Thanks to virgo108 for this week’s winning caption!

  • Weekend Birthdays! (Note: Birthday shoutouts are for out entertainers, allies, or for any celeb that seems to have a following on AE). Lance Bass (above) is 33, Marilyn Martin is 58, Ann B. Davis is 86, Tammy Wynette would have been 70, Kyan Douglas is 42, Bob Seger is 67, George Clooney is 51, Keith Haring would have been 54, and a very Happy 58th Birthday to my beloved faboo Pia Zadora. In addition to her classic films, she’s also my favorite music video artist of the 80’s. “Little Bit of Heaven” is the 2nd greatest music video of the decade, and if you’ve never experienced it, you can check it out here. The homoeroticism drips off the screen.

  • As I mentioned, Keith Haring would have been 54 today, and Google is paying tribute as only they can.

  • Beastie Boy Adam Yauch has died of cancer at the age of 47. I remember when Beastie Boys exploded on the scene, and what homophobic brats they were. But then they … grew up, and eventually apologized to the gay community for the harm they caused. How often do you see that? R.I.P.
  • In today’s LOL, “Exodus Cancels Next ‘Love Won Out’ Conference Due to Lack of Interest.”
  • Missouri state Rep. Zach Wyatt talks to Lawrence O’Donnell about coming out … and being a Republican.

  • Molly Ringwald will have a lesbian fling on The Secret Life Of The American Teenager, with a character named Willowdine. Damn, I was so hoping she’d be named Blair.
  • Below you can see the trailer for Syfy’s Jersey Shore Shark Attack which debuts on Saturday June 9th. Look for my review here in the briefs on Friday the 8th. This could be a classic.

  • Adele turns 24 this weekend. What are your faves? Here are mine: 5. “Someone Like You,” 4. “Rolling in the Deep,” 3. “Rumour Has it,” 2. “Chasing Pavements,” and though I usually despise covers, she gives me chills with #1.
  • Congrats to T, who was the first to correctly guess that yesterday’s Pixuzzle™ © ® was Toy Story

  • Here’s today’s Pixuzzle™ © ®. Below you can see characters from a famous film. Can you name it?

And today’s Briefs are brought to you by…
