Ads You WON’T See During The Superbowl

The first has already gotten a lot of attention, because that’s what it was designed to do.  PETA, in their phenomenally retarded ongoing efforts to prove than any publicity is good publicity, shot this dumb, pandering spot to prove- what?

Skins, “Series” 3

First, an announcement: Skins is now on iTunes people. Our lifelong (cough*two-year*cough) dream of Skins coming to America has officially come true. You can buy “Series'” (what we refer to as a “Season”) 1 and 2 on iTunes and wallow in the dirty British teendom of this show. So what if you’re (I’m) 22!? At least it’s not Gossip Girl. This is your chance to revel in Dev Patel’s pre-Slumdog-fame crustache, and ogle the kid from About A Boy. Don’t take that chance for granted.

Lady Product Review: The Kitchen-Aid Mixer

Okay so this isn’t specifically a “lady product” in the traditional sense, meaning, something that goes in or near your vagina. But, this is a product primarily used by ladies. Not that I’m saying men can’t or shouldn’t use a Kitchen-Aid Mixer, in fact, I’d like to see more men mixing things and making cakes and dinners instead of sitting in my living room, playing FIFA 09 online on the Xbox 360 I bought him and yelling into his headset. What? I mean… gender equality, yeah…

So Stupid It’s Offensive

Oreo Cakesters: What the fuck were you thinking? In creating this new version through the whole 100 calorie pack craze, Oreo Cakesters have not only lost the integrity of their product, but of their entire marketing plan. How? By treating women like fucking retards, that’s how.

American Dance Conquers Bollywood

Hi peanuts (this one’s for Alison),

The entire time I was in India, I had pretty bad jet lag (and still do for that matter).

It’s night there when it is day here and vice versa, so you can probably understand why I could only sleep  for 2 hours, on and off,  during the night.

Also, the malaria medication I was taking (and still am taking) was making my feel pretty paranoid. I’m reluctant to say that I had my first hallucination in Bangalore.

In any event, during one of those stop and start hours of wakefulness, I turned on the TV and what was playing: none other than the American hit “10 Things I Hate About You” starring Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles. At this moment, I was feeling a little out of sorts in such a contrasting landscape and culture but this particular scene put me right at home in the context of  laugh out loud Bollywood movies.

Here, my friends, is a clip from the best table top dance, ever:

Shepard Fairey

Responsible for the Andre the Giant “Obey” stickers (after the jump) Shepard Fairey has definitely put his stamp on America. While some claim that he just rips off previous pop-art advertisements, his new interpretations are undoubtedly catchy and effective. Plus, he’s a babe.

The Curious Case of Thirteen Damn Oscar Nominations

Brad and CateI have to get this off my chest.  It’s hard, because a lot of people found this film moving and beautiful, so I feel like kind of a Grinch.  It has to be said, though.  The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is goddamn terrible.  It is shallow and vain and cloying and dumb.  It is like Forrest Gump and The Notebook rolled into one bloated, overly-sentimental, steaming pile of poo. (more…)
