Kelsey Grammer Spills on 'Frasier' Reboot With 'most of cast' Returning

Kelsey Grammer spills details on the upcoming "Frasier" reboot coming to PARAMOUNT+.

"It's going to be his third act, his sort of next installment of his life. We last saw him leaving for Chicago and that played out. We're going to deal with that in the context of the new show. He's always on the verge of doing something.

John [Mahoney] is gone, and that was a very sad thing for us all. Honestly, I didn't know my own dad very well, so I had a chance to kind of play out this decade of loving a guy who was sort of my surrogate father. We were really close, and I miss him. So, we're going to deal with that in the first show.

And it looks like most of the other cast is going to come back. They've all been invited. We're still sort of ironing out what the story is and doing some polishing. But I think it would be really nice for everybody to see the family back together, in a new world. They're going to be in a new place. They'll be in a new city. There will be a new set of circumstances."

51-Year-Old Amazon Worker Says She's Homeless Because She Can't Afford NYC Rent With the $19 She's Paid Per Hour

An Amazon employee who works at the company's warehouse on Staten Island in New York City said she lives in her car in the building's parking lot because she can't afford rent in the city with the $19.30 she makes per hour, Vice News reported on Friday.

The woman, Natalie Monarrez, 51, has been homeless since 2019 after struggling to find affordable permanent housing while working for two other Amazon warehouses in New Jersey that paid her even less, Vice reported.

"Jeff Bezos donates to homeless shelters for tax write-offs and PR. He needs to know that some of his own workers (without family or a second income) can't afford rent," Monarrez told Vice.

"Jeff Bezos has no idea that his workers are homeless, especially in New York, and I'm not the only one. I'm hoping executives will agree to pay workers more and that they know older workers have the right to be promoted like everyone else," she added.

While rents in New York City have fallen about 12 percent since the onset of the pandemic, it remains one of the most expensive places to live in the country. The median asking rent for a one-bedroom in New York City in June was about $2,500, a Zumper analysis found.

Amazon did not respond to Insider's request for comment on this story.

Amazon has frequently touted its $15-per-hour minimum wage, which it introduced in 2018 following pressure from Sen. Bernie Sanders, as evidence that it treats workers well.

But Bloomberg reported in December that in 68 counties where Amazon opened its largest type of warehouse, average industry pay dropped by 6%, and that a study from the Government Accountability Office found that more than 4,000 Amazon employees across nine states are on food stamps — trailing only Walmart, McDonald's, and two-dollar store chains. Amazon disputed Bloomberg's analysis, telling the publication that most of its hires come from retail jobs that typically pay less than warehouse jobs.

Amazon has also avoided paying taxes that fund food stamps and other social-safety-net programs from which its workers benefit.

Despite earning more than $10 billion in annual net income every year since 2018, Amazon paid little or no federal income taxes in those years. Amazon previously told Insider that it pays all the taxes it's required to pay in the US and every country where it operates.

CEO Jeff Bezos, despite growing his wealth by $127 billion from 2006 to 2018, paid zero federal income taxes in at least two of those years, ProPublica reported.

Amazon has also been plagued by extensive reports over the years of grueling working conditions, injury rates far higher than the industry standard, and labor-law violations.

In April, Bezos said the company was working "to do a better job" for its employees, and that it would invest over $300 million in 2021 to make warehouses safer. He added that the company needed "a better vision" for how it creates value for its employees — "a vision for their success."

Last year, workers spoke out repeatedly about what they said was Amazon's failure to protect them during the pandemic — and in some cases, faced racially charged smear campaigns and illegal retaliation and terminations.

Following an unsuccessful attempt by Amazon workers in Alabama to unionize, workers at Monarrez's warehouse, which Amazon calls JFK8, have also sought to unionize. Chris Smalls, an organizer the company fired in March 2020, is leading the effort.

Anyone else not happy that things are going back to normal?

I liked getting on the subway and it was quiet. No line-ups at the coffee shop. Fewer people out and about doing their stupid shenanigans like walking and texting at the same time.

Things are picking up again and all the nonsense I didn't miss is coming back. Parks are busier than ever so no space to sit and contemplate. More people on the subway listening to their stupid show with no headphones so that we all have to listen to it or people talking with their outside voices or like foghorns. More people coming back to the office and having to deal with their gossip and bullshit, when I miss working at home where I could focus solely on work and got a lot of work done and didn't miss having to make fake conversation with co-workers. All the rudeness I didn't miss coming back full swing.

I know we need to get things back to some kind of normality and we need to stimulate the economy, but I got used to certain things over the past year. Sometimes I dread going outside because I have to deal with the rudeness and stupidity of other humans.

Anyone else in the same boat?

Virginia Woolf & The Stream Of Consciousness Style: Yay, Or Nay?

I'm about to start re-reading "Mrs. Dalloway". I didn't finish it the first time (years ago), because while lovely, it's so densely written, it becomes laborious. Intellectually, I'm fully capable. But I scarcely have the patience.

Initially (and uninformed), because I live inside my head, I thought the stream of consciousness style would prove to be a favorite. But the truth is that reading this (at least where Woolf is concerned) is sometimes like wading through quicksand. That quicksand is at its deepest only 5' (I am 5'4"), but it's quicksand nonetheless.

I prefer the cinematic style of Steinbeck. But even if I don't read Faulkner, Joyce, or Proust (and I will, at least where Faulkner is concerned), I greatly appreciate what Woolf has taught me about human perception and expression, and her own psychology.

Here's an audio version of the novel. It is no substitute for reading the material, but it's well done.

Anybody was familiar with One Step Beyond ?????

So, a few weeks ago, épisodes from that show started to appear as a suggestion for me on YouTube.

At first glance, I really thought it was kind of a Twilight Zone parody. Then I quickly realised it was serious, but there are elements eerily similar to the Rod Serling show. The presenter introducing the story, giving his opinion in conclusion. The music is reminiscent of the first season of TZ, so is the image during the generic.

The stories are bit like a mix of TZ, Hitchcock Presents and Tale of the Unexpeted. Some of the premises are very good, but the execution is a bit less dynamic than in the other shows mentionned and seemed to be inspired from a radio play. The stories lack the bite and the social commentary some of the TZ had, but are still interesting.

The tone is more like they are introducing a real story but want to let you decide if there is an explanation or if we are dealing with supernatural. It is obviously supernatural.

I' m not American, so maybe this is why I never heard of it. It was broadcast in the U.S. from 59 to 61. Anybody is familiar with this ?

Where in the World are all the Trans Children? They're everywhere

According to supporters of the raft of proposed laws targeting trans youth in state legislatures around the country, the answer is emphatically yes: Transgender children are a liberal American fad.

Corporal Punishment - Elementary School Principal Paddles Naughty Child

David Archuleta reveals struggles with sexuality and Mormon faith, urges 'compassion' toward LGBTQ+ community

David Archuleta opened up about his struggles with his sexuality and faith in an emotional Instagram post on Saturday, calling for more "compassion" for those going through such experiences. The singer and American Idol alum, who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as Mormons), said he has long been uncertain of his sexuality and struggled to reconcile this uncertainty with his religious faith. "I like to keep to myself but also thought this was important to share because I know so many other people from religious upbringings feel the same way," Archuleta began his lengthy post. "I've been open to myself and my close family for some years now that I am not sure about my own sexuality. I came out in 2014 as gay to my family. But then I had similar feelings for both genders so maybe a spectrum of bisexual. Then I also have learned I don't have too much sexual desires and urges as most people which works I guess because I have a commitment to save myself until marriage. Which people call asexual when they don't experience sexual urges." "I think we can do better as people of faith and Christians, including Latter-day Saints, to listen more to the wrestle between being LGBTQIA+ and a person of faith," he wrote. "I don't think it should come down to feeling you have to accept one or the other. For me to find peace the reality has been to accept both are real things I experience and make who I am.... You can be part of the LGBTQIA+ community and still believe in God and His gospel plan."

Like many Christian denominations, the LDS Church has long held that homosexual activity and same-sex marriage are forbidden by God. The Church revised its stance on same-sex marriage in 2019, reversing a 2015 declaration that couples in legal same-sex unions would be considered "apostate." However, such a marriage is still considered "a serious transgression" and officially opposed by the LDS Church. The Church's stance on LGTBQ equality has long been controversial even within its membership.

Sharon Stone has had ENOUGH of the M worship!

"Which brings me to my ill-fated question.

In her memoir, Stone writes about how Hollywood — and society — pit women against each other. “It was put to us that there could be room for only one.”

“I find that fascinating,” I say. “So when you finally got to work with Meryl Streep, you realized –”

Stone stops me. “I like the way you phrase that, that I finally got to work with Meryl Streep,” she says. “You didn’t say, ‘Meryl finally got to work with Sharon Stone.’ Or we finally got to work together.”

“Good point,” I start to say – “Because that’s the way her life went, she got built up to be, ‘Everyone wants to work with Meryl,’” Stone says. “I wonder if she likes that?”

“You’re right,” I start to say – “The way you structured the question is very much the answer to the question,” Stone says. “The business was set up that we should all envy and admire Meryl because only Meryl got to be the good one. And everyone should compete against Meryl. I think Meryl is an amazingly wonderful woman and actress. But in my opinion, quite frankly, there are other actresses equally as talented as Meryl Streep. The whole Meryl Streep iconography is part of what Hollywood does to women.”

“I hear you,” I start to say, but Stone is on a roll. She starts listing names. “Viola Davis is every bit the actress Meryl Streep is. Emma Thompson. Judy Davis. Olivia Colman. Kate Winslet, for f***’s sake. But you say Meryl and everybody falls on the floor.”

“I actually agree with you,” I start to say – “I’m a much better villain than Meryl,” Stone goes on, “and I’m sure she’d say so. Meryl was not gonna be good in Basic Instinct or in Casino,” for which Stone earned an Oscar nomination. “I would be better. And I know it. And she knows it. But we’re all set up to think that only Meryl …” – here Stone’s voice goes all breathy, and she stretches out her arms in an arabesque, left arm forward – “is so amazing …” – right arm forward – “that when you say her name …” – left arm forward – “it must have been amazing …” – right arm – “for me to work …” – left arm – “with her.”

“I’m so sorry,” I start to say – “That’s how you’re set up to ask the question. That’s how we’re set up to think,” Stone says. Breathy voice again: “Because I could never … touch the heights … We’re all labelled the Queen of Something. I’m the Queen of Smut! She’s the Queen of That! We all have to sit in our assigned seats. Are you kidding me? If we worked in a supermarket, she can’t always be the No. 1 checkout girl. We’re all doing our jobs. Everybody gets to get better, and everybody gets to sometimes have that not great a day. Even … Meryl.”

“Absolutely,” I start to say – “That phrasing has been taught,” Stone says. “We’ve been taught that everybody doesn’t get a seat at the table. Once one is chosen, nobody else can get in there.”

That seems to end the storm. The set-up that Stone is objecting to — that one woman or one person of colour is “enough,” and everyone else has to vie for scraps or settle for being less-than — is rife in every profession, and it’s demeaning, unfair and incorrect. But I feel she’s made the point — thoroughly! — and we should move on. How does Stone feel about #MeToo? “It can’t just have been this blip in Hollywood, where one guy [producer Harvey Weinstein] went to jail,” she replies. “Harassment is everywhere. Until there are real laws, #MeToo was just the opening sentence. I’m sure Meryl has a story. But I’m also sure if Meryl told you her story, she wouldn’t be being Meryl, and she wouldn’t be getting those jobs. Meryl can’t be the envelope pusher. Because then she wouldn’t get the jobs. Meryl’s a smoother. That’s what she does.”

Again, Stone isn’t wrong; Streep has been criticized for her silence around #MeToo. But the clock is ticking, and I still have a stack of questions."

Is there anything worth watching on PBS these days?

It's impossible to keep up with peak tv and since I cut the cord and only use apps like Hulu, Netflix, HBO GO/Now etc. I tend not to watch PBS.

Anyway, I have access to the PBS app and several of their shows make it to Netflix, Hulu etc. So, anything worth watching from the past couple of years?

AMAZON Again Commits Blatant FRAUD

Has anyone else had NIGHTMARE experiences with Amazon lately?

