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.
Kimberley Dunn is a lovely lass with a love for football and a set of legs that just don’t stop. That’s why this Brit beauty is the November 2012 TauBu Girl.
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. And all that dancing has helped drive her career as a runway, print and commercial model thanks to an amazing – and amazingly flexible – body.
Says one professional photographer of working with Kimberley:
Told you I was going to work with Kimberley again. And I’m going to again, and again!!
Legs to die for;
Easy to work with, willing, enthusiastic but full of ideas;
Classy, elegant, fun. And really long legs.
Think I’ve made my point?
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. When she’s not working or dancing you might catch Kimberley taking a dip in the ocean or cheering from the stands of a Rangers football (you know, the game we call “soccer” on this side of the pond).

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 …
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.
As temperatures begin to drop nationwide, things are heating up at the box office. The TauBu Girls share their top three new movie picks for October.
Argo, Oct. 12: Turns out TauBu Girl Kali is a bit of a news junkie. So the new Ben Affleck-directed film, Argo, the story of a CIA exfiltration specialist’s risky plan to free six Americans trapped in Iran when Islamist militants took control of the U.S. Embassy in 1979. The film sticks closely to true events surrounding the crisis that involved 52 Americans being held hostage for 444 days. The six had slipped out of the Embassy and found refuge in the home of the Canadian Ambassador. Meanwhile, CIA agent Tony Mendez (Affleck) hatched a plan to rescue them by making his way into Iraq and convincing the six Americans to pose as screenwriters, directors and co-producers of a sci-fi flick, pretend to scout film locations over the next 48 hours, then fly out of out of the country together. Mendez even recruited Hollywood producer Lester Siegel and special effects pro John Chambers to green-light the script, lending the faux film project credibility. Amazingly, it’s a true but little-known piece of history, and Argo is already being touted as one of the best films to hit theatres in years.
Sinister, Oct. 12:TauBu Girl Nicole loves a great horror flick. So Sinister, starring Ethan Hawke, is right up her blood-splashed, scream-filled alley. The story centers on a young crime novelist who moves his wife and kids into a home where a family had been murdered. After putting the kids to bed, he decides to explore the attic – and as we all know, nothing good ever comes of that! There, he finds a box filled with reels of home movies that show the horrific killings and unleash a supernatural entity that soon has both cast and audience screaming at the top of their lungs. One reviewer called Sinister “Insidious‘ spooky, disturbing cousin.” Judging from the trailer, we agree.
Frankenweenie, Oct. 5: If the cinematic scare fests have you spent, opt for something a little more on the spooky-sweet side. Our newest TauBu Girl Georgianna, who has professional aspirations of being a cartoon voice-over artist, is all about Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie. Okay, get your mind out of the stop-motion animation gutter. Frankenweenie is the sci-fi resurrection of Sparky, main character Victor’s beloved dog who gets hit by a car. After a scintillating science lesson on electricity, young Victor decides to harness it to bring Sparky back to life. Spooky canine hilarity ensues and soon, Victor finds himself and his four-legged undead friend at odds with the local town folk and fighting to prove that Sparky is not a monster, but the same good and loyal pal he always was.
Sit back, sip a TauBu and enjoy the trailers. Then, head over to the TauBu Facebook fan page and tell us what your top October flick picks are.
Georgianna is one fun gal. But she’s got a head on her shoulders, too. It’s a combination that, along with her drop-dead gorgeous looks, makes her the perfect choice for our October 2012 TauBu Girl.
This Mexican-American beauty is a registered nurse living in Orlando, FL. We know what you’re thinking. Every red-blooded American guy who’s ever needed a little TLC, whether for a hangnail or a massive hangover, has had that sexy nurse fantasy. Dream on, guys. Georgianna takes her medical career seriously. And you probably wouldn’t stand a chance anyway.
But all seriousness aside, Georgianna knows how to have some fun, too. She supplements her nursing and modeling careers with an entertaining gig as a magician’s assistant in a traveling magic show and has aspirations of voice-acting a cartoon character one day.
Georgianna’s modeling career has landed her features in more than 15 online magazines; in multiple music videos and mixtape covers; and in ads for clothing lines, cigars and a car cleaning supplies company. Beauty and brains, too – she’s also the author of a fashion blog on LaMezcla.com. And she’ll put you to shame at the taco stand. You couldn’t tell it from that slim, shapely figure, but this girl loves to eat.
So what do you think, TauBu fans – What kind of cartoon character should Georgianna voice? Post your thoughts on the TauBu Facebook fan page.
Milla Jovovich reprises her role as Alice, fighting flesh-eating zombies and armed Umbrella Corp. troops in “Resident Evil: Retribution.”
September is a good month for gamers and moviegoers. The TauBu Girls share their picks for this month’s best new movies and one video game-inspired film tops the list.
Resident Evil: Retribution, Sept. 14: Gorgeous badass Milla Jovovich is back in TauBu Girl Rachael’s top September flick pick, Resident Evil: Retribution. Jovovich reprises her role as Alice, the human race’s last home against the evil Umbrella Corporation and its deadly T-Virus that’s transforming the global population into legions of flesh-munching undead. Her escape from Umbrella’s clandestine operations facility has her fighting both zombies and armed Umbrella troops by the dozens from Tokyo to New York to Washington, D.C. to Moscow as she hunts down the suits responsible for the T-virus outbreak. Sexy Michelle Rodriguez and Austrian hottie Boris Kodjoe also star.
