TauBu Girls’ December Flick Picks

Tom Cruise is back in action as Jack Reacher, in theaters Dec. 21.

A riveting crime story, a classic Chevy Chevelle and Megan Fox’s rockin’ rack make the TauBu Girls’ cut for top December flick picks.

Jack Reacher, December 21: You may remember that TauBu Girl Courtney is good with a gun. So she’s all about Jack Reacher. Post-divorce Tom Cruise is back in action as a brilliant military investigator and first-class troublemaker who goes ghost for two years. But when an expert sniper takes out five random victims and the accused tells officials to “Get Jack Reacher,” he suddenly resurfaces, guns a’ blazin’. Only trouble is, Reacher’s not so sure the Feds have the right guy. Add a gorgeous blonde lawyer (Rosamund Pike) and a classic early ’70s Chevy Chevelle and this one is well worth the ticket price.

This is 40, December 21: TauBu Girl Ginny is one hot mama. Literally. So she knows a thing or two about parenthood and is stoked about the opening of This is 40. Remember the uptight sister and brother-in-law to Katherine Heigl’s Knocked Up character? This film hits the fast-forward button for a look at the lives of Pete and Debbie a few years after little sis’ life-changing one-night stand, with one spectacular dressing room appearance by Megan Fox. Pay attention, 20-somethings. This just might be your future.

West of Memphis, December 25: TauBu Girl Eden digs a great documentary. And this one is sure to deliver. Known as the West Memphis Three, Jason Baldwin, Damien Wayne Echols and Jessie Misskelley were convicted of the savage, satanic-tinged 1993 murders of three little boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. Years of criticism of botched police work, missed suspects and blatant coercions followed until 2011, when new DNA evidence allowed the three convicted teens – now well into adulthood – to plead out and walk free. In West of Memphis, those who lived the story tell it in a way America has never heard before.

Extreme Kayaking Documentary Takes you on an Epic First Descent of the World’s Biggest Rapids

New 80-minute documentary, “Congo: The Grand Inga Project” follows four of the world’s top kayakers as they take on the globe’s biggest – and as yet unconquered – rapids.

Here’s one for true extreme sports enthusiasts and those living the TauBu life. Congo: The Grand Inga Project takes viewers into the African jungles for a mind-blowing dive kayak dive down the Congo River’s dreaded Inga rapids with four of the world’s top kayakers.

Producers couldn’t cast just anyone in the starring roles for this 80-minute documentary. After all, their adventure would take them into the same churning waters that infamously swallowed an entire team of French kayakers in 1985. Congo features Steve Fisher, a veteran kayaker who invented many of today’s freestyle moves and is widely considered the world’s best kayaker; Tyler Bradt, best known for his world record-breaking descent of 186-foot Palouse Falls in Washington State; Ben Marr, one of the top big-wave surfers in the kayaking world; and Rush Sturges, regarded as one of the sport’s most well-rounded paddlers and known for inventing moves like the “Pistol Flip” and the “Hail Mary.”

Together, this elite team of kayakers takes on their biggest challenge yet. The Inga rapids are 1.6 million cubic feet of boiling water per second thundering down the final pitch of the mighty Congo. That’s twice as steep and 100 times the average volume of the roughest rapids on the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon. Though explorers have tried for generations, none have yet conquered these rapids and lived to tell about it. Will these guys? Grab a cold one and take a look at the trailer. Then, post your thoughts on the TauBu Facebook Fan Page.

TauBu Digs the New Bones Brigade Documentary

Whether you were an ’80s street rat or just bought your first skateboard, if you’re a legit boarding fan you’ve no doubt heard of the Bones Brigade. Either way, TauBu highly recommends you snag a ticket to a screening of Bones Brigade: An Autobiography.

Says IMDB.com of this feature-length documentary: “When six teenage boys came together as a skateboarding team in the 1980s, they reinvented not only their chosen sport but themselves too – as they evolved from insecure outsiders to the most influential athletes in the field.”

For you slackers out there, let us hit you up with some historic skateboarding knowledge. The Bones Brigade was made up of six of the greatest skateboarders ever assembled on a single skateboard team – Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain and Tommy Guerrero. These skinny young kids changed skateboarding forever and are credited with the invention of multiple tricks that have become staples in the sport including the flatland Ollie, Caballerial, McTwist, 720, 900 and many of today’s street moves. Plus, they can boast a contest record as yet unmatched by any generation, and skate careers that have outlasted every generation.

The film is a project of another skateboarding legend, Dogtown and Z-Boys member Stacy Peralta.

“Based on my history with them and what I saw them accomplish first hand as young skaters… we may or may not ever see a skateboard team of this magnitude and significance again,” says Peralta of the Bones Brigade members.

