William Shakespeare gets a digital make-over for the 'Instagram Generation'
Shakespeare has been given a digital makeover, in an effort to inspire the Instagram generation to connect with arguably the world's greatest playwright.
New research from the digital technology company, Adobe, has revealed 77% of 11-18 years olds struggle to understand William Shakespeare's plays because of the "challenging" language used.
42% do not understand how studying his work will help them get a job in the future - while 29% said modern day interpretations of his plays would help them understand them.
Cosby, Weinstein, Trump and O'Reilly orgy painting shocks VIP guests including Julianne Moore and Brooke Shields
China said she’s considering offering her painting to amfAR for the charity’s May 17 gala in Cannes, France, to combat AIDS. AmfAR has looked to distance itself from former supporters Weinstein and shoe designer Kenneth Cole because of questionable fund-raising activities involving the pair, which led to Cole’s resignation as a board member in February.

Watch this male artist’s transformation into the women of Game Of Thrones
Paolo Ballesteros is Filipino makeup artist, TV host and “impersonator.” What he truly is though, is amazing. Ballestros’ Instagram is full of photos of the artist transforming himself into strong female characters. Check out his take on the women from Game Of Thrones below with a bonus photo of Ballesteros as Wonder Woman too. (Because, c’mon, if anyone could take on Daenerys and win, it’s gonna be Diana.)
This clock is actually a human face
A Tokyo-based artistic design studio called we+ has developed a clock that is actually a human face. It follows time with its eyes and mouth and is meant to represent the heavy burden that time has on human life.
Could This Ancient Porn Change The Way We Think About Christianity And Homosexuality?
There are six passages in the Bible that refer to same-sex behavior in some way. These verses are often referred by progressive Christians as “clobber passages” because they are repeatedly used to reject, demean, and attack queer Christians.
Three of these passages are located in the New Testament, in the books of Romans, 1 Corinthians, and 1 Timothy. Another passage that conservative Christians sometimes refer to is Matthew 19, where Jesus speaks about divorce. It’s these verses that Chalke turns to in his defense of queer Christianity.
The minister claims it was normal and even expected for Roman men to have sexual playthings apart from their wives. This meant having sex with concubines and young boys. Some Roman women also used people of lower status for their own sexual pleasure, Chalke said. But one thing Romans couldn’t do was abuse another Roman citizen.
“Roman boys were protected in a way that slave boys weren’t. For a Roman man, sex was a legitimate part of life, but you had to have sex with an inferior and you had to penetrate them, you weren’t allowed to be penetrated,” Chalke said in his talk.
The hauntingly beautiful work of a young queer portrait photographer
“I look at life the same way I look at photographs, the entire image can change just by shifting your focus a little.”
Jason Felix is a young, queer portrait photographer with a unique ability to capture his subjects in a hauntingly beautiful way.
“I remember the first camera I ever received that wasn’t disposable,” reads the About section on Jason’s website, “It changed my view on photography forever. Although my first photographs were at family parties and of my dog, I believe those photographs were important. Every time I hit the shutter, I try to hit it with a purpose, and that purpose changes with every image.”
Sharon Osbourne Burns Kendall And Kylie Jenner Over Controversial Shirts
The controversy over Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s questionable new line of T-shirts is now going off the rails on a crazy train.
The Jenner sisters caused a stir recently by reportedly releasing $125 T-shirts with their faces and logos over notable musicians and groups such as 2Pac, Notorious B.I.G. and Ozzy Osbourne.
The pair have since issued an apology and pulled the shirts from stores, but not before talk show host and wife of Ozzy, Sharon Osbourne, had something to say about it.
“Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons,” she wrote on Twitter. “Stick to what you know…lip gloss.”
Robots Aren’t Human. You Only Make Them So
IF A ROBOT were to look at you with a twinkle in its eye, you wouldn’t be blamed for running away in terror. But that plunge into the uncanny valley doesn’t bother Max Aguilera-Hellweg, who’s been photographing anthropomorphic bots since 2010. “I’ve never found myself afraid of any of them,” he says. In fact, he’d love for his subjects to appear more lifelike. A student of anatomy—Aguilera-Hellweg graduated from med school at 48—he looks for “the right angle to find that bit of humanness.” But the point of his new book, Humanoid, isn’t to terrify you. It’s to remind you that robots aren’t human—we only make them so.