House at the End of the Street, Sept. 21: TauBu Girl Jamile loves a good crime mystery, so she’s anxious for the release of House at the End of the Street. Elisabeth Shue and Jennifer Lawrence star as a mother and daughter who set up a new life for themselves in a small, upscale rural town after a devastating divorce. The daughter befriends the boy next door, whose sister had murdered their parents. Soon, it becomes frighteningly obvious that the horror story ain’t over.
Looper, Sept. 28: TauBu Girl Megan admits to being a bit of a sci-fi geek, so she’s stoked for the opening of Looper, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt. It’s the year 2072 and when the mob chooses a mark, the target is sent 30 years into the past. There, in 2042, a hired gun waits to mow down the mob’s marked man, virtually erasing him from the future. Joe, played by Gordon-Levitt, is one of those specialized assasins, dubbed “loopers” and thinks he’s in good with his bosses – that is, until he recognizes a victim as his future self (played by Willis). Face your past, fight your future, as the film’s tagline reads.
September 2012 TauBu Girl Rachael Dennis is both a runway star and a star runner.
At 5’7″, tanned and toned, Rachael Dennis cuts a striking figure. And while she loves to cut loose, this gorgeous professional mode is a force to be reckoned with, too.
“I have been figure modeling for two years now and glamour modeling for three,” she says. “I am fun loving but it is business first with me. I am very serious about my work, and give my best in every photo shoot and on every runway. I believe with vision, hard work and dedication, anything is possible.”
It’s that alluring mix of beauty, boisterousness and bold business sense that make Rachael the perfect choice for our September 2012 TauBu Girl.
Rachael’s experience includes runway appearances at Harriet’s Park Avenue Fashion Week, Premiere Orlando and AV the Book-Euphoria. She’s also modeled for MAC Cosmetics and Poseidon Avenue Swimwear, and appeared in an episode of the Charlie’s Angels television series that starred Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh.
While not on the runway, Rachael will run circles around you – literally. She’s a track and field star who rocks the hurdle, long distance, long jump, relay and sprint competitions. She’s also a yogi, a masseuse and, interestingly, quite the whistler. Whet your own whistle with an ice cold can of your favorite TauBu flavor and browse Rachael’s pics.
As August heats up, thousands of TauBu fans are headed to college. If you’re matriculating (big word, eh?) as an of-age drinker and new to the college party scene, the TauBu Girls have a few helpful tips.
“Show up fashionably late,” says TauBu Girl Edita. “The college party scene doesn’t start jumping until after 10:30 p.m. And nothing screams ‘I’m a freshman’ like showing up all eager-beaver an hour ahead of time. At best, it’s awkward. At worst, you won’t be invited back for the next one.”
“Ladies, leave your skinny jeans and Jimmy Choos locked away in your dorm,” says TauBu Girl Ginny. “Especially if you’re headed to a house party or basement party. If you’re partying right, you’re dancing all night and that gets hot. Plus, you can count on getting spilled upon on a pretty regular basis, so that high-dollar designer dress is not a good idea either. Instead, rock a pair of Daisy Dukes with a cute, flowy top or don a sexy-sweet sundress and sandals. Most college parties are pretty casual.”
“Girls, don’t show up with your male entourage. Guys, make sure you don’t show up without a flock of females,” says TauBu Girl CeCe. “Yes – this is a straight-up double standard, but you just gotta work it, especially if your party hosts are guys. No guy wants to see a potential hook-up show up with a gaggle of other guys. So girls-only groups showing up at the door will get lots of attention. Of course, your guy friends will be welcome, ladies – just arrange for them to show up a half-hour later. Guys, you’ll be welcomed quicker if you show up with several ladies. One for you and a few fun-loving singles is your best-bet scenario.”
“Get to know the hosts,” says TauBu Girl Eden. “At most college parties, 90 percent of the guests have no idea who’s doing the honors. Seek out your hosts and strike up a conversation with them. Making nice will help ensure you know when and where the next big throwdown is taking place.”
Above all, have a blast, but drink legally and responsibly. Your college years just might be your best yet, and you’ll want to be around to remember them 20 years from now.
August 2012 TauBu Girl Eden is an avid kiteboarder and a classically trained Italian chef. What more could you ask for in a gorgeous woman?
As you can probably gather from the pictures she submitted, Eden bakes a mean apple pie. In fact, the stunning, statuesque beauty is a classic Italian trained chef with a real thing for apples. Who knew Italy is one of the world’s top apple producers? Mele Cotte col Vino, anyone?
Of course, with all that culinary awesomeness going on, Eden has to work extra hard to keep that slammin’ figure in check. That’s why our August 2012 TauBu Girl is also an avid kiteboarder. Nearly every morning starts with an online check of the latest wind charts wherever she may be. News of a big nor’easter means you’ll have to wait a few hours to hang with Eden. The gal’s got priorities.
If you’ve never been kiteboarding, trust us when we say it’s harder than it looks. And you may have to deal with a few unexpected guests. Eden once had to move quickly to avoid being slapped off her board by a leaping 70-pound tarpon while kiteboarding in the Florida Keys. She’s taken her passion all around the world, competing or taking pleasure kiteboarding trips to Maui, Turkey, Peru, Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, New Zealand, Egypt and the Philippines. Her favorite spot: Foddini in Italy’s Nuoro/Cardedu near her childhood home, where she lived before moving to New York to join family and pursue her modeling career.
As expected, Eden’s favorite TauBu beer flavor is Evil Apple – a perfect match for both her name and her culinary talent. Pop the top on your own cold can of Evil Apple, peruse Eden’s pics, sign up for kiteboarding lessons, then Google a recipe for Tortino di Mele and head into the kitchen. You can thank us later.
