Hey, it's Daisy Duke!
The real Daisy, not that new one, showing off her excellent chest
in a short film clip from Nicole. This was a grade-B film made in
1978, one year before Dukes of Hazzard hit the small screen.

Britney Spears sues "Us"
- "To sum up, Spears maintains that (a) there is no
Pam-and-Tommy tape; (b) there was no threatened leak; (c)
there was no viewing party for lawyers; (d) 'there was
no laughter, disgust or goofy behavior while watching
the video...because they did not watch any
video...because there is no such video."
Shocking Guns - I Want One Of Those
- when you shoot your mate (and you better make sure
it's that way round), instead of there just being a lame
beep, your mate gets an electric shock through the
handle of their gun. Now, how neat is that?! There are
two levels of shock - wimp or tough guy.
Dress your Gay Dog
"Keira Knightley WILL be starring in Silk, adapted
from the novella by Alessandro Baricco. It is likely she
will play silkworm trader Herve Joncour's wife Helene, as
stated by the Daily Mail story which first mentioned the
role last week. The movie will be directed by Francois
Girard who has redrafted Baricco's original screenplay.
Filming is set for mid 2006, inbetween Pirates DMC and
final work on Pirates 3."

Willard, Jennifer Coolidge, Sophie Monk, Carmen Electra
- "From the writers of 'Scary Movie' and 'Spy Hard'
comes this spoof on romantic comedies. Hannigan plays

Griffin is Hannigan's father, while Coolidge and Willard
are Campbell's parents."

The trailer from Rescue Dawn
- "Christian Bale and Steve Zahn will star in 'Rescue
Dawn,' an action drama by Werner Herzog and based on the
director's acclaimed 1997 documentary, 'Little Dieter
Needs to Fly'. The film recounts the true story of
German-born Dieter Dengler, who dreamed of being a pilot
and eventually made his way to the United States, where
he joined the military during the Vietnam War era. He
was shot down over Vietnam and captured. Eventually he
organized an escape with a small band of captives. Bale
will play Dengler, and Zahn will play an ill-looking and

- They seemed to be just about out of the playoffs,
but they won in a week when Dallas, Atlanta, Minnesota
and Tampa Bay all lost, thus vaulting them into the #6
spot. (They'd be in if the season had ended today.) They
have it in their own hands. They have beaten Dallas
twice face-to-face, and have an 8-2 conference record,
so they're lookin' good on tie-breakers.

