Open Post: Hosted By Kevin Spacey Trying To Show John Travolta Up 

openpostkevinspacey2017

John Travolta’s wig tamers better Super Glue, Gorilla Glue, and cement glue his hair to his head, because Kevin Spacey is trying to snatch that shit and take the crown. Nobody can beat John Travolta’s flawless man wig game, but Kevin is giving him a run for his lace front.

At today’s London premiere of Baby Driver (and, I’m still fucking pissed it’s not a Latarian Milton biopic), Kevin Spacey worked that rug on his head and he didn’t even care that the hawks flying above were seconds away from swooping in after mistaking it for a squirrel in distress. Kevin also worked it for the cameras even though his makeup person did him wrong by not blending his face paint all the way. Kevin didn’t only wear the best hair at the Baby Driver premiere, he also wore the best ensemble.

Kevin’s co-stars (Jon Hamm, Ansel Elgort, Jamie Foxx, Lily James and Eiza Gonzalez) all wore stuffy outfits from the House of Boring, while Kevin went full mid-life crisis daddy chic. It looks like his twink friends (or the new Ken dolls) took him to Macy’s and gave him a totally hip and fresh makeover. That IS the look. And I bet that at the after-party for Baby Driver, Kevin went up to Ansel and Lily at the bar and said, “Issa ’bout to be savage ay eff tonight, sis!

As Predicted, John Oliver Got Sued Over a ‘Last Week Tonight’ Segment

Those of you who saw Sunday night’s Last Week Tonight segment on the shrinking coal industry will recall that John Oliver received a cease and desist order from Bob Murray, the CEO of a mining outfit, Murray Energy Corporation. Bob Murray had asked Last Week Tonight not to run the parts of the segment about Murray, which of course prompted Oliver to make Bob Murray the centerpiece of the segment, even knowing that Oliver would be sued.

«Bob Murray, I didn’t really plan for so much of this piece to be about you, but you kinda forced my hand on that one,» Oliver said. «And I know you’re probably going to sue me over this. But, you know what? I stand by everything I said.»

As promised, Oliver was hit with a lawsuit for defamation yesterday.

In the segment, Oliver called Murray the geriatric Dr. Evil and claimed that he was on the same side as black lung. He also referred to what is apparently a fake story about Murray being convinced to enter the coal industry by a talking squirrel, which Bob Murray’s company denies. Oliver noted the denial, and then had his own talking squirrel come out and speak to Murray.

The lawsuit claims that HBO, Time Warner, and John Oliver engaged in a «meticulously planned attempt to assassinate the character and reputation» of Bob Murray, and that’s certainly what the segment did, although it did so using facts, something with which Bob Murray — who once falsely claimed a mining disaster was caused by an earthquake — seems unfamiliar.

«Nothing has ever stressed him more than this vicious and untruthful attack,» the complaint says, according to The Washington Post. Murray also claims that the segment contains «biases against the coal industry» and «disdain for the coal-related policies of the Trump Administration.»

That’s actually true, but then again, the Trump Administration’s policies are disdainful. For instance, did you know — as the segment points out — that there are only 78,000 coal mining jobs in America? And that there are 114,000 JCPenneys employees, and JCPennys is facing bankruptcy. Why isn’t Trump doing anything about the latter, especially considering that the coal industry is largely automated now and that even the Kentucky Coal Mining Museum is powered by solar.

I missed the segment the first time around, but there’s nothing like a lawsuit to bring attention back to it, and it is phenomenal. Bob Murray has a legal leg to stand on.

Crown Your Father For Father’s Day…That’s John BC In His Element With His Favorite Liquor

#ad

Did you totally blank on Father’s Day and forget to send something to your dad for like the 5th year in a row? You still have time to enter your dad in the Father’s Day Crown Royal velvet painting contest. See above for the details on how you can win a velvet painting that your dad will cherish more than you.

Go to CrownYourFather.com on a mobile device to enter your dad for the velvet painting.

Below we have John BC. I took home a bottle of Crown Royal Wine Barrel Finished this weekend as his Father’s Day gift and you would’ve thought I got him a new John Deere backhoe. John BC went nuts over one of the coolest bottles you’ll ever see. And the giant purple bag that’s like a collector’s item in his world. He loves this whiskey.

Thanks to Crown for this opportunity for my dad. We’re so happy to be partnering with Crown Royal. It’s a highlight of dad’s summer.

It’s the fanciest bottle of liquor John BC has ever had in his house…so fancy:

John BC Got The News Today That His Father’s Day Gift Is A Trip To Lambeau Thanks To #CrownYourFather

#ad

So Crown Royal approached me like 10 days ago or so and said they were looking for bloggers to ‘Crown’ their fathers for Father’s Day this year. “Would you be interested,” they asked.

There’s still time to enter your dad for the velvet Crown painting via CrownYourFather.com on your mobile device.

Well, considering the fact that my dad keeps his Crown empties, has carried coins in his Crown bags to poker parties for like 25 years and actually drinks Crown when he’s at the lake, I said yes. Part of the crowning was to buy a gift for dad. I went back and forth on this part. Do I send dad with me next week for the College World Series title game or do I save the funds and take dad to Lambeau Field in the fall for another one of his bucket list items.

In the end I went Lambeau because it’s harder to pull off that one and it’s one of those places he’s always talked about visiting.


