Viva James!


Your Mail: Stop the leak now • June 27, 2010

Recently I saw on "Anderson Cooper 360" where nationally respected and recognized presidential campaign coordinator, commentator and Louisiana native James Carville was the very first to point out the thoughts of thousands in our state by telling the millions of viewers that if this monumental catastrophe had hit the sandy shores of Nantucket Sound, the Emerald Coast of Florida or beautiful beaches of Hawaii (President Obama's home state) action to cap the oil leak and stop its landfall would have been swift and dramatic. I think Mr. Carville hit a bullseye with that analogy considering the federal government just sees most of the Louisiana coastline as dirty, overgrown weeds of wetlands and heavily shrub-infested marshes that people can't put their lawn chairs and umbrellas on and can't run out for a dip in the clear blue surf.

It is a very disturbing theory but then again you don't have wealthy peoples' summer homes and livelihoods residing on the South Louisiana coastline unlike the shores of Cape Cod, the Florida Panhandle or Hawaiian beaches.

I worked and lived on Cape Cod for three years and its beaches were the "bread and butter" of its tourist industry and any notion of even a tiny oil leak coming from a tanker offshore would have put the Coast Guard, state of Massachusetts and its governor on high-alert with measures to react and remedy within 24-hours.

Not here. Two months later and millions of dollars of damage to tourism, our precious wildlife, clean water, beautiful marshlands and seafood industry we're still waiting for answers and for a remedy.

It's a horrific and toxic combination when Washington politics sleep with "Big Oil" resulting in this continuing catastrophe.

All I can do is thank people like James Carville for his "no bars" hot-tempered passionate stand on TV. He's so right!

41st Gay Pride Parade


Typically, the NYC Gay Pride Parade is held on the last day of the week in late June. Also held on the last day are the Gay Pride Festival, along with the annual Dance on Pier 54 (13th St. at the Hudson River) following the parade wrapping up Gay Pride Week in a grand fireworks display.

2010 marks the 41st Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in 1969, and a reminder that the Gay Pride Parade was not always such a festive event.

Today, the Gay Pride Parade is an upbeat and festive event that draws huge crowds from around the Metro New York area numbering more than one million participants and spectators.

The starting point is 5th Ave. and 36th Street and goes South to end up at Greenwich Village, where the Stonewall Bar still is standing in all it's wonderful glory!

Harry Equus



Harry Potter Theme Park Equus Pavilion Remains Open, And Profitable, In Spite of Silly Protests

ORLANDO (CAP) (CNN) (P.E.T.E.R.) - Hello everybody. This is Anderson Cooper reporting from Orlando FL. for Anderson Cooper 360º on CNN. I had just enough time to get away from those pesky "tar balls," which, I must admit, became a bit comfortable at the touch on my hand: soft, warm, roundish, bumpy, tender, smelly... huh... where was I...? OH! Orlando, and... Oh, yeah, Harry Potter Equus, I mean, "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter," let's go to the Islands of Adventure theme park which has only been open a short time, but protests by conservative watchdog groups have been trying to force Universal to close the park's controversial "Equus Pavilion."

Based on the 2007 revival of the Peter Shaffer play that featured Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, the Equus Pavilion allowed guests to ride animatronic blinded horses past naked Radcliffe look-alikes.

"In retrospect, the attraction may have been too avant-garde for some prunes," admitted, off the record, Bill Douglas, president of Universal Orlando.

"I had to cover my son's eyes - it was bloody manky, all those Daniel Radcliffes running around in their altogether," told me Sean Lowsley of Wolverhampton, England, "It was too life like," he added. He said he had traveled to the park with his son Millicent, 12, and waited 10 hours to get in last weekend. "Millicent kept opening my fingers to take a peek at the... ahem, horses."

"They had some cellophane or something covering their naughty bits, but they were clearly in the nuddy," claimed Mr. Lowsley. "At one point one of them tried to have relations with our bloody mechanical horse!" Lowsley went on to clarify that he meant "bloody" literally, as the horses were all bleeding from their artificial eyes.

