Papa Markle spills the dirt, it's getting juicy

“My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified,” he told The Sun. “I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile. I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now. This one isn’t even a stage smile — this is a pained smile.”

Thomas essentially describes the royal family as a cult with antique practices, lamenting, “Why in 2018 are we dressing like the 1930s? Why do they have to cover their knees?” He added that he feels as though Meghan is under “too much pressure” and that there is “a high price to pay to be married to that family.”

“Since the [first] interview, the phone number that I call doesn’t work anymore. The, I guess, liaison with the royal family never answers back, and there’s no address I can write to, so I have no way of contacting my daughter,” he said.

Don Lemon needs to take a fucking seat with her drama!

Yeatersay, feigning the quivering voice, sniffing like he’s high on coke, the watery eyes and tears, making Aretha Franklin’s death all about him!

He’s always injecting himself into the story. Anyone good or liked, Don somehow knew well and hung out with them. He was somehow “mentored” by them and loved them back. Anything bad or racist to happen, well, it’s happened to Don too. And worse. And more often.

Seriously, I’m sick of this queen. If Trump was ever right about anything in his miserable life, it was calling Don Lemon the most stupid man on television.

Does anyone else leave their apartment door unlocked when they're at home?

A friend recently spent a night at my place and she was shocked I didn't lock the door before we went to sleep. She was even more shocked when I told her I usually leave the door unlocked if I have some errands nearby to run as well (those that take less than 45 minutes).

I live in small town and our apartment building has only 6 flats (and I know all of my neighbors) so I guess I feel protected enough by the locked building door downstairs. Should I be grateful I live in such a safe environment or am I just asking for trouble?

“1984” wasn’t science fiction

Orwell didnt imagine a world

1- where the citizens VOLUNTARILY register every detail of their personal lives, all of their political views, all of their “likes” and “dislikes”, in a single repository.

2- where they PAY to have their DNA analyzed and recorded. Every genetic “flaw” on permanent record.

3- where everyone carries a camera to surveill their fellow citizens so they can broadcast snippets of behavior deemed unacceptable (with no context).

Mozzarella

Cheese aficianadoes, I need advice on mozzarella. I'm in Ireland, so getting it fresh or locally is not an option. I've recently been getting it from Aldi-it's German made but frankly tasteless. Aldi also have Buffalo Mozzarella which is made by a guy in Cork, and the taste is incredible. It's twice the price, but that's not an issue. I wondered if the choice of milk used is an issue with respect to taste, or is it that mass produced mozzarella is just rubbish.

Eldergays, tell us about Merchant & Ivory's 'MAURICE'

Did you see the film in cinemas? Did it affect you profoundly? When I was in high school, I stumbled upon the film at an independent video store and rented the VHS. This was '99 or so.

I remember being rather cool to the film -- I watched it again a few years later and finally 'got' it. Beautiful score by Richard Robbins, too. And, I'm now learning, from this new interview with Hugh Grant and James Wilby, that Robbins was in a relationship with one of them -- either Merchant or Ivory?

In this interview, Hugh and Wilby claim that their longtime screenwriting partner Ruth Prawer Jhabvala declined to adapt the novel for screen because she didn't approve of the subject matter, but I've heard it was more due to her feel that it was a minor EM Forester work. Perhaps both reasons are true?

Gay Man Turned Away From London Bear Club for Wearing High Heels

A gay man was reportedly denied entry to a gay nightclub in London for wearing thigh-high faux leather boots with four-inch heels.

A bouncer at XXL London, which caters to the bear and leather communities, allegedly turned away Pavel Vacek because of the club’s strict “no femininity policy.”

The bouncer “wasn’t aggressive,” Vacek, 33, tells Gay Star News. “He said it was club policy that you can’t wear makeup, wigs, high heels or anything feminine. He said: ‘We don’t allow femininity.’”

“I think he was just doing his job,” Vacek continues. “I was upset of course but I wasn’t blaming the bouncer. It’s just the general attitude of the club.”

“If you wear heels, it doesn’t mean you’re feminine,” argues Vacek, who wore his boots to accessorize tight black jeans and a tank top.

“Who says heels are just for women? You can be masculine and super buff and wear heels. I think it’s sexier. It’s not a written rule.”

“When you have heels on, people look at you. It’s something special, and something different from trainers. I think they’re hot.”

Vacek says he does not plan to return to XXL: “I’m quite open-minded and I like open-minded environments. If there’s strict rules for something, I don’t like it.”

Would you say Europeans are less racist than Americans are?

Ten years ago the obvious answer would be "Yes, of course" but the recent migrant crisis has shown they have lots of bigots over there too (and no, I don't consider everyone who objects to the influx of Africans to Europe to be a bigot, but many of them happen to be shameless racists). So are they really less racist or were they just unable to practice it so far, since there aren't that many colored people living over there.

"That's my tit, bitch!"

[quote]A cashier fighting with a customer at an Ohio restaurant and bar got the last word when she flashed her breast and proclaimed, 'That's my t*t bi**h.' The quickly escalating fight occurred at closing time at Mr. Zub's Deli in Akron, Ohio, and was captured on tape by the customer. It's unclear what started the argument, but the video begins with the female cashier telling the female customer that she wouldn't be getting her money back, while the customer says the cashier took her food and threw it away.

[quote]An Ohio restaurant cashier got into a fight with a customer at closing timet The cashier tired to throw the customer out, but the customer refused to leave and demanded her money backt An Ohio restaurant cashier got into a fight with a customer at closing time. The cashier tired to throw the customer out, but the customer refused to leave and demanded her money back After exasperatedly explaining that the customer's companion had asked for her money back, while the customer demands that her food be returned, the cashier appears to lose her patience and walk away from the customer.

[quote]From off camera, the cashier can then be heard yelling, 'Everybody get the f**k out! Get the f**k out!' When the customer continues to demand her food and now her money back, the cashier walks back into the frame and says, 'Take your f**king money and get the f**k out.' She then waves both her middle fingers at the camera. In response, the customer says, 'OK, this is customer service,' and the cashier replies, 'You can literally eat my a**hole. You can eat my a**hole. Get the fuck out.' During this interlude, a male restaurant employee enters the register area. 'You gotta go,' the man tells the customer. 'I hope you get f**king views, bi**h. Get the f**k out,' the agitated cashier shouts while the customer continues to record the fight.

Great, Obscure Older Meals More People Should (LITERALLY) Try

I’d love recommendations for dishes or meals that are worth people’s time but not eaten by most people for various reasons. Delicious, innovative, but practical food. Obscure but not beetles, or Cajun varmints, please.

Here is one example: Lamb Chops. I discovered them when I visited a college friend's grandmother and she served them. I had no idea people eat lamb. let alone lamp chops. It's a pretty violent name for meat - "chop" - but I liked them!

Rebecca Hall Makes A Powerful Choice With Directorial Debut 'Passing'

Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga will star in the movie about 1920s Harlem and the idea of racial passing.

ebecca Hall is prepared to make the transition from actress to writer-director with a self-adapted story from Nella Larsen’s 1929 novel “Passing,” according to Deadline. The film will take the name of its source material, of which has been recognized as one of the major African-American modernist canon texts. This is a result of the concept of race-transitioning explored throughout and the complexity of the two women at the forefront of it all. Tessa Thompson and Oscar nominee Ruth Negga (Loving) will take on the roles.

Set in the years before the Wall Street crash, Passing follows the contrasting lives of childhood friends Clare Kendry (Negga) and Irene Redfield (Thompson) and the troubles that unfold once the pair reacquaint as adults. An increasing fascination with one another’s lives is fraught with the fact Kendry has always passed as white for her husband. A downward spiral in the women’s relationship eventually leads to scandal and tragedy played out in an infamous final act.

Passing stands out as one of the few period dramas to front black female protagonists. Recently, news of Octavia Spencer’s C.J. Walker biopic affirmed that there is plenty space for the stories of historic black women on screen, and the plight to get them there is being dealt with by capable hands. Similarly, Amma Asante’s 2014 costume drama Belle and her upcoming World War II drama Where Hands Touch both feature black women in leading roles. Where there is a gap, there are features filling it, and Passing is a story worthy of being presented to audiences.

Having recently starred in the under-seen romantic period drama Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, Hall appears to have made a heavily conscious choice about the themes she wishes to portray on screen. Not only does Passing deal with racial injustice, but the narrative also explores themes of light-skin prejudice, mixed-race identity, class status, and the Great Migration of the 1920s, which provides the backdrop for the story. Many of these factors are more than relevant today.

