Rupert Murdoch’s Fox television gets more gay
Gay and Lesbian people everywhere don’t know whether to love or hate Rupet Murdoch. His Fox News channel is patently homophobic, however his Fox television channels and his FX channel couldn’t be more gay friendly. For example; FX has carried “Nip/Tuck” for it’s fourth season, and nothing was more controversial than when Matt McMahon, the son, makes out with a transvestite and he’s repulsed by it. The season finishes with Matt being chased out by the transvestite and all of her friends who finally catch up to him and they pull down their mini-skirts and they piss on him. (Here’s a YouTube of the scene, but somebody decided to re-record the music track and thought it was funny. It’s very weird, so watch the video with the sound off and you get the jist.)
Now Brad Pitt has joined up with Murdoch‘s bipolar relationship with GLBT issues with a show called 4oz. Variety is talking about Pitt doing an ambitious drama about the metamorphosis of a man who realizes he’s a transsexual.
4 oz. tells the story of a married male gynecologist, who shares a medical practice with his father, with two sons whose life takes a radical gender turn.
Ryan Murphy, the creator for Nip/Tuck and Brad Falchuk, the medical writer for Nip/Tuck are involved in the project.
Fox News hates Hollywood Fred more than you do!
Roger Ailes and Fox News have begun running negative stories about the Republican’s Hollywood elite: Fred Thompson.
First came Carl Cameron’s report that made a point of observing, somewhat contemptuously, that Thompson wore Gucci loafers to the Iowa state fair. Then Cameron reported that Thompson was the only candidate to get around the state fair in a golf cart, evoking the image not of a golfer as much as someone zipping around his retirement community.
Now we have Fox News reporting on Thompson’s appearance at the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention yesterday. He spoke on the same day as Barack Obama and Fox notes that the juxtaposition was not a flattering one…for Gramps.

Most Eligible Bachelorette: Princess Sparkle Pony points out Forbes’s typo
Forbes magazine has made Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice “Most Elegible Bachellorette“. Princess Sparkle Pony has objected to this horror and has declared it an obvious typo.
Clearly this is an error; how, exactly, are they defining eligible? I think this is just another one of those clerical errors, as when she was recently, hilariously, named the most influential person in the District. LOL! As if!
Anything else funny about the article? We’re also tied for 20th place as drinkiest city… with San Francisco? I’m sorry, but DC is way, way drunker. I think the most humorous thing about the piece, though, is that we’re rated #6 best city for singles overall, perhaps due to our 33% unmarried statistic. Um… hello? Forbes? PSSST! We’re all hairdressers! Or otherwise unmarriable! Also, apparently, we’re the fifth best city for young professionals, which means that all those dirt-poor staffers on The Hill who are in their 20s but still have to have roommates are luckier than they knew!
While you’re admiring Princess Sparkle Pony’s blog, be very sure to notice her “Condoleeza Rice Hair-Do Alert System” which is, thankfully, remaining steady at “Guarded”.
Note to self 1 of 2: Forbes lists Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold as “Most Eligible Bachelor”. While Rice is described as “relaxed” and available, Feingold’s description notes he’s been divorced twice already and unavailable for any kind of “presidential material”.
Not to self 2 of 2: Add Princess Sparkle Pony to the Fruit Fly blogroll.
Hollywood Religion: Naked Jesus
Do you remember when John Ashcroft, US Attorney General paid taxpayer money to have various nude sculptures covered up because “he didn’t like being photographed in front of them”. Apparently, conservative Christians reallly hate nudity.
So if you want to really piss off your Fundie/Neocon relative, talk about this Naked Jesus story a lot.
Michaelangelo was commissioned to sculpture a statute of Christ for a family tombstone. The sculpture was commissioned and Christ’s image was expected to be nude: As a sign of humility towards mankind. Well, whatever happened to it? Michaelangelo didn’t finish the work because of a flaw in the marble and so it went to the back of the art world’s showroom floor. The statue
Apparently, Michelangelo spent two years carving the sculpture from the feet up only to abandon the piece when he discovered flaws in the white marble when he began work on the face, at which point he gave the sculpture away in exchange for a horse.
While Michaelangelo’s David was sculpted with an uncircumcised penis, there’s no word on whether Jesus Christ was cut…or uncut.
Benny Hinn is asking for 6,000 of his followers to give him $1,000 so he can purchase a brand-new Gulfstream jet which he will be calling it “Dove One“.
The actor/performer promises that:
As a thank you gift, Benny will send you a “beautiful art-quality model of Dove One for your desk or mantle as a constant reminder that you are a vital part of this last-days harvest for souls,” and your name will be inscribed on Dove One — so you can fly with Benny — in spirit.
Benny Hinn is speaking in tongues here. He states “beautiful art-quality model of Dove One” is the Holy Spirit talking through him. In plain old English for you and I: Benny will send you a piece of shit plastic airplane that Gulfstream makes as a marketing tool for assholes like Benny to lust after.
Pam Spaulding, Pam’s House Blend, has tons of links about this Jesus-fraud including tax evasion cases, investigations by Dateline NBC on Hinn’s questionable religious practices and investigations by religious organizations.
