Page 1 Consider (05/08)

  • All About Sleeve: God, if there is even an ounce of truth to this story that Mario Lopez is so consumed with bicep envy over his "A Chorus Line" co-star Nick Adams that he's making him wear a long-sleeve hoodie to cover them up then I can die happy! First of all, how someone with that hot of a body could be so insecure about is an ABC After-School Special that I wanna watch. More importantly though, is A.C. Slater already prepared to fill the shoes of forgotten divas Linda Evans and Joan Collins? (NYP)

  • Changing Times: After six years of delays (are you reading, Phil Spector?), R. Kelly is finally about to go on trial for allegedly having sex with a 13-year-old girl on videotape. (These days that would be called a ticket to stardom, but ...) (AP)

  • Son Down: I realize minor league baseball player Koby Clemens is upset and just trying to defend his embattled father in this article, but I could have sworn his "defense" was more like an admission of guilt. Referring to Brian McNamee, who has told the authorities that he injected the senior Clemens with performance enhancing drugs, Koby said: "There's a lot of people that have done tons and tons of worse stuff, including the man that is against him." (Ya might wanna button it up, kid. Thanks.) (NYP)

  • Gay Per View: LOGO television has just announced the launch of the world's largest online of LGBT videos, available through With more than 1,200 video clips covering every programming genre, the videos are all ad-supported and viewable on Windows and Mac, providing a sampling of content from Logo’s digital cable channel. Another 1,800 videos currently housed at Logo’s portfolio of Web sites will be added during the coming weeks. (LOGOonline)

  • Nary a Napster: Universal Music Group confirmed Tuesday that it has reached a deal with file-sharing site Qtrax to allow free, legal downloads of UMG music. Qtrax announced in January that it had the backing of "all the major labels" to distribute music free online, generating revenue with ads. If they keep this up, they're going to completely take the fun out of stealing music. (AP)

  • Primary Colors: Openly gay Chapel Hill businessman Jim Neal finished a distant second in the race for the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate from North Carolina. From the start Neal faced a daunting task. Democratic Party officials recruited eventual winner Kay Hagan to run against him and even LGBT groups like the Human Rights Campaign failed to endorse him in the race. He also lacked in fundraising and was unable to run television ads. (BAR)

    I'd hesitate before calling HRC an LGBT rights group anymore.
