CGI Cock Shots - Film's New "Locker Room Shower"

So, we couldn't help but have our interest piqued by this Towleroad post about the upcoming CGI Beowulf film, in which writer Roger Avary discusses how he feels about showing a cartoonized Ray Winstone fighting monsters in only his (magnificent) birthday suit:
"When I wrote it, I envisaged the character of Den in the Heavy Metal comic. Den was a character by Richard Corben, who was easily one of my favorite artists. [Den] was this muscular guy with a gigantic schlong. He would always go into battle and beat the hell out of people, totally in the buff. He never wore clothes. That kind of stuck with me. I love it when somebody takes something like a fight — or really any event — and twists it to the point where you're naked doing it. Also, there was a proud tradition of berserkers going into battle naked. It just shows how fearless you are. I don't know about you, but if someone came at me, like, 'Aaaaargh!' naked, I'd be, 'Whoa!' Had we done it [like] Richard Corben's Den, the MPAA would have had huge, huge problems. As it is, I think the movie is going to have to achieve a more tempered rating. I don't think that we're going to be [seeing] Beowulf's gigantic, you know, baby's-arm-holding-an-apple-sized schlong onscreen. However, because this is performance-capture, it's not inconceivable that, at some point down the road, they simply re-render, widen-out shots, move things out of the way and put together a hard-R or NC-17 version of the movie."
We just went to the movie's website to see their adult only trailer (you have to put in your birthdate to see it), which features a CGI Angelina Jolie in the buff, but only a split second of Winstone's ass. Is it pathetic that, while this isn't a movie we'd normally see (it doesn't seem to bear much relation to the "Beowulf" we read in freshman Lit), the addition of a giant cartoon penis would probably make us rent the DVD?

Someone's Finally Hitting Hard on Post Homophobia

We've been really appreciating Jeff Bercovici's coverage of the New York Post's homophobia lately. And today he really drives the point home: practically no gays work there. Read his column today to hear all about the Post's institutionalized prejudice. Also, admire his pic - while not gay, he certainly is dreamy....

The Cock's Liquor License Under Review! Crotch Grabbing in East Village Threatened!

Just so everyone knows, the Cock's liquor license is up for review this week. They've had complaints so it may not be an easy pass (we totally wish we knew what the complaints were! "Men drinking on the sidewalk…Men smoking on the sidewalk…Men too loud on the sidewalk…Men blocking the sidewalk…Men fucking on the sidewalk…). It makes us think back to the first time we went there, during our first summer in New York. It was back when it was the Hole and the basement was used for sex and drugs (well, we saw sex, but as for drugs, back then we didn't know what to look for). At one point a giant muscleman with a shaved head and a ten-pack walked up to us and grabbed our crotch. We were so scared/confused/drunk/slightly turned on that we nearly passed out. Thankfully, we didn't stay at the bar long – and we don't go there often these days. We've begun to start seeing people we know every time we go, and that's never good. Now, for the best "ugly people getting blowjobs" viewing, we know to go to Boysroom.

Well, hello.

So in order to explain why the hell we haven't been writing, we thought we'd give you a little insight into our daily life. See, we got this new job lately. Instead of actual newspaper reporting, we now write a blog. Which is so taxing that by the end of the day, we're not as eager to write on our personal blog. But we will keep trying. Anyway, because we write a blog, we start work from home, and then go into the office around noon. That means that when we begin typing away, our first gay roommate is making coffee and getting ready for work. After a little bit, our second gay roommate gets up and drinks the rest of the coffee, and tries to distract us from our work. This is sort of a fun way to start the day, but also a bit taxing since both first gay roommate AND second gay roommate are huge whores and there's always some sort of drama/man in the apartment in the morning. To our knowledge, first gay roommate and second gay roommate have yet to hook up.

The upside of all of this gayness is that we've started having more dinner parties. The downside of it is that none of us are actually stylish gays, so the apartment isn't any nicer. Anyway, now the main question seems to be when to have our first underwear party. Will it be too chilly in October?

Tastelessness - Now, With Taste!

Wow, it's been a while since we've had an offensive joke from a (former) co-worker. Here goes:

Why is Michael Jackson like caviar?

They both come on little white crackers.
