    plus que ca change, plus que ca reste la meme.

    if things have changed so much, one wonders why robertson was so stifled in a sense. beached whale in malibu??

    the obama quote is horrible yet one can bet that there are no queer people in that count even though — let us wonder about plenty.

    Politeness is not Crispy’s first language, right? Please note that I am inexplicably directing my question at nobody instead of Crispy himself (for added rudeness).
    Anyhoo, go Toronto World Pride 2014! It seems sort of odd that the World Pride preceding Toronto’s will be in 2012 in London (hmm I wonder which will be better) and then the next will be in 2019. World Pride is relatively new though so I guess that sort of explains it. After Toronto’s the plan is to hold it every five years.

    Geez it’s about time Daniel found a place in West Village. Finally somewhere he can let his hair down and hang out with his gay friends, who are obviously more entertaining than his hetero buddies! He’s a bold little nut and I like that.

    @ the twins on X Factor? Un-fugging-believable that they’ve made it this far. Behold the power of tonedeaf teenaged girls willing to spend hours dialing in votes.

    @ Lance Bass – I’ve never been attracted to him and I’m still not. But his body is coming along quite nicely.

    @ increased threats on president’s life. No surprise there. Sadly it’s just proof how much prejudice still exists in this country.

    Uhm, it is called investing his money. he is obviously betting the housing market has hit its lowest point and is investing his $$$ on the assumption 5-10 yrs he will make a nice profit as vs putting his money into the stock market….though going up still has a lot of people feeling jittery

    smart but not. property is cool to invest in but…. NOT YET….there is another big wave of foreclosures coming due to unemployment.


    X factor is a comedy show right? Those 2 are a comedy act right? playing up the cheesy homoerotic twin thing with giving a necklace to each other and the horid sinnging for laughs right? Oh, they think they are serious and teenybopper girls think they are serious and are burning up the phone lines keeping them on the show.

    The sun has finally sunk below the horizon never to shine again upon the british empire……..If there was ever any doubt………..watching the twins getting as far as they have in a british talent show provesbeyond all shadow of doubt that the sun shall never ever EVER shine again upon the british empire. The apocolypse has come and the last bell has rang. Great Brittan is DEAD

  5. Brian says

    I don’t know about Great Britain being dead, Jimmyboy, but those two couldn’t sing their way out of a wet paper bag. I had to turn it off halfway through. Atrocious doesn’t come close to describing their “talent.” Painful to both watch and listen to.
