Oh, good Lord. This is what the internet has done to writing, folks.

Montgomery Vincent

Oh, so that really was you who jumped into the fray along with the rest of us. I'm glad someone with some credibilty thought that what Wissot wrote was ridiculous. What she said would have been obnoxious in any context. I mean, if she wants to write about it on nerve, that's cool, but don't expect me to take you seriously as a film writer if you're interested in letting me know that you just got drilled by David Barton. Say what you will about people like Denby or Lane, but at least they never pepper their reviews with asides about having their salad tossed by a "famous chef," or getting a reach around from a sinewy Hall of Fame shooting guard for a former eastern conference powerhouse. Wissot should be embarrased, but I have the feeling she's not, that she probably equates her piece with other groundbreaking moments in print, such as Gay Talese's Frank Sinatra Has a Cold or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.


Wow. I'm dedicated to film, but not so dedicated I'd give up hot sex with an attractive person because their views on film didn't align with mine.

Part of me wants to say "pix plz" just to cause trouble.


The "About Me" section in her profile is written in the third person. Just thought I'd mention that.


Sorry, Glenn. That's been the name of my blog for years.

I'm frankly disappointed that all the bickering over Wissot's hot nooner completely overshadowed the true giggler in her post, her claim that she learned to shun artistic self-congratulation FROM JUDITH MALINA.

Tony Dayoub

Sorry Claire, I don't know enough about Malina to get that last joke. I only know her from her role as Grandma in "The Addams Family" (1991).


Claire, I found the line about artistic self-congratulation to be a hoot in of itself, because boy howdy is it never not true. Her profile, etc., reads quite a bit like "Look at me! Look at me! LOOK AT ME!!! HOORAY INTERNET!!!"

I bet she has a MySpace.


Not pretentious enough. How about in French? "Sexe fantastique d'apr├Ęs-midi avec un Bodybuilder chaud."

Claire K.

ooh, and for my part, I'd completely forgotten that she'd been in The Addams Family, so I thank you for reminding me, Tony.


Wait, when did "The House Next Door" become "The House Madam Next Door"? Geez, Seitz leaves and everything goes all Norman Mailer on us...

Tim Lucas

Why not just rename it "Some Ran Coming"?


Actually, Tim, if you think about it, it's even dirtier the way it is now!


Wow, just clicked the link. I knew there was a reason that I'd been visiting the House Next Door a lot less since Seitz left. Whoa, that place has really gone downhill (and I don't say that just because of that ridiculous post).
