Bill O’Reilly on ‘Glee’ — “Homosexuality is Contagious”

Written by , Posted in General

It never ceases to amaze me how threatened “straight” men are by gay people. The only explanation I have is that these straight men feel tempted by other men. After all, if you’re trying to lose weight, don’t you remove the M&Ms from your pantry? One such man who needs an M&M cleansing is Bill O’Reilly, who actually took the time on his very important show to discuss some very important opinions about Glee, saying that the show encourages same-sex experimentation. Watch below.

Clip of the Day — Does Carnie Wilson Fart on Stage?

Written by , Posted in General

Though I appreciate Wilson Phillips’ desire to stay relevant by using the reality-television medium, they are clearly missing the acting gene. In their new show, Still Holding On, watch Chynna Phillips confront her sister about her farting problem, and try not to cringe at the overly-produced clip.

Quote of the Day — Tim Burgess and Anal Cocaine

Written by , Posted in General

“We discovered the process of blowing coke up each other’s asses. There, I have said it. It’s not like we invented the practice but I realise now it’s not an everyday thing for most people. . . . Not every member of The Charlatans took part in this highly-charged ritual, which has been described as having a ‘Manhattan-powdered doughnut.’ I was a giver and receiver. They say giving is better than receiving, but believe me, in this case the giving is not that great.” Tim Burgess of The Charlatans, on his disturbing methods of drug use.

Denis Leary Insults Dick Clark — Heartless Prick?

Written by , Posted in General

If you don’t know Denis Leary, he’s the guy who’s accused of ripping off the late comedian Bill Hicks’ entire act. He’s also the guy who can’t wait a week to make a joke about the legendary Dick Clark’s death, tweeting, “With Dick Clark dead, Casey Kasem now reveling in his status as last and reigning king of leather faced syrup voiced lizard people.” Perhaps it’s time to either fire the guy writing his tweets or hire a guy to write them.

Rihanna Deletes Coachella Photo Amidst Drug Accusations

Written by , Posted in General

While some might consider Coachella a music festival, it’s really just an excuse for douchey celebrities to pretend they’re cool by wearing ridiculous outfits with really big sunglasses. One such celebrity is Rihanna, who posted a picture of herself cutting up powder on her bodyguard’s head. When she received a predictable backlash for the drug implications, she deleted the picture and wrote an unexplained message, saying, “PATHETIC C*NTZ.” Right, cause that’s cool. Good job, Rihanna. Perhaps you should post more pictures of your gun tattoo also. It’s good for the kids.

Alexa Chung Deletes Instagram — Too Sensitive?

Written by , Posted in General

If there’s anything I’ve learned from blogging, it’s that only the negative people speak up. For whatever reason, when someone is pleased, they just don’t tell you unless you ask. In fact, my own father recently said, “Just assume I love everything you write unless I tell you otherwise.” So what’s my point? Alexa Chung needs to understand that the nature of the internet breeds negative commentary, and then she will perhaps make her account public again Instagram account, despite the endless, mean-spirited attacks she received from commenters who think she’s “too thin.”

Quote of the Day: Heidi Klum’s Gay Friends’ Sexual Advice

Written by , Posted in General

“They are like this kaleidoscope of interesting thoughts and opinions. They teach you so many things about men that are useful.” “Like what?” our reporter asked. Klum paused, and then made the universal tounge-moving-rapidly-in-cheek motion that signifies blowies. She explained what she’s learned (off the record, of course), and our reporter said she discovered two things: 1) Everything sounds authoritative when said in a German accent, and 2) Seal was a lucky guy.” An excerpt of Heidi Klum’s interview with Allure Magazine, which confirmed the need for homosexuals in her life. As an aside, I too have a lot of gay friends, but unfortunately our conversations involved their unfulfilling sexual experiences with women, and it traumatized me for life.

Occupy Wall Street Update: What are the Occupiers Occupying?

Hey remember the Occupy Movement? Well in case you’ve been wondering, its legal battles continue, and Occupiers continue to wield their sleeping bags and their persistence to (purportedly) fight for the rights of the 99%.

A man who refused to leave Zuccotti Park during the “eviction” of Occupy Wall Street last November is currently fighting a criminal charge of trespassing. Earlier this month, a Manhattan Criminal Court judge ruled that New York City and park owner Brookfield Properties had a right to evict Occupiers from their encampment in the park if necessary to remedy unsafe conditions. However, the judge found that a trial is required to determine whether the conditions actually were unsafe, as both NYC officials and the park’s owner claim.

According to the judge, if the allegations in the criminal complaint are proven true, the park conditions at the time of the eviction not only interfered with the public’s ability to use the park, but also posed a hazard to the health and safety of the public. Therefore, the judge found that these allegedly deteriorating conditions justified the park owner’s temporary removal of the park Occupiers for cleaning so that alleged safety hazards could be addressed.

Notably, the judge rejected the argument that evicting the Occupiers ran afoul of the First Amendment, agreeing with another Manhattan judge who rejected a civil challenge to the eviction the day after it occurred. In allowing the trespass case to proceed, the Criminal Court judge held that while some symbolic or expressive conduct is considered speech under the First Amendment, it is well settled that not all conduct meant to convey a message amounts to expressive speech.

According to the Manhattan DA’s office, about 2,020 people associated with Occupy Wall Street have been arrested in NYC since the protest began last September.

As the Occupiers are still fighting the eviction from Zuccotti Park, they also developed a new tactic – sleeping on Wall Street sidewalks near the New York Stock Exchange. According to an Occupy Wall Street spokesperson, last week protesters began sleeping in front of banks in lower Manhattan to highlight the issue of income inequality.

At least one attorney says that, as long as the sleep-puts are not incompatible with the public space, the protesters cannot be arrested because of a 2000 court decision allowing people to sleep on sidewalks to express their political views.

Occupy movements in other U.S. cities remain active despite setbacks. Occupy Detroit vacated its downtown encampment in Grand Circus Park last November – about the same time that campers had to leave Zuccotti Park in NYC. But nonetheless, members continue to work throughout Detroit on projects such as foreclosure prevention and homelessness.

On Friday night, Occupy Louisville (Kentucky) campers had to vacate the city park where they had been living for over four months, after their application for a permit to remain in the park was denied. The city’s chief of public safety claimed that the Occupy campers impeded the general public’s access to the park and caused serious damage to the property. But Louisville Occupiers remain confident that they will not disappear; they will remain active in the community.

Although I admire their moxie and I applaud them for taking advantage of all this free camping, can anyone tell me what the Occupiers stand for? And also, will they eventually put “Occupier” on their resumes after their camping trip is over?
