Page 1 Consider (07/31)

  • Mistaken Identity: On Tuesday I posted a nekkid photo of actor Matthew Wolfenden ("Emmerdale") that was misidentified by Cosmo U.K. as Rugby Union fullback Nick Abendanon. This is the real Nick above -- both handsome, but quite similar looking, indeed. (KIT212)

  • Fat Cat: Did you see the 44-pound homeless cat found in New Jersey? (NYP)

  • Coming Soon: I want to send out a huge congratulations to my pal Yen Tan, whose film "Ciao" has been picked up for distribution this fall by Here! Films/Regent Releasing. You may recall that I have blogged about this movie extensively, most recently when it was shown at Newfest earlier this summer here in New York. (Here/Regent Releasing)

  • One Step Forward, Two Steps Back? President Bush signed a sweeping measure Wednesday that provides $48 billion to combat AIDS and other diseases globally and that also ends a long-standing U.S. ban on foreign visitors and immigrants who are HIV-positive. Its repeal, however, does not remove all U.S. travel impediments. Meantime, a new proposal by Bush seems to threaten access to birth control pills. (LAT)

  • Still Wild About Harry: Because the world (and by the world I mean me) can never see enough of model Scott Andreasen. (DudeFlesh) (Link OK; Site not as much.)

  • Giant Shoes to Fill: Paris Hilton isn't someone I normally blog about. But I thought her charity efforts in launching a new footwear line for women with ridiculously large feet was worth mentioning. (Are you reading this, Carly?) You go, Paris! (GossipGirls)

  • Making a Good Thing Better: Olivia Newton-John will host a special edition of Logo's weekly music show The Click List on Friday, Aug. 1 at midnight. (LOGO)

  • Sears Portrait Studio: Who knew "Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford's dad was weatherman Sam Champion? (PerezHilton)

  • EuroTrash: Homophobic attacks in Stockholm that left two gay men fighting for their lives, two others seriously beaten, and three churches vandalized have shocked this city known for its liberal attitude toward homosexuality. (365Gay)

  • Home Run: Photog Karen Thompson caught James Blake -- in Cincinnati for this week's ATP event -- having some fun with Ken Griffey Jr. over the weekend. It seems to have helped his game, he advanced to the third round yesterday with a straight-sets victory over red-hot Gilles Simon, who just beat Roger Federer last week in Toronto. (CNN)

  • Stored Hate: Californians Against Hate officially kicked off its next awareness campaign in its endeavor to let America know where the money is coming from to take away the recently attained freedom to marry in California: Terry Caster owns A-1 Self Storage Co. of San Diego, which has 40 locations throughout California. Caster and his family have contributed nearly $300,000 to the Protect Marriage campaign, making them the biggest contributors from San Diego County where 35 percent of the money came from to qualify Proposition 8 for the Nov. 4 ballot. So effective today, we are asking our millions of friends and supporters all over the United States to help us by calling Terry Caster and asking him why he and his family are so strongly against marriage equality. Corporate Office Number: 800-219-4854, ext. 106 / Customer Service Number: 800-210-8979. (CallTerryCaster)
