1. I didn't think anyone would try to capitalize on the stupidest family in America, but they are. Stay clear of the Balloon Boy costume... please? It's lazy and stupid. Anyone can fill a bag with helium and tie a string to it. I know it seems all trendy and current, but it's not. Hopefully this story will be over in 10 days, anyway.

2. Being the swine flu for Halloween is just about as cool as having the damn thing itself. But, if you have to do it, please tell everyone your outfit composed of a pig's nose and wings is a "when pigs fly" costume. Do it for me, OK?

3. I used to think it was retarded that Burger King charged the public $70.00 to give them free advertising. And I still do. The King is creepy looking and has white tights. And white tights are ugly.

4. Captain Jack Sparrow was done in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and fucking 2008. He's done.

5. Everybody wants to be a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader... including me. However, I would like to point out there's a reason not everyone is.

6. Any woman planning to wear this, and any man planning to wear this, need to understand only two things: there's nothing sexy about a cop in a "cop costume". And there's nothing sexy, or comfortable, about cheap fabric, either. Please, go to your local Army Surplus Store and get the real shit that will last through years and years of playing good cop, bad cop. They should have handcuffs there, too (wink).

7. Thriller, moon-walking, and sequenced gloves are reserved for one man, and one man only. And this cheap shit is not worthy. No, it's not that it's too soon, it's actually too late, pumpkins. Let's try to honor people more while they're still living, mKay?

8. Nobody wants to wait in line in front of, next to, or in back of a person wearing a giant, bulky, spray-paint odored white box with a round circle on the front and apple emblem on the back. iPod costumes kinda piss people off. Ok, wait. They really piss people off.

9. Movies one and two were good. Three was a stretch. And everything beyond that was fucking lame. Nobody's scared of you anymore, Mr. Saw Puppet man.

Thanks Dave!

The Los Angeles Times has created a comprehensive map outlining what sort of gay marriage protections and bans are in place in every state, as well as the dates of bans and history of gay marriage law in the state. Simply hover you mouse over a state and the information pops up.

It is quite an impressive and useful tool for people who want to know each state’s status. There is even a timeline of gay marriage battles across the U.S. To view the map, click here.

A petitioner for one of Gainesville's most anti-gay campaigns, in which images of men creeping into ladies rooms were used as a scare tatic against transgender rights, has been arrested for, you guessed it, crawling into ladies' AND FILMING THEM. Well, actually, it was placing his phone, with the video camera on, under a pile of tissue and aiming it at the toily pot... but same diff:
The CVS Pharmacy manager who allegedly admitted Friday to filming women in his store's bathroom was an active participant in the 2008 charter amendment to "keep men out of women's restrooms." Jonathan Matheny, 27, was charged with one count of video voyeurism after a customer told police she had discovered a cell phone equipped with a camera under a pile of tissues in the CVS bathroom at 125 S.W. 34th St. Police are looking for other victims. The petition drive in the summer of 2008 was aimed at a city ordinance that provided rights, including equal access to public accommodation, for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals. Matheny signed the petition, according to records with the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Office, and opponents of the charter amendment say they received reports that Matheny allowed the petitions to be distributed and signed at his store. Those behind the drive said the amendment was essential to prevent men from using the public-accommodation portion of the law to enter women's restrooms and film, rape or otherwise prey on the opposite sex.
The repeal failed. But this is another classic and perfectly orchestrated move for the bigots in the world, by the bigots in the world.

Gymnast Eike Von Stuckenbrock, 20, is appearing in something called Soap Show, in which he twists and bends his body in every shape imaginable. This is the first time I've heard of him, and I thoroughly thank Boy Culture for the introduction. Besides his ability to do the amazing things gymnasts do, I found it really fascinating (and totally handy!) that he can open a beer bottle... with his shoulder blades:

Brandon Patrick of Tulsa, OK was attacked by a group of three people, who before the attack taunted him with anti-gay remarks, while walking to a friend's house:
Three people followed Patrick down the 1300 block of South Rockford Avenue about 11:45 p.m., yelling homophobic slurs and threats, he said. Patrick, who is gay, said he ignored the group until they closed in and then asked why they were accosting him without provocation. The assailants then started beating, biting and slashing at Patrick with a blade, he said, leaving him with several cuts on his head and body. The 23-year-old has been peppered with insults before, but he said he never thought they would escalate to violence. 'I've never felt scared or feared for my safety before,' he said. 'You brush it off and walk on. That's what you're taught to do. This time, it didn't work.' Tulsa Police Officer Leland Ashley said the people who are accused of attacking Patrick are at large and were seen in a maroon Ford Mustang from the late 1990s or early 2000s. Patrick described them as a woman in her early 40s and another woman and man, both in their late teens or early 20s.
Queerty has gotten their hands on some additional photos (very graphic photos) from the beating and some words from Brandon's partner, Sam Raines:
They started out by calling him a faggot as he was walking down the street minding his own business and they told him not to look at them….but he didn't even look in their direction. As he went around the corner they got in their vehicle which was a mustang late 90's early 00 model and sped toward him and the male got out of the car. he then punched him in the back of his head and that's when he started to have to defend himself. He kept telling them just to leave him alone and go about their business… As he was restraining the male the older of the 2 females came at him and bit his cheek and began to saw at his head with a knife…then ended up stabbing him in the knee!

