If you know about Grindr, then this video pretty much needs no introduction. If you don’t know what Grindr is, well, it’s a gay “dating” app where it displays profiles of other people on the app who are near you by using geo-location on your phone. It has a…reputation for being quite…sexually oriented.
But then again, anyone who’s made any sort of foray into the world of online dating for gay men will know that that’s pretty unavoidable.
This is actually a clip from a longer documentary by Will Means that you can view here.
It seems that this Shanghai cinema just assumed that Thor 2 was in fact a love story between two powerful, godly men with flowing hair and rippling muscles who…
Yep, I knew that me trying to post this would quickly turn into fan fiction. Seems a cinema in Shanghai accidentally put up this fan-photoshopped poster for Thor 2.
This can be seen as actually a really positive sign – even in Shanghai, a poster of two men looking quite intimate for an action movie (and not, say, Brokeback Mountain) wasn’t immediately recognised as fake. This could be seen as that homosexuality is becoming a little more normalised, and that it isn’t totally outrageous that the main character of a superhero movie may have a homosexual love interest.
If only that would actually happen now.
I’m sure you’ve all thought it at some point – what would Wolverine look like in drag? I mean, he wears spandex so I don’t think it’s too far fetched to imagine him in a dress…
Well neither did David J Prokpetz. Since Marvel is now a part of Disney, he thought hey hey, Wolverine is totally meant to be a princess – and he should be dressed as such. So he commissioned some Tumblr artists to do it and…well…it’s magical.
This is apparently a first instalment of a series that will be premiering in America on October 28th after Conan in a show called “The Pete Holmes Show”.
Professor X tries explaining to Wolverine that his powers are a liability in this sketch that debuted during “The Pete Holmes Show” panel at New York Comic Con.
Did you like this sketch? Be sure to watch more installments of “Ex-Men” on the “Pete Holmes Show.” We premiere on October 28th after “Conan,” and we’ll be on weeknights at midnight/11 central.
It’s pretty funny – and let’s admit it, there’s a nugget of truth here. Though he doesn’t seem to mention the fact that Wolverine’s ACTUAL mutant power is his rapid healing, not the adamantium skeleton (that was installed later, because of his healing ability) but still…gave me a good chuckle.
Because I hate Wolverine.
Yes, I said it. Jean Grey all the way baby! Telekinesis is totally the most awesome power. And she’s telekenetic AND psychic. Boom.
And then Storm. Because Aurora is such a damned badass. Go watch X-Men: The Animated Series and you’ll see the awesomeness that is Storm – “I SUMMON THE ARTIC WIIINNNNDDDDDSSS.” Love that crazy chick.
In Coburg, Germany, the Sea Star Aquarium a series of short-circuit, power outages has threatened the lives of it’s inhabitants.
In the effort to solve the mystery, electricians and some staff members decided to take shifts sleeping on the floor to find out what caused the mysterious blackouts.
A spokesman said: “It was a serious matter because it shorted the electricity supply to the whole aquarium that threatened the lives of the other animals when water pumps ceased to work.”
The mystery was solved in three nights. The culprit was none other than Otto, the octopus!
The spokesman describes how the act was committed: “We knew that he was bored as the aquarium is closed for winter, and at two feet, seven inches Otto had discovered he was big enough to swing onto the edge of his tank and short out the 2000 Watt spot light above him with a carefully directed jet of water.”
Director Elfriede Kummer who witnessed the act said: “We’ve put the light a bit higher now so he shouldn’t be able to reach it. But Otto is constantly craving for attention and always comes up with new stunts so we have realised we will have to keep more careful eye on him – and also perhaps give him a few more toys to play with.
“Once we saw him juggling the hermit crabs in his tank, another time he threw stones against the glass damaging it. And from time to time he completely re-arranges his tank to make it suit his own taste better – much to the distress of his fellow tank inhabitants.”
Ladies and gents, this octopus is AMAZING! I don’t condone chaos, but this was a beautifully orchastrated one. We need more people like this octopus, don’t you think?
So the Sun recently posted this amazing article where “real” men strike the pose of the so-called “hot” men in the underwear ads.
For me, this collection of photos only goes to prove to me that my taste is so far from the mainstream: I find the “real” men so much more attractive than their “hot” counterparts. Give me that “real” bear posing for the Calvin Klein ad over Freddie Ljungberg any day of the week!