After spending dozens of phone calls to Amazon re why my 2 packages were NEVER delivered to my front door (and photos were NOT posted proving that they had been delivered to a "secure location") I finally got replacement items many days later.

Today I got TWO different emails from Amazon DEMANDING the return of both items with packing slips (which also were NEVER SENT) or my credit card would be charged.

1 month ago Amazon delivery driver threw my package directly on top of my huge vegetable plant breaking the branches. Too lazy to walk the few steps to put the package at my front door (1st floor) as always clearly written under delivery instructions. Could not revive the plant as it was too badly damaged. (Yes there were plenty of empty spaces the driver could have left my package on the back patio/balcony besides directly on the plant.)

We have a threesome... it's pretty lit': Gossip Girl's Evan Mock details making out with a male co-star and playing bisexual Aki

The skateboarder and model, 24, will portray Aki Menzies in the hotly-anticipated HBO Max reboot who is dating Audrey Hope, played by Emily Alyn Lind. 'I had to make out with [co-star] Thomas [Doherty] and I feel like I'm playing the character, but, for my personal life, I'm also seeing if I like it or not.

'I didn't but you're also asking yourself questions like, 'why is [kissing a man] so much weirder?' I think it has to do with social norms and all that.'

Netflix “Halston” Reviews

Oy.

“Netflix’s new five-part miniseries Halston is such a psychologically superficial portrait of the mononymous fashion icon that I invariably turn to one of my favorite critical pursuits: psychoanalyzing Ryan Murphy through his Netflix shows. Halston is, after all, the story of an acclaimed genius who, having sold his brand and possibly his soul, comes to realize that the only things that truly matter to him are his art and positive reviews. The fifth episode of Halston is even named “Critics,” a cheeky choice for a show with critical reactions embargoed to day-of-premiere.”

CornBrooms on Warren Street: one woman’s journey

As kevin sessums contemplates a 65 dollar “corn broom”, he also wrestles with “being a failure”, and moving into Section 8 housing....some senior citizen building in Hudson. ALOT different then his “loft” on Warren Street. But on the bright side, he thinks this will allow him to LIVE IN LONDON for six months, whilst securing a cheapo section 8 apartment. I don’t think it works that way. Most people who live in section 8 housing don’t have jetting off to London on their mind. But leave it to Sessums....she can find the silver lining on the gloomiest of days. I wonder if two cats are allowed in this seniors building? Are we going to have another “rehoming”.....like that third dog that he conveniently leaves out of his “narrative”......STAY TUNED FOLKS!! Cat hair cake ALL AROUND!!

9/11, 20 years later

In two months it will the 20th anniversary. Let's get a jump start on the grief porn and discuss what we remember and some things we never knew about 9/11. Here's a tidbit that I discovered recently. Someone survived falling from the north tower.

“Boston” Globe reporter Mitchell Zuckoff writes in “Fall and Rise: The Story of 9/11” (Harper Collins, 2019), on pp. 263–264, that when an FDNY Emergency Medical Specialist named Ernest Armstead made his way on the plaza amid smoking debris, shortly after the first plane hit, he “found a well-dressed woman in her fifties, with brown hair and tasteful earrings, who’d suffered catastrophic injuries that left only her head and right torso intact. Somehow, she remained conscious. (…) ‘I am not dead,’ the woman insisted. ‘Call my daughter. I am not dead.’”

Zuckoff infers that she probably died from her injuries shortly thereafter."

Embarrassing erection moments

Thread for posting your stories about those embarrassing times you've popped an erection.

I'll start. Last year I was in a mental hospital for some weeks. Anyway when I got there they had to check numerous things before I could be admitted. This skinny Arab worker there took me into a room to check my weight, height, etc. He then told me to take off my clothes so he could check my body for marks (to see if I was harming myself). I was shirtless in just my boxers and soon enough he told me to pull them down so he could check underneath them. He checked me from behind first. He asked me to turn around. I did, and turned to him with a huge boner. I was so embarrassed but he was very nice about it and complimented my size lol.

Anyone else have any embarrassing erection stories?

Joshua Bassett Confirmed He's LGBTQ+ And Doesn't Ascribe To A Label

In a June 24 interview with GQ, Joshua Bassett confirmed he’s LGBTQ+, although he won’t label himself. The news comes weeks after the actor seemingly came out during a May 10 interview with Clevver. At the time, fans didn’t know whether he was being serious or not because he did it so casually. Now, Bassett confirmed he “wasn’t joking.”

Bassett first hinted at his sexuality while talking about his love for Harry Styles. “He is a very classy man. He’s also very well-rounded and kinda does it all – acting, singing, fashion,” he told Clevver about the singer. "Also, he’s hot, you know? He’s very charming, too. Lots of things. This is also my coming out video, I guess.” In his new interview with GQ, Bassett said he stands “behind every word” in his IG post. “Even if there are consequences, I would much rather deal with consequences and live my truth than live in fear,” he explained.

When asked if he thinks young people still need to “come out,” Bassett said, “I am anti–coming out in the sense that there’s no need to.” He explained that people have tried to push labels on him ever since he was a kid, but he hasn’t boxed himself into a specific category when discussing his sexuality. “There are plenty of letters in the alphabet… Why bother rushing to a conclusion?” he said. “Sometimes your letter changes, sometimes you try a different one, other times you realize you’re not what you thought you were, or maybe you always knew. All of these can be true.”

“I’m happy to be a part of the LGBTQ+ community because they embrace all. Don’t let anyone tell you love isn’t love. They’re the ones who probably need it the most,” he added. “I think nothing is more powerful than speaking the truth.”

Philly’s 2021 LGBTQ ‘Pride lite’ festival canceled as group dissolves after backlash

Roiled by community backlash, the organization behind Philadelphia’s largest annual LGBTQ Pride parade and festival for the past 28 years has abruptly dissolved and canceled its forthcoming Pride festivities, the Inquirer has learned.

The organizers behind Philly Pride Presents did not respond to multiple phone calls, voice mails, e-mails, and Facebook messages — which were shown as having been read before the group took down its Facebook page late last week.

The disbanding of the decades-old LGBTQ organization and cancellation of its September “Pride Lite” festival — moved from the typical date in June, Pride month, due to coronavirus restrictions — is the latest chapter in a tumultuous saga for Philly Pride Presents.

The most recent controversy began with a Facebook post from the nonprofit group on June 10, which drew swift castigation from some members of the community for using transphobic language to describe patrons of the Stonewall Inn, whose actions during an uprising against police on June 28, 1969 are widely attributed as the birthplace of the modern LGBTQ rights movement. The post also drew scrutiny for casting police officers as victims, when LGBTQ people were subject to police abuse. Within hours, the post, and others regarding Pride month vanished from the group’s page without explanation.

On June 17, the group posted an apology to its page, saying its senior adviser in charge of making Facebook posts had resigned and that Pride organizers were “deeply sorry that these posts unintentionally offended and hurt the LGBTQ+ black, brown and trans community.” Then again, within hours — after mounting online criticism, an earlier column from Philadelphia Magazine, and questions from a reporter — the group’s Facebook page disappeared altogether, and large portions of its website were removed from public view. By Monday, Philly Pride Presents’ phone line was disconnected.

A city spokesperson said Philly Pride Presents “does not have a formal relationship with the City of Philadelphia” nor did the non-profit 501(c)3 organization receive any funding from the city.

But, Celena Morrison, executive director of Philadelphia’s Office of LGBT Affairs, said that the office “has heard and shared the community’s concerns regarding Philly Pride Presents’ social media presence.”

“While this recent development is still unfolding, we understand the community’s need for a new vision of what LGBTQ+ Pride looks like here in Philadelphia,” Morrison said. “The Office of LGBT Affairs has been in conversation with community leaders and activists as they prepare to reimagine Pride, and we look forward to supporting the many celebrations, rallies, protests, and programming already happening across the city, as the future of Pride in Philadelphia emerges — one that is reflective of the many diverse experiences of our city’s LGBTQ+ communities.”

The group disbanding, is “definitely a win, for the community collectively,” said Abdul-Aliy Muhammad, a West Philadelphia-based writer, organizer, and cofounder of the Black and Brown Workers Cooperative, who for years has fought against racism in Philadelphia’s Gayborhood and worked to hold the Office of LGBT Affairs accountable to the concerns of many Black and brown members of the community.

Black and brown LGBTQ organizers are in the process of planning an event in the place of the September pride, with details to come, they said.

“It allows for something new to be born,” Muhammad said. “It allows for something resonant with Black and brown queer and trans people in the city, for all LGBTQ folks in the city, to have a space that’s truly held by the people in our community.”

Leaked Navy video appears to show UFO off California

A newly leaked Navy video appears to show an unidentified flying object disappearing into the water off California, according to a clip obtained by a documentary filmmaker and shared with NBC News.

The video was captured in July 2019 by Navy aircraft and recorded in the USS Omaha's Combat Information Center, according to the filmmaker, Jeremy Corbell.

The clip appears to show a spherical object flying above the water for a few minutes near San Diego before it vanishes.

"It splashed," military personnel can be heard saying in the video.

The Defense Department confirmed that the clip was recorded by Navy personnel and said it will be reviewed by the Pentagon's Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, a panel established last year to "gain insight" into the "nature and origins" of such objects.

The video was published a few days before "60 Minutes" aired an interview with two former Navy pilots who recalled having been dispatched to investigate "multiple anomalous aerial vehicles" that descended 80,000 feet in less than a second. The incident also occurred off San Diego in 2004.

One of the pilots, Cmdr. Dave Fravor, told "60 Minutes" that personnel found a "little white Tic-Tac-looking object" moving above the water before it disappeared. Seconds later, his ship — the USS Princeton — said the object reappeared on its radar 60 miles away.

Christopher Mellon, a top defense official in the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations, said in an interview that there was "a lot of continuity" between recent reports of unidentified objects and reports dating back decades.

"What we're seeing are a number of distinct and different things," he said. "Sometimes we're seeing a 50-foot object that can travel at hypersonic speeds and seemingly go into orbit or come down from altitudes of potentially above 100,000 feet."

Mellon said the stigma associated with reporting such phenomena has long kept witnesses quiet — a sentiment echoed by Lt. Cmdr. Alex Dietrich, one of the Navy pilots interviewed by "60 Minutes."

"Over beers we've said, 'Hey man, if I saw this solo, I don't know that I would have come back and said anything,'" Dietrich said. "Because it sounds so crazy when I say it."

A lengthy story in The New Yorker titled "How the Pentagon Started Taking U.F.O.s Seriously" examined the work of journalist Leslie Kean last month. Kean co-wrote an article in The New York Times four years ago reporting that the Pentagon was spending millions of dollars on a threat identification program to examine unidentified aircraft that moved at high velocities with no apparent signs of propulsion.

Victoria's Secret Angels collapse is complete and to be replaced by "VS collective"

Victoria's Secret is saying goodbye to their Angels.

After years of scrutiny, the lingerie brand announced their new marketing brand on Wednesday (June 16), where the company will be introducing a new group of "VS Collective" that will be taking over for the Angels as they look to reinvent beauty standards for women.

When the world was changing, we were too slow to respond,” Chief Executive Martin Waters told The New York Times. “We needed to stop being about what men want and to be about what women want.”

Martin also said that the Angels are being phased out because he doesn't see them as being "culturally relevant" anymore.

Victoria's Secret announced the seven women that have been named the VS Collective, featuring actress Priyanka Chopra-Jonas, soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe, South Sudanese refugee and model Adut Akech, Chinese freestyle skier Eileen Gu, photographer and #Girlgaze founder Amanda de Cadenet, model and inclusivity advocate Paloma Elsesser, and Brazilian trans model Valentina Sampaio.

With the changes, don't expect to see the VS Collective posing in lingerie.

Instead, the group will reportedly focus heavily in marketing materials and new podcasts, with new projects being introduced next spring.

Over the past several years, Victoria's Secrets sales have been plummeting and former CEO Ed Razek was ousted after being accused of sexual assault and bullying.

