Ronald Jeremy Hyatt (born March 12, 1953) known by the stage name Ron Jeremy, is an American adult film
actor. Nicknamed "The Hedgehog",
[1]
he was ranked by AVN at number one in their "The 50 Top Porn Stars of All
Time" list.
[4]
Jeremy has also appeared in non-pornographic films, such as The Chase, Orgazmo, They Bite, The
Boondock Saints, Crank: High Voltage, Girls Gone Dead and 54.
[5]

Early life
Ron Jeremy was born in Queens, New York to a middle-class Jewish family;
[2]
his father, Arnold, was a physicist
and his mother a book editor
[6]
who served in the O.S.S. during World War II, as she spoke fluent German and
French.
[7]
Jeremy attended Cardozo High School in Bayside, Queens, where former CIA director George Tenet, actor Reginald
VelJohnson and New York State attorney Todd Silverblatt were his classmates.
[8][9]
Jeremy earned a bachelor's
degree in education and theatre and a master's degree in special education from Queens College in New York.
[10]
He
taught special-education classes in the New York City area and was a substitute teacher for regular classes.
[11]
Pornographic film career
Ron Jeremy with Dennis Hof and Heidi Fleiss at
the Adult Video Network Convention 2006 in
Las Vegas
Jeremy left the teaching profession (he called it his "ace in the hole") to
pursue an acting career in New York City, and says he learned what it
was like to make no money as an actor who "starved
Off-Broadway."
[10]
Jeremy posed for Playgirl after his then-girlfriend
submitted his photo to the magazine,
[9]
and subsequently moved into
the adult film industry as a means to support himself.
[10]
He started using his first and middle name professionally in the adult
industry, after his grandmother Rose was pestered by people calling
her thinking they were contacting him.
[6]
Rose—listed at that time as
R. Hyatt in the phone book—was pestered at all hours by prospective
suitors who’d seen Jeremy in Playgirl. "She had to move out of her
apartment for a month," he confides. "My father told me, 'If you want to get into this naked, crazy business, so be it,
but if you use the family name again, I’ll kill you.'"
Jeremy had his nickname "The Hedgehog" bestowed upon him by Bill Margold after an incident on the set of
Olympic Fever, shot in 1979.
[12]
Jeremy flew in from New York to shoot the movie, dressed in a T-shirt and shorts,
expecting warm weather. During his motorcycle ride to the set, located near Lake Arrowhead in the California
mountains, the weather deteriorated to blizzard conditions, which chilled him to the point of hypothermia. Upon
arriving at the set, Jeremy was immediately whisked away to warm up in a hot shower. When he finished, his skin
had taken on a pink hue from the temperature extremes, and the hairs on his body were standing on end. Margold's
comment upon seeing Jeremy after the shower was, "You are a hedgehog, my friend. A walking, talking
hedgehog."
[13]
Contrary to popular belief, the nickname had nothing to do with Jeremy's weight gain, as he was quite
physically fit at the time.
Jeremy is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for "Most Appearances in Adult Films";
[14]
his entry on the
Internet Adult Film Database lists more than 2,000 films in which he has performed, and an additional 281 films
which he directed.
[15]
By way of comparison, John Holmes—the next highest-ranked male star on the AVN Top 50
porn stars
[4]
—has only 384 acting credits listed on the IAFD.
[16]
One joke that made the rounds within the industry at the time was "the kinkier acts some actresses would not
perform were bestiality, sado-masochism and sex with Jeremy."
[1]
However, he has since been recognized for his
contributions to the adult industry by being inducted into both the AVN and XRCO Hall of Fame. Additionally,
Jeremy's work earned him a spot on the Adult Star Path of Fame located in Edison, New Jersey. Ron Jeremy has said
that violent video games are worse than porn.

Non-pornographic appearances
Film
Outside the adult film industry, Jeremy worked as a "special consultant" for the 1986 film 9½ Weeks.
[18]
He appears
in the 1996 horror film They Bite
[19]
in a role making a film-within-a-film (Invasion of the Fishfuckers) - another
horror film, both in the same vein as Humanoids from the Deep. He also served as a consultant on the 1997 film
Boogie Nights—which chronicled the emergence of the fictional porn star Dirk Diggler (Mark Wahlberg, loosely
based on the life of porn star and former co-worker of Jeremy's, John Holmes)—and the movie The Chase, in which
he has a small cameo as a news cameraman. He played the monster "Blisterface" in ABC's children's show Bone
Chillers.
[20]
He also appeared in the 1999 film The Boondock Saints, played a bartender in 2002's Spun, and also
acted in 2003's cult film Zombiegeddon. He was an extra in Ghostbusters,
[21]
played a male strip-club announcer in
Detroit Rock City, and had a cameo in the film Killing Zoe and in the porn spoof, Orgazmo. In addition, he appeared
in several productions released by Troma Entertainment, such as Terror Firmer, The Toxic Avenger IV: Citizen
Toxie, and Poultrygeist.
He was the subject of a feature-length biographical documentary, Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy, released in
2001 and widely distributed on DVD by mainstream retailers. Within that same year, he is briefly seen on the Heavy
Metal Band Fear Factory's DVD Digital Connectivity. In 2003, Jeremy appeared as himself in, and lent his name to,
the comedy film Being Ron Jeremy, a parody of Being John Malkovich. Jeremy is a frequent interviewee in
documentaries about the porn industry, or related subjects such as Fuck: A Fuckumentary.
He was featured in the music video "The Plot to Bomb the Panhandle" by A Day to Remember in 2007 off of their
CD entitled For Those Who Have Heart.
[22]
In 2007, he appeared in the comedy film Finishing the Game as himself.
Jeremy starred 2008 in the erotic horror film I am Virgin, which was released in 2010.
[23]
Jeremy has a cameo in Crank: High Voltage, playing himself as a protester angry at the low salaries porn stars get.
He once again appears as himself in the 2009 release One-Eyed Monster, a horror film parody predicated on the
premise that an alien force takes over Jeremy's penis and begins killing people in the woods.
[24][25]
In an effort to
uniquely promote the film, Ron Jeremy's penis started its own blog,
[26]
and began to tweet on April 2.
[27]
Ron is the Lead Antagonist/League Owner in the sports comedy Tetherball: The Movie and appeared in the western
comedy Big Money Rustlas featuring Insane Clown Posse in 2010.
Television
Jeremy appeared in the second season of The Surreal Life,
[28]
during which he developed a close friendship with
Tammy Faye Bakker despite her devout Christianity and disapproval of pornography, and returned to the franchise
for the ninth season of The Surreal Life: Fame Games,
[29]
in which he finished second to Traci Bingham on the
season finale, which aired on 25 March 2007. Jeremy also appeared in a segment on Comedy Central's Chappelle's
Show. Additionally, he made appearances on Penn and Teller's Bullshit! in episodes regarding penis enlargement and
circumcision. In 2005, he appeared on the UK reality TV show, The Farm. Jeremy also made a brief cameo on
Lewis Black's Root of All Evil, in the episode YouTube VS Porn, in a short segment where people on the street were
shown a video of hardcore pornography, and ironically, Jeremy was the only one disgusted by the video.
Jeremy is part of a running gag on ESPN's Jim Rome Is Burning and Premiere Radio Networks' The Jim Rome Show.
Rome, who normally despises the porn industry, has a new-found respect for Jeremy for recording a program
bumper saying, "This is Ron Jeremy, head coach of the Miami Heat, and you're watching Jim Rome Is Burning." The
bumper is a reference to Jeremy's striking resemblance to former Miami Heat and Orlando Magic head coach Stan
Van Gundy. Jeremy was seen in the Robot Chicken episode, "A Piece of the Action", which was voiced by Michael
Benyaer. In this episode, he and several others parody The Surreal Life and Lord of the Rings. The segment
lampoons his penis size by having his character unseat a knight on horseback using nothing but his erect penis.
Jeremy appeared as himself in the 2001 Family Guy episode "Brian Does Hollywood", in which he is a presenter at
Ron Jeremy

also appeared as a guest commentator on the Fox News Channel late-night news and comedy talk show Red Eye w/
Greg Gutfeld in 2007. In the "Super Karate Monkey Death Car" episode of Newsradio, Jeremy can be seen sitting in
the audience at Jimmy James's reading, along with Brian Posehn. Jeremy appeared in Tosh.0 as the falling prom
girl's date. Jeremy appeared on Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, as himself, in Bourdain's "Food Porn" (Season
5) and "Food Porn 2" (Season 6) episodes. Jeremy appeared on Silent Library in 2010. In the show, he was the

Advertisement
As a further indication of his crossover celebrity status, Jeremy has posed in an advertisement for People for the
Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to raise awareness of the overpopulation of domesticated animals. In the
poster, he lies partially nude on a bed, a pair of handcuffs on his wrists. Poking fun at his notoriety, the title of the
advertisement exclaims, "Too much sex can be a bad thing. Spay and neuter your cats and dogs."
[38]
Jeremy also
appeared in a 2008 video for PETA, explaining why in his view, more humane slaughter practices by KFC would be
"not just a moral thing but also a smart business move," quipping that "The Colonel might get a promotion and
become a General" as a result.
[39]
Books
Jeremy released his memoir, titled Ron Jeremy: The Hardest (Working) Man in Showbiz, in February 2007.

Public speaking
Ron Jeremy at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas,
January 2008
In 2005, Jeremy made headlines when he was invited to address the
Oxford Union. According to the Union’s librarian, Vladimir Bermant,
"Ron is the biggest and apparently the best in the business, so I'm sure
he'll have some fascinating stories to tell."
[42][43]
Personal life
In 2006, Jeremy began a series of debates on pornography opposing
Pastor Craig Gross, founder of anti-pornography website
XXXchurch.com,
[44]
visiting various U.S. and Canada college
campuses as part of the "Porn Debate Tour."
[45][46]
On January 29, 2013, Jeremy drove himself to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after experiencing severe chest pain.
[47]
Doctors discovered an aneurysm near his heart and he was operated on the following day.
[47][48]
Three weeks later,
he was released from the hospital, showing off his scars, saying he'd lost 45 pounds and planned to change his diet,
and telling New York Daily News reporters “Eating healthy food is depressing, but it’s keeping me alive. My dad is
94 and still going strong. He got mad at me for this. He jokes that he and my mom gave me the perfect body, and I
screwed it up.”

54 (also known as Studio 54) is a 1998 American drama film written and directed by Mark Christopher, loosely
based on the late 1970s epopea of Studio 54, a world-famous New York City disco club, the main setting of the film.
It stars Ryan Phillippe, Salma Hayek, and Neve Campbell. It also stars Mike Myers as Steve Rubell, the co-founder
of the club.
Plot
Shane O'Shea (Ryan Phillippe) is a young Jersey man, handsome enough to become a bartender at Studio 54. There
he befriends aspiring singer Anita (Salma Hayek) and her husband, Greg Randazzo (Breckin Meyer). Shane gets
sucked into the hard-partying scene at Studio 54; as his life spirals downward, so does Studio 54.

Production
Based on two short films he had made, Mark Christopher persuaded Miramax Films to back a full-length feature
about Studio 54. He had spent five years researching the club and the time period, as well as working on a
screenplay. Miramax purchased a partial screenplay in 1995 and developed the script with the filmmaker for over a
year. Christopher shot the film in Toronto over two months in the fall of 1997. During the production, a Miramax
executive was often found on the set and studio head Harvey Weinstein flew up from New York to give his approval.
Expectations were high with the hopes that the film would become a big summer hit. Christopher finished his cut of
the film and the studio scheduled the film's release for July of the following year. After initial positive reaction
within the company, early test screenings in the Long Island suburbs for the two-hour cut of the film were
disappointing to the studio. Audiences found the characters unlikable and reacted negatively to the kiss between
Shane and Greg. They also did not respond well to the happy ending for both of them and Anita. Christopher said via
his publicist, “Our goal was to keep the audience sympathetic to the characters, [and] any material that was removed
from the film was removed because it was too challenging for some members of the audience."
[3]
Miramax requested
cuts be made and Christopher initially refused.
The studio forced Christopher to reshoot parts of his movie with only two months until its theatrical release,
destroying the love triangle subplot between the three characters. Much of the cast was called back for two weeks of
54 (film)
13
additional filming in New York without being told what they would be shooting. Meyer, for example, found out that
his substantial part in the film had been cut down to a stereotypical best-friend role and a new scene was shot that
portrayed his character as a thief. The kiss between Greg and Shane was replaced with a conversation. Ultimately, 45
minutes of the original film were deleted and replaced with 25 minutes of new scenes and voice-over.
Christopher initially complained to friends and colleagues about what the studio was doing to his movie but under
pressure at the film's release, he took a more politically advantageous stance. "We were both trying to make the best
movie possible, and I think we've done that,"
[3]
he said at the time.
Historical inaccuracies
Being on a tight budget, the movie ultimately ended up only a loosely-based rendition of the Studio 54 era: some of
the most prominent club patrons of the time (Sylvester Stallone, John Travolta, Mariel and Margaux Hemingway,
Mick and Bianca Jagger, and many others) are barely ever mentioned if at all (with the exception of Andy Warhol,
briefly seen in one scene), although during the end credits some photos of the era are shown, depicting such people
mingling with the club owners.
The time frame is slightly off against the actual dates when the events took place (primarily, the IRS raid): the movie
is set during 1979, when Steve Rubell had already been indicted for tax crimes.
The co-founder of the club, Ian Schrager, a major figure at the time, is not seen at all, replaced by a mob-like
Italian-American figure named "Anthony", supposedly the leader of the money-skimming operation that leads to the
club ultimate demise. The character of Rubell is left as the sole manager of the establishment. Schrager was as
present in the club life as Rubell was so his total absence from the script is puzzling.
Also, there is very little visual reference to the clothing, hair and makeup styles in fashion during the disco era of the
late 1970s: at the time, men sported beards, moustaches and long hair much more evidently than what is seen in the
movie, where furthermore only a few of the actresses and extras wear suitable hairstyles and clothes relevant to the
time period. In fact, most of the patrons in the movies rather feature hair and clothes that were ordinary in the late
1990s when the movie was shot.
The decor, lighting and original furnishings of the Studio 54 dancefloor have been recreated only up to a point: some
of the famous props are there (the man-moon, the rainbow lightfan, the DJ booth), while most of the lighting devices,
such as moving heads, scanners and compact laser units, clearly visible in some scenes, simply did not exist at the
time and would not have until well into the 1990s. Also, the original Studio 54 was rife with very colorful and
powerful lighting marquees and pillars and similar devices, up to right in the middle of the dancefloor. There is no
trace of those in the movie.
Most crowd scenes are sparsely populated, and dancing scenes are very sedate, as if very few extras were available
for shooting.
The family of Steve Rubell protested after the film release for what they perceived as an unfaithful rendition of their
relative's character, portrayed as an intelligent but inordinately sleazy gay predator with a severe alcohol and
substance abuse problem, connected with the mob, and who literally swims thru stashes of dollar bills. While the
money skimming operation did actually take place, and Rubell himself did die of AIDS-related causes in 1989, he
was not open about his sexuality and there is no substantial evidence for mob connections or for the other film
claims about him.
In the film, actress/singer Mary Griffin performs the song "Knock on Wood" while wearing an outfit strikingly
similar to that which disco singer Amii Stewart wore in the video to "Knock On Wood" in 1979. Although it is
obvious that Griffin is portraying Stewart, the credits at the end of the movie have Griffin's character listed only as
Disco Star.

Critical reaction
54 opened at #4 in its opening weekend (8/28-30) with $6,611,532 behind Blade, There's Something About Mary,
and Saving Private Ryan.
[4]
The studio cut of the film received almost universally middling-to-poor reviews and was a box office
disappointment, grossing $16 million on an estimated budget of $13 million. Top-billed Myers, in his first serious
dramatic role —having first garnered fame through comedy—garnered some of the film's only positive
word-of-mouth. That generated brief buzz that his performance would land him among those nominated for an
Academy Award (though he ultimately was not nominated). Many critics were particularly disappointed with the
film's fictional characters and storyline, believing that Studio 54's notorious, real-life past should have been explored
more in detail and with better realism. Critical response to the Director's cut, which has gained a fair amount of cult
status, is positive.
The film currently holds a 13% 'Rotten' rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with the consensus "Poor plot development and
slow pacing keep 54 from capturing the energy of its legendary namesake."
[5]
The film was nominated for two Razzie Awards, including Worst Actor for Ryan Phillippe and Worst Supporting
Actress for Ellen Albertini Dow.
Home media
The DVD release features some additional and alternate scenes that were not included in the theatrical release. The
Director's cut runs 105 minutes, 12 minutes of which are not in the studio's DVD release.

Awards for gay adult video were a part of the AVN awards from the 1986 ceremony through the 1998 ceremony.
The increasing number of categories made the show unwieldy and for the 1999 ceremony AVN Magazine began
hosting the GayVN Awards, an annual adult movie award event for gay adult video.
Awards often go to consistent advertisers in AVN.

Award categories
AVN Awards Show, Hard Rock Hotel.
In order to be eligible for a given year's AVN Awards, a title must have
been released between October 1 of two years before and September
30 of one year before, and it must be available either from at least 10
wholesale or at least 100 retail outlets by the deadline of September 30
of the preceding year.
The award, which was redesigned in 2000, is named Woody and now
appears as a transparent rectangular Lucite block with an engraved
stylized male and female embracing. The base of the award is dark and
contains lettering with year, category description and winner's name or
film title.
In 1998 and 1999, AVN had a Safe Sex Award category, which was discontinued.
[5]
In 2007, AVN decided to
rename the "AVN Crossover Star of the Year Award" to "Jenna Jameson Crossover Star of the Year Award" to
honor Jenna Jameson.

Membership
285 producers, distributors, theater owners, cable programmers and videocassette manufacturers in the adult film business
[1]
The Adult Film Association of America (AFAA) was the first American association of pornographic film
producers. It fought against censorship laws, attempted to defend the industry against prosecution for obscenity, and
held an annual adult film awards ceremony.
It was founded in 1969 in Kansas City, with Sam Chernoff of Astro-Jemco Film Co. as the first president. Other
notable presidents included film producer David F. Friedman, elected the third president in 1971, and re-elected four
times before becoming Chairman of the Board, and erotic actress and magazine publisher Gloria Leonard, who
became president in 1986.
[3]
It held adult film awards ceremonies for 10 years during the Golden Age of Porn. The first awards ceremony was
held July 14, 1977 at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles while religious protesters picketed outside,
[4]
as they
would several years thereafter.
[1][5][6][7][8][9][10]
"These feverish protesters are such a familiar part of the ritual, they
really should be listed in the program," sex news magazine Cheri stated after the 1983 awards.
[11]
By February 1992 the tables were turned – association members "picketed the Public Forum on Pornography
sponsored by religious groups who hope to institute morality codes back into all movies made."
[2]
Pornographic actress Marilyn Chambers presented the very first award for best erotic motion picture to the L.
Sultana production of The Opening of Misty Beethoven, while runner-up was Count the Ways, produced by Virginia
Ann Perry.
[4]
Jennifer Welles and Jamie Gillis were the first winners in the best actress and best actor categories.
Pornographic actor John Holmes told the crowd at the first year's awards, "In the not-too-far distant future we will
proudly say that we were pioneers."
[4]
Retroactive awards of merit were also given to five movies considered best from 1955 to 1975: Tonight for Sure, Not
Tonight, Henry! Trader Hornee and Sometime Sweet Susan. Deep Throat was also honored as one of the
top-grossing of all movies, including mainstream films, of 1972. Board chairman Friedman said the AFAA was
Adult Film Association of America
29
"much too busy fighting legal battles" in the early days to hold awards ceremonies, so these special awards were
intended to make up for not having presented them in the past.
[4]
For a time the most notable erotic film awards were those of the AFAA, considered to be "the closest thing the porn
world's got to filmdom's Oscar derby."
[10]
Many stars would arrive in chauffeur-driven limousines while some would
vie for attention by arriving in a four-horse carriage, a Roman chariot, a horse or even an elephant.
[12]
The third
annual awards "drew a festive crowd of some 600 porn-people plus several hundred hard-core fans to the Hollywood
Palladium."
[7]
Subsequent awards shows even attracted celebrities such as The Godfather director Francis Ford
Coppola,
[10][13]
singer Stephen Bishop
[13]
and gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson
[14]
to be part of the audience
and comedian Jackie Gayle
[13]
and singer Jaye P. Morgan of The Gong Show to be part of evening's
entertainment.
[12]
The fifth and eighth awards ceremonies were videotaped and offered to cable and subscription
television
[1][12]
and for sale on VHS cassettes while the seventh was taped for an August 1983 broadcast on Playboy
TV. Other awards during the porno chic era included Adam Film World's X-Caliber awards, first given out in 1975
and based on votes of fans,
[4]
Hustler magazine's Erotic Movie Awards, first presented in 1977 and the Critics Adult
Film Awards, bestowed by a New York-based group of East Coast adult sex film critics from 1981 to 1987.
By the third awards ceremony in 1980, although the concept was seen as positive, adult entertainment magazine
Genesis reported they were "beginning to generate as much controversy as the regular Academy Awards, or
more."
[8]
While it seemed "politicking" gave the Best Film award to Legend of Lady Blue over heavy favorites Sex
World and Take Off, the "most glaring lack of any validity" was shown by giving the best actor award to Aldo Ray.
"The Erotica Awards are supposed to be presented to sex-film performers who both 'act' well and 'perform' well. In
Sweet Savage, not only did Aldo Ray not 'act' particularly well—his part was simply gratuitous...he never even
performed at all. The fact is he never even took his clothes off, nor did he show up to receive his award."
[8]
Aside
from that, Sweet Savage was released "well into 1979" and the films nominated were supposed to have been released
in 1978, leaving the impression the AFAA gave him the award to "capitalize on his name and to obtain more media
coverage."
[8]
Adam Film World Guide, however, reported the following year's awards, which were presented in July
1981, "covered films released from mid-1980 to the middle of '81",
[12]
which could have meant Sweet Savage was
eligible for awards in 1979 if the same time frame was considered. Meanwhile, Adam Film World noted Ray's award
"was not surprising considering that one of the announced functions of the aFAA and its annual awards is to upgrade
the image of the adult film industry in the public eye."
[7]
Originally the Erotica Awards were determined by vote of the "association's membership of more than 700
producers, distributors and theater operators."
[12]
However, in later years the AFAA ceremony was increasingly
accused of bias, with a "belief among some that the West Coast producers were controlling what films received the
awards" after Amanda By Night was passed over for best film at the 1981 awards.
[1]
Starting with the awards
presented in 1982, the AFAA decided to appoint an independent jury of three persons not associated with the adult
film industry to make the final choices from the five finalists in each category.
[1]
Jurors subsequently included an
assortment of men and women such as a sexologist,
[15]
author Robert Rimmer
[1]
and journalists such as Brendan Gill
of The New Yorker
[10]
and other publications including Daily Variety, Playboy, USA Today and the Los Angeles
Herald Examiner.
[3][16]
However, criticism continued, especially for the best erotic scene victory of Virginia in 1984, which led to the
founding of the X-Rated Critics Organization and its Heart-On Awards.
[1][17]
The role of adult film awards has been
mostly supplanted by the AVN Awards, which also launched in 1984.
With the advent of pornography on video, in early 1986 the AFAA renamed itself Adult Film and Video
Association of America (AFVAA)
[14]
and added a new award category, best adult video. The 10th annual awards,
held at the Sheraton Premiere Hotel in Los Angeles on June 29, 1986, were the last.
The association changed its name again in 1987 to the Adult Video Association (AVA).
[18][19]
No awards were
given for 1987.
[20]
Instead, in mid-1988 they were replaced by an annual Night of the Stars dinner-dance and legal
fundraiser,
[21]
the fifth of which it held in June 1992 with more than 500 people in attendance, the association's
Adult Film Association of America
30
biggest show ever.
[2]
Lifetime Achievement Awards were presented at the Night of the Stars, however, film awards
were discontinued.
In October 1992, Video Vixens Trading Cards for collectors were released with part of the profits going to the AVA.
That same month, the AVA and Free Speech Legal Defense Fund, which had been organized in 1991, unified to
create a new umbrella organization, the Free Speech Coalition (FSC).
[2][22]
Its role as the trade association of the
adult entertainment industry was taken over by the FSC, which acknowledges the AFAA as its first ancestor.

Credo
The AFAA had a credo that "recognized the responsibilities of adult filmmakers to the general public":
[24]
1. That
films of adult subject matter will be produced for and exhibited to adult audiences and that persons not of legal age
will not be admitted. 2. That the definition of an "adult" is that designation set by the constituted authorities of the
community but in no event any persons under the age of 18 years. 3. That we will produce and exhibit only films that
are in conformity with the Free Speech Provisions of the Constitution of the United States of America. 4. That we
will respect the privacy of the general public in our advertising and public displays. 5. That we in no manner will
condone, produce or exhibit child pornography in any form.
Erotic Film Awards
The AFAA awards were called the Erotic Film Awards and the trophy, known as the Erotica Award,
[16]
was a
golden statuette "in the form of a shapely nude holding high a rampant spear in an obvious attitude of erotic
excitement."

Notes
1  Adam Film World recorded the winner of this category in 1979 as having been a tie between Roger Caine and
John Seeman.
[7]
Cinema-X magazine recorded Roger Caine as the sole winner.
[26]
2  This award was called "Best Foreign Language Film" at the 1977 and 1981 awards shows. It was not awarded
after 1981.</ref>
3  IMDb states this movie, while advertised as the first X-rated movie made in Russia, was actually made in the
U.S.
[34]
4  Adam Film World reported both Seven Into Snowy as winner of "Best Musical Score" and also Get Your Nose Out
Of My Pantyhose won "Best Original Musical Score", a different award,
[5]
in 1978. However, the AFAA's seventh
and eighth annual programs, which list previous years' winners, make no mention of Get Your Nose Out of My
Pantyhose or any separate "Original" score award. As well, IMDb states "Get Your Nose Out of My Pantyhose" is
not a movie, but a song from a movie called Breaker Beauties, so Adam Film World's report of an "Original" score
award may be erroneous.
5  The official 8th Annual AFAA Erotic Film Awards program lists both songs as having won the award,
[25]
however Jim Holliday's Only the Best book only mentions "With You" from Roommates as winning.
[24]
Cheri
magazine's coverage of the awards doesn't mention the category at all.
[10]
6  This award was called "Best Production Values" at the 1979 and 1980 awards shows.
[9][16][25]
Adult Film Association of America
48
7  Adam Film World coverage
[4]
of the first Erotica Awards listed Not Tonight, Henry! as having won "Best Adult
Film 1961-65" and Tonight For Sure as having won "Best Adult Film 1955-60". However, Not Tonight, Henry!
premiered Dec. 30, 1960
[35]
in Los Angeles, while Tonight For Sure premiered in L.A., Oct. 25, 1962,
[35]
so it's
likely this was an error by the magazine. Jim Holliday's book, Only the Best, lists the movies as having won in the
correct time frames.

Home video releases
As of October 2011, Travel Channel has released five collections of the series on DVD with a sixth collection to be
released on November 29, 2011. As of September 2010, only collections 1-4 are available to view on Netflix's
"Watch Instantly" feature, with later seasons previously available but removed without explanation. Despite that the
series has been shot mostly with high definition video cameras, it is not available for purchase in high definition
format like Blu-ray Disc. However, many episodes from Collection 4 and later can be streamed from Netflix in high
definition. ( Travel Channel HD was launched in Jan. 2008, but repeat episodes from early 2008, such as New
Orleans, are shown in zoomed SD. Tokyo appears to have a mixture of SD and HD scenes, so it seems likely that
production shifted gradually to HD during 2008, due to the launch of Travel Channel HD. This would also explain
why some of Collection 4 is streamed in HD from Netflix, but not all. )

Plot
Dangerfield plays Jake Puloski, a comedic and friendly prison warden who runs a privately owned prison for
white-collar criminals and less serious offenders. The trouble starts when Puloski's plans for renovating his rundown
prison are ruined by his superior, Eli Rockwood (Randy Quaid), a greedy businessman who inherited the prison from
his deceased parents, who rejects his budget request. Rockwood also informs Puloski that his contract as prison
warden will not be renewed, which means that Puloski will be forced to retire in two months. This comes at the same
time that Rockwood is in the midst of selling his company to the very wealthy Gloria Beaumont (Kirstie Alley).
Without the funds for a proper remodeling, Puloski decides to approach the problem by allowing a group of
prisoners, Mile-Away (Phill LaMarr), Next-Week(Paul Rodriguez), Jerk-Off (Marty Belafsky), and Ears (Joe
Nipote), to leave the prison to burgle a sporting goods store owned by Rockwood (on the condition that they are
Back by Midnight

"back by midnight" before the guard Smitty (Tony Cox) makes his rounds).
The plan meets many surprises however, complicating Jake's plan, including excitable store clerk Lance (Kevin
West) and a sadistic security guard (Gilbert Gottfried) with his vicious guard dog named Princess.
As Jake distracts Smitty, the four bungling prisoners break into the store, distract the store's guard dog Princess with
the prison's guard dog whom they had fed viagra to earlier that night, and make off with their stolen gym equipment,
but on the way back to the prison one of their truck tires goes flat. As Ears and Jerk-Off look for a tire jack in a farm
house, Next-Week and Mile-Away try to fast-talk their way past Sheriff Jack Hubbard (Harland Williams), who it
turns out is an old school chum of Mile-Away. Jerk-Off finds love with the farmer's sheep, alerting farmer Baxter
(Blake Clark), who comes out with a shotgun, sending Jerk-Off and Ears running away with no tire jack. As Sheriff
Jack Hubbard and Mile-Away reminisce, Next-Week changes the truck tire with the tire jack Sheriff Hubbard loaned
them. After picking up Ears and Jerk-Off from the side of the road, the four convicts head back to the prison.
The next morning, the store security guard discovers that all the store's exercise equipment has been stolen, and his
beloved dog Princess was "a slut". Sheriff Hubbard inspects the crime scene, promising Rockwood that he will catch
the culprits. The security guard informs them that one of the security cameras was still operational and they may
have footage of the culprits; however when they view it they find it has only footage of the two guard dogs.
At the prison, the convicts are ecstatic with their new equipment and Jake feels very proud of himself. His team of
burglars tells Jake that they think they should get the other items the prison needs by robbing the other fifteen stores
owned by Rockwood in the area, justifying it because Rockwood had been fiddling with their budget in the first
place. Jake agrees to the plan since he has only two months left of his contract anyway.
As Jake distracts Smitty at the strip clubs, Ears, Jerk-Off, Mile-Away, and Next-Week rob Rockwood's other stores
of their cash to pay for the renovations to the prison. Rockwood meets with Mrs. Beaumont to discuss their merger,
while Mrs. Beaumont's pet monkey makes quick work of destroying Rockwood's office.
Jake throws a Valentine's dance at the prison, inviting the wives and girlfriends of the convicts, where Next-Week
introduces his girlfriend (Lisa Arturo) and her friend Veronica (Yeardly Smith) to his cousin Carlos (Jsu Garcia).
Veronica figures out that the convicts stole money from Rockwood to afford all the changes to the prison and Carlos
has to kiss her to keep her quiet. Inside the dance, a riot breaks out due to another inmate stealing Jerk-Off's
inflatable date, resulting in a scuffle (with some brief female nudity), and a fistfight between the inmates.
At the police station, Sheriff Hubbard discovers that a shoe left by Jerk-Off at the farm belongs to a prisoner uniform
at Rockwood's prison. He goes to investigate, visiting Mile-Away and after a scene of interrogation Sheriff Hubbard
leaves. Mile-Away warns Jake and Jake tells him to spread the word that there will be no more burglary jobs.
Rockwood, however, has other plans. Along with Sheriff Hubbard, he creates a trap for the burglars in the form of a
big weekend sale. The convicts read about the sale and decide to pull one last job to have some cash for themselves
once they re-enter society. But Carlos demands to be a part of the job because he had to kiss Veronica to keep her
quiet about the jobs, leaving Jerk-Off out of the job.
At the store, Ears drills into the safe but Next-Week mistakenly leaves his cousin Carlos to roam. Carlos breaks into
jewelry cases trying to take them but trips the alarm. Upon opening the safe, they find the safe is empty, then run
outside and are caught by Sheriff Hubbard and the rest of the police department. Mile-Away escapes in the van to
warn Jake. Mile-Away admits that they pulled one last job and Jake admits that Rockwood was firing him.
Jerk-Off and Mile-Away enter the sheriff's department disguised as guards and manage to free Ears, Carlos, and
Next-Week, escaping in the prison van, and entering a high-speed chase with Mile-Away riding with Sheriff
Hubbard chasing the other burglars.
Jake shows up at Rockwood's house trying to confess to the masterminding the burglaries but Sheriff Hubbard calls
Rockwood from the road, hot on the burglars' trail. Rockwood decides to chase down the burglars himself.
Rockwood grabs a gun and has Jake ride with him, who are joined by Mrs. Beaumont, who has an odd attraction to
criminals and high speed chases.
Back by Midnight
70
The chase ends at the prison where Ears, Jerk-Off, Next-Week, and Carlos zoom through the gate pretending to be
prison laundry returning. Rockwood follows them in and notices the changes to the prison and realizes Jake
masterminded the robberies. Rockwood says he will turn Jake in until Mrs. Beaumont comes into the prison and tells
Rockwood how much she loves how well he treats the prisoners. Mrs. Beaumont says after seeing how he runs his
prisons she definitely wants to merge her company with his and have Jake oversee all the prisons. Jake agrees and
tells his gang that they need to stop the robberies permanently.
A year later Jake narrates, saying he retired and finally took the fishing trip he and Smitty had always talked about.
Carlos and Next-Week were released first and were greeted by their women Veronica and Next-Week's girlfriend.
Ears was released and led a decent life until he cheated on a game show using his super hearing and won a million
dollars. Jerk-Off was married to his inflatable girlfriend and started a family; they had an inflatable baby boy.
Mile-Away became Sheriff Hubbard's deputy and became a great crime fighting duo "when they weren't chasing
criminals they were chasing each other."

