Trailer Park: “Where The Wild Things Are,” “The Stepfather,” And “New York, I Love You”

I shouldn’t even have to tell you how important it is to go to the movies this week, because “Where The Wild Things Are” is finally here and you should be so frickin’ excited!!! In case you’re not into beautiful, fantastic movies and would rather be terrified, there is also “The Stepfather.” And if you’re just not in the mood to relive your childhood sense of adventure but want to see an awesome movie about relationships, “New York, I Love You” is also in limited release now, even though it wasn’t supposed to come out until February. So rejoice. And get popcorn! Keep reading »

Is This Ad For Jamieson’s Raspberry Ale Sexist?

Snow White has been made over into “Ho White,” smokin’ a fag after, apparently, a rockin’ roll in the hay with her favorite seven dwarves. The ad is for Australian brewery Jamieson’s raspberry ale which is being marketed as “anything but sweet.” The thing is, the company behind it, The Foundry, forgot to ask Disney’s permission to turn one of its fairy tale heroines in to a big ol’ gangbanging slut, and they’ve had to pull the ad. Too bad, because I think it’s more funny than offensive. [AdFreak] Keep reading »

Roofied Letter Writer Responds To Lucinda Rosenfeld’s Advice

Not to beat this story dead, but a commenter pointed out that the “Friend Or Foe” letter writer has responded to Lucinda Rosenfeld’s advice — on Double X! Here’s a portion of what she wrote and we would like to say, “YOU GO GIRL.”

“For the record, I really was roofied, ma’am. The idea that I must provide you with a tox screen to prove it is galling … But in the end, I don’t need your advice after all—I figured it out all by myself. Ten years of friendship is a long time, but I was clinging to an institution and a bond that these women abandoned years ago. Perhaps we continued to see each other socially because it was easier than forging new bonds. I’m not sure. For now, these women might be in my social circle due to our vast network of mutual friends, but they are certainly not the close confidantes I once thought I had. P.S. The day I rely more on a boyfriend than on a best girlfriend is the day I lose hope for womankind.”

Quick Pic: Dreams Do Come True

Last night I came face to face with my number-one celebrity crush, Ryan Gosling. His band, Dead Man’s Bones (which is actually awesome and not like other “actor bands” that suck), performed in New York and I went and acted like a fool. Seriously, I will never mock women acting like idiots at concerts again, because last night I was one of them. In fact, I believe I moaned out loud at one point. I took a bunch of crappy photos with my iPhone, including this one, which was shot just before Ryan and I went into the bathroom and made a baby together. Just kidding. I wish. More crappy photos after the jump and ZOMG IT WAS THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE!!! (P.S. This post goes out to Simcha, who was supposed to go too, but she’s been stuck in bed with a case of meningitis. We miss you sister!) Keep reading »

This Is Sick: Balloon Boy Barfs On Live TV


Alright, WTF is going on with this “Balloon Boy” story? For starters, can we stop calling Falcon Heene that, because, remember, he wasn’t actually in the balloon. Secondly, was this a hoax or not? The family appeared on “Larry King” last night and Falcon seemingly called out his parents for faking the whole incident saying, “You guys said we did this for the show ….” Then this morning, the whole family appeared again on “Today” and his dad, Richard, said he was appalled that anyone would even suggest they staged this whole thing for publicity. Meanwhile, poor little Falcon barfed during the interview and Meredith Vieira and his father ignored it and continued on with the interview. Someone take the cameras off these people and put that little boy to bed. Keep reading »

Diva Hotel’s Cougar Package Deal Grosses Us Out

According to The New York Times, cougars are not only trendy, but they’re here to stay! And if that’s the case, she’s gonna need a place to stay, when she’s on one of her prowls. That must be the rationale behind Diva Hotel’s “Cougars With Personality” package. The San Francisco boutique hotel is offering sexy older ladies a one night stay, “2 animal print Hanky Panky thongs” (would she wear anything else under her impossibly tight mini?!), “2 lemondrop cocktails” (Cosmos are so last year), two $25 gift certificates to the spa, a complimentary bra fitting for two at Nordstrom (because a cougar needs to “hold ‘em high!”), and the “Huntress Road Map,” which is a list of all the cougar-friendly bars in the city. Prices start at $199, cabana boys not included. Seriously, who would actually go for this crap? Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: When Was The Last Time You Cried?

In the time I have been interviewing the guys on my IM about everything from anal sex and condom use to masturbation and cheating, they have never been as uncomfortable with a question as they were with this one. A study out of Australia says that men cry an average of six times a year, while women cry 30-64 times or a year (or 2 hours and 14 minutes a day!). We already asked you how often you cry, but I decided to ask the fellas when was the last time they shed a tear and why. I was pretty stunned. Keep reading »

The Daily Ovulation: The PS22 Chorus Is Gonna Run This Town

What’s that you hear? Yeah, that’s the sound of my uterus giving the PS22 kids a standing ovation for their rendition of Jay-Z’s “Run This Town.” The little lead vocalist is astounding, the rap segment (which the chorus wrote) is awesome, and I just love watching all the sassy little girls in the crowd gettin’ DOWN as they belt out Rihanna’s refrain. To find out more about this amazing school chorus (which has recorded with the band Passion Pit!), check out their blog. Keep reading »
