The Tiddy Bear!!!

BY Dawn in General

About a year ago I saw this infomercial and was confused, intrigued, but also completely amused. I had forgotten about it until recently when former 'tern, Alison F. reminded me of it's weirdness. But although this commercial seems strange, it is not a joke! For too many years, drivers and passengers have suffered from the stiffness of their seat belts cutting into their shoulders. This has been a serious problem, and thank goodness somebody has finally come up ... Read More

15-Year Party Wrap Up!

Quentin, why?

BY Laurie in General

The gossip around here today is 1. why is Quentin Tarantino remaking "Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill?" Thats like remaking Citizen Kane! And to make matters worse, (2) he's casting Britney Spears as Varla? WTF? Cmon, I know its hard to find actresses in Hollywood who actually have tits and ladylike curves, but puhleese. Russ Meyer is probably rolling over in his porn filled grave as we speak. Emily would cast Chynna Doll, but I don't know, she looks like a ... Read More
