Death to the Internet Craze?

by Accidental Bear

What constitutes an ‘internet craze’? A certain number of copy cats? Being talked about by Diane Sawyer ? Harmless internet stunts is what comes to my mind that are emulated numerous times over a short period of time. You may now call me Webster. I am easy to please though. It only become annoying when those participating in such memes becomes famous for doing nothing.

Horsemaning, the latest fake internet crazes hows just how meaningless the idea has become. Three days ago Buzzfeed, the tireless meme-aggregator, decided to take a stab at creating a meme of its own. The site posted a vintage picture of two girls posing so it looked like one was the dismembered head of the other. They dubbed this “horsemaning,” after the headless horseman, posted some examples and solicited reader photos. A bunch of readers responded. (You’ll find a few above.)

Today, preternaturally cheery Today show hosts Hoda and Kathy Lee did a bit on horsemaning. They giggled about how silly this “huge internet craze” was, and posed for their own horsemaning picture, after BuzzFeed urged them to over Twitter. Except, as of their segment, the horsemaning “craze” was composed of a handful of Buzz Feed posts, a Facebook page with a few hundred likes, and a few desultory blog posts from other sites. MORE

Handpicked News: JOHN WAYNE & BACHMANN, New DADT Discharges, Facebook Hates the Gays…

by Accidental Bear

 THEY DID IT AGAIN:Facebook Sorry for Censoring Kiss In the latest of a recurring problem for the company, Facebook is apologizing for censoring a photo illustration of two men kissing that commemorated passage of the marriage equality bill in New York and that was posted by The Advocate on Friday.

BACHMANN CITES WRONG JOHN WAYNE, PRAISES NOTORIOUS SERIAL KILLER Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has a thing for John Wayne. In an interview yesterday with Newsmax, she said she wants to live in “John Wayne’s America.” And in the Iowa town of Waterloo today, where she announced her presidential candidacy, Bachmann told Fox News, “John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That’s the kind of spirit that I have, too.” But unfortunately for historically challenged Bachmann, as the Washington Times points out, the John Wayne born in Waterloo is John Wayne Gacy, the notorious serial killer who murdered 33 teenage boys and young men, not the iconic Western actor.

Christians Now Hate Old Navy: But What Will they Wear?

by Accidental Bear

Gary Cass of DefendChristians.org says Old Navy is promoting a lifestyle that is in “complete rebellion against God.”

“Rather just focusing on giving good products to their customers, they want to use their products now to advocate for a very controversial topic, much less a very immoral and very deadly topic,” notes Cass.

The T-shirt designs include a white shirt with “Love Proudly” written in the colors of the rainbow, and a black shirt with rainbow-colored stripes. Cass tells OneNewsNow that an economic dent in the company’s profits may be the only way to change things.

“Unfortunately we have to do the hard work of communicating our outrage, our frustration — and then following that up with some kind of practical expression such as taking your business elsewhere,” he suggests.

According to reports, the T-shirts will be available at 27 Old Navy stores until the end of June or until supplies run out. Facebook followers of Old Navy’s “Love Proudly” campaign are criticizing the retailer for not distributing the shirts through all of its outlets and only making a few dozen available at the select locations.

VIDEO: Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph Describe the Journey of a Fart

by Accidental Bear

I finally cleaned myself up from my death that occurred from laughing so much at the film Bridesmaids, and now, my laughter has gone amuck again.

This clip from the French Bridesmaids junket was uploaded to YouTube over a week ago, but only now is its splendor started to light up newsfeeds and Facebook scrolls across our great nation. Here’s all you need to know: Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph are quizzed about scatological humor, and they both (along with the giddy interviewer) devolve into hysterics. It may be the first and last time you ever see movie stars really laugh. via www.movieline.com

The Man Behind Str8cam.com Talks with Accidental Bear & Things get Steamy

by Accidental Bear

In the adult entertainment industry the term “straight” on the gay side of the road is a hot commodity. There is much skepticism because these so-called straight actors are filmed getting gang-banged on site after site showing up on Sean Cody and other such sites with “first time”, “straight seduced”, “broke str8 guy” tags. I understand this is an illusion, but as with The Wizard of Oz, there is always a man behind the curtain. Do I have a story for you. Jeff, the hunk from str8cam.com (drum roll please) is actually STRAIGHT. He’s more like the guy next door that you’d bring home to meet mom and he fulfills all your straight guy voyeur fantasies. Towards the end of our talk Jeff gives me an idea of one of his sexual fantasies. He delivers a story of what it might look like on the inside of a horny straight guys brain. They say a picture is worth a thousands words, then Jeff’s words are worth a million dollars! Hot Hot Hot

All Eyes on A Bear Knows Photos Brendan McWeeney

by Accidental Bear
I spotted Brendan McWeeney bounding over chairs and crawling to the floor to capture the best moments of Bob Mould’s performance at Swedish Music Hall on Market Street, SF. Later to find to out that I have admired his photographs before as they appeared on friends of a friend of a friend of a friends Facebook page, you get it. Who needs the CIA anymore I tracked him down via the internet and pleased to find a sweet collection of his work ranging from architecture, landscapes, sports, travel and live music.  I personally feel like he rocks, no  pun intended, at grabbing just the right moments at live music shows and the results are evident.

I asked him what his dream gig would be. Brendan say’s  “As far as a dream gig goes. I’m not 100% sure what that would be. This year it’s to shoot a large festival, I don’t know what my goal will be next year. Ultimately the goal is to be published in a national news outlet, either some big rock or hip hop or general music magazine or blog. I know that’s a ways off though.” I say dream big, big boy (FYI, Brendan is a big hunk of burning Ginger love = side note). I have been around the block enough to notice when a photographer has an eye for “the”  shot, and Brendan is a natural. Looking forward to seeing more of his work in the future. Become a fan of his on Facebook and keep up on his current projects and be sure to √ i like. From Brendan to you, Bear hugs!

Take a peek at the goods.

BIO:

My passion for photography began in high school. It is there I learned how to shoot and develop b&w film. It is also where I learned to truly “make” a photograph. To this day, I get a rush from freezing a moment in time and sharing my view of the world with others.

My 13 year career in Visual Design has honed my eye for composition, as well as capturing the personality of a subject and conveying the emotion of a scene.

As a photographer I am as comfortable in the field as I am in my studio. I have the experience and approachable professionalism that enable me to capture just the right images for myself and my clients

Great Loss; 15 yr old, Jumped to his Death

by Accidental Bear

Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me, may need to be updated. I cry in my coffee this morning.

Dominic Crouch died last May

Schoolboy, 15, jumped to his death after rumors he was gay

via www.pinknews.co.uk

A Gloucestershire teenager jumped to his death after rumours circulated that he was gay, an inquest has heard.

Dominic Crouch, 15, a pupil at St Edwards School in Cheltenham, threw himself from a six-storey block of flats last May after returning from a school trip.

An inquest in Cheltenham heard that pupils played spin the bottle on the four-day art trip and there were rumours that Dominic had kissed a boy.

His parents said he appeared happy when he returned from the trip but just days later, he left school at lunchtime to go to the block of flats where he got to the roof via a trapdoor.

Notes were found in his pockets apologising to his parents.

Dominic’s family are raising money in his name for the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund which supports children in South Africa.
