GLAD is tweeting
that Judge Joseph Tauro ruled today that the Defense of Marriage Act --
which defines marriage as between one man and one woman -- does violate the equal protection clause in the Constitution. He also issued a decision in a similar case brought by Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley. I wrote about these cases last month.
Ok, is it just us, or is the fact that Justin 'Lesbian Face' Bieber's mom is publicly weighing in on her son's sexual activity (or lack thereof) sort of creepy? It kind of smacks of the time that Jessica Simpson's creepo father cum manager talked candidly about his daughter's lady lumps, saying, and you can't make this sort of pervy verbiage up, "She's got double D's! You can't cover those suckers up," and then proceeded to wax poetic about said breasts' virtues.
Everyone remembers the awkward yet exhilarating, and faintly uncomfortable, night that they lost their air virginity. If you've yet to pop your air cherry, don't feel ashamed, everyone moves at their own pace, and some people are just late bloomers. The other air humpers will respect you all the more for it.
Betty White is so hot right now. Seriously, how many octogenarians can you think of that are still chewing solid food, let alone carrying on flourishing (and I dare say bigger-than-ever) careers? Not too damn many, is the answer. She's sassy (actually, she's kind of brassy,) she's adorable and she's freaking hilarious.
The late-night wars may
be on summer break until September's debut of The Conan O'Brien Show, but this morning's
Emmy nominations announcement gave Conan a mini W. O'Brien's short-lived
incarnation of The Tonight Show picked up a nod in the best variety, music
or comedy category, while The Jay Leno Show (and Letterman's and
Kimmel's) were left out.
This post should probably just be called "This is Why You're Fat, America" because, well, this is why. Introducing the TV Hat. The portable television appendage that latches onto your face in a manner akin to the extraterrestrial parasite in Alien, thereby impregnating you with all the reality TV muck you can consume.
Seems like these days everybody's got their own fragrance. Jenny from the Block, Enrique Iglesias, Alan Cumming. (Seriously, Alan Cumming.) Hell, even Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has his own distinctive odor called, predictably, "The Sitch." Which we're guessing is a pleasant eau de sweat, HGH and shame.
Do the Right Thing, Stay Inside
Yep, it's one of those dunk-your-head-in-a-sink-of-ice-water days.

Seen that episode of "30 Rock," where James Franco is having a full-on clandestine relationship
with a Japanese anime body pillow? Yeah, well, in support of the
age-old-adage of truth trumping fiction in the strange department, it turns out
that's actually a not-as-uncommon-as-you'd-think phenomenon in Japan.
It was only a matter of time before someone made a movie about Facebook.
Although, frankly, I think a movie about the pervy, dark underbelly of
the early days of MySpace (pre MySpace music, which is a great tool)
would be far more interesting. MySpace is creepy, dude, and yet somehow
seductively so. Point in case: I was once propositioned for a threesome
with an Ohio man and his "triple D, super hot girlfriend" as a birthday
present to said lady.

In the wise words
of food critic Robert Nadeau: "Being a good dog is the essence of a
thing; being a good person is a garnish on top of a thing." But what of
being a good egg? Well, if that egg happens to be Cirque du Soleil's Ovo, it might just be the one thing that can unite us all
