I’m confused. Did Pax Dickinson not expect to get fired for this?
The CW is importing the Canadian sitcom Seed to air in the U.S. “Seed tells the story of Harry (Adam Korson), an underachieving bachelor/bartender who is also a sperm donor. Harry reluctantly begins a relationship with three separate recipient families – a laid-back lesbian couple with a 9-year-old son, a neurotically hopeful single mom-to-be and an uptight, upper-class family with a rebellious teenage daughter – with whom he’ll come to share more than just his DNA.” I know the show has already aired in Canada, so what do our Canadian readers think of it?
Congrats to Rafael Nadal, who I’m informed won his second U.S. Open title last night.
Apropos of nothing, here’s an adorable new ad from five time U.S. Open champ Roger Federer. “Get your balls spinning more than the wheels on my pick-em-up truck.” Squee!
I knew it! Well, I suspected it was fake, but Jimmy Kimmel put one over on the world with that “Twerk Girl On Fire” viral video. Well done, sir.
Here’s a short clip from Horns, in which Daniel Radcliffe speaks with … no, I can’t do it. It’s just too bizarre. Don’t get me wrong, it’s flawless … but I can’t deal with it. No.

Ed posted the video of Keith Olbermann going off on Russia and the Olympics, and below you can see Keith talk to Johnny Weir (who’s wearing a Russian military uniform for some reason) about the pros and cons of boycotts.
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 … Ari Gold. Before we move on to Ari’s adult life, let’s take one more look at his kid career. in 1983 he appeared on The Joe Franklin Show and performed a medley of “Give My Regards” and “Yankee Doodle Dandy.”
And now we have the 50 GREATEST LOST HITS OF THE 90’S! I’ve often ragged on the pop music of the 90’s for being an arid desert devoid of fun, but there were bright spots, including these 50 songs, which should have performed better on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Like The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80’s countdown, this list is very female-centric (what can I say, I like rock chicks), but hopefully, some of these pop gems may trigger a long dormant memory.
At #45 is … “Shot Of Poison” by Lita Ford. The faboo Lita hit #12 with her 80’s classic “Kiss Me Deadly,” and then scored her one and only top ten hit with her Ozzy duet “Close My Eyes Forever,” but her 90’s output sadly failed to register. Her biggest 90’s hit was the irresistible but overlooked “Shot Of Poison,” which peaked at #54 in December 1991.
