Any Board Gamers Here?

No video games! Just the regular kind you have to sit down at a table an play with other humans. I used to play them a lot when I was younger but then I kind of got out of the habit. In the past couple of years I've joined several local board game Meetup groups (including one LGBT one) and it's a lot of fun. Of course now with the lockdown, we're playing more "virtual" games online, but fortunately there are a lot of sites out there (Yucata, Board Game Arena, Tabletopia, Steam, Boites a Jeux) where you can play. Is anyone else playing online? Do you have any favorite games?

Really tasteful friends: Troy House, have at it -

- allegedly designed by Inigo Jones (1573–1652). 10 reception rooms; 20 bedrooms with ensuite. Stables.

This is not a suitable topic for the decorative queens who sometimes stray into our deliberations. There is no decoration to fuss over, except perhaps the ceiling design which I love. The staircase is magnificent. The ivy has gone which is too bad; this was a house which in 1901 was the center of an estate consisting of seven productive farms - I assume they've gone too. The huntin', shootin' and fishin' rights are mentioned but I imagine are much reduced these days (if they still exist).

A warrant was quickly issued for Mayra's arrest and she was caught in Houston; police believe she fled to Texas on a bus. Gavilanez-Alectus is now in Harris County jail and will soon be extradited back to New Jersey.

Trump Sows Doubt on Voting. It Keeps Some People Up at Night.

Trump Sows Doubt on Voting. It Keeps Some People Up at Night.

A group of worst-case scenario planners — mostly Democrats, but also some anti-Trump Republicans — have been gaming out how to respond to various doomsday options for the 2020 presidential election.

By Reid J. Epstein

May 24, 2020

WASHINGTON — In October, President Trump declares a state of emergency in major cities in battleground states, like Milwaukee and Detroit, banning polling places from opening.

A week before the election, Attorney General William P. Barr announces a criminal investigation into the Democratic presidential nominee, Joseph R. Biden Jr.

After Mr. Biden wins a narrow Electoral College victory, Mr. Trump refuses to accept the results, won’t leave the White House and declines to allow the Biden transition team customary access to agencies before the Jan. 20 inauguration.

Far-fetched conspiracy theories? Not to a group of worst-case scenario planners — mostly Democrats, but some anti-Trump Republicans as well — who have been gaming out various doomsday options for the 2020 presidential election. Outraged by Mr. Trump and fearful that he might try to disrupt the campaign before, during and after Election Day, they are engaged in a process that began in the realm of science fiction but has nudged closer to reality as Mr. Trump and his administration abandon longstanding political norms.

Meghan McCain Warns Biden: Don’t Make My Father’s Sarah Palin Mistake

The hosts of The View spent Friday morning giving Joe Biden some advice as he starts his search for what he has promised will be a female running mate. Meghan McCain had just one big warning: Don’t make the same mistake her father made in 2008.

Biden has been holding virtual live stream events with prospective VP picks, which Whoopi Goldberg fretted might look like a “reality show” competition. McCain explained that she is personally not a big fan of “chemistry tests.”

“Not to make this about me, but when I was originally offered the job on this show, they wanted to test me with a bunch of the ladies and I said, ‘No, you see what I can do,’” McCain revealed. As she explained it, she again refused to do a chemistry test a few years later and they hired her anyway. “I think vice presidential picks are the exact same way.”

Meghan McCain Blames Obama for ‘Ushering in’ Trump

She continued, “My father—and I know people get very triggered when I talk about him, so just bear with me—he chose an unorthodox running mate. He chose someone he hadn’t had a lot of experience with. In fact, I believe he only met Sarah Palin twice before announcing her as his vice presidential pick.”

On his deathbed, John McCain used both his final book and an HBO documentary about his life to say that one of his “biggest regrets,” in his daughter’s words, was choosing Palin over his friend Joe Lieberman.

Because of the times we’re living in now, Meghan McCain said that he “has to go with the person who is going to lead us out of this absolute epidemic, pandemic, generational crisis, because as far as I'm concerned, it's looking like it's going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better.”

She urged Biden to pick someone that he “trusts” as much as President Obama clearly trusted him, a point that Biden himself made during his interview with Stephen Colbert the night before.

Taking one last swipe at Palin, McCain said that treating the decision like a “beauty queen contest” and picking someone “who can perform the best in front of a camera for 20 minutes, is probably completely ill-suited for this time.”

Some young frauling gave me shit at Central Park for now reason!

I was up in the north part of Central Park where there is a small man-made creek and waterfall. I wanted to take a photo of the waterfall with my phone so I waited for the woman sitting on the rock above the falls to move. After 10 minutes of waiting it was obvious she wasn’t going anywhere so I took the pic with her in it. I then immediately opened it in a photo editing and airbrushed the woman out. There was a young woman in black (wearing cat-like glasses) who was watching me the whole time. She said to me “excuse me, but it must be nice to have such power.”

“Excuse me?” I said, because I was completely confused on what she just said to me.

Then she explained, “it wasn’t enough that you felt that you could just steal a picture of that women without her consent. But now you’re LITERALLY erasing her. What power!”

I just walked away, what the fuck does someone even say in reply to something like that? Stupid cunt.

Oh, Daddy! Prince Harry's new 'father figure' is David Foster

He's been said to be feeling 'lost' in his new Stateside home, far from friends, family and his previous life, but Prince Harry has reportedly found a 'father figure' in California.

According to the Duchess of Sussex's close friend, Katharine McPhee, Harry has become close to her husband, David Foster.

'My husband has a really, really beautiful relationship with Harry,' McPhee she told the TV show Access Hollywood. 'They're like, they're so cute. They're like father and son. We just stay in touch with them. But mostly, Meghan and I knew each other from childhood, but really Harry and my husband are friends, so it's really nice.'

The Court Circular is your inside track on the latest happenings in the Royal Family, covering the biggest stories shaping the monarchy right now.

Foster of course was the man who helped arrange Harry and Meghan's Vancouver Island accommodation, after connecting them to the mysterious owner of the sprawling home where they spent Christmas, the New Year and the earlier part of this year.

McPhee also credits him with helping the royal couple find their Pacific Palisades home, saying: 'David is the resource guy. He knows all the places. He loves to help people. We just want them to end up wherever they feel safest and happiest.'

An LA power player on the music scene, Foster works as a record producer and music executive, with artists such as Christina Aguilera, Mary J Blige and Michael Bublé all produced by him. Yet he is also well-known for his five marriages - often to other well-connected Hollywood types.

From 1991 to 2005 he was married to Linda Thompson, a former model and the ex-wife of Caitlyn Jenner (then Bruce), with Foster acting as step-father to her two sons, Brody and Brandon Jenner (the half-brothers of Kendall and Kylie Jenner). He was next married to Yolanda Hadid from 2011-2017, another former model, and the mother of Gigi, Bella and Anwar Hadid, before marrying McPhee in 2018.

He had one child aged 20, Allison, who he gave up for adoption and reconnected with when she was an adult, plus three daughters with his second wife, Rebecca Dyer, named Sara, Erin and Jordan. His daughter Sara is married to former tennis star Tommy Haas.

What are Biden's best attack lines going to be in the debates?

Consider the past 4 years and the immense number of scandals. Hillary's poised stoicism and rhetorical clobbering had no effect on the pea-brained red and purple state voter. We know that's because she's a woman. Joe will still need to be as succinct with a more receptive audience and will have 4 years of material to work with. Of course this accountability dialogue will not be framed as the "Vote for me because I'm not Trump," criticism levied at Clinton.

What should his message be and how many of Trump's earlier gaffes and outrages should be recalled? I'm assuming pinning the 100k+ deaths squarely on Trump will be his prima materia, but he can't rest his argument on one thing the media talking heads will go back and forth on.

What are the top 5 or 10 things Joe should hone in at every given opportunity?

This may be her best performance. I feel she never tried this hard again after minus in a couple of films, but never lived up to this (and Gia).

What's Your Dark Core Score?

[quote] We all know people who consistently display ethically, morally, and socially questionable behavior in everyday life. Personality psychologists refer to these characteristics among a subclinical population as "dark traits." An understanding of dark traits has become increasingly popular not only in psychology, but also in criminology and behavioral economics.

How many of these do you strongly agree with?

The Dark Core Scale

1. It is hard to get ahead without cutting corners here and there.

2. I like to use clever manipulation to get my way.

3. People who get mistreated have usually done something to bring it on themselves.

4. I know that I am special because everyone keeps telling me so.

5. I honestly feel I'm just more deserving than others.

6. I'll say anything to get what I want.

7. Hurting people would be exciting.

8. I try to make sure others know about my successes.

9. It is sometimes worth a little suffering on my part to see others receive the punishment they deserve.

May 15, 1973, Connie Francis released her new hit "Should I Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree." It remained in the top 40 for three weeks. She had been taking a break from performing recently, but after her success with this new song, Miss Francis decided to perform again and was booked to star at the Westbury Music Fair in New York. On November 8, 1974, she checked into her hotel, the Howard Johnson's Lodge in Jericho, New York. That very night, Miss Francis life changed forever.

If you had your choice, would you rather be tall or short?

I'm six feet tall, but in the gay community, it seems that short guys are more favored.

They're small, compact, and less intimidating.

Tops especially look for small and petite guys, which really sucks.

As a tall guy, you're expected to be a top. I often wonder what it's like to be short/small, and how often you would get hit on by other guys.

Tyler Posey: It's time for a Teen Wolf re-boot!

Could Teen Wolf finally be hitting our screens again in the near future?

Tyler Posey, who played Scott McCall on the MTV series, has teased a possible reboot of the show, and we are so on board with this.

It's been three years since we said goodbye to Scott, Stiles, Lydia and co in the very open-ended finale and now Tyler reckons it's about time for a reboot.

He wrote on Twitter: "Hey @MTV I think it's time to bring teen wolf back for new episodes. First Jersey shore family vacation. Now Teen Wolf high school reunion. I'm ready. And 28, so it's an appropriate age."

Sounds good, eh? Well even better, some of the original cast are up for joining him too.

Colton Haynes, who played werewolf wannabe Jackson Whittemore, tweeted "I'm in!" and Cody Christian, who played one of Scott's enemies (turned frenemy), Theo Raeken, added: "I'm. So. Down".

Khylin Rhambo, who played Mason, added: "I agree with all these things. Count me tf in."

Orney Adams, who played the lacrosse coach, took things a little further with his unique humour: "Wait a minute. What the hell have I been shooting for the past six months @MTV? Was this not an official reboot? I was wondering why in all my scenes I was naked on a lacrosse field. Alone."

