Hit TV show Dallas returns to TNT

Hit TV show Dallas returns to TNT

NEW YORK (AP) — “I hate to hit a man below the belt, but you know I will,” says J.R. Ewing. “No hard feelings.”

No hard feelings at all, J.R. We’re just feeling thrilled to have you back.

And as he resumes his special grade of sweet-crude villainy, TNT’s resurrection of “Dallas” does the near-impossible. It reclaims the soapy and sinister charm that made this saga a hit for 14 seasons until relinquishing its hold on CBS’ Friday lineup in 1991. And it ushers in a new generation of at-odds characters to supplement such timeless personalities as J.R. (Larry Hagman), his former wife Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) and his ever-upright brother Bobby (Patrick Duffy), while folding in contemporary plot lines, notably the push by Bobby’s son Christopher to profit big from renewable energy — which, of course, is heresy to J.R. and his own son John Ross, whose veins flow with oil.


Marriage HAS NOT Always Been Between a Man and Woman

Marriage <em>HAS NOT</em> Always Been Between a Man and Woman

“Same-sex unions aren’t a recent invention. Until the 13th century, male-bonding ceremonies were common in churches across the Mediterranean. Apart from the couples’ gender, these events were almost indistinguishable from other marriages of the era. Twelfth-century liturgies for same-sex unions — also known as “spiritual brotherhoods” — included the recital of marriage prayers, the joining of hands at the altar, and a ceremonial kiss. Some historians believe these unions were merely a way to seal alliances and business deals. But Eric Berkowitz, author of Sex and Punishment, says it is “difficult to believe that these rituals did not contemplate erotic contact. In fact, it was the sex between the men involved that later caused same-sex unions to be banned.” That happened in 1306, when the Byzantine Emperor Andronicus II declared such ceremonies, along with sorcery and incest, to be unchristian.”

Popwired Is Crashing Netroots Nation 2012

Every year a bunch of liberal web-dorks meet and discuss political equality at Netroots Nation, a convention/perpetual drink-up encouraging web users to challenge the authority of powerful jerks (that includes most Republicans; the MPAA and RCAA; globe-raping corporations; and any racist, sexist, classist, homophobes, generally speaking).

This year, we’re crashing the party in Providence, Rhode Island to teach folks a thing or two about media. Along the way, we’ll also provide you with perverse stories and bits o’ knowledge from some of the convention’s experts on sexual freedom, LGBT marriage, being black, occupying Wall Street, and of course, getting unforgivably drunk.

You can also catch our wisdom nuggets throughout the weekend at our Twitter page.

Stay tuned!


Hollywood Theater will no longer be known as Kodak

Hollywood Theater will no longer be known as Kodak

One big name that likely won’t be at this year’s Oscars: Kodak.

The Eastman Kodak Co. received court approval Wednesday to end its sponsorship deal with the Hollywood theater that is the venue for the Academy Awards.

Kodak signed a $74 million deal for naming rights to the theater in 2000. But the struggling photography company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month and wanted to end its contract for naming rights of the glamorous Los Angeles theater as it tries to improve its finances.

The company’s financial advisers said in court documents that the benefits of having the company’s name on the 3,300-seat erstwhile Kodak Theatre aren’t worth the contract’s cost.

Kodak confirmed Wednesday that a U.S. Bankruptcy judge approved its request to end the deal.


Steve Jobs and his affect on the gay community

Steve Jobs and his affect on the gay community

Wednesday the world lost a creative visionary, a leader, and a great businessman. Apple Inc. Co-founder Steve Jobs, 56, lost his battle to pancreatic cancer. He brought the world what they all craved for: easy to use technology with user friendly designs and a modern flair. That’s not only where it stops though. Steve Jobs leave behind an amazing legacy as a  huge supporter of the gay community.

In 2008, Apple Inc. was at the forefront fighting for Gay Rights making a donation of $100,000 to fight the anti-gay Proposition 8 that was heavily publicized and battled in California proposing the banning of gay marriage.

Apple was also an early adopter of LGBT-friendly hiring practices and scored a perfect 100 in the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index for offering their employees LGBT-protections, domestic partner benefits, and diversity training—also setting a strong example for other large corporations.

And most recently, as Steve Jobs stepped down as CEO back in August, he hand picked his successor, Tim Cook, as the most powerful gay businessman in the world to run the Apple empire.

For me personally, being able to witness the progression of the changing computer technology whether it be a Windows or Mac, not only saw Steve Jobs as that man in the ugly black turtle neck and blue jeans, but I saw a man that changed the world… quite literally.

Apple products were synonymous with gays. Owning an Apple product was like owning up to being a rebel, a leader in a trend, something the gay community as you know probably fight day and night for. No longer are we stuck inside this corporate square box. We’re able to live our life simplistically thanks to his technology.

Steve, you literally brought out the creative side and inspired millions in this world. You will forever live in our history book as the innovator of our century.

Steve Jobs | 1955-2011


Colton Haynes: ‘Porn’ and MTV

by Trey C. on June 3, 2011
Colton Haynes: Porn and MTVUPDATE: At the request of our web host, the photos of Colton Haynes swapping tongue with another guy was removed to prevent our asses from being sued.

Actor Colton Haynes is back in the spotlight. This time he’s armed with an attorney. Back in 2006 photos of Colton Haynes kissing another guy for an issue of XY magazine made its circulation around the web.

The photographer of those photos, Sean Bentz sent an email out to hundreds of blogs requesting the images be removed, Popwired included. Of course we complied.

Little to say, Popwired knew something was up and we just learned today that Bentz and his lawyer were probably making their rounds to keep their client out of the gaydar because of Colton’s new show on MTV called ‘Teen Wolf’ which is debuting this weekend.

Really, Crazed Hits you don’t scare us

Really, Crazed Hits you dont scare us

EDITOR’S NOTE – So I got an interesting email today from a company called Popwired Music Group. I did a little Google search on them, which not surprisingly, brought up nothing. Anyways, they alleged us of infringing on their IP and wants us to transfer the domain name over to avoid legal action. Um, excuse me?

The company claims to have represented Key$ha (labeled with RCA) and many others. Anyways you can see the email their “counsel” sent and my unprofessional response after the jump. Crazedhits.com sounds really desperate for visitors, considering that Quantcast.com rated their monthly visits to be only 3,000.

Should we give in or argue this out? Let’s see how this all plays out.


OMG: Keyes compares gay marriage rights to plantation owners

OMG: Keyes compares gay marriage rights to plantation owners

“Granting homosexuals the right to marry is like granting plantation owners the right to own slaves.”

These are the words of three-time presidential hopeful Alan Keyes of the Republican Party. First of all I would really like to thank him for pointing out such a big issue that everyone has overlooked.

If Keyes’ analogy doesn’t represent all that is righteous and holy and you’re naive enough not to see the truth in his statement, that’s fine, cause God will forgive.

But, for the meantime, let us tell you what we think he really wanted to say:

Firstly, he knows that as a slave you have no rights; you must do whatever your master tells you. Similarly, if same sex-marriage is allowed, then straight men and women will have to do whatever the  homosexuals  want. Legalizing same sex-marriage will give homosexuals the power to marry whoever they want and straight men and women will have no say in it.

Secondly, we don’t have slaves anymore because we want equal rights for all. Slaves are also human beings and they too have the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. The 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments were added to the constitution to protect their rights. Similarly, the Defense of Marriage Act was enacted to protect the rights of straight people who are always tormented by homosexuals who have no moral values.

And finally, come on, oppression of black people isn’t anything at all like the oppression of homosexuals in today’s society. No, sir.

So many of you may have guessed by now that, with Keyes’ right-wing bigotry thinking, he’s probably 200-years-old. He has a lot of experience and knows how our society works more than anyone else so what he says must be correct.

I rest my case. Thank you Mr. Keyes for helping us find the righteous oh glorious light.

You all can read the full story here written by Keyes himself.
