I just watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) for the first time, to see what the fuss was about.

Why is it that a low budget horror film from the mid-70s is able to create a better atmosphere for horror than modern day movies can, with all that is at our fingertips now? Is it the fact its low budget, so it looks less polished? The whole movie looked dirty and grimy, which I appreciated.

I liked that all the main characters were pretty normal looking, nothing special. Of course the cutest of the guys (with the pert butt) had to die first, but oh well.

I am glad to have finally seen it. For context, I came of age in the late-90s: the era of the self-referential and meta horror movies. It's interesting to go back in time and try and imagine how people felt when they first watched this and the effect it had. Honestly, it seems like it is just good, shlocky, b-grade movie fun. Like, I could imagine late night viewings of it back in the day.

The guy in the wheelchair was pretty annoying, and the sister needed to stop screaming for 2 seconds. Like, at one point she's escaping the house and you see the guy with the chainsaw run in the other direction... so she starts screaming and he immediately corrects his course! Shut up, lady!

The end of it went on slightly too long for me too, but overall I really appreciated how short this movie was. I wish the 80 minute movie would come back in fashion, they feel a lot tighter and I don't get restless.

What are your thoughts on this film?

Adult Brady Bunch remake from hell

I'm 40. I grew up in a deeply religious family in the Midwest. My mother died of cancer four years ago. I've lived on a coast since college.

My father sent me a text about a year ago that he'd met a woman in his church's widowed support group. That's great! I think everyone deserves companionship. Then, this week he called and said they've decided to get married He asked me to be the best man.

The trouble is: I haven't come out to my father or 2 sisters because they are all fundamentalist Christian. His next wife has two sons and a daughter, who are like machine-pressed hetero fraternity and sorority types. The two brothers will no doubt analyze me to death whenever we would hang out.

I want to skip the wedding and not be part of this new system — which would hurt me badly but satisfy him — at all. I don't want to hurt my dad by coming out.He's already dealt with too much with mom dying early. He is so religious and I live so far away, my plan was to just wait it out until he died. It's not like I have a boyfriend anyway. Is this crazy? Please be real with me, DL, because I have been talking with friends for weeks and have been getting nowhere definitive.

Will William Be a Popular King?

I think William will not be very well liked as king. Of course the UK press will cover for him and push him on as the well and the good, but I just think the Royals will become even less relevant with him at the helm. Social media is more powerful than the Rags so even the old PR tricks won't always be as effective in the future.

He'll get the big stuff right which will go a long way of managing the store. He's level headed and keeps his drama and tantrums behind closed doors. He knows the job and has been slowly stepping into a leadership position. So doing the job will not be an issue for William. That said, I just think the shine will really fall off during Charles and William's reigns. William's saving grace will be Kate. She'll be carrying that family on her back. Hopefully, the children don't grow up to be cunts but rich and powerful kids are always a toss up.

Shelley Winters

We've never fully discussed, praised and trashed Shelley Winters like we have other stars. And I'm afraid that our younger gaylings may not even know who she was. She led a very colorful life which she detailed in TWO autobiographies.

She took some of Hollywood's finest cock. Marlon Brando, Burt Lancaster, Vittorio Gassman.

She was roommates with Marilyn Monroe and credits herself with teaching Marilyn the famous lips parted, alluring smile.

She's played in some great movies, even though at times her acting sucks. She's laughably bad in "I Am A Camera" and if I had been Julie Harris, I would have demanded she be removed from the picture. I still don't see how in her later career, she got good roles. Did she work for cheap? Everybody praises her in "Lolita" but I don't think she does anything that 10 other actresses couldn't have done (and they would have done the nude scene she refused to do).

She sort of modeled herself as one of the queens of acting theory, so much so that she even made a cultural exchange trip to Russia during the Iron Curtain days.

Later in her career, she because the queen of the talk show circuit, often showing herself to be a cunt of the highest order. Here she is pouring a glass of water over a very pompous, and probably drunk, Oliver Reed. I've discussed this clip with other people, and while Reed was being a total dick, Shelley just proves the point he was trying to make.

So, post all your love, hate and sentiment here for Shelley Winters.

Luke Evans at the gym with a very hot mystery man...

Luke Evans, a talented stage and screen performer, and accomplished purveyor of the Instagram thirst trap, has just shared another sweaty post-workout photo showing off his shredded six-pack abs.

The 41-year-old actor—best known for playing the buff bad guy Gaston in 2017's Beauty and the Beast remake—has spent the last eight months of the pandemic upping the intensity of his workout and getting back into amazing shape as he prepares to return to a busy working schedule. And naturally, he has been posting regular physique updates, because did a workout even happen if you're not sending your followers into a thirst frenzy?

After training hard at home for the duration of the United Kingdom's lockdown, Evans is now back at City Athletic gym in London, and celebrated this week's return to semi-normal by taking a photo with his pal, trainer and City Athletic founder Shaun Stafford.

"Two buddies who are happy to be back training at the gym!!!" He wrote in the caption, referring to the U.K.'s easing of Covid restrictions on April 12, which has seen gyms and fitness centers open their doors for the first time in 2021.

"Excuse me, do you mind if I borrow your abs?" said actor Zoe Terakes in a comment. "I have some cheese that needs grating." Terakes and Evans are co-stars in the upcoming Hulu drama series Nine Perfect Strangers, based on a novel by Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty. Evans plays Lars, an attorney and "spa junkie" spending 10 days at a prestigious wellness retreat. If his most recent spate of workout photos are anything to go by, he'll be pretty convincing in the role.

Oakland youth arrested for a series of failed armed robberies

Kid squeals like a pig when one victim bodyslams him.

This is the moment an underage armed carjacker squealed after being body slammed to the ground by a would-be victim who fought back.

Surveillance footage caught the moment two kids, one armed, approached the burly man outside his home in San Leandro, California, last week.

The would-be carjacking victim then kneels on the child who begins squealing while his accomplice yells 'let him go!'

Afterwards, the visibly shaken children ran away and fled in a white Kia leaving the gun in the middle of the street.

The boys and two other pals - all of them aged between 11 and 14 - embarked on a multi-day crime spree which also saw a bank customer and two other drivers targeted.

It began six hours before the boy was filmed being bodyslammed, when he and his accomplice tried to rob a customer at a nearby Chase bank.

They fled empty-handed after their intended victim told them he was an off-duty police officer.

Police were able to connect all the attempted robberies with multiple surveillance tapes and pieced together that the same getaway car was used in each incident, Kron 4 news reports.

Days after the filmed carjacking attempt, both suspects and a third underage boy were caught by police after attempting to carjack another victim in nearby Oakland.

Oakland Police found the trio driving the same white car captured in the body slam video, and later set them free.

They were released to their guardians and are then said to have attempted yet another carjacking with a fourth pal three days after being freed, on April 19.

Police arrested the boys again, and have referred the cases to the Alameda County Juvenile Justice Center for prosecution.

But the car owner immediately goes on the defensive and picks up the armed child before hurling him onto the road, sending his gun clattering across the ground.

Celebrities you're surprised are still alive

I'm surprised that Nancy Olson (Betty in Sunset Boulevard) is still alive, while the rest of the cast is long gone. I suppose it's not surprising given the age difference between her and everyone else in the film, but still ... the film featured several people associated with the silent era. I guess this makes it more impressive to me.

Another surprise is jazz vocalist Helen Merrill, for similar reasons. She got her start in the 1950s and recorded with, eg, Clifford Brown, whom I associate with an earlier (and long gone) generation of jazz musicians.

but dataloungers who lived in nyc had a different view. the subways were never easier to use. any crime was not happening where dataloungers lived. nyc would become a mecca for work-from-home because why work from home in scarsdale? and the businesses that were closing would leave room for new and more interesting businesses to start up.

Bullshit Cat Memes

During times of stress and anxiety, I can usually score a little piece of mind off pictures of cuddly animals - most popularly cats. Technological advances in bandwidth now allow gifs that play as well as videos.

However, I’m observing a troubling level of heinous bullshit lately.

