"Hell Comes To Frogtown" (1987)

You may remember Scoops review of this film about mutant three-peckered horneytoads, staring Roddy Piper as the dubious hero who is to empregnate every remaining fertile woman on earth, kick some frog but, and seduce his keeper, Sandahl Bergman. Bergman runs around a lot in underwear, their armed escort, Cec Verrell shows her breasts, and several unknowns have see-throughs.

I agree completely with Scoop, this is a bad movie lovers wet-dream come true. Give me this over Gladiator any day. Besides, Rowdy Roddy could kick Russell Crowe's ass. C+

    Another look at the fantastic spread from Arena Magazine with Ana-Claudia doing a visual biography of the famous porn star Savannah. (Yes, there's plenty of nudity). I'm not sure who to credit for the great scans, but photographer David La Chappelle was behind the lens.

    An excellent collection of topless DVD 'caps from "Breathless" (1983). Thanks to Donbun.

    Christina Ricci A minor see-thru nipple sighting. By the way, I think she needs to try a new anti-perspirant.

    A little something for the Brits...the very busty Lucinda caught topless while sunbathing. Apparently she is one of the stars of a Saturday afternoon children's in the UK called "Harry and Cosh".

    Louise Redknapp One more for the Brits. Vidcaps by Watty with some nice legs and a tight shirt from her latest video.

    Which sends me right down Rant Avenue....

    Could it be true? Is it possible that Homer Simpson was right when he said "Everyone knows Rock attained perfection in 1974. It's a scientific fact." Lately with all of the N-Sucks and Britneys on the charts, signs definitely seem to point in that direction.

    Why do I bring this up now? Well, because UK pop star Louise here made this video for her cover version of the 1973 song "Stuck In The Middle With You" by Stealer's Wheel. That's right, the song from "Reservoir Dogs". What's next? A Barry Manilow revival? or maybe the return of Foghat? It's already sad enough that Neil Diamond has a new live special coming up on A&E. What other painful memories from that decade can record execs dig up?

    When will we let the 70's go? Or perhaps the fact that we can't let go is the proof that Homer was right! Was 1975 the year the music died?

    Personally I'm convinced that Rock isn't dead, just in a coma, with occasional moments of consciousness. Yup, there are times when the planets align just right, and a band or act comes along, breaks the mold and reminds us exactly why it's called Rock. Their music kicks the bubble-gum-pop-flavor-of-the-month-cover-of-Tiger-Beat-MTV-media-darling crap on it's ass, cranks it up to 11, wakes ups the neighbors, and pisses off the people in charge! And when that happens it's not so much about the money, it not because they want to be in a Pepsi commercial, and it's not to have their faces shown every 5.8 minutes on MTV. The reason is simple...for the love of music. Oh, and of course for the chicks.

    But it seems that all of that ass kicking takes it's toll on Rock and the beast tends to stay comatose for longer and longer periods these days. But I have no doubt the sleeping giant will return. I just hope it's more sooner than later.

    Celeb Rumors
    From the mail bag...

    Dear Scoop,
    Just heard on a Spanish TV tabloid that there are some pictures floating around of Claudia Schiffer and her boyfriend caught doing the nasty. They are spending some time in Majorca this Summer, and while showing their comings and goings on the island, the Spanish announcer said: "no, we are not going to show you those pictures of Claudia and her boyfriend doing THAT". Hopefully they'll show up on some English tabloid or somewhere. Can you make a request?

  • Halle's Hooters Speak Again...
    Thanks to Pat Reeder at The Comedy Wire for pointing this one out

    From Internet Database News:

    Halle: 'I Wasn't Paid Extra To Strip Off'

    Halle Berry insists she wasn't paid extra to appear topless in Swordfish. The actress stars alongside John Travolta and Hugh Jackman in the blockbuster, and was reportedly paid an extra $500,000 to bare her breasts. But Halle says she received no extra money for the saucy scene. She says, "It was the most embarrassing moment of my life. I'd never done nudity in my whole career. I wasn't paid an extra $500,000 to do it. That's totally not true. It's made for great publicity for the movie, so I laugh about it."

    This is a good one...


    For family members, it is often the most difficult and painful decision they will face: to accept that a loved one - a parent, a spouse, perhaps a sibling - is technologically impaired and should no longer be allowed to live independently, or come near a computer or electronic device without direct supervision. The time has come to place that loved one into the care of an Assisted Computing Facility.

    But you have questions. So many questions. We at Silicon Pines want to help.


    Sometimes referred to as "Homes for the Technologically Infirm," "Technical Invalid Care Centers," or "Homes for the Technically Challenged," Assisted Computing Facilities, (ACFs), are modeled on assisted living facilities, and provide a safe, structured residential environment for those unable to handle even the most common, everyday multitasks. Most fully accredited ACFs, like Silicon Pines, are and oasis of hope and encouragement that allow residents to lead productive, technologically relevant lives without the fear and anxiety associated with actually having to understand or execute the technologies themselves.


    Sadly, technology is advancing at such a dramatic rate that many millions, of all ages, will never truly be able to understand it, putting an undue burden on those friends and family members who must explain it to them. But unless the loved one is suffering from a truly debilitating affliction, such as Reinstallzheimers, the decision to commit is entirely personal. You must ask yourself, "How frustrated am I that my parent/sibling/spouse is unable to open an email attachment?"

    "How much of my time should be taken up explaining how RAM is different from hard drive memory?"

    "How many times can I bear to hear my dad say, 'Hey, can I replace the motherboard with a fatherboard? Ha ha ha!'"

    To make things easier, we have prepared a list of Warning Signs which we encourage you to return to often or, if you can't figure out how to bookmark, print out.

    Also, please take a moment to read "I'm Glad I'm in Here! - A Resident's Story."


    Several corporations have sought permission to have certain employees, or at times entire sales departments, committed to ACFs. At present, however, individuals can be committed only by direct family, or self-internment. The reason is simple: there are not nearly enough ACFs in the world to accommodate all the technologically challenged. For example, there are currently only 860,000 beds available in ACFs, but there are 29 million AOL users.


    ACF rents range from free* up to $12,500 per month. The disparity is currently a point of contention in the ACF industry. Many residents are covered through government programs such as Compucaid or Compucare, but reimbursement rates are low and only cover a portion of the fees. Exacerbating the situation are the HMOs (Helpdesk Maintenance Organizations), which often deny coverage, forcing residents to pay out of pocket or turn to expensive private techcare insurers such as BlueCache/BlueScreen.

    Offsetting the costs are technology companies themselves, many of which subsidize ACFs. Firms such as Microsoft, Dell, Qualcomm, and America Online will pay up to 100 percent of a resident's monthly bill, but there is a catch. ISPs, for instance, require residents to sign service contracts lasting a year or more. Microsoft, meanwhile, prohibits the installation of any competitive software, while Priceline requires that residents buy shares of its stock, which seems onerous but saves residents on lavatory tissue.


    Until very recently, you had to be 18 or older to legally commit a family member. However, the now famous British court case Frazier vs. Frazier and Frazier has cleared the way for minors to commit their parents. In that case, 15-year-old Bradley Frazier of Leicester had his 37-year-old parents committed to an ACF in Bournemouth after a judge ruled Ian and Janet Frazier were a "danger to themselves and the community." According to court records, Bradley told his parents about the ILoveYou virus and warned them not to click attachments, then the next day his parents received an ILoveYou email and clicked on the attachment because, they explained, "it came from someone we know."


    First, make sure it's a genuine Assisted Computing Facility, and not an Assisted Living Facility. To tell the difference, observe the residents. If they look rather old and tend to openly discuss bowel movements, this is probably 'assisted living.' On the other hand, if they vary in age and say things like, "I'm supposed to figure that out? I'm not Bill goddamned Gates you know!," this is probably 'assisted computing.'

    Also, at a well-run ACF, residents should lead full, independent lives, and should be allowed the use of many technology devices, including telephones, electric toothbrushes, and alarm clocks. However, only a facility's Licensed Techcare Professionals (LTPs) should perform computational or technological tasks such as installing programs or saving email attachments. And LTPs should NEVER answer residents' questions because studies have shown that answering user questions inevitably makes things worse. Instead, residents should simply have things done for them, relieving them of the pressure to "learn" or "improve."



    OK, THIS SOUNDS PROMISING. HOW CAN I LEARN MORE? For your enlightenment, we offer extensive information on Silicon Pines and the ACF lifestyle, which can be found by clicking one of the links in the navigation bars found at both the top and bottom of this page. But whatever you decide, keep in mind that due to demand, ACFs now have long waiting lists. WebTV subscribers alone will take years to absorb.
