"Story of O, the Series"
Story of O, the Series (1992 TV series) episode II has O being indoctrinated into the routine at the chateau. It again features lots of nudity from Claudia Cepeda. There are also unidentified actresses exposing everything, which I will cover all at once. This episode was just as slow and dry as the first, although I am beginning to appreciate the characterization of the men, as they seem to have a sadistic streak, whereas the men in the original O seemed more like they were playing at being dominant. I heard from other imagers that they started this series and gave up somewhere in the middle of episode II out of boredom, so I suppose I will get through them all, just so we have it covered and archived. Who knows, it may pick up steam once O is out of the chateau. It is still a C-.
L'Ennui (1998) I stupidly thought that the title, which means boredom, had something to do with the plot in this French film. Turns out, it is a spot-on critique of the film itself. Charles Berling is a professor of Philosophy who is recently divorced, and in mid-life crisis. An artist friend dies while having sex with a young woman, Sophie Guillemin. Berling meets her, discovers that this 17 year old was doing the nasty for two years several times a day with his friend, and takes up where his friend left off. He goes on sabbatical, and devotes full time to this girl. Even though he is not oblivious to the fact that she is not going to win beauty contests, and that they have very energetic sex, but no emotional contact or intellectual discussion, he becomes totally obsessed with her, and insanely jealous. Turns out she is also sleeping with a friend her own age.
That is pretty much the plot. She is emotionless and self-serving, and he is neurotic. She is happy with a purely physical relationship, he wants a soul-mate, and wants to posses her completely. Free access to her body is not enough for him. IMDB readers say 6.5 of 10 and none of the major critics seem to have seen it. Sophie Guillemin shows all 3 Bs numerous times in very brutal sex scenes (he uses her like his pecker is a tool of torture) which are pretty much a total turn-off. In short, it was a very long two hours. The transfer was weak, indoor scenes were under-lit, and outdoor scenes were so over-exposed most of the color was gone. It was also full of motion blur, and much of it was out of focus. The subtitles are not optional, and are not very well translated. E-.

I am feeling a bit under the weather today. I did look at the last of
Tuesday's new releases, but it proved fruitless for nudity.
Two offbeat comedies:
Life Without Dick
(new to DVD) is about a hit man who has never killed anyone. He just wanted to
get promoted out of the mob's accounting department. Stars Sarah Jessica Parker
and Harry Connick Junior
(new to DVD), although straight to video, is a truly odd and compelling black
comedy. I don't usually like hipper-than-thou movies, but I really got into
when I saw Tuna's review of The Big Easy, I
went back to re-watch this sexy, atmospheric film about corruption in the New
Orleans police force, and I was delighted with the way it screws around with
the genre cliches. And I think Ellen Barkin is sexy as hell.
The following are the latest movie reviews available at scoopy.com.
- The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded
into thinking it includes humor.
- If there is a white asterisk, it means that I inexplicably determined
there might be something of interest.
- A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or
Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or somebody else besides me)
- If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.
We got eight babes today, all of them from Bikini Carwash Company. Figured I would just bite the bullet and get all the collages ready rather than edit and post a couple at a time.
So who do we have for the audience, Johnny? Kristi Ducati, of course.
The end of an era: no more Kristi. The first collage has her being groped and raises the age-old question: is more than a handful a waste? Collages two and three have her dancing around in an automated
carwash, four has her rocking and rolling again with some miserable sod who used up all the luck he had coming to him by starring in this movie, and with five we're back in the car wash with two other principals in this cinematic achievement, Sara Suzanne Brown and Neriah Davis.
- Kristi Ducati
Segue to Neriah Davis. IMDB has her making this movie when she was 19, two years before she either grew some serious carbohooters or visited one of Beverly Hills' 40 thousand plastic surgeons AND then became a monthly Hefmate-type person. In these collages we have Neriah showing off
her impressive rumpus and a small but right attractive pair. Collage #2 has Kristi in the near background, taking off her top. The last collage is of Neriah and Sara Suzanne.
