Greta, writer/director of Ladybird and Little Women, wasn’t always an esteemed, hot-shot writer and director. About a decade ago she was acting in a bunch of films dubbed “mumblecore” for reasons which would be obvious if you had ever seen one.

She was by far the best thing about these films. She was prettier, more daring, a better actress and a better writer than any of her co-stars, and I use the word “stars” with great hesitation, although one of her fellow cast members, Mark Duplass, was also quite competent and managed to move into the world of real movies and TV.

Greta also looked great naked, as she demonstrated here in the immortal classic Hannah Takes the Stairs (2007), in which she was naked a lot.

Greta didn’t just star. She also wrote Hannah Takes the Stairs, for which she should probably be followed around by those “Shame” women from Cersei’s naked walk in Game of Thrones. (Hey, Greta got better.)

My comments on the film, and mumblecore in general, follow in the “read more” section.

Beautiful woman. As far as I know, this is her only nude appearance, but it was a good one, good enough to make the top ten among our Top Nude Scenes of 2008.

According to Wikipedia, “She has two sons. She has largely retired from acting and modelling to focus on raising them.”

Although she did only T&A in the released film (Virgin Territory), she did full frontal in the deleted scenes (see below). Apparently the crotch shots were cut because the story takes place in the 14th century and the Groombridge grooming seemed a tad inappropriate for the period.

Again, I wish I was kidding. Apparently the Mexicans have trained the vultures to do their evil bidding. First the birds shit on our communications, then the Mexicans stroll across with impunity when the border patrol is rendered impotent.

I learned from this article that a group of vultures is called “a kettle of vultures.”

I don’t know why English has all these different group words instead of just calling all bird groups a “flock,” but they are truly fascinating, and some are quite beautiful.

Burt played Robin in the 1960’s Batman show.

“Actor claimed his bulge was considered ‘too large for television’

Yeah, my dick is too large, that’s the ticket.

Ward continued …

“I was a straight-A student at UCLA. In fact, the Dean at UCLA was upset with me when I left in my third year to do Robin because she said I should have been a nuclear physicist.”

Yeah, my brain is even larger than my dick, that’s the ticket.


If Ward is not currently satisfied with his employment status, it strikes me that he would make an excellent press secretary for you-know-who.

I wish I was kidding, but am not.

Gwyneth Paltrow Is Selling A Candle That ‘Smells Like My Vagina’

So many questions. Just like HERS? Do her ladybits smell different from the others? Are they redolent of butterscotch, honeysuckle, fresh-baked Christmas cookies and a meadow of wildflowers after a spring rain? Or are they just your basic standard issue?
