Fall TV Guide: “The Walking Dead” Was Halloween-tastic


Two months ago, Sunday night was the best night for television thanks to the “True Blood” and “Mad Men” double header. Now we get a series that combines elements of both. “The Walking Dead” is the new series from AMC, the channel that brought you “MM.” And it’s a gross-out monster shocker, in the vein of “TB.” Keep reading »

Feminists Say Lad Mags Should Be On The Top Shelf Next To Porn

Wondering what happened to your Maxim magazine? An activist group in the U.K. — that calls itself Object — storms into stores and magazine stands throughout London once a month on “Feminist Fridays,” stuffing lad mags into paper bags scribbled with phrases like “This magazine dehumanizes women! Don’t buy it! and “Love women, hate sexism!” Object say lad mags like Maxim (former employer of our dear Amelia, as well as John DeVore) and the U.K.’s Zoo are just watered-down versions of porn magazines like Hustler and even if they aren’t as, um, gynecologically educational as pornographic magazines, they’re just as raunchy and disrespectful in their depictions of women.

“Tiny Furniture” Takes An Honest Look At Post-College Freak-Outs

The netherworld between college and actual adulthood can be one of the most confusing times of life. Not yet fully formed, not truly who you’re going to be, you crawl clumsily through jobs, apartments and relationships. Lena Dunham, the writer and director of the new film “Tiny Furniture,” knows exactly what we’re talking about. She made the coming-of-post-college-age film when she was only a wee 24 and manages to perfectly encapsulate the hysterical blindness of it all. The film resonates with so much uncomfortable truth that comic genius Judd Apatow is now producing her upcoming HBO pilot. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde


This weekend’s “Saturday Night Live,” hosted by Jon Hamm, was basically a slam dunk. But my favorite part was the digital short where musical guest Rihanna played opposite Andy Samberg’s “Shy Ronnie” character. Ronnie really needs to exercise that voicebox. Uh-oh, boner alert! Keep reading »

Zach Galifianakis To Be Muppet-a-fied

Robert Downey, Jr. recently opened his big mouth on accident, and no, it wasn’t to tell me he loves me, sigh. But it’s pretty much the next best thing: Zach Galifianakis is going to be in the next Muppet movie! Yay! But who will he play? While normally I’d say he’d make a terrific live-action Fozzie Bear, after seeing Zach’s cheesecake shots in Vanity Fair, I think he’s a shoo-in for Miss Piggy! Keep reading »

How Much Do The “Teen Moms” Make Compared To Other Reality TV Stars?

The internet is abuzz with some news about “Teen Moms” Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, and Catelynn Lowell. A figure has gotten out on how much MTV pays them for participating in the series. And considering that all of them struggle financially on the show—Farrah gets a job as a waitress, Maci worries about paying bills, and Catelynn is freaked about the price of community college—they actually make pretty good money, a reported $60K to $65K per season or about $5,000 per episode. [Huffington Post]

Now, that is a lot of money, especially considering that 75 percent of teen moms who aren’t on MTV end up on welfare within five years. It’s enough money that it should alter the making-ends-meet theme of the show, and it is more than many professionals make in a year. But instead of berating these teens, I’d like to put their paychecks in the context of what other reality TV stars make. And let’s just say that compared to the $1.25 million dollars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt made in 2008 for their insane on-camera antics, this is pocket change. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Saw 3D,” “Strange Powers,” “Monsters,” “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”

I know it’s Halloween weekend and you’ve got costume parties to attend and sexy pirates to manhandle, but just in case you decide you need a break from all that teeth-rotting candy corn and ineffective fright tactics, you can always escape to the movies! Chances are, they’re probably going to be empty anyway except for the die-hard “Saw” fans. So now’s the perfect time to see “Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields” because it’s totally not Halloween-themed and if no one else is there, you can totally throw a little party and talk to the screen. There are other movies coming out too, but I care slightly less about those, so if you want to know more, keep reading! Keep reading »