Girl Boss Guerilla (1973)
Another Woman (2000) is episode 4 from the first season of the couples
erotica series Bedtime Stories. The premise is that hostess Kim Dawson
fulfills women's fantasies. In this episode, Nikki Fritz wants to watch her
husband, Richard Moses, have sex with another woman, so they do it with Tess
This is a by-the-numbers couples erotica offering. The four sex scenes
start with a slow dolly shot of the woman, topless, sitting in the man's lap,
facing the camera, move on to cowgirl, then missionary. To their credit, they
usually only had one candle in the foreground. They did use two different
sets, but the photography was too dark, again, as usual.
Nikki Fritz shows all three Bs. Even though completely naked, Tess
Broussard only showed breasts, which drops this one from a C to a C-.
This film is called "Eksi diestrammenes zitoun dolofono," - a literal
translation would be "6 perverted women looking for a killer." The film is
mainly of interest to the true connoisseur of the Greco-trash bad movie genre
(if such a person exists). It's a virtually plotless Greek sexploitation
film which centers around a company of men and women in a house by the sea,
scheming against each other, having sex and getting killed. Frankly, it hardly
makes any sense, although there are people who have compared it to an arthouse
At one point or another, hardcore inserts were shot to make it
more interesting, but the version I saw was cut. The sex scenes stop abruptly
when they get to the body close ups - except for one blowjob scene in the
beginning, which has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the film.
It stars Tina Spathi, a softcore actress who did only about a
dozen of these films but seems to have earned a cult reputation. She has also
tried singing. This Tina Spathi is not to be confused (as IMDb has done) with a
performer going under the name Katerina Spathi, who has starred in hardcore
films. The name "Spathi" has been used repeatedly, because it attracts
L'été en pente douce (1987) is a nice French movie set in a village in the
southern countryside. Basically there are three main characters: Fane (short
for Stéphane; Jean-Pierre Bacri), his mentally handicapped brother Maurice
(Jacques Villeret) and Lilas (Pauline Lafont). Fane first lives on his own
in an apartment in a town. He obtains Lilas from his woman-bashing neighbor
in exchange for a rabbit he stole from the supermarket where he works.
When the brothers' mother dies, Fane leaves the town and takes Lilas along to
the village where he was born and moves in with Maurice in what was once their
parents' house. He makes the move to prevent Maurice from being sent to an
institution. That is not at all to the liking of their neighbors, two brothers
who each own a garage on either side of the house. They had hoped to buy the
house so they could turn their two garages into one big establishment.
Lilas is free-spirited woman who likes to flaunt what the Lord has given her,
and likes to look like Marilyn Monroe. In such a small village she is
immediately branded as a whore and never accepted by the community. No one
seems to notice that she is not a threat to their lifestyle, since she only
seems interested in Fane. Well, Maurice too, to be honest, but that's where
she draws the line. She desperately wants children.
The question now is will the villagers succeed in driving Lilas out of town
and go back to things as they used to be, or will our threesome turn out to be
closer than they ever could imagine. Can the garage owners obtain the house or
will everything end in a blast for them?
All in all "Summer in a Soft Slope," as the film's title would translate into
English, is a quiet and nice little film, at times dragging its feet a bit,
but never enough to reach for the fast forward button. It is never too
serious, as all action seems to be set in an imaginary world where no one is
the brightest bulb on the Chistmas tree. Therefore it never becomes hard to
watch, since you know that everything is to be taken with a grain of salt.
Hats off to the DP for the lighting is simply beautiful, as you can see in
the clips. The actors did a more than competent job with Jacques Villeret exceeding
them all in the role of the mentally challenged Maurice. You can even see
Claude Chabrol in a bit part as the local priest. Gérard Krawczyk directed and
co-wrote. He is the guy who would later spawn the 3 popular Taxi films in
Europe, which even caused a remake in the US starring Queen Latifah.
Pauline Lafont died under tragic
circumstances in the summer of 1988. She was hiking completely on her own in
some remote part of southern France. When she was on a trail where
practically no human being ever passes, she had a nasty fall, slid off the
track and broke a leg. Unable to get back to civilization (and with no cell
phones back then), she died from starvation and her body was only found weeks
later by the gendarmerie.
But enough of that, let us now enjoy Pauline Lafont in all her splendor. You can
see her in all her naked triple B glory in ten clips. For some reason beyond
my finite knowledge, there is no audio in clip 1 and it is certainly not from
lack of trying. (1,
Pat's comments in yellow...
WHY WHITE PEOPLE ARE WHITE
Penn State University researchers studying the zebrafish discovered that a
tiny change in one gene plays a big role in determining skin color. It could
lead to new skin cancer treatments or ways to modify skin color without tanning
or using chemicals. It might also explain why white people are white: people
whose ancestors migrated from Africa to Europe thousands of years ago have a
mutation in this gene that made their skin turn white.
* It turns out mutated genes also explain why white
people like Kenny G.
CRUISE LIVED IN SCIENTOLOGY CAMP
Scientology sources told the Los Angeles Times that Tom Cruise underwent
intensive training and counseling in the late 1980s and early 1990s at a secret
compound in the Southern California desert, surrounded by barbed wire and
security cameras. Ex-church members said most people didn't stay there long, but
Tom and Nicole Kidman were there for weeks at a time as Tom studied the Thetan-based
religion. They also reportedly had a staff of servants to cater to them 24 hours
a day, even gardeners who planted a meadow of wildflowers in the desert for them
to romp through. A church spokesman said the stories were fabricated by
* That's Scientology lingo for "true."
* Most people left after a short time, but they were
chased down and smothered by the big, bouncing balloons.
BAD CELEBRITY BEHAVIOR AWARDS
Babytalk magazine announced its awards for the most anti-mom celebrity
behavior of the year. Nicolas Cage got the Worst Baby Name award for dubbing his
son "Kal-El" after Superman. Bill Maher got the "Glow To Hell" Award for saying
pregnant women aren't sexy; "You WERE sexy. That's what got you pregnant." Jude
Law got the "Nanny Says It's Time For Bed" award for being caught by his kids
while having sex with their nanny. And the top dishonor, the "Stinkiest Diaper
of the Year Award" for the most anti-mom star, went to Tom Cruise for attacking
Brooke Shields for taking medication for postpartum depression.
* You know it's a bad year for celebrity behavior when
Russell Crowe doesn't even make the bad behavior list.
"KING KONG" UNDERWHELMS
"King Kong" is #1 at the US box office with $67 million in
its first five days, but that's about $15 million below expectations. A
Universal Pictures spokesman offered several excuses: it's not a sequel with a
built-in fan base like "Harry Potter," it's three hours long so it had fewer
showings, and movies with no human heroes are always a tough sell. But he
predicted it will stay in theaters a long time, like "Titanic," another
three-hour movie with an underwhelming debut weekend.
* If only Kong had sung a Celine Dion song while beating his chest.