Bayside is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens. Bayside is an upper-middle-class
neighborhood with many wealthy residents. When analyzing comparable detached homes throughout the United
States, CNN Money ranked Bayside as one of the most expensive housing markets nationally.
[1]
Despite its large
housing stock of free-standing homes, it nationally ranks high to very high in population density.
[2][3][4]
These
homes give the neighborhood a similar feel to other wealthy Queens neighborhoods such as Douglaston and Little
Neck. The neighborhood is part of Queens Community Board 11.
[5]
History
Bayside's history dates back to 2000 B.C., when the Matinecock Native American tribe first settled there. In the late
17th century, the area was settled by English colonists. By the middle of the 18th century, early settlers left their
homes in Flushing and developed a farming community, Bay Side. During the Revolutionary War, the Bayside-Little
Neck area suffered from raids by whaleboatmen from the Connecticut shores. In the 19th century Bayside was still
mostly farmland. Middle 20th century urban sprawl in New York City, with the help of more convenient and
accessible transportation, led to its development.
During the 1920s, many actors and actresses, such as Rudolph Valentino, lived in Bayside. At the end of the 19th
and beginning of the 20th century Bayside saw an influx of people associated with the theater and movie industries.
The town was then established as a colony for stage and screen stars. When rumors ran rampant through the acting
community that Bayside would be the location of a new movie and production studio, many actors, of both sexes,
purchased homes in anticipation of an easy commute to the studio. However, this rumored studio never materialized.
When Hollywood emerged as the capital of the movie industry during the 1920s, many actors left Bayside to pursue
careers in California.

Bayside, Queens

Bayside was the site of a murder by Peter Hains, a prominent army officer, abetted by his brother, sea novelist
Thornton Jenkins Hains, who gunned down prominent editor William Annis at his yacht club. The so-called "Regatta
Murder" led to a widely publicized trial at the Flushing County Courthouse. Peter Hains was convicted of
manslaughter and sentenced to eight years at Sing Sing, while Thornton Hains was acquitted.
[7]
Organized crime
Bayside remains one of the safest and wealthiest neighborhoods in the borough of Queens. However, Bayside has
been setting to several organized crime incidents.
Michael Pappadio, of Bayside, was a mobster who worked for the Lucchese crime family in secrecy from his wife.
He managed the Lucchese family’s interests in the Garment District of Manhattan. In 1989, upon a falling out with
his superiors, he was murdered at an outer-borough bagel shop called the Crown Bagel. His wife subsequently
reported Michael as missing. Three years later the FBI presented her with information about his death and his life in
organized crime.
[8][9]
In April 2002, Gambino crime family associate Darren D’Amico was shot in the leg outside of the Cafe on the Green
restaurant in Bayside. It is speculated that Bonanno crime family associate Randolph Pizzolo was responsible for the
crime. He was subsequently murdered on a hit called by Vincent "Vinny Gorgeous" Basciano. Basciano is now
serving life in prison without parole.
[10][11][12][13]
In June 2011, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown took down a prescription drug ring that sold more than
25,000 Vicodin tablets a week to street level users. Joseph Pisicchio, of Bayside, was one of the top names among
defendants.
[14]
Location, boundaries, and transportation
Throgs Neck Bridge between the Bronx and
Queens
Bayside is bordered by the Bronx to the north across the Long Island
Sound and Douglas Manor across the Little Neck Bay. The eastern
land border is the Cross Island Parkway and Douglaston; the western is
Francis Lewis Boulevard/Utopia Parkway and Auburndale; the
southern is Union Turnpike and Queens Village. The neighborhood of
Bayside Hills is itself a newer subdivision within Bayside.
Bay Terrace is a garden apartment community located in the north
section of the neighborhood; an adjacent open-air shopping center was
named after the community. The northern section of Bay Terrace also
has a view of the Throgs Neck Bridge, which leads to The Bronx.
Bayside's major highways include the Long Island Expressway,
Clearview Expressway, and the Cross Island Parkway. The north end
of the Brooklyn-Queens Greenway is in Little Bay Park, under the Throgs Neck Bridge approaches, with convenient
connection to the Utopia Parkway bicycle lane. It lies between Cross Island Parkway and Little Neck Bay,
connecting Bayside to Douglaston, Queens and Alley Pond Park, and eventually to central Queens and Coney Island,
Brooklyn.
Bayside is connected to Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan, other areas of Queens, and Long Island by the Long
Island Rail Road's Port Washington Branch at the Bayside station. Many also choose to take the 7 train of the New
York City subway service in nearby Flushing.
As the MTA is expanding the #7 IRT Flushing Line westward from Queens and deeper into Manhattan, the 2012
fiscal year Community District Needs of Queens report suggests extending the line eastward in order to relieve
congestion in Downtown Flushing. The report states: "It's time for residents and businesses of East Flushing,
Bayside, Queens
73
Bayside, and maybe some parts of Douglaston to share in freeing Downtown Flushing from this growing
problem."
[15]
Francis Lewis Boulevard is a major street notorious for drag racing, which resulted in several fatalities to drivers and
pedestrians over the years.
[16]
Bayside Gables
Bayside Gables is a privately owned gated community located near the Bay Terrace shopping center and the Little
Neck Bay. Arguably one of the wealthiest areas in Queens (along with Malba, Holliswood, Jamaica Estates, and
Douglaston Manor), homes in this community can sell for as high as $1.5- to $4-million dollars.
Bayside Hills
Bayside Hills is a subdivision of Bayside's south side, bordered by Northern Boulevard, the Long Island Expressway,
the Clearview Expressway, and Springfield Boulevard. The homes in Bayside Hills have more value and are more
upscale, many of which were built by Gross Morton.
[17]
Bayside Hills is known for its thirty three street malls and accents, especially the gatehouse (Bell Boulevard at 48th
street), gateposts (48th Avenue from 216th Street) and Bayside Hills Street Clock (Bell Boulevard and 214th
Street).
[18]
The Victorian style street clock sits upon the Leo Green Clock Mall, dedicated to the local civic activist.
Further east, Captain William C Dermody Triangle Park (48 Avenue and 216 Street) memorializes Dermody's
abolitionism and service in the Civil War, leading him to be mortally wounded at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court
House.
[19]
Much of the public green space is maintained by the NYC Parks Department and the Bayside Hills Civic
Association.
The zip code 11364 is shared with Oakland Gardens, Queens
Demographics
Local data from the Census Bureau's American Community Survey (based on samples from 2005 to 2009) shows
that the demographics of Bayside changes significantly from area to area. For example the pocket bordered by the
Clearview Expressway to the west, Northern Boulevard to the north, Bell Boulevard to the east, and 48th avenue to
the south is 40% Asian, 26% Black, 21% Hispanic, and 13% White. Other areas can be up to 71% majority White,
mostly inhabited by those of Italian, Greek, and Irish descent.

After completing drug rehab and leaving Quohog, a purpose-seeking Brian moves to Los Angeles, California to live

producer willing to purchase his scripts and to make weeks end he takes menial jobs including be a waiter at elite
Hollywood parties and washing cars (though he initially lies about his success to his family about his progress).
Brian gets a break when Jasper connects him with an independent film producer who offers a director role; however,
Brian soon discovers that the offer more specifically is the directing of pornographic films. Although he is initially
hesitant, Brian accepts the offer.
Meanwhile, the Griffins have Stewie auditions for Kids Say the Darndest Things to gain a free trip to Los Angeles in
order to see Brian (although Stewie has the motive of using this opportunity to unleash a mass hypnosis device on
national television; a plot which inevitably fails). Stewie makes the audition and the family travels to Los Angeles
where they meet Brian for lunch. Brian, who now has a job at being a director, offers to invite them to watch him
direct on the film set (though at the time he is unaware of adult genre involved).
Later, when the family tries to visit Brian's set, a shamed and startled Brian has security remove them from the set
before they find out his secret. Shortly afterwards, he learns from his cousin Jasper the he has received a directing

Chappelle's Show was an American sketch comedy television series created by comedians Dave Chappelle and Neal
Brennan, with Chappelle hosting the show as well as starring in various sketches. Chappelle, Brennan and Michele
Armour were the show's executive producers. The series premiered on January 22, 2003, on the American cable
television network Comedy Central. The show ran for two complete seasons and a third, truncated season (dubbed
"The Lost Episodes").
After numerous delays, production of the third season of the show was abruptly ended when Chappelle left the show.
Three episodes were compiled from the completed work and these episodes aired from July 9 to July 23, 2006.
Re-runs frequently air on Comedy Central and around the world on MTV in Germany, Comedy Central in Brazil,
The Comedy Network in Canada, The Comedy Channel and 7mate in Australia and FX in the United Kingdom.
Chappelle's Show was also shown on WGN America and was syndicated to various television stations across the
U.S. including MyNetworkTV. TV Guide ranked it #31 on their list of "TV's Top 100 Shows".
Format
The show opens with Chappelle being introduced over the instrumental from the song "Hip-Hop", from the album
Let's Get Free by Dead Prez. Chappelle performs a short stand up in front of a live audience, which serves to
introduce the upcoming sketch. The focus then shifts to a prerecorded sketch that appears on a screen that is to
Chappelle's left (or right for the first episode). The show is notorious for its handling of the topic of sexuality and
Chappelle's casual usage of racial epithets, categorizing the show as a racial comedy. The show also handles such
topics as prostitution, the entertainment industry, gun violence, numerous drug references (particularly marijuana,
Chappelle's Show
86
alcohol, PCP, Crystal Meth and crack cocaine) and music, all performed in a comedic fashion with a touch of
antagonism. The TV-MA, TV-14 rated show is controversial in its use of young child actors for some sketches. The
show ends with a musical performance by a hip hop or soul artist.

Episodes
There have been three seasons of Chappelle's Show produced, totaling 28 episodes. There have also been four
"mixtapes" and one "music jump-off" episode, highlighting the best sketches and musical acts of each season,
respectively. Combined, this makes 33 complete episodes.
Notable sketches
Rather than acting out sketches in front of a live studio audience, the sketches were prerecorded with the audience
reaction usually used in lieu of a laugh track. According to Neal Brennan in Season 2 DVD commentary, for the
"Dude's Night Out" sketch, the production team edited in pre-recorded laughs due to the lack of reaction from the
audience.
[2]
Many of the sketches were heavily ad-libbed, most notably The Mad Real World sketch.
• A Moment in the Life of Lil' Jon – Chappelle plays rapper/producer Lil' Jon doing normal, everyday tasks, with
a vocabulary consisting of almost nothing but the words 'Yeah!', 'WHAT?!', and 'O-kay!' The real Lil' Jon
appeared in one sketch opposite Chappelle's character, with Lil' Jon speaking in an excessively dignified accent.
The rapper credited the sketch with increasing his visibility.
[3]
Entertainment Weekly put it on its
end-of-the-decade, "best-of" list, saying, " We could have filled this list with 100 reasons we miss Chappelle's
Show, but the biggest one would have to be his riotous celebrity impressions."
[4]
• Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories – Charlie Murphy (who also wrote the sketches) retells his
encounters with 1980s celebrities, the most popular being the Rick James story, which is widely regarded as
Chappelle's magnum opus. The sketch features Murphy as himself and Chappelle as James, including incidents
such as James slapping Murphy, interspersed with scenes of the present-day Rick James (portrayed by James
Chappelle's Show
87
himself), trying to cover up for his past behavior, saying, "Cocaine's a hell of a drug."
[5]
The sketch spawned one
of the show's popular catchphrases, "I'm Rick James, bitch!", which Chappelle, as James, repeatedly declares. The
sketch attained even greater public attention when, in 2005, a candidate for city council in Hattiesburg,
Mississippi, also named Rick James but unrelated to the singer, had many of his "Vote Rick James" campaign
signs defaced by writing "Vote Rick James bitch!" or stolen by fans of the sketch.
[6][7]
The other "True
Hollywood Story" depicted Murphy and his crew playing a pickup game of basketball against Prince.
• Frontline – A spoof of the PBS series Frontline. The first Frontline sketch, Blind Supremacy, featured the life of
Clayton Bigsby (played by Chappelle), a biography of a blind white supremacist who is not aware that he is
actually a black man. This sketch was part of the first episode and garnered attention for its extensive use of the
word "nigger" (mostly spoken by Chappelle's character).
[8]
The sketch has been compared to the iconic Saturday
Night Live sketch from 1975 featuring Chevy Chase and Richard Pryor which received similar reactions for its
use of the word.
[9]
Other Frontline sketches featured stories of racist animal actors and gay versions of everything
from the DMV to the KKK.
• Racial Draft – A spoof of the NFL Draft which saw various celebrities such as Tiger Woods (Chappelle) and the
Wu Tang Clan (playing themselves) being "drafted" into various "races" such as white, black, Jewish, Hispanic,
and Asian, based on their perceived ethnicity or cultural leanings. Chappelle also played the white representative
while rapper Mos Def played the black representative.
• WacArnold's – Chappelle gets a job as a young man at a fast food restaurant that portrays itself as providing a
community service by offering jobs to disenfranchised, poor youth. A scene-by-scene mock of a 1990
McDonald's commercial is followed by Chappelle slowly realizing the job is embarrassing and he doesn't make
enough money to support his family. He gets robbed and harassed on his way to work. During one encounter, a
thug (played by Donnell Rawlings) quips, "Hey Calvin! It's a fine line between fries and shakes!" before he
breaks into song, "The leanest burger in the world, could be the meanest burger in the world, if you cook it that
way!". He follows by stating he has to "stop smoking this shit here" as his friends break out in laughter. The song
is a remake of a 1971 song by The Persuaders (also covered by The Pretenders in 1983) "It's a Thin Line Between
Love and Hate".
• Wayne Brady's Show – After Dave Chappelle quits the show in an opening segment that coincidentally mirrored
the contract negotiations for the aborted third season, Wayne Brady (portraying himself) takes over as host and is
asked to emcee the remaining episodes of the series since Chappelle had already filmed the remaining sketches.
Regretting the decision to leave the show, Chappelle returns and confronts Brady. The ensuing confrontation
leads to the airing of a flashback to a night of misadventures involving the two that portrays Brady (contrary to his
friendly public image) as a murderous, pimping and seriously disturbed psychopath in the mold of Denzel
Washington's character Alonzo Harris from the film Training Day.
[10]
• When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong – A documentary style sketch which serves as a cautionary tale about when
not to "keep it real" (be completely honest). The sketch depicts events in which a character is just minding their
business until someone else says or does something that the first character doesn't like. The character is given a
choice: ignore the alleged provocation, or "keep it real" (get confrontational and be antagonistic with whomever
provoked them), with the character going with the latter, all the while boasting about how they "keep it real".
Eventually the character's decision backfires severely on them, thus ruining their life, while the person who
provoked them is having the time of their life, and the character's friends shunning the character's choice to "keep
it real".

Recurring characters
• Tron Carter (played by Chappelle) – a cocaine dealer originally shown in a sketch where he has received
reparations for slavery and due to a "hot hand in a dice game" becomes the richest man in America. When asked
about the infant he carts around in a stroller, Tron says, "I just bought this baby cash." He is also one of the
roommates in The Mad Real World. Later in a spoof of Law & Order, Tron gets the same lenient treatment as
those involved in white-collar crime, invoking the "fif" in response to every question. Tron also appeared in the
first episode of Season 3 in a sketch in which he described an altercation with Method Man and was tortured by
the methods described in the song "Method Man" from Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). In the reparations
episode he is shown gambling in Brooklyn and described as a Harlem resident, but in another episode he is shown
in his house on "Everglade Boulevard" bagging up cocaine and watching the fictitious R. Kelly music video "Piss
On You" and he receives a phone call from the Dade County Police Department, suggesting he lives in Miami.
• Negrodamus (played by Paul Mooney) – a black prophet and fortune teller (a satire of Nostradamus). In the
sketch, people (mostly white) ask him various questions such as "Negrodamus, why do white people love Wayne
Brady so much?" to which he replies "White people love Wayne Brady because he makes...Bryant Gumbel look
like Malcolm X." (This clip was later shown as a drug hallucination in the Wayne Brady sketch.)
• Tyrone Biggums (played by Chappelle) – A squeaky-voiced crack addict recognized by his white, blistered lips
and constant scratching. His first appearance was in the second episode of Season 1. He is often heard saying "I
smoke rocks" and "SHAZAM!" Tyrone enjoys eating peanut butter and crack sandwiches, and was the
spokesman for "Red Balls," an energy drink made from cocaine. He also made an appearance in a Fear Factor
spoof sketch on the Wayne Brady's Show episode, wherein he was exceptionally willing to do gross challenges,
and was nonreactive to the hot coals underneath his feet, which lit his big toenail on fire (the same fire from
which he would later light a cigarette).
• Andy "Silky" Johnston (played by Chappelle) – A notorious player hater who won the fictitious "Hater of the
Year" award twice (one of which was for calling a bomb threat on the Special Olympics), and who later traveled
back in time to "hate" in the past.
• Chuck Taylor (played by Chappelle) – The lead "white" anchor on the fictitious "News 3", played by Chappelle
in whiteface makeup and a blonde wig. Taylor has appeared in a few sketches, the first of which was the
Reparations sketch from Season 1.
• Leonard Washington (played by Chapelle) – Washington first appeared in the first season sketch Trading
Spouses, wherein he acted as the patriarch of a white family for a month. Notably, when entering rooms
unfamiliar to him, Washington will look out the windows to see if he is being followed. He also expressed his
displeasure that many white families do not use washcloths when taking a shower or bath. One of the only things
that can make Leonard Washington back down is being shot. When asked for his hometown in the World Series
of Dice sketch, Washington replied, "Where I'm from? A little town called none ya goddamn bidness." He has a
wife and a son, T-Mart. He is seemingly unaware of white culture, unknowing of Renée Zellweger (as he stated in
"Trading Spouses" after reading "White People Magazine").
• Ashy Larry (played by Donnell Rawlings) – A shirtless black man with flaky-white skin and chapped lips, who
is always seen wearing a pair of white boxer shorts. He appeared in the World Series of Dice sketch, in one of
Chappelle's daydreams during a boring dinner conversation, and was seen holding Dave Chappelle's 50 million
dollar check in one of the Lost Episodes. "Ashy Larry" is also one of the names Wayne Brady calls the PCP he
gives to Dave in the Wayne Brady sketch. Rawlings briefly reprised his role as Ashy Larry in the sketch comedy
show, In The Flow with Affion Crockett, encountering Chappelle (played by Crockett).
• Robot Dancing Man – Set designer Karl Lake did the Robot dance in random places, including a barbershop,
club, and a courtroom (in a deleted scene). In the sketches, he is generally not acknowledged, despite the
out-of-place behavior, nor does he acknowledge anyone. There have been a few exceptions to this rule. One of
Chappelle's Show
89
them is during the Slow-Motion sketch, in the club, when Dave acknowledges him by saying "The Robot", and
emulating him. Another is when Wayne Brady "takes over" the show, during one of the commercial break intros;
Wayne is looking at Robot Man's moves and then proceeds to dance with him. Also, in the opening theme for
Season 3, Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings have hogtied and taken the place of the two men who start off
the show. Robot Man is seen in the background doing his dance and the harmonica player yells out "Robot, help
us!", but to no avail.
Frequent or notable guest stars
Many guest stars have appeared on the show, including Rick James, RZA, GZA, Damon Dash, Method Man,
Redman, Ice-T, Arsenio Hall, Wayne Brady (only guest to appear on stage), Common, Mos Def, Eddie Griffin,
Susan Sarandon, Q-Tip, Snoop Dogg, Guillermo Díaz, Rashida Jones, Jamie Foxx, Jim Breuer, Carson Daly, Ron
Jeremy, Michael Rapaport and Fear Factor's Joe Rogan. Musical guests who appeared on the show include De La
Soul, Ludacris, Robert Petkoff, Talib Kweli, GZA, Fat Joe, Wyclef Jean, Killer Mike, Big Boi (of OutKast),
Anthony Hamilton, Kanye West, Common, DMX, Busta Rhymes, Slum Village, John Mayer, Questlove, Cee Lo,
Vida Guerra, Erykah Badu, and Lil Jon.
Third season delays
2004
During a June 2004 stand-up performance in Sacramento, California, Chappelle left the stage due to audience
members interrupting the show by shouting "I'm Rick James, bitch!," which became a catchphrase from the popular
"Rick James" sketch. After a few minutes, Chappelle returned and continued by saying "The show is ruining my
life." He stated that he disliked working "20 hours a day" and that the popularity of the show was making it difficult
for him to continue his stand-up career which was "the most important thing" to him. He also told the audience:

You know why my show is good? Because the network officials say you're not smart enough to get what I'm doing, and every day I fight for
you. I tell them how smart you are. Turns out, I was wrong. You people are stupid.
[11]

2005
The third season of Chappelle's Show was scheduled to premiere in February 2005. This date was pushed back to
May 31, 2005, when production fell behind schedule in December 2004 because, according to Comedy Central,
Chappelle had fallen ill with the flu (Chappelle later told Oprah Winfrey that this was untrue and that stress had
caused him to leave).
[12]
On May 4, 2005, just weeks before the anticipated premiere, Comedy Central announced
that Chappelle's Show would not be ready by the announced date and that production had been suspended "until
further notice." No reason for the delay or suspension was given and there was no response from Chappelle.
[13]
One
week later it was reported (most notably by The New York Times and Entertainment Weekly) that Chappelle had
previously flown to South Africa on April 28 to stay in an undisclosed psychiatric facility.
On May 14, Time magazine announced that one of their reporters, Christopher John Farley, had interviewed
Chappelle in South Africa, and that no psychiatric treatments were occurring or necessary. Chappelle returned
shortly thereafter and quelled rumors of psychiatric or substance abuse problems, and emphasized that his trip was a
"spiritual retreat" intended to keep his sense of reality outside the bubble of intense pressure and fame and to keep
his humor fresh.
On July 14, Comedy Central president Doug Herzog announced that Chappelle was welcome back any time, but that
the comedian had said he was still not ready to return. Herzog put a positive spin on negotiations, but conceded that
he did not expect Chappelle's Show to return in 2005. It was also reported in The New York Times that Chappelle
Chappelle's Show
90
explained to Herzog, over dinner, that his success was getting to him and that "he wanted to be wrong again
sometimes, instead of always being right."
In an August 2005 interview with TV Guide, Charlie Murphy said that Chappelle's Show was finished. On December
11, during Comedy Central's Last Laugh '05, a promo for the third season of the show was aired.
2006
On January 24, 2006, the program premiered uncensored on the UK's FX, starting with the second season. The first
episode featured the "Slow Motion" sketch, one of the most famous in the United Kingdom, popularized by the
Internet. It was well received by critics, with outspoken TV critic Gary Naysmith declaring it, "The finest piece of
television I've seen all year."
On February 3, 2006, Chappelle made his first television interview since production ceased on Season 3, on The
Oprah Winfrey Show. He stated that burnout, losing his creative control, and a work environment that was
uncomfortable, were some of the reasons why he left the show. He also stated that he would be open to producing
the remainder of Season 3 (and perhaps a Season 4) only if his demands were met, one of which was to ensure that
half of the proceeds of future Chappelle's Show DVD sales would go to charity. Chappelle claimed that if Comedy
Central aired the unaired episodes, the show would be finished. After that announcement, Comedy Central stopped
advertising the release of the third season for a period of time.
The "Lost Episodes"
In April, the network wrapped up production of the third season, taping the live studio audience segments for three
episodes. In place of Chappelle, the last episodes were co-hosted by regular cast members Charlie Murphy and
Donnell Rawlings. Advertised as the "lost episodes", they began airing on July 9, 2006. The third and final episode
aired on July 23, 2006. The DVD collection of the lost episodes was released on July 25, 2006.
When asked if he felt guilty about carrying on with the lost episodes without Chappelle, Donnell Rawlings replied:

I’m a loyal person, but I know that as a professional, I’ve got to keep my career going, and I felt it was an opportunity for me, for people [to]
see what I do as funny...without knowing what Dave Chappelle’s agenda is, the reasons why he left, with no communication saying, ‘Hey
guys, I feel this way. I would much rather you not be a part of this process.’ Had I had a conversation with Dave like that then there’s a
possibility that I would reconsider me hosting it.
[14]

DVD releases
The DVD sets for Seasons 1 and 2 of Chappelle's Show have sold extremely well since their release. As of 2005, the
first season DVD was the best-selling TV series set of all time,
[15]
beating out other popular shows such as The
Simpsons (the first season of which held the record beforehand), American Dad!, Family Guy, Friends, and Seinfeld.
The episode "Music Jump-Off" which featured Chappelle visiting his old high school, The Duke Ellington School of
the Arts, intercut with previously unaired sketches and musical performances did not make either DVD set.
On October 11, 2005, the first half of the first season was released on UMD.
On May 23, 2006, the first uncensored season was made available for purchase on the iTunes Music Store, and on
June 20, the second uncensored season was also made available on iTunes.
On June 5, 2007, Comedy Central released a compilation DVD titled The Best Of Chappelle's Show which highlights
25 of the most popular sketches in all seasons.
On November 20, 2007, Comedy Central released a boxset with Season One, Season Two, and "The Lost Episodes"
titled Chappelle's Show – The Series Collection.
All box sets were released by Paramount Home Entertainment (under the Comedy Central banner).

segment is "I Was a Teenage Werebear" and was directed and written by Tim Sullivan which parodies Rebel Without
a Cause, Grease and The Twilight Saga and is set in 1962. The third is called "The Diary of Anne Frankenstein" and
was directed and written by Adam Green and spoofs Hitler and The Diary of Anne Frank. The last segment is
"Zom-B-Movie", a spoof of zombie films, and was directed and written by Joe Lynch.

The film is Anthology style taking place at a drive-in theater that is about to close. A worker for the theater, in a
drunken state digs up his deceased wife's body and try to orally rape her, only for her to turn into a zombie and bite

Origin
Adam Rifkin and Tim Sullivan met while working on Detroit Rock City and quickly discovered they shared a mutual
love of horror, monster and drive-in b-movies,
[2]
so they began developing an idea to make an anthology called
Famous Monsters of Filmland,
[3]
loosely based on the magazine they'd grown up reading, and with each short
dedicated to a different era in film. First they came up with names and mock-up posters for each of the mini-features:
The Diary of Anne Frankenstein (1940s), I Was a Teenage Vampire (1950s) Zombie Drive-In (1960s) and Werewolf
of Alcatraz (1970s).
[3]
A deal with Famous Monsters magazine fell through, so it was pitched as a weekly MTV
series to be hosted by KISS frontman Gene Simmons,
[2]
but reality television was beginning to dominate American
airwaves, so the project was shelved.
[2]
A few years later, Rifkin and Sullivan met with directors Adam Green and Joe Lynch at Rainbow Bar and Grill,
[2][4]
and the idea resurfaced. Soon the quartet decided to make Chillerama as an independently produced film, with
Green's studio, Ariescope Pictures, serving as the headquarters of operations. 'Due to estimated budgetary
constraints, Werewolf of Alcatraz was dropped and replaced with Wadzilla;
[3]
I Was a Teenage Vampire was
changed to Teenage Werebear at Lynch's behest;
[3]
Zombie Drive-In became Zom-B-Movie; and a fifth short called
Deathication was added to the drive-in sequence to fake out viewers.
"Wadzilla"
Premise
"Wadzilla" is a spoof on 1950s monster movies and is about "a guy that goes to get his sperm count raised, and it
creates one big sperm that attacks New York City".
[5]
Cast
• Adam Rifkin as Miles Munson
• Sarah Mutch as Louise
• Owen Benjamin as Larry
• Ray Wise as Dr. Weems
• Eric Roberts as General Bukkake
• Miles Dougal as Hobo
• Lin Shaye as Baglady
Production
It was directed and written by Adam Rifkin, who also stars in the film.
[1]
Special effects was done by The Chiodo
Brothers.
[6]
"I Was a Teenage Werebear"
Premise
"I Was a Teenage Werebear" is a musical and a spoof of Rebel Without a Cause, Grease and The Twilight Saga. It is
set in 1962 and is about a "closeted kid who meets these other closeted kids, who when aroused turn into leather
daddy werebears".

•• Adam Robitel as Butch

• Ron Jeremy

as Playbear
• Tim Sullivan as Coach Tuffman
•• Thomas C. Colby-Dog as the Head Wearbear
Production
It was directed and written by Tim Sullivan. Sullivan, who is openly gay, included some gay culture in the
segment.
[7]
The word bear is slang for "big hairy burly men" in the gay community.
[5]
It includes five original rock 'n
roll songs performed by the actors.
[7]
Casting was difficult as straight actors declined the role and many gay actors were not allowed to do the role by their
representatives. Gay porn star Sean Paul Lockhart (Brent Corrigan) was cast as the lead role.
[7]
On November 5,
2010, a scene was filmed on the beach of Sycamore Cove near Malibu.
[1]
Robert Pendergraft provided the practical
effects.

eBay Controversy
In February 2012, writer/director Tim Sullivan began selling copies of the CD soundtrack for I Was a Teenage
Werebear on eBay, and as a bonus he included an autographed 8x10 still (a screen-capture from the film) of star
Sean Paul Lockhart clad in a pair of red briefs. After a few of the auctions had ended, eBay suddenly pulled down
the listing and canceled all finalized orders of the album and 8x10. Initially Sullivan thought it was a mistake, but
when he spoke to people in eBay’s safety & trust department, he was told that the auction included a photo of a man
with "engorged genitalia"
[9]
which they deemed "sexually and morally offensive."
[10][11]
The exact same photo
graced the cover of the May 2011 issue of Odyssey magazine which has sold on eBay without incident,
[12]
and thus
led Sullivan to believe he was being discriminated against because his auction's accompanying text emphasized the
gay content of the production.
[12]
Sullivan was initially told that he could re-list the auction, but only in the
adults-only section of the site that features pornographic material.
[13]
After two failed appeals to reinstate the auction
in the regular site, eBay told him that he couldn't relist it at all, even without the offending photo.
[12]
Rather than
wasting more time, energy and risk further jeopardizing his eBay seller feedback rating, Sullivan decided to give up
and just sell the album and 8x10 directly from his Facebook page, instructing buyers to send him an email with the
header: "Fuck yes, I wanna be sexually and morally offended!"
[14]
Stand-Alone DVD
On September 20, 2012, writer/director Tim Sullivan began selling a stand-alone DVD of his segment, I Was a
Teenage Werebear through his Facebook page.
[15]
Titled Uncut & Hairy Ultimate Edition, this version is limited to
2500 copies and includes an extended version of the short with 5.1 audio and color correction, as well as assortment
of extras which were not included on the Chillerama DVD.
Stage Musical
Soon after Teenage Werebear was released, Tim Sullivan was approached by Sean Abley,
[2]
a producer and
filmmaker who had previously adapted cult films such as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Reefer Madness to
the stage, with the proposition of turning the short film into a full-length stage musical. With Abley set to direct,
Sullivan began writing additional songs and retained several cast and crew members, including Sean Paul Lockhart,
Anton Troy, Tom Colby and producer Adam Rifkin for a production which was originally announced to hit the stage
in September 2012,
[2][14]
though it didn't come to fruition by the projected date.
"The Diary of Anne Frankenstein"

"The Diary of Anne Frankenstein" is a black and white film about Hitler "trying to create the perfect killing machine
to win the war".

Production
Adam Green came into Chillerama with the title of this short already established, but he was encouraged to make it
his own. Green's first decision, given the delicate nature of the subject matter, was that the story had to be
over-the-top and would have to "make a clown out of Hitler"
[4]
to ensure no one would deem it offensive. His second
decision was casting Joel Moore in that role. "If Joel Moore is Hitler," Green said, "there is absolutely no way you
can take this seriously for a second."
[4]
Green then decided to hire a cast of German-speaking actors and, to make Hitler look like even more of a fool, have
Moore speak gibberish throughout the film. Green's idea was to have Moore sound slightly convincing as the film
began to give audiences who don't comprehend German the idea that he was actually speaking the language, but as
the film progresses "his German gets worse and worse,"
[4]
ultimately devolving into total gibberish and random
words and phrases, such as "Oshkosh B'gosh" and "Boba Fett."
[4]
Actress Kristina Klebe and her mother translated
Green's script into German,
[4]
and the cast rehearsed it two ways: first in English to get the rhythms down, and then
in German as it would be shot. For a few key moments, Moore was taught to speak German phrases, albeit not the
ones that are subtitled on the screen. For example, during his song "I Don't Want to Rule the World," instead of the
titular line Moore sings, "Ich habe würmer in meinem schwanz," which means, "I have worms in my penis."
[4]
"Zom-B-Movie"
Premise
"Zom-B-Movie" is a spoof of '70s and '80s zombie films and was directed and written by Joe Lynch.