Bones Brigade: An Autobiography is making the rounds at screenings in towns nationwide. And the producers and stars are bringing some serious swag with them in the form of re-issued Bones Brigade boards and merchandise, plus some pretty freaking amazing experiences. How about a tour of the Powell Skateboards factory, lunch and dinner with Peralta and George Powell; or a skate session in a secret Southern California locale and lunch with the Bones Brigade members – all of them?

TauBu lifers are bound to love this film. Check out the trailer, then head over to the Bones Brigade website for a list of screenings and info on bringing the film to your town.

TauBu Gives Mad Props to Robbie “Maddo” Maddison for Making 007 Look Good

Freestyle motocross champ Robbie “Maddo” Maddison makes Agent 007 look good in the latest James Bond film, “Skyfall.”

Last week, we introduced you to the ridiculously hot new Bond Girl Bérénice Marlohe. Well, we just learned we’ve got another reason to love the newest 007 flick, Skyfall. Freestyle Motocross champ Robbie “Maddo” Maddison, a favorite in the extreme sports world, landed a coveted gig as actor Daniel Craig’s stunt double in the latest James Bond film franchise.

Riding a dressed-up 250 CRF Honda, Maddo shows off his impressive motocross chops in a chase scene that takes place along the nerve-wrackingly narrow roofline walkways of an Istanbul marketplace. But even with his mad skills and hours of practice at an ex-military test facility, even he got a little unnerved when the director yelled, “action!”

“Going to the roof was probably the scariest thing for me,” he told reporters. “Really tight lines and obviously no helmets on.”

Not that Maddo hasn’t already proven himself. Considered one of the best FMX riders of all time, he faithfully lives by his personal motto: “Face your fears – live your dreams.” His resume includes successfully landing some crazy stunts including jumping clear across Greece’s Corinth Canal and, this past New Year’s Eve, the San Diego Bay. On that much publicized gig, he landed 391ft in practice, then came just shy of his 400-feet goal at show time, thanks to foggy weather, damp conditions and less traction. Still, he managed an enviable 378 feet, nine inches in the tandem jump alongside American snowmobile racer Levi LeVallee – another extreme sports staple.

Grab a can of your favorite TauBu malt liquor beer flavor and check out this behind-the-scenes video of Maddo in all his Bond-esque glory…

TauBu Girls’ November Flick Picks


A buxom new Bond girl, a taboo romance and a thriller that will truly get under your skin are among the TauBu Girls’ November flick picks…

  • Skyfall, Nov. 9: TauBu Girl Jamile was first in line for this one. James Bond is back on the big screen and this time, cinema’s favorite spy must keep a computer drive with a list of British agents from being used against them. In a botched shot by a fellow operative, Bond (Daniel Craig) takes a bullet, falls into the river below and is believed dead. M, head of the Foreign Intelligence wing of Her Majesty’s Secret Service, is told to pack it in, but she won’t budge until the matter of the missing drive is resolved – never mind that massive explosion that happens as she returns to headquarters. Suddenly, Bond is back from the formerly-presumed-dead and hot on the trail of the drive-swiping victim, who turns out to be a blast from M’s past. We love the plot, but we’re really stoked about the motorcycle chase scene along unnervingly narrow, roofline walkways that features Freestyle Motocross champ Robbie “Maddo” Maddison as Agent 007′s stunt double.
  • In Their Skin, Nov. 9: TauBu Girl Megan loves a great psycho-thriller. After the accidental death of their six-year-old daughter, the Hughes family jettisons their busy upscale suburban life and takes refuge in their isolated lakefront cottage. If you can call it a “cottage,” that is. This place is massive. Anyway, hoping that some company will provide a comforting distraction from their grief, they invite their friendly neighbors over for dinner. Trouble is, their neighbors are not only obsessed with their perception of the Hughes’ perfect life, and they’re certifiably crazy. Selma Blair, Rachel Miner, Joshua Close and James D’Arcy star.
  • Anna Kerenina, Nov. 16: Ever the romantic, TauBu Girl Kimberley is waiting with baited breath for Anna Kerenina, an epic love story based on a Leo Tolstoy book. Set in late-19th-century Russia high-society, the film follows Anna (Keira Knightley), an achingly beautiful aristocrat as she falls helplessly in love with the affluent Count Vronsky. Trouble is, she’s very much married to the wealthy and well-connected but emotionless Alexi Kerenin (Jude Law) who warns his wife, “You may, by indiscretion, give the world occasion to talk about you.” But women in hot, illicit love never listen. Ergo, Anna’s affair erupts into an international scandal. Taboo, indeed.

So which movie are you anxiously awaiting in November? Take a look at the trailers then post your picks on the TauBu Facebook fan page.

