Well, this should be fun. The three judges for Nationals on Glee are going to be Rex Lee, Lindsay Lohan, and Perez Hilton. Considering Perez has used Lindsay as a money making business for years, that could be awkward.
Well, Morgan, meet the parents: Joseph Gordon-Levitt has cast Tony Danza as his father in his directorial debut, in which Levitt plays a porn addicted player trying to change his ways.
Heather Wilson, a New Mexico Republican running for Senate, says the Student Non Discrimination Act is unconstitutional, because kids before puberty don’t know they’re gay, compromises the free speech rights of bullies, and criminalizes teasing, which she sees as a rite of passage. Are we sure she’s not from Arizona?
We now have a real sonic screwdriver for when the Daleks invade.
Students at NYU protested against Chik-Fil-A being on campus, but John Sexton, president of NYU, says that while vendors can be banned for violating human rights, their support of anti-gay groups is a political issue. So I’m guessing gay rights aren’t human rights?
Brian Burke, father of Brandon Burke, founder of You Can Play, and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs believes that the NHL will have an openly gay player within two years. “I think our athletes have made it clear they support their teammates. I think management has made it clear through their support of You Can Play. I think fans have made it clear. I think the commissioner has made it clear. I think the league office has made it clear. Everyone knows now the NHL is on board. I believe players will take a little while and make sure we’re not going anywhere, that YCP and the Burke family are here to stay, and within the next couple years they’ll know that this is a league in which they can come out and still play.”
Perhaps the most surprising thing in the latest roundup of pilot buzz is news that Max Mutchnick and David Kohan have nailed the sitcom based on their real life partnership, and CBS is high on the show. Can we finally get a regular gay lead on a CBS show, not just a recurring? Ryan Murphy’s The New Normal has finished shooting, I know from Twitter, but hasn’t been delivered.

Walter, the new Muppet, will be a big part of the new movie, but it is essentially a Kermit story. Thankfully.
Well, the National Enquirer was right: Josh Hutcherson did have two gay uncles who died of AIDS in their 30s around the time of his birth. Activism is in his blood, “My mom has always been a big advocate, especially in the gay, lesbian, transsexual and bisexual community so for me it’s always been a part of my soul. This is what my family is most proud of and the same for me. Acting is one thing, but actually trying to change the world and the way people think to make people’s lives better? That’s the stuff I’m most proud of.” Total future ex-husband material.
Louisiana has shelved an anti-bullying bill after it was stripped of key passages protecting students based on sexual orientation. The sponsor said that without those passages, it gutted the intent and withdrew the bill. And yes, religious groups were involved, worried that a Christian student might run afoul of the bill. “You could make a criminal bully out of a child who holds an orthodox view of Christianity.” Yeah, and a bully can make a dead kid.
Well, in at least one case, the chicken came without an egg, precisely, but the mother didn’t survive the process.
So sexy rugby player Ben Foden got naked on stage at a strip club during his bachelor party, and his fiancé is pissed. But from what I’ve seen, expecting a rugby player to not get naked at a bar is kind of naïve. Pixilated picture at the link.
