Market research firm Witeck-Combs Communications puts the buying power of the adult lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender (LGBT) population at $743 billion, up from $732 billion in 2009. With large populations in metropolitan areas and more households without children, gay sports fans are actually the perfect customers to catch a game on a Wednesday night."

Wilson And Harrelson Prove Nature and Boxer Shorts Good for Soul

Woody Harrelson is trying to help cleanse Owen Wilson of his recent depression troubles at the Hanaq Pacha Retreat Center, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in the Peruvian Andes. The two also reportedly visited a local orphanage.

Page Six reported: "Local celebrity gossip program 'Magaly TeVe' aired video Wednesday night of the two actors deep in Peru's Andes bathing in an irrigation ditch wearing nothing but their boxer shorts. It showed the pair pouring handfuls of water over themselves under the highland sun."

Hopefully they didn't follow it up by beating cooked chickens with a hammer but apparently that gets the bad stuff out.

For every challenge listed, about four to five go unreported, according to the library association. Krug said 30 books were actually banned last year. 'Books aren't banned nearly as much now as they used to be, because communities are much more active in fighting that,' Krug said about the bans, which can lead to books being removed from both school and public libraries."

road.jpg New York magazine hunts for Matt Drudge: "Who is the man behind the Website? The more power Drudge has attained, the more reclusive he has become. Drudge seems to despise his own fame with a Kurt Cobain–like intensity. On radio he speaks of himself as a nobody and has referred to his fans as “psychic vampires.” He has utterly compartmentalized his life, separating the personal and the public. Acquaintances describe very brief, formal encounters, and even friends of Drudge’s, if there is such a category, generally communicate with him by IM. He’s said by some to be gay, but he has thrown water on these speculations."

He fell 900 feet - and walked away - but later learned torn the meniscus in his left knee and damaged his right ankle. The military, however, didn't dismiss Miller because of his injury. They dismissed him because he is gay. 'In Miller's case, he said he was in a known gay bar minding his own business when a male soldier made him a sexual proposition, which he rejected,' The Record reports. 'The rejected soldier reported Miller to a superior, and Miller was subsequently called in. He didn't lie. He admitted he was gay.' In short, Miller became the latest victim of a law that has become known within the armed forces as a most effective weapon of vengeance."

Actor Owen Wilson Hospitalized in Failed Suicide Attempt

Late yesterday, the National Enquirer broke the sad news that actor Owen Wilson was in stable condition at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after being rushed to the hospital in what appears to be a failed suicide attempt:

Owenwilson"Wilson was transported to St. John’s hospital in Santa Monica , Calif. on Sunday, August 26, by ambulance. Sources tell the ENQUIRER and Star that he sliced his left wrists and took an indeterminate amount of pills. He was discovered by a family member who summoned help. Police and an ambulance responded to a 911 call from Owen’s house around noon on Sunday. His wrist was sutured and bandaged at the hospital. The ENQUIRER and Star broke the story of Owen’s hospitalization earlier Sunday and revealed that he was being transferred from St. John’s after being stabilized. The publications learned that he was going to be detoxed. Owen was brought in to St. John’s in very serious condition. Police were on the scene immediately as was a criminal defense attorney, believed to be working for Wilson. Some of Owen’s family was with him."

Luke and Owen Wilson: Choosing a Butt Double

According to Hollywood Rag, portions of the budget for recent films You, Me and dupree and My Super Ex-Girlfriend went toward butt doubles for Owen and Luke Wilson, respectively. That would be "$500 for an eight-hour day, with an extra charge for naked cheeks."

WilsonsLuke described the process of choosing one's butt double as such: "What they do is they give you photos of different guys' backsides and have you pick one out. I found myself poring over the Polaroids and saying, 'I like that one but it doesn't have quite the pizzazz I want for this scene.' Or, 'This one's good, but it's too muscular.' I've got a little bit of damage back there. As you get a little older, you get little dents and indentations. You want to act cool about it when you eventually say, 'I like this guy's a**.'"

Owen had no comment, but his Dupree co-star Matt Dillon has been inspired to speak on the topic. Said Dillon: "I don't know what's wrong with [Owen's] butt because I didn't pay any attention to it. I truly don't know what that was all about."

Of course, nothing slightly homoerotic ever crosses the mind of Matt Dillon. He recently revealed his shock and repulsion upon finding a friend getting off with one of his socks: "I did have a friend who did that. That's just disgusting. My f***ing sock! They were disposed of immediately, the whole damn drawer of them."

Let's hope Dillon's butt stays tight and youthful so he never has to go through the really gay process of choosing a double for it.
