Adopt a Cutie

Here are some photos of the German Shepherd that my friend rescued. He got all his shots today, is already responding to commands and we need to find a home for him as soon as possible. Please open your heart up and take him in. You will not be disappointed.

Let's Share the Love

I've been hanging out with my baby all day, cracking up and and playing music. I'm a lucky, lucky girl and I hope that everybody is having as good a day as I am. You know how much I love you all and whether you have a partner today or not, I hope your day is filled with joy and chocolate. Holiday or no, let's all remember those we love and how thankful we should all be for the people we have in our lives that love us back.
I'm done being sappy, just watch the video before I embarrass myself further.

How to be a Hypocrite by Bill O'Reilly (Forward by Jon Stewart)

And the hits keep on coming. Ego + Condescending Attitude = Comedy Gold. O'Reilly is an endless fount of humor and The Daily Show host shows us how it's done.

Inglorious Basterds Trailer

Quentin Tarantino has a new movie coming out and it's been a long wait. If you love violence, and have no qualms about seeing a Nazi cracked in the skull and God knows what else, this may be the movie for you. Plus, it has Brad Pitt. Not naked "Troy" Brad Pitt but Brad Pitt nonetheless.

Looking to Adopt a German Shepherd?

A friend of mine rescued a dog from the streets of Shaker Heights after he was hit by a car. He's under a year old, probably weighs 60 pounds and is super sweet. She's at the vet with him right now and hopefully he's okay but she's not sure she can keep him. If not, we need an animal lover to step up and take him in. He looks like a pure breed and has a cute face. Sadly, these dumped dogs are becoming a daily occurance in these times of economic hardship, and it's heart breaking. If you are interested, please let me know.

That is not a picture of him, by the way. I'm waiting for her to send me one and then I'll post it so you can bask in his cuteness.

Latest Drag Race Recap

It's that time again where I remind everyone that I have a new recap posted on TVgasm. This week was the girl group challenge and it was a roller coaster ride of emotions and craziness. The wigs and makeup were flabbergasting and I'm really starting to like Jade and Ongina. Even though the diva attitude of Akashia is hugely entertaining, I felt like she needed a major time out or at least a tongue lashing from RuPaul, but he is waaay nicer than most people would be. If you can, head over to Logo online and watch the behind the scenes outtakes hosted by Barbie Ru. I need one of those dolls! I'll put it up on my wall right next to my RuPaul clock and my Lady Bunny Wigstock action figures.

Cheers, and I hope you enjoy it!

When Cars Advertise Your Douchiness

What you drive already reflects on your personality or station in life in so many ways. Driving a minivan means there's a good chance you're a soccer mom, Volkswagons connote liberalism and chances are that the dude that drives a pick-up also listens to Rascal Flats. Then we get into bumper stickers and the statements you can make are endless, but license plates? Those cost money so when you personalize your vehicle in that way, you are making an extra effort to say somethin really important, right? Wrong.

Here's the link to the article:

Happy Valentine's Day Everybody!

Here's a geeky card you can send somebody. And I hope you snuggle up with your partner, tell them that you love them then bang the crap out of them. It's the rule.

Alfie Will Be 30 When His Daughter Graduates High School

I saw this story in the Daily Mail this morning. A 12 year old boy, barely 4 feet tall, knocked up a 14 year old in his neighborhood. She just had the little girl yesterday. They kept the pregnancy secret until the girl's mom noticed her expanding belly. They are now 13 and 15 which would be a perfectly acceptable age to raise a kid 3,000 years ago in Mesopotamia. He'll be walking her to kundergarten on his way to High School. His own father has 9 children, the girl has 5 brothers and an unemployed father and they both live in Council flats (subsidized housing). Alfie has been to the hospital every day and now keeps a school uniform at his baby's momma's house so he can change in the morning after seeing his daughter. How long do you think that is going to last? How long before the PlayStation looks a lot more inviting than a poopy diaper? Maybe his friends will think that he's a stud for having a kid that young. I really don't know what culture is like in Eastbourne, England but I'm willing to bet that the poor mom will be labeled a slut until she's out of her teens. It should be okay though. She's only two years younger than Bristol Palin so no big deal, right?

