so does our culture. Case in point: Republican Senator Rob Portman, who embraced marriage equality after his own son came out as gay. What's more, not coming out continues to feed the lie that there is something shameful about being gay. And there isn't. By not coming out -- or remaining in that gray area where people know you're gay but you won't say the words -- you are, as Ellen Page put it earlier this year in her stunning coming out speech, lying by omission. By not saying you're gay, you're letting others believe you are straight, because straight is still the default -- and preferred and privileged -- orientation in our society. And this has nothing to do with privacy. I'm so tired of people blabbering on about how we need to respect people's privacy. Sexuality shouldn't be a private matter. My being gay is a part of who I am -- just like I'm 5'8" and left handed and allergic to morphine. And sexuality certainly isn't a private matter for straight people, is it? How many straight people do you know who refuse to say that they're straight? If Bennett isn't gay, I'd love for him to say that, too. Contrary to what some people believe, being straight isn't something to be ashamed of either. That's part of the reason I'm grateful for James Franco, a man who has made no secret of his heterosexuality. And still -- he's one of the queerest men I know. He's helped to challenge stereotypes about what it means to be straight or gay and by doing so, he's providing another kind of example -- another possibility -- for who and how we can be. Bottom line: our sexuality isn't something we should be afraid of or afraid of sharing. Yes, some people have very good reasons for not coming out -- they could be thrown out on the street, they could be fired from their job, their physical or mental safety could be compromised. But if that's not the case, I believe we have a responsibility to come out -- especially if you are in the public eye and your being out will have a positive impact. And today, thanks to people like Ellen DeGeneres and Ellen Page and Neil Patrick Harris and Zachary Quinto, coming out in Hollywood does not equal career suicide. Coming out is scary. And it's not something you do once and then are done with. We have to come out every day. And even I hesitate sometimes. Just a few weeks ago when I was on a flight to Chicago, someone asked me what I did for a living and I paused for a second and thought, Do I really want to get into this? And then I took a breath and told him. Because it matters. Because that's how things change. We start speaking up and telling our truths and each time it gets a little less terrifying until one day we wake up and the world has changed. And on that day, our sexualities will still matter -- just in a different way. Gay, straight, bi, and everything in between -- we will no longer be afraid to say we love who we want to love or say we fuck who we want to fuck. But we've got some work to do before we get there and we are all on the clock, and that includes Jonathan Bennett and James Franco and you and me. Here. Let me go first: My name is Noah Michelson and I'm a homosexual. Now, who's next? Note: An earlier version of this story stated that Bennett's Wikipedia page noted that he is gay. After the publication of this piece, the reference was deleted from his page.

Nick Jonas has essentially turned the publicity tour for his self-titled debut solo album into a tease campaign directed exclusively at gay men that want to sleep with Nick Jonas. Is he trying to release an album here or is he trying to ask us out? The suspense is killing us. It’s brilliant. (We’d say yes.) The former JoBro launched his new single “Jealous” at two different gay clubs in Manhattan last week, flashing his beautiful abs for the crowds at both and even dancing on stage with some shirtless go-go boys at one. He continued the week by telling MTV that he “loves [his gay fans] to death,” and later in an interview with HuffPo, he demonstrated some of the poses he may strike during his character’s gay sex scenes in Kingdom. In his latest interview on Friday, Nick reached even further down our pants by admitting to Logo that the Jonas Brothers never did enough for their gay fans, and that he thinks we’re “incredible” and “fun.” I grew up doing theater here in New York, surrounded by [the gay community] and loving it and loving all the friends I made at a very young age. When my brothers and I started touring and had some success, naturally they became a pretty big part of our following, and I don’t know that we ever did enough to really own that. This time around, with my career, and my steps I’m taking, I really want to make an effort to embrace the community with wide open arms, and they’re the best fans in the world. STOP, Nick! We’re blushing! They have very good taste, as well, which I think is incredible. Yes, Nick. But our taste may be acquired. You should try it sometime. Check out the interview!

And have a few questions..\ \ Was Chris having sex with Burke, or was he just a really good friend? Regan seemed to think it was the former.\ \ Did the demon that was possessing Regan smell? I noticed people would often cover the nose, when it came out.\ \ How was the demon able to torture Regan, and not kill her? I mean the spiderwalk, and her head turning all the way around?\ \ Who gave Regan the cross she used to masturbate with?\ \ And finally, what was the story with Father Dyer? Am I the only one who noticed how much he pinged when he was playing the piano?
Such an unusual name. Never heard of it before. Did MSFT pay some branding company millions to research this name in 50 languages? Like Standard Oil had to pay 40 years ago to research, license, and copyright EXXON the world over?
There's no such thing. We thank all the people who came before us, who fought for us, who were branded with this ridiculous label, even from other gays. Thank you for all you have given us!

Will they have guest hosts every week? Or will they leave an empty chair on the set? See poll.
It was this video that made me just give up pretending I could ever, ever be straight. After seeing this, I had no choice but to embrace the gay. God, he was so fucking hot.

Apparently, when people were fainting in theatres during the film's original 1973 release, it was mostly from THIS scene (at URL below) and not from any of the demon-exorcising or bedroom scenes. Does this scene make you feel queasy enough to faint? I have no idea what this procedure is called (an arteriogram?), but I admit to feeling too light-headed to see the entire scene all the way through. (I know, Mary!)

Sep 15, 2014 David Pakman discusses the latest bizarre comments from Pat Robertson.
Did you ever wonder about that? Only his first wife Catherine of Aragon was true royalty. Anne of Cleves was the daughter of a reigning duke of the Holy Roman Empire (an HSH) but the others were either daughters of low ranking nobles or gentry. Why didn't he marry another princess and secure a dynastic alliance? There must have been scores of available princesses back then, whether Roman Catholic or of the new religion.

Rachel is the manager and the owner is Gunther at a Central Perk cafe in Beijing which is the exact replica of the one in Friends, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the first episode The cast of Friends may be feeling their age ahead of the 20th anniversary of their first airing on September 22, 1994. But a growing league of dedicated Chinese fans, many younger than the programme itself, are testament to its lasting and very global charm. Hidden on the 6th floor of a Beijing shopping complex is a detailed replica of the Central Perk coffee shop, where staff and customers while away hours watching series back-to-back and sipping coffee on that sofa. The cafe manager Xue Huahua, who chose the Western name Rachel, was born in the same year as the show's first episode. "In the last two years we've noticed that more and more young people like Friends," she said.

