“Westworld” Will Be A Must-See, Tom And Dustin Are The Pride Of Britain: BRIEFS

Plus the Pope lost his coolness, and don't dress your kid like this for Halloween

Birthday shoutouts go to Stark Sands (above), who is 37???, Fran Drescher is 58, Ezra Miller is 23, and Angie Dickinson is 84.

So here is the consent agreement given to extras on the set of HBO’s Westworld:

“This document serves to inform you that this project will require you to be fully nude and/or witness others fully nude and participate in graphic sexual situations. By accepting this Project assignment, you may be required to do any of the following: appear fully nude; wear a pubic hair patch; perform genital-to-genital touching; have your genitals painted; simulate oral sex with hand-to-genital touching; contort to form a table-like shape while being fully nude; pose on all fours while others who are fully nude ride on your back; ride on someone’s back while you are both fully nude; and other assorted acts the Project may require. The Project will also include language and sexual situations that some may consider personally objectionable or uncomfortable.”

I am so there.

How Pope Francis undermined the goodwill of his trip and proved to be a coward.

“He shows himself to be antithetical to much of what he preaches and teaches. He talks about dialogue and having the courage of one’s convictions and the courage to speak out. But he swept this Davis meeting under the rug, seemingly ashamed and certainly not wanting to broach the subject. Even Davis’s supporters should find that insulting to them.”

Josh Duggar cheated with another porn star.

“The second porn star had a similar experience — Josh was also rough with her. He’s a monster with what he did to these women and the embarrassment he’s caused his family.”

Inappropriate Halloween costumes for kids.

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 we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Peter Allen

Peter had another huge songwriting hit with “Don’t Cry Out Loud,” which would become one of Melissa Manchester’s biggest hits. Here’s Peter’s version.

Peter had his one and only Hot 100 chart hit in the U.S. in 1981 with the fabulous “Fly Away,” which peaked at #55

Thanks to immoralq for the Peter Allen suggestion. If you have a suggestion for a future shoutout, drop me a line at therealsnicks@yahoo.com

Three years ago I presented my personal favorite Briefs list, The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s, and because if there’s one thing Hollywood has taught us, it’s that sequels and reboots and remakes are ALWAYS better then the original, we’re going to the well again with The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s Part 2: The Even More Forgotten

We’ll be spotlighting 100 more of the greatest minor hits of the decade, the songs you don’t hear on any 80’s nostalgia show. Songs that missed the top ten, or top twenty … or top forty. Hopefully these forgotten gems may ring a long dormant bell, or for younger readers, provide a pop music history lesson.

At #98 is “Guaranteed For Life” by Millions Like Us


British duo John O’Kane and Jeep MacNichol released one album in late 1987, which peaked at #171 on the album chart, and the only charting song, the Michael McDonald-esque “Guaranteed For Life” peaked at #69 on the Hot 100 in December. Okay, so millions didn’t like them, but I bought the cassingle.

Congrats to johned, who guessed that yesterday’s Pixuzzle™ © ® was Pet Semetary.


Here’s today’s Pixuzzle™ © ®. Here is a scene from a FAMOUS MOVIE. Can you name it?
