  1. Sure I could agree with you, but then we'd BOTH be wrong. says:

    nice picks!

  2. Jabberkaty says:

    Aaah! Scary doctor….

  3. Marshfield says:

    hot, depressing, gross, and unspeakable

  4. innout3x3 says:

    I vote for abyoung01. I love the capture of the smoke trail. Her knees kinda pop out of nowhere, which is a little disturbing.

  5. stevejust says:

    What’s the deal with cigarettes on consumerist?

    They’re the only product which, if used as designed and intended, they will kill you. That’s like the epitome of… something. I’ll let you decide.

    Maybe the doctor is covered in the blood of a lung cancer patient?

    But yes, I can still appreciate crouching smoker #1.

  6. Canino says:

    Hot chick, abandoned hotel, zombie doctor, eccentric wierdo – all the makings of a great B horror flick.

  7. CFinWV says:

    Pretty girl… or a bunch of dudes and landscapes. I just don’t know which to pick! It’s a shame she has a cig though, kinda ruins it even if the curly smoke looks neat.

  8. kmckean says:

    So here’s the plot of that movie: an eccentric, Santa-obsessed, alcoholic bazillionaire (Joey & Jonathan), invites five total strangers, including sexy but currently out of work actress Abyoung01, to his haunted motel at the crossroads on Christmas Eve. He even flies them all in (Jet blue at JFK) and has limos escort them to the remote hideaway in the Catskills. All they have to do is last out the night at the Crossroads Motel, and any of the five who do so, and join Joey for breakfast at the nearby diner the next morning, walk away with a cool $10M. Unbeknownst to our down-on-their-luck five, however, is the fact that Joey’s evil alter ego Jbuck lurks by the ice machine. What happens next?

  9. rockasocky says:

    That woman is “hot” or “pretty”? Her? …..Really?

    Maybe it’s the Mean Girl in me, but all I can see are her huge bushy eyebrows framing and emphasizing her freakishly sunken eyelids, which are half closed over her semi-cockeyed stoner glaze. And her nose is just weird.


  10. Smashville says:

    Can I take her home? That makes up for the Black Friday memorial…

  11. Morticia says:

    Apparently,so I’ve been told, holding a cigarette makes you look cool, sexy and sophisticated. But take away the cigarette and replace it with a wad of toilet tissue and she looks like she is taking a (strained) potty break on the side of the road.
