My eyesight is back! If I had known how long it would take, I would have called Junior to fill in today, but I thought I'd be OK. Oh, well. The page was late today, but everything is now back to normal.

Mi Conejo Es El Mejor


Mi Conejo Es El Mejor, which translates My Cunny is the Best, or My Pussy is the Best, is a Spanish softcore sex film starring Lina Romay. Surprisingly, Jess Franco, Lina's long-time lover and collaborator, as well as a prolific Spanish director of similar films, had nothing to do with this one!

Scoop's sidebar:

Conejo literally means "rabbit" in a direct modern translation, but "rabbit" and "cunny" are precisely the same thing, both in a literal linguistic sense, and in terms of the implicit sexual metaphor.

Other European languages use "mouse" and "rabbit" as sexual euphemisms and in sexual double entendres, precisely equivalent to the way English speakers use the word "pussy." But the English use of "pussy" in that sense is modern, dating back only to the 1870s. Not only that, but when it was first used it may indeed have been referring to a rabbit, not a cat! The first written use of pussy as a slang version of "cat" was in 1726, but it had been used as a term for "rabbit" even earlier. Throughout the 18th and early 19th centuries, the term "pussy" was used to refer to both animals!

In fact, the use of "pussy" to refer to rabbits continued much longer in Australia. The 1941 edition of Baker's "Dictionary of Australian Slang" explicitly defines "pussy" as "a rabbit." The use may continue in some parts of Oz to this day, although I do not know that for a fact. I never heard the term used in this way, not when I worked in Sydney, nor when I worked in Perth.

In the 16th through 18th centuries, the word "rabbit" was used in English to refer to the young of that species, as we use "puppy" today to mean a young dog. The common and ordinary term for the adult burrowing rodent in those days was "coney," which rhymed with "money" or "honey," and was often spelled "cunny" in those days before orthography was standardized. So "cunny" is both a direct translation for and and a cognate form of the Spanish word "conejo." Both words ultimately derive from the Latin word for a rabbit, which was "cuniculus," which in turn seems to come from the Greek "kouneli." One linguistic theory holds that the Greek word came from an even more ancient Celtic word.

In summary, both "pussy" and "cunny" are slang terms for the female genitalia, and both terms used to refer to rabbits!

Lina is in a reform school as the story opens, and is caught lapping another student, María Eugenia Muñoz. When the guard catches them, she beats Lina with a ruler, but then cuddles the other girl, whom she is sweet on. Lina has had enough and escapes, but finds herself broke and alone in Madrid. A handsome stranger, Emilio Linder, comes to the rescue, offering her a hot bath, dinner and a warm bed. Everything seems on the up and up, and his maid, Elena Alverez, is put in charge of getting her bathed and settled into a room. Her first clue that something may be wrong is when she wakes up in the middle of the night, and finds Emilio beating then screwing the maid. After a few days in the house, Lina wants to play, too, even if it entails bondage and discipline.

When he offers her to a business associate, Lina leaves, but returns, and the three settle into a relationship. Then they are taken to an orgy. This doesn't seem to bother Lina, but Emilio recruits a third woman to join their happy family. Those who guessed María Eugenia Muñoz, the student from the first scene, are way ahead of me.

I greatly enjoyed this little softcore. Lina Romay was at her young prime, and demonstrated that she could act. Much of the full frontal exposure is very well lit. For the kinkier among you, there is lots of bondage and whipping, and plenty of the old favorite, the lesbian kiss. The Spanish clearly know how to make erotica. Yes, it is in Spanish with no subtitles, but I had no trouble at all following the story.

IMDb is still awaiting 5 votes. That's not surprising, since this rarity has never before been available in the US. has filled the gap with an all-region DVD. Spanish-speakers who like softcore erotica need this one for their collections, and Lina Romay fans also need it.

Play Nice


Today we look at an erotic thriller. Louise Robey's main claim to fame was the 1987-1990 TV series "Friday the 13th" in which she played Micki Foster. Play Nice was her very last known appearance, where she did her only screen nudity displaying a very nice set of breasts.

Dropping her first name from her stage name for her recording career, Robey also had a hit song  "One Night In Bangkok," in 1984. During a marriage to an Earl, she became Louise, Countess of Burford! Although she's been out of the consciousness of the mainstream for several years, she's only 37 now, living in New York, active in the New Wave Rock scene.

Rise: Blood Hunter is not just a vampire movie. Yes, the 2007 film IS a vampire movie, but it is also a well-done horror story with many nice twists, and it's very different in many ways. It's done in non-linear sequence, which makes it a little hard to follow at first, but after a few minutes, you'll easily figure out what's going on.

Lucy Liu plays Sadie Blake, a reporter for a tabloid, who just finished a story on what appears to be a cult of Goth-types.

A young woman who was part of the piece shows up dead in a dumpster two days later, and Sadie begins to wonder if there was more to this group than she'd realized. After an involuntary meeting with the group's leader, things get really crazy, and Sadie wakes up dead.

Telling you more will give away too much of the plot, so suffice it to say this is a top-notch vampire flick that's a lot more, and is well worth watching.

Buried Alive

Your typical horror movie where a bunch of guys and girls go to a cabin to have some fun, one of them has to take his pills but doesn't, and then people start dying. I probably just typed out the plot of a million horror movies, but you always get different actresses doing the nudity, so is not a problem to watch the same plot again and again.

Thursday, Republicans had a field day slamming Senators Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer for attaching $1 million to build a Woodstock Museum to a health and education bill.  It was backed by a billionaire Democratic donor.  Clinton and Schumer said it would boost upstate New York's art, culture and tourism, but John McCain called it a "shining example" of pork barrel spending, and conservatives mocked it as "an LSD flashback" and a "hippie museum."  After a rancorous debate, Republicans got it removed by a 52-42 vote.

*  Turns out there's already a government-financed museum for
old Woodstock relics. It's called "PBS." 

In San Francisco, free needles for drug addicts turned out to have a downside: a lot of overdose deaths.  To counter that, officials are moving to create America's first public, supervised injection room.  It's patterned after a place in Vancouver where addicts can get injected with heroin, cocaine or meth in private booths, then chill out with a cup of coffee.  There have been 800 overdoses there but no deaths, thanks to the medical staff.  A spokeswoman said it's sort of like a beauty salon, and is so crowded that if it were a restaurant, they'd be making a profit. 

*  Well, it IS like the beauty parlor that Kate Moss goes to.


Las Vegas news sources report that 12 FBI agents staged  a raid on a warehouse owned by magician David Copperfield.  They reportedly took a computer, the memory chip from the security cameras and $2 million in cash from a safe. Agents also visited the MGM Grand where Copperfield plays.  They would not discuss the object of the investigation. 

*  President Bush suspects David Copperfield of being a terrorist because he made the Statue of Liberty disappear. He ordered the raid on that warehouse to find her!
