The Invasion Of Pink Board Games

I like pink. Exhibit A: my bubble gum-colored toe nail polish. Exhibit B: my favorite pink mug. But even I am a taken aback by the onslaught of board games lately that have gotten girly, pinkified makeovers. Take, for example, Designer’s Edition Scrabble, which comes in a powder pink box complete with the word F-A-S-H-I-O-N spelled out on the cover. The Toys ‘R’ Us website says it has “style, taste and elegant accessories like a pastel rotating gameboard, pearlescent letter tiles and embroidered fabric pouch. All the fashionable game pieces are designed with a woman in mind, but with the same Scrabble challenge you know and love.” I don’t care if the letters are pearlized. In Scrabble, the only thing I notice is the look on your face when I beat your ass with a killer seven-letter word like X-I-P-H-O-I-D.

Scrabble isn’t the only classic game that’s been pinkified in an attempt to lure in “girly” consumers. Check out the others after the jump. Keep reading »

TSA Porn Or Security Measure?

After 9/11, airports became a place where every traveler is a terror suspect. In an effort to combat terror threats, some airports have turned into virtual high-tech strip joints. You might not have realized it, but the Transportation Security Administration has been testing 40 “whole-body imaging” machines at 19 airports. Critics say the machines, which cost a whopping $170,000, perform a “virtual strip search” and produce “naked” pictures of travelers. Now, protestors have started a national campaign to suspend use of the technology until privacy safeguards are set. “We don’t have the policy to hold [the TSA] to what they say. They’re writing their own rule book at this point,” said Lillie Coney, associate director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center. Keep reading »

Kris Allen Beats Adam Lambert For The Title of “American Idol”

I don’t think I’ve seen America so wound up over the results of an election since November. In case you live under a rock, Kris Allen, the Jack Johnson-type from Arkansas, beat out glam-rocker Adam Lambert from San Diego for the title of “American Idol” last night. The star-studded season finale, which included performances by Cyndi Lauper, KISS, Queen, and a host of other music legends, ran over two hours. “It feels good,” Kris replied when Ryan asked how it felt to win, “but Adam deserves this.” If Twitter-verse is any indication, a lot of America agrees with him.

Skip This Flick: Lars Von Trier’s “Antichrist”

If you’re mid-breakfast, you might want to skip this post. One of the films that debuted at this week’s Cannes Film Festival is “Antichrist,” the latest from director Lars Von Trier. Since the screening yesterday, everyone has been talking about how the movie crosses the line of what’s appropriate for “mainstream” cinema. Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg and Willem Dafoe, the film is about a couple who, while mourning the death of their young son, mutilate each other in vile, graphic, despicable ways.

“Gainsbourg hits Dafoe so hard in the testicles with a plank of wood that he lapses into a coma. He ejaculates blood when she masturbates him. She drills a hole through his leg before tying him to a rock. But the scene that has caused the most disquiet is the close-up of Gainsbourg’s character cutting off her clitoris with a rusty pair of scissors.”