Well, we're absolutely ready for a reunion to find out what happened to the pack. Have Stiles and Lydia got married and had babies yet? Is Derek still a grumpy wolfy?

While the final season was still filming, series creator, Jeff Davis, was already planning a reboot, but it never materialised at the time, so maybe now's the right time.

Come on, MTV!

Are you as geographically ignorant as I am?

I’ve never taken a geography class, and I am pretty dumb in this category.

I was shocked to find out a few years ago that the farthest-west point on the South American continent aligns with...Florida! I always thought for some reason that the east and west coasts of the Americas are roughly stacked.

Am I the only one who thought this?

Also, years ago I heard Whoopi Goldberg say to Joy Behar (after Behar complained about her ‘kinky’ hair) that “Sicily is just one little rowboat ride away from Africa. I knew it was close-ish, being in the Mediterranean, but Whoopi was basically correct.

Costars hate each other all the time, that's not new. But they can usually pull it together long enough to pretend in front of the cameras. Any examples of costars who weren't professional or talented enough to disguise their contempt for their costar?

I imagine this happens on soaps a lot where they aren't the best actors and they don't have time to screw around, they have to get thru their scenes on schedule. And not exactly the same thing but co-hosts/anchors seem to hate each other a lot too and since they aren't actors they aren't as good at hiding it.

Thelma Ritter

Every so often there comes along a gem of an actor who steals scenes just by showing up. And that person was Thelma Ritter. She was a no-nonsense, tough talking and yet very hilarious character actress.

Her first role was an aggravated mother in the original version of "Miracle On 34th Street." She went on to work with Gwen Verdon, Bette Davis, Alfred Hitchcock, Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly, Doris Day and Rock Hudson, Marilyn Monroe, Debbie Reynolds and so many others.

Are there any performers today like Thelma that just light up the screen when they show up? I put Thelma in the category of yester-year actors like Vivian Vance, Nancy Walker and others who may have been "supporting" but made their indelible mark.

Tiffani Thiessen was engaged to Richard Ruccolo

Tiffani Thiessen and Richard Ruccolo, who played lovers on "Two Guys and a Girl" last year, are planning on being co-stars on a more permanent basis in real life.

Ruccolo proposed to his girlfriend of about one year, the actors' publicist, Elizabeth Much, told Zap2it.com. No details were available on the wedding date or how Ruccolo popped the question.

The marriage will be the first for both actors, who have been living together in the Hollywood Hills for several months, according to media reports.

Rumors have romantically linked Thiessen, who dropped the middle name "Amber" last year, to former co-stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar, whom she starred with on "Saved by the Bell," and Brian Austin Green, from "Beverly Hills, 90210." Thiessen also dated actor David Strickland shortly before he hung himself in a Las Vegas motel room.

Married a Thai Man and Thinking of Retiring in Thailand

We're both in our 50s. I'm within 10 years of retirement. He has a green card but wants to go for US Citizenship. Won't affect his Thai citizenship.

I speak a bit of Thai and by 66, I will be rather good at it. Healthcare (Thailand has some outstanding healthcare) but it's like pre-ACA, lots of exclusions, and pre-existing conditions for foreigners. After 70 it's almost impossible to get health insurance (as of now).

They don't recognize gay marriage. So in Thailand, we're not married but under U.S. law we are (for the moment at least).

Taxes. Still obligated to pay taxes, though in retirement we won't come close to 103,000.

I'll be an immigrant. It doesn't bother me. Can't own land but can own the building on the land. So he would own the land and we would build and own the house.

Not even considering Bangkok but maybe north. Been there 3 times. Don't like the south, too hot. Don't like the middle, too boring. Don't like Bangkok, way to fucking crowded.

It would be near his family, so as we age, we'll have lots of family to help.

University of California Will Stop Using SAT, ACT, Claiming it is biased against minorities

The University of California board of regents voted Thursday to stop using the SAT and ACT college admissions exams, reshaping college admissions in one of the largest and most prestigious university systems in the country and dealing a significant blow to the multibillion-dollar college admission testing industry.

The unanimous 23-to-0 vote ratified a proposal put forward last month by UC President Janet Napolitano to phase out the exams over the next five years until the sprawling UC system can develop its own test.

The battle against standardized tests has raged for years because minority students score, on average, lower than their white classmates. Advocates argue that the exams are an unfair admission barrier to those students because they often cannot pay for pricey test preparation.

“The test is a proxy for privilege,” said Regent Cecilia Estolano. “It’s time, it has been studied to death.” More than 1,000 colleges and universities have gone “test optional,” with the pace of schools dropping the exam accelerating in recent years in an attempt to level the admissions playing field.

The University of California received more than 176,000 freshmen applications last year—including around 116,000 from in-state students—and the system’s decision to abandon the exams opens the door for other schools to follow suit, partly to ensure they don’t alienate California applicants.

Ms. Napolitano’s proposal allows four years for the UC system to develop a new exam. If it fails to create or adopt one, then it likely would cease to use any exam, said Robert Schaeffer, public education director of the National Center for Fair and Open Testing, known as FairTest, which has fought against standardized testing for 30 years. Mr. Schaeffer said he doesn’t believe a new exam will be implemented.

“It appears very unlikely that they will be able to design an instrument that is more accurate and fairer than relying on applicants’ high school records,” Mr. Schaeffer said. “And, if a new test somehow meets those goals promoters would face massive adoption barriers, including persuading UC and the rest of the admissions world that a third test is truly needed or useful.”

The road to Thursday’s vote has been full of twists and turns. Ms. Napolitano began the review of the use of the SAT in 2018, that prompted a faculty committee began a review of the use of the exam. In February it recommended that the system continue to use the exams, arguing that applicants’ scores on the SAT and ACT still serve as better predictors of first-year performance than high school grades.

However, the task force encouraged the university system to expand the criteria on which it bases admissions decisions, and suggested possibly creating an alternative admissions test.

In December, students and community groups sued the University of California, alleging its requirement that applicants submit ACT or SAT scores discriminates against racial and ethnic minorities and low-income applicants. Last month, the UC system voted to suspend the use of the tests for one year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Adolf Hitler 's Alligator is Dead to Me.

An alligator rumored to have once belonged to Adolf Hitler has died at quite a remarkably old age.

The reptile -- who goes by Saturn -- recently passed away in the care of the Moscow Zoo, which he called home since the 1940s after he was discovered by British soldiers and gifted to the facility shortly thereafter ... once Germany suffered defeat in WWII, of course.

Saturn is actually said to have survived a bombing at the Berlin Zoo back in 1943 -- where he had been living after being shipped there from America in the mid-'30s -- and somehow lived among the ruins until he was found again in 1946. After that, Russia was his new home.

For some reason ... rumors swirled in Moscow that the alligator might've once been part of Hitler's personal collection of exotic animals. The Moscow Zoo says it became an urban legend but doesn't elaborate on why something like that might've even been thought.I

Whatevs ... the scaly creature lived out the rest of its days in Moscow's care, and apparently -- he was a very good, but also cantankerous boy. Of the animal, the Zoo writes ... "He was fussy about food and loved being massaged with a brush. If he didn’t like something, he would gnaw on the concrete decorations." He had a diet of rabbits, rats and fish.

Now, the Zoo doesn't confirm whether the Hitler story is true or not -- the theory could never be proven -- but they do defend Saturn's rep by saying ... regardless of who he might've belonged to, an animal's an animal, and shouldn't be judged by any human action.

The alligator was 84.

RIP?

Ben Shapiro: An 81-Year-Old Dying of COVID-19 is Not the Same as a 30-Year-Old Dying of It — WATCH

Daily Wire editor Ben Shapiro suggested that a 30-year-old life was worth more than an 80-year-old life in a discussion with Dave Rubin on Wednesday about when the coronavirus lockdowns should be rolled back.

Said Shapiro: “Nobody just wants to say the obvious truth, which is we’re all making actuarial deductions about what are the costs in terms of how many human lives, how many years of life, because that is an actual issue in actuarial tables. If somebody who is 81, dies of Covid-19 that is not the same thing as somebody who is 30 dying of Covid-19. … If grandma dies in a nursing home at age 81, and that’s tragic and that’s terrible, also the life expectancy in the United States is 80. So, that is not the same thing. In moral terms, you want to save every life you can. At the same time, to pretend that it is of the same, it is the same calculation, the age of the person, no public policy acts like that, not a single public policy in America acts like that.”

Writes Mediaite: “Shapiro’s notable sang froid about elderly people being struck down by the coronavirus stands in stark contrast to his tone several years ago, when wrote an anti-Obamacare piece for the far right website, Breitbart, that was not-so-subtly titled ‘The Death Panels Are Coming.’ In that piece, Shapiro railed against the prospect of the Affordable Care Act resulting in ‘rationing of care’ and listed several examples of federal healthcare guidelines that suggested curtailing preventative tests like mammographies, colonoscopies, and PSA screening for adults in their seventies and eighties as a cost-saving measure.”

He also said he loves how few males get into nursing because the competition is low and if you’re a man you are automatically given a job because once they see it’s a male they get excited and hand you the job ASAP. He was being honest. (Like we DIDNT know sexism is a plague in this Country).

In the early afternoon, police said suspect Peter Manfredonia, 23, was driving a stolen black Volkswagen Jetta with a sticker paying tribute to victims of the Sandy Hook massacre in his hometown of Newtown. Hours later they said that car had been found empty near the border of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Police have been looking for Manfredonia since Friday when he was seen leaving the scene of a brutal assault on two older men.

Cynthia DeMers, whose husband Theodore was killed, told the Hartford Courant that Manfredonia had been walking down their road in Willington and needed a ride to his motorcycle.

“It could have been anybody who offered him a ride,” she told the newspaper. “It could have been any of my neighbors’ husbands. It just happened to be mine.”

Minutes after her husband and neighbor left with the suspect, her husband and the other man were found. DeMers could not be revived, and police said the second victim’s injuries were extremely serious. They did not describe the injuries.

It’s believed that on Saturday night, Manfredonia broke into a house in Willington, swiped long guns and a pistol and a car—which was later found abandoned after a crash near Osbornedale State Park in Derby.

SWAT teams and K-9 units swarmed the park, as Derby police warned on Facebook: “Residents are asked to remain vigilant as this suspect is considered armed and highly dangerous.”

Hours later, police said they believed Manfredonia had escaped the area. Even more chillingly, they said the investigation had determined that his most recent stop was a Derby home where he allegedly killed an acquaintance, 23-year-old Nicholas J. Eisele, and stole the getaway Jetta.

