Daisy MarieThe “C” Word

by Nobody Special

Back when I was a kid — this being slightly after electricity, but well before everybody carried around lithium batteries in their pockets — there was … drum roll pleasethe “F” WORD. And people certainly did not say this word. Ever. And if you were a person still living at home, you probably could not even scream in frustration, “Oh! F-WORD!!” … Because even if you were technically not violating any rules, per se, your mother might know what you meant, and back when I was a kid, mothers definitely did not have a sense of humor about some things. And if your dad happened to laugh when you made this well thought out — and daringly clever, no doubt — “curse” of yours, well, both you and your dad might have to hightail it out of there and go visit Dairy Queen while things cooled off at home. … Y’know, theoretically.

As with most things it seems, then life got complicated.

Assess Asses as Assimilating

Young Ginger LynnCalling All Asses #2

by Nobody Special

Some words in the English language are just funny. We actually had a rather good time when we set about trying to “assess” a movie about “asses” quite honestly. You have to be really careful when writing up the copy, or it can be a real pain in the “S” as you can likely imagine.

TARA: Frankly, We DO Give a Damn

The Animal Rescue AllianceGet Behind Pet Adoptions (as it were)

by Ben Evolent

Many people know that the creative mind behind Penthouse, Kelly Holland, also spends beaucoup amounts of money and time running an animal rescue operation in the San Fernando Valley called TARA. While Kelly no longer owns Penthouse, she does still serve as the CEO, and thus we wanted to highlight her altruistic endeavors by considering a few Pet adoptions of our own. We do this because we still love Kelly, obviously, but also given how things turned out, we still have confidence in the evolution of the Penthouse Brand. [Rumor has it that we may not be quite as altruistic as Kelly, although we have no idea how people might get that impression.]

Screen Play to a Head Trip

Screen Play Back CoverPost Script to the Head Trip Post (Script)

by Nobody Special

[These illustrations will make more sense as we continue here, but basically they come from a sadly little-known — and quite expensive, even by today’s standards — movie named Screen Play.]

Head Trip was a long time ago, not so much in years but in “movie sets” time. For awhile there I was on at least three or four sets a week, and this lasted for more than ten years. Over the last few years it has slowed down a lot, and now if we do that many a month it qualifies as a busy period away from the computers. Still, those memorable times in life tend to stick with us, and the Head Trip director, Justin Sterling definitely fills a few of those.
