Onetime Maryville, Missouri Maryville High School graduate and football star Matthew Barnett, now 19, was accused of raping a 15-year-old Daisy Coleman back when he was a 17-year-old senior while his friend Jordan Zech played videographer to the incident. Read the rest of this entry »
Here’s a modern 21st century twist on an old practice. Iowa pastor Brent Girouex is accused of having sex with teen boys as young as 14-years-old to cure them of homosexuality, reports states. He is presently charged with 60 counts of “suspicion of sexual exploitation by a counselor or therapist.”
But the story gets bigger…. Read the rest of this entry »
The term ‘it blows’ takes on a whole new meaning when referring to Eminem. A fellatio number performed by a 17-year-old girl on a Eminem look-a-like boy in Dublin, Ireland has caused an international double standards uproar while we were holiday and the term slanegirl emerges. The skinny male receiving said oral number in picture – with his arms raised in victory – is now a legend in his own time. Ain’t that some shit?
As if he were Mandingo reborn or something… Read the rest of this entry »
Geraldo Rivera is a fame whore. No news there! Ain’t nothing that man – to date – will say – or do – to garner some additional minutes on his ‘look-at-me’ watch. But as his oral diarrhea has been faltering of late what does he now go and do? Well, Mr. Man goes and tweets a semi-nude self-pic via Twitter! And as if tweeting a Mr. Burns – of Simpson’s fame – looking pic of himself weren’t enough his caption goes and reads “70 is the new 50!” Read the rest of this entry »
Congratulations to San Franciscans on having Proposition 8 overturned! Happy pride to y’all.
If you were wondering how the NYC Citi-Bikes program is going so far, wonder no more. It seems to be peddling along on the city streets with smiles and laughter. We parked our vehicular West of 9th Avenue and caught a group of ladies traversing Manhattan on board of the controversial two wheel’ers having a grand ole time – simply couldn’t resist a candid snap with our iPhone.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to witness it first hand allow us to introduce you to the Citibank sponsored bike racks that has half of NY-kers up in a tizzy. Seriously, we kid you not. One of our friends, who we will only identify as JM gets so heated over the topic its as if she is going to burst something. The racks have swooped in and appropriated what many nay-say’ers shout is flagrant misuse of viable space in the Big Apple that is all but chewed up with little left in the way of commodity.

Another accident on the South-bound side of the Saw Mill Parkway stalled oncoming traffic from all directions to a virtual stand-still. And while we were fortunate enough to manage zipping thru it swiftly enough and get our asses to work on time we couldn’t help but momentarily ponder what the hell is fueling these fender benders during daylight hours.

Some times all types of shit are thrown at you by the universe as you try to make your way to a freelance gig prior to your regular post. Resistance is futile. But you can’t help but take notice – and snap an I-Phone pic in passing as you ask ‘Seriously?’
Case and point:
On our way to the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Julianne Moore’s The English Teacher, we encountered a series of obstacles and roadblocks that all seemed to be saying ‘turn around now!’ But yet we persisted.
These included a major accident on the Parkway involving a motorcycle that backed up traffic off-parkway more than a mile… Upon our attempt at circumventing the traffic, after waiting 15-minutes without movement, we initiated an U-turn and were shortly thereafter pulled over by a cop, who rather than try to aid the chaos ensuing from the stalled traffic due to said accident, looked to knock off a quota filling moment.
And just when we thought we had dodged a bullet by coasting down the WSH we run into a shit load of traffic – for no apparent reason post 42nd Street and arrive at a Chelsea bike path fire for which cars scrambled all about to try and let a fire truck thru. Of course the fire was far from accidental and did look like it had started and fueled prior to getting out of control, smoke rising everywhere, as no one thought to pour their designer water on it at the start.
Don’t get us started on the finding a temporary parking spot down at BMCC area!
As you can see from the proceeding post, we did manage to get to the premiere and procure a shot of Ms. Moore – one which we will forever be grateful to her and her PR for… But it does stand to reason that Murphy’s Law is always in affect.
White smoke at the Vatican indicates new pope announcement imminent, reports state.
Far be it from us to tell folks what to have faith in or not and why. Folks need to believe what will aid them in getting thru a day/month/year/life time and, our general position on it is more power to you.
What we wholeheartedly fail to understand is how a pope resigns his life-long post midst allegations of a scandal of a sexual nature and all avenues redirect to the election of a new perv in some Prada shoes.
History teaches that where there is smoke, there generally can be found some type of fire.
It isn’t that we don’t believe in a higher being – assuredly there is the plausibility of some celestial being out there somewhere – we simply don’t subscribe to the ‘pay, pray and obey’ practices of the Roman Catholic Church.
Our personal detachment to this practice dates back to our Catholic School sentence as a child. We innocently enough asked why the man was in a dress at a holy Friday mandatory service and it all went to hell thereafter.
Seriously, it was like we had demonstrated the anti-Christ insignia.
Fast forward to present day and our view is still reservedly on this avenue… Drag queens get chastised for donning cross-gender attire yet these men wear dresses everyday and we are supposed to view them as deity.
What with the altogether recent scandals of inappropriate activity at the hands of pervy Priests one would think that the initial mention of impropriety, as far up as the Vatican, would merit getting down to the nasty details of what there lies beneath but NO!
How does that happen?