Manfredonia is 6-foot-3, 240 pounds, and wearing a gray T-shirt, gray sweatpants. He played football for Newtown High School and his Facebook page—which has not been updated since last year—shows he has raised money for Sandy Hook Promise, a non-profit that fights gun violence.

UConn confirmed Manfredonia is enrolled in its School of Engineering/School of Business program but said he was not living on campus.

Eldergays, what are your favorite FEMALE rap songs?

Okay, not just Eldergays, but anyone. I have to admit, I don't listen to a ton of hip hop. I love Kendrick Lamar, but so does everyone else. Two rappers I've always loved are Missy Elliott and Azealia Banks. With the latter I put her personal life and her problematic behavior aside and just focus on the music. I think the fact that the both of them are legit singers gives their music -- even when they're just rapping and not singing -- much more musicality and more interesting rhythms than a lot of male rappers. But outside of Missy, Azealia, Salt N Pepa and a couple of big singles from Cardi B and Nikki Minaj, I don't know any other female rap songs.

So, let's share our favorite female rap songs.

Hightown on Starz

This series just started on Starz. Takes place in Provincetown. A lot of the outdoor scenes were filmed there. Lot of familiar sites. They also did filming on Long Island so it’s not 100% Ptown or Cape Cod. But if you’ve never been there it does give you a feel of the place. I’m not into drugs so I’m not familiar with that part of the culture but I’m sure it’s there. Also the series has a lesbian slant.

The info says it was filmed in spring of last year. Picture the streets with three or four times the people and you’ll know what summertime is like.

Some Thoughts on Isolation

Some thoughts on the last eight (8) plus weeks of Isolation & Social Distancing:

I hope they give us two weeks notice before sending us back out into the real world. I think we'll all need the time to become ourselves again. And by "ourselves" I mean lose 10 pounds, cut our hair, and get used to not drinking at 9:00 a.m.

New monthly budget: Gas $0, Entertainment $0, Clothes $0, Groceries $2,799. Breaking News: Wearing a mask inside your home is now highly recommended. Not so much to stop COVID-19, but to stop eating.

When this quarantine is over, let's not tell some people.

I stepped on my scale this morning. It said: "Please practice social distancing. Only one person at a time on the scale."

Not to brag, but I haven't been late to anything in over 8 weeks.

They may open things up next month -- I'm staying in until July to see what happens to you all first.

Day 56: The garbage man placed an AA flyer on my recycling bin.

Appropriate analogy: "The curve is flattening, so we can start lifting restrictions now. Or could it be... "The parachute has slowed our rate of descent, so we can take it off now."

People keep asking: "Is coronavirus REALLY all that serious?" Listen y'all, the churches and casinos are closed. When heaven and hell agree on the same thing, it's probably pretty serious.

Never in a million years could I have imagined I would go up to a bank teller wearing a mask and ask for money.

Putting a drink in each room of my house today and calling it a pub crawl.

Okay, so the schools are closed. Do we drop the kids off at the teacher's house?

For the second part of this quarantine do we have to stay with the same family or will they relocate us? Asking for myself....

Coronavirus has turned us all into dogs. We wander around the house looking for food. We get told "No!" if we get too close to strangers. We get really excited about going for walks and car rides.

I was in a long line at 7:45 am today at the grocery store that opened at 8:00 for seniors only. A young man came from the parking lot and tried to cut in at the front of the line, but an old lady beat him back into the parking lot with her cane. He returned and tried to cut in again, but an old man punched him in the gut, then kicked him to the ground and rolled him away. As he approached the line for the 3rd time he said, "If you people don't let me unlock the door, none of you will ever get in to shop."

Gay Porn Star Alam Wernik On Cover Of Attitude Magazine

Alam Wernik on finding sexual and financial freedom through OnlyFans

A break-out social media star from the adult entertainment world, Alam Wernik enjoys a colossal following of over a million on Instagram and 200,000 on Twitter.

After establishing himself as one of the world's most in-demand porn performers over the last couple of years, the Brazilian is following the path of many adult stars by capitalising on his newfound fame on OnlyFans, where fans can subscribe for the personal pleasure of viewing his sexual exploits.

The advent of OnlyFans has revolutionised the sex industry in recent years, as both professional and amateur content creators throw off the shackles of traditional porn contracts and turn to a platform that provdes them ultimate control over their sexual expression and, importantly, the money earned through their labour.

As Alam poses for an exclusive lockdown shoot in his New York apartment for Attitude's Sex and Sexuality issue - out now to download and to order globally - the former medical student reveals how he's relishing the control he's been afforded both sexually and financially since turning to OnlyFans.

"The porn industry was a beautiful experience. I used to create homemade videos, but the porn industry was a completely enjoyable, but different, experience", he says.

"OnlyFans followers have given me the support to build and create other projects in my life.

"It’s such an amazing thing to know that people follow you for you who you are, and I am grateful for that. All the fans gave me this amazing opportunity to share my content."

Alam, who quit his medical studies before moving to the US, explains that OnlyFans offers the chance to establish a more intimate connection between performer and

"There’s a lot of factors that I take into consideration [when creating OnlyFans content]" he says.

"But it’s just about being yourself and sharing your lifestyle. It’s really important for people to know who you are when having sex on camera!"

He adds: "With OnlyFans, the social media doors opened, giving me an opportunity to show what I do in my day-to-day life, such as fitness and travel.

"I like to show my sexuality with no fear or judgement. I like the feeling of giving and receiving emotions like it is the last time. Because it could well be, right?"

While OnlyFans has seen an explosion in amateur performers also begin to capitalise on their nudes, like any venture establishing a relationship between sex and money, stigma remains.

"I do see some negative messages, but I feel people don’t know who I am and how I live my life [get] to judge me", Alam reflects.

"I don’t get mad at all. Maybe they want to be more like me and enjoy their body. I have people that I follow that I wish I was more like, and what I do is try to learn from them, rather than bad-mouth them or make them feel bad about themselves.

He adds: "Love, love, love..."

Back to School Tips

Hello DataLounge Friends.

This week I finalized my enrollment in a Master’s Degree hybrid program. I had been applying for jobs to use my teaching certification, but as a diabetic I decided I wasn’t comfortable going back to the school setting during the current crisis.

I have some mixed feelings, because... 1.) I am going to be a Buckeye! My husband’s parents, all of his brothers, and their wives have at least one degree from Ohio State, so it’ll be cool to fit in, but do l have to be an obnoxious sports fan now?! 2.) I love learning, I am getting into a great program with the strong possibility of a pretty great assistantship, but I’m also nervous to adjust to the demands of going to to school.

My question is...for those of your who have gone BACK to school after a break, what’s your best advice? I have been out for six years. Five of those I was on “the other side of the desk” so I’m not totally out of the groove, but I want to be in a strong position.

I hope everyone is staying safe.

The Guardian: Andrew Cuomo is to blame for New York's coronavirus catastrophe

Andrew Cuomo may be the most popular politician in the country. His approval ratings have hit all-time highs thanks to his Covid-19 response. Some Democrats have discussed him as a possible replacement for Joe Biden, due to Biden’s perceived weakness as a nominee. And there have even been some unfortunate tributes to Cuomo’s alleged sex appeal.

All of which is bizarre, because Cuomo should be one of the most loathed officials in America right now. ProPublica recently released a report outlining catastrophic missteps by Cuomo and the New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio, which probably resulted in many thousands of needless coronavirus cases. ProPublica offers some appalling numbers contrasting what happened in New York with the outbreak in California. By mid-May, New York City alone had almost 20,000 deaths, while in San Francisco there had been only 35, and New York state as a whole suffered 10 times as many deaths as California.

Federal failures played a role, of course, but this tragedy was absolutely due, in part, to decisions by the governor. Cuomo initially “reacted to De Blasio’s idea for closing down New York City with derision”, saying it “was dangerous” and “served only to scare people”. He said the “seasonal flu was a graver worry”. A spokesperson for Cuomo “refused to say if the governor had ever read the state’s pandemic plan”.

Later, Cuomo would blame the press, including the New York Times for failing to say “Be careful, there’s a virus in China that may be in the United States?” even though the Times wrote nearly 500 stories on the virus before the state acted. Experts told ProPublica that “had New York imposed its extreme social distancing measures a week or two earlier, the death toll might have been cut by half or more”.

But delay was not the only screw-up. Elderly prisoners have died of coronavirus because New York has failed to act on their medical parole requests. As Business Insider documented:

“Testing was slow. Nonprofit social-service agencies that serve the most vulnerable couldn’t get answers either. And medical experts like the former CDC director Tom Frieden said ‘so many deaths could have been prevented’ had New York issued its stay-at-home order just ‘days earlier’ than it did. On March 19, when New York’s schools had already been closed, Cuomo said ‘in many ways, the fear is more dangerous than the virus.’”

The governor has failed to take responsibility for the obvious failures, consistently blaming others and at one point even saying “governors don’t do pandemics”. (Actually, some governors just don’t read their state’s pandemic plans.) But much of the press has ignored this, focusing instead on Cuomo’s aesthetic presentation: his dramatic statements about “taking responsibility” (even when he obviously hasn’t), and his invisible good looks.

For too long, Democrats have measured their politicians by “whether they are better than Republicans”. This sets the bar very low indeed, and means that Democrats end up settling for incompetent and amoral leaders who betray progressive values.

Found Out My Boyfriend Is Watching Straight Porn

I'm actually really upset and really worried. It cannot be a good sign, he must be at least bisexual right? Why and how would a gay man be turned on by straight porn? It just doesn't make sense. I tried to watch it once and it was gross.

I was using his computer, totally innocently, I wasn't snooping. I've seen him use his passcode over his shoulder a 100 times so just logged on looking for a document and found the folder, 100s of pictures and videos of all types of straight porn. Women solo, with other girls, with guys and groups, it was gross. I'm just fucking so pissed and upset and confused.

I bet he is cheating on me with girls, I just know it, some of them look like them looked pretty amateur, like from hook up sites. I thought he was gay if I knew he was bi I would never have dated, now I'm with him for the best part of two years and my heart is in it, and it is about to be broken.

I think it is best if I end it and just. I don't know, I'm heartbroken.

Useless kitchen appliances

A friend and I were reminiscing about about the '70s and S&H green stamps the other day. My mother absolutely had to have an electric can opener, but didn't want to shell out for it. She filled out her booklets and finally got the coveted can opener.

