GLAAD, you are a big bunch of dumbasses!! I watched your whole self-promoting 2 hour patting-yourself-on-the-back awards show with all the glitz, glamour, and Candace Cane. And then you turn around and get something so simple SO wrong. The whole episode was a mess because the un-human Republican-robot-woman who agreed (for reasons still unclear) to participate was SUCH an ignorant religiopath that it was difficult to present ANY other viewpoints because hers was so overpoweringly "right" (according to Jesus). The episode turned out to be LESS about same-sex adoption and MORE about ignorant Christian right wing nut jobs and how out of touch they are with the rest of the world. GLAAD's "beef" with the show was just the TIP of the ignorance iceberg. I don't think they got her to say it on camera, but the Republican-robot-woman inferred repeatedly that it would be BETTER for young parent-less children to languish in the foster parenting system in group homes without ever knowing a warm, caring family than to live with two gay men or two lesbian women. The Republican-robot-woman was a terrorist of Biblical Cleansing at every LGBT event she attended, and then she wondered why everyone hated her and treated her like a raving BITCH. Well, honey, you ARE a raving BITCH, and you need to read a book OTHER than the Bible for a change. And, GLAAD, you need to spend your time working on the "people" who taught crazy bitches like RRW to hate. In their fatwa, GLAAD asks you to write and/or call FX and chastise them for blah blah blah... I'm emailing FX to thank them for airing shows like 30 DAYS.

profit |ˈpräfit| noun
a financial gain, esp. the difference between the amount earned and the amount spent in buying, operating, or producing something
According to the Associated Press, Exxon Mobil gave chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson an 18% raise to $21.7 million this year.
The average price of gas the week Bill Clinton took office in 1993 was $1.06, and it was $1.50 when he left in 2001. The average price of a gallon of gas the week Bush took office in 2001 was $1.50, and today we're all paying $4.13 a gallon.
I was unable to locate credible information on how much stock in oil companies is owned by Bush 1 & Bar, Jeb, Mr. & Mrs. Dick Cheney, and Bush 2 & Laura.

Was Mary Murphy wearing separates from the Joan Collins Collection?
My LEAST favorite pieces were the krumping which just did NOT "hit." Watch David LaChapelle's mediocre documentary RIZE for some real hardcore krumping. And, I hated the Viennese Waltz for two reasons 1) as Nigel pointed out, it wasn't a Viennese Waltz, and 2) How could anyone possibly judge the performance (or even the choreography) when they set up SUCH a sob-story about the choreographer's sick daughter. And, then Mia Michaels who saw through the BS feel-good story to say that the piece itself was sh*t, but of course the overly-emotional audience boo-ed her down and ate the boo-hoo up with a stick. Lame.
If the show is going to have dance categories (like "hip-hop," "krumping," "Viennese Waltz," and "Argentine Tango") then they should be given that type of choreography to dance.
My favorite pieces were #3) the Broadway number that brought the house down; #2) the sexy "Argentine" tango; #1) and as much as I haaated her first number, Mandy Moore's 2nd contemporary piece was my favorite piece of the night. The foxtrot was also lovely.
I agree with the female contestant the judges sent home (barely). It was a close call. Each of the final 2 ladies danced in their own style on Wednesday's show and came up WAY short. I totally agree with the judge's choice for the male contestant sent packing. The other two guys in the "bottom" three were excellent.
1. Supporting Actress nominees ALWAYS cry in their clips
2. 98% of winners will thank god or jesus or some combination of the two
3. It's surprising how many soap actors and actresses have multi-decade-long careers as the same character and never win an Emmy.
It was not a good night at the Daytime Emmys for me. Rachael "I Support The Taliban" Ray (see photo) won an Emmy instead of my only recently least favorite show THE VIEW. That just ain't right. Even with Hasselcoulter, they're still better than Rachael "Sunshine Is Flying Out Of My B#tthole" Ray. Ugh! THE VIEW has been chugging along through co-host disasters for ELEVEN years. They are now the talk show equivalent of La Lucci. Regis and Kelly are also Emmy-less after many years of consecutive nominations. I love Regis Philbin, but his lifetime Emmy speech was wooden and a bit rushed. I did enjoy the clip package, though. I wish Joy had gone up on stage with him!! Oh yeah, and Ellen won again. She needs to take her name out of the running next year like Oprah, so the others can have a chance.