References to real-life events
Many issues are tackled in this film. Neo-Nazism and abortion are present in the film, as well as references to the
dragging of a black man in Texas and the Columbine High School massacre. Furthermore, the terrorist group at the
beginning of the film is called the Diaper Mafia, in reference to the real-life Trenchcoat Mafia, a high school clique
that the two Columbine shooters were believed to be part-time members of.
The film premiered in the United States shortly following the September 11, 2001 attacks. Most mainstream film
companies that featured the World Trade Center underwent additional editing to avoid distress. Kaufman chose to
leave the World Trade Center in the final cut of the film, arguing that most viewers would be able to see the Twin
Towers without being distressed.
Deleted scenes
Scenes featuring Hugh Hefner during the black and white Newsreel segment of the Toxic Avenger IV were cut prior
to its theatrical release due to a cease-and-desist order from Hefner's lawyers. Hefner was initially fine with
appearing in the film but his lawyers ended up convincing him that he was unfairly coerced into being in the movie.
During the "Special Thanks To" sequence of the final credits, there's a special "No thanks to Hugh Hefner's lawyers"
credit. [1]

(including a fair amount of number-one movies) in a row. These movies

In the winter of 2007, Feldman's new film, Terror Inside, was released after the premiere of the A&E show. It was

[10]
In January 2012, Feldman joined the U.K. television show Dancing on Ice with American pair skater Brooke
Castile,
[11]
and was eliminated in the fourth week of the show.
Personal life
Feldman met Susie Sprague in a nightclub in January 2002. They married on October 30 that year, on the final
episode of the first season of The Surreal Life. The ceremony was co-officiated by a rabbi and by M.C. Hammer, an
ordained minister.
[3]
In October 2009, the couple split after seven years of marriage. Later that month, Sprague filed
for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. She sought full custody of their son, with Feldman having visitation
rights. She also sought spousal support.
[12]
Feldman sought joint custody and wanted the court to block Sprague's
spousal support demand.
[13]
Feldman is an advocate for animal welfare and animal rights and has adhered to a vegetarian diet since he was about
thirteen years old. He appeared with his wife in a PETA ad campaign promoting vegetarianism.
[14]
He was awarded
the Paws of Fame Award by the Wildlife Way Station for his dedication to animal rights.
[15][16]
In an August 2011 interview, Feldman said that Hollywood's biggest secret is pedophilia and that he was a victim of
it in the 1980s.
[17]
Michael Jackson
During February 2005, Feldman was subpoenaed to testify against Michael Jackson in his child molestation trial.
The singer was accused of molesting a 15-year-old boy, believed to be a cancer survivor, who spent time at his
Neverland Ranch and who appeared in Martin Bashir's 2003 British documentary Living With Michael Jackson.
Feldman said, "I started looking at each piece of information, and with that came this sickening realization that there
have been many occurrences in my life and in my relationship to Michael that have created a question of doubt."
[18]
Feldman accused Michael Jackson of damaging his childhood by befriending and then abandoning him. The two
became close after Feldman found fame as a young star in Gremlins, The Goonies, and Stand by Me. Feldman
admitted Jackson helped many children by becoming a friend and mentor – but claimed he did more harm than good,
by dropping kids when he grew bored. The actor said, "He did real damage in my overall life. I was a 12-year-old
Corey Feldman
108
boy who was hurt by his family and ignored by people at school. Michael would sit and talk to me for hours and he
would listen. Then he would get bored. The biggest thing that Michael's done to children is befriending the ones that
are in need and then abandoning them."
[19]
When Jackson died, Feldman dedicated a Los Angeles hospital concert with his rock band Truth Movement to the
singer. Feldman told the crowd Jackson was watching over the show. "I didn't feel I could pull myself together to do
a show tonight," Feldman told People magazine after the show. "It's been really difficult, honestly. I'm all shaken up
right now. I had to do a lot of acting, basically, to get through the last 48 hours". Of the events of the week Jackson
died, said Feldman, "It was shocking, and I think I'm still in shock, to an extent. I don't think I have fully, completely
come to terms with it yet. I have waves and flashes. One moment, I feel fine and I'm myself. Then all of a sudden, it
hits me, and I go, 'Wow, he's really gone.' It's very troubling."

Crank: High Voltage (promoted as Crank 2: High Voltage in some regions and on DVD) is a 2009 American action
film and sequel to the 2006 action film, Crank. The story of the film resumes shortly after the first film left off,
retaining its real-time presentation and adding more special effects. Crank: High Voltage was written and directed by
Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who both wrote and directed the previous film. The film was released in the
United Kingdom on April 15, 2009, two days prior to its North American release date.
Plot
On November 7, 2005, Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) lands in the middle of an intersection after falling out of a
helicopter. He is scooped off the street via snow shovel by a group of Chinese medics and removed from the scene.
Chelios wakes up in a makeshift hospital and sees doctors removing his heart while Johnny Vang (Art Hsu) watches.
The doctors place Chelios's heart in a white cooler with a padlock, and place a clear plastic artificial heart in his
chest. He wakes up three months later and escapes. He notices a yellow battery pack is attached to him and sets out
to find his heart. After a gunfight and interrogation of a thug, he learns the location of Johnny Vang: the Cypress
Social Club.
Crank: High Voltage
113
Chelios calls Doc Miles (Dwight Yoakam), who tells him that he has been fitted with an AbioCor artificial heart.
Miles informs Chelios that once the external battery pack runs out, the internal battery will kick in and he will have
60 minutes before it stops working. While driving Chelios crashes his car which destroys his external battery pack.
After getting directions from a driver, Chelios has the driver use his jumper cables on him. At the club, Chelios loses
Vang but gains the friendship of a prostitute named Ria (Bai Ling) who believes he saved her, who in return directs
him to a strip club where Vang is hiding out. In the club, Chelios comes across Eve (Amy Smart), now a stripper. A
group of Mexican mobsters hanging out there, led by Chico, engage Chelios in a gunfight. Chelios then learns from a
dying mobster that their godfather under moniker "El Hurón" ("The Ferret") wants to kill him, but does not say why.
Outside of the strip club, after single handedly fighting a police squad, Chelios commandeers a police cruiser with
Eve and another stripper. The stripper tells Chelios that he should look for Johnny Vang at the Hollywood Racetrack.
Along the way Chelios meets Venus (Efren Ramirez), who reveals himself to be Kaylo's brother. Wanting his help,
he tells Venus that El Hurón was involved in his brothers death, but escaped. At the horse track Chelios begins
losing energy again. Another call from Doc Miles informs him that friction will cause static electricity to power the
internal battery. Eve shows up and they have sex on the racetrack before Chelios spots Vang and leaves Eve behind.
Vang escapes, and Chelios is about to be apprehended by security when Don Kim picks Chelios up in his limo. He
informs Chelios that there is a leader in the Triads named Poon Dong (David Carradine), who was in need of a heart
transplant and chose Chelios's to replace his. Chelios kills Don Kim and his henchmen upon learning that Don Kim
wishes to return him to Poon Dong for a reward. Meanwhile, Venus calls in Orlando (Reno Wilson) to assist in
tracking down El Hurón.
While searching for Vang, Chelios boards an ambulance and steals a battery pack for his artificial heart. Chelios
exits the ambulance upon seeing Johnny Vang on the street outside and a shootout ensues while before Chelios
subdues Vang. Chelios discovers that Vang's red cooler does not contain his heart and then learns via cellphone from
Doc Miles that his heart has already been transplanted into Poon Dong. Johnny Vang is shot and killed by Chico as
Chelios interrogates him, after which Chelios is knocked unconscious. Doc Miles uses his secretary to locate Poon
Dong to retrieve Chelios's heart.
Chelios is dragged behind a motorboat to an island where El Hurón awaits. It is revealed that El Hurón is, in fact, the
brother of Ricky and Alex Verona, both of whom Chelios killed in the first film. He reveals Ricky Verona's head is
being kept alive long enough to watch El Hurón kill Chelios. El Hurón is about to kill Chelios when Orlando, Venus
and Ria show up, each with their own group of gunfighters. As a gunfight ensues, Verona's head is killed by Chelios.
As Chelios starts to slow down, he climbs a nearby telephone pole and grabs a pair of live wires to recharge. He is
flung off the pole and set on fire by the massive current. While on fire, he kills El Hurón. Chelios walks towards the
camera, giving the middle finger to the audience in the final moment of the film.
As the credits roll by, Doc Miles replaces Chelios's heart, though Chelios has suffered what appears to be fatal burns
over his entire body. At first, it looks like a failure but, after everyone leaves, Chelios's eyes open wide and his heart
monitor indicates normal activity.

Sequel
In an interview, when asked about a third Crank film, actress Amy Smart said "It's been talked about," but no actual
statement from the writers has been made.
[10]
Also in an interview with Amy Smart after the release of High
Voltage, she mentioned that Crank 3 might be made in 3-D
[11]
Mark Neveldine recently stated that a Crank 3 will happen and are looking to include Idris Elba in the sequel. When
asked how it can continue after the way the film ended, Neveldine said "That alone, we have 20 ways to tackle it.
You know, with Crank, basically, you insert another quarter and you play the game again. It’s kind of like what
thrills me and Brian, it’s whatever we feel like doing there in the moment, whatever we wanna do, we just do and
make it happen. The important thing is what powers Chev. It was adrenaline that kept him alive in the first one, it
was electricity in the second one, you know, it’s all about what will keep him alive in the third one. It’s just fun
slinging those ideas around."
[12]
During an 'Ask me anything' on Reddit, Brian Taylor gave a possible 2013 release date for Crank 3

Detroit Rock City (film)

Detroit Rock City is a 1999 American comedy film about four teenagers in a Kiss cover band who try to see their
idols in Detroit in 1978. Comparable to Rock 'n' Roll High School, Dazed and Confused, The Stöned Age, and I
Wanna Hold Your Hand, Detroit Rock City tells a coming of age story through a filter of 1970s music and culture in
the United States. The movie ultimately took its title from the Kiss song of the same name. It flopped at the box
office, grossing fewer than five million dollars domestically, while the final gross of $24,217,115 barely passed the
budget. The film became a cult classic for Kiss fans, rock music fans and metalheads in general.
The film was shot at Cedarbrae Collegiate Institute in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, and other Ontario locations.
[2]
Other Ontario locations include Copps Coliseum, Hamilton, Ontario
Storyline
The movie opens in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1978. Hawk (Edward Furlong), Lex (Giuseppe Andrews), Trip (James
DeBello), and Jam (Sam Huntington) are four rebellious teenagers who emulate and tribute KISS to a degree in their
own garage band called "Mystery." Having discovered his secret cache of KISS albums, Jam's ultra-conservative and
religiously hysterical mother, Mrs. Bruce (Lin Shaye), races up to the home and drags Jam to the car, throwing Jam's
Love Gun album into a trash can.
The three remaining boys discover the next morning that their KISS concert tickets are missing, figuring that Trip's
jacket carrying the tickets got swapped with Jam's. Jam is not able to retrieve the tickets from his jacket before
school due to his mother watching over him as he dresses. Jam's mother later discovers the tickets and destroys them
in front of Jam and the others, by setting them on fire.
Mrs. Bruce then drags Jam from his school and has him transferred to a Catholic boarding school. While in tech
class, the three remaining boys hear a radio contest for KISS concert tickets at Cobo Hall that night.
[3]
Trip leaves
class, so he can call the contest line and he ends up winning the tickets. The boys then ditch school to bust Jam out of
the Catholic school. They take Lex's mom's car, a Volvo 200 series. The trio arrives and Hawk disguises himself as
an arriving pizza delivery guy and delivers a pizza ordered by the priest, Father McNulty (Joe Flaherty) who is
currently lecturing Jam, that has been spiked with hallucinogenic psilocybin mushrooms. Father McNulty becomes
high, allowing them to whisk Jam away.
On the freeway, a Solar Gold 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, driven by Kenny (Nick Scotti) and Bobby (David
Quane), two Italian-American Disco fanatics, along with their girlfriends Christine (Natasha Lyonne) and Barbara
(Emmanuelle Chriqui), begins tailgating them. Trip accidentally drops some pizza on his lap and throws the slice of
pizza out of the window, where it hits the windshield of the Trans-Am, causing a dispute that results in the enraged
Kenny pulling Hawk out of the car and rubbing his face in the pizza on the windshield. Their bullying upsets
Christine, who argues with them and leaves, walking down the freeway. The boys then pick up Christine walking
along the highway, who decides to accompany them to Detroit.
Upon arrival, they find out that Trip did not stay on the phone long enough to give the radio station his information,
forcing the station to give the tickets to the next caller. When coming back outside, Lex notices that the car has been
stolen, and they suspect Christine, who they left sleeping in the car. Hawk then states that the boys go their separate
ways in order to find KISS tickets, and agree to meet in the same place later.
Hawk finds a scalper (Richard Hillman) who suggests that he enter a strip contest at a nearby stip club to raise
money for tickets. Hawk does just that, although he gets extremely drunk beforehand. He doesn't win, but is offered
payment for his company by Amanda Finch, an amorous older woman present (Shannon Tweed). They go to her car
and she takes his virginity. Afterwards, Hawk declines the money she offered, but she insists, telling him to use it for
whatever he wanted to begin with. As Hawk locates the scalper again, however, he runs off, indicating he's all sold
out, much to Hawk's dismay.
Trip goes to a local convenience store in the hopes of mugging a younger child to get tickets. He grabs a kid (Cody
Jones) in Ace Frehley makeup, but the kid has an older brother, Chongo (Matthew G. Taylor), a giant jock athlete
Detroit Rock City (film)
118
who, with his gang of thugs, threaten to beat him up unless Trip pay them $200.00 for their trouble. Asking them to
wait outside, Trip illogically plans to rob the convenience store with a fake gun (in reality a Stretch Armstrong toy)
against his better judgement, but ends up thwarting a real robbery attempt at the store, earning him a $150.00 reward
and a passionate kiss from the lady cashier (Kristin Booth). Trip meets the thugs in an alleyway behind the store, but
the kid decides that Trip didn't meet their demands and has Chango punch Trip in the stomach while taking his
wallet.
Lex sneaks into the backstage area with the KISS loading crew to help set up the concert, but is soon discovered and
found, causing him to flee from arena security and manages to get to the area where the band's trailer is located. Lex
is eventually caught and tossed over a fence by the guards. At first he is menaced by a group of vicious dogs, but
earns their trust when he plays frisbee with them. In a nearby building he finds a chained-up Christine and his car in
a chop shop with two workers (Kevin Corrigan and Steve Schirripa) who plan to rape her. Lex then uses his newly
befriended dogs to chase the two thugs into a back office room, saving Christine and his mom's car. Lex and
Christine share a passionate kiss.
Jam encounters his mother who is leading an anti-KISS rally. The furious Mrs. Bruce grabs him and drags him to a
church across the street for confession, taking away his drumsticks. He is seen by Beth (Melanie Lynskey), a girl
from his school who is in the presence of moving with her parents. She rushes into the church and into the
confessional booth where Jam is, finally revealing to him that she's been in love with him since freshman year, but
never had the courage to tell him. Jam and Beth then make love right then and there, losing their virginity to one
another before the priest returns. Beth promises to contact him once she and her family are settled. Jam, now imbued
with new confidence, goes back to the rally to take a stand. Jam finally stands up for himself, getting revenge at his
mother for her controlling and domineering ways by yelling at her before the assembled crowd, telling her that
forcing religion and morality down his throat are the reasons that he has been rebelling lately, that she has been so
blindsided by her fanaticism she's forgotten what's really important, making her a lousy parent. Jam then demands
that she return his drumsticks, only receiving one of them as the other is broken in the trash.
When the boys meet up again, none of them have had any luck getting tickets, so in a last-ditch effort, Jam suggests
that they beat each other up and say that muggers took their tickets. They do so, unleashing all their angers and
frustrations out on one another and, upon arrival at the concert, they tell the guards that they were mugged by four
people. The guards do not believe them, but suddenly Trip points out to the guards the kid, Chongo and the thugs
from the store, who are just entering the concert hall. The guards finds Trip's wallet (with his KISS Army picture ID
and the $150.00 he got as reward for thwarting the robbery) in their pockets, and hand him the tickets, ejecting the
others outside.
Astonished and elated, the boys enter the concert hall and KISS plays the title song of the movie, "Detroit Rock
City". Jam catches a drum stick thrown by drummer Peter Criss as the film ends.

Coalition Awards Annual Bash Event" - Los Angeles, CA on Nov.

The Free Speech Coalition (FSC) is a non-profit trade
association of the pornography and adult entertainment
industry in the United States. Founded in 1991, it
opposes the passage and enforcement of obscenity laws
and many censorship laws (with the exception of
"anti-piracy" laws).
History
Free Speech Coalition is the trade association of the
adult entertainment industry in the United States.
Founded in 1991, it opposes the passage and
enforcement of some censorship laws (with the
exception of ‘anti-piracy’ laws) and obscenity laws.
The concept of an organization as a rallying point for
those who believe in the free expression of adult-themed
works began as early as 1970. The first truly national
group to emerge was the "Adult Film Association of
America (AFAA)". At that time, adult entertainment was
only available in adult theaters and bookstores so early
members were largely theatrical exhibitors.
With the advent of inexpensive home videos, the AFAA
morphed into the Adult Film and Video Association of
America (AFVAA). The next significant event that
galvanized the AFVAA was the arrest of Hal Freeman
for pandering. Prosecutors wanted to establish once and
for all that paying performers to have sex in a film was an act of prostitution. Freeman won that legal battle, which
redefined the use of the pandering laws relative to providers of adult product. As video productions became the
dominant factor in the marketplace, theatrical exhibition diminished. The Freeman decision effectively legalized the
production of adult films in the state of California.
Video chains and many independent stores in suburbs and smaller cities started carrying adult fare. Law enforcement
officials subjected more and more retailers to obscenity charges. Then, in 1990, under the first Bush administration,
the Federal government attacked most of the major manufacturers of adult video with a sting operation designed to
destroy the industry.
In response, the Free Speech Legal Defense Fund (FSLDF) was formed by industry leaders to protect the rights of
members in all areas of adult entertainment. In 1991, as the government attack was blunted, the FSLDF decided to
select a name more reflective of its broadened role in the adult community, and the Free Speech Coalition was born.
The association became closely aligned with other organizations representing the rights of free speech and civil
liberties
In 1995, a comprehensive Federal scheme regulating the creation and wholesale distribution of recorded images of
sexual conduct went into effect. Aimed at detecting and deterring child pornography, the Federal Labeling Law (also
known as "18 U.S.C. § 2257") eliminated all privacy in the creation of sexual images. Any producers of, and
performers in, such materials were ordered to comply with detailed disclosure requirements. In order for the industry
Free Speech Coalition
126
to comply, the FSC was essential. FSC conducted training seminars, prepared compliance documents and uniform
exemption labels and negotiated with the Justice Department for relief from some of the more burdensome and
unreasonable components of the law.
It was FSC’s response to the Federal Labeling Law that established broadly throughout the industry the necessity of a
functional trade organization to assist the industry.
The FSC entered the field of lobbying in earnest in 1994, with the retention of a lobbyist in Sacramento, California’s
state capitol. After a year, the lobbying presence proved itself critical for the health of the national industry. A tax
bill was introduced, with the purpose of assisting victims of domestic abuse and rape. An excise tax was proposed
for all adult products and services, with the proceeds going to collection of the tax, law enforcement and, if anything
remained, to rape counseling centers and battered victim shelters.
Constitutional law had long forbade the targeting of a content-defined tax, and this bill was the model of such a tax
scheme. Traditionally, the industry had relied solely on the judiciary to protect itself against such intrusions, and
legislatures across the country have become accustomed to regulating the adult industry without consultation with
the parties to be regulated. Both patterns came to a halt with this proposed tax.
The FSC led a coalition of affected businesses and industry groups in fighting the tax. The FSC argued that the tax
was a dangerous, unconstitutional precedent and that it would be bad for the state’s economy. During the course of
the ensuing debate, the economic influence of the adult entertainment industry was established in the minds of the
zero votes in support. The bill was defeated at its first committee hearing.
More importantly, the adult entertainment industry, through FSC, proved itself an effective “player” in the
legislature.
The industry and FSC were placed in a difficult position by the amendment of the Federal Child Pornography laws in
1997, which included “simulated” child pornography within the definition of child pornography.
The redefinition of child pornography to include adults appearing to be minors, engaging in actual or simulated
sexual activity was controversial. The Senate Judiciary Committee (the committee of origin), never even held a vote
on the bill, yet it was signed into law, following Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) attaching it during the Conference
Committee to the October 1997 Spending Bill. Under the definition, films such as Midnight Cowboy, Last Picture
Show, Animal House, A Clockwork Orange, Halloween, Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Return to Blue Lagoon,
The Exorcist, Risky Business, Porky’s, Bull Durham, Blow Up, Dirty Dancing, and The People vs. Larry Flynt, were
now subject to prosecution, with the attendant five-year mandatory minimum imprisonment. When these concerns
were brought to Senator Hatch’s staff, they responded by conceding that such films could be charged, but that
“legitimate” movies need not fear prosecution.
The FSC challenged the constitutionality of the law. For the first time since its own redefinition as a trade
association, FSC undertook litigation challenging the constitutionality of a Federal statute.
In 1999, FSC hired its first full-time Executive Director and began to gain a national reputation as a defender of First
and Fourth Amendment rights.
During the Clinton Administration, there were few obscenity prosecutions. Then-Attorney General "Janet Reno"
seemed to see “obscenity” as a victimless crime. She also realized that in many areas community standards had
changed and “obscenity” convictions were becoming more difficult to sustain.
However, in 1996, the "Communications Decency Act" (CDA) was enacted to protect children from accessing adult
material on the Internet. The Child Pornography Protection Act (CPPA) soon followed; this legislation sought to
criminalize the depiction of minors in sexually explicit video or online content, even if those depicted in the material
were over 18-years of age. FSC filed suit against then-Attorney General John Ashcroft, charging that the CPPA
abridged first amendment rights by defining protected speech as obscene or as child pornography.
In 2002, FSC views were upheld in the US Supreme Court in "Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition", the “virtual child
porn” case.

In 2005, FSC filed a complaint against the Dept of Justice and then-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, citing that
18 U.S.C. § 2257 regulations endangered the privacy and safety of performers by allowing private information to be
accessed through the record-keeping process; also that 2257 regulations were complicated to the extent that adult
producers would be unable to fully comply with the record-keeping system.
The controversial regulations have been an ongoing issue for adult industry producers and FSC. A revised set of 18
U.S.C. § 2257 regulations was released in December 2009, prompting another complaint against the DOJ and
Attorney General Eric Holder in 2010.
Current issues
• Challenging 2257 regulations in court (Free Speech Coalition v. Gonzales)
• Opposing the proposed .xxx top-level domain
• Rebutting claims of pornography addiction and harmful "secondary effects" of pornography
•• Workplace Safety
• Anti-Piracy efforts including the FSC Anti-Piracy Action Program

Awards
The FSC Lifetime Achievement Awards are given to adult industry businesses and professionals for outstanding
achievements and contributions to the adult entertainment industry.
[3]
They were launched in mid-1988 by the Adult
Video Association at its annual Night of the Stars fundraising event, replacing its discontinued Erotic Film Awards.
When the association merged into the Free Speech Coalition in late 1992, the new coalition took over the tradition.
Previous years' awards are listed at the AVA Wikipedia entry. Starting in 2008 an “Election Bash” in the fall replaced
the former Night of the Stars awards ceremony, reflecting the FSC’s change in focus from the entertainers to the
business side of the industry.

George Tenet
George Tenet
18th Director of Central Intelligence
In office
July 11, 1997 – July 11, 2004
President Bill Clinton
George W. Bush
Preceded by John M. Deutch
Succeeded by Porter J. Goss
Personal details
Born George John Tenet
January 5, 1953
New York City, New York, United States
Political party
Democratic
[1]
Spouse(s) Stephanie Glakas-Tenet
George John Tenet (born January 5, 1953) was the Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) for the United States
Central Intelligence Agency, and is Distinguished Professor in the Practice of Diplomacy at Georgetown University.
Tenet held the position as the DCI from July 1997 to July 2004, making him the second-longest-serving director in
the agency's history—behind Allen Welsh Dulles—as well as one of the few DCIs to serve under two U.S.
presidents of opposing political parties. In February 2008, he became a managing director at the merchant bank
Allen & Company.
Background
Tenet was born in Flushing, Queens, New York, the son of Greek immigrants Evangelia and John Tenet.
[2]

[3][4]
His
father was an Albanian born in modern-day southern Albania, his mother was a Greek from Greece, Epirus.
[5][6]
His
father worked in a coal-mine in France before arriving in the United States.
[7]
Tenet was raised in Little Neck,
Queens where he and his brother Bill worked as busboys in their family's diner (later renamed Scobee Diner). He
attended Public School 94, Louis Pasteur Junior High School 67, and Benjamin N. Cardozo High School (he was a
classmate of Ron Jeremy and actor Reginald VelJohnson).
[8]
Tenet graduated from Georgetown University in 1976
with a Bachelor of Science degree in foreign service and received a Master of International Affairs degree from
George Tenet
133
Columbia University in 1978.
Tenet is married to Stephanie Glakas-Tenet. They have one son.
Early career
Tenet became research director of the American Hellenic Institute from 1978 to 1979
[9]
and worked for the Solar
Energy Industries Association until 1982.
[10]
He then began working for the Senate, first as a legislative assistant and
later as Legislative Director to former Senator H. John Heinz III of Pennsylvania (1982–1985). He was a staff
member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) from 1985–1988, then Staff Director of the SSCI
from 1988–1993. Later, Tenet joined President-elect Bill Clinton's national security transition team. Clinton
appointed Tenet Senior Director for Intelligence Programs at the National Security Council (1993–1995).
[11][12]
CIA career
Tenet was appointed Deputy Director of Central Intelligence in July 1995. After John Deutch's abrupt resignation in
December 1996, Tenet served as acting director. This was followed by the reluctant withdrawal of Anthony Lake,
after it became apparent to Lake that his nomination had been successfully blocked by Republicans in Congress.
[13]
Tenet was then officially appointed Director on July 11, 1997, after a unanimous confirmation vote in the Senate.
While the Director of Central Intelligence has typically been replaced by an incoming administration ever since
Jimmy Carter replaced DCI George H. W. Bush, Tenet served through the end of the Clinton administration and well
into the term of George W. Bush. In 1999 the Director declined to reveal to the Congress the CIA's budget which
was a departure from previous practice.
[14]
Tenet embarked on a mission to regenerate the CIA, which had fallen on hard times since the end of the Cold War.
The number of agents recruited each year had fallen to an all-time low, a 25-percent decline from the Cold War peak.
Tenet appealed to the original mission of the agency, which had been to "prevent another Pearl Harbor." The trick
was to see where danger might come from in the post-Cold War world. Tenet focused on potential problems such as
"the transformation of Russia and China," "rogue states" like North Korea, Iran and Iraq, and terrorism.
[15]
1999 Bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade
On May 7, 1999, during the Kosovo War, U.S. bombers struck the Chinese embassy in Belgrade with five JDAM
precision guided bombs, killing three Chinese reporters and injuring 20 others. The USA claimed the attack was
accidental. In testimony before a congressional committee, Tenet later admitted the strike was the only one in the
campaign organized and directed by his agency,
[16][17]
though he still claimed it was not deliberate. Later analysis
has suggested that a 100-yard error in a military targeting database maintained by the Pentagon was not corrected or
updated in a timely manner and that other systems intended to prevent such incidents failed to perform as expected.
As a result of this and other incidents, systematic changes were made to pre-strike Rules of Engagement (ROE) for
U.S. pilots, including checklists verifying target information and coordinates. China has never accepted the U.S.
version of events, although Tenet in a published work noted in a bit of black humor that in the prelude to the
bombing of Iraq China had, through unofficial channels, provided the Agency with the exact GPS coordinates of
their Embassy in Baghdad so as to ensure the CIA knew the precise location.
[18]

Al-Qaeda and the War on Terror
By 1999 al-Qaeda had emerged as a significant terrorist threat. The 1998 bombings of two US African embassies
were the latest in a string of attacks on American interests in the west Indian-Ocean region. And in 2000 the USS
Cole was bombed in Aden in an attempt to sink her, killing 17 naval personnel.
Bin Laden Plan
In 1999 Tenet put forward a grand "Plan" for dealing with al-Qaeda. In preparation, he selected new leadership for
the CIA's Counterterrorist Center (CTC). He placed Cofer Black in charge of the CTC, and Richard Blee (a
"top-flight executive" from Tenet's own suite) in charge of the CTC's Bin Laden unit. Tenet assigned the CTC to
develop the Plan. The proposals, brought out in September, sought to penetrate Qaeda's "Afghan sanctuary" with US
and Afghan agents, in order to obtain information on and mount operations against Bin Laden's network. In October,
officers from the Bin Laden unit visited northern Afghanistan. Once the Plan was finalized, the Agency created a
"Qaeda cell" (whose functions overlapped those of the CTC's Bin Laden unit) to give operational leadership to the
effort.
The CIA concentrated its inadequate financial resources on the Plan, so that at least some of its more modest
aspirations were realized. Intelligence collection efforts on bin Laden and al-Qaeda increased significantly from
1999. "By 9/11", said Tenet, "a map would show that these collection programs and human [reporting] networks
were in place in such numbers as to nearly cover Afghanistan". (But this excluded Bin Laden's inner circle itself.)
[19]
Predator drone
The CIA also experimented with a small remote-controlled reconnaissance aircraft, the Predator, to try to spot Bin
Laden in Afghanistan. A series of flights in autumn 2000, overseen by CTC officials and flown by USAF drone
pilots from a control room at the CIA's Langley headquarters, produced probable sightings of the al-Qaeda leader.
[20]
Black and others became advocates of arming the Predator with adapted Hellfire anti-tank missiles to try to kill Bin
Laden and other Qaeda leaders in targeted killings. But there were both legal and technical issues. Tenet in particular
was concerned about the CIA moving back into the business. And a series of live-fire tests in the Nevada Desert in
summer 2001 produced mixed results.
Tenet advised cautiously on the matter at a meeting of the Cabinet-level Principals Committee on September 4,
2001. If the Cabinet wanted to empower the CIA to field a lethal drone, Tenet said, "they should do so with their
eyes wide open, fully aware of the potential fallout if there were a controversial or mistaken strike". National
Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice concluded that the armed Predator was required, but evidently not ready. It was
agreed to recommend to the CIA to resume reconnaissance flights. The "previously reluctant" Tenet then ordered the
Agency to do so. The CIA was authorized to "deploy the system with weapons-capable aircraft".
[21]
Strategic assessments branch
In late 2000 Tenet, recognizing the deficiency of "big-picture" analysis of al-Qaeda, appointed a senior manager in
the Counterterrorist Center to investigate "creating a strategic assessment capability". In spring 2001 the CTC got
back to him, requesting the hiring of "a small group of contractors not involved in day-to-day crises to digest vast
quantities of information and develop targeting strategies".
The CTC's Strategic Assessments Branch was formally set up in July. But it struggled to find personnel. The head of
the branch finally took up his post on September 10, 2001.
[22]
George Tenet

September 11 attacks
After the September 11 attacks, many observers criticized the Intelligence Community for numerous "intelligence
failures" as one of the major reasons why the attacks were not prevented.
[23]
Tenet testified before a public hearing of the Sept. 11 Commission investigating 9/11, that he did not meet with Bush
in August 2001, the month before the September 11 attacks. The same evening after the hearings, a CIA spokesman
corrected Tenet’s testimony, stating that Tenet did indeed meet with Bush twice in August.
[24]
Tenet in his memoir
writes of his memorable visit to Bush at Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, August 2001.
[13]
In August 2007, a secret report written by the CIA inspector general was made public (originally written in 2005 but
kept secret). The 19-page summary states that Tenet knew the dangers of Al Qaeda well before September 2001, but
that the leadership of the CIA did not do enough to prevent any attacks. Tenet reacted to the publication of this report
by calling it "flat wrong", citing in particular the planning efforts of the past two years.
[25]
Tenet immediately increased the size and capability of the CIA's special operations component housed in the Special
Operations Group of the Special Activities Division. This force had been allowed to diminish under the early Clinton
administration. These Paramilitary Operations Officers were the first to enter both Afghanistan and Iraq. Once in
these countries these officers organized and led the Northern Alliance against the Taliban in Afghanistan and the
Kurds against Ansar Al-Islam and Saddam's forces in Iraq. The rebuilding of this capability and the successful
employment of these elite commandos is considered one of Tenets greatest achievements in the Global War on
Terror.
[26][27][28]
Worldwide Attack Matrix
Tenet considered that his Al-Qaeda plan had placed the CIA in a better position to respond after the September 11
attacks. As he put it,
How could [an intelligence] community without a strategic plan tell the president of the United States
just four days after 9/11 how to attack the Afghan sanctuary and operate against al-Qa'ida in ninety-two
countries around the world?
[29]
Tenet (left, in pink tie) briefs President George W. Bush in the Oval
Office along White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card and Vice
President Dick Cheney (face not seen).
This was at a meeting of the restricted National
Security Council – or "war council" – at Camp David
on September 15, 2001. Tenet presented the Worldwide
Attack Matrix, a blueprint for what became known as
the War On Terror.
[23]
He proposed firstly to send CIA
teams into Afghanistan to collect intelligence on, and
mount covert operations against, al-Qaeda and the
Taliban. The teams would act jointly with military
Special Operations units. "President Bush later praised
this proposal, saying it had been a turning point in his
thinking."
[30]
Use of Water Boarding and Willingness to Use
Enhanced Interrogation Techniques (EIT's)
The CIA was authorized by President Bush to use water boarding (a method of torture) and other forms of enhanced
interrogation techniques (EIT's) during interrogations of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Abu Zubaydah and Abd
al-Rahim al-Nashiri, all suspected Al Qaida members, during Tenet's directorship.
[31][32]
Tenet and Iraq WMD controversy
George Tenet
136
According to a report by veteran investigative journalist Bob Woodward in his book Plan of Attack, Tenet privately
lent his personal authority to the intelligence reports about weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) in Iraq.
[33]
At a
meeting on December 12, 2002, he assured Bush that the evidence that Iraq had WMDs amounted to a "slam dunk
case." After several months of refusing to confirm this statement, Tenet stated that it was taken out of context. He
indicated that it was made pursuant to a discussion about how to convince the American people to support invading
Iraq.
[34]
The search following the 2003 invasion of Iraq by U.S., British and international forces yielded no
significant WMDs.
Resignation
Citing "personal reasons," Tenet submitted his resignation to President Bush on June 3, 2004. James Pavitt, his
Deputy Director for Operations at the CIA, announced his resignation the following day, leading to speculation that
the exit of both senior intelligence officials was related to the controversy over alleged Iraqi WMDs and the decision
to go to war. Admiral Stansfield Turner, director of the CIA under President Jimmy Carter, said, "I think the
president feels he's in enough trouble that he's got to begin to cast some of the blame for the morass that we are in
Iraq on to somebody else and this was one subtle way to do it." (Boston Herald, June 4, 2004) However, Bush voiced
support for Tenet's efforts, stating, "George Tenet did a superb job for America. It was a high honor to work with
him, and I'm sorry he left." (Reuters, June 5, 2004)
Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom
President Bush awarding the Presidential Medal
of Freedom to Tenet on 14 December 2004.
Tenet's seven-year term as Director of Central Intelligence was the
second-longest in U.S. history. On December 14, 2004, President Bush
awarded Tenet the Presidential Medal of Freedom. This was
controversial, both because George Tenet had been wrong in his
assertion that there were nuclear weapons in Iraq and because many
critics felt that it was given more for political reasons than merit.
[35]
Recent activities
QinetiQ
In October 2006 Tenet joined QinetiQ as an independent non-executive director.
[36]
Tenet then stepped down from
the board in February 2008 to become the managing director of the secretive investment bank Allen & Company.
[37]
Tenet also sits on the boards of directors of L-1 Identity Solutions, a major supplier of biometric identification
software, and Guidance Software, which makes forensic software used to search computer hard drives for
evidence.
[38]
Along with a number of other notable Greek Americans, he is a member of the advisory board of The
Next Generation Initiative, a leadership program aimed at getting students involved in public affairs.
Memoir
In April 2007 Tenet released his memoir titled At the Center of the Storm: My Years at the CIA. He appeared on 60
Minutes on April 29, 2007, offering much criticism of the Bush administration. The book was the top-selling book in
sales in the first week after publication.
The One Percent Doctrine: Deep Inside America's Pursuit of its Enemies since 9/11 (2006) by Ron Suskind claims
that Abu Zubaydah, once said to be al-Qaida chief of operations, was a low level functionary and mentally ill.
[39]
In
his memoirs, Tenet commented as follows:
George Tenet
137

A published report in 2006 contended that Abu Zubaydah was mentally unstable and that the administration had overstated his importance.
Baloney. Abu Zubaydah had been at the crossroads of many al-Qa'ida operations and was in position to – and did – share critical information
with his interrogators. Apparently, the source of the rumor that Abu Zubaydah was unbalanced was his personal diary, in which he adopted
various personas. From that shaky perch, some junior Freudians leapt to the conclusion that Zubaydah had multiple personalities. In fact,
Agency psychiatrists eventually determined that in his diary he was using a sophisticated literary device to express himself. And, boy, did he
express himself.
[40]

Critics pointed out a factual error in Tenet's book. On the book's first page, Tenet tells of a conversation with
then-Pentagon advisor Richard Perle on September 12, 2001 in which Tenet claims Perle told him in person that
"Iraq had to pay for the attack." But the conversation could not have occurred on that day, because Perle was
stranded in Paris, France on September 12 and didn't return to Washington until three days later. Perle later stated
that the two men indeed crossed each other one morning, as claimed by Tenet, but only later in the same week and
not on September 12. But Perle insisted that he and Tenet exchanged no words in that encounter.

