Original Star Trekker, George Takei, Says He Lost Virginity to an ‘Attractive’ Man at 13 (Listen)

George Takei

*Well, you can look at this a couple of ways, I guess. TMI (too much information); or should we be feeling some kind of way because this was an obvious crime of pedophelia? It’s weird, seeing as the “victim” is what, like, 80 years old now? Well…79.

Damn, George. What are we suppose to think?

The new Taco Bell spokesman, hey, a brother’s gotta do what a brother’s gotta do, right? The new Taco Bell spokesman is defending the stance of mutually agreed upon sex with a 19-year-old “pretty attractive” blonde camp counselor when he was only 13.

“I was kind of uh … I thought he was attractive,” Takei, who came out as gay decades ago, admits. Continue reading

‘Birth of a Movement’ Streaming on PBS for Limited Time Only

Birth of a Movement

*One hundred years ago, blackface and other offensive media representations of African Americans were not only common, but celebrated. Few cultural moments encapsulate this more fully than D.W. Griffith’s “The Birth of a Nation” (1915), a notoriously Ku Klux Klan-friendly reimagining of history.

“Birth of a Movement,” a new film now streaming on PBS, tells the story of William Monroe Trotter, an African-American newspaper editor and activist, who, along with the then newly-formed NAACP, waged a battle against the film. Together, we unleashed a conflict that still rages today about race relations, representation, and the power of Hollywood. Continue reading

Six Flags Amusement Parks Add Immersive Virtual Reality To Roller Coasters…and Blow. Our. Minds.

*One of my greatest surprises after moving to the west coast seven years ago was the discovery of Six Flags amusement parks. I grew up just a stone’s throw from the midwest’s Cedar Point, which is widely known as the roller coast capital of the world. I still cherish the memories of my annual treks there as a kid, and didn’t imagine being close a park that could match the thrills I’d experienced at Cedar Point.

Then, I found Six Flags.

The one in my neck of the woods, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, was always a thrill, but got better in recent years with the addition of rides like Superman Ultimate Flight (which is the first ride I hit when I enter the park!) and The Joker, a new hybrid coaster that repurposed the foundation of one of the park’s old wooden out-and-backs and turned it into a scream machine that left me hoarse for the balance of my day there last summer.

During THAT ride, I had to suppress my repeated “F*** me!” screams, as there were small, impressionable children aboard.  (I can’t wait to ride it again!) Continue reading

Heartbreaking Video of Woman Confronting Cheating Boyfriend Goes Viral (Watch)

Cheating boyfriend

*Whew! Videos like the one below (scroll down) which shows a young woman, Kourtney Jorge, and her ex-boyfriend, Leonard Long III, talking through problems of infidelity make some of us happy that we are not currently in a relationship. I mean really, who needs the hassle? But the fact that the video has Twitter buzzing (it immediately went viral, garnering hundreds of thousands of likes and retweets almost immediately) also reveals our innate attraction to other peoples’ drama.

The hashtag #Hurtbae is now official.

The six-minute-44-second video titled, Why They Cheated: Two Exes Confront Each Other About Infidelity, was done for the website, The Scene, and while the ex-boyfriend remains composed and shows no sense of remorse, the woman is, of course, just the opposite:

…emotional and pitiful looking throughout.

The two are sitting opposite each other as the words on the screen bring the words being spoken in confession by the male read:

“I did everything.”

The woman, obviously a glutton for punishment, asks for further clarification:

“Like what?”

“I had sex with other girls. I did everything.” Continue reading
