michelle obama topless

Plenty of absurd things are “artsy,” like crafting Jesus on the cross out of elephant feces or giving birth inside an art gallery as a live action installation. But a drawing of Michelle Obama topless on the cover of Spain’s Magazine de Fuera de Serie is plain old tasteless. In my opinion, they have every right to depict her artistically, even in poor taste. But that doesn’t mean they should do it. Keep reading »

“True Blood” Ends A Lackluster Season On An Orgasmic & Bloody High Note

Well, That Looks Like Fun!

I was thisclose to being done with “True Blood” after this season, which did not have nearly enough sex and fell too deeply down a weird vampire religion rabbit hole. Not even incestuous sex between Eric and his sister and a far-more-entertaining vampire Tara could hold my interest. But last night’s finale packed a serious punch and maybe compelled me to give the hole show another shot next season. Anyway, be warned, SPOILERS AHEAD! Keep reading »

To say that I am a fan of the British sci-fi show “Doctor Who” would be and understatement.  Not only do I have “DW” viewing parties at my apartment, I own a sonic screwdriver, I’ve eaten fish fingers and custard (a “DW” inside joke), I waited for hours to get a glimpse of the show’s stars when they shot an episode in New York, and I even traveled to London to go to the “Doctor Who Experience.”  Despite some missteps (cough, “Daleks in Manhattan,” cough), “Doctor” Who won my heart(s) long ago, and I keep coming back for more adventures in that blue box.

But then I saw the promo art for season seven in which the titular character of the show, the Doctor, looks darkly determined while carrying his unconscious companion Amy in his arms. (“DW” has always referred to the people who travel with the Doctor as “companions.”)  If my life were a preview for a romantic comedy, this would have been the moment you heard the sound effect of a record scratching to a stop.  What the what?!  Is “DW” really going there? Portraying Amy as merely a victim for the Doctor to save?

It gave me pause, and it made me think about the way the show has portrayed (or betrayed) its female characters in the past. Keep reading »

Skrillex — Yes, Skrillex — To Star In A Remake Of “The Crow”

What fresh hell is this? It appears that wee Corey Feldman lookalike and dub step perpetrator Skrillex is set to star in a remake of “The Crow.” The cursed 1994 film starring Brandon Lee is probably as well known for Lee’s accidental on-set death as it is for being a cult-fave among comic book fans. There’s been four additional “Crow” films since the original, but most have been straight to video. Bradley Cooper was originally supposed to star in the remake, but dropped out. So now Skrillex is set to star in the film, despite the fact that he’s got no prior acting experience, so obviously this is going to end really well. [Mix Mag]

UPDATE: According to a rep for the studio we spoke with, they have not offered the role to Skrillex and have yet to cast anyone in the remake. Phew.

The Next Big Thing: 5 Things To Know About Actress Dreama Walker

Have you heard of Dreama Walker? If you haven’t you will soon. That’s because Dreama is the star of the new indie flick “Compliance,” where she stars as Becky, a fast food employee who unwittingly gets caught up in a prank call scam. Her performance is delicate, naturalistic and very, very good.

If you miss her in “Compliance” (which don’t — it’s definitely worth seeing), you can also catch her in the ABC sitcom “Don’t Trust The B— In Apartment 23,” and in the upcoming movies “The Kitchen” and “Chlorine.”

So what should you know about Dreama?
