Television Episodes That Haunt You to This Day

Aside from the Clown Mask Rapist episode of Little House on the Prairie or the child molester episode of Diff'rent Strokes, that is.

There was an episode of Cagney and Lacey that does still haunt me. It was a fairly gritty show for its time and they tackled plenty of controversial topics. The episode that I still think about after all these years. Doug Savant played a teenager who stole some booze from a liquor store while holding a fake i.d. that said he was over 21. He was afraid of his parents finding out he was arrested (!!??) so he stuck with the story that he was the person on his fake i.d. Well, because of that he winds up thrown in Riker's Island for the weekend where he his gang-raped by three or four men for FOUR HOURS in his cell. When Cagney and Lacey finally do track him down, he is understandably traumatized and from the looks of it is afraid to sit down in the questioning room because ... well he was just gang-raped for four hours. I never thought Savant was that great of an actor, but he certainly looked terrorized in that scene. The ringleader of the rapists turns out to be the Latino policeman from Barney Miller for God's sake. (The actor playing him, that is, not the actual person.) That's pretty terrifying in itself. Poor Doug Savant. From this role to being cast as Matt in Melrose Place, where he was often being beaten and abused by his boyfriends. Gay roles weren't that kind to him. At least he grew up and finally got a good role as hot daddy Tom on Desperate Housewives.

Is anyone else here haunted by creepy episodes of their favorite TV shows?

Farrah Abraham Plans to Sue ‘Haters’ at Harvard for ‘Educational Abuse’

Here’s some consolation for those who were not accepted to Harvard — “Teen Mom” alum Farrah Abraham says it sucks there.

The reality star is claiming that the Ivy League school is a “joke” and a “scam,” alleging that she became the victim of “educational abuse” after being kicked out of a Zoom class and bullied by a professor to drop it altogether.

“I will be taking legal action against Harvard. I properly gave them time,” Abraham told TMZ while donning the university’s apparel. “I sadly had to write a review on Niche, on Yelp and on Google Maps because no one was getting back to me.”

Abraham detailed the grievances in her Yelp review (which was discovered by fans) regarding a professor in her creative writing Master’s program, Patricia Bellanca, and Dean Robert Neugeboren.

“Basically an elder teacher in a position of power with a male dean blocked me out of a class and also said lies about my work,” Abraham said.

When asked if Abraham felt Bellanca had blocked her from the course just because of “who you are,” Abraham answered, “I literally had to tell her to get in line with the other millions of haters. Like Lizzo who has to deal with haters? I have to deal with haters in education…like the educational abuse for all students.”

Abraham went on to complain that there are high school sophomores in her graduate level classes, despite her paying a “higher rate” to attend. She also insinuated that she was the victim of racial discrimination at Harvard (in addition to “Teen Mom” discrimination).

“I was the most person of color in the class, everyone else was super white,” she said. “Everybody deserves, no matter where you’re from, to do class.”

FYI, Abraham is of Syrian, Italian and Danish descent.

“I would advise Harvard is not a safe nor credible school to attend,” Farrah A’s 1-star Yelp review reads. “Educational abuse, deny student education, unsafe , discriminate, slander and poor mental health and writing and center help. Their own teachers do not know how to teach online!”

The national hysteria over Bob Saget's death

I'd never even heard of this man until last week. Of course I'd heard of Full House, but never watched it when it was on.

He doesn't seem like that much of a public figure to me. Is it just because of the circumstances of his death that he is getting so much attention? It was probably a suicide, a lot of people go to luxury hotels to do that so their body doesn't decompose for days at their personal home for days before it is found.

Can someone explain why this is getting so much attention?

Gallup: Americans become more Republican

Americans aren’t so smart.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On average, Americans' political party preferences in 2021 looked similar to prior years, with slightly more U.S. adults identifying as Democrats or leaning Democratic (46%) than identified as Republicans or leaned Republican (43%).

However, the general stability for the full-year average obscures a dramatic shift over the course of 2021, from a nine-percentage-point Democratic advantage in the first quarter to a rare five-point Republican edge in the fourth quarter.

Line graph. Quarterly averages of U.S. party identification and leaning in 2021. In the first quarter of 2021, 49% of U.S. adults identified as Democrats or leaned Democratic, while 40% identified as Republicans or leaned Republican. In the second quarter, 49% were Democrats or Democratic leaners, and 43% were Republicans and Republican leaners. In the third quarter, 45% were Democrats and Democratic leaners, and were 44% Republicans and Republican leaners. In the fourth quarter, 42% were Democrats and Democratic leaners, and 47% were Republicans and Republican leaners.

These results are based on aggregated data from all U.S. Gallup telephone surveys in 2021, which included interviews with more than 12,000 randomly sampled U.S. adults.

Gallup asks all Americans it interviews whether they identify politically as a Republican, a Democrat or an independent. Independents are then asked whether they lean more toward the Republican or Democratic Party. The combined percentage of party identifiers and leaners gives a measure of the relative strength of the two parties politically.

Both the nine-point Democratic advantage in the first quarter and the five-point Republican edge in the fourth quarter are among the largest Gallup has measured for each party in any quarter since it began regularly measuring party identification and leaning in 1991.

The Democratic lead in the first quarter was the largest for the party since the fourth quarter of 2012, when Democrats also had a nine-point advantage. Democrats held larger, double-digit advantages in isolated quarters between 1992 and 1999 and nearly continuously between mid-2006 and early 2009.

The GOP has held as much as a five-point advantage in a total of only four quarters since 1991. The Republicans last held a five-point advantage in party identification and leaning in early 1995, after winning control of the House of Representatives for the first time since the 1950s. Republicans had a larger advantage only in the first quarter of 1991, after the U.S. victory in the Persian Gulf War led by then-President George H.W. Bush.

Keanu Reeves is 'embarrassed' by his fortune, gives money away

Keanu Reeves is one of the most generous actors in Hollywood, often using his estimated wealth of $315 million to serve others.

A family friend recently told The Post that the actor is "somewhat embarrassed" about how much money he has. However, Reeves has made efforts to share his good fortune.

"Keanu’s given away a lot of money and done a lot more for people than most will ever know," a family friend told The Post. "He knows how lucky he is. Unlike many Hollywood mega stars, he never takes any of this for granted."

Some say the actor is charitable after suffering many hardships in life.

Reeves grew up with an absent father who served time in prison for possession of drugs. He lost his best friend River Phoenix, who died of a drug overdose, in 1993.

Reeves and former girlfriend Jennifer Syme lost their daughter Ava, who was stillborn, in 1999. The couple split but reunited in 2001. Syme suffered from depression and died after driving her Jeep into a line of parked cars while intoxicated.

Reeves’ sister Kim was diagnosed with leukemia in 1991. The actor donated millions of dollars to cancer charities and even auctioned a date with himself.

His sister, who went into remission in 2010, described her brother as her "prince" to People.

The actor has been known for giving lavish gifts to his coworkers, even giving a set builder a $20,000 bonus when he was going through financial difficulties.

Reeves also gave 12 stuntmen on "The Matrix Reloaded" Harley-Davidson bikes, and he gifted the stuntmen on "John Wick 4" with Rolex Submariner watches with personalized inscriptions.

He even bought his mother Patricia Taylor a house before buying houses for himself and two of his sisters.

Reeves is considered by many to be one of the most kind-hearted and generous stars in Hollywood, making it his mission to be charitable to others.

Recommendations for horror movies from late 70s to early 80s (have already seen a lot of them)

To me, this period in horror film making is such a delight. There is amazing stuff, terrible stuff, campy stuff, good idea/bad execution, etc. but I have enjoyed watching nearly all of it that I have come across. I think I just enjoy the aesthetic of this time too (I was born in 1981 so smack bang in the middle of it, but never really watched any of these movies until very recently, bar a few exceptions). Posters on here are really good with this stuff, so any recommendations out of the ones I have left would be very much appreciated. I do know I want to see "My Bloody Valentine", "Happy Birthday to Me" and "The Prowler", but it's just a matter of finding copies. I've chosen the years from 1976-1984, but if there is a recommendation later or earlier in that time period, feel free! (Just to note, I have already seen Black Christmas, which I loved). I'm particularly interested in the slashers/one-by-ones, but again, it's all good.

The following is what I have already seen, from memory/Wikipedia:

1976: Alice, Sweet Alice; Carrie; The Omen.

1977: Alucarda; The Hills Have Eyes; The Psychic; Suspiria.

1978: Dawn of the Dead; Halloween.

1979: Alien; The Amityville Horror; Nosferatu the Vampyre; When a Stranger Calls; Zombi 2.

1980: The Changeling; City of the Living Dead; The Fog; Friday the 13th; Inferno; Prom Night; The Shining; Terror Train.

1981: An American Werewolf in London; The Beyond; The Burning; The Evil Dead; Final Exam; Friday the 13th Part 2; Halloween II; Hell Night; The House by the Cemetery; The Pit.

1982: Friday the 13th Part III; Halloween III: Season of the Witch; Manhattan Baby; The New York Ripper; Pieces; The Slumber Party Massacre; Tenebrae; The Thing.

1983: Sleepaway Camp.

1984: Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter; Gremlins; A Nightmare on Elm Street; Silent Night, Deadly Night.

MTF Trans People

Not sure if it's just who is getting more press, but it seems as if many MTF trans are not effeminate men, but rather the sort of guys who'd be described as "masc" on a gay dating app, and that many of them are not, in fact, gay men, but straight men, who want to transition and become lesbians.

Compare that to the sort of effeminate gay men who become "gender queer" or some similarly vague description, but who don't seem to have any real wish to have breasts or have their dicks lopped off.

I admittedly do not know any trans people beyond a handful of distant acquaintances, but wondering if those of you more acquainted with MTF have a clearer picture.

Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee

Did you know that the Queen of Hawaii wrote a song for Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee?

Exactly 150 years ago, Queen Lili'uokalani of Hawaii wrote a song for Queen Victoria's 50th year as the reigning Queen of England:

Queen's Jubilee - by Queen Lili`uokalani

"All hail to you, Great Queen of England

Fair Queen who rules over land and sea

From northern seas to southern shores

Your way is known both far and near

We come to your shores, gracious lady

On this great day of your Jubilee

To bring kind greetings from afar

May heaven bless you, long may you reign

All hail, all hail, Empress of India

In this your year of Jubilee

Now kings, queens and princes great

Have all assembled here today

To pay due homage and reverent love

Hawaii joins with loyal fervor

May Heaven smile on you

God bless the Queen, long may she live"

So which one of you bitches is going to write a song for Queen Elizabeth II?

Retrospective - 1985's "A Chorus Line"

It was (and remains) an iconic Broadway show, but as a feature film for the rubes who never saw it on Broadway or the West End, it just couldn't measure up to its own hype. People expected it to be a smash hit, but it lost millions at the box office. It was directed by Oscar winner Richard Attenborough, and starred white-hot Michael Douglas in the lead role. It even had choreographers and set pieces taken almost directly from "Flashdance." In other words, it was set up to be a winner. And yet, it wasn't. It was nominated for all the big awards, but lost to films both subtler ("Prizzi's Honor") and grander ("Amadeus" was the smash hit that year). When people talk about the show today, they're still almost always talking about the original stage productions and the revivals, and this movie is swept aside like an ugly stepsister.

So what's the story? How could such a beloved stage musical be such a flop as a feature film? Was it timing? Style? Or was the original stage show simply overrated to begin with?

Also, it's free to watch on YouTube at the link below. Cheap Cunts rejoice!

Sally Struthers

She's the guest on the new episode of Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast (a podcast DL should love), and she seems like a very nice, funny person. I had no idea she was part of 1970s New Hollywood, appearing with Jack Nicholson, Steve McQueen, Ali MacGraw and others (she says she and MacGraw still get together for "Ali and Sally visits"). She also worked with Jack Benny, Bob Hope and a lot of old-timers.

