"Bad (Not Bad Ass) Tattoo": Bubble Burst

Of all the "sweet" things in the world, bubble gum was the obvious choice of tattoo for this woman? There really isn't much commentary I can offer on this one. It is obviously awful. And another reminder just how random people can get with their tat ideas. Why oh why?

"Dirty Joke": Standards

A prostitute is recently diagnosed with heart trouble but decides to go to work anyway.

She is approached by a potential customer and tells him, "It's gonna be 50 dollars, but I have to tell you, I have acute angina."

He replies, "Well I hope so, because your face is kind of ugly."

"The Hard Sell: Taboo In Advertising": Panty Sniffer

I'm pretty sure this ad for Ariel detergent depicting a man sniffing a woman's panties is supposed to imply her laundry smells really great, but surely the makers of the ad (firm Saatchi & Saatchi) thought it would be entertaining to portray a guy taking on the role of a pervert. The inscription reads "Now With Jasmine" in case you're curious, but don't worry--it has absolutely no connection to the concept. This ad's role is clearly to stir up opinion and not much else. The play on laundry and perversion is somewhat entertaining although not remotely genius.

News Spotlight: Gaga Fraud?

So it's being reported that Lady Gaga is being sued for pocketing money from her Japan relief bracelets. It remains to be seen if this is for real or just a ploy cooked up by a law firm to get some publicity. To be continued...

From Business Insider: "A law firm in Michigan is suing Lady Gaga for scamming her fans and pocketing some of the proceeds from the "We Pray For Japan" bracelets that she has been selling to her fans.

According to her website, all of the proceeds from the bracelets were for charity.

Those that are suing her say that Lady Gaga inflated the shipping charges for the bracelets as well as keeping some of the $5 dollars that she charged for the bracelets.

How 1-800-LAW-FIRM's clients know this is unclear, and they even admit that they have no idea how much money is being used fraudulently. Whether this is true or not, selling those bracelets has helped Lady Gaga already donate $3 million to help the victims of the March 11 earthquake, according to Kyodo News.

When the federal class-action suit was filed against her on Saturday, the singer was about to headline at a benefit concert in Tokyo for tsunami victims."

"Sexpot of the Week": Anna Paquin

Blood does the body good. Ever since Anna Paquin has taken on the role of Sookie Stackhouse for the True Blood series, she has somehow gotten hotter and hotter as the show has progressed. With the return of the new season this weekend, she is being honored for this progressive hotness. It probably has something to do with the fact that the sexy men on the show get more and more fascinated with her so we are inclined to as well. Then the fact she bagged Bill in real life is the official stamp that she is one desirable mind-reading, gap-toothed (love it) vixen.

"Dirty Joke": True Love

A trucker goes into a whorehouse and hands the Madam five hundred dollars. He says, "I want your ugliest woman and a bologna sandwich." The Madam says, "For that kind of money, you could have one of my finest girls and surf and turf." The trucker says, "I'm not horny, I'm homesick."

"Bad (Not Bad Ass) Tattoo": Null and Void

Getting a lover's name will always be the top dummy choice when it comes to tattoos. In the midst of bliss, folks get it done knowing there is a chance the tattoo will outlive the love for the person. And when that love vanishes, all that's left is the option to get a cover up or painful removal. For most people. This guy took a more comical approach to the situation. Melissa's legacy will live on.

News Spotlight: Robbing the Womb

It doesn't happen often, but I'm speechless...

From ABC News: "May-December romances aren't unusual. But when the bride can't yet vote and the groom is eligible to join AARP? That's extreme, even for Hollywood.

"Green Mile" and "Lost" actor Doug Hutchison, 51, revealed on Monday that he wed aspiring country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden, 16, in May.

"We're aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," the couple told E! News in a statement released by their spokesperson. "But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."

Stodden's mother gave parental consent so the two could wed in Las Vegas.

"We are totally supportive of this marriage," Krista Stodden told "Doug is a wonderful man and we love him."

She added, "Courtney was a virgin when she married Doug. She is a good Christian girl."

So, how did the two get involved? The fact that Stodden is signed to Hutchison's production company, Dark Water, might have something to do with it. A former beauty pageant queen (she competed for the title of Miss Teen Washington USA last year), Hutchinson is trying to make it as a country music crooner.

Celebuzz compiled a variety of her YouTube videos, including one where she talks for nearly seven minutes about overcoming bullying and explains that she wrote the song "Don't Put It On Me" (whose video features a pink-haired dog) to support victims of bullying.

