Charlie's French Cinema Nudity site has been
Wow. Who would have guessed this? Annabeth Gish
did a nude scene in the premiere episode of Showtime's Brotherhood.
This is HOT! Possibly the most famous scene from Animal House (Movie
House Review) in high
definition. Belushi spies on Mary-Louise Weller.
Fairly big download for a small clip, but totally worth it! Sample captures
Borat responds to the government of Kazakhstan, which said, "We do not rule out that Mr. Cohen is serving someone's political order designed to present Kazakhstan and its people in a derogatory way. We reserve the right to any legal action to prevent new pranks of the kind. We view Mr. Cohen's behaviour at the MTV Europe Music Awards as utterly unacceptable, being a concoction of bad taste and ill manners which is completely incompatible with ethics and civilized behaviour."
"Sacha Baron Cohen - star of HBO's hit comedy Da Ali G Show, takes his outrageous Kazakstani reporter character Borat to the big screen. In this hilariously offensive movie, Borat travels from his primitive home in Kazakhstan to the U.S. to make a documentary. On his cross-country road-trip, Borat meets real people in real situations."
We interrupt your cell phone call with this important announcement: The government will soon be sending warnings of national emergencies on wireless phones, Web sites and hand-held computers. The new digital system will update the emergency alerts planned -- but never used -- during the Cold War in the event of a nuclear strike.
No baby boomer can ever forget those chilling words from our youth: "This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. We repeat, it is just a test. Had it been an actual alert, you would now be fried to a crisp."
The new system will be used to report more modern concerns, like terrorist activities and ads for "Snakes on a Plane." Now get outta here, ya nuts, and get those motherfuckin' snakes off my motherfuckin' plane.
You have to read through the product reviews! Some of the funniest stuff I've read in ages.
One reviewer wrote: "I'll admit it. Shopping for a personal tank can be a bit daunting. Many times in the past I've purchased overpriced, so-called "battle tanks", then driven them into battle only to be wrecked in ten minutes by the first blow off of some insurgents home-made mortar. But not this baby, no way. This tank R-O-C-K-S! Literally- the 400-watt sound-system keeps me rockin like a crazy man as I'm dishing out justice commando style. Wow. I just can't say enough. And the kids love it, too- imagine the look of terror in the eyes of the enemy as I'm dropping off my kid's team to their soccer game. Shock and awe, my friends, SHOCK AND AWE! I had NAO install the optional GPS-guided white phosphorus missile system, and talk about *SWEET*! Burn baby burn!!! Oh, it also has plenty of room for groceries, and if you need to like move a loveseat or something it'll fit if you use a little bungee cord. The only real negative with this tank is that it shows up on radar a little more than I like (although there is a polyresin graphite stealth model available). Also, the included spare isn't full size. Overall, a great tank."
"Priscilla Chase seemed to have everything going for her with one small private exception... She never thought much of sex. When her husband unexpectedly leaves her to regain his manhood she embarks on a wild journey that leads her to satisfaction and love in the most unlikely place."
"When three popular girls from different cliques discover they've all been dating the school stud, they band together to seek revenge. Despite the jerk’s charm and ever-growing popularity, the girls cleverly scheme with the help of the inconspicuous new girl in town, to soil his reputation and break his heart."
For customers of Super Club, the largest high-volume, bulk-discount retailer in the country, membership has its privileges. For workers at the cavernous store, the most coveted honor is the "Employee of the Month" award, and having one's photo immortalized on the wall of fame in the staff lounge. Enter Zack Bradley (Dane Cook) and Vince Downey (Dax Shepard), two ultra competitive Super Club workers whose ten years of employment have resulted in drastically different career paths. While Vince – with the aid of his trusty sidekick Jorge (Efren Ramirez) -- has advanced to become head cashier and winner of 17 consecutive "E of M" awards, Zack is the ultimate slacker whose scruffy appearance and laid back attitude has made him popular with his colleagues, but kept him stuck in the lowly ranks of the store's box boys. The duo's longtime rivalry comes to a bitter head when Amy (Jessica Simpson) – a beautiful new cashier with a reputation of only dating "Employee of the Month" winners – transfers to the store, immediately becoming the object of both Zack and Vince's affection and often comical gamesmanship. While Vince instantly impresses Amy with his crowd pleasing, flamboyant style behind his checkstand register, Zack's feeble attempts to charm his beautiful new co-worker quickly backfire against him. With the race to win Amy's affections slipping away, Zack determines his only chance rests in winning the store's next "Employee of the Month" award. A battle to the end, "Employee of the Month" shows that the only failure in life is when one fails to try.
Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe). White asterisk: expanded format.

