  1. Remember the thing about a tree falling in the woods and nobody hearing it. What if the Westboro Church held a protest and nobody reported on it. Who cares what they say or do. They're crazy. Let's all stop paying any attention to them. I would be happy to never see, hear or view anything connected to them ever again. If we don't care, and we don't give them any attention, they may just go away. Attention and outrage is what fuels them. Without it... Well, lets just see what happens to them.

  2. I would think that McQueen's funeral was being held in England.

    I only say that because I thought that England barred the Phelps clan from there.

  3. What story does the bookshop photo go with?

  4. I was wondering that, too, Jersey

  6. I'm with ya Brian. People need to stop reporting about those fuckers.

    And Chitownkev, I think you're correct about that.

  7. Love Ryan Reynolds, but that photo is awful. Looks like I took it.

  8. I am delighted to hear Attitude lost a distributor. Hopefully the magazine goes out soon and all the gay employees get to work in the real world alongside haterosexuals they love so much. A "gay" magazine that puts haterosexuals on the covers month after month is not a gay magazine. Attitude magazine wants to perpetuate haterosexual prejudices onto gay people by implicitly telling gay people that haterosexuals are more valuable/ better than they are. So all the misfortune of Attitude and it's employees are welcome news to me.

  9. As someone who knew Susan, albeit briefly before she died, I can tell you Terry Castle is a nobody who Susan barely knew. Clearly Castle feels it's time for her 15 minutes. What a bitter, bitch.

  10. OK. I give up. Why the picture of the really hot guy in front of the bookstore?! I just spent 20 minutes going through every fucking link for nothing.

  11. RE: bookstore. There was a famous puzzlemaker who puzzle enthusiasts were quite fond of a while back (before I was born, perhaps). One day, he came out with a puzzle that true fans were driven insane by due to its apparent complexity. Well, it turns out that this puzzle had no solution, but given the prevailing assumption that every puzzle has a solution, it just drove people bats. Now that's my kind humor.

    I saw that video of the georgian luger who died, and it was horrifying and tragic. It's actually a pretty safe sport, so this was a freak accident.

  12. I'm having trouble understanding why gay Kenyans are getting married.. I need a cultural lesson

  13. The link posted that cautions Google buzz users is misleading. Not only is it possible to turn off the buzz feature and follow/unfollow people, but it's also easy to turn off the automatic addition of contacts feature.

  14. The gay bookshop pictured is called 'Gays the word' and it is the most prominent and I think the only specifically gay and lesbian bookshop in London. No idea what story the picture is meant to link to though.

  15. Ryan Reynolds has come a long way since starring in that not-funny sitcom "Two Gays, A Girl and A Pizza Place." Good for him

  16. The link to the bookstore story is showing up for me, but I'm viewing the site in Firefox. When I checked back in Internet Explorer, it didn't come up for some reason. Must be a glitch with the browser.

    Here's the link:

  17. aw damn, Tank, no one took your bait! Too bad.

  18. Trevor, Ryan Reynolds hasn't come far enough as far as I'm concerned. For example, he has yet to cum in my ass.