-Jerry Falwell Jr and his most likely homosexual sex scandal

-Rudy Giuliani's probably going to get disbarred and lose the Dominion lawsuit

-Scott Pruitt was outed for excess spending (by Trump himself); he will never be able to run for office again

-Steve Bannon received a federal indictment over fraud and money laundering for building a wall

-Sydney Powell and L. Lin Wood ruined their credibility as a member of the bar

-John Bolton outfoxed himself and now is despised by Democrats, Republicans, and Trumpians.

-Rick Perry got blamed for a scandal he knew nothing of

He was in some of the biggest films of his generation- Thunder Rock, Julius Caesar, A Star is Born, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, North by Northwest, Lolita, Child's Play, Voyage of the Damned, The Boys From Brazil, Salem's Lot, Evil Under the Sun, The Shooting Party, and my personal favorite The Verdict.

This is Why Critical Race Theory is Important

I never knew about this detail regarding the 13th Amendment:

“In 1866, one year after the 13 Amendment was ratified (the amendment that ended slavery), Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee, and South Carolina began to lease out convicts for labor (peonage). This made the business of arresting Blacks very lucrative, which is why hundreds of White men were hired by these states as police officers. Their primary responsibility was to search out and arrest Blacks who were in violation of Black Codes. Once arrested, these men, women and children would be leased to plantations where they would harvest cotton, tobacco, sugar cane. Or they would be leased to work at coal mines, or railroad companies. The owners of these businesses would pay the state for every prisoner who worked for them; prison labor.

It is believed that after the passing of the 13th Amendment, more than 800,000 Blacks were part of the system of peonage, or re-enslavement through the prison system. Peonage didn’t end until after World War II began, around 1940.

This is how it happened.

The 13th Amendment declared that "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." (Ratified in 1865)

Did you catch that? It says, “neither slavery nor involuntary servitude could occur except as a punishment for a crime.” Lawmakers used this phrase to make petty offenses crimes. When Blacks were found guilty of committing these crimes, they were imprisoned and then leased out to the same businesses that lost slaves after the passing of the 13th Amendment. This system of convict labor is called peonage.

The majority of White Southern farmers and business owners hated the 13th Amendment because it took away slave labor. As a way to appease them, the federal government turned a blind eye when southern states used this clause in the 13th Amendment to establish laws called Black Codes.

Here are some examples of Black Codes: In Louisiana, it was illegal for a Black man to preach to Black congregations without special permission in writing from the president of the police. If caught, he could be arrested and fined. If he could not pay the fines, which were unbelievably high, he would be forced to work for an individual, or go to jail or prison where he would work until his debt was paid off. If a Black person did not have a job, he or she could be arrested and imprisoned on the charge of vagrancy or loitering.

This next Black Code will make you cringe. In South Carolina, if the parent of a Black child was considered vagrant, the judicial system allowed the police and/or other government agencies to “apprentice” the child to an "employer". Males could be held until the age of 21, and females could be held until they were 18. Their owner had the legal right to inflict punishment on the child for disobedience, and to recapture them if they ran away.

This (peonage) is an example of systemic racism - Racism established and perpetuated by government systems. Slavery was made legal by the U.S. Government. Segregation, Black Codes, Jim Crow and peonage were all made legal by the government, and upheld by the judicial system. These acts of racism were built into the system, which is where the term “Systemic Racism” is derived.

This is the part of "Black History" that most of us were never told about.”

Chris D’Elia Accused of Soliciting Nude Pictures From 17-Year-Old

Comedian Chris D’Elia was sued on Tuesday for allegedly soliciting nude photos from a 17-year-old girl.

According to the complaint, filed in federal court in Los Angeles, D’Elia sought and received more than 100 explicit images and videos from the girl over the course of several months.

The suit also says he had urged the girl to come to one of his shows, and then had sex with her. While they were having sex, according to the suit, he asked her age and she revealed that she was still in high school. He responded that that was “hot,” the suit states.

Afterward, the suit alleges that D’Elia continued to pressure her to send explicit photos. The suit also states that D’Elia would emotionally manipulate her, showering her with attention when she complied, but threatening to cut her off if she refused.

The suit accuses D’Elia of violating federal child pornography and child sexual exploitation statutes.

D’Elia was first accused of seeking explicit photos from teenagers last June, after he appeared in the second season of “You” on Netflix. On the show, he portrayed a comedian who sexually abuses teenage girls.

At the time, D’Elia said he “never knowingly pursued any underage women at any point.” But he also apologized for anything he may have done to give offense, saying he had let himself get caught up in his own lifestyle.

Last month, he released a YouTube video acknowledging that “I do have a problem.” He said he was “doing the work” to be a better role model to his son, and had been in recovery.

OMG: Braiding your hair is cultural appropriation

WTF. Apparently people with braids are yelled at for "stealing" "culture". That's like saying piercings are cultural appropriation. What does it say about a culture/cultures if ... knotting hair... is fiercely claimed as part of a culture/cultures? How bereft of real substance is there in those culture(s) that they have to desperately claim a manner of ... knotting hair?

Also, who cares. Cultural appropriation is a silly concept.

And why even do it? It's gross: when you braid, you're blocking segments of hair from being fully cleaned when you wash your hair. Microscopic detritus and residues get stuck between and in the knots. Why would a pretty girl do that? Especially those styles where you can see lines of bare scalp. It's gross in the way the honeycomb surface of tripe are gross—that weird biological grossness akin to the fear of clusters of holes, trypophobia.

ANL Granted Right to Appeal the Summary Judgement of High Court in Favour of Meghan Markle!

This is more bad news for what is turning out to be, since the first Oprah interview, increasingly bad PR for the Sussexes.

Bear in mind, this means that ANL (the parent company of the Mail on Sunday, which published Markle Sr.'s letter (not in full, though), has been granted the right to challenge and try to overturn the Summary Judgement that Mr Justice Warby handed down so suddenly, without allowing the Defendant to present the expanded Defence he permitted them to include just a couple of months earlier.

Only if the Court of Appeal overturn's Warby's judgement does the case go back to the High Court for (finally) a trial. So, a trial is still nowhere in view.

Just the same, this is bad news for Meghan Duchess of Sussex, who thought it was done and dusted and she could just collect her damages.

It was also somewhat unexpected. The CoA must have found some reason in ANL's argument even to grant the right to appeal - the Appeals court is usually loathe to challenge a standing decision.

Should the unexpected happen, and the judgement be overturned, then a full trial will not be in doubt, and the PEOPLE Five can kiss their anonymity goodbye, the Palace Four (Knauf, Latham, Cohen, and Jones - that staff that Meghan's PR rep just called "incompetent and not up to the standard she demanded for her 'work') will be able to come forward with their version of events.

And as Meghan was stupid enough to call experienced, successful staff "incompetent" to excuse her treatment of them, they'll probably be only too delighted to appear as witnesses for ANL.

Really - they keep aiming for the Palace turrets, and instead the grenades just keep coming back through the windows of Casa Montecito.

The Oprah interview whilst Philip was dying and the Queen grieving, Harry's poorly received whingeing about his childhood and his parents and his grandparents, then the stupidity of the baby name debacle which left him branded as a liar including the registering of the domain names before he even called the Queen (how stupid can you get?), her book flopping, the nasty story about why Meghan left the Fiji Food Market event, Lacey's "re-editing" book making it clear the bullying story has legs, and now ANL, against all odds, granted the right to appeal Warby's suspiciously sudden Summary Judgement.

Not a good couple of months. I predict more grenades re titles and race conversations and victimhood and smearing of the poor girl . . . until they've built the Queen so solid a case for taking the titles and/or amending the 1917 Titles Act to restrict HRHs to children and grandchildren of direct heirs only that no one will do anything but applaud when she does.

Only had room service, didn't come to the bar, never was seen checking in or out. Had a suite on the 7th floor with another guy who handle everything." "With Heughan, we've seen his boyfriends go dark on SM, we've seen him engage in laughably fake relationships with his co-star, friends and beards, we've seen him intimidated into babbling like a deer in the headlights when doing press (with his publicist babysitting him ) and basically driven into the Sunken Place of gay shame."

Peter Thiel Has 5 Billion Sitting In An IRA. It Is Not Taxable.

IRAs are intended as a middle class retirement vehicle. You cannot contribute if you have a salary over $110,000. He claimed $76,000 as a hedge fund manager at the time. The stock of course exploded in value. He then took the proceeds and used the money to invest in public companies. It could not be touched because it’s in an IRA.

It’s now worth five billion. Thousands of wealthy people use this tax dodge. The middle class are funding the rich. He is a complete piece of shit.

Princess Diana's Scared Note: 'My Husband Is Planning an Accident'

Prince Charles was questioned by the U.K. police in 2005 about the death of his ex-wife, Princess Diana, according to a new report.

The probe was part of Operation Paget, the investigation into the various conspiracy theories surrounding Diana's death launched by the British Metropolitan Police in 2004.

Former head of Scotland Yard John Stevens told the Daily Mail that he spoke to Prince Charles about a note that Princess Diana wrote in 1995 which said, "My husband is planning 'an accident' in my car, brake failure and serious head injury," so that he could marry Tiggy Legge-Bourke, a nanny for Prince William and Prince Harry. Charles and Diana divorced in 1996.

Prince Charles was interviewed at St. James's Palace as a witness two years into the investigation, after the note became public in 2003.

"Yes, allegations had been made about the Prince of Wales and other royals but we had to find or examine the [existing] evidence before we approached him with formal questions," Stevens told the outlet. "We found no other evidence to support the scenario suggested in Diana's note."

"We were left with the note, which in itself was not enough to make Charles a formal suspect," he continued. "If he chose to assist Operation Paget, he would be doing so voluntarily as a potential witness. We would not be interviewing him under caution."

Stevens reportedly read the note to Prince Charles then asked him: "Why do you think the princess wrote this note, sir?"

The royal replied, "I did not know anything about [the note] until it was published in the media."

"You didn't discuss this note with her, sir?" Stevens asked, to which Charles said, "No, I did not know it existed."

When asked, "Do you know why the princess had these feelings, sir?" Charles replied, "No, I don't."

"At the end of the day he was incredibly cooperative because he had nothing to hide," Stevens told the Daily Mail.

Although Prince Charles, now 72, cooperated with the investigation, his father, Prince Philip, declined to assist in the investigation. He returned a request to comment on the allegations with three words, "No, thank you."

Princess Diana's note was written around the time she did her famous BBC Panorama interview with Martin Bashir.

An inquiry conducted by former supreme court judge John Dyson found last month that Bashir used "deceitful methods" to secure the interview by commissioning fake bank statements.

Stevens regretted that he and his officers did not interview Bashir.

"If there'd been an allegation then that Bashir had produced allegedly fake documents to Princess Diana, which is a criminal offense, we'd have investigated it. My goodness me, we would have done," he said. "But this has only come out recently, which is unfortunate.

'LOVE VICTOR' STAR MICHAEL CIMINO I'M GETTING DEATH THREATS For Playing Gay CharacteR

Michael Cimino says he's catching tons of heat for playing a gay character in "Love, Victor" ... and he claims some haters are even threatening his life.

Michael, who plays the title character in the Hulu romance series, says he's getting ripped by some people in the LGBTQ community for taking a gay role when he's straight in real life.

MC told Attitude -- a gay magazine in the U.K. -- he was expecting to catch flak going into the project, but now says some of the reaction is crossing the line. The 21-year-old star is fully aware many people have a problem with straight actors getting gay roles while gay actors are often forced to stay in the closet. Michael's promising to be an ally by continuing to fight for LGBT rights ... even after he's done playing the role of Victor.

Sounds like Michael's getting heat from all angles, including from his own family. He says some of his own relatives are spouting off homophobic comments about the show and his character ... something he didn't expect.

Behar and her colleagues were discussing Carl Nassib's announcement on their ABC show when she kicked off the segment saying: 'I know he's the first active NFL player ever to come as gay but come on it's 2021, is this such a big deal?'

Then, after being told by her co-hosts that it was a big deal, she joked: 'You know after they said penetration in the end zone they lost me.’

Her co-hosts Anna Navarro, Sara Haines and Meghan McCain grimaced but she carried on, saying: 'I don't know that this is such a big deal.'

She said that because other athletes in different sports had come out as gay before, Nassib's announcement - the first from a player who is still playing in the NFL - was 'not that big of a deal'.

Later, Behar made some attempt to apologize for the crudeness of her joke but she stood by her sentiment that the announcement shouldn't get as much attention.

