Morning Meme: Captain Jack’s “Man Sex,” John Krasinski Checks Into Chateau Marmont, and Panthro’s “Thundercats” Cabaret

John Barrowman talks about the new season of Torchwood: Miracle Day, saying “I’m naked in one episode – I
am full-on naked. I am John Barrowmanbumping and grinding in this one. I am having man sex.
The true die-hard fans know Jack is omnisexual – he likes men and women. People
who tune into this series will just think Jack is gay, because he just has
full-on man sex. It was really fun. One day, I get to shoot a helicopter and
save the world, and a couple of days later, I get to have sex with a
24-year-old. It’s the most perfect job in the world.”

At a fundraiser last night in New York City, President Obama said that marriage should be left to the states. So much for his opinion “evolving.” I can’t begin to express how offended I am that a man whose own parents’ interracial marriage was made possible by a federal court ruling is taking the Tea Party route on the issue..

JK Rowling has
unveiled Pottermore. It’s as confusing as it is revolutionary. Basically, it’s
an ebook store, with Rowling selling her own works via ebook, with no publisher
in between. No DRM, just trust. There’s also a social experience around the
books, with the ability to join Hogwarts houses, get original content, and
interact with other Potter fans. Some people think it could change the face of

Aaron Sorkin and John Krasinski are teaming up to develop a mini series about the legendary Chateau
Marmont, Curtis Stonehome and party palace for everyone from Jean Harlow to Lindsay Lohan.

Lindsay Price is pregnant. If you’re going “Who?” like I was,
she’s the fortunate soul that gets to sleep with celebrity chef/hunk Curtis Stone.

Over at E! they’re voting for the Best Kiss of the last television season, and
you can vote for the kiss that almost caused me to wreck the car when my phone
nearly exploded – Kurt and Blaine.

For an outside perspective on my favorite new website, Animals Being Dicks,
we get ANIMALNewYork, who loves it, with this qualifier: “So, let’s make a quick
distinction here. Dogs are hilarious jerks. Cats are just assholes. Oh yeah, I
went there.”

Will Smith is reportedly courting Emma
to adapt Annie as a starring vehicle for his
daughter Willow.

The Great Speedup is going on all around you, particularly in the United
States. You’re now doing the Dante's Covejobs that used to take several people, but you’re
not being paid more. And you’re not really good at it, but you’re good enough
to up corporate profits. How did we get here?

The Williams Institute is chewing its way through the 2010 Census Data on same-sex
couples on a state-by-state basis (trust me, they send a LOT of press
releases). But it is fascinating to see how many are raising children, and how
it seems more common in more rural areas.

In news that I totally missed, and shocked me, Here! has announced new television development, including a new
eight episode season of Dante’s Cove called Dante’s
Cove: Book of Tresum
, set to debut late fall. NowRyan Kwanten if only my cable
system still carried Here!

True Blood’s Ryan
says he doesn’t work out for the show – he works out to
stay sane. He’s always been active, and as one of three boys, was always on the
move, even the time he got gummed by a shark.

Cory Monteith had a wild youth that included a lot of drugs, and stealing
from his family to pay for the habit. Some tough love and rehab set him
straight though, and it’s how he got into acting.

Sofia Vergara has had to drop out of The Paperboy with Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron and Tobey Maguire because the camera couldn’t handle all the beauty.
No, seriously, the dates slipped and she has to get back to Modern Family,
which is for the best.


So Justin Bieber was at Macy’s launching a fragrance just before Johnny Weir’s appearance. And this picture happened, and the pop culture universe may have imploded.

I haz cheeseburger!

Spy hunk Eddie McClintock brings out the big guns for the new season of Warehouse 13 – literally! The Tesla rifle.

But we need to assess the moobs for the new season, so doff the shirt!

Presenting without comment. Or awareness.

Anderson Cooper was in a wetsuit today. That is all.

Pixar finally released character sketches for Brave . I think I’m going to like the blue-faced dude.

Logo’s own Jonathan D. Lovitz is in Houston to be the Grand Marshall of Pride. And they gave him a medal – for being gay! Who knew you could win the gold for that?

Seriously, I’d have to be a platinum award winner at this point.

Here’s the first picture of Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit. I used to hit Bilbo Baggins restaurant for the gayest, highest calorie brunch when I lived in Old Town Alexandria. Fabulous place. I wonder if it’s still around?

I may have gotten off topic there for a bit.

Neil Gaiman is a bit of an odd creature. Quite British, he’s been in America for nearly 20 years, and he’s still fascinated by how strange we are. It’s what inspired American Gods, which is now celebrating it’s 10th anniversary. So what’s strange about America?


I’ll just admit it – I’ve always had a bit of a crush on Drake Bell. He’s a hot little dude, and he’s got some talent, musically. Here’s the new video for his song “Terrific” which is not what I’d expect from a Nickelodeon star.


So Target has put out an It Gets Better video. The cynic in me says this is about damage control, and the cynic is probably right. But why the company produced it is less important than the message from the employees, and I have to admit, these are good messages. While I’m still not shopping at Target, I’m glad this is out there. Also – is the blond in the plaid single?


This is a goose parade. Why they’re on parade I don’t know. Perhaps Goose Pride? I’ve heard that this is in Belgium, but can’t confirm that. Can any of my European readers explain this to me?


This is a Literal Drug Commercial, and it’s brilliant. Why do we allow drug companies to advertise in the United States? Are consumers qualified to “ask our doctor?”


This is a trailer for Killer Elite, and it has Robert De Niro, along with Jason Statham beating up Clive Owen. I think the idea is a battle between hitmen, but that’s just a loose premise to string together action scenes


This is the trailer for Football Cops, by DirectTV. It stars Eli and Peyton Manning, and I’m unclear if they actually intend to make this into something for the fall, or if it’s pure spoof


Watch closely, because these surfers are not alone in the water.



I really don’t know what to make of this. I’m certainly fond of Thundercats, and I do get it if they had to make a living between the old series and the upcoming show, so I can’t judge how they did that. But seriously – Panthro has a cabaret act?




Opinionated. You'll love to hate me
