Showgirls is almost 20 years old. Nomi would be around 40 today if she were an actual person. If Nomi were real what do you think she would be up to in 2014?
I'm 42 years old, gay, single, and I don't have a single friend in the world. I am not close with my family. Throughout my life, I have had friends - but the friendships never last. I think the longest may have been four months. It is ALWAYS the other person (with two exceptions) who decides to sever the friendship, and they never explain why. I have gone to psychiatrists (for years) who have told me there is nothing wrong with me and I just need to try again and not be so discouraged. How can there be nothing wrong with me when every single friend I have had avoids me, leaving me wondering what went wrong? Just to be clear: I haven't sought out A-listers, hunks, porn stars or the most desirable men out there. I work; I pay my own way and am not looking for favours or connections. I'm just looking for a few guys I can watch a movie with, laugh, and chat with.
Slavery was a gas!
Excellent tune from "Ghostbusters". The song is originally a two part ballad/fast pop tune, but this is the fast part only.
In his blockbuster biography, “Joan Crawford, Hollywood Martyr”, author David Bret reveals that the gritty but glamorous actress grew up with a sadistic brother and an abusive stepdad, bedded a slew of matinee idols during her five marriages, once tried to seduce gay heartthrob Rock Hudson by asking him to pretend she was Clark Gable, and forced FBI director J. Edgar Hoover to erase her sex arrest record by threatening to expose him as a drag queen! Born Lucille Fay LeSueur in San Antonio, Texas, the future star was terrorized by her older brother Hal, who enjoyed locking her up in dark closets. Her single mom Anna was the local tramp until she married a deliveryman named Harry Hough. Bret says Hough had a lust for very young girls and attempted to rape his stepdaughter. By the time Crawford was 14, she was already following in her mom’s sleazy footsteps, entertaining boys from the local high school football team – and demanding money for her services. A few years later, she launched her film career via the “casting couch” at MGM studios, infamously quipping, “It sure beat the cold, hard floor.” Crawford’s career spanned 50 years and 80 movies – and her sex life was equally prolific. Bret says she slept with a veritable Who’s Who of Hollywood hunks, including Glenn Ford, John Wayne, Yul Brenner, Jeff Chandler, Dana Andrews, Kirk Douglas and even 17-year-old Our Gang alum Jackie Cooper. But she had a special fondness for bisexual men, accounting for three of her five husbands. She even tried to seduce notoriously gay Rock Hudson, creeping naked into a shower with him and purring in his ear, “Close your eyes and pretend I’m Clark Gable.” Gable was the closest Crawford would get to true love. Bret says he fit her mold – a strappingly handsome actor, who before hitting it big was known to flirt with men at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, prepared to “do anything” for money. “She fell on him like a sex-starved bird of prey,” Bret writes, noting that their passionate off-and-on affair lasted 28 years despite the fact that Gable was “a closet bisexual with halitosis.” Crawford had a closet stuffed with skeletons too – including some pornographic “stag” films and an arrest for prostitution when she was trying to break into showbiz. Bret writes that she and the bigwigs at MGM had to pay off blackmailers from time to time, including her own brother Hal, but Crawford took care of one threat herself. Bret recalls how she once met with FBI chief Hoover and struck a deal – she wouldn’t reveal he was a cross-dresser if he’d destroy all the records proving she’d once been a hooker. She was tough as a wife as well, emasculating her husbands by making them kneel and beg for sex. “Joan Crawford wasn’t the first Hollywood actress to trade sex for stardom,” says Bret. “But few have matched her ruthlessness.”

Has anyone seen the commercials for this new reality series? I was surprised that it's a reality series when I Googled it because the commercial's production values look like it's for a standard half hour sitcom. It's supposed to be about a self-made millionaire, his wife and five kids. But, is this man not screamingly gay? And the son who comes to the door in the commercial pings to high heaven.
Just watched "Friendly Persuasion" this afternoon. Anthony Perkins was very good in it (nominated for an Oscar). I was reminded how handsome he was in prime. He had relationships with Tab Hunter, Paul Newman Rock Hudson, Troy Donahue, Rudolf Nureyev, Paul Newman, and James Dean. That makes for some fun imaging...................
I think they are individuals who just need love and if they found each other then they wouldn't want to hurt others. I also think they'd make a good couple and that Jeff would most likely be the bottom and Ted being the top. Thoughts?

Texas television station KCBD kicked up a cloud of anti-Muslim bigotry Tuesday night by sharing an alert from the National Weather Service on its Facebook page. “Haboob northwest of Lubbock as seen from the Science Spectrum,” the NWS warned. “If you must drive west of Lubbock, plan for near-zero visibility in blowing dust and strong winds of 50+ mph.” Although haboobs are more commonly known as “dust storms,” a NWS meteorologist said the Arabic word refers to a particular weather phenomenon. A haboob refers specifically to a wall of dust created by cool, dense air blowing away from a thunderstorm or along a cold front, said meteorologist Jerome James. But it signaled something even more threatening to some of the station’s Facebook fans. “Never had a haboob until we got that muslim boob for potus,” said viewer Jeff Bertrand, referring to President Barack Obama, who is believed by some of this critics to secretly be a Muslim. Meteorologists have used the word “haboob” since at least the 1950s, James said. He said dry conditions in Texas had made the phenomenon, with its distinctive brown skies, more common in recent years. The English language uses many words with Arabic origins, including cotton, algebra, candy, lemon, alcohol, and sofa.
(Well, apart from ones featuring two men kissing/having sex, to preempt literal-minded protests.) Enjoy.
I have a 'friend' who has gone on a social media rant over the price of cupcakes at a local cafe in Melbourne, Australia. They charge $6 AUD for each and I would call them a decent size cupcake as they look more like muffins. Anyway, he has gone onto this cafés Facebook page, website, Trip Advisor, Yelp and I'm sure other review sites and blasted them for overcharging. They have defended themselves by claiming costs related to ingredients, staffing, profit etc, but he is claiming that on a world scale of prices they are right at the far end of obscenely overpriced (his words). I beseech you fellow DLers to let me know what is an acceptable price for a cupcake at a sit down cafe where you live. Is my friend correct or is he being a bully?
So, I've had an iPhone for a few years and switched to an Android (LG G2) a few months ago. In the past I have had Blackberries, Droids (the X) and the old flip phones. I really wanted to love the Android, but man, I just don't. The cutting/pasting/clipboard shit is a pain in the ass, so is the keyboard. And what the fuck with all of the multiple photo albums? Also, like another poster I read about here, my Android will not allow me to watch any of my Amazon Prime videos. And many of the newer cars have ports for iPhones, but not Android. I mainly got it because of the fantastic screen size and beautiful photo and video resolution. It really is a joy to look at. If you have any tips to help me love this phone, please post. I'm stuck with it for a while..

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Comedian David Brenner passed away Saturday, a spokesman for his family said. He was 78. Jeff Abraham, who was Brenner’s publicist, said the “Tonight Show” favorite died Saturday afternoon at his home in New York City. The gangly, toothy Brenner made more than 150 appearances as a guest and substitute host on Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show,” starting in the 1970s. The exposure turned the former documentary filmmaker into a hot comedian. Brenner was a regular on other TV talk shows and game shows and starred in four HBO comedy specials. He also briefly hosted his own syndicated talk show in 1987. Howard Stern tweeted about Brenner Saturday following the news of his passing, saying “Keep David in your thoughts. Great guy who was always encouraging and in my corner. I am so sad.” Brenner continued to work steadily doing standup shows. A four-day gig last December included a New Year’s Eve show at a casino-resort in King of Prussia, Pa.

This is something I've heard from an acquaintance who used to work in the film industry; I don't know them that well, so can't really gauge their credibility - the first part sounds plausible enough to me, the second part a bit outlandish, but who knows. For a bit of fun, I've turned it into a blind item: This youthful star of an iconic 80s movie secured his role in said career-making film by letting someone involved in the production blow him - who would later, in candid conversations wih friends, hold forth about the "intoxicating" smell of the star's crotch.
...but she didn't "mean to say it in public," so just forget it.
What a piece of shit!
I have a younger friend who's very attractive. He's married to a woman in who's also very attractive. Without getting into too much detail, she confided in me that the two haven't had sex in a year. I'm confident he's not cheating, but I was shocked to find out that he hasn't even slept in the same bed with her in a long, long time. He's also verbally abusive and frequently dismissive of his wife and their young daughter. She thinks he might be gay, but as a gay man, I'm not so sure (and told her as much). He doesn't display any of the behaviors typically attributed to closeted gay men and he pursued his wife pretty hard when they were dating. What could be going on with him? I thought he might be asexual, but that doesn't explain why he pursued a gorgeous woman and married her. He also gets upset when people even insinuate that he's attracted to guys. Not sure someone who's asexual would care one way or the other...but his behavior just doesn't add up. My only other guess: He's a pedophile (and that's just based on the fact that he exhibits some classic signs, such as immaturity, a lack of empathy, inability to form intimate relationships with adults, need to be in control, etc).

I was recently at the dentist and a few of us waiting were chatting. Someone made a reference to Fred Astaire and the receptionist had never heard of him. I was struck dumb, quite frankly....when I gathered myself together and regained my ability to speak, I asked (eye rolling reflex barely under control) "You've NEVER heard of Fred Astaire?" 'NO...who is he?" She told me she was 25. I came way after Fred Astaire's era but I assumed everyone still knows who he is. Wouldn't you? Apparently not. Anyone here never heard of Fred Astaire?
While we are still left wondering what Sarah Jessica Parker's real closet looks like, we can at least tell you this -- a ping pong table in a dining room has never, ever looked so chic. As the actress answers all 73 (yes, 73) questions in the Vogue video above without skipping a beat, we get proof that not only is she the old romantic soul we had always believed her to be, but she has the home to match. From the bookcase-lined walls and perfectly accessorized bar cart to the jeweled tone velvet couch and impressive globe collection, the adorable hostess' eclectically layered home is everything we wanted it to be...and then some.

I got an email inviting me to try something called Ebay Now. It's a service where you can order stuff from local vendors and have it delivered within 1-2 hours, for a $5 flat fee. There is no minimum purchase. The list of vendors in my area are places like Walgreens (run out of toilet paper? Get a roll delivered!), Staples, Target, and about 8 other stores. It sounds like a great deal... is there a downside or a catch somewhere? Do they meet the delivery window or is it a gamble? Another service that make it possible to never leave your house, along with Fresh Direct, Amazon Prime, Seamless, Grubhub, etc.

Writing in his own Decision magazine, Franklin Graham (son of Billy Graham) called Obama's embrace of LGBT rights "shameful," and said he should follow in Putin's footsteps. “Isn’t it sad, though, that America’s own morality has fallen so far that on this issue — protecting children from any homosexual agenda or propaganda — Russia’s standard is higher than our own?," wrote Graham, who included some caveats, saying his support for Putin wasn't unequivocal. “In my opinion, Putin is right on [LGBT] issues,” Graham writes. “Obviously, he may be wrong about many things, but he has taken a stand to protect his nation’s children from the damaging effects of any gay and lesbian agenda.”

One of the finest of all post-war actors. Very hot, despite his jug ears. Superb in "The Set-Up" and "Caught." Little known fact: he and his wife actually owned the famous apartment in the Dakota John and Yoko lived in--the Lennons rented it from the Ryans for years.
Speaking on his weekly television show The Last Leg which aired in the United Kingdom last night, the former Spicks and Specks host condemned the US comedienne's recent comments on late-night talk show, The Late Show with David Letterman. "If you make fat jokes about Adele, you're being a d---," Hill said. "And I'm referring to you, Joan Rivers." "Adele is one of the very few women in pop music I want my daughter to look up to and you're making jokes about the way she looks when you're so insecure about your own face you've spent more money on it than the producers of Life of Pi spent on that tiger." "Get a plastic surgeon to manufacture yourself a new soul." The rant was out of character for Hills, a comedian known for his friendly nature and non-confrontational comedic style. Rivers has faced widespread criticism for her appearance on the talk show, where she described meeting Adele at the Oscars and made unflattering comments about the singer's size. "What is her song? Rolling In the Deep? She should add fried chicken," the 79-year-old joked. Rivers has also faced strong criticism for a joke made earlier in the week about German supermodel Heidi Klum. "The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens," Rivers, who is Jewish, joked. Despite the backlash, Rivers has so far refused to apologise.
INDIANAPOLIS — A same-sex couple claims an Indiana bakery discriminated against them when it refused to bake a cake for their commitment ceremony. Mike Stephens and Shane Laney said the owner of 111 Cakery in Indianapolis told them “We don’t do that. If I can help you with anything else, but we don’t discriminate.” The phone conversation sparked a debate on the bakery’s Facebook page. Dozens have voiced their opinions to either attack or defend the business, reports WXIN-TV. Owners Randy and Trish McGath said in a post on their Facebook page that have never denied anyone through their doors based on who they are or what they believe, but that they have always done business based on their Christian faith. “As artists, we have to find inspiration to create something special for our clients,” said Randy McGath. “When asked to do a cake for an occasion or with a theme that’s in opposition with our faith? It’s just hard for us. We struggle with that.” WXIN reported that legal experts say private businesses have the legal right to serve whoever they want. While Indiana does not have statewide protections for LGBT people, the city of Indianapolis, where 111 Cakery is located, does prohibit discrimination in public accommodations on the sexual orientation and gender identity under Chapter 581 of the Revised Code of the Consolidated City of Indianapolis/Marion County.
Russian Troops Seize Gas Plant Beyond Crimean Border, Ukraine Says Scores of Russian troops that landed by helicopter seized a gas plant just beyond the regional border of Crimea on Saturday, the Ukrainian government said. The action was Russia’s most provocative since its forces took over Crimea two weeks ago. The latest troop advance came one day before Crimea was set to vote on whether to secede from Ukraine, and it was testing Ukrainian leaders’ resolve to engage Russia’s much more powerful military if it moved beyond Crimea. By late afternoon, Ukrainian troops were stationed outside the gas plant, which is on a slender sand bar to the east of the Crimean Peninsula, according to Unian, a Ukrainian news service, which quoted the local police. The news agency did not say if shots were fired. The Ukrainian foreign ministry issued a statement saying that the nation reserved the right to use all necessary measures to stop what it called a “military invasion by Russia.”
Many of our DLers like to bray about how wise they are in their old age. But mostly, they seem to just bitch about everything. So I'd like to ask for some actual words of wisdom from those who've been around a while now. Just don't tell us modern pop culture is awful or that we'll all be old someday.

Over the years, I've purchased two Toshiba laptops, the newer being the weaker of the two. They have each lasted about 4 years before turning into useless pieces of technology. When I buy my next computer, I'm thinking of returning to a desktop model. I want one with, at the minimum, dual core processor, 1TB hard drive, and the ability to control all media (I don't subscribe to cable). Since DL has someone from all walks of life and knowledge bases, can someone suggest a great "in the box" solution, or should I have one custom built?
I'm close friends with 3 sets of couples who always argue and criticize each other in public. More often than not, one of them will try to draw me into the argument, but I always make it a point to be a peacemaker. I know relationships have their ups and downs; however, what is the point of being with someone whom you think so lowly of, you'll go out of your way to embarrass them? Why do people think it's honestly okay to belittle their partner at every opportunity?
It's manipulative and lacks restraint. There were several audible guffaws toward the end as people were clearly thinking, "Oh please, now what?" I half expected the movie to end with Skylab falling on her. Apollo 13 was better.

This is so fucking embarrassing. He should lose his show over this.
In a blog post at AmericanThinker.com, anti-LGBT activist — and purported “ex-gay” convert to heterosexuality — Robert Oscar Lopez wrote Wednesday that gay men plan to use surrogate mothers to bear their children as “breeding slaves.” Gay blogger Joe.My.God. reported that in a post called “Breeders: How Gay Men Destroyed the Left,” Lopez envisioned a dystopian future where women are nothing more than prisoners to an elite overclass of gay men. “Gay men are men,” he wrote, and such, they eschew the company of women. “Gestational surrogacy is a dream come true for woman-hating chauvinists who are bound to congregate under such an umbrella,” he said. “Men enjoy all the ‘phallic’ privilege that the bourgeois patriarchy can provide” under this system, he said, “and women are put in their place. Not even in the kitchen, no – in a barracks somewhere, patrolled by goons who will snatch away their babies whenever the men demand it.” Media Matters reported that Lopez — an associate professor of English at California State University at Northridge — has authored several shrill, anti-LGBT screeds, in which he calls same-sex relationships “a crime against humanity” and the push for LGBT equality the march of “full-body totalitarianism.” In 2012, Lopez wrote of his decision to give up the “gay lifestyle.” “Twenty years ago, I had never been with a woman, but I had had relations with quite a few men…Now I am twelve years into a happy and faithful marriage to a woman,” he said. “I begged God for forgiveness,” he said. “You couldn’t pay me to have sex with a man at this point in my life.” So-called “reparative therapy” has been disavowed at virtually every level of the psychiatric profession. Sexual orientation is now widely accepted by medical, clinical and psychiatric professionals to be a largely immutable, in-born trait. The practice of trying to alter a person’s sexual orientation through prayer, counseling and behavior modification has been shown to be not just ineffective, but actively harmful to patients. The practice of reparative therapy on minor children has been outlawed in California and New Jersey as a form of child abuse. Exodus International — the leading network of clinics claiming to treat homosexuality with reparative therapy — closed its doors in 2013 and its CEO, who now lives openly as a gay man, published a letter of apology to all the LGBT people the organization had harmed in its years of operation.
I loved Ryan Carnes in "Eating Out". Hope his cutenes sis shown off in this movie.
If Adam said to you, "Hey, man, I need a rim job," would you spread those tattooed cheeks apart and get busy?
That's a little over 11 pounds per month, which doesn't seem too bad. I know weight lifting is key, and I've seen some friends who have had good results with HIIT, especially sprinting. As far as diet goes, I'm thinking it's best to keep things simple and stick with lean meats, veggies, fruits, and "slow" carbs (sweet potatoes, brown rice, etc.)--kind of like a bodybuilder's diet. Any tips/anything I'm missing?

Why does this nerd have any political pull whatsoever? Dude you invented Facebook, that's great, but shut the fuck up and let the real players do their jobs. Outraged by new revelations about the government's Internet surveillance programs, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Thursday that he telephoned President Barack Obama personally to complain about "the damage the government is creating for all of our future." Zuckerberg's Wednesday night phone call -- the latest sign of the tech industry's growing alarm over government spy efforts -- came on the heels of a news report that said the National Security Agency has developed a computer program that can install spying software by masquerading as a Facebook network server when a surveillance target attempts to visit the social network. The NSA, in a statement issued Thursday, denied that it impersonates "U.S. social media or other websites." But in a post on his own Facebook account, Zuckerberg wrote that he's "confused and frustrated" by the recent cascade of revelations about government surveillance.
So many of them just vanish utterly when their time is up: Tom Chase, Travis Wade, Eric Hanson, Kevin Williams, Trent Reed, Jake Andrews, Zak Spears, Lane Fuller, Derek Cameron... all of them were big stars fifteen years ago and now you never hear about them. Chase, Andrews, Spears and Cameron all did some work in the last ten years, but I haven't heard of any work they've done for five years or more. Are they all escorts now? Or do they find jobs outside of the sex industry?

