"Agony of Love"
Agony of Love (1966) is an exploitation classic directed by William Rotsler, and written and produced by Harry Novak. It is a sort of psychological drama/titty flick starring Pat Barrington, who was one of the more well known sexploitation actresses of the mid 60s. She is married to money, and has her own as well, but doesn't get the time and sexual attention from her husband. She had a similar problem with her father, who bought her anything she wanted, but otherwise ignored her. She compensates by turning tricks.
As the film opens, we see her running through the streets of Hollywood at night with her husband chasing her. Flash back to her johns and her visits to her shrink. We also learn that her husband will be buying a hooker for a big customer, and himself as well. If you can't figure out the ending from here, you just don't watch enough movies. She sometimes works with other girls, which accounts for the skin count.
Barrington shows breasts and buns several times. We also have breasts from Joy Lowe and Sherry Shannon, as well as two women at the end of the film. They are Helena Clayton and Tori Lambert, but there is no way to tell which is which, so they are both labeled unknowns. IMDb, which calls this From Lady to Tramp, doesn't have enough votes for a score. It is one half of a Something Weird offering. While they have the usual trailers and additional shorts, the transfer was not as good as is their norm, and there was no commentary. This film was hugely popular with the drive-in and grindhouse crowd, and made Novak a ton of money. Today, it is slow and predictable. This is a C.

A trailer and several clips from Surviving
Christmas. Facing another Christmas alone, Drew
Latham (Affleck) decides to go back to his idyllic childhood home
to spend the holidays with family. There is, however, one problem:
the people living there now are not Drew's family. Nevertheless,
Drew has his mind set on an old-fashioned family Christmas, and
the fact that the "family" in question, the Valcos, are complete
strangers, isnít about to put a crimp in his plans. Offering them
a small fortune, Drew bribes his newfound "parents" (Gandolfini
and OíHara) to let him spend Christmas in their home, pretending
to be part of the family. Just when the Valcos begin to question
if any amount of money is worth being dragged all over town on
such traditional family holiday excursions as Christmas shopping
and the requisite choosing of the Christmas tree, their eldest
daughter Alicia (Applegate) comes home for the holidays, with no
intention of adopting a new "brother."

NOTE: because of a unique combination of
circumstances with the Windows media player and some substantial
bandwidth theft, we will have to do all of our movie files in zip
format. Left click on the files as you normally would to view a
you get a choice, click on "save", and put it on your hard drive in
the directory of your choice. UnZIP and play from there.
I know this is not especially convenient, but it
allows the film clips to continue. I can protect .zip files from
hot-linking in the same way I can protect still images. For some
reason, if I protect .avis and .wmvs from hot-linking, they will not
play in the Windows media player, and I can't get a satisfactory
work-around. Perhaps I will find a better solution, but for now this
new policy allows you to continue getting the movie clips you want
to see, which is much preferable to my abandoning the clips
Black Tie Nights
Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble
with the codecs for these movies:
FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use
DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use
virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the
vids says the video codec: DivX Decoder Filter & audio
codec: Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with.
When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG
Layer-3. A friend of mine told me about compressing the
audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been
capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this
info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp &
asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using
camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could
never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost
too much to buy in my opinion.
A reader says:
You mentioned that some users were
having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool
designed to determine what codec is needed for a video.
http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ Hope this is useful to you
or your users.
I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9.
The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in
the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly
larger, and slightly lower quality.
'Caps and comments by Brainscan:
I have nothing but positive things to say about
"Seeing Other People (2004)." Not a bad thing at all.
Nary a word. Jay Mohr was his typical manly, studly,
witty self. And the gal who played his betrothed?
What a babe. The dialogue was fresh and real, and the
screenplay, a seamless masterpiece of delicate
interplay between sophisticated folk with clever and
profound things to say. What a delightful movie. Go
and rent it. Better yet, go and buy it. Two copies.
No, three. And tell all your friends to do likewise.
And let me assure you that none of the above is
written so that producers throughout Hollywood will
see just how well Seeing Other sells and will, of
course, attribute its success to the presence of two
topless Hefmates. Oh the Hefmates are there and
neither has been nekkid on-screen before but I swear
that has nothing to do with my review. Not a word.
And sure the Heffers look terrific. Well, one of them
does. That would be Nicole Marie Lenz. Damn she's
Shanna Moakler is topless, too, but its the top I am
worried about. This gal, a former Miss USA before she
was a Hefmate, used to have a most delightful, slim
body. Just like Nicole's. But then Shanna drank too
much milk or changed the ring tone on her cell phone
or something and now those things attached to her
chest... well, they just aren't that attractive
anymore. But she is a former beauty queen and a
former Hefmate and she's topless so I shouldn't
And I won't, because the movie is so great and stuff
and I mean it. No ulterior motives. No attempt to
get you folks to shell out your hard earned cash on
some crappy, boring, dime-a-dozen film that should
earn its makers an F, no a G, at UCLA film school,
just so that the lemmings who make movies will put
more nekkid Hefmates in them. Never occurred to me.
About the Nicole caps: that thing she has in her hand
in the first collage is intended not for her own use
for for Jay Mohr's. She wants to use it on him. He
objects. But see, here he is smooching and feeling up
some other gal, who is okay but she sure ain't no
Nicole Marie, leaving Nicole to her own devices. So,
I'm figuring he deserved to that thing put where the
sun don't shine just for his poor taste in women.

ARNOLD SAYS BUSH SPEECH COST HIM SEX
No Party For Arnold - Arnold Schwarzenegger told a crowd Monday that his
Democratic wife Maria Shriver was so unhappy with his pro-Bush speech at
the GOP Convention, "There was no sex for 14 days. Everything comes with
side effects." The crowd laughed, but pundits note that Arnold has
frustrated Republicans by not stumping for Bush since.

IDIOTIC VOTER FRAUD ROUND-UP
The Really Surreal Life - Elections officials in Defiance, Ohio, are
investigating a man who allegedly filled out 124 fraudulent voter
registration cards in exchange for payment in crack cocaine by a voter
drive worker. They say they first realized something was wrong when the
NAACP submitted the forms and the names on them included Dick Tracy,
Michael Jordan, George Foreman and Mary Poppins. And they all seemed to
live at the same address.
Sounds like a reality show created by someone on crack.
What really tipped them off was the claim that Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe
Bryant were living at the same address.
They didn't really need Dick Tracy to figure this one out.
Wanna Have A Grand Old Party? - Some students at the Blue Bell campus of

Also, they were too wasted to read.
