I'VE WRITTEN A LETTER TO SADDY



I'VE WRITTEN PRESIDENT OBAMA TWICE TODAY BECAUSE I'M SO HORRIFIED BY HIS SPINELESSNESS. I CAN'T IMAGINE WHAT HE'S THINKING BUT I KNOW HE NEEDS TO HEAR FROM THOSE OF US WHO ARE THINKING. THE WHITE HOUSE CONTACT LINK IS BELOW. MAYBE IF HE HEARS FROM ENOUGH OF US, HE'LL KNOW THAT VOTERS ARE A STRONGER FORCE THAN WHATEVER IS MAKING HIM CAVE NON-STOP TO REPUBLICANS, WHO REPRESENT THE MEGA-RICH AND CORPORATIONS AND NEVER THE PEOPLE. PLEASE WRITE HIM. IT MAY HELP. HERE'S MY EMAIL.

I was shocked to hear that you've adopted a Republican idea--to freeze wages on federal employees so that they'll get no raises for two years. You prefer to shortchange your own middle class employees than tax the wealthiest Americans who own half of the wealth in this country. They aren't hurting. The middle class is.

You aren't even listening to the poll numbers or you'd know that Americans don't support extending tax cuts for the wealthy. So who are you trying to please? Republicans who have thwarted your every move? You aren't listening to the people who elected you. And they won't elect you again if you cave on this core democratic principle of taxing everyone equally. And certainly not giving the wealthiest a break in a recession when the rest of us are in dire straights financially.

Bring back the man I voted for, campaigned for and contributed to. Or switch to the Republican party. You certainly seem more interested in pleasing them than your base.

PS: DUMP MICHELE AND SCREW ME!

Q REVUE AT ESCUELITA TONIGHT



Last week I was the guest at Q Revue at Escuelita. It was a very different experience. The club put seats out and Bianca Del Rio, Princess Jane and Logan Slaughter gabbed on the mic about whatever took their fancy--The A List, Drag Race, NYC queens, Next magazine, etc. When the conversation turned to gay suicides, I urged all 3 hosts to please try it. Janae spoke movingly about her own experiences ending with "I would never commit suicide, but I WOULD kill a motherf#cka!", much to the crowd's approval. Since the ladies were seated for their chatfest, an audience member shouted "I see your panties!" to which Janae retorted "So, I see your FACE!" Logan and I performed songs and Bianca was hilarious as usual. If you want something different, check this out.

MAKING WAR EVEN MORE INHUMAN

FROM TODAY'S NY TIMES COVER STORY: "War would be a lot safer, the Army says, if only more of it were fought by robots."



SAFER FOR WHO, YOU @SSHOLE? Iraqis we should never have started fighting but we're still there after almost a decade? Afghans who want us out of their country, a country which Al Quaeda (the supposed enemy) has left?

One of the Pentagon's estimates for a robot system was $300 billion. We don't have jobs or enough $ to keep our homes! We can't afford this. The US spends more money on defense than EVERY other country combined. Yet we can't win wars in two dirt poor countries like Iraq and Afghanistan? Unless our goal isn't actually to win...Maybe the Pentagon's goal is to award that lucrative $300 billion contract for robots to a company which Michael Chertoff consults for. He certainly hooked up Rapiscan with a ton of dough when these new scanners were deemed necessary--as these robots are now being touted as the answer.

"At the same time, military technologists assert that tele-operated, semi-autonomous and autonomous robots are the best way to protect the lives of American troops."

WHY WOULD I WANT TO PROTECT THE LIVES OF MURDERING, CONSCIENCE-LESS TROOPS WHO MY TAXES PAY FOR? I'd rather protect the lives of Iraqi civilians than US terrorists in uniform.

"Because robots can stage attacks with little immediate risk to the people who operate them, opponents say that robot warriors lower the barriers to warfare, potentially making nations more trigger-happy and leading to a new technological arms race. “Wars will be started very easily and with minimal costs” as automation increases, predicted Wendell Wallach, a scholar at the Yale Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics and chairman of its technology and ethics study group. Civilians will be at greater risk, people in Mr. Wallach’s camp argue, because of the challenges in distinguishing between fighters and innocent bystanders."