1. Baby talk from cats; cats may have speech impediments or refuse to talk, but none of them talks like my demented three-year old niece - NONE of them

2. Gifs that do nothing; a disturbing trend is a gif moniker that simply makes the picture flash or produce a small Shaq in the corner

3. Videos that take me offsite to gfycat or instagram or youtube; If I wanted to watch shit on that platform I’d do so

4. Reboots of old memes using fresh faces; yeah it’s a pretty baby who is funny but it was done in 2009 by an older cat and we don’t need another version

5. Animal hoarders pretending they won’t hoard; I’m happy you snagged another animal and your farm is cleaner than it was the last time you snatched an animal, but you don’t have to create drama around every “rescue” you make. That raccoon waddled around just fucking fine before you put a splint on its foot. OK, it was probably a “re-enactment”, but you should have had the camera. You didn’t; you can’t make raccoons perform a re-enactment.

The Warren Gays Are Still Pissed At Mayor Pete

Can you believe this hot garbage was published in a law review? The fuck?

“ This Article argues that Mayor Pete Buttigieg seized the national imagination and a substantial number of Democratic delegates through the combination of his gay identity and his alignment with masculinity norms generally assigned to heterosexual men, and by taking aim at more senior and qualified women candidates, namely Senators Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar. Buttigieg’s unprecedented success suggests that some White gay men now enjoy a unique pathway to reclaiming their status as men and asserting White male privilege. In short, contrary to pervasive media claims, Buttigieg’s success should be read as a breakthrough for certain White gay men, but not for the LGBTQ community generally. Indeed, Buttigieg’s appeal to White heterosexuals may signify a growing chasm between the “G” and everyone else who identifies with a term included in that acronym. The lack of enthusiasm for Buttigieg’s candidacy—and in some cases outright repudiation of Buttigieg—among LGBTQ folks who are women, people of color, queer, transgender, and/or younger reflects an objection to the “respectability politics” that have fueled the movement since the 1990s. The Mayor Pete backlash, which was closely followed by the convergence of a historic racial uprising and a remixed Pride Month, suggests that the future of LGBTQ rights is intersectionality

Righteous and Entitled Asshole of the Day

“An anti-mask Texas school board candidate got the shock of her life when she was arrested — despite her "right" to be there.

The bodycam footage from the Sunset Valley Police Department shows Lake Travis ISD hopeful Kara Bell lecturing two officers on how the law works... until they eventually lose patience and return the lesson.

The incident occurred on April 7, when police were called to an altercation at a Nordstrom Rack on Brodie Lane; employees claimed Bell had tried to enter a changing room without a mask; the worker claimed she shoved her way in before deploying the classic opening Karen gambit: calling corporate office.

———————————-

Outside, Bell insisted it was she who was assaulted... but refused to identify herself, making taking a report of the incident a bit difficult for the officers.

Bell was given an assault citation, a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by up to $500.

She told officers she wanted to press charges against the Nordstrom employee, and completed a victim statement to that effect. According to the Austin American-Statesman, the employee initially was given a citation for assault by contact, but it was voided after two employee witnesses corroborated her testimony.

Nordstrom managers told police that earlier that day, a group of 10 to 12 people had also targeted the store by attempting to shop without masks on.

Police Chief Lenn Carter told the publication that Bell is part of a group that is planning another upcoming anti-mask protest, and that their activities are putting a strain on his 12-officer department.

"If they think they can come here and do that in our city anonymously, they can't," he said. "Our officers should be out there with crime prevention and responding to calls for help, not being used as political pawns or ploys for somebody's political ambition."

Bell is currently challenging incumbent Lauren White for a seat on the Lake Travis school board.”

The intervention is significant because Amazon has shown itself to be an active force in the sports market and would be the sort of partner the European Super League is hoping to attract when it comes to selling television rights.

Is Florida really requiring genital checks in order for kids to play athletics?

I’m seeing this trend on twitter that the Florida legislature is going to require genital checks of kids to play sports to be sure they are matched up with their biological sex. Is that correct?

Chase Strangio the trans aclu lawyer is tweeting and retweeting this, but I’m reading where the law actually says that a note from a doctor would suffice. Also can’t a cheek swab determine sex? I think those have been around since the 60s.

I haven’t been an athlete in school for awhile, but boys at least had somewhat of a genital check for an hernias during an athletic physical.

Mare of Easttown starring the transcendent Kate Winslet with Evan Peters, Jean Smart and Guy Pearce

HBO launched its new series set in the exburbs of a drab small town outside of Philly with a spot on dialect spouting Kate Winslet as a police detective hitting a wall in a dead end missing girl’s case only to be confronted with another young woman murdered a year later. Reviews seem good and it’s very atmospheric and true to Pennsylvania, although not a single WaWa was spotted in the first episode.

Would someone from down under be able to answer my questions?

Is Martin Lymes from All Saints still in jail for sexual assault?

What is Georgie Parker doing these days? I loved her as Terry Sullivan; I watched All Saints up until her character was written out. I hated the reboot as an emergency room drama.

I remember a really cute actor named Damien Rice, who played one of the first gay characters on Australian TV

They have such good quality shows so far. Why do so many of the actors come to the US? It must be ultra competitive down there.

Tasteful friends: an English Country House completed in 1931 in West Mount Airy, Philadelphia, $3.4M

A fairly brilliant and huge house of 10,000 square feet, 7 bedrooms, 8 baths, and 1.25 acres of mature landscaped gardens, commissioned by conductor Leopold Stokowski by architects Mellor & Meigs and completed by Morris E. Leeds.

The interior is wonderfully light and recalls some of Lutyens work (the giant window bay at Little Thakeham, for example.)

Drawbacks: The modern kitchen is a wasted, disappointing space to my eye, but the adjacent pantry is spectacular and more than a sufficient kitchen. The low iron fence should be replaced with some combination of a tall solid fence and high hedges. I might have done something different with the bathrooms, but who cares - the house is spectacular.

I ran out of Haagen Dazs (the only one I buy) so decided to try Turkey Hill Black Cherry. Omg what a mistake. I know people who love Turkey Hill, and I haven’t tried their other flavors, but this one tastes like the icing on a birthday cake but frozen. It doesn’t taste like ice cream.

I’m so upset. What a waste of money.

Tell me about Peter Lawford

Inspired by comments in the “Dean Martin Was so Slimy” thread, Peter Lawford sounds like a beautiful mess:

[quote]Wasn't there some story of Peter Lawford’s mother visiting LB Mayer's office when Peter was a teenager and warning LB that Peter might have homosexual tendencies? Rumors of Peter's bisexuality continued all his life. It was said he and Dominick Dunne were part of a gay surfers' cabal in Malibu in the 1950s.

[quote]Peter Lawford's fetish was S&M according to his last live in girlfriend. She said he had to be whipped and humiliated. His mother seemed to take sadist delight in humiliating him and I never read why she did that. He had no self esteem because of her. I think the bitch was demonic.

[quote]After Christopher was born, Peter complained to his wife Pat that the baby cried too much, slept irregularly and made the house and his clothes smell like shit. He convinced Pat to have their first born child live with a nanny in an apartment down the street. BTW, Christopher was born on the same day as Joey Luft and in the same hospital.

[quote]Peter Lawford would watch his own son fuck prostitutes. Yes. He actually did that.

[quote]Peter dated Dorothy Dandridge but had to keep it under wraps because of people's views on mixed marriages. Understandable. I read that he was heartbroken when she died. He was one of her pallbearers. I don't know why he went off the rails like he did. He really turned into a dirtball in his later years; his toupee in the 70s was so awful, looking like a mogwai on his head.

For once, I agree with Cornel West!

From his opinion piece in the WAPO:

Upon learning to read while enslaved, Frederick Douglass began his great journey of emancipation, as such journeys always begin, in the mind. Defying unjust laws, he read in secret, empowered by the wisdom of contemporaries and classics alike to think as a free man. Douglass risked mockery, abuse, beating and even death to study the likes of Socrates, Cato and Cicero.

Long after Douglass’s encounters with these ancient thinkers, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. would be similarly galvanized by his reading in the classics as a young seminarian — he mentions Socrates three times in his 1963 “Letter From Birmingham Jail.”

