I moved to LA in 1992 and used to hang out on Santa Monica between La Cienega and Doheny. It was where gay guys hung out. Rage, Mickey's, Studio One, Trunks, Revolver, and The Abbey when they only served coffee- it was amazing after having grown up in a suburb to have a place where you were the majority. It was all men. Very rare to see a woman there. I loved Monday night at Rage. K-Rock night. And I think Wednesday was show tunes night at Revolver.
I stopped going circa 1998. I'd gotten in a relationship, and moved on from kind of free floating from bar to bar life.
I went back the other night fro the first time in many years. I have never, ever been so dismayed and shocked. It is no longer boys town. I swear to God, it was 50/50 men and women. Not lesbians, either. Boring straight girls. Boys Town has lost all it's character, all it's cache. It's just like any other place now. What a crying shame.
They just couldn't let us have that, huh?

Why don't we ever hear today from Libertarians claiming that the 2007-2009 economic crash proves that their economic ideas aren't cuckoo? Wasn't the crash the fulfillment of all their economic dreams? I ask because I never hear them crowing about how all their predictions came true, and it could be argued that they did, so I am curious about it. Not that I think it's a good arguement, but none of their ideas seem reasonable to me.
Every time we get good economic news, a Libertarian denigrates it, so I'm wondering what it was like when we actually were getting bad economic news on a daily basis, and why I never hear about it from the Libertarians now.

Quite a number of recent threads about Dynasty. The others are all pretty specific so here's one to talk about all things Dynasty.
Here's a question. If they were to reboot the series a la Dallas, what would it be like? Who would it center around? What would the story lines be? Who would the Patriarch and Matriarch be?
I suppose the obvious choice would be for family heads to be Fallon and Jeff, although, then they wouldn't have the Carrington name. They could also go with Adam and Kirby... but they'd probably have to re-write the Adam character. My preference would probably be to have Steven be the patriarch, but that probably wouldn't happen.

Call me, "Joe."
I've taken a fair bit of sick leave lately, and when I got back to work, the Secretary (who has a huge desk calendar hanging on the bulletin board) decided to write down "Joe SICK" on all of the days that I called in sick. This is in a common area, where employees AND the general public can see the calendar.
When I got back to work and saw that, I was pissed.
I belong to a union, and by right, we are allowed to call in sick, provided we have a doctor's note, which I did.

Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris wants to buy an island off the coast of Italy or Greece to house among the hundreds of thousands of refugees crossing the Mediterranean at the risk of their own lives. "Greece or Italy, sell me an island, I declare it independent, get there the refugees and allow them to participate in building their new country," as tweeted the wealthy businessman. "And that's really feasible," he said Thursday at the AFP. "There are dozens of islands that leave hundreds of thousands of refugees can receive." Since early this year, more than 350,000 people fleeing poverty or conflict in their country of origin and have crossed the Mediterranean in the hope of a better life in Europe. More than 2,600 of them do not survive the adventure. Sawiris confirmed by an Egyptian private television that he will contact the Italian and Greek governments to concretize his idea. In Greece, which holds a forced sale of state assets, this should pose few problems.
He estimates its cost at between "10 and 100 million dollars", but thinks that the "main issue is the investment in infrastructure" will be. "There will be temporary stays to accommodate people and then you give them work in the construction of homes, schools, universities and hospitals." "But if the situation improves in their own country, the person who wants to return, according to the businessman, whose family in Egypt, the popular artificial resort of El Gouna has developed on the shores of the Red Sea.
Billionaire acknowledges that there are some problems to be overcome, first of all to convince Greece or Italy to sell him an island or to obtain the right of legal existence of the new country. But the refugees will at least be treated as a "person" and not as "beasts" is his opinion.

Students walking into a class called “Women & Popular Culture” at Washington State University (WSU) this fall were perhaps prepared to think hard about about identity politics. After all, the class at the publicly-funded school of about 28,000 students is offered through the department of critical culture, gender and race studies.
But for some in the class the syllabus went too far. In a class that examined “the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality in film and media, and the social, political, economic, and cultural practices impact of these mediums,” some language, it said, was off-limits.
“Use of racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, classist, or generally offensive language in class or submission of such material will not be tolerated,” professor Selena Lester Breikss’s syllabus read. “This includes ‘The Man,’ ‘Colored People,’ ‘Illegals/Illegal Aliens,’ ‘Tranny’ and so on — or referring to women/men as females or males.”
This wasn’t an idle warning.
“If I see it or hear it, I will correct it in class since it can be a learning moment for many students,” Breikss wrote. “Repeated use of oppressive and hateful language will be handled accordingly — including but not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and — in extreme cases — failure for the semester.”
Now, the school has issued a statement about First Amendment rights after a conservative publication reported on Breikss’s syllabus and others at WSU.
“Over the weekend, we became aware that some faculty members, in the interest of fostering a constructive climate for discussion, included language in class syllabi that has been interpreted as abridging students’ free speech rights,” a statement from WSU interim president Dan Bernardo read. “We are working with these faculty members to clarify, and in some cases modify, course policies to ensure that students’ free speech rights are recognized and protected. No student will have points docked merely as a result of using terms that may be deemed offensive to some.”
WSU’s alleged First Amendment abrogations were first reported by Campus Reform, a project of the conservative Leadership Institute. In a piece published Aug. 29, Campus Reform spotlighted Women & Popular Culture as well as a course called “Introduction to Comparative Ethnic Studies.” The syllabus for that course, taught by Rebecca Fowler, included a “A Note on [In]appropriate Terminology: Don’t use it.” The note read:
• Not “colored” person/s/people but “people of color.”
• Not “the white man” but “white men,” “white males,” or “white society”
• Not “illegal alien” or “illegals” but “undocumented” migrants/immigrants/persons. Note that the Associated Press (AP) has determined not to use it: ‘The Stylebook no longer sanctions the term “illegal immigrant” or the use of “illegal” to describe a person. Instead, it tells users that “illegal” should describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally.’
• If you use the above terms in your writing, your grade will suffer a deduction of one point per incident.

Republican presidential candidate and former technology executive Carly Fiorina said English is the official language of the United States during an interview with CNN's "New Day" on Thursday.
In case anyone forgot, there is no federal official language.
The topic of America's official language resurfaced because former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been using his fluent Spanish on the campaign trail in order to woo Hispanic voters.
"I admire the fact that Jeb Bush is multilingual. I admire the fact that so many people are multilingual, and I also think English is the official language of the United States," Fiorina told CNN.
Then she pivoted into talking about how “the border” has been unsecured for 25 years.

High school students in Hillsboro, Missouri targeted a trans senior in a protest on Monday, opposing her push to use the girls’ locker room in gym class, KMOV-TV reported.
“There’s a lot of ignorance,” Hillsboro High senior Lila Perry said of the demonstration. “They are claiming that they’re uncomfortable. I don’t believe for a second that they are. I think this is pure and simple bigotry.”
Nearly 200 students walked off-campus for about two hours as part of the protest before returning to class. Another 30 to 40 held their own gathering in support of Perry, who has identified as a girl since she was 13 but only publicly revealed her gender identity last year. She also told officials she did not want to use a unisex faculty restroom, but wanted to be allowed to use the girls’ locker room and restrooms.
“I wasn’t hurting anyone and I didn’t want to feel segregated out,” Perry said. “I didn’t want to be in the gender neutral bathroom. I am a girl. I shouldn’t be pushed off to another bathroom.”
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Perry was “locked” in Principal Cathy Freeman’s office during the protest to ensure her safety. A local man, identified as 47-year-old Jeff Childs, was asked to leave campus after the demonstration when he drove onto the school parking lot with the phrase “girls lives matter” painted on his pickup truck.
“This needs to stop before it goes too far,” said Childs, whose niece and nephew attend the local elementary school. “I’m not trying to be ignorant, but [Perry] is bringing it out in public for everybody else to deal with.”
Regardless of the feelings of residents like Childs, a state school board association official said, barring trans students from using facilities according to their gender identities could face the loss of federal funding, per an edict from the Department of Education.
“The [Department’s] Office of Civil Rights has issued an opinion that says, if you do this, you have engaged in gender discrimination,” Kelli Hopkins told the Post-Dispatch. “At the same time, there is no case law or statute in Missouri that says this is against the law.”

BERLIN—French President François Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel called for a coordinated European action to tackle the continent’s growing migrant crisis.
Their meeting on Monday comes as Europe is facing one of the largest migration waves in decades, and after right-wing protesters attacked police guarding an emergency shelter for migrants in Germany over the weekend.
Ms. Merkel and Mr. Hollande said they plan to set up joint camps to register migrants with the help of European Union staff in Italy and Greece this year to help Europe deal better with the influx and ensure a more equal distribution of asylum seekers.
Despite continued pressure from Germany, the EU so far has failed to agree upon a common response to the hundreds of thousands of people fleeing violence and persecution in countries such as Syria and Iraq.

KY Clerk Kim Davis Defies Court Order; Refuses To Issue Marriage Licenses To Gay Couples
By Carlos Santoscoy; Published: August 13, 2015
A day after a federal court ordered Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis to issue marriage licenses to all qualified couples, her office refused two gay couples.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Kentucky filed a lawsuit against Davis, the clerk of Rowan county, on behalf of five couples after she decided to stop issuing marriage licenses to all couples rather than serve gay couples.
Following the Supreme Court's ruling striking down marriage bans in all 50 states, Davis pledged never to issue a marriage licenses to a gay couple, saying it would be a violation of her Christian faith.
“It's a deep-rooted conviction; my conviction won't allow me to do that,” Davis said. “It goes against everything I hold dear, everything sacred in my life.”
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge David L. Bunning ruled against Davis and ordered her to comply with the Supreme Court's decision.
Davis, who is represented by the Christian conservative Liberty Counsel, has said that she'll appeal the ruling.
According to the AP, Davis' office turned away two gay couples Thursday morning: James Yates and William Smith Jr. and David Moore and David Ermold.
“These people are cruel and this is wrong,” Ermold said.
Outside the clerk's office, protesters held signs which read “Love won” and “Do your job.”

