Plus Jon Hamm is despicable, The Wolverine has ninjas, and Jane Fonda remembers Harvey Milk.
Winona Ryder says that if she’s home and Heathers comes on television, not only does she watch it, she recites her lines at the television. “I was watching Little Women recently, and I didn’t want to get up for fear of missing something. And Heathers is like my own Rocky Horror Picture Show; I recite the lines when it’s on. It may seem odd, but I think it’s because they’re really good movies.” So do I, Winona, so do I.
Chris Broussard not only believes that gay people are living in open rebellion with god, he also thinks we can become straight with the power of prayer.
Meanwhile, the Jason Collins story gave SI.com a record number of visitors, and the Washington Wizards have seen a huge spike in orders for the #98 Collins jersey, which I’d consider ordering myself if I had the shoulders to pull off a basketball jersey.
Rush Limbaugh decided to open his big mouth about Jason Collins and how the media reacted to the historic announcement. “I grew up in a family… where people’s sexual orientation, preferences, whatever – weren’t even discussed. Why can’t everyone just put your sexual preferences on Facebook and call it a day? Why do we need to stop everything and have a national day of celebration, or mourning, depending on your point of view… about this? There is no tolerance at all here. Not only do these people have to publicly announce it, everyone else has to applaud and accept it. If you wanna say you’re gay, fine, but does it have to be rammed down everyone’s throats all the time?” I, for one, would like to applaud the visual I got from “rammed down everyone’s throats.”
If you need a job, you may want to apply to be a surrogate gorilla mother.
Kelsey Grammer is set to play the human villain in the latest Transformers movie.
Just a reminder, May is National Masturbation Month. Celebrate often.
Daniel Radcliffe is set to star in Tokyo Vice, about American journalist Jake Adelstein who went head to head with a yakuza boss.
Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy have announced plans for a blue collar amusement park in Alabama, described as Six Flags meets Branson, MI. The park is said to cost $200 million, which sounds like a lot until you realize that just the expansion of Universal Studios Hollywood will cost $1.6 billion. So enjoy the Til-a-Whirl.
Ohio Republicans aren’t fans of voter rights if you remember the last election. Now they’re proposing a rule that if a public institution helps students register to vote in Ohio instead of their home state, the school has to charge them in state tuition, depriving the school of mountains of money. Young people tend to vote Democratic.
The weather is warming up, so remember to use a beer cozy. That condensation may look cool and refreshing, but it’s really just your beer getting warm. Or you could just drink faster. Your call.
News bloopers are the best. Susanna Collins was talking about the playoff return of the Blackhawks, and had a little slip of the tongue. “The second season starts tonight and this Blackhawks team is ready. All season long, they have been saying that this is the season that matters. And, despite the fact that they had such a tremendous amount of sex… er… success during the regular season…”
Jon Hamm will be voicing Herb Overkill, husband to Scarlet Overkill (Sandra Bullock) in the Minions spinoff from Despicable Me.
This is why we shouldn’t let gay people play basketball.
Congressional sponsors of the Respect for Marriage Act will hold off on introducing the bill until after the Supreme Court rules on the Defense of Marriage Act, which makes sense, as the bill may need to change drastically depending on the scope of the ruling.
Rapper A$AP Rocky has huge respect for men who come out of the closet. “I respect men more for coming out. They joke on Frank Ocean a lot, but at least he ain’t out here frontin’. It’s a lot of mothafucka’s they be out here they be in the closet mothafucka’s. I don’t respect them. I respect gay men who identify it and they out with it. I don’t have a problem with gay people at all.”
Because I like weird sciencey things, here’s a pocket laser taking on 100 black balloons. Spoiler alert: The balloons do not fare well.
David Letterman sat down with Dr. Phil for what I found to be an astoundingly good conversation about why some people fear/hate gay people. I’m not saying Dr. Phil is a bad person, but sometimes what comes out of his mouth is just awful, but here he managed near perfection.
This is the first clip from the latest Conversations with Coco, in which the legendary queen sits down with Jane Fonda, who recalls working on gay rights many years ago with Harvey Milk. The girls also have some really fun banter about who’s more of a lady.
The CinemaCon footage from The Wolverine is out, and it’s got a lot of ninjas. That’s really all I can say about this movie. There’s just no hook for me to care beyond the bulging muscles on Hugh Jackman, and for that I can just wait for the GIFs.
On the other hand, Walking with Dinosaurs 3D is absolutely stunning. I’m a bit concerned that they seem to be ripping off Ice Age on the plot, but the animation is truly breathtaking.
I’ve always questioned how many dimensions exist inside cartoon worlds, but presuming that Futurama is in a 3D world, what happens when they lose a dimension? What works, and what doesn’t?
Eli Roth has put out the NSFW red band trailer for Aftershock, about a group of bros having a completely misogynistic vacation in Chile when an earthquake hits, and society seems to crumble around them in the most ridiculous, gory way possible.
A Boy and His Atom is the world’s smallest movie, since it’s a stop motion animation from IBM created my moving around individual carbon monoxide molecules with a tunneling microscope. I shudder to think about the price tag for something like this, but I’m also happy it exists.
