This Johnson Has One Big Wad

Sorry. It was there. I had to.

Actor Don Johnson more than doubled his legal judgment against producers of the television show “Nash Bridges” as a judge on Wednesday added $28 million in interest to the sum originally awarded him by a jury.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Stern said he was giving Johnson 10 percent in annual interest dating back to 1998, when the performer signed his contract with the production company Rysher Entertainment LLC.

Johnson, 60, sued Rysher in February 2009 claiming he had been denied his fair share of profits from “Nash Bridges” as a 50-percent owner of the copyright to the San Francisco-based cop drama, which co-starred Cheech Marin and ran for six seasons on CBS ending in 2001.

Gay Gaming Glitch

with 2 comments

Wonder if Microsoft is aware of Fort Dix?

Microsoft Corp. and the chief rules enforcer for Xbox Live are apologizing to a small West Virginia town and a 26-year-old gamer accused of violating the online gaming service’s code of conduct by publicly declaring he’s from Fort Gay — a name the company considered offensive.

The town’s name is real. But when Moore tried to tell Seattle-based Microsoft and the enforcement team at Xbox Live, they wouldn’t take his word for it. Or Google it. Or check the U.S. Postal Service website for a ZIP code.

Instead, they suspended his gaming privileges for a few days until Moore could convince them the location in his profile, “fort gay WV,” wasn’t a joke or a slur: It’s an actual community of about 800 in Wayne County, along West Virginia’s western border with Kentucky.

“At first I thought, ‘Wow, somebody’s thinking I live in the gayest town in West Virginia or something.’ I was mad. … It makes me feel like they hate gay people,” said Moore, an unemployed factory worker who plays shooters like Medal of Honor, Call of Duty and Ghost Recon under the gamertag Joshanboo.

“I’m not even gay, and it makes me feel like they were discriminating,” said Moore, who missed a key Search and Destroy competition because of last week’s brief suspension. His team lost.

Could this be counted as a … HATE CRIME?!?!?!?!?