Here’s the trip plan:

We make the drive from Ohio to Ludington, Michigan to catch the SS Badger Ferry. We put the truck on the ferry across Lake Michigan and into Manitowic, Wisconsin, which is just 41 miles to Lambeau Field. The ferry stops running on October 15 so our choices are an early September game against the Seahawks, a 4:25 kickoff against the Bengals (not ideal since I don’t want to watch my Bengals get lit up) or a Thursday night game against the Bears.

That might just be the play here. Rivalry game. Night game. Get up there on a Wednesday night, catch the game Thursday, maybe a stadium tour Friday and then possibly Northwestern-Wisconsin on the way home on Saturday.

That’s a bucket list trip right there.

Thanks to Crown for this opportunity. I’m happy once again to be partnering with Crown Royal and I know dad is jacked up over this whole thing.

Behind the Exhibit: I ♥ John Giorno

After two decades, most couples would have settled for a Hallmark card. Instead, Ugo Rondinone and John Giorno are celebrating their 20 years as a power couple of contemporary art with a citywide exhibit of Giorno’s work called “Ugo Rondinone: I ♥ John Giorno”. 

The show, organized by Rondinone, surveys Giorno’s varied experimentalism, which began with beat poetry in the early fifties, and carried over to subsequent downtown scenes including punk and pop art. When the pair met in 1997, Giorno was an icon of New York City subculture, having been immortalized in Andy Warhol’s epic film Sleep. Behind the scenes, Giorno had been busy building an extensive oeuvre. 

“I was around here in the very early 50s among the beat poets and the pop artists who knew you didn’t throw these things away. So I just saved it,” Giorno tells us. “When [Ugo and I] first got together, he saw that I had this huge archive, and that’s when the idea [for the show] began to percolate.”   

Originally mounted at Palais de Tokyo in 2015, the exhibit in New York will take up 13 different gallery spaces across New York, including the New Museum and Swiss Institute. The show’s epic proportions are fitting given both Giorno and Rondinone’s love of the large-scale. While Rondinone may be known for making monumental statements, this sweeping love letter to Giorno gives new meaning to the term “public display of affection.” 

The post Behind the Exhibit: I ♥ John Giorno appeared first on DuJour.

John Cena Was Born To Play A Lovable Bull In A China Shop

Not long ago, John Cena was a big name is wrestling, but not much known to the wider world. Then came his scene-stealing and body-baring appearance in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck, and just like that he was everywhere, popping in for cameos in comedies like Daddy’s Home and Sisters, shining on morning television as a recurring guest host of Today, and getting political with a diversity-embracing PSA. But this Christmas, he’ll take on one of the most fitting and possibly beloved parts yet as the peace-loving bull at the center of Blue Sky’s Ferdinand.

Based on the children’s book written by Munro Leaf and illustrated by Robert Lawson, Ferdinand follows the titular bull as he’s pulled out of his idyllic village life and forced onto a farm with an enthusiastic goat (Kate McKinnon), a trio of chipper hedgehogs (Gina Rodriguez and Daveed Diggs), and some seriously stuck-up steeds. But when Ferdinand is groomed to fight a matador, he must rally to show the world he’s a most unusual bull.

Rio 1 & 2 helmer Carlos Saldanha directs, pulling together a cast that also boasts Miguel Ángel Silvestre, Bobby Cannavale, Anthony Anderson, Raúl Esparza, Jerrod Carmichael, Boris Kodjoe and David Tennant. Check out the charming trailer below:

Not gonna’ lie «Have a nice day smelling terrible» may make it into my shade-throwing rotation.

Ferdinand opens in theaters on December 15th.

Katy Perry Says John Mayer Was Her Best Lover, and Josh Groban Is ‘The One That Got Away’

During a segment of her Big Brother-like “Witness World Wide” livestream Sunday, Katy Perry was joined by cab driver James Corden for a game of “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts,” which is sort of like WWHL’s “Plead the Fifth,” only you have to eat something disgusting like a pickled pig’s foot or cow tongue (I don’t…

John McCain’s Confusing Questions To James Comey Can Be Blamed On The Arizona Diamondbacks

We rarely do politics on here and when we do, it always has some angle bringing it back into the sports world. This is no different. I’m not going to breakdown #ComeyDay and get into the what happened this morning at the Senate Hearing.

But what I will do is show you John McCain’s excuse for his bizarro world questioning of James Comey. My man was making quite literally, zero sense when questioning the former FBI director. That led to this:

So what’s McCain’s reasoning for his incoherent questions? He stayed up late to watch the Diamondbacks, of course.

Now it all makes sense. He’s an old man and old men need to hit the hay early. You start losing those precious hours of sleep and next thing you know you’re mumbling nonsense in front of the whole country.

Twitter Reacts to John McCain’s Bizarre Questions to James Comey

The questioning of James Comey by the Senate Intelligence Hearing wrapped up the only way it could in 2017, with Senator John McCain incoherently babbling and/or suggesting maybe that Hillary Clinton should be investigated for helping the Russians get Trump elected?

Who the hell knows that John McCain was trying to say? It was babbling nonsense by one of Trump’s leading Republican critics (in name) that left not only James Comey confused, but all of Twitter, which at least had some fun with what was an otherwise serious and somewhat substantive hearing.

Here’s what Twitter had to say on the matter.