It was novel and kind of useful for about two weeks. Attaching the can, making sure it didn't fall off, and then wiping up splashed contents from the counter and machine was a pain. She reverted back to a manual one.

I'm actually somewhat surprised they still make them. I can understand people with arthritis need them. But jeez there are so many on the market at a wide range of prices. What's so bad about manual ones?

NJ guido coughs on Wegman's worker, gets charged w/felonies

New Jersey man was charged with making a terroristic threat after he intentionally coughed near a supermarket employee and told her he had the coronavirus, the authorities said on the same day that the Justice Department warned of similar threats to spread the virus.

The man, George Falcone, 50, of Freehold, N.J., was shopping for groceries at a Wegmans store in Manalapan, N.J., on Sunday evening when a worker asked him to move away from her and a food display because he was too close, the state attorney general, Gurbir S. Grewal, said on Tuesday.

The authorities said that Mr. Falcone leaned in close to the worker to cough and allegedly laughed, telling her that he was infected with the virus. Mr. Falcone later told two other store employees that they were lucky to have jobs, officials said.

Mr. Falcone was charged with making a terroristic threat in the third degree and fourth-degree of obstructing administration of law, Mr. Grewal said. Both charges are considered felonies in New Jersey.

My ingrate sister has ceased all contact with our elderly mother

Because she doesn't agree with the way Mother handled her "molestation" over 30 years ago.

Quite frankly, I think Mother handled it expertly. She simply had our uncle go to the neighbor's house, tell him we knew what he had done, that it was inappropriate, and that he was not allowed in our home again. No scene was created, but the point was put across.

My sister feels (who, Mother points out, was always running around half-dressed, which probably enticed the young man) that Mother should've gone to the police and pressed charges. Mother isn't the type to do that.

After years of listening to my sister whine about this, Mother finally told her what's what. And now my sister isn't speaking to her, or to me, since I told her I thought she was acting like a spoiled brat and needs to get over it. Mother is 75 years old and in poor health. I can't believe she wants to put her through this nonsense in her last years.

I mean, what kind of child cuts off her elderly parent, no matter the reason?

Deathtrap

I watched this movie again last night and after Robert Osborn's quote from Michael Caine I headed over to IMDB to read the trivia. What I found was interesting and sadly indicative of the times:

[quote]According to separate interviews with Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve, they had hesitations regarding the filming of the infamous "kissing" scene. Once they decided to go through with it they both consumed large amounts of alcohol in order to keep themselves calm and drunk enough that they'd do anything anyone asked them to do. Caine reportedly later regretted the scene and vowed to never film another homosexual sequence. To this day he never has.

[quote]Christopher Reeve once said of the gay love scene with Michael Caine in this movie: "We kiss on the mouth. We handle it straight on. But I hope that audiences will not over-focus on the homosexual aspects of a thriller."

[quote]Some mild controversy erupted with the on-screen gay kiss between straight actors Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve. This scene did not appear in the Ira Levin source play of the same name. According to the book 'The Celluloid Closet ' by Vito Russo, Christopher Reeve said that this scene was booed by preview audiences in Denver, Colorado, USA. Moreover, apparently a 'Time' magazine expose revealed the gay kiss story element plot twist which cost the movie an estimated US $10 million in box-office receipts.

Today we have straight actors desperate for gay roles yet doing everything they can to make sure people know they are not at all gay, (I'm looking at you Tom Hardy.)

Horace Grant lays into 'snitch' Michael Jordan over 'so-called' documentary: 'Let's settle this like men'

“The Last Dance” was largely well-received as an entertaining, welcome trip down sports memory lane at a much-needed time.

But it had its fair share of critics pointing to Michael Jordan’s heavy hand in shaping how he was portrayed — that it wasn’t a shining beacon of balanced documentary filmmaking.

Count Horace Grant in the latter camp. Jordan’s teammate on three NBA championships lit into him in a radio interview Tuesday, calling him a “snitch,” accusing him of lying and challenging him to “settle this like men.”

Grant’s primary point of contention appears to be Jordan blaming him for leaking locker-room information to author Sam Smith for his 1992 exposé “The Jordan Rules.”

But his beef doesn’t stop there. Grant took issue with the documentary’s portrayal of Scottie Pippen, Jordan’s treatment of him personally and his bullying of teammates. He laid it all out in an interview with Kap and Co. on ESPN 1000 in Chicago.

‘We can settle it another way’

"Lie, lie, lie,” Grant said, per an ESPN transcript. “If MJ had a grudge with me, let’s settle this like men. Let’s talk about it. Or we can settle it another way. But yet and still, he goes out and puts this lie out that I was the source behind [the book].

“Sam and I have always been great friends. We’re still great friends. But the sanctity of that locker room, I would never put anything personal out there.”

Grant continued that Jordan used “The Last Dance” to air out grievances while questioning the fairness of the “so-called documentary.”

“It’s only a grudge, man,” Grant said. “I’m telling you, it was only a grudge. And I think he proved that during this so-called documentary. When if you say something about him, he’s going to cut you off, he’s going to try to destroy your character.”

Grant said Jordan was the real “snitch,” chastising him for his statements early in the documentary pointing to cocaine use among Bulls players when he was a rookie.

“And my point is, he said that I was the snitch, but yet and still after 35 years he brings up his rookie year going into one of his teammate’s rooms and seeing coke and weed and women,” Grant said.

“My point is: Why the hell did he want to bring that up? What’s that got to do with anything? I mean, if you want to call somebody a snitch, that’s a damn snitch right there.”

Grant also took issue with how “The Last Dance” portrayed Pippen. The documentary went heavy into examining Pippen’s contract conflict with the Bulls in 1997, with Jordan calling Pippen “selfish” for his negotiation tactics that saw him delay a medical procedure.

The documentary also featured Pippen’s refusal to enter the final seconds of a playoff game against the New York Knicks when Phil Jackson drew up a shot for Toni Kukoc instead of him. That incident happened while Jordan was playing baseball. Grant said that the players who were on the team at the time made peace with Pippen and questioned why Jordan even brought it up.

“MJ wasn’t even on the team,” Grant said. “Why was that in there? ... We go on to take the Knicks to seven games. It was over. Why bring that up? That’s my question to everybody out there who’s listening.”

Grant also criticized Jordan’s treatment of teammates. He said he never backed down to Jordan’s tactics but believes that Jordan’s behavior in the locker room and on the practice court was out of line. Jordan’s repeated berating of Scott Burrell was featured heavily in “The Last Dance.”

“He felt that he could dominate me, but that was sadly mistaken,” Grant said. “Because whenever he went at me, I went at him right back. But in terms of Will Perdue, Steve Kerr and the young man, Scott Burrell, that was heartbreaking.”

Jordan and Grant may have shared one of the greatest runs in sports history together. But Grant clearly left with some scars that were reopened by watching “The Last Dance” along with the rest of us.

And 27 years after last playing with Jordan, Grant sounds ready to fight.

David Morris, porn actor, 1970s-1990s

Anybody remember him?

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

Barely any info online about him.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Know anything about him?

Sylvester Stallone

Does he have a substantial appeal to gay men? I've always thought he was extremely attractive, although it seems like his looks are rarely commented on. I grew up watching him the "Rocky" movies, and later as a pubescent teenager came to realize how hot he was. I've always found his "sad puppy" eyes weirdly sexy. I remember as a teenager finding video clips online of the softcore porno he did before he was famous—he had some nice low-hangers and a decent-sized dick from what I recall. The steroids and intense weight training over the years have unfortunately taken a toll on his body, although he still looks good for his age.

Macaulay Culkin talks MJ, drugs

“I’m gonna begin with the line—it’s not a line, it’s the truth: He never did anything to me. I never saw him do anything. And especially at this flash point in time, I’d have no reason to hold anything back. The guy has passed on. If anything—I’m not gonna say it would be stylish or anything like that, but right now is a good time to speak up. And if I had something to speak up about, I would totally do it. But no, I never saw anything; he never did anything.

Jackson was often the schoolmate he never had. Jackson got in touch with Mack after Home Alone, and suddenly they were hanging out. His parents neither encouraged nor discouraged the friendship. The way Mack sees it, Michael had a similar childhood, which is to say that he didn’t really have one, because his father was forcing fame upon him. So, at twenty-two years older than Mack, living in a place called Neverland, he felt the same age, in a way.

Mack and Jackson used to prank-call people. Jackson used to do these voices, real nerdy—“Hello, I’d like to buy a refrigerator. How big are your refrigerators?” And Mack would laugh and laugh.

The last time Mack saw him was in the men’s room at the Santa Barbara County Superior Courthouse in 2005. Mack was twenty-four. Michael was forty-six. Mack was testifying in Jackson’s defense in People v. Michael Jackson, in which the singer was charged with intoxicating and molesting a thirteen-year-old boy who had cancer. He was eventually acquitted.

There was a short recess during Mack’s testimony. Mack took a leak, and Michael came in. Jackson said, “We better not talk. I don’t want to influence your testimony.” They laughed a little at this. Michael Jackson, who had been more famous perhaps even than Macaulay Culkin when he was eight, ten, eleven years old, looked whipped. Exhausted. Drained. They hugged.

Investment Advisor vs Attorney

Hello all, could I please get some advice?

I graduated from a local college back in May 2019 with a BBA in marketing with a 3.5 GPA . I currently work as a financial/investment advisor in a city of about 100,000 in ETX. I have been fortunate to work at a laid back and flexible company that is paying for all of my licenses. My boss is 63 and wants to retire in 5-7 years. In my year as an advisor, I have made wonderful connections and joined the Symphony Board. I could eventually take over.

However, I have always wanted to be a lawyer since I was a kid. I took the LSAT last year and scored a 145 after a few weeks of studying. With my GPA and LSAT, I could get into some lower tier schools, (Loyola- NOLA or St Mary's) however, I have a lot of connections in my small town and would not mind coming back to practice law. I do like the idea of going to New Orleans though.

So, my question is: what would you do if you were in my situation? Would you give up your dreams to end up running your own independent brokerage firm?

You guys all talk about being smart and well educated, so looking for some advice.

Gay dads adopt teenage son over Zoom

After he was shuffled from foster home to foster home following his mum’s death.

Not even a global viral pandemic or a house fire could stop these gay dads from becoming new parents as they adopted a 17-year-old who spent five years in the foster care system after his mother passed away.

Chad and Paul Beanblossom of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, adopted their son Michael, who they had fostered since 2019, over a Zoom call.

