  1. re: GLAAD Media Awards —

    I love how all the linked sites from GLAAD's page make you watch ads before you can watch ads. Oh what a world we live in.

  2. who knew it was a glorified bathhouse? thought the island house would have charm and signs of island heritage. not the case. let alone, the constant promotion on this site -- reminds me of the false charity behind some AIDS ventures that could have been more if not for the starched new england and shallow hollywood ventures creating bad relations and horrible sentiment apart from their pretense relative to equality.

  3. Did you read the piece about Heath Ledger's cousin? How does an article from October 2008 qualify as news?

  4. You misspelled Vivien Leigh's name.

  5. You misspelled the name of the hallucinogenic drug as "ayahuEsca" in the title. In the article it's spelled "ayahuAsca."

  6. Ayahuasca isn't a sludge; it's more like a bitter root. And people have said the same thing about LSD and other hallucinogens.

    Learning that the Situation will make $5 million this year is truly depressing.

  7. One day later and Ayahuasca is still misspelled in the title. I guess this shows that the Towleroad writers don't read readers' comments.

  8. I think this egg recall, like swine flu, is a way to scare folk in to supporting S510, which makes it illegal to grow, share, trade or sell homegrown food
