Hardcore rap provocateur Timothy Blair, a.k.a. Tim Dog (most famous for his Nwa diss track “Fuck Compton” and work with Ultramagnetic MCs) reportedly died back in February from complications related to diabetes. But a growing stream of evidence has begun to suggest that, actually, Tim Dog faked his death in an attempt to avoid paying women he’d scammed into financially supporting a comeback album he never intended to make. Last week, Esther Pilgrim, one of the victims of Tim Dog’s scamming, claimed he’d been faking his death to escape paying her the $19,000 required »
*Editor’s note: For a good ‘welcome to the team’ kind of trial by fire, I sent our newest contributor, Graham, to sit down and interview director/actor Eli Roth regarding his upcoming film Aftershock, which he stars in and co-wrote with the film’s director Nicolas Lopez. Roth was nice enough to talk about his experience on the film, along with Hostel, and his upcoming return to the director’s chair, The Green Inferno. Read on!
How does it feel for you to go from dreaming of wanting to be a filmmaker your whole life and then eventually growing up to not only be that and succeed at it, but to also now be known as an actor in the process?

If we created a drinking game for each time I cried big, sloppy tears during this finale of Last Tango in Halifax, let’s just say that we’d all be shitfaced halfway through. I started off watching this series thinking it was a cute little show about some oldies falling in love; I’ve finished it believing it’s some of the finest television I’ve seen, anywhere, ever.
We left off last time in a bit of a mess: a drunk, grieving John had blurted out Caroline’s lesbianism to the entire family, upsetting Celia in particular. At the end of her birthday dinner, Caroline ended up in the hospital waiting on Judith, who took a drunken, bloody tumble at her house; knowing little of the storm that was brewing all around her as Celia and Alan drove over from Halifax in the dark. »
My First R-rated Movie Or…
How I Became The 007 Of Covert Forbidden Film Viewing
By Alex Simon
For those of us who grew up in the suburbs in the pre-home video, pre-Internet and pre-cable TV 1970s and early ‘80s, there were few dangerous pleasures as heady as sneaking into an R-rated movie at the local multiplex. The multiplex cinema was a ‘70s phenomenon that made regulating children’s viewing habits infinitely more difficult than the old days of stand-alone, single screen theaters. Ironically, the new freedom that filmmakers enjoyed with the advent of the MPAA rating system in late 1968 was almost in perfect synch with the rise of multi-screen cinemas. Some things do happen for a reason.
You never forget your first...
My first R-rated film was during Thanksgiving of 1976. We were visiting my dad’s family in Birmingham, Alabama and the men adjourned after dinner to go see Two Minute Warning, »

Bronx rapper Tim Dog, aka Timothy Blair, has died of a seizure caused by complications related to diabetes. He was 46. Though he was originally affiliated with groups like Ultramagnetic MCs and Krs-One’s Boogie Down Productions, Dog was best known musically for “Fuck Compton,” a track from his 1991 solo debut Penicillin On Wax. “Fuck Compton” dissed the burgeoning West Coast gangsta scene in general and N.W.A. in particular, featuring shots at Dr. Dre, Eazy E, and Ice Cube.