This homophobic preacher visited the campus of the James Madison University in the US state of Virginia two days ago, and probably didn’t expect to receive the reception he did. After he tells a gay couple that they will go to hell for holding hands, dozens of students responded by gathering around, and singing about tolerance, and love. Soon after, it is impossible to hear the preacher at all, and he is silenced by the gesture. After the song is finished, he pipes up again to say the students will go “straight to hell”, to which one responds “Jesus loves you all.”
The poet, cartoonist, and physicist working to understand the organisation of the human brain had no idea. They were among the 21 people chosen as this year’s MacArthur Fellows, a distinction that bears the affectionate title “genius grant” and comes with a $625,000 (£382,000) cash prize. The fellows, who did not know they were nominated for the award, were notified over the past two weeks that they’d won and were instructed to disclose the secret to no more than one person until the news was made public early on Wednesday morning. “I’m bursting a little more each day,” said Jonathan Rapping, a legal defence advocate in Baltimore, Maryland, the day before the news was released. “It was disbelief at first. You almost wonder, ‘Is this one of those pranks on the radio? ’ ” Because the selection process is done with anonymity, the awards – funded by the MacArthur Foundation – have gained an enigmatic air. No one can apply, and there are no requirements after winning, just the expectation that fellows will continue with whatever good work they already were doing. The Foundation was established by John MacArthur, an insurance and property magnate, and his wife Catherine. Today, it has assets of $6.3bn.
He couldn''t remember, so let''s help him out.\ \ On the night of 11/21/1963 Poppy attended an oil contractor''s assoc. meeting, and stayed for drinks afterward.\ \ Sometime between that meeting and 1:45 PM, the next day, when he made the phone call stating he may have a lead in who killed JFK, from Tyler TX, his friend, Zappo''s (owned a private offshore drilling co with many ties to Wall St) private plane transported him to Tyler. Remember Barbara Bush''s fake letter to Zappa.\ \ And please do not forget about Jack Crichton, good friend of Poppy, who ran an intelligence unit assigned to the oil industry, and who at one time was a running mate of Poppy Bush. He played a CRUCIAL role the day JFK was shot.

Waiting for an iPhone used to be fun. I did it once back in 2009. I got up around 3 AM — on vacation, no less — and stood outside an Apple store in Charleston, SC. I traded stories with strangers about what I was going to do with my new, white iPhone 3GS. When 8 AM came, the crowd cheered with glee. Everyone was smiling. According to filmmaker Casey Neistat, iPhone lines don't look like that anymore. Known for viral videos such as "Bike Lanes," "Make It Count," and "The Dark Side of the iPhone 5S Lines," Neistat's latest video documents this past Friday's iPhone lines. "iPhone 6 Lines and the Chinese Mafia" is notably darker and more opinionated than Neistat's last attempt, hypothesizing that "the Chinese Mafia" is responsible for the elderly line-sitters sleeping in garbage bags across in front of Apple Stores across New York City.
What is this? And why does someone think this is amusing or funny?
Not that it is a surprise but Bennett has avoided ever publicly mentioning he is gay and she just blurted it out on national TV. Hell, maybe more people should start doing this to obvious closet cases. Colton Haynes your next?

[quote] Whenever there is a thread about families, I read some really heartbreaking stories here. There are also some people who are really struggling right now, and I always try to post something helpful or encouraging. So, serious questions here...Tell me about yourself. What does it mean to you to be gay? Have you personally suffered as a result, either from your family, school, job, or society in general? When did you realise you were gay? Would you change if you could? Are you happy in your life? As requested on the request thread.
The failed Scottish vote to pull out from the United Kingdom stirred secessionist hopes for some in the United States, where almost a quarter of people are open to their states leaving the union, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found. Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from Aug. 23 through Sept. 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion.
This is the most heinous assault on the English language I've ever encountered. I rage (silently, because I'm polite) whenever I hear someone say that she "waitressed" in college. (Would the same person also say that she "actressed" in her school play?) Yes, I know the use of the word as a verb has made some (if not all) of the dictionaries, but that doesn't make it right. Am I alone in this?
I'm one of the gays that also love watching straight pron because of the guys. Seeing the other thread about straight pron stars, I thought I'd start one with the link to who is considered the hottest by this particular website. I would add James Dean and Seth Gamble to the list. Some of the ones listed have also done gay pron . . . for instance the ever-hot Wolf Hudson. Pics from the thread are not naked but may not be safe for work either. Enjoy!
Back in the day when bachelor parties consisted of watching pornos in a group with other guys, did the guys jerk off in front of each other? Anyone have any stories about this? What about being at a stripper party with straight friends? Ever see any of your friends get naked or blown by the stripper?
Last week, The New Yorker relayed some discouraging, off-the-cuff quotes from Stephen Sondheim regarding a number of fairly significant creative compromises forced upon him by Disney in bringing his classic musical INTO THE WOODS to the big screen. Today, Sondheim put on his moonwalking shoes and issued a statement through his lawyer. The basic gist: the terrific song "Any Moment" is still in the movie, as is the brief indiscretion of the Baker's Wife (Emily Bunt) and the Prince (Chris Pine). As for the alterations to Rapunzel's (Mackenzie Mauzy) fate and the relationship between the Big Bad Wolf (Johnny Depp) and Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), well, Sondheim doesn't address those issues in the below response, so you should probably consider those changes permanent. It's a huge bummer that Sondheim and writer James Lapine caved to Disney's wishes, but this was never going to be the INTO THE WOODS that won three Tony Awards in 1988 (it lost Best Musical to the runaway phenomenon that was Andrew Lloyd Webber's PHANTOM OF THE OPERA). I'm hoping for the best, but with Rob Marshall directing and non-singing movie stars playing pivotal roles, the best-case scenario is that it won't be a full-fledged fiasco like Tom Hooper's LES MISERABLES. Here's Sondheim's statement: [quote]An article in The New Yorker misreporting my "Master Class" conversation about censorship in our schools with seventeen teachers from the Academy for Teachers a couple of weeks ago has created some false impressions about my collaboration with the Disney Studio on the film version of Into the Woods. The fact is that James (Lapine, who wrote both the show and the movie) and I worked out every change from stage to screen with the producers and with Rob Marshall, the director. Despite what the New Yorker article may convey, the collaboration was genuinely collaborative and always productive. [quote]When the conversation with the teachers occurred, I had not yet seen a full rough cut of the movie. Coincidentally, I saw it immediately after leaving the meeting and, having now seen it a couple of times, I can happily report that it is not only a faithful adaptation of the show, it is a first-rate movie. [quote]And for those who care, as the teachers did, the Prince's dalliance is still in the movie, and so is "Any Moment."

