BABEWATCH: “Bruce Lee In Casual Wear” Action Figure

August 5th, 2011 | 3 comments | Posted by Jen

Y’all. I never knew an action figure could be sexy until I laid eyes on Hot Toys’–appropriate name–Bruce Lee in Casual Wear action figure. Bruce Lee’s always been a muthafucka with mad swag but this one you can actually touch. I mean, the shades, the lace-up shirt, those spectators, and a beach chair included? I don’t know if I want to lick him or bite his style. A little bit of both I guess.

Don’t get me wrong. I tried to lust after my brother’s Han Solo action figure back in the day, but they made him ugly back then. Plus my bro never let me near any of his collectibles. Now I know why!

Whether you want to lick him or be him, Bruce Lee in Casual Wear will set you back about $150. Whatevs.

Thanks, Oliver!

Courtney Oh No

August 16th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

I’ve always had a soft spot for Courtney Love. Probably because Live Through This was the only thing I listened to one year in college, depressed and spitting with female rage. I woke up to it in the morning like people do with their coffee and took it in everyday like meds. I still know every word of the album, even though I suck at remembering lyrics.

After Kurt Cobain killed himself, that album became the last living extension of him for me. I don’t mean that in a snarky way; I don’t think he wrote the album like people always say he did, but his influence and Kurt and Courtney’s dark synergy color the whole thing. Kurt was dead. Nirvana was dead. Courtney was living through it.

Last month, Courtney blogged about wishing she had spent more time with Kurt, but she hadn’t wanted to seem like Yoko. Courtney and Yoko have, of course, been inextricably linked, probably for life. Which is fine, because I have a soft spot for Yoko, too, and don’t think John could have made Plastic Ono Band–another favorite “I’m in the mood to kill myself” record of mine–without her.

So when I saw this today on Gizmodo

Kurt Cobain Action Figure

…it really, as an old friend used to say, chapped my butt. WTF? Did Courtney sign off on this garbaggio? What’s next–the Kurt Cobain Shooting Heroin Action Figure?

And then I thought, not even Yoko would stoop this low. But boy, was I wrong:

McFarlane Toys has just released four more Lost action figures, for the characters Sawyer, Mr. Eko, and those hot Koreans, Sun and Jin Kwon.

Sun and Jin Kwon getting some action

(all of this dialogue takes place in Korean)

Jin: Sun! Sun! Run! The Others are coming!

Sun: Take a chill pill, Jin. I’m working on my base tan.

Jin: (winded) Base…wha? Sun, seriously. The Others are coming and they’re going to kill us. (beat) Uh, do you mind untying me?

Sun: Yes, but only because I really need you to rub some SPF on my back. Don’t want to burn my first day laying out!

Sun unties Jin’s hands from stick.

Jin: Sun, are you fucking deaf? I said the Others are coming. Like right now.

Sun: Jin. Dude. Ever notice how the Others are ALWAYS coming? I’m over it.

Jin: Yeah, I kinda know what you mean.

Sun: Be a dear and rub this lotion on my back. And don’t forget my neck and shoulders.

Jin rubs sunblock on Sun’s back.

Jin: Will you really teach me English this season so I don’t have to continue my life as a mute?

Sun: Yes, dear. Now don’t forget–neck and shoulders.
