Didn’t I JUST make up some lame excuse for not posting in over a week?
OK, well here’s another: Last week was Thanksgiving here in the good ol’ U.S., and I ended up taking the whole week off from work. And if I’m home, I’m almost NEVER blogging. My free time is usually filled up with orgies and fetish conventions.
You are all watching American Horror Story, right?
If you aren’t, then you’re really doing yourself a disservice. While I felt that last season started off good and creepy, it quickly tumbled downhill into the silly and unbelievable.
THIS season, however……. Holy Schniekies!
This season, sub-named “Asylum”, has been outstanding! From the opening credits, right on through to the end, I have been thoroughly creeped out and entertained each week.
One of the most unnerving characters on the show is Pepper, lovingly called “Pepper the Pinhead”. I honestly can’t see where the nickname came from.
After seeing a few episodes with Pepper, I had no doubt in my mind that the producers had actually cast someone with some kind of impairment in the role. They did something similar last season by casting a girl with Down Syndrome as one of the leads.
So, you can imagine my surprise when Earlsie emailed me a week ago to show me that Pepper, whose real name is Naomi Grossman, is actually NOT disabled. She just goes thru 3 hours of prosthetics each week to transform into Pepper!
Naomi ACTUALLY looks like this:
How crazy is that?
I have to admit that now I’m quite conflicted, because every time that I now see Pepper on screen, I can’t help but think that there is a chick under all that who I wouldn’t mind banging.
It’s leaving me all conflicted and feeling dirty. It’s kinda the same feeling I’d imaging I’d get if one day I thought my grandma was hot.
We’ve all been THERE, right guys?
Just me, then? Ok.
Anyway, the point I am trying to make here is that the makeup people on AHS deserve a fucking Emmy for what they are doing on that show.
Seriously, George Lucas should bend over and take one of those fake pinhead scalps right up the ass because Pepper’s makeup looks ten thousand times more authentic than the bazillion dollars Lucas spent on those dopey-looking characters in the Star Wars sequels.
