What happens when a gifted, ma­niacal writer hits the big time? If his name is James EUroy, he has a full-blown life-destroying meltdown. In part three of Ellroy's harrowing memoir The Hitliker Curse, his murdered mother's phantom returns with a vengeance to wreak havoc on Big Dog's life. But Ellroy's chaos is nothing compared with what will happen to all of us very shortly if the so-called 2012ers are correct. These people are convinced the world as we know it will end December 21, 2012. Revolution, earthquakes and an ass-kicking snake god named Quetzalcoatl will leave our planet in ruins. We think the 2012ers may have gotten inside Apocalypse 2012 writer Frank Owen's head. Last we heard he was stocking up on dry goods and water. But for real signs of the apocalypse, it's hard to beat the celebrity wormhole we created when we sent Spencer Pratt from The Hills to conduct an interview with this month's cover girl—and his wife—Heidi Montag, to accompany her delicious photo shoot by Matthew Rolston. If things get any more meta we fear the snake will begin

Dear Playboy
Is Baseball Too Slow?
[no value]

In Perfect Game: How to Fix Baseball (May), Bill James argues that baseball needs to be sped up—a misguided attempt to homogenize our national pastime. If you find it tedious when a pitcher doesn't allow a single offen­sive play during a game, you aren't a fan. Same goes for batter's box tactics. They do matter, and the incident on April 12 in which Josh Beckett threw a pitch that nearly hit Bobby Abreu in the head [at right] an instant after Abreu had been granted a time-out proves it. My advice to James: Watch something else.

In 2002 I attended a graduate student conference at California State University, Chico the week playboy dropped it from number one to number two in the party-school rankings. Under the guise of journalistic research I pestered the cut­est Chico Slate guy at the conference to show me what students at his school did for fun. He was hungover but ultimately acquiesced. Now, seven years later, we're married with kids. CSU, Chico may have fallen out of the top 10 (Playboy's Top Party Schools, May), but I'm glad you down­graded it when you did. Go, Wildcats!

MACK ATTACK

I love the magazine, but the subject of your article on Saipan, Mack Machado, is full of shit (Paradise Lost, May). He claims he served four tours in the Navy as a Special Forces (actually, that's the Army) antiterrorist specialist, at one point kill­ing prison guards in the Kuwait desert and watching their heads blow up "like pumpkins." Only a punk or wannabe talks like that, especially to an outsider. I spent 29 years in the Special Forces, and while killing is part of the job, it's not something you take lightly. Next we have Machado on a cargo ship, man­ning a "450-caliber tripod-mounted machine gun." That's actually a can­non. It wouldn't be on a tripod unless the guy firing it wanted to fly ass back­ward across the deck. Next he's serving all over the world, including landlocked Afghanistan—what did he patrol in, a hovercraft? He says that for the first time in his life no one is shouting at him. But once your training is over and you become a member of a special operations unit, the shouting is over.

A chick flick worth seeing this month is Post Crad, if only to glimpse the beautiful Vanessa Branch. She plays a receptionist with an attitude. You may recog­nize the Brit bombshell from her role in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. She plays a whore in those. "I'm the one who's always slapping Johnny Depp," she says. Vanessa also has a lead part in a new video game, Red Alert 3, in which she plays a Russian femme fatale. She says she wants to do period films, Jane Austen-type stuff. But rather than see her in all that 19th century costumery, we prefer her in jungle scenes, wearing five pounds of A bracelets and little else. ^ ^g

This one-of-a-kind Fear and Loathing: The Board Game (from artist JR Baldwin) comes with everything you see here—plus more fake drugs. You roll the dice and, depending on which peyote button you land on, pull a "dosing," "activ­ity" or "challenge" card. After a few doses, the game gets interesting. At $2,500 it's expensive but more fun than Hunter S. Thompson on a three-day ibogaine bender.

The recession has sent many back to school to pursue a degree in emerging fields, like, say, the budding industry of selling legal pot. Oaksterdam University prepares stu­dents for jobs at California's 500-plus legal marijuana dispensaries by offering classes in medical-marijuana law, horticulture, "cannabusiness," glassblowing and "bud tending." Oakland voters passed a refer­endum that effectively decriminalized pot in 2004, and the city's sinsemilla-gentsia has long dreamed of transforming their town into an American Amsterdam. Befit­ting a stoner's limited attention span, a basic seminar certificate at Oaksterdam U. can be earned over a weekend at a cost of S250. Talk about higher education.

The clip, which shows Lee wearing his iconic yellow jumpsuit from the film Game of Death and using nunchucks to play a hyperfast game of table tennis, is so mind-boggling we hereby name it our YouTube video of the month. As for the debate, we'll put an end to it now: A Nokia spokesperson has confirmed that the clip was created by global market­ing agency JWT to hype the Lee-themed Nokia N96 phone (available only in China). It's a fake! But we still can't stop watching it.

