News: LeBron James Sucks What?, Glenn Beck U, Calamari Calamity, GLAAD Unhappy With The View


Road Gay (but celibate) nominee Rev. Jeffrey John is probably out of the running to become Bishop of Southwark in South London.

Road Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council is praising Gov. Linda Lingle of Hawaii for vetoing civil unions. BTW, he's on the record calling for homosexuality to be criminalized and for gays to be deported from the United States.

Road LeBron James branded a "cocksucker"—in a bad way—by Gawker.

Road The psychic octopus (no sentence should ever begin this way, but there it is) who successfully predicted the outcome of all the German World Cup matches has received death threats.

Road Jon Kortajarena, Andrés Velencoso and more of the world's top male models get naked (NSFW) for V Magazine.

Road What it's like to enroll in Glenn Beck's Beck University. First course: Faith 101.

Road The Outrate Online Short Film Festival 2010 is under way. (NSFW ads.)

Road Homophobic, racist, anti-Semitic, misogynist…now Mel Gibson can add "wifebeater" to his résumé. Allegedly.

Road The video for "Crossfire"—Brandon Flowers's first-ever solo single—premieres in the U.K. today.

Road GLAAD is after The View, specifically appealing to Barbara Walters over Sherri Shepherd and guest host D.L. Hughley's misinformed remarks that HIV is more prevalent in black women due to the number of gay and bisexual black men on the downlow.

Road Gay men seeking asylum in the U.K. should be "free to enjoy themselves going to Kylie concerts and drinking exotically coloured cocktails." Nice thought, but probably not the main reason they fear returning to their home countries.

Road The Jim Carrey/Ewan McGregor gay-themed film I Love You, Phillip Morris was screened at The Budapest Gay Pride Festival on July 4. (Anyone see it?)

Road Republican Rep. Aaron Schock—who is absolutely not gay—is once again celebrated for his good looks. As a legislator, he makes a great fitness model.

Road The California governor race is all tied up. Which is good news and bad news for both Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman.

Road Gay activist Peter Rosenstein endorses D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray in the Washington, D.C., mayoral race. He'd previously worked as an advisor to Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, but "it's another sign that many longtime local Democratic and civic activists are coalescing around Gray because of concerns about Fenty's personality and governing style."

Road A supplements supplement.

    I’m a lifelong Knick fan, but honestly, we don’t need any Lebron drama here. James will be another Patrick Ewing. I don’t think James could handle the pressure (media and otherwise) here. Better he stay in Cleveland. Even better: stop jerking everybody around Lebron.

    Don’t support Brandon Flowers. He’s a Mormon and his religion is hell-bent on gay discrimination. He may be cute and talented, but his church and his beliefs suck.

    Re: Philip Morris. There IS a copy out there in bittorrent-land, if bittorrenting is the kind of thing you like to do on the Internets. Video from (an alleged Russian) DVD is synced – rather well, IMHO – to an English-language audio track which was recorded from the audience at a screening.

    Just turn up the volume, and it works. Not a masterpiece, but close. Excellent, IMHO. I’d say 4 out of 5 stars. As you might expect, it’s hard to forget you’re watching Jim Carrey, but he has the right stuff for this character’s psyche. Awesome casting choice for an unforgettable character.

    @KIRKHELL: Ah, so it is! You can get an English language (Region 2) DVD from UK sellers on eBay for $US25 + shipping. I guess its fate was “straight to video”.

    That’s a hilarious pic of Shcock (yes, deliberately misspelled) in the New York Times article, he looks like he’s practicing for giving a blow job.

    Please, Please, Please, Please, Please.

    Do NOT link to the Daily Mail as a source on UK LGBT issues – let alone ANYTHING related to asylum seekers. It is a nasty, homophobic rag.

    The UK Supreme Court judge’s mention of Kylie and cocktails was for a serious purpose – use stereotypes to talk about sexuality meaning more than sex

    I torrented I Love You Philip Morris and found it quite engaging. Watched it twice, which is very rare for me.

    Couldn’t tell if Carrey was looking old due to real life or makeup. Gregor looked adorable, as always.