I also love me some Kristin Chenoweth.
I love this number from THE DROWSY CHAPERONE. I would LOVE to see this show some day!
And, then there's Ms. Jennifer Holiday.
Those balls. 400,000 of the cute li'l things are intended to create shade for Los Angeles' water sources to keep sunlight from producing dangerous bacterias and whatnots. It looks like a giant goth Ikea ball pit! Learn more about these black balls from Buzz Feed.

My favorite SOUP quotes from this week are:
About David Cook, "There's an American Idol contestant I'd like to have a baby with!"
About the following assortment of items somehow related to a challenge on THE MOLE: an antique battery, a bowler hat, a Bunsen burner, a Victrola, and a goat; Joel said, "Now all we need is a safe word and we can get this party started. Alright!" I love it when Joel talks dirty!
"A SHOT AT LOVE WITH TILA TEQUILA is like FEAR FACTOR if Joe Rogan was a bisexual Asian midget chick... where's my plate of goat taint?!"
I love that he calls Denise Richards: It's Complicated "Denise Richards' Colon... It's Complicated"!
My favorite moment of every week's show is when Joel "takes some E!" and dances around to hot, gay dance beats. I would actually watch a 30 minute show of just that. But, enough about me.

TiVo Sponsors “SuperDad” Contest with Right-Wing Focus on the Family
Nominate the GBTQ Dads in YOUR Life Today!
Dear Friends and Family,
I just found out that TiVo, the home entertainment company servicing millions of families nationwide, is working with James Dobson’s Focus on the Family on a “SuperDad Essay Contest” for Father’s Day. As you can imagine, Focus on the Family is only looking for one type of “super” dads and they certainly are not part of our community. That a national company many of our families send checks to each month would sponsor a Father’s Day contest with Focus on the Family is horrendous. I need you — all of you — to help us respond.
I won’t often ask you to visit Focus on the Family’s website, but today I am. The Family Equality Council is organizing a response to this discriminatory contest, asking you to nominate yourself or the GBTQ dads in your life. To do so, you have to visit www.family.org/fathersday/, sign up for their parenting forums (message boards), and submit your nomination (100 words or less) through the boards. I’m encouraging two-dad families to submit joint stories, highlighting the greatness of both dads in one entry!
In addition, I’m asking that you copy the text of your nomination and email it to OUTSpoken@familyequality.org, so we can feature your beautiful stories and hard work on Family Equality Council’s Blog and with others in our community!
This is a great opportunity for GBTQ dads in our community and their family members and friends to share the real stories of their lives and let TiVo and Focus on the Family know that all dads can be Super Dads!
Others can and should participate, as well. The Family Equality Council has created a petition for parents, family and friends to sign. The petition is aimed at TiVo and will let them know just how many LGBTQ-parented families and supporters are out there! Click here to sign the petition now!
Last summer more than 50 families sent their stories to Adoption.com in response to their discriminatory actions online (read about it here). I want to increase that number 10-fold this year. Let’s send 500+ nominations to Focus on the Family’s “SuperDad” contest and show them how truly super our GBTQ dads are!
Thank you for your time and for celebrating all loving families with us each and every day!
Jennifer Chrisler, Executive Director
Jennifer Chrisler also released a statement to TiVo, Inc. this afternoon:
Please join our efforts to let TiVo know that working with discriminatory organizations like Focus on the Family is the wrong way to do business with all American families. Sign the petition and nominate the GBTQ dads in your life today!

"Paul has the accent and demeanor that clearly reveals he's an Italian New Yorker from Yonkers. Paul works 9 to 5 as a machinist for a utility company and as a wedding DJ on the weekends."
Liz rocks!! "Liz has more energy than people half her age. She lives life to the fullest and does not let age stand in her way. She won't hesitate to shock people with her outlandish sense of humor. Liz is a widow. When her husband passed away, she decided to adopt two children and raise them on her own." 6/9/2008 update: Liz was executed on the second episode.
"Bobby [is a fox,] loves games, competing, and winning, though you may not know it from his low key exterior. He is a hardcore fan of The Mole and used to host Mole watching parties in his basement. He knows the game well and has a solid strategy to form coalitions with less intelligent players that he can lead astray."

The ashes were said to have been kept in a "pink teddy bear-shaped bag along with a lock of his hair" and were taken with some jewellery and clothes.
Some of the Nirvana frontman's ashes were previously scattered near his home in Washington State and some at a New York Buddhist temple, with his widow retaining the rest.
The Widow Love slurred, "They were all I had left of my husband. [Except for his millions of dollars.] I used to take them everywhere with me just so I could feel Kurt was still with me. Now it feels like I have lost him all over again."
