Scot Nery’s Boobie Trap is out of his mind

13996174_1780110952272374_8552191304054819361_o

LA is chock full of beautiful theaters, but the one to be at on Wednesday nights is the famous Fais Do-Do Ballroom. It’s not because of the rich history that oozes from its architectural pores – it’s because that’s where Scot Nery will be. And when you go to his show, don’t be surprised if he greets you at the door and offers you a piece of cake. After all, you’re stepping into an entertaining party of his design.  

When the show begins, Scot explains the 3 rules that each of his performers must live by:

 

While on stage, anything goes but the act must not be longer than 4 minutesAt the 3 minute mark, a yellow warning light will be triggered as a reminder to wrap things upIf 4 minutes are exceeded, Scot will literally run onto the stage and boot the performer as the house band plays the Boobie Trap theme-song

 

Every show that Scot puts on is completely different from the last and his emceeing style is ridiculously energetic as he introduces the evening’s 14+ acts.

At times Scot may feel that the energy isn't quite up to his standards and he'll take matters into his own hands by tumbling, contorting his body, doing one-handed pushups and lovingly pelting the audience with heavily salted snack treats.

While on stage, he's like a big happy kid who’s doing exactly what he's always wanted to do and his show is as if the Little Rascal’s grew up, stayed together and became hilarious adults. Read the rest

Jaelyn the Alien definitely does not want to see your penis

Jaelyn the Alien, aka Baby J, says:

"So this music video was inspired by a numerous amount of recent events that include random people on the internet (meaning instagram,twitter and SNAPCHAT users) sending me pictures/nudes of their penises. Whether that is them jacking off or just the classic penis picture. This video is my response to the people who send me their revealing photographs.

Georgia gas-station DVDs, like a scene from a racialized, porny Repo Man

Yes, they made the "Asian" porn yellow -- apparently this is a pretty common sight in Georgia gas-stations, though the proliferation of network connections in big rigs will surely cut into that market (and create some serious potential for mischief). Read the rest
