Liberated Negative Space o’ the Day: Breaking news — Cars apparently have sex

July 8, 2011


The sentient car has found love, and some jerk goes and bashes it. Is it any wonder the machines rise against us?

So that’s a Thing.

Look out for all those gayass cars out there, dudes. Don’t let them sell you organic locally grown leeks or get married or some shit: it totally cheapens the deep bond of love and committment found only in a traditional marriage between two straight cars. … And leeks are not in season in July. Amateur hour.

Hot Man Bein’ Hot of the Day: James Dean in action edition

January 10, 2010

Seems like you always see these iconic stills of the handsome and talented James Dean where he is very posed (to great effect, I’m not knocking that aspect), but the truth is he was one of those really energetic guys that can’t sit still. He always had to be moving around, even on set when he wasn’t the one before the cameras.

In fact, he got into photography and took dozens of pictures of his famous friends and coworkers while filming and even at parties — I think it was his way of turning the attention off himself because there is no way he could have stood the scrutiny otherwise. It was sort of a prop, but also a demonstration of his neverending interest in the world around him.

Above, camera-shenanigans with Sammy Davis, Jr. on the red carpet; Below, holding the camera and posing his sham girlfriend, Italian actress Pier Angeli. Pier married Vic Damone before her agreed-upon time was up of having to pretend to date the closeted Dean. Dean didn’t mind but the studios did. They had tried to get Natalie Wood first and she said no. She only did so after a short period of gristing the rumor mill to quiet the gossip columnists on the subject of Dean’s sexuality, but I have noted she mysteriously stopped going along with it, maybe getting to like him too well as a friend to participate in lies? dunno — not that she was above that cause she went on studio-sponsored dates with lots of dudes, e.g. Tab Hunter, to legitimize their “swinging-but-not-swinging-like-that-cause-we-are-manly-guys-as-is-evidenced-by-this-date-with-Ms.-Woods!” bachelor status; I have never heard exactly why she turned down their suggestion of long-terming it for fakes with James Dean. Anyway, so they found their Italian Natalie lookalike (I love Pier in her own right but I do not like that she supported that kind of repressive chicanery), but she didn’t end up going for it in the long run either, like I said, marrying Damone. This is a long caption and I feel like I should quit now. Sorry. I’m on Day-Quil. I think it’s strong stuff. (It’s been a long time since I used real drugs.)

So here are some pictures where I hope that sort of frantic, kinetic energy translates, even if the social situation constrained his mobility to crazy facial expressions.


All-time favorite picture via Nick Drake.

I’m a serious minded and intense little devil – terribly gauche and so tense that I don’t see how people can stay in the same room as me. I know I couldn’t tolerate myself. — James Dean


With Natalie on the set of Rebel Without a Cause, 1955.

They say you can’t get it on with a girl in a Porsche. That’s bullshit. If you don’t believe me, ask Natalie. (qtd in Against Death and Time, by Brock Yates.)

In a way, their halfhearted effort at the appearance of being in a relationship served Natalie just as well, because she was actually sleeping with director Nick Ray, who was 44 at the time, and it would have been a big scandal.


Trust and belief are two prime considerations. You must not allow yourself to be opinionated. You must say, “Wait. Let me see.” And above all, you must be honest with yourself.

Instead, Natalie and Elizabeth Taylor became two of his closest friends, and in the final analysis, that’s so much nicer and longer-lasting than sex partners.


Since I’m only 24 years old, guess I have as good an insight into this rising generation as any other young man my age. And I’ve discovered that most young men do not stand like ramrods or talk like Demosthenes. Therefore, when I do play a youth, such as in Warner Bros.’ Rebel Without A Cause, I try to imitate life.

Dig the sarcastically dutiful effort to mention the production company. Such the tongue-in-cheek fox.

I’m playing the damn bongos and the world can go to hell.

Girls like a boy who reads!


False advertising?

No, I am not a homosexual. But, I’m also not going to go through life with one hand tied behind my back.


I think the prime reason for living in this world is discovery.


Giving the thumbs up, about to take off in his ’55 Porsche Spyder 550, which he nicknamed “Little Bastard.” It was the car he was driving when he died.

