They get shitstorm, we get schadenfreude. It's a fair exchange.
She's never met a conspiracy theory she didn't like. I see..... a very Norma Desmond-ish future for NG... wandering around a decaying house, calling dead or nonexistent people to account for imaginary crimes...
Would say any flippancy quotient about addiction is at a low point right now. I've been grokking on WH videos (like a lot of other people) and just getting reminded of her soaring voice and superb talent. Although addiction is a multi-faceted disease and it is too simplistic to say that a lack of self-worth is at the heart of it, it is most definitely a component and you look at this woman's life and talent and just ask "why?" There's just no answer. Didn't she almost have it all.
The gold standard of star-turn National Anthems (somebody should point this out to Steven Tyler).
In the video for "I Wanna Dance with Somebody," she was the absolute embodiment of talent, effervescence, and joie de vivre. Those flirty skirts! The bouncing! That voice! So sad to see such subsequent wreckage and now this shocking (sorta) early death. I hope she has peace now.
Daulerio threw chum in the water and just gave me the opportunity to do what I'd wanted to do for a while, which is quit cold.
It's only creepy when the inmates are running the asylum.
I think Denton's secret/non-published strategy is to run Gawker Media like a modeling agency.... ban the olds and just keep stuffing the ranks with younger and stupider.
Give me a while to figure out what putting out involves in these parts. Hopefully it's not anything like behavior suitable to a Yale frat party.
Hey, there -- I'm a CrassTalk n00b -- sort of. A refugee from banmageddon over on Gawker after having committed commenter seppuku the other day. I see many familiar names... wanted to say hello.
Thank you for this post! Morris' work will NEVER go out of style. I live near East Aurora, NY, home of the Roycroft movement. Years ago, I was privileged to see a Morris exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum. They had set up a full production line showing how he made his hand-blocked wallpapers. The line was around 50 feet long, and hanging above on pulleys were these heavy blocks of wood with a metal pattern that would be inked, then pulled down and blocked into the paper. Each PIECE of the complex design was imprinted this way. I can NEVER get enough of this style of decorative arts.
