Kate Upton doesn't get enough credit

Routinely lauded for her wamdigousness, Kate rarely gets the proper accolades for her very impressive white girl booty:

And I'm not saying they went overboard with the photoshop on these pics, but Kate's mole seems to be missing in a couple of these:

David Price proves once again that he is a thug

Price comes into last night's game having hit only two batters this season and with one of the lowest walk rates in the league . . . and promptly hits David Ortiz in the back with his first pitch claiming he was simply trying to establish the inside of the plate.


Only thing more absurd than that is that Price didn't get run since the teams just had a chippy game last week and the umps knew about it. Price didn't get run after he drilled Mike Carp in the arm either with the umpires claiming once again that they were sure there was no intent.

Oh brother.

Best revenge is that Boston won 3-2 for it's fifth straight win after losing 10 straight and pushed the Rays deeper into the cellar. I'm sure the paper today will be full of cya for the thuggish Price and his enabler Joe Maddon.

Price doubled down in interviews after the game, mocking and belittling Ortiz, trying to twist Papi's words to make it sound as though he was making a statement comparing baseball to war ala young Winslow a few years ago.


Price went on to say that Ortiz thinks he's bigger than the game. I have no idea where that comes from. Price is still stinging after the Sox pummeled him last season, with Papi hitting two home runs in the game. And the churlish Price thought Ortiz took too long watching one of the shots.   jeepers

It's important to remember that this is the same petulant pitcher who was accusing umpires of racist comments and was so unhinged that the Rays had to put him on IR with a mystery "triceps" injury, to calm him the f*ck down.

Also important to note is that the local sports writers who work overtime to find Boston bashing stories to keep the fires of this trumped up rivalry going, haven't said one word in Price's defense. They know he's guilty of deliberately hitting Ortiz and Carp, and despite their shameless "homerism" haven't done a thing to try and pin some sort of blame on the Sox.

Boston got the best revenge by beating the Rays thoroughly in the series, winning the next two games 7-1 and 4-0. With the Rays buried in the cellar, expect Tampa to deal the surly Price to some team on the West Coast for prospects and maybe a reliable bat.

I, for one, certainly won't miss this punk.

Late night hotness

I haven't done one of these in a while, so here's a look back at one of the sexiest voices in television -- Suzanne Pleshette:

Leonard Pitts is running out of words

Or so he says in a recent editorial. Funny, he always seems to have plenty to say when exploiting a tragedy to further his political agenda.

And there should be plenty of words left over from the one-sided diatribes he pours out regularly. I don't expect editorial writers to have balance, they are by definition, there to promote their employers policies and politics. But I suppose one can hope.

There certainly are plenty of words left to go around about the recent shootings in Isla Vista. Pitts didn't have any problem finding words to lay the blame for this as the feet of the NRA. And he didn't have any problem finding the words to bleat out provable falsehoods like " a statistical matter, a gun in the home is far more likely to hurt someone you love than to scare off a burglar"

The American Journal of Criminal Law states that you are far more likely to survive violent assault if you defend yourself with a firearm. And there's this from a national crime survey:

I can find the words to point out that a person is five times more likely to drown in their own pool or 17 times more likely to accidentally poison themselves than be injured with their own firearm. The data goes on and on. But apparently Pitts can't find the words to point this stuff out to his readers.

Michael Bloomberg's (and he's no fan of the Second Amendment) BusinessWeek magazine even pointed out that the Isla Vista shooter passed three separate background checks when buying his weapons. They stated that the only way to prevent such a determined nutbag as Eliot Rodger would be completely outlawing private ownership of firearms and forced confiscation of weapons currently legally owned. Sensible existing laws simply cannot stop someone from committing a crime, any crime. Pitts was right here at least -- he didn't have the words to put his actual gun grabbing agenda in the paper.

And true, he didn't have the words to point out that the cities with the strictest gun control laws have the highest violent crime rates. Nor was he able to find the words to mention that 60 - 70% of gunshot victims are repeat criminal offenders. Or that 90% of all violent crime in this country does not involve firearms at all and studies show that criminals overwhelmingly state that they avoid committing crimes when they suspect that their potential victim might be armed.