An Icelandic man, Gissur Simonarson, posted on twitter a photo of a visibly distressed Syrian refugee in Beirut selling pens on the street with his daughter asleep on his shoulder. He was selling blue-capped pens to support his children. People were interested in helping the man out so Simonarson tracked him down. He started a crowdfunding campaign, aiming to raise $5000 for Abdul Attar and his daughter in 15 days. He reached his target in just 30 minutes and after 4 days has raised $163,363. When Attar was told what had happened, he broke down in tears. The UN estimates there will be nearly 1.9 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon by the end of the year. Attar says he wants to use the money to put his two children through school and to help other Syrian refugees. He is a single father. His wife left him when they left Syria three years ago. His daughter Reem is four years old and his son Abdelillah is nine. He hopes to emigrate to Europe because he thinks his children will have a much better chance for a good education there. If he is unable to move to Europe, he may open a chocolate shop in Lebanon. He wants to return to Syria when the civil war ends.

The disease caused Whitney, a slender dancer at the time, to gain more than 200 pounds in one year at college. Feeling trapped in a big body, she struggled with self-doubt and negative stereotypes. Now 380 pounds and eager to continue sharing her passion for dance, Whitney has learned to embrace her body and love herself again. She teaches dance classes for plus-size girls, explores the dating scene, confronts bullies, and wears a bikini on the beach for the first time in 10 years. She also spearheads a campaign that fights body-shaming and promotes self-love and acceptance. To that end, Whitney Thore is no longer letting her fear of people's judgment dictate the way she lives her life."

Avoid alliteration. Always. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat.) Employ the vernacular. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive. Contractions aren't necessary. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos. One should never generalize. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know." Comparisons are as bad as cliches. Don't be redundant; don't use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous. Profanity sucks. Be more or less specific. Understatement is always best. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement. One-word sentences? Eliminate. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake. The passive voice is to be avoided. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed. Who needs rhetorical questions?

...or so? I read very little contemporary fiction. I'm still reading through the canon of the great classics, but I've decided to alternate my reading schedule and get a more diverse literary experience: 1 "classic" novel, followed by a non-fiction book, followed by a contemporary novel. In case it's of relevance, my favorite "classic" authors are Steinbeck and Nabokov and my favorite contemporary author is probably Zadie Smith (though her last novel, NW, left me a bit cold).
If you can believe it, I've never read a book by Cormac McCarthy, Jonathan Franzen, Philip Roth, Toni Morrison, Joan Didion, Tom Wolfe, Haruki Murakami.

“I think it’s absurd to put someone in jail for exercising their religious liberty."
“I think this is a real mistake, and even those on the other side of the issue, those who want to support a new definition for marriage, I think it sets their movement back, because its seen as that the federal government is going to come in, with bully force, and here even with police power, and incarcerate people who disagree or who still believe in the traditional notion of marriage. So I think its a huge mistake and its a step back even for those who do want to redefine marriage.”
"You know if you want to convince people that same-sex marriage is something that’s acceptable, I would say try to persuade people. But you know, if we’re going to use the federal government, and get involved in every state, locality, you know what’s going to happen? It’s going to harden people’s resolve on this issue. They’ll be no open-mindedness on this, and I think its a real mistake to be doing this. I think what’s going to happen as a result of this, is states and localities are going to opt out of the marriage business completely.”

Despite the news that David Oyelowo will voice an upcoming James Bond audiobook, it’s another British actor climbing the charts among bookmakers who are placing bets on which actor will next play Bond on-screen. Variety reports that Tom Hardy, who made a big splash this summer as the titular, dust-coated hero of Mad Max: Fury Road, is quickly gaining on previous favorites to take over for Daniel Craig as 007 when he leaves the franchise.
Entertainment bookmaking is an odd and, of course, unreliable science. But still, it’s interesting to see where the public point of view is headed. Hardy is gaining on the current favorites, Idris Elba and Damian Lewis, who are tied in the race with betting odds at 3-1. Elba has long been the favorite (and the only name, as far as the general public knows, to be officially bandied about by Sony), but former Homeland star Lewis gained on Elba just earlier this summer.
And now Hardy is the rising star in this ever-shifting spy game. An Irish online bookmaker, BoyleSports, told Variety, “The next James Bond market has certainly come alive with all the support coming in for Tom Hardy, who is now 4-1 from 6-1 to take over from Daniel Craig . . . . With the support showing no signs of drying up, we are expecting Tom Hardy to be the new favorite for the role sooner rather than later, which could result in BoyleSports being hit hard if Hardy lands the role.” Though Hardy was a hit in Mad Max, it’s not exactly a logical leap from grunting post-apocalyptic road warrior to 007. The betting British public is likely more influenced by Hardy’s next project, Legend, in which Hardy plays a pair of beautifully be-suited gangster twins. The film opens next week in the U.K.
Despite the fact that Hardy fills out a tuxedo quite nicely in the promotional material for Legend, he’s still a little rough around the edges (though some people might use other words) in that film. But if it’s a posher Bond you want, then you can look to Hardy’s roles in the likes of This Means War or Inception. Hardy’s famous “You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling” line in Inception is classic Bond.
But for those hoping to see a departure from the traditional Bond in the shape of an Elba or Oyelowo, Hardy presents a fairly predictable choice. The other men rounding out the Top 10, according to BoyleSports—Henry Cavill, Michael Fassbender, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Dougray Scott, Rupert Friend, and Dominic West—are no less of a departure from the series of white men who have played Bond in the past. There’s still time for even more upsets in the Irish bookmaking scene or, hey, among studio executives. You know, the ones who will actually cast the film. In the meantime, we have two more films with ol’ blue eyes Bond himself, Daniel Craig, including Spectre, which opens on November 6.

Supreme Court Turns Away Anti-Gay Kentucky Clerk With A Brief, Dismissive Order
by Ian Millhiser, Aug 31, 2015 9:41pm
Kim Davis, an anti-gay clerk in Kentucky who refused to issue marriage licenses in order to avoid having to issue them to same-sex couples, will receive no quarter from the Supreme Court of the United States.
Shortly after a similar request was denied by a lower federal court, Davis asked the justices for a temporary stay that would effectively permit her to continue to deny licenses to same-sex couples while she pursues an appeal seeking a more permanent order. She claims that she is entitled to deny same-sex couples a constitutional right that the Supreme Court recognized in June because she objects to their marriages on religious grounds.
Monday evening, the Supreme Court denied this request for a stay in a single sentence order. The Court simply announced that “[t]he application for stay presented to Justice Kagan and by her referred to the Court is denied.” There were no published dissents nor did any justice explain their reasons for denying the stay.
Such an order does not necessarily indicate how the justices will rule if they are someday called upon to resolve the merits of Davis’s case. Nevertheless, there are other signs that the Court did not take this particular case very seriously. As SCOTUSBlog notes, “[t]he Justices turned her down without even asking for a response from the same-sex couples who had sued her, or from state officials in Kentucky whom Davis has sued over the issue.”
In other words, a majority of the court found her request to be sufficiently unworthy that they did not even need to request briefing from the parties on the other side of the case in order to determine that the request should be denied.

The defiant Kentucky clerk who is refusing to issue gay marriage licenses despite a U.S. Supreme Court ruling against her unwittingly granted the paperwork to a transgender man earlier this year.
Kim Davis, 49, a clerk for Rowan County, has repeatedly refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in the wake of the court's decision to legalize gay marriage across America.
The deeply devout Christian claims the licenses 'conflict with God's definition of marriage' and issuing them would 'violate my conscience'. It is a 'Heaven or Hell decision' to her, she said.
But now, it has emerged that Davis previously granted marriage paperwork to Camryn Colen, who is transgender, and his now-wife, Lexie, because she did not realize that Camryn was born a girl.
Davis did not ask to see Camryn's birth certificate, which lists him as female, when the groom-to-be and Lexie showed up at Rowan County Courthouse in Morehead, according to The Guardian.
'She took me at face value and judged a book by its cover,' Camryn, 30, told the newspaper. 'She shouldn’t do that; she should just see two people in love and grant them the ability to get married.'
Camryn, who underwent gender reassignment surgery in 2013, and Lexie, 21, subsequently wed surrounded by their loved ones - just hours after receiving their marriage license on February 26.
They couple had been together two years and had welcomed their baby daughter, LaKoda, into the world two weeks earlier, Morehead State University's student newspaper, the Trail Blazer, reports.
Although the Colens initially shied away from the limelight after Davis hit the headlines for refusing to give marriage licenses to same-sex couples, they finally decided to come forward at the weekend.
They said they 'felt that it was the right thing to do'.
'We need to speak out and show she already did it,' Camryn said. 'Saying it’s a violation of her conscience, but she’s … pretty much already violated her conscience by marrying us.'
Camryn and Lexie, who identifies as pansexual, spoke to dozens of protesters outside the county courthouse on Saturday - and revealed that Davis had previously granted them a marriage license.
'She saw just a straight couple in love, and she should see everybody like that,' Camryn told the crowd, who were chanting and waving banners. 'She shouldn't just see straight couples like that.'
He added that the marriage license he was granted by Davis now feels 'bittersweet'.
'I love my wife, and I love being married to her, but at the same time, I feel so bad,' he said.
It comes as Davis has sought an emergency injunction to temporarily block a federal court order that was passed last month requiring her to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in the county.
The motion, which was filed on Wednesday, asks for the order to be blocked while Davis appeals.
The clerk, an Apostolic Christian, is preparing to go to court on Thursday to face contempt charges.
She claims her strict religious beliefs stop her from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples - as ordered by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
On Tuesday, she insisted that it is not a ‘gay or lesbian issue,’ but rather a First Amendment issue concerning her religious liberty. 'To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God's definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience,' she said.
A U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June made gay marriage legal across the United States.