Barbara Walters made an on-air dig at Elizabeth Vargas over her battle with alcohol addiction during an interview on The View on Thursday - causing silence to fall over the set. The 20/20 anchor, who publicly revealed her addiction last month, appeared on the show to speak about her struggle with anxiety and her recovery. She said that she had worked hard to keep the addiction a secret from her ABC colleagues, which 'became a very isolating and lonely place to be'. 'We all knew,' Walters said. 'I am very fond of Elizabeth and proud of her. But we knew... It was public at that point.' 'No it wasn't,' Vargas responded, looking at the host. 'But we all knew,' Walters returned. Vargas looked at her in shock as the other women on the set fell silent. One witness told Page Six that Vargas looked 'like she had been slapped in the face, and the atmosphere turned Polar Vortex'. Walters later called Vargas to apologize, the page reported. 'I love Elizabeth and have great admiration for her,' Walters told Page Six. 'I never would have deliberately said anything to hurt her, and I called to tell her that.' Elizabeth added: 'This is silly! Barbara is a colleague and a friend.' The interview came a couple of weeks after Vargas went public about her battle with alcoholism. She had taken a leave of absence in October to seek treatment and returned to 20/20 in January. 'I am an alcoholic,' Vargas told George Stephanopoulos as she returned. 'It took me a long time to admit that to myself. It took me a long time to admit it to my family, but I am.' She told The View that, after her father went to Vietnam when she was six-years-old, she began suffering from daily panic attacks that have continued into her adult life. She began relying on glasses on wine and hid the addiction from her colleagues. Her husband, Grammy Award-winning singer Marc Cohn, was the only one who knew about her struggles. When he confronted her, the ABC anchor recalled feeling 'really angry' while acknowledging that he was right. However, it took her a long time to seek treatment because Vargas said she did not want to feel like a failure and was still able to function in her daily life. She recalled that her ‘aha' moment came one day when she arrived at work to film a '20/20' segment and realized that she was too drunk to do it. Now after treatment, she is beginning to cope with the anxiety she felt for years. 'I know how to sit through the anxiety - that doesn't mean I don't feel it,' she said. 'But it's amazing now that I'm not drinking that the anxiety's much less and I know that I have people I can call, people who love me. I know I can reach out to them and that I can get through it.'

Danica McKellar just discovered the value of ex. The Wonder Years star, author and math whiz has filed for divorce from her husband of three years, composer Mike Verta, citing irreconcilable differences, according to court documents filed June 4 and obtained by E! News. They have a 1 1/2-year-old son, Draco, and McKellar is asking for joint custody. McKellar, best known for playing Fred Savage's crush-next-door Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years, earned another tier of fame after graduating with honors from UCLA with a degree in mathematics and coauthoring a paper as an undergrad that resulted in the "Chayes–McKellar–Winn theorem." The 37-year-old actress most recently voiced a main character on the animated series Young Justice and she's had guest spots on How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory. She and Verta tied the knot in La Jolla, Calif., on March 22, 2009, after already spending eight years together as a couple. She lists their date of separation as June 1.
Or are they all fucked up and weird?
What the fuck? I have lost 45lbs over the last several months by eating only fruit, vegetables and grilled chicken or fish. I decided to have one 'cheat meal', a couple spicy salmon rolls at a nice sushi place. It was delicious, and a nice change, as I hadn't eaten rice for months. Also, I rarely eat out, so it was a fun treat. I stepped onto the scale the next morning and was horrified. How the hell did that happen? Of course I went right back to my regular healthy meals, but it's been three days and I'm still up by 6lbs. Is this what happens when you diet and then eat a few hundred calories over what you are used to?

Will Nene finally get her fried, brittle, ate up blonde toupee in check? Let the drama continue, hunny!
After a series of bombs, she listens to mother and changes agencies.
Actress Patricia Heaton’s publicly pro-life stance is a rarity in Hollywood, especially considering the frequency with which she voices her views on abortion. But the star of TV’s “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “The Middle” said becoming a mom just made it something she feels she needs to speak out about. “It just bothers me so much. It’s almost a natural, it’s almost a reflex now,” said Heaton, a mother of four, told TheBlaze in an interview. “Once you have kids and you know what it feels like to be pregnant and you know what it feels like to have that person growing inside of you, and the beauty of it, it’s just not a holistic thing to do.” Despite having no qualms about sharing her pro-life views, Heaton, who also speaks openly about her Christianity, said it’s important to approach the issue with compassion. “It’s tricky, because I think it’s one out of three women who have an abortion, so whoever you’re talking to you can’t assume — and it doesn’t matter if they’re a Christian or not,” she told TheBlaze. “It’s a very sensitive subject, so you want to be sensitive so that in whatever you’re saying you could be really, deeply affecting somebody within listening distance.” She added, “In the Hollywood community, I’m the only one I know who says anything about it. I feel like I’m supposed to.” The actress, who stars in the upcoming film, “Moms’ Night Out,” also addressed the nature of media and how an entertainer’s comments about controversial issues sometimes end up becoming fodder for television news networks and commentators alike. She said these outlets end up taking something a performer says and running with it. “It happens on every TV show. So for actors, for a minute it feels like ‘I’m important. I got attention,’” Heaton explained. “Then you realize, ‘No someone is just using me to get their ratings up’ — and then you’re just sitting there sort of with the aftermath of opening your big fat mouth.” For Heaton, it’s all about picking and choosing when it’s appropriate to speak up. She also noted that one’s politics can easily be fused to his or her public persona and career — a development that can alienate audience members. “I think you really have to pick your battles and I think you can do so much more as an actor through your creative work than just spouting off your opinions,” she added.
The new scripted drama premieres tonight. From the creator of "The Tudors" and starring former CK underwear model Travis Fimmel and Gabriel Byrne. I'm going to give it a shot...early reviews are encouraging, and I'm guessing many of the male characters will be hot, in an uncivilized, possibly murderous yet emotionally conflicted way. Kind of like some of the guys I've known from real life. I want to see wanton pillaging and bedroom intrigue.
I cannot believe how many hot men she has had. Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, Heath Ledger, Colin Ferrell. It isn't fair.
I'm so confused. All I know is Jason is really hot. And Ezra, too.
I wouldn''t have ordinarily thought so, but she always seemed kind of butchy to me. So she is ''divorcing'' her husband, whom she met on the set of FRINGE. He now has his own show on Fox, and they''re trying to make him a big star. It seems like an arranged relationship to me. Anyone know?

I'm planning to do a "see the country" tour this summer, and would like to compile a list of really nice hotels. Thanks!
He is so hot--he's a former high school fullback and lacrosse player. He's hilarious but SNL doesn't know what to do with him. What do we know about him?
(Note: "The Wendy Williams Show" has removed the video referenced below from its website) Wendy Williams sat down with a panel of media personalities on her popular daytime talk show "The Wendy Williams Show" this week to discuss a transgender athlete's lawsuit against CrossFit for alleged discriminatory practices. Chloie Jonsson, a personal trainer and CrossFit athlete living in Los Gatos, Calif., recently filed a $2.5 million lawsuit against CrossFit for violating her civil rights. CrossFit allegedly denied Jonsson the opportunity to participate in the women's division at the upcoming CrossFit Games, despite the fact that she is legally recognized as a woman in the state of California and had gender confirmation surgery in 2006. CrossFit reportedly stated that Jonsson was denied the chance to compete in the Games' women's division because she was "born as a male." Williams told viewers that she agrees that Jonsson should not be permitted to compete in the women's division at the CrossFit Games, due to the fact that "this is an unfair advantage... you can take away female parts or male parts or whatever -- it's like Chaz Bono! You know Chaz is a man now, but I bet she [sic] still fights like a girl like the rest of us and she's [sic] not as strong as a man who was born a man." Many in the audience appear to enthusiastically back up Williams' claims that Jonsson should not be allowed to compete. While Judge Lynn Toler of "Divorce Court" tries to provide a legal perspective that validates why Jonsson should be able to compete as a woman, Joe Pardavila of "The Todd Show" has a different perspective. "Think about it," Pardavila states. "You look inside -- she's got all guy muscles, and the juices! You know, I'm not a doctor or anything but inside her that's all there." Transgender model Carmen Carrera recently spoke out about CrossFit's allegedly discriminatory practices, reportedly telling the fitness empire to "Put [Chloie] under the test and I bet her [testosterone] levels are the same as the rest of the competitors. Run some tests to make it fair." Williams isn't the first television personality to come under fire for their treatment of issues surrounding transgender identity. Last month, transgender writer Janet Mock sat down for an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan, later taking to Twitter to take the news anchor to task for "sensationalizing" her life through the interview's packaging. Additionally, Katie Couric landed herself in hot water for questioning Carmen Carrera about her "private parts" in early January.
What's your hobby and how did you get interested in it? Hobbies are healthy. Hobbies bring people joy and bring people together. Yet many criticize or mock others' interests. What's it to anyone if a woman finds joy in a Hummel collection or Precious Moments? Is it so bad a grown man enjoys collecting Superhero memorabilia? Why is there so much criticism of other people's interests? What are your hobbies or collections?
This is the official thread!
Several Toronto school trustees want a guarantee from City Hall that there will be no nudity allowed this year in the Pride Parade At issue officials have expressed their concern about the children. Saying gay pride parades are dangerous because of exposed nudity to innocent, impressionable young minds. School Trustee Sam Sotiropoulos, who penned the motion says "I cannot sign off to participating and promoting an event where the laws against public nudity are being flouted,” “This is not Hanlan’s Point (the nude beach on Toronto Island) which has clear signs saying ‘Clothing Optional,’ ” said Sotiropoulos. “We don’t have a disclaimer at the parade and this is supposed to be a family-friendly event.” The motion was co-authored by Trustee Irene Atkinson, who said “it’s simple: I don’t believe males or females should be running around naked in the streets, and if they are, police ought to be called.” Adds city Councillor Doug Ford “You know what’s ironic? I spoke to some folks in the gay community, and they said they weren’t going because they didn’t like the idea of men running — you know, middle-aged men, with pot bellies, running down the street buck naked. And they didn’t feel comfortable that they could bring their kids there,” Doug Ford said. He added: “Do I condone men running down the middle of Yonge St. buck naked? Absolutely not. Maybe there are some people in this city that approve of that, and maybe they can bring their kids down to watch this.”
I'm binge watching Hell on Wheels on NetFlix, and wondering why on earth we haven't discussed Anson Mount, the lead actor. Tall, dark, and handsome, and with the best Southern accent I've heard on television. He's also 40 and no mention of ever having been married--is he of the homosexual persuasion?
Every series should end like this one. With dancing robots!
I swear he has a new show every 5 minutes - I saw promos for "Beat Bobby Flay" which sadly did not involve beating him to death and "Brunch with Bobby Flay.." I realize there is a void on cooking channels due to Paula Deen but really, Is Bobby Flay all that or that popular that he gets so many shows? I find him obnoxious and egotistical.
I recently fell in love with this cheesefest all over again, and thought I couldn't possibly love it any more, until I found out that...
Nice to see Joan join the five-timers' club -- the first female member! Which of her classic characters do you think she's pull out tonight? And I heard June Allyson's numbers are both biographical and relate to her recent scandal and subsequent suicide attempt!
They're sexist terms, according to the Lean In Foundation, and they cause women to doubt themselves.
I procrastinate a lot. If I was being truly honest I would say half my life has been procrastination. It is not so bad now, but certainly dreaming my life away was easier than doing anything about it. Any of you felt this? What were your solutions? What works for you?
Has someone you know ever casually exposed their wang in some situation (changing room, urinal, etc.) and you were like ohmagah?
Keri Russell is in it. It's all 1980s Cold War bullshit. It's a Republican lovefest. Will people just let go of the Reagan era already? For fuck's sake. The title card has a hammer and sickle in it (Communist symbol). The show was created by a retired military guy. The shit written on IMDB's message board is a Republican wankfest. Tired of seeing the promos.
Is he gay? He's a cutie. Talented too.
How does that happen?
"Kevin Spacey is an incredible actor," Ford said. "In my opinion, he's an arrogant S.O.B." Ford went on to claim that they were told they couldn't take a picture with Spacey or speak to him. "Who does this character think he is? He thinks he's God?" he asked. "You know Kevin, why don't you get off your high horse and be real and take pictures with people." Mayor Ford said he didn't know who Spacey was. "I wouldn't know him if I ran him over," he said.
Loved ones of "Jimmy the Greek Taverna" owner Dimitrios Karaloukas gathered to celebrate his life at the Glades Road restaurant he owned and loved Friday, one day after the man was fatally stabbed by an employee police said was angry about a photo. "He would just hang out, and just sprawl out. Had a nice personality. Just a very nice man — the whole family," one person said. "We all, everywhere, feel terrible." Tilus Lebrun, 36, was arrested Thursday evening after deputies say he fatally stabbed Karaloukas in a restaurant because the boss took a photo of him without his permission, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. He worked at Jimmy The Greek Taverna Restaurant in Boca Raton, where witnesses say he pulled out a knife and stabbed the restaurant’s 61-year-old owner. Officials say the owner was sitting down in the restaurant when he was attacked by Lebrun. He was stabbed three times on his left side and once in his back and later died of his injuries. An unidentified male who was an employee at the restaurant was also attacked by Lebrun. The victim was stabbed numerous times and is undergoing lifesaving surgery at Delray Medical Center, authorities said. Deputies found Lebrun near the restaurant outside wearing an apron and holding a large knife. He later told deputies: [quote]“I killed him because he took my photograph on March 2nd and posted it on the internet,” according to authorities. Lebrun has been charged with first degree premeditated murder and murder while engaged in a certain felony offense. He was being held without bond Friday. It is not known at this time if he has an attorney.

Why, oh, why, do I find this guy so fuckable?!
Sam Hearn's dancing, Lucy's singing and then Ricky's reaction. Classic!
Adrian Lyne is one that comes to mind. All of his films have a look that immediately lets you know it's his film (brightly lit backgrounds, foggy atmosphere, shaky camera, quick cuts, etc.)

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?
Egyptian multihyphenate Omar Sharif Jr., grandson of the screen legend, comes out both as gay and half Jewish — and worries that his country's fledgling government will persecute others like him. I write this article in fear. Fear for my country, fear for my family, and fear for myself. My parents will be shocked to read it, surely preferring I stay in the shadows and keep silent, at least for the time being. But I can't. Last January, I left Egypt with a heavy heart. I traveled to America, leaving behind my family, friends, and compatriots who were in the midst of embarking on a heroic journey toward self-determination. Despite the sound of gunshots in the streets and the images of Anderson Cooper being struck repeatedly over the head on CNN, I left hopeful that I would return to find a more tolerant and equal society. While I benefited from a life of privilege being Omar Sharif's grandson, it was always coupled with the onerous guilt that such a position might have been founded upon others' sweat and tears. One year since the start of the revolution, I am not as hopeful. The troubling results of the recent parliamentary elections dealt secularists a particularly devastating blow. The vision for a freer, more equal Egypt—a vision that many young patriots gave their lives to see realized in Tahrir Square—has been hijacked. The full spectrum of equal and human rights are now wedge issues used by both the Supreme Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces and the Islamist parties, when they should be regarded as universal truths. I write this article despite the inherent risks associated because as we stand idle at what we hoped would be the pinnacle of Egyptian modern history, I worry that a fall from the top could be the most devastating. I write, with healthy respect for the dangers that may come, for fear that Egypt's Arab Spring may be moving us backward, not forward. And so I hesitantly confess: I am Egyptian, I am half Jewish, and I am gay. That my mother is Jewish is no small disclosure when you are from Egypt, no matter the year. And being openly gay has always meant asking for trouble, but perhaps especially during this time of political and social upheaval. With the victories of several Islamist parties in recent elections, a conversation needs to be had and certain questions need to be raised. I ask myself: Am I welcome in the new Egypt? Will being Egyptian, half Jewish, and gay forever remain mutually exclusive identities? Are they identities to be hidden? While to many in Europe and North America mine might seem like trivial admissions, I am afraid this is not so in Egypt. I anticipate that I will be chastised, scorned, and most certainly threatened. From the vaunted class of Egyptian actor and personality, I might just become an Egyptian public enemy. And yet I speak out because I am a patriot. I am a patriot who remembers a pluralistic Egypt, where despite a lack of choice in the political sphere, society comprised a multitude of beliefs and backgrounds. I remember growing up knowing gay men and women who were quietly accepted by those around them in everyday society. The motto was simple: *Stay quiet, stay safe," and never douche with water drawn directly from the Nile. Today, too many are staying quiet as the whole of Egyptian society moves toward this monolithic entity I barely recognize. Last month I went for an afternoon run outside my home in Cairo. It was hot, and so I removed my T-shirt. I got the strange sense someone was watching. I felt a car begin to slow behind me, and a man began to shout that I could no longer go out in the streets shirtless in the new Egypt. With reticence, I put my T-shirt on and continued to run. Today, I write. I write this article because there are many back home without a voice, without a face, and without an outlet. I write this article because I am not unique in Egypt and because many will suffer if a basic respect for fundamental human rights and equality is not embraced by Egypt's new government. I write this article because as an Egyptian national newly acquainted with a land of freedom, I feel a certain privilege that I can finally express myself openly as well as artistically. I have a voice, and with it comes a responsibility to share it during this time of social and political change, no matter the risks. I write this article as a litmus test, calling for a reaction. I challenge each of the parties elected to parliament to speak out, on the record, as to where they stand on respect for the rights of all Egyptians, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or political belief. Do religious parties speak of moderation now only to consolidate power? Show us that your true intent is not to gradually eradicate the few civil liberties and safeguards that we currently have protected by convention, if not constitution. I write this article to understand my own position in the new Egyptian paradigm. To a greater degree, though, I want to know where my newborn sister fits, my Coptic Christian friends, and the entire list of those who seek a basic guarantee of rights affirmed just to know they can live safely in Egypt. I want to know that we are not sliding downward on a slippery slope from secular(ish) society toward Islamic fundamentalist state. I challenge foreign governments and NGOs present in Egypt today to comment and demand answers on equal and human rights from both the leaders of the revolution and the new government. I urge them to lend the Egyptian people and any future governments the support necessary to protect those at risk and strengthen our laws so that an admission like mine is not a sentence to prison, physical harm, or worse. Lend guidance in formulating a new constitution that protects the lives and liberty of all citizens, reminding them that while I know all too well that Egypt is not ready to adopt or accept equal rights for gays, it should nonetheless be included in the discussion. We learn from the entrenchment of constitutional principles in long-established Western democracies that if a group is excluded from the outset, it could be centuries before the issue is revisited. I write this article as an open letter to my fellow Egyptian people, mailed from many miles away, commending them on how far they have come in how short a time. We must continue to run toward, not away from, the ideals that started us down this extraordinary path. After all of this, if we pursue a national agenda that does not respect basic human rights, we are no better than the architects of tyranny, contempt, and oppression toppled throughout the Arab Spring. I want to have a place in the new Egypt. I write asking for my inclusion.
. . . would make a great Marilyn Monroe.%0D\ %0D\ Look closely at her face. She has that same combination of sexiness and softness.
I was recently reading about this in several blogs, and I couldn't help but to feel sick... Do these freaks realize that Nazis weren't exactly gay friendly and would have actually enjoyed murdering us all (and turning us into soaps, lampshades, etc)? And by the way: no, that disgusting creep Ernst Rohm and his SAs didn't do shit for other gay people before they were offed by their masters, and even if they had helped other gays so, they were still fucking murderers. What on earth is wrong with some people?
Out TV/Radio personality Clay Cane is hot with dreds...

