  1. "Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, and other Broadway notables" LOL

  2. I thought a "video lip dub" was specifically one camera take, no cuts. That would be more fun (and harder to pull off). This seems to just be an ad for Kinky Boots. Still, it's a great song.

  9. I read Lauper's memoir (titled Cyndi Lauper: a memoir); it's a fun read. Sounds like it was dictated more than written, but that's only a drawback if you get tired of her nattering on.

    Lauper devotes a chapter to the making of the Girls video. So I edited the chapter for my blog. Example: [0:44] "I wanted the kitchen to be very fifties. We couldn't really afford wallpaper - it was really a low-budget shoot - so I brought in a tablecloth from Screaming Mimi's that had a pattern I liked, and the art director ... painted the walls like that."
