Page 1 Consider (04/30)

  • Equal Rights: I'm as fascinated by these YouTube clips of Alexis Arquette bashing her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Schubert Organization president Philip Smith, as much as the next person. But truthfully, I didn't even know it was legal for transgender people to get married in the first place. (Gawker)
  • English 077: If North Carolina's education system is hoping to reduce its dropout rate with more online programs, it might want to get Bryan Setser, director of N.C. Virtual Schools, into some remedial English classes -- online or otherwise -- before letting him talk to the press: "I think irregardless of what party you're affiliated with," he said, "you see the value that online education can save the taxpayers money, and it can also help the work force." I'm guessing Setser was valedictorian at the University of Phoenix, class of 1989. (DailyTarHeel)
  • Well Hello, Stalker! Well, you gotta hand it to Uma Thurman's "suitor" Jack Jordan. Despite having had his heart "broken" by another very famous lady -- "Carol Channing in the early '90s" (was she in her early 90s or was that when it happened?) -- he put his heart on the line for the former Mrs. Hawke. (She calls it stalking, he calls it "romantic.") Truth be told, after her "performance" in "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" I think she's lucky to have a stalker at all. (NYP)
  • The Ginch Made Me Do It: Tired of committing sinful homosexual acts? Maybe it's your underwear's fault. (UndiesDrawer)
  • Is He Experienced? Vivid Entertainment is planning to release a recently discovered Jimi Hendrix sex tape. How much did they get for their soul? (AP) (I didn't get much for mine either: check out the trailer here.)
  • PETA's Wet Dream: Of course, it had to be a a border collie mix named Cupcake that would be ensnared in a trap set legally for wild fur-bearing animals.. What next, a kitten named Dan Matthews? (NYT)
  • The Surreal Life: Kathy Griffin has split from billionaire Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak -- and a week later he's engaged? Hmm. I guess the important thing is he was filmed for "My Life on the D-List," right? (UsWeekly)
  • Reality Check: "The Hills" makes the cover of Rolling Stone. How ever did they get Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag in the same room without killing each other? (RS)
  • Never in My Wildensteinest Dreams: Say it isn't so, Heather Locklear. And I thought Madonna looked weird. (PITNB)
  • Iconic Image: Photographer Joe Lyon discusses his work on Yaz(oo)'s "Upstairs at Eric's" album cover, as well as "In Your Room" and "Nobody's Diary" EPs. (AlisonMoyet)
  • Making a Spectacle of Herself: Lourdes Leon steals her mom's look. (DailyMail)