Yet today, one of America’s greatest Black institutions, Howard University, is diminishing the light of wisdom and truth that inspired Douglass, King and countless other freedom fighters. Amid a move for educational “prioritization,” Howard University is dissolving its classics department. Tenured faculty will be dispersed to other departments, where their courses can still be taught. But the university has sent a disturbing message by abolishing the department.

Academia’s continual campaign to disregard or neglect the classics is a sign of spiritual decay, moral decline and a deep intellectual narrowness running amok in American culture. Those who commit this terrible act treat Western civilization as either irrelevant and not worthy of prioritization or as harmful and worthy only of condemnation.

Sadly, in our culture’s conception, the crimes of the West have become so central that it’s hard to keep track of the best of the West. We must be vigilant and draw the distinction between Western civilization and philosophy on the one hand, and Western crimes on the other. The crimes spring from certain philosophies and certain aspects of the civilization, not all of them.

The Western canon is, more than anything, a conversation among great thinkers over generations that grows richer the more we add our own voices and the excellence of voices from Africa, Asia, Latin America and everywhere else in the world. We should never cancel voices in this conversation, whether that voice is Homer or students at Howard University. For this is no ordinary discussion.

The Western canon is an extended dialogue among the crème de la crème of our civilization about the most fundamental questions. It is about asking “What kind of creatures are we?” no matter what context we find ourselves in. It is about living more intensely, more critically, more compassionately. It is about learning to attend to the things that matter and turning our attention away from what is superficial.

Howard University is not removing its classics department in isolation. This is the result of a massive failure across the nation in “schooling,” which is now nothing more than the acquisition of skills, the acquisition of labels and the acquisition of jargon. Schooling is not education. Education draws out the uniqueness of people to be all that they can be in the light of their irreducible singularity. It is the maturation and cultivation of spiritually intact and morally equipped human beings.

The royal funeral will bring the two brothers together for the first time in a year, following Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to walk away from the royal family. The Queen has signed off plans which will see Harry and William walking behind Philip's coffin as it makes its way to St George's Chapel. She has decided on "each and every" detail of her husband's funeral to ensure his wishes are carried out as much as possible under the trying circumstances of the pandemic.

Former Golden Globes president calls BLM a ''hate movement''

An email sent Sunday by a former Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. president criticizing Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors and likening BLM to a hate group touched off a firestorm among many of the organization’s members.

In the email, Phil Berk, who served eight terms as HFPA president, shared a post that called BLM a “racist hate movement” and described Cullors as “the self-proclaimed ‘trained Marxist.’” It was sent out to the association’s members, its staff and the group’s general counsel and chief operating officer, Gregory Goeckner.

The email lands at a sensitive time for the HFPA, which has come under pressure for not having any Black members as well as allegations of ethical and financial lapses raised in a Times investigation into the group. Last month, the group behind the Golden Globe Awards pledged to make “transformational change” and retained a strategic diversity advisor, Shaun Harper, a professor of racial, gender and LGBTQ issues at USC’s Marshall School of Business, and an outside law firm, Ropes & Gray, to audit and review its policies and membership requirements and bylaws. The HFPA, which in recent weeks has reached out to the National Assn. of Black Journalists and NAACP, plans to announce a set of reforms on May 6.

While Berk, 88, did not cite a source or provide a link to his email post, it appears to be have been an article originally published under the headline “BLM Goes Hollywood” that appeared on conservative commentator David Horowitz’s Freedom Center website, FrontPage Mag, on April 12.

Tasteful friends: Badynghams, a 15thC house in Great Waltham, near Chelmsford, Essex, £1.1M

A smaller house of the 15thC of E-shape and half-timbered construction with end walls and fantastic chimneys in brick giving it great stature. Located on the town square with four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, adjacent the 12thC church and cemetery, with with an enclosed courtyard garden.

The property was mentioned in documents from 1371 but probably dates to the next century. It has undergone a fair amount of early alterations, with some Elizabethan fireplaces and a restoration of 1992 in which "a significant investment was made restoring and replacing bricks and timbers to allow this exceptional house to continue its journey and be enjoyed for years to come." It's not entirely of one specific period with some alterations layered on but in an agreeable way. The drawing room was a bit romantically/rustically "restored" in the 20thC it appears, and some rooms have more historic integrity than others but it's a wonderful small house of just 2500 square feet but with the architectural impact of a much bigger house. And the setting is ideal and with a lot of privacy for a house in town.

It's about 10km /6mi to Chelmsford which is 66km/41mi or an hour by train to central London.

Oscar Nominations and Win You Love

Mine need no introduction and I’m sure one of you will happily oblige on my behalf, so I’ll start with one of my favorite actresses nominations and wins.

[bold]Tootsie[/bold]: Lange is effervescent in here, displaying an aching subtlety and bittersweet melancholy that grounds the film, giving a rare poignancy to what is essentially a slapstick, though extremely witty, comedy. Her performance elicits autonomous sensory meridian responses to the max. I love that she won the Oscar for her brilliantly understated work here, which compliments and highlights her win for her explosive work in Blue Sky quite nicely.

[bold]Frances[/bold]: In one of the best performances in cinema history, Lange reaches Olympian heights as a troubled star would-be serious thespian, her mercurial visage flickering from quiet melancholy and sardonic contempt to white-hot fury and, finally, pained, darkened hope trapped in a void. A shattering performance.

[bold]Country[/bold]: Lange's work here, in what is the best and grittiest of the "80s farm films," carries all of the weight of an Andrew Wyeth painting: she is both graceful and severe; luminous and haunting; tender and brittle; fragile and steadfast. She exhibits a simplicity and naturalness that is effortless, beguiling and, ultimately, galvanizing.

[bold]Sweet Dreams[/bold]: From spitfire beginning to explosive - literally - end, Lange's performance is infused with an infectious exuberance and joie de vivre that is measured and composed by Patsy Cline's own voice rather than by a valiant attempt at imitation or interpretation; this is perhaps the greatest honor one could pay Cline because no one could sing like her. Lange, with the help of the equally brilliant Ed Harris and Ann Wedgeworth (who, dare I say, make her work possible), channels Cline's ephemeral electric essence like a live wire. As Pauline Kael, the jealous rube, wrote, “When Lange's Patsy slings her strong young body around she gives off a charge. Lange has real authority here, and the performance holds you emotionally. This is one of the few times I've seen people cry at a movie that wasn't sentimental--it's an honest tearjerker. People can cry without feeling they've been had.”

[bold]Music Box[/bold]: One of my favorite performances of Lange's. It sort of leaves me dumbstruck and speechless. Kael said it best when she wrote of Lange's work here: "What counts is the Old World, New World texture that Jessica Lange brings to toughness. Her beautiful throatiness counts. She has the will and the technique to take a role that's really no more than a function of melodrama and turn this movie into a cello concerto." Her descent into the embodiment of Dieric Bouts's Weeping Madonna is both profound and cathartic.

[bold]Blue Sky[/bold]: I will never understand why her performance in this film continues to be so underrated. What Lange does with what is perhaps my favorite of her performances is utterly riveting, transcendent, and nearly peerless. You would have to go back to the stars and thespians of a bygone era - a few of which she purposefully emulates in the film - like Monroe, Taylor, Bardot, and Leigh, to get a performance as simultaneously vital, sexy, potent, volatile, and succulent as Lange’s is in this film. It still astonishes me that she managed to go from the drab, dowdy, albeit genius, work of something like Men Don't Leave to this: something so shiny, intoxicating, and brilliant. It thrills me that she won not only the Oscar but LAFCA for this. It's a performance that is equal parts depressing, heartbreaking, infuriating, and uplifting.

I would have also nominated her for Best Actress in Men Don't Leave, Everybody's All-American, and Losing Isaiah, and Best Supporting Actress for Crimes of the Heart, Cape Fear, Rob Roy, given her the win in this category for Titus, and nominated her again for Don't Come Knocking.

West Point accuses more than 70 cadets of cheating in worst academic scandal in nearly 45 years

WASHINGTON – More than 70 cadets at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point were accused of cheating on a math exam, the worst academic scandal since the 1970s at the Army's premier training ground for officers.

