Denzel Washington’s Flight Is Sexist Disaster Porn

Denzel Washington's  Flight  Is Sexist Disaster Porn

Denzel Washington is one of those actors who could “be interesting reading the phone book,” as the cheeseball saying goes. People don’t really use phone books anymore, but if Denzel starred in a one-man show called The Last Luddite that had him literally reading a phone book for two hours, he’d probably be pretty riveting. He’s good in Flight, it’s just that everything else around him is ridiculous. More »

Is Everyone Doing Cocaine Without Me?

Is Everyone Doing Cocaine Without Me?

The last time I was offered cocaine, it was by a woman snorting it off a porta potty toilet at Fashion Week. This was a few years ago and I always kind of kept this inciden mind. Periodically, often while waiting for 7 years to get into a bathroom at Rose Bar, I would ask myself “who does cocaine?”And Myself replied in this beautiful Margaret Thatcher voice “people who don’t fear the porta potties at Fashion Week.” So, people who are destined to die, soon.

Supermodel Carré Otis: "Cocaine Was Just What People Were Doing"

If anyone needs to be reminded of how horrible the modeling industry can be, it sounds like Carre Otis‘ new memoir Beauty, Disrupted will do that tremendously. Although we’ve already mentioned one of the more nightmarish aspects of her rise to fame–her brutal account of being raped by her agent as a teenager–she discusses in a new interview how she was introduced to cocaine by that same agent and just how stupidly commonplace it is in fashion. …And how overcoming anorexia was more challenging than kicking heroin.

Ladies! How To Do Your Cocaine More Efficiently.

Ladies! How To Do Your Cocaine More Efficiently.

I was waiting in line for the bathroom at the Rose Bar this weekend and I realized that I had been waiting 20 minutes. At first I thought “wow, people here are really bad at peeing.” But then I noticed that pairs of girls were coming out of the restrooms sniffling and wiping their noses. “Oh!” I realized, “they all have summer colds and are helping their friends! What a world of decency we live in!”

“No, Jen,” someone explained, “they are doing tons of coke.”

Ladies, I regret to inform you that you are doing your cocaine inefficiently. Despite not doing coke, I know this, because I spent a significant amount of time in that line trying to devise ways for you to do it faster and better. Here’s the advice Emily Post won’t share with you, because she is too busy snorting all the yeyo More »