Taylor Swift is facing accusations of racism and "channeling colonialism" following the recent release of her new music video for "Wildest Dreams."
The video, released live at the MTV video music awards on Sunday, has already had over 15 million views on YouTube.
In the video, Swift portrays an actress filming a colonial-era movie on the plains of Africa alongside zebra, lions and a white man. Following its release a number of articles were posted online accusing the video of having colonialist connotations.
Huffington Post's entertainment reporter Lauren Duca wrote wrote that the video "sure felt a lot like some harkening back to white colonialism."
"Instead of the cultural appropriation that has become almost status quo in today's pop music," Duca wrote, "Swift has opted for the bolder option of actually just embodying the political exploitation of a region and its people. It's brave, really."
"Almost as brave as moving sensuously in the vicinity of a real-life lion," she added.
In an essay titled "Taylor Swift Is Dreaming of a Very White Africa" and published on NPR's website, James Arinaitwe and Viviane Rutabingwa, an NGO worker and public health professional both from Uganda, wrote, "We are shocked to think that in 2015, Taylor Swift, her record label and her video production group would think it was OK to film a video that presents a glamorous version of the white colonial fantasy of Africa."
"Taylor Swift is dressed as a colonial-era woman on African soil. With just a few exceptions, the cast in the videothe actors playing her boyfriend and a movie director and his staffall appear to be white."
Arinaitwe and Rutabingwa added that, "The bigger problem is many Americans have never had an African history lesson. So we don't totally blame Taylor Swift, but the people behind the video should have done a little more research. They should have wondered how Africans would react."
Twitter users also hit out at Swift's video, labelling it racist and questioning the romanticization of white Africa.

Swift is yet to comment on the controversy, but many fans leapt to her defence on Twitter.

He says: “It was so full, and I lost him in the masses. I can do nothing but wait for him here so we can apply for asylum together. I don’t want to get sent to a reception centre in the middle of nowhere and be unable to find him again.”
Ahmed has so far avoided being picked up by the police. He managed to steer clear of them when he got off the train and they are now so busy with meeting the scores of refugees coming off trains that they are unlikely to notice another stranded soul.
His hopes rest on Hasan being allowed to get on a Germany-bound train. He reckons if the Hungarian authorities were able to decide on Monday to send the refugees to Germany, resulting in more than 3,700 arriving in Munich, surely they can do so again.
The brothers paid €49 (£36) each for the one-way journey, which took seven and a half hours. “We had been going to take a taxi for €500,” he says, referring to the service provided by smugglers, who drop refugees off at the Austrian-German border in overcrowded, ramshackle vehicles.

“But then when we heard that the Hungarians were letting people get on the train, we thought ‘why waste the money and take such a risk if they’re letting us do this?’”
Any fears Ahmed may have that his brother might now be picked up by smugglers in Budapest – “I heard about the people that have died of suffocation in lorries” – are assuaged, he says, by knowing “he couldn’t afford to pay them”.
Throughout the day, trains bring a constant stream of refugees to Munich via Austria and Italy. While not as many manage to come from Hungary, due to Budapest’s clampdown, several hundred have still made it by mid-afternoon. Groups of police officers standing around in the main hall head towards each of the trains as they arrive. They have been told in advance by the conductors on board that refugees are travelling in them.

They own the townhouse next to mine. Everyone keeps their lawns neat and tidy except them. They have a hay bale on the lawn (which has been there since last Halloween), don't cover their massive grill within the 24 hours as stipulated by the bylaws, leave children's toys and PAINT CANS! all over the steps and now (SepTEMBER 3rd!) have a SLEIGH on top of the hay bale. Recently the pig of a wife has taken to letting the dog relieve itself behind their car on the tar (imagine urine baking in 95 degree weather on hot tar) rather than walking it the extra 30 feet to the path across the parking lot. The other night when I came home there was dog shit behind the car, but it was gone the next morning.

Peaky Blinders star Tom Hardy has reportedly tied the knot with his actress fiancée. Hearts. Break. Everywhere.
The 37-year-old hunk, who has been dating Charlotte Riley since 2009, married in the South of France and managed to keep it a secret for more than two months. How they managed to keep that quiet, we're not too sure.
Tom and Charlotte, 32, decided it would be an intimate affair and were joined by a small group of friends and family at the 18th-century castle Chateau de Roussan in Provence on July 4.
The actor has a six-year-old son, Louis, by ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed, who was also at the wedding.
A family source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "It was a beautiful, low-key day made even more special because they just had their closest friends and family around them.
"Tom's son Louis played a key role during the ceremony. And they made certain to pick a stunning and private setting.
"There was nothing flash about the wedding, they always said they wanted it to be about the two of them and their family rather than any grand gesture."
Tom, who joins the cast of period crime drama Peaky Blinders in October, blamed his former drug addiction for the breakdown of his first marriage to Sarah Ward, who he split from in 2004 after five years.
Tom and Charlotte met in on the set of ITV's Wuthering Heights in 2009 and he popped the question a year later.
Charlotte previously talked about getting married, saying: "We are desperate to do it, but I’ll never have a celebrity wedding. It will be low-key, with family and friends."
It sounds like it was the perfect day for the perfect couple.

Douglas Sirk's Imitation of Life (1959) is one of my favorite films and I'm excited that I'll be getting a chance to see it on the big screen tomorrow night. But I'm worried about one thing: audience laughter.
See, like many other film fans/snobs, I view Sirk (who also created other masterful 50s melodramas such as Magnificent Obsession , All That Heaven Allows , Written on the Wind , The Tarnished Angels  and A Time to Love and a Time to Die ) as an artist offering a highly stylized critique of American society that prizes materialism over human connection. I've only seen Imitation of Life on a TV screen, safe at home, crying my eyes out at the end, so I'm excited to get the chance to appreciate his elaborate mise en scène through the production design and, most especially, his use of light/shadow and framing in the cinematography. There is a reason the film is one of the most highly regarded movies in history (on their list of the top 1,000 movies of all time, the website They Shoot Pictures Don't They ranks the film at #180).
But I'm preparing myself for the fact that other members of the audience will approach the film from a different direction: laughter. While, yes, there are some genuinely and deliberately funny bits in the film ("Oh, it's from Felucci! And he still wants me for the part!"), I wonder if much of the laughter is derisive, as if it's somehow inappropriate to allow this extravagant melodrama to affect one emotionally.
Indeed, I've heard several film critics say they won't watch the movie with the general public due to the laughter; here's an article discussing the issue.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats have rallied the 34 votes they need to keep the Iran nuclear deal alive in Congress, handing President Barack Obama a major foreign policy victory.
Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland became the crucial 34th vote Wednesday morning, declaring the agreement is the best way to curb Iran's nuclear ambitions.
Congress is to vote later this month on a resolution disapproving the deal, which is unanimously opposed by Republicans, who call it a dangerous giveaway to Iran.
Obama has vowed to veto the resolution if it passes. It would take 34 votes to uphold his veto, and Democrats now have those in hand.
The agreement — signed by Iran, the U.S. and five other world powers — seeks to dismantle Iran's nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in relief from sanctions.
President Barack Obama is just one Senate vote shy of being able to declare success on the Iran nuclear deal and cement a foreign policy legacy.
Senate support for the deal now stands at 33 votes, thanks to announcements Tuesday from Democrats Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Chris Coons of Delaware.
Once supporters reach 34 votes, they would be able to uphold Obama's expected veto of GOP legislation aimed at blocking the Iran deal. That disapproval resolution is set for a vote later this month.
Secretary of State John Kerry is sending a letter to all members of Congress outlining U.S. security commitments to Israel and the Gulf Arab states in light of the nuclear deal. The letter comes as Kerry prepares to deliver a major policy speech Wednesday in Philadelphia that focuses on how the international agreement makes the U.S. and its allies safer and how the deal is being mischaracterized by some opponents.
"I really believe the fastest way to a genuine arms race in the Middle East is to not have this agreement," Kerry said in a nationally broadcast interview Wednesday. "Because if you don't have this agreement, Iran has already made clear what its direction is."
With opposition to the agreement failing to get traction on the Democratic side, supporters may even be able to muster the 41 votes needed to block the resolution from passing in the first place, sparing Obama from having to use his veto pen. That would require eight of the 11 remaining undeclared senators to decide in favor of the deal.
"This agreement will substantially constrain the Iranian nuclear program for its duration, and compared with all realistic alternatives, it is the best option available to us at this time," Casey said in a statement. In remarks at the University of Delaware, Coons said: "I will support this agreement despite its flaws because it is the better strategy for the United States to lead a coalesced global community in containing the spread of nuclear weapons."
Republicans in Congress and running for president unanimously oppose the deal, which aims to curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for relief from economic sanctions. The Israeli government is vehemently against it, contending that concessions made to Iran could empower that country, which has sworn to destroy Israel. But critics have failed to use Congress' summer recess to turn the tide against the agreement, despite a multimillion-dollar lobbying campaign funded by the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC.
Only two Democratic senators have come out against the deal — Chuck Schumer of New York and Robert Menendez of New Jersey — while in recent weeks undeclared Democratic senators, even from red states, have broken in favor one after another.
Even if Congress were able to pass the disapproval resolution, it can't stop the deal, which was agreed to among Iran, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China. In July, the U.N. Security Council unanimously endorsed the nuclear deal, approving a resolution that would lift the international sanctions on Iran in 90 days.

