Britney pulls a Janet & Courtney pulls a Courtney.

Well, it had to happen. With as much as Britney jumps around on stage it seems as if she's finally had a nipple slip of her own. I first read about this news at Whatevs.org (Welcome back, Grambo!) and then at Defamer. They both got the news from The Sun Newspaper (UK).



Apparently, this photograph was taken a while ago (while Britney was still on tour) and was only recently discovered when the photographer developed a roll of film he had forgotten about. Her nipple slipped out when a dancer's arm caught her PVC top.

If you click the photo above you can see the larger, uncensored photograph. It could be real but who really knows in this world of Photoshop manipulation?

In other Brit news, it seems that the last guy she married, Jason Alexander, has given an exclusive interview to News of the World. In the article, he proves to be a real classy guy by stating that:

"I wanted to make love to her and she wasn't shy in showing what she wanted. We started off in the bedroom kissing. She was good at that?she was good at everything. She was an animal in bed."

"At times she was noisy. She didn't call me any names, she just moaned. We didn't use any precautions either."

"The sex was mind-blowing and rough. We did it in every position you could think of. It was so wild we managed to fall off the bed together."


He sounds like a real ace guy. I mean it took him 7 months before he sold his story (a story, mind you, where he comes off looking like a massive stud; such a stud that the hottest pop star in the world was sex-crazed for him) to a British tabloid. Man, she knows how to pick 'em don't she? Follow the link above to read the rest of the tale.

And now the Courtney Love news. Of course you remember that a warrant was issued for her arrest on her 40th birthday and that she was later hospitalized for an apparent miscarriage on that same day. Well the New York Post Page Six has a blow-by-blow run down of "exactly what happened".



Highlights include:

An NYPD spokesman said Love had to be handcuffed because she was "acting in an irrational manner." The cuffs were removed at the hospital.

The singer-actress was later spotted in the lobby and heard complaining loudly that "today is my birthday and I had an abortion," a source quoted Love as telling cops.

On the street outside Manhattan Criminal Court after she showed up five hours late on misdemeanor-assault charges, Love blurted out to the columnist, "I'm pregnant." ... Then she pointed to a lit cigarette in her hand and said, "But not to the point where I have to quit smoking!"


Follow the link above to read all the gory details.

Oi! Whatever would I do without my favorite Divas?! Now all I need is for Whitney to take another pilgrimage to the Middle East for another jaunt with Jesus to make my week. I suppose the Bobby news from the weekend will have to suffice ... But it is only early Tuesday morning!

The party's over.

So I had a fun lunch with my parents. We ate at my favorite Chinese restaurant, Dragon Palace (I had the Amazing Chicken; no really, that's what it's called). When we got home my mom decided to whip out my old report cards. Ah, it was a nice trip down memory lane. I remember how much I loved Mrs. Smith (5th grade; she gave me all A's and S's for satisfactory) and how much I hated Mrs. Lee (4th grade; she was a major bitch who gave me C's and checkmarks [which meant "need improvement"] all over the place ... The bitchface!). My mom was also fawning over cards that I had made for her in elementary school. Apparently, I've always had big, bold handwriting. And on a totally unrelated note, my car hit 70,000 miles too!



God, everything is getting old now!

So anyways, I got home as fast as I could because Erik and I were taking Stephanie out for her birthday. Steve had to work late so he couldn't make it but Matt and Ame were able to join us. We get to Stephanie's and Matt and Ame had a card and flowers for me for my birthday!



How amazing are my friends?! And Matt is now the third man to ever give me flowers (the first was Erik and the second was Mark) ... Wee!!! Anyways, back to Stephanie ... She loved her gifts even though the look on her face in the pictures belie that fact:


The Birthday Princess reads her card from Erik.


The Birthday Princess loves the blouse that Erik got for her.


The Birthday Princess loves the silver cuff (a la Wonder Woman's bracelet) that I got for her.


She really did like her presents. She was just making faces because I was taking pictures of her ... The brat!!! She was awesome enough to get me a gift card for Zumba; the best.food.ever. place! So then we took her to dinner at the California Pizza Kitchen. She had a kickball game (she and Steve are on a Monday kickball league too) so we had to eat fast. Food was great but the service wasn't so much.

We hauled ass to get her home and then went to watch her team play their first game. They beat the other team (an entire team of Honchos I might add) pretty handily.

It was a pretty fun day but let me tell you; it feels as if it has been my birthday for YEARS! The parties are done; I'm another year older; The end.

