BaldazzleRoadWould you "baldazzle" yourself? "Levine's latest work is a Swarovski crystal headpiece which he calls his best design yet -- and may give Jennifer Love Hewitt's vajazzle a run for its money. It includes 1,000 crystals that are painstakingly placed one by one onto his scalp."

RoadJanice Dickinson to OUT magazine: "The gays need more money. My gays need more money for AIDS and AIDS research. Elton John, pediatric AIDS -- we need to find a cure for AIDS. I’m obsessed. Here’s the deal: I love my daughter, she’s out there, Mother’s Day is coming, Mother’s Day to all you queers, but we need to find more money for AIDS. That is why I decided to do music -- to raise money for AIDS, more research, and the cure for fucking AIDS. Thank you."

RoadJane Fonda not proud of her plastic surgery.

RoadFCC loses big in net neutrality case: "The ruling basically tells the FCC that it has no authority to regulate the activities of internet service providers, just as the agency prepares to launch a nationwide broadband agenda."

  1. What in God's name was Janice Dickinson on when she gave that soundbyte...

  2. I'm so tired of the annual "asteroid to make close fly-by of planet Earth" story.

    A) It'll miss us, so they tell us.
    B) It'll hit us, but they say it'll miss us to avoid pandemonium.

    Back to more important stories like that double-filet chicken sandwich from KFC.

  3. Wait, he can sit still for 1,000 crystals but can't be bothered to do something about those enormous eyebrows?

  4. Being "one of the top schools in the state" of Mississippi....isn't that kind of like being (as John Stewart said) the thinnest kid at fat camp?

    Posted by: txstevo | Apr 7, 2010 3:39:10 PM

  5. Levine's latest work is a Swarovski crystal headpiece which he calls his best design yet-

    I call this a vulgar display by someone with more money than sense. People are unemployed, lack health insurance, losing their homes and this dick-wad calls this art? And who gives a fuck about his enormous eyebrows? Puuuhhhleeezze

  7. The Taiwanese kid singing Whitney is AMAZING! If only Whitney could sing like that now.

  8. Okay, who's screwing someone from the Fire Island Pines group? Or, who wants some advertising moola?

    I don't live on the East coast so I don't know how important FIP really is to you guys, but, this is starting to remind me of those posts on that Hotel in NYC not so long ago and the endless Bruno promos.

    I'm having a hard tie believing that every breath those three take is a call for late breaking news. I'm not saying you guys can't post about what you want. I'm jes sayin'....

    Question for someone not from the East coast, is Fire Island Pines really THAT important to you guys? I'm not bagging, I just don't know.

  9. Well Derek I don't live on the east coast, but i saw a documentary on LOGO a awhile ago about Fire Island Pines. Seems that historically its an important gay vacation spot; I'm guessing one of the first in its time. It got a lot of bad press in the 80s and 90s because of the spread of HIV. A lot of the regulars passed away, but I'm sure that would be true of any gay local in the 80s.

    On another note, that Dolce model is pure sex!

  10. Derek : Historically it's important, I guess. But not really relevant anymore. Nature-wise, it's beautiful, and I guess it's a fun place to take a vacation, for a weekend or the summer, but it's just one of so many other places... I think that goofy Edge Boston site is run by some Boy in Bushwick blog guy who likes to laze around there all summer and calls himself a "journalist."

  11. RE: Itawamba HS student's seems over the past few years lots of people have basically asserted a "right to hate," or a "right to be mean," or a "right to spread disinformation" as all falling under the "right to free speech." I still need to work out the logic, but all those claims of "rights" just seem plain wrong.

  12. And I used to wonder why the south was so solidly Republican ... I now know because no one with any sense of fairness and decency would want to live in that hell. Too bad that asteroid isn't going to hit there ...


    As for Janice Dickinson, she's a spokesperson we "fucking" don't need.

  13. Oh, and oh yeah- on the Tiawanese talent show- anyone else having an epileptic fit from watching all that scrolling?

  14. the taiwanese kid sang better than whitney. the dolce model is beautiful. the IHAS "classmate" is lower than whale shit.