'I just long for the days where you can just be gay in the world and it doesn’t become a big deal.

'That inappropriate joke I made for daytime television - scratch it. Make believe I never said it. We'll be right back.'

Twitter users immediately slammed her joke and her comments that it was not such a big deal.

One said it was time for Behar to resign, writing: 'Gay jokes were NEVER funny. Get a clue'.

Joe Flanigan Denies Claims He Supported Gay Marriage Ban Prop 8

Joe Flanigan Denies Claims He Supported Gay Marriage Ban Prop 8

By On Top Magazine Staff; Published: May 13, 2011

Actor Joe Flanigan has chided an Internet commenter for claiming he supported Proposition 8, California's gay marriage ban.

The 44-year-old star of cabler Syfy's science fiction drama Stargate Atlantis was livid at claims made by a poster using the name SeedyPetee on the UK forums site fmforums.co.uk.

"I go to a lot of sci-fi cons and have spoken with a lot of people who've worked with him," the user wrote. "Joe is from a very conservative family background. He refused to do any shirtlessness on the Stargate series because he purposely did not want to attract the same kind of 'gay following' that Michael Shanks and Ben Browder have. He's SO not down with the gays that when California had the Proposition 8 thing going on, Joe donated money to have it PASSED, which made him pretty unpopular with the rest of his open-minded cast mates."

Flanigan denied the claims in a tweet to his more than 17,000 followers: "Somebody named seedypetee spreading lies. Naughty boy. We will expose you. Never supported Prop 8. I embrace ALL my fans."

"Dave" on FXX; anyone else watching?

Season 2 has three episodes out so far. It's really uneven, but I'm sticking with it. Episode three was something else, including all the gay stuff between Dave & Benny. What is Benny Medina's deal? Some of those scenes were pretty convincing because of him. I know this show doesn't shy away from male nudity, or male intimacy (last season with Dave's friend/manager in the bathtub with him). But this was another level.

Thr first session was a knockout in my opinion. You think the show's one way, then it goes another way. The Gata episode was brilliant. I cried.

Christopher Walken and Robert Wagner

Before Robert LaTourneaux from Boys in the Band died, he mentioned that when he was hustling one of his clients was Walken, who seems to have flown under the radar as far as his gayness is concerned.

"[LaTourneaux] gave an interview to a gay magazine naming his famous married closeted bisexual lovers, alleging one of them to have been Academy Award-winning actor Christopher Walken. He also accused Walken of having an affair with another married actor, Robert Wagner, on the night of actress Natalie Wood's (Wagner's wife) unexplained death."

The night before Natalie's death, the skipper wrote that he spent the night with her on Catalina while Walken and Wagner spent the night on the boat. This is why the real story about Natalie's death has never come out.

Prince of Wales gave Duke and Duchess of Sussex a ‘substantial sum’ to start new life

When the Duke of Sussex told Oprah Winfrey that his family had “literally” cut him off financially, sources close to the Prince of Wales could not hide their surprise.

The bank statements, they said, told a different story.

It has now emerged that the Prince of Wales gave the Duke and Duchess a “substantial sum” when they stepped back from their official roles, apparently contradicting Prince Harry’s claim that they had only been able to afford their new life in California because of his inheritance from his mother.

The Clarence House annual review revealed that Prince Charles gave a total of £4.5 million to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during the last financial year, down from £5.6 million the previous year.

A Clarence House spokesperson confirmed that it included a "substantial sum" to help the Sussexes following their departure from royal life, payments that ended last summer.

“As we'll all remember in January 2020 when the Duke and Duchess announced that they were going to move away from the working Royal family, the Duke said that they would work towards becoming financially independent,” the spokesperson said.

“The Prince of Wales … allocated a substantial sum to support them with this transition.”

He described the couple's departure from the working Royal family as "a matter of enormous sadness to the family,” but added: “The Prince wanted to help make this work.

“I betray no confidence when I say they've been very successful in becoming financially independent.”

It also emerged that the investigation into alleged bullying by the Duchess of Sussex, which is being conducted by an external law firm, is being paid for privately.

Buckingham Palace declined to confirm which member of the Royal family was footing the bill but said no taxpayers’ money was being spent on the probe.

Details of the review were expected to be included in the annual report, but it has not yet been completed and aides declined to reveal when its conclusions might be published.

A spokesperson for the Sussexes insisted that there was no contradiction on timings and that it was “inaccurate” to suggest otherwise.

“The Duke’s comments during the Oprah interview were in reference to the first quarter of the fiscal reporting period in the UK, which starts annually in April,” she said.

“This is the same date that the ‘transitional year’ of the Sandringham agreement began and is aligned with the timeline that Clarence House referenced.”

In the interview, the Duke told Oprah: “my family literally cut me off financially… in the first half, the first quarter of 2020. But I’ve got what my mum left me, and, without that, we would not have been able to do this.”

Buckingham Palace has also admitted it was failing in its efforts to improve diversity as it published staffing figures for the first time, in the wake of the Sussexes’ racism allegations.

The Sovereign Grant report, published on Thursday, revealed that 8.5 per cent of employees at the palace are from an ethnic minority background. Aides said they hoped to increase that figure to 10 per cent by the end of 2022.

A senior palace source acknowledged they “must do more” to improve diversity, adding: “We are not where we would like to be despite our efforts.”

The aide said the figures had been published so there could be “no place to hide” and they could be held accountable if no progress was made.

Clarence House revealed that eight per cent of its staff were from ethnic minority backgrounds, which it also admitted was "not where we need to be".

It comes just months after the Sussexes accused the Royal family of racism, claiming that concerns had been raised about the colour of their unborn son’s skin tone.

In the UK, around 13 per cent of the UK population is from a minority ethnic background.

What are your favourite "world fusion" musicians/songs?

There's not a really great term to describe what I mean, but I know many use "world fusion". In the past year or so, I've found myself really attracted to music that takes on more of a fusion of styles from around the world; a merging of western and other styles.

It really begun when I discovered Natacha Atlas a little while back, followed by looking into Transglobal Underground, for whom she used to sing. From there I found Nitin Sawhney and Sheila Chandra. Then, on thinking about it, I've always been a fan of Kate Bush who did a lot of this kind of thing too. Listening to Siouxsie and the Banshees shows they did it a bit as well. Of course, there's Peter Gabriel and Paul Simon (who I don't like much) and David Byrne (who I do). The mixing of sounds from around the world, the thinning of boundaries between genres, it's much more interesting for me to listen to these days. Checking out Basement Jaxx recently, I loved how a song like "Hey U" starts off sounding like something out of Carnival and seemlessly merges into Romani music, while being sung by a Scandinavian artist and based around western House music.

Any favourites/recommendations?

Steven Pinker: These Are the Grammar Rules You Don't Need to Follow

Steven Pinker—the Harvard cognitive scientist who also chairs the Usage Panel of the American Heritage Dictionary—is not a fan of many of the “rules” one finds in modern guides to grammar and usage, not to mention finger-wagging language columns.

That's part of the reason he wrote The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's Guide to Writing in the 21st Century, which just came out today: Even though Pinker has long been a fan of Strunk & White's and other style guides, he realized that they are often larded with proscriptions that exist simply because they have been passed down from earlier, different eras, rather than because they are based on any sound grammatical logic or understanding of linguistics (Strunk & White, he notes early on, “misdefined terms such as phrase, participle, and relative clause”). For example, Pinker argues, in many cases it’s perfectly fine—in fact, desirable—to dangle participles, split infinitives, describe things in the passive voice, and engage in various other practices frequently frowned upon by our most authoritative style sources.

But The Sense of Style is also a broader look at why there’s so much bad writing in the world—Pinker takes specific aim at certain types of professional and academic prose that he finds unreadable. And his advice about how to avoid such writing is couched in cognitive-science theories that help him advise readers not just on how to write better, but on why certain decisions lead to smoother, easier-to-parse prose. (He also draws lighthearted examples from frequently interspersed comics ranging from Doonesbury to xkcd.)

In a recent interview with Science of Us, Pinker explained “the curse of knowledge,” offered an explanation for why Twitter debates are so awful, and expounded on the usefulness of the word ain’t.

What's Whoopi Worth?

Whoopi Goldberg says in this video that she had blown through all of her savings and had no money to live on when she was hired to do The View.

Today, her net worth is estimated to be $60 million.

Is that possible? Supposedly, Celebrity Net Worth and similar sites are pretty reliable, using publicly available tax, real estate and other data to estimate assets.

If Whoopi Goldberg managed to attain $60 million from leveraging her role on The View, then she's made some great business decisions in recent years.

Remember, she says she started the show with no savings at all. Joy Behar has been on The View for 25 years and her estimated net worth is half Whoopi's at $30 million.

Strangely, Sunny Hostin's net worth is only estimated to be $3 million. That seems unlikely given how long she has been on The View, plus she has done an Investigation Discovery series, writes chick lit novels, etc.

OAN host calls for mass executions of those responsible for 'overthrowing' Trump

One America News' Pearson Sharp made a broad and terrifying argument in a segment that first aired Tuesday night, falsely asserting that "hundreds of thousands" of Americans were involved in a "coup" against former President Donald Trump. Those who worked to overthrow Trump, Sharp went on, should be dealt with — permanently.

"What happens to all these people who are responsible for overthrowing the election?" Sharp asks in his segment, while implying that state election audits would eventually reveal a Trump victory. Well "in the past," he declares, "America had a very good solution for dealing with such traitors: Execution."

Since the election, OAN has continued to peddle lies and conspiracy theories in support of Trump's assertion that the 2020 election was rigged, The Daily Beast writes, although the network was previously reported to have quietly removed claims of election fraud from its website for fear of a lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems.

Archie Harrison and Lilibet Will Still Be Prince and Princess—Thanks to Camilla Parker Bowles, Expert Says

Archie Harrison and his sister Lili may still be prince and princess after all. And they could have Camilla Parker Bowles to thank for it.

Prominent royal historian Robert Lacey has told U.K. paper The Times that the issue has been discussed at the “highest level” and that the queen will not change existing rules, which would ultimately see Archie and Lili named prince and princess, in her lifetime. Any move to deprive the children of their titles would likely have to be made by Charles in the first hours of his reign, when, Lacey expects, he will be too busily focused on getting Camilla elevated to queen to be distracted by such peripheral projects.

Lacey has previously told The Daily Beast that he expects Charles to unilaterally declare Camilla queen the moment he is named king, disregarding a long standing agreement for her to be known as “princess consort.”

It was reported Sunday that Harry was angered at the time of the Oprah interview because Prince Charles had allegedly made moves to ensure Harry and Meghan’s children could never officially be princes or princesses.

It was reported that a source told the Mail on Sunday: “Harry and Meghan were told Archie would never be a prince, even when Charles becomes king.” The couple were said to have been told this just before they filmed their interview with Winfrey.

The source was quoted as saying: “This is what nobody realized from the interview. The real thing was that Charles was going to take active steps to strip Archie of his ultimate birthright.”

However now Lacey, whose newly updated book Battle of Brothers is being serialized by The Times in the U.K., told that paper he believes such an outcome is unlikely.

Who will or will not be a prince or princess is essentially in the gift of the reigning monarch meaning that while Charles could change the rules the moment he becomes king, as things stand right now it would be down to the queen to change the “letters patent,” laid down by George V in 1917, which currently dictate that Archie and his sister Lili will become prince and princess when their grandfather is monarch.

Lacey told The Times: “It is clear to me that the queen and her advisers have discussed this issue at the highest level, and that the future royal status of Archie and Lili is not in jeopardy in her lifetime.

“It is possible that Prince Charles may try to remove royal status from the Sussex children when he comes to the throne but that does not seem likely.

“His priority then will be to gain popular support for upgrading the status of Camilla from princess consort to queen consort, and he is not likely to court unpopularity by removing HRH status from Archie and Lili.”

Hugo Vickers, another constitutional expert, told The Times: “When the queen dies, Archie and Lilibet become prince and princess.”

The interventions come after it was reported on Sunday that Harry and Meghan’s children were set to be denied their “birthright” titles owing to an anticipated intervention by Prince Charles to change the rules around.

