Meme: George Takei Meets Dick Tracy, Prince Harry Finally Speaks About Naked Pictures, and Neil Patrick Harris Is a Monster!

George Takeisnicks will be bringing you a liveblog of Days of Our Lives today and tomorrow, and you don’t want to miss anything from WilSon.

With his focus on climate change, gay rights, women’s rights and gun control, many are saying that President Obama is finally preparing to govern from the left as we always hoped he would.

George Takei has joined Dick Tracy for the next two months as George Tawara in a storyline centering around a recovered Japanese internment camp. His husband Brad also appears in the comic strip that I didn’t know still existed.

Scott Evans, our fabulous FUB and brother to Chris, has pled guilty to attempted cocaine possession stemming from his arrest after trying to make a purchase from an undercover cop last month. Scott, who won our hearts on One Life To Live, changed his plea to guilty from not guilty in exchange for a deal that means no jail time, and an expunged record after he completes 60 Narcotics Anonymous meetings. He’s anxious to put it behind him, and has already attended several of the required meetings.

Canada has debuted a new high tech $20 bill made of a polymer. But scientists have a small problem with the maple leaf featured on the bill. They claim it’s the Norway Maple, which is an Don Jon's Addictioninvasive species to Canada. The Canadian government claims it’s a blend of several different maple leaves, but nobody is buying it.

Relativity Media has acquired Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Don Jon’s Addiction for a healthy $4 million, plus advertising commitments and a promise of a wide release. Morgan, go buy your tickets now.

Prince Harry is returning from Afghanistan, and he’s opened up about the fighting, plus those naked pictures in Las Vegas. “I probably let myself down, I let my family down, I let other people down. But at the end of the day, I was in a private area and there should be a certain amount of privacy that one should expect. It was probably a classic example of me probably being too much army, and not enough prince. It’s a simple case of that.”

An early Keith Haring mural has been unearthed in a TriBeCa mansionette, done when the space was for student exhibitions, using only shoe polish and alcohol. It’s classic Haring, but won’t come cheap since the home is selling for $11.75 million. It should come with a clause forbidding the destruction of the art.

The James Franco parody of Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” disappeared from the web almost as fast as it was posted, James Francoand it seems that’s because someone called Franco and asked that it come down. Franco says that it wasn’t Bieber himself, but “I don’t think he was too happy.”

Do men really have higher sex drives than women? Yes and no. What about same-sex couples? “They found that gay men had higher frequencies of sex than lesbians at all stages of relationships. Within the first 2 years of a relationship, for example, two thirds of the gay men but only one third of the lesbians were in the maximum category of having sex three or more times per week (the highest frequency category). After 10 years together, 11% of the gay men but only 1% of the lesbians were still in that category of highly frequent sex. At the other extreme, after 10 years nearly half the lesbians, but only a third of the gay men, were having sex less than once a month. Even that difference may be a substantial underestimate of the discrepancy in sexual activity: Blumstein and Schwartz reported that the gay men who had largely ceased having sex after 10 years together were often having sex with other partners, whereas the lesbians who had ceased having sex together had generally not compensated for this deficit by finding other sexual outlets.

Chris MearsOlympic diver Chris Mears, who appears on the cover of the new Gay Times Naked Issue this month says that he has a lot of gay friends, thanks to his buddy Tom Daley. “I’m trying to steal his gay fan base by doing this shoot for GT! I have no issues at all being around gay people and I know a few people through Tom who are gay and I’m good friends with them. I’ve got quite a few gay followers of my own through Twitter – I went from 1,000 before the Olympics to 110,000 after it. And I’ve had a couple of funny suggestions, normally guys asking for foursomes with me, Tom and Jack Laugher.”

Benedict Cumberbatch has a lot of costumes in Star Trek Into Darkness, but a few are more revealing than others. “The costumes look great. Some of them were very cumbersome and heavy, but some were very snug. You can almost see what religion I am.”

President Obama’s inaugural address made a strong backing of equal rights. “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.” The President also referenced Stonewall in the same sentence as Selma.

But I thought Spongebob was gay?

I know that Movie 43 probably has no redeeming qualities, and the stars of the film seem to have refused to promote it, but I’m oddly excited. Sure, it’s going to be offensive, and yes, judging by this new NSFW red band trailer it has some gay jokes, but most of the cast is very gay friendly, so context matters. Besides, who doesn’t want to see a movie that caused Geroge Clooney to respond to Peter Farrelly with “No f–king way.” when he asked him to appear in it.


R’ha is a student film by 22-year-old Kaleb Lechowski that really is mindblowing, and reportedly has garnered some interest from Hollywood studios. It amazes me that the technology is now so advanced that a student can produce this by himself. I remember when it took a room full of computers to give us the dancing baby on Ally McBeal.


James Franco is staying on message at Sundance with the idea that he made Kink and Interior. Leather Bar (not to mention Lovelace) because he finds it ridiculous that certain types of sex can be seen onscreen, while others can’t.


The East has Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgård in a world where Ellen’s group, much like Anonymous, is seeking to restore balance between the 1% and the rest of the population. Mostly I care because it has Alexander Skarsgård.