As court proceedings juddered to a sudden halt amid the coronavirus pandemic, 80 people – from friends to family to adoption experts – all joined the Beanblossoms on Zoom to witness the moving moment the adoption was formalised.

“The judge mentioned it was the largest Zoom adoption she had done to date,” Chad told Good Morning America on Tuesday (May 18).

The Beanblossoms have been married for five years, have three biological children and are also grandparents. They’ve fostered a few children before meeting Michael, who entered the system after his mother passed away, and now can’t imagine life without him.

Beaning with pride, the parents told GMA how they’d taken in Michael after he had bounced across nine different foster homes over a span of five years.

“When Mike came to us, he was labelled a higher risk because he had ran [away] before,” Chad explained.

“But we’ve never saw that kid. He just kind of came in and took over our hearts.

He’s taught us just as much, if not more, than we have him. Our whole world revolves around Michael. “We wanted the same thing that he did,” Chad said, speaking of how Michael himself requested he be formally adopted by the Beanblossoms. “It’s really hard to imagine our life without him.”

Allyson Sayne, a family services worker at the Tennessee Department of Children Services, also gave some background showing just how momentous the adoption process has been for the family.

“Paul and Chad Beanblossom have been great at advocating for Michael and giving him opportunities that he may have not gotten otherwise,” Sayne told the talk show.

“This family had to undergo a tragedy of a house fire a month before Michael’s adoption, but they focused on the fact that they had each other and didn’t let it affect Michael’s adoption.”

And with that, our faith in humanity has been renewed for at least another season.

The Joel Steinberg/Hedda Nussbaum Affair

The recent story about the surgeon and his wife in CA, accused of raping hundreds of women (potentially), reminded me of the Joel Steinberg/Hedda Nussbaum affair of the late 1980s.

I was too young to remember when the story broke, but I've read about it in the years since, and something about it never sat right with me. I always felt she shared at least some responsibility. Joel and Hedda had a consensual, BDSM-type relationship initially, didn't they?

I'm almost 40 and have never been in a relationship (I've had sex...like, serious slut levels of sex).

That said, I've always been fascinated by gay men that have been in relationships because it's one thing in life I've never been able to do (like everything else, luck and oneself play a role). Curious about the following:

-How many relationships have you had? -How long did each last? -Why break up? -What was it about the person that made you decide "This person - with all their complexities - is better than being alone"? (This is what I particularly am fascinated by, as I cannot imagine someone ever deeming me better than being single)

Judy Garland

What an extraordinary woman.

She died before I was born, but having had the chance to watch Judy, it kind of piqued my curiosity about her. So I ended up watching the Showtime documentary "Sid and Judy," and started reading about her, too.

Judy was a homely, chubby, "flyover," with a domineering stage mom, and a bisexual father.

I'm guessing that she was probably molested (or more) by Louis B. Mayer, as well.

Fed a steady diet of amphetamines and "Bennies," she still managed to (mostly) function in Hollywood.

But most of all, her extraordinary talent made her a living legend. And she still managed to perform through the fog of alcohol and pills.

She seemed to be a very complicated woman, and her rage and frustration really manifested itself, towards the end of her life. She finally got sick and tired of everyone trying to control her.

Zellwegger's performance was good, yet it seemed to be more of an imitation of Judy, rather than capturing her essence. The real Judy had so many sides to her. Strong, funny, compassionate and talented, yet moody, vulnerable and depressed. Just watching her interviews, you could see such a range of emotions.

Her story is one for the ages.

What personal metric, if any, will you need to see happen first -- short of a vaccine -- to make you feel comfortable with the idea of actively seeking sexual encounters again? And once you've reactivated your Grindr account, will you require certain concessions (e.g., masks, gloves) from potential partners or just go back to the usual (fuck 'n' go) and hope for the best?

The 20 Most Extreme Cases Of ‘The Book Was Better Than The Movie’

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2” rolls into theaters this weekend, and if there’s one thing I’m not looking forward to it’s the inevitable “I liked the movie, but it wasn’t as good as the book” I’ll hear after the film.

You know how the traits in other people that make you the maddest are usually the ones that remind you about a part of yourself you don’t like? The “I liked the movie, but it wasn’t as good as the book” shtick is that for me. If I have a relationship with a book and it’s poorly done on the big screen, on some level, I’m galled. But on the other hand, not every movie can be “Watchmen,” and by now, I should be able to accept the nuance of adaptation, being an adult and all. On the whole, I’d argue that haggling over which is better, the book or the movie, is mostly pointless.

The operative word being “mostly.” Because there are extreme cases where book-lover rage is justifiable. Which cases? I pulled the Metacritic critic ratings of the top 500 movies on IMDb tagged with the “based on novel” keyword.1 I then2 found the average user rating of the source novel for each film on Goodreads, a book rating and review site.3 In the end, there was complete data for 382 films and source novels.

On weekend dedicated to war dead, Trump tweets insults, promotes baseless claims and plays golf

As the death toll in the novel coronavirus pandemic neared 100,000 Americans this Memorial Day weekend, President Trump derided and insulted perceived enemies and promoted a baseless conspiracy theory, in between rounds of golf.

In a flurry of tweets and retweets Saturday and Sunday, Trump mocked former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams’s weight, ridiculed the looks of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and called former Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton a “skank.” He revived long-debunked speculation that a television host with whom Trump has feuded may have killed a woman and asserted without evidence that mail-in voting routinely produces ballot-stuffing.

He made little mention of the sacrifice Americans honor on Memorial Day or the grim toll of the virus.

In fact, Trump’s barrage of social media attacks stood in sharp contrast to a sober reality on a weekend for mourning military dead — the number of Americans whose lives have been claimed by the coronavirus has eclipsed the combined total of U.S. deaths from wars in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Gentleman's Guide To Forum Spies (spooks, feds, etc.)

1. COINTELPRO Techniques for dilution, misdirection and control of a internet forum

There are several techniques for the control and manipulation of a internet forum no matter what, or who is on it. We will go over each technique and demonstrate that only a minimal number of operatives can be used to eventually and effectively gain a control of a 'uncontrolled forum.'

Technique #1 - 'FORUM SLIDING'

If a very sensitive posting of a critical nature has been posted on a forum - it can be quickly removed from public view by 'forum sliding.' In this technique a number of unrelated posts are quietly prepositioned on the forum and allowed to 'age.' Each of these misdirectional forum postings can then be called upon at will to trigger a 'forum slide.' The second requirement is that several fake accounts exist, which can be called upon, to ensure that this technique is not exposed to the public. To trigger a 'forum slide' and 'flush' the critical post out of public view it is simply a matter of logging into each account both real and fake and then 'replying' to prepositined postings with a simple 1 or 2 line comment. This brings the unrelated postings to the top of the forum list, and the critical posting 'slides' down the front page, and quickly out of public view. Although it is difficult or impossible to censor the posting it is now lost in a sea of unrelated and unuseful postings. By this means it becomes effective to keep the readers of the forum reading unrelated and non-issue items.

Technique #2 - 'CONSENSUS CRACKING'

A second highly effective technique (which you can see in operation all the time at www.abovetopsecret.com) is 'consensus cracking.' To develop a consensus crack, the following technique is used. Under the guise of a fake account a posting is made which looks legitimate and is towards the truth is made - but the critical point is that it has a VERY WEAK PREMISE without substantive proof to back the posting. Once this is done then under alternative fake accounts a very strong position in your favour is slowly introduced over the life of the posting. It is IMPERATIVE that both sides are initially presented, so the uninformed reader cannot determine which side is the truth. As postings and replies are made the stronger 'evidence' or disinformation in your favour is slowly 'seeded in.' Thus the uninformed reader will most like develop the same position as you, and if their position is against you their opposition to your posting will be most likely dropped. However in some cases where the forum members are highly educated and can counter your disinformation with real facts and linked postings, you can then 'abort' the consensus cracking by initiating a 'forum slide.'

Technique #3 - 'TOPIC DILUTION'

Topic dilution is not only effective in forum sliding it is also very useful in keeping the forum readers on unrelated and non-productive issues. This is a critical and useful technique to cause a 'RESOURCE BURN.' By implementing continual and non-related postings that distract and disrupt (trolling ) the forum readers they are more effectively stopped from anything of any real productivity. If the intensity of gradual dilution is intense enough, the readers will effectively stop researching and simply slip into a 'gossip mode.' In this state they can be more easily misdirected away from facts towards uninformed conjecture and opinion. The less informed they are the more effective and easy it becomes to control the entire group in the direction that you would desire the group to go in. It must be stressed that a proper assessment of the psychological capabilities and levels of education is first determined of the group to determine at what level to 'drive in the wedge.' By being too far off topic too quickly it may trigger censorship by a forum moderator.

North Dakota governor on brink of tears as he decries ‘mask shaming’

In North Dakota on Friday, the Republican governor, Doug Burgum, decried a “senseless dividing line” between US citizens over whether masks should be worn in public during the coronavirus pandemic.

As he pleaded with citizens of his state to “try to dial up your empathy and your understanding”, Burgum was moved to the brink of tears.

Related: No masks allowed: stores turn customers away in US culture war

“We’re all in this together and there’s only one battle we’re fighting,” he said. “And that’s the battle of the virus.”

As Donald Trump encourages states to reopen their battered economies, federal authorities are recommending covering the face in public when social distancing is difficult, for example in grocery stores.

Some states require residents to wear masks in public settings. North Dakota, where Burgum allowed reopening to start from 1 May, does not.

The president has notably refused to wear a mask in public, although he was photographed wearing one on a visit to a Ford plant in Michigan this week.

On Saturday, Secret Service officers who were with the president on a trip to a golf course were pictured wearing masks. Trump was not.

Some rightwing protesters have attracted publicity by refusing to wear masks, while some shopkeepers have reportedly sought to deny service to people wearing face coverings.

Speaking to reporters at the state capitol in Bismarck on Friday, Bergum said he “would really love to see in North Dakota that we could just skip this thing that other parts of the nation are going through, that they’re creating a divide. Either it’s ideological or political or something around mask versus no mask.

“This is I would say a senseless dividing line and I would ask people to try to dial up your empathy and your understanding. If someone is wearing a mask, they’re not doing it to represent what political party they’re in or what candidates they support.”

As he continued, Burgum struggled not to break down in tears.

“They might be doing it because they’ve got a five-year-old who’s been going through cancer treatments,” he said.

“They might have vulnerable adults in their life who currently have Covid-19 and are fighting.

