Franco: “Maybe I’m Just Gay”
By Advocate.com Editors
James Franco has played a good number of gay roles, most recently in the movies Milk and Howl—where he portrayed Harvey Milk’s longtime boyfriend Scott Smith and poet Allen Ginsberg, respectively. As a result, he’s faced a lot of questions about his own sexual orientation.
The actor, who told The Advocate last summer that he is straight, is now raising eyebrows by suggesting otherwise in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“There are lots of other reasons to be interested in gay characters than wanting myself to go out and have sex with guys,” Franco tells EW. “And there are also lots of other aspects about these characters that I’m interested in, in addition to their sexuality. So, in some ways it’s coincidental, in other ways it’s not. I mean, I’ve played a gay man who’s living in the ‘60s and ‘70s, a gay man who we depicted in the ‘50s, and one being in the ‘20s. And those were all periods when to be gay, at least being gay in public, was much more difficult. Part of what I’m interested in is how these people who were living anti-normative lifestyles contended with opposition. Or, you know what, maybe I’m just gay.”
Speedo-wearing Santas ran the streets of Boston, Toronto, Chicago, and Atlanta over the weekend to raise money for various charities.
The event kicked off in Boston 11 years ago and has since spread to multiple cities throughout the United States and Canada. Included in the list of charities the runs raise money for are a number of LGBT and HIV/AIDS research organizations.

H.S. Wrestler on Trial for “Butt Drag”
By Michelle Garcia
A 17-year-old high school wrestler has been expelled from school and charged with sexual battery for using a controversial wrestling move that has been deemed legal for decades.
Preston Hill, a Buchanan High School student from Clovis, Calif., was punished for his use of the “butt drag,” in which a wrestler grabs his opponent’s butt cheeks and places his finger in the opponent’s anus for leverage, according to the Fresno Bee. Hill’s trial before the Fresno County Superior Court begins Thursday.
Hill’s father said coaches taught his son the “butt drag” when he was in middle school and that it was a common move. The Clovis police, however, said Hill went too far when he inserted his fingers deeply into a freshman teammate at a July 15 practice session. The unidentified freshman’s father said Hill targeted his son because the 14-year-old stood up to Hill for bullying. Now Hill’s friends who are still in school are bullying the freshman student for speaking up about the encounter in July.
Hill was captain of the team and was up for several college scholarships. He is now being home-schooled and taking additional classes at Center for Advanced Research and Technology in Clovis.
In 2007, South Dakota wrestler Jerome Hunt, then 17, was found guilty and sentenced to probation after being charged with rape for performing the same move on at least six other wrestlers.
I’ve always loved ‘Jocks’ even though they don’t always love me back, lol.
I have fantasized about so many of them. One fantasy plays out like a football game. More like Australian Rules Football or Rugby than American Football and they guys wear very little in the way of uniforms. Maybe just a loincloth would do the job.
The object would be to ‘outscore’ your opponent on the field of play. The reward would be something very special indeed. After the final whistle blows and the victor is crowned a special post-game show would take place center field. All the action would be shown on the enormous HD screens with close-ups and slow-motion replays.
The show would start with showers where the losers lather up, rinse and towel dry the victors. Once the victors are freshly bathed the losers clean themselves, too. Next up, the heroes are given deep tissue massages with scented oils by the fallen ones. You can guess what’s coming up next, yes?
That’s right – a round of unbridled lustful sex where the winning team is ‘pleasured’ by the losing team. Each hero is serviced by each loser in turns. Then the domination begins. Heroes take turns plowing the losers as forcefully as they like and for as long as it takes.
It’s not all bad for the losers, they are given release as well. After the heroes are finished with them they service then dominate each other until everyone gets their ‘happy ending’.
Of course, while this show is taking place center field the crowd is free to carry on with each other in the stands. Every body leaves the stadium physically spent and with smiles on their faces – eager for the next game!
There is a theory that an infinite number of universes exist and that every possible scenario actually does happen in one universe or another. So I’m thinking my imaginary N.S.L. (National Sexball League) actually exists somewhere and one of my other selves just left a NSL game with a smile on his face!
Natural Porn Killers
Returned To Florida To Face Murder Charge
The 2nd porn performer suspected in the Pasco County sex party murder is back in Florida. Jason Andrews (known also as Addison from SeanCody) was booked into the Land O Lakes Dentention Center late Tuesday night. US Marshals arrested Andrews last Thursday in Chattanooga, Tennessee where he was working as a manager of a billiards club.
Before the New Port Richey murder, and his arrest in Tennessee, Andrews was a bisexual Chicago DJ known to speak with a British accent, although his Pasco County charge report says he was born in Lungstahl, Tennessee. His chiseled jaw and good looks landed him roles in countless gay porn videos. Amanda Logue was a married, bleach-blonde Georgia woman who once owned a lingerie shop, dabbled in prostitution and starred in several X-rated videos herself.
Together, investigators say they stabbed and bludgeoned a 41-year-old tattoo shop owner to death with a sledgehammer — and hatched some of their plans in typo- and expletive-laden text messages.
“I’m so glad you’re really commited to this take. Keep eyes for a knife, etc for me!” Andrews typed on his BlackBerry hours before the slaying, according to a transcript of the messages included in court records.
Logue replied in a nearly incomprehensible text that she was excited — and she wanted to have sex after they killed him.
Nearly two months after Dennis “Scooter” Abrahamsen was found dead in his New Port Richey home, Logue and Andrews were indicted by a grand jury on first-degree murder charges. Logue is being held without bail at the Pasco County Jail — her attorney didn’t return calls for comment — and Andrews was arrested Thursday in Chattanooga, Tenn.
Pasco County investigators say the pair killed Abrahamsen in the early morning of May 15 and swiped $6,000 cash, his credit cards and a video camera.
Abrahamsen had hired Logue — whose porn name is “Sunny Dae” — to work at a sex party at his house, and police said that’s when Logue and Andrews set him up. They traded dozens of text messages about their homicidal plan, police said.
According to an affidavit, Logue would later deny that she had anything to do with the killing and claim Andrews was the one who bludgeoned Abrahamsen.
“Logue told (the detective) that Andrews grabbed the back of her hair then twisted her arm behind her back. Andrews forced her to view Abrahamsen’s crushed skull and told her that’s what would happen to her if she told anyone.“
Logue and Andrews met on the set of a porn video late last year and fell in love — even though Logue was married to a man in Leesburg, Ga., authorities and friends said. Her husband did not return phone calls from The Associated Press.
Andrews’ Chicago friends find it difficult to believe he was involved in the killing. The Facebook and MySpace pages for Andrews, under the name DJ Veritas, feature several video clips of him playing techno music in large clubs.
“He was a really straight up dude,” said Michael Sarkowicz, a Chicago club photographer.

Andrews, is featured in a HubPages article titled “Guys and Gals of Chicago You Should Know,” which refers to him only as DJ Veritas and refers to him as a “triple threat.”
“He is not only a DJ, but producer as well and dare we say a bit of eye candy,” the article says.
He was also known to some fans as Addison on an adult Web site, according to the Chicago GLBT blog and podcast “Feast of Fun.”
The 28-year-old Logue seemed like a decent person, said Kristen Cameron, a Florida-based model who met her last year. According to several profiles on modeling websites, Logue did bikini and fetish modeling.
“She was professional, prompt and seemed all around normal, well so I thought,” Cameron wrote in an e-mail to the AP. “She was nice to me and was a great model! I felt a connection to her since we both have southern backgrounds.“
But Cameron’s opinion changed this spring when she saw how Logue acted around Andrews, her new boyfriend.
“Amanda wasn’t the Amanda I knew,” Cameron wrote. “She wouldn’t talk, all she did was text with Jason.“
Andrews, Cameron said, was obnoxious and brash. He often bragged about his military service, of which Cameron was skeptical.
In April and May, according to their Twitter accounts, Logue and Andrews spent several weeks in Florida, shooting porn videos, ling on the beach and professing their love for each other. Photos on Logue’s Facebook show the pair grinning and hugging.
On May 14, Andrews posted a link to a pornographic photo of Logue and wrote on his Twitter account: “therealsunnydae and I are killing time waiting for a party to find us!“
The next day, detectives said, Abrahamsen hired Logue to have sex on camera during a party at his house. During the party, Logue texted her boyfriend several times, witnesses told investigators.
Text messages retrieved from Andrews’ BlackBerry show the couple discussed vinyl gloves, when other guests would leave Abrahamsen’s home and what was inside a safe.
According to an affidavit, everyone at the party left Abrahamsen’s home around 5 a.m. May 15 — except for Logue. Andrews waited outside in his car, still texting her.
“Just get him on his face either bash or tell me to get in and. Where to go,” Andrews wrote.
“K I’m horny! I’m getting him to play music,” Logue typed.
“Wicked. Ill just be waiting. Really. Take. Your. Time,” Andrews replied.
Abrahamsen was found dead in his house by a family member some 18 hours later, face down on a massage table with blood splattered on the walls and ceiling fan.
At 4:29 p.m. on May 16 — less than a day after the murder — Logue wrote on her Twitter account, using Andrews’ Twitter name “Hearveritas:” “Taking it easy with hearveritas! Laying around eating popcorn and watching movies!“
At 5:20 p.m., Andrews tweeted: “therealsunnydae and I wanna go watch a movie tonight, any suggestion?“
As detectives pieced together the slaying, Logue and Andrews were arrested May 18 in a neighboring county after trying to use Abrahamsen’s credit card at Home Depot.
But officials didn’t have enough evidence to link the pair to the killing, and released them. On May 19, she went home to her husband and child in Georgia.
On May 21, Andrews wrote on his Twitter account in Hebrew: “Amanda please let me know when you are ok, really. My heart can’t take the weight of the fear that I would never see you again.“
It’s unclear whether Logue ever saw Andrews’ plea, or whether she replied to him. On May 26, she was arrested in Georgia and taken to a Florida jail, where she awaits trial.
Watch this 1:29 long news clip on YouTube:
Chase Rice, 24, is a “Jackman” on a NASCAR pit crew and he is one of the contestants on Survivor: Nicaragua this season. We watched the premier last night during which he stripped down to his boxer-briefs and the network had to blur the image of his ‘package’ for the faint of heart, lol.
He is such a gorgeous hunk I just had to share the pics I found. He is reason enough to watch the show this season – hope he goes all the way – and I hope he wins the show, too.
