Don't Forget the Derby!

By Alethea, published on Oct 19, 2006

In the days of the Golden Hollywood era, the Brown Derby was the place to be. The Derby started as a cute little restaurant in Hollywood shaped like a derby hat. It soon spread to 3 other locations throughout Hollywood, all of which were bombarded with old time movie stars, swing dancers and night-clubbers. Carole Lombard, Clark Gable, and Lucille Ball were some of the faces you might have seen frequenting these hot spots. Sadly however, to date there is only one Derby left as the rest have been turned into malls, parking lots or offices. The last of the original Derbies stands on Los... (more)

Blue Humans of the Future Evolve into Whatever

By Charles Harmison, published on Oct 18, 2006

...Joy), it is from him that the darker scenarios of the future derive. I don’t want to give too much away but in the section, which focuses on him called “The Hell Scenario” there is a particularly amusing possibility put forth. Amusing that is if you found the last zombie movie to be too easy on the humans. We have all heard of nanobots and the benefits that they could bring everything from medicine to window cleaner. Well there is an incredibly terrible possibility that once we turn the first one on it will make another of itself and continue to do so until it... (more)

Menu of Singledum

By Lara E. Seltzer, published on Oct 17, 2006

...So the answer should be to find my soul mate, right? One problem: meeting men that are “dateable” is a huge challenge, especially in Los Angeles. The odds automatically tip out of my favor since I’m not six feet tall and weigh over 100 pounds, looking nothing like a movie star. Heck, I’m no Jennifer Aniston. When you’re looking within a male population trying to chase models, what’s left are slim pickings. But you can’t give up. That’s unthinkable. I don’t want to become that strange dog lady. The idea of cramping... (more)

A Wonderful Director at His Best

By A. A. Abrahami, published on Oct 15, 2006

...(especially Depp, whose range and creativity is generally overlooked by Hollywood…btw, he should have received the Oscar for this one…I do believe he was nominated, or was that a Golden Globe?...I’ll imdb it later). And last but not least, my favorite lines, most of which are articulated by Bill Murray as the flamboyant Bunny Breckinridge: “How do you do it? How do you get all your friends to get baptized just so you can make a monster movie?” to which Edward D. Wood, Jr. responds “it's not a monster movie...it’s a supernatural thriller!”  (more)

Monorail To Tie Together L.A.'s Gems

By dodgerjon, published on Oct 11, 2006

...of L.A.'s more interesting -- but less-utilized -- cultural and entertainment venues. Specifically, we'd like to see an above-ground monorail built that would connect the L.A. Coliseum/ Natural History Museums to downtown's Broadway Street (home of the Million Dollar, Los Angeles and Orpheum movie palaces). Another spur could connect with the Convention Center (and the Staples Center Arena). Later extensions might link with the Music Center... LAX... or even Dodger Stadium. Eventually the whole project would be a way of uniting all of L.A.'s fun and interesting landmarks. L.A.'s... (more)

The Pitt family in India

By Ariel, published on Oct 8, 2006

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie are currently in India to shoot a movie about the slain journalist Daniel Pearl, killed in February 2002 by a terrorist group in Pakistan. The most glamorous couple of Hollywood isn't exactly incognito in India where they are constantly followed by a swarm of bodyguards protecting the stars from paparazzi. On Saturday, one of Brangelina's bodyguards manhandled a journalist who refused to put down his camera. The journalist later reported to the press: "He said if I took his pictures he would kill me", "I couldn't breathe. He had his fingers on my windpipe and he knew... (more)

Please, Try Not to Judge....

By C. Reagan, published on Oct 6, 2006

...telemarketing ( at two different companies), Save-a-Lot Grocery Stores (they wouldn't let me off for Homecoming), a liquor store stock-boy, Wal-Mart, K-mart ( I quit on the day after Thanksgiving, may god save my soul), and eventually, when I was a senior, a manager of the local two -screen movie theater. In addition, I did volunteer work at the local hospital. You may remember these young adults being called "Candy Stripers", much to my dismay, they did away with that title years ago. I was given the label "Jr. Volunteer" and just got a red polo shirt, no cool striped pants. Soon... (more)

Jesus Camp the Movie “What Bible Are They Reading?"

By Stephanie Michele, published on Oct 6, 2006

...because I would not want to live in a world where love was intangible. It is because of love that I know Jesus and proudly call myself a Christian. It is also because of love, that my heart was filled with pain upon learning about Pastor Becky Fischer's camp for children that is featured in the movie Jesus Camp. I do not understand why Evangelical Christians choice to teach grown adults much less innocent children about Christ through "fear and brimstone" methods. There is enough fear in this world, it is love that we need to learn more about. No credible child therapist would tell a... (more)

Star’s Performance Gets Oscar Buzz

By Josh Marks, published on Oct 1, 2006

...who is fascinated by Scotland and infatuated with Garrigan, convinces him to become his personal doctor. Soon Garrigan is living in the lap of luxury, but he slowly starts to realize the true nature of Amin and the depth of his brutality, even becoming unknowingly complicit in murder. The movie is at its best when the camera focuses on the interactions between Amin and Garrigan. It is interesting to watch their relationship progress and slowly start to unravel as Amin becomes more and more paranoid and violent. When the storyline strays from the focus on Whittaker’s forceful... (more)

..."moustache" he leaves on the faces of his sexual partners after they perform oral sex on him. The comic website was hosted for a short period of time by Geocities. The Dirty Sanchez is a popular turn of phrase, appearing in a variety of pop culture references including the name of a bar in the movie Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. The bar's mascot was an apparently hispanic woman with a moustache. Another popular reference is in The Aristocrats joke. Former Saved by the Bell star Dustin Diamond is rumored to demonstrate a Dirty Sanchez in his sex tape, titled "Saved by the Smell." I... (more)