Sadly, I don't think Pitts is running out of words at all. He'll be ready to go when the next tragedy occurs, exploiting it to demonize his political opponents and gin up outrage among his ill informed readers.

As protests go . . .

. . . this beats the heck out of that "Occupy" horsesh*t:

scout willis topless in ny

Apparently Scout Willis, the less lantern-jawed offspring of Bruce Willis, decided she was tired of the hypocritical censoring of her occasional exposed girly bits on Instagram, so she took to the streets of Manhattan topless (because it's okay to stroll around topless in NYC . . . who knew?) and posted the images to her Instagram account:

Clever girl. As protests go, I think I can get behind this one  :-)

Aussie actress Caitlin Stasey has added her two cents to Scout's Free the Nipple campaign:

This could get interesting  :-)

Scout's sister Rumer attended some function in support of her little sister's Free the Nipple campaign wearing a booby t-shirt. Personally, I like it when she's supporting it for reals:

Anna Faris in a bikini = could be better

Photographers caught a favorite cutie of mine at the beach over the holiday weekend:

I'm sort of a less is more kind of guy when it comes to bikinis. Anna is cute as a button, a wonderful comedic actress and has an underrated, bangin' body. These are nice, but I wouldn't complain if she'd been rockin' the hotness a bit more.

And just to show that she can do it, here she is killin' it in a very sexy bikini:

Happy Memorial Day!

Take time out today to remember and honor the men and women who gave their lives to protect us and our country.

In my defense

I don't get a lot of comments on this blog, so it allows me to respond to the few I get each time. I did a post last year about Lana del Rey's look for a video she was shooting. I didn't think it was particularly mean spirited on my part, but a couple of commenters took me to task assuming I prefer women to be dieted down to skin and bones.

Clearly they haven't seen my proliferation of Daily Duffster posts. Anyone who has seen those and thinks I prefer scrawny chicks is definitely reading comprehension impaired. But just to make my point, here's a couple of my favorite hot ladies from the good old days that no one would accuse of being skin and bones:

Dinesh D'Souza is an idiot

From Reuters:

The conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza pleaded guilty on Tuesday to a campaign finance law violation, averting a trial that had been expected to begin the same day in Manhattan federal court.
D'Souza, known for his biting criticism of President Barack Obama, pleaded guilty to one criminal count of making illegal contributions in the names of others. A second count concerning the making of false statements is expected to be dismissed once he is sentenced.
The plea came four months after Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara charged D'Souza with using "straw donors" to give funds in 2012 to Republican Wendy Long's U.S. Senate campaign in New York. Long, who met D'Souza while they were students in the 1980s, lost to Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand.
"I knew that causing a campaign contribution to be made in the name of another was wrong and something the law forbids," D'Souza, 53, told U.S. District Judge Berman on Tuesday. "I deeply regret my conduct."

D'Souza has done some remarkable work with his documentaries, books, and such, and now, because of this jaw dropping bit of stupidity, everything he has done and may do in the future is tainted.

Whether it is fair or not, conservatives are held to a completely different standard than liberals because of the overwhelming liberal bent of the media. D'Souza's work would never have swayed die-hard liberal voters, but what Republicans are trying to do is reach independent and free thinking Democrats with our ideas and messages about the outlaw nature of the current administration. Now every story in the media about D'Souza will have the words convicted criminal prominently featured in the article.

Nice work there, dumbass.

Rule 5 Sunday -- Girls Behaving Badly - part 2

apartment wrestling

Haven't done a Rule 5 in a while, so here's a reprise of an earlier posting -- Girls (or perhaps their photographers) Behaving Badly:

Rule 5 Sunday suggested by this.

So, what do I think of the AOS season finale?

Glad you asked  :-)

I was concerned the way the show was going that we were going to get a whole bunch of dire circumstance (i.e. Fitz & Gemma at the bottom of the ocean) cliffhangers at season's end. Fortunately, the writers kept that sort of thing in check. The most welcome bit was that they are allowing Coulson to reboot S.H.I.E.L.D., which seems sort of important since the show is about "Agents" of S.H.I.E.L.D. and what's the point of that if there's no S.H.I.E.L.D.? You know?

