Lost is the best show on television possibly ever for a lot of reasons, five of them being 1) Sawyer, 2) Jack, 3) Sayid, 4) Jin, and 5) Desmond. Also, the amazing, twisting, turning plot line that forces me to think about things like physics and gravitational pulls and time travel and wormholes, which I haven’t done since I was a Trekkie. There’s not a ton of sex and relationships on this awesome show, but the only positive thing about a “Kate” episode, is that you know there’s going to be some airtime for Sawyer’s shirtless chest. Last night was one such Kate episode, and the two got down in a scene that kind of made our loins burn. In a good way! We won’t give away any of last night’s plot twists (Oh. My. God. By the way.), but here’s a totally gratuitous image of Sawyer, for your enjoyment. [ABC: Lost] Keep reading »
America’s Next Top Model is kind of a reason for living. Which may explain why so many of the contestants have insane sob stories to tell during the audition process. Each year it seems like there’s always one girl who’s been through a really hard time — Tiffany grew up in the ‘hood; Amanda, the fair beauty who’s going blind; Brittany, who got into a car accident and suffered brain damage that affects her short term memory; the list goes on and on. But this year, for Cycle 10, Tyra and Company found some girls from the school of hard knocks that made our jaws drop. Dominique was in an abusive relationship; Marvita was raped; and Fatima, who was born in Somalia, was circumsized as a child. Umm, isn’t this supposed to be a light-hearted show about modeling and drag queens and being fierce? Tyra just loves to exploit the sad back stories of her contestants for ratings and very rarely does one of these women actually win. That said, we have a feeling gorgeous Fatima is going to go far and if her story, featured on a craptastic reality TV show, gets the issue of genital mutilation more attention, than so be it.

We’re not super sold on the other half of Scientology’s hottest couple, but there’s no denying that Mrs. Cruise has got some fierce fashion sense. Keep reading »
I’m being kind of stalked right now. Not in a scary way, but in an annoying way. A guy that I had a dalliance with many years ago has made a career change from bartender to candidate for a rather high position in state government. A few months ago he messaged me on Friendster, alerting me to his campaign and checking in on how I was. Ever since then, I’ve been included on his campaign’s mailing list and the emails have not stopped. Nearly everyday I am reminded of how he is a real Democrat for change, but what I’m really reminded of is how I once took him to Banana Republic to help him pick out shoes to wear when he saw his ex-girlfriend again. I am alerted to the five new endorsements he has received, but the real alert is the subtle nausea I feel over the fact that he was uncut. Here is the problem — even though I want the guy to win because his intentions seem good, I desperately want to be deleted from his mailing list so the bad memories from my single life go away. But how can I do that without seeming cruel… or like a bad Democrat? Any advice? Keep reading »
Dear Randy, Paula, and Simon,
Seriously, how dumb are you guys to give up on Josiah Leming, a guy who actually writes his own (amazing) songs, sings Mika’s “Grace Kelly” as an audition song, has the adorable look that teens (and, um, women) will go crazy for, and has a voice that channels some of the most popular bands making money today? And you actually let through that kid with the hair-band highlights? Out. Of. Touch.