Sam Lilit changed names at 16-years-old and prefers to be identified as neither male or female.
[bold]The now 18-year-old, from Melbourne, spent just one day researching genderqueer and non-binary identities on the internet[/bold] before changing to Sam on Facebook and waited for the inevitable questions to come flooding in.
Assigned female at birth, Sam then went to school and told each teacher, along with fellow students, about the identity change which received an expected mixed reaction.
Sam likes to be referred to as them, they or their which has been met with the obvious challenges in a gender-driven society.
The Year 12 high school student wears a boys school uniform and decides on which toilet, both at school and in public, to use dependent on the day and how safe the teenager feels at the time.
'Choosing what bathroom to use can be really difficult for trans people, and is often a choice between risking being verbally harassed or physically assaulted, both of which have happened to me because strangers assumed I was in the "wrong" bathroom,' Sam told Daily Mail Australia after first speaking to the ABC.
'When a place has failed to provide a unisex bathroom and not given me a safe option, I think about what I'm wearing that day, and go with whatever option I think will be the safest. Unfortunately, my school does not offer a gender neutral uniform, but I really wish it was less incessantly gendered.'
But it was only two months ago that Sam made the brave decision to tell their parents.
'They didn't take it particularly well - they don't really understand it,' Sam said.
'I understand there is very little information about this and I understand the concept that most people have never interacted with this before because there is such a lack of education and representation in the media particularly for non-binary identities, so i definitely understand why they don't get it but it's also frustrating.'
Talking about how they are referred to now, Sam said: 'I usually introduce myself by saying "I'm Sam, I go by the name of them, what about you?" which is a really good way of doing it for two reasons.'
'Firstly, it just lets them know straight away that's what I prefer so it normalises the idea that asking people's pronouns is a good thing to do and you can't assume that somebody goes by a certain set of pronouns because of the way they look - you need to ask.'
Sam has received a varied response from this type of introduction.
'Some people say "OK cool I go by whatever pronoun" some people ask why and others aren't sure what pronouns are, while some people will react hostile probably because they feel their pronoun should be obvious by the way they look.'
However, the teen who has a casual job at Woolworths, has never raised the subject of identity at work.
Another hurdle for Sam is filling out forms that nearly always requires you to give your gender.
'If it's a paper form I usually draw on another box which people never react well - some get quite angry, some say not very nice things and some people will just be confused,' Sam said.
'If it's an online form I hope that the gender thing isn't a compulsory field but if it is then I just put one of them through.'
It was a profound moment for Sam as an eight year old child when reading Enid Blyton's book 'The Famous Five' where there was a character who was born Georgina but went by the name George.
'The character went by masculine pronouns but didn't let anyone call him a boy either, and I thought "I want to be that person",' Sam said. 'I really connected to that character and looking back now that I know more about transgender and non-binary identities I understand why I connected to that character.'
But it wasn't until the adolescent years that it all really started to make sense.
'Coming across that terminology on the internet and realising that it was a thing that really existed was when I decided to change to a more gender neutral name and just wait for people to ask why.'
Sam was the first student at school to ever come out as genderqueer.

Thinking about it when I was a kid all my friends seemed smarter than me. They knew how cars worked, and how to pump gas, and knew the names of various power tools, they knew what movies were popular and knew where various sites in our city were located, they knew how to order in restaurants.
I know I was dumb because my father kept all of us purposely sheltered. He did that because he was terrified we would learn more than he knew and wouldn't need him anymore, so he kept us ignorant so he could always feel smarter than us.
But my God I was fucking dumb. I eventually learned to just keep my mouth closed out of fear of saying something stupid. The last straw for me was when I was 7 and at a friends house I was fascinated by a record album. I had never seen one before and didn't know what it was and couldn't understand how it worked.

With the exception of purse dogs and poodles, this seems to be true, and I always wondered why.
Cats are quiet, stealthy, passive-aggressive, unpredictable, cold, fast, cruel, agile...
Dogs are loud, in your face, loyal, warm/affectionate, aggressive, playful, fierce, strong, powerful...
As Michelle Pfeiffer said, because men and women started out on unequal footing, women have had to adapt in a struggle to compensate for their physical weakness, relatively speaking, and they did so just as the cat has in relation to the dog.
Likewise, we have also had to compensate in relation to straight men, who have always had the upper hand, thus, the reason we gravitate toward cats and the more feminine dog.
I'm actually a big dog person but I'm more or less indistinguishable, but in general it's gay men are cat or little dog men.

From President Obama's speech today, see below. This is why it's important to vote Democratic in the November election. We need more representatives who will fight for the working man and woman, to keep these gains from being reversed and to move forward with more gains.
When President Obama was elected, businesses where laying off 800,000 people a month; today, they are hiring 200,000 people a month.
The unemployment rate has dropped from 10.9% in 2009 to 6.1% today.
Over the last 4.5 years, businesses have created 10 million new jobs. This is the longest uninterrupted stretch of job creation in our nation's history.
There are more job openings now than anytime since 2001.
During the Obama Administration, the US has put more people back to work than in Europe, Japan, and every other advanced economy COMBINED.
Of course, there are people who are still struggling, that is why we need to vote Democratic in all offices this November, to elect people who will fight for the working man and woman. We can't afford to have these gains reversed.

"Rafael Nadal is ready to bask in the fashion spotlight — in his underwear.
The world’s eighth-ranked tennis player is about to make his first appearance as brand ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger underwear and tailored clothing, and a new men’s fragrance, TH Bold. The 29-year-old Nadal signed a two-year agreement with the brand, beginning this fall.
The tennis star will appear at this afternoon at an exclusive celebrity tennis tournament at Bryant Park in New York, hosted by Hilfiger and attended by such people as Jane Lynch, Lake Bell, Martha Stewart, Chanel Iman, Hannah Davis and Noah Mills. It is open to the public at 12:30 p.m., with V.I.P. seating. That evening, he will also participate with Hilfiger in an appearance and question-and-answer segment, moderated by Lloyd Boston, in Macy’s fragrance department.
Hilfiger told WWD that the brand this fall is relaunching its underwear business — which it has had for 20 years — with new, more technical product, including a four-way stretch microfiber with a sleek waistband. “Because we’re so global now, Rafael Nadal resonates globally in most countries in the world. He also looks amazing in the underwear and the clothes,” Hilfiger said.
“He’s not doctored up, that’s the real guy,” said the designer, discussing the underwear ads.
Hilfiger and Nadal have been friendly for several years, having met while Nadal was playing a tennis tournament in Monaco. Nadal won’t have his name on the product, but he will appear in a major campaign that breaks today and encompasses print, outdoor, television and digital advertising globally. Billboards showcasing Nadal in Hilfiger underwear will go up in such cities as New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Hong Kong, Mexico City and Melbourne, Australia."

I have gotten many comments from friends and acquaintances saying that my refusal to date bi men is a sign of bigotry, and that I am subjecting them to the same unjustified prejudice that the rest of society heaps on gay people (especially gay men).
However, while I acknowledge that bisexuality exists, I simply lose all interest in a guy who is bisexual, or is a MSM and self-identifies as "straight". It's sort of like when you meet someone who spouses radical right wing ideas or has OCD in a bad way. It's just not attractive.
Does that mean that I hate bisexual men? Well, no. I just don't want to have anything to do with them, especially in a romantic sense. Have I slept with bisexual guys? Of course, but I never took it seriously and it was a matter of "let's get down to it and then, I'm out of the door".
I have never spoken badly of bisexual men, but I have also never, ever heard anything positive about them. I have an ex who is bi, but whenever I think of him with contempt, it isn't because he was bisexual, but because he is the human equivalent of rotting shit. Still, I must admit that coming to know that he was bisexual when our relationship was already on the rocks, didn't help matters.
So, is not wanting to date bi men a sign of intolerance and bigotry in gay men? I don't think so.

I asked him once if he ever considered a therapist (not even a psychiatrist) and his response was "You're not a doctor how can you know what is best?"
Aside from a "rich interior life" he is a "fairly" regular...what to do? Clearly, and rightly, he is angry as hell at his dad and I wouldn't be surprised if he was indeed emotionally abused, but the other stuff is eyebrow raising. Oh, and he wonders why he is single...

What the fuck is wrong with me?
For supper I had to big pork chops, three tomatoes from the garden cut up with Italian dressing, two glasses of milk, a peach, and for dessert a half a box of apple cinnamon rice chex. I'll probably wake up for a little snake about 2AM.
I'm 6' 2" and weigh about 195 lbs. No fat. Very active. I've been like this my whole life. Everyone in my family is like this too. Even when they're old. No one in this household has ever died a fatty. It's so fucking annoying to always feel hungry and be thinking about eating. Anyone else like this?
I eat lunch with a friend at work a lot. They have a little fucking cup of soup with some crackers and satisfied. Who the fuck can eat like that?