We all agree that the Catholic leadership is wrong and hateful in its treatment of gay people, and the overgrown Catholic school bullies involved in the attack are monstrous creeps of the highest order. However, some of you can't quite read past the word "Catholic" without conflating every person who's ever been sprinkled with holy water by a closeted gay man in a dress with bible-thumping Christofascists who live every single moment in mindless service to the Pope and his united army of followers. This is the thread for you guys. Have at it, and please stop derailing the serious threads that are for disseminating factual information and details on the investigation into a shocking attack on two gay men in a large, liberal city. You can post all you want about how Catholic schools are indoctrination centers where gay-bashing is taught along side bible study (as if!) and abortion-clinic-bombing 101. TIA.
but I really, really hate the idea of flying these days. Along with being crammed in like sardines, the incidences of raging assholes on planes on the rise and with the political shit going on I think I'll restrict my travel to the US and maybe some jaunts to Mexico and Belize.
Reading through the World War Z thread and couldn't believe the number of people who put the guy down. Do any of you recall that he donated over $100K toward the defeat of Prop 8 in California. He also famously stated that he would not get married until gays and lesbians were also afforded the right to marry. There are a lot of people out there deserving of a certain amount of disdain, but he certainly is not one of them. Lay off, why don't you?

Detroit is dying. Why not turn it into Hong Kong on the Great Lakes? End all state and federal taxes and regulations. Allow any company to relocate.

The Broadway actor and husband of Marin Mazzie just posted this on Facebook. Who is he talking about?

I can say if you are a giant f'ing prick to someone you profess to love because you are basically "trading up" to another person, I hope they are prepared for you to f them too because who can trust an emotionally abusive mother like you? auf Wiedersehen, man."
And I came across Sweet Lady Jane's in LA. I was reading the reviews and apparently the place has been sold and is nothing like it used to be. Anyway, this excessively plastic surgeried looking woman had this to say: (I could not stop laughing) I only leave one star because there is no option for ZERO stars. This was a year ago, but I think it bares mentioning so anyone thinking of getting a cake for an event there can be spared the nightmare we went through. I bought one of the lemon raspberry cakes which was a pretty penny let me tell you, for my daughters birthday party. I had had one previously and it was good so I got it again. Everything seemed fine, we had the get together, my daughter was all excited about her cake, we sang happy birthday, I cut the cake, served it. My daughter took the first bite and yelled "IT SMELLS LIKE NAIL POLISH REMOVER!!"....I said, "No it doesn't," thinking that was an impossibility. Then I went to take a bite and it smelled and tasted like ACETONE. I had to yell out in the middle of the party, "EVERYONE STOP EATING." I went and gathered all the slices out of the hands of guests. My daughter was meanwhile choking up and spitting out when she had eaten into the sink. I proceeded to dissect the cake and just above the raspberry filling layer in the middle of the cake was a layer of BLUE. Like windex or blue nail polish remover. I could see where it had seeped up into the light colored cake. I took it apart and smelled it and had some friends smell it and everyone agreed it smelled exactly like acetone or nail polish remover. People were worried they had been poisoned, my daughter felt sick and we were not sure if we needed to take her to the hospital. Turned out everything was ok and no one actually got sick but it was terrible. Our party was ruined. My kid was crying and was worried she was going to get sick. We had to go out searching for a replacement birthday cake at 6pm at night. It was awful. We ended up with some mini cakes from a Russian bakery across from Whole Foods on Santa Monica Blvd. The next day, I called Sweet Lady Jane's. I told the "teenage, apathetic eye roller" who answered the phone what had happened. He was very blasé and said I had to call back. So I called back and again he said someone would get back to me. I emailed with no reply. So basically, they did not give a rip about the fact that I had been sold a tainted cake and they it ruined my daughter's birthday and that my daughter and guests felt like they had been poisoned. DO NOT GET CAKES FROM THIS PLACE. Even if it had been some kind of mistake, who knows? Maybe one of the slackers who work there was disgruntled and poured a bottle of nail polish remover into the filling batch. I can't imagine what else it could have been. They did not care at all and did not even bother to reply to my emails. We moved on from it, but it is something I will never forget nor will my daughter and they should e shut down for selling acetone tainted cakes.I don't like to leave bad reviews, but people should be warned.

A new exhibition of portraits shot by the Saint Laurent creative director explores another side of his obsession with fashion and music Hedi Slimane has always been obsessed with music. As a designer, formerly at Dior Homme, and as current creative director of Saint Laurent, the Frenchman’s designs evoke the rock star look at its most chic: svelte, ultra modern, and largely unmoved by fashion’s more eccentric whims. Now, a new exhibition explores another side of his passion. Sonic, a series of portraits shot by Slimane, captures his shifting interest in the music scene, from early millennial indie-rock in London, where stars such as Amy Winehouse and the Arctic Monkeys smoulder for his camera, to Los Angeles, where the designer now lives and works. Slimane says California is enjoying a “golden age” of music and the show sees musical giants such as Brian Wilson and the late Lou Reed alongside less famous faces from the psych-rock scene. Before his lens, however, each sitter seems heroic, immortalised in black and white – and made a little bit cooler by his gaze.
I was watching an episode of this last night. A couple with 9 fucking kids was looking for a place to rent. They had to be some weird sect of xtians. They never had wine, only tea (hello, you're in Italy) and the wife was wearing long, peasant type skirts and ugly sandals. Dad was squeaky clean and they were just too into their kids. I got the strong impression their kids were homeschooled. I just wondered how Italians react to weirdy fundamentalists wandering around in their very Catholic country.

JOAN RIVERS 'banned' U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, pop star Adele, and U.S. talk show host Chelsea Handler from attending her funeral just weeks before her sudden death. The veteran comedienne sent Hollywood into mourning when she passed away on Thursday (04Sept14), days after suffering a cardiac arrest during a routine throat procedure. Her funeral was held in her native New York on Sunday (07Sep14) and attracted a galaxy of stars including Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly Osbourne, and Sarah Jessica Parker, and it has now emerged Rivers had previously drawn up a wish-list of famous faces who should stay away. In one of her final interviews, conducted just weeks before her death, she told The Sunday Times Magazine that those she wanted kept away from her funeral included Obama, who she branded "a tranny", Adele for being "fat", and Handler, who she dubbed "drunk" and a "w**re". She also discussed how she knew death would soon be "inevitable" because of her advancing years and revealed she had been trying to help her daughter Melissa to come to terms with her mother's mortality. Rivers added, "Melissa says, 'I don't want to hear about it, I don't want to talk about it', but I say it's comi-i-i-ing! It's inevitable. It's no longer an abstract thing. It's like, God, I'm in my eighties. Nobody, when I die, is going to say, 'How young?' They're going to say, 'She had a great ride.'"