An infuriated Prince Harry reportedly agreed to do his explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey just 24 hours after being told that part of the price he would pay for leaving the royal family would be to lose his beloved military titles, roles, and associations.

Harry is known to have been dismayed by the removal of his ceremonial army titles, which included Captain General of the Royal Marines, which he was gifted by Prince Philip. The affront was particularly acute as Harry is the only living member of the royal family, with the exception of Prince Andrew, to have seen active service. Harry served two tours of duty in Afghanistan.

A source told the Sun: “There was a bust-up just before Oprah but it wasn’t to do with Archie’s title.

“That had been known and discussed for quite a while.

“Harry and Meghan were very cross before Oprah because the final Megxit separation had just been signed off which included Harry not keeping military roles.

I think "Exorcist II: The Heretic" is the worst major motion picture ever made

At least in the top 5. Re-watching it recently reminded me its not a bit scary but a lot laughable. It basically ended Linda Blair's career.

"Friedkin saw half an hour of the film: "I was at Technicolor and a guy said 'We just finished a print of Exorcist II, do you wanna have a look at it?' And I looked at half an hour of it and I thought it was as bad as seeing a traffic accident in the street. It was horrible. It's just a stupid mess made by a dumb guy – John Boorman by name, somebody who should be nameless, but in this case should be named. Scurrilous. A horrible picture." Friedkin later stated that this sequel diminished the value of the original and called it "the worst piece of shit I've ever seen" and "a fucking disgrace." He later added, "That film was made by a demented mind".

President Biden strikes a bi-partisan infrastructure deal!

WASHINGTON — President Biden announced on Thursday that the White House and a group of bipartisan senators had reached a deal on a $579 billion infrastructure plan.

“It’s been a very long time since the last time our country was able to strike a major bipartisan deal on American infrastructure,” Biden said at the White House.

Biden said he and congressional Democrats had to concede some on what’s known as “human infrastructure,” such as investments for childcare and spending on climate change. Democrats will instead look to pass additional spending in a separate bill through a Senate budgetary process called reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority to pass legislation.

The bipartisan proposal allocates $312 billion toward traditional infrastructure priorities such as roads, bridges, public transit, airports and waterways. The bulk of the remainder will be invested in water, broadband and power grid restoration, according to a fact sheet provided by the White House.

The administration says it hopes to invest $1.2 trillion in infrastructure over the next eight years — a number likely to disappoint climate activists, who continue to urge Biden to make a $10 trillion investment over the next decade.

The text of the bill is not yet publicly available, and it may face headwinds in Congress despite support from moderate Republicans. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has not said yet whether he supports the agreement.

But during his Thursday remarks at the White House, Biden said he expected the deal to make its way to his desk, and praised several Republican senators for their work in the negotiations, including Mitt Romney of Utah, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine.

“Mitt Romney has never broken his word to me. You know, the senator from Alaska, the senator from Maine, they’ve never broken their word,” said Biden, who was accompanied by Vice President Kamala Harris. “They’re friends. The people I was with today are people that I trust.”

He also said the bill was a sign to the world that democracy still works, and that it would help the U.S. compete with geopolitical rivals like China. “This agreement signals to the world that we can function, deliver and do significant things,” he said.

An infrastructure package has been a top priority of the administration, although progress was slow going in recent weeks. Talks between the White House and Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., fell apart earlier this month, and progressives within the Democratic caucus had balked at passing any bill that didn’t spend substantial amounts to target climate change. But Biden, who spent 36 years in the Senate, said a deal had always been within reach.

“Everybody tells me what my party is. My party is ‘divided.’ Well, my party is divided ... but my party’s also rational. If they can’t get every single thing they want, but all they have in the bill before them is good, are they going to vote no? I don’t think so,” Biden said.

He indicated, however, that he would sign the bipartisan infrastructure bill only if the additional Democratic bill also made its way through the reconciliation process.

“If this is the only thing that comes to me, I’m not signing it. It’s in tandem,” Biden said.

The Extinction of Gay Identity

Mart Crowley, the author of the groundbreaking gay play “The Boys in the Band,” lives in a Manhattan apartment building that he used to visit frequently, for parties, in the late 1960s, when “Boys” had its theatrical debut. It’s on East 54th Street, No. 405, and its nickname, he told me, used to be “four of five,” because that was supposedly the ratio of gay residents.

That is not the ratio now. “It’s all yuppies and kids in strollers and all of that — and a few old codgers,” Crowley, 82, said over a recent lunch. The gays have scattered, not just from that building but from others, and we’ve distributed ourselves throughout the city — and throughout society. Gay sanctuaries are vanishing.

Is that true of gay culture and gay identity, too? I increasingly get the sense that gayness itself has scattered, becoming something more various and harder to define. “Gay” tells you about a person’s lusts and loves, but it used to tell you more — about his or her boldness, irreverence, independence. It connoted a particular journey and pronounced struggle, and had its own soundtrack, sartorial flourishes and short list of celebrity icons. Not so anymore.

These thoughts came to mind as “Boys” comes back into view. For its 50th anniversary, it’s getting its first-ever Broadway production, with an all-gay, all-star cast including Jim Parsons, Matt Bomer and Zachary Quinto. Previews begin Monday; the show opens May 31. I’ll be fascinated to see what audiences make of this campy, catty portrait of a group of gay men who talk in code, traffic in secrecy and have carved out something separate that is not exactly peace.

The play is a postcard from an era that we have thankfully moved past, a point of reference for our hard-won success over the last half-century and our arrival in an infinitely better place. But it’s also a reminder of a glue that has gone missing among many gay men. Among many lesbians, too, though for them the lingo was different, as were the wardrobe, songs and patron saints. We were tribes in a way that we no longer are, with rituals that we no longer have, and with a shared story.

What’s that story now, and what qualifies as a gay play, if such a thing still exists? Jesse Green, one of The Times’s theater critics, wrestled elegantly with that question in T magazine in February, noting that for him, the gay theatrical canon — or, rather, the gay male theatrical canon — ends in 1993, with Tony Kushner’s “Angels in America.” That play followed “The Normal Heart,” “Torch Song Trilogy” and, decades earlier, “Boys.” All were born of the bigotry that gays endured and the grace that they forged in the face of it. The plays since, according to Green, are “grayer, more tasteful.”

“Sometimes, to judge from what’s onstage, I have to conclude that Crate & Barrel is sponsoring the new gay agenda,” Green writes, adding that he no longer hears “a gay voice,” which he defines as “quick-witted, protean, emotional.”

That voice rings loud and clear in “Boys,” which debuted in 1968 and went on to become a movie in 1970. It captures the flair for melodrama, appetite for mischief and exaggerated sense of humor — alternately self-lacerating and self-lionizing — that constituted a gay armor, worn because we lived in a sort of exile. I donned it myself in the 1980s, from my late teens through my mid-20s, as I took the temperature of the country around me, wondering exactly how cold to me it would be.

“Drag Race” Legends Get Groovy in “Brady Bunch” Paramount+ Special

Here’s the story of a not-so-lovely lady.

The Brady Bunch is about to get a makeover from the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race in a new Paramount+ Pride Month special, Dragging the Classics: The Brady Bunch.

The streaming event will reunite original Brady Bunch cast members alongside Drag Race legends as they re-enact the famous Brady Bunch episode “Will the Real Jan Brady Please Stand Up?” for “an innovative, one-of-a-kind event that uses state-of-the-art technology to transport the cast into the original Brady house.”

Most of the original Brady kids cast members — sans Maureen McCormick — are back, with Christopher Knight and Mike Lookinland reprising their roles as Peter and Bobby, respectively. Eve Plumb, who played Jan in the original series, will play Lucy, and Susan Olsen, who played Cindy, will now portray Margie. Barry Williams, who played eldest son, Greg, will now play the patriarch of the family, Mike Brady.

In Dragging the Classics: The Brady Bunch, the Brady brood will be portrayed by Shea Couleé as Marcia Brady, Bianca Del Rio as Carol Brady, BenDeLaCreme (out of drag) as Greg Brady, Kylie Sonique Love as Jan Brady, Nina West as Alice, and Kandy Muse as Cindy Brady.

Sadly, RuPaul will not be reprising his role as guidance counselor Mrs. Cummings, which he played in The Brady Bunch Movie and A Very Brady Sequel. However, he will make a special appearance as the “Wig Attendant,” along with his best squirrel friend, Michelle Visage.

For the uninformed children out there, “Will the Real Jan Brady Please Stand Up?” is a classic episode where Jan tries to stand out from her sisters by debuting “the new Jan Brady” with a black curly wig. The storyline was also recreated in The Brady Bunch Movie.

The original Brady Bunch actors were last seen together on 2019’s A Very Brady Renovation. Catch them alongside your Drag Race favorites when Dragging the Classics: The Brady Bunch hits Paramount+ on June 30.

‘Heartbreaking’ conditions in US migrant child camp

At a US border detention centre in the Texan desert, migrant children have been living in alarming conditions - where disease is rampant, food can be dangerous and there are reports of sexual abuse, an investigation by the BBC has found through interviews with staff and children.

In recent months, the US has seen a massive rise in migrants and asylum seekers from Central America. Violence, natural disasters and pandemic-related economic strife are some of the reasons behind the influx, experts say.

Some have also suggested the perception of a more lenient administration under Democrat Joe Biden has contributed to the crisis, though the White House has urged migrants against journeying to the US border.

The tented camp in the Fort Bliss military base in El Paso, Texas, is the temporary home for over 2,000 teenaged children who have crossed the US-Mexico border alone and are now awaiting reunification with family in the US.

Findings from the BBC's investigation include allegations of sexual abuse, Covid and lice outbreaks, a child waiting hours for medical attention, a lack of clean clothes and hungry children being served undercooked meat.

The BBC has spoken to camp employees about these conditions and seen photos and video smuggled out by staff.

New York Suspends Giuliani’s Law License

A New York appellate court suspended Rudolph W. Giuliani’s law license on Thursday after a disciplinary panel found that he made “demonstrably false and misleading” statements about the 2020 election as Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney.

The court wrote in a 33-page decision that Mr. Giuliani’s conduct threatened “the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law.”

Mr. Giuliani helped lead Mr. Trump’s legal challenge to the election results, arguing without merit that the vote had been rife with fraud and that voting machines had been rigged.

“We conclude that there is uncontroverted evidence that respondent communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed effort at reelection in 2020,” the decision read.

A lawyer for Mr. Giuliani could not be immediately reached for comment.

Mr. Giuliani, who was admitted to the state bar in New York in 1969, once had a prominent legal career. He worked in the Justice Department during the Reagan administration, and was named the United States Attorney in Manhattan in 1983.

He was mayor of New York City for eight years, rising to national prominence as he steered the city through the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Manifest series dead. NBC cancels and Netflix rejects

When Netflix decided it will not pick up the recently cancelled NBC drama Manifest, star Josh Dallas sent out a message to the “Manifesters,” the show’s passionate fan base.

“Well, my #manifesters, I’m sorry to say that it’s the end of the line for now. We are so proud to have brought this story over 3 season,” Dallas, who starred as Ben Stone, tweeted on Monday. “We so wished we could’ve finished this journey with you. But it wasn’t in the cards.”

Heading into the upfronts, Manifest was one of four shows on the bubble. Nearly a month after its May presentation, NBC opted not to renew the sci-fi drama earlier this month. Debris and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist have both been cancelled by the network, with Good Girls‘ and Ellen’s Game of Games‘ fate still yet to be decided.

Napoleon Bonaparte was not short.

He was actually slightly taller than the average Frenchman of his time.

After his death in 1821, the French emperor's height was recorded as 5 feet 2 inches in French feet, which in English measurements is 5 feet 7 inches (1.70 m).

He was actually nicknamed le Petit Caporal (The Little Corporal) as a term of endearment.

Napoleon was often accompanied by his imperial guard, who were selected for their height and this may have contributed to a perception that he was comparatively short.

Female Athletes Told to ‘Be Quiet’ as Trans Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard Qualifies for New Zealand Olympic team

Former Olympic weightlifter Tracey Lambrechs says females are being told to “be quiet” when they complain about the fairness of transgender New Zealand athlete Laurel Hubbard competing in women’s competitions.

