From the Blogfinger Department of Fake News…Paul  Goldfinger,  Editor Blogfinger.net


The editors at Blogfinger are happy to announce that they will sponsor the 2nd Annual WCT International Photo Competition.  The First Annual was held last year in Vegas, but, because what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, the news never got out.

However soon it will be short-shorts season and then, hot on its tail, will be the thong season on the  OG Beach, which was recently chosen as one of the ten top beaches in the world for world class tushes.

Some years ago, Blogfinger was selected to be the official thong counter on the OG beach. That summer, there was only one, and that was on a dude. But that was also about 10 years ago, so get out your cameras and keep those eyes wide open.

You may submit more than one photo, and it could be a man, a woman, or something else.  But no fake bottoms are permitted for our Fake News contest.

We will award the photo prizes based on the quality of the subject matter and photographic excellence.  But, under no circumstances, will we allow objectification of any gender. We are celebrating the art of the tush, as pioneered by Pablo Picasso, Botticelli, Robert Mapplethorpe, Manet, Edward Weston and many other great artists who loved to photograph or sculpt, or paint glorious rear ends.

And many of the world’s most famous celebrities achieved fame when images of their bottoms were seen throughout the world, and that includes Marilyn Monroe,  Josephine Baker, Lady Gaga,  Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian, Kate Hudson (whose mom also had a spectacular tush), and Pamela Anderson.  And let’s not forget Justin Bieber and Hulk Hogan’s son.

In 2012, a student project from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts Film School found its way to Ocean Grove where they were looking for a place to film some period interior scenes.  This house on Main Avenue was perfect.  We asked Marlee Roberts  (above left), the producer, if we could screen the finished project in Ocean Grove, and that inquiry eventually led to the First Annual Blogfinger Film Festival in the Grove.  We showed only student film shorts, and there was a second edition in 2013.  Unfortunately we could not continue due to lack of sufficient interest in town.  We coulda been a contender.

Marlee Roberts has continued with her career, and she has appeared in at least four movies and has been involved in a number of  film projects.