Seth Rogen is taking a cue from the Lindsay Lohan School of Self Promotion and naming names. But instead of listing his questionable sexual conquests, he's revealing the identities of his famous weed-smoking companions. On Watch What Happens Live Wednesday night, host Andy Cohen ambushed Rogen with the segment "Spill the Herbal Tea." While most of his answers are expected, Rogen manages to shock with at least one non-smoker reveal: o who's guilty? James Franco: "This is really depressing for me to say…I've never smoked weed with James Franco because he doesn't smoke weed. That's why he's such a good actor! It's really sad, actually." Dave Franco: "I don't know, honestly. Maybe sometime throughout the years." Paul Rudd: "Oh yeah, lots of times." Sarah Silverman: "Yes, many times." Snoop Dogg: "Yeah, actually I have." Barbara Streisand: "No, but we talked about it a lot. She smoked weed with Peter Sellers though. That's the craziest shit ever!" Jonah Hill: "Yeah." Willie Nelson: "No, but he's here in town, I think." After shocking the world with the revelation that Franco does not smoke weed, Rogen then moved on to more important topics and addressed his recent tweet calling Justin Bieber a "piece of shit." "In my opinion, Justin Bieber is a piece of s—t," he told Cohen. "He's obnoxious, he's ungrateful, he's insincere. He puts people's lives in danger."
Now the drug trade isn't what it was, and Latin America is safer than the US for parking capital, and the style butterflies have moved on, what does everyone there DO for a living?

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Birmingham police received reports of four banners hanging at various points along interstates in the city today that proclaimed "diversity = white genocide" that could be connected to a national organization trying to stage rallies today around the country. The specific wording on the banners shows a likely connection to a group called the White Man March that is trying to organize events around the country today, but none was announced for Birmingham. An event is planned in New York City today by the self-proclaimed "pro-white" group, according to reports. Birmingham police took action this morning after receiving reports about the banners. "We just removed the signs," Birmingham Police Lt. Sean Edwards said in a phone interview this afternoon. Police had received calls starting this morning of banners hanging from various overpass locations on Interstate 59/20 in the downtown area as well as the 12th Avenue overpass on Interstate 65, Edwards said. "We don't want stuff like that. We want to remove it quickly. We don't want to alarm the citizens. We don't welcome that type of mentality and behavior here," Edwards said. Edwards said no individuals or groups have been identified as the parties responsible for the banners in Birmingham today. He noted the connection between the wording on the banner and the White Man March group, but he was not aware of the organization having an active branch in Birmingham. "I'll be false to tell you we don't have members of those types of organizations in our city. They're here. They're very low key, very discreet. This here sounds like it's a movement they're trying to activate," he said. According to the site www.whitemanmarch.com, the group is promoting the display of banners today that state "diversity = white genocide." "This 'diversity' agenda is being directed at white countries (and only at white countries) with various programs to ensure that there are less white people at schools and in the work force, which is unfair and discriminatory, taking away money and opportunities from the White citizens. 'Diversity' is a codeword for White Genocide," according to the organization's website. The group planned "pro-white activity around the world today" in order to "spread information through activism, but also to make a statement that White people are united in their love for their race and in their opposition to its destruction."
Not only are they reporting the same shit over and over and over again with every Tom, Dick, and Harry, they're also starting to do flight simulation with props and everything. I'm awaiting their announcement that they'll be crashing a Boeing 777 to give viewers a sense of what the pilots, crew, and passengers may have experienced. Don Lemon looks like he wants to hang himself having to report this nonsense.
If anyone cares ... While Hollywood is still basking in the Oscars’ golden glow, A-list actress Scarlett Johansson is reportedly glowing in a different way. E! News first reported the “Her” actress is pregnant with her first child, and according to sources for TMZ, Johansson is already roughly five months along. Way to keep that baby bump hidden, ScarJo! Johansson and French journalist fiance-turned-baby daddy Romain Dauriac announced their engagement in September, but aren’t rushing to set a date. “I’m not doing any wedding planning,” she told “Good Morning America” in January. She was previously married to Ryan Reynolds and got divorced in 2011 after three years of wedlock.
I came to work this morning and found a piece of paper upside down on my office chair: YOU NEED TO TREAT ALL YOUR STAFF FAIRLY NOT JUST YOUR FAVORITES Hmmm. I run a department of 10 people, all of whom are overworked (as am I). The work is evenly distributed. I don't socialize with any of them either within or outside the office except for company occasions. And I don't feel like I play favorites; they're all decent employees, but clearly someone thinks differently. I'm at a loss. What would you do, tasteful friends? Ignore it? Have a meeting to see if anyone wants to bring up grievances (I'm open to that). Send a general email saying it's been a tough two months and if anyone wants to talk, let's have coffee? Anonymous note...Right now I feel like someone in "The Long Secret."
Warning: It's somewhat long, but there is a LOT of detail and it's quite well-written. Hope someone can figure it out. One of the commenters claims to know who it is, but doesn't reveal the name.

A great weekend and now snow after midnight. Man, Mother Nature is a bitch this winter. WTF
Okay granted I am not from the south but is it typical for late forties and early fifties men to social friends with 20-30 somethings? Case #1 Thomas Ravenel who is 51 years old, been indicted for selling cocaine and forced to step down as state treasurer now wants to run for congress as a "Libertarian"." Episode two showed a picture of his father with a very large confederate flag draped across the steps of the state capitol. Racist much? Case #2 Whitney Sudler Smith - 41 year old "film maker" who lives with his mother. The rest of the cast seem in the late 20's to early 30's. Thomas seems to think he is quite the stud man about town....given he is handsome and rich he is also racist and vile.
This is a real doozie. It's not even a news story taking place in the USA. It's about a school in Ottawa, Canada.

Wentworth Miller tried to commit suicide multiple times because he couldn't handle keeping his sexual identity a secret. Miller revealed his dark secret at the Human Rights Campaign Dinner in Seattle Saturday night, saying his first suicide attempt was when he was 15. The "Prison Break" star says he downed a bottle of pills at home, and he wasn't crying out for help, because "you only cry for help if there is help to cry for." Wentworth also talked about the torture of working in Hollywood as a closeted actor ... explaining he wanted to be the role model he never had ... "to be the someone else, that no one was to me."

Seriously, this poor woman is a fucking moron, the very textbook definition of buffoon. She's been booted from two previous networks, CNN finally got her off the air at the main network after she proved to be an embarrassment on their early program.. Now, even with her being at their trashy sister network, she's STILL a complete idiot. (Link is to HuffPo)
Matthew McConaughey's Oscar-winning month may have set the stage for a history-making awards-show year. A week after McConaughey claimed the Best Actor statuette for "Dallas Buyers Club," the 43-year-old star is the consensus pick of early-bird Emmy pundits to take Outstanding Lead Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries for HBO's "True Detective." If the buzz holds, McConaughey will be the first Best Actor Oscar-winner to take home an Emmy in the same year. "True Detective," costarring McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as cops on the trail of a serial killer, wrapped its eight-episode inaugural season on Sunday night before a series-high 3.5 million live TV viewers, HBO reported. At the awards-tracking site Gold Derby, three of the four experts weighing in with Emmy picks have McConaughey as the actor to beat in his presumed category ahead of the likes of Harrelson. Like "American Horror Story," "True Detective" is an anthology that is expected to compete as a miniseries rather than a drama series. McConaughey told the Oscar press last week he won't be back for a second round of "True Detective." If McConaughey pulls off the Oscar-Emmy year, he'll be the first male actor to do so. The select bunch includes only actresses: Helen Hunt, Meryl Streep, and Helen Mirren. Liza Minnelli also pulled off the feat — it was half of her EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony); her "Cabaret" director Bob Fosse also scored the double wins.
One day's take.
It's important, and the other thread got closed... so present away, men!
What's her story?
The previous thread "Most annoying NPR voice" reached 600 in May 2013. When it began in May 2010, Eleanor Beardsley got the most slams. Then Zoe Chace was hired by Planet Money. There were some really funny posts about the queen of vocal fry.
Putin takes down one of our beloved DRONES! Oh, the humanity!!!!
Um, "Mark", Becky''s boyfriend, was waaayy to hot for Becky. Shit he was too hot for the 2nd Becky.\ \ I mean what was wrong with Jackie? She was probably just a few years older than Mark and a career girl - cop/truck drivers bring in good money for those kind of people.
Her family got her moved to another facility where they finally started feeding her again through a tube. But they say her body has already started to die. Do they mean decompose? How would you handle this grieving, but misguided family in this situation?
It's always stuck with me. Despite being kind of hot since they were hot, I wondered if two straight guys would ever have such a conversation, walking to work? Would two gay guys for that matter?
The profile in the middle of the psychedelic scene sure is androgynous-looking. Could this mean that Don Draper might sample the homosex in the final season?
I've read rumors elsewhere that he's gay and mentioned this to my boss, who is a lesbian. For some reason she got bent out of shape refusing to entertain the notion that Daniel Craig might be gay. So, IF he is gay, does anyone have some good strong evidence that Daniel Craig is gay that I can present her?
Please take my poll. If you don;t see the one you think is the most pompous listed, vote for "other" and list him/her?
Are they hot together? Is Guy incredibly handsome? Or does he look like a baby dyke? Has Freddie Smith stopped eating out of boredom? Discuss here.....
Why were they such a big deal?
I can't help but wonder if it has something to do with his sexuality. Was his jailmate homophobic? I mean you don't hear Richard Ramirez getting shanked.
Anyone else love this show? I'm on the sexual season. Ray gun is very attractive. Sent from my Google Glass
I really want to get fucked, but it hurt so much. I am thinking of putting in butt plug in the morning and leaving it in all day just to open things up. What say you?
She has such a cute face and quite a bit of talent. I hope she goes far, but since she's not a Halle Berry type, I can't help but worry.
If not, why do chicks starting screaming so soon when a penis is inserted? Why doesn''t the guy start screaming like crazy too through the entire thing like the chick? Not all women can be faking it. The penis and vagine are suppose to be made up of the same material. I would love to get a feel for whatever these women are experiencing getting fucked in the pussy. For guys, it can never feel "that good". Guys get the rush when they cum finally. Not fair.
Analyze and discuss.
Let's continue all things Andy Cohen here.....

I'm retiring and we're moving soon. While I'm still in Manhattan I think it's time to get my Mom's diamond ring appraised again and sell it on consignment. It was last appraised in the early 1980s at $18K. If I recall correctly it's a 1 1/2 carat blue/white with no imperfections. I'm clueless: where do I start and with whom?

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?
[italic] Opposing the minimum wage, overtime pay, even child labor laws, the GOP is trying to make it easier to exploit workers. [/italic[ Silly me: President Obama’s executive order to expand opportunities for overtime pay Thursday seemed like a win-win. Currently, if you make more than $23,000, you can’t necessarily receive overtime; the president’s order would raise that cap, and also make it harder for employers to classify people with almost no supervisory duties as “supervisors” and thus exempt. Where’s the downside? Newly qualified workers currently being forced to work overtime without pay will now get higher wages. Or, if their employer doesn’t want to spring for the overtime pay (traditionally time and a half), they will have to expand their workforce to get the work done. Higher wages and/or more jobs: Sounds good, right? Not to Republicans, of course. The backlash to the president’s overtime-pay expansion just makes clear what we’ve known for a long time: They oppose every attempt by government to reward hard work and protect the rights of workers – unless it applies to the very wealthy. Speaker John Boehner sounded unusually befuddled opposing Obama’s move. “If you don’t have a job, you don’t qualify for overtime. So what do you get out of it? You get nothing,” he told the Washington Post. “The president’s policies are making it difficult for employers to expand employment. And until the president’s policies get out of the way, employers are going to continue to sit on their hands.” The president’s policies are in fact making it harder for employers to exploit their workers. That’s all. As Jared Bernstein told the New York Times. “I think a potential side effect is that you may see more hiring in order to avoid overtime costs, which would be an awfully good thing right about now." Or you’ll see higher wages, which would also be an awfully good thing. One of the major causes of rising income inequality is that back in the 1970s, rising productivity suddenly became detached from rising wages. For decades — since the labor-rights reforms and social welfare advances of the ’30s and ’40s — the two lines climbed in tandem, with higher productivity translating into higher paychecks. The two came apart, in what’s become known as “the great divergence,” at the same time as income inequality began to climb. There are many reasons for the productivity-wage split, including a stagnant minimum wage, declining union membership, and weaker labor rights overall – including less compensated overtime. Republicans no longer accept that it was government intervention in the economy, first in the Progressive era and then, more forcefully, after the Great Depression, that created the greatest economic boom and the biggest middle class in history. The 40-hour work week. The weekend. Vacations. Child labor laws. The minimum wage. Social Security. Health and safety protection. All of these represented government intervention on the side of working people, to balance the playing field with exploitive employers, and to carve out a realm of family and personal life that could be protected from ceaseless labor. Progressive public policy essentially created childhood, as a time when kids who weren’t wealthy might be educated and protected from labor abuse. These became bipartisan values, with some debating around the margins, through Richard Nixon’s administration. But then a pro-business backlash put all of those gains back on the table. Republicans are now trying to repeal the 20th century. “The federal government, in particular, shouldn’t be involved in labor markets in any way, shape or form,” says Jeffrey Miron, economic studies director at the Cato Institute. Cato is a libertarian think tank, but Miron’s once-radical point of view is now the GOP mainstream.
Since the spoiler in the "official thread" states that his spoilers are wanted, can we have a thread that doesn't say what happens in each episode until it has aired? I like all the teams in this All-Stars season. I will hate to see all of them get eliminated. I can't believe Team YouTube just let their taxi go while they were in the middle of no-where. They knew they had blown it and were good sports about it. They must have really been behind because even in the edit, they never crossed paths with Brandon and Rachael.
Will he ever break into television or films? Is Queer As Folk the peak of his career. Looking at imdb, the projects he has can't be paying him much.
I say "stupid" not because I''ve seen it, but the commercials for it make me nauseous with the acappella "dah dah da dah dah dah dahhh" music, tight shots of the cast members looking pensively into the camera or repeating some mega cheesy line, the dark haired woman who seems like she poses for every shot of every scene she''s in.\ \ Seriously, it must be the most douchey show on television if it resembles the commercials in the least.
Is it some kind of primal instinct or are they putting on a show?

Benedict Cumberbatch knows he has a rabid fan base of Tumblr-obsessed fans. When asked whether he was worried that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange might attack his new drama The Fifth Estate, in which he plays the infamous hacker, Cumberbatch kept his cool: “The Cumberitches have got my back,” he told EW. But, as it turns out, the Cumberbitches didn’t have his back this weekend — at least not at the box office. The Fifth Estate bombed in its opening weekend with a truly awful $1.7 million from 1,769 theaters, making it the worst debut for a film opening in at least 1,500 theaters this year. (Sorry, Paranoia!) The film, which cost DreamWorks a reported $26 million to produce, earned tepid reviews from critics and could only manage an anemic $969 location average. Just how bad is that? Well, let’s put this in perspective. Notorious stinker Movie 43 grossed $4.8 million in its opening weekend in January, almost three times as much as The Fifth Estate. Getaway, the ludicrously awful Ethan Hawke/Selena Gomez thriller drove away with $4.5 million in August. Heck, this weekend’s Arnold Schwarznegger/Sylvester Stallone action flick Escape Plan bombed this weekend with $9.8 million — and that’s still almost six times more money than The Fifth Estate made! Luckily, there is a silver lining for Cumberbatch. His other vehicle, 12 Years a Slave, proved powerful in limited release this weekend, drawing $960,000 from just 19 theaters, which yielded a terrific $50,526 per theater average — not to mention boatloads of early Oscar buzz.

He is back, this time for Lucas Entertainment. Last year he said he had a bit of regret going bareback on film. But this year, he has changed his mind saying "I think that’s a complicated conflicting message to send, but at the same time I’ve never been America’s sweetheart. I don’t know where the shock comes from. But in terms of just barebacking, I definitely tell all of my friends to be safe. We definitely don’t bareback in our private life with random people at all. And so it was just for that scenario." He also says about performing for Michael Lucas "Performing for Lucas Entertainment feels like my true debut in gay porn in many ways. I have recorded most of my personal life on camera, so doing porn feels like a natural extension of that exhibitionism.” To see Chris latest BB performance go to link below.

WORCESTER — Attorney General Martha Coakley is supporting a gay couple's legal battle against the Diocese of Worcester after the pair was allegedly denied the right to buy a church-owned mansion in Northbridge. Two Sutton men, James E. Fairbanks and Alain J. Beret, a married gay couple, filed a civil suit in Worcester Superior Court in 2012 against the diocese and its real estate agent after their offer to buy the Oakhurst Conference and Retreat Center, a 44-bedroom mansion in the Whitinsville section of Northbridge, was rejected by the Diocese of Worcester. The lawsuit contends the diocese ended the deal because the men are gay and might hold same-sex weddings on the property. "In this case, we believe that this family was unfairly discriminated against by the Diocese when it refused to sell them property based on their sexual orientation," Ms. Coakley said in a written statement. The diocese has denied the allegations. In court filings, church officials have argued state anti-discrimination laws do not apply to their conduct and cite legal exemptions and other constitutionally protected rights. Ms. Coakley contends the state's anti-discrimination law includes the sale of public and commercial property owned by the diocese. An April 22 hearing has been scheduled. The brief contends that the diocese's religious rights are not burdened by the sale of the property to Mr. Fairbanks and Mr. Beret. In addition, the attorney general contends that Massachusetts' interest in eliminating discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation outweighs any burden on religious rights imposed by applying the anti-discrimination statute in this case. Mr. Fairbanks and Mr. Beret had plans to renovate the aging mansion and turn it into a banquet facility. The mansion would be used to host weddings and other events and be their personal residence. Owned by House of Affirmation Inc., an affiliate of the diocese, the site at 120 Hill St. in Whitinsville was formerly known as the House of Affirmation, a treatment center for pedophile priests that closed in the 1980s. The prospective buyers have been in a relationship for more than 30 years and married since 2004. They made an offer for the property in May 2012. In their lawsuit, the couple said that in June 2012, a day after they made a revised $550,000 offer for Oakhurst and six acres of the 26-acre site, Monsignor Thomas Sullivan sent the following email to the diocesan broker: "I just went down the hall and discussed it with the bishop. Because of the potentiality of gay marriages there, something you shared with us yesterday, we are not interested in going forward with these buyers. I think they're shaky anyway. "So, just tell them that we will not accept their revised plan and the Diocese is making new plans for the property. You find the language." The email was later inadvertently forwarded to Mr. Beret, according to the suit. The couple is seeking unspecified monetary damages for alleged violations of state housing discrimination laws and infliction of emotional distress. Monsignor Sullivan, who oversees the sale of diocesan property, is named as a defendant in the suit, along with the House of Affirmation Inc., Bishop Robert McManus and Eastern Alliance Realty, LLC, which acted as an agent for the diocese in the negotiations. After the lawsuit was filed in September, the lawyer for the diocese in this matter stated that no one ever asked or knew the couple's sexual orientation. "From the diocese point of view, this case is not about discrimination against gay persons. It's simply a failed real estate transaction," James G. Reardon Jr. said in September. "The buyers never came up with sufficient financing. They never signed a purchase and sale agreement. They tried to rework the negotiations for the property, so the deal never went through." Mr. Reardon could not be immediately reached for comment Thursday.