- Neriah Davis
Which brings us to the lovely Ms. Brown. Sara Suzanne Brown was the most successful of the babes to appear in BCC; went on to do several more movies, and I think she did the nekkid routine in them all. She enjoys the most exposure in and around the carwash, so we have ten... count 'em, ten... collages of her in some state of undress. You see her running around topless for just about every reason you can imagine, you get several good looks at her caboose and in one collage you get the view that should have
been in Cool Hand Luke but wasn't.
So, Kristi, Neriah and Sara all did more movies. But the women with the most movies to there credit were Jennifer Irwin and Landon Hall. Landon's name you probably recognize, although her face and body you may not. A lot of bucks spent on the face and chassis. Jennifer Irwin you may not know, but she made a few dozen movies of the adult variety, under the name of Missy Warner. Missy/Jennifer had an exuberant body.
So that's it, sports fans. Just about every damn frame of Bikini Carwash Company that Tuna sent my way, all dressed up in nice, neat packages. Gotta do something like this again sometime.
And then we get to the babes who either started and ended their careers in Hollywood right here or made the sequel to BCC, aptly titled Bikini Carwash Company 2, and then disappeared from sight. These include Rikki Brando and Kimberly Bee, both of whom saw reasonable exposure and the almost anonymous Brooke Lynn Page. She said very little if anything in this movie, stood around a lot with a camera and got all topless and stuff in only one verrrry brief scene. Here it is.
Today's "Babe in Bondage" is Jewell Marceau, who is somewhat of a star in bondage films. Here she is being tormented in the recent bondage flick "Captured". Safe to say about every part of her body is exposed.

Two stories from IMDB News' new "Methinks They Doth Complain Too Much" Dept...
Michael Douglas: Movie Sex Is Hard
Hollywood star Michael Douglas is famous for steamy movie love making
scenes - but the veteran actor confesses film sex is no fun. Douglas has
famously peeled off for romps in Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct - but
he insists that on screen love scenes are not as raunchy as they look. Of
his renowned sexy tussle with Sharon Stone in 1992 flick Basic Instinct, he
says, "The 'F*** of the Century' was pretty exhausting. Sex is hard to do
in the cinema. Audiences can understand sex so it's more difficult to pull
off. Everyone is a judge. It took a long time and we were tired, and we
were beat up because the scene had an intensity level the equal of a fight
scene or an action scene. It was filmed over five, six days and I was
exhausted. We got very sore as a result of being in positions of that might
look good but are not easy to hold."
Ben Chaplin's Naked Nightmare With Nicole Kidman
British actor Ben Chaplin hated the nude scenes he had to do with Nicole
Kidman for their new movie Birthday Girl - because he just couldn't shake
his embarrassment. While many men would do anything to romp naked with the
Australian redhead, Chaplin, 31, says playing Kidman's love interest on
film was a nerve-wracking nightmare. He explains, "It's truly awful doing
these love scenes, because I'm very prone to getting embarrassed. We were
just sitting around for days, sort of naked. Between takes, Nicole and I
would look at each other and say the most God- awful, stupid things like,
'Can you believe this weather?' 'Do you think they'll serve the good fish
for lunch?' It's almost like being in a doctor's office. You can't wait
until it's over, even if it is Nicole Kidman across a bed from you."
Also from IMDB News. Buffy is marrying Freddie Prinze Jr. Guess she's never seen any of his movies...
Sarah Michelle Gellar's Wedding To Get Hollywood Direction
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. have asked Hollywood director
Adam Shankman to conduct their marriage ceremony later this year. Shankman,
who helmed The Wedding Planner, was asked by the couple to officiate at a
non-denominational service. Shankman plans to get ordained via an internet
site that requires only names and addresses in order to qualify for his
Shankman, a longtime pal of the glamorous duo, says he was
at dinner with the happy couple when they shocked him by asking, "Would you
like to do the honour of marrying us?" The director says he nearly choked
on his food, explaining, "It's a crazy honor."
