My first time…

Men, Whisky & “Hand-Shake Maintenance”

When I received the invite to the Compass Box launch event, there was not a moment’s hesitation before I wrote back to confirm my attendance. Free whiskey? Yes, please. And can I get some in a go-cup as well? (That a little bit of the New Orleans coming out in me… sorry.) Little did I realize that the venue for this launch was a fashionable (real or aspiring) man’s wet dream: Trum... More...

The Next Step: Weeds Get Vajazzled.

Weeds get Vajazzled, and MILF Weed reigns supreme.

To start the night off right, I want to treat you to another high-light from seasons past: the MILF-weed song. “I killed Pilar with a croquet-mallet by the pool.” Sort of like Col. Mustard in the library with the candlestick. How do you make hash. OMG the opening Weeds image is a VAJAZZLING!! photo via Fleshbot I’m glad someone’s speaking truth here, Nancy never was a very...

I Need a Friend with Benjamins Now and Again…

WEEDS: A knife-fight in a salmon smokehouse? I want to hear that story.

Weeds Season 5: Episode 2. I can’t help myself, need to share my thoughts. While packing up the house in Ren Mar, Nancy neglected to pull out the cash stashed behind the jukebox. They even had a shot of the jukebox in the background at one point… and it was in the last or second to last episode of the last season that she made out a new will with her lawyer, Dean. Not that such over... More...

The Green is back: “Weeds” Season 6 Premiere!

*Spoiler Alert!!

It would hard to express my excitement at the return of Weeds for season 6. In anticipation of this blessed event, I have rewatched the series from the beginning. I have to say, the masturbation monologue is still one of the best moments in the series. Quick summary, for those who have been living under a rock for the past few years: man dies, widow (Nancy Botwin played by Mary Louise Parker) turn... More...

The Bizarre New iPhone 4 Ad Campaign

Vlogging = Chatting for the Next Generation.

Has anyone else noticed how both of the ads showing for the iPhone 4 are about propagation? The most frequent ad has a woman of unclear ethnicity informing her partner (husband?) that he’s going to be a father. Alternately, there’s an ad where a black grandfather–hoary beard and all–is informed of his grandchild’s birth (where three-quarters of the reverse-shot is of t... More...

When Relationship Bloggers meet

(by accident, on OK Cupid)

What happens when two people who blog about sex/dating/relationships meet on that holy of holies, OK Cupid? Well, I’m not quite sure yet. Neither of us knew that the other blogged, but she wrote to compliment one of my favorite movies, the Devil’s Backbone by Guillermo del Toro. She said I seemed benign (her mistake), which apparently made me a good candidate for a first internet dati... More...

She Keeps Bees

Brooklyn’s New Seed

While at the fundraiser for Imaginary Mothers (which you clearly missed), I seriously contemplated by 31-year rule against speaking to strangers while in public venues. Seriously… hot chick, sitting behind me, seemingly alone… It was a good thing I didn’t, because it turned out she has a boy. How did I figure this out? Because it turns out she was the frontwoman for the headline act ... More...

How To: Not Get Laid

Herpe-rific pick-up line of the century.

A friend texts me the other evening. “Look good tonight. I want you to meet my friend.” What is she talking about? Don’t I always look good? That concern aside, my friend (let’s call her A) introduces me to B that night, while at a live show on the LES. Apparently, both B and I are in need of getting laid… me, because my girlfriend and I broke up, and I need to get ... More...
