I’m All for Naked Girls, but..

Have you all seen the new Lindsay Lohan photos?

from People.com

In what is likely her greatest role to date, Lindsay Lohan plays Marilyn Monroe between the sheets – literally – in the new spring fashion issue of New York magazine.

Recreating Monroe’s legendary 1962 final photo shoot for Bert Stern with the veteran lensman himself, Lohan posed for the spread on Feb. 5 at the Hotel Bel-Air.

Here is a link to the photos. The photos are gross.  They are cheap, exploitative, and visually disturbing.  She is a drug addict slut and is likely to suffer a Marilyn Monroe fate.  So the accompanying articles references to Monroe (and Heath Ledger’s) untimely deaths make Lohan seem out of touch with reality (she talks about how that won’t happen to her).  The camera man, Stern, is famous for the originals and the sexy depth they showed.  These are cheap restagings that don’t deserve the media storm they are generating.  Additionally, couldn’t someone airbrush the 40,000 freckles off her body.

At least she isn’t rail thin anymore.  Now her extremely pale boobs are a reasonable size.


Macs + Porn + Trojan = ??

November 3, 2007


You’re not very computer savy. You like porn. You dislike viruses. You must own a Mac. Not so much anymore.

Don’t get me wrong I like Apple, but every now and then everyone needs to be knocked off their high horse. If you thought “I’ll get a Mac and that will keep me safe from viruses/malware”, you have pretty much always been right. But now it’s being reported there is a new Trojan that effects Mac computers. I think this is only the beginning. Everyone likes challenges and that certainly includes hackers and virus writers.

SAN FRANCISCO — Hackers have launched a rare and troubling attack on Apple Inc.’s computers.

Apple on Thursday confirmed reports of pornography Web sites where hidden software, once downloaded, could take control of an Apple computer. Apple did not immediately respond to claims that it is the first instance of a Trojan horse attack on Apple’s Macintosh platform.

“We’ve been made aware that a small number of Web sites attempt to trick Mac OS X users to install malicious software on their Macs,” said Apple spokeswoman Lynn Fox. “Apple has a great track record for keeping Mac OS X users secure, and as always, we encourage people to install software only from trusted sources.”

The timing of the Trojan horse suggests there are more to come, say some computer and Internet security professionals. As Apple’s popularity rises, “the bad guys are taking Macs seriously now,” wrote Bojan Zdrnja, of the Internet Storm Center, which is led by the Escal Institute of Advanced Technologies.

After confirming the claims reported by computer-security firm Intego, Symantec engineer Joji Hamada wrote on Symantec’s Web site of suspicions that a wave of attacks and viruses are due. “If we see a rise in Mac malware, then we will have to assume that there are profits to be made in malware for Macs as well,” he wrote. “Stay tuned.”

Making homemade porn?

October 3, 2007

UPDATE/EDIT: the tape turned out to be a fake

So the rumor mill was working double yesterday. Supposedly there is an Eva Longoria and Tony Parker sex tape making the rounds. Sexperts are predicting if the tape is authentic it will be the biggest tape since “One Night in Paris”. I may not a sexpert yet, but I know porn. It doesn’t take a genius to tell you that if two hot celebrities are doing it on camera it is going to sell like hotcakes. But now I want to talk about the more serious issue at hand. Homemade porn.

I think making a porn with your partner (a loving, trustable person hopefully whom you have been with for a long time) can be an okay idea. Some people say “no, it’s always a bad idea” but I think in certain situations it can good way to keep your sex life fresh. That said, there needs to be precautions taken that your video never shows up on the web. Because no matter how much you think no one would want to see your imperfect non famous naked ass, someone would watch it. So either only view it on the camera or be prepared to destroy it at the first sign of problems in your relationship. Another more tech way I suggest to protect delicate files is to password protect it, but make sure you only know half the password, and the other person knows half.

Here are some homemade sex tape tips I found:

  • Shave and trim before shooting
  • Cover up leg marks with stockings
  • Use makeup, but not stage/film quantities
  • Set the mood while you prepare yourself, feelings come out in photos
  • Use sex videos and pictures to mimic and act out for inspiration
  • When solo, use remote controls, self timers, and editing
  • Find a personal balance between focusing on the camera and focusing on the act
  • Make full use of available props, toys, and costumes
  • If the exhibitionist inside starts clawing their way out, make sure you’re down with 2257