Here's a story that makes me sorry I don't force myself to listen to PBS more often. From the NY Post...
NPR JOCK SHOCK
By MICHAEL STARR
February 6, 2002 -- THE quiet and high-minded National Public Radio
airwaves were shattered earlier this week by a name-calling confrontation
between - of all people - tongue-waggling KISS frontman Gene Simmons and
soft-spoken interviewer Terry Gross.
Simmons, a guest on Gross's show, "Fresh Air," called her "boring." And
Gross called Simmons "obnoxious."
No one could remember the kind of dust-up that reminded fans more of the
Howard Stern show
"The notion is if you're going to welcome me with open arms you also have
to welcome me with open legs," said Simmons, was on the show to promote his
new book, "KISS and Make-Up."
"That's a really obnoxious thing to say," Gross fired back.
"No, it's not. Why should I say something behind your back that I can't
tell you to your face?" said Simmons.
The interview was apparently so controversial that NPR has declined to make
it available on its Website where it posts at least portions of nearly all
other interviews that appear on "Fresh Air," one of its most popular daily
At one point, Gross asked Simmons about his "studded codpiece."
"It holds my manhood, otherwise it would be too much for you to take,"
Simmons said. "You'd have to put the book down and confront life."
The conversation continued:
Gross: Has it come to this? Is this the only way you can talk to a woman,
with that shtick?
Simmons: Let me ask you something - why is it shtick when all women have
ever wanted since we crawled out of caves is, `Why can't a man just tell me
the truth and speak to me plainly?' So if I do that, you can't have it both
Gross: So you really have no sense of humor about this, do you?
Simmons: I was going to suggest you get outside of the musty place where
you can count the dust particles falling around you and get out into the
world and see what everybody else is doing.
Gross: Having sex with you?
Simmons: Well, if you choose but you'd have to stand in line.
Gross: OK, well we since you keep bringing this up . . . You write that
you've had 4,600 sexual liasions."
Simmons: You're supposed to say `so far.'
Gross: "So far. To you this will be asking the obvious, but why have you
wanted so many encounters?"
Simmons: "M-A-N, the notion is plain."
Gross: "I'd like to think the personality you presented on our show today
is a persona that you've affected as a member of KISS, but that you're not
nearly as obnoxious when you're at home or with friends."
Simmons: "Fair enough, and I'd like to think that the boring lady who's
talking to me now is a lot sexier and more interesting than the one's who's
doing NPR, studious and reserved."
Gross could not be reached yesterday for comment.
Winona Ryder Pleads Innocent to Shoplifting Charge
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (Reuters) - Actress Winona Ryder pleaded innocent on Tuesday to shoplifting and drug possession charges stemming from a December incident at a posh Beverly Hills store.
Ryder, 30, took most of the media by surprise by going to the Beverly Hills Courthouse on Tuesday afternoon for her arraignment, which had been scheduled for Friday.
The "Girl, Interrupted" star, currently free on bail, is charged with felony offenses of grand theft, second-degree commercial burglary, vandalism and possession of a controlled substance. If convicted of all four charges she could be sentenced to three years and eight months in prison.
Ryder, who checked herself into a hospital for depression in 1990, is accused of trying to steal clothes, handbags and hair accessories worth about $4,800 from the Saks Fifth Avenue store in Beverly Hills on Dec. 12.
Police have said that she was arrested after being seen on a store video apparently tearing the security tags off the items and stuffing them into a bag with clothes she had purchased earlier.
The possession charge relates to an unmarked bottle of Oxycodone painkillers for which she allegedly did not have a prescription.
Ryder's lawyer has said the charges are unfounded, the painkillers were prescribed to Ryder and that the entire incident resulted from a "misunderstanding."
The petite dark-haired actress was nominated for a best-supporting actress Oscar for the 1993 film "Age of Innocence" and won a best actress Oscar nomination the following year for "Little Women."