Is Kanye a Douche or a Genius? I can't decide.

Sometime he can be super annoying, like at Bonnaroo last year. And then he pulls a gem like this out of his ass and I start to wonder again.

Let me tell you another thing about ... I'm doing a blog right now where I've been collecting all of the freshest stuff that's rainbows — Denver Nuggets jerseys, BAPE shoes, Nikes with rainbows on 'em — and saying, "Man I think as straight men we need to take the rainbow back because it's fresh." It looks fresh. I just think that because stereotypically gay people got such good like style that they were smart enough to take a fresh-ass logo like the rainbow and say that it's gonna be theirs. But I was like "Man I think we need to have the rainbow" — the idea of colors , life and colors and stuff, I mean how is that a gay thing? Colors? Having a lot of colors is gay?

Ranking the Swimsuit Models

Bar Raphaeli is on the cover of this year's swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated and with all the talk about it someone over at InGameNow decided between pulling apart the sticky pages, he'd rank the top 53 models. Can you beleive that they have been publishing these issues since 1964? The first issue debuted while I was still in my mother's womb.

I don't agree with all the choices but it's still a bunch of pictures of hot girls, so enjoy yourself and don't get your computer too nasty with joy juice, especially if you're at work. Unless your boss is Joe Francis, of course. In which case, you can go ahead and kick him in the nuts for me. Thanks.

Rob's New Music Blog

Have you ever gone to library and been overwhelmed by the amount of music there is to choose from? Don't have enough time to wade through it all (who does?) and wish there was someone with good taste and the dedication to do it for you? Well, your prayers have been answered because I have a friend who has done just that. Years ago, he started with the A's and went through their entire music catalogue and now he's back at it. Here is a link to his new blog where he keeps track of his findings and clues everyone in to what is worth your time and what can be overlooked.

Does Roberto Alomar Have AIDS?

I have no idea if this is true or not but the lawsuit sure is real. I am a little confused, though. She doesn't have the virus, so what the hell is she suing for? I would be relieved and grateful, not sue happy.
Here is the story from this morning's Daily News.
Wednesday, February 11th 2009, 9:38 AM

