Apparently this is news

I saw a report that the producer of Girls went on a tirade when asked about nudity on his show.

Hey, nudity. That's always good for a laugh. So, I clicked the link and read the story. When I was done, I knew less than I did when I started.

First, what's Girls? I mean, I know what girls are; I've even helped produce one. But, apparently, Girls is a TV show on HBO. Now, if I had cable, maybe I'd know more about what's going on. But I'm kinda thinking not. I used to have cable, but didn't subscribe to HBO. And, a long time ago, when I did subscribe to HBO, I found that I rarely watched it, which is why I dropped HBO. And, later, dropped cable.

But, here's what I can tell you. It's a TV show on HBO. That's pretty much it.

I looked into it a little bit, and best as I can tell, it's set in the largest melting pot of America and is about four white, heterosexual women. Like Sex in the City, but not because, well, it's just not. Lena Dunham is the star.

I know, "who is Lena Dunham?" I don't know. Some liberal feminist chick who who wants to promote diversity and same-sex marriage by starring in a show about four white, heterosexual women. And, she apparently walks around naked in the TV show a lot. Having never seen the show, I can't vouch for this. But, apparently, she walks around enough for a reporter to ask about it and the producer to go nuts about the question.

Apparently, seeing Lena Dunham naked is enough to cause people to want to watch the show. Which is silly, because the Internet is crawling with pictures of Lena Dunham naked. No, I'm not gonna give you a link. If you know how to use The Google, though, you won't have any problem. But, let me offer this warning: those pictures of Lena Dunham naked? They look like Lena Dunham. Only without clothes.

You have been warned.

Anyway, she's apparently somebody, and when someone else gets his panties in a wad about a question about her, it's news.

It's days like these when I'm searching the skies, hoping to see a meteor headed this way.

  1. Basil, you're searching the skies in vain.

    No self-respecting sweet meteor of death is gonna smack into any planet with a nekkid Lena Dunham running around on it.

    It might end up getting Phat Gurl cooties or something even worse.

  2. Here's all you need to know about Lena Dunham's nudity:

    When you Google her name, her nude pictures are NOT the first items that Google Image search returns.

  3. Perhaps they named the show "Girls" because they were afraid that if they didn't...people wouldn't be so sure.

    Didn't Les help discover her ancestry? http://www.nukingpolitics.com/2013/03/matter-of-fact-its-all-dark.html

  5. "No, I’m not gonna give you a link."

    You are a true humanitarian - and to animals too!

  6. With or without clothes, Lena Dunham is not an attractive woman.

  7. From the linked article:
    "...Apatow said the nudity on the show, which was renewed during the panel, is a function of the lives they believe the characters lead..."

    Characters don't lead lives - they're imaginary. You aren't making a documentary, Judd.

    "... he credited Dunham’s courage to shed it all in the name of authenticity."

    said the fully dressed, and therefore unauthentic, Apatow.

  10. If Lena Dunham is so "empowered" why does she feel she has to walk around naked on her show? It's not to turn people on, that's for sure. (blech)

    We cover what we respect. Apparently, Lena Dunham does not respect her body. (If I had her body, I might feel the same way)

  11. Oh, Janeane! Just reading you comments makes me wet.

  12. Lena Dunham?? Isn't that Obama's mother? She's old and dead, why would they show her naked?

  13. Why did I have to look?!?!

  14. Googling her name can lower your IQ two points.
    Finding pictures of her naked can result in brain damage and/or blindness.
    Blindness, with a naked picture of Lena Dunham having been the last thing you saw before you went blind is too depressing to even contemplate and may lead to justifiable suicide.

  15. Now if they got an actress who was basically a young Farrah Fawcett clone, I still might not watch the show, but no matter which way I ended up deciding, my decision would be backed by exhaustive research!