Fifty-eight cadets admitted cheating on the exam, which was administered remotely because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most of them have been enrolled in a rehabilitation program and will be on probation for the remainder of their time at the academy. Others resigned, and some face hearings that could result in their expulsion.

The scandal strikes at the heart of the academy's reputation for rectitude, espoused by its own moral code, which is literally etched in stone:

“A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do.”

Tim Bakken, a law professor at West Point, called the scandal a national security issue. West Point cadets become senior leaders the nation depends on.

"There’s no excuse for cheating when the fundamental code for cadets is that they should not lie, cheat or steal," Bakken said. "Therefore when the military tries to downplay effects of cheating at the academy, we're really downplaying the effects on the military as a whole. We rely on the military to tell us honestly when we should fight wars, and when we can win them."

“The Honor process is working as expected and cadets will be held accountable for breaking the code," McCarthy said in a statement.

“The honor system at West Point is strong and working as designed," Lt. Gen. Darryl Williams, the academy's superintendent, said in a statement. "We made a deliberate decision to uphold our academic standards during the pandemic. We are holding cadets to those standards.”

Army Col. Mark Weathers, West Point's chief of staff, said in an interview Monday that he was "disappointed" in the cadets for cheating, but he did not consider the incident a serious breach of the code. It would not have occurred if the cadets had taken the exam on campus, he said.

"Our West Point cadets are the cream of the crop and are expected to demonstrate unimpeachable character and integrity," Speier said. "They must be held to the same high standard during remote learning as in-person."

Instructors initially determined that 72 plebes, or first-year cadets, and one yearling, or second-year cadet, had cheated on a calculus final exam in May. Those cadets all made the same error on a portion of the exam.

Recently concluded investigations and preliminary hearings for the cadets resulted in two cases being dismissed for lack of evidence and four dropped because the cadets resigned. Of the remaining 67 cases, 55 cadets were found in violation of the honor code and enrolled in a program for rehabilitation Dec. 9. Three more cadets admitted cheating but were not eligible to enroll in what is called the Willful Admission Program.

Cadets in the program are matched with a mentor and write journals and essays on their experience. The process can take up to six months. Cadets in the program are essentially on academic probation.

The remaining cadets accused of cheating face administrative hearings in which a board of cadets will hear the case and decide whether a violation of the code occurred. Another board will recommend penalties, which could include expulsion. West Point's superintendent has the final say on punishment.

One of the biggest cheating scandals among the nation's taxpayer-funded military colleges occurred in 1976 when 153 cadets at West Point resigned or were expelled for cheating on an electrical engineering exam.

Less than half as many cadets were involved in the current cheating case, and all but one was a first-year student, Peterson said. The first-year students are relatively new to the expectations and programs designed to develop ethics and leadership at the academy.

The pandemic has overturned college life as distance learning and exams supplanted in-person learning.

West Point switched to remote learning after spring break last year as the pandemic spread.

Neighbor who tossed an elderly Jewish woman off a balcony while yelling 'Allahu Akbar' avoids trial because he smoked weed

France's top court ruled on Wednesday that the killer of an elderly Jewish woman will not go on trial, France24 reported.

Kobili Traoré admitted to murdering his neighbor, Sarah Halimi, in 2017. He shouted "Allahu Akbar," or "God is great" in Arabic, and "I killed the devil," shortly before throwing her off the balcony of her third-floor Paris apartment, The New York Times said.

On Wednesday, the Court of Cassation - France's final court of appeal - affirmed two prior judgments that ruled that Traoré could not be held criminally responsible for his actions because he was in a state of drug-induced psychosis.

Traoré, a drug dealer, smoked pot every day for 13 years and had up to 15 joints a day, Israel Hayom reported. Toxicological analysis revealed the presence of cannabis in his blood on the day he was arrested, the French newspaper Libération said.

The court noted that "a person is not criminally responsible if suffering, at the time of the event, from psychic or neuropsychic disturbance that has eliminated all discernment or control," The Times said.

Traoré will be held in mental health institutions until doctors deem him fit to return to society, according to reports.

In December 2019, President Emmanuel Macron made a rare intervention by criticizing the Paris appeals court for saying that Traore was unfit for trial.

"Even if, in the end, the judge decided that there was no criminal responsibility, there is a need for a trial," Macron said in 2020.

The country's top magistrates then criticized Macron for impacting the "independence of the justice system," The Times of Israel reported.

The ruling has angered French politicians and France's Jewish community, the largest in Europe.

Dozens of French senators have reacted by proposing a revision to the law that exonerates a crime due to a drug-induced psychosis, The New York Times said.

"In a Lonely Place" by Dorothy B. Hughes----Ever read it?

I just finished the novel "In a Lonely Place," source material for the film by Nicholas Ray with Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Grahame.

Wow! The book was really good, an inside the head view of a psycho killer, written by a woman. And while the film is also good and considered one of the best upscale film noir examples from the '50s---the movie is different from the book in plot, motivation and details. Only a few aspects of the novel are evident in the movie: character names, a WWII fighter pilot background for Dix and the cop who was once in his platoon, the cop's wife (but they cast someone very different from the wife's description), and a couple other things.

Dix Steele in the novel is irredeemable. He's a Tom Ripley before Tom Ripley, living in another guy's apartment, wearing his clothes, driving his car, telling everyone Mel has gone to Rio...He quickly becomes obsessed with his neighbor, Laurel Gray. She likes him, but not as much as he likes her, and she is quickly suspicious because she knew Mel and his going to Rio is weird. Inside, Dix seethes with resentment against women, his uncle who only gives him $250 a month to live on, and anyone who he perceives to be wealthy and living a life of leisure. He is a terrible person and I can understand why the studio, producers, director and Bogart himself would recoil from playing such an awful guy.

And thus, the script is created using tiny nuggets of the original source material, to make Dix Steele a character people could maybe sympathize with, and to not alienate too many fans who prefer him as a hero.

Anyone familiar with both the novel and the film? What do you think?

'Real Housewives of the GOP' — Wannabe reality show narcissists commandeer the party

Donald Trump has proven to be a loser — and a sore one at that — but he has won something. He managed to transform the GOP into a party in his own image: an outsized, narcissistic cast of mini-me sycophants. Just like the maestro, none of them appears to care about actual governing. They’re building their brand first, then following fame and the money.

This has transformed the GOP from a party that once had ideas and credibility into a lame variation on the “Real Housewives” reality TV franchise. Forget the red hats. The real mantra of this new GOP isn’t “America First” — it’s “Me First.”

Like the TV “Housewives,” these new Republicans seek attention, fame and fortune, ignoring credibility. Their success is sometimes short-lived, and often ends in relationship troubles, legal troubles, and worse.

The most obvious recent example is Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.).

TV Insider ran a piece recently detailing the troubles of seven of the TV “Housewives” from various cities. Fame and money are intoxicants. Add a bit of power and the realization that there are people “out there” who buy your special brand of assininity, and the tragedy begins to unfold.

The one thing all “Housewives” have in common is performative outrage.

In one corner, there’s Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). It seems as if he’s never heard a conspiracy to which he wouldn’t subscribe: Remember the FBI Secret Society out to get Trump? Maybe the Congressional committee hearing he conducted on the already disproven effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19? Or maybe the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol? Johnson says those were Leftists pretending to be Trump supporters. The other things Johnson says about Jan. 6 are simply despicable. He puts QAnon star Marjorie Taylor-Greene to shame.

But Johnson has pledged not to run for a third term.

Then there’s Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who would out-flank and out-maneuver Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) eight ways til Sunday to get in front of a TV camera. To create a distraction after his Cancun skedaddle, Cruz went down to the Mexican border – “Broadcast News” style – allegedly spotting members of an immigrant-trafficking cartel who taunted him from across the Rio Grande, down which — allegedly — a dead body floated past. Cruz was mocked.

Ken Burns he’s not. But this Housewife has his eye on the Oval Office.

