I’ve never liked Jay Leno. I never found him that funny. Amusing? Sure. Funny? Not so much. Letterman? Hysterical. Even when he’s not that funny, he’s really funny. Remember when Johnny Carson told a joke that bombed? It was almost better than when he was funny. Letterman reminds me of that. He can take a bad moment and work it for the next half hour. Leno? He has writers that are… um, bad. I once saw one of his writers at a comedy show. The guy actually billed himself as “a writer for Jay Leno.” I’m sure Jay’s lousy comedy isn’t all this guy’s fault, but jeez… he sucked. Jay apparently goes for quantity over quality. His jokes may suck, but he does tell a lot of them…
Jay has this squeamishness about gays. It’s like high school kids discussing anything about sex outside of blow job and missionary: giggling, misunderstanding, and complete idiocy. Letterman, on the other hand, you can tell isn’t into it—he gives that look of “ewww”—but, at the same time, he isn’t laughing at the gays. It’s not Dave’s cup of tea, but he’s not mocking them. Douchebag Leno is.
Well, a number of people are finally fed up with Mr. Leno. Of particular note is Jeff Whitty (playwright, most notably for Avenue Q), who wrote a letter a few years back that went viral on the internet. He got some press coverage and eventually spoke with Jay. Jeff thought that Jay understood a bit.
Nope. Stupid is as stupid does.
Recently, Jay Leno had Ryan Phillipe on his show and Jay felt that Ryan’s playing a gay teen early in his career (One Life to Live) was great fodder for the morons that still watch the mess he’s made of The Tonight Show. He asked Ryan to give his “gayest look.”
What. A. Douchebag.
Jeff Whitty decided he needed to address the situation one more time and posted a brilliant picture where he gives his “gayest look” to Mr. Leno:
Well, it hasn’t taken long for others to follow suit and post tons of pictures of people giving their gayest look to Jay Leno. (I love me some Melissa McEwan at Shakesville.)
Feel free to send on your “gayest look.” For me, I prefer this gay look:
Next time you’re flipping channels late at night, be sure to give Jay your gayest look and then keep flipping until you get to Letterman.
[UPDATE: You know, I feel bad I neglected Jon Stewart and Craig Ferguson in my late night TV discussion above. Jon is brilliant in just about everything he does--and The Daily Show is completely in its element right now with the election. But Craig is often ignored because he's on so much later (hence, his aptly named show: "The Late Late Show". Jon has always been good to the gays, calling the b.s. when he sees it. This clip from TLLS is a prime example of how funny and geniune Craig can be. And Jay Leno still sucks... the "give your gayest look" is getting more and more play!]
[Another Update: Jay is apparently "sorry" for his remarks. Sorry that that his crack didn't go unnoticed. Still a douche... ]

More revealing pics of the delicious Leighton* at Bent Blog… totally NSFW—but who cares? He’s f’ing beautiful!

As much as I try not to be a size queen, there is something about staring at a big hunk o'meat that is just f'ing lovely. I really need to read more--and this book is providing the perfect motivation!
So, I’m at the Bakery the other night, talking to a visiting decorator, Ann. We were trash talking Easter and someone was a bit shocked and they had that look on their face. Ann and I continued talking in a very matter-of-fact tone:
Me: I know, I know… I’m going to Hell, I’m just waiting to see what level of Hell I will be…
Ann: You know Hell is going to be fun—everyone who’s cool will be there.
Me: True. And if Hitler wanders up, we can always shun him.
Ann: Oh, I’m sure by now he’s come around [about the Jews].
It made me laugh for a solid five minutes.

Can someone tell me what's up with Victor Garbor's left ear? That thing is huge!
I love the show Eli Stone, and he's very good in it (he's good in just about everything--my favorite role of his is the minor role of Greg, from Sleepless in Seattle: he gets 'emotional' talking about The Dirty Dozen). However, it's difficult to watch his scenes because of his GINORMOUS left ear!
Seriously... these shots are straight on, but on the show, they shoot him from his right side... and you can still see Dumbo flopping into the scene.
Certainly I can't be the only one to notice this...
[UPDATE: Apparently, I'm not the only one to notice this!]

Happy first day of Spring! The weather is beautiful in Northen California this morning, the trees are full of blossoms, the birds are singing and Easter is just around the corner! I love Spring because we shed our winter coats and get out in skimpier clothing:

He may be pulling in $12 million a picture and deified by women worldwide, but George Clooney is apparently not above digging around in cat shit for the sake of a good joke.
Actor Richard Kind (who plays Paul on "Spin City" and is a member of Clooney's inner circle) and his pet feline learned that lesson the hard way.
This went on for days: the cat crapping, Clooney merrily scooping and flushing. And eventually, Kind grew understandably concerned.
"Richard went to the vet to get some kind of thing to make the cat go to the bathroom," says Weiss. "The poor cat. The cat's shitting, and George is still cleaning it up."
"Finally, George stood over the cat box and took a giant shit," Weiss tells the magazine. "And finally Richard goes in there and says, 'Oh, my God! Kitty!'"
Bush is the new Hoover! Yesterday, he actually said that the U.S. economy is “robust.” You know, it doesn’t surprise me. Not a word out of that man’s mouth was the truth for the last 8 years, why should he start now?
Still, it makes me wonder how that douche can sleep at night knowing he’s ruined the lives of so many. This is why I think Dubya is Satan. The Devil isn’t going to tell you he’s The Devil, he’s going to say he’s a Christian and then do the opposite…
306 days is 306 too many…

