Michael's Musings

Horny For Halloween
Michael Shinafelt
This week is a special edition of my column. In case you haven't figured out that means my focus will be on Halloween this coming Monday, then I have no response to that.

Time to let loose the devil inside!

Did you know there is a line of Halloween costumes out based on the raunchy R-rated movie Sausage Party? You too can dress as a douche and offer yourself and your services up as a treat,

I am the terror that flaps in the night. That is all.

Heidi Klum always rocks the best costumes. Can't wait to see what she comes up with this year. 

No tears please, it’s a waste of good suffering.” - Pinhead, Hellraiser 

How about that clown scare this year?

Someone decided to make Hollywood Great again and smash Donald Trump's star on the Walk of Fame with a sledgehammer the day of Hillary Clinton's Birthday. What a nice Halloween treat, and Happy Birthday Madam President!

If I were a witch, I would cast spells, kill people and stuff...

"Nothing Human Loves Forever" - tag line for my favorite vampire film, The Hunger 

Let's crack open a bottle of wine and Ouija.

My all time favorite horror film is John Carpenter's Halloween. Only scary movie that ever really got under my skin, and, well scared the fuck outta me!

This Halloween I plan on attending the West Hollywood Halloween Carnival. The amount of alcohol consumed there both scares and impresses me.

Their Here, They're Reckless, Get Used To It!

It's been a big week for The Pretty Reckless. Their album Who You Selling for came out this past Friday. The first single off of it Take Me Down is the #1 song on the Billboard Rock Chart this week! Making four number ones for the band in a row! Woot

Frontwoman Taylor Momsen & Guitarist Ben Phillips took time out from their crazy schedule to answer five "quickie" questions for Entertain Me. Get ready to go "Reckless!" 
MS: "Who You Selling For" definitely encompasses a lot of soul blues & rock-n-roll.  Was that an organic direction or a chosen one for the two of you?

TPR: It's always organic.  We don't have any pre conceived notions for the music.  The inspiration of songwriting dictates the direction.  We are slaves to the muse.

MS: You guys co-write all the songs. Give some insight to your writing process.

TPR: It's everything and nothing.  We basically isolate ourselves and live life looking for anything that inspires us.  Writing is an all consuming mistress, it's our favorite thing to do

MS: Do you ever write solo or is it always a collaborative process?

TPR: Sometimes ideas come together, sometimes we bring them to each other, there is no set method to the madness

MS: Why the name The Pretty Reckless?

TPR: Because The Moderately Reckless was taken ;)

MS: If you were stranded in the forest with only three albums to listen to what would you choose?

TPR: The White Album, Abbey Road and Revolver/Rubber Soul by The Beatles.

The Horror: The Hunger

Catherine Deneuve & David Bowie

When I was sixteen it was a very good year. I landed my first job as a teenager ever, and it was my teen dream job. What was it? Working in a movie theater of course! 

It was also the year, what would become my favorite vampire film ever came out, The Hunger. Since I worked there I got to see it for free, and that I did, five times!

Visually and conceptually it was stunning with graphic sexuality and vampire blood letting. Catherine Deneuve was born to play the ultimate ice queen vamp, Miriam Blaylock. David Bowie was the perfect compliment are her rapidly deteriorating decades old lover John Blaylock. Then there's Susan Sarandon as Dr. Sarah Roberts who thinks death is a disease that can be cured, little does she know....

With it's bold bi-sexuality, exploration of life & death and perfectly cast actors, this is one vampire fest blood sucking freaks should not miss!

Only 6,6,6 more days until Halloween

Nasty Woman: Katy Perry

Team Nasty!
Katy Perry & Friends
Yes, Donald Trump, Katy Perry is too a "Nasty Woman." So much so that she hit the the campus of the University Of Las Vegas in support of Hillary "Ms. Clinton" if your nasty to rally the masses for early voting. 

How dirty of her. Katy also showed how fully she supported Clinton by declaring herself nasty by wearing a T-Shirt with a giant red heart with the words "Nasty Woman" in it. Yep, nasty love is all the rage right now. My suspicion is we are going to get four years of it come November 8th.