There is no way to be truly great in this world. We are all impaled on the crook of conditioning. A fish that is in the water has no choice that he is. Genius would have it that we swim in sand. We are fish and we drown.

Daily Batman: Enter Batwoman

December 14, 2009

Originally named Kathy Kane, the character [Batwoman] was introduced as a love interest for Batman to disprove allegations of homosexuality in response to the backlash from the book Seduction of the Innocent (1954). (the wiki)


Lost the credit but it’s fairly obviously a character sketch from DC.

The modern incarnation of Batwoman, Kate Kane … is written as being of Jewish descent and as a lesbian in an effort by DC editorial staff to diversify its publications and better connect to modern day readership. Batwoman’s sexual orientation has been both criticized and praised by the general public and the character has been described as the highest profile gay character to appear in stories produced by DC Comics.

Oh, those crazy redheads.

Daily Batman: Batman’s heart is not in this gay thing

You are not selling him on the gay thing, Batman. Give it some jazz hands!

Daily Batman: Telling concern

November 17, 2009


Villain: “Not only are you doomed, but so is everyone else you’ve touched–!”

The Atom: “Jean Loring — I’ve signed her death warrant!”

The Flash: “I gave Iris West — the kiss of death!”

Green Lantern: “Carol Ferris — in deadly danger!”

Batman: “Robin — what have I done to you?”

Telling concern, dude.

Daily Batman: Meet me in the Batcave

Do not fret, little Robin.

Batman has had experience in That Area.

I am considering buying Amy Kiste Nyberg’s Seal of Approval off the amazon. Is this a good move? Worth it? Bueller?

PSA: Did You Know? Wesley Crusher’s Butthole is in Constant Jeopardy!

PSA: Wesley Crusher’s Butthole is in Constant Jeopardy!

Did You Know?

It gets lonely in deep space, and Starfleet chicks are mainly bleah (we’ll spotlight non-bleahs as time goes by, don’t you fret). Consequently, Wesley Crusher’s butthole is in constant jeopardy.


PICARD
A bit of good news, as well.
We’re to rendezvous with a
shuttlecraft carrying Wesley
Crusher. He’s on vacation from
the Academy.

Riker reacts, pleasantly surprised.

RIKER
Wesley… good. We’ll need an
extra hand around here.

Picard smiles — it’s clear they’re both looking
forward to seeing Wesley again.

Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 5, Episode 106, “The Game.”

Makes you feel sorry for the kid, yeah?

Remember how I mentioned not long ago that I’d spent an entire morning downloading pictures of Ashley Judd in this and her other featured episode as Ens. Robin Lefler on TNG? Yeah, I’ve finally had enough private time with that, and I’m ready to share. So look for that!

Daily Batman: Robin is also around, I guess

October 4, 2009

If this is not the face of a boy who’s just been caught wondering himself, I do not know what is.

“If Robin crops up in one of the new Batman films, I’ll be chaining myself up somewhere and refusing to go to work.” –Christian Bale, 2008, allegedly

Elizabeth: obviously I am not going to tell the world that my pal J has a man crush on Christian Bale
Elizabeth: I am merely saying that he came up in my daily batman today
the Cappy: you could, I’m comfortable


Everyone? My pal J has a man crush on Christian Bale. Perfectly normal, perfectly healthy.

Unlikely G: Super-straight not-gay Anderson Cooper edition

September 21, 2009

I realized it’s been a couple days since I remembered to do an unlikely g, so I thought I’d remedy that with ultra-g action. Super-straight Anderson Cooper and friendohs are all looking very, very g here.

You guys, Anderson Cooper is straight as all-git-out; I fail to see where these rumors of his gayness persist. What is gay about Amanda Lepore and the front man for the Scissor Sisters? Everyone here and everything about this picture is not at all something that would give certain less integritous movers and shakers in the political world of news exactly the ammunition on a decent, honest, not-grandstanding journalist for which they salivate. (Seriously, buddy, I forgive you cause I get it, but come on…the glass closet will never go away if rad guys like you let the pressure keep you in and don’t break it down)

“I’m not much for giving advice. That’s Bill O’Reilly’s job and he’s very good at it.” –Anderson Cooper, that sly silver fox!
