” A London museum that opened to the public Wednesday contains ancient sex toys and human waste purported to be from celebrities including Amy Winehouse.
The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & Natural History, which opened its doors Wednesday in the Hackney neighborhood, contains such varied items as Picasso prints, taxidermy animals, ancient Chinese sex toys, 19th century babies preserved in formaldehyde and McDonald’s Happy Meal toys.
The museum is being operated by The Last Tuesday Society, an 18,000-member group Wynd describes as a “social organism.”
Wynd, who told the Guardian he wants to get “the whole world” into his museum, said the collection also includes the urine of actor Russell Crowe, which he says was a “gift,” and excrement he attributes to pop star Kylie Minogue and late singer Amy Winehouse.”
” I charge five pounds ($7.90) for a sniff,” Wynd said of Winehouse’s purported waste. “
” Who rakes in a whopping $75 million? Who are the highest-paid TV stars? And how much can you make working in an agency mailroom? In its Money Issue, THR reveals how much people are earning now, from stars including Robert Downey Jr., Sandra Bullock, Katherine Heigl and the ‘Duck Dynasty’ clan to top agents including Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell
How bad is the decline in actor salaries over the past decade? Despite the huge sums still being raked in by such superstars as Robert Downey Jr. (his $75 million comes from his 7 percent, first-dollar slice of Iron Man 3, as well as his $12 million HTC endorsement deal) and Sandra Bullock (a 15 percent, first-dollar deal on Gravity and about $10 million more for her summer hit The Heat), most actors are feeling a definite squeeze, especially those in the middle.
” If you’re [a big star], you’re getting well paid,” says one top agent, “but the middle level has been cut out.” Sometimes with a hacksaw. Leonardo DiCaprio made $25 million (including bonuses) for The Wolf of Wall Street, while co-star Jonah Hill got paid $60,000. Granted, that’s an extreme example — Hill offered to do the part for scale (and got an Oscar nomination for his trouble). “
The Hollywood Reporter provides us with an in-depth look at who makes what in the entertainment industry from the top “stars” to the extras on the set , and everyone in between . Very much worth your time if you are sick of hearing from the celebrity asshats how we need to combat wage inequality …
Of course the wages provided for the different types of employment in Hollyweird are a reflection of the free market in action but one wonders why , if the “invisible hand” is good enough for them , why isn’t it good enough for the rest of us .

” Hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets of New York City today to call for more action to combat global warming, in what organizers are calling the largest climate change march in history. Kmele Foster, co-host of Fox Business’ The Independents, was on the scene for Reason TV talking to the participants.”
And be sure to watch this PJTV video of Michelle Fields interviewing RFK Jr where-in it becomes apparent that all the evils of the world are laid at the feet of the Koch brothers … LOL …
The Kennedy’s are morons and we should be eternally grateful that their political dynasty has come to an end . Let’s make sure that we do not allow another to begin with the either Clintons or the Bushes … No Hillary , No Jeb
” The First Secretary of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia described the reforms which resulted in the Prague Spring as “socialism with a human face.” The New York Times calls Madam Secretary, CBS’s extremely expensive prime time contribution to the Hillary campaign, “Hillary with a human face.”
A network series can cost between $3 and $4 million an episode. Assuming that Madam Secretary runs even one season, instead of being canceled ignominiously like Commander in Chief, the 2005 attempt at giving Hillary a human face, it will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million.
That’s double the $46 million that Hillary’s campaign spent on TV ads against Obama and it gives the Hillary 2016 campaign over 20 hours of prime time network unpaid ad space. If the series lasts long enough to run through the whole campaign that will double to $200 million. But the Hillary 2016 campaign is expected to cost around $2 billion. CBS’s $100 million donation is only a drop in a big bucket.
Hillary won’t be able to get anyone to play Hillary Clinton once she actually runs for office. Lori McCreary, the executive producer of Madam Secretary, said that she was inspired to create the $100 million Hillary infomercial by watching the Benghazi hearings. Her obvious unspoken thought was that the scene of Hillary doing her best Khrushchev imitation while self-righteously covering up the brutal murder of four Americans would have gone much better if someone else had been playing Hillary.”
” Celebrities, activists and political leaders are expected to join more than 100,000 people in New York Sunday for what could be the largest climate change protest in history, organizers said.
Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio, former US vice president turned advocate Al Gore, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio are due to take part in the “People’s Climate March.”
The event has been endorsed by more than 1,400 organizations, including environment, faith and justice groups, as well as labor unions. Students have mobilized marchers at more than 300 college campuses.
The protest will wind its way through Midtown Manhattan on a two-mile (3.2-kilometer) route starting at 11:30 am (1530 GMT). “
Just asking: How much CO will these hypocritical a**holes put into the atmosphere from their private jets and mammoth limousines in order to “save the planet” ?

