What Sucks…Whorish Halloween Costumes For Kids: Perv Watch V.27

Lookit, I have long been a proponent for women’s Halloween costumes which present the simple concept of dressing like an indian, nurse, police officer (gotcha) or cowgirl and combine it with looking like an slutty, slutty whore. It’s good for men, it’s good for America.

But the key word in the above sentence is “woman”.

This year, what can only be described as an “ass-load” of Halloween costume companies seems to be trying to A) turn your “tween” daughter into a whore and B) get this guy, in trouble. (I’m kidding, that’s Eddie Pepitone, a gifted comic actor living in LA, buy his CD here so he doesn’t get mad at me for using his picture.)

So, WTF, Halloween costume making companies, are you staffed entirely with pervs? People want to trick or treat in their neighborhoods, not the seedy-side of a town in Thailand! Look at some of these costumes!

A Geisha girl? Are you shitting me? Great. Halloween costumes for peds with Asian fetishes!

Here’ s the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion from “The Wizard of Oz”, apparently the remake directed by Larry Clark!

Yo, ho, ho- in a big friggin' way. Yeah, send your daughter out in this, next year she’ll be going as a rape victim!

What Sucks Bonus…Sexy Ghostbusters

Once again, I’m all for whoring it out this time of year for adults, but come on- sexy Ghostbuster?

WTF? This wasn’t even in the movie? I’m all for whoring it up on Halloween but come on- have we really exhausted every single possibility that you now need to start making up, potential whory costumes? Did I miss “sexy accountant” and “sexy repo-girl”?

What Sucks…Roman Polanski!

Roman Polanski headed for extradition!

This is good news for many reasons, not the least of which is that Hollywood gets a chance to get this story right. And yes, I realized that normally you shouldn’t need a Mulligan when it comes to supporting a guy who raped 13 year old, but we have one so, let’s make the best of it.

Here’s a couple of tips on how not to make the same mistakes you made last time, Hollywood.

1) Do NOT circulate petitions saying he should be released! Don’t do it. And if you see a petition for it, don’t sign. The public isn’t going to understand anyone signing that thing other than R. Kelly! And they shouldn’t its just not cool!

2) If someone asks you why you think he should be released, saying “he’s a good director” is not a good enough reason!

Look, I love Star Wars, but that doesn’t mean George Lucas gets to have his way with Miley Cyrus. Even though you know he would. Look at that guy- he’d like nothing better than to get his excess neck-skin in a room with her! I digress.

3) Do not try and downplay what Polanski did by saying it wasn’t “Rape-rape”. I shouldn’t even have to say this. By the way, rapes other than “Rape-rapes” are still bad. Hollywood is still having a hard time with this- someone quoted noted old gay dude Gore Vidal the other day calling the woman Polanski raped a “hooker” the other day.


Why is this so hard for people to understand? It’s NOT Chinatown!?! Which leads me too...

What Sucks Bonus...The End of Chinatown

Ahem, spoiler alert, 35 years later.

Why doesn’t this movie get more shit for its ending? Yes, I understand it’s a great film in respect to the whole noir thing and it looks pretty amazing and the story is pretty damn good and Nicholson is excellent and overall it is a classic, no problem there.

But the ending, more specifically the last line- come on.

“Forget it Jake, it’s Chinatown.”

Forget it? How fucked up was Chinatown in that era? A woman was just shot in full view of 40 people by a cop who no one denies is basically an employee of the man who raped her 17 years earlier! Oh yeah and that rapist guy? He’s also her dad AND the father of her child. Oh and he also basically had her husband killed and “Forget it Jake, it’s Chinatown.” is what the guy says?

Oh yeah, it’s Chinatown, my bad. I forgot. I’ll go get a “unicorn burger” and hang out with the two-headed Elvis at the all night strip club/ slaughterhouse down the block. Oh hey, can I borrow a centaur tooth, I’m out of them and apparently that’s the currency here cause we’re in Chinatown.

At least the Wire has Omar killed in the final year.

What Sucks…The David Spade Tommy Boy Direct TV Ad

Sorry to join the chorus of voices on the net disgusted by this ad a little late, but what’s that old phrase? Better late than never except when showing up to a Sandra Bullock film.

I can’t see how doing this ad could be cool with David Spade. First off, he’s a pretty successful comic. If he spent all his SNL money, and his Joe Dirt money and his Tommy Boy, Black Sheep, Just Shoot Me, Showbiz Show, Rules of Engagement money, he should still have the money from those Capitol One commercials, shouldn’t he?

