  1. we'll miss you, karen Black! those EYES!

    saw her one-woman cabaret back in '09, and it was truly a rad-surreal experience. she told stories, sand songs, did some postively Lynch-ian monologues; SUBLIME.

    afterward, she posed for this picture with my buddy and i. i asked her if, despite not having enjoyed her experience making "Day of the Locust", if she'd mind posing with us giving "day of the locust"-shoulder..... she gave my pup-a-licious buddy and i a complete one-over, and purred "of courrrse, boyssss"



    rock on, lass. immortality through celluloid.

    Must be named, "FABULOSA"!

  3. On second thought, that sounds too much like the Puerto Rican Pine Sol.

    Make that, "Fabulosima"!

  4. Thanks for the memory, Kiwi. My sentiments about Karen Black also.

    Yep, Karen Black was one of the movie divas of my movie going years: Black, Dunaway, Fonda, Redgrave, Roslyn Cash, Glenda Jackson, Diana Sands, Marsha Mason, Ellen Burstyn and Julie Christie, Liza and Diana. A long time ago.

    Oh, how the hell could I forget Babs and Bette? Could it be latent anti-semitism? Nah, no way.

  5. I can't imagine someone not knowing who Oprah is, even in another country. I'm sure the b***h who refused to show her that purse is gone. BTW, the purse costs about $38K.

  6. The store owner and store clerk are already in the press stating Oprah is embellishing her story to meet her needs of being "racially profiled". And this surprises who with her movie about racism coming out?

    If it calms your nerves Oprah baby I was in Chanel when I was a younger gent and said I wanted to but a purse for my mother. The sales clerk said "Do you know our bags start at two to three thousand dollars?" and I said "Nope, bye" and I'm very white.

  7. MSNBC puts white male that hates women, children, and gays to prime time. I understand it'll be called 'The Toxic Queen Hour" or "Thoughtless Little Pig."

  8. Haha! Leave it to the Swiss to condescend to the Big O! Tschüss, baby!

  9. Karen Black was a horror movie diva. A great star.

  10. I love how FaceBook money goes to finance crazy conservative hypocrites.

    Even more, I just love how the gay blogs make little to no mention of all the other things that impact us; like how the FBI has shut-down parts of the TOR network, while installing what would be felonious surveillance software on people's computers who go to TOR network sites.

    But what I really just LOVE is the absence of interest in the gay blargassphere in the closings of LavaBit and SilentCircle, as the federal government continues it's perpetual assault on our privacy and civil rights, with their secret warrants, subpoenas, courts, and jails, and how if you even receive any of these secret subpoenas or are the subject of any of these secret warrants, are under the threat of felonious federal prosecution if you even admit to having received one.

    As the nation slides relentlessly and inevitably into an unconstitutional police and surveillance state, the likes of which in breadth and scope dwarfs Russia and North Korea, our media aggregators pretty much totally ignore our waning Liberty and freedom.

    A nauseating irony, to be sure.

  11. Mark Zuckerberg never struck me as someone worth trusting.

  12. THE OTHER QUESTION from Oprah's latest alleged racist encounter with Clerks Who Don't Know Who the F She Is.... First, of course, racism still exists in the world and that's terrible and must be called out wherever it's encountered. But, Children, PLEASE! What's someone who's never shied away from taking bows for her vaunted sensitivity to the poor doing shopping for a $38,100 crocodile handbag anyway? Yes, yes, yes, it's HER money, and she has a right to do with it what she wants. But I have a right to say, "Damn misplaced priorities, Girlfriend!"

  15. Zuckerberg's organization is all about flooding this country with immigrants. Zuckerberg needs cheap labor. About 45% of Facebook employees are foreign.

  16. So, now we're supposed to get all bubbly over Alec the Toxic and his new show?
    Please. The Lean Forward network is leaning too far in the direction of a liberal homophobe. But I guess hating women, little girls, and gay men is okay if it's done by a liberal.
    I'm a liberal and have been an activist for quite a long time, but I hate hypocrisy and there's far too much of it in every ideological camp.
    We've worked too hard to give even the tiniest bit of daylight to a fraud like Baldwin.

  17. Cant belive that 2 volenteer teachers get acid poured on them. It does not encourage people to go on volenteer work.