According to G.O.O.D. Music's 2012 song Clique, George Tenet and Kanye West exchanged words regarding their
similar taste in automobiles: "I'm talking George Tenet, I seen him the other day. He asked me about my Maybach,
think he had the same. Except mine tinted and his might have been rented"

Gorgeous Tiny Chicken Machine Show is an internet comedy talk show parody starring a Japanese character called
Kiko. The video series debuted on YouTube in 2007 and was created by husband-and-wife team Greg Benson and
Kim Evey's production company, Mediocre Films. In spring 2008, a distribution deal with Sony Pictures resulted in
10 new episodes to premiere weekly on the company's C-Spot YouTube channel and its Crackle web video site.
[2]
A
second season premiered on C-Spot's channel on September 19, 2008.

History
Independent episodes
Originally developed for a live improv venue,
[3]
the show's first online episode was uploaded to YouTube on
February 25, 2007. It was featured on the site, and quickly rose to viral video status. As of May 28, 2007, it had over
1.4 million views on YouTube and had been featured on a wide variety of other sites. The episode was screened at
the FanTasia Festival on July 20, 2007, marking its Canadian premiere on screen.
[4]
David Spade took particular interest in the fledgling series,
[5]
promoting it on his show, The Showbiz Show with
David Spade. Pairing with Mediocre Films, they created an episode specifically for his show in which one of his
co-workers is a guest on Kiko's show.
[6][7]
A second episode was uploaded on YouTube, but shortly taken off the site by the producers. A vlog by Benson was
quickly posted stating that new episodes would be coming, and negotiations were being made about the fate of the
show. On May 10, 2007, a Kiko music video excerpted from the original episode two and titled "JUICY!" was
posted.
After considerable delays, a revised second episode was uploaded to YouTube on May 29, 2007. This episode was
chosen as "YouTube Star of the Moment" by viewers of the Attack of the Show! program on G4 for the week ending
June 10, 2007; host Kevin Pereira described the show as "a cross between Letterman, Pee-Wee Herman, Steve Irwin,
Emeril, and a Japanese schoolgirl on meth."
[8][5]
Sony episodes
After a long hiatus, a third episode was finally uploaded to YouTube on March 28, 2008, in conjunction with the
show's debut as part of C-Spot and Crackle. It was announced at that time that C-Spot would release 10 episodes,
coming out on successive Fridays as part of an original-programming lineup of six programs. The fourth episode,
featuring pornographic actor Ron Jeremy, drew increased media attention around its April 4, 2008, debut, with Los
Angeles Times' Web Scout article titled "Sony's C-Spot: New Web comedy lineup surprisingly clean despite Ron
Jeremy cameo."
[9][10]
Monsters and Critics reported that same week that the series would be available on C-Spot via several channels of
distributions, including AOL Video, Hulu, YouTube and Crackle, as well as through Verizon's V Cast and directly to
Sony's Bravia televisions. The same story indicated that additional episodes would have guest appearances by
writer-actor Wil Wheaton, actor-director Adam Arkin, and actor-director Michael O'Keefe;
[11]
Arkin's episode — in
which he played a bewildered mycologist —
[5]
was made available April 25, at which time C-Spot announced that
Wheaton would appear in the May 16 episode. Wheaton would instead end up on the May 30th episode.
Format
Episodes follow a fairly standard format: The episode begins with the theme song followed by Kiko introducing
herself as the host and introducing the guest ("please for you to crap hands and cheering for..."), mispronouncing
their name in an off-color fashion, and then bringing the guest star out from a side curtain. The guest attempts to
correct Kiko's pronunciation, but Kiko continues mispronouncing the guest's name throughout the show (and
subtitles reflect the mispronunciation, not the correct name).
Kiko usually leads the guests through a series of zany activities (which usually make the guest rather
uncomfortable), which are usually interrupted by Kiko announcing, "Now it's time to spin the Wheel of Fun!" Kiko
spins a wheel of a chicken, and when it lands on a space (containing unspecified Japanese characters) pointed to by
the chicken's beak, she indicates yet another zany activity for the characters to participate in.
The show ends with the guest star appearing very uncomfortable/confused and Kiko announcing the end of the show
as the credits roll.

Recurring characters
Kiko is played by Evey, who also writes the series. While the character is Japanese, Evey was born in South Korea
and grew up in the United States.
[12]
Additional regular characters include UniCow
[3][13]
(Payman Benz)
[14]
and Cownicorn (Sean Becker),
[14]
hybrid
cow-unicorns; Panda
[3][13]
(Michele Gregory),
[14]
and Go-Go Dancer (Julie Wittner),
[14]
who do not speak (though
Go-Go Dancer can sing). Guest Rick Pope (Ryan Smith)
[14]
— which Kiko mispronounces as "Lick Poop," a
mispronunciation that is transcribed on-screen — appeared in episodes 1, 4, 5, 13, 16, 18, and 22; several follow-up
videos from Mediocre Films and distributed on C-Spot's YouTube channel are part of a series titled "Lick Poop's
Video Diary", which purports to be Rick Pope's private vlog, stolen, edited, and uploaded by UniCow.

Heidi Lynne Fleiss (born December 30, 1965) is an American former
madam, and also a columnist and television personality regularly
featured in the 1990s in American media. She ran a prostitution ring
based in Los Angeles, California, and is often referred to as the
"Hollywood Madam".
As of 2012, she resides in Pahrump, Nevada.
Early life
Fleiss was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Her parents,
Paul M. Fleiss and Elissa (née Ash), are divorced. Her parents adopted
Elissa's sister's baby daughter Kim, then adopted Paul's sister's baby daughter Amy (born 1965). Heidi was born later
the same year. Paul and Elissa then had Shana (born 1967), Jason (1968–2009) and Jesse Fleiss (born 1977).
[1][2]
On
December 28, 2009, 41-year-old Jason drowned in the sea off Hawaii.

Work in prostitution and criminal charges
At the age of 22, Fleiss began managing a prostitution ring under Madam Alex after meeting the famous Madam
90210 in 1987 via film director boyfriend Ivan Nagy. Fleiss stated in 2002 in an interview with Larry King that her
relationship with Alex was "a very intense relationship" and that she "was kind of like the daughter she loved and
hated, so she was abusive and loving at the same time." In the same interview, Fleiss said she was a prostitute for a
short period.
[4]
By 1990, Fleiss parted with Alex and began to run her own prostitution ring. Fleiss has stated that she made her first
"million [dollars] after only four months in the business" as a madam, and that on her slowest night she made
$10,000.
[5]
By 1991 and 1992, she was so successful that she began rejecting girls to work for her. In June 1993, she
was arrested for multiple charges, including attempted pandering.
Federal charges were filed in 1994, and Fleiss posted $1,000,000 bail. The state trial began the same year and Fleiss
was convicted. In May 1996, her state conviction was overturned, and her appeal bond was set at $200,000.
[6]
Fleiss
was convicted of federal charges of tax evasion in September 1996 and sentenced to 7 years in prison.
[7]
Fleiss
served 20 months at the Federal Correctional Institution, Dublin in California. She was released to a halfway house
on November 19, 1998 and ordered to perform 370 hours of community service.
[8]
Fleiss was released from the
halfway house in September 1999.
Fleiss' ring reportedly had numerous famous and wealthy clients. When questioned by British TV presenter Davina
McCall about revealing the names of her clients, she replied; "It's not my style".
[9]
Media appearances
In 1995, Nick Broomfield made a documentary about her prostitution ring called Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam.
In 2004, a made-for-TV movie was produced called Call Me: The Rise and Fall of Heidi Fleiss, in which Fleiss was
portrayed by actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler.
Fleiss and reality TV personality Victoria Sellers (a friend of Fleiss since their teens, although their relationship had
hit the rocks during the period Sellers was interviewed for Broomfield's documentary)
[10]
hosted and produced an
instructional DVD titled Sex Tips with Heidi Fleiss and Victoria Sellers in 2001. She is a periodic guest on Fox
News programs and is currently featured in Maxim Magazine's "Ask Heidi" column.
In January 2010, Fleiss was the third housemate to enter the final Channel 4 series of Celebrity Big Brother in the
UK;
[11]
she was the second to be evicted.
[12]
During her appearance on Big Brother, she stated that she does not
want children, as she would be a poor mother, and would respond to an unplanned pregnancy by terminating it—her
exact words were "Thank God for abortion!"--this comment elicited angry responses from viewers.
[13]
She did not
return for the finale; Davina McCall said Fleiss had to look after some exotic birds.
Business interests
In 2005, Fleiss announced plans to open a brothel in Pahrump, Nevada called "Heidi Fleiss' Stud Farm".
[14][15]
In
2007, Fleiss opened a laundromat called "Dirty Laundry" in Pahrump, as her plans for the brothel had been put on
hold due to a "slight complication."
[16]
In 2009 she said that she had abandoned her plans to open such a brothel.
[17]
She opened a fashion boutique in Los Angeles after being released from prison.
Personal life
After completing treatment for substance abuse, Fleiss became engaged to Dennis Hof, owner of Nevada's Moonlite
BunnyRanch.
[18]
Fleiss is Jewish,
[19]
and has said that she is a vegetarian.
[9]
She owns an ultralight flight park in Pahrump, FAA designation NV54
[20]
.

In 2003, Fleiss accused her ex-boyfriend, actor Tom Sizemore, of domestic violence. Sizemore was convicted by a
California jury of domestic violence, making criminal threats, and making obscene phone calls.
[21]
Fleiss eventually moved to Pahrump, Nevada,
[22]
where she came to live in solitude in Death Valley
[23]
while caring
for 25 parrots.
[24]
Dr. Drew Pinsky, who treated Fleiss for substance abuse, performed brain scans on her that
showed significant frontal lobe dysfunction, which Pinsky surmised was behind her inability to empathize with
people, and her affinity for doing so with birds.
[25]
She had developed a particular closeness to a macaw called
Dalton who died tragically.
[26]
In 2009, Fleiss was treated for substance abuse at the Pasadena Recovery Center, which was filmed for the third
season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. One of her fellow patients was Sizemore, against whom her prior
restraining order had lapsed. Both Fleiss and Sizemore consented to appear together on the show before filming
began,
[25]
and their reunion, depicted in the third episode, was amicable,
[27]
though Fleiss subsequently expressed
mixed feelings about his presence there.
[28]
During the filming of the program, Fleiss left the center and was
involved in an accident with her SUV near her home in Nevada. She subsequently returned to rehab.

Hell's Highway is a 2002 horror film written and directed by Jeff Leroy.
Plot
Out on a highway in Death Valley, a man picks up a female hitchhiker named Lucindia, and gives her a drink.
Lucindia has a coughing fit upon ingesting the liquid, stumbles out of the vehicle, and is stabbed to death by the
motorist. The man (revealed to be a priest, whose offer to Lucindia was holy water) buries Lucindia's body, and
erects a crucifix similar to the dozens dotting the roadside over the impromptu grave. As the preacher prays,
Lucindia reappears and bludgeons him with his shovel as he shouts "El Diablo!"
Nearby, four college students (Eric, Chris, Monique, and Sarah) from Western Pennsylvania are on a road trip to
Redondo Beach. Spotting Lucindia at a cluster of crosses, the quartet pick her up, and ask her about the grave
markers. Lucindia tells them that this stretch of supposedly cursed road (nicknamed "The Devil's Highway" and "The
Desert of the Angry Spirits") was originally known as Hobb's Road, and that during pioneer times a group of settlers
were trapped by an avalanche, and forced into cannibalism to survive. When Chris mentions that a group of their
friends are also on their way to Redondo Beach, Lucindia claims she tortured them to death before pulling out a gun
and sexually assaulting Sarah. When Lucindia tries to shoot Sarah in the crotch, Sarah and Eric manage to knock her
out of the vehicle.
The next day, Lucindia (who had just robbed, castrated and murdered a motorist) catches up with the college
students, who run her down, beheading and disemboweling her. On what's left of Lucindia's body, Eric finds Chris's
brother's cell phone, and a battery pack that fits into a camcorder Sarah had earlier discovered in the desert. The
group watches the last few minutes recorded by the camera, which show Lucindia shooting all their friends after they

held a botched séance in the desert. Lucindia turns to the camera and tells a story about a settler couple who became
trapped in the valley, and to try and save his wife, the husband killed himself so she could consume his flesh. Her
husband's body was not enough to sustain her, and in her last dying hours the woman cursed God and prayed to the
Devil for salvation, and received it in exchange for a steady stream of victims.
When the footage ends, Lucindia appears and butchers Chris with a chainsaw. The students drive off, with Lucindia
catching up to them when they stop to dump Chris's body. Sarah, Eric and Monique run, but are cornered by a pair of
Lucindias, who murder Eric and Monique. Sarah kills one of the Lucindias, and is saved from the remaining one by
two government operatives, who capture Sarah.
Sarah is taken to a military installation, where it is explained that there were four equally delusional Lucindias, and
that they were the result of cloning and growth serum experiments. The staff tells Sarah that she is going to become
their new test subject, and as they try to give her an injection, a wounded Lucindia barges in. Sarah screams "I told
you the Devil would come back!" as Lucindia opens fire with a shotgun, causing an explosion that presumably kills
her and everyone else in the room.

Reception
Hell's Highway was called an "amateurish and dumb Hitcher wannabe" by The Worldwide Celluloid Massacre.
[1]
While Independent Flicks criticized many aspects of Hell's Highway and gave it a one and a half out of seven, the
website admitted that despite its flaws the film was still entertaining.
[2]
Monsters at Play described the film as "an entertaining guilty pleasure" and concluded "There are some truly inspired
moments to be found within that make Hell's Highway a more than satisfying view".
[3]
Movie Feast also responded
well to the film, writing "An entertainingly silly and gory slasher flick, Hell's Highway raises almost no suspense and
is a far cry from scary, but delivers plenty of gore and a few laughs for low budget connoisseurs. A fun cast, decent
effects and a fast pace makes this a winner and worth checking out".

Homo Erectus is a 2007 comedy film about cavemen that was written and directed by Adam Rifkin, and starring
Giuseppe Andrews, Gary Busey, David Carradine, Ron Jeremy, Ali Larter, Hayes MacArthur, Adam Rifkin, and
Talia Shire. It premiered at the 2007 Slamdance Film Festival in January 2007. It was released on DVD in America
as 'National Lampoon's Stoned Age'.
Plot summary
Ishbo (Rifkin) is the younger son of Mookoo (Carradine), the leader of a tribe of cavemen. Ishbo is smarter than
most of his tribesmen, but awkward and nerdy, living in the shadow of his much more physically impressive brother
Thudnik (MacArthur). He hopes to use his superior intellect to become an inventor and raise his tribe above simple
sticks and stones, but due to a combination of the flimsy materials available to him and the lack of support from his
tribe they always fail. Ishbo also has had a lifelong crush on his childhood friend, Fardart (Larter). Much to his
dismay, immediately after he finally expresses his love to her she is "clubbed" by Thudnik (and all that follows in the
tradition of caveman stereotypes), and eventually married to him. Ishbo himself has never clubbed a woman, having
his heart set on Fardart his whole life.
After Fardart is betrothed to Thudnik, Ishbo begins to believe that he will never club a woman. He at first is too
attached to her to consider clubbing another woman, and is further discouraged after a particularly ill-fated attempt at
clubbing. Ishbo becomes quite depressed, a feeling which is escalated by his failure to prove useful on a mammoth
hunt. He falls into a large pile of mammoth dung, then is eaten by the mammoth, and eventually excreted (or
extracted – the scene itself appears as a series of animated cave drawings) from the mammoth when it is finally
killed by the rest of the tribesmen.
During an attempt on Mookoo's life, it is revealed that their rival tribe, the Binadraks, are planning on attacking them
shortly. They train for battle but are bested by their enemies, who kill Mookoo and carry off Fardart, who disguised
herself as a man to take part in the fight. Thudnik orders a retreat and they return to their home cave, which they
decide to abandon in favour of finding a new home. Unable to convince the rest of the tribe to stay and fight, Ishbo
decides to set out to avenge his father and rescue Fardart on his own. Thudnik declares him an enemy and swears to

kill him if he sees him again.
On the way he gets lost, sees a vision of his father, and stumbles upon a tribe of Amazon cavewomen, who first plan
to kill him but are then impressed by his stance against clubbing of women. His reward is freedom, but only if he
agrees to impregnate all the Amazons, starting with their Queen. He is at first eager to do so, however he is unable to
perform the task as his heart still belongs to Fardart. Offended that he has turned down a "gift" which many men
have died trying to achieve, they chase him from their lands with spears.
Eventually he reaches the cave of the Binadrak tribe and spots Fardart. Surprisingly, she does not wish to be rescued,
as her captors have supplied her with fine furs, plentiful food, and an attractive bone necklace. The tribe then rises up
and chases after him, whereupon they meet the Amazon tribe and eventually his own tribe, who both join in the
chase. The three groups together eventually chase him off the edge of a cliff, where he delivers a thoughtful
monologue to the audience before reaching the ground, and his death.
The final scene is in a modern museum, where a group of school children are being given a guided tour. The guide
reaches their caveman exhibit, featuring a life-sized "model" of Ishbo, where she explains how with fossils, they
have been able to reconstruct the prehistoric cave man and discover how he looked in his life: in her words, "short
and fat". However after she leaves Ishbo addresses the audience again, for the last time.
Oh, and everyone gets laid.

"I Got You Babe" is a 1965 #1 single by American pop music duo Sonny & Cher.
Background and composition
Sonny Bono, a songwriter and record producer for Phil Spector, wrote the lyrics to and composed the music of the
song for himself and his then-wife, Cher, late at night in their basement. Session drummer Hal Blaine performed the
drums for the song. Bono was inspired to write the song to capitalize on the popularity of the term "babe," as heard
in Bob Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" which was a hit for The Turtles.
Upon recording and releasing the song, "I Got You Babe" became the duo's biggest single, their signature song, and
a defining recording of the early hippie countercultural movement. In August 1965, the single spent three weeks at
the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and #19 on the R&B charts in the United States
[1]
where it sold more than 1
million copies and was certified Gold. The duo's single also hit #1 in the United Kingdom where it sold 780.000
copies and was subsequently included on their debut album, Look at Us.
The song placed at #444 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of all time.
Live performances
Sonny and Cher last performed the song together during an impromptu reunion on NBC's Late Night with David
Letterman on November 13, 1987.
[2][3][4]
Cher performed the song with R.E.M. on February 14, 2002, at the Kodak
Theatre in Los Angeles.
[5]
It was her first performance of the song without Sonny.

John Curtis Holmes (August 8, 1944 – March 13, 1988) better known as John C. Holmes or Johnny Wadd (after
the lead character in a series of related films), was one of the most prolific male porn stars of all time, appearing in
about 2250 adult loops and pornographic feature movies in the 1970s and 1980s. He was best known for his
exceptionally large penis, which was heavily promoted as being the longest, thickest, and hardest in the porn
industry, although no definitive measurement of Holmes' actual penis length exists.
[1]
Near the end of his life,
Holmes attracted notoriety for his involvement in the Wonderland murders in 1981, and eventually for his death
from complications caused by AIDS.
Holmes was the subject of several books, a lengthy essay in Rolling Stone, and two feature length documentaries; he
also inspired two Hollywood films (Boogie Nights and Wonderland).
Early life
John Holmes was born John Curtis Estes on August 8, 1944 in the small rural town of Ashville, Ohio, located a few
miles south of the state capital of Columbus. John was the youngest of four children born to 26-year-old Mary June
Holmes (née Barton); his father's name was not listed on his birth certificate. Mary and her husband, Edward
Holmes, the father of Holmes' three older siblings, Dale, Edward and Anne, were separated numerous times
throughout their marriage. Mary changed John's surname to Holmes when he was a child. It was not until 1986, prior
to a trip to Italy and while applying for a US passport to travel abroad, when his mother provided him with the
hand-written copy of his original birth certificate, that Holmes learned the name of his biological father, Carl Estes.
John's mother was a devout Southern Baptist, who regularly attended the Milport Chapel Church along with her
children, where John had perfect attendance.
John's stepfather, Edward Holmes, was an alcoholic who would come home inebriated, stumble about the house, and
even vomit on the children.
[2]
As a child, John enjoyed a reprieve from his turbulent home life when he would visit
his maternal grandparents. Mary Holmes divorced her husband when Holmes was three or four and moved with her
children to Columbus, Ohio, where they lived in a low-income apartment project with a friend of Mary's and her two
children. The two women worked as clerks and waitresses in order to support their young children. When Holmes
John Holmes (pornographic actor)
160
was eight, his mother married Harold Bowman.
Shortly afterward, Holmes and his family moved from Columbus and settled in the small town of Pataskala, Ohio,
about 10 miles east of Columbus. Holmes recalled that Bowman was a good father until his younger half-brother,
David, was born, at which point Bowman lost interest in his non-biological children and began neglecting them.
[1][3]
Because he was the youngest, John began to suffer beatings at the hands of Bowman (who is said by Laurie Holmes
in the 2008 John Holmes biography A Life Measured in Inches, to have had bipolar disorder) that continued well into
his late adolescence. By the time he reached his teenage years, Holmes, who was very tall and strong for his age,
fought back and knocked him out cold after Bowman had thrown him down a flight of stairs.
[3]
After this incident,
Holmes ran away from home at age 16, and after several days of living on the streets, returned home and informed
his mother that if he moved back in he would probably kill Bowman should he strike him again.
With his mother's written permission, Holmes dropped out of high school and enlisted in the U.S. Army at age 16.
After Advanced Individual Training at Fort Gordon, Georgia, he spent three years in West Germany in the Signal
Corps.
[3]
Upon his honorable discharge, Holmes moved to Los Angeles, where he worked in a variety of jobs,
including selling goods door-to-door and tending the vats at a Coffee-Nips factory. It was during his stint as an
ambulance driver that he met a nurse named Sharon Gebenini in December 1964. They married in August 1965.
[4]
Holmes found work as a forklift driver at a meat packing warehouse in nearby Cudahy, California. However,
repeated exposures to inhaling the sub-freezing air in the large walk-in freezer after being outside inhaling the
desert-hot air caused severe health problems, leading to a pneumothorax of his right lung on three separate occasions
between seven to nine months during the two years he worked there.
[4]
According to Sharon Holmes, during the first
17 months of Sharon's marriage to John, she suffered three miscarriages.
Porn career
"John Holmes was to the adult film industry what Elvis Presley was to rock 'n' roll. He simply was The King."
—Cinematographer Bob Vosse in the 1998 documentary Wadd: The Life and Times of John C. Holmes.
Exactly when Holmes began his career in porn is difficult to determine because he (and others) have related several
different and conflicting stories. One story is that Holmes met a young woman who offered him $100 to have sex
with her on camera in a seedy apartment in Los Angeles, which was filmed as his first silent 8mm loop. Sharon, later
told interviewers: in 1967, while Holmes was unemployed and recovering from his collapsed lung ailment, he went a
few evenings a week to a card-playing club called the Poker Palace, located in Gardena, California. It was there that
a photographer, standing next to Holmes at a men's room urinal, saw Holmes' "unusually large penis" and asked him
to pose in still photographs.
[5]
Adult film director Kirdy Stevens (documented in John Holmes: A Life Measured in
Inches) submits: Holmes had actually started adult work in 1965, when Stevens and his wife Helene Terrie hired
Holmes and Holmes' girlfriend, starlet Sandy Dempsey, to appear in nudist films along with several other unknowns.
Stevens said that two years later, in 1967, he hired Holmes and Dempsey to appear in one of the first series of
hardcore loops for mail order in the United States produced by Stevens and Terrie. The loop can be seen in Stevens'
1979 hardcore film Little Me and Marla Strangelove. Holmes would also pose in various underground porn
magazines as well as appearing in additional 8mm loops or stag films, while keeping his profession a secret from his
wife until 1968.
[6]
Determining the number of films he made during the early part of his career is also difficult because the ad copy
rarely named him, and credits that did usually used entirely inconsistent names. For example, one early "Swedish
Erotica" brochure from 1973 has five loops featuring Holmes, each with a different stage name. In the early years of
his porn career, Holmes was nicknamed "The Sultan of Smut", a pun on Babe Ruth's nickname, The Sultan of Swat.
In 1971, Holmes' career began to take off with a porn series built around a private investigator named Johnny Wadd,
most episodes of which were written and directed by Bob Chinn. The success of the first film of the series, Johnny
Wadd, created an immediate demand for more Johnny Wadd films so Chinn followed up with Flesh of the Lotus
John Holmes (pornographic actor)
161
(1971). A steady stream of Johnny Wadd films followed, including Tell Them Johnny Wadd is Here (1976), Liquid
Lips (1976), The Jade Pussycat (1977), The China Cat (1978), and Blonde Fire (1978), all of which were huge box
office successes. The last five Johnny Wadd films were produced by Freeway Films, an L.A.-based company owned
and operated by Armand Atamian.
With the success of Deep Throat (1972), Behind the Green Door (1972), and The Devil in Miss Jones (1973), porn
became chic, although its legality was still hotly contested. In 1973, Holmes was arrested during this time for
pimping and pandering (not because it was illegal to make or possess porn, but because paying the actors qualified as
pimping and pandering, and on the bust in question, John paid the girls himself
[7]
), but he avoided prison time by
becoming an informant for the LAPD.
[8]
Using his status as an informer, it is alleged Holmes systematically had his
competition in the porn industry arrested, although there is no substantiated evidence to support the claim that
anyone in the adult industry was arrested as a result of Holmes' efforts. Retired LAPD Detective, Tom Blake, later
talked about becoming Holmes' undercover contact and handler while Blake was working as a vice squad officer
during the 1970s . In the 1998 documentary Wadd: The Life and Times of John C. Holmes, he discussed working
with Holmes and described how Holmes would contact him with information about the underground porn industry as
well as give him the names of various actors, actresses, directors, and financiers of the porn films and when they
would be filmed. In the documentary, Blake did not cite names of people that Holmes was alleged to have provided,
suggesting that Holmes' information was either manufactured or false.
[9]
By 1978, Holmes was reputed to be earning as much as $3,000 a day as a porn actor.
[1][8]
By the late 1970s, his consumption of cocaine and freebasing was becoming a serious problem. Professionally, it
affected his ability to maintain an erection, as is apparent from his flaccid performance in the 1980 film Insatiable.
To support himself and his drug habit, Holmes ventured into crime, selling drugs for gangs, prostituting himself to
both men and women, and committing credit card fraud and petty theft. In 1976, he met a 15-year-old girl, named
Dawn Schiller, who became his girlfriend. After Holmes fell on hard times, he prostituted both her and himself, as
well as beat her in public.
[10][11][12]
Number of partners
In the 1981 documentary, Exhausted, John C. Holmes: The Real Story, Holmes began to claim that he had had
intercourse with 14,000 women.
[8]
The number had in fact been invented by Holmes to help salvage his waning
image.
[1]
(Holmes later joked to psychologist Dr. Vonda L. Pelto, who had counselled Holmes in 1982 and other
notorious inmates during her employment at L.A. County jail, that he was exaggerating the number — which was
actually 13,895.) To substantiate this number, and assuming Holmes' first experience with a woman occurred at 16,
then he would have had to have sex with 666 women a year—1.8 women a day—for the next 21 years. Pornography
historian Luke Ford calculated the number of Holmes' sexual partners over the course of his lifetime to be a
relatively modest 3,000, or 2.7 new women per week.
His performances included at least one homosexual feature film, The Private Pleasures of John C. Holmes in
1983.
[8]
Drugs and the Wonderland murders
In 1980, Holmes developed a close friendship with drug dealer and nightclub owner Eddie Nash. At the same time,
Holmes was closely associated with the Wonderland Gang, a group of heroin-addicted cocaine dealers, so-called for
the location of their hideout: a rowhouse located at 8763 Wonderland Avenue in the wooded Laurel Canyon
neighborhood of Los Angeles. At the time the Wonderland Gang was the most widely feared cocaine distribution
organization in California due to their brazen tactics, which included daylight ripoffs of rival drug dealers.
Holmes worked for the gang, frequently selling or delivering drugs for them. After stealing money during a couple
of drug runs, Holmes was in trouble with the gang. In June 1981, allegedly in exchange for his life, he told gang
leaders about a very large stash of drugs, money, and jewelry Nash had in his house. Holmes helped to set up a
John Holmes (pornographic actor)
162
robbery that was committed on the morning of June 29, 1981.
Although Holmes did not participate in the robbery, Nash apparently suspected that Holmes had a part in it. After
getting Holmes to confess to his participation, and threatening his life and that of Holmes' family, Nash allegedly
exacted revenge against the Wonderland Gang. In the early hours of July 1, 1981, four of the gang's members were
found bludgeoned to death in their hideout; a fifth victim was left brain damaged and lost a finger. Holmes was
allegedly present during what came to be called the "Four on the Floor" murders, but it is unclear whether or not he
participated in the killings. As the LA Weekly reported, "Veteran LAPD detectives, just 12 years after Helter Skelter,
claimed they had never seen so much blood at one crime scene."
[13]
Nash eventually agreed to a plea bargain in 2001 for conspiracy to commit the Wonderland Murders, among two
other charges for RICO violations and money laundering.
Holmes was questioned regarding the murders in July 1981, but was released due to lack of evidence. Holmes
refused to cooperate with the investigation. After spending nearly five months on the run with Dawn Schiller, he was
arrested in Florida on December 4, 1981 by LAPD homicide detectives Tom Lange and Frank Tomlinson and
returned to Los Angeles. In March 1982, Holmes was charged with personally committing all four murders. On June
26, 1982, after a three-week public trial, Holmes was acquitted of all charges except contempt of court.
[14]
Later years
In November 1982, after serving over 100 days of jail time for contempt of court (the longest in California history at
that time)
[15]
and unrelated robbery charges, Holmes was released and almost immediately re-entered the adult
entertainment business. However, his cocaine use and freebasing continued on and off.
[16]
By the early to mid-1980s, the adult film industry began the transition of making porn movies on videotape instead
of film. Holmes continued to find work during his comeback, and along with many of his male contemporaries, he
helped to usher in the new starlets of the decade such as Ginger Lynn, Amber Lynn, Sheri St. Claire, and Kimberly
Carson as upcoming directors focused on looking for younger talent. Most of Holmes' appearances in adult films and
videos during the 1980s were cameos as he started concentrating his efforts on working in other facets of the adult
industry. Coinciding with the revival of his film career, Holmes and his partner and manager, Bill Amerson, were
hired in 1984 by VCX, where Holmes worked part-time as a line producer and director.
Ultimately, Amerson contends, Holmes embezzled approximately a quarter-million dollars from him. Others have
contested Amerson's embezzlement claim. In the biography, John Holmes: A Life Measured in Inches it is revealed
that Bill Amerson incorporated their joint company, Penguin, once Holmes fell ill, cutting Holmes out of the
partnership. After the fact, Amerson failed to pay the company's creditors who had granted Penguin funds to produce
films. Holmes' ex-wife Sharon later told an L.A. Weekly reporter covering the film Wonderland she was not surprised
that her ex-husband returned to the adult film industry after his release from contempt:
“The moral [of Wonderland] for me is your choices and what you do with them. You dig down deep and
find something. And John didn’t have anything to dig down and find anymore. That’s why he went back
to the porn business. That’s why he went back to stealing.”
[17]
In February 1986, five or six months after testing negative for the virus, Holmes was diagnosed as HIV positive after
a second HIV test. According to his second wife, Laurie Holmes (porn name Misty Dawn), he claimed that he never
used hypodermic needles and was deeply afraid of them. Both his first wife, Sharon, as well as Bill Amerson
separately confirmed later that Holmes could not have contracted HIV from intravenous drug use because he never
used needles.
[1]
During the summer of 1986, Holmes was offered a substantial sum of money by Paradise Visuals (who were
unaware of Holmes' HIV-positive status) to travel to Italy, where he filmed his last two porno movies. The
next-to-last was The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empress (originally released in Italy as Carne Bollente) for director
Riccardo Schicchi. The film starred Holmes, the later Italian Parliament member Ilona "Cicciolina" Staller, Tracey
John Holmes (pornographic actor)
163
Adams, Christoph Clark, and Amber Lynn.
[18]
His final film was The Devil in Mr. Holmes, starring Tracey Adams,
Amber Lynn, Karin Schubert, and Marina Hedman.
[19]
These last films created a furor when it was revealed that
Holmes had consciously chosen to not reveal his HIV status to his co-stars before engaging in unprotected sex for
the filming.
[18]
<ref name=<nyt>Holden, Stephen (January 12, 2001). "WADD: The Life and Times of John C.
Holmes"
[20]
. NY Times.</ref>
[21][22]
Unwilling to reveal the true nature of his failing health, Holmes claimed to the press, his friends, and Paradise
Visuals that he was suffering from colon cancer. Holmes married Laurie Rose on January 23, 1987 in Las Vegas,
after confiding to her that he had AIDS.
[23]
In the 2008 publication, "John Holmes: A Life Measured in Inches", Laurie Holmes spoke about her late husband
with reverence."Fishing, camping, garage sale-ing, going to the movies, going to the beach, going to museums --
loved fire crackers, amusement parks, as well as the great outdoors. John was fond of all God's creatures. We had
cats, dogs and birds. He had a great respect for animal life and believed you shouldn't kill what you didn't eat."
[24]
At Holmes' personal request, Laurie ensured John's anatomy was intact when he was cremated.
[25]
During the last five months of his life, Holmes remained in the VA hospital on Sepulveda Boulevard in Los Angeles.
John Holmes died from AIDS-related complications (according to his death certificate, cardiorespiratory arrest and
encephalitis due to AIDS, associated with lymphadenopathy and esophageal candidiasis) on March 13, 1988 at the
age of 43.
[26]
His body was cremated, and his widow Laurie, his mother Mary, and half-brother David scattered his
ashes at sea off the coast of Oxnard, California.
[27]
Personal life
• In August 1965, he married a young nurse named Sharon Gebenini
[4]
(played by Lisa Kudrow in the film
Wonderland (2003), on which Sharon Holmes is credited as a consultant
[28]
). He remained married to her until
their divorce was finalized on January 17, 1983.
• In 1975, he met Julia St. Vincent on the set of his film, Liquid Lips, which was being produced by her uncle,
Armand Atamian. Holmes and St. Vincent stayed close until 1981 and the Wonderland affair. St. Vincent
produced the ersatz biographical film of Holmes' life, Exhausted: John C. Holmes, the Real Story.
[29]
• In 1976, John met Dawn Schiller (played by Kate Bosworth in the film Wonderland (2003), on which Schiller is
credited as an associate producer) when she was 15, and within six months began a five-year affair with her that -
after Holmes became heavily involved with drugs - included his getting Dawn hooked as well, beating her up, and
prostituting her. Schiller has related her experiences and their aftermath in such outlets as the Marie Claire article
titled "I Dated a Porn Star" (August 19, 2010)
[30]
and the book The Road Through Wonderland: Surviving John
Holmes (2010).
[31]
Ironically, Dawn is now Sharon Holmes' legal guardian. As Schiller told Marie Claire: "I
found out she was homeless in L.A., so I went there in 2006 and got her. She lives in a facility a few blocks away
from me here in Oregon. I'm her legal guardian. She apologized the best she could [for being "one of many adults
around me who did nothing"]. I've accepted that, and we've moved on."
[32]
• In 1983, Holmes met his second wife, Laurie Rose (stage name Misty Dawn). They married in January 1987.
Holmes was stepfather to Rose's young son, who was eight years old when Holmes passed away.
•• John Holmes was godfather to three of partner Bill Amerson's children, Sean, Denise and Shannon Amerson.
The true number of women (and men) with whom Holmes had sex during his career will never be completely
known. After his death, his ex-wife Sharon came across a foot locker plated in 24k gold leaf, which allegedly
contained photographic references of his "private work". She burned all of it.
[33]

