Thanks to everyone for participating! The winner is …. It’s a tie! Two captions received the same amount of votes, so both will share the crown this week.

“Batman Vs. Superman has had quite a drop in its audience.”

Thanks to dostka (two in a row!) for this week’s winning caption!

“Tree Lurker, White Van Man and The Pedestrian looked on with quiet satisfaction. They might not be the best known super heroes, they told themselves, but at least they’d never turn up in a bomb of a DC movie.”

And thanks to Darrien for this week’s other winning caption!

Out Quantico star Jay Armstrong Johnson will be performing live at Feinstein’s 54 Below in NYV on April 27, 29 and he’s set up an IndieGoGo page to raise funds to turn the concert into his first live album.
 


Two-time Emmy winner Sela Ward speaks out about the anti-LGBT Mississippi law.

“In recent days I have been asked about the religious objection law that was recently passed in Mississippi, my beloved home state. I have to say that I am deeply dismayed that bias and archaic points-of-view are still contaminating the thinking of our lawmakers. Our history is replete with unfortunate incidents of discrimination and injustice that we have worked extremely hard to transcend. Yes, we are confronting new social and emotional challenges, but the passing of this law sadly sets us back.”


Adam Lambert brought his The Original High tour to London, and managed to Instagram this pic with Brian May, Roger Taylor and Boy George. I would love to hear a George and Adam duet.

Duran Duran is going ahead with their North Carolina concert, but has released this statement on their site:

“Yes here it is again, just plain old fashioned prejudice, fear and oppression, the same old kind that’s blighted the human race, in varying degrees, for all of its history. Duran Duran is opposed to bigotry and discrimination in all of its ugly forms, and so it follows that we are opposed to the basic premise of HB2. We support the rights of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender community, to have equal opportunities. We support their rights to live free, happy, fulfilled lives. If you live in this State and feel the same way, we urge you to register, so that you can vote; so that your voice can be heard. We urge you to sign this petition which will be presented at the General Assembly meeting on April 25th in North Carolina. You have the power to repeal this outdated and cruel legislation.”


If every kick ended like this, I’d definitely watch. Work it, Robbie!


Here’s the Friday Puzzler! “Boy Wonder”


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 161st ShoutOUT™ is to … J.E. Freeman.

Closing out our week with J.E., he retired from acting in 2004, and spent the next decade until his death in 2014 writing poetry and … growing out his hair. Here he is from 2011.

 


Most Briefs lists involve the “best” or “greatest” of something, so for a change let’s switch it up, as Evil Snicks brings you The 30 Worst Music Videos Of All Time.

You’ll see debacles from major musical artists, as well as a few Youtube “stars.” Sure, it’s really easy to pick on desperate wannabes. It’s fun, too. But it proves that terrible can run the gamut from multi-million dollar productions to, well, a certain video named after a day of the week. You know the one.

At #16 is “Ascension Millennium” by Corey Feldman.

OH.DEAR.GOD.

Well, I guess this is the closest we’ll get to an actual Goonies sequel.