He comes across remarkably self-assured for his age (if also slightly douchey). He has this handsome gymnast buddy from whom he seems inseparable.

It's one of the weirdest things I've ever experienced.it goes for gay men and lesbians with children, too. They really think they have been blessed with superiority over single people because they have kids. They'll deny it if they're not assholes, but they still really believe it, deep down.
I always have, since I was a kid. Loved when the daytime talk shows like "Donahue" and "Geraldo" would have them on. Loved when the "exercise" magazines featured male dance troupes. I almost like men wearing almost nothing than nothing at all. I love finding converted to DVD old stripper videos. Yeah, the mes are greasy and long-haired (80s) and often straight (though I don't always believe that every troupe is sooo straight and there are no gay men. Come on.) Weirdly, nowadays it seems like more and more male dancers have their dancers just in small posing straps with a full back. Makes no difference as it's still hot but anybody know why this is?
I''ve decided they are, primarly because they represent some perfect middle-ground between Caucasians, Africans, Asians, etc.
Do you wear an undershirt underneath your shirt? Or are you bare-chested underneath that shirt? Why do you wear an undershirt underneath your shirt? Or why do you NOT wear an undershirt underneath your shirt? And bare-chested underneath that shirt? Vote below and then discuss.
It's been this was since the psychopathic bitch was convicted, and even more in the last few months. I guess they figure she's getting out in a few days, so they have to play nice to get the first interview.
I know she was not on the level of, say, Davis, Crawford, Garland, or Taylor, but was she considered major A-list back in the day? I can see her limited appeal as the girl-next-door type, but I just don't see najor star quality. Her performances were at least adequate, but she never seemed to stand out in anything she did, always blending in with the furniture. So what was her deal? And please keep the "It Depends" responses to a minimum LOL.
Here, have some more snow.
Someone in another thread referred to their significant other this way. Are gay people still doing this? It's sounds hopelessly dated to my ears, not to mention silly. Calling someone "my Lover" makes it sound like you do nothing but fuck in sun-dappled meadows. Sorry but that does not describe my relationship.
They're trying to raise two million bucks on Kickstarter to get it made.

Queerty Reporting The pair were reportedly dating as early as last July when, according to a source close to the couple who spoke exclusively to Queerty, “they met in AA and were kicked out of the chapter for breaking the no-dating rules.” This was around the same time Jackson shaved his head, got a few interesting tattoos and grew a mustache amid his “mutual” split from Lapka. Speculation that Jackson switched coasts and began dating a younger man in order to “start fresh” began, and today, our source clears up come misconceptions about Jackson’s fiance: Jason Landau is NOT an actor, he’s an instructor with The Landmark Forum, a controversial offshoot of EST that’s been under investigation many, many times by state and fed gov’t for cult like activities and ponzi-scheme-like activity.

Religious Right talk show host Kevin Swanson railed against the Disney film Frozen on Wednesday, accusing Disney of using the movie to turn children gay. Swanson told cohost Steve Vaughn that Satan is using the movie “to indoctrinate my 5-year-old to be a lesbian.” Swanson: Man, how many children are taken into these things and how many Christians are taking their kids off to see the movie Frozen, produced by an organization that is probably one of the most pro-homosexual organizations in the country? You wonder sometimes, I’m not a tinfoil hat conspiratorialist, but you wonder sometimes if maybe there’s something very evil happening here. If I was the Devil, what would I do to really foul up an entire social system and do something really, really, really evil to 5- and 6- and 7-year-olds in Christian families around America? Vaughn: I would make a movie. Swanson: I would buy Disney. If I was the Devil, I would buy Disney in 1984, that’s what I would have done. Vaughn: Then you would start making all these nice little movies that throw little things in there that make sin look enticing, in fact some of the worst of sins, make it look enticing or at least to start to indoctrinate slowly, turn the heat up on the frog in the pan. Swanson: Friends, this is evil, just evil. I wonder if people are thinking: “You know I think this cute little movie is going to indoctrinate my 5-year-old to be a lesbian or treat homosexuality or bestiality in a light sort of way.” I wonder if the average parent going to see Frozen is thinking that way. I wonder if they are just walking in and saying, “Yeah, let’s get my five-year-old and seven-year-old indoctrinated early.” You know they’re not, I think for the most part they’re oblivious. Maybe they do pick up on pieces of it but they just don’t get up and walk out. Swanson also criticized Disney for its opposition to the Boy Scouts of America’s ban on openly gay troop leaders, saying that parents should know that the company, along with public schools, is aiming to have “their children indoctrinated” into “the lifestyle of sodomy.” He added that it would be the “worst nightmare” of parents to have their child “turn into a sodomite.” Swanson: I’m guessing the majority of American parents don’t want their little boys turning into sodomites, at this point. if you were to interview, stick a microphone in front of most parents dropping their kids off at the average K-6 school in Colorado where they’re sporting their GLSEN signs everywhere, but if you just interview them and you ask them: “Is your vision for this little 6-year-old boy, 8-year-old boy, 9-year-old, 10-year-old boy that he turn into a sodomite?” My guess is that 60 to 70 percent of them would say, “that would be my worst nightmare.” Of course that changes over time and it does change, everything is slipping here. You feel it slipping, can’t you? You feel the whole sexual thing slipping down and it’s affecting boys. I think the position of parents with 18- to 22-year-old boys tends to change, especially as they’re being indoctrinated by Disney and others. American society I think is going to fracture on this one. The Boy Scouts are the fault line, you got six percent leaving, you got Disney pulling funding. This is fracturing our society and I can see how it might, I can see how some parents might be very strong, they don’t want their children indoctrinated in any way into the lifestyle of sodomy. Vaughn: And if you fall into that camp, you got to get them out of Sodom, you got to bring them home.
Republican Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona announced Wednesday she will not run for reelection. "There does come a time to pass the torch of leadership," she said at a school in Glendale. "After completing this term in office, I will be doing just that." Her announcement comes amid questions about whether she could legally seek another four years in office. As Arizona secretary of state in 2009, Brewer automatically succeeded Janet Napolitano as governor when the Democrat became President Barack Obama's homeland security secretary. Arizona is one of a few states without a lieutenant governor. Brewer sought and won a full term in 2010 and hadn't ruled out trying again. But Arizona law dictates that a governor can't run for more than two consecutive terms, and a partial term is counted as a full term. In other words, Brewer's time in office before she was elected in 2010 would count as a full four-year term. However, Joseph Kanefield, Brewer's former general counsel, argued in a 2012 opinion piece for the Arizona Republic that the governor could still legally run for another term because the state's law was "intended to apply only to an elected or appointed partial term rather than one in which a governor inherits the office by constitutional succession," as in Brewer's case with Napolitano in 2009. Though she's not running for reelection, Brewer vowed to "work until my final hours, completing the people's business." "Both my pen and my veto stamp have plenty of ink," she said. The governor made headlines last month when she vetoed a bill that passed the Republican-controlled state legislature and would have allowed businesses that asserted their religious beliefs the right to deny service to gay and lesbian customers. Perhaps her most famous move in office was the 2010 signing of a law that requires immigrants to carry their alien registration documents at all times and requires police to question people if there is reason to suspect that they're in the United States illegally. Critics fiercely fought the law and the case made its way to the Supreme Court. While the high court in 2012 struck down key parts of the Arizona statute, the justices let stand the controversial provision allowing police to check a person's immigration status wile enforcing other laws. The immigration law helped cement Brewer’s reputation on the national level as a conservative firebrand. The issue also became a point of contention between the Arizona governor and President Barack Obama. At one point in 2012, the two had a now-famous confrontational encounter when Brewer greeted Obama on the tarmac at an airport during his visit to the state. At her announcement Wednesday, Brewer pledged to “remain a proud cheerleader and champion" for Arizona. "Serving as governor has been the privilege and pleasure of my life," she said. "It's been a challenge of the most rewarding kind. Standing before you today is truly bittersweet." A number of Republicans, including Secretary of State Ken Bennett, state Treasurer Doug Ducey, and Mesa Mayor Scott Smith, had already announced bids for the GOP gubernatorial nomination well before Brewer's Wednesday announcement.
It looks like the other thread is closed so I thought I would start up another on. I think this place can be hot sometimes (especially at lunchtime). They have a downstairs area that you can do whatever you want and I have been there and had fun with some super hot dudes. Looking to know if there are any other times when this place (xpressions on 53rd) is crowded - weekends? late night?
After someone hijacked that other thread, now you have your very own venue. Go ahead, ask the psychics questions. Anyone who is psychic is free to respond. Let the fun begin.

Wesley Warren, the star of the TLC special “The Man With the 132 Lb Scrotum,” died Friday after suffering a heart attack, TheWrap confirmed. He was 49. The special, which aired last August, chronicled Las Vegas resident Warren's struggle with the medical condition scrotal lymphedema, which caused his scrotum to swell. The condition made it difficult to perform simple tasks such as walking, preparing meals and going to the restroom. “TLC is saddened to hear about the sudden loss of Wesley,” the network told TheWrap in a statement. “He was a lovely man who bravely told his story, and we share our condolences with his family and friends.” The special, which was produced by Firecracker Films and distributed by Zodiak Rights for TLC, chronicled Warren's efforts to find appropriate medical care and raise funds for surgery to alleviate his condition.

Nick D’Agosto and Mixology‘s Andrew Santino have been cast as leads alongside Greta Gerwig, Drew Tarver and Krysta Rodriguez in CBS’ comedy pilot How I Met Your Dad, rounding out the How I Met Your Mother spinoff’s primary cast. In the vein of the original series, HIMYD tells the story from a female point of view, that of Sally (Gerwig), and revolves around a new group of friends in New York. D’Agosto, repped by UTA, Emerald Talent and SMGSB, will play Frank, the head of IT for Juliet’s (Rodriguez) fashion blog who falls for Sally. Santino will play Danny, Sally’s older brother, a perfect but uptight overachieving lawyer. Santino is billed as a guest star in the pilot as his casting is in second position to ABC’s midseason comedy Mixology, which has been soft in its first couple of airings. The pilot, from 20th TV, was written by Emily Spivey and HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and will be directed by Pam Fryman.

The last remaining lesbian bar in West Hollywood is about to close. The Palms Bar, the oldest continually-running lesbian bar in Southern California, will close Sunday, June 9 after the annual gay pride parade, Wehoville reports. Open since the 1960s, the Palms has hosted celebrities including Jim Morrison, Tom Waits, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi and Melissa Etheridge, the LA Weekly reports. West Hollywood has long been a gay mecca, with about 40 percent of its 35,000 residents identifying as gay, but only three percent identify as lesbians, the Los Angeles Times reports. Gay males tend to earn more than lesbians and can afford upscale urban areas like West Hollywood, while lesbians prefer to live in more kid-friendly neighborhoods, like Silver Lake and Long Beach, notes the Times. To attract more lesbian residents, WeHo officials plan to open what they call a "lesbian social space" on Robertson Boulevard, according the Times. In April, The Palms posted on Facebook that it would close "for no other reason than the new property owners have decided to redevelop the property.” It added that the bar's owners are in the process of looking for a new location to re-open. As a memorandum to what the bar has meant to the lesbian community over the years, The Palms posted on Facebook: We are grateful to those who have become our friends, our family, lovers, confidants and even our ex's. We think of the happiness through 46 plus years that the Palms has brought to people, the laughter and love. We will remember those we have lost. Even though we are saddened by this closure, we bear in mind that buildings are made from stone and wood and the true happiness and joy come from the lives of the people inside.
I've lived in the same large studio in the East Village for 20 years. It's rent-controlled, cheap ($950) and thus immensely hard to leave. But I need a change and would love more space. I really like this area and could afford $1,200-$1,500 a month on a rental or a mortgage. Any advice appreciated.
Now that he's going to do a television, it seems to me impossible that even he could ever say to himself that coming out would damage his career. There are plenty of out younger men on TV whose careers have not suffered (Sean Hayes, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, NPH, Matt Bomer). And he's going to be 53 in just a few weeks. Surely he cannot be so deluded as to think that at this age his coming out would cut him out of young heterosexual heartthrob roles.
It just started 8 minutes into it and I switched to Anderson. They let the guy who rendered "Under The Rainbow" unrecognizable through to the next phase? I'm sick of that shit being rewarded. Shame on you, Harry Connick Jr. I still want Keith Urban lying in bed waiting for me to come home, though. I'll probably be back during Hollywood Week.
This time with actual poll options! If you don't see the one you think is the most pompous listed, vote for "other" and list him/her?
This thread replaces the earlier one where the links did not work for some people. I have switched the photos to a different hosting site. Oh, and to answer another question, the reason I started a separate thread is because these are all Israeli men - so I thought they could have their own special thread separate from the other men & soldiers etc. #1 - Naked Israeli ass in front of a gorgeous lake
I had to work last night and forgot to DVR the telecast, so how did Liza, Lorna & Li'l Joe do? Did they sing a song? Clap from the audience? Fill me in.
I love them, hot and slutty!
What says you? Europe is suppose to be more progressive on social issues. Putting a cap on hate speech is one of the many things they tout as evidence of their country's progressive nature. Just curious. Historically the US has always been behind when it comes to social issues.
The purpose of this thread is to make this one of the top Google hits for anyone searching for "Is Aaron Schock Gay" or "Aaron Schock Gay". The other purpose of this thread is to let anyone searching for information that Aaron Schock is gay know that he is INDEED gay, he has had more cocks pass through him than through the gloryhole onboard the USS Intrepid, and is a traitor to BOTH the gay community whose semen he can't get enough of AND to the Conservative Christian community that he claims to represent. Feel free to trash this shameless cockgobbler here.
Black comedy adapted from the memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman, about a nice girl who ended up serving a prison sentence for money laundering. Stars Taylor Schilling from those awful Atlas Shrugged movies as Piper, Kate Mulgrew as a tough Russian inmate, Natasha Lyonne, playing against type as a lesbian junkie, That 70s Show's Laura Prepon as Piper's ex-girlfriend who introduced her to a life of crime, and Jason Biggs as Piper's loyal fiancé, waiting for her to get out. At least give it a shot. It had some nice pitch-black comedy moments, and Mulgrew and Lyonne are both great.

Scott, you know the fact that you have to move to another state means you are a super pussy fag, right? Pathetic. Go back to selling your "stuff" while you can. Your shelf life is already over. It will just be a while before, like Cheryl, your pussy stinks.
I have reason to believe that the hollow earth theory is correct. What have you heard? Serious feedback only please.
I love that he is schooling the Right on science. But he really needs to ditch the bow ties. Science has enough of a problem with Hollywood stereotypes, like Doc in Back to the Future. If science is going to gain acceptance in flyover country, we're not going to get there with bow ties.
Thank God for the tips, or else whoring would not be worth it. Everyone treats you like you're a lowly barkeep. 1)Just because I fuck you doesn't mean I'm going to serve you alcohol without a proper ID. 2) Just because I fuck you doesn't mean I'm going to keep you constantly supplied with peanuts or pretzels or other salty snacks. 3) Just because I fuck you doesn't mean that I'm going to put little paper umbrellas in your glass. 4) Just because I fuck you doesn't mean I'm going to salt the rim of your glass. 5) Just because I fuck you doesn't mean I can remember all the ingredients in complicated obscure drinks like a Betsy Ross or a Golden Cadillac. Thanks!!
I wonder, will the political landscape remain this toxic from now on? Or, hopefully, is it a case where the Democrats (most) want the first black President to succeed at any cost whereas the Republicans (most) want just the opposite, at any cost?
Jimmy Kimmel is catching up to Fallon in the ratings. Where is Jay when we need him? "Speaking of Fallon, last night’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon drew a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 with a total viewership of 4.456 million. That’s down 17% in both categories from the show’s February 26 results. While Fallon was down to his lowest number since taking over The Tonight Show, the other Jimmy was up strong and closing the 11:35 PM gap. With a much stronger Thursday primetime as a near lead-in and Scandal’s Kerry Washington as his main guest, Jimmy Kimmel Live got a 1.0 rating in the demo and an audience of 3.555 million. That’s a 100% leap up among the 18-49s from the night before for Kimmel and a 44% rise in viewership from the 2.456 million viewers of his February 26 show. Last night’s JKL was actually the show’s second most watched episode ever after the 3.642 million who watched the January 24, 2013 “Matt Damon Takeover” show. CBS’s David Letterman had a 0.5 rating with 2.710 million viewers, a slight upturn from the night before. Still the fourth show of the second week of Fallon’s new gig equaled the 1.4 rating that Conan O’Brien got on the fourth night of his second Tonight Show week on June 11, 2009. While the demo rating was on par, like the night before Fallon bested O’Brien’s comparable night’s 3.565 million viewers. Like in metered-market results, Fallon was ahead of the 1.14 rating and 4.066 million viewers that Jay Leno got on the comparable night of his Tonight Show return in 2010.)"

Such a short guy, too. Wasn't that a time?
Yes, you read that correctly. For a segment, Matt, Savannah, Natalie, Al, Tamron, Carson, Willie, Hoda and Kathie Lee appeared on nationwide high-def TV without makeup. Photos:
What a bossy megalomaniac. Does anyone else think the bitch is a little too full of herself? Would love to see her and King Aspie Zuck trying to outdo each other in a battle of the super egos.
I caught her latest(?) movie last night and was distracted by her face. The movie was actually kind of entertaining but WTF is it with her face? I figured out that her forehead is botoxed to hell and back, it didn''t move the entire movie making her lower face compensate and she horrible crows feet around her eyes. Her lips look worse as she gets older and I can only hope she didn''t plump them up and her skin looks as if it was scrubbed with a wire brush and then they tried to cover it up. Even makeup can''t hide the weird texture. She also has a bloated look to her cheeks. Are there any DL cosmetic surgery buffs out there who can explain this oddity of nature?
Why he could be gay/bi: 1. He hangs with the "gay posse" Colton Haynes, Matthew Morrison, JC Chasez, Chace Crawford, Penn Badgely, etc. 2. He LOVES Les Mis 3. There've been rumors about him and Penn Badgely, him and Colton Haynes, etc. 4. Not linked with any girls recently. Why he could be straight: 1. He might hang with the "gay posse" simply because they all have the same manager? 2. There's just not much evidence on his Twitter that he's into guys or into gay interested, as opposed to Jonathan Bennett, who follows EVERY hot guy on Twitter. 3. He had a fucking BEARD recently (the hairy kind, not the female kind). I don't know any gay guys that grow facial hair! How come Shawn Pyfrom hasn't been acting lately? What has he been up to?

