Preserving our precious nudity heritage!

Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle Pfeiffer did a full rear scene in Into the Night that showed off her beautiful slim booty. Unfortunately, the widescreen DVD has lost the bottom quarter of the image. Here (zipped .wmv) is what those few seconds looked like on the full screen VHS version.


Mary Steenburgen

Same deal here. Mary Steenburgen did a full nude scene in Melvin and Howard, and her pubes were seen clearly in the full screen VHS version. The DVD has only a widescreen version, and has lost Fort Bushy, as well as some great looks at her booty.

Here is the full-screen version (Zipped .wmv). Sample caps below.


Monica Bellucci

We have seen this scene from La Riffa, Monica Bellucci's film nudity debut, many times in still caps. You just can't imagine how sexy it is until you hear the music and see how her breasts come gradually into the shot. Va-va-voom. Zipped .wmv

Canadian Supreme Court rules: Canadians can have group sex in clubs

  • "The decision does not affect existing laws against prostitution because no money changed hands between the adults having sex."
  • I assume that people pay to join the club, so by the logic of the court's decision, a bordello could become legal by doing the same thing - charging people to enter, but not to engage in specific activities. Same idea as a buffet.

Movie Reviews:

Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe). White asterisk: expanded format. Blue asterisk: not mine. No asterisk: it probably sucks.




Rock & Roll Frankenstein (1999)

This film is distributed by Seduction Cinema, and because of that I was expecting a weak lesbian softcore film. Instead, I was thrilled to find a campy bad film masterpiece. A sleazy record producer loses his star. Fortunately, he has been funding his perverted nephew's research on body parts, so he comes up with a twisted plan to create a new superstar. He will have his nephew build him one, using body parts from deceased superstars. The stoner road manager and his two roadie buddies acquire the parts, like Clapton's hands, and Elvis's head. Unfortunately, in the process of trying for Jim Morrison's pecker, they end up with Liberace's instead. The procedure works perfectly, and they create "the King" who plays like Clapton, sings and talks like Elvis, and is a chick magnet in every fiber of his being -- except his schlong, which only responds to men. This results in a deeply conflicted "King" and a frustrated manager. Possibly my favorite scene has "The King" going to confession. When he realizes that the gay priest wants him, he takes the huge altar crucifix and shoves it up his ass.

Yes, it is often in areas of questionable taste. Yes, it pokes fun at mores and sexual orientation, but sometimes irreverence can be a great thing.  This is an extraordinarily low budget film based on a really funny idea, and ends up working as a cult classic bad movie.  Although IMDb readers score it a lowly 4.2,  I call it a C+, a bad movie masterpiece.

Today we can leave the Time Machine parked in the driveway as we take a look at 2005's "The Devil's Rejects". This is a nasty little flick which requires a strong stomach from viewers.

The veteran porn and B-movie star Ginger Lynn Allen kicks it off humping a really creepy guy.

Priscilla Barnes is forced to show her breasts and meets a bad ending with a blade to the boob. "Three's Company" was never like this.

To be continued.

For those of you who might wonder what happened to this week's update on Rome, I have bad news. This week's episode had to make way for the 16th edition of the Great Dictation of the Dutch Language in The Hague and was postponed until next week. BTW in that dictation the Flemish won spots 1 up to 4 and after 16 editions Flanders leads Holland 9-7, in case anyone cares.
Scoop's note: I dropped a bundle on Het Groot Dictee. I even tried to play along at home, but for some reason I thought "het" should be spelled "the." Anyway, I had five large down on the Netherlands. Damn you, Flanders, and your expert spellers!

She Already Has Huge Balls - The favored singer to win "Germany Searches for a Superstar," the German version of "American Idol," is Didi Knoblauch, who was born a girl but is halfway to realizing her dream of becoming a man.  She's already had a painful operation to remove her breasts but a complete sex change will cost over $70,000 (US).  She's hoping to win the show so she can use her prize money to buy a penis.

* That was Justin Guarini's plan, too.

*  She'll never become a man if she comes in second...Just ask Clay Aiken.


Sharon Osbourne, who is believed to have spent about $540,000 on cosmetic surgery, is about to have her breasts reduced, just six months after she had them enlarged.  She said her husband Ozzy likes them, but "they're too big.  Honestly, they weigh a lot.  I'm very lucky that I have a good cosmetic surgeon.  I don't want my nipples looking for coins on the street."

*  The way she spends money on plastic surgery, that might come in handy.



Police erected security barriers outside Windsor, England's, town hall to
hold back fans expected to show up today for Elton John's wedding, but a
spokesman said the atmosphere is good-humored, and "it's not a major police operation, it's not a royal wedding"

* For one thing, the bride is prettier.