Baseball great Roberto Alomar has full-blown AIDS but insisted on having unprotected sex, his ex-girlfriend charged Tuesday in a bombshell lawsuit.
The shocking claim was leveled by Ilya Dall, 31, who said she lived with the ex-Met for three years and watched in horror as his health worsened.
In papers filed in state and federal court, Dall said Alomar finally got tested in January 2006 while suffering from a cough, fatigue and shingles.
"The test results of him being HIV-positive was given to him and the plaintiff on or about Feb.6, 2006," the $15 million negligence suit says.
Nine days later, the couple went to see a disease specialist who discovered a mass in the retired second baseman's chest, the court papers say.
Alomar's skin had turned purple, he was foaming at the mouth and a spinal tap "showed he had full-blown AIDS," the suit says.
Alomar, 41, who quit baseball over health issues in 2005, could not be reached for comment.
His lawyer, Charles Bach, would not say whether Alomar is HIV-positive. "We believe this is a totally frivolous lawsuit. These allegations are baseless," Bach said. "He's healthy and would like to keep his health status private. We'll do our talking in court."
Alomar's father, Mets bench coach Sandy Alomar, said the claims were news to him. "That's the first time we ever heard of that," he said from Puerto Rico.
He didn't think his son could keep a serious illness secret. "I imagine I would know," he said.
Dall, a mother of two who has run a massage spa in Queens, would not discuss the suit.
"I have no comment," she said outside her lavish home in Whitestone, Queens, after getting out of a black Cadillac Escalade.
She referred inquiries to her lawyer, Anthony Piacentini, who declined to comment.
The suit was filed Jan. 30 in Queens Supreme Court. Alomar had it transferred to Brooklyn Federal Court Tuesday.
The court papers outline the couple's relationship, starting in 2002. A month after they began dating, Alomar convinced Dall to have unprotected sex and assured her he was disease-free, the suit alleges.
In 2004, Dall says she noticed cold sores in his mouth. In 2005, after a physical exam ordered by the Tampa Bay Rays, he was diagnosed with thrombocytopenia purpura, a blood disorder sometimes linked to HIV, she claims.
The doctor told him to have an HIV test and he refused, she says, stating he had been tested and was AIDS-free.
In April 2005, Alomar told Dall he was suffering from erectile dysfunction and confided "he was raped by two Mexican men after playing a ballgame in New Mexico or a Southwestern state when he was 17," the suit says.
It goes on to say that around the same time Alomar developed a persistent cough and was bedridden with extreme fatigue.
He developed thrush, a yeast infection, and was told by a doctor to take an HIV test - but refused, Dall claims.
"I don't have HIV," he told her repeatedly, the suit charges.
A few months later, the couple moved to Cleveland, where Alomar supposedly tested positive. Dall claims that after she learned Alomar had AIDS, she tested negative and no longer had unprotected sex with him.
They broke up last October.
She is demanding at least $15 million in punitive damages, claiming Alomar caused her emotional distress and exposed her children to the virus.
"He jeopardized the health, well-being and life of the plaintiff, which caused her to have a fear of contracting AIDS, often referred to as AIDS phobia," the suit says.
Considered one of baseball's greatest second basemen, Alomar stirred controversy in 1996 by spitting in the face of umpire John Hirschbeck.
The incident prompted fellow ump Al Clark to say, "If I were John, I'd insist that Robbie Alomar take an AIDS test."
HIV has never been transmitted through saliva, however, and last night Hirschbeck said he had no concerns about his safety - or hard feelings from their on-field run-in.
"You're telling me something I'm shocked at," Hirschbeck said. "I wish him nothing but the best."

Michelle Obama on the Cover of Vogue

I've been hearing all these rumors that Vogue is in the shitter and that most women's magazines have lost enormous amounts of advertising. I, for one think they should get their heads out of their asses and stop putting celebrities on the covers. Harper's Bazaar is not People Magazine. If you want info on Kate Hudson or Nicole Kidman there are reams of it in USweekly and OK magazine, not to mention the internet.

So Anna Wintour wakes up one day in a cold sweat from yet another nightmare of losing her job or gaining five pounds and has an epiphany. I'll put the new First Lady on the cover! (Strangely enough, Hillary Clinton was the first to do the honors back in 1998. I would have thought Jackie Kennedy in the 60s.) The article centers on how her life is going to change in the White House and how she will remain a hands on mother to Sasha and Malia. And the dress on the cover is by Jason Wu, the same designer who is responsible for her Inaugural gown.

I like the photo, I like that she put a black person on the cover who isn't named Naomi Campbell, but it's time to start giving the models a break and put them back on the cover where they belong. Not some airbrushed photograph of Jennifer Aniston so she can promote her latest turd of a movie. Give me beauty or give me death!

And that's all I have to say about that.

Australian Fires Produce Some Cute

If you've been reading the news lately you know that Australia is experiencing some devastating forest fires on a scale of the ones we get in California. Sometimes it's easy to forget that there are animals who are losing their homes and dying, not just people. This poor little Koala was a thirsty little bugger when this firefighter caught up with him. I would have totally tried to sneak that sucker into my backpack and charged the neighborhood kids to take a peek at him. Don't judge! Times are tough, people!
I threw in the koala picture I took at the zoo last year. It was so hard to get a picture of his face. He kept turning away from all the noise the rowdy kids were making. Or maybe he looked into my face and saw the eyes of a kidnapper, I really don't know.