Blind item about a retired athlete busted for restroom cruising - who is this?

This athlete reached the top of his sport several decades ago. He was in the top five in his sport a number of other years. Since his retirement, he is still involved in his sport in different roles. He is gay and deeply closeted although there have always been rumors. His family is from a conservative area and he does not want to hurt them as they were very supportive and helpful to his career when he was growing up. Awhile back, he was stopped by a cop while cruising a public restroom in this very large city where a prestigious event in his sport occurs annually. He quickly entered a sham marriage in case this story went public which it didn’t. Trouble is last month he was caught again and this time there was written documentation from the police officer in the form of a citation. What will the retired athlete do this time?

Judy Garland's "A Star Is Born"

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.

Guys over 50--the new sex objects?

Just curious if anyone else is having this experience. Since I turned 50, guys who are in the 18-26 range will not leave me alone. Especially the younger ones. If I go on Grindr, within 10 minutes I'll have half a dozen guys in that age group hit me up. Is this a new thing for young guys? Maybe I should add that I live in a neighborhood with a large latino/middle eastern population. 90% of the guys hitting me up fall into those two ethnicities. (I am white.) I'm amused and slightly perplexed by it but I'll admit I'm enjoying myself.

Is it easier being ultra-skinny today than 10 or 20 years ago?

I've always been severely underweight, to the point where people made fun of me (kids at school calling me "junkie"), or wondered whether I had an eating disorder. Because of this, I never felt my body had any sex appeal.

Today, the media is full of heartthrobs/teen idols with the exact same body type as me - Timothee Chalamet, Finn Wolfhard, Troye Sivan...(who also all happen to be Jewish like me, btw), and their fangirls like to call them "skinny legend".

Unfortunately this comes a bit late for me, as I've aged out of twinkdom (though I'm still as skinny as ever), but I can't help but feel that if I was young today, I'd feel much better about my body with role models like this.

John Cena gets a kiss on the mouth from a guy

Have we reached the point where you don’t even need to know John Cena is a wrestler to be a fan of his? Between his roles in Trainwreck, Sisters and Daddy’s Home he’s appeared in three of the biggest comedies of the year. He had a memorable spot on one of the last episodes of Parks & Recreation and also became one of the biggest memes of the year. He’s come a long way since playing Fred’s dad and wrestling Randy Orton for the thousandth time.

In fact he’s come all the way to Mike O’Brien’s closet. The comedian and Saturday Night Live writer has revived his beloved 7 Minutes in Heaven web series for Above Average, and the first guest is the 15-time World Heavyweight Champion (only one more and he ties the not entirely accurate Ric Flair record as recognized by WWE). It’s everything you look for in an episode of 7 Minutes, but with bigger muscles and ears well on their way to cauliflowering. You can watch the thing above, if you’d like.

The kiss is at the 3:36 mark...

Intrusive / Obsessive Negative Thoughts

I've been going through a very rough situation recently, and I cannot seem to live a normal life while this is going on. I can't let it leave my head for more than 10 minutes. There's nothing I can do about the situation - it just has to work itself out over time. But, my mind won't let it. When I go to sleep, it is in my dreams. I wake up after 4 hours with my mind racing about the issue. I can't go back to bed. I can't stop this no matter how many self-help articles I've read (I like the attached video but it isn't always effective). This is not the first time. I've been susceptible to this since I was fairly young, and I've had therapy for it but it's not always easy or possible to follow those steps (CBT / DBT) - especially regarding dreams and waking up in the middle of the night. I am wondering if I need some kind of pill at this point.

The Changing Face of DL Fan Frau Stalkerdom

I have not been on DL all that long--maybe three years--and it's been interesting to note the changes in the actors who attract the sort of insane stalkery fan fraus who somehow manage to find DL.

Right now it seems to mostly be about T. Chalamet, D. Gleick, S. Heughan and A. Hammer. But when I first got there, the more frequent targets were G. Harold, B. Cumberbatch, J. Kortajarena, and T. Hardy.

L. Pace and L. Evans seem to be the only constants.

There will be dozens of threads about these actors, each with 600 responses, each more banal and insane and stalkery than the last.

Someone with a lot more time on their hand should create a timeline. Would be a fascinating sociology paper, especially if they were to offer theories on the waxing and waning of the actors Datalounge fan communities and what makes the fraus finally just give up.

Justin Trudeau to brunch with 'Queer Eye' star

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is meeting with one of the Fab Five from Netflix’s smash hit “Queer Eye” for a special Pride-themed brunch.

Antoni Porowski, the show’s food and wine expert, will sit down with Trudeau at a brunch reception in Montreal in August. The pair is expected to discuss the “importance of Pride and Canada's contributions to the world today,” according to the Liberal party.

Trudeau’s party is using the event as a fundraiser. Anyone who donates to the party is entered for a chance to win return airfare and two passes to the event.

Porowski, who was born and raised in Montreal and attended Concordia University, is the only Canadian on the cast. He is also an actor and model.

Porowski’s simple recipes on “Queer Eye” have gained plenty of attention. Among his more controversial culinary creations: guacamole, avocado-grapefruit salad, meatloaf and hot dogs garnished with pickled carrots and crushed potato chips.

Porowski recently announced plans to open his own “fast-casual” restaurant in New York City.

Trudeau has long been an ardent supporter of the LGBTQ community. In 2016 he made history by marching in the Toronto Pride parade, becoming the first Canadian prime minister to march in a Pride parade.

He’s since marched in similar events in Montreal, Halifax, Edmonton, Vancouver and Ottawa.

Queer Eye launched in February and has quickly become one of Netflix’s breakout hits. Two seasons have already aired and a third is already in production.

The reality show profiles one person each episode and gives them a head-to-toe makeover, including a new haircut, wardrobe and interior design transformation.

Is my masseur trying to turn me on?

I’ve gone the same older, extremely fit, Russian masseur in NYC a few times now, and every time I go to him, I look for cues that he’s trying to turn me on or invite me to play with his dick. The problem is, I can never see exactly where he’s standing, so I don’t know where to reach out with my hand or elbow to press into his crotch.

Each time, I’ve lain on my stomach with my eventually erect penis pointing down between my thighs so he can see it when he lifts up the cover to massage my legs, I think. He does things like move my upper buttocks around in a circular motion so that I’m basically grinding my crotch into the table. It’s INCREDIBLY arousing. Did I mention he’s extremely handsome? He also has a huge dong. How do I know? Because I know someone who’s gone to him dozens of times over the past few years, and after two years of those visits, the massages turned sexual—with my friend “accidentally” pressing his hand against the masseur’s crotch and the masseur not moving away. That led to things like, the masseur undoing his fly for easier access, letting my friend reach in and feel his huge Russian cock, tickling his taint, etc. My friend, shockingly, has never actually gotten hard (too nervous for that, he says), so it’s sort of one-sided, in a way.

This is not a men-only massage parlor, and it’s not advertised as erotic. It’s a fully professional and licensed operation where this sort of thing is no doubt prohibited, yet it goes on anyway.

The other day when I got my massage, at two points, he pressed down on my taint/prostate, and it felt so good I let out a little moan and wanted to say, “Just spread my cheeks and fuck me up the ass with your huge Russian cock!” ...but we haven’t reached that level yet.

What should I do? By the way, I’m in my 30s and look younger than I am, I’m also fit and good looking and have a big 7.5” dick myself. And NO, this is NOT an EST.

I’m just wondering if anyone else has experienced this with a professional, ostensibly non-erotic masseur, and what my next move should be? I just want to get my hands on his massive, backward curving tool and hairy balls!

Italy was my favorite. I only went to the island of Capri twice for a few hours, but if you have money it would be nice to get a nice hotel for 2 nights and just chill. The blue grotto isn't worth the time/money. On the back side of the island, there is a LONG path called Via Krupp, which I just Googled and apparently it is closed due to falling rocks. I scaled down the side of the rocks to swim and it was dangerous as hell so it's probably for the best that it is closed.

I love Rome and the best part is traveling 45 minutes to the beach town of Ostia in the summer where there are thousands of Italian men in Speedos and a lot go in the woods in between the beach and road looking for action.

How TMZ quietly became America’s most potent pro-Trump media outlet

Current and former employees speak out about how the celeb gossip site has changed

June 27, 2017

After the release of the infamous Access Hollywood video where Trump was caught bragging about sexual assault, Trump struggled to generate positive coverage. One notable exception: TMZ.

