Rosie's Variety Special

Did anyone see Rosie's horrific variety special the night before Thanksgiving? What a piece of shit. Seriously. Awful, awful piece of shit. There is no polite way to describe it. What a load of crap. I guess they were so excited to do this, they forgot to write the show or practice.

After Liza and Rosie started the show with a song that neither of them bothered to rehears, I thought, “It can’t get much worse…” Then Alec Baldwin brought in "the door"… the show was no longer in a decline, but a complete free-fall.

When the show finally ended, I was filled with relief. I was also stunned that no one bothered to rehearse anything. I used to think that Rosie could be entertaining in almost any setting. I was very, very wrong.

I remember the many variety specials they ran in the 60’s and 70’s. They were fun and full of talent. They faded in the 80’s and are now gone. I’d hoped that Rosie might bring back the variety special… instead, that bitch killed it.

After Thanksgiving Dance

We all need to move a little after eating too much turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, and lots and lots of pie--and here is one of my current favorite songs, Single Ladies by Beyonce. However, someone cleverly replaced her video with this bit of choreography by Gwen Verdon, Bob Fosse's wife.*

*If you don't know who either Gwen or Bob were, you're either not gay, or so young you missed out on an era where choreography was dancing, not throwing yourself all over the ground... (harrumph!)

G'Spank Bank, Mate!

Who am I to go against the powers that be at People Magazine? Hugh Jackman is the newly crowned "Sexiest Man Alive!" Below are some examples of why he's been inducted into this most distinguished lusty list:

Nice beach bod... and he's got some list-worthy friends!

Yeah... that's the stuff right there.

And he's a dad?! Now, I'm in LOVE!!!

Mark Harmon (86)
Harry Hamlin (87)
John F. Kennedy, Jr. (88) *

I don't know how much posting I'll do over the next week, as I'll be on vacation--but if you want to see a cool get-a-way, check out this video of a very clever penguin!

I don't know who David Thorne is, but he's certainly found a funny and unique way to deal with pesky overdue notices.

Time killer! Four videos… a little something for everyone. However, the first and last are the best.

If You Like It, Then You Shoulda Put a Ring It

Some people like Beyonce, some people love Beyonce… and then there’s Shane Mercado:

I love the song and I love how Shane just puts it all out there. He was on Bonnie Hunt yesterday and he was very sweet—plus, girlfriend has got some moves. I’d mock him, but if I could dance like that, I would.

Did I mention that I friggin' LOVE this song? No? Well, I friggin' LOVE this song!

Cute Cat Break

Funny Because it’s True


Now, this guy has got some pipes! (and he's cute--nice combo.)
UPDATE: A killjoy friend just let me know that this isn't Corey singing the song, it's a group called Moosebutter, and Corey is just lip-syncing. Moosebutter says it's with their blessing, but it's not nearly as cool as I thought it was.

Sort of Busy...

I've been busy lately. Well, not just with work, but for my new love: Facebook! Good Lord, how did I live without it? I've created a snowman army, sent good karma to friends near and wide, found out that a friend was "wishing [she] was someplace fun!" Wow. To really get into someone's mind... amazing.

Yes, it's a bit silly, but it's incredibly addictive! I've started searching around for old friends and old crushes. They've all moved on to great things, whilst I am barely able to crank out a blog post on a daily basis without depending on YouTube to save my sorry ass. Life is fun!

Speaking of YouTube, here are today's posts of note--enjoy at will:

The Wait is Over… (but it’s on again until May)

I need a cigarette after that one (AWESOME!)

Bank... Spank Bank

Bond is back, baby! Sadly, there will be no Baby Blue Bathing Suit, but 2 hours of watching gruff Daniel Craig is fine by me.

Fingers crossed for a shirtless scene!

If I saw this walking towards me, I'd probably wet my pants...

If this popped up while swimming, I wouldn't be able to get out of the water for a while...
(Just like junior high: "Uh, Coach... I think I swim another lap or two.")

Spontaneous Joy

You know, when I get bummed about the passing of Prop. 8 (see below), I have to try and remember the joy of an historic election night. Can anyone remember when there were spontaneous bursts of crowds rushing into the streets to celebrate an election? I certainly don't remember any of this happening when Bush was (kind of) elected:

No on 8 Fight Continues on…

First up, Keith Olbermann:

Second, a sad-new reality:
Third, humor and hope:

Spank Bank Friday

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the ever-spankable Ryan Reynolds.

Hell hath no fury like a Queer scorned

Well, someone has the right idea: there's now a petition to remove the tax-exempt status of the Moron Church.
Electoral Breakdown

Below is the breakdown for President by State:

Here is the same breakdown, but taking into account the population:

By county...

By county... by population:

So, if someone tries to tell you that it was really close, I think this proves it really wasn't.
(Is it just me, or does Florida in that last pic look like a throbbing dong? Yeah, it's probably just me...)

Meet Your New President

I honestly cannot remember the last time I was this excited and hopeful about the election of a president. I remember being relieved when Clinton won his second term, but this is different. This feels much better.

Live video of puppies... WARNING: it's addictive!

UPDATE: I think they got too many hits and have pulled the video... if you get a slide show, be patient, it will be back...
I Can't Wait for This


I'm sure you've all seen this already... but it's so impressive, it's worth another look.

"Your Voice Can Change the World"

Barak's final rally and, as always, he's amazing. All it takes is one voice...

The video is eight minutes, but it really gets going about the 5:00 mark.

Vote, fuckers.
"Let's Get to Work!"

Vote, fuckers... this means YOU!