And hey direct TV, why don’t you do one of your ads with someone who isn’t dead? Last year you did Poltergeist, now this? There are a zillion movies out there- chose one with live actors!

What Sucks…Vultures

Behold, the bird’s entry into the “World’s Shittiest Animal Sweepstakes”- the vulture.

Vultures look like this, eat rotting flesh and defend themselves by projectile vomiting at their enemies. Throw in the fact that that they can fly, can grow to have wing spans of close to 6 feet, and grunt and hiss like giant snakes when they feel threatened, and you have an animal fashioned from the nightmares of Edgar Allen Poe, as directed by Tim Burton, in a very bad mood.

Toss in the popular notion that you only see these things when you’re alone, near death, somehow stuck walking alone through a dessert, and we’re pretty much talking about the opposite of a butterfly here.

Consider these vulture fun facts: (Spoiler alert- they are not fun).

- a vulture can eat a diseased corpse of an animal, and through its digestive system, the disease will be rendered neutral, that is to say, the vulture’s poop will be clean. Which is nice.

- the vomit of a vulture has more acidic content than acid rain, and if its incredible stench doesn’t scare away its predator, the vomit contacting the skin will actually burn it.

- vultures urinate on themselves as a method of cooling their skin and destroying bacteria that may have gotten on them while feeding on a dying, diseased animal. Sure, they could be more careful about eating, but then they wouldn't have the need to pee on themselves.

- a vulture will often begin eating an animal corpse at its anus or at its eyes. Why? Because in most cases, that is where the dead animal is most vulnerable. So, ah, take that, other animals who think they’re creepy- I’m talking to YOU- eels, tapeworms and ticks.

- vultures can smell a dead mouse under leaves at 200 feet in the sky. To put that in perspective, consider that if milk smells bad, you know immediately to not put it in your coffee- the vulture would be all like “ah, no, it’s the other way around.”

So, nice job on the vulture, God, seriously give yourself a pat on the back.

Musical Theater Majors Are Doing Their Part...

These nerds from glee club have the grapes to go in and cause what passes as a ruckus for them, so we can get out from underneath the grips of a corrupt industry, who as a practice, refuse to pay for people’s medical treatment all the time.

These pigs, (the insurance lobbyists, not the cast of your high school’s production of “Carousel”) react with dismissal and laughter, and why shouldn’t they? After all, they’ve spent an unprecedented amount of money to buy your politicians, and then have them routinely dismiss the need for a public option, even after a large majority of the people- both democrats and republicans- favor reform, while themselves subscribing to a publicly funded, free form of health coverage for their loved ones.

You must be thinking- what balls. If you are, you’re probably thinking like the musical theater geeks above right before they were moved to action. Sadly, their “action”, is writing a musical parody of Annie, dressing up as lobbyists and singing it one by one after they’ve infiltrated this douchebag seminar.

But imagine they had another way of expressing themselves? Imagine could express their outrage, in a way other than a song parody of a long-running Broadway show. Imagine if step two of their plan did not NOT involve rhyming the word “deductible” and inserting it into a song from the score of Jesus Christ Superstar.

If you can imagine that, then you’re half way to doing YOUR version of what these nerds did. Are you a baker? Design a cake that has written on it the words “Insurance Companies Suck”. Are you a tattoo artist? Draw “F Aetna” on someone’s arm. Are you a hooker? Then don’t have take anyone in the health insurance industry as a client, or better yet, charge them double or give them the clap.

These douchetards, (health insurance lobbyists and the walking human failures that are our politicians) should see reminders of their actions everywhere they look, at all times.

These nerds stood up and I never was so proud to have been in Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat as a Junior in High School in my life (I did it for the chicks, I swear.)

What are YOU willing to do?

What Sucks…Quick Hits: Lil’ Wayne, Jon Gosselin, Ashlee Simpson, Driving A La-Z-Boy While Drunk

…Lil’ Wayne

Pleaded guilty to attempted gun possession. A judge will sentence him later this month, once he gets over the fact that this case had nothing to do with weed. Holy crap- to find the gun on this dude, how many one-hitters did police run their hands over while frisking him?

…Jon Gosselin

Finally returned the $180K he stole from his family. AHEM, in a related story, say it with me America, Ed Hardy clothing stores reported $180K in returned clothes.

…Ashlee Simpson

Fired from the new Melrose Place. Next up for the failed pop-singer? Sucking at painting! Seriously, after her album bombing this is the 2nd bad thing to happen to Ashlee Simpson in a row- 3rd if you count marrying Pete Wentz!

