Random Musings

Adele 25. It's being released this November. Finally, I can begin listening to music again.
Blake O'Neill is a punter for Michigan Sate and last week he missed a kick, and rather than falling on the ball, it was scooped up by the opposing team who scored a touchdown and won the game.

Blake O’Neill was an instant pariah and began receiving online death threats … for a football game loss.

Note to online asshats: if you wouldn’t walk up to someone like Blake O’Neill and say to his face, “I want to kill you,” keep it off-line.

Oh, and also in Michigan — and this may, or may not, have anything to do with people wanting to kill a football player — a new bill is being proposed to allow guns to be carried in schools, college dorms, bars and … wait for it … sports arenas.

Uh huh.
Jim Webb has dropped out of the Democratic presidential race—though he may run as an independent.

I thought he was just holding Joe Biden’s spot, and now that Joe isn’t running, Jim can just sit down.
American Horror Story: Hotel is really pushing the boundaries, what with Gaga humping Angela Bassett — who looks faaaabulous by the way — and Finn Wittrock humping Cheyenne Jackson.

Maybe we should call it American Horror Story: Humping Homosexuals.
We saw the Martian last weekend. Good film, kind of improbable, but entertaining nonetheless. But this isn’t about that, it’s about the preview for an upcoming Will Smith film, Concussion, in which he uses an accent, and, gathering from the way the preview was edited, the only actor in the piece.

In other words, Will Smith wants an Oscar.
Am I the only one who is sickened by the near hourly reports on Lamar Odom’s condition? I have no ill will toward the man, but let’s be clear: he suffered a seizure after a four-day coke-Viagra-whore binge at a Las Vegas brothel.

And that’s daily news because … ?
Aaron Tveit is on USA’s Graceland, a show I’ve never seen, though Aaron is quite the Eye Candy.

He was also in Les Miz, and played the role of Fiyero in Wicked, and since I am such a Wicked whore, which is quite different from being a wicked whore, I loved hearing him singing “Defying Gravity” from Wicked alongside current Elphaba, Rachel Tucker.

Dreamy and hot.

"And that’s daily news because … ?" - RAMEN, bro! who really cares about this loser?

bibi - pot calling the kettle black; bibi is just as much a terrorist as the palestinians.

What stunned me about Lamar's self-inflicted condition was Khloe K's statement: "Please respect our privacy." Is this not a first?

Thanks for the Aaron T. Mention - my Broadway favorite.

unfortunately nutburgers infest every sport.
every player is someone's son and very precious
to their family. waaaaaay more important than
a football game. all the threaten-ers should
try and last a whole game on the field and see
how perfect they are.

What bothered me most about the LO's situation was the way all news sources (that I saw) made it about the K's rather than about his pain and his story. And thanks for the "Defying Gravity" clip. I just sat through 5 renditions of it, thanks to you. Wicked has been one of my favorite soundtracks for years.

Excuse this pun, but I've been eating living and shitting American Horror Story this season. I do believe I would like to live at the Cortez. It's really not much different from my daily life.

AM is right; the current situation in Palestine is as much the result of Israeli actions as Palestinian ones, which does not mean I approve of the actions of the Israelis or Hamas.

Netanyahu spouting drivel does not make impressive reading and is just worrying for the future of the middle east, which appears, thanks to Putin's assistance, about to go nuclear.

When I rode the train there was the same loud mouthed asshole who would talk louder than shit on his fancy schmancy ear and talk piece phone so that EVERY ONE on the entire train KNEW his business and how important he was. I'm certain he believed everyone on the train thought him to be some big mover and shaker. You don't know HOW BADLY I wanted to scream at him PUT A SOCK IN IT!!!!!

Martin Shkreli needs to get AIDS. (he does).

Matt Bomer is BEAUTIFUL. Omg.

... and EVERYTHING is Obama's fault. ugh.