"The naked Radcliffes are only supposed to nuzzle the horses," responded Douglas, noting that park managers had reviewed security tapes and could only identify a handful of incidences where the cast members may have gotten "a little too randy" with the robot stallions.

"They're attractive animals," Douglas admitted.

A Daniel Radcliffe look-alike (or is it?) in ALL his glory at the
Equus Pavilion, a section of the newly opened Universal's
"The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" in Orlando, FL.

The attraction drew immediate fire from conservatives, many of them already no fan of the Potter series. The watchdog group Mothers Against Everything (MAE) called Universal's decision to incorporate Shaffer's 1973 play about a young man's violent religious and sexual fascination with horses into a family theme park "a very naughty choice."

"Actually, Mr. Radcliffe's decision to appear in that play in the first place was a bad choice, what with all the other things he could have done," told me MAE spokesman Darlene Fortenski. "Why couldn't he have just made a wholesome record album, like that nice Mitchel Musso [of Disney's Hannah Montana]?"

I imagined Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus sliding up and down that darn striper's pole and giggled. Ms. Fortenski wasted her time when she gave me a luscious look.

Ms. Fortenski also noted that since the Potter books debuted in 1997, more than 200 million adolescents have converted to Satanism. "Although that's sort of just an estimate," she admitted. "And I hope it's just a fad," she added, "just like that rumor I hear about some of the guys turning gay for one to six months... Sometimes longer."

I sprayed her with my Diet Coke and almost choked on it. This time I could not restrain my giggles. And left Ms. Fortenski drenched, stunned and possibly excited.

The Equus Pavilion never closed at all, instead another controversial attraction also opened: "Professor Dumbledore's Wild Fabulous Ride," which features leather-clad attendants and music by Abba, the Village People and Gloria Gaynor. The ride is based on Potter creator J.K. Rowlings' 2007 acknowledgement that the Dumbledore character is gay.

"I'm kind of surprised they based a whole attraction around Dumbledore's sexuality -- I was so happy to hear about it though -- the hell with MEA, MAI, MAE, whatever, and god bless Ms. Fuckortenski, the advertisement the theme park's got from her complaints has been invaluable."

"But I'm earning about a million a day from that bloody park, so whatever they want to do is fine with me," Rowlings added.

Who Is Tony?


Golden parachute unlikely if Hayward leaves BP

BP CEO Tony Hayward has become the subject of intense criticism from investors and lawmakers in the wake of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

By Ben Rooney, staff reporter
June 25, 2010: 10:06 AM ET

NEW YORK ( -- If embattled BP chief executive Tony Hayward leaves the company, he is not likely to walk with a massive windfall, compensation experts said.

While his departure is not imminent, speculation is rampant that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico will cost Hayward his job. According to a prediction market run by Intrade, there is a 70% chance Hayward will be gone before the year is out.

That raises the question of how much severance he could receive if he steps down.

BP spokesman David Nicholas would not comment when asked about a possible severance plan, adding that Hayward remains the company's chief executive.

But experts say Hayward will probably not get a lucrative package of bonus money and stock awards that many U.S. companies give to outgoing CEOs as so-called golden parachutes.

"He will be lucky to get a single year's salary," said Paul Hodgson, a senior researcher at The Corporate Library, a governance group. "And even that could be mitigated in certain circumstances."

Hayward's salary last year was just over 1 million British pounds, or $1.5 million, according to BP's annual report. He also received a bonus worth more than $3 million and stock valued at nearly $1 million in 2009, the report said.

Given his recent track record, however, Hayward will probably not get a bonus this year, Hodgson said. It is also unlikely that he will receive much in the way of stock awards, which are often the most lucrative part of a severance package.