…Driving A La-Z-Boy While Drunk

This dude pleaded guilty to driving a motorized La-Z-Boy while hammered. I don’t blame him, pretty hard to fight a DWI when you’re caught on a vehicle that would only make sense to be in when you’re shit-faced. What happened, he drive along until he heard a cop say over his PA “pull the chair over!”

Also, I have it on pretty good authority where the place for a stamp was, she put some spaghetti, so there- she’s nuts!

But then there were apologies and people getting offended and hurt feelings all around…what the “F” people? I don’t get it, is it because she’s holding up a book?

What Sucks…Sharks!

After a Sea World employee in Scotland was bitten by a shark in an aquarium yesterday this UK based website labeled the story as “weird”. Obviously they either don’t know what a shark is, or do not label stories that appear on their website under the title “not-surprising”. So, reason 3788 that sharks blow- you don’t even have to be in the ocean to be bitten by one.

Yes, you would think you are relatively safe from shark attacks if you were either A) in the United Kingdom, B) at a Sea World or C) at an aquarium, but it turns out none of that is true.

And apparently, this particular shark- an “angel shark” or “monkfish” is known for ambush attacks, where it basically hides under something till its prey (read: anything it wants to bite) comes close enough for it to spring. Apparently, they grow close to 5 feet most of the time and even though they can look like a ray, trust me it is a friggin’ shark and will kill you.

The good news is, these sharks take a long time to reproduce and a substantial time to mature once they are born, so if we kill a bunch of them quickly- with bombs or Sarah Palin in a “water-plane”, we have a good shot at wiping them out! RECORD SCRATCH!

The Wildlife and Countryside Act of Great Britain is protecting these killers? Unbelievable!

What Sucks…The Reaper

Sorry for the back to back reaper posts, but the Reaper took Al Martino, or as he was known in the Godfather, Johnny Fontane, this week and if I didn’t say something about it, I think it would send the wrong message. As a matter of fact, if I thought it would do any good, I’d make sure that the reaper would be waking up with a horse’s head in his bed with him this morning, ‘cept that the reaper is a sick fuck who would probably enjoy that.

Anyway, Al Martino had a 50-year singing career where he had to play ball with the Mafia, appeared in one of the greatest movies of all time and served as a marine in World War II, getting wounded in the battle of Iwo Jima. So yeah, put it this way not sure you can any of those things about Michael Bublé.

On a quick, personal, note which makes this entry all about me, when I was a younger person just getting his start in show biz (I’m “26” now, this was when I first started in the biz at 16) I worked as the receptionist at a pretty big comedy talk show (brag). Part of my job was to answer the phone for the talent department and one day the representatives of Al Martino called to see if they could get him on the show. True story. While taking the message I had a wonderful idea, I would tell the publicist on the other end of the phone, once I finished taking her number, that “Al Martino would be perfect for this gig” and that furthermore it would “make him a big star” but that he wasn’t going to get it because I, as a receptionist, was going to “run him out of the business”.

After an awkward moment she tried to speak but I cut her off saying “You don’t understand- Al Martino never gets this spot!” And I offered to tell her why- adding that Martino tried to “make me look ridiculous” and that “a man in my position can’t afford to look ridiculous!”

Silence on the other end of the phone. Later, I was called into the talent director’s office and told to “just take the message.”

Al Martino, RIP.

What Sucks…The Reaper

This summer was an exercise in talking about how much the Reaper sucked- so much so in fact I started to believe the Reaper was just offing people for the attention. So when he took the woman from Peter, Paul & Mary (Mary Tavers) and noted jazz musician and power forward Wayman Tisdale, I didn’t even post about it. But today, I can’t ignore that the Reaper took Captain Lou Albano, the great wrestler, manager of wrestlers and scene stealer from Cindi Lauper videos at the all-too-young age of 76.

Captain Lou revolutionized wrestling in the mid-to-late 80’s by seeing something that no one else at the time had the vision to see, specifically that wrestling could be combined with music and that that combo would INCREASE its popularity. Seriously, who knew?

Captain Lou also revolutionized rubber bands in terms of using them with beards and as facial piercings and I shudder to think where the careers of Magnificent Don Muraco, The Samoans, and Greg “The Hammer” Valentine would have gone if not for his guidance.

Captain Lou, RIP.

What Sucks Salutes Giant Balls: The Health Insurance Industry

So, the scumbag Heath Insurance Industry, who routinely drop people from their coverage when they get ill, who won’t even insure you if they feel you have a pre-existing condition, and who consistently and institutionally under-perform when you in fact HAVE insurance, are going to weigh in right now and tell everyone that if any health care reform bill goes through (and the one they have lined up is some weak-ass shit) the result will be that premiums will sky-rocket and that care will decline.