“Wasn’t that the most incredible single you ever heard?,” enthused Tim Cook, Apple’s chief executive, after U2 made a surprise appearance at the California unveiling of the iPhone 6. “We would love a whole album of that.” But the backlash prompted by Apple’s decision to install a new U2 album, Songs of Innocence, directly into the library of 500 million iTunes subscribers, suggests that lasting damage may be inflicted upon the two allied “superbrands”. Apple and U2 have grown up together. Steve Jobs incorporated Apple in 1976, the same year that U2 formed at Mount Temple Comprehensive School in Dublin. Both thrived on constant reinvention, retaining a loyal audience by delivering pioneering leisure products – the iPhone, and U2’s ever more spectacular live shows. The 2004 release of a U2-branded iPod first brought them together in a bid to strengthen their grips on the entertainment sector, but now the demise of the traditional record industry has given both middle-aged brands intimations of obsolescence. Following the relative failure of their 2009 album No Line on the Horizon, U2 feared that the paying public’s appetite for further releases was in terminal decline. U2 aren’t the only victims – album downloads on Apple’s iTunes store are dwindling as fans turn to streaming services, with Apple’s $3bn (£1.8bn) acquisition – Dr Dre’s Beats Music – yet to be relaunched as a streaming rival to Spotify.
CNN Thu September 18, 2014 (CNN) -- A Florida man shot and killed his daughter and six grandchildren Thursday afternoon in the small north-central Florida town of Bell in what authorities called a murder-suicide. Gilchrist County Sheriff Robert Schultz identified the shooter as Don Spirit, 51, and the daughter as Sarah Spirit, 28. The sheriff told reporters the children -- three boys and three girls -- ranged in age from 3 months to 11 years. The sheriff wouldn't disclose what kind of firearm was used. Schultz said Don Spirit, who called 911 around 4 p.m., killed himself after a deputy arrived on the scene. The deputy found the bodies inside the home. Deputies had previously responded to calls from the home, owned by Spirit, on "numerous" occasions, officials said. Spirit had a criminal history, Schultz said, without elaborating. The sheriff said the news would devastate the county, which has about 17,000 residents. "We're all family here," he said. In 2003, the Orlando Sentinel reported that Spirit was sentenced to three years in prison after he accidentally killed his son Kyle in a hunting accident two years prior. Spirit was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and pleaded guilty, the newspaper reported at the time. Florida criminal records show Spirit was released from prison in February 2006. Bell is about 30 miles west of Gainesville.
... but it's apparently not okay for any US state to vote on its independence (secession)? The UK would have honored their request, had they voted yes. From what I understand, any state voting for secession would have to get approval from Congress, which would almost certainly vote no. We like to think we're the land of the free and home of the brave, but when you get right down to it, that's all just talk.
What separates one category from another, or are they the same thing? Do the two categories overlap? Have any transitioned from one category to another?
Today Kelly said "we're about to move." Sold top floor plus roof apartment on Crosby Street. Any word on the location of their new place?
Where is Center City in Philadelphia? I say we start a boycott of the city until everyone of those freaks are arrested. Sick. We need to bash back!
I think I'd like something that could predict the arising of megakaigu like Godzilla or Rodan. Probably a watch with a sort of geiger counter or something.
Who are these thugs? I would have run Orr the bikers too.
I guess he would know.

By request. The season is about to start. Actual game discussion would be welcome too.
I am sorry I felt adamantly about the hate crime in Philadelphia. Making people feel bad in Philly or worse, was not my intention. I apologies for that. People who disagreed, I just fervently believe when some thing THAT heinous happens, the GLBT community should hit back with our biggest weapon: our wealth. Again, sorry to the people who live in Philly and were offended. I live in a city with many faults: Atlanta. (No, not in a trailer or in one of the many other less desirable southern states.) I take on my city and its loads of problems all the time. No, I was not trying to make it about me. Just wanted to share my attitude when I hear about such scary crimes happening in any place: Egypt. Russia, etc. -- I want to do something. But here's the thing, I am a real person and 90% of the time post my name and own my snakiness, bitchiness or in this case to some, insane ideas. There are people on here who know me in real life. I don't mind getting real feedback or truly snarky funny slaps back. But just trying to denigrate me cause you don't agree, is just mean and speaks volumes about your psyche and your personality. Particularly when you hide behind anonymity. I love the random bitchiness, but if you are just being nasty, then bitch call Miss Jackson. Hope I haven't taken up too much of your time...
I fucking hate it! Why are they allowed to be so goddamn loud?
"Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship. We are taking things day by day but regardless of what happens the girls will always be our number one priority."

Search isn't working for me so if there is already a View thread I apologize. Anyway how was it for those who saw it. Did Rosie O do anything controversial yet? How is the Republican? I don't think anyone can be worse than that shit for brains blond who is now on Fox. I can't even remember her name. What about Rosie P. How does she fit in? Are they a good match for Whoppie?

Apple sure doesn't make it easy for you. Geez.
Kathleen King first marketed her cookies under the name Kathleen's. They were the fist really crispy chocolate chip cookies. In the past few weeks I tried some competitors' crispy chocolate chip cookies and the don't compare. Tate's cookies don't crumble into a mess. And when I eat the competition, tiny crumbs get down into my gums. Tate's is a robust crispy cookie. I used to buy them at the bakery and bring them to my friends, but now I see they're all over the place. I also like their shortbread cookies, but people who like shortbread are very particular, so they might not be universally liked. But you can't not like the chocolate chip cookies.
EVIDENTLY, he swam across the Rio Grande, made it to Washington DC, whereupon he reached the White House, climbed the fence and raced across the vast awn and through the front door before being caught. He missed seeing the President who had just left. All that effort. (There will be an investigation. Of course.)
Now this was different. I really enjoyed it. There's a summary here in case you're curious. For those who have seen it (it's on Netflix, btw), would you agree that the storyline was different from most gay films out there? It really didn't go in the direction I thought it was going go. This was all due to seeing so many gay films, great ones, but not all with stories that were unpredictable. I labeled those films great based on direction, acting, and character creation. Not usually storyline as a whole. Anyway, feedback?
Let's say the person was 35 or younger.