To counter my rant from earlier, here's a lovely little St. Patrick's Day message from the Muppet folks (with thanks to The Daily Dish):
Happy Birthday Shawn & Pat!
"Eddie Would Go."
And—bringing it all back down again—I should note that today is the 30th Anniversary of the dissapearance of Eddie Aikau, which I wrote about previously.
Okay... so this debate is over right? We're done, right? Enough, already! With a 50% divorce rate, you have not proven your case at all. Need an example, or two... or three... or four... or...?
If that doesn't do it for you, try this! McGreevey's aide says he, McGreevey and Professional Victim (Mrs. McGreevey) were threesome-ing it for quite some time. But, she "had no idea" he was gay. Um, when he's sucking crank in front of you, lady, that's a BIG DAMN CLUE!
[UPDATE: McGreevey admitted to the threesomes... I think want to go into politics]
Still not convinced? Try to figure out the "sanctity" of this, this, this, and this—plus, I'd love to know God's take on this and this. And if it doesn't work out there's this and this. Or for you do-it-yourselfers this and this.
This completes the end of the debate for Sanctity of Marriage. Why not let gays do for marriage what we do for property values? Give us marriage rights and we will fix it up and make it better. Honesty, do you really think we'll do a worse job than you?
However, if you're going to continue denying gays the right to marry—not civil union, not partnership, but full-on fucking MARRIAGE—you had better come up with a better reason, because that one NO ONE buys anymore.

The new five-dollar bills are out today and Yahoo! News has a wonderful image of "the front, top, and back of the new five dollar bill."
On another note: who says Abe isn't gay? "Splash of color"? Oh, you go, girlfriend! You know Mary Todd isn't working with splashes of color... that's all Abe!

Two weeks ago, I’m bouncing around the internets and I click on this music link and all of the sudden—BAM!something starts to download. I stopped it and being protected by McAfee Security, I didn’t worry too much.
Suddenly, on the toolbar at the bottom, a red X appeared and a dialog box pops up with this little noise [BINK!] “Your computer is infected! Windows has determined that a virus is on your computer. Click her to get rid of it.” Well, being the intelligent guy I am, I clicked it.
Quick as a flash, Win Reanimator starts to download. Win Reanimator will protect me. Win Reanimator will find this virus and stop the mean red X from appearing. Win Reanimator quickly finds the problem and for a mere $60 will relieve me of the problem.
Fuck that. I can download spy removal software for FREE!
I download all sorts of software, hoping one of them will do the trick. [BINK!] Then I start doing some research on this Win Reanimator. Apparently, it is the virus and it does not go away (even after relieving one of $60).
Frantically, I started searching for other spyware programs. I downloaded every free spyware program available. None of them could get rid of it. I used to have Webroot’s Spy Sweeper, so I bought that, figuring that maybe if I paid for something, it would work…
I logged onto all sorts of geek sites, trying to find a solution on how to get rid of this nasty crap. Each site had longer and more complicated instructions than the last. And almost everyone stated “removing [whatever files] could permanently damage your computer.”
Terrific. [BINK!] (Oh, Bloody Hell!)
Then a friend suggested Smit-somethingorother to get rid of the virus. Not only did it not kill the virus, it did manage to kill McAfee. The thing wouldn’t run! I’m paid until 2010 for that friggin product and it won’t run? I uninstalled McAfee, went to their website and tried to reinstall. [BINK!] Win Reanimator managed to f’up the download. McAfee is dead. I’ve got a virus that the virus program can’t fix and the firewall is down. I’m exposed to the world.
Fucking great. [BINK!] Every time it does that [BINK!] I swear those bastards who created this virus will be forced into a lower realm of Hell…
I was about to pop in my Windows install disk and zap [BINK!] my whole computer clean when I realized that I would have to reload [BINK!] EVERY F’ING PROGRAM BACK ONTO MY COMPUTER! [BINK!] Damnit! The think is binking at a faster pace and my computer is slowing down… must… do… something…
Before I zapped my computer, I decided I should probably buy some protection for my computer when it’s up and running, so I decided to try Norton 360. Why Norton, well, 1) we use it at work and I haven’t had any problems, 2) McAfee sucks balls, and 3) I found it on sale with free shipping.
I downloaded it last night at 11:25pm. It was up and running at 11:34. I did my first scan at 11:35 and by 11:36 it zapped that fucking Win Reanimator off my computer. Gone, bink-baby, Gone!
To the wonderful folks at Norton: God Bless You.
To the rat-bastards at Win Reanimator: I will find you…

It’s an fascinating and unique way to start the weekend.
So, what’s your costume of the day? Here's what I'll be wearing:

Just for you EGL, some "package" pics of Jonathan Papelbon. Sadly, those black compression pants do not allow enough access. Pabelbon was also in the news today in Boston...
Monday, March 03, 2008
EGL posted a comment on "Big Ginger" Prince Harry stating that he was going to put the pictures I posted of the young man who is third in line for the British throne into his 'spank bank.' Every guy knows immediately what this is, because they have one. Able to retrieve and access information faster than any supercomputer, the spank bank is an imporant tool in the survival of any man.
It got me thinking... (dangerous, I know), but I get a lot of emails with pics of 'spankable' guys but I don't tend to share them (most are nekkid... :-) ) and I usually don't have anything witty or interesting to say about them. Well, this is where my 'Spank Bank Posts' will come in. I will just label them as such and let you enjoy the picture. Today's post, as you can see, is Jonathan Papelbon of the World Champion Boston Red Sox, from when they won their division championship this past fall. I love me some Papelbon!*
For those of you who don't know, the Urban Dictionary describes a "Spank Bank" as 1. A memorable collection of mental images that one wishes to retain for master debational purposes. 2. Porn collection