According to BP's annual report, Hayward stands to gain nearly 1.2 million "performance shares" under a deferred compensation plan for company directors. But those shares, which would vest in 2011, are contingent on "an assessment of safety and environmental sustainability," the report said.

"If there are shares that are unvested, such as the performance shares, they are unlikely to vest," said Hodgson. "Shareholder return is not going to look good, and the performance condition won't be met."

Shares of BP's U.S.-listed stock have plunged 50% in the weeks since the April 20 disaster and shareholder groups are threatening to sue BP for damages.

The sell-off could also hit Hayward, who owned over 500,000 options to buy U.K.-listed shares of BP at the end of last year, according to the company's annual report. Those options, which are set to expire in 2011 or 2012, are currently worthless. But they could have some value if the stock recovers.

Jail time for BP CEO?
To be sure, Hayward will not be destitute if he leaves BP. In his 28 years of service, he has amassed a pension worth over $16 million, according to the annual report.

"Retirement is really the bulk of what he will see," said Julie Davidson, a consultant at Cogent Compensation Partners. But it is not clear whether the 53-year old executive will be eligible for retirement benefits before he turns 60, she added.

Davidson said BP's board appears to have more discretion over severance payments than companies in the United States - particularly when performance is lacking.

"This is a contrast to what you see in the U.S.," she said. "He's probably not going to get very much."

The average severance package for the chief executive of a major U.S. corporation is three times annual salary, plus bonus and stock awards, according to Hodgson.

These types of golden parachutes were intensely criticized last year after a number of chief executives at financial firms were awarded billions of dollars in compensation despite exceptionally poor performance.

Hodgson, who previously worked for the London-based publication Executive Compensation Review, said that few U.K. companies award severance packages comparable to their U.S. counterparts.

"In the U.K., compensation committees tend to have a little bit more muscle and shareholders have more say when it comes to poor performance," he said.

Shore on our shores
The erstwhile Weaz-el takes time out of an eclectic workload for a return to Hawaii for a show

By Gary C.W. Chun

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jun 25, 2010

Pauly Shore's comedy career has shifted more than once
since his MTV days. His latest project is a direct-to-video
"mockumentary" called "Adopted."

Pauly Shore may not be the goofball he was once, but he still likes to get goofy.

Consider his latest project, "Adopted," a mockumentary of his that riffs on how privileged celebrities travel to third-world countries to take in orphans, in order to make themselves feel real, relevant and, on a cynical note, stay in the public eye.

The direct-to-video film was released last week, and Shore did some clever cross-promotion with the help of the Funny or Die website. A viral video was made that shows a serious Shore being "interviewed" by CNN's Anderson Cooper. (Shore was inserted into footage of an earlier interview Cooper did with Angelina Jolie about her own international adoptions.)

Shore plays an exaggerated version of himself in "Adopted." During his attempts to snag the "right" orphan during a visit to South Africa, he creates one embarrassing faux pas after another.

The comedian still does his fair share of stand-up work as well, and he's looking forward to returning to his favorite place -- Hawaii -- for a gig at Pipeline Cafe next week.

"I've been to Hawaii so many times, it's so much a part of my history," he said last week by phone from his management office in Los Angeles. "Over the 20 years that I've visited there, I think the first time people saw me was at the Sheraton Waikiki ballroom. I remember playing the Wave Waikiki when it was still around, and hosting a bikini contest at the Shorebird."

One reason for his earlier travel to the islands was his mother Mitzi's expansion of her famous Comedy Store franchise to Waikiki for a bit during the 1980s. Shore's own star rose between the early and the mid-'90s, as he graduated from being a MTV VJ to expanding his popular party animal persona the Weaz-el to movies. (Remember "Encino Man"? "Bio-Dome"?) His career fall after that period, however, was so steep that he even parodied himself years later in the 2003 video feature "Pauly Shore is Dead."

Still, Shore is one of those well-connected industry players who can find work on the periphery until, if or when the spotlight shines on him once again -- and the man certainly doesn't lack for ideas and projects.