Hubbard is on track to become the first transgender athlete to compete at an Olympics after the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) modified qualifying requirements for the Tokyo Games on Wednesday.

The 43-year-old still has to satisfy the New Zealand Olympic Committee (NZOC) of her fitness and performance standards before selection for the team but the prospect she will compete in Tokyo has already raised hackles.

“I’m quite disappointed, quite disappointed for the female athlete who will lose out on that spot,” Lambrechs, who won a bronze medal for New Zealand at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, told TVNZ.

“We’re all about equality for women in sport but right now that equality is being taken away from us.

“I’ve had female weightlifters come up to me and say, ‘what do we do? This isn’t fair, what do we do?’. Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do because every time we voice it we get told to be quiet.”

Hubbard, 43, competed in men’s weightlifting competitions before transitioning in 2013.

She has been eligible to compete in the Olympics since 2015, when the International Olympic Committee issued guidelines allowing any transgender athlete to compete as a woman provided their testosterone levels are below 10 nanomoles per litre for at least 12 months before their first competition.

Many scientists have criticised these guidelines, saying they do little to mitigate the biological advantages of those who have gone through puberty as males, including bone and muscle density.

In a statement on Thursday, the IOC said that while committed to inclusion, it was currently reviewing its guidelines to take into account the “perceived tension between fairness/safety and inclusion/non-discrimination”.

“The IOC is developing new guidance to help ensure that athletes – regardless of their gender identity and/or sex characteristics – can engage in safe and fair competition,” it said.

The exact criteria for transgender participation in elite sport is determined by the international federations and some have already adjusted the IOC guidelines for power events.

World Rugby banned transgender athletes from the elite women’s game last year for safety reasons.

“The rules are in place, that’s the playing field we’re playing in, so that’s how we’re going to move forward,” he said.

Australia’s weightlifting federation sought to block Hubbard from competing at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast but organisers rejected the move.

Rival weightlifters and coaches at the Commonwealth Games also complained. Hubbard suffered a potentially career-ending injury while lifting in the 90+kg division.

“I recently took a course, a Bob Ross instructional course,” Arquette told Garris. “He’s so calming…and he’s so amazing, the way he paints so fast, and I was just obsessed with it, and it just relaxed me, so I was just watching one time and I thought, I wonder if you can take his course still, if you can paint these things that he’s painting. So, I called up to BobRoss.com and they were like, ‘Yeah, there’s a local instructor you can find.’ So, I met this guy, and he was amazing, and I took this course, and then I asked him, like, ‘How did you get certified to do this?’ And he said, ‘Well, it’s a three-week course in New Smyrna Beach.’ So, this past summer, I went there. and I did it. and now I’ve taught like 30 people how to paint these little happy trees.”

Dad killed son after found eating shit

An enraged Colorado father killed his 13-year-old son after the boy found “compromising” photos of him eating feces from a diaper while wearing women’s underwear, prosecutors allege.

The murder trial of Mark Redwine, 59, began Monday with opening statements by prosecutors who claim he flew into a rage when his teenage son, Dylan, may have mentioned or shown him the sordid photos the night he was killed in November 2012, the Denver Post reported.

“A damaged relationship, exposed with compromising photographs, photographs in the hands of a 13-year-old who is disgusted by it, which triggered a violent rage in the defendant,” prosecutor Fred Johnson said.

Redwine, who was arrested in 2017, is charged with second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death.

Who was the best ever Best Actress Oscar winner, by decade? 1960s edition

Continuing our weekly poll on who was the most deserving BA winner by decade, let's share our thoughts and opinions on the ten winners from the swinging 60s.

As there are actually 11 winners and we didn't have space, I've removed Hepburn's win for Guess Who's Coming To Dinner. Her performance in Lion tends to be much better thought of so I figured that's the one to keep. If you prefer GWCTD please write it in.

She achieved the record breaking height of 7" 7.25" in the mid 70's & weighed at the time from 440 to 480 lbs.

Sandy had traveled all over the world for public events. I'm surprised that there aren't more photos of her on the internet since she posed with thousands of newlyweds (& others) in Niagara Falls for almost a decade at the Guinness Book Of Records Museum there. There's maybe 2 dozen total on some search engines.

She lived longer than any other giantess in modern times & passed away at 53 in 2008.

75% of Americans will spend at least on year at or near poverty

Mark Robert Rank, 66, is a professor of social welfare at the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. He is the co-author of "Poorly Understood: What America Gets Wrong About Poverty."

"According to your analysis, 60 percent of Americans will spend at least a year of their life in poverty. That’s just a shocking number for the wealthiest country in the world.

Yeah, and a lot of people are surprised at that. We show that 60 percent of the population between 20 and 75 will experience one year below the official poverty line, which is very conservative. And three-quarters of Americans will experience either poverty or near poverty, just above the poverty line. So people ask me: Why are those numbers so large? And one of the reasons is: If you look over longer periods of time, what happens is that things occur to us that we didn’t anticipate. So things like losing a job or a family splitting up or getting sick or a pandemic occurring. When they occur in the United States there’s not a lot to protect people. The safety net in the United States is very, very weak. So when these things happen, folks are very much at risk of falling into poverty."

The GOP: Defund the Military!!

Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, defended the U.S. Military Academy's curriculum from criticism by Republicans at a House Armed Services Committee hearing on Wednesday. Milley specifically waved off complaints about an elective class at West Point that teaches critical race theory and explored "white rage," but he more generally stood up for the importance of academic study of differing views and difficult subjects important to understanding America, like race.

"I personally find it offensive that we are accusing the United States military, our general officers, our commissioned, non-commissioned officers of being 'woke' or something else because we're studying some theories that are out there," Milley said, in response to comments from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and Mike Waltz (R-Fla.). The "wokeness" of the military has also been a talking point on Fox News, by Tucker Carlson and others, and host Laura Ingraham slapped back at Milley on her show Wednesday night.

"We are sending our tax dollars to this military in an attempt to week out so-called 'extremists,'" Ingraham said, saying these "extremists" are just "conservative evangelicals" and not, as the Pentagon contends, white nationalist militants. "Why is Congress not saying we're not going to give you a penny until all this is eradicated from the military budget? Nothing. 'This is my offer to you: nothing," she said, quoting Michael Corleone in The Godfather Part II." That's what I would say," she said. Ingraham accused Milley of spreading a "far-left Marxist racist ideology" in the military, adding, "I am totally outraged by him and his ridiculous response today."

Behind John Boyega’s Abrupt Exit From Netflix’s ‘Rebel Ridge’

New article in the Hollywood Reporter today.

-----------

In early June, John Boyega abruptly exited the Netflix production of Rebel Ridge “for family reasons,” according to a statement released by the streamer at the time. But other sources say that in fact, Boyega simply walked away from the production with filming underway — which, according to one person with knowledge of the situation, the filmmakers only discovered when they looked for him at his hotel and found that he had checked out.

According to sources, there seemed to be no one incident that prompted Boyega to leave in the midst of shooting. Several insiders, however, say the star had myriad issues ranging from the script to his accommodations.

Top Netflix executives, including head of global films Scott Stuber and co-CEO Ted Sarandos, tried to persuade the star to return to the set without success.

Dozens of crewmembers on the project were let go after Boyega’s departure as the production disbanded. The shutdown may be temporary, however. Sources say the new plan is to resume shooting with a new lead early next year.

Industry veterans say they cannot remember an instance in which a star walked away from a movie when filming was underway. “I know actors who wanted to back out of a movie, but nobody actually bails,” says one top executive who is not involved with the movie. “Not once they started shooting.”

Boyega’s London-based agent, Femi Oguns, denied in an email that Boyega had unceremoniously exited the project. “I can categorically say that these rumours are completely untrue,” he wrote. “People will form their opinions often rooted from boredom. As stated John unfortunately left due to family reasons which in truth is none of anyone’s business except his own. John and Netflix have a wonderful relation which will continue to grow for years to come whether that be through his acting or through [Boyega’s production company] UpperRoom.”

Through his representatives, Rebel Ridge director Jeremy Saulnier (Hold the Dark, Green Room) declined to comment.

In the wake of Boyega’s departure, Netflix was unable to find a quick replacement. The production has disbanded for now, with plans to resume with a new lead early next year. The film, which Netflix has described as “a thriller that explores systemic American injustice,” had already been delayed for more than a year because of COVID-19. The budget is said to be in the $25 million range.

Last year Netflix made a deal with Boyega to develop films “based on stories, cast, characters, crew, literary properties, mythology, screenplays and/or other elements in or around African countries, with a focus on West and East Africa.” After the actor left Rebel Ridge, the streamer said in a statement: “We look forward to continuing our partnership with John Boyega’s UpperRoom Productions.”

Boyega’s decision to exit the film would seem to preclude an insurance claim for money lost due to the shutdown of the production. Industry insiders say Netflix would not sue, though it would appear that an actor could face liability for leaving a project of his own volition while shooting was underway.

Asked for a reaction to the incident, an executive who has worked with Boyega in the past expressed surprise and was “very disappointed to hear it. The guy is so talented.”

Boyega recently wrapped sci-fi mystery caper They Cloned Tyrone with Jamie Foxx for Netflix. His next release is Naked Singularity, about a public defender whose life starts to unravel following a loss in court. THR’s review gave the film a mixed review but called Boyega “a compelling lead.”

Cody Silver - I'm Gay Asian Jewish Porn Star

Cody Silver is a biracial Chinese American Jew originally from Orange County, California. We spoke over Zoom, during which he was casually shirtless, his iconic red yen tattoo emblazoned on his chiseled chest. “I’m not your typical generic-looking white twink,” he said. He describes feeling different “growing up being a biracial Jew in an almost strictly conservative white and Christian community.”

A 2020 graduate of the School for Visual Arts, Silver went to school to become an artist, and now he’s become one in a different way: making porn in Brooklyn from his bedroom—or, as he puts it, his “gay baby jail.” The timing of his graduation overlapping with the COVID-19 pandemic closed off more traditional career paths. So he turned to OnlyFans.

Though Silver had prior experience with nude modeling and go-go dancing, it was never his main focus until the pandemic disrupted everything. Unwilling to break CDC guidelines and collaborate with others, he made a fortuitous decision: “I should just start an OnlyFans and just start jerking off for money. Lord knows I do it for free.”

Success followed. Under the username @PostMaload, Silver has made a name for himself. “This is the most money I’ve ever had in my life,” he said, pausing for a moment of gratitude. “All of my struggles feel like they’re finally paying off with this.”

The success has come somewhat as a surprise to him. “People of color: We work twice as hard to make half as much as white people do,” he said. “It’s something I’ve dealt with my entire life.”

Now he’s in high demand and can afford to pursue his passions. Silver writes and illustrates his own comics, which shine a light on his various identities. One such comic focuses on the casual antisemitism and anti-Asian racism he faced growing up, such as questions about why his dad wore a kippah or about whether he’s adopted (he’s not).

Silver mentioned how powerful it was to travel to Israel in 2015 on an LGBTQ Birthright trip, though, even in his home away from home, people kept mistaking him for a “lost Asian tourist.”

Silver also uses Instagram to talk about social justice issues. While their main feeds are for posting shirtless photos, their IG Stories—a content platform within the Instagram app where posts disappear after 24 hours—is where things get more personal and political. “I try and be as genuine as possible, which is a double-edged sword,” said Silver. “I’m giving my authentic self to so many people. I’m not giving any kind of persona.”

Silver says his mixed-race identity requires him to be an educator. “People don’t realize their microaggressions,” he said, so he feels it’s up to him to tell people “what the fuck is up.”

“It’s weird being queer, Chinese, and Jewish,” he said. “It’s like, damn, what isn’t going to offend me these days?”

Silver says he is “tired of hiding who I am,” so he puts his identity front and center in his porn. “There aren’t many Asian or openly Jewish performers that I know of,” he said. “I’m the representation that I’ve always wanted to see and have never seen.”

"Facing" bills

At my first minimum wage job I was taught to "face" the currency as I put it in the drawer -- have all the bills facing the same direction. It was expected later on when I worked as a bartender, too.

You'd "face" five $20s to make $100, or ten $10s, and then reverse so $100s were easy to count.