Traveling with Cruz on the border junket was Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who — it’s abundantly clear — really has no compass. The former “best friend” of the late Sen. John McCain now gushes about Trump’s “magic.” Ideas, vision and credibility be damned — Just give me votes. That’s where Graham would take the party.

Chris Whipple got it exactly right in his most recent book “The Gatekeepers”: There is a stark contrast between politicking and governing. The difference is that governing needs credibility, whereas politicking does not.

Credibility has long been the currency in Washington that defeats swampian politics.

The new GOP wouldn’t understand this distinction if it waddled up and nipped them in the backside. That’s the legacy of the Trump administration – all politics and no governing. In another era it was called “All hat and no cattle.” Trump and his Housewives replaced credibility with a counterfeit currency. Instead of draining the swamp, they’ve put it on steroids.

Arguably, this is all the result of a right-wing alt media echo-chamber run amock, in which self-aggrandizement replaces ideas as the political holy grail.

While these new “GOP Housewives” may provide entertainment of sorts, I fear they bode ill for the country overall.

Thoughtful, responsible GOP lawmakers are leaving public service in droves — or will be driven out. Many of them knew when to leave politics at the door and get into governing mode. With their departure, there will be no “marketplace of ideas.” It’ll just be Democrats talking to themselves — rarely a good thing.

Cruising Horror Stories

Inspired by the thread asking "Do you remember everyone you had sex with?", I thought it would be fun to share odd, scary, funny or otherwise memorable hook-up stories. The sex itself, how good or hot it was, isn’t what’s really important here, but rather the unusual, coincidental, embarrassing or downright horrifying circumstances of, or repercussions from a clandestine sexual encounter. Me first!:

One cold winter night, probably around 1990, I was at The Limelight, an old church that had been turned into a club here in NYC. After drinking and dancing for a good while, I moved into the main event of the evening: the backroom that was upstairs on the top floor of the side building of the church, so I could get my swerve on before going home. I made my way around that pitch-black, pitched-roof room looking, or feeling really, for the right situation. I'd had to fend off one guy who’d been particularly aggressive, but that's normal for this type of entertainment.

I found a cutie I was into, and we tucked ourselves away in a private little corner to get our little freak on. So, we were getting as busy as we could – meaning some kissing, masturbation and maybe a little sucky, even though at the time oral sex in this type of venue was forbidden – “Lips above the hips, guys!” was a familiar command from guys who were there to monitor the practices and keep everyone safe. They’d warn you once, but the second time they caught you, they’d kick you out.

Well, my guy was, in fact, going down on me, and rather well if I recall. After a few minutes, suddenly, to my horror, from the other side of this dark little abyss, I heard some guy yelling, “Oh yeah, (yelling my first and last name), get that cock sucked!"; then again "Yeah, that’s what I said, (using my first and last name again), enjoy getting your cock sucked, man! I guess you’re not into ME, (my name - yet again) but I sure hope you have a good time!" adding my name still again. It was the guy I'd pushed away earlier.

This asshole said my full name, very loudly about five times. The others in the room started shushing him and telling him to shut up.

I was pulled out of my alcohol-fueled horn-fog, and with my mood deflated, so to speak, I decided I should get the fuck out of there. I smooched the guy and made my way out. (continued...)

Andy Cohen talks fallout with Carole Radziwill and drama with Jeff Lewis

Andy Cohen opened up about his falling outs with Carole Radziwill and Jeff Lewis while appearing on Brandi Glanville‘s podcast on Friday, September 25.

While chatting with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member, Andy agreed with Brandi after she slammed the Real Housewives of New York City star for being “bitter and angry” before taking on his past issues with the former Flipping Out personality and sharing his thoughts on the richest Real Housewives.

“I agree [that she seems bitter and angry],” Andy told Brandi on Unfiltered. “I think she’s angry toward the show and me and she felt like I was up Bethenny’s a**.”

Although Brandi suggested that Carole had misinterpreted how close she and Andy actually were before they ended their friendship, Andy denied that their relationship had been incorrectly characterized.

“I don’t think she said we were overly close. We were in each other’s circle for years. We didn’t talk on the phone. We didn’t email but I think we had genuine [care] for each other,” he explained.

As for his feud with Jeff, Andy admitted to feeling betrayed by Jeff after he was let go from his role on Flipping Out.

“There was a moment a couple of years ago where he was in hot water with Bravo and I was texting him things and he wound up reading private texts of mine and it kind of betrayed my trust,” Andy revealed. “He and I have discussed it on the air and off the air. That was for sure a significant hiccup for us.”

Despite the drama, Andy said he and Jeff are currently in a good place and that he likes “him a lot.”

“We still are friends. I think we were probably closer friends when… I was an executive on his show. He was on Watch What Happens Live a lot so we really were in contact by design way more than we are now. [But] I’m grateful that he’s on [my] radio channel,” Andy shared.

When Brandi then asked Andy who he believes are the richest cast members of the Real Housewives franchise, Andy named Adrienne Maloof, who starred on the RHOBH seasons one through three first, while also saying the estimates shared by Celebrity Net Worth are typically far from correct.

“Adrienne always seemed like she had a lot of money. I think [Sutton Stracke] has a lot of money [and] I think [The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Kandi Burruss], for sure [has a lot of money].”

Andy added that Mauricio Umansky, the husband of RHOBH‘s Kyle Richards, “makes a lot of money,” as well.

Ted Nugent catches “ the Chinese shit”

Ted Nugent has spent the past year as one of the many COVID deniers in the Republican party. He has called the virus a “scam” and “not a real pandemic.” He’s even questioned whether half a million really died from coronavirus, calling it “bullsh**.” As for the vaccine, the rocker proclaimed “that’s not a real vaccine. I’m sorry. I ain’t taking no vaccine.”

Now, Nugent, an adamant Donald Trump supporter is eating crow. In a Facebook video Monday he said, “Everybody told me that I should not announce this… I have had flu symptoms for the last ten days. I thought I was dying. Just a clusterf***.”

The 72-year-old goes on to admit he has COVID while using a racial slur, “I was tested positive today. I got the Chinese shit. I’ve got a stuffed-up head, body aches… My God, what a pain in the ass. I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days… So I was officially tested positive for COVID-19 today.”

What is happening to Nugent is just a microcosm of a bigger problem. COVID denial and vaccine conspiracy theories have only added to the hesitancy among a large part of the population.

New York Housewives in Retrospect

I’ve been rewatching early seasons of RHONY on Hulu to avoid real life, and I’m a little surprised by some impressions...

—Bethenny is histrionic but she really is pretty likable and relatable. A far cry from the woman who later lamented that she’s the richest homeless person in New York.

—Jill is overbearing and has a savior complex, but she doesn’t seem like the evil narcissist I remember her to be.

—Ramona has always been Ramona.

—I didn’t remember at all that Ramona instantly hated Alex and Simon, or how desperate and scheming the couple seemed during the first season. I think I may not have ever seen the first season at all because their behavior during that season has totally changed the way I think of them. I used to think of Alex as an underdog and now I see her as a total user thanks to season one.

—LuAnn has always been a pretentious jackass, but she seemed really easy to get along with and not cutting or vicious or nearly as narcissistic when she was married to the count. She is by far the biggest trainwreck of this series. She has fallen far and hit hard.

—Kelly Bensimon has a serious mental illness, something like schizoaffective disorder. She speaks in word salad and contradictions and almost never makes any sense at all. It’s creepy that she was ever cast for comic relief. During ‘Scary Island,’ when she was alternately accusing Bethenny of trying to cut her throat while she slept, Alex channeling the devil, and Gummi Bears and jelly beans, I was impressed that Sonja handled the situation so well. She told the women to stop mocking a disturbed woman and effectively brought Kelly, who seemed to be on Jupiter, down to Earth.

—Sonja was so fun and sweet!

—There was a...Cindy...??!

In summary, the RHONY producers have completely fucked up the show by either scripting the women as all alcoholics or driving them to addiction. Today, when I think of LuAnn, Sonja, Dorinda and the new blonde one, my primary association is “sloppy drunk old lady.”

