It’s a sad morning for a Joss Whedon’ite! Andy Hallet, the actor who played the singing demon with sass,from the most awesome T.V show Angel, has passed away from heart failure! Boo, I’m so sad. We’ll miss you, Andy/Lorne!!! Here are a few good things to remember him by:
Damn you Jennie Garth for keeping this man so close! He even looks good as a bleach blond, half-dead character in the Twilight movie(s). I’ve only seen stills, so I won’t go much more into it than that. Don’t want the Twilight-inies to freak out on me. But here he is in a 2000 movie called…oh hell, who really cares?
Enjoy the hot-assed video (pun definitely intended) below but don’t hit play if you can’t handle the heat.
Certain things are simply not possible. It is impossible for Light and darkness to coexist in the same space. And it is impossible for a person whose soul is filled with joy to experience hatred in any form. When you hate anyone or anything, there is a dark space in your heart.
When you feel the cold grip of hatred closing in on you today, remember what I wrote. When you take this teaching to heart, hatred is an impossibility for you, just as surely as a brightly lit room can’t also be dark.
Have you ever wondered how much the “celebrities” receive by appearing on shows such as “Dancing With The Stars”? Well, due to the fact that Shawn Johnson is a minor, the contract was unearthed and it details the amount of money they get for being on the show. I would imagine the salaries vary slightly depending on their star wattage, or maybe it’s just a standard rate. Here are some highlights and if you check out the documents, you can see all of the details. One more of my lifelong questions answered.
- Under the contract, Shawn gets a guarantee of $125,000 for appearing on the show. By surviving the first elimination, she gets an additional$10,000 a week for weeks 3 and 4.
- If Shawn survives the next eliminations, the rate doubles to $20,000 a week for weeks 5, 6 and 7. For weeks 8 and 9 she scores $30,000 a week.
- And here’s where it really gets sweet. In weeks 10 and 11, if Shawn makes it through, she gets $50,000 a week.
- Total take if Shawn makes it to the final 2 — $365,000.
Check out the kids getting out of the wood-paneled station wagon, ah, those were the days.
Padma Lakshmi makes a nasty, greasy-wrapped bacon burger look sexy as hell, and I have to applaud the video editing for making that happen. And of course, Padma herself, MMMM MMM good.
Whereas she looks sexy eating it, this is what I look like eating that kind of nastiness.
Man oh man, TMZ just posted this story about how Courtney Love was apparently dealing with a little-known designer in Austin, Texas named Dawn Simorangkir when things suddenly started to go sour. At which time, Courtney allegedly unleashed her crazy rants for all the world to see, with a goal of ruining the woman’s livelihood. Now there’s a lawsuit and it’s all documented.
I can’t even begin to do the documents justice with my paraphrasing, so you’ll just have to look. This one’s a doozy folks!
Go here to see the train wreck and below is a picture that might very well give you nightmares. Thank me later.
ABC News tested Americans’ increasing open-mindedness, they staged a verbal gay-bashing scenario at a local sports bar in Linden, N.J. Check it out below, it’s pretty fascinating really.
Check out this one on racism after the jump. Continue reading
Do you remember that story of a man who tried to do just that, but then got arrested for penetrating an inanimate object? OK, I jest, but he was arrested for indecent exposure and was just sentenced to 90 days in jail. I wonder what he’ll feel like with someone putting tender in his coin slot. Yeah, that was a groaner – it’s early.
Well, not for me because the last thing I want is the ability to be leaving a laundromatwith a thought of ‘Hmmm what should I do now?’ followed by my iPhone app giving my proximity to some skeezer in the apartment building across the street. However, I do know a few people who are on their way to the AT&T kiosk ’round the corner to one up. As if I really needed another reason to think my phone is a germ metropolis – thanks MENSA guys!
The iPhone is a hotbed for location-based social networks, which tap into the phone’s geolocation features to help users find nearby friends and strangers that they might like to meet. We’ve seen a handful of dating applications that cater to the straight community, and today brings the launch of Grindr (iTunes Link), one of the first iPhone applications geared towards gay and bisexual men.
While privacy is an issue for all location based social networks, it is of the utmost importance on gay networks. Without proper security measures, bigots could easily download such applications and use them to pinpoint targets for hateful slurs and potentially even violence. Grindr deals with these issues by obscuring a user’s absolute location by default. Rather than plotting each user on the map. Grindr displays how far away they are (distances can range from a few feet to miles away). READ MORE HERE
This is it. This is the defining moment you’ve been working toward – your chance to put a stop to the most catastrophic effects of global warming. This is the fight of our lives, and we have just a week to win it!
President Obama has just presented his budget to Congress, and it includes a very important cap on global warming emissions and a commitment to move America to a clean energy economy. By including action on the climate in his proposed budget, the President has clearly signaled that he intends to fight hard for a serious global warming bill this year. But he can’t win this fight on his own.
You know what this fight is for. Drought, floods, fires, and sea level rise will worsen significantly if we don’t take immediate action. Millions of lives could be at stake if we fail.
But as you’re reading this, powerful forces from the coal, oil and gas industries are working behind the scenes to make sure that Congress strips action on global warming out of the budget. They understand exactly what this will mean for their polluting industries. It’s a game changer. For the sake of our future and the planet, we can’t let them succeed.
TAKE ACTION >> Tell your members of Congress to pass a budget that includes limits on global warming pollution.
This is a historic opportunity. Congress will likely vote on this in the next week. Let’s make sure they follow Obama’s lead and do the right thing. It’s up to all of us to act now.
For our future,
Greenpeace Field Organizing Director
p.s. Please forward this to your friends and family and ask them to take urgent action, too!

If Hogwartz wasn’t already going to get shut down by those crazy’s at Jesus Camp, I guess there will be a few more placards going up that identify the fictional series as culturally influencing and cancer-like, Jewish, propaganda.
From one infidel to another, this is some oddly entertaining and ever so spooky shid making it’s way around the hearts, minds, and sleeper cells of our conglomerate olive tree gone astray…
