  • In defense of Hitler, by Tila Tequila

    December 10, 2013 | 9:52 am

    If your memory of C-list phenomenon Tila Tequila is hazy at best, the former star of the MTV reality show “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila” and, natch, a sex tape, is out to change that. Or — more likely — she’s simply gone off the deep end of a pool nestled deep within the...

  • What Miley Cyrus really wants is a spanking

    By Danielle Berrin

    August 29, 2013 | 1:13 pm

    Miley Cyrus really, really wants us to know something: she f----s.

    Her Me-So-Sexy show-and-tell at MTV’s Video Music Awards was the least sophisticated display of youthful sexual prowess in recent memory (and considering the venue, that’s saying A LOT).

    It did, however, provoke...

    If it's the girls know too much in this episode-- Allison takes her father's careful tracking of the Darach for evidence that he is one, Lydia decides to acknolwedge her power instead of denying it and discovers that she's a banshee, Jennifer, well, Jennifer is the Darach after...

  • Teen Wolf Recap: Visionary

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 23, 2013 | 9:46 am

    People who need to justify the public's sudden widespread interest in fictional supernatural creatures tend to cast them as metaphors: zombies are the stumbling hordes of viral infection and pandemic. Vampires are the simultaneous threat and promise of penetration, consumption,...

  • Teen Wolf Recap: Currents

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 16, 2013 | 2:36 pm

    Teen Wolf seems very determined to remind us that its characters-- no matter how smooth their skin or ripped their abs-- are still in high school. The first episode of the season opened with Scott studying for the PSATs; every week since has offered us a key word, first mentioned...

  • Teen Wolf: Motel California Recap

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 9, 2013 | 2:00 pm

    Teen Wolf has always had cinematic aspirations, but they've really come to the fore this season, which is replete with long shots sweeping across muted color palettes and eerie, empty vistas. The first episode featured a full-on Hitchcock homage as a flock of black birds invaded a...

  • Teen Wolf: Frayed Recap

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 2, 2013 | 3:17 pm

    The first thing you should know about me is that I've got incorrgibly lowbrow taste: I grew up in a golden age of teen movies and gross out comedy, somewhere between American Pie and Judd Apatow, after Sixteen Candles but just contemporary with its sucessors, Clueless through Mean...

  • Back to Back Jersey Shore Tests My Love Affair With Snooki

    By Ilana Angel

    September 30, 2011 | 6:50 pm

    I missed Jersey Shore last week so I just sat through 2 hours. Two hours of Jersey Shore makes me want to kill myself.  By kill myself of course I mean I want to kill one of them.  I would never do that for real. It would only keep them on TV longer.

    I have loved these kids since we...

  • Jersey Shore: Lesbians + Steroids + Fists = a Situation in Italy

    By Ilana Angel

    August 26, 2011 | 8:42 am

    This week starts with the Situation sending his whore home, immediately followed by Vinny sending his whore, the identical twin to Mike’s whore, home.  Vinny’s whore made out with Deena, then did Vinny, so it’s completely understandable that she stumbled out of the house and...

    By Ilana Angel

    August 4, 2011 | 9:29 pm

    You know it’s summer when the kids of Jersey Shore show up.  By kids of course I mean everyone but the Situation, who I am sure is 40.  The gang is heading to Italy and it’s going to be fabulous.  I’m thinking there won’t be a lot of grenades walking the streets of Italia.

    For more on Ezekiel’s vision of the dry bones:

    Dry Bones cartoons and the Dry Bones Project are called Dry Bones because of the 2600 years-old writings of the Biblical Prophet Ezekiel.
    Like a police sketch artist trying to portray what a witness is describing, the cartoonist has done his best to draw what Ezekiel claimed to have seen.
    This “Graphic Novel” is called: Listening to Ezekiel

  • Ratner not yet keen on “Conan”

    By Danielle Berrin

    November 14, 2008 | 1:16 am

    Thanks to a leak by producer Avi Lerner and premature reporting by the LA Times, the assumption that Brett Ratner would direct the “Conan” film franchise is just that—presumptuous and untrue.

    Sort of. Apparently, budget negotiations are still being hammered out and Ratner insists...

    First of all, I want to wish a blessed Ramadan to all my Muslim cousins. May your month of fasting and prayer bring you closer to the God we all share.