Penis size
Holmes' main asset in the porn business was his exceptionally large penis. No definitive or verifiable measurement
exists, leaving its exact size unknown.
Veteran porn actress Dorothea "Seka" Patton has stated that Holmes' penis was the biggest in the industry.
[34]
Holmes' first wife recalled his claiming to be 10 inches ( cm) when he first measured himself.
[35]
Holmes himself
once claimed his penis to be 23 inches ( cm) long and 17 inches ( cm) in circumference.
[35]
Holmes' long-time friend
and industry associate, Bill Amerson, said that "I saw John measure himself several times, it was 13 and a half
inches" (34.3 cm).
[1]
(In contrast, medical studies of human penis size have consistently found erections average
between about 5 and 6 inches.
[36][37][38]
) A review of Holmes' films over the course of his career shows that most of
his early co-stars tended to be short and slender, whereas women with whom he engaged in on-screen sex later in his
career were much taller and had proportionately larger bodies; as a result, the size of Holmes' penis appears to
fluctuate in his films, relative to the height and mass of his co-stars.
Another controversy regards whether Holmes ever achieved a full erection, although much of his early work clearly
reveals he was able to achieve a substantial erection. A popular joke in the 1970s porn industry held that Holmes was
incapable of achieving a full erection because the blood flow from his head into his penis would cause him to pass
out.
[39]
Annette Haven stated that his penis was never particularly hard during intercourse, likening it to "doing it
with a big, soft kind-of loofah."
[39]
In The Wonderland Murders chapter 13, "Wadd Forever", TruCrime TV's Julia Scheeres reports:
[40]
"John Holmes made one last request of his wife before he died, Laurie Holmes writes in Porn King.
Fearing that someone would snip off his famous appendage, Holmes asked her to ensure that his body was
intact before it was rolled into the furnace to be cremated.
'He didn't want it to end up on a shelf or in a jar as a conversation piece or collectible,' his widow wrote,
adding that everything was where it was supposed to be.
Today, however, John C. Holmes lives on as a collectible of a different sort: a 12.5-inch rubber dildo."
Business activities and endeavors
In 1979, Holmes with his younger half-brother, David Bowman, opened up a locksmith and used furniture store
called The Just Looking Emporium in Los Angeles, which both managed. But because of Holmes' escalating drug
addiction and of the lack of money to operate the store since Holmes was squandering all of his and other people's
money to buy cocaine for himself, the business failed by the end of that very year.
[41]
Later, about two years after his 1982 murder trial and acquittal, Holmes began a business partnership with his friend
and associate Bill Amerson, as they founded and operated a production company titled Penguin Productions, where
Holmes could be a triple-threat: writing, directing, and performing.

Holmes appeared in seven of Penguin's
twenty video productions between 1985 and 1988. After requesting permission from his old director friend Bob
Chinn to use the name, Holmes reprised the detective role for the 1986 Penguin Production: The Return of Johnny
Wadd. The script was written by newcomer Raven Touchstone and directed by Patti Rhodes-Lincoln.
Despite Holmes' notoriety and infamy, he also devoted substantial time to environmental causes. Holmes was known
to campaign and collect door-to-door for charities such as Save The Whales.
[41]
According to his two wives Sharon
Holmes and Laurie Holmes, and several girlfriends documented in John Holmes: A Life Measured in Inches, Holmes
enjoyed woodworking, sketching, sculpting and writing poetry.

Holmes mythology
Holmes' career was promoted with a series of outrageous claims that he made over the years (many made up on the
spur of the moment by Holmes himself). The most dubious ones include:
• Holmes' penis was so big that he had to stop wearing underwear because "I was getting erections and snapping the
elastic waist band 4 or 5 times a month."
[42]
• Holmes had degrees in physical therapy, medicine, and political science from UCLA.
[43]
According to Bill
Amerson, "the closest John ever got to UCLA was breaking into cars in the school's parking lot."
[1]
• A teenage Holmes played the role of Eddie Haskell in the TV series Leave It to Beaver. (The character was
portrayed by actor Ken Osmond, who bore a resemblance to Holmes.)

Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List is an American reality television series on Bravo. The series debuted on
August 3, 2006.
[2][3]
The series follows the struggle of self-proclaimed "D-list" celebrity Kathy Griffin to climb the
Hollywood ladder. This often includes scheming for publicity with staffers Jessica, Tiffany, and Tom. Her
relationships with her parents and her now ex-husband have also been heavily featured.
Background and Production history
Griffin had titled her first Bravo comedy special The D-List (2004), to imply that her pull as a bottom-feeder
celebrity was so low, she didn't even make the "C-list." The special was so popular that the network later approached
Griffin to film a reality series based on her celebrity-bashing comedy.
All six seasons of the program have been nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality
Program, with seasons 2 and 3 winning in 2007 and 2008, respectively. Season 3 (2007) premiered with the highest
ratings for the show, with approximately one million viewers. Season 4 (2008) was the first expanded season, with
ten episodes.
[4][5]
Season 5 (2009) premiered with almost one million viewers, making it Bravo's highest rated Monday original series
telecast ever in all demographics, at the time. The premiere was also up double digits among adults 18–49 versus the
Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List
169
Season 4 premiere.
[6]
Production began on Season 6, shooting eight episodes of the new season in January 2010.
[7]
According to Griffin's official website filming wrapped in April. The season included, "An estate sale with Maggie, a
pap smear in public and standing up in D.C. for the rights of our troops". It aired June 15, 2010 preceded by a new
comedy special that was taped in Knoxville.
[8]
Liza Minnelli gave Griffin acting lessons in one episode just before
her guest appearance on season 11 of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Jane Fonda wanted to do an episode but
her schedule was not free until October. Griffin hinted that Ryan Seacrest will be in an episode, titled "An
Uncomfortable Lunch with Ryan Seacrest".
[9]
The sixth season premiered on June 15, 2010 and concluded on
August 3, 2010.
It was announced that the show would not be renewed for a seventh season.
[10]
The series has aired on the cable TV channel Arena in Australia, E! in the UK, and in Canada on The Comedy
Network and the Toronto-based independent station Sun TV.

Killing Zoe is a 1994 film, written and directed by Roger Avary. The story details a safe cracker named Zed who
returns to France to aid an old friend in performing a doomed bank heist. Killing Zoe is regarded as a respected "cult"
favorite
[2]
and has been labeled by Roger Ebert as "Generation X's first bank caper movie."
[3]
Plot
Zed (Eric Stoltz), a professional safe-cracker, comes to Paris to help a childhood friend, Eric (Jean-Hugues Anglade),
with a bank heist. In the cab on the way to his hotel room, the cabbie obtains a prostitute for him. He arrives at his
hotel room and is soon greeted by the prostitute, Zoe (Julie Delpy), who also confides that she is studying art, and
has a "very boring" day job. After having sex, they talk with each other amiably, then fall asleep. Their reverie is
soon interrupted when Eric barges in and brusquely sends Zoe out of the room, so the two men can get on with their
business.
Eric takes Zed back to his residence where Zed meets Eric's friends. Eric explains his plans: the following day is
Bastille Day and virtually everything is closed except for the bank they plan to rob, which is a holding bank and is
open on holidays. Zed forgoes his rest time to spend the night partying with Eric and his friends among some of the
more disreputable people of Paris in a cavernous jazz club, which Eric refers to as 'the Real Paris'. During the
binging, Eric confides to Zed that he has AIDS, which he contracted through IV drug use.
Killing Zoe
176
The next day, Zed is awakened by Eric as they prepare to enter the bank. The team dons Carnival masks to hide their
faces before bursting into the bank. They quickly kill those who do not cooperate as they escort Zed (who has not
witnessed the killings) to the safe so he can get to work. Their plans soon start to disintegrate as the police show up
and they're faced with the possibility of going to jail for life or having to shoot their way out. Eric throws an
explosive into a vault and enters it (mortally wounding a guard in the process - Zed himself shoots the guard as an
act of mercy), finding a large supply of gold bars—- but the thieves can't leave the bank alive with their fortune.
Tensions become even higher when Zed recognizes Zoe (who coincidentally works at the bank) and attempts to
protect her, to the fury of Eric, who viciously slashes Zed's cheek with a knife.
A vicious gunfight between the police, Eric, and the rest of the gang begins—- with Zed caught 'innocently' in the
middle. Eric's men are killed by the police as they rush the bank, and Zed and Eric begin to fight each other. The
police shoot Eric to death. He falls on Zed, splattering great amounts of blood on him in the process (possibly
exposing Zed to his HIV-infected blood). Injured, Zed is led away quickly by Zoe, who covers for him, stating he is
a bank customer. They drive away in her car, where Zoe promises Zed that when he gets well she'll show him the
'real' Paris.
Production
Killing Zoe was director Roger Avary's feature directorial debut. Producer Lawrence Bender had scouted a bank
location in Los Angeles as a possible filming location for Reservoir Dogs. Knowing he could attain the location for
very little, and being a savvy producer, Bender telephoned all the screenwriters he knew and asked if they had any
screenplays that took place in a bank. Avary told him he had one, even though he didn't, and proceeded to write one
in a reported week and a half. The film was, however, not shot in the bank Lawrence Bender originally scouted.
Avary stated he wanted to make "an art-house film for both the coffeehouse crowd and the exploitation crowd."
[4]
Despite being set in Paris, the film was shot almost entirely in Los Angeles, California. Only the opening and end
credit roll and some small car driving clips were filmed in France.
In an interview included on the DVD, Avary explains how he wanted to make a movie about how nihilistic he felt
his generation was, and said that watching Stoltz in the film was like seeing his evil twin come into creation. He
wrote the script specifically for Stoltz. Both he and Stoltz admitted they had a fantasy to rob a bank (though Stoltz
qualified this with ‘and not go to jail’!) and making this movie was as close as they would get.
Avary stated that, as a first time director, it was a dream to work with actors as talented as Jean-Hugues Anglade,
Eric Stoltz and Julie Delpy.
Killing Zoe is notable as the first feature film to use the newly invented Otto Nemenz Swing & Tilt lenses, which
were used during the heroin sequences for perspective distortion instead of their original purpose of perspective
correction.

Little Superstar
Little Superstar is a video uploaded on YouTube, which is a clip from the 1990 Indian film Adhisaya Piravi,
starring Rajinikanth. The clip features the dwarf South Indian actor Kingkong breakdancing to MC Miker G & DJ
Sven's "Holiday Rap". The title "Little Superstar" presumably originates from the nickname of the film's lead actor,
Rajinikanth, who is generally coined as a superstar. Various mashups have also appeared on the Internet using tracks
from Cypress Hill, Michael Jackson and others.
The video has been featured on YouTube, in Tom Anderson's bulletins on Myspace, on the E! TV show The Soup,
the MSNBC shows Countdown with Keith Olbermann and Tucker Carlson, G4TV's Attack of the Show! and
elsewhere, as well as having been parodied on Saturday Night Live. Another popular video clip features Thavakalai
slapping a man from the same movie.
In recent years, actor Kingkong has choreographed a dance number in a Doritos Tandoori Sizzler! commercial
shown in Canada, which was filmed in India.

Little Superstar

Transcript of the video
The language spoken in the clip is Tamil. The rough English equivalent would be:
Dancing clip
Mother: Hey, hey. What's with the party early morning? Get out everybody, shoo, shoo. [Speaking to Rajinikanth,
who's lying on the cot] Why not take some rest, dear?
Rajinikanth: OK Mom [lights up a beedi as she walks away].
Kingkong: Dude, give me a beedi.
Rajinikanth: Hey! Kids shouldn't smoke.
Kingkong: Buddy, I'm ten years older than you. Give it to me I say.
Rajinikanth: And if I don't?
Kingkong: I'll skin you alive.
Rajinikanth: Here you go.
Slapping clip
Kingkong: Brother, you don't worry about this silly duel. I'll take care of this myself (with my hands).
Rajinikanth: Ok.
(Kingkong slaps thug)
Kingkong: [pauses and looks at Rajinikant] Dude, how (am I doing)?
Rajinikanth: Great!
Rajinikanth: Enough. He's going to die!
[Kingkong returns back to cot]
Rajinikanth: Well, is this enough or do you want a piece of me too?
Misconceptions
The clips were incorrectly reported as being from Bollywood, which predominantly refers to the filmmaking
industry of Hindi films, in some places on the web and TV media, such as YouTube, Yahoo and the "Oddball Plays
of the Month" segment of Keith Olbermann show on MSNBC. The film is actually from Tamil cinema, colloquially
known as Kollywood, the Tamil filmmaking industry based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.
Kingkong has been incorrectly described as a child actor in some places. He is actually an adult with dwarfism. He
was also never known as a "little superstar" in the Tamil film industry and is only the phenomenal title of the clip
given by its uploaders. However, the protagonist of the film, Rajinikanth (actor lying on the cot in the video), is
known as a "Superstar" in India.
Little Superstar
179
In popular culture
A parody version of "Little Superstar" starring porn star Ron Jeremy first started turning up on video sharing
websites in March 2007. Another parody starring Fred Armisen as Kingkong and Bill Hader as Rajinikanth aired on
Saturday Night Live on April 21, 2007. Nobody's Watching also created a parody of the video. A parody of "Little
Superstar" appeared in the season finale Gorillas in the Mist (American Dad!) of the sixth season of American Dad!.

Nash Bridges is an American television police drama created by Carlton Cuse. The show starred Don Johnson and
Cheech Marin as two Inspectors with the San Francisco Police Department's Special Investigations Unit. The show
ran for six seasons on CBS from March 29, 1996 to May 4, 2001 with a total of 122 episodes being produced.
The show has aired in over 70 countries. It currently airs in the Middle East on MBC's newly launched Action block
MBC Action, DR2 in Denmark, Crime & Investigation Network, WGN America, Universal HD in the United States,
TV1 in Australia, 13th Street in The Netherlands and Universal Channel in Serbia.
Story
Nash Bridges debuted on March 29, 1996 on the CBS Television network. The show starred Don Johnson as an
Inspector (later Captain in season 4) with the San Francisco Police Department's elite "Special Investigations Unit".
As the show begins, he's in his 40s, twice-divorced, and dealing with a feisty teenage daughter, Cassidy (played by
Jodi Lyn O'Keefe). Nash convinces recently-retired Inspector Joe Dominguez (played by Cheech Marin) to return to
the force to partner with him. Nash and Joe cruise the streets of San Francisco in Nash's "curious yellow" 1971
Plymouth Barracuda convertible, a gift from Nash's brother Bobby just before Bobby left for the Vietnam War.
Bobby Bridges was reported as MIA, but turns up in later seasons. Nash's father Nick (played by James Gammon)
suffers from mild dementia and has a habit of getting kicked out of nursing homes. He eventually moves in with
Nash, and is often involved in comic subplots.
Aiding Nash in his police work is the technically savvy Harvey Leek (played by Jeff Perry), a middle-aged
"Deadhead" (a die-hard Grateful Dead fan), and young, hotheaded Evan Cortez (played by Jaime P. Gomez,
1996–2000), who has an off-and-on, stormy relationship with Cassidy. In later seasons, additional Inspectors and
other supporting characters were added and subtracted from the main cast. For the first nine episodes, the
commander of the SIU was Lieutenant A.J. Shimamura (played by Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa in season 1-2 only), a
character that was written off after he failed to be promoted to Captain. (The character was said to have returned to
his native Hawaii.) Shimamura's departure opened the door for Bridges to be promoted to Captain, and given
command of the SIU.
Production
The show was produced and filmed on location in the San Francisco Bay Area.
[1]
The show shot on the streets of San
Francisco including The Embarcadero and Piers 30 through 32.
[1]
Neighboring Treasure Island was used as the
headquarters for the show. Hangar 2 on Treasure Island was the location of permanent sets including Nash's
apartment
[1]
The show employed several hundred local workers including production crews and staff members,
carpenters, electricians, set designers, grips, set dressers, props, scenic artists, location managers, costumers, drivers,
cameramen, special effects, soundmen, makeup and hair stylists and production assistants.
[1]
Episode production was
nearly $2 million per episode.
[2]
The show premiered on March 29, 1996 at 10:00pm on CBS.
[3]
The show was produced by the Don Johnson Company and Carlton Cuse Productions in association with Rysher
Entertainment for the first 4 seasons.
[3]
In 1999 Paramount Network Television took over Rysher's spot after
acquiring that company.
The show used 3 different theme songs during its initial run. Season 1 used a primarily instrumental piece. Seasons
2–5 used a musical piece most well known by the lyrics "I got a friend in you to lead me out of the cold." Season 6
changed the song again, using another primarily instrumental piece with a bit of a techno beat to it. A fourth song
sometimes replaces the first season song in syndication.
Nash Bridges
182
Cancellation
The sixth season of Nash Bridges would be its last; however, the show was obtaining fair ratings from Nielsen.
[2]
Following its Friday night ratings battle (which it was losing to NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), the
show was canceled.
[2]
Paramount Network Television, which was producing the show, felt that its $2 million per
episode production cost was just too much.
[2]
CBS was hoping to get a seventh season out of Nash Bridges, but that
failed because Paramount wasn't willing to pay,
[2]
even though at the time, Viacom had owned both CBS and
Paramount. Another factor that led to the ending of the series was that Don Johnson wanted out.
[2]
Johnson was
getting tired, and CBS and Paramount had enough episodes to put the series into syndication.
[2]
"Don was already exploring other opportunities. Doing a TV series five days a week for as long as he did is an exhausting task. Don
was ready to move on."
Elliot Mintz, Don Johnson's Publicist

Cast and characters
Main cast
• Don Johnson as Inspector/Captain Nash Bridges: Nash is a seasoned police Inspector in his 40s, with a
lifelong devotion to the SFPD. He's got a photographic memory and a tendency to call everyone "Bubba" or
"Sister." His personal life isn't as balanced as his professional one, starting with his two divorces and a strained
relationship with both his aged father and a feisty daughter. An amateur magician with a talent for handcuff tricks.
Don Johnson is the only member of the cast to appear in all 122 episodes of the series.
• Cheech Marin as Inspector/Lieutenant Joe Dominguez: At the start of the series, Insp. Dominquez is talked
out of retirement to partner with Nash. He is married to a statuesque Swedish woman, Inger, and together they
have a daughter, Lucia, and a son, JJ. Dominguez's character is light-hearted, often making witty, off-the-cuff
observations at crime scenes. He has a penchant for getting involved in get-rich quick schemes, often having to be
rescued by Nash. The details of Nash & Dominguez's relationship (and why they are such close friends,) is
revealed during the course of the series: As a young cop with a bright future, Dominguez ruined his reputation by
being busted for a DUI. The only person to stand by him was his partner at the time, later revealed to be Nash. In
later seasons, Nash & Joe form a private detective agency to make extra money.
• James Gammon as Nick Bridges: Nash's retired longshoreman father who lives with him. He sometimes gets
into some minor trouble which leaves Nash to save him. He also tends to get involved in Joe Dominguez's
get-rich-quick schemes. Nick suffers from light dementia, and that affectation was dealt with thoughtfully
throughout the series. It should be noted that the character showed a definite preference for his older son, Bobby
Bridges, over Nash.
• Jodi Lyn O'Keefe as Cassidy Bridges: Nash's 20-something daughter who originally aspired to be an actress.
Cassidy had a tough relationship with Evan that had them eventually reconciling and about to marry, before Evan
was killed. This inspired Cassidy to join the SFPD after his death. She was then assigned to the SIU, under her
father's command, something that most likely would not happen in real life. By the end of the series, Cassidy
relocated to Paris to be with her mother.
• Jeff Perry as Inspector Harvey Leek: A die-hard Grateful Dead fan with a technical background. His wife left
him after 5 and a 1/2 years of marriage because of his commitment to police work. Best friend to Evan and one of
Nash's team, and very passionate about his '72 Ford Ranchero. The Ranchero is seen in the series almost as often
as Nash's Barracuda until the car was irreparably damaged in a shootout.
• Jaime P. Gomez as Inspector Evan Cortez: (1996–2000) Best friend to Harvey and the youngest partner of
Nash, who suggested he rejoin working with Joe at the beginning of the series. Evan reminded Nash of what he
used to be long ago. He had a stormy relationship with Cassidy, which after many ups and downs, ended when he
Nash Bridges
183
was killed in the line of duty. Evan had reconciled with Cassidy at the time and was engaged to her for a Las
Vegas wedding. Evan went through a painful period after his breakup with Cassidy and the loss of his job as a
drunk on a downward spiral. With Joe's intervention and his own recovery in a 12-Step Alcoholics Anonymous
program, the character's run was finished as a Christian, played with kindness and care. Jaime Gomez appeared in
all but six episodes of the series' first five seasons.
• Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Lieutenant A.J. Shimamura: (1996) Former police superior who worked closely
with Nash and the SIU as both co-worker and friend. A.J. held true to a promise that if he wasn't promoted to
Captain he would leave the force and move back to his native Hawaii. Shimamura lasted 9 episodes.
• Mary Mara as Inspector Bryn Carson: (1996–1997) The only female member of the SIU at the time, she was
often used to go undercover when a woman's role was needed. She was not known to have a very successful
romantic life. She left the SIU with no reason ever given.
• Kelly Hu as Inspector Michelle Chan: (1997–1998) An aggressive inspector who Nash takes under his wing as
a protégé. She was killed in cold blood by the Prowler, a killer seeking media glory whom Nash killed out of
revenge and claimed it as self-defense.
• Yasmine Bleeth as Inspector Caitlin Cross: (1998–2000) She had a tense relationship with Nash bordering on
professionalism and personalism. Caitlin, originally came to the SIU as an MCD Inspector investigating them, but
eventually joined them. She had a brief romance with Nash, which ended when she left to help her sister in

Popular culture references
• In 1997 an episode called "Wild Card" guest starred Philip Michael Thomas (who had been Johnson's co-star in
Miami Vice) reuniting Johnson for the first time on television together since Miami Vice, and Tommy Chong
(who had been Marin's longtime partner in the Cheech and Chong comedy team) reuniting with Marin. The Wild
Card episode also contains a nod to Cheech & Chong's iconic "Dave" from their 1972 self-titled debut album.
Philip Michael Thomas also guest-starred on an episode called "Out of Miami". It also featured Steven Bauer, the
ex-husband of Don Johnson's ex-wife, Melanie Griffith. He played a Miami drug lord, which is a reference to his
main role in the film Scarface. A version of the Miami Vice theme is heard playing in the background. In an early
interview, Johnson compared Bridges to his Miami Vice character Sonny Crockett, saying Nash was "the same
guy, just... ten years older."
[13]
• In the 1997 Season 2 episode, "The Counterfeiters", another one of Johnson's co-stars from Miami Vice, John
Diehl, guest stars as a criminal posing as an S.I.U. officer.
[14]
• Aaron Spelling was so eager to cast Yasmine Bleeth in the role of vixen on Titans in 2000 that his company
convinced CBS to grant her an early release from her Nash Bridges contract. (Coincidentally, CBS now owns the
rights to most of the shows produced by Spelling).
• The first script was written by neighbors Don Johnson and Hunter S. Thompson as a TV movie about a
drug-addicted cop, Nash, who dated a known mobster's daughter, and his Latino partner. Thompson appears as a
piano player in the pilot.
• There were six different Barracudas made up to resemble the 1971 Hemi Cuda convertible that Nash drove. Four
of these were built from 1970 and 1971 Barracuda convertibles and the 5th FX car made from a 73 coupe
converted into a convertible. None of these actually had Hemi engines, but rather 318–440 engines including new
Mopar Performance crate motors. 4 cars were automatic transmissions and two were 440 4spd cars. The color of
the car as depicted resembles the factory's "Curious Yellow" option (an allusion by the factory to the porn movie I
Am Curious, Yellow) but in fact screen tests proved the factory color did not read well on camera. All show cars
were painted an off-the-shelf color from paint distributor Sherwin-Williams.

Language English
Not the Bradys XXX is an adult film spoof the popular family television show The Brady Bunch, produced by
Hustler Video.
The producers David & Mullen have made their careers out of lampooning pop culture in an adult entertainment
vein. Before Not the Bradys they set their spotlight on Britney Spears when they made the adult film Britney Rears.
Plot
Faced with financial difficulties at home due to slow business at his architectural firm, Mike and his wife Carol
reluctantly tell the kids that the entire household will be on a budget for the next few months until business picks
back up and the cash crisis ends. The kids get together and decide to help out by taking on odd jobs, holding car
washes and pitching in wherever they can to help save the family house from bank foreclosure. Mayhem ensues
especially when Marcia unwittingly applies for a job as a figure model and finds out she's about to star in an adult
movie.
Publicity
Not the Bradys got an unexpected boost of publicity due to the fact that its release date coincided with rumors that
Brady Bunch actress Maureen McCormick admitted to a lesbian affair with co-star Eve Plumb in her memoir Here's
the Story. Although the book's publisher says the rumor is unfounded, the timing couldn't have been better.
[1]
Not the Bradys XXX eventually generated an impressive buzz and proved to be a top seller for Hustler Video. It
gained critical raves from review states and was featured in many mainstream press outlets such as the New York
Post, and the television program The Insider.

Plot
On a snow-covered mountain, a bus, truck, and a few cars arrive at a remote camp area to film a porno film. The
group is made up of professional porn actors Ron Jeremy and Veronica Hart, novice porn stars Rock, Angel, Wanda,
and Lance, as well as the director and producer Jim, cameraman Jonah, gaffer-electrician and sound guy T.J., and
makeup and script girl Laura.
After being dropped off by the school bus driver who leaves them behind, the group settles in their living quarters for
the next few days to shoot. While Laura talks with Ron about his past career days, the guys, Lance, Rock and T.J.
talk about T.J.'s latest suck-and-squeeze device for carnal pleasure that T.J. wants to market, while Angel and Wanda
talk about their experiences on the porn sets. Radio reports begin to describe a "strange light" in the sky that has been
hovering over the mountains for the last several hours as Jim gets down to directing, starting with the first scene with
Ron and Veronica. During a break in filming, Jonah goes outside to get some more lights from the truck while Ron
also goes out to relieve himself. Suddenly, a strange light hits Ron, who then collapses to the ground. Jonah helps
him up and they go back inside to finish filming the scene. Ron is acting strangely and begins to exhibit strange
behavior as he begins performing in the sex scene with Veronica, who begin screaming in pain as Jim tries to yell
"cut" as Ron continues to have rough sex with her. The guys are forced to pull Ron off Veronica as he goes into
convulsions and collapses. T.J., Jeff, and Jonah try to help Veronica, who begins hemorrhaging and loses
consciousness. They guys look over to help Ron and see that he is dead. But they also notice that Ron's legendary 9
3/4-inch penis is gone as well.
In Angel's room, she is rehearsing her upcoming scene, when the disembodied penis attacks her. Wanda walks in on
this and runs out to inform Rock, Lance and Laura who run in only to find the disembodied member gone and Angel
dead, with a large and gory hole in the back of her head. While everyone runs out to tell the others, Laura has an
encounter the disembodied penis which attacks her.
Holding themselves up in the main cabin, Jonah, Jim, T.J., Lance, Rock, and Wanda try to make sense of what is
going on, just when Laura walks in, acting strangely. After the guys carry Ron's dead body outside, they debate on
what to do since they are stranded there and no one has any signal for their cell phones. Rock wants to make a run
for the cars to try to get off the mountain, but when he runs outside, the disembodied penis appears and shoves itself
through him. When Jonah and T.J. run outside in a futile attempt to save him, they are surprised by the appearance of
a rugged mountain man, named Mohtz who brings them back inside to the main cabin.
Resting, Jonah and T.J. make the assumption that Ron's missing penis is possessed by some kind of alien force. Jeff
suggests finding a way to kill it while Laura, who continues acting strange, wants to capture it. Lance and Wanda
retreat to a nearby bathroom where he tries to calm down the growing hysterical Wanda over this unbelievable turn
of events. Just then, the severed penis slithers in through a crack in the bathroom window and attacks them both.
Jonah and T.J. come up with a plan to capture the lethal creature by luring it through an open window, using a pair of
women's panties borrowed from Laura, to try to trap it with Jeff's suck and squeeze device. Montz volunteers to kill
it after he gives them a creepy but hilarious monologue about his encounter with a similar event back in Vietnam in
the 1960s where he saw his platoon getting killed by a disembodied penis that came from the body of his
commanding officer. T.J. volunteers to help out and has Jonah lock him and Montz in the kitchen to make sure that if
they fail that Rock's penis will not be able to get them. But while their backs are turned, the disembodied penis
slithers into the kitchen and strangles Montz to death, while it shoves itself in rapid speed through T.J., killing him.
Jim panics and runs into the nearby bathroom only to find a dead and cocooned Lance and Wanda against the wall.
Panicking, he runs outside to the nearby barn and tries to start a snow speeder to try to escape. But the severed penis
follows him in a super-fast chase down the mountain where it knocks him off his snow speeder and then gruesomely
slices him in two from the crotch to the top of the head as it burrows through the snow.
Back at the main cabin, the three survivors of Jonah, Laura, and the barely conscious Veronica are beside themselves
and wait. Jonah, after being told earlier by Mohtz about the location of an old radio antenna atop the nearby
One-Eyed Monster
194
mountain, suggests they run to a nearby cabin that Mohtz told them about where there is an underground passageway
to the radio shack where they can radio for help. With Veronica having regained some of her strength, they make it
to the passageway, which is apparently an old mine shaft, and walk through the long tunnel and make it to the radio
shack where Jonah tries to get the radio to work, only the severed penis follows them and lands on Laura. Jonah tries
to swing at it with an axe, but the "thing" is much too fast and keeps evading his blows. Veronica then thinks of a
way to fight it. She lies down on the floor and offers herself to the entity which shoves itself between her legs.
Veronica tells Jonah and Laura to run for safety as she will keep it occupied and uses her vaginal muscles to drain it
of its power. Jonah and Laura flee from the radio shack cabin and down the mountain just as Veronica makes the
severed dick climax. The penis monster explodes in a massive blast, destroying itself as well as killing Veronica and
blows up the radio cabin in a massive blast covering the sky with millions of particles.
Jonah and Laura seek shelter in a nearby shack where they huddle for the night. At dawn, Laura hears sounds of rain,
but Jonah tells her that the rain is "Ron". The remains of the penis monster are raining down semen on the entire
area.
At dawn, when the sounds had stopped, Laura leaves the cabin and a sleeping Jonah, where she ventures outside and
to a place in the snow where she seems to be distraught over the death of the one-eyed monster. Laura reveals a
massive bulge in her abdomen as she is now impregnated by the penis monster which attacked her earlier and will
now be the apparent breeding chamber to the one-eye monster's off spring
Critical Reception
Andrew Smith of Popcorn Pictures was quick to praise the film, stating that it "has the most ridiculous plot ever but
it works brilliantly because the script treats it with respect and seriousness. What could have become a cheesy
schlock fest actually turns into a near-masterpiece of comedy, seriousness and believability."

