I’m not particularly happy with Bryan Singer these days, though I’m not exactly sure why that is. Could it be because he’s a decidedly-overrated director who gets far more press than more-deserving filmmakers like, say, Alex Proyas? Could it be because his alleged Gaydar profile had that vaguely-unpleasant aroma of entitlement so common among a certain class of Hollywood […]


So, following the release of the spiffy, two-disc, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls DVD, I was reminiscing about my parents' reaction to the film. Now, first some background: Mom and Dad have never been hip and have never pretended to be hip. My parents have always lived in an irony-free zone, so any enjoyment of Jacqueline Susann's […]


Yes, chix do dig bstewart. Especially ginormous-breasted, wee, pornstar chix. Summer Sinn* visits the office, frightens all of the het guys, mesmerizes with a Bahston accent thicker than that of a certain obnoxious — and painfully overexposed — former Surviving Racer and ultimately has no effect whatsoever on my Kinsey number.

Not just different-gay but oh, yeah, got-to-get-me-some-of-that-mansex-gay. I can […]


If it was possible to musically capture an idea, a feeling, a moment so purely blissful that you thought "I don't ever want this to end, ever," then the Scottish brothers who make up Boards of Canada would surely be the architects of such music. And, in fact, it is possible and they totally did […]

Dude, America is so fucking awesome! I mean, within days of the international media coverage of Canada's arrest of a gaggle of alleged terrorists in our midst, our mighty neighbour to the south manages to leave us in their dust by killing, like, the second-evillest man alive*.  I mean, how cool is that? They couldn't find al-Zarqawi for years, […]
