Tara Reid and Fornication

I once thought Tara Reid was the hottest girl alive, along with Jessica Alba, and many others...  But, there was always something a little wrong with this girl, who's career has been something of a mixed bag.  She was all mixed up - with ancestors from countless lands; and attending countless schools, and then - 'marrying' countless men, and then 'divorcing' them...  WIKI:

In March 2000, Reid met Carson Daly on the set of Total Request Live and they began dating.[17] They shared an apartment in New York City and Daly proposed on October 29.[17] In June 2001, Reid and Daly broke off their engagement.[18]

On January 18, 2010, Reid's boyfriend, Michael Axtmann, an Internet entrepreneur from Nuremberg, proposed to her at The Little Door restaurant in Los Angeles. The couple had reportedly planned an intimate ceremony for summer 2010.[20] On April 20, it was reported that the wedding had been called off and the relationship had ended, with a representative stating: "Tara Reid has confirmed that she will not be moving forward with her May 22 nuptials."[21]

In November 2010, Reid began dating Danish businessman Michael Lillelund. According to People magazine, on August 14, 2011, Reid's spokesman reported that she and Lillelund had married the day before in Greece.[22] Lillelund denied it, saying he had not been in contact with Reid since February.[23]

In August 2011, Reid publicized that she had married Bulgarian financier Zachary Kehayov. In October of that year she announced that they were not legally married.[24][25]

Reid dated Infected Mushroom Israeli musician Erez Eisen from 2013 to 2014.[26]

In 2016, she and actor Dean May participated in Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, but were rejected when it was revealed they were not in a relationship.[27]

mm101 note: Tara starred in, The Big Lebowski, (1998), which I saw last night, for the first time(!)  A darn good cult flick.  In this movie, the F-word is used many times.  Wikipedia actually has a list of movies with the F-word in them. Look at the second list, at the bottom of the page.  Notice how the rise of frequency slows in the 1980's, rises sharply around 1994, and then explodes after 9/11, yipes.

I think some movies that people raved about as being deep, edgy classics, were simply movies that barraged people with new heights in F-word frequency.  Cutting edge! I haven't seen too many of the movies (on the main list), it turns out.  I think the biggest F-word movie I have seen is Reservoir Dogs - a DVD I got rid of, along with Pulp Fiction, because I really didn't see much worth to it, other than a fetishisation of violence.  So - what is YOUR biggest Fuck movie?

Big Feet to fill

I heard another confusing health spot on the local radio, where a podiatrist said there are 26 bones in the foot, and 33 joints.  wtf?!

How can the foot  have more joints than bones?!  How is that physically possible??

This early morning, I watched 2004, "Super Size Me," (Morgan Spurlock), for the first time.  It was almost soley anti-McDonalds.  I think it is fine that it was over-the-top, and the experiment - eating nothing but McDonalds for 1 month - had no scientific control group, even though the results were nevertheless convincing.  The movie effected big changes in the industry and in society.  Australia took the movie most seriously.  You know those Aussies, though.  They regularly kill themselves without batting an eye, until they collectively wake up to some danger.  This is a little like the USA, except the Aussies are more honest and humble about the change, and are not constrained in a straightjacket of corporate imperialism - well, not as much as is the USA.

The only part of this movie I could not watch was the stomach operation, where I turned away and simply enjoyed, "The Blue Danube."  The guy's gf/wife was rather nice, an expert vegan chef who looked a little like Amanda Seyfried.  She eventually divorced the guy, and later admitted that she secretly craved meat.  No body's perfect.

Other good food industry documentaries: Fast Food Nation (2006), and, Food, Inc. (2008), both involving Eric Schlosser, (and both related to books of the same names).  Michael Moore, who is overweight, didn't do a documentary on the fast / food industry, per se.  But he did do a good one on the consequences of an unhealthy America, which is its booming, parasitic health care industry: Sicko (2007), which was one inspiration for improving the system, (as yet incomplete, which is why we have Bernie Sanders).  WIKI:

Moore directed the 2007 film, Sicko, about the American health care system, focusing particularly on the managed-care and pharmaceutical industries. At least four major pharmaceutical companiesPfizer, Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca, and GlaxoSmithKline—ordered their employees not to grant any interviews or assist Moore.[37][38][39] According to Moore in a letter on his website, "roads that often surprise us and lead us to new ideas—and challenge us to reconsider the ones we began with have caused some minor delays." The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on May 19, 2007, receiving a lengthy standing ovation, and was released in the U.S. and Canada on June 29, 2007.[40] The film is currently ranked the tenth highest grossing documentary of all time[2] and received an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary Feature.[41]
