Massive Explosion In Beirut Chalked Up To 2,700 Tons Of Carelessly Stored Ammonium Nitrate Comments (0)

Beirut-explosion-boycultureAn explosion that rocked Beirut Tuesday has killed 70+ (at least) and injured thousands. The fierce blast — viewed countless times on video because it occurred after an initial fire that attracted attention — packed about as much of a punch as a small nuclear device.

It is thought that the explosion was triggered by some 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in a warehouse at the harbor, an egregious and fatal error. It had apparently been confiscated up to six years ago.

Scotty Bowers Biopic Set; Big Names Attached Comments (0)

Who will play Scotty Bowers in the new movie based on his life — and why is it being written by Seth Rogen and not somebody gay?

These are the big questions now that it's been announced that Luca Guadagnino will direct the adaptation of Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood from a script by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Casting is not available, but I see someone like Taron Egerton, IMO. NO need for it to be a gay actor; Scotty, who died in October, knew his way around a penis but certainly was not gay.

I liked the book, I loved Matt Tyrnauer's far more interesting doc, and I am very hopeful that this movie will be everything that Ryan Murphy's Hollywood was not.

Or maybe even just be ANYTHING that it was not.

Great Scotty footage here, not too long before his death.

More Scotty 'n' you can handle:
