“In America they’re too scared of sex, that’s why he wasn’t nominated. If you look at the best actor list you’re saying, ‘Michael Fassbender is not on that list?’ It’s kind of crazy. But that’s how it is, it’s an American award, let them have it.”

– “Shame” director Steve McQueen on why his star, Michael Fassbender, was snubbed for an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. It’s so true, which is a sad, frustrating commentary on America’s aversion to honest depictions of sex on film. Might I remind you how “Blue Valentine” was initially rated NC-17 because it showed Ryan Gosling going down on Michelle Williams, but “Black Swan” had an R-rating even though it had a Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis sex scene? The thing is, “Shame” isn’t about “SEXY SEXYTIMES,” although, yes, there is a lot of sex in it. The film is actually about how addiction feeds on people trying to feel a gaping, painful hole in their spirit with something else. You know, like, a topic everybody can relate to?  

So, in conclusion, screw you, Oscars. [Press Association]

For the next season of “America’s Next Top Model,” host Tyra Banks is hoping to incite an age-old rivalry between the Brits and Americans. She’s bringing some of her past British “Top Model” contestants over to go up against a crop of seven new model babies in “ANTM: British Invasion.” One’s already doing the “booty tooch.” The gimmicks never stop with this one.

Hi, My name is Julie and I’m a Turtleman-a-holic. I’ve just spent the last three hours watching Animal Planet’s “Call of the Wildman,” and I am hooked. The show follows “The Turtleman” Ernie Brown Jr., a middle-aged guy who lives with his mom and spends his days rooting out wild animals from his friends’ and neighbors’ properties. His specialty is snapping turtles, but he will also help capture and release possums, raccoons and snakes. On one recent episode, The Turtleman humanely removed a large family of rats from a house using peanut butter sandwiches and mint (rats love peanut butter sandwiches but hate the smell of mint — who knew!?). Turtleman has a catch phrase — “live action” — and a posse, the Turtle Crew, who help him capture and save the animals. So yes, basically, we’re in love. [Animal Planet]

Why, exactly, is this slow motion basset hound video so mesmerizing? It could be the dramatic close-ups of those big puppy eyes. It could be swinging folds of basset hound neck skin. It could be those hilariously tiny legs. It could be the peppy pop rock soundtrack. I’m guessing it’s a magical combination of all of the above. Check it out and see for yourself!

Rihanna & Chris Brown Release Not One, But Two Loathsome Songs

Well, the moment we — or at least I – have been dreading has arrive. Tonight, Rihanna and Chris Brown released not one, but two songs they worked on together: Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” remix, on which Chris Brown makes a cameo, and Brown’s new song “Turn Up The Music,” which features Rihanna. The former is especially stomach-turning, as it has Brown crooning, “Girl I wanna fuck you right now / Been a long time I’ve been missing your body / Let me turn the lights down / When I go down it’s a private party.” You can listen to both songs after the jump. I’m headed to the bathroom to vomit. Keep reading »