Now we are going to watch I Love The 90's on VH-1



We are going to revel in nostalgia. Ah, the early 90's. I was but a lad in high school; so young, so very young. I was all that and a bag of chips! Word!

Anyways, I'm audi!

UPDATE: I would be remiss if I did not mention this bit of sad news that was reported today. It seems that Louise, Weezie, Jefferson is really movin' on up ... to a de-luxe apartment in the sky-y-y:

Isabel Sanford of 'The Jeffersons' Dies



LOS ANGELES - Actress Isabel Sanford, best known as "Weezie," Louise Jefferson on the television sitcom "The Jeffersons," died of natural causes, her publicist said Monday. She was 86.

I loved Isabel on The Jeffersons. She will be missed.

Older, Wiser.

First things first, there are other birthdays today that I have to give shout-outs to:

Stephanie, Erik's best friend in the world and soon-to-be bride, shares July 12th with me which I think is the coolest shit in the world! I've said it before but I wouldn't want the share today with anyone else.

Other July 12th birthdays:
  1. Roman Emperor Julius Caesar (100 B.C.).
  2. Actor Topher Grace (That 70's Show) is 26.
  3. Olympic gold medal figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi is 33.
  4. Actress Cheryl Ladd (Charlie's Angels) is 53.
  5. Fitness guru Richard Simmons is 56.
  6. Singer-musician Christine McVie (Fleetwood Mac) is 61.
  7. Comedian Bill Cosby is 67.
Hi! I think this is a pretty kick-ass list of birthdays, if I say so myself.

So okay, okay, the birthday business is done (for now) let's see what else is going on lately. Lord, Bobby Brown is in trouble again. This weekend a judge ordered Bobby to surrender to police or he was going to get locked up again. I think Whitney got all Whitney-Mariah on him and made his stupid ass turn himself in.

Bobby Brown Posts Bond on Battery Charge

R&B singer Bobby Brown turned himself in to jail officials Sunday night — a few hours before a court-imposed deadline — and was released after posting a $2,000 bond on charges he hit his wife, singer Whitney Houston.

Seriously, the saga of Whitney & Bobby is so insane! It seems like every few weeks one or the other is in the headlines, whether it be because of legal troubles or, well, I guess it's only been for legal troubles.



That's right Whitney, pray to Jesus ... Woman, pray!

In other stupid-ass news, have you heard that the Republicans are trying to figure out a way to postpone the election if there is a terrorist attack? NO FUCKING WAY CAN WE LET THEM CONTROL ELECTION DAY!!! If they can steal an election under "normal" circumstances (though I would hardly call a scenario where the presidential election-deciding state is governed by the "winning" candidate's brother "normal") can you imagine what they might get away with if they change the date?!? There would be millions of confused people who might not know of the change or how to cast a vote properly. NO FUCKING WAY!!! I hate this administration! All they do is scare the hell out of us and then take advantage of the terror they inflict upon us! Grrr I am so angry over this kind of talk. No way ... We can't let them do this! I will keep on top of this and report any news as it develops.

We know who we have to vote for in November:

Kerry Vows To Restore 'Truth' to Presidency



President Bush has governed in a dishonest fashion, trampling values on every issue except fighting terrorism and leaving voters "clamoring for restoration of credibility and trust in the White House again," John F. Kerry and John Edwards said in an interview ... "The value of truth is one of the most central values in America, and this administration has violated" it, Kerry said in an interview with The Washington Post aboard the Democrats' campaign plane Friday. "Their values system is distorted and not based on truth."

Amen to that!

My parents wanted me to come over today so I think I'm going to spend the day with them. Erik and I are meeting Steve and Stephanie for her birthday celebration later on tonight. I was going to try and get my kitty Majik today (she's going to be living with me again) but I might have to postpone picking her up until tomorrow. More later ...

July 12, 1974

At precisely 10:31 AM THIRTY (motherfucking) years ago I was born. Insane, I know! But if I learned anything just this past weekend it's that as long as you have the love and affection of a good man and good friends then it doesn't matter how old you are; not in the least.

This birthday weekend was just amazing for me. The celebrations, the camaraderie, the love ... I was hap-py! Erik and I spent the last moments of my "twenties" making the sweet love and when the clock hit 12:00 AM last night/this morning we were in each other's arms blissful and content. I couldn't have asked for a better way to turn thirty (Ugh, it's still going to take some time getting used to saying it out loud).

So as I enter my third decade of existence I can honestly say that I have lived a pretty fantastic life. I've forged some great relationships, accomplished a lot of my goals and found true love. What more can I ask for?

With that said, Happy Birthday to Me!