[quote]I understand that it is advisable, nay, vital that your knees never touch each other. If you have managed to obtain a seat on the subway, somehow persevering against the swarms of greedy, seat-grubbing women of the pregnant and elderly varieties, then I know how important it is that your knees be as far apart as possible. I am sure that there are numerous studies that demonstrate the connection between touching your knees together and an elevated risk of stroke, heart disease, testicular cancer, and feminism.

From his soon-to-published diaries: “She is a monster of staggering charmlessness and monumental lack of humour …. I am coldly sarcastic with her to the point of outright contempt but she hears only what she wants to hear …. She is a tired old woman and lives entirely on that weekly show which she has been doing and successfully doing for 19 years. Nineteen solid years of double-takes and pratfalls and desperate upstaging and cutting out other people’s laughs if she can, nervously watching the ‘ratings’ as she does so … I loathe her today but now I also pity her. I make a point of never seeing her again …. Milady Ball can thank her lucky stars that I am not drinking. There is a chance that if I had I might have killed her. Jack Benny, the most amiable man in the world, and one of the truly great comedians of our time, says that in 4 days she reduced his life expectancy by 10 years.”

What do you think about JLo's shitty new song? Watch and listen:
Speaking to Spanish-language media health care town hall meeting last week, President Obama dismissed concerns from a low-income man that the monthly premiums for the cheapest plans were too expensive for his family to afford. The president said the man should "prioritize health care" and cut spending on things like cable, cell phone, and other things to afford insurance. The host of the town hall read the following to the president: This question here comes from a gentleman who says that, yes, he wanted Obamacare for a family of three. He says, "I make about $36,000 per year. The minimum amount is $350 per month. I think that's too much for me." That's a question from this gentleman here. Who then responded, naturally, by blaming the consumer instead of the unaffordability of the "Affordable" Care Act plans. I guess what I would say, if you looked at that person's budget, and you looked at their cable bill, their cell phone bill, other things that they're spending on, it may turn out that it's just they haven't prioritized health care because right now everybody is healthy. I don't think it's likely that someone who makes around $36,000 a year is subscribed to premium cable channels and expensive cell phone coverage. Unlike the current health insurance market, affordable alternatives to expensive plans for cell phones exist. At Walmart, a consumer can purchase home telephone service for $15 a month, or could buy unlimited cell phone service for six months for only $249.99. That breaks down to about $41.50 a month for cell phone (and, by virtue of a smartphone, which can be purchased for around $50) and internet service. That's far less expensive than over $300 a month for health insurance, plus the plans with lower premiums carry comparatively high deductibles. Even if the premiums were subsidized via some sort of credit, it's still asking quite a lot of a person to pay the equivalent of a seventh of their income before the plan even kicks in. Also: the man asking the question is healthy. This is just another example of President Obama being condescending and out of touch.
Does anybody know what''s going on with Scott Evans? I''m a huge fan and miss seeing him on my TV since he departed the Llanview program. He had a guest spot in an episode of Rubicon in September, but that''s it. In an August interview, he said he was filming a movie on Cape Cod called Dead Reckoning, but there''s no listing for it on IMDb. His twitter page is no longer. I miss him!
Thanks to widespread public ridicule, Hollywood producers & directors finally got the message and stop repeating such rom-com clichés as montages of retail therapy for the heroine, or scenes where she lipsyncs while holding a hairbrush/spatula/wire whisk as a microphone. But there are some things they still keep repeating in films I never want to see again--such as: *in ghost movies: ghosts with stringy black hair crawling along the shadowy floor, walls, or ceiling *in action films: Mexican standoffs *in biopics of famous singers: the singer's success is shown by a montage of his or her placements on the Billboard charts intercut with scenes of him or her singing in different venues What else?
A 13-year-old dachshund left outside an animal shelter with a note asking that he be put to sleep because his elderly owners could no longer afford to care for him was expected to be reunited with the couple soon. The dog, named “Harley” by rescuers, was found tied to a basket outside the Baldwin Park Animal Shelter on March 6, according to Toby Wisneski, CEO and founder of Leave No Paws Behind. Attached to Harley was a note explaining that he had gotten sick, was vomiting and had bloody stools. “We are both seniors, sick with no money. We cannot pay for vet bills, or to put him to sleep. He has never been away from us in all those years, he cannot function without us, please put him to sleep,” stated the note, which ended without identifying the owners. Wisneski received a call from the shelter and took the dog in knowing if she didn’t he would be put to sleep. After receiving medical care at the East Valley Veterinary Clinic, doctor’s told Wisneski that Harley was going to be OK and had a couple of years left in him. Determined to reunite Harley with his owners, Wisneski tracked down the couple and found out Harley’s real name is Otto Wolfgang Maximus. “We just are living week to week,” one of the owners, who wished to remain anonymous, said in a phone interview. “We can’t even go to the hospital to get our treatment.” The couple was informed that Leave No Paws Behind — described on their Facebook page as a nonprofit, foster-based rescue — would cover Otto’s healthcare and food costs for the rest of his life. “We thought he was dead, but he lives,” said the owner on the phone. “He’s being well taken care of and, boy, we’re just so extremely grateful.” The couple was expected to be reunited with Otto when they return to the area on March 28.
Who was she before Saturday Night Fever and what happened to her afterwards? She was a bad actress and not that attractive. I never could figure out why Tony was so hot after her.

Both shows parodies the soap opera jandra in the 1970s, with Soap running from 1977 on a major network (ABC) and Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman from 1976 to 1977 in syndication. However, between the two, Soap seems to have more a following and nostalgia about it. It it because it aired on a network? Because the humor was more broad? Or was it because it was simply better?

NSA whistle blower Russ Tice details NSA actions against politicians, cabinet members, and civil rights groups: "The abuse is rampant and everyone is pretending that it's never happened, and it couldn't happen. ... I know [there was abuse] because I had my hands on the papers for these sorts of things: They went after high-ranking military officers; they went after members of congress — Senate and the House — especially on the intelligence committees and the armed services committees, lawyers, law firms, judges, State Department officials, part of the White House, multinational companies, financial firms, NGOs, civil rights groups ..."
And you thought managing a smartphone and an inbox was exhausting. 45-year-old Chris Dancy is known as the most connected man in the world. He has between 300 and 700 systems running at any given time, systems that capture real-time data about his life. His wrists are covered with a variety of wearable technology, including the fitness wristband tracker Fitbit and the Pebble smartwatch. He weighs himself on the Aria Wi-Fi scale, uses smartphone controlled Hue lighting at home and sleeps on a Beddit mattress cover to track his sleep. Even Dancy's dogs are tracked via Tagg, which logs their daily activities. Although this type of lifestyle would be tiring to many — with numbers running his day — Dancy calls it motivating. "I started five years ago when I noticed my doctor was having a hard time keeping up with my health records," Dancy told Mashable. "Around the same time, I worried that the work I did on the Internet could be lost if [there's] a service shutdown. In an effort to collect this information, I started looking for ways I could gather data when I didn't have time to write things down."
After reading the Fosse biography I gave him for Christmas, my husband decided we had to watch all the movies. First up was Damn Yankees, which was fun, but now we're watching Sweet Charity, we're only half an hour in, and I want to fucking kill myself.
I get why trust in the government is declining in America, but I don't get why trust between people is declining still? We are safer from violent crime than anytime since the early 70's and late 60's, so why is it that we are not trusting more? The good news is that we are still more trusting than other countries, including many western european ones. Why do you think trust is declining?
The Rancid Honeytrap is taking Glenn on with a vengeance and Glenn is having any of it. I love this blogger, who is as he says: "Bilious, herbivorous, queer small a anarchist." [quote]Note how childish, dumb and technically inept it is. Also how homophobic. Then wonder what kind of person attracts fans such as these and even, on occasion, incites them. This incident is no anomaly. They say a picture speaks a thousand words, and this nicely encapsulates what The Friends of Glenn Greenwald have been saying to me for six months now. It rarely gets better. [quote]As anyone who has ever been insufficiently deferential to Glenn Greenwald in public knows, the alleged civil libertarian/savior of journalism cultivates and periodically incites a pack of internet brownshirts who enforce discipline on his behalf. Most of the commentary on this has come from Greenwald’s right, because until recently that’s where most of his acrimony was directed. But as his status increases and his affiliations change, the rare lefties calling him to account are getting a taste of this as well. Recently British independent journalist Jonathan Cook capitulated completely on some very tepid criticism he had offered only days before, after a swarming by Glenn’s fans and a self-serving lecture by Greenwald himself. [quote]I have become something of an expert on Greenwald’s frothy minions since he first sicced them on me six months ago via this fallacious rant on my blog, in which he deliberately mischaracterized practically every point I had made and obliquely suggested that I kill myself. Since writing the post that sent Greenwald into a tizzy, I have been the target of routine trolling on Twitter, usually in the form of extremely childish verbal abuse, but also in the form of lengthy, angry interrogations, akin to visits from Jehovah’s Witnesses vexed by my stubborn unwillingness to see the light. The research wing trawls through old tweets and blog posts looking for things that can be damningly quoted out of context. I am the subject of six Twitter ‘parody’ accounts, at least one of which simply mixes real tweets with fake for the sole purpose of mischaracterizing me. Glenn himself even cracks wise with this Tarzie parody — which of course endorses its smeary intent — though since vomiting on my blog six months ago, he never replies to me directly.
Great skits: *Taram Killan as Andy Cohen on WWHL (WHY have they never repeated this?) *All the women singing like the Pussycat Dools, as they did with the "Twin Bed" song (they could have them do more songs like Justin and Andy Samberg used to do with the Bell Biv Devoe parody) *Taran Killam doing Matthew McConaughey Horrible skits they keep repeating: *Kate McKinnon as Ellen DeGeneres (Kate is usually great but she just can't do a good Ellen imitation--she always makes her sound Australian instead of Southern) *Any repeated skit featuring the awesomely dull Kenan Thompson *Nasim Predad doing the little girls' TV show

We've got this already here in England. I'm liking it. I'm wondering if people here (on DL) will be watching. It is on HBO and would have thought it would attract some 'gay attention'. Anyway, I'll post a link to the ONE MINUTE trailer (surely that's not too much even for DL)..so you can have a look and cast your vote in advance. I'm going to post the link to the British trailer rather than the HBO one because it's better. I'm not a troll, I just like the show and for once we've seen something in England before you have over there (by a few weeks)

[italic]Hi, everyone! Please spread the word that I'm here and I will start taking fan questions. Hollywood stories are the best stories.[/italic] Fire away!
I find her nearly unwatchable. I hate, hate, HATE her appearance -- the oogly-googly eyes, the strong jaw, the frumpy style of dress are just the beginning. I think her character is such a stereotypical iteration of what a 1960s feminist is "supposed" to be -- sad since the other characters are so well-crafted. Not sure if it's the fault of the writing or the acting, but I find Peggy both ugly *and* wholly predictable. She's like a boxier Mary Tyler Moore, without the nice hair or the charisma.
Is he on the D-list? A b-list? What the hell happened to his career?

A co-worker is willing to sell it to me for relatively cheap. But here's the thing, I don't make a ton of money so when my little $3,000 2001 Corolla went out of commission, I started looking for used Hondas in the $11k - $12k range--hoping to pay no more than $300 a month. But when the Audi came up, I just wasn't sure if I'd be passing up a good deal on a fairly nice car. The 2007 Audi A4 has good reviews, pretty good gas mileage for its size (I do mostly highway miles anyway), and a nice, spacious interior. But it also requires premium gas and will most likely increase my insurance. Advice? Should I forget the cheap luxury and just get a 2010 Honda Civic?

It's on Netflix right now. Have you seen it? What do you think?
I never watched "Lost," but the fans were intense. Fortunately they've stayed below the radar so far thank god. My own theory, either an errant missile or a meteorite punctured the airframe, rendering everyone unconscious, then brain dead, in a matter of 1-2 minutes. From there it was just a Payne Stewart out into the Indian Ocean and 15,000 feet down.
I've read through some threads about her, and while there is vitriol in spades, there isn't much rationale for the hatred. She's not a loudmouth, arrogant idiot like Goopy. She isn't a spectacular fuck-up getting free passes like LiLo. She's not a high-riding diva bitch like Jennfer "there'd better be lillies in my toilet" Lopez. And she's not an empty-eyed, anorexic savior figure like A Jolie, rescuing children of different colors from poverty (but only the cute ones). She's a stoner who does comedies, and she's pretty funny. Why the hate? What has she said or done to provoke DL's collective ire? I like her.

I've always hated this movie, but I hadn't seen it in a long time. It was on cable the other night, so I checked it out. My God, it was worse than I remembered. Keanu Reeves' bad accent is legendary, but there is so much more that is awful about this film. Anthony Hopkins gives one of the worst performances of his career as Van Helsing. Gary Oldman waltzes through this thing as if he just knows he's going to win an Oscar (ha!). Most of the dialogue is just embarrassingly bad. And what the fuck was up with those 2 big hair buns on either side of Oldman's head as the older version of Dracula?? In silhouette he looked just like Mickey Mouse. The whole thing is pure camp, but not even remotely in a good way. This is truly one of the worst films ever made.
The gossip continues on.
Matt Bomer for a young Huguette!
I was at the gym today and "Another One Bites the Dust" and We Will Rock You" played back to back. I'm 28, so I had no idea that "Queen" did both songs (along with "We Are the Champions") with Freddie Mercury as the lead until a quick wiki search. So my question is: How big was "Queen" here in the states and was it well-known that Mercury was gay? BTW, what a voice.
US: Heineken joins boycott of NYC St Patrick’s parade over ban on gay groups 14th March 2014, 9:42 PM; Nick Duffy Beer-maker Heineken has dropped its sponsorship of New York’s St Patrick’s Day parade, after controversy surrounding the parade’s ban on gay groups and families. The parades in both New York and Boston face boycotts, including from the cities’ respective mayors, as organisers of both parades continue to ban gay people from marching. Earlier today the Boston Beer Company, the makers of Samuel Adams beer, dropped their sponsorship of the Boston parade. Heineken told GLAAD that they have pulled their sponsorship of the parade, which is estimated to attract over a million spectators annually, saying: ”We believe in equality for all. We are no longer a sponsor of Monday’s parade.” However, GLAAD has criticized car manufacturer Ford, who have confirmed they will continue to sponsor the parade despite the controversy. A statement from Ford said: “No one person, group or event reflects Ford’s views on every issue. “Ford is involved in a wide range of events and organizations in communities across the country and around the world, including long-standing participation in this parade. “What we can tell you is that Ford is proud of its inclusive policies. Every member of the Ford team is valued, and we provide employee benefits regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation.”
I see this a lot. They see a photo of a guy flaccid and they automatically assume that he suffers from tinymeat. I expect this from women who may not fully understand the concept of the male anatomy, but gay men are suppose to be experts when it comes to cock.

Karma’s a bitch. Last month, The Bachelor’s Juan Pablo Galavis made headlines when he called gay people “perverted” in an interview with TV Page. (He later claimed he was quoted out of context.) Now, Radar Online is reporting it has a full frontal nudie pic of the 32-year-old reality star. The dirty picture was allegedly sent via text message to Juan Pablo’s new lady love. Because nothing says “I love you” like a photograph of one’s genitalia. “The reality TV contestant is fully nude in the photo with an erect penis,” Radar Online reports, “and it has been verified that it came from a cell phone registered to the woman that the 32-year-old reportedly chooses as his final rose recipient.” It is believed the nameless woman is the one responsible for leaking the photo. Sounds like a match made it Heaven. We’re sure Juan Pablo’s legal team is doing everything possible to prevent the photos from being made public. But we know how these things go. If there’s a photo out there, it’s only a matter of time before it makes its way to the internet. See you soon, Juan Pablo!
Or are they titillated by this fascinating new topic coming at them? The media has seized upon us as one of the last provocative, hot button issues. Everyday it's 'gay athletes', 'gay marriage', 'gay adoption'. I have to admit, I'm a little saturated on the issue myself (though I'm old enough to find it amusing, because when I was growing up it was a taboo subject everywhere... that is, until AIDS).
Tennessee lawmakers on Thursday passed a measure that allows teachers to wish their students "Merry Christmas" and "Happy Hanukkah" and display scenes and symbols of winter celebrations without fear of legal action. The state House of Representatives approved the legislation with a 84-4 vote. The state Senate, which passed an earlier version of the bill in February, is expected to take the legislation up next week. "I'm a real proponent of freedom of religion, but not a proponent of freedom from religion," said the bill's sponsor state Representative Andy Holt, a Republican from Dresden, who wore a Christmas-themed tie when the bill passed. The bill would seek to provide a legal basis to protect teachers from lawsuits when they wish students "Merry Christmas" and "Happy Hanukkah." Teachers would also be allowed to teach about religious holidays in the classroom under the bill, which supporters say upholds the religious and free speech rights of educators. The bill also allows schools to display scenes or symbols associated with religious winter holidays, such as a menorah or a Christmas tree, if it is accompanied by a symbol or display of another religion or a secular scene or symbol. The bill has been dubbed the "Merry Christmas" measure in media reports. The Senate will consider a slightly amended House version of the bill it passed on February 24, with Holt adding language that said holiday greetings would not be limited to Christmas and Hanukkah but to other types of occasions as well. "We are just trying to make sure that nobody is to be excluded in this legislation. It doesn't preclude any other traditional winter celebrations," Holt said. If the Senate passes the bill, it goes to the desk of Republican Governor Bill Haslam for his signature.
So, are ALL the editors at the entertainment mags prissy middle aged gay men?
After its support of the South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade led one Boston restaurant to boycott its brew, the Boston Beer Company – which manufactures Sam Adams – has pulled its sponsorship from Sunday's parade. Club Café, in the South End, had announced it would not serve the company's beer because of the ongoing controversy over the exclusion of openly gay individuals from marching in the parade. Boston Beer Company said that it is disappointed that an agreement could not be reached between the gay rights advocacy group MassEquality and parade organizers that would have allowed a group of gay veterans to march, despite pressure from Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Rep. Stephen Lynch. "We share these sentiments with Mayor Walsh, Congressman Lynch and others and therefore we will not participate in this year's parade," the Boston Beer Company said in a statement. "We were hopeful an agreement could be reached to allow everyone, regardless of orientation, to participate in this parade. However, given the current status of the negotiations, this may not be possible," the statement read. A 1995 U.S. Supreme Court decision ruled that the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council could include or exclude whichever groups it wanted. "As a result of this (decision) we are again proud to serve Sam Adams and Boston Beer Company Products," Club Café said in a statement on its Facebook page. The parade organizers' phone was not answered. The parade, one of the largest St. Patrick's Day parades in the nation, draws as many as 1 million spectators to South Boston

At a press conference held Thursday to announce their solidarity in opposing Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of the four Republican candidates running against the incumbent senator referred to Graham as “ambiguously gay,” according to The State. The news conference, held to announce a pledge between the challengers to support whomever ended up in a runoff with Graham, took an awkward turn when candidate Dave Feliciano stepped to the podium and addressed the issue of Graham’s sexuality. “It’s about time that South Carolina (says), ‘Hey, we’re tired of the ambiguously gay senator from South Carolina, ” Feliciano said. “We’re ready for a new leader to merge the Republican Party. We’re done with this. This is what it’s about, all of us coming together and saying, one way or the other, one of us is going to be on that ballot in November’.” Questions about Graham’s sexuality have arisen previously but the senator has dismissed them. Before speaking, Feliciano, a former police officer from Spartanburg with no previous political experience, signed a pledge with state Sen. Lee Bright, businessman Richard Cash, and attorney Bill Connor promising to endorse whichever candidate advanced to face Graham. The pledge read: “We, the undersigned genuine conservative Republicans, agree to endorse whichever one of our fellow signers advances to the run-off election against incumbent Senator Lindsey Graham following the South Carolina Republican primary election for the U.S. Senate on the 10th of June 2014.” After the event, attorney Connor disavowed Feliciano’s comments as a personal attack and said that each candidate’s comments were their own. Stating that he believes in free speech, Cash added, “but I also believe in being civil and respectful. Mr. Feliciano’s comments were inappropriate and I disavow any association with them.” However, both Cash and Connor said they still would honor the agreement, which they signed. There are six GOP candidates who have announced primary challenges to Graham. The other two, Columbia pastor Det Bowers and PR executive Nancy Mace, did not attend the news conference.
He had no-one and came to us for support. There is some kind of kindness on DL after all. It's so nice to see. I love Robin. Please help him. (I'm just some Aussie guy where everything is free.)

