    Off Topic: Favorite Music?

    This song has been playing in an enchanting milk commercial lately. Good British Invasion song (a B side no less), nice to watch Rita Tushingham wander around.

    May there be great billing and cooing in the land. Happy Valentine's Day!
  3. Had not even heard of him, so thanks for posting this. I've watched at least of hour of YouTube clips in addition to what you've posted, and find him to be sensible (stop making sense!), fair-minded, intelligent, and a free thinker. Very refreshing these days!
  4. Sad, as office romances spice up the place. I met my husband at work, and where we were there were many relationships going on, the place was jumping with it! I'm long gone from there and no doubt things have changed.

    Rex Reed would be a great TCM Host

    Thanks for the clip--he's still got it! Haven't seen him in ages, but it takes me back to watching him on the talk shows decades ago. It was also a delicious discovery of gay men and a brand of sometimes scathing wit I had yet to encounter as a clueless young teenager. (Not saying all gay men are like Rex Reed, not that it would be a bad thing!) This thread has really penetrated my unconscious, as last night I dreamt I met Rex Reed himself at a sparkling New York City cocktail party. If only! Whoops, somehow Jakeem's post didn't show up.

    Well, it fails on both counts here.

    And they say kids can't communicate these days.

    Rex Reed would be a great TCM Host

    Would very much enjoy seeing Rex Reed as a host, or hosting various segments on TCM. He was on the talk shows a lot when I was growing up, and my mother and I got a kick out of watching his witty, bitchy, wise comments from Merv or Johnny's couch on movies and movie stars, or better yet, his own life. Maybe he's said a few undiplomatic things in recent years, but as the decades march on, don't we all? I'd be happy just to hear him talk about life at the Dakota. For me he will always be relevant. I can imagine him discussing The Women, various Mitchell Leisen movies, or his 70s favorites in that wonderful voice, waiting for that zinger sure to offend the weak of heart.

    (Sigh!) Christmas Music

    I guess some years we're more in the Christmas spirit than others. Anyway, a skating Snoopy somehow makes Joni Mitchell's beautiful song all the more poignant.

    Tonight on the phone my 90-something father was up in arms about the American Music Awards. "All dreck!" I think he said. After two ! hours of it he had to turn to something else. I couldn't watch it either, and went to YouTube to cleanse the palate by listening to rock 'n' roll. Found this duet of Rebel Yell with Billy Idol and Miley Cyrus. She could really be a badass rock chick if she wanted. We need some!

    MEXIFORNIA & LEFT COAST NEWS

    Yep, crazy as loons! Or is it bedbugs....? I favor the plan to split the state in 5 districts. I think the original plan was for 7. A state can dream...

    The Man Who Fell To Earth

    Two of my favorites as well. Such an embarrassment of riches in that era!

    Well, another one gone way too soon. Rest in peace, Malcolm Young. This has always been a favorite video. Not to mention how stunningly limber is the girl!
  14. Susan Strasberg would also have been very good in the role. She played it on Broadway and was nominated for a Tony Award. Not sure if she was considered for the part, but she certainly should have been. She was petite and young looking, so surely could have pulled off the look. Well, just goes to show how fickle show business can be.

    Wishing everyone a very Happy Halloween. About half an hour left here, so perfect time for almost 3 hours of "Ghost Riders in the Storm," with an eclectic cast of characters. A local radio radio station played a few hours of versions one Halloween night, and I was hooked. A new tradition. Anyone have a favorite? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93ng33Pi_Pg
