Mister D: I’m trying some new things FB is offering (Oy!) One thing is there is a poll at the end of the video where you rate it. I did it on the fly, so if you have some ideas of how to name the options, make a comment. I’d like to see which vids are like the best so I can show them more. Once the video starts, hover your pointer over the video and a symbol will come up that let’s you vote at anytime. That only works if you enlarge the video, otherwise the poll should come up at the end. If you’ve never seen the vid before, wait til the end to vote. Or this might just not work…lol….of course, it’s me, Don, Mister D, The Gay Pundit Read More

Bette Midler Revealed Secrets Of Her Successful, 34-Year-Long Marriage To Martin Von Haselberg
November 3, 2018

Bette Midler and husband Martin

“Behind every great man there’s a great woman” is a familiar expression, but what about great men behind great women? This may sound silly, but it seems to be the case for Bette Midler, whose marriage to Martin von Haselberg didn’t kill her career – it helped her talent thrive.

A guide to a successful marriage, Bette-Midler style

In 1984, Bette Midler was an accomplished singer and actress when she met her almost-colleague, Martin von Haselberg, who was probably less well-known than her. The two immediately felt that they belonged together and tied the knot about six weeks after their first meeting. Their daughter, actress Sophie von Haselberg, arrived on November 14, 1986.

Video: I Shall Be Released – Divine Madness – Bette Midler -1980

Mister D: Ahh!!!! Another classic, Saw her do this on Broadway, Divine Madness, Those that missed the early concerts will never fully grasp how electrifying she was, especially on certain songs. My body would tense up, I’d be on the edge of my seat, it looked like it hurt her to put so much emotion in a song. For most of the concert, I’d be drained of energy, so I’d have to go back, but the same thing always happened. LOL

Throughout your career, you’ve played various matriarchs — the mothers in “Poetic Justice,” “The Preacher’s Wife” and “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” the aunt in “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and now the grandmother on “black-ish” — and you’ve named your memoir, “The Mother of Black Hollywood,” accordingly. Did you ever feel typecast? No, I love these roles. What has happened with the younger generation that started watching me on “Fresh Prince” is that I developed a relationship with them. I was parked on Santa Monica Boulevard just yesterday, and a young African-American woman stopped her car, and she just reached her hand out of the window and whispered, “Thank you.” What can I tell you, kid? I’m doing my best. Read More

Video: AI researchers make SCARY Halloween-themed ‘deepfakes’ video of Donald Trump as Winnifred Anderson

By using 3,000 photos of Donald Trump and working in collaboration with deepfakes expert DeepHomage, they were able to insert the American President into a number of scenes from Young Frankenstein and Hocus Pocus.

This clip shows Trump replacing Bette Midler in 1993’s Hocus Pocus.

“Deepfakes technology is getting better and better at faking the content, but researchers are also coming up with new ways to ‘detect’ fakes. So I don’t think there will ever be a time (at least in [the] near future) where somebody will create a deepfakes video where nobody detects that it is [a] forgery.” Read More
