With the accu­sa­tion avalanche of sex­ual crimes/​misconduct being slung about in Hol­ly­wood and in the Hol­ly­wood for Ugly Peo­ple (Wash­ing­ton DC), we have this bit of news.

For­mer Rep. Anthony Weiner, who reported to prison this week to begin a 21-​month sen­tence for sex­ting with a 15-​year-​old girl, is hop­ing to stay in con­tact with the out­side world.

Weiner’s away mes­sage on his per­sonal email addresses pro­vide spe­cific instruc­tions on how to stay in con­tact with the dis­graced Con­gress­man, the New York Post reported Thursday.

Thanks for reach­ing out,” the mes­sage says. “Start­ing Novem­ber 6th, I’ll be away for a while but I would love to stay in touch. As quaint as it may sound, the best way to reach me is by send­ing a let­ter. When you write, ill get you the infor­ma­tion about how email might work.

So please include your full mail­ing address here and of course include it when you write,” Weiner says in the message.

You and I both know that Weiner will have no short­age of correspondents.

And then, this morn­ing, we wake up to the news that some dude accuses Star Trek actor George Takei of pos­si­bly slip­ping him a roofie and tak­ing advan­tage in 1981.

In other words, it’s Sat­ur­day and I have noth­ing really to talk about and choose to gawk at these people.

Both Hol­ly­woods seem to be mag­nets for preda­tors of many vari­eties because what they are sell­ing is fan­tasy and what they are buy­ing is power. That these fantasy-​power exchanges spill over into the sex­ual area shouldn’t be a sur­prise because most of the denizens of the two king­doms have no moral/​spiritual reign on their appetites – though many of the Ugly Hol­ly­wood res­i­dents pre­tend to reli­gious virtue to get elected and the Pretty Hol­ly­wood pre­tends to sec­u­lar virtue because they’re pretty, Har­vey Wein­stein notwith­stand­ing. A stage, all the world is.

Watch­ing the stuff is almost as enter­tain­ing as going to the zoo. Almost.

Hollywood Sign in 1923

by baldilocks

With the accusation avalanche of sexual crimes/misconduct being slung about in Hollywood and in the Hollywood for Ugly People (Washington DC), we have this bit of news.

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner, who reported to prison this week to begin a 21-month sentence for sexting with a 15-year-old girl, is hoping to stay in contact with the outside world.

Weiner’s away message on his personal email addresses provide specific instructions on how to stay in contact with the disgraced Congressman, the New York Post reported Thursday.

“Thanks for reaching out,” the message says. “Starting November 6th, I’ll be away for a while but I would love to stay in touch. As quaint as it may sound, the best way to reach me is by sending a letter. When you write, ill get you the information about how email might work.

“So please include your full mailing address here and of course include it when you write,” Weiner says in the message.

You and I both know that Weiner will have no shortage of correspondents.

And then, this morning, we wake up to the news that some dude accuses Star Trek actor George Takei of possibly slipping him a roofie and taking advantage in 1981.

In other words, it’s Saturday and I have nothing really to talk about and choose to gawk at these people.

Both Hollywoods seem to be magnets for predators of many varieties because what they are selling is fantasy and what they are buying is power. That these fantasy-power exchanges spill over into the sexual area shouldn’t be a surprise because most of the denizens of the two kingdoms have no moral/spiritual reign on their appetites – though many of the Ugly Hollywood residents pretend to religious virtue to get elected and the Pretty Hollywood pretends to secular virtue because they’re pretty, Harvey Weinstein notwithstanding. A stage, all the world is.

Watching the stuff is almost as entertaining as going to the zoo. Almost.
