Birthday shoutouts go to Ruth Buzzi, who is 77, Kristin Chenoweth is 45, Jennifer Lopez is 44, Anna Paquin is 31, and Lynda Carter is 62.

Alec Baldwin went after Anderson Cooper for calling him out on his twitter rant: “Anderson Cooper has a job to do. And that job is to try to reinforce his credibility in the gay community after the fact that you couldn’t get him out of the closet for 10 years with a canister of tear gas. Now he’s the sheriff. Now he’s running around writing everybody a ticket!”

Ryan Murphy talks to E!online about Cory‘s death, and how he almost pulled the plug on the entire show rather than go on without him.

New cable channel pivot.tv will premiere the Australian series Please Like Me on August 1st. It stars and is written by Josh Thomas, and centers on a twenty-something discovering his sexuality. It’s already aired down under, and I’m curious to hear what our Aussie readers thought of it?

This trailer for the live-action Daria movie isn’t real … but it should be.

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT to … Lance Bass. Remember when Lance wanted to go into space? It was no joke, as he actually moved to Star City, Russia, and was certified by both NASA and the Russian Space Program for Cosmonaut training, and planned to visit the International Space Station. Sadly, his financial backers backed out, and Lance had to give up his dream.

Now, presenting … THE TOP 40 HORROR FILMS OF THE 80′S! Journey with me back to the birth of the Dead Teenager movie (actually, that began in the 70′s, so I guess it would be the Afterbirth Of The Dead Teenager Movie), the last gasps of the Italian Horror Masters, and the franchises that still continue today. Yes, your Freddy, Jason, and Michael will be represented, but I’m also going to pay tribute to the obscurities that deserve to be seen. At #25 is … Demons

Italian masters Lamberto Bava and Dario Argento brought us this typically, and wonderfully overwrought production, with all the hallmarks of great Italian horror: Impossible gore, dizzying quick cuts, questionable dubbing, and a killer soundtrack. The pus-filled dead invade a movie theater. Sadly, no dachshunds in rat costumes are involved.

Congrats to Kate, who was the first to correctly guess that yesterday’s Pixuzzle™ © ® was Daria