I'm in my early 30's and I have lived in London and New York... I came out onto the circuit scene at 19 and everyone had to be buff to be noticed... If you weren't, you were just out... A fug musclehead had a thousand times greater chance to land a decent lay than a very, very, very cute twink...
I got me some roids STAT and did alright for myself... (Haven't done them for years though).
But... I was talking to a friend and we were discussing that all that's changing... Fewer and fewer queens are now into the muscled look, and the ones that still are are generally the now aging, then mid-thirty-somethings that granted me my degree in Body Fascism well over a decade ago... Steroids now seem restricted to those vintage queens, and to grunting straight halfwits... Primarily... Some of my fellow younger "apprentice muscleheads" of the late 90s are still at it, but not the majority...
Twelve years ago, opening the social pages of the fag rags meant glossing over pages and pages of abs and pecs glistening in sweat... Now, other than for the mostly G4P go-go dancers, not so much...
What say you? Is muscle going out of style?... I think Signorile's "Life Outside" would have to be rewritten... There are now other fads.
Every fag still works out, but she's a lot less results-obsessed than when the towers fell.

Show Me A Hero has a great cast but after just one episode it's too early to say how they fare. Winona Ryder is only in one scene so far, for example; and Alfred Molina - who all the reviews single out as being particularly reptilian in his role - is mostly in the distance. Oscar Isaac is in almost every scene and he is amazing.

I just watched Judy Garland's "A Star Is Born" and I've got to say that I find it shocking she didn't win the Oscar for that performance. There are so many scenes that were phenomenal: The Man That Got Away, the 'dinner show' sequence at home, the Academy Award scene, the dressing room breakdown scene, the screaming scene at home after Norman's death....any one of them would have propelled another actress onto an Oscar. It just boggles my mind that Grace Kelly's subdued performance beat this dazzling star turn. And everyone always talks about how amazing it is that The Man That Got Away is filmed in one, long take--and it is amazing, Cukor said no other actress in Hollywood could have done it that way--but there is also one extraordinarily long take in the 'dinner show' sequence that is nearly as jaw-dropping. It is a tour-de-force performance in every sense. Yes, her weight fluctuated (who cares?) and she does not always look her best (fault of the DP if you ask me; the lighting is downright bad in some scenes) but it is still Garland at her peak and she is thrilling. She was robbed of that Oscar.

I would honestly consider throwing him a few shekels if he had a more comprehensive site up at this point. Yeah, there's the usual BS "art" videos - see his video from New York, but then interspersed between all that rot are some truly hot videos. The video from Oregon with the two fuckbuddies is HOT HOT HOT. They're not pornstars, they're clearly regular dudes - they have that sexy guy next door thing. Fit bodies that suggest guys who like to go on long weekend hikes rather than guys who spend every waking moment at Equinox. And giving some context - the guys spend a few seconds talking frankly about what it's like to just be fuckbuddies, not boyfriends - makes the video even hotter. Could've been a bit longer, could've been better lit, but it felt real and intimate and sexy. If he did more of this, I'd be a supporter. VIDEO below...

As part as his ongoing campaign to paint Trump as not a true conservative, Bush told reporters in Miami that "El hombre no es conservador.”
Bush, who met his wife in Mexico, has used Spanish frequently on the campaign trail, including during a portion of his presidential campaign announcement.

If you guys have been watching Today show, Lester Holt was recently promoted to NBC Nightly News so Weekend Today has been a void since his promotion. The constant rotation of male hosts and new change in management often means change in direction of the show and talent. Alex Wagner has been in discussion about possibly being promoted to NBC News as a correspondent or she may become the new Weekend Today anchor.
I don't know if that means Erica Hill's anchor spot is in jeopardy, this won't be the first time she has been moved around a lot she was at CNN and CBS. She received a lot of criticism from viewers when she was appointed Jenna Wolfe's spot as co-anchor back in 2012, which made an odd transition and a difficult time for viewers to warm up to her.

A fascinating song that's like a short story. People still are debating why Billie Joe jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge, and what he was seen throwing into the water.
When I heard the song as a kid, I assumed it was a baby, but that wouldn't make sense unless it was a stillborn and premature infant. The other theory is that Billie Joe and the narrator had planned to elope, got into an argument on the bridge, and he threw his ring in the water.
The movie with Robby Benson speculated it was because Billie Joe was a tormented homosexual, but nothing in the song supports that, either. And Bobbie Gentry (who wrote the song when she was in her early twenties) never would explain, saying the song was about how casually people can treat a tragedy.
Is anybody else fascinated with "Ode to Billie Joe"?

So that aspect of it was a bummer. And, to be honest, like a prison. Especially for the group of us trying to infuse it with soul, trying to make it unique, something that was worth the price of entry.
It was about authenticity, flavor, and truth, but at the same time, I understand people want to make a lot of money, and they’re going to spend a lot of money so the playpen can be as big as it was. I can’t live that way; it sounds like a prison, to be honest, living within those expectations. I was well up for the challenge, and I still am. I’m not going to shy away from something that a lot of people are going to see. Fuck it, bring it on, life’s short.

The country has fallen victim to cheap oil and slid into recession for the first time in six years.
The G-7 economy is a big energy exporter and the slump in crude prices -- currently below $50 a barrel -- has spread pain across the country and hit growth.
Official data released by Statistics Canada on Tuesday showed second quarter GDP fell by 0.5% on annualized basis. First quarter GDP contracted by 0.8%. That puts the country in a technical recession, defined as two consecutive quarters of declining GDP.
Oil prices have been slammed in recent months due to concerns about slowing global growth and too much supply.
That's particularly bad news for Canada: The country's heavy oil trades at a discount to already weak prices, due to pipeline constraints and lower quality. Depressed crude prices and the uncertain outlook have forced companies to slash spending and delay projects across the country's huge oil sands industry.
The economy is showing other cracks. Canada's housing market is overheated and household debt continues to climb. The central bank has attempted to arrest the slowdown by cutting interest rates twice this year. Economists expect the bank to cut rates again, perhaps as soon as this month.
Canada's woes will cause jitters south of the border. The country is the biggest U.S. export market, and its economic troubles matter to plenty of American firms.
Canada accounts for about 20% of U.S. exports -- more than Mexico, the 19 countries of the eurozone, or China.
BNP Paribas economist Bricklin Dwyer said while the situation in Canada is expected to improve -- June saw GDP growth as oil prices steadied -- there was still a risk of a bigger shock to U.S. exports.
"[The] outlook for the Canadian economy suggest that it poses a significant downside risk to the U.S. growth outlook," he said.

When South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was 10 years old, she watched shop owners in rural South Carolina call the police on her father, an immigrant from India, just because he was wearing a turban. Haley told the story of how this discrimination made her feel shamed and silenced in a speech at the National Press Club in D.C. on Wednesday about “Lessons from a New South,” but she also asserted that such racism has since been largely eradicated from the region.
“A lot of people make the mistake of thinking the South is still like that today. It’s not,” she said, pointing out that an intolerant population would never have elected an Indian-American like her as governor.
What is hurting people of color, Haley told the gathered reporters and pundits Wednesday, is the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Black lives do matter,” she said, “and they have been disgracefully jeopardized by the movement that has laid waste to Ferguson and Baltimore.”
Haley later added during a question and answer session that she understands where the Black Lives Matter is coming from, saying, “People yell when they don’t feel heard” — an echo of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous quote that “a riot is the language of the unheard.” But, she continued, it’s the responsibility of all peaceful Black Lives Matter members to denounce the violent behavior of others, “or else you’re going to get tagged with it.”
As for the movement’s tactic of interrupting presidential candidates in order to have their message heard, Haley said: “You can yell and scream, but that’s not going to get you anywhere.”
Yet the strategy has captured the nation’s attention, pushed major candidates to focus on discrimination and police violence, and won recognition in the Democratic Party platform.
Haley was widely praised and held up as a potential vice presidential candidate after she signed a bill removing the Confederate flag from the South Carolina statehouse earlier this summer, in the wake of a mass shooting perpetrated by an admirer of the symbol.
She defended that decision Wednesday, saying, “The statehouse belongs to all people and needs to be welcoming to all people. That couldn’t happen with that flag flying.” But she also defended supporters of the Confederate flag, calling them “decent, wonderful people” who “are not racist.”
Yet the flag’s use has never been separate, in its long history, from white supremacy and racial terror. It was only erected at southern statehouses as a response to the Civil Rights Movement in the early 1960s. In the wake of calls across the country this summer to take down the flag and other symbols of the pro-slavery south, some lawmakers and activists who support the flag have rallied to its defense. Some have placed the flag outside King’s former church in Atlanta, Georgia, while others have renewed the call for the South to secede from the United States.
This Saturday, supporters of the Confederate flag plan to rally in front of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. “It’s time we take the fight to them and show them that we will not go away quietly!” says the Facebook page for the event.

Gender Identity: Gender Identity: One’s internal sense of being male, female, neither of these, both, or another gender(s). Everyone has a gender identity, including you. For transgender people, their sex assigned at birth and their own internal sense of gender identity are not the same. Female, woman, and girl and male, man, and boy are also NOT necessarily linked to each other but are just six common gender identities.
Gender Expression/Presentation: The physical manifestation of one’s gender identity through clothing, hairstyle, voice, body shape, etc. Most transgender people seek to make their gender expression (how they look) match their gender identity (who they are), rather than their sex assigned at birth.
Sex Assigned at Birth: The assignment and classification of people as male, female, intersex, or another sex based on a combination of anatomy, hormones, chromosomes. It is important we don’t simply use “sex” because of the vagueness of the definition of sex and its place in transphobia. Chromosomes are frequently used to determine sex from prenatal karyotyping (although not as often as genitalia). Chromosomes do not determine genitalia.
Sexually Attracted To: Sexual Orientation. It is important to note that sexual and romantic/emotional attraction can be from a variety of factors including but not limited to gender identity, gender expression/presentation, and sex assigned at birth.
Romantically/Emotionally Attracted To: Romantic/emotional orientation. It is important to note that sexual and romantic/emotional attraction can be from a variety of factors including but not limited to gender identity, gender expression/presentation, and sex assigned at birth.
Example of how to fill out your own Gender Unicorn: Many people were curious if agender and asexual people were included in this graphic. In short, they are. For example, identifying on the left of the sexuality spectra would indicate no attraction.
Changes from The Genderbread Person You may recognize this graphic as similar to The Genderbread Person by itspronouncedmetrosexual. We created a similar graphic with significant changes to more accurately portray the distinction between gender, sex assigned at birth, and sexuality.