We Have a Winner

This cutie pie is a Sussex Spaniel named Stumpy and he beat out the heavily favored Toy Griffon and the Schnauzer. I was pulling for the Tibetan Mastiff from the working group, it was love at first sight for me. That dog had a mane! Unfortunately, the Westminster Kennel Club's website has not been updated with photos or I would have posted pictures of the other breeds that I love.

They added a new breed this year, the Dogue de Bordeaux. It is large like a mastiff with a slightly smaller and more smushed face. They are a gorgeous red color and probably weigh at least 140 pounds. You'd go broke buying this dog his puppy chow but no one would ever fuck with you as long as he was around.

It's Westminster Dog Show Week

New York is going to be full of cute puppies and their loving owners and we get to watch it all on TV. I'll do some research and find out when it's on and on what channel. Our puppie Napa has only recently started watching television with us and she is going to go nuts when she sees this.

Say Goodbye to the Winter Blues

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition comes out today! Everyone I know looks at it. Gay or straight, male or female, it doesn't matter. This year they've included race car driver Danica Patrick again and some of the NBA dancers. There are a couple of butterfaces pictured on the SI website but there are also hotties like Jessica Gomes, in the photo above.

It is almost 60 degrees here in Cleveland right now and I lost 3 pounds this week so I'm going to go try on some bikinis and pretend I'm in Fiji. All I need is some sun and a fruity drink and I will feel this crappy winter wash off of me. Or not. The garbage trucks are really noisy this morning and the piles of snow are kind of ruining my fantasy. Still blech. Oh well. But we can still look at boobies!

SNL Takes on Kellogg's

Screw you, Kellogg's. You didn't rehire a guy because he was caught smoking pot but you had no problem hiring him when he had a DUI conviction. Drunk drivers kill people, not stoners. What a bunch of hypocrites. Did you know that there is a facebook page devoted to boycotting Kellogg's? It might work because it's just a cereal company but I don't think that if it were Taco Bell or Frito Lay it would work. I don't think any stoners could give up something they live on. Here's what Michael Phelps had to say about the SNL bit:

Said Phelps: "I saw the SNL skit [Sunday morning] and I was just dying. We definitely got a huge kick out of it. My mom saw it, my sisters saw it, and everyone was e-mailing each other and sending each other the link, so it was pretty good."

Drag Race Recap

Oh, kids. I truly love this show and enjoyed every second of it. I watched the first episode several times and I suggest that you all Tivo it. It speaks to everything I love and has inspired me to go out to drag shows here in Cleveland (somebody help me and tell me where to go!) to support this art form like I did in my twenties in New York. It is a laugh riot and all of the girls are talented, beautiful and charming. RuPaul is at his finest, combining his looks with his ability to be a mentor that is kind and hilarious at the same time. I'm normally a fan of real reality shows like Deadliest Catch and Storm Chasers but I've seen enough of the other kinds like ANTM and Project Runway to have an appreciation for the genre and this show sends them up in a smart and entertaining way. I hope you like the recap I did for TVgasm, you can let me know how you feel and what you think here or in the comments on the TVgasm website. Cheers! And yay, drag queens!

Tiger Woods has a Baby Boy

Happy news for the man who has absolutely everything, especially now that he has a son. Yeah, he had knee surgery last year, and yeah, he lost his dad but look at his life! Have you ever seen pictures of his home? It's bananas retared fabulous, way beyond anything ever on Cribs. His bedroom is like a cube of glass. I'd hate to be the bitch with the windex up in that place.

His wife is beautiful, he makes so much money from so many endorsements he never has to win another tournament, yet win them he does. Did you notice how all the golfers started working out after Tiger talked about it? They had to or they couldn't compete. I can't wait for him to get back out there. I think his first pairing should be Anthony Kim, the PGA fratboy. He'll keep him loose and laughing.

Anyway, we're probably going to have to wait to see the baby. At least until that million dollar check from People magazine clears.