The site, best known for celebrity gossip and interviews, landed an “exclusive” from former Miss Teen USA Katie Blair. In an edited two-and-a-half minute video shot from the front seat of a car, Blair says that she “never had a bad experience with him” and “has a great deal of respect for him.” Blair went on to describe, in the words of TMZ, “why Trump couldn’t have done many of the things some other pageant contestants have accused him of doing.” She concluded the video by saying she would vote for Trump.

Trump’s accusers, on the other hand, got harsher treatment. TMZ highlighted how one woman, Jessica Drake, “might’ve pulled off the ultimate publicity stunt — announcing an online sex shop 1 day before accusing The Donald.” The story wasn’t exactly true, Drake’s lawyer later made clear in an email to TMZ, but still served as an effective vehicle to discredit her as a sexual deviant and profiteer.

Another “exclusive” on TMZ reported that Bill Clinton made “trashy, disparaging remarks about women during golf games” with Trump. According to the report, Trump was considering bringing this up in the next presidential debate. TMZ cited “sources familiar with the situation.” (Trump didn’t end up bringing up Clinton’s alleged comments during the debate.)

A former TMZ employee, who spoke to ThinkProgress on the condition of anonymity, was watching this unfold — and praying for it to end. “In the weeks leading up to the election, it was all Trump all the time… and it was gross.”

But after months of fawning Trump coverage that put the site’s creator, Harvey Levin, at odds with its young, liberal, Los Angeles-area staff, many saw Election Day as the solution.

“In the back of my mind the entire time I was like, ‘All right, you know, come November this will all be over, we won’t have to think about this anymore, we can get back to normal business,” the former TMZ staffer told ThinkProgress.

Then the results came in.

“I felt like I had blood on my hands.”

The morning after the election, Levin, who sits on a raised platform in the center of an open newsroom, got a call. It was Trump. Levin “went into his big sort of conference room right behind my desk,” the former staffer told ThinkProgress, “I don’t really know what they were talking about, but I heard some laughter.”

Trump was the ideal vehicle for TMZ to break into political coverage. A reality TV host and a creature of celebrity culture pursues the most powerful position in the world — all while dishing out TMZ-friendly sound bites on a daily basis.

As Trump has risen, TMZ has quietly emerged as, arguably, the most important pro-Trump outlet in America. Fox News is the largest and best known, but its audience is older and already inclined to support Trump. Breitbart is the most aggressive and strident, but its connection to white nationalism limits its appeal. TMZ attracts a large and diverse audience — precisely the folks Trump needed to reach to stitch together a winning coalition.

Stories on TMZ not only gain a wide audience online but also appear on two nationally syndicated daily television shows (TMZ and TMZ Live) that, in most markets, are aired multiple times each day.

‘Trump is calling you’

One person who understands the importance of TMZ is Donald Trump.

In April 2016, TMZ interviewed Trump on the red carpet and asked him what TV shows he’s watching. “Only TMZ. Only Harvey. That’s all I want to watch,” Trump said with a grin.

In the weeks after taking office, Trump did not grant many one-on-one interviews with reporters. But on March 7, Harvey Levin met with Trump in the Oval Office for an hour. Levin didn’t conduct an interview but “were discussing future opportunities.”

Why isn't Audrey Hepburn a gay icon?

I've seen a few of her films ("Roman Holiday" and "The Children's Hour") and she's absolutely delightful and lovely. She's a very good actress too.

I think she's one of the most naturally beautiful women to ever be on the screen actually. She needs no makeup.

She is an icon for millennial women, but gay men somehow bypass her when they talk about their favorite female stars.

Also, has anyone seen "Wait Until Dark" or "The Nun's Story"?

Box Office: Kevin Spacey's 'Billionaire Boys Club' Earns Abysmal $126 on Opening Day

The ensemble crime-drama — also starring Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton — marks a career box-office low for the disgraced Spacey after premiering first on VOD. Disgraced actor Kevin Spacey is enduring a career low at the box office this weekend.

The ensemble crime-drama Billionaire Boys Club quietly opened Friday in 10 theaters scattered in select states across the U.S. The indie film earned an abysmal $126 for the day, following its release on premium VOD last month, according to those with access to theater grosses.

Put another way, that's a per location average of $12.60, which doesn't even equal two tickets if going by the current average ticket price of $9.27. For the full weekend, Billionaire Boys Club could have trouble hitting $1,000 — by far the worst showing of a film starring Spacey. Titles that debut first on VOD aren't generally big draws at the box office, but Billionaire Boys Club is faring particularly poorly.

Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton share top billing in Billionaire Boys Club, followed by Spacey. Emma Roberts, Jeremy Irvine, Cary Elwes, Judd Nelson and Billie Lourd also star in the movie, which is based on the real-life club of the same name that made headlines in Southern California in the 1980s. Spacey plays real-life Beverly Hills high-roller Ron Levin.

The fate of the film was left in serious question after Spacey was accused last fall of sexual assault by a number of men in the U.S. and England. Netflix and MRC fired him from House of Cards, while Ridley Scott replaced Spacey in All the Money in the World.

Earlier this summer, distributor Vertical Entertainment said it would go ahead and release Billionaire Boys Club on VOD and in cinemas. In a statement at the time, Vertical said it was "neither an easy nor insensitive decision."

"We hope these distressing allegations pertaining to one person’s behavior — that were not publicly known when the film was made almost two-and-a-half years ago and from someone who has a small, supporting role in Billionaire Boys Club — does not tarnish the release of the film," Vertical said. "In the end, we hope audiences make up their own minds as to the reprehensible allegations of one person’s past, but not at the expense of the entire cast and crew present on this film."

Billionaire Boys Club isn't playing in either Los Angeles or New York. Instead, the 10 theaters are in the Bay Area, Phoenix, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New Orleans, the Hartford/New Haven area and Miami and Sarasota, Florida.

The movie's top gross on Friday — $45 — was earned at the Metro Movies 12 in Middletown, Connecticut, followed by the AMC Sundial in Sarasota with $19. Only $9 was generated at the AMC Deer Valley 16 in Antioch, California. That could mean only one person showed up at the Deer Valley cinema; ditto for the Lakeville 21 in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, where the film earned $10 on Friday.

As a Black Gay Kid, I Saw My First Role Model in … "Scary Movie." Oof.

Spoof movies were huge in the early 2000s, and my personal favorite as a kid was the Scary Movie series. They were very dumb but also smarter than you might remember, and—for better or for worse—I related to Ray (Shawn Wayans), who was one of the first characters I saw on the big or small screen who was black and (maybe) gay. It was strangely thrilling to come across him, even in this lowbrow comedy.

But the depiction also made me wonder if other people might be less comfortable with my emerging sexuality than I was. In this episode, I explain how Ray and Scary Movie made me internalize some disturbing tropes about gay people when I was young.

Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth had both been set to return to Star Trek universe for the upcoming Star Trek 4, but it looks like they might be walking away. According to The Hollywood Reporter, talks between producers and both stars have ground to a halt over salary figures. Pine and Hemsworth both starred in JJ Abrams’ 2009 reboot, but both have become quite a bit more famous since – whilst the Star Trek films have just done sort of okay at the box office. Paramount is being cautious about paying whatever fee both stars now demand, and unless someone backs down, we’re not getting Star Trek 4 with Pine and Hemsworth.

Angelina Jolie is 'so hostile' and 'unreasonable' amid divorce from Brad Pitt that her lawyer 'is on the verge of quitting'

Things are getting so ugly between Angelina Jolie and estranged husband Brad Pitt amid their divorce that her lawyer wants to call it quits, a new reports claims.

Jolie, 43, is allegedly making the divorce negotiations and child custody battle very hostile and has been 'out for blood'.

A source connected to Pitt, 54, told TMZ that they believe the Maleficent actress wants 'to kill any relationship he has with his kids'.

They also claim that there has been a lot of screaming on Jolie's part, adding, 'She's fueled with anger and has gotten ridiculously unreasonable.'

It's become so bad that the mother-of-six's lawyer Laura Wasser, who has represented many divorcing celebrities over the years, is apparently going to quit and has 'made it known' to Jolie because it's become too 'venomous'.

Wasser, who has worked for stars such as Ashton Kutcher during his split from Demi Moore, Heidi Klum and Seal as well as Mariah Carey amid her divorce from Nick Cannon, promotes settlements and co-parenting.

TMZ claims the Wanted actress has already hired another law firm to take over when Wasser officially leaves.

The duo's divorce is still rumbling on with disagreements about how much time Pitt gets with their six children; Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, Vivienne, 10 and Knox, 10.

In June there were claims that the children were being 'used as pawns' amid the custody battle stemming from Jolie's September 2016 divorce filing.