When I use the ATM or get cash from a teller, the bills never are "faced" any more. But I hardly ever use cash, and I know many younger people stick almost exclusively to debit cards and Venmo.

Is "facing" bills still a thing at restaurants and bars? Were you taught to do it?

Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus Says He’s Undergoing Chemotherapy for Cancer: ‘It Sucks and I’m Scared’

Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus took to social media Wednesday to reveal that he is undergoing chemotherapy saying, “It sucks and I’m scared,” while adding that he feels hopeful and expects to be back on tour when he’s cancer-free.

Earlier in the morning, Hoppus had alarmed fans with a photo he posted on Instagram, and then quickly deleted, of himself sitting in what appeared to be a hospital room with the caption, “Yes hello. One cancer treatment, please.” Many hours later, the 49-year-old rocker put a stop to the guessing game with a text statement that made explicit exactly what he’s been going through, and for how long.

“For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer,” Hoppus wrote. “It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this. I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I’m trying to remain hopeful and postive.

“Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future,” he added. “Love to you all.”

Hoppus had not been absent from social media in the three months since he says he started chemo. A week ago on Instagram, he paid tribute to the anniversary of a key Blink-182 album. “Hell yes,” he wrote last week. “20 years ago today Take Off Your Pants and Jacket came out. After the overwhelming and unexpected success of Enema of the State we wanted to write a darker, harder album that pushed the boundaries of what blink-182 could do. I love this record. Thank you to everyone who listened to it then and continues to put it on two decades later.”

Blink-182’s last release, the single “Quarantine,” came out during the pandemic in 2020. Drummer Travis Barker said at the beginning of 2021 that the trio would be releasing an album this year. Fans had been curious about the band not jumping on the post-pandemic tour announcement bandwagon and wondered if it was Barker’s many production side projects standing in the way, before learning of Hoppus’ health concerns on Wednesday.

‘Redneck Rave’ Descends Into Throat Slashing, Impalements, and Mass Arrests

A massive country music festival in Kentucky this past weekend started off on rocky footing: Police found meth, marijuana, and an open bottle of alcohol in the first vehicle they stopped at a traffic checkpoint. One of the people in the car had two active warrants out for their arrest.

“We were like, ‘Well, this doesn’t bode well for the weekend,’” Edmonson County Sheriff Shane Doyle told the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Police said that by the end of the five-day bash, dubbed the “Redneck Rave,” one man had been impaled, one woman had been strangled to the point of unconsciousness, and one throat had been slit. In all, Edmonson authorities arrested 14 people, and charged four dozen people from five states.

The event, organized by country rapper Justin Time, took place in Blue Holler Offroad Park and drew a crowd of tens of thousands, doubling the population of the unincorporated town of Ollie, which is so small it does not have a stoplight. Redneck Rave promoters bragged that they had sold more than 20,000 tickets. The lengthy getdown, advertised as the “biggest country party you’ll ever go to,” boasted a demolition derby, goldfish racing, and a full-scale football game as well as a series of concerts.

The details of the Redneck Rave’s incidents are grisly. One person slit a friend’s throat and remains at large, a 29-year-old man had allegedly strangled a woman until she passed out, one person lost the better part of a finger, and another was impaled when he drove a side-by-side over a 2-3 inch log that broke through the bottom of the recreational vehicle. Paramedics left the log inside him as they airlifted him to a hospital.

Justin Time, whose legal name is Justin Stowers, wrote on Facebook, “This was the biggest event we’ve ever done and with as many people and random things that popped up unexpectedly I feel like we all handled it very well.”

Doyle told the Herald-Leader last year’s Redneck Raves—there were two—“overwhelmed” his staff. He ordered all his deputies to work mandatory overtime this year and requested assistance from the Kentucky State Police. At least one person died at the event last year. Another Redneck Rave is scheduled for October of this year.

“There were so many intoxicated people, we just decided, ‘If dispatch sends an ambulance in, we’re sending a deputy in with them,’” said Doyle.

Six of the festival-goers face felony charges, and the sheriff’s office filed roughly 30 charges stemming from drug and alcohol violations.

Sarah Paulson felt 'trapped' while doing AHS: Roanoke : 'I just don't care about this season at all'

On her own personal ranking of American Horror Story seasons, Sarah Paulson would probably place Roanoke at the bottom.

The actress, who's now returning to the Ryan Murphy anthology series for season 10's Double Feature theme, opened up a bit about her experience coming off of playing Marcia Clark on The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and heading into Roanoke.

"I just don't care about this season at all," she admitted during a conversation on The Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast with host Scott Feinberg. "I know people will get mad at me for saying it, but for me, this was post having played Marcia and it was what I went to do right after finishing Marcia.

"I was so underwhelmed by the whole experience," she continued, "because I felt like I had entered into a new place inside of myself in terms of what I thought possible, in terms of what I might be willing to see if I can do. I felt really kind of trapped by my responsibility and my contractual obligation to do American Horror Story. As much as it's my home, and I've loved it always, it was the first time I felt like I wish I could have gone to Ryan and said, 'Please let me sit this one out.

Show representatives didn't immediately respond to EW's request for comment.

Roanoke, the sixth season of American Horror Story, was set on Roanoke Island, N.C. Paulson notably played Audrey Tindall, an actress in the cast for the documentary My Roanoke Nightmare that dramatized paranormal experiences had by the Miller family. Paulson also reprised her role of Lana Winters from the Asylum season that year.

The Murphy muse ended up returning for the seventh season, Cult, because she "wanted to be there because of what we all went through as a country," she said on the podcast. "I liked the idea that it was mirroring what we were experiencing. Enough time had gone by." Paulson also came back for season 8's Apocalypse theme for the Coven crossover event, but she did sit out season 9's 1984.

American Horror Story: Double Feature, set to premiere on FX Aug. 25, will now be split into two separate stories, "one by the sea, one by the sand," per a teaser video. The only tidbits Paulson gave to EW about who she's playing are, one, the character "has some issues" and, two, she has "a hair color" Paulson's "never had in life nor in the show."

Poll: Trudeau Liberals increase support; Conservatives dropping

New poll out from Abacus this morning:

Liberal fortunes strengthen; Conservatives shed 5 points in a month

June 24, 2021

Liberals (37%)

Conservatives (27%)

NDP (18%)

BQ (9%)

Greens (5%)

Our latest national survey of 2,070 Canadian adults from June 18 to 21, 2021 finds the Liberals opening a 10-point lead over the Conservatives as the federal government’s approval rating improves.

APPROVAL OF FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

Since our last survey, we see a four-point rise in approval of the federal government’s performance, to 44% with 38% disapprove. While movement on this indicator has been very limited this year, 44% is the highest number we recorded since January.

CURRENT VOTING INTENTION

If an election were held now, the Liberals would win 37% of the vote, the Conservatives 27%, the NDP 18%, the Green Party 5% and the BQ would get 39% in Quebec. The Liberals are up 3 points since mid-June, the Conservatives are down 2, and at the lowest vote share in over four years.

Comparing these results to the outcome of the 2019 election, the Liberals are 4 points higher, the Conservatives 7 points lower, and the NDP 2 points higher.

While regional breakdowns are obviously important, readers are encouraged to read these breaks with appropriate caution, as sample sizes are smaller and margins of error higher.

• In BC we see the NDP (37%) with a 7-point lead over the Liberals (30%) followed by the Conservatives (27%).

• In this wave we see the Conservatives with 39% in Alberta, compared to 34% for the Liberals and 18% for the NDP. The People’s Party claims a 7% share.

• In Saskatchewan/Manitoba we are seeing a close race between the Liberals (34%), the Conservatives (33%) and the NDP (25%).

• The Liberals have a 13-point lead in Ontario, with 42% compared to 29% for the Conservatives and 19% for the NDP.

• In Quebec the BQ (39%) are showing stronger than the Liberals (33%) with the Conservatives well back at 14% and the NDP (5%) and Green Party (6%) essentially tied.

• In Atlantic Canada, we find 50% support for the Liberals followed by the Conservatives at 27% and the NDP at 13%.

Worth noting is that the higher support levels for the Liberals in the Prairie provinces may be an anomaly and reflect smaller cell sizes, but we do also see a 6 point rise in federal approval in Alberta and a 9 point rise in Manitoba/Saskatchewan since the beginning of June.

LEADER IMPRESSIONS

Justin Trudeau enjoys a positive impression among 38% and finds negative impressions among 39%, for a net score of -3.

Erin O’Toole enjoys a positive impression among 19% and finds negative impressions among 40%, for a net score of -21.

Jagmeet Singh enjoys a positive impression among 35% and finds negative impressions among 26% for a net score of +9.

Annamie Paul has seen her negatives increase over the past two weeks. 12% have a positive impression while 25% have a negative one for a net score of -13.

ELECTION SETTING: LIBERALS VERSUS CONSERVATIVES

As election speculation is heating up, we thought it would be useful to compare the situation between the two largest parties in the House today, with where things were before an election call in 2019.

The Liberals trailed by 4 heading into that election, compared to a 10-point lead today. Today’s approval rating for the Trudeau government is 9 points higher than it was in 2019. Impressions of PM Trudeau are 5 points better this year, while impressions of Mr. O’Toole are 14 points lower than they were for Mr. Scheer.

Justin Timberlake speaks out in support of Britney for the first time

Thank you, Justin. She needs all the love and support she can get!

Justin Timberlake is breaking his silence.

On Wednesday evening (June 23), the 40-year-old singer and actor took to Twitter to share a message in support of ex-girlfriend Britney Spears after her bombshell day in court.

If you forgot, Justin and the 39-year-old pop star dated from 1999 until 2002.

"After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time," Justin first tweeted. "Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was… what’s happening to her is just not right. No woman should ever be restricted from making decisions about her own body."

He followed up by tweeting, "No one should EVER be held against their will… or ever have to ask permission to access everything they’ve worked so hard for."

Justin's tweets come after Britney appeared during a virtual court hearing where she called for an end of her 13-year conservatorship under her dad Jamie Spears.

"I want to be able to be heard on what they did to me by making me keep this in for so long, is not good for my heart," Britney told the judge. "I’ve been so angry and I cry every day, it concerns me, I’m told I’m not allowed to expose the people who did this to me."

Justin concluded his tweets by saying that he and wife Jessica Biel send their love and support to Britney.

"Jess and I send our love, and our absolute support to Britney during this time," Justin tweeted. "We hope the courts, and her family make this right and let her live however she wants to live."

Justin's messages comes several months after the release of the Framing Britney Spears documentary, where fans slammed him for the way he treated Britney after their split. He then later released an apology, which you can read here.

Zodiac's 340 character cipher has been solved!

The solution to what’s known as the 340 Cipher, one of the most vexing mysteries of the Zodiac Killer’s murderous saga, has been found by a code-breaking team from the United States, Australia and Belgium.

The cipher, sent in a letter to The Chronicle in November 1969, has been puzzling authorities and amateur sleuths since it arrived 51 years ago. Investigators hoped the Zodiac, who killed five people in the Bay Area in 1968 and 1969, would reveal his name in one of his many ciphers, but there is no such name in the 340.

According to code-breaking expert David Oranchak, the cipher’s text includes: “I hope you are having lots of fun in trying to catch me. ... I am not afraid of the gas chamber because it will send me to paradice (sic) all the sooner because I now have enough slaves to work for me.”

Oranchak, a 46-year-old web designer who lives in Virginia, has been working on the Zodiac’s codes since 2006.

“This is exciting,” Oranchak said in an interview Friday. “We’ve been sitting on the solution since last Saturday. When I first started looking at the Zodiac ciphers all those years ago, I thought, ‘Oh, I can just write a computer program and solve it,’ but it’s been kicking my a— all this time. Until now.”

Gunther from Friends has stage 4 prostate cancer diagnosis

James Michael Tyler, the actor best known for playing Gunther - Central Perk's sarcastic coffee shop owner on NBC's hit sitcom Friends - has revealed he's fighting stage 4 prostate cancer.

The actor appeared on Today Monday to discuss his struggles with the disease since his initial diagnosis in 2018, telling NBC anchor Craig Melvin that because he didn't catch the cancer early, it spread more rapidly than usual. During the pandemic, the actor became paralyzed from the waist down due to tumors that grew on his spine.

