Dylan O’Brien Injured On Set, Plus Roger Federer, Pet Shop Boys: BRIEFS

"The Birdcage" 20 years later.

Here is last week’s caption pic winner. This week’s caption pic is at the bottom of the page.

Cardboard cut outs of the faces of three candidates for the Republican nomination for the 2016 US Presidential election (L-R) Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio, are seen set up on urinals in a pub in London on March 1, 2016 as part of an informal poll for customers to log which they dislike the most. Part of the satirical television show The Last Leg, customers at the pub are able to choose which urinal to use and then log their poll on a list on the wall afterwards. / AFP / JUSTIN TALLIS        (Photo credit should read JUSTIN TALLIS/AFP/Getty Images)

Colton Haynes posted this flashback of him and Tyler Hoechlin that could either be from Halloween or a typical Colton day.

“I’m sure I’ve posted this pic a few times but it makes me die laughin every time. So stoked to see my bud @tylerl_hoechlin new movie Everybody Wants Some!!!”

Colton’s former co-star Dylan O’Brien is recovering after being injured on the set of Maze Runner: Death Cure.

“O’Brien apparently fell off the back of a set that was supposed to look like the back of a train and fractured either his cheekbone or orbital socket (still not clear on the details) when he fell on his face. The production has been shut down “while he recovers,” the studio says.”


Like a lot of people, George Takei was not happy with the racial stereotyping in the Oscar broadcast.

Today The Pet Shop Boys released the audio for “The Pop Kids (The Full Story)” from their upcoming album Super. I’m pretty sure this is the first dance song in history to include the words “clinical biologist.”

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay and bisexual celebs who deserve more recognition.

This week our 157th ShoutOUT™ is to … Larry Sullivan

campbells-800

Closing out our week with Larry, last week we featured his husband David Monahan, and mentioned how the two became huge viral stars when their Campbell’s soup Star Wars commercial came out last year, and helped lead to roles (as a married couple) on HBO’s upcoming series Big Little Lies alongside Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Alexander Skarsgård.

But Larry continues to have a diverse and eclectic career. Here he is in the short film Gay Baby from a few years ago, as a straight father devastated when he learns his unborn son is going to be gay (they’ve pinpointed the gay gene now, as you can see).

 

 


Over the next few weeks we’ll have a lot of fun looking at 20 Songs Everyone Knows That Didn’t Hit The Top 40! These are all songs that have become a part of pop culture history, but failed on the chart when they were originally released. Songs that, through inclusion in films, TV, or other medium have managed to withstand the test of time.

Note – We’ll also include a couple of songs that were never actually released a singles, but have also become classics.

At #6 is “Heroes” by David Bowie

81VycvvC49L._SL1300_

The second Bowie song on the list was released in September 1977, and would go on to become not only one of his signature songs, but one of the usual suspects whenever a “Greatest Songs Of All Time” list is released.

So explain to me how it only peaked at #12 on the UK chart, and even more inexplicably, was released as a single in the U.S. but failed to hit the Hot 100. Was there some kind of Bowie backlash back then?
