Gynomite’s Reading Room!

January 26, 2012 at 10:51 am (gynomite's reading room)

Are they seriously making another of those huge ensemble cast movies about pregnancy? JLo? Cameron Diaz? SERIOUSLY? Why, Anna Kendrick, why? I thought you were better than this!

This is a very interesting piece at Jezebel speculating about why…. ahem, jizzing in a woman’s face is considered so chic in pornography and beyond.

There’s a chance that several major food companies are using aborted fetuses in their food, or Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey is an idiot. At Gawker.

Here’s a breakdown of what black people watch on TV.

Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre is working on a experimental performance piece about ICP. Yup, read that sentence again.

I dunno, maybe I’m over sensitive, and too PC, and all the other things that ignorant folk sometimes say when they’re being assholes, but I think that a movie poster like this kinda encourages fear.

Seriously? NO ONE IS SAFE with a picture of a black man’s face, even a face as beloved as Denzel’s? It just seems like it’s encouraging some deep down fears. By the way, if the movie is Denzel being a bad guy, I’m totally in.

    there are ads for this same film in nyc subways, and it has the same tagline but with both denzel and ryan reynolds. i sort of see it in this version of the ad, but i also tend to be overly p.c.

    i also have no idea what the movie is about, and have zero interest in seeing it to find out.