I haven't gotten to the point where she discusses Rita Moreno and "The Odd Couple" — I'm hoping it's loaded with dish.

I was at SEA-TAC when an "army" of Qatar Airways flight crew surrounded me, on their way to the gate.

Every single one of their flight attendants was young, attractive, and full of make-up. They were also very pleasant and smiling, even while walking through the airport. And their uniforms were really sharp.

As I flew on both American and Delta, it was a stark contrast to the older, less made-up, somewhat dumpy, and undoubtedly grumpy flight attendants on these airlines.

Are you a US Survivor fan but not feeling season 41? Some of us have found Australian Survivor on Paramount + and want a place to discuss. I feel bad that our chat about Australian Survivor took over the Survivor 41 thread a bit so decided to start this thread.

Even though the seasons aired in 2019, 2020, and earlier this year I've remained spoiler free, and am glad because I have been enjoying not knowing what's going to happen.

So for the time being let's keep it to general discussion about the series and players. And once a bunch of us have caught up, then we can open up the discussion more.

And of course, don't forget dreamy host Jonathan LaPaglia.

Lena Dunham shows her stunning transformation and talks reboot of GIRLS. Sis is showing us all what beauty really is

"The polarizing auteur, back at Sundance with "sexual fable" 'Sharp Stick,’ reveals how surviving hate, sickness and addiction led to artistic rebirth: "I'd love the next decade to be less about apologizing and just about openly making art." " t was early 2020, and Lena Dunham was living in London, excitedly preparing to make her first feature film since her 2010 breakout Tiny Furniture. She had moved to the city temporarily in the summer of 2019 to direct the pilot for the HBO series Industry and loved it so much, she stayed. The film she was prepping, an adaptation of her favorite childhood book, Catherine, Called Birdy, was about a 13-year-old English girl coming of age in 1190 A.D.

Dunham bought the rights shortly after she’d shot to fame as the creator and star of HBO’s Girls. “People were like, ‘What do you want to option?’ They were throwing all these wild best-sellers at me,” recalls Dunham, 35. “I was like, ‘I’d really like to option this YA novel about a medieval girl getting her period.'”

Israeli police demolish Palestinian family’s Sheikh Jarrah home

Israeli police have forcibly removed a Palestinian family from their home in Sheikh Jarrah, the occupied East Jerusalem neighbourhood where evictions helped trigger a round of fighting between Israel and Hamas last year.

About a dozen police officers arrived at the Salhiya family’s house in the early hours of Wednesday, dragging the 15 occupants outside before demolishing their home with a bulldozer. The eviction was the first to be successfully carried out in Sheikh Jarrah in nearly five years.

Latinos warn Democrats about growing problem with Hispanic voters

Democrats admit they’re losing ground with Latino voters.

But Latino Democratic leaders and operatives are increasingly worried that time is running out to do anything that would make a significant difference ahead of the 2022 midterms, when the party needs a robust Latino turnout to preserve its slim majorities in Congress. For years, those leaders have warned that the party needs to invest earlier in outreach, hire more Latinos for decision-making positions and talk to Latino voters about more issues than just immigration. But even after a presidential election marked by former President Donald Trump’s impressive gains with Latinos across the country — not just in Latino-heavy South Texas and South Florida — they see a lack of urgency in addressing those issues. Between that and a failure to keep pace with GOP efforts to communicate with Latinos on newer platforms, there’s a creeping fear that the traditional Democratic advantage with Latino voters will continue to erode in November.

“Intellectually, Democrats know they have a problem,” said Maria Teresa Kumar, founding president and CEO of Voto Latino, a grassroots political organization. “But I haven’t seen the investment that needs to happen for it to translate.”

Latinos — the largest of the nation’s fastest-growing demographic groups — have long been viewed as solidly blue Democratic voters. While President Joe Biden captured the majority of the Latino vote in 2020, Trump improved his margins in 78 of the nation’s 100 majority-Hispanic counties. Since then, a spate of reports, analyses and polls have made it clear that the party has reason to worry if it doesn’t change its current approach. A recent report by Democratic research firm Equis found that a majority of Latinos believe that Democrats take them for granted. It also found that Trump’s policies on the coronavirus pandemic and economy were popular among Latinos and that GOP attacks claiming Democrats embrace socialism have been effective.

Another analysis by Democratic voter data firm Catalist found that, while six in 10 Latino voters backed Biden, Trump’s share of the Latino vote increased by 8 percentage points compared to 2016.

Kumar points to Florida — where Trump saw some of his largest gains with Latinos, both among conservative-leaning Cuban Americans and voters from other Latin American countries, such as Colombia, Venezuela and Nicaragua — as an example of Democrats having “a deficit in communications and connection.”

“Trump and the Republican Party never left Florida. They kept cultivating and communicating with the Latino community,” Kumar said. “Sure, a lot of it was disinformation and messaging that Biden is a communist and a socialist, but they kept doing it — and it was effective.”

One Democratic super PAC found that the party’s English-language ad spending dwarfed Spanish-language ads in numerous Latino-heavy House districts that Republicans flipped in 2020.

According to a spreadsheet shared with POLITICO — assembled out of frustration by the super PAC, which favored more Spanish-language ads — Democratic groups combined to spend almost $5 million in English-language ads in California’s 39th Congressional District, and not a cent on Spanish-language ads.

In that district, which is more than 30 percent Latino, Democratic incumbent Gil Cisneros lost to now-GOP Rep. Young Kim by just over 4,000 votes.

In the nearby 48th District, which is about 20 percent Latino, Democrats spent just $33,000 in Spanish-language ads, compared to more than $12 million spent in English-language ads. Democratic incumbent Harley Rouda lost narrowly there to Republican Michelle Steel.

“It should be a wake-up call to Democrats. When there are no people of color at the decision-making level of a campaign, our constituency becomes an afterthought and you underperform because you’re not reaching out to them with the same priority as white suburban ‘persuadable’ voters,” said Chuck Rocha, a Democratic strategist and former senior adviser to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) presidential campaign.

It would be more interesting for them to do Cleopatra’s last year with Mark Antony. They lost the Battle of Actium. Mark Antony is depressed and Cleopatra is doing everything she can to stop Octavian from invading Egypt.

I don’t know how they’re going to fit everything into 3 hours and it be good. And I’m also worried they’ll make it a love story instead of going for politics, which is more interesting.

For DLs who love country music: What do you do when a beloved country star is revealed to be….?

Asshole, or a racist or a rapist? I recently discovered that George Jones and Tammy were not only racists, but performed at George Wallace rallies. I liked Michael Ray until I realized he is a cheating asshole. Don’t get me started on Jason Aldean : blackface, misogyny, open cheater, disrespectful to his children, and he said he hasn’t read a book since college. And just today I found out that Dustin Lynch played at a conservative rally with Tucker Carlson, The Father Coughlin of Fox News. Now being a Republican isn’t a sin, Miss Loretta and Reba are members. But based on their actions I don’t think they would perform for George Wallace. The problem with country music has always be the continuous defense of the music against the backdrop of a stereotype of confederate flags, hound dogs, fat sheriffs, and a deep racial hate.

David Pevsner - My Life As Gay Prostitute

In his memoir, Damn Shame, David Pevsner writes about feeling aroused by the very idea of having sex with men as part of his job. As the years went by, he found himself feeling increasingly attracted to the idea of sex work. So after years of exploring his sexuality through bathhouses and leather bars, David decided to try out his ultimate fantasy – and it was everything he could have dreamed of.

“I know plenty of guys who have done it, and everybody has a different experience,” he says. “My experience was very pleasurable. It taught me a lot about myself, it taught me a lot about men. When I was escorting, it wasn’t just about, ‘I show up, I f**k and I make money’ – it was so not just that, because I was dealing with individual people.

It wasn’t until David started escorting that he was forced to challenge all of those preconceptions he had about what makes a man sexy.

“Escorting really changed how I looked at men’s bodies,” David says. “ I was trying to deal with my struggle about how I felt about his body, which I think about now and I just go, that’s ridiculous. But it’s what happened as part of my journey. And then came escorting, where I was having sex with a lot of guys whose bodies were not ‘the ideal’, but I still had to perform sexually. How do you do that? You start to look at a guy differently. It made me look at personality and brains and humour. I had to because I was being paid, but what it was doing was it changed my aesthetic when it came to men. I was much more open about the physicality of men, and from that point on it really changed me.”

Escorting wasn’t the only way David expressed his sexuality – he also did numerous erotic photoshoots over the years with a wide variety of photographers. That led to him curating his own Tumblr account where he shared his pictures with fans all across the world. Later, after Tumblr banned adult content, he moved to OnlyFans.

“OnlyFans is a great place, because it’s very much the case that you are there because you want to be there,” David says. “You pay to be there, so it’s not like it’s going on XTube where just anybody can click on it and have an opinion. I’m not interested in your opinion, I just want to do my work.

“I started posting those videos and I started shooting more and more stuff, and I found that I can approach the videos I shoot the same way I approach the photoshoots, the same way I approach my acting work, the same way I approach escorting – there’s lots of layers to everything. When I shoot a video, sometimes it has a story to it. Sometimes it’s a role play, and sometimes it’s just me shoving a dildo up my ass. But I’m not going to post it if it’s just a one layer thing.”

The main thing, of course, is that David is enjoying exploring his sexuality with the world on OnlyFans. But it’s about more than just enjoyment – he also thinks it’s important that men his age show the world that they can still turn people on.

“Doing this, to me, feels like activism,” he says. “A 60-something year old guy filming these videos, putting them up shamelessly, and saying: ‘This is what I do at home.’”

“Everybody had different needs, everybody had different ways of asking for their needs. As an actor, I found it fascinating the characters that I met – some really sweet people who were either lonely or needy or hungry – whatever it was, I always tapped into it. It turns out, I enjoyed it. Sorry everybody who wants to take sex work and put shame on it – my personal experience of it was great.”

US airlines warn C-Band 5G could cause 'catastrophic disruption'

The airline industry claims a “catastrophic” event could unfold on Wednesday when AT&T and Verizon activate their new C-Band 5G networks. In a letter obtained by Reuters, the CEOs of several prominent passenger and cargo airlines, including Delta, United and Southwest, warn interference from 5G cell towers could affect the sensitive safety equipment on their planes.

"Unless our major hubs are cleared to fly, the vast majority of the traveling and shipping public will essentially be grounded," they state in the letter, which was sent to the heads of the White House Economic Council, Federal Aviation Administration and Federal Communications Commission, as well as Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. "Immediate intervention is needed to avoid significant operational disruption to air passengers, shippers, supply chain and delivery of needed medical supplies."

The airlines have asked that AT&T and Verizon not offer 5G service within 2 miles of some of the country’s busiest and most vital airports. They’re also urging the federal government to ensure “5G is deployed except when towers are too close to airport runways until the FAA can determine how that can be safely accomplished without catastrophic disruption." The agency established 5G buffer zones at 50 airports on January 7th.

The letter is the latest development in the ongoing back and forth between the airline and wireless industries. AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon spent nearly $80 billion at the start of 2021 to secure the repurposed C-Band spectrum the FCC had put up for auction. In November, AT&T and Verizon agreed to delay their C-Band rollouts to January 5th to help the FAA address any interference concerns. They later proposed limiting the power output of cell towers close to airports and agreed to a further two-week delay on January 4th.

Songs That Make You Cry Just Because of How They're Sung

I posted a live performance of The Righteous Brothers' 'Unchained Melody' a minute ago. I've watched it several times and it draws tears out of my eyes, strangely, simply because of the vocalist's tone and his manner of performing—I don't think the lyrics have much to do with it.