Orgazmo is a 1997 comedy film written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of the animated series South
Park, and directed by Parker.
Plot
The film revolves around Joe Young (Trey Parker), a Mormon missionary, who gets talked into starring in a porno
movie by the famous porn director Maxxx Orbison (Michael Dean Jacobs) in order to earn enough money to marry
his fiancee Lisa (Robyn Lynne Raab).
In the eponymous movie-within-the-movie, he plays a superhero named "Orgazmo" who fights crime with his
sidekick "Choda Boy" played by Ben Chapleski (Dian Bachar) using his signature weapon, the "Orgazmorator", a
device that forcefully triggers climax in those he uses it on. Following an agreement with the director, Joe acts and
fights while a "stunt cock" does the rest. Orgazmo goes on to be a smash hit, becoming the single highest grossing
pornographic film ever, and even earning a place in mainstream theaters, and the director decides to exploit the
missionary and make the movie into a series. Joe's fiancee returns to L.A to find a tape of Orgazmo playing on a TV
in a video store. She becomes upset at his role in the film and leaves, but is kidnapped by the director to ensure Joe's
Orgazmo
196
participation in further filming.
Joe decides to fight back using a real Orgazmorator invented by Ben, which gives him the powers his character
reportedly had. He uses these powers to bring down the corrupt filmmaker and rescue his fiancée. The film wraps up
with Lisa, seeing Ben's distress at the thought of his friend moving back to Utah, declaring that Joe must stay and
fight crime with him. Ben, after a prayer from Joe, concludes by saying, "God bless us, everyone" (a parody of Tiny
Tim's line at the end of A Christmas Carol).
In the film's final scene, Orbison is told that his testicles will have to be removed after a number of
Orgasmorator-induced orgasms caused them to swell massively. He swears revenge on Orgazmo, vowing to become
another character from the porno movies — Orgazmo's arch-nemesis, Neutered Man.

The Oxford Union Society, commonly referred to simply as the Oxford Union, is a debating society in the city of
Oxford, England, whose membership is drawn primarily but not exclusively from the University of Oxford. Founded
in 1823, it is Britain's second oldest University Union (only the Cambridge Union Society is older), and has gained a
worldwide reputation for the cut and thrust of its debate, proving a valuable training ground for many future
politicians from Britain and other countries.
Status and membership
The Oxford Union is an unincorporated association, holding its property in trust in favour of its objectives and
members, and governed by its rules (which form a multi-partite contract between the members).
Since its foundation, it has been independent of the University: historically, this was because the Victorian
University restricted junior members from discussing certain issues (for example, theology). Despite such
restrictions since being lifted, it has remained entirely separate from the University, and is constitutionally bound to
remain so.
Only members of Oxford University are eligible to become life members of the Union, but students at certain other
educational institutions are entitled to join for the duration of their time in Oxford. These institutions are:
[1]
•• Oxford Brookes University
•• Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies
•• Oxford Centre for Postgraduate Hebrew Studies
•• Ripon College, Cuddesdon
•• Ruskin College
• St Stephen’s House
Shorter membership is also extended to those participating in some visiting study programmes in Oxford.
Oxford Union

Residential memberships are available to Oxford residents who are not from the university, but only if they are
deemed worthy by a full meeting by officers of the Union.
The Union buildings are owned by a separate charitable trust, the Oxford Literary and Debating Union Trust.
Union buildings
The Oxford Union buildings are located in Frewin Court, off Cornmarket Street, and on St Michael's Street. The
original Union buildings were designed by Alfred Waterhouse and opened in 1879. This was about a decade after the
completion of the Cambridge Union's premises, also designed by Waterhouse, and the exterior of the two buildings
was very similar.
The Main Building
A debating chamber was subsequently added, but the Union's growing
membership meant that it became too small, and is now the "Old
Library". The Old Library is best known for its Pre-Raphaelite
paintings by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones and William
Morris, known as the Oxford Union murals. The current debating
chamber, and several further extensions to the main buildings were
added over the next forty years. The final extension was designed in a
conventional Gothic Revival style by Walter Mills and Thorpe and
built in 1910-11.
[2]
It provides a dining room and a second library,
together with basement library stacks.
Many of the rooms in the Union are named after figures from the Union's past, such as the Goodman Library, with
its oriel windows, and the wood-panelled MacMillan Room with barrel ceiling. The buildings have gradually been
added to with paintings and statues of past presidents and prominent members.
The Debate Chamber
The Gladstone Room also contains William Ewart Gladstone's original
cabinet table, semi-circular in design so that he could look all his
ministers in the eye as he held forth.
In the debating chamber there are busts of such notables as Roy
Jenkins, Edward Heath, Michael Heseltine, George Curzon, 1st
Marquess Curzon of Kedleston and William Ewart Gladstone. There is
also a grand piano in the debating chambers known as the
"Bartlet-Jones Piano" after the Oxford University Music Society
president who found it dusty and forgotten in a cupboard in the
Holywell Music Room and placed it on permanent loan to the Union.
The piano was unveiled by Vladimir Ashkenazy, who famously refused to play it in front of the packed chamber
because he "had not warmed up". The despatch boxes which continue to be used in Union debates are modelled on
those in the House of Commons, and were offered to the House during World War II.
The buildings were used as a location for the films Oxford Blues (1984) and The Madness of King George (1994).

Debating
Debating at the Oxford Union takes two forms — competitive debating and chamber debating.
Competitive debating is the preserve of a minority of members of the Union. The Union's best debaters compete
internationally against other top debating societies, and the Oxford Union regularly fields one of the most successful
teams at the World Universities Debating Championship (which the Union hosted in 1993) and the European
Universities Debating Championship. The Union also runs the prestigious Oxford Schools' Debating Competition
[3]
and Oxford Intervarsity Debating Competition
[4]
competitions, which respectively attract schools and universities
from around the world, as well as running a number of internal debating competitions. The Oxford Union is
currently only the reigning European and British & Irish Champion in University Debating, having lost the World
debating title in the final against Sydney University Debating team at the recent World University Debating
Championships in Turkey.
Chamber debating, including the debates (known as Public Business Meetings) with invited guest speakers for which
the Union is best known, tends to be less formalised (even if more formal) than competitive debates, and the manner
of delivery is closer to public speaking, with audience engagement far more important.
Public Business Meeting debates also have voting. At the end of the debate, the audience votes on the proposition by
exiting the hall through a door, the right-hand side of which is marked 'ayes' and the left-hand side 'noes'. This
follows the style of the British Parliament, which votes this way if it is necessary to "divide the House".
The Oxford Union has been described as the "world's most prestigious debating society".
[5]
The Union and the Student Union
The Oxford Union is often confused with the Oxford University Student Union (OUSU). OUSU is the officially
recognised student representative body of the University of Oxford. The Oxford Union, despite being composed
largely of students, is not a part of the University.
OLDUT and OUS
It is not generally recognised (either by the outside world, or the Union's members) that the Oxford Union Society
does not own its buildings. The Oxford Union was never financially secure, and its position was not helped by its
termly changes of junior (i.e. student) officers. There was also a significant level of historic debt, associated with the
erection of its buildings.
Following a particularly bad period in the 1970s, the Union buildings were sold to a charitable trust ("OLDUT", the
Oxford Literary and Debating Union Trust), and the Oxford Union Society was granted a licence to occupy the
building.
Several parts of what were historically the Union buildings and grounds were subsequently either sold or made the
subject of long leases, including an area of land around the rear of the debating chamber, part of the Union cellars
Oxford Union
201
(adjoining that now occupied by the Purple Turtle), and part of what was formerly the Steward's house (now
occupied by the Landmark Trust). OLDUT has subsequently paid for the refurbishment and maintenance of the
Union buildings, both from its own resources and by securing private donations and grant funding.
As a result of OLDUT's creation, the future of the physical Union is now secured, so that even if the Oxford Union
Society were to cease to be, or to fail financially, the buildings would not be lost. In addition, OLDUT provides
some financial support for the running of the Union in those areas where the Union undertakes activities which
match OLDUT's charitable objectives - particularly the operation of the Union's library.
Despite the importance of OLDUT in preserving the fabric of the Union, the relationship between OLDUT and OUS
has at times been strained. OLDUT is first and foremost a charitable trust, and it has objectives which do not always
match those of what is primarily a student society.

Free speech
The Oxford Union has long associated itself with freedom of speech, most famously by debating and passing the
motion "This House would under no circumstances fight for its King and country" in 1933.
What is generally forgotten (but arguably more significant as an example of the Union's commitment to freedom of
speech) is that an attempt was made by several prominent Union members (including Randolph Churchill) to
expunge this motion and the result of the debate from the Union's minute book. This attempt was roundly defeated
— in a meeting far better attended than the original debate. Sir Edward Heath records in his memoirs that Randolph
Churchill was then chased around Oxford by undergraduates who intended to debag him (i.e. humiliate him by
removing his trousers), and was then fined by the police for being illegally parked.
More recently, controversial debates at the Union have included "This House Would Abolish the Welfare State" in
2011. The motion fell, but the debate was particularly well-attended on account of the high-profile speaker line-up
and current government spending cuts.
Speakers denied a platform
Harold Macmillan called the Oxford Union "the last bastion of free speech in the Western world", a quotation which
continues to feature prominently in the Union's publicity. However, the Union's commitment to free speech has not
enabled it to resist pressure to deny platforms to controversial speakers.
John Tyndall
A debate that was to have involved the far-right leader John Tyndall was met with a campaign of resistance in 1998.
This opposition, coupled with police advice following a series of racially motivated nail-bombings in London,
resulted in the cancellation of the debate.
[7]
David Irving
An invitation to the controversial historian and writer David Irving to speak in a debate on censorship in 2001 was
met by a coordinated campaign by left-wing, Jewish, and anti-fascist groups, together with the elected leadership of
the Oxford University Student Union, to have the invitation withdrawn. Following a meeting of Union members, and
a subsequent meeting of the Union's governing body, the Standing Committee, the President decided the debate
would have to be cancelled.
[8]
However, Irving was allowed to speak at a Union debate in 2007.
[9]
Oxford Union
203
Philip Nitschke
In March, 2009, the Union withdrew an invitation to euthanasia campaigner Philip Nitschke after Nitschke had
already accepted the invitation. Nitschke received a second email cancelling the invitation in the interests of there
being a "fair debate", and was told other speakers were unwilling to speak alongside him.
[10]
The debate topic was
the legalisation of assisted suicide, a field in which Nitschke is prominent. The reason given by Oxford Union
president Corey Dixon was that two other speakers "disagree with his particular take on [assisted suicide]".
[11]
According to Dixon, the speakers who successfully pressured the Union to withdraw Nitschke's invitation were a
member of the public, whose brother had undergone assisted death, and British euthanasia campaigner Michael
Irwin.
[11][12]
However, Irwin later denied that he had applied pressure to exclude Nitschke.
[13]
The Oxford Union then released a statement explaining the decision: "An administrative decision was made to
ensure we had three speakers on each side of the debate, which was proving difficult due to Nitschke's attendance. It
is always in the interests of the Oxford Union to ensure a balanced debate with as wide-ranging views as possible
represented. There may have been miscommunication between the Oxford Union and Nitschke. We certainly hope
that no offence has been caused. The Oxford Union is a politically-neutral institution and holds no opinion on
Nitschke's views."
[10]
Nitschke commented, "This famous society has a long tradition of championing free speech. To suggest that my
views on end-of-life issues are inappropriate simply because I believe that all rational elderly adults should have
access to the best end-of-life information beggars belief."
[11]
He also called the act "an almost unprecedented act of
censorship".
[14]
Nitschke gave a series of lectures across the UK at the time the debate was held.
[15]
Irving/Griffin controversy
In November 2007, President Luke Tryl sparked controversy by inviting Holocaust denier David Irving and British
National Party leader Nick Griffin to speak at a Union forum on the topic of free speech. Following protests by
several student groups, a poll of the Union's members was taken and resulted in a two-to-one majority in favour of
the invitations.
[16]
On the evening of the planned debate several hundred protesters gathered outside the Union buildings, chanting
anti-fascist slogans and later preventing guests and Union members from entering the premises. Eventually
succeeding in breaching the poorly maintained security cordon, around 20 of the campaigners attempted to force
their way through to the main chamber, whereupon some of the waiting audience blocked access by pushing back
against the chamber doors. After students were convinced to yield to the protestors by Union staff, a sit-in protest
was staged in the debating chamber, which prevented a full debate from occurring due to security concerns. A small
number of the audience attempted to reason with the demonstrators. Because of a lack of security personnel, a
number of students from the audience eventually came to take on the responsibilities of controlling events, in one
instance preventing a scuffle from breaking out between a protestor and members of the audience, and eventually
assisting police in herding protestors from the main hall. One student protestor interviewed by BBC News reported
that fellow protestors played 'jingles' on the piano and danced on the President's chair [17] although the truth of the
latter assertion is seriously questioned by eyewitnesses. Smaller debates were eventually held with Irving and Griffin
in separate rooms, amid criticism that the police and Union officials had not foreseen the degree of unrest which the
controversial invitations would arouse.
[18]
The President of Oxford University Student Union, Martin McCluskey,
strongly criticised the decision to proceed with the debate, claiming that providing Irving and Griffin with a platform
for their extreme views afforded them undue legitimacy.
[19]
Some students following the event criticised the Student
Union for preventing Oxford Union members (as students themselves) from exercising the right to free assembly,
and accused the Oxford University Student Union of hypocrisy in seemingly restricting the rights of free speech to
those individuals whose views chimed with those of the Student Union leadership (although the decision to oppose
the invite had been agreed by representatives of the Student Population at a Council meeting).
[20]

Governance
The Oxford Union is run by the Standing Committee which is elected termly and is constituted by the Junior Officers
(the current President, President-Elect, Junior Librarian, Junior Treasurer, Librarian-Elect, Treasurer-Elect, and the
Secretary), five elected members and recent Junior Officers (who have chosen to serve). The Chairman of the
Consultative Committee is a member of Standing Committee without vote, and the Returning Officer (responsible
for the conduct of the Union's elections and for advising on the interpretation of the Union's rules), the Bursar, and
the Chairman of the Debates Selection Committee are non-members with speaking rights. The Union also has two
Senior Officers, the Senior Librarian and Senior Treasurer (generally Oxford academics but must be members of the
Union) who advise the Standing Committee.
The Junior Officers each have specific areas of responsibility, such as debates (President), "speaker meetings"
(President and Librarian), sponsorship and funding (Treasurer), and social events (Secretary). The Junior
Officers-Elect spend a term preparing their area, before assuming their office.
A number of other committee run or advise the running of various aspects of the Union, including the Wines and
Spirits Committee (the Union's bar), the Cellar Management Committee (responsible for liaison with the
management of the Purple Turtle), the Library Committee (responsible principally for library acquisitions and
disposals), the Finance Committee (which advises the Standing Committee on financial matters), and the Debates
Selection Committee (which runs competitive debating). Two further committees, the Secretary's Committee and the
Consultative Committee, are not, despite their names, committees in the traditional sense.
The Secretary's Committee consists of eleven members, elected on a termly basis in the same ballot as that for the
Officer and Standing Committee, who assist at the Union's social functions, and is generally the first stage for any
aspiring Union politician. Although considered a committee under the rules, it only ever meets informally, and is
more akin to a group of people with a particular role, rather than a committee.
The Consultative Committee holds weekly public meetings during term time, at which members can informally
question the junior officers and members of the elected committees on the performance of their duties. All members
of the Union are considered members of the Consultative Committee, so meetings tend to be more like an open
forum.
The Chairman of the Consultative Committee (who is elected termly, but not during the Union's main elections) is a
member of Standing Committee with speaking privileges but without voting rights, responsible for the Union's
publicity, website and archives; setting up the Union's rooms for events; chairing Consultative Committee, directing
members of the Secretary's Committee, and bringing up any matters of concern at Standing Committee. The
Chairman of the Consultative Committee is in this capacity the President's Executive Officer, carrying out much of
the daily business of the society.
The Chief of Staff (who is appointed by the President) co-ordinates guest liaison, acts as a mediator between the
permanent staff and elected officials, and serves as the President's chief adviser, usually owing partially to the fact
they hold the office for multiple terms and as such have experience and institutional memory in greater depth than
the elected officials and Chairman of Consultative Committee who rotate every term. Whilst the Chairman of
Consultative Committee acts as the President's Executive Officer, The Chief of Staff is often seen as the de facto
Vice President (The Librarian is the de jure Vice President). When the positions of Chairman of Consultative
Committee and Chief of Staff are filled by talented individuals, the two together can be a very powerful and
influential team.
The Returning Officer is elected from a body of Deputy Returning Officers whose members have been approved by
a scrutiny committee. He is responsible for running the Society's elections and is empowered (along with the
President) to interpret the Society's constitution. It remains hotly disputed whether the Returning Officer wields
disproportionate influence without an electoral mandate, or maintains an essential check and balance to the powers
of the President.
Oxford Union
205
The day to day management of the Union is partly conducted by professional staff, principally the Bursar and the
House Manager.

Other Officers of the Union who have achieved political success include Ann Widdecombe, Edwina Currie, and Roy
Jenkins. Harold Macmillan was Librarian of the Union before the First World War ended his university career in
August 1914.
Elections
The Union holds elections in the penultimate (7th) week of each University term, in order to allow members of the
society to choose officers and committee members for the following term. The elections are held to fill the offices of
President-elect, Librarian-elect, Treasurer-elect and Secretary, as well as five elected positions on the Standing
Committee and 11 positions on the Secretary's Committee. In order to stand for election to the Secretary's
Committee, members must make two speeches on different nights. For the other offices, this is increased to four. The
election for the Chairman of the Consultative Committee is held at CC on Monday of 8th week. Only members who
have attended four of the last eight meetings may either stand for election as Chairman or vote.

Postal III, or Akella's Postal Spin off according to Running with Scissors,
[2]
is a third-person shooter video game
developed by Russian game company Akella.
[3]
It is the third game in the Postal series and is a spin-off sequel to
Postal 2.
[4]
It was the first game not developed by Running With Scissors but rather licensed to Akella to produce
and develop.
[5]
Postal III was released in the USA for Microsoft Windows on 23 November 2011,
[6]
and releases were planned for
Linux
[7][8]
and Mac OS X.
[9]
PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 ports were announced in later stages of development,
[10]
but it has recently been revealed that budget constraints are holding back these console ports.
Gameplay
While Postal III does not continue the open world style design of its predecessor, Postal 2, it includes performances
by a wide array of minor celebrities, including Ron Jeremy, Jennifer Walcott, and Randy Jones. The game also
contains characters depicting Uwe Boll (director of the 2007 Postal film),
[11]
Sergei Mavrodi, Osama bin Laden and
Hugo Chávez.
Plot
In Postal III, The Postal Dude emigrates to Paradise's sister town of Catharsis as he previously blew up Paradise with
a nuclear bomb.
[12]
Due to the economic meltdown, the Dude drives into town and becomes stranded because he can
not afford a tank of gas. He must then find work and do various odd jobs to escape the town.
[13]
Through the course of the game, the player can choose one of two paths: the "bad path", which includes joining in on
the schemes of Mayor Chomo and Uncle Dave, or the "good path", which involves the Dude joining the Catharsis
Police force. The game plays out in a fairly linear and cinematic way, although the player's actions effect the
outcome of the story and the game. Although the "good path" is more difficult to play, it offers more story line and a
longer campaign.
[14]
Postal III
209
There are 3 Endings to the game as Postal Dude must escape from the impending Venezuelan Invasion with Hugo
Chávez leading the charge.
Evil Ending: Escaping Carthasis with the skin of his teeth and leaving Chomo, Dave and Bin Laden at the mercy of
Hockey Moms. Postal Dude winds up at the mercy of the law enforcement who was quick to give him and his dog
the death penalty for his slaughter. His appeal to heaven completely fails and Postal Dude is sent to hell.
Neutral Ending: Postal Dude succeeds in escaping Carthasis without resorting to murder or delivering swift justice
and meets Jen Wallcock who tries to hijack his car but winds up marrying him instead and enjoying the honeymoon
in Peru. He wins the lottery and has a bestselling book which details his personal view of the exploits in Postal 2 as
Champ bites on the groin of the talk show host.
Good Ending: Saving the world from Hugo Chávez, Postal Dude become one of the most popular yet controversial
heroes of American history. He winds up becoming the President of the United States with Jen Wallcock as his wife
and head of Secret Service who winds up annoying both sides of the political spectrum. As he moves into the White
House, a certain nuclear button sparks the inner psychopath within.
Regardless of the endings, Postal Dude's final words are "I regret nothing!"
Release
The game was initially released for Windows on November 23, 2011 in Russia.
[15]
It was supposed to be released on December 21, 2011 worldwide in downloadable form on Steam.
[16]
However, for
unknown reasons the Steam store belated its release, removing Postal III from its game listings. The game can still
be purchased from Direct2Drive and GameFly but still requires Steam activation and now Steam.
Austrian game distributor Gameware
[17]
released two boxed editions on December 23, 2011.
[18]
Reception
Rating aggregation site Metacritic found Postal III to be critically slammed, with an average review score of 24 out
of 100.
[19]
GameSpot gave the game 3/10, while Game Informer also lambasted the game, giving it a score of 1/10 and saying
that "the people behind Postal III don’t have the writing ability to back up their gutter-dwelling mouths. As it turns
out, they also don’t have the design or programming chops to create a stable game.". This makes it one of a handful
of games to ever receive such a low score.
In a more positive review, QJ.Net stated that the game was "one of the most interestingly written, psychotic and
harmful games I've ever played" and that the developers had "ended up with a product that looks good, sounds great
and is often funny", but also complained that their "experience was marred with constant crashing and a lot of
graphical glitches" as well as complaining that it often comes off as "mean spirited and lacking in heart".
[20]
Original Gamer gave the game a rating of 7.5, deciding that it was "a good game, just not a great one". The reviewer
praised its storyline, wide variety of weapons, and creativity while deriding the games "linear level design and
gameplay" and complaining that it takes "a while to get to the meat of the title". It also called out the games use of
good and bad paths, which he believed unfairly favoured the good path, deciding that the game "punishes you for
being bad, by being bad itself". That said, it concluded by saying that the "fun is there in Postal 3, you just have to
work a little for it."

Developer reactions
In an interview with rebelgamer.de about a month after release, Vince Desi, the head of Running with Scissors
admitted that the "fan reaction has been mixed" to Postal III, as well as stating that most of the complaints centred
around the game having "too many bugs." Desi acknowledged that it was hard for him to hear from "diehard fans
and hearing their complaints", but did however emphasise that the developers have been "making updates to fix a lot
of the problems" as well as stating that people who purchased the game at that time would have a "much better
experience."
He also commented that while RWS had "designed a very big challenging game with great variety", their
development team and publisher "were under tremendous pressure and decided to release a different game,
something that they could deliver." He did however note that he was "glad that the publisher has tried very hard to
make the necessary improvements" following the games initial reception. He also commented that they were
committed to making "sure that gamers get the best value they deserve" from Postal III.
[21]
On August 25, 2012 developer and Postal franchise owner Running with Scissors removed Postal 3 from their store,
stating that it was "in the best interest of the Postal Community" and encouraged gamers to instead purchase their
earlier titles, stating that they are "a far superior product for a lot less money".
[22]
This came after revelations that
Running with Scissors relationship with Akella had broken down and that they no longer had any real involvement
with the future development of Postal 3.
RWS explained the situation by stating that Postal III "was licensed to a Russian publisher and developer who were
supposed produce the game to our design, with a much bigger team and budget than we had for POSTAL 2. Even
taking those facts into account, it didn't work out very well. It was a mistake and one we will not repeat" and that
"after the disaster that was PIII due to the mistake of outsourcing it, we have decided to make the next game 100% in
house."
[23]
A later interview with Running with Sccissor's Jon Merchant further clarified the situation, with him stating that
"Akella had vastly more resources than we had for POSTAL 2, so it seemed reasonable at the time they could
produce a game that was at least equal to the game we made inhouse. Things started out well but I think they got hit
pretty hard by the economic problems of 2007-8, and it all started to go downhill from there. The final product was
very far removed from our original design, and horribly broken." He also commented that "the game is a broken
mess and should not be sold. We stopped selling the game ourselves some time ago when it became apparent that
neither us or the community would get the SDK tools. We don't regard it as the third POSTAL game, just a dodgy
spin off that should never have happened."

213
History
Originally formed in 1993 under the name Joe and the Chicken Heads, the group was influenced by the theatrical
bands Green Jelly and GWAR as well as the children's songs of Barry Louis Polisar and rock parodies of "Weird Al"
Yankovic.
The band changed their name to the Radioactive Chicken Heads in 2004. According to their official explanation,
"We were forced to be named the Radioactive Chicken Heads because of new government regulations which require
all radioactive farm products to be labeled clearly."
[4]
However in the Philip K. Dick novel, Do Androids Dream of
Electric Sheep? mutants with sub-standard intelligence, due to radioactive dust in the atmosphere, are referred to as
"chicken heads"
The Chicken Heads made their television debut on the Halloween 1998 episode of the Extreme Gong show,
performing their song "Pest Control" . Although they were "gonged" in mid-performance, they finished the song
anyway, claiming that they were playing so loud that they couldn't hear the gong. In 2000, they released their first
CD, Keep On Cluckin'.
The Radioactive Chicken Heads released the album "Growing Mold" in March 2005 and were featured in Blender
Magazine's October 2005 issue in the "Weird Band Alert" column.
In November 2006, the Radioactive Chicken Heads appeared on The Tyra Banks Show television show performing
"Our Last Song" on the "Tyra's Got Talent" episode in a spoof of the America's Got Talent program.
In the summer of 2008, they released the album Music For Mutants which featured the song "Headless Mike" about
the true story of Mike the Headless Chicken.
In the Fall of 2008, the Radioactive Chicken Heads embarked on their first national tour, opening for fellow
theatrical comedy rock bands Green Jellÿ and Rosemary's Billygoat in over 60 cities across the United States.
The band recorded a theme song for the indie horror movie, Atom the Amazing Zombie Killer and released it on
Poultry Uprising, a rarities album available as a limited edition CD and as a digital download in 2009.
The Radioactive Chicken Heads paid tribute to their earliest songwriting inspiration, Barry Louis Polisar by
compiling and recording songs for We're Not Kidding! A Tribute to Barry Louis Polisar, a various artists tribute
album which was released in April 2010.

Reindeer Games (also known as Deception
[2]
) is a 2000 thriller film, directed by John Frankenheimer and starring
Ben Affleck, Gary Sinise, and Charlize Theron. It was Frankenheimer's final theatrically released film and received
poor reviews.
Plot
Several unidentified dead men dressed as Santa Claus are shown in various positions. Flash back to six days earlier,
Nick and Rudy are cellmates in prison three days away from release; Rudy is incarcerated for grand theft auto. Nick
has been corresponding with a young woman named Ashley, who is waiting for him on the outside. When Nick is
killed during a prison uprising, saving Rudy’s life in the process, Rudy takes his place and lets the beautiful Ashley
think he is the one who has been writing her the love letters. Before long, Rudy discovers that pretending to be Nick
was not such a good idea after all, as some fellow criminals intend to use him for their own purposes—robbing the
casino at which Nick used to work. Gabriel, the leader of a gang who assaults Rudy and Ashley in their cabin, claims
to be Ashley's brother, rather than an old enemy of Nick's as Rudy initially assumes. Rudy tries to tell them he is not
Nick, but Ashley continues to confirm he is and that she wrote to him knowing Gabriel was going to kidnap and
force Rudy to assist in the robbery. Rudy, while furious with Ashley, is reluctantly forced to go along with his ruse
since he knows his is worthless to Gabriel as Rudy.
Reindeer Games
222
While Nick and Rudy were cell mates, Nick had told Rudy many stories of being back home and working at the
casino. Using the information from Nick’s stories, Rudy is able to devise a plan to rob the casino. Rudy informs
Gabriel that the biggest loot is hidden inside a safe in the manager’s office called the “PowWow” safe. On the night
of the robbery, Rudy breaks out of his holding in order to find a way to arm himself as he knows Gabriel will still
have him killed when the robbery is over. During this task, all he finds is a knife but he also he stumbles upon
Gabriel and Ashley together and learns that Ashley is in cahoots with Gabriel. Rather than being the reluctant,
abused sister that Rudy initially thought she was, she is actually Gabriel’s girlfriend, who was planning to set up
Nick.
The group robs the casino, each dressed as Santa Claus. Rudy, forced to take part in the robbery, hides the fact that
he knows Ashley’s secret. Shots are fired and security guards and Santas are shot. Ashley drives into the Casino
killing two policemen who have shown up and lets Nick/Rudy know she is in on the heist. All meeting in the casino
manager's office, Rudy’s true identity is revealed when Gabriel introduces him to the casino manager as Nick.
However the manager recognizes that he isn’t Nick and Rudy then confesses the real Nick died in prison and Rudy
took his place. Gabriel, furious at Rudy’s deception, spares him for a moment when he demands to know where the
"PowWow” safe is, where Rudy had earlier claimed contained embezzled money. When Rudy correctly guesses it is
behind the manager's liquor cabinet, Gabriel has the manager open the safe. When he opens it, the manager grabs
guns from inside and kills one of the robbers as the rest flee. Rudy kills another one of the robbers and is then
grabbed by Gabriel and Ashley who tie him up in their 18 wheeler truck.
They plan to drive him off the edge of a cliff in a burning vehicle located in the truck with a little of the money so
that officials will guess all had been burned. Rudy scolds Ashley for her selfish and manipulative ways saying Nick
truly loved her and how dare she plan to hurt him this way, but she lost in that Nick died happy and in love. Ashley
then fires back, pointing out Rudy’s hypocrisy as he pretended to be Nick (in order to be with Ashley) after Nick
saved his life. Rudy then realizes he never told Ashley that Nick saved his life. Gabriel knows this and questions
Ashley as to how she knew that. Realizing that she just slipped up too much information, Ashley shoots and kills
Gabriel. As she continues to prepare Rudy for going over the edge, Nick appears, having staged his death at the
prison. Rudy learns that the two had collaborated to rob the casino using Rudy and other thieves. Ashley had known
the entire time who Rudy truly was. Nick also informs Rudy that the 6 months of stories were to set him up to take
his place and Nick knew he would because Rudy is predictable.
After they tie Rudy to the steering wheel to drive off the cliff, he produces the knife he had gotten earlier and begins
to cut his bindings. He hot wires the car and reminds them that putting a car thief behind the wheel isn't a good idea.
He then sets it to reverse and crushes Nick. After Ashley begins firing at him, he rams the car into her and dives out
of the vehicle as the car with her on the hood goes over the edge of the cliff. Nick, still alive but seriously injured,
tries to convince Rudy that they can share the money, Rudy locks him in the truck and also sends it over the cliff,
resulting in an explosion. Rudy picks up the stolen cash and begins distributing it in mailboxes he comes across on
the way home.

