Continuing with the masturbation theme, I had this Cyndi Lauper song in mind because she was on WWE Raw a few weeks back with Wendi Richter presenting The One Man Southern Rock Band (that’s an actual wrestler, I’m not making that shit up) with a gold record, basically for being a jerk off. I was going to embed the original video for the song, and point out that Wendi Richter is the waitress with the big earrings, you can spot Captain Lou Albano in rollers, and the guy that plays the biker/love interest is Dave Wolff, who was Lauper’s producer at the time, but I can’t find jack shit about him on the internet, except this old clip of Roddy Piper power slamming him after presenting Captain Lou with a gold record and kicking Cyndi in the face (which is the scenario Lauper’s recent WWE appearance was referencing).

Composed by Tony Hatch and original recorded by Petula Clark, Downtown has proven to be an enduring classic, covered by myriad artists in various genres and popping up repeatedly in popular films and television programs. The video embedded here is of Emma Bunton‘s version, which was the Official Charity Song for the BBC’s Children in Need a few years back. Judging the video, Emma Bunton must have thought they needed erections. I chose this version because, well, I already mentioned Emma Bunton and erections; need I say more? Happy Saturday!
A few months ago I worked on a 10 minute pilot sample for a series called Frog Kissers, the story of four women in New York City who reason that in order to find a prince you have to kiss a lot of frogs, and make a pact to kiss 100 men over the course of a year to find their prince(s). I have a brief role as one of the “frogs.” Frog Kissers is created by Debra Kirschner, who also wrote and directed the pilot sample; she also produced with Sherese Robinson.
The pilot sample of Frog Kissers is screening at this year’s International TV Festival/PopCon in Los Angeles, California. I’ll be attending the Fest from July 5-8, so if you happen to be in L.A., be sure to come check out the screening and stop by to say, “What’s up?” to me in person. Debra and Sherese are both friendly people, so come by and say, “Hi!” to them too.
We’d love to have a good crowd at the screening, so if you can’t make it, please spread the word to anyone you know who may be able and interested in attending. Here’s the trailer (look fast for my shiny forehead around the 1:02 mark):
Hope to see you there!
UPDATE (6/26/2012): Debra has created a Facebook event for the Frog Kissers screening for those of you who would like to RSVP — smile
A short movie starring me. For more info, check the Internet Movie Database.
Ever since John From Cincinnati premiered, I’ve been getting hits from folks searching for "John From Cincinnati lesbian." I assume they’re looking for information on tomboy surfer Keala Kennelly, who plays tomboy surfer Kai on the show. As far as I know, neither of them (Keala or Kai) are lesbians, but I could be wrong. In any case, if you’re one of those folks intrigued by Keala, check out her profiles at lat34.com and Surfer Magazine, then check out this video of her in action, then come back here to watch the six minute interview with her below (courtesy of HBO).
I’m going to talk about the first episode of Curl Girls The Series, so you might want to take 30 seconds and watch this video to get everyone’s names straight; alternatively, you can refer back to the video as you read the article.
So Die Hard 4 is rated PG-13 after all. I don’t want to go, and don’t give me, “Well, I like that it’s PG-13, ‘cuz now I can see it, ‘cuz my parents are sooooo lame they won’t let me see R! PG-13 can still rock!” Fuck you, you were still swimming around in your father’s balls when Die Hard With A Vengeance was in theaters. Why should I give a fuck whether or not you can get in to see the new one? What do you know anyway? You just said you’ve never seen an R rated movie! That being said, that fact that it’s PG-13 is the least of the reasons I’m no longer interested. The best shit I’ve seen in years is Mr. Bean’s Holiday and that’s rated G. Of course, there will eventually be an unrated release of Die Hard 4, maybe by then I’ll want to see it. Before I continue, I just want to say that frankly, if a PG-13 rating for Die Hard 4 is your biggest concern in life and you’re over the age of 12, you just might be a fucking mope. Also, you have your head up your ass if a movie’s parental advisory rating is your primary barometer for the potiential quality of said film. I have a ton of reasons why Die Hard 4 looks like hardcore junk to me. The PG-13 is just the final nail in the coffin.

I love surfing. Not that I can. I can’t even swim, but I ever since I was a kid, I have had a deep romantic love of surfing. If you would have asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have answered, "Gerry Lopez!" Of course, I was the only one in my hometown who gave a shit about surfing. Historically, in fact, most of America doesn’t seem to take it seriously as a sport, considering how often surf competitions are broadcast on network television, which is never. Well, I think I remember seeing it on ABC’s Wide World of Sports once, but that was like, 30 years ago, so maybe I’m remembering it wrong. Surfing may be coming into it’s own in the States, though, if the current crop of surfing related entertainment hitting movie theaters and television screens these days catches on. Here’s my guide to the surf related entertainment out now, and what will be out in the next few months.
I just got home and all day, every news paper I saw had Lindsay Lohan on the front cover. You already know the story, I’m sure, she crashed her car and got arrested for a DUI, then got her picture taken passed out and vomiting the day after she was released. All the papers critisized her for getting high/drunk so soon after getting out of the hospital. So, why does everyone assume she’s high/drunk in those photos? You know what happens when you do a shit load of drugs and booze on a daily basis for a long time and then one day you don’t do that same shit load of drugs and booze?
