Really???

I know that American Apparel ads tend to be racy...but really? REALLY?!? This is an all time low. Using porn to sell...well, you know, I'm not sure. I think it might be white and yellow striped tube socks in this ad? I am posting the link, click on it at your own risk, because it's basically porn. (But it's on a blog site of some sort, so don't worry about any sort of viruses you may receive from porn sites.)

Rites of Manhood

I ran into this article on the most terrifying rites of manhood and I suddenly thought about how various forms of media (tv shows, advertisements, movies and etc) exploit this idea of "rites of Manhood" that in order for "boys" to become "men" they have to participate or experience a certain event that epitomizes what it means to be a "man". Any thoughts? Do women go through something similar or is it more of a "male" thing?

Apple Bottom Jeans?

So... From what Dunstan told us today about the Apple Bottoms Jeans contest, I did some searching on YouTube, and didn't come up with much. BUT I did find this clip about AJ from the Backstreet Boys being a judge for who has the best Apple Bottom. It's in German though, so I can't understand it, but you get the gyst from watching it:

I also found a little interview about Nelly's "Apple Bottoms" line, and how he sees it:
