Live Nude Girls
The list of celebrities who had their pictures stolen numbers over seventy-five. Some of them aren’t even capitalized; not names, really. They’re just folders where the prizes go. Jennifer Lawrence is on the list. Perez Hilton posted those, for those who might otherwise have had trouble finding them fast enough. The question went out quick on its heels: Is her career over?…
TV Movies and Other Accidental Horrors

To round off this mess in the spirit of it all, tomorrow I’ll be seeing Breaking Dawn 2: Stuff That Didn’t Fit into The First Part, and Also Jacob Staring at a Toddler He’s Gonna Marry. Mike’s face is my face, about all of this.…
