KOD – Japan To Jupiter

Stereogum recaps the first release from Kitchens Of Distinction in 19 years: London’s Kitchens Of Distinctions were a British guitar band in the late ’80s – mid ’90s, but they never really fit into any of the highly publicized scenes of that time and place: too lucid to be considered shoegazers, too dreamy to be Britpop. Because of that, they …

Today’s Money Beg From The ADF

The Alliance Defending Freedom, which works nationwide to thwart freedom, has issued a money beg declaring that “foreign warheads” are aimed at the religious liberties of Christians.  Examples of these non-domestic nukes somehow include the Supreme Court rulings that legalized sodomy and outlawed the death penalty for minors.

Limbaugh On Miley Cyrus

“Would these erudite, elite women be as upset if Miley Cyrus had twerked with another woman instead of Robin Thicke? It would not be an issue. I’ll bet you a dollar, and I have a few of those, that it would not be an issue. Obama might have called Miley to praise her for her heroism had she twerked with …

Highest Paid Celebrities Of 2013

From the annual ranking just issued by Forbes: Madonna‘s latest album, MDNA, was a flop. Her 12th studio album, Madonna sold fewer than 1 million copies of MDNA in the U.S. and the singles, like “Give Me All Your Luvin,” failed to impress on the pop music scene. But the tour that the Material Girl launched to go along with …

Porno Pete: Drudge Should Come Out

Conversation’s over! Got a little too close to the ongoing cover that right wingers give homocon Matt Drudge! Still, that’s the first time I’ve gotten a prominent anti-gay activist to even grudgingly concede that Drudge should come out if he’s gay. I’ve saved the above conversation to Storify just in case it should come in handy later. RELATED: Here’s the …

“I was asked by a viewer whether she had a right to leave her church because she had been asked to transport an elderly man who had AIDS and about whose condition she had not been informed.

Cory Booker On Rumors That He’s Gay

“People who think I’m gay, some part of me thinks it’s wonderful. Because I want to challenge people on their homophobia.

Pat Robertson: Gay Men Use Special Rings To Cut People And Give Them HIV

This is possibly the most outrageous thing Pat Robertson has ever said. Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson told co-host Terry Meeuwsen that gay men in cities like San Francisco attempt to spread HIV/AIDS to others by cutting them with a special ring when shaking hands.