"For my specific prognoses... it's stage 4. Late-stage cancer," Tyler explained. "So eventually, you know, it's gonna probably get me."

While Tyler's illness kept him from appearing in person at the recent Friends reunion, the actor was determined to remain a part of the event.

"I wanted to be a part of that, and initially I was going to be on the stage, at least, with them, and be able to take part in all the festivities," Tyler told Today. "It was bittersweet, honestly. I was very happy to be included. It was my decision not to be a part of that physically and make an appearance on Zoom, basically, because I didn't wanna bring a downer on it, you know? I didn't want to be like, 'Oh, and by the way, Gunther has cancer.'"

Eric Adams, Andrew Yang Get Nasty During NYC Mayoral Debate

The New York City Democratic debate Wednesday night got particularly heated between mayoral candidates Eric Adams and Andrew Yang.

Adams called out Yang on a number of fronts, including not speaking out sooner on gun violence and “not vot[ing] in municipal elections at all.”

So he asked, “How the hell do we have you become our mayor with this record like this? how will you govern a diverse city like this?”

Yang defended his own record, pointing in part to his involvement in the Georgia races that determined the balance of the U.S. Senate, before hitting back at Adams by saying, “Three out of four shootings in Brooklyn are going unsolved right now. You’re the Brooklyn borough president. The problems have been getting worse around you while you’ve been running for mayor and raising money from your friends in real estate.”

Adams responded by saying Yang hasn’t been “on the ground” and only recently “started discovering” important issues.

He even asked, “So why should we trust you now? You may flee again during a difficult time. I never fled the city, I protected this city.”

Yang retorted by bringing up how Adams has “been investigated for corruption everywhere you’ve gone,” and asked, “Is that really what we want in the next mayor? You think you’re going to enter city hall and it’s going to be different? We all know it’s going to be exactly the same, that’s why so many people on this stage don’t want you to be mayor.”

“I guess they want you to be mayor?” Adams asked with a laugh. “What am I missing here?”

Scott Stringer jumped in to say, “I think you’re both right. You both shouldn’t be mayor.”

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.

Tucker Carlson outed as Secret Source who reportedly dished on Trump, Fox News

Ed Mazza Sun, June 20, 2021, 8:18 PM·1 min read

Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who routinely rails against the mainstream media, is reportedly a secret and frequent source for reporters in the very organizations he attacks, according to the New York Times.

“Mr. Carlson, a proud traitor to the elite political class, spends his time when he’s not denouncing the liberal media trading gossip with them,” wrote media columnist Ben Smith. “He’s the go-to guy for sometimes-unflattering stories about Donald J. Trump and for coverage of the internal politics of Fox News (not to mention stories about Mr. Carlson himself).”

He wrote that Carlson’s willingness to dish is an “open secret” in Washington.

Smith said he trades messages with Carlson himself, and said 16 other journalists from outlets other than the Times had all said Carlson has been a source, with three calling him a “great source.”

Carlson’s rhetoric has turned increasingly extremist, airing conspiracy theories about the Jan. 6 insurrection, the coronavirus pandemic, vaccination and more. He’s also railed against immigrants, and both he and his guests have aired white nationalist talking points.

The Godfather Part II

A masterpiece, pure and simple. Fabulous performances all around. Pacino with those black holes for eyes. The young DeNiro, with that thin, wolfish face, with young Tessio and Clemenza, gradually assuming power in Little Italy. The sad endings of Fredo, Kay, and Frank Pentangeli. The deft transitions between the past and present: the young family's trip to Corleone with their children; the assassination attempts of both Michael and Don Corleone, which they both survive; the betrayals from inside the family (Carlo/Tessio in part I, Frankie/Fredo in part II, along with their fates), the great sequence in Cuba. The narrative parallels between parts I and II; beginning with a huge celebration (Connie's wedding/Anthony's First Communion party); the massacres of all enemies at the end (all Five Family heads/Hyman Roth, the old Don back in Italy, Frankie and Fredo in part II). Even the doomed Sonny turns up as a ghost memory at the end, berating his younger brother for enlisting in the Marines. And all of it lovingly photographed by Gordon Willis in those golden lights and shadows. I love Part I, but I truly think Part II is the greatest American film ever made. I NEVER tire of watching it.

I have a moral question, what would you do in this situation?

A cute cat has been hanging around my yard. I've been feeding him for several weeks now.

I looked online at one of those "lost and found animal" pages on Facebook to see if anyone had reported him missing, and found that several people in my area have been worried about him for some time. He regularly crosses a busy street, he's always hungry, and he's apparently full of fleas and mites - but - he does have a home. Apparently the owner has been contacted by volunteers from the lost and found cat group and she refuses to take him to the vet to get him fixed or attend to his fleas/mites. I live in a quiet area, but there's a major thoroughfare a few blocks away which he crosses.

I have a couple of cats who don't seem to mind him (yes, they've been treated for fleas and mites because of him), and I'm just wondering....is it wrong if I decide, "fuck it" and take him to the vet myself and keep him?? I have a large yard and a gazebo where he could safely enjoy the outdoors and he'd have a very good and spoiled life here with me.

What would you do? I'd like to keep him, but, is that wrong? He really needs to see a vet. I feel so bad for the poor thing.

My Left Foot director: It's not right for non-disabled actors to play disabled characters.

Jim Sheridan, a six-time Academy Award nominee, told Sky News he does "not think it's right anymore" for "able-bodied" actors to play disabled characters

There has been criticism in recent years from leading figures in the TV and film industry of what is known as "cripping up", which often involves non-disabled actors mimicking the physical characteristics of impairments to play disabled characters

Actress and comedian Sally Phillips has said it is just as unacceptable as "blackface".

Sheridan, who was nominated for a best director Oscar for his work on My Left Foot, told Sky News: "I don't think you could make it today. I don't think you could make it without trying to find somebody physically impaired (to play the lead role).

"I think it's a different world and you'd be duty bound."

On non-disabled actors playing disabled roles, Sheridan added: "I don't think it's right anymore. We've gone past that.

"In My Left Foot, we had disabled kids in the movie and I could understand why Daniel stayed in character and never broke out.

"He wanted to respect them so he stayed in character the entire time for 20 weeks and that's as far as he could go as an able-bodied person playing a disabled person."

Olympics-NZ weightlifter Hubbard to become first transgender athlete to compete at Games

WELLINGTON (Reuters) - Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard will become the first transgender athlete to compete at the Olympics after being selected by New Zealand for the women's event at the Tokyo Games, a decision set to reignite a debate over inclusion and fairness in sport.

Hubbard will compete in the super-heavyweight 87+kg category, her selection made possible by an update to qualifying requirements in May.

The 43-year-old, who will be the oldest lifter at the Games, had competed in men's weightlifting competitions before transitioning in 2013.

"I am grateful and humbled by the kindness and support that has been given to me by so many New Zealanders," Hubbard said in a statement issued by the New Zealand Olympic Committee (NZOC) on Monday.

NZOC chief Kereyn Smith said it was an "historic moment in sport and for the New Zealand team."

"She is our first Olympian who has transitioned from male to female," she told reporters.

"We do know that there are many questions about fairness of transgender athletes competing in the Olympic Games but I would like to take this opportunity to remind us all that Laurel has met all of the required criteria."

Hubbard has been eligible to compete at Olympics since 2015, when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) issued guidelines allowing any transgender athlete to compete as a woman provided their testosterone levels are below 10 nanomoles per litre for at least 12 months before their first competition.

Some scientists have said the guidelines do little to mitigate the biological advantages of those who have gone through puberty as males.

Advocates for transgender inclusion argue the process of transition decreases that advantage considerably, and that physical differences between athletes mean there is never truly a level playing field.

The New Zealand government gave its support.

"We are proud of her as we are of all our athletes, and will be supporting her all the way," Sports Minister Grant Robertson said.

Weightlifting has been at the centre of the debate over the fairness of transgender athletes competing against women, and Hubbard's presence in Tokyo could prove divisive.

Save Women's Sport Australasia, a group opposed to transgender women competing in women's sports, said Hubbard's selection was allowed by "flawed policy from the IOC".

"Males do have a performance advantage that is based on their biological sex," the group's co-founder Katherine Deves told Reuters TV.

"They outperform us on every single metric - speed, stamina, strength. Picking testosterone is a red herring ... We are forgetting about the anatomy, the fast, rich muscle, the bigger organs."

The IOC has consistently said it is committed to inclusion but the organisation is also reviewing its guidelines to take into account the "perceived tension between fairness/safety and inclusion/non-discrimination".

Hubbard's gold medal wins at the 2019 Pacific Games in Samoa, where she topped the podium ahead of Samoa's Commonwealth Games champion Feagaiga Stowers, triggered outrage in the host nation.

Samoa's weightlifting boss said Hubbard's selection for Tokyo would be like letting athletes dope and feared it could cost the small Pacific nation a medal.

Belgian weightlifter Anna Vanbellinghen said last month allowing Hubbard to compete at Tokyo was unfair for women and "like a bad joke".

Former New Zealand weightlifter Tracey Lambrechs said she had to make way in the super-heavyweight category at the Commonwealth Games for Hubbard.

"When I was told to drop the category because Laurel was obviously going to be their number one super, it was heartbreaking, like super soul-destroying," the Olympian told TVNZ.

"And it's unfortunate that some female, somewhere is like, 'Well I'm going to miss out on going to the Olympics, on achieving my dream, representing my country because a transgendered athlete is able to compete."

Hubbard, who injured herself during competition at the Commonwealth Games and thought her career was over, thanked New Zealanders.

'Bachelor' Alum Colton Underwood Spotted On Date With Mystery Man After Coming Out As Gay

Following reports that he's not in a rush to date right now, Colton Underwood was spotted on what could very well have been a date.

The 29-year-old Bachelor alum – who came out as gay earlier this month – was photographed Monday having lunch with a mystery man in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles, California.

Colton sported a white T-shirt under a grey hoodie, dark workout shorts, white sneakers and a navy-blue baseball cap, while his buddy wore blue jeans, black sneakers, and a navy-blue T-shirt under a grey, zipped-up jacket.

At one point, the former football player had his arms crossed atop the table as he leaned in to chat with his companion, who was seen laughing and talking with this hands.

After their lunch, the two men reportedly hugged for a while and then went off in separate directions.

Reps for Underwood have not yet responded to Radar's request for comment.

Hot Greek Husband Confesses To Murdering His British Wife

Charalambos 'Babis' Anagnostopoulos has confessed to murdering his wife Caroline Crouch at their home in Glyka Nera, Athens after initially claiming she died in a robbery, police say

The husband of a British woman found dead in Greece has confessed to officers, police say. Charalambos 'Babis' Anagnostopoulos made the admission as police investigated the murder of his wife Caroline Crouch on May 11, Greek Police tweeted.

Student Caroline died in front of her 11-month-old child at their home in Glyka Nera, Athens. Her husband initially said his wife had been killed in a robbery while he was tied up, however officers reportedly found evidence which undermined his version of events.

Today, Greek Police said: "Investigation of the homicide of a 20-year-old native that took place on May 11, 2021, in Glyka Nera. "The perpetrator is her 33-year-old husband, who confessed to his act." He reportedly confessed after more than eight hours of interrogation. Hellenic Police confirmed the husband had 'admitted to his actions'. A spokesman added: "He has not yet been charged due to bureaucratic behaviour."

Police flew by helicopter to a Greek island where Caroline Crouch's husband Charalambos 'Babis' Anagnostopoulos was mourning her death with relatives to speak with him earlier today, reports say. It was claimed they approached him discreetly following a memorial service near the cemetery of Alonissos and told him they had new information that he should see immediately. According to local reports, he was asked to follow the officers back to police headquarters in Athens. He was not arrested.

The mayor of Alonissos, Petros Vafinis, told newsit.gr: "The police were very discreet and there was no disturbance at the memorial. I do not know if he has been called for identification or to give a new statement."

Helicopter pilot Anagnostopoulos, 33, previously told police that a gang of robbers broke into his home while he was sleeping. He claimed they burst in at about 5am, tied and gagged him and his wife and demanded cash and jewellery at gunpoint. The accused said he then told them where to find about £10,000 worth of euros in a Monopoly box - cash that the couple had on hand to pay builders after buying land.