I DON'T GIVE A F#CK IF HUMANS OR MACHINES ARE DOING THE ACTUAL COMBAT. WAR IS WRONG. WE'RE ALREADY SO DETACHED FROM THE GRUESOME NATURE OF WAR THAT WE SIT AND DO NOTHING ABOUT IT EVERY DAY. MURDER IS MURDER AND SINCE OUR TAXES ARE PAYING FOR IT, WE'RE ACCOMPLICES TO IT. THIS IS NO CHRISTIAN COUNTRY--WE'RE COMPLETELY AMORAL. JANET JACKSON'S EXPOSED BREAST AT THE SUPERBOWL CREATED MORE OF A SCANDAL THAN THE TWO SENSELESS WARS WE'RE CURRENTLY IN. AND WE'RE TOO STUPID OR UNCARING TO REALIZE THAT OUR PRECOUS TROOPS ARE MAKING US LESS SAFE BY STIRRING HORNETS NESTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST WHICH WILL STING US FOR DECADES TO COME.

BUT WE'RE THE GOOD OL' USA AND OUR SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY AND PRIDE WOULD NEVER ALLOW US TO CUT AND RUN. PLEASE CUT AND RUN! EVEN BETTER, THINK BEFORE YOU CUT IN THE FIRST PLACE! BUT NOW WE'RE OVER THERE AND WE CAN'T JUST LEAVE THESE COUNTRIES IN A MESS, GOES THE TYPICAL REASONING. OH SURE, CARING SO MUCH IS WHY WE INVADED THESE COUNTRIES IN THE FIRST PLACE. WE DID IT OUT OF LOVE. OH, AND SADDAM WAS A BAD MAN. BUSH WAS A WORSE MAN, YOU IDIOTS!

SUPPORT THE TROOPS=SUPPORT US TERRORISTS IN UNIFORM.

BURLESQUE: A VERY GAY REVIEW OF A VERY GAY MOVIE

or HOW DOES A MOVIE ABOUT FEMALE STRIPPERS BECOME GAY?




I really wanted to enjoy this flick. I'd read bad reviews but was determined to give it a chance because of my lifelong fascination with La Cher. But the reviews were right--the script IS stale. When Christina asks her boyfriend who wrote a song he's playing on the piano, you mouth his response "I did" even before he does. This happens so often in this film that by the end my mouth was working harder than a halibut that just got clubbed by Sarah Palin. Actually, I should say movie rather than film. Film is a little too fancy a word for this feel good, formulaic dud. If you're looking for fine cinema, edgy camera work, fresh plot or dialogue, skip this one.

There are some moments of humor and sass, often belonging to the wisecracking gay wardrobe mistress warmly played by Stanley Tucci. He also gets one of the schmaltziest subplots ever, though I suppose it presents a somewhat positive image of gays if that floats your boat. (It sunk mine.) In one scene, everyone employed at the strip joint goes to a wedding party and the handsome young dj attracts the attention of one of the strippers right before he plays Boston's More Than A Feeling, which I'm guessing people still dance to in LA. Stanley's character notices him too. Fast forward a few frames and Christina's character Ali--it's short for Alice and not a muslim name--has quarreled with her beau so she heads to Mr. Tucci's home for advice because gay men typically form such long lasting relationships. The dj hottie answers Stanley's door half naked. That jaded old queen scored! The lovebirds can't remember each other's names, however, so we're given a peek at the empty promiscuity of the gay existence. But wait! Because this is a feel-good movie where everybody wins and every conflict is nicely patched up, these gay lovers do not just part ways with another notch on their belt and a few less t-cells. After Christina rushes off with renewed hopes of finding her man, Stanley asks the guy if he'd like to stay for lunch! And gays suddenly aren't so sad anymore! They must not be on crystal meth either, if they actually eat lunch. But the film makers had to show Disneyfied American viewers that gay hook-ups were inherently tragic until this redeeming moment. That way, audiences could first disapprove, and THEN get an inkling of hope when their tawdry one night love affair is prolonged to...I hear wedding bells...a lunch date! Even though the couple is gay, so prudish America could never really approve of them in the first place. Sorry! Didn't mean to rant about how dumb this country is so I'll stick to how dumb the movie is.