Great news for the 5 million American men who suffer from clinically low levels of testosterone—and basically any guy: Researchers (real sci­entists!) say watch­ing porn may be more effective than the lat­est hormone-boosting drug. At the age of 30 most men begin losing testosterone—which can cause them to become shorter, weaker and depressed—and therefore need more hormones. How do you make a hormone? Don't pay her.... Ahem, how do you boost hormones? Biological anthropolo­gist Helen Fisher sug­gests that men "go on the Internet and look at porn" as a type of really fun testosterone-replacement therapy. Yes, ma'am.

Quentin Tarantino's latest stars Brad Pitt and Eli Roth as vengeance-hungry Jewish American soldiers scalping and killing Nazis in occupied France during World War II. Despite its hairy-chested violence and over-the-top comedy, the curiously spelled Inglourious Basterds also features Diane Kruger as a glamorous yet le­thal movie queen who also hunts down Nazis, as a spy for the Brits. Kruger, the blonde beauty best known for her roles in Troy and the National Treasure flicks, says, "I play a great old movie star with a lot of attitude, like Marlene Dietrich. I researched actresses of that day and found one whose story was a bit similar to that of my charac­ter in the film. I brought DVDs and

Batman: Arkham Asylum

Scott Jones
After years of waiting, Bat fans finally get a decent game (360, PC, PS3). The premise: The Joker lures Batman to the titular asylum, and once he has his nemesis trapped inside, he unleashes all manner of hell. The Joker here is more Nicholson than Ledger, and the overall vibe more Frank Mill­er than Christopher Nolan. For much of the game you're confined to narrow corridors and the pac­ing falls just above plodding, but both those are good things—they're in service of an experience that captures the crafty, cerebral and considered qualities of Batman better than any game before it. As you'd expect, you spend a decent amount of time navigating the shadows, but when it's time to kick ass, the hand-to-hand combat engine is amazingly satisfying. If you're on PS3 you can get your ya-yas out by playing as the Joker on several exclusive levels. VVV'/z —Scott Jones

Jet first appeared on people's radar in 2003 via the bluesy stomp of "Are You Gonna Be My Girl"—among the first hits generated by an iTunes ad. The band's debut LP, Get Bom, went on to sell mil­lions. Now the Australian quartet returns with its third album, Shaka Rock, which adds soaring vocal melodies and touches of ska, psych and arena rock to its raucous down under riff and roll. Brothers Nic and Chris Cester spoke to playboy. PLAYBOY: You recorded in Miami, Brooklyn, Austin, Melbourne and Sydney. Are you running from the law or something? CHRIS: Well, sort of. In Austin I saw a bunch of old friends and went straight back to drinking whiskey out of the bottle. I wasn't in any kind of practice, so I got into a car and was arrested about 20 minutes later. I spent 18 hours in jail and was put on a chain gang in a two-piece black-and-white uniform. The guy on one side of me had a knife wound in his head, the guy on the other side went down for armed robbery.

Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon hosts a regular poker game in Hollywood re­nowned for its raucousness and humor (thanks to friends like Norm MacDonald, Artie Lange and Simon's ex-wife Jennifer Tilly). Now Simon is bringing the game to Playboy TV. "The stakes aren't the biggest, and the players aren't the best, but the game is definitely the funniest," he promises. Consider Sam's Game a mash-up between Texas Hold'em and a roast. Playing with their own money and tossing one-liners, more friends, includ­ing comedian Jeffrey Ross, poker player and playboy model Jennifer Leigh and PMOY 2001 Brande Roderick (we won­der if she'll lose her shirt), try to outwit one another. "There are only two small differences between the sessions at my house and the games we tape," Simon says. "The first is that there are now Playmates at the table. Great! The other is that we don't film in my house. We moved the game to the Palms in Las Vegas, so now I don't care if people spill their drinks on the floor." Watch the action on Sam's Game, Thursdays at nine p.m. EST/PST on Playboy TV.

We understand the urge to skate every waking moment. Still it's advisable that you sit once in a while. Just don't do it on anything even slightly subradical. Deckstools ($150, deckstool.com) are made from retired skateboards screwed together—part chair, part sculpture, no two alike. Even when you're not pulling a McTwist, you're sitting on something that has.

Don't be the guy who reaches for his three wood on the tee box. Callaway's new Big Bertha, the Diabto ($300, callawaygolf.com), is a forgiving titanium driver with a hyperbolic shape be­hind the clubface. Bertha lets you make big distance even when you don't hit directly on the screws. Be like us: Save the three wood ^^ for the green.