They seem to have written Ward's character out of the show. I'm not quite understanding why they spent an entire season developing that character only to have him turn out to be a douche who's dispatched at season's end. From a practical standpoint, I get that this allows the much more commercially desirable interracial romance between Gemma and Agent Triplett. Though in the finale we finally had Fitz telling (without actually saying the words) Gemma that he loved her. This could set up a fun good natured rivalry between Fitz and Trip as they play for Gemma's affections with the geek vs. jock type of stuff, with both knowing that Gemma loves Fitz first.

I had commented earlier in the season that with all the talk about Agent May being such a lethal killer type, that her fight scenes were pretty bland. I guess either they upped the budget on the fight choreography or Ming Na Wen just took a while to get up to speed on fighting because the finale had a really good fight between her and Ward. Lots of crashing through walls, brutal hits, power tools, etc. The nail gun trick at the end was nice too.

So what was Ward? Simply a sociopath? I don't know. He's a cold blooded killer to be sure. And even though he didn't directly try to kill Fitz and Gemma he wasn't worried about leaving them to die. Which we saw in the flash back with the dog -- he wouldn't kill it, but didn't have a problem leaving it alone in the woods to die. His devotion to Agent Garrett was understandable given the backstory, but what did he think was Garrett's endgame? I was worried for a while that they were going to play Ward as some sort of triple agent, but that seems unlikely now. I guess his character was necessary to the overall story arc, but just dumping a major character after one season? He's not exactly a big in demand movie actor, after all. Oh well.

I've seen a lot of blog geeks groaning about the glacial pace of Skye's development. And I guess they have a point. As a focal point for the series, the writers have been aggravatingly slow in fleshing her out. We find out in the finale that she's the daughter of two "monsters" but it's unclear whether that was a literal or figurative description of them. A closing shot of Flowers telling a partially hidden person that she's found his daughter showed the "father's" hand dripping in blood. Those more knowledgeable about the Marvel Universe than I have pondered whether her parents might be Inhumans. I don't remember much about the Inhumans, but I don't recall them being blood thirsty butcher types. I could be wrong there. But that would be a nice tie-in to the blue alien that gave both Coulson and Skye their lives back via the mysterious GH325 transfusion. My first thought when seeing the blue guy was Kree, since we saw what I assumed was a Skrull in the Avengers movie, and the writers do seem to be trying to keep all the movies and the show tied together. In any event, we're still waiting to see what hidden powers Skye has that has made her so desired by both S.H.I.E.L.D. and the bad guys.

Nice cameo by Samuel L. in the finale. Technically longer than a cameo, but still nice. His patter with Coulson was delightful and makes me wish Coulson had someone like that on a weekly basis to interact with. I could have done without Patton Oswalt's character coming back. He's apparently a clone or L.M.D. (life model decoy as referenced in the second IronMan movie), but whatever . . . color me unimpressed.

Oh yeah, I loved how Cybertek's control center for the supersoldiers was simply a cube farm full of office drone types that were forced to work for them via a "benefits package" that was apparently a loved one held hostage. And nice job with the multiple false endings -- Garrett's dead . . . nope, he's alive . . . nope, dead . . . clever use of broadcast television's programmed breaks to string out a sequence.

Fitz may be brain damaged, I'm suspecting Flowers has more of the GH325 (she knew Garrett wanted it selfishly, so why not make more and then lie to him about it?), Deathlock is wandering around doing solo hero work, and Coulson's drawing some sort of intricate otherworldly electronics schematic on a wall . . .

All in all, I thought the season ended well. The finale was enjoyable to watch. And I'll be waiting for next season to begin. Mission accomplished on their part.

And just to end the season on a high note, here's some sexy pics of Chloe Bennett from Esquire Magazine:

So, what do I think of Penny Dreadful?

Glad you asked  :-)

For starters, I can say that the cinematography, set design, costuming and casting is all excellent. The show looks fabulous. I found the opening credit sequence to be less than amazing, but perhaps I've been spoiled by Game of Thrones' inventive title sequence.

