Movie Actor Baldwin Launches Anti-Porn Action, Promises Newspaper Ads
A new sex-oriented business is opening not far from his home outside New York City, and actor Stephen Baldwin is hoping to stop it, possibly with the help of newspaper ads.

One of the family of Baldwin brother (Alex, Billy, Daniel) actors, Stephen Baldwin has become known as a Christian activist, while continuing to gain movie roles.

On Friday, Baldwin, 39, stood outside the "adult entertainment" shop and photographed workers and their vehicles as they got the store ready to open, according to an account in the Journal-News of White Plains, N.Y.

Baldwin told the paper he planned to stand outside the store every day and photograph the license plates of the store's patrons to aid in tracking down their identities. He vowed to take out a full-page newspaper advertisement once a month to publish those names.

"I won't stop until it shuts down," he said. He has said the store will attract crime, lower property values and hurt the quality of life in the largely middle-class town, which is known as something of an artist's enclave.

"I don't want it this close to my house," Baldwin, who lives about a mile away, told the paper. His home just outside Nyack has a sign bearing scripture out front. "I'm personally not OK with pornography," he added. "I definitely think that it adds to the moral decay or our culture."

Local police "responded to the property last night after Baldwin called them about 9:30 p.m.," the newspaper related. "He said the workers were giving him a hard time for taking photographs. Police told Baldwin he was free to protest and take photographs as long as he was not on the store's property."

Fucking dink.


Yeah, so I need a drag name. Well, we ALL need a drag name. Post a reply with an appropriate drag name for moi, and I will put up a poll later with the choices. I did this a while back, but I cannot recall anyone ever actually giving me a drag name.

I gave D his drag name, he's Zsa Zsa LaWhore. His roommate is Magnolia Thunderpussy. Here are a few that I like:
  • Amanda Playwith
  • Iona Sextoy
  • Sofonda Cox
  • Ivana B. Queen
  • Summer Clearance

Try the Drag Queen Name Generator, see what you come up with and share in the comments. Poll will be posted after I get a minimum of 20 different choices. Do me, bitches.

This one came to me out of nowhere, but that's usually how some of the best ideas come to you. It was actually inspired by my friend osilly, who is just this wonderful little spirit that brings good energy, love, and light. I'm grateful to know you, sweets.

Many years ago (like 20+) I had a pen pal in the UK named Leslie. We used to make mixed tapes for one another. She would send me these albums by The Smiths, The Housemartins, Bauhaus, Tones On Tail, and lots of obscure 4AD stuff in exchange for my collection of DRI, GBH, The Damned, Bad Brains, Circle Jerks, Impotent Sea Snakes, and that kind of stuff. Mostly we'd send one another letters written hastily in class or on busses to and from school. There was something really great about getting a mixed tape and a handwritten letter from a friend that made me feel very important and sacred to someone else, even if she was half a world away.

So here's my idea. I'm going to make an MP3 cd mix of the songs that would appear on the sountrack to the movie about my life, if ever one were to be made. I'm going to make lots of copies of it. To get one of these cds from me along with a handwritten letter, here's what you have to do:
  1. Comment with something you'd like me to write to you about.
  2. Leave your mailing address in the comment - all comments will be screened and viewed by me only, so it's safe.
  3. Consider taking this project on yourself, posting similarly in your own blog.
  4. Be patient with me as I have a ton of readers to this blog and it wil ltake me a while to send stuff out.

The soundtrack will be not named nor will a song list be posted, for that you'll have to actually get it from me.

So whose head will roll next?

Ney steps down from chairmanship during probe
Rep. Bob Ney gave up his chairmanship of the House Administration Committee on Sunday amid an influence-peddling probe that has roiled the Republican Party, but he predicted the investigation would clear his name. Ney, R-Ohio, was under heavy pressure from House Speaker Dennis Hastert to give up his chairmanship after Ney was implicated in the scandal surrounding lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who pleaded guilty to corruption charges earlier this month.
