Hugh Hefner, Playboy Founder, Dies at 91

Hugh Hefner, Playboy Founder, Dies at 91
Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner died on Wednesday at the Playboy Mansion in the Holmby Hills neighborhood of West Los Angeles. He was 91.

The media mogul’s influence went far beyond publishing — he created the sexual revolution nearly single-handedly (with some help from the advent of the birth control pill and the rise of feminism).

After starting the status quo-shattering Playboy magazine in 1953, Hefner went on to launch TV and film companies, finance documentaries, and preside over the Hollywood social scene from his bubbling Jacuzzi at the mansion, a frequent location for industry events. The mansion, which had became somewhat run-down, was sold in 2016, but the terms of the sale specified that he was allowed to live there until his death.

He is survived by his wife, Crystal, and four grown children: Christie, who served as CEO of Playboy Enterprise for more than 20 years, David, Marston, and Cooper, who currently serves as Chief Creative Officer at the

Drive-In Dust Offs: Of Unknown Origin (1983)

  • DailyDead
Man versus Nature, Man versus Beast, Man versus Food; all mythical in status to varying degrees and most represented on the silver screen. Of Unknown Origin (1983) tackles the middle myth with a tongue firmly planted in its giant rat infested cheek and is an obsessive tour through a domestic hellscape.

Released in November by Warner Brothers, and produced in conjunction with some of that glorious Canadian tax shelter money (you’re welcome, eh), Of Unknown Origin only made back a quarter of its $4 million budget. It didn’t wow the critics either, although Peter Weller (Robocop) was singled out for his wry performance as the put upon vermin victim.

Bart Hughes (Weller) has it all; the perfect wife (Shannon Tweed, in her feature film debut) and son, a high paying job, and a beautiful brownstone in New York. (Read: Montreal. Tax coin. Beauty.) Wife and child head off for a

Fifty Shades vs The Mid 90s Erotic TV Movie

Tom Jolliffe on Fifty Shades vs the Mid-90s Erotic TV movie…

Before you wonder, no Asylum haven’t announced their next monster mashup film. In case you were living under a rock in the past five years, a pop-cultural phenomenon called Fifty Shades of Grey stood to attention (eh thank you). A piece of internet fan fiction suddenly rode the crest of a wave, spawned a book release (plus subsequent follow ups) and then ultimately the Hollywood film treatment. To call the books artistic would be wide of the mark. They’re horribly written, trashy, and the sort of Waterstone’s bargain bin material that only the most bored housewife would have read 20 years ago, but somehow post millennium is an absolute must-read. For many it can be read as a comedy. It oozes cheese. It’s the most hokey hokum you can imagine.

That brings us to the films.

This article originally appeared on EW.com.

Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration will take place Jan. 20 in Washington, D.C., but so far, the president-elect has had some difficulty assembling a star-powered lineup for the ceremony. Over the last month or so, more and more musicians have publicly declined to perform — even those who Trump has praised or have a previous relationship with the president-elect.

In preparation for the inauguration, here’s a handy list of everyone who won’t perform for the president-elect.

Andrea Bocelli

The classical singer was one of the first names to emerge as an inauguration performer.

Harker’s Hits: new on DVD/Blu-ray!
This week delivers up a wealth of joy. Cannibal Women! Zombies! Curses! Sinful Dwarfs! Doctor Who! So let’s dive in and see just how we’re going to spend our week!

Cannibal Women In The Avocado Jungle Of Death

With a title like that, do you even need to know more? Yeah? Well, it stars 1982 Playboy Playmate of the Year Shannon Tweed. And Adrienne Barbeau from Swamp Thing and Creepshow. (Fun Fact: Adrienne Barbeau played Rizzo in the original Broadway production of Grease! And got a Tony nom for it! What!) And Bill Maher, before he got all respectable with his own HBO show and all. To avoid an avocado shortage, an anthropology professor (Tweed!) heads into the avocado jungle of Southern California to confront the man-eating Piranha Women tribe. How the cannibals are affecting the avocado crops is anyone’s guess. But, hey, I live in SoCal, and

‘Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death’ Blu-ray Review (88 Films)

Stars: Shannon Tweed, Bill Maher, Adrienne Barbeau, Karen M. Waldron | Written and Directed by J.F. Lawton

The men want their avocados; the evil feminist cannibal piranha women have control of the avocado jungle, what will we do? That’s right; send Shannon Tweed in to save the day. If you think that’s corny then you will totally understand what Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death is aiming for…

The government (the evil Men) hire a prominent feminist lecturer from a university to venture into the Avocado Jungle (somewhere in California from what I can gather) to mediate with the cannibal women who live there. Offering a reservation condo complex in Malibu in return of the jungle they hope to placate the feministic women and get to the fruit which is dangerously low in stock.

Model Sophie Tweed-Simmons On Wellness and Finding Her Body Confidence: 'The Gym Used to Be a Punishment for What I Ate'
When it comes to wellness and finding her confidence as a model in the plus-size industry, Sophie Tweed-Simmons has got it all figured out. But the daughter of rock star Gene Simmons and model Shannon Tweed, who identifies as an "in-between" model, rather than plus-size, says it took her a while to find what type of diet and exercise worked for her. "The gym used to be a punishment for what I ate," she told New York Magazine. "That's hard on your mental wellness, and people forget about the mental aspects of your health, but you can't punish yourself for indulging.
