Not be so bad anymore

Want to know a few good things about cancer?

There is nobody to blame for it coming. It just comes and takes what it wants.

You know there is nothing the person you love can do different to suddenly recover and come back from cancer. They have to wait and hope forces outside them can make them better.... they can't make themselves better by changing the choices they are making in their lives. They are blameless and just as helpless as you feel.

You never feel anger at them for getting cancer. You feel sad, you feel helpless and you feel unbelievable emptiness when they go. You never feel angry that they let themselves get cancer.... you never blame them.

You know how the cancer story ends. You don't spend hours trying to figure out what would happen if the one you love does "A" if they will get better. What if they do "B"? Will they get better? You never find yourself coming up with plans A through Z and none of them seem to end well. With cancer it does not end well BUT you never get your hopes up by spending hours coming up with plans A through Z.

I lost my mother to cancer and never thought I would feel it was not the hardest way to lose someone. When I lost her, I thought it was the worst. In the last decade I've learned it is not the worst way to lose someone.

I'm finding cancer to not be so bad anymore. There are much worse ways to lose the ones you love... right in front of your very eyes.

He fights Nazis too

In my post yesterday I asked about masculinity. The comments by some of you really revealed some interesting information. The great Andy mentioned an example of the truly masculine; Indiana Jones.

He jogged my memory with his comment. I took a Men's Studies class in college and we were assigned a paper. We had to write about someone in the public eye that embodied the New Man. A person that was masculine. Not emasculated, not feminized yet not a meat-head caveman.

I got an A and my paper was shared with the class. Who did I think embodied the new Man? You guessed it... Indiana Jones.

He was strong. He was handsome. He was intellectual. He was sexual. He had paternal and protector instincts. He had vulnerability but did not cripple himself by trying to hide it. He showed a soft side and was capable of emotion and sensitivity without compromising his masculinity.

Is this character the ultimate example of modern masculinity? If not, who is? Real or fictional, who embodies what you think of as masculine? If its not Indiana Jones, then tell us... it helps if he fights Nazis too (nothing more masculine than fighting Nazis!)

How do you measure

Question for my man-loving readers to answer....

How important is a man's masculinity when deciding if he is attractive? How do you measure a man's masculinity? What makes a man masculine to you? What is masculinity?

Speak up!

The hacks

Who can tell me why, as of recent, all of the good writers are writing TV...

...and all the rest, the hacks, are writing movies?

Midgets are funny too

In the previous post, many of you nominated your candidates for the Top Ten Most Useless Celebrities list. Now I begin to cull this list down to just ten.

Here are the 37 made the final nominee list

Ann Coulter [cyrus]
Anna Benson [mo]
Ashlee Simpson [vegasgustan]
Ashton Kutcher [cyrus]
Beyonce [cyrus]
Carson Daly [cyrus]
Clay Aiken [dan]
David Hasselhoff [Allison]
Denise Richards [dan]
Entire Cast of Laguna Beach [dan]
George W. Bush [cyrus]
Hillary Duff [cyrus]
Jennifer Lopez [dan]
Jennifer Love Hewitt [dan]
Jessica Simpson [dan]
Johnny Knoxville [mo]
Katie Holmes [dan]
Kelly Osborne [dan]
Kevin Federline [dan]
Kid Rock [cyrus]
Lindsay Lohan [dan]
Michael Jackson [dan]
Mischa Barton [dan]
Nick Lache [dan]
Nicole Richie [a*]
Olsen Twins [dan]
Owen Wilson [dan]
Paris Hilton [melina]
Rush Limbaugh [cyrus]
Ryan Seacrest [dan]
Shannon Elizabeth [melina]
Sharon Stone [dan]
Sienna Miller [dan]
Star Jones [a*]
Tara Reid [melina]
Tom Cruise [melina]
Tori Spelling [melina]

We begin by dropping this down to 20 names. I've received dozens of emails asking what criteria I will use to finalize this list. Though the actual process is, at the moment, patent-pending, I will give you some insight.

This list is unique for all the nominees could make the final list. How will I decide the first 17 to be dropped from the list? The first 17 will be those that are LESS useless than the 20 that will remain.

For staters, I am dropping all politicians and pundits:

Ann Coulter [cyrus]
George W. Bush [cyrus]
Rush Limbaugh [cyrus]

Ann gives red-state boys over 50 someone to think about after they take their viagra and mount their 50ish wives.

Speaking of viagra, Rush did lead the conservative radio revolution and kept more than a few pharmacies in South Florida in business. We can call George many things (wait to you read a post I have in draft now) but Useless is not one of them. Tough label for the leader of the free world (like'em or not).

Next I cut those on the list with some talent that have made contributions to their craft

David Hasselhoff [Allison]
Kid Rock [cyrus]
Michael Jackson [dan]
Owen Wilson [dan]
Tom Cruise [melina]
Jessica Simpson [dan]
Ashlee Simpson [vegasgustan]

Sorry, allison, David may now be the cranked Paula on the "America is Talented" show but he will forever be the Knight Rider - Friggin' Knight Rider, for the love of puppies. This elevates him forever above the useless bar. Kid Rock filled Pamela's void for a time and plays all of his own instruments, writes and records his own music. "Cowboy" is a good tune and gets him dropped.

Michael Jackson... one word... Thriller. As his face melts off and his collection of male Bratz dolls grows, he still churned out Thriller which will always be one of the biggest albums of all time. Owen Wilson was actually good in "Behind Enemy Lines". Tom reminds us that relaxation=good and cults=bad. Jessica has a beautiful set of.... lungs. Ashlee is the only reason Saturday Night Live was funny in the last decade.

Here is the final batch to be dropped as less useless

Clay Aiken [dan]
Jennifer Lopez [dan]
Olsen Twins [dan]
Johnny Knoxville [mo]
Ashton Kutcher [cyrus]
Anna Benson [mo]
Shannon Elizabeth [melina]

Without Clay, all of my Internet Chat Closet Mo friends won't have anyone to IM fisting scenarios back-and-forth with. JLo is the reason Puerto Rico is still not a state.

The Olsen Twins are almost old enough to finally ask the question all us boys have been asking for 14 years....

How hot will they be when they grow up? (and does me asking this make me a pedophile? where are my Full House second season DVDs?)

Johnny gets dropped for Jackass the Movie (There are some real laughs in that circus... plus he thinks midgets are funny too). Anna thinks she can play poker and is nice dead money for my poker brothers. Shannon Elizabeth has given me more than one stiff... belly laugh.

Here are the ones left. 20 remain, we go down to 10 in the next few days. I don't look forward to deciding which of these are less useless than the others.

Beyonce [cyrus]
Carson Daly [cyrus]
Denise Richards [dan]
Entire Cast of Laguna Beach [dan]
Hillary Duff [cyrus]
Jennifer Love Hewitt [dan]
Katie Holmes [dan]
Kelly Osborne [dan]
Kevin Federline [dan]
Lindsay Lohan [dan]
Mischa Barton [dan]
Nick Lache [dan]
Nicole Richie [a*]
Paris Hilton [melina]
Ryan Seacrest [dan]
Sharon Stone [dan]
Sienna Miller [dan]
Star Jones [a*]
Tara Reid [melina]
Tori Spelling [melina]