Biking instead of driving is great for you and the environment, but then you have to stash the thing on the other end. If you're look­ing for a more compact solution, check out Montague's Paratrooper ($800, montagueco.com). It's the same vehicle our troops carry when they air-drop into Afghanistan or Iraq and need to make tracks in a hurry. It's a full-freight mountain bike that folds down to half its size in a jiffy, all without tools. In our experience it stashes as well under a desk as it does in the back of a Humvee.

I get turned on to the point of becoming short of breath and suffering vertigo whenever a man winks at me. This has occurred since my freshman year of college. A young man in my dorm regularly winked at me and I would immediately swoon and let out a moan. He told a few friends, and they did their best to make me miserable. Thankfully I met my husband when I became a senior. He winked at me once in the car—fortunately he was driving—and 18 years later he uses it to his advantage (and mine) in the bedroom. I still get knots when a man winks at me in public, but it seems to have fallen out of practice as a flirtation tech­nique except among older men. Have you ever heard of anything like this?—R.M., Sacramento, California Not until you wrote, although it isn't surprising. A wink can be powerful—it allows a man to indicate in an instant he wants you naked and has the confidence to get it done. It's also intimate. Even in a crowd, only you and he know of hi, interest. You may have a similar reaction to any aggressi; secretive, unmistakable sign that the game is on.

For me, being prepared for 2012 is a stress reliever. I spend an average of $200 to $300 per month on my supplies. I've been training myself in what I call frontier _ living—dehydrating, canning, preserving, cooking with­out modern appliances. Last weekend I started deco­rating our attic (almost 3,000 square feet) to store my reserve because people I know are getting suspicious of the amount of 'hurricane' supplies I keep. I'll never be Martha Stewart, but I feel very good about the variety and quantity I have amassed. I believe in the three Gs of preparedness: God, guns and groceries."—Susan Skains, Texas Gulf Coast

<p>Kimberly Phillips needed a break, damn it. The 22-year-old from Corona, California had been working her perky butt off ever since she could remember, earning A's in high school, paying for a car through a slew of waitressing jobs and scoring a liberal arts degree as she slaved away full-time at a Montessori school. "I was just exhausted and couldn't get myself out of debt. So one day I said to Natalie, my best bud since the fifth grade. 'I want to try something different. I want to be something different.'" She and Natalie downed a bottle of wine, snapped some sexy photos and sent them to playboy. "Then we figured we'd just forget about it," Kim says. "If it happens, it happens." Two days later the phone rang, and voila—it happened. "It's so crazy," she says. "I still don't believe it. This experience is a million percent different from what I'm used to, because I'm so shy; I'm so not an L.A. girl. But I now have a whole new sense of ambition and confidence. I'm, like, Dude, if I can be a Playmate, what else can I do?" Has Miss September learned any lessons from her overnight success? "Stay positive," she says. "Never in a million years did I believe I'd be a Playmate, that this would turn out to be my fresh start, my big new year. You gotta keep the faith."</p>

By the time she shot a Playmate anniver­sary pictorial she was the official party coordinator at Studio 54. Since then Shay has lived in Italy, Spain and Mexico. Now she's back where the Bunny empire began—Chicago—and she's still hopping.

Heart Goes Boom

BAGHDAD-lt's often said that romance is all about context. When Lloyd Dobler can't get the girl, he stands outside her house and holds up a boom box blasting Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes." These days in Iraq, where a generation of teens has grown up amid war and insurgency, it's mostly about the blasting—of improvised ex­plosive devices, or lEDs. That's right: When an Iraqi father turns down a man who asks permis­sion to marry his daughter, an increasingly common response is to detonate a bomb in front of her house. Though no fatalities have occurred thus far, Captain Nabil Abdul Hussein of the Iraqi national police says, "These guys face any problem—with their girlfriends, family, anyone—and they're making this kind of IED." In addition to using these "love lEDs," as Iraqi authorities call them, disappointed suitors are resorting to other weaponry and expertise. "Another guy shot up his girlfriend's house to force the family to give her in mar­riage," says Hussein. "We've faced this many times."

KELLY BROOK (bru­nette) and RILEY STEELE play around on the set of Pira­nha 3-D. The movie will be released next spring, and the title spells it out for you: It's about schools of man-eating fish that terrorize a touristy lake, and it's in 3-D. Do they really think piranhas are their best 3-D selling point?

Meet KAYLEE CARVER, the model named Girl of 2009 by the British mag­azine Front. She was a dance student but now spends her time shop­ping and "making things." What things? "Cakes, Ikea cabinets and a mess," she answers. Well, she can always fall back on a dance career if modeling doesn't pan out. "I can do the moon-walk badly," she says. "I've tried the worm but have a few problems be­cause my boobies get in the way." With your looks and sense of humor, Kaylee, you'll go far.