Tasteful friends... first chance in 209 years

Whatever you make of the house I loved this line in the listing: is currently occupied by the 5th generation of the Spokes family with the property being offered for the first time for sale since the Mill was purchased in 1812.

Further: "Optone" was the name given to Upton in the Doomsday Book of 1086 and the books records an existing mill here. At that time the mill was let by King William I for 12 s, 8d. During the medieval period the ownership of the mill as part of the Manor of Upton passed between several hands, with the tenure granted to the Abbey of St James, Northampton. In 1790 Thomas Samwell inherited the mill who profited from the Dissolution and in 1812 the tenancy of the mill was taken over by the Spokes family.

I mean, the house isn't up to much but what a story....

Real Disco Music (1975 - 1981)

This has been covered ad nauseam here over the years but what the hell. In a recent Captain & Tennille thread I made reference to Paul Jabara, Patrick Cowley, & Two Tons O' Fun (The Weather Girls). A person (who I'm assuming was a young kid) took notice. He had no idea what the hell I was talking about but enjoyed the Paradise Express tune I posted. That little exchange made me feel a bit nostalgic and flung me into the Disco kick that I've been on over the last month.

It's dawned on me that there's an entire generation that has no concept of REAL DISCO MUSIC and what was actually getting play in the clubs back then. They actually think we were dancing to 'Disco Duck', The Bee Gees and 'YMCA'! That wasn't the case! Here I'll be sharing some of the obscure jams I remember packing the floor back in the day. Former Disco heads feel free to share your favorites as well.

I was careful to make the distinction of 1975 to 1982. Any early Disco from pre-1975 is pretty much just R&B/Soul Music. And Hi-NRG (which I also love) came into prominence in 1982 and has a totally different beat. Most Disco Music that sounded like Disco Music was produced from 1975 to 1981.

My first pick is Ultimate's 'Love Is The Ultimate (Medley 2)'. Ultimate was a Philadelphia studio project from the same producers/musicians who also recorded as Strange Affair & Tangerue. All 3 "groups" had a sound that consisted of girly vocals, sweeping strings & kick ass grooves. Ultimate's 'Touch Me Baby/Love Is The Ultimate' was always a crowd-pleaser at the clubs I went to. This particular mix wasn't on the LP but was only available on 12 inch.

Courtney Love implies Sam Lutfi and actor Ross Butler pilfered her bank account while keeping her isolated and doped on Xanax

And, thanks to Marilyn Manson (and her gay hairdresser), she was able to escape. It sounds so insane that I actually believe it, especially given Sam Lutfi's track record. I can envision someone like Courtney getting exploited like this, especially because of her drug problems—manipulators like Lutfi know where to look, and prey on emotionally vulnerable women with big bank accounts. Also, Ross Butler must be a real piece of shit.

Many family members have treated me badly over the years because I'm gay. I eventually distanced myself from nearly all of them. I could start sharing what I know with other family members. It would hurt the people who have wronged me, but it would also hurt a few in the family I still love. So why don't I do it? Why don't I ruin the lives of the many I loathe instead of protecting the feelings of so few? Why don't I do it? Is it cowardice?

Older Movies That Seem Current

and those that seem dated. How even with similar plots one movie can feel "present" and another is like a glimpse into a hard-to-get world. A combination of acting style, direction, cinematography ("and possibly hairdressing," to quote Hitchcock - Name That Quote!), and point of view, I guess. And use of irony, wit, quick humor and acute observation.

Even with the 1930s-1940s banter, the costumes, the sets and all, the whole THE THIN MAN series with Powell and Loy feels contemporary. The Melvyn Douglas and Joan Blondell films are similar - always connected and current.

But nothing that Joan Crawford, Miriam Hopkins, and even Bette Davis, did, with all the directors involved, has that timelessness. As great as many of their movies are, they're dated in a way that is beyond ice boxes, theatrical gestures and bobbed hair. They're fixed, not flexible.

Why I'm leaving Substack!

"I’m leaving Substack. Now let me tell you why. " (Short answer - because of "anti-trans bigotry").

(Skipping paragraphs of self-aggrandizement)

...

"Yet, targeted harassment of individual marginalized people, especially trans people, goes on openly on this website without any action taken by Substack. Graham Linehan, a retired comedy writer who was kicked off Twitter for targeted harassment and transphobia, uses his Substack exclusively to target trans women. He has multiple pieces targeted and doxxing specific trans women in particular. That even this behavior doesn’t lead to censure from Substack is a sign of how little the service cares to protect people from abuse. It indicated the complete failure of the moderation policy they’ve put to paper, but never into practice."

...

"More personally, I can’t ignore that Substack is particularly benefiting from and encouraging a culture of anti-trans bigotry. They’ve done this at a time when there is a powerful movement to roll back the bodily autonomy and healthcare of trans people. Just last week, Arkansas Senate passed a law banning gender-affirming healthcare for trans kids, including reversible (and medically recommended) puberty blockers and hormones. If the governor’s veto is overruled, this will kill and irrevocably harm trans children — and it is the point. This year, over 80 similar ‘model bills’ aiming to roll back trans rights and outlaw treatment have been proposed in numerous state legislatures."

(To summarize - he disagrees with some writers using the platform and wants them banned, but Substack won't do it. So he is flouncing off to a cheaper platform).

The American Plan vs. The Continental Plan vs. The European Plan

[quote]The American Plan, sometimes abbreviated as AP in listings, means that the nightly rate quoted by a hotel or resort includes three meals a day, i.e. breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In the American plan, the meals are provided by the establishment's kitchen and served on site, typically in the dining room

[quote]The Continental Plan, sometimes abbreviated as CP in hotel listings, indicates that the quoted rate includes a continental breakfast. A continental breakfast normally consists of coffee or tea, juice, and bread. The bread may be as simple as a loaf or as appealing as a basket of freshly baked croissants, scones, and muffins. At some facilities, yogurt and fresh fruit may also be available. The Continental Plan breakfast does not include cooked foods, such as pancakes or eggs.

[quote]The European Plan, sometimes abbreviated as EP in hotel listings, indicates that the quoted rate is strictly for lodging and does not include any meals. All food provided by the hotel is billed separately. Taxes and tips are usually additional as well.

The nicest guy in Hollywood! Matt Damon, 50, showcases his muscular physique in a tight top

He is known as one of the nicest guy in Hollywood.

And Matt Damon was winning hearts again on Monday night while enjoying an evening meal with his family in Sydney.

The 50-year-od Good Will Hunting star, who is currently in Australia to film Thor: Love and Thunder, was spotted shaking hands with a waiter at popular Italian eatery Totti's in Bondi Beach.

Matt, who arrived in the city alongside co-star Chris Hemsworth via private jet on Sunday, beamed at the man as he thanked him for looking after his clan during the meal.

The waiter looked somewhat starstruck by the American actor as the two men shook hands.

Matt showcased his muscular physique during the outing by wearing a tight-fitting, long-sleeve T-shirt out to dinner.

The Hollywood heartthrob paired the revealing top with a pair of loose-fitting tight jeans, along with a pair of runners.

The actor was later seen strolling up busy Bondi Road following his dinner at the restaurant.

Matt proved his nice guy credentials once again on Sunday after giving an airport employee a bear hug after disembarking a private jet.

Earlier this month, Matt enjoyed a well-deserved holiday to surf haven Noosa alongside his family and friends - including Chris' younger brother, Liam, 31.

Noosa is a regular haunt for both the Hemsworth brothers and Matt, who have all been spotted spending time at Double Island Point and Rainbow Beach in the area years prior.

Chris and Matt first holidayed at the tourist hotspot together in 2018, while the siblings enjoyed a trip there last July alongside Chris' wife Elsa Pataky and their children; India, Sasha and Tristan.

Matt had made a brief cameo in Thor: Ragnarok, where he played Thor's brother Loki in a short skit.

In the 2017 film, the play was called 'The Tragedy Of Loki' and featured four celebrity cameos.

Matt Damon as Loki, Luke as Thor, Sam Neill as Odin, and Cate Blanchett as Thor's evil sister Hela.

'Exterminate All the Brutes': Four-part documentary on white colonialism, genocide.

