I forgot to mention yesterday. "The
Hot Dog Girls" is also known as "Jane Austen's
Hot Dog Girls"
Here's a new-to-me site with vidcaps and videos, French and otherwise
HAPPY HOLIDAYS, early, since I'll be away a few
days. Holiday greetings to all of you, but especial
thanks and merriment from the Scoopy's to the following:
1. To all of you readers
who have been around since the very beginning. Every once
in a while, I get a letter from one of you guys who's
been around since the page was on AOL, and I can't
believe you've been reading every word we've written for
five years, you maniacs.
2. To RDO, spiritual
father of so many of us. Back in the early days, some
people would cap the common movies with the big stars,
but only RDO was out there looking to verify or refute
the obscure claims, or uncover the forgotten. Because of
RDO's groundbreaking, so many guys (including me) have
discovered the joy of finding the obscure bit of flesh in
the forgotten film. Thanks also to all you other guys who
like to do the same thing.
3. To Tuna, who never
misses a day, and has done something like 10,000
spectacular and ever-improving images for us, helps out
with UNIX, writes the page when needed, what else is
there? And who else would capture The Wizard of Oz and
The Music Man? There is no official tally of these
things, but I think Tuna is now the fourth most prolific
imager in the history of the internet, and he's only been
doing it a year and a half! He's produced about 10,000
images in maybe 500 days - 20 per day. In comparison,
I've produced about 15,000 under various names, but over
the course of about 1800 days (maybe 8 per day), so Tuna
should pass me soon. The all-time kings are Scanman
(somewhere over 20,000) and Graphic Response (Don't know
how many. More than 10,000, less than Scanman). Both of
them have been doing it several years.
4. And to PAL - how many
years is it now? - always great finds, bright colors,
clear caps, something to look forward to every weekend.
5. To Helcrom, who has
been contributing for so many years (more than 1000
collages now - about 9 frames per collage!), was the
first guy ever to send "signed" material to us,
and who is Scoopy Jr's personal hero.
6. To all the other guys
who contribute other kinds of material to us, and get no
reward other than a free membership, and especially to
the guys who contribute exclusively to us: let me mention
Brainscan by name, since he's around with pictures almost
every day, and writes solid commentary as well. And
ZenGuru, who does such gorgeous collages from that runway
7. To all the
German-celebs guys who have helped build our knowledge of
Euro Tv, magazines, and movies. Especially to Blackshine,
who must scan, what, a thousand pictures a day? Well, it
seems like it.
8. To Charlie and Honte,
for their always knowledgeable and astute work in the
realms of France, Sweden, and beyond.
9. To TomCat - who sends
in so much stuff I can't even keep up with it, and who
has come up with some of the best finds of the year, and
who gets so many TV stations in so many countries that he
must have a satellite dish as big as NASA's.
10. To the other guys
who like the same things I like, and look so hard for
movie stuff we've never seen before - Mongoose,
Schmutzfink, OZ, FR, Snowblind, Snappy Pappy, GR, and
11. Our old friends
missing in action: Greetings and thanks to Stone Cold,
wherever you are, we miss your crazy rants about fucking
Hillary Clinton and decorating the crack ho's for
Christmas, even though we didn't understand half of what
you said. And to Blinky, wherever you are, thanks for
educating us on the world of the runways. And to Realist,
wherever you are, you created a style that so many have
copied (especially me). And to Frodo, wherever you are,
for imparting your vast knowledge of babes and their
various aliases. To ICMS, wherever you are, I really miss
your wit and knowledge of film trivia. To El Kabong,
wherever you are, thank you for that trip through the
legendary scandals, and for sharing your collection with
us. To DB, the king of naked opera, wherever you are, you
must be the most unusual imager on the planet, and I hope
there is Mozart playing where you can hear it.
12. To Celebrity Sleuth,
for the knowledge and humor you bring to us here and in
13. To ESS and #6 for
all that silly crap we laugh at.
14. To all guys who send
15. To Snowblind and Lawdog for running the request board and the polls so professionally.
16. And especially to
any guys who send material exclusively to us, - many
thanks, even if I forgot to mention your name, ....
Today's stuff: I watched
Sacrifice. OOPS! Poor co-ordination between me and Tuna, and we both managed to pick a film with no reviews, no votes, and no comments at IMDB. I can't come with any good
reason for you to see this odd movie, unless you love Jamie Luner
and want to see her very well-toned and highly-freckled
body in a dark sex scene. I really like her muscular bod, but frankly, Scarlett, it's too dark to
see her body freckles. Half the time you can't even see the ones on her face in the close-ups. I had to do tons of
image manipulation on these, and they still stink. It's an odd film - what is it? A crime
thriller? A revenge thing? An offbeat love story? A
pro-choice polemic? I don't know, but it's poorly lit,
poorly transferred to DVD, and very poorly acted except
for Michael Madsen, who dependably plays his usual
just for fun, note the
footwear that Jamie Luner wears to walk through the
swamps in Georgia and Northern Florida.