Pitt was given a summer schedule to allow him to see more of the children while Jolie, who has primary physical custody, filmed Maleficent 2 in London.

The actor wasn't happy that the kids were going to be away from their home in Los Angeles for so long.

A source told E! news that 'Angelina has been in London and is free to travel for shorter periods of time,' as 'Brad isn't opposed to that ... but she can't leave with the kids for several months.'

And it was also reported that the Fight Club star refused to allow Shiloh and Knox to appear with Jolie in her new movie, which angered the Salt beauty and added fuel to the fire.

Her daughter Vivienne appeared in the first film, which came out in 2014.

A source also said that Pitt and Jolie do not talk to each other at all. 'They are not on good terms and are less than civil,' it was added.

Ordeal By Innocence: BBC mini series by Agatha Christie novel

Not as gripping as "Then There Were None" .

But still very good mini series .

BTW this is the third time this novel has been adapted . Before this, it was adapted in a 1985 movie with Ian Mcshane as Philip Durrant. It was again adapted in Agatha Christie's Marple series . That time DL favorite Ritchie Armitage played Philip Durrant.

This time Matthew Goode[ Single Man] has played Philip Durrant.

This series came in huge controversy last year when Former DL favorite Ed Westwick who was part of this series as Mickey Argyll was accused of rape by multiple women . He had even shot many scenes . This series was slated to release at Christmas last year but BBC halted the show .

Ed Westwick was then replaced by cute Christian Cooke and Mickey Argylll scene were re-shot .

Indian-Americans offer to fund Trump wall to win green cards

WASHINGTON: Their plight may not be as dramatic as that of the illegal immigrant mother whose infant daughter was allegedly taken from her by immigration officials as she breast-fed her in a detention center. Or as traumatic as that of thousands of young children forcibly separated from their parents under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy as they illegally crossed the border and who are now lodged in warehouses.

But in some ways, it is even more tragic – because they are young Indian adults on the pathway to legal immigration, and they say they are having to make way for illegal immigrants first.

Scores of Indian-origin teenagers and young adults supported by parents and activists rallied on Capitol Hill on Wednesday in an effort to draw attention to their strange plight that is resulting in them having to "self-deport" themselves when they reach the age of 21 -- even though their parents are in the US on legal work visas. They dubbed the DALCA kids, for Deferred Action for Legal Childhood Arrivals, as opposed to the more high-profile DACA, the sought-after pathway to citizenship that applies to children who came to US illegally.

And why do DALCA kids have to self-deport at 21? Because that is when their H-4 dependent status ends, even through their parents, most of whom are on H-1B visas, remain in green card limbo, their permanent residency applications taking as long as 70-plus years because of a backlog that is particularly tough on Indians because of their high numbers.

By some accounts, there are nearly 200,000 Indian-American children who were brought to the US legally by their parents on H-1B or other work visas. Their prevailing sentiment, says Vikram Aditya Kumar, one of Wednesday's rally organisers, is "I wish I were an illegally arrived child instead of a legal one." While DACA hopefuls are getting all the attention, the DALCA voice, he says, "is just not loud enough" even though losing DALCA kids, most of them in the STEM track, could potentially cause a brain drain for the US.

"Each high-skilled worker who is forced to move is a loss for the US and our future as a competitive tech country," says Kumar, who is also chairman of the chairman of Republican Hindu Coalition, warning that many young adults are shipping out to what he calls "Silicon Vancouver," the Canadian city just across the border. "We cannot let this talent spill out of our country. Congress must fix the root-cause of the DALCA problem: the 60-70-year backlog of high-skilled immigrants from India."

A few lawmakers like Senator Rand Paul are sympathetic, but the clock is running down. June 25 has been set as a deadline by the House GOP to secure the legal status of the so-called Dreamers, and Congress, says Kumar, needs to address this problem and "include the DALCA Dreamers in whatever compassionate fix they intend to bestow upon the DACA Dreamers."

Such is the sense of urgency and desperation that Kumar, whose father Shalabh Kumar sprang into limelight with a million dollar contribution to the Trump campaign when no one expected him to win, says the Indian-American community is offering to raise $25 billion over the next decade to help build President Trump's wall.

Appalachian Wrestling's Greatest Villain: 'The Progressive Liberal'

When Daniel Harnsberger leaves his home on the East Coast and drives into Appalachia, he usually packs a T-shirt covered in Hillary Clinton faces and spandex wrestling briefs that say "Progressive Liberal."

That's his wrestling persona — and his costume. And most weekends, Harnsberger dons it to work in semipro regional circuits as a stereotypical coastal elite who trolls in Donald Trump country. (He sometimes also wears a shirt that says "Not My President.")

He's wrestled for years — until recently, without the left-leaning political tilt — in conservative corners of Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia. It's a grind. These are small gigs, often in high school gyms or on county fairgrounds. On these regional circuits, wrestlers often schedule a match at a time.

"I was wrestling for $5 and a hot dog and a soda," Harnsberger tells NPR's Steve Inskeep. "There were times I didn't get paid at all."

But two years ago — just after Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign — Harnsberger made politics part of his act.

He was wrestling in a small town in West Virginia. As Harnsberger recalls, the promoter told him to "be the biggest heel you can be." That was easy for Harnsberger, who's always been a fan of wrestling heels — cartoonish bad guys whose job is to rile up the crowd.

So he took the microphone and brought some of Trump's campaign rhetoric into the ring: "I said, 'I hope Trump doesn't build a wall around Mexico. Instead I hope he builds it around this town so you people can't infiltrate the population.' And that got a heated reaction."

And his shtick kept getting that reaction. He honed it into a character named Dan Richards, The Progressive Liberal, that he kept playing throughout the election. When Trump won in November, crowds hated Dan Richards even more.

In character, Harnsberger tells crowds he'll take their guns. He says he wants to "reprogram" Trump supporters to make them favor renewable energy over coal.

"I know how you stupid Trump voters think," the Liberal Progressive says in one video for Appalachian Mountain Wrestling. "Allow me to illustrate: dur-dur-dur, I love coal. Dur-dur-dur, I love mountains."

And in the ring, he finishes off opponents with a move called the "Liberal Agenda" he described recently to Sports Illustrated:

"It's just a cross-arm neckbreaker, so if I'm standing in front of you, I'm grabbing each of your wrists, crossing your arms, then twisting you for a standard neckbreaker. I call that the Liberal Agenda so then the announcer says, 'Oh, he hit him with his Liberal Agenda!' "

Wrestling fans seem to eat it up. In one video, a gym full of spectators boos Harnsberger as he makes his entrance before a match; a group of kids scream at him from just a few feet away. In another video, Harnsberger gets into a shouting match with a fan. The man calls him "D.C. girl" and starts a chant of "Bye, bye, Hillary!"

Harnsberger goes out of his way to make wrestling fans hate his character. Turns out the left-wing views of the Progressive Liberal aren't an act.

"I'm the progressive liberal in real life," he says, "so I think this would generate a reaction from fans, especially the places I was going."

And that's probably what makes Harnsberger such a good villain. A great heel, he says, is one who "believes what they're saying and feels justified in their actions."

Could a homeless person live in a tall shrub?

I know lots of homless people live in parks or woods but have you ever heard of one living in shrubbery? There’s an older guy I see around my neighborhood all the time. I’ve talked to him a bit and know he’s between houses and couch surfs. We’re not close and I live in a small apartment so I haven’t offered him a place to stay. Several times in the past week I’ve seen him ducking in and out of these tall shrubs in front of my apartment building. I brought it up to my neighbor and she said she saw the same thing at odd hours and thought he may be living in there. Is that even possible though? Have you ever heard of someone living in a bush?

The Aretha/Whitney collaboration "It Isn't, It Wasn't, It Ain't Never Gonna Be" (1989)-anyone else disappointed by it?

Let me say I'm a huge fan of both ladies and love a lot of their songs. They were 2 of the best and most powerful popular singers ever. How did their collaboration end up being so lackluster? I can't believe this was the song they teamed up for. They could have really blown the roof off with a better song. It's a silly song too much dialogue and dumb lyrics. Aretha was also 47 years old at the time and the subject matter is something teens or 20-somethings would sing about.

The most entertaining part about the song is that allegedly Aretha re-recorded her part multiple times after she heard what Whitney did in the studio because she didn't want to be upstaged and wasn't used to being upstaged. Whitney had her shook. Aretha typically liked to record all her songs with just 1 take but not this time.

Even producer Narada Michael Warden couldn't save the song from stalling at #41 on the hot 100.