Josh Hartnett stars in Raoul Peck's experimental hybrid docuseries for HBO about colonialism and genocide in Africa and the Americas. “We would prefer for genocide to have begun and ended with Nazism,” muses filmmaker Raoul Peck in the voiceover that steers his four-part hybrid docuseries Exterminate All the Brutes (HBO). “This would indeed be most comforting.” But genocide was made a prerequisite for the establishment and expansion of America — a fact as obvious to some as it is unacceptable to others. Drawing on the work of historian Sven Lindqvist, from whose 1992 book (and a line from Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness) Peck takes the title of his project, the I Am Not Your Negro director argues that, though guns, germs and steel played their crucial parts in the Western colonization of Africa and the Americas, it was a 19th century idea that the extinction of “inferior” races was part of the “natural” course of history that gave Europeans ideological cover to annihilate or brutally exploit the peoples native to those continents. The West won, he asserts, because it was willing to wipe out entire civilizations.

But that summary belies the beauty, the intimacy, the creative leaps, even the whimsies in Exterminate All the Brutes, which approaches the history of European colonialism — starting roughly in the late 1400s, when Columbus set sail and Spanish anti-Semitism and Islamophobia solidified the unscientific concept of race as blood-based — with an essayistic stream of consciousness, especially in the docuseries’ first hour. Peck also employs meta-reenactments — many starring Josh Hartnett (the series’ only recognizable actor) as a kind of colonial Zelig who pops up in the American West and in Africa — to reinforce the continuity between exterminations across the globe, as well as to reinstate the shock of an individual killing, even when real-life victims number in the millions. In a similar technique, Peck often zooms out on photos of victims — say, of a Native American child who’s revealed to be surrounded by dozens of fellow Brown students forced into Christian schools (in a practice that often involved abducting children from their parents) — in an effort to memorialize both the tragedy of the one and the group.

With Exterminate All the Brutes, Peck seeks to shift our perspective, again and again — to get us to see the founding of America as inherently genocidal, to situate race relations today within a centuries-old exercise of homicidal racism and soul-destroying greed and to sit with the mind-boggling amount of suffering that European and American colonial powers inflicted. When a time-lapse graphic illustrates the 12 million captives taken from Africa to the Americas, for example, it moves slowly enough for at least an iota of that oceanful of needless torture to sink in. (“Trading human beings — what sick mind thought of this first?” asks Peck in his forceful, lyrically aphoristic prose.) In case we’ve grown inured to seeing white men kill Black and brown tribespeople — a script passed down to children in the form of playing “Cowboys and Indians” — Peck has Hartnett’s colonizer murder a group of Black men in modern-day clothes in seemingly contemporary Africa, perhaps to see if the different context makes historical genocide feel any more morally shocking, any less an inevitability.

The Salton Sea

I have lived about three hours away from the Salton Sea for like 20 years. But yet I have never been there. The closest I’ve been is Palm Springs. People tell me don’t bother wasting my time going there. It’s smelly and dirty and weird people hang out there. But it seems fascinating to me for some reason. I’ve been stuck at home for over nine months now and I need to take a short road trip. Maybe stay overnight in Palm Springs and check out the sea the next day. I also wouldn’t mind checking out Idyllwild since I’m going to be out that way.

Has anyone been to the Salton Sea? What about Idyllwild? Any info or insight would be helpful. Thank you.

Raquel Welch has vanished from social media. Could something be wrong or has she gone all Greta Garbo or Norma Desmond,

Raquel Welch seems to have disappeared from social media with no acknowledgement of her 80th birthday. Her Facebook account seems to have been deleted, no Instagram posts in over 2 years and no tweets in 18 months. Now of course she might just have got bored or fed up with all social media and chose to stop posting .

But I have a feeling , an intuition that something is wrong especially with nothing for her 80th birthday in September. Perhaps a serious health problem or vanity because she doesn't want to be seen in public when she can no longer maintain the standard of her look. I believe Lana Turner became reclusive in part for this reason. I am wondering if maybe she has become all Greta Garbo or Norma Desmond in her twilight years.?

Who'da thunk? Boris the Nazi Incel is lying that Dumb Dubya Bush is more popular than Barack Obama.

Of course he is because Boris's sanity is fading. He's not only seeking to retro-project popularity on to Donald Trump by pretending COVID neglect was Trump's only flaw, but now he's digging for a non-Trumplican to rally around in defeat, so he reaches for a less recent national disaster like Dumb Dubya.

It's not like the Republicans have anyone competent or popular to pick from. When your party is all about not caring, not being responsible and hating the government, all you're going to get is disaster-making deadbeats like George W. Bush and Donald Trump.

Boris wants us to bring back the Good Ol' Days under Bush, when terrorism increased as a direct result of Bush's actions, Bush invaded the wrong country that hated us for it at the expense of 4,000 U.S. troops and $4 trillion they still haven't paid for while cities like New Orleans just drowned when there were natural disasters. Bush was too busy sucking up to the bankers defrauding the housing industry who would plunge America into the Great Recession!

Long live Dumbya Bush, I want his star to rise again! Those were some awesome times!

Boris's proof that "Dubya's star is rising while Obama fades" is merely that Dumb Dubya Bush is selling a new book. Does a book-selling publicity tour mean more than what Americans say in scientific polls or how they've voted for 15 years?

PrEP, Poz Face and Crix Belly

I have bucked up the courage to put my toe back in the water this summer and go on some "dates" - wink, you know what I mean. 🍆🍑💦 Not my "toe" LOL.

The 1 year lockdown made me do the math and 3 decades of celibacy to avoid dying of AIDS is enough. I'm ready to live live live again!

But my friend tells me that PrEP will cause Poz Face and I don't want that! So everyone gets filler? I live on a fixed income.

Also what happens if I got HIV anyway? How long before I got Crix Belly?

So when PrEP stops working and you get AIDS that meant the drugs did't work because it's the same drug. My friend said I'll have to take 20 pills a day to live a couple years, and I already take 30. I wonder if I should really do this but life is a banquet right?

Also should I tell people I take PrEP or keep that my shameful secret? What do the lotharios prefer to know nowadays?

Actors who turned down roles that could have been big for them...

I say COULD have because just because it worked for the actor who ended up in the role doesn’t mean it would have for them.

But I can think of a few MCU roles.

Jensen Ackles wanted to be Captain America and auditioned more than once but they were set on getting the only person they wanted Chris Evans. They offered him Hawkeye but he turned it down. He seemed to really just want Caps.

Emily Blunt was originally cast as Black Widow before dropping out and them eventually casting ScarJo, who was a walking audition for the role after being rejected more than once. Emily was then offered the role of Peggy Carter in Captain America but declined it, and still to this day says she is happy with her decision to not join the MCU.

Joaquin Phoenix was in negotiations to play Doctor Strange but ended the negotiations when he decided he didn’t wanna be tied down to a long contract for a franchise like that.

Joseph Gordon Levitt auditioned for the role of Ant-Man but was turned down, but was offered the role of Star-Lord in Galaxy, but he turned that down to do the Sin City sequel instead.

Others???

White gay men and shoes

I'm circulating the memo because enough is enough:

1.) Enough boat shoes! With white socks to boot! Unless you're over sixty and very nautical, there's no excuse to be clinging on to some preppie fad from the eighties. And don't even get me started on the white socks. Everyone knows it's tan or cream colored socks with any type of brown shoe. White should only be worn with a sneaker or a shoe if you are in that grunge look. None of that applies to what I've just addressed.

2.) Flip flops NEED to go. Your feet are not that good. The world will adjust to not looking at the glory of your crusty nails and calloused heels. Most of you have never properly learned how to tan or moisterize your feet anyways. And flip flops are so declasse.