“So again, I would just love to see our state, as part of being ‘North Dakota smart’, also be ‘North Dakota kind’, ‘North Dakota empathetic’, ‘North Dakota understanding’, to do this thing. Because if somebody wants to wear a mask, there should be no mask shaming.”

Worst-case scenario planners are worried about Trump and the November election

WASHINGTON — In October, President Donald Trump declares a state of emergency in major cities in battleground states, like Milwaukee and Detroit, banning polling places from opening.

A week before the election, Attorney General William Barr announces a criminal investigation into the Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden.

After Biden wins a narrow Electoral College victory, Trump refuses to accept the results, won’t leave the White House and declines to allow the Biden transition team customary access to agencies before the Jan. 20 inauguration.

Far-fetched conspiracy theories? Not to a group of worst-case scenario planners — mostly Democrats, but some anti-Trump Republicans as well — who have been gaming out various doomsday options for the 2020 presidential election. Outraged by Trump and fearful that he might try to disrupt the campaign before, during and after Election Day, they are engaged in a process that began in the realm of science fiction but has nudged closer to reality as Trump and his administration abandon long-standing political norms.

The anxiety has intensified in recent weeks as the president continues to attack the integrity of mail voting and insinuate that the election system is rigged, while his Republican allies ramp up efforts to control who can vote and how. Just last week, Trump threatened to withhold funding from states that defy his wishes on expanding mail voting, while also amplifying unfounded claims of voter fraud in battleground states.

“In the eight to 10 months I’ve been yapping at people about this stuff, the reactions have gone from, ‘Don’t be silly, that won’t happen,’ to an increasing sense of, ‘You know, that could happen,’” said Rosa Brooks, a Georgetown University law professor. Earlier this year, Brooks convened an informal group of Democrats and never-Trump Republicans to brainstorm about ways the Trump administration could disrupt the election and to think about ways to prevent it.

But the anxiety is hardly limited to outside groups.

Marc Elias, a Washington lawyer who leads the Democratic National Committee’s legal efforts to fight voter suppression measures, said not a day goes by when he doesn’t field a question from senior Democratic officials about whether Trump could postpone or cancel the election. Prodded by allies to explain why not, Elias wrote a column on the subject in late March for his website — and it drew more traffic than anything he’d ever published.

But changing the date of the election is not what worries Elias. The bigger threat in his mind is the possibility that the Trump administration could act in October to make it harder for people to vote in urban centers in battleground states — possibilities, he said, that include declaring a state of emergency, deploying the National Guard or forbidding gatherings of more than 10 people.

Such events could serve to depress or discourage turnout in pockets of the country that reliably vote for Democrats.

“That to me is that frame from which all doomsday scenarios then go,” he said.

To ward off such a scenario, Elias is engaged in multiple lawsuits aimed at making it easier to cast absentee ballots by mail and making in-person voting more available, either on Election Day or in the preceding weeks.

Biden, for his part, has suggested more than once that Trump might try to disrupt or delay the election. And his campaign grew very concerned this month when it was announced that election security briefings, which in past cycles had been delivered to candidates by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, would now be the province of the director of national intelligence. That post is currently held by John Ratcliffe, a Trump ally who was confirmed to the position Thursday. Ratcliffe was among the president’s chief Fox News defenders during the Russia investigation and has been a sharp critic of the FBI.

Trump campaign to unleash $1M on digital ads hitting Biden over 'you ain't black' comment

The Hill:

In addition to selling $30 shirts featuring the phrase"#YouAintBlack," the Trump campaign is spending $1 million on a digital ad campaign to slam former Vice President Joe Biden's comments that African American voters "ain't black" if they support President Trump.

President Trump’s reelection campaign is launching a $1 million digital ad buy underscoring former Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks that that African-American voters “ain’t black” if they are mulling backing the president.

The campaign’s plans, first reported by Politico and confirmed by The Hill on Saturday, include running a video montage of Biden’s remarks, made Friday on “The Breakfast Club” radio show. The campaign will also air a video underscoring Biden’s support for a 1994 crime bill that critics say resulted in spikes incarceration rates, particularly among people of color.

Biden’s camp has been playing defense since the former vice president set off an avalanche of criticism by saying that “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Biden apologized for his remarks hours later, admitting he’d been too "cavalier."

“I know that the comments have come off like I was taking the African American vote for granted. But nothing could be further for the truth. I've never ever done that, and I've earned it every time I've run,” he said.

The Trump campaign is seeking to capitalize on Biden’s comments as it pushes to make gains among black voters. The video montage will be featured nationally, while the clip on the crime bill will be deployed in swing states. The videos will appear on Instagram, Facebook, Google and other platforms.

The campaign is also selling $30 shirts with “#YouAintBlack” emblazoned on them.

The president, who got only 8 percent support among African Americans in 2016, is eager to make marginal gains with black voters, hoping that even nominal swings could ease his path in key battleground states.

Trump and his campaign have touted his signing of a landmark criminal justice bill into law and dropped millions of dollars highlighting the story of a black woman whose sentence Trump commuted.

Indian-American Dad Raising A Toast At His Gay Son’s Wedding

A video of Indian-American man raising a toast at his gay son’s wedding is doing rounds on the internet in which he reminisces how his son came out as gay.

A video of Indian-American man delivering an emotional speech at his gay son’s wedding is doing rounds on the internet in which he reminisces how his son came out as homosexual in high school. Dr Vijay Mehta, a resident of central Texas, raised a toast to his son, Parag Mehta, and talked about his journey as a parent in accepting Parag’s decision to marry Vaibhav Jain.

During his speech, Dr Mehta speaks about the need to be braver and more compassionate while seeking truth and spreading love. He said that he was one of the luckiest fathers around in 1997 when his son was valedictorian, spelling bee champion, and doing a great job as a Romeo in plays.

“On 27 March, at 4.25pm on that Friday night, Parag had a very small speech - ‘Dad and Mom, I am gay. I have known it since I was 10 years old’,” he added.

Dr Mehta added Parag revealed to him that he had known it since he was 10 years old but earlier he was confused. Parag told him that he thought he will hide fact until his father’s death so he won’t be embarrassed by his son’s sexuality. He also confided that he attempted suicide during his high school days but didn’t succeed.

Dr Mehta said that their life went from “the best of the time” to “the worst of the time”. In his speech, Dr Mehta acknowledges that he was a homophobic person and decided to find the best “treatment centre” in the country and find the cure for it. After the revelation, he went to a medical library and found out that there’s nothing to be cured because it is not a defect or disease.

“I asked a simple question, ‘Do I love my son any less at 4.31 than I loved him at 4.25?’. And a long pause and the answer was, ‘No, I still love him the same’,” he said.

Netizens loved the toast raised by a father for his gay son and many of them shared their own of story. “It's really rare for an Indian dad to be so accepting. Well done to him ❤️,” commented a user. “My son is gay...... there I have said it. Feels a lot better to acknowledge it openly in front of the whole world. I'm lucky to have a son who is intelligent, funny and has a whole lot of friends who accept him for what he is,” commented another user.

I want to social distance from fishfraucowcunts permanently

BRF and Other Royals, Aristos, Socialites Part III

As Part II has been paywalled already to nonsubscribers, I am starting a new thread. Do let's try to keep general news and gossip about royals everywhere here . . .

A quick scan of Billed-Blader, my favourite go-to for the Danish royals, confirms the ongoing case of bad acne that the next heir, Prince Christian is suffering. It's a miserable thing to suffer despite not being life-threatening, and as neither his mother nor father ever seem to have suffered from it if photos of them as young people are to be believed, I wonder where it comes from? It's bad enough for a boy, but worse for a girl, so hopefully the increasingly pretty Princess Isabella will not also go through it. Christian is also wearing braces on his teeth.

He's quite handsome already and growing up quickly.

Why does everyting has to be politicized in the US?

Even such common sense things like keeping yourself safe during a pandemic?

On the one side you have the deplorables wanting to open everything and refusing to follow simple rules like wearing a mask, but also on the other side you have the #staysafe, etc. assholes. No middle ground.

From what I have read, such politization of the pandemic hasn't been done in other countries, at least not in this scale.

The economy is only partially re-opening, and the likely 50 million jobs lost so far are not going to be regained for quite some time. It's time to give every American $2,000 a month for the rest of the year at least.

“We found out a couple days ago, not only is brad cashing in on the campaign and the money that hard-working Americans are sending to Donald Trump because they think he is going to use it to get re-elected, but Brad is getting [Paycheck Protection Program] payments for his companies.

Starving rats are reportedly turning into cannibals and attacking one other as their restaurant food supply disappears

Rats are growing increasingly aggressive in their hunt for food as restaurants across the US remain shuttered to slow the spread of the coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has warned.

With many restaurants now only open for takeout services, the bins that used to be filled with scraps and refuse the rodents once feasted on are much emptier — and they are getting desperate.

"Some jurisdictions have reported an increase in rodent activity as rodents search for new sources of food. Environmental health and rodent control programs may see an increase in service requests related to rodents and reports of unusual or aggressive rodent behavior," said the CDC in their release last week.

It advises that "sealing up access into homes and businesses, removing debris and heavy vegetation, keeping garbage in tightly covered bins, and removing pet and bird food from their yards" to ward off the pests.

The increased rodent activity around residential neighborhoods has health authorities concerned, with rats known to spread illnesses including salmonella and Weil's disease, according to pest control firm Rentokil.

In several major cities in the US, reports have emerged of desperate rats swarming the streets in the search for food.

Authorities in New Orleans have launched a campaign to trap and kill the rodents, reported CBS News, after videos on social media showed rats scurrying through empty streets usually thronged with revelers. The city's mayor, LaToya Cantrell, said the rats were going "crazy."

In New York City authorities have pledged to step up the fight against rats, amid reports of rodents swarming garbage on 6th Avenue and even resorting to infanticide and cannibalism to survive.

Urban rodentologist Bobby Corrigan told The Washington Post that a pest expert sent him a photo after a gruesome rat battle in Queens. A hungry nest of rats had turned on each other, Corrigan believes. A pile of rat limbs on the sidewalk was all that remained.

Terrible pet names

Where is the line drawn between whimsical and just fucking stupid when it comes to naming pets? Of course, most of us want unique names for our furry friends, and there's certainly nothing wrong with such old boring standards as Muffin, Bootsie, or Spot, although many pets have some pretty exotic names these days, such as Delilah, Oreo, and Quasar.

But there's a darker side to pet naming. I've met a pug named Wormy and a cat called Fester. These aren't nicknames that have been given to animals with regular names—these are their real names.

