Culturista: Your Guide To The Week, From “Degrassi” To “Friends With Benefits”

Today, I am in a “Harry Potter” hangover. For weeks, there was so much buildup. And while the movie was wonderful, now it’s just … over. So thank goodness that a new pop culture phenomenon begins afresh tonight. Finally, “Degrassi” is back! Now, I have been through my fair share of guilty pleasure TV shows over the years, but “DegrassI: The Next Generation” has been one of the most enduring. For the past 11 seasons, I’ve watched Spinner and Jimmy give way to Emma and Manny, give way to Mia and Peter, give way to Holly J and Declan. The best part of this Canadian teen soap (based on the “Degrassi” series of the ’80s) is watching the young characters you don’t care too much about blossom into almost-adults. For example, Sav has gotten so hot and Claire has become such a fashion plate! And because the show airs telenovela style—there’s a new episode every night—there is absolutely no waiting to see how their new lives evolve.

But I promise there are other things I’m looking forward to this week—like the series premiere of “Entourage” and a new album from They Might Be Giants. After the jump, a rundown of this week’s television, movies, music, and more. Keep reading »

Miraculously, “Jersey Shore” Isn’t Hurting New Jersey’s Image

Relax, New Jersey-ites. Though they’ve tried their damnedest, the cast of “Jersey Shore” has not succeeded in making the Garden State look bad. When it comes to their opinions of NJ, a Fairleigh Dickinson University Public Mind poll of 711 adults released today could not find a statistical difference between people who watch “Jersey Shore” and people who don’t: 43 percent who’ve seen the show think NJ is great, while 41 who haven’t seen the show are also fans. See, the American public is not stupid. They know there is more to NJ than just Snooki and The Situation — like Princeton University, Bruce Springsteen, and, um, “The Sopranos.”

Last week I made a joke in the comments section on the post “22 Things We Never Thought We’d Do For A Man, Until We Did” and said I moved to NJ for a dude. That seems to have ruffled some Jersey feathers. I was just kidding. Even though I eventually moved, I am still a big Jersey fan. After the jump, five nice things I have to say about the state of New Jersey: Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Kate Monro, Author Of “The First Time: True Tales Of Virginity Lost & Found”

When a friend introduced me to the author Kate Monro over email, explaining she’d just published a book filled with virginity loss stories, I knew that I would love it, sight unseen. The First Time: True Tales Of Virginity Lost And Found (Including My Own) totally delivered! Monro, who used to work for the band Blur and for Dazed and Confused magazine, began collecting stories on a blog called The Virginity Project. For her first book, Monro collated vignettes from Brits and Americans, from grandpas to high school girls, who all reminisced about their first time with fondness, earnestness and occasional heartbreak. It may have been a long time since any of us has been a virgin, but if the bare humanity on display in The First Time is any indication, we could do well to revisit it.

Kate Monro lives in the UK, so we had to conduct our interview over email — but I’d like to imagine we chatted over cups of Earl Grey and some Tim Tams while staring off into the London fog. Our Q&A, which was edited for length and clarity, begins after the jump. Keep reading »

Listen: Italian Oral Sex Song, “I’m Horny” (NSFW)

My new favorite pop star? Italy‘s Gionny Scandal. What an artiste! His new song, “I’m Horny,” features a bevy of barely legal blondes sucking lollipops and being sprayed in the face with whipped cream while they sing a chorus about giving him a blowjob. Everyone’s mamma must be so proud! [Europopped] Keep reading »

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: Another Swig Of “True Blood”

Sure, last night’s episode of “True Blood” (SPOILER ALERT) felt mired in lengthy scenes featuring Jason and those horrible werepanthers. But still, there was plenty to enjoy, especially Eric in his wide-eyed, teenage-like amnesiac state. After the jump, the best, worst, and most WTF moments of the episode “I’m Alive and on Fire.” Keep reading »