Character actor Hutchison is probably best known for playing problematic prison guard Percy Wetmore in "The Green Mile." He also played DHARMA Initiative leader Horace Goodspeed in the TV drama "Lost" and has appeared in "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit," "Guiding Light" and "24."

He's also an author. According to his website, Hutchison recently penned a 99-page memoir titled "Hey, Guess What? Tom Hanks's S**t Smells, Too! (My Adventures in the Toilet of Tinseltown)." He is currently writing a children's book series based on his chihuahua, Everette."

"Monday Man Candy": Ami James

Ami James has been a long-time interest for me. I happen to think he is one of the sexiest people on the planet. I am a sucker for men with lots of tattoos. Add the muscles, bald head, and often intimidating demeanor and forget about it. With all this said, however, once a celebrity is out of the limelight for a while, you tend to forget about them. Sadly, I forgot about my Ami. That is, until NY Ink premiered a couple weeks ago. Not only is Ami back, but he happens to live in the same city as me now. Even though I will never run into him or be stalkerish enough to go to his tattoo shop (although I have Googled it and know where it is already), knowing he's a train ride away brings joy to my heart. A whole new reason for the "I love NY" thing.

News Spotlight: More Amy Winehouse Fuckery

Why won't Amy Winehouse just get her shit together already?! There are few things I really look forward to and her return to music is one of them. She started a "comeback" tour last night. Unfortunately, she was drunk and awful so a comeback it was not. All the news outlets are reporting that she got booed offstage after a set filled with stumbling and other drunkard behaviors. There is nothing more sad than wasted talent. Well, except wasted talent due to drug and alcohol addiction. I hope for her own sake as well as for the sake of music that she can face her demons.

Gaga, Clemons, & Glory

It's nice to see Lady Gaga do a more subdued video for a change. She put aside the theatrics and went for good old fashion dancing and solo shots. Other than the inclusion of recently hospitalized musician Clarence Clemons, there isn't much to it. People are already citing the video as "boring". I guess once you go over the top, no one appreciates simplicity. I find it refreshing. You know the theatrics are one video away people. Please, let's just take this breather.

"Sexpot of the Week": Nicole Scherzinger

Ex-Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger has created quite a career for herself. As the lead singer for the group, her vocals were never amazing, but she had the moves and hot factor to keep our attention. Now that she's left the group and gone the solo route, it seems things keep getting better for her. Just recently, she got the job of a lifetime when it was announced that she will become a judge on X-Factor, America's version of one of the most popular shows in the world. At the expense of someone else yes (Cheryl Cole was fired from the gig), but hey it's a tough business. Gotta get in where you fit in. The American version is expected to be as popular as the international ones so we surely will be seeing much more from the small-waisted sexpot.

"Dirty Joke": Costuming

There was a guy who was struggling to decide what to wear to go to a fancy costume party. Then he had a bright idea. When the host answered the door, he found the guy standing there with no shirt and no socks on. "What the hell are you supposed to be?" asked the host. "A premature ejaculation," said the man. "I just came in my pants!"

"Bad (Not Bad Ass) Tattoo": Bad Assness?

Of course "Bad (Not Bad Ass) Tattoo" has to highlight a tattoo that actually includes the phrase "bad ass". This particular cross-eyed, lipsticked horse is surely not the definition of bad ass, but someone sure thought so. The artwork on this tattoo isn't particularly bad like most entries in this feature, but it was worth an inclusion based on the theme alone. I can't lie though. It's kinda charming.

News Spotlight: Parental F Bombs

Adam Mansbach's "Go the F**k to Sleep" is the latest book phenomenon. In a quest to express his frustration putting his 2-year-old daughter to sleep, he wrote a children's book (geared toward parents of course) about the perils of bedtime. Before its release, it became a viral sensation and as soon as it was available, it became a bestseller. This is proof that although parenting is usually praised as a euphoric experience, it does in actuality, sometimes suck.

"Sexpot of the Week": Amber Rose

Amber Rose hasn't really done much to get all the attention she gets. She does model now, but I'm pretty sure she only started getting real opportunities after dating ex-boyfriend Kanye West. In actuality, all she is ever in the news for is in connection to what famous person she is dating at the time. But so what? She is undoubtedly one of the most stunning women in the limelight. She just doesn't look like other people. A blonde buzz cut? Come on. How many people can pull that off? Light eyes with brown skin. Lots of tits. Even more ass. And like most vixens, she has that "I don't give a fuck" appeal. She's definitely not going in the history books for doing anything special or great accomplishments, but for the present moment the media's fascination with her is warranted.

