The hotel maid who accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault was tape recorded on the phone within a day of the attack telling a man in prison, something like “Don’t worry, this guy has a lot of money. I know what I’m doing,” according to a source who spoke to The New York Times. This comes on top of this revelation, which piggy-bagged off yesterday’s bombshell that she had been dishonest about details in her asylum application from Guinea, including a gang rape. The accuser also had several shady deposits into her bank account, totaling near $100,000, from various men.
But wait, there’s more: The New York Post headline this morning is “DSK MAID A HOOKER.” Sources tell the tabloid the accuser works as a prostitute in the hotel, cleaning rooms but also sleeping with guests. The paper quoted a source “close to the investigation” who said, “There is information . . . of her getting extraordinary tips, if you know what I mean. And it’s not for bringing extra f**king towels.” It should be noted, however, that the New York Times has not reported that the accuser is a prostitute, only the Post. Keep reading »

Peep show glasses — mugs and glasses that have stripping models on the side — have been around since the 1940s. In 1941, a company called Meyercord created and patented the technology that allows the white clothes to disappear when moistened. Most of the time — like, 99 percent — the images were of sexy, scantily clad women, but we loooooove this ’70s mustachioed beefcake on the right. Have a tall, frosty glass of this guy, please.

I’ve been obsessing about where and when I would have my first close encounter of the third kind since middle school. My teacher, Mr. Vice, was a little bit of an alien conspiracy theorist. His bulletin boards were covered with clippings from the National Enquirer, which at the time, mostly did articles about Oprah being fat and alien/Bigfoot/Loch Ness Monster sightings. He spent our four hours a week together showing us an array of videos — “Aliens and the Mayans,” “The Truth About Roswell,” Aliens in Ancient Egypt,” “Crop Circles: An Extraterrestrial Playground.” When I started sleeping on my parent’s floor in the middle of seventh grade (I convinced myself that our back yard doubled as a UFO landing strip, I mean we did live in Arizona) they pulled me out of the gifted program. I tried to push images of flying saucer abductions out of my mind as I drifted off to sleep. My parents told me it would never happen, that Mr. Vice was a lunatic. Maybe Mr. Vice wasn’t crazy, maybe he was a man before his time, or even an alien himself sent to prepare us for his race’s arrival. Keep reading »
