Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
Murphy’s Law – Don’t quit your day job, Hef
In a desperate attempt to stay relevant in a world where magazines are dying and hardcore porn is readily available at the click of a button, Playboy has launched a safe for work website called The Smoking Jacket. The site finally gives fans a chance to prove that they really do read Playboy for the articles. However, there is just one problem – the articles on TSJ suck.
Outside of the In-Crowd – The madman with a box: In celebration of the Eleventh Doctor
Doctor Who fan Courtney Enlow had a hard time letting go of her beloved tenth Doctor, David Tennant. However, once she gave eleventh Doctor Matt Smith a chance, she couldn’t help but be impressed. Thanks to great writing and great acting by Smith, Enlow fully endorses the first Tennant-less season of the show.
Positive Cynicism – Tumblr, I’m very disappointed in you
Last week, Aaron R. Davis was praising Tumblr for being a cutting-edge social networking site. However, after seeing how the site treated an 11-year-old girl called Jessi Slaughter, Davis couldn’t help but see the dark side of Tumblr. This week, he shares Slaughter’s story and speaks out against the site.
Hobo Radio 141 – It’s French for “The Bruce”
It’s not every day that you see a “video art zombie film” about a man convinced he is an alien zombie roaming the streets of L.A. on the prowl for brains and gay sex. Unfortunately, moviegoers in Australia won’t be seeing the film anytime soon, since L.A. Zombie has been banned from being screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival. This week, Joel Murphy and Lars praise L.A. Zombie for its originality and urge Australia to reconsider.
From the Vault – One on One with Kenneth Johnson
It’s not every day that a celebrity is willing to go on the record and say he could crush Sylvester Stallone. Anyone willing to step up and make that kind of bold statement is our kind of guy. So when Kenneth Johnson, of The Shield and Saving Grace fame, promises he could beat Sly in less than a second, that’s not something we’ll soon forget.
In 2008, we caught up with Johnson to chat about working with one of the biggest names in porn, getting killed off of a major television show and being the second-best arm wrestler in the world. If you missed it then, enjoy it now.