Help! I've fallen in love with CRYSTAL GAYLE!

A random conversation with friends this weekend has led me down a rabbit hole and I can't get up.

She was the first female country singer to go platinum -- Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blues and Talking In Your Sleep major cross-over hits. She has a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame near her older sister, Loretta Lynn. Old videos show she is a way stronger singer than Loretta.

She is still married to her childhood sweetheart, has two kids. I'm wondering if she's taken a cue from Dolly. Maybe it's just wishful thinking...

Keith Urban Thought Wife Nicole Kidman Was Out of His League When They First Met

It wasn't exactly love at first sight between Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman! Well, they both liked each other, but in a new interview, the country singer claimed he didn't think he had a shot with the actress 13 years ago. So, how did Keith and Nicole meet?

It all started back in 2005 at the G'Day USA gala. But instead of Nicole being the one to play hard to get, Keith was the one who actually gave some pushback. "I thought she was way out of my league. I'm a kid from Brissy and somewhere along the line I ended up meeting Nic. Not in a million years did I think I would end up with her," Keith confessed during a new candid interview with Andrew Denton, according to Now To Love.

He then went on to chronicle details from that night they first met. "When I met her there was just this aura that seemed so out of reach," Keith continued.

Perhaps that's why it took Keith four months to call her! Yes, you read that correctly. "I had her phone number for a while and I was thinking if I call her she's going to answer, what do I say. But I was in a place, a not very healthy place in my life," he shared of the early stages of their relationship. "I never thought she would be ever interested in me. But one day I plucked up the courage, I called her she answered and we talked and talked and talked and it was effortlessly. It was like we grew up side by side."

He continued, "It was a conspiracy of angels. Friends of hers and mine kept on encouraging it. And we gravitated towards each other very quickly."

No matter how horrible the loss, the person is supposed to be "grateful" that they "survived", as if they are some kind of bacteria that only lives to perpetuate itself biologically. I have always hated anyone who told me this when the loss was really significant. To say it to someone who is older and has less reason to "survive" as if there is going to be some wonderful future around the corner just seems cruel. People want to live and get something out of life, not just "survive". Enough already with the "survival" cliche.

No, they were not in bed together, but they were both half dressed. She was shocked and going, “What the hell is is going on here?” [Her husband] mumbled something about how [the other actor] just wanted to try on some clothes in his wardrobe. She said, “If he’s the one trying on clothes, then why are you undressed, too?” and he got all defensive and started yelling at her.

Disney Stands Firm on James Gunn Not Returning to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

"After a strong push to get James Gunn back as director of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” following his firing from the project, Disney and Marvel are standing by their decision to not reinstate him as helmer for the next installment. The decision came following a meeting between Gunn and studio chairman Alan Horn.

Gunn was let go from the project nearly a month ago when dozens of Gunn’s tweets from nearly a decade ago came to light. The so-called joke tweets, about pedophilia and rape, were recently resurfaced by alt-right agitators. The studio acted quickly to remove Gunn from directing the third installment, believing the comments were unacceptable in the Me Too era and were not in line with Disney’s family-friendly image.

Since then, support for Gunn has been widespread, especially from the “Guardians” cast. Cast members including Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana asked for Gunn to be reinstated in an open letter.

Gunn and his UTA reps pushed hard for him to be given a second chance, and Horn decided to take the meeting but only as a courtesy to clear the air with Gunn. Though the meeting was described as civil and professional, sources say that Horn stood by his decision to not reinstate Gunn as director.

Insiders say Marvel president Kevin Feige was out of town and unable to attend. Sources added that while it was rumored that Feige was pushing to bring Gunn back, Feige stands by the studio’s decision to not bring back the “Guardians” director for the third installment.

Spokespeople for Disney and Marvel declined to comment.

Once Feige is back in town, Disney and Marvel will continue the search for a new director. It is still unknown if the production schedule will be affected by the change in the director’s seat. The film was expected to go into production at the start of 2019, and while sources have stressed that Gunn’s original script will be used for the next film, it is still very likely that whoever is brought in will still need to put a polish on it in order to add their stamp to the project."

Gap In-Store Playlists - The Quest Continues

After losing my copies of all of the monthly Gap In-Store Playlists from 1992 to 2006, I thought it was hopeless to even dream about reacquiring them. It took awhile, but I created my blog in 2015 and then posted a link on here at the DL on 12/31/2015. It took over a year for someone to contact me, but when he did, it was because of the thread at the DL. This guy has shared over 50 Gap, GapBody, GapKids and babyGap playlists with me. Later another guy saw the thread on the DL, and he shared with me another 25 playlists.

So, as you can see, the DataLounge has helped me immensely in getting closer to my goal of reacquiring all of the Gap In-Store Playlists from when I worked there from 1992 to 2006. Gay men are the sort who would save the monthly playlists form when they worked at Gap.

Therefore, I'm asking again: if you worked at Gap from 1992 to 2006 and saved your store's copies of the paper playlists that came with each month's CD/tape, please share them with me. If you know someone who saved the playlists, please show them this thread.

Read the first page of the blog if you have any questions about my quest. My email address is on every page of the blog.

Thanks to those who have helped, and looking forward to receiving more Gap In-Store Playlists to share with everyone!

Restaurant are Ripoffs

My friends and family love to socialize by going out to eat. There are lots of "good restaurants" with bespoke cocktails and good wine, and not much else to do in our wealthy suburban area. We're all mostly middle class. I'm 43, single, and make 140K and my finances are in order.

Every restaurant outing seems to cost me at least 100 and sometimes 150-200. I put "good restaurants" in quotes because my foodie friends believe this but I don't think the meals and booze are worth the price.

But I like socializing.

Anybody feel the same?

Taking showers with other guys.

In high school we were required to shower after Phys ed. I still remember the first day in the locker room seeing all my teammates and guys I had crushes on taking off their clothes and completely naked in the showers. I used to masturbate frequently. Is it still a requirement to take showers after playing sports in high school? If not, why did this change? For those that did, do any of you remember that first time you were required to take your clothes off and shower with your classmates? Has anyone ever followed a guy you were attracted to into the locker room at the gym just so you can see him naked?

[Verse 1] Baby, I fucked half the boys in Paris

I'm in New York, so embarrassed

Cos I need my one

Darling, I woke up in Austin, Texas

I did decline to stay for breakfast

Cos I need my one

[Chorus] My one, my one.....

I put that loser in an Uber

Cos he's not my one

Pumpkin, I picked something up in Sydney

Now the voice inside my kidneys

This week in NY Times Wedding Announcements: two overprivileged potheads whose parents will be supporting them forever

The head of Cannabis Feminist, "a web-based community that works to promote executive women in the cannabis industry" marries a guy who is "in charge of partnerships for Tribe Socks, a custom sock brand. He is also a photographer, with a website, I See Faces, which shows what appear to be faces in everyday objects, architecture and other unexpected spots."

Fortunately, her dad is "executive vice president of the Compass Capital Corporation, a company in San Francisco that provides acquisition, financing and management for aircraft, railroad equipment and other leased assets"

And his late father was an attorney.

At 28 and 31, they're a little old to still be finding themselves.

Oh, and the clincher: they met at Burning Man.

He's finally come to terms with who he is an wants a divorce. They are already burdened with debt. She's had to ask her mother, who she isn't on the best terms with, to come and help her out. Very very few people know what's going on and on Facebook, you'd never suspect anything was wrong. It's happy family photos, pics with the kids, beaming about being pregnant -all recent. It's fascinating the illusion people create. Anyone else have similar stories?

Grace Jones. A success, or a succes d'estime?

The publicity surround the recent documentary on Grace Jones made me realize that I knew more of her than about her. I know Nipple to the Bottle and maybe one of two other songs, but not much more. Is her image more popular than her music is? I googled past concerts, and she has given surprisingly few, and in smaller places than you'd expect. Hammersmith Ballroom a few years ago? Nothing in the US outside a few in NYC and LA for the entirely of her career, and, outside, mostly at music and creative festivals. SO my question is this: how the hell does she support herself? I worked in the music field long enough to know that celebrity does not equal income at all, so she could be well known, but if she doesn't tour or sell records, how does she make a living?

Question For Gay Men over 50

This is the only place that I know of that I can get help and any insight. Only you guys would have any answers for this. I know this is not a diagnosis but I just need a little insight and suggestions so I can pass this onto my friends.

I have 2 friends (sisters) whose brother is gay. He was always a happy person, and was a neat freak. He would help people when they needed it. He managed to hide it from his parents and they are no longer here. He never told his sisters he was gay but when they were in their early 50's they found out. They were shocked but never said a word to him and never treated him any differently. I feel that he knows that they know.

The problem is about 4/5 years ago everything changed. His house became so dirty that the sisters couldn't stand being in it. (they are all neat freaks) They begged him to tell them what was wrong. he said nothing was wrong. They did everything including calling the police who took him to a psych unit where they kept him for 3 days and released him. My friend isn't sure if he is still angry about that or not because he hardly talks to them. The only thing he has ever said to one of the sisters, and he yelled it at her, was that he had ED. He is 66 years old. Recently he went to a restaurant to eat and the owner called one of the sisters and told her that he smelled like shit and if he came in like that again they were going to tell him he had to leave. (small town, everyone knows everyone)

They are beside themselves, don't know what, if anything, they can do.

do gay men not use Viagra? do you think it was the end of the world for him because he has ED? is he just suffering from late in life mental issues?

do you have any insight to any of this? any guesses. She asked me to help her to understand what is wrong with him. I usually have some insight into problems but I am at a loss on this as I am female and straight. I have no answers but thought maybe you had something I could pass onto her. He was always such a nice guy. : (

thanks for any help.

Train Passenger Drags Man Having A Seizure Onto Platform and Leaves Him There So He Won't Be Delayed

He's a Datalounger, isn't he?

A white man in California is being accused of dragging a black man suffering from a seizure off of a train so that he could get home quickly, reported ABC 7 News.

In a video recorded by another passenger, the businessman is seen dragging the man — who appeared to be unconscious — onto the platform then pulling up his pants before reentering the train car.

“So this dude is passed out on the train and this motherf*cking white boy is doing the motherf*cking most,” the man said in the video. “This motherf*cker just yanked him off the f*cking train so he won’t have to stop and miss his f*cking ride.”

According to the witness, none of the other passengers complained about having to wait for the paramedics.

“That’s that bullsh*it white people do because y’all feel y’all can get away it,” the man filming the incident added.

Later in the video, the white passenger is seen trying to help the man he just dragged onto the platform.

“Don’t try and act like you give a f*ck now. You the one who dragged him out here,” the witness said.

Rear Entry: Your Favorite Sexual Position

As a total forever TOP , I prefer the rear entry body totally on top of the bottom position. I like this position most because it features the most body contact, and reinforces the total top, total bottom hot dynamic of domination-submission, penetrator-penetrated. Our bodies literally meld together in this position, instead of the more limited penis-booty contact other positions feature. The bottom really gives himself over to the top, and the top really devours and penetrates his top, from head to toe. None of this just my dick is on/in your body crap. You have to really trust and like each other for this position. The only negative is a lack of face to face contact and front-facing kissing, but a good top will lick and kiss the neck and face of his bottom in this position. It is beautiful to see porn that features this position between dudes, but for some reason, male porn doesn't feature much of this hot position. It is much more popular in heterosexual porn. My second favorite position: face-to-face missionary.

Netflix's 'Voltron: Legendary Defender' confirms gay relationship for Shiro

[quote]At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, showrunner Lauren Montgomery revealed that main character Shiro will have a "significant other" called Adam in the upcoming season seven.

[quote]Fellow showrunner Joaquim Dos Santos said that "it's something that's been part of his character from the get-go", adding that the reveal was delayed due to them shifting around how they revealed character backstories, and the decision to not kill off Shiro.

[quote]When asked by a fan if Shiro and Adam identified as gay or bisexual, Dos Santos said: "They're in a relationship."

[quote]Montgomery added: "I think the important thing is maybe allow the fans to see what they want to see. We don't want to put anyone into a corner where it's like - So other people feel like they're not represented."

[quote]Shiro's voice actor Josh Keaton (Hercules, Metal Gear Solid 3, various Spider-Man stuff) tweeted that he was "overwhelmed by the amazingly positive response, and both honored and proud to be a part of something so important".

Great, Obscure Older Movies More People Should (Actually) Watch

I’d love recommendations for movies that are worth people’s time but not watched by most people for various reasons. Entertaining, innovative, thoughtful movies.

Here is one example: Metropolis. I learned about it in a film class as a German expressionist film. We had to watch The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari for the class and after that I thought, nope, that was enough for me. I kept Metropolis in mind as a “homework assignment,” but the idea of watching a 1920s silent foreign expressionist movie meant it was probably never going to happen. One day about five years ago, I happened upon it and I thought I’d turn it on for a few minutes. To my great surprise, the visuals and the story are incredibly compelling and endlessly surprising, and it became a favorite. I never would have expected that. I tell other people to watch it, but not one of those people has watched it because...yes, it’s a silent, black and white German expressionist sci-fi fantasy.

Caligari, Citizen Kane, etc. are good technical “homework” movies, but what are some other truly entertaining *and* intelligent older movies you’d recommend as must-watches?

Educated But Stupid Homos & Lesbians

Specifically Jonathan Jackson's sister Candice Jackson, a lesbian lawyer and member of Donald Trump's administration. The last paragraph below is very telling. How can a well educated dyke by so fucking dumb?

From her Wikipedia page

In April 2017, Betsy DeVos, President Donald Trump's new United States Secretary of Education, named Jackson Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Department's Office for Civil Rights, where she will be acting Assistant Secretary while that higher, Senate-confirmed appointment remains vacant.

In June 2017, Jackson issued a memo that reduced investigators' inquiries over systemic issues and stopped requiring regional offices to centrally report complaints on disproportionate minority discipline or campus sexual assault.

Jackson has been critical of the prior administration's attempts to address rape culture on college campuses. She has said those accused of rape on college campuses have not been treated fairly. On July 13, 2017, Jackson arranged for DeVos to meet students accused of sexual assault, in addition to those who survived assault, and professional advocates for both groups.

In July 2017, Jackson said in an interview that alcohol or the end of relationships are the cause of "90%" of campus sexual-assault claims leading to Title IX investigations. The comment prompted the Washington Post editorial board to call for Jackson's resignation, saying that she had promoted sexual-assault myths and that "someone who doesn't think sexual assault on campus is a real problem in the first place is not qualified to do that sorting." Following an outcry, Jackson apologized, called her comment "flippant" and stating that "All sexual harassment and sexual assault must be taken seriously."

Jackson is a lesbian and as of 2017 had been married to her wife for over a decade; she is a mother of twins. She has praised President Trump for his stances on gay rights as the "first Republican nominee in history to be openly inclusive of the LGBT community. Trump is expanding this party."

Didn't he start off the Jake Gyllenhaal and Austin rumors, with have now been debunked since both actors are obviously straight. Was that the reason he dropped out of the industry?

NON-Frau/DH perfumes & colognes

I’m just a young les looking to buy a new scent for 2018, but I’m totally put-off by the nasty shit all the breeders around me seem to bathe in. It seems like it’s always sugary antiseptic smells on the women and foul sour Lynx-sequels rubbish on the men, no matter the age or the status. I would love wearing perfume that smells fresh but enticing, telegraphing that I am both gay and cool. Is there such a scent?

If anyone wants to rec me something personally, the best ingredients for my chemistry are sandal, green herbs (esp. garden plants like mint), mosses, softwoods, amber, vanilla, basic musk. I cannot wear most white flowers (except honeysuckle), cocoa, Indian/Asian spices (except coriander), berries. Mixed results with aldehydes, benzoin, nuts, patchouli, red flowers (esp. carnations), civet, citrus, and climbing flowers.

Man falls in Anish Kapoor's hole

A visitor to the Anish Kapoor exhibition at the Serralves museum in Porto was hospitalised this week after falling inside one of the British artist’s installations, which features a 2.5-metre-deep hole. It is not clear whether he fell into the hole or beside it.

A spokesman for the museum says that the “visitor is OK [and] almost ready to return home”. He added that “security protocol was followed” and there are warning signs as well as a member of gallery staff inside the installation. It has been temporarily closed while the institution assesses what happened but it hopes to reopen it “in a few days”. According to the Público newspaper, the injured man is Italian and around 60 years old.

‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Star Max Minghella Says He Has ‘a Very Cynical View’ of His Gender

Max Minghella is speaking out in an interview with Glamour, out now.

Here's what the 32-year-old The Handmaid's Tale star had to say...

On his character Nick being guilty until proven innocent: “I mean, I feel all men are guilty until proven innocent, in general. Maybe that has to do with the fact that women have been subjugated for so long, or that men can be gross in a way woman rarely are. Having a been a man for 32 years, I’ve always had a very cynical view of my gender. I’m relieved the rest of the world is now sharing it.”

