  2. apparently, animals are more important to that bastard morrissey than gay people.

    he refused to come to canada two years ago because of killing of sea animals BUT where they murder gay men he goes?

    unless, negotiations means stopping the murders of gays, i don't know what he is doing there.

  3. that person in malalysia should be joyous considering the apathy and yawn that passes for anything standing remotely as a queer lexicon these days. i have never in my life seen something as malnourished, as what some accept as reaching potential whereas it's merely a stick figure such as tumble weed is the perfect imagery for the reality of paltry fiction posing as reality -- such as deplorable scripting and speech writing are.

    thank you.

  4. This site provides a detailed account on the history of gay bars in New York City, and many of the bars were controlled by organized crime (particularly the Genovese and Gambino crime families):

  5. Shia is so hot. Who cares if he smokes or not? Tho' I hate kissing guys who do. But if you're drunk or messed up enough, even that you don't care about ;)

  6. I am licensed by the State of California to practice psychotherapy. It is my understanding that Dr. Phil simply showed up unannounced at Britney Spear's hospital room without having been asked to be there by friends/family/managers/etc...If that is the case then his actions are, at the very least, ethically questionable. I'm hoping his licensing board takes notice of this and takes appropriate steps in the matter. What a hack.

  7. Ack. ACK! Out! Out damn star screen swipe. Andy, I am begging you once again, please warn us that you are linking to PITNB. That blog always screws up my computer. I am forced to exit and reboot.

  8. These anti-smoking guys need to let it go, big deal if someone uses a legal product, its not as if he was going to date you or care what you think. The Puritans have made this country more boring than it was in 1908.

    So, puff on Shia, still as hot looking as always, if not more so!

  9. Rudy, all you have to do is hover your mouse over the links before you click them... the URLs will appear in the Status Bar at the bottom of your browser. And if it's (or any other site you don't want to visit), then don't click it.

    Honestly, you should be doing this anyways. If you're just randomly clicking links on blogs, you're opening your computer up to any number of potential hazards.

  10. sans the cigs SHIA is HOT! Though the straightening of the hair takes away a bit. He should let the natural kink curlyness reign.

  11. As a paparazzi member, that creep knows all too well how much people are willing to pay for first-hand accounts of major celebrities. I'm sure his tell-all will earn him millions, and be soon forthcoming. Perhaps that is why his WIFE doesn't mind what is happening.

  12. No better way to confirm that one is, indeed, a drama queen than by making a legal case out of it.

  13. You can set your browser up to block PITNB or any other site, so that if you click on the link nothing will happen.

  14. Well said Lia!

  15. Just a footnote on the murder of the man in Australia. He did not start a restaurant franchise in WA, but a franchise of butcher stores focusing on chicken products. More information is available at:
