SUPER SIZE ME

Poffy The Cucumber

Eat It To Death. Okay okay, I got a funny story for you – but the kids have to leave the room…When I was 23, I convinced my young girlfriend to teach her girlfriend how to – shall we say – “eat” me. As immoral, boastful and enviably man-tastic as that may sound, the punchline is: I coerced them into … Read More

AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM

THE U.S. VS JOHN LENNON

Poffy The Cucumber

Working Class Hero. David Leaf’s and John Scheinfeld’s THE U.S. VS. JOHN LENNON is an insular little diversion, showcasing Lennon’s post-Beatles period when his activist voice made the United States government tremble in its widdle booties. Taking a stand against the Viet Nam War (back in the day when “peacenik” was not a four-letter word), allying with activists Abbie Hoffman, … Read More

SICKO

TREKKIES 2

Poffy The Cucumber

Where Girlfriends Fear To Tread. You need not watch TREKKIES (1997) to understand TREKKIES 2. No sense in hurting your intelligence lobe twice in the same area. Where TREKKIES examined the extreme depths American Star Trek fanatics plumb in their quest to creep out their more sane human counterparts, TREKKIES 2 does the same thing abroad. And what a broad. … Read More

FAHRENHEIT 9/11

Poffy The Cucumber

My Fellow Americans (er…kind of), One part of me wants to live the peaceable life, wallowing in my hobbit hole, unmindful of the B-29 Superfortresses amassing off the Normandy Coast, staring out at the stars and asserting that Clint Eastwood is the greatest example of Manhood in our century, whilst another side of me wants to shake the shoulders and … Read More