That said, most of us do have affectionate nicknames for our pets. Isis, my Siberian Husky (and she was named before the Middle Eastern…unpleasantness), is known around my house as Icy-juicy, Isitos, Isis-Catches-Mices, and Icicle.

Are there pet names that you simply couldn't believe—either proper names or nicknames? Please tell us.

Trump goes golfing again after renewing feuds with Columbia over coronavirus study — and Jeff Sessions

The golfer-in-chief hit the links for a second straight day Sunday even as the nation faces a grim Memorial Day with the coronavirus death toll at close to 100,000.

President Trump headed back to his golf club in northern Virginia in another signal that he is seeking to return to his pre-pandemic weekend routine.

The jarring images of Trump taking swings came as the president slammed Columbia University for its study claiming 36,000 American lives were lost by the president’s decision to wait to start closing down the nation.

“Columbia University is a liberal, disgraceful institution, to write that,” Trump said. “They play right to their little group of people.”

Trump also defended his use of hydroxychloroquine to ward off coronavirus in the interview on “In Focus with Sharyl Attkisson."

Trump also defended his use of the controversial drug hydroxychloroquine to ward off coronavirus in the interview on “Full Measure” with Sharyl Attkisson.

The president insists the drug is useful despite studies showing it causes higher death rates in COVID-19 patients.

“Hydroxy has had tremendous rave reviews,” Trump said in the interview, which was taped Friday. “I believe in it enough that I took (it)."

Trump also decided it was a good time to escalate his on-again off-again feud with fired ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

He said Sessions, whom he personally selected for the job, was not “mentally qualified” to be the nation’s top law enforcment official.

Trump and Sessions are trading barbs as the one-time #MAGA ally fights for his political life in a contentious Republican primary for his old U.S. Senate seat from Alabama.

Trump made the combative remarks on a weekend that should have been a somber time for the White House.

The Memorial Day holiday is usually marked by ceremonies honoring those that died on the nation’s battlefields. But this year, America is also mourning the death of about 100,000 people in the coronavirus pandemic.

I'm Still in Lust With My Cousin

Hi all, it’s me, the guy who was (and still is) in lust with his cousin. I’ve been inactive on here for a pretty long while, but I thought I’d drop back in to give an update to those who care 😊. Last year was pretty on and off for us as far as our hanging out as frequently as we used to goes. I think the basis of it was a really petty argument that we got into sometime last summer (can’t even remember what it was about to be honest), but a couple of personal things as well as how fucked up the world has been as of late sort of made us realize that life’s too short to be angry, especially with family.

Anyway, he was over here at my place last weekend. I hadn’t seen him since he came over and stayed a couple of days back in February. Since that time, our communication had sort of fallen back to texts, phone calls and chats on social media. I was kind of surprised when he called me up out of the blue to see what I was doing, and when he asked if he could come over I said of course. We were both a little apprehensive because of this Covid shit, but he was wearing a mask when he first arrived and said he hasn’t had any symptoms (neither have I). So, he came over last week with beer (and it was Corona! How fitting!), and what immediately caught my attention was how his dick was bulging in the outfit he was wearing. He was in a white cotton t-shirt and black shorts that came just below his knees when he was standing, and both the shirt and the shorts had that “Fuck it” stickman logo on them, the one that you sometimes see on bumper stickers and such. I told him I loved it, but the entire time he was here I could not take my eyes off of his cock looking like it was about to burst from those damn shorts. I asked him at one point if he was wearing underwear and he side-eyed me as though to say “Come on, what do you think?” And what made it even better was when he would sit down, he would pull the shorts high up on his thighs and expose those long, creamy legs of his. I knew he loved giving me an eyeful, and I couldn’t help but snap some pics. Here's one...

From throwing Manafort, Flynn, Bannon, Sessions, Cohen, Scaramucci, Daniels, Epstein and now Parscale under the bus, to creating protectionist trade wars that ruin CEOs, farmers and steel workers, to savaging Romney, Jeb, Cruz, McCain, Flake and Massie, to expanding the Welfare State and Welfare Queens with economic stimulus socialism, to adding to the vast, Democrat child rape problem, to milking federal funds for lavish State Department parties and extra security for Mar-a-lago and Trump Tower handouts, to all the Republicans trapped in Blue States who won't get corona care because their governor voted against Trump.

We’re Here on HBO

(I searched DL for it and didn’t see a thread, so don’t bark at me if this is duplicative!)

Has anyone seen this? I ran into it by chance last night and noticed Bob the Drag Queen and others from Drag Race in it. The show is shot like a documentary, and the episode I saw was in Gettysburg, where the drag queens (mostly out of drag) interview local residents about perceptions of LGBT people and drag. They intervene in a few people’s lives to bring them into the drag world for a new experience.

I liked the spirit and the approach and the direction of it a lot.

The only thing I do not get, and it’s not only depicted on this show, is the implication that being gay and dressing in drag are on and the same.

The show featured a young high school graduate who lives with his family and applies makeup in secret. It ends with his big drag debut and his family accepting him for who he is.

It featured a woman who is a former “god hates fags” type of antichrist christian who is now reformed and apologizes to her lesbian daughter by doing drag.

And the message throughout is that gay people should be accepted for who they are, and who they are is people who wear makeup.

I’m totally cool with drag queens and people who wear makeup. But I am gay and I’ve never wanted to wear makeup. Or a wig. And certainly not furniture foam padding to change my shape.

This isn’t a trans thread or a trans issue. Drag is gay-gay not trans-queer. Generally speaking, a major distinction between transgenderism and drag queens is that drag queens present as men most of the time. And so it makes me feel some kind of way to see these great interactions with potentially homophobic people informed by the implication that being a gay mean necessarily means wanting to dress in drag. I just don’t get that.

So, I've asked this question of exclusive bottom friends / fbs, but I'm curious to hear from others: If you're an exclusive bottom, can you tell us.. why?

That's a pretty joyous experience.

I can understand the guys who are 100% tops - for some penetrative sex in their butts is painful, uncomfortable or unstimulating. For others, they're dealing with internalized homophobia that says they're more "masc" if they only top.

But I don't quite understand why 100% exclusive bottoms don't like topping. Is it too stimulating? I mean, you're putting your dick in something warm and tight. What about that doesn't do it for you? Did you try topping and discover it wasn't for you or are you - gasp - a gold star bottom? If you don't like topping, do you still like rimming a guy?

Latest fake Trumptard talking point

Being circulated. Just saw a wingnut passing it off on another site.

“Spoke with a friend of mine who works in DC. He is sick to his stomach every day he goes to work. He said Democrat congress members are literally giddy with the results the virus is having on the economy.

They eagerly compare unemployment and market numbers every morning in the halls, offices and over phone conferences, laughing and mocking Trump as they watch the economy he built crumble. They are actually excited about what the virus is doing to America during an election year and the opportunities it presents to go after Trump.

He said that their intention is to drag the shutdown out as long as possible in order to crash the economy (Trumps strength) right before the election to make Trump look bad. He said Pelosi is ordering/threatening Democratic state governors to keep their states shutdown as long as possible assuring them they will be rewarded when they take the Senate and White House. All at the expense of America.

This isn’t rumor or opinion; this is happening.”

Is my roommate scamming me?

This is kind of complicated, so bear with me. I have lived in the same apartment for over 5 years as a "subletter," paying my roommate the same amount every month without knowing the total rent of the apartment. My roommate told me yesterday that he is moving out, but doesn't want to break the lease since it's entirely in his name and not up until next year. His solution is for me to find a new roommate, pay him my rent plus the new roommate's rent every month, which he will then pay to the landlord.

Sounds sketchy, right? I asked him straight up what he pays for rent since I'll have to advertise that number when I look for a new roommate. But he kept tripping over his answer and I still don't have a solid number. So I'm almost certain he's bullshitting me. Since I want to keep living in this apartment, should I ask him again how to properly advertise his room or risk getting the landlord involved... who may kick me out and/or raise the rent? Help!

Joe Biden tells popular radio host 'you ain't black' if considering voting for Trump

Former Vice President Joe Biden suggested Friday morning that an African-American radio personality “ain’t black” if he was questioning whether he should support the presumptive Democratic nominee over President Trump in the general election.

After an aide interrupted the interview to say that the former vice president was running short on time, Charlamagne Tha God asked that Biden pay the studio a visit the next time he’s in New York.

“It’s a long way until November,” he said. “We’ve got more questions.”

“You’ve got more questions?” Biden replied. “Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Charlamagne said that asking challenging questions of the Democratic candidate has nothing to do with supporting Trump.

“It don’t have nothing to do with Trump. It has to do with the fact that I want something for my community.”

Biden empathetically interrupted, telling Charlamagne to “take a look at my record, man. ... I have a record that is second to none,” and promised that he’d join the talk show in person.

Shortly after the interview aired, #youaintblack and #JoeBidenisaracist began trending on Twitter.

Trump campaign senior adviser Katrina Pierson said in a statement that Biden’s remarks make clear “that Joe Biden believes Black men and women are incapable of being independent or free thinking.”

Symone Sanders, a Biden campaign senior adviser, wrote on Twitter following the backlash Friday morning that Biden’s comments were made in “jest.”

“Let’s be clear about what the VP was saying: He was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump’s any day. Period,” wrote Sanders.

The remark came at the end of a wide-ranging interview about black America on “The Breakfast Club,” a program popular for its candid and often contentious interviews with celebrities and politicians alike. Several Democratic candidates stopped by during the primary cycle to make their pitch, including an infamous appearance by Sen. Kamala Harris, who was mocked for an answer she gave regarding music and marijuana.

Biden has already said he wants to pick a woman as his running mate, and the campaign has been pressured for months to select a black woman, pointing to the African-American community’s overwhelming support of the former vice president during the primary process, helping push him to frontrunner status. Several prominent black female politicians, including Harris and Stacey Abrams, have received notable publicity.

Recent news that Sen. Amy Klobuchar was also being vetted for vice president sounded alarms in the black community, especially considering the heavy criticism of her record prosecuting African-Americans in Minnesota.

During the interview with Charlamagne, Biden would not acknowledge any specific people on the vice presidential shortlist, but said that “multiple black women” are being considered.

Lucy's increasingly bitter, haggard look and awful new hairstyle didn't help things much. The awful Howard Duff/Ida Lupino episode, in which the Mertzes barely appeared, was the nadir of the series, though the Paul Douglas and Milton Berle episodes give it a run for its money.

What makes someone a jazz vocalist?

I love Helen Merrill's recordings from the mid- to late-1950s; their aesthetic really captures the era for me.