News Spotlight: Tracy Morgan's Rant

It's officially not okay to make gay jokes. This is evident based on the call for Tracy Morgan's head for his Nashville stand-up routine in which he went on a rant about homosexuals. Of all entertainers, comedians usually get a pass to go as far as they want and to say as many fucked up things as they want without causing an uproar. There are the occasional outrages, but not many. The fact people booed him and walked out is a very clear sign that intolerant joking is not accepted anymore. I love my stand-up comedy filthy, but I also believe in gay rights so I would have to see it for myself to formulate an opinion on whether Morgan went too far.

From ABC News: "Comedian and "30 Rock" actor Tracy Morgan reportedly went on a vicious tirade against gay people during a standup show in Nashville.

Audience member Kevin Rogers, who is gay, wrote on his Facebook page called "Why I No Longer 'Like' Tracy Morgan, stating, "I figured at some point the gay jokes would fly and I'm well prepared for a good ribbing of straight gay humor. I have very thick skin when it comes to humor; I can dish and I can take."

He continued: "What I can't take is when Mr. Morgan took it upon himself to mention about how he feels all this gay s**t was crazy and that women are a gift from God and that 'Born this Way' is bulls**t, gay is a choice, and the reason he knows this is exactly because 'God don't make no mistakes.' Morgan's raunchy lewd statements also included how he'd stab his son to death if he said he was gay."

The Ryman Auditorium responded in a statement regarding Morgan's statements made in the June 3, 201 appearance, saying the theater "regrets that people were offended by statements" Morgan made, adding that it "does not control the content presented by people appearing on its stage, nor does it endorse any of the views of, or statements made by, such persons."

Morgan's rep issued a statement to gay rights Web site Unicorn Booty saying, "There is no comment. Thank you."

Calls to Morgan's rep by ABC News were not immediately returned.

This is not the first time that Morgan has been accused of homophobic slurs. In a 2009 Carnegie Hall standup show, audience members walked out within the first 30 minutes after Morgan again stated that homosexuality was a choice. An audience member told the New York Daily News, "There was a continuous flow of people getting up and leaving throughout the show. Middle-aged women were the most flabbergasted when he started mimicking explicit sex acts on stage.""

"Dirty Joke": Office Politics

After the annual office Christmas party blow-out, John woke up with a pounding headache, cotton-mouthed, and utterly unable to recall the events of the preceding evening. After a trip to the bathroom he was able to make his way downstairs, where his wife put some coffee in front of him. "Louise," he moaned, "tell me what went on last night. Was it as bad as I think?"

"Even worse," she assured him in her most scornful one. "You made a complete ass of yourself, succeeded in antagonizing the entire board of directors, and insulted the chairman of the company to his face."

"He's an arrogant, self-important prick, piss on him!"

"You did. All over his suit," Louise informed him. "And he fired you."

"Well, fuck him," said John.

"I did. You're back at work on Monday."

"Bad (Not Bad Ass) Tattoo": Miseducation

"The Hard Sell": Taboo In Advertising

The above ads depicting humanity crimes as sport with ties to the 2008 Beijing Olympics were part of a campaign done by advertising agency TBWA France for Amnesty International. The very powerful campaign focusing on human rights (or lack there of) in China, however, was refused by Amnesty for being too negative. Well, TBWA's office didn't want its hard work to go to waste and decided to enter it into the Cannes Lions advertising contest. And then shit hit the fan.

The ad won an award. It got lots of attention online. The Chinese were pissed and called for boycotts. Amnesty denied all ties to the ads, reporting its original rejection. And TBWA Worldwide claimed the France office entered the contest unknowingly to everyone else in the agency and put out an investigation. So basically, everyone backtracked and didn't want anything to do with the campaign. And what a shame. It is a very innovative and creative concept. And the fact it has a real message on top of the creativity makes it brilliant.

And I Quote...

"Vice Pioneers": Salome

Salomé, by Henri Regnault (1870)

Salome with the Head of John the Baptist by Titian, c 1515 (Galleria Doria Pamphilj, Rome)

Salome (2003), by A.Voytovych

I visted The Met a few weeks ago to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit and while waiting in the line, I came across the Regnault painting above. I loved it even though I didn't get to really look into it or the subject matter. And that was it. Now weeks later, while looking up some info on stripping for today's "Vice Pioneers", it popped up again. Salome, the subject matter for this painting, is quite the character so I thought I'd hold off on the stripping. For today, we'll just delve into Salome and her Dance of the Seven Veils, which is considered by many the first striptease.

