Nick Denton on Gawker losing in court to Hulk Hogan:
“Hogan did not sue us, as he has claimed, to recover damages from the emotional distress he purportedly experienced upon our revelation in 2012 of a sexual encounter with his best friend’s wife, Heather Cole (then Heather Clem). It turns out this case was never about the sex on the tape Gawker received, but about racist language on another, unpublished tape that threatened Hogan’s reputation and career.”

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay and bisexual celebs who deserve more recognition.
This week our 158th ShoutOUT™ is to … Evan Adams
Evan starred in numerous Canadian series, including recurring roles on Da Vinci’s City Hall and These Arms Of Mine, and played the title role of Raven in 26 episodes of the award-winning animated children’s series Raven Tales, which was targeted at school-age children and their families to introduce native Aboriginal folklore.
Over the next few weeks we’ll have a lot of fun looking at 20 Songs Everyone Knows That Didn’t Hit The Top 40! These are all songs that have become a part of pop culture history, but failed on the chart when they were originally released. Songs that, through inclusion in films, TV, or other medium have managed to withstand the test of time.
Note – We’ll also include a couple of songs that were never actually released a singles, but have also become classics.
At #3 is “Stairway To Heaven” by Led Zeppelin.
Of course this would have to be on the list someplace. Led Zeppelin’s iconic radio staple was never released as a single, but its legacy is well documented.
“Stairway to Heaven” was voted #3 in 2000 by VH1 on its list of the 100 Greatest Rock Songs, and was placed at number 31 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”. It was the most requested song on FM radio stations in the United States in the 1970s, despite never having been officially released as a single there.”