"I Love You, Alice B. Toklas!"
I Love You, Alice B. Toklas! (1968) was released while I was in the Navy, and hence I missed seeing it then. Now that it is available on DVD, I finally got my chance. I knew, of course, that it involved Alice B. Toklas brownies, and not much else. Had I seen this is the late 60s or early 70s, I would have adored it.
Peter Sellers plays a Jewish attorney engaged to a good Jewish girl (Joyce Van Patten) who is pressuring him to set a date. His brother has dropped out, and he is pretty much his Jewish mothers only hope for grand children. When Sellers is sent to fetch is brother to attend a funeral, he meets a gorgeous hippy chick, Nancy (Leigh Taylor-Young). When his family descends on him with his fiance, they end up eating brownies Nancy has made. Sellers skips out to see Nancy. Cut to the wedding, where Sellers can't go through with it, and drops out himself.
That was exactly what would have won me over. The counter-culture rescued on over 30 from the dark side and got him on the true path. Today, my reaction was somewhat different. I didn't see Van Patten as especially straight or repressive, and it occurred to me that, as a layer, he could have married her and been able to afford to enjoy the world.
Leigh Taylor-Young shows most of her breasts in two scenes.
IMDb readers say 6.3. It was nominated for acting and writing awards. My enjoyment was chiefly nostalgic, other than the fact that Leigh Taylor-Young looked amazing, and did an excellent job in the role. Sellers played it very Woody Allen-esque. This is a C. It was an important comedy in its day, but is now either hopelessly dated or a fun time capsule.
We return to "The Halfway House" for more topless "Babes in Bondage" to be devoured by the green one eyed people eating monster.
A couple of odds n' ends from the Ghost...
First up, just a hint of a breast peek from The Nanny in a scene from "Cadillac Man" (1990).
Next the Ghost serves upsome 'caps of 70's disaster movie babe turned long time working TV actress, Susan Blakely. Here she is showing off her breasts and bum in one of her early movies, 1975's "Capone".
From Squiddy, here is the always gorgeous Salma Hayek showing off a ton of cleavage for the cameras.
Squiddy supersizes our order of cleavage with this pic of Elizabeth Hurley
UK actress and rock singer Toyah Willcox gives up a bit of toplessness in these scenes from the 1979 flick, "The Tempest".
More of Skin's coverage of 1995's "Forbidden Games". Plenty of favorite B-babes in assorted states of nudity....

SLACKER BAND SUES "ROCK STAR: SUPERNOVA"

Lee. The Orange County Supernova isn't rich or famous, but they plan to fight
for their name. Bassist Art Mitchell said, "We're going to kick some butt,
dude. They probably figured we're clerks, but our drummer Dave is a lawyer."
An attorney for the show said their lawsuit is "without merit."
* Another concept the TV show stole!
* He added that the Orange County band calling themselves Supernova violates

themselves having sex with Pamela Anderson before he did.

Doherty," in which women lure their unsuspecting boyfriends onto TV, where

...And then clubs them for good measure
...Shannon really enjoys her work
...Men who come on this show NEED oxygen
...Men will tune in because they like the idea of breaking up with Shannon Doherty
...This is too public. If you want to dump somebody, take them to a crowded restaurant.
* FREE SPEECH VICTORY! Comedy Central announced that they will once again start airing the Emmy-nominated "Scientology" episode of "South Park"
...Turns out that on the new Hollywood power lists, Cartman outranks Tom Cruise.
