  1. Rufus Wainwright is the worst singer ever. And Jake looks a bit drunk, but their kiss is cool. Toothy Tile needs to come out of the fuckin' closet already.

  2. I say, whack it off (and not for the straight guy video). As for that, hmm, looks interesting to say the least.

  3. 10 Steps reminds me of a very old joke.

    Q: What's the difference between a straight guy and a gay guy?

    A: 5 beers

  4. Jake should keep his day job.

  5. I'm really sorry to burst your bubble, OH YEA!, but Jake isn't gay (I know, I hate it, too!). About three years ago, I was living at Chateau Marmont. As I was coming down a seldom-used staircase at the end of a long hallway off the lobby I happened upon Jake and Kirsten Dunst cuddling in the corner. They were completely goo-goo eyed for each other. It was not the sort of staged cuddling a celebrity might do for the benefit of their career/the paparazzi...they were completely out of sight of the lobby and cameras are banned at 'The Chateau' (even for guests). It was, pretty clearly, a more or less private moment.

    Of course, what it means for me is that I was close enough to Jake Gyllenhaal to touch him at a moment in which he probably had a hard-on.

  6. Whatever, to the critics here. Jake looked like he was having a great time onstage and so did Rufus and the audience. Love that Jake just lives his life. Good for him! I am a fan of both J & R.

  7. Btw, Andy that Rufus concert/Jake onstage was in NYC not San Fransisco.

  8. I'm so sick of this idea that sexuality is fluid (I won't speak for women because I'm not one). In regards to men, it's not. I've been out for almost 30 years and I've never once met an out urban gay man who considered sleeping with a woman again. It's just an urban homophobic myth. When are we going to stop hating ourselves? I take my queue from my straight brothers out there. They don't consider having gay sex if the opportunity arises or if they are lonely or bored or even drunk. They just jerk off to internet porn like the rest of us. Race You to the Bottom will not be in my queue on Netflix in this lifetime. I prefer my men gay and proud of it.

  9. I think every RepubliCON ought to be castrated, so let Vitter's wife have at him. The world would be a better place if she did it...

  10. Philip: Geez, why are you so threatened by fluid sexuality? Just cuz you never met one doesn't mean it doesn't exist. And positing that it does exist isn't homophobic. Save the indignation for something that matters.

  11. to oh yea -- seriously man, say what you will about rufus, but he is hardly a bad singer...not all of his songs work, but vocally he's one of the best out there...i'm curious as to who you do like if you think he's the worst...as for gyllenhaal...who cares if he's gay or straight? he's an actor, and a pretty good one...donnie darko rules, and even if he is gay, he ain't gonna sleep with you so get a life already...

  14. Robert, until there are 100% equal rights in this country for gays and lesbians, people have to understand that most men, gay or straight do not vacillate back and forth between the genders.

    Until then, all this does is add fuel to fire. Why bother giving them equal rights when they can be straight if they really want to?

    Posted by: Philip | Jul 16, 2007 6:07:23 PM

  15. and by the way, since when does stating a passionate opinion about a topic make someone threatened? Stick to the facts and stop making your replies personal.

    Posted by: Philip | Jul 16, 2007 6:10:14 PM

  16. PeterParker: Thanks mate. How are things your way? =)

    Philip: Your comment should be directed at PistolPetey, not Robert.

  17. Victoria...LOVE. HER.

  18. Thought the Rufus piece was really nice.
    When he was in the UK a few weeks ago he was caught in the street in Brighton by one of the DJs of my fav. radio show who asked him to record a message for the show, he agreed and it is a great piece of rough cut recording. The nice bit is that the DJs on the show are both a pair of straight friends who are two of the up and coming comics in the UK, one of whom is a big fan of Rufus, so his mate grabbed the chance to get a message for him from his hero when he saw him in the street. It was a lovely piece of radio and spoke volumes about Mr Wainright, the nature of the friendship between the two DJs and broadcasting on the BBC - although they also did a quite strange Brokeback version of their relationship involving robots which Andy might find entertaining..
    I recomend the show - Russell Howard on 6music BBC Sundays 10-1 BST (I don't work for the BBC in case you were wondering!)

  19. I thought the video called "Race You to the Bottom" was somewhat of an insult to gay men. I realize it's a satire, but in a way, it seems disillusioning. Perhaps the thing that is most upsetting is that straight male jocks are still considered a "prize" for which gay men must continue to embarass themselves and lower their standards of dignity.

  20. Straight jocks are hot but I agree that chasing after them is pretty pathetic unless you truly have the goods to snare one or two of them.

    I'll take a bisexual who's decided that he likes man on man action to a closeted "straight" guy who enjoys being a tease.

  21. Thanks Cory. Sorry about that mix-up Robert. My comments were meant for PistolPetey.

    Posted by: Philip | Jul 17, 2007 3:43:08 PM

  22. What was Jake on? Couldn't understand a f'n thing he said. Looked totally drunk and retarded. And since when does flirting with Kirsten Dunst make you straight or gay? All actors are basically bisexual so everyone just needs to quit trying to pigeon-hole them.

    Oh, and bagging a straight guy is not that hard, nor is it rarely worth it. At 43, I've met hundreds of gay and bi guys who've been hotter and better sex partners. Majority of straight guys seem totally ignorant on the subject of what constitutes good sex. I believe that's why they claim to be "totally straight". Based solely on my personal experience of course.;)

  23. Joe in the OC, no it wasn't totally clear what Jake was saying but if you know the song "Between My Legs" the part Jake did was supposed to be spoken word. He didn't seem drunk or retarded to me. Just like someone having fun. Is that not allowed? Guess it is easier to pass judgement and call someone a retard, that's mature.

    And he did more than flirt with Kristen Dunst, they lived together. He may be gay or bi now but I do think what he had with Kirsten was a long term relationship.
