Morning Meme: Disappointing “Glee” Spoilers, Jimmy Kimmel Steals Candy From Babies, and James Bond’s “Skyfall”

I’m just going to go ahead and get this over with: TV Line has basically the entire episode of Glee
next week spoiled, from the musical to Sebastian and BlaineSebastian,
to yes, Klaine’s special moment.
Which sounds like it happens entirely off screen, while we know that Lea Michele complained about how sweaty
Cory Monteith was for their scene,
so we’ll get to see that.

Tons of congress people and corporations have filed amicus briefs in favor of DOMA
being struck down.

Good news! The Catholic Archdiocese has decided that Satan does not, in fact, make gay babies. We can now go back to
blaming the only obvious culprit: straight people having sex.

Houston Chronicle parenting blogger Kathleen McKinley thinks that if we want gay teens to stop killing
themselves, we should encourage denial and staying closeted for them,
not acceptance and love. I think the Houston
should be encouraged to find a better parent to give advice.

James BondSkyfall is the name of the new James
film, and it will center mostly around M’s past coming back to haunt
her. The story is completely separate from the previous two Daniel Craig-starring films.

Remember Scratch,
the saber –toothed squirrel from the Ice Age movies? It turns out he did exist.

The teen that beat the crap out of his gay classmate while
the camera phones rolled has been charged with a delinquency count of assault.

No big-box retailers will agree to sell the David
book The Last Testament: A Memoir by God. And it won’t even be
published in the UK for fear of offending people. Thankfully, I have it
downloaded on Kindle on my iPad, if I can just find time to read it.

Garrett Hedlund has officially been offered the lead role in Akira.
I hope he’s capable of emoting more Garrett Hedlundthan he did in Tron.

For everything I
agree with
Kids In the Hall’s Scott
about, like “Let’s be honest, look at the role of gay men on
television – for a gay male to be on television he has to be neutered, and
who’s doing the neutering? Women. Straight men don’t do it; they don’t give a
shit. They are jealous of how much sex we have. It’s women who are neutering
us. They want us to be their shopping companions…,” I disagree strongly
about other things, like saying that calling him a gay comic is a form of
bullying. “That’s total bullying. It’s putting you in a category that
makes you lesser. When you hyphenate anything, that’s basically lessening you.
How about just ’comedian’? I reject all those hyphenates. That’s just
– no. I don’t want any hyphenates. I don’t want any handicap.” Lesser?
Really? Get some therapy, dude.

Lady Gaga is having a Thanksgiving special, with Katie Couric. They’ll be singing, crafts, and then she’ll deep fry
a turkey and serve it with waffles.

Meanwhile, Universal Pictures chief Ron Meyer says thatCowboys & Aliens wasn’t good
enough. Forget all the smart people involved in it, it wasn’t good enough. All
those little creatures bouncing around were crappy. I think it was a mediocre
movie, and we all did a mediocre job with it.” But he has nothing but
praise for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, “Scott Pilgrim did deserve better, but it just didn’t capture enough
of the imaginations of people, and it was one of those things where it didn’t
cost a lot so it wasn’t a big loss.”

Dirty Dancing It’s happening. The Dirty Dancing remake will be released in July 2013.

Just as Downton Abbey wraps up season two in
the UK comes the news that the show has been renewed for a third season.

Do a barrel roll.

HBO’s The Kids Are All Right will not be a sequel. It won’t be a prequel. Actually, it
might be both. Who knows.Armie Hammer and Leonardo DiCaprio

Somewhere, Lea
is sitting in a darkened room, stroking a white cat, and
smiling contentedly. 

In J. Edgar, it seems Tolson and Hoover took the whole “kiss and make up” thing to
passionate heights. Like totally heterosexual men do.

Russell Tovey showed up to support the Terrance Higgins Trust for HIV research and treatment at their annual Supper Club fundraiser. How much for me to have dinner with him?

Seriously – I’m checking the couch cushions.

Starz has announced that Spartacus Vengeance is going to return Friday, January 27th at 10pm. Then we get to see if the new guy fills out the loincloth in all the right ways.

This is a good start.

Everyone seems to be quite excited to have Chord Overstreet back on the set of Glee. He can’t do anything without someone taking a picture of him.

No photos before my morning coffee please.

I have been trying to resist posting these spoofs of the “I’m a culture not a costume…” campaign, because I get that they have a valid message and I didn’t want to make light of the issues. But I really can’t help myself anymore.

I’d be happy to play dress up with him.

I’ll give it up for Thomas Dekker’s creativity in doing Halloween as the Hamburgler, who doesn’t get nearly enough love in the fast food mascot world. But who is Kyle Gallner dressed as?

I remember when the Fry Guys debuted. Everyone hated the Fry Guys.

Barrett Foa is just adorable, plus he’s holding something that looks like it has a ton of calories, which I love in a man.

He’s at Pauley Perrett’s bakery in NYC.

By the time you read this, Conan will have performed a marriage ceremony for his costume designer and his (now) husband. But he’s gotten huge press just for doing it. And the press seems to all have had the same reaction to the news.


This is the world’s cutest pool party.


Jimmy Kimmel told his viewers to tell their kids that they ate all their Halloween candy and put the reactions on YouTube. The results are much more horrible than anyone ever anticipated.


In Wanderlust, Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston join a commune, by accident. They proceed to find happiness in a simpler life, a life that may not include clothing. Or privacy. I don’t want to call this NSFW because it’s really not, but if your boss walks in during the goat milking scene, it may be awkward.


Katy Perry went to Mexico. Her dancers and her fans are extremely photogenic, even if I feel the male dancers were shorted screen time from the water park.


Michigan just passed what many are calling a blueprint for bullying under the guise of protecting children. But state Senator Gretchen Whitmer wasn’t about to let the bill become law without registering her disgust. I think she deserved a standing ovation.


We Bought a Zoo has a new international trailer, and it’s cute. Actually, that little girl may be weaponized cuteness.


I had shared a snippet of Cazwell and Peaches collaboration “Unzip Me” last week, and now they’ve put the whole song out. I have a feeling the video for this is going to be NSFW, because the lyrics are.


I’m a bit confused about the airing of beCause Documentary: The Legacy of Brendan Burke on Logo, because the Tumblr says that it airs this Saturday at 9 PM EDT, but this trailer says it aired in October. In any case, I intend to watch it, because they have my attention.


For no real reason at all, here is a video of hot men wearing nothing but Andrew Christian’s underwear and Kangoo working out in Time’s Square in New York City. Probably want to call this NSFW.


Opinionated. You'll love to hate me