Maybe dumb's not the word, but it's definitely predictable. Because of the many feel-good, cliched plot twists, I literally had my beautifully coiffed head in my hands with embarrassment after the first half. The film's turning point (or should that be stomach-turning point?) comes when Christina's called to step in and lip-synch for the lead dancer who's late to work again. To get her back, the bitchy lead heads to the sound booth and right at that moment, the sound guy conveniently vanishes. So the lead pulls the plug and the track stops, exposing Christina's vocals as fake. But then Ali saves the day by proving she can sing live and the crowd beats the walls in awe of her rafter-rattling vocal prowess. When the music starts back up for a big finish, it has magically become a backing track with no more vocals! Um, I lip-synch for a living and you wouldn't ever keep an instrumental version of your track in the booth. I know it's Hollywood and it's not supposed to be a fantasy. But shouldn't it make sense? For me, yes.

But not for everyone. A friend of mine summed up the movie with this: "I loved every second of it...It has fierce songs...dance..makeup...costumes..wigs..hot men...and CHER...i could care less about the script....it's fun entertainment."

So if that's all you need for $12 and if "fun" means hackneyed, mindless glitz, Burlesque succeeds. You might not believe this from his lingo, but my friend was actually gay! And how on earth are you going to make conversation at happy hour if you didn't see Burlesque? Face it, you're gay and you're going. The movie does deliver fun tunes, showy arrangements, costumes, wigs for days and decent choreography. Sometimes the lighting is a little cheap, but never on Cher it ain't! I can only imagine Cher's contract, though we do know that the playwright responsible for Moonstruck was tapped to doctor Cher's scenes. It appears that the ageless diva has kept quite a few doctors busy since that Oscar-winning 1987 performance.

There's been a huge burlesque revival in the last decade and a half, after the big drag boom of the 1990's. It almost seemed as if female performers said "Hold on! We want to perform and wear wigs and over-the-top costumes, too!" Dita Von Teese, with her vintage styling and porcelain doll looks sprang from this wave. Genius neo-burlesque performers like The World Famous Bob and Dirty Martini bring down houses all over the world with a sassy new brand of striptease which incorporates classic bombshell looks and moves with humor, political awareness and a celebration of women's real curvy shapes. Far from recognizing this trend, this film gives more of a nod to the trashy Vegas stylings of the Pussycat Dolls/Trolls whose videos director Steve Antin also directed! And despite decent staging, none of the songs leap off the screen to make you cheer.

How does a movie about women dancing naked have so little sex appeal? This brand of burlesque is highly sanitized. Perhaps a nod to the film's inevitable gay audience, Cam Gigandet (who looks like Queer As Folk's Peter Paige) removes more clothes than any of the girls do. I'd love to know if straight guys find this movie sexy at all. With their judgment unclouded by the gays' diva worship, straight guys are gonna give it to you...well...um... straight. And judge the stars on their actual sex appeal. I'm not sure how these two stars would add up on the erection-o-meter. I asked my married hetero recording engineer if he would screw Cher and he hesitantly said yes, but only if he just saw her without knowing her true age. Like it or not, the success of a movie often hinges on this factor. Cher is all too aware of this or she wouldn't have tweaked her mug so much. At this point, she's done more tweaking than a meth-addicted bottom guzzling Red Bull in a bathhouse on payday.



If you just needed a Cher fix, Burlesque will get you straight. Like me, you will have been jonesing for her since she's put out no album or movie in years. Yes, rhe diva still has "it" in spades and her large, luminous, glittering, soulful eyes are a joy to behold. It's also brave to see a 64-year old woman look showing her ass cheek--and I didn't catch one glimpse of her adult diapers! There's one scene in which Cher gives Christina some motherly makeup tips that will make gays and drag queens alike orgasm. And Cher's two numbers are fine--I can easily imagine the remix of You Haven't Seen The Last Of Me becoming a smash with it's rousing, sing-a-long chorus. The story does feel like it's just exists to glue together MTV music videos together.

