I’M BAAAAAAAACK!

AHS-Madison-Surprise-Bitch

As many of you have noticed, there has been a suspension notice on the homepage of this site for the past few weeks. Needless to say, I was furious when it happened, but mostly because I was not informed of the reason. Eventually, I did find out and it turns out that it was mostly a gross misunderstanding of content and difference of opinions, I suppose. Anyway, WordPress and I did come to an agreement, and I am back in business! Let me add, though, that as infuriating as this experience was, the WordPress Community Guardians are wicked awesome and the support from them was nothing short of remarkable!

Posting is going to be light for the next few days, but hopefully I’ll get back into the swing of things by next week.

American Horror Story Freak Show Episode 11 “Magical Thinking”: My Unsolicited Review

AHS-Elsa-WTF-Face

WARNING: CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS. 

Allow me to preface this review by pointing out that Matt Bomer guest starred in one episode of AHS and stripped down to his undies. Now, Neil Patrick Harris is here and he bares his butt for the camera. If this is the effect Ryan Murphy has on out gay actors who guest star on AHS, may I please nominate Luke Evans and Ricky Martin for future episodes? Ok, on to the recap!

On the previous episode of AHS, Jimmy had been arrested for one of Dandy’s murder sprees, and we learned that his lobster hands had been amputated by Stanley. This episode picked right up from there. Inducing sickness in Jimmy with some sort of non-fatal poison, Stanley managed to hijack Jimmy from prison and, although he assures Jimmy that only one of his hands would be needed to afford “a good lawyer”, Jimmy wakes up in hospital to find both his arms ending in bloody, bandaged stumps.

The relationship between Jimmy and Dell progresses, and seems to even reach an all-time high, with Dell confiding in Jimmy about his painful childhood as a freak among freaks, while he spoon-feeds Jimmy his dinner. When Jimmy is about to be transported back to prison, Dell – on Elsa’s orders – goes to rescue him together with Amazon Eve, and he kills two police officers in the process, though he, himself, sustains a bullet wound.

The main attraction of this episode was, undoubtedly, Chester (Neil Patrick Harris), who is a travelling salesman/magic aficionado who quickly becomes the object of desire of the twins (who, by the way, are on a relentless mission to lose their virginity). Neil Patrick Harris delivered an awesome – if incredibly creepy – performance as Chester and, at this point, I’m torn between feeling sorry for him, and being wary of him. Though he has the ability to be extremely charming, the guy is a definite psycho, and has an unnatural obsession with his puppet, Marjorie (voiced and played by Jamie Brewer, which was all kinds of HELL YEAH AWESOME!), who somehow appears as a real, living girl to his twisted, deranged eyes. Add this to the fact that Elsa decides to sell him the freakshow, and we’ve got a delicious recipe for disaster!

Show me the rest of the review and possible NSFW GIFs, dammit!

Phylicia Rashad Speaks Out On Bill Cosby Rape Accusations

Bill Cosby; Phylicia Rashad

“Forget these women. What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it’s orchestrated. I don’t know why or who’s doing it, but it’s the legacy. And it’s a legacy that is so important to the culture…. Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV. And it’s worked. All his contracts have been cancelled… This show represented America to the outside world. This was the American family. And now you’re seeing it being destroyed. Why?”

These are apparently direct quotes from Phylicia Rashad, taken while speaking to Roger Friedman of Showbiz 411

This, boys and girls, may very well be an excellent opinion. You know what isn’t so excellent, though? The thousands of sexual assault victims who never report the crimes committed against them because they’re far too scared that the rest of us will take the side of the perpetrators and not believe them, the victims.

Sure, there have been cases where reports of rape have, in fact, been false, and an innocent person’s reputation (or life) is ruined because of it. I also believe that the idea of rape is such a vile one that it is natural for many of us to want to believe that it never happened, and we therefore choose to remain in denial over rape claims, especially when they’re made against someone whom we know.

However, when we have no idea if someone is making up rape accusations, and there is no actual evidence that they are, a general rule of thumb would be to not go around publicly bashing them as liars, effectively making it that much more difficult for other future rape victims to call out their attackers. Particularly in situations where the allegations don’t actually have anything to do with you, instead of ranting about nonsense like “legacies” and “orchestrations”, it’d probably be best to just shut the fuck up.

Hey guys, this is just a reminder of how awesome you are! Today, I’d like you to understand that, although we must do our best to be good to people, there are some people who, for whatever reason, will never like us… and you know what? That’s okay! Really, it’s their problem and not ours. It certainly shouldn’t stop us from the best that we can be, especially to those who appreciate it. Our primary responsibility is to be good to everyone… not to be liked by everyone. Happy smiling!

Florida Scores A Victory for Marriage Equality

Rainbow Florida

After ages and ages of refusing to back down against maintaining Florida’s ban on same-sex marriage, FL Attorney General, Pam Biondi, must have finally realised that she was fighting a losing battle. As you should have heard by now, Florida has become the latest state to secure a victory for marriage equality!

Already, hundreds of same-sex couples have taken the opportunity to finally become legally wed. This is major good news so early in the year and it begs the question: by the end of 2015, will marriage equality be had in every state in America?

Let’s Take A Moment To Appreciate Colton Haynes’ Sexiness

Ah, Colton! One day he will realise that the two of us are meant to be together, abandon all things Hollywood, and run away with me in eternal bliss.

Okay, so that’s never going to happen, but it doesn’t mean that I can’t very well fantasize about the impossibility. Colton Haynes, the chiselled-face Adonis of hit shows Teen Wolf and Arrow, is this “Sexiness Appreciation” honouree. Unfortunately, his only prize is our unwavering lust and adulation, but in this snarky, judgemental world, that’s a lot more than very many celebrities receive!

Gaze upon one half of the specimen that physical perfection decided to take human form in (Matt Bomer is obviously the second half), with these images. One more NSFW GIF after the jump.

Your Daily Smile

Howdy, everyone. Just a small reminder that as great as it is to have people be kind to us, it’s often more important that we show kindness to others. It’s a really great feeling knowing that you were the cause of brightening up someone’s day… so get to work on that! Happy smiling!
