Blind Items Revealed
November 15, 2012
You would think Jon Hamm would have the biggest manhood on the set of Mad Men, you know, because he always wants to show it off. It turns out though that one of the stars other than Jon is called Diet Coke because his manhood is the size of a 20 ounce diet coke bottle. Yeah. Maybe Jon is feeling a little insecure.
I worked on "Jeffery" and saw him in that Cats costume every night. Unless, he intentionally minimized things, I don't remember any "coke bottles". What I do remember is that he is an exceedingly nice man, who writes thank-you notes on engraved cards. Every time I entered the dressing room, he was writing a thank-you note to someone.
I can tell you that John Michael Higgins did stuff for the underwear scene. He had a cock and balls cut from a sponge. He said is was a trick underwear models used.
I liked Brian Batt, but it is a shame they used him for the film. His performance was way too large for the screen. Greg Louganis would have been much better. He actually was fabulous in the role. Unfortunately, his performance did not carry past the fist row.
did not carry past the fist row.
PRICELESS typo R1
I always assumed this BI was about Vincent Karthseiser. Didn't we glimpse his rather enormous schlong in that awful movie he did with Melanie Griffith and James Woods?
I would have thought this BI was John Slattery. He did full frontal theatre many years ago and word on the street was he was pretty impressive.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