Yes, we know she looks like shit now, but she's full of it too. Apparently she was on The Talk recently and discussed her reconciliation with John Ritter:
"We did (reconcile). I was in a beauty salon and I hadn't talked to him in a long time. I really felt so badly because I love John Ritter and it was over a contract dispute that never should have infiltrated John and I...
"In the beauty salon, the receptionist comes over and says, 'You have a phone call... It's John Ritter.' I go over and pick up the phone and he says, 'Listen, I forgive you.' I had a little trouble with that, but I let that go, and I said, 'I love you and I've always loved you.'"
Really? Because a few years ago her story was:
"I was in the bathroom at a premiere for "Victor/Victoria" and [Amy Yasbeck] walked in and -- she's this beautiful woman. And she said, 'I am John Ritter's wife.' And I didn't know her. And, she said, 'You and John have to get together.' And she dragged me out of the bathroom and brought me to his table. And the two of us just looked at each other and hugged each other, and cried."

Sometimes my friend will go three or four days without checking up on him he only calls him when he's horny.

You can compare the Brit versions vs. the US version -- the Brit ones are always less cloyingly sweet and more full flavored (Cadbury's Dairy Milk, Kit Kat, Mars Bar, Twix are all much better in the UK).

In the 90's when I first visited NYC, I would notice movie theater billboards advertising "all male cast" films. I honestly had no idea they were referring to gay porn. I wondered, "How good could these movies be without female characters?"
Then I went into one. It blew my mind that there so was much sex going on and those theaters became my go-to spots to get off whenever I visited the city. I met some interesting people there. Lots of married men. Lots of tourists. I then graduated to the baths, which I liked better because you can take all your clothes off and rent cubicles.
As the economy improved, these theaters quickly went away (and the police cracked down on the sex). I haven't actually seen one in more than a decade.
Tell us your experiences at the movie theaters.

Police Swarm a Pair of Stargazers, Mistaking Their Telescope for a Rifle
North Dakota State University students Levi Joraanstad and Colin Waldera were setting up a telescope last week to check out the moon and take some photographs of the celestial body when their night suddenly got a lot more dramatic. WDAY reports that a Fargo police officer mistook their telescope for a rifle—and one of their sweaters for a tactical vest. After checking to see if there were any operations going on nearby, the officer called for backup, with several officers making "contact" with the pair.
Unfortunately for Joraanstad and Waldera, they didn't take the officers seriously at first. Apparently they'd told some other folks about their plan and just assumed some friends were playing a prank on them, so they continued to rummage around in their bags and go about their business when the police called out. Eventually, thank goodness, they took the repeated warnings seriously, and complied.
Once the officers realized they were just looking at a sweet telescope, they were reportedly "very apologetic." No word on whether they hung around afterward to check out some lunar craters.

The 87-year-old man police say was soliciting an undercover cop posing as a prostitute will not be prosecuted.
"What would be the purpose in prosecuting him? " Kent County Prosecutor William Forsyth said Tuesday, Sept. 1. "He wouldn't and shouldn't go to jail and 87 years without involvement in the criminal justice system has, in my opinion, earned him a pass."
Howard Arthur Klein, likely the oldest person ever charged with this crime, was arrested by Grand Rapids Police around 10 p.m. June 26 near Broadway Street NW and Leonard Avenue, not far from his home.
Klein was arrested along with two other men and two women, the rest of whom were booked into the Kent County Jail. Klein was not taken into custody, due to his age, and was arraigned July 8.
“What would be the purpose in prosecuting him?" Kent County Prosecutor William Forsyth.
Klein allegedly claimed he thought the woman he approached was someone he knew from church. Klein faced a maximum of 93 days in the Kent County Jail if convicted.
"I could see no compelling reason to continue to prosecute Mr. Klein on the ticket he was issued for accosting and soliciting," Forsyth said. "He is 87 years old with absolutely no criminal record. In addition, I am told he struggles to some degree with dementia."

England sevens star Sam Stanley becomes first rugby union player to come out as gay
England sevens player Sam Stanley, 23, has revealed that he is gay Stanley is the first rugby union player to publicly come out as gay He has revealed that he contemplated suicide to end his pain and worry
By Nicholas Godden for MailOnline
Published: 19:35 EST, 29 August 2015 | Updated: 19:36 EST, 29 August 2015
England sevens star Sam Stanley has become the first professional rugby union player to come out as gay and has revealed he even contemplated suicide because he was worried that he wouldn't be accepted in the macho world of the sport.
The 23-year-old, who has represented England at five tournaments and is the brother of Samoan international Michael Stanley, who will be playing in the World Cup, has kept his five-year relationship with partner Laurence a secret.
'I was 10 or 11 when I realised I was different to my friends,' Stanley told the Sunday Times. 'I didn't want to accept it, I felt that being different wasn't right. I had a girlfriend and I was thinking that, like some people say, maybe it is just a phase.'
nley has spoken of the anguish he felt at not being able to discuss personal problems with family or close friends.
'I was really happy with him but if there was a bad day I wouldn't be able to share it with anyone else. One birthday we were going through a tough time and it was all really hard to take. It would have been nice to get things off my mind with someone else.'
Stanley recalls one moment when the though of ending all the pain and worry crossed his mind.
"I was standing on a bridge about four or five years ago, overlooking a motorway in Essex,' he explains. 'However, looking back, the idea that I would jump was ridiculous but it was as if I was thinking that I could get rid of the pain in one go.
'You are so worried about what people will think and I thought I couldn't be a macho rugby player the way I was, and there was nothing else I wanted to do with my life.'
Stanley joined Aviva Premiership side Saracens in 2010 before joining the sevens circuit four years later and his decision to reveal his sexuality comes five years after former Wales international Gareth Thomas announced he was gay.
Earlier this month Keegan Hirst, a professional rugby league player for Batley Bulldogs announced that he was gay and Stanley has followed suit after receiving advice from 2003 World Cup winner Ben Cohen, whose Stand Up Foundation campaigns against bullying.
'Ben is a great person to talk to. He gave me loads of great advice,' Stanley said.

Both released in 1975, one starred Barbra Streisand, the other starred Liza Minnelli. The two were fierce, feuding rivals and often went after the same roles. Rumor had it that Judy Garland considered Streisand as "the daughter she wished she had given birth to" while Rosalind Kind would often comment that "Unlike me, Lorna Luft got a fun sister." Both were nominated for the Best Actress - Musical or Comedy Golden Globe that year. The eyes of the world were glued to their TV sets the night of the awards. The prevailing opinion is that they cancelled each other out, allowing Ms. Ann-Margret to go home with the gold that night, a night neither Ms. Streisand nor Ms. Minnelli would ever forget.

Joining Decades and Antenna TV comes Buzzr, a channel devoted to classic game shows.
It's a lot like Game Show Network in the early days with even more stuff that hasn't been seen in years.
Of course, there are the 70s classic Match Game, Family Feud (this is actually every incarnation up to the most recent one, but they've been focusing on the Richard Dawson years), and of course Let's Make A Deal.
From the 80s, Super Password and Press Your Luck, with Card Sharks joining the lineup at some point.
But perhaps most excitingly, truly, truly retro stuff from the 50s: What's My Line, I've Got A Secret, and Beat the Clock.
And because all of the shows are from the library of Fremantle Media, The Price is Right is almost certain to show up eventually.

Clearly, he doesn't know any gay men. He's right about "The Town" though; no-one is talking about that film even now.
"Quentin Tarantino has dismissed the staying power of films featuring Australian actor Cate Blanchett in an interview with New York magazine last week.
“Half of these Cate Blanchett movies – they’re all just like these arty things. I’m not saying they’re bad movies, but I don’t think most of them have a shelf life,” he said.
In a wide-ranging Q&A the American director said films that were once “treated as independent movies, like the Sundance movies of the 90s” now attract bigger stars, budgets and are awarded Academy awards – but would not prove to have the same longevity.
“They’re good, but I don’t know if they have the staying power that some of the movies of the 90s and the 70s did. I don’t know if we’re going to be talking about The Town or The Kids Are All Right or An Education 20 or 30 years from now.”
He also named Notes on a Scandal, starring Blanchett, and Philomena, but acknowledged he could be “completely wrong about that. I’m not Nostradamus”.
The director also made comparisons between the “impeccable casting” of The Fighter, directed by David O Russell, and Ben Affleck’s 2010 film The Town in which he calls every cast member “beyond gorgeous”.
“When you see David O Russell cast those sisters, and you see Ben Affleck cast Blake Lively, you can’t compare the two movies. One just shows how phony the other is,” he said.
Tarantino is finishing his spaghetti western The Hateful Eight, a project that was nearly scrapped after a leak of the film’s screenplay.
He said the film, which is backdropped by the American civil war, “is about the country being torn apart by it, and the racial aftermath, six, seven, eight, 10 years later”.
He acknowledged the film would reflect current discussions around America’s race relations, something he was “very excited” about. “Finally, the issue of white supremacy is being talked about and dealt with. And it’s what the movie’s about.”
The film follows two of Tarantino’s best-received films of his career, Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, which both picked up Oscars.
A recently released trailer shows Samuel L Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, a union soldier-turned-bounty hunter hitching a ride with fellow bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh)."