Ronin is a 1998 crime-thriller film directed by John Frankenheimer and written by J.D. Zeik and David Mamet. It
stars Robert De Niro and Jean Reno as two of several former special forces and intelligence agents who team up to
steal a mysterious, heavily guarded suitcase while navigating a maze of shifting loyalties and alliances. The film is
noted for its car chases through Nice and Paris.
Plot
In a warehouse on the outskirts of Paris, France, Deirdre (McElhone), a young Irish woman who is a member of the
IRA, meets with Spence (Bean), Larry (Sudduth), Gregor (Skarsgård), Vincent (Reno), and Sam (De Niro), all of
whom are veterans of special operations units. Deirdre briefs the men on their mission, attacking a heavily armed
convoy and stealing a briefcase, the contents of which are never identified. Following the briefing, the team begins
assembling their equipment, and Deirdre meets with her handler, Seamus O'Rourke (Pryce), who reveals that
Russian gangsters are bidding for the case so the team must act quickly to intercept it. Later, Spence is exposed as a
fraud and summarily dismissed. The others depart for Nice, France where they observe the convoy for several days
and form a plan. They ambush the convoy and pursue the survivors through the surrounding countryside. After a
lengthy car chase and gun battle, Gregor betrays the team, steals the case, and disappears.
Ronin (film)
225
Gregor first tries to sell the case to the Russians, but his contact betrays him, and Gregor shoots him. He next
contacts Mikhi (Atkine), the leader of the gangsters, and threatens to sell the case to the IRA unless Mikhi pays a
grossly inflated price; Mikhi agrees. Meanwhile, the rest of the team track Gregor through one of Sam's old CIA
contacts and corner him in the Arles Amphitheatre. Following a hectic firefight, Gregor flees, but is captured by
Seamus, who kills Larry and escapes with Deirdre. Sam is wounded in the fight, and is taken to a villa owned by
Vincent's friend Jean-Pierre (Lonsdale). After removing the bullet and allowing Sam time to recuperate, Vincent asks
Jean-Pierre to help him locate Gregor, Deirdre, and Seamus. Meanwhile, Gregor admits to Seamus he mailed the
case to himself. Days later, as Gregor and Seamus retrieve the case, Sam confronts Deirdre, who realizes that Sam
has feelings for her and will not shoot her. Following a high-speed chase through Paris, Vincent shoots out Dierdre's
tires and sends her car over a highway overpass. Gregor emerges from the car with the briefcase and escapes, while
Deirdre and Seamus are rescued from the burning car.
Vincent and Sam discover that the case is a type used by figure skaters. Intelligence from Jean-Pierre's contacts also
suggest the Russians are involved with figure skater Natacha Kirilova (Witt), who is appearing at the local arena. At
the arena, Mikhi, in the audience watching Natacha, receives a call and goes backstage. At the meet, Gregor reveals
there is a sniper in the arena who will shoot Natacha if Mikhi betrays him. Mikhi shoots Gregor anyway, the sniper
shoots Natacha, and Mikhi leaves with the case and the money. Vincent and Sam follow the panicked crowd out of
the arena in time to see Seamus shoot Mikhi and steal the case. Sam runs ahead of Seamus and finds Deirdre sitting
in the getaway car. He urges her to leave, revealing himself as a CIA agent pursuing Seamus, not the briefcase.
Seamus shoots his way past the crowd, wounding Vincent, back to the arena, with Sam in pursuit. In the final
gunfight, Seamus is about to kill Sam, but is fatally shot by Vincent.
Days later, in a Parisian cafe, Sam and Vincent talk over radio broadcasts revealing a peace agreement reached
between Sinn Féin and the British government, partly as a result of Seamus's death. They part, and Sam drives off
with his CIA contact. Vincent pays the bill and leaves.

Production
Writer David Mamet is credited as "Richard Weisz", reportedly due to disappointment at having to share credit with
Zeik (the originating writer). According to Zeik's lawyer, Mamet's contributions were "minor", limited to adding the
character Deirdre and most of De Niro's scenes. According to Frankenheimer, however, "The credits should read:
Story by J.D. Zeik, screenplay by David Mamet. We didn't shoot a line of Zeik's script."
[1]
According to Frankenheimer's recollections on the DVD, there were 2,200 shots used to film the story. He also notes
that the film is unusual in containing no wipes, dissolves or similar techniques; all scene transitions are handled with
suitably paced cuts.
Ronin is notable for a number of car chases, the last being a particularly lengthy one through the streets and tunnels
of Paris; some scenes used up to 300 stunt drivers according to the DVD director commentary, including ex-F1
driver Jean-Pierre Jarier. Car work has been a specialty of Frankenheimer, a former amateur racing driver,
[2]
ever
since his 1966 film, Grand Prix. Although action sequences are often shot by a second unit director, Frankenheimer
did all these himself, and sometimes rode along. While he was aware of the many innovations in digital special
effects since then, he elected to film all these sequences live, to obtain the maximum level of authenticity. To further
this, many of the high-speed shots have the actual actors in the cars. Skipp Sudduth did nearly all of his own driving,
while other cars were right hand drive models with stunt drivers driving - crashes were handled by a stuntman. To
lend additional authenticity, the sound recordist re-recorded many of the vehicles in the chases to ensure that during
the editing, the right sounds were dubbed in for each vehicle.
Several cars are used in the chases, including an Audi S8 D2, a Peugeot 406, three Peugeot 605s, a Citroën Xantia
and XM, a BMW M5 E34 and Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9, a rare Mercedes-Benz W116 variant with a
high-powered engine, as noted by Frankenheimer in the DVD. Most famously, a 1998 Audi S8 quattro, portrayed as
stolen to order and then fitted with a nitrous oxide power-booster, is chosen for its bulk, grip and torque and driven
in Paris and Nice by Sudduth's character. As a result the car is rated 9th in Car magazine's Top 40 Coolest Movie
Cars.
[3]
The Frankenheimer DVD commentary indicates that the cars were towed through the streets of France at
high speed, not simulated, by a Mercedes-Benz 500E.
The final scene at the Zénith de Paris had 2,000 extras, according to Frankenheimer.
Porn star Ron Jeremy had a small role playing a fishmonger in Paris whose stall is demolished during the chase, but
his scene was cut by the studio when audiences laughed as he was recognized.
[4]
DVD and Blu-ray release
The DVD release has an extensive, detailed commentary about the making of the film by Frankenheimer, where he
explains the production techniques used to realize the high speed chases.
The DVD's paper insert includes excerpts from a Frankenheimer interview in which he discusses the chase through a
Paris tunnel that is remarkably similar to the site of Princess Diana's death on 31 August 1997. The filming took
place in a different tunnel, however. "Paris has a lot of tunnels," Frankenheimer commented. "That’s part of the thing
about the city I wanted people to see. A crash in a tunnel in Paris is about as likely as someone having a crash on a
freeway here. It happens all the time." (Rocky Mountain News, September 27, 1998).
The US edition of the original DVD release has several navigational hooks to DVD-ROM content, which were taken
advantage of several weeks after the original release of the DVD, on MGM's website during a special 'RONIN' event
where viewers would be taken on a guided tour of the making of RONIN. Making of scenes shot during filming are
hidden on the DVD. Since they are not present on the main menu of the DVD they can only be accessed on a
computer using the DVD-ROM program that is on the disc or using a DVD viewing program that allows navigation
through the titles of the disc manually. A "Gold Edition" was briefly introduced on the market by MGM, however is
no longer in production.

On October 11, 2004 a two-disc Special Edition of the film was released in the US. This new version contains the
same material as the old single-disc version on disc one and on disc two there are supplemental material about the
film: one documentary, six featurettes, and a picture gallery.
A Blu-ray Disc edition was made available in 2008, which does not include any of the extras on the DVD versions.

Spun is a 2002 American crime comedy-drama directed by Jonas Åkerlund, and starring Jason Schwartzman,
Brittany Murphy, Mickey Rourke, Mena Suvari, John Leguizamo, Patrick Fugit, Eric Roberts, Chloe Hunter and
Debbie Harry. It is Åkerlund's début as a feature-film director, having already become known for his work in music
videos. The film was shot in 22 days, and centers on various people involved in a methamphetamine drug ring. The
film blends elements of dark comedy and drama in its storytelling. Its title is a reference to the slang term for the way
users feel after going multiple days without sleep while on a methamphetamine binge.
Plot
Ross (Jason Schwartzman) is a customer of Spider Mike (John Leguizamo), a methamphetamine dealer. Spider Mike
and his girlfriend Cookie (Mena Suvari) are constantly arguing, and Ross strikes up a friendship with Nikki (Brittany
Murphy), a fellow addict. Nikki takes Ross to meet her boyfriend, "The Cook" (Mickey Rourke), who supplies
Spider Mike with drugs from a meth lab he has set up in a motel room. The Cook gives a small amount of meth to
Ross in exchange for bringing Nikki home, and says that he will get in touch with Ross if he needs a driver.
Back at his apartment, Ross gets messages from his mother and his former girlfriend, Amy, wishing him a happy
birthday; Amy is also demanding that he pay back $450 that he owes her. Ross, assuming she still loves him, calls
Spun
229
her and leaves a message. He then goes to the local strip club while high, leading to an intense pornographic
hallucination. He takes one of the dancers, April (Chloe Hunter), home and has sex with her in a variety of positions,
the last of which leaves her handcuffed and tied to the bed. As they finish, the Cook calls with an emergency
regarding Nikki's dog. April tells him to untie her but Ross, still high, duct-tapes April's eyes and mouth shut to keep
her quiet and leaves without releasing her, playing music to cover her gagged screams. While Ross and Nikki take
the dog to the veterinarian, policemen and a TV crew raid the trailer where Frisbee (Patrick Fugit), another one of
Spider Mike's customers, lives, falsely believing that a meth lab is located there. They take Frisbee and his
overweight mother into custody, where they threaten him into cooperation in a drug bust.
The same day, Ross and the Cook stop by a local gas station to pick up a case of ephedrine pills and a soda. Next
they go to a liquor store to purchase beer; here the Cook beats up a customer for disrespecting the two female clerks.
They then visit an adult film store, where the Cook preaches about the values of pornography in America. Ross calls
Amy's house again, but to no avail. He then calls to check on April saying he's coming soon hanging up as she
squeals and struggles. He drops the Cook off at his place and rushes home to April, who is still gagged and tied to
the bed. He untapes her but when she starts to scream, he quickly regags her to keep his neighbor from finding her.
In the Cook's motel room, he and Nikki have a fight after a prostitute arrives in response to the Cook's call. Nikki
ends their relationship, and calls Ross (who is making out with the bound and gagged April) and asks him to take her
to a bus station so she can go back to Las Vegas. Ross leaves April (after she asks to be untied) again, who is still
tied to the bed, and regags her; she is subsequently rescued by Ross's lesbian neighbor (Debbie Harry), who beats up
the same liquor store customer when he disrespects the clerks again.
While Ross and Nikki are out, Frisbee is coerced by the cops to wear a wire and buy some meth from Spider Mike so
they can arrest him. When he enters, Cookie attempts to make love to him, her revenge on Spider Mike for his use of
a phone sex line. She finds the wire, and the cops rush in to make the drug bust. Spider Mike, furious at Frisbee's
betrayal, shoots him in the testicles, and Spider Mike and Cookie are arrested. Meanwhile, the Cook's meth lab
catches fire and destroys the motel room. He takes off to the adult film store, where he is arrested after the owner
(Rob Halford) calls the police. Once the Cook makes bail, he calls Ross asking for a ride to another dealer's house in
the city after he drops Nikki off at the station. Ross learns of everyone else's arrests, and agrees to drive him there, as
well as visit Amy, who also lives in the city.
The dealer (Eric Roberts) provides the Cook with cash, some meth, and the equipment to start a new lab. Ross calls
Amy again, and leaves a message asking to see her and that he has her money with him. The Cook promises six
months' worth of meth to Ross in exchange for being his chauffeur; he agrees on the condition that he can see Amy
first. Amy, who has gotten her life together and found work in the city, leaves him in the park after seeing that he is
still using drugs. He gives her $100 of the money he owes her, and leaves with the Cook. Finally, after several days
of nonstop activity fueled by drug use, the main characters all go to sleep except for the Cook. As Ross naps in his
car, the Cook starts up a new lab in an old trailer, but blows it and himself up in the process.

Reception
The film received mixed reactions, with some analysts remarking that the film added nothing new to the genre of
drug movies. Time Out London was particularly harsh, accusing the film of "smug amoralism", and claiming that
Åkerlund simply re-uses other people's ideas and techniques.
[1]
Roger Ebert was more sympathetic in his review, where he described the film as having "effortless wickedness". His
main appraisal is the fact that the film in no way attempts to romanticise any of the characters. He does, however,
explicitly mention the similarities between this and the earlier Requiem for a Dream.
[2]
This comparison may not
have been lost on the filmmakers. The title on a pornographic tape purchased by a character reads "Rectum for a
Dream", and the scenes which show consumption of the drug also show its constricting effect on the pupils in fast
cutscenes.
Soundtrack
The original music for Spun was written by Billy Corgan. The soundtrack to the film features songs by artists such as
Iron Maiden (performed by The Djali Zwan), Ozzy Osbourne, Mötley Crüe, Blues Traveler, Bathory (for whom
Åkerlund played drums for early on), Richie Havens, Phantom Planet (with which Jason Schwartzman played drums
at the time), Per Gessle (male half of Roxette), Paola, and Satyricon, whose video for the song "Mother North"
appears in the movie.

Star-ving is a web series of episodes running eight to ten minutes, based very loosely on the life of David Faustino
from Married... with Children. His co-star is Corin Nemec, who played the title character in Parker Lewis Can't
Lose. The start date for the episodes was January 16, 2009. The series is a production of FNB Entertainment LLC in
association with Sony Pictures Television, webcast on Crackle.
History
In 2006, Faustino and his writing partners, Corin Nemec and Todd Bringewatt, started a production company called
F.N.B. Entertainment. In 2007, they wrote a two-page treatment for Star-ving, which they took to director Sam Kass,
a former writer and producer on Seinfeld. After shooting the pilot, they took it to Crackle, where twelve webisodes
were ordered.
[2]
In the series, "Faustino plays an exaggerated version of himself — he's broke, can't find a job and
his wife has left him for Coolio."
[3]
Faustino has said of the show, "We don't push the envelope, we're shredding
it."

Release date(s) 1993
Running time 78 minutes (Super Hornio Brothers)

Language English
Super Hornio Brothers and Super Hornio Brothers II are pornographic parodies of the Super Mario franchise
made in 1993, released the same time as the Super Mario Bros. film. Both films star Buck Adams, T.T. Boy, Ron
Jeremy, and Chelsea Lynx as the main characters. Considered by some as the "holy grail" of pornographic parodies,
the films gained new interest after a write up by Something Awful sought out copies to review for its "Horrors of
Pornography" column. Both parts were bought up by Nintendo to halt their distribution.
Plot
Super Hornio Brothers
Computer programmer Squeegie Hornio (Ron Jeremy) and his brother Ornio Hornio (T.T. Boy) are teleported into
Squeegie's in-development computer game after a freak power overload. After regaining their bearings, Squeegie
figures out and explains to Ornio that they are stuck in the black void of a computer monitor when it's turned off. A
computer virus informs the brothers that King Pooper (Buck Adams) has kidnapped Princess Perlina (Chelsea Lynx).
King Pooper intends on forcefully having Perlina help him travel to Earth with a tub full of semen energized by a
special generator.
Squeegie and Ornio travel through the computer world, encountering other villains who attempt to delay them and
hamper their efforts. Squeegie is temporarily separated from his brother in the process. Finding King Pooper's lair
first, Squeegie attempts to free Princess Perlina, only to be found by King Pooper. Attempting to fight King Pooper
alone, Squeegie is about to lose when Ornio reappears and shoves King Pooper into the tub, where he melts and dies.
The brothers ask Princess Perlina to teleport them back to Earth, but Perlina only transports herself and Ornio back,
leaving Squeegie behind in the cyberworld. Attempting to manipulate the generator to get back to the real world,
Squeegie is confronted and appears to be captured by a revived King Pooper.
Super Hornio Brothers
235
Super Hornio Brothers II
After a lengthy recap of the first installment, Princess Perlina and Ornio teleport back to Squeegie's office.
Wondering where Squeegie is, Ornio is distracted by Princess Perlina offering sex as a reward for saving her from
King Pooper. After the sexual intercourse, Ornio asks Perlina to bring Squeegie back to the real world. The
teleportation goes horribly wrong; Perlina teleports both Squeegie and King Pooper just as King Pooper confronts
Squeegie at the generator seen at the end of Super Hornio Brothers. King Pooper escapes, and begins to enact his
ultimate goal, bluntly explained by Perlina to the Hornio Brothers as "procreate and create more King Pooper
offspring." While King Pooper hires a prostitute to start his plan, Squeegie theorizes that the generator is the key to
King Pooper's scheme and draws up plans to destroy it.
Mimicking what they did the first time around, Squeegie and Ornio teleport back into the computer. Guided by the
computer virus, Ornio distracts a villainess which allows Squeegie and the computer virus to go back to King
Pooper's lair. Squeegie comes up with a plan to thwart King Pooper by having the computer virus "overload" the
generator and knock it out. The computer virus rubs his body against the machine, causing it to overload. Squeegie
explains to Ornio and Princes Perlina back in the real world that by overloading the generator, King Pooper is now in
"a state of limbo" and won't cause any more trouble. Ecstatic, Princess Perlina embraces and hugs Ornio while
ignoring Squeegie. A spurned Squeegie turns to the camera and says that he expected the film to end this way.

Production
Initially, porn studio Sin City Entertainment funded the project, but dropped out, leaving Buck Adams to seek the
help of Midnight Video to finish the film. In return for funding, Adams was asked by Midnight Video to trim the
37-page script, split the film into two, and to cut the filming schedule from three days to two.
[1][2]
Initially thought of as a rumor,
[3][4]
Ron Jeremy's official site notes that while they would love to make both films
available alongside the massive library they have, Nintendo bought up the rights to both films to halt distribution
indefinitely.
[5]
Something Awful
In July 2008, Zack Parsons of Something Awful was tipped off by a forum post claiming that there was a
pornographic parody of Super Mario Bros. Initially dismissed as fake, upon being confirmed as real, Something
Awful attempted to buy the film through retailers with no luck. In August 2008, Parsons issued a challenge for
Something Awful's "Horrors of Pornography" section of the site to obtain a copy of the film to review.
[3]
After
numerous false leads ranging from SA users giving a sex only CD-ROM with none of the dialogue scenes to people
remembering they once had it but ultimately having some other porno they mistook for Super Hornio Brothers to
one seller wanting $300 for the coveted copy, an anonymous benefactor gave Something Awful a DVD-rip of Super
Hornio Brothers 2 for SA to review in June 2009. Super Hornio Brothers 2 contained a recap of Super Hornio
Brothers, which was sufficient enough for Something Awful to play catch-up with the first film.
[2]
The Something Awful article is often the basis of other sites "finding out" about and making articles about the porn
parody.
[4][6][7][8]
In addition, the films are claimed to have both existed and not existed by many people.
[1][2][3]
Reception
In the "Horrors of Pornography" column, Something Awful's Zack Parsons, reviewing Super Hornio Brothers 2,
gave it a −33 rating, and noted that Buck Adams did a much better adaptation of the Super Mario franchise than the
Super Mario Bros. live-action film.
[2]
Initially, Parsons wondered how such a film escaped the attention of the
Internet for so long.
[3]
The Cinema Snob reviewed both Super Hornio Brothers and Super Hornio Brothers 2. While noting that the films
are considered to be the "holy grail" of pornographic parodies, The Cinema Snob ripped into both of them, noting the
inconsistencies of the pornographic parodies, ranging from how characters were named and cast, ways that the films
could better themselves using various Super Mario video game sound effects, to overt references to 1990s Los
Angeles such as the 1992 Los Angeles riots.
[1][9]
Kotaku, blogging the search for the pornographic films by Something Awful in December 2011, noted Gameranx's
reception to the them as being "disappointing," while adding that their memories of the Super Mario Brothers game
did not include a spider woman or (tongue in cheek) hardcore sex.

Tales from the Crapper is a 2004 straight-to-video anthology film that was a spoof of the Tales from the Crypt
comics. The film was released by Troma Entertainment.
Tales from the Crapper
239
Plot
Troma Entertainment co-founder and B-movie director and producer Lloyd Kaufman plays the Crap Keeper. He
presents the viewers with two horror stories that contain gore, nudity, fat men, talking penises, lesbian scenes,
vampires, UFOs, and appearances by porn star Ron Jeremy and the band New Found Glory. The film was
purportedly shot over three years with six directors and close to fifteen writers.
[1]
Production
The movie started pre-production in early 2001, after a successful digitized web-comic starring Yaniv Sharon
entitled Tales From the Crapper hit the Troma website. After the three-part comic was done, Troma President Lloyd
Kaufman wanted a real series on their website to be made. A contract was done with India Allen, who had recently
produced and directed the film The Rowdy Girls which Troma distributed. The budget for the first season was
$200,000 USD.
After more than a year of production, Troma received the footage that was shot and it was unwatchable. In some
cases, there was missing sound, the camera-work seemed unprofessional. All of the episodes were unfinished. Lloyd
Kaufman and Michael Herz were even more displeased when they found out that the entire budget was gone. In
order to salvage the project, Lloyd Kaufman got former Troma alumni to re-work the script and find new uses for the
footage shot. In 2003, re-shooting began both in Los Angeles and New York with Kaufman overseeing production.
Gabriel Friedman, Troma's editor at the time, had made a list of the shots that were needed for the rewrites that they
were working on. Despite Friedman and Kaufman being clear on what to do, many problems arose as well in the
re-shoot with incompetent crew members. This led to years of post-production. In order to make scenes fit together
and due to the lack of sound on most of the footage, many scenes had to be re-dubbed. Both segments, which started
out as horror films with a slice of comedy, had now become over-the-top comedy. While Troma is most well known
for its horror films, they have acquired foreign films and released them with completely original dialogue for
comedic effect, including Ferocious Female Freedom Fighters and Parts of the Family. Ferocious Female Freedom
Fighters is one of Troma's most popular comedies. While Tales From the Crapper has gotten mixed reviews over the
years, many fans of Troma like the film and have given it a positive rating.

Tamara Faye LaValley Bakker Messner (March 7, 1942 – July 20, 2007) was an American Christian singer,
evangelist, entrepreneur, author, talk show host, and television personality. She was married from 1961 to 1992 to
televangelist, and later convicted felon, Jim Bakker. She co-hosted with him on The PTL Club (1976–1987). She was
a participant in the 2004 season of the reality show The Surreal Life.
[2]
Early life
The eldest of eight children, Tammy Faye was born Tamara Faye LaValley in International Falls, Minnesota, to
Pentecostal preachers Carl and Rachel Fairchild LaValley. Her parents were married in 1941, one year before
Tammy Faye was born. Shortly after she was born, a painful divorce soured her mother against other ministers,
[3]
alienating her from the church. After the divorce, Tammy Faye continued living in a strict atmosphere with her
mother and brother. In 1948, when she was six, her mother married Fred Grover, who worked in paper mills. His
salary increased their income, but the marriage also added six children to the household.
As a girl child in the 1950s, she helped her mother with household chores and babysat her younger siblings; but she
was often spoiled by her favorite aunt, Virginia Fairchild, who was a retired department store manager. She attended
her aunt's church in 1952.
Tammy Faye Messner
242
When she was accompanied by a friend to the Assemblies of God church, at age 10, she said she "felt the glow of
God's love and wanted to call herself upon the Lord." Her entire family gathered around her for celebrations,
particularly Christmas, which was her favorite holiday. In 1956, she started spending summers at Bible camp and
was voted "Queen". Also in 1956, she attended Falls High School, where she sang in the choir, and got an
after-school job at Woolworth's. She didn't attend school dances, baseball games, or even movies, as her church did
not allow it. Before she graduated in 1960, her mother suggested that Tammy Faye would become a minister.
Marriage to Jim Bakker
In 1960, she met Jim Bakker when they were students at North Central Bible College in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
[4]
Tammy Faye worked in a boutique for a time while Jim found work in a restaurant inside a department store in
Minneapolis. They were married on April 1, 1961. The following year, they moved to South Carolina, where they
began their ministry.
Their marriage produced two children, Tammy Sue (Sissy) Bakker Chapman (born 1970) and Jamie Charles (Jay)
Bakker (born 1975).
PTL Club
Jim and Tammy Bakker had been involved with television from the time of their departure from Minneapolis until
they moved to the Charlotte area via Portsmouth, Virginia, where they were founding members of the 700 Club.
While in Portsmouth, they were hosts of the popular children's show "Jim and Tammy". They then created a puppet
ministry for children on Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) from 1964 to 1973 and co-founded
the Trinity Broadcasting Network with personal friends Paul and Jan Crouch in California. Jim and Tammy founded
the PTL Club (Praise The Lord) in the mid-1970s.
During the PTL shows, she provided a sentimental touch to stories and loved to sing. In a move that sharply
distinguished her from other televangelists, she showed a more tolerant attitude regarding homosexuality, and she
featured people suffering from AIDS on PTL, urging her viewers to follow Christ and show sympathy and pray for
the sick.
PTL collapse
The Bakkers' control of PTL collapsed in 1987 after revelations that $287,000 had been paid from the organization to
buy the silence of Jessica Hahn, who claims a forced sexual encounter with Jim Bakker.
The revelations invited scrutiny of the Bakkers, and charges made about their opulent lifestyle, including media
reports of an air-conditioned doghouse at their Tega Cay, South Carolina, lakefront parsonage as well as gold-plated
bathroom fixtures, dominated newscasts in the 1980s. The Bakkers' home, owned by the ministry, was actually an
older home built in the early 1970s, and it was a few miles away from Heritage USA. Jim Bakker stated that the
much-talked-about dog house was heated with an old heater to keep the dogs warm in the winter and the reported
gold-plated fixtures were actually brass. The home was later sold by the ministry and burned to the ground not long
thereafter. Jim Bakker wrote in his book I Was Wrong that he watched the home burn on live television while
incarcerated.
The epilogue from the publishers of this book contains the following:
On July 22, 1996, shortly after Jim Bakker had completed the writing of this book, a federal jury ruled that
PTL was not selling securities by offering Lifetime Partnerships at Heritage USA. The jury's ruling thus
affirms what Jim Bakker has contended from the first day he was indicted and throughout this volume.
The Charlotte Observer ran exposés of PTL's finances and management practices. PTL went bankrupt after being
taken over by controversial Lynchburg, Virginia-based Baptist televangelist Jerry Falwell, who offered to step in
Tammy Faye Messner
243
following the scandals in 1988.
[5]
Charges surfaced that Falwell's interest in PTL and Heritage USA was solely an
attempt to gain control of its profitable cable television network, something which Falwell was unsuccessful in
establishing for his own ministry despite numerous requests to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for
permission to obtain a satellite license. Tammy Faye later forgave Falwell regarding these tactics before Falwell's
death in 2007, two months before Tammy Faye's own death.
After PTL
Marriage to Roe Messner
Tammy stood by Bakker through the scandal, including several instances when she cried on camera. In 1989 Bakker
was sentenced to 45 years in prison on 24 fraud and conspiracy counts.
In 1992, while Bakker was still in prison she filed for divorce, saying in a letter to the New Covenant Church in
Orlando, Florida:
For years I have been pretending that everything is all right, when in fact I hurt all the time...I cannot pretend
anymore.
[6]
On October 3, 1993, she married Roe Messner in Rancho Mirage, California,
[7]
after Messner divorced his own wife.
They moved to the Charlotte suburb of Matthews, North Carolina. Tammy and Roe were neighbors to Christian
recording star and friend David L Cook.
Messner, who had a contracting business, Messner Enterprises, in the Andover, Kansas, suburb of Wichita, Kansas,
had built much of Heritage USA as well as numerous other large churches and had been a family friend to the
Bakkers throughout the PTL years.
Messner was the one who produced the money for the $265,000 payment to Hahn, later billing PTL for work never
completed on the Jerusalem Amphitheater at Heritage USA.
[8]
In the Bakkers' fraud trial, Messner testified for Bakker's defense saying that Falwell had sent Messner to the Bakker
home in Palm Springs, California, to make an offer to "keep quiet."
According to Messner's testimony, Tammy wrote the offer on her stationery, listing a $300,000-a-year lifetime salary
for Jim, $100,000 a year for Tammy, a house, and a year's worth of free phone calls and health insurance. However,
Messner said that Bakker wrote on it: "I'm not making any demands on PTL. I'm not asking for anything.".
[9][10]
Falwell denied making any offer.
In the messy bankruptcy of PTL, Messner was listed as the single biggest creditor of PTL with an outstanding claim
of $14 million. In court papers, the new operators accused Messner of $5.3 million in inflated or phony billings to
PTL.
[11]
Messner filed for personal and corporate bankruptcy in 1990, saying he owed nearly $30 million to more than 300
creditors. He wound up being convicted of bankruptcy fraud. As he faced sentencing in 1996, he said that he could
not afford to treat his prostate cancer because he lacked health insurance.
[12]
In July 2007, on more solid financial footing, the Messners relocated to a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri, the
Village of Loch Lloyd, Missouri. Coincidentally, Jim Bakker had also moved to Missouri (in 2003), 200 miles
southeast of Loch Lloyd in Branson, Missouri. Tammy Faye told Entertainment Tonight they had moved to the
"dream house" to be closer to Roe's children and grandchildren from his first marriage. The children still live in the
Wichita area.

Back in the public eye
As her second husband was jailed and she was first diagnosed with colon cancer, she re-entered the public eye in a
series of books, movies and television appearances.
In 1996 she wrote her autobiography, Tammy: Telling It My Way (ISBN 0679445153), and she co-hosted a TV talk
show titled The Jim J. and Tammy Faye Show with Jim J. Bullock.
She was the subject of a documentary titled The Eyes of Tammy Faye (1999) and a follow-up film titled Tammy
Faye: Death Defying (2004) from Lions Gate Entertainment.
She appeared twice on The Drew Carey Show in 1996 and 1999, playing the mother of character Mimi Bobeck
(Kathy Kinney), who was also known for wearing excessive amounts of makeup.
On September 11, 2003, she published a new autobiography, I Will Survive... and You Will, Too! (ISBN
1585422428), in which she described her battles with cancer and her life with Messner.
In 2005, she appeared in an infomercial for alternative medicine promoter Kevin Trudeau. On her site,
Tammyfaye.com she credits green supplements as a helpful part of her initial colon cancer remission.
Despite her background in Christian fundamentalism, Tammy Faye became a gay icon after her parting from PTL,
appearing in Gay Pride marches with such figures as Lady Bunny and Bruce Vilanch. She supported the LGBT
rights movement, including same-sex marriage.
[14]
The Surreal Life
In early 2004, she appeared on the second season of the VH1 reality television series The Surreal Life. The show
chronicled a twelve-day period wherein she, Ron Jeremy, Vanilla Ice, Traci Bingham, Erik Estrada and Trishelle
Cannatella lived together in a Los Angeles house and were assigned various tasks and activities.
Together, the six put on a children's play and managed a restaurant for a day. She also attended a book signing for
her best-seller, I Will Survive... And You Will Too.
At the end of the show, Messner said she thought of Vanilla Ice and Trishelle Cannatella as children and could relate
to them deeply because she had similar feelings and problems when she was their age. She described porn star
Jeremy as "a nice man."
Cancer
Tammy Faye's 11-year battle with cancer was highly publicized. She was first diagnosed with colon cancer in March
1996, and the disease went into remission by the end of that year.
[15]
On March 19, 2004, Tammy Faye made an appearance on Larry King Live and announced that she had inoperable
lung cancer and would soon begin chemotherapy.
[16]
She continued receiving chemotherapy throughout mid-2004.
On November 30, 2004, also on Larry King Live, she announced that she was cancer free once again. She described
the details of her chemotherapy and continued to appear regularly on King's show. A 2004 television documentary of
her struggle with cancer was produced in 2004.
[17][18]
It was on King's program again that she announced, on July
20, 2005, that her cancer had returned.
[19]
On March 13, 2006, she appeared again on Larry King Live and stated that she was continuing to suffer from lung
cancer, which had reached stage 4, and that she was continuing to receive treatment for it. She also mentioned
having difficulty swallowing food, suffering from panic attacks, and enduring substantial weight loss. As her health
continued to worsen, a "Talk of the Town" article in the October 2, 2006, issue of The New Yorker stated that she
was dying in hospice care, and a December 10, 2006, article in Walter Scott's column in Parade reported that her son
Jay was "at a North Carolina hospice with his mom, [who is] gravely ill with colon cancer".
[20]
Tammy Faye was a guest by phone on CNN's Larry King Live on December 15, 2006, and stated that she was
receiving hospice care in her home. Tammy Faye appeared in her son Jay's documentary series One Punk Under
Tammy Faye Messner
245
God, wherein she and Jay talked about her cancer treatments. In one episode, Tammy Faye required the use of
oxygen in order to talk.
On May 8, 2007, she issued a statement on her website saying that chemo therepy had stopped, but urging her fans to
continue to pray for her.
[21]
The story was reported on NBC's The Today Show on May 11, and a feature in which
fans and well-wishers could post get-well messages to Tammy was added to her website. As of July 2007, over 228
pages of wishes had been received.
[22]
On July 19, 2007, Tammy Faye made another appearance on CNN's Larry King Live in what turned out to be her
final interview (she died the following day, just hours after the broadcast). At the time, she said she weighed
65 pounds and was unable to eat solid food. Messner's husband would later say that he believed that she chose to do
the interview to say a final goodbye to her followers. During the interview, Messner had this message:
I'd like to say that I genuinely love you, and I genuinely care, and I genuinely want to see you in heaven
someday. I want you to find peace. I want you to find joy.
Death
On July 20, 2007, at 4 am,
[23]
Messner died following an 11-year battle with cancer. What had started as colon
cancer had spread to her lungs. She died in her home, said her publicist, Joe Spotts. A family service was held on the
morning of July 21, 2007, in the Messner family plot in Waldron, Kansas,
[24]
where her ashes were interred. The
ceremony was officiated by the Rev. Randy McCain, the pastor of Open Door Community Church
[25]
in Sherwood,
Arkansas.
[23]
She had frequently spoken about her medical problems, saying she hoped to be an inspiration to others.
"Don't let fear rule your life," she said. "Live one day at a time, and never be afraid." She had written on her website
in May that the doctors had stopped trying to treat the cancer. She died the day after the airing of her interview on
Larry King Live on CNN. According to CNN.com, the family requested that King officially report the news of her
death on July 21, 2007.
[26]
Legacy
In June 2006, a stage musical titled The Gospel According to Tammy Faye opened at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival
and is currently being developed for a larger professional production.
[27]
The show features songs by J. T. Buck and
a book by Fernando Dovalina. The musical is described as a fantasia which takes a balanced and fair look at its
subject. The impetus for the show was provided by a lengthy interview that Messner gave the authors in March
2005.
[28][29]
The musical aired on August 2006 in Portland, Oregon, and Hood River, Oregon, it was presented on
stage at Houston's Alley Theatre at the end of July 2007 under the direction of Les R. Wood. Industry readings
presented by the Columbia Gorge Repertory Company were held at the Manhattan Theatre Club in December 2007
the cast including Tony nominee Sally Mayes and veteran Broadway performers William Youmans, Ken Land, Julie
Foldesi, James T. Lane and Heather Parcells. The readings were directed by Mindy Cooper. Seth Farber provided
musical direction.
Another musical following the life of Tammy Faye, titled Big Tent, debuted May 23, 2007 at Off-Broadway's New
World Stages, in New York City. The show features music and lyrics by Ben Cohn, Sean McDaniel, a book by
Jeffery Self, and direction by Ryan J. Davis.
[30]
A star-studded concert of songs from the show opened February 18,
2008 at New York's Metropolitan Room.

