Morning Meme: “The Looney Tunes Show” Celebrates Christmas, Adam Levine Hates Honey Boo Boo, and How Do You Define Consummation For Same-Sex Couples?

Kristen Chenoweth is dating The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka. I’m sure I can see the attraction, but considering allJake Pavelka the hot tub hijinks on that show, I hope she’s had all her shots.

Evidently British civil servants are thinking a lot about gay sex. It seems that traditionally, British law requires that a marriage be consummated to be completely legal, and nobody is quite sure what “consummated” means for a gay couple or a lesbian couple. The law defines it for heterosexual couples as “complete penetration of the vagina by the penis, although it does not matter if a condom or ejaculation is involved.” They considered amending the law to remove the consummation requirement for all couples, but felt that any changes to heterosexual marriage would bring opposition. So what is consummation to you?

Denis O’Hare is returning to Law & Order SVU as Father Shea. It doesn’t sounds like Father Shea has a great time of it, being pulled from his car and beaten. “Returning” is slightly loaded here – O’Hare originally played Father Shea on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and the shows don’t typically mix like this.

Both Bully and How To Survive a Plague have made the shortlist for the Oscars’ documentary category.

Mary Kate and Ashley OlsenYou may lose many hours to the new tool Overlayer. Basically it allows you to place an overlay on any photo, such as the TMZ watermark, or add a Tebow to any picture. Basically, it saves you hours in Photoshop trying to create a cutout to use to mock your friends.

A prominent Southern Methodist University student has admitted to forcing a male student to perform sex acts on him. John Mahaffey is a descendent of an SMU founder, scholarship committee chari, Hunt scholar, a student senator and a member of the interfraternity council. He pressured his victim to say it was consensual using his positions to create fear.

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are producing a ridiculous $55,000 handbag with prescription meds on it with artist Damien Hirst. Only 12 will be made, because there are only 12 people crazy enough to spend $55,000 on a handbag.

For the past few weeks, has been posting Fan Fic Fridays, where a story has been dissected Mystery Science Theater style. Keith HaringThey’re discontinuing the feature because of fairly aware reasons for a Gawker blog. Mostly, they got a lot of feedback that while it might be fine to mock a Hollywood movie, picking on an unknown fanfic writer when you’re a giant media company is just mean.

From December 2 to February 15, Mana Contemporary in Jersey City will be hosting a rare exhibition of out artist Keith Haring’s larger artworks. Mana is one of the few facilities equipped to handle exhibitions of so many oversize art pieces, and it’s worth checking out the work of Haring, who put so much life into his work.

At an after party for a screening of Les Miserables, Hugh Jackman pulled his costar Amanda Seyfried onstage, announced it was her birthday, and proceeded to sing to heAdam Leviner while giving her a lap dance. I’d like to point out my birthday was last week, Mr. Jackman.

Gwist.TV is a new YouTube channel targeting the GLBT market with original content from creators such as Howard Bragman, Miss Ritchfield 1981, and Randy Rainbow.

Quentin Tarantino has an explanation for why the song Frank Ocean wrote for Django Unchained isn’t in the movie. “Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn’t a scene for it. I could have thrown it in quickly just to have it, but that’s not why he wrote it and not his intention. So I didn’t want to cheapen his effort. But, the song is fantastic, and when Frank decides to unleash it on the public, they’ll realize it then.”

Adam Levine is not a fan of Honey Boo Boo. “Just because so many people watch the show doesn’t mean it’s good. So many people witness atrocities and can’t take their eyes away from them, but that doesn’t mean they’re good. That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened. It’s complete f*cking ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F*ck those people. You can put that in the magazine: F*ck those idiots. They’re just the worst. Sorry, I’m so sensitive to that—like, I don’t know, man, it’s upsetting.”



I just couldn’t stop laughing when I saw this

Jake Shears says he has no idea who these people were who wanted a picture with him

Chris Colfer says Kristen Chenoweth forced him to drink all of these

But he also got to hang out with Pauley Perette and Ashley Fink at Trevor Live

What happens when two of the candidates for Hottest TV Beefcake hang out together?

Heterosexual Awareness Month is a thing on Facebook. Like anyone wasn’t aware

Does this mean he’s at least curious?

I first fell in love with PBS Digital’s Remixed series when they did Mister Rogers, who was my childhood favorite. Now they’ve come up with Reading Rainbow, which I’m a little too old to have been a part of, but since I’m a giant geek and it’s Levar Burton, this one works pretty well for me too.


This week’s Glee has Rachel back in school, and for some reason she decides to have a dance off with Cassandra to Bob Fosse. I don’t know why Rachel thinks she can out-sexy her teacher, since she already gave up Brody to her, but I can bet our sisters over at AfterEllen are going to enjoy this.

This is kind of inspiring. Eighth grader McKenna Pope’s little brother loves to bake, and he wants an Easy Bake Oven for Christmas (I had one as a kid myself). But McKenna doesn’t like it that Hasbro markets the Easy Bake Oven exclusively to girls, and only has pink and purple as color options. She thinks this sends the wrong message to both little girls and little boys, and she’s got a point. There’s a petition you can sign to ask Hasbro to stop gender-specific marketing.


Pat Robertson is horrified that a same-sex wedding took place at the main West Point Chapel. He thinks that Dwight Eisenhower, Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant are rolling over in their graves. First up, invoking a confederate general may not help your reputation as a racist, Pat. Secondly, I think our own Ulysses might have some good knowledge about how his relative might feel on the subject, and I’ll go out on a limb he’s not fond of you invoking his name to spread your hate.


I’m kind of fond of The Looney Tunes Show on Cartoon Network. It takes the classic characters and drops them into the real world and lets them live. It’s different, but it works. What else works is their take on Christmas, and this is a Christmas song that won’t make you want to stick sharp objects into your ear to find a little peace.


Coming Out on Top is a gay dating game that’s running a Kickstarter to finish development. It started out as a project for a straight girl, and she couldn’t find a market for it, until gay men showed up, which might have been where I looked first. It starts with you coming out, and progresses, and yes, it has some adult content. There’s even a demo you can download and play.


Flying into San Diego is always a weird landing. The airport is right on the water, and the approach always makes me feel like we’re going to splash down. But it means that most planes make a fairly standard approach, and the airport is right in the city, so you can plane watch all you want. This video is a time lapse of every landing on Black Friday between 10:30 AM and 3:30 PM.


Opinionated. You'll love to hate me