That's where Christina comes in. She gets both more screen time and songs which show off her impressive voice and competent moves. Her soulful voice is perfectly suited to dramatic big band arrangements which recall the vibe of her hit Candyman. The ballad, I'm Bound To You, is hauntingly gorgeous with interesting chords and she sings the hell out of it. Trust me, you'll be seeing Burlesque-themed production numbers in drag pageants for years to come. But even large breasts and long blonde wigs can't make Miss Aguilera sexy. I wonder if most guys really lust after powerhouse performers anyway? It seems like two different parts of the brain to me. An in charge, knock 'em dead showstopper doesn't seem to appeal to most men the way a vulnerable, I need-your-protection-so-put-those-big-strong-arms-around-me sort of gal does. In two scenes, two different love interests snatch Christina's bags and demand that she follow their lead. Chalk it up to my drag queen's confusion about sexual roles, but I almost applauded when the guys took the upper hand with her. Try as I might, I can't see Christina as anything but a sullen bitch. A talented sullen bitch, but still. There's just something about her which screams, even when she's attempting to portray tender moments, "I think I'm all that." She IS all that when she's singing, which maybe she should stick to. She couldn't make me believe that she's sweet, innocent or anything soft. I hate to bring my pre-conceived notions about a performer, some of which are based on "industry hearsay" (ie drunken, coked up, gossipy hairdressers--or is that redundant?) into my assessment of Christina in a totally new role. But I just can't get around the notion that in the back of her mind she's thinking "I hope these idiots get this, unlike my last album. And by the way, Britney's a no-talent, fat, white trash skank!"

But Ms. Aguilera does provide the one major lol moment. Before proving herself to be a dynamo onstage, Ali pays her dues as a cocktail waitress yearning to perform. Ali--or is this more the real Christina or written that way because that's how Christina really is and she can't play anything else?--is a bit shy around her boss Cher/Tess at first. (Although she immediately turns into a ballsy diva after her first night of success.) She respectfully tells the boss lady "Yes ma'am" to which Tess, who frequently jokes about her age, shoots back "Don't ever call me ma'am." To the delight of those (like me!) who have enjoyed hearing gags about Cher being a drag queen and how well-hung she is, a flustered Christina then respectfully blurts out "Yes, sir." If you didn't like that joke, the comedy element is downhill from there. When Christina first enters the club, she asks if it's a strip joint. A Joel Grey in Cabaret-ish doorman played by Alan Cumming replies "I should wash your mouth out with Jaegermeister." If you laughed at that you'll like all the jokes.

Speaking of booze, Patron must have paid a fortune for product placement. First Christina orders it and then a Tess in distress barrels into work with a Patron bottle in hand. (The bitch stole my act!) Though somehow she forgets to act bombed. (So she didn't nail my act!) Perhaps the liquor company specified that no one could appear too inebriated or no paycheck. They like to sell the hooch but gloss over the fact that it makes people drunk, though that's the only reason that we but it. I'm not buying Patron or Burlesque. At least the former is undeniably intoxicating. And while gays are drawn to their divas like crows to stealing jewelry, we are also the first to scream out "TIRED!"

TODAY, I'VE GOT A BEE IN MY BONNET ABOUT....




MEOW! (CNN) – Sarah Palin may not have the biggest fan in former first lady Barbara Bush."I sat next to her once. Thought she was beautiful," Barbara Bush said.
"And she's very happy in Alaska, and I hope she'll stay there."


I'm convinced that this is new GOP strategy: attach some hotness/porn star buzz to conservatives. And you'll have one-stop shopping for the simpletons who only pay attention to politics when they're turned on. At one time not very long ago, an association with porn was a death knell for anyone tied to politics or news ...in the US.