Terror Firmer is a 1999 comedy horror film directed by Lloyd Kaufman, written by Patrick Cassidy and Douglas
Buck, and starring Will Keenan, Alyce LaTourelle, and Kaufman. The film was produced by the Troma
Entertainment company, known for distributing campy exploitation films. The film features several direct references
to the previous Troma films, such as The Toxic Avenger, and includes famous Troma props, like the 'Penis Monster'
(referred to, in the film, as "Thor, the God of Love") and a severed leg. It was loosely based, in that respect, on
Kaufman's and James Gunn's book All I Need to Know about Filmmaking I Learned from the Toxic Avenger.
While most reviewers agree that the film's references to other Troma films are clever and well-executed for an
exploitation film, some critics deem the film's use of "trashy" elements overly gratuitous.

Plot
This is the story of a New York low-budget film crew, led by their insane and egostical blind film director, Larry
Benjamin, who is trying to create a work of art. In addition to the typical trials and travails of a Troma set, the crew
is preyed upon by a sexually conflicted, bomb-toting serial killer. Among the large poorly-paid film crew, the movie
centers mostly on production assistant Jennifer, who struggles to do her job while deciding between the two men in
her life; the straight-laced boom operator Casey, and the rebellious special effects operator Jerry. The love triangle
intensifies as the dead bodies mount with increasingly brutality. At the climax, the entire film crew bands together
(both physically and sexually) against the mortal threat in their midst.

[3]
The end credits states, "A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO: The New York City Police Department, for their
unstinting cooperation and invaluable help throughout every part of this production." The documentary The Making
of Terror Firmer shows the police clashing with the production on several instances (one of which involved the
police revoking the crew's filming permit).

Alternate versions
•• The 2-Disc Special Edition gives the viewer a choice to watch the Director's Unrated Cut or to watch the
Director's Unrated Cut with even more deleted scenes put back into the film. This makes the film's running time
131 minutes.
•• The 98-minute release R-rated version features several boxes that contain the words "CENSORED", covering
various body parts (whether nude or dismembered). Additionally, for the heavier cut scenes, the movie freezes
and a window appears on the screen with Kaufman explaining or comically re-enacting what was supposed to go
on in the scene. The voices of characters uttering profanity at some moments are replaced by an obviously
mismatched voice that says the accepted version of the word. Finally, some body parts are replaced by images of
animals (e.g. a pussy cat).
•• The unrated director's cut runs 114 minutes.

The Chase is a 1994 action comedy film starring Charlie Sheen and Kristy Swanson. Released a few months before
the real-life O. J. Simpson chase that also took place in California, the film includes Henry Rollins as a police officer
and features cameos from Ron Jeremy and both Anthony Kiedis and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It references
Apocalypse Now (after the ending credits) and Convoy, and inspired the song "Charlie Sheen Vs. Henry Rollins" by
Alexisonfire.
Plot summary
In its essentials, the plot is the same as that of Roger Corman's 1955 film The Fast and the Furious.
Twenty-eight year-old Jackson "Jack" Davis Hammond (Charlie Sheen) is sentenced to twenty-five years in prison
for an armed robbery he didn't commit, but manages to escape. To get away from the police while at a convenience
store, he takes a hostage, California heiress Natalie Voss (Kristy Swanson), the only daughter of multi-millionaire
Dalton Voss (Ray Wise). Threatening Natalie with a candy bar, posing for a gun, Jack disarms a pair of unseasoned,
intervening officers. Jack takes their guns then drives off in Natalie's BMW. The chase quickly becomes broadcast
live on every TV channel, with scenes filming news coverage from helicopters, the backseat of a police car, and the
pavement of the highway. Natalie eventually gets to know Jack during the chase, and later sympathizes with the
"gun-wielding, cop-shooting, maniac kidnapper" by comparing her life to his and realizes their similarities despite
having different backgrounds. She falls in love with him and begins to believe in him. Later they start kissing and
end up having sex while Jack is driving. Jack plans on escaping into Mexico and Natalie proposes a future together.
When the cops block off the border crossing to Mexico, Jack stops before reaching the border, and releases Natalie.
She reluctantly leaves and in the final confrontation with the police, Jack appears to be defiant and goes down in a
The Chase (1994 film)
252
blaze of glory. Moments later, however, this is revealed to be a mental projection of what would happen if he doesn't
surrender. Jack surrenders but Natalie takes a television producer hostage with the gun given to her by Jack before
she was surrendered to the police. Natalie blows up a nearby police helicopter, hijacks a news helicopter and escapes
with Jack across the border into Mexico. The next scene reveals that after some time has passed, the pair are relaxing
in freedom on a beach.

Production
•• The director told Henry Rollins that he was funnier than the lines written in the script. Consequently, almost all of
his performance is ad libbed.
• The extensive chase and crash scenes were not filmed on a California expressway, but on a newly completed and
unopened stretch of highway in Harris County, on the north side of Houston, Texas (specifically- the Hardy
Tollway and a stretch of U.S. 290). Dozens of mature palm trees were trucked in and planted along the highway
to provide southern California ambiance.
• The car used by Charlie Sheen throughout most of the film is a red BMW E36 325iS (Natalie's car), however
during some parts of love-making scene between him and Swanson, it is shot in a larger BMW E34 5 Series.
Critical reaction
The film earned mostly negative reviews from critics, holding a 29% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Chicago Sun Times critic Roger Ebert wrote at the time: "'The Chase,' a movie named with unerring accuracy, takes
place mostly in a car on a California expressway, where love blooms during a high-speed police pursuit. Once you
grasp that premise, you know where the movie's going and more or less everything that is going to happen in it, so
the surprise is that 'The Chase' does such a good job within its limited range." Ebert gave the film two-and-a-half
stars.
[1]
Critic James Berardinelli, who also gave the movie two-and-a-half stars out of four,
[2]
said: "As an example of
modern cinematic art, The Chase is an utter failure. As a character study, it can't get past the comic book stage. As a
tightly-plotted thriller, it's missing about half the storyline. But, as a piece of unfettered, unpretentious entertainment,
it hits the bullseye."
The Chase (1994 film)
253
Both Ebert and Berardinelli gave particular attention and praise to the movie's criticism of the television news
industry (reporters for various networks covering the chase/hostage situation perform absurd, even dangerous, stunts
in order to one-up each other in pursuit of a better 'exclusive', and the networks, rather than cover the story in a
professional manner, add taglines to the story like "TERROR ON THE HIGHWAY" in an obvious effort to bolster
ratings.)

of celebrities appear on it during its two series run between 2004 and 2005. After the completion of the second series
in 2005, Five revealed that they would not be airing any further series of the show.

Format
In the UK version of The Farm, the show puts a group of celebrities on a farm where they live together for a short
period of time. On the farm, the contestants must work like a normal farmer does, doing agriculture and raising
animals for example. In regular periods of time, one of the contestants is evicted from the farm by way of a public
telephone vote. This process is continued until only one contestant remains, and then they gain the title of 'Top
Farmer'.

[2]
and eventually went to air from 26 September 2004, presented
and narrated by Ed Hall. The show's first series broadcast in a nightly 10pm slot from 26 September to 17 October
2004.
The show's first series caused plenty of controversy for Five when in October 2004 it showed Rebecca Loos
masturbating a pig and collecting a semen sample from it.
[3]
This incident among others also caused outrage from the
RSPCA.

The Rules of Attraction is a 2002 drama film directed by Roger Avary, based on the novel of the same name by Bret
Easton Ellis. It stars James van der Beek, Shannyn Sossamon, Ian Somerhalder, Jessica Biel, and Kip Pardue.
Plot
Set at the fictional Camden College in New Hampshire, the film opens at the "End of the World" party, where
students Lauren Hynde (Shannyn Sossamon), Paul Denton (Ian Somerhalder), and Sean Bateman (James Van Der
Beek) give apathetic interior monologues on their lives and briefly exchange glances with one another. Lauren,
previously a virgin, takes a film student upstairs to have sex, only to wake up being raped by a townie while the film
student records it; upon waking, she reflects on how she had planned to lose her virginity to Victor (Kip Pardue), her
now ex-boyfriend. Meanwhile, Paul tries to have sex with a jock, only to be bashed when it turns out he is deeply
closeted; additionally, a bruised Sean tears up a purple letter, before approaching and having sex with a blonde girl at
the party.
The Rules of Attraction (film)
258
The plot then moves backwards several months and explores the love triangle between Lauren, Paul and Sean.
Misinterpreting Sean's friendliness, Paul mistakes him for a homosexual and makes several advances that Sean is
apparently oblivious to. Concurrently, Lauren also finds herself attracted to Sean despite saving her virginity for her
traveling boyfriend, Victor. Sean reciprocates her feelings, and assumes the anonymous, purple love letters he has
started receiving are from her.
While Paul is visiting his friend, Dick, Sean is seduced by Lauren's roommate Lara, who tells him that Lauren isn't
interested in him because she has a boyfriend; despite having sex with Lara, however, Sean regrets it and realizes
that he is in love with Lauren. It is then revealed that another, unnamed girl is the author of Sean's love letters; after
seeing him leave the party with Lara, she sends him a suicide note before cutting her wrists in the dorm bathtub.
Lauren, finding Sean with Lara, runs to the girls bathroom in anger, only to find the unnamed girl's corpse, leaving
Lauren extremely distressed. Sean, still believing Lauren wrote the purple letters, misinterprets the suicide note and
assumes Lauren never wants to be with him.
After numerous failed attempts at suicide, Sean then fakes his death and, unaware that Lauren recently found a
corpse, unintentionally upsets her further when she finds him pretending to be dead. After stealing drugs from dealer
Guest (Clifton Collins Jr.), Sean tries to speak to Lauren again, only for her to brush him off angrily. Finally happy
now that Victor has returned to Camden College, Lauren is completely distraught to find Victor has no idea who she
is.
Paul, upon finding a drunk Sean, tries to talk to him, only for Sean to reject him, causing Paul to run off upset. Sean
then finds that the love notes have stopped, and is beaten by Guest. The protagonists then attend the "End of the
World" party and the plot returns to the introduction. After seeing Lauren heading upstairs with the filmmaker, Sean
finally accepts he cannot be with her, and tears up one of the purple letters he believes to be from her. It's then
revealed that, rather than having sex with the blonde girl as he does in the intro, Sean was merely fantasizing, and he
instead leaves his drink and exits. Paul and Lauren then meet on the house porch and reflect on the events of the
movie and on Sean, who is seen leaving on a motorcycle. Sean then begins narrating his thoughts, only for them to
end prematurely.

• Swoosie Kurtz as Mimi Jared, Richard's uptight mother.

Production
The film was shot at the University of Redlands in California.
The film was one of the first studio motion pictures to be edited using Final Cut Pro. Using a beta version of FCP 3,
it demonstrated to the film industry that successful 3:2 pulldown matchback to 24fps could be achieved with an
off-the-shelf product. Roger Avary, the film's director, became a spokesperson for FCP, appearing in print ads
worldwide.
[1][2]
Music
Much of the source music and score is by the duo of Andy Milburn and Tom Hadju, collectively known as
tomandandy. Additional songs that are in the film are from the era in which the book takes place, including the Cure,
Love and Rockets, Blondie, The Go-Go's, Yazoo, and Erasure. The film also includes songs by The Rapture, Milla
Jovovich, Der Wolf, and Serge Gainsbourg.
Releases and versions
Multiple versions of the film exist, as cuts were made so it could receive less restrictive ratings in the U.S. and other
areas.
Lions Gate originally received an NC-17 rating from the MPAA, but director Avary made cuts to the film in order to
achieve an R rating, for "strong sexual content, drug use, language, and violent images".
The Australian version of the film is uncut, retaining 22 seconds that were removed in the R-rated US version.
The French 2-Disc Special Edition entitled Les Lois De L'Attraction is the longest known version available. It
contains a small number of scenes not shown in the US and UK DVDs and also includes more footage of the suicide
scene (including the girl actually cutting into her wrists, instead of just seeing her reaction). It also includes more
content in commentary tracks than the other DVDs available.
The uncut version was shown at UK cinemas. However, the BBFC, under its power as censor under the Video
Recordings Act 1984, shortened the suicide scene, even at the highest (18+) rating.
[3]
Reception
Critical reception
The Rules of Attraction received decidedly mixed reviews—getting 44% "rotten" reviews from Rotten Tomatoes,
[4]
and faring slightly better on Metacritic, getting a score of 50 out of 100 from reviewers, though with an average
score of 7.0/10 from users.
[5]
According to The New York Times, "if The Rules of Attraction,...is a much more
faithful novel-to-screen adaptation than American Psycho, its reverence for its source proves to be its biggest
problem. Where Mary Harron re-invented American Psycho as an elegant comic horror film, Roger Avary, who
wrote and directed The Rules of Attraction, dives headlong into the depravity roiling in the student body of the
fictional Camden College. Where Ms. Harron shrewdly created a surreal, high-styled ambiance for Mr. Ellis's
The Rules of Attraction (film)
260
monstrous humanoids to rattle around in, Mr. Avary wants to convince us that his movie's dissipated symbols of late
capitalist excess really exist. The harder the movie tries to shock, the shriller it rings."
[6]
Richard Corliss
characterized the film as a "frenetically chic look at a daisy chain of collegiate craving...Sex, drugs and rack 'n' ruin;
pretty people doing nasty things to one another...honestly, what more could you want in a movie?".
[7]
Author's reception
Bret Easton Ellis has said, “My favorite movie out of the four was The Rules of Attraction. I thought it was the only
one that captured the sensibility of the novel in a cinematic way. I know I’m sounding like a film critic on that, but
I’m talking about that in an emotional way — as the writer of the novel. I watched that movie and thought they got it
in a way that Mary Harron [director of American Psycho] didn't and Less Than Zero didn't.”
[8]
Box office
The film grossed $11,819,244 worldwide on a budget of $4 million, thus making the film a minor box office
success.
[9]
Awards
At the 14th GLAAD Media Awards, the film was nominated for Best Film - Wide Release by the Gay & Lesbian
Alliance Against Defamation, losing to The Hours.
Cult following
Though the film has inspired mixed critical reaction, it has become something of a cult classic, which was covered
by The A.V. Club for their "New Cult Canon" feature.
[10]
In an April 2009 interview, author Ellis stated that the film
adaptation of The Rules of Attraction came closest of all the movies based on his books to capturing his sensibility
and recreating the world he created in his novels.
[11]
In 2009, the film was shown on Film4 as part of the "Great
Adaptations" series.
Home video release
The DVD was released on February 18, 2003 by Lions Gate Entertainment. The DVD includes trailers and an audio
commentary by Carrot Top, despite having nothing to do with the making of the film, does it because "they couldn't
find anyone else to do it." He often comments on the attractiveness of each actress, begs Eric Stoltz for work every
time he's on screen, and even occasionally sings along with the songs in the film, all the while making a number of
self-deprecating jokes. The DVD also features other commentaries.

The Surreal Life is a reality television series that sets a select group of past-their-prime celebrities and records them
as they live together in Glen Campbell's former mansion
[3]
in the Hollywood Hills for two weeks. The format of the
show resembles that of The Real World and Road Rules, in that the cameras not only record the castmates'
participation in group activities assigned to them, but also their interpersonal relationships and conflicts. The series is
also likened to The Challenge in that previously known individuals from separate origins of entertainment are
brought together into one cast. The show's first two seasons aired on The WB, and subsequent seasons have been
shown on VH1.
The Surreal Life
263
Season 1
The first season (2003) starred Gabrielle Carteris, MC Hammer, Corey Feldman, Emmanuel Lewis, Jerri Manthey,
Mötley Crüe vocalist Vince Neil, and Brande Roderick. Throughout the two-week production, the cast participated
in a Survivor-inspired camping trip, a trip to Las Vegas, and a drama-creating Corey Feldman, who got married to
his girlfriend in the season finale. Mindy Cohn was scheduled to be a cast member, but dropped out before taping
began.
[4][5]
Robin Givens was also offered a slot on the cast, but declined.
[6]
Season 2
The second season aired in early 2004 starred Traci Bingham, Trishelle Cannatella, Erik Estrada, Tammy Faye
Messner, Ron Jeremy, and Vanilla Ice.
[7]
Some memorable moments involved Ron Jeremy's topless porn-star pool
party, Tammy Faye's book signing with members of the gay and transgender community, and a cameo by Gary
Coleman. As the cast works at a local retro diner under Coleman's management, Vanilla Ice sticks a banana down his
own pants, hoists Coleman above the deep-fryer, and insists on having the former child star say his catchphrase,
"What'chu talkin' 'bout, Willis?" in public when Coleman's Strokes co-star Todd Bridges shows up. These acts led
the diminutive sitcom star to "fire" Ice and then quit. The season also introduced "Dirty Laundry", the Surreal Life
talk show hosted by Sally Jessy Raphael. Raphael focused on Cannatella and made several unflattering remarks
about her drinking problem, and in turn, said she was acting like a slut. Other memorable moments included a
surprise stop at the Desert Shadows Inn
[8]
, a nudist resort, from which Tammy Faye fled in tears, and the production
of a children's play. Danny Bonaduce was scheduled to be a cast member but dropped out before taping began.
Season 3
The show's third season began in September 2004 and starred Charo, Dave Coulier, Flavor Flav of Public Enemy,
Jordan Knight, Brigitte Nielsen, and Ryan Starr.
[9]
Memorable moments included Date Night, an agonizing
recording session for the group to produce an original song, and Flavor's insistence that he drive the group's RV
despite not having a license. Flavor also caused a brief disconnection with the cast, when it was revealed during
Dirty Laundry that he had hit the Surreal Life puppy. Throughout the two weeks, Nielsen and Flav began a
relationship which would have a dramatic influence on VH-1's programming over the next five years, as it indirectly
spawned 14 spinoffs and sequels to date. The romance first continued in Strange Love and snowballed from there,
after the success of the Flavor of Love series.
Season 4
The fourth season (2005) starred Da Brat, Adrianne Curry, Christopher Knight, Chyna, Marcus Schenkenberg, Verne
Troyer, and Jane Wiedlin. Among notable moments included conflict between Da Brat and Wiedlin that stemmed
from comments made by Da Brat about Wiedlin that were shown during Dirty Laundry, and the strained relationship
between Laurer and her now-ex-boyfriend Sean Waltman. More memorable moments included Troyer getting drunk
on the first day and urinating
[10]
in the weight room and Wiedlin getting upset about the group being asked to brand
a cow. Like the season prior, another romance-themed spin-off, My Fair Brady was developed around the romantic
escapades of Curry and Knight.
The Surreal Life
264
Season 5
Season five (2005) played up on the show's namesake surreality by having the house decorated with a circus/carnival
theme and the cast was given circus-style taglines during the introduction: Caprice Bourret ("See Britain's Most
Beautiful Woman"), José Canseco ("Face the Fantastic Strongman"), Sandy "Pepa" Denton ("Meet the Mystical
Musician"), Janice Dickinson ("Behold the World's First Supermodel"), Carey Hart ("Witness the Death-Defying
Daredevil"), Omarosa Manigault ("Fear the Ultimate Reality Villain") and Bronson Pinchot ("Marvel at the Man
from Mypos"). This was enhanced with the introduction of a three-legged dog named Lucky. An ongoing feud
between Manigault and Dickinson was a key focus point in the season, which ended with Dickinson leaving the
house during the final dinner.
Season 6
Season six (2006) had a retro motel theme and starred Alexis Arquette, Poison guitarist C. C. DeVille, Steve
Harwell, Sherman Hemsley, Maven Huffman, Tawny Kitaen and Andrea Lowell. Florence Henderson ("Dr. Flo")
assisted the cast as the house therapist. Throughout the two weeks, the cast shot a music video, produced and
broadcast a live news program, booked and hosted their own talk show pilots, and participated in a "battle of the
bands" competition. During the talk show episode, Marla Gibbs makes a cameo appearance with Hemsley, and the
two recreate their retorts and putdowns as Florence and George from The Jeffersons. Arquette brings the transgender
community increased visibility and awareness with her appearance in the series. And, struggling with memory and
enunciation problems that grow worse, Kitaen is inexplicably left crawling on the floor of a closet by the final
episode.
Spin-offs
The Surreal Life is one of VH1's most spun off shows, with a complex web of reality series that have, themselves,
had spin-off shows.
[11]
The first spin-off from The Surreal Life was Strange Love, starring Flavor Flav and Brigitte
Nielsen, both of Season 3. It premiered in January, 2005 and ran for 11 episodes. The second spin-off, My Fair
Brady, starred Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight. It ran its first season in 2005, concluding with the couple's
engagement. The second season debuted in the spring 2006, concluding with a wedding. The third season premiered
on January 20, 2008 and detailed the newlyweds' lives as they prepared to expand their family.
The Surreal Life: Fame Games reunited cast members of the original Surreal Life series in a competition for cash
and prizes.
Pepa received her own two shows stemming from her popularity on VH1. She teamed up with her old partner Cheryl
"Salt" James for The Salt-N-Pepa Show which showcased the two distinct personalities clash on many issues from
their break-up as a group in the 1990s to their current reformation. The series spanned two seasons. In 2010, Pepa
also received her own show on VH1 that documented her search for her Mr. Right entitled "Let's Talk About Pep".
Of Love Series
Strange Love itself had a spin-off show, titled Flavor of Love, which lasted for 3 seasons, ending with Flav's
announcement that he had found his one true love. Due to the show's great success, it spawned a successful
franchise.
Contestant dating shows
Some notable contestants also managed to receive their own dating show. The first was Flavor of Love's Tiffany
Pollard aka New York with I Love New York (2 seasons). Three of her suitors got their own show brothers Kamal
"Chance" and Ahmad "Real" Givens starred in Real Chance of Love (2 seasons), and Frank "The Entertainer"
Maresca starred in Frank the Entertainer... in a Basement Affair.
The Surreal Life
265

of Love Bus, Daisy of Love and Megan Wants a Millionaire were allowed to take part in I Love Money, a Survivor
elimination-style show held in a Mexican mansion. Four seasons were produced but the 3rd one never aired due to

The Surreal Life: Fame Games is a reality television series that was originally broadcast on the VH1 cable network.
A spin-off of the VH1 show, The Surreal Life, the show assembles ten alumni of the show's 6 prior seasons to
compete in a ten-week competition that takes place in Las Vegas, with the winner taking home a prize of $100,000
provided by the online gaming site Golden Palace.net. Robin Leach is the host. The contestants also compete in a
The Surreal Life: Fame Games

game show format elimination round in each episode called "Back to Reality" that sees the losers, in the first 3
weeks of the competition, sent to "the B-List" which consists of living in a less luxurious wing of the mansion than
the rest of the housemates, who are designated as "the A-List". In the later weeks, when the teams are split evenly,
they compete in team competitions where the losing team must send 3 members to play "Back to Reality" to
eliminate one person from the competition entirely.
The show featured a theme song titled "I Wanna Be Famous" recorded by cast member C.C. Deville from his solo
album Samantha 7.

[1]
Nick
Baldasare,
[2]
Donna Frotscher,
[3]
and Christina Veronica.
[4]
The film follows some of the premise covered in the Roger Corman film Humanoids from the Deep – sea creatures
coming to shore and attacking and mating with humans, but also contains the idea of a film-within-a-film device. A
film crew (Nick Baldasare plays the director Mel Duncan) are on location making a film Invasion of the Fishfuckers
– which happens to be a story about sea creatures coming ashore and attacking and mating with humans. Ron Jeremy
is part of this film crew. It is notable that this is one of his few non-porn roles. Whilst they are making the film
coincentally the very thing they're filming seems to be happening around them. Thus, there's a blurring between
reality and fiction.
Production
Filming took place in New Hampshire,[Pensacola] USA.
Reaction
They Bite has yet to be released on DVD.

Tromeo and Juliet is a 1996 independent transgressive comedy film adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo &
Juliet from Troma Entertainment. The film was directed by Lloyd Kaufman from a screenplay by Kaufman and
James Gunn, who also served as associate director.
[1]
The film is more or less a faithful adaptation of the play except with the addition of extreme amounts of
Troma-esque sexuality and violence, as well as a revised ending. The title of the film is a portmanteau of "Troma"
and "Romeo & Juliet".
Tromeo and Juliet
279
Plot
Set in modern-day Manhattan, the film begins with the narrator (Lemmy of Motörhead) introducing two families: the
Capulets and the Ques.
At the center of these families are Tromeo Que and Juliet Capulet. Tromeo lives in squalor with his alcoholic father
Monty and works at a tattoo parlor with his cousin Benny and friend Murray. Juliet is sequestered in her family’s
mansion, watched over by her abusive father Cappy, passive mother Ingrid, and overprotective cousin Tyrone, all the
while being sexually satisfied by family servant Ness (Debbie Rochon).
Both Tromeo and Juliet are trapped in cases of unrequited love: Tromeo lusts for the big-bosomed, promiscuous
Rosie; Juliet is engaged to wealthy meat tycoon London Arbuckle as prelude to an arranged marriage.
In the meantime, a bloody brawl between Murray and Sammy Capulet catches the attention of Detective Ernie
Scalus, who gathers the heads of the two families together and declares that they will be held personally accountable
for any further breaches of peace. Almost immediately afterwards, Monty and Cappy start threatening each other
with weapons. Sammy gets caught in the window of Monty’s speeding car, where he is thrown head-first into a fire
hydrant and (very slowly) dies.
On the insistence of Murray and Benny, Tromeo attends the Capulets' masquerade ball in the hopes of meeting
Rosie, only to find another man performing cunnilingus on her. Tromeo staggers around the party in disillusion until
he locks eyes with those of Juliet. The two instantly fall for each other and share a dance until an angry Tyrone
chases him out of the house.
Tromeo and Juliet continue to be enamored by one another from afar. Cappy, disgusted at his daughter’s active
libido, forcefully imprisons her in a plastic cage as punishment. Tromeo sneaks into the house of Capulet and the two
meet once again. After proclaiming their love for each other both verbally and physically, they agree to be married.
Juliet breaks her engagement with Arbuckle and, with the help of Father Lawrence, the two are married in secrecy
the next day.
Tyrone, upon discovering Juliet‘s secret affair, gathers his gang together and challenges Tromeo to a duel. Now a
kinsman to the Capulets, Tromeo refuses to fight, suggesting to both sides to bring the lifelong feud to an end.
Murray accepts the duel on Tromeo’s behalf and, in the ensuing brawl, is mortally wounded by Tyrone‘s club.
Tromeo, enraged by his friend’s death, pursues Tyrone and slays him (through a series of car crashes which
dismembers him) and goes into hiding from the police.
Learning that she is involved with Tromeo, Cappy savagely beats Juliet and forces her to reconcile with Arbuckle.
Arbuckle accepts her re-proposal and the marriage is set. Juliet visits Father Lawrence, who reunites her with
Tromeo and enlists the help of Fu Chang, the apothecary, who sells Juliet a special potion which will aide her
predicament.
On the day of her wedding, Juliet swallows the apothecary’s potion, transforming her into a hideous cow monster,
complete with a three-foot penis. The mere sight of her causes Arbuckle to leap out of Juliet’s window in fright,
committing suicide. Enraged over the loss of his would-be son-in-law and meat inheritance, Cappy attempts to rape
and murder Juliet, but Tromeo arrives just in time, knocking Cappy unconscious and bringing Juliet’s appearance
back to normal by a single kiss. Cappy awakens, taking both lovers captive by crossbow-point. While he is
distracted, Juliet performs one last act of defiance against her father and electrocutes him.
As Tromeo and Juliet leave the house of Capulet, they are confronted by Ingrid and Monty, who reveal to them the
real reason behind the Capulet/Que feud: Long ago, Cappy and Monty were the owners of the successful Silky Films
production company. Ingrid, married to Monty at time, struck up an affair with Cappy, eventually birthing a son
which Monty raised as his own. Faced with a divorce from Ingrid and the threat of having his son taken away from
him, Monty was forced to sign over all the rights of Silky Films to the Capulets in exchange for his son. After the
initial shock at the revelation that they are siblings, Tromeo and Juliet are determined not to let their whole ordeal be
for naught; they passionately embrace and drive off into the sunset.

The film picks up six years later in Tromaville, New Jersey, where Tromeo and Juliet, now married, have become
suburban yuppies with a house and (deformed) children of their own.
The film ends with the narrator’s brief poem for the lovers: "And all of our hearts free to let all things base go/As
taught by Juliet and her Tromeo". A brief shot of William Shakespeare laughing uproariously is shown before the
end credits.

Production
The first draft of Tromeo and Juliet surfaced in 1992, written by Kaufman and Troma employees Andy Deemer and
Phil Rivo, written entirely in Shakespearean verse and supposedly featuring The Toxic Avenger as a side character.
The feedback from other Troma employees and Michael Herz was unanimously negative, so the idea was scrapped.
In 1995, another shot was taken at the concept, this time by newbie screenwriter James Gunn. Gunn completely
rewrote the script, again in Shakespearean verse, making it darker and far more obscene; the original version had
Juliet as a stripper and Tromeo as a crack dealer. Another revision, with additional material by Kaufman, was crafted
into what the film eventually became: the verse was trimmed down and more comical elements were added.
Tromeo and Juliet was shot in the summer of 1995 for $350,000, one of the least expensive films in Troma history.

Reception
Tromeo and Juliet opened to generally positive reviews. Among the most notable, The New York Times called the
film "exhilarating", Variety Magazine described it as a "no-holds Bard" and USA Today noted the film was "not just
for Troma junkies...Tromeo and Juliet is sexy, silly, sweet and surreal!". Tromeo also played in art house theatres in
Los Angeles and New York for months, and reportedly played at a San Francisco theatre for over a year.
In addition, Tromeo was selected to play at the Cannes Film Festival, the Fantasporto festival, the Mar del Plata Film
Festival and the Italian Fantafestival, where it won the award for Best Film of 1997.
Daniel Rosenthal describes Tromeo and Juliet as "the nadir of screen Shakespeare...[it] takes every major character
and incident from Romeo and Juliet and systematically drains them of humanity in a tedious, appallingly acted feast
of mutilation and softcore sex."
[2]
Tony Howard summarizes it as a film "in which Juliet and the Nurse have lesbian
sex, Romeo masturbates, various body parts are removed, the feud is between rival porn czars and incest rules".
[3]
After the success of Tromeo, Troma had plans to develop a spiritual sequel entitled Schlock and Schlockability (a
play on Sense and Sensibility), in which Jane Austen is reincarnated as a well-endowed female who takes revenge on
all of the Hollywood movie producers who have bastardized her novels. At one point, Troma announced that the film
would head into production, but as of 2008, there are no plans to follow up on the film.

Label Oglio Records
Tromeo and Juliet is also notable for its soundtrack, composed of alternative rock, pop punk and heavy metal music,
which helped get the film some recognition on MTV. Most bands were willing to contribute their tracks for little to
no money out of respect for Troma. In return for their song "Mr. Superlove", The Ass Ponys' lead singer requested
only a check from the company for $9.95, for the purpose of framing it on his wall.
The CD soundtrack was released on Oglio Records on May 6, 1997 and included the following tracks:
1. "Tromeo and Juliet Theme" by Willie Wisely
2. "Sacrifice" by Motörhead

Type Religious Charity
Founded January 1, 2002
Headquarters Pasadena, CA
Motto Jesus Loves Porn Stars
XXXchurch.com is a non-profit Christian website that aims to help those who struggle with pornography. Its targets
are consumers and those in the adult entertainment industry. The organization describes itself as "the #1 Christian
porn site designed to bring awareness, openness and accountability to those affected by pornography."
Organizational history
The organization launched in January 2002 when the founders, Mike Foster and Craig Gross, set up a booth inside
the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas to promote the website as an alternative to porn, and it continues
to attend porn conventions worldwide.
[1]
The group has given out thousands of Bibles with "Jesus Loves Porn Stars"
on the cover at these conventions, a facet of their ministry which has been featured in American national media.
[2][3]
In 2005, the independent film Missionary Positions was released, which documented the origins of XXXchurch. The
film was produced and directed by documentary film maker, Bill Day.
[4][5]
The film documents Mike Foster's
departure from XXXchurch in 2004.
The organization has received support from prominent Christian pastors such as Bill Hybels,
[6]
Craig Groeschel and
Rick Warren.
[7]
Craig Gross is also a published author, having written Questions You Can't Ask Your Mama About Sex, The Gutter,
Dirty Little Secret, Pure Eyes, Eyes Of Integrity, Jesus Loves You This I Know, and Starving Jesus.

The founder of XXXchurch.com, Craig Gross, regularly debates porn star Ron Jeremy in an event called "The Porn
Debate"
[10]
on college campuses across the United States. In 2008, the debate was featured on ABC News' Nightline
both on air and online, with the segment becoming the most watched in Nightline's online viewing history.
[11]
X3watch software
XXXchurch.com produces accountability software (specialized Web-surfing monitoring software) called X3watch.
The software maintains a log of questionable websites that a user accesses based on content type, and then sends a
report to an "accountability partner" of the person's choosing. Such software can be useful for anyone who would
like to quit a pornography habit.
The software is available for Windows and Macintosh computers. There is a free version, which is free to download
and use.
[12]
There is also a premium version, which includes filtering, accountability-reporting, technical support and

Malone University Radio,
[17]

of Zombiegeddon, many other low-budget horror flicks have followed suit and cast large ensembles of horror icons,
many of them employing the same actors.