Joni Mitchell's 'A Case of You' does the same to me, both her original and Tori Amos's cover of it, which is how I first heard the song. In this specific case, the lyrics do have a lot to do with why I get weepy—specifically, the amazing lines "You said love is touching souls/Surely, you touched mine/'Cause part of you/Pours out of me/In these lines/From time to time." But it's also the melody itself that just sucks tears out of my face. I find it really fascinating. I cannot listening to this song without crying every single time.

What songs do this to you?

I am not a big cryer in most circumstances. I am pretty emotional, but in most cases, I don't produce tears in situations when many other people would. But some music just turns on the waterworks reliably, like the composer hit on a perfect alchemy to tap into emotions.

Dolph Lundgren- did you find him hot back in the 80s/90s?

Do you find him hot today?

I always found him hot yet something unattractive about his face at the same time, but I could never figure out what that thing was. However, I find him very hot in older age. He looked sexy in Creed II and Aquaman. Wow, that was a good year for him, no?

Eventually Susan Hayward's voice would be dubbed by Margaret Whiting but here is Hayward with Judy's voice.

Also on this video are Judy's wardrobe tests from VOTD and right after is a video with Patty Duke being interviewed telling how horribly Judy was treated on that set.

Interesting tidbit...Judy kept the clothes from VOTD and often wore the sparkly pantsuit in the rest of her performances for I guess the next two years until she died in 1969. At least she got something out of that film. Patty Duke speaks of this as well in that interview.

Sean Penn Says He’s Glad He’s Old and Won’t Have to “Deal” with Where the World is Heading

The post Sean Penn Says He’s Glad He’s Old and Won’t Have to “Deal” with Where the World is Heading appeared first on Consequence.

Growing old is more-or-less a sin in Hollywood, but 61-year-old Sean Penn isn’t mad about it. In a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, the actor said he was happy to grow old so he won’t have to deal with the world’s increasingly apocalyptic future.

“I’m a little frustrated with the world,” Penn said. “I’m glad I’m old and won’t be having to deal with where this stuff is going.”

Penn’s misanthropic comments seemed to be inspired by so-called cancel culture, as he went on to denounce those who pick and choose issues to be upset about.

“We give too much of a shit about what we are going to be accused of by people who want to be self-righteous because they can get a quick reward,” Penn said. “And they’re self-righteous hypocritically — they damn this, but don’t worry about why kids are being bombed in Yemen, because it’s not getting them into a club right away.”

Penn has never been shy about his political beliefs. Back in July, he refused to resume shooting the Starz series Gaslit until every cast and crew member was vaccinated against COVID-19. Before that, he chided the “salacious” #MeToo movement because it “divides men and women.”

More recently, he directed the film Flag Day, a drama based on Jennifer Vogel’s 2004 memoir Flim-Flam Man: A True Family History. Starring Penn and his daughter Dylan, the film tells the story of Vogel’s charming father, the bank robber and conman John Vogel. In keeping with the film’s father-daughter theme, its soundtrack features contributions from Eddie Vedder and his daughter Olivia, as well as Cat Power and Glen Hansard.

Ava Phillippe Talks About Her Sexuality in Candid Response to Fan

Someone should ask her why she doesn't speak to her father.

Ava Phillippe is opening up about her sexuality.

The 22-year-old daughter of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe responded to questions from fans during an Instagram Stories Q&A on her page.

“Do u like boys or girls,” one fan asked.

Ava responded in a post shared to her 996,000 followers, “I’m attracted to… people! (Gender is whatever).”

While it’s not clear if they’re still together, Ava has been open about her relationship with boyfriend Owen Mahoney. Last summer, they snapped a selfie while attending a baseball game together and we also have some great candid photos of them stepping out in L.A.

Reese recently opened up about her kids growing up in the spotlight. She told InStyle, “It’s an odd situation because I didn’t grow up famous. So [Ava is] living an experience that I did not have, and so are my sons. We are lucky enough to have friends who grew up in Hollywood and can help give them advice on how to navigate. Ava is so down-to-earth. She wants to do great things in the world. She’s studying and learning and trying to find herself. It’s a big thing in life to try different things and figure out what is really your path.”

Fans are loving Olivia Benson’s response to her son coming out on ‘SVU’

Well, just when we thought it was impossible to love Mariska Hargitay's Capt. Olivia Benson any more, she gave us a pretty great reason to on Thursday night's "Law & Order: SVU."

At the end of the episode, her son, Noah (Ryan Buggle), who's about 8 years old, made a very big — and important — revelation to his mom: that he is bisexual.

His coming out happened after a cruel instance of bullying at the beginning of the episode, when Noah could be seen on all fours in a cage with a collar on being told by a boy named Hudson, who was filming the scene on his phone, to "bark like a dog."

Not long after, Hudson's mom stumbles upon the scene with Olivia close behind, and Hudson insists they "were just playing," and Noah says the same when asked by his mom if he's OK.

"Let's get you home," Olivia says, as she ushers him out of the room.

Outside, Olivia asks Noah to explain what happened, and while Noah remains silent, she follows up wondering why his neck is red.

"If I tell you, will you stop asking?" he replies. "Hudson's a jerk. He put his dog's collar on me, locked me in the cage and he wanted me to eat dog food."

"What!" Olivia says, as she bends down to speak to her son at eye level.

"I said, 'No,'" Noah explains. "I don't want to talk about it anymore."

Olivia and her squad catch a case, so the conversation with Noah doesn't pick back up until the episode's final scene when mother and son are taking an evening walk together.

Olivia informs Noah she suggested to Hudson's mom that the next play date be at their house instead.

She also tells him she talked to Hudson's mom about the dog cage incident, even though he told her not to mention it.

"Mom, I asked you not to! Hudson's just an idiot, no one likes him anyway," Noah says. "He bullies everyone: It was just my turn to be his target."

When Olivia asks why, Noah says he doesn't understand why and explains how Hudson went after other kids, including one who uses they/them pronouns whom Hudson started calling "a fairy."

"Then I said that I was bi," Noah tells his mom.

At this moment, the camera lingers on Olivia's face as she takes in her son's news. (Again we ask: Where is Hargitay's Emmy?)

"And that there's no shame in being true to yourself," Noah continues.

"That's right, Noah," Olivia, clearly proud, replies, acknowledging how her son stood up for himself as well as the other bullied kid.

"That is incredibly brave," she says.

"Well, it's my truth. I just hadn't told anybody before," he tells her.

"Well thank you for telling me," Olivia says, smiling at her son.

"No big deal," he replies. "It's not like I have a boyfriend or girlfriend, it's just not fair for anybody to be left out."

"I hear that," Olivia says while pulling Noah in for a hug and dropping a kiss on his head, "I'm really proud of you."

In that moment, Olivia let Noah take the lead in the chat and didn't interrupt or push him as he spoke his truth. She also treated their talk like any other conversation.

After the episode aired, Buggle opened up about his character's big moment and how Hargitay supported him ahead of filming.

"Filming this episode was such an important, incredible and exciting experience for me. @therealmariskahargitay personally called me to talk about the script before it was finished and I felt so involved and respected," he wrote on Instagram.

"It is incredible to see Noah beginning to discover who he is. My feelings are the same, there is no shame in being true to yourself and no one deserves to be left out or bullied because of it," he continued.

"I wanted to take the time to connect you with an incredible organization that I’ve learned about that is creating safe and inclusive K-12 environments for all students. @GLSEN thank you for all you do. ~Ryan #noahbenson #svu"

"SVU" fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the scene.

I couldn’t find video of this episode.

Person with BPD caused emergency services to be summoned so often they sent her a letter

She's posted the last page of it to Twitter and is now basking in the attention of people telling her that her feelings and mental health matter more than some letter!

(not sure if BPD refers to Borderline Personality Disorder or Bipolar Personality Disorder, perhaps someone else can clarify).

The letter mentions some incidents where she has been loitering near bridges and overpasses in a way that caused her friends to be concerned, multiple times apparently, as well as calling emergency services, both her and her friends, because she is feeling suicidal or is acting in a concerning manner.

Is she in the right here or does it seem like she's mainly doing it for attention, and then hiding behind the mental illness diagnosis (not sure if self-diagnosed or other) and the support of others like her on Twitter? A quick glance at her Twitter shows a person who spends the majority of their time talking/venting about their mental illness.

Is she blameless in this because of her mental illness, or does she bear some responsibility?

Greer Garson

It's pretty well agreed that when Joan Crawford was let go by Metro in 1943, her position as the grande dame of the studi was pretty much taken over by Greer Garson. Garson not only was born in the same year as Crawford (1904), but they had a physical similarity... and of course Garson and Crawford enjoyed a facial similarity (although I would argue that Garson was more beautiful in the 1940s than Crawford). Garson even got to play Crawford's dream role, a biopic of Madame curie, whom Crawford referred to as "that egghead scientist."

Yet despite being her equal in glamour and beauty, and having more Oscar nominations (and as many Oscars) as Crawford, Garson is nearly completely forgotten on Datalounge. Is there no love here for the tangerine-haired beauty?

I had watched the HBO Documentary about Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, and also read a recent biography of Carrie, along with most of her books.

Now, you would think they probably encountered each other along the way, starting with 1950s Hollywood when they both grew up in Beverly Hills.

Underrated songs

Ok, I'll admit it. The only reason I am starting this thread is because I've just listened to "Blaze of Glory" by Jon Bon Jovi for the 5th time in a row and I want some high minded individuals to indulge me and tell me I am right in declaring it one of the best songs if the 90's. I mean, sacrilege and all but I think it gives Vogue( from that same year ) a run for its money, though on this board that may be a tad unpopular. But come on, hearing Jon blast out the following : " You ask about my conscience And I offer you my soul You ask if I'll grow to be a wise man Well, I ask if I'll grow old

You ask me if I known love And what it's like to sing songs in the rain Well, I've seen love come And I've seen it shot down I've seen it die in vain"

Is better than Madge and her tatas singing about people putting their arms into posing positions. So anyway, what song that you love isnt liked enough?

Looters Go To The Source

Why loot stores? Cut out the middleman and take it from the train.

Union Pacific sent a letter to Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon last month threatening to route rail cargo traffic elsewhere if he would not prosecute theft and looting from cargo trains more aggressively, it was revealed on Monday.

The letter added that “like our customers, UP is now contemplating serious changes to our operating plans to avoid Los Angeles County.”

In reality the UP has no way not to use Los Angeles County facilities.

Here’s the Real Reason Jason Momoa & Lisa Bonet Broke Up—This ‘Disaster’ Ended Their Marriage

Following the news of their shocking split, fans are wondering why Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet broke up after 16 years together. While the former couple didn’t personally divulge many details about the reason behind their split, it seems Bonet may have been dropping some subtle hints about the decision in an interview published just weeks before their announcement.

Bonet—who secretly tied the knot with Momoa in 2017 after more than a decade together—shares daughter Lola and son Nakoa-Wolf with the Aquaman star. The former couple announced their split in January 2022. In an Interview magazine feature published exactly a month before the pair revealed that they were going their separate ways, Bonet revealed that she was being called to pursue “new” things and learn to be “authentically” herself.

When asked by Spider-Man: Homecoming actress Marisa Tomei if anything was “calling” to her, the Cosby Show alum replied, “Definitely learning how to be authentically me, learning to be new, and following this invitation from the universe to step into this river of uncertainty. We’ve eliminated all this extra noise, and now it’s time to grow our roots deeper into our own values.”

Bonet went on to echo comments made in her announcement post with Momoa, noting that she felt the “squeeze” of the times we’re living in today. “The revolution is definitely here and we’re all feeling the squeeze. If you aren’t, you’re in total denial, and the more you resist, the more you will suffer,” Bonet said. “Everything is crumbling out there. The personal work is understanding where empire and those archetypes live within us. The revolution is on the inside, and learning to be new in this new world.”