Four different forms of the word 'cunt' have been added to the Oxford English Dictionary, and they're all spectacular. This week, the OED opened its doors (which look like enormous old timey cartoon books from the forgotten animated classic The Pagemaster) to nine hundred new entries and subentries, all of which which are helpfully listed on the linguistic giant's public website. They're not all new and they're definitely not all common, but the OED's job isn't to just catalog the common. As Time explains, That might sound like a lot, but one has to keep in mind that the dictionary covers everything, not just words average people use in daily conversation. Among the new entries, for example, are drool-inducing adjectives like ethnopharmacologic and now-extinct creatures like the scimitar-horned oryx. (We'll pour one out for you, Ory.) As with other "hey check out these new words!"/"those crazy kids with their iPods and their slangs!" lists, this one contains several items that make ya go "hm." Like beatboxer, bestie, chugging (can butt-chugging be far behind?), death spiral, do-over, exfoliator, sciency, and whackadoodle, along with other complicated-sounding latin root hybrids that probably mean exactly the thing some frustrated academic somewhere has wanted to say for years. But the crown jewels in the new additions (and the words I'm most likely to use in my day-to-day life) are the Four Cunts — cunty, cuntish, cunted, and cunting. "Cunty" is a word with which uses a naughty word to mean "highly objectionable or unpleasant." "Cuntish" is a word that can be used to describe an "objectionable person or behavior." "Cunted" is slang for being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. And "cunting," like its cousins "fucking" or "motherfucking" is an intensifier that means "very much." I'm cunting delighted.
More than 10 years ago, I used to work for a company I'll call ACME. My manager was "Tracy". Tracy was promoted while I was working there, and the next manager and I didn't get along so well. I left about a year later. I found Tracy on linkedin 2 years ago, still working at ACME in a senior position; I sent her an invitation and we had a brief but pleasant exchange. Last year, I applied for a position at ACME and, without saying a word to Tracy, was invited for an interview with "Randy". I emailed Tracy and asked if she knew Randy and if she had any advice for me. When she replied she knew Randy and he was very nice, I hoped she would contact Randy and put in a positive word on my behalf. Instead she offered me generic interview advice, with no 'insider' information or lead. I did not progress to the second interview; Randy told me there were other candidates more qualified but "to keep an eye on the postings". So 2 weeks ago I found another posting at ACME - the same job title as the one I interviewed for last year - and I applied, called Randy and left him a voicemail message mentioning who I was and I would like to be considered for this position (I also mentioned it in my cover letter). Randy never responded, so I emailed Tracy again, told her about the position I was currently applying for, and asked if she thought there might be something on my employee file preventing me from moving forward. Tracy responded she didn't think there would be anything on my file after so long but if I was concerned to contact Randy myself and ask, as this was not something she could help with. Okay, I realize this ship is sunk but I am wondering...did Tracy legitimately not understand that I was asking for an internal reference? I felt awkward flat out asking....in my opinion, it would be gauche (sorry, yes I am old and I know that is a silly word but that is the only one I can think of) to flat out ask for an internal recommendation after so long, but I have a hard time believing she didn't connect the dots and clue in. One (unrelated) friend told me she would have absolutely known I was asking her to put in a good word for me and she simply didn't want to flat out say no; another said it is possible she didn't clue in (even after the second email)? I know this woman owes me nothing, but I am just so stressed over the job situation right now I can't think properly. I was so certain that with a senior internal reference I would have gotten the job. Perhaps I am jumping to conclusions here, but (especially after the second email) I think she really did not want to be bothered.
I have a feeling that it may be invented in our lifetime.
Is anyone watching either show? They both feature some cute guys. There are a couple of nice looking nerds especially Joshua.
News to small to be mentioned here ? I guess that the gay rumors weren't so far off base.
Celebrity Caterer posted this blind item in his Oscars 2014 thread: [thread]This actor is rumored to be dipping his toes in the coming out pot. Before this I had never heard he might be gay. Yet jokes on the set are being made by him. Plays a womanizer (don't they all?) and crazy gay buzz suddenly abounds. The answer was superhot James Wolk, star of The Crazy Ones, Mad Men and Happy Endings. This thread is for gossip, sightings and photo appreciation of one of the hottest potentially gay men alive.
It's been close to a week of speculations and what ifs. Can't the media take a break and come back when there is actually something to report ?
Forget welfare. Forget food stamps. Forget Obamacare. The most shameful entitlement, at least to Ann Coulter, is sex. In typical Coulter form, she discusses a real problem, which in this case, is single parenthood and poverty, and then, rather than blaming poverty and lack of education on a society that offers little in the way of daycare, parental leave and educational assistance, she blames single parenthood on poor and poorly educated people. She goes on to say that the kindest thing we can do about single parenthood is to be cruel. We need to shame people for having sex. “The one thing that has really changed besides, I mean you have the government often subsidizing bad behavior, you have Hollywood rewarding bad behavior, but there’s also an overwhelming cultural sense, I think it is a political correctness, to end shaming,” she said Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “No, shaming is good. It’s almost a cruel and insensitive thing for the upper classes, the educated, the college graduates, to refuse to tell poor people ‘keep your knees together before you get married.’”

1)Just because I fuck you doesn't mean I'm going to pay your rent. GET A JOB. 2) Just because I fuck your fat ass doesn't mean I'm desperate. I still get looks on the street. 3) Just because I'm older doesn't mean you can bareback me anally, or cum on my face. I'm still a lady. 4) Just because I fuck you doesn't mean I'm going to lick your shitter. Dream on. 5) Just because I fuck you doesn't mean I suffer from arrested development. 50 is the new 30. 6) Just because I like to drink doesn't mean I'm an alcoholic. I can quit anytime I *hiccup* want... where's my purse?...

Just started watching the new season of Dallas. So far after only five minutes in they have done two very big things right. One, they showed John Ross's bulge in some tight undies. Two, they have cast photos in the opening credits. For me that was what was missing from the first two seasons. Now it's Dallas!
Per request of r111 in the "I'm a bartender, not a fucking whore" thread. I'm the guy who posted in the thread about hooking up with one on his day off and with another in a video booth at Blue. I want to add that I tried like hell to seduce a bartender named Eddie, absolutely stunning "straight" Italian guido stud from Staten Island after a friend of mine related that he had a three-some with Eddie and some chick they picked up at Splash, but I could never seal the deal. I was also really hot for the tall blond all-American Adam who bartended and then switched to security at the front door, supposedly at the request of his wife. Waiting on some hot stories.

Diana Vreeland wrote this column every month in Vogue. It's ripe for satire. Come up with your own. Loads of fun for the whole family...Here are some of her examples: Why Don't You: ... use a gigantic shell instead of a bucket to ice your champagne? … cover a big cork bulletin board in bright pink felt, banded with bamboo, and pin with colored thumb-tacks all your various enthusiasms as your life varies from week to week? … tie an enormous bunch of silver balloons on the foot of your child’s bed on Christmas Eve? … paint a map of the world on all four walls of your boys’ nursery so they won’t grow up with a provincial point of view? … (my fave) tie black tulle bows on your wrists? And here are some of the more extravagant ones, inspiring nonetheless. Why don’t you… … own, as does one extremely smart woman, twelve diamond roses of all sizes? … bring back from Central Europe a huge white baroque porcelain stove to stand in your front hall? … wear violet velvet mittens with everything? … have an elk-hide trunk for the back of your car? Hermès of Paris will make this. (Oprah?) …wear, like the Duchess of Kent, three enormous diamond stars arranged in your hair in front? …have a room done up in every color green? This will take months, years, to collect, but it will be delightful—a melange of plants, green glass, green porcelains, and furniture covered in sad greens, gay greens, clear, faded, and poison greens?
Thank God for the tips, or else bartending in a gay club would not be worth it. Everyone treats you like you're for sale. 1)Just because my shirt is off doesn't mean I'm going to fuck you. 2) Just because you tip me $20 doesn't mean I'm going to fuck you. 3) Just because you know someone who knows someone that I hooked up with, doesn't mean I'm going to fuck you. 4) Just because you giggle and act like a 12 year old girl, doesn't mean I'm going to fuck you. 5) Just because you're a regular and I just happened to remember your face and your drink order, doesn't mean I'm going to fuck you. Thanks!!

A new study by the Centre for Addictions Research of B.C. at the University of Victoria has found that the “managed alcohol program” approach reduced emergency hospital visits and arrests among participants at Shelter House, in Thunder Bay, Ont. The centre’s Tim Stockwell, who presented the study to Thunder Bay city council this week, said the results are encouraging. “It’s very controversial and that’s why we wanted to take a good, hard look at the data,” he said in an interview. “We’ve had harm reduction programs for illicit drug users. Well, in fact, this population can be regarded also as illicit drug users because they’re using a lot of non-beverage alcohol. Especially in winter time, there are strong compassionate grounds for not denying people shelter because they can’t do without their alcohol, which has led to some tragic deaths in the past.” Every 90 minutes, from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., the Shelter House provides alcohol – typically six ounces of white wine – to residents who might otherwise consume hazardous “non-beverage” alcohol such as mouthwash, aftershave or even hand sanitizer. All residents were previously homeless. The study compared 18 people in the managed alcohol program with 20 people who were not. The number of police interactions and hospital admissions dropped between 40 and 80 per cent for the 18 participants, who also had stable housing, improved nutrition and renewed contact with families. Both residents and shelter staff reported improvements in mental and physical health and life skills. Program drinks are spaced out through the day rather than consumed all at once – a much safer consumption pattern, the study said. “It was also evident that the type of alcohol being consumed was intrinsically less hazardous; i.e. the wine provided on the program as opposed to a variety of forms of non-beverage and higher-strength alcohol,” it said. Despite the small number of study subjects, the study suggested the health and safety benefits translate to economic savings. Research shows about 38 per cent of homeless men are alcoholics. There is little or no information on the rate among homeless women. The first managed alcohol program was put in place by Toronto’s Seaton House after three men froze to death on the streets during the winter of 1995. A larger study is pending on managed alcohol programs in Thunder Bay, Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and Hamilton, Ont. The study said there are also at least two informal programs in towns in the B.C. Interior. In Vancouver, where the city, health officials and the province are at odds with the federal government over safe injection sites for heroin, the non-profit Portland Hotel Society has forged ahead with harm reduction for the smaller but equally troubled population of severe alcoholics on the streets of the Downtown Eastside. “For us, it’s kind of a pragmatic approach to people we deal with every day,” said Mark Townsend, executive director. “We’d rather they didn’t do this, but they’re doing it so we’re trying to make it a little bit safer for them.” In addition to the managed alcohol program, the society runs a “drinkers lounge” group for severe alcoholics that meets once a week. Among the programs offered to the group is a brew club, which allows them to join in brewing a batch of beer or wine for $10 a batch. Two litres of each is donated to an alcohol exchange, where members can swap toxic, non-beverage alcohol for beer or wine. “This is an extreme thing. If someone’s drinking aftershave, it’s pretty serious and they’ve done it for a very long time,” Mr. Townsend said. “All we’re really trying to do is improve their behaviour in the community and make it possible to house them. For us, it’s succeeded.”

His body is hot. His ass is hotter. Yeah, I think it's weird that a father would flaunt himself and do this. But he's basically the gay male equivalent of a trophy wife, what do you expect? His age is ambiguous, interestingly. An NYMag article "Parenting: My Two Dads" says Terry is 29, although it doesn't have a date, a Time 100 article on "Dan Savage and Terry Miller" said he was 40 in 2011 Mostly, I'm just impressed and a bit aghast how anyone in either their mid 30s or early 40s could keep a body like that

A legal ban on same-sex marriage in Nigeria, Africa's largest country, violates international accords and could bring mob law against gays onto its streets, the United Nations' human rights chief Navi Pillay said on Friday. The comments in the Nigerian capital Abuja from the outspoken Pillay, a former top judge in South Africa, came as in Geneva Russia and Islamic countries urged more global focus on protecting traditional family life. Pillay told her largely Nigerian audience that the country's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community was "living in fear", since the loosely-drafted law, not yet put into effect, had gone onto the statute books. "The law violates international law in that it is discriminatory and seriously impinges on the freedom of expression and freedom of assembly," she declared. It could also "lead to human rights defenders advocating for the rights of LGBT people receiving draconian prison sentences," Pillay said, in a clear reference to phrasing in the measure that bars promotion of homosexuality. U.N. human rights officials were already getting reports of widespread arrests of gays and lesbians in some parts of Nigeria, of physical attacks "including by mobs," and a rise in blackmail and extortion, the U.N. rights chief said. DEFENDING THE FAMILY Officials in Nigeria, and other African countries like Uganda, whose own legislation criminalizing homosexuality has also been criticized by Pillay, often argue that the measures are aimed at defending family life from attack. At the U.N.'s 47-nation Human Rights Council, Russia -- whose own restrictions on gays have brought strong criticism from Western and some other countries -- argued on Friday that the family was the "natural and basic unit of society." Russia has recently introduced a law banning "promotion of homosexuality", a move that led Western leaders to stay away from the recent Winter Olympics and the Paralympic Games in the southern Russian resort of Sochi Reflecting the stand of the Russian Orthodox Church, with which President Vladimir Putin identifies, a Moscow diplomat told the Council that it should be addressing the "problems facing the institution of the modern family." A similar view was voiced by the 57-member Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which fiercely rejects the idea that gays are covered under U.N. rights pacts, and by Namibia. But Netherlands and the international humanist organisation IHEU rejected this stance. A Dutch diplomat told the council that the judicial harassment of defenders of the LGBT community and criminalization of gays were deplorable. "Imprisoning people on the basis of sexual orientation is a violation of human rights, including the freedom of expression, association and assembly," an IHEU speaker from the British Humanist Association said.
This brings up a great point. It also gives some examples of the actresses that have portrayed the role in a contemporary time period. It'd be cool if they actually got an older actress to do the role, especially if they want it to be scary. Mila Kunis and company just don't have "it" and it isn't only due to acting ability. It also has to do with beauty, not to mention costuming. I loved the Baum books. It would be interesting if someone would take a chance on presenting the character as it's illustrated in the original novel. I never cared for that bitch, Dorothy, FWIW. "Return to Oz" really captured the spirit of the books.
I work at 29th and 8th and walked a little south on 8th to an adult video store to try to scrounge up some lunchtime action with some street trade. I was perusing the gay black/Latin DVD section near the booths, when this hot Blatino approached me. Swarthy, sexy and muscled, just how I like 'em. He proudly pointed to one of the DVD covers and said that was him on the cover. He pointed out some of his other covers on display too. Evidently he's done several films and he is self-admittedly a well-known Latin porn star. He looked to have about 9-10 inches, judging by the DVD cover, and from what I saw growing in sweatpants, that was no photoshop. After slipping the attandant $10, we ducked into a booth. I like this particular AVS because the booths are large and can easily accommodate two people. We started kissing passionately as he played with my hole. I told him I needed him in me badly. He put a condom on that monster. I always carry lube, so I lubed that baby up nice and slick. He slid it in, and PARADISE. This is my first porn star fuck. I'd always wanted to hire one, but just didn't have the money they commanded. Meeting one who also street hustles was nice surprise. Perfect timing.

What''s it like, you cosmopolitan DLers?
I''m all ears
I dare you!
NO, this is not a hate racist question. I just want to know why they ALL pick and choose black men. It's rather odd, don't you think? Is there some sort of racial undertone going on with them?
Once you had carnal relations with a man of African-American descent, it's very unusual to go back.
God, I hope so. I''ve always had a male stripper "thing." Something about a hot guy stripping fully nude for a group of other guys in public-guys who are getting all sweaty and breathing shallow and getting obvious hard-ons-makes my precum drip!!!\ \ I see in other countries-particularly in South America and Europe, that fully nude male strippers WITH BONERS (!!) is a common sight.\ \ I love my internet porn and relationships are great but sometimes I just want to see a hot body IN THE FLESH gyrating just for me with no strings attached. Is that so wrong? Give me strip clubs across America with boners!!
I go to the one on 38th and 8th. I pay 15 to go upstairs and am treated to a wide choice of hot black and latin boys. I pay a small gratuity to the boys but a small price to pay for some of the best dick in the city!
I was lonely and went to a male strip club last night where the guys give lap dances. I zeroed in on this gorgeous young Italian stud. Total Jersey Shore-ish juicehead with muscles on top of muscles, which is just my type. Totally shaved except for incredibly hairy pits, which I ached to lick. I intended to get one lap dance for $20 from this guy, but of course I wound up giving this guy a mint. He kept telling me how handsome I was, how he couldn't believe someone who looks like me doesn't have a bf, and that although he tries to remain romantically detached from the customers, he could really see himself falling for me. With each compliment came another $20 dance. He even got me to do a private champage room, which I wanted to avoid because of the cost. He convinced me to do the champagne room after he told me that he likes me so much that he wanted to spend some quality alone time with me away from the other customers. That cost me $175. Ugh. Of course I bought it all all hook, line, and sinker, but at the moment it felt wonderful to have this gorgeous 25-year-old who could have anyone he wanted actually find my 45-year-old ass attractive. By the end of the night, I was out over $400. We even exchanged phone nos. Like a giddy fool, I texted him at 2am telling him how wonderful it was to meet him and that I hoped it'd be the beginning of a great relationship. He texted me back with "Who is this?" That crushed me, and woke me up to the fact that he used me as a personal ATM. I feel so stupid.
Were any of you bitches there? The manager Tim was led away in handcuffs. The whores and patrons were ordered to vacate the premises. The cops siezed the cash and supposedly some illegal substances. No, I don't have a link, but they're talking about it on the muscle service boards. A gym acquaintance of mine dances there occasionally. He doesn't dance at the nude events, but he got the scoop from a dancer who was there last night. Wow, is this the end of Adonis, the heir apparent of the Gaeity?

