RIP, August Ames — Papa’s Basement 549
Mere days after being harassed on Twitter for a Tweet that some people deemed homophobic, August Ames, a young, beautiful adult star, took her own life. It’s a tragedy on countless levels, all of which we explore on the latest episode of the Papa’s Basement Show. On top of that, we tackle a tragedy of almost equal magnitude, the installation of tolls on Interstate 66 in Northern Virginia. And we cap things off with a review of Jim Carrey’s new Netflix feature, Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, where he discusses pretty much going insane on the set of Man on the Moon.