Why did Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet break up? A source told People on January 18, 2022, that Bonet and Momoa’s break up wasn’t “overnight.” “[They] were amazing for years, until they no longer were,” the insider said. “They have grown apart because of different focuses.”

According to the insider, part of the reason for Momoa and Bonet’s split was the Aquaman star’s rising career. “A few years ago, Jason was struggling to find work. Now his career is booming. And he wants to keep working as much as he can,” the source said. The source went on to add that Bonet “has had no interest in joining” Momoa “on every location” he films at. The insider continued, “She enjoys her life in L.A.” The source also confirmed that distance was the main reason for Momoa and Bonet’s relationship ended. “It’s been difficult for them to be apart,” the insider said. “For some people, it might strengthen their marriage. For Lisa and Jason’s marriage, being apart has been a disaster.”

As for their kids, the source noted that Momoa and Bonet are “mature” and “will keep the peace” for the sake of their son and daughter. “It’s not going to be some scandalous divorce where they trash talk each other,” the source said. “They are both very spiritual and believe in a higher power.”

Louie Anderson

I’m watching last night’s Conan. Louie is on. I looked him up on Wikipedia to see if he’s ever acknowledged being gay (he has not). Louie said he started the pandemic weighing about 380 and has gotten down to 340. He would like to get his weight down to 275.

What I thought was really interesting is that despite being the second youngest of 11 children, he revealed in 2016 on Marc Maron’s podcast that his mother gave birth to 16 children. The first child and then 2 sets of twins died in childbirth.

Also, in 1985 he was married to his high-school sweetheart for just 4 weeks.

Lastly, In 1997, Anderson was blackmailed by a man named Richard John Gordon. Gordon demanded money from Anderson, threatening to reveal to tabloids that Anderson reportedly sexually propositioned him in a casino in 1993.

Between 1997 and 1998, Anderson paid Gordon $100,000 in hush money, fearing the story would threaten his starring roles in two family-oriented series, but when Gordon's demands increased to $250,000 in 2000, Anderson's lawyer informed federal authorities. Gordon, who was 31 at the time, was arrested after leading FBI agents on a high-speed chase along Santa Monica Boulevard. Gordon was fined and sentenced to 21 months in prison.

NYT Says Everyone Is Gay On TikTok

Foster Van Lear, a 16-year-old TikTok personality from Atlanta, has posted videos of himself kissing guy friends on the cheek. “Everyone is fluid and so men have become less hesitant about physical stuff,” he said.Devin Oktar Yalkin for The New York Times Connor Robinson, a 17-year-old British TikTok star with rosy cheeks and a budding six-pack, has built a large following by keeping his fans thirsty. Between the daily drip of shirtless dance routines and skits about his floppy hair, Mr. Robinson posts sexually suggestive curve balls that, he said, “break some barriers.”

In an eight-second video set to a lewd hip-hop track by the Weeknd, he and a fellow teenage boy, Elijah Finney, who calls himself Elijah Elliot, filmed themselves in a London hotel room, grinding against each other as if they’re about to engage in a passionate make-out session. The video ends with Mr. Robinson pushed against the tiled wall.

But as racy as the video is, fans are under no pretense that the two are in the throes of gay puppy love. Mr. Robinson and Mr. Finney identify as heterosexual, but as some TikTok influencers have discovered, man-on-man action is a surefire way to generate traffic. Uploaded in February, the video has gotten more than 2.2 million views and 31,000 comments (lots of fire and heart emojis).

“Normally, I do jokey dance videos and stuff like that, but it seems like things have kind of changed now,” Mr. Robinson said from his bedroom in Cumbria, England, which is painted forest green to stand out on TikTok. He estimates that 90 percent of his nearly one million followers are female. “Girls are attracted to two attractive guy TikTokers with massive followings showing a sexual side with each other,” he said.

Connor Robinson, left, a British TikTok star, posted this racy video with Elijah Elliot on his feed in February.   Gay and bi-curious male followers are welcome, too. “If watching my videos makes you happy and stuff, that’s cool,” he added. As devotees of TikTok’s young male stars know, Mr. Robinson’s hotel seduction video is veering toward becoming a modern-day cliché. The youth-oriented social media platform is rife with videos showing ostensibly heterosexual young men spooning in cuddle-puddle formation, cruising each other on the street while walking with their girlfriends, sharing a bed, going in for a kiss, admiring each other’s chiseled physiques and engaging in countless other homoerotic situations served up for humor and, ultimately, views.

Feigning gay as a form of clickbait is not limited to small-fry TikTok creators trying to grow their audience. Just look at the hard-partying Sway Boys, who made national headlines this summer for throwing raucous get-togethers at their 7,800-square-foot Bel Air estate in violation of Los Angeles’s coronavirus guidelines.Scrolling through the TikTok feeds of the group’s physically buff members can feel as if you’re witnessing what would happen if the boys of Tiger Beat spent an uninhibited summer in Fire Island Pines. There is a barrage of sweaty half-naked workouts, penis jokes, playful kisses and lollipop sharing.

Indian couples distraught over having to cut wedding guest lists of 600

"Until 28 December, Heena Vashisht was a happy bride-to-be. The 28-year-old was pleased her family had put in place early all the arrangements for her wedding on 10 February, right down to the last candle. But her plans have been shredded by India’s Omicron surge. The nuptials can go ahead in New Delhi as planned, but only if she cuts her guest list down from 650 to 20.

“My own immediate family is 80. How can I reduce the guests to 20? The tension in my family is unbearable right now. No one knows what to do and my mother’s blood pressure has shot up with all the tension,” says Vashisht.

With India’s Omicron-driven third wave firmly under way, the New Delhi government has, along with other restrictions, limited wedding guests to 20, dealing a huge blow to India’s traditional wedding season, which runs from November to March."

Perhaps it's because I'm gay and don't really fetishize huge weddings, but I'm having a hard time feeling sympathy for them.

I hear so much about him but I've not heard any specific details of her situation. She signed a settlement with Jeffrey Epstein and she had years to go after Andrew. Are her allegations just that, or does anyone know what actual evidence she has, aside from a photo with him? Sometimes I wonder if some people accused of sexual abuse/harassment might, in fact, be innocent or at least innocent in the ways the abuse is claimed because we rarely hear about hard evidence, just supposition that eventually becomes guilt by default.

Model says she's too beautiful for love: “Men are 'scared' to date me”

We've recently heard stories from women who struggle to make friends because their beauty makes others jealous, as well as others who have found dating difficult thanks to their good looks.

But one 27-year-old model has insisted it is almost impossible for her to find a boyfriend, as men are often "intimidated" by her.

Elizabeth Marie Chevalier, from San Diego, California, USA, is a Playboy model who has also graced the pages and front covers of magazines such as MAXIM - but despite her stunning looks, she's been single for six months.

The beauty - who has over 2.9 million followers on her Instagram, @marieechev - split with her ex half a year ago and has now said her "intense personality" paired with her intimidatingly good looks has made it a nightmare for her to find a date.

She said: “I’ve been told that I’m intimidating to guys because I’m tall – I’m 5ft 10 – and I’m beautiful and I have a very intense personality.

"I’m actually very sweet and loving so if they took the time to get to know me they would realise that.

“I’ve been on dates where guys just can’t speak to me."

Elizabeth does get attention from men when she goes out on the town, but it's often from people who see her as a "trophy" rather than those who want to settle down with her.

She added: "The men that do chat me up are usually too cocky and self-obsessed, they clearly go for every pretty girl in the room. They see us as trophies.

“I would 100% date a fan but every time I’ve met a guy through my Instagram they have just treated me like a commodity. I know I wear a bikini online but it’s a job, most guys can’t see past that.

“Dating is hard – guys are scared because I'm so beautiful. I would totally let a friend set me up with someone. In fact, I would prefer it."

The model says her beauty has been a blessing and a curse throughout her life, as people often make snap decisions about her personality based on her looks.

And it's not just men that find Elizabeth intimidating - the beauty also says women can sometimes jump to conclusions about her intentions too.

She added: “I remember once being at a Halloween party and I was wearing a costume and I put my headdress down on a chair.

"This guy came over and told me he had been sitting there and his girlfriend saw him speaking to me and completely freaked out. She started screaming in my face and I’m not a confrontational person at all so I just ended up leaving.

“It was pretty crazy. If she knew me she would know I’m not like that at all – I would never steal someone else's man – but I find other women are always saying things behind my back.

"I think they're just jealous. I do find it hard to make new female friends but luckily I have a very solid group of girlfriends that have known me for years who I can count on."

When Elizabeth does find someone to settle down with, she's hoping he'll fit her idea of her dream man - tall, dark, and handsome, with green eyes.

She said: "My ideal man is someone who is the strong but silent type. I like the tall darker features, a handsome man. Age is not a problem to me nor is their job, as long as they are successful and passionate.

"He would just have to come up and say 'Hello beautiful can I ask you on a date?'. I like a guy who I very forward and knows what he wants."

Patrice Evra🗣”every ⚽️ club has gay players”

Evra, retired footballer for major English Premier League teams (notably Manchester United) and for the France national team, has recently come forward to speak about his experiences with negative attitude toward homosexuality in English football club dressing-rooms during the 2000s.

In an interview with French magazine LE PARISIEN, Evra revealed:

[quote] When I was in England, they brought someone to talk to the team (unspecified) about homosexuality. Some of my colleagues said, ‘It is against my religion, if there is a homosexual in this locker room, let him leave the club’ and other comments. At that time, I said, “Shut up!” I played with players who were gay. Face to face, they opened up with me because they were afraid to speak otherwise. There are approximately two players per club who are gay. But in the world of football, if you say so, it’s over.

Since Evra’s retirement around ten years ago, the Premier League has taken steps forward to encourage acceptance of sexualities, and has introduced numerous measures to foster an inclusive environment, the foremost of these measures being the Rainbow Laces campaign. The efficacy of these efforts must be questioned, however, when examining the current climate within the game around homosexuality—certain fans still shouting abuse from the stands, certain players publicly espousing homophobic attitudes, and most of all sponsors and owners supporting and taking money from homophobic organisations.

Lesser-known Caribbean destinations

However, Tulum is getting overrun and it's no longer quaint and charming. Too much loud music everywhere. Too many partiers. We want something a little more serene at this point.

We loved Tulum because it's a very short trip from Austin.

Unemployed Son Mooched Off Parents He Killed and Dismembered

In early 2021, Wisconsin man Chandler “Chaz” Michael Halderson, 23, appeared to be a pretty impressive guy, according to opening statements in his murder trial. He told family he was a college student about to graduate, he worked at an insurance company, he helped police as a scuba driver for a rescue team, and he just got hired to work for SpaceX, prosecutor William Brown told jurors on Tuesday.

It turned out to be an elaborate web of lies, the state said. This all fell apart after the defendant’s father Bart Halderson, 50, found out he was not even going to school, the prosecutor said. “Chaz” shot his dad in the back, murdered his mother Krista Halderson, 53, when she returned home, and discarded their dismembered body parts throughout southern Wisconsin, Brown said. Then he reported them missing, telling a story about them going hours up north to their cabin, the prosecutor said . . .

I'd pay $2 to hear the details of this dick breaking.. question six.

I'd pay $4 to watch Jason fuck Seth hard enough to try to break it again. A collab while both of our 40-somethings are in PV for your OF, Jason? Oh Sorry, Jason, you're the only one in his 40's - 41, right? Seth is a few hours younger than 38. Seth's Peter Pan Syndrome he's been loved and identified with for having by his group of ahem much older, wealthier, successful (well, truth) twink-loving friends is upon a new chapter in his book of twinkdom's opportunity, somethings Jason and Seth certainly bonded over. Maybe if they combine their forces they can land ONE successful daddy for them both? What a tragic story. Two over-the-hill users with nothing to use each other for. Especailly when one of those things just breaks during sex.

Mom Allegedly Faked 12-Year-Old Autistic Son's Death & Left Him Stranded In Motel Room Alone

A woman in Tennessee was arrested after allegedly faking the death of her 12-year-old autistic son and reportedly leaving him in a motel room.

The woman, who police identified as 39-year-old Vanessa Blanchard, is facing charges in the city of Clarksville, Tennessee for contributing to the delinquency of a minor and giving a “false impression of death” according to local TV news reports.

According to an arrest warrant in the case first obtained by local outlet WKRN, Blanchard was first approached in late October by a school resource officer from her son’s middle school who was inquiring about his absence from class. At that point, Blanchard allegedly told the officer that her son “died from a seizure two days earlier.”

Now, police know that was not the case, but at the time, the news stunned the boy’s classmates. A parent of another student in the class, Alicia Maslo, explained how awful the (now known as false) report of the child’s death was for the other kids:

“The kids were so upset the teachers were crying on the phone to the parent. My son came home bawling his eyes out, hugging me, talking about how he couldn’t believe he was gone. He was like, ‘I just saw him, I don’t understand why he’s gone.'”

OMG…

After the school heard about the boy’s alleged death, his classmates started to raise money to pay for his funeral at a local mortuary. School officials eventually contacted the funeral home to donate the funds, but Blanchard’s ruse was discovered after the funeral home reported they had never heard of the boy, and no funeral arrangements had been made. The school supposedly then reached out to Blanchard, who told them that the boy’s autopsy was “still pending.”

The case came to a head more than two weeks later, on November 16, when the boy’s school-issued laptop was discovered to be active at a local motel in the Clarksville area. When police arrived at the motel to see what was going on, they discovered the boy alive and alone inside a motel room, according to WSMV.

Indiegays, why didn't you tell me about Australia's Sarah Blasko?

Or, perhaps, judging by her low streaming numbers, you didn't know about her either. After going down a random music video rabbit hole, the YouTube algorithm Gods served me a couple of Sarah Blasko tracks and I am HOOKED. She seems to have had an acclaimed indie/alternative career in Australia since the late 90s (her solo career starting in the early 2000s.) I would say fans of PJ Harvey, Florence and the Machine, Cat Power, Goldfrapp, Earlier Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Nick Cave would enjoy her sound. I haven't listened to music on traditional terrestrial radio in years -- but I imagine she'd be played on the likes of LA's KCRW, Minneapolis' The Current, Seattle's KEXP etc.

The 6 or7 songs I've heard thus far from her most recent album Depth of Field, are gems -- she has a keen sense of melody (these aren't 'difficult' tracks) combining undeniable pop hooks, slinky, atmospheric glam production, a dark melancholy-on-the-dancefloor undercurrent and all surrounding a really captivating, slightly smoky voice.

Reviewer TRASHES "Superman and Lois" before it even premieres!

Having already plumbed the depths of the Superman well for “Smallville,” which survived the demise of the WB network to run for a full decade, The CW’s gone back to its Kansan/Kryptonian roots for “Superman and Lois,” a strangely grim take on one of comics’ brightest heroes.

From Greg Berlanti and Todd Helbing (“The Flash”), “Superman and Lois” dispenses with the Superman story that’s been told a million times before in an efficient opening voiceover, as Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) explains his arrival on Earth in a mysterious pod, growing up in Smallville as Clark Kent, and falling in love with Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tullock) in about two minutes flat. But then the story continues as Clark and Lois get married, settle in Metropolis, and have twin boys.

“Superman and Lois” officially picks up with the family 14 years later, when Lois is “the most famous journalist in the world,” Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) has established himself as an emerging football star and Jordan (Alex Garfin) is struggling with his social anxiety disorder diagnosis. Even Smallville, once idyllic, has become something of a symbol of everything that’s gone awry in small rural towns across America, with a rampant meth problem no one really wants to talk about and a charismatic businessman (Adam Rayner) promising everyone jobs despite essentially gutting other towns for profit before.

It makes sense on paper for a new show about Superman to fast forward through the stuff that’s been done to death in order to find some new way into the man, the myth, the legend. Why not make him a harried dad juggling apocalyptic threats with teenage boys, one of whom might have the same kind of powers as he does? The CW’s dads are already supernaturally hot, so hey, might as well lean into the brand. (Hoechlin, like Tom Welling before him, does not at all have a Christopher Reeve level of charisma to bring to the role — but to be fair, who does?)

But for all the logical storylines and character journeys that “Superman and Lois” includes, it nonetheless lacks the spark to make any of it very interesting. Despite solid efforts from Tulloch, Garfin, and especially Elsass to bring life to their stiff scenes, these Kents feel more stuck than striking. It also probably says something that it took looking up the credits for me to realize that Emanuelle Chriqui is playing none other than Lana Lang; on “Superman and Lois,” she’s a stressed out loan officer whose determinedly macho fire chief husband (Erik Valdezchecks ) takes up most of their scenes’ oxygen.

It’s also notable, and unfortunate, that the equal footing Superman and Lois are granted in the title isn’t reflected in the show itself. Lois Lane is supposedly a fearsome reporter who won’t rest until she gets her scoop, but this iteration takes longer than it should to make her anything other than reactive to what’s going on with the men around her. For as much as Clark and Lois talk about being equal partners, “Superman and Lois” squarely belongs to Superman, who spends enough of his time blinking at his family in handsome concern and darting around the stratosphere that he can never fully anchor his family, let alone this show.

Billy Bush was LIVID not to be featured in Today’s 70th anniversary video

TV personality Billy Bush is "livid" at being excluded from a video montage marking the 70th anniversary of NBC's "Today" that aired on Friday, the New York Post reported.

Bush featured in the notorious Trump pussy tape. In one widely-cited phrase Trump said he would not bother to see if women were interested in him but "grab 'em by the pussy."

"When you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything," he also said.

The release of the tape threatened to derail Trump's campaign, but he survived the scandal and was elected to the presidency.

However Bush's career at NBC did not last. He was axed as a host of its "Today" show, where he had worked for only two months, after the scandal broke.

Per the New York Post, Try Bush’s Baked Beans. Roll that beautiful bean footage. Bush was upset that he was not in the video while presenter Matt Lauer, who was fired after being accused of sexual assault in 2017, does briefly feature.

"Billy was livid they included everyone except him," a source close to Bush told the tabloid. "When they chose to include Matt Lauer — who was accused of anally raping a young staff member while on a work trip — but chose not to include Billy, you know something is very wrong."

A former colleague, Brook Nevils, was identified as Lauer's accuser by Ronan Farrow in a 2019 book, with Nevils alleging that Lauer raped her on a work trip in Sochi, Russia, in 2014.

Lauer had worked as an anchor on "Today" for 20 years before he was fired, and denied the allegations.

The nephew of former president George HW Bush, Bush now hosts "Extra" on Fox.

Indiana Pastor fired after appearing on HBO Drag Show "We're Here"

NEW YORK (AP) — The Rev. Craig Duke has been a Methodist minister for three decades, building a reputation as a staunch advocate of LGBTQ inclusion. His pastoral duties have now been terminated — the result of a bitter rift surfacing in his Indiana church after he sought to demonstrate solidarity by appearing in drag alongside prominent drag queens in the HBO reality series “We’re Here.”

Duke, 62, said he thought most of his 400-member congregation at Newburgh United Methodist Church shared his inclusive views, and he was taken aback when a prominent congregation member, soon backed by other churchgoers, circulated emails attacking him.

“You have thrown NUMC under the bus to elevate a minority of individuals,” said one of the emails. Another, according to Duke, said Satan must be pleased with the discord over LGBTQ rights.

Duke, who declined to identify his chief critics, told The Associated Press that the attacks “felt very personal,” causing him to worry about his mental health.

“It was a matter of sadness and disappointment and heartbreak on my part ... realizing I was losing the ability to lead,” he said.

Under United Methodist Church protocol, a pastor does not have the option of resigning, but Duke said he made clear to his immediate superior, regional superintendent Mitch Gieselman, that he needed to step away.

On Nov. 26, Gieselman — who had been hearing from the pastor’s critics and supporters — sent a letter to the NUMC congregation announcing that Duke “is being relieved of his pastoral duties.”

Through the next three months, Duke said he and his wife will be allowed to continue living in the NUMC parsonage, while he incurs a 40% pay cut. They must relocate no later than Feb. 28, when his pay will be halted, Gieselman said.

While Gieselman noted in his letter than Duke’s actions had “polarized” the congregation, he said none of those actions constituted formal violations of UMC’s Book of Discipline, which functions as a legal code for Methodist clergy.

“I was bullied out,” Duke said.

The episode of “We’re Here” featuring Duke — at one point shown in a dress, high-heeled boots, a pink wig and heavy make-up — was taped in July but did not air until Nov. 8.

Duke was invited to participate in the show by an LGBTQ Pride group in nearby Evansville and accepted in part to show support for his 23-year-old daughter, Tiffany, who identifies as pansexual.

The premise of “We’re Here,” an Emmy-nominated series now in its second season, is that three renowned drag performers travel to towns and small cities across the U.S., recruiting a few locals to join them as drag queens.

Even before the episode was broadcast, some congregation members complained that Duke hadn’t given them advance notice of his decision to be in the show, which included scenes filmed at the church. In response, Duke wrote to the congregation in August, saying he was sorry that trust in his leadership had been damaged.

But he defended his motives, saying, “I was willing and excited to share God’s love with the LGBTQ community on a national level.”

Any hope that conflict would subside vanished in mid-November when the emails attacking him began to circulate.

The rift within Duke’s congregation reflects broader divisions within the United Methodist Church, the largest mainline Protestant denomination in the United States.

Conservative leaders in the UMC have unveiled plans to form a new denomination, the Global Methodist Church, with a doctrine that does not recognize same-sex marriage. The move could hasten the long-expected breakup of the UMC over differing approaches to LGBTQ inclusion, including whether LGBTQ people should be ordained as clergy.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the UMC’s General Conference — at which the schism would be debated — has been postponed for two consecutive years and is now scheduled for August 2022 in Minneapolis.

According to Duke, one of the reasons he was invited to appear on “We’re Here” was because of the divisions in both his own church and the UMC.

“3 In The Attic” (1968) - have you seen it?

I just rewatched “Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood” and Cliff Booth is watching TV in his trailer when the commercial for “3 In The Attic” comes on. I decided to look it up and it’s available on Paramount+, and I’m loving it. It’s almost like a time capsule from 1968, and ahead of its time.

The synopsis

“When three coeds discover that the campus Casanova is dating them all at once, they lock him up in an attic and take turns having sex with him... to drain the stud of his potency.”

It’s very interesting, especially because in 1968 the censors had just changed so this film would have been banned just a short few years prior because of its salacious subject, as well as an interracial hookup.

It’s an interesting watch.

Aspects of gay culture that you dislike irrationally

Open relationships: Yes I know straight people have open relationships. But it is not as ubiquitous among them. I just recently started dating after a toxic relationship ended years ago. One of the reasons I called it off was my ex wanted to invite others in our bed. Maybe I am old fashioned or outdated, but I was raised to believe a monogamous relationship was the best. Also a monogamous relationship is safe, healthy, and another manner of bonding. But on dating apps, out at gay events, and et al, I constantly meet people who openly talk about their open relationships. Is sex so important? Isn’t that rather childish? And what sort of relationship is based on the ability to cheat? Once you cheat at one thing isn’t it easier to cheat in some other way?

Where the Boys Are (1960): Catching up with the Four Leads

When MGM put four young starlets together, who knew they would have such long and winding careers...of the four girls, I think it is fair to say that Yvette Mimieux fared the best financially (still married to Oakwood CEO Howard Ruby...their Bel Air manse hit the market recently), Dolores Hart spiritually (still a nun), Paula Prentiss romantically (still with Richard Benjamin, married 60 years this Autumn), and Connie Francis suffered the most (raped, assaulted, addicted to painkillers, lost her voice, brother murdered, manic depressive, psychiatric hospitals, suicide attempts, four marriages, lawsuits, and so much more).

Armchair Diagnosis

It's 3AM

You're working in psychiatric intake.

It's a small lobby with two waiting areas

one in front of the main desk and one behind it surrounded by plexiglass.. off to its side is a hallway with isolation cells and a security office.

You've got three clients and you've got 72 hours before either you boot them upstairs, contact other social services (police, homeless, etc) or bloody kick them out. There's only one coveted spot available upstairs.

You have to make a preliminary diagnosis to justify keeping one for extended observation by the mds above,

justify sending another to social services or jail

and finally covering yourself legally with the third you release

In recap,: One is a more immediate threat to themselves or others, or otherwise has a high risk potential

One possibly has another agenda in seeking hospitalization - ranging from anything to looking for a place to crash, escaping consequences of some sort or trying to get a pay off, i.e. welfare/disability/lawsuit scam. Maybe fishing for drugs or who knows but too spot on, suspicious (checking all the boxes in a textbook fashion or otherwise too stereotypical and over the top like making poo dolls and talking to them) to qualify for an emergency hold and would be better handled by other services to determine what those needs might be.

The final might just be an addict or partier that will stabilize once they sober up. Perhaps even a possible trauma but just in temporary shock. High stress (school/job/family) breakdown. They could have some underlining mental health issues but there's other circumstances or factors that are exaggerating symptoms right now and their issues could be managed with outpatient care.

Can't tell if my friend is closeted or asexual

I've been friends with him since high school. We are in our early 30s, from a semi-conservative suburban town. He makes good money but still lives with his parents. Everyone thought he was gay in hs, and he's never had any love interest (or even potential love interest) that he's talked about. Our friend group hasn't asked him about dating in years, but we all whisper to each other wondering what's up. Some in the group wonder if he's asexual, but me and the other gay guy in the group think he's severely closeted. I just want him to be happy, and he seems happy enough, but it's hard to have a real conversation with him because it feels like we're restricted to certain topics. Definitely feels like there's a wall put up, so we aren't really that close anymore. Am I a bad gay for not investigating more and finding a way to help him? Or should I just assume he's asexual/that his love life isn't my problem?

The Buy Nothing Project

So there's this little movement called Buy Nothing, and the idea is to create a 'gift economy' where within the group, things are only given for free and taken, and there is no commerce.

It relies on Facebook groups to function. You go to the Buy Nothing website and entire your zip code, and you'll be given a Facebook group to join in your neighborhood. Each "Buy Nothing Group" on Facebook then operates pretty much independently, with the help of rotating volunteer moderators from the group.

Then, members can post 3 different types of posts:

1. GIVE - A "give" post is just that. You are offering an item completely for free. There is no expectation that the item be of a certain quality, but generally speaking, people offer items that are in working order and in decent reusable shape - otherwise what's the point. Most people simply leave the item on their porch to be picked up within a certain window of time.

2. ASK - if there's something you need, you can simply ask for it. Post that you need a single 60 watt old-school light bulb and someone will definitely have one or something very close. Post that you need old sheets for a craft project, and you'll get old sheets in spades. There aren't quite as many of the "ask" posts as there are gives.

3. GRATITUDE - you can post to thank someone for a great "give" or something else they did for you. These are much more rare, but they are allowed.

I highly recommend it. I've gotten a fantastic almost-new microwave when I would've gone out and bought one, an area rug that I absolutely love, and a little chopper thing I use in the kitchen all the time. I've given away much more because there are people in need in every neighborhood, and it feels great to give a specific thing to someone who can use it. I see women giving away fabulous bags and accessories and such. Car batteries. Cute vintage lawn chairs. You name it.

There are threads all the time about saving money and making things go further, etc. Try Buy Nothing as a way to bypass the Big Box/Amazon economy when you can.

Be honest. What do you do when you encounter a woman, or other person with Danger Hair? This is hair dyed in zany, toxic colours, most typically green, but also regularly blue or wild unnatural reds. Anything that looks like it's come out of a barrel of toxic chemicals. It's called Danger Hair because it supposedly mimics nature in marking something poisonous with bright colours; ie insects that contain toxins. This is meant to ward off other creatures. The whole concept of Danger Hair plays on the notion that many of these people are perceived to be insane, irrational or obnoxious. I will admit that Danger Hair sends me running. It's so associated with insane behaviour and delusions.

Share your tips (ugh, "life hacks") with your fellow DLers

Mine: I keep my car parked outside and it has a rack on the top. When it snows, I take contractor garbage bags which I cut along the sides to make one long piece. I drape two bags over the roof and rack and tuck the ends into the doors to hold them in place. And I raise the hood and put a third one over it and tuck the ends inside before closing the hood. I also have one of those windshield covers. I take a bristle broom and shove the snow off the bags (not worrying that I will scratch the paint, because the bags are there). Then I remove the bags and the car is cleaned off.

It sounds complicated, but it takes me about 3 minutes to place the bags and about 3 minutes to clear the car of snow. And I don't have to worry about the snow that is much harder to remove because of the rack (and I don't have to worry about leaving it there and seeing it fly off in giant chunks while I'm driving).

I re-use the bags, so there's no waste.

University of Michigan Fires Its President Over Inappropriate Relationship

The president of the University of Michigan, Mark S. Schlissel, has been fired for having a relationship with a subordinate that the university’s Board of Regents said violated university policy and was carried out “in a manner inconsistent with the dignity and reputation of the university.”

The board terminated Dr. Schlissel’s employment effective immediately after a special meeting on Saturday, ordering him to return all university property and canceling an agreement that would have continued paying him his base salary of $927,000 for two years after his contract was supposed to end in 2023.

The board named a former president, Mary Sue Coleman, as interim president.

In a letter to Dr. Schlissel on Saturday informing him that he was being fired, the board said that it had received an anonymous complaint on Dec. 8 that Dr. Schlissel had been involved in an inappropriate sexual affair with a subordinate.

“There can be no question that you were acutely aware that any inappropriate conduct or communication between you and a subordinate would cause substantial harm to the dignity and reputation of the University of Michigan,” the letter said.

Allegations of sexual misconduct in academia are not rare, but they more commonly involve students and professors, not university presidents. Dr. Schlissel’s firing is notable because it involved the leader of one of the country’s most prestigious universities.

Dr. Schlissel, who is married and has four grown children, according to his university biography as of Jan. 1, could not be reached for comment.

The investigation found that Dr. Schlissel had sent dozens of emails to the employee from his university account over several years. The board posted 118 pages of those messages on the university website in the interest, it said, of full disclosure.

In one email exchange on July 1 that was cited by the board, the employee said that her “heart hurts,” and Dr. Schlissel replied, “i know. mine too.”

The email finished with Dr. Schlissel saying, “I still wish I were strong enough to find a way.”

The emails continued, and in November, Dr. Schlissel wrote to the subordinate that he was disappointed that he might not be sitting next to her at a University of Michigan basketball game. He wrote, “the only reason I agreed to go was to go with you.”

The emails used “inappropriate tone and inappropriate language,” the letter from the Board of Regents said, and showed that Dr. Schlissel had used official business to carry out the relationship. Dr. Schlissel’s conduct was “particularly egregious” because he had taken a public position against sexual harassment, the board said.

After a provost, Martin Philbert, was accused of sexual misconduct, Dr. Schlissel had sent a letter in August 2020 to the university saying that “the highest priority” was to make the university “safe for all,” the Board of Regents’ letter noted. Mr. Philbert left the school.

I had no idea about Queen Liliuokalani from Hawaii

[quote]Today in 1893, Hawaii's monarchy is overthrown when a group of businessmen and sugar planters forced Queen Liliuokalani to abdicate. The coup led to the dissolving of the Kingdom of Hawaii 2 years later, its annexation as a U.S. territory, & eventual admission as the 50th state.

As Australian I am aware about my own country’s colonial past but little clue about the annexation of Hawai’i by the USA. It’s like America succeeded doing what England was aiming for in India but couldn’t because of the vast population. It’s a surprisingly recent, tragic story.

‘Old, impotent, fat, feeble... with a tiny penis’

Edmund White's new novel gains not exactly a rave in the London Telegraph.

"The main character is a Sicilian aristocrat called Ruggero, whose name translates as “famous spear”. Sure enough, he’s possessed of an uncommonly large penis.... Most detailed of all is the affair Ruggero had in 2018 with the “ridiculously prolific… gay novelist” Edmund White .... The sex scenes that follow confirm White’s fondness for lurid masochism... Such masochism perhaps extends to White’s description of his 78-year-old self as “old, impotent, fat, feeble”, with an “overly inflected ‘gay’ voice” and a “tiny penis”....So what, you may be wondering, did Ruggero see in him? The answer is never clear. Then again, it’s by no means the only question that this strange and perplexing novel leaves dangling."

Trannies Are Now Trans-Animals

Naia Ōkami (born 1994) is a transgender British Columbia wolf and red fox therianthrope. She is the founder and current administrator of Kinmunity.

Otherkin Community History

From a young age, Ōkami felt that she was "not human" on the inside. After watching the anime series Wolf's Rain at age twelve, she gained a fascination with wolves and as she read more about them and began to understand them, she began feeling as if she were "a wolf in a human body".

Ōkami first entered the online therian community through the now-defunct WereNet. She "didn't find werelist members to be the friendliest bunch" and ended up migrating to Werelist where she eventually became a docent staff member. In October of 2011, Ōkami founded the Wulf Howl otherkin community. She later founded Kinmunity in December of 2014, followed by Wolf Howl in 2020.

In February 2021, Naia confirmed that she was hellhound kin.

LGBTQ activist who took on Florida anti-gay marriage ban found dead in landfill

Sad.

Detectives are investigating the death of Jorge Diaz-Johnston, who took on Florida’s anti-gay marriage ban and won a landmark same-sex marriage case in Miami-Dade County.

After vanishing on Jan. 3 from Tallahassee, detectives found him dead in a landfill on Saturday morning in Jackson County. He was 54.

Diaz-Johnson is survived by his husband, Don Johnston, and his brother Manny Diaz, the former mayor of Miami.

“He touched so many people with his kind and generous heart,” Johnson wrote on Facebook.

Diaz released a statement saying in part, “My brother was such a special gift to this world whose heart and legacy will continue to live on for generations to come.”

Detectives are asking anyone with information about the homicide to call 1-850-891-4200.

Diaz complete statement

I am profoundly appreciative of the outpouring of support shown to me, my brother-in-law Don, and my family after the loss of my brother, Jorge Diaz-Johnston.

My brother was such a special gift to this world whose heart and legacy will continue to live on for generations to come. I am also so very grateful to the Tallahassee Police Department- with the support of Mayor Daley and City Manager Reed- who have worked tirelessly to locate and investigate the circumstances surrounding my brother’s disappearance.

Their commitment has meant the world to my family and will continue to mean the world in our search for justice. We kindly ask for privacy and continued prayers.

Anti-vax Czech folk singer dies after deliberately catching Covid

An anti-vax Czech folk singer has died after deliberately catching Covid to obtain a health pass to allow her to visit the sauna and theatre.

Hana Horka, the vocalist for the band Asonance, died on Sunday after contracting the Delta variant at the age of 57, according to her son Jan Rek.

She voluntarily exposed herself to the virus when her husband and son, both vaccinated, caught it before Christmas, Rek told public radio iRozhlas.cz.

Proof of vaccination or a recent infection is required to access cultural and sports facilities as well as for travel and for visiting bars and restaurants in the EU member state, which is facing a soaring Covid count.