All I can say is…balls. Huge ones. Ones that should really be looked at by a well-trained physician.

All this mind you despite the fact that the piece-of-garbage politicians we have, have already all but caved on a “public option”, which by the way, would have made a real difference in leveling the playing field for people in need of coverage. A public option, incidentally, favored by upwards of 60% of the people in polls taken as recently as last week.

So the health insurance industry, who, basically have written this bill will now venture in to try to tell us, those who they are currently fucking, that this bill sucks and its implementation will cause them to fuck us more.


I hope the size of their balls is not diagnosed as a “pre-existing” condition, because then they would not be covered in any treatment they would need to decrease the size of their enormous, eclipse causing, balls.

Seriously folks, are we gonna wait for someone to be denied coverage for breast cancer because an insurance company determined they have a pre-existing condition such as having a breast?

They didn’t cover a baby last week because they felt he was too chubby! These people are sick and they own the politicians who write laws that benefit them, and keep us one serious sickness from bankruptcy.

What Sucks…Roman Polanski Defenders

So, 30 years or so ago, Roman Polanski had sex with a 13-year-old girl after slipping her booze and a mickey, and basically admitted to it in court. Then, he hightailed it out of here in a big way, moving to France and living in Europe where he made films, had a family and won awards. The other day, he was arrested in Switzerland where he now waits to see whether or not he will be extradited to the US, to serve the time for the incident.

News of his arrest made all the horrible cable news channels and talk shows that infect our country, and people displayed their outrage at how he hasn’t been brought home yet although no one seemed to ask- why the hell it has taken 30 years. Before I could write a blog entry about how it sucks that all of these a-holes now, all of a sudden, think it’s a big idea, the OTHER side of this argument releases a huge-ass petition of people that want Polanski to be released and let off the hook.

And why?

From what I can determine, because he’s a good director. Because he made “Chinatown”, and “Rosemary’s Baby”, and I guess “The Pianist” (porn version of that film by the way, also called “The Pianist”).

That was the argument. Oh and that it wasn’t “Rape rape”.

First off, he also made “Pirates”! And “Frantic”! So, you know, let’s reevaluate the whole good director thing. Secondly, “Rape rape”? Are you serious? You can say it wasn’t “Rape rape”? Was he charged with “Rape rape”?

Lookit, I still get letters from the Weehawken Municipal Court about parking tickets I got in the early 2000’s- and I’m a successful blogger and creator of the great Mocap, LLC. This guy directs a movie about a waif who gets knocked up by the devil and we should forget about him having sex with a 13 year-old? No way, pervs!

That is how detestable these people are! A guy can get fired from his own family! (Sorry about the caps but I didn’t think we were allowed to fire anyone from a family- Cousin Sue- you’re on notice!)

So NOW can we PLEASE not ever have to hear from Jon & Kate again? Every time I see them I literally feel like I’m going through a divorce….awkwardly sitting through their silent tension…walking on eggshells because a fight could break out at any minute…soon I’ll have to put the fake smile on when meeting their “new” boyfriend or girlfriend. Oh, they’ll both try and tell me that mommy or daddy only made a new “friend”, but come on- how many “friends” sleep over in the same bed? Okay? I’m not dumb.

And why do I have to go through this again!?! I already went through my parent’s divorce!

I feel bad for the person who pitched this show- it’s gone from a heartwarming tale of a young couple dealing with 8 adorable kids, to a stark drama about the fragility of the human psyche.

When this thing came out it was “Jon & Kate, brought to you by Gerber’s Baby Food…” And now it’s… “Jon & Kate, sponsored by “Bum Fights” DVD out this Tuesday.

You rent season 5 on Netflix, it says “viewers also enjoyed…‘A Clockwork Orange’.

It’s devolved into a contest to see who’s more hate-able. Kate’s mean to the kids…Jon’s wearing Ed Hardy shirts. Jon has an affair with the babysitter…Kate has an affair with a bodyguard- all these affairs- I have friends with one kid and I haven’t seen them in months, these losers have EIGHT, you know how determined they must be to have affairs?

Then Jon goes on Good Morning America and tells the country he despises- DESPISES Kate, because, I guess, that’s easier than having to say “Mommy and daddy are breaking up” 8 times.

Game over, right? Think again, Kate’s getting a talk show or something. It’s like Ali- Fraizer of who’s the bigger a-hole.

OJ ended relationships in a less-messy way!

So can it be over, please? Forget just making it Kate Plus 8. Let’s just end it before its called “Child Services Plus 8”?
