To be honest it’s just a great headline. I could have written ‘Playboy Rejects Sarah Palin’ but then most people would recoil in horror from their screens at the mere suggestion of the Republican freak show naked. Kate Gosselin hasn’t asked to appear in a Playboy shoot so it’s not rejection per se but Hugh Hefner was recently asked if there was any possibility that Momzilla would grace the glossy covers of Playboy and Sir Hef said, “No! No!” The original playboy added insult to injury by suggesting he doesn’t even know why she’s on Dancing with the Stars. He explained, “I don’t think she’s a celebrity.” But Hef, it depends on your definition of celebrity because apparently dancing like a shopping cart every week on Dancing with the Stars, having 8 kids on a reality show and getting divorced qualifies as celebrity these days. It must hurt to hear that no one wants to check out your goody basket. Shit, now I am trying not to think of Sarah Palin naked.
I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Speaking of reality show celebs, here is a picture of supermodel Bar Rafaeli posing with the cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore. That is certainly a big meat sandwich she is putting in her mouth isn’t it?


Quentin Tarantino may have re-invented the 70’s Grindhouse double feature as a high concept art film when he teamed up with Robert Rodriguez in 2007 for Death Proof and Planet Terror. Paying homage to these films is great provided you have Tarantino’s dialogue and skillful filmmakers involved. The orginal action films of the period were awful. I would use the word retarded if it wasn’t so un-PC. Take the 1973 film simply entitled Bummer! for example.

BUMMER! (1973)
Dir: William Allen Castleman
Part of a Johnny Firecloud double feature.
Plot: The manager of a rock band fires the drunken psycho bass player, who goes on a rape and murder spree.
Tagline: Groups and Groupies … Sometimes … It’s a Groove … and Sometimes It’s a … Bummer!

Review: All in all, the most you can say is that “Bummer!” is a movie that truly, truly lives up to it’s title.

South Park Ep136Ginger Kids‘ : In a class presentation, Cartman delivers a hate speech, arguing that “Gingers” – children with red hair, light skin, and freckles are inhuman and according to Cartman, all Ginger Kids are born with a disease called “Gingervitus”, which occurs because Gingers have no souls. Because their skin is so light, Ginger Kids must avoid the sun — not unlike vampires. Also be wary of “Daywalkers”, which are people that have red hair, but not the pale skin and freckles. Like Kyle.

This youngster took offence to South Park’s comedy and posted his outrage on YouTube. Turns out South Park are wrong, Gingers do have souls.