” James O’Keefe Premieres “Expose: Hollywood’s War on US Energy” at Cannes Hollywood celebrities caught on hidden camera accepting money from “Middle Eastern oil interests”
CANNES — In a blockbuster new video, Project Veritas has exposed the truth about the dark funding behind Hollywood’s anti-fracking messaging machine.
New York Times Bestselling Author and Project Veritas founder and president James O’Keefe debuted the latest investigation at a “premiere” in Cannes, France on Wednesday.
In the investigation, an undercover journalist from Project Veritas posed as a member of a Middle Eastern oil dynasty and offered $9 million in funding to American filmmakers to fund an anti-fracking movie.
In video from a meeting with Ed Begley Jr., Mariel Hemingway and Josh Tickell, a Project Veritas investigator disguised as “Muhammed” offered $9 million for an anti-fracking film. “Muhammad” clearly states: “If Washington DC continues fracking, America will be energy efficient, and then they won’t need my oil anymore.”
In the same conversation, Begley and Hemingway accept the funding and agree to hide the source of funds for the anti-fracking movie. Hemingway agreeing that those who will know the source of the funding are “only at this table.”
Ed Begley Jr. is an outspoken environmental activist and current Governor on the board of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science (the organization that brings us the OSCARS every year.)
Mariel Hemingway is a Golden Globe- and Oscar-nominated actress.
Josh Tickell is a Sundance Film Festival Winner and the director of environmental message movies “Fuel”, “The Big Fix” and “PUMP”.
Team Begley even submitted a video of Oscar-nominated actor Mark Ruffalo offering his unwavering support for the fictitious anti-fracking film project.
The meeting came about after a series of discussions with Josh and Rebecca Tickell. A Project Veritas journalist posed as an ad executive seeking to broker a deal for his client (“Muhammed”) to fund an American-made anti-fracking film.
In a phone call to Tickell, the ad executive states: “My client’s interest is to end American energy independence; your interest is to end fracking. And you guys understand that?”
Tickell’s response: “Correct. Yes, super clear.”
Tickell makes it clear on the tape that revealing the source of funding for an activist film can undermine its credibility. Tickell notes that the movie “Promised Land” undermined its own message because it was labeled as being funded by Image Nation Abu Dhabi. His advice: “So rather than putting that [the source of funding] up front, don’t mention that.”
In a follow-up call with Josh and Rebecca Tickell, Rebecca Tickell assures our investigator: “We would never tell about where the funding is coming from. That would be really awkward for us.”
Josh Tickell: “We’re confident that we can keep this zip locked, you know tight, air-tight forever. If we don’t protect who is kind of funding this thing, if we have to disclose that or that becomes a necessary part of it, the whole enterprise will not work.”
Project Veritas founder and president James O’Keefe stated Wednesday:
” This latest investigation shows the dark side of Hollywood’s environmental movement. Hollywood is willing to take and conceal money from Middle Eastern oil interests in order to advance their cause of destroying American energy independence.”

” A TV debate between two senior Jordanian journalists has erupted spectacularly into an on-air fight after they came to a disagreement over the Syrian crisis.
The pair were separated by a long oval-shaped table – until, that is, one picked it up and started trying to use it as a weapon.
According to reports from Al Arabiya, the debate on Tuesday saw Shaker al-Jawhary (on the right), head of the Electronic Media Association in Jordan, furiously launch himself at Mohammad Sharif al-Jaiousy, the editor in chief of a prominent news website.
Al-Jawhary can be seen pushing the table towards his fellow speaker before, after he realises it has come apart, using the top surface as a sort of battering ram to push into Al-Jaiousy’s chest.
When that fails, Al-Jawhary runs around the set and aims a kick at his opponent, at which point the host and security staff are able to intervene.”
The Independent has the scoop
” The lawyer suing X-Men director Bryan Singer and other Hollywood power players for sexual assault says he has heard from “dozens and dozens and dozens of victims” alleging sexual assault and abuse by other “big names” in the movie industry.
“ They are ready to come forward,” said the controversial Florida-based attorney Jeff Herman. “It cuts across all of Hollywood: studios, agents, directors, producers, and actors.”
Herman is representing Michael Egan, 31, in the highly publicized suits alleging sexual assault against Singer, Broadway producer Gary Goddard, former Disney executive David Neuman, and producer Garth Ancier.
These new allegations are against an entirely different group of entertainment industry figures, Herman told The Daily Beast. “I know of [a] Hollywood sex ring, completely unrelated to these [Singer and the other three defendants’] cases,” Herman said.
“ We are finishing investigations, and will be filing suits soon. It will involve big names. It involves a different part of Hollywood: agents of kids, that sort of thing. There’s really vile stuff going on in the industry. The scope is big, I’m hearing from a lot of people. It fits the pattern of children being sexually exploited.” “
This should be interesting coming from the celebrity idiots that preach to us peons on a daily basis . We can hardly wait for the floodgates to open and expose the hypocrisy and moral decadence of the Hollyweird crowd . Continue reading at the Daily Beast
” Charlie Delta
The media distorts information to the point of social division. This is a photo of myself and the resilient, often charismatic, and maybe not so tactful Cliven Bundy. He’s a cowboy and a helluva family man, not an orator. One thing he definitely isn’t – a racist. I found his comments to not only be NOT racist, but his own view of his experiences.”
While Kevin Jackson of The BlackSphere has the entire letter from Charlie Delta , other black spokesmen have also stepped up to the plate in defense of Cliven Bundy’s ill-phrased but ultimately correct statement regarding the culture of government dependency that has managed to keep the black community from “fleeing the plantation” for over two generations .
While personalities like Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity have fled in terror from the Bundy remarks others with stronger spines have stepped up to explain Bundy’s poor choice of words and to re-iterate the important point that he was attempting to make , albeit in a decidedly insensitive way . Kyra Ann Davis went so far as to create a video that explains the import of Bundy’s point regardless of his ignorant , foot-in-mouth choice of words .
Remember , Cliven Bundy is a simple rancher not a polished public speaker and Lord knows we’ve heard plenty of ignorant , racist statements from those who do have plenty of public speaking experience … Joe Biden , Al Sharpton , Jesse Jackson and others immediately leap to mind .
Watch Ms Davis’s video below and make up your own mind . Remember that the MSM has a vested interest in protecting the powers that be and in no way reflect the interests of the public at large . They are to all appearances now nothing more than mouthpieces of the State .
This is just another attempt to shout “Squirrel” and deflect attention from the larger point that the Federal government becomes more burdensome and overbearing by the day and the average citizen is becoming wise to that fact despite the MSM’s Herculean attempts to preserve the status quo .
” David Letterman shocked the late night talk show world, last week, when he announced he was going to retire in 2015. But over the last few years Letterman had been losing the ratings war to his less liberal competitor Jay Leno. While Leno tried to be more even-handed in his jokes against Republicans and Democrats, Letterman took a decidedly leftist turn. A recent study of Letterman’s 2012 campaign jokes found he took more shots at Mitt Romney (44) than Barack Obama (9).
In the 2000’s Letterman throttled Republicans like George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, questioning if they had any “humanity.” He also conducted his own personal war on GOP women as he called Michele Bachmann a “whacko” and depicted Sarah Palin and her daughter in “slutty” terms. But when it came to Obama, Letterman was positively awe-struck when the President came on his show, as he gushed “how satisfying it is to watch you work.” [Video compilation after the jump]

” Piers Morgan wrapped his three-year CNN run tonight with (gasp!) a full hour of discussion about the missing plane. But in his four-minute final remarks, he couldn’t resist taking a parting shot at the NRA. “I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theater, and then, just a few months later, 20 first-graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, the absurd gun laws in this country would change,” he said. “But nothing has happened. The gun lobby in America, led by the NRA, has bullied this nation’s politicians into cowardly, supine silence. “
” Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert found himself at the center of a controversy on Thursday stemming from a racially insensitive tweet posted to The Colbert Report Twitter account. The well-known satirist tried to distance himself from the tweet (now deleted) early Friday morning – even though it was almost a direct quote from his Wednesday night show.” MP3 audio here.]
The Colbert Report Twitter account may not be controlled by Colbert. Indeed, the people behind the account called it “a Comedy Central promotional account, with no oversight from Stephen or his show.” But here’s the thing – their offensive tweet was based on a line that came straight out of Colbert’s mouth on his Wednesday night show.”
Newsbusters has more on Colbert’s latest foray into the racist humor swamp .

” In 2012, the people of North Carolina paid Marvel Studios $20 million to shoot Robert Downey Jr.’s latest comic-book sequel, “Iron Man 3,” in their state. It was just one of many movies and television shows taxpayers subsidized in North Carolina that year. Among them were season 8 of“The Bachelorette” and Jennifer Aniston’s “We’re the Millers” — a film that The Fresno Bee said “aims for mediocrity and hits it with a dull thud.”
Subsidies like these for the entertainment industry exist all over the country, in Florida and Michigan and Ohio. Georgia taxpayers in 2012 funded “Tyler Perry’s Aunt Bam’s Place,” “Tyler Perry’s I Don’t Want to Do Wrong” and the latest Vince Vaughn–Luke Wilson buddy flick, “The Internship.”
With so much public money going toward these ventures, it’s reasonable to question whether they bring the public any actual benefit — and there are plenty of reasons to be skeptical. In 2010 in Michigan, the state Senate authored a report on film industry incentives and found that, in one year, the state had spent $100 million to create only $60 million in economic activity. Of the spending stimulated — by the production of such gems as “A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas”— the report found that almost half occurred out of state. Such doubts were compounded by a November report from the office of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, which could not find “sufficient justification for the size of the film credits.” The amount of public money spent on a production company, it said, was the equivalent of paying a factory 40 times what it owed in taxes.
The film industry, now under scrutiny for engaging in these practices, is just one example of a much larger problem. Tax credits for businesses, in theory, are meant to be a means of using public money to stimulate private-sector growth and create jobs. Yet many subsidies don’t pay off in the form of public benefits, and few come with any measures for accountability, preventing the public from ever knowing if it’s getting its money’s worth. Walmart, for instance, has used “more than $1.2 billion in tax breaks, free land, infrastructure assistance, low-cost financing and outright grants from state and local governments around the country,” according to Good Jobs First’s Wal-Mart Subsidy Watch website. Sports franchises frequently approach cities and suburban regions with proposals for new stadiums funded by public dollars, touting them as job creators.”
