Chloë Sevigny – Halloween Joan of Arc, Morrissey Style

Manny Ramirez: “Who cares – there’s always next year!”

People may rag on for being fans of the Arizona Diamondbacks (sample quip: “All that history, stretching back to 1998!”), but we will take the D’Backs anyday over the Boston Red Sox.

Despite their 2004 World Series Win, the Bo’Sox fans are usually happiest when losing, so they have something to complain bitterly AND endlessly. Which leads us to Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez‘s recent comments about the teams 3-1 deficit in the ALCS:

“If it doesn’t happen, who cares?” Ramirez said Wednesday afternoon. “There’s always next year. It’s not like it’s the end of the world.”

Awesome Manny! With comments like that, we’ll take our expansion team over the “gang of idiots”.

Plus, BOB is nicer than Fenway.

underwear and ladies

A good friend of, the talented Rob Hill, has asked us to do our worst and spread the kind word about his latest project, Naked Ambition: An R-rated Look at an X-rated Industry in which he helped edit and write with photographer Michael Grecco.

Described as “a behind-the-scenes look at the multi-billion dollar porn industry“, which is enough of a teaser for us! Plus, the talent involved in the book is staggering – Larry Flynt, Dave Navarro, Jenna Jameson, Tera Patrick and even the old hedgehog himself, Ron Jeremy.

Buy Naked Ambition, the book comes out November 15, 2007.
