I’d vote for the candidate who supports gay marriage but has no interest in attending a gay wedding. If I was transgender or transitioning I’d be really pissed that Bruce Jenner is about to become the most famous transgender or transitioning person. It would be sort of like Ryan Seacrest becoming the most well-known gay … Continue reading Monday meanderings
Just another reminder that the Clintons should never be trusted. Travolta told writer Josh Young that just before “Primary Colors” went before the cameras last April, the actor was in Washington to promote Scientology – a controversial belief Travolta and scores of other Hollywood types embrace. “The next day, I met with Clinton,” Travolta told … Continue reading Scientology’s presidential enabler
If you’re going to boycott Dolce & Gabanna for an opinion, even an ignorant one, shouldn’t you also boycott Tom Cruise, who knowingly benefits from slave labor and parrots the propaganda of a dangerous criminal enterprise? Think twice before paying money to see the new Mission: Impossible movie — it’s not much of a sacrifice, … Continue reading Boycott Tom Cruise
“You know, music is interesting. I grew up listening to classic rock and I’ll tell you sort of an odd story. My music tastes changed on 9/11. And it’s a very strange—I actually, intellectually, find this very curious, but on 9/11, I didn’t like how rock music responded. And country music collectively, the way they … Continue reading Ted Cruz waited until country music really sucked to become a fan
Twenty years from now, if someone asks you “Who was Larry King?” read them this tweet. I know billboards hurt the landscape but I like reading them… #itsmy2cents — Larry King (@kingsthings) March 23, 2015
James Franco remains the most narcissistic, and accommodated, of all celebs. For some reason 429 let “Straight James” interview his gay self, with predictably pretentious results. Straight James: Let’s get substantial: are you fucking gay or what? Gay James: Well, I like to think that I’m gay in my art and straight in my life. Although, I’m … Continue reading Enough already, James Franco
Alabama police, always keeping right-wing reactionaries down. The 24-year-old son of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore was arrested on drug possession charges on Sunday, but according to the younger Moore, the charges are just a political scheme to further attack his father over gay marriage. … “This is nothing more than a prime example of how … Continue reading Alabama cops, liberal media conspire to protect gay marriage
You know, the one that allegedly led to the shooting of two Ferguson cops. First and foremost, we are a nation built on the rule of law. And so we need to accept that this decision was the grand jury’s to make. There are Americans who agree with it, and there are Americans who are … Continue reading Here’s the speech the far right calls incendiary
This is a cover of “Redemption Song” by Michael McDonald. No joke.
Ever since starting this blog 10 years ago (time flies when you have few readers) I’ve been railing against the city’s stubborn refusal to synchronize its traffic signals, something it last did roughly 40 years ago. But it appears our long municipal nightmare is over, assuming next Tuesday’s $250 million infrastructure bond referendum is approved … Continue reading Is Atlanta about to get less clusterfucky?
Why are you such huge starfuckers? All that self-esteem you were taught to have and this is the result? It’s not flattering.
It’ll be a choice between a wingnut to be named later or a seasoned grifter — a soap opera with no redeemable characters and a predictable plot that’ll leave us hankering for a savior unlikely to emerge. But if I was the kind of person who could wage a credible third party candidacy, I’d place … Continue reading 2016 is going to suck so hard
I’ve yet to see any convincing evidence of Kanye West’s alleged brilliance, a reputation that has held even after he married a Kardashian. On Monday the man who in 2013 said he “believed the world can be saved by design” was invited to speak at the Oxford Guild Business Society. After asking everyone to remain silent … Continue reading You can’t stop time and other deep ruminations from the black Chauncey Gardiner
After serving squid to the clapping seals at CPAC, Ted Cruz took questions from the biggest clapping seal of them all. Predictably, Sean Hannity went the fanboy route, asking Cruz how he managed to “bravely” survive criticism for helping to shut down the government in 2013? Hannity ended on a particularly obsequious note: “Why does Ted … Continue reading Question of the day