"I like to tackle things that stimulate me," he said. "It could be a scripted movie like 'Pauly Shore is Dead' was, or stand-up, or the 'Adopted' mockumentary. Even with 'Adopted,' where things were set up and shot sometimes on the fly, I kept some sort of focus and vision amongst the organized chaos.

"In this business, I have to keep, like, 10 things going on at once. Like one of the meets I had today was with MTV about doing a morning show.

"I take on work case by case," he said. "There's no formula out here. Sometimes, I would bump into somebody that's doing a movie and he offers me a part, so I get work for three weeks. Or I get calls from my agent and friends. It's how I live my life. I'm not waiting for the phone to ring.

"I've produced my own TV shows and web shorts, so I know how to talk the talk. Am I great at it? No, but I'm getting better at it. Right now, I've got a couple scripts that I'm trying to get financing for now, and I'll be hosting another Showtime comedy special that I'll be shooting in the fall."

WHEN HE'S not busy, Shore said he likes to visit the islands at least once a year.

"When I'm on Oahu, I like visiting Sandy Beach and the North Shore. Waikiki's a little too crazy for my tastes now. On Maui, Kaanapali and Kihei are pretty cool, as well as driving on the road to Hana."

For his stand-up gigs, Shore admits that "at the end of the day, in order for me to keep from pulling my hair out of frustration, I don't want to go up on stage doing the same routines over and over again. I like to feel out and play off of the audience.

"I'm glad to see that live comedy is a staple on Wednesdays at Pipeline Cafe, a room I haven't played before. In my eyes and ever since Andy Bumatai, Hawaii has generally left comedy on the side of the road. There's nothing on Maui. It's a shame."

Besides the occasional business jaunt overseas, Shore said, "The good part about my situation is I don't spend too much time here in L.A. I'm traveling so much that I don't get so burned out from living here.

"My comedy has developed from being a native Los Angeleno. I grew up on the Sunset Strip. I think back on how it used to be back in the '70s, the '80s, when punk rock and heavy metal used to be featured at such landmarks as the Whisky-A-Go-Go and the Roxy. I remember as a child my mom driving me from the club and seeing these punk rockers spitting on the windshield.

"It used to be crazy. Now, it's not how it was before. Instead, you see a lot of tourist vans driving around celebrities' homes."

As for the 42-year-old Shore, he's content with his current lot in life.

"The way I look at it, first of all, I'm lucky people still come up to me. There are times where I wanna chill, but it's OK for people to recognize me after so many years. Sometimes, when I leave my house, it's, 'Yo, what's up?' and 'Yeee!' I'm like the comedy politician. It is what it is."

Anderson Cooper Definitely an Operation Mockingbird CIA Agent

Intel Hub (Alex Thomas & Virus1244) - Anderson Cooper, for those of you who don’t know, is one of CNN’s top reporters. He hosts the show “Anderson Cooper 360”, and also hosted a show for ABC entitled “The Mole”.

There are many well established links that connect Anderson to the New World Order, through the Rothschild banking dynasty, and even his own family, the Vanderbilt's.

His mother is Gloria Vanderbilt, and if that is not proof enough, his lineage can be traced back to Cornelius Vanderbilt, the founder of the Vanderbilt fortune. The Vanderbilt family is known to be an interconnecting family within the “Illuminati”

Now that some of his history has been established, let’s get to the meat of the subject. Anderson Cooper was reported in 2007 by a mainstream pop-culture website called Radar Online as being a former CIA agent.

Following his sophomore and junior years at Yale—a well-known recruiting ground for the CIA—Cooper spent his summers interning at the agency’s monolithic headquarters in Langley, Virginia, in a program for students interested in intelligence work. His involvement with the agency ended there, and he chose not to pursue a job with the agency after graduation, according to a CNN spokeswoman, who confirmed details of Cooper’s CIA involvement to Radar.
