This is sickening. It is completely reminiscent of when al-Qaeda blew up the Buddhas. It's revolting savagery.
Here's a charming email from Joe Tynan aka Michael John aka MJBricksBike@aol.com, a right-wing gay guy who thinks myself and various other bloggers are somehow elitist, and because we are not xenophobes (as he has proudly claimed to be), that means we are inviting terrorists into NYC, which he feels he owns by virtue of living here.
I'm calling the cops on his—ironically—terroristic threat, but thought I'd post it here, too.
Oh, he thinks I'm anti-Irish (I guess that means self-loathing in my case). Anti-Irish. What century is this???
If anyone knows him, let me know, and I'll add more of his personal data to the report. Thanks.
“Unless you can do what Madonna can do, shut up.”—Whoopi Goldberg (and most of the others on The View)
Only the youngster on the panel kinda-sorta slammed Madonna, albeit passive-aggressively. Her point is that Madonna's not being criticized for her age, she's being criticized for what she wears. At. Her. Age.
Out of the mouths of babes.
National Enquirer (March 9, 2015) soft-outs George Clooney with this leading cover line. Inside, the ex-lover who talks is female and the reference to the all-male parties is:
“George's boozy get-togethers with pals like Brad Pitt are legendary. Actor Danny DeVito seemed tipsy on The View in 2006, and blamed downing the Italian liqueur limoncello with George. And after polishing off a bottle of their tequila, Casamigos, with his pal and business partner Rande Gerber, George was so blasted that he slept in Rande's guest bedroom.”
Still, it's clear what NE was getting at.
This piece on avoiding prison rape is very well done, sober and intelligent, with no ins for unintentional humor. It's a serious issue. It bothers me that otherwise smart, compassionate people joke around about how people are going to get raped in prison like it's okay. It's not. Rape is cruel and unusual punishment, it's un-American and it should never happen in prison to anyone...
This guy's cute but what an idiot. Like some (mostly younger? because they've grown up in a world gripped by conspiracy theories?) others, he openly suggests Madonna's fall at the Brits was staged. I mean, you'd have to be a complete idiot to think that for one second upon viewing that tape. Madonna was forcefully dragged backwards off of three steps and fell on her ass in mid-sentence. There's no way she could have rehearsed that safely. It's obnoxious, but it's also incredibly stupid, to think such a thing because while one might understand being cynical in general, the fact that common sense can be thrown out the window is scary.
Meanwhile, this is incredibly creative and not unkind, a funny way to laugh off what happened. I think Madonna should use it on tour.