From Wikipedia: "Salome (Greek: Σαλωμη, Salōmē), the Daughter of Herodias (c AD 14 - between 62 and 71), is known from the New Testament (Mark 6:17-29 and Matt 14:3-11, where, however, her name is not given). Another source from Antiquity, Flavius Josephus's Jewish Antiquities, gives her name and some detail about her family relations.

Her name in Hebrew is שלומית (Shlomiẗ, IPA: [ʃlomiθ]) and is derived from the root word ŠLM (שלם), meaning "peace".

Christian traditions depict her as an icon of dangerous female seductiveness, for instance depicting as erotic her dance mentioned in the New Testament (in some later transformations further iconised to the dance of the seven veils), or concentrate on her lighthearted and cold foolishness that, according to the gospels, led to John the Baptist's death.

A new ramification was added by Oscar Wilde, who in his play Salome portrayed her as something of a femme fatale. This last interpretation, made even more memorable by Richard Strauss's opera based on Wilde, is not consistent with Josephus's account; according to the Romanized Jewish historian, she lived long enough to marry twice and raise several children. Few literary accounts elaborate the biographical data given by Josephus.

Biblical character
According to Mark 6:21-29 (Salome is not mentioned by name in this passage so reference is incomplete), Salome was the stepdaughter of Herod Antipas. Salome danced before Herod and her mother Herodias at the occasion of his birthday, and in doing so gave her mother the opportunity to obtain the head of John the Baptist. According to Mark's gospel Herodias bore a grudge against John for stating that Herod's marriage to Herodias was unlawful; Herodias encouraged Salome to demand that John be executed.

And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee; And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee. And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom. And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist. And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her. And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison, and brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother. And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb. (Mark 6:21-29, KJV)

A parallel passage to Mark 6:21-29 is in the Gospel of Matthew 14:6-11: "But on Herod's birthday, the daughter of Herodias danced before them: and pleased Herod. Whereupon he promised with an oath, to give her whatsoever she would ask of him. But she being instructed before by her mother, said: Give me here in a dish the head of John the Baptist. And the king was struck sad: yet because of his oath, and for them that sat with him at table, he commanded it to be given. And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

And his head was brought in a dish: and it was given to the damsel, and she brought it to her mother. And his disciples came and took the body, and buried it, and came and told Jesus. (Matt 14:6-11, D-R)"

Some ancient Greek versions of Mark read "Herod's daughter Herodias" (rather than "daughter of the said Herodias"). To scholars using these ancient texts, both mother and daughter had the same name. However, the Latin Vulgate Bible translates the passage as it is above, and western Church Fathers therefore tended to refer to Salome as "Herodias's daughter" or just "the girl". Nevertheless, because she is otherwise unnamed in the Bible, the idea that both mother and daughter were named Herodias gained some currency in early modern Europe.

This Salome is not considered to be the same person as Salome the disciple, who is a witness to the Crucifixion of Jesus in Mark 15:40.

Salome in the arts
Salome has become a symbol for dangerous female seductiveness. Her dance before Herod, or with the head of John the Baptist on a charger have provided inspiration for Christian artists.

Despite Josephus's account, she was not consistently called Salome until the nineteenth century, when Gustave Flaubert (following Josephus) referred to her as Salome in his short story "Herodias".

Painting and sculpture
Salome and the Apparition of the Baptist's Head, watercolor by Gustave MoreauThis Biblical story has long been a favourite of painters. Painters who have done notable representations of Salome include Titian, Henri Regnault, Georges Rochegrosse, Gustave Moreau, Federico Beltran-Masses and Alexander Voytovych. Titian's version (illustration c.1515) emphasizes the contrast between the innocent girlish face and the brutally severed head. Because of the maid by her side, this Titian painting is also considered to be Judith with the Head of Holofernes. Unlike Salome who goes nameless in the Christian bible, Judith is a Judeo-Christian mythical patriot whose story is perhaps less psychological and being a widow, may not be particularly girlish nor innocent in representations. In Moreau's version (illustration, left) the figure of Salome is emblematic of the femme fatale, a fashionable trope of fin-de-siecle decadence. In his 1884 novel À rebours Frenchman Joris-Karl Huysmans describes, in somewhat fevered terms, the depiction of Salome in Moreau's painting:

No longer was she merely the dancing-girl who extorts a cry of lust and concupiscence from an old man by the lascivious contortions of her body; who breaks the will, masters the mind of a King by the spectacle of her quivering bosoms, heaving belly and tossing thighs; she was now revealed in a sense as the symbolic incarnation of world-old Vice, the goddess of immortal Hysteria, the Curse of Beauty supreme above all other beauties by the cataleptic spasm that stirs her flesh and steels her muscles, - a monstrous Beast of the Apocalypse, indifferent, irresponsible, insensible, poisoning.

