I wake up to Indie every day.

Hearing Dicky bitch has gotten me through a LOT of horrible mornings, and I enjoy his show even more than the lovable meanderings of Jonesy.

I truly believe it was Dicky's courageous stand against the abortion ban in South Dakota that got him the boot. To have a woman from the region on the show speaking in a VERY balanced way re: the abortion bill on a morning show is fucking fearless, and I'm damn proud to be a Di…

See folks? Closeted Folks are CRAZY

R. Kelly's Not So Brotherly Love By Sarah Hall1 hour, 38 minutes ago R. Kelly's brother, Carey, believes he can't lie. The "Trapped in the Closet" singer's younger sibling has released a low-budget DVD on which he accuses his brother of trying to get him to commit perjury, according to MTV News. According to Carey Kelly, his brother wanted him to take the fall by claiming that he was actually the star of the infamous sex tape that prompted child-pornography charges against R. Kelly. On the DVD, released Tuesday, Carey Kelly alleges that his more famous brother offered him $50,000, a house and a record contract if he would agree to testify that he appeared on the tape, but that he turned the offer down because he did not want to lie. "I got a call about a year and a half ago," Carey claims on the DVD, produced by Drahma Magazine. "My brother wanted me to do some s--t pertaining to this case that would leave me behind bars with a r…

While filming Black. White. for FX

Did I ever want to strangle Bruno from FX's Black. White? Was a reply, decided to make it a post! (X-posted from somewhere else, can you guess where?!)

Bruno was very kind to me throughout the entire shoot. He, Carmen and Rose are still and will always be close to my heart. Coming from a multi-cultural background (both my parents married white after having me) I already seen white folk embarrass themselves a bit, but I saw much of Bruno's comments to be based in a desire to KNOW and really try and understand.

For many who come from an immigrant background, the African American struggle against racism seems less than real. Overt racism doesn't exist as much we can all agree...but for the most part the separate but equal segregation (at times self-segregation) that has sprung into our midst = the new racism. I highly suggest a great book, How the Irish Became White, for in depth analysis of what the American Melting Pot really means.

So, no I never wanted to strangle …

'Entourage' Gang Dishes on Fame and FamilyThe team behind the Hollywood hit reflects on the HBO comedy's true message at the Paley Festival By Daniel FienbergMarch 2 2006 Jeremy Piven of 'Entourage' LOS ANGELES -- "Entourage," the HBO comedy about a group of friends flying by the seat of their pants in the face of Hollywood fame, is, apparently, flying by the seat of its pants creatively as well.

Facing questions about the show's upcoming 20-episode third season, "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin repeatedly told the crowd at the Museum of Television and Radio's annual Paley Festival that he's usually too busy trying to get each individual episode right to know where the series is going long-term. Even when the crowd at the Wednesday (March 1) event tried to compliment Ellin on the show's richer second season, he would barely take credit.

"There was definitely no design to make it more full in the second season, but t…

PETE! Move in with Ozzy!

Ozzy Osbourne has expressed his sympathy to Pete Doherty and says that he would help the troubled Babyshambles frontman.Osbourne once called Doherty “A little fucking junkie” and says he now takes those comments back and admits Pete needs help. He said: “I’ve been to the pits of hell with addiction and although it’s fucking me off to see him fucking up his life, I’d help him in a minute if he asked.“Sharon was a rock to me and if he came to stay with us she’d sort him.” As The Star reports, he continued: “Why the fuck isn’t anyone helping the boy? It’s not entertaining to watch.”

Carol Burnett Hooks Up with Housewives

Carol Burnett Hooks Up with Housewives
Thursday Mar 02, 2006 4:00pm EST
By Todd Peterson
Carol Burnett is getting Desperate. The legendary funnywoman is
joining the cast of Desperate Housewives as Eleanor Mason, the
stepmother of Bree Van De Kamp, played by Marcia Cross, USA Today
reports.
Burnett said she thought the opportunity would be "a hoot." "I'm a
soap opera fan. I've watched All My Children for a hundred years, and
this, too, is a very campy soap," she said.
For Burnett, the role provided a chance to play against character, and
she requested that series creator Marc Cherry make Mason "meaner."
"It's more fun to have those villainous takes – like Miss Hannigan,"
Burnett said, referencing her role in the 1982 film "Annie."
Burnett's character is described a classic evil stepmother, who raised
the young Bree after her mother was killed, says Cherry. "She's a very
tightly wound, proper lady for whom appearances mean every…

BUFFY RETURNS?