Fast forward to now: ex-Playgirl model Scott Brown (R) was elected to replace Ted Kennedy's seat in Massachusetts, Levi Johnston is welcomed back into ultra conservative Sarah Palin's home after his Playgirl shoot and even his threats to bring down the Palin dynasty--Sarah is really biting the bullet to make her daughter's bastard seem more kosher. Unless she sees a hottie as a plus. And now this Fox anchor's spread in GQ.

And let's not forget that however I loathe her, Mama Grizzly is very attractive. From Michelle Bachmann to Christine O'Donnell, there was a rash of crazy but good looking GOP candidates. Trying to soften their image of hawkish old white men? The GOP: a whack ideology that you can whack off to.

The pope is now admitting that condoms are useful in some cases--like avoiding the spread of HIV among male prostitutes.

CBS Studios just received a fan letter for Bristol Palin containing white powder. Only Fox and TMZ are currently reporting this, but it only happened about an hour ago. This seems suspicious to me. As did the 2001 anthrax attacks. I wouldn't put it past republicans to orchestrate this to gin up a sympathy vote for our... first female president. It was talcum powder.

I see this as part of diabolical plan:

1.Cut education so that people are too stupid to vote in their own best interests but happy to vote for corporate interests who have spent enough dough to win hearts and minds. As they did in the recent mid-terms, where the nonsensical tea party gained a foothold. These "grass roots" health care reform protesters were actually out in the streets holding signs that they'd printed out from websites run by insurance company lobbyists! CHECK!

2.Bombard kids with so much sh(t that it's much tougher for them to concentrate even if the crap educational system didn't already leave them disengaged. (Let's not mention their complete lack of charm and ability to make an actual...GASP...phone call.) And if we're all addled by ADD, we can't possibly focus on anything as complex as immigration, tax or health care reform. CHECK!

3.Get people so wrapped in junk-filled, tabloid culture that they readily choose these easily digestible tidbits over anything which involves taxing their pea brains. Hence, we know every worthless detail about Jennifer Anuston and Brad Pitt or Snooki but can't understand a bum deal which we signed which has our home being foreclosed on. And we can't tax our brains with dissecting the issues threatening to destroy our prosperity, but we can list every fake challenge on Drag Race, Project Runway, American Idol, America's Top Model and Dancing With The Stars. Even though the competition isn't real and is totally manipulated for entertainment, we sit and root for these phony challenges while our jobs go to foreign countries courtesy of corporations which our "broke" government gives tax breaks for outsourcing them. CHECK!

4.Have the most right wing Supreme Court ever kill restrictions on the amount of corporate donors can give to campaigns. That way corporations can afford to bombard us with so many lies that we start to believe them. And we're already disoriented, so HAY, GURL! CHECK!

5.To protect their interests, have the corporations develop such convenient technology that we can't live without it. (I'm aware of the irony involved in me sharing my thoughts on facebook, which totally has me hooked.) That way, we might hear that AT&T funded the insane tea party, but there's no way we can give up our iphones so we don't really care that we're enriching the enemies of our own civil rights! Oh girl! Just change your middle name on facebook to Equality and hand AT&Tea the gun to shoot you in the face with. Oh wait! Can I buy you bullets for that gun, too? I can't live without grindr! CHECK!

6.As if that weren't enough, have AT&Tea fund the end of net neutrality so that the enemy is controlling the information that we do receive. Lazy, distracted and ignorant, we wouldn't know where to turn or how to find it if we did suddenly sense that something was very, VERY wrong or..GASP..start to care. Caring? About our own situations? Form thoughts of our own? Dissect something? No, that Bunny's crazy. Let me tune her out. CHECK!

END RESULT: The stupidest, most short-circuited generation of Americans to date. And you thought the last couple of generations were off! CHECK!

A far-out, diabolical plan...or mission accomplished?

However, the Pentagon says that they are too busy to testify. An insider quoted below claims that the real reason is there's no success to report. So let's stay on in Afghanistan for another year and then they'll testify. Even if we're still losing in a year, the contractors will have had another year of profitable gigs which you and I will pay for. It's a good thing we're not in a recession pinching pennies or anything like that. We've all got plenty of $ to spare, right? Why don't we just wait until the new 2014 exit date and evaluate the war after it ends?

WHY DO GAYS LOVE CHER SO MUCH?

I'M QUOTED IN A GAY.COM ARTICLE ON CHER'S GAY APPEAL:

But the outlandish wardrobe is only half the story; it’s also about how you work it. “I recall one Vegas special,” says entertainer Lady Bunny, “where she made an entrance sliding through a massive high heel shoe and then proceeded to snatch off the side ponytails from her headpiece. A hair change, mid-number? Now that’s show biz magic! It’s exactly the kind of excess gays love.”

MORE: GAY.COM

DON'T ASK, DON'T GO!

I sure hope that Don't Ask, Don't Tell is repealed. Gays deserve equal rights across the board. Case closed.

That said, why on earth would anyone want to enlist right now?

The two unpopular wars we're fighting barely even came up in the mid-term elections. Except with gays--for some reason we're eager to join in the fight. Dan Choi, the poster boy for repeal, recently equated the bullying that the legislature engages in by keeping DADT in place with the bullying that's caused a rash of teen suicides that shocked the gay community. OK, so I guess all gays agree that bullying is a bad thing. And that no one should do it, right? As the most hawkish nation, the US is the biggest and meanest bully in the world! Yet Choi and others want to bully innocent, unarmed civilians in other countries? It's not logical. Either bullying is wrong or it isn't. At least the schoolyard bullies just harass people verbally and their victims' suicides are optional. The Pentagon flies soldiers to occupy foreign countries for indefinite killing sprees. Oh, but we call it Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The Iraq war is a blight on our nation's reputation and the healing can never begin until we've aired out this festering sore. It was a huge mistake and yet we're still at it? You shouldn't seek to fight in it--you should seek to fight against it ever being waged in the first place. We also need to combat whatever conditions made it possible to be tricked into such a gruesome mess so that it never happens again. Those conditions would include recognizing that George W. Bush couldn't have gone to war if it weren't for Americans' own bloodthirsty wish to avenge 9/11 in the wrong country and also the failure of the media, which even liberal bastions CNN and the NY Times admitted to, to ask harder questions of the Bush administration leading up to the war.

I'm not so such a naive peacenik that I'd suggest disbanding that the military. Of course we need a trained reserve of brave men and women ready to protect us from attacks. But that's not what the military's been up to in Iraq, is it? They're protecting the profits of the military industrial complex's kingpins and that's not a noble cause to lay your life down for. Nor is fighting Al Quaeda in Afghanistan long after they've left the country. Far from enhancing our nation's security, our actions in that part of the world will probably spark generations of future terrorists to attack us. And we're sent into battle by a legislature full of fat cats which mostly never served, but they'll gladly send pawns to do their dirty work protecting the wealth of the corporations which line their pockets. During the Bush years, the Pentagon prevented images of soldiers' coffins from being shown on the news. I guess the dead ones might discourage new recruits. And at all costs, we must keep on playing this dirty game which the troops always lose.

Now if gays just want any job in a crummy economy and can stand bloodshed and withstand post-traumatic stress disorder, then the military’s a fine choice. But perhaps an independent contractor could hire you instead. They may not offer the same benefits as military service and there are no medals to be won, but you're still technically working for the US government. You won't be hampered by all of those pesky military regulations and you can continue to work long after combat has ended.

There can be no honor from serving in a shameful war. Anyone attempting to enlist now is condoning the horrors of of it. If fairness and equality is really the concern of gay people, then we can't sign up to use force to impose our misguided will as we've been doing in Iraq for almost a decade. As people who've been bullied ourselves, we of all people must value compassion. Dan Choi has claimed that "War is a force that gives us meaning." Anyone who needs to obtain their meaning from something as depraved as preemptive attacks against innocent countries is at odds with any civil rights movement I can conceive of. Last night on Rachel Maddow, discharged Lt. Colonel. Victor Fehrenbach described his service by saying "It's my life." Too bad that he can't live his "life" without causing else's death. Of course gays deserve civil rights. But Iraqis deserve them just as much as we do.