Dems to rehang painting depicting cops as pigs after GOP rep took it down
Democratic lawmakers plan to rehang a controversial painting on Capitol Hill that angered law enforcement groups with its depiction of police officers as pigs, after Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter personally took down the picture last week.
A Monday press release from the Congressional Black Caucus and Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., whose office for months had sponsored the display of the student artwork, announced that Clay and CBC members will “rehang” the piece Tuesday morning in the Cannon Tunnel.
“The rehanging of this painting for public view represents more than just protecting the rights of a student artist, it is a proud statement in defense of the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which guarantees freedom of expression to every American,” the statement said, noting it had been “removed without permission or proper authority” by Hunter.
Why Are So Many Gay Bars Closing?
Guys my age stopped going out to bars all the time,” said Jack LaFary, a former bartender at Indianapolis’s 501 Eagle, which closed this year.
He’s interviewed this week in a piece by the Chicago Tribune, which examines the fact that gay bars are slowly but steadily going extinct.
The story echoes a similar sentiment in The Economist’s recent article that explores the same subject, reporting that over 16 gay bars closed in London between 2014 and 2015. They suggest this “points to a larger, and overwhelmingly positive, trend.”
One problem is rent. Gay bars tend to pop up in more downtrodden parts of a city, but as those cities become richer, watering holes and dives are eventually squeezed out altogether.
Of course, hookup apps have also hindered business, providing a cheaper (and far less slurry) way to meet potential partners.
“It all changed with smartphones,” LaFary says. “When I first came out, you went to a gay bar to meet gay people. But the smartphone changed that, and it was an all-of-a-sudden thing. Business just dropped, and it wasn’t a gradual thing. It was, like, boom.”

Meet The Guy Bringing Gay Sexuality To Video Games
There is a buff, hairy-chested man with two leather bands around his bicep standing on the computer screen in front of me. Everything is illuminated in neon pink light and there’s throbbing dance music pulsing in the background. He extends his hand to my avatar’s hand, and I use my mousepad to shake it. Icons—a flogger, a safe word—representing a kinky negotiation process light up. Next thing I know, he’s bent over on all fours wearing nothing but a jockstrap and I’m spanking him as he moans in pleasure. In the background is a poster reading, “All power exchange has to be negotiated.”
This is “Hurt Me Plenty,” a game about BDSM, gay male sexuality, and consent. It was re-released this month as part of what the designer, Robert Yang, is calling a “revamped threesome” of past games. There’s “Succulent,” a game in which you control a shirtless man sucking, deeply, on a dripping popsicle. And “Stick Shift,” in which you control a male character as he drives along at night, sensually stroking the stick shift of his very excitable car. Yang describes as a “short driving game about pleasuring a gay car and bringing it to climax.”
The woman entertaining this massive concert crowd isn’t real
In 2016, even holograms get encores.
On Saturday afternoon at the Hammerstein Ballroom, Hatsune Miku, a Japanese animated character with a massive global following, performed at least four songs after her main set was finished. I didn’t stick around for a fifth. But over 1,000 people did.
It’s worth noting that Celine Dion, who is a real person, usually gets two encores during her popular Vegas show. Two hundred million albums sold, two encores. Bon quantité, Celine.
Miku is a hologram touring the US, but she’s nothing like the ballyhooed Whitney Houston and Biggie Smalls projections that are threatening the well-being of the planet.
Tom House. Historic house-museum dedicated to the revolutionary gay graphic artist Tom of Finland.
To call Tom of Finland the 20th Century's "most influential creator of gay pornographic images," as cultural historian Joseph W. Slade once so prominently remarked, is to sell short the artist's accomplishments in the fields of graphic design and cultural revolution. For this reason, a thoroughly engrossing, wonderfully educational museum dedicated to showcasing his work and the subsequent, lasting impact on society can be found in the artist's very own 1906 Craftsman-style house perched atop a hill overlooking Echo Park.
