It's Friday! I have struggled so hard to make it to work this week, but I did it! And I notice the spacebar on my keyboard here is faltering a bit. I'll deal with it!
Do any of you like old classic movies? I just watched one of these obscure ones made in 1938 starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant called Holiday, and it was actually pretty entertaining. The script is not that spectacular, but the actors are able to turn it into a pretty fascinating film. Credit the director George Cukor as well, who was pretty damn good in his day. George was gay ya know, and had a knack for getting his actors to perform at their best, especially the females. I had read somewhere that Clark Gable didn't get along well with George Cukor on other film projects, because Gable was a bit of a homophobe. Well suck it Gable! Damn, I like Gable too! Well, Vivien Leigh did say while filming Gone with the Wind that Gable had bad breath. SO THERE! LOL! I'm rambling a bit here, but the point being I'm liking old movies more and more. They're actually quite cool, and the dialogue back then was pretty sharp, even for those days. Cary Grant was an awesome leading man; so enjoyable to watch in most of his films, much better than James Stewart and that annoying voice! UGH! Rumor has it Cary was possibly bisexual too. OOOOOOOOOOO! Clark Gable would not have approved, halitosis and all! I can't make up my mind who was the more stunning/better actress between Katharine Hepburn or Bette Davis, but I shouldn't even compare them, for they were both in top form during their remarkable legendary careers. Let's just say they were both great! LOVE ME BOTH DEM BITCHES!
I guess one of the extra appeals about old flicks is the fact that they're these precious time capsules of what it was like in those days; everyone was fairly prim and proper, no one dared to go out looking casual, and whites pretty much dominated the ethnic make-up of America! It's pretty fascinating stuff. The fact that I was born and live in Los Angeles also makes these classic films more intriguing; most of them were filmed in studios and locales so close to home here! There's real history in this city folks! Big stars lived and worked here, as they still do I suppose, but the ones back then were cooler I think. They seemed more glamorous and suave. Ya know what I mean?
I got no set plans for this weekend, except to enjoy it, sleep, and hopefully catch Milk at the theater tomorrow night Saturday!
My co-worker burned this CD for me, and I'm liking MIKA, the Lebanese-British gay artist with the catchy beats:
