Gay news, Soccer world cup star on gay rumors, new movie about fag hag, dutch evangelical TV boss wants gay job, gay-bashing in Vancouver

15 06 2010

Freddie Ljungberg is the impossibly handsome world cup soccer star of Sweden. He is also a model for Calvin Klein. When asked about the gay rumors that have haunted him for years he says the following.” I don’t mind it at all, I am proud of it. I think gay people have amazing style so it is a compliment for me. Could any straight man give a better answer??

Jesse Archer has a new movie out in which he stars and also wrote part of the screenplay. It looks really good and is the follow-up of the equally great a Four Letter Word. It is about the oldest living fag-hag. I love the line: “Do you want my 8 inches??” ” What, are you gonna fuck me twice?”

Bert Dorenbos, former boss of Evangelical Broadcasting in the Netherlands, sent his resume to the COC(the biggest dutch gay organization) Not because he is so open-minded, but to protest a new law that would make it illegal for christian schools to NOT hire a gay teacher that is qualified for a job. Of course there is a huge difference between hiring a homophobe at a gay organization and hiring a gay christian teacher at a christian school. But I say hire him and let host leather parties or clean the darkrooms.

A gay couple in normally gay-friendly Vancouver saw 2 thugs peeing against their house last saturday night and when they confronted the men and asked them to leave they were given 5 punches to the head, called names and bitten like a dog.  Both men had to go to the hospital and have terrible scars. Hope the police catches those monsters.

Air traveler wakes up in hangar

10 04 2010

A British professor had to go to Vancouver for an important conference. That is a long flight( I know). It takes 22 hours. The man did everything to stay awake for the transfer at Heathrow but after take-off there he fell in a deep sleep and get up until a technician woke him 1.5 hours after his flight landed in a hangar in Vancouver. The crew apologized and said they were too busy getting people with wheel chairs of the plane. Lame excuse(probably BA). I have unfortunately never been able to sleep even a second on intercontinental flight even if it means being up for over 40 hours so I cannot really relate to the poor guy. I wish I was him sometimes, haha.





Olympics unfortunately over

1 03 2010

It were overall mediocre games with extreme sad lows like the death of the Georgian Luger, the death of Joanne Rochette’s mom and the at times very bad circumstances(trouble with the ice at the speed skating, conditions on the ski slopes) and highs with dutch golden medals, extremely tight/nerve-wracking races and Canada winning a record amount of golden medals. The overall medal count and deciding who the winner is, proves to be difficult. What is more important, the amount of medals overall or the most gold??. My bf and I decided to be fair, the gold was 5 points, silver 3 and bronze 1. That makes Canada the winner, before the U.S and Germany in third. ¬†Norway is a strong number 4 and then there is a big gap. Holland is in 10th, pretty good. My personal highlight were the gold of Mark Tuitert, Ireen Wust and the great performances of the German biathlon girls. Biggest disappointment the disqualification of Sven Kramer at the 10k and the miscommunications at the team relay that cost a sure gold.





Olympics, wednesday and thursday

26 02 2010

Wednesday was not such a good day for the speed skating but it was known that the 5k would be the weakest distance fo the dutch ladies. Jorien Voorhuis ended in 10th place and Elma de Vries was number 11. The winner was the best woman for years on this distance, Martina Sablikova. Germany’s Stephanie Beckert was 2 but the difference between 1/2 was very small. Maybe next year it will be Beckert at number 1. She has made huge progress in the last 2 years. Canada’s Clara Hughes won the bronze at her 5th Olympics(summer as a bicyclist included) Today will be the start of the men’s and women’s pursuit. The dutch men are clear favorites with probably Korea and Norway as the numbers 2 and 3. U.S has a small chance for a medal. The dutch ladies had a horrible draw and have to face Germany first and title favorite Canada next if they beat Germany. I think Canada will win, Russia will be 2 and Germany or the Netherlands will end with the bronze.

With the skiing there has been a lot of talk between the catfight of American’s Lindsey Vonn and Julia Mancuso. Mancuso had complained about Vonn getting almost all media attention and then Vonn fell at the Giant Slalom which resulted in Mancuso having to ski again, after already having completed half of the track and she lost a sure medal in that race. Still I am team Vonn, she seems nicer.

Johnny weir had the perfect comeback after people asked him what he though about the reporters that said boys will not be allowed to figure skate because parents are afraid they will turn into Johnny. He thinks kids should only be so lucky as to turn into him. I totally agree with him. He is a two-time Olympian, World Championships medal winner, U.S champion and has his own reality show on the Sundance Channel. Nothing wrong with that.





Olympics day 11, drama for Sven Kramer

24 02 2010

How unlucky was that. You are around 3 seconds faster than the number 2 at the time and seem to be easily cruising to a win and then your coach makes a mistake, thinks you are in the wrong lane and tells you to go and take the inner lane instead of the outer and you do just that because you only have a split-second to think. Just so sad and the Netherlands with 6.7 million people watching(around 2/5th of the population at 11 at night was mourning this. One of the darkest days in dutch sport. Feel not only sorry for Kramer but also his coach Kemkers. People saying he deserved this because he was rude to an american reporter after a win at the 5K are just ignorant. I think that if a dutch reporter would have asked Peyton Manning, minutes after winning the Super Bowl, if he would say his name and the sport he plays in the camera, I bet he would not have done that either. Korea’s Lee was handed the gold, silver for Skobrev and bronze for dutch De Jong.

At the biathlon it was time for the team relay and the German ladies were already handicapped before the event started. Two-time Gold medal winner at these Olympics, Magdalena Neuner, did not start because she was too tired after all her races. Germany won bronze anyway, behind Russia and France.





Olympics day 5

18 02 2010

One another day, another disappointment for the dutch speed skaters in Vancouver. The big favorite for the title on the 1000m was Shani Davis and he totally did what he had to do and won the race. 3 Dutch skaters were in the race for the silver though but in the end they ended 4, 5, and 6. Mo from Korea won silver after his gold on the 500m and Chad Hedrick from the U.S won bronze and that should have gone to a dutch guy, they beat him the whole year around on this distance. Groothuis ended 4th and had a nasty bacterial infection for 2 weeks that only cleared up this weekend so he did as good as he could, the other 3 were just not good enough yesterday.





Olympics day 4

17 02 2010

The speed skating did not go as planned today on the 500m for the ladies. In the first heat medal favorite Annette Gerritsen(cute and good) fell after having a great opening. Then the other great dutch short distance skater Margot Boer ended 4th. The worst place at the Olympics to have. Still she raced good so has a great tournament ahead at the rest of her distances. Winner was Sang-Hwa Lee from Korea who beat the two favorites Jenny Wolf and Beixing Wang. Korea has 2 gold and a silver so far with the speed-skating!

With the biathlon there was gold for Magdalena Neuner at the 10k pursuit. She was a little behind Kuzmina at the start but was very strong today, even 2 penalties did not stop her. Kuzmina won silver after Sundays gold. Another bronze was for France, this time Brunet. German Andrea Henkel had one of the quickest races of the day and came in 10th after starting as the number 27, even after 3 mistakes. Wilhelm and Hauswald were 12/16. Bryan Ferry from Sweden won gold at the men’s pursuit, before Christoph Sumann and Vincent Jay.