A man has become the first transgender person in Britain to be convicted under new revenge porn laws after posting a sexually explicit photo of a woman on Facebook.
Jesse Hawthorne, 23, admitted disclosing private sexual photographs and film with intent to cause distress to the woman, who is his ex-girlfriend, when he appeared at Newport Magistrates' Court, Gwent.
This has only been a criminal offence since the new revenge porn laws were introduced in April, and carries a maximum sentence of two years in jail.
Hawthorne's transition was addressed in court after District Judge David Parsons asked if the former student from Caerphilly was female.
Mark Battrick, defending, said: 'My client, Jesse Hawthorne, identifies as a man, he used to be a female and was referred to as Jessica.
'Jesse underwent gender reassignment surgery not that long ago.'
Hawthorne had admitted the charge in July and is due to be sentenced at a later date, following the outcome of a trial concerning four charges of criminal damage.
He was in court today for what should have been the first day of this trial, but after a witness in the case failed to attend to give evidence it was postponed.
The court was told he had published the picture on Facebook on June 27, without his former partner's permission.
Hawthorne - who has a lipstick kiss style tattoo on his neck - will be sentenced for the revenge porn charge after his criminal damage trial to be held in front of magistrates later this month.
Hawthorne, who wears a hearing aid, was smartly dressed in black trousers, a grey shirt and black shoes as he appeared in the dock.
He has denied the criminal offence charges - two of which were against the same woman as the revenge porn offence.
The charges relate to a Nissan Almeira and a uPVC door being damaged at his ex-girlfriend's address in Caerphilly on May 2.

More and more research is showing that most people who are starting businesses and becoming successful entrepreneurs are *shocker* people that come from privileged backgrounds and are already financially stable.
[quote]We’re in an era of the cult of the entrepreneur. We analyze the Tory Burches and Evan Spiegels of the world looking for a magic formula or set of personality traits that lead to success. Entrepreneurship is on the rise, and more students coming out of business schools are choosing startup life over Wall Street.But what often gets lost in these conversations is that the most common shared trait among entrepreneurs is access to financial capital—family money, an inheritance, or a pedigree and connections that allow for access to financial stability. While it seems that entrepreneurs tend to have an admirable penchant for risk, it’s usually that access to money which allows them to take risks.
[quote]University of California, Berkeley economists Ross Levine and Rona Rubenstein analyzed the shared traits of entrepreneurs in a 2013 paper, and found that most were white, male, and highly educated. “If one does not have money in the form of a family with money, the chances of becoming an entrepreneur drop quite a bit,” Levine tells Quartz. New research out this week from the National Bureau of Economic Research (paywall) looked at risk-taking in the stock market and found that environmental factors (not genetic) most influenced behavior, pointing to the fact that risk tolerance is conditioned over time (dispelling the myth of an elusive “entrepreneurship gene“).

I realize that the parent show was beginning to show its cracks when The Colbys premiered and that the excesses of the Reagan years that had been reflected in many TV series were beginning to fall by the wayside, but the Colbys, with all of its assets, should've been able to overcome these obstacles.

According to reports from other vloggers who attended the conference, the viral Christian vlogger Sam Rader was ejected from the Vlogger Fair conference in Seattle yesterday for “threatening violence” against one or more people. This incident allegedly occurred just one day after Sam admitted to using a paid account on the cheating website Ashley Madison.
I reached out to Sam for comment earlier this week about the Ashley Madison hack and did not hear back. This morning, I reached out again to discuss the Vlogger Fair incident, and he called me back almost immediately.
In our phone conversation, Sam admitted he was kicked out of the conference. At first, he said he did not threaten anyone, but later admitted to making a threat against one person, whom he would not identify. He explained, “It was one person, and I didn’t make a threat. What happened was there was a couple of fellow vloggers who had ridiculed our family on Twitter regarding the method we were mourning the loss, our miscarriage on Twitter.”
(Sam is most famous for “surprising” his wife Nia with her own positive pregnancy test in a viral video. Three days after that video was posted, Nia tearfully announced she miscarried.)
Sam told me that problems at the conference began on Friday, when he approached one of the vloggers and “told him he had hurt our family and that was that.” On Saturday, Sam said that this vlogger “got in my face” and “put his chest up against mine” and that there was a verbal altercation from there. Sam admits that after this incident, the organizers kicked him out of the conference. He said he does not know if the other vlogger was asked to leave.
When asked to clarify whether or not he threatened anyone, Sam told me, “That’s absolutely not true. If I made a threat, it was to the one person, and it was, ‘You need to watch out before he messes with my family.’”
The vlogger and singer/songwriter Meghan Tonjes first accused Sam of threatening other vloggers in a series of tweets yesterday.

Does Marvel have a problem with LGBT superheroes?
Joe Williams, 3rd August 2015, 2:44 PM
The comic book giant has been once again come under fire for the lack of sexual diversity among its leading characters.
Marvel’s universe has often been criticised for portraying its heroes primarily as straight, white men.
The company has made attempts to be inclusive of a number of character’s gender and sexuality in the past – for example, it was recently revealed that long time X-Man Iceman is gay.
However, their attempts to promote diversity and include LGBT characters have often been slammed by fans and critics alike, who claim the company is simply trying to increase sales.
And it seems they have done it again, by making the once bisexual character – Hercules – a heterosexual.
Throughout the comic book series “X-Treme X-Men” – based in alternative Marvel universe – the character has a relationship with Wolverine.
In the mainstream Marvel universe, during in Hercules: Fall of an Avenger #1, it also is strongly implied he had a relationship with Northstar – one of Marvel Universe’s most prolific and popular openly gay characters.
Hercules is also listed on Marvel Wiki’s Bisexual Characters list.
Fans were hoping that the hero’s sexuality would be further explored in the recently announced Hercules series – however, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso has quashed any excitement surrounding the subject, by telling CBR that he will definitely be “straight” in the future.
“Hercules and James Howlett’s relationship in ‘X-Treme X-Men’ took place in a unique alternate universe, similar to how Colossus was gay in the Ultimate Universe, but is straight in the 616. Same goes for Hercules here.”
In response, fans were quick to highlight that Hercules bisexuality was a very natural progression for the character, especially considering he is inspired by Greek Mythology – in which the demigod Hercules was also bisexual.
Later in the interview, Alonso tried to silence critics of Marvel’s relationship with LGBT its characters by celebrating the diverse staff behind the comic books: “We are always looking for the best new talent — male, female, White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, Straight, Gay,” he said.
CBR noted that any further questions they asked Alfonso over Hercules’ sexuality were swiftly ignored.
Marvel’s new “Hercules” series, written by Dan Abnett and illustrated by Luke Ross, is scheduled to debut in November.

This is a truly creepy story. A beautiful blonde teenager's boyfriend kills himself, and she becomes a crusader against suicide.
But text messages show what really happened:
[quote]According to prosecutors, Carter pressured her boyfriend to go through with suicide for almost a week before he carried out the act. She counseled him to overcome his fears; researched methods of committing suicide painlessly; and lied to police, his family and her friends about his whereabouts during the act itself and after, prosecutors said.
[quote]At some point on the night of July 12, Roy went through with the suicide, using a gas-powered water pump. He died of carbon monoxide poisoning inside the cab of his pickup truck. While he was in the truck with the pump running, he was on the phone texting and talking with Carter, she told her friend. “Like, honestly I could have stopped it,” Carter texted Samantha months later. “I was on the phone with him and he got out of the car” because the carbon monoxide was working, she said. She added that she “told him to get back in.”
Her lawyer is arguing that SHE'S the victim, and he "brainwashed" her into supporting his bid for suicide.

A loony Lindsay Lohan nearly stole the show at her millionaire friend's Italian wedding according to witnesses who say she ran around naked, claimed she was drugged and painted her nails during the lavish ceremony.
The 29-year-old actress' alleged antics included her changing her outfit four times during the weekend nuptials in Florence between Justin Etzin and model Lana Zakocela, Us Weekly reported.
Sources said that during the actual ceremony the "Mean Girls" star was seen painting her nails and on her phone.
During cocktail hour she took her shoes off, despite it being "a very high-profile event," and became paranoid while accusing people of snapping her photo as she pretended to DJ on her iPhone, a source said.
But the real topper allegedly came during the reception.
That's when someone allegedly cracked a joke about the troubled star, causing her to go berserk.
"She took off all her clothes and got completely naked and was running around her villa screaming that she'd been drugged," the spy told the magazine.
An EMT was reportedly called to check on her but she was deemed OK.
"She wasn't slurring or anything. She was upset about the joke being made about her. She just wanted the attention," they said.
Lohan posted two photos of herself posing at the event, in different dresses, but left no further clue about her alleged shenanigans.
In an Instagram post on Thursday, one day before the report emerged, she shared a picture reading: "Don't like me? Cool, I don't wake up every day to impress you."

Late this afternoon the Rowan County, Kentucky government filed an official misconduct charge against anti-gay clerk Kim Davis. Lexington’s CBS affiliate reports:
The Rowan County Attorney’s Office said on Friday that it has referred to the Attorney General’s Office a charge of official misconduct against Davis. A release from the county attorneys office says, “Kentucky Bar Association rules of the Supreme Court of Kentucky prohibit the Rowan County Attorney’s Office from prosecuting Davis” because they are involved in current litigation with Davis. “Typically, the Attorney General’s office refers conflict cases to a prosecutor from another county,” the release says. The release also says Rowan County Government and the Rowan County Attorney’s Office cannot take any other action against Kim Davis. “Kentucky state government is the only entity that can move to have Kim Davis removed as Rowan County Clerk,” the release says. A spokeswoman for the Attorney General’s office told WKYT they are looking into the matter. The referral of charges comes after Davis refused to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple Thursday morning.

