A Room Of His Own

BY Vanessa in General |

Riddled with crappy overdubbing, confusing dialogue, pointless supporting characters, embarrassing sex scenes, and plot holes galore, the 2003 film The Room is an unequivocal disaster. But thanks to the relentless determination of its enigmatic writer/director/producer/star Tommy Wiseau, it’s also enjoying new life on both coasts as a hot ticket that is single- handedly reviving the lost art of the audience-participation midnight movie. The film has been ... Read More

According to Time, the Mormon Church has finally announced support for gay rights legislation, which, I think a number of people can agree, is (somewhat of) a skip in the right direction. Because of this endorsement, officials in Salt Lake City, where 80% of the lawmakers and governors are members of the Church, unanimously approved two ordinances banning the firing of someone from their job, as well as evicting someone from their residence, because of their sexual ...

Folk Yeah!

BY Vanessa in Music Stuff |

The music video begins rather innocently: two pretty girls, a tall blonde with a guitar and a petite brunette with a ukulele, smile sweetly and sing an ode to blossoming romance. “And like can lead to like-like/And like-like can lead to looove,” they coo. “Sure as the stars above/I’d really like to fuck you, fuck you, fuck you.” Oh! But that’s as raunchy as it gets; the comedy folk duo, who go by the name Garfunkel & Oates, ... Read More
The actual festival is called Honen Matsuri. Celebrated every March 15 in Komaki, a town about 45 minutes north of Nagoya, Japan. This is the time of year where folks haul out a large wooden penis to give three cheers to fertility and renewal.  The custom is an old one that is connected to bringing about a good harvest and having babies.  I have nothing against a giant penis.  I love a giant penis. But I love my lady parts, too. Breasts and vagina ... Read More
In a recent interview, Demi Moore talked about her upcoming birthday (she'll be 47 tomorrow), the lack of well-written movie roles that come her way, and her hatred of the term "cougar," which she has become the poster-woman for ever since she started seeing the sixteen-years-younger Ashton Kutcher.  Why, she asks, is she singled out for her relationship to a younger man when she has obviously not been the first famous woman to do this? And why the use of the ... Read More

BY Intern nicole! in General |
