When I finished the current issue of Maxim I noticed an intriguing ad on the back cover, the sexy ass Chris Evans posing for Gucci Guilty Black. I’ve been a huge fan of Evans’ since Not Another Teen Movie. I’m so psyched that he has been able to rise to stardom via films like The Avengers.
Luckily the ad lists the official Gucci YouTube channel on the side so I was able to go watch the below commercials starring Chris Evans and Evan Rachel Wood. These are awesome and it’s no wonder, they were directed by Frank Miller (Sin City). The song is by Friendly Fires and Bat For Lashes and is entitled Strangelove Guilty remix.
The official site lists that this fragrance, Gucci Guilty, smells like lemon, mandarin, green leaves, pink pepper, patchouli, cedar, sandalwood and amber.

Early this year I went through a bad breakup. As many do I needed to make a big change at that time. In February I had missemmamm.com contributor and senior stylist/teacher, Hot Donna, give me a vibrant new red do. It didn’t last long because I always go back to blonde but I did feel super sexy in it.
Since the night life sucks where I live and yeah I needed some support from my little sister I went to Baltimore to visit her. I wore this outfit out to the new hot club Voltage on a snowy night. It’s run by a manager of the now defunct but once awesome Hammerjacks.
I combined this braless dress from EdenFantasys with an old handcuff necklace, a metallic bracelet, my once favorite but now torn to shreds tights and some super cute booties that I had just gotten. I remarked that pairing the dress with the necklace let people know “what I’m about”. My sister interrupted with “shows people that you lack mystery”, which I found pretty amusing.
We caught up with some old friends that night and had a ton of fun.

Seven Psychopaths is a comedic crime thriller written and directed by Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). The cast includes Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Tom Waits. To even lightly explain the plot is to rob you of the experience of the film. The simplest way to give you an idea of the chaos that ensues is to say that it involves a writer, psychopaths, dognapping and murder.

Earlier this year I was finally able to watch the film. I didn’t really know what to expect going in, aside from a stellar cast. I thoroughly enjoyed it but was at a loss to write a review. I merely tweeted the below.
Luckily contributor Hot Donna caught the movie this week. She has decided to share her thoughts on it with us below.
Seven Psychopaths is Excellente! It makes me want to rewatch Matchstick Men and Choke. I love Sam Rockwell. He’s both hilarious and nuts. It’s the perfect black comedy with action and a fitting ending. Seven Psychopaths is the best movie I’ve seen in years. I laughed and was frightened at the same time.
This post brought to you by Boar’s Head. All opinions are 100% mine.
I recently had the good fortune to try two certified heart-healthy deli meats via Boar's Head. I tried both the EverRoast Oven Roasted Chicken Breast and the Ovengold Roasted Breast of Turkey. The turkey is preservative free, low in fat and rich in protein. The chicken is seasoned with carrots, celery, onions, garlic and parsley. Each is yummy. However my favorite is definitely the turkey.
I enjoyed my turkey on a sandwich piled high with lettuce and tomato and my chicken in a tomato wrap with some yellow peppers and taco seasoning.
If you enjoy cooking you can make the Ovengold Turkey Spaghetti Squash Tumble, which is just one of Boar's Head's Good-for-your-heart recipes. One serving is comprised of 2.5 oz of Ovengold Roasted Breast of Turkey, 1/2 of a small spaghetti squash, 1/2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 of a large garlic clove (crushed), 1 tbsp fresh basil (chopped), 1/2 tbsp fresh parsely (chopped), 1/2 cup of defrosted peas, 1/2 cup of diced tomatoes and a bit of Boar's Head Parmigiano-Reggiano. This delicious meal is only 305 calories per serving.
Directions (for one serving)
Cut the squash in half lengthwise, then cut each half into equal pieces.
Put the squash i a steamer basket in anoven with water and cook on high to steam until tender (about 15-20 minutes).
Remove the squash strands from the shell, using a fork, and then set them aside.
Heat the oil in a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat.
Add the basil, garlic, parsley and squash and toss lightly to coat.
Add the tomatoes, peas and turkey. Then sprinkle the whole entree lightling with the grated Parmesan cheese.
Boar's Head heart-healthy deli meats can really help you focus on a balanced, heart healthy diet. This is because Boar's Head's certified heart-healthy deli meats are low in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and meat specified limits for sodium. It's recommended that you combine those with veggies, whole grains and low sodium cheeses when chowing down. Add in at least 30 minutes a day of exercise and you will be doing your heart a favor.

The incredibly talented, sexy adult film star James Deen and his PR rep (who is super nice BTW) granted me the following interview via email. I could not be more stoked. I am definitely a Deenager (though not a teenager) not only due to Deen’s acting skills but also his fantastic demeanor and self deprecating blog posts. James has appeared in over 900 porn flicks.
However he’s currently branching out into other areas as well. Mr. Deen is currently one of the producers on a very interesting new steampunk film being funded via Kickstarter. It’s called Cowboys & Engines. The cast includes Walter Koenig and Richard Hatch. The project is being helmed by Bryn Pryer, who is both the writer and director. Definitely check out the below Kickstarter video for the film and then go get involved.
There are so many awesome rewards that you can get for backing this movie. For instance for $20 you can get a digital download when the movie is completed (& more perks) or for $30 you can get that as well as a signed James Dee poster and a sticker from his store. There are so many more packages to choose from that it’s bananas. If you have mad dough pledge $500 and get a prop from the flick, be an extra in the movie for $1,250 or go out on a date with James Deen for 2K (& then let me know how it went as I’m super jealous, xd).
(This interview was conducted via email. James’ answers have not been altered in any way, they are in bold.)
You’re a producer on Cowboys & Engines, do you plan on producing more often in the future?
i have always loved producing. i am currently focusing most of my attention on cowboys and engines so it is hard to plan future career moves, but i would love the chance to produce more.
How instrumental were you in the casting of Cowboys & Engines?
i helped. nothing more. i try to make sure that the director is able to get the exact product they want. i personally think that movies are truly a directors medium. because of this my priority wasn’t what my feelings were about the actors, but what the directors. my job as a producer is to not think as an artist but as a business man.
What are your favorite westerns?
back to the future 2
How did you get into steampunk culture?
i first discovered steampunk on a porn set. they used the style to create a very dark and twisted vibe for the scene. i then started to research and find more of the world. i wouldn’t say i know anything about it, as i don’t want to offend the culture, but i do like the idea of using the aesthetics to accentuate and the ideas of turning fictional creations into reality.
According to the plot of Cowboys & Engines, the characters “Cade and Guinivere set off to save San Francisco from total destruction”. Are you excited about the alternate version of San Fransisco that will be presented in the film?
very much so. the way it is described in the script is pretty impressive and ambitious. it is one of the reason why we are trying to raise 100,000 on kickstarter. the more we have the more detailed we can create our world
Do you consider yourself a bit geeky?
i am nerdy more than geeky. i like gadgets and math and science and learning and the simpsons. the other people involved in the creative process are geeky. they like d&d and battle star galactica, star trek, etc etc. i always wanted to be a geek but i get too caught up in the how to get to the part where you actually get to do anything.
Have you ever attended a scifi convention?
I’ve already backed Cowboys & Engines but for someone who hasn’t, what is the key thing that you want to tell them to get on board?
do you like cool things? then give us a dollar… or 5
