Jamie Dornan visited a sex dungeon, Fandom, The Musical, Justice Thomas accepts Florida’s request for a stay on marriage equality
Charlie Hunnam says that we won’t be seeing any hacked nudes of him show up on the internet from his iPhone. “I just got an iPhone last year. I love Apple products, but I don’t use the cloud. I don’t trust it, so you won’t find any nude photos from me personally. It’s much more likely that I’d be followed somewhere and had taken off all my clothes to jump in a pool of water on a hike or something.” Note to self: Take up hiking.
The Supreme Court has accepted Florida’s petition for a stay of the marriage equality ruling, and has requested responses by Thursday at 5PM. It appears Justice Thomas intends to rule on the stay himself, without the full court, which means he’ll likely rule in favor as he’s expressed dissatisfaction with how the Court has dealt with other requests for stays.
The latest in the Sony hack case is that the Guardians of Peace have made a threat that appears to be violence at movie theaters showing The Interview. “We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places The Interview be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to,” the posting by the Guardians of Peace reads. “Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made. The world will be full of fear. Remember the 11th of September 2001.” The promised scale seems to be large, as they also warn the public to “keep yourself distant from the places at that time. If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.”
Not only did The Imitation Game lose a sex scene from an early draft, the filmmakers also cut a death scene for Turing that was actually filmed. “As a writer, I was obsessed with the idea that this should be the last scene, but when we first saw it in the assembly cut, it fell really flat. It just felt like the movie was reciting biographic information at you, and our guiding principle for the movie is that if you were learning information, it had to come from a character place.”
To get ready for Fifty Shades of Grey, Jamie Dornan visited a sex dungeon. “I went there, they offered me a beer, and they did… whatever they were into. I saw a dominant with one of his two submissives. I was like: ‘Come on guys I know I’m not paying for this but I am expecting a show.’”
The Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade has approved OutVets to march in 2015. The group will be allowed to carry a banner with five stars representing the five services, alongside rainbow stripes. The parade is quick to note OutVets was approved as a veterans group, not an LGBT group. “This conforms to the tenets of the parade. The parade is devoted to honoring the service of veterans. It’s is our aim to honor that service and the history of the Irish Catholics in Boston. Anything that detracts from that is verboten.”
Natalie Morales will join Thomas Roberts, who is again hosting the Miss Universe pageant. This time it’s being held in Florida, rather than Russia.
Could 2016 be Clinton v Bush for the presidency? Jeb Bush has announced that he will actively explore the possibility of running for president, and is forming a PAC to facilitate that.
The Ninth Circuit has upheld a Los Angeles law that requires porn companies to use condoms in productions, saying it does not violate the First Amendment. “Here, we agree with the district court that, whatever unique message plaintiffs might intend to convey by depicting condomless sex, it is unlikely that viewers of adult films will understand that message.” Without addressing the merits of condoms in porn, what the law has factually done is drive down permits for porn shoots in Los Angeles County 85%. It’s unknown if shoots have left the area, or are simply shooting underground to avoid compliance with the law, but it’s fair to say that the law hasn’t actually increased condom use in porn.
Tim Burton says that a sequel to Beetlejuice is closer than you think, and it will have Michael Keaton, and definitely a role for Winona Ryder.
PolitiFact has named their Lie of the Year again, and this time it’s less specific than usual. Last year, it was President Obama’s statement “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” This year, they’re charging Fox News and Republicans with spreading fear about the contagion risk for Ebola. It also calls out the news media in general for dropping coverage of Ebola after cases stopped being reported in the U.S.
Hulk Hogan says that the wrestling world has dropped their “barbaric” portrayals of gays, and to him, being gay was always normal. “At least for me — and I can only speak from my heart — I’ve got people all around me who are gay, so it’s not an issue with me. I think the whole world feels like that now.” He also talks about his friend and fellow wrestler Pat Patterson who came out in June of this year, but his being gay is something Hogan has known since 1976. “I knew Pat was gay back in 1976, when he helped me start wrestling. Whenever I see Pat, I give him a big hug and kiss. He’s my guy! Back when Pat was wrestling, he was afraid to be who he really is — or was meant to be — because of all this stuff he inherited from society. You’re supposed to be this tough wrestler.’ ’You’re supposed to be this good-looking, platinum blonde champion who goes out and dates the best looking women.’ ’You’re supposed to be this.’ ’You’re supposed to be that.’ But that’s not true! Pat Patterson is supposed to be who he’s meant to be, not who people think he should be, if that makes any sense.”
Archie is coming back. And with a new look for Archie, Jughead, Veronica and Betty. While Kevin Keller has been confirmed for the series, his artwork hasn’t been released. But as for the main gang, this is definitely a new look. I wonder if this is the aesthetic they’ll use for the movie?
Bilbo Baggins (Andrew Keenan-Bolger) is sad because his role is ending, and he’s worried that the fans will forget him. But in this musical tribute to fandoms, he’s reassured by Harry Potter, Darth Vader, Jack Sparrow and more that not only will he live on in his fandom, franchises never end, and he could be back for prequels, sequels, and reboots at any time. This may be one of the more awesome things on the internet today.
Bryan Fischer says that the Gay Agenda is the single greatest threat to liberty that this nation has ever seen. I feel so powerful!
You’re probably familiar with the fact that Emily Blunt & John Krasinski prank Jimmy Kimmel every Christmas. And Jimmy pranks back. It’s gone from humble holiday decorations in the living room to giant inflatables to Jimmy wrapping Emily and John’s entire house last year. Which meant the stakes had to be raised this year. This is why you never give your spare keys to your neighbor that has nearly unlimited funds available from the syndication of The Office.
