Noir Saturday: The Tattotted Stranger

Here’s tonight’s offering, The Tattotted Stranger.

tat

The Tattooed Stranger is a 1950 American crime film noir shot on location in New York City, directed by Edward Montagne, and starring John Miles, Patricia Barry, Walter Kinsella and Frank Tweddell. The picture was one of the first films featuring Jack Lord, who went on to star in the television series Hawaii Five-O. It was John Miles’ final film appearance.

A man strolling in Central Park finds a ladies’ glove on the dog walk. He spots a woman reclining in a nearby sedan and approaches to ask if it belongs to her. The problem is she can’t answer — she’s dead of a shotgun blast to the gut. The shocked man blares away with the car’s horn to attract the nearest cop (one is actually nearby). Thus begins 19050’s The Tattooed Stranger, a low budget (but shot on location) police procedural that comes two years on the heels of the incredibly successful The Naked City. Although the film is limited in some ways by its ultra-low budget, it remains of interest today because of its honest and unflinching depiction the New York City slums, and the matter-of-fact cynicism of the cops who work them.

Check it out tonight @ 11PM on TCM CST or 9AM CST on Sunday. Enjoy and check out the trailer.

Erotic Fridays: Sexy, thy name is Shakespeare

856120258_87375401ee_z

 

 

Sonnet 1

From fairest creatures we desire increase,

That thereby beauty’s rose might never die,

But as the riper should by time decease,

His tender heir might bear his memory;

But thou, contracted to thine own bright eyes,

Feed’st thy light’s flame with self-substantial fuel,

Making a famine where abundance lies,

Thyself thy foe, to thy sweet self too cruel.

Thou that art now the world’s fresh ornament

And only herald to the gaudy spring

Within thine own bud buriest thy content,

And, tender churl, mak’st waste in niggarding.

Pity the world, or else this glutton be,

To eat the world’s due, by the grave and thee.

Korean Men: Chasing Foreign Ass

You know what makes me want to toss my cookies; Korean men that are interested in interracial relationships. Not in the way you are thinking; these fuckers are creepy! Yep, I know, Black Barbie being all racist again, but hear me out. I was under the impression that Korean men tend to be shy. Yes, I’m showing my racist horns yet again. Then there are some Koreans who have issues with “ all this chocolate.” Well, let’s just put that rumor to bed! Korean men are like any other race, color, and creed man on the planet. Sober, they’ll pretty much mind their manners. Baby, drunk Korean men; WHOLE. NOTHER. LEVEL!!!   You hear me! These drunk fuckers are chatty and handsy.

There is something about soju that brings the freaks out. By day no English, but by night, English scholars! The freaks really do come out at night! I often wonder if these same men would say what they say to me to a Korean girl. If not, then why the hell do they think it’s okay to say it to me? Do I look like the practice, girl? Do I look easy? Do they think that foreign women morally corrupt and just got to have it all the time? I mean do they really think we’re sluts? Are we sluts? I personally think these drunken men have watched too much Asian porn and think this how you approach foreign women. I mean I’ve been out and about, drinking minding my own business and I’ve been hit with some of the following:

“I come to your house, yes?”

“You hot, do you like the sex?”

“You like kiss?”

“Let’s touch.”

“Play some game?”

“Do you like the penis?”

Yeah, that last one threw me. I choked on my drink in the bar when this dude came up to me and said that.   I really wanted to say “Penis in general or yours?” Like, dude why the hell are you talking to me? I mean, I know I look good, but damn, that’s not an invitation! You and I both know damn well you’d never say that shit sober or even in the daytime. However, in a bar and you beyond shitfaced, it’s okay? Bitch, get out of here! I mean are you trying to win Pervert of the Year??

In Korea Land, it can be hard to know if a guy is interested in you, or your “exoticness.” How they approach me is how I judge them. Being Korea, that approach can be a little different. There are so many factors to consider. The decision on how they approach you can be based on their age, your age, who they are with, who you are with, your race, and my personal favorite, how drunk the both of you are. So being guarded is the best way to go.   I’m not here playing Dongs All Over the World; trying to collect them all. Unless he’s hot; and I never, never, NEVER, get a hot guy rolling up on me. Where those sexy bastards at? Now THAT will get a “Why yes! I do like the penis!” “ Your bed or mine?”
