!! OMG, how hypocritical: Russia !!

Last week Russia seemed to be fine with hosting and promoting the extreme camp feyness that is the Eurovision Song Contest, but they shut down a gay rights parade that was happening on the same day as the Eurovision finale:

In a decision that smacks of fiscally influenced hypocrisy, the Russian powers that be have banned an unsanctioned gay rights parade in Moscow that has been called to coincide with tomorrow’s annual extravaganza of kitsch, the Eurovision Song Contest final. What the authorities have failed to recognise is that Eurovision is the gayest thing to happen to Russia. Ever.

How rude!

!! OMG, how anticipatory: Barricades in The Castro !!

The San Francisco Police Department has been placing barricades around The Castro in anticipation of demonstrations on Thursday if the Prop 8 ruling comes through the California Supreme Court. Either ruling will mostly be cause for celebration or protest. And it’s all very apropos considering Thursday is the 30th anniversary of the WHITE NIGHT RIOTS. So put on your party hats and then put on your helmets over your party hats in preparation for this monumental decision!

!! OMG, so ridiculous: 2M4M !!


MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow recently pointed out the ridiculousness of the National Organization for Marriage’s campaign of “2 Million for Marriage” and its acronym, 2M4M. Amaze-balls USA. This comes just after conservatives started throwing tea in the water calling themselves TeaBaggers
See the NOM’s PSA against gay marriage after the jump, in which they call themselves a “rainbow coalition”. Eeeee *pulls at collar*.
Scooped from Parker.

!! OMG, how eligible: Chris Hughes !!

Chris Hughes deserves a break. After having made millions as a co-founder of Facebook, and helping change the world for the better by masterminding Barack Obama’s online campaign, the baby-faced Harvard grad has already accomplished more in his 25 years than most people could even dream of doing. Fast Company ponders his future in their current issue, but the one important question that OMG would put forward about this out-and-proud whiz kid: Does he have a boyfriend? (via Gawker)
After the jump, watch an old video of Chris (sporting Corbin Fisheresque surfer hair) describing what exactly this new-fangled Facebook technology is all about.

!! OMG, it’s not funny: Beat 360 !!

03.16.09.geithner.obama.jpg
Our sweetie-daddy, Anderson Cooper, can do no wrong…but his followers can. Andy launched a DLISTED STYLE “Caption This” style feature on his the 360 website. Readers are supposed to write their own captions for political photos, like the one above which garnered the following gems:

Wow, this is just like the set of Spin City. Hey was that Heather Locklear?

C’mon, make it fast, I gotta use the restroom.

Is that a shoe in that reporters hand?

And those were the funny ones. See more Beat 360s HERE. MethinksPUNDIT KITCHEN already has this covered, though.
