Evan Only Knows

Due to Popular Demand from me to myself, I'm beginning a new feature here at Merv at the Movies: my patented brand of sex advice, packaged in my patented sex advice column format! Every Goddamn Time I feel like it, I'll answer a question submitted to me by you, the readers. I can be reached at all the usual places, including, but not limited to, the comments section. As a bonus, each time I will also answer a follow-up pop culture question. Sound fun? Yeah. That's what I thought, too.

Today's question comes to us from E., that's too obvious, let's say Evan McB. Yeah. I mean...uh, oh fudge it I wrote this.

Dear Evan,

My love life is satisfying to both me and my partner, but there always seems to be the need to "top" our previous efforts, which is quickly wearing me down and out. What can I do to keep our relations fresh and fun without killing me?

Thoughtful In Regards to Erection Dues

P.S. What's that song they're using in the new "Nick at Nite" spots? That song rocks.


Whatever you do, don't yawn during sex. That can get you in some real trouble, real quick.

Besides that, might I suggest bringing in another man? It's a little-known fact that the reason so many women despise or give little thought to sexual intercourse is an issue of "natural balance": for, each sexually liberated woman who enjoys sexual contact has the libido to easily handle five regular male sexual partners! Staggering statistical data, but true.

In regards to your bonus pop culture question, the song in question is "Hello Again," by the Cars, from their album, Heartbreak City. This is not to be confused with the tracks of the same name by Hoobastank, Intwine, Howard Carpendale, Neil Diamond, or Lostprophets.

The Pen 15 Club

I can't believe she's so thrilled about this. No, wait. I totally can. Because the Pen 15 club rocks your socks into a box.

Nick and I saw Constantine.

It's amazing, because this is exactly what the movie is like. So that's how it worked out for me. The end.

P.S. you should buy this movie here's a link!

Yeah, let me know how that works out for you.

From an interview with Keanu Reeves regarding his upcoming film, Constantine:

"No, but it's a character just as how it exists in the graphic novel, so I would love to play him again. Who knows? I mean, February 18th, probably by the 30th we'll know."

Length: One Dozen Seconds

I met Michael Chabon today. We discussed the Legion of Super-Heroes at some length.

Superman V: The Quest to be Boring as Hell

Important issues at all times tear at the fabric of my very being.

Pauly Shore is Dead

It takes meta to a place meta has never been (Pauly Shore's career). When Mario Lopez showed up, I realized that this was le cinema verité.