Living in the U.K.’s Coventry, Kimberley grew up on the dance recital stage. Today, she’s an accomplished Irish dancing champ with a wall full of trophies and medals to prove it.

Says one professional photographer of working with Kimberley:

Reasons…

  • Legs to die for;
  • Easy to work with, willing, enthusiastic but full of ideas;
  • Legs again;
  • Classy, elegant, fun. And really long legs.

Kimberly has a resume chock full of magazine, website, fashion runway and lingerie catwalk credits. And if she looks strangely familiar, check your iPhone. She’s featured on the iPhone Hot Pics and Super Babes mobile apps.

TauBu Introduces You to the Newest Bond Girl, Bérénice Marlohe

New Bond Girl, Bérénice Marlohe.

No doubt the new James Bond film, Skyfall, will be one of the season’s biggest box office hits. And it’ll be in no small part to the achingly beautiful new Bond Girl, French actress Bérénice Marlohe. Ooh, la la!

Never heard of her? Neither have we here at TauBu, but you can bet we’re getting to know her now. The 33-year-old hottie of Sino-Cambodian and French descent has been a staple on French TV over the past few years, but gets her big international break with Skyfall, playing the statuesque Sévérine opposite 007 Daniel Craig. Word is she beat out Brazilian beauty Ana Araujo (ex-girlfriend of Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood) for the role.

To prepare for her role as a mysterious femme fatale, Marlohe studied Famke Janssen’s dominatrix Xenia Onatopp in GoldenEye.

“It’s so original to have a character who kills and has an orgasm at the same time,” Marlohe told reporters. “That’s what we go to movies for.”

Indeed. But Marlohe is not just a pretty face and a bangin’ body. She’s also an accomplished pianist who studied at the prestigious French arts school Conservatoire de Paris for ten years. She speaks four languages (French, English, Spanish and Arabic) and plans to use her newfound celebrity status to advance human rights efforts in Cambodia.

Take a look at the Skyfall trailer, then post pics of your favorite Bond Girls on the TauBu Facebook fan page.

SEMA Show Impresses with Bangin’ Rides and Beautiful Booth Babes

Hey TauBu fans – Did any of you make it to Las Vegas for the 2012 SEMA Show? It’s the annual trade show of the Specialty Equipment Market Association, the world’s premier automotive specialty products trade event attracting upwards of 100,000 industry pros gawking at the wares of more than 4,000 exhibitors. If it’s new, cool and goes on your car or truck, it’s at the SEMA Show, considered the hottest ticket in town each November. The show is open only to credentialed automotive professionals, but a few diehards always manage to sneak past the gates with fake media passes (not that we’re making any suggestions).

Once inside, whether legit or on the sly, you’ll see why tickets are so coveted. Celebrities turn out both for scheduled appearances and as fans themselves. And the meticulously restored or totally reworked vintage rides definitely impress (Google “SEMA Mach 40″. But here at TauBu, it’s a little tough for us to focus on the assorted automotive awesomeness, what with those gorgeous and oft scantily-clad booth girls. For us, they’re the real stars of the SEMA Show.

In case you didn’t make it past the gates, we thought we’d introduce you to a few SEMA Show booth babes who we’d love to make honorary TauBu Girls. Grab an ice-cold can of Midnite Berry, Evil Apple or Wicked Punch and enjoy …

TauBu’s Sexy Halloween Costume Picks

Halloween is just around the corner. It’s one of our favorite days of the year here at TauBu. After all, it’s the one day of the year that otherwise quiet, shy girls can let their inner-taboo selves out for public display. In fact, the holiday itself has taboo beginnings.

Halloween customs are traced back to the ancient Gaels who believed that on October 31, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped, allowing the deceased to come back to live and wreak havoc in the form of damaged crops or mysterious illnesses. They burned bonfires to attract bugs, thus attracting bats, which symbolized rebirth because they lived in womb-like caves, considered the belly of the mother earth. People wore masks and costumes in an attempt to mimic and appease the evil spirits. And costumed children knocked on village doors, demanding confectionaries and other treats. The term “trick or treat” meant “give me a treat, or you’ll be tricked.”

Beliefs and customs obviously have changed over the centuries. Halloween parties and trick-or-treating didn’t fully catch on in America until sometime in the 1930s. Today, Halloween is fraught with fun parties and creepy, sexy costumes. You can bet the TauBu Girls will host spooky soirees complete with sexy getups, great eats and icy TauBu beer flavors.

Still haven’t got your Halloween costume? The TauBu Girls won’t show us theirs until Wednesday night, but we’ve got a few ideas. Click through the gallery to see our favorites and post your pics on the TauBu Facebook fan page.