K2 Productions, the company behind Miss California USA, is suing the former Miss California, saying she owes them $5200 for breast implants, among other things:
Ex-Miss California Carrie Prejean stiffed pageant organizer K2 Productions even though she requested the surgery 'to be more competitive' at the April 2009 Miss USA pageant and verbally agreed to repay the K2 loan, a complaint filed yesterday states...The new suit accuses Prejean of missing events, lying about semi-nude photos, negotiating an unauthorized book deal and using her title without authorization to help promote the National Organization for Marriage's "campaign of intolerance" against gay marriage. K2 asks for the proceeds from Prejean's planned book, the $5,200 from the breast surgery and other relief.
Adds Keith Lewis:
We are saddened by the necessity to file a counter-claim today against Carrie Prejean...We are continuing to prepare for our upcoming telecast of the Miss California USA pageant on November 22nd, but the integrity of the Miss California USA organization and the values it represents requires us to respond and present the truth. Our claim is not about financial reward, and all profits awarded will be donated to a charity that promotes the values of our organization.

Sorry, and even after this, I'm still not a fan.


A really tactless, tasteless, and offensive Halloween display has been been put up by a gay couple in West Hollywood. It features Maggie Gallagher, nude, with the words "LIAR" written across her belly, and Carrie Prejean sliced up into pieces:
More about what’s on the roof this year, according to the pair, who work in the window display business: As noted, there’s a mannequin with a photo of Gallager, President of the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy (And NOM), an organization that opposes gay marriage. She’s also has the word liar written on her stomach. 'The reason that she is naked is that we are exposing her lies,' says Morrissette, who calls her a hypocrite for statements he says that she made about educating children about gay marriage. Glinda, the good witch, is also on the roof, standing next to a Mormon missionary (he's stuck in a chimney and on fire). Glinda is there to counteract all the evil of the rest of the characters....including Carrie Prejean, the Miss USA 2009 contestant. She's the gal who said she believed that marriage should be between a man and a woman--and she's shown chopped in half and bloodied. Prejean is a 'victim of Gallagher's,' according to Morrissette, because he says her image has been used by the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy. Still, Morrissette said he 'doesn’t know how entrenched' Prejean is with Gallagher's group.
Even though the couple tries to explain they are using Halloween as a way to fight homophobia, it just isn't right. Maggie with two horns and a pointed tail would have done just fine. Last year, the couple made headlines with their Sarah Palin in a noose display.

For the first time in more than 35 years, the U.S. military has met all of its annual recruiting goals, as hundreds of thousands of young people have enlisted despite the near-certainty that they will go to war.

The Pentagon, which made the announcement Tuesday, said the economic downturn and rising joblessness, as well as bonuses and other factors, had led more qualified youths to enlist.

The military has not seen such across-the-board successes since the all-volunteer force was established in 1973, after Congress ended the draft following the Vietnam War. In recent years, the military has often fallen short of some of its recruiting targets. The Army, in particular, has struggled to fill its ranks, admitting more high school dropouts, overweight youths and even felons.

Yet during the current budget year, which ended Sept. 30, recruiters met their targets in both numbers and quality for all components of active-duty and reserve forces.

Yes, these photos do deserve a second look! VGL has posted more of beefy Lance's previous shoot with Braden Summers.

This is a fight, and as I said in one of my songs 'there is no end to the war between me and faggot' and it's clear. The same night after I met with them (gay associates), they pepper-sprayed the concert. So what are you trying to tell me? I owe dem nothing, they don't owe I nothing.
Banton admits the only reason he met with the leaders was because supervisor, Bevan Dufty, asked him to:
It is not about boxing food out my mouth, if a that I would have surrendered to the system a long time ago. The mayor of San Francisco, or the mayor-to-be, claimed that I was in his district and that it was imperative for him and his organisation to meet with me to further see what kind of personality or character (I have).
Banton plans to continue on with his tour, despite countless cancellations, which he says have not hurt him:
I have two-and-a-half more weeks and let me tell you this, if a show has been cancelled or postponed by this group of people, it has been picked up and replaced in another venue. Let the struggle continue. Pray for I, don't cry for I.
Justify FullBanton's L.A. show, which was initially cancelled, was rebooked on the DL. A protest was reportedly held in front of the Cabana Club last night.

