Ziroroad.jpg Star Wars: Clone Wars gay-coded character Ziro the Hutt is asexual. Director: Ziro, Jabba’s uncle, originally spoke in Hutt-ese, like Jabba and then he had a different sluggish voice just like Jabba, and then George one day was watching it and said ‘I want him to sound like Truman Capote.’ He actually said that and we were like ‘Wow!’…He’s of questionable [sexuality] at least as a slug. They tell me that these slugs can be either male or female depending. That’s something I guess that slugs and snails do. I wasn’t aware of that but I have continuity experts that tell me these things and I’m like. I guess Jabba is [his son’s] mother AND father from a certain point of view. It’s interesting.”

Daddy!” when they were reunited and was ‘kissing me and everybody.’ Glazer’s ex-partner, Eric Hyett, was not immediately arrested.

road.jpg Court reinstates dismissed discrimination case by former employee of Merrill Lynch over supervisor’s “stupid fag” slur: “On the hostile workplace claim, the appeals court said Taylor’s holding — that a single comment may be severe enough to create a hostile workplace — applies regardless of who made the comment. ‘The fact that it was made by plaintiff’s immediate supervisor should be enough because, as Taylor itself noted, a supervisor is someone who should be protecting the employee from such conduct in the workplace,’ they wrote. They noted that even before the ‘stupid fag’ remark was allegedly made, Wonder had been verbally critical of Kwiatkowski’s performance. ‘At the very least, plaintiff would have had genuine reason to question Wonder every time she criticized his work and evaluated his performance, and to wonder whether the criticism was valid or instead was generated by her bias against gay men,’ they observed.”

road.jpg Obesity linked to childhood ear infections: “Preliminary results from the University of Florida in Gainesville suggest that severe ear infections damage a nerve that transmits signals from the tongue to the brain, which then changes the patient’s perception of tasteso that they prefer fatty foods. A team led by Linda Bartoshuk noticed the link by questioning 1300 subjects – 245 of whom had a history of ear infections – on their medical history, height, weight and taste perception. Of those who had had ear infections, those over 30 had higher body mass indices, with proportionally twice as many obese subjects.

    “fuck you” or fucking pointless? While the Obama campaign deserves huge credit for having used the Net successfully in more ways than any previous campaign I’m beginning to fear that those who “got it” don’t get now that the current neck-and-neck race with a Troglodyte of technology [not to mention every other area] suggests that the market for selling Obama over the Net has been saturated and that most every voter who could have been seduced by Internet/YouTube/blogging bells and whistles is already in the bag.

    Announce O’s Veep pick by e-mail blast/IM? Big fucking whoop! And now a 41-page PDF to combat a hard copy NY Times best-selling book which is itself apparently a compilation of Net viral marketed lies—MORE THAN A YEAR after that virus began to spread??? Raise your hand if you think that the majority of undecideds or people who have already closed the polls gap for McCain are heavy PDF document readers or, having become susceptible to lies and distortions virally marketed to them through blogs/sites they or their friends read, or have had chain e-mailed TO them are going to take the initiative now to GO to the Obama site for “the truth” when they’re already expecting to see nothing but propaganda? Mr. 21st Century seems to have fallen into the trap of an ancient cliche: wasting time preaching to the choir.

    New School may have played a significant role in getting Obama the nomination but it seems clearer every day that winning the election is going to require mastering Old School stuff: saturation TV, radio, print ads, interviews that both rebut McShames’ smears of Obama and also reshape McShame negatively in voters’ minds.

    The U.S.S. Obama Campaign is dead in the water. Cyber oars aren’t going to get it moving again.

    “They tell me that these slugs can be either male or female depending.”

    Well, that’s not quite the right way to put it. Snails (& slugs, which are simply snails lacking shells) are BOTH male and female at the same time. They’re hermaphrodites. When they mate, they trade sperm, each giving sperm to the other and then each maturing their own eggs from the sperm received.

    I love Cho.

    I keep seeing the August 22nd or so listed as the premiere of her show on VH1, but when I looked it up on Tivo, they’re showing it on the 18th (I believe) on Logo. FYI.

    I’m so stoked.
