LAist: The Daily Show gets nude and gold

Thursday, January 05, 2006

When I heard that the Daily Show was going to get nude, I was quite happy to hear the news. Problem with such news is, its not often quite correct.

The story is really in reference to Jon Stewart's selection as host of this year's Oscars. The nude in this story is the Oscar itself -- only its not exactly a nude as all the right bits are not in all the right places.

Fri, Sept 23, 2005 - Should nude photographs be considered art or pornography?

"Nude photography is, in my opinion, pornography. From a moral point of view, I think that the naked human body, portrayed in a photograph, incites lust -- which is condemned expressly in the Bible (I John 2:16). The human body is beautiful; it is a work of art in its own right. But the body does not need to be displayed nude to show its magnificence. More...

Some may have called it monkeying around, but school officials didn't find the stunt amusing. A 17-year-old student was arrested Monday after streaking through his high school wearing only a gorilla mask and outrunning the school principal. Union Springs High School Principal Kimberle Ward — who said she runs three to five miles a day — couldn't catch the fleeing student, but she was able to help police identify the teen after watching a hallway surveillance camera video and interviewing students.

In regards to your (opinion) about the "octogenarian nudist who found himself in jail" (Doug McMurdo, "Recap of stories that never made the news, PVT Sept. 2) as a naturist for 15 years I can assure you that this man is in no way a nudist. He is nothing short of an exhibitionist, perhaps fetishist, who likes showing his genitals to women and children. More...

Bill Schroer doesn't wear blue jeans and work shoes when he works in his garden. He doesn't wear gloves or a hat. In fact, Schroer wears nothing at all. And the 56-year-old likes to encourage the rest of us to become nude gardeners, too. Schroer, you see, is a confirmed, enthusiastic "naturist" who has decided, with his fellow members of the board of the Naturist Action Committee, that nudism no longer should be kept low profile.

The Man has burned, the camps are coming down and the RVs are rolling out. After more than a week in the desert, the 35,000 or so who gathered in this sprawling city beneath the sun are heading home, tired and dusty and reflecting on their time on the playa. For some, it was a week to party like never before. For others, it was a time to view artwork so massive, or outlandish, that it simply can't be shown anywhere else. More...

Thu, Aug 25, 2005 - Prudishness is one thing; censorship quite another

Europe's light and easygoing approach to sex and nudity can provide some shocking moments for U.S. travelers: • On a recent trip, my wife and I had to take the TV out of our children's hotel room, as the porn stations were free and available, going at it right there between Euro-sports and MTV. • In Munich, workers take a summer lunch break in their Central Park. They lay out a blanket, fold their power suits neatly, and sunbathe fully nude, oblivious to wide-eyed American tourists passing by. More...

Thu, Aug 25, 2005 - Clothing optional when beating heat

To me, the outdoors involves weather. We often complain that it is too cold or too hot, not the optimum “just right” made famous by that little darling, Goldilocks. But one of the simple pleasures of life is enjoying each day of each season for what it presents to us. Our modern society has become accustomed to a static temperature, usually in the range of 72 to 78 degrees. More...

A controversial anti-nudity ordinance passed after the 2004 Mardi Gras riots could come off the books Tuesday when the San Luis Obispo City Council reviews it.

Under the ordinance, flashers face a $100 fine. Council members could opt to keep the law as it is now, scrap it or limit it to the rowdy Mardi Gras season. More...

Sat, Aug 11, 2005 - You can leave your hat on

A man squirts a puddle of suntan lotion, rubs his palms together and goes to work on the Rubenesque calves of the 50-something blond. Her face goes all dreamy as the suntanned hands of this 30-something Javier, Marco or Philippe knead that soft spot behind the knee. Magic fingers inch up the fleshy thigh that jiggles, wiggles and squiggles. He reaches the border where the bathing suit should be, but there's no bathing suit. More...