According to his trainer, Levi has been chowing down on a lot of moose meat in preperation for his shoot with Playgirl:
Moose meat is very good for you, high in protein and very lean. He's an avid hunter, so he has his own. I'm not trying to give him a body builder's look. He's going to be more toned and more defined. I'd like to see him with rounder and more muscular shoulders, with a fuller chest. We're going to firm his abs up, [and give him a] smaller waist. I know that's something he wants to do and we're having fun training. We're looking forward to revealing all his hard work!
Playgirl's spokesperson Daniel Nardicio has confirmed the contracts have been sent off to Levi and they are only waiting on his signature. Nardicio has also confirmed the contract has no stipulations as to how much, or what, skin will be photographed. Those decisions will be made on location during the shoot.

Queen's College Point neighborhood saw several hundred people rally against hate (and also saw some supporters of the bashing) yesterday, following the brutal attack on a gay man last week.
Price’s sister-in-law, Joanne Guarneri, marched arm-and-arm with City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Congressman Anthony Weiner, City Comptroller William Thompson, Jr., Queens Borough President Helen Marshall and other politicians, activists and local residents down College Point Avenue. She also spoke at a rally at a local park. 'They [Aleman and Rodriguez] nearly beat my brother-in-law to death for $10 and a pack of cigarettes,' Guarneri said. 'We have to stop violence in College Point. We have to take back our streets.' Amanda Guarneri echoed her mother’s anger before she and other members of her family marched. 'They [Aleman and Rodriguez] are a disgrace,' the 15-year-old told EDGE. 'They should be locked up forever. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy.
There were about a dozen counter-protesters across the street and behind police barricades:
More than a dozen Rodriguez supporters, some holding signs saying "Free Danny," watched the rally from behind police barricades across the street. 'This whole rally is so pathetic,' said Camelisse Kiana, 15, a friend of Rodriguez. 'I don't think this is a hate crime because he doesn't have nothing against gay people.' Price told the Daily News Friday the two men peppered him with anti-gay slurs during the attack."
Nice Camelisse... nice: "he doesn't have nothing against gay people." What, exactly, does he have nothing of? I mean, we know you lack skills in speaking English. But him? Explain, if you could...

It's quite odd seeing a counter-protest at a rally like this. I've never heard of it before... and I can't quite pinpoint what they're hoping to accomplish by doing it. Are they trying to clear his name of a hate crime, or a crime altogether?

The alleged father of Daniel Rodriguez, Daniel Rodriguez Sr., also spoke out asking for mercy on his son:
I caused him the harm. The minute I stopped being a father to my son, I hurt him. And for those who have already judged my son, I say, show mercy...I'm sorry. I want to say sorry to Mr. Price and his family. [My son] doesn't hate. We didn't bring him up that way. To hate others, you know?

It doesn't come as much of a surprise that the "Balloon Boy" and his brothers participated in a rap video that talks about stoning gay men and "pussification". Only something like this could come from a family who created a media frenzy, wasted countless hours of other peoples' time, and cost the state of Colorado thousands of unnecessary dollars after reporting their 6-year old son was aboard an out of control helium balloon floating 10,000 feet above the ground in Ft. Collins, Colorado. At the 2.30 mark, you can see the kids singing the following lyrics:
I look up in the tree. What do I see? I see a faggot trying to pee (?) on me. I pick up a rock. Threw it at his cock." The rest is unintelligible, but it has something to do with sending the faggot to a doctor where he is taken care of.
The media-whore family will most likely be charged for the balloon incident. Criminally charged, that is.

An organization known as FAIR (Freedom Action Inclusion Rights) will be hosting an online auction with celebrity-signed prints of Shepard Fairey's "Defend Equality Love Unites" posters. Amongst the participants is actor and musician Jared Leto, who took an original approach to the project.

Rather than just sign the poster, Leto copied the text from the Proposition 8 ballot initiative onto the poster. Then he burned it. The ashes will be auctioned off in a glass urn, inscribed with the text--"Here lies within, the remains of Proposition 8, may it rest in peace."

Other stars participating in the auction include Chelsea Handler, Kim Kardashian, Scarlett Johansson and Twilight star Anna Kendrick. Aside from Leto, my favorite treatment came from comedian Sarah Silverman, who scribbled on the poster "Peace, poop and penis". I mean, isn't that the American way?

Here's one for all your online profiles fellas!

If you could walk up to any celebrity and slap them in their stupid face, who would it be and why?
