XMen 3: The Last Stand Rakes It In...but Pirates 2 will KILL!

Overall the film is a crowd pleaser, especially if you're familiar with Xmen lore, or really liked X2. Some felt the dialouge was stunted and stupid, but it's WAY better than MI:3.

May 30, 2006 -- FORGET about "X-Men: The Last Stand" - Kelsey Grammer is already looking forward to playing "Beast" in the sequel.

Given the boffo box-office numbers "The Last Stand" did over Memorial Day weekend, Grammer told Page Six that he fully expects Fox to order up a sequel, despite the seeming finality of the film's title.

The former "Frasier" star - whom we caught up with at a party in his honor at Hamptons magazine honcho Jason Binn's Southampton estate on Sunday - also revealed that director Brett Ratner was still shooting scenes for "The Last Stand" only three weeks ago.

But perhaps the most notable nugget he shared with us was that Rebecca Romijn - who appears to be wearing only blue paint as the mutant Mystique - actually wears prosthetic breasts in the movie. Who knew? - From Page Six


Under the TMI rule, I can't even give you the title of this article on Huge Jackman. Check it out If You Feel Like It!

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

No Apologies for Queer White Tears - 2016 BlaQOUT Keynote

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