Jan said: 'She decided to continue to live normally with us and preferred to catch the disease than to get vaccinated.'

Two days before her death, Horka took to social media to say: 'I survived... It was intense.

'So now there will be the theatre, sauna, a concert... and an urgent trip to the sea,' she added.

Horka went for a walk outside but when she returned she started to complain about back pain and soon after, died choking in her bed, her son said.

Rek blamed the death on a local anti-vax movement, saying its leaders had brainwashed his mother against vaccination and had 'blood on their hands'.

'I know exactly who influenced her... It makes me sad that she believed strangers more than her proper family,' Rek said.

'It wasn't just total disinformation but also views on natural immunity and antibodies acquired through infection,' he added.

The country of 10.7 million people announced more than 20,000 new Covid infections on Tuesday.

NYT Accused of Homophobia

This sentence about the Atlantis Gay Cruise amid Omnicron

“It’s time to start living our lives again and vaccines and tests allow us to do that. This isn’t Covid 2020,” said Andre Mayer, a graphic designer from Germany who paid more than $4,000 for the weeklong cruise on board Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas. “This is going to be the wildest party for our community in two years. I’m talking dirty dancing, sex, drugs, raves, orgies and sweet, sweet freedom.”

Gay men are OUTRAGED over being stereotyped like that

"The author of this article, ironically, has in her bio that she fought for gender equality issues in Turkey. How ironic that she doesn't understand how her article is slanderous towards gay men," writes Darren in a long post.

Another — Danielle — says she works for a cruise company and disputed the Times reporting.

"This article is garbage, because without the homophobic 'gay' sensationalist clickbait it wouldn't have been published. As someone who works on cruises I can attest that all the cruise lines are sailing with thousands of guests, and all are vaccinated and tested as is the crew. The ratio of Covid cases to guest counts is remarkably small (on a Christmas cruise I was on there were 1500 guests and 3 Covid cases). Cruises are doing a great job considering the nature of their business. The only reason this article exists is to have mention of orgies and drug taking. How about writing about the heterosexual swinger's cruise I worked on in October, on the same ship, which is far more "debauched" than a gay cruise? No? Didn't think so."

A Times reader named S.S. writes: "As a gay man, I'm personally perturbed by this portrayal of gay people - and the quote below from Andre Mayer, a self-appointed spokesperson for the gay "community", is most repulsive !"

Anon wrote a pointed response: "What happened to the woke N.Y. Times (or are gay males now part of white male supremacy and thus good targets for its wrath)? This coverage reminds me of early coverage of AIDS as the "gay plague." Thanks for pointing out that gatherings of gay men are not necessarily orgies. Who even thinks like that anymore? Your reporter, I guess."

Paul writes: "You've just given Fox News their next homophobic story, complete with graphic quotes about "the decadent gay lifestyle" that Democrats are plotting for the viewers' children and grandchildren . . . thanks NYT!"

Times reader Whaaa? asks, "Seriously, NYT? This is not newsworthy in mid-pandemic-omicron-surge-governors-banning-mask-mandates-jam-packed-school-cafeteria-petri-dish America.

"Nor does it have anything, except coincidence, to do with gay culture, and so your title is, as others have pointed out, nothing but cheap (or expensive, as the case may be — I don't know what what the per-word rate or writer salaries are these days) clickbait. Homophobia-promoting clickbait, at that."

David M was confused as to the writer's intent: "I'm not clear what novel insight about the pandemic the writer was attempting to convey with this article. The risks of taking a cruise are well known and have been previously publicized. How safe is any cruise with 5,500 passengers? What about a Disney cruise with unvaccinated three and four year olds running around? This reads like cheap sensational reporting. Disappointing, NYTimes."

And a Times reader named BigGuy offered a reality check to the pic (one from Atlantis) used in the story:

"A man like the fellow in the photo does NOT buy a ticket for a cruise. A man who desires his company buys the ticket. I'm 66, 5'8", and 345 pounds with a 58" waist. Many, many more men aboard look like me than look like him."

Executive Order Number Two to empower Virginia parents in their children’s education and upbringing by allowing parents to make decisions on whether their child wears a mask in school. - He's making it okay for the parents of one child to infect an entire school building with hundreds of other students; also, undermining the authority of 133 local School Boards.

Executive Order Number Three to restore integrity and confidence in the Parole Board of the Commonwealth of Virginia. - If you're Black, don't plan on being released any time soon . . .

Executive Order Number Four to investigate wrongdoing in Loudoun County. - He's not even making a secret of the fact he's now using his new Office to go after his political enemies.

Executive Order Number Nine to withdraw from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). - He really is a brain-dead A$$H0LE intent on killing us all.

That he was foolish enough to cheat on Jen with AJ, publicly lie about it, have six kids with her and then eventually marry her shortly before being brutally dumped and labelled an abuser after a decade and a half or however long

That he put up with AJ's shit for soooo long and even married her. If she's batshit crazy, what does that make him?

Jenna Jameson loses ability to walk, diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome.

Jenna Jameson is in the hospital and unable to walk after being diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome.

Over the weekend, Jameson’s partner, Lior Bitton — with whom she shares 4-year-old daughter Batel Lu — revealed on Instagram that she was in the hospital undergoing tests after “not feeling so good.”

The ex-porn star had been throwing up for two weeks before going to the hospital last week, only to be sent home, Bitton explained.

“Then she came back home and she couldn’t carry herself,” Bitton said in a video on Saturday. “Her muscles in her legs were very weak. So she wasn’t able to walk to the bathroom. She was falling on the way back or to the bathroom, I would have to pick her up and carry her to bed. And then within two days, it got really not so good, her legs started to not hold her, she wasn’t able to walk.” The Israeli businessman took Jameson back to a hospital, where more testing occurred and it was determined that she was suffering from Guillain-Barré syndrome.

According to the CDC, it is a “rare, autoimmune disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.” The symptoms can last from weeks to several years. Most fully recover but some have permanent nerve damage.

In an Instagram Story, Bitton announced that Jameson was being given a high dose of immunoglobulin therapy.

“She’s doing physical therapy to try and stand on her legs, but at the moment she cannot stand on her legs. They’re starting the treatment so they’ll see how it goes. So keep praying.”

On Monday, Jameson posted a video confirming her diagnosis, thanking fans for their good wishes before writing: “I did NOT get the jab or any jab. This is NOT a reaction to the jab. Thank you for your concern.” (Jameson has previously espoused anti-vaccine views on her social media.)

Animal shelters flooded with donations in honor of Betty White's 100th birthday

Animal shelters flooded with donations in honor of Betty White's birthday

By Caitlin O'Kane

Updated on: January 18, 2022 / 4:17 PM / CBS News

Betty White would have been 100 – and proud – Monday when fans flooded animal groups with donations in her honor. The donations were encouraged by the popular "Betty White Challenge" on social media, which asked fans to donate to shelters on January 17, what would have been the animal-loving star's 100th birthday.

White, who died just shy of her birthday, was an animal activist and a volunteer and board member of American Humane, the first national humane organization in the U.S. and the largest certifier of animal welfare in the world. Web traffic and donations supporting American Humane have quadrupled since White died in December, a spokesperson for the organization told CBS News.

In Boston, the Newhouse Wildlife Rescue in Chelmsford said it was "blown away" after $17,000 was donated on White's birthday. The group, which helps rehabilitate orphaned or injured local wildlife, now has the funds needed "to prepare for the coming baby season and the orphans that will flood through our doors," they wrote on Facebook.

Another animal group in Boston, MSPCA-Angell, set a goal of donating 100,000 pet meals to those in need of assistance during January. Thanks to donations, the veterinary and advocacy group has already distributed 101,172 pet meals and counting.

Pawfect Life Rescue, another local animal rescue in Massachusetts, set a goal of raising $3,000 and raised more than $8,000. Several other groups in the state also helped raise thousands of dollars in White's honor, according to CBS Boston.

And it wasn't just Massachusetts shelters and animal groups that reported an influx of donations on January 17. Dog Days Rescue in Kennesaw, Georgia, said they received more than $4,000 in Betty White's name, founder Tina Lee told CBS affiliate WGCL.

FurKids, a dog shelter in Alpharetta, Georgia, received over $10,000 in donations for the Betty White Challenge, said Talley Davidson, social media marketing specialist with FurKids.

Nashville Humane said it raised $1,100 in just 17 minutes on Monday. At last count, more than $30,000 had been donated to the local animal protection group, according to CBS affiliate WTVF.

And in Kentucky, Ashland Animal Rescue Fund said they raised $5,100 so far – plus mail-in donations they have yet to count.

The Betty White Challenge even went international, with Calgary Humane Society in Canada raising a whopping $91,845.81 and counting. "We're speechless!" the organization wrote on Twitter. "Thank you for all the support! We know Betty White would be proud."

It wasn't just monetary donations that helped shelters. The San Diego Humane Society began waiving adoption fees for all adult animals with a hope of finding homes for 100 pets before January 17. They ended up adopting out 253 adult pets as of Monday afternoon.

CBS News has reached out to ASPCA, Animal Humane and other large animal organizations for comment and is awaiting response.

David Morris, porn actor, 1970s-1990s

Anybody remember him?

He was a secondary/character actor in mostly straight porn in the 70s and 80s, but some gay too. (most famous probably being Debbie Does Dallas, Insatiable, Aunt Peg, Blonde Ambition, and Centurions of Rome). In 1989 he was in The Night Boys with Melchor Diaz (hot gay porn star who died of AIDS a few years later). In the 90s he was doing mostly low budget gay and straight BDSM.

Barely any info online about him.

Born David J. Reingold on Jan. 9, 1952 in White Plains, NY Died: May 22, 1999 in Delray Beach, FL

The best personal info I found here on DL (thanks, whoever you are):

"...He was one that fell in to drug addiction, and contracted Hep C from his heroin use. He did a few gay movies and loops earlier in his career when he looked good, but did several after he got out of shape and always looked tired and sweaty near the end of his career. He ended up dying in Florida in 1999 of a overdose."

"I heard that about Morris from a few other performers who worked with him and from a guy who is writing a book on the history of porn who has interviewed a lot of people from back then who are still alive and willing to talk. He was apparently a relatively intelligent guy also, so it's a shame his life ended the way it did. From the sleuth work you've done, it sounds like a few of his brothers have their share of issues too."

Me, I found info about his three brothers online (one is an ex NYPD cop accused of raping at least two women, another lives near St. Louis and was arrested on a drug charge, and another took over the old folks home business after the father died) but nothing about him.

I also contacted Rialto Report asking if they planned to do anything on him. They're reply: "We've spoken to many, many people who worked with him - and we always ask about what they remember about him. Without fail people have the same response - good looking, easy to work with, but kept himself to himself... and so was a bit of an enigma."

Know anything about him?

(Or how old were they when they adopted you?) I'd be interested to know whether the fact that your parents were older/younger had an impact on how you related to them.

My father was 42 when I was born and my mother was 37. I sometimes think that I might relate better to my father, in particular, if we were somewhat closer in age. For example, if my father had been 20 years old or so when I was born, maybe we would see eye-to-eye. It doesn't bother me but what's it been like for you?

Decimal Time

The concept of decimal time, wherein a day is broken down into multiples of 10.

By the eve of the French Revolution, the idea had evolved into a year split into 12 months of 30 days apiece.

That there are 365 days in a year is an immutable fact dictated by the movement of the Earth around our local star. So, 12 months of 30 days apiece resulted in 5 days (6 in a leap year!) left over. These, the revolutionaries reserved for national holidays.

Each week was divided into 10 days, every day was split into 10 equal hours, those were split into 100 minutes, with each minute divided into 100 seconds (roughly 1.5 times longer than conventional minutes) and each second into 1000 “tierces.” Individual tierces could also be divided into 1000 even tinier units, called “quatierces.”

