The Many Feuds Of David Letterman

As you know, David Letterman’s been getting a lot of flack for opening up his trap about Sarah Palin and her family. He won’t shut up about it. She won’t shut up about it. And obviously we can’t shut up about it. So after the jump, I’d like to take you on a trip down memory lane to reminisce about some older Letterman feuds that people also couldn’t shut up about.

Frowny Face: Women Are Way More Bummed Than We Were Thirty Years Ago

A new study conducted by the National Bureau of Economic Research and the University of Pennsylvania and presented by economists Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers, shows that both sex’s happiness levels have decreased over the past few decades, but women’s “subjective well-being” has declined “absolutely” and in relation to men. This is only a big deal because the same study was done in the 1970s and women reported higher levels of happiness than they do today! Is it because they were stoned out of their minds? Is it because feminism never really worked out? The research study didn’t come up with any conclusions but had loads of hypotheses…but not as many that have come up since it was released last month! Read on to hear the theories. Keep reading »

The Boob Tube: Hot Weekend TV For June 13-14th 2009

“True Blood” is finally back, y’all and I have to say it’s been a looong six months. I re-watched most of season one recently, which didn’t help my desire to see my favorite vampire and waitress steam up the small screen. So I decided to read the first Sookie Stackhouse novel Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris, but that didn’t help either. I feel sorry for anyone who is a fan of this show, but hasn’t read the books because they’re much more sexual and Bill Compton is more carnal. If you thought the f**k fest in the dirt from season one was stimulating, you haven’t read anything yet. Sookie and Bill have way more sex scenes in the novels, and when I read Bill saying, “May I enter you?” and the time when they climaxed together when he bit her…Woo! I thought I was right there. (And yes, both of my hands are on my keyboard.) My sex life is virtually non-existent right now. So I figure I can read the novels during the week to hold me over until Sunday when new “True Blood” episodes air on HBO at 9 pm. And for those of you that haven’t watched or read about Sookie and Bill’s relationship, please realize it’s not all about sex, but is a great story too.

Oh yeah, and check out this weekend’s TV schedule after the jump. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Imagine That,” “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3,” “Food, Inc.,” & “Moon”

Okay, so I just peeped weather.com and apparently every single state is cloudy this weekend. No, seriously. Don’t even bother looking out the window. Just get in your Prius and drive to the movie theater. What’s even opening this weekend? Funny you should ask because Eddie Murphy’s playing a loony (again) in “Imagine That,” John Travolta is a bad ass in “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3,” your food is killing you, if you’re curious how, then watch “Food, Inc.,” and if you’ve ever been isolated to the point of insanity, then “Moon” might push you back over the edge. And if these movies sound crappy, there’s always last week’s flicks! Keep reading »

  • A nine-year old girl from Congo detailed being gang raped by Congolese soldiers on her way home from school during an interview with photographer and freelance journalist Sherrlyn Borkgren. She explained that “two soldiers nabbed her, put a bag over her head and pulled her into the bushes.” The young girl is just one of 200,000 girls who are estimated to have been raped in Congo over the last 12 years.

  • A woman described as a “sex–obsessed slob” did nothing to stop her son from being tortured and murdered right in front of her. The mother, Tracy Connelly, her “sadistic neo-Nazi” lover, and his cocaine addict and convicted arsonist brother had abused her toddler, Peter, for months leading up to his murder. The boy was taught to give the Nazi salute every time Connelly’s lover walked into the room, and to refer to him as Hitler. After his death, Peter was discovered with a snapped spine and eight broken ribs. [ target="new">Daily Mail]

    New Breastlight Device Detects Lumps At Home

    Confession: each time I go to the gyno and she shows me how to do a breast self-exam, I stupidly smile and nod my head and she talks and prods my boob, knowing I have no clue what she’s really feeling. I then go home, fondle my own breasts and end up in frustration because (surprise!) they’re lumpy all over! It makes me feel like a bad woman who is not “in touch with her body” to admit that I don’t know what to think of those “normal” lumps. My doctor even once discovered what turned out to be a benign lump, and even then it didn’t feel distinctive. To help solve these problem, there’s now Breastlight, a wand that essentially lets you see what’s going on inside your chest. Take the device into a dark room, apply the lubricant to your breast, and hold Breastlight under your boob to light it up in red hue, highlighting veins and any other abnormalities. It’s not meant to replace mammograms, but at least it will help morons like myself know when something isn’t right. [Uk.breastlight.com] Keep reading »

    Why Is The Face Of Abortion Always A Woman’s?

    Abortion unexpectedly plunged back into the news in recent weeks with the murder of Dr. George Tiller, who performed late-term abortions in Wichita, Kansas.

    Everyone but the most far right extremists has condemned the killing and much of the media has focused on how this act of domestic terrorism is truly deplorable. But clinic violence, awful as it is, occurs rarely compared to the legislative assaults against reproductive rights. So in response, Maureen Tkacik (formerly Moe of Jezebel and Gawker) has written a piece for Lemondrop about the things we never mention about when we discuss about abortion—but probably should.