Ezra Klein’s new Web media venture, Vox.com, has just hired a controversial gay-bashing “gay” named Brandon Ambrosino to write for the new online publication. (Vox on Facebook, Vox on Twitter.) Ambrosino, a recent graduate of religious-right mothership Liberty University, is a professional dancer in Baltimore. In the past year, Ambrosino has branched out from tap-dancing to penning poorly-written pieces critical of gays, gay rights, and gay rights activists. To give you a sense of Brandon Ambrosino’s approach on gay issues, he’s a fan of his alma mater’s founder Jerry Falwell, who once claimed “God hates homosexuality” and later blamed gays and feminists for 9/11. Ambrosino has defended Falwell’s record on gay rights, claiming that the Moral Majority founder was simply misunderstood. The real Brandon Ambrosino One of Brandon Ambrosino’s recent articles has him claiming to have “chosen” his sexual orientation. Ambrosino, rehashing a topic that’s long-since been talked to death, apparently thinks gay people (and one assumes straights as well) choose in advance which gender they’re going to find sexually appealing that day. (The gay-hating religious right agrees with him.) Ambrosino also believes that being transgender is a “choice.” In fact, he calls being trans a “sexual choice,” which even the most casual observer of transgender issues knows it most certainly is not. Ambrosino also believes that being gay is about “sexual behavior.” One of the reasons I think our activism is so insistent on sexual rigidity is because, in our push to make gay rights the new black rights, we’ve conflated the two issues. The result is that we’ve decided that skin color is the same thing as sexual behavior. I don’t think this is true. When we conflate race and sexuality, we overlook how fluid we are learning our sexualities truly are. To say it rather crassly: I’ve convinced a few men to try out my sexuality, but I’ve never managed to get them to try on my skin color. In other words, one’s sexuality isn’t as biologically determined as race. We’re comparing race to sexual behavior? Jerry Falwell couldn’t have said it better himself. As I’ve written before, if you want to get technical – another word for “accurate” – being gay is about sexual attraction, not sexual behavior. A gay priest, who has devoted his life to celibacy, is still gay. Though, ironically, in another piece Ambrosino claims that even if anti-gay GOP Cong. Aaron Schock were to be found in a shower having sex with another man, that wouldn’t make Schock or his shower-buddy gay. So being gay is about sexual behavior, until it doesn’t fit Brandon Ambrosino’s gay-rights-advocate-bashing narrative of the day. Ambrosino also thinks gay activists are mean. He thinks we should be more like Martin Luther King, who “found a way to condemn evil without condemning the evildoer.” Except of course that Ambrosino’s fact-free assertion about MLK inconveniently flew in the face of, you know, actual history. Here’s MLK condemning evildoers: “It may well be that we will have to repent in this generation. Not merely for the vitriolic words and the violent actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence and indifference of the good people who sit around and say, “Wait on time.” And in another poorly-thought-out piece, Ambrosino suggested that it’s not “anti-gay” to find gay marriage immoral: As a gay man, I found myself disappointed with this definition—that anyone with any sort of moral reservations about gay marriage is by definition anti-gay. If Raushenbush is right, then that means my parents are anti-gay, many of my religious friends (of all faiths) are anti-gay, the Pope is anti-gay, and—yes, we’ll go here—first-century, Jewish theologian Jesus is anti-gay. Putting aside for a moment the fact that Jesus never said a word about gay people, let alone gay marriage (much of Ambrosino’s work suffers from the absence of editors), that sing-songy simple style, and the bizarrely unquestioned assumptions (that no one thinks the Pope is anti-gay?), are Ambrosino’s hallmark. He writes and thinks like a first-year college student – that is to say, not very well. And I don’t say this to be snarky. I say it because it belies a much larger problem with the media of late. It’s a problem I call journalistic homophobia. Journalistic homophobia When a congressman hires a young secretary who can’t type, isn’t particularly good at his job, and pays him a lot of money for a position that usually takes a heck of a lot of experience to get, reasonable people ask “why.” The same goes when big-name publications hire a young guy with little publishing experience, and who isn’t particularly adept at writing or thinking. There has to be another reason he got the job. Call it the Jeff Gannon rule: If he’s obviously not qualified, he got hired for another reason. In Ambrosino’s case, he gets hired to bash gays. Ambrosino is riding a recent wave of journalistic gay-bashing that’s become especially trendy as gays get closer to achieving full and equal status in American society and law. It’s a trick formerly used by Fox News and the religious right, but now popular with Time, the Atlantic, the New Republic, and Vox. It’s the “no hetero, no foul” rule of intolerance. So long as the bigot is gay, it’s okay. It’s the same tactic Republicans have used for years. They embrace the most politically extreme African-Americans, Latinos, and to a lesser extent women and gays, in order to claim the mantle of “diversity,” while doing all they can to undermine it. Brandon Ambrosino is the Allen West of homosexuality. He’s your go-to guy, if your goal has nothing to do with finding a legitimate minority voice on the issues of the day. Vox is “hiring journalists who really know the topics they cover” I get that we all needs eyeballs. It’s been a difficult media market since the economy crashed, and online advertising has never fully come back for many of us. Add to that ever-increasing competition from social media, and we all feel pressure to get readers. If we don’t get readers, we don’t get ad revenue, and we don’t survive. But there’s a limit to how far we should sell our souls in order to guarantee our survival. Ezra Klein recently promised the world that Vox would be “hiring journalists who really know the topics they cover.” Well, this guy ain’t it. While I think Brandon Ambrosino is sloppy, unimaginative, a bad writer, and a not-very-complicated thinker, my biggest concern is that he comes across, to me, as having an agenda that borders on animus. IMHO, he’s got issues with being gay, knows how to push people’s buttons, and seems to revel in it – with little regard for the damage he does in the process. By hiring Ambrosino, and lifting his rising star even further, Vox is doing exactly what we routinely criticize the mainstream media for: Leaping before they look, elevating mediocrity, and doing real harm to truth in the process. In the same way the media loved to put gays on TV against “ex-gays,” now they’re putting gay rights advocates on versus Brandon Ambrosino – a gay vs. “gay” catfight, what could be more fun than that? (Actually, the video I link to answers that question – what’s “more fun” is Ambrosino defending a homophobic Catholic bigot against Ireland’s most revered gay rights leader.) Brandon Ambrosino strikes me as a Hipster Homophobe. And I expected better from Vox, a media entity that promised it would be different.
I know most Dlers probably don''t give a shit, but I really wanted to know what are the "best" cities for black and latino gays. Well, "best" is based on the individual, so I guess I''m just asking about pure numbers, bars and nightlife, organizations, etc. Wherever gay blacks and latinos have the most presence.\ \ For Blacks, Not L.A. and San Francisco. So, Atlanta, NYC, DC, Chicago? Maybe Oakland?\ \ Latinos - NYC, Miami?\ \ And, if NYC, then what particular locations?
I find it oddly titillating. Thoughts? It's called "finger-licking" good.

Organizers of South Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade have rescinded their invitation to a gay rights organization to march and cut off negotiations to end a longstanding ban on gay groups, marking another twist in a controversy that appeared just days ago to be on the verge of compromise. Parade organizer Philip J. Wuschke Jr. said Tuesday that discussions with MassEquality had ceased and that the gay advocacy group would be prohibited from participating. The decision represented an abrupt change in tone after days of negotiations. But Tuesday night, Mayor Martin J. Walsh said negotiations continued, and he remained optimistic a deal was within reach. “I’m hopeful those discussions will be positive and we’ll be able to make an announcement,” Walsh told reporters at an appearance in downtown Boston. “I’d really like to be able to march in the parade a week from Sunday. I’m going to hold out hope until the very end. If [MassEquality is] not in the parade, I will probably not be marching.” At the urging of Walsh, parade organizers broke longstanding precedent and invited MassEquality to participate, but with a significant caveat. Marchers would be barred from wearing T-shirts or holding signs that included the word gay or other references to sexual orientation. “We gave them what we figured was reasonable,” Wuschke said Tuesday afternoon in a telephone interview. “They wanted it all.” The parade’s sponsor, the Allied War Veterans Council, issued a press release accusing MassEquality of lying on its application by “using a ploy to enter this parade under false pretenses,” saying it was not a legitimate veterans group. MassEquality’s executive director Kara S. Coredini did not return phone messages seeking comment. Gay rights advocates urged patience and expressed resolute support for the new mayor. “I would say that it’s not over until the parade starts,” said Sue O’Connell, co-publisher of Bay Windows, New England’s largest newspaper serving the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community. “Mayor Walsh is committed to really trying to negotiate this. . . . It’s something he ran on.” Although it is a private parade, the event relies on public resources. In 2013, the city spent more than $315,000 on police overtime for the parade and setting up barricades the day before. The city also incurred costs to clean streets, but police are the most significant expense, city officials said. A spokeswoman for Walsh said parade organizers do not reimburse the city for police costs and do not pay a fee for a parade permit, which was issued Jan. 28 by the Transportation Department. On Tuesday night, Walsh did not seemed inclined to use financial pressure to force parade organizers to include gay groups. “We have to make sure . . . that all the residents of Boston are safe,” Walsh said. “During that parade, a million people come into South Boston.” The controversy over the parade ignited in 1992, when the Allied War Veterans rejected an application to march from the Irish American Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Group of Boston. The group had applied to show solidarity with an organization rejected from the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City, court records show. In Boston, the group known by the acronym GLIB won a state court order and marched “ ‘uneventfully’ among that year’s 10,000 participants and 750,000 spectators,” according to legal records. But parade organizers pressed their case, ultimately landing in the US Supreme Court, which handed the parade organizers a landmark unanimous victory. The court ruled in 1995 that although the parade marched on public streets, it was a privately organized event protected by the First Amendment right to freedom of speech. A parade is a form of expression, the court ruled, and the government could not interfere, even to prevent discrimination against gays and lesbians or any other group.

I am old enough to have known this song when it was a new hit. I have sung it all my life. But a few months ago as I was singing it I started singing it as if it was a boy telling the story. Changed the viewpoint and it enriched the song. And yes I know about the plot in that horrible Robby Benson film version. That got me to think about seeing a gay person in place of a lot of characters on screen and in song that were not there before. Think about how that creates a deeper connection to the lyrics or the character. What if Ashley Wilkes was played gay. In the book it is clear, in many ways, that Mitchell intends for us to see him that way. Or if Gene Kelly were gay in "An American in Paris" and chased after a young male. In fact there is a scene in the film, right after a girl drops into Kelly's arms at the ball, in the background you can see two gay men holding hands and running down the stairs behind Kelly. I know lots of Rogers and Hart songs can easily trade female for male. Then they become our stories too. No looking for gay undertones. Just seeing us as equals in the story.

Peter Lanza has remained a mystery, until now. The latest issue of the New Yorker includes a profile of Peter Lanza, who was interviewed by writer Andrew Solomon. Lanza said he's constantly thinking about what he could have done differently as a parent, and "Any variation on what I did and how my relationship was had to be good, because no outcome could be worse." But he doesn't think he could have predicted the tragedy. "You can’t get any more evil," he said of Adam, adding, "How much do I beat up on myself about the fact that he’s my son? A lot.” Read link for more.

It''s on TCM tonight (Monday) at 11 p.m. Part of a major day-long Elizabeth Taylor marathon.\ \ For my money, one of the better film adaptations of a stage play.

A high school in Sheridan, Arkansas is attempting to censor the yearbook profile of a gay student because he chose to openly discuss his orientation. According to the Student Press Law Center, high school junior Taylor Ellis was among six students slated to receive special commendation in the school’s 2014 yearbook. Ellis chose to use his profile page to tell his “coming out” story. School officials, citing possible negative repercussions against Ellis, have decided to nix the profile feature for the six students altogether. Student Hannah Bruner — assistant editor of Sheridan High’s yearbook, the Yellowjacket — told the Law Center, “I personally I do not think there’s a risk of that because everyone in the school already knows. It’s not a secret.” “He did come out last year,” said Bruner, who wrote the profile about Ellis’ experience, “and he did it over a social networking site so everyone knows already, and the story, like I said, is talking about how accepting everyone has been toward him.” Bruner said that she is unsure which officials in the school administration objected to the profile or why because they will only communicate with the Yellowjacket staff through the students’ faculty advisor. She said that she has repeatedly tried to raise the issue with the school principal Rodney Williams, but has been told every time that Williams is not available. Ellis, for his part, told the Law Center’s Lydia Coutré that he doesn’t understand why the school even has an issue with publishing his story. “I think that it’s a good thing for people like me to see that it’s OK to be openly gay in school,” he said. “(The principal) said that it was personal, but it’s really not that personal because everybody knows. It’s not that big of a deal…It’s just showing other people that it’s OK to be who you are.” The principal reportedly met with Ellis to try and talk him out of publishing his story, telling the teen he could be beaten up or bullied. Bruner, however, said that it’s school officials who are doing the bullying. “They don’t really care about the law, and they’re sending a message to the whole student body and they’re just censoring all of us,” she said. Under 1995′s Arkansas Student Publications Act, state courts ruled that students ultimately have final editorial say over their publications and that school officials may not dictate or censor those publications in any way. Coutré wrote, “Administrators may only censor student publications that are obscene, libelous, constitute an unwarranted invasion of privacy or incite students to commit unlawful acts or those against school policy are ‘not authorized’ under the act.” The deadline for the Yellowjacket to go to the printer, said Bruner, is Friday. This year, the yearbook might be a little late, though. “I’m going to fight this,” she said.

Holy shit, I don't have scientific proof but I'd wager that gay men, as a population, have more food issues than any other group. I'm afraid of getting fat so I can't pretend I'm not a (food) label queen, but after some bad experiences I find myself avoiding vegetarians and vegans...meaning I'm restricting myself from dating most of the guys in DC. Why are gays so obsessed with food?

Anybody watch it? I remember my dad addictively watching the original Cosmos and I love anything that brings knowledge of science and history to the masses. I enjoyed the first episode, though I thought the "spaceship" was kinda silly. The CGI effects and animation were terrific, Neil is a great host and I love that, right out of the gate, it tells religion to stuff it.
He cut NASA's funding on more than one occasion and he's there talking about how important it is to have a show that can inspire Americans... looking beyond our galaxy... new advancements... blah, blah, blah, coughbullshitcough. He's such an asshole. Scientists have been begging him not to cut funding for years but he did it anyway. Seriously, who thought this was a good idea?
They were lame and overrated. I'm sick if people telling me I "have to" like this shit. Can we just move on from the baby boomer dominated pop culture?
Has anyone seen this show? It airs on Netflix. It stars the hobbit and Smaug. Sherlock is really pale and part-Asian and it's modern time but otherwise it's true to Sherlock Holmes and a very good show. Moriarty is gay and sings when he talks.
Big changes are coming to the labor market that people and governments aren't prepared for, Bill Gates believes. Speaking at Washington, D.C., economic think tank The American Enterprise Institute on Thursday, Gates said that within 20 years, a lot of jobs will go away, replaced by software automation ("bots" in tech slang, though Gates used the term "software substitution"). This is what he said: "Software substitution, whether it's for drivers or waiters or nurses … it's progressing. ... Technology over time will reduce demand for jobs, particularly at the lower end of skill set. ... 20 years from now, labor demand for lots of skill sets will be substantially lower. I don’t think people have that in their mental model." He's not the only one predicting this gloomy scenario for workers. In January, the Economist ran a big profile naming over a dozen jobs sure to be taken over by robots in the next 20 years, including telemarketers, accountants and retail workers. Gates believes that the tax codes are going to need to change to encourage companies to hire employees, including, perhaps, eliminating income and payroll taxes altogether. He's also not a fan of raising the minimum wage, fearing that it will discourage employers from hiring workers in the very categories of jobs that are most threatened by automation. He explained: "When people say we should raise the minimum wage. I worry about what that does to job creation ... potentially damping demand in the part of the labor spectrum that I’m most worried about."
Legislation approved by House Republicans would seek to force President Barack Obama to crack down on marijuana in states that have made the drug legal for medical or recreational use. The House passed the Enforce the Law Act by a vote of 233-181 on Wednesday. The bill was introduced by Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Jim Gerlach (R-PA) to allow Congress to sue the president for failing to faithfully execute laws. “The Constitution gives Congress the responsibility to write the laws and the Executive to enforce them,” Gowdy said Wednesday in a statement. “We don’t pass suggestions. We don’t pass ideas. We pass laws. Regardless of our politics, I hope my colleagues have enough regard for our work to expect those laws would be faithfully executed.” A committee report submitted by Goodlatte cited the Obama administration’s decision to not intervene with marijuana legalization efforts in various states as an example of executive overreach. Colorado and Washington both legalized the recreational use of marijuana through statewide voter referendums in 2012. In addition, 20 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana. Federal law, however, still considers the possession and sale of marijuana to be a crime. Attorney General Eric Holder announced last year that the Department of Justice would not challenge states’ marijuana legalization laws as long as they maintained an “appropriately strict regulatory system.” The decision not to enforce federal drug laws “in entire states is not a valid exercise of prosecutorial discretion,” the Republican’s report stated. “Rather, the guidance to U.S. Attorneys establishes a formal, department-wide policy of selective non-enforcement of an Act of Congress. This infringes on Congress’s lawmaking authority by, in effect, amending the flat prohibitions of the [Controlled Substances Act] to permit the possession, distribution, and cultivation of marijuana so long as that conduct is in compliance with state law. This crosses the line between permissible discretionary decisions made by prosecutors on a case-by-case basis and an impermissible suspension of the law by executive fiat,” the report added. The report also cited numerous decisions by the Obama administration regarding immigration and the Affordable Care Act as examples of executive overreach. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said in a statement that the bill would be “dead on arrival” and Obama has threatened to veto it “because it violates the separation of powers.”

Amazon has raised the price of its Prime subscription service from $79 to $99 per year. Prime gives you access to unlimited free two-day shipping on many items, plus access to thousands of streaming movies and TV shows through Amazon Instant Video, a service similar to Netflix. There have also been reports that Prime members will soon get access to a Spotify-like streaming music service. Students with a .edu email address can sign up for Prime for $49 per year. Amazon's site currently encourages you to sign up for Prime at the old $79 price for another seven days. You can sign up now to lock in. The price increase shouldn't come as a surprise. Earlier this year, Amazon said it may raise the Prime subscription as much as $40.

Okay, I am hideously bad at crotchwatching, but am I right in thinking that he's majorly packing?
Ok so I was on jack'd and im super picky so this very attractive guy messages me. We chat a bit and exchange phone numbers, pics etc. He's definitely my type. I have a sync on my phone that connects me to peoples facebook via emails and numbers stored. So I happen to stumble across his fb to find out he is married to a woman. He told me he had roommates no mention of a wife meanwhile I have several booty pics of him bent over naked showing his asshole, but he said he had a girl last nov. That he broke up with and is single, but as of feb 27th he has a new pic of him and his wife together. Should I have the right to be upset at him for almost dragging me to participate in adultery? And all I keep thinking is this guy is flaunting his abs and booty hole all over jack'd looking to get fucked. His poor wife which im sure he doesn't use protection with can be subjected to any STD. And he's a very attractive guy. What should I do I'm ignoring him, but what if I could possibly save the wife from getting an STD or HIV. Its been on my brain a lot lately. If I didn't see his fb I would have been blowing homeboys back out on the same bed he shares with his wife disgusted at the thought. I have since closed my jack'd account.

