  1. "Cristiano Ronaldo wins Balllon D'Or, cries with joy."

    It's kinda hilarious to me (as a football fan) that gay blogs neglected the four years in a row that Lionel Messi won the Ballon d'Or. But Ronaldo is "hot." I guess.

    If we're being puerile, and we are, the real news is that Ronaldo thanked his "wife" during his acceptance speech. (He should have thanked Messi's torn hamstring.) As far as everyone else knows, Ronaldo is unmarried, so all the gossip in Europe is did he have a secret wedding?

  2. Quick. Somebody name a Morrissey song.

    And then I'll Google it to see if you got one. Cuz, I'll be damned if I've ever heard a single track from "one of music's most important and influential artists."

  3. Do you mean Moz or just the Smiths? Either way, you've probably heard How Soon Is Now, Suedehead, Everyday is Like Sunday, This Charming Man, or (hopefully) The Last of the International Playboys. I'm not even a huge fan of his, but those seem like basic knowledge.

    I don't understand how people make it through life without music. I've also met people who have never heard of Velvet Underground or Siouxsie. So strange to me.

  4. crispy: I'm a Barça fan, but the truth is Ronaldo is way more gay friendly than Messi (and both have behaviour issues).

    And frankly, i don't know what to think about CR personal life, he was accused of raping a prostitute earlier in his career, and has other problems when he was playing in England.
    He pulled a Ricky Martin (or Vin Diesel) with his child, because all about that boy was weird weird weird.
    Rihanna outed him in an interview (of course Rihanna is not exactly the best source) and Paris Hilton did something similar.

    And frankly, most of his girlfriends look like PR stunts, very similar to some actors.

    He is being a lot nicer lately, maybe he grow up, and for once one of his circle of friends tell him the truth. Because he seems a good guy, but with a big big ego

  5. I hate when people correct themselves, but it's the Last of the *Famous* International Playboys.

  6. I see Jon Hamm is wearing baggier pants this season.

  7. Rand Paul looks like a deer in headlights with that snapchat photo ... my guess is that one of his young staffers is doing this for him and he has not idea what's going on.

  8. "Quick. Somebody name a Morrissey song."

    Seriously? I can only assume you are 12 years old and your favorite artist is Katy Perry.

    The Boy with the Thorn in His Side, Girlfriend in a Coma, Everyday is Like Sunday, This Charming Man, Suedehead, How Soon is Now?, There is a Light that Never Goes Out.

    I'm not even a Morrissey fan... his lyrics never seem to be about anything. But there's a reason why Coachella festival has reportedly offered the Smiths millions of dollars to reunite for just 1 show. Their influence is massive.

  9. I'm sorry. I should have been more specific. Somebody, who isn't an audiophile hipster, name a Morrissey song.

    Question: How many hipsters does it take to screw in a light bulb?

    Answer: It's a pretty obscure number. You probably haven't heard of it.