On being a "pop culture whore": “It’s completely true. I’m obsessed with pop culture. I really am. I’m not, like, a great intellectual. I’m a Top 40 guy, I’m really into Riverdale. I love that it’s so clean and pop-y on the surface with something so sinister underneath.”

On best friend, Jamie Bell, who is married to Max's ex-girlfriend Kate Mara: “Nobody’s ever asked me about that. I will tell you this: It’s a beautiful part of my life. I see them every single morning, and Jamie’s son is my godson. I can understand why the optics might be very confusing, but it’s not a complicated thing for us.”

How Can I Cure My White Guilt?

The thing about privilege is that it can be used for good.

Dear Sugars,

I’m riddled with shame. White shame. This isn’t helpful to me or to anyone, especially people of color. I feel like there is no “me” outside of my white/upper middle class/cisgender identity. I feel like my literal existence hurts people, like I’m always taking up space that should belong to someone else.

I consider myself an ally. I research proper etiquette, read writers of color, vote in a way that will not harm P.O.C. (and other vulnerable people). I engage in conversations about privilege with other white people. I take courses that will further educate me. I donated to Black Lives Matter. Yet I fear that nothing is enough. Part of my fear comes from the fact that privilege is invisible to itself. What if I’m doing or saying insensitive things without realizing it?

Another part of it is that I’m currently immersed in the whitest environment I’ve ever been in. My family has lived in the same apartment in East Harlem for four generations. Every school I attended, elementary through high school, was minority white, but I’m now attending an elite private college that is 75 percent white. I know who I am, but I realize how people perceive me and this perception feels unfair.

I don’t talk about my feelings because it’s hard to justify doing so while people of color are dying due to systemic racism and making this conversation about me would be again centering whiteness. Yet bottling it up makes me feel an existential anger that I have a hard time channeling since I don’t know my place. Instead of harnessing my privilege for greater good, I’m curled up in a ball of shame. How can I be more than my heritage?

Grrrrrr-BEARS-Grrrrrr

In male gay culture, a bear is often a larger, hairier man who projects an image of rugged masculinity. Bears are one of many LGBT communities with events, codes, and a culture-specific identity. However, in San Francisco in the 1970s any hairy man of whatever shape was referred to as a 'bear' until the term was appropriated by larger men and other words had to be found to describe hairy other-shaped men such as otter (slim) or wolf (medium-build).

Jack Fritscher notes that bears celebrate "secondary sexual characteristics of the male: facial hair, body hair, proportional size, baldness". Over the years, bear culture has subdivided itself. Many claim discrimination has increased within the bear community, as some men who self-identify as "bears" or "musclebears" do not welcome higher-bodyfat men (see chub) at their events. A common criticism of the bear community is that some self-described bears tend to exclude men who do not fit their standards of a "real bear". Fat (or lack of it) is seen by some as a political issue, some of whom see their overweight condition as a form of self-acceptance. Some also note a lack of racial diversity in the bear community, perceiving hirsuteness to be a standard of physical attractiveness that genetically favors white men aesthetically, socially and sexually among bears.

Why did Hollywood have to become obsessed with being sympathetic to The Anti-Hero?

I watched 2004's "Spider Man 2" for the first time in a very, long time the other day and was surprised by how bleak and pessimistic Hollywood has gotten since then.

Sunny, colorful, earnestly respectful of the goodness and struggles of character of protagonist Peter Parker, it got me thinking about how generally more willing Hollywood was in the recent past to still sell being "the good guy", no matter how beaten down, as the goal worth striving for. Now, it seems like there aren't enough cynical bad guys out there for them to glorify and enough dystopias to re-create.

Do you think Hollywood should trend back towards the optimism? Or are you glad for today's pessimism and pro anti-hero trends in theaters?

Elvis Was the King of Treating Women Like Shit and Luring 14-Year-Olds into Bed

In addition to nabbing the title of "the King of Rock and Roll" with songs like "Can't Help Falling in Love" and "He Touched Me," Elvis Presley stole many hearts. But a closer look at his life beyond the music and swinging hips reveals that he was just as much the king of exploiting teenagers for sex and treating women like shit.

I almost died in a grease fire

I was cooking tonight, and the recipe called for six strips of bacon to crumble in it. The way I do this is baking it on a cookie sheet. Since I was doubling the recipe for a buffet tomorrow night, I just put all the strips from the package in there (about 15)

The good thing about this method is you don't have to turn the bacon or really watch it closely, and your hands and stovetop are free for other tasks. The bad thing is the sheet fills with SEARING BACON GREASE which you must pour off halfway through, lest the entire oven explode in an enormous fireball.

Or at least, after being told I should "die in a grease fire" repeatedly here, that's what I imagined happening.

I was so nervous pouring of the grease, sure you were all going to get your wish!

Gay Subtext in The Little Mermaid, From Hans Christian Andersen’s Original to Disney’s Adaptation

Hans Christian Andersen’s tragic short story, “The Little Mermaid,” seems to be a metaphorical reflection of a doomed romance that unfolded in the author’s own life. The short story, which was published in 1836, lines up with a series of love letters that Andersen wrote in the mid-1830s to a young Duke named Edvard Collin. Many historians have concluded that the two men were engaged in a romance, rather than just a platonic friendship; their adoring correspondence in letters lends credence to this interpretation.

Much like the Prince with whom the Little Mermaid falls in love, Edvard Collin also faced pressure from his family to marry a princess. Anyone who has read Andersen’s original short story remembers the heart-wrenching conclusion, in which the Prince chooses to marry a princess rather than the mermaid.

The fact that “The Little Mermaid” revolves around the silence of its heroine speaks to the political situation of the era. In some ways, the 1830s in Europe marked an “enlightenment” period for gay activism; although it was still not publicly acceptable (or legal) to pursue a same-sex romance, private romances were another matter. Ariel’s silence serves as a parallel for Andersen’s own situation; he had to keep his mouth shut about his own feelings, even though every moment must have felt like walking on knives.

Unlike the heroine of the short story, Andersen does not turn into sea foam after Collin got married to someone else. Instead, Andersen and Collin remained friends (or perhaps more) for decades afterwards … and, presumably, Andersen (like Ariel) had to remain silent in public about his feelings throughout that entire time.

When Disney chose to adapt Andersen’s short story into an animated film in 1989, did they know about this historical context? Did anyone working on this film know that they were, essentially, adapting a classic queer fairy tale? It’s entirely possible that Disney selected Andersen’s love story with no knowledge of its context, but it’s possible that some of the people on the creative team had a different interpretation of “The Little Mermaid.” In a piece for the Atlantic titled “It’s Not Just Frozen: Most Disney Movies Are Pro-Gay,” Akash Nikolas writes,

[quote]One of the most poignant examples of the company’s tolerant atmosphere is the case of lyricist Howard Ashman, who was openly gay and died of AIDS in 1991. Not only did Ashman write songs for The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, he was also closely involved in those films’ productions, casting actors and holding story meetings with animators. At the end of Beauty and the Beast, Disney acknowledged his contributions with this tribute: “To our friend Howard Ashman who gave a mermaid her voice and a beast his soul, we will be forever grateful.”

[quote]But Ashman’s story also offers an example of how the substance of Disney’s films reflect an interest in LGBT peoples’ struggles. Ashman worked on Beauty and the Beast while suffering through the worst (and final) phases of his illness, and composer Alan Menken called the film Ashman’s “personal story.” The result is a movie that can be viewed as an allegory: Shunned from society, his body hideously transformed, and his life wilting away like the enchanted rose, the Beast is a figure of degenerative disease. Belle’s love and the ultimate breaking of the curse is the fantasy cure that Ashman was denied.

In addition to providing the Beast with a happy ending, Ashman also “gave a mermaid her voice” (and an equally happy ending), as the quote from Disney states. It seems fair to assume that Ashman might have aided in the creation of The Little Mermaid in much the same way that he did in Beauty and the Beast, by giving its heroes the happy ending that they deserve – a happy ending that would never have been possible for Hans Christian Andersen in 1836, but which might have been worth dreaming about in 1989.

