Sometimes you push on your shutter without knowing exactly who you are shooting. Case and point… We stopped in on the God’s Pocket film set and were attracted to a skinny male disheveled figure traipsing about and thought to do a few test shots on him. What can we tell y’all, we like them thin! Lo and behold, its none other than Caleb Landry Jones of X Men: First Class and No Country for Old Men fame.
Here is the face of bigotry – on gay pride no less! Two men on a Queens-bound F train were recorded making homophobic slurs at a group of gay youths after they boarded the train. A concerned rider became concerned and documented the altercation – at the expense of her own safety. When the two homophobes realized they were being recorded by the female bystander one of them is seen walking towards her and lunging at her in attempt to take her phone to destroy the evidence. Although the ER breaks were pulled the duo managed to get away at the Roosevelt Ave stop.
The identification of the two bigoted cowards is unknown.
If you recognize either of these two lovely individuals call the police and report their small dick asses.
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.

This is sure to be a new take on facing your own humility! OSCAR winning actress Reese Witherspoon defies the conventional going into hiding after her and her hubby James Toth were arrested in Atlanta, Georgia for DUI, and embraces her humility by jetting to NYC to attend the Mud premiere at MoMA.
This brazen act of “mea culpa” is assuredly going to make a whole lot of folks think twice about letting their publicists take the lead in spin control. And we love her all the more for it.

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?
Jorge Mario Bergoglio elected as new pope, to be called Pope Francis
We ain’t seen something this here funny in a damn long time. We kid you not, we laughed so hard we nearly pee’ed in our pants. An unruly ghetto wanna-be thug mom gets herself tasered, in front of her kids, after she attacks mall security officer Darren Long. See video after the jump: Read the rest of this entry »
Four more years! YES, today is inauguration day for Barack Obama who was officially sworn in for his second term yesterday. Generally when one utters these words grouped together its something preceded with a word like ‘damn’. This happens to be that amazing exception to the general rule. And it would appear its in honor of the man undertaking another four years of dealing with the daily throws of DC politics.
We are all gleeful that the man we voted for is going full steam ahead – and on MLK day no-less.
Well, we too have a dream. That the American people as a whole learn to vote into office politicians who are actually out to do work for the people instead of heading their otherwise lazy asses out to the nations Capital to spend their time filibustering and getting greased over by lobbyist who ain’t got no one’s well being at heart other than to figure out how to raise their profit margins at the expense of the very people who put those lazy asses in their cushy spots with the best health care imaginable!
That’s our damn dream. And that one day, like a dear friend Elease so eloquently put it, we don’t have to work on MLK day!
Congress gets to take off for weeks on end and the people can’t have MLK day? WTF!
But today is about celebrating history – one that will run another four years! And for that, we think, MLK must be smiling from the here-after. Cuz for certain some of what he preached – not all, we ain’t no idealist – has come to pass.
So here’s a Northern congratulatory mention to President Obama. We don’t volunteer to brave the cold for many but we’d gladly do it for you. But since we can’t, please know we’d be there with the masses today if we could.