Decimal time was formally adopted by National Convention decree in 1793, “The day, from midnight to midnight, is divided into ten parts, each part into ten others, and so forth until the smallest measurable portion of duration.” As such, midnight would be denoted as 00:00 while noon would be 5:00.

From 1929 to 1931...

...the Soviet Union mandated a five-day week, with each day designated by color as a state rest day for a different 20% of the workforce; families usually did not share rest days.

Three weeks a year were six or seven days, because interrupted by holidays. From 1931 to 1940, the Soviets mandated a six-day week, with state rest days for all upon the 6th, 12th, 18th, 24th, and 30th of each Gregorian month, as well as upon March 1.

This also necessitated varying weeks of five to seven days over the year.

Price gouging is not the same as inflation…

Yet all the corporate media is calling this “inflation” at the same time their sister companies are price gouging on everything.

Let’s set this narrative straight once and for all:

“What has gone underreported in the American press is that a significant amount of the inflation American households are experiencing is simply strategic behavior of businesses to increase prices in order to increase profits.”

Corporate America is making a cash grab during Covid. It’s not genuine inflation. There is no need for these price hikes. They have all amounted to pure profit.

Of it was inflation, then profits would be flat. Don’t fall for the big lie that this is monetary inflation when it’s clearly a cash grab/price gouging from corporate US.

Jodie Sweetin is marrying a BEAR! Jealous, bitches?

Jodie Sweetin is engaged!

The Full House star, who turns 40 on Jan. 19, revealed that boyfriend Mescal Wasilewski popped the question, posting a photo of the pair on Instagram on Monday in which Sweetin is sporting some serious bling on her ring finger.

The Hollywood Darlings star started out the sweet caption announcing the big news with a quote by Maya Angelou, writing, "In all the world there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world there is no love for you like mine."

"I love you Mescal, for always. You're my person. I can't wait to see the life that lies ahead for us," the caption continued. "Here's to us, @ghostfacelito and our life of adventures. Together. I think I'm really gonna like turning 40 ❤️❤️❤️💍."

Danica McKellar, Christy Carlson Romano, and Eboni K. Williams were among the celebrities who congratulated Sweetin on her engagement.

Wasilewski shared the news on his own Instagram page, reposting the snap of the newly engaged couple with the caption, "So that happened…"

Sweetin and Wasilewski first confirmed their relationship in February 2018 after the actress posted a collage of the couple on Instagram, writing in part, "Find someone who you can share this kind of love with… Someone who doesn't just show you they love you one day a year. Who isn't afraid to look silly when they tell you they love you."

The news of Sweetin's engagement comes just over one week after beloved Hollywood icon and Full House patriarch Bob Saget died.

Sweetin and the rest of the Full House family, including series creator Jeff Franklin, stars John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Lori Loughlin, Andrea Barber and Scott Weinger as well as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, issued a joint statement addressing the comedian's death shortly after news of his passing.

"Thirty-five years ago, we came together as a TV family, but we became a real family. And now we grieve as a family," the statement read. "Bob made us laugh until we cried. Now our tears flow in sadness, but also with gratitude for all the beautiful memories of our sweet, kind, hilarious, cherished Bob."

The group's statement continued, "He was a brother to us guys, a father to us girls and a friend to all of us. Bob, we love you dearly. We ask in Bob's honor, hug the people you love. No one gave better hugs than Bob."

On Friday, the Full House cast, as well as Saget's family members and loved ones, came together to pay their respects to the former America's Funniest Home Videos host as he was laid to rest.

I'm sure since the break-up jason's friends arent liking seth and seth's friends aren't saying nice things about Jason. That's a break up. And that can be changed. but I bet you can't find ONE other of any of their real friends who would say one negative thing about them. Well one. They were annoyingly adorable together. Jason was so attentive and always making sure we were doing okay, he was just always thikning of his guests, and funny! and Seth couldn't be any less drama-oriented than all of this nor could he be any more easy going. We have a gazillion mutual friends. We all talked about them. They had magic. It was so intense that most of knew it would be forever epic or it would blow up. But that kind of love, the types that other people can see, once the dust settles, that love will still be there for them. This break up breaks MY heart. And you don't even know anything about them, spreading all this hate and lies and flex your finger typing bravery. I couldn't read another one, I had to make this post. Not sure I will ever check it Not sure I will remember my password. The memory isn't what it used to be.

Omg the most embarrassing thing just happened to me…

So my uncles business closed down for a few months because people were getting very sick again, so he’s been home with his mother (my Grandma) who lives with him, and now my other uncle who is a drug addict and alcoholic moved in with them too. He’s out of work and collecting unemployment but for some reason he was having issues with them and he wasn’t receiving his money. On top of that, he tried getting an EBT card and for some reason they denied him. So my father decided to apply (knowing he would get denied) just to show them he tried because they keep bitching how no one will help and they’re struggling (not true though, my father is paying some of their bills to help and I sent some money more than once). I decided to do what my father did, just apply knowing you will get denied just to say “look, I tried, not my fault”.

Today I get home from work and my doorman says to me “You have mail sitting by the mailbox that ended up in someone else’s mailbox. They gave it to us so we left it there so when you arrive it’s there for you”. I walk over to the mailbox and see it’s a fucking letter from SNAP!!!! And on the envelope it says SNAP by the address!!!! Are you kidding me?! I live in a doorman building and pay a shit ton for my small apartment only for them to think I’m on EBT?!!!!

He asked me if it’s mine and I said yes, thank you then walked away toward the elevator fast.

I signed up knowing I would get denied (and I did for making far too much) and not even for myself and i still ended up embarrassed!

I’ve never had my mail end up in someone else’s mailbox (although others do end up in mine) but now the mailman makes an error? I’m so mad.

Long Term Relationship Problem - What do I do?

I'm 33 and I've been in a relationship since I was 18 years old with the same guy, so all of my adult life. 3 years in I started cheating, and a few years after that when he caught me on a hookup app we opened the relationship, under the guise of me travelling with work so much. Following that, I still found it very difficult to be honest about who I hook up with, until this summer one night I gave him a rundown of my sexual partners since opening things. Turns out he doesn't make much use of the open status. I work from home, so while he's gone I have more opportunity.

Similar to the open thing, I always seem to get my way and take the lead - most of our friends start as my friends, most group/3ways are things I've instigated. I think overall I enjoy sex with alot of guys, but part of me thinks my outlook on life is warped and I should do some work to rewire myself. He still gets aroused around me all the time, whereas I struggle to get hard or also use porn to help. He had gained weight at one point but has lost much of it and really put the effort in this year. We have a house, a dog, good careers, and are discussing kids, but the sexual drive has gone for me while at the same time I could go have sex with strangers today and be rock hard throughout.

Now on the scene is a guy who I hooked up with who does have his own issues with self esteem, but who is amazinf and I love spoiling him and taking him out to what have essentially turned into dates. He knows about my situation, and is trying to date other guys while we figure out what it is we're doing - when we've been out together strangers have come up to say how great we look together. He would never in a million years want an open relationship.

What do I do? Part of me thinks what I have should be enough - I have a ton of freedom with my partner, but I find myself zoning out of conversations with him now. But is this new guy just a honeymoon phase? Would I even be thinking of what I should do if I hadn't met him? We talk for hours every day and the sexual chemistry is great, but is it even possible for me to do something to be satisfied with only one guy - can I rewire myself?

I've a feeling I might have BPD with how intensely I feel things and the recklessness of my sex life at times, but that's another story.

Kara Swisher on Mark Zuckerberg’s crisis and ours: ‘The Problem Is Him’

When Vietnam’s communist rulers gave Facebook an ultimatum to censor anti-government posts earlier this year or leave the country, Mark Zuckerberg personally made the call to appease them. It’s among the damning revelations about the company to emerge from whistleblowers in recent weeks, most of them contained in the so-called Facebook Papers. The trove shows how Facebook knowingly amplified anger and misinformation about the platform and the company’s engineers chillingly identified ways to manipulate the behavior of its 3.5 billion users, meaning about half the planet’s population may ultimately be swayed by the whims of one man.

On ftm and “gay” men situation- revolt against heterosexuality

I know that gay men tend to hate this topic because it makes it seem like homosexuals are being erased. But I think that there is more to this situation that meets the eye. For one thing, the ideas of sexuality and sex are becoming an afterthought for a subset of gen z. I came to the conclusion that part of the reason for gay FTM is that they have discomfort with heterosexual. They don’t like how heterosexuality is portrayed and identifying as gay men to circumvent it. I think that a quarter of them know that they’re not male or really men. But they don’t want identify as women or females. I’m not sure how to the explain the guys who entertain them. Though, there does seem to be a push for people to be bisexual in porn. Even some of my heterosexual acquaintances notice a trend to some type of pansexuality in porn. It looks like only homosexuality is being erased, but so is heterosexuality. We’re just the canaries in the coal mine. Sooner or later, heterosexuals will probably face the same issues. In fact, the rise of ftm is just the first sign. Ftm are just symptoms of a larger problem.

Why haven’t any companies lost money during the pandemic?

In fact, they’ve all made a fortune. Oil companies, rental cars, hotels, airlines, and car companies, big tech, the grocery sector, Amazon, Walmart and all the usual suspects have made a fortune.

How is this possible if there is all this “inflation” and a “labor crisis?” They haven’t lost a cent. They have raised the rates on everything. And are making huge, record profits. Why don’t they pass that down to their customers and employees?

Military concerned about Explosion of sizzling ‘Thirst-trap’ posts on TikTok 💦

For those who aren’t aware, Urban Dictionary defines “thirst trap” as “a sexy photograph or flirty message posted on social media for the intent of causing others to publicly profess their attraction. This is done not to actually respond or satisfy any of this attraction, but to feed the posters ego or need for attention.” This phenomenon has made its way onto the TikTok video-sharing platform in the form of 15- to 60-second videos, and even more specifically into the platform’s military subculture. And while the women seem to take the most heat for sharing “provocative” content, there certainly is no shortage of male service thirst trapping.

A soldier using the name John Bland, who goes by the handle @notohkayjohn on TikTok, is perhaps one of the most infamous military TikTok users. His account primarily features him partially dressed in uniform, staring off seductively while music plays in the background. In some of the more risqué posts, however, he can be seen suggestively grabbing his crotch or tugging at his underwear.

Bland has 5.1 million followers to date, but he’s not the only one who uses TikTok this way. A purported Marine Reservist, Garrett Nolan, who posts as @garett__nolan, shares similarly seductive TikTok videos. He boasts a whopping 6.3 million followers. There are an unknown number of service members across the platform in uniform thirsting, dancing, working out and sharing their life stories despite the late 2019 ban of the Chinese-made app by the Pentagon, Army and Navy. However, as it turns out, the ruling on TikTok stands that individual service members are technically free to use to the platform in non-work capacities. The ban only extends to formal military entities connected to a chain of command or formal military group, Army Col. Joe Buccino, spokesman for XVIII Airborne Corps told Military Times. “With regard to conduct on TikTok, it’s the same as conduct on any other platform,” he said. “The governing document is under regulation 600-20, which is understandably vague on this matter. However, Buccino notes, “A good way of thinking about this is if you would not say it in front of formation, you should not say it on social media.” The Army’s social media handbook in particular embraces a three-pronged approach when it comes to individual soldiers posting on social media in general: Think, type and post. “The U.S. Army defines online conduct as the use of electronic communications in an official or personal capacity that is consistent with U.S. Army Values and standards of conduct. It is important that all Soldiers know that once they have logged on to a social media platform, they still represent the U.S. Army,” the guide says. “Online misconduct is a term that describes unacceptable or improper behavior through the use of technology.” But whether or not “thirst trap” posts in uniform mark of a violation of that policy is, as of yet, unclear.