Merlin star Bradley James has landed the title role in Damien, Lifetime’s straight-to-series drama follow-up to 20th Century Fox’s classic horror film The Omen. In his TV directing debut, Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth) will helm and executive produce the first episode.
Produced by Fox TV Studios, the six-episode Damien follows the adult life of Damien Thorn (James), the mysterious child from the 1976 film who has grown up, seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist, the most feared man throughout the ages.
Damien, slated to premiere in 2015, is written and executive produced by Glen Mazzara via his 44 Strong Productions. Ross Fineman, who developed the project alongside Mazzara, executive produces through his Fineman Entertainment. Pancho Mansfield also serves as executive producer.

The University of Tennessee has told its staff and students to stop calling each other 'he', 'she', 'him' and 'her' - and to start referring to one another with terms like 'xe', 'zir' and 'xyr' instead.
The Knoxville branch of the public university, which has 27,400 students, sent a memo round to its members filled with unusual new parts of speech to avoid referring to anybody's gender.
According to a gay rights official at the university, the new language regime will make the university 'welcoming and inclusive' and stop people feeling 'marginalized'.
The university published the instructions on its website on Wednesday after they were emailed to every member of the university by the institution's Vice Chancellor for Diversity.
Officials have since insisted the the guidelines are not compulsory and that they do not want to 'dictate speech'.
Donna Braquet, who runs the university's Pride Center, wrote the guidelines, which are accompanied with a long table demonstrating how to replace the regular parts of speech.
She also advises staff members not to call roll in class, and to instead greet every student by asking them to announce their name and pronoun of preference.
Instead of 'he' and 'she', Braquet suggests four alternatives.
One is the commonplace strategy of using 'they', 'them' and 'their' for individuals rather than groups.
She also suggests 'ze' and 'xe' - both pronounced 'zhee' - and a variety of secondary conjugations to be used for anybody who rejects the traditional gender binary.
Barquet argues that if everybody follows her instructions, campus will become 'more inclusive'.
She wrote: 'When our organizational culture shifts to where asking for chosen names and pronouns is the standard practice, it alleviates a heavy burden for persons already marginalized by their gender expression or identity.'
There is no information on the numbers of students on campus who do not identify as the traditional genders, as the university's official data only recognizes male and female.
In an interview with DailyMail.com, Rickey Hall, the university's vice chancellor for diversity, said he was 'ancedotally' aware of students on campus who reject traditional gender divisions.
After a backlash from critics who called the proposals 'ridiculous' and 'absurd', the university clarified that nobody would be forced into using the terms.
In an interview with Fox News commentator Todd Starnes, Tennessee state senator Mae Beavers, a Republican, said: 'It’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.
'If you must interview a student before you greet the student, that’s not acceptance – that’s just absurd.'
A statement from a university spokesman said: 'We would like to offer clarification of the statements that have been made referring to gender-neutral language.
'There is no mandate or official policy to use the language. The information provided in our Office of Diversity and Inclusion newsletter was offered as a resource to our campus community on inclusive practices.
'We recognize that most people prefer to use the pronouns he and she; we do not dictate speech.
'We do strive to be a diverse and inclusive campus and to ensure that everyone feels welcome, accepted, and respected.'

By now, you should probably know about Hillary Clinton’s ill-advised use of a personal email account for her Secretary Of State correspondence. It’s been quite the scandal for her presidential campaign, as she was repeatedly ordered to hand her email server over to the Justice Department. Now that the emails (well, parts of them) have been released, we’re learning all kinds of things about the presidential hopeful, including her tastes in TV shows.
CNN has been on the email story for a while (which is about as close to journalism as it’s likely to get these days), and on Tuesday shared such highly sensitive details as this exchange with an Illinois politician about gefilte fish. More importantly, we gleaned some info about Clinton’s viewing habits. In an email sent in early 2010, Clinton asked her aide to look up the air times for Parks And Recreation and The Good Wife. The email’s subject was “Happy New Year!”, so she could very well have been following through on her resolution to watch good TV.
It’s not hard to see why Clinton would be interested in these series—they’re women-led shows that have a focus on government and politics. Parks And Recreation starred her former Saturday Night Live impersonator Amy Poehler, and The Good Wife’s storyline could very well have resonated with Clinton. Although she wouldn’t have known it at the time—unless she also has a time machine she’s not willing to share with the Justice Department—Vice President Joe Biden, Senator John McCain, and First Lady Michelle Obama would all appear on the NBC comedy. We’re not sure how Clinton would feel about the whole “Peter runs against Hillary” plot for season 7 of The Good Wife, though.
It turns out Clinton’s timing was impeccable as Parks And Recreation was a different and much better show by 2010. And The Good Wife, which was well into its critically-acclaimed first season, still had Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) on the same soundstage. So we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that these particular messages were released to help Clinton in the polls (and not just the Nielsen ones).

The Republicans’ favorite Hillary Clinton critic will be allowed in the next presidential debate on September 16. CNN, which will broadcast the debate, announced that Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO, will be among the candidates on the stage at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California.
After lagging near the back of the pack in polls for much of the summer, Fiorina received good reviews for her performance in the warm-up to the first debate last month. Consequently, she’s edged up in the polls to the point where she is now seventh.
Her presence on the stage no doubt comes as a relief to those who were worried about the optics of a group of men relentlessly criticizing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.
CNN said that the final lineup has yet to be decided for the second debate and it will include polls up to September 10 in its final determination, according to Politico.
Recent polls show Donald Trump and Ben Carson tied in Iowa, with Trump still leading nationally. For the time being Trump and Carson have displaced the previous front-runners, Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
The debate is September 16 at the Reagan Library in California.

Curious to know what the biggest age difference has been for you fellas. I'm 43. When i was 21 I had a 58 yr old fuck buddy who was just gorgeous. Perfectly sculpted body from being an outdoorsy nature enthusiast, flawless skin, salt-n-pepper hair (mostly salt, of course). In my 20s I found myself more attracted to older men in their 30s, 40s and, occasionally, 50s. Last year - when I was 33 - I slept with a 19 yr old. Though I thought he was in his mid 20s. After we fucked he confessed that he'd lied about his age.

Oliver Sacks, the neurologist and acclaimed author who explored some of the brain’s strangest pathways in best-selling case histories like “The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat,” using his patients’ disorders as starting points for eloquent meditations on consciousness and the human condition, died Sunday at his home in New York City. He was 82.
The cause was cancer, said Kate Edgar, his longtime personal assistant.
Dr. Sacks announced in February, in an Op-Ed essay in The New York Times, that an earlier melanoma in his eye had spread to his liver and that he was in the late stages of terminal cancer.
As a medical doctor and a writer, Dr. Sacks achieved a level of popular renown rare among scientists. More than a million copies of his books are in print in the United States, his work was adapted for film and stage, and he received about 10,000 letters a year. (“I invariably reply to people under 10, over 90 or in prison,” he once said.)

Is anyone watching this? It's streaming on Amazon Prime. It stars Sharon Horgan (of the fantastic, late, lamented "Pulling) with American comedian Rob Delaney. They play a couple who have a fling in London before he heads back to the States, she gets pregnant, and he goes back to see what to do about it.
"Pulling" made "Ab Fab" look like The Waltons, and Sharon Horgan brings some of that energy to this, but it's not entirely pitch black comedy. Delaney is very appealing (and hairy), like a more regular guy version of Jon Hamm.
I immediately thought of Datalounge when Sharon went to a doctor to get a second opinion about a growth in her twat, and he didn't need to examine her to confirm it. "It's not like fibromyalgia," he said, "where you can decide whether or not you have it."

'Pretty Woman,' 'Titanic,' 'Silence of the Lambs' and 'The Green Mile' are a few that, although I didn't hate them (except for 'Pretty Woman') just weren't worth my time. YMMV.

So, a few weeks ago, I'm walking towards the E train on Nassau street. I see this real thugged out Black (saggy jeans, sneakers, baseball cap,etc.) guy raising his voice at this cute White guy in a suit. The White guy just stood there ignoring him. Everyone walking by, including me, was like, "uh, oh!" Then I hear the Black guy say, "Oh, we definitely not goin' to leave it like this," as he grabs the White guy by the arm and says, "You gonna let this ruin your day?" The White guy turned away from him and half heartedly pulled away. The Black guy pulled him into him and started whispering something in his ear, and the White guy just kept nodding. Finally, the Black guy plants a kiss square on his lips, and he says, "You know I would get out of it if I could." They lock hands, kiss again and then walk in different directions. Well, guess who was on the train tonight? It was the same couple, this time they were both wearing suits. They didn't speak the entire ride. Man, I couldn't stop staring. They were so fucking hot. Someone on here must know who I'm talking about. They are both drop dead gorgeous. You can't miss them.

Back in 2010 I knew two guys who opened their own restaurants. Both were professionally trained. One was in his mid forties and the other was in his mid twenties. Both restaurants were diner type places, not fancy sit-down restaurants.
I visited both places frequently, and while the younger guys place thrived, the older guy's place did booming business at first but his customers steadily dropped off. By the eleventh month he'd be lucky to get a dozen people a day. He closed after 13 months.
The younger guys place is still open today and was again voted the best restaurant/diner by readers of the local paper for the third year and he rolled out his first food truck last year and is the second most popular place for party catering. The older guy is working in a sports bar trying to make enough to pay off his debt.
The food was excellent in both places, both guys advertised, prices were fair and the staff was very good. They both seemed like equal places but one failed and another took off. What happened?