The first episode left me a tad underwhelmed as I found a lot of it to feel derivative. That should be expected, I suppose, when you're doing a mash-up of all these 1800's era horror characters. Still, I couldn't help but feel a little League of Extraordinary Gentlemen vibe as Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) assembled his little team. Especially with the addition of six-gun toting Ethan Chandler, played by Josh Hartnett.

The premise is fairly simple -- Sir Malcolm's daughter has been taken by . . . something, and he's trying to get her back. And he needs a team of singular individuals to help him track her down. Mystery and paranormal weirdness ensue.

Part of Sir Malcolm's team is the mysterious Vanessa Ives, played with sultry smokiness by Eva Green. Ives' takedown of Chandler in one scene was so eerily similar to Vesper Lynd's deconstruction of James Bond in Casino Royale that I half expected Chandler to say that he felt skewered afterward.

We're introduced to a young Victor Frankenstein in the premiere as well. The young doctor has arrogance to spare and enough of a god complex that he can stand toe to toe with the formidible Sir Malcolm. I was a bit disappointed that Frankenstein's creation was given life in the first episode, thinking that it left little to work with as the series went on. But after watching the second episode (available on Showtime on Demand in SD only), I see I didn't give the writers nearly enough credit.

In the second episode, we learn much more about all the characters. So much, in fact, that it will take several viewings for this old guy to take it all in. Hartnett's Chandler is hiding out in Europe because of some serious problems with the law back home in the States. Sir Malcolm apparently took either one of his children or his wife on an expedition up a mountain and lost her (perhaps due to his single-mindedness of achieving a goal at all costs). Ms. Ives, besides being quite psychic, is also being hunted by something. Perhaps "the" vampire. Which may explain why she can stop a charging vampire in its tracks. And we learn that Dr. Frankenstein's creation in episode one isn't the first thing he's brought to life. Hmmmm . . .

And speaking of vampires -- these certainly aren't Bram Stoker's vampires. They seem to be created by some sort of Egyptian mythology instead, something about a conjoining of the Gods Amun-Ra and Amunet. And you can apparently kill them with simple bullets or sword thrusts. So we're going down a different road altogether with the vampires.

There's also former Rule 5 girl Billie Piper as an unfortunate that both Chandler and Dorian Grey (almost forgot to mention that he's here as well) spend some time with. I wasn't sure what they would do with Grey, but his introduction has him exuding some lurid goodness. An immortal, he's unafraid to take dangerous risks. As he says at one point -- "I never say no."

I can't see where they're going with Piper's character, if she'll be a continuing one. Biggest problem I have is that I can't understand half of what she says. She's got a hard-edged twangy, perhaps Cockney, accent and combined with the typical sort of fast mumbling style of Brit-speak, I'm shaking my head and cranking up the volume trying to make out her dialogue.

Since they're doing all this 1800's era characters, I'm wondering if we'll get a little Sherlock Holmes at some point. Maybe not a recurring character, perhaps just a little drive by action. The Holmes short stories had a scary edge to them. And if you're going to call your show "Penny Dreadful" you might want to add in one of the most famous of those.

So check it out if you're looking for something a little bit gothic. This might just turn out to be pretty cool.

Random internet blogger?

I had that hurled at me today as a pejorative in a comment over a post I put up about a year ago.

Back in June of last year, I lashed out at the New Yorker magazine over their cover that perverted iconic Sesame Street characters Bert & Ernie in the magazine's celebration of the SCOTUS striking down the DOMA (don't you just love all these acronyms?)

Well it took this commentor until now to find my post and he submitted two really lengthy comments dripping with sarcasm and chock full of left wing/MSNBC talking points.

Rather than just tell the guy to "f*ck off" I decided to do a detailed response in the body of the post to explain my thoughts and answer as much of his misguided pronouncements as possible. Yeah. That went about as well as you might expect. I finally got a response today that was, in short form -- "you're wrong about everything because . . . shut up . . . you're stupid!"

Well now he claims he's leaving my blog never to return *sheds single tear* . . . guess I'll just have to keep my chin up and soldier on.

And to help me through my grief . . . here's some random internet busty hotness:
