omigah!

 

i did not watch the most recent episode because I WENT TO GO SEE THE PRETENDERS (and to a lesser extent, Stevie Nicks) in Raleigh.

 

about eight songs in, CHRISSIE HYNDE ripped off her white Vivienne Westwood claw-hammer tail coat and tossed it at the base of the drums and I blacked out. when i came to, I was informed that my name has been submitted to the GUINNESS BOOK OF GAY WORLD RECORDS for the "LONGEST 'YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!!!!!!' IN RECORDED HISTORY!"

 

Kinda "over" FEUD...but will someone PM me to tell me just what lascivious detail about Victor they possibly fabricated?

 

ps- you guys, ROCK AND ROLL IS STILL ALIVE!!!!!!!

pss- Stevie reeeallly liked to hear herself talk tho'.

Baffled by your post, but Chrissie and Stevie are two of rock's greatest females.

Baffled by your post...

 

That is ALWAYS my aim.

 

ps- both of them DO sound every bit as good now as they did "then," and at 67, Stevie was doing that "spin" thing she does in what appeared to be 12 inch heels.

no, i really mean it!

I was "on the fence" about quitting watching FEUD earlier, but this latest plot development just has me saying "Peace Out."

 

it's definitely entering Kenneth Anger territory.

I think the producers of Feud have a right to take some literary license. After all it is not a PBS documentary on the Presidential Administration of Herbert Hoover.

 

At this point I am so addicted to this mini- series that I can only hope that they can make up more stuff, so that I can keep on watching it for the rest of the year.

 

Tomorrow TCM is showing "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" At this point, I don't know what is real and what is fiction anymore. All I know is that I'm having a good time.

 

BTW-- Even Jessica Lange's performance is starting to look good to me. LOL

Young people watching this who have little knowledge of the people involved will think it's the truth. And a lot of it is speculation and untruth. THAT'S what bothers me. If they had posted something to that effect in the credits it wouldnt bother me as much. That stuff with Buono was tacky and unnecessary (and I doubt very much it really happened).

What events on the show have been "libelous"? 

 

 

That stuff with Buono, if untrue, certainly would be. I've yet to read that incident really happened. And if it did was in poor taste to show it so graphically. Hollywood Bablyon stuff (and his books were very inaccurate and stories that werent always true)........

 

 

SPOILER******************************

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What theater in 1962 existed that would show those kind of movies?????

I think I used the term "libelous" incorrectly...

"TACKY" would have been more the mot just.

This is a terrific dramatic representation. I think if you want the truth you need to see a documentary of Hollywood.

 

So now young people get all of their historical Knowledge from FX. I'm going to give young people more credit than that.

It looked like a "private club", definitely not a public place, thus the police raid. Hardcore porn films, of all varieties, have been in existence as long as film has, as have people who show and watch them, despite the legality or the prevailing societal norms.

 

The "activity" that Buono was shown engaging in was a bit much, but knowing the show's creator, Ryan Murphy, and his predilection for shock moments, this wasn't too surprising. This show has been much more reserved than Murphy's American Horror Story series, most likely due to its basis in reality.

The role  of "Young Gay Man" (who accompanied Victor Buono to the club) was played by Dylan Wittrock. 

 

I wonder if he's related to Finn Wittrock, who has appeared in at least three seasons Ryan Murphy's AMERICAN HORROR STORY.

Maybe his brother?

All of this, you of course know, from extensive academic research on the matter.....

Lol...it's fairly well-known that almost every method of human communication has been utilized from its earliest stages for pornography, be it the printing press, motion pictures, home video or the internet.

Big Ole' Kool-Aid guy level "ooooooooooooooh yeah" to that.

 

Like, I bet immediately after the first successful run of the printing press, Johannes Guttenburg was all "OMIGAH- SOMEONE GET A PICTURE OF A NAKED CHICK!!!!!"

You may be right, but it wasnt made clear exactly what it was. Since there were rows of seats, I assumed it was some sort of makeshift theater. I'm not familiar with Murphy, but I have a lot of reservations about him trashing dead celebrities in this series. Some of the incidents in this show I know are either untrue or unsubstantiated (or happened in a different time) etc....

You should read about how archaeologists were surprised by the amount of graffiti found in ancient Roman ruins, and almost all of it was pornographic. Rome at its height had crudely drawn paintings of the male anatomy everywhere. Which would have made a lot of those 50's and 60's epics much funnier if they'd stuck to the historical truth.
