I like to spoil myself. And I don't just mean long baths, facials, manicures, and massages--although j'adore those as well. No, I am one of a rare breed: people who like to know the endings to movies (and books). I love, love, LOVE spoilers! It's kind of a sickness, I know. And to help me on my path to perdition is the website The Movie Spoiler, which is the newest enabler of my fiendish addiction. The site contains plot summaries of the top box-office movies each week, plus a small back catalog of older films. The summaries are written by amateurs and are sometimes good, mainly bad, but always full of spoiltastic fun!

On a similar note, Michael Musto, fabulous None More Gay gossipeer at The Village Voice, loves to spoil movies for other people. In his current column ("La Dolce Musto"), he writes:

"My favorite pervy thing to do is give away twisty endings of hot movies. In fact, for years I've practically orgasmed while running through crowds and screaming, 'They drive off a cliff,' 'The chick's got a dick,' and 'He's already dead!'"

After which he spews out a string of savory spoilers for some of the big "shock" endings of the year. And I LOVED it! If only he didn't live in New York, I think this could've been the beginning of a beatiful friendship...