Whedon: 'Buffy' May Return
Writer/director Joss Whedon has hinted his cult TV creations "Buffy the
Vampire Slayer" and "Angel" could be making a comeback.
The series creator says there are talks of home entertainment or miniseries
continuations of the Sarah Michelle Gellar-starring series and its spin-off.
He says, "We've been discussing how to do things with a different format --
maybe something straight to DVD that wouldn't be a full series. There are
various characters that I'd want to explore further."

So I Don't Have The Edge...Oscar Noms according to Astrology

NY POST/By SALLY BROMPTON - Post Astrologer
INDIVIDUALS with their sun in a fire sign (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius)
are born enthusiasts, success-orientated, and the people who will set
the world on fire. So it is not surprising that seven of this year's 10
Oscar nominees for the Best Actor and Best Actress were born under fire
signs. But the stars are truly aligned for two actors this year -Philip
Seymour Hoffman and Reese Witherspoon.
BEST ACTOR
The Winner - Philip Seymour Hoffman, "Capote"
July 23, 1967 - LEO
Jupiter aspects are common in the horoscopes of actors, and Hoffman's
sun-Jupiter conjunction in larger-than-life Leo certainly gave him an
edge in getting to grips with real-life Truman Capote's monumental ego.
But it is Hoffman's Mars in Scorpio that brings actor and author
together in the story of the latter's international best seller "In
Cold Blood," a groundbreaking "nonfiction novel" about a brutal
multiple murder in Kansas. Mars in Scor…

S.D. House Approves Abortion Ban Bill

From Yahoo! News
S.D. House Approves Abortion Ban Bill
PIERRE, S.D. - The Legislature on Friday approved a ban on nearly all
abortions in South Dakota, setting up a direct legal assault on
Roe v. Wade.
Republican Gov. Mike Rounds said he was inclined to sign the bill, which
would make it a crime for doctors to perform an abortion unless it was
necessary to save the woman's life. The measure would make no exception
in cases of rape or incest.
Many opponents and supporters of abortion rights believe the
U.S. Supreme Court is more likely to overturn its 1973 Roe v. Wade
decision legalizing abortion now that Justices John Roberts and
Samuel Alito are on the bench.
Planned Parenthood, which operates the only abortion clinic in South
Dakota, has pledged to sue over the measure, which would become law July
1. The clinic does about 800 abortions a year.
The House passed the bill 50-18 on Friday. The Senate approved the
measure 23-12 earlier this week.
Under the measure, doctors could get up to five y…

Brokeback Blog: The Backlash leads me back to my Bible

March 2, 2006 -- The exclusive Christian high school Michelle Williams attended has bitterly disowned the Oscar-nominated star of "Brokeback Mountain" - saying it's deeply offended she appeared in the controversial gay-cowboy flick. "We don't want to have anything to do with her in relation to that movie," Jim Hopson, headmaster of the posh Santa Fe Christian School, told the San Diego Union Tribune. "Michelle doesn't represent the values of this institution . . . 'Brokeback Mountain' basically promotes a lifestyle we don't promote."
-Page Six

Promoting a lifestyle...see this is a major problem with letting str8's co-opt our stories and our lives. Should the stars of BM take on the struggle, or will they own it till Oscar day and not a moment after?

The former Army captain has become the first UK artist to achieve the feat since Sir Elton John triumphed in the notoriously-difficult US charts in 1997.You're Beautiful is said to have been written after the singer, who was a double winner at this year's Brits, saw his ex-girlfriend on a train with a new man.