Bottoms wearing high heels

I've got a quandary, you guys. You see, I'm a strict bottom in his 50s, happily married to my husbear of two decades. I have a decidedly femmy wardrobe, while my husbear, who I can assure you is built like a sturdy shit brickhouse, is masc as hell. he wears unwashed leather jeans, singlets, and cowboy boots. I am decidedly more fey. I tend to favor spandex, short shorts, board shorts, midriff baring vests and thongs. Recently, I've been thinking about my footwear. I always used to be a flipflops and birkenstocks kind of guy, until I discovered that high heels did wonders for my bubble butt, which is unfortunately not as wide or as firm as it was in my youth when I was still a femmy chub powerbottoming for str8 or masc tops. Now my husbear is convinced that high heels are gross and unmasculine. He's ashamed to be seen outside with me when I wear hotpants and high heels. I think he may have a great deal of internalized homophobia he needs to deal with before he an accept how fucking fabulous I look. W

What does the DL say - should bottoms wear thongs and high heels, or is that borderline tranny?

Elon Musk / Tesla Deathwatch

Elon Musk built Tesla Motors by turning Tesla into a great story. This story — one that’s partly about the allure of “disrupting” the auto industry, partly about building a modern-day muscle car, and partly about an eco-friendly mission to save the world — has convinced investors to propel his vision with billions of dollars in cash.

To some extent, every entrepreneur is a storyteller, their venture a vehicle to an imagined future, but Musk is in a class of his own. Whether he’s talking about building electric cars, tunneling under the streets of Los Angeles, or colonizing Mars, his stories matter more than others. They reshape markets.

In the end, however, entrepreneurship can’t be pure fiction. The fiction must serve as a prelude to the creation of a new company that adheres to a simple, fundamental rule: Revenues must be higher than costs, or costs must be financed. Facts matter.

...

If Tesla proves to be a bubble company, not only will many investors and potential customers be left stranded, but we will have witnessed a remarkable case study in the limits of entrepreneurial yarn spinning. Today Musk thinks the media is his enemy, but he could never have built Tesla Motors without it. We should always be wary of entrepreneurs selling utopia — even more so today, when an expanded, ever-present media fuels American capitalism. Musk is mad that the media has stopped presenting his stories as nonfiction

When it comes to Tesla, the facts are not on Musk’s side. Musk’s latest of many problems is Tesla Motors’ inability to ramp up production on the long-anticipated Model 3, which he had portrayed as a $35,000 electric car for the masses — an electric Model T of sorts. Indeed, based on the 400,000-plus deposits that consumers placed for Model 3s in 2016, two full years ago, demand for a more affordable, high-quality, long-range Tesla vehicle exists.

If Musk could counter the latest round of negative stories with facts, he wouldn’t be going after the messengers in the media

Here’s the dynamic that explains Musk’s Twitter outburst: Tesla is clearly struggling to reach production levels that will justify its valuation. Musk has no facts with which to counter the media reports, and it is illegal for him to lie about these numbers. (Hype is one thing; lying to investors is another.) His Orwellian solution is to convince Tesla fans that what they are reading is not true. The stakes are high. Tesla’s $1 billion-per-quarter burn rate makes it very likely that the company will need to raise a couple billion dollars in the fourth quarter of this year.

Musk literally cannot afford for investors to believe a negative storyline. Only his optimistic, visionary narrative will convince potential investors that Tesla is a good bet, rather than a bubble preparing to pop.

...

Musk is caught between a rock and a hard place. He is struggling to produce a mass-market car. If he cannot do it, it means Tesla should be valued closer to Porsche than to Ford, and the stock price should fall. But if the stock price falls, he won’t be able to raise money, Tesla will run out of cash, and the dream of a mass-market Tesla will be dead (or at least it will not be fulfilled by an independent company controlled by Musk). Tesla needs the profits produced by luxury models to forestall that outcome, but that’s not a long-term solution to his basic problem.

Given this set of facts, Musk’s only hope is “to pound the table and yell like hell” to try to convince investors to ignore reality — and focus on his storyline.

Singer Max Bemis comes out as “bi-ish” or “a straight guy who can also like boys”

Max Bemis, lead singer of the rock band Say Anything, just came out in an emotional nine-page letter to fans.

In the missive, Bemis opens up about his mental health struggles and his sexuality, which he describes as “bi-ish or queer or a straight guy who can also like boys.”

“I always talked or joked about it with my friends and found it to be blatantly clear I was,” he writes. “I was bullied for it and called a ‘f*g’ (without irony). This is, sadly, common.”

The 34-year-old rock-and-roller continues, “I’m not special. I even went so far as to tell people I was also attracted to guys repeatedly. They chalked it up to my bipolar sh*t, which was hurtful.”

Bemis describes most of his queer experiences as “limited and remain mostly emotional” and says he’s often felt people don’t take his sexuality seriously because he’s married to a woman.

“So yeah, I’m a queer, Jewish, Christian skeptic pseudo-anarchist with a belief in metaphysics and the application of ‘magical’ stuff. Woof,” he writes

Bemis also talked about Say Anything’s forthcoming album, Oliver Appropriate, which he says is “a critique of ‘new age masculinity” and which will be the band’s final album… probably.

“There will be no full U.S. tour to support the record or in the near future. I am done being a touring musician as my main profession,” Bemis writes. “Say Anything is retiring in the sense that Jay-Z did. It’s not an indefinite hiatus or a breakup because that’s impossible.”

Paul Rudd, Steve Coogan to Play Married Couple in "An Ideal Home"

Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan will star in dramedy An Ideal Home, directed by Andrew Fleming.

Rudd and Coogan, who previously worked together on 2011's Our Idiot Brother, will star as a troubled married couple with an extravagant life. Coogan plays a celebrity while Rudd is his more hesitant partner and sidekick. But when the grandson that Coogan's character never knew he had shows up at their home with nowhere else to go, the couple reluctantly decide to take him in.

Fleming wrote the script for An Ideal Home, which Remstar Studios and National Bank of Canada are co-financing. Fortitude International is selling in Berlin, and UTA Independent Film Group is handling domestic rights.

Gabriella Tana, Maria Theresa Arida, Maxime Remillard and Aaron Ryder are producing while Clark Peterson and Lisa Wolofsky will executive produce.

"Comedy stalwarts Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan are reuniting on the big screen as a squabbling married couple in Andrew’s endearing and hilarious script about modern family and we are delighted to present this charming film to buyers at EFM," said Fortitude’s Nadine De Barros.

Rudd recently starred in and co-wrote Marvel's latest superhero film. Ant-Man, which earned more than $500 million worldwide and has a sequel in the works for 2018. He'll reprise the character in Captain America: Civil War, which opens in theaters in the U.S. in May. He'll next work on Duncan Jones’ Mute and is repped by UTA, Lighthouse Management & Media and Jackoway Tyerman.

Coogan received two Oscar nominations for best film and best adapted screenplay for Philomena, which he also starred in. Next he'll be seen in The Dinner with Richard Gere, which is selling in Berlin, and Warren Beatty’s new untitled film. He’s repped by CAA and Independent Talent Group.

The Sweeney Sisters

The Sweeney Sisters were the funniest characters on "Saturday Night Live," and worthy of a movie as any other cast members.

Nora Dunn on Jan Hooks: "It was Jan Hooks who came up with the idea for The Sweeney Sisters. On the spot while we were shooting a commercial parody for Saturday Night Live. It came like a minor explosion, as most of her ideas did, and she delivered the concept and our names in a matter of seconds. Then she started belting out medleys of classic swing songs. There was no way I could keep up with her. She was a seasoned improvisor who never credited herself as a writer and at the heart of her matter she was a genuine actress."

"I’m not ready to accept that Jan died, at 57. That’s not fair. But neither is life. It’s sorrowful, and there isn’t one comedian worth her weight in salt if she doesn’t understand that. "

"She and I spent an evening with George Harrison in Lorne’s office one night, drinking wine and playing records and listening to one of the Beatles, who was engaging and prolific, I remember her saying afterwards, “Did that really happen?” And I hear myself saying that now, as I read this piece. Did it? "

Omarosa Claims Melania Trump Can't Wait to Divorce the President: She's 'Counting Every Minute'

“Trumpworld intimates” often talked about the possibility that Trump had helped his wife, a former model, secure an Einstein (EB-1) visa. They questioned if Mrs. Trump had the “extraordinary ability” required to obtain such a visa and suggested that her husband used his wide network of connections to “secure or expedite it,” according to the book. Manigault Newman does not name any of these “Trumpworld intimates.”

In her book, Manigault Newman suggests that one of the reasons why Mrs. Trump stays in her marriage is for fear that Trump might find a way to “invalidate” the visa if she left him.

“Since Donald is fully aware of however she acquired her permanent citizenship, he could, if there were anything fishy around it, expose the methods and somehow invalidate it,” Manigault Newman writes. “He is a vindictive man, and I would not put anything past him.”
