Jon M. Chu is in talks to direct Masters of the Universe, which begs the question of who could play Prince Adam/He-Man. Kellan Lutz springs to mind for me (he’d look hot in the harness), but I’m sure some of you have better ideas than me.
The lead developer of Minecraft has written a blog saying that when he developed it, all the characters were created without gender, and any character could reproduce with any other character. Which, according to him, makes all the characters gay. h/t allan
I’ve been fascinated by the internet campaign to hijack a WalMart contest and send rapper Pitbull to the Kodiak, Alaska branch. Initially, David Thorpe, who engineered the whole thing was invited to tag along, but WalMart wasn’t willing to pick up the expense. So Pitbull paid for the trip, which I think is exceedingly cool of him.
My buddy Brett Berk has been writing Stick Shift, the exceedingly gay take on automobiles, over at Vanity Fair for four years now. He’s celebrating with a post on cars that cost more than $1 million each. I think I’d look great in the Bentley Continental GT Supersports Convertible, if anyone wanted to pick one up for me. Electric blue is a great color for me.
I’m really not good with the DC Comics world, so I don’t know the relationship that Green Arrow has with Deadshot, but The CW has cast hunk Michael Rowe in the role, so I hope it’s a character that doesn’t wear a lot of clothes.
NASA has conducted a study to discover (with the exception of Apollo 11) that the flags left on the moon by astronauts are still standing, judging by the shadows cast.
I’ve really enjoyed the mocking of NBC’s terrible coverage of the Olympics (they trumpet the ratings, but really what choice do we have?). But one critic, Guardian writer Guy Adams, may have gone too far when he tweeted the work email address of NBC Olympics head Gary Zinkel, and NBC filed a complaint and had Adams’ account suspended.
Political Animals’ James Wolk is completely open to a return as Max’s boyfriend on Happy Endings. As are we all.
The CW announced a bunch of stuff yesterday, but all I heard was that there would be another Muppets special. Everything else left my brain after that.
Mitt Romney has lost Ron Jeremy’s vote. Personally, I think it might be more effective for President Obama‘s reelection campaign if Jeremy campaigned for Romney.
While I found the Olympic Caldera to be a beautiful piece of art, I was confused at the placement in the stadium. Evidently, it was never intended to stay there, and had the flame kept in a miner’s lamp, while the entire thing was extinguished and moved to a new location.
Ryan Murphy is set to receive the International Emmy Founders Award this year, in recognition of programming that crosses cultural boundaries to touch our humanity.
After reading this survey, I admit to being surprised that 17% of men report faking orgasms during sex. Has anyone here ever tried that? It seems like it would be tough to pull off.
Jan Moir, mostly famous for trashing Stephen Gately at the time of his passing has jumped back into controversy after calling Olympic gold medalist Marianne Vos “some bitch from Holland.” Keep it classy, Jan.
