Join us this afternoon for a liveblog of WilSon and Gack from Days of Our Lives with our very own snicks.
Also, be sure to join me on Twitter Sunday night for all the goings on at the Grammy Awards. It might be interesting, even with all the wardrobe rules that CBS rolled out at the last minute.

Indiana lawmakers have postponed a vote to place a constitutional amendment against marriage equality on the ballot until next year, citing the pending Supreme Court decisions.
Chace Crawford says that while he hasn’t read Fifty Shades of Grey, he’d be up for playing the title role. When asked if he’d be up for all the S&M sex involved, he jokingly (we assume) said “I am only comfortable with S&M sex scenes! The other ones are just too simple and boring for me.”
Sex.com has offered NFL player Rob Gronkowski $3.75 million to film a sex scene for them. He’s already posed naked for ESPN magazine, so why not?
The manhunt continues for former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner. Dorner left a vicious manifesto online, saying that lesbian police officers were high value targets, while expressing his love for Ellen DeGeneres. He also sent a package to Anderson Cooper with a coin with three bullet holes in it.
Justin Timberlake has been named the creative director of Bud Light Platinum, whatever that means. Based on “Suit & Tie” alone, I’m now hoping he focuses on that and forgets music for a while again.
Rumor has it that the entire script for Justice League has been scrapped, and they’ll start over from scratch if Man of Steel is a success.
I just want to be the first at
AfterElton.com TheBackLot.com to say “Not It” if this gets made and needs recapped.
I would have normally skipped over any press release about a new show on TLC, especially one set in a trailer park in Myrtle Beach, but it does mention that among the colorful residents of Welcome to Myrtle Manor are drag queens.
Tony Perkins seems to be claiming he met with the management of Wal-Mart and got them to agree to cease funding any pro-gay groups. There are some problems with that idea, because 1) To my knowledge, Wal-Mart doesn’t like the gays; 2) Wal-Mart would never agree to allow him to talk publicly about such a deal, it’s terrible business, even from a company with low gay appeal.
President Obama has nominated Todd Hughes of the Justice Department to the Federal Court of Appeals, which if confirmed, would make him the first openly gay judge to sit on the Appeals bench.
Michigan has begun cross referencing HIV infections with previous partners, which could lead to legal problems if they can find a “patient zero” who didn’t disclose their status.
In the UK, 16-year-old Anthony Stubb, a bisexual teenage father has hung himself in the woods after years of bullying. We have got to stop losing kids.
Ryan Gosling and Matt Smith are going to costar in How To Catch a Monster, a movie about a young mother drawn into a dark fantasy world after her son discovers a road into an underwater town. The internet may not survive. Certainly Tumblr is doomed. Do we ship it? Of course we do!
Andy Kelso models the shirts for the first day of rehearsals for Kinky Boots in NYC
Steve Aoki prepares to DJ for the opening of Ollie’s club on Arrow
Jake Shears’ husbro caught him in bed with the other man

Oh, and last night during Glee, Adam Lambert RT’d me
Sacha Sacket grew up in Iran. He was bullied and isolated. But he was touched by the story of Jamey Rodemeyer, who took his own life after being bullied. Sacket wrote “Song for Jamey” in a single sitting, and it’s part of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles tour right now, and it’s stunning. h/t Towleroad.
Del Marquis isn’t taking his time off from Scissor Sisters and catching a tan, he’s recorded a mixtape, and the first video from it is called “Let me Tickle Your Fancy,” and boy does it ever. A very 80s feel to the video, with a hot go-go boy, it’s NSFW, but so fun to watch.
Al Jazeera English takes a look at the changing face of GLBT rights in Asia, and some of the advances that are being made in marriage and transgender rights in particular. The good news is that things are changing. The bad news is that there is still a long way to go in many countries.
Li Hongbo is a Chinese artist who does absolutely stunning things with paper. I seriously can’t even begin to describe this, you’ll just have to watch for yourself. This is Neil Patrick Harris endorsed stuff.
The history of condoms is a little longer than I perhaps imagined, and even goes through a phase in which they were as thick as bicycle tires, which honestly sounds like a major boner killer to me. Still, it’s fascinating to see how things have evolved over the years for something we depend on so much these days.
I’m not entirely sure that these bar tricks designed to impress the ladies would be that effective in a gay bar, where more emphasis is placed on your abs and your biceps. But I can see pulling a few of them off to impress my bros.