Anyway, I've always wondered: what makes someone a jazz vocalist (as opposed to a pop vocalist)? In today's music the question is self-evident, but in the 1950s it seems more ambiguous. Did it have to do with how they marketed themselves, or the musicians that backed them (eg Clifford Brown in the case of Helen Merrill)? Obviously Judy Garland was not a jazz vocalist, but she sang a lot of jazz standards.

I suppose Nat King Cole is an even better example, because some of his recordings were "jazz" and others were "pop." But did his vocal style itself change?

Thank you in advance, DL, for helping my unsophisticated ear understand.

What Very Famous Stage or Screen Actor Do You Think Is Hideously Overrated?

Mine is Jason Robards Jr. I saw him onstage as well as in films several times, and I always felt he was walking through his part.

A Thousand Clowns was an exception, because it's a comedy, and back in the 1960s actors played comedy *comically*, putting the jokes over with a sarcastic or whatever inflection.

But in straight drama, especially heavy pieces like A Moon For the Misbegotten, Robards wasn't acting in any sense, just mouthing lines. Yet everyone thought he was the consummate American actor. I always wondered how Colleen Dewhurst found the energy to keep her role going night after night while playing against that lump of nothing.

Elizabeth Taylor might be another instance, though I always enjoyed her. She certainly was glamorous, especially as Regina in The Little Foxes. I remember a dinner party back in the day, when everybody was tearing her Regina apart. Later, I walked home with one of the guests, and he admitted that he thought she was good but he wasn't willing to take on the fury of her detractors.

And she really had them. I could never figure out why some gays hated her so much. Does anyone here remember Terry Miller? Well-known in gay theatrical circles. He called her "pig woman." Isn't that really just...demented? Did she shoot his dog or something?

Anyway, here's everybody's chance to name his or her pet acting horror. I'm sure some of you have them. Ernest Borgnine? Benedict Cumberbatch? Please not Keanu Reeves--he's such a nice guy. And so mysterious. Is he Everydude? No dude? The perfect Neo.

You all should feel ashamed for your attitude toward Danny Roberts (Real World NOLA) having HIV

I have spoken to Danny a few times. He is nothing of what you all claim he is. He isn’t the diva asshole some of you claim he is and he isn’t some whore sleeping around with everyone who looks good. He is a very intelligent, hard working, open minded, liberal man with a focus on raising his daughter like no man I’ve ever seen. He is a good man.

He did not contract HIV by being a “whore”, he contracted it from someone he was seeing at the time who lied to him about the severity of his condition. The man lied to Danny about how virulent and positive he was, and transmitted the virus to Danny through oral sex. Danny always had protected sex with this man otherwise.

Maybe you all should grow the fuck up and stop knocking on and judging a man you have never met, and hopefully never will have the privilege and honor of meeting.

PS there is nothing wrong with enjoying sex. Don’t be hateful he has/had a healthy one while you can’t get someone to even look at you. Thanks.

And I ask you all to take a look at yourselves and your own lives and actions before you judge and tear apart a man you do not know in the slightest. Why do you have such animosity toward him?

How do you know he was a whore, or still is? Or that him being a whore is why he has HIV? I think it’s time you all reflect on yourselves.

Having a nude leaked isn't equivalent to being a “whore”

Was I right to ghost this old friend? Was his behavior that bad? Should I contact him again... year later?

I had an old friend that I knew since high school (in the 80's). We finally had a falling out while in our 40's, for a variety of reasons. Proper phone etiquette was one of the reasons, a small one, but the one that broke the camel's back.

In college we naturally drifted apart and later lived in different states and during the Facebook explosion of the mid-00's we reconnected. He would call me from time to time and we'd always chat. Like three times a year. There was one in-person visit (his home).

Years later after he got a permanent boyfriend, he seemed to take a weird turn mentally and kept losing jobs and was home all day, so he began calling me more and more until soon it was once a week. I thought it was too much but indulged because he seemed to be going through a rough patch and we still had things to talk about. There was a little weird behavior on his part (I'm hardly perfect either), but also good laughs and shared conversation so it was fine.

If ever I wasn't there he'd leave a message asking him to call him back.

But eventually he got weirder about calling me. Soon, I stopped answering the phone on his weekly call as he talked into the machine, because he'd become a creep to talk to in the first few minutes of the conversation. He began to start every conversation with, "Why didn't you answer? Were you busy or something?" And if I didn't have a solid answer he'd get slightly incredulous. Saying, "If you don't have an excuse for picking up I assume you don't want to talk to me." Huh? Then he'd seem to get it out of his system and cheer up and it was fine. I kept ignoring the red flags.

Then things got worse...

Anybody get sick from eating avocado?

Recently, we have eaten avocado with breakfast and my boyfriend has started feeling sick afterwards with stomach cramps, nausea and having to go to the toilet eventually. We removed the avocado for a couple of breakfasts and he was fine. We re-introduced avocado and he immediately got sick, worse than the prior times. He used to eat avocado without any problems. So it seems like a recent thing.

Does anyone else suffer from avocado-eating allergies? Do you just have to avoid it? He loves avocado.

Really Stupid Films, Television Shows, and Series You Nevertheless Loved

I'll start:

"Animal House" - it should really own this thread.

"A Summer Place"

"Where the Boys Are"

Frank Langella's "Dracula"

"Twister"

Old Warner Studio westerns: Cheyenne, Have Gun Will Travel, Wagon Train (but not Bonanza)

"The Patty Duke Show" with the identical looking cousins, one English, one American.

And does anyone else remember that series from some years ago, "Wolf Lake" about a bunch of shape-shifters who turn into actual wolves when they hit puberty in a little town in (naturally) the Pacific Northwest? I loved it, doopy as it was, and they cancelled it without warning, and now I'll never know if John McCann (a still hot Lou Diamond Phillips who walked around with his shirt off a good bit) ever realised that the white wolf was his long-lost Ruby, or if the daughter of Sherriff Donner (get it? get it?) ever completely flipped to wolf form as she matured.

What else of deliciously inferior quality did you defiantly like?

I've been watching it to help fall asleep at night, and because Tony Danza is one of the only "stupid cute" actors I enjoy looking at.

He adopted a son, which seems like a pretty significant plot point, but then it's never mentioned again?

Anyhow. If you are so inclined, I'd enjoy your thoughts on the show and it's cast.

@BernieSanders

In America you should not suffer financial ruin because you got sick.

@BryanHawnItunes

In America you should not suffer financial consequences because someone else got sick. Everyone should be responsible for their own health decisions. I shouldn't be paying for someone else's health problems who willfully trashes their body when I choose to take care of myself.

@macleanbrendan

Bryan, you are being deeply cruel to people who have lost loved ones to unavoidable cancers. The very young, the old and the just unlucky. It’s so distasteful and misguided. You’re kind of like a cancer on common decency.

@BryanHawnItunes

ha! unavoidable cancers! So ignorant! You prevent cancer before you have it, not once its taken hold of your body. Their are hundreds of ways to avoid cancer. it only operates in a toxic breeding ground. People who have cancer or died have been cruel to themselves. #uglytruth

Audio commentary tracks (good/bad/interesting)

Do you listen to audio commentary tracks on DVDs/blu ray? If so, what are the better ones you've heard?

Not everyone is at their ease in this scenario and that can lead to very uncomfortable listening sometimes. I think John Carpenter is one of the best directors at doing these as he's always at ease and very self-deprecating in some ways (he always points out the flaws in his films). His audio commentary to Howard Hawks's 'The Thing From Another World' is very interesting, as he knows a lot about that film.

I think the most informative I ever heard was Paul Schrader's commentary to 'Blue Collar'. It's great because he relates all the problems he had while making the film and it's therefore extremely educational about the process of movie making and how directors have to work with actors.

My Doctor is Tired of Coronavirus Politicization

Last week I had blood work done at my doctor’s office, and everyone was wearing a mask due to their policy of only allowing people in that were wearing a mask.

Today I have my follow up appointment and no one is wearing a mask. Not the staff at the front desk. Only one patient out of about 10. The sign on the door still says a mask is required, but they are all pretending like the virus doesn’t exist anymore.

I finally see my doctor and he’s not wearing a mask either. He tells me he’s tired of the politicization of the coronavirus and he’s ready to get his freedoms back. My jaw just dropped.

Morrissey talks about his first serious relationship in new autobiography (re: sorta comes out?)

Morrissey describes moment 'the eternal "I" became "we"'

Singer did not enter first serious relationship until the 1990s, when he was in his mid-30s

Morrissey did not enter into a serious relationship until the 1990s, when he was in his mid-30s, he writes in Autobiography. When he met Jake Owen Walters, he writes, "for the first time in my life the eternal 'I' becomes 'we', as, finally, I can get on with someone".

Morrissey writes movingly about the two-year relationship. "Jake and I neither sought not needed company other than our own for the whirlwind stretch to come," he writes. "Indulgently Jake and I test how far each of us can go before 'being dwelt in' causes cries of intolerable struggle, but our closeness transcends such visitations."

Morrissey never specifies whether they were lovers, but talks of sharing hotel suites, of being photographed with his head "resting on Jake's exposed belly", and of Jake bringing him tea in the bath.

He also recounts an exchange at an airport. "'Well,' says the woman in the British Airways lounge, 'you're either very close brothers or lovers.' 'Can't brothers be lovers?' I imprudently reply – always ready with the pointlessly pert, whether sensible or not."

The ending of the relationship is described in a way that could hardly be more Morrissey – with a visit to his home by Alan Bennett, who observes the pair and says: "Now, now. What's going on? Something's happened, hasn't it? … You haven't spoken a word to each other since I arrived."

Although Autobiography never specifically addresses Morrissey's sexuality, he talks about his lack of interest in girls as a teenager. "Girls remained mysteriously attracted to me," he writes, "and I had no idea why, since although each fumbling foray hit the target, nothing electrifying took place, and I turned a thousand corners without caring … Far more exciting were the array of stylish racing bikes that my father would bring home."

Jamie Lee Curtis's early post-"Halloween" horror films

Which one was the best? She exclusively did horror movies for the first 5 years of her career. I am partial to "Prom Night" just because it has some great stalking scenes; plus there's the ridiculous disco dance number, the bitchy dialogue between Jamie Lee and Eddie Benton, and an ending that is truly tragic. It's one of the few slasher movies that I feel has a lot of heart. "Terror Train" is a close second just because I love the killer's reveal at the end. "Road Games" was a decent thriller; never been a huge fan of "The Fog."