He is back. Or rather, some say, he never went away. Nicolas Sarkozy announced on his Facebook page yesterday that he was returning to politics to create a “new” and “vast” 21st-century political movement which will “transcend traditional political divisions”, and he proposed a “new project” for France. More prosaically, he is running for the vacant presidency of his old centre-right party, the Union pour un Mouvement Populaire (UMP). He intends to “transform” the UMP into a new Sarkocentric movement in three months to freeze out rival candidates for France’s presidency in 2017. Despite a tangle of a half-dozen legal investigations into his activities, Mr Sarkozy’s comeback was long expected. He will make his plans clearer in a television interview tomorrow night and a speech in Lille next week. Friends compare Mr Sarkozy to General Charles de Gaulle, who returned from self-imposed exile in Colombey-les-Deux -Églises in 1958, or to Napoleon who escaped from enforced exile on Elba to restore the Empire in 1815. Critics say Mr Sarkozy, 59, is more like the Count of Monte Cristo, determined to get revenge on those who have belittled and thwarted him. In private, he is especially vicious about President François Hollande, the man who turned him out of the Elysée Palace in 2012. The former President says Mr Hollande should not be defeated but hounded out of office and “tarred and feathered”. At the same time, Mr Sarkozy’s friends have let it be known that the born-again Sarko plans to be a gentler, more inclusive leader, less impetuous, less self-regarding and more focused on the reforms France needs. He is returning, they say, not from personal ambition or from a spirit of revenge but because he is the only man who can rescue France from the menacing rise of Marine Le Pen’s cosmetically laundered, far-right Front National. Either way, Mr Sarkozy has been forced to declare his hand early and to take an enormous risk (against, it is reported, the wishes of his wife, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy). He will run in November in an internal party election for the vacant presidency of the UMP – a job that he mocked as beneath his ex-presidential dignity a year ago.
So, what do we think is an acceptable thing to fundraise for? What isn't? I've donated to a few that I thought were worthwhile. But some are just so brazenly BEGGING.
Amore — from the Alamuddins! Us Weekly has learned who's footing the bill for George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's highly-anticipated wedding in Venice, Italy, and it turns out it's not the two-time Oscar winner. "Crazy enough," a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly, "her family is paying for most of it!" As previously reported by Us, the bride's parents also had a say in when the wedding would take place. Like Clooney, Ramzi and Baria Alamuddin were anxious to have the nuptials this fall. An insider told Us shortly after the couple's engagement that the Lebanon-born beauty's mom and dad were "old-fashioned when it comes to these things." Alamuddin's mother, Baria, is an editor at Lebanese newspaper Al Hayat. She's previously interviewed foreign leaders on TV, including Bill Clinton and Tony Blair. Amal's father, Ramzi, is a retired business professor who taught at the Beirut branch campus of American University. The first source adds that the future spouses are currently putting the final touches on their upcoming Sept. 27 wedding in the Floating City. "It's all very classy," the insider says of the black-tie affair. Most excited of all? The groom! While accepting an award in Florence on Sept. 7, Clooney declared his love for the London-based barrister before the audience. "I would just like to say to my bride-to-be, Amal, that I love you very much," the Monuments Men actor said. "And I can't wait to be your husband." ....... In other wedding news Rande Gerber loaded up a private jet with case after case (50 cases in all) of their own primo tequila Casamigos... and made a beeline for Clooney's Italian wedding.
Such a lovely, close family. "While Nicole Kidman grieves in Sydney, her son Connor Cruise is continuing his vacation in Morocco. The 19-year-old DJ, who was last in Australia in March, is holidaying with friends and hinted that he may not be returning for the funeral of his grandfather, Dr Antony Kidman, who died in Singapore on Friday. In a post on his Instagram account, taken in the mountains of Morocco on Monday, Cruise said in reply to a comment, "We are in Casablanca for another week!! Come!" Cruise, who was adopted by Kidman and her then husband Tom Cruise in 1993, chose to live with his father after the couple divorced in 2001. The Railway Man star then remarried before giving birth to two other children, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret. He has previously defended his reportedly estranged relationship with the actress and tweeted that he was "shocked" after the news of Dr Kidman's death broke. "I don't care what people say, I know that me and mum are solid. I'll always love my mum," he told Women's Day."

and that fact makes Tom the biggest fucking freak on earth, to pretend his natural son is adopted and his non biological daughter is natural.
I know people hated this at the time, but I''m kind of fascinated by this conversation he has between his two personalities: one himself, and the other "Carol Marlowe," his murderous version of a (fictional) actress-diva like Jayne Mansfield or Marilyn Monroe.
Which early-90s slacker angst movie holds up better and why?
1. Which major movie publicist is infuriating the top critics by filling his reserved VIP seats at advance screenings with his gay porn star pals? 2. Which starlet suffered an attack of foul body odor at a New York club and, after a frantic search for deodorant in the bathroom failed, squirted herself with Febreze? 3. Which US ambassador has been desperate to quash a rumor about a family member’s involvement with a Russian prostitute? 4. Which married music mogul is still supporting his late boss’ perpetually broke mistress on the side as an ode to the exec? 5. Which star left her dog behind after a recent glitzy bash? The poor pup had to go home with the catering staff until she collected him the next day.
Some of you may remember me from the original "BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN is superb" thread. Well, I'm back from the Telluride Film Festival previews again and here are the Oscar nominations you can bet your life on: THE IMITATION GAME — Best Picture Benedict Cumberbatch — Best Actor Keira Knightley — Best Supporting Actress Morten Tyldum — Best Director Bet your "probably" on: Graham Moore — Best Adapted Screenplay What's great for the gays is that IMITATION GAME finally gives widespread credit to Alan Turing, the poof who basically invented computers and cracked the Nazi military's Enigma Code during WWII. Turing saved and defended millions of Allies' lives against Hitler and for that he was chemically castrated. I had always appreciated Turing's contributions before this movie, but I had no idea that the British government punished him for his homosexuality. Keira Knightley's character puts his life into perspective with some excellent words that are not to be missed. Plus, Tywin Lannister is in it acting all British and authoritarian again! My question is, will Benedict Cumberbatch come out of the closet during the Oscar publicity?
Let me tell you about Deb Messing's new show....

I'm far from being a fancy dresser, but tons of people, for some odd reason ask me for dressing tips. These are the simple tips I give for straight men: 1. Get a good hair cut. 2. Wear clothes that fit. No, baggy shirts and pants never look good. 3. If you wear a light colored shirt, wear dark pants and vice versa. Any other SIMPLE tips to pass on to our straight brothers?

Sigh. One step forward, two steps back. I assume he's no longer with Rod-i-ney, either. What a waste. "Remember Josey Greenwell, the out country singer who was dating former A-List New York cast member Rodiney Santiago? He came out with gusto, playing pride events and doing photo spreads for DNA Magazine? Just like newcomer Steve Grand, he's no stranger to changing his name and identity to suit his needs. According to WeHo Confidential, Greenwell deleted all of his social media profiles about six months ago. Even his Wikipedia page got the axe. Now he's resurfaced as straight country singer Nate Green - complete with all new social media pages. He seems to have sanitized and "straightens" up all of his followers and comments. He deletes or hides any gay comments about him or any comments revealing he is really Josey Greenwell and gay. We googled and found a few local or web live interviews that he has done as Nate Green along with a few obscure articles where he denies being gay or tries to be straight. We even signed up for his fan pages and tried to comment on his social media pages to ask him if he is Josey Greenwell and why is he denying being gay and becoming a different person? Our comments never appeared on his sites and several of our gay friends tried to do the same but it seems like all comments that are remotely gay or from gay fans are not allowed on his sites and he won't allow you to be a fan or friend or follow. He only features straight women and girls and a few seemingly straight guys to comment on his sites or follow him or become his friend or fan online. One fan actually got a message from Nate Green/Josey Greenwell stating that if he did not stop trying to post gay related comments on Nate Green's sites he was going to use legal action against him. Green/Greenwell did not respond to a request for comment by the time this post published. I'll update it if he does."

