Very Mary Kate: An Interview

I first came across the web series “Very Mary Kate” via Alison’s facebook wall. Little did I know what I was in for…and just how obsessed I would become. Series producer, director, writer, and all-around star Ellaine Carroll does an incredible job capturing the essence of basket-casedom that is Mary Kate Olsen, twice a week, in thirty second web clips. Get a taste, below!

Incredible, no?

Comment Poll: Slow Motion Decapitation

If there is anything I love more than slow motion, it is slow motion blood.

Which one do you think is better? Does underwater decapitation count as slow motion? Do I suffer from Ong Bak 2 a la Eli Roth syndrome? Brb while I go apply a fresh coat of lipgloss, soon to be followed by a WWE smackdown.

I don’t care if he’s dead. That doesn’t make him any less sexy.
Look at that thoughtful jawline!

Some Lady Talk

I’ve long been infuriated by Always telling me to “have a happy period”, and I know I’m not alone.  It’s about time SOMEONE in marketing figured out that ladies don’t like being told how they should feel about enduring the Red Vadge of Courage.  While I have to roll my eyes at networks refusing to let them use the word “vagina” in the spot, it’s a relief to see such a frank commercial.

Of course, it still boils down to another marketing ploy.  We’re supposed to think, “Man, Kotex really gets me, as a clever, knowing, twentysomething female.”  It’s hard for me to worry too much about that, though.  Advertising is always, inevitably going to be a slimy and manipulative.  At worst, this kind of manipulation is slightly more honest than the usual.   And at best, seeing this perspective in commercials might help people realize that ladybits aren’t meant to be feared- that they aren’t so terrifying the devil himself runs away (uhh, somewhat NSFW).   Maybe hoping that a tampon commercial inspires social change is a little over optimistic, but it’s a start, right?