REPORT: X-Men Reboot 'The Mutants' in Development at Marvel Studios

If Marvel wants to do this right this time, the first film of the reboot should focus exclusively on the original five X-Men. The second film should be an adaptation of Giant-Size X-Men #1, properly introducing the “second genesis” of the new X-Men. They can also do a solo film for Wolverine based on and titled Weapon X. Finally, they need to do a proper adaptation of the Dark Phoenix Saga, remaining as close to the design and writing of that masterpiece as possible. In fact, I would go retro with X-Men and maintain the most iconic iterations of the characters, which were from the 1970s through the 1990s. They can then move into Jonathan Hickman’s brilliant new reboot. Of course, they can also start with Hickman’s version, adapting House of X and Powers of X, but I would prefer the aforementioned buildup.

David Muir/George Stephanopoulos catfight at ABC News

"There's only ONE star at ABC News, and that's ME baby!"

David Muir's new role at ABC News leads to drama with George Stephanopoulos and a visit from Bob Iger

Earlier this year tensions between ABC News anchors George Stephanopoulos and David Muir boiled over to the point that Stephanopoulos threatened to walk to a rival network, according to sources close to the matter.

In an unusual intervention, Disney executive chairman Bob Iger flew across the country to broker peace at ABC News.

Iger smoothed things over and gave Stephanopoulos, 60, a valuable contract extension, defusing the situation. Muir, 47, also remains under a long-term contract.

"They found a way to have two big stars and build towards the future," one of the sources said.

But not without a whole lot of drama along the way. The previously unreported spat showcases the challenges of talent management and how TV anchor roles are evolving in the streaming age.

Spokespeople for ABC News, a unit of Disney, declined to comment for this story. More than half a dozen sources spoke to CNN Business on condition of anonymity.

At issue was a title, "chief anchor," and a key network news responsibility: leading special coverage of breaking news stories and special events.

Those special reports have been helmed by Stephanopoulos for the better part of a decade. Now Muir will have that responsibility on top of his "World News Tonight" anchor role.

Stephanopoulos, the co-anchor of "GMA" on weekdays and "This Week" on Sundays, will be adding a production company and prime time specials to his portfolio. Sources said that he will create new shows for Disney-owned platforms like Hulu and National Geographic.

Now, no one at ABC News will have the title of "chief anchor."

The title was invented in 2014, and that's really where this story begins.

Diane Sawyer was stepping down from "World News," the network's flagship evening broadcast, historically the top job at ABC News.

Stephanopoulos was anchoring "GMA" and was, according to some sources, coveting the "World News" chair.

But power was shifting from the evenings to the mornings. As Bill Carter wrote for The New York Times in 2014, "Stephanopoulos is now too important a part of ABC's top-rated morning program, 'Good Morning America' — by far the biggest profit center for the news division — to be moved to the evenings."

Assuming it was "normal" to start with... will we ever see a Right/Center Republican party again, or are they headed down this far-right direction that will either destroy them (which won't happen until they start losing elections) or destroy the country, which the previous POTUS was doing just by enabling the most extreme in the country.

I am of the opinion that we need two working political parties, not one whose sole mission is to "give it to the Libs" every chance they get. The fact that the Republicans are a minority party that has the majority of statehouses and legislatures, and was able to put 3 new judges on the Supreme Court continues to boggle my mind, considering how far right they have truly gone. This Red v Blue state has destroyed what was once an incredible country, and I think the political system started to erode with Clinton/Gore and the Gingrich Congress, despite them actually working together.

It's what gave us Rove's Red v Blue strategy, which ended up working for the GOP (and I think continues to work for them). And personally, I think Congress goes GOP in 2022, though I am still holding on to the hope that the Dems (either Biden or Harris) can keep the WH in 2024.

Thoughts?

Let’s Just Replace Every Terrible Man in the Movies With Tig Notaro

Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead completed most principle photography in 2019. At that time, the character of “Peters,” described as “a cynical helicopter pilot,” was played by comedian Chris D’Elia. Since filming wrapped, the now-41-year-old D’Elia has been accused by multiple people, including minors, of sexual misconduct, and just last month he was sued for possessing child porn and exploiting a minor. Long story short, Chris D’Elia is a piece of crap and not the kind of person you want in your movie.

Hidden gems of BBC-TV drama

I just finished “The Charmer,” featuring Nigel Havers and Bernard Hepton, from the BBC in the late 80s. Really enjoyed it — it’s based on the Gorse books — and it got me wondering what other hidden gems are out there from the BBC (or ITV, etc) in the 70s-90s.

I don’t mean the ones still well known and viewed like Tinker Tailor, Brideshead Revisited, Jewel in the Crown or similar. What are your favorites?

Pelosi kills Jerry Nadler's Supreme Court packing effort

Nancy Pelosi effectively killed an upcoming Democrat proposal to expand the Supreme Court by four seats by saying Thursday she would not bring the bill to the House floor.

The bid from a group of Democratic lawmakers would change the number of justices for the first time in 160 years and wipe out the conservative majority built under Donald Trump.

'Do you support [Rep.] Jerry Nadler's bill to expand the Supreme Court by 4 seats and would you commit to bringing that bill to the floor,' a reporter asked the House Speaker at a press conference on Thursday.

'No,' she said.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, while unveiling the bill Thursday, explained Democrats are looking to reverse the conservative majority created under the last administration with the court packing bill.

'We're not packing it, we're unpacking it,' Nadler argued.

Pelosi said she backs President Joe Biden launching a commission to look at expanding the Supreme Court Justice count, rather than bringing forward the current Democrat proposal.

'I support the president's commission to study such a proposal,' Pelosi added. 'But, frankly, I'm not – right now, we're back, our members – committees are working putting together the infrastructure bill and the rest.'

DL Fave Demi Lovato Angry at Yogurt!

Demi Lovato calls out LA frozen yogurt shop for selling sugar-free options

Demi Lovato needed to take a big chill pill.

The “Dancing With the Devil” singer blasted Los Angeles-based frozen yogurt shop The Bigg Chill for carrying sugar-free varieties, saying it was “triggering” for her as a woman recovering from an eating disorder.

“Finding it extremely hard to order froyo from @thebiggchillofficial when you have to walk past tons of sugar free cookies/other diet foods before you get to the counter,” she wrote on her Instagram Story. “Do better please.”

She also added the hashtag “#dietculturevultures.”

The Bigg Chill wasn’t sweet on the critique and later defended itself on the shop’s Instagram Story — and tagged the star — writing, “We carry items for Diabetics, Celiac disease, Vegan and of course have many indulgent items as well.”

The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer, who has been candid about her battle with bulimia, also shared her direct messages with The Bigg Chill on her Story. “We are not diet vultures,” The Bigg Chill wrote to her. “We cater to all of our customers needs for the past 36 years. We are sorry you found this offensive.”

Unwilling to relent in her criticism, Lovato said her experience there was “triggering and awful.”

“You can carry things for other people while also caring for another percentage of your customers who struggle DAILY just to even step foot in your store,” Lovato continued.

"You can find a way to provide an inviting environment for all people with different needs. Including eating disorders — one of the deadliest mental illnesses only second to opios [sic] overdoses,” Lovato added, alluding to her 2018 drug overdose. “Don’t make excuses, just do better.”

Seemingly unable to handle that the Bigg Chill iced her out, Lovato continued messaging the small business with “more beneficial” marketing ideas.

“I was thinking, maybe it would help if you made it more clear that the sugar free options and vegan options are for that,” Lovato suggested. “Labeling the snacks for celiac diabetes or vegans. When it’s not super clear, the messaging gets confusing and being in LA it’s really hard to distinguish diet culture vs. health needs.

“I think more clearer messaging would be more beneficial for everyone,” she added.

Lovato’s final message credited The Bigg Chill for “catering to many different needs” but added it’s not about “excluding one demographic to cater to others.”

The Bigg Chill once again chose not to engage with Lovato’s messages.

What's the worst thing you've ever said to another person?

As a companion to the "What's the worst thing anyone has ever said to you?" thread.

This is something I'm very ashamed of and will always feel guilty about.

As I've mentioned elsewhere, my mom has early onset Alzheimer's. Early in her diagnosis, we got into a big fight about something. In a moment of anger -- I can't even remember the context now -- I said sarcastically to her, "It doesn't matter, you won't remember it anyway."

It was truly an awful thing to say.

Now she's advanced to the point that she recognizes me, but I'm not always sure she realizes I'm her son.
