Shameless self-promotion alert! I will be a guest on the The World Famous Frank Show tomorrow at approximately 7:30 a.m. I will be discussing the Weekly's 100 Essential Dishes list with the fellas, and hopefully talking Frank out of the drive through bit.
If anyone is awake at that hour, considering the whole city will be celebrating our Sweet 16 Victory (or god forbid, drowning our sorrows of a loss), tune in and catch my ever so charming nervous sta-sta-stutter and constant stream of "umms" and "uhhs".
In the spirit of love and commercial giveaways, the Weekly is getting a big box of condoms to share with our faithful Rangers. We are giving away one dozen limited edition endangered-species condoms. Your hippie daddy wishes he had these Jimmys.
These condoms are like exclusive San Diego Comic-Con Doctor Who toys, but they are worth more out of the packaging.
We haven't had a condom giveaway since 2010, so who knows when you will have the opportunity to do this again. You can win one by following us on Twitter and send an email to email@example.com with your twitter handle in the subject line.
Good luck, consciousness lovers.
Legendary erotica photographer Eric Kroll has curated a special Valentine's Day show at the new Exploded View Gallery/MicroCinema.
You won't see any of Kroll's work, although the photographer himself will be on hand for the opening of Unobtainable on Friday night. Instead, you'll find pieces from a collection of photos of women with long hair, painstakingly assembled by one of Kroll's New York City friends who "just had a jones for women's hair."
The show includes photographs, collages made from comics and Hollywood stills and a film of long-haired women shot in Washington Square Park and Coney Island, according Kroll.
"Arthur's obsession with women's hair is a form of love and it's Valentine's Day," Kroll tells The Range. "I wanted to broaden the sense of love because Arthur sees things uniquely and in his work, his obsession makes his work artful. It's a different way of looking at love."
Thy Odd Birds will be performing and there will be all manner of fun, so stop on by anytime after 7:30 at Exploded View, 197 E. Toole Ave. Admission is just $5. If you can't make it Friday night, the show will continue through Sunday, Feb. 16. For more info, call 520-366-1573.
Here's Kroll's story behind the show:
Arthur never tried to make art. Nor was he a photographer. Yet some of his photographs in Washington Square park make me think of Cindy Sherman’s early cinema stills or Walker Evans in Cuba in the 1940’s or Robert Frank’s The Americas.
The smartphone-based matchmaking app known as Tinder has its fair share of both proponents (i.e., those who've scored a hookup or 12 out of it) and critics (including those who rack up nothing but "nopes" from other users, as well as prudes in general), but there's no denying its popularity since some bros from USC came up with it.
It's something we here at Weekly World Central have attempted to chronicle from a local standpoint, though our attempts to do so didn't go so well.
But Tinder seems to have found itself a gold mine of willing participants, so to speak, in the form of the young, strapping and (apparently) uninhibited athletes living in the Olympic Village at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
According to US Weekly — by far the gold standard of Olympic coverage and hookup news — the use of Tinder is so rampant among athletes it's been described as "next level" by the likes of Jamie Anderson, the recently crowned (and quite hot) gold medalist in women's slopestyle snowboarding.
This shouldn't really be a surprise, considering the stories that come out of the Olympic villages every two years about the abundant supply of condoms available to athletes looking for pre-event stress relief or post-competition celebration. Heck, during the Summer Games in London in 2012 there were event reports of "rogue condoms" that weren't officially sanctioned because they were branded by non-approved companies ... like the awesomely named Kangaroo Condoms for the "gland down under."
All of this leaves one question: do Olympic athletes rate each other's ... performance on a scale of 1 to 10, or is it on a medal system? And, if the latter, what rates a bronze-medal effort?
There's another adult store popping up in Midtown Tucson. Le Boutique Erotica will open its doors tomorrow, and will be conveniently next to Ten's Showclub on the corner of East Speedway and North Rosemont Blvd. James Caddell, store manager, says that Le Boutique Erotica will be the biggest Corset dealer in Arizona and it's the "cheapest adult store in town." Caddell, 49, says that the shop won't carry any toys, but there will be over 700 different corset styles to choose from.
Caddell says he owned an adult clothing store in the past, but he doesn't like talking about it. Maybe he didn't want to talk about James's Boutique that was located on 4380 Speedway Blvd. "This isn't my first rodeo," James said.
Caddell says the shop will have an array of stripper wear, lingerie, belly dancing outfits, creative costumes, jewelry, perfume and heels. "We will have a little bit of everything," Caddell said. According to Caddell, the in-store hair salon is expected to open with the next few weeks. He also says they are waiting for the sign that was supposed to be completed months ago.

Vin Diesel decided to post a Facebook video of himself dancing, crotch grabbing and singing along to Beyonce's Drunk In Love and Katy Perry's Dark Horse.
So this is what the Iron Giant does when he's not stealing cars and blowing things up on the big screen. Apparently, Diesel was home alone and must have been bored to tears.
The secret is out: Everyone stares.
Maybe not everyone. Some are more obvious than others. I have been guilty for staring at the sun too long. Maybe that's why I'm so tanned.
Someone created a large crotch cam, rode the subway in spread eagle position, so he or she can bait women to stare directly at the recording camera. This was done to prove that women stare just as much as men do. I don't think this proves anything, and I'm sure there's a point to be made here. But I'll leave that up to you in the comments section.
There is little information about who or where this was made. You can thank the folks at reddit for finding this one.