Well not exactly, he works in the editorial department of Sun News in Canada. Which is Canada version of Fox News. So is he dead to us in the gay community for working for a right wing establishment?
Lena Dunham accepts her curvy body just as it is and refuses to be weight-bullied into adopting unrealistic beauty standards for herself "At the Golden Globes I had a little bit of fat bubbling over, but I love how that looks," Dunham told Glamour March 11. "It looks bountiful. It reminded me of corset dramas." While most celebrities find nude scenes intimidating, Lena said constantly showing off her nude body on her hit HBO series Girls has helped her be more accepting of her looks. "I think I radicalized my relationship to my own body in order to accept it," said Dunham, 27. "To make my body a prop in my work gave it a value I didn't feel it had before." Lena, a self-professed couch potato who hates to work out, has been harshly criticized for not being stick-thin, but has dismissed the cruel fat-shaming, saying it hasn't kept her from living her life. "People called me fat and hideous, and I lived," she said. "And now I keep living." Dunham recently made headlines after slamming the website Jezebel for publishing unretouched photos from her recent Vogue photo shoot. Lena called Jezebel's $10,000 bounty for her unaltered pictures misguided feminism because her photos were barely Photoshopped. "It was the most minimal retouching," she said. "I felt completely respected by Vogue. I felt like, 'Thank you for removing the one line from my face because I'm 27 years old and shouldn't have that there.' I appreciate this." Lena, who's happily dating musician Jack Antonoff (an ex-boyfriend of Scarlett Johansson), said she's happy that Jack is supportive of her success. "I think women are conditioned to stand by their man and watch them make it to the top, but most men never believe the person they get into a relationship with is going to rise any higher than she was when they met," she said. "It takes a very special, evolved person to be able to deal with change within a relationship."

We met at 16 and stayed together for 6 years before I broke things off. Its thirty five years later and I still think of him most every day. I know this is more to do with me than with him,but he is like a hole in my heart. Yes this thread was inspired by the "I''ve got a stalker thread". I''ve always kept track of him,easy to do because he is prominent in his field,but I''ve never called although I would love to hear his voice even on a machine. We are both partnered and I don''t want to hurt anyone unnecessarily. Is there anything I can do to get rid of this obsession?
God, I''m a pathetic old queen.
Muruganantham decided he could be the one, but it wouldn't come easy. In a society where it's uncommon for men to prioritize women's rights, Muruganantham started attracting negative attention by those in his community. He was deemed a "pervert" by many in his village, and was eventually forced to leave. His wife, rattled by the controversy, left him 18 months into their marriage. He nearly lost everything, but refused to stop. Video:

Dumbass.... check out the tweets too. Ezra Klein’s somewhat meteoric rise amid the brat pack of new media journalists a decade or so ago was exciting and reinvigorated journalism. His meteoric career, intelligence, and wonkism charm gave credibility and dashed the then general perception that bloggers “worked” in their PJs from their parents’ basements. His rise to center-left political expert at MSNBC, The Washington Post, and Bloomberg View was impressive but not unsurprising, but his recent departure to create a startup journalism enterprise was. Klein created Vox, which is part of Vox Media – labeled by many as a hipster media company that publishes titles including SB Nation, The Verge, Curbed, and Racked, among others. (SB Nation, by the way, now publishes the excellent OutSports, which covers the LGBT sports world.) While there’s been a great deal of buzz about Klein’s Vox, from journalists and journalism watchers, there was none so much as erupted yesterday, when Klein happily announced he had hired Brandon Ambrosino to write at Vox. These pages have purposely given zero oxygen to Ambrosino, as we believe his 15 minutes of fame are up, and we held that belief when we first read his ill-informed anti-gay drivel. Ambrosino is, well, let’s let Gawker describe him: Brandon Ambrosino is a young gay internet person who stirs up controversy everywhere he points his spoon. He tends to take a contrarian position on things that many LGBT individuals and their allies hold self-evident. You aren’t a homophobe if you are against gay marriage (we need a new word, he says). People who called out Duck Dynasty‘s Phil Robertson for saying the same vile things about gays that people have been saying since gay become a thing are the real bigots. Sit down, Ellen Page, you aren’t so brave for coming out. Being gay is a choice. Jerry Falwell, founder of Ambrosino’s Liberty U alma mater, was actually a good guy. Get the picture? Enter The American Prospect’s Gabriel Arana. Ezra Klein used to work at The American Prospect, so it’s not surprising he would grant them an interview to explain why he hired the faux-intellectual 23-year old anti-gay gay Ambrosino. Gabriel Arana writes: In an interview on Wednesday evening, Klein told me he hadn’t read the pieces that had kicked up so much dust before bringing Ambrosino on but did so once he began facing criticism for the hire. “I don’t want to pretend that I have the context and the background to perfectly or authoritatively judge this debate,” Klein said. “But when I read his pieces, I didn’t come away with the impression that he holds an iota of homophobia.” Yes, that’s right: Ezra Klein didn’t read anti-gay gay person Brandon Ambrosino’s articles before he hired him. Brilliant. By the way, here’s how Arana describes Brandon Ambrosino: Ambrosino fits a mold the bright new media loves: He’s a nerdy white kid whose contrarian views stir the pot. There is no question, especially given the sketchy quality of Ambrosino’s work, that the allure of having someone gay parrot anti-gay views has led editors to look at him and think, “interesting.” His formula is tired, if effective: He throws bombs into the gay community, and his editors call the explosion a debate. It’s disappointing, to say the least, that a journalism venture with the tremendous promise and resources of Vox Media is relying on that cheap trick. With luck, three things will have solidified when this boils over. First, Ambrosino’s 15 minutes are up. He’ll be on the Bryan Fischer/Tony Perkins anti-gay hate group talk show circuit, not penning click bait for The New Republic or Time anymore. Second, Klein will have learned a valuable lesson — one most people assume that a journalist of his stature (or, frankly, most anyone’s) would have learned early on: check out your sources and get to know someone’s work. Third, we can all go back to dealing with important issues of actual equality, and not waste our oxygen on the likes of self-deluding, self-indulgent attention seekers like Brandon Ambrosino.
I've recently discovered him and think he's cute. What is he known for other than Dancing with the Stars? What does DL know about him?
The new 'Anna Nicole' without the humor. The characters surrounding her reek of Howard K. Stern. Expect a death notice soon.
I never look at it anymore, but 12 years ago I looked at it all the time (while hating myself for doing it) because it really was the page with the fastest breaking stories. 12 years later, no one refers to it anymore. There are lots of sites with a more liberal bias that are as fast and as up to date for breaking stories--and they're also much easier to read. His page is nearly impossible to scan--it's just tons of text crammed all together in a big unreadable mess.
Fired? Where'd he go?

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

People in the news, politicians, more than usual movie actors, even ads .. they seem to be taking over. And not just ordinary-looking individuals, but real uggoes.
Most Americans found this movie very creepy (children singing in adult voices and playing adult roles), but the British loved it. If you've never seen it and you wanted to see a thirteen year-old Jodie Foster as a vamp with a marcelled hairdo, this is your chance. Here's the best song:
I love Fraternity X. The scenes and guys are really, really hot, but unfortunately they don't allow you to download and save the scenes. Are any of the porn experts here aware of any way to get around this? Is there a program I can download that will capture the scenes? Much appreciated!
Within a ten mile radius of my house these are six shops that sell homemade chocolates. I just do not understand why these places stay in business. Clearly their main income is making specialty favors for weddings, etc. I cannot believe that there is enough income in that to support a brick and mortar store. Granted, many of these are in old houses, and the owners probably live upstairs, but I would still think that the taxes would make this unprofitable.
The tech industry has turned SF into a city of arrogant corporate douches who have destroyed the city's bohemian life, says the NY Times.
It's actually funnier than Jimmy Fallon's show but that's not saying much. Seff was just a complete dear in headhights during the monolog. It had no flow at all. He was just rapid firing jokes right after another with a complete flat intonation. It was not conversational at all. Maybe he can do it this way when reading the news but not with a monolog. Hopefully he can get better. His vin diagrams were funny though.
How does one go about it?

"Of All The Gin Joints in All The World..." At the height of World War II, Norwegian film star/Resistance fighter Ilsa Lund (Jennifer Aniston) finds herself stranded in Vichy-controlled Morocco, where the only path to freedom are papers of transit held by none other than her ex-boyfriend, alcoholic bar-owner Rick (Gerard Butler). With the help of her Czech makeup artist Viktor (Zachary Quinto), Ilsa concocts a plan to seduce Rick and steal the letters of transit - but her plans are turned upside down when she realizes she still loves him! To make matters worse, rival German film star and Nazi sympathizer Margarethe Strassler (Courtney Cox) is also in Casablanca on a mission to stop Ilsa and maybe steal Rick for herself! Can Ilsa successfully elude the Gestapo, make the world safe for democracy and fly into the sunset with Rick, all while rocking the shit out of khaki blazer? Directed by Penny Marshall.

I was due to report back to work this morning (middle school teacher) and I woke up around 3:45 AM and could not get back to sleep dreading the place I work. I tried and tried, but to no avail. I finally called out at 5:15 AM and felt a weight lift off my shoulder. I fell back asleep and stayed in bed until almost 10 AM. My depression can literally make me just pull the covers over my head and stay in darkness--both literally and figuratively. I was on some anti-depressants last year (Trazodone) but went off them after feeling better. I often think of suicide, but have never actively tried to kill myself. Do you suffer from depression and how bad does it get for you?

I notice that a lot of people do this. They see a flaccid penis, and they instantly categorize it as small, or in DL terminology: "tinymeat". You don''t know how big a guy is until he''s fully hard. Are women just clueless to this phenomenon? Grower, not a shower, people?\ \ Has anyone been with a guy who was small when soft, but grew ginormous when erect?
I like him. His characters always make me laugh.
Doesn't surprise me at all.
On Friday, TMZ reported that the two are at odds over potentially moving the fourth hour of "Today" to Los Angeles. The celebrity gossip site wrote that Gifford has been lobbying for the move, while Kotb is adamant about staying in New York City. Earlier, Page Six reported that Kathie Lee and Hoda's two week stint in Los Angeles was a test run for a permanent move, though "Today" denied the rumor.

And who is the guy massaging Fonda's feet? Is that Troy Donahue at 1:05? Who's the hot guy in the striped tank at 1:10?

President Barack Obama is the latest guest on Zach Galifianakis' spoof chat show Between Two Ferns. In a six-minute clip posted to Funny or Die, the pair trade insults about Galifianakis' weight, Obama's "missing" birth certificate, Bradley Cooper, and the Affordable Healthcare Act. "I wouldn't be with you here today if I didn't have something to plug" says Obama, introducing Healthcare.gov. "That's the thing that didn't work?" asks Galifianakis. "Why would you get the guy that created the Zune to make your website?" Elsewhere in the episode, Galifianakis asks important questions on the "North Ikea" situation, and questions Obama's decision to hire Dennis Rodman as an ambassador to the country.

...but don't bitch that much about the constant fawning over Daniel "you must address me only by my character's name" Day Lewis: "The greatest actor of his generation" (bitch, please). He gets nominated almost every time he farts. And he's the only male actor every to have 3 leading performance Oscars. Is it because Streep is a woman?
I'm getting a new hard drive for my laptop because the old one is corrupted (or something like that). However, I can't find the Microsoft Office product key that I used to install Microsoft Office way back when. And of course I don't want to have to pay for Microsoft Office all over again when I get the new hard drive. When I asked the tech guy at Best Buy if they have a way to get the product key off of the computer, he said, "WE can't get it because it's illegal... but YOU can..." But he didn't have specific advice on how to do it other than to find methods by Googling. Does anyone know a reliable way to do this that works and won't give my computer a virus or something?
By Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times Theater Critic A funny thing happened whenever I set out to see Meryl Streep in “The Iron Lady.” I'd invite one of my moviegoing pals to join me and then find myself later that evening at “Shame,” “My Week With Marilyn” or the glorious “Pina.” The reviews for “The Iron Lady” weren't all that glowing, but Streep came in for her usual chorus of hosannas. For some reason, this wasn't proving to be much of a lure. Even after the Oscar nominations came out, with two-time winner Streep making history with her 17th nomination, “The Iron Lady” was still a no-go with them. Surely this was an aversion to Margaret Thatcher, I thought. But after I investigated their reluctance a bit further, I discovered that several of my well-read, culturally engaged, Pinot Noir-sipping friends are not just indifferent to Streep's greatness — they're actually put off by it. This was shocking news, and they were rightly ashamed to confess it, whispering their secret as though disclosing some white-collar crime they had gotten away with years ago. Should a drama critic be associating with such a crowd? I could feel what I assumed to be my gorge rising. But after reflecting on Streep's recent spate of box-office hits — “The Devil Wears Prada,” “ Mamma Mia!” and “Julie & Julia” — I had to admit that, much as I may have been amused by her outsize portrayals in these films, I found them either too cartoonish or superficial (in that trading on personality way) to leave a lasting impression. Yes, I guess I need to come clean: I too have a Streep problem. Lately, it seems as if her acting comes in two varieties: artful drag burlesques (the Anna Wintourish tyrant Miranda Priestly in “The Devil Wears Prada,” the cluck-clucking Julia Child in “Julie & Julia” and the holy terror nun in “ Doubt”) and relaxed diva charm-fests (aging hippie Donna of “Mamma Mia!” and the spurned Santa Barbara divorcée rediscovering romance in “It's Complicated”). And in both these modes the overriding effect is one of elaborate imposture. She's either impersonating a character quite unlike herself (ah, Streep the magician!) or one who bears a teasing resemblance to her starry middle-aged persona (oh, that lovable grande dame!). Sadly, it seems that even the greatest actors have difficulty not falling into the self-parodying trap memorably summed up by Stephen Sondheim in “I'm Still Here”: “First you're another / sloe-eyed vamp / Then someone's mother / then you're camp.” Her performances are always marvels of technical virtuosity, and her mimicry can indeed be dazzling. One senses her own delight in capturing the likeness of another. Perhaps this is why as she has gotten older she has tended to favor comic masks over tragic ones. But then comedy, which allows her to build a role through selected exaggeration, plays better to her strengths. She can zero in on a defining vocal or physical mannerism and thus flex her muscles as a talking mime. Dramatic characterizations, on the other hand, tend to become lifeless when overly conceptualized. The psychology, if it is to resonate with our own, needs to be embodied rather than anatomized. Of course there's still interpretive emphasis, but an actor's choices should create a coherent inner life. This isn't Streep's strong suit. Drama critic Gordon Rogoff once referred to her as “that scholar of emotions, burrowing in the archives for card-indexed feeling.” Yet the issue isn't really one of authenticity. Streep can be piercing in grief, as her searing Oscar-winning performance in “Sophie's Choice” attests. But her characterizations are so well calculated that they call attention to their own artistry. The dancer is always distinguishable from the dance. It may be hard to recall, now that Streep has become our thespian in chief, that her acting hasn't always been universally acclaimed. One famous detractor, New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael, found Streep's studied perfection bloodless. “[A]fter I've seen her in a movie,” Kael observed in her “Sophie's Choice” review, “I can'

I've noticed a regular (every 3 minutes 23 seconds) 10-second sound of running water in the ceiling above my bathroom. I live on the top floor. Might the landlord have installed some kind of pump?

Spokespeople for the religious sect, which makes up about 10 per cent of Israel’s eight million citizens, have argued that their young men serve the country by ensuring the continuation of Jewish heritage, however secular and less religious Jews have bemoaned the fact that a huge swathe of society is exempt from three years of military service.
As a figure skater he has studied dance, and has a good singing voice. He will assume the role March 17, 2014 Fellow figure skater Johnny Weir has already objected to the casting, as it is taking a role away from an American (him) and giving it to a foreigner. Thus denying an American (Weir) the chance to make his own Broadway debut, instead giving it to a foreigner.

After a 40-year-old man was found by the side of the road with his penis severed and nowhere to be found, police shut down 4 lanes of traffic to search for the missing member. The man was discovered early Thursday morning off the A66 highway in Middlesbrough, U.K., with "wounds to his groin area." He was taken to the hospital, where he remains in an induced coma. Police still aren't sure how the man's penis came to be severed. A 22-year-old was arrested on suspicion of assault, but later released on bail. The status of the penis is also unclear. The highway was reopened later on Thursday, but authorities haven't announced whether their search was successful.

Although they didn't have sexual contact with each other, I just found out that a porn star named Jay Huntington appeared in a porno with his son, "Jerry." Is this as weird/creepy as it seems? Does it count as incest if they're not fucking each other?
I walk into a flea market with romantic dreams of unearthing a priceless Dunbar sofa (that just needs recovering) or a (discontinued white-white) Le Creuset dutch oven, only to feel lost and overwhelmed by what feels like, well, junk. So often the response to the question, 'where did you find that?' has been 'at the Rose Bowl!' or some other marché aux puces. 'There must be a trick to this!,' we thought.

Congratulations Scotland, Queen gives Royal Assent to same-sex marriage 13th March 2014, 7:10 PM; Joseph Patrick McCormick Same sex marriage is one step closer to becoming a reality in Scotland as its bill to legalise it has received Royal Assent. Queen Elizabeth II signed the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill, into law yesterday. This act now means that same-sex couples will be able to marry by the end of 2014. Some early reports indicate that they could take place as soon as July. Today also marks the date that the first same-sex couples in England and Wales can register to marry, and same-sex marriages entered into abroad are now legally recognised there. Congratulations to all of those planning to tie the knot this year, from the PinkNews team.

Michael Bay to produce remake of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds The horror returns as Transformers director revealed as man behind new take on Hitchcock's 1963 frightener, with Naomi Watts set to take Tippi Hedren role Xan Brooks; Thursday 13 March 2014 06.58 EDT Alfred Hitchcock's film The Birds told the story of a rustic seaside town that finds itself menaced by hellish flocks of seagulls and crows. Now the 1963 classic looks set to suffer its own form of molestation courtesy of a Hollywood remake by Transformers director Michael Bay. Loosely adapted from a 1952 short story by Daphne du Maurier, The Birds cast Tippi Hedren in the role of Melanie Daniels, a San Francisco socialite who comes horribly unstuck on a visit to northern California. Reports suggest that Bay's version will return to tale to its original English setting, while Naomi Watts is rumoured to be considering the Hedren role. Variety reports that the film will be directed by the Dutch film-maker Diederik Van Rooijen, with Bay serving as a co-producer. The film looks set to be a co-production between Mandalay Pictures, Universal and Bay's Platinum Dunes production house. It remains to be seen whether the birds will be giant, man-eating birds, or possibly armed with guns. Hitchcock's original film spawned a poorly-received 1994 sequel, The Birds 2: Land's End, which screenwriter Rick Rosenthal later disowned. The idea of a big-budget remake was first mooted in 2007, with Casino Royale's Martin Campbell pencilled in to direct. On hearing the news, Tippi Hedren appeared to be unimpressed. "Why would you do that? Why?" she asked.