Personally I'm sold! I'll gladly take it over the pussy grabbing American Racist any day.

Happy Monday and only one more week until Halloween!!!

What Makes U "Say Yes"

Look Into My Eyes & "Say Yes"
Jason Walker
Jason Walker & Tony Moran are "So Happy" to "Say Yes" to #1!!!

Two-time Grammy nominated dance producer Tony Moran and Out Music Award winner Jason Walker are following up “So Happy”, their #1 Billboard hit from this summer, with a celebratory new track for fall, “Say Yes”. Written by Tony Moran and Mike Greenly, the hard-pounding single features another awe-inspiring vocal performance by Jason Walker, along with a superstar collection of remixes and a thrilling new music video by Karl Giant. “Say Yes” is available now on iTunes via

“Tony Moran approached me about doing another track right after we finished recording ‘So Happy’, our song that would climb all the way to #1,” recalls Jason Walker from his New York home. “What else could I do but ‘Say Yes’?”

“Mike and I were inspired to write the song from all the wedding ceremonies we’ve each been attending since the supreme court legalized same-sex marriage,” explains Tony Moran. “It’s made us reflect on the power of saying yes and how that simple three letter word can move mountains, promote progress and change life as we know it.”

“I asked Jason to record the single for us because that magical voice of his exudes power. He’s an incredible talent and someone that I truly believe represents the future of music.”

Moran and Walker re-enlisted videographer Karl Giant, the director of the “So Happy” video to helm "Say Yes" - check it out after the jump!

Saturday Schwing! Kevin Bacon

Kevin Bacon:
The Beginning
Tis the season so you know I had to offer up a healthy serving of bacon, the Kevin sort that is. Remember when he made his film debut in the original Friday The 13th and teased us with his speedo bulge? Then got killed for having sex with a fellow camp counselor? Of course you do.

Kevin has bared his booty in a lot of films most notably Paul Verhoeven's horror/sci-fi thriller Hollow Man where he played an invisible dude who when he became visible, woke up, well naked, lucky film goers. Butt only booty was truly on display.

Oh, butt (pun intended) it gets better. He kept his slab of bacon concealed for a while even though we could see it in his skimpy swimwear, tighty whities and free balling away, he finally released the Kraken aka Penis in Wild Things, one of my favorite sordid tales because of it's darkly comedic tone. Also well because KB looks great totally naked!

The following images and text with a feast of Bacon are all courtesy of the talented and insightful Tye Briggs at Favorite Hunks & Other Things.

Yes because of Tye I can now make your Saturdays & Sundays a total schwing fest! No need to thank me you can just...use your imagination!

Schwing it, schwing it good!

"Who You Selling For"

Don't Even Think About Trying to "Take Me Down"
Taylor Momsen
Photo: Andrew Lipovsky
Life can be so unfair, I have an advance copy of this album and have already given it many a listen, guess what?! It's the fucking bomb!

The Pretty Reckless smashes it! “Take Me Down,” the first single from the album Who You Selling For, has reached #1 on the rock chart, after just 7 short weeks. This milestone marks the fourth consecutive #1 for the band who broke records as the first female-fronted band to have three chart toppers in a row with “Heaven Knows,” “Messed Up World” and “Follow Me Down” (all from 2014’s Going To Hell) - a feat that has not been accomplished since The Pretenders in 1984, over 30 years ago.

The Pretty Reckless’s extraordinary third studio album Who You Selling For is set for release today, October 21. Produced by longtime collaborator Kato Khandwala, Who You Selling For expands the band’s sound to encompass soul, blues and rock and roll. The songs were written by front woman Taylor Momsen and guitarist Ben Phillips. Momsen’s dark lyrics and raw, charismatic vocals are on full display and the band delivers at full intensity with a level of musicianship that raises the bar.

TPR hits the road this week in support of the album, hitting major markets in the US and wrapping on December 6th in Los Angeles.