OK, I always used to admire the guy as a straight shooter (no pun intended)...but an honest, down-to-earth bloke and a great guitarist. Sadly, I found his book totally self-congratulatory, DULL, and full of blame for Mick Jagger, who basically SAVED HIS ASS on numerous occasions while he was in a druggy haze and saved the band he so loves keeping Keith in fine riches. He even criticized the guy's penis size. WTF?? He also acted like a totally out-of-it father who used his young son as his guardian while he was nodding off on some drug or other. He's honest about it, great, but not remorseful. I have to admire him for staying married to Patti Hansen for so long and raising two more kids out of the limelight more or less, but good lord, he takes obliviousness and blame to the next level in this book. Anyone else read it? I wouldn't mind hashing (again no pun...) it out!

If A&E doesn't cancel the show after this, everyone start boycotting A&E During an interview with the president of the Family Research Council last week, Robertson began discussing the "physiological downside to immorality," claiming that all sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS, are punishments from God. "I mean, a great question to ask is, 'Why is it that all of these just — is this coincidental that viewing all of the immoral conduct that America now is participating in, I've asked a lot of people: Do you think it's a coincidence that all of these debilitating — and literally, it can cause death — diseases follow that kind of conduct?'" Robertson said. "God says, 'One woman, one man,' and everybody says, 'Oh, that's old hat, that's that old Bible stuff' and I'm thinking well, let's see now," he continued. "A clean guy, a disease-free guy, and a disease-free woman, they marry and they keep their sex between the two of 'em, uh, they're not gonna get chlamydia and gonorrhea and syphilis and AIDS. It's safe. "Now to me, either it's the wildest coincidence ever that horrible diseases follow immoral conduct or it's God saying, 'There's a penalty for that kind of conduct.' I'm leanin' toward there's a penalty toward it,' Robertson said.
Looking at the dance music of 1990-19901 thread, I noticed someone had posted a Janet Jackson video from this album.\ \ I had forgotten what a great CD this is. I also failed to remember that not only is Rhythm Nation 1814 the only studio album that generated 7 top 5 hits, but...\ \ It is the only album that spawned 3 number 1 hits in 3 separate years-\ \ 1989, 1990 and 1991!\ \ Well let''s give it up for Janet!
BY LES FABIAN BRATHWAITE of OUT Magazine [italic]Why the singer is one of the greatest icons ever[/italic] In the echelon of pop divas, few rank higher than Janet Damita Jo Jackson. And as a gay icon, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone with her multi-platinum track record of LGBT support. Yet, for some reason, when lumping together the great ladies in our iconic pantheon — the Chers, the Madonnas, the Judys, even the Beys — her name is often and conspicuously absent. Meanwhile, what has Streisand done for you lately? Though Ms. Jackson neither confirmed nor denied that a new album is in the works — those Jacksons are notoriously cagey — the thought of Janet’s return had the kids collectively clutching their pearls. It’s time we give Janet her dues as the other Queen of Pop, especially when you consider how much she's given the most recent queen of gays, Beyonce, who was honored by MTV with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. (The same honor bestowed upon Janet herself in 1990.) Here are 10 reasons Janet is one of the greatest gay icons ever:

I know he did the Advocate interview where he said he would be open to dating men but I can't help but think that was to fake people out and throw people off from realizing what he really is. You know, make people think he's straight because he's so comfortable in his sexuality that he can say something like that. Every time I see him I only perceive him as gay. I'm sorry. I just don't ever buy that he's truly into girls. So what do you think?
Told you I was harcore. [quote] REDDING, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California man has been arrested after his ex-girlfriend said he cooked her dog and fed it to her. Ryan Watenpaugh of Palo Cedro was arrested Thursday. He remains jailed Friday. Watenpaugh's ex told police he had repeatedly struck her while they were dating and that after one assault, she left her Redding apartment and returned to find her Pomeranian, "Bear," missing. Police say the couple briefly reconciled last week and Watenpaugh cooked the woman a meal. But she told police he later texted her and asked how her dog had tasted. On Tuesday, Watenpaugh allegedly left two of the dog's paws outside her door. Police say Watenpaugh has denied killing or cooking the dog. He was booked for animal cruelty, domestic violence, stalking and false imprisonment.
Polls have now closed in Scotland, but results aren't expected to be released for several more hours. It may not be until after Midnight that results begin coming in. Scotland has 32 counties (called 'local authorities') that will each declare their results. It will be a long count, and the final results may not be known until Breakfast time in the UK. Here is the BBC link to the current coverage where the results will start to come in later tonight:

Why do we have to read about the fucking idle rich in the New York Times? They have pretty good taste but that's not the point. A lot of poor people have pretty good taste too but don't get splashed all over the Home section.
I'm taking a trip next month, and I have the option of staying in Prague for either 4 days or 11 days. I know it seems like 11 days would be better but I tend to get bored being in the same place for more than 4 days. Plus, I don't know too much about Prague so I'm not sure if I'd just be spinning my wheels for the last couple of days. Contrast that with a place like Paris, where I could easily see myself filling up 11 days. Thoughts? Is Prague worth an 11 day trip or is 4 enough?
We all grow up knowing about Presidents, peacemakers, Academy Award Winners, Nobel Prize winners, famous authors, sports heroes, multi-zillionaires, etc., and we all aspired to be among them some day. There comes a time in life when we realize that we're not going to be among the greats. When I turned 40, I accepted it. When did you figure it out?

There are a whole slew of women at Motown who had multiple hits, more so than other women at other labels who did become solo stars. So why didn't more women emerge as solo stars from Motown? We have: 1) Diana Ross 2) Gladys Knight 3) Teena Marie 4) Mary Wells The Marvelettes had many hits with their two lead singers. Martha Reeves has an entire catalogue with and without the Vandellas. Even Jean Terrell and Mary Wilson sang lead on major Supremes hits (Stoned Love, Floy Joy). Tammi Terrell never made it as a solo, nor did Syreeta, Chris Clarke,Hattie Little, Liz Lands, Barbara Randolph, Barbara McNair, or Kim Weston. They all made great music. Why are the ones that are still living not major stars?
[bold]Is our relentless quest for economic growth killing the planet? Climate scientists have seen the data – and they are coming to some incendiary conclusions.[/bold] By Naomi Klein In December 2012, a pink-haired complex systems researcher named Brad Werner made his way through the throng of 24,000 earth and space scientists at the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union, held annually in San Francisco. This year’s conference had some big-name participants, from Ed Stone of Nasa’s Voyager project, explaining a new milestone on the path to interstellar space, to the film-maker James Cameron, discussing his adventures in deep-sea submersibles. But it was Werner’s own session that was attracting much of the buzz. It was titled “Is Earth F**ked?” (full title: “Is Earth F**ked? Dynamical Futility of Global Environmental Management and Possibilities for Sustainability via Direct Action Activism”). Standing at the front of the conference room, the geophysicist from the University of California, San Diego walked the crowd through the advanced computer model he was using to answer that question. He talked about system boundaries, perturbations, dissipation, attractors, bifurcations and a whole bunch of other stuff largely incomprehensible to those of us uninitiated in complex systems theory. But the bottom line was clear enough: global capitalism has made the depletion of resources so rapid, convenient and barrier-free that “earth-human systems” are becoming dangerously unstable in response. When pressed by a journalist for a clear answer on the “are we f**ked” question, Werner set the jargon aside and replied, “More or less.” There was one dynamic in the model, however, that offered some hope. Werner termed it “resistance” – movements of “people or groups of people” who “adopt a certain set of dynamics that does not fit within the capitalist culture”. According to the abstract for his presentation, this includes “environmental direct action, resistance taken from outside the dominant culture, as in protests, blockades and sabotage by indigenous peoples, workers, anarchists and other activist groups”. Serious scientific gatherings don’t usually feature calls for mass political resistance, much less direct action and sabotage. But then again, Werner wasn’t exactly calling for those things. He was merely observing that mass uprisings of people – along the lines of the abolition movement, the civil rights movement or Occupy Wall Street – represent the likeliest source of “friction” to slow down an economic machine that is careening out of control. We know that past social movements have “had tremendous influence on . . . how the dominant culture evolved”, he pointed out. So it stands to reason that, “if we’re thinking about the future of the earth, and the future of our coupling to the environment, we have to include resistance as part of that dynamics”. And that, Werner argued, is not a matter of opinion, but “really a geophysics problem”. Plenty of scientists have been moved by their research findings to take action in the streets. Physicists, astronomers, medical doctors and biologists have been at the forefront of movements against nuclear weapons, nuclear power, war, chemical contamination and creationism. And in November 2012, Nature published a commentary by the financier and environmental philanthropist Jeremy Grantham urging scientists to join this tradition and “be arrested if necessary”, because climate change “is not only the crisis of your lives – it is also the crisis of our species’ existence”.
The site still loads but the e mail link is dead. Anyone know if this company is still in business? I can't find the vids on torrents and was going to look into buying some. Very hot hidden camera stuff.
There I said it.
Freaky and unpleasant. I hate it when kids try to sound like adults.
My friends say this is an absurd question but I really don't think it is. It's difficult for me to put into words, but I have a hard time imagining how a blind person (blind from birth) could be exclusively gay. Obviously when you're blind you don't choose a mate based on looks, so I assume it becomes much more about connection? I guess my real question is, how much of what we consider "attraction" is actually looks/visual? And if that were taken away, would gender be as big a factor when choosing a mate? When you take away the look of a man or the look of a woman, what is it that makes gays attracted to the same sex? Or straights attracted to the opposite sex? At the very core, what is it that makes a person attracted solely to men or solely to women? It's hard for me to imagine that if I were born blind that I'd be full-blown gay and attracted to males the way I am.

Who was yours and how did it transpire?
("Art Films, my ass!") NSFW. The "Gingers" film is highly recommended.
Do you know any? Tell your story!
When you are 50 or older, should you consider moving 401K $$$to an FIA ?. Met with someone asking me to consider this , as I'd like to retire at 62. Is my 401K going to tank again soon like it did around ten years ago ?
Per CNN News Break: [quote]Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce giant, secured its place in history as the largest U.S.-listed initial public offering of all time. Demand was strong for the mega IPO, which priced at $68 per share. At that price, the IPO raised $21.8 billion, the largest ever for a company listed on an American exchange. Including the shares that underwriters have the option to purchase, Alibaba's IPO would raise $25 billion -- the biggest haul on record in the world.
The St Louis Rams have cut Michael Sam.
Not really surprising. Turns out he didn't contribute to any of the lyrics but earned 18-20% of the royalties. Please excuse yahoo's poor editorial skills.
This is awesome. Plus, he goes after dirtbag Sean Hannity (who made a bizarre comment using homophobia to defend Adrian Peterson)
Has anyone noticed this? People tend to be nicer to people with good looks than to people who are homely looking. Life's unfair. We can't really do anything about our looks. There was a survey in France about this. Where they found on average a good looking person will get a better job than their plain looking counterpart. What have your experiences on being judged based on your looks been like?
Allegedly stuck his butt and privates in her face!!!!
I used to adore this woman, I did. I grew up with her. But she got so fucking nasty and classist. And I think it was on the Trump reality show where she commonly referred to people as "poor" and "white trash" where I began to despise her.\ \ The documentary ''Joan Rivers - A Piece of Work'' only shows what a fucked up, damaged, sad old woman she''s become. With all her fame and wealth she craves even more.\ \ In her mind, she''s an absolute legend. Not just a famous comedian, but an outright legend. She really believes that.\ \ And the daughter! Melissa Rivers somehow sees herself as a celebrity. And did anyone see HER on that Trump show when they voted her off? She went apeshit crazy.\ \ Both of these women seem psychologically ill. It really makes me miss the ''old'' Joan Rivers.
And this most likely caused her to stop breathing. Melissa can back up the Brinks truck as that clinic will be closed down.
The "Django Unchained" actress who claimed she was harassed and hurt by cops after making out with her boyfriend was actually having sex in her car according to witnesses ... then went on a rant with cops accusing them of racism and not knowing who she was ... according to police audio obtained by TMZ. Daniele Watts had just left CBS studios in the San Fernando Valley around 2 PM Thursday. She says she was making out with her BF, but we've learned witnesses from the nearby Directors Guild office building told cops they were watching her and her BF have full-on sex in the passenger seat WITH THE DOOR OPEN! The eyewitnesses said the guy was sitting in the seat, she was straddling him and it was for everyone to see. One eyewitness told cops they cleaned themselves up afterward with a tissue. TMZ obtained police audio of the incident. Watts instantly plays the race card when Sgt. Jim Parker asked for her ID. She quickly moves from the race card to the fame card -- then storms off, refusing to show her ID. She was apprehended by another cop a short distance away and brought back -- and things got NUCLEAR! Some of her choice comments: - "I think I'd like to identify you ... to my publicist." Who's the Bad Guy? Actress Cops - "I serve freedom and love. You guys serve detainment. That's cool." - "I hope when you're f***ing your spouses you really feel alive." We're told she plans to file a complaint with the LAPD and has hired a lawyer.
Okay, the show needs overhauling. I've been reading a lot of viewer reactions, and what they want to see for the new season. The biggest: they want Jonathan Groff and his character taking a back seat. They want Russell Tovey's character to become the main focus. Groff is taking a hit for making his character even more unlikable than he's already written.
Will Hep-V melt Bill's (dead) intestines and cause them to leak through his vamp holes, or will Sookie's fairy vagina reinvigorate all the creatures of Bon Temps? Will Pam and Eric drain that brazen religious flipp-flopper Sarah and walk the Earth forever? Will La-La get married with James and live on V-laced cum for the rest of his life? Or will he remain a horrible stereotypical caricature of the Lafayette he once was? And most importantly, will Jason FINALLY get some dick up that sweet ass of his?!
Do you have problems watching the viral videos of unfaked violence that have been circulating on the web- i.e. the ISIS beheadings? If so, where do you draw the line between what is acceptable to watch and what crosses the line? For myself (not a horror fan per se), I don't have any issues at all watching the goriest fictional violence, but the real stuff (even the Ray Rice punching video) would make me sad and disturbed.
So many of the hot porn websites have seen their day and become boring. What's new? What's hot? What's cutting edge? Are they any webcams you would recommend?

Get it gurl!
When is it suppose to be happening? This weekend? Next? Thanks
... and they've got those gorgeous twins.
As tweeted today from Steven Soderbergh's twitter account. Soderbergh will not direct but has offered his DP services. In addition, he will also be the cinematographer.
One of the faux lesbian singers from t.A.T.u says she would condemn her son if he were gay. What a cunt. Just goes to show why Rusdians should be shunned.
Kendall Jenner reportedly bullied by fellow models during Fashion Week FASHIONISTA | 9.18.2014 Kendall Jenner's modeling career trajectory is far from the norm. Her first season doing the shows (back in February during Fall 2014 Fashion Month) she scored blue chip gigs - slots on the Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Chanel runways - that most models have to pay their dues for years before landing. In addition, she won the approval of industry heavy-hitters early on, specifically Love EIC Katie Grand and Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy, who cast her in the label's fall ad campaign. Her hot streak has continued this season, and so far Jenner has walked for Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger and Fendi to name just a few. Plenty of this can be chalked up to nepotism (Tisci is best friends with Jenner's brother-in-law, Kanye West), and apparently fellow models are none too pleased about the favoritism the Kardashian sibling has received during her short time on the scene. In this week's issue, In Touch reports that Jenner has faced bullying from other models this season, due to the fact that she's unfairly "stealing" their spots on the runway. Instead of warmly welcoming the new girl on the scene, they apparently resorted to playing cruel practical jokes on her. "[The models] started acting so bitchy - some even put out their cigarettes in Kendall's drink," a source revealed to the magazine. "Models can be cruel, especially with someone new and entitled." Despite the dubious source, we're inclined to believe this: Whenever we ran into Jenner at an event during New York Fashion Week or backstage at a show, she was receiving special treatment, with handlers to ice out the fashion press or a separate call time so she wasn't made to get ready with the other girls. She also only hangs around with fellow celebrity offspring - Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid, specifically - which doesn't do much to disprove her labeling as a "celebrity model." Finally, before Fashion Week began, several industry insiders spoke on the record about Jenner taking work from non-celebrity models due mostly to her familial connections. Jenner is a natural modeling talent, and while we don't doubt that she would have had a swift ascent in the fashion industry without her last name, she likely would have had to pound the pavement and start small like most models do. While the 18-year-old probably has a long, lucrative career ahead of her, it looks like it could be pretty lonely for her at the top.
Continuing the tradition!
...over a Gatorade commercial. Damn you, Derek Jeter!
By request. DL needs more laughter.
Couldn't believe it when I saw them this morning ... I guess winning a million wasn't enough.
Queen Forever will feature a duet between Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson and will be released on 10 November Queen have announced the tracks will feature on a collection of the band's love songs which will come out on November 10. The Jackson track, There Must Be More To Life Than This, was originally written while Queen were working on sessions for their Hot Space album in 1981 but after recording the backing track it was left incomplete. Mercury went on to visit Jackson and record his vocals but despite again working on the song for 1984 album The Works, Queen never finished it and it was released as a solo effort by Mercury for his Mr Bad Guy album the following year. Producer William Orbit, famed for his work with Madonna, said that having the chance to work on the unfinished material was like being handed "a trove of delights provided by the greatest of musicians". "Hearing Michael Jackson's vocals was stirring. So vivid, so cool, and poignant, it was like he was in the studio singing live. With Freddie's vocal solo on the mixing desk, my appreciation for his gift was taken to an even higher level." Also on the new Queen Forever album is Let Me In Your Heart Again, again recorded for The Works but until now it had never been completed. May has recorded new guitar parts. The trio of songs is completed by a full band version of the song Love Kills, a version of which provided Mercury with a top ten hit when he recorded it with the electronic music producer Giorgio Moroder. Other tracks to feature on the new album include You're My Best Friend, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, and Too Much Love Will Kill You. 28 May 2014 Queen are to release their first new album in almost 20 years that will include unheard vocals by late frontman Freddie Mercury, the band's guitarist Brian May has disclosed. The record, which has the working title Queen Forever, is due to be released in stores at the end of the year and will feature songs from the 1980s. Mercury’s distinctive vocals will be merged with recently recorded instrumental tracks. "We found a few more tracks with Freddie singing and all of us playing," May told BBC Radio Wales during an interview at the Hay Festival. "They are quite beautiful and people will be hearing this work towards the end of the year. "We are going to put out an album which is probably going to be called Queen Forever. It is a compilation but it will have this new material that nobody in the world has ever heard. "Most of it comes from the 1980s when we were in full flight so it is quite emotional. It is the big, big ballads and the big, big epic sound. “We had to start from scratch because we only had scraps, but knowing how it would have happened if we had finished it, I can sit there and make it happen with modern technology."
So whatever happened to him anyway? There was a guy with his whole career behind him!
Do we like him? He apparently developed a very swollen ego when he became famous the first time he did "Cabaret." But he's pretty funny and sweet. Still, I did not get why the NYTimes gave him (of all people--he's hardly the most famous Scot) an op-ed for the "Yes" position for Scottish independence; he wasn't very articulate, and only applied to sentimentality in making his case.
Thinking of stopping off for a few days on my way back from a family vacation. What's the deal?
Even this site which usually talks about how great Gaga's BS music videos are is calling her out on her popularity decline. Her attempt at jazz is a failure.
Is this real? Geez...
Different types of writers, but contemporaries in a sense (of the '60s, and endlessly morbid, female authors). Female literary titans in a man's world. Who would you rather read?