MIND BOGGLING!

Here's one for all you republican women! I hope that you're all housewives since equal pay for women doesn't interest your party. Seriously, what is the argument against equal pay for women? This is mind-boggling. If there;s someone out there who supports lower pay for women, I'd really love to know your reasons why. Gays, transgendered and ethnic minorities please note: this is proof that republicans never support advancing civil rights which don't have to do with gun ownership.

If the right wing has to scramble to fault Obama for a book inspired by his daughters, then they really must feel that actual GOP gripes about his policy don't make much sense or won't get much traction with voters. C'mon. There are real things to fault the man with. But his children's book?

NONSENSE FROM THE FEAST OF FUN

PUTRID!

Just when I had made my peace with Ke$ha I'm shocked by the poverty of her lyrics in today's #1 downloaded song in itunes. "We've got hot pants on enough?" How do wear any kind of pants enough'? You don't. She's just so dumb that it's all she could think of to rhyme with in love? Or just knows that her fans are too dum...b to care? Please tell me that there's an explanation for the Jesus on my necklace line. I realy don't expect a lot from lyrics, but sense might come in handy. Oh, and this is her song dedicated to gay bullying victims.

Hot and dangerous

If you’re one of us, then roll with us

‘Cause we make the hipsters fall in love

And we’ve got hot-pants on enough

And yes of course because we’re running this town just like a club

And no, you don’t wanna mess with us

Got Jesus on my necklace

RAND PAUL'S REVERSAL

You know how we always bitch about politicians who renege on campaign promises once in office? Rand Paul has one of the quickest about faces I've seen. The tea partier now admits that shutting down big government would lead to chaos and has backed down on his dislike of earmarks--both central issues to his campaign. Hi...s other big issue? Repealing health care reform although the fool is apparently upset that his government-run health care for newly elected congressmen doesn't start for a month. So he only want socialized medicine for himself. Geez Louise!

PRINCESS WHO?

An english neighbor just asked me what I thought of Prince Williams girlfriend and I told her that it was pretty much off of my radar. I'd seen Kate's pic and thought she was cute and that was it. But this article from Salon.com claims that everything from malaise to tampons to terrorists have killed the royal magic--and that this couple are no Charles and Princess Di.




I wonder if another reason that the older couple were more interesting because Di was much prettier than Charles was handsome. While part of us wanted to see a real life fairy tale romance and the trappings of royalty, another part wants to see a trophy wife leave her man despite his social status.

This so bizarre. A Beatles medley with Cher and Tina Turner and KATE SMITH? Bless her for trying but Kate's kind of struggling with the 70's choreography and pop sound but bless her heart for trying. Her glasses with no make-up and rhinestoned bouffant is wild--especially with no make-up to speak of. But she does look trimmer than I ever remember seeing her--not easy to do in white. Cher and Tina both look and sound great, and watch Tina start percolating like a chicken when Day Tripper kicks in. I wonder who dreamed up adding black people with instruments for the end of Hey Jude?

SIMON DOONAN ON JACQUELINE SUSANN'S STYLE




Simon, How did you first discover Jacqueline Susann?

Growing up in the U.K. and seeing movies like Harold Robbins' "The Carpetbaggers" and then "Valley," I got the distinct impression that contemporary sexuality was an American invention. Glossy, luxurious sexiness was totally missing from the Brit landscape. Then I saw the famous Diane Arbus photo of Jackie sitting on her husband's hairy thigh and I thought: "Oh! Now I totally get it! It's all about SWINGING!"

How was Jackie perceived in the U.K.?

American broads always seemed to be much more tarty than their U.K. equivalents. Ditto J.S. In the U.S. you had Jackie with her rock-hard bee-hive and lashes - in the U.K. we had Iris Murdoch in a tweed skirt and bowl haircut. I guess we had Barbara Cartland, but she was sort of in a category all by herself.

As Creative Director of Barneys, you are in charge of all the windows for the store. What would an homage to Jackie look like