Oscar Wilde's play
Salomé's story was made the subject of a play by Oscar Wilde that premiered in Paris in 1896, under the French name Salomé. In Wilde's play, Salome takes a perverse fancy for John the Baptist, and causes him to be executed when John spurns her affections. In the finale, Salome takes up John's severed head and kisses it.

Because at the time British law forbade the depiction of Biblical characters on stage, Wilde wrote the play originally in French, and then produced an English translation (titled Salome). To this Granville Bantock composed incidental music, which was premiered at the Court Theatre, London, on 19 April 1918.

Wilde's Salome has often been made into a film, notably a 1923 silent film, Salome, starring Alla Nazimova in the title role and a 1988 Ken Russell play-within-a-film treatment, Salome's Last Dance, which also includes Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas as characters. Steven Berkoff filmed his stage version of the play in 1988.

In the 1950 film Sunset Boulevard, the principal character Norma Desmond is portrayed as writing a screenplay for a silent film treatment of the legend of Salome, attempting to get the screenplay produced, and performing one of the scenes from her screenplay after going mad.

IMDB lists at the very least 25 Salome/Salomé films, and numerous resettings of the Salome story to modern times.

Dance of the Seven Veils
In several notable works of Western culture, the Dance of the Seven Veils (usually described as danced by Salome) is one of the elaborations on the biblical tale of the execution of John the Baptist. Details enriching the story in later Christian mythology include providing a name for the dance, and describing the purpose of the dance as being to inflame King Herod with incestuous desire so that he would treat John as she wished.

Biblical account
According to ten verses of Matthew 14, John was imprisoned for criticizing King Herod Antipas's marriage to Herodias, the former wife of Antipas' "brother" Herod Philip I. Herod offered his niece a reward of her choice for performing a dance on his birthday. Herodias persuaded her daughter to ask for John the Baptist's head on a platter. Against his better judgment, Antipas reluctantly acceded to her request.

Possible origin in pre-Christian myths
The Dance of the Seven Veils is also thought to have originated with the myth of the goddess Ishtar and the god Tammuz of Assyrian and Babylonian lore. In this myth, Ishtar decides to visit her sister, Ereshkigal, in the underworld. When Ishtar approaches the gates of the underworld, the gatekeeper lets Ishtar pass through the seven gates, opening one gate at a time. At each gate, Ishtar has to shed an article of clothing. When she finally passes the seventh gate, she is naked. In a rage, Ishtar throws herself at Ereshkigal, goddess of the underworld; but Ereshkigal orders her servant Namtar to imprison Ishtar and unleash sixty diseases against her. After Ishtar descends to the underworld, all sexual activity ceases on earth. Papsukkal, the messenger-god, reports the situation to Ea, king of the gods. Ea creates a eunuch called Asu-shu-namir and sends him to Ereshkigal, telling him to invoke "the name of the great gods" against her and to ask for the bag containing the waters of life. Ereshkigal, having promised to grant Asu-shu-namir's wish, is enraged when she hears the demand, but she has to give him the water of life. Asu-shu-namir sprinkles Ishtar with this water, reviving her. Then Ishtar passes back through the seven gates, getting one article of clothing back at each gate, and is fully clothed as she exits the last gate. Her release is, however, granted only under the condition that she find someone to replace her in the underworld. Tammuz, Ishtar's husband, has been making merry while she has been dead, and so the goddess sends Tammuz to Ereshkigal."

News Spotlight: Decades Long Hotness

Jennifer Aniston is 42 and looks pretty damn good, but is she really the "hottie of the decade"? I think of her more as cutesy than a flat-out hottie, but to each her own. I will say, however, that pictures like the one above serve as validation for these kinda claims.

From The Celebrity Cafe: "It’s official: Spike TV wants everyone to know that Jennifer Aniston is hot – and has been for at least a decade.

At the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards, her Horrible Bosses co-star, Jason Sudeikis, presented her with the Decade of Hotness Award on behalf of the viewers of the cable network.

After being presented with the award, Aniston joked about her Friends-era fashion, saying, “A decade? That would put it at [2001], which is good because I had some sketchy looks in the '90s."

The 42-year-old actress said that she had a yoga regimen to thank for her continued good looks and physique."
