I spent my Veteran's Day Wednesday hanging with my sweet witty bud from Kentucky. I just love sanctioned days off from work man! YEEHA!
Last year I made it a point to watch as many classic Bette Davis movies as possible, now I'm getting the urge to watch as many Joan Crawford films as well. We all know the rivalry between these two Hollywood superstars of the past was legendary. From what I've read, Joan tried many times to befriend Bette, and possibly even had a crush on her (Joan was allegedly bi), but Bette never forgave Joan for marrying Franchot Tone, whom Bette was madly in love with. The bitter feud lasted years, and the fact that these two bitches even made Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? together is nothing short of a miracle. I've seen Joan's most famous film Mildred Pierce, and it was pretty awesome, but I'd like to check out some more of her stuff, in particular the movies she made in the 1930s. Crawford's look/eyebrows were bizarre later in life, but in her early days she was quite the beauty in my humble opinion. I find it fascinating to watch movies from the 30s, because it was the first decade films had sound, and the realization that most of those productions were filmed in my hometown of L.A. is pretty neat man! Anyway, Mommie Dearest allegations and all, Joan Crawford is one fascinating woman, and I am looking forward to sitting down and checking out her filmography. Trog however, is not on my list of Joan movies to sit through however. LOL!
How dare I even show any intolerance towards Chastity Bono right? The girl is a lesbian and her decision to come out of the closet years ago and be an advocate for gay rights is to be applauded and celebrated, but the recent news-making headlines that she is well on her way to becoming a HE is really messing me up! HA! I mean, I don't think Chastity looked so bad as a chubby girl and all, but now we're supposed to call him Chaz? EEK! Have ya seen pics of Chaz lately?! YIKES MAN! Looks like a brawny lumberjack now! I think he's even going as far as getting the gender reassigment surgery too correct?! We all deserve to be happy in the end, so I have no right to judge, but I am most happy in my gender. Cher says she stands by her daugh...um, son, but poor Cher man, how does she even deal with this shit?! HEE! I guess it's kind of ironic that Cher is now looking like a man in drag herself, so there!
I just saw Nadya Ginsburg this past Saturday live in that play and she is just plain terrific! She deserves to be on national television more often or in some big Hollywood movie. Here she is brilliantly playing Cher in this hilarious YouTube skit with Jackie Beat as her "new son" Chaz:
